COUNTY DEMOCRATS VICTOEIOUS
Election day came and went bringing results surprising to all, both in regard
to the stato ticket as well as that of the county, although results in the latter
probably caused the least surprise, it having been quito generally conceded that
the Democratic nominees would all run well and that many, if not all, would be
elected. Of course the outcome proves this general feeling to have been well
founded. The Democratic ticket was an unusually strong one, made up of men
of common sense, of sterling integrity and withal popular with the people of
the county. Also it may be stated this was largely so with the candidates of
the other parties. But the party and the people, of the eounty as a whole may
rest assured that they have elected to office a group of men that will be strictly,
on the job during their tenure, and men who "are capable to the fullest degree.
The Sentinel extends its heartiest congratulations to the successful candidates
and to the voterB who so sensibly elected them. . . . ..
Kindig second, ; and Ralph Krabill
third.".' :,
County Supt C. E. Jenki was also
present and spoke on the educational
value of agriculture teaching.
An excellent example of the value
of centralized schools is furnished by
Homer township, and the people of
that district feel a just pride in their
splendid school system. Each teacher
has but two grades to handle, instead
of eight, as in district schools, and
correspondingly better work can be
done. The pupils are brought to
school in vans and arrive dry and
warm even in bad weather.
Another advantage of centraliza
tion lies in the fact that better super
vision is possible where all schools are
brought together in one building, in-
-tead of being scattered to all corners
of the township. ,,
No better public schools are to be
had anywhere than those of the cen
tralized township schools under such
supervision as is furnished in Homer,
Granger, Litchfield, LeRoy and. other
townships of Medina county.

While joyful over the great Democratic victory of Tuesday when all but
two of the nominees were elected to office, we cannot but express our keen
disappointment in the defeat of Mr. Dana F. Reynolds for the office of State
Kepresentative and Mr. Ganyard for surveyor. So far as integrity is concerned,
Mr. Shank, who was elected, is undoubtedly the equal of Mr. Reynolds. Both
are recognized as men of good common sense and moral worth. But we are firm
in the belief that Mr. Reynolds is superior in the other peculiar qualities that
one ought to possess who essays to represent a large constituency and take an
aggressive, intelligent and dignified part in the weighty deliberations of so
important body of men as the legislature of Ohio. Mr. Shank has been elected
and we wish him full measure of success in his work. We may have misjudged
himT Mr. Ganyard 's ability and integrity also is beyond reproach. It is prob
able that his defeat largely may be attributed to the fact of his having had the
office before.
In the defeat of Hon. Ellsworth R. Bathrick for Congress the Sentinel
believes the voters were in error. We make this statement bcause of what we
Jorsoiially know of the valued service that Mr. Bathrick has rendered his constit
uents and the people generally during the two terms of his incumbency, and
because we cannot help but feel that a Democrat should sit in Congress from
this district while President Wilson holds the reins of government. To crippl l
in the slightest degree this great and good man whose work members of all
parties applaud, we are unable to regardr as anything other than a mistake. It
is possible, however, that those gentlemen who shall replace Democrats are so
broad-minded that they will not permit partisanship to sway them from a
generous support of the president in his wise efforts to serve his people uniformly
and well.

Lyman Whitney Strong, son of L.
W.' and Ruth M strong, was born in
Seville, O., Sept. 22, 1849, and died
Oct. 10, 1914, aged 65 years and 18
days. ' .: -
He was married to Harriet Martin
Nov. 14, 1872, To this union were
born three children, one son, Frank
A., and two daughters, Lavinea and
Hattie E., who died Dec. 24, 1894,
With the exception of a year spent in
Seville, he has lived his entire mar
ried life of nearly 42 years in this
home. During this period he was
identified with the local Grange for
20 years, beinsr one of its charter
members, co-operating and aiding in
its various activities as long as he
was able.
Although a lifelong and consistant
Republican in politics, he placed pat
riotism above politics, attested by the
fact that he was elected and served
with efficiency as Township clerk for
a term of over 25 years.
At the age of 15 he united with the
!ongregational church of Seville
after the dissolution of which he
transformed his membership to the
Methodist church, of which he was a
member at th e time of his death.
He is survived by his widow and
ion Frank of Uhippewa Lake and
daughter, Mrs. Fred Taylor of Se
ville, and by four grand children, An
drew, Allen, Lyman and Hellen Tay
lor, and also by two remaining bro
thers, T. D. Strong of Bowling Green
O., and Rev. Sydney Strong of Seattle
Wash. f
In his death the home has lost a
loving and . indulgent husband ahd
father, -the community a trusted, char
itable and faithful neighbor and
friend, and the state an 'unselfish
patriot. ' '
Two ways have been provided by
the state for raising money with
whicn to improve roads making a
direct levy cr issuing bonds. The
former is the slower process, for the
reason that the levy made for five
years, payable semi-annually. Un-
ess the district has an exceedingly
i .' 1 1 - - AT- - 1.1-

coming is very small. In fact, there
is hardly a district outside of a large
taxable county or thestate which
would be recompensed in levying a
direct tax.
The power to issue bonds for road
improvements is more or less a God
send, especially to townships and
smaller counties. Townships may is
sue bonds, if favorablyacted upon by
the people at the polls, to the extent
of three per cent of its tax duplicate.
By doing this the money is gotten in?.
to the road fund directly without der
ay, and in the largest 1 possible
amount. The only objection ever
raised against the' issuance of . bonds
is that the Interest on the principal
must bemet in addition. But it must
be borne in mini that where the di
rect levy will not produce available
funds large enough to cope with the
road problems, the people must, in
the meantime, pay the "mud tax". In
wear and tare, inconvenience, misfor
tune, hazardous risks and the general
conditions of roads inimical to the
best interests of the people who must
travel the highway, the tax payer goes
down into his pocket for more money
than the interest he pays on these
bonds. The sooner the road is. im
proved the quicker the user has the,
assurance of safe travel, and just as
30on as the road is constructed that
soon the lands increase in value.
The issuance of bonds is especially
advisable in townships where roads
are to be improved on the edges. It
must be borne in mind that a whole
district is benefitted by the improve'
ment of roads and that the longer
the delay in getting at the improve
ment. that much longer progress is
retarded. No sooner are bonds is
sued than themoney is in. the fund
and thecontract can be let. If a
direct levy is. resorted to, one must
wait until the fund has grown to
such an amount that the contract can
be taken care off. ; .
All in all, the issuance of bonds pay
in the long run. It makes for dis
patch. The taxpayer really pays
nothing for interest on the bonds for
the reason that he himself is paid in
terest on the funds in bank. Tax lev
ies are paid semi-annually, where in
torent coupons on bonds are usually
paid annually. .
