As to Pay of Witnesses in the Skipper
In the Skipper case, which was
trar.sferred for trial from this
county to the county of Fairfield,
where the trial was had last
month, the court costs for the
per diem of jurors, bailiffs, the
dieting of jurors, ect., amounting
to $148.50, were paid by Fairfield
county and bill of same itemized,
and certified to by the clerk of
court of Fairfield county as pre- I
scribed by law was presented to
our county treasurer who prompt
ly and properly sent a check
for the amount. In the case
of the witnesses, however, both
for the state and the defense, and
there were more than a hundred,
the certificate of the clerk of court
of Fairfield names no amount to
be paid them but simply gives a
list of them with the number of
days prsent and the number of
miles traveled. Upon receipt of
this statement the clerk of court
here issued pay bills to each
witness at the per diem allowed
in Lancaster county (which, by
the way, is just double the per
diem allowed in Fairfield or any
other, except perhaps one other
county, in the, state) but the
judge, before whom the case was
tried, has not and refuses to cer
tify to the materiality of the
witnesses, and consequently the
witnesses havu not yet been paid,
the county treasurer holding that
he is not authorized to pay a
witness pay cortificate unless it is
signed by the trial judge and
countersigned by the clerk of
court. County Treasurer Cau
then has referred the matter to
the Comptroller General to know
if it is necessaay that the judge
should sign these certificates be
fore he has the right to pay them
and get credit for 'them in his
In the meantime the witnesses
in the.Skipper case need feel no
uneasiness. They will get their
nay. In our opinion, Fairfield
county should have paid them
just as she paid the jurors, bailiffs
and other expenses for the trial
and then her clerk of court should
have certified to the costs and
have collected it from Lancaster
county just as he did the other
costs. But she has not done so.
Peshaps the law does not require
it. The law on this point needs
to be interpreted, but, were it
clear, it is doubtful whether our
sister county would have assumed
the responsibility of paying these
witnesses their per diem under
the law ralating to Lancater coun
ty, which law is thought by many
to be unconstitutional-in direct
conflict with a provision of the
constitution of 1895 which pro-'
vides that no special law shall be
enacted where a general law can
The county treasurer is unques
tionably right in refusing to pay
these. witness certificates unless
presented properly authenticat
ed. He is a bonded officer and
the people should appreciate his
wish to follow the law in the pay
ment of all claims against the
county. At the same time he, no
doubt as much as anyone else,
regrets the delay, perhaps in
convenience occasioned witnesses
in not getting their pay.-Lan
Dangers of Pneumonia.
A cold at this time if neglected is
liable to cause pneumonia which is so
often fatal, and even when the patient
has recovered the lungs are weakened,
making them peculiarly susceptible to
the devlopment of consumption. Fo

cough, heal and strengthen the lungs
and prevent pneumonia. La grippe
coughs yield quickly to the wonderful
curative qualities of Foley's Honey
