Woodward As a matter of fact the ring hns never been broken and or. Miller is now a member of the very organization that to fought so viciously and Laboured so hard to break Down a number of years ago. It May be that the corruption that haunts him like a Nightmare at this Day existed when he was at War against tin court House ring. There Ere hundreds of Good democrats in the county who believe that the corruption of which he Speaks is a matter of to Day. That is the reason Why so Many of them Are arrayed against h in and h s associates and i insist that it is duo the people of the county that or. M Iler should Fri e a card and let Thorn know what to Means. Ile has never offer d any explanation and his party Organ Lias never at it by time it ered a single word about Tho very serious charges that he makes. For some weeks this paper has devoted space to purely local affairs. That was not merely to cause an Awakening among the residents of the City but to give the Conniry people some idea of How the democrats run business in the county town. It will have been noticed that there is Little difference in county and town. A Railroad company that is running a Lino towards this City gets hard up for funds and a democratic Council with out any authority of i in Steps in and acting in the capacity of a banker advances 852,500 to the infant Enterprise a number of persons receive and consider bids for a Bridge in one of Tho new additions of the City. All at once a democratic Council Steps in and builds the Bridge its self. Why or How it was persuaded to put that Burden on the people if it w is persuaded a not been explained the Bill was $2395. It was a do that there was on y $1800 in the Bridge fond. When the time come for tile Council to receive the Bridge it was discovered to be a bad piece of work. At least so alleged. Then a proposition was made to Settle with to e contractor by deducting $500 from i Bill. That brought the Bill Down to about Tho amount of the Bridge fund in the City Treasury. Now the information comes thai some one other than the Council will pay the contractor the $500 that toe Council wanted to deduct from his Bill. If that i True what disinterested Friend of the City is standing i in the dark helping out in a bad Job what does this All mean certain y the people need More Light. Tear up of a Road the commissioners May lev a tax not to exceed i believe three Mill for the purpose of repairing ii now the general Road tax of 2bj Mills in this county is levied tinder the a Law and hence Tho of the com in is loners in in k no tie Ivy As they have l Ien doing i unwarranted. Tho Money so collect it d goes into a county fund and expended where Ever the commissioners deem Best the pop o of this City paid $5,123.29 into this fund in Iho present Board of commissioners has never allowed the people of de to is c one cont of the Money contributed to this fund to be expended upon the s reels of tills City. I oat Lea Little heavier pull upon Tho pocket books of tile taxpayers than the Preston run affair but it is right along in the same line. It would not be called Highway robbery but Tho Money is to he tax rivets of this City just the s in if it had i Eon expend i in building up the roads leading directly into die 0 to it would not to so Baj but that does not seem to have i e of the Cam. In in Irving Down some of the Unco sry burdens that have been Gid died upon the people i was in duty bound to note to e fact that the Ople of Defiance Are paying $5,000 or $0,000 into a fund that the commissioners Aru not Warr med by Law in levying. Indeed there should be a Way of compelling the commissioners to refund this Money. % will find the finest assortment of Jiuu. At prices that cannot be duplicated at Colby amp Scott a drug Book and Wall paper store. It was this fund that a been the cause of so Mach complaint among the Tux any ers of the county at Large. Each township ays the 2l. Mill Levy but the commissioners can i spend it in what Ever Par of the county they May desire As ills thrown into a general fund Honea it will be understood Why some parts of Tim county have to Der Roa is than others it will also by understood i of or. Denim r could Promise to enter into a bargain with the people of a Community As a is Allegri he did do to build them a certain amount of Road providing they would give him a c a turn number of votes there is no doubt but that some very goo i w Ork has l Eon done with this fund but the Levy is on that Tho commissioners have no authority for making and have been so informed i learn on a Good Many occasions by the county Audi or. The people who i received to Benefit from the s tax May in angry Winn Thoy learn the facts herein give. There Are some others who i have been kicking about their Roa is that i should roast their township trustees. I pass this subject for the present but Hope to Tike it up again at some Limo in the future. I think the readers will understand that there Are some Hor is that should be scraped out and healed up.

