to Miss Willard, and Hon. A. A Ludlow.
were introduced, and each addressed a few
words to the convention. 1
Mrs. II. K. Hammond, chalrnau-of the
committee on plan of work, mide her re
port, recognizing the pressure ff labor as
demanded b) the fort lines of activity,
yet de-iring to emphasize several interests
demanding greater attention? Every
count) not now organized should
be brought into line, and
those now organized should be urged
to complete the organizations to Include
with the regular unions the "Vs" and
' I.oyal Temperance Legions." And these
latter were urged to press the matter of the
totiaecoevii. ami mat me unions seek to se
cure laws forbidding the sale of tobacco to
minors The evangelistic workhonld he
pressed more to the front ever where by
general and local evangelists in cnnticctlou
with other work. Infirmary work was pre
sented as a tine field demanding a special
state superintendent. A stirring resolution
was introduced expressing the determina
tion to i ress the demand for a law requiring
compulsory scientific Instruction In the
public schools. The report urged also that
protests be sent to the school board of Cin
cinnati against the Introduction In the
schools of that clt of text books giving pt r
nlclous and false instruction on the effects
of alcoholic drinks.
The event of the afternoon, and perhaps
the most interesting presentation of depart
ment work during the convention, was the
presentation of the report of the depart-
J ment of sclentllic Instruction In public
schools, b Mrs Fann It. loiter, of Mans
field. Mrs. I.citcr is second to no lad In
tho state as a platform speaker, and her
wise, persistent and nearl successful cam
paign through which she was able to al
most secure the passage of a bill In the
legislature during last winter, has brought
hi r prominently before the people of the
state Xo efforts put forth by the W. C.
T.U. during thelast ear have done so much
to bold public sentiment to the support
of the organization since its radical support
given to the prohibition party two ear
ago, as the work accomplished under the
labors of this indefatigable little woman.
Ilei report gave a full aud graphic descrip
tion of the obstacles she met and the
methods used to overcome them, and for a
time almost single handed. With burning
words she criticised the apathy which char
acterized the want of suppost given her by
the organization at large, in the state, yet
with generous expression sue cr-ultel them
with a waking up and putting fnrtd of val
uable effort at last, but when it -was v al
most too late to be of sen ice. At the con
clusion of her address she laid down the re
sponsible work to be taken up h other
hands for the coming ear. This will. how
ever, lianll) be allowed. Ail good people
who favor the just measures
proposed by the sought-for legis
lation will join the organization
in urging that she be continued at the head
of this department of work, as it is one
upon which all temperance workers, irre
spective of part atlillations, can agree.
Mrs. Anna IL Husse presented the
report on state and count fairs.
Efforts had been successfully made to sup-
M'ul "" places me luucil counters aim

distribute elevating literature. At the con
elusion of her report a vote ot thanks was
given the speaker for her unusually difficult
task so successful!) done.
All these reports of department work
showed such an amount of earnest. Intelli
gent, selfdenying work and an expenditure
of funds, well applied, by state, district,
county 4 local officials, that, consider
ing the fact that they hav e labored without'
salary and have often paid, in large part,
their own expenses, seemed marvelous.

been able to work so successful!).
Mrs. Moore presented to the convention
the tour little girls vvhoweresodelightfull

collection was taken to bu) each a book.
Mrs Shields, chairman of the committee
on resolutions, presetted a partial report,
w hlch. on motion, was accepted. As there
was no time for discussion, no further ac
tion w as taken.
Aver) sarcastic resolution was offered,
calling the prohibition part) to an account
for their very palpapble evasion of the
woman suffrage issue at its last state con
vention, which was loudly oheered. but on
maturer thought it w as considered best not
pass it, and it w as tabled.
A resolution was adopted to present the
action of the state union, introducing the
pace department to the Xationai conven
tion, and to ask the Xationai I'nlon to es
tablish a department for that line of work.
Miss Francis E Willard was introduced,
and called attention to the publishing de
partment Kev. J. P. Mills called atten
tion to the lti n nt io as an excellent daily
paper, whose editorials and reports con
cerning the convention were ver) fair and
full, considering its standpoint, and com
mended it to the convention for such re
ports. Benediction b) Kev. Kyle.
At the WlgMam.
The wigwam was packer! to its utmost
possibility at an earl) hour, to listen to
Miss Frances E Willard. of Chicago, the
brilliant, cultured, eloquent platform speak
er and the energetic president of the Xa
tionai Christian Temperance Union.
A song was sung b) the chorus of excel
lent voices. Scripture was read by Mrs.
Trego, state evangelist. and prayer was of
fered b) Kev. Joseph K)le. A plea for
money was made by Miss Esther Pugh, and
a collection of S30 was received. During
Miss Pugh's seech she paid i glowing
tribute to the hospitality of the Springheld
citizens, than which more magnanimous
aud generous hospitality had never been
received b) the union.
Miss Willard was then introduced and
held the audience spell bound for over an
hour. Xo epitome of the speech would do
her justice, and we attempt none. Her
closing words in presenting the White Cross
department of the work of the union was
the most beautiful piece of word-painting
imaginable and fell upon the audience like
gentle, refreshing, purify ingrain.

