for Kentucky not only becau it is the solution offered by one of the states senators to a question of great national importance but because Kentucky has ot late shown a keen inter est in tins subject The meaure pro poeed by Senator McCreary increase the reafiction upon undesirable immi grants and increases the facilities b which states with representatives at immigrant ports may secure from the great mas ot immigrants thatarepour tug into the country whatever they may needof the better das of agriculture and industrial laborers aud protect themselves measurably immi Krauts of an udesirable kludIThe first of these things Senator Mc Oreary proposed to do by increasing the tax on immigrants from two to five dollars by adding to the list of ezclnd ed immigrants and by increasing the efficiency of the inxpection service for enforcing this exclusion Theother end is to be promoted by authorizing and iiirecting the Gommssioner General of Immigration to maintain in connection with each immigrant station a bureau which shall furnish information as to the resources products manufactures climate soil prices of land etc of each State aud Territory the route of travel thereto and the cost of transportation the opportunities for employment in each State and Territory in the various skilled and unskilled occupations together with the rates of wages and the cost of living To the same endand this is of special interest in view of pending legislation in Kentucky Sen itor McCrearyd bill provides that when any State desires to maintain an agent at any immigrant station of the United States the Commissioner General of Immigration shall provide such an ajt nt with suitable quarters permit him to have access to all immigrants and give him aid far as potBible It is important that the United States hjuld adopt stringent measures for the iclubion of undesirable immigrants in view of the accumulated evidence showing that au organized effort is be ing made to unload a vastly greater number than usual of urh immigrants on this country- It is likewise especially important 0 Kentucky that this State should not pasiuivelyVtake its chances without flout to protect or help

John F Wagers Sheriff N B Turpin Judge and J Tevis Cobb County Attorney though sincere are wrong in their contention and the County Attorney J Tevis Cobb could have collected both from a legal and moral standpoint 108816 more than he did collect Judge N B Turpin saved the county this much money in the settlement that he made and acted legally in issuing the order complained of and he Sheriff John F Wagers was strictly in the scope of his authority in countersigning this order complained of by these tax payers MADISON CIRCUIT COURT M F AHBUOKIE A S Con anda1n tIWSHELBY JETT N B DEATHERAGEVB JOPINION IN FULL JOHN F WAGERS N B TURPIN and Defendants J TEVIS COBB The plaintiffs in this case who are citizens and tax payers of Madi son County bring this suit against the defendants to secure the pay ment into the treasury of the county the sum ot 75000 which was paid to the defendant Cobb by the county treasurer on the 16th day of February 1903 which payment the plaintiffs claim wa a wrongful and an illegal one At the time the payment was made the defendant Wagers was sheriff of Madison County Turpin was Judge and Cobb was the coun ty attorney Judge Turpin issued the voucher or warrant for the money and Sheriff Wagers countersigned it IUSTIFIOATION AND DEFENSE The justification for the payment of this money to the defendant Cobb as presented in the separate answers filed by the defendants is that the Fiscal Court of Madison County at its October Term 1901 in- fixing the salary of the County Attorney for the term of four years be ginning on the first Monday in January 1902 by an order entered in the regular way provided that the county attorney should be paid a salary of SI 050 per annum and should have as a further part of his salary an amount equal to thirtythree and onethird per cent of what ever back taxes whether franchise property or poll tax from individ uals or corporations that he ml gin collect or cause to be collected from year to year and the defendants claim and allege their verified an ewers that just prior to February 16th 1903 the defendant Cobb collected or caused to be collected for Madison County the sum of 551449 on account of the back franchise due and owing by the Louisville and Nashville Railroad Company for the years 1898 to 1901 inclusive i that Mr Cobb under an agreement with Tnrpin as County Judge consented rrro re uCf his compensation for collecting this sum from 183816 the ful I thirtythree and onethird per cent which the order fixing the salary gave him to i5000 or less than fourteen per cent and that the author ityot the County Judge for issuing the warrant was the order of the Fiscal Court made in October 1901 by the terms of which the defendant Cobb was actually entitled to receive 183816 VALIDITY AND LEGALITY OF THE ORDER defensepresenthforFiscal Court made at the October Term 1901 Section 1840 of the Kentucky Statutes provides that the Fiscal Court shall have jurisdiction to appropriate county funds authorized by law to be appropriated and to regulate and control the fiscal affairs and prop erty of the county Section 132 of the Kentucky Statutes