Montgomery. Fur Member Hoard of Public. Works J. A. STATES, Allen. Dayton, O., June 22. Judson Har mon was renominated for governor at the second ' session of the Ohio Democratic convention. The nomina tion was made amidst an outburst of enthusiasm, the delegates paying the governor the honor of unanimously renaming him leader by a rising vote. Atleo Poraerene, the Canton states man, was nominated for lieutenant governor. He was loth to accept the nonor, but was prevailed upon by the governor End other friends and In the end accepted the nomination. It was conspicuously a Harmon convention, and his personality and Influence were shown In everything which was both said and done, and while this influence was Judiciously and tactfully used, It was none the less effective, being sufficient to pre vent a senatorial Indorsement and keeping the convention from commit ting itself to any injudicious or un democratic actions. Mr. Cohan's nominating speech was laudatory of the governor, saying he had given his attention to the needs of the people and the business of his office, instead of to building up a po litical machine. He gave an example of his honesty, his use of the veto power, which he had exercised with out fear or favor against unwise and improvident legislation. "He is a man with the courage of his convictions. H Is the most ap proachable man in public life today. YOUNG LAD Hi Traced to This City Furnished With Liquor and Enticed Prom Home. At the Instigation of the ollicers of Dayton, (.'has. Young, aged 20, and Carl Kley, aged 17, both of the Gem City, were taken In charge by Night Policeman Mellroy in this city early Monday morning. John Kley, father of the latter lad, came here Monday noon and took the Kley lad back with him, while Young wai held until Mon day evening, when Juvenile Oiliccr Harris, of Dayton, came to this city and took him in charge. Youk was wanted for furnishing liquor to and en ticing the Kley lad to leave his home. They disappeared from Dayton last Sunday afternoon, and it was late that evening before the Dayton police found that they had boarded the north-bound excursion on the Delphos branch of the C, H. fe D., having purchased return tickets to this city. Marshal Weber was at once notified and given a de scription of the young men. He turned the case over to Night Policeman Mc llroy, bnt the excursion on the C, H. dc D. train was in and inquiry at hotels and restaurants here failed to locate them. Just as Mcllroy was ready to go off duty Monday morning he wont down to the Fischer meat market, South Main street, and there ran onto parties rj BAD COMPANY hgoet He la a Democrat In every liber 01 his being.

The platform was read by the chairman of tho resolutions commit tee, J. Springs McMahon of Dayton Applauso followed the reading of the planks favoring a 10 mills tax levy; the election of senators by dl rect vote of the people; the initiative and referendum; taking tho judiciary out of politics; the tariff; the $1 a day pension law, and condemning Cannon for refusing to allow it to come to a vote; denouncing Dallln- ger, and Indorsing the plank touching on the Creamer question, calling at tention to the larger Interest returns on public funds. These parts of the platform, he, said, were reported by all but the Twentieth and Twenty-first districts. Tho constitutional convention piann was reported unanimously, and then was read the Harmon presidential plank. The whole convention rose to Its Net to applaud, the Cleveland del egation being the notable exception, and. not a Clevelander arose. Newton D. Baker of Cleveland then took the stage to read tho senatorial Indorsement plank. Tho Cleveland delegation and their friends made all kinds of noise to welcome him. Mr. Baker, before reading his report, ask ed the convention to allow Governor Campbell to take the chair, which he did, Mr. Pomerene retiring, leading to the belief that Baker would try to stampede for Pomerene's Indorse ment. Baker made a rattling good speech, which brought out lots of applause and brought cries of "You're all right." Baker's efforts were In vain, the minority report being voted down, 254 yeas, nays 840. The convention then adopted the majority report. The committee on credentials re ported there were no contests, and the committee on permanent organ ization recommended that the tempo rary organization be made permanent, which was agreed to. The committee on rules and order of business re ported that after the committee re ports nominations be made, begin ning with governor, nominating speeches limited to 10 minutes, and not more than two seconding speeches. The Nominations. The committee on resolutions not being ready to report, the nomination for governor was proceeded with. Ex-Senator Cohen of Cincinnati pre sented tho name of Governor Har mon.

