Many persons in the neighborhood opposed the erect.on of the pole, believing it to be a standing menace to the peace of the country, but at Ant there wu no Indication of an attempt to disturb it. The Republicans when spoken to on the subject, anawred that " there was no one in the county who dared to touch the pole." 11 There were men enough to defend It," ic. On one occasion an old resident of the neighborhood was assaulted because be had declared that the pole was a nuisance, and on another, threats were made to ride upon a rail, a gentleman living nr?r-by. because be bad spoken Southern sentiments freely in Occoquan.
