PREFACE. 



THE "BiograpJiical Annals of Ohio" is tlie outcome of efforts to 
preserve in ready reference form tlie 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 Asisemhly purchased end 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 for gratuitous distribution an 
edition of 9,500 copies. 

In 1900-1901 another revision, prepared under direction of the 
General Assembly by Mr. E. H. Gilkey was published under the name 
of the Hundred Year Book. 

The Act of May 12, 1902, contemplates the publication of a work 
of this character biennially under the name of "The 
Biographical Annals of Ohio." In order that the series may be com- 
plete the matter heretofore published is reprinted in this volume cover- 
ing the biographical history of Ohio from the formation of the I^orth- 
west Territory in 1787 to July 1, 1902. It is not presumed that this 
matter will be reprinted. 

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 DECLARATIOiN OF THE INDEPENDENCE OF THE 
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. 

In- Confederate Congress^ July 4th ^ 177 G. 

THE UNANIMOUS DECLARATION OF THE THIRTEEN STATES OF AMERICA. 



WHEN in tihe course of Inimiaii ovents it becomes necessary for oaie 
peofple to dissolve tlie political bands wliiicli have coimected 
them w*ith another, and to assume among the Powers of the 
earth, the separate and. equal station to which the Laws of Na1;ure anid of 
Nature^s God entitle them, a dlecent respect to the opinions of mankind re- 
quires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the sepa- 
ration . 

We hold these truths to be self evident, that all men are created equal, 
that thej 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 G-ovemments are instituted among men, deriving 
their just powers from the consen't of the governed. That whenever any 
Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is theKightof 
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 mjo^st 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 sufferiable, than to right themiselves by aJbolishing 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 pi^ovide 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 lalbsolute tyranny over these States. To prove this, let 
Facts be submitted to a candid world . 

He has refused his Asseoit to liaws, the most wholesome and necessary 
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

diistricts ocf people, unless those people would relinquisili the right of Rep- 
resentation in the Legislature, a right inestimaible to them land' fortmidable 
to tyrants only . 

He has called together legislative b'oidies at places unusual, uncom- 
fortaible, land 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 witlh 
manly firaiiness his linvasions 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, anid convulsions within. 

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

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 and payme-nt 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 le-gislature . 

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

He has combined with others tio subject us to a jurisdiotioai 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 protecting them by a moick trial, from punishment for any 
Murders 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 preten.ded offenses : 

For abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighboring 
Province, establishing therein am 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. ^^ 

The Declaration of Independence. 

For suspending our own Legisla'tures, and declqj'ing themselves in- 
vested with Power to legislate for us in all eases wihatsoever. 

He has ahdioated Government here, hy declaring us out of his pro- 
tection anid waging war againsft us. 

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

He is at this time transportiaiig large armies of mercenaries to com- 
plete the woirks 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- 
oured to bring on the inhabitiajn'ts of our frontiers, the mei-eiless Imidian 
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, lis 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 usurpiations , 
which would inevitably interrupt our connectionis 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 Separa- 
tion, 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 the Supreme Judge of the 
world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by 
Authority of the Good people of these Colondes, 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- 
elud'e Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other 
Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. And for

Note. — ^Prior to the Denlaralior of Independence, and on the 12th day of 
the preceding month, a connnibtee was appointed by the Continental Congress, "to 
prepare and digest 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 niember^ of the congress for their secret examination. 
For two years T>he articles were under discussion by the members of the several 
state legislatures to whom copies were sent by the new government, and on the 
9th of July, 1778, the representatives in congress of the States of New Hampshire, 
Massachusetts Bay, Ilhode 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 all convenient dispatch. North Carolina ratified the Act on the 
21st of July, and Georgia on the ^AWx of the same month, thus giving the assent of 
ten states to the instrument. The remaining ratiflcations were given; by New Jer- 
sey, November 2G, 1778; by Delaware, May 5, 1779; and by Maryland, March 1, 
1781. 

Congress assembled under the Act of Confederation, March 2, 1781, the day

Who was the Author of the Obdinance of 1787"? — "There has been some 
diversity of opinion as to the individual to whom the honor of the paternity of that 
document rightfully belongs. Soine have claimed it for Mr. Jefferson, though he 
did not claim it himself. The honor of drafting that instrument, on which the con- 
stitutions of all the northwestern states are founded, belongs of right to Nathan 
Dane, a revolutionary patriot of Massachusetts. He was its author, — he reported it 
to Congress and persevered in explaining, and impressing it on their attention till 
they became satisfied of its merits and adopted it by a unanimous vote, Mr. Jeffer- 
son being in France at the tinae." — Burnett's Notes on the North-Western Territory,

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, 1863, 
major Iwcnly-third Ohio Volunteers, of which W. S. Rosecrans was the first colonel and 
Stanley Matthews (afterwards justice U. S. Supreme Court) lieutenant-colonel. He was 
promoted i.ieuteuant-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. A^ter the battle 
of Aatietam 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 the 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 1S6D. In 1872 he suffered his first defeat for Congress. In 1875 he reluctantly 
txinsented to allow his name to be used once more as a candidate for governor, and was 
olected for a third time, an honor never before conferred on a citizen of Ohio. On June 
IG, 1876, he was nominated at Cincinnati for president of the United States, on the Re- 
publican ticket, GO the seventh ballot, receiving 384 votes, to 351 for J. G. Blaine, and 21 
for B. H. I'ristow. The ensuing canvass, which was bitter and exciting, was closed by 
a disputed election, the electoral votes of Florida, South Carolina, and Louisiana, and 
ons of those of Oregon being claimed by both parties. The Presidential Electoral Com- 
mission nunounced, 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 afiairs of the government were conducted in a manner that will command 
the favorab'e judgment of history. Died at Fremont, Ohio, January 17, 1893.

BILL OF RIGHTS. 

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



THE BIOGRAPHICAL ANNALS OF OHIO. 



The First Constitution of Ohio. 



Section 1. 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, acquiringj 
possessing, and protecting property, and pursuing and obtained hap- 
piness and safety ; and every free republican government being founded 
on their sole authority, and organized for the great purpose of protect- 
ing their rights and liberties, and securing their independence — to 
effect these ends, they have at all times a complete power to alter, re- 
form or abolish their government w^henever they may deem it necessary. 

Sec. 2. There shall be neither slavery nor involuntary servi- 
tude in this State, otherwise than for the punishment of crimes, where-

age of eighteen years, be held to serve any person as a servant under 
the pretense of indenture or otherwise, unless such person shall enter 
into such indenture while in a state of perfect freedom, and on con- 
dition of a bona fide consideration received, or to be received for their 
service, except as before excepted. !N"or shall any indenture of any 
negro or mulatto hereafter made and executed out of the Staite, or, if

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 human authority can, in any case whatever, control or interfere 
with the rights of conscience; that no man shall be compelled to at- 
tend, erect, or support any place of worship, or to maintain any min- 
istry 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 office of trust or profit. 
But religion, morality, and knowledge being essentially necessary to 
good government and the happiness 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 par- 
ti enl a rly described, and without oath or affirmation, are dangerous to 
liberty, and shall not be granted.

Sec. 6. rrhat the printing presses sinall be open and free to every 
citizen who wishes to examine the proceedings of any branch of gov- 
ernment, 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

tion respecting the official conduct of men in a public capacity, or

remedy by the due course of law, and right and justice administered

Sec. 8. That the right of trial by jury shall be inviolate. 

Sec. 9. That no power of suspending laws shall be exercised un-

meet the witnesses face to face; to have compulsory process for ob- 
taining 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 presump-

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

der and treason. When the same undisguised severity is exerted 
against all offenses, the people are led to forget the real distinction in

the crimes themselves, and to commit the most flagrant with a® little

true design of all punishments being to reform, not to exterminate, 
mankind. 

Sec. 15. The person of a debtor, where there is not strong pre- 
sumption of fraud, shall not be continued in prison after delivering up

ings 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 
E/epresentatives, 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 de- 
fence of themselves and the State; and as standing armies in time of 
peace are dangerous to liberty, they shall not be kept up ; and that the

NOTES OlSr THE COISrSTITUTIOE'AL COIsrVElSrTIO]^ OE 1802. 



THE Ooinstitutiomal Convention of 1802 forms a connecting-link 
between ithe 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 Gov- 
ernor St. Clair in January, 1802, to meet in Cincinnati, November 
29. The Congress, by an act of April 30, 1802, provided for the elec- 
tion of members of a convention which should: 

Eirst. Decide on the desirability of forming a state govern- 
ment, and 

Second.| Erame the constitution for the state should the conven- 
tion decide the first question affirmatively. 

This convention met in Chillicothe on Monday, November 1, 
four weeks prior to the time set for the convening of the Second Ter- 
ritorial Legislature in its second session, and on the day appointed for 
the legislature to meet, promulgated the Eirst 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:

Edward Tiffin was chosen president of the Convention. 

William Goforth was elected president pro tempore. 

