Mr. Eimtok:—Fleaso allow me, through the columns of your pa per, to oiler some suggestions to candidates for the next legislature on the subject of appeals. This one tiling is 'now the cause of a heavy tax upon the people—has been, and unless checked by legis lation, will be for nil time to coino and is growing worse. Wo ottco hail a law providing that no appeal should betaken trom a justice’s court, where the amount in controversy was ♦20 or less, but ■ now appeals are taken from any | amount, and our eireuit court docket is full of little frivolous cases, that ought never to have been carried there. Wo want a law to prohibit tak ing appeals from inferior courts where the amount is less than fifty | dollars, lor the reason, that if n | magistrate, together with six of his neighbors, cannot give justice to that amount, they ought to abolish the offles. Then again, if rich was a law, litiguting parties would sure ly exhaust all their means in plac ing their cases properly before the justice, whereas nearly half of them let the case go by defutilt. and take an appeal, again it costs the cottn > ty forty-eight dollars per day to ' furnish juries to try theso little ! cAt«*, whon in fjict llio amount hi I stake will not amount to the at torney’s fees. A ml tliia accumu lated a \ast amount of court busi I ncsa that is really detrimental to ! both parties, the loss of time, the attorney’s fees ami the witness fees soon doubles the ease. Again tho Kail read Company never think 1 of roiniug in Justine Court to set i up a defense, but on tho other I baud, they have the appeal paper j before the Justice some time be foro judgment is rendered, and , many cases not worth moro than I ten dollars. And yon, gentle i reader, are taxed to pay tho cost i of such worthless little eases. Let them bring forward their defense I before the magistrates, if not, let I them abide hie judgment. Down with such, men will be more I neighborly, will not be lawing each 1 other booausc they can. Records of past cases exempli fies every word of thoabove. Now I Judicial Circuits were created in order to dispose of the business in 1 old Circuits. If uv had such a law I we might abolish a few Circuit and save one Judge's salary in e\ery one. Again, about two weeks time would clear the dock et, the people would elect bettor men for* magistrates, and by cut ting off the busineesyou cut of! the expenses and a reduction of taxes will follow. \\> might provide for appeals in cases whero the Magistrates have acted partially, or failed -to give the law correctly,and in such cases let the appellant prepare a statement particularly setting forth the points or fucts wherein be be lieved the'magistrate erred, and sub:: it the same to the Magistrate for In's signature, then forward the bill as prepared, together witli a copy of the judgment, to th« Cir cuit Judge, and if lie thinks the Magistrate erred let him grant the appeal, if not, let him refuse it. If an appeal be granted the Judge will consider flic case wherein the Magistrate erred, and'try it npon that proposition alone, for there is no use tor the Circuit Court to try wlmt the Magistrate may have le gally tried, and undo the work that was lawfully done. For fear of taxing your valuable space, I will close J' i Daisy Dem.. A Comm un(ration. Editor Fk aycse:—LIn tbs local columns of the Dispatch, of the 26 of May appears the following para graph. ‘•The damage suits all went against the town. If the old coun cil h ad to pay for thicr negligence out of their own pockets, no one would be sony. But it is hard to make the City Treasurer}’ suffer for their failures. The moral is, elect good aldermen. Money bags and misers make poor council men 77 Evidently the mill of the editor had about run out when tiiat para graph was written, the supply hav ing been pretty well exhausted in ▼indications of strikes and appoli gics for communists and anarchists, and having lint little ammunition left he fired what little remained into the late city council. Before writing he should hare examined tho record, and learned that only two of the damago suits went against the town, oqo having been dismissed at the cost of the plain tiff. lie ought also to have) inquired into the financial condition of the town at the)timc tho lato'.)council took controlt.^If ho had lie would liavctnuud that it was in debt,and that the payment of the debts ex hausted the funds. If lie had nude inquiry he would also have found that all the ownors of property abbot ting on ths side walks were repeatedly notified to make the nceesary repairs, which , they neglected and refused to do, that the town treasurcry was emp ty and the council could not get the work done without the luouev to pay fer it. i, lie ought to know also that while judgments have gone against ; the town for small sums in two j cases, yet ths owners of property I abutting on side walks where the i injuries ocoured will, in the end have to foot the hills. Perhaps if ; lie had known this he would not ■ have shed so many tears on ac count of ths loss to tho town. : We wonder if he will be sorry when he finds this out? We only dcsirse desir to add that if the present city cxtuucil is re pairing the side walks, (as Itro Ansley in another paragraph says they are) and are pacing tor the same out of the money in the city j Treasury, they are doiug something I that the law does not authorize ( tiioin to no, nines* mey imenu 10 , nii<1 do, make the owner* of the | property abutting on the wide ! walk* pay for the name* Tho law i require* that every owner of prop I erty alinll keep the wide walk in j front of his property in repair, or pay to the town cost ol the same providded the work that'» rrqnii e l to he done on the streets asid alliea hy those subject to road duty is not sufficient to keep the samo in ' repair. 80, tf Bro. Anwley means to look after the interist of the I town, and keep the officers there | of in due hounds, and hold them to anacconnt for their steward ! ship, he ought to inquire into the j means by which the side walks are I being repaired. The former council doubtless err i ed in some respects, but we under take to say f-at the most they did was fully authorized bv the law. The blame for the damage suits should net be heaped upon them, but upon the property holders ft r failing to repair the sidewalks. .MbWPBUS ur TUI- Obb CuVMTL.
