COM JECr.IT'AT'I3D. T. G. CoirpTon. N sp., tdi'r f a;ap desia r;crz~t : fSlmL-Those who know tre, are well a^ware of the fact, that I have always been opposed to resorting to to any other means of redressing public greivances, excepting through the ballot-box or thelegal tribunals, and that I have on all occasions, un inflnenced either by fear or personal predeiictions denounced public offi cials, who have abused the trusts confided to them to grati fy their personal uialignity or to plunder tile people. I have also ex pressed the opinion, that it is the duty of all good citizens, (at this time more particularly when pecula tion, corruption, an. imbecility are the prominent characteristics of the acts and capacity of the majority of our iulers.) to expose every attempt of those in authority to plunder the people which way be prevented by a resort to the Courts. Influenced from this motive alone. I write this ecrnmunication, and atk its inset tinu in your paper. Ini the absence of the Parish At torney, you s'r, in your ca rscity of Pesidentof the Police Ju .y, requeste I ine on yesterday, t; give tl .Jury 1y11 legal opinioin, as to the right of the Sheriff and ('lerk of the ('Colrt, to denand fronm the Pari- h the payment of their ac counts, for fees in Criminal prose cutions, which request I readily as sented to. andl copnldYed with, by readi:rº the TA:wv regulating the fees of SherrfT, Clerks and other public cfhicers. as e:in,.didl in the Revised Statuntes of 170, from pages 14C to 153, this is the latest law regtlatilng the fees of those officers, for -i.l ser vices rendered by them in Crimiunal, as well as civil suits, and expressly repeals all previous laws the upon sujbect matter. Sections 765 and 766 of this law specially provides what amount shall be paid to the Sheriff for his services in Criminal matters, and that is to be paid by the State, not by;the parish. There is an act of 1870. which allows a few other items to the Sheriff, but the Parishes are not required to pay these fees. This law also emblodies a fee bill for the Clerks of Court, (page 1510) in Crim inal cases, but the last section of chapter 761 emphatically declares that the foregoing lees (the Clerk's) shall not be paid by the State or" Par ish, but be collected from the parties prosecnted.I em phatically' declared to the Jury that there was r,o law in existance making the Parishes -e: sponsible for the fees of Clerk's and Sheriff' in Criminal matters, and no other law in force prescribing and regulating the fees of these officers, excepting the act read to them and the act of 1870, which had prefer ence over the fee bill in the Revi sed Statutes, in the particular wherein the two acts did not agree, and that every dollar which had or should be appropriated by the Police Jury, in pay",eunt of the ,ees claimed by tho~o ofticers for servi ces in Criminal matters, was an act of public plunder, and that the offi cers of this Parish had been fully aware for several years, that they had no right to receive the money of tle people !or such services, be cause I had frequently discussed that question with them, and I had called the attention of the Police Juries of the Parish, since 1868 to the law upon this subject, and de nounced publicly the payments made of these thes, as a robbery 1upon the people, but omy effdrts to correot this abuse had failed-be cause the Ring interested in this plnnd(lering of the people, was too powerful to be overcome by one nIan. The rec'ords will prove that in the last five years, over Ten Thousaid Dollar, have been appropriated by the Police Juries, and paid by taxa tion upor our impoverished people, under the pretext of enforcement of our C'riminal laws, not one dollar Qf which amonnt was chargeable upon the Parish. The aggregate expen ses incidental to the enforcement of our Criminal laws durinlg the period s;tated are nearly doubh the above amnaunt, and for those expen ses fr which: the l arish is properly charirealde, tihe amounts paid to the oficers are double the sent they are entitled to cliargt. The la;rst section of the act of 1770, iprovides "If any oflicer shall demad or collect any otllhr or greater fees than are par tu:Larly herein sect forth, ihe shall be co'iider(d gilty (th a misde me:mor in office, and punishablle by tinE anid dismissed from oflice." And section 762 declares, "the Sheriff's throrughout the State, shall be en titled to demand the following fees of office and no' more." Now:l as sert positively, that this law does not contain any fee bill for the Sheriff, excepting a few unimpor tant items, and the Parishes are nbot made responsible for one dollar etx eel) ing the maintainance ot prisao. ners in Jail. It is a well known fact, that the Sheriff's