The Upper Des Moines-Republican, February 4, 1931 REPRESENTATIVE TELS OF BILLS Representative Bonnstetter Says Officials Ask for Higher Salaries. COURT REPORTERS OUGHT TO FARM Mr. Bonnstetter Shows a Disposition to try and Reduce Enormous Expenses of Slate. (By Representative Bonnstetter.) State House. January 29. To the Upper Des Moines-Republican: Then are two groups of legislative member.' at every session, "those who profil by the expenditure of state funds" .and "the people out in the state who pay the bills." The former group is composed of men who favor the S""" 000,000 bond amendment, those who. in these trying times, faster movements of unnecessary improvements in cur state institutions and also others who are in sympathy with public servants who dfslre an increase in salaries, even under the present conditions. As a member of the compensation of public .officers committee, I regret to note the unreasonable demands made by various organizations of certain classes of publls servants. One group in particular In which each member receiving a minimum salary of $2400.00 per year, and all expenses during the time he is on duty, introduced a bill which is asking an increase of S1200.00 per year. The argument to justify this increase is not based on the question of ability to pay, by those who must carry this additional burden, but rather on what other states are paying for similar positions. I might as well tell you that the group to which I refer Is no other than our court reporters. Under present conditions, a poor man can hardly afford to go to court and ask for justice unless a considerable sum of money is involved. The cost of a trial soon absorbs the amount in question, hence settlements for trivial sums are uslally made. Still the reporters want to add to the cost of court proceedings. I suggest that these dissatisfied gentlemen try fanning for a year or two and in this man- near learn to appreciate their present position and salary. I might mention other bills which call for similar increases but the one mentioned will give you some Idea as to the demands made on the legislature. The opinion of- Auorney General Fletcher has caused much concern to a number of the members in the house I might say here that those of us who fostered the movement to secure the attorney general's opinion on the proposed amendment, anticipated the very reply submitted to the house Wednesday. The fact that the opposing members sought to avoid the attorney general's opinion on the amendment, shows that' they also anticipated the -fluhstanca of hla rpplv. Monday at ten a. m. the house will consider the proposed amendment as a special order and preparations are being made for at least seven hours of debate on the question. We are looking forward to a real treat, in the form of oratory, at the above mentioned time. I noticed in the morning Register, the attempt made by C. C. Clifton, news correspondent for the above mentioned paper, to muddle the minds of Iowa people in discussing the motives of the members opposed to the proposed amendment. Recently this soap box philosopher had one of his pet theories exploded when the present speaker was selected and before the road question is settled, he may be •placed in a position to beat a further retreat, ?"? n ?.tOr Benson of Clayton Is now proposing a Joker In which he seeks to have the supreme court rule on the validity of the amendment, in case the measure passes the house, so as to avoid the expense of submitting the matter to the people, should the court rule the amendment unconstitu- . tional. I am not a lawyer but I feel that our supreme court Is not a moot tourt and to rule on a case that is not in existence appears very foolish to me, I regard it us an attempt to gain votes for the amendment. A public hearing on the proposed state income tax question was he-Id yesterday afternoon find n similar hearing on the proposed county assessor law was held toclav. Both tildes of those problems were discussed in debato by people from different parts of the state. Representative Donlon took part in the discussion and floored the president of the taxpayers' league in a very clever manner. It, i:; past midnight KO will bring this rambling letter to a close.

While there Christ asked him to give a credit statement to replace one that had been given previously. As Fred was the one who looked after all the busniess Christ gave Walter a credit statement to be taken home for his mdther and brot.hor, Fred, to sign. Walter noted under the heading of "Liabilities'" that the amount due the State Bank of Ledyard was $600 and told Christ then that the amount was more, but Christ said that the credit statement was merely to satisfy the bank examiners, making good the Schwartz paper which was of several years' standing. Walter took the statement home and his brother, Fred, signed for himself and for his mother as Christ had suggested to Walter that he should do. Divorce Granted. Among the other cases which have been brought for Hearing the past week include several on which judgments were taken and one divorce action. Mathilda Rowan was granted a divorce from John Rowan. The Rowans were married at St. Paul February 15, 1915, and lived together until June 15, 1928, when the defendant deserted :iis wife and failed to support her. Mrs. Rowan was restored her maiden name which was Mathilda Hubbard. The jury is summoned to appear on Thursday morning. The jury mem- jers who were serving on the Schwartz case were notified after the case was dismissed last night that they need not appear today. A case involving some hidden property is scheduled for this afternoon. Oesterreicher Case Dismissed. Both cases against Ross Oesterreicher have been dismissed. Oesterreicher was indicted on a charge of illegal pos- iession of intoxicating liquor but at ,he trial the jury disagreed. He was ater indicted on a charge of attempt- d bribery, but before the grand jury reported he'had agreed to pay the costs of the previous case which amounted to about $90 and the cases were joth dismissed. Notes on Land Bought. It seemed that the notes owing by Schwartz and his mother were on land which they had purchased. Later the and w&s transferred to Walter Schwartz for a consideration of about 800 which he had advanced, from his ndividual earnings to pay interest and axes on the farm after the date on vhich the last credit statement was nade, and for the further considera- ion that he should take care of his mother as long as she lives. The farm was transferred to Walter Schwartz ast July. Episcopal Church, There will bo .services in St. Thomas church on Sundnv, February 8th at seven-thirty in thr evi-ning.

More than fifty members of the Sunday School read the book of Psalms during the month of January. Continuing the Bible reading campaign, we are asking our knembeirs and friends to unite in the reading of the book of Proverbs during the month of February. A chapter a day, with an extra chapter on Sundays will complete the-task. The attendance at Sunday school did not quite reach the fourjjundred mark last Sunday, but came so near that we believe it will reach that number in a few Sundays with the earnest cooperation of all our many friends. Come next Sunday and bring some one who Is not now attending n Sunday School.
