Beck waa given the oath after

work followed and there were aud
Ible sighs of disappointment when
the senate adjourned 35 minutes
to receive salaries of $2000 a
year. ; The legislature iaier cre
ated two additional judgeships.
and subsequently two more jus
tices were added to the court. The
court Is" now composed of seven
judges, with salaries of 17800 a
Mr. Kay said that -hlle It was
true that, the legislature had in
creased the salaries of the gover
nor, secretary of state and trea
surer without amending the con
stitution, the action was taken to
remedy a vicious practice which
prevailed In this state many years j
Used to Keep Fees
It was pointed .out by Mr. Kay
that the constitutional salaries
paid to the secretary, of state and
state treasurer In the early days
was only a small part of the mon
ey they received. The secretary of
state. In addition to receiving a
salary of J1500 a year, was allow
ed to retain certain fees which
boosted hi Income to more than
125,000 a year.
There was little, or no restraint
placed upon the state treasurer
and he was allowed to loan the
public . I unds and pocket any
amount of Interest he received.
The state treasurer's ; salary was
estimated by Mr. Kay as S 2 0,0 00
Mr. Kay also referred to the of
fice of state "printer, which he
said was one of the most sought
after public 'jobs in ; the state.
Through the fattening of legal
forms and liberal allowances of
the state and g-overnment, this of
ficial received as much as $3 0,0 CO
In a single year. .
Because of these abuses .Mr.
Kay said he prepared and Intro
duced In the legislature many
years ago a bill known as the sal
ary law. He declared that certain ,
state officials fought the bill bit
terly, bul that it finally was ad
opted.' The bill eliminated the fee,
system, and prevented the state
treasurer from receiving any part
of the interest accruing from pub
lic funds. Under this law all. fees
and Interest was credited to the
general fund forcurrentxpenses.
:- Mr. Kay said that the enact
ment of this law saved the taxpay
er's of the state hundreds'of thou
sands of dollars.
I The state"treasurer said the su
preme court at one time held that
the legislature had authority to
increase the number of justices cf
the state supreme court, and fix
salaries commensurate with their
duties. It was Mr. Kay's opinion
that a similar ruling would be
made by the 'supreme court la
event the suits now proposed by
Mr. Watkins are appealed to that
court for final consideration.
Neither Governor Patterson nor
Secretary of State Koser would
comment. on Mr. Watkln's -announcement.
