REDUCING THEIR PAY.

Interviews with Varloa People Bi-Ibx
Oat General Opiaioo Concerning
the Preposed A etlon.
The members rf the Farmers' Mutual
Benefit association and the Farmers' AK
liance have sent to the hoard of mi mr.
visors a numerously signed petition re-
questing that bod to reduce the salaries
of count; officers, as well as that of the
steward of the poor farm, to $1,200 a
year, and in tbe case of the sheriff that
the present amount allowed fifty cents
for tbe daily bo ird of each prisoner be
reduced to thirty cents. With regard to
this move numerous persons have been
asked their opinion by an Aroos repre
sentative, and the feeling would seem to
be generally uniform that a reduction is
neither just nor d sirable.
In respect to tho county judge, it is
argued that in th first place the man
ought to be a lawyer, on account of the
legal matters that it all times come before
that official. It is a potation reauirine a
I pwuliir knowledge, and one that even a
successful practicing attorney sometimes
knows very Huh- about. The interests
committed to tbe care of this tribunal
the county court one not only varied
and intricate, but of the most important
character. It is t iere the worldly effects
of the widow and the orphan are looked
after and cared for; it is there the insane
are protected, and it is there a large por
tion of tbe genera! business ot the coun
ty is transacted. It requires a man with
a clear head, a humane heart and an
ennilfihli ftiannattinn Tha .,1... nn
r . u
iu an reason, is sniaii enougn, ana to re-
duce it to the sum named, would not only

auncuii to properly Hint. For while
there may be a number of persons who
win woric lor ana accept any
office at any pay it. does not follow that
me most tit and proper person can always
oe securea. l.iKe all judicial positions, it
is one oi uignuj t.nn one requiring men-
tai ana legal training.
ine omce of shewn is the most impor
tant in the county, all things considered.
He is its chief executive, and, in fact, its
only one, as all matters of that nature are
performed by anc! through him and in bis
name. All the writs issued in the countv
are served by him. The county buildings
are in his charge. The jailer is under his
control and the under sheriff and deputies
are by him chosen, and be is held ac
countable for their various acts. The
prisoners are care J for under his direct
tion. . He supplier them with food and is
responsible for it? quality. His bond is
large, and taken altogether it will be
seen that tbe placa is one that cannot well
be filled by everyone who might desire the
I office. Honesty, integrity, executive,
ability, a fearless disposition, a knowl
edge of tbe county and those who live in
it, are some of the qualifications neces
sary for this position. That this officer is
not by any means over-paid is conceded
by everyone who was spoken to on the
subject. The pn sent price of flour and
other materials for the feeding of tbe
prisoners would demand that tbe present
rate be continued.
The treasurer, too, gives a bond of im
mense proportions. He holds the coun
ty s purse and is the county s paymaster
and his position should at least place him
bevond the poer of temptation. A.
position that reqaire9 hundreds of thou3'
amis of dollars in a bond is certainly one
of some value aid trust, and to reduce
I the emolument to that of an ordinary
clerk neither look a just nor reasonable and
is not is keeping with tbe trust reposed
The labor of the nflice is 'of a particular
kind and method and clearness are both
Of the other o aires it is not necessary
to speak at present. Tbe argument of
fered is that the farmers do not take a
proper view of the situation. That they
are too apt to judge of tbe salary of an
official by the pay allowed a workman on
the farm, not liking into consideration
other essential niatters in connection. It
is said, too, thai, while tbe county is in
debt, it is not through the excessive sal
aries paid the county officials, as all the
offices are more than self-sustaining and
havo been ever nince the fee system was
dropped under tffi operation of tbe new
constitution. It is hinted also that tuc
supervisors therieelves should begin the
matter of retretchment by reducing the
number of their members. That instead
of twenty-four county representatives in
that bodv. half s. dozen or less would an
swer the piupos i equally well, if not bet
ter. That the body is too unwieldy at
nresent and thit no good purpose is
served by having it so large.
The above are some of the ideas ex
pressed by diff-rent persons when ap
proached upon tiie subject of reduction of
salaries. Tbe matter will he luiiy ais
cussed, no doubt .when tbe petition comes

that tin; strike will Ife ilecl ured off to day.
There is much feeling ainotit; tloTm.-n be

of the knights are anxious to be reinstated.

While in custody in this city Cordial
was confined in a room near hupenn-

Wlieu Cordial reached the Troy jail, be
fore he was put iu a cell, he remarked to
some of the newspaper men there that he
did not propose to shoulder the responsi
bility tor tbe crime of which he ts sus

though," he added emphatic. ly, "be

officials all he knows about the train-
