Jan 23 The city charter commis
sion campaign is growing more com
plicated sb well as caustic In other
words as some say Hades Is to pay
Of course the most potent leader so
far Is the Chamber ot Commerce
whose choice are the candidates on
what is known as the Convention
ticket That is excellent so far as
personality efficiency integrity and
popularity go but It Is objected It Is
too one sided in a political sense be
ing lnrgcly republican
The local llquormen like some of
their brethren out In the Mahoning
rural districts are considerably exer
cised by reason ot the fact that 200
saloons will bo put out of commission
by the new law providing that there
shall be but one saloon for each 500
inhabitants Of course the prominent
big dealers many In tho business
legnlly and respectfully for years will
not be touched Few or no bars in
hotels will be disturbed but It is 100 to
1 a lot of places conducted by for
eign gentlemen will get It swiftly
and surely In the nect The extreme
east and the extreme west ends are
sure to suffer and there Is likely to
be some walling In Commerce street
But It is going to be A delicate task
to do the job with proper discrimina
tion and justice for out of the entire
436 whos qualified to say the 210 de
nied are not generally as deserving
as somo of tho 226 who get permits
or licenses to remain
If plans now outlined are pushed
to full fruition this city county and
valley will have what In fact will be
a relic or historic museum And that
is ob It should be In a meeting of
the Mahoning Valley Historical So
ciety It was Btated by its president
J G Butler Jr that a home Is to
be secured for tho safer keeping of
the societys relics data and so on
and that a continuation of history
which now ends at 1876 Is to be
written tho society having authorized
tho employment of an historlnn to
collect Information and put It In prop
er form Tho relics etc aro now

M Jowett MeGown waB elected the
official historian but It would seem
from the recent action he is no long
er tho Macaulay or Gufrot probably
for the reason his time Is fully taken
up with the discharge of the duties
attached to Ills office of secretary ot
the Chamber of Commerce There is
no sort of doubt as to his historian
qualifications His acquaintance Is
extensive his information large his
access to services and authorities
easy aud his literary stylo clear
graceful and graphic
There Is apprehension on account
of the condition of Hon George F
Arrel who is confined to his home
with illness He Is one of the oldest
ablest and best known members of
tho Mahoning county bar and has
been vnriously honored by the people
who never reposed confidence In a
man moro worthy capable clean and
honest He was also a personal
friend of the late President McKlnley
and was offered by him and refused
a position of national prominence He
has been city solicitor and was com
mon pleas judge and been conspicu
ous in the best life of tho city for
nearly u not fully half a century
