Some crooked dates straightened out Only a theory As to or. Sauer s candidacy for Congress. Nominee to Bew. A Man. List week i made the announcement that the democratic congressional convention in the sixth District would be held in Defiance june 25th. That Date was Given in Advance of any action taken by the committee and the editor of this paper addressed a very polite note to me asking me to explain How i come to make such an announcement. It was very simple. I read in a democratic daily paper perhaps the Bee that the convention would be held Here june 24th. I sought verification of the report in the Herald the Only democratic paper published in the City. I was Able to figure out that there would be a convention held june 25th. I took it to be the congressional convention when in fact it was the Call for circuit judicial convention to be held at Findlay june 25th. The democratic committee of the sixth District meets in Defiance tuesday june 24th, to fix the time and place of holding the next convention. That does not matter however As the text of my letter last week stands intact. No. 26. A conference with Frank j. Mains of Tho Paulding Democrat what took place at that meeting is not known to Tho general Public but one thing is certain that very shortly ofter Mains returned to the Village Down in swamp land Andy Sauer emerged from the shrubbery ready for the race. To a Man who had climbed a tree to get a top Side View of Tho situation Tho question might Well come is or. Saner a candidate in his own interests or has he come Forward to help John l. Qeyer out of a rut Sauer stood for Geyer As against w. D. Hills friends in the legislative contest and strange As it May appear there Are a Good Many people in this Section of the country who believe that w. D. Hill is a candidate despite what he has said to the contrary and that if to gets a Good Bretell hold on Geyer that he will throw him so hard that he will burst. Hill is the a lion of Judah a so to speak in the Northwest and a sweeping blow from his Strong Paw is feared and hated by the wild tribes around him.1 Sherwood Ano Vicinity. Cd. F.

While speaking of congressional matters it might be Well to add that the wheel has taken a new turn and Andrew Sauer cashier of the Defiance savings Bank appears upon the Field As a full fledged candidate for Congress Andy Wab born in pleasant township Henry county in january 1800, and is consequently a few months past thirty years old. He comes of Good German Stock his parents being the first White settlers in Henry county. He left Home when but six years old and for the past Twenty three years has been a resident of Defiance county. He went into the banking business in this City March 1st, 1870, and is recognized As a successful business Man. He is chairman of the democratic Central committee and is now serving his second term As councilman from the first Ward. The distinguishing characteristics of the Man in business and politics is his coolness he is Fertile in resources and when in political times a something rises like the Black nose of a submerged raft to elevate the barriers that stand in his Way it is his own and not the hand of a wicked partner that has directed the instrument of War destruction or torture As the Case May be. What King maker has discovered and brought him to the front is Only a matter of conjecture unless it should have been the political Warwick of the Defiance Democrat. One of the smartest political moves ascribed to or. Sauer was the nomination of John in Geyer for the legislature in the Paulding Defiance District in a late convention held in this City. John w. Winn to the great Surprise of every one captured the caucuses in this City prior to that convention and went into the convention with a Strong following. He had in fact been promised sufficient votes from Paulding to secure his nomination. But there was a slip a twixt the cup and the lip. While John w. Slough was knocking the shucks off of old Payne and Cal Brice with his flail and the Brice men were trying to muzzle him the Sauer factions were hustling like so Many Saracens in the interest of Geyer after an All Day struggle Winn and Ali other competitors were labelled and filed away on the top shelf while the statesman from the hoop pole county walked away wich the prize. It matters not whether or. Sauer is standing for himself or Geyer to will Endeavor to secure a solid delegation in this county. By so doing he May Hope to clip the claws of the a lion of in event that it developed that there is no Chance for him in the convention his strength can then be thrown to Geyer so it will be seen that the editor of the Defiance Democrat has a1 i ready fixed two counties up to be used As battering rams against John w. Canary of Wood county. It is funny. This Able editor of the Democrat is not Handy in the use of gaffs. He tears too Many of his own Tail feathers out by the roots but despite that he seems to be getting in shape to Crow Over the Down fall of John w. Canary. That is if Hill done to run. If his done Trun. The indications Are that the democracy of the District will have the pleasure of voting for or. Do non s Man. It was said in this paper last week that now was a Good time to run up the storm Flag. I would like to supplement that by saying that now is Good time to Nail it to the Mast and one if �22,k Quot p�t9ng no an addition to m. Fry s residence. Shirkey Brothers do the work.

B to Fenry be Toch having a new granary a Henry Deitsch had his last week. Barn repainted sir. Sharpless last every one finds a new use. Switzer Brothers co is a Vij co i say is 4 Sill lips or \ it Bas been charged that while ostensibly for Winn Hon. W. D. Hill was the Power behind the throne that boosted or. Geyer up the tree and allowed him to carry away the plumb thus removing him from the congressional race. That May be True but upon the face of the contest it looked As if or. Sauer and his friends had Over come the Brice factions. Now it will hardly strike even an Ordinary Man that the election of or. Geyer to the legislature destroyed his chances for Congress. On the other hand it was set up As one of the reasons Why he should be nominated and re elected to the legislature that the democracy were without leaders in the House and that a Strong Man like John l. Geyer was the one thing needed to help the party out. It will be remembered that it is Strong men the Toledo Bee is urging the democracy to look alter when marking Down congressional Timber in the sixth District. A a pleasant dance at Friday night. A miss Ina Stone spent last week in Farmer township. Merril Otis and mrs. Sarah Wilson were married last thursday. A a b. Tharp and family were visiting Nelson Stone a few Days ago.

Keystone Block Clinton Street. Defiance Ohio. 46 Switzer Brothers. In one sense or. Bauer is one of the strongest and most aggressive workers among the Young democrats but he has no special qualifications that would recommend him to Congress to has had no training in that line of work. It is True he might learn. I think he would make an Apt student. But there is a Point Back of that Worth considering. In the canvass this fall it will not Only be necessary to choose a Standard bearer who can appear to Good advantage before the people but one who will be Able to discuss in a comprehensive manner the great questions that Are agitating the Public mind. Fafone but a trained speaker could do that work Well and or. Sauer is not a speaker. He is a Good manipulator of men but something More than that is needed. I am informed that the Republican and express will devote a Good Deal of space this week to show that the one purpose that is abiding in the Defiance Democrat office is anything to keep the democratic nomination away from John w. Canary of Wood county. No matter what happens he is to be slaughtered even if he gets the nomination. The editor of the Democrat says Canary killed w. D. Hill and Hill in a letter published in the Toledo Bec monday evening says that Canary was one of his strongest supporters that the editor of the Democrat was not authorized to speak for him and that he does not propose to be read out of the party at this Date Day. Remembering then that it is the fixed purpose of the Defiance Democrat to kill John w. Canary let us turn Back again to the candidacy of Andrew Sauer. Marvelous endurance. The vast amount of labor performed by the heart in keeping All portions of the body supplied with blood is not generally Veato 100,000 times and forces the blood at the rate of 168 Miles a Day. Qom a 5 0,000,000 times and 5,150, 880 Miles in a lifetime. No wonder there Are so Many heart failures.
