Hi L Mi,
Mr. T. E. Knauss was over
here on Tuesday to see what
had been done towards getting
up the proposed furnace com
pany. Lie lound nothing done,
of course, as our men of cap
ital seem to think that our
county can develop itself with
out any assistance. Mr.Knauss
had with him lelters from
England 1'roai parties who are
using a similar furnace to the
one proposed to be built,
which speak highly of its work
ings. Thomas Middlelou & Co.,
who are ruuuing three ot the
(uruaces, speak highly of them
and say they use less coke,
nidke better iron, and are less
liable to break down than any
other furnace. It is certainly
a cheap furnace, and Mr. K
offers fair enough terms. He
offers to put up a furnace that
will smelt 20 tons of ore per
day with one third less ex
pense than the ordinary tur
nace, lor $16 000, take "$G,000
in stock himseil; $3,000 ul the
block to be paid on order, $2,
000 on arrival of the lurnact;
$2,000 when erected, and $4,
000 when the lurnace proves
satisfactory, a guarantee going
with the trade.

We made mention a few

We were at Gallipolis last
week at the Senatorial Con
vention, and made it a point
to examine into railroad mat
ters as much as our limited
time would permit. Notwith
standing we have watched the
reports of progress from time
to time in the Gallipolis pa
pers we were surprised to see
the amount of work that has
been done. Twenty miles of
the grading is nearly complete.
Two weeks more work ot the
force now engaged will finish
it ready for the 8'iperatructure
Some of the work is very heavy,
probably as difficult as any
that will be encountered on
the entire line between Galli
polis and McArthur. It is all
done in a solid, substantial,
workmanlike manner, "the fills
and cuts being as wide a road
way as will be required for a
We also examined the books
and papers of the company,
Frest. Langley and Mr. Ilenry
Langley, the book keeper, glv
ing us free access to every
thing in the office for that pur
pose. We do not hesitate to
say that there is not a better
kept set of accounts .in any
bank in the State. Every cent
of income and expense is en
tered on the books, and the
bills or receipts as the case
may be, are carefully endorsed,
and filed away in packages by
month?, numbered to corres
pond with the books, so that
if a voucher for any entry on
the books is required, whether
for the smallest or largest sum
ot money, it may be had at a
moment's notice. The books
are kept hy double entry, so
that if any error should creep
into the day's business It must
be discovered at night before
the books will balance. We
notice this condition of the
books and vouchers particular
ly because of the insinuations
which we have heard from Mr.
Langleys opponents, that all
was not just as it should be,
and that Langley and his sou
Uenry were just running things
to suit themselves, and ac
counting for nothing. Ot course
we could not eximine all the
vouchers to -see that exorbi
tant prices were not paid for
supplies, labor, etc.; but the
footing up of the cost of the
road compared with the amount
of work done, answers queries
of that nature beyond ques
tion, for which purpose we in
vite attention to the statement
below, taken from the books
and reports of the Secretary.

amount of debt above is coun

value of personal property
owned by the company in tools,

We do not care to enter into
a .discussion of. the matters
which have led to. the opposi

serve them, and we talked with
partisans of both sides, the op
position is composed principal
ly of three factions.. First,
those wlio are opposed to the
building of the road fearing-
that their business will be hurt

which may be drawn to Galli

We regard it as a fortunate
circumstance for the interests
of the road that no material
change was made in the man
agement. Mr. Langley has
done all that could have been
done. Indeed we are surpris

much with the means at his
disposal, and the opposition he

than ever that he will complete

on that one object,and he works
to that end with-all his indom

muscle of Gallia county are

The Thurman Meeting.
The great Tliurman Mass
Meeting, which was to have been
last Friday, was a complete fiz
zle. The meeting was held in
the Court Ilouso, There was
ample room to accommodate a
crowd twice as large. About a
dozen people were in from the
country, and perhaps a hundred
citizens ot the town went' up to
hear him. lie made the . same
speech here that he made at, Wa
verly, reciting the redit Mo

posod by the Republicans, and
which all the people, without re
gurd to party, condemn. He
bad something to say about re

but not a word about 'his in

shabbily. The meeting was
such a fizzle that it is hardly
worthy of notice.

never was a better chance; ' Tho
dissatisfaction with the nomina

have got beyond the point where
they ore just willing to swallow
anything that may be presented
by a nominating convention.
The Republicans have profited
by the knowledge of this fact
heretofore. The opportunity is
again presented. We believe
they are alive to the situation.
