FRIDAY, JULT 80, 1906.
About a year ago our town com
missioner! passed au ordinance de
claring it a nuisance for all cattle
one year old or over to run at large
in the town between the hours of
eight o'clock at night aud seven
o'clock in the morning, and mak
ing it the duty of the town con
stable to impound all cattle found
running in the town during such
hours, for which he shall receive
from the owner of said cattle one
dollar each and twenty-five cents
per day for feed and all necessary
For perhaps one or two weeks
after the publication of this ordi
nance you could hear the cattle
owners speaking of shutting up
their cattle at night. But after
this tthey began to see that the
"cow ordinance" was only a bluff,
as some cattle had l>een running at
large all the while, aud iu 110 in
stance had the owner had to pay
the penalty. Today we are In as
bad. or worse fix in regard to.the
cow question than we were when
our sage commissioners saw the
necessity for the making of the or
On the night prior to the writing
of this article, between the hours
of nine and ten o'clock, we took
occasion to stop and count twenty
five head of cattle, within the
requisites of this ordinance, lying
and standing In the crossing of
Main aud Haugliton streets, at the
Hassell House.
An ordinance which is not en
forced Is worse than no ordinance.
We advocate an ordinance taking
the cattle off the streets altogether,
but if we cannot get that let's see
that the one we have is enforced. to see that
the laws are enforced? In this par
ticutar instance it is plainly set out
that it is the duty of the constable.
When he has failed to perform this
duty, then it is up to the mayor to
take the matter up with the com
missioners. Then the commission
ers must either ignore the law they
have made or see that it is en
forced. If these officials will not
enforce this ordinance the people
have a right to demand it done.
The will of the majority of the
people be obeyed

Speaking of courts, the court of
Publicity now seems likely to ac
quit White and find Thaw guilty
of an unprovoked act.
Even if Pennsylvania employees
cannot keep their stock, they re
tained it long enough so that it
will keep them.

the federal officers in North Caro

People who are talking about

In the discussion of campaign
policies and officers there is one
thing that should be giveu very se
rious consideration. Kach town
ship is required to elect three mag
istrates for a term of two years.
Bach town having one thousand
and more inhabitants is entitled to
an additional magistrate for each
one thousand. At tbe elections here
tofore held magistrates have been
elected but some of them failed to
qulify, consequently the couuty
has been totatlly wanting in these
officers, except where some who
have desired such positions, aud
were not chosen by the people,
have applied to the Legislature aud
Governor for appointment.
This is not as it should be. By
such procedure the office has been
brought into disrepute and self re
specting worthy meu have often
hesitated to qualify for such of
fices. For all matters of coutro
versy growing out of contract re
lations the justice of peace has
jurisdiction up to S2OO. If the
amount becomes $2Ol or more, it
is taken to the Superior court,
where the matter is determined by
judge aud jury. The magistrate,!
is then, judge of a court next toj
the Superior court. How essen
tial it ts then to have a justice of
the peace of intelligence and abil
ity to understand the laws, and
with character and Courage suffici
ent to execute his judgment.
With such justices the litigants
are satisfied when their rights haye |
been passed upon, and the costs of I
small matters does not exceed the
amount involved. With weak men
as justices it is only a formal step
to a higher court. That is only a
{tribute paid to weakness and
prejudice. As a result people often
suffer their rights to go unsettled
rather than take chances with ap
peals and ruinous costs.
The criminal jurisdiction is sim
ilar, and there have been cases
whete j>eople have been prosecuted
through the nialace of the justice
and who determines liis judgment
when the warrant is issued. The
defendant, iu such cases, never has
a hearing; he is denied his consti
tutional right.
This is a serious subject and we
hope it will receive the proper con
sideratiou. Now, what is the
remedy? We are not inclined to
dispose of the matter with saying I
that a change is necessary, but we
are going to offer this suggestion:
Thar at the primaries, and before,
inquiries be made of the best cit
izetis as to whether they will quali
fy and serve before they are nouit- j
natcd. Aftet the man has been
decided upon, make him say he
will serve or your time is wasted i
aud you are liable to have a mail
as justice of the peace that you |
wouldn't vote for.
A sweet breath adds to the joys
[of a kiss. You wouldn't want to
kiss your wife, mother or sweet
heart with a bad breath. You can't
have a sweet breath without a
healthy stomach. You can't have
a healthy stomach without perfect
digestion. There is only one rem
edy that digests w hat you eat and
makes the breath as sweet as a
rose—and that remedy is KODOL
FOR DYSPEPSIA. It is a relief'
for sour stomach, palpitation of
the heart, and other ailments aris
ing from disorder of the stomach
and digestion. Take a little Kodol
after your meals and see what it
will do for you. Sold by S. R.
