WHO REAPS THE BENEFIT?
Will the Present Generation Alone Be
Benefited by n New Court House?
livery time a proposition to vote
bonds is submitted to the people, there
is always urged the objection that we
use piling up tlebt.s for our posterity
Well, why shouldn't posterity bear
a share of the burden of building rail
roads, school houses, court houses and
other public institutions?
Who reaped the benefits from the
lailroad bonds, voted thirty years ago?
Not the men who voted the bonds, but
their children ami grandchiltlicn, who
now own the property the value of
which has doubled and trebled since
the atlventof the railroad. Why should
n't they help pay?
The Mime argument holds good on
the court house proposition. Future
generations will icap the benelits of
the protection so wisely provided by
the people ttf today, as we are leaping
the harvest sown a generation or two
ago. We work ami stint ourselves in
order that we may luy up somcthing
for our children, ami it is no more
than simple justice that they should
help pay for the benelits they receive

introduced to llurke X. Campbell, real
estate dealers of Imperial, who sold
him a piece of land, on which Mr.
