I, The Ilroolilyn Chnrter.
Tor ninny years the local government of
Brooklyn lias been n corrupt as that of
. New York. Its system Is u hurlesquo
'. on common sense, and Its prncticiil work-
ing a disgrace to tlio country. Its Mayor
1 , l.i n political phnutom without power.
; It has two legislative boards tho Aldcr-
imcn and Supervisors. IliUf of each aro
elected every year. Ilcslilcs this dual gov
ernment there have been a number of irrn
spouslhlc commie-Ions that have fiiuan
dured tho publlo money In nil direction.
An nctivo Illng In Urooklyn has worked
tho lobby at Albany, nnd every species of
peculation has been cnnU d on undrr tho
cover of special leglslnt Ion.
As oiio half of each board went out of
' ofllce nt n time, nnd the other half held
i over until the next election, tho citizen?
) had no power to turn out of olllco u eor-
' runt majority titat had betrayed its trust.
They could only light corruption by piece
meal. Tliu portion that held over retained
control of tho city treasury, nnd elected
colleagues us bad as themselves. Tlio com
missionsthat product of Illng lutlucuco
nnd dishonest legislation united their
powers with tho SupurvUors and Alder
men who held over to corrupt the ballot.
Kleetions had become a faiec. The King
ruled nominating convention?. Candi
dates for ofllc.es of tho highest trust wcro
', In most Instances the mero tools of tho
I vilest politician?. Prolllguiy atid crime
I seemed to carry off everything lu the
shupo of political honors.
Homo years siuco sixty perrons, mostly
oftleersof election, were Indicted for clee
I tlon frauds. So potent wus thu King that
i not one was punUhed, though 11 number
j wcro convicted. Tho year beforo last It
ti was estimated that fifteen per cent, of the
;jp whole volo was spurious. Kvur sluco tho
1 Ilonrd of Aldermen were elected lu the
!JP way wo have dosciilwd and legislative
aj comiursrlons were luti odueed things hao
I'm continued to glow from bad to worse, un-
M 111 they have culminated in general eor-
A year ago lael fatl, a number of gcntlc-
M men, iiiiiong whom were such names as A.
,1 A. LOW, A. 11. ItAVMH, Wm. Maiohali,
fF John W. Hl-mkii, Fiiaxklin WooDin-rr.
) V I'. A. HCIIItOGMKII, S.1.MU III, Ml'IjKAN, C. It.
m XlAtiviN, I.vihiviu DKNNinT, and others,
I detrmlued to do their hut to redeem
M llrooklyn from tho llltig. An election law
l wns passed, of such wife and stringent
T provisions that not one finudulciit vote
f( wns oust at tho Inst election. They also
'ri flraftet 11 charier which was ileslmied to
iil restore felf-goveninieiit to tho people and
M abolish tho commissions; yet, strange to
It .! lay, that Instrument wasdefeated last win-
l ler In the Legislature. Instead of being
IE " iliscouragcd tliey have tried again, and
It this tliiui their chaHer U reported tavoiu-
a b,y v
f Tho theory these geiitUmeu have pro
Si eeeded on is that tho dangerous classes uro
.ft but the mercHt fiuetton of tho population ;
j f ttuit If rcsiieelnblo peisous take Uttlo In
I "E torest lu local elections, It Is hcciiuso
k hi tliey loo tliat their votes would amount tu
uothlug toward changing a government
' that Is el'icted In fmctlonnl parts; and
:; that the deendeueo of tho Doard of
Aldermen is because It has been
itrlpped of Its powers for tho benefit
ef trrcapotiHlhln commissions. They also
bold that in u. legislative body, to securo
suiUouest majority thero (hould bo n vlg
urou. minority j nnd that thle can only
occur when all Its members aro elected nt
tho sumo tlmo. Then tho majority will
be tho dlrcot representatives of popular
opinion, and the people will noYor fll
at tho next election to hold them ropon
slblo for their nets.
With the present system of electing tho
Aldermen by halvts, there Is Uttlo if any
upposiliuu; both parties unltu lu plunder
ing tho publlo. Abolish that system, nml
tho majority and minority become scpn
nl by Impiitsablo party lines. Tho
minority will critioiso every act of thn
majority; they will question their mo
tives, nnd attack their measures. A
! party thus ofsulled canuot ultord to
', b repiesonted by criminals or rutlliuis;
uor will tho people readily penult
1 themselves to be plunderel n seconil
term by u. oorrupt majority. UlvothoiMio
plo linl power and they will o-xerelso 11 for
their own protection. Uut If 011 tho other
hand their votes inn effect no substantial
change, If all they can do Is to elect 11
fragment of a rotten body, they will enro
Uttlo about an elective franchise that Is
nt tended with no practical results.
Tho proposed charter nbollshes all com
missions and tho Supervisors. Tho Mayor
mid Aldermen go out of ofllco together.
Tho Mayor is vested with suMlelcnt power,
lie appoints f-iid tho Aldermen confirm
nil heads of departments. Ho enn sus
pend any of them nud appoint a successor
id Interim. Uut the Aldermen after hear
ing theelmrges can reinstate. KaohAlder
mnn district is reduced to 1-,000 Inhabi
tants, and each district elect ono Alder
man. Under such a charter It will bo as
great nn honor to be an Alderman as it Is
now to bo the Mayor.
Mr. Anson 1. Pi.r.LM Donor, the Yankee
member of tho Cnnadlnn Parliament from
tho riding of North York, must find his
ofllclnl seat anything but comfortable.
Tho most widely circulated journals In
Canada denounce him us a liar, a hypo
crite, and u foiger; using terms of 10
proach in connection with his naino
enough to make one'a blood run cold If ho
Is not nceustomeil to the vehement meth
ods of expression which pervade political
controveisy in Canada.
Tho Toronto Ulultc, undoubtedly the
most lntlueiitlul newspaper lu tho Domin
ion, continues toiucrt thut it Is prepared
to prove nil Its charges ngulnst Mr. Dodge,
and does not hesitate to o.xpresd tlio belier
that 11 rencgndo who turns nptlnst tho
lnnd ol his birth and holds Its Institutions
up to tho ridicule and contempt of thoso
with whom he has dwelt but A fow months
In order to Ingratiate himself in their eyes,
would bctmy his now country for .1 timber
limit or any other sufllcient bribe. If, as
the Qlolic alleges, Mr. Dodcik did forgo n
letter In which ho was recommended to
tho electors of North York Tor his eminent
Christian virtues nnd pious life, It was cer
tainly very foolish tu linn to address the
letter to tho Itev. Dr. IUmpey as coming
from a mutual friend, when Dr. IUmsev,
ns ho nvers, never saw any such letter, nor
know even of tho existence of tho person
whoso limn wm slgniHl to the document.
nils Is evidently a bad year for Phari
sees It all parts of North America.
So far a PresldentfJitAXT'Indlnn policy

