Court House Situation
H Inava'e, Nebr,,
,i March 17th, 1014.
l will write you a few lines as to
how we think iu regard to the court
house proposition. I believo it Is the
best for the taxpayers of tho county.
I don't think any reasonable person
would say that wo dou't need a court
house I hoar some saying thai it is
Red Cloud that wants the court house.
I live fifteen miles away from the court
bouse, aud I need my portion of it
just as much as Red Cloud doos. I
would not want tho people of Red
Cloud to sit the old trap that wo 'have
for a court house on my farm, to keep
tho county records in and to transact
'the county busluess iu.
And I don't believo that there is any
tax payer iu the county that would
want the old trap that we have for a
court house uinhls property for them
to transact the county business in.
I think that the piopositloti that tho
county commissioners propose Is the
best and the most economical way that
We cau secure to have a court house.
The commissioners sntliey will build
aud equip a court house for $00,000,
aud 1 believe titer cau tlo it, according
to the plans or proposition that thoy
If the old trap that we have should
burn down it would cost, tho county

If we bond tho couuty for 87-5,000 or
8100,000 we are llablo to havo to pay
