i Birthday Party.
A very pleasant birthday remem
brance was held Sunday at the resi
dence of our fellow-townsman, Chas.
Polker. It was the birthday anni
versary of both Mr. Polker and his
estimable wife, he being 48 vears old
while she passed her 40th mile stone.
About 75 people were present and a
moat enjoyable time was had.
Those from a distance were Mr.
Henry Genther and wife, of Wause
on, aDd Mr. John Wolf and wife, of
A Short Story.
The Bull Dog Club had quite an
experience on their return drive from
Holgate Sunday, where they had
taken Jim Allen to catch the B & O
for his California trip. When about
five miles out of Holgate near the
Knipp farms,a little girl called to
them from the side of the road, but as
it was dark no attention was paid to
her. The little tot however ran after
the buggy and wanted them to stop.
They asked her where she lived and
she said Holgate, and from answers
to other questions, the boys made out
she had lost her way. It seems she
lived near Holgate and had gone to
Sunday school in the afternoon. Her
usual way home after school was
down the railroad track, but her
young companions frightened her so
by telling about snakes they had seen
going that way that she took anoth
er path home and got lost. The boys
kindly turned around and took the
little girl, who turned out to be Liz
zie Gottwald, back to Holgate. Her
parents were getting anxious about
her and a search party was just be
ing organized when the Club drove
up with their find.
Alice J. Kline, daughter of J. P.
and C. M. Gibbs, was born in Hope,
Warren county, N. J., April 26th,
1849, and at the age of 9 years re
moved with her parents to Wyandot
county, O., where she grew to wom
anhood. She removed in 1866 to the
home in which she died, and here
formed acquaintances and made
friends with all by whom she was sur
rounded, and who now mourn her de
cease. On Oct. 11th, 1871, she was
married to Abram Kline. The fruits
of this union was a family of four
sons and one daughter, who were the
objects of her constant love and care.
But the ' time came when these
earthly ties must be broken. She, feel
ing it near at hand, with an unfalter
ing faith in her prospects for the en
joyments awaiting her, welcomed
death as only a transition to tne bet
ter in the ' mansions of rest. She
quietly bade an affectionate farewell
to loved ones here and joined those
gone before. There is a vacancy in
another home. A husband mourns
the loss of a dear and loving wife; the
children, a kind and affectionate
mother. An aged mother, three sis
ters and one brother are left to share
the temporary loss which to her is
Card of Thanks.
We wish to return our sincere
thanks, to our friends and neighbors,
for their kindness duringthe sickness
and burial of our dear wife and ruoth-

A Child Lost.
On Saturday, April 1st. a child was
reported lost. After some excitement
and quite a little search, the mother
found it in Saur & Balsley's Drug
and Book Store looking at the beau
tiful patterns of wall paper. Many
older people find it very interestingto
spend an hour or two in looking over
this stock, for the reason that so
many of the patterns are novel and
entirely new. Any one who expects
or intendB to have any papering
done, will surely make a great mis
take if they fail or neglect to exam
ine the papers at this bouse and at
the same time get the low prices at
which they are being sold. Hundreds
of rolls are being carried away this
spring by those who have taken the

Wbat Becomes of Assessor's Blanks.
The assessors have begun their
regular spring visits to the people.
Some persons may think that the
blanks left at their homes are de
stroyed after being returned to the
county auditor. Such is not the case.
The blanks are kept, and stored
away in the auditor's office. As each
blank has to be signed by the party
with whom it is left, the county
auditor's office is a good place to find
the autograph of your neighbor or
your neighbor's wife, if the head of
the household has no property in his
own right. The auditor's collection
of autographs beats all the other col
lections in the county, and as they
come to him without any personal
solicitation on his part, he may be
said to be an easy winner of the rib
bon for autogrraph collecting. No
other man can afford to have as
many agents out collecting signa
tures. If any one can tell how many
families there are in the county, he
can eome near telling how many
autographs there will be filed ' with
Auditor Resh in a few weeks.

From Toledo to Kurope.
The first shipment of corn direct
from Toledo to Europe is being made
this week. Eight Canadian vessels
will carry the shipment, and it is in
tended to ship about 8,000,000 bushels
of corn in this way this spring. And
in the early part of the summer it is
expected that about 5,000,000 bushels
of wheat will be taken toi Europe in
the same way. It is believed grain
shipments direct from the" port of To
ledo to Europe will be profitable, and
why it should not be is past under
standing. But why is it that Canadi
an vessels carry the grain instead of
American vessels? That is a condi
tion of things which should not be.
American trade should be built up
again on the high seas.