provides that the County At torney shall be allowed annually by the Fiscal Court a reasonable ealary to be paid out of the county levy CONSTITUTION REQUIRED THE COURT TO MAKE THIS ORDER IT WAS STRICTLY LEGAL By plain implication if not by express words the Constitution of CountyAttorneybefore the terms of such officers begin This requirement is found in construingtliatsaid that the purpose of it is to make the officer secure in his cOmPensa- tion and free him from the danger of injustice from an unfriendly power that was authorized to fix salaries and Jeee and also to prevent the of ficers from procuring an increase of compensation by undue influence NO POWER TQ CHANGE SALARY AFTER ELECTION The order of the Fiscal Court made at the October Term 1901 fixed the compensation to be paid the County Jndge the County Attorney and the Superintendent of Schools the tbree salaried officers of the county for the terms to begin the first Monday in January 1902 and to continue for fuur years from that date This action was in strict and literal compliance with the constitutional requirement that the salaries should be fixed before the terms began and alter being thus fixed the Fiscal Court under the Constitution had no power to change them after the officers were elected at the November election 1901 Mr Cobb was elected County Attorney in November 1901 and his term of office began on the first Monday in January 1902 At the time of his election and introduction into office the compensation to be paid the County At torney was already fixed by the order of October 1901 FISCAL COURT DID ITS DUTY It can not be seriously contended that it was notthe positive duty of the Fiscal Court at its October Term 1901 to flit the salary of the County Attorney for the next term of four years The next question to leeahiayIramount to be paid the County Attorney but leaves that to the discre tion of the Fiscal Court Tbat discretion can not be eentrolledjy this court It has been suggested in the argument that the Legislature by using the term salary meant that the bompeasatipa faouldbe fixed at some certain and definite sum Tbat possibly would be true if we are compelled to give the word salary its narrow technical meshing Suprethetonrtand laws ie frequently used in the broader and more comprehensive sense of compensation whether sach compenaatloa is limited to a fixed sum of motley or is payable in fees or commission Tie KLR818irdpliesthM1ipower to lxtheIar el a jmblk offleUl my fix it oa a baefe ohcthan a dft4 s The ujCMf wedk t ii lIt Mowt 14m Lfrn- T L money that came to appellees hands had bsen intended to be the basi8 of compensation the Fiscal Court should have made his salary a per centum instead of a fixed sum RIGHT OF FISCAL COURT TO FIX COMPENSATION OF COUNTY ATTORNEY There can be no other reasonable conclusion than thai the Fiscal Court had the legal right to fir the compensation pf the County Attor ney in such a way and on such a basis as would in the judgment of that court be most beneficial to the county and at the same time comply with the requirement of the law that it should be reasonable pay to the County Attorney and it is the judgment and opinion of this court that th order of October 1901 was a valid and legal exercise of power by the Madison Fiscal Court EARNEST CONTENTION tfF PLAINTIFFS COUNSEL It has been most earnestly urged in argument by plaintiffs counsel that conceding that the order oi October 1C01 is valid and conceding that Mr Cobb earned and is entitled to receive the 75000 the manner in which it was paid to him was irregular and that he should be reo quired to pay it back to the county in order that the county may repay to him in the regular way If the purpose ofthe plaintiffs Is to be de termined from their original petition and from the admissions of their counsel the contention just suggested was their only contention at the inception of this suit It is not claimed in tne original petition that Madison County did not owe Mr Cobb this 75000 or that he was not justly entitled to receive it It is not claimed by the plaintiffs that the defendants Wagers and Turpin profited a single penny by this transac tion The plaintiffs however filed an amended petition in this case on the 26th day of February 1006 in which they state that the defendant Cobb was not entitled under the law to receive the 750 00 That alle gation does not necessarily mean tbat Mr Cobb had not earned and that the county did not owe him that money The fair and proper construc tion to be given that amendment is eimply that in the opinion of the pleader the county could not legally pay Mr Cobb and he could not legally receive tbat money It is what is known in law as merely a legal conclusion and is not such an allegation of fact as the rules of good pleading require a pleader to make PAYMENT OF THIS 75000 TO MR COBB WAS REGULAR If the purpose of this suit is simply to correct an irregularity then it may well be doubted if this case comes up to the requirement of the law that controversies must be real before the courts will take cogni zance of them The judges do not make the law they interpret and ap ply it and do this only when real cases are regularly brought before the court but waiving that question tee court will undertake to determine