THE ARGUS, SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 15, 190G.
GIVE AN INCREASE
Board cf Supervisors Raise Pay
of County Judge and
EACH IS ADVANCED $200
But Sheriff's Allowance for Livery
Hire and Boarding Prisoners Is
Given Big Cut.
At the session today of the supervis-
which concluded the present meet
ing, the board fixed the salaiits of the
officers for the coming terms. The sal
ary of the county judge aiu! county
clerk were each ineieased $20 a year,
the judge's being fixed at $2.20 and
the county clerk's at $2,000. The work
of the county officers has been greatly
increased by the increase in popula
tion. In order to even matters up. how
ever, the board reduced the livery hire
allowance of the sheriff from $730 to
$5i0 a year, and cut the sheriffs al
lowance for boarding prisoners from
40 cents a day for three meals tu 3k
cents. This makes the allowance in
Hock Island the lowest in the state, it
is said. In Davenport the allowance
is 50 cents a day. No other changes
were made in the salary list.
To VI Salary.
A resolution was passed favoring the
submission to a vote at the next elec
tion the proposition of placing the
state's attorney's office on a salary
basis instead of the present fee sys
tem, and instructing the county clerk
to prepare the proper petitions to be
signed by the voters in order that tire
proposition may be placed on the bal
To l ut OIT 'otN.
As was expected the resolution cut
ting off the fee and costs of the police
magistrates in Rock Island. Moline and
East Molfne in cases where prisoners
are tent to the county jail on charges
.of disorderly conduct, vagrancy. - dis
turbing the peace, and drunkenness
was Introduced. It was objected t;
and finally was laid over to the D
cember meeting. This action was iv
ferred to in The Argus recently. The
committee instructed to secure a re
port on such cases In the last year
made a verbal report, showing t'.ia
Hock Island had sent 24 J sucn prison
ers down in the sear just ended, with
costs of S571.05 for the magistrate
and a total cost of fee3 and boardin;
the prisoners for the 3.C27 days of the
sentences of $2.021.S5. Moline sen
lu-1 such prisoners to the jail, with
magistrates' costs of $2S0.7t. and
total cost including the board for the
1.790 lavs' sentence of $9S6.S0. The
argument is that the cities should tak
care of such offenders, and not turn
them over to the county. There are
a great many objections advanced to
this measure, which is advocated
merely as one of economy.
To Attend Convention.
Chairman W. R. Carey was author
ized to name two delegates, who wilh
himself and the county clerk, are t
attend the convent on of supervisors
and county clerks of the state at Wan
kegan in October.
Supervisor Battles endeavored again
to secure a reconsideration of t!u
granting of the petition to change the
interurban tracks east of Moline. but
failed. He tried to secure the passage
of a new rule that would permit a re
consideration on any day. but his mo
tion was lost.
