This figure a in Robaul a ill be increased by later returns since some Revenue collectors have not yet reported their final tabulations. This is More than the Treasury expected from this instalment payment and without a com delete analysis on vials believe it is accounted for by the fact that Many citizens paid their tax in full instead of taking advantage of the in Tail Lieut privilege. An examination of records Viil be undertaken later to ascertain a Hether the total yield Flora income and profits taxes exceed the preliminary estimate of approximately $4,000,000.

Today every regular division in the american expeditionary forces is with the army of occupation. May we ask if we Are to be the last to return if we Are to remain Here just because re veterans thousands of men and in fact the vast majority of the volunteers left Good Homes Good positions Good jobs their loved ones and ail the luxuries of life in the states to answer their country s Call.

Is unselfish Ness to be Rev arched by injustice no right must win. What is to become of the Volunteer a the Pioneer published by the sixth Indianapolis ind., March 13, 1919. To All township trustees for your information i have pre. Pared the following statements which will answer the Many inquiries we Are receiving relative to the subjects herein set out by township trustees. The act of yl7, p. 602, Section 1, provides Quot that the township officers herein named shall receive for their service the compensation provided in this act and they shall receive no other compensation the township trustee personally takes the enumeration of voters school children and soldiers and sailors As provided by Law is not entitled to any compensation therefor other than his salary As such trustee. Enumeration of voters. If the township trustee employs assistants to take the enumeration of voters As provided for in Section 7135, Burns r. 1914, such assistants should be paid for their services by the county and not by the Tov a ship such enumeration should include every White and coloured male inhabitant Over the age of Twenty one years residing at the time of making such enumeration within the Bounds of the township. This would include the voters of the cities and towns As Well As other parts of the township. The statute does not provide whether payment for such service shall be made by the Day or by the head. If payment is made by the head the amount paid should be reasonable. The argument for paving by the head is that if this method is pursued tiie numer cation will include All persons to be enumerated and will therefore be full and Complete. From our Best information the average per head is seven or eight cents usually running from five to ten cents per head owing to the locality and demand for help. School enumeration. If the trustee employs assistants to take the school enumeration As provided by Section 6447, Burns r. A 1914, such assistants should be paid for their services out of the special school fund appropriation for such purposes. The statute provides that the compensation allowed for services in taking such enumeration shall be reasonable in amount. A i he a their respective expense boys and girls club. The statutes do not provide that papers delivered to the Postof the township i trustee can pay town fice the people began coming in and ship Money for promoting Quot boys and girls it is our opinion that no Public funds can be expended for such purpose either by the township or by the county except Section 66411, Burns r. S., 191., provides that the county agent May conduct boys and girls clubs and contest , and that his salary and expenses shall be paid. Certainly this Means the agent s expenses and not the expenses of any club. Jones and Jackson of Lafayette Viil Assisi state s attorney in prosecution of contractor. Quot Hon. Gilbert Hendren state examiner Indianapolis Indiana dear sir a i have your letter of March 12th, in which you ask Quot is the township trustee for taking the Sexen Nial enumeration of voters As provided for in Section 7132 and following sections entitled to compensation from the county therefor in addition to his salary As trustee As provided for in the acts of 1917, p. 602? Quot if the township trustee employs assistants to take the enumeration of voters As provided for in Section 7132, Burns r. 5-, 1914, should such assistants be paid for their services by the county or should they be paid from the appropriation for clerical assistance in the township fund of the Tov ship Quot it is my opinion it the township trustee takes the enumeration pursuant to sections 7132 to 7155, Burns r. S., 1914, he is not entitled to any compensation for doing so since Quot the act of 1917 acts of 1917, p. 6tlw fixes the salary of such officer and provides that he shall receive for his services the com Pensa Tion provided in the act and that he shall receive no other compensation whatever see also strokes is.
