An Interesting Session on
The regular meeting of the yil
logo council was called to order at
seven-thirty Tuesday ovoning by
President of .Council Edgar Angle,
acting in the absoncc of Mayor
Dollison. An Clerk Grove was also
ubsont, Solicitor Pottit was chosen
as Clerk pro tern.
Ex-Mayor J. E. Tritsoh and Ex
Marshal E. P. Armstrong presented
bills to the council for unpaid costs
arising out of the prosecutions for
road-tax last yoar. After some
discussion the bills were allowod.
Mr. Tritsoh was for $88.50 and
Mr. Armstrong for $10.90. The
bill Of Sanitary OlHcer Fields
passed up by the Board of Health,
was referred to the Ways and
Means Committee to bo reported at
the next Meoting. The usual grist
of other bills were reported favor
ably by the committee, and allowed.
Mr. James made a report on the There being no further business,

with Mulberry Street. The coBt
of this improvement is evidently
going to be a surprise. On reeoin
mendation of the Street Committee
it was decided to pave, full width,
the alley running past Gage's and
Oliver's livery stables, from Hunt
er to Second Street. Mr. Shaw
spoke on the subject of drainage
of Glen View Heights. He advo
cated a drainage from North St.
direotly to Goose Creek, and
asserted that ranch of the evil now
resulting-from tbe drainage in the
other direction, south, might be
obviated by the adoption of this
idea. It was the opinion of tbe
council that some of the proposed
alterations and improvements
would have to wait, however, as
the committee has its hands full
Preliminary plans of a general
nature for the proposed municipal
electric light plant were submitted
by Mr. George Champ the engineer
engaged by the select committee in
this matter. Tbe plans provide
for the building of the lighting
plant in connection with the pres
ent water works, across the river.
Blue-prints of ull the plans were
presented. Mr. Champ also gave
estimates of the cost approximat
ing about as follows; building,
$2507 ; 100 II. P. Boiler and at-
taehments, $1800; two engines and!
' ' "
apputenunces, $1)120; two genera-
toa and 50 street lights, etc. $4500 ;
poles' and other material, $8575;
making a total of $111,702, every
thing included Mr. Champ stated
that if these plans were approved
he would have specifications ready
within a few days. Several mem
bom of council exprossed tlio
opinion that the requisite funds
could easily bo secured by private
loan, without the necessity of a
bond issue, and on good terniH as
to Interest and payment. They
were assured by the city solicitor
that such a course would be im
possible, and the only way in
which the money can bo procured
is by a bond issue, which must be
previously voted on by the people
of the town. Mr. Lafe Wrner,of
the Citizens Elootna Light Com
pany, proposed thnt the corpora
tion take over the plant already
built, if a municipal plant is de
sired. Seyeral reasons were ad
duced by counoilmen why this
should not be done, the principal
reason being the age and worn con
dition of tlje machinery and wires,
After a lengthy dialogue on this ,
subjeot, the business was left in
the hands of the select committee,
the plans being approved Solicitor
Pettit was instructed to draft an
ordinance in accordance with the
Mr. Weldy proposed that the
corporation should employ a regu-
lar city engineer, and Mr, James
Reboot, County Surveyor-elect,
was recommended. Mr. Shaw
stated that he, with Mr. Helmut,
had examined the grade of the
Gompf Addition, which was lately
established by ordinance accord-
ting to the survey of J. C. Knney,
and that the grade iib established
should be at onoo modified. The
matter was carried oyer till the
noxt moating, when the ordinance
will be amended.
Mr. W. H. Grady, of the Stute
Bureau of Accounting, who has
beon engaged this week on the
books of the corporation, oll'orod
at this timo only one suggestion.
Section 43 of the Code provides
that definite appropriations for
cucli item of expenso must bo made
by council at the beginning of
each fiscal half-year, in January
and July. This has not been done
here, consequently the legality of
any expenditure incurred might be
brought in question. Ho advised
the immediate passage of an ordi
nance for the present half-year,
and it was decided to havo a spe

