Thus far there is no millionaire
in Mr. Cleveland's Cabinet, and he
will probably succeed in finishing
it without putting in any of those

money than they have earned en

We feel sure that every ono pos

sorry for the financial downful of
Gov. McKinley, resulting from
his becoming surety for Robert L.
Walker of Youngstown. At last
reports tho amount of his surety
ship is more than one-hundred
thousand dollars, which is a sum
greater than the assets of both
Walker and tho Governor.
Tho failure of the Reading Rail
road and Coal Co. on last Monday,
was in tho nature of a hurprise, as
It was supposed that this combina
tion was well nigh invulnerable.
In attempting to increase its
strength the Reading people un
dertook to draw several of the
Now England roads into tho com
bine. This action antagonized the
Vanderbilts, and a receiver for the
Reading is the result.
This giant was ono of tho worst
monopolies of tho Coal trade of
Pennsylvania, and tho extortion
practiced upon the people of Phila
delphia, New, "York and New
Jersey was without precedent, and
tho failure may be a blessing to
the patrons of the combine.

Tho Cliiiiupioii Of Tho Pansy.

It would hardly bo appropriate
to speak of Representative Butler
of Iowa as "a daisy," but wero he
to bo alluded to as "only a pansy
blossom" ho would not bo likely to
take offense. Mr. Butler, who will
close his only term in congress
next week, will be recorded in tho
congressional annals for the ad
miration of all future ages as tho
champion of tho pansy flower and
the proposer of various measures
designed to associate it with Amer
ican greatness. Last December
ho introduced a coiiplo of bills tho
object of which was to make the
pansy tho national flag. If tho
Butler project were to bo adopted
tbo stars would bo blotted out from
"old glory" and their places taken
by pansy blossoms, grouped in the
form of a pansy. Tho bills were
sent to u committee withoiu Ilorl
cultural tastes and nothing inoro
lias been heard of them.
Nothing daunted by this lack of
spmpathy Mr. Butler yoMcrdny
indroduced another couple of bills
for the glorification of his favorite
fiower. One provided for a change
of al tiro for the goddess of liberty.
giving her a new pair of lace-up
shoes, long stockings, a short skirt
reaching not quite to tho knee, a
tight-fitting bodho with sleeves to
tho elbow, and a pansy cap. Tho
other bill directed a change of the
seal so that above the eagle's head
should bo "a glory breaking
through a cloud pansy." Thee
bills also wont to a committee that
doesn't know a pansy cap. As Mr.
Butler does not return to the next
congress the "faco flower" will lose

Improve the llondn.
The subject of wagon mads Im
provement Is just now occupying
some of the best minds of the coun
try, and it Is safe to predict that
die time for u general move in the
direction of better roads is not far
In the future.
Hocking County spends about
eighteen, or twenty thousand dol
lars on the public roads annually,
and yet the roads aro no better
now than they were ten years ago,
showing to all thoughtful people
that tho present mode of proceed
uro can nover give us good high
ways. Wo have a plan, a now departure
for Improving our roads, which we
believe will bo effective and prac
tical. Tho first step In our plan Is to
have an enabling act, permitting
the Issuo of County bonds not to
exceed tho sum of $250,000, exten
ding tho payment over a period of
twenty-five years, and bearing flvo
per cent, interest, payable semian
nually. This will provldo a fund
for tho business.
Tho next stop in our plan is to
have a review and careful survey
and measurement of each road to
bo Improved, tho location of tho
road to bo changed wherever ne
cessary to hotter tho road-bed
either as to grado or otherwise, and
also to determine tho best and
most feasible plan for tho propor
drainage and Improvement of tbo
road at all points, and to givo to
the commissioners a careful esti
mate of tho cost of such changes
Lastly let specifications of tho
work bo prepared, and tho work
sold to tho lowest responsible bid
dor nnd bo required to complete
tho work according to tho specifica
tions, and to tho satisfaction of tho
Commissioners or superintendent.
This is tho plnn in brief, tho do
tails can bo worked out at any
time, but that some such plan is a
necessity, wo think is proven by
our exporienco of tho last decade.
The ralo of luxation need not be
materially increnred to accomplish
tho end, by the proposed plan.
It would require about a four
aud a half mill rate to meet the in
terest and provide a sinking fund
for tho bonds; but we can chop the
present two mill levy for roads,
and one mill of tho Bridge levy;
making three mills, and as will bo
seen the net increase in taxation
will not exceed ono and ono half
mills, or $1.00 on tho $1,000 of valu
ation. The benefits resulting, to the
fanner, from good roads havo been
o often and so well delineated
that wo need not repeat them, but
of the benefit to and increase in
the value of farm lands not much
has been said.
There are in Hocking County a
few more than 200,000 acre!, the
value of which would be increased
fully one dollar per acre, if the
roads contiguous to them were such
that you could reach market,
church, school, or county town
easily, rapidly and comfortably at
Let our people consider whether
the improvement of tho roads
might not be a good investment,
oven from n financial point of view.