whether or not the manner of the payment of this money to Mr Cobb was regular The Fiscal Court has no jurisdiction to appropriate the funds of the county for any purpose unless the law authorizes the ap propriation and no warrant can be legally drawn on the funds in the hands of the treasurer of the county unless the money has been by the Fiscal Court appropriated for the purpose for which the warrant is issued These two propositions are axiomatic These propositions which were argued with so much force by the counsel for the plaintiffs are not involved In the case which is presented in the pleadings filed by the par ties to this litigation It has been shown that the law authorizes the Fiscal Court to appropriate a portion of the funds of the county to the payment of the compensation which the law requires to be paid to the County Attorney While there was no order of the Fiscal Court appro priating the specific sum ol 75000 to be paid to Mr Cobb as a part of his salary there was before this warrant was drawn an order ol the Fiscal Court entered in thejregnlar way which in eficct appropriated to the County Attorney one third of whatever Bum he might collect Q cause to be collected On account of back taxes The answers in this caser show that Mr Cob as the County Attorney collected or caused to be collected for Madison County on account of back taxes the sum of 5514 49 which fact he reported to the County Judge The order above referred to had in effect appropriated 183316 of this sum to the County Attorney collecting or causing it to be collected By virtue of that order it was the duty and the legal right of the officer who is given authority to draw warrants on the county treasury to issue a warrant to Mr Cobb for the whole of that sum It that officer had the legal right to draw a warrant for the whole of that sum that right included the right to draV- a warrant for a part of it and neither the county nor the plalntiffs as the representatives of the county can be beard to complain that Mr Cobb consented to receive and that Judge Turpin paid to him consider ably less than one half the sum he was locally entitled to receive JUDGE WATTS PARKER OF LEXINGTON DE JIDE3 THIS SAME QUESTION In this view the Judge of this Court is not without support from eminent judicial authority Only this week and while this court has had this case under consideration the Hon Watts Parker the Judge of the Fayette Circuit Court has been called upon to decide and has de cided a question very similar to the one presented in this case The City Clerk ot Lexington had refused to sign a warrant in favor of D L Hardesty the Back Tax Collector for the City of Lexington on the grounds that Hardesty was indebted to the City and that no appropria tion for the paymAnt of the money had been made JIllt P irktr held that Mr Hardesty received certain fees in pryment of his salary and tbat as these fees are paid out of the money collected it was not neces sary tor the Council to make an appropriation and nquired the City Clerk to sign the warrant COUNTY JUDGE PROPER OFFICER TO DRAW WARRANTS The law does not prescribe wliat officer shall draw warrants on the county treanurer but the custom in most counties either in pursuance of an order of the Fiscal Court or as the result of a long continued practice is for the County Judge to do it and this is rightly so tor he is by virtue of his office to which he is elected by the people of his county its chief financial agent The only charge against Judge Turpin is that he drew and signed the warrant on the treasurer forthe 750 00 and the only charge against Mr Wagers is that countersigned the warrant It is no part ol the official duty of the sheriff to countersign the warrants drawn on the county treasurer In Madison county the practice of hav ing the sheriff to countersign these warrants prevails Thn sheriff is not a part of the Fiscal Court has no voice In its proceedings aud no vote on the allowance of claims against the county and has no record of the claims that may have been allowed against the county The practice of having the sheriff countersign the warrants came inio vogue some fifteen or twenty years ago when that officer acted as treasurer of the county and paid all claims against the county out of the taxes collected by him ana this practice has been handed down to the present time The law now provides for a county treasurer who is pay master fur the county Section 4140 of the Kentucky Statutes provides that the sheriff shall retain the amount of taxes and other public dues against any person or corporation out of any claim allowed by the Fiscal Co irt to ulltyforcounty against paying money who may be Indebted to the county for taxes or any other dues This is the whole of the defendant Wagers signedhisthe signature of the sheriff FACTS OF THE TRANSACTION The simple facts of the transaction at the time the warrant was Issued are that the defendant Cobb reported to the dnfendent Turpin that he bad collected 551449 from the Louisville and Nashville Rail road Company on account of the back franchise taxes due Madison County from tbat company for the years 1896 1897 1898 1899 1900 and 1901 and that under the order of October 1901 he was entitled to be paid of that sum 183816 Mr Cobb consented however to