CLEVELAND O Sept weeks ftfo the Kepublicans announced that they ad discovered that a township in Hamil ton county hitil been omitted in the redis tricting not passed in March and created a temporary of excitement Giving to the xreat political interests involvud and the fact that Htichanerror if made would necessarily Invulldutu the act As noth ing further was said about it the an nouncement was soon dismissed us a cam paign scare Some pertinent inquiries ad dressed liy tiie secretary of atate to the Cincinnati board of elections have revived the excitement and developed a silnation that besides being very curious is fraught with great political possibilities IVhero In Township The secretary of state demands to know thei status of Storrs township Hamilton county There is no such township on thu map although once it included a con siderable part of what is now tiie city ol Cincinnati But there is a Storrs town ship and its electors vote in what is offi cially known as Riverside precinct Storrs township and it elects a justice of the peace and n constable In IBUJ onehalf or thereabouts n what then remained of the township was annexed to Cincinnati city and in 1SS7 to Cincinnati township so as to nmko tbo city and township of Cincinnati coextensive The remaining half was ther and is now included in the Incorporated village of Riverside a sub urb of Cincinnati

voted in Riverside villain arid the territory was considered a part of the Second congres sional district Fnricottnn hut Still hi Xxlsttiiicii The redistrictinn act of last March specifically names
