The Arms Swindle.
We print to-day the history give a by the
Joint Investigating Committee, in their re?
port, of the Biog swindles in ennection
with the enrolment and organizati >n o? the
militia, and the employment of an armed
force "for the preservation of the p? ace."
The State was profoundly tranqui , but by
Joint Resolutions of the General A, sembly,
under date of February 8 and March 15, 1869,
Governor Scott was authorized "to employ
"an armed force (of one hundred meo or
"more) for the preservation of the peace,"
and "to purchase two thousand stand of
"arms of the most improved pattern; pro?
vided that a serviceable and satisfactory
"arm cannot be procured from the United
"States." The Adjutant-General o? the
State, Speaker F. J. Moses, obtained without
difficulty from the Secretary of War, General
Rawlins, ten thousand Springfield rifles as a
gift to the State. There was, the efore, no
necessity nor authority for purchasing the
two thousand stands of arms contemplated
by the Joint Resolution of March 16, 1869;
but one thousand Winchester rifles were or?
dered to be bought, and the ten thousand
Springfield rifles, as soon as delivered, were
sent to the North to be converted into
breech-loaders. The entire cost of the or?
ganization of the militia, and of the purchase
and alteration of arms, is given, by the com?
mittee, as follows :
EurolmenL^and organization of the
Expenses of thc armed force for the
presentation, or the peace... j-. 23,747
OflEQ THO TIS ti 11 t?" i LI uti wt (J i-rltfrtr Wi QT * ~~" ' '
Adjutant-General's Department. 13,000
State Constabulary. 33,463
Alteration of ten thousand Spring fled
muskets and ammunition. 202,002
This amount, as shown by the committee,
is equal to a capitation tax of S2 75 upon
the whole voting population of the Stale.
There was no earthly authority for the ex?
penditure of this vast sum. Where did the
money go tor The Joint Committee say
that the large sums, charged as militia ex?
penses, were used in paying the expenses of
the friends and hired advocates of Governor
Scott, to secure whose re-election, in 1870,
about one hundred thousand dollars of the
State funds are believed to have been em?
Bat the most glaring robbery is detected
by the committee in the job of converting
the ten thousand Springfield muskets into
-breech-loader^ The muskets were thor?
oughly serviceable, and the only object in
converting them was to give Governor
Scott, Treasurer Parker and Speaker Moses
what they call "commissions," but which we
call "stolen moneys of the State." Con?
tracts were made with the Roberts Breech
loading Arms Company for the conversion
o'five thousand muskets, at SS 85 each, and
and with the Remington Arms Company for
the conversion of the remaining five thou?
sand muskets at $9 each; also, with the
American Metallic Ammunition Company
for one million cartridges at $37 a thousand.
The amount of the three contracts was :
Roberts Arms Company.$ 44,250
Remington Arms Company. 43,000
Metallic Ammunition Company. 37,000
But the amount charged was $202,602.
What became of the difference of $76,000, if
we may assume that the sums contracted
for were really paid? The committee can
only say that they are assured that $20,000
of the plunder was paid to Treasurer Parker.
The committee, however, print allidavits
showing that a commission of $76,000, upon
a nominal outlay of $202,000, did not satisfy
the rapacity of the Ring.
Mr. Isaiah Woodbury, of No. 48 Broadway,
New York, who was, at different times, the
Treasurer of the Roberts Arms Company
and of the American Ammunition Company,
sw?ars that his company were furnishing |
cartridges to oiher parlies at $31 a thousand
at the time it was agreed to supply Scott,
Moses & Co. at $37 a thousand ; that the
Roberts Arms Company gave receipts for
$44,250, while they only received $2500;
that the American Ammunition Company
gave receipts for $37,150, while they only re?
ceived $21,817; that the actual work of con?
verting the arras was to be done by the
Providence Tool Company, who were to be
paid $6 a gun. The further statements of
the Joint Committee enable us to gauge the
plundering. For the work done by the
Roberts Arms Company there was nomi?
nally paid $8 85 a gun, but the amount
actually paid was $6 50 a gun, viz: 50
cents to the Rober;8 Arm Company and $6
to the Providence Tool Company. For the
work done by the Remington Arms Com?
pany the price nominally paid was $9 a gun,
bat the price actually paid, taking the other
payments cs a ?aide, did not exceed $6 a j
gan. The commissions demanded cf the
American Ammunition Company were $13,
872. These give the following result :
Stealage of $2 35 upon 5000 guns of
Roberts Arms Company.$ 11,750
Stealage of $3 upon 5000 guns ol
Remington Arms Compauy. 15,000
Commissions on one million cart
lidges..'. ...^. 13,172
Stealage as commission?.$ 39.922
Add difference between nominal
amount of contracts ($120,000) and
amount charged the State ($202,
602) lor tbe conversion of arms . 76,000
TOTAL STEALAGE UPON $202.602. .$115,92?
We charge, therefore, that Governor Scott,
Treasurer Parker and Speaker Moses, in the
so-called conversion of arms, swindled the
State out of S115.922; and that Governor
Scott, os principal, and Speaker and Adju?
tant-General Moses, a3 accomplice, swindled
the people by diverting to electioneering pur?
poses the public funds of the State.

ance, to eradicate ana prevent dandruff, to pro?
mote the growth of the hair and stop its fail rig
out It is entirely harmless, and perfectly free
from any poisonous substance, and will therefore
take the puce of all the dirty and unpleasant
preparations now tn use. Numerous testimonia s
have been sent us from many of our most promi?
nent citizens, some of which are subjoined. In
everything In which the articles now In use are
objectionable, CRYSTAL DISCOVERY is perfect
lt is warranted to contain neither Sugar of Lead,
Suiphnr or Nitrate or Silver, lt does not soil tit
clothes or scalp, ls agreeably perfumed, and
makes one of the b:st dressings for the Hair in
use. It restores the color or the Hair "more per?
fect and uniformly than any other preparation,"
and always dees so ia rrom t'.ree to ten days,
virtually feeding the roots of the Hair with all
the nourishing qualities necessary to its g-owth
and healthy condition; it restores the decayed
and induces a new growth or the Hair more post
tlvely than anything else. The application of
this won terful discovery also produces a pleasant
an t cooling effect on th? scalp and gives the Hair
a pleasing and elegant appearance.
We call especial attention to the fact that a
limited number of trial bottles will be given way
gratuitously to those wishing to try lt. You will
