For Secretary ol State, ' JAMES. S. RQBINSON, ; Of Hardin county. For Judge of the Bupremo Court,, ; W.W.JOHNSON, Of Lawrence county. For Member of tbe Board of Public Works, , C. A. FLICK1NQER. Of Defiance county. Misplaced Sympathy. The police of our towns and cities, who are exposed to the dangers result ing from their cTort to protect our property and lives from the low and criminal ; classes, whose base and ' revengeful passions they must often contend against single handed, are on titiml to our utmost consideration and gratitude. A soldier fight lng for his country does not more truly than they, ofTer his life as a defense for his fellows, and statis tics show that tbe risks taken are scarcely Inferior. He should not how ever be expected to take the unnecess ary risk to person and life In contests with tbe low and vicious and criminal, especially, when, Infuriated by drink, they attempt to do violence, In revenge for fancied grelvanoes. We would by no means Justify an oflloer in using unnecessary severity or cruelty, but the presumption should always be in lavor " nfihe officer and again at the criminal, mhnm ha atteroDts to arrest. We are aware that cases are not wanting where the charge has been Justly made, but these aro the exception ana not ine ruin. The fact that an officer In a hand to hand fight, with one or more criminals, made Irresponsible by arm-, gives, la the excitement, a harder blow .ban be Intended, or in me uaraness struck In a more vunerable part tluu he expected, Is not a good and sufficient reason for condemning (aim. The pre sumption of Innocence on the part o the criminal and of guilt on the part of tbe officer Is not Just, and we are glad to think It Is very unusual. In a few . instances only, In the history of Wel lington, has there been shown a dispo sition to condemn the officer and give sympathy to the law-breaker, and tills, by a very few Individuals. That the disorderly, and rowdy, and criminal rlwmes should sympathize with each other would bo but natural, but by what strange perversity of human na ture, intelligent, high-minded citizens are able to put faith In the statements of men, for many years, notorious for (Its of drunieness, and for quarrel someness, sod brutality while In this condition ; who do not hesitate at such times to openly threaton the lives of those who have done them some fancied injury, and the victims of whose assaults are not few or unknown, Is an anomaly strange and unaccounta ble. Our charity Is not sufficient to enable us to attribute It to spontaneous natural eoodness. to sympathy for the Innocent victims of Injustice, and yet we dislike to harge any selfish or unworthy motive. Each one will put his own Interpretation o such exhlbl. Jons f common Interest and sympathy, ut if they are to become at all general, ,he good people ol Wellington, will need to make speedy preperatlon to migrate, for with such encouragement a law breakers to regard thomselves he Injured Innocent, this would not long be afe place for decent people o live. We very much mistake the diaracter and temper of our people, or ' uch sentimental softness In favor of a Irunken roanlsc, who springe upon an . officer In tbe dark, when he Is alieady at ... 1 1 A ... annlliB. lanuicapea aiwiujiunn w " iriminal In limbo, will meet with small incooragomeot, and anyone of the ' iriminal class, or their transient friends itlemptlng to worry an officer engaged n the legitimate discharge of bis duties 111 find that be has undertaken a very innleasant aud unprofitable Job.

