Manchuli and Dal jiinor western frontier points had fallen WILL CERRO GQRDO COUNTY HEED THE JUDGES WARNING The four judges of this judicial district have performed a distinct service to CeiTO Gordo countys residents by calling attention in understandable language and figures to the hazard to human life and the risk to invaluable records which attach to a continued use of the present courthouse Destruction of the building which is not fireproof smokeproof or waterproof with all its records would entail an item of six million dollars in litigation to clear and establish titles to real property Collapse of the building which each day becomes more a possibility by reason of the disin tegration of materials used in its construc tion would mean the inevitable loss of five deaths or perhaps a hundred Every examination of the building by qual ified authorities has resulted in one unsafe Four men whose Hfework it is to weigh evidence and bring in a have united in urging upon Cerro Gordo county the folly connected with suffering this life and property peril to continue WHAT GOOD BUSINESSMAN OR FARMER WOULD PROCRASTINATE IN THE FACE OF SUCH A CONDITION The GlobeGazette would urge Cerro Gordo county those who have it in their power to bring matters of this kind to the publics peruse again this illuminating statement by the four judges Note the obvious fairness inherent in this con cluding plea We are not attempting to suggest whether the county should build a new courthouse or make the present court house fireproof What course should be pursued is a matter to be determined by the people of the county guided by archi tects and expert builders We arc merely calling attention to the urgent necessity of some action to make the county records safe and to make a safe place for the hold ing of court and the transaction of county business leaving the methods to bo worked out under proper supervision of the proper authorities There is no denying that this was an un usual possibly an unprecedented course on the part of the four judges It is important that this be understood for it brings home the more forcibly an extreme urgency in the case Ex cept that their own lives and that of jurors and court attaches arc in constant peril these men on the bench might not have a justifiable in terest in the matter But in the face of this hazard to themselves and those about them as well as to the court records which constitute their very life history as well as that of their predecessors the anxiety they feel and express should be accepted as a warning to the county which CANNOT BE IGNORED r Circus elephant to for murder You see be executed there are noi criminallawyer News A former county auditor once agreed that for a consideration he could put on a pair of hobnailed shoes and kick his way out of any safe in the courthouse in fif teen minutes The wager was not accepted for the reason that those who are familiar with the situation knew the contract could be fulfilled Persons who arc skeptical of the serious ness of the problem should be fair enough to make a check on the claims set forth by the four judges with respect to the dangerous con dition of the building Both our business judg jnent and our regard for life and limb have been challenged IT WILL HE A SAD COMMENTARY ON OUR COUNTY IF WE STAND IDLY BY WHILE A MORE THAN ONCE TO US IN ITS VELOPS
