- At a meeting of the Republicans held
Saturday, in Medina, Calvin S. Ganyard, t
welt kno-vn and prosperous farmer of
Granger township, was nominated to sue

the lower house. They also endorsed Gov

Senator Hill Is making his trip
through the southern states in his Interest
in the presidential race. This will prove
mistake number sixteen he has made
within the past year. The senator should
let the people call him, then ha would be
more likely to meet with success.
A bill has been passed by the lower
house to close barber shops on Sunday.
This is one step In the right direction but
would It not be a good plan to cover every
other branch of trade that Is operated on
necensarily on Sunday. The barbers
rights should not be abridged and permit
others to have full freedom.
Mrs. J. 0. Blaine, Jr., has made a de
mand upon her father-in-law, J. O. Blaine,
to publish the letters she penned to her
late husband, James O. Blaine, Jr., previ
oas to marriage. Mr. Blaine, senior, bad
evidently better remained quiet, as the
time for the Blaine family to speak was on
th defense at the trial for bill of divorce
ment In Dakota.
It appears that the statutes make it ob
ligatory for the electors of an incorporated
village to see that the time mayor Is
elected for, which Is two years, is served
by the original one elected or his success'
ore. In 1810 E. E, liusted was elected
mayor of this town and in June he re
signed to accept the position of poet,
master. O. L. Couch was then appointed
by the council to serve until the following
annual election which was to be held In
April 1801. It was then supposed that a
mayor could be elected for the full term
ot two year. But it seems that this Is not
the esse. He could only be elected to fill
the unexpired term of E. E. Husted which
expire Way 1 1802. Now this is the
law but we are inclined to think it I not
good law for It leaves town with not suf .
flcient time to establish a line of policy to
be enforced. Since 1800 we have had
three mayors which Is not a very good
thing for a town to experience. When
Justine of the peace vacates bis office,
whether by resignation or otherwise,
before his term expires his successor Is
elected for the full term of three years
and this Is the plan that a mayor should
be elected on. He should be elected for a
full term of two years and pay no attention
Still another Important decision of the
United States supreme court Is the one In
volved In the case of the United States
against the state of Texas. Can the
United States bring suit against a state?
Ia the case mentioned this question wu
the direct Issue. The decision given is
that the United Slates can sue a state.
This Is anothnr Important step toward the
actual nationalizing of tbo federal govern
ment The old idea that the general so v.
ernmcnt has do power to enforce Its de
crees against a itate, except by force of
arms, Is repudiated. The right and the
power of the national government to en
force IU supreme authority by civil process
in the courts Is distinctly affirmed. Chief
Jostle Fuller and Justice Lamar, how
ever, dissented from the opinion rendered,
maintaining that the constitution of the
United States In its grant ot original juris
diction to the United States supreme court
does not Include the right to entertain Jur
isdiction ob t suit of the United States
against state. Ia the recent decision o
th United Bute supreme court in the
case ot "Governor" Boyd against Governor
Tbsyer of Nebraska in which neither
Chief Justice Fuller nor Justice Lamar
dissented the federal court not only de
clared Mr. Boyd to bn entitled to citizen
ship, but went still further and declured
him entitled to the governorship ot the
stale, shows, equally as in the case men
tioned above, that since the war the evolu
tion ot the;nation has made great and Irre
traceable advancement. The eagle Is out
of the egg and will never be put back in
to Its shell. Advance.
Washington, Mar. 11, TO. Special.
The president seeks no war with Great
Britain or any other power, but like the pa
triotic American that he is, is determined
that American rights shall be maintained,
let the consequences be what they may.
All of the correspondence up to date to
gether with the recently signed arbitra
tion treaty, is before the senste, which,
Judging from opinions expressed by indi
viduals is of about the same mind as the
president and it is not probable that the
treaty will be ratified, unless Lord Salis
bury on behalf of bis government, shall
agree to a renewal of the modus vlvendl
In Bering sea. Should he persist in re
fusing It Is probable that the. treaty will
be rejected and sufficient nsval force
sent to Bering sea to steze all illegal seal
ers, and II need be to fight any British ves
sels that may Interfere. And that is not
all. Canada may expect to find all th
favors she now enjoys by courtesy of this
government withdrawn. Lord Salisbury
would better think twice before acting
upon the last communication lent him.
He certainly would if he knew bow very
popular war with Gieat Britain would
be in this country.
Representative Barter, of Ohio, is about
the only man in congress who expresses
any doubt of the house passing the Bland
Iree coinage bill by majority anywhere
from 30 to 73 when It I taken up under
the resolution adopted on Monday last,
Mr. Harter believes, or professes to be
lieve, that between now and the 23 tnst,
he can convince enough Democrats cf the
danger attending the passage of the free
