The Fever Decreasing at' Matamoras
Increasing at Brownsville.
Galveston, Sept 9. A News Mata
moraa special says: The yellow fever
epidemic is rapidly disappearing from
this city. During the 24 hours ending
this morning at 9 o'clock, there were
but two cases of fever recorded, and so
far this week but seven persons have
died in this city of that disease, an
enormous reduction from the same pe
riod during the past two weeks, and
the fever does not spread to any alarm-
in e extent among the rancnes.
A report from Brownsville says that
the fever seems to be increasing slow
ly. The official report for the last 24
hours shows only 48 new cases and two
deaths for that period. Tne relief com
mi ttee furnished aid yesterday to87
families. Col Grasty is reported to-day
as dying. VYm Scanion is very low.
Several new cases have broken out
among the soldiers stationed here. Maj
Witherell's son is down. Unless funds
are placed in the mail contractor's
hands we will soon be without mails.
Trading Ofl the Pennsylvania Land
Philadelphia, Pa., Sept. 9. The
Times to-day publishes a letter from
Ool. A. K. McClure, Editor-in-chief of
that paper, addressed to F. P. O'Malley.
Secretary of the Central Branch Land
League at Scranton, Pa., in reference
to the charge made by the Times that
certain assumed leaders of the Irish
Land League were bargaining with
leaders of the Republican party for the
transfer or sale of 30,000 Irish votes.
The letter is of great length and reiter
ates in detail the charge originally
made, which is that the contract was to
be made with Cameron on a basis of
the removal of Lowell from England
to enable Edward O'Meigher Congdon
to mislead the Irish, and a payment of
a liberal amount of money to Congden.
Tbe Star Route Jury Asks for Further
Washington, D. C, Sept. 9. The
jury in the Star Route cases came into
court shortly after ten o'clock and an
nounced that they had not agreed upon
a verdict, and asked for further in
structions. These were given by Judge
Wylie at considerable length, and their
general tendency was strongly against
the defendants. At their own request
the jury was allowed to take their notes
to the jury room, and again retired.
They will report at two o'clock, to
which time court took a feeess.
THE OTHER SIDE.
REPUBLICAN AND DEMOCRATIC
A Reply to Mr. C. A. Cook
Chairman of the Warren
Board of Commissioners.
Warkenton, August 28, 1882. The
following is an accurate and true state
ment of cur finances from the records,
under Democratic boards, and also a
similar one for a s ries of years, em
bracing the financial administration of
county affairs under Republican boards,
in none ot wnicn years did they levy
any special taxes by legislative authori
ty. The following statement shows the
amounts disbursed of general and school

In the total amounts of general and
school funds disbursed by Democratic
boards as shown in the above statement
is included the sum of $13,114.81 of the
general fund and the sum of $7,021.21
of school fund, which sums were in part
the accumulations of several years
taxes, levied and collected by their pre
decessors, the Republican boards, over
and above the constitutional limitation
and over and above the necessities of
The flagrancy of
tional levies, which
below, is the more
is, fully explained
apparent when we
state that in August, 1878, the time for
the levying of taxes for the next fiscal
year, the Republican board, knowing
that the county was free from debt,
and that there was more than fifteen
thousand dollars general county fund
in the Treasurer's hands, the greater
part of which was placed there by the
sheriff a week before that time, decided
not to levy any county tax on property,
but did illegally levy and collect 61
cents on the poll, making $1,625.65,
which the Democratic board refunded.
And further, notwithstanding these
unwarranted, unlawful and unneces
sary levies by the Jiepublican boards:
during these back years, there was
money in the Treasury only occasional
ly, and county scrip or orators from 1873
to 18T8 were generally sold for from 50
to 60 cents in the dollar. On the pther
hand, the county scrip stoce th Demo
cratic board took charge has always
been par and the credit of the county
A No. 1.
In August, 1879, when the Democratic
board, with the Justices, met to levy
taxes for the next fiscal year, after dis
cussion and mature consideration, they
concluded that the money in the treas
ury, to-wit, $7,376 03, with a small loan,
would be sufficient to defray the cur
rent expenses of the county and save
cost of collecting the amount needed,
and they determined not to levy any
tax for county purposes. So that under
the administration of the Democratic
board for the two years beginning Sep
tember 1, 1878, and ending September
1, 1880, there were no taxes levied for
county purposes on property or polls.
It is to be further noted, that out of
the general fund above received there
was expended the sum of thirteen nun
drerTtlollars for repairs and improve
ments made upon the poor house' and

