It luis always been, and wo suppose
always will bo a fact, thai a certain
number or class of people in overy
community will take tip with stranger
to tlio exclusion of their own people
who have been good citizens and who
have lived hero for lifted) or twenty
years They will even condemn these
cili.ous for intimating that there is
8nmotuiug wrong with theso strangers.
Take for instance the follow who for
two weeks made a pretense of preach
ing on our streets and while doing so
took occasion to villify tho mayor, the
city ofllcors and our townspeople in
general. On last Saturday afternoon
ho again directed his remarks at thu

our assertions have generally beeu
backed up by facts. For the beaelit of
skaptics and to show that wo were not

grounds we print the following taken

which denounced him at a fake. Tho
following letters which were written
without any solicitation on our part,
are enough to make any fair-minded

of keeping his company or any other

to be a true Christian; his uncle said
ho wasn't worthy of respect or confi

than fair to tho peoplo of that place
that wo expose him still farther. Since

"Saturday night the mother of a 11
year old girl informed nlllcer Cannon
that the leader (if tho Volunteers had
; come to her dutighter uud after-prom
islng to buy tho child all sorts of fiuory
asked her to run away with him. The
mother didn't wnnt to get out a war
rant for lis nrrest but she askod Otllcor
Cannon to, interview tlio man. The
otllcor did so and at llrst the volunteer
denied all knowledge of the alTair, hut
later sent word that he would leave
town at once if nothing was (tone to
hinder his going. Olllcor Cannon, be
lieving a hypocrite will do 110 good in
tho community, ordered him to lose no
time in getting away"
He claimed when ho first came here
to bo out under control of Lawyer
Wolfonbarger doing temperance work,
but that gentleman in a letter to us
denies knowing anything about it. He
also said he was a single man aud was
trying to get young ladies to marry
him, while the letter from Illinois says
htf has a wife,
From what we have learned of tho
actions of the fraud in tho past wo are
convinced that tho propor way to treat
