Governor Foraker has issued a procla
mation setting apart Friday, April "Otli,
as Arbor Da v.

Tliu Senatorial in vestigatingcommittec
has finished its laliois in Cincinnati. It
remained just long enough to observe
tlio" conduct of tho citirens of Fourth
Ward, A., on election day and uas then
ready to close up its testimony. Their

Clladstono still retains tho honored as
cendancy in English politics. His
speech on the Irish question in the
House of Commons last week displayed
a more masterly planning and a finer
oratory than any of his former efforts.
Thu new policy of the administration is
to give Ireland home rule, which seems
to settle the long-standing question sat
isfactorily to all.
List week Governor Foraker sent a
special message to tho Legislature, the
full text of which will be found in an
other column under the head of "Ohio's
Finances." Tho document exhibits its
author ns possessing a through knowl
edge of all the details of state government
and any one who doubts his ability is re
ferred to the article. His remarks on
the subject of finance and taxation ore
apprdpriate and explicit, and bills have
already been introduced embodying the
pith of his suggestion.
Tho strong vote for members of
Council shows that our citizens endorse
the policy of the council in dealing with
the Gas Company and the bull-headed
opposition of tho Company's friends.
Hillsboro never had a better Council,
the Gazelle to the contrary notwithstand
ing. The members have level heads
and no axes to grind and, like the
Major and the Clerk, wero reinstated
for their excellent official conduct, while
the Treasurer and the rest of the ticket
r.in on its unquestioned superior merit.
There has been a remarkable mortality
in Fourth Ward, A., Cincinnati, since
last fall's election. Nearly half the pop
ulation is dead. Xearly tho entire
boodle element has departed this life
and if any still remain they aro hereby
respectfully requested to join tho silent
majority. The total vote polled in thtt
piecinct last fall was 990, and the total
at the recent election was 528. The Re
publican vote increased 155 and the
Democratic vote decreased 034; so the
death angel seems to have a partiality
The attack on II. S. Doggett made by
the Gazelle of last week is unwarranted,
ungentlemanly and unjust, and Mr.
Doggett's bitterest enemy will not be
pleased with it. It has been shown Unit
a majority of the voters in the school
district are opposed to the piesent Super
intendent, but that fact furnishes no
causo for a half column of disgusting
doggerel, nor a column of editorial, full
of falsehoods and insults to the School
Board. A discrete editor would not
have allowed such nonsensical meanness
to find vent through his columns, and
Dittey has hurt himself much more than
the man he intended to strike. Doggett
lias been defeated with about one-third
of the emphasis which will order Dittey
down and out in the approaching con
test for Probate Judge. The charge
that the schools are a decade behind
those of surrounding towns is utterly
false, and does injustice to a corps of
teachers that has received no public re
buke, and had but little interest in the
recent turmoil. The schools are not
out of order and have not been.
The labor troubles have grown more
complicated during the past week. It
is to be said to the credit of the Knights
of Labor that the instigators of the re
cent riots did not belong to their order,
and that leading Knights earnestly en
deavored to allay tho violont disposition
of the mob. A leader in lawlessness, of
whatever nature, is always followed by
an army of would-be criminals, and a
few loud-mouthed malcontents are re
sponsible for the disasters which East St.
Louis lias lately witnessed. Yet, in the
outset, tho Knights of Labor were wrong,
and although, not directly criminated by
the recent calmity, the strike led indi
rectly to tho present bloodshed ar.d in
cendiarism. The organization certainly
teaches a false theory of the relations be
tween laborand capital. If an employer
dismisses a laborer and they square ac
counts, neither has any claim upon the
other. The laborer has no right to insist
that he be re-employed, much less to do
stroy the employer's property because
they can not agree. And no matter if
two million employes join the first,
tho rule remains the same. Therefore
the strikers of the Southwestern Railway
System are wrong in asserting what they
call their "rights." The rights of a
Knight are no more exalted than those
of the humblest laborer in the land, and
the order confers no new authority.
One division of the public opinion blames
Jay Gould forref using to restore tho strik
ers in a body to their former positions.
A question would naturally arise in that
capitalist's mind as to whether he owed
the most to the men who came to him
or to those who deserted him in the time
of need, and in the light of reason the
question is not hard to decide. Jay
Gould does not owe it to the public to
reinstate the striking workmen. But be
has manned his road and is ready to run
it, and the government owes it to him
that Us property shall not be molested
nor his business obstructed by a riotous
Howell Edmunds Jackson has been
appointed to fill tho position of U. S.
Circuit Judge, of the Sixth Judicial Dis
trict lately vacated by the death of Judge
The silver question is temporarily off
docket in Congress, and the supporters
of frco coinage and of a suspension of
the coinage have alike failed. Like the
tariff, tho monetary interest is a matter
suicidal for tho Democracy to handle
and decidedly dangerous to let alone.
In repealing the ordinanco which re
quires two da a' work on tho streets the
council did a sensible thing. The ordi
nance and the law authorizing it are
just enough in themselves, but their
working i? Imperfect. Some obey the
summons, but many do not, and thus in
justice is wrought. Tho act lacks ade
qunto means to enforce it, and a law,
without siilficicnt power behind it to
make it cllcctual, is worse than no law
We are in receipt of n poem on ex
actly the samo style as that pnblished in
last week's Gazelle. It is just as scath
ing, too. Every stanza is full of advice
delivered in satirical jingle and "Gazette
Co." is the burden of the song. How
ever, we do not intend to make the
New s-Herald an instrument for aveng
ing the pettv spite of one man against
another. Dittey's drivel is something
that any man of any degree of principle
would be heartily nsnatneu oi.
Through tho courtesy of Librarian C.
N. Allen, we received last week, a copy
of the "Annual Report of tho Board of
Manager's of the Ohio Tenitentiary."
It is an interesting work. On examina
tion we find that the total receipts for
tho fiscal year are S180.020.08 and the
total expenditures $254,110.14. If we
do as wo are requested to and subtract
from the expenses thenmountof "prison
labor on permanent structures," $24,
251.50, we have still an excess of S43
243.90, a very snug little sum far the
Stato to pay out in a year for the feed of
a growing elephant. Tho Board states
that the excess of tho expenditures
over the receipts "lias occurred by reason
of unexpected and unusual circum
stances and conditions." Indeed they
must have been very novel S43.000
worth of peculiarities 1 It is well known
that the 1'enitentiary was formerly a
navint? institution, and until radical re
form set in it continued to be so. What
wo now want is some more reform, but
in nnnther direction. Under the uuise
of improving the concern, a Democratic
administration nas improved it so mucn
as to cet it in a ternblo condition -a
nprfeet sink-hole for tho public money
The people of the State aro charitable
hut thev don't want to "blow in" S43,
000 on criminals, admitting, even, that
the expenditure was warranted.

