County Expenses Faced with statutory requirements which it h;i<! no choice but to meet, the Mississippi county (|iionim i<nii't this \vcek did just ;iljout nil it pnip- evly could toward meclini; tho domuvul for reduction in county oxptMiililiifi;::, but Hint was very little. If tlie court deserves any criticism it is certainly not for its refusal io attempt to exercise powers which do not belong to it, but rather for its failure to express itself on a i>ro;rr;im of legislative relief through which the financial problems of this ami other hard pressed counties might be solved. Governor-elect Futrell lias promised to bring before the legislature specific recommendations for a CO per cent reduction in the cost of operating the state-, government. It is even more important, from Ihc standpoint of the taxpayers of (Instate, that an equally ilclinilc program for reduction ol county expendiirres be ready for legislative action. Salaries, court expenditures, jail costs, the fee system, overlapping and duplication of police functions all nuiit have attention if local governniunl;; are to function with the reduced revenues that are in prospect for the present and the immediate future. Judge Zal H. Harrison told the quorum court that establishment, of Mississippi county as a separate judicial district would save the taxpayers of this county $15,000 "iimially. One judge would handle civil, criminal and chancery work, justice would be speedier, and long and expensive jail detentions pending trial would be eliminated. Under such an arrangement we would need only one man for the prosecution of criminal cases, mid he could be paid an adequate salary ami still leaves KHbstantial saving (u (he county. Is there any good reason under the sun why that should not be done? Furthermore, if 50 cents per day id adequate for feeding ami caring for the unfortunate poor of the county, why is it necessary to pay 81 a day for jail board? Certainly there is room for an important saving here. Directly or indirectly the people of the Chickasawbii township of this county arc contributing to the support of a city police department, a township constable with numerous deputies, and the sheriff's office. Isn't there room for a paving here? All of the major county and judicial OUT OUR WAY salaries remain as (ix'.'d by the legislature at a time when Hie county and state were relatively pro.-perous and living costs -.wi'i'i: lii;rhi'r.
