THE VINTON RECORD.
VlIURMDAY. JAN 1, 1874.
Happy New Year.
The Kecord extends to all
ita readers the courtesies of
the season, and wishes them
one and all a Ilappy New Year.
In doing no we take ocoassion
to say that the Record is in a
healthy condition, its home
list of subscribers steadily in
creasing while it is being taken
and read by numerous ex-Vin-tonians
throughout every Slate
and Territory of the great west,
from Raccoon to the shores of
the Pacific To them we ex
pect to chronicle during the
coming year the-inauguration
of a new era in Lit tie Vinton
the completion of the railroad
from Gallipohs to Kama', the
Farmers' & Miners' road ac.ain
on its feet, furnaces in pvocess
of erection, and mineral w ealth
'of coal and iron being develop
ed. The prospects are that 1874
will be a m&rked year in the
history of Vinton county.
Those who wish to keep posted,
or to have their friends in the
West made acquainted with
the progress ot the county,
should take the Record ior
themselves, and subscribe lor
a copy to some friend.
Ansa Hanks, a white girl in
the employ of Uov. A lien, has
run away with and married an
old toothless darkey named
llogan. If such an event had
Occurred in the household of
a Republican Governor it
would have been a delicious
morsel for - Democratic papers
to chuckle over and hold up
aa a reason why the people
should not vote the Republi
can ticket Even as it is, the
Advertiser can not forbear to
say: "Here we have a good ex
emplification of the doctrines
taught by the abolitionists,
and here we see a fair picture
of what we may expect when
the radicals push through their
Civil Rights bills, and the col
ored race are forced into the
society of the whites." .
Yes; but then what good is
therein a civil rights bill when
each things occur under the
very nose and benign influence
of the elect ot the elect un
der the vine and fig tree, as it
were, ot a white man's govern
menU And why should Bro.
Elliot fear the Civil Rights bill?
Does he need protection from
the wiles of some toothless
daughter of Africa? If so a
note to Sumner, who is the
father to the fatherless, will se
cure proper legislation for his
Some of the country papers
are so foolish as to relnse to
publish the prospectus of the
Cincinnati Commercial be
cause the Commercial calls
the country press "rural roost
ers." We had no idea any ot
the .brethren were so thin-skin
ned. What would they do if
. the Commercial would call
them too-ral-rural roosters?
Wouldn't that create a commo
tion among the dunghillb? As
'for ourselves we publish the
Commercial's prospectus be
cause we want the paper. We
know it's a naughty sheet, but
we don't mind its calling ns
names as long as it serves ev
$ry body else in the same way.
An the IocomCtive engineers
on the Pennsylvania Central R.
R, are on a strike owing to a re
duction of ten per cent, on their
wages. But few trains are bein?
ran and they are engineered by
by the officers of the road.
Gehet, another of the Tweed
theives has been convicted,
and a Tweed thief of a
Sheriff has allowed him toes
cape and flee the country.
Bxtkktt persons who sent
from Ross county to George
B. Hodge Sr Co., Chicago, to
purchase goods, were swindled
out ol their money.
TflK Virginias has foundered
at sea, while in transit to New
York,' probably much to the
gratification ,of the diplomats.
Dr. Wolf has been prospect
ing on his Elk Fork coal vein.
Ue has driven an entry twen
ty feet into the hill east of'the
Speed bouse, and nor'.h of Mc
Arthur, where the coal is thirty-one
inches, and' increasing
steadily in thickness. A doz
en holes were diijled in the
meadow, and the coal found iu
each place at a depth ot five
leet. Ilia examination satis
fies Liin that iiis to be found
underlying the whole Spetd
farm, and ia fret the whole
country round about here. Dr.
D. V'. Rannells is now engaged
in boring for it near the reser
voir, southwest ot town, and
there is uo doubt but he' will
find it, as it crops out in Rich
njond's meat'ovy, near there..
The coal, ia of a , superior1
quality, and laid down by Prol.
Andrews as the Juckson vein.
Whether 'it is or not may be an
open question, but we think
there can bo no doubt of one
thing that it is equally as fine
a coal as tho Jacksop or llil
ton veins and will smelt iron
ore successfully It is. the same
in appearance, burns with a
stiong clear light, leaving no
clinkers,, and but very little.
ana. Here lies the elements
of wealth and prosperity. Is
there enterprise enough here
to startHhe ball rolling? . Lot it
once be settled practically
that this coal will make iron,
and with the completion oi'our
railroad, capitalists will soon
shake off the slothful appear
ance of our town, and make it
alive with furnaces, factories
and trade Our neighboring
town ot Jickson slept ior
years, a one horse poverty
stricken hamlet, on just such
wealth, until the first furnace
was built, since which lime she
has put on new life, built halt
a dozen iurnaces, and left us
away behind in the race for
wealth and population. There
is money here to build and
operate a furnace. Quit loan
ine at ten per cent., put It in
Iurnaces and lei it make its
twenty per cent, there and a
hundred per ceut on the lands.
Who will be the first to move?
Dr. Wolf is the proper man.
Lie has the money; he has the
lands, and be has the coal. lias
he got the enterprise and pub
lie spirit? We shall see; for the
Dr. knows just what he has
on the Speed farm, and ha.s the
ability to enrich himself, and
at the same time become a
public benefactor. If he will
make the start in earnest, his
influence will secure all the co
operation he desires.
Senator Th urm an is announc
ed in Chillicothe ior the pur
pose of revising Gov. Allen's
inaugural. He wants to see
that the old gentleman does
not dwell too much on pre
historic and other foolish
things. Putnam could have
done that as well.
Scpt. Feapodt announces in
the Cincinnati papers a reduc
tion of fare from that point to
Baltimore, to $10.

week the population is shown
to be 2,361, being more than
double the population ot 137(X
About one hundred houses
have been put up during the
past season. We have the same
rate of progress within our
grasp here by the completion
of the railroad, baying the
same elements of wealth in
coal, and superior advantages
in iron. VY111 our citizens nur
