THE REVENUE QUESTION. I p)
81'EiNcnELD. Mutch 12,-Thle morning the :
subject of revenue came up in the Houee, and.
without discussion, and by u fair majority, the ,j.
House hill was passed over and the Senate bill j lb
taken up. This was partly owing to the absence
of Mr. Bbort and partly to the desire of many n
membero to get on a bill which had not been
discussed, and wae, therefore, fresher than Its T(
Tival. It also seemed as if it were getting a step 1
nearer u* me parr- *s*‘ «** mwa hill z but discus- | ei
Sion began wlihthe very first section. Com-
para speaking, Zthe provisions of this act | t ,
were not familiar to tbe members, and therefore | a:
there were frequent efforts to raise imaeined
defects which further examination showed did 1 e
uot exist, at least to any very great extent. It g
was at first thought that both the capital stock
of corporations, and also the property owned by f
them, were taxed; but when it was shown that b
only the excess of value, If any, of the capital I
stcck over the property, was taxed, the amend- I r
meat to strike out the taxation of capital stock j
was defeated by a small, but yet decisive, ma- | r
jovity, The amendment to strike out the Board |
of Equalization was also rejected, though it j
would not have been but for the desire ot some 1 (
members to pass the bill with as few amendments I f
as possible. Finally it became apparent, if jome- I
thing was not done, the old debfttes I
ne.wed, and days and weeks might be I •
in talk on this measure. Therefore, by a | .
common consent, which proves nothing as to its i
passage, the rales were suspended and the> bill I
ordered to a third readme. No vote wlll be taken I
on it till to-morrow or tb« d»y after. Objection J
was made to it by many Southern members, be
cause by it the Trea*i rer is made ex omcio ooi- i
lector instead of the Sheriff, and unless amend- |
ed In this respect it is difficult |
to see how it can bass. u I
it can get anywhere near 89 votes it will pass, I
for enough of peoi le will change and xote for it J
sooner than have no revenue at all. and thongs j
they may want no deduntions, yet for some rea- |
sou they will support the Senate Dill, with its J
al«ght deductions. Nearly, if not quite. aU of I
the Democrats will vote for it. and It will prob- J
ably pass. A majority of the Cook County
members will be apt to go against it. If It does I
not pass non© will, and then there will inevita- j
blr be another special session.
FEES AND SALARIES.
The Senate this morning pa*s c d the Fee ana j

property. rREE school bill. 1
The House consumed all tbo afternoon on tne
Free School bill, to which very few amendments |
were offered, and still fewer adopted. Tnoß 4 “al ,

Col. MORRISON called the attention of the

Mr. SANFORD was nnable to see that there
was any doable taxation in this respect.
The motion was lost.

EXECUTIVE MESSAGE.
A message frem the Governor was read, trans
mitting a oommunicatianfrom the Governor of
Indiana in relation to the removal of the Cam
met dam* expressing the opinion that it is the
duty of the mate to have it removed, it being
no longer needed.
REVENUE BILLS REBUSIED.
Several amendments were offered to the sec
tion relative to property exempt from taxation
and one or two were adopted. Among them was
one by Mr. Roberts, limiting t0525,000 the amount
of church property exempt from taxation, which
was tabled. ' _
Mr. ROOT moved to strike out of the section
relative to the rules for valuing personal prop
erty all in relation to the Board of Equalization.
He did not see that the Board was necessary, nor
bow it was able to equalize the value of capital
stock, it being a thin* of whioh the Assessor
alone was competent to decide. ‘ , _
Mr. CARPENTER agreed with Mr. Root as to
That point. The value of stock depended upon
things which were beyond the knowledge of a
Board of Equalization.
Mr. Sanford thought it oroedingly unsafe to
allow capital stock to be assessed by Town As
sessors. since it would lead to great confusion
and nifferences in assessments at present. Ha
wanted a Board of Equalization. It would be
impossible to find an Auditor who could stand up
under such a task if it wore pat on him.
Mr. CUNNINGHAM moved to strike out the
entire fourth clause of the section which gives
the Board of Equalization full power to deter
mine the value of capital stock, a provision
which he deemed putin for the sole benefit of
cojporationa. It would give the Board sole pow
er of taxation in that branch. He subsequently
withdrew his motion., * _ ,

