WHO IS TO BLAME?
Unnecessary Dr.lay In Closlni Up the
Mlclilftan Trust Co. Case.
Moru limn six months havo elapsed
since the mandate was received from
the supreme court nlllrming the de
cision of tho lower court in the case
of the City vs. The Michigan Trust
Co. and ordering the lots sold. Paul
S. Moon made a settlement with the
city so far as the Moon block was con
cerned, but there are between ISO and
200 town lots included in the judg
ment upon which no action has been
taken and which should have been
.old long ago. Why has the city ad
ministration made no move in the
Many of these lots have been trans
ferred by quit claim deed, and the
parties procuring them stand to lose
when the order of salo'issucs.
Others of these lots have been trans
ferred by tax deed, and their pur
chasers are thereby protected from
But there is a very large percentage
of the lots, many of them of consider
able value, that are still subject to
transfer by tax deed All the lots in
cluded in the judgment are subject to

boino action was taken in this matter.
The. New Court House.
The people of P.lue Hill and Cowles
are particularly bitter against the
proposition for a new court house
not because they do not believe the
county needs one, but because each
has for years nursed hopes that the
county seat might some day be re
moved from Red Cloud and one or the
other of those towns might stand a
chance of securing it.
Last Saturday night a meeting was
held in Cowles, at which it was de
cided that if the people of Red Cloud
want a new court house they must
build it themselves. On their part,
the people of Cowles agree to build a '
substantial court house, provided the j
county seat is moved to their town, j
Itluu Hill puts tip the same kind of a
talk. Why shouldn't they? Thev have
have nothing to lose and everything
to gain and talk is cheap.
The county court house belongs just
as much to tho people of Cowles, Blue
Hill, Rosemont, Itladen, Guide Rock
and Inavale as it does to Red Cloud.
They have just as many cases in
court, as many deeds, mortgages, etc.,
on record, and furnish their share of
attendance at the sessions of court.
Therefore they are as deeply interest
ed in having a safe, substantial build
ing in which to keep the records and
hold court as are the citizens of Red
Cloud. Some day, when there is a big
crowd in attendance like those which
were seen at the Barker trial, the
barn-llko structure which disfigures
tho court house park will collapse, re
sulting in great loss of life. Should
flro once get a start among the rotten
timbers it would burn like tinder, and
the valuable records in the old shack
would be destroyed and they could
never be replaced.
There is no more justice in asking
tho people of Red Cloud to build tho
new court house than there would be
in asking one county to build a prison
in which to confine tho criminals from
tho remainder of tho state.
Wo need a now court house and wo
nro going to have one, and Itluo Hill
and Cowles may as well gel in tho I
band wagon. Tliclr oners to build a
now court house show that thoy know
tho county needs one, and, as neither
of thorn stands a ghost of a show of
gottiug tho county seat, thoy should
'come iu out of tho wet."
