as been defrauded out of its rights The District Attorney informs the that he has a big on his words to that effect In inspecting the dockets of justices of the he finds en- tries made of cases but nothing to the disposition nor the amount of money paid to settle such cases Be- side this the justices are very reluctant to show their dockets Whether it is necessary for a justice's docket to show

the system of freebooting ed by some of our county haa been the theme as well as the commendation of all classes of citizens Business has ed the presence of the writer in different parts of the county tho and the universal topic among the farmers ever he touched was the JOURNAL'S brilliant expose of the sheriff's and justices bonanza than any they've was the way staunch Republicans put it in giving vent to their feelings The farmers are in anything but a ant mood this the prices of all their products being at tho and now to face these gigantic sums rolled up by the cupidity of is more than they can stand As one old granger looks as if all us tax payers would soon The County Fathers have a lons jub on and their constituents will not rest until they have overturned and rooted out every illegal element in this Every official must be brought to a strict and woe be to him who has unjustly charged a penny against the for tho farmers wrath mightily OK KM Party The residence ot J T Wardrobe was

hazards he walked home with a were not especially solicitous to have him do and now he pretends to wonder why all the boys and girls are laughing at him A year ago our astute Village Fathers voted the purchase of fireproof ash re- to be furnished to the business with a view to provide for ness and against fire These were tied as occasion required at the public expense The present scorning the indefensible polity of without utterly ated the and decided every man should cater to his own ash pile Fresh the maker's these receptacles cost from to apiece The present regarding them as dead put them up at public and they were knocked down at prices varying from to Tlie buying of the at the severely the selling of the same seems about I he only thing to be done Woe to the ment that can not see five or ten yean into futurity who would be a local Solon i V Some of the Waukesha justices of the peace allow officers and others allow for vagrants brought before them This discrepancy is caused by a difference of two the re- presenting six and the resenting fonr miles travel It would seem to the tax-payer that a justice must have an elastic conscience to allow even four miles for the distance certainly four miles would be the outside and it appears that an officer would need to by a very circuitous route to squeeze in four miles between the gas house and the jail Progressive at

been most hospitably and delightfully entertained OBITUARY 00 Whether the fact can be proven or it is evident that the county is justly entitled to a larger sum It seems to be a very master for justices to get around the bush the screw seems to be getting or in other justices seem to believe in J the old law is always safe to receive On Nov James Stewart of died at the of seventy-nine years
