GQURT GRAFT. At one time, my
dear children, minister and judges
were not all good, honest men and
would take advantage of the poor
Uow I recall a time when judges
and ministers said: "There are a
"number of cheap fellows who become
justices of the people and take away
a large percentage of our graft by
cheaper marriage service. We must
devise some method to destroy them
for they have become so brazen that
they hang around the court building
for odd jobs.
Now, children, these grafters were
being beaten at their own game,- so
they set their publicity writers to
work and wrote up a few of these
cheaper grafters and painted them in
very bad colors.
The average public being very
green, I think it was away back in
the year 1914, fell for this bunk. The?
judges, seeing how well the work had
been done, fell upon their enemies
and completely annihilated them.
Now it so happened that a- couple
in moderate circumstances secured
& marriage license and asked in the
cewt building for a place to be mar
ried at a reasonable rate. They were
directed to a municipal court, on an
lipper floor, where a certain judge,
by name La Buy, was sitting. There
they were met by a court attendant,
who told them the ost would be. $5
for. the ceremony and $1 additional
iqt the ceruncate. i
The man said: "My brother wast
married for $2 and givea'tke certifi
cate." '
"Oh!" said the attendant, "we have
done away with all that sort of thing.
Those men have been put out of busi
ness and you must be married by a
court or a minister and it wfal cost
you the same either place." So the
poor fellow had to take money from
his house furnishing fund to make up
the difference. Thus was another
legerdemain stunt pulled off on the
poor, ignorant public. C. E. A.
