bill for the reduction of the

passed but many n seful
changes might be effected tir t

these fees but also of equaliz

now the work is not fairly paid

very apparent now that the
compensation of sheriffs and
county judges can not with
equity be reduced The sheiiffs
especially earn every cent the

do not make
