Joe Hartley, who formerly lived i
a: Atkinson, was up here on a visit i
quite recently and talked a little
politics with his old-time friends.
When Joe was in the banking bus
iness at Atkinson he was extremely
popular and did many a good (turn
for many people, and notwithstand-
i: g his unfortunate relation to the
state treasury, still has many
friends who are glad to see him.
Many have felt that Bartley was
much more sinned against than
sinning and a quiet talk which he
had with a few friends this last trip
will convince more people that
Bartley has suffered for the sins of
others as well as his own.
Chatting one evening witha few
old-time friends of different shades
of politics, they began to discuss
