Riley has reached the conclusion that "too many cooks spoil the broth." A New York social reform club has proposed the abolishment of mar riage as the most effective way of correcting the divorce evil. According to Col. Riley, the "rabbit" question is the burning Issue of ths hour. We are willing to admit that it's rather "hot" for the Colonel. Tbe Tariff, the Money Question, Mu nicipal Ownership, Trusts and the "United States Senatorshlp have all been relegated to the rear, and the "paramount Issue" of the hour is the "Rabbit" question. MORE ABOUT RABBITS. Since Col. Riley has planted bith of his feet squarely on his "Rabbit ' platform, and bos assumed to preju dice the farmers against Mr. Middles wart, a little history will not come amiss. Upon examination of the House Journal of the 74th General Assembly, we find that numerous petitions were filed, asking the passage of the game law. The signers thereof were not con lined to any particular class they tame from farmers, members of game clubs, professional men In fact, th3 rentiment was practically unanimous. The vote itself, as taken in th House, was evidence of this fact, as the roll-call on the passage of the bill fchowed 7C YEAS, AND 2 NAYS. An analysis of the vote shows that 24 FARMERS oted, ALL In the AF FIRMATIVE. The other five farmer members of the House were absent at the roll-call. In view of these facts, it Is a dif ficult matter to understand as to just how Col. Riley figures out any sort of argument showing Injury to the farm er, but one thing Is certain his vig orous attack on "hunting clubs and sportsmen who reside In the cities" was altogether unwarranted. It Is veiy plain that the Colonel is rattled. Justice Court. The case of Samuel Ongar vs. .lano D. Mason was decided Thursday in Squire McDermott's court. The de fendant was charged with making threats of doing personal violence to the plaintiff and also attempting to carry out these threats. The court decided that the evidence was suffic ient to admit of an examination by the grand jury and accordingly placed Ma fcon's i.oud at 5100. Veather Forecast.

"Noble's" communication bore down very heavily on. the much-mootod Oil bill passed by the last Legislature, and among other things he says: "Ho voted for It and then attempted to excuse himself by slandering our Representative and neighbor, Chris. McKee, by saying that Hon. Chris. McKee voted for It, McKee says mat ho did not vote for It, and the record sustains him." Since there has been so much discus sion concerning this measure, we have taken the pains to examine the omlcal record. By reference to page 1012 of the House Journal of the 74th General as sembly li is found that final action was taken on the bill April 14th, 1900. The recoid reads as follows: "Mr. Pollock submitted the follow ing report: The Standing Committee on Geology, Mines and Mining, to which was re ferred S. D. No. 287 Mr. Wirt having had the same under consideration, re ports It back and recommends its pas sage. The bill was ordered to be engrossed, and read the third time now. The bill was then read the third time. Tne question being "Shall the bill pass?" The yeas and nays were taken and resulted yeas CC, nays none, as follows:" Here follows the list of those voting for the bill, among the number being HON. CHRIS McKEE, REPRESENT ATIVE FROM NOBLE COUNTY, AND ONE OF THE LARGEST OIL OPERA TORS IN OHIO. This bill applies only to lands under laid with coal, and in this matter the State Inspector of Mines decided that the geological survey would be the guide. Under this ruling, Washington County would be effected but very little, if any, even if the bill had not been declared unconstitutional, as the survey shows coal to exist in this coun ty only ,in Wesley township, where there are no oil developments, and in a narrow strip' beyond Macksburg on the border of Noble County. LABOR ARBITRATION. A labor arbitration experiment Is be ing agitated In Massachusetts which will be watched' with Interest by all studenis of industrial problems as well as by employers and employes throughout the country. The object is the establishment o industrial courts intended to settle all disputes between corporations and their employes. These courts, accord ing to tne ptoposed plan, are to be em powered to decide what is a fair mini mum rate of wages iu this or that call ing and" what shall constitute a maxi mum day's work. Massachusetts has an arbitration act in operation now, but it is of very nar row application. The proposed law would broaden the scope of the act so as to Include not only public-service corporations, such as street railways, but also ordinary corporations. It is not the Intention to include individual employers or partnerships. 