Sugar Beet Crop Looks Promising Our old friend Henry Konnabaum, of Franklin township, who was in Mon day to make his annual renewal to The Democrat, was enthusiastic over crop of sugar beels being cultivated in his neighborhood under the direction of the factory people at Paulding. He says the growing beets present a beau tiful sight and the manufacturers are more than pleased with the growing crop. There are some ninety acres un der cultivation, eight neighbors besides Mr. Konnebaum contributing to the acreage mentioned Ben Dabbelt, Frank Dorsten, Chas. Dorsten, Chas.A. Burdge, O. Miller, Oeo. Fomb, Wm. Axe and Clinton Lane. This fair Mer cer County farmers will be able to get a line on the merits of the sugar beet as a revenue producer, its adapt ability to the soil and a few other things they are not now particularly wise on.

Web ster, Prosecuting Attorney of Lucas County, Attorney General Denman holds that County Commissioners may Improve roads within municipalities the same as outside municipalities, but that this fact does not deny the rights of . the municipalities to improve the same roads as city streets. The Commissioners of Lucas County contemplate the improvement of a road which is the boundary line between the city of Toledo and Adams town ship, and were doubtful concerning their authority.

Last Thursday, June 10, at the home of the bride's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Pierce, near Neptune, occurred a very pretty wedding, when Miss Grace Pierce became the bride of Mr. E. C. Cole, of Spencorville, in the presenceof the immediate relatives and a few near friends. At high noon the ceremony was per formed, tho beautiful day making it preferable to out doors rather than in the house, and they took tboir position under the branches of a large tree on the lawn, when Rev. Daniel Stecker, of Spencerville, pronounced the words that made their lives as one. Mr. and Mrs. John Gregg, of Mendon, the lat ter a twin sister of the bride, acted as bridesmaid and groomsman. Follow ing the ceremony came congratulations, and then a wedding dinner, prepared and served as is only possible to be done by those on the far in, and that it was fine was evidenced by the hearty eating by al'l present. The bride is a charming young lady, highly respected by all her large circle of acquaintances, and one well equip ped to take the duties of a home. Mr. Cole, the groom, is a prominent con tractor and builder, and enjoys the confidence and respect of the entire community where he resides.

Along communication on the sub ject of taxation, published recently in the Ironton Irontonian, was written by Thomas L. Colleit, one of the promi nent citizens of Ironton. In the course of the communication Mr. Collett says: "Governor Har mon's Idea to make one per cent, the maximum limit of taxation in Ohio was most certainly the correct view of the tax question." After discussing some of the weak points of the tax limit law as It was enacted by the legislature, Mr. Collett further says: "To illuslmto the taxing power of existing law the new law, one and one-half per cent, limit; and the Har mon Idea, one percent, limit, w e give this illustration, using my own home as a basis of coiiiparlron. "My home in now listed at $J,(iO(l, about 10 per c ut. of lis actual value, on which I pay h tax rule of 3 (id p-r cent., making my annual taxis f:i4.IJ per an mi in.

And the Harmon idea would have meant a saving to me of f:i2."0 as compared to the new law, one and one-half per cent, tax lifhit. RECAPITULATION. Taxes on my home at 40 per cent. value J2,i;00.()0 At 3.02 per cent 94.12 Taxes, new law, full valuation of home f 0,500.00 At 1 1-2 per cent 97.50 Harmon's idea (bill defeated) valuation ii,500.00 At 1 percent 65.00 "From above it will be readily seen that, while the rate of taxation under the new law is lower, the amount of MONEY PAID FOR TAXES IS LARGER; hence the 'tax revision' seems to have an upward tendency something like the recent tariff revis ion. The Harmon Idea meant lower rate of taxation and also less money actually paid for taxes." The extract quoted shows that Mr. Collett understands perfectly Gover nor Harmon's position on the tax limit law and the manner in which the act was mutilated because tbe Republican majority in the legislature was unwill ing to follow the governor's advice. Governor Harmon permitted tbe law to go into effect without his signature rather than have no limit at all upon the tax rate. He intends to point out the defects in the tax limit law In his message when the next legislature as sembles. "Ill L J) Play to Produced at Mendon, Wabash and Neptune by Special Request.

