We desire to call attention to a com

tho Republican Clubs of the county.
Every effort should be made to keep
all theso organizations alive and active
that they may repeat in succeeding

certain to make a terrific fight next
year for tho Stato Administration and
the United States Senatorship and
eternal vigilance should bo the Repub

Fortunately for tho party in Ohio,
the manly disposition and good judg

To tiie Republican Clubs of Wash
On behalf of the Ohio State League
of Republican Clubs, and the County
Executive Committee, we want to
thank you for your splendid work dur
ing the campaign just closed.
We would urge you to continue your
organization and meet at least once a
month and keep your Club-room open
for the discussion of political questions,
also for social and literary purposes,
thus affording a place in each com
munity where you are located, in which
people can assemble at stated intervals,
for social gatherings and political de
bates, lectures and literary exercises.
If you cannot do this, wo would sug
gest that you consider the question of
forming a Central Republican Club at
Marietta, with Club Rooms for a politi
cal and social center for all the Repub
licans throughout the County.

asked for no gifts, docs not expect to
secure any endowments, and will ap
peal neither to the charity nor the
beneficence of the public in any way.
The students and teachers who arc on
the ground are working with their own
hands at the eonstructibn'of the build
ings, a,nd arc carrying oil the agricul
tural worlc of tho school, all of which
is done without compensation. The
labor is employed directly in produc
ing the food, clothing, fuel and shelter
necessary for their own. comfortable
existence. When this labor has pro
vided these necessities, tjie balance of
their timo is devoted to study,
Tho educational workers are build
ing up their own city; including houses,
school and farm. The dwellings aro
cottages, 12 by IS feet on tho ground,
and a story and a half high, with first
class cedar shingle roofs. The school
building is 10 by 32 feet on the ground,
and two stories high, containing a reci
tation room, 1G by 24, and eight small
rooms. They have built five miles of
fences; planted fruit trees and 500
grape vines; have set out an immense
garden of about ten acres; have fields
containing 20,000 sweet potato plants,
22 acres of Irish potatoes, 80 acres of
oats, 250 acres of corn, 40 acres of
sorghum, 20 acres of millet and 20 acres
of buckwheat, all of which is in very
fine condition. It is the universal ver
dict of the large number of visitors
that no finer crops nor better farming
is to be found anywhere than here.
The cottages are built in a sort of
semicircle, following a slight raise of
ground which is everywhere overgrown
with blue grass. It would be difficult
to find, or to produce even with a con
siderable expenditure of money, a more
beautiful location for the home than
this little grove has furnished, ready
made. The form in which the'bulldings aro
constructed is that of a small village,
but there is no subdivision of land, and
no sale of lots. The school will hold, in
its own name and for its own use, all
land, houses, shops and' implements of
every hind. There is no way in which
any person can secure a speculative or
even legitimate business interest in any
of the work of this school. There is no
plan for admitting, for residence in this
village, anyone who does not come sole
ly for an educational purpose. The
&chool simply provides an opportunity
for study to those who aro .willing, by
their own toil, to take advantage ot
such opportunity; nnd the only return
offered for labor is mental training.
The man who docs not want to study has
no reason for going there, and will not
be admitted, or, if admittedly mistake,
will not bo permitted to return. All
who aro not willing to labor with their
own hands nt tasks necessary to com
fortable existence aro alto excluded.
In fact this unique community com
bines the elements of socialism and
communion, and it is to be hoped with
out any of their evils. The aim of tho
students of tho People's university is
to Bink individualism and accomplish
tho greatest good for all.
nero is the order of tho day's work:
Tho rising bell rings at four o'clock,
breakfast is at six, chapel at G:30, and
nil hands attend this morning service in
their working clothes. They go direct
from this service to their work in tho
field. At 11:45 the bell rings a field call
to dinner. Dinger is at 12ao,ant.tho
classes begin at it 30. At oiao tnccwes
room work is over; supper is at six.
From 0:30 to eight the time is Bpont in
rest and ptay, and from eight to nine
in study, after which tho day is dono and
all retire. Sunday forenoon is one's
own for rending and rent, nnd nt thrco
in the nftcrnoon a service' of public wor
ship is held. Tho use o'f tobacco, Intox
icants nnd opiates is not permitted rt ith
in the university's precincts.
The work of building this community
was undertaken by Walter Thomas
Mills, who, as field secretary for tho
organization, is entirely responsible for
its management. The appointment of
teachers, securing of students, direction

COUNTING OF THE VOTES.
In I'.econt Elections Thcro Ilns Ilcrn Llt
tlo Fraud in New Vorl..
The counting of votes has been in
the past more fruitful of trickery and
falsification than any other part of
the election process. In 1893 the can
Nassers in certain districts reduced tho
matter to its lowest terms by simply
reporting a Unnnimous vote on their
side, and then going out to fling up their
hats for the rest of tho night. In the
subsequent election competent and in
corruptible men supervised the canvass
so strictly that tho percentage of fraud
was so small, if any existed, us never to
be heard of. This watching, says a
writer in Century, at the count not only
precntcd intentional lying, but savc.l
accidental mistakes. In ono case the
board of inspectors confessed they did
not know how to count- the votes, and
Kiibmitted entirely to tho guidance of.
o well-informed watcher.
Tho counting is done in public, and
Is often an interesting sight. Every or
ganization and each candidate may
send a representative to observe it,
though nobody but the inspectors is
permitted to touch the ballots. Tho
straight tickets are firstcountcd in tens
by four men in succession, and a tally
is kept by at leqsttwo assistants. Each
name is credited with as many votes
as there are tickets for his side. Then
one inspector reads off of those tickets
which are "split," or have, pastors at
tached, or upon which names have been
"rased or new names writtoi), and each
candidate is credited with a vote every
time his name appears. When this is
finished the most promiucnt office is
taken up, and the sum of the votes for
each candidate is ascertained.

HI., without other capital than is gen

"poor, talented and ambitious." Nat
ure and life on blue grass soil made him
a great orator. Indeed, as a biographer
expressed It, "besides his greatstrength
of mind, there was no man in Illinois,
before or since his day, that surpassed
him in pure, natural eloquence." Mc
Lean's first serious trjal of his power
was for a seat in congress upon the ad
mission of his adopted stato into tho
union in 1818. Ills opponent was Dan
iel V. Cook, also a Kentucklan, from
Scott county, "quick, wiry, eloquent
and determined." On stumps of trees