HEKBI COUHTI FINANCES.
Editor Northwest: Please allow
me space in your valuable paper to
make a few additional remarks con
cerning the affairs of the county, to
whioh the attention of the taznavera
has been called by reason of the var
ious conflicting statements published
within the last two vears. I will not
allow myself to be forced into a bi
ased or partisan discussion of this
very important and vital problem, af
fecting the welfare and prosperity of
every property owner in the county.
All deserve respectful attention, and
every person who has honored me
with a careful and candid perusal of
all my published statements will do
me the justice to say that they have
been strictly non-partisan; and Mr.
Russell is mistaken if he reallv thinks
that I intended that republicans or
any other class of citizens should be
hindered from reading my last state
ment. On the contrary. I am verv
much obliged to Mr. Russell for nnh-
lishing my last statememt. Not that
I think for a moment that republicans
do not read any other county papers
except the Signal, for I concede to
republicans the same high decree of
intelligence and disposition to glean
information from other papers and
fields of instruction, as I claim for anv
other party. If, however, Mr. Rus
sell thinks that republicans would
have failed to see and read the state
ment had he not published it. then I
am doubly obliged to him, and on ac
count of his reply to the same my at
tention has been called to a few er
rors that appeared in the statement.
In speaking of the constantly in
creasing indebtedness of the county
fund and the additional levy that
would have paid the floating debt of
that fund at the close of the fiscal
year of 1887, and kept the fund self
sustaining thereafter and even down
to the present time, I intended that
the statement should read as follows:
"If the levy for these five years had
been four and four tenths mills in
stead of three and one tenth mills, a
difference of one and three tenths
mills, the result would have been vast
ly different. The county fund on the
1st day of Sept., 1892, would have de
clared an amount on hand above all
indebtedness and expenditure of
of $1,226.89 instead of a deficit of
$40,477.16. This additional levy of
only one and three tenths mills would
have proven to be immensely in the
interest of the tax-payers of Henry
county, and the additional levy of one
and three tenths mills scarcely felt,
and the bonded debt for which the
whole county is held and firmly bound
would have been on the 1st day
of January 1893, $130,000 instead of
$105,000, etc'' - Also, in speaking of
the duplicate valuation of the 88
counties in Ohio, I meant to have
said that the valuation of 79 of them
was greater than, that of Henry
county and only eight of less valua
tion. There were other minor errors
too tedious to mention, and the only
exemption I claim from criticism for
errors committed is that I was reared
in the log cabin and puncheon floor
era, before the pedagogue and journ
alist had penetrated the wilderness
to any great extent, and therefore I
have a very limited experience in pre
paring manuscript for publication to
be criticised by an experienced and
1 The principals of mathematics of
the log cabin era and the present era
are nevertheless the same, and yet
Mr. Russell, after having had the
honor of being auditor of Henry
county for three years, does not speak
the same language to the tax payers
of Henry county as the present in
cumbent, who has had a like honor
for two and two thirds years. This
is conclusive evidence, if they are en
tirely sincere, and the present incum
bent for himself avers to be, that the
masses of the people are entirely ex
cused for having a very imperfect
knowledge of the finances of the
county, when auditors themselves
disagree. I am astonished at the at
tempt made by Mr. Russell to reply
to the comparison made in my last
statement as ,9 the di3f?rC2G6 in pay
ing the principal of a bonded debt in
yearly payments, and paying all the
principal at the close of the last year
to wnicntne aeDt is to run. l am im
pelled to say, without any comment
whatever, that Mr. Russell, although
intelligent in the main, is superlative
ly the most illogical, fanciful and vis
ionery journalist I ever' knew. He
claims that the bond sale of $100,000
of 1890, at 4 per cent., and due aud
Eayable in 1905, is the best sale of
onds ever made in the county. If he
means that it was the best sale ever
made prior to 1890, I agree with him,
but if he includes in that assertion
the several sales of bonds made since
the year 1890 and to be paid in in
stallments, then I do not agree with
him for the following reason, to-wit:
If this bonded debt of $100,000, issued
in 1890 at 4 per cent., is paid as per
contract, it will cost in interest $00,
000. It has cost in expense to refund
and place the bonds as per Mr. Rus
sell's statement, $3,125, total when
Eaid, $163,125. Suppose these same
onds had been issued to run 10 years
at o per cent., ana after tne 3rd year
to be paid in 7 annual installments as
follows: $10,000 in 1894 and $15,000
each of the remaining six years. The
cost then would have been in interest
$35,750, principal $100,000, total cost
$135,750, or a saving to the people in
favor of the payment of the debt by
installments at 5 per cent, interest, of
$27,375. Now if these bonds had been
issued as above stated, the purchaser
of the bonds would have had a better
investmest than had the purchaser of
the bonds sold Jan. 1st, 1893, when
the money market was much more
stringent than in 1890. The invest
ment would have been better because
these bonds .of $35,000 of 1893 were
only on interest one year, and each
succeeding year the principal will be
$7,000 less until paid. But if the bonds
of $100,000 of 1890 had been issued as
above stated, the whole $100,000 would
have drawn 5 per cent, interest for
the first four years, and there is not
the least doubt but that those bonds
might have been so issued and sold
at par when the county bonds of 1893
and the Beaver Creek,- Lost Creek
and Fish ditch bonds all sold at a
premium, and all to be paid in install
ments. And I will say that the com
missioners are' fully determined to
pay all the bonded debt of $100,000
and also the $30,000 in installments,
if the bonds oan be procured, and
save the taxpayers from the payment

In conclusion allow me to say that
in this and each former statement I
have aimed to keep within the bounds
of truth as found in the records, by
which I am willing to be judged. I
have no desire to evade, conceal or
leave out anything for the purpose of
misleading the people in the interest
of any party or otherwise. I believe
that every officer who assisted in the
management of this bonded debt,
from alpha to omega, did the very
best he could under the circumstanc
es, and two of the commissioners who
assisted in refunding the bonds of 1890
also assisted in the issue of the bonds
of 1893. I have no desire to misrep
resent, censure or condemn any offi
cer present or past, but I am very de
sirous to unite with every officer and
citizen in the county in the adoption
of the swiftest, most successful and
economic method of paying the
county debt and meeting current ex
penses with the lowest possible levy
consistent with honest compensation
for services actually rendered.
Very respectfully submitted,
J. H. Resh.
Gold In the Treasury.
Washington, April 28. The treasury
gold was reduced Tuesday to $100,600,

future for the yellow metal, but it ia
