The above is a cut of the old Court House at Marshall, and the old Jail and Count Home,
showing also the new urt house, new Jail and the new County Home. This cut is some of the
siflail evjdeeca of the Mtress Madison County has made within the last twelve or fifteen years
The old Court House wSs'a ver simple brick structure and while it served its purpose in its day it
had -become antiquated and was no longer sufficient for the business of the County. It is said that
the cost of building the old Court House which was very smajl is now a part of ' the bonded in
debtedness of Madison Countv. which soows that the DeoDle at the time it was built in the fifties
?were opposed to paying out very much nroney'for public use. The present court house cost about
ithirty twd' thousand dollars; and if built at this time it is said it woiild cost : over one hundred
thousand dollars." ; The old jail was buill of logs and it was the best the people thought they could
at that time. " It was very unsanitary and it was a torture to the prisoner incarcerated The pri
soner soon became palid and you could smell him almost as far as you could see him. The old
County Home was a very poor excuse. ' The hdw county buildings Court House, Jail and Coun
ty Home are all supplied with running water and electric lights and are modern up-to date bnild
ings. .The. Jail is supplied with bath and other toilet conveniences and.the County Home has a
splendid water system and supplied with bath and toilet. - The people of Madiaon feel proud of
these modern structures and evidences of progress. 'V I ' ' ; V '"--'-

Fridav, July 6th. On Friday
night J, k. Baley, Z. V. Fisher
and J. C. Redmon were sworn
into office by the retiring mayor
Dr. W. A. Sams. Because of th
disability of J. H. White, who
was elected mayor for the town
of, Marshall on the first Tuesday
in May 1923, he was not able to
take the oath and to be inducted
nto office. . There was s o m
question among the lawyers as
to whether or not Dr. W. A.
Sams-held over as mayor under
the statute or wdether there was
already a vacancy. v In order to
remove all doubt about the ques
tion Dr. Sams very graciously
offered his resignation to take
effect immediately," and stated
that he did not care to serva
longer and that he had helped to
accomplish - the great purpose
which was the idol of his ambit
ion to establish a gravity water
system for the town of Marshall..
The resignation of Dr. Sams was
accepted, if such resignation'was
necessary, and John Jarrett was
elected to fill the vacancy with
the understanding that he would
give way to Mr. White in th
event that Mr. White became
able. to perform the duties of
mayor for the town of Marshall.
Mr. J. M. Baley, was elected sec
retary and treasurer for the
town and Mr. John A. Hendricks
was re-elected attorney and Lon
Powers was re-elected chief of
poKte for the town of Marshall.
