It a an you Tell me what a certain Hicksville Man has teen doing in town the past week or ten Days Well i Ani not sure. But i think he is looking after the interests of Ainsworth. Candidate for representative. How s that Well sir be is circulating 8 in on g the Liberal element of the City looking after the anti cold water contingent in the interests of or. Ainsworth. He loves society. He tried to fill up a re publican newspaper Man an Bug juice tuesday Sud keep him so in the inter est of or. Ainsworth. Is that Sov yes sir i think the Hicksville mis a Man who will Dodge his own taxes and then try to run All the factories out of the City is act a fit Man for county commissioner. Or. Charles Behringer hold a position on the Board of cemetery trustees of this City Aud be Chela fiends claim that be has been of taking a grab for George s salary Ever since he has been on the Board. When Daniel Webster Coy arose in All his glory in the late democratic \ county convention to withdraw his name for county treasurer he made in i the language of the profession a trite i observation. These were his words. Murk them Well. He said a Quot gentlemen this is the first game i was Ever into in which i was raised out. I cannot raise the Ante and therefore with Fri onary ought to be looked after by Theof raw my name. It takes a Fine poker women so it gum missions by society. Maybe or. Ainsworth Dosen t know about it or is train to pull Kerns and Behringer through Well i Dea r know better t Clephone Over to Hicksville and find out. Good Day sir. Good i be. Player now a Days to win a nomination in the democratic convention. He will have to hold a straight flush in one hand and a thousand Dollar Bill in the other and a cold deck up his sleeve to stand a ghost of a show. The old adage maintain it honer draw a Lessen of Patriot ism from Tho history of his party which caul of Dot n the Flag in the Southern states in 1861 hauled it Down in Hawaii and now is read to haul it Down in the Philippines. Will Tell Hie people of Defiance that the duty of a american Soldier is to Retreat like a Coward to pull Down the Flag to a Ive Aid and Comfort to the Anomie of his country in time of War to meet in county convention without a Flag in sight and then and there resolve Annite Able opposition to War forced upon this country and in which it is maintaining its Honor before the civilized world v what a convulsive shiver must be Given to any audience in the present j Campaign whether Republican or dem Straf. When the following extract from Aguinaldo s last proclamation is read As it will one at every Cross Road to America there is a great party that insists Art the government recognizing filipino Independence. Therefore tee must Shote our gratitude and maintain our position More resolutely than Ever. I in should Pray to Hod that the great democratic party May tem the next presidential election and imperialism fail in its mad attempt to subjugate us by Force of let the democratic leaders look the a situation a surely in the face and in to dress Well does not necessarily mean to dress expensively. A High Price does not indicate a High Quality nor does a Low Price always indicate a Low Quality. Much depends on where you buy. Is that a Man who will buy his into office will steal out. Farmers you j a political sagacity is a lest Ait among republicans work for your ticket. Hundreds of democrats Are doing it for j. You. They do not want the times to change. Viz a pm How Long did it take Mark Thompson to fire Mike Walz on of his Job in the Post office to make Way for a Hun Gry Republican ferns Ami Democrat. Not half As Long As it took Kerns to get Home one night Wrhen come women it of Georgetown had the pleasure of play ing with a Basket full of eggs. K % the hoofs of the tax dodgers. Johnny Aud Charley can still in heard Pound ing the turf in the calf pasture but they Are nearing the end of the rope. The Man who does not know some thing about How the people of his Community Are feeling upon the political issues of the Day is not giving proper attention to questions that Are of vital importune to his own affairs. Will tin evening a can. Or Democrat or lint ii it Lea so let the democratic voters of thin comity know Pliett of Ever or. Kerns will pay his Hack taxes \ mail vim does not pay ids own taxed a would lit lie tit to in elected to t lie Atlee of county treasurer to collect other Peoples taxes honest voters consider tills before you East your Voles lying shout Sud Germany vilify ing Behringer and Kerns by the express is having one Good effect. It is arousing the demo tits of the county to a vigorous Effort in behalf of these gentlemen and h donating Many he publicans so that they Are driven to the support of these i a Molt a Ratic candidates. Acts and Democrat. Yes it is arousing Lite honest demo Erat it is arousing them to such tin extent that men who buy their Way in to nominations by fraud or corruption and the Aid of the old savings Bank crowd will be snowed under in november next beyond resurrection. The Vetcs and Democrat both admit that it ome republicans would Aid these my this May be True. Ina Vecy few in stances there Are a few republicans by name but not by principle who stand really to do the bidding of the gang but a hey Are not republicans the democrats have nominated Man named Kerns for treasurer but lie should a elected w w Heater. Is the kind that you can recommend to your Best friends with every Assurance that it will give satisfaction. They have the style of a $20 overcoat the Quality of a $15, and sell for one Price clothing store. To hold Down the Job. That is official. Why d d they not nominate a compe tent Man in the first plat it a John r. Mclean will Endeavor to bold Down the Republican majority a lie by rising a Pencil in j them they will right about face and a it. Knock them Galley j Cut Loose from Aguinaldo by placing or j o. Fisher Republican Norm Nee for county commissioner is a tax layer. He is also a fearless upright Many moral Aud truthful he is one of the Best mechanics in this part of obit my a Good contractor. Alive All. He is a mail of Glt Psi judgment. No Fli Flam Bridge jobs Etc., could be run in on him. As Comus Ziouer he would have