Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 10, 1909, Lethbridge, Alberta THE LETHBRIDQE DAILY HERALD, WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER II, IMI PAGE FIVE Ambassadors Must Spend At Least a Year It is calculated that no American Ambassador to the Court of St. James can possibly keep up his uo- sition upon an income of less than a year, says Pearson's Week- ly, and this only by paying less than half the rent paid for Dorchester House. Consequently it is impossible for any man who is not extremely wealthy to accept such a position as that which Mr. Joseph Choate, Mr. John Hay and Mr. Whitclaw Reid have filled. English Well Paid English Ambassadors are far -better paid. The representative in Paris re- ceives and at Constantinople The salaries of our ambas- sadors to Austria, Germany and Rus- sia are the same, bu-t he who goes to Washington only gets and. as 1 he is forced to entertain on a grand scale, he, too, must be a wealthy man. However, in addition to their salaries, all our ambassadors live rent free. Most of the embassies be- long to us, and at St. Petersburg, we have no house of our own. there 'is an allowance of a year for rent. 'Lord Mayor of London A position which none but a rich man. can possibly fill is that of Lord Mayor of London. Certainly the City contributes the handsome of to his expenses during "his year of office, but this does not "nearly cover the enormous expendi- ture necessitated by the constant en- tertainments at the Mansion House. A Good Spender .The cost of the Lord Mayor's Show -and banquet alone is about half of which comes out of the Lord Mayor's own pocket. His other dis- bursements are placed at so that is the sum which he is of pocket. Roughly is a year's income on a capital of Expensive Jobs All mayoralties entail much ex- pense upon the holders -thereof, and as a the larger the city the more wealthy must be he who wears the mayoral robes. Choosing of Sheriffs In old days sheriffs were elected by their respective counties. But a j statute of Edward II. put an end to j i the practice, and ever since the high sheriffs are chosen by the Crown. Each Feb. 3 the lists arc submitted to the sovereign, who, with a punch provided for the purpose, pricks off the chosen names. Got to Take the Job A sheriff so chosen cannot refuse to .serve. If he does he is heavily fined. Yet he gets no salary at all. His duties are many and comprise at tending on the judge who holds the assizes. A high sheriff of Hampshire once forgot the date of the judge's arrival and failed to turn up at the station. For this omission he was fined One Consolation A general election means endless t responsibilities and expense for the' high sheriff, an-d he is legally respon- sible for the carrying out and execu- tion of all judgments and orders of 1 courts of law within his county. His one consolation is that he cannot be compelled to serve a second -time. M. P. Expensive Position It is only within the past few years that men without large private in- comes have been able to offer 'them- selves for election to the House of Commons, -and even to-day the Labor members must receive a salary from their party in order to enable them to exist as M.P.'s. Costs Per Vote; The average cost of a contested Parliamentary election in England, whether for successful candidates or unsuccessful, works out at per vote, and election expenses .are but a tithe of the calls on the purse of a member of Parliament. Subscriptions alone to various objects in their own constituencies run ,.up a yearly total which is usually well into four fig- ures. Although a candidate for Par- liamentary honors need not be a mil- lionaire, he must be a weal- thy'man. Kimball Notes The Primary officers and children held a fair here on Oct. 29th. A very fine showing was made of nice needle work done by the little girls under the direction ol the sewing class leaders. There was also some verv nice work done by the boys in the shape of burnt wood, etc. This work should indeed be encouraged, as it teaches the children such things that Taylorville Has t a Town Pump Taylorville, Nov. 8.
