Of $16 Per 1000 Population
To Common Pleas Judges
Based On Judge's Dome Co,,
No! On Sub-Division
Columbus, O., April 30 In a deci
sion handed down today by the su
preme court, the taxpayers of Ohio
are saved $80,000 per year in the al
lowance to common pleas judges.
The law provides in addition to the
stated salary, an allowance of $16 per
thousand population, and it had been
construed as applying to the entire
population of the subdivision in which
the judge was elected. The other con
tention was that It was based alone on
the population of the county in which
the judge resides.
The case In which the decision was
rendered today originated In Morrow
county, the action being In the nature
of a suit to recover from Judge Ed
win Mansfield.
The lower courts found in favor of
Judge Mansfield. The supreme court
reversed the circuit court, and this
means that common pleas judges will
be allowed an amount per year of $16
per thousand population of their home
county In addition 10 their salaries.
The state bureau of accounting
some time ago made findings against
some of the common pleas judges who
had been receiving the allowance on
the aggregate population of their sub
division, and they will now have to
pay back the excess.

Information On Subject Of
Good Hoods
What Was Done in Past And
Prospect For Future
One of the most Important factors
uhlch has to do with the happiness
and prosperity of a people is that of
eaay means of communication. With
out easy means of communication
business cannot flourish nor modern
civilization exist. The Erie canal can
be traced from Its source to Its ter
minus by means of the large centers
of population and thickly settled com
munities along Us route. The people
were attracted to its banks because of
the means of communication it affords.
The large centers of population and
the great business industries of our
country are always to he found along
the railroads and water communlca
tlons of the country. This is not due
to the fact that the railroads and can
als sought out the centers of popula
tion and business districts, but be
cause the people sought out the rail
roads and canals and built large ci
ties and established great Industries.
Tbo railroads and canals of our coun
try have been the forerunners of busi
ness. They have paved the way and
made it possible for all kinds of busi
ness enterprises to follow.
Just exactly what is true of the rail
roads and canals of our country is al
so true of the wagon roads of our
state and county. Just as the railroads
and canals are the forerunners of the
great business enterprise of our coun
try, so must a system of good wagon
roads connecting our cities and villag
es with tbo farms of our state he the
forerunner of the highest comfort.
peace, happiness and prosperity of the
people of our state.
One of the most important ques
tions which came before the Consti
tutional convention for consideration
was the one to make such provisions
as will enable the legislature to es
tablish a system of good roads should
It desire to do so. This question re
ceived most careful consideration and
most thorough discussion in the con
vention. After which consideration and
discussion, the proposal was adopted
by the convention by a large majority
a'nd will be put to the people of the
stale to approve or reject, at the same
time the other propositions are sub
mitted. This proposition will be sep
arately submitted to the people so they
can accept or reject It upon Its own
merits. Just what form of ballot will
have has not been definitely decided,
but It will practically be In the follow
ing form:
For the Issuing of bonds to
build good roads
Against the Issuing of
bonds to build good roads
I 1
What then Is the aboic proposition,
in favor of which, or against which,
the ix-ojile of the Mate will be called
upon to vote within a few mouths?
Briefly It is this: If you vote for the
issuing of bonds, you vote to give the
legislature the authority to issuo bonds
to the amount of $r0.000,00, or In oth
er words to borrow that amount of
money, to be used in the constructing,
repairing and maintaining an Inter-
couuty system of wagon roads through
out the state. Further the system must
be constructed by the state alone out
of the $50,000,000, no county, township
or farm through which said roads pass
to be assessed to help In said construc
tion. Further, the legislature is limit
ed strictly to 3u0.000.00O. not being
permitted to borrow any money be
yond said amount.
In order to understand this pro
position. It will be necessary to re
member that the legislature cannot
borrow money except as it gets the
authority from the constitution. Our
present constitution limits the power
of the legislature to borrow to the
amount of $730,000. The above pro
position, if adopted by the people, will
give the legislature the power to bor
row $50,000,000 but it must be used to
construct, repair and maintain an in
ter county system of wagon roads.
It will be noted that it is to bo an
Inter-county system of wagon roads
throughout the state. That is the
system must extend through all the
counties in tbo state, connecting the
county seats of the county together.
Farther It is to be a system of wagon
reaMs. thus preventing any iart of said
being usod to build railroads or
caaaia. which are often called roads. It
Bin also be noted that even though
the jtHie should appro e the 5ropo?.-
. -f will not t-pconw -a"--ciive im
mediately, but If. the people approve
the proposition, then the legislature
would have the power to borrow the
money and establish the systom, If It
should see tit to do so. All tlio details
would have to bo worked out by the
legislature. It would have to decide as
to the kind of a road, as to how much
of the $30,000,000 would be borrowed
each year, how the roads would be re
paired and maintained, etc.
So much for the proposition. I do
not suppose there Is hardly a man or
woman who would not like to see our
roads Improved, The only question Is
as to the best method to adopt in Im
proving the same. What are some ar
guments In favor of above proposi
tion? '
First: It would make our road
building systematic and uniform.
The state couldulociire experts and
construct the ''most lasting roads
known to ncloneajnml adopt the most
scientific metho'd,of maintaining them
after they are constructed.
Second: The' great centers of pop
ulation and .business enterprise
would be connected with a great net
work of good roads. After which
tho roads leading into this system
would gradually be improved.
Third: It would compel the cities
to bear their Just share of the bur
den to construct the roads and
maintain them. This Is only fair he
cause they reap much of the benefits
to be derived from good roads, as
much possibly, as the farmers, them
selves. The wealthy cities of Cleve
land, Cincinnati and Columbus, with
the other cities, would bear their
proportionate share of the expense.
They do not do this when the farmers
and townships are assessed for the
building of roads.
Fourth: With such a system of
roads the people of our cities would
drift Into the country rather than the
people of the country drift to the ci
ties. The greatest evil of our times is
the country people deserting their'
farms, their churches, their schools,
their out door life, their Independent
existence, (and flocking to our cities
where every vocation and calling Is
full to overflowing. With a system of
good roads, together with the tele
phone, free delivery of malls and al
most all tho modern conveniences at
the door of the farmer, the drift of
population would soon be from the city
to the farm.
Fifth: It would save thousands of
dollars every year to the people of our
country. During the last holiday sea
son the merchants of our country lost
thousands of dollars because the farm
ers could not come to the towns aw
ing to bad roads. Farmers lose thous
ands of dollars every year because
they are not able to market their pro
duce at all seasons of the year.
Sixth: It would greatly enhance
the value of all the farms of the state
Wo would tlnd no deserted farms for
the reason that tho farmer would find
easy accesse to the city and could dis
pose of everything he could ralbo In
stead of being compelled to see much
of it go to waste as ho does now.
Seventh: By so doing tbo cost ol
building the toads will be distributed
over a long period of time and future
generations who will get a part of the
benefits of the roads, will help to pay
for same. i
Now what are tho arguments which
ought to Induce a man, to vote against
the above?
The main argument used is the state
ought to raise the money to build said
system by taxation rather than borrow
the money, and thus avoid the paying
of interest for the money borrowed:
Second: If the state has not such
a large sum of money at its disposal
the same might not bo used to the
best advantage but might be reck
lessly and carelessly used.
Third: That $30,000,000 is an enor
mous sum to one. However, when we
remember that tho taxable value of
tho proeprty of the state Is $6,000,000,
000 the sum is not so large after all.

