Read Mr. Arnold'a card on the sec;
ond page of to-day's paper. It has been
told for a long time, and pretty general
ly believed, that Mr. Arnold, as County
Commissioner, voted to give up to the
company the railroad bonds held by the
county ; but the facts are that he had
nothing to do with the surrendering of
those bonds, his term of office having ex
pired several months before that act was
consummated. At that time the Coun
ty Board was as follows: Z. J. Wisncr,
Deer Creek; D. Horville, Iola; Peter
Long, Humboldt. At the time the bonds
were given up we understand that it was
the wish of a large majority of the peo
ple of the county that it should be done.
