a tllitlniiultheit Audience.
The ninth nnnuil contest between tha
riatonlan Society ami the Central Literary
Club of the high school took place Inst
evening nt tho high school auditorium.
The eent drew a crowded house.
While the result o the four contests wis
ft signal lctdry for the Central Literary
Club, there was much merit shown by
the defeated nsplranls, anil the unanimous
opinion of the gathering was well ex
pressed by Professor Buchanan nt the
close, when ho said that thero should be
eight medals, Instead of four, as oil had
won praise for the very excellent work
they had done. The remark was applauded.
In arranging the sealing of tho societies,
ins members of the I'latonlans were placed
en the left side of ihe house, and their
lecorntlons covered that portion of the
xi'illdlng. The columns of the hill were
te'toonctl with pink and green, while over
nn the other side of tho homo were the
colors of the Central Society, pink and
green. The icmbers and friends of the so
cieties came In a bodv and wore the colors

covered the umbrella that was triumphant

many efforts to drown each other out with
the rasping society jells.
The stage was very tastefully decorated
with palms and plints, arranged In a
seml-clrcle. behind which sit the high
school orchestra, which furnished the mu
sic for the occasion.
In opening the exercises of the evening
Professor Uuchnn in took occasion to re
mark that In this day and age of the
world It was very Important that the minds
of the bos and girls should be well em
ployed with wholesome matters, and that

all that was of value In education did not
tome front school work. For that reason,
lie said, literary societies were organized
ond such entertainments took place. It was
the ninth annual occasion of the contest,
nnd It was well to note the fupt that in tho
proceedings the cltUens would have an
opportunity to see some of the practical
results of the organization and some of the
bencilts that result from work and train
ing. It was also Justice, he stated, to have
the fact understood that in preparing for
this event the students had neglected no
school duty, and hid prepared for It with
out the aid of the teachers, as the socie
ties were Independent of tho schools- and
the influence of tho teachers.
Tho programme consisted of a competi
tive contest of four numbers, a debate, an
oration, an essay, and a declamation In
which each society was represented by Its
chosen champion. It was a contest of more
than ordinary Interest, and the victory
places tho winning society In the lead of
tho contests. Pormer events have been
well divided, but tho Centrnls are now in
the lead, and celebrated their victory lust

Et-Prosecutlng Attorney Marcy K.
Brown jestcrday niornlng Illcd with tho
county court a bill for four yens' sal
ary nt $1,000 per j car, which he s.vja he
now proposes to collect. Tho snlnry is
for his services as prosecuting; attorney
during his two terms of ofllco minus n
few payments that vvero made by tho
old county court before It nnd Mr.
Brown arrived nt n. difference of opin
ion as a result of which tho payments
vvero stopped.
There la a bit of the humorous In tho
history of Mr. Brown's claim and Its ups
nnd downs. It appears that tho laws
with regard to the remuneration to be
received by tho Jnckson county prose
cuting nttomey are somowhat ambig
uous and mled. Several dlftercnt leg
islatures since 1S21 have taken a hand
nt fifing up thefco laws and somo of
them have been slightly Int ns to re
pealing conflicting bectlons of previous
enactment. In 1S31, when Mnrcy K.
Brown assumed the olllce of prosecut
ing nttomey, he vvns governed or lim
ited by one law which said that ho
should not get over $10,000 of certain
classes of fees anil that he should be al
lowed one assistant at a salary to lie
fixed by thq county comt. Frank John
hon was lis nsslstnnt, and the county
court fixed the salary at $150 u month.
But Mr. Brown took consldetable Inter
est in the passage of a bill through the
legislature allowing him a second ns
slstnnt. The bill became n law and lie
appointed Mr. Thomas Mnstlu second
assistant. The county court took some
exceptions to paving $300 n month for
assistants, nnd Judges Ilenn, Murphy
and Hudson reduced the salary of as
sistants to $100 a month each. They
nlso decided that inasmuch as the spe
cial statute nllovvlng this prosecuting nt
tomey of Jack son county $10,000 fees was
In force Mr. Brown could not draw a
snlary tinder the general state law al
lowing prosecuting nttornejs of coun
ties of over 35,000 Inhabitants salaries of
$1,000 n year. Thero was almost open
wnr over the question between Prosecut
ing Attorney Brown and Judges Ilenn
ana Mutpuy.
This was In 1S91 and tho prosecuting
attorney was contemplating' further po
litical e-vploits, so ho quietly abided by
the ruling qf the county judges. But
yesterday morning he appeared before
the county court and filed a bill for the
vvholq four jears' salary. The bill neat
ly took Judgo Stone's breath away,
while Judges Smith nnd Litlmor looked
as if they navy trouble Impending. Lit
tle was said, however, but County Coun
selor Waters was called for and the
bill was shown him. llo hi turn called
for the statutes, nnd Mr. Brown quickly
took tho book nnd pointed significantly
toward section 030, chapter 13, nrtlclo 'J,
Revised Statutes of 1SSD. County Coun
selor Waters read It and took u pinch
of snuff nnd then read It ngan. He
finally told the coutt thut he would
take the matter In hand nnd look It up
and see how many more of thoso kind
of statutes there might bo still holding
on In the law libraries Mr. Brown re
marked ns ho left tho comt room that
ho meii'ly wanted what was duo htm.
County Counselor Waters will probn
hly tender an opinion within the next
few days, nnd it H altogether HHely
that there is litigation In store for the
county over the matter unless It shall
appear on tho face of It that tho old
county court vvns right In refusing to
