Mr. Hathaway is very indignant
about an' imaginary wrong done to the
Council; the remarks about committees
rushing to Columbus applied to the
whole state, and everybody knows that
for the last ten years the larger part of
the legislation done at Columbus was
local bills, and this practice the Su
preme Court in accordance with Sec
tion 1, Article 13; Section 0, Article 13,
and Section 30, Article 2 of the consti
tution, has swept away. I would re
fer Mr. Hathawoy to an article of the
Columbus Press, May 21st, referring to
the unanimous decision of the Court in
the case of Bison vs Burson and de
livered by Judge Burkett. The article
of the "Press" will be left at the
Xeader for tho inspection of Mr. Hath
away. There is no cause for indigna
tion where no insult was intended. By
profiting of this occasion the public
would probably be pleased to know
what has become of the $5000 allowed
for the proposed market house?
Now, we all understand very well
the methods practiced here as well as
elsewhere about street paving. Mari
etta as a city of third grade and second
or third class has followed the usage
of another city of the same description
probably, and as all general laws
should apply to the whole Stete, and
also as a matter of course to all cities
alike and not to one city in particular,
the Supreme Court has declared such
laws unconstitutional. All laws should
"be based on common sense and common
justice; a law compelling a property
holder to pay for paving property not
his own, and the poorer classes to pay
for the wealthier ones is unjust, and
the usage of persons trafficking on said
improved streets and not paying for
the use thereof, is unjust. Mr. Hatha
way holds that by paving the abutting
property will increase in value. This
is his individual opinion and
lias no bearing on the justice or injus
tice thereof. Other persons hold that
the improvement, payable in half
yearly rates for twenty yars, is a
mortgage against the property, and
naturally an Incumbrance. Let each
have his own opinion and time will
chow who is right Let the oil busi
ness go down and we will say "Good
About the vote on those (15,000, we
know well how that is done. The man
holding no property votes for all ex
penses and the man haying a team of
any description or trafficking on said
streets votes "yes." because other peo
ple paying for his accommodation Bults
him well. If you want an honest opin
ion hold an election and'specify that
only free holders on said street shall
vote on the issue of bonds and on the
improvement and see what the result
may be. There is no justice to be had
by persons paying no taxes voting the
money out of other people's pockets,
and there is no justice by the poor man
payingten or twenty tlmos as much as
the wealthy man. Mr. Hathaway may
be very sincere Vy propotlng to haye
those affairs discuaed before the Coun
cil, but'lhe presfls the proper placcrto
dlscus3 those affairs, as it becomes
more generally known and Council
may be in the habit of treating com
plainants coming there rather cavalier
ly by some one making a motion to lay
it on the table or referring it to com
mittee, and that is the end of it.

this week. Their Collard No. 2 drop

have not yet succeeded in getting them
put. They are still fishing for the lost

little-hope of getting it out. ,The rig

Mallory Bros, havo sold their inter
est in the Cornell and C. C. Schauweck
er leases to Bruner & Bartlett. We
are informed the consideration was
SIS, 000. There are three producing
wells on these leases.
Haskell & Co. are getting up a new
rig on tho irvin uranaon lease ana
will drill it as soon as possible.
Mallory Bros, are ready to drill on
the Doutt five-acre lease, and will
probably begin today.
We are informed that a rig will be
put up on the Cotton lease in tho next
ten days. It belongs to Ohio parties.
There is nothing new at Whiskey
Run. Tho Nesbltt well is still plugged
up with tools.
The McCosh well is down some fifteen
hundred feet and drilling nicely.
The only sensation in the last week
has been the rich strike on the Dye
farm near Raven Rock, on the Ohio
side of the river. This well came in at
the rate of GOO barrels per day a week
ago, but at this writing has decreased
to 100 barrels per day. There is much
discuslon as to what it is and what
sand the oil comes from, but the gen
eral opinion seems to be that it is "Big
Injun" of the Wick. Oracle.
Near Letart, W. Va., Sayer & Roush
have leased 0,000 acres and will put in
several wells.- They are associated
with Pensylvania parties and will
doubtless make the venture go with a
whirl. In this same vicinity, but
further back from the river, Thomas
D. Van De Vort, his two brothers, and
W. H. Shelton, of Dunkirk, N. Y.,
through their agent, Wm. Wood, have
secured by lease in tho neighborhood
of 5,000 acres of territory on Little Mill
creek and Ten Mile and will have a
well down by tho first of July to pre
vent the forfeiture of all their leases.
Ellenboro, W. Va., May 31. The
connections have all been completed
this week and Cairo now has a good
supply of natural gas.
The Central Production Company's

will reach the sand about Thursday
The Cairo Oil Company's No. 5, on
the Davidson farm, is good for fifty
barrels per day.

