the entire article helm
Burley seems to be'very much
afraid that the camouflage they
expect to blindfold th^ Voters of
Cassia County with witt be s»en
through. Why should fhi" people
of this county give any Credence to
what Burley sees fit to call their
''good faith in preelection prom
ises"? Hhvb they kept this good
faith in the past?
What are the preelection promises?
First.- Burley promises to give to
the county the south -half of the
block on which the city hall stands.
Is this any great gift? Is it suffi
cient? The people of Cassia cpuntv
know, and Burley does not deny
that if the county seat is moved to
Burley, in two or fou* years the
voters will be asked fto pass a
$200,000.00 bond to bui^ a
court house. W ho wants ( a #200,000
court house built on a nieasley half
block? Burley knows the half block
would be given back and a full
b ock or two blocks purchased for
the site. Even though the county
saw fit to keep this half |>loçk, is it
such a gift? Wouldn'
■Vov **alta err «rty^n
Cassia County be
half a block or 160 acre field for
that matter for the county seat,
with the assured fact that in k few
years a $200,000.00 building would
be constructed. ,
Second. Burley offers the free
use of the city building for a term
of five years or longer. Isn't it a
fact that the part of this building
which Burley offers the free use of
is not completed? All there is, is
the four walls of the building, no
petitions, not finished in any way.
it would cost the taxpayers $5,000
or more to put this part of the
building in a condition to hold the
county offices. There is not ade
quate vault space in the Burley
building to hold the county records,
another cost of #10,000.00 to build
vaults. The peopie of Cassia county
are not going to have the records
pertaining to their property where
there can ba any chance of fire. By
the time the tax payers of Cassia
county finish the Burley building
and build these vaults, which would
undoubtly be given to Burley upon
vacating the building, wouldn't they
have paid an exhorbitant rent for
the use of the nail? Any town in
Cassia county will * give the same
proposition. Besides the preseent
council might make this arrange
ment and the council elected next
year could tell the county officers
to move on, for one council has no
right to make contracts of this na
ture for a longer period than their
term of office
pose to appraise and sell the present
county property locatad at Albion.
Seems to me the people of Burley
are assuming a great deal of au
thority to presume that they have
the right to appraise and sell prop
erty belonging to all the people of
Cassia county.
At this time when our govern
ment's life depends upon its man
power and money, and Uncle Sam
is urging every man to giAe to the
utmost of his ability, to the great
causes that sre necessary to carry
on the war. W e read that citi
zens of Burley are voluntarily giv
ing money to wage a county seat
fight, what are theY?
We expect to raise funds to car
rY on the educational work of the
campaign but we mill have to do
it bY an assessment and everY per

The citizens of Burley pro
son called upon to paY to this
fuhd will feel that some boY in
r'rapce who is fighting for him
is being cheated out of a pleasure,
luxury, oi^ tnaYbe aneeessitA.
paYer of this tax feels himself to | key
be a ^lacker to a certain extent, !
but not so much as though he was d
pushing the fight and giving his|
money voluntarily.
The above statement does not
attempt to give one reason why
Albion should retain the county
seat, and every reason given a
gainst removing it to Burley is
false and reacts in Burley's fa
vor. The half-block ot ground
oflered by Burley as a site for
the courthouse is the most de
sirable vacant lot in the city.
While its value does not enter
into the question, it is wortli
more money than any four va
cant blocks in any other town
in the countv, and it is large e
nough for the courthouse and
any other buildings the county
may desire to erect. No one
who is honest with himself will
deny the fact,
courthouse would look well
there, but let us not forget that
two-thirds of the people of the
county would have to he in fa
vor of the bonds before such a
building could be erected. Bur
ley alone could not do it any
mote than the people of Albion
candrond the countv to erect a
courthouse in Albion.
Trua th* HurleY citY hall is not
completed, but contracts will be let
for its completion before the peo
ple vote upon the removal of the
county seat here, and Cassia county
will have the best quarters for its
offices and the. court and the most
; secoté pine* far its records and
prisoners it hai over enjoyed, and
that free of charge for fivo years.
This is guaranteed by the people
of Burley, and that guarantee will
be put in a binding form before
election day, just as the city coun
cil was authorized to turn the half
block of ground over to the city
for the site for the courthouse.
In order to further secure the
county against loss the people of
Burley have offered^ to buv the
shack now used as a courthouse
and auarters for our officers at its
appraised value, if it does not-bring
that at public auction after the
countv seat is removed to Burley.
Burley has raised no slush
fund to carry on a campaign
for the removal ot the county
seat. What little money is
spent will lie more than saveb
to the people of the county ev
ery year by having the county
seat in a convenient and acces
A $200,000.00
sible place. The move is an e
conomical one lor the county to I
make, and should be taken as
war measuie in conserving time
and money spent in unnecessary
travel by our people if for no
other reason.
But the reasons why the coun
ty seat should be moved to
Burley are that Bu-iley is the
centerof trade and the more
accessible point for nine-tenths
of the people of Cassia county .
No one will say that it should
remain permenently iu Albion,
or that it can be moved to any
place other than Burley. The
time is ripe for the move and if it
will icmaim in Albion for an-I
is not made now the county sea 1 1
