See no evil, speak no evil: 1881 court case reviewed
Back in 1881, a Polk County of-
ficial figured that if he didn’t have
IN POLK COUNTY
Onalaska Police Department
Case No. 911002
Tuesday night, Oct 2, a retail
business was burglarized in
Onalaska. Entry was made by
prying the dead bolt on the back
door of the building. The un-
known suspects entered the
business and cut off the power at
the breaker box.
After rummaging through the
office and cash register, in-
truders began carrying clothes
from the store to a waiting
vehicle parked on the south end
of Haynes Square. Ninety per-
cent of the clothing inventory,
including women’s and
children's clothes, were taken.
’ Crime Stoppers will pay up to
$1,000 this week for information
leading to the arrest of the per-
sons responsible for this crime.

formation about the burglary,

You do not have to give your
anything to say, nobody would
want to heat him.
In a case in District Court, the
prosecuting attorney was trying to
show that one Coleman Adams and
the woman he was living with had
never been married.
So, they subpoenaed Justice of
the Peace George Nelson to ask
him whether he’d ever performed
such a marriage ceremony, and
they asked him beforehand to
search through his records for such
The day came for the trial and
Judge Nelson was called, but he
was nowhere to be seen. The court
subsequently fined him for con-
tempt of court as a non-appearing
witness. When he faced the court
another day to answer that charge,
the excuse he gave was very clear.
He didn’t have anything to tell
He explained that he had
searched his files and didn’t find
any such marriage ceremony, and
since he didn’t find anything to
report, it made sense to them that
they wouldn’t want him as a wit-
They had to explain to him that
the failure to find a marriage record
was exactly what the prosecution
was looking for.
Oh, well, in that case, Judge Nel-
son offered a second excuse. Being
74 years old, he told them in a for-
mal answer, he was quite deaf and
“he (Nelson) believes that he was
within ear shot of the courthouse
when his name was called but did
not distinguish it from various
other sounds and noises usual at
such time and places.”
His formal answer continued,
‘‘And he further states that even
now he don’t know Coleman
Adams from the first Adam and is
very certain he never joined him to
Eve or any other woman.
“And he further bclievcs...that
while the State of Texas, rich in
miles and millions, would make
him a tributary to her treasury for
the offense of not knowing any-
thing and being not there to tell it
when he heard not the summons, it
would indeed be a hardship that
would take rank as such in any civ-

It is a human trait to tend to fear
the unknown. Many of ua are
plagued by nameless worries over
the uncertainties of the future. In-
deed, It is only prudent to try to
prepare ourselves for any contin-
However, as journalist White
tells us, there is no need to be afraid
of tomorrow. Why should it be any
better or worse than yesterday,
those "good old days" we tend to
recall so fondly? In all probability,
tomorrow will be as delightful as
today - and you must agree that
today is lovely!
