S2 Newspaper Article: "Baker's Corner Precinct, etc." Noblesville Ledger, Friday 9 Oct 1874, page 1. Acc000897/Doc0780.pdf

Extract: The Independent Attempts, from a communication signed "Jackson Township," to create the impression that J. R. Gray had taken it upon himself to secure the establishment of a precinct at Baker's Corner, in Adams township, at the request of the Foulke family. This precinct was established by the commissioners at their last session upon the petition of thirty citizens in the immediate vicinity of the place. They are old men, many of them, and good citizens; and what is more, many of them are Democrats, Reformers, and Anti-Secrets. The petitioners working in the matter recommended the appointment of John B. Foulke as Inspector. Mr. Gray and Mr. Hall were both opposed to the establishment of the precinct, offering as a reason that two precincts in a township that size was certainly enough, and an unnecessary expense was incurred by making another. Mr. Gray took it upon himself to notify such of the citizens of Adams township as he could find upon the streets, and asked them to come up and oppose it. Some of whom did so. But the Board finding no special opposition from the township, and through a desire to accommodate the petitioners, established the precinct. And if anything, it is against the interest of the Republican party.
Mr. Gray has repeatedly said that no lawyer should be permitted to extortion off of the county as Dave Moss attempts to do every time he gets a chance. That the tendency to employ lawyers in criminal cases at such enormous figures, as has been practiced in our courts, is wrong, and ought to be abandoned. That when an attorney is appointed to attend to criminal cases, a just compensation only should be allowed by the courts, and not such fees as private parties might pay. Judge Craven appointed Moss to attend to the Foulke  case [Amasa Foulke, ID0097] and after the trial he referred the further prosecution to the commissioners. The Board tried to employ Moss to continue before they spoke to any one else. And they considered his fee exorbitant and could get no concessions form him; they then employed Judge Garver & Losey for less than half the amount Moss demanded. They considered Garver & Losey competent, and did not propose to allow further extortion upon the treasury. Of course, the Independent is grieved that its corps o' editors could not get another grab.