The Vi Festival at Cleveland. ,' Th Cleveland .Vocal Boolety had a thoroughly drilled chorus for tbe eon ' oorUof this Festival, of one' hundred and sixty ladles and one hundred gen tlemen, and over fifty musicians la the orchestra. If 1st Wrlgbt was again tbe piano and organ accompanist, and Mr. Alfred Arthur conductor. 8. X. Jacobsohn, of Cincinnati, played the tlolln In a way to remind cue of Camilla and Remenyl, and has a large school of his own where he teaches that Instrument. There were three young adlos among the violinists at Cleveland. Mrs. Birdie Hale Brltton was the only soloist of that city, and sang with fine filTfifit. thoueh among so many stars. Miss Emma Howe's vocalization Is sur prisingly like Lltta's, and she chooses very showy and difficult music, much In the stylo we have heard that hushed song bird sing. Col. Maplcson said of Miss Howe, "she Is the only American singer I know who can sing the part of the Queen of Night In 'The Magic Flute.' Miss Henrietta Becbe, of Now York City, who in '81 and '83, sang with very great success In London, and In the presence of royalty, has a charmingly pure and clear voice, which she manages with admirable skill. - At the matinee, In which she did not sing, we chanoed to sit btslde her, and could not avoid hearing her chatter, of per sons and costumes, and muslo and places, all of which she recounted with the relish and fluency of the woman of fashion, but clapped heartily for her rivals as they went off the stage. Mr. Fulkerson, an Ashland boy, a London man, and soon to return there, has been abroad six years, and Improved much In his singing In that time. The richness ofhls tenor andthesympatnetio nuaiuv of hla voice. Its flexibility and entire absence of disagreeable elements or faulty methods, makes him fill every requirement. His "If Ye Love Me Keen Mv Commandments." was nobly rendered, and was written for him. Tbe Royal Academy and the Mayor of London have both conferred medals upon Mr. Fulkerson. Neither Jules Jordan or Mr. King were remarkable, but Myron W. Whit ney maintains his popularity. Miss Agnes Huntington was of all the lady singers the supreme favorite. She is unaffected, gracious and winning, highly endowed physically; and at twenty-four Is a great artist. The un sophisticated may wonder how It happens that so many blondes upon the stage have those fine, clear-cut, very dark, well-arched and remarkable eye brows, but it is pleasant to think that beauty Is on the Increase, and that fair faces may possess that rare element of it that usually accompanies dark locks If It Is not also found with a beard. Madame Trebelll or Mrs. GUlebert, of Paris, has been before the publltt as a professional singer twenty-stx years.and wears upon the stage royal medals and her accumulated diamonds, and Jewels set with precious stones, so that she rep resents a great deal of either wealth or favor, as well as brilliancy. She was the least pleasing In face and manner of any of the ladles, and her counten ance seen through the dls-cnchantlng opera-glass, was not one those fair de butantes would wish to grow to resem ble. With sll Die splendor of her robes end Uie richness of her Jewels, her dramatic experience and knowledge of musical method, her voice, li under perfect control, was excessively dis cordant In the lower register, and she disappointed expectations. She was a fine pianist at sixteen, and once for au encore, Wednesday evening, pulled off her gloves and sang a lively ballad playing her own accompaniment. . The Tabernacle Is a useful structure; it has already been an Immense 'con venience to Cleveland, and Is getting the worse for wear, as the settling floor In the left aisle Indicates ; but that city and the Vocal Society so mucli needs a music ball, as good and as large as that of Cincinnati, that It Is hoped a few of its rich men will embalm their names In such a building, and so command the lasting gratitude of an appreciative concert-going multitude. Theodore Thomas is opposed to en cores. So are we. The greediness of demanding two or three times as much of a good thing as we bargain for and pay for, Is unfair to the artists, exact ing to the management, and wearisome to suburban patrons, who think there Is enough down in the programme when it takes about three hours to perform it. Tbe Circus. Saturday, June 7th, will be a gala day In Wellington, a sort of a Fourth of July occasion, for then comes the great tent ing exhibition of America, Burr Rob bins' New Consolidate Railroad Shows. With this exhibition eomce Charles W. Fish, the famous champion bareback rider; Madama Martha, who has earned the title "Queen of the Arena," by ber bold and graceful acts ; Pauline Dubsky, the famous Russian equestrienne; A. Marquise, the Brazilian rider; Herr Drayton, the modern Samson ; tbe kings of athletes, tbe Ash ton Brothers, and a host of others too numerous to mention. There will be trained horses, trained oxen and performing elephants, csmcli and ponies. The "dog circus" is an exceptionally fine one. In Burr Rob bins' menagerie will be found specimens of all the rare animals known to the naturalist. ThehugehlppopoUmusex blblted Is the largest and finest speci men ever seen in this country. - There Is no while elephant with tbe show, though plenty of blsck ones are to be seen there, and all of them ordinary elephants, not even a "coal black or pure white sacred elephant" Is to be seen there; or, wa may add, with any other show. The street parade, which starts at 10 p. m., Is long, varied -and filled with pleasing features of many kinds.
