HIS SPECIAL MESSAGE TO THE
OHIO GENERAL ASSEMBLY.
HE STRIKES FROM THE SHOULDER.
The Deplorable Condition of Public
Affairs in Cincinnati.
OFFICIALS TRAFFIC IN THEIR OWN VOTES.
Even "Houer Amssg Thieves," Says the
Governor, Has Been Forgolten.
Want of Popular Oenfidenee,
E.TKCUTIVH ClUMBKIt, COLUMnUS.
Ohio, Oct. II. The following Is tlto
BFcdal message of Governor Campbell
to the General Assembly: "The extra
ordinary power of calling a special
cession of your honorable body has been
Invoked on account of the deplorable
condition of public affairs In the city of
Cincinnati, which, It is believed, can bo
Barllally remedied by onabllnz the peo
ple of that city to choose certain Im
portant boards at the approaching No
vember election. Tho time for bogtn
nlnR the work of official reform thera
has come, and for this latttllble purpose
you are asked to submit to temporary
Inconvenience. Tho legislation pro
posed is so simple, and obviously so
just, that It is hoped you may bo able
speedily to resume your customary pur
suits. "It Is almost unnecessary to rcclto
the corrupt practices which havo ex
isted in tho city of Cincinnati. Mem
bets of public bottles havo trafficked In
their own votes without shanto nnd
with i mail pretenso of concealment. A
suit letwccn altcgcd bribetakers U
pending In court for an equal division
of brnlv ; act! honor among thlovcs has
been forgotten In tho fierce struggle to
tlrspoll the people. With n fow honor
able exceptions, tho entire public
sc i vice Is demoralized.
"ln tho Inaugural Address delivered
to you last January you were advlso I
that, 'in Justice to tho people of that city,
as well as In furtherance of sound po
litical principles, you hould carefully
consider, mature and formulate n
charter which would give them an op
portunity to manage thoir own affairs
through officers chonn by thtmnlMi.'
This recommendation is earnestly ro
nc wed. At jour next session, it Is
hoped an improved charter will be
granted that city.
"The legislation enacted by you look
ing to changes In the government of
Cincinnati merely created tho Hoard of
Public Improvements and the Decennial
Hoard of Equalization. In both cases,
however, you omitted to provide that
the people should choose these very im
portant bodies, although a majority of
each house in the General Assembly
was elected upon a platform which de
clares that 'ue tltmaiul Iht ttutcliMHt of
Uttrt that tfiti 4HubU our citm Ut chom
thtir uttH ttrrnuh.'
"The itoard of Public Improvements
thus created was clothed with subitnn
tlally the same no vers as Its predeces
sors. The only improvement In its con
struction was a provision that the mem
bers, although originally appointed by
the Governor, should lie subsequently
elected by the people. This advantage
was offset by the failure to empower the
Governor to remove his appointee
should they prove to be InerUclent or
dlshouest. A change for the worse was
a provision that three members Instead
of four could transact business, thus en
abling theni to unite and control public
"The present board entered upon its
duties under favorable auspices. Al
though It was soon subjected to criti
cism (much of it unjust) tor Its manage
ment of the water works, it was, la the
min, a eit-meanlag awl honestly
conducted body. Eater, however, it
retrograded rapidly. Certain members
vuii d hi grant valuable franehlas in
such unseemly haste, and so clearly in
viuIatb'B of public interest, that the
people began to suspect their integrity.
" f bene suspicions have since become
moie ttrudy fixed. As early as Sep
tember 1 a leading newspaper of the
elly, representing the political party to
hkn a maturity of the board adhered,
when speaking of an important fran
chise which had been a ranted (although
parlies stood ready to pay the city hand
somely for such a franchise), said that

persons desiring such appointments were
approached with Improper prorwMls.
He that as it may, It Is quite certain
that some of the members have ttnsv.ny
reputations in connection with other tv
matters, and that the board does not In
spire confidence. It beelm Its career
amidst a storm of public indignation.
"Both of these boards should 1
abolished. Their creation by appoint
ment was but depriving the people of
their rights. The boards tltemelves
are failures. Nothing remans but to
undo that which has already been done.
Let the law-making power and the ap
pointing power confess their mistakes
and join hands to rectify them. Hestore
to lite people In time for the approaeh
Ine November election the power of
choosing successors to these boards. In
the aroused state of public feeling,
growing out of recent exposures,
the feople of Cincinnati may be de
pended upon to olect capable and trust
worthy olllcers. They are In the mood
to rise to the occasion. They should
be i ncoursgetl. If this expectation be
realized and good olllccn be selected
now. It will doubtless be the commence
ment of a lasting change for the better.
A wise observer of large experience re
cently said, and said truly, that Cincin
nati was cursed with n lower moral
tone In politics than that which af
flicted any of tho othor great cities of
tho country. Now, while the people
aro awake to their condition, let us re
turn to 'Home Iltilo' let us do that
which Is always right, and which, at
this particular juncture, Is an ospeclol
"Who can object to this? Certainty
no one opposes restoring power to the
people, fiom whom all of tts receive our
temporary authority. Can It bo that
there aro persons upon these boards
who are ashamed, or afraid, to go to tho
people for their vindication? If the
gentlemen thus legislated out aro
honest men, nnd enjoy anil tie

