THE VINTON RECORD.
McARIllUR. OHIO,
THURSDAY. MAY 8. 1873
Louis Eymajt, a ion of Dr.
Ejman, of Cincinnati, who has
been in attendance at St. Ma
ry'a Inititnte, Dayton, wai
kicked ontil bii leg wai broken
and otherwise ill treated by 'a
pneit at the Institute, until
hit life ii deipaired of. Through
the influence of the priest he
told his father that his leg was
broken while playing foot ball,
nd it was only when hope of
recorery was passed that he
felt far enough removed from
the priest to tell the truth.
These facts came to light last
week, and now comes Mr.
Bing, of Sandusky, who states
that his son Henry Biug, a lad
of fourteen years of age, was
reported misting from the in
stitute on the 10th of Maroh.
He was not informed of the
departure ot his son promptly,
and when he called at the In
stitute and asked to see his
boy's trunk in order to see
what suit he wore away, they
refused on the ground that th
priest in charge oi the ward
rob was not present Mr. Bing
has not yet heard anything
whatever from his son, and be
exnresses a determination to
make a thorough investigation
of the workings of the insti
tute.
A Suggestion.
The Cincinnati Gazette of
Wednesday contains the fol
lowing:
"CHILLICOTHE, April 28.
I see that various papers in
the State are suggesting vari
ous names (or the position of
chairman of the Constitutional
Convention. It can do uo
harm for me to suggest that
of Milton L. Clark the member
elect from this county, as
man suitable in every respect
for the position. Free from
the partisan prejudices of pol
iticians, elected on an in
dependent ticket, a man of
if rge intellect, comprehensive
views, and a thorough know!
edge of parliamentary rulings,
and the general requirements
of the State, bis elevation to
the place would, I am sure, re
fleet credit on his fellow mem
bers, and insure the rapid and
thorough transaction of al
business brought before the
convention.
Apropros to this, I might
mention the fact that, in case
the convention adjourns from
Columbus, Chillicothe is an as
spirant for the honor of being
eelected as the place for its
sittings."
Elsewhere we publish a let
ter from CapL Wilson on the
salary question in reply
some strictures upon the same
subject in the Jackson Stand
ard. We will be likely to have
some 'randoms thoughts' in re
ply. Be it said to Capt. Wil
son's credit that he honestly
voted against not only the
back salary bill in every shape
in which it was presented, but
against all bills for increasing
the salaries of public officers
which, have been considered
during his term of office. Hav
iog done his duty in this re
aped we fail to' see why
blame should be cast upon
him ior making the only legal
settlement he -could make
with the government.
Thk books of the Treasury
Department show a reduction
of the public debt during the
month of April of $2,247,485 60.
The total reduction since the
1st of March,1869, is $368,082,
89 48. Daring the same pe
riod the -British national debt
has been reduced but about
one-fourth that amount, a lit
tle over $98,000,000, while at
the same time the receipts of
tne English government have
been almost twice as great as
the receipts of our own govern
ment Thus it appears' that
the governmental expenses in
that country are twice as great
as In para. - .

A Letter from Hon. John T.
Wilson.
TRANQILLITY, OHIO, April 26, 1873.