accept 750 00 thereby donating to the county the sum 01 108810 making a total net gain to the revenues of the county on accouut ot this collec tion of 476449 Many questions which involve the interests of the county fretvently arise when the Fiscal Court is not su session and presidingJudgehis office represents the county The County Judge cannot make non tracts which call for appropriations of money from the funds of the county unless he is authorized to do so by a proper order of the Fiscal Court but this Inhibition does not deny to the County Judge as the representative of the county to pay a creditor of the county on a claim which has been created and authorized by the Fiscal Court a smaller sum than the creditor is legally entitled to receive if the creditor is willing to accept the smaller sum in satisfaction of his claim The one who profits by such a transaction is the county not the Judge nor the creditor The law looks to the substance rather than to the mere ap webreakfind that the charge against Judge Turpin is that Instead of paying Mr theFiscalthereby saving to the county the sum oflOSS 16

new Idea of franchise taxation was a question of consid erable impirtance to it All the other corporations doing business in Madison ounty were similarly interested but not to the same extent financially The history of this litigation shows that no effort was made to h sve the franchises of the railroad companies doing business in this state assessed lor taxation until 1898 when Col Samuel H Stone a citi zen of Madison County was the Auditor of the State and by virtue of that office the Chairman of the State Board of Valuation and Assessment The first assessment was raide in 1893 by the State Board and it was oi the franchises of thejrailroadg for the years 1896 1897 1898 and 1899 In 1903 a similar assessment was made for that year On these franchise assessments the railroad companies paid their taxes to the state but under the construction given the law by the State Board of which Col Stone was Chairman no apportionments of these railroad franchisees Bessments were made among the counties and cities In December 1900 it was for the first time held by the State Board that these fran Chise assessments should be certified to tile various counties through which the railroads ran and that the counties were entitled to collect this franchise tax The railroad companies Immediately undertook to enjoin such action by the State Board and the question was not finally decided against the railroad companies until June 10th 1902 This litigation involved many doubtful questiona so doubtful in fact were some of them that the Court of Appeals of Kentucky on more than one of the questions reversed its own decision and many of the cases in which the various questions were involved were bandied several times between the Kentucky Court of Appeals and the Supreme Court of the United States Every conceivable legal obstacle was interposed bithe various corporate interests affect d by this new revenue act to avoid the payment of this franchise tax to the counties THE SUCCESS OF THIS LITIGATION MEANT THOUSANDS OF COLLARS TO JUADISON COUNTY The very definition of a franchise within the meaning of the act of 1892 as given by the Court of Appeals shows how difficult it was to work out the meaning of the Statute The C iurt saifl The corporate property sought by this statute to be subjected to taxation may be said to be the added value which the exercise by the corporation orany special or exclusive privilege or franchise not allowed by law to natural per questionslnsolvedpay this tax how the value of the franchise was to be ascertained whether or not the counties were entitled to tile franchise tax whether or not tile assessing board could make retrospective assessments that is assessments for the years that had passed and if so for how many years could the Board go back These questions were fraught with important consequences to the financial interests of Madison Cuunty and all the other counties of the state Thin litigation was pending in both state and ederal courts when the order of the Madison Fiscal Court of October 1901 was made Madison County was vitally interested in the result of this litigation It the counties won several thousand dol ItIsJune 1898 an order was entered by the Fiscal Court looking to the collection of this character of taxes from all corporations doing business in the county In view of this condition is it a matter of wonder that the Fiscal Court of this County desired a special legal representative to prorecttilehave felt that the Fiscal Court had been remiss in its duty to them if it thatliti1901 these questions of much importance to Madison County were still unsettled still in doubt If the County Attorney gave them such attention as their importance demanded it would require of that official more time and more labor than had ever before been required of a county attorney in this county That being the situation was it not the Countytoof Mr Cobb who was to be the County Attorney for the succeeding term was it either unreasonable or unwise for the court in fixing his compensation to fix it on such a basis as would justify him in looking after this unusual and extraordinary litigation dud at tie same time in view of