After a day spent In wrangling the
Youngstown labor convention mem
bers adjourned Saturday without en
dorsing anybody. Although Congress
man Kennedy was present ho was re
pudiated for his vote on the eight
hour law in a fierce speech by M.
Grant Hamilton, personal representa
tive of Samuel Gompers, president of
the American Federation of Labor.
Down In Holmes county a farmer
bought a can of Boston baked pork
and beans at a grocery store and upon
taking the stuff home and opening it
found a set of false teeth mixed up
with the beans. Of course the con
tents of the can had a warm reception
from the garbage barrel. People
working around canning factories
should leave their store teeth at home.
According to the detailed statement
of financial transactions for the year
ending August 31, filed by the county
commissioners and as published in the
News last Saturday, it will be observed
that the amount expended by the com
missioners for the Stark county work
house during the last year is some
thing like $15,000. No statement of
receipts realized from the institution
is shown in the report.
About the first thing that happened
In Xenla after the saloons were open
ed up, under the provision of tho
Aikln law, was for the first lieutenant
of the local military company to get
drunk and issue orders to the privates
to prepare at once for a trip to Cuba.
Before the "boys" had their guns
cleaned up the lieutenant had been
jailed and the trip was postponed.
Further inquiry developed the fact
that no orders had been received by
the officer for war preparations.
PRIMARY QUESTION WILL GO TO
Attorneys Turner and Pomeren&
havo rendered an opinion for the
board of elections to the effect thai
the expenses of the second Republican
primaries, to be held next Saturday
for the nomination of a congressman
are legal and that the expenses of the
same, amounting to thousands of dol
lars, must be borne by the taxpayers.
The section of the law which they
base their opinion on is as follows:
"Sec. 291C. When any voluntary po
litical association or party, in any
county, township or municipal corpo
ration, by a vote of a majority of its
executive or controlling committee,
certifies under oath by its chairman
and secretary, shall cause notice of
the selection of party candidates, com
mitteemen, delegates, or alternates to
any party convention to be published,
and shall make application therefor
to the deputy state supervisors of elec
tions or board of deputy state super
visors and inspections of elections as
the case may be, of such county, all
as hereinafter provided, such primary
election shall be held and conducted
under the provisions of this chapter."
The section of the law quoted, how
ere, does not contemplate the selec
tion of district candidates. It does
recognize the selection of delegates to
district conventions, however, but In
the calls issued In the various coun
ties, no delegates are to be chosen, it
Is understood that the courts will be
obliged to pass upon the matter before
Auditor Oberlin will honor any war
rants drawn on the county for tho
payment of the expenses. And he is
right, too. If a check was not put on
by some official with backbone the of
fice seeking politicians of the county
might demand a primary election for
the nomination of somebody for some
petty office every jeek and let the
farmers pay the bills. Tho taxpayers
of tho county, who have the bills to
pay will, according to all reports, car
ry the matter to tho polls, as Auditor
Oberlin Is backed in his determination
to turn down the bills by the Farm
ers' association of the county.

turned from a meeting of the Sultana

that architects are now at work on de

After the meeting the commission
went to Now York where they visited
tho bronze metal plants, and inspect
ed tho many different styles of monu
ments. While there Mr. Zaiser was
fortunate in meeting several old
friends who took them in tow during
their brief stay. They visited Boston
on the same mlssiop, going from there
to Burlington, Vt.,,and up to Barry,
Vt., which is in tho midst of the gran
ite region. They spent several days
among the quarries and saw granite
of every shade. While there they
took the opportunity of visiting tho
Green Mountains and one of the party

business with a very limited time they

They traveled altogether at night,
making observations through tho day

The monument is to be erected in
memory of tho men of Ohio who lost
their lives in the explosion of the ill
fated steamer Sultana by which 1700
lives were wiped out, and only 500
Of the 1700, fully two-thlrde were

man from New York.
All the states represented are con
templating similar memorials but as
Ohio had tho largest representation,
they have been waiting for this state
to make the initiative. For this pur
pose the sum of $15,000 has been ap
propriated and as soon as our monu
ment is completed, the rest will make
an effort to have their legislatures

That was nothing to alarm a boy
of twelve, although tho half-wild
pigs that swnrmed tho woods wero

thick upon the ground.

matter that ho had so much farther
to carry his load home? Chestnuts
wero $1.75 a bushel and Saturday
came only once a week.
But when the sun was leaving tho
tree-tops above him and getting tan
gled up among those to the west, tho
boy began to realize that he had
rather a largo job on hand to tako
that iwo-bushcl bag nearly full of
nuts homo before dark. In fact it
seemed to be an actual Impossibility,
for he could not even lift the load.
Loath to leave his, hard day's work
behind, ho resorted In an absont
minded sort of way to tho boy's
remedy for all difficulties, his pock
ets Ho found there nothing more
promising than a lot of stout linen
cord, and, rather as a pastime than
from any serious purpose, he began
to knot this Into a rude harness, one
end of which ho attached to the bag

would at the other end, he could not
draw the bag any distance.

At least neither undertook to re
