There was a l t of people in
town last Saturday , doing Xmas
shopping and attending the two
sales which took place in the after
noon. Some said it was the big
gest crowd in town since the 4th
It was a false report that came
to us last week about Matthew
Marshall crawling back into jail
after breaking out. Someone
thought that be would likely want
to get back and the story came to
us tiiat he had crawled back into
jail. Well , if he will stay away
now that he is gone the county
will be saved the expense of prose
cuting him , but that is not good
policy. Suppose that every coun
ty turned its accused loose with
the glad tidings of get out and
stay away , the country would be
full of refugees or crooks that
would depend upon their free
clean record in a new place to
work their game , which would in
turn transfer them to some new
territory as soon as caught in the
act of robbing someone or plying
their graft , and instead of having
law and order we would have law
lessness and disorder. It means a
LICENSE TO ROB OR PLUN
DER as long as you clon'l get
caught or so long as suspicion
doesn't point toward the criminal
and then a transfer to newer lields
of operation. Perhaps too many
times this thought is indulged in
that if we can be free from troub
lesome ones we will try not to
think of how others may suffer
from our neglect as citizens to en
force laws. The escape of , this
principal party to the crime will
probably have a tendency to free
the lesser transgressor ajb the next
term of court. In the interest of
law7 and order we would suggpst
that a diligent search be made for
any escaping prisoner with an of
fer by the county of a suitable re
ward for the apprehension of the
prisoner. If some of our best
stockmen can offer a reward of
$250 for the apprehension of a
transgressor for stealing a calf or
cow from their herd , our county
could offer a similar reward for
the apprehension of an escaped
prisoner in proportion to the crime
charged against him. It is not
for individuals to say whether or
not * a man is .guilty of a crime
charged. It is for our courts to
determine and punish or set free.
Consequently , the breaking from
jiil : is a punishable oU'ense nrrl , in
' this case , if the prisoner is jmilty
! of no other offense he should be
apprehended for breaking jail by
an offer of a suitable re ward. What
is the honor and integrity of our
county worth for an offense of
j this kind ?
