Title: A New Court House
File Attachment:
Attachment Type:

That a new court is needed in Warren County is self-evident to every man in the county, who is at all acquainted with the capacity and durability of the present one. Not only is the present court room far behind the present times in appearance and beauty of structure, but it is too small to accomodate the good people of the good old county of Warren; and from the spreading and partial giving way of its walls it has become really unsage. During the progress of the Clem-Beckett Trial, which has just terminated, the capacity of the house was wholly inadequate to the occasion. And indeed, upon all important occasions it fails to afford seating room for those who necessarily attend court. This state of things should be changed. Our county is as good and wealthy, perhaps as any of the same population, and beyond a doubt, no dissatisfaction would be created if the commissioners were to take immediate steps for the building of another. The interests of our county demands this of them. The little additional tax would be imposed upon tax payers of the county, would scarcely be felt by them, while upon the other hand, the building of a new and commodious, (but not expensive) house would tend more than any other one thing just now, to the additional credit of the county, and the establishment of permanent good feeling in all sections thereof. We press this matter upon the attention of the people, and especially the commissioners of Warren County.
