The voters of Washtenaw county will decide at the April election whether the county officers, with oue or two exceptions, shall receive stated salaries or fees as at present. The last legislature provided that the question should be submitted to the voters this spring and if the affirmative prevails it will become the duty of the supervisors to determine the salaries within the limitations of the act. The salary of the sheriff may be $2,500 to $3,000; under sheriff, $S00 to $1,000; deputy, $G00 to $1,000; treasurer, $1,S00 to $2,000, and clerk and register of deeds the same; deputies $600 to $1,000, and all other deputies will receive such compensation as the supervisors shall direct. Should the vote to adopt the new schedule prevail the fees received' by all the officers will be paid into the county treasury. No mention is made in the act of the judge of probate, the county school commissioner or any of the other county officers not enumerated and the salaries of all others will of course be left, as. now, to the supervisors.—Ypsilantian. Sweaters Presented. At a special chapel meeting Tuesday afternoon at the Ypsilanti High school, the formal presentation of the football sweaters was made.

This year the sweaters are white with a blue Y.

Subscribe for the OBSERVE! Quite A Problem. A certain citizen of the Fifth ward of this city has cost the second district in the past three years $1S0.*19 for board at the county house, and yet, for six months of the summers he has worked on the city streets at $1.75 a day. His wages in the summer go into the saloons and the 'city pays $2 a week for his keep during the other months. Here is the problem for the taxpayers. It would cost less te> keep him at the county house the entire year as he earns not more than 75 cents on the city streets.— Ypsilantian. -AdTf \P~ GRISWOLD HOUSE!
