Another waiter girl saloon was
started Saturday night by a man called
Sieber, on Jefferson street. Tbat one
started rather light, however, as but
one girl was on band to make it pleas

very large crowd was disappointed.
It will be seen tbat Tiffin is pretty
well fixed in this line, but we believe
tbat two more waiter girl saloons are
needed to do our people full justice.

It wasn't allbiutl, it seems, after

be has, through bis attorney, Judee

"falsely, wickedly and maliciously
composing and publishing, Ac," and
asks that be receive from the said O.
T. Locke tbe sum of ten thousand dol

said O. T. Locke responds In his own
defense, in an article containing 3
counts, showing conclusively that the
Centennial waiter-girl saloon man,
Reedy, is not entitled to said dam
ages, and if tbey are, they can't get
it, for the reason that tbe said O. T.
Locke bas not got any such sum.
The Tiffin Tribcite plumes itself
on the fact- that it bas a ten thousand

Bro. Locke, of tbe Tiffin Tribune,

The London Agricultural Gazette
says of tbe crop prospects in Eng
11 is piain tuaii377 win prove no
exception to tbe succession of tbe
unfortunate harvests we have lately
experienced. 1 be wheat croo is cer
tainly very generally and very large
ly below tne average. Oats and win
ter beans seem to be the best of tbe
grain crops of tbe year. On tbe other
hand, it bas been and is a great year
for graziers and dairy farmers. All
kinds of cattle are found uuusually
aDundant. Potatoes, wbich were so
promising, are now very generally
threatened with disease. The bay
crop is abundant.
Our village and Its Immediate vl
cinity shows a degree of prosperity
and enterprise wbich far surpasses
that of any other year.
The"city fathers" have arisen from
their lethargy and are giving the town
a general renovating, tbe results of
wblcb are very apparent in tbe at
tractive features of the place. A move
ment is on foot we understand to put
down new asbstantial board walks
upon the principal streets of the town
In place of tbe gravel ones wbich are
now In use. This certainly would be
a move in tbe right direction, for
when spring opens it is a difficult task

Through a mistake we were in
formed that Mr. Nlffln was one of the
young men wbo disturbed tbe preach
ing upon Sunday evening a week
Such, however, was not tbe case. Mr.
Niffin, Mr. N. Kime and Jake Staub
were arrested for misconduct in church
some time last Jane, and bad a hear
ing with tbe disturbers of Sunday
night. Mr. Niffin plead guilty and
was fined $1.00 and costs. Staub and
Kime were acquitted. We make the
correction out of justice to Mr. Niffin,
who bad no connection whatever with
the Osterholt boys.
John Oster nolt bas given himself np
to tbe officers, who took him before
tbe Justice of tbe Peace, aad Imposed
a floe of $1.00 and costs, amounting
in all to $4.50, after paying which he
was released. We hope this will have
tbe desired effect upon tbe boys, and
tbat hereafter no disturbances will
occur. It was rather severe on tbe
boys, but something had to be done to
protect the church-going people from
being imposed upon. Those arrested
were not tbe only ones who have dis
turbed the meetings and violated the
laws of the church, but a number of
other young men and boys, and some
wnose parents are cnurcn members,
are equally as guilty of misconduct.
Hereafter an eye will be kept upon

Newton Robinson, son of Mr. and
Mrs. James E. Robinson, wbo lives
about two miles south-west of town,
after breakfast started Newton for
tbe woods to haul stave bolts ; and
was expected to take an early dinner,
so that be could take a load to Desbler
In the afternoon. Not eoming to
dinner at the appointed time, his lit
tle brother was sent to see what was
tbe matter. On arriving at
tbe woods be found bis broth
er dead, fastened between the load
of stave bolts and a tree, which
leaned over tbe road. Mr. Robinson
said tbe tree was broken a few feet
from tbe ground and rested on the
stump at one end and on tbe top at
tbe other end, and he said tbat they
bad passed under the leaning tree all
the season. He supposed the boy
drove too high upon the roots of the
tree, and leaned his body forward and
was caught between the load and tree.
The boy was fifteen years and five
months old, and was burled at Mc
Comb last Sunday.
Saturday afternoon of la.it week,
Lyman Haddox, of Van Buren, met
with a fatal accident, under the fol

