KNOX COUNTY OFFICIALS GET SALARIES ON PHONY CENSUS Pay Raised la l aad Official ' area la lIO tae that Katlaaate ll Tn HI.. BLOOMriKU. Neb.. I ec ii-eclal ) The government census of isO credited Knox county with a population of 343 and the U1 cemus gives it IK .3TA. a gain of 4.0"J In the decade The more the taxpay ers of this county have been studying these two census reporte for the last few weeks, the more they are becoming thoroughly aaakened from their lethargy and are aek Ing themselves the pertinent question: YVhy they have been paying; their county officials and their deputies salaries for the last six or seven years based on a population of 2. 50". a population that every reasonable and Intelligent man In the county believed to be several thousand too Mgh during those years. On July 11. Vi. the county board met at tha county seat and went through some kind of a pretenae to take testimony in order to determine the population of the county, and after thla deliberation immedi ately resolved that the population of the county In IK was 71.M3. la 16 was 22.162. and In IMS) was 22.00. No seoner had the board agreed on this population of the county then It forthwith proceeded to get busy boosting the talarle of the officials and their deputies. It raised the sheriffs salary from SI. 500 to tl.Tad. the county at torney's from to I1.M, and the deputy Clark and deputy treasurer each the extra to 11 O. and the board even became so Imbued with such a fplrlt cf generoity that It went back and paid the deputy clerk and deputy treasuerer each the extra DUO per year from 15 O up to A the lilO census shows only a popula tion cf H.IZ'S and the board's census of IMS shows 22.500. a difference of 4.142 or a losa of population In four years. It be comes plainly evident that several thou sand dollars has been paid out to thoae county officials In the way of excessive salaries, and the question that now arises la the minds of the taxpayers is: YVon't somebody have to pay this money drawn In excessive salaries back to the county?

Probably unuk any other city post office In th I'nited Eta tea. th Omaha posioffic Is cleared of Christmas mall. Tha attention of Postmaster B. F. Thomas has been called to th conditions of many postofflces of the sam six aa Omaha's throughout tha country and in nearly every Instance, ha says, tha mails ax still congested. Postmaster Thomas accounts for tbe quick dispatching of mails through the local branch offloe by th new system in stalled this Christmas season. Fifteen ex tra carriers and thlrty-fie extta clerks wer employed for th holiday season, and th mail cars which mak sixty trips a day to th depots increased their number of trips upon Friday and Saturday. Cars went to the depots with mail as soon as thsy wer filled Ignoring schedules. "An unusual thing happened thla year. said th postmaster, "which obviated the usual congested conditions to a great ex tent. Fifty carriers voluntarily cam back to work Saturday night. Wc also had ons subcarrler for every three regular carriers to expedite delivery. The carriers de livered Saturday night 9i extra registered package. In former years it was th rule it send out notices to persons who had registered mill requiring thrrn to coma to the post off! c and get it Since last year th rule has been changed so that the carrier can deliver registered mail. At previous Christmas times the mails hav been very congested because the people did not get these notices in time or they dels)d coming after their package until the very last day.