Thomas Scott was elected secretary at $3 per day.^ 

William McEarland 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 whether 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 1. 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 agamHt the manner of its accomplishment, yet the resolution was 
carried. * * * Judge Cutler, an indomitable Whig, of Washington County, voting in 
the negative, solitary and alone. ( Burnett's Notes on the Northwest Territory, p. 
862-3.) 

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 
convention, manifested no disposition to interfere with the progread 
of the Territory toward statehood. (See Burnett quoted.) 

ITathaniel Willis was elected printer to the Convention, on the 
terms of his proposition to print 700 copies of the Journal of Conven- 
tion, and 1,000 copies of the constituition 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 27 
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 fonnally 
signing the instrument in their representative capacity.

Notes on the Constitutional Convention of 1802. 

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

A proposition to insert a proviso in Section 19 of Article 1, 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 
mulattoes, was defeated by a vote of 12 to 21. 

A proposition to strike out that part of the same section which 
forbids slavery or involuntary servitude in this state, was defeated 
overwhelmingly, by a vote of yeas 2, nays 31. 

Messrs. Paul and Iteily, of Hamilton County, voted in favor of the 
proposition. (See Journal, p. 26; iN'ovember 20, 1802.) 

A proposition to amend the third section of the bill of rights by 
striking out (the words "no religious 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 hold office 
in the civil government, was lost^ — ^yeas 3, nays 30. 

In considering Article 4, on the twenty-second of E'ovember, 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 right of suffrage, if they shall 
within twelve months make a record of their citizenship." 

As this is oneof the earliest records of an attempt to give the 
right of suffrage to the negro in America, the vote on that proposition 
is interesiting. Those who voted aye were : Abbot, Byrd, Cutler, Darlin- 
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. 
Caldwell, Carpenter, Donaldson, Humphrey, Huntington, Kirker, Mc- 
Intire, Massie, Milligan, Woods and Worthington- — 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. 

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

"Section 7. l^o negro or mulatto shall ever be eligible to any 
office, civil, or military, or give their oath in any court of justice againsc 
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 mnlattoes, 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, nays 16 — as follows: 

Yeas^ — Abrams, Baldwin, Bair, Byrd, Caldwell, Carpenter, Dar- 
linton, Donaldson, 'Grnbb, Hnniphrey, Kirker, Massie, Mclntire, Mil- 
ligan, Morrow, Smith, Tiffin, Woods and Worthington — 19. 

N'ays — Abbot, Browne Cutler, Gatch, Gilman, Goforth, Hunt- 
ington, Kitchel, Paul, Putnam, Reily, Sargent, Updegraff, Wells and 
Wilson — 15. 

On Friday, J^ovember 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 megroes 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 State) 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. 
Darlinton, Grubb and Smith, who had previously voted to add this pro- 
vision to the constitution. On the other hand, Mr. Browne, who had 
voted against the proposition in the first instance now voted to reitain 
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 presen^ted. 

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 qualifica- 
tions, which was defeated by a vote of 13 to 21. 

A provision in Article VII, Section 3, ithat ^^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 defeajted, 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 propo- 
sition before), and Milligan (who had voted to incorporate it in the 
article), voted with the friends of the negro, and caused the amend- 
ment to be made. President Tiffin, 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 outgeneralled, 
and defeated. (P. 36.) 

Bj 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 PRESn)ENT AIVD BoTH HoUSES OF CONGEESS: 

The Convention of the State of Ohio, November 27, 1802, duly appreciating the 
importance of a free and independent state government and impressed with senti- 
ments of gratitude to the Congress of the United States, for the prompt and de- 
cisive measures taken at their last session, to enable the people of the northwestern 
territory, to immerge from their colonial government, and to assume a rank among 
the sister states, beg leave to take the earliest opportunity of announcing 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 
burthens, cultivating peace with all nations, and promoting the happiness and pros- 
perity of our country.

iNTEODUCTOEY. 



A EEFEEENCE to the Ordimnoe of 1787, which is repirodaoed in 
/_\ Pairt One cf this volume, will disioover to the reader that the leg- 
-*- -^ islative f unciton of the territorial government in its first stage of 
development, and until there should be five thiouisand free m'ale inhab- 
itants of full age in the dis?trict, was lodged in the Giovernor of the 
Territory and the judges of the of the General (or Territorial) Court,, or, 
an}'- two of the Judges and the G-ovemor. 

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 
assemhly therein, unless disapproved of by Congress; but afterward the 
legislature shall have authority to alter them as they shall think fit." 



(123) 



THE FIRST LEGISLATIYE 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 boidj in October. They were: Governor, 
Major General Arthur St. Clair, elected October 5 (Pennsylvania) ; Sec- 
j-etary, Major Winthrop Sargent, elected October 5 ; Judges, General 
Samuel Holden Parsons, elected OctobeT 17 (Connecticut) ; General James 
Mitchell Varnum, elected October 17 (Rhode Island) ; Colonel John Arm- 
.-trong, 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- 
gross 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 constitut(jd 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 
iegislation 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 recoidod no infraction of these' reg- 
ulations 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, arrisrcd 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 which the 
commissions of the (Tovernor, Secretary and the Judges were publicly 
read, and the Goverrior addressed the people briefly. 

The territorial government thus set up consisted of the following 
otncers who were present and participated in the ceremony: 'Governor, 
Arthur St, C1;iii": Secretary, Winthrop Sargent; Judges, Parsons and 
Vnrnum.

The First Legislative Council of the Northwest Territory (1788). 



This group of officers ooimprised the First Legislati/ve Council of the 
Northwest Territory, and during the summer and fall of the year pub- 
ji&hed at Marietta laws on the following subjects: 

(1788), July 25 — Regulating and establishing the Militia. 

(1788), August 23— Eistablishing General Courts of Quarter Ses- 
sions, Common Pleas, and foT the appointment of Sheriffs. 

(1788), August 30— Establishing a Court of Probate. 

(1788), August 30U-Pixing the terms of the General Court. 

(1788), September 2 — Prescribing the forms of oaths of office. 

(1788), September 6 — ^Eespecting crimes and punishments. 

(1788), November 23 — ^Eegulating marriages (age for male 17, 
female 14, with consent of fathers of parties) . 

(1788), November 23 — Fixing monthly tinea for failure of recruit 
in militia tO' provide himself with the proper equipment. 

(1788), Deceniber 21 — ^Creating the office of Coroner. 

(1788), December 28 — Limiting the times of civil actions and for 
instituting criminal prosecutions. 

Each of the above laws was undersigned by Messrs. St. Clair, Par- 
sons, and Yarnum, 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. — (Territorial 
Laws. ) 

Governor St. Clair withheld his approval to a proposed law relating 
to estates held in common; he also, on July 30, called the attention of 
the judges to the provision of the ordinance which empowered them to 
"adopt'^ the laws of the older statesi, 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 GoveTOor was fully borne out, when, 
at a later period, the council found it wise to repeal by whoh^ale laws 
of their own making which had no foundation in the code of lho older 
states, and adopt others which conformed to this requirement in their 
stead. — (St. Clair Papers). 

Judge Vamum died in 1789. 



THE, SECOJSTD LiEGMSLATIVE COUKOIL. 
(1789.) 



THE ratifioation of the Conisititution of the United States by a suffi- 
Ciien't niimbeT of states having oioeurred durirLg the latter ptart of 
the year 1784, and President Washington having assumed the 
reins of government thereunder, it was construed to be the duty of the 
Executive to appoint such officers whose commissions, having been is- 
sued by the Congress under the old form of governmont, weire held to 
have expired with that governm.ent. In pursuance of this conception of 
his duty, the President, in a letter dated ISTew York, Augusit 18, 1789, 
nominated for the officers of the Northwest T'erritory : Arthur St. Clair, 
for Governor, and Messrs. Samuel Holden Parsons, John Cleves 
Symmes, and William Barton (vice Yamum, deoeiased), Judges. The 
nominations were confirmed by the Senate of the United States, but Mr. 
Barton declining fhe appointment, the President nominated Mr. George 
Turner, who was confirmed on the eighth day of September. 

There is no public record of the 'aicts of the oounicil during the yegr 
1789. In November of this year, Judge P'arsons, 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 Ee'serve.