ments used for and against said pro

This novel case of Ohio vermis
Geo. Hell wns heard by a Jury In
probalo court Monday says the New-
ark Tribune. Parties rcsldo In Wash
ington township, this county, and tho
caeo attracted attention enoiign to
draw an Immense croud from that
section. Hell, tho defendant, when
he was arreste'd on tho nflldnvlt of
his motlier-in-lnw, Mrs. Wince, de
manded a jury, which 13 seldom done
In cases of this kind. Ho also re
tained some alile legal talent from
two counties, Link Russell of this
city and Hon.vWm. M. Koons of Mt.
The complication which makes the
case the more peculiar is that the
parties have been married to each
other two different times. Bell and
the wlfo were married some time ago,
and after a difference separated be
fore any children were born. Later
they patched up their differences and
eloped to Kentucky and were mar
ried. It was offered In evidence that
tho mother of the young wife rather
winked at the proposition to elope.
Since the last marriage a baby has
been born, and it with the mother
and her mother were In the court.
Tlic defense of Mr. Hell Is that the
wife's mother persuaded her to leave
the defendant and that in reality he
wants her to return to him and bo
supported by him.
The trial of the case Is fast if not
furious, nnd. the passages at arms be
tween counsel and the witticisms of
lawyers and witnesses occasionally
evokes some merriment.
Prosecutor Smythe Is otherwise en
gaged, and he prosecution Is in the
hands of Harry D. Baker.
