A Urate Charge.
About three weeks ago , Edward
Schwarz tnis-ed a mure mid colt from
his bunch and Is-K'in to Miake inquires
for them. After considerable hunting
the colt was found in a pasture a few
miles northwest of town and it was re
ported that the mare had been seen in
the posNcssion of Frank Zerbst, a lad
of about twenty years of age.
Schwarz got out a wrrrant and placed
it in the hands of feheritr Bartlett and
together they went to the ranch of W.
A. Bmelow on Sheep creek. There the
boy and the horse were found. They
were brought to Harrison and the pris
oner tiikeu tafore Justice Sniuck for
examination. County Attorney Guth
rie apeared for the prosecution and W.
O. Patterson for the defense. By agree
ment the case was continued until Fri
day and the court (ixe I he bond at
three hundred dollars and as the prisoner
was unable to furnish security he was
remanded to jail.
From wh.il cuo be learned the outlook
is pretty good lor the youth making a
trip over the road either to the reform
school or the penitentiary, us he has ad
mitted the taking of the annual. If he
is guilty of the charge and will make
that plea in court il would be the best
for him and also lor the county if a
special term of court can be held and the
case disposed of ins'ead of waiting for
the regular term of court in Novemlwr.
School will begin next Monday.
Hon. Norris Brown, of Keurney,
came on Wednesday to hieak, but a
number having gone from town lo the

Let the Couits Decide.
Superintendent Davis fne:m! to think
that the writer has done him an injus
tice in regard to the certillcates which
have been under discussion for gome
weeks for the reason that I he state
'superintendent tave it as his opinion
that the certillcates are valid. The
writer conlen Is to the contrary and has
for his reasons the law which was quot
ed in the columns, the iction of Mr.
lavi 1HU4, and the opinions of good at
torney, one of whom was so positive
that he expressed himself as willing to
stake his life that the courts would not
sustain the state superintendent, and the
recent decision of the United States su
preme court has been referred to where
in the statement was made that the
duty of a public official was to endeavor
to carry out the provisions of the law,
not to seek ways to avoid the law.
The writer does not believe that the
honest, law-abiding people consider that
any official i.s so high that it is out of
the way to have acts which appear ille
gal or irregular shown up or criticized,
for a public odlcial is not a master but
a servant of the people.
Under tlie circumstances the matter
can be discussed back and forth for an
indefinite time without accomplishing a
thing. In order to have matter deter
mined the writer submits the following
Let Superintendent Davis have a test
case made on the validity of one of the
certillcates in question. Let the case be
submitted to the court on stipulation
agreed to by Mr. Davis and the writer,
that no delays r.eed occur, and a com
plete showing 1m3 made to the court. If
the (inal lecision sustains the action of
Mr. Ixivis the writer will pay the costs
in the case and publicly acknowledge his
error, and if the courts hold that the
contention of the writer was correct
then Mr. i-iavis shall pay the costs and
publicly acknowledge his error and make
such restitution to the teachers as the
finding of the court should direct.
If that proposition is not fair and fur
nishing the most certain way to deter
mine who is right in the matter the
writer is unable to formulate such
