There is no use in saying that Garfield
Jiu never develop any enthusiasm. Listen
When Chittenden bad secured Garfield's
service for the Chicago paving ring, he
wrote to McClellan and Do Golyer as fol
lows: "To-day'i and to-nigbt'g work has
secured the assistance of Gen. Garfield.
Ton cannot overrate this occasion. Ho is
chairman of the committee on appropria
tions and holds the purse strings of the na
tional treasury. Through him must come
every dollar of appropriation. I need not
ay that I now feel certain of success."
Ths treasury department issues statistics
bowing that the excess of exports over im
ports of merchandise was for the month
ending May 31, 1880, $707,018, against
$16,979,214 for the same month of 1079.
The excess for the twelve months ending
May 81, 1880, wm $102,183,01). against
$209,883,610 the previous year. The ex
ports of gold and silver coin and bullion
exceeded the imports during the month
ending May 31, 1880, by $.183,204 against
' o excess or $883,503 during the corres
ponciiog month of the previous year. For
the twelve months ending May 31, 1860,
there wm an excess of imports of gold and
silver amounting to $74,231,242, while for
the preceding year the exports were in ex
cess to the extent ot $3,289,324.
The Republican dilemma is facetiously
described by the Philadelphia Tress as
"He ia no longer a boss, a bulldoser or
a triumvir; ho is not even sumiliurly callod
Don: he is Mister Cameron and Senator
Cameron, to bo spoken of only in tho most
respectful way and with bated oreatn.
Pennsylvania has become a doubtful state,
and only the hearty co-operation of the
Camcrons can resolve the doubts in favor
of tho Cnicago ticket. It is a case of "Help
me, Cassius, or I sink." But the young
senator still lolls on the pizzas of the great
southern Spa, and touches glusses with tho
Confederate brigiadicrs, catching the echo
of the Hancock boom that arc brought to
his ears by every mountain breeze, and
makes no sign. Ho will not even name his
terms. It is cruel, positively cruel. Nero
fiddling while Rome burned was nothing
to Cameron tippling sulphur water while
tho Republican party is sick into death
with the Hancock fever.
Charles Francis Adams tells a reporter
that he has seen nothing to alter his opin
ion 6ince he said that Gen. Hays' brow was
"branded with fraud." "I have no sort of
sympathy," he says, "with tho Republican
party because of that act, and because it
justified and sustained it. Alter such an
act I have no desire to sustain the Republi
can party in any way. Although, General
Garfield is a man whom I respect, I could
not vote for hiui on that
account. I could not vote
for a party that would carry through such a
fraud. I think Mr. Hayes was elected by
a fraud, and I do not mean to have it said
that at the next election I had forgotten it.
I have no enmity to Mr. Hayes, but after
the fraud by which he became president I
could not vote for any person put up fur
president on the Republican side who did
not disavow the fraud committed. I feel
that the counting out is just as much a
fraud now as at the time it was perpe
It is gratifying to observe that the 60Uth
is on the gain agriculturally. In every one of
the southern states the cultivated area is
increasing, and the lumber and cattle inter
ests are growing in importance. Texas is
especially vigorous in its growth, and while
according to Secretary Sherman, she yield
ed hardly enough revenue to cover expenses
three years ago, the surplus for March and
April last was $20,000,000. The Rural
New Yorker says regarding these figures
that "it is mainly to the heavy immigration
into the state and the enormous develop
ment of its agricultural resources that
these encouraging results must be
accredited. Not only has the Lone Star
state, ever since the war, been receiving
large additions to her population from
Europe and the north, but some sections of
the other southern states have been nearly
depopulated of all their best citizens who
have abandoned their worn out lands and
gone to build new homes on the virgin soil
of Texas. But although this state has had
the advantage of a heavier immigration
than any of her sisters, the energy which
has been the chief motor in her advance
ment is not confined within her borders,
but in late years has been more or less
characteristic of the entire south, especial
ly in the direction of its chief industry
agriculture." RAUM REPAID.
