It is not a rule of this paper to
make comments on trials in the
circuit court nor to criticise or
applaud the results thereof, and
were it not for the fact that a re
publican newspaper of the coun
ty at great length and in minute
detail has commented upon the
recent trial of the present prose
cuting attorney ot the county in
the circuit court, for the alleged
offense of receiving certain
money from the county to which
he was not legally entitled, we
would say nothing about this
trial any more than we would
any other trial had in the circuit
court. We understand why this
republican paper said what it did
and in the way it did about this
particular trial. The prosecu
ting attorney, the defendant in
this trial, is the democratic nomi
nee for re-election, and he has an
opponent who is the nominee of
uie repuoucan party. 11 tins re
publican paper can belittle the
democratic nominee for prose
cuting attorney in the eyes of the
voters, according to the republi
can code of political procedure, it
would be short in the perform
ance of its duty to the republican
nominee for prosecuting attor
ney should it not do so. We re
fer to that code adopted bv
the republican bosses.
We know there are many Inm
ost republicans who believe in
clean politics, but this class of
gentlemen has very little to door
say with the management of
their party's affairs. We won
der what Gossom has done to
the "Republican" to receive such
an excoriation at its hands? And
we wonder why that paper said
nothing about other trials nad at
the present term of court? We
must be correct in our conclu-
sion that what was said about
Gossom's trial was said not for
the purpose of injuring Gossom,
but to injure his chances for re
election. So, believing this, and
in order, not to defend nor to
criticise anyone, but to advise
the public of the truth, we give
the true facts relative to the ease
mentioned. Mr. Gossom was '
chared with presenting a bill
to the county court in Septem
ber, a year ago, in the sum of
S5.f0, which he had paid out for
rig hire in attending prelimi
nary examinations at Steele and
Hayward. Before he presented
this bill to the county court he
examined the decisions oi
the supreme court to ascertain if
the county court could legally al
low him this expense, and he de
cided that this expense could be
legally allowed him by the coun
ty court, so he swore to the bill
that it was a lawful charge and HI
ed it with the county court, but
at the time told the county court
that they could allow him or not
allow him this expense as they
saw proper, but if they thought
it just, then he would be glad to
have it allowed, and the county
court allowed this bill and Mr.
Gossom received the money. The
reason for asking the county
court to pay this rig hire was
because the law required the
prosecuting attorney to attend
preliminary examinations, but
allowed him no fee therefor, and
so the county court and so did
Mr. Gossom, and so does every
body else, regardless- of legal
technicalities, thinlc that this
expense was just and should
have been allowed. Afterwards, '
nearly a year, Mr. Gossom was j
arrested and tried for receiving
this money, and under the in
sbruijtions of Judge Faris, upon
the evidence, tin honest .jury m-
quitted him in five minutes after
had retired to the jury
by a unanimous verdict.
As to whether or not this Sr.7()
for rig hire was a legal charge
agiinst the county we do not
know, as there is a great differ-'
ence of opinion about the matter
among hwyers. This question
has never been passed "P" di-
rectly by the higher courts of
Missouri, and as .ludgs Faris

question, without any assistance'
from rulings of the higher
courts, he did so according to
tne principles 01 law as ne un-
derstood them, and our confi-
deuce in his legal ability coin-in-
ces us that lie decided riglit, out,
this is no reason that we, or
The Republican, or anyone else,
should criticise Mr. Gossom be
cause he held an opposite view
from that adopted by the court.
It is not a rare thing that judges
and lawyers do not agree as to
the law. The most profound
lawyers in the land ofttimes find
themselves mistaken in the law,
and the courts decide against
them, yet they continue to be re-
recognized profound hwyorsand
and are spared the unpleasant
ness of having newspapers call
them "damphool .." as is the case
with the Republican. If Gossom
is a "damphool," then the judge,
the jury and the lawyer, who
tried him, find it difficult to sop-
erate thomselve.. lroin the Re.
publican's "Damphool Club," yet
some of these gentlemen are

Why does the Argus try to

Perhaps it is as a prominent

It is getting about time to look
after the new depot that is to be
built in Hayti. Quite awhile ago,
when the State Railroad and
Warehouse Commision met in St.
Louis, it was promised that work
would begin wjthin 150 days. I
The promise has not been kept, 1
and if there is any good reason
for this delay, the pooplo of Hay-1

is. We a re informed that work 1
will soon begin, but that infor
mation is not definate. Our
people should remember that
winter will soon be hero again,
and that if work is not begun
right away it will again be put
off until next spring, as it will
be impossible to do this kind of
work during the winter months.
Is it possible that the Frisco is
delaying for the purpose of hav
