time by applying to attorney for It will bo observed that Pinkerton alludes in these re eeipts to execution now in my That was in 1873 and the shows no execution returned ip to the present although the aw requires tlie sheriff to make re urn of an execution to the Ulerk of Jourts within seventy days aftei with an account of hi jroccedings and receiptsof monies btained written Six years lave elapsed and no execution has jeen returned in this nor is there the scratch of a pen on the re cord book where it should to show that any money has ever been by The private account boook of Birge shows a credit of received on this but it evident enough that Coggswell have never received anything or nobody has their receipt and il vas by their direction that the exe cution of July 2nd was issued and sale for the whole amount of interest nnd costs was Pinkerton was sailed upon last Tuesday for an ex ilanation of his proceedings he at irst declared that no execution prior to that of July had ever 3ii But his receipts show execution lands in i had paid over to Clarke the noney receipted for to and that Clarke had used suoh money to satisfy another Jut unfortunately for this theory 10 other judgement against liunisey and in favor of Coggswell wais ever obtained or appears on court And it also ap pears that Clarke was hot em ployed on either side of the case in It is not necessary that we should give our conclusions in this No person of ordinary intelligence can fail to understand the full meaning of the facts we here Nor do we ask our renders to accent the truth of this publication without undeniable Oup references are to the records in theoffice of the Clerk of to Pinker tons receipts now in possession of Hawkins and to the advertisement published in the papers were in his He then said that There is no second judgment of record against Rumsey and in favor of consequently tho above receipt must referred to the iudgment described In an swer to inquiries the following letter was lately received from thn son of Franklin Putnam has this busi ness in charge Hawkins our favor nf the lit was received 1 dont know what slmpc the lien is in or just what the chances of Us collection I have had nn oiler for il What will yon give for I understand it is in a fair way to be Yours Editors Republican For tho benefit of thoso who think that Sheriff Pinkerton ought to lie I desire to submit the following facts to show that he has outgrown his usefulness in this county and is too expensive a You all remembef that in Septem 1875 two horses wero stolen from Brown of Urown went to Jack of course and told him what had happened and advanced to be used in catching tho thief or Jack and Brown start ed after the runaways and just ovei in the edge of Hancock county found that one of tho thieves and both horses had been Jack took the thief and Brown took his horses and came They were gone one night and Brown paid all including two livery teams from Two saddles and two bridles wero found with the worth at least all of which Jack kept and of the saddles to Hugh Waterhouse and the other to soiue other Jack also pro sented a bill of lo the Board of Supervisors at 1870 for his fees in catching thu thief and taking him before a jus The thief waved an examina tion and no witnesses were summon ed other services Brown paid over twentyfive dollars of expenses in this matter beside the in cash pairl Pinker This shows that Jack received double pay for going ten miles east of Wesley and bringing back to Al gona a thief that some one else had receiving fully for less than two days work and fifty miles No do you think Jack ever offered AlexanderBrnwii one dollar of that money back not a dollar to this Brown will verify every fact above sot and if anybody doubts this lot him call on Is this tbe kind of man the farmers of Kossuth want for a sheriff the next two The Hunt brought down some samples of apples last week from the Duchess of
