CAMPBELL HIS SPECIAL MESSAGE TO THE OHIO GENERAL ASSEMBLY. HE STRIKES FROM THE SHOULDER. The Deplorable Condition of Public Affairs in Cincinnati. OFFICIALS TRAFFIC IN THEIR OWN VOTES. Even "Houer Amssg Thieves," Says the Governor, Has Been Forgolten. Want of Popular Oenfidenee, E.TKCUTIVH ClUMBKIt, COLUMnUS. Ohio, Oct. II. The following Is tlto BFcdal message of Governor Campbell to the General Assembly: "The extra ordinary power of calling a special cession of your honorable body has been Invoked on account of the deplorable condition of public affairs In the city of Cincinnati, which, It is believed, can bo Barllally remedied by onabllnz the peo ple of that city to choose certain Im portant boards at the approaching No vember election. Tho time for bogtn nlnR the work of official reform thera has come, and for this latttllble purpose you are asked to submit to temporary Inconvenience. Tho legislation pro posed is so simple, and obviously so just, that It is hoped you may bo able speedily to resume your customary pur suits. "It Is almost unnecessary to rcclto the corrupt practices which havo ex isted in tho city of Cincinnati. Mem bets of public bottles havo trafficked In their own votes without shanto nnd with i mail pretenso of concealment. A suit letwccn altcgcd bribetakers U pending In court for an equal division of brnlv ; act! honor among thlovcs has been forgotten In tho fierce struggle to tlrspoll the people. With n fow honor able exceptions, tho entire public sc i vice Is demoralized. "ln tho Inaugural Address delivered to you last January you were advlso I that, 'in Justice to tho people of that city, as well as In furtherance of sound po litical principles, you hould carefully consider, mature and formulate n charter which would give them an op portunity to manage thoir own affairs through officers chonn by thtmnlMi.' This recommendation is earnestly ro nc wed. At jour next session, it Is hoped an improved charter will be granted that city. "The legislation enacted by you look ing to changes In the government of Cincinnati merely created tho Hoard of Public Improvements and the Decennial Hoard of Equalization. In both cases, however, you omitted to provide that the people should choose these very im portant bodies, although a majority of each house in the General Assembly was elected upon a platform which de clares that 'ue tltmaiul Iht ttutcliMHt of Uttrt that tfiti 4HubU our citm Ut chom thtir uttH ttrrnuh.' "The itoard of Public Improvements thus created was clothed with subitnn tlally the same no vers as Its predeces sors. The only improvement In its con struction was a provision that the mem bers, although originally appointed by the Governor, should lie subsequently elected by the people. This advantage was offset by the failure to empower the Governor to remove his appointee should they prove to be InerUclent or dlshouest. A change for the worse was a provision that three members Instead of four could transact business, thus en abling theni to unite and control public affairs. "The present board entered upon its duties under favorable auspices. Al though It was soon subjected to criti cism (much of it unjust) tor Its manage ment of the water works, it was, la the min, a eit-meanlag awl honestly conducted body. Eater, however, it retrograded rapidly. Certain members vuii d hi grant valuable franehlas in such unseemly haste, and so clearly in viuIatb'B of public interest, that the people began to suspect their integrity. " f bene suspicions have since become moie ttrudy fixed. As early as Sep tember 1 a leading newspaper of the elly, representing the political party to hkn a maturity of the board adhered, when speaking of an important fran chise which had been a ranted (although parlies stood ready to pay the city hand somely for such a franchise), said that it horn 'tcidtiui of frtnuiuUsHt intent to it uidfur Us 'j.riju of b' ttckmitiliivj i.cUiiay wrpuMttoiu.' "Again, on September 19, the sme aewsttapersaid: 'Thus would the city grant a franchUe of inestimable value for a mess of pottaae, leitU the prie'Ug " " '" " 'A;A fa u,jut'ii 't to a eang of Eastern people, who hav ' educed to a science the raiding of legitimate enterprises.' "The newspaper of opposite politi cal Uw have been equally unsparing and uioie continuous in their denuncia tions. Popular coe&leace in the board is gone, although (through pflrtiHH in kreatcd in ha enormous patronage) an alien pi way be wade to deceive the General a saw hly- The people of Ctnctaaiaii who am not personally in terested in the hoard or its employe are practically iinnniwftus ht the belief that sossii of its inesjahetf were parties to corrupt propositions which have been fflniitff $0 yvtvm having hualneai hn fore the "board. Dottbue member sjm! q between' will deny the uuth if theae reporU; hut, whether they he true or not, these members are so deeply involved and so universally iw pngnd, thai the pnblU' give xentiy crpdenAse to we g n thiti tfcmlwi stiirWt of this character, and even worse, which nie fitful elftd elsewhere. In short, the people beUeve. not without renonnbhf cnune, that tkia biMtrd has begun to uavel the path so long trad dans by other diimi'M til governing bodies of that city.

