K-arcely any one who know Billy
llameraley ever dreamed that the mat
rimonial bee was Lulling in his Uinnet,
and that he intended breaking the
ranks of ItachelorlusKl lo join the army
of Hemslicts, and become staid man ol
family and a lover ol home comlorla,
but such a step has he taken. The Iihc
py event look place yesterday, April
' i, at .'I p. in. at thu residence ol bis
mother, Mrs. M. J. llameraley, when
County Judge Chas. Tomiingson Bxike
the oleum word that joined in matri
monial bonds tbtt hearts and bands ol
William K. HamerslfV and Mrs. Mar
garet M. 1 till. Duly a few very mti
mate friends, and relatives of the groom,
were prehent to witness the nuptials
The affair was one of those "quiet wed
dings" one reads aoout so often, but the
siualluess of the crowd ol witnesses did
not detract from the happiness ami
pleasure of bride aud groom aud in
vited guests. After the ceremony and
hearty congratulations had been ex
tended to the newly wedded couple, all
present were invited to partake of an
excellent wedding feast, prepared by
the generous hostess, "Grandma" Hani-
The groom is probably one of the best
known men in Lake county and has a
large number of friends who will wish
him good fortune and happiness in his
married lifu. The bride is a resident of
Vistillis and is highly esteemed hv thoce J
who know her well. Mie is jut-t the
woman to make huine a comfort and
husband happy.
ine i-x a miner joins with manv
friends in wishing Mr. and Mrs. Ham
ersley all the joy, bliss and happiness of
wedded life.
The Jumbled, Conglomerated Mass of Unreliable

culator Disproved by the Records of Lake
County and a Pleasing Campaign Story
is Properly Nipped in the Hud!
Owing to the fact that there are many conflicting re
ports in cireulatiou in relation to the financial condition
of Lake County, and particularly covering a period of
time from July, 1808, to April, 1902, I make the following
statement taken from the Records in my office and in my
custody, which shows the amount of money received and
on what account the same has been disbursed:

dehtf-diiews of Lake County would be
on April 1, lm'J: The average yearly
running expenses of Lake County are
W.OOU.OO; however, 1 will make my
estimate on my last report, iMivering the
time from Octolier 1, 1901, to April 1,
1102. !hH report shows that f l,0S4..93
have been iiwued in County Warrants,
H,l8.3 for County purpose t7,14i.OO
iu sralp bounty warrants. This would
make f ir the ensuing year $17,877.80
for County purioses aud $14,212.00 for
scalp bounty, making a total of $32,100
8l;of thia amount $14,292.00 for scalp
Ixiunty purfNtses the btate would reim
burse Lake County in the sum of $9,528.
00. w hich is applicable to the payment
of County Warrants. Then on the let
day of April 1902 there was remaining
unpaid taxes on the Assessment Roll
for the year 1901 which is applicable to
the payment of County Warrants, the
sum of $3,740.00. And tke amount of
money received for fe-i and otbec
source which is turned into the General
Fund and ia applicable to the payment
of County Warrants averages $2000.00
yearly, making a total of $15,268 appli
cable to the payment of County War
rants. The total indebtedness April 3,
1902, was $45,004.02, estimated amount
of warrants iaeued for preceeding year
$32,169.83, aud estimated interest se
cured on sum total $3,300.00 making a
grand total of $81,074.78. Now deducting
the amount applicable to the payment
of County Warrants $15,2U8,.00, would
leave the indebtedness on April 1, 1903,
$65,800.76. Then, in January 1903 the
Sheriff would receive the Assessment
Hull for the year 190?, and the amount
on said Roll applicable to the payment
of County Warrants, taking in cousider-
ation the Roll for the year 1901, would
be $22,000.00, thus again reducing the
indebtedness to $43,800.78 at a date be
tween April 1st aud loth. 1903.
The foregoing statement ia made on
the very highest rating I could give,
and in my opinion Cdtlld not reach the
figures given, for the following reasons:
1st. I do not think there will be as
many scalps of w ild animals presented
in the coming year as were presented
the past year.
2nd. Heretofore warrants were issued
on the General Fund for the building
and repairing of County roads; now
there is a road fund with $2,603.53
therein, which is mi ample amount to
put the roads in condition for the com
ing year.
3rd. The small pox epidemic w as an
unavoidable expense of $1,130.82, which
we trust is stamped out.

Where the Shoe Finches.
The County Judge is the only ollicer
whose election would interfere with The
Examiner's graft. Funny, isn't it!
If legitimate work at legitimate prices
is a "graft" then The Examiner pleads
guilty, l'.ut, great Scott 1 Wouldn't our
friend dow n the street like to have the
chance to "graft!" That's where the
shoe pinches, and is what l .ts made the
Hustler yell for year pact the desire
for public patronage. Tli the con
