The go7erior has found,.s other

expense fund for the governo's %use.
Fot instance,the trips-which the gov
ernor makes as governor say to dhe
Jamestown Expasition, are paid-ior
out of his ow -pocket. 'Gov. Aniel is
pretty much of-a -philosopher and says
that he knew &ll of this wien he asL

therefore he is not objeciag on thi
account, but he thiiiks the sTiate shoukl

'onstitutiors provides that the
compensation of .aui official shall not
be increased during~ his term -and if
the governoff's recommendation should

without a dotibt., but if he prefers to

-thatS2t we.id cost them more -to wear
~the -honors of offiee than the salary
:and they couldd not afford, out of
consideration jo their faniilies -to ta~ke
. The 'fact is that the salaries of Al
the state officials are ridietuchsly low
in view of the -duties imposed and

were increased 'to $3,000. Chief Jus.
tiee Pope is the only member of the
court that has so far benefitted by
the is-erease, as he was re-eleeted since
the in-erease and the .thiers were elect

~The other state offeia4s~should be

In his last message to the general
asembly, submitted last January,
.just before he went out of office, Gor'
ernor Heyward called attention to
this matter of salaries and declared
that the justices of the supreme court
and the governor, particularly are
~underpaid. He urged that increases
be made but nothing was done. Gov
ernor Heyward. by the way, had op
posed the decrease in the state levy
in order that the state might be put
on a cash basis, but the legislature re
duced the levy from five and one-half
to fiv mills and as a consequence the
Witha reftTence to the new mansion,
Governor Ansel will recommend to
the reneral assembly that . a new

which is the highest. point in Colum
