SUPREME C0l)RT SALARIES. Tho Justices' Saluilc.H Too .Small for tlio IliKiilty of Their l'onttlnn... Washington special to tho St. Louis Uepuhlie: The Chief Justico of tho Supremo Court of tho United States receives $10,500 per annum. Tho eight ussoclato Justices recclvo 810,000 each.

If Associate Justico Field was not Indepen dent of his sahuy, It Is said, ho could not actually afford to hold tho position. The ex pense of crossing and recrosslug tho Continent with his family, and tho cost of travcllug ou his Paclllc Coast circuit reduces bis salary moro than one-half every j eir.

It is 0110 of the anomalcs of Congiesslonal legislation that tho Clcik of tho Supremo Court annually makes fully twlco tho amount of any member of tho court.
