GALLIPOLIS, McARTHUR & COLUMBUS
RAILROAD.
Last week we published a letter
from President Langley l'plftting to
the construction of the Galllpolis,
McArthur & Columbus Railroad,
in which ho spoke of the decision
of the Supremo Court of Ohio, on
the unconstitutionality of the Bocs
Til - Railroad Lawr This decision
has somewhat surprised the people
most interested in not only this but
many other railroad enterprises.
There J8 now no way for the people
to do but take the matter in their
own hands and push it through. It
will not do to manifest a want of
energy or determination at this
time. The question now arises,
where can tho necessary capital,
required to complete the enterprise,
be procured? It is hardly necessa
ry for us to say to the people of
Vinton county and in McArthur in
particular, that there is no county
or town in tho State so much in
want of railroad facilities a north
and south route in particular as
the people of McArthur and Vinton
county. There is not the amount
of business and wealth In the place
there should be; and, until we have
more railroad conveniences, the
business and value of the place
will be only of a meagre and limit
ed quality. With our present de
ficiency in railroad convenience,
wealth and business is driven away;
and hence we drag along in the old
stage-coach style. We must not
flatter ourselves too much on the
very, few improvements we have
made during the past twenty-three
years. Other places, with less ad
vantages of population and wealth,
have lone since grown far away
from us because of their railroad
accommodations. We should not
let this opportunity pass without
making a united eifort to raise, in
some manner, the means necessary
to secure the completion of the
road to this place at least Who
will make a move the matter?
Since writing the above a com
munication has been received from
"A Citizen," which will be found
elsewhere in this paper, to which
we call the especial attention of
everybody.
It seems that the " Litenen Kal
kulator " has reached tho City of
Columbus, where the Constitution
al Convention is in session. Wheth
er he has presented a copy of a new
Constitution for the consideration
of the Convention, we are not ad
vised, but we havo heard from him
in a different niitnner. lie must be
there we mean our " Kalkulator "
Wells from Jackson county. The
following paragraph from the Con
vention proceedings given in last
Friday's Columbus Dailt Dispatch
will explain itself:
Mr. Alexander, from the Commit
tee on Privileges and Elections,
submitted a report stating that the
credentials of all the members are
correct, and they are entitled to
their seats; that the scat of Mr.
Wells of Vinton, is contested, and
appoint the 28th inst. as the time
in which the Committee will take
testimony in that case.
A we have before stated, the
election is being contested by a
citizen of Mr. Wklls' own county-
Jackson.
Prospect in Ohio.
The people of Ohio are tired
of Radical rule and greatly dis
pleased with the Grand Salary
Steal Law enacted by the late
Radical Congress.
With anything like judicious
management and the selection
of Gen. Thomas Ewinq for Gov
ernor, and of other proper can
didates at the Convention to be
held next August, there can
scarcely be room for a doubt
that the Democratic and Liber
al Republican Ticket will be
elected by a , handsome majori
ty; that the revolution in the
State will surpass that which
culminated at the recent elec
tion of Connecticut.
A Morning pajwr Js of the opin
ion that nothing was too low for the
Forty-second Congresn. This is a
mistake,, for their salary wus too
low; so the members rftWil it, by
lowering themselves.
LIGHT IS DAWNING.
Though the prevalence of pub
lie corruption is sometimes dis-
heartning, yet the signs of bet
ter times coming are plain
enough to cheer the hearts
all good men. We will note
some :
1 It is the practice of some
lawyers (deserving themselves
to be called criminals) to foist
into jurys one or two supple
tools, so as to compel a disa
greement. Recently, in Phila
delphia, in the trial of a keeper
of a gambling 6aloon, two jurors
tried to prevent a verdict. The
remaining ten kept the jury, to
gether eleven days until they
compelled their dishonest asso
ciates to ' a conviction. Some
day we may have a law which
will go sharply after the law
yers who follow the practice of
packing the jury-box. -2
The farmers of Illinois
have taken in hand the tyran
ny of raijroad corporations.
In a large delegate convention,
they have oaJed on the Legis
lature to abolish the diserlmin-
ation made against local
freights; to enquire whether
some of the railroad corpora
tions have not forfeited their
charters, and to provide for the
execution of the laws affecting
the companies. This lu, we
think, only the beginning of a
popular uprising against the
domineering spirit of all corpo
rations. It is the beginning,
too, of the assertion of thejll?
powers of the State. The State
is the ereatov of corporations,
and their master. It grants
each franchise, and can revoke
it again. Moreover, the State
confers the franchise as a pup
lic benefit; J?ut if, in the hands
of a corporation, it becomes a
public injury, the State can en
ter and take possesion. Still
further, every corporation pas
duties to the community, and
the State is bound to see that
these are properly perfonned.-rrr
Tbe farmers, who are the ma
jority in every State, are the
very men to bring to an issue
the question of insubordination
of railway corporations to the
law.
