Devolson Weaver ought to kick himself and shoot Monger for writing up such a babyish whine as appeared in last weeks Anamosa Wea ver furnished the skeleton and Monger clothed the thing with brinyeyed rhetoric in a stylo and at a length that he Intended should be touch Weavers pocket We are really sorry that Weaver has made himself the laughing stock of the county in this IT CANT BE RUBBED the first page of this issue is an article from the Monticello reciting facts ot record concerning some crooked transac tions by Devolson democratic candidate for The fact that stands out most and cannot be dis is that disclosed by the agree ment signed bv Weaver and East By this stipulation it was expressly covenanted in case certain condi tions were not the notes given by Easterly were to be null and With out wailing for Easterly to test the patent purchased from he Weaver disposed of the pocketed the and coolly allowed erly to whistle for bis rather for the materialization of the judgment enter ed in favor of This stands against Weaver on the county records nn undisputed and just debt to who was deliberately confldenc ed by Weaver after the latter had entered into an explicit and binding in the faithful and honorable observ ance of as every fairminded person will the notes should have been cancelled or returned to Easter Dishonesty and trickery are indelibly stamped upon this

Jackson for anil caused a quit claim deed to be executed to by Mott and It was expressely agreed at the time by Weaver that if Kelsall could not obtain peaceable possession of the that would return the Weaver knew perfectly well that by the statute of limitations his tax title was null and and that he could confer no title upon Kel Ball demanded possession of Sue consulted her atto Remley and was advised of her and so refused to give Kelsall then consulted Sheeau and found that the deed of Mott and wile was not worth the paper it wast written He therefore demanded of Weaver the but that gentleman flatly refused to pay it Weaver has doubtless used lus money to defray his campaign This is the sort ot a man that Pat Washington and Battles hoisted upou the cratic convention as a candidate for and they are now trying to bull doze the people into voting for The whole crowd will be buried as they ought to next Dennis of Castle has contracted with Booth of for a fine Columbia

certified copy of it At the time of executing this agreement it will be remembered that Weavers parents ex ecuted to him a deed tor the undivided half of 160 acres of land in Linn the consideration
