morning ir. Editor ai
riends. We are down at o

see no need to go all arou:
bin Hood's barn to get in at t
ack door. This is a nice way,
start a paragraph, isn't it, but
the editor of this paper will alk
me the privilege. I will show v
what I mean.
Last week just ended a term
two weeks court of common ple;
which included an extra week, I
cause there was an over producti
of civil cases w'hich had accuni
lated on the docket. If we ha
understood the proceedings of t
court, the first week there were ti
cases that went before the jury, o
of which was decided, the other o
was carried over into the seco
weeek's court which took twQ da
longer to finish, this necessitati
48 jurors instead of 36. The li
I have never heard of before, ti
separate and distinct sets of jur
lingering around the court liot
at the same time. Finally the cot

day, after ten days of hard wo:
But this is old rich Newberry a
who gives a cent for expenses.
Mr. Editor, I see that you are -
vocating the next tax returns
be made at its full value. You wc
everybody to return his property
the rate of one hundred per cent

We are guessing, and we beli<
that we are guessing too low, wl.
we say that it cost the county $i
per day to run the court. Then
it has cost us three thousand d
lars to try three cases, it is very n
ural to supj>ose that we are goi
to need more'money before we
this' delket cleai1ed up.
I have been informed that th<
are piles of old cases that have b<
on file, carried over from one co
to another for 'the past twei
years. If this is the case, Mr. I
itor, I see where you are right
advocating the returns of all pri
erty at its full value, for we a
certainly need more money to i
our courts, but this is old r?ch N<
berry, let her roll.
I am not complaining to you, 3
Editor, I lay no blame at y<
door, I don't suppose there is a:

WVe are a progressive people,
must not look -back at little thii
like this. A county with ovei
million dollars orn, deposit ca
nothing for expenses.
We have no dispensary mai
now to supply our school fun
but nevertheless there are 2,370'
cur dogs assessed, which brings
$1,185 to be divided among ab<
4,000 children, giving each clF
39 1-2 cents. If there is anoti
county in the state, or state in1
union that can beat this, I w;
them to blowv their horn. The d
law has brought an increase of d<
on the tax books to the amount
350 over last year, and I think if
trustees of each school district v
look around in every corner,
increase for another year will s
Now, I am going to make a s1
gestion to our legislators. We ha
plenty of money to run the cou1
plenty for the schools, but1
quite enough to keep up our put

special tax of one dollar a head
all cats, and let this amount rem;
as a special road fund.