The well drilling on the McGregor
farm is expected in by Tuesday.
Contractor Hugh Means, who is drill

at Cantwell Postofflce, has lost a string
In the Whisky run field the interest
centers on the McCosh farm well,
which Is expected in to-morrow. The
Strlckler Oil Company's No. 2 will not
be in for two weeks.
The well on the McKinney farm will
be commenced on Monday.
The well of Warren & Butts on the
Berg farm at Eight Mile was shot Sat
urday and bridged over. It will make
a small well.
The Mulligan well aboye Belpre is
down 600 feet.
The Dye well on Lease Run is hold
ing up well, at last account making
about 125 barrels per day.
Board of Health Meotln.
The Board of Health met last night
at the Mayor's office for the purpose of
reorganizing and appointing the Vice
President and Health Officer.
Dr. Hart, the Hoalth Officer whoso
term has just expired, suggested to tho
Board that it would be a good thing
for tho city to employ a sanitary po
liceman, whose duty it would be to
constantly scour the city for any nuis
ances that might exist and report tho
same to the Board of Health.
To keep all the. nuisancer, "about" the
jcityabaied requires more time than a
man who aaa ouiur uusmess can spare.
This would seem to be a good idea, and
in the l'ne of progress. The amount of
this kind of work is growing constant
ly with the city's increased population.
A large number of nuisances were re
ported to the Board.
Electric Bitters is a medicine suited
for any season, but perhaps more gen
erally needed, when the lancuid ex
hausted fooling prevails, when the
liver is '.orpia ana sluggish and the
need of a tonic and alterative is felt.
A prompt use of this medicine has
often averted long and perhaps fatal
bilious fevers. No medicine will act
more surely in counteracting and free
ing the system from the malarial
poison. Headache, Indigestion, Con
stipation, Dizziness yield to Electric
Bittern, 50c and $L00 per bottle at

Insorsoll on tho Coronation of tho
New York, May 81. The World re"
quested Robert G. Ingersoll to give the
readers of that newspaper an expres
sion regarding the ceremonies sur
rounding the coronation of tho Czar.
Tho Colonel compiled with tho request
as' follows: '
While reading tho accounts of tho
coronation of the Czar, of the pageants,
processions and feast, of tho pomp and
parade, of the barbaric splendor, of
cloth of gold and glittering gems, I
could not help thinking of tho poor
and melancholy peasants, of tho toll
ing, half-fed millions, of tho sad and
Ignorant multitudes who belong body
and soul to this Czar."
'I thought of the backs that1- have
been scarred .by the UnOut, of t)ie
thousands 'in prisons for having dared
to say a whiskered word for freedom,
of the great multitude who had 'been
driven like cattle along the Weary
roads that lead to the
hell op BinnniA.
The cannon at Moscow were not loud'
enough, nor the clang of the bells, nor
the blare of the trumpets to drown tho
groans of the captives. I thought of
tho fathers who had been torn from
wives and children for tho crime of
speaking like men. And when the
priests spoke of the Czar as the "God
selected man," the "God adorned man'i
my blood grew warm.
When I read of the coronation of the"
Czarina I thoughtof Sibera. I thought
of girls'working in the mines, hauling
ore from the pits with chains about
their waists; young girls almost naked
at the meicy of brutal officials; young
girls weeping and moaning their lives
away because between their pure lips
the word liberty had burst into blos
som. Yet law neglects, forgets them and
crowns the Czarina. The injustice, the
agony and horror in this poor world
arc enough to make mankind insane.
IGNORANCE AND SUPERSTITIOJf
Crown impudence and tyranny. Mil
lions of money squandered for the hu
mililiation of man to dishonor the peo
ple. Back of the coronation, back of
all the ceremony, back of all the hy
pocrisy there is nothing but a lie.
It is not true that God "selected"
this Czar to rule and rob a hundred
million of human beings. It is all an
ignorant, barbaric, superstitious lie a
lie that pomp and pageant and flaunt
ing flags and robed priests and swing
ing censors cannot change to'the truth.
Those who are not blinded by the
glare of glitter at Moscow can see mil
lions of homes on which the shadows
fall, see milons of weeping mothers,
whose children have been stolen by the
Czar; see the thousands of villages,
without schools, millions of houses
without books, millions and millionsof
men, women and children in whose
future there is no star and whose only
friend is death.
The coronation is an insult to the
Long live the people of Russia!

For a Bicyclo Track.
Editor Leader: Now that the bi
cycle races are over and the wheelmen
of the city have time to look the situa
tion over, I want to make a suggestion.
Tho race meet just oyer has demon
strated that cycle racing has taken a
great hold on our people. It is a clean
sport and interesting and exciting. To
the minds of many it is preferable to
horse-racing. It is well known that
the track at tho Fair Grounds is not fit
for bicycle racing owing to the sharp
and unbanked turns. For this reason'
it is impossible to make fast time; be
sides it is almost an impossibility to
get a smooth track.
What then can be done to secure a
I believe that a good cement track,
with wide, well banked turns could bo
make at a not very high costT Make
the track about 30 feefwide and place
it inside the -present track; let it be
a third mile in length. - If this can be
done we will then have as good a track
for cycle racing as there is in Ohio.
How can the money bo raised to
build it? I believe that if an agree
ment can be made between the Lobdell
Club and the Fair Association as to the
use of the track, the money could be
raised by private subscription among
the devotees of the sport.
These ideas are only those of one
who is interested in the sport and
wouia ntie very mucn to see such a
track built Why can't the Lobdell
Club take the matter in hands and see
what can be done. It could be no
harm and might be productive of much.

sults were almost marvelous in the case
of my wife. While I was pastor of the
Baptist Church at Rives Junction she
was brought down with Pneumonia
succeeding La Grippe. Terrible parox
ysms of coughing would last for hours
witn jiuie interruption . ana it seemed
as if she could not survive them. A
friend recommended Dr. King's New
Discovery; it was quick in its work
and,, highly satisfactory in results."
