It is stated of him that not long
since he held a ponfidential chat
with a democratic committeeman,
as to when the best time would be
for the republicans to. hold their

The Times speaks of it as follows:
"What they fought about no

ed the other a liar, and then the
fun commenced. The first round
was brief, but bloody. Eacn man
realized that he was not in the pink
of condition, and sparred cautiously
for a opening. In the midst of the
round Editor Kitson, who appeared
to be referee, attempted to settle
the thing, and a thump on the jaw
sent him on the ropes and his plug

assistance or suggestions from him.

V.iio Told the 'iiutli. '
It will be remembered that in the ;
issue of the Leader of February s', j
that T. E. Parker published a let
ter purporting to tell the exact
status of the present ownership map
business. The two following ex
tracts are from that letter and cov
er the matter of compensation for
the work. They read as follows!
"To get a complete system re
quired additional Jabor, so" I waived
my right to compensation under
the law and agreed with the county
court to furnish the maps for the
amount they would have to pay the
state as state tax, aud which they
would not have to pay, and wait
for my pay until the tax was col
lected, so that instead of paying the
state they would pay iie, and the
county would not be out one cent."
"Now don't be bamboozled by
the twisting and distorting that
interested parties give this matter.
The fact remains that Lincoln
county will not have one cent to
pay for the work we are doing.
The money that we get would have
to be paid to the state if the prop
erty had been on the roll when it
went in about two months ago, and
costs the county nothing.'.'
So much for Mr, Parker's ver
sion, Now what does the contract
that is signed by the members of
the county court, and also by T. E.
Parker and J. S Van Wjnkle,' say?
It says this;
"And the party of the first part
hereby agrees to pay to said second
parties in payment of such work as
rc.iuiu, CiCvcu niinS on cv ci y uui-
lar of the assessable value of all
property not assessed Lv the asses
sor during the year 180?, and at
the time the supplementary roll
hereinbefore described shall be
turned over to the sheriff by the
said second parties and reported to
the sheriff as aforesaid."
Now who told the truth Mr.
Parker in his letter of February 8,
or the Leader when it asserted
that they wre to get j 1 mills for
their work? And jti the whole
contract the state tax is not men
