ltullKKT J. Htt.I.!NOM.Y,
Tiie indignation of Mr. "Wilson at tl.ue
charge' was not concealed from any body.
Williams mid liillingsly sutl'ered for their
temerity. Oil' came their heads, "ot ratMled
with a vvrbal dellance. he submitted a lues-
sago to the council, in which lie spoko of the
chargei mado ngnlu.t the police in "a news
paper published in this city," and, demanding
investigation of tho charge', made serious
counter-charges against other mon which he
never substantiated. A committee, appointed
bv Mr. Wilson, with Jack Winter a chair
man, was rai-od to investigate tbe charge.
against Nowsome. Mr. Wilson appeared bo-
fore this committee, and acted more liko the
advocate of Mr. Newsomo than tho impartial
Judge. His ovidenco wa taken in behalf of
his chief officer, and Mr. inter was dually
compelled to report that tho evidence was
conflicting, adding however, that the member
o the committer, "are jtoaitiw in their minds
that there was yuol ground Jor the complaint.
Here tho matter would have dropjied, and
Mr. Wilnun would havo retained New
somo in office, but the grand jury of the coun
ty took up tho matter and found a bill of in
dictment against tho culprit for an infamous
crime. KWi then, Mr. II ilson did nut remove
XcHwme from ojiee, hut acceI'TKR his ki:
sio.v.iTioN, and ho decamped for parts un
known. Wo do not sav Mr. Wilson know Mr. Now-
some to bo ti diahoiiost man, but it was his du
ty tu know his officers ; and, in becoming tho
defender of this unworthy man, ho commit
ted a mistako for which ho .should bo held re
sponsible. From what wo can loam, New
tomo was a bad charactor; and how hu oamo lo
secure tho appointment us chlof of police has
always been a mystery to us. .Mr. Wilson
protends to bo opposed to what ho culls " car
pot baggers," and yot ho gavo to an unwor
thy follow, who had not been in tho city
many months, ono of the moU ru.poniblo
positions in his gift. Ofnn impulsive dispo
sition, lie contracts sudden and warm friend
ships, and wo can only -account for hit devo
tion to Nowsomo by tho belief that ho becanio
infatuated with him, and stood by hiui in
troublo like a true friend. This quality is to
bo admired in a private citizen; but no pub
lie officer, chnrged with tho welfare of the
people, should bo thu Damon of any Pythias,
as Wilson was of Nowsome.
Goimrul Sam. Cary will probably bo put up
for ijovernor by tho democrats of Ohio.
THURSDAY EVENING, FEBRUARY 18,
THE COMPENSATION ON WHICH MU,
WILSON BECAME TOO POOR TO
fci BITAIN THE POSITION
Over rm TsiaiuasUi Year.
In btsvalcdictory address, upon retiring
from tht pfficof mayor, Mrj jWilson said :
t l leave ike office a muih poorer man than1
when I took it ; and, in fact, have neither
'thcuish NOU THK MEANS to retain it
any longer." .
Lot us now too how Mr Wilson became
' Ho tookhKieat in Marcll,' 1805, wUV
salary of 500 per year, tho limit allowed by
the charter. Delng, in consequence of this
provision of the charter, .estopped from ob
taining an increase of his salary as major,
ho obtained $1,000 salary as chairman of tho
Board of Public Works, making his total
salary $1,500. This was in cash, and was
not too much. Hut let us go in n
littlo further. Tho result of the charter elec
tion of ieC5 was doctored ut a special meeting
of tho council held March C, and "Wilson bo-
camo mnvor. At tho regular meeting next
following tho special mooting, bills were pre
sented from Mr. AVilon for gunnels for street
crossinL's. 504. and coal for pump', i'0. At
tho April meeting bills, in tho aggregate,
$813; nnd, at each fiicceeding meeting, bills
for difl'crcnt amounts woro presented during
tho entiro year. Fooling up all theso bills
wo And, that, during the llrst year ho was
mayor, Mr. Wilson drew out j the tremury,
beside his salary, FIVE THOUSAND, FIVE
HUNDRED AND SIXTY-NINE HOL
LA KS AND KIOHTY-ONiK OK.NTS,
CASH; Wu'ei sum, uddrd tu ! salary,
thuus that hcobtuinrd from the ;.,, SEVEN
THOUSAND, SIXTY-NINE DOLLARS,
ElflHTY-ONK CENTS. Now, of i-our.'e,
most of this money w for article fur
nished, such a coal for pum and lumber
for sidewalks, and for the use of fiis teams ;
but Mr. Wilson, surely madu. omo profit,
and how he became so poor by
serving the city is a wonder and my.tery.
And, if ho could not livoi on that in
come, what cm ho now want with the office,
thu Hilary being only $1,000 in eitycripat,
say, fifty cents on tho dollar ? Why i he, bav
in!: impoverished himself in the service of tho
city during a year when ho obtained from
the treasury over coven thouaud dollars,
now Co anxious to ruin himself for $1,000
v.. fir in ii'rln? so anxious to do o. that ho
has bolted his party? so anxious to do co,
that ho has broken up personal frlenu.iiip :
We havo always admired .Mr. Wilson, nnd
aro surprised at his infatuation ; .urprised to
sco him rush at an ofllco out of which ho
once camo ti poorer man than ho entered it.
