Mratora Hup-.

Ha re viewed the situation of the office holders durliiK the pant thrte years, when they received no salaries and had tO mortgage their cpci tut urn i f eaiarlea, tealdei pay lug their lepu- tles, and said that unless a salary loll Mas passed at tins session the COUaty officials would be technically embezzlers if they took the pittance that tin county commissioners might allow them. He called attention to tin' fact that the salaries under this bill would iive the officials an Income only 40 or SO per cent of what It was under the fee system, and said thai by passim; this bill the republicans bad lessened the burden of the tax payers from TU to 60 Bar cent. "Nine tenths of the taxpayers who com plain.' be said, "are those wno pay little or no taxes." He Insisted that the ulTicc-holtlers too had a right to expect pay for their time and ser vices.
