Continuing the report of the
contest for the Post-mastership
of Logan, we commence where
we left off last week.
In parenthesis, we regret to
discover that the Republican
Gazette is asleep on this question
and we are compelled to furnish
the awake people with all the
important proceedings in this vi
tal local matter.
On Monday of last week, Mr.
Pursell sent on to Washington
his Bond. His bond is $8,000.
His bendsmen made affidavit to
a valuation of $28,000. ,
. The Bond was not entrusted to
fthe mails, but was sent by ex
On Saturday of laBt week a
number of copies of the Ports
mouth Times were received here,
in which paper it was charged
that Pursell was a Deserter from
the A.rmy, and inviting the at
tention especially of Col. Weldy
to ibis fact.
Col. Weldy went to Columbus
and procured the following cer
tificate from the Adjutant Gen
eral's Office, and furnishes it to
gether with the United States
Laws bearing upon the. nutter,
for publication, as follows:
We are glad that the war rec
ords of all us great men are to be
investigated. Our esteemed Re
publican eotemporary says
Cleveland was of military age
and asks where was he when the
war was on. He informs us that
he was studying law. This was
about the time Post Master, "Par
sell was milking his mother's
cow in the back yard, and the
officer in command of his Com
pany was marking him down a
deserter. It was about this time
that Al. Brooke pulled his teeth
to avoid the draft, and at the ex
act time when ex-post master
Rempel resigned in the face of
the enemy tor the good of the
service, and lor the dishonorable
work of chasing Democrats from
their hemes, supported by Wis
consin soldiers. About the same
time that Cleveland was keep
ing out. of the armyT Blaine was
concocting his schema for land
grabs and railroad subsidies
which made him rich. "Tho edi
tor of the Sentinel was organiz
ing the home guards, and a vast
army of us heroes were all ma
king records which will make
handsome frames around the
quiet, order'y, gentlemanly con
duct at this time, of the Demo
cratic candidate for President.

the dnties of Editor and Business
Manager have been assumed by
Mr. Willard, late of the Mother
Mr. Pursell's retirement from
the paper will be sincerely re
gretted by the patrons of the
liazette, which paper he estab
3ished and conducted for many
years with editorial ability and
business success. His withdrawal
from the paper is on account of
his inability to give any time to
editorial work while attending to
the exacting duties of the office
to which he has been appointed.
3Ir. Brooke retires for a similar
reason, having his time entirely
-occupied in conducting his hotel.
We welcome Bro. Willard to
the fraternity. He is an excel
lent gentleman, a pronounced
Republican, a scholar of literary
ability, and a business man of
correctness, exactness and dis
patch. We hope his adventure
into the journalistic arena may
be pleasant to himself, acceptable-
to his readers, and profitable
to the incorporation.
We extend the fraternal hand,
proposing a fair fight, assured
J hat honorable terms of .opposi
iion will be proffered in return.

' In the meantime Bob Kitts
miller - and Stradly attempted
to get action by the G. A. R.
Post, protesting against Pursell
as a deserter, from being commis
sioned. Failing to get the Post
to act, a petition was circulated
and signed by a number of sol
diers, objecting to Pursell's ap
pointment on account of his be
ing a deserter.
In the meantime Mr. Pursell
explained to the authorities that
he ran away from home, went
into the army when a child not
fourteen years of age, and that
his parents look him out of the
service and kept him at home,
the record of his desertion being
simply a record of absence with
out explaining that he was not
of an age subject to military du
tv, and that he was kept from
returning to the army by the le
gal right and parental hand of
Palriotijni was paramount for
a few days; and we were expect
ing to have an execution of a de
serter at any moment. But the
Pursellians began digging down
into the war record of the oppo
sition, and the graves developed
such a stench that nearly all the
active opposition got sick at the
stomach and went into their tents
for rest and repairs.

