An Important Decision.
The supreme court in the ease of state
ex rel. Wessel vs. Weir has very clearly
interpreted Sec. 3-1, Chap. IS, statutes as
"The legislature by the above section,
(Sec. 34, Chap. 18) has limited the power
of county boards, in incurring county
indebtedness. They can not lawfully in
cur an indebtedness against the county,
in excess of the tax levied for the cur
Further on in the opinion the court
makes a clear distinction between the
kind of indebtedness incurred by the
statute as follows:
"As for the claims for making the tax
list and the salaries of the county clerk
and county attorney it is safe to say that
the provision of Sec. 34 in so far as they
limit the power of county boards to
create county indebtedness and bind the
county for its payment, have no applica
tion. The salary of a county officer is
not an indebtedness of the county which
is created or incurred by the county
board. The law makes it the fluty of
the county clerks and county attorneys
to discharge the duties of their; respec
tive offices imposed by law and they can
not refuse to perform the same in tlie
ground that the tax levy has ibeen ex
hausted nor is the county for tlit reason
releivedfrom paying the salaries of said
officers, but must provide for the pay
ment of tlie same."
Under tlie opinion a large pei cent, of
the county indebtedness is void, s lso quite
a per cent, of the Wessell Jaims on
proper proof to the court. Tlie court
says "there is an entire absenoj of proof
to show that when the indebtedness was
contracted the levies for 188(Were ex
hausted." The issues were nude up in
November, 1890, and L. O. i lull, who
was county attorney failed to ,ut in the
certificates showing that the evy was
exhausted at the time the im cbtcdness
in controversy was incurred. In order
ing the writ to include the cla ms in the
estimate of 1892 the court nakes the

its navment would absorb s much of

The conditions in Russia are becoming
more appalling as time passes. In some
districts the inhabitants of entire vil
lages are dying of starvation. The" doc
tors arelprescribing corn instead of medi
cine. The crop was a failure and now
a new insect whose ravage are worse
tlian the Hessian fly is at work and a
plague las broken out among the cattle.
Terrible suffering is in store for the peo
ple of that country and heavy imports
of food will be necessary to prevent tbera
from starving and the Russian govern
ment will have to furnish the means
with which to purchase the supplies.
