I he W hites creek correspondent of tin* \\ ayne News is getting after the County Court tor not repairing the public road on bandy river. The Court should not defer action in this matter. The road is needed and needed badly. The County Court is contemplat ing two new bridges in the county —so states the Wayne News. One of the bridges is to be built o\er the Left Fork of Twelve Pole at the mouth of Brush creek and the other over Twelve Bole at or near Shoals. This paper is and always has been in favor of public improvements and if these bridges are needed (and we are sure the one at Shoals is needed, but we are not acquainted with the needs of the traveling public at the other site) they should be built. We desire to return thanks to the Boyd County (Ky.) Fair Associa tion for a complimentary ticket to the races which will take place atCat lettsburg July 26th, 27th and 28th. There will be three races each day and all Wayne county people who like to witness good racing should not fail to attend. J. I). Williams is President of the Boyd County hair Association and John B.

The Comity Court of this county has decided to build a new jail at W ay no and will meet in special session oil the 14th day of August to adopt plana and specification*, receive bids and let to contract tin* building of a new prison lor the county. There i* no doubt but that the county needs a new jail, but we bad hoped that steps would be made to remove the- county seat from W ayne to either Ceredo or Kcnova before actiou was taken toward building a new prison structure. It seems, however, that those who would receive the greatest benchi on account of the iocation of the county seat here lake no interest in the matter. A meeting was held some time ago composed of cili/.ens of the two towns And a committee appointed, but if the committee ever did anything we have failed to hear of it. We understand Hon. Job. S. Mil ler offers a free site for the oourt house south of his handsome resi - dence in Kenova, which is an ideal spot for a court house and would be agreeable to all fair-minded citizens of both towns. Of course there are always some chronic kickers when any public improvement is mention ed—some people who always object to anything that anyone else might propose—but such never ainouut «o much and in this case their opinion or influence would be of little con sequence. The location proposed by Mr. Miller is in the corporation of Kenova and Kenova would have the name and honor of being the county seat, if the people of tin*! county should vole to accept the site and buiid the court house there, but while this is the, ca*e we know of no one in Ceredo who would op pose the removal of the county seat on that account. Personally we do not care where the site is selected, just so it is between the mouth of 1 welve Pole ami mouth of I»io Sandy on the Ohio river. We feel : it a vote on the removal of the county seat could be taken now and \ the people without cost to ihe tax payers will donate a suitable site in either Ceredo or Kenova for the county buildings anil build a coir t house as good as the one now at Wayne, that rpore than three-fifths of the voters of the county would register their votes in favor of the removal. Will the citizens of the twin towns continue to sleep and let this golden opportunity to secure the county scat, and more business and prosperity come to them, pass?
