A. Noltnkr, an old resident of Clack

Representatives Dresser and Hedges in
his paper, the Itortland Dispatch:
"A man who gives a written political
pledge is unworthy of confidence and
proves his true character when he le
trays that pledge. Mr. Dresser, after
signing that ironclad pledge to support
Senator Corbett and violating it, need
not expect in future to receive the confi

private relations with them. That such
a pledge was demanded of bin. shows
that confidence in his word was warn ing
by his political associates. A political
traitor wdl not hesitate iu betraying a
private trust. Mr. Dresser may be an
honorable man but his own evidence
precludes any such an assumption.
