There were but three negative votes in the by Jones of Franklin, Canfield of Fulton and McCormick of Gallia. Ohio is the tenth state to endorse the amendment. With both houses adjourned until Monday, most members aro looking forward to the hearing on the Dean bill. Some of the senators are of the opinion that the legislature dees not work assiduously enough and yes- terday when Senator Dean moved an adjournment to Monday evening there were many objections, led by Sena- tor Frazier, but on vote the motion carried by a vote of 17 to 13 Wayne Wheeler, of the Anti-Saloon league, charge" that the organization of an association of German-Amer- ican legislators is part of a plot to railroad the Dean bill through the as- sembly.

An incident of caucus was the injecting of the presidential boom of Hainion In seconding the nomination of Clark for speaker. Rep- resentative .iinsbern of Ohij said: "I second the irmimation of Champ Clark for speaker on behalf of trr sixteen democratic members of the Ohio delegation and also remind >ou that in 1S12 the democrats of Ohio will present Gov. Harmon to the na- tion as '.heir candidate for president." It was a hold play which some did not lite, but it was applauded. The idea of carrying the quarrel that has split the Ohio delegation onto the floor of the general caucus was not entiiely abanrtoni'd until in the afternoon. Congressman Cox abandon- ed his notion of fighting for a place on the and means committee with the statement that yielded onlv through a desire not in any way to em- Ibairass Gov. Harmon.

RING WAS NOT STOLEB Proben Evidently Misiaiokti Reciived a S tit s Charge Milan Girl Against IhirlesRaff Aisr Not Sustained. In its final report Thursday af- ternoon, the grand jury, it de- velops, ignored the two cases which have aroused the mcst gen- eral interest. As a result, Charles Ruff, of this city, accjsed of an attempt to commit a cr-'ninat sault on Miss Rose Truett. of Milan, and Miss Pearl Stoker, charged with the larceny of a diamond ring, from Ernest Hain- zerling. a local barber, go free, as no indictments wera returned n- gainst them. A number of v. itnesses were sum- moned in both cf these ca-es. and a caiefu! examipaiien of the facts made. Both of the pirties involved were out on bond wnle their eases were being iniestigated by, the iranj jury. H was stated on good -airftority Thursdav afternoon 'hat the grand juiy voted not to return au indietmem against Charles Ruff. Testimony o! a sensational nature relatne to the alleged crime ghen before that body, it is de- claied. Nearly all time records for quick- ness in the administiation of justice in Erie count) ueie broken in Ruff case He was brought before Philip Dietrich, justice of the peace, Sunday, charged with committing offense Saturday night Suss 'duett gave testimony ia the preliminary- hearing Monday mina and Ruff was bound over to the giand jury. But fl.-e days elapsed from the bringing of the charge a- sairst the man. and the refusal of the grand jury to indkt him. Ruff was a happy man Friday. He declared [he charge did him a great in- justice and that it was unfounded. Unusual circumstances were also connected with the ignoring of thft iarceny charge against Miss Pearl Stoker, brought up in transcript from the court of JiOhS justice of peace. It was claimed that the flrl had kept company the young barber, and according to her story, he gave her a diamond ring valued at In the early part of October, he swore out a wan ant for her ar- lest. charging her with the theft ot the ring and she was bound over to the grand jurj. None of the seven secret ments returned by the grand Jury has yet been served, although action a- long this line is expected soon. It is believed that with the exception of the Ruff matter practically all the, cases considered came np to the grand juty on transcripts.
