Supreme Court to Decide on County Site, 1914

From The Murray County Messenger
Eton, Georgia, December 3, 1914

SUPREME COURT TO SETTLE CASE

The Question Of Whether Chatsworth or
Spring Place Is the County Site Went
Before the Court Tuesday.

Wednesday morning's Constitution carried under the heading of the Supreme Court of Georgia the following little notice of part of the doings in that town on Tuesday.

Argued and submitted–F. E. Vonberg, et al, vs. D. R. Dunn, Commissioner, et al, ; from Murray.

To make the matter a little plainer, it simply means that the case whether Spring Place or Chatsworth is the legal county site of Murray is before the highest court of the state for decision. The case was not brought before the court in exactly that light, but when the question of the new jail is settled, it will decide for all time the legality of the county site question.

It will be remembered that not long ago, an injunction was requested from Judge Fite against the construction of the new jail at Chatsworth. The order was denied by the judge, and the matter was taken before the Supreme Court for decision. The building of the new jail at Chatsworth will depend on the action of the court.

Of course, there is no telling when the decision of the court will be handed down, or what it will be, but the Spring Place people, their friends and attorneys are confident that the verdict will be in their favor. It is supposed that the others feel the verdict will be in their favor, and it will be awaited with much interest.

Whatever the decision of the court, it will settle for all time a question that has practically raised Cain in this county. The Messenger sincerely hopes that when the verdict does come down, the matter will be dropped for evermore.
