DODGE TO ELECT THE
Since our last hsw, tire Command
ers of tire Wnrs&y Brigades of Morgan
County have, eTidentlf,' determined
upon a new system of tacties. At least
they arc not seen button-holing eaci
other in public places, counciling as to
the most efficient means they can em
ploy to defeat the . Prohibition County
Ticket, as was. their wont during the
two weeks previous to oar ls?t week's
issue. It is evident that they have had
a meeting ome bere under the cover
of night,' and .niuiually agreed not to
evince any feeling of fellowship or 1
brotherhood where the gaze of the pub
lic might rest upon them. In thi-. way
they hope to .give tke "lie" t oar as
sertion! that they are acting together
to effect a mutually wished for result
This is a shrewd docfg ; asdy if well
carried out, might be successful m de
ceiving the people ; but it must fail be
cause of the fat that they are bolh-tts--ing
the eame argument, singing the
same song to the same tune. .
Eoth of them have been busily en
gaged in circulating falsehoods wbicn
they hope to mate-; successful in mil
itating against the financial welfare of
the Conservative. We are not surprised
at Tinkerton doing this, because ofthe"
fact that the. Conservative has always de
nounced., him as a political trickster;
and! shyster ot the first water ; but
Gaylord, a man whom the Conservative
has defended time and again, resort
ing to- falsehoods to injure us simply
because wewoald not be an instrument
in his hand's- totrse tte Democratic par-
tv to-secure the5 election f the Whis
ky Republican Ticket, remin'ds us very
much' ofilie story of the vlper'fSat bit
the man that warmed it into life in' Sis
bosom. ! '
Thc-objcet ; of ,'tlils article is to con
Iradict ttfo-fies that the above "wor
thies-" Have been' peddling, but which
Gaylord' is tHe" falrier of," and' whom we
shall hold responsible.
The first one "ia that the tlConserva
tive refused to publish a Call fora Dem
ocratic Coanty-Conrention.'" Gaylord
knew every time he gave utterance to
tjUfrassertiofj that he littered a Ke.
If; S:t?w that we were always wilting
to-pulsh a t'alrfor a Democratic Coun

Committee of Morgan County; at one
cf i3 meetings, should determine that
Fceha Convention should be called!

to this matter teas to rewe to retrynizt

we did db; aad persist in-doing. In
support of the "tact that we always- e2
pressed a willingness to publish a Call
for a Democratic County Conventionj
w-e publish the folloiring certificate
from:foar of the leading Democrats of
this- Township, with' whom-' we had
eonversations on the matter, and who
have not been identified in-anyway
with-the ; Prohibition mdyementr-aid

