the state treasurer an Importance
at once obvious and Impressive.
Ohio voters are already familiar
with the splendid record In office
of the present treasurer, David 8.
Creamer. Mr. Creamer retires
with the expiration of his present
term. Mr. Brerman has been
cashier for Treasurer Creamer for
four years. He has been the
strong right arm of the treasurer'
In making effective the many re
forms Introduced In the office.
Mr. Creamer gives him much
credit for the- part he has had In ,
the application of reforms and the
Introduction and development of
modern Ideas In the workings of
the office. Brerman stands for
what Creamer has done and prom

dmmissloiiar Strodi Stops
Frauds On Coaswnars.
Although 70 years ago the general
assembly created weights and meas
ures standards and provisions vera
Biade from time to tine for stopping
cheating by weighing devices, State
Dairy and Pood Commissioner Strode
la the first officer to conduct a sys
tematic statewide campaign to stop
the frauds perpetrated by unscrupu
lous dealers.
A New York expert testified before
an Ohio senate investigating com
' mlttee that the consumers In this
state were robbed of $10,000,000 an
nually. To eliminate this enormous
waste, which is responsible to a cer
tain extent for the high cost of liv
ing, Commissioner Strode had life in
jected into the dead weights and
measure law.
When Strode took office Ohio
seemed to be the dumping ground for
incorrect weighing and measuring de
vices. For ninny years the secretary of
state wob custodian of the standards
furnished the state by the federal
government. Later the professor of
physics of Ohio State University was
designated by statute as state sealer
of weights und measures.
With the support of the press the
I utile WH8 aroused to the Importance
of this work, and In 1910 the general
assembly designated the State' Dairy
an4 Food Commissioner as State
Realer, but overlooked the appropria
tion necessary to make tbia change
effective. ,
The law made It the duty of the
State Dairy and Food Commissioner,
ence every three years, to require
each auditor and city or village , sealer,
In this state, to present all standards
of weights and measures In their pos
session to him for comparison; and
generally he was charged with the
enforcement of all weights and meas
ures laws.
There was a defect In that neither
the Btate scaler nor hla deputies, the
tounty sealer nor his deputy, nor the
rlty sealer were authorized or re
quired to compare and seal any
weights or measures except such as
were brought to them for that pur
I.oae. It was apparent that If the pur
chasing public and dealers In mer
chandise were to receive the benefits
evidently Intended by the framera of
the welghtu and measures laws, it
was necessary that state and local
sealers should be empowered to go
cut and inspect scales, weights and
measures wherever they were used or
maintained for use; to abolish the
fee system and place the deputy sealer
on a straight salary; to brim; com
)ufjng scak-H under the Jurisdiction of
the sealers; to require that certain
commodities must be sold by avordu
pols weight or numerical count; and,
finally, that at least a modest appro
priation should be made to the end
that the weights and measures laws
might become effective.
The changes in the law as above
outlined were made by the general
assembly, and State Sealer Strode at
once put new life Into the weights
end measures department by Issuing
a circular cf Instructions to all coun
ty and city sealers. '
It was well paat the middle of June,
911, when this work was Inaugu
rated, but the response to the circu
lar was immediate and effective and
the state department sad the instant
co-operation, of most v of the county
and city sealers.
In little inoro than one year since
these changes became effective, sixty
eight counties have secured new
standards and the sealera are dill
Cently and enthusiastically at work.
In this short tlmo the department has
demonstrated that .the work of cor
recting conditions with reference to
weighing and measuring devices is
among the most important in the
riato. The public Is just awaking
to this far', nnd a united public sen
timent will make the task of the
.;ilers much easier. The state sealer
Ik vigorously keeping' up. this cam
paign of education' andls gratified to
Vnow. that ho has the earnest support
