It is said that Vinton Fur

the 1st of February. The new
hearth was completed last Sat
urday morning. The machinery
is being repaired, and all the
necessary preparations being
made for the manufacture ol
the best iron. The style of the
new firm is Bancroft & Rader.
A company is about to be or
ganized at Portland, Ohio, to
manufacture fire brick. The
manufactories at Webster and
Sciotoville cannot supply the
demand, large quantities being
sent out of the State, even as
far as Chicago. There is an
abundance of the best fire clay
in the world, near Portland.
Monroe Furnace, Scioto coun
ty, Ohio, is operated by the
Union Iron Company. This
Company also operates Wash

land. Last year they cut the
timber on 800 acres of land,
It takes the timber of nearly
400 acres to run one of these
lanre Furnaces a year. Last
year they had about 20,000
cords cut. They pay this win

According to the report of
Secretary of State, Ohio in 1871
was the third State in the Union
in the amount of corn which it
raised. Only Illinois and Iowa
were in advance of it. Iowa
and Ohio each raised about
100,000,000 bushels. Illinois
has 303,000,000 bushels. Be
hind us are Missouri and In

87,000,000 and 79,000,000

of land planted in corn in Illi

What is the "Credit Mobilier?"
This question continues to be
asked, in spite of the repeate
explanation already given. The
inside history of that combina
tion, which availed itself of an
old act of incorporation passed
by the Pennsylvania Legisla
ture, and organized under the
French financial designation
now so notorious, is related in
on allidavit of one of its mem
bers, Dr. Thomas C. D chant, of
which the following is a brief
When the Union Pacific
road was under construction a
"ring" was formed inside the
direction, embracing, as such a
combination always does, the
shrewdest, most active and
least scrupulous of the Board
for the purpose of making large
fortunes for its members in an
illegitimate manner, at the cost
of the road and of the unsus
pecting stockholders. As usua!
the object was to be achieved
by means of construction con
tracts. Jhrough the vote ol
the "ring" the work was to be
awarded in a lump to some
dummy contractor, at a price
double or more than double the
cost, with a fair profit added :
for, as a great many capacious
appetites had to be satisfied
an ample margin was necessary,
The contractor was then to
make over the contract to the
ig" Directors, in the capac
ity of stockholders of the Credit
Moiblier, the pretense, being
that the Credit Mobilier had
the means to push the work
vigorously forward, and would
be better able to do so than any
single individual. In pursuance
of this conspiracy for it was
nothing else the contract for
the construction of a large por
tion of the road at fifty thous
and dollars a mile was awarded
and duly assigned to the "ring"
a price which, according to
Dr. Durants statement, was
more than double the legitimate
cost of the work. This, how
ever, was not enough. By the
votes of the conspirators many
miles of the road which had al
ready been constructed and ac
cepted by the United States
Government as complete, and
which had nearly all been paid
for by the Union Pacific Com
pany, were included in the con
tract at fifty thousand dollars
mile, and thus an enormous
amount of hioney was taken
bodily, as it were, out of the
pockets of the stockholders,
without a shadow of justifica
tion, and transferred to the
greedy grasp of the ring. The
shares of the Credit Mobilier
were thus made at once worth
from eight to ten times their
value that is to
thousand dollar share
was worth irom eight to ten
thousand dollars in cash.
Among the bills before
Congress, brought by memberf
the dominant party, are the
1. To purchase and run the
telegraph as a Government in
stitution. 2. To assume jurisdiction
over and regulate the fares oi
3. To pass a National elec
tion law, and supervise and
control the elections of the

The Constitutional Convention.
The law fixing the time for
holding the Constitutional Con'
vention has at last passed both
branches of the Ohio Legisla
ture. It now devolves upon the
people to select suitable mem
bers to represent them in that
body. Vinton county is enti
tled to one delegate to the
Convention. The election wil
bo held on the first Monday in
April, the 7th ; and the Con
vention will assemble in Co
lumbus on the second Tuesday in
May next. This will be one of
the most important elections
held for twenty years, and
many journals of this State
have suggested the necessity of
selecting the best men for Dele'
gates. ' It is to be hoped that
Vinton county will not be be
hind in this important matter,
The questions that will come
before the Constitutional Con
vention lor consideration ana
final action are various and o
the gravest importance to the
future history and welfare of
the State. Among the most
important of these subjects will
be the much talked of reform of
the judiciary system, provisions
for the more stringent govern
ment of corporations, especially
railroads, the ever agitated tem
perance question, the tenure of
office, abolition of capital pun
ishment, etc., etc.

