THE NEW COURT HOUSE
THE architects not having fin
ished the drawings no action
was taken by the County Com
missioners Monday in regard to
the proposed new Court House.
However, we hear it being talk
ed that th?. building should not
cost to exceed 3:10,000.00. We
do net know what effect this
talk nay have upon the members
of the board, but if it has any,
we implore- you, gentleman, to
atop and think. Unless we can
have something creditable let us
not build at all. Tyrrell County
tried a cheap house and one of
their leading attorneys has said
tht we now have a better house
than theirs, if theirs is brick.
Then we must have tvv houses
cither built together or separat
ely and our county pride should
demand what we can be proud
of and not humiliated by. Our
county is growing, and we should
build more for the future than
for the present, and in our opin
ion based upon the Court houses
in other counties that we have
visited, and their cost, we are
frank, to sav that we do not be
lieve $'0,000.00 will build what
our people will be satisfied with.
Even eight years ago when this
question was before the Legisla
ture, Mr.C. W. Snell. then our
Representative, made speech be
fore the commit tee-and told them
that 830,000.00 was josufftcent
and would only bean opening
wedge if they attempted It, and
labor and material has advanc
ed at least 50 per cent since then
Of course we know our officers
being continually harassed by
people of di If ereht opinions con
cerning such an outlay of capital,
many of whom have no real' con
ception of the cost of such build
ings, but taking biased heresay
for facts and continually preach
ing it to others, and they, our
Commissioners) wishing only to
served the best interest of their
people, hardly know what to do.
And we would suggest this, that
they take a few days off and go
in a body to several different
counties that have recently erect
ed new court houses, learn all
about the conveniences, perman
ency, cost, etc-, and then come
home, pay themselves off for
their time, expenses, & etc., and
let the contract in accord with
the experience they have gained
by the investigation. They will
then at least have the conspla.
tjon, of knowing that thev have
done all in their power to serve
their county, and have not spent
its money on guess work,
whether it sounds big or little.