'ine proposed courts. will never have power to act only upon petition of a certain proportion of the corporate em ployes or of designated public officials, such as the mayor of a city where a dispute should arise, or the governor of a state . The agitation In favor of this move ment was started as a result of the re cent strikes which l,ave so disturbed New England manufacturing inter ests. Mr. Henry D. Lloyd, a well known wmer on social problems, is among tho prominent men who are woiklng in favor of a new arbltiatlon law for Massachusetts. Some of the ideas now practically applied in New Zealand will probably be borrowed for the Bay State. An effective arbitration law which would not stifle the rights of the con tending parties would prove a boon to the public. In nearly all strikes, espe cially those of persons employed by public-service corporations, the public at largo suffers seriously, yet it Is al most helpless to protect itself. Mass achusetts will prove a benefactor to her sister commonwealths If she suc ceeds .n bolving tho strike problem. Miss Hanna's Funeral. Funeral services of Miss Lucy Han na were held Thursday at the GUman Avenue M. E. church, of which the de ceased was a respected membo. Ine services were conducted by Reverends Hawk and Cherrlngton. Tho text of the, former was, "Her sun has gone while It is yet day." Interment wus deferred until today, until the arrival of Mr. J. W. Young, Miss Hanna's fl ancee. Burial will be made at Tunnel. The rites will be strictly private. prnm ''jlfeuarciMwa wk 4 ' -- ' ;-- .iii.i;i.w..fwi.t-nifi.i.ii.1,w.i.,i,. I, .-, --rr- -.i, . . jn i inmnmi a JUV !f?'""',sm.'lJISSk.'M'." : " :lti".

A claim Is made that Hamilton was earlier in tho field than Jefferson in seeking to get possesion of Louisiana. As early as 1870 Hamilton wrote to Washington condemning Spain for ob structing tho navigation of tho Missis sippi, and said that when tho United States got strong enough to compel Spain to open tho river to tho free navigation of tho country "wo ought not to leave In tho possesion of any foreign power tho territories at ths mouth of the Mississippi, which arc re garded us the key to it," Again, in 1708, ho was believed to bo involved in the Miranda filibustering plot, by which Spain was to be driven out by the co-operation of the United States and England, the latter country to get Cuba and the rest of Spain's territory in the West Indies, while the United States should get Florida and all of the ancient Louisiana which was east of the Mississippi. ' It is true, of course, that Hamilton, many years before the purchase of Louisiana, wanted the borders of the United States to be extended south and southwest. But Washington and many others of the American leaders of those days were also expansionists. None of them, however, had any defi nite ideas until about the time of the acquisition of Louisiana about an ex pansion which would carry the coun try's boundaries to the Rocky Moun tains and tho Rio Grande. In the Mi randa plot of 1797-98 it was contem plated to drive Spain away from the mouth of the Mississippi so that all the Spanish territory to the east of the liver, including not only the Florida of today but the West Florida of that time, which was a Btrip extending from Florida proper onward to the Missis sippi, should be annexed by the United States. Nevertheless the credit for the Lou isiana acquisition, which was the first and greatest of all of America's expan sions, belongs to Jefferson. Metaphor ically, Jefferson had been "looking over the ground" from the Mississippi to the Pacific lo,ng before Louisiana was bought. While Minister in France in 17SC he suggested to John Ledyard that he should drift down fiom the Russian possessions on the Pacific to the region whicn we call Oregon in these days, and then strike borne river which he believed would be found leading from the continental divide in the Rocky Mountains to the Pacific, that he should follow up this river to the high lands, and then crossing to the Missou ri, pass down to the United States. The river leading to the Pacific which Jefferson supposed John Ledyard could find by searching for it the Yankee skipper Gray discovered (the Columbia) a few years later in 1792. in the latter year, when Secretary of State in Wash ington's cabinet, Jefferson tried to get the American Philosophical Society to send some explorers across the conti nent to the Pacific. This idea he car ried out when he became President by sending Lewis and Clark and their party up the Missouri and down the Columbia. Jefferson's original pur pose in these explorations was commer cial and scientific to divert to the Un ited States some of the Indian trade then going to England, Russia and other countries, and to discover the physical conformation and the flora and fauna of the continent. It is im possible to strike an American expan sionist who began earlier than Jeffer son unless we go back to Jonathan Car ver, and his period of activity was in the colonial days. Moreover, the cre dit of actually accomplishing the ex pansion belongs to Jefierson, though he was not expecting to get Louisiana at the time, and was seeking to obtain merely the Floridas and New Orleans.
