with regard to present conditions
of our town and was fearless in
expressing himself as to his atti
tude in relation to future better
ment , and we commend him for
the stand he takes and pledge our
hearty co-operation in bringing
about an improved state of affairs
through the enforcement of law.

this fair Christian land must ever
suffer the sting resulting from this
