The Cleveland Sportsmen Club
has issued a circular f o the sport
nlen and Clubs of the State, fa
varing the formation of a State
Sportsmen's Association. It is
thought that such a body would
have a beneficial effect, not only
so far as sportsmen are concern
ed, but would also be able to do
much for the protection of the
farmer; and it would also take an
active part in the propagation of
fish by artificial means. The Club
desires to receive the opinions of
the sportsmen of the State con
cerning the proposed meeting.

street, Cleveland, Ohio.
The attention of the opposition
anti-nepotism press generally is
respectfully invited to the alarm
ing fact that Governor Allen, has
recently appointed three broth-
ers-in laws oi his nephew, Sena-
tar Thurman, to office, and that
the new Democratic officers of
the State Penitentiary have given
their nephews subordinate offices
in that institution. Remember-ing-whata
howl of disapproba
tion went up from these "unco
good"papers whenever the Presi
dent happened to appoint one of
his relatives to office, the perfect
silence which thev now maintain
concerning the same practice, on
the part of another, is, to say the
least, not a little remarkable,aud
strongly suggests there is, or has
been, a good deal of insincerity
The Assessor will be m akin
his annual call in a few days.
Heretofore but little attention
has been paid to the collection of
statistics. In many instances far
mers have no memorandums to
show the products of their farms
for the previous year. They fill
out the blanks at random. The
result is thatHohnes county does
not make as good a showing of
products in the annual reports as
she should do. Many farmers
cannot disconnect the fear that in
some way this information is to
be used for taxation. Such is not
the fact, and assessors should be
at pains to make thai fact clear.
It is impertant that every bush
el of grain raised inHolmes coun
ty tor 1873, as well as other farm
products should be properly ac-
.Tjounted for,in order that we may
have full credit for what we do
raise, in the annual reports.

DISPOSITION OF THE DEAD;
For more than a hundred years,
persons interested in domestic
reform have been writing in fa
vor oi some other method of dis
posing of the dead than that of
burying theni. Cremation, or
burning, is the substilue ordin
arily proposed for burying.
Some of the argumonts in favor
of cremation are these : There
would be no fouling of the air
or water, as is now the case when
when bodies go into decomposi
tion in the ground. There would
be a great saving of expense in
Hie matter of shrouds, coffins,
and in the conducting of funer
als. The cost of cemetery lots
and monuments would also be
saved. Those who favor this
mode of disposing of the dead
advocate having the cremation
superintended by skilled per
sons, and in a place especially
prepared for the purpose. An
arrangement something like a
chemical furnace is prepared,
whereby the gass generated by
heating, as well as the tissues,
shall be consumed. Entire ere
mations can be effected in about
half an hour. The ashes, togetli
er witli the mineral portions of
the bones, may then be preserv
ed in vases or be buried. This
was substantially the plan of the
Romans and other Eastern na
tions. We learn that steps are
being taken in New York to
form a society to carry out this
plan. It is said that a large
number of persons ot influence
have naturally pledged them
selves to direct by will that their
Dodies be burned. This is a test
of sincerity. Let cremation be
come popular, and who would
not prefer to be purified by fire
rather than to be corrupted by
A trial of more than ordinary
interest and importance to the
general public,says the Pittsburg
Commercialjlately took place be
fore the Court of Quarter Ses
sions of Crawford county. It was
a case of alleged conspiracy, in
which the proprietor of a news
paper, JUr. Allen, of the Titns-
ville Courier, was plaintiff, and
the defendants were certain mem
bers of the Titusville Printers
Union. Five or six months ago
the Union having ordered "a
strike against a proposed reduc
tion of wages and against being
paid in orders on Titusville mer
chants," Mr. Allen yielded to
their demand as to wages,but re
jected the other demand, assert
ing his right to pay his employ
ees as lie chose. While the sub
ject was under consideration, at
least before theUnion had receiv
ed this answer, Mr. Allen tele
graphed to Pittsburg for non Un
ion printers. This dispatch vhav
ing become-known to the Union,
its officers issued a circular in
which they warned members of
the society everywhere not to
come to Titusville, and they also
appointed a committee whoso du
ty should be to prevent printers
from taking work at the Courier
office, a duty which the commit
tee fulfilled, to the serious deteri-ment-
of the proprietor. He there
fore prosecuted the printers for
conspiracy, but at their first trial
the jury were unable to agree.
Tried a second trial, they have
been convicted, and from Judge
Lowrie's charge, published-in the
Crawford Journal, one derives a
sufficiently clear notion nf the
facts and law upon which the case
At a Democratic county con
vention in Indiana, the other day,
a resolution was unanimously
passed,deniaiidiiig the immediate
and unconditional repeal of the
salary-grab law, and announcing
the stern reiusal of the delegates
to vote for anv man who was not
in favor of such repeal. It is per
haps impossible to overrate lion
esly like this particularly when
it is considered that the "salary-
grab law"' was repealed during
(he last session of Congress.
The New York Tribune is glad
to hear that the young men of
some of the western towns are
giving their temperance zeal
practical turn by forming associ
alions, the members of which
pledge themselves not to pay for
any other man's drink, and not
to drink at any other man's ex
pense. The Tribune, says the
making and adhering to' such
pledge by the young men would
immediately check the spread of
intemperance throughout the
A LITTLE PLOT.

