The ruling was made upm In- luiry by W. H. Phlpps, clerk of the ower body. It was brought to the attorney general's attention that the house, by adopting n resolution, had Increased the rale ol pay of the sergcint-at-arins from $5 lo f6 per day, and also hnd raised .salaries of several assistants. Salaries Fl«d by Law The acts of 1921 fixed these salaries and Phlpps questioned whether the acts of the house's resolution passed last week took precedent.
