Never before in its history has Jacksonville been better able to serve as
the county seat. Practically everyone has access to an auto and Jacksonville is
on a paved highway which connects with all portions of the county by hard
surfaced roads. Yet Medford wants the taxpayers to vote to move the court
house to that city and thereby add very heavily to your financial burdens.
Ever since the dawn of history the strongs have oppressed and crushed
the weak. This is the attitude which Medford is assuming in their demands
for the county seat. Jacksonville is a small city and Medford is large. They
want to take from Jacksonville to add to their already greater portion.
they want the taxpayers of this county to foot the bills. Are you going to do
it friends? Are you going to dig down deep into your pockets and aid in this
imperialistic move on the part of Medford?
Think long and concentratively
upon this question. We want you to be fair with yourself and fair with Jack*
When you do, you will see the folly of a move we are sure.
If you do, be sure and vote to retain the county seat at Jacksonville. Such
a vote will mean the saving of many dollars to you.
