Defiance Weekly Express (Newspaper) - October 29, 1903, Defiance, Ohio Ipi shh Defiance Isa City of the second Grade-Popolation--10,000. Growing rapidly situated at the Confluence of the a Glaize and Maumee heart of the great Maumee Valley vol. , Ohio thursday october 29, 1903. No. 47 lbs a sole n and handing duty proper and practical that the state federation following the Lead of the National body urge upon Catholic generally throughout the state to take All catholics on the proper and practical Means in ome people in this City have been howling at the attitude of question of socialism. The Appeal urging the catholics of Ohio to take a determined stand against the spread of socialism just issued by the state federation societies is timely. It should have great influence not Only with those to whom it is addressed but with All citizens who believe in sound theories of government. The federations Appeal states the Case Well and we reproduce it herewith a existing conditions at this time in Ohio make it eminently their Power to arrest the spread of socialism whose insidious and pernicious doctrines if permitted to Poison the popular mind especially of the working classes must inevitably Lead to the overthrow of popular institutions and to the enthronement of anarchy the dread enemy of All constitutional authority and even of christianity itself. A we therefore urge upon the catholics of Ohio who have now the practical Opportunity to do so to make a vigorous and determined Effort by uniting with right minded citizens to arrest the further spread of socialism within the Borders of the the dangers of socialism Are presented none too strongly. Free America surrendered to socialism w Ould be free America no longer. The men who Are advocating the endorsement by the voters of Ohio of the fallacious and ruinous doctrines of a socialistic single land tax do so in the Hope that they soon May extend their Sway to embrace a Complete socialistic state. They would make this a socialistic nation. A solemn and commanding duty rests upon the Ohio Man this year. The free ballot is the weapon with which socialism May be struck Down and it should hit hard wherever it raises its horrid head. Lively times in old Highland i delivered a Bir feet or action thursday night. We Are sorry that we Are not Able to give the world a stenographic report of the democratic meeting that was held in the stand the speaker then paid his regards to Deindoerfer a paper and said the a a big Many was a Leech social the marriage of miss Dora Rauth and Henry Dreher was performed saturday evening at the parsonage of Rev. Earl Spannuth. Both parties Are from this City. Mansfield school House High upon the county and was grow land township thursday evening there was Only one speech perhaps that deserved to be preserved and that was made by w. L. Hill. The speakers of the evening were j. H. Hockman John a. Deindoerfer and j. L. Patterson of the Crescent news. There were just ten voters in the school House when the meeting opened. Four came in later. There were a number of boys present who were not voters. The gentleman from this City spoke in the order named above. Or. Patterson in closing said that no True Democrat would scratch his ticket. Ing fat and lordly out of his snap. Or. Hill then discussed the Island Park convention. He said the convention had been taken to that retired spot Remote from women and children and the men in charge of it just cast aside manhood and resorted to Boodle and promises to nominate the ticket they wanted. The speaker was severe in his treatment of this convention the Point he made being that it was an outrage upon the democratic party and a disgrace to a civilized Community. Or. Hill then spoke about the . Bill a cripple Veteran of charge that he had received the civil War a Man who left a part of one limb in one of the fiercest Battles of the War arose. He had been maligned in Deindoerfer a German heroic he has since been maligned in Patterson a Crescent news. In burning words he called attention to the fact that Patterson the speaker Kehnast the democratic candidate for representative and Tennyson the democratic candidate for treasurer had gone to Cleveland and worked to secure the nomination of Vern. Kirtles on the Republican state ticket and then had voted for his election. A of course a said or. Hill a its alright for town people to do such things but it is an awful sin if the people out in the country even think of scratching a ticket. The Point made by or. Hill was that these people who had come out into Highland township to Tell the democrats How to vote Money. He told the people the Story of How he had been locked in the jury room in the court House in this City and the Effort that was made to Stop him from liking about the Island Park conventionally wanted to know what he wanted. He said i told them that no amount of Money would close my Mouth. Or. Hill then asked the speakers if they wanted to know who was in jury room with him but they were discreet enough not to ask. Hills speech throughout was one of the most sensational that was Ever made in this county. The democrats who run the auction at Island Park Are soliciting votes for Kehnast because he was a Soldier and at the tame time Are trying to Damn w. L. Hill an old Soldier who was shot miss Besse Hardesty and Henry Miller of route 6, were married wednesday. The Belling they received was the greatest in the history of Paulding and was heard Over several townships. Frank Kau former ally of this City but now of it. Wayne and miss