Incomplete, but .sufficient Is known to def

ably reach figures far in excess of these.
The spirit of honest government, loyalty
and equal rights have sjiokcn. and have

erred In these respects may take heed.
These sentiments have no place among the
people of O' lo.
The result in Xew York stite is still In

republican ticket Is defeated by a small
majority. Pennsylvania takfs her accus

Improvement of Country Towns.
Some time nro I had ixrasion to call at
tention to the shady business transaction
of a number of syndicates of sharpen,
whose plan of operations has l?en to
secure franchises for public improvements
from interior towns and cities, which thev
have hawked alMiut in Xcw York city and
sold to .syrdicatcs. These syndicates
would prore id to build rickety street car
lines or faulty water works sjhU'ms, with
the sole object in view of -ellin the stock
and Kinds of the companies. The towns
and cities which Imve granted such fran
chises without thorough Inve-tiation of
the creilit uf persons appljing for them
have almost invariably been supplied witli
faulty systems of public improvements.
This sort of thing has been carried on to
such nn extent as toproduce a reaction,
and now- encouragement has been given to
solid investors to enter upon solid lines ui
An extensive contractor for the ccr
struction of water works remarked: .!.
great deal of solid investment is taking
place in the improvement of towns and
cities over the country, where within a
few years it has lieen the custom to mae
such itrorovements merely for the sale of
stock ai.J bonds. The day for that kind
of wildcat work has gone by. Men with
money have discovered that in the con
struction of solid anil substantial public
improvement in growing places there 1j
ample remuneration in 3 legitimate way
Itercntly I have constructed a number or
waterworks systems for syndicates cf
capitalists, who have put "their money
in these sv steins for permanent in
vestment, and could ntt be induced to sell
a dollar of the stocks or bonds. In doing
work for this class of investors I have
found that they are saMsflcil with nothing
but the best, indicating therein their pur
pose to make long investmcnLs. In some
instances these syndicates have gone into
towns and cities where faulty public im
provements exi.ted. have lmiight up the
ttock of the oh' concerns, reorganized the
companies, and then reconstructed every
thing. This is good work for the entire
country." Cor Xew York Tribune.

a log cabin. His early life was spent on
the farm, where he had few of the advan

When barely sixteen years of age, on
July 4. 1S02, he enlisted as private In com
pany A. Eighty-ninth O. V. I., being the
lirst man mustered Into his regiment, and
went at once into active service. He was
engaged in thirteen battles before he was
nineteen years old, and distinguished him
self for his bravery and gallantry in all of
them. This bravery and devotion to duly
won rapid promotion for him, and on Jan

For two years he studied at the Wes
leyan University at Delaware. O., and
then went to Cornell University, gradu
ating from that institution July, 1809. In
addition to taking the full classical course
of the university, he had devoted his
spare time for the last two jears of his
course in studying law, and with such
success that In the fall of 1C9 he was ad
mitted to the bar In Cincinnati, and at once
entered into activ e practice and was suc
cessful as a law er until he was elected
judge of the superior court of Cincinnati
ui lsT'.i. He served for three years, and
then resigned on account of temporary ill
health. In so high respect was he held by
the bar of Cincinnati that the lawyers with
out regard to politics joined In a petition to

Homeless and without root to protect them.
Governor Foraker promptly forwardd

later lie distinguished himself by the
promptness with which he responded to
the appeal of the veterans of the country
to oppose President Clevelan's order
fiat the rebel flags be restored
to to representatives of the "Con
federate states." Governor Foraker im
mediately telegraphed to Washington or
dering legal proceedings to enjoin Presi
dent Cleveland from his illegal act, and
the president was forced to back down and
rescind the order for which he had no legal
authority. It was at this time that Gov
ernor Foraker responded to a message from
It. Carson, of Hillsboro, O., sending the
memorable telegram: "No rebel Hags will
be surrendered while I am governor. "
By his course in the rebel flag matter
Governor Foraker has earned the enmity
of President Cleveland, and is no doubt
more thoroughly hated by that gentleman
and his intimate friends than any other
man now In public life.

county, Ohio, in- the year 1844, and
worked on a farm until 1862, when, nt
the age of eighteen, he enlisted in Com

second regiment, O. V. I., and served
with that regiment, participating in all
of its battles, until August, 18G4, when
at the battle of Peach Tree Creek, near
Atlanta, Ga., he lost his leg. In the year
1867, at the age of twenty-three, Mr.
Brown was elected treasurer of Jefferson
county, being the youngest treasurer
ever elected in that county. In 1869 he
was re-elected, and in 1875 was again
elected, and re-elected in 1877 to the
same office by the Republicans of his
county. In ltjSo he was elected treasurer
of state by over 20,000 majority, and is
now serving faithfully his first term.
From the time he cast his first vote for
the Republican ticket he has always
been an anient and hard-working Repub

enemy with a pleasant expression of
countenance, and, having thus thrown
him oil his guard, to strike him n heavy
blow in the face, and keep at it until he
wa lieaten. Messrs. nay and Sprigg
afterward quarreled, and met by accident
at the hotel, in a room occupied by a
