It's Up to You, Mr. and Mrs. Voter
Let us it flown and have
house question a talk as
Aireudy too much rancor
and the real issues before the people have too often been
lost sight of in the desire of some of the leaders of both
sides to fly at the throats of 'their opponents. But The
Herald has taken the position that this is the people's
fight. It has ever kept this thought before it as the guid
ing light in the controversy
foremost that we sit down
to-heart talk that we may both more clearly understand
each other and the big, question that will be passed upon
Let us. for the sake of argument, look at the ques
tion from this angle: Supposing that the occupancy of
the Main street courthouse meant that the county would
have to pay for it; that it could not recover the $41,000;
that it would absolutely lose
building; in a word that it

$112,000. Bring this right up to yeurself: Supposing
you built a house for a man and he accepted the keys
and insured the building, don t you think that would
constitute an acceptance of it? This very question is
right now before the supreme court and will be passed
upon within the next few days. If the supreme court
says the contract was illegal and the taking of the keys
and the insurance of the building does not constitute ac
ceptance, that will end it. If the decision is the opposite,
that will settle it. In either case the building will be the
property of the county and this will happen long before
Chastain and Peterson take office, but the Hot Springs
advocates, failed to point that fact out
'.They contend that the election of Chastain and
Peterson means the county will have to pay for the Main
street building. We say it means nothing of the kind.
If the contract is illegal and that will be settled before
Chastain and Peterson can take office no one can pay
for. it. We doubt if even the legislature could pass an
act compelling the county to pay. If the contract is legal,
then even Bunnell and Short will have to pay for the
building. Now, if Bunnell and Short had said they would
not -finish the Hot Springs courthouse, in case they had to
pay for the Main street building, there woud be some
j reason in their position, but
mey are going io iinisn me
This just means
V '""":-m i.v.h...u wmihw..
The argument is advanced by Judge Bunnell and
Burrcll Short that they were elected to finish the Hot
Springs courthouse. That it was the will of the people :
That is true. Judge Bunnell was also elected to prevent
the building of the Main street courthouse. He didn't do
it and his failure completely changed conditions as they
existed when he was elected. If he had stopped the
building of the Main street courthouse it would not now
be an issue and hundreds of voters who will vote against
him would be for him if it were simply a question of the
Hot Springs site. The Herald under those conditions
would be as ardently for him as we are opposing him
if the Main street'building had not been built. But it is
there, It is county property, whether we have to pay for
it or not, and we cannot see but that it would be the
height of folly to abandon it and spend hundreds of
thousands of dollars finishing the Hot Springs building.
If Judge Bunnell really wanted to ascertain the will of
the people now, he should have submitted the question
of accepting the Main street building to a direct vote.
This could easily have been done and it would have
stripped the proposition of any side issue's. His failure
to do so does not speak well for his desire to let the
people rule or to follow their
