Space and Column Rates made known on appll cation. rnKKiDKNT Cleveland and bride re turned to the White House Friday. Dan, Lamont acted as President pro tem, at the White House during his absence. Hon. Q. 0. Washburn politely informs the people that he is not a candidate for ilm nomination to Concress. He Ihiuks that he has had suilicienl honors bestowed UDon him in belnp elected to the General Assembly oi this Slate. We are glad to learn that he is so easily satisfied. It is not customary for the American, who has commenced to climb the political ladder, not to wish to go higher. The Norwalk board of health has con tlemned the county Jail as "a standing threat against the health of the community in which it stands." That Is a fine game to play upon the tax payers of Huron county, in order to get a new Jail and beautify Norwalk. Wo hope the county commissioners will have backbone enough to pay no attention to such non sensical verdict, aud stand up for the rights of the tux-payers, and let the one- horse board of health know that It does not own the whole county. Congressional Convention. Our town Is now in a condition to step to the front and politely ask the committee In charge to seriously consider our claims for the coming congressional convention. The .district is not now confined to the counties of Huron, Ashland and Richland for a suitable place to accommodate the delegates, at Wellington is second to no town in the State, of grades which exist in this district We are as central as any other available point, and our railway fa cilities and hotel accommodations are most convenient, and besides these there are other good reasons for having the con venlion here. We understand the commit tee is to meet In a few days to determine by ballot the place for the convention. The advantage we have mentioned, to. (ether with the neatness and cleanliness of our town, will warrant the committee la at least taking our claims into serious consideration. Perhaps It would be well for a committee of citizens to present our 'claims to the committee. The Council Proceedings, regular monthly meeting of the To Onr Business Men. GlOTTttlKK: We ask your attention for a few min utes while we consider our mutual wel fare and grievances. We say mutual, because we consider the early closing of (tore as being strictly mutual between employer and employe ; In other words, we claim It would benefit the employer equally as much, If not more, than the employe. To verify this, let us suppose that every store In town Is closed at 7 p. m. Will this diminish the demand for groceries, clothing, boots and shoes or dry goods? . We answer, decidedly, no I Consequently, this cannot harm our em ployers, financially. On the other hand, let us consider the mutual good to be derived from early closing, Instead of being tied down from 8:30 a. m. till 9 p. mn and often 10 and 11 as at present, It would give the married man an hour or so to spend with his fam ily every evening, a privilege which he Cannot now enjoy, without depriving him self of necessary sleep. It would give the single man an equal length of time to spend socially or in reading, both of which he Is deprived of a It now Is; be side these pleasure to be derived from early closing, let us consider for a mo ment the physical benefit. If we could devote the two hour between (even and nine to rest and recreation, Instead of work, which la, as we all know, three bra. longer than a day' work, wouldn't we feel more like beginning the next day' labor, than we do at the present time? Wouldn't we see less of that tired, lan guid look that Is so common among busi ness men and clerk. Would not clerk feel brighter and more like pleasing their employer than at present? One argument we have heard, against early closing, Is that it would discommode the public; In other woiJs, that w ought to put In thirteen or fourteen hour every day In order to accommodate men who sit on the hitching post until they tee the light are being turned out Among all with whom we have talked, In regard to early closing, and we have seen at least fifty, we haye not found one, either among country or town people, but who sanc tions the move, heartily, and readily agreed that It would soon become gener ally understood, and would inconvenience no one. We hope no employer will do us the In justice to think for a moment that we de sire to lessen their profit or do an injus tice to the public; on the other hand, we . desire only to do what is considered for our mutual benefit, both by ourselves and many of our employers. Why Is It that there is no banking business done In our town after four o'clock ? Simply because the door are closed at that hour, and we all make an effort to get there before the door are closed. Other business could te conducted In the same way. , . Your Respectfully, . A Clerk. Council was held Monday evening at the council chamber. Present: Mayor Wean, Clerk Goodwin, Councilmen Kirk, Lang, Johns, D. P. and Jas. Sheldon. The mln- utes of the last meeting were read anu ap proved, after which the following bills were passed: E Hackett, salaiy as Marshal ... .$50 00 " caring for prisoners. . . 1 80 J White, lighting lamps 19 00 " setting lamp-posls 50 W W Wells, salary to June 7th . . 87 40 11 Clark & Co., stationery 4 50 Haines & McKinney.lamp fixtures 4 50 Lang & Peirce 23 20 B F Black, salary of firemen to Junel 134 29 W II Seragc, labor 24 58 lumber 183 71 The following named persons were con firmed as special policemen: . Hackett, Jr., G. W. Ryder, John Folk, J. M. Wide- man, O. L. Church, W. Serage. W. W Harvey and J. W. Houghton were confirm ed as members of the board of health. The committee on offices and ofllcers rec ommended the appointment of K. U. Hart as city solicitor. The township trustees being present to transact business in which the two bodies are jointly interested, Mayor Wean gave them an audience. It was thought neces- sary to appoint two suitable persons, one for each body, to act as agents for the care and custody of the town hall and opera house, to lease, collect rent, employ janit or and make a repoit of their proceedings annually. Oscar Herrlck and W. R. Wean were selected as the agents. It was proposed to construct a stone walk, twelve feet wide, to extend from the main entrance of the opera house due west to Main St, and that the township and corporation, bear the expense Jointly; re ferred to committee on public grounds. Adjourned till Tuesday evening. Last week the members of the Council were interviewed a to what course they intended to pursue In regard to closing the saloons under the provision of the Dow law. They gave the citizens to un derstand that if the signatures of a major- ity of the voters of the village could be se cured to a petition asking for such a move, the matter would be taken under consid eration at the next regular meeting. meeting of the executive board of the Law and Order League was called and conferr ed with a committee from the W. C. T. U. to arrange for circulating the petition. At the adjourned meeting of the Council Tuesday evening the petition was present ed, bearing the signature of three hundred and twenty legal voters of the Tillage of Wellington, lacking but four of being two third of the highest number of rote cast at any election since the Tillage was incorporated. The chairman of the committee on ordi nances presented a carefully prepared or dinance, framed by ex-Judge Hale, to pro hibit the sale of intoxicating liquor In the village of Wellington, providing it passed on or after July 1st, 80. The subject wu discussed briefly, and Mr. Kirk made a motion to lay it on the table until after the Supreme Court passe on the validity of the organization of the Senate at the time when it passed the Dow law, which will probably be about the 20th of this month. The Mayor informed the Council that the ordinance could be passed now, and if the decision ot the Supreme Court should declare the Senate not a legally constituted body, the ordinance would be null and of no effect, but, If they should declare It to have been legal, the ordinance would be valid. The yeas and naya were called. Those voting to lay the matter on the table were Johns, Uemenway, Jas. Sheldon, Lang and Kirk; against, D. P. Sheldon.- . IL Hart was confirmed a city solic itor, and then an adjournment was taken to Tuesday evening, June 22nd.
