LW r VOLUME XIII. ST. JOSEPH, MO., SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 20, 1919 NUMBER 3. v-N t k i f 1 1 linRFS b la Neither Did They Spare the or Its But Raped the Court House .Lawn Under the Spicious Pre text of Doing Something "Artistic" When the old Buchanan county court house burned cnrly one morn ing In 1885 the trees which adorned the court ard were destrojed by tho fierceness of the flames. These trees were the pride of the people ot St. Joseph and for that matter of the county, and one of the first things that the county court did was to or-; Her other trees planted tn the jard to take the place of those destroyed. The Judges did not ccn wait until a new court house was ordered, but let tho contract for the trees first then they built a temple ofJust!co later and It still stands. So much for what tho people of tho city at that time thought of trees as an ornament as well as a protection and now as to something else. When Judge Thomas B. Allen walked up tho Sixth street side of tho court house walk Tuesday he stopped took a long look and then said to a bystander: "I would almost as soon sco a human being cut down as one jf those trees, for I do ,iot believe It would more nearly constltuto a crime. It gives me a pain about the heart to see those beautiful trees destroyed, and I know that other people will think just the same is 1 do that Is .the thinking ones will." JlaKiilflccnt Troon Dostrojcd What caused this outburst of Judge Allen, and what he saw was two of the graceful hard maplo trees which have been for years admired by thou sands, lying prone in the cist court jard, their trunks already ile;)ilei of their limbs and the now verii;-ted loaves scattered all oer the yard. Tho wood butcher with his (rcbhly sharpened axe had done the work. And again on the south 'side of the court house yard right In the direct lino of Judge Forgraves' viow, anoth er handsome hard maple giant wis laid low and Its trunk was entirely lenuded of its branches. Tho wood yutcher had also been there. ' And on the west side lawn lay an other beautiful specimen of the hard maple family, its trunk likewise de nuded of branches and Its leaves scattered oer tho lawn the woo J butcher had also been there and like in the other places he had dono his work well that Is the work that ho was hired to do. Wlij It Was Done Why it was dono this butchery -as explained by the Republican end of tho county court, who ordered the destruction was to beautify the court house aid to make it artistic but If there lives a man or woman who can explain where the destruction of a fine, lualthy, growing hard maple tree a tree that had required nearly forty years to bring It to Its present Btate ot perfection will produce an artistic effect, that person Is sure some camouflage artist. The "artis " tic" will not cover many bald spots through such efforts. Had the trees on the court house lawn been too thick and close together which they were not had they been a bad spec is which they were not had they yfehut out any sunlight or air from the ' temple of justice which they did not had there been one reasonable ex cuse on earth for their destruction which there was not It might be reasonable to destroy them but there was not. ' Every man or woman who goes to tho couit house except the Repub lican end of the county court, for Judge McClanahan voted against the butcher- deprecates Uie butchery and condemns the Idea but the beautiful trees are now down, out, and dead. They round Some Mouny Somehow, and from somewhere, the Republican end bt the county court dug up (713 of the taxpayers' money which had not been spent and de cl?d to do a little .landscape garden ing with It, hiring one of t:ie best firms in the city to follow its orders despite the fact that some of the tenants of the county offices had for months been begging with tears in,St. Joseph natural gtui at the rate of Norton owned the tract from about Eighth and Olive streets and will first thing that they know, for they their eyes to have jpjllttle paint or)9l cents per thousand.

It might be well, for you to take a vacation and fight shy of St. Joseph for the coming ten days when a federal grand jury and a federat court will be In session here, the term beginning Mon day when Judge Van Valkenburgh will charge the federal jury. Judge Van Valkenburgh will chirge the juiy to look out for profiteers and violators of the liquor laws, and It Is expected that there will be a numb'cr of Indictments of that nature. The transgressors who violated the migratory bird law and other game laws will also come In for a share of ithe federal Judge's attention. It is announced that the care against Albert J. August, charged with conspiracy to obstruct the draft law, will not come up at this term. but that of A. M. Lawrence, the Clin ton county farmer who charges his neighbors tried to hang him. Is set for a re-trial. There is quite a heavy docket for tho coming term, and it Is expected that the full time allotted for this session will be consumed. HERE'S A CHANGE Kor Some Knu-rprising Young Widow Who Would Cluuige Her State. The following received by this pa per offers an opportunity for some St. Joseph widow who would change her state and condition. The letter speaks for Itself: "Dear Editor I am dropping you these few lines, though you might be able to help me out. I am a youngi widower and am very lonesome. I would like to get acquainted with some nice young widow or girl about 22 to 26 years o fagc, as I am 30 years old. I have a good home and a good position have no objection to one child, as long as the mother Is good, as I love children, and have none of my own.
