To Campaign Headers.
In our campaign prospectus, we
promised to send tlio Sentincl dur
ing the campaign and the week fol
lotting, with the report of the elec
tion. On account of delays in the
count, it was not possible to giye the
returns last week. This week we
have the tabulated vote of the county
and also the vote of the states, nnd
to make our promice good, "to give
the election returns," wo send this
issue to our campaigners. We hope
this last paper, although not contain
ing the "good news" we hoped to
have, will have the news as promised
and that the SoNTineL will continue
to hold a warm place in the reading
circles of the people of Hocking
This paper is our last to campaign
ers, and in saying good bye, we ex
tend the hearty invitation to "come
again" and when in town, call and
1 see us, and get a sample copy.
We ar2 ready to receive the Pros
We publish on the second page
of this issue the complete election re
turns, giving the votes of States for
president and also the congressmen
elect. The paper will be valuable to
keep for jnference.

Bno. Van Cleaf, for thirty years
ihe ever able and always faithful ed
itor of the Circleville Democrat, has
been -elected Probate Judgo of Pickt.L
a-wny county. Tho honor is one he
has earned and we congratulate him
upon this renewed expression of con
fidence the Democracy have in him.
Van was ecratehed upon about 200
tickets. This is assurance indeed,
that as an editor he has done his duty,
told the truth,aud hewed to the line;
the chips sometimes tailing upon
persons in the way.
The Cabinet of President McKin-
ley is now the absorbing subject
among the talented writers of the
grtat news papors. We will have
thi3 discussed aud guesses, wise and
otherwise made during tho winter.
The Sentinel, with ether great pa
pers, will take up the question. Wo
feel that Hocking county has timber
to make an entire cabinet.and it shall
be our pleasure to urge the claims of
our fellow statesmen in this rep-ard.
With the prudence of other great
journalists, who first "see Hanna"be

matter until wo can meet, with Hock

moler,as we know, was Money Bugs.
Out Hauna Sil's is Bob's Cannon.
When wo can get in interview, the
work of cabinet making will begin.
An election entanglement occur
red from the ignorance of the elect
ion officers in Berne township, Fair
field county, which has occasioned
provoking controversy. The ballots
were not tallied as the law provides,
each ticket as taken from tho box
tallied on all tho names, but the
stratched tickets were tallied, and
then the straight tickets counted and
the sum total of this vote was added
to talley of the scratched tiekets.
Thus Judge Slough got 13 votes on
scratched tickets and Martin 62 on
sciatched tickets. These were tallied
showing Slough's 13 votes and Mar
tin's G2, when by adding the un
scratched tickets Martin had but one
more vote than Slough. The same
plan was pursued in the case of the
candidates for congress. The count
by tallies of the scratched tickets
does not defeat Slough, but it en
dangers the elector Lentz. Tho Re
publicans of tho Election Board re
fuse to certify to the full vote, aud
the Democrats refuse to certify to the
tallied vote. A dead lock ensued and
the case has gone to the supremo
court, from which body an order has
been asked, to compel the Election
Board to make a return. Later
On Tuesday, and before the court
took up the case, the matter was set
tled, by counting the tallied vote of
scrtched tickets, giving Slough and
Lentz certificates of election.
AN ART LOAN EXHIBITION.
For several years the Sentinel
has suggested that during the Holi
day season, we give a Logan Expos
ition; a Fair in which can be dis
played the useful and ornamental,
the good and the pretty in our pos
session. We have had no Fair lor
years. We have had no exhibits of
the rare and curious, the relicts of
historical interest, the handiwork of
Why could not our ladies, during
the Holiday week, prepare an expos
ition of such attractions, as would
delight us, and -keep us at home, in
stead of going to foreign cities to
see works of art and excellence, not
so good, at best not any better, than
we. possess ourselves. We have
flowers riveling in rarity and beauty
any garden in our state. Our ladies
have fancy woik that would merit
award in the world's exposition. Our
stock of rare aud curious articles,
would be a museum of interest and
instruction. Our school children
could display work that would be
object lessons to the most learned and
accomplished. Our gardens could
produce specimens, and our orchards
fruits that would niako us proud of
the county of products. We have
articles of manufactured goodi.made
here aud possessed here that will vie
wun me woiKroans.up ui any artisan
tho country boasts.
Let us have an Exposition. Our
artists will show pictures that have
slate awards', our ladies can show
needle work that cau not be excelled,
our mechanics can exhibit articles of
handicraft, such as the great majority
of our people have never dreamed it
possible to make. Our schools can
make the exposition a counterpart of
the university. Our store-keepers
can put on exhibition articles that
will excite tho envy of the metropoli
tan windows, and most of us have a
book, a picture, a work of art, a ge
ological specimen, a historic relic or
a present curiosity wh:ch we would
be glad to show.
Let's think the matter over. An
admission might be charged, so as to
exclude tho indifferent idlers, and
tho proceeds given to the poor. At
auy rate, we can save our money by
staying at homo aud have as much
real enjoyment m seeing things of
interest and beauty, as though wc
went a thousand miles in search of a
Hoi id a v festival.

