But, when the 'power' ol the boird to p:im

i brought in question, then the true con
struction to be placed upon the weaning of
the word 'compensation' as ubed in eaid
loth Sec. Racemes ol vital importance.
If the true construction is us tirst above
ituted, then It Lot only follows tint the
proviso "that the 'comiien-ation' ol no
ollicer shall be increased or diminished
during his term ot oilier." proUihits the
'hoard' from 'increasing' the amounts
ti a in ed in mid order by nnkimr a further
allowance for clerk hire or other expense;
but It ulo follows that the order itself as
originally parsed la void in so far as it al
lows 'anytMng' on arcouut of services or
'expenses' beyond 15oO; torths language
ol the cunttttution, "They (the hoar. I) i-lml
not allow either of them (the sherill, etc)
more per annum than MK.I," is obligatory
aud imperative, and renders void tlie ac
tion of the board in allowing the ?'.i) and
ilW inexi etbof thel5K) Jixcd by the con

the 'compensation' a-tixed by tho bond)
do not eil'eetthe iUeslion of 'expenses' of
the otlice; and, not only is md original
order valid: but it is within the
power ot the board, in tho exerci.o ol a
sound discretion, to increase tlie amounts
heretofore allowed or Died for 'necessary1
expenfes, by fixing a further sum lor
'clerk hire,' provided it was necessary.
Vt'c are disposed to adopt the 'latter' con
struction, as the more reasonable, ju-t and
correct one i: best accords, in oiiropinion,
witb the context and the established rules
lor coiUitruiDg statutes, We think that by
the word 'couipeiftVation' the legislature
simply intended the amount to be allowed
for the ollicers 'services' the salary, as it
were, he should receive for each and every
year's 'service' during hi; term ot olUee;
that this amount should be fixed und as
certained in advance: -hou'd be paid only
out ot fees be collected; should not 'ex
ceed' '13'X) per annum and should not be
increased or dcniimi-hed during; his term of

these were matters subject ta fluctuation
and change and liable to be increased or

the boanl had ;. ie-i or were willing to al

an allowance or 'additlnnal' allowance lor
necessary expenses' did not arise. The
board had lixed the olllcer's 'compensation'
at '700 per annum with a proviso: "J'io-
vided that lie furulshed his own incl, sta
tionery and clerk biro," The point was
made hy the ollicer that, by the order, the
board had 'not' "lixed''lils"compensstion"
with nia 'necessary clerk litre, stationery,
fuel and other expenses:' beciuse Iho or
der did not lix a specific' sum for 'salary'
and a specihc.' sum lor the expenses ol
the olllce;' and, that, tlie board having tailed
to 'fix,' etc, he (the officer) could retain
statutory fees and commissions; and the
point decided was that although in and by
the order no defiuate sum was speciiied as
for 'salary' (a word not used In the law) or
as for 'expenses;' yet his 'entire compensa
tion,' the whole compensation, includlmr
stationery, lucl and clerk hlro' was Mixed'
by the order -limited to $700 "for every
thing' and the order was llierefnra u
sufficient compliance with the law, anil the
'sberin' could not legally claim anything
beyond what the board had allowed him.
While wo arc not aware that the court
has ever passed upon tho question now un
