The new board of county commis

chairman, E. B, Rickman and Frank
Davis took office Monday morning and
for three days have been busily en
waged in their work.
The new appointments! were made

Joe Liner was appointed as day

Mr. Patton, present janitor. Mr. Pat

Eston Caldwell was named night
The naming of a county attorney
was not entered on the minutes. The
commissioners stating however that
they had made up their minds as 'to
who would be named.
As the office of auditor is from April
first to April first, a change in this
office was not brought up.
The commissioners requested that
County agent Jas. L. Robinson, hand
in his resignation effective the first of
the year. The commissioners do not
plan to maintain this office any longer.
Other than the above appointments,
the commissioners devoted their time
, to the general routine of business. An
investigation was made to the "why
and wherefore" of the different ex
penses of the county.
The general impression of the board,
as expressed by those attending their
first meeting, was that the new board
was going to be hard to get donations
from . The policy of the board is that
no donations will be given out by them,
but all cases will be refered to the
welfare officer for investigation. The
board, is however, providing tools and
materials for the construction and im
provement of public properties in the
county, and the unemployed are given
work on these projects.
The board, passed an order for the
materials for building a sidewalk at
West Canton School. The work will
be done by men now unemployed.
A number of cases appeared before
the board asking for donations, but
these were refered to the welfare
board for an investigation and in cases
where help is needed it will he given,
it was said.
The hew board intends to eliminate
all unnecessary expenses, hut in no
way do they intend to Ro so far as
to impair the progress of the county,
it was pointed out.
The new board has made a genera!
survey of the conditions and needs of
the county and will make improve
ments gradually. It was impossible
to accomplish all this, however, in
three days, when there were so many
applications to be considered for the
different offices that the commission
ers are responsible for, it was learned.
Haywood county's new officials went
into office Monday morning at 10
o'clock. W. G. Byers, clerk of Superior
Court administered the oaths of of
fice. There were no public installa
tion exsreises except in the case of
J. A. Lowe, Sheriff, and his deputies,
who were installed in the presence of
the court and a large crowd that had
gathered to witness the trial of the
negro. Charlie Rose, charged with
attempted criminal assault.
The following are the officials who
took the oath of office and began their
duties: J. C. Welch, tax collector; Ed