the lawless aggressions of racally whites,
it mu.-t meet 1 1 1 - approbation of all just

From all accounts the frauds In the ad
ministration of Indian nfiali-s wcro never
more tlngraut than they have been dining
the past four years, under tho worklug of
tho President's wonderful peueo policy,
which is professedly founded on tho liasls
of pure philanthropy. Uluukcts weighing
two and a (pjurter pounds each, costing tho
Government 11 pair, while single blan
kets, such as are issued to tho troops, weigh
Ilvo nnd 11 half pounds, and cost only W.O,
furnish an example of tho way lu which
both the Indians nud tho United States uro
swindled by tlio harpies who nro feathering
their nests from tho moneys appropriated
by Congress for currying out tho Presi

whole ones was one of the causes which led
to tho dUgruceful Modoo war; and from
nil tpiertcrs where there nro expenditures
on Indian account wo hear thesnmcstories
of fraud and dl.-honosty.
The Piochu Ihconl of Jan. SO describes a
train of annuity goods which had just ar
rived at that point, and which it says would
not bv accepted by any onobut a wretched
naked Indian us n free gift. Tltu blankets
were made from the very refuse of tho
woollen factory, nud were scarcely elo-e
enough In textuie to hold oats. And with
such trash It Is proposed to swindle tho
Indians lu payment for their lauds, while

of Coiiiniotis, which In different elons hns

the country desires tho paMnco of such a
bill, as tho exNtlna law Is In conflict with
publlo opinion, and, It Is claimed, Is the
canto of a crcat deal ot Immorality. Until
the year ltd tho forking cIakih-s had always

accounts for the pertinacity with which the

In spite of all their prejudices.

