PREFACE 

THE "Biographical Annals of Ohk>" is the outcome of efforts to 
preserve in ready reference form the names and history of the 
men who have served the State. In 1888- 1892, Col. William 
A. Taylor, a well-known journalist, collected from official sources much 
of the matter which appears within these covers and published as a pri- 
vate enterprise "The Ohio Statesman and Hundred Year Book." The 
General Assembly purchased and distributed an edition of 7,500 copies. 
In 1896-98 a revised edition under the name of the "Ohio Statesman 
and Annals of Progress" was prepared by Col. Taylor. The State 
through an act of the General Assembly purchased the manuscript and 
copyright of the work and printed far gratuitous distribution an edition 
of 9,500 copies. 

In 1 900-1901 another revision, prepared under the direction of the 
General Assembly by Mr. E. Howard Gilkey, was published under the 
name of the Hundred Year Book. 

The Act of May 12, 1902, as amended April 19, 1904, contemplates 
the publication of a work oif this character biennially under the name of 
"The Biographical Annals of Ohio." In order that the series may be 
complete the matter heretofore published is reprinted in this volume 
covering the biographical history of Ohio from the formation of the 
Northwest Territory in 1787 to September i, 1904. 

The present compilers make no claim to originality or authorship. 
They acknowledge their obligations to Col. Taylor, Mr. Gilkey and the* 
others who have contributed hours of research and labor to the sum of 
this result.

THE DECLARATION OF THE INDEPENDENCE OF THE 
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. 

In Confederate Congress, July 4th, 1776. 

the unanimous declaration of the thirteen states of america. 

WHEN in the course of human events it becomes necessary for 
one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected 
them with another, and to assume among the Powers of the 
earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and 
of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of man- 
kind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to 
the separation. 

We hold these truths to be self evident, that all men are created equal, 
that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable Rights, 
that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That 
to secure these rights Governments are instituted among men, deriving 
their just powers from the consent of the governed. That whenever any 
Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right o'f 
the People to alter or abolish it, and to institute new government, laying 
its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, 
as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. 
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should 
not be changed for light and transient causes ; and accordingly all experi- 
ence hath shown, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils 
are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which 
they are accustomed. But when a long train of usages and usurpations, 
pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under 
absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such 
Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. Such 
has been the patient sufferance of these colonies ; and such is now the 
necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Govern- 
ment. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of 
repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the estab- 
lishment of an absolute tyranny over these States. To prove this, let 
Facts be submitted to a candid world. 

He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and neces- 
sary for the public good. 

He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and 
pressing importance,' unless suspended in their operation till his Assent 
should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected 
to attend to them. 

He has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of large

districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of 
Representation in the Legislature, a right inestimable to them and formid- 
able to tyrants only. 

He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncom- 
fortable, and distant from the depository of their Public Records, for 
the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures. 

He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing 
with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people. 

He has refused for a long time after such dissolutions, to cause 
others to be elected ; whereby the Legislative Powers, incapable of Anni- 
hilation, have returned to the people at large for their exercise; the State 
remaining in the mean time exposed to all the dangers of invasion from 
without, and convulsions within. 

He has endeavored to prevent the population of these States; for 
that purpose obstructing the Laws for Naturalization of Foreigners; 
refusing to pass others to encourage their migration hither, and raising 
the conditions of new Appropriations of Lands. 

He has obstructed the Administration of Justice, by refusing his 
Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary Powers. 

He has made Judges dependent on his will alone, for the tenure of 
their offices, and the amount of payment of their salaries. 

He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms 
of Officers to harass our people and eat out their substance. 

He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies, without 
the Consent of our legislature. 

He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior 
to the civil power. 

He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign 
to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws ; giving his Assent 
to their Acts of pretended Legislation: 

For quartering large bodies of armed troops among us: 

For prorf;ecting them by a mock trial, from punishment for any Mur- 
ders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States: • 

For cutting off our trade with all parts of the world : 

For imposing taxes on us without our consent: 

For depriving us In many cases, of the benefits of Trial by Jury : 

For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offenses : 

For abolishing the free System of English Laws In a neighboring 
Province, establishing therein an Arbitrary government, and enlarging its 
Boundaries so as to render It at once an example and fit instrument for 
introducing the same absolute rule into these Colonies : 

For taking away our Charters, abolish our most valuable Laws, and 
altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments: 



THE BIOGRAPHICAL ANNALS OF OHIO. 11 



The Declaration of Independence. 



For suspending our OAvn Legislatures, and declaring themselves in- 
vested with Power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever. 

He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his pro- 
tection and waging war against us. 

He has plundered our seas, ravaged our Coasts, burnt our towns and 
destroyed the lives of our people. 

He is at this time transporting large armies of mercenaries to com- 
plete the works of death, desolation and tyranny, already begun with 
circumstances of Cruelty & perfidy scarcely parallelled in the most bar- 
barous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation. 

He has constrained our fellow Citizens taken Captive on the high 
Seas to bear arms against their Country to become the executioners of 
their friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves by their hands: 

He has excited domestic insurrection amongst us, and has endeav- 
ored to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian 
Savages, whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction 
of all ages, sexes and conditions. 

In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress 
In the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered 
by repeated injury. A Prince, whose character is thus marked by every 
act which may define a Tyrant, Is unfit to be the ruler of a free people. 

Nor have We been wanting In attention to our British brethren. We 
have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to 
extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them 
of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have 
appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured 
them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, 
which would Inevitably Interrupt our connections and our correspondence. 
They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. 
We must, therefore, acquiesce In the necessity, which denounces our Sep- 
aration and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in War, 
In Peace Friends. 

We, therefore, the Representatives of the United States of America, 
In General Congress assembled, appealing to tjie Supreme Judge of the 
world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, In the Name, and by 
Authority of the Good people of these Colonies, solemnly publish and 
declare. That these United Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free 
and Independent States ; and that they are Absolved from all Allegiance 
to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and 
the State of Great Britain, Is and ought to be totally dissolved ; and that 
as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, con- 
clude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other 
Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. And for

same is to entered into, and how long it shall continue. 

No state shall lay any imposts or duties, which may interfere with

assembled with any king, prince, or state, in pursuance of any treaties 
already proposed by congress to the courts of France and Spain. 

No vessels of war shall be kept up in time of peace by any state, 
except such number only, as shall be deemed necessary by the united 
states in congress assembled, for the defence of such state, or its trade ; 
nor shall any body of forces be kept up by any state, in time of peace, 
except such number only, as in the judgment of the united states, in 
congress assembled, shall be deemed requisite to garrison the forts neces- 
sary for the defence of such state ; but every state shall always keep up 
a well regulated disciplined militia, sufficiently armed and accoutred, 
and shall provide and constantly have ready for use, in public stores, a 
due number of field pieces and tents, and a proper quantity of arms, am- 
munition and camp equipage. 

No state shall engage in any war without the consent of the united 
states in congress assembled, unless such state be actually invaded by

imminent as not to admit of a delay, till the united states in congress 
assembled can be consulted nor shall any state grant commissions to any 
ships or vessels of war, nor letters of marque or reprisal, except it be 
after a declaration of war by the united states in congress assembled, 
and then only against the kingdom or state and the subjects thereof, 
against which war has been so declared, and under such regulations as 
shall be established by the united states in congress assembled, unless 
such state be infested by pirates, in which case vessels of war may be 
fitted out for that occasion, and kept so long as the danger shall continue, 
or until the united states in congress assembled shall determine otherwise. 

Article VII. When land forces are raised by any state for the 
common defence, all officers of or under the rank of colonel, shall be

16 THE BIOGRAPHICAL ANNALS OF OHIO. 

Act of Confederation. 

shall be estimated according to such mode as the united states in congress 
assembled, shall from time to time direct and appoint. 

The taxes for paying that portion shall be laid and levied by the 
authority and direction of the legislatures of the several states within 
the time agreed upon by the united states in congress assembled. 

Article IX. The united states in congress assembled, shall have 
the sole and exclusive right and power of determining on peace and war, 
except in the cases mentioned in the sixth article — of sending and receiv- 
ing embassadors — entering into treaties and alliances, provided that no 
treaty of commerce shall be made whereby the legislative power of the re- 
spective states shall be restrained from imposing such imposts and duties 
on foreigners, as their own people are subjected to, or from prohibiting 
the exportation or importation of any species of goods or commodities 
whatsoever — of establishing rules for deciding in all cases, what captures 
on land or water shall be legal, and in what manner prizes taken by land 
or naval forces in the service of the united states shall be divided or 
appropriated — of granting letters of marque and reprisal in times of peace 
— appointing courts for the trial of piracies and felonies committed on the 
high seas and establishing courts for receiving and determining finally 
appeals in all cases of captures, provided that no member of congress shall 
be appointed a judge of any of the said courts. The united states in con- 
gress assembled shall also be the last resort on appeal in all disputes and 
differences now subsisting or that hereafter may arise between twoi or 
more states concerning boundary, jurisdiction or any cause whatever; 
which authority shall always be exercised in the manner following. 
Whenever the legislative or executive authority or lawful agent of any 
state in controversy with another shall present a petition to congress 
stating the matter in question and praying for a hearing, notice thereof 
shall be given by congress to the legislative or executive authority of the 
other state in controversy, and a day assigned for the appearance of the 
parties by their lawful agents, who shall then be directed to appoint by 
joint consent, commissioners or judges to constitute a court for hearing 
and determining the matter in question ; but if they cannot agree, congress 
shall name three persons out of each' of the united states, and from the list 
of such persons each party shall alternately strike out one, the petitioners 
beginning, until the number shall be reduced to thirteen; and from that 
number not less than seven, nor more than nine names as congress shall 
direct, shall in the presence of congress be drawn out by lot, and the per- 
sons whose names shall be so drawn, or any five of them, shall be commis- 
sioners oir judges to hear and finally determine the controversy, so always 
as a major part of the judges who shall hear the cause shall agree in the 
determination : and if either party shall neglect to attend at the day ap- 
pointed, without showing reasons, which congress shall judge sufficient, 



THE BIOGRAPHICAL ANNALS OF OHIO. 17 



Act of Confederation. 



or being present shall refuse to strike, the congress shall proceed to nomi- 
nate three persons out of each state, and the secretary of congress shall 
strike in behalf of such party absent or refusing; and the judgment and 
sentence of the court to be appointed, in the manner before prescribed, 
shall be final and conclusive ; and if any of the parties shall refuse to sub- 
mit to the authority of such court, or to appear or defend their claim or 
cause, the court shall nevertheless proceed to pronounce sentence, or 
judgment, which shall in like manner be final and decisive, the judgment 
or sentence and other proceedings being in either case transmitted to 
congress, and lodged among the acts of congress for the security of the 
parties concerned: provided that every commissioner, before he sits in 
judgment, shall take an oath to be administered by one of the judges of 
the supreme or superior court of the state, where the cause shall be tried, 
"well and truly to hear and determine the matter in question, according 
to the best of his judgment, without favor, affection or hope of reward:" 
provided also that no state shall be deprived of territory for the benefit of 
the united states. 

All controversies concerning the private right of soil claimed under 
different grants of two or more states, whose jurisdictions as they may 
respect such lands, and the states which passed such grants are adjusted, 
the said grants or either of them being at the same time claimed to have 
originated antecedent to such settlement of jurisdiction, -shall on the 
petition of either party to the congress of the united states, be finally 
determined as near as may be in the same manner as is before prescribed 
for deciding disputes respecting territorial jurisdiction between different 
states. 

The united states in congress assembled shall also have the sole and 
exclusive right of regulating the alloy and value of coin struck by their 
own authority, or by that of the respective states — fixing the standard 
of weights and measures throughout the united states — regulating the 
trade and managing all affairs with the Indians, not members of any 
of the states, provided that the legislative right of any state within its 
own limits be not infringed or violated — establishing and regulating post- 
ofiices from one state to another, throughout all the united states, and 
exacting such postage on the papers passing thro' the same as may be 
requisite to defray the .expenses' of said office — appointing all officers of 
the land forces, in the service oi the united states, excepting regimental 
officers — appointing all the officers of the naval forces, and commission- 
ing all officers whatever in the service of the united states — making rules 
for the government and regulation of said land and naval forces, and 
directing their operations. 

The united states in congress assembled shall have authority to ap- 
point a committee, to sit in the recess of congress, to be denominated **A

18 THE BIOGRAPHICAL ANNALS OF OHIO. 

Act of Confederation. 



Committee of the States/' and to consist of one delegate from each 
state ; and to appoint such other committees and civil officers as may be 
necessary for managing the general affairs of the united states under their 
direction — to appoint one of their number to preside, provided that no 
person be allowed to serve in the office of president more than one year 
in any term of three years ; to ascertain the necessary sums of Money to 
be raised for the service of the united states, and to appropriate and 
apply the same for defraying the public expenses — to borrow money, 
or emit bills on the credit of the united states ; transmitting every half 
year to the respective states an account of the sums of money so bor- 
rowed or emitted, — to build and equip a navy — to agree upon the number 
of land forces, and to make requisitions from each state for its quota, in 
proportion to the number of white inhabitants in such state ; which 
requisitions shall be binding, and thereupon the legislature of each state 
shall appoint the regimental officers, raise the men and cloath, arm and 
equip them in a soldier like manner, at the expense of the united states; 
and the officers and men so cloathed, armed and equipped shall march to 
the place appointed and within the time agreed upon by the united states 
in congress assembled: But if the united states in congress assembled 
shall, on consideration of circumstances judge proper that any state 
should not raise men, or should raise a smaller number than its quota, 
and that any other state should raise a greater number of men than its 
quota thereof, such extra number shall be raised, officered, cloathed, 
armed and equipped in the same manner as the quota of such state, unless 
the legislature of such state shall judge that such extra number cannot 
be safely spared out of the same, in which case they shall raise, officer, 
cloathe, arm and equip as many of such number as they judge can be safely 
spared. And the officers and men so cloathed, armed and equipped shall 
march to the place appointed, and within the time agreed on by the united

and dig-est the form of a confederation to be entered into between these colonies." 
The report of the committee was made on the 12th of July, and printed copies placed 
in the hands of members of the congrress for their secret examination. For two years 
the articles were under discusision by the members of the several state legislatures 
to whom copies were sent by the new g'overnment, and on the 9th of July, 1778. the 
representatives in congress of the States of New Hampshire, Massachusetts Bay, 
Rhode Island and Providence Plantations. Connecticut, New York, Pennsylvania, 
Virginia and South Carolina, signed the form above which had been agreed upon. 
To those states whose delegates being absent or uncertain of their power, did not 
sign the form at this time, Congress addressed a request for action with nil con- 
venient dispatch. North Carolina ratified the Act on the 21st of July, niul deorgia 
on the 24th of the same month, thus giving the assent of ten states to the Instniment.

RUTHERFORD BIRCHARD HAYES. 