THE year 1790 wais marked toy the sitting of the CoTincil in the farther

ing Governor, sat with Messrs. Synunes 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 Enfus Putnam, 
Jr., of Miarietta. This ooaincil, in its meeting at Vin'cennes, published 
the following laws, which were afterwards disaipproved and ordered to 
be repealed by the Cbngress, as having no foundation in the older laws 
to which the territorial eonncil was corufined 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 sol-

THE body toi which has been given in this volume the designation of 
the Third Legislative Oonncil, wasi permitted to serve with no 
change in its official membership, except that in the absence of 
the Grovernor 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.

mionths of June, July and August to a caireful reivision of the code

of July 14 in list below) eiliminated those laws to which, m exceeding the 
authority of the council, the Congress had objected, at the same time 
putting into operation raew laws ioi thieir stead, which, by a careful cita- 
tion of the authority of some one of the original states, attested the 
propriety of such act by council.

seveiral siettleaiuerntts, becamje satisfied lof the preseoioe of the necessary 
five thorasiand white male inhabitants in the tesrritoiry, issued hiis proc- 
lamaition to- the people ealling focr the election of repiresentatives to a 
generial assembly tie be convened sat Cincinnati on the fonrth day of Feb- 
ruary, 1799. This general assembly, undor the Oir*dinance of 1787, must 
ocmisist of a House O'f Represeoutativas, together witluai Legi'slative Council 
of five membeT's to' be appointed by the Freisident of the United States, from 
a Idisit of ten names to be submitted tO' him by the House of Representatives 
when so elected. The representatives were ichoisen in accordance with the 
p[rocla.mjation of the Goveirnor, and on assembling at Cincinniati on the day 
named in the ptroiclam'ation, Februiary 4, nominated the members of council 
and adjourned to meet in Cincinnati on the sixteenth of the foUoiwing Sep- 
tember, in order that the President would have an oppoirtundty to act. Of 
the ten names submitted foir his inspection and approval, the President 
nominated to the United States Senate ais memiberls of the Territorial 
Connicil (or uppar hooise) : Jacob Burnet and James Findlay of Cincinnati ; 
Henry Vanderburgh of Vincennes; Robert Oliver of Marietta, and David 
Vance of Vanoeville. 

These noiminations were promptly confirmed by the Senate and trans- 
mitted to Cincinnati, wher^e they were announced tO' the people by procla- 
mation of thie Governor.

The twOi houses having met and organized by the election of their 
officers, on the sixteenth of Septembeir, on the following djay Goveimo'r 
St. Clair addi^essed the legislature in eloquent teirms, congratulating the 
body • and the T'eiritoiry on the new form of legislative goivemmient in 
which the people now had a direct voicfe in the conduct of aifairis. Jacob 
Bumiet, a miember of the council, writing after the lapse of a half oen- 
tury, says in his "Notes on the !N"oTthwest Territo^ry^' (Cincinnati, 1847) : 

"He laid beforei them a full and faithful view of the^ oonidition and 
the wants of the Territory, and redom.mended to their attention such 
meaisures as hfe' believed were proper to advance the prosp'erity and happi- 
ness of the people" (p. 300). 

Governor St. Clair had been ini active discharge of thie duties of the 
chief executivie of the T'erritory continuously igince he had superviised the 
dispatch of the first .settlers: to the then unsettled west in 1788; he had 
joined thie 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 me'eting of this first territorial assembly; out of the 
experience of over eleven pioneier yeairsi, the governor spote to the leg- 
islators of the work before them, as no better equipped man dould speak, 
for there was no man of better equip'ment for the duty. Of Governor 
St. Clair's influence at thiis time Mr. Burnet says (p. 378) : "And it 
may be said with gr^at truth, that at the time he addressed the First 
Territiorial Legislature in 1799, he posselsised as great, if not a greater 
shiaire of the confidenoe and respect of the people of the Territory than any 
other individual residing in it." 



THE BIOGRAPHICAL ANNALS OF OHIO. 137 

The First Session of the First Territorial Legislature. 

This betmg ihe first fsessiom of any repiiB^eiiitative legislajtive body in 
the Tefrritory, the tramsitioai from the first to the isecxm'd gmd^ of gov- 
ernment inytolved a generial revilsAon of the laws in foTce; new laws to meet 
the changied conditions ; new officers and new duties for those already estab- 
lished; and a plan must be conceived by wthich to meet the increased ex- 
pienditnres of a semi-independent goveTnment. Many of the members 
boing inexperienced in legislative matte(rs, the active work of the session 
fell on a few of the men who had been moist 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 T'erritory in the Congress 
of the United States, his election being contesited by Arthur St. Clair, Jr., 
who wals beaten by one vote. Captain Harrison was secretary of the 
Territofiy at the time of his election, Mr. St. Clair, son of the G^ovemor, 
being its aittorniey. Mr. Hanrison resigned his position as secretary and 
at once pirfoceeded to his duties in the Congreiss. 

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. coide; the Ordinance of 1787 formed a broad 
and libieral baisisi for the government which hais since grown up under its' 
provisions, but there was much legislation needed to' isupplement and make 
practical its several declarations. The governior and the judges had selected 
or maide lawsi, fromi time to itime, negleicting many important interests, 
and impierfeotly providing for others which were touched upon; one of 
the statutes of Virginiai had been adopted which put in operation the 
English common law and certain Englisih statutes of a date prior to' the 
fourth, year of the reign of James I. ; 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 Tlerritory, and there fell upon the legisla- 
ture at this fiirst session the duty of "repealing, amending, enacting and 
supplementing," in isuch 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. 

Eollowing is a isumnuairy of the acts of this aissembly : 

'acts OF THE FIRST SESSION OF THE FIRST TERRITORIAL LEGISLATURE (1799).

ing of the laws of the session, on December 5. Mr. Sibley certifies, May 7 following, 
that he has carefully compared the printed laws with the original enrolled bills, 
and finds them to agree. The act bears the signatures of Edward Tiffin, Speaker 
of the House of Representatives, H. Vanderburgh, President of the Council, and are 
approved by Ar. St Clair, Governor. 



THE SiEOOND SESSION OF THE FIRST TERRITOEIAL 
LEGISLATURE. 

(Chillcothe, Novembeb 3, 1800.) 



IT wiajs in oommoction with tiliie work of this fin»t session of the legisMiure 
that the signs of a^proaiohing disagreement with the govemoir nuajde 

their aippeairance. Gov^elmar St. Clair (aissTimeid that he was a bilalnoh 
of th^e lassembly and that he had an ahsoliite right to veto the ajcts of the 
two homses. He claimed the right, as goviemior, to lay out and change 
the hoaindairies of ooniities under the Otpdiniance of 1787, regacrdless of 
the exprressions frpom the legiislatniie, aaid was no dofiibt sincere in his 
effoipfcs 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 ajs time went on. Judge Bumet says, in the book 
alreaidy quoted: "The effect of the construction he gave of his own power 
may be iSeen in the faet that of thirty bills paissed by the two houses 
during the first scission, and sent to him- for his approval, he refuseid 
assent to eleven', some of which were supposed to be of much importance, 
and all of them eakulated, more lor leasi, to advanioe the public interest. 
S'ome of them he rejected beoauisie they related to the estaiblishm'ent 
oif new eOiuoitieis; others becaiulse he thought they were unnecessary or in- 
expedient. Thus, more than a third of the fruits of the labor of that 
entire session wais lost by the exercise of the arbitrary discretion of one 
man." (p. 376.) 

In thi0 eonneotion it may be iwell to aidd that the governor was not 
sustained in his polsitioin when he submitted toi the Sienate of the United 
States his repiotrt of new counties laid out after the legislature of the 
Territoiry had eomie into existenicfe. It wais held that the governor of the 
Tk-ritoiry hald exhausted his authority when he had once laid out the 
whole tertritoiry into cioouities (which Goverlior St. Clair had done eatrly 
in his administration) and that subsequent rearrangemetnts or divisions 
vested solely in the territorial legislaiture. This decision was not aieaohed 
in time to prevent a recurrence of -the differiences between the govemOT 
and the legislature at its second seslsion in 1800, but was graitifying to 
those membetrs who had beien engaged on the legislative iside of the ques- 
tion during the first twto isessions. 

The legislature istood proroigued to meet in Cinciinnati on the first 
Monday in November, 1800. By refeiremce to an act of Cfongress of 
the United States May 7 of 'that yeatr (See Pairt One), it will be noticeld 
that after the adjounnment of the first sessiion of the legislature, the 
Northwest Territory was divided by a line rumiing due north from the

mouith of ithe Keaitucky Eiver, inito an easfcem part which Tetained th'e 
old namiQ amid govermniieait, and ai westiern piairt which was given the name 
of THE TERRiTOEY OF INDIANA^ and a nicw government of the first grade 
established thel"ein, the officers of which were toi be appointed by the 
President. This act of C'OQgresis was aioquiesced in by the G'overnor and 
legislatnre of the tenritoiry with great reluctance, aaid wais regarded by 
the beist m^en in the Tierritoiry to be an -unwarranted agsumpition of legis- 
lative power on the pa;rt of the Congress. President Vis^niderburg of the 
Gonncil wals thns legislated ont of offiice and became la citizen of the new 
territoTy. Eepireisentativeis Shadrack Bond, of St. ClaiT County, John 
Edgar, of Randolph Cbnnty, and John Small, lof Knox County, also 
lost their seats in the Honse of Eiepreisentatives for the igame reasdn, and 
the constituents of these gentlemen were isummarily deprived of a voice 
and a membership in that local territorial government, for which they had 
but recently voted. The seiat of government for the new territory was 
fixed by Congress at Vincennes, and the siame aict named the village of 
Chillioothe, inistead loif -the already established capital at Cincinnaiti, as the 
seat of government for the old teirtritory. It Was charged tihat this act 
of Congress was urged by two ot three ardent anid aggressive spirits 
who hoped to bring about san early state govemmient in Ohio, and were 
already planning 'to aeoomplish the removal of Governor St. Clair and 
his administration. 

