PUBLISHED EVERY FRIDAY an mum ROCKCASTLE 1 V V iHivdJfe Sipal 6. 1917 ESTABLISHED J887 VOLUME XXX MT. VERNON, COUNTY, KY., FRIDAY, JULY NUMBER 41 RECORD OF COUNTY JD DGE EXPOSED Promises Made Four Years Ago Not Kept. BOND FUNlTsQUANDERED Reckless Extravagance and Mismanagement Shown By The Records. TO THE REPUBLICANS OF ROCKCASTLE COUNTY: Since making my formal announcement for the Republican nomination for the office of County Judge, two other candidates have announced against me. In my announcement I gave to the Republicans of this county the platform upon which I am making my race. Neither of my opponents have favored the Republicans of the county with a statement of what they stood for. or what they would do if given the office ; except Mr. Griffin promises that if elected he will increase the load of taxation already heavy on the backs of the taxpayers of the county by taxing them to work the public county roads. Mr. Ballard makes no promises, whatever in his announcement, possibly because he made so many promises four years ago, none of which he kept. The republicans and taxpayers of the county have called upon me to give them some of the promises made by Mr. Ballard four years ago, and I hereby give the facts to them and you shall be the judge, from the facts, whether Mr. Ballard has kept his promises to the pe pie. His first promise was to serve the people as County Judge for $600 per year. The first year he served 1914, there was paid him as County Judge the sum of $816.00, $216 more than he promised to serve for; in 1915 there was paid him as County Judge $815, $215 more than he promised to serve for; in 191G there was paid him as County Judge $989.35, $389.35 more than he promised to serve for, and in 1917 he has collected as County Judge part of his salary of $800 and $10 on voucher; $210 more than he promised to serve the people for. This record shows that he has accepted a total of $3,430.35 for his services as County Judge, or $1,030.35 more than he promised to serve for. He promised also that he would only pay the County Attorney and County Superintendent a salary of $600 a year and by making this reduction in his salary and theirs save the taxpayers of the county $2,400 for the four years. This he has not done. Mr. Ballard promised to reduce the pauper claims of the county one-haand also furnish those in need. Prior to his administration there had been an allowance of $1,500 per year to care for the paupers of the county. The records show that in the year 1914 there was paid out $3,500.33; in 1915 $3,518.31 and in 1916 the sum of $2,584.03, at total of for three years. Instead of costing the taxpayers of the county $1,500 a year, it cost them $3,200.89 a year for the three years, and God knows what it will cost them this year. Mr. Ballard promised to abolish the court house janitor save the taxpayers $1,200 in four years. Did he do this? and Here are the facts as shown by the records. The first year of his term the janitor cost the county $735.65. The reason for this increased cost being that Mr. Ballard undertook to trample under foot a plain and unmistakable Statute law, which the courts and juries of the State would not permit him to do. The janitor had been paid $300 a year prior to his term of office and his ignorance of the law and mismanagement placed upon the taxpayers the cost of a law suit and the ex- lf $9,-602.67 Mr. Ballard promised that he would'pay his own tele- - TT O the KepubllCanS Ot KOCkCasUe U)Ullty: phone bills out of his own salary.

Here are the facts as shown by the records: When assistance of any one. Mr. Ballard came into office on January 1, 1914, there was a surplus in the treasury of $2,311.03. To my knowledge there Very respectfully, is now an indebtedness against the county of $15,484.17, and S. D.

Unpaid vouchers held by S. D. Lewis 929.00 Unpaid vouchers held by Dr. Lee Chestnut 120.00 After I found that the raise had been certified, I wrote to the Unpaid vouchers held by Wm.

