Sodavllle Saturday on account of the
rain, but next Saturday they trill
meet on the diamond rain or Rhine.
We are howling for a new road to
Waterloo, that 1 moat of tbe town Is,
but from observations we have made
in the last six months the town had
better attend to it street. We would
remind the great and all-wise council
to enrry a few gravel and throw In the
street, as It would be impossible for
team and wagon to get through.
The young ladle from Waterloo who
vlslled Sodavllle last Sunday and
ought shelter from the spring shower
under the roof of the college entrance,
were reminded of the adage, "that It
never rain but pours." We haven't

arose from Mlsner not hanging out a

THE SHERIFF'S CHARGES.
(Prom Albnoy Demoornt AprllW.)
The Democrat recently stated that
Sheriff McFeron wa In the habit of
charging $b a piece for prisoner eves
though tbe number waa more than
four, the law permitting $5 for four.
and wbere there are more than that
$3 a piece. The statement of tbe
Democrat was correct. The sheriff in
January admitted to Judge Whitney

charging $6 apiece tor all the prison.

We give the above a:i sample of the
manner in which Sheriff McFeron hae

On last Thursday evening the Leb
anon Democratic Club held a public
meeting at tbe Band Hall with
crowded house. W. R, Bilyeu made
an eloquent and logical address ou the
political issue of the day, and held
the dose attention of his large audi-
enee. He waa never in better trim
and made tbe best speech we have
listened to for many di.ys.
Mr. Watson, the democratic nomi
nee for legislature, followed Mr,
Btlyeu, He wade clear and forci
ble statement of his views and stands
squarely ou tbe onuoty platform. His
exposure of the legislative methods of
past legislatures of this state was a
revelation. His speech was pointed
aud polite, convincing yet without
bitterness. ., Mr. Watson throws no
mud, but is a thorough gentleman on
the rostrum as well a in private life.
He Is a lawyer of recognized ability
and a man of integrity. The people

friend in Mr. Watson. He should be
Mr. JJcUlmurry declined to make
an address, but in a brief and manly
way gave the people to understand
that he would work to their interest if
elected. Tbe meeting was a great suc

enthusiasm apeak well for democratic
success. Two years ago a democratic
nominee for president could not have
