William Griffith, Jr.
The Enquirer publishes a
jommuuicatiou this week from
Wm. Griffith, Jr., of Gallipolis,
describing a scene which never
occurred, lo show that wo have
a grievance against hioi. 1'er
sonally we care as liitlo lor
Mr. Grifii'h as for the veriest
'lice" that walks the streets,
lie is entitled to j'ust that much
consideration. It -any person
wants to be psrsuaded of tho
falseness of Mr. Urifli'h's scene,
Mr. Langley i3 in McArthur
and can be interviewed.
Now, we will tell the public
hy we ma do the shot at Mr.
Griffith 6ome two weeks 6ince.
Mr. G. was engaged in this
county optioning lands and
published a pamphlet saying
(his was the richest mineral
country in the world. The
pamphlet contained maps lor
the drawing of which he want
ed to charge tho G. McA. & C
li. li. Co. $1,000. The debt
was denied, he sued, was beat
en, and then commenced a war
ostensibly on Mr. Langley, but
really on the railroad, lie
wrote us two letters, libelling
and abusing Trest. Langley
and overjbudy connected with
the road and soliciting us to
-j'iin with l:im in his warfare.
We declined. In addition to
he letters lo us he has wri'len
numerous letters to capitalists
and prominent citizens, con
taining gross lilels and down
right lies as to the character ol
our country and our mineral
resources. Among others he
wrote to Dr Wol:e, and after
all the boasting he has done
about our mineral wealth, he
advised Dr. Wolfe to have
nothing to do with tho road;
that it was sure to fail; that
there was no mineral in the
country; that he Dr. Wolfe-
owned the only vein on Hie
whole route of the road that
was fit even for ordinary heal-
ins purposes. The man who
w ould write such a letter to an
other who has been toasting
Ins shins at a tire made from our
ordinary hill coal for the last
twenty five years, is both a
knave and a fool. Auain, no
sooner had Presl. Lingley re
turned from Philadelphia, and
it was announced th it the Vin
ton Furnace Co. had made a lib
eral subscription than ho wrote
to Mr. Jaynas, the principal
owner, letters similar in pur
port to the one re.'erred to
above and trying to dissuade
from making the investment.
Knowing these things we said
two weeks ago that the fellow
was gtully ol gross libel, he was
in Mr. Lmgley's power and he
should apply the corrective
without mcrcv.
Private Soldiers
Should remember that Philip

a knapsack, cartridge box and
gun, and sleeping at night on

but an army blanket. He
shared with you the dangers,
li-coml'orts and labors of a
li.ird-loughl war, while Mr. Bel
lord, his opponent, was at home
eating his solt brei-d and plum
butter, and organizing Knights
of the Goldeu Circle to dis

t f your supplies of bread,
meat and ammunition. It is
for you to choose between
these two men, which shall be
honored by your vole wheth
er the enemy iu the rear or the
iriend at the lront. We have
already promoted two private
soldiers to office in this couivy
Kaler and LLdlaud and we
now offer you another. Our
experience has proved that
these privates make the best
of officers, and having served
lailhiully iu a subordinate .o
siliou lor poor pay and hall
rations, we now a-k your influ
ence in promoting Private
Philip Keck to the office ol
Auditor of Vinton county.
Advgrtisixo reminds people of
things they had been wauling all
along, but hud forgotten all abouk
When Philip Keck took a sol
emn oath to servo bis country
in the army, and shouldered
Ins knapsack, cartridge-box and
gun to do hi? duty in pulling
down the rebellion, you said in
effect, il not personally to him,
Good boy, Philip; your coun
try will honor you for your no
ble sacrifice. The pay is poor
and you may be killed, as
many have been before you; if
j ou should be, the country will
revere your memory as one
wholell a martyr to Ins coun
try and to liberty; but if you
should be so fortunate as tore-
turn, be sure that we will never
lorget our living heroee, and
the best that we have is yours,
for you will have preserved it
all to lit!" These treasured ex
presions of sympithv, on many
a bloody battle field, and m
many a weary niarcn and
cheerless bivouac, were more
precious than gold to the poor
foot-sore, discouraged soldier,
and upheld him in theyiiuo of
Dial, and made him ccunt all
his dangers and difficulties as
naught compared with the es
teem ol his friends and conn
try men, mi l led him to lay
dow n his lifc rather than betray
their confidence. Citizens, this
is the way Philip Keck, with
his life in his hand, for three
years upheld Hie confidence
you reposed in him. He is loo
much of a man lo come whin
ing around you now and asking
you lo redeem your promise
by voting for him for Auditor.
It was not by reason of your
fair promises only precious as
they were that he. was In
duced to undergo all his trials,
and he would not compromise
his honor as a soldier by innk
ing such demands upon you.
The private eoldicrs of the
country have a right to expect
you to fulfill those promises
without being reminded of
Uiem. As Keck proved true
to yon and the country in its
darkest hour of peril, standing
between you and tho storm ol
war, so we now ask Ihut you
taiid by him. He has eaten of
the black bread of the public
service cheerfully, and bo we
ink that he may be mado par
taker ol some of the dainties.
In voting lor him you wiil not
only be redeeming your prom
ise lo tho volunteer private
soldiers of the Republic, but
you will be assisting to one ol
l he most important offices iu
the county a man who has the
ability to fill it with credit to
himself and profit to you. Be

Nursing the Panic.
Tho Enquirer is wasting a
good deal of ,lsoft sawder" on
the M. & C. li. R. hands who
are just now working oa hall
time in consequence of the
late money panic. It mistakes
the class it is dealing with.
lliev are neither children, fools
nor paupers, but intelligent
self relying men, and they
know th it the shops, sida tracks
and yards are now full Of work
which must be done. The
panic has caused a temporary
suspension, the company being
obliged lo let up to accommo
date their bankers who furnish
them money (for everybody
knows tuat the M. & U. is push
ing improvements which at
present eat up more than their
earnings), and thus do their
share to allay the panic instead
of nursing it as does Wm. Al
len and all the Democratic pa
pers of the country, in hopes
of somehow advancing the in
trests ol the Democracy. It
must be a foul parly that fa'
tens on the mislortunes ol its
country; but they are not de
ceiving any person by their
crocodile tears; for men ol
sense can see that their labors
are all to prolong the panic,
and not to secure a return of
confidence, so the banks can
resume their advances to the
company, and the men resume
work on lull lime.

