THE OHIO CENTENNIAL
SOXS OF THE STATE IX 7 HIS
CITY TO /O/A IN iTS
TABLET HI- BE UNVEILED AT CHILLI*
• OTHE.THE FIRST CAPITAL-CARVED
OUT OF NORTHWEST TERRITORY
-MANY EMINENT OHIOANS.
Th»> -.v of Ohio the world over will celebrate
ntxt Saturday the centennial anniversary of their
ratlve State. In the little town of < htllieothe.
Ohio, a tablet is to be unveiled with peculiarly im
presMv* services. commemorating the signing of
'he Statr'p tut lon. on'- hundred yearn ago.
and 'in this city the Ohio Society will meet, and
join hands, as it were, with their kinsmen at home.
The story of the rise of Ohio is of Interest to
♦■very American, as it illustrates the powers of
American expansion. Ohio was the first State to
be admitted to the Union out of the great North
west Territory, and in the hundred years of Its
Rtatehood it ha* Increased just one hundred times.
i- i*'«; its population Tv, ; - some forty thousand. At
'lie present time it has ,i\,! four million people,
and rank* as the fourth State in the. Union. New-
Fork, Pennsylvania and Illinois holding the first.
second and third places, respectively.
But what stirs the pri-ie of a native of Ohio per
haps more: than its growth in population and ma
terial wealth is her contribution of great men to
'be nation. Five of the twenty-fire Presidents of
the United States were !>orn in Ohio, and six are j
regarded by the citizens «>t' that State as their own.
The five that belong to Ohio by nativity were
<»ia.nt. born at Point Pleasant April XI, VOX; Hayes,
bom at Delaware. Delaware County. October 4.
I£2; Garfield. born In Orange Township. November
J3. 1K3I: Benjamin Harrison, born at North Bend.
August. 20. li'iX and McKinUy. k°rn at Niles. Trum
b-jll County. January 2*. ISC. The President who Is
regarded by Ohioan? as theirs by adoption was
William Henry Harrison. Although born in Vir
ginia. Harrison made Ohio his home, and before
he was elected the ninth President he had been a
member of Congress from that State, a State Sen
ator and a United States Senator.
On the United States Supreme bench Ohio has
Blso had five representatives. They were John Mc-
Lean. Noah H. Bwayne. Salmon P. Chase, Mor
rison R. Waif and Stanley Matthews. Of these
Chase and Waite were Chief Justices. Other na
tional characters who have come out of Ohio are 1
.Tofcn Sherman and William R. Day. Secretaries of ;
Rtat« under President McKinley; Thomas Ewlng. I
Thomas Corwin and Charles Foster, who were !
Secretaries of the Treasury at different times;
Lewis Pass Edwin M. Stanton. William Tecumseh :
Sherman and Alphon?o Taft. Who were all em- ]
ployed In many high positions of state, including j
' .r one that of Secretary of War.
Few outside of Ohio know much of Chilllcothe. I
•where the centennial ceremony is to be held. At j
the resent time it Is of no preat significance in |
point of population, having- not more than 15.0 V) 1
inhabitants, nor in point of situation for it is lo- j
cated '.n th» Interior of the State, in the valley of 1
the Seioto River. Th*» monies of next Satur- '•
day, however, will recall to the world a time when
ChilHcothe was a great dty, as compared with the
other settlements on the frontier. Tn the first
place Chillicothe was the capital of that vast
ftretch of lard known as the Great Northwest I
Territory, comprising the present States of Ohio. j
Indiana. Illinois. Wisconsin. Michigan and a part I
nf Minnesota, lying east of the Mississippi.
When Ohio became a State Chilllcothe -was Its
flrft capital, and here the scat of government re
mained, with the exception of only one short
«r«st until ISIS, when it -was moved to Columbus.
The rlv history of the Northwest Territory, fur
thermore, is of more than ordinary Interest to j
N>?*r- Yorkers, for the reason that the ordinance j
t>f 1787. which established Its government, was en- t
acted here when this city was the seat of the gov
ernment of the United States. At that time the
national rapitol stood at the corner of Wall and
Nassau 6ts.. where the present Sub-Treasury build- J
ing now stands
"We shall newer cease to fee the consequences of
the Great Ordinance of 1787 while the Ohio shall
flow." were the -words of Daniel Webster, In later
times. when the vast Importance of that enact
ment began to be understood. Although some
modern day scholars may overlook the fact, never
theless, it la said, this Ordinance should be re
garded us one of the creat factors in preserving
'he Union. In the Civil War. Among its provisions
were these: . j
No parson shall ever be molested on account of I
his mode of worship or religious sentiments. ...
There shall be neither slavery nor iii voluntary
s»-r\lt;;d-- In the said territory."