He that as it may, It Is quite certain that some of the members have ttnsv.ny reputations in connection with other tv matters, and that the board does not In spire confidence. It beelm Its career amidst a storm of public indignation. "Both of these boards should 1 abolished. Their creation by appoint ment was but depriving the people of their rights. The boards tltemelves are failures. Nothing remans but to undo that which has already been done. Let the law-making power and the ap pointing power confess their mistakes and join hands to rectify them. Hestore to lite people In time for the approaeh Ine November election the power of choosing successors to these boards. In the aroused state of public feeling, growing out of recent exposures, the feople of Cincinnati may be de pended upon to olect capable and trust worthy olllcers. They are In the mood to rise to the occasion. They should be i ncoursgetl. If this expectation be realized and good olllccn be selected now. It will doubtless be the commence ment of a lasting change for the better. A wise observer of large experience re cently said, and said truly, that Cincin nati was cursed with n lower moral tone In politics than that which af flicted any of tho othor great cities of tho country. Now, while the people aro awake to their condition, let us re turn to 'Home Iltilo' let us do that which Is always right, and which, at this particular juncture, Is an ospeclol necessity. "Who can object to this? Certainty no one opposes restoring power to the people, fiom whom all of tts receive our temporary authority. Can It bo that there aro persons upon these boards who are ashamed, or afraid, to go to tho people for their vindication? If the gentlemen thus legislated out aro honest men, nnd enjoy anil tie serve tho confidence of tho people, they will welcome the opportunity for n popular election to tho posts they now hold by appointment; but If they have been unfaithful and unde serving, then will they bo unwilling to render an account of their stewardship or let tho pcoplo pass upon It at the polls. Should they shrink from sub mitting their claims to the people, whom they nre sworn to serve, that N, la itself, n lull confession of Incapacity or guilt. "Let tho arbitrament of the ballot tie tcimlno whether they possess the confl dence of the people. No other tribunal can settle that quostlott: no other Is over K light by men conclotn of sarvlces well performed, or duty faithfully dls cbarcid." CoLUSiitt'S.

Tho ItcporU or Other L'auiri fur Hie lluiituto I'lunounctil Unrounded by (lie lUJrcted .Suitor, .tnntliur Ituuiur. Svkacusr, Oct. II. The engagement of Jllsa "Winnie Davis, the "Daughter of the Confederacy," to Alfred Wilkin son of Syracuse, which was announced a little more than six months ago and which created such interest In all parts of the country, is not to result In a wed ding. This statement came from the lips of Mr. Wilkinson yesterday after noon. The first intimation received that the engagement was broken came from Xew Orleans about a week ago, and then it was simply sent out as a rumor. At that time Mr. Wilkinson and members of his family would neither affirm nor deny the report. Various reasons were advanced as to the rupture between Miss Davis ami Mr. Wilkinson, the chief being that it was the young lady 'a desire that the engagement be broken on ac count of Mr. W ilkinson's nauaclal pros pect. Mr. Wilkinson's statement to a Phil adelphU imt corresnondeat yesterday g:es to show as muck. He said that he wa averse to waking any statement, but tuch conflicting reports were being sent out that he deemed it only justice to Hiss Davis to say that the engage nuet was broken at her request, ami that It was on account of her ill health. It teems from his statement that Miss Davis has not been in good health for some lime and she went abroad for the purpose of recruiting her strength. Her trip was beneficial, but did not restore her fully to health. Her mother and intimate friends felt that under tke cir cumstances it were heat that the pros pective marriage should he annulled, and this step was reluctantly taken by Miss Davis. There U general regret here that the match will not take place, inasmuch as it would have been onn of the most re warkabw and romantic on record. It is claimed by some that the engagement has been broken o on accouut of a strung inrluence brought to bear by pnanlncat Southern gentlemen who have looked forward to iltes Dsvis be ing wed to a gentleman of the Southern States. ilr.

"Kind hearts are more than coronets, and simple faith than Norman blood," wng the sentiment that Inspired Lady Dlanche Elizabeth Mary Annunclata Noel, oldest child of the Karl of Gains borough, ono of England's proudest peers, to forsake her eminent social sta tion, a luxuriant home In Rutlandshire, tovlng relatives and warm friends to elope with Thomas P. Murphy, the pen niless organist of her father's chapel. She died In a foreign land, nnd the husband for whom she sacrificed every thing breathed his last In a Itoston hos pital last Sunday. Such n genuine romance Is rarely found outside the covers of a novel. Murphy was born In London, of Irish parents, nnd was left nn orphan at an eaily age. Ho was cared for by Cath olic clergymen who were Interested In his musical talents. Through tho ofllccsof those kind men young Murphy beenmo the protege of a wealthy Catholic dowager In London. She sent him to Ltlpslc to begin at tho rcot of his art, and later had him schooled In the famous conservatory of mimic In Iliusscls. There he was graduated with honor.