D. Micilit , Etq. 8ib: Hitherto
I have uot (itemed it proper in a
tingle instance to reply to a newtpaptr
attack from any quarter howeer
aeorriloat it might bt. But hating
lately eeaaed to It a Mrrtnt, I now
claim to bo one of tho aorereiga peo
ple postesting righta in common with
other, lleuce a few words in self de
fense mat not be inappropriate. ' Your
attacks upon ma io erery number of
your paper for the hut six weeks, to
say nothing of former years, have been
so marked, and to grossly personal
that I doubt if anr one Lit failed to
see that tome pent up and private
grief has long been rankling io your
heart, awaiting tome pretext to omen
forth in a torrent of ihmy abase, ana
joa seem determined to persist in ma
liraing mo in each successive issue
forgetting the adage that "those who
lire in glass houses ought not to throw
e . a
stones." The passage of toe late Jaw
increasing talariet affords a tubject for
just critioism by the press and tho peo
ple. But when a journalist fails t to
critioise in chaste and general terms,
nnd resorts to the vocabulary of the
fUh market for terms to apply to
single individual, be only gives en
denoe of deep depravity and a desire
to make an ast of himself, In the
Standard of last week you commence
an article as follows. "We have been
reluctantly forced to the conclusion
that the late member of Congress from
this district has received and appropri
ated hit share of the people's money,
which was stolen from the public
treasury. This tentenoe embraces
the question involved and will be re
plied to. The remainder of the artiole
as well at tome preceding onet savor
so strongly of falsehood and billings
gate, not to eay blackguardism, tbat
1 can not allow myself to reply at
length, as I never bandy words with
"fish women." If you really ' desired
to know whether or not I had received
any pay beyond tbat allowed by tne
act of 1866, why did you not address
me a note of inquiry, as you have often
done on matters relating to business or
politics, and you would have been
promptly advised. But your objects
and aims, were altogether in another
direction, at I shall presently show. In
order that you may have a dittinct tar
get for your pop-gun exercises in fu
ture, I will state tbat I did not take
tlolen money from the Treasury, as
you allege, but I did take f 4,496 allow
ed me by law at back pay and in this
I aoted prcoisely as my predecessors
in seven different Congresses had done
before me, none of whom so far at I
know, were ever accused of stealing,
that epithet having been reserved
seemingly, for the use of the Editor
of the Standard. And just here, it
may be well to inquire whether the
late act increasing salaries is an in
fraction of the organic law of the
land, or a departure in its retroactive
feature, from the uniform practice
since the foundation of the Govern
ment The Constitution declares that
"Senators and Representatives shall
receive a compensation to be ascer
tained by law, and paid out of the
Treasury of the United States," and
in pursuance of this olause the several
acts increasing salaries have been ap
proved. Without going back further
than 1818 it will be found that in Jan
uary of that year, ao act was approved
providing that the pay of members
should be $8.00 per day and $8.00 for
orery twenty miles of travel to and
from the Capital which was forty ctntt
per mile both ways; thus giving mem
bers from tht South and Weal a de
cided advantage, and if the law exist
ed now, the mileage alone of members
from the Paoiflo States would be large
ly more than their present salaries,
$7,500. This law not only increased
salaries but like all others on the same
subject, wai retroactive, running back
to March 4, 1817. In 1856 an act was
approved Increasing salaries to $3,000
per annum, leaving the mileage olause
at before. Thie act applied to the
Congress which passed it. On July
28, 1866, an act was approved increas
ing salaries to $5,000 per annum to be
computed from the first day of the
then existing .Congreast which was
March 4, 1865, nearly a year and a
half back, and . twenty cents per mile
ior travel, being one-half of the for
mer rate, but. excepting from this re
dectionof mileage, the tecounti which
had already accrued. Hence it will be
teen that members of the 39th Con
gress by virtue of this act received in
addition to $5,000 per annum mileage
for the first session at the rate of forty
cents per milo, making an aggregate
sum which approximates the present
salary of $7,500 under the' late law,
which cuts off all mileage and station
ery allowances, and I may eay in this
connection tbat each of the preceding
Congresses that considerably increased
the pay of their members deferred it
until the laet session. Bnt according
to the Standard all these men (and
they are many, embracing some of the
purest and best of our statesmen) were
thieves and robbert.
I submit, therefore, whether it is
not better to examiie thie whole ques
tion io the light ahed upon it by the
constitution and legislative precedents
before proceeding to characterise eith
er individual members or an entire
Congress at a pack of theWes. Much
as I was opposed to the meaeare it it a
law of the land, passed by a majority
of the people's , RepcMnteties in the
wtreiia of kgitJatixs, powtrt and.
must remain until it can be repealed.
Tour "stop thief ories, however grat-
fying they may be to yourself, will
probably not convince your readers
that yon either know or care much
about the subject further than to grat
ify your own private feelings.
Men of braint toldom misrepresent
questions at issue, while the weak and
feeble often do, in order to oover their
imbecility." When the people find
time to examine the salary question I
have no doubt their verdict will be
against the inorease. But at the same
time they will find that the present
salaries of members of Congrrtt with
out mileage or stationary allowances
does rot amount in the aggregate to a
sum largely in advance of the former
rates and they will further find that
the pretext for increasing the salaries
of tht President, Vice Presllent,
Judges of the 8upreme Court, Cabi
net officert and their asBiatanta, to
gether with officers and clerks of the
Sonate and House, was even more
flimsy thsn that nrged for the inorease
of the salaries of Senators and Repre
sentatives, and that the inorease all
told does not amount to more than
about three quarters of one million
dollars per annum, whioh will not be
likely io cripple a nation much whose
people have been able to pay into the
publio Treasury annually for eight or
ten years past, an average of more
than four hundred million dollars, and
still art, tht mott prosperous people
upon the globe.
But, sir, the salary question, at
havn estimated, is not what troubles
you; one or two little matters ot
personal and private nature to whioh
I shall allude, make up the fruitf I
source of all your spleen. You know
perfeotly, thai I uniformly voted
against the salary bill, but in your es
timation, that goes for nothing, simply
because I obeyed tho law after it was
passed and took the taok pay. When
I left Washington, I had not heard of
a single man who had rnfused to re
ceive his back pay, and I did not sup
pose my constituents desired me to be
more liberal in that regard than other
membors. No one, so far as I know
has complained except yourself, and
and judging from the past I have no
doubt a little of the Oakes Ames med
icine administered in time would hare
set you all right If you had said,
took what lawfully belonged to me.
you would have told the truth; but
you are not in the habit of telling the
truth, where a party is concerned
against whom you have a private pique,
and for want of brains to look up
facts and argue points, you descend to
the lowest and meanest ribaldry.
In a recent paragraph you referred
to the seat of my pantt with an air
and In language adapted paly to.he
meanest and lowtbt haunts tf vice,
and yet you claim to be respectable,
and expect decent men, and refined
ladies to read your paper. To reply
In merited terms would only tnd to
bring me on a level with a loath
some creature, hence I refrain. You
commenced a series ot misrepresen
tations prior to my nomination in
1870, and after I had been nominated
despite your opposition you wrote me
a letter saying "you honestly believed
the contest would be a doubtful o&,
not only in your county, but alto in
the district; that your paper bad the
largest circulation it ever had and
much influence; that you had never
held but one small office, and that If
would give you riva hundred dol
lars, you would go into the fight in
good faith." You "did not want me
totbink you wero trying to extort
money from me; you would just as
soon rest during the campaign as
not." After reading your letter cov
ering three pages and involving
names which I do not care to bring
Into this controversy, I came to the
conclusiou that you belonged to the
slimy tribe and have had no occasion
to change my mind since. Of course
I modestly declined to accept your
proposal, and there ti e trouble com
menced. If I had submitted to this
black mailing operation, all would
have been well and the "goose would
have huagklgk" at least for a time, and
I would have "been compelled to sub
mit to a few fulsome jmffs in your pa
per. But I refused to buy you even
at the low price of 1500. O&kes
Ames would have managed the thing
better. He styt the way to make
man attend to butlaess, is to interest
him, and Oakes, you know is wbe on
this subject and understands just bow
to reach the vulnerable points In such
men as you. Suppose you deny hav
ing ever wrote me such a letter and
tell your readers the whole thing is
sheer fabrication. You must either
own up, deny, or be mum : which
course do you propose? Now for
display of ingenuity or abuse, or both,
at the case may be, with your new
Fairhaven press to aid you.
Then again, during the contest for
the Post Office in Jackson, for which
vourson-ln.law was an applicant,you
wrote to me in hit interest, laying
hard thlnga of some of your neigh
bors, and after the present incumbent
wps appointed in obedience to the
wishes of a large majority ot the peo
pie, you wrote me a mott bitter and
upbraiding letter making this em
phatic, threatening remark, "Thank
God there it a hereaiter." Well.
suppose the hereafter hit come, and
hope yon will make the mott of it, at
you teem to be actuated by that un.
dj log spirit ot revenge characteristic
only of tbe savages of the wilderness.
Now, In view of the foregoing facts,
can any man fail to see what Is wrong
with the editor of the .Standard?
think not. Inasmuch at you profess
to be In favor ot equal' righta arid fair
play, i.bope you will printtbU con?
municatlon in your paper, but I ven
ture the prediction that you will not.
Lest you become weary iu reading
thla long letter, I thall now take my
leave, trusting you may lead a quiet
and happy life in the future, and al
low your neighbors to abide In peace,
and when I go to Congress again, I
will make it a leading feature In my
duties to get office for you and your
sons and sons-in-law and all that per
tain to von. Then you will have
ifood time. aLd We will be friends
agalu. - Respectfully,
J. T. WILSON.
