thusiasm by the Republicans every
Eishop Gilbert Haven, of the II.
E. church, died in Maiden, Mass. on
the 10th. lie was 5S years of age,
and Lad-been a Bishop since 1S72.
The Legislature will get down to
business as soon as the Senatorial
election is over, and a short session
is demanded by the people.
Oar Representative, lion. J. J.
Pugtley, is chairman of the House
standing committee cn Privileges
and Elections. He its also a mem
of the standing committee on Rail
roads aDd Telegraphs.
Senator EntrekiD, of this district,
is chairman of the Senate standing
committee on Soldiers' & Sailors'
Orphans' Home and School for Im
becile Youth, andis also a member
of the committee on Fees and Sala
ries. Gen. Garfield was unanimously
nominated for U. S. Senator, by the
Republican caucus, on Tuesday night
of last week, and the election will
take place to-morrow (Wednesday)
when the nomination no doubt will
be confirmed by the entire Republi
can majority in both branches of the
Legislature. The voluntary with
drawal of Judge Tart, Es-Gov. Deni
son and Hon. Stanley Matthews,
from the contest before the nomina
tion, thus making it unanimous,
was a merited compliment to Gen.
Garfield, and a graceful acquiescence
on their part, in the unmistakable
popular will, which plainly indicated
him as its first choice. He will not
take Lis seat until March 4, 1SS1.
Gov. Foster was inaugurated last
Monday. Notwithstanding the storm,
the military display was the finest
ever seen at the State Capital. Gov.
Bishop introduced his successor,
who was received with great enthu
siasm by the immense assembly and
then delivered his inaugural, which
was very brief, modest and sensible.
The oath of office was then adminis
tered by Judge Gilmore, and the
Governor retired to his rooms in the
Lieut. Gov. Hickenlooper then
took the oath of office in the Senate
chamber, and the Senate adjourned.
All the other State officers elect
were then sworn in and inducted in
to their respective offices.
Gov. Garcelon and Lis Council did
not accomplish their purpose after
all. The Republicans refused to take
part in the organization of the bogus
Legislature last week. Consequently
the House had no quorum, and no
business could be done. The Dem
ocrats and Fusionists could not elect
a Governor, and consequently the
State is left without any, Garcelon's
term Laving expired! Having got
tLings into this miserable muddle,
the President of the bogus Senate,
James D. Lampson, was last Monday
elected Acting Governor by a joint
vote of both Jlouses.
Before retiring from office Gover
nor Garcelon authorized Maj. Gen.
Chamberlain to protect the public
property until a new Governor is
elected and qualified. Gen. C. has
been acting under this order and has
thus far preserved peace. It is said,
however, that he will not recoernize
Lampson as Acting Governor.
Last Monday evening, tne liepub
lican members-elect quietly entered
the State House without opposition.
and proceeded to organize, admitting
to seats ail the members wno were
shown to be elected by the returns.
A legal quorum was present in both
Houses. A joint resolution was then
passed, asking the Supreme Court to
decide upon the legality of the or
ganization. The decision may be
expected by Friday or Saturday, and
if favorable, as is confidently antici
pated, it is to be hoped all parties
will acquiesce, and the whole trouble
be peaceably and fairly settled.
Charges of bribery have been pre
ferred by two Democratic members
of the House against a Republican
lawyer, named II. R. White, who is
charged with having offered 8s.id
members $1000 each to resign their
seats. The Republicans deny the
charge, which will be investigated
by a committee of the House.
The Indian perpetrators of the
White River massacre had quite ex
ceeded the limits of human patience
before, but information Las been tele
graphed which places them wholly
without its pale. Ei-Governor Hunt,
of Colorado, 6ays a Washington dis
patch to the Chicago Tribune, re
ceived a telegram some days ago,
which consideration for the policy of
Mr. Schurz induced him to keep se
cret, but now that the Pueblo Chief
tain of New Tear's day has published
a card signed by Mr3. Meeker, to the
effect that the female prisoners in
the hands of the U tes were outraged
by their captors, he hesitates no
longer. The news comes in sucn a
shape that its truth can scarcely be
doubted. We advise Messrs. Hatch
and Adams to take their hostages to
some safe place, and take good care
of them while they are en route.
General Garfield says: "It looks
as though there were forces at work
m t : j
in organizing ims muYemeuiuuismu
of Maine; that these people were act
ing under the advice of party asso
ciates who had a programme, in
which Maine was the beginning. I
have not a doubt but this makes it
all the more necessary that our peo
ple shall resist the first step of the
programme to the fullest extent of
Bringing the Matter Home—Suppose a
Suppose that at the last election
in this county, some cf the ballots
had been voted for T. H. Long, the
Democratic candidate for Sheriff, in
stead of Thomas II. Long. And
suppose the Republican Clerk of the
Court had refused to recognize these
votes for T. II. Long as rightfully
belonging to Thomas H. Long, and
on that ground had given the certificate
of election to Mr. WTilliams, Lis Repub
lican opponent. What a howl of in
dignation would Lave gone up from
the Democratic organ of this county,
and from the whole Democratic par
ty, and not without good reason.
Yet that would have been exactly a
parallel case to the action of Gov.
Garcelon and Lis Council in Maine,
in refusing certificates to some of the
Republican members elected to the
L-'gislature, and giving their seats
to their opponents, who were never
elected by the peoplo.
In rue District the name of the
Republican candidate was George
W. Nicholson, but some of the bal
lots were accidentally printed G. W.
Nicholson, instead of with the full
name of George W. But all those
votes for G. W. Nicholson, which
every man of common sense and
common honesty must- know were
intended for George W., were taken
from him by Gov. Garcelon and Lis
Council, and counted for an imagin
ary candidate, ("G. W.") wLo had
no existence except in the warped
and excited brains of the Governor
This is a fair specimen of the man
ner in which the Republicans of
Maine have been cheated out of their
representation in the Legislature
and we ask every honest, candid
Democrat, in Highland county, if he
can approve and sanction Buch acts "

