The Era-Illinoi.-an of a late date has the

The record in this suit shows tho follow
ing tacts: The suit was brought to the
Novemlicr term, 1871. On the Kith of
February, 1872, a verdict was rendered in
favor of plaintills fur $830.25. At the time
of entering tho verdict a motion for anew
trial was made by defendants which tho
court took under advisement until the next
term of tho court. At tho next term of tho
court, on tho 28th of May, 1872, tho court
overruled tho motion for a new trial. Upon
tho overruling of the motion for a new
trial, it was the duty ot tho clerk to
enter judgment upon tho verdict,
but from inadvertence ho failed to do so,
and, in point of fact, no judgment litis ever
been entered. Tlio judgment docket, book
1$, page HI), shows that a judgment was ren
dered on tho 10th of February, 1872, for tho
sum of $8:10.85; but, as just stated, no judg
luent was ever entered up. This judgment
docket shows that Thomas W. Logan paid
to William J. Allen, on account of tho sup
posed judgment, on tho 24th of December,
1871), the sum of $:)00", ou the 2d of April
1874, $100; and ou tho 4th of August, 1874
$25; making n total of $425. Execution
docket show that an execution was issue
on the 10th of June, 187H. Tlio execution,
however, was improperly Issued, for at that
time there was not, nor is there even now,
as already stated, uny judgment umiu which
an execution could properly Issue. It further
appear from tho record of tho deeds, that
on tho 1st day of April, 1873, just four days
after the motion tor a new trial was over
ruled, and at the time the clerk should have
eutered up tho judgment, M. A. Evans
mortgaged his entire property, he being tho
only solvent defendant. Vpon tho whole
case, it may bo observed that tho only ap
parent negligence on the part of Judge
Allen, was the failure to serve out an ex
ecution within a year from the time he sup
oscd, and had a right to suppos:1, a judg
ment had been entered, and yet it is quite
clear that the serving out ' of the execution
under tho circumstances within the year
would have availed nothing. Indeed, it was
unlawful to serve one out at all before
judgment was entered. It was clearly no
part of Allen's duty to watch the clerk and
see that he informed his duties properly iu
entering up the orders of the court. In
cast s at law like that, the most careful at
torney never draws up, or sees to the draw
ing up of judgments at law. It is nther
w is as to ilet rei s in equity. The whole
trouble, then lorw would m cm to bo an un
fortunate mistake of the clerk, which was
never discovered, as I suppos.1, until very
Sunatok TurnM-vX delivered a speech r.t
Athens, Ohio, on S.iinrd.ry hi-t. It is the
clearest exposition of the questions now
commanding uMio attention, that wo have
Siva anywhere, and should be in the hands
of every voter in this land. Speaking of
the money power, he said : "My second ob
jection to the National backing system i
thai i: tends to concentrate, combine find
intensify what is called the moin y power.
Tliat is the power of those who wie.d the
money capital in the Country. Now, don't
misunderstand me. If I know myself, I
am not, ana never nave U- m, ami never
will le, a demagogue. There is something
in my nature that revolts at the idea. If I
am ever apparently demagogical. I am a s.-lf-deieived
man, f t I never intend to !o.
I have, therefore, no declamation to pout
out ln-fore you againt money capital.
I have no w ar to make upon capital hon
estly made, none whatever. No country can
U- rich and prosperous without capital, and
I am not the man to make an assault upon
capital honestly acquired. But I do say,
my friends., that of the influences in this or
any other country, wlk-re free institutions
exist, that inllm nce which is to be most
jealonsly watched and guarded 0g;;ilist is
the influence of this very money power.
Let us for a moment compare, the intlu
ence it exerts with the influence exerted by
the farming portion of the community.
Very much tho largest proportion of the
wealth of this country is in the land, the
flocks and cn;w; much the largest propor
tion of our community are men who are
making tln-ir living by delving into the
soil the farmers and agricultural laborers
of tho country. And w hen did uny one
of you ever s-o them lobbying about the
halls of n legislature or of the congress of
the United Mat- s to yet laws for their own
pecial benefit, that shall give them privi
leges other men do not posses' Are there
any such men here? As one of your repre
sentatives for nine years in tho senate of the
United States, I have never seen
there an agricultural lobbyist in all
that time, while I have seen hundreds of
men lobbying iu the interest of the money
capital of the country; ami yet, my friends,
Mr. Secretary Sherman, in bis late speech
at Toledo, says that I am quite wrong in
thinking that there is any danger from
concentrated money capital that it is tho
weakest influence in the world. I really
lo think that it is he, and nut I, who is
wrong. Without going any further back

that much to your indebtedness? What in
terest, pray, was it that made the five-twenty
bonds, which by tho law were payable in
greenbacks, by an alteration ot the law pay
able in coin? That was the very first act of
General (irant administration. Was not
that brought about by influeuceof tho mon
ey power? What influence was it that de
monetized silver? Was it not the inllueiico
of the money power? What influence s it
that has steadily contracted the currency
for so litany years, thereby appreciating
the value of money and making its pur
chasing .power far greater than it used to be,
while the purchasing power of every thing
else remains as it was or has diminished?
Was it not the money power? Did the fann
ers of Athens counly go to congress and
ask It to pass these measures? Not one of
them. Did any farmers ever petition con
gress for uny such purpose, or any mecliiinlc.?
Not 0110 of thoin, Who was it put this
measure through but this combined money
power, which Mr, Sherman thinks is the
weakest power In the whole country,
Oh, my friends, that won't do. Why,
there are old men hero before me for I see
gray hairs arc plenty hero thero are old
mcu,hcre who remember when tho people
of this country stood alarmed at tho ex
istence of a little national bank that had
only $:)5.n0iyi00 capital, with a few
branches here and there, and when they
supported Old Hickory Jackson in declar
ing '"by the eternal," that banks should
cease to exist. And now, when wo have two
thousand national banks with, not a capital
of $45,000,000, but a ;npitnl of nearly $500,.
000,000, and with a capacity to multiply
ami increase their power over the country
indefinitely, if the system bo continued, we
are asked to believe that this money power
is the most infantile, helpless, weak thing to
be found on the face of the earth? (Laugh
ter. It won't do, gentlemen. A third ob
jection to tho national bank system Is that
it is a special privilege which they
enjoy, and that no other institutions or
no individuals enjoy a special privilege that
puts annually millions of dollars into the
IHxkets of their shareholders and takes
millions of dollars out of the pockets of the
people. Let me explain this: The nation
al bank circulation is in round numlx'rs
$322,000,000. It is safe to mv, I think,
that $'!OO,O00.000 of it is loaned at an
average rate of nof less than vvcn per cent
interest per annum. That makes $21,000,
000 that tho:v banks roo ive
every year for the Use of their
paper as a circulating medium. Now, my
friends, observe how this reverses the order
of things. The gi in ral rule is that a man
pays interest upon what he owes, and he
can be compelled, if luccssary, in the courts
of justice to do so. But in the case of a
bank note this rule is reversed. The note
of the bank is an evidence of a debt due.
It is not money, it is not capital ; it is simply
a debt due by the bank ; but the bank is
authorized to lend that note and receive in
terest upon it. So that the bank is author
ized to receive interest on what it owes,
while everyody else is obliged to pay in
terest 011 what he owes. You see what a
privilege this is, and this privilege enables
them to draw from the xxkcts of tho peo
ple Jf.'l.uoo.uoo every year more than it
took to carry on the whole government
under the admini-fratiui of General