RUTHERFORD BIRCHARD HAYES, nineteenth president of the United 
States, was born at Delaware, Ohio, October 4, 1822; graduated at Kenyon 
College, Ohio, in 1842, and at Harvard Law School in 1845; began the practice 
of law at Fremont, Ohio; removed to Cincinnati in 1849; was city solicitor from 
1858 to 1861; was appointed, June 27, 1861, major Twenty-third Ohio Volun- 
teers, of which W. S. Rosecrans was the first colonel and Stanley Matthews 
(afterwards justice U. S. Supreme Court) lieutenant-colonel. He was promoted 
lieutenant-colonel October 24, 1861, from which date he commanded the Twenty- 
third until December, 1862. In the brilliant action of South Mountain (1862) he 
received a severe wound in the left arm which compelled him to leave the field. 
After the battle of Antietam the regiment was returned to West Virginia, where, 
November 30, 1862, he rejoined it as colonel, having been promoted October 24. 
He was commissioned brigadier-general of volunteers, to date from battle of 
Cedar Creek, at the close of which he received news of his election to Congress 
from the second district of Ohio; was made brevet major-general for gallant 
services, and resigned from the army June 1, 1865. In December he took his 
seat in Congress; was re-elected in 1866, but left his seat in 1867, having been 
nominated for governor of Ohio, to which office he was elected in October and 
re-elected in 1869. In 1872 he suffered his first defeat for Congress. In 1875 
he reluctantly consented to allow his name to be used once more as a candidate 
for governor, and was elected for a third time, an honor never before conferred 
upon a citizen of Ohio. On June 16, 1876, he was nominated at Cincinnati for 
President of the United States, on the Republican ticket, on the seventh ballot, 
receiving 384 votes, to 351 for J. G- Blaine, and 21 for B. H. Bristow. The 
ensuing canvass, which was bitter and exciting, was closed by a disputed elec- 
tion, the electoral votes of Florida, South Carolina, and Louisiana, and one of 
those of Oregon being claimed by both parties. The Presidential Electoral Com- 
mission announced, March 2, 1877, that he had been duly elected president of 
the United States. The inauguration ceremonies took place on March 5, During 
the four years of his office the affairs of the government were conducted in a 
manner that will command the favorable judgment of history. Died at Fremont, 
Ohio, January 17, 1893.

THE ORDINANCE OF 1787. 

AN ORDINANCE FOR THE GOVERNMENT OF THE TERRITORY OF THE UNITED

resident and non-resident proprietors, in the said territory, dying intes- 
tate, shall descend to, and be distributed among their children, and the 
descendants of a deceased child in equal parts; the descendants of a 
deceased child or grandchild, to take the share of their deceased parent 
in equal parts among them; and where there shall be no children or 
descendants, then in equal parts to the next of kin, in equal degree; and 
among collaterals, the children of a 'deceased brother or sister of the 
intestate shall have in equal parts among them their deceased parents 
share; and there shall in no case be a distinction between kindred of the 
whole and half blood; saving in all cases to the widow of the intestate, 
her third part of the real estate for life, and one-third part of the per- 
sonal estate; and this law relative to descents and dower, shall remain 
in full force until altered by the legislature of the district. And until

writing, signed and sealed by him or her in whom the estate may be (being 
of full age) and attested by three witnesses; and real estates may be con- 
veyed by lease and release or bargain and sale signed, sealed and de- 
livered by the person, being of full age, in whom the estate may be, and

conveyances be acknowledged, or the execution thereof duly proved, and

ters shall be appointed for that purpose; and personal property may be 
transferred by delivery, saving, however, toi the French and . Canadian

which the constitutions of all the northwestern states are founded, belongs of

Article VIIL 

BILL OF rights. 

That the general great and essential principles of liberty and free 
government may be recognized and forever unalterably established, we 
declare — 

Section i. That all men are born equally free and independent, 
and have certain natural inherent and unalienable rights, amongst which | 
are the enjoying and defending life and liberty, acquiring, possessing, 
and protecting property, and pursuing and obtaining happiness and 
safety; and every free republican government being founded on their 
sole authority, and organized for the great purpose of protecting their 
rights and liberties, and securing their independence — to effect these 
ends, they have at all times a complete power to alter, reform or abolish 
their government whenever they may deem it necessary. 

Sec. 2. There shall be neither slavery nor involuntary servitude 
in this State, otherwise than for the punishment of crimes, whereof 
the party shall have been duly convicted ; nor shall any male person 
arrived at the age of twenty-one years or female person arrived at the

the pretense of indenture or otherwise, unless such person shall enter 
into such indenture while in a state of perfect freedom, and on condition 
of a bona Me consideration received, or to be received for their service, 
except as before excepted. Nor shall any indenture of any negro or 
mulatto hereafter made and executed out of the State, or, if made 
in the State where the term of servitude exceeds one year, be of the 
least validity, except those given in the case of apprenticeships. 

Sec. 3. That all men have a natural and indefeasible right to 
worship Almighty God according to the dictates of conscience ; that no C

human authority can, m any case whatever, control or interfere with the 
rights of conscience ; that no man shall be compelled to attend, erect, or 
support any place of w^orship, or to maintain any ministry against his 
consent; and that no preference shall ever be given by law to any religious 
society or mode of worship, and no religious test shall be required as a 
qualification to any olhce of trust or profit. But religion, morality, and 
knowledge being essentially necessary to good government and the happi- 
ness of mankind, schools and the means of instruction shall forever be 
encouraged by legislative provision not inconsistent with the rights of 
conscience. 

Sec. 4. Private property ought, and shall ever be held inviolate, 
.but always subservient to the public welfare, provided a compensation 
in money be made to the owner. 

Sec. 5. That the people shall be secure in their persons, houses, 
papers and possessions from unwarrantable searches and seizures and 
that general warrants, whereby an officer may be commanded to search 
suspected places without probable evidence of the fact committed, or to 
seize any person or persons not named whose offenses are not particularly 
described, and without oath or affirmation, are dangerous to liberty, and 
shall not be granted. 

Sec. 6. That the printing presses shall be open and iree to every 
citizen who wishes to examine the proceedings of any branch of govern- 
ment, or the conduct of any public officer; and no law shall ever restrain 
the right thereof. Every citizen has an indisputable right to speak, write 
or print upon any subject as he thinks proper, being liable for the abuse 
of that liberty. In prosecutions for any publication respecting the official 
conduct of men in a public capacity, or where the matter published is 
proper for public information the truth thereof may alw^ays be given in 
evidence; and in all indictments for libels the jury shall have the right 
to determine the law and the facts under the direction of the court, as in 
other cases. 

Sec. 7.^ That all courts shall be open, and every person, for an 
injury done him in his lands, goods, person, or reputation, shall have

to be heard by himself and counsel; tO' demand the nature and cause of 
the accusations against him and to have a copy thereof ; to meet the 
witnesses face to face ; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses 
in his favor; and in prosecutions by indictment or presentment a speedy 
public trial by an impartial jury of the County or District in which the 
offense shall have been committed; and shall not be compelled to' give 
evidence against himself, nor shall he be twice put in jeopardy for the 
same offense. 

Sec. 12. That all persons shall be bailable by sufficient sureties, 
unless for capital offenses where the proof is evident or the presumption 
great; and the privilege of the writ of habeas corpus shall not be sus- 
pended, unless, when in case of rebellion or invasion, the public safety 
may require it. 

Sec. 13. Excessive bail shall not be required; excessive fines shall 
not be imposed ; nor cruel and unusual punishment inflicted. 

Sec. 14. All penalties shall be proportioned to the nature of the 
offense. No wise Legislature will affix the same punishment to the 
crimes of theft, forgery, and the like, which they do to those of murder 
and treason. When the same undisguised severity is exerted against all 
oifenses, the people are led to forget the real distinction in the crimes 
themselves, and to commit the most flagrant with as little compunction 
as they do the slightest oifenses. For the same reasons, a multitude of 
sanguinary laws are both impolitic and unjust; the true design of all 
punishments being to reform, not to exterminate, mankind. 

vSec. 15. The person of a debtor, where there is not strong pre- 
sumption of fraud, shall not be continued in prison after delivering up 
his estate for the benefit of his creditor or creditors, in such manner as 
shall be prescribed by law. 

Sec. 16. No ex post facto law, nor any law impairing the validity 
of contracts, shall ever be made; and no conviction shall work corruption 
of blood or forfeiture of estate.

this State for any oifense committed within the State. 

Sec. 18. That a frequent recurrence to the fundamental principles 
of civil government is absolutely necessary to preserve the blessings of 
liberty. 

Sec. 19. That the people have a right to assemble together in a 
peaceable manner to consult for their common good to instruct their 
Representatives, and to apply to the Legislature for a redress of griev- 
ances. 

Sec. 20. That the people have a right to bear arms for the defence

of themselves and the State; and as standing armies in time of peace are 
dangerous to Uberty, they shall not be kept up ; and that the military shall 
be kept under strict subordination to the civil power. 

Sec. 21. That no person in this State, except such as are employed 
in the army or navy of the United States, or militia in actual service, 
shall be subject to corporal punishment under the military law. 

Sec. 22. That no soldier, in time of peace, be quartered in any house 
without the consent of the owner ; nor in time of w^ar, but in the manner 
prescribed by law. 

Sec. 23. That the levying of taxes by the poll is grievous and 
oppressive; therefore the Legislature shall never levy a poll tax for 
County or State purposes. 

Sec. 24. That no hereditary emoluments, privileges, or honors shall 
ever be granted or conferred by this State. 

Sec. 25. That no law shall be passed to prevent the poor in the 
several Counties and townships within this State from an equal participa- 
tion in the schools, academies, colleges, and universities within this State 
which are endowed, in whole or in part, from the revenue arising from 
donations made by the United States for the support of schools and 
colleges; and the doors of the said schools, academies, and universities 
shall be open for the reception of scholars, students, and teachers of every 
grade without any distinction or preference whatever contrary to the 
intent for which said donations were made. 

Sec. 26. That laws shall be passed by the Legislature which shall 
secure to each and every denomination of religious societies in each sur- 
veyed township, which now is or may hereafter be formed in the State, 
an equal participation, according tO' their number of adherents, of the 
profits, arising from the land granted by Congress for the support of 
religion, agreeably to the ordinance or act of Congress making the appro- 
priation. 

Sec. 27. That every association of persons, when regularly formed, 
within this State, and having given themselves a name, may, on applica- 
tion to the Legislature, be entitled to receive letters of incorporation, to 
enable them to hold estates, real and personal, for the support of their 
schools, academies, colleges, universities, and for other purposes. 

Sec. 28. To guard against the transgression of the high powers 
which we have delegated, we declare that all powers not hereby delegated 
remain with the people.

changed to M. A. Hanna & Co., which still exists; has been identified with lake 
carrying business, being interested in vessels on the lakes, and in the construc- 
tion' of such vessels; was president of the Union National Bank of Cleveland; 
president of the Cleveland City Railway Company; was director of the Union 
Pacific Railway Company in 1885, by appointment of President Cleveland; was 
a delegate to the national Republican conventions in 1884, 1888, and 1896; was 
elected chairman of the national Republican committee in 1896 and 1900; was 
appointed to the United States Senate by Governor Bushnell, March 5, 1897, to 
fill the vacancy caused by the retirement of Hon. John Sherman, who resigned 
to accept the position of Secretary of State in President McKinley's cabinet; 
took his seat March 5, 1897; in January, 1898, he was elected for the short term 
ending March 4, 1899, and also for the succeeding full term. Senator Hanna oc- 
cupied a very prominent place among the leaders of the Senate. His advocacy 
of the Panama route for the isthmian canal, after the House of Representatives 
had by an overwhelming vote chosen the Nicaraguan route, resulted in a com- 
plete reversal of the program and the final choice of Panama; this is said to 
be one of the most remarkable legislative feats in the history of the United 
States Congress, and was the result alone of Senator Hanna's masterful presen- 
tation of the claims of Panama as compared with those of Nicaragua. Senator 
Hanna was chosen in January, 1904, to succeed himself in the United States 
Senate for the term commencing March 4, 1905, by the largest majority ever 
accorded a senatorial candidate by the legislature of Ohio. His speech of ac- 
ceptance delivered to the General Assembly was looked upon as the benediction 
of one about to lay down the burdens of life, as indeed it proved to be, for his 
death followed one month later. Senator Hanna died February 15, 1904, in the 
city of Washington, and the funeral was held in Cleveland. His remains were 
deposited in the Wade mausoleum. Lake View Cemetery.

NOTES ON THE CONSTITUTIONAL CONVENTION OF 1802. 

THE Constitutional Convention of 1802 forms a connecting-link be- 
tween the Territorial and State Government which seems to find 
its proper consideration at this point. The first session of the 
Second (and last) Territorial Legislature, was adjourned by Governor 
St. Clair in January, 1802, to meet in Cincinnati, November 29. The 
Congress, by an act of April 30, 1802, provided for the election of mem- 
bers of a convention which should : 

First. Decide on the desirability of forming a state government, and 

Second. Frame the constitution for the state should the convention 
decide the first question affirmatively. 

This convention met in Chillicothe on Monday, November i, four 
weeks prior to the time set for the convening of the Second Territorial 
Legislature in its second session, and on the day appointed for the legis- 
lature to meet, promulgated the First Constitution of the State of 
Ohio. 

Many members of the territorial legislature were members of this 
first constitutional convention, and the following notes from the Journal 
of that convention are republished as matters of history:

Thomas Scott was elected secretary at $3 per day. 

William McFarland was elected assistant secretary, and ordered to 
attend the Committee on Preamble and First Article. 

Adam Betz was elected door-keeper at $1.50 per day. 

Upon the question Avhether it would be expedient to form a consti- 
tution and state government for the people of the Territory, at this time, 
the question carried in the affirmative by a vote of 32 to i. Mr. Cutler 
voted in the negative. 

Note. — "Although more than a fourth of the members comprising the body- 
had expressed their opinion in very decided terms against the expediency of the 
measure, and against the manner of its accomplishment, yet the resolution was 
carried. * * * Judge Cutler, an indomitable Whig, of Washington County, vot- 
ing in the negative, solitary and alone." (Burnett's Notes on the Northwest 
Territory, pp. 352-3.) 

A resolution was adopted requesting the governor to prorogue the 
territorial legislature which had adjourned in January last, to meet in 
Cincinnati on the fourth Monday of the present month. But this was 
not done, as the members of the legislature, many of whom were in con- 
vention, manifested no disposition to interfere with the progress of the 
Territory toward statehood. (See Burnett quoted.)

Notes on the Constittitional Convention of 1802. 



Nathaniel Willis was elected printer to the Convention, on the ^terms 
of his proposition to print 700 copies of the Journal of Convention, and 
1,000 copies of the constitution then being framed. 

A resolution to submit the proposed constitution to the people is 
found on page 15 of the Journal. It was disagreed to by the vote of 2y 
to 7, and the constitution was not submitted to the people, but was put 
in operation by the act' of the delegates to the convention in formally 
signing the instrument in their representative capacity. 

A proposition to have the members of the Senate chosen annually 
instead of biennially was defeated by a vote of 15 to 18. 

A proposition to insert a proviso in Section 19 of Article i, pro- 
hibiting any member of the Convention from holding any office under 
the constitution so framed, unless elective, for the term of one year after 
its adoption, was defeated — yeas 3, nays 31. 

A proposition to strike out of the bill of rights that part of the 
second section relating to servitude of adult persons not negroes or mu- 
lattoes was defeated by a vote of 12 to 21. 

A proposition to strike out that part of the same section which for- 
bids slavery or involimtary servitude in this state, was defeated over- 
whelmingly, by a vote of yeas 2, nays 31. 

Messrs. Paul and Reily, of Hamilton County, voted in favor of the 
proposition. (See Journal, p. 26; November 20, 1802.) 

A proposition to amend the third section of the bill of rights by 
striking out the words ''no j-eligious test shall be required," etc., and 
inserting words to the effect that no person who denies the being of a 
God, or a place of future rewards and punishments, shall bold office in 
the civil government, was lost — yeas 3, nays 30. 

In considering Article 4, on the twenty-second of November, the 
Convention voted — yeas 19, nays 15 — to add these words to the end of 
the article: 

"Provided, that all male negroes and mulattoes, now residing in this 
territory, shall be entitled to the rights of suffrage, if they sh^U within 
twelve months make a record of their citizenship." 