It is said that Col. Friesuer
was once appointed Postmaster
at this place, but that his bond
was held and. not sent off, and
tf.us he failed to get the place.
We are told lut Dave Miller
was also appointed Tpslmaster,
put his bond in the post Npffice,
but that it was held, and in- ih
meantime Rempel continued.
To guard against a repetition
of such an accident occurring,
Pursell's Load was tuniled from
Athens, and his commission was
ordered .sent by express to Gen.
Grosvenor at Athens.
The bond evidently went thro'
all right. Ou Monday the com
mission came to Athens, and on
Tuesday Emmit Tompkins, Esq,,
brought it up a..d handed it to
Pursell, who at once notified Mr.
Case and arranged with kirn to
take possession on Saturday.

help to keep the office up to its
present standard of efficiency,

Deputy Sheriff Hamblin is in
Ward township carefully watch

The miners are receiving subsist

publish the declaration1 of prmci

and by this means the policy of tol

actual union and co-operation in the
endeavor to establish democratic
opinions in the control of the coun

iff question to tho secondary place
which it ought to occupy, and to
put tho question of administration
reform and honest government in
the first place, where it properly be
longs. Let the reader carefully scan the
whole of these words, and every
clause of every proposition,- and he
will find that these are' the ideas set

"Cleveland for President.'
The man who recieved, on the
sedond ballot, 683 votes out of a
total o820, in a Democratic Con
vention, is unquestionably the
choice of the party. We opposed
the nomination of Cleveland, the
candidate; we shall faithfully and
earnestly work for the election of
Cleveland, tho Democratic stand
ard bearer. The Democratic prin
ciple is the Democratic party, and
this is infinitely greater than tho
men it se'ects or rejects. Every cit
izen bos a vote as every savage has
a knife to protect himself and his
Interests. The Irish American who
would" trust tho Republican party
with his vote, after twenty years of
experience, would be 5s foolish as
the Indian who has trusted its ras
cally agent on the resei valions.
IriBh-Ameri':ans would take an ab
surd step im abondmg the Demo
cratic party before they have tried
it, and just as it is coming, into
power. Let them wait four yeirs
and see. Mr. Blaine can afford
to wait, too. There will be some
hundreds of thousands more Irish
Americans to vote in 1888 than
there are now. And we shall ad
vise them to vote then, as we advise
now, for whatever party they be
lievo in and against whatever par

Pittsburgh, Pa., July 16 A Can
ton special says a point on the Val
ley railroad, two miles east of here,
tonight was the scene of a terrible
wreck, in which one thousand ex
cersionists from this city rairacul
ouslyescaped with injuries, so far
as known, while it is thought half
a dozen or more persons are under
the wreck dead.
Employes of theAultman & Co.
machine works had their annual pic
nic at 'Juyboga Falls today, and over
two thousand went on the excursion,
made up of two trains of fifteen
cars each. The first section ar
rived at Canton at 7 :20 p. m., and
while one hundred fathers, brothers
and sisters were at the station wait
ing for friends aud relatives on the
second section u hatless messenger
came running down the track cry
ing that the train had been wrecked
and many killled and injured.
The scene which followed was of
the wildest description, and when
the wreck was reached, men, wo
men and children ran around wring
ing their hands and looking for
their loved ones. Nine ears were off
the track and in water four feet
deop. The cries of the injuaed were
heart-rending. Hundreds of will
ing hands immediately set to work
and soon found that not more than
twenty-five were injured, but it
was impossible to say how many or
who was killed. About a dozen or
more are missing, and may be un
der the ears, and nothing definite
can be known until the wrecking
train arrives, which is now on its
way to the scene.
The engineer says the wreck was
caused by the track spreading. The
engine went over all right, but tbe
first car jumped the track and eight
others. The tram ran along the side
ot the track for two hundred feet,
throwing the occupants from one
sido to the other, and finally jumped
a smallembankment and lauded in
throe feet of water. Tho doors were
cut open and the people got out.
Three doctors are on the grouud at
tending to the wounded, several

It makes the blood run quicker
to read the news of tho rescue of
tho aurvivers of the Greoly arctic
exploring expedition by Lieut.
Schloj', commanding the rescuing
steamer Alert. A party from the
Alert on the 22(1 of Jane found
Lieut. Greely, and seven others, of
his foree, in Smith's Sound, about
the 7Sth or 79th parallel of latitude.
One of the party died under an am
I piitation after his rescue, on board
th6 Alert. Seventeen of the twon-t3'-five
p-ersons composing the expe
dition died of starvation at the point
where Lieut. Greely was found.

to the whole party. They wel'e en
