The Grant Party's Sheriff of Athens
Before the re-election of
Long Branch Grant, last No
vember, some of the followers of
that bad man promised the peo
pie that the thieves and plun
derers would cease that sort of
business, while some of the
other and bolder members of
party publicly declared that the
stealings only amounted to a
very small sum if paid by each
man, woman and child in the
land and that the stealings
were correct. A majority of the
people voted for Grant for a
second term and thereby en
dorsed the acts of the thieves
and plunderers. This encour
aged the thieves throughout the
land. They became bolder
and bolder just as soon as the
re-election of Grant was an
nounced. But at this time we cannot
tell our readers of the thieving
that Iibs "leaked out" any farther
from home than in the ancient
and our neighboring county of
Athens (of which part of Vin
ton County was formed.) There
are two Radical parties over
there both endorse Grant, and
both honest. We will call one
the Journal and the other the
Messenger party. Une year
ago last fall the Journal was
victorious in the County Con
vention and nominated Parker
Carpenter for Sheriff; soon
after the adjournment of the
Convention the Messenger par
ty brought out " a fast man"
named A. J. Reynolds, as an in
dependent candidate for Sheriff
of that old and well-known
countv. The "last man was
Here our nen must rest to
permit the Messenger, (printed
in that county), of March 13,
1873, to make a few remarks
about the absconding Sheriff,
which it labored to elect. The
Messenger is an excellent Grant
journal ; the runaway Sheriff is
one of Grant's best friends, and,
to be brief, the greater majority
of the people of that county
would vote for Grant or Fred
erick Douglas, Esq., twice each
year if the Credit Mobilier Con
gress would give them the priv
ilege. But we will give the
Messenger "the floor:"
"The Sheriff of this county,
A. J. Reynolds, has been miss
ing since Saturday morning last,
and since which time nothing
has been heard of his where
abouts. His absence created
no special alarm until Monday,
on the arrival of the 12:21
train from the East, when it
was ascertained that Mr. Rey
nolds had not returned here by
that train, which he should have
done, had he went, as he stated
the evening before leaving, to
Coolville to summon witnesses.
His continued absence up to
Tuesday, court being in session,
aroused general alarm in the
community and brought to light
such "developments as may af
ford, in part, an explanation of
his conduct and flight.
"It appears that Mr. Rey
nolds had borrowed a sum of
money from the Bank of Athens,
giving the Bank his note with
the names of his father and Ja
cob L. Baker as security. The
note fell due several days ago.
and its non-payment by Mr. II
led the holder to mtorm one
of the bail, Mr. Baker, that the
note was due and the Bank
should look to him for payment
Mr. Baker stated to the cashier
that ho never signed the note,
when subsequently, (Friday af
ternoon we believe), Mr. Ii. was
informed of the fact that Baker
denied his signature and liabil
ity, and was told to meet and
arrango tho matter next day,
(Saturday), which he promised
to do. This was, perhaps, the
causo of his leaving, as no oth
er trouble ill which he was in
volved is now known. The
amount of claim held by the
Bank of .Athens., ia ,ve,uiuler
standi $1,200 ;r thereabouts.
Mr. R4 it seems, had also bor
rowed 81,000 . from the First
National Bank, and to this note,
in addition to his own, were at
tached the signatures of his
father and Isaiah Baker. He
had also obtained the further
sum oi $400 from the Athens
Building and Loan Association
of his own, his father's and Ja
cob L. Baker's signatures. It
is supposed that, in every in
stance, these signatures wer
forgeries. It is yet a mystery
for what purpose Mr. It. obtain
ed the money on these notes,
and perhaps will remain so for
"It is, however, proper to
state here that these notes were
first given over two years ago
and were renewed at intervals,
we believe, of ninety days, no
suspicions of the genuineness
of the signatures having been
entertained until the note held
by the Bank of Athens had last
matured, when the attention
of Mr. Jacob L. Barer was call
ed to the matter, with the re
sult above stated his denial
of having ever signed the note.
"In his official capacity, as
Sheriff, the delinquencies which
have been discovered do not ex
ceed $1,000. What other sums
he has appropriated to his own
use will require several days'
investigation to ascertain. The
bulk of his embezzlements, so
far as learne'l, are on collec
tions on foreign executions.
These, however, will have to be
made good by his bondsmen,
Joseph Herrold and Jacob L.
Baker, both responsible, and
men of wealth. It is not be
lieved that, in any event, will
the embezzlement of funds col
lected by him, in his official ca
pacity, exceed $2,000.
"What is most painful in this
matter is the high character
which Mr. Reynolds has here
tofore borne in the county for
morality, integrity and honesty
both in his personal and bus
iness relations. From his boy
hood up he has been esteemed
in all the relations of life as an
upright, honorable member of
society. No man in the county
had a larger connection of re
spectable and wealthy relatives,
and indeed, we can truthfully
add, no man in the county had
reposed in him a broader con
fidence than Mr. Reynolds. Ex
emplary in his habits, and ap
parently honest and faithful in
all his trusts and transactions,
it is no wonder that the com
munity should have been struck
dumbfounded over the develop
ments of the past few days con
cerning him. His aged father,
sincere, truthful, honest, totter-
g over the grave, and his
faithful wife and innocent chil
dren should in nowise be held
responsible for his dereliction,
but should have the full sympa
thy of those whom, as well as
themselves, he has so grossly
The Democracy and Liberal
Republicans of the twelve town
ships of Vinton County are re
minded that it is time steps
were taken to form Township
Tickets to be voted for at the
election on Monday, April 7th
It is very desirablo and import
ant that such preparation a:
organization bo effected as will
bring out a full vote on that
day, as in addition to the usual
Township officers to be elected,
we have also a member of the
Constitutional Convention. U. S,

the several townships of the
County by the Democracy and
Liberal Republicans and by

The case in a nutshell.
In the debate on raising sal
ries the other day, Stevenson
of Ohio caused to be read
letter ho had received from a
Republican constituent, protest
ing against the measure in
these terse words: "A country
over twenty-one hundred mill
ions in debt cannot afford to
increase the pay of its officials."
That is the case in a nutshell.
When a man takes an office,
knowing what tho salary shall
be, ho ought to bo content
with that salary 'till he gets
through with his term of office.

ine country lias become so
used to corrupt and dishonest
acts on the part of politicians,
that the news of a few days
ago that Congressmen had vo
teu to increase tneir own pay
to $7,500 a year scarcely exci
ted a ripple. These members
of Congress when elected
agreed to serve the people at
$5,000 , a year, mileage and
stealings included. Now, in
violation of that contract, they
are taking $2,500 more apiece
per year, and to keep Grant
from vetoing this rascally bill,
they increase Grant's pay to
$50,000 a year.
Twenty years ago there was
no trouble to get good and able
men to go to Congress for $3,
000 a year, and no stealings.
Stephen A. Douglas, ; Abraham

the country was not ruled then

In New York town elections
this spring the Democrats have
carried twenty out of thirty
seven counties, against only
five last year. This result is
as gratifying as it is expected,
and shows that the masses of
Empire State are determined to
sustain honest government, and
cast corruption from the Con
gressional temple, when the
proper moment arrives.
Even the Radical papers are
full of complaints relative to
the horde of office hunters at