and was fixing something about tbe

some way got caught lu the belting
and was whirled rapidly around the
shaft with such force as must have
killed bim almost Instantly. He was
alone in the room at tbe lime, and tbe
attention of bis partner was called to
tbe fact of something wrong by a par
tition close to the main shaft being
knocked down, when be instantly
signaled the engineer to stop tbe en
gine, and on going to ascertain tbe
cause of the alarm found Mr. Haddox
lying under the shaft dead. He was
horribly mangled, tbe left leg being
broken la two places, tbe right leg
broken, both arm broken, tbe skull
fractured so tbat the braics oozed oat,
and was scarcely recognizable as a
human form. Tbe Coroner was sent
for, but after be ascertained the cause
of the death did not deem it necessary
to hold an inquest. Mr. Haddox
leaves a wife and one child t mourn
bis sad and untimely deatb.
Thursday last, William Moss and
Alfred Smith, of Upper Sanduiky,
both colored, bad a controversy about

produced bis revolver aud fired
at Smith. One shot missing, tbe
other took effect on the top of his
bead, shaving oil a little or tbescaip.
By this time Smith concluded that
tbe business was getting serious,
clinched bis adversary, and, during
the struggle, Moss fired tbe third shot
which took effect in bis own leg, pro
ducing a fifah wound. Smith made
complaint and bad Moss arrested In
tbe afternoon, and a bearing took
place before Allen Smalley, J, P., In
tbe evenlnr. which resulted In bind
ing Moss over to Court In the sum of
500, which was not at Moss' com
mand, and he was sent to jail.

Correspondence Tiffin Tribune.
WASHINGTON, D. C., Aug. 20.
A very important case has jut been
tried, involving a claim to
238.000 ACRES OF LAND.
It was heard before Hon. CarlSohurx,
Secretary cr tbe Interior, and Assist
ant .Attorney-General Marble. Hon.
Matt. Carpenter aad ex-Governor
Crawford, of Kansas, appeared for
tbe State of Kansas against the Gov
ernment. The case was this : When
Kn.as was admitted into the Union
in 1S61, tbe act or admission gave to
the State for school purposes every
thirteenth and thirty-sixth section in
each township or the publio lands.
About half tbe territory, however, bad
been previously given to tbe Indians
as reservations, which baa lately
been ceded back to the United States
by the redskins. Tbe SUte now
claims tbe same sections in the reser
vations, and the question was wheth
er sbe bad any right to them. After
bearing exhaustive arguments on
both sides, tbe Court gave the 236,000
acres to the State. Tbe decision will
be held as a precedent when other
reservations are abandoned, and many
millions of acres will thus be taken
from tbe general Government In
process of time.
TIMES IN WASHINGTON.
There are signs of improvement at
the Capital. Business men are in
belter spirits ; there is an active
movement in real estate, and many
new bouses are going up. Hon. Jobu
Sherman, as shrewd a business man
as there is in the country, sees tbe
bright future for this city, and a short
time ago be bought a squire for $13,
000 and Is now putting up a number
of private dwellings for rent, some
thirty odd in nnmber. There is a
great demand Just now for elegant
private houses to rent for the winter,
and real estate men say the demand
is unequalled. Not only Congress
men, but politicians, lobbyists and
men of means are coming In from all
over the country anticipating a lively
and interesting session of Congress
this winter. Tbe labor question, the
tariff, the southern Improvement's
such as tbe Mississippi levees and the
Texas Pacific railroad will all preos
for attention, and will have it.
Washington used to be called tbe
"city of magnificent distances," but
these distanoes are rapidly being filled
up with elegant buildings, until tbe
city, despite tbe vast area it covers,
begins to show considerable solidity.
When the people embark in manu
factures, aa tbey talk of doing, great
prosperity awaits them.
A SWEET SUBJECT.
The uew Commissioner of Agricul
ture says be knows how we can save
sixty millions of dollars every year in
this country, and that la by tbe pro
duction at home of tbe sugar tbat is
now raised abroad.? Sixty million dol
lars is a large sum to send out of tbe
country every year for sweetening.
Tbe Commissioner says we can raise