The items constituting this indebtedness are represented by claims allowed, all of which are signed by same will be appreciated, I am, Very Respectfully, Mr. Ballard officially. The responsibility is on him. He is the CAM MULLINS, S. R. C." man who made the promise when he was asking the voters of the county to support him four years ago. Now, in view of "Frankfort, Ky., May 30, 1917. figures, I ask. has he kept his promises, so vital Cam Mullins, these facts and to the taxpayers of the county, and if he has failed to keep his Sheriff, Rockcastle County, promises, can he be trusted again? Dear Sir : Mr. Ballard, in closing his series of promises, says "I furYours of May 28, 1917, directed to me at Lanther promise and solemnly swear that no acts or deeds on my caster, Ky., was forwarded to me here. part will ever cause the good people of my beloved county to In regard to the raise on Rockcastle county, notice of look upon me with shame and regret." Is it possible that Mr. which I sent to your County Judge as required by law and day Ballard can look upon these promises made to the people four fixed for hearing, and on May 9, I received the following letyears ago and then upon his record showing that every prom ter, which is now on file here: "Mt.

Mr. Ballard's Board May llinst. G. M. Ballard, Co. Judge." The Board was failure to keep his promises is a slap in the face of every citi- - in session all that day and no one appeared for your county to zen in the county, and especially the voters who supported him make any defense on that day, (or any other time that I know four years ago. President Lincoln said : "You can fool all the f ) The Board on that day took final action and made a 5 per people part of the time and some of the people all the time, cent- raise on lands and 10 per cent, on town lots. Tomorrow, but you can't fool all the people all the time." Mr. Ballard, you May 31st. is the last day the Board meets and will finally ad will not be able to fool the Republicans of this county again by journ June 1st at 10 A. M. false promises. Respectfully, The attention of the taxpayers is called to another act on W. B.

After the recapitu- purpose of showing them the manner in which their taxes have lation sheets showing assessed valuation of all taxable property been increased, and as a further evidence of the disregard by in this county were sent to Frankfort, notice was given to the the County Judge of your interests and rights. The facts to County Judge as the law requires, that a raise of 5 per cent, which I have called your attention, taken together, conclusiveon the assessed valuation on land; a raise of 10 per cent, on ly show how the big indebtedness of the county came about the assessd valuation on Town Lots, and a raise of 5 per cent, and how your taxes are increased. If I am elected County on assessed valuation on personal property of the county war Judge these things will not happen. made by the State Board of Equalization. No effort was made The next proposition is the expenditure of the bond by the County Judge to have these raises taken off, or to even money in the building of turnpike roads in the county. I consecure a reduction of same. The assessed valuation of land sider it practically useless to enlarge on this subject, because made by the assessor of the county is $1,035,955. The raise by you all know that the county sold $100,000 in bonds and that the State Board of 5 per ct. increases this amount $51,797. The we have not exceeding four miles of finished turnpike. The assessed valuation of town lots made by the assessor is $26b bond fund is gone with the exception of $20,074.27, at pres360. The raise of the State Board of 10 per cent, increases ent in the banks, and it will more than take this amount to .his amount $26,456. The assessed valuation of personal prop- meet contracts already made on the road between Mt. Vernon erty made by the assessor is $300,279. The raise by the State and Roundstone, a distance of seven miles and a fraction. This Board of 5 per cent, increases this amount $15,013. By reason bond money has been expended in a most unbusiness-lik- e manl of the neglect of the County Judge the taxpayers of the coun ner, uo say me leasi. witn business metnoas employed we ty will pay on an increased valuation of $93,448.

Notwithstanding there is no money to finish the your own individual assessments and adding thereto the raise pikes, promises are being made by the County Judge that the of 5 per ct. on land, 10 per ct. on town lots and 5 per ct. on per- graded roads will be finished, which he knows to be an absosonal property. It was the duty of the county Judge to look af- lute impossibility.

We are proud of our boy3 who enlisted We believe that they, and those yet to go. will prove of worthy steel when tee testing time comes But there are other patriots. When the call came for us to help feed the uorld, al most every citizeu planted more crops and gardens than ever be fore. As a result of this, we have more land in cultivation that was ever in cultivation in the county before We are also cultivating these crops better than than we have any before. This is all tine, but we have not accomplished our object yet. We should not quit planting and cultivating. Every hill or row that has matured its crop should be planted iu a second ciop. This second crop will often times double the yield and the present value of a piece of ground. This second crop will not be harder on the laud aud will take the place of a crop of weeds that would come volunteer. No weeds should be allowed to grow in our fields and gardens. Land that will grow weeds will grow something to eat, and the weeds robs some hungry child of the food that could have been grown in its place. Every; thing indicates that our ptoduction is going to be good, , but our greatest test is the manner .in which we take care of what we produce.

