The Paulding Republican this week publishes that part Yor trieder a report that shows a duplication Bills by r. D. Webster. They amount to $397.86. And still the news and Democrat keep up the howl about that a a scoundrels Geo. W. Rutledge duplicating Bonds. The report shows that Webster duplicated 28 Bills in other words that he received for the same Bills twice. The crooked Republican county commissioners Wood county have been tried found guilty and sentenced to forfeit their offices a 8100 Fine each and the Cost the Democrat. It is unfortunate that these men did not reside in Defiance county. If they had been members the democratic gang they would not even have been indicted. But then Woods is a Republican county and republicans Are not in the business covering up corruption. If a Sand sucker could be run Down into the news and Democrat it would never raise a single Grain truth because it is not in . Well Boss you had your mud sucker Rutledge stuck into honest menus characters Here a Short time ago. The sucker has just vomited at Kenton. When will the other stench pot explode a news and Democrat. Why gentlemen you were so stuck Rutledge a report that you run extracts Eulogi Stic a a gang candidates from it All during the Campaign 1893. Why do you malign this a a scoundrels now we think the other stench pot will explode when web coughs up that $2,000 shortage in Paulding county. To the Maumee. River River swiftly gliding to join the lakes etherial Blue pause while i upon thy margin sing this Idle song to you. Other names Are Sung by poets. Sung in lands let beyond the sea but no name to me is dearer than the Indian name Maumee Here i watched thy sparkling Waters when my race life began Here i listened to thy murmurs when thy song was one glad refrain. Here i Learned life a variations and thou Sang the different parts. Always varying tile music to the Melody my heart. River while i now am listening i can hear that joyous song that you Sang to me in childhood when my life was one glad song now again i hear thee singing songs love so soft and Low that in a sure they Are the echoes the songs Sang Long ago. A thy Low and gentle murmurs Are too plaintive now for gladness. Thy song has changed i hear again that Mournful ode sadness. Thus thou Sang and still Are singing songs in All the different keys. May my heart be taught to gather Only thy Sweet melodies. River thou Art far too generous giving All these songs so free i can Only ask thee humbly take this Idle song from me. Madge 1. Ice. Ii e pud i at is Geol g k a . Deindoerfer accepted Rutledge s words Praise and rejoices at his downfall. Geo. W. Rutledge sex auditor Hardin county Ohio who in 1893 was sent Here by the auditor state for the purpose furnishing Republican Campaign matter at the expense the tax payers is at present in trouble up to his ears himself. It has been discovered at least that is what the a Cincinnati enquirer says that Rutledge like the Bond swindler Lewis is guilty duplicating county Bonds. As a Rule we wish no one any bad Luck but we Are glad to see this Man fall and would like to see some certain other even More impudent persons do the Herald so far As we know John a. Diva Doerfer was the Only one who tried to make any political capital out the visit Geo. W. Rutledge to this City in sept. 1893. Deindoerfer was a candidate for re election As auditor and to further his chances the following extract from Rutledge a report was run in the news and Democrat and German Herold during the Campaign. Republican evidence. I found . John a. Deindoerfer. Tile auditor to be a mail ability and an obliging gentleman. He has had two years experience in that office and his books Are neatly and accurately kept. My limited time was devoted sufficiently to Lead me to believe his work scrupulously Correct. No tone person with whom i talked and i Onver sed with Many the subject accused . Barney the treasurer with any had intentions. On the contrary All spoke highly concerning his character. I desire to express my High appreciation the courteous treatment i received at his hands As Well As at the hands the county auditor and his efficient Deputy. In fact my gratitude is due to the commissioners the probate judge the City clerk and All others who served me in arriving at my conclusions. George w. Rutledge Republican is auditor and state examiner auditor Aud treasurer s offices it seems strange that Deindoerfer should have used this a a scoundrels so words in 1893 to help secure his election and now turn around and denounce him since he is Down. That is rank ingratitude. Despite what Rutledge did for Deindoerfer however an Ali Wise Providence allowed the editor the Herold to be removed from office before he died importance and for that the tax payers have reasons to give thanks. The Paulding county papers have much to say about the recent report . Vortriede who was appointed by auditor state Poe upon the petition fifty More taxpayers asking for an examination the treasurers and auditors offices. Or. Vortriede in his report finds that there was a shortage in the Treasury Jan. 21, 1895, amounting to $14,961.61, duplicated Bills and overcharges by sex auditor Webster amounting to $2,085.54, and overcharges by auditor Ridenour amounting to $379 61. The democratic managers Lay their troubles to Republican managers and politicians who they claim were the instigators in petitioning the auditor state for an examination said offices but it transpires that the investigation was petitioned for by Paulding county Pomona Grange no. 77, a certified copy the petition and statement from the master the Grange being published in the Paulding Republican which says a we do not publish this petition for the purpose shirking shifting any responsibility. On the contrary we heartily endorse the action the Grange and shall stand by the report until the end. We believe in the accuracy the report we believe that the taxpayers Paulding county have been robbed a Large sum Money and shall continue to believe so until the courts otherwise Republican caucuses.

