The Dow liquor tax Bill which passed the Senate and House last we Eek and is now a Law supposing course that the body now in session at Columbus assuming to be the shite Senate has any Legal authority to act As such. If the action that body As now constituted is competent legislative action the keepers saloons May prepare to tax their business when the june tax is due. The new Law is very similar to the Scott Law hut is framed in such a Way that in the opinion the authors the constitutional objections found in the Law will not apply. As the supreme court now has a majority elected mainly upon liquor taxation it is Safe to presume that the Law As passed will be upheld by the court and those who Are affected by it will have to the tax quit the business. The tax is made $200 general Saloon business $100 where Only malt and vinous liquors Are sold. But if any one returns his business As that Selling malt and vinous liquors Only and is afterwards caught Selling anything else he will have to $250 Mote. The tax May be paid in two instalments one in june and one in december As other taxes Are paid. If however the business is Only carried part the year the tax shall he a pro rata part the whole amount hut cannot in any ease he less that $25. The tax is made a Lien upon the goods and chattels the person persons operating the Saloon and shall take precedence other liens mortgages claims. Upon failure to the tax the county treasurer shall sell the goods and chattels belonging to the Saloon admitting no outside claim whatsoever. If not enough is realized in this Way the remainder the tax becomes a Lien the real estate the Saloon. The revenues arising from this tax shall go three fourths to the City town Village we Here the business is carried and the remainder to the county poor fund if there is no county infirmary to the poor fund the township Village City where it Wras collected. The three fourth Given to the City Village where collected shall he divided half and half Between the police fund and the general fund if there is no police fund goes to the general fund. Drug stores Are allowed to sell without tax upon a a prescriptions issued in Good Faith by reputable physicians in Active practice for exclusively know n mechanical pharmaceutical sacramental saloons must he closed sunday upon penalty Fine $100 and imprisonment for thirty Days hut City councils May open the saloons according to their pleasure sunday for the Selling malt liquors and native wine. A local option clause provides that any municipal corporation May at its pleasure restrain regulate saloons close them up entirely. These Are the main provisions the new Law. General master Workman in order Lye a latest circular to the knights labor assemblies is singularly full Wise counsel. It gives further evidence the excellent leadership the order and is calculated to renew Public Confidence in it. The Cardinal Points the circular Are these beware labourers who never labor and when they charge their actions to the order promptly deny it. Do not Boycott papers that criticise the order. We demand free speech and cannot consistently deny it to others. Do not allow the order to be used for selfish ends. Keep quiet and let your officers do their Best. If you have Confidence in them obey them and sustain them. If you have not ask for their resignations. Instead buying guns and dynamite buy Well selected Hooks labor. Brains not hands must solve the labor problem. Capital should he the Friend not the enemy labor. If there is a drinking Knight labor let him pledge himself to break the Chain that slavery regain the reason which rum has deprived him and in asserting his own manhood help the plans labor. The pledge which . Powderly proposes is a stirring Appeal to manhood to self esteem and to love labors cause. One can hardly read it without a thrill emotion. It is its own recommendation and carries conviction captive. It is a Loving hand stretched Down to help the victim up. May each one grasp it and never let it go about the size it. The outrageous usurpation Power by lieutenant governor Kennedy Ohio and the action the Republican senators in swearing in their party contestants from Hamilton county will probably Aid instead injuring the democracy in the coming congressional elections. That War horse Allen g. Thurman announces his intention going the stump that Issue if his health permits and if he enters earnestly into the Light his Power will he Felt. A whenever the minority a legislative body a lie says a can Rule the majority and oust legally elected members it is High time the Constitution Ohio was Neus. The so called fraud investigating Eom mittens the Ohio legislature have squandered Many thousand dollars the Peoples Money during the present session that body and no Good results have been accomplished. The state is bankrupt without a legitimate legislative body to provide ways and Means to replenish the depleted exchequer. Is it not about time to Call a halt ? it served Frank Hurd right to have his claim to a seat in Congress rejected by democratic votes. Two years ago he voted against seating Hon. J. 11. Wallace the Stark and Columbiana District who was clearly elected Over we. Mckinley. There was this difference in the two cases however