As this is one of the earliest records of an attempt to s;"ive the 
right of suffrage to the negro in America, the vote on that prorposition 
is interesting. Those who voted aye were : Abbot, Byrd, Cutler, Darling- 
ton, Dunlavy, Gatch, Gilman, Goforth, Grubb, Kitchel, Morrow, Paul, 
Putnam, Reily, Sargent, Smith', Updegraff, Wells and Wilson — 19. Those 
who voted in the negative were: Abrams, Baldwin, Bair, Browne, Cald- 
well, Carpenter, Donaldson, Humphrey, Huntington, Kirker, McTntire, 
Massie, Milligan, Woods and Worthlngton— 15. 

At the same time the Convention refused, by a vote of 17 to 16, to 
extend the right of suffrage to the male descendants of such negro 
residents. 



THE BIOGRAPHICAL ANNALS OF OHIO. 89 



Nodes on the Constitutional Convention of 1802. 



A motion was made to add to the seventh article of the constitution 
a new section, as follows: 

"Section 7, No negro or mulatto shall ever be eligible to any office, 
civil, or military, or give their oath in any court of justice against a white 
person, be subject to do military duty or pay a poll tax in this state; 
provided always, and it is fully understood and declared, that all negroes 
and mulattoes, now in, or who may hereafter reside in this state, shall 
be entitled to all the privileges of citizens of this state, not excepted by 
this constitution," 

This was agreed to by a vote of — yeas 19, aays 16 — as follows: 

Yeas — Abrams, Baldw^in, Bair, Byrd, Caldwell, Carpenter, Darling- 
ton, Donaldson, Grubb, Humphrey, Kirker, Massie, Mclntire, Milligan, 
Morrow, Smith, Tiffin, Woods and Worthington — 19. 

Nays — Abbot, Browne, Cutler, Gatch, Oilman, Goforth, Huntington, 
Kitchel, Paul, Putnam, Reily, Sargent, Updegraff, Wells and Wilson — 15. 

On Friday, November 26, in considering Article IV, a motion was 
made to strike out the provision which had been inserted on the twenty- 
second, giving right of suffrage to negroes and mulattoes who would 
prove their residence within twelve months. On this motion the yeas and 
nays were taken and resulted, 17 to 17.' There being a tie vote, the 
president of the Convention (Edward Tiffin, afterward governor of the 
vState) voted in the affirmative, and the proposition was stricken from the 
first constitution of the state. The change of front was brought about 
by the vote of the president and of the Messrs. Darlington, Grubb and 
Smith, who had previously voted to add this provision to the constitution. 
On the other hand, Mr. Browne, who had voted against the proposition 
in the first instance now voted to retain it as a part of the organic law of 
the state. (P. 34.) Mr. Donaldson, who had opposed the proposition 
on the twenty-second, refrained from voting on the question as now 
presented. 

A proposition was made to strike out the fifth section of Article IV, 
relating to labor on roads and its relation to an elector's qualifications, 
which was defeated by a vote of 13 to 21. 

A provision in Article VH, Section 3, that "no new county shall be 
established by the legislature, which is not entitled by its numbers to a 
representative," was stricken out by a vote of 22 to 12. 

An effort to make the minimum number of square miles in a county 
five hundred instead of four hundred was defeated, 11 to 23. 

A motion to strike out the section (7) added to Article VII on the 
twenty-second, in relation to the bar to negroes in office, etc., was carried 
by a vote of 17 to 16. 

On this vote Messrs. Dunlavy (who had not voted on this proposition 
before), and Milligan (who had voted to incorporate it in the article), 



90 THE BIOGRAPHICAL ANNALS OF OHIO. 

Notes on the Constitutional Convention of 1802. 

voted with the friends of the negro, and caused the amendment to be 
made. President Tiffm, who had voted for the incorporation of the 
section on the twenty-second, is not recorded on this later vote. The 
friends of the restriction tried to have it inserted in an amended form, 
but on a demand for the previous question were outgeneraled, and de- 
feated. (P. 36.) 

By a vote of 20 to 13, the convention inserted a provision in Section 
2, Article VIII, prohibiting in this state the indenture of any negro or 
mulatto. 

Early in the sitting of the convention the following message was 
adopted and ordered to be officially transmitted to the representatives 
of the United States: 

To the President and Both Houses of Congress: 

The Convention of the State of Ohio, November 27, 1802, duly appreciating 
the importance of a free and independent state government and impressed with 
sentiments of gratitude to the Congress of the United States, for the prompt and 
decisive measures taken at their last session, to enable the people of the north- 
western territory to immerge from their colonial government, and to assume a 
rank among the sister states, beg leave to take the earliest opportunity of an- 
nouncing to you this important event: on this occasion the convention can not 
help expressing their unequivocal approbation of the measures pursued by the 
present administration of the general government, and both Houses of Congress, 
in diminishing the public burdens, cultivating peace with all nations, and pro- 
ducing the happiness and prosperity of our country.

INTRODUCTORY. 

REFERENCE to the Ordinance of 1787, which is reproduced in 
Part One of this volume, will discover to the reader that the 
legislative function of the territorial government in its first stage 
of development, and until there should be five thousand free male inhab- 
itants of full age in the district, was lodged in the Governor of the Ter- 
ritory and the judges of the General (or Territorial) Court, or, any two 
of the Judges and the Governor. 

The power of this legislative body is specifically declared in these 
words of the third paragraph of the Ordinance: 

''The governor and judges, or a majority of them, shall adopt and 
publish in the district, such laws of the original states, criminal and 
civil, as may be necessary and best suited to the circumstances of the 
district, and report them to Congress from time to time, which laws shall 
be in force in the district until the organization of the general assembly 
therein, unless disapproved of by Congress ; but afterward the legislature 
shall have authoritv to alter them as thev shall think fit."

136 THE BIOGRAPHICAL ANNALS OF 0^10. 



THE FIRST LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL OF THE NORTHWEST 

TERRITORY. 

THE Ordinance was adopted by the Congress, July 13, 1787, and 
the first officers for the territory northwest of the River Ohio 
were elected by the same body in October. They were : Gover- 
nor, Major General Arthur St. Clair, elected October 5 (Pennsyl- 
vania) ; Secretary, Major Winthrop Sargent, elected October 5; 
Judges, General Samuel Holden Parsons, elected October 17 (Connec- 
ticut) ; General James Mitchell Varnum, elected October 17 (Rhode 
Island) ; Colonel John Armstrong, elected October 17 (Pennsylvania) ; 
Lieutenant Colonel Return Jonathan Meigs, Jr., elected February 
19, 1788. 

Colonel Armstrong declined the post tendered to him by the Con- 
gress and .did not come to Ohio. Judge Meigs was elected to fill the 
vacancy. 

Although these officers were appointed in the fall and winter of 
1787-8, there was no settlement of the new country until the arrival of 
the Mayflower with a party of forty-six New England emigrants, at the 
mouth of the Muskingum river, on the seventh day of April, 1788. In 
the absence of the constituted authority, Colonel Return Jonathan 
.Meigs, father of the judge of that name, drew up a code of rules on a 
sheet of ordinary foolscap, which he published by tacking them to the 
trunk of a large oak tree on the site of the infant settlement. This was 
the first legislation in the territory, and it is said that the code was 
rigidly adhered to by the pioneers of that country. The late General 
Manning F. Force, in an historical sketch In "Bench and Bar of Ohio" 
(1897), Is authority for the statement that "history has recorded no 
infraction of these regulations which were read and approved by all." 

Governor St. Clair, who had been occupied since his appointment 
In continuous efforts to conciliate the Indians of the territory, and in 
preparing for the needs of the Infant settlement, arrived at Marietta 
with his official family on Wednesday, July 9, and on Tuesday, July 
15, In public ceremonies held in the three-months-old town of Marietta, 
entered upon the discharge of his official duties. The Ordinance of 
1787 was read to the settlers by Secretary Winthrop Sargent, after 
Avhich the commissions of the Governor, Secretary and Judges were 
publicly read, and the Governor addressed the people briefly. 

The territorial government thus set up consisted of the following 
officers who were present and participated in the ceremony: Gover- 
nor, Arthur St. Clair; Secretary, Winthrop Sargent; Judges, Parsons 
and Varnum.

Each of the above laws was undersigned by Messrs. St. Clair, 
Parsons, and Varnum, on the dates given, the signature of Judge John 
Cleves Symmes appearing on the law of August 30 — establishing a 
Court of Probate — ^but on no other. His arrival in the colony is thus 
fixed at a much earlier day than that given in most authorities. — (Terri- 
torial Laws.) 

Governor St. Clair withheld his approval to a proposed law re- 
lating to estates held in common ; he also; on July 30, called the atten- 
tion of the judges to the provision of the ordinance which empowered 
them to ''adopt" the laws of the older states, and expressed it as his 
opinion that they were overstepping their authority in forming new 
laws in any case ; "And when we do," he adds, "the necessity of the 
case only can be our justification." This opinion of the Governor 
was fully borne out, when, at a later period, the council found it wise 
to repeal by wholesale laws of their own making which had no foun- 
dation in the code of the older states, and adopt others which con- 
formed to this requirement in their stead.- — (St. Clair Papers.) 

Judge Varnum died in 1789.

THE SECOND LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. 
(1789.) 

THE ratification of the Constitution of the United States by a 
sufficient number of states having occurred during the latter 
part of the year 1784, and President Washington having as- 
sumed the reins of government thereunder, it was construed to be the 
duty of the Executive to appoint such officers whose commissions, 
having been issued by the Congress under the old form of government, 
were held to have expired with that government. In pursuance of this 
conception of his duty, the President, in a letter dated New York, 
August 18, 1789, nominated for the officers of the Northwest Territory : 
Arthur St. Clair, for Governor, and Messrs. Samuel Holden Parsons, 
John Cleves Symmes, and William Barton (vice Varnum, deceased), 
Judges. The nominations were confirmed by the Senate of the United 
States, but Mr. Barton declining the appointment, the President nom- 
inated Mr. George Turner, who was confirmed on the eighth day of 
September. 

There is no public record of the acts of the council during the year 
1789. In November of this year. Judge Parsons, who was the Chief 
Justice of the court, was drowned in a ford in the Muskingum valley, 
while returning to the seat of government from, a treaty council with 
the Indians of the Western Reserve.

THE THIRD LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. 
(1790.) 

THE year 1790 was marked by the sitting of the Council in the 
farther west, at the town of Vincennes (more generally known 
at that day by the name of "au Post"). Winthrop Sargent, 
Secretary and acting Governor, sat with Messrs. Symmes and Turner, 
Governor St. Clair being absent in the eastern states, and no successor' 
sitting in the room of Judge Parsons, who had been succeeded by 
General Rufus Putnam, Jr., of Marietta. This council, in its meeting 
at Vincennes, published the following laws, which were afterwards 
disapproved and ordered to be repealed by the Congress, as having no 
foundation in the older laws to which the territorial council was con- 
fined by the Ordinance of 1787. 

July 19 — An act prohibiting the giving or selling of intoxicating 
liquors to Indians. 

July 26. — An act restricting the sale of intoxicating liquors to 
soldiers, and to prevent the pawning or selling of arms, ammunition, 
clothing and accoutrements. 

August 4 — An act suppressing gambling and making void all con- 
tracts and payments made in consequence thereof. 

Removing to the town of Cincinnati, the council passed, in No- 
vember — Governor St. Clair having resumed his attendance with the 
body, and Secretary Winthrop Sargent retiring — the following laws : 

November 4 — An act to alter the terms of the General Court. 

November 5 — An act to augment the terms of the County Courts. 

November 6 — An act to authorize the Courts of Quarter Sessions 
to divide the counties into townships, and to appoint constables, over- 
seers of the poor, and township clerks.

THE LAWS OF 1791. 

THE body to which has been given in this volume the designation

no change in its official membership, except that in the absence 
of the Governor his seat was occupied by the Secretary as Acting 
Governor, from the appointment of Judge Putnam in the winter of 
1790 to 1796, when Judge Putnam resigned his seat on the bench and 
in the council to accept the office of Surveyor General of the United 
States, to which he had been appointed by President Washington. 

Messrs. St. Clair, Symmes and Turner affixed their signatures to 
the following laws in the year 1791, and caused the same to be pub- 
lished at Cincinnati :

THE LAWS OF 1795. 

THE council sitting in 1795, in the town of CinciniTati, devoted the 
months of June, July and August to a careful revision of the 
code laws then in use in the territory, and by an act of repeal 
(See law of July 14 in list below) eliminated tho'se laws to which, as 
exceeding the authority of the council, the Congress had objected, at 
the same time putting into operation new laws in their stead, which, 
by careful citation of the authority of some one of the original states, 
attested the propriety of such act by council.

vSt. Clair and Judges Symmes and Turner, who- certified, and caused to

IN December, 1796, Judge Putnam, who had been appointed a briga-

appointment led to the resignation of Judge Putnam, who was suc- 
ceeded on the bench by Joseph Oilman, of Point Harmar. - 

This council has left no record of new legislation in this year.

(1798.)

in the winter of 1797-8 and was succeeded by Return Jonathan Meigs, 
Jr., of Marietta. The council, as thus formed, met in Cincinnati, April 
23, 1798, and on the first day of May published the iollowing new

THE FIRST SESSION OF THE FIRST TERRITORIAL 
LEGISLATURE. 

IN the year 1798, Governor St. Clair, having by personal visits to 
the several settlements become satisfied of the presence of the 
iiecessary five thousand white male inhabitants in the territory, 
issued a proclamation to the people calling for the election of repre- 
sentatives to a general assembly to be convened at Cincinnati on the 
fourth day of February, 1799. This general assembly, under the ordi- 
nance of 1787, must consist of a House of Representatives, together 
with a Legislative Council of five members to be appointed by the 
President of the United States, from a list of ten names to be sub- 
mitted to him by the House of Representatives when so elected. The 
representatives were chosen in accordance with the proclamation of 
the Governor, and on assembling at Cincinnati on the day named in 
the proclamation, February 4, nominated the members of council and 
adjourned to meet in Cincinnati on the sixteenth of the following 
September, in order that the President would have an opportunity 
to act. Of the ten names submitted for his inspection and approval, 
the President nominated to the United States Senate as members of 
the Territorial Council (or upper house) : Jacob Burnet and James 
Findlay of Cincinnati ; Henry Vanderburgh of Vincennes ; Robert 
Oliver of Marietta, and David Vance of Vanceville. 

These nominations were promptly confirmed by the Senate and 
transmitted to Cincinnati, where they were announced to the people 
by proclamation of the Governor. 

On the sixteenth day of September, 1799, the First Territorial 
Legislature met in Cincinnati, the two houses being composed of the 
following gentlemen :

Worthington, Thomas, of Ross County (Chillicothe). 

The two houses having met and organized by the election of their 
officers, on the sixteenth day of September, on the following day Gov- 
ernor St. Clair addressed the legislature in eloquent terms, congratu- 
lating the body and the Territory on the new form of legislative gov- 
ernment in which the people now had a direct voice in the conduct 
of affairs. Jacob Burnet, a member of the council, writing after the 
lapse of a half a century, says in his "Notes on thei Northwest Terri- 
tory" (Cincinnati, 1847) • 

"He laid before them a full and faithful view of the condition 
and the wants of the Territory, and recommended to their attention 
such measures as he believed were proper to advance the prosperity 
and happiness of the people" (p. 300). 

Governor St. Clair had been in active discharge of the duties of 
the chief executive of the Territory continuously since he had super- 
vised the dispatch of the first settlers to the then unsettled west in 
1788; he had joined the first colony at Marietta within three months 
of its arrival (July, 1788), and had been one of the legislators for 
the colonies up to the time of the meeting of this first territorial as- 
sembly ; out of the experience of over eleven pioneer years, the Governor 
spoke to the legislators of the work before them, as no better equipped 
man could speak, for there was no man of better equipment for the 
duty. Of Governor St. Clair's influence at this time Mr. Burnet says 
(p- 378) : "And it may be said with great truth, that at the time, he 



4

The First Session of the First Territorial Legislature. 



addressed the First Territorial Legislature in 1799, lie. possessed as 
great, if not a greater share of the confidence and respect of the people 
of the Territory than any other individual residing in it." 

