Ritual of the firemen and after a prayer by or. Roberts the body was lowered and covered with Mother Earth. Such was the burial of William Howard. Who was William Howard and Why did he come to such an untimely end let us see. William Howard was born in Illinois but came to Jefferson county when but a year old and has lived Here Ever since. He Learned the Coopers Trade and worked at it several years when Young. The first Public position he held was Bat of Constable during the existence of Tbs Maine Law in Indiana he was a county agent to sell liquor. Afr Ermai a he was a Deputy sheriff then turns Tel of Madison township then City assessor then City marshal Aud for the last 16 years has been continuously treasurer of the City of Madison. During this Long term of official life no word was said affecting his integrity until the Spring of 1877, when be made Bis last race for City treasurer. At that time major Simpson in his. Paper the s a attacked him both personally and officially in the most bitter and offensive manner. He did not. Confine his assaults to criticisms of Howard s official acts but he charged Bim with being both personally vile and officially corrupt. As evidence of this i have taken the trouble to copy the following extracts from the Star or. We. Howard s object now is to make himself a Martyr to be looked upon As a persecuted do Sciple or latter Day democracy. What a Beautiful pastoral eocene it would make t see the Meek Vestal Howard with a Blue ribbon around his neck and a Bunch of posies in his being led around by a Pink string in the bands of one of the Mackerel brigade a Star april 18, 1877. If there is the slightest particle of honesty manhood Seii respect or common decency left in the once proud old democratic party the democrats alone will defeat Bill Howard so badly that he will be ashamed of himself if he is capable of , april 19,1877. n t Bill Howard make a Nice saintly Martyr of the democracy Uriah Heep under Blue Glass could t k e More Umbley stir 17, 1877. Quot if the Clerc Stantial evidence which surrounds or. Howard the democratic City treasurer and candidate for re election and which Points directly to perjury robbery and forgery surrounded a Man charged with murder de would surely Ufier the penalty of the Law. It s no use of or. Howard s attempting to make a Martyr of himself and whine that he is persecuted. That s too bin. He is sign ply a detected embezzler caught in the act. He attempted to escape detection by the result of forgery and he was nabbed in Bis filth. There is no Glamour of Romance surrounding or. Howard s crime. It was seek thievery stealing from friends and foes alike when he thought himself perfectly Safe from detection. The tramp Quot nipping Quot a handkerchief or stealing dirty clothes from a line in the Back Yard has about As much Romance surrounding him As or. Howard,.and they to h deserve about the same condemnation. Star april 12,1877. If Bili Howard had any shame or manhood about him. He would go out like Judas or old and bang himself. But not he. He brazenly and impudently Steps to the front and demands a re election. He expects to buy his Way jul Al Widy do we hear his hired cattle Yelling that Howard will Send 15,000 before he will be beaten. Honest democrats has income to that having shamelessly robbed the taxpayers of their moneys William Howard will simply turn around and use it to buy up the Low and vicious. For 10 years Hedaa adat his heels a Hoiass of the most infamous in our City and they have Bee Regn Early paid out of the City funds on various pretexts. There Are a lower Lassof creatures in this City made in the shape of men that this fellow Howard owns As much Asa Farmer owns his dogs. In fact they have collars on their necks bearing the legend Quot i am big Lowr Ard s , apru18,1877. Ito withstanding these file charges out the Star or. Howard was triumphantly Eli noted to the office he sought. But the charges so dec Leasly and defiantly made were believed by Many a a cd men the City and to test their troth or falsity a suit was Bringht against him by the City. He accepted the of Iuan let thus thrown Down and demanded Honore pans she was suddenly knocked that the suit be brought to trial. But the attorneys of the City being satisfied there was nothing in the a Harges of the Star and that Howard had honestly accounted for every Dollar that. Had officially come into his. Hands dismissed the suit and abandoned the Case. Thus was he prevented from establishing by a verdict of a jury Hill innocence of the vile Charees that had been brought against It is no wonder that Howard should a have had no love for the Man who thus sought to ruin. And destroy him the wonder being that he abound have submitted to being so grossly Traduce without taking his hands and seeking personal satisfaction v but As he often expressed ii to his friends he was a Public Omro a. And As Senehi Felt it Bis duty to Bear As. A it. Be could the attacks of those who. I smiled him. But when Hii official term was about to expire and he he off handed to private ranks he made up Bis mind that he would no longer be a the assaults of the Star. A so when. In july in it major Simpson in a letter from Cincinnati to the Star spoke of him in an offensive manner he sought dress by assaulting Simpson and giving him a severe personal castigation. So too when in the Star a few Days son were fraudulent water Bonds of this City a oat and intimated in such a Way that his meaning could not be mistaken that Howard was the guilt