Democrat And Standard, The (Newspaper) - June 24, 1902, Coshocton, Ohio Coshocton Ohio tuesday june 24, Igoa. Facts Mono twi claim that the bulletin boys Are no Good glorious achievements recited showing that we could not keep House without them. Roscoe. June is. You not attach undue importance to the bulletin boys and rot Only giving them to Neces gory space but too much credit for being of some account. We think they Are no Good. No feed. Here is another critic that is away off evidently not know messes. Bahm exand Smiley very Well. Or is prejudiced against them. An inventory of the wondrous things that have been undertaken and accomplished by these trained metropolitan journalists since they came the Coshocton. Detailed with simple words in the most concise Way and set in Small Type would fill More than a Page of this paper. And Many of the plans and Noble ambitions for the Elevation and amelioration of the condition of their fellow men. Which seethe in the brains of messes Bahmer and Smiley have not yet been printed or pro claimed to the Public. These would fill a Large Book of 449 pages. Two or three weeks ago we suggested la very Brief Way some of the desirable things that have come to Coshocton. Through their Able fearless Noble eff ofes to improve the morale of our City by dressing Down divers and sundry bad citizens flaunt ing the details of the Beebe trial and Flash lighting and search lighting every Nook and Corner where wrong doing was suspected to be lurking. It a great would have left anybody else but a highly trained and strenuous new York journalist weak across the Small of the Back but it never daunted weakened or cooled the ardor of these champions of re Andleman redemption. We will be More specific. First great accomplishment by or. Bahmer coming Here was his fierce denunciation and consequent annihilation of the Chicago Grain gamblers his scathing articles made the Mem Bers of boards of Trade and chamber of Commerce Hunt their holes or free the City. It has not been proven Here that so much As a Bushel of wheat has j been bought or sold by dealers in Grain margin in the City of Chicago within the last two years. It has been claimed that when the former Grain dealers of Chicago learn that or Bahmer is even to pass through that City in a Pullman car. Every Mother s son of them instantly becomes invisible and so remain until the train can ring this strenuous journalist late of new York is Twenty five Miles beyond the City limits. Is a Man. Not Over 150 pounds that can do All this Lone handed of no account or lacking in influence we now come close Home and note Only a few of the blessed results of having messes. Bahmer and Smiley living among us. The bulletin had not been established Here More than four weeks until the Argus eyed editor Dis covered that j. F. Meek one of our most prominent citizens was a pol Troon a shyster a sneak a villain a liar and a Gutter snipe people Liv ing on same Street with Meek had not found these things out and his True character might never have been revealed had it not been for the expose made by or. Bahmer. After the Bull Etin gave this bad citizen a Good dressing Down. Or. Meek corrected his principles and habits and has since been admitted to Good society the reformation was Complete and nothing is now alleged against him. Tally one for the metropolitan trained editor or. Bahmer had scarcely finished the Job of straightening up or. Meek when bad citizens began to develop on every hand. The editor took off his coat and applied himself with vigor to unearthing scoundrels and disreputable citizens who had for years palmed themselves off on the Community As men of credit and Good character. He found that Hon. J. W. Cassingham attorney w. A. Hime Baugh auditor Lamberson Charles f. Gosser. R. M. Temple. Or. R. C. Edwards postmaster Mccoy. Mayor As to make it unsafe for them to be j at Large in the Community. Few per sons Here knew or even suspected the villainous character and conduct of these men until they were exposed by the bulletin but Good results immediately followed. These conspirators against Law. Order and Best Community interests immediately took warning. They did not want to be sent Over the Road to Columbus or compelled to move out of the City and so commenced the work of self reformation. Most of them since have be come passably Good citizens and their conduct and standing improve with each passing month. Is this not an accomplishment in bettering Public and private morals and business methods that rebounds to the glory of the Bull Etin to Vav the reformation of these men put the Stren Rosity of messes. Bahmer and Smiley to a severe test but they were equal to the emergency. Many Long credit Marks for the at this Point i this laudable work for the ment of Coshocton was not fully completed before the bulletin boys Dis covered that the Rev. Ebersole Pas Tor of the Baptist Church was a fool a Ninny a mount Bank a scamp and a scoundrel of the first magnitude. Thev soon corrected his imperfections and Bis former Good standing in the Community has been re established. Tally again for Bahmer and Smiley. All the county officers with one exception were found by the Argus eved journalists late of new York to be disreputable schemers and heart less robbers. The one not accused gave the bulletin 811.70 Worth of official advertising which secured him immunity from attack. The other officials became alarmed As soon As Bahmer and Smiley got after them and stopped stealing this saved the county 8000.000.000. Tally again to the credit of the bulletin boys. The illimitable Domain of politics is where messes Bahmer and Smiley Are Star performers. Herein they have accomplished wonders. They denounce factions claim to be outside of All factions