Hon. L. T. Neal and his Critics.
The Jackson Ilerald attempt
ed last week with much ado to
answer Mr. Neat's letter to Mr.
Bowen in relation to his salary
as Congressman. It exhausts a
column of space, most of which
is devoted -to praise of itself,
but we must say that it does
not answer one 6ing.e"poit-ot
Mr. Neal's letter. Uoweve
there are some things in the ar
ticle to which we will reply.
In the first place, ijt says the
Record has taken lip the de
fense of Mr. Neal (n drawing
his salary. The Record haa
heretofore not saidjone word
in defense of Mr. Neal's action,
lie makes his own defense, and
for all the Ilerald has shown
to the contrary, tha defense is
impregnable. What; the Rec
ord has done in the natter has
been simply to grant a political
opponent a hearing' when his
political friends attempted to
make him a scapegoat to carry
ofl the sins of their candidate for
Senator, lor, notwithstanding
the Herald's assertion that
Judge Thurman has 'relused to
take his increased salary, we
say on the authority of the
Senator himself, thatjthe state
ment id false, .nJ are prepared
to establish it by unimpeacha
ble Democratic authority right
here iuVinton county. The Iler
ald need not congratulate itself
on having the whole Democrat
ic parly to back its one-sided at
tack on Mr. Neal; for while he
is not so widely known as Sen
ator Thurman, be has many
warm friends, and .deserves
'
them, for in point lof repu
tation for moral character, in
dustry, sobriety, and every
thing that goes to make up a
many except in ago and experi
ence, he is, at least, the peer of
the &enafor, while is ijn-
ineasureably the supsrior of
the editors of the Ilerald or
Enquirer, who, in their little
contemptible effort to show a
transient virtue, only bettay
their duplicity. To those who
know all the parties, the pic
ture of J. W. Bowen writing
io Mr. Neal, arraigning his
morals, honor and honesty,
is too absurd to be compared
to anything that has ever gone
before.
But there Is one point, and
only one, whirli the Herald at
tempts to make against Mr
Neal. We notice it, not be
cause there is anvthmg in it,
but because Porter Du Had
way, Democratic candidates
lor Common Pleas J udge, :: the
father of the discovery, and ad
vanced thai theory in his pri
vate electioneering tours in
this county. It is this: that
Mr. Neal could draw hie salary
under the old law that the old
law is not repealed! That is a
little the thinnest proposition
we ever beard advanced by a
man who professed an ac
quaintance with law, much less
a man who aspired to a judi
cial position. It is 60 plainly
false on its face that we do not
see how Mr. DuLIadway has the
cheek to advance it to men of
sense as he has in this county.
A law increasing or diminish
ing an officer's sahry necessar
ily repeals the law which ex
isted before its passage. If
litis is not so, if the old law is in
force at all, it 13 in full force
and Congressmen are not only
entitled to their salary of
$7,500 under the new law, but'
are also entitled to their salary
of $5,000 under the old law,
making 12,500. The truth is,
though, that the old law is of
necessity, as well as by the
words of the new law, repealed,
and if Mr. Du Iladway can't
see as plain a proposition aa
that without some person to
explain it to him, he is not tit
to be a Common Fleas Judge)
and if he advanced such a the.
ory knowing it t be false, in
the hope of capturing a few1
votes, again he is not fit for
the position to which he as
pires. But to return to the salary
business. There is much being
said and written on this subject
by the press and speakers of
both political parties which Is
advanced merely to catch
-at,and this controversy with
Mr Neal is of that class ot stuff.
It was gotten up by thin headed
individuals who think they are
smart enough to fool the peo
ple. For ourselves we are dis
gusted with their professions
ofeiceRsive virtuo. We entire
ly disapprove of the new salary
law in all its features back
pay, present pay and future
pay; but while it is a law Mr
Neal and every other Congres
man has both a legal and a
moral right to the benefit of its
provisions. Mr. Neals says, and
we have no doubt he will make
his words good, that he will
work for its repeal. If he does
that honestly and laithfully on
the assembly of Congress it is
all his constituents can reson
ably ask ol him. When he fails
to do that, he may properly be
arraigned as a salary grabber,
and it will be by his action in
Congress that he will get his
proper credit. In the mean
time, we do not object to him
drawing his salary, for whether
he draws it now or not, the re
peal law when passed will in all
probability be relroactive, fix
the salary for this and future
Congresses, and at any rate
Mr. Neal will not got any more
in the end than the law allows,
nor more than any fellow-member
will finally get, whether he
draws it now or at the end ol
the year. It was a put up job
on Neal in the first place, and
we are glad to say that the
Democrats of this county gen
erally, as far as we have been
able to learn from them by
extended conversations, see
through and despise the trick
and repudiate the trickster, for
know all men that they and
their Central Committee deny
thist tho letter of Mr. Bowen.
