AN IMPORTANT DECISION.
Judge Eplor, at the session of his
court held at Carrollton, n few days
since, in a case which camo before his
court, rendered a decision ot great im
portance to all sheriffs in tbo stato in
counties not under township organiza
tion. Tho judge holds that all sheriffs
in this state are simply cx-officio col
lectors ; that the offico of county col
lector is ehnply an ex-ofiicio office, of
which tho sheriffs aro buoU ox-offioio
officers, by tho law that the offico of
county collector is not a distinct office,
but an ex-oflicio offico, as aforesaid.
The judgo further decided that the old
county courts of Illinois, which went
out of offico last fall, wcro county boards
within the meaning of tho tenth sec
tion of article 10 of tho new constitu
tion of this state, and, as such "had
the power to fix tho salary of tho de
fendant, Andrews, ns sheriff of. the
county ; that said county board, hav
ing fixed tho defendant's annual salary
as sheriff at $2,000, that tho sheriff
must acoount for his fees received by
him as sheriff, and also as cx-ofiioio
collector; and if hi consolidated fees
from his office as sheriff, as well as his
ox-oflicio offico of collector, exceeded
tbo sum of $2,000, it was tho duty of
tho defendant to pay aver lo tho county
treasurer tho said oxcoss. 'This
deoision affects about thirty counties
in this state, and seems to have been
tho first decision rendered under the
law by auy court in this state. It ac
cords with tbo opinion of the attorney
THK LITTLE POLITICIAN AND
THE LITTLE EDITOR.
Tho Pulaski Patriot dooies that it
was bribed "to support Mr. Clements."
It did receive money from Mr Clem
ents for 'notices" before tho nomina
tion of that gentleman, but this tho
Patriot doei not believe wos improper
conduct on Its part.
Well, neither do 'we ; but somehow
the belief has obtained among politl-
clans that tho newspapers hliould "puff'
them for the benefit of Iho couutry.
For instance, Judgo Smootlimannors
determines that the country ticuds his
services in congress ; or Hon. Mr. Tube
itall that he is needed ia iho Ocucr.il
Atscmbly by a struggling and down
trodden pcoplo ; or John Doe, Eq.,
that the interests of nil litigants de
mand his presoncc ou tho batich. The
editor is instantly approached and re
quested to say n "good word" for llio
patriotic aspirant for office. If tlio
editor refuses, ho is atonco denounced
as an editor who is bringing strifo into
the party ; if lie complios, tho manner
of hia compliance is critieieod with
great freedom nnd tho wiee men ol tho
party conclude thnt they will find an
editor who is nn abler man and can do
the party morn and better service, lu
the mcantinio, tho editor of courao.wo
havo reference to the little editors, or
rather the editors of struggling news
papers is laboring to keep want from
his door, or at best to f,ct together
enough money to pay the constantly
accruing debts that are always nnnoy
inc mm. VI courso tlio judge, owes
him cvrca him for tho vapor. Tho
Judge is n subscriber: owen him iur
joh printing, ami oitm Itira'for adver
tising ; and of courso tho honorable
gentleman owes him ; and of couro
tho nt-plring Esquiro owes him. Wo
ncod uot say thoy will not paj that
is, we need not say this to tho little
editors of whom wo have been one
for several years. Tho politicians in
debted to a "little editor," who is at
once proprietor, bookseller, job printer,
compositor nnd wrilor, always bscomo
insulted wheu they aro asked to pay their
printer's bills, and tho little editor is
rebuffed, llo goes back to his office
to labor for the politicians and to en
duio their abuse.
This is no1, nn ovordrawn picture. I
is understood ; for it is a fact, that th
politicians rob instead of support tho
little editors. If, therefore, Mr. Corson
rovcrsiDg tho rule, lias been making tho
little politicians ot his party "coine
down" to tho little editors, we fhall
not upbraid him. Wo havo never suc
ceeded iu obtaining from tho politi
cians of tho Democratic party pay for
their advertising or job printing even,
and we know how burdensoino is tho
load the littlo editors arc compelled to
bear. Wo have mado a trumpet of
Tun Uui-leti.v to herald tho praises
of many a man who to-day is repaying
us with abuse ; and wo aro therefore
Klad to notico that Mr. Coraon is mak
ing tho dead beats on his side pay "cash
on tho nail."
