The bull frog organ at Dalbu
croaks about the people of Inde
pendence digging up three or foin
hundred names of persons ncvei
heard of in Polk county, and thu
defeating the building of a court
house. How does the "sympa
thizer" know that they cannot be
"dug up" again, with a few hun
dred on top, either on remonstniu
ces or at a vote, and that is what
hurts. It wants to date the busi
ness back so that all new comers ol
whom presumably Independence
has the most connot vote and let
that vote decide tho question.
What a miserable craw ler he is.
What a fine idea of liberty. II
may be a pleasant theme for the
effects of the flood at Independence
to be magnified by the merciless
tryant; but trying to impose tax
ation without representation is dan
gerous, lesit is dangerous.
The whole community insist that
their officers shall bunt thieves,
and every citizen is ready to assist
in the arrest of the person who has
robbed him, and to appear as a wit
ness against him. But we do not
find ourselves equally willing' to
aid the officers to bring to punish
ment those who are corrupting our
youth and desecrating our Sabbath
and wrecking our homes. Laws
against these evils fail to enforce
ment unless they are backed by
an organization of those who be
lieve in the laws and are willing to
sacrifice something to secure their
enforcement. It is a common thing
in the United State for those per
sons who see a great wrong to;seek
to right it by securing additional
legislation. But a remedy more
frequently lies unused in the exist
ing law than most people suppose.
While the temperance people
have been contending for more law
to regulate, or some statute to
abolish, the liquor traffic, the law
and order leagues have undertaken
to do away with all the evils of
that traffic wnicti are proniwteu by
the existing laws, and they have
succeeded in many hundred cities
and towns beyond their expect
ation, v . .

roiK county viwrrrr is growing
laiger and larger each week and is
causing Us vtctom a great deal ol
irritation and uneasiness. The
mote h;us grown so much that it
has become "Independent, the
gpuit commercial center of Polk
county." Wo are sorry to see our
observing friend su Turing such tor
tare from so slight a strain on his
optic nerve. Why, we have gazed
upon this grand and 'sublime scene
for many years, and have also
pointed out tho name to many of
our friends all of whom were unani
mous in their opinion that "Inde
pendence was the commercial cen
ter of Polk county." Although
the view was dazzling, still it did
not cause the slightest uneas
iness in the direction of theoot ic
Therefore, Mr. Olmrver, there
must be some constitutional weak
ness in that eye of yours which it;
would be well to look after, but
you know tho commandment; "If
thy eye offend thee, pluck it out.''
By this time you fully realize thai
you can't pluck Independence out,
that is a foregone conclusion, there
fore, Mr. Ohnereer, let tho eye slide.
If tho high, dry and salubrious
climate of tho little town of Dallas
is so healthful as to cause a scarcity
of medical skill, just waltz yourself
over to tho "Commercial center of
Polk county" and see how quickly
our skillful physicians will subdue
that "unruly member" of yours j
and tone up the system generally.
