Inasmuch as Judge Taylor's court is limited to the eleventh judicial circuit, tire decision of the supreme court will not atfect us. Benton County is now a part of thotv.-lftk judicial circuit. Commenting on the position -taken by Judge Taylor, the"'-Peters-bnrgh'Enteirise says: "J udge John Myi'pylor stumped tho State during 'the fast campaign preaching the gospel of reform and calling on Democracy to hew to tho line and let theehips- regard less.
