nigh, he sat hlmsell down with his law

which ho parceled out such portions of
his worldly goods as he felt it incum
bent upon himself fo leave to a ragtag
and bobtail element of his relatives, and
then dropped the balance all out to his
dear nephew, Kutherlord Birchard
Hayes, the residuary legatee. It was ol
course, a irreat piece of cood luck, over
which he was privately congratulated,
and concerning which he uo doubt felt
pertect thrills of delight w lieu he con

never definitely known by the people

tradition that it crowded hard upon the

hereunto alii led the seal of said court at
Fremont, in said county, this 2lUh day ol
January, 174. F. Willmeh, Judge.
A careful perusal of the above docu
ment will satisfy the reader that the be
hest to parties other than Gov. Hayes
are sieclhYally stated as so much money,
so many dollars. The will does not say
that such and such amount must be paid
w hen such and such or any parcel otland
Is sold and enough money Is realized to
meet the obligation. Gov. Hayes say it
waa Intended they should be paid ot the
funds raised by the sale of lands. Sardis
Birchard ought to have so worded his
will. "Why," said a leading citizen to
me to-day. "It is just as plain at the
nose on uiy face that the bequests were
to be made in money." The reader will
joe that the presumption is that Birchard
had more than hU $9,000 in
MONET o basd,
and that Ilsyc' 1,000 return Is a paltry
anbterfnge. Another point come to
light to-day iu connection with Hayes'
executorship ot his uncle's estate. ' By
the will it is made obligatory that the
bequests Ih paid in three years nnd Inter
est hi three year. The law provides
that an executor shall account for his
trust to the probate judge within n speci
fied time, asset forth in the letter testa
mentary above. Judge F. Williucr, of
this county, tells me that Hayes 1ms
never rendered i
AX All Ol NT or 1IIS STHWAIIDHIUP,
n he ouht to have done. By the pro
visions of this will. Hayes came into the
possession ot all the personal and mixed
property, etc., of the deceased. It is a
well-known (act that Sardis Bireluird en
joyed the advantages to be derived from
a "large! collection id painting. These
were his hobby, and he would talk about
them to his neighbors, and tell of this
and that one which cost him $500 each,
yet In 1S72 Biichard swore that he had
only $700 worth of household goods, jew
els," plate and other articles, lueliidinghls
picture-gallery. The next year it was
$1100. When Hayes got hold of them
they, together with the few trips he
brought up from Cincinnati, were worth
only $1,000. Last year they were worth
$4,000 more, because he had purchased
books, anil this year he lists them at
$4,500. Then there Is Surd is Birchard's
diamond. He himself liiiled to consider
it of any value, as it cuts no figure in his
tax records, snd Gov. Hayes overlooks
It entirely, and has done so ever since be
became its possessor. Son e time before
Sardis Birchard's death, he planed the
A l l lll.IC I.IHR.tRY,
and finally set opart $50,000 lor that pur
pose. The project was to purchase a
piece of land in the henrt of the city known
asthe Fort Stevenson property, and there
erect eventunlly a public building, the
city to enter into the scheme, put up its
city hall, anil the Birchard library to be
associated 111 the purchase. The price
for the land was about 28.000. or this
amount the city guaranteed $22,000 in
bonds and the balance, $i,000, was sub
scribed by the trustees of the Birchard
fund, to be taken out of the $50,000 that
Sardis Birchard bad set aiile. Now Gov.
Haves says most positively that the $!t,!ts2
returned by Bireluird In 1873 was
by the obligations incurred by hlmsell
iu carrying out Birchard's projects for
the benefit ot Fremont, and that he him
self gave $10,000 more property and in
curred obligations for the amount in the
purchase of Fort Stevenson. It will pay
to look at the record. At a meeting of
the city council of Freinont.Oct.fi, 173,
which was before the death of Sardis
Birchard. the following coinmuiiicatioH
was read by the clerk: "
Fkemoxt, Oct. 1, ls.73-IIon.E. F. Dick
inson. Mayor of Fremont Sir : Inclosed
please find $0,000 in promissory notes,
to be used by the city of Fremont in
the purchase of the square in said city
known as the Fort Stevenson property.
This is done on behalf of the trustees of
the Birchard library in accordance with
a proposition made" by said trustees to
the city council of said city iu relation
to the purchase; ot said properly for a
park and fr the site of the Birchard
library. Very respectfully,
R. B. Hayks.
If the people of Fremont are to be be
lieved, indeed they ought to know some
thing about their own municipal atl iirs.
this is the only money ever paid by R. B.
Hayes for the Fort Stevenson improve
ment project, and this did not come
from him. It was from the Birchard li
brary reserve, and was made to the city
of Fremont about throe months before
Sadis ;Birchard died, and Hayes had not
paid a penny for himself. It will bo
necessary to find some other channel In
which to say the income of the Birchard
estate has run away and honestly escape
the tax assessor. In the years 1874,
1S75, and 1S70, R. B. Hayes
TOOK IIIS OATH
that he had no credits, and yet 1 showed
by the records on yesterday that he had
in his possession between $7,000 ami
$8,(ioo worth of mortgages during these
years. How many more credits of simi
lar character there were and which he
ought to have scheduled and paid his
honest taxes on cannot be fully ascer
tained. Sardis Birchard had a peculiar way of
doing business. When he sold a piece
ot land he seldom gave a deed and took a
mortgage to cover the notes. It was his
custom to draw up a contract to give a
deed when the contract, should have been
fulfilled. It is presumed there were