This being the first session of any representative legislative body 
in the Territory, the transition from the first to the second grade of 
government involved a general revision of the laws in force; new 
laws to meet the changed conditions; new officers and new duties for 
those already established ; and a plan must be conceived by which to 
meet the increased expenditures of a semi-independent government. 
Many of the members being inexperienced in legislative matters, the 
active work of the session fell on a few of the men who had been 
most closely identified with the previous history of the settlements. 

On the third of October the two houses in joint session elected 
William Henry Harrison as delegate from the Territory in the Con- 
gress of the United States, his election being contested by Arthur St. 
Clair, Jr., who was beaten by one vote. Captain Harrison was secre- 
tary of the Territory at the time of his election, -Mr. St. Clair, son of 
the Governor, being its attorney. Mr. Harrison resigned his position 
as secretary and at once proceeded to his duties in the Congress. 

It is hard to present the history of this session of the legislature in 
the limits allowed in a publication of this nature. The existing laws 
were a poor apology for a code; the Ordinance of 1787 formed a broad 
and liberal basis for the government which has since grown up under 
its provisions, but there was much legislation needed to supplement 
and make practical its several declarations. The governor and the 
judges had selected or made laws, from time to time, neglecting many 
important interests, and imperfectly providing for others which were 
touched upon; one of the statutes of Virginia had been adopted which 
put in operation the English common law and certain English statutes 
of a date prior to the fourth year of the reign of James 1. ; statutes from 
the original states had been called upon to supply, in whole or in part, 
contributions to the code of statute law in the Territory, and there 
fell upon the legislature at this first session the duty of ''repealing, 
amending, enacting and supplementing," in such manner as appealed 
to the best judgment of the pioneers who composed the body, until on 
their adjournment on the nineteenth day of December, 1799, there 
had been laid the foundation for much of the subsequent public law 
in the Territory and in those states which have been carved out of it. 

Following is a summary of the acts of this assembly :

THE SECOND SESSION OF THE FIRST TERRITORIAL 

LEGISLATURE. 

(Chillicothe, November 3, 1800.) 

IT was in connection with the work of this first session of the legis- 
lature that the signs of approaching disagreement with the gov- 
ernor made their appearance. Governor St. Clair assumed that 
he was a branch of the assembly and that he had an absolute right to 
veto the acts of the two houses. He claimed the right, as governor, 
to lay out and change the boundaries of counties under the Ordinance 
of 1787, regardless of the expressions from the legislature, and was no 
doubt sincere in his efforts to perform that which he looked upon as 
his sworn duty. The result of his action was, however, to bring about 
a strained relation which only grew in force as time went on. Judge 
Burnet says, in the book already quoted: ''The effect of the construc- 
tion he gave of his own power may be seen in the fact that of thirty 
bills passed by the two houses during the first session, and sent to 
him for his approval, he refused assent to eleven, some of which were 
supposed to be of much importance, and all of them calculated, more 
or less, to advance the public interest. Some of them he rejected be- 
cause they related to the establishment of new counties; others because 
he thought they were unnecessary or inexpedient. Thus, more than 
a third of the fruits of the labor of that entire session was lost by the 
exercise of the arbitrary discretion of one man." (p. 376.) 

In this connection it may be well to add that the governor was 
not sustained in his position when he submitted to the Senate of the 
United States his report of new counties laid out after the; legislature 
of the territory had come into existence. It was held that the gover- 
nor of the Territory had exhausted his authority when he had once 
laid out the whole territory into counties (which Governor St. Clair 
had done early in his administration) and that subsequent rearrange- 
ments or divisions vested solely in the territorial legislature. This 
decision was not reached in time to prevent a recurrence of the dif- 
ferences between the governor and the legislature at its second session 
in 1800, but was gratifying to those members who had been engaged 
on the legislative side of the question during the first two sessions. 

The legislature stood prorogued to meet at Cincinnati on the first 
Monday in November, 1800. By reference to an act of Congress of 
the United States May 7 of that year (See Part One), it will be noticed 
that after the adjournment of the first session of the legislature, the 
Northwest Territory was divided by a line running due north from 
the mouth of the Kentucky River, into an eastern part which retained

the old name and government, and a western part which was given 
the name of the territory of Indiana, and a new government of the 
first grade estabhshed therein, the officers of which were to be ap- 
pointed by the President. This act of Congress was acquiesced in by 
the Governor and legislature of the territory with great reluctance, 
and was regarded by the best men in the Territory to be an unwar- 
ranted assumption of legislative power on the part of Congress. Presi- 
dent Vanderburgh of the council was thus legislated out of office and 
became a citizen of the new territory. Representatives Shadrack Bond, 
of St. Clair County; John Edgar, of Randolph County, and John 
Small, of Knox County, also lost their seats in the House of Repre- 
sentatives for the same reason, and the constituents of these gentle- 
men were summarily deprived of a voice and a membership in that 
local territorial government, for which they had but recently voted. 
The seat of government for the new territory was fi::ed by Congress 
at Vincennes, and the same act named the village oi ChilHcothe, in- 
stead of the already established capital at Cincinnati, as the seat of 
government for the old territory. It was charged that this act of Con- 
gress was urged by two or three ardent and aggressive spirits who 
hoped to bring about an early state government in Ohio, and were 
already planning to accomplish the removal of Governor St. Clair and 
his administration. 

Pursuant to the call issued by the Governor under the new order, 
the members of the legislature met in ChilHcothe on the third day of 
November, 1800. This was almost exactly one hundred years ago, it 
being an interesting fact that the editor writes these lines on the 
twenty-sixth of October, 1900. The council met in the house of Joseph 
Tiffin, the council chamber in the new capitol not being reg.dy for 
occupancy. As there is no record to the contrary, it is probable that 
the representatives were better provided for. The compositfon of 
the legislature at this second session was as follows : 

IN the council. 

Jacob Burnet, of Hamilton County (Cincinnati). 
Robert Oliver, of Washington County (Marietta). 
David Vance, of Jefferson County (Vanceville). 
James Findlay, of Hamilton County (Cincinnati). 

Mr. Vanderburg, of Vincennes, having for reasons already given, 
lost his seat in the council, Mr. Oliver was elected president of that 
body, Mr. William C. Schenck (secretary of the Territory) acting as 
secretary to the council, and William Rutledge being elected door- 
keeper. To fill the vacancy in council the Governor requested the 
House of Representatives to nominate to the President of the United

The Second Session of the First Territorial Legislature. 



States two names from which to make a selection, and on the ninth 
of November the names of Solomon Sibley, of Detroit, and Samuel 
Findlay (Finley?), of Cincinnati, were chosen. The seat remained 
vacarit until the session of 1801, owing to the time necessarily con- 
sumed in forwarding the nominations to the national capitol and in 
returning the appointment to the Territory. 

IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES. 

The following members were present or took their seats at a later day : 

Benham, Robert, of Hamilton County. 

Chobert de Joncaire, Charles F., of Wayne County (Detroit). 

Darlington, Joseph, of Adams County. 

Fearing, Paul, of Washington County. 

F'indlay, Samuel, of Ross County. 

Goforth, William, of Hamilton County. 

Kimberly, Zenas, of Jefferson County. 

Langham, Elias, of Ross County (contested seat). 

Ludlow, John, of Hamilton County (Vice Caldwell, removed 
from the Territory). 

Lytle, William, of Hamilton County. 

McMillan, William, of Hamilton County. 

Martin, Isaac, of Hamilton County. 

Massie, Nathaniel, of Adams County (Seated November 10). 

Meigs, Return J., Jr., of Washington County. 

Pritchard, James, of Jefferson County. It 

Sibley, Solomon, of Wayne County (Detroit). J 

Smith, John, of Hamilton County. I 

Tiffin, Edward, of Ross County. J 

Visgar, Jacob, of Wayne County (Detroit). | 

Worth in gton, Thomas, of Ross County. . | 

^ Edward Tiffin was elected Speaker of the House. t 

One of the first duties devolving on the legislature was the elec- 
tion of a delegate to Congress to succeed Captain William Henry Har- 
rison, who had resigned to accept the appointment as governor of the 
territory of Indiana, and also to elect a delegate for the long term be- 
ginning on the fifth day of March, 1801. On the sixth day of Novem- 
ber the two houses met in joint session in accordance with a previous 
resolution to that eft'ect, and elected as delegates to Congress : Will- 
iam McMillan, of Hamilton County, for the unexpired term ending 
March 4, 1801, and Paul Fearing, of Washington County, for the term 
ending on the fourth day of March, 1803. 

As will be noticed, the selections were made from the members 
of the House of Representatives. 



tHE BIOGRAPHICAL ANNALS OF OHIO. 155 

The Second Session of the First Territorial Legislature. 



Mr. McMillan at once resigned from the House and proceeded to 
his new duties. 

The work of legislation was begun with mutual expressions, of 
regard between the Governor and the members of the assembly, not- 
withstanding the differences of the preceding winter. On November 5, 
the Governor visited the joint assembly and delivered an annual mes- 
sage of kindly tone in which he spoke of the near approach of the end 
of his term of office and of their own. He mentioned the efforts of 
his adversaries only to remark : "The remorse of their own consciences 
will one day be punishment sufficient. Their acts may, however, suc- 
ceed. Be that as it may, this I am certain, that, be my successor who 
he may, he can never have the interests of the people of this Territory 
more truly at heart than I have had for them, nor laboj: more assidu- 
ously for their good than I have done; and I am not conscious that 
any one act of my administration has been influenced by any other 
motive than a sincere desire to promote their welfare and happiness." 

To this the assembly drafted its formal reply and asked the Gov- 
ernor to fix an hour when he could receive the committee and hear 
the same. On receiving an intimation of his convenience, the com- 
mittee formally waited on him in the executive chamber at 10 o'clock 
a. m., Monday, November 17, and afterward returned to their respect- 
ive houses bearing with them the formal reply of his excellency to 
their address. This second communication from St. Clair is a feeling 
response to the expressions of confidence in which the House hart 
clothed its message to him. 

Governor St. Clair, in a message to the House December 2, i8(5o, 
calls to their attention the fact that, as his term of office expires in one 
week from that day, it will be necessary that the session must end on 
'that day, and therefore any business of importance to be transacted 
should not be too long postponed. He says in this case the Secretary 
of the Territory cannot supply to the Assembly the place of a Governor. 

French .inhabitants of the County of Wayne presented to the 
House, December 4, a petition in French language which was referred 
to Messrs. Kimberly and Visger for translation, (p. 95.) This com- 
mittee reported later in the day that the petition was for a redress of 
certain grievances, and it was referred to the Committee on Proposi- 
tions and Grievances. 

A proposition was submitted that the assembly should hokl ius 
sessions in rotation as follows : The first session to be held in the 
town of Marietta, the second in the town of Cincinnati, and the third 
in the town of Chillicothe. This was agreed to by the House, 10 to 8. 

A motion to hold the sessions in Cincinnati was lost, 4 to 14. The 
bill was finally defeated by striking out the enacting clause, on a vote 
not given, (p. 109.) 

Adjourned by the Governor December 9, t8oo. (S. J., p. yy.)

The First Session of the Secand Territorial General Assembly, 



The House organized on the twenty-fourth of November by the 
election of the following officers : Edward Tiffin, Speaker ; John Reilly, 
Clerk. 

The seats of Messrs. Scheifflin and McDougall, of Wayne County, 
were contested, but they were declared to be entitled to their seats. 

The finances of the Territory were in such condition that the 
governor, who Jiad been reappointed during the adjournment of the 
assembly, in his address at a joint session of the two houses called to 
be held in ''Mr. Gregg's Hall" for the purpose said : "The Territory is 
in debt in the sum of $5,419 beyond the whole revenue for the present 
year. A new emission of bills (of credit) must be made, even to meet 
the expenses of the present session. A wretched expedient, it is true, 
because the bills suffer a depreciation in the hands they pass through, 
and the public pays the full interest." 

During this session of the General Assembly, a bill was passed 
transferring the seat of government to Cincinnati, from which city 
it had been removed by a provision in the territorial act of 1800, and 
as an expression of feeling on the part of the local inhabitants, a num- 
ber of the members of the legislature, and also the governor, were 
set upon in Chillicothe on the twenty-fifth and twenty-sixth of Decem- 
ber. The matter was made a subject for official investigation. 

At 12 o'clock noon, on January twenty-third, the Council attended 
the chamber of the House of Representatives in a body, where the 
joint assembly was addressed by Governor St. Clair, and adjourned 
by him to meet in second session in Cincinnati on the fourth Monday 
of the following November (1802). It should be noted here that this 
proposed second session of the second and last territorial legislature 
was never held. The reason is given in the following interesting ex- 
tract from the memoirs of a member of the Council speaking of the 
first constitutional convention : 

"As the territorial legislature was in existence, and stood ad- 
journed, to meet at Cincinnati on the fourth Monday in November, 
three weeks ^ after the opening of the convention, a resolution was 
passed, directing their president to request the governor to dissolve 
or prorogue that body. Such a precaution was altogether unneces- 
sary, as no disposition existed among the members, either to embar- 
rass, or in any way interfere with the movements of the convention. 
That such a disposition did not exist was verified by the fact that 
the day for the meeting of the legislature came and passed ; the mem- 
bers remaining at home as by common consent. No attempt was 
n\ade by the governor, or by any of the members, to convene that 
body, till its existence was terminated, and it was succeeded by the

The First Session of the Second Territorial General Assembly. 

The salaries of the governor and territorial judges were paid by the general 
government until the adoption of the Constitution of Ohio, but the other expenses 
of the local government were paid by the Territory. This bill appropriates the 
sum of twelve thousand dollars for what, is called a contingent fund, and then 
provides for its disbursement in detail. Some of the items are interesting as 
conveying information as to the nature and amount of the territorial expenses 
a hundred years ago. 

The governor is allowed fifty dollars for postage "upon letters of a public 
nature." 

The treasurer is allowed ten dollars for stationery for his office and fifty 
dollars for the purchase of "an iron chest for the territory." 

The private secretary to the governor is allowed three dollars per day for 
time actually employed, but is not allowed more than thirty days' pay in the year. 

The legislature is allowed a total sum of eight thousand five hundred dollars. 

From the general fund, the following allowances were ordered: 

To Arthur St. Clair, Jr., attorney-general, a salary of $400. 

To the auditor of public accounts, a salary of $750. 

To the auditor of public accounts, postage for two years, $75.41. 

To auditor of public accounts, extra clerk hire, $95. 

To the territorial treasurer, a salary of $400. 

To Daniel McAllister, fire-wood, $26. 

To William Rutledge, repairs two houses, $4. , 

To James Phillips, three dozen chairs for the legislature, $72.

THE BIOGRAPHICAL ANNALS OF OHIO. 163 



THE QUESTION OF THE BOUNDARY OF THE STATE, 

THE question of boundary, though not expressly referred to the 
convention (The Constitutional Convention of 1802) was one 
of greater importance than would appear at first view. It is 
generally known to those who have consulted the maps of the western 
country extant at the time the Ordinance of 1787 was passed, that 
Lake Michigan was represented as being very far north of the posi- 
tion which it has since been ascertained to occupy. On a map in the 
Department of State (at Washington) which was before the Com- 
mittee of Congress who formed the ordinance for the government of 
the Territory, the southern boundary of that lake was laid down as 
being near the forty-second degree of north latitude, and there was a 
pencil line passing through the southern bend of the lake, to the Can- 
ada line, which intersected the strait between the River Raisin and 
the town of Detroit. The line was manifestly intended by the com- 
mittee, and by Congress, to be the northern boundary of this state; 
and that map, and the line marked on it, should have been taken as 
conclusive evidence of the boundary, without reference to the actual 
position of the southern extreme of the lake. 

