That this fact results in disgraceful and corrupt efforts on the part of the dominant party to secure and retain official positions and that the time has arrived when the aggregate salary and fees of every officer of this county should is reduced to a sum not exceeding twelve Hundred dollars a year increased by a sum sufficient to pay actually needed clerk hire.

Clinton St., bet. 4tb and 5th streets no4 Defiance. Ohio. Albert Elliott. The subject of this sketch and Republican nominee for probate judge Albert Elliott is one of the Republican leaders in Richland township. He was born in Coshocton county december 27th, 1839, and is 50 years old. He removed to Rich. Land township this noun a in april 1855, and now ryes a the Lunie piece of land that his father settled on in that yet he owns 160 acres and devotes his time to Stock raising Aud farming. He enlisted in the twelfth of o Calvary and served during the War being discharged at Nashville fenn., nov. 14th. 1865. Or. Elliott was elected Justice of the peace in r Uhland township in 1885. Llu is now serging1 As township trustee having been elected for a term of three be Ira out of 84 votes cast in South Richland or. Eliott received 80, which fairly indicates How he stands at Home. Nothing we could say about or Elliott would add to what the people already a Kotow. He is a Man of High character and wiil if Gleo Ted Grace the office of probate judge with Honor and Dimity and discharge the duties pertaining to the same with distinguished ability. He would make a worthy successor of All who have held the office in the past and a Model worthy to pattern after in the future. His ejection rests with the people. They will make no mistake in electing hint1. John Norway. The office of auditor is look upon As the most important in the county. In one sense it is but still there is no office that does not Call for exceptional Talent when the voters forget that fact and elect men who Are not qualified they do themselves injustice and leave the bars Down for ring Ste Sand political tricksters to come in and claim everything in sight As Reward for party service. As a matter of fact the auditor of a county holds the commanding position in the Field. The Man who occupies that position can squeeze the official wrong doer or he can allow the wrong doer to flourish like a Green Bay tree. He can Stop the leaks in the county treasurer or he can allow the Golden tide to flow out like the Waters from a riven Mill Pond. The Man who would Stop All leaks must be a thorough business Man honest and without taint of lust for the filthy Lucre that corrupts so Many men and brings sorrow to the tax payers. The republicans have nominated such a Man in John Norway. Or. Norway was born in Lisbon township St. Lawrence county n y., december 13, 1836, where to was educated. In december 1858 he came to Farmer Center and has resided in the township Ever since. He is one of the Best known business men in the county has been Post master for Many years is now notary Public and has held Many minor offices of Trust to which he has been repeatedly elected by the citizens of his township. He has been in the Merchan tile Basin is at Farmer Center since 1859. He has always been identified with educational and All other interests looking to the advancement of the county township and Community in which he resided. John Norway is a Republican but if elected will be the Peoples auditor. He has been in business for Over thirty years and would not go into office a Callow boy but a Man thoroughly experienced in the ways of the world with full knowledge of How and just where to apply the knife that would lift out the Public evils that have harassed the tax payers for a Flo these Many the democrats have said nominate a Man like John Norway and we will help elect or. Norway has been nominated by Bis party and we believe will be elected. The people of this county have need for just such a Man and if they do not elect him to the High office of auditor they will have reason to regret it when the a a sound of the grinding is lows and the Burden of taxation weighs them Down like a Mill Stone. Vote for John Norway for auditor. Ezra. 0. Stone. Our candidate for recorder Ezra o. Stone was born in Milford township in 1849. I lie Early years of Bis life were typical of the lives of All Farmer boys but at Tho age of seventeen years he commenced teaching school. Until he was past Twenty he taught in the Winter and attended school daring the summer season. He successfully engaged in teaching in Ohio Indiana Illinois and Michigan. For the past eighteen Yenta he has resided in Milford township farming in Tho summer and leaching in Winter. He hns b in a ufos Long Republican and Haa always taken an Active part in the work of the party. Or. Stone la widely and favourable known in this county. To la Well qualified to fill the off Loo of recorder and if elected will give his whole time to the work of the office. He a a worthy Man in Way and should be elected. School children will save Money by buying writing tablets pencils and school supplies at every republicans have named a Man for infer i of director who would discharge the duties of the office with Honor to the county and cred to himself and for that reason they ask Tho voters of this Donn to to elect this Man. A. Q Henry. This Gentilman is our nominee for clerk of the court und we regret to say is the Only one of the candidates of whose Early life we failed to get any note they were promised to us but failed to noorae to hand were forgotten until the hour of going to press. Or. Henry was born in new Jersey and Haa lived in Donn to for Twenty five or thirty years being about forty four or forty five years old. He served in the army during the late War and is at present Post master at Ayersville Highland township. He is a straight out Republican and a most excellent citizen he is Well qualified to discharge the duties of clerk and if elected will make one of the Best officials the county Ever had. James o. Wissler. One of the most ardent republicans in the county was born in Tiffin township in 1853. He is in Able and faithful party worker and at the late Republican convention received the nomination for county Surveyor. His name is James o. Wissler. He was raised on a farm and was educated at the Oak Grove Academy in Michigan and the Bryan Normal school. After teaching eighteen terms he again turned his attention to farming which work he is now engaged in. He was once before a candidate for Surveyor against the of. Wight Only being Defeated by 600 majority the regular democratic majority being something Over 130ft or. Wissler is an excellent accountant and in every Way fitted for Tho office. The of Floe of Surveyor la one of the most important in the county and we in common with a majority of the people believe a change is desirable. He comes before the voters strongly endorsed by his Republican As Well As democratic neighbors in Tiffin township. If elected he wiil make a Safe and Onsoien pious official. We believe be will be elected if the people of the county stand up for and vote their senti Monte. Let a work to that end. Tiffin township. House burned Harrow tooth penetrated his foot notes.