It is now said that it is the Hon. . Baker and not the Hon. John w. Winn that has set his Bear trap for the democratic nomination for representative in this county. If Henry gets the nomination he can depend John Anderson to pull him through. The information is Given out that John w. Childs was removed from the pension office at Columbus because he had expressed himself As being unfriendly to senator Calvin s Brice. It was the report when John sought to be made Post master in this City that one the strongest claims set Forth by him was the service he had rendered Brice while chairman the democratic committee in this county. If John did speak in uncomplimentary terms Brice while holding office he was equally As unwise As Dein Doerfer when he forced re solutions condemning Brice through the last democratic convention in this county. Brice is the Man in the democratic Saddle in Ohio. There Are Only a few the shallower democratic vessels that do not recognize that fact. It is said that now that Deindoerfer Mains it a1 have almost wrecked the democratic party in Defiance county that they will in the near future enter the lecture Field and give Short talks ine Briary. As they Are men unbounded stomachs not designed by cold water architects the processes by which they built up the magnificent Chicken domes that Grace their persons will be infinite interest. The democrats in Defiance county May condemn Brice in conventions but when he wants a delegation from this county he simply comes in and takes it. The present delegation is made up the Ablest democratic politicians in the county and course they Well know that they cannot afford to stand out against Brice. When Geo. W. Rutledge had completed his report after examining the county Treasury in this county in september �?T93 he requested an employee the Republican express office to go to his Friend auditor Deindoerfer and draw the warrant for his services. That was done and the order was mailed to him. It is the presumption that he got his Money. None it came to the Republican express office any its employees. Rutledge was not sent Here to investigate the auditors office. He had no business in the auditors office Only to get the balances showing what Therp ought to be in the county Treasury. He did not examine Tho books and consequently was not in a position to say what their condition was although he claimed they were accurate Etc. When c. A. Vortriede examined the auditors office he found the books full errors and that gave the lie direct to what Rutledge had said them. The burning question before the people now is How much did it Cost Deindoerfer and the a a gang to have Rutledge embrace in his report fulsome Praise Deindoerfer and books that he had not examined Georges conscience was evidently inebriated but How much did it Cost that a the Point. Otto Crawfis the sex treasurer Putnam county died in the Hospital at the Ohio Penitentiary sunday. He had been sent up for embezzlement. Like w. O. Barney this county Crawfis was not Able to Cope with the democratic a a gang looters who infested the Putnam county court House and he got into trouble. He was sentenced to the Penitentiary and it is said died a broken heart. He was in fact like w. O. Barney the victim a ruthless a gang a inebriated by thousands dollars stolen from the tax payers. The news and Democrat have discovered that John Slough has been asked to accept the democratic nomination for representative but they done to know what the a a gang has to do with the offer. Certainly not. They never know what the a a gang is doing. Squire Hockman we Are told was one the democrats who called upon . Slough. He told him we Are informed that if he would accept the prize was Bis a. When the Squire makes an author Tive offer that kind it is Safe to predict As h. P. Miller used to put it a that there is a Hen furthermore Squire Hockman would not make such an offer if he had not been authorized to do so and if we mistake not the a a gang is still in to session the machinery the democratic party. But there is another Point connected with the question noted above. The news and Democrat says a representative those papers waited upon . Slough Etc. So he did. Three four maybe More times. He wanted . Slough to write a card stating that the Republican express had a a lied words to that effect. This representative who is suspected having a big round Abdomen the fruits a too free use water run through malt Rye Corn not Only asked for but begged that the card be written but . Slough would not accede to the request. Then this representative went Back to his paper and made . Slough say that there was not a word truth in what the Republican express had said in its article the representative question saturday evening. John Slough is an honest Man and he is a truthful Man and stated emphatically this morning to hi3 friends that he did not say this paper had lied As quoted by the nows and Democrat monday evening. That is the Way it goes. These organs that have dedicated themselves to the Mission defending the a a gang and covering up corruption would not hesitated a moment at such a Small thing As misrepresenting John Slough. They cannot help it because they Are built that Way if it is True that Geo. W. Rutlege a conscience was inebriated by a a gang self when he visited this City in 1893, and thus reported Dei doer fers books Correct without examining them it was a trick worthy the just think what trouble there would have been if Georgie had delved Down into those books and found that Deiny had not paid his taxes. Wow. R. D. Webster the news and Democrat left for Paulding monday that $2,000 shortage is about As hard to Down As the great unknown who wrestled with Jacob at the Well. The express companies now offer a Reward $0,000 for the apprehension the men who held up the Lake Shore train near Wauseon last week. The secret is out that two Large sacks Money that were not in the through Safe were captured by the robbers. The Reward offered shows that the loss the express companies must have been very heavy for $10,000 is in itself a very comfortable sum. The rotund editor the news and Democrat in the absence the editor who is charged with duplicating Bills in the auditors office in Paulding which charge has never been denied is having a great Deal trouble Over Geol w. Rutledge the Kenton county Bond duplicator. When Georgie was Here in 1893 the a a gang used extracts from his report to help pull through a a gang candidates but the taxpayers seem to understand that Georges conscience had been inebriated with a a gang self when he swore that Deindoerfer a books were Correct without first making an examination and consequently refused to get under the dead fall. If web will up his shortage and the news and Democrat take a few turkish Baths they May be Happy yet. The Republican editors Ohio have decided to Call Gen.
