Defiance County Republican Express (Newspaper) - March 3, 1892, Defiance, Ohio Defiance county Republican established 1857.Defiance, Ohio thursday March 3, 1892. Vol. Xxxv no. 12 in Bronson a addition to East Defiance. No weekly and Montney payments Call or write to us for terms and prices. Bronson a Beal estate Exchange Corner Clinton and second sts., Defiance Ohio. Sherwood. A thriving Village in the Center of the county. A Republican express representative visits the town and is warmly welcomed. Many new subscribers. I spent part of the past week at Sherwood and was handsomely treated by the people of that enterprising town. It is hardly necessary for me to say that Sherwood is located nine Miles East of this City at the Junction of the b. Amp o. And c. J. Amp m. Railroads. Sherwood has been the convention town of the county for Many years and hence has very frequently been the Center of attraction for All the people in the county. The population of the place is too or 700. It is an incorporated Village and is controlled by the following officials mayor or. George Hock marshal c. F. Heller clerk d. F. Open-1 and or councilmen James rank c. I. Hartshorn Emanuel Miller Jerry Blume John Openlander and j. K. A Lender. Politically the town i3 about a nip and tuck a though the township in which it is located used to give a democratic majority of something like two Hundred. I enquired As to the cause of the falling off of that majority and was informed that Many of the old time democrats had rebelled against the democratic leaders at the county seat and had declared that they would never again affiliate with them. Some refused to go to the election at All last fall while Many others swung into line with the Peoples party. The springing of Wesley o. Barney Minerva like from the brow of democracy on the eve of a county convention and his nomination for treasurer by the City bourbons after other worthy men had made the canvass and practically won the Honor was one of the things that soured Many democrats in Delaware township and caused them to sever their connection with the party of their fathers. It made me feel sad to contemplate the changed conditions in the Camp of the enemy. The great cure All for such ailments is for the disaffected to Cern into the Republican party and help wipe out the evils that have occasioned so much sorrow among the tax payers. It is believed that the Peoples party will nominate a township ticket this Spring. There is a Large faction that left the democratic party that cannot be reconciled to democracy and has not yet concluded to cast its fortunes with some other party. There Are some prohibitionists in the township but it is not expected that they will be in the held during the Spring Cam Palau. The republicans Are feeling very Good this season. They say thag while this is a democratic county Many of the prominent democrats in the county have Cut Loose from the party without surrendering their principles and will act with the republicans until there is a recasting of lines and general Reform in county affairs. When i struck the town plat i heard Many sensational stories regarding the celebrated Case of sheriff Ewing is. A. F. Schrack of the Crescent Affiche was for hearing in the corridors of the c out House one Day last week. Due Man had it that the editor had wiped up the floor with the sheriff another that the sheriff had taken the editor on his horns and tossed him through the roof of the Temple of Justice i explained to All enquirers that the gentlemen in question did not a j tally lock horns. It is the consensus of opinion in the Hay Fields that too Many cases have been tried at Defiance without judge or jury in the past and that the practice should Stop. If the sheriff had frankly admitted that he had forgotten to make his returns of the special venire in the Willey ease within the time required by Law and had notified the court of that fact his friends in the county would have Felt much different that he did make false returns and then wanted to whip a fellow Man because the truth was Given to the Public is a Little Jnore than the average american citizen in the Rural districts can stand. It tends to shake the Confidence of the people in Public officials and lends weight to the claims of leading democrats that new men and new blood Are needed in All of the county offices. Immediately after the arrival of the Republican express in Sherwood last thursday a delegation of prominent citizens called on me and asked that make one correction in the next Issue of the paper. In the papers report of the Flag raising in Tiffin township the claim was made that it was the first instance where an american hag had Beeh elevated above a common school building in Defiance county. On february 22, two years ago the patriotic order sons of America celebrated the Day with fitting ceremonies and put up a handsome Flag Over the school House at Sherwood. The Flag was destroyed a year ago last september when potters drug store was burned. It is the purpose to buy a new one in the near future. The commendable Point in the Flag raising in Tiffin township was that the Money necessary to meet the expense of putting it up was raised by scholars. The claim of Sherwood is recognized but now let the scholars of the Public schools give an entertainment and buy a new Flag themselves. During my first evening in the City of Sherwood i listened to an animated discussion Between or. Hartshorn of Ney and Johnson Miller. They were doing what has Here to fore been considered an impossible feat discussing politics and religion at the same time. They Are both republicans both experts in an argument and made the Sparks Fly. In the meantime the audience amused itself by seeing How nearly it could cover the store floor with tobacco spit. It was a Friendly contest and honors were even when it ended. The doctor has to come Down occasionally to straighten the boys out. Davi d Palmer is one of the Best known characters in the Village. He is an agreeable and entertaining talker. He was born in Huron county and at an Early Day went South and finally drifted Over a into the Indian territory where he remained for 18 or 20 years. When the War broke out his sturdy opposition to slavery made that Region an unenviable dwelling place and for two years or More the mountains were made his Domain and his dwelling place whenever night overtook him. He was an aggressive fighter and though hunted by the rebel Bushwhacker Day and night escaped alive finally returning to Ohio and losing All of the property he had acquired in the territory. He came to Defiance county a number years ago and started a saw Mill at Delaware Bend after a time he sold his Mill and moved to Sherwood and started the Mill that is now operated by e. Reyff. His excellent wife is a native of the state of Maine and was a teacher in one of the Mission schools in the territory when air. Palmer first met her. Uncle David was formerly an ardent Republican but now favors the prohibition and woman a suffrage party. As i heard him Tell his thrilling experience among the rebel Bushwhacker and knew that he was hunted by the Cut throats like a wild beast because of his advocacy of the principles that were first taken up and advocated by the Republican party i thought his proper place was in the ranks of the party that had upheld by Force of arms the doctrines for which he had risked so much. That would seem to me to be one of the most appropriate associations that could exist in the evening of his life aside from the Church. Midnight mechanics better known As burglars broke Loose in Sherwood one week ago saturday night. They tried to Force their Way into the stores of Potter and Miller Brothers and also visited the residence of b. M. Hutchins the Well known Butcher but were frightened away. Sunday right they visited the Haver House and were so anxious to get the landlords wealth that they pulled the Pillow and his Panter looks both from under his head. That awakened Mose but he did not know until the next morning that he had been visited by burglars supposing of course that some of the girls had thus disturbed his rest. The War cry that he raised saved him any loss for the visitor dropped his in Nemuti enables before leaving the room. At c. W. Openlander Sythe thieves took $2.50 from one pocket while $80 in another of the same garment was overlooked. A watch was taken from the Home of John Lutz. The marauders visited the Home of miss boor the pos mistress but were frightened away.