Capital and Labor'
"It is hoped that this holiday
will bo the occasion for the promo
tion of good will, especially be
tween those associated as em
ployees and employers." (Gov.
Harris in his Labor Day 1'iocla
mation.) In the opinion of the writer, the
governor ought to have said capi
tal and labor, instead of employees
and employer. It is at presont
the unlimited and combined wealth
that wields the iron rod of despot
ism in this country equal in its
sad consequences of the autocratic
rule of Russia. It is the fiuanoial
monaroh that sends forth his man
damus what shall bo tlio future
destiny of our nation, and thus tlio
unlimited and unbridled force of
capital disturbs at present tlio
equilibrium of our social and poli
tical states in society and nations,
Capital and labor are, or at least
ought to be unsepcrnble. One can
not llyo or prosper without the co
operation of the other. Combined
in harmony of notion they form
the great "Aorta" of our national
life, through whioh Hows tholifo
blood of commorco and industry.
Labor Is the tributary artery, and
when deprived of its functions,
capital becomes, dormont, idle,
even dead whonover this life giv
lug intluonoe and co-operation is
obstructed. Yet may we vonturo
to say, that thero maybe extremes
in both capital and labor, ouo may
drift into autocracy, while the
other may show signs of socialistic
tendencies, The Americun laborer
fpols a certain freedom and liberty
in his bosom, not employed by the
laboring clasH of any other country
hence the recent disagreements be
tween capital and labor in our
cities and towns, and then, when
capital shut the doors of factories
und shut off the support of labor,
or when labor tried to dictate and
made known its demands by strikes
and in places by violence, stopping
the wheels of commerce; thou this
God given liberty to man becomes
liceuse, an excess of liberty and
an unlawful action. Labor has a
right to form itself into a lawful
constituted union for solf protec
tion, as well as capital has a right
to employ its financial resource in
its most remunerative channels,
but whenever capital dictates and
exercises supremacy and thereby
ignores the dignity of labor, then
then employee becomes a toot on
tile grasp of capital, and is no
longer eniploj'ed only "used," it
term disgraceful and unbearable to
the free labor in this country
Great objection is frequently
manifested against socalled foreign
labor; yet, when the foreigner al
though unable to understand our
National language, is by law ad
mitted upon our shores, and seeks,
and finds employment, our funda
mental laws grant him protection
to life and property, while the
foreigner owes to the land of his
adoption, a local obedience to law
and order; to disturb him in his
lawful avocation is luwlessnes,
Tbe golden rule, and the long
cherished dicam of a common
brotherhood of, man, ami the uni
versal fatherhood of God, is nt
yet realized, may the day speedily
come, when God's will is done on
on earth as it is done in heaven, is
the fervent prayer of:
J. L, Y

Prayer Nuisanco Stoppe .1.
Postal authorities have decided
to put a stop to the endless chain
prayer system which has beon an
noying many church goers in this
yicinity and elsewhere on account
of letters recoivod from unknown
Postolllce Inspector G. V. Craig
head after an investigation, lias
decided that the practice is a clear
violation of the postal laws.
Further, ho says that if the
names of I lie proinoterH of this
kind of woiship can be secured
they will be charged with misuse
of the mails. Thus people expect
a relief from the practice.
This wan thu prayer sent out:
"O Lord, Jesus Christ, we implore
Thee, mankind, keep us from sin
by Thy precious blood, and take
us to bo with Thee eternally,
Besides this letter, many people
received a letter, threatening the
receiver willi some misfortune if
lie did not tend a copy of tlio
prayer to nine other persons. It
was said that the portion obeying
tlio order would be delivered from
At the end of the letter were

The surveying corps of the Scioto
Vullep Traction company is now
established near Logan and is
working on the proposed extension
of the line to Athens. The initial
survey to Logan was made by way
of Bremon, dowu Rush creek. This
seems a much better route than
down the valley, as practically all
of thnt right of way is occupied
by the old Hocking canal and the
Hocking Valley railway.
Tho Bremen line lias one small
hill and the right of way can be
cheaply obtained. The board of
directors of the company will hold
a meeting within a short time to
consider several routes and de
cide whether or not the extension
will be built at once. It is certain
to come later in any event. Ohio

learned that plans for extensive
improvements on the through line
from OolunibiiB to Charleston, W.
Va,, and In the passenger service
when tbe transfer of the Kunawha

ley railway is made, have been
adopted, The plans for the trans

to the amount of $18,000,000 and
a large amount of money received
from the bonds is to be used In the
improvements. When the transfer

Among the improvements to be
made will be the replacing und
strengthening of the steel bridge
oyer the Ohio river and the build
ing of a 1000-foot tunnel at Langs

route materially. At a number of
places curves are to be straightened
and the line shortened.

Second Warning- to Potato
The late blight or rot fungus of
potntoes, Piiytoplitlioru, has ap
peared about Wooster, Ohio, lol
lowing the rainy weather. This
same iungus appeared at Wooster
August 15, 1004, and July 25, 1005
the fungus has just been collected
by the Botanist of the Ohio Ex
periment Station, in abundance, in
fields near tho Station, August 0,

be followed by rot.
The late blight and rot may be
prevented by thorough spraying
with Bordeaux mixture, made of
4 lbs. blue vitriol and 4 to 5 lbs. of
lime in 50 gallons of water, if
treatment is prompt. Such spray
ing should be repented at 7 to 8 day
intervals till crop is mature, Some
growers gained one third to one
half increase of crop by spraying
from this time forward, in 1005.
Such treatment is now again rec