The decision rendered by Judges Drum-
mond and Treat, in the United States cir
cuit court at Springfield, on the 28th ult.,
in the cose ot Green 13. Haum ana John .
Mitchell, vs. the Cairo and Vincennes rail
road company and J. W. Drcxel and
Charles Ed. Tracy, receivers, determined a
point ot great importance to persons con
nected with railroad companies, and the
principle involved deserves to be widely
In 1873, Raum and Mitchell became
sureties for the railroad company at the re
quest of Gen. Burnsidc, its president, upon
an appeal bond in a case which was taken
to the supreme ...court of Illinois. While
the case was pending, the property of the
company was placed in the hands of re
ceivers, by order ot the circuit court of the
united States. The supreme court ot Illi
nois affirmed the judgment against the
company. In the meantime J.
Pierrepont Morgan had been elected
president of the the road. He,
in behalf of the company, declined to pay
the debt. Messrs Drexel and Tracy, trus
tees for the bond-holders, refused to pay it,
or see it paid, and J. L. Morgan, of London,
principal owner of the stock and Ixinds ot
the company, who had verbally promised
to see the judgement satisfied finally refused
to do so. Raum and Mitchell, as sureties
on his bond, were finally compelled to pay
the debt of the company. It appears that
at the time Raum and Mitchell became
sureties tho rolling-stock of the company
was unincumbered and have been
taken on execution. During the receiver
ship, and before the payment of the debt
by JUmii and Mitchell, the company, by its
president, tho trustees of the mortgaged
bondholders, J. 8. Morgan, as representa
tive of the bondholders, and the receivers
of the company united in a petition to the
court for authority to the receivers to bor
row money to pay taxes and make perma
nent improvements, and to sceuro the pay
ment of the sumo by a chattel mortgage on
tho Tolling stick. The court allowed this
to be done, and at the end of tho year the
rolling stock was sold for about one
fourth of its valne to py tho loan, J. L.
Morgan becoming the purchaser. Raum
and Mitchell objected in court to the exe
cution of the mortgage and tho order ap
proving the sale of the property, and filed
a petition setting up all the foregoing facts,
and praying for an order requiring the re
ceivers to pay their debt. It also appears
that alxmt $123,000 of borrowed money
and surplus earnings ot the road have been
put into permanent improvements.
After five years' delay the case came on
for trial. Upon a statement of the facts,
Judge Drummond announced that ho bad
held, and would continue to hold until his
decision should bo reversed by the supremo
court of the United States, that where a
surety upon an appeal bond of a railroad
company was compelled to pay the debt,
the property of the company being in the
hands of receivers, and subject to the or
ders of his court, ho would require the pay
ment of the debt as a preferred claim. It
was insisted by the counsel for the railroad
company that this debt of Raum and
Mitehcll was not a lien upon any ol tho
property held by the receivers, and there
fore that it was unjust to give them prefer
ence over tho first-mortgage bondholders.
Judge Drommond replied that it was es
sential for tho protection of the rights of a
railroad company, its stockholders and
bondholders, that it should have the power
to litigate cases in the courts of final resort,
and this right could only bo secure by in
ducing persons, who often were not inter
ested in the property of the company, to
become sureties on the appeal bond, and ho
cited the case of Fosdick ct al. vs. Schall
(99 U. S. Report, 248).
Judgment was rendered for the peti
tioners for $53,999 56 and costs.

120 BROADWAY NEW YOIilC
The Popularity of the Equitable Life Assurance Society,
indicated by the fact that for Eleyen years its average an
nual New Business has been larger than that of any other
Company in the world, is due, in a great measure, to its well
known promptness in the payment of Death Claims, audits
rule never to take advantage of technicalities where an
equitable claim exists.
As a GUARANTEE of this, and to counteract the perni
cious influence of a technical policy, adhered to by many
companies, the Equitable makes ALL ITS POLICIES, old and
new, throughout the United States,
After the policy has been in force for three years.
" The Equitable Life has paid since its organ
ization to January 1st, 1880, 51,882,736, and
closed its books upon that date without a con
tested or past due claim."