the nerve to get up and kick about any crookedness that the gang might try to run through on the Board of county commissioners daring the worlds fair. For two was build ing inspector in the City of Chicago he is by All Odds the pm st Man the re publicans of Defiance county Ever bad the Honor of presenting to the people of Defiance county for commissioner la nails from the third Ward City of Doti Anne. He is a clean Man and an resident of Defiance. Honest men sup port him. You will be doing yourselves Justice. Cas Toinia. Aah the kind you have always Bouillin the rot of the express about c. W Kerns idling w w. Heater or any one else Deputy treasurer is to Bunch of falsehoods pure and simple. This should he enough to dispose of that canard if my person cares enough about it to j knows anything about politics 1 can remedy this november next West and you la not be troubled with their party on a High platform of Patri a am by Ere Etc. In office for ten years to j Otis and enlightened Progress. Come. The express has not said one word it is Well known by everybody that j Agaj lit Charley Biebri Ogert a qua Ifica give in any attention and Democrat yes we admit that or. Heater was in the City of Defiance tuesday Aud said that the report was a mistake because if it were True it would Hurt or. Kerns Iii Washington township however. Rumours Are afloat that j. H. Beth i Kiel of Tiffin township is to be Reward Edas Deputy for his valiant services rendered or. Kerns Iii the late Convell Tion. While democrats of washing j ton township admit that Kerns him i self would not be competent to run the office perhaps or. Ret Huiel might be. J we shall not criticise that a Early in the Campaign Kerns came to this City to see the old gang who have been making slates for years. The gang. Of coarse. A arranged that Kerns was to he the treasurer and Behringer Tion for the office of news and Democrat. No we did not Cate to. It is to delicate subject but democrats even now ate parading the a treets questioning whether or not be can read or write commissioner Coy and Malley thought i i would be a great improvement on the they were in the push but they were present Hoard if lie could do1 either. One thing Charley Behringer never dodged. He never dodged paying Labouring men in his employ every cent he owed and Democrat. He never had any men in his employ. What kind of a hand did he Ever employ except a poker hand he was simply employed As an overseer at Turnbull s factory. It was his business to see that poor men worked ten or twelve hours every Day. If you think he has any friends in the fourth Ward among the men whom he bossed As a master would a Darkey just go Over and see for yourself you will go away satisfied that he will not get a dozen votes in the Ward. Yet Kerns thinks he can pull him through. We think Behringer will have to pull Kerns through before this Campaign is Over. The old savings Bank gang were the Means of nominating these men. If you think that gang is dead in politics in this county you Are badly mistaken. Building Stone. We have All kinds of building Stone for Sale at our Quarry four Miles South of town. Price per Cord $5. 2m40 advertised letters. The following letters remain uncalled for in the Post office at Defiance Ohio for the week ending oct. 17.1899 ladies gentlemen miss Clark. Ham Elliott.

Thompson postmaster. Card of thanks we desire to extend our since thanks to those who so kindly assisted us in our late bereavement. Or. And mrs. Geo. Good. Side tracked. Kerns Aud Behringer pulled through hence they will have to be used a instruments to do the gang a bidding it is Well understood that Kerns is an easy subject to handle. Would be an easy matter to put a Bull ring in his nose and Lead him around like they did poor old wee. Barney. It is Well known that Behringer had to be jerked no to the hitching have the republicans of Defiance j Post in order to pay any taxes at All. County nominated candidates for any pe0pie we know that a few years ago that not Only hundreds of dollars go into the auditor s office and read the notices stuck up. Signed by the com Misti overs. They cannot even spell. And offices other than commissioner treasurer a nets Ami Democrat. The republicans of Defiance county have named a Good clean ticket. Every Man on their ticket is worthy the support of his party. From top to Bottom the ticket if composed of men of Good moral character and ability. T it that ticket this paper lends its support but the express makes no War on compe tent officials of the opposite i arty who Bear Good moral character. Our pretest however we wish to enter intones so loud they cannot be misunderstood against men who aspire to office who Are neither moral competent nor honest. There Art too Many incompetent Mea in office in the court borne now people who have business with the county can not secure its transaction with any de give of satisfaction and we h a of Bridge jobs Etc., Etc. Galore. This paper does not purpose to sit by in but thousands were returned Delic queer. Aud would not have lieu paid had not honest John Wisda got after them with a Sharp stick of course every Dollar which is dropped and returned delinquent Bas to be made up by the poor hard working Farmer and the poor Labouring Man hence you see Are virtually taxed twice. Taxpayers done to Yon think that a Man who would Dodge his i own tax. Woald stand ready to do the bidding of the gang that helped to Nom j Nate him. All that would be necessary would be for Tern to Wink at him and i their taxes of course would be returned delinquent what would be the result extra taxes for the poor people to pay. Why done to the express Tell its readers Why Charley Chi Buaer resigned his $8000 per year Job As superintendent of the turn Hall Wagon and Democrat. Because we did not care to inform the Public but. Since the no a and Democrat insist we would say that the boat a say be could do better playing poker. He is said to be an expert in that line. Will the evening news and Democrat please inform the democratic voters what else he has Doue for a living the past several years since he left the Turnbull Wagon works besides dodging taxes yet Kerns thinks is can pall him through Hod.
