J, he prevnllli) opinion of the meeting
being tlmt the uounty agent Ih un uti
necessrtry expense unfairly established,
I'hc sfcoud resolution brought out
the greatest variety of opinion on
both Hides of the question. A motion

decisive vote. Hut a motion to ttdopt
the resolution wmh restated by a mi
nority of about one. fourth of the meet
Ull This was the only resolution
perceptibly opposed In the voting.

highway commission was dlsonsced at
some length relative to, how thu nfiice
was created, the ofllcer appointed and
paid, It was developed in the discus-..
Ion that the highway commUsiouer is
a part of the dolUr matching bchutue
with the government and that the
commissioner is paid $1200 pjr year,
$400 by tho state and 5900 by the
county. When the vote wae taken tho
highway commissioner was abolished
by nearly ununiinons voto.