THE CHICAGO TRIBUNE: WEDNESDAY, MARCH 13, 1872
The Revolution of Monday a
Gonld Formally Resigns His Po-
Action Token and Proposed by the
New Directory.
Special Despatch to The Chicago Tribune.
THE ERIE REVOLUTION.
New York, March 121— The confusion. and mul
tiplicity of rnmoro concerning the overthrow of
the Erie ring only increased last night up- to mid*
night, and It was far along toward morning be
fore the army of reporters succeeded in getting
their account* into something like coherence. In
reviewing the field of action, to-day, the revolu
tion in the affairs of : Erie amounts. In
all, to a revolt and coup d’etat
suddenly sprung l)y a majority of '
the Directors, who, as previously stated, had be
come alarmed at’ Jay Gould’s failing fortunes,
and though all-of them have been mixed up in
numerous side enterprises, and have robbed
shareholders, yet they combined against their
chief and toppled him over. Their change of
heart was eagerly taken advantage of
by the English stockholders and
genuine reformers who are- hacking them
up with fearless determination. It is said this
coup d'etat was conceived five weeks ago, but
thetruth Is the weakness of the-rlng that was
developed last week in Albany, cou pled with the
denunciation of all the powerful metropolitan
dallies, and their unflinching exposure of how
every one of the Directors was bleeding the road
by private suckers on its prosperity, alarmed the
loss hardened o? the Directors, and brought
them in as deserters to the reform oamp. The
men who have been the most instruments
urging and guiding this desertion are General
Slokltß,representing, the English interests; Fred.
R. A. Lane, of the Erie Directory, and O,
H. P. Archer, who secretly succeeded
Fisk as Vice President of Erie a week
before Fisk’s death, From the first, Archer has
been hostile to Jay Gould, anti the latter has
been aware and afraid of his enmity. Evidence
of the Directors’’ insurrection was not made puh-
Uo until yesterday, and there was nothing tangi
ble of It privately until last Friday.
GOULD SURRENDERS.
Gould has surrendered to Cbe storming col
umns of his late associates and the reformers
who joined in the assault. All last night the
Grand Opera House contained two opposing
forces, who passed anxious and sleepless boars.
At 3 p. m., and again at 6 a. m.. Tommy
Lynch’s gang of roughs made demonstrations as
if to force open and secure the contents of the
sates, hut were overpowered by 100 policemen,
whose conduct all through the siege has been
most praiseworthy.
AT THE OPERA HOUSE YESTERDAY MORNING.
Early this morning the scene at the Grand
Opera House was one to be remembered. Gould
and Eldridge, with their conned, in one room,
the newly-chosen Directors in anothsr, with Mr.
Archer in command, the doors of both rooms
barred, opening to no one but assured friends,
each fearful of orders of arrest being served on
them; every spare room in the oflioe filled with
blue-coated officers of the peace, sitting in all the
chairs and on all the tables, and lying on the
floors, and an intense sense of subdued excite
ment prevailing.
GOULD’S INTENTIONS.
The report is published that the revolt of yea
terday was hastened by a discovery that Gould
was about to throw enough Erie stock on the
market to raise 13, 000,000, with which to buy up
the New York Legislature..
TUB NEW PRESIDENT.
General Dix says to reporters who question,
him that he is President ©f th© Erie Road, and
intends to exercise all the (unctions of his office
with resolution and confidence. •
WHAT JAT GOULD’S FRIENDS SAT.
Jay Gould’s supporters say that the whole af
fair is a conspiracy of Englishmen to bull the af
faire of the rotten Atlantic & Great Western,
and some and that Grant is backing up Sickles to
make political capital for himself.
GOULD’S SUGGESTION.
One of Gould’s suggestions hut night after his
discomfiture was for the resignation of the entire
Board, himself included, and appointment of a
new Directory by Horace Greeley. He knows, of
course, this would he illegal and impracticable.
NO RELIEF.
Sickles says Gould will probably ap
peal to the Courta, but the atmosphere la chang
ed, and the Judges themselves are being over
hauled.
PRESIDENT GOULD’S LAST HOURS.
£At 5 a. m., Jav Gould, who had not slept went
to the vacant President’s room, and occupied hla
accustomed desk, meeting no opposition,—the
room filling quickly with his friends. He wrote
two copies of a manifesto, declaring himself still
the lawful head of Erie, and warning the em
ployes to that effect. One was posted on the
door of the President’s room, and the other at
the Twenty-third street entrance, but as
soon as the Archer party discovered the placards
they tore them down. All entrances to the Opera
House during the morning were carefully guard,
ed. No one was admitted without having passes
by either Archer or the Gould party. The crowd
outside numbered several hundred, hut was
merely curious, not demonstrative. After day
break no disorder occurred inside or outside the
building. Tommy Lynch’s battalion began
to show signs of exhaustion, and
numbers sneaked off. At ll this morning
General Sickles entered the Opera House, and
about ten minutes later a meeting of the new
Directors was held, at which it was resolved
14 that the Erie Railroad shall be governed here
after by bona fide stockholdersalso approving
the repeal of the Classification bill, and appoint
