Protest of Taxpayers.
CALDWELL PARISH, LA.
March 26th, 1894.
Editor WATCHMAN:
We, the undersigned citizens
and taxpayers of the Parish of
OCaltwell, hereby adopt, endlorse
and trge all the reasons, tmcts
uati legal olbjections st ilt. /a
public irOtest by our fatlhtw-a tt

your vainable t paper on the 23rd1

legal objections. In the first
place, even if the citizens and
taxpayers were able to bear such
a burden at this imtue--and we
say they are tint-there is no ne
cessity tfr such all expensive,
and costly courthouse, for suchli ai
diitlinutive parish as Uttihlwell,
being eslly about 24 miles square,
and whose asselsllent rolls are
among the Ilwest of thie poorest
parishes ot the State. The court
holuse, which we nlow have, was
bnilt in tore pr, sp'ronis times
thanit we now have at a co.t of
only $2,100, all told, and whet, I
new, and tfor a long series of
years thereafter, answered all bhe
pm poses for which a courtlhouse
is neededl for the admlinlistra' ionl
of jlstice, and nlo CotIIdliimLt was
heard from our people as to the
size of the house i1 their Imost
prosperous days. We believe
that with all expenditure of Four
or Five Hudred dollars, judici
.tlaid ou ot our presrnt
rthiouse, it can be strentrh
enledautdl repairtedl us tto mltake
