For the Eaton Democrat.
Ed. Democrat: In Bro. Lake's
last cornfhtriiication he most pos
itively ignores the interview re
ported by your correspondent "D
Q.," and without pretending to
otfer evidence ot the fact, .inti
mates that I am the author. The
denial and assertion is however
in keeping witL the character ot
the man. "For instance, he states
that I made a false Income Re
turn. After an examination
made he authorized Mr. Stephen
officially say that they were
satisfied that my return was cor
rect; but afterwards, to suit his
purpose, he iutimated that he is
not satisfied. In the first in
stance he seems to have been in
terviewed witb his own permis

not compelled to accept my re
quest to investigate, but alter
consenting, he as a man poesesseu
of honor has no right "to repudi

Bro. Lake is great in figure",
and a train gives us a few. He
has now made the statements of
the amount of fees reported by
me to the Secretary of State,
both represented to be official,
yet materially differing, from
each other. He has made three
statements of amount of fees re
ported by me to Auditor of State,
no two of which are alike, al
though represented to be from
my official report, which he in
every case claims to have before
As Bro. Lake has referred
1 . n a
your readers to reports ox oiaie
officials, I pro: ured genuine cop
ies from theee officers; and in
the Report of the Secretary of
State, as I have heretofore stated
I am unable to find a single fig
ure referring1 to the amount of
fees. Bro. Lake's way of fixing
my lees in Ibis report is mali
ciously absurd. Me Jib's just as
much right' to say $2 per deed
and call that my report. He
states that I admit my fet-a to he"
90 cents per deed This is false,
for he knows that they range
from 50 cents to 90 cents, and
will average less than SO cents.
The only way I have tf app roxi
mating the amount received trom
this source is by thepages of rec
ord, and tor the benefit of Bro.
Lake I will state that 1 have tor
Several years in all reports re-.
uiring the amount of fees, esti
mated deeds at 80 cts. and mort-
caflre6 at 90 cts. per taee. And I
will further state that for the
year ending July 1. 1869, Deeds
occupied 732 and Mortgages zy
pages; and at '.be above estimates
amount to $848,40, From other
sources say $50,00. Total, $898,-

In rfrftiif!ft to this- last amountt"Tted,
if it differs materially from my
original, then I admit an error
in that. But as the report pass

it is not strange that tt should
appear different iu print from ray

that has so much troubled my
kind and generous friend. Fur
the year ending Jan. 1, 1870,
Deeds occupied 660 and Mortga

$796,40, From other eources
$35,00. Total, $831,40. In order
to include everythiag oeyond

income from these sources at

Now I would ask who has "act
ed fool-hardy," had "shame un
corered,'' "used low slang," Ac.
I will farther state that in con
versation with a prominent mem
ber of Bro. Lake's church, (Mr.
Walters,) who like many others
is most heartily disgusted with
his course, I authorized him (Mr.
W.) to say that Lake might select
a committee himself to call at
my office and investigate oar dif
ficalty, and if they found any
thing legally against me, I would
be responsible, provided Lake
would aerree to the same. It
useless for me to say that they
did not come. I know of no oth
er reason tnau mat &ro. iaxe
failed to find the number dishon
est enough to promise a report
to suit him. Bro. Lake closes
his last by saving that he intends
to "fiarht it out on this liue." If
h"e had said "these lies," he would
have been nearer correct. So
