?. Representative G. i'. smith lias a
bill to put the Clerk's ohioe in this
county on a salary footing and the
criminal matters of the Sheriff's of
fice upon a salary. In the meanwhile
there is a loll pending to put all county
officials in the state upon salaries, re
ferred to a committee of one from each
county, Lau re 08 being represented by
Mr. Smith. It proposes $1,800 as salary
for Clerk in lieu of all fees and costs,
which he must collect for the State.?
There is already a statute giving to
the Clerk (450 00 on the criminal side
which goes into effect next January.?
Of course this is repealed by the pro
- ..posed Act. The Sheriff Is to have a
salary of $1,600 In lieu of fees for
criminal business, ?_'(! cents a day for
dieting prisoners, and fees in civil
business, should the Act pass it could
not afTcct the present incumbents dur- I
