llavcnna, Wednesday, March O, 1893. Hon. "William L. "Wilson, the distin guished (but not as Republican niadheads im potently desired.extiniiuished,) statesman of West Virginia, has been tendered and accepted the office of Post Master General, in place of Mr. Bissell, resigned. ' - The Anti-Saloon League of Ohio have in troduced another feature into Buckeye poli tics, that bids fair to cause considerable com motion in more than one community in the State. It is not a movement in the iuterests of any particular party, or to form a new one, but simply to unite the moral sentiment of the voters in all parties against the saloon, each individual being entirely free toaffiliate with any party, the general principles ol which are niobt acceptable to him. The most important part of the plan is a pledge, sub mitted for the signature of every voter, b) which he binds himself to support none bui men known to be opposed to the saloons. The platform of the federation pledges tin member to the laws and constitution of tht Slate, and contains also this clause, which will explain clearly in a nut shell the objeci of the organization: " We will always aim to give our voles IN THE PKIMAKYCAUCUShb and at the polls, for the candidates to seivt as officers in Ohio, who are known to be op ponents to the saloon." It is the intention to cover the entire State The movement is undertaken under tlu auspices of the Good Government department of the Anti-Saloon League. Wilson S. Bissell, Post Master General, tendered his resignation to President Cleve land, last Wednesday afternoon, to be ac cepted on the appointment of his successor. The demands of his professional work be came so great as to necessitate his return to the practice of law in Buffalo. He said, emphatically, that all rumors 01 a disagreement between the President ano any members of his Cabinet are wholly uu true, as there never was a more harmoniout Cabinet than the present one. He expresses a sincere regret over the impending separa tion a regret equally shared by the Presi dent and the colleagues of the retiringofficial As Mr. Bissell said, the members of tht Cabinet are a unit in support of the Presideui on every public question. The persisteni falsifying of Republican busy-mouths ii. maintaining an imaginary disturbance ii the Administration household, is but anoth er exhibition of the absolute lack of even i decent respect for ordinary truth prevailing among the leaders of this "Rich Man's Club," alias the Republican party. i t m r Congkess adjourned Monday noon, anc. the 53rd body of Federal law makers is thing of the past. . Among the features of this remarkabl. Congress was a Sunday session. Since th fourth of December these servants of th. people have been busy with several impor lant measures, the most momentous of whicl wus the proposed financial legislation. Bui owing to difficulties originating with indi vidual differences on this question, and ii no way to be accounted a partisan contest no changes were made, as so wisely recom mended by President Cleveland. Among other unsuccessful measures, wen the bill to establish a uniform system ol bankruptcy and the anti option bill. The Nicaraugua canal project also failed U reach the President. The appropriations for the support of thi Government constituted a very important and very large part of the business transact ed. A' psnsion bill was enacted by whicl non-residents not citizens of this country shall be ineligible for pensions except fo. actual disabilities incurred in the service and fixing the lowest rate of pension at sii dollars a month. The mos$ important of the Senate bill which faiied to pass the House, were a join resolution for an inquiry into the practica bility of deep water ways between the Oceai -and the great lakes, and the bill for tht regulation of steam vessels. The Senate elected Messrs. Teller, Jontt and Daniel as its representatives in the Na tional Monetary Conference. The Hous. elected Speaker Crisp as one of its represent atives. THE APPROPRIATIONS. The following figures show approximate the total appropriations made during th session of Congress just closed: Agricul tural, $3,303,700; Army, $33,252,608; Diplo matic and Consular, $1,575,073; District o Columbia, ?5,916,533 ; Fortifications, $1,904 557; Indian, 7,976,948; Military Academy $424,261; Pensions, $141,381,570; Postoffict 189,545,997 ; General Deficiency, $8,600,000 Sundry Civil, $47,140,000 ; urgent Deficient bills passed early in the session, $2,357,2321 Legislative, Executive ana J uaiciai, 000; . -Vaval.S29.100.000U: mmaneui auuu al i i 5 nrs n.nfi M iscellaneous, $50,000.

