JURY SAYS SHEEHAN MAY RETAIN HIS FEES Decides That He Need Not Re fund $100,000 to City Treasury Suit to compel Iteglster of Wills .lames H. Sheehan to pay Into the Cty Treasury $100,000 which ho collected In fceB was decided In favor of Sheehan today by a jury In Common Pleas Court pTo, I beforo Judge Audenrled. The, County Commissioners wero tho plaintiff's. It Is expected that tho case will bo appealed again to the Supremo Court. Tha coptrovetsy oer tho fees of this oflice has been running for more than two ears. Tho fee system of tho ptllce'was abolished by an act of Assembly of July, 1913. The action filso raised tho salary of Registers In counties of l.r.OO.OnO population and Up ward. President Judge Audenrled before whom suit was first brought, declared this act unconstitutional, being both special and local legislation. Tho Judge said ho gave this opinion grudgingly and said that tho County Commissioners were tlw proper parties to lllo suit for recovery of the iom tulsstous. Alexander Simpson, Jr., counsel for the, Commissioners, argued to tho Jury that Mr. Sheehan could not claim tho act of 1 91 ." to be unconstitutional and at the same, time take the JtO.OOO salary It pro vides. If the act was unconstltutlona', ho said, tho defendant had no right to the, In crease In salary, although ho might havo a right to keep tho old fees. Ho said Mr. Sheehan reminded him of thn boy In tho bakery shop who wauled both the. penny and the cake. Mr. Simpson contended that the proofs showed that tho acceptance by Sheehan of the Increased salary was also a willingness to take the provisions of the new l,iw, and amounted to u waiver of h'ls right tu the fees undar the old law, and barred him from questioning Iho legality of tho net of 1913. On the, other hand, Shecli.ui maintained that he only took thn larger salary when tho agreement was made tlmt hn should put the commissions aside, on deposit, but that In tha event of tho act of ims being de clared unconstitutional, ho should not for feit his rights to refund thn salary above $5000 per year and obtain the. fees. Trie status of this arrangement was left for the jury to decide. After a brief deliberation tho Jury an nounced a, crdlct In favor of tho defendant, upholding his position In the case. In the event nf an appeal It Is believed that tho higher court will pass upon thn net of 1013, which Judgo Audenrled ruled was unconstitutional.
