statehood is essential to make oper-

IN DEFENCE OF R. E. BA6BY
We, the citizens of Morrison, Au-
trey township, irrespective of politi-
cal aftiliatxn, have seen a scurrilous
statement reflecting upon the char-
acter of our fellow citizen, R. E.
Bagby. Believing such methods in~
defensible and a reflection upon the
citizenship of our people, we wish to
express our emphatic disapproval
thereof. We wish to state that we
wish to bear testimony to the high
character,business and social stand-
ing of our friend and neighbor. Mr.
R. E. Bagby has been a resident of
this community for the past six years
and it is our pleasure to state that
his charactehas been above reproach. #
He and his family are among our
most estimable citizens. And such
tactics as the above named scurrilous
statement is despicable in the ex-
treme ami should be condemned by
all respectable people.
