E. Reeves, who last week re- tired as sheriff of this county, writes un open letter to the people of th«- county calling upon them to in operate with th«* new sheriff, J. W. Connell, Mr. Reeves' letter is as follows: Hal Appreciation “I want to express to the people of Washington county my appre ciation for their tolerance through my four years as sheriff, just ended, and to Mr. Connell, the new sheriff, my sympathy. Ill' dutie ar* BOt all pleasant, and 1 sincerely hope h<- will receive the support and co operation, which he is entitled to. Without that co-operation laws can not be enforced and soon there are murmuring» of officers neglecting their duty, when in truth it is the luck of assistance along the way and a desire to criticize rather than as- sist. “We have laws enacted by the people that the people themselves give their stump of approval, yet disapprove of their officers for ob- '«•rvaiice to their sworn duty in try ing to enforce tho-«* laws, quite evident that there is wrong with the law or wrong with the people. “Speed the time when we wake to the situation und think, talk ami act th«' way wr vote. Then we will be too busy backing up our officers for doing those things they have sworn to do, to lend much time to criticism. "Gi t behind your officers and give them th«' assistance they are entitled to and there will be little occasion to criticize."