When the Convention was in session in 1802, it was the prevail- 
ing opinion that the old maps were correct; and that the line, as de- 
fined in the ordinance, would terminate at some point on the strait 
far above the Maumee Bay; but, while that subject was under discus- 
sion, a man who had hunted many years on Lake Michigan and was 
well acquainted with its position, happened to be in Chillicothe, and 
in conversation with some of the members, mentioned to them that 
the lake extended much farther south than was generally supposed; 
and that a map he had seen placed its southern bend many miles north 
of its true position. His statement produced some apprehension and 
excitement on the subject, and. induced the convention to change the 
line prescribed in the act of Congress, so far as to provide that if it 
should be found to strike Lake Erie below the Maumee River, as the 
hunter informed them it would, then the boundary of the state should 
be a line drawn from the point where the prescribed line intersected 
the west boundary of the state, direct to the most northern cape of 
Maumee Bay. That provision saved to the State of Ohio the valuable 
ports and harbors on the Maumee River and bay, which were the 
prize contended for in the "Michigan war of Governor Lucas." "Yet 
some of the members (of the Convention) hesitated in making the 
provision, lest it might cause delay; but fortunately it was adopted 
and its object is now secure." (Burnett's "Notes on the Northwestern 
Territory," 1847, P- 3^0.) (See also the language of the Acts of Con- 
gress, 1800, 1802-1812, quoted in Part I of this publication.— Editor.) 



164 THE BIOGRAPHICAL ANNALS OF OHIO. 

THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY OF THE STATE OF OHIO. 

(1803-1904.) 

THE third legislative body to come into power in the territory 
comprised in the present state was the General Assembly of 
the State of Ohio, which, following the adopt' on of the State 
Constitution and the admission of the state into the Union of States^ 
was organized for its first session, on the first day of March, 1803. 

The legislative body thus inaugurated has been an enormous 
factor for good in the onward and forward progress of Ohio during the 
past hundred years. No groiip of men have served the state with so little 
personal gain as have her legislators. No body of public men has done 
so much to encourage morality, industry and patriotism. The wonder of 
it is — not that legislators have occasionally made personal mistakes — but 
that in no matter what strait or dilemma, Ohio has always had in her 
service, practically without compensation, so many men who were not 
only patrio;'"^, but micn who exhibited the wisdom and had the courage 
to handle the affairs of state with honor to themselves, to their con- 
stituents and the name of an Ohioan. When the enormous power of 
a General Assembly is fairly understood, the more honor is found to 
be due those men who, since" the first settler landed on the western 
bank of the Ohio, in 1788, have never used that power as a body, ex- 
cept to advance the state in dignity and in prosperity, and in evidences 
of fealt)^ in every hour of danger to the general government. More 
or less acquaintance with members of recent assemblies, and a quite 
studious attention to the records of the past century in Ohio, gives 
point to these observations.

JAMES M. WILLIAMS, of Cleveland. 

President Pro Tern, of the Senate. 

WAS born in Plainfield, Coshocton County, Ohio, July 22, 1850. His father, 
Heslip Williams, a leading physician of Coshocton County, was a native 
of Ohio, and a member of the House of Representatives of this State in 
1845 and 1846, and of the Senate in 1854 and 1855. His grandfather, Levi 
Williams, was a native of Staunton, Virginia. He came to this State with 
General Wayne's army at the time of the establishment of the Greenville treaty 
line. He was a captain in the service, and on their march West the army en- 
camped where the public square of Cleveland is now located. His great-grand- 
father, David Williams, and his great-great-grandfather, Richard Williams, 
were both in the Colonial Army during the War of the Revolution, and were 
in General Washington's army at the surrender of Yorktown. His ancestors 
on the paternal side came originally from England, settling in Virginia. His 
mother, Charlotte Miskimen, was also a native of Ohio. Her father, James 
Miskimen, came to Ohio in 1803, from Washington County, Maryland. Mr. 
Williams' education was obtained in the common schools of his native county, 
at the Newcomers town, Ohio, high school, and at Allegheny College, Meadville, 
Pennsylvania, where he graduated in the class of 1873. He studied law in 
the office of Judge J. C. Pomerene, of Coshocton, and was admitted to the 
bar in September, 1875. He practiced law at Coshocton until 1888, when he 
removed to Cleveland. He enlisted as a private soldier in Company C, 3rd 
United States Cavalry, during the late Civil War, when he was only thirteen 
years old, and served in campaigns in Tennessee, Mississippi and Arkansas.

In 1883, Mr. Williams edited the Revised Statutes of Ohio, in three volumes, 
which was afterward adopted by the General Assembly and furnished to the 
judiciary and all other State and County officers. In 1885, he was elected a 
member of the House of Representatives of this State, as a Democrat, serving 
for two years. While in the Legislature he was a member of the Committees 
on Judiciary, Revision of the Laws, and Public Works, and was chairman of the 
special committee which prepared a code of parliamentary law for the Ohio 
House of Representatives. He drafted the statute passed in 1885, providing 
for the organization and jurisdiction of the Circuit Courts of the State, and 
the constitutional amendment adopted in the same year changing the time of 
holding the State elections from October! to November; also the proposed con- 
stitutional amendments submitted in 1889, providing for biennial elections and 
for single legislative districts. He is the author of the laws, passed in 1887, 
defining the rights and liabilities of husband and wife; how a married person 
may sue and be sued in courts of record; and exempting every honorably dis- 
charged soldier from the two days' labor, then required, on the public high- 
ways. Mr. Williams is well known as a practitioner before the Supreme Court 
of Ohio. He has appeared frequently before that court in causes involving im- 
portant constitutional questions. His arguments have always been character- 
ized by clear and forcible statement, searching analysis, and great argumenta- 
tive power. In the notable case of Cope vs. Foraker, governor, the issue was 
the adoption or rejection of the biennial elections amendment to the Con- 
stitution; and the plaintiff applied for a writ of mandamus to compel the 
governor to declare by proclamation the amendment adopted, .because it re- 
ceived a majority of the votes cast directly on the question, though not a ma- 
jority of all the votes cast at the election. The utmost interest was felt in the 
decision, and few abler and more ingenious arguments were ever made before 
the Supreme Court of Ohio than that of Mr, Williams in behalf of the adoption 
of the amendment. Equal praise was elicited by his argument before that 
court in the application for a mandamus in State vs. Sawyer, sheriff of Cuy- 
ahoga County. The points made by Mr. Williams, in a masterly argument, 
were sustained, and the unanimous decision of the court was, that proclama- 
tion must issue, and four judges of the Common Pleas Court be elected for 
Cuyahoga County, with the other county officials, in November, 1889, instead 
of 1890. 

He was the nominee of his party for Judge of the Common Pleas Court in 
1888 and 1894, but was not elected. He was chos*en at the November election, 
1905, one of the Senators from the Cleveland District by a majority of 10,002, 
and on the organization of the General Assembly, he was chosen President pro 
tem. of the Senate. 

Besides his duties as President pro tem, of the Senate, he is chairman of 
the Committees on Commercial Corporations and Rules, and is also a member 
of the Committees on Judiciary, Taxation, County Affairs and Fees and Salaries. 

Mr. Williams was married in 1879 to Miss Mary S. Brockway, only 
daughter of Hon. Charles B. Brockway of Ripley, Chautauqua County, New 
York, by which union he has one child, a daughter, born in 1882. Mrs. Williams 
died in 1897. His home is at 2127 East 100th St., Cleveland.

BERT S. BARTLOW, of Hamilton. 
8ergeant-at-Arms of the Senate, 



(364) 



BERT S. BARTLOW was born in Franklin County, Indiana, July 10th, 1869. 
In 1876 he came with his parents to Butler County, Ohio, where he has since 
resided. He passed his boyhood days attending the public schools and dur- 
ing his vacations worked on the farm. In September, 1888, he was matriculated 
in the preparatory department of Miami University, at Oxford, and in the 
autumn of the following year he became a member of the freshman class. He 
was graduated with honors on the' 14th of June, 1893, having given special at- 
tention to economic and collateral subjects. He received the degree of Bachelor 
of Arts, and special honors in the department of political science. After his 
graduation, Mr. Bartlow studied law for several months in Hamilton, Ohio, 
where he now resides, and later became a special newspaper correspondent. 
In 1901, he was editor of the Butler County Press, and the next year, for several 
months after its founding, served as city editor of the Hamilton Evening Sun. 

Mr. Bartlow manifests great interest in the success of the principles of 
the Democratic party, and has proved a most able and successful campaign 
worker, having delivered numerous political addresses and represented his 
party in county, district, state and national conventions. In August, 1897, he 
was nominated as Representative of Butler County in the State Legislature, 
securing a plurality of six hundred and thirty-four votes over eight competitors 
in the primary election, while in thej following November election he received 
a majority of three thousand one hundred and fifty-one votes. He was chosen 
as his own successor in 1899, thus serving four consecutive years and being a 
member of the 73rd and 74th General Assemblies. His career as a legislator 
was marked by its sincerity and its usefulness, especially in the conservation 
of economy in public expenditures. In July, 1903, he was appointed a member 
of the Board of Deputy State SupeiTisors of Elections, for Butler County, in 
which he had previously served for four years as clerk, and he still retains 
this incumbency, being chief deputy of the board. January 1st, 1906, on the 
organization of the Senate of the 77th General Assembly, Mr. Bartlow was 
elected Sergeant-at-Arms. 

Mr. Bartlow is especially active in connection with fraternal society 
work, being a member of the Independent Order of Odd Fellows, Knights of 
Pythias, Knights of the Ancient Essenic Order, Tribe of Ben Hur and the 
Fraternal Censer. The latter society, of which he is the Supreme President, 
is an insurance order organized under the laws of Ohio, with its supreme ofiice 
located at Dayton. Mr. Bartlow was elected Supreme President of the order 
in the meeting of the Supreme Council at Dayton, in June, 1903, and was re- 
elected in July, 1904, for a further term of three years.

been engaged chiefly in fire insurance. He was on the Council and School 
Board of Avondale, the largest village in Ohio, since incorporated in Cincinnati. 
He was aid-de-camp on Gov. Hoadley's staff with rank of Colonel and rendered

THOMAS HUNT, Cincinnati. 

'T^HOMAS HUNT is a native of Belmont County, Ohio. His father was 
•■- Samuel P. Hunt, who studied medicine with Dr. Hoover in Barnesville, 
and who after he had finished his studies removed with his family to 
Cambridge, Guernsey County, when his son Thomas was two years of age. 
Here the family remained until the boy was nine years old, when Dr. Hunt 
removed again to Morrow, Warren County. 

Thomas Hunt attended the academy of Robert Way, near that place, and 
was later sent to St. Xavier's College at Cincinnati. Soon after returning home 
he learned the telegraphic art and was given charge of the office at Morrow 
along with that of the agency of the Little Miami Railroad at that place, which 
he held for twelve years, resigning then to take charge of a flour mill which he 
bought at Sterling, Illinois. Five years were spent there, making and ship- 
ping flour to the Chicago market, when he sold the business and was offered 
the agency of the L. C. & L. R. R. at Lexington, Ky. After two years was 
transferred to Danville, Ky., and after four years there resigned on account of 
ill health and after a few months' rest accepted a position in the office of his 
brother who was superintendent of a division of the East Tenn., Va. & Ga. 
R. R., with headquarters at Atlanta, Ga. After two years' service there the 
brothers went to Winfield, Kansas, where the younger brother, Samuel, was 
given charge of the construction of a branch of the Mo. Pacific R. R. After 
the same was finished he was made superintendent, with his brother Thomas 
as assistant in his office. After three years Thomas followed his brother to 
Ohio and was elected secretary and treasurer of the Cincinnati, Portsmouth & 
Va. R. R. Co.. which he held until the sale of that road to the Norfolk & 
Western R. R., and then returned to work for his health and to study the 
science of political economy. 

He was elected to the Ohio Senate in 1905 on the Democratic ticket. 
He had been a Republican in the days of Abraham Lincoln, but could not stand 
for that dreadful system of taxation called the tariff, which later became one 
of the tenets of the Republican party.

WILLIAM H. MECK, Dayton. 



(362) 



PROF. MECK HIGHLY HONORED BY SCHOOL COMMISSIONER 

BONEBRAKE. 

Efficient High School Instructor Now a Member of the State Board of School 

Examiners. 

MR. WILLIAM H. MECK, of the Steele High School, was appointed today 
by State School Commissioner Bonetorake, a member of the State Board 
of School Examiners, to succeed Superintendent Sharkey of Eaton, 
for a term of five years. 

The intelligence will be received by his many friends here and elsewhere 
with genuine gratification, and they will undoubtedly give him their heartiest 
felicitations on this deserved compliment to his worth. 

Mr. Meck's career is worthy of note. In his boyhood, as in his manhood, 
he realized that labor •was the only talisman of success. When a mere lad 
he taught in the rural schools of Crawford County for four years. Immediately 
after he was elected to the principalship of the AVapakoneta High School 
which position he held for three years. He closed his school relations there 
not without many evidences of regret and affectionate regard on the part of 
pupils and friends, to attend the Ohio Normal University, graduating in 1888. 
Subsequently, for two years he held the principalship of the Kent High School, 
relinquishing it to enter the Ohio Wesleyan University. Whil3 pursuing his 
studies there he was employed as a tutor in mathematics. He graduated in 
1894 in the classical course with high honors, they being given on the basis 
of scholarship. When he left the threshold of his alma mater, Dr. Bashford, 
the president, said: "Upon the whole I do not think that we have sent ouc 
for some years, a man better suited for the principalship of a high school, or 
the superintendency of schools than is Mr. Meek." 

When called to the Dayton High School he was principal of tho Sidney 
High School, the Board of Education there accepting his resignation with 
much reluctance, and only in consequence of his receiving an advanced sal- 
ary to what they were able to pay. For the past three years he has been 
one of the most popular and efficient instructors in the Steele High School. 
Colonel W. J. White, late superintendent of instruction, pays him this tribute: 
"His work with us has been uniformly successful and eminently satisfactory, 
and he has shown those qualities of mind and heart which endear him to his 
pupils and render his work a pleasure as well as a profit to those under his 
instruction and to those in authority over him. His reputation as a disciplinarian 
is unexcelled, and in all lines of school work he shows great strength." 

Miami University, famed for its eminent alumni and high scholarship, con- 
ferred on him last June the degree of Master of Arts, in view of his pro- 
fessional attainments and services. He was further honored at Put-in-Bay 
in July by being unanimously elected president of the high school section of 
the State Teachers' Association. 

As a teacher Mr. Meek has been eminently successful. He pursues the 
work of teaching with his whole heart. He possesses in a rare degree the 
gift of knowing how to impart knowledge to youthful minds. In the class 
room he lays aside all perfunctory austerities and puts every pupil in his 
presence at confiding ease. His manners are attractive, blending the urbanity 
of the gentleman with the cordiality of a friend. 

Mr. Meek is the first High School teacher appointed to the State Board 
of School Examiners — a fitting recognition of the High Schools of the state. — 
Dayton (Ohio) Daily Press, August 31, 1898. 



(363) 



PROF. MECK. 

Reappointed on the State Board of Examiners. 

First to succeed himself since the enactment of Five-Year Law. 

Selection regarded as a high tribute to his conscientious efforts as well 
as the personal worth of Mr. Meek as an instructor. 

