THAT STOCK L.AW.
, To put a quietus on some of those
Old long-tongued gossipors, the kind
that are always ready to go oil half
cocked and talk about things they
know nothing about and when they
disagree with you start out to injure
you In a business way by underhanded
methods, let us turn to our issue of
APRIL 8, the 8th of this month, if you
please, and see what wu hud to say
Here it is; read it:
"We were a little surprised to
learn that a petition for a slock
law had been handed in (to the
city council) and REGRET THAT
THE PARTIES DID NOT WAIT
FOR THE NEW BOARD."
Can you read that and understand
That is exactly what we said.
What are you going to say now.
It generally pays to know what you
are talking about before you talk, and
people who are alwaj s ready to deride
their home paper are very undesirable
citizens and will never do the town
Look about -you and see what the
paper has done for the town in its
short life of six months.
Look at the harmony of the people.
Look how, after mouths of suspen
sion, the board gotten down to work,
looking after the interest of the town,
collecting taxes, etc.
Look at the new sidewalks and other
The ladies of the town organized a
Civic League for the upbuilding and
advancement of the town.
The public square has been graded.
Trees have been planted on the
Fencing has been ordered to fence
Everybody is pulling together and
working together for a greater and
The Hayti Herald has done more
actual good for the town during its
six months existence than any one
agency has done for the town in five
years, and is invuriably on the side
of right, yet there are a lot of people
in the town who are not subscribers
and who are secret enemies to it and
enemies to the town. We want every
business man and every friend to Hay
ti to comu to our olllce and look over
our list of subscribers and know just
who thoy are.
Now, lor the stock law. What we
said on April 8 shows our spirit of
lairness to the people, by desiring a
longer time in which to talk matters
over and arrive at an intelligent
understanding of the question.
Wo cannot exjMJCt too much ut once,
and ought not to expect to do too
much at once.
Wo must learn that every person
iias a RIGHT to his OPINION. This
right cannot be denied.
Any person has a., right to favor or
opposo the stock law, just as thoy
have a right to be a Methodist
Not all of us can have our
even if we do have our opinion.
In affairs of government tho
JORITY MUST RULK.
If wo live under a government wo
must abide by and bo submissive to
If a majority of tho peoplo in Hayti
want a stock law lot them have it, if
thoy vote for it and put it into effect.
For our part, wo favor a stock law,
in a mild form.
We favor a stock law that will not
molest country stock oxcopt where it
takes up In tho town und refuses to
A stock law should permit town
stock to go and return from tho range,
but require owners to keep it up at
Hogs should bo prohibited from
running at large.
A strict ordinance should bo enacted
prohibiting watering or feeding stock
on the outside, as this acts as u bait
to causo them to stop at such places.
Such a law as tills, we believe,
would bo a good compromise and ac
ceptable to all fairminded people.
But we do not say that the stock
law will carry at this election, as the
time is so short Jhat a campaign of
education cannot bomado. On this
account, not having time to place the
matter squarely before the people, tho
Herald cannot consistently make a
fight either way, only to express our
honest opinion, und If expressing an
honest opinion Is wrong and we are to
bo denied this right, wo are free to
confess that our eleven years citizen
ship in Htiyli has been spent In vain,
but we know all the good, progressive,
wideawake people who want to seo
Hayti become a city are with us, and
while many of them may feel that it is
too early now for a stock law, yet thoy
know it must come, sooner or later, if
Hayti ever becomes a city, and If thoy
do not vote for It now it doesnotmean
that they are against it, but simply
that they believe tho time for it has
All towns of any consequence must
have stock laws. A stock law is an
absolute necessity in order to have a
clean, well-kept, healthy and beautiful
town. Tho towns all around us havo
stock laws, and every newspaper in
Southeast Missouri favors a stock
law. But in every town where a stock
law is enacted there are a class who
light it. This is to be expected, and
if you are opposed to a stock law you
have a perfect right to go out and
fight it with all your might and main;
you would not bo honest if you did not
light for your opinion, but if you are
a gentleman or -a lady and possess
self-respect, intelligence and honor,
and have u due regard for the feeling,
rights, opinion and privileges of
others, you will lay down your little
hammer, your envy and your spite;
you will cust aside ill and personal
feeling and allow others tho same rights
that you, yourself, enjoy.