3 We have reformed New
York city, and the obstruction
ists who are trying to make our
charter partisan, are, inch by
inch, giving way. Reform will
not be defeated. Public opin
ion is too strong even for dis
honest legislation.
4 The Congressmen who
filched the Treasury of "back
pay" already "have their re
ward." They are followed to
their homes by a storm of indig
nation, which must be the re
verse of comfortable for them.
The list of members who voted
for this piece of dishonesty
has been spread before the
world. They may affect to de
spise puplic opinion; but public
opinion can express itself in
votes, as they will find.
Altogether, these gleams of
light are enough to inspire hope.
We shall not die, but live. -There
is much corruption, but
the heart of the people, is
sound.
A terrific tornado or whirl
wind, accompanied with hail
and rain, passed over the coun
try, about six miles north of
Washington, Iowa, on Thurs
day afternoon last The torna
do was about one-half mile in
width, and tore into fragments
everything that came in its
course. Houses, barns, fences,
trees, cattle, and human, beings
were caught up and whirled
through the air like toys, and
then dashed to the ground with
such violence as to produce In
stant death to animate beings.
Houses and barns were torn to
fragments and scattered for
miles around. The fields are
dotted with large timbers driv
en into the ground at an angle
of ninety degrees, and cattle
were actually driven head-foremost
into the ground. Eight
persons aro tfius far reported
killed.
The Boesel Railroad Law Unconstitutional.
of
The Supreme Court of Ohio,
on Tuesday, May 13, 1873, de
clared the law known as the
Boesel Railroad law, unconstitu
tional in its provisions Chief-
Justice White delivering the
opinion of the Court, the entire
bench concurring, in the case of
James Taylor, vs., Commission
ers of Ross County, Ohio. The
decision being unanimous of
course puts this matter at rest.
Elk township will bo disap
pointed by this adverse decis
ion, and her $25,000 bonds,
now deposited with the Treas
urer of State will be cancelled.
The Constitutional Conven
tion, now in session, will be
looked to for some provision in
the matter of the people taxing
themselves forB public improve
ment.
The decision of the Supreme
Court in tlie above case. Is as
follows :
1. Taxation can only be au-
tlioried for public purposes.
Wherp, therefore, a statute au
thorizes a county, township or
municipality, to levy taxes not
above a given per cent, on the
taxable property of the locality
or the purpose of building so
much pf a vaijroafl as can, be
built for that amount, and the
part of a railroad so built can
be of no public utility unless
used to accomplish an unconsti
tutional purpose, such tax is il
legal and cannot be imposed.
Sec. 6. Art. 8 of the Consti
tution declares, that " the Gen
eral Assembly shall never au
thorize any coantyj city, town
or township, by vote of its citi
zens or otherwise, to become a
stock-holder in any joint stock
company, corporation or associ
ation whatever, or to raise mon
ey for, or loan its credit to, or
in aid of, any such company,
corporation pr association."
What the General Assembly is
thus prohibited from doing di:
rectly, it has no right to do in
directly. Where public credit or
money is furnished by any of
the sub-divisions of the State
named, to be used in part 3Q"
struction of a work, which' un-
? the statute authorizing its
uer tu
construction, must be coiiip!?tll:
if completed at all, by other
parties out or tneir own means,
who are to own or have the
beneficial control and manage
ment of the work when com
pleted, the public money trr
credit thus used, can only be
regarded as furnished for, or . in
aid of, such parties.
4. The act of April 22, 1 872,
to authorize counties, townships
and the municipalities therein
named to build railroads, &c,
(69 0. L. 84) authorizes the
raising of money by taxation,
which Is equally applicable to
the unlawful purpose of aiding
railroad companies, and others
engaged in building and opera
ting railroads, as it is to any
lawful purpose, and gives to the
officers intrusted with the con
trol and application ot the mon-
1 1
py tnus raised, no means or
power of discrimination as to
the lawfulness or unlawfulness
of the work or purpose to which
it is to be applied, and is thus
m contravention of Sec. 0, Art,
8 of tho Constitution, and,
therefore, void,

GRANT'S STABLE FIXTURES.
