DEPUTY CLERKTO LOCAL REGOHDER BUI Provides Position For John Blatter An uulque situation was brought about when the county officers were placed on the salary system, as no waiver of the court and recorder s court fees was -provided, and ' ac cordingly Geuqral J. S.

If the proposed amendment is intro duced it will allow Recorder R.. H. Sykes a salary of $1,500, being an iu crease of 3300 a year.

Walker Jr. is hereby appointed deputy clerk of said court." That line six. section six of said chapter be amended by striking out the words "forty dol lars" and inserting in lieu thereof: "in the discretion of the board of county commissioners and board of' aldermen of the city of Durham, and until the next meeting of tbe two boards In joint session said salary shall be not less than one hundred dollars." . . Section 2. All laws and parts of laws in conflict with this act are hereby repealed. Section 3. This act shall be in force and effect from and after its ratification.
