for the evening at a meeting of the
Louisburg Kiwanis Club held at Wel
come Inn on Friday night. May 23.
Hit Subject was "What mates some

reach his goal.

REV. S. L. BLANTON DELIVERS
Franklin County Will Have
Complete Survey by Experts
The following letter written to Col.
C. I* McGhee, Chairman, Board of
Franklin County Commissioners, of
Franklin County is self explanatory:
Dear Sir:?Your request that this de
partment make a surrey of your
county, and point out to you*- board
anything that we think should be
done that ycu are not doing in order
to hare a more economical and busi
ness-like management of the county's
affairs, has been recelred. I will take
great pleasure in assigning a man to
do this, but it is impossible for me
t<> do it right now, as we are extreme
ly busy and hare similar requests
from a large number of counties.
I am, of course, familiar in a gen
eral way with what your board has
been doing since tbey went into office
and I hare pointed out to the com
missioners of other counties some of
tbe things that You had been doing
and suggested that they fellow your
plan, particularly your plan of glrlng
etch commissioner a certain part of
the government to be responsible for
and make a report on tt each meeting,
end also requiring that each county
officer make a report each month on
the operation of his office and the
iounty accountant to file a complete
financial statement, and going over
these matters In executive session
before going into other business. By
doing this, you found out exactly how
your county stood and it Is the only
way that commissioners can conduct
the affairs of a county in a business
like way. Also, the steps that you
took in collecting back taxes, which
I believe amounted to around $75,000,
which yop had in the form of land
sale eertlficatesT^wben you first went
into office. Your county, like many
others, had aot been making effort
to collect these taxes, therefore, all
a man had to do to pay Bra taxes was
to let his land be sold. This, of
course.' meant that those that were
paying were being taxed the next year
again to carry those that had not
paid. In other words, expenses were
going on and the money to meet the
necessary bills of the county was hav
ing ,to be raised and those that were
not paying their taxes were not. car
rying their part of the load, and all
taxpayers were not being treated
I mention these things to let you
know that this department appreciat
ed the efforts that you and youh- board
have been making to put your county
on a business basis, and I will there
fore be glad to make a survey as re
quested Just as soon as it is possible
to do so.
Yours very truly,
CHAS. M. JOHNSON.