was ever authorized by any
action of the committee. In
deed they claim that the first
intimation they enr had of the
matter was from its publication
in the Record. Such being the
case, what we blame the com
mute for, is for not making an
apology to Mr. Neal as public
as was the insult offered in
their name by Mr. Bowen. By
tailing to do so, they show
that while they profess to de
spise the trick, they are will
ing to profit by it.
A Challenge.
Last week we said that
Judge Thurman made but one
speech in the Senate on the
nuliject of the salary grab, and
that was not in opposition to
ihe bill, but to ridicule the
speech of a Republican who
had just spoken against it.
This is a statement which has
been disputed by those Demo
crats who work in secret. Ii
wouldn't do for them to deny
it publicly. Now, to establish
its truth, we hereby challenge
the Democratic Central Com
mittee of Vinton county to
prove by the official record
that such is not the fact, and
for that purpose we hereby
agre, on presentation of the
official record of any other
speech than that referred to
above, on the subject of in
creased salaries, to publish it
in our columns as evidence
that we were mistaken.
We should judge J. S. Uulick
is doing a good business by the
number of Estey Organs he has
shipped to Hamden and Zalee
ki.
The best way to improve the
lot of woman is to put a house
on it and a good mall in the
hodse.
The Democratic Candidates—
Adapted from the Enquirer.
Harrison Lyle is our candi
date for Representative. He
is a talented young farmer, el
oquent and bald-headed. The
boys say he wore all the hair
off of his head carrying a bot
tle in his hat. We are author
ized to deny this. Harrison i?
a minister he is also a farmer
and it was his ,;hime book"
and not a bottle, he carried in
his hat. Lie sang a great deal
out of this book, and one of
the brothers being jealous of
his beautiful voice, preferred
charges against him and had
him turned out of church. Mr.
Lyle is a myrtar and is also a
farmer. There is not a weed
In hia farm. The people should
all go to Allensville and see
his farm. He keeps it in a
blacksmith shop. The farmers
will all vote for Lyle, for he is
a farmer. (They'll vote for him
to stay at home and take care
of his blacksmith shop.)
. W. W. Belford is another in
teresting young farmer. lie
used to have his farm in a shoe
maker shop at Allensville, but
he moved it to McArthur and
has been farming two years in
the Auditor's office. He is "the
best Auditor Vinton county
ever had," and can draw an ad
vertisement fof proposals for
public works with such exceed
ing skill and ability that the
ring can have a contract let to
the highest bid Jer just as easy
as rolling off a log. This is
the best paying branch of
farming. The ring made $970
off of one crop at the poor
farm by it. It costs the people
something to put in the crop,
but what of thai, when ihejhar
vest is so sure, and we have the
best auditor Vinton county
ever bad, who "never blots his
books?:' We almost forgot to
say that Mr. Beliord is a farm
er. Patrick Kelly is our candi
diate fdr Commissioner. Mr
Kelly is a farmer. He Works
on the poor farm. The farm
has been getting poorer every
day since he commenced work
ing there. It is so poor How
that its product won't support
a Martin. One now quartered
there subsists on the county at
large. The people should avail
themselves ot Mr. Kelly's
knowledge in having it brou'ht
immediately into a more thrif
ty condition. lie knows just
how, and where and when it
got in its present fix, and of
course would know just w here
new fences are needed, where
gras9, should be re-soWn, and
where it would now require
manuring to raise black beans.
A new Commissioner would
have to find all these things
out before he could apply the
corrective. Mr. Kelly is a
farmer. If anv farmer don't
believe Mr. Kelly is a farmer
let him go to the Poor Farm
and see how he has farmed it
out to ring favorites.
Farmer McGilllvray was our
candidate for Prosecuting At
torney, but he has moved to
(he headwaters ot Salt Riven
in search of quarters for the
ring.and Farmer Cunning takes
his place.
Ill's Honor, Judge Craig, Our
candidate for Surveyor, is a
