THE ENTEBPBISE. J .B. Smith, Proprietor. WELLINGTON, OHIO. Entered at the postefflce at Wellington tta toOB4 olaia matter, according to statute . TEEMS. OneTear 11 BixMonths Three Months ,l Advertlsln dveesnt per 1 Ine .each Insertion gpaeeaad ColnmnKateemadcknowaoDappli. atloa. There appears to be a growing sent! merit In favor of having only biennial sessions of the legislature as the const tutlon provides. For the past forty years this provision of the constitution hag been wholly disregarded under the pretense o a necessltv: but the time has now arrived when we think the constitution should be lived nn to. If anvthinc should arise be. tween sessions requiring the action of the legislature, it could be convcnea in extra session. Contracts ean be let to better ad vantage for two years thaa for oue and laws can be nassed accordingly. The ha TKKPRisK not only favors bienDial sessions but also favors a reduction In the number of members. One-half the number would transact the business just as well If not better than the present number ana tl.no ve one-half the expense. The (Treat trouble has been that the people have not sent the proper persons to repre sent them. If an individual cannot piny a irood eacio of poker and take a smile with his Irieuds he stands a small sliow of being sent to Columbus. Let the electors select clean men to represent them j and let ua have biennial sessioua, the sessions not to continue more than ninety days. Some of the chlnnmen are perfectly wil ling to register, and perhaps they all will be when they understand the law more fully. It is claimed that we baye no right to discriminate between nations. We, as a nation, huvo the same rights as n individual and should be clothed with the lawful power to entorce them. The government of China forbids its people trom leaving that country. Those who do leave, leave at their own risks. This Is, perhaps, the reason why so many of the Chinamen who come to our shores are out law. In general, they are of no Ueneflt to tbia country. They do not come with a view of becoming citizens; their only object is to accumulate money to take back to their nutlve land. Many other bad features are charged to these people, and it has become necessary to have a list of them in order to better protect our in terests. K the government of China t wants to retaliate by compelling our peo ple in that country to register, we can find no fault It issimply a business method. It Is now only a little over two weeks until the state convention. The delegates should be Instructed by their constituents to vote for no man for governor who Is connected with any Isms or fnclloo, us we cannot afford to go into battle with that kind of a man. What is wanted Is man that will attend to the duties if the office, and not be gadding about three fourths of the time, leaving the ofllo: lu charge of a private secretary. Too much of that kiud of business has been going on for the past decade. If a man cannot atlord to devote hla time to the busincssof the ofllre, he had better not accept the nomination. Let us haye a business gov ernor and let the politicians Uke a rct-U School-master Reefy, the editor of the Democrat in Elyria, will have to renew bia visits to Washington if he secures the Elyria poftofflce. Eight years ago It is re ported that he made several trips tu the white house and sat in the kitchen with hi bat between his knees and h's limits shaking, waiting for President Cleveland to giye him a postufllce; but a republican senate was then In the way, and a nomi nation by bis excellency was not equivalent to a conOrmatlon. Keefy became disgust ed and returned hime. Honest John Sherman looked Into the case a little and Reefy received the plum. The labor unions in Chicago have de cided to give the government of the Unit ed States a sufficient notice to open the gate of the fair on Sunday, and then If It i not done they will be opened anyway. This Is in perfect keeping with the policy of the onions and whisky element of Uia city. . The Dig Four ha a debt of $34,000,000 hanging over It at present. The system operates 23.17 mile of road, which would make the Indehtcdnes (14,548.61 per mile. Congresman Harter baa got one post master appointed in hi district. Mis Hardy, of Brighton, now handle the mall in place of D. M. Hall, resigned. The Elyria Democrat came eut last week tn a new dress. The next step for the pro prietor will be to sign his name Editor and P.M. The main track of the Cleveland, Lo. rain' & Wheeling road was assessed at $0200, side track $1000, rolling stork $3700. The case on trial now I Chicago vs. the Uoiied Bute. Ex-Myor Washburn St, Co. are the complaining wltnrs. Ei-Prwldcnt Harrison should go to Chicago and mp with hi high-minded tviard of director over Sunday. Prepare for the political battle, to be fought in Elyria. , . PAID