A correspondent has been wri
ting up Grant's stable " fixtures. "
lhcy are pretty nice. Here is
little list:
Twohorsos , $2,000
Three trotting horses 3,000
Two ordinary horses 300
One barouche. 1,200
One dog cart 1,000
One ptuvton 150
One trotting wagon 350
Harness, saddles, clothing, 1,050
Total.
$9,950
Passing by tho dog-cart, the har
ness, " bright, massively golden and
" wagon for speed in trotting, " we
come to tho cap-sheaf of all this ori
ental magnificence. "But still
more conspicuous as they approach
you, says tho correspondent, " are
tho driver and his companion. Jet
isn't a circumstance to the blackness
of their faces; while their costumes
aro white corduroy and white flan
nel, trimmed with'silver, with white
top boots as nearly as you can make
out; and the contrast between their
costume and glossy hats and faces
is marked and distinct as that of
daylight and darkness. The taller
holds the reins, but ho is euual to
the emergency, and, so far as the
unpractised white eye can deter
mine, there is not a ripple on his
Nubian face. The shorter seems
entirely for ornament, and p,ita with
his arms lolqetl across his chest -
DiaoK and white monument
to
wealth and social greatness. "
there you have the President of
our republic at his best,
under ordinary cuoumstanccs the
Cftutettts of n eontlemau's siibla-f
coma nowise legitimately concern a
newspaper; but it may be different
in Grant's case. Grant is a sala
ried government official. Dog carts
and fancy negro driyersi, a,nf foot-,
rnp.ii,, aqd gjkleu harness, cost mon
ey, A little while ago, one of tho
Grant organs contained a plaint
that tho President spent yearly
ten thousand dollors more than his
salary. Then, as ho went into the
office poorer than a church mouse,
he must have obtained pyiuce-ly
su!ti8 outside of in legitimate- In
come 10 enablo him to live like an
Eastern nabob. Is there any prop
er way whereby ho could have reaV
ized such U ' no has niailo
biniHolf immensely' rich in three
years, by means unbecoming his
olllce, is he a fit man for President?
Can any Grant organ or orfltw, or
any sane lemiViicnn citizen 'an
swer, these questions satisfctonly?
tiuestipns buniliU -to tliv-tavc
been asked time and again, but aro
yet to bo answered.
The lato elections indicate
that the Liberal "leaven" is
working. And this is owing to
the ereed and corruption of
men in place and power, practi
cally demonstrated by the last
Congress. If the people had
been as thoroughly convinced
during the late Presidential
canvass, as they now are, of
the rottenness of the leaders
they trusted in, the Democrats
and Liberals would have swept
the country. Tweed's circum
scribed rascalities pale before
the barefaced law. makers who
sell their votes and tax the peo
ple for the benefit of rings and
monopolies, to swell their pri
vate gains. The farmers who
feed and clothe all, and are the
basis of the wealth and prosper
ity of tho country, have had a
very small volca iu its govern
ment. They are now organiz
ingfrom one end of the land to
the other. And this is the
power that will save the Repub
lic.. They niay bo called Liber-;
als or Democrats; it matters
not ; they are determined that
the existing evils must ho rem
edied, and those now in power
removed. Revolutions of this
kind never go backwardl This
is an " irrepressible conflict. "

ISHART'S FINE TREE
TAR CORDIAL!
NATURE'S GREAT REMEDY
EOR THE
THROAT AND LUNGS t
It is gratifying to us to lulbnu the public
that Dr. h. O. C. Wlshart's Pine Treo Tar
Coiillnl, for Throat mid Lung Diseases, has
guined an enviable reputation from the At
lantic to the Pacific coast, and from thence to
some of the first famlllosor Europo, not thro'
tho press alone, but br persons throughout tho
States actually benelltted and cured ut his
olllce. While ho publishes less, so say onr re
porters, ho is unable to supply the demand. It
gains and holds its reputation
First. Not by stopping cough, but by loos
oning and assisting naturo to throw off tliti
unhealthy matter collectod about the throat
and bronchial tubes, wkiek eavtetlrritation.
Kocond. It removes tho cause of Irritation
(which produces cough) of the mucous mem
brane and bronchial tubes, assists the lungs
to act and throw off the unhealthy secretions,
and purines the blood.
Third. It is free from squills, lobelia, Ipecar
and opium, of which most throat and lung
remedies aro eoniposod, which allay coughi
only, and disorganize the stomach. It has a
soothing effect on the stomach, nets ou the
liver and kidneys, and lymphatic and nervous?
regions, thus reucding to every part of tho
system, and in its Invigorating mid purifying
effects it has gained a reputation which ft
must hold aliove all othors In the market.