If it wero not that wo are anxious to prevent
Mr. Wilson from absolutely destroying liim
solf wo would regret the necessity which
compells us to retrain him from rushing in
the mayor's office at tho ensuing election.
THE HUNTED STAG.
Hiitv lit Turin it
nnil DtAt-il tin-
When the excitement alwut Mr. Wilson's
chief of police, Jacob Nowsome, was at its
height, in 18C5, Mr. Wilson wrote a mossagn
to tho council, the contents of which wo then
applauded loudly ani now cherish in our
memory. Offended at parties which lie did
not name, he' indulged in a phillipio against
corruption which was at onco forcible and
eloquent. "Tho jail,' he said, "has been uod
as a plaeoof torture to compel men to enlist l'i
the army and navy, and when human nature
could endure no more, they wire taken out by
the officers and fold, and either bogus bonds
or nothing left In their place. Fmnlc prinon
en mere taken out fur purjnes too vile to mtn
tion, and rcturnnl in the morning. In short
all tho horrors of thu Inquisition woru as
nothing compared to eoulliiomeut in those
cells; and whan you undertook to in
vestigate these dark aud villainous trans
actions, were not you answerod by
insults, jeers and threat, of per.oual injury '.'"
Apparently lnilieving that tho men
who had made thu Jail a torture pen
his enemies, aud the movers in tho at
tack ujion Newsome, whom ho believed a
pure man, .Mr. Wilson wont on to any: "Al
though I know thu dugs are on my trauk, and
that 1 am pursued by u bloodhound malig
nity, 1 wish them to distinctly understand,
that, ''" the hunted stag, I hare tut'Hfl at bay,
and I seom and d,fy fJum." This was good.
Having turned at bay, it was to have been
expected that ho would have exposed the deal
urs in human (lesh, tlio polluter of ba Jail
tho mon who had made it a torture pen.
Hunted htugs attack as wallas defend; and
having turned at bay, liko n hunted slug, we

There is k'fellow 'about X&wif named Ar
thur (aliat JTlnnagan) Boyli, who is making
himself very conspicuou w a villi Aer of Mr.
Oberly, the democratto candidate for mayor,
and a the friend of Mr. Wilson, the boltor'a
candidate. Indeed, ha prefeatei to be Mr.
Wilson's right bower,' a fact 'which, on Mr.
Wilson's account, we regrat In 1866, whon
Jack Winter ran against Mr. WiUon, who
was then tho democratic caadldaUfor mayor,
this samo fellow recoived money from Mr.
Wintor to bo expended in defeating Mr.
Wilson. On overy'street'eorser he abused
Mr. Wilson ; on eTaryoccaalom he llllsWd
him; in every possible manner attempted to
ruin his character. How the breach between
the two becanio closed up, wo do not know ;
but wo do know that, now, Boyle is tho prin
cipal advocate of Mr. Wilson In the present
Who is this Uoylo? An Irishman, who is
always tho ally of tho enemies of his coun
try. A loud-mouthed brawlor ho talks like n
pal rot, without knowlng.tho force of his lan
guage, nnd without any regard for tho truth.
A bricklayer by profession, ho is out of busi
ness , nnd in desperation has concluded to link
his fortune to thoso of Mr. Wilson, in tho
hope of obtaining a position on thu police
forco in tho event of that gentleman's elec
tion. Nuweonio was onco chief of police;
why, then, khould Uoylo despair of obtaining
tho samo place.
Wo do not like to bring up in Judgment
before any man thu ovents of the dead pa.t ;
but this 'man Ho'yle, courting notoriety, hns
been repeating throughout the city falsehoods
about -Mr. Oborly, which demand retaliation.
Let us, therefore, look into tho records of
thu city, and show up 31 r. Uoylo in his true
light. At tho September mooting of tho
Council, IBCj, Uoylo and his partners obtain
ed a contract from tho city to construct sow
ers at il 50 per lineal foot for small, and
$5 7.1 for large. The work was' done, and a
committee, of which Mr.. James Morris was
chairman, was raided to examine it. At tho
February meeting of tho council, 1800, this
eomniitlre reported that the sneers tcere con
structed oj inferior material, that there tcere
discrepancies betictcn the. bill and the terms of
the contract, in this, that the contract priceor
the small sewers teas Juiir dollars and fifty
cents per lineal oo,WHF.ltEASTHK CON
TltACTOKIl CHARGED FOUP. DOL
LARS AND SEVENTY-FIVE CENTS
PER FOOT, and also an increase in the
price of the larco sower. The committee
aho reported AN EXCESS IN THE MEAS
UREMENT OF THE WORK OF SEVEN
TEEN THOUSAND EIGHT JIUNDREL
AND SEVENTY-FOUR BRICK, and AN
OVER CHARGE OF NINE DOLLARS
AND FIFTY CENTS PER THOUSAND
ON ALL THE EXTRA WORK DONE.
The truthfulness of tho committee's report
wu, wo believe, never questioned, and how
tho matter camo to I as hushed up we do not
know. Mr. AVilson was mayor nt tho time,
and if he is much flattered now by tho sup
port of Mr. Uoylo ho is easily pleased.
