Defiance Weekly Express (Newspaper) - October 22, 1903, Defiance, Ohio
Ortan amp Tisa City of Fht Bali div Ait Atco at Fhi Conrud incl or Tim a Olanik and Naumik Rivera the heart of the great Maumee Valley in onto j a 43 vol. , Ohio thursday october 22, 1903. No. 46 important features of Campaign about All that s left poor Man May still vote for his Good friends who Are Rich. N commenting upon the personnel of w. A. Kehnast who was nominated for representative in the late convention at Island Park the historian of the Crescent news who grouped the attributes of this Friend of labor and up builder of the material interests of the City sought to Safe guard him against any unpleasant questions by interjecting the important information that while or. Kehnast has put his Money into various enterprises the amounts he has invested have never Given him any share in the management. Hewa vice president of the savings Bank and while the amount he put into that institution might have been Small the Bank itself lost some $130,000 that belonged largely to Farmers and working people. His voice in that institution was second to that of the president and As a business Man of thorough training and wide experience no reasonable excuse could be offered for him not knowing the condition of the Bank prior to its collapse. If he was deceived in that his chosen Field of labor in a matter with which he was in close touch every Day there would be danger of a bunco Man carrying him away bodily if by any Chain of circumstances he should be sent As a representative to the general Assembly from. Defiance county. Of course the savings Bank failure occurred ten years ago and has been referred to Only to make Plain the Point that historians Are often very weak and Uncertain in their grouping of alleged statement of facts and that or Kehnast has not always been in a position to have his Mouth padlocked when the interests of the people were at stake. In the Island Park convention there were several Able men pitted against or. Kehnast in the contest for nomination for representative. The inside history of that wonderful convention that was so managed As to sideswipe the ministers of the City and Saloon keepers at one stroke comes largely from democrats who were delegates or candidates. One Man a creditable citizen who sought the nomination of representative said he could have secured the prize if he had expended the tidy and significant sum of 12500. If the nomination Cost More than that amount it were Well that none of the Labouring men of the City had entered the contest. The nomination for treasurer and commissioner Are said to have commanded relatively High prices when placed on the auction Block. If these wonderful allegations which came from exclusive democratic sources ape True it ought to be Plain to every poor Man who has heretofore voted the democratic ticket that the democratic leaders in this City have left him but one thing to do in a party sense and that is to vote for the highest bidder for nominations in the Island Park convention and his $15,000,000 Friend Tom the historian of the Crescent news says that or. Kehnast has an a a unquestioned reputation for fair dealing a and this same historian says that in All his transactions or. Kehnast has been forced to submit to the management of others. That would not be a logical deduction in the savings Bank Case though it is Plain to asked partner plea a i i ii or. A ked in the Island Park convention As Well As in the Case of a strike where a demand for Justice on the part of labor had been made. It is not the policy of the express to detract one Iota from the credit due any Man who has shown a desire to Advance the interests of the City or its people but in the advocacy of or. Keh Nasty a candidacy the democratic press and leaders have marked out a line of March Over the Good name of f. L. Hay. The High attributes that Are credited to or. Kehnast ought to have obviated the necessity of resorting to dishonesty in the treatment of or. Hay but As the historian of the Crescent news says that or. Kehnast has always been forced to submit to the Rule and management of others in uplifting the Labouring men etc., we presume the same rules applies in the conduct of his Campaign and the labors of his historians who we again have to thank for bringing to Light some striking comparisons that might have been forever lost if it had not been for their acuteness. Henry Kahlo talk on work of convention what is needed to make All such meetings a Success. A of \ a a v several townships Are prepare they make All the exercises of a ing for conventions therefore it is necessary to give a few suggestions. 1. Begin the preparation of the program Early at least two or three weeks before the proposed Date of the meeting. 2. Select the speakers carefully and avoid overloading with too Many addresses. Let there be if practicable one speaker who is known As a practical sunday school worker and give him or her a Good share of the program. Do not neglect the primary class but have at least one address in that department. 3 let the program be varied not All addresses but with them Normal lessons Bible readings a Praise service and a question Box. Give each speaker clearly to understand just How much time will be allowed him and do not crowd too closely better fewer exercises than a crowded program. 4. Music is an important feature. If a Good musical Leader can be secured he May prove a valuable Helper. Sing familiar an solid ones rather than empty Jingle. A choir might Lead in the music and and an Anthem in the session. 5./print the program three weeks in Advance of the session and advertise it As thoroughly As possible. Notify each pastor every superintendent and every sunday school Secretary in the township and ask them to remind each other and see that it is announced for two successive sundays before the meeting in both Church and sunday school. Have a notice written for All the newspapers especially those in the county towns. 6. At the appointed hour let president take the chair and open the meeting whether few or Many be present. Do not wait for late Comers but begin on time and carry through the program promptly. County Secretary. How Quot to make a convention High Grade there Are Many kinds of sunday school conventions most of them Good but not All Are on As High a plane As others. Some men see More clearly than their fellow officers the dignity and lofty purpose and spiritual helpfulness that Are proper in a Gath Erin of sunday school workers. Ass social thebans of Bose Jacobs of this City and Chas. Hoeffel of the Bend were published for the first time in St. Marys Catholic Church sunday. Convention tend to these Noble ends. And they Are right. While a convention May be too formal and mechanical there is no danger of its Ever becoming too ser ious or too spiritual or too helpful. On the other hand there is at times the possibility of a convention becoming too rival too undignified too informal too purposeless and too indefinite. A convention is called for a certain object or else it should not be called at All. Nothing should be admitted to its program which interferes with this aim so also anything which contributes to the end and few should be diligently sought. Speakers should be chosen primarily with a View to their serviceable Ness to the audience that will gather and not for the Sake of representing a certain denomination or Section or of honouring an individual. The Man with a message is the Only Man really Worth having on a convention platform. The More refined and spiritual and practical and in. Word appropriate the exercises at a sunday school convention the More truly will be that convention fulfil its Mission of helpfulness to the men and women w Hom it has called together.
