A Word to Our Patrons.
We tlace the Frobibition County
Ticket lit the head- of oar paper this
week. In so doing, we nrge on all our
readers the necessity of their falling
into line and giving it tbrir hearty sup
port. The Campaign this Fall, for
County officers, will have but one issue
ia it, and that whether Whisky or Tem
perance . shall triumph. . There . has
been a complete understanding effect
ed between the Whisky Rings of both
-the old political parties of the County,
and both of these Rings are earnestly
at work with a common object in view,
to-wit: the defeat of the Prohibition
County Ticket. D C. Finkerton, the
leader of the Republican Whisky Ring,
and James M. Gaylord, the leader of
the Democratic Whisky Ring, have
shaken hands, buried the hatchet, and
now stand-shoulder to shoulder, fight
ing under a common banner.
The only hope these old command
ers of the Whisky Brigades entertain
for" success, is in being able to draw off
from the Prohibition County Ticket
the support of the moral and christian
men of the Democratic Party, by put
ting in nomination a so-called "Demo
cratic County Ticket. To effect this
end they have falsely and maliciously
circulated a report that we refused to
publish a Call for a Democratic County
Convention; and then, by trickery and
fraud, they induced five of the mem
bers of the Democratic Central Com
mi t tee, Gaylord being one of them, to
issue a Call, through the McConnelsville
Herald, for said Convention. We sup
pose said Call will appear in this week's
if sue of the Heralds It will appear, pro
bably, tinder the head of "New Adver-
If we know the substantial and mor
al men of the Democratic party of
Morgan county, and we think we do,
this dodge of Pinkerton, Gaylord &
Co., to defeat the Prohibition County
Ticket, and elect the Republican Whis
ky Ticket, which is the object desired
by both of them, will prove abortive.
It strikes us that Gaylord, with all his
ability to falsify and work in the dark,
will find that the Democracy of Moe-J
gan will not be made a cat'a paw of to
pnll Whisky Republican chestnuts out
of the fire. .
It is the duty of every well-wisher of
society; every advocate of Christianity,
morality and humanity, whether they
be Democrats or Republicans, to rally
to the support of the Prohibition Coun
ty Ticket, and teach snch men as Pink
erton and Gaylord that men of their
principles will not be countenanced.
On Tuesday, there was some local
excitement here over the trial of one of
our citizens for vending beer contrary
to the provisions of our Town Ordin
ance. The affidavit was filed on Fri
day of last week, and the defendant
desiring to fight the matter, the Court
postponed the trial until Tuesday,
thereby giving the defendant ample
time to send to Zanesville and get
Judge Harsh to come down and defend
him. Marsh was on hand at the ap
pointed time; and, after the forenoon
waa spent in getting a Jury, J . T. Crew,
who was acting Prosecuting Attorney
for the Corporation, discovered that a
great many of the most important wit
nesses for the Corporation had not
been subpoenaed, and that 6ome who
were subpoenaed were not present.
Crew immediately made application to
the Court for a continuance of the case
until said witnesses could be obtained,
which the Court refused. At 2 o'clock,
1. M., the examination of witnesses
who were present began; and, after an
hour spent, the prosecution rested.
The defence introduced no testimony.
Mr. Crew then announced to the Court
that he would not claim a conviction
on the testimony he had been able to
bring before the Jury. The Jury,
therefore, declared the defendant "not
guilty" without rising from their seats
This state of affairs caused no little re
joicing among the beer venders, you
bet ! But it was short-lived. A second
thought showed them that the object
in bringing Judge Marsh down here
had not been accomplished. The truth
of the matter was that they had club
bed together and raised money en
ough, one hundred dollars, to get J odge
Marsh to undertake to defeat the case
in the expectation that the defendant
would be convicted and an opportuni
ty thereby offered to take the case into
the higher Courts and have the validi
ty of the Ordinance tested; and, the
Corporation failing to make out a rase
nnder the Ordinance, the opportunity
for getting the Ordinance before the
higher Courts was lost, and Marsh was
entitled to hi money. These second
thoughts are said to hare caused a spas
modic contraction of their jubilant fa
ces. In justice to Mr. Crew it becomes
us to say that the case did not fail be
cause of any fault of bis. The case was
made when he was requested to- go into
it. He done all that ar.y Attorney
could have done under the circumstan
ces, and his management of the' case
was highly eulogized by some of the
ablest lawyers fat this county.

IQ. Eev. Ilenry Cooper, of the Mc

How is this fob IIigh ? Knowing
that there has been an increasing de
mand for a good quality of Cigars, at
reasonable prices, and believing that
the prices now asked are entirely too
high, or the quality too low, our towns
man, C. E. Cochran, has undertaken to
manufacture a No. One Cigar, which
would meet the requirements of the
people, and has met with remarkable
success. HIb "Havana Tips" just fill
the bill, being far superior to the gen
erality of 5 cent Cigars, yet retailing
two for 5 cents. He also furnishes them
to dealers and retailed, who sell at the
same rates, nis Stogas are alwiys up
to standard, and his Chewing Tobacco
cannot be beaten in quality or price,
being reduced to meet the demands of
the times. Mr. Cochran informs ns
that he holds himself responsible for
everything sold by him, or in other
words, satisfaction insured or "stamps"
refunded. Don't forget to call and see

