Wo believe they expect to engine in the purchase of grain and produce of every description. COURT HOUSE MATTERS. We went to press last week on the day the commissioners had appointed to have representatives of each of the townships meet them and Judge McBride to confer as to a new courthouse for Noble county, and hence could give none of the proceedings, or the result of such conference. We now propose to review the matter in question and the causes that have led up to the present agitation of the subject. The present courthouse was built nearly a quarter of a century ago, at a time when Noble county was nothing like the wealthy county it is to-day. At that time n.ine of the adjoining counties had much better buildings than the one we now have. We then had no place at all sufficient to conduct the business of the county, as the old frame courthouse had just been burned, and the offices were located in buildings in town entirely unsafe for the public records. The building of a courthouse was an imperative necessity, and that immediately. Hence the commissioners built such a building as would answer the then present needs of the county, at a small expense never dreaming, doubtless, that they were building for a halt century or more. It was to supply pressing needs that they built then, and we do not believe that there is a candid man in the county to-day, who, if left to his own good judgment, uniuflj need by outside pressure, would decide that the building which wsa erected nearly twenty-five years ago is sufficient for the business of the county and the safe preservation of the records. The causes for the present agitation of the question are not of recent ori-gen. The unsafe condition of the records has been a matter of talk among those who know the condition of the coifrthouse, for years. We came to the county nearly ten years ago, and we know that it was then a matter as much talked of as now. While all felt that the safety of the records hung upon a very slender thread, no steps were taken to bring the matter before the board of commissioners for their action, and while a jail and a home for the poor were being provided, no board felt' like assuming the additional responsibility of the erection of a new courthouse. The county jail was completed nearly ten years ago, since which time the people have not been called upon for means to erect additional buildings, and, as a matter of fact, as is shown by an article elsewhere in this issue, the county would be free from debt to-day if the bonds ($10,000) were presented for payment. The charge has been made that Albion, alone, was clamoring for a new courthouse. Tliis charge is unfounded, to put it as mildly as possible. At the January term of court the grand jury, composed of as good men as there are in the county, men, to, who have no interest whatever in the prosperity of Albion, but rather the reverse, after a careful examination of the offices, decided that the records were unsafe and recommended a new building in their report to the judge. It has beed intimated that they were subjected to undue influences, bût this charge is refuted by Mr. Copeland, one of the number, in a card elsewhere. Acting upon this grand jury report, the board also placed upon record at their March term, an order reciting the same state of facts—that the records were unsafe &c.—and then went beyond the requirements of the law, but in the spirit of accommodation we presume—issued their invitations to those who have been characterized as "visiting statesmen" to meet with them and the judge in consultation. Let us contrast the action taken by the citizens cf Albion in this matter, at this stage, with that of the citizens ot Kendallville. Albion did absolutely nothing to influence the action of any one ot these "statesmen" in the matter, although she was fully aware what her neighbors were doing in that direction, believing that it would show a selfish spirit to do so. What did her good neighbors at Kendallville do? Well, the "visiting statesmen" *know, as do many others who were not so honored If our neighbors are perfectly well satiiiied with the course they took in a matter that concerns the interests of the people, we sha'.l not complain. We are pleased to know that bu\; few of those men who were called here éxpressed themselves in tavor of spending money (which must neceasanly ex tend into the thousands) in patching up the present edifice, but in view of the supposed debt that was hanging over the county, many^ of them proposed deferring the building for the present. The county is not in debt beyond its present means of payment, and had this been understood at the time, two-thirds of these "statesman" would have favored building, taking their statements as a basis to form our opinion. Knowing that when men all consider the records unsafe, and that the supposed indebtedness of the county was the reason g^ven by a majority of them for delay, how can the board do otherwise than to go forward in the work; aware, as they are, that the county could, to-day, pay off all the bonds were they presented for payment. We cannot close this article without laying before our readers Judge McBride's remarks on that occasion as we find them reported in the Standard of last week, as follows: It is a matter of presumption on my part to advise. Am not a taxpayer. It i« a matter that concerns the people of this county only. No dictation on my pare. Have no right here only by courtesy. Think the pto-pie are standing in their own light in not caring better for the records. There has always been great danger of the records. Let a tire break out in the night, and in one hour's time the records would be gone. Speak only as an individual. The court room is good enough, as good as any in this judicial district, but this is the only good thing. Hiive felt it a shame to put a jury in the jury room. Think Noble county will make a'mistake in building an expensive court house. $75,00i) is enough to put in a court house. There is no to-morrow. Commissioners siKmId do what they think is best. Do not favor putting off until to-morrow what should be done today There is no to-ra(irrow. Had thought cutting this room in two and putting in a gallery and jury room, etc., but if a new house is to be built soon would not favor that now. Need judge's room, jury room, consultation room, grand jury room and witness room. Justices. CONSTABI,: —Mrs. John Hetrick, of Jefferson township, formerly of Albion, died one day last week and was buried on Thursday. Her husband was the man who recovered some $300 or $400 from the town of Albion for injuries received on Hazel street some years ago. —We were pleased to meet Mr. D. R. Hoover, publisher of the daily and w-eekly News, of Huntington, Indiana, on our streets during the past week. He was attending the trial of the State vs. Winebrenner as a witness, we believe.

