Bitte.Juno 21. ^ Owing to another^n^ ccssarj absence of the county attorney,^the county commissioner!! were this mora^^ine; again deprived of hi^ valuable advice^willed they had been promised and which^they needed on several important matter*.^H^- had lieen ordered to be in attendance^but sent word with the auditor that he was^net ready to report. The commissioners^^ ere utterly disgusted and in their di-^lenMM they sent for Judge McHattou and^asked him what power the board had to^compel the county attorney to attend to^his duty. Doyou ask me as your attorney or as^judge of ihe district court,^ usked Mr. Mr-^li.it ton with a smile. ^If as nn attorney,^the rule is to put up a retainer llrst. ChairmanMeQuecney replied that his^opinion was asked as a judge and county^officer, and if he would not give it in that^capacity, then they were willing to pay^liim as an attorney, but 1 lie judge said that^under tho peculiar circumstances sur^^rounding his position os a district judge ho^could give no opinion outside of court and^not unless the matter was brought l^cfore^him in the form of some legal proceedings.^Mil h as a suit or application. He assured^the commissioners that they bad his pro^^found sympathy but he could give them no^more. ^1 feel for you,^ he said, ^but I can^lint reach you. Theboard thon decided to go to some^out.-ide attorney for advice, cost what it^uill, but tbey did such things before and^the county attorney afterwards came in^ami told the board that it had no right to^do it without consulting him and that tho^bill incurred was illegal. Woare simply up the stump.^ said^Chairman McQuccncy, ^and must dance^to Baldwin's fiddle. Severalprominent attorneys who have^been consulted in regard to tho matter^have declared to the commissioners that^the county attorney is absolutely supreme^in bis office, and that no body, commis^^sioners or judges, have any jurisdiction^ever him. The law gives him absolute^power, and while there is u law to regulate^every other officer in the state there is^none that can reach a county attorney^who does not freely choose to do his duty.^The commissioners concluded that they^were powerless in the matter, anil decided^to employ outside legal advice necessary^to transact their business. They were^urged to stop tho attorney's salary, but^they did not think they had the power to^do so. Thecommissioners were at work to-day^on the treasurer's books.
