Ewtor JOURNAL: In reply to the edi
torial in the Hirahl of the 4th lust.
wish to demonstrate that the Herald?
tatement in regard to the fee for the de
fense in the Coker trial is decidedly il
logical and misleading. This is shown
when the Herald quotes the Statute in
reference to the matter. The language
of the Statute as given by it is as fol
No bill, claim or account shall be al
lowed by the board until the .said bill,
claim or account nas nrsi oeeu
ined and allowed by the court
whom said trial was had."
The Statute plainly says that the bill
must be allowed by tne court before
whom the trial was had. The supreme
court has decided that the county com
missioners have no discretion in the
matter and that their duty is purely to
carry out the command of the court.
