VOTE TO PLACE
LIMIT ON PAY
Supervisors Allow Board of Re
view Members $3.50 a Day,
up to $.100 Total.
MEANS 29 DAYS WORK
If Sessions linn Over (hat Number,
Nothing Will 15c Paid for the
Kxtia Time I'nt in.
Ab a result of action taken yester
day by the board of supervisors, the
county board of review must finish
its work in less than 29 days this
year, or the members of the board
must work for nothing for the lime
over that number of days. A motion
made by Supervisor Gould was
adopted fixing the pay of the mem
bers of the board of review at $3.50
a day, not to exceed $100 for each
member.jbr $300 for the whole board
for the year. In the past the board
has found it necer.sary to be in ses
sion considerably over 3 0 days, and
,this year the supervisors have refer
red to the board the work of inves
tigates the taxes of the capital stock
of corporations, so that it seems like
ly that if the board of review does
its work properly the members will
receive somewhat less than $3.50 for
the time actually put in. The board
will begin its work about the first of
C'niiiaiKn on IrOoxitin.
The supervisors decided to make
something of a campaign for the
special tax proposition, instructing
the finance committee to use all le
gitimate means to place the matter
properly before the voters. The com
mittee's formal order to place the
question on the ballot at the judic
ial election, Juno 7, was adopted.
Harry M. McCaskrin. in addressing
the board relative to the taxation of
tne capital stock of corporations, a
subject introduced by Supervisor
Matthews in his resolution yesterday
morning, spoke somewhat of the
special tax question and on the whole
favored the measure. The question
this year is submitted in a different
form than heretofore, providing for a
levy of 50 cents on the $Hnt for a
term of., six, years. The proposition
is submitted with the understanding
that; the supervisor shall .apply half
of .this tax .fund if it is voted, to the
pajjuen.t.of - tlie county's floating
debt, and.thft ot,her hall", to the cur-
rent..e.xpnss5,cT ,the tounty. It i:
estimated.. .that if, i the , tax ia voted
the revenue thus derived will, if
properly applied, pay off th" county
debt of $135,000 in the six years.
