with W. A. Henderson elected as chair
man and Edg-ir Angle as Secretary.
Judge Reeves was endorsed by the follow
ing resolution introduced by Judge
Ri.'soi.vbd by the Democracy of Hocking, County,
Ohio, in mass convention assembled, that we take
the greatest pleasure and pride in endorsing the
official and private character of that distinguished
jurist, John G. Reeves. He has made a most effici
ent, honest, industrious and learned Judge; and
has administered justice without fear or favor to all.
His retirement from the bench would be a distinct
lo3S to the people of this- district. His re-election
would afford to all concerned a pure and impartial
administration of the law. Wo condemn tho ger
rymader of the old district, and call upon all the
people of tho now district, regardless of party to
aid in his triumphant re-eleotion. Tho delegates
from tho county are hereby instructed to vote at all
times for his nomination in tho coming convention,
and we ask tho Domocarcy of the district to join with
us. in his unanimous election.
Judge Reeves responded happilv to tho endorse
ment, and thanked the conrnitteo for the courtesy

Tin: JHETtNCr of the Democratic Central Com
mittee of Hocking on last Saturday was in marked
contrast in point of one man dictation to that ef the
Republican committee of some weeks ago. There
wns no filling up the vacancies just because a com
mitteeman should happen to be absent from the
meeting. There wns not dictatorship that bossed
every motion and every resolution. There was no
perpetuating themselves for two year terms. Tho
Democratic Central Committee were an assemblego
ot tree uorn, tree Americans, witli but the best in
terests of the county at heart. No squabble, no
snarl, no back-bitting. Every man there was
os tull as the other, and his advice went as far.
The delegates to the state convention were not a
slated few about town, but were a good representa
tion from all over the county. They were tinin
structed except to use their every influence against
factions and bossism und dictation in the state con
vention. They will represent the party at that
convention, not any one man, or set of men. They
will do what they think is right, and not what
some would-be boss at their elbow should
dictate to them. Each of their votes will count us
much as the next man to them. Each will be cast
as a full grown man, an Amoricau, and not as the
pimp or puppet of a self-constituted boss. They
arc men of iron and. not of putty. They will blaze
their own way through the forest for the up
lifting of mankind, and along the lines of honor

Democratic Primary Election.
Invkstih.vtion! Condemnation! Incarceration I
Three steps in recent Republican office holding, that
seems to tell the story of the strides in these days
of corruption in high places, nnd our own neighbor,
Athens, seems now to be under the search light.
There is such a halo of political rottenness that
hovers around that city, that it is no wonder it is
imbibed by the fellows around, nnd worked out to
their own angrandisement. It seems that it Is also
in Athens that corruption is so glaring, that the
honest men in high places there, are prompted to
tighten the strings of usage and law to force the
crooked to go straight. A few years ago, one
Aaron Price, Hocking born, but representative of
Athens county, introduced and secured through the
legislature our present state accountant system
which investigates all accounts of office holders at
least once a year. Mr. Price was no doubt prompt
ed to his propo3el law by his personal knowledge of
the skulduggery of hn own bailuwick. So-be-it the
first person to suffer by his proposed law was his old
time politicul friend Winfield Scott, deputy auditor
of Athens county. The state accountant discovered
a shortage of $00,000 in county affairs at Athens,
and iinslly pinned a boquet of $1000 of it most posi
tively upon the lapel of Deputy Auditor Scott, his
having colleoted that amount that ho did not turn
in. Scott was indicted for embezzlement, convloted
und sent to tho penitentiury for seven years. Such
to tho credit of Mr. Price's accountant law that
will make tho next fellow a little shy of wrong doing.
While our Frank Rochester, also Hooking born, was
Stewart of the Athens Asylum, ho established the
only system fair in tho purchasing management of
such state institution?; the "competitive system."
He Baved the state thousands of dollars each year,
and treated every wholesale house alike and gave
them all a "square deal." His system wus a rove-
lation in tho management of state institutions, nnd
and made it hard for his successors whom wanted to
"graft" a little. One of hi sucoiBsors is the pro
sent incumbent, Jerry Carponter, a Republican of
the Dick brand, A comparison of how eeomonloal
iiuiiiv ituuiiDni inn mat uiBuiuuon, ana now ex
travigant Jerry Carpenter runs it, brought on an
"investigation," and the now inspector, Frank
Rochester, is sent to Athens to investigate Carpon
ter. His report hnB not beon made publlo as yet,
nut enougn is Known to give color to the rumor,
that Carpenter has not followed the "competitive
Bystem" so honestly established by Rochester, but
1b said to have used the "graft system" and given
contracts to the fellow that would do the most for
him at any prico. It is the same old etoryj graft,
graft. They learn much of it in Athens, where the
the "trl-umvirute" hold sway, and in AthenB rise
up the men to punish the grafter, for they see and
