And it's well invited, every one of From The Madison Times of June 16th "Petitions are being circulated over Monroe county and will be presented to the County Court at the regular August Term asking that an election be ordered for the purpose of voting bonds for a new court house. This question has been staved off from one cause or another until it has reached a point where it is imperative that we take hold of it and settle it as any progressive and prosperous com munity should, by building a suit able and commodious structure in which may be housed our valuable records and documents, ine pre sent building is a mere wreck and any fair minded citizen will so de cide after an examination. At our tion will meet with very little op position. Most citizens realize the value of these public improve ments, aside from their practical use, as an advertisement of our progressive spirit and up-to-dated- ness, and when you take into con sideration the wealth represented, the one hundred thousand dollars asked for with twenty years to pay it, it is not an extravagant proposi tion. There is doubtless some little prejudice existing, but we need a new building and it must have a location. Paris is most centrally located, and while a new court house would look nice it would not bring one dollar to them, and seri ously, they need some recompense for having been burdened with the present assessed valuation, only present old eye sore as long as they eight cents on the hundred would pay a one hundred thousand dollar bond issue in twenty years and should our assessed value increase in the next twenty years as it has in the past, six cents on the hund red would be ample This is a matter in which every citizen is vitally interested and now is the time to settle it We need the building, we are able to have it, and from a general ; discussion heard so far we believe the proposi- a stranger with pride. We have, a County Court peculiarly fitted to carry out such a project, and if the way the straws are blowing is any indication of the direction from which the wind comes, they are soon going to have this to do. Put away your little hammers, your knockers, and come on up to your seat in the band wagon. From The Memphis Democrat. A petition has been circulated in Monroe County for the County court to order an election to vote bonds for the building of a court hourt house. The amount of bond asked in the petition is one hund red thousand dollars, and the Paris Appeal is taking the sensible view that the county, wealthy as it is, needs a modern, safe receptacle for its valuable records. Monroe is one ot the richest counties in the State, and she can well afford to spend the amount . , . .i ueaiiiiiHieu m we yeuuuu iui iuia raris nas recently spent and nUrpose. The bonds for the Scot land county court house will soon have been all paid.
