Electric Railway Matters- -,
Editor Leader: Will yon 'kindly
allow us space to answer an inspired
article which appeared in to-day'sKeg-ister,
in relation to the electric street
The Eegister states that a lareo re
monstrance against the granting of a
franchise to any company which will
not occupy Greene, Front and Putnam
streets has been made. Wo are in per
fect accord with the Register and the
signers of the remonstrance in regard
to this point. Wo are not only willing,
but anxious to construct tho road on
these streets, but that is as far as we
do or can agree with the Register. It
says that the rates arc substantially
the same. If the people can see no dif
ference between our bid and the bid of
B"Mr. Davis then the Council would have
cause to hesitate in the matter. If
'granting the laboring men and all
v others a half fare rate during two
, , hours of the day in which of necessity
there is the most travel, also carrying
" the school children and children be
tween eight and four years at half fare
and younger children free is not worth
tho consideration of the Council we
have nothing more to say on that point.
The Register says it is a business
proposition and the old company will
grant it. Why then did not Mr. Davis
make his bid accordingly ? I5ut how
does the Register know this? It also
states that it makes no difference to
the Council whose money constructs
the line. But we take it that it makes
a difference to the people whether the
earnings of the road are kept here and
spent in the improvement of the city or
.taken elsewhere. It adds that it is a
cheap argument that because the old
company has done nothing it shall
havo no consideration now. Perhaps it
would not be amiss to recite a little re
cent history for the benefit of the Reg
ister, as its memory seems to be qu'te
defective. When the undersigned,
about eighteen months ago, applied
for a franchise the representatives of
route number ono immediately made a
counter proposition reciting at length
their woes and failures with the old
line and so worked 'on the feelings of
the Council that vie were asked by
somo members thereof to compromise
the matter, which we did by withdraw
ing in their fayor. As soon as they
jivere assured that we were out of the
way they informed the Council that
it need not consider street railway mat
ter unless" tho electric light plant was
thrown in at a low price and a fat con
tract were awarded them. Tho Coun
cil very properly declined to sell tho
electric light plant or award said fat
contract, and as everybody knows,
nothing further was done until we
again applied for a franchise, which we
-did on tho solicitation of members of
tho Council. We had no sooner ap
plied than the representatives of route
No. 1 again approached the Council
with a higher bid for the street light
ing plant and an o'ffer to furnish lights
at a lower rate than before. Finding
this proposition was ignoicd by the
council they waited until tho time had
nearly expired for submitting bids for
route No. 2, when they tendered a bid
coupled with another demand for the
street lighting plant at a still higher
price for the plant and an even less
rate for the lighting.
Wo have said to Council that when
tho street lighting plant is to be sold,
(if that time ever comes, wo desired to
submit a bid, and if we cannot pay a
better price than our highest competi
tor or furnish lights lower wo would
not expect to secure tho plant.

of 50 barrels por hour, and lato this

that this would be a dry hole, but it is

Up to a late hour this oyening noth

Indian creek district.
The monthly report of tho pipe lines
having the custody of oil produced in
the fields of Pennsylvania, Now York,
West Virginia and that; of Ohio pro
ducing a similar grade of oils makes
an apparently bearish exhibit, but by
a careful examination of the figures in
connection with a consideration of the
field situation, it is found to present
no features warranting tho expecta
tion of beurish effects 'on the value of
The bearish feature is, of course, the
increase of stocks of nearly a quarter
of a million barrels, due to the de
crease in deliveries. It should be
borne in mind, however, that tho smal
ler deliveries as also runs, are in great
part accounted for by tho difference in
the length of tho two months under
During the interval of the close of
February and the date when the re
port was made public, tho field situa
tion has developed features which null
ify any bearish features of tho pipe
lino report, and the course of tho mar
ket since is evidence that tho condi
tions are becominc more and more
favorable to holders of oil.
It is somewhat difficult to account
for the smaller deliveries during Feb
ruary, as there is nothing in the ex
port situation to indicate a decreased
demand in fact.'the shipments during
the first half of tho current month
show a largo increase, while reports
from tho principal foreign markets are
favorable to a continuance of an active
A feature of tho increased demand
for foreign account is tho largo engage
ments of case oil for far Eastern mar
kets, and it is quite probable that the
total export requirements during
March will exceed those in January, in
which case the increase in stocks dur
ing ldst month will bo absorbed.
The production during February
amounted to only 2,473,288 barrels,
which shows the decrease to havo been
202.908 barrels. Tho February produc
tion was over 00,000 barrels less than
the ayeraga. of the twelve months of
1895, but exceeded that of February
last year by over 410,000 barrels.
' The deliveries during the last month
amounted to 2,248,403 barrels, showing
a decrease of 281,201 barrels, and being
the smallest since January of last year.
The total stocks at tho close of tho
month amounted to 0,570,529 barrels,
the increase having been 240.9G3 barrels.
Tho statistical situation of Ohio oil
shows several features of similarity to
that of Pennsylvania oil, in that there
was a decrease during February in both
runs and deliveries and an increase in
net stocks. The changes, however,
were less marked, and allowing for tho
difference of two days in tho months'
compared there is practically little
change in the situation.
Tho runs during February reached a
total of 1,G31,939 barrels, which shows
a decrease of 107,352 barrels. Tho de
liveries amounted to 1,593,328 barrels,
which is a decrease of 209,033 barrels.
Both the runs and deliveries however,
exceeded the axerages of tho twolvo
months of 1895. Tho total net stocks
at tho close of February amounted to
21,473,778 barrels, showing an increase
during the month of 41,009 barrels.

Coi.umhus, Ohio, March 21. Ex-Senator
jhn Q. Abbott, of Morgan county,
who wasrocontly convicted of bribery
In the. Criminal Court, has secured a
number 'of affidavits In support of tho
motion of his attornoys for a new trial.
Ono of tho claims mndo in tho support
of tho motion was that certain instruc
tions wcro given by tho Court to tho
jury in tflo absence of tho defendant.
The affidavit of A. P. Whlttaker, a Mc
Connolsvilo grocer, is filed in support
of this claim. Ho alleges that ho ac
companied tho defendant to tho Nell
nouso and Sraltho's Hotel on tho eyon-
,4p0f .Miarch,0 when tho, j'nrywas joutl
'tfnUtro case. G-.-IV'Hann.'jQf Morgan

that while ho was in tho cowci room
March 0 a juror slept andshud to bo
awakened by tho Court Bailiff. Ho
said tho juror was a stranger to him.
J. W. McElhiney, also of Morgan coun
ty, alleges that ho saw two jurors sleep
ing during the taking of testimony.
Prosecuting Attorney P. fl. Tannehlll,
of Morgan Count-, who was a witness
for Abbott in tho case, makes affidavit
that he saw three jurors asleep during
the taking of testimony, and while
they so slept two of them were awak
ened by the Court Bailiff.
Counter affidavits will be filed by
Prosecutor Dye and his assistants in
behalf of the state.

Wo are sorry we cannot promiso
more, but as it is often said in politics,
this seems to bo an "off year," and for
various reasons we are compelled to
make only this megre announcement
though, the one important fact, that
wo hayo been disappointed in a speak
er, Mr. John M. Guittcau, of Now York
City, who promised to bo with and ad
dress us, is of itself enough to compel
us to make just the following state
ment: There will be a business meeting on
ly of the friends of the 7th of April and
members of the Association, at the
Court House on Tuesday, April 7th,jt
11 o'clock a. m., for the transaction of
whatever business may come before
the meeting and for tho pleasant greet