Pursuant to the call issued by the Governor under the new order, 
the miembera of the legislature met in Chillicothe on the third day of 
November, 1800. This was almotet exactly one hundred year's ago, it 
being an interesting fact that the editor writes these lines on the twenty- 
sixth day of October, 1900. The council met in the house of Joseph 
Tiffin, the council chamber in the new oapitol not being ready for occu- 
pancy. As there is no record to' the contrary, it is probable that the 
represetntatives were better provideid for. The composition of th« legis- 
lature at thils iseoond session was as follows: 

IN THE COUNCIL. 

Jaoob Burnet, of Hamilton County (Cincinnati). 
Eobert Oliver, of Washington County (Marietta). 
David Vance, of Jefferson County (Vanceville). 
Jameis Findlay, of Hamilton County (Oinciwnati). 

Mr. Vanderburg, of Vincennes, having for reasons already given, 
lost his seat in the icouncil, Mr. Oliver .was elected president of that body, 
Mr. Williaml 0. Sehenck (secretary of the Territory) acting as secretary 
to the oouncil, ajnd WilMlam Eutledge being elected doorkeeper. To 
fill the vaiealncy in <sounicil, the Governor reque^d the Houise of Repre- 
sentatives to nominate to the Presiident of the United Sitates two names

of Solomon Sibley^ of Dietroit, amd Siamaiel Findlay (Finley?), of Cincin-

who had resigned to accept the appiointment atS governor of the territory 
of Indiana, and also to elect a delegate for th'e long term beginniag on the 
fifth day of March, 1801. On the sixth day of November the two houses 
met in joint iSelsision in aooordance with a previous resolution to that effect, 
and elected ais delegates to Congress: William McMillan, of Hamilton 
County, for the unexpired term ending March 4, 1801, and Paul Fearing,

The Second Session of the First Territorial Legislature. 



Mr. McMillaai at onoe rasigned fcrom the House and proceeded to his 
new duties. 

The wiork of leigislation was hegun with mutual expTessions of regard 
between the G^O'VeanJOlr amd thie memhere of the assembly, notwithstandiing 
the differenjoeis of the praceding winter. On NovembeT b, the Gov^moir 
visited the joint asisiembly aind delivered an aiuinual meseage of kindly 
totne in which he ispoke of the near 'approiach of the end of his term of 
office anid of their own,. He meoitioned the efforts of his ajdversaries only 
to remiark: "The rem'orse of their own comiscieniceis will one day be pun- 
ishment sufficient. Their acts may, howeveir, succeed. Be that as it may, 
this I am certaiai, that, be my isucoesaor who he may, he can niever 'have 
the interests of the people of this Tierritory more truly at heart than I 
have had for them, ruor labor moire assiduously for their good than I have 
done; and I am not consciouls tbat any one act of my administration has 
been inliuenoed by any other motive than a^ sincere deisire to promote their 
welfare and happiness. ^^ 

To this the assembly drafted its formal reply and asked the Governor - 
to fix an hour wh,eai he could receive the ooonmittee and hear the same. 
On receiving an intimation of his convenience, the committee fotrmally 
wfaited on him in the executive chamjber at 10 o'clock a., m., Monday, 
November 17, anid afterward returned to their respective 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 expre'ssionis of 
confidence in which ithe House had clothed its message to him. 

Grovemior St. Clair, in a message to the House December 2, 1800, 
calls to their attention the fact that, as hiis 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 impiortance to be transacted should 
njot be too long postponed. He says in this case the Secretary of the 
-Territory can not supply to the Aissembly the place of a Govemior. 

French dnihabitants of the County of Wayne presented to the House, 
December 4, a pietition in French language which was referred to Messrs. 
Kimberly and Yisger for tranisktion. (p. 95.) This committee repoirt>ed 
later in the day that the petition wals for a redresis of certain grievances, 
and it was referred to the Committee on Propositions and Grievances. 

A proposition was submitted that the aissembly should hold its ses- 
sions in rotation als follows: The first session to be held in the town of 
Mairietta, the (second in the town of Cinicinnati, and the third in the towQ of 
Chillicothje. This was agreed to by the House, 10 to 8. 

A motion to hold the sessions in Cincinnati was lost, 4 to 14. THie bill 
Ms finally defeated by striking out the enaicting clause, on a vote not 
given, (p. 109.) 
' • Adjourned by the Governor December 9, 1300. (S J., p. 77.)

The First Session of the Second Territorial General Assembly. 



The Houise OTganized <m the tweety-fouTtli of November iby the 
electiooi of the fiollowing offioars: Eidward Tiffin, Speaker; John Eeilly, 
Clerk. 

The seiats of MiessTs. Scheifflin and McDougall, lof Wayne Coiunty, 
were oontesited, bnt they were declared to be entitled to their seats. 

The fiinianoeis lof the Territory were in snch condition that the gov- 
ernor, w'ho had been reappointed dnring the ladjonrnment of the aissembly, 
in his address at a joint isession of the two hionses eaUed toi be held in 
"Mr. Gregg's HalF' for the purpose said: "The T^ritory 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 ex- 
penses of the present session. A wretched expedient, it is true, because the 
bills suffer a depreciation in the hands they paiss through, anld the public 
pays the full interest.'' 

During this isiession of the G-enierial Assembly, a bill was passed trans- 
ferring the ©eat of govennimient to Cincinnati, from which city it had been 
remoA^ed by a provision in the tenritoriial act of 1800, 'ajnd as an expres- 
sion of feeling on the pairt of the local inhabitants, a number of the 
members of the legislature, laod also the govemoa*, were set upon in Chilli- 
cothe on the twenty-fifth and twenty-isixith of Decembier. The matter 
was made a subject for official investigation. 

At 12 of'dock njoon, on Janaiary twenty-third, the Cbuncil attended 
the chamber of the House of Representatives in a body, where the j'oint 
assembly was addrelsised by Goviernor St. Clair, and adjourned by him to 
meet in second session in Cincinnati on the fourth Monday of the folloiwing 
November. (1802.) It should be noted hcTe that this prropiosed second 
session of the second and last territoirial legislature was never held. 
The reason is given in the following interesting extract from the memoirs 
of a memb'ea* of !the Council speaiking of the first constitutional convention : 

^*As the territorial legislature was in existence, and isitood adjourned, 
to meet at Cincinnati om the fourth Monlday 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 pireoaution ^was altogether unnecessary, ais no dispoisition existed 
among the memlb'ers, either to embarrassi, or in amy way interfere with the 
movements of the convention. That such a disposition did not exist was 
verified by the facft that the day for the meeting of the legislature oame 
anid passed; the miembers remaining at home ais by coimmon consent. No 
attempt was made by the governior, or by any of the members, to convene 
that body, till its exiistence was terminaited, and it was -succeeded by the 
General Assembly, under the State Constitution." (Notes on the North- 
western Territory, 1847, by Judge Jacob Burnett, a member of >the Terri- 
toirial Council.)

THE QUBSTIOIsr OF THE BOUNDAEY OF THE STATE. 



THE quetatioiDj of boimd'ary, though not expressly referred to the oon- 
vention (The CoTistitutioai'al CiorLvention of 1802) was one of 
greater importance than would appiear at first view. It is generally 
knjO'wn to thoise who have consulted the ma pis 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 position which it hais ®ince been 
ascertained to occupy. On a map in the Departmenit of State (at Washing- 
ton) which was before the committee of Congreiss who formed the ordi- 
nance for the gov'emment of the Territoiry, thie southern boundary of that 
lake waiS laid doiwn as being near the forrty-seoond degree of north lati- 
tude;, an^d there was a pencil line paissing through the isouthem bend of 
the lake, to the Canada line, which intersected the strait between the Eiver 
Rai©in and the town of Detroit. The line was manifestly intended by the 
committee, and by Congress, to be the noirthem boundary of this state; 
and that map, and the line marked on. it, should have been taken as con- 
clusive evidence of the boundary, without ref erenoe tO' the actuial position 
of the southern extreme of the lake. 

