THE OLD SCOUT
Proposed by Gen. Sherwood To
IF MILITARISM IS TO RULK
Let Ui Have the Ileal Thing In Earnest
Is Ills Notlon-A Mure l'lctnreiuue
Character Than Theltoagh,
Toledo Dally News: Gen. Isaac K.
Sherwood said today In reply to a
question as to the proper person in his
ludmrtent for the Democrats to name
for vice-president that he was In favor
of the nomination of "Bunaio uiu,"
(Colonel W F. Cody), and gave reasons
for his position as follows:
" 'Buffalo Bill' is a much more pic
turesque character than Teddy Roose
velt. He Is a better man both physi
cally and mentally, and a better wing
shot and bareback rider, and he has
commanded more rough riders.
Roosevelt has courage without either
discretion or Judgment. Buffalo Bill
has all these soldier qualities. He was
a successful scout, which requires the
highest form of courage combined with
mental alertness and discretion. Roose
velt was only under fire once for a few
brief moments, and the official report of
his much advertised charge on San
Juan Hill shows he inflicted but slight
damage on the enemy. The official re
port of General Torell, the Spanish gen
eral In. command, made to Captain
General Blanco at Havana, shows that
the Spanish army lost only two killed
and seven wounded.
"Such an affair as this In the war of
the Rebellion would not have even oc
cupied five lines In the dally Journals
at the time. Buffalo Bill, (Colonel W
F. Cody), has a heroic record as a
scout In the most desperate and peril
ous service of his country, and he lms
killed more Indians single handed than
T. Roosevelt killed Spaniards with his
whole command. If the country is go
ing stark mad on militarism let us put
up a real bloodletting hero against the
mock hero of an opera bouffe campaign,
In only one respect is Buffalo Bill In
sufficient to T. Roosevelt, and that Is In
self-laudation. Buffalo Bill was satis
fled with one Journalistic reporter to
depict his wild exploits as a scout, but
the tax dodger of Oyster Bay kept no
less than six highly talented Journal
ists and magazine artists to gild his
achievements with the glamour of fic
tion." Gen. Sherwood says Buffalo Bill Is a
member of the Grand Army of the Re
public, Is a true type of the real soldier
as war Is conducted today and has
rendered a hundred times as much ser
vice to his country, as Teddy Roosevelt.
It Is" claimed that Roosevelt wrote a
book. Well, Buffalo Bill too wrote a
book of merit that has enjoyed greater
sales by the thousands than Roosevelt's
If the merit of the candidate de
pends upon his killing qualities, it
can be said of Buffalo BUI that he not
only served three years in the great
est war of modern times, but he served
also with great distinction in three In
dian wars and he killed Yellow-Hand,
the giant chief of the Cheyennes In a
single handed combat, while on the
other hand Roosevelt never got near
enough to the Spanish army to get even
a naked eye view of any victim for
"If we are going to have militarism
run rampant," said Gen Sherwood, in
conclusion, "let the Democrats nomin
ate Buffalo Bill, and they will have
a real hero."

SUIT TO FORECLOSE.
Loutzenberger Bros, have commenced

M. Hendricks and Amanda Hendricks

chattel mortgage on bar fixtures. At
torney Lewis P. Metzger represents the
Attorney A. W. Agler, representing
H. H. Rueggsegger, of Wllmot, appear
ed before the county commissioners
Tuesday morning with a claim for dam
ages amounting to $75. Rueggsegger
says that while he was going over a
bridge at Wllmot his horse got Us foot
stuck In a wide crack and broke its leg.
Ho therefore demands $75. The com
missioners are inclined to think that
if there Is any liability It belongs to the
township trustees for It Is their duty to
do all repairing on bridges that do not
amount to over $10. All this required
was one new plank and, the trustees
will probably be asked to. look after tho
ASK FOR A RECEIVER:
The Savings and Loan Co., through

Willis, et al. Tho plaintiff asks for the
foreclosure of a mortgage and in the

City Solicitor Otto E. Young, of Mas
slIIon, on Tuesday afternoon, brought
suit In common pleas court against the
C, L. & W. railway for an Injunction
and an order from the court to comnel
the railway company to cut their tracks
down to the grade of the street. The
petition says that the company dlsre
garded the grade of the street at the
place where the tracks run on Cherry
street ai me intersection of Summit and
Washington streets and first raised the
tracks several Inches above the grade
of the street. This was done without
authority and after it was all over they
began to get ready to make another
raise. This month men were put to
work and the tracks boosted over two
icci wilier una me company now
threatens to raise them up so they will
be six feet higher than the street. This
was all done without authority and the
city now asks for an Injunction to re
strain tne railway from raising the
tracks and also for an order compell
ing them to put the tracks down to the
grade of the street. The court granted
a temporary restraining order and fixed
tno bond at $500.
