The Only Democratic Paper in the County
Ed. Goss Meets an Awful
And Body Mangled Neath
Mr. Ed. Goss, olio of the bostLand the matter continued.
known farmers and teamsters in
Hocking County, was almost in
stantly killed, Monday evening,
by being caught under sbmp logs
ho was unloading at Kesslor's fac
tory, on Gallagher Avenue.
Mr. Goss, along wifh others, had
driven li is team up to the unload
ing place, and had placed his skids
preparatory to rolling the logs
down toward tho saw mill. He
stepped between the skids to un
fasten tho chain that held the load,
and as the chain loosened three of
the' logs rolled off. -Tho first two
merely struck tho skids and rolled
on, knocking Goss down in thoir
course. The third one however,
was 6nly ten feet long, and would
not reach the skids, falling direct
ly between them. It apparently
landed on his face and the upper
part of his body. The entire front
of the head wns crushed. Dr.
Ohorrington, who was near the
scone, hastened to his assistance,
but the unfortunate man lived
only a fow minutes.
Ed. Goss had probably as wide
an acquaintance as any man living
in this section, having spent all
his life in the neighborhood; He
.had years of experience in lumber
hauling, and his sad death is only
another instance of how familar
one may grow with a dangerous
Job. Tho loud that killed him was
a large one, such as he was accus
tomed to handle.
Mr. Goss leaves" a wife and sev
eral children, who have the sincere
sympathy of the entire community.

Saturday evening, at about

of Marshal Allon, who hud., pro

Warden 0. P. Gould, of the
Ohio penitentiary, called to pay
his respects to Governor Harris
Friday afternoon, and report says
ho is making an effort to remain
at the head of that institution.
At the last meeting of tho board
Price Russell, of Wayne county,
was elected warden, his appoint
ment to become effective August 1.
Tho board made tho change at the
request of Governor Pattison, but
it is now said an effort will be
made to dispose of Russell by hav
ing tho board reluso to approve
the minutes of tho meeting at
which Mr. Russell was elected
warden. This would, of course,
dispose of the secretary as well, as
he was elected at the same meet
ing. It is understood that Fiank

tary, is not a candidate for the
Governor Harris does not intend
to borrow any trouble. lie is not
going to cross any bridge it-.til he
comes to it, and whether he will
then burn it tfehind him, remains
to be seen. He says he is not
worrying any about an extra ses
sion of the legislature, but will do
his duty in the matter if the courts
should knock out many of the laws
on the ground that they were not
presented in fact to Governor
Pattison for his signature.
Senators Foraker and Dick and
General Grosvenor, according to
Washington advices, appear to be
a little excited over this matter,
and it is said the two senators are
anxious also to havo Governor
Harris appoint a lieutenant gov
ernor. General Grosvenor, how
ever, maintains that Harris is
simplv acting governor, und that

governor, James M. Williams, a

Ohioans here subscribe to the old

argue that tho Republicuns must

that General Harris is now 71
years of age. Tho party leaders
in Washington havo been making
some splendid political plans since

the .late governor's fuuornl has
taken place, the Republican lead

Anti - Spitting Ordinance
TAX LEVY FOR 1906
Is Passed, and Bunch of
Tho city fathois disposed of a
good grist of business at their
regular meeting, Tuesday evening,
all tho members being present.
Tlio ordinance to license shows,
exhibitions and other performances
was read for tho third time, and
finally adopted as read. It pro
vides for a license fee varying from
one to twenty-five dollars per day,
in the discretion of the Muyor, and
fixes the penalty at five to fifty
Col. Weldy introduced a resolu
tion calling upon Mayor Dollison
for the strict enforcement of the
ordinance" already on the books,
regulating the use of fireworks on
the Fourth of July. The Mayor
produced a copy of the proclama
tion relative to this matter issued
by him Tuesday, and read it to the
Council. It prohibits absolutely
the use of cannon-crackers and the
vexations dynamite or "explosive'
canes. The resolution was adopt
ed, and it is understood that this
regulation will be enforced.
An ordinance for the abatement
of certain public nuisances was
introduced by Mr. Lanning. It is
designed to abolish the pernicious
habit of spitting on the sidewalk,
and provides for a penalty of one
to five dollars for violations. Col.
Weldy took the floor and stated
that he wished to introduce, as a
substitute for this ordinance, one
making it a misdemeanor, punish
able by fine and imprisonment, for
ladies to appear on the streets with
their skirts less than two iuches
from the ground. He nlso voiced
his belief that the anti-spitting
law, if passed, would be a dead
letter, and asserted that similar
provisions in other places, notably
Lancaster and Columbus, have
proved failures. Mr. Thurness
moved to suspend the rules and
place the ordinance on its final
passage. Mr. Lanning, in second
ing this motion, said that tho Col
umbus 'and Lancaster ordinance
are enforced, and declared it a
shame and a disgrace for a pro
gressive town to permit its side
walks to bo splattered and frescoed
as they are. Ho instanced the
condition of tlio now coment pave
ment around.the Rempel Bank.
After some discussion of tho merits
of tho ordinance, carried on for
the most part by Messrs Weldy
and Thurness, a vote was taken,
and it wus passed, four to two,
Weldy and Shaw dissenting.
An ordinance to levy taxes for
municipal purposes for tho year
1000, was introduced by Mr
Anglo. It apportions the levy as

Under a suspension of tho rules,

motion by Mr. Lanning to again

in for discussion again. Several
locations were mentioned, and the

Mr. Lanning registered a vigor
ous kick on the practice of allow
ing the immense loads of clay fur
nished to the Logan Clay Product J
Company to be hauled over the i
eastern paved portion of Main,
Street. He stated that the louds
average 8000 pounds, and many of
them run over 0000 pounds; that
about fifty such loads per day pass
over the pavement in question,
and some of them on nnrrow-tired
wugons; and gave it as his opinion
that tho paving, under such wenr
as this, will not last until it' is
paid for. Tho city solicitor was
requested to prepare an ordinance
to regulate both the loads and the
width of tires.
Col. Weldy, as Chairman of the
Fire Department Committee, re
ported with mucli satisfaction that
the doors at the engine-house aro
finally completed, and the depart
ment is just waiting for a fire.
Mr Thurness recommended
some improvement ut the north end
of Walnut Street, and the estab
lishment of grades in the Gompf
Addition. This latter matter was
woll discussed, and tho street com
mittee having been already au
thorized to act, were further in
structed along that lino. The
committee havo investigated the
matter, but have been deterred
heretofore by tho diil'erenoo of
opinion among tho residents in the
addition, the immonso difficulty of
establishing a Just and permanent
grade that will give fair drainage,
and tho groat cost of the wrk.
Tim committee on public pro
perty reoorted that tho hayo
been unable to inspect any modols
for tho city work-houso, and will

No further nominations or pro
ceedings were had in the matter
of the appointment of a night
policeman. The clerk was in
