The County Infirmary.

Infirmiry Building to 0. W.

The bid made by McCoy
aad Holland are not bids at all,
being over $10,000, the estima

that it ill be seen that the
contract was awarded to the
highest bidder. We have al
readv called the attention of
tjie publio to some of the ir
regularities and defects in the
plans, etc., and will have much
more to say on the subject
hereafter. The Commission
efs hare not complied
with the law in one single
particular in all their proceed
First, the law requires them
to employ an architect to pre
pare plans. We quote Ohio
Laws, Vol. 68, Pge 21 J:
Section. 7. That .in al
oases where It shall become
necessary for the commision
ers of any county to erect, or
cause to be erected, any court
house, building for county of
fices, jail or infirmary, or when
; t shall be necessary to make
any addition to or alteration of
any such building, such com
missionenr, before entering in
to any contract for the ereo
tion, alteration of, or addition
to such building, or for the
supply of materials therefor,
shall make, or procure some
AAMnatent OPtVi i f Aif i r malrA A
full, complete and accurate
plan or plans of such court
house, jail or infirmary, or of
any addition to or alteration
thereof in all its parts, show
ing all the necessary details of
the work, together with work
ing plans suitable for the use
of the mechanics or other
builders during the construct
ing thereof, so drawn-aud rep
resented as to be plain and
easily understood, and also ac
curate bills showing the exact
amount of all the different
kinds of materials to be used
in the erection thereof, addi
tion thereto, or in the altera
tion and improvement therof,
to accompany said plan or
plans, and also full and com
plete specifications of the
work to be done, showing the
manner and style in which the
.limit will be reanired to be
dope, and giving such direction
for the same as will enable any
competent builder to carry
them out, afford to bidders all
needful information to enable
them to understand what will
be required in the construction,
addition to, alteration or im
provement of any court house,
jail or infirmary, arid to make,
or cause to be made a fall, ac
curate and complete estimate
of each ' item of expense, and
the entire aggregate cost of
each' court house, jail or in
firmary, or, of any addition to,
alteration or improvement
thereof, , when completed.
Mr. Oilman, js not an archi
tec i if a millwright had been
wanted, the law would have so
atated, and he would have filled
the bill. 1 His "architecture" has
already cost the county from
$6,000 to $8,000 in one job
the Eatcliffe bridge across Rao
coon, which would have fallen of
its own weight before the roof
wai on, if the .contractor hadn't
propped it up lamjorarily. The
drawings do not showiall.or any
of the "necessary details qf the
wort, together with . working
'plans suitable for the use of the
'. Second, the "plans" taing
thus procured, the contract was
awarded to tho highes; bidder.
Here It may be. well to state that
it is- the general public "opinion
here, in McArthur, where alf the
partial are known, that there was
but the one genuine bid: in,-and
that the ethers were, all mere

Third, the law provides that
notice to contractors shall oe
published ia two papers iix con
tecutive week. Ohio Laws,
Vol. 66, Page 55. . It was pub-
ished just one-half that time,
and we are prepared to show
that responsible parties contem
plated examining the plans, with
a view to bidding, aad were pre
vented by this snap judgment of
We have thus presented to the
publio important particulars
wherein the Commissioners have
failed to comply with the law
We showed last week that almost
any kind of an "L"-shaped
house would fill the plans as filed
in the Auditor's office, and that
they were conveniently made 'to-
lead pencil tor any alteration de
sired. It is within the power of
anv citisen to stop the whole
proceedings by law,'and at the
same time do the county "a ser
vice, we ao not Know msi me
.v il.i it.
Commissioners will still persist
in carrying their proceedings
further after this expose ; but if
they do, let no tax payer com
plain hereafter when the taxes
begin to grind ; for it is within
his power now to compel them to
proceed legally, and a compliance
with the law secures economy.
The Cbillicothe Advertiser, af
ter giving the details of our item
about the reported assassination
of the President, as telegraphed
and as also reported by Josephs
a burglar, confined in the county
jail, and who has been trying to
play off crszy, says :
"A commission of lunacy
might find it difficult to deter
mine, as between the editor and
the demented burglar, which was
the craziest of the two."
Perhaps ; as Josephs has thus
far failed to convince any person
that he is crazy. But if "the
little boy on the fountain" should
compete, the difficulty of the
commission would vanish.
The toothless old bachelor who
gums up the hash for the Logan
Sentinel in reply to a little item
of ours two weeks ago says he
feels a greater admiration for the
State Journal than ever we ex
pressed ; but that our admiration
is principally for the news and
editorials, while the Sentinel de
vours the advertisements. Just
A Washington correspond
ent speaks of a fashionable
young lady as "wearing her
laces down to her knees."
Lord! Lord! we never knew
before .that a young lady had
any knees. What next?
The Scioto (Jazette says : Mrs
O'Leary died at McArthur last
week. She was no relation to
the lady who owned the cow that
kicked Chicago over and burned
the lamp up.

