BACHMAN CHAPEL LETTER.
Purity in i zAitics the Need of the fimes.
County Executive Committee - Other
Sligh. .\larch 24.-.\Mr. Editor,
%asn' t there sonic kind of a law
Vassed at the last sesion of the leg
re nrohibitin- any one tron
it-atig %with intoxicating liquors
within a mil of any voting precinct
1 election days? It runs in my
d that there was a measure of
thi kind on foot and that it became
- law. This is a good law. but it
dotes not reach far enough. It
u,Jht to read that any candidate
who is asking the suffrage of the
people. found treating with intoxi
cating liquors or even lending
mionev to anyone knowingly for this
purpose shall be guilty of a misde
m'eanor, and onl Conviction he fined
not less than Sioo nor less than
ninetV days on the chain gang. My
friends. beware of those who ar*e
trVing to influence votes with
liquor. WVe've got to be more con
servative at the ballot box if we
want our country to prosper. Don't
vote for a man just because he's a
gootI fellow or you have a special
liking for him. The time nmust
come when men must go mto
office on their merits and not be
cause'ther can do more hand-shak
ing. tell more big yarns and laugh
more all over their faces than some
other good men. Let's put good
men into office and there will be no
need of investigation.
What do you think of the Ob
server's suggestion to reduce the
county executive committee to one
member to each township? What's
the objection to one member from
each club? We have forty-five
clubs and it seems to me that the
committee would be more of a rep
resentative body with forty-five
members than it would with only
eleven. If this tribunal were cost
ing the county anything I would
say that it were best to cut down
itsi membership. Let's never make
a reduction in the number of our
officers who are willing to serve
I believe that the magistrates and
sub-commissioners ought to be
taken out of the primary. It is a
hardship for men who only get a
salary of from S25 to $75 to be
made to go to the expense of can
vass:ng their townships and county
at a cost of fully half the amount of
salary they expect to receive. Let
the governor appoint upon recomi
mendation of the county delega
tion. This is the wav they were
chosen before they were put into
the primary and I think we had as
gocd officers then as we have now.
In what I said about the chain
gang investigation I meant no re
flection whatever upon Referee
Dominick. He was appointed by
the court only to take testimony in
the matter. This is as far as his
jurisdiction extends. He has per
formed his duty as well as any man
could have done. F. H. Dominick
made us a mighty good representa
tive in the legislature and can be
depended upon to stand by what he
conceives to be right.

Miss Olive Feagie. our teacher
at Union. was sick the first of the
week, but only missed two days
from her school. The enrolment
went tip to 49. this winter, the high
est point it has ever reached.
For the past week or ten days
there has been a general rush in
plowing. The land is being better
prepared than I have ever known
for a number of years.
Mr. Gus Wilson, who has been
in Johnson. Tenn., for the past
year, is now at home. He has the

Strauss' Tavlor house.
Thursday, the 31st, is Green
Thursday. How many of our good
old Dutch women are going to be
able to get a mess of greens from
their gardens as has been an old
custom among them ever since I
can remember. T. J. WV.
