Governor Seay's inauguration was
about as Jeffarsonian as could be. A
short speech by ex-Governor O'Neal,
Governor Seay's inaugural address
and the administration of the oath by
Chief Justice Stone, were all there
was of it. The speech of the new
Governor is universally commended
for force and finish, but more than
anything else for bold and positive
treatment of the live issues. The Gov
ernor declared himself in favor of
road tax to be authorized by the con
stitution, of enlargement of legal
nguis oi married women, of the per-
petuation of the present system of
massing convicts, of a change from
the lee system to the salary system in
paying solicitors, of liberal measures
on the part ot theJNational Govern
ment in aid of education. Special
emphasis was laid on the last men
tioned matter. The Governor thought
the State appropriation for the Con
federate monument ought to wait un

An interesting real estate transfer
took place in this city today, the prop

river plantation situated about twelve
miles from here and known as the
Tom Scott plantation. It embraces
about 8000 acres, and was entered

of this State, away back in the
thirties, bat afterwards naaaed

son of an honored sire, and lastly was
purchased by J. T. Brown, jr., who is
at present serving a ten years' sen
tence in the Detroit House of

water power was far from satiefactorv
for most of them. Few got out flour
without steam. Theou'putwas 103.
950 barrels, averaging 17,320 barrels
daily, against 81,570 barrels the pre
ceding week, and 73,870 barrels the
corresponding time in 1885. This
week the power is poor, but by the
use of steam the product will overran
100,000 barrels. Eighteen mills are
running, six partly or wholly, by
Bteam. Those depending on water
power were not able to get
oat over half the usual output.
They have asked for an arrange
ment by which water will be more
equally divided. A meeting will be
held tomorrow afternoon to form
pool to regulate the operations of the
mills. a The water power company has

Unable to restrain himself longer,
Doc Wilson this morning, b okrn
down in health and weeping like a
child, told the great eecrt ah ich ex
isted between him and P. L. Moen, of
Worcester, so many years. The story
was told in the pnsence of four re
putable citizens, who furnished it to
the press. "I am looked upon as a
blackmailer," he eaid; "arid those who
believe I have been bleeding tbat old
man hold'me in as much contempt
as a yellow dog, but I will stand it no
longer. I am more sinned aeaiost
than sinning, and now tha truth shall
be known. My name Is not Wi son,
nor am I a son of Jonts Wilson. My
father ia the man who ia aocusing me
of blackmail, and his noma is Lsvi
Moen, lawful sen of P. L. Moen, of
Worcester. Wilson then went on
to tell the itry of his birth,
and the wrong done him by his
father. His story is, be is a son of
Moen's first wife. That ha via born
few months after the marririre.
Moen being a deacon and a profess
edly high toned Obiistian, did not
wish to face the scandal of
such an tarly biith for his first
born. So a bargain was made
with Jonas Wileon, of DaMoIeville,
Conn., a staire driver, bv which tha
babe was transferred to the letter's
care and bronght np es Wileon. The
boy lived and toiled in an humble
sphere, to which he says Moen con
signed him, and it waa not until
be wa a young man grown that he
learned the secret of his birth. For
that secret be is iudebted
to the religious remorse of
his supposed father. Jonas Wilton,
who, being on his death bed and not
caring to pass the poi tals with tbe bur
den on his soul, drew the lad toward
him and told him who be was. After
Wilson died the young fellow set off
for Worcester to meet his father face
to face. Their first meeticg Wilson
says was exactly as bas been
described. He did not meet Moen
tbat morning, and after observing
signs of wealth and luxury that
abounded, he demanded of Moen
some reparation for the wrong done
one who should be heir to all. Moen
at first refused to acknowledge the
low stage driver, but the boy faced his
millionaire parent defiantly, upbraid
ing him for tbe wrong done his
mother and himself. He raid. ' I will
force you to acknowledge me, and the
world snail know you lor what you
are." Then, "D -c" says, the banker
deacon became alarmed and save bim
$100. By appointment be met Moen
the next day and consented to shield
his father from sbame. The father
had in the meantime married again,
after the death of "Doc's" mother,
and married into a family
which wou'd have scorned Moen. had
they known of the ecandal. Then.ac
cording to Wilson's story, Wilson, who
anew tne secret ot his parentage,
seeing Doo had money, aad kaoains
it came from Moen. bfean to one bia
olaims upon him. Their demands In
creased, and to satisfy them tie
had to apply to Moen for money,
and in that way much of the
sum received from the banker was
spent. Wileon says these demands
upon him grew so exorbitant tbat be
was a'moet impoverished' by them.
Tbe Engley suits were settled, he
Slid, at Moen's suggestion and with
Moen's money, became tbe latter
feared his relationship to Wilson
would come out some way in
the trial. Wilson has lette.s which
he Buys were written by Moen, ac
knowledging hs relationship and call
ing him dear ton. Those latere Wil
son produced today. He says he is an
injured one as, instead of being reared
as a gentleman, bronght up an id all
tbe luxuries which his fathers wealth
could purchase, he was cast adrift on
the world without education, without
refinements of life which would have
been his had his cruel parent done
right. Wilson says he can no loniier
eudure the calumnies with which he
is asaailed, and that his confes ion of
the secret is true in every respect.
