Siinatoh John M. Palmer, candidate
ofthe'National Democrats forl'rcsident,
is expected to make a speech in the Sen
ate some time this week, in which he
will givo his views on the future of the
Kold' Democrats. Tho speech will he
watched for with great interest. Sen
ator Palmer has had little to say since
the election, and his speech.willhe full
and explicit. Senator Palmer has some
interesting Ideas of tho situation in the
South. He believes that new leaders
are coming to the front in all the South
ern States. lie still expresses tho be
lief that the Democrats, could have won
in tho recent election if they had nom
inated a Southern man, like Judge Tur

so desired the nomination of Judgo Tur

Fkom the Penitentiary News eman
ates with constancy a flow of wit and
humor that is irrepressible ; and con
sidering the circumstances and the sur
roundings of the editor and contribu

"Mr. N. D. Vincint, of Dayton, 0 , a

folks outside could hear that sigh,
you'd get mo a pardon."
"Ilavo you seen the State shop com

They look like a bejuad of West Point
cadets. They are line upstanding
young fellows and Guard MoAvoy may
well be proud of them. I used to march

he ought to be." And I toll them it
aint fair to judge a man by his looks.
I say to them "You might be struck

Tho Putnam MiKtaiy academy has
ceased tho regular academic work for
tho term. Instructions will go on,
however, by tho tutors, though tho
principal, II. 15. Smith, will be com
pelled, by ill health, to discontinue the
regular work. In the fall theacadomy
will resume tho usual course, either
under a new lease or as a branch of one
of the colleges of the state. Some time
ago arrangements were made for the
transfer of the school to tho guidanco
'of one of tho larger colleges, but
through the delay of a letter the deal
fell through. The academy was estab

cities lor tho higher univorsity course.
Sliues In Ohio
In looking over documents in the of
fice of tho state sinking fund commis
sion Secretary Malcolm Jennings came ,
across an old compendium of the feder
al census of IbJtf, It shown that there I
were at that time three slavcb in Ohio.
Ono was i'i Lawrence, ono in Morgan ,
and ono in Xoble county. It has been
frequently asserted that there never1
were any slaves in this state. This
would seem Is controvert tliat. The
ulavcs listed in this census had probab-'
ly been brought by their owners from
southern states on moving to Ohio.

court Monday to test the constitution
ality of the Torreuco laud ten

ed in this state uud which will
become operative on tho first of next

adopted the new system of real estate

grouud upon which this decision was
based has been avoided In tho Ohio
