Germany's peace proposal has In
jected more enthusiasm Into the- Lib'
erty Loan campaign.
American citizens all over the coun
try seem to bo of the belief that the
latest note from Germany Is Hun
propaganda sent out for the ptirpose
of destroying the success of the
Kourth Liberty Lqan.
With this In view Liberty Loan
committees all over the United States
enter upon the last week of the cam
paign Monday with a determination
that the loan will go over the top by
next Saturday night.
In Knox county that determination
prevails.
The members of the Knox county
committee were actively engaged
Monday in Instructing the township
commftteeemen to speed up the work.
In Mt: Vernon the work was taken up
on a larger scale.
Before the close of the week there
may be a house-to-house canvass.
Persons in well-to-do circumstances
wjlio have not purchased Itbertally,
will bo called upon to increase their
subscriptions.
.Members of the Knox county com
mittee expressed the belief Monday
morning that the county would go ov
er the top.
On Monday, William A. Ackerman,
chairman of tho Knox county Liberty
Loan committee, received the follow
ing telegram from D. C. Wills, tho
district chairman of the Liberty Loan
campaign:
"Unbelievable as it Is, we have
been asked today from many
quarters In the district whether
the' loan campaign should dcmiln-l
ue in view of the development of
Germany's socalled acceptance of
peace.
"This astonishing condition
brings us face to face with the
evil purpose of our enemies to
dupe our people and destroy the
loan's success.
"If the Fourth Liberty Loan
falls short, Germany will have
won her greatest victory of the- '
war.
"The hour has struck In which,,
all real patriots in fJtry com-J
munlty must rise in their might
and hurl In the kaiser's face this
answer:
'"Give everything we have If
need be for victory.'
"Liberty Loan committees bear
the great responsibility Of the
hour and must provide the great
leadership of the hour.
"In the name of all that It sa
cred to liberty, let us give the
Hun an answer that will bring
him to his knees. That answer is
a convincing oversubscription to
the Fourth Liberty Loan.
"Let's go and get Itl
"D. C. WILLS, Chairman."

ment The Pittsburgh Plato Class Co. has
started suit against the Smethport
Glass Co., of Smethport, Pa for the
alleged infringement of the patent on
a process known as the "cold bait"
method, used by many glass com
panies and Invented by Arthur E.
Spinasse of this city.
Splnasse, in a statement regarding
the basis of the suit Monday, said
that early in 1910 he constructed the
necessary equipment for experiment
ing and this method has made it pos
sible for the American glass factories
to produce about 30 per cent more
glass, of better quality and nt less ex
pense, than ever before.
A statement was also made b
Spinasse to the effect that glass work
ing has been perfected to such an ex
tent by American glass men that
American companies after the war
need fear no competition from foreign
countries.

AIRPLANE PASSES OVER
CITY SATURDAY NIGHT
ii
A number of persons residing In tho
northern part of the city witnessed
the digbt of an airplane Saturday af
ternoon. It was flying toward (he
'southwest and was probably enroutt
from Cleveland to Dayton.
Tho total par value of stock author
ized for sale in Ohio during the fiscal
year, which ended .tune 30, by the
blue sky department Is ?234,9o0,240,
according to tho (lrst annual report of
the department, made to Governor
Co Saturday afternoon by Judge P.
A. Berry of this city, commissioner of
securities.
During the same period the depart
ment examined 319 applications for
certificates of corporate compliance
and the Issuance of $109,314,026 tinder
such applications was authorized. In
many cases applicants sought tho cer
tification of much larger amounts of
stocks, but, after investigations by
the department, reductions wero re
quired, approximating $50,000,000,
- The total number of all cases pass
ed upon favorably during the year
was 1,216, authorizing the disposal of
$344,2G4,266 securities In this state.
The securities passed upon are those
In corporations whose properties are
located odtslde the state, the business
principally engaged In, being mining,
industrial and real estate; No secur
ities may be sold in the state unless
approved by the department.
'The present legislature made the
blue sky department, formerly under
the jurisdiction of the state bank su
perlntendent, a separate department
and Governor Cox placed Judge Berry
In charge of it. The tremendoun
amount of business which comes be
fore the department is indicated by
the figures set forth In the report. Be
fore approval Is given any securities,
examiners of the department Inspect
the properties of the companies issu
ing the securities to ascertain If they
are as represented.
FUNCTIONS OF LAW
The function of the blue sky law
department Is to prevent Ohio Inves
tors from being fleeced by unscrupu
lous promoters with worthless stocks
to unload upon the unsuspecting and
guileless. Approval is withheld by
the department from nil stocks which
do not look good. However, the fact
that the department may consent to
the sale of any certain stock in the
state does not In itself mean that the
stock will make lots of money for tho
purchaser. It merely means that In
the judgment of the department the
proposition Is not a fraudulent one
and that it may yield a reasonable
profit.
Ohio corporations may be granted
exemption from certification if they
can show that their stock Is to be sold
without commission, and at a total
expense ot not to exceed 2 plus
$500. If practically 100 cents of ev
ery dollar of the Investor's money Is
to go to develop the business of the
company, the department concludes
the case Is not one for Investigation,
although rigid examination is made
to see that the exemption Is warrant
ed. It Is asserted that the people of
Ohio aro saved millions of dollars an
nually, which otherwise would be In
vested In some "fly by night" concern,
visionary oil scheme or in some dis
tant mine with no existence save on
paper, by the blue sky department.
During the past year a certain com
pany sought permission to sell ?5,000,
000 of Its stock in Ohio, the proceeds
to be used in financing the manufac
ture of rubber by a revolutionary pro
cess. The company was refuped per
mission to market Its securities In
this state. Later the company sold
$600,000 of its stock in one city In an
adjoining state having no blue sky
Jaw, and large blocks of stock wero
unloaded upon unprotected investors
in other parts of the state, with tho
result that the entire money paid for
the stock, was a total loss to the In
vestors. WHAT RECORDS REVEAL
The records of the department re
veal many similar Instances of where
gross fraud was attempted in the sale
ot securities in Ohio, all ot, which
were prevented by tho operation of
the blue sky law. The amount of se
curities so rejected since the passage
of this law during the Cox administra
tion In 1913 approximates 165,000,000,
of which more than $25,000,000 was
rejected during the past year.

An important decision was handed
down by Judge Park B. Blair Satur
day afternoon In tbe case of the trus
tees of Monroe and Morris townships
vs. Henry Spohn, in which the court
makes perpetual the temporary In
junction granted the plaintiff.
The plaintiff filed a suit in the
court of common pleas alleging that
the defendant was using a certain
burial ground in Monroe and Morris
townships for agricultural purposes.
The defendant set up an answer In
which ,hQ claimed that he had an
agreement with the plaintiff whereby f
ho was permitted to use the land for
agricultural purposes so long as It Is
not wanted by the trustees for burial
purposes.
The matter was recently heard by
Judge Blair and taken under advise
ment. In the written opinion handed
down Saturday the court holds that
the defendant is enjoined from tres
passing' upon or using the grounds for
agricultural purposes or for any other
purposes, other than to exercise his
franchise to a right of way, which the
defendant claims was granted him by
the plaintiff.

$100.