A novel question of life in-
surance is likely to arise in
Delaware. Professor West, of
Dover, had his life insured for
$25,000 for the benefit 0 his
amily. He has confessed to
he killing of a-negro named
Gooch Tcrnek. His apparent
object in the murder was that
mutilated body of the negro
might be mistaken for his own
corpse, and the insurance com
panies defrauded out of the
$25,000. The question arises,
West is hanged for this mur-
er, will the companies be com
pelled to pay the amount of the
insurance to his family.

but one name mentioned

They all unite in favor of Gen
eral Thos. Ewing, of Lancas

could be uominated. Marietta
Raper and the Half-Bushel
Enquirer: An editorial
notice appeared in the last Record
of our article on "Raper and the
Half-Bushel," in which notice there
are some remarkable utterances.
Rater has in what ho was pleased
to say in that article made himself
look more absurd and contemptible
than he usually does when he
writes, and this is no small achieve
ment for one who uniformly writes
the most contemptible of silly things
tew men possess more self-confl
dence or egotistical vanity than
Raper. Few men possoss a less
share of good, sound, practical sense
than he. Fewer still have the un
happy union of egotism and igno
rance that characterizes him, and
makes him an object of utter con
tempt. The article hefore me fully
justifies these remarks. He in that
article unwittingly assumes to he a
part of the "ring" which he says he
is "ventilating." He says ho is
"ventilating that part of the riug
which refers to McGillivray and
Shivel unlawfully using rooms in
the Court House," Ac. No hpdy
but Raper ever claimed that fiiey
were 'Hinlawfulty using rooms in
the Court House." He is the owy
man that has shown such little re
spect for truth and common decency
as to publish to that part of tlu
1.1 ! t ! J
certainly ought to have known to
That part of the ring which refers
to ohivel ana jucuillivray un
lawfully using rooms at the Court
House," dec, he is ventilating.
That part of "the ring which re
fers to McGillivrat and SnivEL
using rooms unlawfully" is Raper.
Therefore, he is the thing his pa
per is "ventilating," and he must
not blame me too severely for not
liking such a thing when ventilated.
A part of the ring refers to
"McGillivrat and Snmx unlaw
fully using rooms at the Court
Raper is the only man that does
Raper is, therefore, the whole of
that part of the "ring" that I "espe
cially don't like to see ventilated."
A man whose ideas are so low,
pointless and ill-defined, and whose
anguage is without grace or dig
nity, and abounds with such ambi
guities as that used by Rafek, is
not the man to edit a newspaper.
The same may be said of him that
the Prosecutor said of "Taxpayer."
He has doubtless "mistaken his
calling." His skill would cer
tainly appear to better advantage if
After thus ventilating himself, as
a part of the "ring," he proceeds to
say that he will not "support Bel-
ford for re-election in case he
should bo nominated."
This statement coming from hiin
is not only absurd, but utterly con
temptible. Nobody expected hiin
to support Belford. No one would
have believed him if he had sol
emnly declared that he intended to
do so. He is not the kind of a man
who would likely support a good man
even of his own part', in preference
to a bad one, had the opportunity
been offered him. Such language
from him in reference to a Democrat
who may possibly be a candidate
for re-election too plainly declares
him a fool to leave any doubt as to
his being such.
Why does he take the trouble to
solemnly declare that he will not
support Belford for re-election,
when everybody knowing him, knew
h'e would not ? when he well knew
that all who knew him, knew he
would not ? Did he expect to
make some fool believe that Belford
had been guilty of official miscon
duct, and that that was Raper'b
reason for not supporting hira for
He greatly underrates the intellir
gence or even the simpletons of
Vinton county, if he thinks any of
them will be misled in this way by
him. His over-weaning self-esteem
has impressed his imbecile judg
ment into the belief that there are
many other men in Vinton county,
WEAKER THAN HIMSELF.
He does not deny being influ
enced by the motives we have
ascribed to him ; that they are those
that prompted him to make the at
tack he has made on Belford.
He, therefore, stands before the
people of Vinton county as a man
actuated and led on by mcrcenery
considerations to utter things which
he does not to be true, and which if
he was at all informed he would cer
tainly know to bo false, and things
which, whether true or false, he
would continue to utter so long as
their utterances would seem to serve
his purposes. As a man who docs

when erect, is only at a level with
the LEAST OF SMALL THINGS as a
