Jan tory ,7 the following appeared in the reporter of tuesday evening. Bayru a tammany gang. From All that has transpired since the last meeting of the City Council the conclusion is forced that an Effort is being made to seat or. To Bill whether he is entitled to the place or not As Imp. Worthington says in an interview published else where it is a scheme of a tammany ring of politicians who assume to de cide just who can or who cannot hold office in this and that this willing to go to desperate lengths to gain its ends is growing More Aad More apparent every Day. It is the same gang that held the Gas company of for it is the some gang that tried to hold up a Candi Date for Congress recently and it is this same gang composed for the most part of designing Aud unscrupulous politicians who Are trying to run the politics of the City and county. The Bunch represent nothing Are in the game to get All there is in it both politically and financially. This latter move is in line with other attempts to Rob the peo ple. If or. Hobill can be seated the infamous Resolution to hire an out Side Engineer at an enormous expense to make plans for a new sewer system can be railroaded through the Council and other things of a Simi Lar character accomplished. It is Well for the City of Elyria that in this instance an in corrupt a but desperate. Handed by the gang s anarchistic at Torney. That or.

No amount of Billingsgate can Blind the people to the fact that the reporter can place its fingers on no instance where All the people who Are opposed to the old and where the chronicle has not been upon the Side of the Public in the fight for Lake water which will soon be com ing in abundance to Elyria in the tight for cheaper Gas which resulted in the reduction from to 25 cents and in every controversy the Public and the chronicle have worked together for the Best interest of All. And it is this same Public that the foregoing article refers to As the tammany ring the article seems to indicate that the inspiration for the attempt to Force or. Worthington into the of fice to which it is alleged he did not aspire has come from the plan to fight the City s efforts to get a adequate sewer system in the same manner As an adequate pure Supply has been fought and same old the efforts to fight the City in the water question resulted in the lots of something like but it is to Price one cent.
