Wi.sciiESTi:n, O., Sept. IS. A courier
from Sardinia, ten miles west of here,
brings meager Information of a terrific

ance or to vote on local option have
been unsuccessful. Threats havo fre
quently been made to blow up the sa

matter. There is no clow to tho per
petrators. REASON WHY
Tho (lot eminent Depository at Cincinnati
i Wim Discontinued.
Columbus, O., Sept 18. The inquiry
lids eejn madu Wiiy it is that the
checks from the pension office are now
drawn on New York, and the question
wub asked of the pension authorities.
The reply was: "They always have
been." It was further stated that
if any trouble existed, it is ow
ing to the fact that on tho
lbt of last July tho government depos
itories at Cincinnati and Columbus
were discontinued, the money that
usually went to those offices being de
posited in New York. During their
continuance each quarter there was
deposited in Cincinnati S-00,000 and
S175.000 at tho Deshler bank in Colum
bus, but at the samo time the checks
wero drawn on New York. It was
somewhat of a surprise that there
should be any "kicking,'' for any bank
will cash the checks.
