VOTE TO PLACE
LIMIT ON PAY
Supervisors Allow Board of Re
view Members $3.50 a Day,
up to $1100 Total.
MEANS 29 DAYS WORK
If Sessions Hun Over, that Number,
Nothing Will lie Paid for the
lAtia Time Put in.
As 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.jpr $3 00 for the whole board
for the year. In the past the board
has .found it necessary to be in ses
sion considerably over 3 0 days, and
hls yearthe supervisors have refer
red to the board the work of inves
tigating 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'niiiiiulgn on I'ropOMition.
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. June 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 cm 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 t lie $100 for a
term f.iSix, years. The proposition
irs submitted with the. understanding
thatjhe supervisor shall apply half
of .thLMax ,fund if it is voted, to the
pajiuen.tpf .the county's floating
debt,, and.hq ot,her hall', tq the cur
re, .expends. ,cf ,the, jcounty, It is
estimated.. .that i. tbe , tas is voted,
the revenue thu3 derived will, if
properly applied, pay off the county
debt of $135,0ji in the six years.

Supervisor Eastman offered a res
olution designed to forestall the sher
iff in'the matter or excessive bills for
feeding prisoners at the county jail,
but the resolution was tabled by a
vote of IS to 10. The resolution
provided that the purchase of sup
plies and the employment of cooks
in the name of the county was not
authorized, and the board would not
he responsible for lills so contracted,
but would refuse to allow them.