ANOTHER LOST STEAMER.
We now have to record the loss
of another of those steamers.
which, like the oilier unforunate
ones sometime since, was cut in
two, lengthened and her build
altered. The L'Amerique was
exactly the same type as the Vil-
le du Havre and Europe. She
was on her Eastward trip, with
about sixty passengers from New
York, and arrived at Brest on
Tuesday the 14th inst. Leaving
that port for Havre, she had gone
but twenty-six miles when she
struck oil the island of Ushant, a
became a wreck. All her passen
gers and crew were saved by ves
sels in the vicinity, with one ex
ception, the second officer.
The loss of three steamers with
in so short a time two of them
meeting disaster but a few days
apart is something more than a
mere misfortune. It means, or
should mean.total ruin to the line
unless it is completely reorganiz
ed. If all of the steamers of the
line are of the class of the three
lost old steamers cut in two,
pieced out, and launched under
different names as new vessels
then, those who take passage in
them should settle their affairs
before starting and consider them
selves as going into greater dan
ger than braved by a soldier who
marches in the heat of battle to
the muzzle of the enemy's cannon
loaded with grape shot We say
nothing of the seamanship of the
commanders of these vessels, for
that is a matter yet to be investi
gated, but of tins character of the
vessels there can be now no dis
pute. The Vine du Havre, Eu
rope and L'Amerique were from
their build nothing but floating
coffins. The patching up of an
old steamer and launching her as
a new vessel under another name
is a crime against society if it is
not so designated, as it ought to
be, on the statute books.
A POSTAL CARD ITEM.
The first postal card was issued
on the lotn of May last year, or
ten months and a half ago and
up to the 1st instant exactly 100,
000,000, or the whole amount es
timated for the hrst year, were
delivered to the Government. Of
this number, the fifteen largest
cities in the country took 40,000.
000 New York city alone tak
ing 11,500,000, or nearly eight
per cent, of the whole. Next to
New York came Boston, which
took about 5,000,000, while the
city of Washington, required for
her use considerably over 1,000,-
000. It is estimated that about
10,000,000 more will be required
to meet the demand for the first
year since their introduction.
JUST LIKE THEM.
The Democracy since they came
into power in this State have made
every effort to remove cvcryRepub-
lican officer in the State that they
can get their hands upon, without
regard to any questions of capacity,
fitness or faithfulness to duty. Act
ing upon their old motto, "to the
victors belongs the spoils," they are
making a clean sweep of all Repub
lican officials to make room for their
hungry henchmen. The Penitenti
ary, orphan asylums,insane asylums
colleges and every conceivable place
where a Republican ottieer was
thought to be domiciled, has been
ransacked,and the legislature pass
ed a large portion of its time in
framing bills to legislate Republi
cans out of, and Democrats into of
fice. The cry of civil service reform
with which they went into battle un
der Greely was always a flaunting
lie, and is no more regarded than
the scores of other broken promises
of that party.
The Democratic Legislature, has ad
journed. Like the previous Democrat
ic Legislature it accomplished one good
thing it made the worst Republican
Legislature respectable by comparison,
Last fall when the election returns an-
nounccd the success of the Democratic
ticket, the newly elected members, at
onco pledged themselves to meet at Co
lumbus at tho appointed hotir, transact
all their business in a short time and re
turn to their homes at so early a day
as to save tiie State thousands of dol
lars. It was alleged that as the Consti
tutional Convention was remodelling
that instrument, that it would be use
less for the Assembly, to pass many
laws, which miIit have to be changed,
Xo one disputed this. When they as
sembled, the leading Democratic papers
said that all the business could be done
in six weeks. Gov. Allen said the same
thing. At one time they voted to ad
journ the 27th, of March, every liepub
lican voting for the adjournment. Then
the Democrats met In Caucus and re-
polvcd that It was too wintry to go lionie
yet, and they resolved to stay a month
longer in Columbus,aml still bo home la
time-for their spring work. The Demo
cratic journals shouted to them to ad
journ, but the patriots would not heed.
They continued to enjoy their position
as!av-iuakers,tintil they had spent one
hundred and six days, nearly four
months. They had all stoutly main
tained that there was no need of a ses
sion of more than six weeks. They
passed one hundred and twenty general
laws, and sixty-four local laws, and
thirty-eight joint resolutions, after as
suring the publlc,that the Constitution.