Celina desired the convention and between the V S ' V "" " ' '' ' ' " " 1 r : i wi j i , I i "v : . ; . ; Ex-Governor Hanley, of Indiana, who will make principal ad dress at Celina's big Fourth of July celebration. Celina and Grace church delegates there was manifested a keen rivalry. Rev. Weaver, of Kpworth church, Lima, gavea very interesting talk upon "Our Young People and the Social Question. " This address was thought ful and applicable. It met the life of today and applied religion, the work of the church, to the demand of our young people. The address merited great praise. One half hour was then devoted to representatives of the Leagues telling a few things tliat had been particular ly helpful to theirchapter. Much ben efit came from this interchange of ideas. "That tuiet Half Hour," over which Rev. Aseham, of Delphos, presided was one of the most beautiful and worship ful periods of tbe convention. The talk was ethical and deeply de votional, Rev. Ascham never appears before any audience but that he im presses most sincerely. A brief song opened the afternoon session. Rev. Burton offered prayer and Miss Mabel Allen sang "There is a Land." Election of ollicers followed, result ing as follows: Pres. LeDoyt Crosby, Van Wert. First Vice Dale Rice, Celina. Second Vice Mrs. K. R. Kennedy, Spencerville. Third Vice Mrs. Willard Tipton, Lima.

Tbe Ladies Quartet of the Church of Van Wert Bang "Come to Our Hearts," by Macey. This number was given out of compliment to Bishop Anderson who followed with his sermon on the theme, "God is Our Refuge and Strength." The sermon was a noble discourse on the application of religion to the every life and its applicance to Men's business life, their entire rela tion to others as well as an exposition of God's tender watchful care. At 7:30 in the evening the vast Aud itorium was filled with an audience anxious to hear Bishop Anderson in his lecture, "Life a Conquest," and al though the evening was warm and the lecture one hour and twenty minutes in length the Interest never for an In stant abated. The speaker held the attention with a grip that is unswerv ing. He gave to those privileged to attend a rare opportunity to hear bril liant orating unparalleled wit and pro found thought. Bishop Anderson has endeared himself to people of the First M. E. church by his visits here as well as the large number of others who have beard him. Preceeding the lecture the chorus choir of the church sang "The Deus Miseratur" by Van Vogerich and "Peace f Leave With You," by J. Vas ley Roberts.

The stockings are brown ankle, with upper white, while the belts are w hite. They are nobby. Come have a look Sunday afternoon at 2:.!0. Rotten! Rotten!! Rotten!!! Oh, you Grum Grandpa. It was a lovely game that Young Joe Fredericks put up against those hard hitting Wapak Reds last Sunday afternoon at Mereelina Park, outpitch ing Big Joe Wentz, the mighty league twirler of the Lancaster Ohio State League club, but it was the rottenest of rottenly umpired games ever wit nessed on the local field and Marshal Weber, an old time pitcher, who ought to be able to see better, was hissed and Lhooted from t lie time he called Zang- lein s nil to leu iair in me nun uniu he drubbed the Kids again when they had a chance to tie the score in the ninth, calling Burris' fair line drive over the initial sack foul. Then the only thing that saved him a drubbing was the fact that he carried his copper badge on his vest front. The visitors led off in the opening inning, Kichler singling to right after Kinninger had struck out. Hainan was out on a grounder to Bets, but Pfenning.who seldom finds the sphere, dropped one In center for two bases, scoring the first run. Again in the third Kichler led off with a two-bagger to left. He was ad vanced on an out and came home when Pfenning hit a slow one in the infield. Then came the fifth round, and Mr. Weber got in the game Kinninger again opened up and fanned for the second time. Fredericks, thinking to get over high place, let Kichler walk. Home Run Uaman fanned. With the third out stored away, Hobby fumbled n easy grounder from Pfenning's bat. Continued on Page Eight.