EniTons News-Herald: Old Winter has
been lingering nround rather familiarly
lately; and sat down in tho Inpot spring on
election day, much to the disgust of the far
mer; but naturals again smiling; the birds
sing, whoat and grass are greening up. Oc
casionally we see a tree or book peddler.
Schools lmve closed fur the winter, loafers
are plenty, and now Is n good time for the
nnll keg polisher nt the corner grocery to
lean over tlio fence unci tell tho old grnnger
how to do It; he knows more about horses,
cattle, hogs, beans, onions, etc., than ten
men that can render reason; and yott ought
to hear thorn on strikes; the fellow that Is
best posted on strikes generally has his sit
tlngnpparatus half soled. We find there Is an
over-production of school teachers In this
township Just thirty, and seven schools;
the result Is our school elections are lively;
what we will do with them I don't know,
they don't like to work, and 'tis hard on the
old dad to keep them; better go West boys,
and grow up with the country. We see that
Governor Foraker says funds are getting low
In the State treasury and recommends
whisky taxation; that Is right, tax the truck,
and Increase assessment of bonds, etc. He
complains that lands are not assessed
equally. Better let the farmers alone. They
pay more tax now than any other class. The
average farmer In these parts Is paying tax
on what ho owes thusly; he buys a farm and
pa j s one or two-thirds cash, the balance
runs on mortgage, or he has poor crops, or Is
unfortunate and bets behindhand and Is
foiced to borrow money on mortgage. He Is
taxed on his land and pnjs Interest on what
he owes, and the Innd not his In reality.
Why can't some Solon have a low enacted
exempting the farmer's or any other man's
property that Is mortgaged to the amount of
mortgage, 'tis Just and right; think of tbeso
things, Brothers Pugsley and Barrett.
Now then, we want to say the Ct&M.R.
R. Is booming, and 'tis a big II. Notwith
standing the bad weather and continual
croaking of doubters, there has been an Im
mense amount of work done. The trestllng
is nearly all new, and Jhoroughly repaired.
New ties have been distributed, and are
being rapidly put In place, ditches thorough
ly cleaned out. Iron bought lortheextenllon
toltlplev, grading contracted from George
towu to Illplcy. Delivery of Iron will com
mence ns soon ns the track becomes salld
and the new lie' are In place. Work Is paid
for right nloug in caihl Colonel Buell Is a
hustler, and Jim Is his right bower; and the
genial Ad Kennedy will keep the books

