100 YEARS AGO THIS MONTH
July 6, 1914
The City Council passed and ordinance regulating the use of buildings. The reason was that several strangers were sleeping in stables and sheds. It made it a misdemeanor for any person to dwell or sleep in a structure any part of which was used for domestic animals. Two days later, Thomas T. Justis filed a suit, claiming that it was against the state constitution and would be a waste of money to advertise it. On the 11th, Common Pleas Judge Cushing agreed. Justis’ lawyers said the way it was written, the ordinance would stop anyone from having a dog, cat or a canary in his home, but would not prevent any wild animal from being housed there.