"Battle of Oil Sprikg Rtrw.'V On
last Saturday morning it became
known throughout McConnelsville and
Malta that there was to be a "Platform
Dance" near the mouth of Oil Spring
Run; and, consequently, some of the
"bloods" of botn towns repaired thith
er. Unfortunately, on their way, or
soon after they got there, they run
afoul of some "A. No. 1 Fighting Whis
ky," which recalled to their minds an
old feud that has been existing be
tween Malta "bloods" and McConnels
ville "bloods", from time immemorial.
As might be expected under such cir
cumstances, it did not take long to kick
up a fight, and a single fight proved to
be but a prelude lo a general battle.
For about a half an hour the pleasant
pastime of knocking each other down
was indulged in, when Malta succum
bed to the superabundance of "sand''
possessed by McConnelsville. It is sai-1
that not a McConnelsville boy received
even a scratch. 'One Maltonian receiv
ed a pretty severe blow with a stone,
which came near breaking his jaw
bone. Malta indulged in some talk
about arresting McConnelsville for a
riot, but when it was mentioned that
McConnelsville would retaliate by pro
secuting Malta for selling the whisky,
the whole matter was dropped.
Farmer's Insurance Company,
Amos 8. Whitaker, well known to many
of our citizens, is the Agent for Morgan
county, for the Farmers Insurance eompa
ny, Jelloway, Ohio. A statement of said
company's assets may be found elsewhere
in thie paper, and we invite special atten
tion to it.
This company was formed by some enter,
prising eitisene of Knox county, Ohio, who
were determined to get up a sate company,
and one, too, that did not require to be sua
taiced by extortionate rate of premiums.
The plan of this project waa to combine low
rates with perfect indemnity, and at the
same time to pay the Stockholders a fair re
muneration for capital employed. It is un
necessary for us to say that the project was
a success, for this ia well known to be the
ease by all who have augbt to do with In
ru ranee matters. The company was orig
inally a mutual company, but in June, '68,
it was changed into a Joint Stock company
with a paid np capital of $100,000 00, all of
which was invested in Botes or Bonds, se
cured by First Mortgage on wnenenmbered
Beat Estate, worth at least double the am'
ount of money loaned thereon. All will
concede that a more -tare investmentof the
funds of the company could not have been
made. This company cor fines its business
to the insurance oi safe risks, that is it does
not insure tumble-down and hazardous city
property. Its business is with the farm
erf, and with them alone. Anotker feature
about this eempany is that ft insures the
full value of personal property, and incase
of partial losses, pays the full amount of
damages to buildings, without ded acting
one-third, as ia the custom, with most com
panies. Mr. Whitaker will travel the County
through the coming season, and he will give
the most satisfactory explanation of the bu
sCness of the company to all that fee! inter

Its Management—Card from
As Directors of the County Infirma
ry, we feel it our duty to say, in regard
to.the chastisement, at the Infirmary,
of Michael Grady, an obstinate and in
corrigible boy of about fourteen years
of age, that, after a thorough investi
gation of the case, we entirely approve
of Mr. Simpson's (the Superintendent)
course; that, under the circumstances,
he was fully justifiable in doing just
what he did. The inmates of the In
stitution, with the boy's moth.er, say
that he did right in administering the
correction; and that the father of the
boy, for so untruthfully representing
the case to the public, deserted to be
rigidly dealt with. There never was a
ease more completely misrepresented. The
stories to the father that the boy was
and beat within all inch of his
life, and that Mr. Simpson Was drunk,
are all malicious raisenooas. au oi

The Grady family are transient pan
pers, and with their experience and
shrewdness in imposing upon the pub
lic, reached this place traveling from
Bangor, Maine". They were found des
titute and sent to the Infirmary by the
Trustees of Morgan Township, some
weeks ago. They were allowed to re
main here up to this time, by their re
presenting that they had written to a
brother of his, some place in this State,
who was wealthy, and that no doubt
would send them money to take them
to him, now that they were destitute.
They first represented that they came
here to get help from two brothers of
Mrs. Grady's, then again that it was
not them, but a brother of Mr. Grady's.
We, for a while, sympathised with
them, being in a destitute condition,
and all the time considering it policy
to wait a few days so that they might
get funds and thereby save the coun
ty the expense of shipping them away.
The only resortnow ia to immediately
return them on the public where they
have a legal residence.
As a general thing, Township Trus
tees should, for the sake of saving un
necessary expense, (as they do in oth
er counties), whefl applicants are not
legal residents of the county, d'sposeof
them without sending them to the In
firmary. For the last four years those
whose duty it has been and is at pres
ent, to look to the management of the
Institution in the interests of the coun
ty and the inmates of the place, have
claimed it to be the best conducted in
stitution of the kind in Eastern Ohio,
and that it is not an unfounded claim.
Directors in the above time, from sev
eral other counties in Ohio, have visit
ed and expressed themselves to that
effect. Also citizens of the county,
who are interested in the wellfare of
those who have been so unfortunate as
to become their public charge, have
expressed themselves proud of the fact
that Morgan county was behind no
other in looking to the interest and
comfort of its poor.
Dr. Brown, Dr. Hedges, A. Kahler,
CoL Ball and others, have lately visit
ed the place and have remarked that
nowhere could be found a better In
firmary than Morgan count has. .

Prohibition and Republicanism
In last week's issue of the McCon
ntUville Herald there is an article
stating that the Prohibitionists of
Maine have resolved that the Re
publican party of the same State is
good enough temperance party lor
them; and, consequently, the third
party movement there has been
abandoned. The Herald wants to
know why the same plan will not
answer the Prohibitionists of Ohio.
The Temperance Times answers tho
Herald, and all others, thusly:
'Iftbe Eepublicans of Ohio de