At Ono Mee ing of the Council a Resolution was passed authorizing the building of a sewer in the South end at such time As there should be funds in the Treasury to pay for it it is said that even at that time the Levy for sewer purposes for the Corning year had been anticipated. Ono Day the sewer committee r calved the Wink and work on the Wilhelm Street sewer commenced. Then the pipe being used were condemned and for the past week the work has been at a standstill. To tear up the work that has been completed will involve extra expense and that conies Down upon the tax pay egg it is not material about whether the sewer was needed or not. The Point is Why should the Council have gone Bick upon its Resolution. Why should it have allowed work to to commenced on the a wer when in knew there were no funds to pay for the work. Who was to be the beneficiary of the Job that is Tho gravest que scion in sight and i have merely recalled these c uses to show that there is something mysterious about every one of them. That the t a payers Are by ing used or so at least it would Par to Bony up interests to at Are never seen upon tit fur of ice. The main thing tin n for tile people to do to eradicate such evils would b to Weed out the causes. Which would mean the ret rement of the present Council. T in taxes in Defiance Are heavy Tho Levy for 1889 for ail purposes being 36.20 Mills. In considering the affairs of the City it will be found that they Are a Good Deal like a Riddle. If they were not it would be impossible for such items of expense As have been referred to in this letter to slip through so easily. There Are Many others. A4nevvgpaper May Call attention to such things but it is left with the people to say whether they will allow themselves to be longer used As a political foot bail. A Man who honestly believes in the principles of a party his expected will be Loyal to his party but is a Man to be admired who will sacrifice h s interests in behalf of party leaders who have lost sight of what Little virtue was Ever claimed for their organization in their quest of greed and personal advancement. There is away for the people to get from under tile Deadfall and the it is by bursting the Combine that holds it Over their Heads while in the s line i want to Lake up a question that interests the people of county and town alike. There is u Law that relates to the levying of a Road tax for extraordinary purpose if there is a washout or Evansport is a Vidue of about 200 inhabit ants and is situated almost Cue North of Defiance near the Williams coitus to Hilton the Bauk of bean Creek or Tiffin River a Beautiful Stream that a its source in d Vns Lake quite a famous pm asure resort on the Mackinaw Railroad and flows South through a Rich rolling country and empties into the Maumee just West of de Nance near tile water works. The River makes a Bountiful sweep around a Peninsula a Quarter of a mile Long near the Village and along which the main baldness Street extended for Many years. The Peninsula remain us Beautiful us Ever and is Covi red with a magnificent Grove of sugar Aud Beech Trees among them the id ans had a Little Village it was s do by the first settlers and used to Hunt and fish along those Rich Bottom lands. It was a great fishing resort at the Quot Bend a and lower Down near a Little Stream or Branch of Tho River was our bathing resort Foi Many be irs and also the spot who r the militia used to meet on training Days to Drill. An old gentleman lived t Ere by Tho n my of Dyke afterwards a or. Brace and finally 8 Eben Keu Aberg now of Stryker Ohio training Duy came every hat Rudy and was the general Jubilee d y for All the boys in the Cumry for mites around. They played Ball pitched quoits walked stilts an i turned somersault cart Wile Els climbed Trees went fishing and bathing. Fun was the main thing on tile program. The pretty girls were there too dress ii in their Best Calico or Linsey Wolsey fixings to see the games und to Sec the soldiers it rising Down across the Green Meadows or marching up main Street through the Village. It seems to me they h id a general must a every three months t Ion All of the companies met at Evansport for regimental or Brig de Drill. Gap Aln Cassell commanded the Evansport company and capsule John 1�?