Auditor w. A. Snider discusses ditch notices he says he has followed an old Rule and had not established a precedent. We noted in the express thursday evening that attorney general j. M. Sheets had rendered an opinion that county auditors could not charge More than 0 cents per Hundred words in preparing ditching notices and Only receive pay for one copy of such notice. This opinion was called out by a Case presented by i. F. Open Lander prosecutor of this county. Auditor w. A. Snider sent out 900 notices in the Vogelsong joint ditch matter. The first notice at the above rate amounted to $1.23, the sum total of All the notices was $1107. The attorney general holds that or. Snider can Only be paid for the first notice $1.23. Or. Snider was out of town Early in the Day thursday and could not be seen. A representative of the daily express called upon him thursday evening and to stated that the figures above were True. The Only thing. He. Regretted was the implied charge that he was the first to present such fees in a ditch Case. That he said was not True. The Law is a Little indefinite As to who shall make out these notices but for years the work has fallen to the auditor. In sending out these notices he followed the Rule that had prevailed for years not Only in Defiance county but in other counties throughout the state. The auditor read letters from the auditors in Henry Putnam Paulding and Van Wert counties to show that they too had received the same rate Snider had charged in the Case passed upon by the attorney general. The auditor of Paulding went further and said the same question had been carried up to the common pleas court in that county and the court had held that the auditor should be paid for each notice served. When or. Snider presented his Bill to the commissioners they thought it was Large and referred it to prosecutor Openlander for his opinion and he in turn submitted it to judge sheets. The auditor says he does not want the fees if they Are illegal and Only objects to the implication that he had introduced a new Rule on fees. Ile said he did simply what other auditors in the county have done Aud cited the facts that auditor j. A. Deindoerfer received $500 or $000 for sending out similar notices in the Gordon Creek dil amp tic matter. It would be hard to convince the general Public that $1,000 was not too much for sending out notices to 900 persons but on the other hand $1.23 would be a very Small Price for the service. The Case it is thought will be passed upon again. Castoria for infants and children.
