Another Victim to Whisky.
HAMDEN, O., April 1, 1874.
f aW Aaa a aW HaaM atoareV
We have beiore us another
good temperance Uciure Id tbe
way of, a drunken man killed
boat 12 o'clock last night.
While the pay train wai re
turning from Fort8moutb,when
near Jacksou, the train ran
or a man lying on the tracs,
catting him all to pieces. They
topped the train and found
him.- U had bottle ol whit.
ky.whlQb was broken, of courie.
The man was drunk at the time
or be would not have been lay.
Jog on tbe track at 12 o'clock,
on etih.a 'night, lie is sup
posed to be one ol the section
men, who, alter petting his pay,
go drunk in Jackson, and wan
on hia way borne, and fell
Where bo was killed. This in
one more case for tbe Adair
With all due respect for the
Corresponding Secretary of the
Lades Temperance League,
we published no such slale
tnent she attributes to us
In the Enquirer of this week,
therefore so far as we are con
cerned , the denial which fol
lows, does not apply II ow
tver tbft statement as publish
ed by' us as true, if the Com
mercial did happen to make
trifling mistake in its ac
count of the same affair. Now,
we again suggest that a com
mittee of ladies wait on Bowen
lor prayer, and if he stands up
to the scratch, we will record
that fact. We don't see why
he Is entitled to any different
treatment than that accorded
OKeefe, if he do)8 cloak his
liquor transactions .under a
'religious newspaper." No fa
voritism; serve them all alike.
Since t lie above was in type
the Cor. Sec. of the League ha
stated that the communication
lit appeared in the Enquirer
was not published as she had
written it, but was altered with
out her knowledge or consent.
Thi statement in tbe Enquir
er ibis week about the finan
cial condition ol our village is
false in every particular. The
corporation is not in debt to
the amount of one cut, and

THE Y1NT0N RECORD:
Offiolal Organ of Vinton County.
hCKbCANT to notice the Re
publicans of Elk township and
McArthur met at the Court
House last Saturday afternoon
lo place in nomination town
ship and corporation ticket.
Tbe convention was the largest
ever held in the township
larger in numbers than many
county conventions we have at
tended and as 5 consequence
an unexceptional ticket was
nominated. Although Ihe tick
et was nominated as a Repub
lican ticket uialUrshave since
transpired which ' entirely
change its partisan character
so lar as the corporation is con
cerned and make the issue a
plain question of free nhisky
and open violation ol the law,or
sobriety and enforcement ol the
law. The issue was pretty fair
Iy joined in the convention and
ihe partisans of Iree whisky, be
ing dissatisfied with the result;
have bolted and joined wiih ihe
whisky wing of the Democra
cy and put in nomination a
mixed ticket in the interests of
iree whisky. This leaves the
temperate w'ng of the, Democ
racy with no alterative but to
vote our ticket or to place in
the field a new ticKet, and
we invite them to adopt the
former method, as the Utter
woulJ only divide the tuniper
ance vote and lead to a certain
victory for the free whisky par
ty. We the more readily ask
the temperance Democrats to
adept tliis method as there is
and can he, no political signifi
cance or importance attach to
this election except as it affects
the question of temperance.
Below we liive the ticket :

A uiTLi caucus of from ten
to fllteen personV Republicans
and Democrats, met at the law
office ol saloon keeper's Attor
ney last Monday evening. The
meeting was called without
any publio notice, and only
few of tbe elect were invited
This caucus then arid there pro
ceeded to nominate- mixed
ticket in the interests of free
whisky, and they are now in
viting tbe public and trying to
force the Democrats to vote it
We hope no man will be de
ceived as to the object of this
caucus, or allow himself to be
coerced into endorsing it by
the presentation of any side
insues. 1 The whisky ring, in ad
dition to the poverty and mi
ery, it has heaped upon individ
uals and families,' baa sought,
and to great degree has sue
ceeded, in corrupting the poll
ties of the county. VYe but re
peat what ev-ry well informed
citizen knows when we6ay the
influence of the whisky ring i
tor sale every Fall to the high
est bidder.and politicians stand
in terror at their power The
people now have an oppor
tunity to rebuke and break
down their influence in McAr
thur. It is a square fixht be
tween whisky and temperance
Shall we return to the filth and
mire from which the good wo
mn havejust lilted our village
Thin is the question to be set
