Jones of Columbus. Indiana, The case was venued from this county to Jasper and the special Judge appointed by the governor. Lamb entered a plea of insanity, his attorneys claiming that he was not in possession of his faculties when be did -the shooting. He went tor the Rick-rich home and demanded to know the whereabouts of his wife and when he did not find out be went to the automobile in which he had driven to the Rick-rich home and got a revolver and went back into the house and shot the woman to death, so the story of the murder goes.

The matter has been pretty thoroughly gone over by the taxpayers and a large majority of them are willing to continue to use the court house we airead/ have for a few years more and being willing thus to do have signed a re-OQonstrance against the issuance of the bonds. Only a few men in and about Petersburg are pushing the matter of building a court bouse now. They are using as an excuáe that it is now or never; that a majority of the people of the county are opposed to it and that never again will they be able to elect two members of the board of county commissioners who will be willing to liuild a *hew court bouse two milee from the north line of the county and twenty two miles from the south edge. But the people are not clamoring for a new court house and are not aAiing that the county seat be moved to a central location. They do not want to spend the money for a new court houae when the court business has gone down to about one-fourth its former volume and when there are no roads over the county that ean be traveled. The people are opposed to a new court houso and it is the people’s money proposed and not that of the f e},-# the erection of Many men havo petition tm a falae vmmmn» lasiis WiMlioM-' l|h:
