with children playing about, but for

OUR COUNTY MATTERS.
During the past week our County
Commissioners have had several meet
ings counselling as to what they should
do in the present stats of affairs. It
seems that one of them was in favor of
urging Newton to resign and the other
two were either opposed to it, or did not
want to take any action upon the mat
ter. Saturday was a busy day. 2ew-
ton proposed to resign provided they
would appoint the person he would
name to fill the vacancy. As there were
several candidates for' the position, no
decision was arrived at that day. Xew
ton's counsel opposed h is 'resignation
strongly. Tbe matter went over till
Monday. The Commissioners again
met and concluded to accept Kewton'a
proposition. They accepted Ids resig
nation and appointed J. J. Sullivan to
fill the vacancy. In doing this it will
be seen that the Commissioners, instead
of making their own terms, accepted
the terms of the retiring Auditor. Had
some other party, not connected in any
way with the ring or tbe late nomina
tion been chosen, Sullivan's chances for
election would have been much better.
As it now is, 'liis goose is cooked" as
the saying is. His defeat is made sure
by-bls acceptance of the office, at the
instigation of the guilty party just re
tiring. This ought to be enough to
prove clearly and distinctly, that Sul
livan, perhaps unknowingly, has been
the dupe of the ring. At least he is the
man that they worked so hard to have
nominated and elected. And now when
it becomes necessary to turn over the
office to some other party, he Is the man
aiidtuc only man? that they will con
sent to have. Now why is this ? There
certainly must be some reason for It.
There are some who would have us
think, with themselves, that Sul
livan is not the ring candidate. With
the facts now before us we don't know
how any'ono can come to any other con
elusion than that he is. He is the man
tbe ring leaders declared mutt be elec
ted. He' Is 'the "man that' most take
Newton's place, or. he would not resign.
What stronger proof do you wish to
have? It Is not our desire to misrep
resent anybody In the least, but simply
to state the truth, as we see it. Facta
are stubborn things, and straws will
shew which way the wind blows.
WHO ARE FOR LICENSE?
In short, all those who are favorable
to the interests of the whlsky-riug; ex
ceptionally, those who think that a li
cense law would advance true temper
In looking over our State, we behold
tho troubling of waters, the beginning
e! a mightjv agitation, the commence
ment of a stern battle between the ad
vocates of license, and the opponents
thereof. The wide-spread and whole
some awaking of tbe public mind upon
the question of temperance during the
last six months has wrought its work,
ana to-day the lines between right and
wrong are more closely drawn than ev
or before. Hen of true principle find
that the enemy is a strong and wary
one, and In the struggle with king alco
hol the highest stand must betaken and
zealously maintained. Liquor dealers,
and their host of friends, as the dar of
contest draws near, are growing" more
determined, more cunning, more active,
and realizing the weight of public opin-l
ion against them, are fighting Inch by
Inch for vantage-ground.
License, in this case, means to grant
permission to sell intoxicating liquors,
upon the payment ofa certain specified
sum. It is claimed bv certain well-
meaning advocates oflicens tuatitcan
be made so high that the privlledge of
dealing will be confined to a compara
tively few' aristocratic palaces, thus do
ing away with the horde of miserable
"saloons." This is at once fallacious
aud unreasonable, for all experience
proves that this can and will not be
done, and it Is a principle of justice that
If license be granted it must be upon
conditions accessible to all the citizens
of the common wealth. Licensing the
system of dram selling is but giving the
authority of the state to a traffic that is
at once unjust, iniquitous and God-
cursed. For this reason, if for no oth
er, license should not be granted, nor
receive the votes of the people of Ohio
on the 18th of August.
True temperance men, those who
would put the brand of disapprobation
upon the traffic, will vote "no license."
Many saloonlsts, who are too short
sighted to look beyond the license lee to
the action of a Leglslature,wllivote"no
icense," for economy's sake. But "li
cense" authority to do as we please
will be demanded by tbe mass of whis
ky lovers and whisky bloats, and
against these we have to contend. Did
they date to do it, "free trade" would
be the cry, but acting on the principle,
"Take what you can get, and hope for
more," and fearful of losing all, they
simply ask for license. If they should
gain this, then the former would be the
object of their desires, and constantly
aimed "at. In New York City,, four
thousand ot the liquor dealers that is,

The Girl to FindJ The true girl has
to be sought after. She does not parade
herself in show goods. She is not fash
ionable. Generally she is not rich. But
oh I what a heart she has when you find
her so large, and pure, and womanly,
When-you sec it you wonder if those
showy things outside are women. If
you gain her love, your two thousands
are millions. She'll not ask you for a
carriage or a first-class house. She'll
wear simple dresses, and turn them
when necessary, with no vulgar mag-
ulficate to frown upon her economy.
She'll keep everything neat and nice in
your sky parlor, and give you such a
welcome when- you come home, that
you'll think' your power higher than
ever. Shell entertain true friends on a
dollar, and astonish yon with the new
thought how little happiness depends
on money. She'll make you love home
(if you don't you're a brute), and teach
you how to ptty while you scorn a poor
fashionable society that thinks itself
rich and vainly tries to think itself
happy. Now, do not, I pray you, say
any more, "I can't afford to marry.'