Wh.en the C'onvemtion was in session in 1802, it was the prevailing 
opinion that the old maps were coirrect; and that the line, as defined in 
the oiildiniance, would terminate at some point on the strait far above the 
Maumee Bay; but, while that 'subject was under discussion, a man who 
had hunted many y^ars on Lake Michigam and was well acquainted with 
it® poisition, happened to be in Chillico'the, and in conversation with some 
of the miembers, mentioned tO' them that the lake extended much farther 
south than was generally supposed; and that a mapi he had seen placed 
its southern bend matny miles notrth of its truie piosition. Hiis statemient 
piroduceid some apprehension and excitement on the subject, and indujoed 
the convention to change the line presicribed in the act of Congress, so 
far as tO' provide that if it should be found to strike I^ake Erie below the 
Maumee River, as th'e hunter informed them it would, them the boundary 
of the state should be a line drawn from the pioint where the prescribed 
line intersected the west boundary of the state, direict to the most northern 
cape of the Maiumee Bay. TOiat provision saved to the State of Ohio the 
valuable poirts and harbors on the Maumee River and bay, which were the 
prize contendeid for in the "Michigan war of GroveTnoa- Lucas." Yet some 
of the members (of the Ciomvention) hesitated in making the provision, 
lest it might cause delay; but fortunately it wais adopted and its object is 
now secure." (Burnett's "Kotes on the Northwestern Territory," 1847, 
p. 360.) (See also the language of the Acts of Congress, 1800, 1802-1812, 
quoted in Part I of this publication. — Editor.

THE aENEEAL ASSEMBLY OF THE STATE OF OHIO. 

(1803-1902.) 



THE third legisliative body to icome intO' powor in the territory ciom- 
prised in the present isttate was tiie Greneral Assembly of the State 
of Ohio^ whiich, foiUowing the adoption of the State Comstitution 
ainid the admission ol the state into the Uniion of States, wais organized fo-r 
its first session, on the first day of Mairch, 1803. 

Tbe legislative bioidy thus inaugurated has beien an en ormolus factor 
foir good in the omward aaiid forward ptrogress of OiMo during the past Imn- 
dred years. No group of men have served the state with so little personal 
gain as have her legislators. No body of public men. has done so moich 
to emcouirage miO'rality, industry aaaid patriotism. The wander oif it is — not 
that legiBlatoirts have oooasionially made pensonal mistakes — rbut thiat in 
no matter what strait or dilemma, Ohio has. always had in hier service, 
practically without leompemsatiO'n, so many mien wiho' were not only patrioits, 
but mJen who exhibited the wiisdoim laod had the courage to' handle the 
a,ff airs of isitate with hjonor tO' themsielves, to tlieir constituents and the name 
of an Ohioan. When the enioirmons poiweir Oif a GeneTal Asisembly is fairly 
unjderstood, the moire honor is found tO' b^e due those men who, since the first 
settler landed on 'thie western bank of the Ohio', in 1788, bave never used 
that poiwer as a. body, except to advance the state in dignity and in pros- 
perity, land in evidences' of fealty in every hour lof danger to the general 
goveirnnient. More or less acqualintance with members of recent aissem- 
blies, and a quite studions attention tO' the records of the past century 
in Ohio, gives pioint to these observations.

TWENTIETH AND TWENTY-SECOND DISTRICT. 

Composed of the counties of Belmont, Harrison, Jefferson and Columbiana. 




FRANK B. ARCHER, op Bellaibe. 
President Pro Tern. 

The Senator from the Twentieth and Twenty- second Districts, who is now serving 
his second term in the Senate, had the unusual honor to be twice nominated to rep- 
resent his district in the 74th and 75th Greneral Assemblies of Ohio by acclamation. 
He is an active and enthusiastic Republican in Eastern Ohio, and his nomination was 
the natural expression of the confidence of his constituents in his ability to look after 
their interests, both as partisans and as citizens of Ohio, a trust which has not been 
misplaced. 

Senator Archer was born in Bellaire on the 20th day of May, 1858, and, as 
his father died in the fall of that year, leaving the mother with six children to 
support, the educational advantages afforded him were meagre. At the age of 12 
years the boy went to work in a glass factory in Bellaire, and by the time he had 
passed his 17th birthday he had finished his apprenticeship at the trade and was 
commanding the wages of a master tradesman in the business. In 1884 he left the 
factory to engage in the stationery and insurance business. Two years pre- 
viously he had been elected To^vnship Treasurer of Pultney township, and this served 
to introduce him to the political field of activity. 

He has served two terms as a member of the City Council of Bellaire, and 
was for two years President of that body. He was elected Treasurer of Belmont 
county in 1889, and was re-elected for a second term to that office. He was promi- 
nently mentioned for State Treasurer at the State Convention of his party at 
Zanesville, but was defeated in the nomination largely by geographical considerations 
in the make-up of the ticket. Senator Archer has served his party twice as Chair-

man of the Belmont County Republican Executive Committee, and has been an 
active member of that organization in its campaigns for many years. 

Of recent years the Senator has been engaged in the business of general con- 
tractor. During his first term his most conspicuous service was as a member of the 
standing committees on Finance, Railroads, Taxation, Public Works and Public 
Lands, and on Manufactures and Commerce, being chairman of the last two com- 
mittees named. In addition to his duties as the junior presiding officer of the 
Senate, he is a member of the standing committees on Federal Relation, Finance, 
Fish Culture and Game, Industrial Schools for Boys and Girls, Mines and Mining,

and Taxation. 




WILLIAM KING, of Magnetic Springs. 
8ergeant-at-Arms of the Senate. 

William King, Sergeant-at-Arms of the Senate, was born September 1, 1855, on 
a farm in Pleasant township, Madison county, Ohio. 

Was educated in the common schools. Followed farming until 31 years of age. 
On the account of failing health moved to Magnetic Springs, Union county, Ohio, 
in the year of 1886. Went into mercantile business in 1887. Has served two terms 
as mayor of Magnetic Springs. Was elected Sergeant-at-Arms of the 75th General

Hon. Frank Edgar Scobey, Clerk of the Senate, was born at Alcony, Miami

hood of his home and at Troy in which city he later engaged in the oil business. 
He was elected Sheriff of Miami county in 1897 and re-elected in 1899. 

In 1889 Mr. Scobey was married to Miss Mary Barringer of Covington, Miami 
county, and their home continues to be in Troy. 

Mr. Scobey has always taken an active part in political campaigns, has served 
as a member and chairman of his county committee and as a member of the Repub- 
lican State Executive Committee. As a fraternity man Mr. Scobey holds member-

GEORGE H. CHAMBERLAIN, of Elybia. 
Chairmcm of the Committee on Federal Relation. 

The nomination by the Republicans of the Twenty-seventh-Twenty-ninth Senator- 
ial district of Hon. George H. Chamberlain of Elyria was received with enthusiasm 
in every section of the district where Mr. Chamberlain is universally recognized as 
an able lawyer and a man of high character and attainments. He was born on a 
farm in Lorain county, June 21, 1862, receiving his early education in the district 
schools. At the age of 17 young Chamberlain went to Oberlin to pursue his studies, 
teaching school winters to pay his way. In the fall of 1884 he entered the law 
office of E. G. Johnson, Elyria, Ohio, and was admitted to the bar of Ohio in June, 
1887. Since that time, with the exception of six years, from 1889 to 1895, when he 
lived in Milwaukee, Wis,, he has practiced law in Elyria. 

Mr. Chamberlain descended from good Vermont and York state stock, and 
early in life became interested in all political and patriotic events. He has always 
been a stanch Republican in politics. When it came to the election in a district 
nominally Republican by 3,000 votes, he received a majority of 3,800. 

Mr. Chamberlain was married in June, 1883, to Etta K. Mynderse, and has seven 
children, four boys and three girls. He is a trustee and member of the official board 
of the M. E. Church and superintendent of the Sunday school. He is prominently 
identified with the business and social life of his home city, and is a member of the 
board of education of Elyria. He is a member of the standing committees on En- 
rollment, Judiciary, Labor, Municipal Corporations No. 2, Public Works and Pub- 
lic Lands, Public Expenditures, Taxation, Universities and Colleges, and State 
Buildings.

ated him for Probate Judge, to which office he was elected in 1890, and re-elected in

WARREN G. HARDING, of Marion. 

It is thoroughly characteristic of the Senator from the Thirteenth District that 
Jii's hastily written and modestly worded answer to a request for certiaiii iiecessary 
personal information, a year or more ago, should take this form: "Warren G. Hard- 
ing, iSenator from the 13th district; born in Blooming Grove, Morrow county, Novem- 
ber 2, 1865. Has resided in Marion since 1882. Secured an academic education at the 
old Ohio Central College at Iberia, — ^not now in existence. Taught school in 1882. 
Studied law one year, then became a newspaper writer, becoming owner of the 
Marion Star in 1884. Has it yet. Was nominated for Senate July 17, 1899, at 
Marion — first whirl in politics — and was elected by nearly 1800." 

To this may now be added the later fact that, after his first term in the Sen- 
ate he was renominated and re-elected to succeed himself, in a district which has but 
once in the past half century so honored its representative in the Ohio Senate. Sen- 
ator Harding's personal popularity has broken the "one term" rule in his Senatorial 
district. 

Senator Harding is one of the young men in the Ohio Senate. His earnestness in 
debate is equalled only by his frankness of statement. His first term of service in 
the Senate was marked by the fact that he introduced in the Senate, and stood spon- 
sor in the General Assembly for the bill reported to the Governor by the Municipal 
Code Commission. 