THE PENALTY. Bxeoutlon of Frank 01 Almy, the New England Murderer. He Killed Chrletle Warden, m Young- Wo mi, a a, Gold-Blooded Manner-One of the Moat Remarkable Crimes on Boeord - HUtory of the Tragedy. Concord, N. H,, May 17. Almy waa hanged Tuesday morning. The drop fell at 10:14. The execution was a bung ling job. Almy' feet touched the floor when he went through the drop and he waa strangled to death. George H. Abbott, alia Frank L. Almy, waa executed for the brutal murder at -Hanover, N. H., on July 17, 1891, of Christie Warden. Ten out of fifteen of the last year of his life were spent in prison. Hie father, overcome by shame, killed himself years ago. The boy waa bad from his tenth year, and after thefts and more serious crime, was sent to prison for a long term. He eseaped, and at last went to work for Andrew Warden and fell In love with his daughter Christie. She did not fa vor his auit, because she knew nothing and he would say nothing of his past When hie time of service expired he waa not re-engaged and was supposed to have left the neighborhood. At 9:30 o'clock on the night of the murder Mr. Warden, her daughters Christie and Fannie and Miss Louise F. Uoodell, a neighbor, were making their way home along a lonely road near the farm house when Almy confronted them. He said: "Mrs. Warden, you and Fanny may move on with safety, I ahall not harm you unless you interfere with me, and if you do, I will Bhoot you like dogs. Christie, I have come a thousand mile to meet you and now our time is short" He drew a revolver, cocked it, and the four women stood petrified. Almy seized Chriatie by the left ahoulder and locking, his left arm around her neck, placed the muzzle of the weapon agalnat her sister Fanny's breast and said: "I have hated you Fan, and un less you let go of Christie I will blow you into eternity." The young girl answered.' "Shoot, then. I will not let her go." Almy grasped Christie around the waist and pulled her into a clump of trees out of eight He threw hla vic tim to the ground, grasped her firmly by the feet and skirt and dragged her toward a email brook, 00 yard from the highway. A he advanced he kept shouting "Stand back, or I'll shoot" This threat overawed the mother and her friend, but did not frighten Fanny. Almy continued to drag his burden to ward the underbrush, which he gained after Chriatie' outer clothing had been literally torn from her body. Holding her there in hia embrace he saw the sister but a few rods away. Taking de liberate aim he fired, but the girl came on. Again he fired, and she felt the whit of the bullet at her shoulder. Con cealing herself near by ahe waited. An other shot was fired. After five minutes passed a neighbor came. The man was Emmett Marshall. Aa they stole on the place where Almy was located two shot were fired in quick succession and a death cry fol lowed. The tragedy was over, and they saw Almy rush up the hli in the direction of the town. Christie was found lyingon her left side, her cloth ing covered with blood from a wound in her back and another in her head. Almy went to the Warden barn and waa looking out when the lifeless body of his victim waa carried lnt 'he house. He remained in concealment for more than a month, foraging at night for sustenance, and often visiting the grave of Christie. Suspicion waa finally aroused. The barn was surrounded and after a siege of ten hours, during which Almy' leg waa broken by a bullet fired by Charles Hewitt, Almy surrendered on the as surancc that he should not be lynched. He was identified as George H. Abbott by his relative. WILL OPEN ON SUNDAY. The Hoard of World's Fair Dlrectnra Tnto to pn the GaUe on Honda jr-WIQ Re turn the Money Donated by Cong-roes.

C. 8, Souihvrtck North Hadlson, Ohlo " My wife and three children were attacked with diphtheria at the same time. After serious illness the greatest danger was safely passed, but they were all left with Paralysla of the Throat, and with my wife It also affected her limbs. Her arms were numb near to the shoulders, ao eompanled with a prickling sensation. It was so difficult for her to swallow, it seemed as If she must starve. The children were In a sim ilar condition. Physicians were greatly per plexed and said It was very critical with my wife, as she wss more than likely to have paral ysis at any time, and If so It would be very daubtfal If aha earrired. Finally a friend suggested Hood's Bsrsaparilla. Although we had not the slightest faith, we were so dis couraged that we were ready to try anything. I got a bottle and began giving It to them. Words are Feeble to express the gratification we all felt at the end of a week to mid an Improvement When they had finished three bottles I eould not see but they were as well as previous to their sickness. The numbness and paralysis entirely disap peared.