The reappointment of Prof. William H. Meek, of the Steele High School, 
Dayton, to succeed himself for- another term of five years on the State Board 
of Examiners, comes as a high tribute to the conscientious and efficient efforts 
as well as to the personal worth of Mr. Meek in his official capacity, 

Mr. Meek is a typical Buckeye — born, reared and educated in Ohio. He 
embodies besides the highest intellectual and moral traits and qualities, that 
honest aggressiveness long since identified with her sons; his prominent con- 
nection with her representative schools of the state has kept him in close 
touch with its system of education, enabling him to conserve the best inter- 
ests of pupils, teachers, officers and patrons. 

His advancement in his professional career is but natural and legitimate 
when his broad preparation by education, training and experience is consid- 
ered. Naturally of scholarly instincts, he early took advantage of the best 
facilities, and in 1888 was graduated from the Ohio Normal University; later 
entering the Ohio Wesleyan University, he graduated from that splendid old 
insiitution in 1894, with high honors and the degree of Bachelor of Arts. Con- 
tinuing his scholastic pursuits, Mr. Meek has won recognition from the Miami 
University, which in 1898 conferred on him the degree of Master of Arts. In 
addition he holds High School life certificates from Ohio and Michigan. He 
has frequently been called upon to address teachers' associations and to lec- 
ture before institutes. In 1898 he was chosen president of the High School 
section of the Ohio State Teachers' Association. 

Mr. Meek combines in a marked degree the attainments of a scholar and 
the rare qualities of a true teacher; his eight years' work in the Steele High 
School is of itself an enviable record, and a fitting testimonial of his superior 
qualifications as an instructor. He is also fortunate in an intimate knowledge 
of men and affairs, and his genial social qualities are evidenced by his wide 
acquaintance with the leading men in the educational and business world. 
Mr. Meek is prominent in fraternal circles, being a 32d degree Mason. 

His reappointment for another term of five years is the first instance of 
the kind since the fiveryear law went into effect fifteen years ago. He is the 
only High School man ever accorded the honor of a place on the State Board 
of Examiners, which is a gracious compliment to his broad culture, a test of 
the rare good judgment on the part of State School Commissioner Bonebrake, 
and a matter of sincere congratulation toi the patrons of the schools of Ohio. — 
Dayton Journal, August 31, 1903. 

Admitted to the bar December, 1904. Elected to the State Senate Novem- 
ber, 1905 (3d District, Montgomery and Preble Counties). Married Thanksgiv- 
ing day, 1905.

"DENJAMIN F. GAYMAN was born at Canal Winchester, Ohio, March 6th, 
-■-' 1858, and has resided there all his life. His paternal ancestors were 
among the earliest settlers of Pennsylvania, while those on his mother's 
side were pioneers of Maryland. The Gayman family, consisting of mother, 
seven sons and one daughter, came to Ohio in 1843, and settled at Canal 
Winchester. 

Upon completing his High School work in 1875, Mr. Gayman entered the 
office of the Canal Winchester Times as an apprentice, serving three years, 
and continuing his studies under private instruction. On reaching his ma- 
jority he purchased a half interest in The Times, which he still owns jointly 
with his brother. 

He has served as a member of the Council of Canal Winchester, and was 
four times elected mayor, without opposition. In 1891, 1895 and 1897 he was 
elected to represent Franklin County in the General Assembly. In 1905 he 
was elected to represent the Tenth Senatorial District, being the only Dem-

In 1881 Mr. Gayman was married to Miss Sallie C. Miller, daughter of a

time; the home was saddened, all of the children dying in infancy. 

He is a charter member of the Masonic and Knights of Pythias lodges of 
Canal Winchester, and has represented both orders in the Grand Lodges. 

In the make up of the Senate Committees Mr. Gayman was made chair- 
man of the Taxation Committee, a very important and most difficult place 
to fill, and one which requires much time and study. Mr. Cayman's experience 
as a newspaper man has made him a close observer and student of public 
affairs.

which is best.

Oak Springs, Butler County, Pa. He is of Scotch-Irish descent. He at- 
tended public schools until he was thirteen years old, and graduated 
from Harrisville High School at seventeen, married at 19. Left home without 
a dollar and worked in oil fields as a pumper at $60' per month for three 
months. Went to Big Shanty, McKean County, Pa., and engaged in grocery 
business with $10 capital. He built a cheap store room, and stocked up on 
credit in 1880'. After being in this business for eighteen months he took 
an interest in an oil lease, and made money for two years. He then engaged 
in the drug business at Bradford, Pa., up to 1886, when he devoted all his 
time to oil interests until he sold his holdings in 1890. 

He traveled extensively for one year when he made contract to sell goods 
on the road for a wholesale stationery house of Rochester, N. Y. 

In 1893 he again entered the oil fields, operating in Ohio, Indiana, and 
West Virginia, but was not successful, and lost all he had. In 1894 he moved 
to Prowling Green, where he now resides, and again made money in oil fields. 
In 1896 he went broke a second time and for thr«e months had nothing. In 
1897 he started again, this time as an oil broker and producer. In this he 
was most successful. Became a stock broker, and did business in all parts 
of the United States. Became a manufacturer- of Safety Steel Derricks at 
Deshler, Ohio. Is now one of the directors of the First National Bank, of 
Bowling Green, Ohio. He promoted the L. B. and B. G. Electric Railway, and

land in 1884, and has voted for all Democrats since that time. Mr. Beatty 
was never a candidate for public office until 1905, when he was' elected to the 
Ohio Senate from a Republican District. He has always been a generous 
contributor in political campaigns, even though not a candidate. His wife, 
one daughter and himself constitute his family. As Senator Mr. Beatty has 
had much to do with the important legislation enacted. He was chiefly in- 
strumental in securing the repeal of the inheritance tax law.

WILLIAM DOUGLAS DITMARS. 

I WAS borir same as others. Ever since Monday morning of the week 
the Civil war broke out, I have been getting older. I came in time for 

the war but didn't go. I kept/ the war going, however, as long as I could. 
My father was of Holland descent and my mother full Irish. They were both 
good people. They gave me good raising on the farm in Holmes County, where 
I was produced, educating me in the district school, the High School of Shreve, 
and in the Baldwin University at Berea, Ohio. They gave me all my brothers 
and sisters before I was bom. They taught me to work and they set before me 
their lives full of noble and Christian examples. They lived to be ripe with 
age, and I shall never forget the two sad days when I stood with breaking 
heart at the open grave of each of them, and saw them returned to Mother 
Earth; but my grief has been lessened day by day until their graves have be- 
come to me a place of peace, and a comfort to my soul. My, but they were 
good people. 

I am a farmer and a member of the House of Representatives from the 
County of Holmes, where Democracy stands for as high citizenship, as broad 
culture and as pure government as anywhere else in the world. For a 
term of six years I had the marriage ceremony in my office to use, and all 
those I glued together with it are united yet. I had this glue used on me 
once, and as a result, Grace Elenor Greenwalt, of Ft. Wayne, Indiana, is my 
wife, and Douglas Doyle, a lad of ten years, is our child. I can recommend 
this paste to those of my fellow members of the House who wear the bare 
brow of bachelors. 

Am on the committee of Common Schools and Public Highways and) Turn- 
pikes. Am not cranky to make speeches nor to introduce bills; but the Dutch 
and Irish in me stand sentinel over my vote that it be directed aright, and 
not miss the object for which it was given me by good, old Father Washington 
and my parental ancestors of his day. I prize it highly. The lobby has found 
it too high priced for them, and when I want to realize fully the true value 
of my vote I go to my room at home where I have safely stored away a 
Revolutionary gun that one of my parental ancestors carried in the army of 
New Jersey under Washington, and as I look upon that dear old relic I can 
realize quite fully the value of my vote. God bless that old gun! 

The lobbyists here are, some good, some bad, and some worse. The 
worse are a bane to good legislation, who would misdirect a vote, the most 
sacred gift man ever fell heir to. Begone from the State house, you dare- 
devil you. 

My desire is to serve my constituents' will; and, as I have been asked 
to drop a few biographical words under my portrait, I am now at liberty to 
thank you for your attention as you pass on to the next.

DR. JAS. O. HAWKINS. 

DURING the eighteen years of Dr. J. O. Hawkins' residence in Wellston, 
he has gone steadily to the front in his profession and in the estimation 
of the people. Born on a farm in Hocking County, Ohio, he was brought 
up as the son of a farmer until he was 16 years of age, attending the country 
district school during the winter months and assisting in the farm work 
during the summer. At this age he entered the public schools of Nelson- 
ville for one year. About 1872 his parents sold their mineral land holdings 
in the Hocking Valley and removed to Vinton County, near McArthur. The 
next two years of the Doctor's life was spent in district schools of the 
neighborhood and in the public schools of McArthur. Following these came 
four years of teaching, the intervals between terms being spent in college. 
He took a special course in anatomy and physiology at the Ohio State Univer- 
sity at Columbus, Ohio, and begun the study of dentistry in 1880 while 
teaching school. In the spring of 1881 he entered the office of Dr. A. M. 
Wright of McArthur, Ohio, where he continued his studies almost continually 
until July, 1883, at which time he succeeded to Dr. Wright's practice by pur- 
chase. Dr. Hawkins determined to seek larger fields, however, and in August, 
1884, he sold his business in McArthur and came to Wellston, where he has 
since resided, enjoying a continually increasing practice extending to all the 
surrounding towns and villages. 

A few weeks after coming to Wellston, Dr. Hawkins took a special course 
at the Post-Graduate School of Prosthetic Dentistry of Chicago, covering 
metal plate, porcelain, crown, bridge work and all the advanced methods. 
Dr. Hawkins has twice married, his first wife being Miss Lucy P. Hol- 
land, daughter of Dr. Holland of McArthur. She died in this city November 
1st, 1889. The present Mrs. Hawkins was Miss Nellie Hoop, daughter of 
the late Peter Hoop of this city. To this union one child has been born, 
Florence May, a Winsome little miss of 13 years. He has one of the mosc 
attractive homes in the city, at the corner of Broadway and Pennsylvania 
avenue, adjacent to which is his office. This office building was built only 
about two years ago and is an attractive cottage building of modern archi- 
tectural design containing reception room, operating room and laboratories. 
They are all elegantly furnished and thoroughly equipped with all the modern 
appliances for the practice of dentistry; in fact, there are few if any more 
up-to-date dental parlors in any of the larger cities, and the Doctor is a prac- 
titioner equal to the best. 

While wedded to his profession, the Doctor recognizes his duty as a 
citizen and finds some time to devote to public affairs. He was elected a 
member of the Board of Water Works in 1889 for a term of three years 
and was re-elected for a second term at the recent spring election. He has 
given much time to the study of water conditions and plans for their 
betterment, always keeping in mind the best interests of the public. He is 
a member of the Ohio Dental Society, a Third Degree Mason, a member of 
the Knights of Pythias, Red Men, and Modern Woodmen of America. He is a 
Republican in politics and a member of the M. E. church. By his own ability, 
energies and integrity, Dr. Hawkins has made for himself an enviable place 
in his profession and is an honored and respected citizen of the city of 
Wellston.

A. H. JUDY. 

AH. JUDY, serving his second term in the House of Representatives. At 
• the Democratic state convention held in 1905, Mr. Judy appeared before 
the Committee on Resolutions and submitted a plank for their con- 
sideration and an outline for the party's platform. Strange to say, the results 
of the deliberations of that committee included Mr. Judy's plank ^^ithout 
change, and the outline was followed almost without deviation. He was ap- 
pointed by Governor Herrick as a member of the committee to secure a 
location for a new hospital for the insane, and which is said to be the finest 
and cheapest site ever purchased for a state institution. It is located at Lima. 
His coolness and foresight helped in a great measure to solve the university 
muddle and bring about the adjustment reached. No member of either branch 
did more to promulgate the agricultural interests and secure the liberal ap- 
propriations for this branch of our state's interests than he. Keen and sin- 
cere, using his own judgment in determining matters, acting perfectly free 
and unprejudiced on all questions. Having had a large experience in agriculture, 
shipping, transportation and mercantile lines, and having been a close stu- 
dent of conditions* and people his record can only show him to be squarely on 
the side of his constituency at all times. In all the heated sessions wherever 
he is found, the same genteel, courteous manner is extended to friend and 
foe, which only adds to his strength among his fellows and associates.

JOSEPH P. KEALY. 

JOSEPH P. KEALY, Democrat, was elected to represent the people of Ham- 
ilton County on November 7, 1905. il& participated largely in the remark- 
able movement to overthrow the political machine built by George B. Cox 
in Cincinnati, which had controlled the affairs of Hamilton County and Cin- 
cinnati for a quarter of a century. 

Mr. Kealy, in company with the candidate for mayor — Judge Dempsey — 
canvassed the entire city and county, delivering over fifty speeches. He fear- 
lessly and uncompromisingly denounced "gang rule," and exposed the repre- 
hensible methods and the enormous grafting of the "Cox gang." Although the 
county of Hamilton had given Roosevelt over 40,000 majority the fall previous, 
Kealy was elected by almost 1,700 majority. This was Mr. Kealy's first ex- 
perience in public life, and his first outdoor speeches were made in his can- 
vass for' election. 

During the regular session of the 77th General Assembly he was unus- 
ually active for a new member. He was not placed on any important com- 
mittees, but he introduced a resolution into the House increasing the number 
of the Committee on Cities by one, and he was placed upon that important 
committee by the Speaker when the resolution carried. Mr. Kealy intro- 
duced the resolution to investigate the public affairs of Cincinnati and Hamil- 
ton County, which, with slight amendment, was subsequently passed by the 
Senate. The results of that investigation are now matters of history. 

Representative Kealy also introduced the bill providing for the repeal of 
the infamous Dana law, which passed both houses. Kealy's vote went for all 
reform measures, and in all matters where the people's interests and that 
of corporations clashed he was for the people. At the opening of the session 
he was selected by the Democrats as vice-leader, and he was not a disap- 
pointment. 

Mr. Kealy was born in Cincinnati on March 23, 1854, and was educated 
in the Cathedral school and in the Queen City Commercial College of Cin- 
cinnati. He is a journalist, and has written many children's stories.

the committee from further consideration of the same was lost by a vote of 
31 to 48, in spite of his earnest efforts in its behalf. He was elected as a

D. D. SPANGLER. 

DD. SPANGLER, the Representative of Henry County, was born in Marion 
• township, Henry County, Ohio, May 19, 1868. Till he was eighteen 
he worked exclusively on the farm, attending a few months each winter 
the district school. So determined was he to secure an education that it is 
said of him in his younger years when sent out in the fields by himself he 
would frequently be found with a book or a newspaper; but the gratification 
of his desires for a number of years seemed very far distant. However, in 
the summer of 1886 prospects became brighter. An uncle from St. Paul, Kan- 
sas, who is a professor, and spent his vacation in Ohio, became interested in 
his nephew. In August, 1886, the subject of this sketch accompanied his 
uncle to St, Paul, Kansas, where for two years he applied himself closely and 
diligently to his books. He always was a model gtudent, and in the monthly 
tests which were always rewarded by prizes he frequently carried all of them. 

The course of studies prescribed by the institution, which was conducted 
by the Jesuits, embraced four years; but circumstances at home became such 
that with only one year yet to complete the course, he had to abandon his 
beloved professors and fellow students and return to Ohio. 

Upon his return to Ohio he took the county examination, passed it suc- 
cessfully, and for four terms taught the school where he had been a pupil. 
Not being satisfied with his education, at the age of twenty-two he resumed 
his sttidies again at Pio Nono College, Milwatikee, Wisconsin, where he grad- 
uated in June, 1893, as valedictorian of his class. In the fall of 1893 he ac- 
cepted a position as principal in the schools at Decatur, Indiana, where he 
labored successfully for years. 

