Last year the commit Adonera Bent their report to a paper in the wee end of the county for publication. That of course was to Purlah the Republican and express for its fierce denunciation a of the actions of the Board. Some other printing the Board did not even legalize by publishing in two newspapers a the Law Maya it Hull do but a that was such a common occurrence with the commissioners it la hardly necessary to mention to it. Lion about of that it can be proven. As the Etory goes he was asked to not Only give figures but urged to sell his office being informed that if he did not another daily paper would be started. He asked who wanted to buy and was informed that it was the management of the Defiance demo. Frat. The reason Given was a i under stand it the it their business had run Down Aud that Thi a must do some thing to protein themselves and that if he did not sell they would Start a daily themselves and then Devil take Tho Hind most one. Well so lira cd has not sold out yet and the Rumor is now that Defiance will have another Dally paper. It my be running even before this letter goes to press it May in trim As stated that a loss of business has made the management of the Democrat uneasy. If it has loft business it has no one to blame but its self. Rut following out the theory of a Oonsa racy it looks to me As of the purpose was to crush Lehrack out because he did not become the willing tool of those gentlemen hades Hent on smashing Tho Republican and express info Smithereens by taking the commissioners printing away from it.

We Are Young yet and still growing. We mean our town South Erton. Becca. Now during the last Campaign the commissioners Learned for Tho first time that a jaw passed last april demands that they shall give their report to two newspapers of opposite politics at the Bounty seat. That was a stunner to Tho commissioners. That they could no longer lug that report Over the county As a cat would lug her Kittens was a Bowel Winder and they have been figuring Ever since How they could punish the wicked Republican and express by keeping their report away from it Many plans were submitted and considered but there seemed to be Only one Way open to them and that was to Start a Republican paper. It might be Bald that to Start a r publican newspaper was the last resort to illustrate More fully what i mean let me explain. In casting their eyes Over the Field commissioners Clummer and Miller discovered brother Sobrack of the daily Crescent and they thought the problem was at once solved. He was to be the political Moses that would Lead them out of the Woods and expound republicanism is it was prepared for the Public by the democratic Board of commissioners of Defiance county. That was the first move of the conspirators. Our esteemed brother of the Crescent was called Down to the office of Tho Defiance Democrat and there the ensnare ment of brother Schrack was attempted. Ile was called Down several times and the conspirators wrestled with him Jacob like but he refused to be a party to any of the schemes submitted. He refused to listen to any of the pro positions made. It should be distinctly understood that Tho welfare of the Republican and express is not dependent upon the Public printing that is Given out from the commissioner s office. The management of the paper will Light for every tiling that is due it but will not be bluffed or Black mailed out of one cent. Aud the commissioners might As Well understand right now that if they have started out in a crusade to wreck the Republican and express they will find it one of the most excruciating and heart rending affairs that has Ever taken place in this county. The management understands who it is that has been stand ing at the Elbow of or. Clempner and enlarging upon t he grandeur of the scheme to Start a new Republican newspaper. It is his right perhaps but he should not get too near the saw. It is a dangerous position. Electric bitters.

But the editor of the Crescent was not disturbed by the Golden Hook that was so temptingly displayed Aud refused to his credit to consider any of the propositions made to him and retired from the Conven Ticle without a touch of leprosy. If my informant is Correct the management of the Democrat was Especio Illy Active in attempting to bring Urbont this Deal.

Shruck was not in the Market the second move commenced and now it is announced that the democratic commissioners of Defiance county will Start a new Republican newspaper some time Between this and the first of the year a of course thedr names will not appear As managers editors or anything of that kind hut still they Are to be the Power behind the throne that is to keep the sinews of War softened up. They an in other words to be the hypodermic syringe that will keep the skin of the new venture Well filled with the elixir of life. My understanding is that they Are not to even be known in the Deal but that their views and plans Are transmitted through a gentleman in j Hicksville who is alleged to be in the i or vice of the commissioners. The string of course that leads from the commissioners office will to hidden from the Public Eye and there will be no punch and Judy exhibitions other than according to the program mapped out by messes. Clempner and Miller. But let us digress for a time and look at this subject from another stand Point. Following or. Schrack a refusal to consider the proposition to in Ike the Crescent a Republican paper he was visited by a gentleman who asked for figures on his office. The information herein Given is not from , but i considered it Correct and am reasonably Well satisfied that if there is any ques i he Republican and express has not in n single instant swerved from the line of duty. It has stood for the Republican Pirty and the people 1 by the Campaign that has just closed a great big majority of the democrats so Ood Wiki he paper. They Cane from every town $11 i township in the county with their complaints against the Board of commissioners borne of the members were arrogant and unfaithful to their trusts. It was democrats who brought Forward the proof of everything that was 1 asserted by the Republican and express during the Campaign. They had simply been scorched and blistered so frequently by the scorn ignorant 1 and vanity of the commissioners that they were driven to desperation. The silence of this paper would have secured every dollars Worth of Public printing that is to lie Given out by the commissioners but it has no Staple attachment to its Mouth to catch the first Golden padlock that comes along. Last year the paper lost Over $1000 of Public printing because it stood for decency and Justice to the people of this county. It would not have lost a single cent of that amount if it had not attacked the county commissioners. It was not the Mission of the paper to wring any patronage out of the commissioners. Tie wrongs the taxpayers were subjected to was what impelled it to take Tho stand it occupies toil in. It is no fishing for any Broad pieces of Gold but it in common with the people is to hasten the Day when in the language of David Miller Esquire a the do nest lot of corruption this county Ever heard of a will he exposed. A a # a a i want just a word More with the people of this county a other i no through. Note carefully what is said and Yon will have a Clear understanding of the Case. List Spring there was a Luw passed by the legis lature making it the duty of the county commissioners to give their printing to two newspapers of opposite politics at the county seat during the late Campaign the Republican and express contributed so far As it could to Frank Clemmers defeat if a single statement that was made against him was not True it has not been pointed out. What is the result. An attempt is made to ensnare a respectable newspaper Man. Why to punish the Republican and express by taking away from it the official printing of the county for daring to Tell to the world the truths that have come no from the tax payers Bont the misdeeds of the commissioners. What next finding that Schrack could not be bought and sold it is the proposition to Start a new Republican paper. What for to crush out the Republican and express for telling the truth about the commissioners. What More the commissioners Are Back of the new venture with their patronage. Why should they be because they want to put a muzzle upon the press and people who dare to speak the truth about them. Do Yon see the Point i have Beard no complaint from the republicans regarding the policy of this paper. Tho democrats who opposed Clem Mer have had nothing but words of Praise for the course it pursued. Now the commissioners want to chasten Tho people and their Mouth piece by Walling up the Mouth piece of the people. When the commissioners bring Forth their Little Republican Woods Colt i think the democratic party in Defiance county will have taken something into its system a Hundred times worse than dried apples and hot water and that the managers will not find hoops Long enough or Strong enough to keep the party together next Campaign. An intelligent people can he persuaded to do a great Deal but when a party Bull Hacker attempts to stir up the animals Atter they have been goaded to desperation by his abuse Traore is usually Only a very Small grease spot left of the whacker after the frolic is Over.