The pel centage of deaths and injuries fron accidents among miners is enormously high and the risk they undergo daily, ihat the worlr may be supplied with fuel for home and won shop, is a sacrifice of safety that should be re warded with the highest wage rate and the pro found gratitude of those whp too often thoughi lessly enjoy the results of their exhausting and dangerous toil. A more rigid system of Governmental contro and inspection of mines and their operation, i: a matter that presses for early attention. Th Nation cannot afford, either morally, politicals or materially, to provide indifferent or inade quate protection to so large a body of so usefu citizens. There is reason in aU things, and : little kindly attention to the common dictate f .Puin and humanity, would evidence genu ine statesmanship, and obviate much futuie trouble. WASHINGTON IjKTTEK. From Our Regular Correspondent. Washington, D. C, March 1, 1S95. vi President Stevenson is as mild-man nered a gentleman as ever presided over tht t- sntP hut he this week demonstrates to the Senate, as well as to the public, that a wide eulf between mildness and weakness. When the excitement, which has been a marked feature in the Senate all the wppIt. culminated in the greatest uproar ever remembered to have been seen on the floor of the Senate, brought on by the attempt to prevent the Gorman amendment, authorizing he Secretary of the Treasury to issue 3 per cent, loan certificates whenever ready money was needed, being laid before the Senate, he nri1rpil himself equal to the occasion, Dy or dering the Sergeant-at-arms to restore order, although he must have seen from the faces of the older Senators that he was trampling upon tradition and dignity by so doing. He even went further, by refusing to allow bus iness to be resumed until perfect order was restored, and then to add force to the object lesson in good manners that he was giving to unruly Senators, he directed the Sergeant at-Arms to insist upon order being main tained and to place a sufficient number of assistants upon the floor toenforce the order. Then when you might have heard a pin drop the Vice President calmly said : " The Sen ator from Maryland will now proceed." Af terwards the Gorman amendment was with drawn to prevent the Sundry Civil appropri ation bill being talked to death. New stories of the reign of Czar Reed over the House are scarce, but Representative Crain, of Texas, tells one that is new, at least in Washington. He says the following conversation occurred in one of the House Galleries while Mr. Reed was speaker, be tween a precocious boy and his father who had brought him to the Capitol to see Con gress : Boy" Who are all those men down there writing and reading newspapers ?" . Father " Those are the speakers of the House of Representatives, my son." Boy " Who is that great big fat man in the chair under the American flag ?" Father " that, my son, is the House of Representatives." SeuatorBrice has been unmercifully guyed for attempting to secure an appropriation from Congress of $100,000 for experimenting in aerial machines, but the Senator insists that the wheels in his head haven't slipped any cogs, and further, that the government ought to assist in hastening the era of aerial navigation, which is bound to come sooner or later. Representative Bailey, of Texas, is as good a silver man ae Representative Bryan, of Nebraska, but he declines to sign the letter addressed to the public, which Mr. Bryan is circulating among democratic members, and he gives his reasons for declining as follows: Bryan's idea leans more to what is expedi ent and further from what isdemocratic than I want to go. It is his desire to pronounce solely for free silver, 16 to 1, and stop. Not a word of tariff, nothing of State banks. No announcement of any other principles of government which should guide a party. A party cannot succeed with naught but silver. iJan cannot live by bread alone. Bryan's idea is practically only for a day. He be- leves in fusing all the silver forces, demo cratic, republican and popalist. I believe m oeing a democrat and having a party of dem ocrats. If populists and republicans aiming jX free silver can act with us, I would be .imong the first to welcome them. Butl can't surrender my party faith to gain temporary tid. It might do for the present, but would jvaste the party and wreck the country in the tUture. I look on populism as an equal public threat with republicanism. Carry re publican doctrines to their ultimate working jut, and a few men would own all the prop erty of the country, and the rest would be oeggars. Carry populism to its utmost ex pression and nobody would have property X all. I'm agairst both." The House has had time to kill this week, vhile waiting for the Senate to act on the ippropriation bills. It passed the bill au thorizing an arbitration commission to settle lisputes between interstate common carriers ind their employes, and a number of unim portant measures. President Cleveland made a hit in choos ing a successor to Postmaster General Bis sell, who retired this week. CHAItLESTOVYX. March 4, 1895. The M. E.

