Natnrnl Gas ami the Ex
pected End of tlio World.
Iteeent events furnish ground for
a new and very plausible theory in
regard to the burning of the world,
a theory that attributes the confla
gration to welL known natural
agencies agencies which at pres
ent threaten to get beyond human
control, and by which tho world,
and possibly the universe, may be
destroyed, not only in our own
time, but in course of a fow years
or even months.
It will bo remembered that with
in the past year what is known as
"natural gas" has come into very
general use in parts of Pennsylva
nia. This gas has been obtained by
boring through the surface of the
earth into cavities where tho gas
has been stored by the process of
nature, and whence It escapes into
the open air as soon as an outlet is
Gas-wells have been discovered
in Ohio, New Mexico and Califor
nia, and will doubtless, like oil
wells, bo discovered in ninny local
ities, perhaps in Europe and Asia
as well as in this country. When
wo have a clrclo of gas wells ex
tending fromPcnnsylvanin through
the Ohio Valley to the Missouri
Valley, then to the Pacific, and via
Alaska nnd iJehring's straits to Si
beria, and on through ltussia in
Europe to Germany, and even
England, who knows what may
Even with tho few wells now
running, what would occur if the
lire by some chance should be con
veyed to tho great gas wells in the
bowels of tho earth ? Might not
the sea bo dried up, and the moun
tains hurled from their foundation ?
Indeed, might not the earth be
blown to fragments converted, so
to speak, Into decillions of incen
diary rockets for extending the
conflagration to tho rest of tho uni
verse! Who knows?
Wo cannot expect to export a
very largo amount of butter, as wo
have to competo with Denmark,
Holland, Franco nnd Germany.
These countries have pushed their
sales in Great Britain until they
have nearly monopolized this trade.
They havo established a high
standord for their butter, especially
Denmark, where butter is niado a
science. Holland ranks next and
Franco follows. Tho truth is, our
butter is at tho bottom of tho list,
ns only tho poorest of our products
arc shipped abroad. Tho hard
times in Great Britain will lessen
the demand for butter, and we
depend on a homo market. This
would be all right if It were not for
the miserable fraud of bogus butter
which Is crowded in ahead of tho
real article. It is to bo hoped that
tho dairy interests will not be par
alyzed this year by this wholesale
fraud, and that Congress will pro
tect tho ninny against tho fow tho
half dozen who turn out tho bogus
article from their factories.
It will not pay this year any
moro than last to hold onto butter
for winter prices, as tho winter
dairies and tho creameries will pro
vide nourly enough of fresh niado.
Make butter as gootl as possible,
und solMt when niado unless you
havo jyiceial facilities for keoptng.