Wallace Wais elected and Hurd shield and Banner. Our Soldier readers Are warned to beware an institution located in new York under the name the a a United states military Post Library it is denounced by the War department As a fraud. A Boom for m Bride. A a Jackson Democrat a Kenton Ohio w rites the Cleveland Plain dealer As follows if the democracy Ohio Are Wise this fall they will head their ticket with a Workman a candidate. If they we do this Success is certain. As yet no candidate for Secretary state has been mentioned and i think it would he eminently proper to give the nomination for this office to Hon. John Mcbride Stark county president the Ohio miners Union and a Sterling Democrat and a Man who would till the office to the Honor the democracy and to the credit the state. It would be fitting for one who has fought so Many Battles that the democracy Ohio place him at the head their ticket. Or. Mcbride does not seek the nomination hut we Are certain if his party Calls him to the front he will accept. He has hosts friends among the miners and workingmen the state and if placed at the head the ticket would materially strengthen the whole ticket. A meeting called in new York to sympathize w Ith Gladstone and Parnell packed the Academy music Friday night. Ireland a sympathizers were not confined to natives that country. A number Good natured speeches we Ere made and the following letter from Samuel j. Tilden was read a i cordially and earnestly concur with you in desiring to give the most imposing expression approval admiration and applause with which America regards the magnificent Eifort the English Premier to Crown his career illustrious services to Mankind let a giving the blessings Home Rule to the Long mis governed people Ireland. Next to the renowned Gladstone the Meed gratitude is due to Parnell for so signal an Advance the cause focal self government among Jacob Miller Fountain Dale pa., married his first Cousin and Between 1860 and 1874, eleven children were born to them. Of these were unsound mind save one a daughter by no Means Bright who is married. Fight others Are alive and five them Are idiots and the others Little better. Mrs. Miller is dead and her husband who is a prosperous Farmer lives alone with his eight unfortunate children. He says that his misfortune is a a stroke Henry Allis who died in Coatsville pa., recently was known to have saved $1,300, but it could not be found. After his burial the Story got about that the Money was sewed in the lining the coat in which he was buried. Soon after the grave avas opened the coffin split open and the body taken out. It was found in the graveyard with the clothing scattered about except the coat which was missing. Or. Andrew f. Creighton a prominent Young lawyer Columbus fatally shot himself wednesday last week at the Home his parents near Warsaw Coshocton county where he had been visiting for a few Days. He had just returned from Hunting and while placing his gun the floor it was accidentally discharged the entire Load shot entering his bowels. He died in a few hours after the Accident. Taxpayers and voters Ohio Are not satisfied with the mysterious actions the state Senate and denounce the whole circus performance from Alpha to Omega to be a genuine farce. While democrats Are now absent republicans occupy the Arena with a superabundance clowns and Cranks. Its a great aggregation and beats the oldest Chestnut hide and that a fellow Ever set Down . It takes a Trojan girl to coolly alight from a demolished Carriage shoulder Uncle same a mail bags and pursue foot a pair runaway horses and having overtaken them mount the Leader and Gallop into town with flying colors and safely deliver her cargo fifteen minutes ahead time. That is what a Portage county girl did a few Days ago. Grave complications Are growing out the seizure american schooners by Canada and Maine fishermen have resolved to their vessels and resist capture by the Canadian cruisers. The indifference the United states government excites indignation and serious trouble May yet grow out the difficulty. The Ohio democratic senatorial exiles with the exception a few members still remain Kentucky soil and say they will not return until the legislature adjourns. Or. Geo. W. Crites this District we Are informed is at his Home in canal Dover where he returned a few Days ago. A petition is Bein circulated in Massachusetts in favor a Law making it the duty Public school teachers to he kind to the lower order animals. This is an important matter As cruelty to inferior animals often lays the basis for crimes a higher order when the years maturity Are reached. The Cleveland Plain dealer is authority for the statement that Hon. James m. Williams present member the legislature from Coshocton county is being urged by his friends to accept the nomination for Congress from this District. A Syndicate British capitalists proposes to build the Chesapeake amp Delaware ship canal at a Cost $8,000,000, provided the citizens Maryland subscribe $1,000,000 the amount As an evidence their interest in the work. Or. P. T. Barnum has discharged two his circus men for profanity during the performance. Or. Barnum never permits his performers to usurp the prerogatives his patrons.