WHAT IS THE LAW.
Legal Aspect of the Temperance Movement.
The following sensible article,
written by "K. D. M.,rwc take from
the Cincinnati Gazelle of a recent
date. It is to the iKiinl.and is wor
thy of a careful persual:
There are several aspects of the
temperanci- movement, entirely dis
tinct from what n called the "wo
man's movement," and that may be
carried on to any extent and yet
leave other great questions to be
settled by society. Of course the
first great political question is what
part the law ought t take, n we
suppose all drinking shops to he
abated on any one day or year,they
might arise again. A controversy
of this sort is perpetual in its per
petual ia its very nature. Society
must, in the end, determine wheth
er it will interfere at all by lawjind
if it docs, in what way. The law
not only does interfcre.but has done
so for many years. Not only that
but it interferes in some ways stria
gently and severely. That point is
settled. Rut there remains open
(and upon which there are various
opinions) the question iu what way
shall the law interfere.-1 lliereis a
large party of Prophibitions and
that part- is increasing. Then there
is a party of licensists, who think:
the best way'to regulate or prevent
the drinking-shops is to encourage
the great ones and kill the small
ones! That is by putting the license
so high that the rich ones can pay
for it and the small ones can not!
This process will be very much like
a raau who undertook to drive off
serpents by killingthe garter-snakes
and leaving the rattlesnakes and
other vipers t go at large. It has
been tried iu Cincinnati in all possi
ble way, and the history of it can be
found in the files of the newspapers.
The Council used to license grog
shops, and they tried it high and
low, with no perceptible charge in
the state of affairs. But there was
one good game of it. As the chief
business of the grog-shops is to
manufacture pauperism and crime,
the city got a revenue to support the
paupers and punish the criminals.
But intemperance was not dimin
ished by confining drinking to la
ger and beer houses. The Washing
tonian movement did more good
than all attempts to regulate drink
ing. If the municipal government
wishes.as the United btates govern
meat does,to raise a certain amount
of revenue,the more it taxes whisky
ana tobacco the better. They are
the proper subjects of taxation. But
what do you mean by licensing
tnem? Have j'ou any right to make
drunkenness criminal, and then li
cense it? It is a contradiction of
terms. The reason, as well as all
moral principle, revolts against it.
To license a house to make drunk
enness is precisely the same as to
license a house of ill-fame. The ob
jects and results of both are crimi
nal. l oil cannot und a saloon in
the country which is not selling liq
uor to a drunkard. If a man mere
ly manufactures whisky, or sells it
to men who are not drunkards, it is
lawful business. This is what they
assumed when they began their rid
iculous application for injunctions,
oae of the most absurd things ever
undertaken by the legal profession,
To understand this, let us see what
the law is, and how it works.
1. Drunkenness is criminal by the
law and every man who contributes
to make a drunkard is liableor his
support. This seems to be forgot
ten, and the Directors of the infirm
ary can sue any liquor sellers who,
ay selling liquor to the paupers,con
tributed to make them so. Perhaps
by going into an investigation they
may get a land.
2 Any liquor seller who, by sell
ing drams, lias made, or aided ia
making, drunkards, is liable, not.as
some suppose, only to the wife aad
children of the drunkard.but to the
employer. In one word,any one in
terested in the labor of the drunk
ard can sue for the loss of the labor
of his employe.
3. The liquor sellers arc liable for
selling to a minor and can be indict
ed for it.
4. It is unlawful to sell on Sun
day, and they can be indicted for
5. All gambling is criminal, even
to ten pin alleys, and the drinking
houses can be indicted Tor permit
ting it in any torm.
-Now, how many drinking shops in
Uliio, are not violating that stat
utc? How many can be found tclio
arc not violating the criminal lairs?
The fact is,there is not one in fire
which is not liable to be indicted or
to damages for making drunkards,
This is the late; and does it not pre
sent a beautilul foundation lor an
injunction against the women? An
injunction as every lawyer knotcs, is
simply to prevent something, which,
if done, would cause irreparable
damages. Isn't it beautiful to ask
as injunction against irreparable
damages to a saloon keeper? But
such suits do good. They make
tho people look into tho law, they
rouse the public sentiment,and they
lead to clearer and more enlighten
ed views of what ought to be done.
and what may ultimately be effec
tual. It ma be, and we believe it
is, impossible to banish unnatural
excitement, and more than that, all
the depravity from the human heart.
Moreovcr.we would not be hard up
on the intemperate. The greater
portion of them would he glad
enough to escape fiora their toils.
Nor would we be hard upon the sa
loon keepers. A great many of them
are simply endeavoring to support
their family in what is a common
and they suppose, a lawful occupa
tion. The law of love.therefore, re
quires that we should not visit alto