Chairman Cameron, of the Nation
al Republican Convention, has issued
the following call :

Gen. Grant and party, consisting
of Mrs. Grant, Gen. Sheridan and
wife, Col. Grant and wife, and one or
two others, left Washington for the
South on the evening of Dec. 30th.
They passed through Fredericksburg
and Richmond hastily, were formally
welcomed at Beaufort, S. C, and
Aurrusta and Savannah, Ga, and
from the latter place went by steam
er to Fernandina, Fla., where they
were met by a larjre concourse of
people, and tendered a public recep
tion on Monday. After a brief stay
in Florida, which Gen. Grant now
visits for tho first time, the party
will proceed to Havana, Cuba, where
prepirations have already been made
for their reception.
The New York Times calls atten
tion to the fact that nearly every re
turn in that city and Brooklyn at the
last election was defective in form,
and misbt Lave been thrown out
had the Republicans done as Gov
ernor Garcelon is attempting to do
in Maine, to-wit: follow the letter
rather than the spirit of the law.

have taken from the Legislature

Xue Columbus papers bring us
the last annual messa&o of Gov
ernor Bishop. We summarize from
the Evening Dispatch. After apolo
gizing as it were, for the appearance
of the document, by saying that it is
his duty to inflict one upon the peo
ple, he congratulates tLe country up
on the present condition of peace
and prosperity, and seems to think
that there is something after all in

which we learn that the present

gate the total sum of &il,490,5rl -53.
The receipts into the State
Treasury from all sources last year
amounted to $G,G8,8G5.07, including
the cash balance of last year. The
disbursements during the year for
all purposes were o,G53,752.33;

treasury on the 15th of November
last, of 4995,112.74. The estimated
disbursements ior tne coming year
are placed at 4,930,902.03.
The Governor thinks that the
Public Works of the State are in
better condition than they were when
in tho hands of the lessees, and that
under proper management they can
be made self-sustaining. The mili
tia of Ohio is in good condition, and
equal in effectiveness to that of any
other State. TLe need of additional
prison accommodations is urged,
and also the establishment of chil
drens' homes. He favors the pres
ent Board of State Charities, and
says that such a system of supervis

lature. The condition and progress
of the Ohio State University at Co

JUDGE THOMPSON'S BILL AND
THE AMENDED PETITION.
The Committee of Nine, to whom
was referred the subject of prepar
ing bills to be presented to the
Legislature, and a form of petition
to be circulated throughout the
State, met in Columbus the day af
ter the Local Option State Conven
tion, and organized by appointing
our townsman, Judge Thompson,
Chairman, and Mrs. Woodbridge, of
Ravenna, Secretary. The Conven
tion prepared two bills, (as they were
instructed to do), one drawn up by
Judge Thompson, and embodying
the right of woman to an equal voice
with mm, by petition, in the en
forcement of an anti-liquor Local
Option law the other bill, drawn
up by Hon. G. T. Stewart, of Nor
walk, allowing woman to vote by
ballot, instead of expressing her will
by petition. We publish Judge
Thompson's bill on our first page,
and below will be found the form of
petition adopted by the Committee.
It differs only slightly from the pe
titions circulated before the State
Convention was held, the principal
difference being that in the new form
all petitioners are required to be