Through the kindness . Wells druggist this City we Are permitted to publish the following from a letter written to the above gentleman from . J. Thomas Harbine a prominent business Man and an extensive manufacturer Xenia Ohio accept my thanks for your humane sympathy with our unfortunate people Many whom have lost their Homes and the Little gatherings a life. No paper has Given a description the disaster that would convey to the Reader a tenth part the misery and sorrow the storm has wrought. One my hands is now acting As father to two orphan boys by the name Morris the balance the family nine including parents went Down with the flood to their Graves. The Story the boys though perfectly True is so filled with remarkable incidents that when told a few years hence will not be believed. The Mother said a the House is off the the father said a a it has been floating some time we be struck something its the Bridge. I could get out now but we must die sometime and might As Well go together that was the last that was said and As the Home went Down crashing and smashing far Down under the surface the water and under the Large Stone ceiling the Bridge the family were joined in each others arms. were carried for one Hundred feet the Width the Bridge under the Waters surface and the two boys not having perished were swept in the darkness Down the mad dashing torrent one for three fourths a mile and the other and elder for twice that distance. The coolness and Good judgment they displayed is wonderful and the Story the manner their escape and conduct afterwards Are interesting but too Long to narrate Here. Within fifty Yards my Mill four houses were carried away and a stranger coming Here would never suspect that houses had Ever been there. Two Hundred thousand dollars will not build the Bridges and replace other property destroyed in our town. Last year firemen a tournaments were held at Canton and Mansfield which were largely attended not Only by Many companies from different parts the state but by thousands spectators. At the latter place new Philadelphia was represented and the Hoys returned Home with seventy five dollars in Gold As second prize. This year our fire department upon the solicitation their Brothers at other Points will make an Effort to hold a tournament in new Philadelphia to take place some time in july August. The expense necessary for a successful termination the tournament will be More than individual members our fire department can reasonably be expected to defray and our citizens and business men especially will be asked to contribute something to that end. If through the liberality our people the tournament is secured it will last two Days and bring Many strangers to new Philadelphia. Christian Camp a Farmer residing near Dundee in this county was tried before the United states District court at Cleveland last week charged with violating the internal Revenue Laws. The still used was kept in a Side shed and Camp says that the a dapple Jack was made Only for their family use. The still has had quite a history. It is an heirloom the family which Campos father brought Over from Switzerland about seventy years ago. It has several times been captured by the government authorities but carried off again by the Camps. A number Campos neighbors were subpoenaed As witnesses who testified that Camp manufactured his Apple Jack for strictly family use and did not sell any to his neighbors but different occasions refused to do so. The jury rendered a verdict not guilty. Cambridge was broken up last week Over the arrest the Captain the salvation army that place for causing a drum and Tamborine to be beaten the streets Sabbath. The Captain and his assistant were taken before the mayor and after trial the Captain was fined $5, and the assistant $1 and costs. The citizens soon made up the tines and costs but through the advice attorneys were not paid As the defendants will take the Case before the court common pleas. An indignation meeting was held by the citizens tuesday evening following and the arrest the parties and the judgment the measure was severely denounced. Oil monday we had the pleasure meeting our democratic Friend Squire Croxton Dover now in his 82d year. He is apparently enjoying Good health and is a perfect encyclopedia Ohio history. From him we learn a great Deal concerning the earlier Days our native place new Lisbon Coluni Biana county where we were first taught to be a careful our pcs and qts a in the Ohio Patriot office Twenty five years ago. Our venerable Friend a Squire Croxton has a brother still living in Augusta Carroll county who was born in 1800, eight years before the Good Patriot was established. A sad Case. Three four years ago Alonzo at water than a resident Shanesville this county and aged about 25 years was a promising intelligent Young Man with a seemingly Bright future before him. He was a fluent speaker sound Reasoner and had few if any superiors among his colleagues in debate. A a a Book worm a by