Thk Orant journals treat tho $200,000
defalcation of Johnson in tho Now York
sub-treasury as a stunll matter, claiming
that tho government will loso nothing, for
assistant treasurer Uillhouie must make
good the deficiency. Whorcupon the Now
York 'Journal of Commerce' is moved to
inquire "whether the funds stolon from
the money-ordor branch of tho New York
post-office, some time ago, wore ever re-
1 imbursed to the government, through the
'bondsmonof tbo robber?" "Wo havo
'never heard,' adds tho 'Journal,' "of the
'settlement having bcenmado; and it is
one of those facts tbnt would not be kept
out of point."
Simultaneously anothor'Kew York jour
nal inquires whether any attompt bas ynt
bocn made to save tbo government from
heavy lots by the defalcation of Collector
Bailey, one of whoso bondsmen is the fa
mous administration unancier, uenry
Clows. Following this might he put the
general inquiry, whether there is on re
cord on slnglo authenticated instance
where tbo bondsmen of government de
faulters havo been compelled to make
his obligation good. If thero is, name the
man, wo never heard of him.
THE Bourbon democracy havo gono
through tho form of appointing a state
central committee for New York, and
havo ii.ued an addross. The committee
consists of three members " at large " and
two from each judicial district. We fall
to discover a fatoilUr name upon the list.
Hos. H. Watson Webb is out of the
race for tbo county attorneyship. Wo
regret the withdrawal of Mr. Webb as it
leaves tbo Liberal ticket incomplete. The
idea of an uncompromising Radical se
curing office In a Democratic county
without opposition Is not a pleasing one
to say the least of it.
Ms. Bkick I'omkkoy's business mana

Another posltlvo refusal from O'Conor is
now in order, and it will probably be
forthcoming angrily, but tho truth Is, the
subject has Install interest to the public.
Davk Linegar is po.ted for a speech in

If David was honest then ho Is dishonest
now; if he Is honest now ho was dishon

ORGANIZE I
The Greeloyitcs of Alexander county
begin to appreciate the necessity for earn
est, active work. Tbey seo the Grantites,
nder the lead of the office-holders, the
men who, for the time being aro pensioned
upon tho government fully organized
every man of tbem a member of a club,
working like a beaver and chattering like
a roagpio for the causo and the candidates.
And seeing this, tbo friends of Greeley
understand that thev cannot and must
not longer remain idle.
Tho step taken two weeks ago toward
organization was well taken. Threo hun
dred voters enrolled their names as mem
bers of the Greeley and Brown club. Tho
club met on Wednesday night last, and
the court room was crowded
almost to discomfort. Over
sixty new mo rubers were obtained most
of them being of tbo "bone and sinew" of
the city men who aro earnest and who
act from no selfish or ambitious motives.
Let the recognized leaders of the party
now bestir themselves. Proper effort on
their part will, boforo tho 13th day of Oc.
tober, swell the membership of the club to
a clear majority of all tho voters In the
city.
The second meeting of the club will be
held on Wednesday evening next. At
that time its officers should and duubtless
will, present a plan for a vigorous and ef
fective prosecution of the campaign.
There is no time to fritter away now
Every friend of tbo Liberal causo is ex
pected to do his duty to give
of his time and of his money
to effect a thorough organization. It is
the one great thing needed now
and tho leaders, those who have profited
by tbo party's success, as well as those who
expect to do so, roust throw a little moro
vim into the canvass, Tho masses look to
thorn to lead in tbo work of organization,
and will hold them responsible should
thoy fnll to do so. Tho time for trifling
has passed. Vigilance, industry, ceaseless
work are called for and must bo exercised
and expended. To your posts, then, Groe-
loyitos overy man to his duty.
Oioisok W. Wall, tho Liberal Demo
cratio candidate for Congress in this dis.
tricl is making a vigorous and effective
canvass. Largo crowds groet bim at
every point, and, his speeches to them aro
invariably able, .earnest and telling. In
Johnson county, last week, bo addressed
ft m audience of not leu than' 2,000 persons.
At tne close of his speech he was sur
rounded by voters who although they

Mr. ureeiey, on uemg introduced said:
People of Indiana: The distin-
gushed gentleman wbohasjuit addressed
you has pronounced tho two wulch words
of the present canvass. Tbo first is rec
onciliation, and the second is purification.
I propose to speak, to-night, in tho inter
est of purification. Our country 1ms re
cently encountered and vanquished the
the poril or disunion, she is to-day con
fronted with the deadly peril of corrutw
tlon, the cancer which is eating her vitals,
whereof tho essence is purchased legisla
tion, bribed public servants, and servile
betrayals of tbo highest trust. Thoso are
thu elements. Let mo endeavor to lllut-
tiato her present peril by simply recount
ing to beyond denial ami by undeniable.
facts, which illustrato the history of leg
islation by congress with reference, to the
Union Pacific railway. I would tlx vour
attention vn this as a sample of tho means
whereby scheming. selfish, avaricious,
men contrive to glut their own greed
while they talk of public interest and pub
lic beneficence. Ten years ago congress
passed an act chartering the Union Pacific
railway. ina; act was Intended and cal
culated to secure connection bv railway of
our Pacific with our Atlantic States. A
noble purpose, and one which cannot but
bn strongly commcded, as it was. Certain
tbat private capital would not build a
road through 2.000 miles of montaln and
desert, congress resolved to aid that enter
prise generously. In tho first place the
right of way through the public lands was
granted, with the right also to take mate
rial irom any part or tbo public domain.
Next, a large grant was in aid of the Pa
cific railroad, and bonds of the govern
ment to the extent of over $25,000 per
mile were loaned to the company in aid of
this project, and the first mortgage on the
railroad taken therefor. It was thus pro
vided that tbo road should be built with
public money for the public
Alter a fow years this project,
having passed into the bands of capable,
grasping men, some of whom were mem
bers of congress, a new step was taken.
Congress was induced to authorize a new
loan in aid ol this project, and an equal
amount of tho government aid, that is to
the extent of at least $35,000 per mile, and
this now loan was authorized to take pre
cedence of the government loan. In
other words, congress relinquished our first
mortgage on ino roau ana took a second
mortgage, authorizing the company to
make a first mortgage of eoual amount
ahead of ours. Jow, then, our security
was destroyed by this way, so that our In
vestment was to be of no avail. In a lit
tle whilo a private company was some
where chartered, entitled tho Credit Mo
bilicr of America, and that private com
pany or ring was composed of a lot of ac
tive members of tho Union Pacific rail
road company, somo of them members of
congress. No list of the stockholders of
this Credit Mobilier was ever published or
can bo obtalnod. But these irentlomen
proceeded tomako contracts virtually with

were uiviueu among tho parties, and after

wero called upon to pay, they divided the

through congress this project of making

mu man, aim mo provision, dec, for

company said no. Thoy said, wo want

sequenny, in March, 1B71, by an nmond

instructed to pay ovor to these companies
half the money thoy earned by carrying
tho malls and armies, and only reserving
half thoso earnings toward the payment

that tho leading mon in our government,
tho men who are speakers and member"

and this is provod by tho letters of Oakos

and a largo stockholder In tho Union

prove corruption, and corruption in hich

country aro paying some millions per
annum out of thalr hard earnings for In
tercat on these bonds loaned to tho Pacific
road, paying this money as Interest to