Read! Read! Read!
Money! Money!
Money! Money! WHERE IS IT?
The law requires the Commissioners of each county
to file in the ollice of the Clerk of the Court, a state
ment of the receipts and disbursements of the Treasury
and a report of their proceedings. That icport is now
on file in tho Clerk's oflice. It is m ide out and attest
ed by the Auditor, and signed by each one of the Com
missioners. It shows that our county taxes have in
creased under Democratic management since 18(59, when
Mr. Felton was Auditor, from 72,000, to 105,502.83
an increase of Thirty-Three Thousand Fid Hun
dred and Ninety-Two Doliirs and l'J(jhti-Ei(jlit Cents.
FAKTlIERj'thc report shows that for the year end
ing the 30th day of August, 1873, there was collecled
on the county fund (the fund for contingent expenses),
$l(i,885.77; there was disbursed, ?9,92l).); and there
was remaining iu the County Treasury on that day,
the 30th of August, 1873, .J.O i.j.OJ). On and about
that time, and now, the Treasurer is endorsing on the
back of county orders, "Xot paid for want of funds"!
and they are thrown back in the pockets of the holders
to draw six per cent, interest. AY hence this discrepan
cy between the report and the actual cash on hand in
tho Treasury. AVhat has become of that '),.od?
The report shows it on hand, and the Treasury shows
that it is not now, and was not at the time specified, t
is, all recorded in their own handwriting, and can be
examined by any citizen who will call at the Clerk's of
fice. The Vinton county Court House stands in need
of refo m in the interests of the people. The ring want
to be kicked out -now, and next Tuesday the people
will have the opportunity. Elect Philip Keck Auditor
and tho cash will agree with the books or elc the peo
ple will know the reason why very suddenly!

no politician, no office-seeker,
but a plain, honest, sensible

it may be s lid truly that it is

but the office seeking the man,

How Much Whisky
How Much Whisky Will It Take to Make
an Ordinary Man
We have interviewed Mr.
Reuben Phillips n'nee Ihe pub'
licalion of the Enquirer con
taining a card signed by hi '
name, but not written by him,
as he in eflect acknowledges.
We call tie particular atten
tion to the Wording of that
card, partly because it is an
other emanation from the gift
ed pen of the Rev. Harrison
Lyle, anJ more particularly be
cause it dct.ies violently what
we never asserted that Phil
lips told us Harrison Lyle was5
drunk on the occasion rcf nel
to. What we did say, auJ wliaC
our recollection bears us out
tn repeating, was i Lis, that tho
Rev. Harrison l'yle spent Iho
alternoon wi'h Phillip and
other boon companions in ouo
of tho 6aloons cl Aliensville,
drank five or six time?, end af
ter en per, al cl inch, lined tho
hymn, led in prayer and ex
horted sinners to repent and
lice from ll tir wicl-ed wnys
This much ot s'.ahmcnt Mr
Ph'ur2s says is true,am lias
been made nol only to us but
lo others. To tho statement
that fiva or . s'x ghiS3 s of
whisky will nial-.e an ordinary
man drunk Mr. Phillips objecls
and says he did nut say it
Our recollection is that he did,
but he asserts that he diJ not,
and is most firm in his ( pinion
because he says he could not
have said so, as he is sa'is.lel
that, that much whisky would
not make Mr. Lylo drunk!
This is figuring the matter
down to a line thing, find wo
do not know but what it is a
li tie worse for Lyle if we con
cede, on t li 3 grounls stated,
that our recollection is at fault.
We leave il to an intelligent
publio to decide whether, if
the Rev. Harrison Lyle or any
other man,epends a jolly after
noon in a whisky saloon, drink
ing five or six glasses ol whisky
with such companions ns nro
found in those places, if ho is
not, to say the least, just a Ut
ile bit too drunk when evening
comes to lead a congregation
in worship nud stand up in (ho
altar and exhort 6inners to
mend their ways? We think
he is, and wo further think and
say, that the example of one
such man, repeated lime and
again, year in and year out,
will do more injury lo a church
and a community, and is a
worse example lo set before
the coming generation, is moro
debasing, than any cr all ct
the sins in callcndar.
What we have said of Mr.
Lyle is true and is notorious
in Richland township, and wo
do nol believe that there js a
mau, woman or child in the
township w ho did not know all
the lads we have recited, and
more too- long ago. Some of his.
Democratic friends are now
very anxious lo shield him, and
Mr. Phillips stated to us lhat he
was a Lyle man and would not
have told us w hat he did if lie
had known we were going to
publish it; that he and Lyle
were good friends, and he
would never have told it on
him at all, but it was such- a.
good jjke ho couldn't keep it;
that he would rother we. wouki
say nothing more about if and
didn't want his name c&flrrected
with it. But Die public is etir
titled to the facts and they
havo them. In reply to the
abuse and epithets, we are uot.
damaged iu fact, teeliag, or Ian-,
cy by ihein. lht;y are- the.
words of the Rev. Harrison
Lyle, and like all curses, will,
go home to roosJ.
