The site selected for operation was on the uld
Ktllen farm In the southwest part of the city.
Tne work was prosecuted vigorously and a
hols sunk about 600 feet, which passed
through some three different veins or coal,
averaging from eighteen to thirty-four Inches
In thickness. In addition to these veins ol
coal a body or saline water, sufficiently
strong for manufacturing salt, and a vein of
natural gas, rewarded the company for their
expenditure, Since then large quantities ;ot
this gaa baa been constantly escaping from

The apparent Republican majority for
members of the Legislature was obtained
by wholesale systematic bribery .bull-dozing
and sfraud. The was a popular major
ity for Governor in opposition to the Re
publicans in many districts, giving Fusion
a majority for Governor. The Republi
cans succeeded in getting a majority for
members of the Legislature, by trickery and
other frauds. The Governor and Council
have not based their action on these frauds
in any instance, not having jurisdiction,
but they have strictly followed the consti
tution and thrown out such returns as were
fatally detective, whether Republican or
Democratic lu some counties more Demo
cratic than Republican returns have been
Republicans have been in the habit for
years of secretly returning defective Re
publican returns to town officers for correction,-
but took advantage of defects in
Democratic returns. Daring twenty-three
years of Republican rule, they have never
loet an officer by such defects, while Demo
crats have lot more or less nearly every
year. This has served to make Democratic
town officers more careful, and Republican
more careless. The prevent Governor and
Council have held Republicans to the strict
letter of the constitution and laws, and the
result is an anti-Republican majority in
both branches. They have in no case
travel outside of precedents established
by Republicans themselves, and in most
caes their action wasbasid on opinions
given by Judges of the Supreme Court
For ihjtance: A Judge gave an opinion in
1875 that the Governor and Council could
not count the votes returned for Wm. H.
Smith and W. H. Smith for the satce
office, as having been given for cce and the
same person. Applying thii rc'p this year
changes the result in a large nutaber of
In 1877 the judges gave an opinion that
returns could not be counted where the
signatures of the officers Were written by
other hands than their own. Several cases
of this class were fquiid thii year In the
same opinion the judges decided that re
turns cotild not be counted where the town
clerk had failed to attest them This rule
change ecveral cases also. Returns from
the city of Portland waa fatally defective,
in not complying with the cbnptitntion in
giving names of persons voted for, with
thu number of votes against each name.
Some 140 votes were returned as scattering.
This changes the result on three senators
and leaves five vacancies in the House. In
Lewiaton and Saco both, and RockHnd,
the returns were signed by a majority only
of the aldermen. The law rt quires the
whole number of ballots to bo given in the
return, and there are abundant Republi
can precedents for reject ng them where
they fail in that respect. So, too, where
there is a material difference between the
whole nunibe- of ballots and voets. It is
stated that several changes have resulted
from thes" defects. In all doubtful cases
the Governor and Council have consulted
eminent counsel before coming to a con
clusion, and in every instance the action
cf the board has been unanimous, with one
exception' only. In that instance the
iuetion at is'ue did not affect the charac
ter of the result. . ;
