Under he law it becomen Urn duty
of the sheriff of 1Mb county to ap
point dfipnty sheriffs to uci at each
voting precinct in the county on elec

mediately after the appointment and
the charges brought to the sheriff's
attention were incompetence and in
temperance. The uppiiltnment, how
ever, was not revoked and the deputy
wan instructed by the sheriff to per
forin IiIb duty with respect to the
office. I'art of this duty requires the"
deputy to provide u suitable place
for the voters to cast their ballots.

Jar voting place in the past has been
t a general store in tho vicinity.
Tho deputy, however, was unable to
obtain the use of this store because
the proprietor was on of those who
had protested ng:i Inst his appoint- j
inent. Tho sheriff was notified and j
imniee'lately sent a tent and other!
equipment for lluvdeputy to estiiblishj
u voting place. This was dom. j
On election day hoiiio of tin; rest-1
dents of that precinct notified the
whorlff that the deputy was drunk
and unable to fulfil the duties of,
"hlH office. Sheriff Qulno made a)
hurried investigation of the charges;
on election day but was nimble to;
stunt n In t hniu. 1 Ms conclusion was j
that there was a neighborhood fac-!
linn Involved and that the deputy!
hud acted competently and faithfully.
ilu( the charges were not to be
net aside so lightly. The News re-,
celvetl two telephone inosHHguH from1
tho precinct on election day stating
that t he deputy was under tho in
fluence of liquor and that women
refused ot go to the tent, to vote. The
J'Jowh called tho sheriff and asked
that official whut was the situation.
Tho sheriff replied as Indicated
above. Later The News received n'
---communication ri'oin : espnnslblo !
man In tin; precinct who reiterated
tho charges. Tho charges were ser-j
Ions yet Tho . leit that tho f
proper dace fia their Investigation!
whs i he. giiand Jury und the coinniu-j
nlcatlon was not published.. Within :
tho past few days additional proof of
the truth of the charges has been
presented in permm at The flow's of
fire. Tho letter written to The Ncwh:
and the verbal statements of the uf-:
fair come from men of unqiiest inn-!
ed Integrity and Bobrlety, men whoso
reputation for truth and veracity 'arc
of tho very highest. When the charges'
ronio from such men It shows plainly j
that im neighborhood row Is respond
Bible for them and that the chaws1
nr tho honest conviction of honest:
men. j
If these charges against the-deputy j
ore sustained he Is not a fit person
to hold this responsible position and;
tin nould he summarily removed. The
T4owh is satisfied that a further in
vestigation should bo made and the