author of the fraud the latter attain resorted to violence by knocking Simpson Down with his Cane and striking him after he was Down. That he had no intention of seriously injuring his enemy is apparent fact that although be had Simpson completely at mercy he inflicted no Cerious injury upon him. After he bad left the major and had walked some 50 feet away the latter Drew his pistol and shot at Howard four several times one of the ballets making the wound that caused his death. That Howard did wrong in a scriptural sense in assaulting major Simpson in the manner he did admits of no controversy the Good Book tells us when smitten on one Cheek to turn the other but human nature says when stricken in a tender place return the blow and Howard was but human. Did Howard s course in this matter show dih to be vindictive and Overbea nog Quot if it were so it was a grievous fault it and grievously hath he answered i have so far said nothing about Mcfetridge who fired the first shot Aji Howard the one that caused the amputation of his band. He seemed to be hut a tender to the Man of War that opened her guns of in retreating foe and the Caliper of his weapon corresponded with the Caliper of Bis physique. It is said that heretofore he he Home a Good reputation for Pesce and fair dealing and Many of Howard s friends express Gret that the Young Man should have taken part in a quarrel in which he had no concern save As an employee of ohm of the e belligerents. A there is another feature in the blood Al drama i have attempted to describe that deserves Coos duration. A Jor Simpson commenced publishing a a tar in the fall of 1876, since which Tii Hebe has let Een involved in no less than five per Sonai altercations growing out of matter a Bis paper. He has been assaulted twice by Howard once by John w. Links once by James Benham and oboe by Tom wright., it seems apparent to anyone that he has overstepped All journalistic i Dejose handmade Bis paper a vehicle of personal abuse else these things would not Lave been. Madison is proverbially a peace Able City and during the whole of its history no newspaper Man save Simpson has Ever been assaulted for matter published in his paper. Although we have the Grubby libel Law the Public has to proper Protection against the venomous a by of an irresponsible newspaper writer. He bludgeon and the pistol Are to be deprecated and they should never be employed except in defense of property or Lite Eaith the Law hut Shakespeare has declared Quot who steals purse steals trash. But he that finches from Good name robs Hie of that which not eni lines him and makes poor if one s Good name be better than Gold it should be allowed at least the same Protection. Mejor Simpson the Slayer of Howard is Well known in Indianapolis. He was for two several terms on the local Force of the Sentinel and for sometime he solicited advertisements for the people. He is i believe a texan by birth but spent his boyhood in Kentucky and most of his manhood in Indiana. He was a major in the Union army during the War and for quite a while was conf tied in the Libby prison at Richmond. He was elected to the stare legislature 1872 As a Democrat from the counties of Jefferson Scott and Jennings and for several years was City clerk of Madison. In 1876 he left the democratic party and became a Republican since which time he has conducted the Star of this City. He is a forcible and pungent writer but not an elegant one and barring its personalities his paper a exceedingly readable. What its future will be i can not divine hut i Hope if he gets out of his present dilemma and continues its publication be will quit personal journalism and essay a higher plane in the profession than he Bas heretofore occupied. John l. Mcfie Indge who is involved with Simpson in the death of Howard was born in this City. He is about 25 years old and has been on the Star i believe since it started. His father lives Here and is Well liked by this people. Simpson and Mcfetridge Are in the Madison jail having been remanded there yesterday by judge Allison before whom they were brought yesterday morn ing. The examination will be resumed to Morrow but will hardly be concluded before tuesday. The result will be anxiously awaited by this people who Are much excited Over the sad events of the last few Days. Howard was a leading Democrat and most of his friends were of that party but he was respected and beloved by Many leading re Public in one of the latter said to this morning Quot no Man in this City had so Many and so warm friends As this is True beyond <ue8tion. The qualities of his head and heart were such As to draw friends to him and to make . He was a positive Man he took his position and maintained it he chose his friends and stood by them. His Friendship was True and the Man who was possessed of it had something on which he could lean in adversity As Well As in Prosperity. He was a born Leader of men. He left no one Here who can fill his it face and his death will be most _ severely Felt by the democracy of this county. He was As Brave a Man As Ever lived t doubt if he Ever knew from experience the in Aning of the word fear. When he was shot and taken Home to die he made no complaint. When suffering the most excruciating pain no murmur escaped from his lips., he heaved no sighs uttered up com plaints but bore his pain and anguish with the Tience of a Martyr and the courage of the Brave Man be we a i this died William Howard one of the bravest and one of the truest men Chat Ever lived.

