Ainsworth is still at tha head ot the
Records and Pension Office of the

peculiar conditions surrouudiug the

Mr. Editor : It is refreshing, if
not amusing, to read your apoto
yetic batch of suppositious in ans
swer to a simple question in last
week's paper. A simple answer
would have sufficed without a need
less appeal to public sympathy for
a manifest mistake ot judgmeut on
the part of county commissioner,
JJut the alarming frequency of these
mistakes should not be overlooked
especially when they are so strongly
emphasized by a call for a special tax.
The commissioners should reiuem-.
ber that the.y are fiduciary as weii
as disbursing officers, and that, r he
preseut or prospective funds of the
couuiy can be properly expended
only when it is done lor the legiti
mate liabilities of the county. Tbert
is none of your suppositions about
this statement, but there would e
if they were to indemnify the Reg
ister of L'eeds or Sheriff for private
losses, suffered by fi.e or flood,
simply because they were county
officers. Because Mr. Baxter is iHe
keeper ot a charitably institution of
mecoumy ooes nor ei.urw mm to

of keeper of the Home on account of
his intense sympathy aud love for

ing thereby to leather his own

had charge of it he ha lucreas-d in
material wealth untif he is consid

aud above Ihe shad-w of public
chanty. The commissioners kueA
this when they contributed pros
pective public funds to partially
make good his private losses. They
could w th t-qu-d justice havo given
aid to Messrs. P. 13. and Thomas

do not want, iu a man having the

just what the commissioners have
done, but I heir honesty of purpose
will cot be questioned. They simp-
ly desired to do a charitable deed, j

their own pocket book. )
It is a rejection upon the connty
to say that the benefits accruing to
Mr, Baxter from the action of the
comniihsioners would be indirectly
shared by the lumatedot the Ilome,
iu that it carries with it the impress
siou that they are not amply fed and

erned by a private financial ther
mometer which rises or falls as its
owner prospers. The per capita
