County Treasurer J. C. Saun-
ders submit ted his first quarterly
report which covers a period from
Nov. 23, 1896, when he entered
upon the duties of the office, to
' Feb. 8. 1897, which has l>een ap-
proved by the commissioners*
court. There are six funds, viz:
the court house, county, jury,
road and bridge, available school
and permanent school funds.
The report shows the following to
be the condition of each fund:
Court House Fund.—Balance
on hand Nov. 23, $7927.48; re-
ceipts during quarter $8052.10;
disbursements, $20(1; balance on
County fund.—Amount receiv-
ed from predecessor in office Nov.
23, $4884.70; receipts of quarter
$12,159.21: disbursements $5344.-
55; balance on hand $11699.36.
Jury Fund.—Amount over-
drawn Nov. 23. $95.57: receipts
during quarter $339.47; disburse-
ments $174 57: balance on hand
Road and Bridge Fund.—
; Amount overdrawn Nov. 23,
| $9608.80; disbursements $3008.64.
: receipts $12214.47; Amount over-
j drawn Feb. 8, $402.97.
Available school fund—Dis-
bursements $26151.17; receipts
$25760.26: ainouut overdrawn
Permanent School Fund—
: Amount on hand Nov. 23. $17307-
0o; receipts $3981.9U: balance on
j hand $212SH 9<>.
; It will be noticed that two of
the above; the Road and Bridge
and Available School funds, are
overdrawn. While there is a bal-
ance of $164.90 credited to the
Jury fund there is really a large
deficit something near $2000.00
existing in warrents now register-
ed in the treasurer's office . It
was hoped that the receipts of the
court house fund this quarter just
ended would be sufiit ieut to tinish
paying off thi- debt and leave a
balance to the Jury fund, but this
not realized. There -till re-
mains a eourt house indebtedness

liquidated by this quarter - re-
ceipts. It is unfortunate that the
eounty - finances ure in -u< h a
-iiape that it- jury script cannot
be paid "ff at once at one hundred
cents on the dollar, instead of
having to be shaved ten per cent
by holders in order to get their
money. To the credit of the per-
manent school fund the county
holds in bouds drawing six
per cent interest and $13000 in
rive percent bond- all for long
periods with interest, mostly,
