Sal tyt7t7t a Tumir Ian Quot i -v2 vol. Al ii. Re . O. Thursday november 2i 899, to. A 7 Dave Hills Catarrh of the Over. Great speech every Organ of the human body liable to Catarrh. I Points considered in meeting at Knopps school House. A William Jennings Bryan Democrat gets after Chas. Behringer. A be speech made by Dave Hill at Kopp s school House. Highland township. Tuesday a last week has Cre ated a great Deal of talk in the East end of the county. The mention of the speech in the express has been the occasion of Many letters that have asked for More details. Dave Hill is one of the sturdiest free Silver democrats in Defiance county and no Man could be More uncompromising in his work for the party than he is. He went to the meeting at the Kopp school House to hear John a. Deindoerfer and t. T. Shaw speak. He heard Shaw in defense of Dias. Behringer he heard him denounce the express for publishing what it had taken from the records in the court House. Hill knew the express had published the truth because he had Ard the Story from Hon. John w. Winn who had caused the tax inquisitor to get after Behringer. He also knew that or. Winn himself had pressed the suit against Behringer until he was forced to pay the Back taxes on the Albert Coy mortgage which he swore before the tax inquisitor he did not own. After Deindoerfer and Shaw had completed their speeches Dave Hill asked to be heard. His brother w. L. Hill presided and granted him permission. He spoke for a half hour and daring that time he simply mowed Down All the Timber in reach. He scored Behringer for the record he had made in the Albert Coy matter and said it was True because John w. Winn had told him so. He also said it did not make any difference if Behringer did deny it the records were in the court House to prove that Behringer swore that the Coy mortgage did not belong to him and then turned around and swore that he was the owner of it. Behringer was present in the meeting and was ripped up so unmercifully that he denied the records and said they were not True and that the auditor had not taken his evidence Down As be had Given it. Hill then said that if there had been no other reason Why the democrats should vote against Behringer there was one that stood above All others and that was that Behringer had voted against Bryan in 1896. He challenged him to deny that lie had fought Bryan and cities an instance where he told a Democrat tip Travis on the eve of the election that he was against Bryan because he had put Good Money into mortgages and did not want to be paid Back in fifty cent dollars and a some of that Good Money Quot said Hill raising his Finger dramatically a was in the Coy mortgage which you swore before the tax inquisitor you did not this charge Behringer did not attempt to deny because the fact he was against Bryan was so widely known among democrats that he knew it was no use. Hill next passed to the late democratic county convention and said that Behringer a fear of fifty cent dollars had never left him until he Learned that the Hicksville delegation was for Sale at $100 and then the Scales fell from his eyes and Light shown All around him. Behringer asked Hill if he charged him with paying $100 for the votes of the Hicksville delegates. Hill said no but he said this a member of the Hicks Ville delegation had come into the Highland township delegation and told w. L. Hill that he could have the 47 votes for $100. Bill refused the offer and some eight minutes later the 47 votes went to Behringer and he had a right to believe that he. Behringer had paid the Price that w. L. Hill had refused to pay. As Hill warmed to his speech he skinned everything before him and was so fierce in his strictures that the chairman at last asked him to desist. Or. Deindoerfer wanted to reply but the chairman would not allow it and closed the meeting. Dave Hill honest patient persistent Democrat that he is could not stand the tax dodging record of Behringer and when he heard the records in the court House discredited by democratic speakers to help along a Man who had voted against Bryan he rebelled and not Only skinned Behringer Bat also took the hide Horas and hoofs off those who stood As his defenders. David Hill is a w. J. Bryan Democrat who cannot be Ball lashed into line for a tax dodger who also voted against Bryan. It is thought there has never been another such a democratic meeting held since the Days of Jackson. In Fairbanks and Ryan speak at the citizens. In. Nettle Lind.

Is the Power of Bossis so boundless that officials can is bulldozed into silence while their own records Are challenged by the gang they had no opposition. In the convention in which they were nominated but that Conven Siou made a record for corruption which has appalled the honest democracy of the county. Me Sra. Hockman and Snider must know that Behringer Ltd swear falsely in the matter of the Al wet Coy mortgage and if they Are going to be a party to the covering up of the acts of Behringer the band of honest democracy ought to. And we believe will fall upon them As heavily As upon the Cen Tresl wrong does. Well known society people to be wedded soon. This shows How to vote a mixed ticket. Voters elect j. L.
