AnftHMuvrK Witfe made Monday before tbe Supreme Court at Washington, D, bv thu defuudunt on nppenl In case United Slitos va the Mormon church at Suit Luke to dissolve tho corporation and conflscal tbe properly m favor of the government, Tbe court below decided in favor of tbe plaintiff and appointed a receiver to lake Charge of tho church properly. The U clsion of the court is looked forward I with irront interest. If the defendants gain the nay, tbe Edmund bill becomes void aud of no effect. A law was passed Inst winter by th'1 General' Assembly requiring banks to make a report of all doposits that have boeo on band for seven years uncalled for, to.the Probate Judge of the county, be. tween tbe first and third Mondays in January, and tbe penalty lor not so doing beina $500. Tbe stale proposes to confli cate all such money to the credit of the state. Some of tbe Havings and State Banks have compiled with tbe law as lo making tbe report, but tbe National Banks reuard it as unconstitutional and have de. clined to make a report A lest case will probably soon be planted against some National Bank. We visited tbe National Bank here und was Informed by Cashier R. A. Ilorr that they had nothing on band to report. To make a report ol that kind would appear to be doing nothing bui justice, but for tho stato to attempt to take charge ol such lunda we are Inclined to think the courts will have a jtood time when they enlorce ihe rule. There ap pears to be do justice In it Eight thousand four hundred and sixty eight and half dollars are disbursed to pay tbe expenses of delivering the elec toral Toie from each state to the Vice President of tbe United Btatee. Tbe electoral college io each state, selects one of their number to convey tbe vote to Ibe capital of tbe nation. The carrtet from the state of Maryland receives $1060 and the one from Oregon receiving $750.50. Ohio's carrier receives $121.75. It would seem that such an expenditure of money Is unnecessary at the present duy. In olden times when they were compelled to f,o on horseback a portion ol tbe way and by stage the balance it might answer, but with the facilities we have for traus portini( matter by express sncb business could be done at a cost not exceeding two hundred dollars and a much more saler plun than at present The same may be said of our Slate, the Sheriff of each county is compelled to carry tbe eb-ction rctirns to Columbus which costs probably five to seven hundred dollars which could be saved in a measure by transporting by express at trifling cost Painful Sores.

R Era Ke rotative B ha hah has forward ed us a copy ola bill as dratted by Mr. Try on, to create the office ol township supervis or snd the letting of certain portions ol work by contract The bill provides that the trustees shall appoint a supervisor each year to have Jurisdiction over the entire township except where a town Is io tbe township and Incorporated. Tbe appoint ment ol a supervisor would meet with serious objection for be should be chosen by the electors. Then again there should be a bill passed authorizing tbe township trustees to appropriate so much money in each township for the erection of a proper building for the storing of property that belougs to the township, and the road supervisor should be compelled to render a sirict account each year to trustees of all property entrusted to his care and tbe condition of same. More tools are dam aged by being left out In Ibe weather dur ing tbe winter months .than the use of same on the roads. There are fifteen hundred townships Id the state and we venture to say that If bouses were erected for tbe storage ol property and the tools properly cated for, the expense tor tbe purchase of same would be reduced one. half within live years. Governor Foraeer has complied with the recommend of tbe Board ol Pardons in tbe case of Mrs. Mary L Garrett to commote ber sentence to imprisonment for life, and if ahe accepts of tbe new situation of affairs tbe em ex to Ibe prison will soon loose sight of ber and she will be conducted In the grim de partment for tbe females where she will be relieved of the care and custody of her young babe. Some one will be delegated with authority to take tbe little one from its mother, and althongb she stand as condemned criminal before tbe law, sym petby will be extended to her when tbe lime comes for the separation. The board of pardons censure Mr. Gsrrett for not looking after tbe cirls before hedld. It will ie remembered that be was not awakened until about Ibe time Mr. Dlmock arrived. The coomunlcation of Jodge Lewis to .be Governor is a queer piece of composi tion. Why the learned Jurist should pen men a communication is beyond the con ception of Our pea. The attorneys in tbe ease, Messrs. E. G. Johnson, ol Elyrla, and J. II. ' Dickson, of this place, leit The State Boatd of Pardons commenced their January session at 2 o'clock tbl afternoon, there being a very large crowd in attendance. Tbe meeting was to have taken place this morning, but on account of the non-arrival of two members it was postponed until this afternoon. At th time mentioned alt members were present As soon ts President Hsgeity called the board to order, Attorney E. G. Johnson, ol Elyrla, began presenting the case for Mrs. Garrett. He traced the history ol the circumstances surrounding tbe crime, this occupying some lime. J. II. Dickson, attorney for Mrs. Garreti followed Mr. Johnson and made a state- mcnt which although brier, covered all the material points in the rase. The claim was made that Mrs. Garrett is not cuilty but