WOULD RAISE SALARIES
OF CERTAIN OFFICERS
Dan Barnes of Lake spent Tues
day in our city and called at our
office for a chat. Dan is trying
t3 get the people interested in a
bill to raise the salary of county
attorney to a price that will in
duce the best attorneys to accept
the office , and to raise the price
for county commissioners to $5.00
per day and traveling expenses so
our best men will be induced to do
the work. Dan thinks it would
be money well spent and the stock
men would gladly pay their share
of a § 2,000 salary for a good
county attorney who could secure
a conviction of a cattle thief rath
er than have the good attorney on
the other side aid the thief to
go free. We are inclined to be
lieve that Dan is right and that a
good attorney should receive the
highest salary of any of our coun
ty officers rather than the meanest
salary and bear the odium of hav
ing nothing to do but look wise
and dismiss cases or permit them
to go by default for want of ability
to cope with superior talent. Our
commonwealth ought to be better
able to pay for good services than
the rogues who menace our stock
men and pilfer here and there.
THE DEMOCKAT says clean up the
country and put these rogues to
work. They are better in the
pen than at large if they won't
I v/ork. If you see a man or set of
I men constantly idle and making
no effort to find work they'll bear
watching and should be taken as
vagrants for the peace and safety
of our citizens who earn their
bread. Dan is right in his ideas
and we could have done worse
than to elect him county com
missioner. Come to the front
good people and think this matter
over intelligently. There's com
mon sense in it. When party
lines are thrown aside and people
use their God given horse s nse
they will see where they have
blundered in the past by following
foolish customs and stampede
ideas of all going together , or just
because some one else said it was
the popular thing to do. Get a
A special term of court was
