^Oklahoma Officials and Their Sal-
it can be safely predicted that with
the exception of the county attorney
bill and the relief afforded the county
commissioners by the board and high-
way bill, there will be no appreciable
increase of the salaries of county offi-
cials at this session, although the pres-
sure for substantial, and in some
cases even exorbitant, increases in sal-
aries hns b' en greater than ever before
in the history of the territory. Almost
every day since the beginning of the
session the lobbies and cloak rooms
of the council and house have b ei
crowded with delegations of newly
elected sheriffs, treasurers, county su-
perintendents and other county officers
energetically insisting to their local
representatives that their particular
office must have relief and that they
are the worst paid and most overworked
public servants in the territory. Mem-
bers have been waylaid in the liotflcor-
ridors, on street corner*, ai'd every
where by the officeho ders from their
district*, and importuned to introduce

by many members of both houses, and
the county officials went home hopeful
if not satisfied. Some of the bills car-
rying substantial increases were favor-
ably reported, and, in some instances,
passed in one bouse only to meet defeat
in the other.
Both houses contain member* who
have ^constituted themselves the es-
pecial guardians ad libitum of that
dearly beloved and generally helpless
protege of the politician, the tax payer,
and most of them work overtime, as
long as there ia a reporter in the house,
to convince a willing world that they
are the real thing in the watch dog of
the treasury line. On the other hand
there are no member* who care to
oome out openly a* the champions of a
raise in salaries. It is a question