but have established two or More of the most virile viru Lent and vicious that Ever cursed and disrupted a political . Thev have evolved a condition in local politics that makes it next to impossible for a Republican to we pronounce pointed paragraphs which briefly and tersely Tell the Story of local happenings together with items of general interest for Hast readers. The examination of applicants for positions As teachers in the City schools will be held next monday. June 30th new potatoes Are being retailed by Coshocton grocers at 40 cents per Peck. The yield is promising since the recent generous Rains. I new series volume i. No. 49 country Homes taking on added charms each year. Rural life becoming desirable and enjoyable with modern conveniences. The matinee driving club has changed the time for their regular racing meets from thursday after Noons to Friday afternoons. Coshocton merchants had an unusually Busy Day saturday. From morning until late in the evening the stores were crowded with purchasers. It subscriptions Are being Aken for the publication of a new City directory of Coshocton. To be issued by the r. L. Polk publishing com Pany. A a a a Farmer from the Chili neighbor Hood in the City Friday reported a Field of wheat Iii Shock in that locality the Grain fully Ripe plump and of Fine Quality. The driving club had some inter Esting races at the fair grounds thurs after july 1st there xviii be at least seven free Rural mail delivery routes wholly or partly in Coshocton county and As the months and years go by others will be established. A Little later will come electric railway hue.-, connecting perhaps All the villages and closely settled communities with the county seat. The isolation of the farm Home i fast disappearing. The closer weaving of the web of transportation facilities by the continual construction of steam and electric roads of Tele graph and Telephone lines and the Ever extending postal service is rapid la bringing every Farmer s Home with in Quick Low Cost and easy touch with the world. The Farmer May read the epitome of the world s doings in his daily paper almost As quickly As an Urban citizen and much More Thor roughly. Because there less to tract his attention when his hour Day evening trotting and interest exhibitions of Speed in pacing Are growing in the weather last week was not very satisfactory for making Clover Hay ret a number of Fields were harvested. This week Clover Rush matters if sunshiny. Hay makers will weather remains members of a the Coshocton Hose Cassingham. J. Man Timmons. J. Rose Hon. J. Sex Council c. Adams county treasurer Williams and about a score of other professional and Busi Ness men Here were the toughest kind of dishonest disreputable Given to All sorts of nefarious diabolical plots plans to swindle people and so essentially bad at the this accomplishment a great and glorious benefaction. Tally Here for they found it to be their duty to annihilate Annm Ber of prominent men in the Republican party of this coun of them Lusty Tough Fellows to Down. They sought to strengthen their party by disparaging Tabo oing and Reading out of it such men As Gen. E l. Lybarger of Spring Moun Tain. Capt. E. Z. Hays of Warsaw. Commissioner Funk of Jefferson. Cal Vin g. Simmons of Tiverton. Esquire Culbertson of Oxford. Wilber f. Park of White eyes George w. Cooper of Washington. D. R. Culbertson of la Fayette. S. A. Stowe of Oxford. John w7. Stanton of Clark. Or. R. C. Edwards of Lafayette and dealing out trip Hammer notices to men of the part standing and political activity of i j Baker. J. J. Rose. Seth Sny Der. Messes. Temple. Meek and others. While these men have Jeen annihilate de a few times by the bulletin boys they did not stay dead and showed up in a mass convention in City Hall Here a Short time ago. And helped to Deal a most distressing solar plexus blow to Bahmer and Smiley. This was Dis courteous treatment to the talented new yorkers and was As mean As it was unexpected. There is neither sense nor reason in a dead Republican coming to life again and making trouble. We condemn it in emphatic terms. A dead politician ought to stay dead. However it May be that the bulletin doses of reprimand and censure so corrected the wickedness of these men As to make them aver age republicans again and rejuvenated the annihilated crowd. There is nothing More reprehensible or harder to Down than a mixed crowd of bad Republican politicians. In the wider Field of state and National politics messes. Bahmer and Smiley make themselves Felt. The reprimand the bulletin handed out to senator Foraker at the time of the re appointment of Mccoy As Post master was a stunning blow to that High f unction Arv. Our information is that he has lost flesh rapidly Ever since and much concern about his physical and mental condition is Felt by his physicians and family. Now these Are Only a few of the important and Beneficent things the bulletin boys have accomplished. We could fill columns citing other acts and accomplishments showing their strenuous Ness and invincibility. Against such a record of glorious achievements How can our Roscoe critic Harbor for an instant the thought that the bulletin boys Are in efficient or no de for Reading comes. The growth of Public improvements is rapidly creating one great Ity. Covering the National do main. Of which the states Are but wards and the cities but under the conditions the populations of cities will be distributed Over increasingly wide areas. When Rural Homes have City advantages More Homes will stay in the country. These things augur Well for the fut ure. Pleasant and prosperous Rural Homes and better purer living will thereby be fostered and More firmly established. In a drive out country roads which personals.
