AN ASTONISHING TRUTH.
Conduct Should Not be Permitted to
If we expect to ever l>e rid of gambling,
we must put in a new marshal that has
at least a little idea of the duties of his
With regard to our present marshal,
does it surprise you when we inform you
of the “cold fact” that last Saturday
night in particular, in one of our saloons
he stood by and watched a gam«
bling game known to the gambling fra«
termly as “stud poker," and made no
interference but rather seemed to enjoy
it He was somewhat “hat" when he
saw an A dv KKTiMKH reporter “taking it
all in,’’ but appearances indicate that
the gamblers have such a strong hold on
him that he <1< m ‘S not dare to do his duty.
PerhajM» he does not know what a
gambling game is. and, if such is the
cam*, he has no right to serve in the ca
pacity of an office that requires a man of
intelligence and experience.
A good marshal <'an I m * elected only by
the votes of our citixens w ho are inter
ested in the welfare of our city. Politic'S
should “cutno figure" in the coming
city election, but votes should be govern
ed by “gambling" or “no gambling."
The l-edlee* Fair.
The Ladies* Fair that was held in
Granite Hall last week is at an end, and
the ladies under whose auspices it was
given are well pleased with the result.
To say that the Fair was “fine” is not
doing justice to its true character.
The exhibits were all first in their
respective classes, and the management
is entitled to great credit for getting to
gether such a grand display.
MU Farewell Addreaa.
Rev. G. W Black, the Baptist ¡mator,
delivered his farewell address in the
Presbyterian Church Sunday evening.
The address was a good one and enjoyed
by a large audience.
A LEADING JOURNAL.
T h a A shland A dvkbtiskk deserves
the highest compliments of praise for
the brave imttleit has made and is mak
ing against gambling. Others may have
taken the initiative, but if they have we
have failed to notice it.
Ashland is becoming noted as a college
town, and the people at large who con
template Bending their boys and girls
there to school will be careful to inves
tigate* conditions and surroundings. True
the laws against gambling are violated
openly at all |>oints in Jackson county,
and will continue to be until w’e succeed
in electing a few* mkn who have moral
courage enough to stand firmly for what
they know to be right. Whenever pub
lic sentiment is strong enough, gam
bling w ill have to go. Your voice is a
¡»art of public sentiment. When a hero
takes up arms against a sea of sin, freely
give him your unstinted and unwavering
support. No man is so low as to be en
tirely without influence. Ixt your in
fluence l»e for the good and coming
generations will call you blessed.—Gold
Satisfied at Last.
It is an old saying that the farmer is a
hard man to please and satisfy; no
sooner is he thoroughly complaining of
too much rain than the necessity for ir
rigation stares him in the face, and starts
him investigating the latest practical
and profitable methods. Experience
now confirms the claim that a Hercules
Gasoline Gas Engine solves th£ problem
of economical, reliable power; and for
on«v the farmer is suited, for a Palmer
Rev Pumping Plant so operated gives
him a chance of clearing his overflown
lands, and, later on, of flooding his
parched fields, besides using his engine
for cutting feed, saw ing wood and run
ning churns, etc.
For particular!*, etc., address, Palmer
