The Mayor has a pretty heavy job

The fact that diplomatic relations
nro about to bo resumed between Aus
tria and Mexico closes a. third of a cen
tury s estrangement between thoso two
countries. In the series of ovents lead-
No. 3 lng to this unfriendliness tho United
States boro a conspicuous part, though
a part which was highly ngreeablo to
tho Republic of Mexico. Somo efforts,
In fnct, although unavailing, hiivi
been made by tho United States in tho
past thirty years to restore n modus
vlveudl between Austria and our
neighbor in tho other sldo of tho Rio
Grande, but tlmo has accomplished
what the good offices of mutual friends
have attempted in vain.
Napoleon III. was the prime cause of
the trouble between Austria and Mexi
co. Tho French Emperor finding the
liands of tho United States tied
through tho civil wan of 18C1-C5, at
tempted to estnbllsh an empire In
Mexico, with a puppet of. his own at
the head, and the person whom ho se
lected for this role was Maxlmllllan,
brother of the Emperor of Austria,
Francis Joseph. Tho pretext for the
invasion of Mexico was" tlje failure of
that country to pay certain obliga
tions. A French army was put at Max
imilllan's disposal, and by this aid the
feeble government of Mexico, weaken
ed by rebellions and the mutual jeal
ousy of Its popular chleftans, was over
thrown, and the Austrian usurper sol
up an empire In 1804, taking the title
of Maximilian I.
America's hand began to be shown
not long afterward. As soon as tho
Confederacy was overthrown and nor
mal conditions began to be resumed In
the South an army was sent to the Rio
Grande under Sheridan's command.
This warning, accompanied by a
diplomatic protest from President
Johnson to Napoleon in 1SCC, sent the
French troops out of Mexico. Mnx-
Imtllian decided to remain and stand
his chances of maintaining himself,
but he was overthrown In 18C7 by the
Mexicans, aided by the moral support
of tho United States and by tho physi
cal support of some American soldiers,
and tho usurper was executed, though
the United States tried to save him
from tho latter fate. That tragedy

ia's second cigarette tax bill went Into
effect today. Tho first bill, which Im
posed a tax, of $500 for retailing tho se
ductive "cofiln nails," was killed In tho
State Court of Appeals. Tho last Leg
islature passed another bill, which
Imposes a tax of $100 on all dealers In
cigarettes. It Is this law that went In
to effect today. Tho Assessors of the
various districts sent out blanks for
dealers to fill out, and yesterday was
tho last day for their return. Tho re
sult shows that very few licenses will
be taken out. In many counties not u
llcenso has been applied for, and oven
in the larger cities ono nnd two are the
limit. In-Wliocliiip only two dealers
took out licenses and In this city only
one nas been applied for.

Are the Bids and Specifications for First
, National Bank Building.
The plans and specifications for the
new banking building of the First
National Bank are now in the hands
of the contractors. The expectation
is that the work of tearing down tho
old building will be begun by June 1
and that the work of constructing the
new building will be begun thereafter
as soon as possible.
A much needed improvement in Ma
rietta, in fact one that demands
prompt attention, is a substantial
walk leading from Front street to the
boat landing on the bank of the Mus
kingum. The necessity of this has
long been felt, and its great need has
become even more urgent since the
high waters have leceded. At pres
ent the path for tho entire dlstanc
from the street to tho river bank H
covered with a sticky mud almost
shoe-top deep, and people experience
great difficulty In getting to and from
the boats. It is hoped that this im
portant matter will receive prompt attention.
The Leader is In receipt of a letter
from Senator Warren G. Harding, of
Marlon, in which ho states that he is
in no wise a candidate for the Repub
lican nomination for Lieutenant Gover
nor, but that he desires to return to
me state senate. Mr. riorums is a
potential facte In Republican state
politics and his services will be of
great value to the State, whether In
the capacity of Lieutenant Governor
Mr. D. A. Cameron will enjoy t.ie
unique distinction of being the first
independent dil operator from Marict
to to take up a large block of leases in
tuo ueaumont field and without other J
pecuniary resources than his own de

News camo from Columbus Thurs
day that the State Board of Equaliza
tion had rescinded the action of that
bouy, acting as a committee of the
wnole, granting a reduction of ten pet
cent, on tho realty values of ..larletta,
and unless something is done to right
'away the assessment as agieed upon by
the local hoard will stand for the next
ten years. It will bo remembered that
tome weeks ago a Committee of tho
Marietta Board of Trade went to Col
umbus, and was given a hearing by
tho State Equalization Board, at the
conclusion of which the ten per cent,
reduction was agrped upon; Slnc2
then tho Board of Trade Committee
along with the citizens in general, has
been resting secure in the belief that
when final action camo tho ten per
cent reduction would stand, hut it now
develops that'all belief and hope in
that direction was built on a founda
tion of sand. Tho final action of tho
Stato Board was taken without inti
mation to tho Marietta Committee,
which seems strange, to say the least.
The City Council of Lancaster has
appointed a committee of twenty-five

from the Council or Board of Trade,
would be wise, on a conservative es
timate it Is fair to say that the bring
ing of this encampment here woul.l
mean the leaving of at least seventy
five thousand dollars In our midst.