throughout the State have brought all of their influence to bear upon the Legisla ture for several years past, to amend their tee bills, authorizing a charge for services in Criminal mat ters, without success. The Legis lature thinking wisely, that those who occupy such lucrative oflices can well afford to erve the Btate in . .milu prosecutions, gratitiouu ly, as all other public otllters, are required to lprf ,ru nEus r publc duties, without c:l:nhtseati'o:t . But! to satisfy the cl :iis of thv-se oflcere J1 the Legisl:ttt e 'idi am:,-x'l their fee 't bi'l in civ1 miat::rts, anid imnreased their fees in civil cases, about one hundred per cent. In no country on earth are the Sheriffs paid such enormous and onerous fees as they are in Louisiana. They should be content with the exactiont. they are permitted make upon the unfortu-ta nate litisant wiho is forced itrto our I Courts to vindlicato his rights, and I not attempt to suborn the Police J ury, to tax the impoverished peo ple of the country, two or three thousand dollars each year for fees in Criminal cases, which the law ex pressly denies to them. It is not , astonishing to hear the opinion con- t stan*ly expressed, that nine-tenths ot the arrests on charges of violat ing the Criminal laws, "are put up i jobs," the more especally when wa never hear of one out of fifty of: these, after the ireliminrty exam- t nation, which have been worth on f the average about: fifty dollars to t the Sheriff an' Clerk--in each ease I heretofore, and will be in future, t unless the people resist any tll ther Iaymients on this account. I do not hesitate itn asserting, that nxo re s,;pe-tatble Attorney in the State can be anutl wioe wil: uL,t co..uenr in my opinion of the law relative to these fees. But as you are aware, not withstaunding this expose of the law in this case, and the emphatic de elaration I made to the Jury, "that every inember of it., who voted to allow these tee bills, as a charge unon the Parish conmmitted perjury," these bills 'were passed and ordered paid by three out of the four mem bers present, you being the only op posing member. It is titn3 for the people to come for ward and adopt decisive measu res for their proteo tion, as it is certain that more ex tensive robberies are contemplated by the "ring" who have absolute control or the present Police Jury. We all know that the ridiculous and illegal order to the Tax Collector, to' reject the warrants issued in 1872, offered in payment of Parish Taxes, was passed at the instance and in the interest of this same "ring," who have been' holding up the Parish paper heretofore issued, and which they have obtained, for illegal fees, or purchased at a heavy discount and expect by this meas ure, to force up to par, or collect in currency. This order was issued in the shape of a resolutions offered by E. J. Barrett, at the meeting in the early part of October, 1872, which reads as follows : Resolved, That no Certificate of IndebtedneMsl issued by the Parish of Rapides, from and after this date shall be receivable for any Parish Taxes or dues of said Parish, ex S-', t such as may become due after Uti Et:itc of said Certificate. Now Mr. Editor, as a farther evi deuce that this iniquitous and un derhand proceeding was instigated and is still kept up) by the "ring" alluded to, I will relate a circumstan. ce which took place only a day or two ago, to which you are cogni zant, in your oicial capacity. I knew you were opposed to the reso lution quoted above, and would en deavor to" have it repealed, and as 1 knew you were powerless by your. selt, I tried to find some ineinmbr, who act ith you, and did fintd one who stated to mue positively that he would make a motion to that elf'ect, He told you the same thing late one evening, and promised to take action next morncing, arid' when morning catle be had changed his mindl, so that when you yourself va cating tle chair, made the motion it did not get a second, and ofcourse fai'cd. Now what caused the gen tleman to so suddenly change his baset cogent reasons no doubt which will never be given to the public, but can readily be guessed at. The remedy I propose is, that some h:df" dozen or more tax pay ers unite in taking out an injunc tion, restraining and prohibiting the Tax Collector and the Parish Treasurer, fromp receiving or recng nrizing the (Certilicates of Indebted ness issued to the Sheriff and Olerk for their lpreteiied fees in Crimi nal prosecutioln. I presume the members of this bar will serve the people gratuiously in the suit. Let us seek pmrotection flom the Courts first, it we fail to obtain justice from our Courts, we have one other remedy, which I will be one of the first to advocate and assist in en forcing. R. A.
