Free Ferry by Wednesday
Provoked nt the dilatory tactics
adopted by the county court iu re
gard to the free ferry, Mayor Couch
made it a point to call on the offi
cials Wednesday afternoon nnd un
burden his mind. The mayor can
talk right to the point, especially so
when liis ire is aroused, nnd thnt he
did so in this instance is evidenced
by the fruit it bore. Commissioner
Iinrt wns delegated to make n visit
to the ferry lauding, which he did
yesterdny iu company with Mr.
Couch. As n result of the visit nud
the spurring of the mnyor, the of-,
ficials have pledged to place the old
boat iu commission not later than
Wednesday of next week.