Kaylordi published in the Herald as a
member of the Democratic Central
Committee,, aad as saying that we did
make such-refusal r
McCONNELSVILLE, July 11th, 1870.
TJTer the undersigned Democrats cf
Morgan. Township, Morgan County, O.,
hereby certify that we have heard Jo
tIh A. Kelly, publisher of the Conser-
r-Mive, express himself on the question
f poLiitkitig a Call for a Democratic,'
I County Conrention for this County ;
ami that he has always, in onr pres-
such a fall whenever the Democratic
Central Committee of Morgan County
should, at one of its meetings, deter
mine that such a Call should be made.
We further state that said expressions
of 2Ir. Kelly were made at divers times
during the two weeks preceding the
6th of this month.
YV. A. SILL,
F. W. MOOKR,
It. A. FINKEKTON,
B. i POWER.
We think this certificate will con
vince even the most ardent followers
of Gay lord that the assertion that we
refused to publish a Democratic Call is
fake, when it i3 remembered that B.
i Power is one of the signers of that
Call, as published in the Herald, and
we will not argue the question further.
, But, in the P. S. attached to the Call,
ag published in the Herald, it is assert
ed that that same Call was handed us
for publication, and that we refused to
publish it. This is a falsehood, also.
We never saw that Call until it appear
ed! in the Herald. " Gaylord did hand
us a Call, drawn up in his own hand
writing, and bearing only the signature
of William Sherwood, as Chairman of
tlie Democratic Central Committee,
also in Gaylord's handwriting, which
we did refuse to publish. Our reason
for refusing was because we knew Gay
lord had no authority to issue the Call
for publication. .TV knew there had
been no meeting f the Democratic
Central Committee to gife him or any
one authority to issie a Call. We
knew that Gaylord was" trying to run
the whole machine himself without
any authority from anybody. We
knew he was endeavoring to make a
cats-paw of the Democratic party for
the purpose of defeating the Prohibit
tion County Ticket and electing the
Whisky Republican Ticket. We knew
these things and told him bo, and told
him further that neither the Conserva
tive nor the Democratic party could be
used for such purposes. We told Lim
that if the Democratic Central Com
mittee was called together, ancLat
Euch meeting, it should issue a Call, or
mthoiize anyone to issue a Call, that
the Conservative would willingly pub
lish it ; but that we would not recog
nize him as the entire Democratic par
ty. , .
Shortly after this, Gaylord set him
self to work and wrote out the Call
that appeared in the Jlerafd, and sign
ed t he names of the men to it that ap
pear there as the Democratic Central
Committee.' We have not been able to
find out whether or not he rtas author
ized to sign any of these names, except
the name of J. B. Goudy, who says he
authorized Gar lord bo to do. B. F.
rower says he did not authorize Gay
lord or anyone to sigB his name to ap
pear in the Herald. He says he to!d
Gaylord that he was willing to sign a
Call to appear in the Conservative, but
that he was in favor of calling a Con
rention in an orderly raanaer by call
ing the Committee together, as we pro
posed. William Sherwood, Chairman
of the Cofsmif tee we are told, b not in
the State, (tte beliete he is in rennsjl
vania,) and he,- certainly, . could not
have authorized iiyone to -'.sign his
name to a Call to appear in the Herald.
We have not seen O. L, Hall, and do
riot Jsrow whether he gave Gaylord any
tuch authority or Hot. - William A. ilc
Connel, a member of tire' Committee,
it seems, was not consulted on the
question at all, as no mention has been
made of his name relative to the mat
ter Probab'y Gaylord thought Mc
Connel would be averse to his scheme,
aad, therefore, he did not think it ne
cessary to consult him.
On last Wednesday morning, We
were told that this Call, got up in the
manner we have stated, had been han
ded in to the Herald ofSce for publica
tion, aad this was the first iukling we
had of it existence, Gaylord's- asser
tion that we refused to publish' iC ftf
the contrary olwitbtftoding. We
considered the situation' of matters all
day, and finally concluded there was
but oHe course of action left for the
Democracy of this- County ta pursue
relative to a County Ticket, and that
was to rally to the suppsrt of the Tro
hibifcion County Ticket, which- the
Whisky Kings ol both the politicafpar-
tics were working to defeat. Conse
quently, on- Thursday morning, we
wrote out the Frehibition County Tie
ket and told our foreman to place it'afc'
the head of the local column of our
iiieirouiunion to. i lCKens COmTOS
edof as good men as there are in the
ebusty. Besides possessing the qualities
necessary to make them good and cffi
cient officers in the common meaning of
such terms, tik-y are avowed support
ers of a principle that cannot fail to en
dear them to all good'citizcns, whether
Democrats, Republicans" or Prohibi
tionists. This principle is that" "the
laws shall be obeyed." For years past"
Morgan County has been ruled by a set
men that give countenance to viola
tion? of certain" of our laws, both State
and Municipal. If not violat'orstfcerr-
6elves, many of our officers have been
men that dated- not say openly they
were in favor of the enforcement of our
laws against those who have beeirahd
are violators. Such a state of affairs
only leads to Anarchy, tho worst form'
Government ever known to exist,
and it is the duty of all good,; law-abi
ding citizens to rally to the support of
OUJ" law's by supporting men for office,
who are not tied down, hand and foot,
political alliances" with those who
re openly and 'notoriously violators cf
The Campaign" this Fall' for Couhty-
Ofileers, has now' but one issue, and
mat whether or not the existing Li-
qjaor l aws shall be enforced'. It is not
q?tesion aa to whether Democrats or
ReptbrictMis shall triumph, but wheth
Law or Anartliysh-ill triumph whe
ther Christ or the Devil Ehalf reign;
whether the voices of the orphans and
widows, made so by the illegitimate
vending of Liquors, shall be heard.

ST A man by the name of Nel
son, living neur Jlorganville, at
tempted to commit suicide by hang
ing, on last Friday morning. Ho
was discovered in time to prevent
the accomplish ment. of the deed.
Temporary insanity is tho suppos

committed suicide by cutting his
throat about tro years ago.
S&" On Friday, of last week, the
Third Baptist Church, (Colored,) of
Putnam, paid McConnelsville a visit,
The object of their excursion was to
raise monev for the benefit of their
Churek. They had lately built a new
church building at a cost of about elev
en hundred dollars-, and their member
ship numbering only about thirty
souls, it was deemed advisable to re
sort to Some such means as this to help
the good cause along. About sixty or
seventy of the colored citizens of Zane-
ville composed the excursion party,
counting men, women and children
and they had a very pleasant time of
it in our Grove. Their conduct here
elicited the praise of our citizens gen
erally. In the afternoon, they were
addressed with words -of welcome and
good council by Ee'v. Cather, of the
McConnelsville Baptist Church ; and
ho was answered, with thanks to our
citizens for the kindnesses shown
them, by Rev. U. Johnson, the Pastor
of the Colored Church. A contribu
tion of between $30 and $ 40 was raised
amongst our citizens for the benefit of

Miss Winn's horrible death on Mon

all that knew hef. ,
Being m a hurry she took the
carbon oil can and portfed a little
on tho firo she was kindling, when
it exploded, dashing the can up
against the ceiling and tearing it to
pieces, covering the girl and the
floor with flame. She lingered in
groat agony lor fifteen hours ao
I obtained some-cf lfio oif out of
the same barrel and tested it, fan-
ding that it would ignite very
much belov the ftCaridard fixed by

and that ot the most terrible kind
went to the store ol the man that
sold it, and iound the following
