The court having decided that the opening of the South Chestnut street, through the Thomas farm, was illegal last Sunday it was closed and the joke was on Commissioner Brull. He and a party of friends had been out on a political trip, which was very improper on Sunday, and coming from the south found the road closed. They left the auto there in the road, walked up to the hotel for dinner and then went back for another trip. But Mr. Thom as claims Mr. Brull has no right to complain as the county years ago leased a strip 150 feet wide along the north side of the railroad track from Hays to Ellis and the people are now demand ing that the .road be opened so the Yocemento people can easily come to Hays to live and trade but Mr. Brull has that road fenced up and closed and people have to cross the railroad track four times and travel on the south side with its dangers to get to Yocemento and the west side of the county. There is a good road along the north side of the track and Isaac Zeigler is ready to open it along his land before coming to Brail's farm. And Mr. Palmer is ready to open the road along his farm if all the others do so. Will Commissioner Brull do this to oblige the traveling public and business men of Hays? n 77 m- ill (G BIG ANNUAL c from 9 a. m. to 5 p. m, during which time our expert salesman," Mr- Bannerman, . will b e present with five hundred elegant garments direct from the factory.

No appeal was made and the matter was dropped. Suggestion was publicly made that a Road Petition 6houM be circulated for a public road and ready for the October meeting of the com missioners, but still it lay quiet and nothing was done. So this week Thom as again closed the road and the town again became excited, but at reqiest of frinds it was reopened to give inter esting parties a chance to act. The county can do nothing, so the city auth orities are figuring on hiring a lawyer and entering a eostly and long drawn law suit. In the meantime Thomas can close the road through their private property with no road open into town. A compromise would be far better and cheaper, or if no terms can be made, then have a road laid out from South Ash street along the section line to the bridge, which can be more quick ly done as the commissioners have not yet adjourned their regular October meeting. In this eorntetion it is said that Mrs. Thomas asked one of our business men some questions which are hard to ans wer: "Why the peeple ard the mayor should be so anxious to open South Chestnut street as a direct road, when North Chestnut street just - north of Mayor Schwaller's residence is allowed to be closed, when it was laid cut an open street? Now people goto Sch wallers, then go east a block, then up North Oak street and there is another closed road so you must go east another block before you get out of town, w hen down there all people have to do is to go one block west to the section line and a county bridge." Also, '"Why, if the Experiment Station folks were bo anxious for South Chestnut steet to be opened, they had gone four years with out building a bridge across Big Creek on their land connecting Iheir south side road with Chestest street?"
