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.

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

was at once notified and given a de
scription of the young men. He turned

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

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

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
Baker's efforts were In vain, the
minority report being voted down,

The convention then adopted the

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.

The Commissioners of Lucas County
contemplate the improvement of a road

Of Tax Question Was Plan of
(Jov. Harmon That C.O.l'.
Legislature Ignored.
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

"According to above 'listing' of my
home at 10 p r d lit. of its value, the
real value would) he (ii,."i(MI. h'-nce,

whereas, had Harmon's Idea, one per

percent, on fii,.'no real value of my
home, would have been vinly fi' per
annum, $29.12 less than I am now pay
ing under t'.i 02 per cent. rate. 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.

At 3.02 per cent 94.12

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
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

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,

Fourth Vice Mr. Frank Houzter,

from the convention and the committee

support to a hospital project in Java,

among to different leagues.
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

Celina this year promises fair to have
one of the largest Fourth of July cele

state. But unllkeother bigcelebratioua
it will tend towards the safe and sane
celebration of (lis big national holiday.
It will be no big crowd of rowdyism
and drunks this year but thousands
upon thousands of Sunday-school
children and many grown ups.
The day will open during the morn
ing with a grand fiotila parade bearing
the crowd of Sunday-school workers.
Contingent of school children from

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.
