TALC CORN TAL65 GttJWW By sam&stntJLsseii, GKINHELL.IA. Bancroft Editor Makes Survey of Courthouse Harold Clark, editor of The Bancroft Register, recently made a tour into the basement of the Kossuth courthouse, where old records are now stored. What he found there, and how he feels about the matter of constructfon of a new courthouse for the county will be found here, in a story reprinted from his last week's paper: . Voters, of. Kossulh county turned down; bonds for a . • new.icourthouse,.,-,some- :»iX'--, years ago by a scant margin. There is little doubt in- the minds of any fair-minded citizen of this county but that Kossuth needs • a new courthouse and needs one badly. There is little duobt but that the voters will be called upon to decide the issue at a special election. The editor of this newspaper had the occasion Monday morning to inspect the, basement -of the present building. In all" fairness and in equal frankness—it is ier- ' rible. The custodian of the building and the office holders and their employes do all in their power to keep the records, etc.. so that they can be found with a nimimum of effort. Bill the records of one office may be partly stored in some far away corner of the basement, subject. ed to moisture, dust and mice (if there are any in the building)—and very few of the valuable*-records in the building are safe from fire. In many cases it has become necessary to merely pile record books one on top of the other in stacks that reach the ceiling. This newspaper hopes that when the courfthouse vote is placed before the voters of the county there will be no north Algona, or any other kind of a south, east-west, Algona or anti-fight. Whether you live in North Kossuth, South Kossuth, East or West, you have some stake, whether large or small, in an adequate building, Ip. safely . ~" keep -the" " records -'3f - the county. Lets think it over and lei's be fair on the proposition.
