THUR&AY MAR. 26 1014 REPLY TO GORDON HYATT'S SLANDERS Gordon, your flunkey after last weeks' deliverance says that the controversy is over. If honesty or reason had possessed your order to your carpet-bag three weeks' residence secretary of your executive committee, as typo for your Yellow Jacket, the matter could end, but when the public coavicted liar that you are asks the question "Have you been accused of perjury by a man of your own town?" ,lHave you been accused of graft?" which every old citizen knows is false, an answer is necessary, i because new people come to our county every year who do not know us neither do they kno w you, Gordon. - An honest answer is therefore necessary: We deny that any resident ever accused us off perjury. A person who we had accomodated by signing his note came to us after we had , taken steps to make him pay th note, ineinnstt.ino- n.l much, hut befofft 0 --- V he got to the accusing place was fighting unfairly ,wjtt2, l knife, heti-' fcp-d -ffei p desV sistence; with our 'Phuf. nnrsnn has I petition in bankruptcy and moVftFYank Bain et al ) county ed to Wetmore. If the charge of graft was true you could secure an indictment and conviction of us, because every branch of the county goy- ernment is in accord with your political persuasion. The county court is republican, and it selocts the grand jurors, the petit jurors and the tral jurors, and that party elected and controls in a measure the official action of our Judge and Attorney General. Every branch of the trial would be ou your side. Every branch of the government in a trial 'Tor graft or perjury would be against us, because we are a Democra.' and a person who would plow a bull for a living before we would acknowledge you as a person with whom decent people can associate. " You meddled in the matter, of a bond wherein I "was made to pay $ 250.00 in cash over an order of the county court releasing tne of prt of it, when no other per son has paid such an amount,' J because we are a Democrat. Yon were strong enough in court to have the bondsmen for the Ten nessee Copper Company releas. ed after Mr. Case had forfeited his bond for failing to fill out a tax schedule. You were on the job when Mr. Ran wick's case for the same offense was nolled You were on the job when the judge removed your 'disbarment proceeding to the Ducktowu Uw court. It was a case of an ira moral nature, but you were on the job when the judge allowed yovr, motion 10 reuiQVQ it vb?H TV no case waJ authorized for re moval except cases of a criminal civor commercial nature. Thus, in all these cases, in equalityof the law has been procured oy the interest that pay you for your' many multi plicities of crookedness. And nowi haying fully answered, we are willing to close or to answer further. Gordon, you are the whole ly ing cheese the boss of the re publican party, is why we answer your lies at all.
