I'he Crowinhg Act of Inufiamy.
It is conceded by every honest inan
that th, bill recently pas!.ed thro' the
lower branch of the Legislature, l,
galizing the bond frando, is the miost
iifaious an ci d dialaical act of legisl a
tion that has yet been inflicted lkion
this State by public thieves and plun
deiers, styling themselves legislators.
It is openly assertd and utlieved
that a large amount of money was
used by the Financial Board to secure
the passage of this bill, nd crtain I
circumnstanoes, that we will re call, goI
to show that improper influene of'
some kind was exerted over a mnajority
of the nmembere. It will be renmem
bered that early ini the present ses
sicsn a committee, with Ilowyen as its
chiairmian, reported an over -issue o
bonds to the extent of upwar da of six
millions of dollars, and eomimended
that prooedings he instituted against
the pat ties responsible therefor. This
report was concurt-od 'in by nearly a
hvo thaird/s mnajority of thle Ilouse.
This is a matter of record. Nowv in
the face of this, a bill is introdnteedl
and pa.ssed v'al idati ng and legalizing
Lthis over-issure, and throwing around
the Financial Bloard immunity from
prosecution and punnishment. If that
Board committed no fraud, why the
necessity for legalizing their acts?
It is a pelain admisin that bond~s
were issued without authority of law
and through fraudulent insti-utihen
The perpetrators of those frauds
ought now to he in the Penitentiary,
and if justice was properly' meted out,
they would be there. Instead, how
ever, we witness the sight, unparat
