"Those who are pointing
to the crimes coinmitteil in
our county and saying that
local option is a failure are
forgetful of the fact that it
has not yet had a fair trial
here in our county. The
county lias not really been
dry during this time for the
reason that it supply depot is
maintained in Caruthersville
where any person could ob
tain what he wished and
from which place, he could
have his supplies shipped at
any time. The removal of
the saloons in this city would
make a great difference in
the conditions in tho coun
ty." -Caruthersvillo Argus,

gus will bo right in the fray with
both feet. If the Argus is hon
est and wants to do anything,
why does it not join with the
Hayti Herald in demanding coun
ty unit, or in the absence of that,
a different city population law
that will place such cities as Hay
ti and Caruthersville on an equal
footing? We repeat, if the Ar
gus is honest, why does it not do
or say something to place itself
on record as demanding .justice
and fairness to all the people and
all the cities of the county? Hay-
ti is just as good as Caruthers
ville and deserves the same treat-
ment. All the people of Hayti meet a reasonable compromise in

square, known as the city hall,
we will explain.
The city put the building on
the square believing that the
county owned the title to tho
land, and it was meant as a gift
to the county for si courthouse
should the county si sit, over be
removed to Hayti. 1 f the county
scat was never removed to Hayti
it was supposed 1 he county would
not object to the city using the
building for a city hall.
The city also believed this
block belonged to the inhabitants
of the town as a public square
until it should be used, for court
house purposes, no msttter who
owned the title to same. If this
block was given to the public- for
a public square, those who own
ed the title, whether the county
or private persons, could not in
terfere with the inhabitants of
Hayti using it for a public
The fact a building has been
erected on the square by the city
does not make it any less a pub

right to recover. If they cannot all circumstances. It is the du

no objection to the building re
maining on it.
Tho question to be decided by
the supremo court is whether or
not the Hayes' dedicated this
block for a public square, and
not whether the city had a right
to erect a building on it.
Thi evidence shows that the
Hayes' did dedicate the square
as public property, in case the
county seat was not removed to
Hayti, and the 101 1 decision of the
supremo court affects only the
rights of the county, and not the
rights of tlie citizens of Hayti.

ants, who, while pretending to
want what is reasonable, want
something more. We are will-'

llcient, as the interest of the pub

lieve this is fair, and unless the
claimants propose to speculate at
the expense of tho public they
should accept it. So far. "they"
huc led lis to believe a compro
mise is impossible. If we lose in
the end, it will not hurt us to any
great degree. The septa re will
probably remain in the same con
dition, with the building on it.
The building will be perhaps ill -tererl
in some respects and rent
ed for some purpose if a renter
can be found, which of course
would be impossible. The owners
will pay the city and county tax
es on same, and therefore it oc
curs to us the claimants will be
losers if they win in the final de

should wo lose in the final de
cision the city would then com
pel the claimants to pay the city
for the improvements. If the
claimants will pay tho city for
the improvements they can have

to do in the end if they win. So,

''For the future welfare of
the city of Hayti, it is re
grettable that tho litigation

ties concerned. "-Caruthersville
Thus the Argus expresses a
desire that a compromise be
made in the city hull case, be
cause it would bo for the future
welfare of Ilnyti. We are sur
prised, but glad to note the Ar
gus is interested in Hayti's fu
ture welfare. There is some
thing that would hurt Hayti
more than losing her public
square, and that would bo to lose
her saloons and have another
four years of local option such as
wo had from 10015 to IS) 10. Will
the Argus kindly express its
good wishes for Hayti on this
proposition as well? Say. who
is that laughing? Shut the door,
