The county commissioners met
yesterday with a lull attendance.
The principal business before the
board was the awarding of the de delinquent
linquent delinquent tax list to one of the pa
pers. The newspapers of the
county all entered the contest
with the exception of the Marion
Times and the Belleview paper.
All of the board being democrats,
and the Banner the paper that has
had the work heretofore, having
no politics, it was expected by
many that one of the papers
known to be democratic would be
the one selected for the printing of
the delinquent tax list for 1894.
But it seems that the board had
forgotten how the Banner worked
against them. They have forgot forgotten
ten forgotten the true old J effersonian dem democracy,
ocracy, democracy, and will favor those papers
who don't know themselves where
they stand. It is not justice for
one paper to have Viis printing
from year to year, which amounts
to from $1, 200 to $1,800 per year.
One thing gets monotonous after
so long, and should have a change
occasionally. In time the Banner
will become married to this job,
and then could not get along
without it. There was very little
other business .before the board,
and the entire business ? was fin finished
