COUNTY SEAT REMOVAL NEWS
Unanswerable Articles From the Wayne
County Progressive Citizen.
We heard a prominent citizen of
Wayne county elate recently thal
bo bad keen water hauled from
Twelve Pole, when that stream was
completely covered with a thick,
green scum, and emptied into the
court house well, for the people to
use. Does any one wonder that the
people of Wayne were stricken with
fever year after year? Wring the
court bouse to Ceredo where we
have an unsurpassed water supply.
Something like a year ago the
county court was indicted by oue
of WayDe county's beet citizens,
for maintaining a public nui
sance on the public grounds at
Wayne. The oourt had our sym
pathy in the matter because, un
der existing conditions (lack of
water, etc..) they were powerless
to make better arrangemouta. We
do not know what became of thp
indictment, but we suppose the
court, taking the same view that
we did, declined to push the proe
eoution
A New Enterprise
A friend remarked the other day,
that if the court bouse remained at
Wayne, he was going there and go
into the patent medicine business,
because, he said, when the good
farmers who are used to pure, clear
water at home and who have to go
there as witnesses and jurors and
remain there for four or five days,
and have to drink that beastly water,
it makes them sick, and Chamber
lain’s Colic, Choleia and Diarrhocai
Cure will be in great demand. We
were then reminded of having had
to purchase a bottle of Gooche’e
Mexican Syrup there once, and Oh!
what memories.
The “Wayne Citizen’s Frenzied
Financier” in a recent issue informs
hie reader* that the “Deep Water
Kailroad” i* headed square for
Wayne C. 11. together with other
trutik lines to make that point a
great railroad centre. We all know
that. Wayne has a “great financier,”
for the Huntington daily papers of
a few months ago were inspired to i
mention the fact of the coming and |
going, about twice each we< k, ol
Wayne county’s most successful
financier. It was really a treat to j
llantlhgton to realize that it was
“entertaining a Prince,” and he ,
was not even in disguise. That h<
must be “Frenzied” we judge from |
the uncharitable return the “Wayne
( itizen” makes by its published ref
erenees to the citizens of Hunting
ton as “thugs and cut-throats” who
will certainly do great injury to the
innocent citizens of W’ajne county
should they venture to attend court
within eight miles ot that city.
I)o You Califh On?
The l’rogressi\e Citizen is not so
“blankety” (we refer to size, not the
bad word) big as some, of our con
temponneous concoctions of con- !
ceit, bluster, bluff and bile, and I
claimed trt he “second class matter,”
because we don’t fed called upon to
devote any space to telling u« read
ers all about anybody’s bank, nor
anylfody's anxiety to “swap” for
county claims, nor do we expect to
devote the greater part of our space
to pander to the peisoual vanity of
any self-imagined great man in our
community, by telling you how
much he has done for the county in
way of “pnoifOTiNO its develop
ment,” or incidentally giving you
an object lesson bow a comparative
ly impecunious person, by a little
effort of bis “gray matter” can ef
fectnally grasp the things material
in his vicinity and thereafter be re
ferred to when he visits adjoining
cities, as “Wavne county’s most
successful capitalist.” No, we
“can’t gather tigs of thistles” and
won’t try; but we do hoj»e to
“scotch” a few lies, and point in our
humble way to the facts, so that our
readers may solve for themselves
the question: “Who has lied?”
“It Might Have Been”
Bee Jxy pays it wan some of the
removalist* who burnt his bank
Ooet* any man with an idea above a
raccoon believe that? If it had
been any one in favor of removal,
don’t you believe he would have act
tire to tie court bouse? It oould
have been burned just an easily.
Could be burned any time. They
never have water enough on the hill
to pnt a tire out, and reason and
common sense will tell you that if
it had been a removalist he would
have Ptuck his torch to the court
bouse.
But that was not true. It might
have been that some warm, close
friend'of Bee Jay’s used that torch,
without Bee Jay’s knowledge, of
course. This friend may have found
out that Bee Jay carried a good in
surance on the building and fixtures,
and he may have believed that the
banking busioes at Wayne was not
very profitable. He may have rea
soned, too, that there were strong
indications that the court house
would be moved, and that the less
property Bee Jay had on the top ol
the mount, the better Bee Jay would
be off, and as long as Bee Jay
swims, everybody else may sink, so
far as Bee Jay cares.
Now we do't’t say this happened
this way, but we say the reasoning
is as good as Bee Jay's, that some
removalist lit the torch.