~artee, the Brunersburg company. I cannot remember the officers of the companies from other parts of the county hut i never shall forget the appear my a no the military dignity of col. Jacob Coy Asha Rode Down main Street at the a head of the column of fours on his Lar a Black horse and with a three cornered hat. When he gave the command in his heavy grand old Vole it used to make the hair stand on our Heads. We marched along with Majestic tread keeping time with the old Veteran some of whom had been in the mexican War. I think they camped on mustering Dav on the Village Green near and in front of the old Denin in House. The to n s were quite Large similar to the Hibl Gay tent used in the civil War. The martial music of t in old limes was Yudee i music for us Little boys it seemed to Roll out Aud Rover Berat All along the streets starting the boys out of to Dir Beds in he morning and they would run Down town in their sleeves to har the Fife arid drum. In the Center of the Camp and in front of co. Coy a ten. Stood Tim Liberty pole with a Biant Ifill Largo hag the s ars and stripes. Adding to to Breeze. How we wished we were men and could Wear a plug hat with a of red White and Blue in it Cit. Johns company had uniforms gift irent from the other companies and we used to Ca l them the mexicans. They wore a Silver Gray Sui White leather belts and breast s raps and Cartridge boxes. They marched from the Burg or at least from to Johns farm to Evansport and Tho people especially Tho boys were All glad to s 0 capt a John a company March into c nip. It looked More Uke War to see the mexicans coming with colors flying Drums heating and to hear Tho grand old soul stirring Quot Yankee Doodle Quot or Tho a girl i left behind from the far South we could hear the music Long before the company were in sight Aud then see the to a and the Long Hoe of troop winding along the soot 1 Road and up the Snider Hill into the Village with oat. John Lea Ling a h column. It was a Grana sight for the boys. Every 4th of july was a Gal 1 Day for the militia and the people for Miles away came to Evansport to h Ive a Good Tim and a big dinner. Two or tin be Days previous were occupied in putting in a Bower made from the Forest Trees and several Long tables loaded Down with Good things baked by the Farmers , were spread beneath the Bower. It seemed that kind Providence smiled on the people in those Daya there s e mod to be such an abundance of supplies and i do not remember of the rain spoiling a single Days pleasure on the 4th of july but i suppose i am forgetful in that respect the saddlers had a grand Parade Aud same times a mimic Battle and the National Salute with the old Anvil in the Moning. It is surprising what immense crop of Grain were raised in those Days. From 30 to 40 bushels of wheat was an average yield and i remember very distinctly when All the wheat raised around Evansport was Cut Vav the a a sickle a a an instrument which w Ould be quite a ii Mioshy to the boys Imp a Days. Or. Coy owned a Largo River bet Tom farm and the saw and grist tulu now run by Coy Bros two of his wins an Ashery anti a dry goods store in the Village la a a r Ilse yearly immense crops of Wisent Aud Corn and sold his Grain and. Fiance to Pierce Evans a soil u to shipped it to Toledo by Onnal to t. I t to cents or Bushel was considered a Good Price Tor wheat. Rats us Grain for Market was considered a p lying in one Ltd and of Tho crops were very Largo in the Vicinity of Evansport and the roads almost impassible at the time the Naiko was the beset a s concluded by some of the Moat Farmers to try another method of of porn by. The plan was to Clear the drifts from bean Creek and put on i s writ i Horn kind of a boat to be propelled with Pike pol Ca and the plan was put into execution i think by Squire Coy and Edward Lin Den Burner Aud Mio building of the Experiment of Evansport was cum denied in Earnest i think about the y a 1h50, in the til land finished the Fol towing Spring. I remember troops of us boys would file Over the old Bridge above the Mill an i under toe o d Elm ire s to the Navy Yard As aim Coy called it to see How near the bout was completed und to p a every Day we could got away from our Homes when it was nearly Fth bed Mart Coy und let King and a couple of others whose Nam a i have forgotten would play All sorts of daring trick on the Frame and s Atford of the Bod even climbing out on Tho Bow that so Ood Folly fifteen feet from the ground ii i reaching the Elm Irnis Over head and drawing themselves up into their e and scrambling away out on the great boughs that reached nearly to the Center of Tho River then letting themselves Down on a Large grape Vine that re cd d nearly to Iho w Ater Aud hanging Thoro splash their feet in the River. Man and Prott wore the most venturesome boys lever a. They would climb out of the at in window at the old rain Bouse and run along the Eav s and comb of the roof As fas us m y could go w. Lie St of in Rood Anil looked on expecting ovary minute to see them fall toe House was two Story and three Fei t from Tho ground above the High water Mark. Another feat of pretty a Ami m Irtys a to run up and Down the supporters of the Railroad id ago. At h Ryker fifty feet from the wat r in