the fact that success in the litigation was at best problemati cal to fix the matter of compensation in such a way that unless the county was successful itwould incur no expense 5808l8 18 ADDED TO THE ASSESSED PROPERTY BY REASON OF MR COBBS WORK UNDER THIS ORDER CountyThewere assessed for taxation was 58081818 The corporations doingbnsi ness in Madison County other than the three National Banks which do not now pay taxes on their franchises last year paid taxes on their franchises to Madison County to the amount of 3194 50 and that sum or approximately that sum is now a permanent annual payment to the county No ordinary tax collector could efficiently protect the interest of Madison County in these difficult and iiitrcate legal contests and a necessity existed for the Fiscal Court of Madison County to authorize a person possessed of legal ability to represent it in the collection of this character of taxes In view of these conditions these circumstances the existence of which was known to all persons who kept themselves reasonably well informed with regard to public affairs the propriety of the action of the Madison Fiscal Court in making provision to secure the collection of this considerable item of taxes and having this charac ter of property placed permanently on the list of taxable property ot the county can not be with any reason criticised These are the conditions of the existence of which influenced the Fiscal Court of Madison County to wake the order of October 1901 which is now complained of by the plaintiffs DU TY

civic duty rests upon the citizens of a county than to keep a close and intelligent scrutiuo upon the acts of their public official and no citizen should be subjected to censure for openly and

that in the institution and prosecution of this action they were influenced orprompt ed by other than a biicert desire accomplish goouforthe county but the judge of tliiscourt is oi the opinion that their action in instituting this suit resulted from a misconception of the law or from an nun eous view of the legal oiled of the orders of the Fiscal Court ruaJe tin reference to the matters involved in this litigation On the other ham the record in this case makes the truth of the statement so plain thin no one can question it tbat the conduct ot the tbree defendants whoe official integrity is questioned in this proceeding acted in entire hOod faith and clearly within the limits of the law in the tranfactoii which was made the basis of this suit There was absolutely nothing hidden or secret in their conduct Every step was made a 1ublicrecord open to the inspection of all men The transaction had the approval of two Fiscal Courts of this county the membership oi which was entirely different The court which adoped tile order of October 1901 was composed of E C Million presiding judge and justices Armer Wells Mttcalfe tiny Young and Cotton while the court which in October 1702 reaffirmed that order was composed of N B Turpin proBiuing judge and justices Dykes Williams Berry Lane Johnson Luiitiuu Coy and Bogie and the court which In April 1805 expressly latiiieit aud approved the paymeut of the 750 00to the iefehdant Cobbws composed of N B Turpin presiding judge and justices Dykes u liauis Berry Broughtou Johnson Luueford Coy and JogIe The effort has been made in this opinion to dispose of all the real all the substantial questions presedted In this case Some of tue merelp incidental and technical questions that were mentioned in the argu ment have not been noticed FIle defendants have suggested that tue opinionetc 20 K 1 K 1056 which seems to sustain that view In that cane suit was brought by certain taxpayers of Robertson County against she l ouuty Judge and his sureties claiming that the County J udge bad ac cepted an Insufficient bond tr m the sheriff of the county and that by reason of that fact the county had lost the taxes which the sheriff mid failed to account for The Circuit Court held that the tax payers wlio brought that suit could not maintain it and the Court of Appeals in af firming that decision said We are of opinion that by these two see tions 1834 and 1840 ol the Statute all right of action for an on bohalt of the county is in the Fiscal Curt and that until tuat court refuses to insiitutH suit none else may do so

that tho man who had the audacity to sign his name to such an article and flaunt it in tnfi face of a reading and intelligent pub lic Is little short of an ignoramus of the low water mark This gentleman P who has such a high conception of whIt the laboring man shouldand ought to be has fully dmonstrated he is a man of rare attainments and great learning who would prove of inestimable valne to his conntry if his great knowledge of men and affairs were more widely known Just pow there is a great deal of agitation as to who shall dig the Panama canal Ac cording to the theory advanced by the gentleman i in question Uncle Sam is capable of digging the canal with his own force In the PhilippineIs lands our colonial possessions we have millicns of ignorant subjects who if under the

President Roosevelt but after making further inves tigations some facts were revealed to us that put a damper on our plan In looking over the records we found some grave charges against the gentleman
