November i vote Early the straight Republican county citizen dead. Zack Rains Well known in Williamsport and who for Many years was a resident of this county died tuesday of last week at his Home in Prairie township. The funeral services were held thursday at the Christian Church in Boswell where the deceased was Well known. His death was directly due to sickness that covered a period of about six years and first began by an attack of first Snow. The first Snow of the season for the year 1916 and 17 fell on october 20th, and it what some of our old weather prophets say is True we will have 20 snows before the daisies Bloom Hughes quot judging by his deeds the Man the nation local police authorities have been notified of the arrest of Charles Walker formerly of Crawfordsville but now of Mercedes Texas. He has a wife and three children in Crawfordsville and his arrest in the South is on two charges one of which is bigamy. The Man has a police record and things Are not Likely to go Well with him when the Texas officials find it out. I it is charged Liat Walker married i miss Eva Copeland of la Feria tex., i some five Days ago and declared i that he was going to Indiana with the girl on his honeymoon. Walker i however has not been using his 1 name in the South but has Susti i tuned Harry Southern instead. It j was under this name he joined i company c., from Crawfordsville i and also under the name he was i i married to the girl who is claimed to be but fifteen years of age. I Aho a forger. Besides this he is under arrest for forgery. The authorities charged him with forgery As the result of his efforts to pass checks to which he had signed the name of Sergt. Bradley manager of the first in Diana regiment canteen at Llano Grande. Several months ago Walker was i hunted by the Crawfordsville police i on the charge of forgery although the deed was not committed in this i City. Repeated notices have been i received by the police from the j Southern Illinois Penitentiary ask i ing that Walker be picked up for violation of a parole granted him from that institution. He was sentenced from Danville iii., november 12, 1912, for operating a Confidence game. Soon after he was released from the prison he violated his parole by leaving the state and since that time the prison officials have sought him. It will be remembered that in the past three months Walker forged a Check or two on fake firm of the Ross bros., which were cashed at the Farmers and merchants Bank of Attica. Liidi Ina ii it is i Lily Lewsi in a recent political speech at Jersey City Secretary of War. Baker was quoted As follows quot i know that the mexicans do not respect american life and property. I know thar. They do not pay their debts that they Are Raga Milias that they desecrate Church property that their Money is no Good and that they Are generally worthless. But people Riever respect those things in revolutions. We did not respect them in our civil War. Washington s Soldier s in their March to Valley r orge stole everything they could Lay hands on took the Silver vessels out of the churches and sold them to buy drink. Their Money was worthless and they were just As bad characters As the Are you an american citizen have you lost All respect for America and her citizenship can you after Reading the above shut your eyes fold your hands and console yourself with the thought that quot Wilson kept us out of War quot it Don t make any difference what the democrats say or do. Where is your patriotism where is your National Pride if you Are a True american citizen does not the above insult sting you to the very Core Lay your political preferences aside just Long enough to give the above paragraph one sober thought. Read it without any political prejudice and then if you Are the True american born citizen you claim for yourself the review Republican asks you in the name of common judgment How can you continue to vote with a party that has lashed you in the face with such an unpardonable insult. Mark you Well that they compare your grandfathers with the dirty unprincipled greasers. They compare you my Soldier Friend of the civil War with the worst cutthroats and bandits of Mexico and in so Many words the War Secretary openly states that revolutionary soldiers and the civil War soldiers were no better than the mexican Bandit and the head of the administration stands for such mouthing. We will frankly admit that the revolutionary soldiers and the civil War went out foraging for the substances of life and for clothing to hide their nakedness and shoes to cover their torn and bleeding feet. Their work Vas done of sheer i necessity and not in the spirit of the worst form of depravity and pure cuss Edness that could possibly i exist such As or. Baker has likened you unto. But Stop go Back Over the history of the Pas six years of the mexican War and let us ask has history Ever recorded where either the revolutionary or civil War soldiers Ever As a salted and Debau Clied womanhood As has the mexicans in those years has history Ever recorded that the american soldiery stripped the clothing from pure innocent girls and then stood them on an auction Block and sold them at Public Sale to a dirty howling mob of brutal greasers to be used at will by the purchaser. This was done in mexi i co and the unfortunate women were i american citizens an the present administration has turned a deaf ear to their cries and closed his eyes that i he might not witness these horrible j scenes. Where does history record. A that american soldiers murdered without caused inoffensive men women and children the mexicans did these things and the adm Nistra i Tion s War Secretary my Soldier friends says that you were just As bad and no better than these Diry Cut throats and bandits. We leave the question with you to decide for yourself whether you Are not and in the next breath be ask Are you or Are you not an american citizen if you Are it should matter not whether you Are a Soldier or a citizen or even a Democrat How can you with a Clear conscience with love in your heart for a god for your own wife and children and for your country support an administration that permits the flaunting in your face such an insult. We wonder if the Secretary of War or. Baker classes his own. Troops now in Mexico in the same Grade where he places the heroes of Villa s forces and Washington s vagabonds. The daughters of the revolution have been honouring and perpetuating the memory of a band of thieves who were As bad in character As the mexicans. Our Secretary of War tells us so and surely he is an honorable Man. A Fine spirit of patriotism. A Fine spirit of americanism he and his administration Are instilling in America no i very am change forty years ago Adams township had 180 names on her poll Book. Choose Hughes quot the nation will lose if it Don t elect in looking Over the poll books we find that forty years ago Adams township in which Pine Village is located and which by the Way was named for j. Q. Adams had Only 188 names on her poll Book while this year the registration shows that there Are 269 voters in the township. Of this number 11 did not Register and two registered in the wrong precinct. Forty years ago Oliver p. Morton spoke at a rally held in Pine Village and it is estimated that at least 5,000 people were present. In Adams township there Are at present eighteen men living who voted at the election 40 years ago and Are As follows l. B. Allen Marsellus Blind Frank Blind Allen Eberly j. D. Farden t. E. Fenton Eli h. Fenters Job x. Mills e. J. Martindale John Ritenour t. W. Rhode j. D. Stingle Jas. Swadley d. Shafer Ben Shackleton Jos. St. John we. Swadley and Henry Williams. Here also is a fact that perhaps Many voters have forgotten. The election in 1876 was held on october 10, and we would be pleased if some one who can would come Forward and Tell us when the time was changed for holding the election on the first tuesday after the first monday in november in the year 1876 it will also be remembered that Ben Harrison and Jas. D. Williams were candidates for governor of Indiana and that quot Blue jeans quot Williams landed the Plum. Hon. Will. R. Wood for Congress. A vote for Hon. Will. R.