The people to try our Adamant for repairing walls, ceilings, &c, Lime, Cement, Sewer Pipe, Hard and Soft Coal, Coke, &c. A. H. HixE & Co. Phone 33, Rev. George II. Vibbeet, of Massachu setts, talked to a large audience, Tuesday night of last week, in the Disciple Church. After a description of a great meeting of the United Kingdom Alliance in Manchester, Englaud, planning for temperance because the people were "moyed by profound con cern" at the evils of intemperance, Mr. Vibbert urged that there is a division in ev ery community, the majority indifferent and inactive, though they acknowledge that " Intemperance is au evil," and a few who are troubled and concerned, and therefore active and vigilant. The evils are so tre mendous that all men ought to be troubled. 1. The drain upon material resources. $1,200,000,000 in the U. S., $50,000,000 in Ohio, $50,000 in Ravenna, worse than wasted, for drink ! A dollar, all money is a'sacred trust, to be used, not for selfish and personal gratifica tion, but for development of manhood and womanhood for home and good learning, and books, and art, and music, and to lift souls heavenward. Expenditure for liquor and tobacco is uotouly wasteful, it is wicked. 2. 100,000 men die drunkards each year; 100,000 women's hearts ache, and bleed, and break. 2; 0,000 or 300,000 children are de prived of food and clothing and home peace. We ought to hate the curse, and destroy it. This is a merger and imperfect resume of aa address which Mr. Vibbert hoped would be useful and inspiring. The lecture Wednesday night in the Dis ciple Church was heard by a good audience. The theme was, " What shall we do for the Drinker?" ' The questions which have permanent im portance for the wisest and best people are social questions. What can be done for the poor, the criminal, the suffering, the lost? If we are of heathenish spirit, we will not care ; if we are of Christian spirit, we shall be deeply concerned for answer to " What shall we do for the drinker?" 1. The old-fashioned, hard. Christian method of personal persuasion and influence. Christ will accept no substitutes. He wants more than talk, and money, and prayer; He wants us. The drinker feels that no man cares for him. He needs a kindly hand.and to feel the beating of a loving heart. 2.. Every church should have a temne.r- ance committee of tender-hearted, sensible men and women, whose dutv it is to warn the drinker, persuade the drunkard, carry help and healing to the drunkard's familv. and stir the community to profound interest in ine temperance reform. Thev must use good judgment, tact, discretion, or they will lose tneir man. 3. We must set the example of total ab Stinence. The moderate drinker's examnl is narmtul as an influence helDinar to make arinkers and drunkards. How can a Chria tian sing "Am I a Soldier of the Cross." and yet De unwilling to give up liquor and tobac co, tor the sake of a weaker brother? 4. We must open counter attractions tn the saloon. Where can a lonelv'homesir.k young man go to spend his evenings? No Y. M. C. A. parlors, no reading-room or public library, but ten saloons to lure him wim warmth and light, and cheer and com panionship! It is wonderful that so few young men go to the bad. It would be profit able for business men to keep onen attract ive, cleanly rooms for the young people and strangers. The Good Samaritan was wnaihlo Wo would not only help the wounded man, but if the robber's victims were numerous, he would go with his neighbors and clear the road or robbers ! We must shut the saloons, remove the temptations, and so make the street safe. We must prevent the making of drinkers and drunkards. Thursday night, in the Methodist Church, to the largest audience of the week, Mr. Vib bert spoke on 'IDo saloons pay? Ought a Christian community to tolerate saloons?" There are low, disreputable, and high-toned, respectable saloons. The more attractive and beautiful, the more dangerous, as they attract respectable young men who may be gin to drink amid agreeable surroundings but who would never learn to drink if they could get liquor only in low saloons. Sa loons do not pay the drinker. His blood is poisoned by the liquor, and his powers of resistance to disease, and shock, and acci dent, and to extreme heat and cold, are lea- sened and destroyed. The death rate of total abstainers is from seventeen to twenty-nine per cent lower than that of moderate drink ers. Saloons do not pay a community. The saloon keeper collects the taxes. For every dollar had in tax or license fees, it costs the community about twenty -onedollars, accord ing to Carroll D. Wright, the eminent statis tician. The $50,000 which saloons get in Ravenna, yearly, if properly used would go to farmer and trader. The saloon is the enemy of all legitimate business. The saloon does not benefit the Home. All the essential foundations of a well ordered and permanent home life, industry, economy love, religion, are threatened, rotted, des troyed by drink. No community bhould tolerate the saloon All people should hate it, pray against it work against it, vote against it. Friday night, at the TJniversalist Church. fewer people gathered, but a larger propor- tion of men. The attention was intense, and the influence must have been profound, and will be wide-spreading. Mr. Vibbert continued his arraignment of the saloon. 