Mr. Aldcn II. Stockwcll Is Trcsldent of
the I'aolOc Mall Steamship Company. II Is
likewise tho principal stockholder In tho Howe
Hewing Machine Company, nnd controls tho
policy of that corporation. Ito and his brother
own upward of tin co-fourths of the stock, and
thus wield an Immense power over the fortunes
of tho company.
It being rumored that tho manufactories of
tho llowofcwlng Marhlno Company had been
mortgaged by Mr. Htockwell to the Pacific Mall
Company for $1,1(0,000. n reporter was despatch
ed to Investigate. Tho magnates In Wall street
wcro axcoodtuKly reticent. Some of them de
nied that tho rumor had any foundation, others
had never heard of It, und a few hinted that tho
rumor was true, but refused to give tto report
er any clue by which ho might gain tho whole
story. What he learned In Wall atrset was that
m mortgage of tho llowo Company was given to
tho Pacific Mall on or about tho 4th ot March,
and that It was executed to socuro tho company
for stock advanced to pay Uould by President
It may bo remembered that on Tuesday, tho
4th of March, a special and so ere t meeting ot tho
Directors of Pacific Mall was held lu their ofllces
lu Wall street. Ilrokers and rcMjrtcra tried to
gain Information about tho proceedings of tho
meeting, but tho Directors refused to give any
bint. It was said that tho object ot the meeting
was to Investigate certain official acts of Presi
dent Btockwoll. and tho stock ot tho company
roso about 3 per cent, lu the Kxchange on tho
strength of this rumor. It now turns out that
Mr. Stockwcll at that meeting gave tho corpora
tion twelve ritOMissony Norr.s.
for from ono to twelve montlts, drawn by thn
Howo Sowing Macblnu Company, to tho amount
offl,H0J), nud a mortgage to tint amount of
tho cntlro property ot the company as collateral
" You see," said Ihe only broker who was at
all rommunlratlve, Mr. Utockwell has been a
great loser lu his late slock speculations. Ito
became Indebted over a million dollars to Jay
Gould, and to settle this account ho turned over
to (lotitd stock in tho Pacific Mill and tho rona
nia llallro.vl. Then to secure the company of
n hlch ho Is President he executed this mortgage
on tl.o Howe Machine Company, and It was ac
cepted by tho directors at the famous secret
meeting. This transaction Is balng kept quiet,
as I lieliove. In order that a pool may be formed
In Pacific Mall. You will find that the next pinle
In the Uxchange will lie created by the rapid
rlsoof this stock; audit I am not greatly mis
taken Stockwell will make all he has lost In this
Having sifted Wrll street to his utmost power,
tho reporter went to 11 ridge port to verify or dis
prove tho story of the mortgage. The property
of tho Howo Bowing Machine Company Is situ
ated near tho railroad In Urldgc port, and con
sists of three large brick manufactories nnd

