Council met in regular session
last Tuesday night with al
members present but Myers
In the aosence of Mayor Ken
ney,' President pro tem. Len
nartz opened the meeting. Fol
lowing the reading and approval
of minutes of the previous meet
ing, Edmund Drandt presented
to council, in behalf of the Duck
land Milling Co., the plat of the
new addition just west of the
Cincinnati Northern Railroad
The plat was accepted and the
Solicitor was directed to draw
an ordinance approving samev
A petition for grading and
macadamizing the north end of
Sugar street, signed by almost
every one of the residents in the
two squares recently opened,
was presented to council. But
that was as far as it got. De
spite the fact that this street is
only partly graded and nothing
better than a mud hole, which
- Fire Chief Weisman stated he
had found almost impossible to
get through with his wagons
when recently called by an alarm
of tire from the Sim Groves
home, council had to pigeon
hole the matter because of lack
of funds to do any work.
This condition of affairs
brought on an animated discus
sion, which finally resulted in
the Solicitor being instructed to
prepare a resolution for passage
at the next meeting, authorizing
the issuance of refunding bonds
in something over $15,000.
Councilman Lennarts stated
that the Citizens Bank had on
hand $5,000 highway improve
ment bonds, due the first of May,
but that the town had no money
in the depositaries to meet the
demand. City Treasurer George
was also present and stated that
he had only a little over a thou
sand dollars in hand to pay off
the vouchers that were present
ed to him. In order, therefore,
to get rid of the highway im
provement bonds that were past
due, the Solicitor was also in
structed to prepare a resolution
for the issuance of a certificate
of indebtedness in the sum of
$5,000. ,
The City Engineer was in
structed to furnish grade and
set grade monuments for streets,
alleys and sidewalks in the new
Buckland Milling Co. 's addition
and do the work post haste, as
the owners wish to get the
streets graded as soon as poss
ible." Merchant Fred Olnhausen was
again before council in regard to
over front footage assessment
on his property on North Main
street. The clerk then read a
resolution correcting the error,
and same was passed.
A resolution was then read
and adopted transferring $130
from the general fund to the
safety fund to meet the expense
of the extra fireman recently ap
pointed. Another was read and
adopted transferring $350 from
the general fund to the service
fund for the building of the tool
shed and supply house being
built by the city on the town's
lot on West Warren street.
The action of the building
committee in awarding the con
tract for erecting this building
to Grant Karr for his bid of $383,.
was approved.
The clerk then read the vari
ous reports of village depart
ments for the past month, and
same were all accepted. t
Councilman LeBlond stated
that he had been asked by mem
bers of the Shakspere club about
council charging the club for
use of the opera-house for the
lecture course members, as they
had been informed a charge
would be made by council next
season. All members of coun
cil expressed surprise at such
statement, and immediately and
unanimously passed a motion
granting the club the free use of
the hall. Then it adjourned.
POLITICAL
ETCHINGS
George II. Preston, of Frank
lin township, one of tho mem
hers of the present Board of In
firmary Director, is a candidate
for renomination. Tho other
two members are serving thei
second terms, and, of course, are
not candidates.
It is the custom of the Demo
crats or tins county to give
every man two terms of office if
his conduct has been such as to
commend him to the people, and
we feel confident that Mr. Pres
ton has given his office such
care and attention as to merit a
unanimous renomination next
Tuesday. See that he gets
your vote.
Put your cross mark in the
square in front of Mr. Preston's
name, then make your second
and third choice from the re
maining candidates.
The Standard has nuthin
agin Air. uoeice personally, so
it says. Then it must be polit
ically too much of a Democrat
too democratic to suit its
tastes. It is quite true Mr.
Goeke favors giving each voter
a chance to vote for whom he
pleases. It was Mr. Goeke who
advocated the primary plan four
years ago and induced the Dem
ocrats of this district to give it
a trial give the people a chance
to say direct, without the inter
ference of a lot of political de
generates, whom they wanted as
representative. Direct voting
evidently is not to the Standard's
iking. The rotten delegate sys
tem, where a small gang of men
can be assembled in some re
mote corner of the district and
buy and sell to the highest bid
der weU, that day is over, and
thanks to such men as J. Henry
Goeke.
The Standard very evidently
believes that the Democrats of
Mercer County are a lot of polit
ical asses and chained to the
Standard's chariot.
Listen to this idiotic stuff:
"If we are bound, gagged and
delivered in a congressional
deal, we are entitled to yet say
who we want for county office."
