Stirs Things up.
That little squib in Tuesday's Tribune
relative to the decapitation of Major
Walker as poormaster seems to have
stirred things up. Commissioners White
and Horminghausen became real angry,
threatened Bare with all sorts of dire
things, and the Telegraph dovoted a
column practically to Bare. Not-withstanding
this, Tho Tribune has no re
traction to make. Technically Major
Walker resigned, but he resigned to
escape being fired. He was given tho
"tip" that he would bo replaced by
another man and hastened to hand in
hii regisnntion. The difference between
a forced resignation and being kicked
out of office is about as great as the
difference betwten two peas.
That the Telegraph, which lays claim
to being the leading republican paper
of this section of the state, should rush
so frantically to the defense of demo
cratic commissioners might be con
sidered rather peculiar to the unin
formed, but when it is known that this
support of The Telegraph is bought and
paid for by county publishing, it loses