AVasihnotok, Mnrch 2T. Tlio bwl exutn
ample set tho criminal papers ot this city by
President Orant's Hoard of Publlo Works, of
plundering tho people wlthlmpunltynnd setting
law at defiance, Is already beginning to bear lbs
natural fruit, forgery, aa Is now currently re
ported, Is to Iss added to the crimes which haw
under (IranCs Administration, given this dis
trict an unenviable notoriety abroad. Itsccms
to have been the ambition ot this board, com
posod Itself of dosporato men, to draw around It
all tho knaves aud fools Washington has been In
fested with for the last twenty years. The object
of this was painfully obvious to any honest and ,
rlght-thlnklng man. If then this report, which
has been In circulation for sovoraldajs, that for
geries ot "cortlflcalesof Indebtedness" to a very
considerable utuoulit have been discovered,
should turn nut to he true, It will only ben fit
ting senuel Ut the crimes whU'h , hove hern per
petrated by the board Itself ngnlnat tho people
of this city.
The vory largo number of these "cer
tlflcates ot Indebtedness," Issued by tho
board lo contractors aud others, has for soino
time past attracted the nttcntlon of bankers nnd
brokers, mnliv of whom have been doing n largo
mid nctivo business In these securities. It Issnld
that moro than two millions of dollars worth of
theso securities have been put afloat ill tills city
within tlio last three months, a considerable
number of which nre bogus. A very latgc,
amount of thee certificates have been putchaed
by middlemen at fifteen, twentr, nnd as high its
thlrtv per rrnt. discount, nnd aro now held by
the .Metropolitan nnd Pirst .National banks, and
the Freedtiitin's Savings mid Trust Company.
The peculiar conditions and rato of discount
under which they came Into tho possession of
theso bunks Is not publicly known. The moro
cautious bankers, such ns Lewis Johnson & Co.
and Hlggs & Co., have always distrusted these
serurlllts, and Indeed would not touch theni
with a ten-foot polo. These bunkers hnvo eon
tended that they wero Irregular, and Issued tn
drllance of Inw. Hut It must bo remembered
that nearly everything tho Hoard of Public
Works li.n dono has beon lu defiance of law. In
truth. It has been the boast of Shephard. tho
Vlcr-Prrsblent of the bonnl. that he "could do
as ho d d pleased," antl that bo has done as hr
"dd pleased." and with the sanction of Iho
President of the Culled States, who has looked
on and smnkml his cigar, has been too painfully
apparent lo tho people who hava to pay for It.
liisnumi.NO tiik rum.ic rvsn.
In regard to theso eertlflratcs of Indebtedness
It seems tliey nro not certified to by eltlicr of tho
regularly authoilzcd accounting utile jrs of the
District (liivcnunent- tho Auditor 'nd Comp
troller. These officers, both gentlemen of wall
known Integrity, seeing how recklessly accounts
for work und material were being brought In nnd
tho public funds disbursed, refused positively to
certify many uf tlio accounts, mid for Just and
sufficient reasons. They were In several rasci
railed to pass upon accounts for work which
they had proof lu their possession had not been
done. Thereupon the tiourd appointed on
auditor and romptrollrrof Its onu. Just as it had
brfore apjKilnted ono of Its own members
treasurer. Kow all theso ofllces are Illegal and
unknown to the law. Tho men selected
tor these important ouiccs ny tuo uoaru
wrro Its most subservient tools, obscure
persons, unknown to the people of this
District. In tilts way, tlio tmard set Itself
above and lndeiendentof all legalized authority,
held Itself responsible to no ono, and udontlng
the principle of the highwaymen who had se
cured the plunder, claimed the right to do
with It as they pleased. Having plundered and
oppressed the people of this District until there
was nothing more lo plunder: nud having plun
dered the Trrasurv of Ihe United States of more
than four millions of dollars, and that with tho
aid of the Porty-sccond Congress, they stub
bornly refuse to glvo an account of what tbey
have done with tho money. Tncy have set up
n system of thnlr own, on the highwaymen's
model, and set Justice and public opinion at do
llanco. If tills is not u personal, frresponitlilo
government, a monar by of the very worst ktnd,
under the vrn shadow of Iho dome of tn Capi
tol, I should lll.o to know what It is.
LOOSE ASD HL'CKLESS.
If theso things can ho done, ami the President
looks on and sanctions them. Is It any wondor
that forgeries should lie committed, and that
the criminal claused should Slid an excuse for
their acts In the Immunity given tn those III
authority to commit crimen of much greater
magnitude? In speaking to one of our leading
bankers this morning about tho repeated forge
ries of these certificates of Indebtedness, he
said nothing was more easy, and be had only
been surprised that It bnitnot been done before,
considering ibo lore and very reckless manner
in which the Hoard uf Publlo Works had eon
dueled all Its liusinens. Thai eiiminsls short er
than themselves should luko advantage of It
was not surprising. It Is Usu rcporlcil that n
considerable number of theao certificates have
been negotiated lu New Yotk and Philadelphia.
If this lie true the holders haU better look to
