Mr. W. C. Irby's Statement.
To the Editor of The I.aureus Adver
My attention has been called to an
article in The Advertiser of the 2nd
inst. entitled "Mr. Kelly Howell's State
ment" which requires a reply. I re
gret that you seem determined to mis
quote me and use other methods to
place me in a false light before the
good people of my county. I do not
care how much you light me if you will
only confine yourself to the truth. The
following is the statement you claim
Mr. Howell asked you to make for him.
I "In last weeks advertiser appeared the
'In the course of his speech last Fri
day Mr. W. C. Irby, Jr., gave expres
sion to a rather serious charge. He
said it had been told him that the had
er of the Prohibitionists in Union was
running three blind tigers; whereupon
Mr. Richey asked him to name the man.
Mr. Irby replied that Mr. Howell. at
Phllpot's store, would tell him. This
matter is respectfully referred t<^ the
police authorities in Union. It see ns
that the violation of the law must be
very open and flagrant for it to be,
known here. We have no idea who \
'the leader of the prohibitionists in
Union' is, neither do we care we1
n. c'y wish to call attention to the in- ]
I. Howell called at the Advertisers
office Thursday and requested tha: we
publish a most emphatic denial of the
alleged utterances. He made verbal
statement to the effect that he ha.: not
told Mr. Irby that 'the leader of the
prohibitionists in Union was running
three blind tigers' ar.d denounce.: the
charge as maliciously false.' He stated
that Mr. Irby had misquoted him: but
that he did make to Mr. Irby such a
statement as this: From appearances
in Union there was a mar. engzz-:-i in
selling whiskey who had taken an ac
tive part in the prohibition movement "
Mr. Howell told me what he request: :
you to publish and has given me a writ
ten statement of which the following
is a copy, and I ask ai". fair and reason
able persons to compare i: with the
statement you have made and see if it
doe.* not look like you have made a
false statement with intent to injure
Mr. Howeii's statement to me.

in Union and that 1 was offered sonic
whiskey by him. That Rev. L. M.
Rice was the leader in tho fight for
prohibition ami any statement that 1
said that Rev. L. M. Rico was selling
whiskey was absolutely false."
(signed) R K HOW Kid,.
When Mr. Mowed says over his sig
nature that I was mistaken as to the
number of blind tigers I must admit
that I could have been mistaken.
When I saw that you had misquoted
me, I went to see Mr. Howell to toll
him that I would demand that you cor
rect the mistake as I knew that he did
not mean Mr. Rice and 1 would not
have quoted what he told me if 1 had
thought he referred to him. He told |
me that he had already demanded that
yOU correct the mistake ami i waited
to see what you said.
You said you did not know who "the
leader of the prohibitionists in Union
is." If you do not you ought to, for if
I mistake not you was working for bis '
paper at the time and it looks like you
were determined to twist my language
into a reflection upon a minister.
No one could blame Mr. Howell for |
being indignant when he was reported
as reflecting upon his minister.

Editor's Note: As the reading public
will readily discern the purpose and in
tent of the above statements, when
considered With all the preceding arti
cles on the subject, very little comment
by us is necessary. Tho matter re
solves itself into this form: The Adver
tiser reported Mr. Irby as saying "THE
leader of the prohibitionists" and Mr.
Irby claims ho said "ONE of the lead
ers." We credit Mr. Irby with hon-;
esty in his claim, and so doing have no
hesitancy in granting htm the above
space to make it. Our version has ap
peared in a previous issue. Concerning
what Mr. Howell told Mr. Irby.it is
not in our province to discuss: we were
to deal with Mr. Irby's PUBLIC DEC
LARATION only. Mr. Howell's ver
bal statement to The Advertiser con
forms in substance with his signed
statement above if we read it aright.
There is but one point at issue, namely:
whether or not Mr. Irby said "the" or
"one of the" leaders of the prohibi
tionists, and Mr. Irby's foregoing card
closes the discussion in The Advertiser.