He is a member of the standing committees on Claims, Common Schools and 
School Lands, Federal Relation, Finance, Industrial Schools for Boys and Girls, Mili- 
tary Affairs, Taxation, Universities and Colleges, Banks, Building and Loan 
Associations.

successful judge whose experiences lie directly along the lines of the private and 
personal interests of the common people. The litigation before the Probate Court is 
a fruitful source of private weal or woe, and a legislator whose previous training 
has been along these lines in actual practice, has a distinct advanteige in consider 
ing the possibilities which lie wrapped up in the numerous propositions which come 
before the General Assembly.

SKETCH OF THE GOVERNOR. 

GEORGE K. NASH, the presenit G^emior of Ohio (see Part I, 
facing page 7), was .born in Medina County, August 14, 1842. 
His early life was spent on the fa,rm, where his parents settled 
after emigratimg frtom Massachtisetts. His early eduoatiooi was ohtained 
at the distniict schools of his toiwnishipi, whore he prepamed for college, 
entering Oherlin at the age of twenty. During his sophomoire year at this 
institution the great struggle between the North /aoid South had readied 
a criisisi, and like miany of the patribtic youth of his time, he felt it 
his duity to respond tio the call to amiis. AocoTidingly he enlisted as a 
priv<ate in the 150th 0. N. G., seiring with his characteristic integrity 
and thoroughness until idtischarged. Immediateily after the iclose of the war, 
he began the study lof law, and in 1867 was admitted to the Biair. 

Since that time his career m a lawyer has been one of steady advance- 
ment and increasing renown. In 1870 he was elected Prosieouting Attoimey 
of Ftianklin Cb'UJity amid at the end of the teirm was choisen to succeed 
himself. In 1877 he was the Republician ciandidate fOT Attonmey-Generial, 
anid though defeated with his party, he made a gallant fight. In 1879 he 
algain ran for the same offitce and was elected. Ttwoi years later he was 
re-elected, thuis holding the important anjd honoraible position of Attoimiey- 
Gienerai for la period of four yeans. Further and higher honors awaited him. 
In 1883 Governor Foster, his wa'rm friend and supporter, appointed 
him a membier of the Supreme Court Oommission, which body was cre- 
ated to aid the Suprpeme Conrt in coonpleting unfinished work. This com- 
mission sat for two yeairs, and when its Work was findjshed. Judge Xash, as 
he thieu' became kno^wn, returned tO' the pralctice of the laiw. 

Althiough taking a great interest in piolitios and doing mndh work 
for his party iini various capacities, the duties of his profession consumed 
by far the greater pontion of his time. In the spring of 1899 he became a 
candidate for nomination fo-r Govemior, and at the convention held in Co- 
lumbus in the following June was successful, being nominated on the sec- 
ond ballot by 461 votes out of a total of 820 cast. The following N'ovember, 
after a ispirited and interesting ^campaign, he was elected Governor by a 
plurality of 49,000 votes. In 1901 he was renominated by acclamation, 
and re-elected by a plurality of 67,567.

miuist 0ee thait tlhe law's are faithfuilly execufted and may reqneist of the 
execu'tive officials rep'0[rts of their respective departments. 

Ait every session of the General Assembly he must report the con- 
dition of the state by messaige, recommeniding 'therein such legislation as may 
to him iseem proper. He miay convene the General Assembly upon ex- 
traiOfrdiniary occasions. He may adjourn it in case of disagreement upon 
this 'Subject between the twO' brancheisi thereof. 

The GovernoT is Commiander-in- Chief of the army and navy and 
cusitoidian of the Great Seal of the State. 

He miay grant repirievess commutations and piatrdons. 

Such, briefly, are the constitutdionial pirovisions relating to the Chief 
Execntive. It will be observed that 'the customiao^'' veto power is withheld. 

In addition to the powers confeTired amid duties imposed upon the Gov- 
ernor by the Oonistitution, are those which the General Assembly has seen 
fit to pirovide by statute, and it is through these that the greater portion of 
the laotual duties of this office arise, las well as moist of the appointive power 
of the GovemoT. As Ciommiander-in-Chief of the 'army and navy, it seems 
appropriate that he shonld appoint the Adjutant-General, and the sixteen 
otheir members of his military istaff. 

There lare certain state offices not creaJted by the Constitution whoise 
chief incnmbents are nomiulated by the Governoir, and by and with the ad- 
viice and consent of the Sienate appointed. Such aire the Ciommissionefr of 
Insurance, Commissioner of Bailroads and Telegraphs, Commissioner of 
Labor Statistics, Inspector of WOirkshops and Factories, Chief Mine In- 
spector, State Mre Marshal, Chief Examiner of Stationary Engineers, 
State Pension Claim Agent, (and Chief Engineer of Public Work®. 

Numerous oommasisions, snch as the Canal Commission, Shiloh Bat- 
tlefield Commission, and Fish and Game Commission, containing from 
\jm> to seven members each, with terms varying from one to five years, have 
been created by law. Here vacancies are constantly occurring, which aire 
filled by the Govemior, and frequently he is called upon, when the General 
Assembly provildes for some new commission, to appoint an entire board. 

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 snperviision of the public instdtutioins, and 
is of valuable aid to the GovemoT in ^overseeing the mimeTous large sfca^e 
properties. There aire' 'thirteen benevolent, two petnlal and two corrective 
institutions in -this state. Each of these is mana-ged by a board of trustees,

CARL L. NIPPERT, of Cincinnati. 
Ex-Lieutenant-Governor and President of the Senate. 

Lieutenant-Governor Nippert made his debut in state politics in 1899, when, as 
a candidate for the Senate from the First District, he was the only candidate on 
the Republican Senatorial ticket not defeated by the Fusionists. His unimpeach- 
able record, and his personal popularity in Hamilton county, securing his election 
As a member of the Senate in 1900 — 1901 he was the author of the bill to reform 
the city government of the city of Cincinnati, and in his aggressive fight to ac- 
complish the passage of this bill, and thus to secure necessary reformation in the 
interest of good local government, he justified the expectations of his constituents. 
On the declination of Lieutenant-Governor John A Caldwell to become a candidate 
for re-nomination Mr, Nippert was put forward as the unanimous choice of the Re- 
publican State Convention for the vacancy, and aided materially in the success of 
the party ticket in the recent campaign. 

Mr. Nippert was born in Frankfort-on-the-Main, Germany, of American parents 
sojourning in that city. After enjoying a liberal education in Germany, Switzerland, 
and in this country, he became a teacher in the public schools, and was for ten 
years principal of the old Thirteenth District School of Cincinnati, now the Webster 
School on Findlay street. At that time it was the largest public school in the city. 
He began the study of law while teaching, and was admitted to the bar, graduating 
at the Cincinnati Law School in 1891 ; he has since followed the practice of his 
profession. He is the senior member of the firm of Nippert and Powell. 

Governor Nippert served as Prosecuting Attorney of the Police Court of Cincin- 
nati from 1894 to 1897, by appointment- of Mayor Caldwell, who by a singular co- 
incidence, had just preceded him in the office of Lieutenant-Grovernor. 

On May 1, 1902, Lieutenant-Governor Nippert resigned to accept appointment 
to the office of Probate Judge of Hamilton county, tendered him by Governor Nash, 
to fill a vacancy caused by the resignation of Judge Ferris. At the ensuing 
reffular election he was elected to the same office.

HARRY L. GORDON, of Hamilton County. 

Harry L. Oordon was born in the village of Metamora, Franklin County, In- 
diania, August 27, 1860. He atteoided. the public schools during the winter months and 
worked on the farm during the summer until he was eighteen years of age, when he 
left his country home for college. His college education was obtained in the Normal 
College at Ladoga, Ind., and De Pauw University, at Greencastle, Ind., from which 
university he was graduated with honors in 1882, receiving the degree of B. Ph. Three 
years later he received the honorary degree of A. M. He studied law with the firm of 
McDonald, Butler & Mason, in Indianapolis, Ind., and was <the chief clerk in that 
office from 1882 to 1887. 

In January, 1887, he removed to Wichita, Kan., where he resided for ten years. 
While a resident of Kansas he was Assistant Prosecuting Attorney, City Solicitor and 
a member of the Kansas State Senate. Immediately upon taking up his residence in 
Cincinnati he engaged actively in the practice of law, and in April, 1899, he was ap- 
pointed a member of the Board of Supervisors of said city and in the following year 
was elected President of the board, which position he held until April 1, 1903. He was 
appointed Lieutenant-Governor by Gov. George K. Nash to fill the vacancy caused by 
the resignation of Carl L. Nippert, on the 26th day of June, 1902, and at the special 
session of the legislature whic^h convened in August, 1902, he presided over the Sen- 
ate in a manner which won for him the esteem and confidence of all with whom he 
came in contact. 

Mr. Gordon has always been an ardent and enthusiastic Republican, having parti- 
cipated in almost every campaign since he graduated from college. He is a Scottish 
Rite Mason, Knight Templar and a member of the Mystic Shrine, and belongs to the 
leading clubs and business organizations of Cincinnati. 