they will welcome the opportunity
for n popular election to tho posts
they now hold by appointment; but
If they have been unfaithful and unde

render an account of their stewardship
or let tho pcoplo pass upon It at the

they nre sworn to serve, that N, la itself,

Svkacusr, Oct. II. The engagement
of Jllsa "Winnie Davis, the "Daughter
of the Confederacy," to Alfred Wilkin
son of Syracuse, which was announced
a little more than six months ago and
which created such interest In all parts
of the country, is not to result In a wed
ding. This statement came from the
lips of Mr. Wilkinson yesterday after
noon. The first intimation received that the
engagement was broken came from Xew
Orleans about a week ago, and then it
was simply sent out as a rumor. At
that time Mr. Wilkinson and members
of his family would neither affirm nor
deny the report. Various reasons were
advanced as to the rupture between
Miss Davis ami Mr. Wilkinson, the chief
being that it was the young lady 'a desire
that the engagement be broken on ac
count of Mr. W ilkinson's nauaclal pros
pect. Mr. Wilkinson's statement to a Phil
adelphU imt corresnondeat yesterday
g:es to show as muck. He said that
he wa averse to waking any statement,
but tuch conflicting reports were being
sent out that he deemed it only justice
to Hiss Davis to say that the engage
nuet was broken at her request, ami
that It was on account of her ill health.
It teems from his statement that Miss
Davis has not been in good health for
some lime and she went abroad for the
purpose of recruiting her strength. Her
trip was beneficial, but did not restore
her fully to health. Her mother and
intimate friends felt that under tke cir
cumstances it were heat that the pros
pective marriage should he annulled,
and this step was reluctantly taken by
There U general regret here that the
match will not take place, inasmuch as
it would have been onn of the most re

Murphy was given his choice and se

reason that It was nearer home. He

The TJaltlmore and Ohio Hallway
Company was charged with a violation
of the District law In having obstructed
Noith Capitol street in laying a track
and leaving ties. The warrant airnlnat
the company was obtained by Oillcer
Kemmcll. It was admitted by George
II. Hamilton, the attorney of the II it
t). Ompany, that ihe facts as com
plained of existed, but he held In his
argument that by the Congressional
set of 1KI1 and a supplemental art of
IM'.j tbty had a perfic' right to do ex
actly what they had tlono. They had In
no way tried to Interfere with the
grade of the street. They simply wanted
to lay an additional track across the
ttieet on thtir own property ami along
side of other tracks that were levllng
Into their pssienger depot. Their
passenger traffic hsd Increased to such
au extent that there was an actusl de
mand for this track. A compact made
with the District In 1835 gave the com
pany n perfect right to lay as many
tracks as they desired on their prop
erly. Mr. Hamilton raised the question
as to whether the case came under po
lice jurlidlctiuH or whether It ought
not be left to the construction of the
Mr. Dumont argued that the com
pany had, without a neceasiry permit,
gone ahead and obstructed North
Capitol street, and he questioned
whether the supplemental act of 115
was equivalent to the granting of a per
mit to obstruct the streets that they
crossed, TUe matter came up under
police regulations and the gumt crimi
nal act, and he did not see that the statute
could give the cuupauy hd permis
sion or right to violate such regulations.
Mr. Hamilton, in conclusion, said
that ft waa not necessary, as they bad
vcty frequently been told to procure a
permit. This was the tirst time that the
company hail bcenlnteifered with. The
pollen regulations referred more par
ticularly to temporary obstructions such
as leaving piles of material, a dangerous
giade or cirs upon the street crossings.
Mr. Dumont reiterated again that thn
whole matter hinged on whether the
company bad or had not obstructed
North Capitol street.
"Had the railway company de
murred," said Judge Mills, "1 should
have ruled tbat Ihe court had so juris
diction. The rights of both the
people of the District and that of
