THEY WANT MORE PAY.
.lutlges and Clerks of Election Accept
Compensation Under Protest.
The judges and clerks of the No
vember election are accepting their
pay for their services on the election
boards as allowed by the board of
county commissioners, but not without
protests as the commissioners have
held that the fact that there were
amendments voted on should not in
crease their pay. Two of the judges
have accepted their fees under protest
and threaten to bring actions to col
lect the balance which they claim is
due because the amendments were
not counted as votes.
Under the statute covering the sub
ject the judges and clerks at election
are to be paid $2.50 for serving wheth
er there Is one vote cast at the precinct
or 200. If there should be more than
200 votes cast their pay is increased
an extra dollar, making their compen
sation $3.50 for their day's labor. The
judge who certifies the ballots to the
county clerk receives an extra dollar
for this work.
In but one of the county precincts,
Rossville, did the number of votes
cast exceed the minimum for which
the charge of 12.50 is made though in
the city there were a number of pre
cincts where the number of votes cast
