Rallnat on sheriffs' Peon.
Attorney Oeneral Thompson is flooded
with .questions concerning the salaries and
fees of sheriffs, as fixed by the recent leg
islature. Under an old statute sheriffs are
allowed $2 a day for delivering prisoners
to the penitentiary, to be paid by this state,
Mr. Thompson Is Inclined to the opinion
that this fee goes to the sheriff aa an
a i;ent of the state and need not be reported
to the county commissioners with the other
fees which sheriffs are required to report.
In some counties this law will materially
Increase the Income of sheriffs, aa It will
be paid In addition to the Increased salaries
of the sheriffs. .--
County Attorney Jay C. Moore of Johnson
county has requested the attorney general
to Interpret that part of the law which
reads as follows: "Provided, further, that
the sheriff shall, on the first Tuesday In
January, April, July and October of each
year make a report to the Board of County
Commissioners or Supervisors, under oath,
shelving the different items of fees, except
mileage, collected or earned, from whom,
at what time and for what service, and
the total amount of fees collected or
earned by such officer since the last re
port, and also the amount collected or
earned for the current year, and he shall
then pay all fees earned to the county
In reply Attotimy Oeneral Thompson
said: "My Interpretation of this provision
Is that the sheriff Is required to report, at
the time stated, the Items of fees, except
mileage either collected or earned, speci
fying them, and that he shall also report
the total amount of fees collected and
tamed, not specified. Including mileage, and
ihall pay over to the county treasurer all
fee earned. Including mileage. In my
Judgment the purpose of this act was to

l.onar Pino Will Bo "Dry."
LONG PINE. Neb.. May 11 (Special.)
In spite of the fact that the high license
party carried the election by an overwhelm
ing majority, Long Pine will be a dry
town for a period of at least three weeks.
Four applications for license were pre
sented to the town board, and against, the
granting of these licenses strenuous re-
monstrances were offered by the members
of the temperance party. The hearing of
this matter was set for Thursday, May 9.
The remonstrances seemed to be based on
some technical points In the old ordinances
regarding the licenses. The board, after
hearing both sides of the case, decided to
repeal the old ordinance and at the next
meeting, which was held Thursday evening.
May S, passed a new ordinance regarding
the granting of saloon licenses. New peti
tions will have to be maae and their pub
lication, with the publication of the new
ordinance, will require three weeks' time,
so that It will be at least three weeks
before the saloons can open up.