It is a fact shown before the British parliament says the Prairie Farmer that while the rental of land in Ireland bad Dobud during Hundred years and that of England had crippled the rental of Scotland had a ext pled i self in the same this is a Uri buted mainly to the vastly Superior school Myslem which Scotland has possessed and the kill and Ente Pri get ii bad fostered among the people. It is a fact that a truck Farmer within a dozen Miles of any of cur Laree cities will get a Clear profit of $200 or $300 from an Sere of land while the amp average old style Farmer hardly gets that amount from his Hundred acres or More. These facts Are Worth studying by the still Large class who do Sot see the use of agricultural papers and teachers Etc and who think muscle is the main thing in successful farming. The truck Farmer studies Bis Market knows what is wanted learns Bow to raise it when and where to sell it believes in manure boys it believes in knowing ail Abou his business takes his paper read and thinks Don t kick at facts because they Are printed keeps his eyes open and drinks in knowledge from men and books. He keeps learning and succeeds in his business. There is still a Large class in our farming population completely stereotyped. Many take no agricultural papers attend no fairs no Farmers clubs try no experiments have no Faith in improved tools and Stock and Are hardly Able to Tell at the end of the year whether they lose or gain in their business. Success in cultivating the soil is already and is to be More and More dependent upon brains. Men who read and think most plan most wisely and execute most skilfully will succeed Best we need Only the help we can get from the teachings of science from journals from fairs and dabs As Well As from the daily experiences of the Field. Preside its who were senators. Philadelphia times some newspapers in discussing the prospects of Thurman Bayard and b Aine As presidential candidates h be stated that the Road to the White House is not through the Senate chamber and that no United s ates senator Ever became president the truth is we have had at least nine president who were members of the United states Senate and with three and Grant every one of the Presidente had either passed through the House or sen at. Adams was vice president Jefferson before he became president was Secretary of state and vice president Madison had had a term of service in the he use and had been Secretary of state Monroe had been senator Secretary of state and foreign minister Adams bad had the same experience a Jackson was a member of the House the Senate and foreign minister Van Byren had be a a senator Secretary of state vice pros id by and foreign minister Harrison was a in Ember of the Home and vice president Polk was a member of the House Fillmore a member of the House Pierce a senator but by fan a member of the House senator acre pro state and foreign minister Lincoln a men ber of the House Johnson a representative and vice president senator after he bad been president Gnu even had been Secretary of War and Hayes was a member of the lower hons. With these fact of history it would seem Taftt any member of Congress might he pardoned for having an ambition for the presidency. A special from Castoria n. �,., says Revenue agent Blacker assisted by Deputy collector Gyles has unearthed Gross frauds in Gaston county n. N., Cafrie a on by registered Grain distillers in collusion with government officers. The seizure of .500 Gallons of Corn who by abstracted Froni distilleries and secreted by distillers has already been made. Plans of the ring have been exposed end Large seizures of spirits and distilleries and a upor Tant developments May be looked for. The frauds to a great extent have been perpetrated through the Sale and shipment of Corn whisky in kegs filled from unstamped packages. After trying for a number of years almost in vain to raise Good celery on Ordinary dry Garden soil i finally borrowed the use of a Little Patch of reclaimed swamp land deep Black muck Well drained but moist and for the past two seasons have grown on it very Fine celery with but Little labor.
