Following the example set by Sena
tor Quay, Mr. Bryan says that he has
no enemies to punish. He might have
added that from a political standpoint
he is short on rewards for his friends,
it is gratifying to know that th
voters of Washington county aie gi
lug no heed to the slanderous reports
that are hem? circulated about Mr.
Middleswart, whose personal character
Is unassailable and whose official rec
ord is without a defect.
The story is being told bv the "paid
agents" that Mr. Middleswart voted for
House Bill No. 94C. requiring net
fishermen to pay a license. Like all
of the other lies that are being peddled,
this one is refuted by the official rec
ord which shows that Mr. Middle
swart voted "NO."
Col. John Riley, a state senator from
Marietta in the legislature of Ohio, Is
very much opposed to rabbits, and pro
poses to extinguish the varmints by an
act of the legislature. Ho Is real ser
ious about it, and reminds one of tha
West Virginia legislator (who may
have been John for all we know) who
onco Introduced a bill to prevent the
owners of hogs from running at large.

To the Tax Payers of Washington
Col. John H. Riley, who is n candi
date for tho nomination of Represen
tative to defeat Mr. Middleswart for
re-nomination announces in his num
eious letters sent throughout tho coun
ty that he Is in favor of a reduction of
taxes. Let us examine his record.
While a member of the 73rd General
Asemhly, ho worked and votc,d for a
bill which was finally amended by the
House to read as follows:
An Act to supplement Section 2CS0 of
tho Revised Statutes of Ohio. Section
1. Bo It enacted by tho General As
sembly of the State of Ohio, that See-J
lion 2080 of the Revised Statutes of
Ohio bo supplemented as follows:
Section 2G80cl. That in Washington
County in which such Libraray Asso
ciation is mentioned in said Section
2CS0 shall lie formed, and In which
there Is no police couit twenty-five per
cent or all fines and penalties which
are assossed and collected by Common
Pleas and Probate Courts of such coun
ties for offonses and mibdemeanors
prosecuted in paid Court, loss the
compensation allowed by law for the
Prosecuting Attorney for the county
In State Cases, shall be paid, quarterly,
by tho Clevis of ( ommoil Pleas and
Probate Judge lesptctively, to tho
Trustees of such Library Association,
and that one-fourth of all fines ana
penalties whietf arc nssesed and col
lected by the Mayor of the City of -Marietta,
prosecuted in tho name of the
said State or said City, shall be paid
quarterly by said Mayor to the Trustees
of such Library Association; all of
said sums so paid shall be expended in
the pm chase of LAW BOOKS and the
maintenance of such Association, sub
ject, in all other respects to the provi
sions said Section 2CS0.
Section 2. This Act shall take effect
from and after Its passage.
There is not a single county in the
faiate that has any such law as the one
passed by Col. Riley. While the Col.
was a member of the Legislature there
were but three counties in the state.
Columbiana, Darke and Butler, not
having a police court, whose repiesen
tathes had the nerve to ask for and
secure any such Legislation. V.iis
law still stands unrepealed, and can
be enforced at any time. Our new
Conrt House is rapidly nearing com
pletion, In which there js to bo a room
set apart for a Law Library. Do th3
tax payers of Washington County de
sire that a man represent them in the
Legislature who would work for the
passage of a bill that would cost them
annually ?C0O or $700 by a conserva
tive estimate? If you do, vote for a
Riley delegation. During the two
years that Col. Rliey was Senator from
this district the total amount of fines
collected was $3,405.00. Since that
time the amount of fines has steadily
increased and today the total amount
is not far from $3,000.00, collected dur
ing the last two years. Do the voters
of Washington County believe in elect
ing a man to represent them who
would legislate for a particular class,
as Col. Riley has done? If the Law
yers have a right to have a Library
maintained for them at the expense of
the tax payers, wonld not the Doctors
have the same right? This is but one
of tho many things done by the West
Virginian Statesman, and Perpetual
Office-SeeKer againts the best interests
of Washington County.
Had the bill first introduced by Col
Riley become a law, the tax payers of
this county would have had to pay
about $2,000.00 yearly to the support of
a Law Libraray.
It is no argument to say that tho
law has never been enforced. There
is little doubt but that it will be en
forced as soon as our new Court House
is completed, when there is a room in
which the Library can be placed.
In view of this fact, is it not the part
of wisdom to send a man to the
Legislature who will vote for its re
peal? ONE THING IS CERTAIN RILEY
WOULD NEVER DO IT.
UNFAILING SIGN OF PROSPERITY.
There Is one sure barometer of fi
nancial conditions in Kansas. When
ever the people feel rich they get up
senemes to bore in the ground after oil
or gas, or other valuable productions.
This propensity has given Kansas some
very valuable coal, gas, oil and salt
fields, and it is to be encouraged, not
deplored. Today something like fifty
towns are boring holes In the ground.
At one place out in Western Kansas
they are down close to 2,000 feet, and
still are cheerfully chugging away. At
Abilene $3,000 has just been raised by
popular subscription for the purpose of
boring, and the work la to be started at
once, in Hutchison a new sail wen is
going down at the rate of 200 feet a
day ad It is to have around it the
biggest, suit plant in the state. In
Southern Kansas derricks are as thick
as haystacks and they are finding

LABORING MAN'S FRIEND (V
Since the mails are being deluged,
with circulars proclaiming the Regis
ter's Riley to be the laboring man's
friend, it is but fair to look into his
official career along that line. An ex
amination of the records of the Ohio
Senate of the Seventy-third General
Asembly, when Mr. Riley was a mem
ber of that body, a measure was intro
duced by him in the early days of the
session, being Senate Bill No. 17,whlch
was calculated as a blow at every poor
man in the state. The bill as intro
duced is given in full herewith:
To amend Section G701 of the Revised
Statues of Ohio:
Section 1. Be it enacted by the Gen
eral Assembly of the State of Ohio,
That Section G701 of the Revised Stat
utes of Ohio be and the same is here
by amended so as to read as follows:
Section G701. Justices of the Peace
may previous to issuing process, com
mencing an action, or at any time be
fore trial, require the plaintiff to give
security for costs of suit, which may
be done by depositing a sum of money
deemed by the Justice to be sufficient
to discharge the costs that may accrue
In the action, or by giving an under
taking with surety approved by the
Justice, payable to the adverse party,
for the payment of all costs that may
accrue in tho action.
Section 2. Section G701 of the Re
vised Statutes of Ohio Is hereby re
pealed. Section 3. This act shall take effect
and be In foico from and after its
If this bill had been enacted Into
law it would have had a tendency to
shut tho poor man out of Justice's
courts, but thanks to the good judg
ment of the Senate, the measure was
put to sleep very quickly and most ef
fectively by being indefinitely postpon
ed. Under tho existing law any resi
dent, rich or poor, may bring suit in
the Justices' courts without executing
tlio rigid requirements called for In
tills pet measure of the Register's Ri
ley, who, as one of his first official acts
after getting into tho Senate attempt
ed to put a burden upon the laboring
man by compelling him to give secur
ity for the costs In case It became nec
essary for him ,to sue for his rights.
O, yes! this measure, like tho bill re
quiring tho maintenance of a library
for tho benefit of a chosen few. at a
very heavy expense to the people, Is
evidence that tho Register's Riley ia,a
"great friend" (7) of the laboring man.