In the Ohio Penitentiary
Hpcclnl to tho Enquirer.
CoLUsmuH, 0 July II, 1S80.
The Managers of tho Penitentiary
at their session to-day rescinded
their action of last night whereby
tho ofneo of Auditor was created
and George K. Jenkins, of Greene
county, assigned to the position,
and General Powell continued as
Secretnry, Instead of Jenkins being
given the place. Upon learning tho
action of the Board, Jenkins' friends
raised a terrible howl, and tq-dtiy
called upon Governor Foraker and
threatened dire vengeance if tho
action of the Board was not recon
sidered. Governor Foraker him
self was not pleasetl with the
Board's action, as he is determined
to have a Itepubllcan put In Pow
After examining tho statutes, the
Governor discovered that tho ofllce
of Auditor was abolished by the
Legislature In the act of last winter
reorganizing the institution, and
Immediately saw a way out of the
trouble. He sent for tho Managers
and informed them that they had
no right under the law to create
any ofllces, and they must undo
their action of lust night. Further
more, It was his desire that Jen
kins, who had been elected to posi
tion of Secretary, be given that po
sition. There was nothing for the
Board to do but undo their action
of the day before, and Jenkins
will assume the duties of Secre
tary August 1st.
Notwithstanding the determina
tion of the Governor to havo Gen
eral Powell removed, there Is a
desire on tho part of the Board to
retain him, on account of his cfll
ciency, and the Enquirer is informed
to-night that a way will be found to
do it. If Powell, Sec'y, and Lang,
Clerk, both Democrats, should be
retained, there will bo music in the
'Republican enmp in this county.
For tho position of Clerk there are
fifteen candidates from this county
alone, ami as many moro for Secre
tary from various parts of the
ANOTHint KOUND OF TllOUUI.K.
It. M. Itowntl, Itcsident Manager,
got knocked out in one round by
by tho Board at this session. Ever
since Bob's appointment he has
"assumed tho pressure" all himself
and spends his entire time nt the
prison, never missing a day, giv
ing orders and taking charge of
things generally without consulting
Warden Coflin or in fact paying
any attention to him. Bobby is
not only a Director, but Warden,
Deputy Warden, Steward, Guard,
and in fact every thing about the
institution, The other members of
tho Board havo been kicking vigor
ously for some time, and at tho last
meeting Manager Smcad read
Bownd tho riot net, telling him he
was but ono of five- nnd he was as
suming entirely too much responsi
bility by being at tho prison daily
and virtually taking tho manage
ment of the Institution out of the
hands of tho officers. This friendly
advice was not heeded by olllcious
Bob, nnd he continued his daily
visits to tho prison and gave his
orders to guards, foreman, prisoners
nnd ovory body about tho institu
tion, regardless of tho Warden.
ins pi:rsihti:nt assumption
of duties properly belonging to all
the members of the Board and the
ofllccrs of tho institution, at last
became unbearable, and at the
present meeting of tho Board re
sulted in the adoption of tho fol
lowing by a unanimous vote:
Besolved, That It Is tho sonso of
tho Board that it is unwise and not
to tho best intorest of this institu
tion that any ono member of the
Board of Managers spend any con
siderable timo at tho penitentiary,
except to attond tho meetings of
tho Board and such .committee
work ns may bo roferrod to him, It
being the opinion of tho Board that
tho efllcieney of tho various ofllclals
of tho Ohio Penitentiary will bo
impaired by tho constant presence
of ono or mora Manugors, oxcept
when especially required for con
sultation by tho Warden. And
further, tho Board of Managers will
hold tho ofllclals of this Institution
to a strictt accountability for tho
ofllclent dlschurgo or" their duties,
and desire- that all work bo per
formed through tho regular and
Bownd did not attend thq pres
ent meeting of tho Board, having
gone to Minneapolis on the Board
ofTrndo excursion, and as 'tho au
thorslilp of tlio uboYO rcAolqtlon is
being kept sirlctly secret, no one
having been -able to learn which
member of the Board offered It. In
order tlint Bobby may know what
struck him such a severe blow
below tho belt', tho Enquirer takes
pleasure in announcing that tho
first letter of his name Is Smcad,
and ho hrtlla from Toledo.
There has been much comment
here fo-dny upon tho action of 'the
Bonid, nnd it Is the general opinion
that Bownd will resign when he
learns whnt has been done. This,
your correspondent knows, is the
opinion of tho Board of Managers
and some of tho ofllccrs of tho
prison, and If Bob doesn't resign it
will be a great disappointment to
them. If Bob docs resign on ac
count of this, wo miss our guess.
Bobby knows a good thing ami one
that suits him when he sees it, and
does any body know of Bob Bownd
over letting go of a good thing?
Reorganization of the peniten
tiary took place two months ago.
Now disorganization has set in,
and you may look for fun from now
on, or ns long as Bob Bownd re
mains on the Board.

The statistician of tlio Depart

certainly oat more pork than Eng
land consumes of beef, after dupli
cating the allowance of that prime
article in the British nation; and
wo far exceed the French quota of
all meats In pork product alone,
and surpass by a still larger meas
ure every other continental coun
try. Iowa, Missouri and Kansas
havo larger numbers of swine than
all of Russia witli 00,000,000 people
to feed. Indiana nnd Illinois have
as many as Austria and Hungary,
and with Kentucky and Ohio, more
than all the swine of tho German
empire; and Tennessee, Arkansas,
and Texas moro than tho numbers
of Franco. Tho wonderful elastic
ity of this Industry Is worthy of no
tice. As with corn, there is never
a famine or n glut; a small crop
will sufllco; a largo ono only makes
greater abundance nnd lower pri
ces. In both cases tlio main con
sumption is at home. No good pa
triot can wish to export corn from
tho Missouri to Liverpool at a cost
of 2o cents for a bushel, that may,
perhaps, bo bought for 20 cents
when pork or lard can bo sont from

tenth of Its homo value."

Local Option Election.
PoiiTi.ANi), Ohl, June 20. Yes
terday tho question of local option
was voted on by the citizens of
Washington Terrrltory. In nil the
cities tho measure was defeated by
a vote of about three to two. In
the small towns the measure was
carried by the same proportion in
vote. From tho returns thus far
received it is belived that local
option has a majority in tho Terri
tory. Women did not take as much
interest in tho election as was ex

who voted wero divided as to their