a "mortgage witnessed by R. W. B. Mc
Clelland and W. II. Andrews uml ac
knowledged before Mc lellnnd. a notary,
and recorded 011 page KiO, of volume is,
of the records of Sandusky county,
by W. M. Htlne, recorder. There were
$1,225 unsiitislicd on this mortgage when
R. B. Hayes got it. and yet he golcmlv
swears he has no credits.
The Republican lind it necessary to
some measures to attempt the refutation
of these damaging talemeiits against
Gov. Hayes. The party organ hereto
A I.K.NOT1IV !Kt'KN K
written by a lawyer who indulges iu the
most specious of pleadings to account for
the discrepancy in Birchard's $!),000
inonay return in ls3. If Is averred that
there is a ini.-tiike iu the recorder's books.
There is no mistake. He had that
amount of money according to his sw orn
statement. It fell to his nephew and he
swears he did not have it. The Republi
can paper says the mistake was probably
made in transcribing. In the number ol
watches Hayes had there was no mistake.
Hayes listed his pro)erty himself and
swore to it. The man who
SOI H HAYKS THE I'lAXO
Comes out with an nlhMavit saying the
sale was made after the listing was done
for ls70. and that Hayes never had a
piano before that. The people of Fre
mont say he did. The same paper
charges that the Democrats have carried
the records away from the auditor's of
fice here 1 1 prevent Hayes' friends pro
ing the falsity of these charges against
him. Not a document has been taken
away. Everything is open to Inspci tion.
It Will beseen :
1. That Hayes has disobeyed the law
in not accounting for the executorship
Imposed upon biui in behalf of the other
heirs ol Sardis Birchard.
2. That there is nothing in the will to
show that the provision for the bequests
was not in cash some thirty odd thousand
3. That Hayes came Into possession
of all of Birchard's personal property, in
cluding paintings, reported worth over
$r,XK), and a diamond worth $1,500, and
yet he swears his household goods were
not worth more than $1,000.
4. That Hayes never paid anything
personally toward the lort Stevenson
purchase, and therefore could not have
used up Birchanl's $!i,000 cash for that
5. That Hayes had about $11,000 In
known credits in mortgages in 1874, Is75
and ls70. and yet swears thai he did not.
fi. The whole matter is flat perjury
and a disreputable method for the Cdris
tion governor and model candidate to
evade the payment of taxes.