-'0. W.- Gilman'.v thVi"ar3bl
tect'' who drew the planb of the
new Infirmary,' has been award
ed the contract of building it.
t is the duty of an architect to
stand between the contractor
and the owner and see that the
contractor dues not defraud the
owner,but furnishes good mate
rial, and performs his work in a
workmanlike maimer, and de
cide any misunderstanding or
dispute which may arise be
tween them, and linaily to ac
cept or reject the job when
completed. So it will be seen
that our County Commission
ers have secured the services
of O. W. Oilman, architect, to
watch 0. W. Gilman, contract
or, and see that 0. W. Oilman,
contractor, furnishes good ma
terial and does his work in a
workmanlike manner. In case
any dispute should herealter
arise between O. W. Gilman,
contractor, and tho Commis
sioners. ' about the details of
the Infirmary building for
which deficient plans present
ample opportnniiy 0. W. Gil
roan, architect, will decide the
matter always carefully look
ing alter the interests of the
people as represented by the
Commissioners, ot course. And
finally O. W. Oilman, architect,
will examine the work of O.
W. Gilman, contraclor, and de
cide whether or not O.-W. Gil
man, contraclor, has built the
Infirmary according to the
plans and specifications of 0.
W. GiLnan, architect.
All mighty nice for Gilman
and reminds us of sonio Quar
termasters in war times who
bought supplies in their private
character and t old to them
selves in their official capacity.
They were always careful ol
the interests of the govern
ment, but republics are prov
erbially ungrateful, and used to
discharge them in disgrace
when they could find them out.
Then, civil engineers on new
railroads have been known to
become contractors, usingsome
third party as a go-between,
and in such cases stockholders
have been so thoughtless as to
complain that the engineer
would overmeasure the work
and otherwise favor the con
tractor, but then there is no
danger of any trouble in this
case, for have not O. W. Gil
man, architect, and 0. W. Gil
man, contractor, and the Com
missioners been building
bridges over all the dry-runs in
the county, and have they not
worked together in the sweet
Donn Pi att advances the the
ory that Oakes Ames checks
were forged and his testimony
perjured. After alluding to
the clumsy manner in which
Ames testified while the com
miltee satin secret session, the
Capital says that after the
doors of the committee room
was thrown open, and Ames'
testimony given to the world,
threats were thrown out from
time to time that if he (Ames)
were not sustained he would
turn State's evidence. "An
anonymous letter to this effect,"
says the Capital, "threw Gen
eral Garfield into a paroxysm
of jage, that led to a corres.
pondenoe and a denial on the
part of Ames." Every gentle
man in any way connected
implicated in this transaction
received a like threat or intim
idation, but the threats were
not responded to, and on
Wednesday Ames again took
the stand, and gave the only
evidence (hat injured the ac
cused Congressmen. His cor
roborative evidence the "little
memorandum hock"and checks
Donn believes were manulac
tured for the occasicn. The
whole thing in his opinion is an
attempt on the part of Ames,
Alley and Borne .others to rum
hitherto spotless characters,
and save what little they have
ot their own.

Every merchant, manufacturer
or bwinets man who haa lecome
prominently rich, has made his
fortune by judicious advertising.
No exception to this rule can be
cited! Mewarl. the Prince of
Merchants, when a poor man, was
driven to advertising, as a last
resort, to get his slock turned into
money to as to meet a note. Ar
auinq from this that if it was

Some merchants sttv it is not worth
while to advertise; for no person reads
advertisements; yet every merchant in
this county will read this advertise
ment, and if he is wise he will prom
by its suggestion, if he has anything to
offer worth advertising.. How much
mere then will those read them who
are not so largely supplied with read'
ing matter, aro at loisure in the even

their local news, the most important
item of which is where they can find
just what they want when they come to
town to make their purchases. J I join
stock is so old, rusty, dusty and out
style that it is worthless, or if it it run
down so that you have nothing left that
people would wint, it is not worth
while for you to advertise. Hut if it is
new, fresh and sparkling, up to the
times, and such as the people want,
don't hido them, but-publish to the
world that you have them, and want
to sell them at a fair price.
An advertisement published for a sin
gle day does duty beyond that day,
and its effect continues in a greater
ratio than most men imagine. In the
end it will make a man's name a per
manent matter, a piece of real proper
ty built up in tli9 minds of men until
it becomes more valuable than any
corner lot in his locality.
Ir you lose a watch, a dog or a child,
or if you desire people not to trust
your wife, you rush to your local pa

the advertisement. Hut you will plod
along in business year after year, with
out calculating how mush you ure los

If those persons who profess to be
lieve that newspaper advertisements
are not read by tho publio wish to
convinced. of their error, just lot them
give publicity to somo matter they
would not care to divulge to the world,
even in the roost obscure corner of
country paper, and see what notoriety
they would soon attain. Advertiser'
Advertising is apt to give us that
gentle jog of conscience which tells

Perhaps it would be a good plxn for
Madame to nark this passage and

Why do people read advertisements?
To see who is enterprising and to learn
what i going on. - To sco if there
anything new, or anything that they
want. To see if the season's styles
have come in, and to find out who has
them. To know if any one is selling
off at reduced rates, or to watch the

Thb power of print is well known,
but not well understood. A printed
sentence has a wonderful advantage
over one that is written or spoken.
This is one of the many reasons which
gives an importance to advertising. But
advertisers, even those of experience,
do not comprehend as well as they
might the capacity to influence, to per
suade, to convince, which lies in print

graces of elocution and the force

to nothingness if not caught in their

thing in the silent language, the quiet
