There should be a stop put to

I was rather amus:d at an item
in the letter to the Banner from
its special correspondent at Fort
McCoy last week, in which he
says: "The most interesting fea
ture of the day is the discussion
of moving this old voting" pre
cinct from this old established
place to Eureka.
such a move.'' Now the people
of Eureka think it a very good
idea. AVe admit that" Fort Mc
Coy is nearer the center of the
precinct, but Eureka is nearer
the center of population, and not
only population but is the busi
ness center, there being nothing
to constitute a village at Fort
McCoy but a church and a school
house. Eureka with her four good
gencral merchandise stores, one
drug store, a first-class hotel and
goodly numbers of dwelling
houses, forms quite a nice little
town, and is headquarters for all
the pull-boatmen on the river,
besides the turpentine and saw
mill men at Marshville, forming
a good majority of the voters of
the precinct. Of course a few
would have to travel farther, but
as they form the minority, we
think the majority should rule.
The minority have been accom
modated for lo these ma 113' years,
so why not accommodate the ma