is Ihe victim of circumstance. Mrs Wright, of Cincinnati, a lady interested 1 a case, pleaded lor mercy to tbe cod urmned woman and produced petition from women's temperance societies and ihc woman suffrage associations, beside petitions from other organizations, they all embracing thousands of names. Keii reseiibillve liraman, of Lorain county, spok'i of the public sentiment io Lorun county and also that In Medina, saying Ibat everybody wished a commutation ol sentence. Messrs Johnsen snd Dickson also pre sented petitions for commutation of sen tence, these being signed by the jury which convicted ber, and nearly all tbe prominent citizens of Medins. Other pe titions from varlons part ol the state were also presented. After Ibis hearing President llagertt announced that tbe board would consider tbe case in executive session to-uigbt. Tbe following letter was submitted to the board : Mkdwa, O, Nov. 26, 1888. Gov. J. B. Forarer. Columbus. ().: Dear Sir UI have been requested to write you concerning the commutation of tbe sentence of Mrs. Mary L. Garrett, who was convicted of the murder ol Anna Oar- r it at tbe September term of tbe Medina Coun y Common Pleas Court, and senten ced to be executed January 24th, 1880. 1 am in favor or tbe commutation of tbe senteneefu imprisonment for life for the reason that in the case ol Mrs. Garrett the proof was so clear and convincing and the murder that she committed so brutal and borrible that I am of the opinion that it will never be possible to elect a governor at tbe time ot the fire. It was clearly proven by the State that there was coal oil on the floor of this room, but no lamp or oil can could be found anywhere In the room or under tbe floor. It seems to us that Mr. Garrett was as much at fault in not seeing that the two lmblciles were rescued as was Mrs. Garrett, the condemn ed. The case was taken on error to the Circuit Court, who decided that a fair trial has been given Mrs. Garrett, nod that there was no error la Ihe records. There comes to us a recommendation from the trial judge, the prosecuting attorney, aad Judge Hale, who was appointed lo assist the prosecution, and the jurors who tried the case in Ihe Court of Common' Pleas, and all of the circuit judges who heard the case on error, all of ths officers of the county In which Mrs. Garrett was con. vcled, and most of the people of that county. Altogether there are several thousands from there and other parts of the Stale who have petitioned this board lor a commutation in this case. From an examination of all of Ibe testimony (4 th's sad affair, and from tbe fact Unit all Ihe testimony is circumstantial, and in view ot the almost universal demand for a recommendation lor clemency in tlii case, we recommend to tbe Governor that tbe sentence ol dath passed uj on Mary Garrett be commuted to Imprison ment for life." Columbus Dispatch, Jan Uary 18. In accordance with tbe recommemla tion of tho Board of Pardons, and for tbe reasons therein stated, Governor Foruke to-day issued his warrant commuting thi- sentence of death passed on Mary Garreti by tbe Comt of Common Pleas of Mcdinii county, at the September, 1888, term, to imprisonment for lite. Warden Coffin, soon after Ihe Governoi announced his decision, visited the annex where Mrs, Garrett was confined, nni acquainted her with tbe action of tbe ex ecutive, "It Isnt what I deserve," she answered and then tho tears began to trickle down her cheeks. "It I bad eyer thought of such a thing I would feel that I was pun isbed. I ought not to be here at all." The warden began playing with tbe baby, which was about half awake by this time, In alliW Mrs. Garrett to compose herself. "You were wltbiu two days ol your exo cution," be finally said. "What day is to-day V asked Mrs. Gar- rcit The twenty-first, and you would have been exected on Thursday, before 3 o'clock in the morning." "I have not kept count, so you see how much interest I had." "You know whether you are guilty or not?" Yes, I know, and God knows," and she began crying again. She then related ber history as connected with the mur. lend step-dauybters. She bid never ob jected to them, but her bnsland did not want to keep them at home. L"er siopsnn filled their minds with all sorts of things that made them wild, and caused endless trouble. The woman denied any knowl edge or tbe door being bolted when the Are started. Mrs. Garrett will remain in the annex for several days until a cell caa be fixed for ber in the female department She will be allowed to keep her baby until the board meets, when they will make such disposition of tbe little one as they see fit.

Be Sure If you have mode up your mind to boy Hood's Sarsnparllla do not be Induced to take say other. Hood's Barsnparilla Is a peculiar medicine, possessing, by virtue of Its peculiar combination, proportion, and. preparation, curative power superior to an jr other article. A Boston lady who knew what she wanted, snd whose example Is worthy imitation, tells ber experience bclows To Get "In one store where I went to bar Hood's Barsaparilla the clerk tried to Induce me bar their own Instead of Hood's; be told me theirs would last longer; that I might take It on ten days' trial; that If I did not like It I need not pay anything, etc. But be could not prevail on me to change. I told him I knew what Hood's Barsaparilla was. I had taken It, wss satisfied with It, and did not want any other. Hood's When I began taking Hood's Sarsananila I was feeling real miserable, suffering a great deal with dyspepsia, and so weak that at times I could hardly stand.
