C&afcook from which each warrant issued is taken and a record of same Jcept on the stub, and we have adopt--eas our rule and method for arriving .3.0 the Saancial condition of the County., fa this calculation, that whenever a waxrrct, issued by the Clerk of this Codrt, tails to appear on the book of ctbe Jounty Treasurer as paid, that i same is 'not paid and is therefor count- sA as an outstanding indebtedness .against the county. We presume that the Court is con- versaat and familiar with the system al keeping the recoids of the County pertaining to its financial condition, rand therefore it knows the difficulty of-ce- af -d -- to be encountered in checking up to find out its exact financial condition. There :'s no record known to us in ex-- , Istaase showing the financial condi-:tloathe county at any time. No We &i!ance from which to begin could only check the warrants issued, and those paid, back for several years, and assume that all back of there had 'ieenpaid. We believe that we have .checked the records with sufficient care tltat our figures, hereinafter are substantially correct, how-evein any such task as this, there .is liable to be small errors that would . change the balance a few dollars one o' -d, r, way or the other. la making this report we are not considering any money appropriated Xo the purpose of building State aid roads in this county, as that fund is appropriated and set apart to a certain, road and no warrants are issued on that fund except such as are paid out of the funds on hands for that .purpose, and that no more or no less secpended on said State aid purpose at-antime, than that derived from a r particular appropriation of a certain 5ear. Therefore there can be no indebtedness against thislund outstanding in warrants and in order to ar- rive at the real financial condition of sfihe County, it will not be necessary i to consider that character of appro-unations. il'e will then consider the outstaud-i$- r warrants iseued for general road .purposes ai.'i payable out of the gen - eral road (w- i for the years 1916, 1917. . and 918, .md the outstanding wary p - rants issued for general expenses and , . payable out of the general funds for 1916, 1917, and 191S.

The Fiscal Court has the right to make certain appropriations as provided by law, and each appropriate shall be paid out of some specific fund provided for in the order making the levy. TneJ Adair Fiscal Court, at its April term, 1917,;jmade a levy for the year 1917, for the purpose of paying claims outsanding and to pay the current expenses for said year. Yet at the October term of said Court it allows claims for current expenses for the year 1917, and makes the warrants for same payable out of 1918 GenerarFund. We use this year for an illustration only as it was the last year. We are unable to understand why the current expenses for the year in which the levy was made to pay same, should not be made payable out of that year. We believe that under the law the county should keep its revenues and expenses for each year separate from the revenues and expenses of every other year. We recommend that this be done as we do not believe this Court has a legal right to allow claims for the expenses of one year and make same payable out of the revenue of the next year. If it could do this, it could just as well, in our opinion, allow claims and make same payable out of the levy for the year ten years from this. The claims allowed at the last October term of this court and payable out of the 1918 levy are as much an indebtedness against the county as the claims allowed and made payable out of the 1916 levy or the 1917 levy, for the reason that the claims allowed last October were for current expenses and road expenses then due and should have been made payable out of the 1917 levy. We will further say in regard to the indebtedness of the county, that the figures upon which this report was based we made near the first of March and that the claims outstanding and the money in the hands of the said County Treasurer were as herein stated at that time,, but since then the said Treasurer may have paid additional claims out of the money in his hands, but that same would not change the financial condition of tiie county for the reason that both claims and money were taken into consideration in arriving at this report. Thai tiie Treasurer now has more than enough money iu his hands to pay all road claims payable out of the levies for 191G and 1917, and that same should be paid at once if not now paid. We further report that in checking up the said warrants issued, we found several mistakes in same, and where sufficient sums were involved in said errors to justify it, we had same corrected, and in this way collected the sum of $70 00 due the county by reason of said errors, which sum has been turned over to the Treasurer of the County to the credit of the General Fund. We would further report that as directed by this Court we made a set tlement with G. T. Herriford, late Judge of Adair County, as to the funds in his hands arriving from the collection of toll on the Columbia and Campbellsville turn pike lie had no papers'by which he could show us the amount that he had taken in, or paid out, other than his bank accounts and we made said settlement with him by accepting his said bank accounts as correct, which showed S9.17 to his credit in the Bank of Columbia, and $1,100.02 to his credit in the First National Bank, making the sum of $1,109.19 in his hands belonging to said pike fund, which amount he then turned over to Judge W. S. Sinclair, to whom it was directed by you to be paid.