He was married April 20, 1892, to Esther L. Langtree, of Aurora, Ind., and has 
one son, Harry L. Gordon, Jr., who is nine years of age. 

Few men have risen more rapidly in political affairs in the state of Ohio than 
has Mr. Gordon, and he is today recognized as one "of the potent factors not only in 
the affairs of the city wherein he resides, but throughout the emtire state as well.

The duties of tbe pTi^aite secretary tO' the Goveriiioir are, as the name

pensation of $800.00 per amniuin is but a piartial cioimpeoisatioai for the 
importan'ce of the poisition. The following list of private siecretaries is

THE ATTORNEY-GENEEAL. 




JOHN" M. SHEiET'S waisi b'orrn neair Col-iunbus G-rove, Putniaim ooTinty, 
Ohio, Miay 26, 1854. His fathieT wais a Penousylvianiaiii, of G^enruan 
•anoesitry ; his miofther a New England Yaiokee. He wias educated in 
the public isichioiols,, ainid at the age of twen,ty began teiaching. Afteirwiards 
he laittendeid the Union sichoiol at CokLnxbuis Gnrove, and in the fall of 1876 
entered the freahman Am lin Baldwin Uiniversity, a.t Berea, Ohio. He 
completed a four yeatrs^ connsie in three, besides taking a, nnmber of elective 
studies. Mlathenuatics being hiis special forte, he took every branch tangtM 
in the University, save one. 

In the fall of 1879 he entered the law depiajrtmienjt of the University of 
Michigan, and graidnJaited in Mardh, 1881. On April 5 followirig he was 
admitted to the bar by the Supreme Oourt lof Ohio, and lopemed an office in 
Ottawa., where he now resides, and where he igoon acquired lanid now en- 
joys, lan ex'tenaive prraotice'. 

In 1893, as the candidate of the Eepublican party, he wajs' elected 
judge of the Commion Pleas Court iai the sub- judicial district composed of 
the oounities of Fulton, Heryry, and Putnam, hieing the first EjepublicaJi 
ever elected m .thait 'subdivision. On aiocount of the fact that the di'strict

inaition previo'Uis to ithiiis time;, but Mr. Sheets, with his dha'iiaicteriistie cour- 
age, accepted 'the >iiiormjiiiiatiocn, amd lais an evidence ol his piopulianity amoGiig 
the people lotf the eoTuities oompoisiiig the subdivisaoin, he was eleated by 
over 1700 majority; he wais reiuomiii'ated ini 1898, and althooigh the Demo- 
cratic maijority oai the general ticket wais 2086, Judge Sheets came within 
thirty votes ol being again elected. 

On laisisaiming the office of judge, he fo^und 'the conrt very greatly 
overcrowded with business, so much soi, iirudeed, that several unsuccessful 
attempts had been made to secure legislation authoirizitag an additional 
juidge in said :saibdivision ; but Judge Sheets ideveloped an unusual capaicity 
for the despatch of business, and in a short time, the docket was cleared. 
His business methods were very piopular, and his services on the bench were 
in demland. He hais received very miany high eomplimicnts, from both 
the bench and the bar, ais well aiS froan the press of his. district, on his 
ability as la. judge, atad on his conspicuous business methods. 

While a student at the University of Michigan, he became acquainted 
wiith Miss Mairy Eu S^cott, alsoi a istudent at the same University, to whom 
he was married Mlarch 22, 1882, and has a. family of five idaughters. 

John M. Sheets;, as boy and man, always enjoyed the confidence and 
esteem of his aissociates., and this was never mioire striking than in his 
student days at Ann Arbor; and as an instance, his acquaintanceship 
with Hon. H. M. Diaugherty is conspicuous. They first met as situdents 
at the Unjiverisity, and their relaitiionjs develoiped a, cilose personal friiend- 
ship whiiich has ever since continued. They were students in the same 
class, and graduated at the same time, and it was a pleasant surprise to 
both when they met in the same class for esaminatioini for admission to the 
bar, where they were hoth adm^itted to the piraotice of 'the law. 

, At the Eiepublican State Convention at Columbus, held June 1 and 
2, 1899, after a spirited contest, he wasi, 'Oai the third ballot, nominated 
the candidate for attorney-general; his nomination before the call of the 
roll of thei counties was completed, being made; unanimous by aoclamiation. 
In 1901 he was TeHelected. Jndge Sheets has always been an active, ag- 
gresisive Eepuiblican, never hiding hisi light under a. buishel, but withal, a 
liberal and fair oppionent.

relating to or used in the survey of the public lands within the State, and 
is required by law to keep a record of deeds ex^ecuted by the Governor. 
He is required to pirepiarre all forms and instructions for county officers, 
and county officials are required, by law, to use such blanks and obiey 
such instructions. He is required to audit all requisitions, vouchers and 
claims againist the State, and pass upon the validity and corrreotness of the 
same before issuing his warrant on the State Tl*easury for paymient. He is 
required to direct suit to be brougtht agaiinst deHnquent revenue officials, 
and look after and see to the collection of all claims in favoT of the Staite. 
He may 'remit illegal taxes or pienalties and direct that tax duplicates be 
ooirreoted. 

Thie work in the office has been greatly increalsed since the present 
auditor went into office as chief clerk in 1888 by reaison 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 
pirevent an increase in the commion burden of taxation upon private in- 
dividuials and small properrty holders. The work of putting various revenue 
acts in operation fell upon this departmeint as foUowis: 

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, telegnaph and tele- 
phone 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 companies, 
was passed, land 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 'l902.

In 1894 an act taxing sleeping-car companies was passed and put in operation, 
which brings into the State Treasury $5,500 annually.

In 1896 an act levying an excise tax on the gross receipts of all public corpora- 
tions (electric light, gas, natural gas, pipe line, water works, street railroads, rail- 
roads and messenger or signal companies). In 1902 this law was amended so as to 
include suburban or interurban railroad, telegraph, telephone, express and union 
depot companies, and the tax increased to one percent on the gross receipts, which 
yielded last year for state purposes the sum of $1,432,000.

the GovettTDJor appointed the Honi. R. G. Richards, of S-tenbenville, a former 
lieutenant- Govemoir of Ohio. There have been no other ichanges in the 
board .since its creation in 1893. 

1. OBJECT AND DUTIES OF THE BOARD. 

The State Board of Arbitration and Conciliation is charged with the duty, upon 
due application or notification, of endeavoring to effect amicable and just settlements 
of controversies or differences, actual or threatened, between employers and employees 
in the state. This is to be done by pointing out and advising, after due inquiry and 
investigation, what, in its judgment, if anything, ought to be done or submitted to 
by either or both parties to adjust their disputes ; of investigating, where thought ad- 
visable, or required, the cause, or causes of the controversy, and ascertaining which 
party thereto is mainly responsible or blameworthy for the continuance of the same. 

2. HOW ACTION OF THE BOARD MAY BE INVOKED. 

Every such controversy or difference not involving questions which may he 
the subject of a suit or action in any court of the state, may be brought before the 
Board; provided, the employer involved employs not less than twenty-five persons in 
the same general line of business in the state. 

The aid of the Board may be invoked in two ways: 

First — The parties immediately concerned, that is, the employer or employees, or 
both conjointly, may file with the Board an application which must contain a con- 
cise statement of the grievances complained of, and a promise to continue on in 
^business, or at work ( as the case may be ) , in the same manner as at the time of the 
application, without any lockout or strike, until the decision of the Board, if it shall 
be made within ten days of the date of filing said application. 

A joint application may contain a stipulation making the decision of the Board to 
an extent Eigreed upon by the parties, binding and enforcible as a rule of court. 

An application must be signed by the employer or by a majority of the employes 
in the department of business affected ( and in no case by less than thirteen ) , or by 
both such employer and a majority of employes jointly, or by the duly authorized 
agent of either or both parties. 

Second — A mayor or probate judge when made to appear to him that a strike or 
lockout is seriously threatened, or has taken place in his vicinity, is required by the 
law to notify the Board of the fact, giving the name and location of the employer, 

(519) 



520 THE BIOGRAPHICAL ANNALS OF OHIO. 

The State Board of Arbitration. 

the nature of the trouble, and the number of employes involved, so far as he can. 
When such fact is thus or otherwise duly made known to the board it becomes its 
duty to open communication with the employer and employes involved, with a view 
of adjustment by mediation, conciliation or arbitration. 

3. WHEN ACTION OF THE BOARD TO CEASE. 

Should petitioners filing an application cease^ at any stage of the proceedings, 
to keep the promise made in their application, the Board will proceed no further in 
the case without the written consent of the adverse party. 



4. SECRETARY TO PUBLISH NOTICE OF HEARING. 

On filing any such application the Secretary of the Board will give public notice 
of the time and place of the hearing thereof. But at the request of both parties 
joining in the application, this public notice may, at the discretion of the board, be 
omitted. 