I had a dozen boils on different parts of ray body, and suffered many aches and pains, while the least exertion gave me great fatigue. I took three bottles of Dr. Guysott's Yellow Dock and Sarsaparilla and am completely cured. At night I enjoy refreshing, dreamless sluml^r, and all day I feel energetic and strong." —Judge McBride got tired of the eternal slamming of the courtroom doors during the proceedings in court, and ordered prosecutor Peterson to see that they were fixed according to law. Commissioner Kimmell was brought in and his attention called to the matter on Thursday. Pending repairs upon the door, D. E. A. Spencer was installed as doorkeeper. ''Deak" would evidently prefer being a dweller in the tents of wickedness than a doorkeeper in the house of the L—awyers. —The Kendallville Netoi permits its correspondent at Rome City to say that the commissioners ask for an appropriation of $150,000 for a new court house. It was just such unwarranted statements as these, industriously circulated, that caused about all the opposition that was developed toward the building of a new temple of justice for the safe preservation of the records. The commissioners had decided on no sum, and nobody here thought a building sbonld be erected costing more than $75,000 or $100,000. Money to Loan. From $100 .to $500 or $600 to loan on from <me to four months time on g<'od security. Address . Lock BoiC No. 37, Rev. G. W.

E, conference would be held at Peru on April 12 It convenes on April 2. —The M. E. choir will entertain the social at the residence of Fielding Prickett on Friday evening. Music and refreshments. Everybody invited. —E. G. Abi^augh has the contract for carrying ,the\raail south from Albion to Chdrubus^ We believe he thinks of moving ft) Wolf Lake. —A new trial has been granted by the DeKalb circuit court in the ejectment case of Weaver vs. Kessler, taken to DeKalb county from Noble on change of venue. —Clergymen, lawyers and all those of sedentary habits who suffer from nervous prostration and loss of appetite should try Nichols Bark And Iron.

Alvord, of Eiuiira, New York, son of Samuel E. Alvord, our iormer county clerk, is visiting his friends in town, and will probably remain here during the summer. Ed. has grown almost beyond the recognition of his friends. —We believe that no clue has yet been had as to the whereabouts of the escaped inmates of the Cplumbia City jail. Kuhns, who got away from the Albion jail is yet at large. Later.--Butler, the wife murderer, has beeu captured. —In reply to a recent article in the Standard, Mr. Copeland, of Elkhart township, one of the grand jury that condemned the court house, has published the tollowing: "I notice an article in the Kendallville Standard which casts an odious reflection on the late grand jury that condemned the court house. The writer infers that the jury were bulldozed. I beg leave to diffir with the writer, and would state that there was no bulldozing about it. Every member of that jury acted according to his solemn convictions, and we did no more than what had been done by the people more than once. J. R. COPKLAND." Albion, lad. —Of the Warsaw courthouse the Goshen Democrat says that "the taxpayers are not whining about the cost of it. They feel proud to hear the people bragging on it, and are not going to grumble all their lives at the little pittance they pay each year to cancel the debt " This is the way Kosciusko county taxpayers feel about their courthouse, which cost ;veU up toward $200,-000. Noble county is about as rich as Kosciusko county, and yet there has been an eff<frt made to convince the people that it would almost bankrupt (he county to build a $75,000 or $100,-000 courthouse here. On second thought we feel at>sared these taxpayers will change their view in jr^ard to the oiat- tf ter. ;
