COUNTY COMMISSIONERS' COURT.
^ Some of the Proceedings of a Special
Session Held During the Month
The Courier last week published
some of the proceedings of the May
regular term of the commissioners'
court, which included all claims al-
lowed except exofficio salaries as
appeared in the minutes. We find
much interest manifested in the
commissioners' court proceedings,
especially in regard to the payment
of claims. A number of our sub-
scribers have asked us why we
have not published these proceed-
ings regularly. Our only explana-
• tion is that we have been busy with
other matters, such as the proceed-
ings of the district court, the gen-
eral rush of fall and winter busi-
ness, and previous to these, the
county fair and the good roads
question. Last week we had a little
breathing spell and took advantage
of it to get the proceedings of the
May term of the commissioners'
court. This week we give some of
the business transacted at a special
session of the court held in April,
which is in addition to the regular
This special session was held be-
ginning April 24, the purposes of
which were, as appears of record,
to make annual settlement with the
tax collector, to inspect the work
done by the national government
on the Porter Springs road ánd to
arrange for re-establishing, with the
aid of the Anderson county com-
missioners' court, the county line
between Anderson and Houston
The minutes do not show what
disposition, if any, was made of the
county line question.