the evil and the crimes which socie
ty deliberately permits. Ah! "socie
ty." What crimes has it to answer
for? You and I, my readers, make
society, and can we escape from the
responsibility of all the evils, and
tho crimes, and the wrongs which
have accompanied intemperance?
1 eruaps we can say we have done no
positive wrong. But can we say we
have done any positive good? Have
wo upheld these laws in the spirit in
which they were made? People arc
continually asking lor a law. ell
they get law, and the law is always
in advance oi what tnc people arc
willing to do. Not one-fourth of all
the saloons in Ohio would exist to
day if the law was enforced. Now,
take the &cheid cascatLebanon,lhc
other day. It wan asserted that
Scheie! was pursuing a lawful voea
tion, and that certain women in the
town of Morrow interuntcd his busi
ness, and were about to damage him
irreparably, by preventing his sell
ing'liquor and making drunkards.
Now let us suppose that to ho true.
It is the very first principle of eiiui-
ty that he who comes into a court
of equity must dp equity. He who
asks for law, must obey law! Well
when you come to apply this princi
ple to the saloons, where is their
standing? How many of the 8,000
drinking shops of Ohio have com
plied with the law tally? acueuland
his attorney came into the court of
Lebanon, "with the common idea
that they were pursuing a lawful vo
cation, and they had a right to ask
for protection. If they had, they
could not ask it by injunction. It
would be to make an injunction the
instrument of easy immorality in
the State and to violate law by law.
But what was the state of Tact? The
whole case is fully stated in .fudge
Smith's judgment at Lebanon. But
there is another ground which, in
judgment, effectually disposed of
this motion. That is the third viz:
That the allegations of the petition
are not true. He alleges that he
kept a house where he conducted
business according to law. From
the nature of the case, the character
of his business in this respect is di
rectly in issue, and from the proof
it is pertectly clear to my mind mat
instead of this it was a place where
intoxicating liquors were habitual
ly sold in violation of the laws of
the istate, and where gambling was
constantly being carried on.
buch a place-as this our statue ex
pressly declares to be a public nuis
ance, and which oeing snown in a
proper case would have to be order
ed by the court to shut up. Noir
the doctrine is perfectly well settled
that a nuisance.uither public or pri
vate, may he abated even by feirce,
so no breach of the peace'is commit
ted. Surely, then the means used
here, with the view of abating this
nuisance, were not unlawful or iu
derogation of the rights of the
plaintiff, for as the keeper of such
an establishment the maintainor of
a public nuisance, and a gambling
house, be can have no standing in a
court of equity, when he asks to be
protected in his unlawful and crimi
nal business. The injuction will be
dissolved at plaintiffs costs.
Four fifths of all the saloons of
Ohio are exactly on the same con
dition the saloons are on all hands
violating the law, but who enforces
the law? We come back, then, to
the great principle society must
enfore its laws, or thev are void.-
Who is society? You and I,and all
around us, who have any sense or
intelligence. The grand jury of
Hamilton county has just adjourn
ed without even the pretense of in
dicting anybody for keeping a house
of ill-tame or illegal drinking estab-
lishmentjOr a gambling house! Such
is human justice and human law!

Whereas, The war between
Spain and Cuba has been and is
now being conducted with a de
gree of barbarity shocking to all

onable prospect that Spain will
ever be able to re-establish a
dominion over the people of Cu
Whereas, In consequence of the
proximity of the seat of war to
the United States, the war has
been and is injurious to the in
terests of the people of the Unit

a prolongation of the contest
will result only in great suffer

the independence of Cuba by
Spain herself: therefore