Dora Craig of Paulding were United in marriage tuesday evening at Paulding. Rev. For. Cappe will perform the ceremony. Or. And mrs. Rau will make their Home in it. Wayne. Mrs. Rau Mother of the Groom Aud sister miss regenia will leave this evening to attend the wedding. A Happy reunion of the Champion children was held at the Home of Lucius Davis one mile East of Ayersville. Out of a family of ten children Only five Are living three Sisters and two Brothers. The youngest brother was absent. Those present were or. And mrs. Robert Mckinney of Winchester ind. Mrs. S. I. Hoard and son of Wheeler mich., i. N. Champion and wife of Munden Kau. It was a Joyful meeting As the Brothers and Sisters have not met for thirty five years. Man about town a for the lord Sake Man Bill Hill must have Given Deindoerfer a terrible drubbing in the meeting at the Mansfield schoolhouse Friday night. A Why do you think a did no to you see How the Crescent news of Friday evening jumped into him a a yes. I suppose William told them something about the doodling methods employed to make the ticket Iii the Island Park a the Crescent news says Bill has sold out to the a i understand that but the democratic press would say anything about a Man that had the courage to speak about the corrupt methods by the Bosses in the Island Park a they say that lie is sore because he has not been Able to secure a a the would certainly have a right to be. He was a candidate for treasurer upon the solicitation of certain leaders in this City. After they had used him and his friends they kicked him out of the convention. Besides that he has been held up and Shook out so often by the Bosses in this City that it is not much wonder that he is a do you think he is being paid for his work a a no. That is the old Boss d Edge. Bill Hill is one of the prosperous Farmers of Highland township and has plenty of Means of his own to make a fight against the Boodler and corruption St of the Island Park convention who wronged a then they claim he helped to defeat Henry Ort a a my opinion is that the thing that Defeated Henry Ort was the Gordon Creek ditch record and the act of the commissioners in giving the Street car company a franchise Over Hopkins Street Bridge without providing any Protection for the people who built the Highland township has a word. W l Hill explains Why the democratic press attacks him editor express a the Crescent news has seen fit to attack me a Democrat All my life and a resident of Highland township for 55 years and i now ask some space to reply my opinion is that the main cause for complaint on the part of the Crescent news was what i said in a speech made in the Mansfield school House thursday get. 22, 1903. In that meeting or. Patterson the editor of the Crescent news said that any Democrat who scratched his ticket was not a Good Democrat i made this Point that upon his own statement he was not a Good Democrat because in 1902 he had not Only worked for we. Kirtley a nomination but had voted for him at the polls and in doing that had helped to defeat a Good Democrat who no doubt had been nominated in an honorable Way and without the use of Boodle. I do not think i am open to criticism for protesting against corruption especially when the men who undertake the Job Are men who have been guilty of scratching clean men on their own ticked. Be n a a word Abou the candidacy of messes. Tort and Fuller. When or. Ort was for a third time before the people As a candidate for commissioner there were conditions against him that no Man could have controlled which the vote All Over the county showed while in the Case of George w. Fuller he ran ahead in Highland township As the returns show. In the Case of Chaa. Wehinger that gentleman has said to me that he believed that i voted for him and i did while the people in the township know that in that Campaign i made speeches in the township in which i urged them to vote the straight ticket. The Crescent news has charged me wit having backed up to the Hanna barrel in this Campaign. Even if that had been True and it is not True the Crescent news would not have had any kick coming for Early in this Campaign the democratic leaders in the City of Defiance invited me to a conference in which they stated to me that i could Back up to their barrel and name any amount i wanted if i would keep my Mouth shut about the Island Park convention. I told them i had enough to live on honestly the rest of my Days and that no amount of Money could induce me to keep still. That i take it is the secret of the attacks that have been made on me. It has been charged against me that i have claimed to have carried the vote of Highland township in my Vest pocket. I was a candidate for treasurer in that township four times and was four times elected running ahead of my ticket each time. That however i have always thought was due to the Friendship of my neighbors among whom i have lived for so Many years and who i think believe Roe now and always have believed me to be an honest Man. In this Campaign i have stated to my friends that i was opposed to corruption and that i looked upon the Island Park convention As one that should make All honest men Bow their Heads in shame because of the corruption that prevailed there. I feel that i have a right to say that without being maligned i feel that i could speak against the work of that convention without losing caste As a Democrat As democracy As i have been taught it for nearly forty years does not now and never has stood for corruption in any shape or form.
