therefore that the Individual records

The . universal recognition ' .that has
been bestowed upon the Stelnwuy Piano,

Whether nearly. all tha work none by

when a letter- was -'received" " trom
County" Judge Webster In which It was
asserted that only eight of Mm Fields
denutv assistants are deputies, while
the remaining is are employed as -"ad

special -work.
The letter was sent to the oounty
vlerk la refusing to grant ths petition
of a number of male employes for In

the law which provides for the sppoint.

"That Is the onlv provision made by

"The temporary anbtstsuits for special

be paid such reasonable compensation
as this court may fix. but such em

Question of Authority. ,JL
Under this leW of the statute taken
by the county court tt appears that tha
employee who ara deputies have author
ity -which those classed as "additional
help have not, and that there Is a
distinction as to tha character of tha
service to ba rendered. Every ona of
Mr. Field's force haa constantly exer
cised authority aa a deputy . county
clerk, such as administering oaths. Is
suing licenses and performing the same
duties that Mr. Flolda may perform.
The question was asked whether such
duties were not . Illegally performed
when done by those employes who are
merely "additional help." Mr. Fields
said he bad not made any distinctions,
but had sworn all his assistants as
deputies," and If he were forced to dla
tlngulsh who were deputies and who
were not .ha could not tell which fhey
were. , ' .
"Every person "I now have employed
Is absolutely necessary to transact the

Mr. Flelda yesterday,' "and I do not
