Isaac Moore

                                      CRAB CREEK, DEXTER TOWNSHIP.

Winfield Courier, February 27, 1874.
Dr. Wagner and Mr. Moore of Dexter, called upon us last Wednesday. They report everything prosperous in that city.
Winfield Courier, August 3, 1876.
ISAAC MOORE, Esq., of Dexter Township, will probably be a candidate for Representative before the Republican Convention of the 89th district. He is well and favorably known in the south­east part of the county. He is not a chronic office seeker, which is a good point in his favor. Should he be nominated, he will be elected.
Winfield Courier, August 17, 1876. Editorial Page.
The Republican county convention convened at the Courthouse, in Winfield, on Saturday, August 12th, at 1 o’clock p.m., and was called to order by A. B. Lemmon, chairman of the Republican county central committee. R. C. Story was elected temporary chairman and James Kelly secretary. A committee on credentials was appointed, consisting of Messrs. E. S. Torrance, J. W. Tull, A. B. Odell, T. R. Bryan, and S. M. Jarvis. The committee reported the following persons as having been duly elected as delegates and alternates to the convention.
On motion the convention proceeded to nominate, by ballot, a candidate for State Senator. The result of the ballot was as follows: E. C. Manning receiving 42 votes; C. R. Mitchell 5 votes; I. Moore 1 vote. E. C. Manning having received a majority of all the votes cast was declared duly nominated.
On motion the following named persons were selected, by acclamation, as delegates to the 3rd District Congressional convention: L. J. Webb, R. L. Walker, J. B. Evans, M. G. Troup, and E. C. Manning; and the following named as alternates: L. Lippmann, J. W. Millspaugh, S. S. Moore, I. W. Moore, and A. B. Lemmon.

It is but justice to Mr. Isaac Moore, of Dexter Township, to say that he is not a Republican, as a recent local in the COURIER would indicate. Furthermore, he is not a candidate for any office. He is simply a farmer and a good citizen—with Democrat­ic principles. We had been misinformed.
Arkansas City Traveler, May 1, 1878.
Isaac Moore has found a spring which seems to have the peculiar property of petrifying anything which is left for any time in its waters. He says that the last year’s leaves which dropped into the spring have been encrusted with a formation of stone, and the limbs and roots which project into the spring have also been petrified. He showed us a fine specimen which he took from the waters of this wonderful spring, which is on Crab Creek, in Dexter township. Cowley County Telegram.
Winfield Courier, May 29, 1879.

I. F. Moore says that he is not the man that went to Leadville as reported in the Beacon and copied into this paper. J. J. Hutch is the man that went and made the report as stated. Mr. Moore was in company with Mr. Hutch in Wichita, and the Beacon got the parties “a little mixed.”