Returning to Ohio, he purchased a farm on which he has since resided, 
dividing his time between farming and teaching in the South Ridge special 
school district as principal and superintendent for a number of years. 

Being politically inclined, he entered the field for Representative of Henry 
County in 1899, against the Hon. T. M. Gehrett and James Anderson, and 



(505) 



came out of the convention as second man. As a man who strictly attends 
to his own business he was practically unknown in the greater part of the 
county. Making an honorable and clean campaign, and by his telling and 
timely talks before conventions he made such an impression upon the peo- 
ple that at this time he became their choice for Representative by acclama- 
tion. Neither did his constituents desert him at the election. Where he 
was best known, people, regardless of party, supported him at the election. 

He is a firm and ardent believer and supporter in the principles of Democ- 
racy, and never lets an opportunity pass in public or private to let himself 
be heard and felt, and is a staunch friend of labor. The Democratic Ex- 
ecutive Committee of Henry County invited him to take the stump, which 
he cheerfully did, and by the close of the campaign he was known as the 
silver tongued orator of Henry County. 

As a member of the 76th General Assembly he served on the important 
committees of Common Schools, Boys* Industrial School and Elections. 

After the expiration of his first term he was a candidate for a second term, 
nominated by primary without opposition and elected by an increased ma- 
jority. As a member of the 77th General Assembly he served on the com- 
mittees of Institution for the Blind, Library and Dairy and Food. He in- 
troduced the following bills: A bill relating to the qualification of members 
of county board" of school examiners, which never came from the hands of 
the committee. Anti-treating bill was defeated on the floor of the House after 
a vigorous fight of two hours. Quoting from the Ohio State Journal: "The 
discussion on this bill was concluded by Representative Spangler, who made 
an earnest, sincere and eloquent plea for its passage, but in vain." 

The Township Ditch Supervisor bill was the cause of a mirthful session. 
On March 14, 1906, this bill was up for passage after it had been defeated 
some days before. Quoting from the Cincinnati Commercial Tribune of March 
15, 1906, it says:' "At no time since the Assembly began its labors has there 
been more rollicking jollity. The cause of this hilarity was a pretentious set 
speech made by Mr. Spangler from Henry County. His efforts showed the 
results of great labor. It was fanciful; it was poesy in prose. The ancients 
gave up their orators, who loosed their tongues in favor for the drainage 
system of the northwestern part of the state, the garden spot of Ohio. A 
week ago the bill was defeated after the author had delivered the same fiow- 
ery speech with which he again amused the House today. The author secured 
the reconsideration of the bill, to which the members unanimously consented, 
as a sort of encore for his oratorical effort. 

ORATES FOR AN HOUR. 

"The wags of the House patted the new Demosthenese on the back and 
for an hour he plucked bright flowers from the bouquets of language given to 
posterity by the Greek orators. Amidst shouts and applause of approval, 
Spangler burnished the brilliance of Cicero and Demosthenese with the re- 
sult that the bill was passed almost unanimously in recompense for his 
exertion."

(532)

came from Ireland and Germany before the Revolutionary War, and settled 
in the state of New Jersey, emigrating from thence into the Northwest Ter- 
ritory, while it was yet an unbroken wilderness. 

Mr. Yost received his education in the common schools of his native county, 
attending High School at Sistersville, W. Va., and New Matamoras, Ohio; the 
National Normal University, Lebanon, Ohio, and Franklin College, New Athens, 
Ohio. He taught in the common schools of his native county from 1886 to 
1894, during which time he resided at Centerview, Ohio. Was admitted to the

wit of the House. 

In the organization of the 77th General Assembly, Mr. Yost received the 
solid support of the Democratic and independent members of the House for 
Speaker and was chosen minority leader. 

In matters of legislation Mr. Yost has shown himself to be a humanitarian 
and economist. He is also noted for his honesty and unswerving devotion 
to the reforms promised in the last Democratic state platform. As an author 
and poet he gives promise of ranking among the great thinkers of his time. 

"Each struggled wildly to obtain 

A place within the fold, 
Where mammon's rites and greed of gain 

Were wonders to behold."

GOVERNOR ANDREW L. HARRIS. 



(542) 



GOVERNOR ANDREW L. HARRIS 

AMONG the distinguished men who have held the office of chief executive 
of Ohio, Governor Harris holds a place peculiarly his own. Few have 
been closer to the people, and none have rendered more worthy service 
in the varied fields of honorable endeavor that constitute the distinctive oppor- 
tunity of the typical Ohioan. Descended from parents and grandparents who 
were pioneers of the state, and never residing far from his ancestral home, 
he is by birth and the molding influence of environment emphatically a Buck- 
eye, and his successful career is an inspiration to the youth who would rise 
from his humble estate to places of trust and power. A plain, unassuming man, 
dignified, but genial, and modest in the extreme, he craves not display or 
fulsome eulogy. He needs neither. Achievement in the line of duty is his 
fittest meed of praise. The simple story of his life is a tribute most eloquent. 

Andrew Lintner Harris was born in Butler county, Ohio, November 17, 
1835, and was reared on a farm in Dixon township, Preble County, His grand- 
father, Joseph Harris, was a native of Ireland, and in 1797 crossed the At- 
lantic to America, taking up his abode in Cincinnati. Soon after the close 
of the War of 1812 he moved to Butler County, Ohio. His son, Benjamin Har- 
ris, the father of the subject of this sketch, was born in Cincinnati, March 3, 
1803, and was married on the 3d of April, 1829, to Miss Nancy Lintner, of But- 
ler County. To them were born seven children, of whom Governor Harris 
is the only survivor. His father passed away in 1872, and his mother's 
death occurred in 1881. 

Governor Harris spent his early boyhood days on the home farm, and 
atttended the district school through the winter season. Availing himself of 
the opportunity to acquire a college education, he entered Miami University 
in 1857, and was graduated from that institution in 1860. He returned to 
the farm and soon afterward commenced the study of law. 

At the outbreak of the Civil War he suspended the study of law, and en- 
listed as a, private in Company C, 20th O. V. I., April 17, 1861, and was grad- 
ually advanced until he became captain of the company. At the close of this 
enlistment, he recruited Company C for the 75th O. V. I., and was commis- 
sioned captain in 1861, major in 1863, colonel in the same year and brevet 
brigadier-general in 1865. Within the period of his service, he participated in 
many important engagements, among which were the battles of Monterey, 
Shaw's Ridge, McDowell, Franklin, Cedar Mountain, Bull Run (second bat- 
tle), Chancellorsville and Gettysburg. In the last named battle he led a 
brigade. His command was the first to enter the town. He was severely 
wounded at McDowell and Gettysburg. 

At the close of the war. Governor Harris returned to his farm in Preble 
County, but his wounds disabled him and he completed the study of law. In 
1865 he was admitted to the bar. He continued diligently in the practice of 
the legal profession until 1875. In the autumn of 1865 he v/as elected to rep- 
resent Preble and Montgomery counties in the state senate. He was chosen 
probate judge of his county in 1875, and re-elected in 1878. Later he served 
in the House of Representatives in the 67th and 68th General Assemblies. 

In 1891, a strong candidate was sought to make the race for lieutenant gov- 
ernor with William McKinley. In the previous gubernatorial election the Re- 
publican party had suffered defeat, and it was the desire to present a ticket 
that should appeal strongly to the voters of Ohio. The ticket was triumphantly 
elected in November of that year and re-elected by increased majorities in 
1893. In 1894 Governor Harris was a candidate for Congress, and reduced 
the normal Democratic majority of his district from 4,000 to 202. 

Governor Harris has given much attention to the study of labor condi- 
tions and agricultural interests. This fact was recognized by President Mc- 
Kinley who, in September, 1898, appointed him one of the members of the 
National Industrial Commission, with headquarters in Washington, D. C. He 
was honored with the position of chairman of the sub-commission on agricul- 
ture and agricultural labor. The results of his work are found on the pages 
of the nineteen volumes that constitute the report of the commission. This 
voluminous report is a standard reference work on the industrial conditions 
in the United States. 

In 1905, Governor Harris was nominated for a third time for lieutenant 
governor, and although in the election following the head of the Republican 
ticket was defeated by a plurality of 42,647, Governor Harris had 29,179 more 

(543) 



votes than his Democratic opponent. He discharged the duties of his office 
with the skill of a master parliamentarian. His experience through previous 
general assemblies had made him thoroughly familiar with the rules of leg- 
islative procedure, and as president of the Senate he has had few equals in 
his native state. On the death of Governor Pattison, June 18, 1906, Governor 
Harris took up the duties of chief executive of Ohio. 

Mingled with the deep regret at the demise of Governor Pattison were 
expressions of confidence in the ability and the integrity of his successor. To 
the discharge of his new duties, made somewhat delicate and difficult by 
the sad circumstances under which they were assumed, Governor Harris brought 
his good judgment and ripe experience. The success of his administration 
has raised him in the esteem of the people of the state, and has called forth 
expressions of approval from the press, regardless of party. 

Governor Harris was united in marriage to Miss Caroline Conger, Oc- 
tober 17, 1865. They have one son, Walter C, who was graduated from Miami 
University and Ohio State University, and is now an artist and photographer 
on the New York World. 

Governor Harris retains his interest in military affairs through his con- 
nection with the Grand Army of the Republic and the Loyal Legion. No man 
more thoroughly enjoys association with his comrades. 

In politics he has always been a Republican. He cast his first vote for 
Abraham Lincoln. 

Farmer boy, college student, soldier, lawyer, legislator, parliamentarian, 
statesman — Ohio is fortunate in her popular and patriotic governor, Andrew 
L. Harris.

THE BIOGRAPHICAL ANNALS OF 'OHIO. 545 



The Governor. 



THE OFFICE OF THE GOVERNOR. 

The Constitution of Ohio provides that "The supreme executive 
power of the state shall be vested in the Governor." 

He is elected by the people for a term of two years. He must be 
an elector and not hold any other office under the authority of the State 
or the United States. In case of death, removal or other disability, the 
Lieutenant-Governor shall execute the office of Governor. The Governor 
must see that the laws are faithfully executed and .may request of the 
executive officials reports of their respective departments. 

At every session of the General Assembly he must report the con- 
dition of the state by message, recommending therein such legislation as 
may to him seem proper. He may convene the General Assembly upon 
extraordinary occasions. He may adjourn it in case of disagreement 
upon this subject between the two branches thereof. 

The Governor is Commander-in-Chief of the army and navy and 
custodian of the Great Seal of the State. 

He may grant reprieves, commutations and pardons. 
Must approve or disapprove all bills of the General Assembly. 
Such, briefly, are the constitutional provisions relating to the Chief 
Executive. 

In addition to the powers conferred and duties imposed upon the 
Governor by the Constitution, are those which the General Assembly has 
seen fit to provide by statute, and it is through these that the greater por- 
tion of the actual duties of this office arise, as well as most of the ap- 
pointive power of the Governor. As Commander-in-Chief of the army 
and navy, it seems appropriate that he should appoint the Adjutant-Gen- 
eral, and the twelve other members of his military staff. 

There are certain state offices not created by the Constitution whose 
chief incumbents are nominated by the Governor, and by and with the ad- 
vice and consent of the Senate appointed. Such are the Commissioner of 
Insurance, Railroad Commission, Labor Statistics, Inspector of Work- 
shops and Factories, Chief Mine Inspector, State Fire Marshal, Chief 
Examiner of Stationary Engineers, State Pension Claim Agent, and 
Chief Engineer of Public Works. 

Numerous commissions, such as the Canal Commission, Shiloh Bat- 
tlefield Commission, and Fish and Game Commission, containing from 
two to seven members each, with terms varying from one to five years, 
have been created by law. Here vacancies are constantly occurring, 
which) are filled by the Governor, and frequently he is called upon, when 
the General Assembly provides for some new commission, to appoint an 
entire board. 

35-B. A. 



546 THE BIOGRAPHICAL ANNALS OF OHIO. 

The Governor. 

The Governor is ex-officio the President of the State Board of Chari- 
ties, composed of six members, who are appointed for a term of three 
years. This Board exercises a general supervision of the public institu- 
tions, and is of valuable aid to the Governor in overseeing the numerous 
large state properties. There are thirteen benevolent, two penal and two 
corrective institutions in this state. Each of these is managed by a board 
of trustees composed of six members appointed by the Governor, by and 
with the advice and consent of the senate, for a term of five years. 

Recurring to the duties of this office, we find the Governor, of neces- 
sity, a busy man. The actual duties of the office occupy much of his 
time, while the constant and pressing demands made by the general public 
leave him few spare moments. 

He must examine and approve or veto all bills passed by the General 
Assembly,- issue requisition papers, investigate applications for pardons, 
commutations and reprieves, certify under the Great Seal of the State as 
to the official character of numerous state and county officials ; upon appli- 
cation commission notaries public and commissioners of deeds, and, with 
few exceptions, commission all elective officers, both civil and military. 
He must attend board meetings, counsel heads of departments, maintain 
a general supervision of all great state institutions, examine, approve and 
sign numerous state papers, hear and dispose of complaints against in- 
dividuals and institutions, and keep a constant watch over the affairs of 
state. All of this entails the keeping of numerous records, the assorting 
and filing of many papers and constant attention to a large corre- 
spondence. To aid him in his work the Governor has a Private Secre- 
tary, three clerks and a messenger.

GOVERNOR JOHN M. PATTISON. 



(550) 



GOVERNOR JOHN N. PATTISON. 

JOHN M. PATTISON was born near Boston, Clermont County, Ohio, June 
13, 1847, being the son of a tenant farmer. The father was a just and 

upright man who loved the truth and hated iniquity. It was from this 
source of righteousness and from a Christian mother that Governor Pattison 
drew the character that distinguished him throughout the career that ended 
all too soon for his native state. Leaving the farm with his father as a youth, 
he went into business with him, owning and managing a country siore. When 
he reached his sixteenth year he enlisted, a pure and delicate figure, in the 
Federal army, and faithfully discharged the dangerous duty of a soldier. The 
war ended, he returned to Ohio and began the finishing of the education 
founded earlier in the little country school. Earning his own funds by teach- 
ing, and working as a field hand in harvest time, he was able to pay for a 
collegiate cpurse at Ohio Wesleyan University at Delaware. He graduated in 
the class of 1869, and directly thereafter he went into the Middle West, re- 
maining three years. While engaged in other business he studied law with 
such success that he was admitted to practice at Cincinnati in 1872. The 
following year witnessed his election as a member of the House of Repre- 
sentatives from Hamilton County, his vote being the greatest of all the can- 
didates. It was while a member of this body that he displayed the militant 
opposition to organized corruption in public office and a manly impatience with 
the lax administration of law. There was a condition in Cincinnat that called 
for the combined protest of the good men of all parties. A committee of twen- 
ty-five was named to fight the men who were responsible and drive them from 
office. It fell to Governor Pattison's lot to be chosen as the attorney for this 
committee. How well he performed his duty and how fearlessly, is a matter 
of history. After ten years of practice, which were marked by honesty to his 
clients, the young lawyer was invited to become one of the directors of the 
Union Central Life Insurance Company, of which he was elected vice-president 
and general manager. Henceforth the development and upbuilding of tfiis in- 
stitution became his life work. Notwithstanding this he never failed to re- 
spond to the call of duty as a citizen. In 1890 the death of Thomas Q. Ashburn 
left a vacancy in the Clermont-Brown senatorial district. Much depended upon 
the political complexion of his successor, as the loss of the seat to the Dem- 
ocrats meant also loss of control in the Senate, before which many important 
party matters were pending. Called upon to .lead the fight, Governor Pat- 
tison responded, and won a great victory. As a member of that body he 
gained fame for his eloquent struggle against the repeal of the Sunday laws, 
standing apart from his colleagues with inflexible determination. His de- 
mand that the people of Ohio, and not the office holders, be given the author- 
ity to decide this great question, finally resulted in the defeat of the bill. His 
reward, though unsought, came quickly, for he was nominated for Congress 
in the Sixth District in 1891, and was elected by a striking majority. As a 
congressman he offered the first bill appropriating funds to estal^ish rural 
free mail delivery. He also made a vigorous fight against permitting the 
World's Fair at Chicago to remain open on Sunday, and his efforts were again 
as successful as they were in 1890. Leaving Congress he again returned to 
the task of conducting the affairs of the insurance company of which he later 
. became president, and he had the satisfaction of witnessing its promotion to 
the front rank of the great concerns of its kind. Conditions in 1905 once more 
called him, like Cincinnatus, from the plow. Nominated for Governor over a 
field of splendid candidates by what was best in the state convention, he was 
chosen to lead a historic: movement in the commonwealth's affairs. After one 
of the most notable campaigns in Ohio, he converted a Republican majority 
of 256,000 of the year before into a plurality of 43,000 for himself, for he was 
the only Democrat elected on the state ticket. It was a signal tribute to his 
, high personal character, and his stand for moral principles as against mere 
partyism. Fate decreed that he should not live long to enjoy the fruits of 
his remarkable triumph. His health gave way after the campaign, and he had 
barely strength enough to withstand the ordeal of inauguration. Returning 
from the capitol that night he never returned again to the executive office. 
Lingering until the following June, he passed away at his country home, "Prow- 
mont," near Milford. 

