Some times you get i Spur ged and say a what s the you feel that Way when these business men and other leaders who raise so much fuss about things in general when the heat is on and then turn cold and forget All about it a few Days later. You wonder if it is Worth your time to make people mad jump on evils that you know Are evident to everybody try to get them remedied and then see the rest of the leave you Flat. A newspapers purpose is to build constructive it and not tear Down. A newspaper should expose evils and sore spots whenever the facts Back them up. An editor gels that spirit in his blood and he can to stand four Flushing graft or Legal blackmail. If he did then h could retire live on a Fine country estate and watch the world go by. You believe it but we could have made quite a hit of a Side Money in our Short career by a leaving certain stg we be had plenty of offers. We be had panty of threats too and still we butt our brains against the Wall and today we a re a Baolu to that spot and Kay a a what a the two years age has county experienced an Upolu car As the a damage a Uit r was concerns d. Several Hundred Well known business Nen and Farmers sign cd petitions not to shirk jury if Ever called. The cd of turned Over of court officials. The judg s of the court have been picking a Ood jury com missioners and they have been picking Good men to serve. Yet when some of the business men and others who really Are needed on the juries Are caled they offer excuses. They Back off. They Foi it those pledges made to serve if Call a. They Are Back in their Olu Lut. Oily a newspaper editor remember ii and those . And ouachita county is slowly a getting Back inti the damage suit class and will soon be called Quot another Clark Public opinion stopped that Type of cases once but ii. The last few weeks we be had Sev eral favourable a it. Diets in personal injury suits . Corporations were hit and our Chita juries Din the hitting.

However it came wry near being serious As the by non team came Withnall we ask now and All we Evcic asked is fairness. Just damage suits Hurt no one. We believe and believe so firmly in it that we Are willing to a ack our belief that a poor a Gro or a big corporation should have the same kind of hearing in any court. All the demagogic speeches in the world Sway our minds. A if a Nero appears before the a court and he is innocent or if he is entitled to damages give him the Benefit of that verdict. If i business or corporation which pays taxes Many men and women and is a credit to a county or Community is defendant in a suit then give that defendant a fair trial. Ii that corporation wilfully or negligently harms anyone then dam pages up to a fair amount should be awarded. But if that corporation does not do this wilfully or negligently but is living up to and abiding by the Law then done to Quot sock it a just Bei use it is a corporation jurors who serve in our courts Are for. Their time and Troy ble. The county pays the Bill. The county gets Money to pay the jury fees from taxes assessed to corporation s and individuals lot of time perhaps the same Thomas Shaddi.
