THE B. ;es, Rycc's Venom. With his characteristic disposition of unfairness, and as a manifestation of malicious hatred of me, Royce has again and in his last paper, published of and about me a cruel, libelous, and defamatory article. In this article I am charged with nearly all the crimes known the to criminal calendar, even to chicken stealing. This is only one of the parts or acts of a system of persecutions, carried ou by this man Royce and his political henchmen against me that has con tinued ever since 1 wasappoluted Sec retary of the Democratic Central com mittee of this county. Were I guilty of the crimes lie has so charged me with, does it promote the public good to carry on this kind of a warfare against me? Does it subserve the public peace? Is it fair' 1 have a wife and children whom I love as fer vently as does any other man, and this system of persecution is very aggra vating to nie aud at times almost un bearable, and at the same time it has been a source of great humiliation, mortilicatlon, and heart broken sorrow to my family. This system of abuse so carried on by Royce agiust ni3, he armed with a'paper aud 1 with none, Is what Royce calls true journalism. It was my misfortune to have an Interest in some hay south of Speed and I sent some teams down there to get It, In the broad sunlight of day, and by misttke, got some hay from a man by the name of Cox, and imme diately my enemies prevailed upon him to bring an action of lireenya galust me fur so taking this hay. This Is one of the greatest crimes pa raded against mu by Royce. Tills case was at one time tried and judgement rendered against ma and Hie Supreme court reversed the same, and In the decision, said in very plain language that "The testimony hi this case showing larceny is very slight." Judge Gelger. ami no more just judgeiives, a man who lias been three imit'selecled to the honorable position of judu'i: of this district, said the same thing at the last term of court in this county, "That there were none of the elements of larceny in the case or In thecireiimsiances connected w ith it."