THE "BROWN SOCIAL."
A Delightful li rut the Trinity Baptist
The "brown social," given at the Trinit)
Biptist church last evening, deserved a
much better patronage than was bestowed
upon it. but it was, despite the small at
tendance, a ver) pltasant affair. The num
ber present was snialh r thin was expected,
o.vmg to the fact that many of the members
attended the address by Miss Francis E
Willard at the wigwam. The novel title of
the entertainment had its origin in the na
ture of the refreshments which vvereinva

clear amber coffee, crisp doughnuts, ginger
bread and brown bread, with such dainties
as chocolate creams, brown tally, etc. The

Arousing republican meeting was held
at Selini list (Thursda)) evening, which
was addresses! l) William M. Kockel. esq ,
of this cit) . The meeting w as called to or
der b) the central couiuiltteein m of that
precinct Dr. Bitten. -Mr. V. V. Branson
was chosen chairman of the meeting. Ex
cellent music was furnished by the newl)
organized cornet baud of Selma, and the
members showed their ability to pla) nue
An enthusiastic Foraker club was organ
ized and about hfty names vvero signed to
the roll before the audience left the hall.
The election of ollicers of the club was de
ferred until the nett meeting.
Mr. Knckcl spoke for an hour and a half,
and his spee hw is enthusiastically received.
His argument on tho temperance question
was especially good, and it hail the merit
of being original as well as strong. On
this question ho spoke in substance as fol
lows. A few words upon the temperance ques
tion. 1 have no quarrel with the temper
ance advocate or prohibitionist upon the
greatness, the vastness, the devllishness of
the evil of Intemperance. Would that I
had the omnipotent iiovver to forever keen
every one from its baneful, degrading, de
But how is this great evil to be remedied?
How is this great curse to be ov ercome?
What Is to be done with it that will result
for the best interest and welfare of all our
people? These are the questions for our
statesmen to solve, ror our parties to inves
tigate and aiiVKSte.
The republican party says, pass such
laws as the progress of the age demands
and the sentiment of the peopla will en
force. The prohibitionists sa), pass a prohib
itory law whether you can enforce It br
Democracy resolves itself iu favor of a
license law which, from the past experi
ence in Ohio, It feels and knows it ntver
can hav e.
Which of these presents the most sen.I-
ble. practical ideas? Laws that cannot and
win not le enforced ought never to be
placed on our statute books. They are not
mere waste of that much ink. type aud pa
per. They are more: the are posltlvel)
injurious. In this government the gov
erned are the governors Let only good
and just laws Iw placed on the statute
books and sacredly in the execution of the
great trust devolving upon every patriotic
American let him , that the) are hon
ored, resected and obe)od.
It is often said, especially by our prohi
bitionist friends, that the repub'lcan party
is not the friend of te uperance legislation,
sither la a state or national sense. I think
if you will bear witli me for a few moments
I sbill be able to show) on the brazen falsi
ty of this" repeated assertion. Uuon this
great question, like every one vrfch was
ever be'e-e the Amerieac -peoyle ameeibsil
organization ot tne repuoncan I arty. It has
been found steadily, manfully battling for
that which tends to improve and elevate
the condition of mankind.
In IsSC the democratic anil republican

Ilcan platform agalint temperance legisla

This shows that not only is the demo
cratic party opposed to all practical tempe
rance legislation, but that the republican
party is iu favor of all measures which will
be the most effectual for the lessening or
eradicating the evil of intemperance.
How, in the face of the above platform
declarations, airyone can say that the re
publican party is not in favor of teu1p3ran.ee
legislation I am unable to understand. Hon
it can be said that there is no distinction
between the two great parties 011 this sub

In answer to these questions Mr. K.ickel

From one hundred and sevent)-five to

If their is any virtue whatever in driving
out the saloon this law is certainly entitled

A GROUNDLESS CHARGE.
What There ta In the Arrest or Itev. Mr.
Keck tor Stealing n rimlroti.
Iter. Tronic .. Mitchell, presiding eh'ir
of this M. E. district of the Cincinnati con
fertnee, and Kev. John Pearson, pastor of
the Central M. E. church, went to Cedar
ville and Xeuia yesterdav to investigate the
case of Kev. Mr. Keck, pastor of the M. E.
church at Cedarville, who stauds accused
of the distressing charge of having stolen a
tlatiron from the hardware store of Josi.ua
Wolf, at Xema, several days ao. The
committee gave the case a sweeping Inves
tigation, and everything points to the inno
cence of the accused ami tho fact that Mr.
Wolf has gotten himself into trouble.
The facts, as the committee found them.
seemed to be about as follows. jr. Keck
bought quite a large bill of gois from Mr.
Wolf a base burner an 1 other articles
but purchased a cook stove eNew here, as
none of Mr. Wolfs suited him. It annoyed
the latter to lose the sale and he vv as rather
Indignant about it Some da) slater Mr.
Keck purchased a water-bucket of Mr.
Wolf, paid for it and left it in the store to
be called for later. Sometime afterwards
he was in Xenia with his wife, who had
me inw title advised him to exchange the
wa'er bucket for a larger one, and also to'd
him to purchase a flat-iron for family use.
Mrs. Keck sat In the carriage a short dis
tance away while her husband went
to the store, exchanged the bucket
and started to leave. As he passed
out he remembered the flat iron,
and seeing one on the counter, paused
to examine it. He finally concluded that
he would show it to his wife and let her se
lect one if she liked, and accordingly verv
Innocently and naturally laid it in the water
bucket on his arm. Intending to return in a
moment and pay for it or bring back the
iron. The act was just what ninety-nine
men In a hundred might have done under
similar circumstances. Five minutes later,
the minister was under arrest for stealing a
flat-iron. He is prostrated with the shame
of the arrest but intends to stand trial when
ha recovers from a low fever that has now
laid hold on him.
Andy Xeilaud, who was arrested a few
days ago for the murder of Dennis Ma
honey, the I. B. A W. target man. was
dismissed this afternoon. It being thought
that a e could not be made against him.
