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

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

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.

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

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

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

and then tho tears began to trickle down
her cheeks. "It I bad eyer thought of

baby, which was about half awake by this
time, In alliW Mrs. Garrett to compose

"What day is to-day V asked Mrs. Gar-
The twenty-first, and you would have

"I have not kept count, so you see how
much interest I had."

Yes, I know, and God knows," and
she began crying again. She then related

that made them wild, and caused endless

She will be allowed to keep her baby until

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.
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. I looked,
and bad for some tune, Uke a person In con
sumption. Hood's Barsaparilla did me so
much good that I wonder at myself sometimes.
and my friends frequently speak ot it" Hbs.