The undersigned, citizens of
Township, County, State of
Ohio, over the age of twenty-one,
would respectfully memorialize your
honorable body, for tho enactment
of a Local Option Anti-Liquor Law,
without a clause allowing the privi
lege of the sale of intoxicating liq

of taxe3 therefor, but with a clause
allowing the voice of woman, by pe

William's Bros' History of Highland
and Ross Counties.
We are glad to be able to note that
Messrs. Williams Brothers seem abundant
ly satisfied with tho progress of their
work in Hillsboro and Highland county.
There appears to be a very wide-spread
interest iu the History among the best
class of citizens, and the outlook is as. en
con rging as the proprietors of the enter
prise could desire. It is fully demon
strated, from the interest taken in the
forthcoming History, that the publishers
and their assistants will be encouraged to
their best efforts, and work with a spirit
which they could scarcely be expected to
feel, were they met with lukewarmness
or indifference. Several of Messrs. 'Wil
liams Bros.' corps are now in Hillsboro,
but the greater number are still at work in
Ross county, and will not be here for sev
eral weeks. The work, which is of neces
sity a slow one, will be pushed forward
with all the dispatch that is consistent
with thoroughness, and our people may
expect an elaborate and valuable History
of their county and its institutions.
The force of men employed oh the
work numbers over twenty, and all are
thoroughly experienced in their particular
lines of employment. When we reflect
that with this large number of men, the
collection and preparation of the History
of these two counties, i3 so large a work
that it will occupy a period of nearly a
year, we cannot regard as unreasonable the
price at which the book is sold, but on
the contrary, wonder that it should be so

Judge Thompson's Columbus Speech.
The Columbus Democrat has the
following editorial Dotice of the
speech of Judgi Thompson, made in
Columbus the night before the Lo
cal Option State Convention:
Last night, at the City Hall, Hon.
Judge Thompson, of Hillsboro, au
thor of the new local opion move
ment, delivered an address in expla
nation and defense of his proposition
that "women, as free-born 'citizens,
have equal rights and privileges with
men as 'petitioners in the enforce
ment of the provisions of a local op
tion liquor law." Touching the con
stitutionality of local option, he de
clared that nine or ten States around
us had enacted local option laws,
and the Courts had all sustained
them. In Ohio the Supreme Court
had sustained the local option law,
which enabled the citizens of Cin
cinnati to vote $20,000,000 for rail
road purposes, had endorsed the lo
cal option law, which granted the
people women included the right
to establish free turnpikes in Ohio,
and numerous other laws now in
force. Touching the proposed
"special tax" which was in reality
a "license" law, he declared it en
tirely unconstitutional, as the con
stitution treated the liquor traffic as
a' "crime" which could in no wise be
legalized. His letter to the Cincin
nati Gazette was then read, and he
defended most ably and conclusively,
to Lis audience, that the constitution
gave women the right to speak
through "petition" not by "ballot"
as an elector, as she was not an elec
tor, nor could Bhe be upon the
question as to whether she and her
neighbors would consent to a con
tinuance of the liquor traffic, or de
clare against, the curse. He was
frequently interrupted by bursts of
applause, and at the conclusion the
petition to the Legislature was sign
ed by nearly the whole audience.
The meeting was presided over by
Colonel Samuel F. Kerr, State Libra
rian, and was in every sense a sig

WASHINGTON, D. C., Jan. 9, 1880.
The interests of Agriculture and
Commerce will be looked after this
winter, and it is likely that some
progess will be made in placing them
more directly under Government in

particular, demands attention.

It is gratifying to find that a Jew
of the Democratic papers are honest
enough to express their decided dis
approval of the Maine iniquity,
though the great majority, like the
Cincinnati Enquirer, either openly
approve it, or give consent by their
silence. Among the former class is
the Columbus Democrat, which has
the boldness to say:
"A few more performances like
that of Alame and the Democratic par

the misfortune of the party to be led

On Sunday morning last, between 4 and

We desire to urge all parents who have
children attending the public schools, to
especially charge each child to call at the
post office three times a day, and ask the
postmaster, "Is there anything for us?'" If
there are more than three children in the
family, so much the belter; you cannot fail
get your mail. Of course this incessant
calling does not annoy the postmaster. He
likes it. Business men will please take
ote of this, and not hamper the children
when they come in squads of fifty or more
at a time, after being liberated from school.
Their business and correspondence is vast
ly more important than yours; so give them
achance. It generally takes a half-hour for
them to get through, but that's nothing.
What is your time compared with theirs?