abstract of votes, which when com-
posed with the vote, also published
of last year, will show, that our
Democratic gains in the Democratic

to the terms of the fusion, not ouly
won us the victory, but built us tho
splendid majority of 450. The Pop

Has the election any thing to do
with this Republican weather?
TWICE WAS HE SURPRISED
Once by Heing Elected and the
Other Time by Being
Three years ago W. II. Wuitzell
of Logan, was an employe of the
Boy's Indnstrsl School. He was nom
inated ono day by the liepublicaus
of Hocking county for the office of
Probate Judgn.but "little Hocking"
being Democratic at that time, the
nomination was considered by every
one, and especially by Mr. Weitzell,
as nothing more than an empty hon
or. Mr. Weizell did very little election
eering, but attended strictly to his
duties at the Reform Farm. On elect
day he went to Logan and voted and
returned that evening to resume his
duties at the Farm. The next morn
ing he surprised beyond measure
when ho was informed that he had
been elected, and it was some time
before he could beleive that Hocking
county had flopped over into the Kep
He served three years and this
year worked hard for a reelection but
he tailed, his democratic opponent be
ing elected by a majority of 445.
Part of this surprise story is a tact.
Judge Weitzell did expect to be
elected this election, aud was surpris
ed that he was not, aud he expected
tho election three years ago, but he
didn't tell it. He gave out the im
pression that he didn't want the
nomination and didn't intend to both
er about the campaign.lt was thought
even by his intimate friends, that he
was going on regularly with some
i work undeP contract at the 3b te

ors hid, and in old clothes was pok
ing around the country, looking after
stone quarries, inquiring for tan bark
pricirrg milk cows, and tho sundry
divices of an old lime campaigner.
He didn't have a bras3 band nor a
cannon, nor an introductr. He per
pretrated a surprise though, on all
of us, but was not suprised himself.
He says he didn't keey a book, didn't
know how many liars there were, but
he found out a great deal about the
tan bark and hoop pole crop, the lo
cation of stone for quarries, and the
price of milk cows. There was too
much loud speaking for the judge
this time, and his tactic? didn't win.
Ho was surprised to be cjefeated
when there was such a combination
of talent working to elect him.
William J. Bryan.
Mr. Bryan has no reason bo ashamed
of his vote or the part he took in the
campaign. It is no exaggeration to
say that, despite all the misrepresen
tations to which he was subjected
while the camgaign lasted, he stands
in enviable esteem with the people
of the whole country, who admire
the man for the grand contest he
made, the wonderlnl endurance he
displayed and the remarkaele oral or-
ical powers which he exhibited. Youug
as he is, Mr. Bryan will certainly be
heard from again, and political hon
ors higher than he has as yet attained
are unquestionable in store for him.
Should the next administration fail
to bring back prosperity to the land,
Mr. Bryan will unquestionably be a
presidential candidate four years
hence, and of his election then there
would be no question. Let us hope
that the outcome of our national con
test will prove to be for the best in
terests of the country, all of whose
citizens now unite in wishiug the
President-elect the largest possible
measure of adminstrative success.
The Campaign Now Before Us.
We have an important campaign,
now demanding our euergy, and our
every attention.- The country has
beened saved. Logan needs our
help. During the hard times of the
summer and the political distractions
of the fall, over good old town, our
home has been neglected.
Wo have lots of thing3 to look
after now, our city library, our
schools, our churchus, our neighborly
social relations, and our g-eneral bus
Public meetings of merchants, of
teachers, of men of the professions
are in order and each and all should
now give some thought and speech
making for that matter, to the issues,
vital to the health, happiness aud
prosperity of our home, Logan.

and invites suggestions upon all sub
jects that have in view local interests.

The Companion Calendar.
It is said that the expense of mak
ing tho Companion Art Calendar for
1897 was so great that had it been
published in the usual quantity it
could not be sold for less than on3
dollar. Four beautiful female figures
are reproduced on four folding pag. s
Each figure is lithographed in twelve
colors, being a true reproduction of
the original water-color painting,
which was selected because of its ex
cellence of design and charm of co'or
and tone. The size of each of the
four folding pages is 10 by 0 inches.
It is by far the best piece of color
work theCompaniou has ever offered.
Both as a calendar and as a gem of
the lithographer's art, it is so attract
ive that it becomes a valuable addit
ion to tho mantel or C3ntre-table of
any room. It is given free to all new
subscribers sending 61.75 to the
Companion for the year 1897, who
receive also the paper free from the
time the subscription is received till
January 1, 1897.
Celebrating in 1897 its seventy
first birthday, the Companion ofiura
its readers many exceptionally brill
iant features. Fully two hundred of
the most famous men and women of
both continents have contributed to
the next year's volume of the paper.