nature As it were he was possessed a rare fund knowledge topics general interest and became a great favorite with his Scholastic companions. But suddenly one Day a dark Cloud enshrouded that Bright intellect and reason took its flight. Alonzo Atwater was than sent by his friends to the insane Asylum at Columbus where he was pronounced incurable and finally found a Refuge at the county infirmary near this City. Here he remained under kind treatment and every care possible until ten months ago when he escaped and wandered whither he knew not. Every Effort was made to find traces the unfortunate Young Man but not until two weeks ago could his whereabouts he ascertained. A dispatch was then received by the infirmary authorizes this county from sheriff Bebb Ober Lin Kansas saying that Atwater was there under his care. On saturday the sheriff arrived Here with his charge and Atwater is once More under the guard Enship kind hearted Jesse Landis superintendent the infirmary. Sheriff Bebb Oberlin Kansas is evidently a Man Many Noble traits character. The train upon which himself and Atwater travelled was thrown off the tract and Down an embankment fifty feet near Indianapolis Indiana and wrecked and both the sheriff and his charge were fastened in debris and remained there for Over two hours before being rescued. The delay and extra expenses incident to this Accident caused the sheriff some annoyance and he was therefore compelled to replenish his purse before lie could proceed further and this in the interest humanity and his unfortunate demented companion. When sheriff Bebb crossed the state line Ohio he had then complied with the requirements statutory enactments but at his own expense the kind hearted officer from Kansas accompanied unfortunate Atwater to his county Home Here. When asked if he would like to go and see his Mother at Shanesville Atwater replied in the negative saying that a the italians were after him a a strange hallucination which seems to he continually impressed upon the poor Fellows mind.

It is an unfortunate coincidence that the Man who knows exactly How to run a newspaper is always engaged in some other business. The question now agitating the average new philadelphian water work Nix water work ? the fish question with members the new Philadelphia club a got a bite the following particulars concerning the homicide at canal Dover Are from the Democrat published at that place thursday afternoon last week a one armed itinerant notion peddle Adolph Meier made the round our saloons drank Beer wherever he could get it and called at the Saloon we. Ziegler where he was denied until lie exhibited Money to for it. He was Given two glasses which he refused to for and an altercation ensued Between him and Ziegler which resulted in Ziegler throwing Meier out the pavement where he Laid until the marshal came along and conveyed him to the lock up. In the morning when Constable West took breakfast to Meier he was found dead the Coroner was summoned and drs. Welty and bran Nan pm c. Lewis and Serish held an autopsy when it was discovered that Meier a Skull was broken irom near the right ear Back to the Crown his head and there was a clot blood pressing the brain from which the physicians said caused death. The prosecuting attorney instructed marshal Goodman to arrest Ziegler which was done hut a few minutes afterwards he was permitted to go Back to his building when he left but was soon afterwards found at the residence . Neuman taken into custody and conveyed to prison in new Philadelphia. The affair created considerable excitement among our citizens As it was proper it should. We defer further comments upon the terrible affair until the Law has had its course As we do not desire to make a few cents blood Money by detailing events which to say the least Thorn Are sad commentaries upon the frailties human nature. Meier told marvelous stories to some our citizens such As that he dealt in counterfeit Money had a farm in Illinois where his House was struck by lightning and entirely consumed in the falling timbers he lost Bis his wife had both limbs crushed one his children perished in. The flames and one became insane Etc. He also exhibited a subscription begging paper. He was perhaps forty years and played a Greeney a but it is said he was Sharp As a steel trap. In his pockets were found about $7 in Money. The preliminary investigation the affair was held before Esquire new Burg monday morning. The shite called a number witnesses who testified in regard to the affair. The defendant was represented by j. Ii. Mitchell and j. T. Of Donnell Esq a who decline to Call witnesses preferring to hold their testimony until the final trial. Under the circumstances Esq. New Burg thought Best to bind the defendant Over to court and fix the Bond at $1,500, which was promptly Given. The matter elicited considerable comment. It is proper that the Public should withhold its decision until the final trial when the truth will doubtless be made to appear.