Wo Hiiiltf the Court House
Some months ago, when the
move to re-locate the county hph*
was begun, the people were told
that the citizens of Ceredo and
Keuova would furnish the funds
for the erection of the yew court
house in Coredo, providing the ad
vocates of the removal wore sue
ceseful at the election tc» he held
February 6th next. We want to
impress on every citizen of the
county that the citizens of the
sister towns, Ceredo and Keuova,
stand now exactly where they
stood then. We still propose to
build the court house without cost
to the county. We know what we
are talking about and mean just
what we say. The Wayne Citizen,
a little, unreliable sheet published
at Wayne, whose chief and only
object, as everybody knows, is to
forward the private and personal
. interests of a certain citizen of
that town, as against the interests
of the public in general, and which
, resorts to falsehoods ot the basest
and vilest kind because, in the
first place, it has no argument to
offer agaiust the removal, and sec
oud, because it lives, thrives And
fattens on, and revels.in, misstate
ments, falsehoods, villainy and
slander, has worked over time try
ing to < mvince the tax-payers
that the people of Ceredo and
Keuovn were actiug iu bad fMtth
and were mean and dishonest
enough to mislead and deceive
the people into votiug for the re
moval, aud then etep down ana
out and leave the coat of building
the oourt houee for the tax*payers
to foot. Let ue aay to the Wayne
Citizen that resortiug to such low
trickery in order to try to make
votes against the removal, will re
act and show up the base deoeiver
in due time; for we arill convince
everyone that we mean what we
■ay by placing the funds, with
which the court house is to be
built, in the hands of the couuty
court loug before the election.
Depend on this.
In Favor of Progress
Mr. Editor:
Having received a copy of the
Progressive Citizkn, we thought
we would acknowledge receipt of
samp, and eay that in our opinion,
it is well gotten up, full o( facts
and good oommon sense.
We are always frieudly to pro
gress and hope that your paper
may live to see great things ac
complisbed in this couuty, and
that it may adopt as its motto,
“Stick to the faots, talk to the
point, and stop when you reach
it.” That was some great man s
motto, but we have forgotten who,
Daniel Webster, maybe, or may*
be, John Jay ; but pleaHe don’t get
this oonfounded with Bee Jay, for
he talks, and talks, and talks all
the time, and never reaohes a
point, or a fact, either.
Well, the court house question
is on, and we do not knowhow all
of our people stand. We think it
safe to predict, however, that a
majority will be in favor of it.
Individually speaking, we have
studied the question well, and for
our lives we can’t see any good
reason for it remaining where it
is. Some may argue that it
should remain where it is, because
it is m the most central part of
the couuty. It is trup that it is
centrally located, and that argu
merit would be good, if conditions
were the same now as when Ih^
! county seat was first located.
I ben, everybody had to eith«i
walk, or go horse back ; there wrrn
uo railroad* and very Cow county
road*. Hut conditions hi thin
county have changed. We hav*
two railroad* running through ibe
entire length of the county; mode*
of travel have changed, people
have become accustomed to travel
ing by rail, and when a man
mak' Rup his mind to go, it it o
any distance, he at once inquires
when he can get a train. He
never think* of ordering a horse.
Now, what are th« argument*
against the removal? That the
proposed location is in a frog
pond, and that the ground over
flows every time it rams, and that
people will have to u*e boats, to
get to the court house. Now every
reasonable minded rnau knows
that there is uo truth in such ar
gument*, and no man, or paper
j either, that has any regard for
: trutii.^jrill advance any such ar
guments. The Wayne Citizen
! calls the people in favor of the
1 removal, “schemers and trick
sters.” Now. we understand a
schemer, or trickster, to be a man
who will resort to some unfair
means to gain his point. Now
what unfair act or false statement,
has been done or made by the
people favoring the removal? 80
far as we ha.e been able to ser,
not one, but on the contrary, ev
erything done, has been open and
above board, which indicates that
the people favoring removal mean
what they say aud propose to deal
with the people squarely aud hon
estly. But how about the other
! *»de?
The Wayne Citiasn is the only
mouth piece so far hoard from,
and the way that sheet has lied, it
would take ue too loug to say.
But we te»l sure that its wanton,
reckless, wilful, unprecedented
lying hat brought the blush ot
shame to the cheek of the honest,
upright voter, who is honestly op
posed to removal. Then, if the
W ayne Citizen, the leading organ
sgainat removal, resorts to this
mode of argument aud seeks to
carry its point by false representa
tions, would not “schemer** aud
“trickster” apply to it, rather
than any one else? Now, every
body that wants the delightful
pleasure of climbing that hill and
drinking that beastly water aud
thereby make themselves siok aud
pay a doctor bill, vote for the
court house to remain on top of
that bill; but for me and my
boueo, we propose to vote the other
way.
Progress.
