Ways That are ami Paths Trodden Tlmt Excite Another Chapter on the Tramp Indus- try- Tlie District Attorney Investigating bj Order of the i ounty llonrd. Continuing the refrain commenced in last week's it might not be amiss to state that there are no flies on the marshal of Ocouomowoc. This reference is not intended as a slur upon the fair City of which contains five o's m its but is only to show that the marshal of the city of Oconomowoc has taken his cue from bis bretheren in Wauke- sha and is up to snuff. The bill of the mar shal of amounts to within a few dollars of He may have traveled in a great many undiscovered countries at ten cents a mile. We do not pretend to say he did n natural supposition to a man up a tree is that the greater portion of this bill of and some odd cents was accumu- lated in the fees and ten-cents-a-mile which the arrest of so-called vagrants in Oconomowoc and else where mukes allow- able. The JOURNAL is not awuro whether the marshal Ocouomowoc lins u railroad pass or granting that he has no he could.have made somewhoic in vicini- ty of 52.73 in every trip made to Waukesha with the festive or other prisoner on mileage alone because he makes a clean profit of seven cents a mile on forty miles on each trip The marshal oL' Pewaukee has a modest little bill of But the Coun- ty Board is still The constable of Hartluud is modest in his demand upon the County as is also the constable George Henry not the son of Henry The town of Eugle is more unsophisticated than other towns iu the County.

The pen pictures which the JOURNAL has tresented in this great and growing tramp udustry illustrates more and more the ibuse which is imposed upon the tax- myers. But the present County now n wo equal to tbe emer- gency are investigating utire matter. Last year the sheriff's salary was placed at This was in lieu of which heretofore had amounted to from to in the county. The County Board have ordered District D. to investigate this matter of and ascertain whether or not the county as been defrauded out of its rights. The District Attorney informs the JOUR- S'AT.. that he has a big on his words to that effect In inspecting the dockets of justices of the he finds en- tries made of cases but nothing to ihow the disposition nor the amount of money paid to settle such cases. Be- side this the justices are very reluctant to show their dockets. Whether it is necessary for a justice's docket to show a complete summary of each the JOURNAL is not prepaied to say. It may be permissble for a justice to pigeen hole the outcome of cases tried before him. According to the Dis- trict Attorney's investigation thus this evidently is a common as the entire result of his labors in this direction up to showed less than docketed to which the county is entitled. Every justice of the peace is required by law to pay over to the county treasurer all fines. Tbe law also gives justices quite a circle to turn around in.

OK 'KM. Party. The residence ot J. T. Wardrobe was in- vaded on Saturday night by a party of young married much to the surprise and pleasure of the worthy host and hostess. They brought their own commissary stores with to which they did ample as well as to all the other features of the en- tertainment Mr. Wardrobe hag just com- pleted an addition to his handsome and the surprise party may be regarded in the light of a house-warming.

A year ago our astute Village Fathers voted the purchase of fireproof ash re- ceivers to be furnished to the business with a view to provide for cleanli- ness and against fire.

This discrepancy is caused by a difference of two the re- presenting six and the rep- resenting fonr miles' travel. It would seem to the tax-payer that a justice must have an elastic conscience to allow even four miles for the distance travel- certainly four miles would be the outside and it appears that an officer would need to travel- by a very circuitous route to squeeze in four miles between the gas house and the jail.
