IT TOLLS THE TRUTH
And Puta the Mark of Falsehood on
the Daly Vote-Catcher, the "In
creased Debt" Bugaboo.
The Seuii-Annual Statement of the
county oflicers preentd to the taxpay
ers of Lake County today by The Ex
aminer is the best argument present
able to refute the statement of the po
liti ul enemies of the Republican
county administration who are trying
to make the taxpayers believe that
Lake county is gradually going deeper
and deeper in debt. The leport is a
glaring refutation of the statement so
ariniduously and iersiHtcnlly circulated
all over the county aa a Dr. Daly vote
cat her. The figures do not lie. The
reRirt is sworn to by the Clerk, Sheriff
It is not The Examiner's purpose to
mislead the taxpayers by claiming that
all the credit for the excellent financial
standing of the county is due to the ad
ministration of the present County
Court, but this paper would have the
public know that the present sheriff,
backed up and working under the or
ders of the County Court of Lake
County in the collection of taxes, has
made it possible to show this excellent
condition of p'iblio affairs at this time.
It has been charged, and is still being
bruited about, that the County Court,
through extravagance of public funds
and defective business management,
has failed to reduce the public debt,
but on the contrary, has continued to
run the county deeper and deeper in
debt during its incumbency. " The facts
do not bear out the statement.
' Wheu Chas. Tonningsen was elected
to the County Judgeship the public
debt was t09,OG3.00. On the first day ot
April, 11)02, the actual indebtedness
was H5.tlO4.02, and today it scarcely
reaches 143,000. On April 3, three
days after the report was made, Treas
urer Lee Beall called in county war
rants to the amount of $15,147.53, cut
ting off further interest on that amount
and reducing the debt to about $45,000.
The Treasurer's books show that today
the indebtedness of Lake county only
runs back two years and four months.

And today, also, Lake county warrants
are Hi'llmn at par.
! In two years more, under the present
conduct of public affairs, Lake county
'. should be practically out of debt and
w ill be if the wealthy men of Lake
county are compelled to pay their just
proportions of taxes, the same as the
poor man does.
There has always been a disposition
on the part of the wealthier cIbsmss in
this county to evade the law in paying
their taxes, but Asaeesor John Blair is
determined to use every means at his
command to compel the wealthy class
to give in their eworu statements in a
just and equitable proportion. For
this reason it is probable that As
sessor Blair's re-election will be warmly
con let-led by those who evade their
There is also considerable comment
on the increase in taxes this year, and
the blame, if any is merited, is laid at
the door of the County Court. It is a
well kuow n fact that the State tax has
gradually increased, and the Court
must make the levy to meet this in
crease. In some districts there are
special school taxes to be paid, but this
cannot be attributed to the County
To sum it all op these matters coming
betore the people at this time is for
cammign thunder to be used by the
fellows who are out who want to get
in. It is fallacy for any man to make
the statement that if Dr. Daly ia elected
County Judge he will reduce the taxes.
He says he will, and it is repeated by
his trusted lieutenants, but the state
ment is absurd. It it claimed that be
cause he bas been successful in bis own
business ha would be equally aa success
ful in managing the county business.
Managing one'a own private business
affairs successfully la accomplished by
various methods o( shrewdness and often
by deceit. The shrewd man gets the
better of bis mora credulous neighbor in
business matters. In his private affairs
he ia not compelled to publicly acknow
ledge his methods of doing business.
But, as a conductor of a public business
everything must be open and above
board there is no cover under which
to hide business methods in public
The Examiner believes that the pres
ent condition of affairs in Lake county,
as shown by the aemi-annual report,
will prove gratifying to the taxpayers
who have been misled by the "iucreased
comity indebtedness" story circulated in
the interest of Dr. Paly, and against
County Judge Tonningsen and Commia
