This is a mistake. Criminal exnenses are
paid out of a State fund. This is, of
course, raised by taxation in all the coun?
ties,, and none of it can come back and
he spent or disbursid in a county except
through the criminal trials that take
placo in her courts. For example, Shen?
andoali is taxe?! a certain amount towards
?ictraying the criminal expenses of the
whole Slate, and she can not have a dol?
lar of that money back, or expended
within the county except for criminal
trials. Consequently the trials ot Myers,
Anthony and Weed have brought hack to
the county a largo amount of money that
would not have gotten back in any other
way. Therefore let our people possess
