Comco rd Times. March lat. .
A called meeting of the city al
dermen was held Tuesday night
to discuss a matter which had re
cently been sprung. It seems that
some one had discovered that
there was no authority for the al
dermen receiving the sum of $100
a year each as compensation, and
the matter was referred to their
attorney, L. T. Hartsell, He
!ooked into the matter and advis
ed them Tuesday night that that
there existed no authorit y t .
allow them to draw a y compeu
satijn whatever. The aldermen
began drawing salary In 1890 and
up to three years ago each mem ber
drew $24 a year. Since that
time they have been t?ettii)g $100
a ' year each, It seems from At
torue Hartsell 's opinion that all
salaries are illegal, and unless
some relief is given by the Ugis
lature, each man will have to re
fund all that has been paid him.'
It is hoped that the matter may
be adjusted in this way
