Never has there been so general a dis
gust felt for mixed caucuses, as at the late
election. No one appears pleased, and the
declaration of dissatisfaotion is general,
and of a determination never to go into
any other than a straight party nomina
tion. "Republican citizens caucuses.
and "Democratic citizens' caucuses" are a
vexation and disappointment. The 'senti
ment is not against selecting, to some ex
tent, good men from either party, but let
them be selected by caucus regularly and
strictly partesan. This is a good indica
tion that craft and finessing in mixing is
not to be countenanced so generally as in
days past. ' 1 ' '

This allotittion is nlacvd at the close
of my first article, the one entitled Teach

the names altai-lied, but they are neJcclcd
as representative names of teachers in the

honesty In the districts where they rfwidc.
1 feet Uial with the loregolng this liiaturr
might safely be left to the Judgment of
your readers, but the article of Kxauiiner
seems to Invite a review, it is inn anoiner
proof that the person hit w ill cry out. I
made a statement of facts charging no one
Willi the blame. Examiner replies. His
effort is put forth ostensibly In fx half of
the Teachers, but It is evident to the care
fill reader that it Is Intended as a shield to
the examiners. I would remind Examin
er that the hirtiest teachers of this county
need no defense as they have been in noway
attacked. Were they atuu ked, llw-y would
be found abundantly able to lake care of
themselves. They lack neither the spirit,
nor the ability for their own delense.
Since then it is not the honest teachers
and is professedly not the examiners
whom his article defends, we are left to
suppose that Examiner puts himself forth
as the champion of the dishonest teachers
and evil dis-rs. It Is only the known
character of Examiner, which precludes
No one more highly respects the honest
teachers of this county than I do, and It is
hard to see by what lair course of reason
ing Examiner arrives at the conclusion,
that because there are evil persons in a
profession, it is a disgrace for an honest
Iierson to belong to It.
f.xaminer savs, "It Is nitncult to under
stand how a person with any reputation
of being a lady or gentleman could stoop
to practice" the first example which I
gave of the manner in which fraud is car
ried out. Yet in Die very next sentence he
admits that instances of this class have
come to the knowledge of the Board. In
regard to the Iniastcd watchfulness of the
Examiner, I will but say here that quite
as often as otherwise during examination
hours there is but one examiner in the
room, and he apparently occupied with
work at his desk. While I decline to act
as detective and prosecutor before the
Board, I yet feel at liberty to make a pub
lie statement of facts. If there is but one
honorable way of making public fraudu
lent proceeding and that by giving names
of those practicingthem, I would respect
fully suggest that Examiner take the int
tiative bv irivine the names of those whom
he says hive been rejected by cause of
communication, and not leave the state
ment in such form that according to his
view of the case it must cast a slur upon
the large class who have been rejected fpr
In closing this article I will say tbe
statements which I have published are not
made through any ill w ill toward the Ex
aminers, but because of my interest in our
common seuoois snn irom my position as

charged Stoll with unlawfully suffering a

McCoy took part. The week following
the publication Mr. Charles ii. McCoy
called my attention lo the article and stated
that some ot the readers of the Tslk

ferred to, and intimated that an explana

be acceptable. I admitted the justice ot

increase of population, ftc. The audience
room Is found to be rather larger than the
present demand for space. The question,
therefore, is, how shall it bo filled. A
writer in the Smtinel of Saturday last,
shows himself equal to the emergency, and
suggests "It maybe necessary1 for increas
ed exertion on the part of our good citi
zens to help swell the population to meet
the requirement ot the new town hall!"
Care should be taken in following out this
recommendation, to avoid overdoing this
matter, as it should not be pushed beyond
the limits of legitimacy, as the plans for
providing for the waifs at the county
house might prove iusufficieni, and the In
firmary fathers flud their hands more than
Sheriff's Sales. The Chillicothe Ad
vertiser says :
Mr. Williams, the colored Representa
tive at Columbus, has introduced a bill
that will commend itself to the good ludg.
ment of every disinterested citizen that
is, every one who is not a beneficiary un
der theold law. His .bill relates to the
printingof Sheriff' sales, l uder the law
as it now stands, the Sheriff has absolute
control of that kind of advertising. He
can give the Diluting to whatever English
miner he pleases, in the county, no mat
ter what the circulation; neither is he re
quired to take into account whether
not the paper so favored Is liable to fall
into to tiie nanus oi any oi uie parties con
ccrned. No matter w hat kind of arrange,
ment Uie plaintiff or dct'cmlunl might be
able to make w ith the publishers, with the
view of saving costs, li the Sheriff' happens
to be a mule, he can disregard all ap;eal8.
Under the old law the Sheriff can, if
disposed, set up a Job with the publisher
and divide the foes and profits of extra
stretching of advertisements.
"Williams' bill strikes riijlit at the root
of the great evil, by providing that when
the plaintiff fails to designate in what
newspaper of gcnerul circulation the ad
vertisement of a judicial sale shall appear,
within five days, the defendant may desig
nate such newspaper. It a loo provides
that the printers fee shall be seven cents
per line, agate measurement, and lour
cents per line fox each subsequent inser
We do not quite see th propriety
this county of taking the advertising out
of the Sheriffs hands, on the ground
Btubborn ness, or peculation, for our
sheriff is not open to any charge under
either of these heads. The attorneys
the most part are allowed to direct where
the sales of their clients shall go. If they
to not they are sent pi the ouia rs nearest
he lis alities where the property lies, and
the sale shall have the largest publicity'
IntlKsc renixTta, no legislation seems
necessary for the present, at least. As to
the rate of romHTitioTi, Mr. Williams'
bill Is an Improvement npon Ihe present
one. The rates arc reduced lo a fairer, and
quite reasonable range. The range of the
resent law is too high. Fixing the fees
by the line, we do not like as well aa by
the sonare, and It is no morn explicit,
llils may be simplified by putting the
square at 75 cents fo: the first insertion
and 50 cents for every aulmeqiicnt one, and
40 cents for making oath to the certificate.
Will not our colemporjries give their
views In the mutter, now that the subject
s up, and endeavor to settle iqion aouie
thing fair and just.
