There is a case over at Tower City
which would seem to be a knock down argument in favor of the proposed new county scheme. The indiscretion of two young and ardent citizens of the opposite sex who have "loved not wisely but too well
" have made legal proceedings necessary to maintain the dignity of the law. As the town is on the line between Cass and Barnes counties it is uncertain on which side of the line the offense was committed, the question of jurisdiction is one over which the attorney for the prosecution is struggling. The papers are in the hands of the officer for the gay Lothario, but the county surveyor will probably have to be called on to establish the county line and decide which county has jurisdiction.
