Lindale, Ga. ACT OVERRULED Cullman Law Fixing Witnesses Pay Held Unconstitutional MONTGOMERY, La. -(AP) Atty. Gen. A.

A. Carmichael has ruled that sections of the Griffith act of 1919 fixing the pay of witnesses in criminal cases in Cullman County at 75 cents daily and their mileage at cents a mile, was unconstitutional. He ruled that no county could fix, by local law, a rate of pay for witnesses different from the uniform rate over the state, and pointed out that the rate in 1919 was $1. He held, however, that other sections of the act were valid and could be continued in operation. The fact that the state later lowered the uniform rate to 75 cents for witnesses, he said, did not "breathe life" into the statute that was invalid at the time of its passage.
