THE VINTON RECORD
MoARTIIUR, OHIO,.

THURSDAY. DEC. 25, 1873
TAXES IN VINTON CO.
ble, which we clip from the
Cincinnati Gazette, showing
the percentage of taxes paid
by all the counties in the State
for local purposes, exclusive of
State taxes. To it we invite
the careful attention of the
tax-payers of Vinton county.
It will be seen that there are
but five counties in the Slate
that pay as high a per cent, as
Vinton, and tour of those are
engaged in an extensive sys
tem ot drainage of the whole
counties to make swamp lands
available, which necessarily
makes their local taxes high.
la Vinton county we have no
public improvements worthy
of note; in fact we are behind
all our neighbors in this re
spect, yet It will be seen that
while the general average of
the State is 14.9 mills, Vinton
county pays 21.27, or nearly
twice as much as the average.
These are the plain unvarnish
ed facts from the official record.
While other counties can build
turnpikes, fine Court Houses,
jails, etc., and pay a heavy in
terest on bonds issued under
the old constitution to build
railroads, out of 14 9 mills tax
ation, we can not carry on the
ordinary expenses of the coun
tyfor there are hundreds ot
county orders unpaid on a
tax ot 21.27 mills. These
are the facts; and now we ask
tax payers what they are going
to do about it? Take this to
your neighbor and counsel with
him. There is no political ex
citement now, and you will
have the opportunity to im
press the matter upon his
mind, and plenty of time to or
ganize a movement before
electioA times which will
clean out the tax-eater's ring.
Tub report ot the Fostm later-General
is completed, aud
shows that the expenses ot the
department will exceed the
income by $4,638,383. This
does not include $1,225,000 for
mail service between San
Francisco and Japan and Chi
na. Yet the Postmaster Gen
eral told us last year that if
the iranking privilege was
abolished the department
would be self sustaining. There
should be added to this deficit
about another million, which
Uncle Sam's Navy, War, Inte
rior and Stale departments
Lave paid Uncle Sam's Post
office department for carrying
Uncle Sam's letters. The re
peal of the franking privilege
was one ot our greatest of
modern humbugs. There is
only one person makes any
thing off ot it, and that's the
man who prints the official
stamps. The people can make
nothing by it no more than a
man can get rich by swapping
jaefcknives with himself.
The Salary Grab.
After an almost mtermina
lie wrangle, which has been in
progress ever sinoe Congress
met, the House ot Representa
tives on Wednesday settled the
salary business (temporarily,
at least,) by adopting a resolu.
tion fixing the compensation at
6,000 and actual expenses of
travel. The Vice President
and Speaker are to receive
$8,000, and the President and
Cabinet officers are to remain
unchanged.
The resolution is not retroac
tive. No back pay is to be re
turned. The Senate committee have
reported a bill reducing the
pay to $5,000 and actual ex
penses ot travel from home.
O. T Gushing has moved to
Washington, Faette conuty.
The Salary Grab. [From the Gallipolis Ledger.
To The Stockholders ot the
Gallipolis, McArthur & Columbus
R. Co.
Gallifolis, 0 Dec 17th, 1873.
Gentlemen: I left home on
the 11th day of November for
McArthur, and arrived there
on the 12tb, having with me
the pay rolls for the work ol
October called at the Vinton
County National Bank (acting
as assistant treasurer for the
railroad company), on the 13th,
and was informed thnt no mon
ey had been paid on subscrip
tions for (he payment of the
force for the October work.
Upon inquiry I found that a
few of the largest and most
able subscribers, when required
to pay their subscriptions de
clined, and claimed that they
intended putting tenuis on the
road to workout their subscrip
tions; but I soon satisfied my
self that the object of at least
two of the largest subscribers
was, if possible, to defeat the
payment of the men, and thus
compel them to sell their
claims on the company to
these modem Sbylocks at a
heavy discount. And as the
pay day was the 15th there
was but little lime for collec
tions, and, after learning from
Messrs. Will and Delay, Pres't
and Cashier of the Vinton
County National Bank that
notwithstanding they had done
no discounting since the com
mencement of the panic, they
would, for the purposn of pay
ins the men, discount paper
enough to pay off the October
pay roll, and with that under
standing we went to work, and
by Saturday, P. M., had within
about one thousand dollars of
enough in notes and money to
pay off the October work. To
provide for the thousand dol
lars, Cornelius Karns, George
W. Sisson and John P. Dunkle.
after having provided their full
share of the amount required,
volunteered to make their note
to supply the deficiency. They
did so, and the bank discount
ed the notes and tbis enabled
us to pay the men, and thus
save the credit of the town,
the county and the Railroad
Company. But from the first
to lat, Dr. Wolf and E. D
Dodge said to be two of the
most able men in the county
refused to pay anything or
give their notes. All praise is
due to Messrs. Will, Delay,
Karns, Sision and Dunkle, and
all others who respected their
words and the credit of the
Railroad Company enough to
aid in the payment ot the men
at a time of so great a financial
panic as reigned at the time
throughout the country. Sup't
Kirkpatrick Las had, and still
has at work from 35 to 50
teams, and is doing very cheap
work, giving very general sat
isfaction to all that I heard
speak of the work. We ex
pect to put from fifty to one
hundred more men at work in
the course of next week. We
have conpleted an agreement
with the Vinton Coal and Iron
Company and their lessees,
Messrs. Bancroft & Son, for
seventy thousand dollars, in
eluding two and one-third miles
of finished Railroad, now in
use, between the Vinton Fur
nace and Vinton Station, the
amount to be expended on the
ine of onr road south of the
Vinton Furnace.
I found it necessary to make
two trips east to Philadelphia,
Columbus and one to Chilli
cothe, before this matter could
be put in working shape, and
for that reason had not time to
look after some other subscrip
tions that we expect to get as
the work progresses.
The prospects for oar road
were never better, notwith
standing the dificulties of the
times and ths rualignant at
tempts that have been and
still are being made to defeat

We commend this beautiful
journal to our readers as one
ot the ablest, purest, and most
carefully edited of all the lit

stories are not of the trashy,
sensational character, yet are
of absorbing interest, and will
be read by every member of
the family with pleasure and
profit. Its editorials are able
timely, independent. The best
American and foreign writers
contribute to its columns; and
take it all in all, it is as near a
perfect Home Paper as is pub
