In your last week's issue Mr. Krlckbaum

thnt Mr. Krlckbaum failed when up tho

noccnt means wcro resorted to, such as

G. A. Marr. Tho amount secured was
$10.23 for thu cake ono lady having
814.00 tho other $5.17, thus Rev. Marr
takes tho cako. Tho ico cream was mado
on tlio grounds by Charles Decker of
Bloomsburg, and was pronounced by all to

zens, performed their parts most admlrn
bly nnd filled tho bill, walling on tho lui-

Tho ttmo has passed when tho Intelligent
voters ot this county can bo influenced or
deceived by circulars sent out n few days
beforo tlio delcgato election for tho purpose
ot Injuring tho chances of any particular
candidate. If signed by some responsible
name, so that the public may know who
issues them, they might bo entitled to
somo consideration, but when circulated
anonymously they should have no cllecl
whatever. Thcro ore several objections to
this modo ot campaigning. It is unfair,
becauso it gives tho accused no opportunl
ty to answer ; it is cownrdly, becauso the
person who circulates them has not the
courago to sign his name.
Wo have seen a circular of this character
purporting to glvo the record of William
Bryson In tho Legislature. Four thousand
of them wero printed nt a newspaper office
that has nover cast a Democratic vote. Wc
know nothing about its accuracy, but ev
erybody knows that if there is anything
crooked about Mr. Bryson's record it
could nnd should havo been attacked
months ago, Instend of waiting until a few
days beforo tho election. Tho Legislature
adjourned last November, nlnu months
The Columiiian advocates tho cause ot
no man In local politics, but when it sees
manifestly unfair means adopted for the
defeat of any candidate, it never hesitates
to dcuouncc such methods. It wants clean
politics, nnd nnonymous circulars Issued
on tho eve of an election do not como un
der this bend. Mr. Bryson's chances
now should bo precisely what thoy were
before this circular was printed.

AFFIDAVIT OF JAMES K. WEMMAX
State of Pennsylvania,)
COUNTY OF t'OLUMIIIA,)
Before mo tho subscriber, n Justice of the
Pcnco In nnd for snld County, personally
cnino James K. Welrman of Benton, said
County, who made tho following affidavit,
"That during thu month ot September,
A. D. 1883, William Krlckbaum ot Blooms
burg, approached mo with reference to his
candidacy for Prothonotary nnd enrncstly
solicited my support for the nomination
for Prothonotary ; thereupon I consulted
somo of my friends in liloomsburg nnd
nsked them whether it would bo advisable
for mo to encourage satd Krlckbaum In
his advances for my support nnd gnln his
confidence so ns to get Into tho secrets of
his disrcputnblo and outrageous methods
of electioneering, nnd I was advised to
pursue such n course.
"This course having been advised nnd
determined upon, I gave said Krlckbaum
to understand that ho should rccclvo my
support. As soon ns I promised snld
Krlckbaum my support ho asked mc
whether It would not ho advisable to use
some money to exert an Influence for said
Krlckbaum In that part ot tho county
where I live, nud, wanting to see how far
snld Krlckbaum might go In his disrcputn
blo methods, I answered, 'yes.'
"During satd month of September I was
serving nil a Grnnd Juror nt Bloomsburg,
nnd received from said Krlckbaum the sum
of fifteen dollars to bo used for electioneering
purposes ; and from that tlmo to tho pics
cnt, nt various times, havo received from
llyo to ten dollars, for the purposo ofln-
flucnclng votes for snld Krlckbaum, at.tbc
same tlmo kocplng my friends posted as to
bis plans In tho upper end ot the county,
and using nil tho power I .could, under the
circumstances, to provent said Krlckbaum
from gaining a foothold In Benton nnd vi
cinity. Tho last money I got from him
was on Monday, July 21sl, 1884, when I

Mr. James K. Welrman of Benton, takes
an oath that he has been acting tho spy,
sneak and informer In his intercourse with
Mr. Krlckbaum, at the instance and under
the ndvlco of some of his (Welrman's)
friends In Bloomsburg. "He docs not name
the friends in Bloomsburg" under whose
advice he acted, but the nnme of ono at least
will be exposed in tho course of this reply
to the affidavit.
Mr. Welrman having by bis own "disre
putable and outrageous methods" got
himself Into tho shadow of the Quarter
Sessions of Columbia County, tho District
Attornoy, Robert Buckingham, and Wm,
H. Snyder, candldato for Prothonotary,
seem to havo entered Into a conspiracy to

far successful, ns to add to Mr. Welrman's
previous "disreputable and outrageous
methods," those ot tho traitor, prctcndlug
friendship to betray his friend.

Dear Friend ; Our friend was hero to-day
and has so arranged matters that you will
not bo troubled for thrco months with tho
Wilson matter. He wns perfectly willing
to outer Into the arrangement as soon ns ho
came, aud ho has stopped the possibility of
your being prosecuted for thrco months. I
am pleased that they have given you thrco
months' timo to prevent tho prosecution
which iney migui institute against you
ami lor which mero is a nenvy penalty.
know you too well to think that you will
not puy the amount In that time, and
congratulate you upon your safety for tho
noxt three mouths, and I know that you
will raise tho amount In that tlmo. If you
do not, you know Wilson's disposition, and
It may bu that another nttcmpt to help you
out of tlio difficulty may not succeed. Now
James, stand by yfiur principles which
havo ruled you heretofore, and n happy and
prosperous uiu is ueiuro you. iius (inn

,m who will stand by you when friendship Is

would- Ilka to wrlto to you that I haven'
time to put It on paper now. But will sum
up what i navo to say politically in tho ex
rresslou "Down with Boss K. and his al
lies." Very tiuly your friend,
Mr. Welrman finding himself In tho hands
cf tho district attorney with "his illireputa
bio nnd outrageous methods," came to Mr.
Krlckbaum and put into his hands tho
Buckingham letters, onu of which Is given
above, nud begged ot Mr, Krlckbaum
money enough to settle the prosecution the
district attorney was holding over him.
This Mr, Krlckbaum finally consented to
do and for the money furnished for that
purposo took the following note.
