SHENAOTOAJE, PA., WEDNESDAY. SEPTEMBER 9. 1S91. ONE CENT. TPIE SURE KOAJJ TO OlUJLJiiJNUJdJ JLJLhJB lvJN .DjJirlJJjjJjjJr THROUGH POINTER'S INK It DIRTY CAMPAIGNING. Monday's Philadelphia Inquirer Bays the campaign of defamation be gun at the ratification meeting con ducted under tho auspices of Mr. Harrlty is continued by the Demo Icratio organs, notably the Times. It 5t will be remembered that in that re markable document promulgated by tho ratification meeting Htato Treasurer Boyer was "urralgtied und condemned," not because he had done anything, but because ho was a Re- f publican and it was considered the nrniiM- thlni? to "nrralun and coil- jt i i " ' j y. .. t i 11 i.. 11. .! 1 uemu" every itepuuuuau m wo utic. Following out the lino of defamation the immaculate Times, always in the lead when some Job like South Moun tain or the sale of tho gas works Is being engineered by the vultures, assails Boyer for having dared to leave the state for a few days of fishing. It says among other things : Tho topic of discussion at the State Capital to-day Is the disappearance of so many Treasury and ex-Treasury oillclalc It Is regarded as a strange coincidence that simultaneously with tho nalllnir together of the Legislative flB iTnvpHt.li'atlntr f!ommltteo durlnir tho ' ' past week Boyer should be in Canada, Iilvsey in Milwaukee or somewhere else and that Quay should have taken a cottaee by the sea sands of New Jersey, where his family Intend to join him. This Is about as mean a fling as even the Times is capablo of. Of course, , Quay is at Atlantic City for the sole purposo of escaping the Investigating j, Commlttea. He never goes there for I any other reason. His interests are in 1 Pennsylvania. His homo is In this JL state. He is in Atlantic, not for the purpose of fishing, but to escape tho questions of a committee. Of course, IT he will continue a fugitive. He will give up his home and his office and remain by the seashore, just because a Legislative Committee Is taking testi mony a committee that began opera tions lone before the Senator's fllcht. y The Innuendo concerning Boyer la A) on a par with the declaration concern- adds : People are recalling the fact that Boyer was the first witness examined by tho committee, that his examina tion was very perfunctory, being confined to a few questions about the condition of the Treasury when ho took charge of it ; the banks In which the state money was deposited and the exact condition of the money deposited Carpets and Oil Cloths.

Just received 1ANCY BLOATER MACKEREL, ex- i tra large, white and at. by his bondsmen to make good tho Jamison and Delamater losses, aud that ho started for Canada on a fishing excursion tho next morning. Doubtless such attacks aro pleasing to the Harrlty combine, but thero are some Democrats left who decline to support tho newspaper in his course of defamation. John Fow Is a member of the Investigating Committee, and is a Democrat. He put the questions to Boyer. Says Mr. Fow in indigna tion to tho Times reporter : There was nothing perfunctory about It. In point of fact, the Treasurer was on the stand over two hours and we got from hi in all tho Information we expected to get. Nobody believes that Mr. Boyer has actual knowledge of anything criminally wrong. Tho crooked work is done by outsiders, and I for one did not expect to connect Mr. Boyer with the looting of the Treasury that has been going on for so long. As for his being out of the jurisdiction of the committee, I know that lie is In Canada, whero he is heavily interested In valuable fishing grounds, but I am satisfied that lie is I willing at any time to give us what In formation ho can and to aid us lu re moving the load of disgrace that Pennsylvania is now staggering un der. I myself asked him every per tinent question I could think of, aud hla answers were in every instance clear and satisfactory. Tho facts concerning Mr. Boyer are just these, and they wore easily ob tainable by the Times had It used the slightest possible effort to learn them: Mr. Boyer Is in the habit of making an annual trip to Cauada to fish. He delayed his vacation in order to appear before the committee, and thero was not a member of it that did not know tlita and did not further know of his. Intentions, tgjjake his vacation as soon as his examination was "over." Captain Skinner, another Democratic member of the committee, adds to Mr. Fow's announcement: The committee knew that Treasurer Boyer was going on his vacation, and we arranged with him for a further examination upon his return. I am sure that Boyer did not run away from tho committee, aud I know that the committee will examine him npon all points in connection with the Treasury upon his return. It hasbeen Treasurer Boyer's custom for several years to spend a few weeks in Canada gunning and fishing. He Is a mem ber of a club which owns a great many acres of woodland. The Treasurer will probably return In a week or two. This ought to be sufficient to satisfy any honorable person, but tho vultures will still flap their wings. qualities and prices.
