iff Clemmie vs. Appanoose county yes

Kendall, of this plaoe, are for the
plaintiff. E. M. Probasco and Attor
ney Howell represent Appanoose
county. Nearly forty witnesses are

iffs from adjoining counties. The
controversy arises from the fact that
the supervisors of Appanoose county
refuse to allow Sheriff Clemmie fifty
cents per day for the keeping of pris
oners lodged in the jail. Plaintiff
claims that the supervisors never not
ified him of any change in the rate to
be allowed, until his claim was reject
ed at the April, 1900 session, the board
having at the preceding January ses
sion reduced the per diem from fifty
cents to thirty-five cents for each
prisoner. The amount in controversy
is about $700 and much interest is