Thus freedom of person, freedom of property, j
freedom of education and freedom of conscience ]
were insured to the Settlers of the great Territory. I
. Slavery never crossed its boundaries. When the
<"ivil War broke out, it is estimated that the five
states of which it consisted supplied the Union
Army with one-third Its'" troops. Based on this
same ore3inance, the Thirteenth, Fourteenth and
Fifteenth amendments to the constitution were '
BY CABLE AROUND WORLD.
MESSAGE SENT BY AMERICAN —THE
SEW BRITISH TRANSPACIFIC LINE.
Although the English Government has now com
pleted its "all red cable" across the Pacific, link
ing with the mother country the colonies of Can
ada. New-Zealand and Australia by an electric
wire which does not emerge from the water except
bin British land, it remained for an American to
■■end the first telegraphic message around the
world. The Pacific cable was finished at I o'clock
«n the morning of October 31, when two duplicate
messages were dispatched from Suva, Fiji Islands.
To King Edward at Buckingham Palace. One
able dispatch went eastward by the new route,
the other westward by the old line by way of the
Cast Indies. In<3la. the Red Sea and Gibraltar.
The menage by the new cable took an hour to
1 each its destination.
The next day after this feat of sending a mes
sage half around the world Charles J. Glldden,
of Boston, conceived the Icea of sending a cable
<siFpati-h to himself which would belt the globe.
Accordingly, on November I at 9:15 a. m. he ad-
Crtf^ei this dispatch to himself:
"Boston. Nov. -Glldden. Boston. Mas*., via
Vancouver. British cable to Australia, around the
This m • as an ordinary telegram, taking its
plac* with the regular business of the telegraphic
and cable companies by which it had to be
handled, and It wa« received In Boston by the
Western Union Telegraph Company at 12:25 a. m.
November 3. having made the circummundane trip
In thirty-nine hours and twenty minutes.
The new British cable across the floor of the
Pacific has its Australian tetUßlUtts at Southport,
i:>. Queensland, with a branch across to New-Zea
land. From Southport the cable makes toward
America, by the way of Norfolk Island, the FIJI
Inlands and Fanning Island. The American ter
minus it at Vancouver. British Columbia. The
able was laid by two ships, the Anglia and the
'.olonia. The Anglia carried the coils which were
unwound between Southport and Fanning Island,
and the Colonia completed the section between
Fanning Island and Vancouver.
The distances covered by thai stretch of wire are
enormous and exceed anything that has yet been
attempted in cable laying. The total length of the
able from America to Australia Is 9.272 miles, or
three times the distance between this city and San
Francisco. The actual distance between the ter
mini of Southport and Vancouver is only 7.26" miles
but the bottom of the Pacific is bo deep, the cable
nil? three and one-half mil's beneath the surface

framed as they stand to-day.
There is a movement now on foot amnnn men
prominent in the affairs of this city, hut who were
born in the States of -the old Northwest Territory,
to commemorate the Ordinance of 17*7 by *»n ap
propriate tablet in the wnll of the Sub-Treafiiry
huilding. As the enactment was passed on July 13.
it is hoped that the tablet will he erected on that
date n»-xt year.
After the Ordinance became a law settlements
were made In various parts of Ohio, the first being
a: Marietta. so called In honor of Marie Antoinette
Quern of France, and thousands of emigrants made
it their home. Some of them were called Virginians,
others were Scotch-Irish from Kentucky, but all
were men of strong convictions on the subject of
slavery. I"; Is thus said that Edward Tiffin, of
Chiuicothe. the first Governor of the State, re
fused £!.""•> for his slaves before leaving Virginia,
and set them free, as did his brother-in-law,
Thomas Worthington. the first United States Sen
ator from Ohio.
There has been much controversy as to th«
exact .late that Ohio became a State. In pur
suance with an enabling act of Congress, a con
vention was held at ChlTlleothe, and on November
2S. I8(B, one hundred years ago next Saturday,
the ,;■ lf-K.ii.--K finned the constitution. In the next
year, on Pel-run: y 19. Congress passed an act
establishing courts in Ohio, and providing for Its
government. Some have thus said that when the
convention delegates signed the constitution, Ohio
became a State, other- argued that Its Statehood
was not perfected until recognised by Congress.
The great majority of legal opinion, however,
now holds that November 29, 1803, Is the correct
birthday, and they point to the first "whereas"
of the act of February 19. int. to substantiate
their claim. This whereas, in part, is as follows
"Whereas, The people of the eastern division of
the territory northwest of the River Ohio, on th©
I9th day of November, IS'>2, formed for themselves
a constitution, and State government, and did
jrlve to the said State tin name of the Str^> of
Ohio." etc. The words "said State" Is thus re
garded as conclusive proof that Ohio's birthday
is November 2?. The present constitution of Ohio
dates from 1860, when the original draft was
amended In some particulars.