In addition to the abote, the ,Repub
lican Beards for th five Tears inclu-
(led in the table,, collected, the, sum of
$13,11481 general fund and $6,021.21
school fund more than the table shows
as disbursed, and turned the same over
to the Democratic Board as before sta
ted; which sums added to the aggre
gate general and school funds disburs
ed; makes the total levies and collec
tions by them for the five years $93,
713 48. Of this.sum thirty-one thousand
three hundred and sixty-nine dollars
and ninety four cents' was levied and
collected illegally and unconstitution'
ally from the hard earnings of our
peaceful and law-abiding citizens, for
the Constitution says the "tax on a poll
shall be equal on each to the tax on
property valued at three hundred dol
lars," and it further says, "the State and
county capitation tax combined shall
never exceed two dollars on the head,"
therefore the tax on $100 worth of
property cannot, except by special act
and for special purposes be more than
one-third of two dollars that is 66
cents. Now then, in 1873 the total of
State tax levied was 50 cents on $100
.worth of property, which, deducted
from 66. the maximum rate fixed bv
the constitution, leaves 16 cents as
the maximum rate that could lawfully
be levied by the cotinty, but the rec
ords show that the Republican Board
levied 48 cents on the $100 worth of
property deducting then 16 cents, the
amount which they eould levy from 46
cents, the amount wnicn cney aid un
lawfully levy, leaves an illegal and un
constitutional excess or 5295 cents on
every $100 worth of property in the
county, and as tbe aggregate value of
property in the county that year was
$2,251,208.00, this multiplied by the ex
cessive 29 cents, gives $6,678.58 in ex
cess ef what law allows on property,
Ana tnese unconstitutional levies con
tinued during the whole series of five
years. The following table shows these
unconstitutional levies in detail on

And furtbf r, the Republican Boards
repeatedly allowed the sheriff to give
promissory notes for large amounts in
payment of balances due by him on tax
lists in his settlements with the Treas
urer, and turned over to him the new
tax list, when tbe law is imperative
that they shall not permit any
sheriff to have succeeding tax
list until he has accounted for and
paid over all moneys due on former
list, and thesw notes were allowed for
years to lie idle in the treasury, and too
when county scrip was going at a heavy
discount. They also paid a large
amount of interest, to wit, $1,088.78 on
county scrip for the years 1873, 1874 and
part of 1875.
We have left out of this jcomparison
the present year's operations for the
reason that the Bherilf has not paid the
whole of the taxes levied and due for
said year, he being behind on account
of general fund $2,9286, and on ac
count of school fund $4,827.58.
Suit has been brought according to
law on his bond, which is absolutely
good, being justified for about $30,000.
The county is not In debt, except for
$3,500 recently borrowed, $1,488 of
whieh was in the treasury on the first
of.August, From this, it is apparent
that if tne amount due by the sheriff
had been paid in at the proper time no
loan, would have been necessary on the
part of the county.
Erom all of the above it appears con
clusively, that tbe annual county ex-penditures-for
ordinary purposes under
Kerffitilican . rule .$10,300.18
ana those under Democratic
Z rule were, ,.,.. .7,341.76
showing an arinjial saving un

And that the antihal expendi

ocratic rule were,..,,,. $5,124.80
and those under Republican
rule were......... 4,615 30
Showing increased annual ap
propriation unaer Demo
cratic Board,...., 509 50
It is proper to state ' In conclusion,
that the public schools under Demo
cratic rule are more numerous, more
largely attended, and -conducted by
more competent teachers than under
