Council Backs Up.
With the exception of Dodds and
Betterswoith, the city dads backed
up in the breeching Tuesday night
on the stock ordinance, which was
recently enacted restraining cattle
from running at large in this city.
The lid is now off, and any quadru
ped may roam the streets and graze
semi-lawfully on the groceryman's
display of early vegetables. You
may still smite the hungry bovine on
the porterhouse if she litters your
walk or tramples your yard, but not
Some two weeks hence an election
will be held for the purpose of decid
ing whether or not our streets are to
be used for people, vehicles and
commerce or a grazing place for
horses and cattle and a wallowing
place for hogs.
Other towns the size of Hickmau
have stock laws for the sake of com
mon decency, and the Courier be
lieves Hickman should have some
claim on cleanliness and civic pride.
Yet if the majority are in favor of
pasturing the town, we will raise no
protest. One resident of the city
says if the law is abolished, he will
bring 100 head of hogs to tbe town
and turn them loose on the public