1. It harms the saloon keeper. In the long run, liquor is not profitable in money Liquor sellers hy'e less property to leave to their families than any other class of busi ness men. God has ordained that no busi ness harmful to His children can be finan cially prosperous. That is the rule, though there are apparent exceptions. Liquor selling shortens life of liquor sell ers. Their death rate in Great Britain is higher than the average death rate. Twenty seven insurance companies refuse to insure the lives of saloon keepers. The risks are too great. The saloon keeper's character is impaired. He cannot keep a tender, a gen erous, a neighborly, a fraternal heart in his breast. Liquor selling is more demoralizing to the character than liquor drinking. Saloons lower the price of real estate near them for the best business and home purpos es. Houses next saloons will not rent or sell for as much for homes as those away from saloons. No liquor seller who rightly re gards his family .wants to live near a saloon Saloons take money from those who do not own it. Money belongs not only to the man, but to his wife and children, and home. He has no right to spend their mon ey for his own selfish, sensual desires. Saloons are always the enemies of homes All nice and loving women drink the saloon influence. Good women who so love their homes, have a right to demand that husband: and fathers and sons shall, for the home'i sake, vote to shut the saloons. Heaven hasten the day when men, and women, too, may vote to protect their homes from their worst enemy ! Saturday evening, in the Universalist Church Mr. Vibbert considered the question, What has been done in the temperance reform ? He sta ted many facts about the drink habit 50 to 150 years ago. Then it was customary for all peo pie to use intoxicating beverages. Such wert used by ministers as well as the laity, and ir homes as well as on public occasions ; used a dedication of churches, ordination and installa tion of pastors, and at funerals and weddings Many serious and fatal diseases resulted from this general use of intoxicants. A great change has been effected in 50 years Now a large per cent of people are total abstain ers. In nearly all Protestant Churches no min ister would be tolerated who would drink even mo lerately. Now people are ashamed to sell intoxicants as they do groceries, with clear win dows. '1 hey want screens to hide their shame ful practice. Now temperance sentiment is rapidly gaming, and the motto of a large army is, " the saloon must go."

Rev. Vibbert gave a characteristic address , speaking with the dignity and power of moral authority, and the unanswerable expositions of scientific analysis. Among many valuable statements was the one pointing out a great danger to a multitude of young men in being sent out into the world without any pronounced convictions on the temperance question. He also called attention to the fact of the best physiologists ranking al cohol with other powerful drugs to be used only as poisons are used. He defined the word temperance as being applicable only to useful and harmless things, saying that the use of a hurtful, evil substance was morally prohibited to any human being in any degree of indulgence. We do not talk about the " temperate " use of poisons The way to achieve National temperance is for tem perance people to think, talk, act, and VOTE that way. .t Council Proceedings. Council held its regular session Monday eve ning. Pay ordinance was passed. Waterworks report was as follows : Amount on band February I, - - J437 50 Receipts lor February, ... 377 60 Receipts from sale of Extension Bonds 5 zoo 00 Total with balance, Disbursements, $6020 13 85a 21 Balance, March i, $5167 92 Action on report deterred to next meeting : Committee appointed to confer with Electric Light Co. reported that the Company wanted $So 00 for the same street lighting service. Council is not willing to give more than it is paying, and authorized committee to renew 1894 contract for another year, with provision for proper cleaning of lamps, &c. The Mayor reported that on examination of the statutes, the only authority that could com pel railroad companies to place gates at high way crossings lies with the State Commissioner of Kailroads.whose powers are unlimited within reasonable bounds, and are exclusive. Mayor Cole has written him, and upon the return ol that official to Columbus, he will probably come to Ravenna and make personal investigation of the matter. The American Telephone Co. asked for a franchise, but although favorably impressed with the new Co., Council deferred action until the latter had advanced its material construction some. Council accepted the dedication of Pratt St extension south of Oak street. Mr. Thompson called attention to the neces sity of immediate sidewalk repairs about town , saying there were many places dangerous to pedestrians. - In this connection a company was mentioned that would furnish a good, servicea ble nagging at 9 to 11 cents per foot, on the installment plan. Mayor Cole seemed to have the figures to sustain his opinion formerly expressed, that the Electric Light Co- had made a good profit dur ing 1894 about 8 per cent on its original in vestment, equal to 13H per cent on what a similar plant could be built for now.

Often she is troubled with backache, or a tender spine, with a bearing down weight in the abdomen, or at periods she may be irregular, or suffer extreme pain from functional derangements. Dr. Pierce, chief consulting physician to the Invalids' Hotel and Surgical Institute, of Buffalo, N. Y., in his long and active experi ence, met many cases of this kind, for which he used a prescription which was found to cure such difficulties permanently in ninety eight per cent, of all cases. Having proven so successful, Dr. Pierce put his " Favorite Prescription " on the market, and it is to-day sold more largely than any other medicine for the ills of woman. For all functional derangements, displace ments, ulceration, inflammation, and the catarrhal drain from the lining membranes of the special internal organs of women, Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription reaches the origin of the trouble, and corrects it, Mrs. Mary Cbim, of Frankfort, Franklin Co., lit., writes: A lew years ago I took cold, which resulted in female trouble, and affected my whole system.