So it's a county office for
brother-in-law Fishbaugh that
is causing all the trouble.
If Mr. Goeke and his friends
would only stay at home and let
Mr. Cunningham and his friends,
Mr. Welty and his friends, Mr.
Marshall and his friends, Mr.
Robeson and his friends and Mr.
Shappell and his friends meet
and talk with us and ask for our
votes and support, wouldn t it
be nice?
Wouldn't be nice if all the can
didates for Surveyer would quit
askmir lor votes and get on tne
earth for brother-in-law?

To Whom It May Concern
It has been falsely reported by some
that I was not a candidate for County
Surveyor. The motive of the partis
so doing may be judged, and I wish to
say that at no time did 1 authorize the
statement. It has been my desire to
call on all of the parties that wen, my
friends ten years agoj when I was a
candidate, and others as well. Sick
ness in my family and lack of money
as forbidden me doing so.
In announcing that I am a candidate
and in the race to stay, I wish to state
that I am In no way associated with
any political ring, contractor or set of
contractors. I make this pledge, if
nominated and elected, to serve as one
would wish to be served, and Bolicit
your vote on this plain ana Droaa
platform. Very truly yours,"

A
T
Attendance Large and Intense
Interest Shown Program
Well Carried Out.
By Miss Maude Spriggs, Secretary.
The Washington Township Sunday-school
convention, which convened at the State
I.I ne Lutheran Church last Sunday, May a,
was a success In every detail. All assigned
to part on the program responded wltb ex
cellent addresses. The house w as filled to
Its fullest capacity, while an active inter
est was manifested by all present. The fol
lowing Is the program as carried out:
The afternoon session opened with song
"Ownwiird Christian Soldiers," followed by
Scripture reading and devotional hyGeo.
L. Su'hroyer. Song. "Send the Light." was
then sung.
Prof. W. S. Younger, of I'ellnii, addressed
the assembly upon tbe subject of "Chris
tian Citizenship." Christian citizenship
is the product of Christian character. The
one essential In creating Christian citizen
ship is to have Christian homes, as chil
dren come Into homes without sin. The
Sundiiy-school Is a means to create Chris
tian citizenship, as children of all ages are
permitted to attend. The home, the school
and the church are the foundations of
Christian character, the basis of Christian
citizenship.
Roll call and report of schools, of w hlch
four schools responded to roll-call, and two
as to report, the State I. Ine Sunday school
taking the lead as to representatives and
flnanclal standing.
Hound table topics were next discussed by
different members of organizations. "Is It
well to pledge scholars by signature against
the saloons and the use of Intoxicating
drinks?" discussed by Kev. Butler and Har
vev Fennlg.
"What are the best methods for reaching
and conserving the spiritual harvesfof the
school?" discussed by W. S. Younger.
"Decision day-Are stated decision days
desirable?" Kev. Kauders.
"Missions Is the Sunday-school awake to
Its strength and opportunity as a mission
ary force?" discussed, by Rev. Bauders, Rev.
Butler and Mrs. Nicholas Schroyer. Song,
Love of Light." followed by an address,
"The Adult Bible Class," by Rev. S. F. Bau
ders. The little cloud of the "A. B. C..-' or
the adult Bible class, started at Toronto In
11)06 and Is now lighting the whole world.
The adult Bible class Is the older members
of the Sunday-school at work. The adult
Bible class as a complete body consists of a
President, Vice President, Secretary,
Treasurer, three committees and a recog
nized certificate from the State. Its aims
or duties are principally Bible study, re
ligious study, -and social study. Its motto
"Only once a stranger."
Rev. J. H. Butler, In his address, spoke of
the great revolution taking place In the
day scllool and the Sunday-school, but the
one factor needed to be revolutionized Is
the spiritual revolution. Crown your edu
cation wltb a knowledge of God. Skill and
science have taken place In the secular
school, but not in the Sunday-school. The
SuuUay Scbool Is a "gateway" to the
church.
After singing an offering was taken, fol
lowed by dismissal by Rev. Bauders.
The evening session opened at 7:35 by the
Presldont. Harvey Fennlg, with song,
"Leaning on the Everlasting Arms." fol
lowed by devotional bySupt. S. Wilkin, of
Oellna, and after singing Rev. Rice, of Ce
lina. responded with an address on "Sun
day-school and some things that make
them good."
