The Herald, of McConnelsyille, Sen
ator Abbott's home, asserts his inno
cences of the offenuo for which ho was
indicted by the Franklin County grand
jury and says that nothing but a trial
and conviction, followed by Abbott's
confession, would convince It of his
Tun petition which has been circu
lated requesting Mr. JIcQill to intro
duce a bill reducing tho salaries of
county officials has been run down and
is discovered to havo emantcd from a
nurelv Democratic source at Pattins
Mills, in Palmer township. Letters
and copies of tho petition were sent to
all the township clerhs in the county.
Mr. McGill wilt, of course, glvo his best
attention to the matter nit.
At the November election there wore
cast in this city 21S9 votes. On Mon
day last thero were 1140 votes cast at
the special elcc'.ion.
Against new power house for the
electric UghUplant there were found to
"be 516 "votes, but 090 voters of the city
did not go to the polls, and -their will
in the matter was not shown. It re
quired 707 votes to mike the two
thirds majority. The question is, how
would these 000 stay-at-home voters
have voted. We'll dollors to dough
nuts that they would have voted "yes''
and carried tho proposition. They
'were probably the very fellows who
had figured it out that the city could
furnish them with incandescent lights
cheaper than a private company could
do it, but were too modest to go and
demand that the city do it. On the
other hand it may be that these 030
stay-at-homes might have swamped the
street pavJnir proposition.
After all it was apretty exhibition of
the popular will and of the consoryn
tisru of Marietta's citizens.
Its the only proper way to bond the
city and should only be resorted to
when necessity of an an urgent kind
requires such a necessity as two
thirds of 'Voters would readily ack
nowledge. We are, however, getting
into the notion that there is lots of
merit in the new law some of the'
states arcenacting pooridiag.a penalty
for voters who will not vote.

The denunciation of the South Amer
icans on the part of the English press
a a mongrel and degenerate race is, to
say the least, extremely unbecoming.
In no part of the Western world is the
white iac3 yielding so completely to
admixture with the negro race an in
Jamaica and other of the Ilpitish West
India islands; while tho relative sprink
ling dt white population in British
Guiana becomes less and less, until it
may now bo said without fear of con
tradiction that there is absolutely no
visible future for any considerable
white population in the Guianas.
Dutch 'fiui.ma recognizes that fact,
while French Guiana has hunk too low
vjn for its old uses as a. penal colony.
British fiuiana has long admitted these
facts in its policy, but the Uritisii Gov
ernment will not allow tho truth to be
told in words. The situation is wholly
different in Venezuela. That republic
lias a totr.1 population of two jaillionB
and a half. The negro clement is a
very wnall one, and the i.une tiling ie
true of the Indian tribes. The great
bulk of tho population is of --rood Snan-

United States that a limited admixture
of American Indian blood does not
vitiate the European stock. In mat
ters of education, of art, music and
literature, of railways and telcgruphs,
and of general material and soda)

IN THE OIL FIELDS.
Athens. Ohio, February 4. A solid
stream of oil shot out aud abovo tho
derrick when the drill entered tho sand
in tho Strauss llMja well near hero yct
terday. The well flowed for several
minutes but on account of the absence
of gas tho well will have to bo pumped,
and it is thought by experienced oil
men that it will bo good for over forty
barrels a day.

Tho"war on Indian creek over tho Jack

will be litigated In tho courts. Both

making 250 barrels a day. This well

F. H. and. M. V. Fcshers, of 'Wick,
yesterday sold one-half of" their royalty
in 200 acres "of land at that place for
tho snug sura of 55,200 cash. Clint
Moore, L. M. Gorham and the Henry

G. 13. Johnson yesterday sold tho
Cain and Tuel leases over tho river to
A. C. Bradley, of Butler, Pa., who will
raovo hero and take charge of tho wells
at onee. The consideration is private.
Tho Oxford Oil Company's well on
tho A. A. Haught farm, out on Middle
Island, was drilled to the top of the
break yesterday evening and to-day
was reported to be a gasser second in
size only to the Big Moses. The tools
were blown out of tho hole and on ac
count of tho heavy pressure it is nn-
nossiblc to drill the well. The fact
that tliis well came in such a heavy
gatser is taken by its owners as an in
dication that there is a pool of oil in
the immediate vicinity and other wells
will be drilled at once.
Tho Kyle well on Friday last was
stirred up with the bit, and today is
flowing oil at tho rate of 0 barrels an

Chicaoo, Fob. 5. An entire family,
consisting of seven persons, was found
dead Wednesday morning, the result
of the murderous work- and suicide
Tuesday night of Richard Kloettko, a

The dead are; Richard Kloettko,

Tho discovery was made at 7:30
o'clock Wednesday morning by a
neighbor who called at tho Kloettko
residence to get some work done. Tho
victims wete all killed by shots from a
revolver, which was found by kloott
Kloettko had been out of work
since Christmas. A pathetic feature
of tno tiagody is that two neighbors
called tit tno Kloc-ttkn cottage Wed

Head, and (loath must navo been in

it is surmi-ed that tno mutdcior had
rendered his victims unconscious as
they slont, before firing tho fatal
shots. Vho appearance of Mrs,
Kloottke alono of all tho victims, pre
rented any indication of a struggle.