Our nominee for sheriff was born in Michigan thirty four years ago last june and came to Tiffin township in 1864. Where he has resided Ever since. Or. Crane was raised on a farm and though he taught school for some Winters has Given most of his time and attention to farm work and Stock raising. He is a Sterling Republican and As evidence of his High standing at Home it should be stated that two years ago he was elected assessor in Tiffin which by the Way is one of the strongest Derao b. F. Southworth. There Are few taxpayers in the county who do not realize the import me of the office of county commissioner. That question has been discussed very fully in the past a the late Republican convention Tho nomination of b. F. Southworth of this City was urged by the country delegates and he was made the unanimous Choice of the convention. It was a Wise Choice. Or. Southworth is about 60 years old and was born in Franklin 00., n. Y., and came to this county when about 8 years old where he has since resided excepting three years spent in the Argay he taught school for Many year being in charge of grammar a department this oily for four yearn after the War he was principal of the Hig 1 school for several seasons. He was appointed one of the county school examiners by judge Stillwell and occupied that position for twelve or thirteen years. He raised and went to he front As Captain of company e. 111th o. V. A in August 1862. He was wounded at the Battle of Franklin and wag discharged May 25th, 1865, because of wounds received in action. For a year after his return Home he was not Able to do anything but subsequently devoted ten years to teaching winos he gave up work in the school room or. Southworth has Given his time and attention to farming and Stock raising. He is a Stalwart Republican but was last Spring elected a member of the City Council from the third Ward one of the democratic strongholds after Ope of the sharpest contests since the town was incorporated. Last Spring complaint was made by some of the people on the North Side because they had no Church. Or. Southworth donated a lot and headed a move to put up a building. Now a handsome Church is nearing completion to the building of which he liberally contributed beside the donation of land for a site of the same. He is a Man of High standing in Community and esteemed by All who know Henry b. Harrie the subject of this sketch and Republican nominee Tor prosecuting attorney Henry b. Harris was born in Defiance nov 4, 1853. He attended the Public schools in this City and afterwards attended the Ohio Wesleyan i University at Delaware where he graduated 1874. The year following his graduation he was superintendent of the Union school at Hicksville. He commenced the study of Law in 1875 with Henry Newbegin and was admitted to practice in december 1877. He is now the senior member of the Law firm of Harris a Cameron and is one of the leading attorneys in this Section of the state. He is a Sterling Republican and if elected prosecutor would go into the office not As a youth to be educated at Tho expense of the to payers but a thoroughly trained lawyer who would not have to Call in an assistant to Aid him discharging the duties of the office. The office of prosecutor is one of the most important in the county and should not be used solely As the stepping Stone of every Young lawyer who aspires to political Honora the election of a trained lawyer to that office Means a saving of thousands of dollars to the people and for that reason the republicans have named one of the Ablest men in their party. Since the above was put in Type or. Harris has written a letter to the county committee a dining the nomination. This is to be regretted. We feel that he could have been elected. We believe that the people wanted him. The committee has not yet named a Man to take his place on the ticket but it should not fail to choose an experienced lawyer. J Thomas w. Haver Thos. W. Haver our candidate for infirmary director is a resident of Mark township and one of the Best known and hardest working republicans in the county. He was born in Tuscarawas county in 184 a but the greater part of his life Haa been a pent in the Maumee Valley. He served in the 185 cd L during the War and Haa an honorable military record. Or. Haver has been a Farmer All of his life. He is a practical Man eminently fitted to fill the office to which he has been nominated. It is conceded by ail that the Board of infirmary directors should have one Republican representative. In or. Haver the electors of the Donn to Woald have a Man highly respected at Home and honoured wherever known. It seems to be the desire of a Large number of democrats that there be a change in some of the county offices. The John Kane is visiting relatives in Coshocton county.