Makch 4, 1895 : The Farmers' Club met at the home of Wm. Brockett, on last Satur- 'T I. . queauon ior discussion was "Amusements." This brought out a full attendance and much interest was manifest ed. several of the ladies present took part in the discussion. All agreed that the young as well as the old need amusements. There was some disagreement as to what const! tutes innocent and DroDer amnspmpnt mmo minting that the dauce, if properly conduct ed, won an luuocem ano proper amusement, while others held that dancing was a fruitful source of much evil,! and should not be in' dulged in or countenanced, from the fact of this tendency to evil. While it might not be wrong for good people to dance, the ex ample would be bad and serve as an excuse for the Club dance and promiscuous dancing That it was better for good people to avoid the very appearance of evil. Card playin and progressive euchre came in for a full snare oi criticism, uard playing as an amusement did not have any very zealous advocates. Base Ball and football came in for a full share of talk. There may be great amusement in these games, if the reports be true of the number of black eyes, broken noses and barked shins are correctly report ed, but the older members of the Club seemed to be thankful that these amusements were not popular when they were young. I he old fashioned spelling school and appl paring bees were good enough for them, but we suppose the young bloods need borne thing more exciting. To those who looked upon amusements from a religious stand point, card playing and dancing were con demned, from the fact that they had a tend ency to supplant and drive out the highe: and spiritual feelings that a community that indulged to any great extent in these were not noted for their zeal in christian work. A good live earnest Christian En deavor Society connected with a Church would do more good in community than all the dancing or euchre parties that ever ex isted. The next Club will be on the first Saturday in April, at the residence of Georgi Brockett. Many of the people of town are afflicted with grip and colds.

We have a female dentist in town and those who have patronized the lady, speak in highest praise of the work done. Harry Vincent has gone to Beaver Falls, where he has a position in a commission house. Mrs. Ellis and Mrs. Bancroft entertained the Seniors at the home of the former, last Thursday evening. At the last session of the " State Oratorical Association," Mr. E. E. Snoddy, of Hiram College, was elected president. An honor most worthily bestowed. A general demoralization prevails among the dairy cows, at this time, and many calves have been lost. There are many theories as to the cause, but none 6eems to bear investi gation. We doff our hat to Esq. Beatty, who fined a scamp ten dollars for shooting a robin. We wish a full grown workhouse sentence might be imposed on all such offenders. And we wish our legislators might have backbone enough to make it unlawful to kill any bird at any time. A young man named Shupe, a student, whose home is in Columbus, went to Gar rettsville Saturday and came back in a rous ing state of maniacal hilarity, more definite ly known as the entire northeast quarter of a drunk. Last Wednesday was grand rally day, to boom the proposed new building. Three meetings were held and stirring speeches made by home and foreign talent. Twelve thousand dollars was pledged, of which Messrs. Zollars, Paige, Hertzog, Ferguson fc Son, White Brothers sons of Congressman White, of Cleveland and Mrs. L. J. Millei pledged $500 each; the Seniors pledged $2,560; the freshmen $2,127; the Sophmores $1,130, the Juniors $1,400; the Literary $900, and tht Senior Preps $590. The balance was sub scribed by individuals, running from $25 to $300. It is claimed now that a building cost ing in the neighborhood of $25,000 is assured. That a larger building is a necessity was demonstrated last Friday evening, when tht large auditorium of the Church was not suf ficient to accommodate the large audience gathered to witness the excellent entertain ment of the Junior Class, which presented a most entertaining and amusing program : Invocation.

There is no business or avocation, if faith fully followed, but claims the larger share of the time of the one engaged in the partic ular pursuit. But while every useful life is a busy one, every busy life necessarily is not a useful one. Faithful devotion to au hon orable calling and conscientious endeavor to master its requirements, will crown any life with a diadem richer than regal gem or roy al ruby. Every true toiler, however, works with reference to the comfort and betterment of his fellow-man, exalting that above mere personal gain ; and no matter how assiduous the labor or untiring the zeal, unless aggran dizement and enrichment of self be subordi nate to the fundamental obligations embod ied in the code of higher humanity, such a record will be far from satisfying the ques tionings of an alert conscience when the final reckoning comes. "Seek ye first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added onto you," is of the highest essence of moral philosophy, and rightfully viewed, is of axiomatic truthfulness.
