What Temperance People Should Do.
The suggestion by temperance leaders to submit again next
year the proposition of state wide prohibition is foolish. The over
whelming defeat of the question this year shows that the people of
Ohio are not ready for it. To resubmit it next year would mean
certain defeat. It would also mean a lot of hard work, the expen
diture of a lot of money and no advance in the temperance move
ment. We also believe that until there is a change of sentiment in
the larger cities that state wide prohibition would be a mistake in
Ohio. As long as the people of Cincinnati, Cleveland, Toledo and
Dayton are so overwhelmingly in favor of the saloon it would be
farcical to attempt to enforce prohibitory laws in these places.
The sensible thing for the temperance people to do is to sub
mit next year a constitutional amendment making the county the
unit in local option contests, that is restoring County Local Option.
This we believe can be carried, if not linked with state wide pro
hibition. If only the question of county local option is submitted
the cities will not make the strong fight they did in the recent elec
tion. The cry can not be raised about the confiscation of property,
raising taxes and throwing people out of work. The people resid
ing in the large cities will not feel that there is any danger that
they will be interferred with and will therefore not give the huge
majorities against the proposal which were rolled up inthese places
at the election last week.
If the temperance people want to secure results the thing for
them to do is to make their next fight for county local option. If
they want to make a sensational campaign and suffer defeat the
thing for them to do is to again submit the proposal for state wide
Waste or' Public Money.
During the campaign just closed one of the issues was the ex
travagance of public officials and the waste of public money. It
nearly always happens that during the campaigns promises of econo
my in the administrations of public affairs are made but it is seldom
that anything is done to carry out the promises by the candidates
A large amount of public money is wasted each year, legally
wasted. Laws have been passed which require the expenditure of
large sums each year which in no way benefit the general public.
We have decided to point out to our readers some of the ways
in which the public money is wasted. In doing this we will proba
bly offend a number of people who profit from this needless expen
diture of the taxpayers money. That no one can think we are doing
this because of ill will towards these people we will first call atten
tion to a waste of money from which we, as newspapermen, have
By law the county commissioners are required to publish each
year in two county newspapers an itemized account of their expen
ditures. The publication of this report costs the people of Highland
county from 425 to $450. This money in our opinion is absolutely
thrown away. It is not full enough to show whether the money
"was well spent. It is set in small type and the items are numerous.
"We doubt if anyone reads the report. The purpose in publishing
the report is to keep the people advised as to how their money is
spent, but we do not believe that anydne even if he studies it
The county treasurer is also required to publish each year for
six weeks in two newspapers in the county the "Rates of Taxa
tion,," The publication will be found in another column. It costs
the county for the two papers from $450 to $475. We are not in
favor of entirely doing away with this publication but the form is
entirely wrong. If it is published at all only the total rate in each
township should be given and only for one week instead of six.
This could be done for $25.
Twice each year the probate jndge appoints two men to examine
the county treasury. They are paid $5 a day and it takes them at
least two days to make the examination. Their examinations are
simply formal, the treasurer and deputy really making out their
reports. The reports are published in two newspapers of opposite
politics and costs each year about $100. Here is $140 absolutely
The expense of these three publications cost the people of High
land county each year about $1000 and no one benefits from them
except the newspapers. All of the expenditures are legal, in fact
required by law.
There can be but one reason why the laws were passed and
that was to throw a sop to the newspapers of the state and cause
them to use their efforts to elect candidates of their party to office.
The only reason the laws requiring these publications are not re
pealed is because the members of the legislature are afraid of
incurring the enmity and opposition of the newspapers, which ai'e
looking for this easy money. The taxpayers of Highland county
give the newspapers of the county, without receiving any benefit,
at least $1000 and in the eighty eight counties it means a waste of
at least $125,000.
As long as these reports must be published, we of course are
anxious and glad to jjet the easy money which comes from publish
ing them, but the laws should be repealed.

After a careful study of the election returns we have secured
the impression that some of the people in Cincinnati can not bo said
to favor state wide prohibition.

that you should always speak kindly of the dead and the critically
ill, and the Progressive Party is at least critically ill.