From his deathbed he directed the affairs of government until his weak 
body refused longer to respond to his indomitable will. His only message 
to the General Assembly, written within the shadow of the valley of death, 
of itself is an epitome of his life history. It is an appeal for all that should 
make men and governments better, and the world a finer place in which to live.

The duties of the Secretary to the Governor are of a personal

annum is but a partial compensation. Prior to 1904 the title of this office 
was "Private Secretary to the Governor," The follov^ing list of private 
secretaries is apparently incomplete, as no sufficient record exists prior to

556 THE BIOGRAPHICAL ANNALS OF OHIO. 

The Secretary of State. 

The Department of State is one of the most important divisions of 
the executive branch of the state government. 

Under the Constitution of 1802, the Secretary oif State was appointed 
by the General Assembly, and the duties of the. office consisted mainly, to 
use. the words of the old Constitution, in keeping a ''register of all official 
acts and proceedings of the Governor." 

The office, however, under the Constitution of 185 1, was made elec- 
tive, and elevated to the dignity of a department; and by virtue of that 
Constitution, and subsequent legislation thereunder, some of the most 
important executive and administrative functions of the state government 
are devolved upon this office. 

The Secretary of State is made by law the custodian of the acts of 
the General Assembly, and under his supervision the same are printed 
and published, and by him all exemplifications of the same are required 
to be authenticated, and all commissions issued by the Governor to be 
countersigned. 

In this office also, under general statutes, all incorporations are re- 
quired to be created. Recent legislation, requiring domestic and foreign 
corporations to file annual reports and imposing a franchise tax based 
upon capital stock, which the Secretary of State is required to collect and 
pay into the state treasury, makes this department one oif great conse- 
quence and importance to the state. 

The Secretary of State, by virtue of his office, is a member and the 
Secretary of the State Sinking Fund Commissioners, President of the 
Board of Printing Commissioners, member of the Decennial Board of 
Apportionment for legislative purposes, member of the State Board of 
Appraisers and Assessors, and of the State Building Commission. 

He is also, by virtue of his office, made State Supervisor of Elections, 
and State Supervisor and Inspector of Elections, and as such has the 
power of appointment and removal of the members of the boards of 
Deputy State Supervisors of Elections in the various counties ; is required 
to collate and publish the election laws of the state ; to determine the ar- 
rangement of the ballot, and prepare and furnish forms and instructions 
to the various county boards of elections ; to receive and file certificates 
of nominations, or nomination papers for presidential electors and state 
officers; to hear and determine objections or other questions as to the 
validity of such papers; to decide upon the validity of all nomination 
papers of a county, district, sub-division of the district or circuit, when 
the county, district or circuit board, authorized to pass upon these papers, 
fails to decide; and a decision of the Secretary of State upon these 
questions is final.

WALTER D. GUILBERT. 



WALTER D. GUILBERT was born in Guernsey County, Ohio, of French- 
Irish ancestors, and was reared on a farm. His great-grandfather on 
the maternal side settled in Maryland about 1750 and played an active 
part in the Revolutionary War. He was wounded several times, and at the 
battle of Brandywine only escaped capture by the thoughtfulness of his com- 
rades, who carried the wounded man to a swamp and securely hid him until 
the British had withdrawn. The father of Mr. Guilbert came to this country 
from France when a youth and settled in Guernsey County. 

The subject of this sketch was educated in the public schools and at We> 
nona Academy, Illinois. He was twice elected auditor of Noble County, Ohia, 
and proved himself a most capable official. In 1888 he became chief clerk 
in the Auditor of State's office, continuing in that position until 1896, when 
he succeeded to the important office of Auditor of State, having been nom- 
inated by the Republican party and elected in the fall of 1895. In his career 
as a public officer, Mr. Guilbert is a genial, patient and painstaking official, 
combining with these virtues an earnest intention to perform his duties in 
such a manner as to insure the best results for the people of Ohio. It is no 
flattery to say that his manner of transacting the business of his depart- 
ment has made him one of the most popular men who ever occupied a posi- 
tion in the state capitol. He was renominated unanimously in 1899 and elected 
by an increased plurality for a second term. In 1903 Mr. Guilbert was unani- 
mously chosen by his party, and was elected by an increased majority for a 
third term, on which he entered in January, 1904. Mr. Guilbert has been active 
in the affairs of his party, having served as chairman of his county committee 
for a number of years, and as a member of the State Executive Committee. He 
was a delegate to the national Republican convention in 1888 and also in 1904. 
Mr. Guilbert was married February 5, 18G8, to Miss Mary L. .Jordan, of 
Noble county. They have a family of three children, two sons and one daugh- 
ter. He is connected with a number of secret and social organizations, being 
a Mason, a Knight Templar, a 32d degree Mason, a member of the Mystic 
Shrine, of the L O. O. F., of the K. of P., and I. O. R. M.

The Auditor of State. 



DUTIES OF THE AUDITOR. 

The Auditor of State is elected every four years, ai^d is the chief 
accounting officer of the state. No money can be paid into or out of 
the State Treasury except upon his warrant. He is) custodian of all field 
notes, maps, records, documents, papers and implerhents oif every de- 
scription relating to or used in the survey of the public lands within the 
state, and is required by law toi keep a record of deeds executed by the 
Governor. He is required to prepare all forms and instructions for 
county officers, and county officials are required, by law, to use such 
blanks and obey such instructions. He is required to audit all requi- 
sitions, vouchers and claims against the state, and pass upon the validity 
and correctness of the same before issuing his warrant on the State 
Treasury for payment. He is required to direct suit to be brought against 
delinquent revenue officials, and look after and see to the collection of all 
claims in favor of the state. He may remit illegal taxes or penalties and 
direct that tax duplicates be corrected. 

The work in the office has been greatly increased since the present 
auditor went into office as chief clerk in 1888 by reason of the determina- 
tion to add to the revenues of the state by traffic and excise taxes, which 
should meet the growing needs of the state government, and forever pre- 
vent an increase in the common burden of taxation upon private individ- 
uals and small property holders. The work of putting various revenue 
acts in operation fell upon this department as follows : 

In 1889 the liquor traffic tax act giving the state a portion of the tax was 
passed and put in operation. In 1896 this act was amended, increasing the tax, 
which now yields as the state's portion over one million dollars annually. 

In 1893 what is known as the Nichols law, taxing express, telegraph and 
telephone companies, was passed and put in operation, which yields to the 
state and counties annually more than $30,000.00, 

In 1894 an act levying an excise tax on gross receipts of express com- 
panies, was passed, and put in, operation, which brings into the state treasury 
about $12,000 annually. In 1902 this law was repealed and express companies 
included in the excise law of 1902. 

In 1894 an act taxing sleeping car companies was passed and put in opera- 
tion, which brings into the state treasury $5,500 annually. 

In 1896 a law was passed taxing freight line companies, which brings into 
the state $8,000 annually. 

In 1896 an act levying an excise tax on the gross receipts of all public 
corporations '(electric light, gas, natural gas, pipe line, water works, street 
railroads, railroads and messenger or signal companies). In 1902 this law was 
amended so as to include si^burban or interurban railroad, telegraph, telephone, 
express and union depot companies, and the tax increased to one per cent, on 
the gross receipts, which yielded last year for state purposes the sum of $1,- 
432,000. In 1904 this law was amended to include water transportation com- 
panies and heating or cooling companies. 

In 1902 an act was passed creating a Bureau of Inspection and Super- 
vision of Public Offices, of which the Auditor of State is chief inspector and 
supervisor. 

In 1904 an act was passed, known as the "Direct Inheritance Tax Law,'^ 
providing for a tax of two per cent, on legacies in excess of three thousand dol- 
lars. It is made the duty of the Auditor of State to collect this tax.

COMPTROLLERS OF THE TREASURY. 



THE office of Comptroller of the Treasury was established in 1859, 
as an intermediate check between the Anditor of State and the 
State Treasury. Warrants issued by the Auditor were not pay- 
able at the Treasury until countersigned by the Comptroller or his proper 
representative, whose books were practically duplicates of the books kept 
in the office of the Auditor and Treasurer. The office was abolished in 
1877, General Wilson being then in charge. The following list gives 
the names and terms oif service of the several incumbents : 

W. B. Thrall, 1859-1862; Joseph H. Riley, 1862-1865; Moses R. 
Brailey, 1865-1871 ; William T. Wilson, 1871-1877. 

Office abolished in 1877.

WADE H. ELLIS. 



(568) 



WADE H. ELLIS was born in Covington, Kentucky, both his paternal and 
maternal ancestors coming from Virginia; his father's grandfather, 
William Ellis, from Fauquier County, and his mother's father, Chris- 
topher Blackburn, from Caroline County. Christopher Blackburn's maternal 
grandfather was Captain James McPike, who served under Col. Howard and 
Gen. Little and later under the command of Gen, Lafayette in the Revolutionary 
war. 

Mr. Ellis attended the public schools of Covington, Hughes High School 
and Chickering Institute in Cincinnati, and later graduated from Washington 
and Lee University at Lexington, Va. Here he studied law, receiving the de- 
bater's medal, the law scholarship and the honors of his class. He began the 
practice of law in Cincinnati, but in 1894 discontinued for a time his professional 
work to become the managing editor of the Cincinnati Tribune, an independent 
Republican newspaper. In 1896 the Tribune being consolidated with the Com- 
mercial Tribune, Mr. Ellis was made managing editor of the new paper, and 
continued in that capacity throughout the memorable campaign of 1896, and 
until July, 1897, when he resigned to return to the practice of law, having 
been appointed First Assistant Corporation Counsel of the city of Cincinnati. 
In this latter capacity he served nearly six years, with two administrations, re- 
signing January 1, 1903, to resume private practice. 

When Governor Nash called the extraordinary session of the 75th General 
Assembly in the summer of 1902, to pass a uniform municipal code, made 
necessary by the sweeping decisions of the Supreme Court of Ohio against 
special legislation, he invited Mr. Ellis to draft the law, which was presented 
to~the legislature and subsequently passed October 22, 1902. Later, Mr. Ellis 
published the "Annotated Edition of the Ohio Municipal Code." On June 17, 
1903, he was unanimously nominated by the Republican state convention for 
Attorney General, and elected in November of that year by the overwhelming 
majority which the whole ticket received. 

When the tax commission was appointed by Governor Harris in Septem- 
ber, 1906, for the purpose of securing an investigation of the tax laws of Ohio 
and recommendations for amendments, constitutional or otherwise, Mr. Ellis 
was made a member of the commission, and upon its organization was elected 
chairman. 

In 1894 Mr. Ellis was married to Miss Dessie Corwin Chase, daughter of 
Mr. and Mrs. Francis M. Chase, of Cincinnati.

THE OFFICE OF THE ATTORNEY GENERAL. 



THE 76th General Assembly passed an act making many and im- 
portant changes in the organization, powers and duties of the 
Attorney General's Department, greatly increasing its usefulness 
and influence. The Attorney General, by this act, is now made the chief 
law officer of the state and no state officer or the head of any department 
is authorized to employ any other counsel. The Attorney General is em- 
powered to appoint a First Assistant, who may act in his place during his 
absence, a Second Assistant, a Chief Clerk, (in addition to the stenog- 
rapher, and messenger in the office) and such special counsel in State 
cases as he may deem necessary for the conduct of the legal business of 
the State. 

The work of the Attorney General's office has greatly increased since 
the first Attorney General, Henry Stanbery, was chosen in 1846, until it is 
now one of the busiest and most important departments of the State. Be- 
sides representing the State in all cases before the Supreme Court, where 
the docket shows a rapidly increasing number of such cases, as well as 
before the Circuit and Common Pleas Courts throughout the State, the 
Attorney General is the legal adviser of all the State officers, depart- 
ments and institutions. In addition to this he is a member of numerous 
state boards established at various times by the General Assembly which 
require continuous attention. Among these boards are the following: i, 
State Board of Appraisers and Assessors for Express, Telegraph and 
Telephone Companies ; 2, State Board of Appraisers for Sleeping Car 
Companies; 3, State Board of Appraisers for Freight Line Companies; 

4, State Board of Appraisers and Assessors for Electric Light, Gas, etc. ; 

5, State Board of Appraisers and Assessors for Appointing Boards of 
Review; 6, Board of Equalization for Railroads; 7, Annual State Board 
of Equalization for Banks; 8, State Board of Tax Remission; 9, Sinking 
Fund; 10, Emergency Board; 11, Printing Commission; 12, Paper Com- 
mission; 13, Fee Commission; 14, Board of University Lands; 15, Board 
to Appoint Agents to Prosecute Claims vs. U. S. Government; 16, Board 
of Appeals under the Willis Law.

THE STATE BOARD OF PUBLIC WORKS. 



THE State of Ohio, in 1827, opened for public use a system of canals 
which connected the waters of Lake Erie on the north, with those 
of the Ohio River on the south, by two inland waterways which 
traversed the State in its eastern and western divisions. The eastern sys- 
tem was generally known as the ''Ohio" canal, and extended from the 
Cuyahoga River at Cleveland to the Ohio River at Portsmouth, tapping 
in its route directly or by branches, the valleys of the Cuyahoga, Tuscara- 
was, Muskingum, Licking, Jlocking, and Scioto Rivers, and forming 
waterways between the cities of central- and eastern Ohio. This canal 
system necessitated the building of 308 miles of public works, over a route 
which varied in height above the lake level from 395 feet at Akron locks, 
only 35 miles from Cleveland, to 317 feet at Licking Summit, and falling 
96 feet below the level of the lake as the canal enters Portsmouth, 308 
miles to the south. 

The western system known as the "Miami and Erie" canal, is 245 
miles long, extending from Toledo to Cincinnati, and piercing the western 
tier of counties. 

The act to provide for navigable canals was passed by the Twenty- 
third General Assembly, February 4, 1825. Work was begun in the same 
year, and was continued until the reservoirs were completed in 1842.. 
The following figures are of interest.

IN THE STATE OF OHIO. 

1st. Date of grant, March 2, 1827. Object — To aid in opening 
canal to unite at navigable points the Wabash River with Lake Erie (so