the sugar beet here as profitably as
tbey do in France, and those wbo
have tried It, agree with him, that
we might as well raise it aa not. Here
then is a new source of wealth to the
farmers of the United States, which
one would think tbey would be only
toe glad t avail themselves of.
THE ARMY REORGANIZATION.
The Congressmen from the South
gay they will vote solid) v In favor of
Increasing tbe strength of the army,
and tbey are urging tbe President to
advise to Increase tbe regiments to
twelve companies Instead of ten aa
now constituted. This would give
the army one hundred additional
lieutenants and fifty captains. Tbe
plan proposed would also give to each
regiment an additional lieutenant
colonel and major, which would make
twenty-five new officers of each
grade, or two hundred commissioned
officers extra. The South claims to
be but sparsely rspresented among
the officers of the army, wblcb Is true,
but which is her own fault, and she
now wants the bulk of tbe new ap
pointments made from her people. If
this will be done tbe Southern Con
gressmen will vote to make the in
crease proposed, and as tbe increase
can not be made without their votes,
there is a probability of carrying their
point. They say, in addition, that
this giving them a show In tbe offi
cers, will make tbe army as popular
as ever In their section. Tbe army
would thus be increased from 25.000
(its present force) to 30,000, wbich by
the way is not enough by 20,000, for
the general opinion now Is that fifty
thousand troops are none too many,
considering our Indian relations and
the vast Mexican frontier we have to
THE CANADIAN POLICY.
Canada never has any trouble with
her Indians. Tbey get along nicely
over tbe border, and people are asking
why this Is so, while we are tor
mented out of our lives by con
tinual warfare and butcheries. Mr.
Hayes has been inquiring Into the
propriety of adopting tbe Canadian
policy toward tbe redskins. One diffi
culty in the way is the fact that in
British America they have all tbe
game and fish necessary to render tbe
savage self-supporting, but we have
very little on our reservations. In
Canada tbey permit tbe fndiaos to
roam and bunt everywhere, as tbey
have no reservations. Hence tbey con
sider each redskin as a subject of the
government, and make no treaties
with tribes. If a redskin does wrong
be is caught and punished ; and if a
white wrongs a red he is also punish
ed; all of wbich seems to be more
sensible than to treat each tribe aa an
independent nation, and make formal
treaties with them as we would with
Great Britain or France. It is thought
some of tbe best features of the Can
adian policy will be adopted hereafter
in our treatment of the Indiana.
GOING TO BURN THEM UP.
People who think eremationlsts are
not Increasing in this country are la
boring under a delusion. There 'are
many people wbo firmly believe in
burning dead belies, and Washing
ton bas plenty of them. Their belief
is taking a practical form, for a cor
poration of wealthy individuals is
talked of who propose to erect a cre
mation furnace In this District Tbe
plan is to purchase ground on some
high hill, build a small, bot elegant
chapel at its base, and on tbe summit
erect tne furnace. Tbe projectors are
in d'std earnest, and tbey believe tbe
number of cremationista will rapidly
Increase when once the facilUes are
offered at reasonable rates for tbe
proper and respectful cremation of tbe
MUST PAY THEIR DEBTS.
There are some dead-beaU among
the Treasury clerks, and John Sber
man is after tbem with a sharp prod.
Tbey get $100 to $130 a month cash as
talari and vet never pay a board
bill, or grocer's account, or settle with
tbeir landlord or their washerwoman.
Wben they can get credit no longer
at tbe old places tbey betake them
selves to pastures new, and swindle
somebody else. Heretofore tbe gov
ernment has paid no heed to com
plaints from creditor, replying tbat
it was not tbe business of tb govern
ment to atund to uch things ; but
tbe evil bas grown to such dimen
sions, and there are sucb new-fan gted
notions of honesty prevalent ander
tbe present administration, tbat an
order has been just liued from tbe
Department to the effect tbat if clerks
do not promptly pay their honest
debts, it will be a sufficient cawus for
aixmaai; This is rinht. If a man

