RECORDS BUCK STTEMPTTO CREATE
10 OED JAY PANIC. IS CHARGE
WESTVILLE, Aug. 1.—District
Judge John H. Pitehford h:is Issued
a writ of mandamus, compelling the
county officials of Delaware count)
to immediately place the valuable
records of the county in a place of
safekeeping. This decree means that
the records must be taken to the
two story, fireproof, concrete court
house at New Jay that was built two
yearn ago to be used as a court house.
The records were never moved there,
however, an armed mob having pre-
vented officials from taking such ac-
tion. This "mob" surrounded the
old frame court house at Old Jay
and thereby almost precipitated a
pitched battle. Later this structure
burned and about half of the records
of the county were destroyed.
Judge Pitehford could stand if no
longer and yesterday he issued the
writ of mandamus, making it com-
pulsory upon the county officials to
take the records to the fireproof
building at New Jay. Thin means
that after next Tuesday New Jay will
be the official sea, of Delaware coun-
Judge Pitehford is being commend-
ed on all sides for his fearless stand
in the matter.
