A a hell of War and its penalties a which is particularly obscene and seditious was printed at the request of senator Jones of Arkansas and who is chairman of the democratic National committee. It was also at senator Jones a request that a the co t of National crime was printed and entitled to the franking mail privileges insuring distribution throughout the country that it attacks. Edward Atkinson confesses to the authorship of the pamphlets and feebly attempts to excuse the obscenity which is so vile that no newspaper would dare print it that he feared he would be w acting in his duty if he did Mot Call attention to unsavoury subjects. Or. Atkinsons Peculiar ideas of what constitutes duty entitles him to be the defendant of criminal proceedings the same As any other of the writers of obscenity that is a social evil and results in untold harm.

Leo s successor an italian Cardinal will no doubt be elected the Rome correspondent of the Chicago i con says that m Wissard the new French ambassador accredited to the Pope it is reported to have said that his Mission was a to see to it that Tbs successor of Leo Xiii was a Friend to France the ambassador May have been misinterpreted but among italian statesmen there is an impression that he is trying to place a Frenchman on the pee of St. Peter. Since the return from Avignon the Popes have invariably been italians but neither Law nor reason is involved and the fact that Italy objects to the idea of a foreign ruler at the Vatican May induce several italian cardinals to favor the views attributed to m Wissard. Germany and Austria Are equally unwilling to see a Frenchman on the papal throne and it appears that their ambassadors have been instructed to oppose such an innovation if the prelates who constitute the majority of the sacred College Are determined to elect a non italian pontiff they May have the option Between a belgian and a portuguese Cardinal hut they Are not to choose among Tho candidates belonging to the first rate nations of Europe or to Spain. That is the demand of the Tripal Alliance. Italy would not object to Cardinal Gibbons but his Grace of Baltimore would receive the veto of the All powerful Jesuit party. The probability is that an italian Cardinal will be elected after All. Five or six names will get votes at the outset but the candidates will gradually dwindle to three or two. Oreglia Verga and Mertel have the greater authority but they Are All three infirm and old and it is not Good policy to have frequent conclave at the present time so the chances Are for Marrocchi Serafio Vannutt Elli Vampa Gotti or Rampolla. These speculations Are not premature. Leo Xiii cannot last much longer. He is suffering from progressive Tony an incurable malady in a Man of 90 years. It is recognized by the committee state Hon. Cyrus Huling chairman of the Ohio Republican state Central committee has announced that he has Given Defiance county two positions of Honor and importance at the next Republican stats convention to be held at Columbus june i and 2. He has appointed or. H. W. Myers assistant sergeant at arms. Major w. C. Barke of this City has been honoured also by being Given the position of doorkeeper and if there should be any contesting delegations seeking to crowd their Way into the convention Hall As there were last year the major will have his hands full. Or. N g Woodward Drew the shot gun last evening that was put up by s w Morse of the Defiance machine works. He held ticket no. 36. The gun was imported and i3 a hard shooter. While John Rethmel of Tiffin township was unloading Corn in the rear of a Groweg s feed store last thursday he lost Bis balance and in some Way fell from the Wagon to the ground i Ion Cating some of the Bones of his right wrist. Or. Rethmel was attended by or. W . It will be some time before he will be Able to use his right hand As the injury is More serious than if the Bones had been broken outright. Amos billow who was a teamster with co. A of the sixth regiment got Home Friday night. He and five other teamsters Bryan men left the regiment at Savannah on monday night. He says there is Little or no sickness in the regiment that the boys had a Fine trip from Cuba Lay five Days in quarantine and will be Home inside of three weeks. Toledo Bee. Cum railway Little doubt but what it will become part of a amp o system new interest is attached to the c l amp m railway project now that it is known that the b amp o people have been negotiating for it. If the c l amp m should pass into the hands of the b o people the line would probable be diverted from the proposed Northern terminal in other words the Clamp m would fill in the Gap in the b amp o Between col Ambus and Defiance and give the Road one of the shortest routes now in use out of Columbus to Chicago. The a amp o was figuring on the Road when the c l in m went into the hands of a receiver some four years ago and any one who will take a map and study it can see at a glance How important this line will become to the b amp o. It is stated by those who Are advised As to what is going on that there is Only 5 cents difference on the Dollar Between the b in o and b c Faurot. It is said he asks 85 cents for the Stock and that the railway company has offered him 80 cents. That is a Small difference and if that is a1 that stands Between the parties the Deal will go through. In event this Deal is consummated Garrett ind., and Chicago Junction will he marked off the map As divisional Points and Defiance will become one of the most important towns on the b amp o railway in Ohio out Side of Columbus. We Are informed that Defiance in a sense becomes the end of the Chicago division this month and that the first National Frank of this City which is a depository of the b amp o company will be called upon to pay out Over $100,000 in wages to the employees of the Road during May. It might be said in this connection that the c l amp m is coming and is now Only a few weeks away. We venture the prediction that when it does come that it will Only be a few weeks later until the great b a o flyers that now ply Between Chicago and Washington will be run by the Way of Columbus. These statements Are premis esed upon the negotiations that have been pending for several weeks and with full knowledge of the great importance of this line to the b amp o system. The following is taken from Continental news of last week the colonel Hobart chief Engineer of the c. L. Amp m. By., appeared on last monday with a Force of men and Laid the track As near to the Nickel plate As practicable until the crossing should be put in. Or. Faurot arrived with the Money to Settle with or. Sealls for right of Way past the Post office. The latter pointed out that by some Means the plat of the right of Way was not made As agreed upon and he could not accept it. This delayed putting in the Crossings on the two roads until the Survey could be corrected or the plat defined definitely. This is being done and the Transfer will he accomplished this evening or tomorrow morning. Harmony prevails and the Road will be completed through to Defiance in a few Days. Chi Hill has Sot his boar trap for an office. We take the following notes from the Hicksville Independent w l Hill of Highland township was in our City yesterday. We Are informed we. Is a candidate for commissioner. It is generally known Over Defiance county that j m Ainsworth is a candidate for state representative. There is but Little use for the editor of the Independent to undertake to introduce or. Ainsworth because there is but few men women or children in this part of the country but what can say we know or. Ainsworth. His nomination would give strength to the party ticket. Or. Zeno Miller of Sherwood and j j Hailey of Defiance Are candidates. We hear quite a number of compliments passed on the Hon. W d Hill of Defiance who delivered a Toast at the disciple banquet at this place last Friday night. Or. Hill gave a Toast on Jefferson. The subject was a familiar one to or. Hill and we Are informed he was in his Best element. There is no More forcible speaker in the Northwest than or. Hill. We regret very much we were called away and did not have the pleasure of attending the banquet. Castonia.

The ladles suggested plans and his reverence a nerve made it go. When Rev. A Edmund Smith of St. Paul a m e Church this City first requested the ladies to remove their hats there was some Adverse criticising and not All the ladies complied with the request. Rev. Matthew s Hughes of Kansas City has had some experience in the same line that is Worth noting although it was the ladies themselves who first suggested the plan of removing their hats while attending divine services. The ladies Aid society approved of the innovation the missionary society concurred and the sewing Circle gave its Sanction. A of there auxiliary Church organizations and All of their members were sorely perplexed however As to How the proposed innovation was to be introduced As to in sure general adoption. This is where pastor Hughes displayed his bravery. He volunteered to relieve the ladies of their self imposed task and they gladly accepted probably under the impression and Hope that he would lose the requisite courage at the critical moment. They were a deceived at the services held by Rev Hughes last sunday when their pastor displayed unaccredited intrepidity and knowledge of woman and her weakness.
