propriation for traveling expenses for
district Judges by half and added ho
tel expenses , to the list of expenses
to bo paid by the state. The total of
$3,000 was not sufficient to stand this
added burden of hotel bills contracted
by district judges when they are

ficiency claims have already been
filed , and only cloven of the twenty-
eight district Judges In the state have
