Yeagy of Lafayette one of our former citizens was Here last Friday transacting business. George stump sr., is at Home from Colorado and was on the streets monday. He appears in the Best of he filth. While in several places in the county there is considerable kick being made Over the recommendations for postmaster we know of 110 appointment showing a greater disregard of merits the Peoples wishes and of future advantages to the appointing Power than the one at the Indiana Mineral Springs. This mistake for such it undoubtedly is can not to whole chargeable to or. Crumpacker but clearly shows the fixing hard of parties who ought e people of the Vicinity and patrons have largely been ignored. We say these things with no feeling against the gentleman recommended but there Aie few reasons Why he should have it and every reason Why his opponent or. Perry should. That the government allows the sex Istance of the Springs Post office is evidence that it is demanded by the people and no one Man therefore can claim that he is responsible for it. This being True it Sli Ould be at the disposition of the people and go to the one their Choice indicates. That the people indicated that they wanted or. Peiry for postmaster is beyond question. This was doubtless due to the fact of the almost Universal feeling that he deserved it. From a party stand Point this is no less True but with additional emphasis. Reaching beyond our political remembrance John Perry has been the committeeman from East Liberty has been Ever Loyal spent both much time and Money and out of a trying situation always brought from his untiring efforts the Best results. This was True because of his ardent republicanism and his standing As a Man being where he was accessible and a Fri n i to All classes. The turning Down of or. Perry whoever May to responsible Means that republicanism and years of party loyalty and work goes for nothing and can but end in political detriment to the part. We have nothing to urge against or. Kramer but time will show that he does not nor can he from his relations command the situation at the Springs and detrimental results can but be chargeable to those who have been instrumental whatever May have been other Short comings in turning Down or.
