It was it matter of congratula tion that only 300 or 4X) men re sponded to his call to march on Wash ington, and the court added : "I think (4od the working peopb or tho suffering peoplo did not rc spond." - Cxev bad proposed to bring 100, (x) nodule to WiiMhiiiKton to set an example bv breaking a law. "Who in the world should be pun foiled fur violation of tho law if you lirmhl not. Mr. Coxov?" he linked. "I did not violate the law," said Cmrnv..

At the age of four years, young Meserve removed with his parents to Nebraska, where he remained until tne car 1884; then taking Horace Oreeley s advice "Went west to grow up witn tue country." and at the age of seventeen years cast his lot with the pioneers of Columbia county. Mr. Meserve has idcntilled Him self as a thorough wide-awake business man , and a worker in every sense of the word. Believing Columbia county pos sessed within her boundaries natural ,ma teriul wealth that would in Hie near future make her one ol the most prosperous and richest counties in the state, with prudent foresight Invested his earnings in well se lected timber lunds and other valuable property, and today stands among the first taxpayers of the county. Air. Meserve from 1887 to 1883 ixicupied a position as nrst- grade teacher in our public schools, and wus later a member of the county boara i education. In 18U1 he was appointed deputy county surveyor, and has faithful. y per formed the duties ol that olllcc to the pres ent time. Iu his surveys he has been just to all and partial to none. In fact his motto seems to have been, "Hew to the line and let the chips full where they may." As (lunation land surveyor he stuuds among the first. Citizens will further their own interests by entrusting the duties of this olllco to so competent a candidate, as the work already done by him guarantees further accuracy and satisfaction.