The Sunday-school, he said, has become
one of our greatest institutions. Its value
to the church caunot be overestimated. A
great progress has been made in the Sunday-school,
f rem Its primitive state to the
present day. The weak factor In our Sunday-school
at present is more machinery
than force. Some things that make them
good: Community Interest, good superin
tendents, earnest and faithful teachers, all
filled with vim, energy, earnestness and en
thusiasm. Proptness ,1s one of the best
means to success.
The minutes of the previous meeting were
read and adopted as read.
The church and the Sunday-school was
next discussed by Riv. Marvin, pastor of
the State Line Church. The Sunday
schools are too scattered and need to be
more closely associated with the church.
The Sunday-school should perform the
teaching of the church.
"The Principle Thing," an Inspiring ad
dress to the young people of the communi
ty, and older ones as well, was delivered by
Prof. S. Wilkin, of Celina. The principle
thing wisdom. In all your getting, get
wisdom. Where Is the way to wisdom? The
fear of the Lord Is the beglnulngof wisdom.
Organization In the Sunday-school Is essen
tial, but Mr. Wilkin Illustrated by a story,
that organization was of no use without
steam or power. Along with the principle
thing, grow In the Image of God and get bis
spirit within you.
" After remarks by the President the
meeting was dismissed by Rev. Rice.
Dr. and Mrs. Clyde Weiat.of Col
umbus, were the week end guests of
the former's parents, Mr. and Mrs.

Celina 5 Ft- Recovery 4
There are many and various defini
tions for the greatest of joys, but they
ail fade away in the minds of local
fahs when tliey look back over the
score sheet of last Sunday's contest
with Ft. Recovery at Mercelina park
and see what might have been, and
then joyfully come to the last halves
of the eighth and ninth innings and
then to the final finish of the twelvtb.
When it comes to coming in from
behind and snatching victory from ap
parent defeat never again let it be said
that the "Kids" are wholly helpless.
The final score was only 5 to 4, but
Celina was on the top side of the mar
gin, and had overcome a handicap of
three runs in the closing innings of the
usual time ailoted contests, setting
down the visiting kickers so bard that
their language was brutal and violent
as they journeyed back to the hotel,
and they were still rampageous when
Mananger Jimmie Big Injun and Cap
tain Heap Much Big Mouth Pausch
gathered the tribe together and toted
tbem-oM to their tepee at the Fort.
The contest was one of those which
makes up for much that has gone
before, and the half hundred fans, who
the previous Sunday had been relieved
of their two bits, only to see a magnifi
cent downpour of rain, were more than
satisfied as they left the grounds at the
close of that third extra inning last
Sunday.
For five rounds it was a brilliant
combat, starred by courageous pitch
ing and grand fielding by both clubs.
Walls, the visiting southpaw, was
flinging them over so fast that the local
lads were helpless, and when they did
occasionally take a crack at the ball it
was blocked on its course by one or
another of the visitors. At the same
time young Ellis was doing nice work
for the locals, and his support, with
but a couple of instances, was perfect.
So, when the visiting pow-wow men
jumped into a nice fat lead in the sixth
and seventh innings, the game looked
to be a goner.
Up to that time the Kids attempted
but one steal on Houser, and when
they opened up on. this part of the
game in the eighth, matters took on
another hue.
The visitors jumped away in the first
round, Borman, the first man np,
scoring with nobody down. It looked
bad for a minute, but, fortunately, that
was the limit to the round. Borman
singled to right, stole second and got
around on a fumble by Wennig, who
failed to get Betz's throw on Wagner's
sacrifice. Pausch flew out to the Rab
bit at third and Houser was taken in
on a deep fly to Mayer. Manager
Coughlin then singled to right, but
Wagner was held at third. Then Ellis
pulled out by fanning Franklin. The
Kids, however, got this back in the
second, when, with one man out, Walls
walked Wenning. He went to second
on a fumble of McKirnan's hot groun
der, and scored on Newcomb's two
bagger. But they couldn't get one
better. Mayer and McComb struck
out. .
Everything went along almost one-two-three
then until the sixth, although
Myers saved a run by a most brilliant
one-band catch of a fly in the second,
and Mayer's relay of Coughlin's long
hit in the fourth, which caught the
runner ta 3d, another. Wagner started
off with a fly to left, which Mayer
failed to get. Betz then missed an
easy chance for a double, and two men
were safe when he let Pausch's groun
der glide between his feet. Houser
hit to sliort, but the ball rolled so slow
that Myers' attempt to catch Wagner
at third failed and the bases were full.
Coughlin hit clean to center aud Wag
aer scored, but Burris' throw held
Pausch, who a moment later was
caught between the bases. Ellis the
