" Congressman Gorman did it with lis little hatchet. He came to Washngton this trip with one particular ;hing in mind, and that was to secure ;he removal of Postmaster Humphrey, of Adrián, for every kind of oftensive jartisanship. He filed charges against ïim which covered his oonduct of the office, the insulting resolutions per;aining to President Cleveland, which iie drafted and presented to the G. A. R. post in 1887, and his identiflcation with a secret American and unpatriotic organization. His eft'orts were rewarded by President Cleveland this afternoon by the removal of Postmaster Ilumphrey. Ilis successor is the splendid young democratie ex-Mayor, Leonard W. Iloch, for the last tour years chairman of the democratie county committee of Lenawee county. Congressman Gorman also secured changes in a number of the smaller postotlices in his district and a nevv deal in pension examming boards, and goes home very well satisfled." The above dispatch from Washington was published in Tuesday's Free Press. Those who are acquainted with the new Adrián master will thoroughly approve the appointment. Ex-Mayor Hoch is a thoroughly enterprising young German business man, and a great democratie worker, whose work has told in Lenawee. He was Washtenaw's candidate for auditor-general at the democratie state convention last year, and would have been nominated by acclamation had he not telegraphed his declination of the honor. We congratúlate President Cleveland, Congressman Gorman and the people of Adrián on the appointment.