COR. SHANK P. W. DRAKE,
JOHN WEATHEREBEE, N. H. JONES.
We feel confident that these Republican
brethren are sincere and honest in their
belief, and have faith in Mr. Sullivan's
honesty and purity of motives. We
have nothing whatever to say against
his honesty and his character. We have
always respected him as a gentleman,
and do not wish to misrepresent him in
anything whatever. Yet wo must say
with all candor that our Republican
friends, whose names appear in the
above letter, arc entirely mistaken in
their views, and perhaps are letting
their persouai friendship for the candi
date, blind their better judgment. They
say that Mr. Sullivan is not the ring
candidate. They simply assert this
without giving any proof, further than
that they "know him tq be a man of
good character, a good citizen," and
that they "believe him to be indepen
dent of auy cllquesfor rings." If he is
not the ring candidate, who is? Let
us see whether he is or not. He is the
man whom Keed, Newton aud others,
from the very start, were urging the
people to support. He Is the man who
they said muit and will be elected if it
costs thousands of dollars. He Is tbe
man, and the only man, in whose favor
the guilty officer would resign the Au
ditor's office. Do not all these things
point explicitly to the facts that he is
the ring's favorite candidate? Even
the better thinking class of Democracy
denounce him as the rlug candidate,
aud say they will not have anything
to do with him owing to the posltiou he
has taken. We claim, therefore, that
we have not misrepresented Mr. Sulli
van, and much less slauu.r.d him, by
stating that ha is the ring candidate.
We desire to de what is right and hon
orable, and wisli to wroug no one. We
trust our friends above mentioned will
see just how tbe matttrstands, and will
assist in doing what will be for the best
interest of the county at large, and not
blame us for doing, our duty.
Ocr Coal Fields. There may be
other counties in the State that have
more extended coal fields than we have
in Holmes, yet we doubt If there are
any of much better quality, or easier to
be worked than ours are. Our hills are
full of coal. There are thousands of
acres of it that have never been opened
yet. One day last week we visited the
bank on Saunders' farm, now operated
by Bowcu Bros. We were surprised to
see the amount of labor they have done,
and are still doing in order to get their
coal to tlie railroad. An Incline plane
of about a thousand feet in length Is
being built, and at the end of that a
tram road, of about the same length.
These will carry the coal to the cars.
The railroad company have agreed to
extend the track already laid as far as
the Hardy Company's Bank, some two
hundred yards farther up tbe ravine in
order to get tbe coal from Saunders'
bank. The Bowen Bro3. are to make
the road bed, and the company will put
down the iron. In two or three months
time they expect to have' this work com
pleted and be ready to ship. It has
cost a pile of money, and a good deal of
time, which shows that they have a good
thing, and expect to make some money
out of it. We wero taken through the
bank and were very muclTpleAwrt with
the appearance of things iu general.
Tbe equipments are first-class, and ev
erything pertaining to tbe business is
kept in tho best of order. The drain
age of the different parts is excellent.
One would think that there was enough
coal in that one bank to supply the
State oi Ohio for years to come. The
vein is from three to lour and a half
feet thick and is of most excellent
quality as our citizens know. The
Boweu Bros, are hard working men,
and if there is any money to be made
by hard work, they will have their
share. In a few months time they will
have things just as they want them.
New Bripqe over Saltcreee. Last
summer a new bridge over Saltcreek,
near Holmesvllle, was granted by the
Commissioners, and the contract was

extend at least six Inches beluw the bed
of the stream which would make the
foundation at each end six feet in depth.
The contractor, whoever lie was, as we
are informed, instead of going down
the six feet, made the abutments twenty-
thru inches. When tbe job was com
pleted tbe Commissioners took it
off his hands and paid bim the money,

At this age of the world, and in this
country, a newspaper must be allowed
to chronicle passing events. If any
one objects to this he had better quit
taking papers and undertake to edit
and publish one himself. Then he might
stand a chance to get the foolish con

In this age of scepticism, facts are

to vote for "no license" clause
First, Because it denies the right of
the State to license crime.
Second, Because itcmpowers the Leg

Third, It gives power to restrict the

Fourth, Because the "no license"
clause leaves open" the door to legal pro
