Attorney Smith prosecuted tho case
These are the cases which originated
nt Forgan in January and which were
disposed of at that time in such a
rank manner on n, pretense ot a com
promise but, in fact,, upon terms dic
tated by the defendants, and to which
tho Herald took exception to the
actions of County Attorney Smith in
his lax manner of prosacution follow
ing so closely upod his pre-election
campaign thunder In which he clam
ored for law-enforcement and declared
In siren tones that ho would know no
fear or favor in prosecuting bootleggers
Following th criticism which ap
peared in the Herald and which was
voiced by the best people in all parts
of the county, County Attorney Smith
re-opened the cases and, whereas they
were formorly dismissed, a conviction
In each case tried, was made.
While the Hkbald possibly engen
dered tho deepest condemnation of the
Honorable Claude T. in presuming to
question his official acts, which he
plainly informed us was none of our
builness nor that of the public, yet,
we'll try to live over that, and at least
give him credit for acting upon our
suggestion, and prosecuting nnd secur

W. O. 8wanwlck, of tho Swanwlck
Hydraulic, Sanitary and Electrical
(engineering Company, ot Joplln, Mis
souri, was hero the first of the week
looking up tho feasibility nt an elec
tric light nnd waterworks plant for
Beaver nnd ho oppressed himself as
being very favorably Impressed with
the outlook nnd, that it the proposed
stub lino of railroad was built from
Heaver to Forgan, that his company
would in all probability be able to com
plete plans for the installation ot a
light and water system for Beaver.
Think what It would mean to havo
the convenience and benefit of such a
systom. Laying all other advantages
aildo the matter of fire protection
which such would Insure, should be
enough to cause us to all make a des
perato effort to land tho road and sub
sequently the water system. It is
worth our whllo to bo up and doing.
Gamblers Plead Guilty
As a result of the agitation in the
J)2atlvgR(jig.and gambling circles, and
tne succcssiut prosecution anu convic
tion of offenders In Justice Court last
week, Ray Dow, Joo Baker and Fred
tones, other offenders which wero con
nected with th" cases at Forgan and
wero arrested at that time and the
cases subsequently dismissed, but were
again held for tho off-mco, appeared
Wednesday injustice Court and plead
guilty ns charged nnd wero fined In the
sum nf 125 00 each and costs.
This kind of business is whut pleases
tho people of tho county who favor law
enforcement. They like to see tho
guilty ones brought to Justice and some
pretense at punishment inflicted. It
is tho only way to put down tho law
less element nnd It will only tako a
fow good stiff convictions to rid tho
community nf their undeilrablo presence