It is estimated that 400,000 of the inhabitants of
this city were born In Bister States. Of these, New-
Jersey, with 56.000; Pennsylvania, with 36.000; Mas
sachusetts, with 25.000; Virginia, with 22.7<>>, and
Connecticut, with 20,000, lead the list. Ohio comes
next with 15,060 In consequence of this diversi
fied representation, many State societies have been
organized, and although the Ohioans an less
numerous than their fellows from nearer States,
nevertheless they boast of having formed the
first State society. The Ohio Society was thus
organized on January 13, ISM
"Colonel Charles W. Moulton. a New-York law
yer, who was born in Ohio." said one of Its mem
bers yesterday, "first conceived the idea of such
an organization, and he spoke of the project to
General Thomas Ewlng and Milton I. Southard,
who were associated in the law firm of Kwlng ft
Southard, at No. 156 Broadway, where Mr. South
ard still has his offices. The three, men then Issued
a circular letter to various Ohio men prominent in
the life of New-York. Subscriptions were raised,
and the society was duly launched at a dinner nt
the Fifth Avenue Hotel In the following January."
General Kwing was made the first president of
the society* and those who have succeeded him in
the presidency have been General Wager Bwayne
of the law firm of Bwayne & Bwayne: ex-Mayor
William L. Strong, General Henry I* Burnett,
United Btates District Attorney: Milton I. South
ard, formerly a Congressman from Ohio, and Col
gate Hoyt. the Wall Street broker. Mr. Hoyt will
Be re-elected at th • annual meeting of the society,
whicfa will be heiel next Saturday, on the day or
the State's anniversary. The ofher officers, "who
■will be elected at that time also, are a* follow*
Thomas Ewlng. David H. Bates. John T. Mc-
Cook. Louis D. '"lark" and Lowell M. Palmer, vice
presidents; Francis M. Applegate, secretary; Sam
uel M. Parsons, treasurer, and Andrew H. Foye,
Leonard D. Morrison and Warner Ells, new mem
bers of the governing committee.
It is hoped that Governor Nash and former Gov
ernor Campbell of Ohio will be present at. this
meeting, the latter part of which will be devoted
to speeches commemorating the occasion.
The formal dinners of th- Ohio Society have long
been recognized as of high Importance, because of
the character of their guests At the next dinner,
which is to be hHd on January 17. the. chief guest
will be John Hay, Secretary of State who Im an
honorary member of the society. It will be a
dinner of diplomats for the ministerial representa
tives of Great Britain. Germany France Italy
Russia, Mexico and other nations will be'nmong
the guests. At the elinner last winter the following

ON ATLANTIC CITY BEACH
PROJECT FOR A TROLLEY I. INF BESIDE
THE OCEAN— RACES' ON THANKS- .
Atlantic City. N. J., Nov. 22 'Special).— On* of the
latt-st schemes proposed for Atlantic City has been
advanced by Richard Lop*r. a well known Phlla
delpbian, who wants to build a trolley line along
the beach front from the Inlet to Jackeon-ave.,
the western limit of the city. Loper says thai he
has nearly $2,000.00) back of the project, and all he
asks Is the franchise and he would start at once
to carry out the idea. He would. In return for the
franchise, build a new board walk, and make It
twice the width of the present promenade, or eighty
feet wide. He would forever maintain it and keep
it In repair, and besides that he is willing that the
city shall have a share In the gross receipts of the
trolley line when the road is completed. He would
raise the walk several feet higher than it Is at
present, and would have the rails overhead sup
ported by the steel structure. There Is little pros
pect that the City Council will ever consider such
a plan. The Park act, which whs secured through
the affortl of ex-City Solicitor Carlton Godfrey,
provides that the city shall never gram a. franchise
for a railroad of any character along the beach,
and the property owners would protest If an effort
were made to raise the walk higher vhan It Is at
present, for it would require the building of »\< pc
from the walk to their stores, or raising the latter
to a level with the vrorr.enaUe.
A rather novel and startling proposition was made
at a recent meeting of the County Board of Free
holders in connection with a debate relative to
moving the county seat from May's Landing to At
lantic City. It was made by one of the freehold
ers from one of the small villages off la the coun
try, and was to the effect that. In the event of the
people cf the county voting to relocate the county
seat In Atlantic City, it might be possible to Bell
the county Jail and courthouse now at May's Land
ing to some educational institution tor a young
women's seminary. In ail seriousness, the free
holder «aid that th« high stone wall about the Jail
would keep Inquisitive young men away from the
place, and that the barred windows would keep
the girls from taking part in night escapades of
which their teachers knew nothing. It was sug
g*sted by the more practical that perhaps It would
be a good Idea to ttsjM until the buildings no longer
