Allow me to say a few words In an
swer to an Item puibUlafheid in your pa
per of April 4,regiardl,ng the cost bill
In ttfhe case of flhe etaite vs. Chaa. Wll
llard, as being, one of ithe many un
necessary cases forced upon the coun
ty yearly, as the whole affair proved to
be a ipotty quarrett. In the first place
the oomiplalnit was sent in by me, and
not by E. M. Grimes, as stated. I
never had a petty quarrel .nor any
kind of a quarrel with WI'Mard, neith
er do I Intend to have. I do not
think I should 'be made to suffer or
bear 'hds abuses for any trouble he
and Grimes may have had In years
pant. Must we sit still and say noth
ing while our lives are being threaten
ed, abusive language hurled ait us, and
rifles flourished while attending to our
own affairs. Thds case was first re
noyance of having him steal from us
eon'tinually? This case was flrt re
ferred to the district attorney, and
then left wMh the Juetllce of the peace,
and told if there was not enough to
have him bound over not to do any
in lus about It, as Grimes Is a tax
payer and Wllllard Is not, and did
not wish to put the county to any ex
pense. Your paper also stated that
the case should have been settled here,
1 am aware of that now, as It would
be better for all iparties concerned.
The counlty will always have such
case as long as they are dismissed
from the court S3 this one was. I .