Joseph Richards, a small, sickly looking boy,
son of Mr. A. O. Richards, our cemetery sex
ton, met with a very serious misfortune a few
days since, by being rather suddenly afflicted
with something like paralysis of the lower
limbs. In a short time after tho first attack
his legs became dead and almost useless, and
remain so np to this time. Otherwise he is in
good health and enjoys a good appetite, and
as ths proper feeling in his limbs, but has no
power to move them about nor to atand up.
Miss Vina Evans, whose serious Illness has
been mentioned in this paper, died on last
rnaay nignt, apm ia, as ner nome in iioss
county a few miles southeast of this place, in
the 41st year of her age. Her death was the
result of a very severe attack of Inflammation
of the stomach. Her sickness was of but a
few weeks duration, bnt her aufferins was
most painful. The funeral services took place
on Sunday at 11 o'clook, from the M. E,
Church, uev. o. W. Kelley, the pastor, as
sisted by Rev. Brown, of Booth Silem, con

Election day has once more come and gone.
It came in rough and continued cold and un
pleasant all through the day, but despite the
unpleasant weather and sloppy condition of
the streets a large vote was polled; everything
passed off quiet and orderly, no drunkenness
nor quarreling of any consequence was in
dulged in during the day. In the evening
after the polls were closed considerable corn
iuioe was swallowed and some of the boys got
it way np their nose and became quite noisy.
But taking all In all the election was quiet and
peaceable, a little above the average election in
that respect. 683 votes were polled in the cor
poration, and 642 In the township.
Little Isaac Ware, a child about fonr and a
halt years old, son of Mr. Frank Ware, whose
serious Illness from erysipelas In the right foot
was mentioned In this paper a week or two
since, has grown dangerously worse ever sinoe,
until the disease has taken the form of erysip
elas gangrene. The foot became dead and
blackened up to the ankle joint. To save the
foot was a thing impossible, and to leave it on
would beyond doubt result in the death of the
boy, as the foot appeared as though it was
about to drop from the leg. Being perfectly
dead amputation seemed the last resource to
save the little sufferer's life. On last Batnrday
the doctors of the town held a consultation
and all agreed tbat amputation was the one
chance to save his life. On las', Monday the
amputation was very neatly ana successfully
performed by Dr. Frank L. Wibxn. v assisted by
other doctors of this place. The foot waa
taken off a few inches above the ankle joint
and the little fellow left with bat one foot and
