THAT $100 GRAFT.
JUST A MJSINKSS I'KOl'OSITIOX.
Versailles, Mo., August 5, IWK
The charge that the editor, of the States
mans demanded 100 to support the
Repudlican ticket is not true, but on the
other hand Mr. llakvr, in his letter to the
committee, said that the editorial support
of the Statesman of the Republican ticket
was not for sain anil ooitlil not be bought
by any man or any nart v. He said his
paper is always ready, anxious and will
ing to support the ticket, editorially.
The claim that the Statcsmnn laid in was
for all strictly advertising matter, such as
advertising meetings of the central com
mittee, carrying the ticket which is an
advertisement and all advertisements of
speakingdates.'big rallies and so on. Jt

H. N. Liftman, Chairman.
I. M. Sciianni'.I', Secretary.
The above is copied from last week's
Versailles Statesman simply because it
verifies charges made that the States
man editor invariably hides behind some
body in his effort to slip out easy when
cornered. That his $100 graft was a bold
break he now realizes, and he wants the
matter covered up and tries to do so by
the use of the chairman and secretary
of the Republican County Committee,
linker wanted to hold the committee up
for J 1 00. To do fo he had to have some
pretext to work on. Now we will digest
the above card.
"The claim laid in was for all strictly
advertising matter, such as advertising
meetings of central committee, carry
ing the ticket, and fill advertisements of
speaking dales, big lallies and soon."
Now here is where the graft scheme is
slipiied thiough, while the "brainy"
editor of the Statesman dodges behind
the gent'emen allowing their signatures
to be attichcd to the unique raid.
In the first place, the central committee
of any party always has charge of cam
uign funds willi which to defray the
legitimate expenses of their campaign.
They order their advertising in accor
dance with the funds set aside for their
uses. Assessments arc made and these
committees manage this feature.

ticket,' is covered by the funds in the

indirectly, Ilaker's 100 graft is cleverly
concentrated in "carrying the ticket"

to see. The giiiftcr tried to hold up the
