VIOLATING THE LAW.
Popocratic Executive Committee At
tempting to Assess Postinnsters.
Notwithstanding1 the fact that tho
United States laws make it an offense
punishable by a fine of $1,000 to assess
government employes for contribu
tions for campaign purposes, the Ex
ecutive Committee of the Popocratic
organization is doing1 that very thing1.
Through its Secretary the Committee
las sent letters to every postmaster in
4he county "assessing"1 them certain
amounts to assist General Warner, J.
D. Payne and some others in carrying
on the campaign for freo coinage, re
pudiation and a 53 cent dollar.
The letter opens with the phrase "in
accordance with our usual custom dur
ing the presidential campaigns," and is
sent "to the various postoftice holders
throughout the country, fixing a reas
onable assessment on all postmasters,
to assist in defraying the expenses of
the campaign. The executive com
mittee this year is particularly handi
capped in its work by lack of funds,
' and no successful work can be carried
on without some co operation from
you from whom we believe we right
fully expect some reasonable and sub
Vour assessment is therefore fixed at
ten dollars; which amount is due and
payable at once to me or to the treas
urer. We trust you will not disregard
this matter, but will send in your re
mittance at once; and if possible be
with us tho next regular meeting of the
Exeeutiye Committee, Tuesday even
ing, Oct. 0th. Please extend the cour
tesy of a reply."
The missive from which the above is
quoted was type-written and addressed
to the postmaster at Lower Newport.
It created somewhat of a sensation
when it came into the hands of the
Republican committee. There is no
doubt of its authenticity whatever and
it may be inspected by anyone inter
ested. It was certainly a nervy trick in
tended to secure SSOO or $1000 for use at
the polls on election day. It shows
the straits in which the Popocratic or
ganization of this county perceives
itself, notwithstanding the fact that
the head of the American Bimettalic
League resides here, and by virtue of
his office, is supposed to have money to
burn. It will, of course, fall utterly as
a device for raising money, as there is
probably not a possmaster in tho
county ignorant of the law on the sub
ject. Republican Meetings. ,

political issues of the day in our village
last Friday evening wo overheard, and
on tho following evening Dr. Ames and
Mr. A. L. Smith entertained as large
an audience on tho samo subject The
Doctor thinks tho farmers are a terribly
oppressed people and his whole talk
was concerning the poor laboring class,
how they are held in bondage. As
the Doctor drove hero from Marietta
ho certainly could not but notice the
thrift and enterprise of tho farmors.
As many as a score of new dwelling
houses, and good ones too, capacious
barns, fat cattle, and slick horses. We
referred him to tho depositors of tho
Dime Savings Society, the farmers and
tho common laborers you can find by
tho hundreds. Wo think it much bet
ter to encourage than d iscourage, speak
.words of comfort instead of telling us
we are going to tho Devil. Give us
Major McKinley for President, it will
restore confidence. Adjust the tariff
to the needs of the people, resume reci
procity with foreign nations and it will
cause the Doctor and Mr. Smith to grin
from car to ear and us poor farmors to
smilo all over.

Chicago, 111., Oct 12. W. D. Bynum,
Chairman of the Sound Money Demo
cratic Committee, is authority for the
statement that Candidate Bryan's tour
of the country on a special train is
more or less of a money-making scheme.
It appears that in Indiana, Iowa and
North and South Dakota, either tho
boy orator of the Platte or his travel
ling managers haye been sand-bagging
the sijver Democrats of, smaller towns
through which their train passed for
suras ranging from $50 to $300.
HELD UP FOR BOODLE.
Communities who refused to pay the
sums demanded were deprived of the
privilege of hearing Bryan speak. It
is known that the little town of Nobles
ville, Ind., had to raise 150 before the
manager of the train would consent to
permit it to stop at all. A demand
was made on Logansport, Ind., for $300
in order to haye the train stop, but
Logansport was slow to take advan
tage of the offer, and the amount was
subsequently cut down to ?50. A tele
gram from Aberdeen, receivod this
morning, states that tSOO was exacted
from that city before Bryan would con
sent to exhibit his; oratorical powers
from t,he rear of the sleeping-car.
Tho smartest and grandest nupltal
event that has happoned In Marietta

former and the manliness of the latter.
The bridal party, numbering sixteen,
sat down to a long table decorated
with flowers and ribbons, and bearing
refreshments. This party was of
course the one about which the chief
most interest centered. In front of
each guest were two boxes opened
just before arising. The boxes con
tained wedding cake and a ring for
each lady and wedding cake and a pair
of cuff buttons for each gentleman.
The guests were invited into the
dining room by Mrs. Torpy and Mrs.
West, and when in the dining room

Mrs. Will Lord and Mrs. Winifred
Laing. At a table in tho center of the
room sat Miss Jessie Knowles and Miss
Edna Grafton, serving coffee. Mrs. J.
W. Sniffen, Miss Buchanon and Miss
Shurick attentively saw that all the
guests were cared for.