Yours very sincerely, superintendant. The fees should Sherman Chasteen. make a sufficient addition to tin salaries of county judge and county attorney to give these of leers sufficient remnr.e ation If they will give proper attentioi to the work, their pay would be ample. Ibis reduction of salarie would give us $120o.0o annualh to help out on our toads or reduc our taxes This I48OO.00 wouh. look mighty good if we had ii now to complete the roads in this SilERMAN CHASTEEN nee in tins same office, to seive my people better and bring about thiugs that Rockcastle 'ounty should er.joy. I am an trdent supporter of Dixie High vay project and will as 1 have in he past do al! in my power to make it a realty. For better schools, churches, Su ulay Schools, farm improve , m.-ntclubs, I am ready to give my support and protection I thank ou for what you have done and wi'l appreciate your support in the coming Primary county. I hoped that the people will think this matter over and lets make a demand of the fiscal court that these reductions be made. If made by the present court, it will stand for four years and there is no d auger of these offices being made vacant on account of these reductions . W. J. Sparks. Rockcastle County. Sometime ago I told the voters that I did not consider it proper for Republicans to write news paper articles against each other; I am still of the same Opinion and am very reluctant to write this one: but my friends have advised and urged me to do so The people are being told, for the purpose of confusing their minds that I am not eligible for the office of County Attorney-- I if I hat I lack one day-an- d should be nominated and elected 1 would be turned out of office and a Democrat appointed by the Governor. In the first place, the people should know that the Governor does not appoint the County Attorney in case of a vacancy, but that the County-Judge- , only, has the power to ap point. In the second place, if I am not eligible and a legal candidate for the office, the law strictly forbids me taking any part in the primary as a candidate. If I am not a legal candidate, it will cost either or both of my opponents cr any one of their scared henchmen just fifty cents to kep me off the track. All that anyone has to do, is to goto the Circuit Court Clerk's office with fifty cents and secure an injunction against me running and that ends it. That would bi much cheaper easier and quicker than writing long expensive newspaper articles and letters and riding in the hot sun all over the County from now until August the 4th. If I am not a legal candidate, it is not only their right, but their duty as Republicans and citizens to keep me from running and I believe that every one who knows them knows that they or some one for them would do so. I registered as a legal, cpualitied candidate: They have had all chances and still have, to stop me Now, I ask you both and all your henchmen, who are spreading the slanderous falsehood, to try it Yes I dare ycu to try it. Now 'put up, or If you want a legal fihjht, I am ready; If you want a political fight, you can get all you want. But pull off your scheming masks and eome out in the open and tight like men. I will ride to the voteis with you; I will stump the Comity with you: I will fight it out with you in any way you choose, onlj lets tell the people the truth.

I understand that their expression is that of deep humanity and thepathosof it is touchingly beau- tiful, almost limpid purity; then they proceed to end the tou ching scene, and with the seriousness of a Vestal Virgin, making ready to serve before mysterious alters, read some cold, stern sections of law, some letters and may-b- e, an almanac. Be careful men. Don't be fooled; they are not my friends else they would not be telling such; neither do they know the facts of the cae. I know from the best legal authority in tht land, who know the facts, that I am eligible. The only disability connected with my candidacy, is common to us all that is, lack of votes. If you see fit to give me the nomination, 1 will certainly keep it and then go after the Democratic nominee with hammer and tongs in November, Yours heartily, B.B. Thompson. The Coolest Spot In Mt.

You can see from this that Mr. Griffin is willing to advise the voters to swallow the record of the present County Judge, hoof and horns. An appropriation made bv Mr. Ballard of the people's money to be handled by Mr. Griffin, probably accounts for Griffin's friendly feeling for Mr. Ballard, and inits expenditure he became so enthusiastic that he neglected last year, as overseer, to work his county road.