Tho dowager and Murphy's old friends, the pi tests, had him appointed oreantst nt the Church of llrompton OtHtor, the most Inllueutlal place nf Catholic worship In Loudon. The organ was built for the coronation of Grnrge III. and was old fashioned, and Muiphy soon found that he was not strong enough to perform upon It. As It was ruining his health he resolved to tcslgn. At that time the llrompton Fathers received three applications for organists. One came from the Ktrl of Kenmire, the iccond from the lllihnp of Ardargh and the third from Lord Galasboroiitrh. Murphy was given his choice and se lected the p ttltlon In Kngland, for the reason that It was nearer home. He was then about 30 years old, short in statue, slender, blue-eyed and with a jK.ll of curling blonde hair. His Intel lectual attainments were not numerous, his whole time having been entirely de voted to the study of music- Ladv lllanche was the daughter of Lord Gainsborough ami the Duchess of Fife and waa the seventeenth grand daughter of the Karl of Krrol. She was a highly cultivated woman, a rloe lin guist and skilled musleian. When young Murphy came to her father's estate, Huxam Ilarl, Ilutlaedshlre, she was twenty four years old. Her figure was petite, her eyes were blue and her hair golden. Many noblemen had paid court to her. but she was fancy free. She led the chapel choir, composed of tenants on her father's estate. liebearsaki gave the musician and his employer's fair daughter ample opportunities for flirta tions that ended In love making. Tnny concealed their affection for months, until her father learned the true state of affairs and Intimated to Murphy that bis resignation would be acceptable. Murphy wanted to explain, but was politely ushered to the family carriage ami driven to the nearest railway station, ami went to London, ltefore kg the lovers began eomiucling a clandestine correspondence that ti eaily iesulied In the making of a rendezvous in Locdon. In September, on the Kail of Galns boriugn'a estate, the annual harvest festival was celebrated with wtae nd wassail, nnd he sat at the tnbln for hours with his tenants and neighbors. Lady lllanche had shrewdly ited on this time of festivity to fly to her sweet heart in London. She left her home au'red in a house maid's frock and cloak, walked three miles across flnlds to the railway station and a few hours later joined Xurphy in London. Lady IJIanche's disappearance was discovered, but her father's loyalty to custom ken him at the head of the banquet table until midnight, when he sent teWgiatna dying from We&am to the London detectives. The lovers were found on the ve of their marriage, and the Karl offered the organise a handsome nuuity, if he would leave tier Ladyship go to the Continent. This offer Murphy declined, and his wife told her father thai, if her att acced had consented, she would have entered a eon vent.

The TJaltlmore and Ohio Hallway Company was charged with a violation of the District law In having obstructed Noith Capitol street in laying a track and leaving ties. The warrant airnlnat the company was obtained by Oillcer Kemmcll. It was admitted by George II. Hamilton, the attorney of the II it t). Ompany, that ihe facts as com plained of existed, but he held In his argument that by the Congressional set of 1KI1 and a supplemental art of IM'.j tbty had a perfic' right to do ex actly what they had tlono. They had In no way tried to Interfere with the grade of the street. They simply wanted to lay an additional track across the ttieet on thtir own property ami along side of other tracks that were levllng Into their pssienger depot. Their passenger traffic hsd Increased to such au extent that there was an actusl de mand for this track. A compact made with the District In 1835 gave the com pany n perfect right to lay as many tracks as they desired on their prop erly. Mr. Hamilton raised the question as to whether the case came under po lice jurlidlctiuH or whether It ought not be left to the construction of the statutes. Mr. Dumont argued that the com pany had, without a neceasiry permit, gone ahead and obstructed North Capitol street, and he questioned whether the supplemental act of 115 was equivalent to the granting of a per mit to obstruct the streets that they crossed, TUe matter came up under police regulations and the gumt crimi nal act, and he did not see that the statute could give the cuupauy hd permis sion or right to violate such regulations. Mr. Hamilton, in conclusion, said that ft waa not necessary, as they bad vcty frequently been told to procure a permit. This was the tirst time that the company hail bcenlnteifered with. The pollen regulations referred more par ticularly to temporary obstructions such as leaving piles of material, a dangerous giade or cirs upon the street crossings. Mr. Dumont reiterated again that thn whole matter hinged on whether the company bad or had not obstructed North Capitol street. "Had the railway company de murred," said Judge Mills, "1 should have ruled tbat Ihe court had so juris diction. The rights of both the people of the District and that of the railway company nre Involved. I am restricted to the bar facts as to whether thn laying of this track is a violation of Ike police regulation. There Is nothing in the net that so far as 1 can sen covers this offense. I hnve pet tonal knowledge that Korth Capitol street Is impassable at this point, and the laying of thn track docs not Inter file with travel. Under thn rlfib see lion of the net of 1833 thn conynny hs a right to lay this track, nnd the case dismissed." MtHOJKK? COLLElTOK.
