KLAMATH FALLS, OREGON,
The Courthouse Question
A commlttoo roprcsontatlvo' of tho business and financial Interests of
Klamath Falls visited Tho Herald this morning with an appeal for un early
disposition of tho Courthouse Question. Their appeal Is not an unusual
ono, nor Is It an Improper ono, For ten or moro years this question has
had a death grip upon Klamath Falls and Klamath county, and whllo
thoro has boon a gradual loosening of tho hold, It bus not been sufficient
to permit pf tho development its blighting Influence has retarded. Every-J
ono knows that tho pcoplo of tho county aro thoroughly tired of It. Thoy
aro tirod of tho delay of bringing It to a flnanl decision. Tho general senti
ment has reached tho point of absoluto Indifference as to whothcr ttio
courthouse occupies tho old elto or tho ono In tho Hot Springs addition,
but thoy aro not Indifferent to a continuation of tho uncertainty.
Wo understand that tho caso has reached n point whoro a hearing before
a roforoo on tho merits of tho caso may be hold about February 8, or at a
later dato If boforo Judge Calkins. Let us hopo that this information Is
correct; that thoro will bo no further delays. Tho people aro crying out
for' a final settlement, that thoy may tho soonur forget tho dlsgraco tho
whojo controversy has brought upon us, und wo would urgo tho attorneys
on both sides to1 listen to .tholr wishes and co-operuto to tho end that quick
action may bo had.
Wo all know that our thrco Courthouses have brought this city Into
ridicule throughout tho nation. Just recently it was used as an argument
agalnBt us In our national capital. It has divided our community, kept
us In constant turmoil, cost tho county hundreds of thousands of dollars,
Is Jeopardizing tho safety of Invaluable records, and Inflicting continual
Inconvenience upon tho officials of tho county and tho pcoplo having busi
ness to transact with them. In addition to thoso paramount arguments
demanding a quick settlement of tho question, Is tho additional one that
it is working an almost irroparablo injury to the business Interests of the
city and county. Tho notation has reached a point where it becomes
mandatory upon tho part of qvcry citizen, irrespective of his personal
feedings o'r Interests, to Join In a movement having for its purpose an early
and final determination of tho Issues

C. M. O'Noill ond Fred Mjjls, while
C. F. Stone nppoarod for tho contrac

coi rt took tho matter under ndvlso
p.ent, but Intimated that regardless
of tho dlclslon on domurrer, the
courthouso litigation would come to

tho court Itself or boforo a referee
appointed to tako testimony in tho
action. In caso a roforoo Is appointed
it is estimated that tho testimony
may bo taken February 8.

been added to tho battery of attor
neys for tho countv, which Includes
In addition J. Dowormnn of Portland,

damago by malicious prosocutlon by

does mean that later it will cost you
moro money. It never pays to bo too
dilatory in matters of this kind.
There nro a good many of our farm
ers who aro now paying soventy-fivo
cents for Grimm alfalfa seed, who
could havo got their supplies for
forty cents had they placed their ord
er s last fall.
Contributions to tho fund have
como In from nearly every section of
he county and to date an amount In
excess of $1000 has been received:
Unfortunately, thus far, from no sec
tion has tho response been unanimous.
To overcome this the committee has
decided to block out each Farm Bur
eau district and to get farmers In
each district, so blocked, to canvas
same with the view of getting all the
land In each district covered, so that
when tho time of the big squirrel
drive comes around tho work In each
district will be efficiently done and
