Miss Edna Randall, after a visit
with Mrs. Will Gaffney, returned
to Columbus today.
Rendered by the Attorney
Attorney General Ellis rendered
on opinion Friday morning on
what salary Governor Harris is to
drew. He holds that the increase
to $10,000 does not go into effect
until after the term for which
Govornor Pattison was elected.
Governor Harris is simply filling
out Governor Pattison's unexpired
term, and therefore his sulary will
ho but $8000.
The attorney general says that
the constitution forbid a raise in
salary far a man during the time
which ho was elected to servo;
that Governor Harris was elected
lieutenant governor with contin
gent rights to act as govornor;
that as acting govornor he has
succeeded to all the rights, privi
leges and duties incumbent on
Governor Pattison, including tho
right to draw the salary drawn by
Governor Pattieon. If Governor
Pattison had lived there would
liuye boon no question whether ho
could have drawn $10,000; it was
settled he could not.
When the acting governor took
his position he was entitled to act
without any reduction in salary,
and the state was entitled to his
services without paying any in
crease in salary.
In the casos of Secretary Samuel
Flickinger, who is the governor's
secretary, and Executive Clerk
Lemert, they will immediately
benefit by the puBBiige of the state
salary law last year, their cases
being different from that of the
govornor in that they hold their
positions at the pleasure of the
executive, and do not, therefore,
have what is known as terms.
Secretary Flickinger will get $5000
instead of $800 and fees, und the
salary of Executive Clerk Lemert
will be $3000 instead of $2100.
There will be an Ice Cream
Social on the lawn of the Fairview

Now Straitsville gallantly took
the pill, Sunday, at the Logan
Ball Park, after a dismally pro
longed and prosy game. There
wore occasional tpurtB of spirit in
the play, but it was mostly u long-drawn-out
discord. The visiting
team had been away from home
for a week, playing, and several
of their players appeared rather
groggy. Scarcely any of thorn
put up the game they usually do,
und Logan's victory was not much
to crow over. Tho homo team
lucked Martin and Rrannigan,
both of whom failed to arrive.
Stultz wus played on second, and
did good work there. Buntz was
put out of the game by injuring
his right thumb in a fall, in the
fifth inning, Jakoy Kleinsohmult
succeeded him, and did somo exe
cution at short. Logan's hitting
was the protuberant feature of the
gamp, Webb, especially, starred
himself, connecting for a pair flf
doubles und ono single out of tho
first throe times up, The score
finally footed up eight to seven, in

Aftor her marriage with John

America, June 4, 1801. They re
sided first at Stoubenville, and
later in various towns of the Hock
ing Valley. For many years their
residence was in Logan. Ten
children, two of whom were girls,
wore born to them. Of these ten,
seven survive their parents. One

of course, unable to attend the

family, of Columbus, were present.
Mrs. Moriarty was a most es

ready rosponso in the sincere le
gret of the community generally
at her decease.

will be between Muiin Hall and

north of tho former. The manner
of seating tho speot.qto.rB is o be
unique. Tho old fashioned circus
seats will not be used. Comfort

Wheat prospects, as indicated
from this report, are tho most flat
tering in a numbor of years past.
Its present condition is reported
at 90 per cont. Compared with an
average, a gain of two points over
estimated prospect July 1. Not
a county in tho state reports pros
pect at less than 90 per cent.,
while thirty-six counties estimato
that the yield will bo a full average
or better. As stated previous re
ports, tho area seeded was far be
low an average, but witli the
promising prospect now reported
the averuge yield per acre should
be so heavy as to bring the total
production well up to an average
crop. Unio'8 heaviest wheat crop
for the past five years was in 1902,
whan on 2,054,583 acres there wa8
produced 30,901,212 bushels. The
estimated area leeded for this
year's harvest is 188,121 acres less
than the area for that orop.
Rainfalls have been heavy and
frequent during the past month,
hence threshing has been retarded
to some extent, but where complet
ed heavy yields per acre are gener
ally reported, while the quality of
the grain is excellent. There is
some complaint of wheat sprouting
in the shock, the damage reported
from this cause being variable,
some correspondents estimating in
as high as 20 per cent., while
others report but slight damage.
In a few weeks sufilcient threshing
will have been finished to estimate,
with approximate correctness, tte
actual product of this year's har
vest. There has been no material dif
ference in the oats prospects from
that indicated last month. The
continued drouth following seeding
seriously affected its growth, and
the prospects iB for about three
fourths of an average crop.
While the report shows no per
centage prospect of corn, corres
