Last week freights from Chloaeo and

this cutting of rates, with tbe necetsiry of

presided over by Judge Edward is oerttinly
a beacon light to all other circuit. We were
almost dafly In attendence at this oourt, In

Joints of law were presented to tbe court;

sides; they yielded and the cause went on
rapidly. The Judge in do iMtanoe, to my
knowledge, wished lime to consider points of
law presented to blm; attorneys, great and
small, the people of all classes and parties in
suit seem to be well satisfied with our new
judge. Judge Jlenigan, of Cir. CL-Xo. 2,
presided In tbe cause of Gordon vs. Kant, a
cause In wblch eight or ten tboniand dollan

Tbe Vindicator ot May 30th, invites the
publlo to speak out and tell bovr we under
stand the Banner In regard to "County
printing'' and tbon adds ask b ber Iff Brock
man what Jt meant, oh that It a clincher, he
proved It by Sheriff Broekmtn, sod yonr
eorretpondent it aware of tbe fact that the
Vindicator a few dayt tinofl Importuned our
County Clerk tor two mortal bourt to prove
tbe tame fact to wit: That "aounty print
ing" meant all printing In a newspaper tor
which compensation is asked or received,
lmply,becausitltdcmeajr4)ld tot by a
citiaeo of the eoanty; bnt the Clerk opnld
not see the matter In that light hence tbe
Vindicator's fact Is only established la tbs
mouth of one witness and that witness Is
ShrriS Brockatao, Now Mr. Editor w un
derstand "County Printing" to mean any
printing that Is done for the County as a
corporation, any printing that is under tbe
control pf tsld corporation through its trutr
toea the County Court, and lor which pay
ment Is to be made out ot the general Rever
nil fund of tald corporation.
When we tpoak of the "3ount Poor
Farm" wo refer to a farm owned by the
county a a atirporatlon, to support tbe pau
pers on: we dont mean that every poor farm
In tbe oounty whether owned by an individ
ual or not Is a "county poor farm;" when
wo speak of a "county pauper" we mean a
person supportod by tbe county in Iti corpor
ate capacity, and nt a person tupported by
the volentary aid and charity of Individual
citizens of tha county. If "county printing"
means what the Vindicator says It doe then
each and every Item of ootu In any suit In
our onurti, paid out by diluent of the oounty.
Is ooonty printing, and every poor farm
owned by any citizen of the oounty, it a
"County poor farm," and every poor pepion
who receive individual obarlty, from any
citixen ol the county It a "county pauper."
We bave suob a thing as ''State Printing"
now If the Vindicator ' logic about county
printing Is correct, then each and every item
of costs, expended by eay oltlzeo of tbe
