FEES OF THE
MATTER WAS BEFORE COURT
Judge Archbald Requested That tho
Question of i Whether or Not the
New County Officials Shall Re
ceive Fees or Salary Re Argued In
Detnil Beforo the Full Bench This
Will Be Done Saturday or Monday.
Trespass Caso Heard Before Arbi
tratorsOther Court Matters.
Before Judge R. W, Archbald yester
day the test case In tho matter of the
compensation of the new county of
ficials came up for cur.rlderatlon In
the form of the case of Uistrlct At
torney W. R. Lewis asrat'Ht tho county
to collect certain fees. Mr. Lewis and
the other county olllclals were repre
sented by Attorneys W, J. Hand and
M. J. 'Martin, and the county by its
solicitor, H. L. Taylor, former County
Solicitor II, A. Knapp and former City
Solicitor I, II. Hums.
A Jury was selected and It was there
upon ndmltted that the county Is in
debted to Mr. Lewis for fees In tho
sum of $120. Argument was then heard
on the question of Mr. LewlV right to
collect fees for his services. Ills at
torneys maintained that it would be a
clear violation of the constitution to
say that ho must accept a salary rather
than fees. He was elected In Novem
ber and the fact that the county has a
population of over 150,000 was not an
nounced by the census department un
til some time later, therefore, to now
say that Mr, Lewis must accept a dif
ferent form of compensation from that
which prevailed when he was elected
would go directly counter to tho con
stitution which declares that no office
holder's salary or emoluments can Im
changed nfter he has been elected.
The argument on the part o" the
county did not attack Mr. Lewis' In
tel pretatlon of the constitutional pro
vision, but set forth that the fact of
the census does not apply to tho date
when it Is announced but as of date
when It was taken nnd ascertained
which was last June, manymonths be
fore Mr. Lewis was elected. It wns
contended that when he was elected
the district attorney that tho county
had a population of over l&O.OOO and
that he is therefore only entitled to tho
salary allowed by the legislating to
the district attorneys of counties hav
ing a population of over ISO.-mO
Judge Archbald directed the jury to
return a verdict of ?i:o in favor of
Mr. Lewis and In doing so spoke ao
(entltmen of the Jury: A cowling to the plain
lilt's contention he Is entitled to neeiie com
pensation by fees under the act of 1'iCO, which
applies to district attorneys of this county; un
der the contention on the put of the county of
I.aikawanna, against whom this milt fs brought,
and which will hae to pay whatcier Is due to
the ditrict attorney, they claim the talary let
of lS7d wint into effect this ,car, bec.iue this
is a census jcar, the part jeir, nnd the federal
renws has ascertained that the county had a
population ot over UO.iXiO. Our Constitution di
rects that wlnre counties haie that populitlon
the offiicrs shall he paid by salar.i. In pursuance
of that pioilslnn a law was uv.cd In 1870 fixing
the fees of the curious ortlcer. If that act
applies, then the plaintiff is not entitled to
rccour; on the other hand, if It does not apply,
if the foimer act to which I hao uferred Is the
one, and he Is entitled to be paid by fees, then
he would be entitled to a verdict of ifl'JO.
lli.it Is a epiestlon of considerable moment and
not a little intricacy. It has been argued before
me at length. I hate in a measure an opinion
upon it, but I would like to hae the opinion
of the other judges of the court as well as my
own. I would haie more confidence, and ou
would bate more confidence, the community who
are cncdecl and the officials of the county would
be better Kitl-flnl, no doubt, if the judgment
giuu is that of all three of the members of the
court. I li.no but little doubt that both la
colleagues will be hue on satin day or on Mon
day, therefore I bate decided to take tills
coume to elluct as u formal matter that sou
lender a urdiit In the plaintiff's faor for 120,
but that jour unliit fliall be Mibjut to a
question of la.v which I will reverie, whether,
under the tails, which lire not in li.".ute, and
which hae bicu agreed upon and put on ncjnl,
the plalntltf ii entitled to recoier, with lean-,
it the court should be of opinion that the Irw
in the cae is with the defendant rather Hun
with the plaintltl, that we liny enter Judgment
In taior of the defendant, notwithstanding the
crdlet which ,ioii ko lender. Tli.it will pmleit

If we mid the plaintiff, under the law as we
ecmcelie it to tie. Is entitled to this inllel why
It will dand; If we are leiniliiivl Hut he Is not,
then we will direct judgment to bi cuteied,
notwithstanding Hie UTillit for the deiendant.
