More About The
Judge Ducgan expresses much satis
faction in the prospeot of a new court
house for Webster county. Ills ofllolal
duties during the past year have taken
him to a majority of the counties of
southwestern Nebraska, ami In talking
with the Chief man he says that Web
ster county takes the premium for the
most dilapidated court house. Judge
Dungan does not make this comparison
as a reilectiou on Webster county, but
' urges the fact as an argument iu favor
of a new court house. He urges more
especially1 the need of more adequate
facilities for the comfort of juries iu
their attendance upon the court, great
er safety for county records, nud more
comfortable quarters for the various
county otllues. As the ranking onlclul
in the court house the word of Judge
Dungun 1ms much iuiluetice with the
voters o( the county, and we have his
assurance that he heiutily approves
the movement for a nov bull, lug, leas
ing the plaus and detail of ooustruet
ion to the tax-payer, of the county,
who will bu called upon to pay Hie
bills. He says what we all know to lie
a fact, that the pro-ent building will
fall down or become unlit for use with
in two or three years, aiul that the ex
cellent building now proposed eau be
built as cheaply now as at any time,
and probably for less, and that there

MEW COURT HOUSE
While standing in au automobile on
the streets of Milwaukee, bowing to
the greeting of a large crowd, Hon.
Theodore Roosevelt was shot in the
chest by a fauatic. Latest reports in
dicate that the ex-President will ie
cover. This event is greatly to be de
plored. Regardless of political affilia
tions the sympathy of the American
people Is with Mr. Roosevelt and his
family. However this incident again
demonstrates the weakness of our
American police system. In our much
boasted land of liberty our public men
seem to be in the greatest danger.
Every mau tdiould be allowed to ex
press his convictions on the questions
of the day and every ofiioial should be
allowed to perform the duties of his
office without the fear of possible
harm. It is far better to prevent crime
than to punish arimtuals after crime
is committed. This is the third at
tempt on the lives of prominent per
sons in very reuent years. MoKinlcy
at Buffalo, (layuur at New York aud
Roosevelt at Milwaukee. All three
are instances of inadequate police pro
tection. The real wonder is that these
eveulh ilo not occur oftener Mnco our
public men hui-m to be in danger of
every fanatiu'lii the country.
We earnestly hope for the speedy
recovery of Mr. Roosevelt and trust
that he will soon be us well and vigor
ous as ever.