The vacancy on the sunrema fnh
made by the election of Judo-n n;.

for tbe Judge expects to take bis seat
In tbe Senate In October. People are
beginning to wonder who will receive
the appointment, as it is really tbe
beat thing within the gift of the Presi
dent. It has hepn t...v i,;nt.i
that It is to go to a Southern man.
though this is by no means certain.
Tbe President, who is a thorough law
yer, himself, and whose knowledge of
the leading lawyers of tbe country is
ample, win scarcely make a mistake
in choosing a first-class man. It was
at one time thought Hen. Stanley
Matthews was to have tbe place, but
public opinion does not look for that

UP IN A BALLOON.
A balloon ascension was made from
tbe Zoological Garden, atClncinnati,
on Saturday last by a lady, who de
scribes her ascension and aerial voy
age as follows :
"Precisely at 4:30 P. M.. 8atorday,
as advertised, I succeeded In getting
off my 'flight to cloudland' from the
Zoological Garden, In tbe balloon
"Sonnyslde," and, after the bad luck
we bad on other advertised ascen
sions, I was well pleased. The weath
er Ibis time was most favorable all
through for the trip, tbe principal
winds being surface nothing to men
tion in tbe upper strata at first. Tbe
Inflation or tbe balloon at tbe Garden
takes a long time, as tbe service pipe
Is but two Inches In diameter, and you
are compelled to commence filling at
lu tbe morning to be ready in time.
Amid tbe plaudits and waving of
bandkerculea or the multitude, I
slowly arose to a height of about 800
feet, where I struck a current tbat
carried me due east. I then noticed,
well as others, tbat I was not very
high, and at a signal made by Professor
Uarry Gilbert rrom tbe ground, 1
commenced to throw out sand, and
slowly ascended until I reached some
2.000 feet. This altitnde was main
tained for a distance of some tbree
miles, I should judge, wben the cur
rent becoming stronger I rapidly rose
higher and higher, still going east,
and while crossing1 a stream, I think
tbe Little Miami River, my barome
ter marked over 6,000 feet. I shortly
after struck a different current, and
twice I crossed tbe Ohio River, passing
also over a number of towns and vil
lages wbich looked perfectly splendid
from that height, though quits
dtminntive. Tbe lifting capacity of
tbe balloon seemed to be growiug
stronger as tbe rays of the sun fell
directly on it, and I was carried along
nicely, not noticing tbe distance, until
I descried what I thought would be a
nice field to land on. Pulling the valve
cord, 1 commenced to descend, and
found that tbe field was composed of
corn, and as I know my manager
would not like to pay damages, I con
cluded not to drop in that, and throw
ing out ballast sailed on ; but bad
cause to regret it afterwards, for upon
descending again I called to several
men to catch the drag-rope, but they
were either afraid or lse did not bear
me, as tbey took no notice. Seeing
that I must make tbe landing alone,
threw out tbe anchor, wbich after
dragging awhile, caught In tbe top of
tree, wblcb was not a good place to
land ; so I bad to cut it away, and
then rise sufficient to pass over the
trees, wben, soon after, 1 found peo
ple wbo were desirous of lending their
aid, tbe principal person being Mr. A.
Hopper, wbo understood what was
wanted, and he, with others, aided
me In landing successfully and safe
ly. The spot, I afterwards was In
formed, was the farm of J. 8. Paddi-
son, of Fruit Hills Post-office, Hamil
ton County, Ohio, twelv mile from
Cincinnati. To is gentleman and bis
family were very kind and hospitable.
and by bis efforts, Mr. Henry Bogert,
and others, we soon bad the balloon
In shape to return to the city, where I
arrived about 9:30 P. M., having been
in tbe air over an bonr. ana traveled,
believe, tbe longest distance of any
ladv aeronaut alone. At no time
could I see Cincinnati for the amok,
but tb surrounding hills and valleys
ars most beautiful, and abould be seen
from the altitude I reached to appre
ciate their beauty.

London, Aug. 15. Her Majesty,
tbe Queen. In council at Osborne yes
terday, ordered tbe prorogation of
Parliament from to-day nnui Oct. 3U.
The Queen's speech, which was read
by commission, waa as ronowi :
My Lords aud Gentlexen : I
am bappy to be able to release you
from your attendance upon Parlia
ment. My relations with all foreign
powers continue friendly. Tbe ex
ertions which, since tb commence
ment of tbe disturbance In Eastern
Europe, I have not ceased to make for
the maintenance of general peace, un
fortunately have not been successful.
On the outbreak or the war between
Russia and tbe Ottoman Empire, I de
clared my Intention of preserving an
attitude or neutrality as long
as tbe Interests of tbe coun
try remained unaffected. Tbe ex
tent and nature of those interests
were further defined in a communica
tion which I caused to be addressed
to tbe Government of Russia, and
wbich elicited a reply Indicating
friendly disposition on tbe part of
tbat Bute. I shall not fall to use my
best efforts wben a suitable oppor
tunity occurs for tbe restoration of
peace on terms compatible with tbe
bonor of tbe belligerent and with tb
general safety and welfare of other
nations. If In the course or the con
teat tbe rights or my Empire should
be assailed or endangered, I should
confidently rely on your help to vln
eate and maintain tbem. Tne appre
hensions or serlons famine in South
ern India which I communicated to
you at tbe opening of tbe session
bav. I grieve to say, been fully veri
fled. Tbe visitation wblcb bas fallen
npon my subject In Madras aod
Bombay and upon tbe people of
Mysore baa been of extreme severity,
and Its duration I likely to be pro
longed. No exertion will be wanlius
on tb part of my Indian Govrnment
to mitigate this terrible calamity.
Tbe proclamation of my sovereign
ity In Transvaal ha been received
throughout the province with enthu
siasm. It ha Im been accepted with
marked satisfaction by toe native
chief and tribes, and the war which
threatened In lu progre to com
promise th safety of my ubjecU in
800th Africa I happily brought to a
close. I trust tbat tbe measure which
baa been passed to enahl the Euro
pean eommunitlea or South Africa
tonoitenpon such term a may be
agreed ou, will be tbe mean of pre
venting a recurrence of similar dan
ger, and will Increase and consolidate
tbe prosperity or this important part
of my dominion.