Cincinnati o., May 17. Ohio a self exiled senators now quartered at the Arrington House in Covington have finally prepared a statement for publication. They have been absent from the state for two weeks. During that time they have visited Atlanta new Orleans Chattanooga and Lexington. For the last few Days they have been in Covington. The reasons for their departure Are fully set Forth in their manifesto. Their statement has let Een hastened by the doings the legislature in the last few Days and the criticisms the press. Two Cincinnati hoards the Board Public works and Board health have been abolished throwing out employment nearly two thousand demo-1 crafts and the governor has appointed a commission Public affairs consist ing five Republican politicians to take their places. The legislature has passed a congressional Gerrymander which allows the democrats but live districts in the shite. this the senators claim will not stand in a court Justice. Since they have been in Covington every Courtesy has been extended by the people that City. They have been Given Steamboat rides the River taken fishing excursions and entertained at the houses the principal citizens. This afternoon they were Given a reception at the House sex governor John w. Stevenson in Newport by. Two the senators Neill Zanesville and Lawrence Guernsey county Are sex congressmen. The statement is As follows to the people Ohio a we recognize that it is due to the people Ohio to briefly recite the causes which impelled us As their representatives to leave the Senate our state without a quorum. On tiie 29th Day april there was offered for adoption in the Senate Ohio two reports from the sub committee privileges and elections which were made a matter special order for May 5. One recommended the seating the contesting the other the contested delegation from Hamilton county. It was known to us that the presiding officer the Senate had determined upon a prearranged demand for the previous question in violation the Constitution and rules the Senate to Call the Roll the Senate the question the adoption the report stating the contestants omitting the names the cont Stees declare the report adopted and administer to the contest ors who were to in in attendance the oath office. This action was to he entered upon the journal and upon the theory that the journal entry was conclusive would have been made valid by our presence. Our Only remedy against this revolutionary proceeding was to leave the Senate without a quorum. The Senate consists thirty seven members. Our Constitution provides article 2, Section 6that a quorum to do business shall consist a majority the members elected it further provides that a less number May adjourn from Day to Day and compel the attendance absent members. On the 6th Day May there being less than a quorum present a Call the Senate was made for the purpose bringing in absent members and the Senate that Day adjourned. On the 7th Day May warrants for the arrest absent members were in pursuance said Call placed in the hands the sergeant at arms the Senate who returned the writs May 12th, endorsed a a not in the meantime May 8, in violation article 2, Section 6, the Constitution our state Rule 17 the Senate which provides that when less than a quorum vote any question pending in the Senate the question shall he declared lost and no question affecting the right a member to his seat he declared carried when a quorum is present unless a majority a the senators the role shall vote therefor also in violation Rule 22 the Senate which provides that a a when the right two More persons to a scat in the Senate is questioned by contest otherwise no Joinder such cont Stees persons will be permitted in any hearing proceeding be Eire the Senate also in violation Rule 7, the Senate which provides that no Resolution motion afle eating the right any person persons to a seat in the Senate shall be declared carried unless the majority the members the Roll the Senate concur therein. Also in violation article 4, Section 1, the Federal Constitution which guarantees to every state in the Union a Republican form government with seventeen members the Senate present and no More said minority voted for a Resolution seated the said contest ors and the presiding officer the Senate declared said Resolution adopted and administered to said cont estors the oath office senators whereupon said cont estors took seats in said it by and despite protests have assumed to exercise legislative Powers. The Rule the Senate to which we refer were made in pursuance article 3, Section 8 tin Constitution which provide that a a each House May determine its own rules proceeding. The violation the rules and constitutional provisions referred took place and the fact that less than a quorum were present when the vote was taken the Resolution seating the said contestants was fully set Forth in various protests made and offered by senator Van Cleat the floor the Senato. The Constitution article 2, Section 10, provides that any member either House shall have right to protest against any act Resolution thereof and such protest and the reasons therefor shall without alteration commitment delay he entered opon the journal. Yet despite this Plain and mandatory provision the Constitution the presiding officer the Senate assumed discretionary Power and refused to permit said protests to be entered upon to the end that the journals May not show a reference to tie fact while he and every senator the floor the Senate knew there was not a quorum present at the time taking the vote the Resolution seating the contesting delegation from Hamilton county. As our presence would tend to make valid Tuat which would otherwise be a nullity we have remained beyond the reach Ottlie process the minority leaving them powerless to make read approve a lawful journal. a majority and a quorum the members the Senate Ohio duly elected and qualified do therefore protest against the Assumption legislative Power by the body calling itself the Ohio Senate and we pronounce its existence a revolutionary usurpation and its enactment legally void.
