TILE SALARY ODE MIXON
MR LEDITOR:—I am infOrnied and (I sup
pose correctly, for I have not the Auditor's
report before me), that the 'county Commis
sioners fixe d the - pay of the Treasurer of the,
bounty at a little over eighteen hundred. dol
lars, for the first year, and for the second year
of. his term they pay over three thousand
three hundred dollars. This they do with the
provision of, the Constitution staring them
plainly iu tau face. which says thitt the Com
pensation once fixed shall not be increased or
diminished during the time-for which the in
cumbent shall have been elected. I•am aware
that they try to justify themselves 'under the
plea that they fixed . the percentage at a cer
tain rate for receiving the county funds, and
a certain percentage for paying it out, and
that being governed by that rate the second
year of his term Made"the enormous sum of
more than $3,300 dollars. This can be re
garded in. no other light than an' utter die-.
regard of the interest of the tax payers. The
plain interpretation of the'Constitution would
give the Treasurer the same compensation
for the second and third years of. his term,
that he got the first year, and no more. It
is a strained legal constructions, against.
common sense and common honesty and de-,
cidodly againat.the interest of the tax payers

payers by bad advice and acted lionesty. ! If
so, then let them hasten to correct the error,
before they ask for.a re-election by a wronged
constituency. • • •
Permit me to ask what is compensation
under the plain meaning of the Constitution ?
Is it anything more or less than dollars and
cents? When they had determined the
amount they would pay tie Treasurer ander
a rule adopted by themselves and that
amount was ascertained to be. eighteen hun
dred dollars, more or less, it was the
end of it: The compensation was fixed and
could not be legally increased or diminished
during his term of office.
All the sophistry of interested friends and
legal. advisers cannot ove:turn this plain,
honest interpretation of the language ofthe
I am quite well aware that the position here
taken will be ridiculed by the parties inter

time will admit it is correct, and promise to
correct the wrong.in the future, but to what
extent -gentlemen? That is the question.