Vote like you please and do not
blame others for doing the same.
CAM PBtiLL STOCK LAW.
Campbel has a stock law that ap
plies only to hogs, and judging from
tho following in a recent issue of the
Citizen, that paper is not quite satis
lied. Hero's tho gem:
"Have you observed how energeti
cally Old Brindle has been trying to
destroy shade trees, overgreens and
gardens by poking her long neck over
your fence and bending the wire out
of shape with her breast? See how
nicely she clipped the top off of your
neighbor's shade tree just as it had
begun to put forth a few delicate
leuvea? Notico how intelligently She
selects the weak places in your garden
fence, pushes if over, walks in and de
vours a row of marrowfats before you
can inform her they are your property.
Did you cuss old brindled No, no,
the good old prowling rogue is tho
mother of Mrs. Gotum's babies and if
she is not allowed to forage on other
peoples property these precious babies
will suffer. Besides this, John Hard
worker gets buttermilk from Mrs. Go
tum, and John is a poor man, unuhle
to own a cow, and his children would
also suffer if Old Brindlo is deprived
of the use of other peoples' gardens,
lawns and orchards. Don't troat Old
Brindlo as you have the hogs, for she
is the life, tho soul, the marrow and
the backbone of every family in town
und no town can thrive without her
presence on the streets. That's why
St. Louis, Kansas City, Joplin, St.
Joe and several other towns of tho
state are in such a bad shape tho
cussed old city dads won't let Old
Brindle have free use of tho streets
and other folk's property."
The stock law may bo too early, and
it may not carry at this election, and
we are not making a light for it, but
merely placing this paper fairly on re
cord for civic advancement and im
provement. Several peoplo have
sought to muzzle us on this question
and have thruutcued to damage us in
a business way, and for this very
reason, to show the people that this
paper is not to be prevented from
standing for what it honestly believes
to be right, we are forced in protec
tion to our own honor, dignity and
good name to show just where we
stand. A newspaper that can be
bought, bulldozed or bluffed, is not
lit to go Into the homes of any solf
respecting people, and before we
would conduct that kind of a paper we
would step down and out. Every one
agrees that tho time is coming when
we must have a stock law. It is for
tho people, and not for us, to say
when that time comes. We do not and
have never said that time was NOW,
but we do say that when tho time does
come and when tho majority of people
wunt it and the majority of thorn vote
for it, then let them have it. It is not
for us, but for tho PEOPLE to say.
STOCK LAW IN MALDEN.
Maiden Merit' Tho Mayor and
Board of Alderman have mutually
agreed not to molest milch cows going
to und coming from the pastures in
the swamps. However, tho cowb muBt
be kept up at night. Hogs, goats,
horses and other animals will not he
permitted to run at large on the streets.
We believe tills decision of the Mayor
and Board of Alderman, to take effect
May 1st, will meet tho approbation of
It makes us tired to see a lot of men
cursing, iibuslng'Und lambasting this
paper who have never spent u cent
with it. When you hear a man say
ing hard things against the Hayti
Herald, kindly ask him if he Is a sub
scriber and if ho has a paid receipt,
or come to our ollice and look over
our books. Nine out of ten of these
loud mouthed peoplo are enemies to
the town and to everything In It, and
never miss a chance to give It a stab.
Wo have but few of such names on
our books, und as fust as we can dis
cover them wo will mark off those who
Have not paid. No good citizen and
friend to Hayti will fail to support
a Hayti newspuper.
A certain citizen of Hayti who has
about 50 head of hogs running at
lurge on our streets, openly confesses
that he has fed about 1000 poimds of
spoiled meat from the butcher'shop,
but no corn, during the past winter.
How do you like the idea of eating
hogmeat fattened this way? This is
only one example. There used to be
a butcher hero who fattened his hogs
in a slaughter pen and then killed these
for the people to eat. Of course the
meat was not good, but the people did
not know why. Town-raised hogs
ii.i-e fed very little corn and make very
If Hayti had more fool killers und
less town killers, it could have
a better to chance become a city.
We do not know who gotten up
petition for the stock law.
