Will you kindly announce that Mrs. Helen

It were much the best thing to do
ould Washington county get tho
choosing of the delegates in primaries,
and with a candidate in the field, hav
ing a majority of delegates, go to
Zanesville on the 31st, comblned'on her
man. The county is too big and too
strong a political factor not to agree
upon a man to enter the lists and en
gage fairly to win.
Jn the matter of delegates to St.
Louis Washington county has two men
in the field. Col. Nye and J. II. Grafton,
both good, square men whose Repub
licanism or loyalty to McKinley can
not bo questioned,
Our neighbor down town has seen fit
to suggest that Mr. Grafton is not the
man to go to St Louis, and has so
.Btated publicly. Mr. Grafton asks re
ply and in reason and fairness we grant
Tub sentiment that Washington
County should present a candidate for
Congressman at the Republican con
vention to be held at Zanesyillo on tho
31st, is growing perceptibly. Many
leading Republicans approve the idea
for tho honor and glory of old Wash
ington, in the event it has a candidate;
and local pride and loyalty, demand
that Washington county'B 50 votes be
eolld for him, whoever ho may be. In
this connection it may truthfully be
stated that the aspirations of Ex-Sena-tor
Theo. F. Davis are oeing favorably
looked upon by a considerable follow
ing, and itois probable that his name
dame will be presented tp the conven
tion, backed by the solid vote of his
Jiome county as long as ho has the
shadow of a chance of winning. A
homo candidate should be favored as a
matter of local advantage, and every
Republican in the county should stand
by him' regardless of personal feelings

Nye, who served as comrade in the
army, was made n member of his staff
when ho was elected Governor and
whoso selection could not but bo agree
able to tho Republicans of this county ,
and to Gov. McKinley himself.
"As to Mr. Grafton, who seeks tho I
honor, no objections would bo raised
to mm as a gentleman ana Kepublican,
but ho cannot meet tho requirements
we have indicated above, and tho
friends of Gov. McKinley insist that
Col. Nye be presented as Washington
County's candidate for delegato to St,
While I did not exactly suggest this
sort of an announcement, I accept it
and agreo to cory line of it down to
whero my Register friend says "But
he can not meet the requirements we
hayo indicated above" etc.; meaning,
pf 'course, that I have not been known
primarily and always ns a McKinley
man." This assertion or implication,
every Republican who knows me,
knows to bo utterly false, and no one
knows it better than the Editor of tho
Marietta Register. Prior to tho ap
pearance of this unfair and uncalled
for editorial I was not a candidate to
tho extent that I would not have with
drawn in favor of my friend and neigh
bor, dol. Nye, or any other good Re
publican. In other words, if Col. Nye
had spoken to me prior to my "an
nouncement" in tho Register, I would
have gladly stepped down and out,
thus escaping the ugly chargo of the
Register, as one "who seeks the honor,"
and the implication that I have not al
ways been loyal to McKinley.
As the matter now stands, haying
been so charged by the Marietta Regis
ter, I must, in justice to myself, make
every honorable effort to secure my
election, and thus vindicate myself
with the loyal Republicans in the
country precincts, where, as a result of
my not having mixed in politics to an,y
extent, I am not as well known politi
cally as I otherwise would be, and to
this end the following facts must bo
Some time ago a gentleman from Col
umbus close to McKinley, called on mo
and urged that I como out as a candi
date for deleeate to the National Con
vention. This I would not agree to do,
and so stated to the gentleman, until I
would be assured byCol. Nye that he
would not be a candidate. I saw tho
Col. the day after the interviow men
tioned above and he was emphatic in
his assurance that ho would not bo a
candidate, and that ho would support
me. Tins the Col. admits now, but
says at tho time he promised me his
support he thought tho Convention
would be held in San Francisco and
that he had a right to change his mind
etc. After getting Col Nye's assurance
that ho would support me I spoko to
Mr. E. R. Alderman, of tho Marietta
Register, asking him if he would sup
port me. His reply was "I don't know
whether I w ill or not." My reply was,
"I'erhapsyouare a candidate yourself."
His answer to this was "Maybe I am."
Harrison at this time had not with
drawn. Now as to whether tho concluding
lines of what Mr. Alderman evidently
considered my "quietus" viz. "And tho
friends of Gov. McKinley insist that
Col. Nye be presented as Washington
County's condidate for delegato to St.
Louis" be true, or that the editor of the
Marietta Register constituting himself
and staff as the Republican party
of Washington Co., thereforo tho only
friends of Gov. McKinley, merely as
serts it, remains to bo proven, as will
be done by the vote of the delegation
we send to Zanesyillo whether it be
chosen by Primaries, Mass Convention
or by tho Executive and Central Com
mittees. If true, and tho delegation selected
prefers Col. Nye, or any other good
Republican to myself, I will not be a
candidate before tho District Conven
tion, but will do all in, my power to
help select as a delegate to St. Louls.any
one that our delegation may agreo up
on, and In either or any event I will
still be as I always have been, and as
I believd every Republican in Wash
ington County is, for McKinley first,
last and ull tho time.

Ir some of tho members of the Ohio
legislature had not been playing hook
ey last Friday the bill making It a'mis
demcanor to wear hats in theaters
would hayo gone through with a run
becauso such members as were thero
allowed the rules to bo suspended in
order to get at it. The bill piovidcs a
penalty of from 42 to 510 for each in
fraction of the law. This is hard on
some of tho hats that women wear, for
it would bo doing scant justice to them
if thoy had to pay 5100 a performance.

A Split In tho Convention.
Kso.wille, Tenn., March 20. What
was probably the crisis in tho Tennos
seo gubernatorial campaign was
reached Thursday, when nearly two
thousand democrats split into two con
ventions, one of which endorsed R. I.
Taylor for governor. This is Harris'
home, and his friends are confident of
carrying the county for him. Tho dis
satisfaction in his own county it is
thought, will assure the nomination of
Tne Alabamn Delegates.
Birmingham, Ala., March 20. Dr.
Mosely, chairman of the republican
executive committee, Thursday stated
that thero'have been 38 county repub
lican conventions held in the state up
to date, and of these 20 are antl-'Mc-Kinley
and ten for McKinley. With
I some contests pending, he does not bo
lievo that McKinley will have over six
delegates in the national convention
