The End of the Claypoole—
Wells Contest in the Constitutional
Mr. Alexander, from the com
nitte on Privileges and Elec
tions, to whom was referred the
testimony taken in the contest
ed case of U. S. Claypoole
against Harvey Wells, sitting
member in the Convention
from Vinton county, reporte'd
that the committee had exam
ined the testimony and law re
lating to the case, and that
they had arrived at the conclu
sion that the point relied on by
the contestor that the con
tested was not legally elected,
on account of cot having been
a resident of the county for one
year preceding the election,
was not a valid one, as the only
requisite to make a citizen el
igible to a seat in the Conven
tion was that of being an elec
tor of the county at the time of
the election. The report con
cluded with a resolution to the
effect that Mr. Wells was enti
tled to his seat.
Tho resolution that Mr.
Wells was legally elected to
the Convention was adopted
yeas 84, nays 13.

The County Treasury still
appears to be under a cloud.
The taxes for June are coming
in slowly, and are paid out al
most as soon as they are re

still at work making an exam
ination into the condition of
the county affairs. We are in
formed that lie will probably
"be through this week, and that
a full report of his work will
tie made. As be has proceed
ed, "irregularities" and "mis
constructions of the law" have
been discovered times altnott
without number. Humors have
crept abrotd of large misap
plications ot funds from the
County Treasury within the
past ten years. The examin
ers are now at work on the
"Road Bonds." It is generally
understood that the deficit
here is very large and that the
exact amount can never be as
certained. There is said to be
nothing to show how many of
these bonds are yet unpaid,
and that it is not certain that
the bonds falling due July first
will be paid promptly.

Another Indian Outrage.
bAN Fbancisco, June C
News arrived this afternoon
that the Indian agent at San
Carlos, Major Larnabee had
some difficulty with the Ap
ptchef, when they undertook
to kill bim'with spears. He
ran to Lieutenant Alwy's tent,
and Almy with six soldiers,
went to the agency with him.
Tbey went intoLamabee's tent,
and Larnabee and Almy came
out of tbe tent, Almy in ad
vance, when the Apaches fired
on them. Almy received three
bullets, passing through bis
body, and fell dead without a
groan. Larnabee was untouch
ed, and retreated into the tent
Four of the six soldiers ran.
One of the two remained, and
was prevented by Conception,
the Mexican interpreter at the
agency. The Apaches fled
across the river instantly. It
is probable that many of them
have taken to the mountains.
A messenger to Governor
Saflbrd, who leit the Reserva
tion half an hour after the oc
currence, says a majority of
the Indians were on the Res
ervation when be left. Eske
Vonzia, a noted chief, had be
corae.angry with the agent sev
eral days previous, and left
San Carlos with bis band some
time before the murder by tbe
Indians. They fired about for
ty shots at Larnabee and Almy.
It has been thought for several
weeks past that an outbreak
was inevitable. Almy was
born in the State of Massachu
setts, and was promoted to First
Lieutenant of the Fifth cavalry,
Fire, Riot, and bloodshed in
London, June 9. A dispatch
from Dublin says a great fire
is raging in that city. The
crowd, whoso object is plunder,
were interfering with the fire

ed out to preserve order. The
latter charged on the mob,
wounding many. The Mayor
oi t&e vny was mc oy one oi

Mr. Solomon Otey, of Salem
Township, Meigs County, came
to his death on Saturday, May

the previous day, in falling
from a hay-loft of his barn
while hunting eggs. Exactly
bow the accident occurred is
not known, a he was unable
to talk until a short time be
fore his death, and then could
give no intelligible account of
the affair, merely remarking
that he "slipped." Ilia age was
about 75 years. lie had been
a citizen of Salem for about 35
years. For quite a number of
years he has been a mail car
rier between Ilarrisonville and

Thx subject of the exempt
ion from taxation of Church
properly and the property of
charitable institutions, is evi
dently to be pressed upon tbe
attention oi the Constitutional
Convention. On this subject
the Cleveland Herald remarks
Our present Constitution
permits th Legislature to ex
etnpt certain properly used for
public worship and institutions
of puplic eharity, irom taxa
tion. And onr statute provides
that church property and char
itable institutions shall pay no
taxes. Under that clause in
the Constitution laws exist
which are so construed as to
exempt from taxation a large
amount of property that can
not be rightfully claimed as
being used solely for public
purposes. In fact immense
values of sectarian property
escape a tax under the gener
al sweeping character of relig
ious worship aad public char
Attention is year after year
more and more directed to this
great wrong towards taxpay
ers, and it has come to be so
serious an evil as to demand
a remedy. ' There is no good
reason why church property
should not pay a tax. But
were the exemption only ap
plied to church property, prop
erly so speaking that is to
property solely used for pur
poses of public religious wor
ship, the evil would not be
very serious. But it is well
known that all manner ot sec
tarian charities come under
the exemption. And that is
not right. In the case cf ele
gant churches why, of course,
those who build such edifices
are able io pay a tax, and up
on tbe ordinary class ot town
ship places of worship, the tax
would be a mere bagatelle.
We have no means of know
ing how much so-called church
property in Ohio is exempt
Irom taxation. But the amount
is enormous, and bo, long as
tnese institutions are not puu
lio institutions within the
broad significance of theten
they should pay their propor
tion of taxeo.