Low. This Bridge was at West Boston 8 Ryker just b Moro it was finished on the air line la it finally the Groat boat was completed and utter Day next a the d a fixed to Nam and launch it it was in the Spring i wish i could remember the Date and to Waters were rising rapidly from Tho remont Rains. I was a beam if it d in and the Lions were up Bright and Early so were Tho Birds and Mio Sun and no Ono can the excitement we boys were under when the poop e began to pour into town and lined the Bauk of Tho River and Tho old Bridge. The boys were All promised a ride and As Many of the and women As wished to risk it. The time wag aet to launch the boat at half p St one in the afternoon. Nerly All the boys we re perched up in the old Elm tree As soon a they had swallowed t heir dinner and wore at , when Squire Coy fed. Ludenberger and others of the leading made their appearance on the or i Ige about one of Obook. The Boot was blocked up fully ten feet from the ground and a scaffold at the Bow on wit of Tho men stood to name it and a Long l Eer bottle full of old Rye a produced to assist in the ceremony. Ail was now ready. Home one Sang a Quot song. Tee old Anvil was loaded up and the gunner stood ready to touch it off at the proper time. The bottle of whisky was Hula up in the sunlight a i on the Plato took a swig of the Good liquor with or. Lundenberger who finished Tho whisky smacking his lips and at til top of i voice yelled a the expel Mont of Evansport a at the same t to ii smashed the whisky bottle Over the Bow of the Noah an i Boom went the Anvil Ain i Tho Aimers of the vast crowd of people As the boat Slid Down into the flaming Waler. Thorn n wer s at their places with tile Long Pike hand the i Olin m in swung ii it a. Round to the Shore and the gang Plank was s Zovod out and she received to r first cargo of human freight and Tho martial band pm Ved Tho a the girl i lift Bulltail yes of she passed under the Bridge and floated around the Groat Bend to Tho Goose neck a Lieut two Miles and n half to the South Side of town near the foot of water Street where she landed and w Here a Long shul was or pared to Load the Grain. There n or was so much enjoyment put inside of Thris no and setting of the hum As we boys h d that d in. We seemed to he launched in a new world a we floated Down the River Over the dam and passed the old ii ill where we used to Bathe in Low water. Then Down the River we go under the Willows and elms Hun r with Grap a vines Ani a1 nature dress d in its most in anti fill t it. A How grand it was to be a boy Iii those old time and live Iii Evans port. We though Doh Nee must Ben la tie Villa a we Hail never been .

Father a a cd i enter and had b in employee by 8 deny 8 Sprague who was building a hot i in la , die Bussell Houe and to came Homo very two weeks i thought that the town was a ii tie larger than Evansport. I. Spragues youngest daughter took us Over to see Tho old fort and told us its use ac., and showed us the old Apple treo across the Maumee. In a year or two after the launching of the Experiment when we were All attending school at the Obi school House near Tho a Farmery when some of the boys saw a Large column of Smoko coming up from some House near Tho a Goose neck Quot Tho Peninsula that fronted main Street and started Tho whispered cry of lire around the room and the Touthor Rose up very slowly and walked to the window and by that Tim Tho whole school was on foot and some of them ready to run. I thick Tho Tench r w of Mccauley or probably Art Hurthere i can not recall his name Orthol Loof is anyhow Tho flames just then burst through the attic window and the Tenner started for Tho door and ill whole school for their hats and bonnets Aud some of them , and across Tao Gren to Tho store de.

Linden Berger Cam it Down Tho St drs with cassion Howard by that nether garments wrong end up. Aud run into the Middle of the s Reet and stood there Dan ing holding c Sion Howard by the heels. Mrs. L said she was go id the old rat trap was burning Down. By this Limo out came la featherbeds and pieces of furniture from the Balcony above and jars of preserves and jams Etc., wer thrown on of the windows into the Street and smashed to fragments even the Large Mirror w s handed Down outside but it fell Anil broke on the sidewalk. I think the building belonged to John Kintzig. There was another store on the opposite Side of Waer Street kept by Jacob Kintzig who afterwards sold out to col. Bradley. Or Kintzig Tymn moved Down South of Evansport on his farm and started a distillery. Col. Bradley and his brother continued a merchant of Evansport several years until Coy a. Snider Uncle John hinder built a store on what is now main Street and whore Thomas Yeager a son arc doing business at present.