5. PRESENCE OF OPERATIVES AND OTHERS, ALSO BOOKS AND THEIR CTTSTOLtlANS, EN- 
FORCED AT THE PUBLIC EXPENSE. 

Operatives in the department of business affected, and persons who keep the rec- 
ord of wages in such department and others, may be subpoenaed and examined under 
oath by the Board, which may compel the production of books and papers containing 
such records. All parties to any such controversy or difference are entitled to be 
heard. Proceedings before the Board are conducted at the public expense. 



6. NO COMPULSION EXERCISED, WHEN INVESTIGATION AND PUBLICATION REQUIRED. 

The Board exercises no compulsory authority to induce adherence to its rec- 
ommendation, but when mediation fails to bring about an adjustment it is required 
to render and make public its decision in the case. And Avhen neither a settlement 
nor an arbitration is had, because of the opposition thereto of one party, the Board 
is required at the request of the other party to make an investigation and publish its 
conclusions. 



7. ACTION OF LOCAL BOARD ADVICE OF STATE BOARD MAY BE INVOKED. 

The parties to any such controversy or difference may submit the matter in dis- 
pute . to a local board of arbitration and conciliation consisting of three persons 
mutually agreed upon, or chosen by each party selecting one, and the two thus chosen 
selecting the third. The jurisdiction of such local board as to the matter submitted to 
it is exclusive, but it is entitled to ask and receive the advice and assistance of the 
State Board. 



8. CREATION OF BOARD PRESUPPOSES THAT MEN WILL BE FAIR AND JUST. 

It may be permissible to add that the act of the General Assembly is based upon 
the reasonable hypothesis that men will be fair and just in their dealings and rela- 
tions with each other when they fully understand what is fair and just in any given 
case. As occasion arises for the interposition of the Board, its principal duty will 
be to bring to the attention and appreciation of both employer and employes, as best 
it may, such facts and considerations as will aid them to comprehend what is rea- 
sonnble, fair and just in respect of their differences- 



THEi BOAED OF STATE CHARITIES. 



THE Ohio Board of State Chlaritiiels is composed of six mjembecps 
appioinjted by tibe Govenioir. Tihe law requires tliait the memibOT- 
•ship shall be eqiually divideid betweeirii the two loading political 
paTtie®, and fixes the term of office at three j&slTS. The miemibers receive 
nio compemsatiiiorii foir thedr eervice's, but their actual expienses incurred in 
the discharge of their duties are paid by the State. The Board appoints 
its ownj iseoretary, who' is not a member of the Board. It is required to hold 
quarterly meetinlg's, but special mieetings may be held at amy time. 

It was first established by an ^act of the legislature passed in 1867, 
Massachusetts being the onlj state to precede Ohio in the enactnaefnt of 
such a law. Its organization at that time was due to the efforts of a 
member of the House of Representatives fro^m Cuyahoga county, Hon- 
orable D. A. Dangler, who h'ad the support of the then Governor^ Jacob 
D. Cox. The motive that actuated Mr Dangler in the introduction of 
his measure is defined by him as follows: "I availed myself of the op- 
portunity, as a member of the Ohio Legislature, of visiting the state 
institutious for the purpose of familiarizing myself, as far as possible, 
with their arrangement. It was after such a visit that I became im- 
pressed that the citizens of the great state of Ohio should have a more 
perfect knowledge of the management of these institutions than was 
gained by the annual visits of their representatives in the Legislature." 
In a speech advocating the passage of the bill introduced by him, Mr. 
Dangler said: 

"My objects are, by the agenicy of a common center and common 
head, to crystallize thoise vacriouis isuggestions tending towards reformation 
and economy in the present system of management and extend their ap- 
plioation to lall alike by (the siame agency; to extract from the systems 
in use in the European istates and countries, such ideias ais may be appili- 
cable to our peculiar wants and requirements ; through the introduction of 
statistics and analytical reoorids, toi assist in the diminution of crimes, suf- 
fering and sickness, by pointing out the causes, occasion and ith© source ; 
by the aidoption of isimilar rules and regulattionsi for institutions of sl like 
character, tO' render their management unifonn, harmonious and effective, 
and by a common standard of qualification for the various offices:, pre- 
vent the appointment of any but those fully qualified to discharge the 
various duties with honesty and efficienicy.'^ 

In 1872 the Board was abolished, but it was again organized in 
18Y6 under the old law with the additional provision for a salaried sec- 
retary. On April 15, 1880, the law was so amended as to provide for 
a Board of six members, instead of five, the original nnmber. 

The Boiard is required to submit an annual repoirt to the Legislature, 
setfciQg foirth the condiitionjs of the institutions coming under its super- 
vision, together with any suggestions or recommendationis it may have

duties devolving upon it is that requiring the submission of all plans for

Board for oritioism and approval. The Govemior of the State is ex-officio 
piresiident of the Bioiard, and may, at any time, order an investigation by the 
Board, or a committee of its membere, of any institution over which it has 
supervisoTy power. -

The state Board of Health.

appiointieid Siecretary on (the isiaooiie daite. Dr. Probst has oouitinuougly filled 
the piotsitioin ©inic© thiat timo, and is ihe pireisent Secrerta^ry. 

The Board first directed its effoTte to huildiag up a, complete health 
drgandzatioiii' for fthe lenitire Stete. In 1886 the liairger cities smd a very 
few villageis were the only municipialitie© that had aYailed themiselves of 
the pro'visiions of an aict permitting them tO' establish a local board of health. 

In furtheranoe of its work in this direction 'the Board began, in 
1897, a 'Systematic eisaminaition of the streams of Ohio. Eaich main stream, 
wi'th its tributairies, has been oairef ully examined from source to outlet with- 
a view to deteirmiining -the isouroe anid character of its pollution. Monthly 
che'mical and baoteriological examinationis of the waters lof th^eise streams, 
taken at various places on each stream, haive been made, and caireful 
gaigings and mmisurememts to determine their rates of flow at diffeErent 
seasons of the year. This work is about eompleted. 

Am ^acft of 1900 authorrized the Board to establish a Laboiratoiry "for 
the e: aminatiooi of public water supplies, the diagnosis of diphtheria, 
typhoid fever, hydrophobia,, glanders, ete., and foir the eLxamJinatiom of food* 
suspected to be the cause of disease." 

The LabomtoTy has been placed at the disposal of all local b'Oards 
of health, and much good has already resulted from its establishment. 

The Board is firequently called up'on to examine the sanita.ry condition 
of public insti'tutions and school buildings;, to inveistigate the causes of 
outbreaks of epidemic diseases, and to assist the looal authotrities in the 
aba/tement of nuisances injurious to health. 

Beginning with' a SIecre*ary, .the working force of the Board hais been 
gradually increased until it now embraces a chief clerk, two istenographei^s, 
an engineer, a chemist and a bacteriologist. 

The imniiense growth of public sentiment in the last ten years in favor 
of improved sanitary conditiions and more stringent measures for the pren 
vention of disease has been due in no ismall part to the pa^ogressive char- 
acter of the w^ork of the State Board of Health; and we may confidently 
hope that 'this eailightened sieotimient will gradually lead to a more gen- 
erous suppoirt of health mmisures, whereby the sum of human happiness 
and average duration of life may be materially increased. 

The' State Board of Health secured legislation from time to time, 
gradually extending the powers and duties of local boands of health, and 
nuaking' provision for their establishment throughout the State. In 1893 
the townships, which up to that time had had practically no protection 
in hmMi matters, were required to eistablash boards of health, so that pro-

visiom is now made for a board of health, in every city, village and township, 
a grand total of 2,112 snch boards. 

The State Board has kept in close tionch with the local boards, and 
is constantly helping them by aid and advice. 

In 1888 a monthly jonmal was established as a medium of frequent 
commimication between the sitate and local boards of health. A sum- 
ma.ry of the weekly reports of contagioras diseases, m'ade to the State Board, 
by the loaal boards, d.s published therein, with other oiriginal anid re- 
printed mia.tter of intereisit, or suitable for the guidance or instruction of 
health officers and members of boards of health. 

In 1891 a call was issued for a meeting of the State Board of Health 
and representatives of local boards of health. About forty delegates were 
preseni} at this meeting. Annual meeitings have been held regularly since; 
the attendance at the meeting for 1901 was nearly or quite four hun- 
dred. 

The Sitaite Board has endeavored to disiseminate am^ong the people 
plain instruiotions for the prevemttion of the dangerous contagious di'seases. 
Suitable pamphlets were prepared, and hundreds of thousands of copies have 
been distributed. All local bioards of health have been supplied with copies 
of these, and when a contagious disease appears in any community they are 
urged to distribute the appropriate circuliar to famiMeis having the disease, 
and to thear neighbors. 

In 1893 an act was passed providing that planis for all propoised water 
works or sewerage systems, or for changes or extensions thereof should be 
submitted to and approved by the State Board of Health. The Board has 
examined and passed upion two hundred and twenty such plans. It has 
been able in ijhis way to protect mlany icioinmunities against the introduc-
