Quot Why Don t some idiot report that Marshall was trying to persuade Collins not to allow the people to elect him judge for a full term next fall ? a a the Experiment of maintaining two democratic papers at Franklin has proved a failure both offices have been consolidated and Johnson county now rejoices in but one democratic paper bearing the compound title of Herald Democrat. One of pm ought to have moved Down Here. Wit i Only four democratic papers in Jackson county there is abundant room for one or two More. E�=.thosc who essay to manipulate the machinery engaged in the manufacture of an Independent ticket Are exceedingly mum. All they have to say in response to the most persistent inquiries is that they have everything ready cocked and primed and that in due season they will have a ticket in the Field which will be supported by the entire Opi Osi Tiou to the nominees of the recent democratic primary election. We Are rather anxious to see a Lively Campaign for it will give the a glorious Opportunity to spread itself in behalf of the men whom it has resolved shall be elected by at least one thousand majority Over the Best that can be trotted out against . new Council. The new Board of trustees consisting of k. A j. Cox Francis m. Miller Chas. W. Ford Joseph England and Louis Heller met on monday evening and organized by electing or. Cox president. D. A. Kochenour was chosen attorney with salary fixed at �10 for the year. A Levy of 35 cents on the $100 and 25 cents on each poll was made for Ordinary expenses together with 5 cents for so Vecial purpose. A dog tax of 50 cents for males and �1 for females was made agreeably with a Law by the legislature two years a of. A committee consisting of d. A.

Frank was elected 3iarslial, he having i received four vote to one cast for Jack Payne. The new trustees a ire starting out very Well Atid will Doti bless administer the affairs of the town with Economy Wisdom and by Kust. I is Plain Liat the complaints of our Farmers As to the growing wheat being badly damaged by rust Are Well founded. On Clay lands especially the crop will be a comparative failure. All in All the wheat crop of the county this year will be very Light under the most hopeful View that can be taken at the present Iuie. On main or Walnut Street of the night of the 2d inst., a Golden Cross. The finder will be suitably rewarded by leaving it at the store of c. Buji xxx or at quot this at your. The people of a quot Raour rejoiced with exceeding great Joy Over the result of the election for City . The manifestations were particularly jubilant Over the truly glorious Victory Yon in the contest for mayor. The latter was a Victory possessing . Daniel on i son the mayor elect is a Man of Sterling moral and political integrity. He entered the contest at the solicitation of scores of the Best citizens of All parties but explicitly stated upon acceding to the import unities of his friends that he had neither the to make personal appeals for support nor a Dollar of Money nor a drop of whisky to give to secure votes. His competitor was or. h. Or Kiokh a Man who is known As one of the shrewdest wire workers in the county one of that class of politicians who regard everything As fair in , and who eagerly Avail of tie Power by Money and whisky to make popularity and secure votes. Green conducted tie Campaign on part with sleepless Energy leaving no Stone unturned that might As much As turn the weight of a Feather in his favor. So Well and systematically had he Laid his wires that he Felt confident of achieving a crowning , while at the same time Many of the most ardent supporters of or. Johnson Felt and Over the Irolli sects. I right will lilt never sometimes prevail and .>0 it was in this contest. Daniel a Johnson elected Ivy 118 majority and considering the formidable efforts made by his , it no wonder that the Joy of the victors burst Forth in enthusiastic of indefinable the it id a right to rejoice for a prouder grander or More righteous Victory was never won in Lackson county. We congratulate the i it eople of Seymour upon tie trim it a which they achieved and crave to blend the satisfaction u hich we experience with their exultation. , honesty and sobriety have for once prevailed and men of All parties who condemn the use of Money and whisky to in Luence and thus control elections have just cause to narrow gauge Ricail Road the people of Brownstown had better be looking in direction than Madison for their Aid to build the narrow gauge Railroad Atid right now i.? As Good a time to do the looking As we will Ever have. The National narrow gauge Railroad association will meet in Cincinnati this month and it is probable that arrangements will be made to Consoli late a line of Nar Row guide railroads to make a connection across the continent. The late act of , authorizing a company to build a narrow gauge rail Road from Washington City across tie continent by the Way of Cincinnati and st. Louis will Likely be taken Adan title of to incorporate the b., Amp m. K. K. Line and put it into Active operation by the association. The line that our contemplated Road is on can be made a Jimart of this great National line if proper Effort is made. The Way to make this pro per Effort is to have it understood by the National association that we Are ready at any time to Cut Loose from Madison and j it our mite into an organization that will be one of the links to the National or trans Continental line. Some of our Best Railroad men Are in favor of this and will Readi j drop Madison and go into it. This project would include Crothersville and a connection with Bedford also. Why not have a meeting and Send delegates to Cincinnati to Rei our interest in this matter. Now is the time to do it j lie now 3 ars Lial.