ing two Directors to press its passage by the
Legislature; rescinding the authority of the
President to issue §22,000,000 convertible bonds,
and directing the stock transfer books to be
closed until otherwise ordered by the Board. The
amout of common stock issued to the present time
was reported to he $78,000,000. The safe was
opened by Vice President Archer and the Secre
tary, and a number of books and papers taken,
out. While this was going forward Jay Gould and
.friends remained quietly in the President’s room.
Thus the situation remained until 3 o’clock this
afternoon, when a report flew through the city
that Jay Gould had cried enough and re
signed. The vigilance of the police had
relaxed and a curious crowd poured
into the Grand Opera House. They saw
General Sickles, Jay Gould, and Mr. Sherman
pass through the corridor into the Director’s
room, evidently on friendly terms, Gould looking
pale* bat smiling. The report is that the new Di
rectors had sent their ultimatum through Gen
eral Sickles to Gould to the effect that if he would
yield allegiance he. Dr. Eldridge, Sherwood, and
Drake would be permitted to sustain
tbelr position os Directors. Sickles gained
access to Gould after some difficulty, and met a
cool reception; but his arguments carried his
point, and when sickles returned to the session
of the new Directors. Gould accompanied him.
On going before the meeting Gould immediately
offered bis resignation, which was accepted, and
General Dlx was elected President by acclama
tion. Gould dismissed Tommy Lynch and his
gang, saying all was settled. The hungry and
tired policemen wore also dismissed.
THE NEW REGIME.
General and President Dlx, Vice President
Archer, and ex-Prcslcent Jay Gould entered the
President’s room together, Gould inducting Dix
into the telegraphic and other arrangements of
the office, and thus Gould yielded, having been
literally forced out, and had all the work
ing arrangements of the road transferred
to other bands, independent of formality
ane regardless alike of his power of law;
powerless to direct any of the operations of the
road and unable to hsrrass, hamper, or defeat hla
enemies. To remain longer in his entrenchments
without a single follower capable of duty would
have been childish!
To the Associated Press.
New York, March 12 —The nows of the over
throw of the Erie Bing seems to be received
everywhere with satisfaction. The morning
papers regard the results of yesterday as a great
triumph iu the Interest of honesty au-i reform.
Tlie Herald- says that no coup d'etat has result
ed in the most entire success since the 2d of De
cember at Paris, when the Assembly was dis
solved and the leaders were transferred from
their beds to prison cells. It adds that a few days
will disclose a history of profligacy and crime
tbat will aston'Bh even those who had appreciated
, the character of the Erie ring.
| The World thinks it useless for Gould to at-
I tempt to make resistance to what has been ao-
I cornpliebed.
The Tribune says tbat the Legislature should
at once carder an election of Directors, and put its
action beyond any question of doubt.
At a late hour last night Gould aud his em
ployes attempted to abstract from the safes the
boobs of the company, which were taken posses
sion of by the new Board Borne of the transfer
books were taken, but subsequently recovered.
Henry Sherwood, one of th© ring Directors, who
h»a not yet acknowledged General Dlx as Presi
dent. pays tbat the whole business is th© work of
the Atlantic & Great Western Railroad Company,
which desired to get control of the Erie Road,
with a view to u-ing it in helping the Atlantic &
Great Western Road out of its liabilities.
Mr Ramsey, ex-Presldent or the Susquehanna
Railroad, says that the amount which Jay Gould
has not accounted for of the proceeds of the stock
and earnings of the Erie Road is enormous.
The new Directors of Erie yesterday created
wifh contempt a letter sent to them, after they
took possession of the Erie rooms, by Jay Gould,
offering to place his resignation in the hadds of
Horace Greeley, on condition that the other Di
rectors would do likewise, aud a new Board
cnold h© formed. Gould -promises to make a
legal fight against the new men. ’
It is stated that the friends of the late
James Fisk, Jr., are rejoicing at the amash
up of Gould, who is reported to have been

the Legislature are designated as delegates. The
teeling Is very strong for Grant, and delegates in

Convention at LaOrogue, which is the home of
ten Federal office holders, who, however, did not
attend the caucuses or Conventions, and two
anti-Grant employes of the Legislature,
Frank Hatch, and Milton Barlow, were
elected delegates, over Senator £am*ron and A.*-

Foxes ns Sheep-Herders*
The Stockton (Cal.) j ßepublican vouches
for the following story: People often won
der at the remarkable instinct displayed by
well-trained shepherd dogs, but what will
they say when we tell them of a band of
sheep that is guarded by foxes alone. The story
seems improbable, but of its truth we have
the most undoubted proof. Ou Whiskey
Hill, four miles from Milton, may be seen,
almost any day, a large duck of sheep headed
by foxes. These guardians of the little lambs
are three in number—one a gray fox and the
other two of the species known as the red
fox. In point of intelligence, these novel
shepherds are said to greatly surpass the best
trained shepherd dogs. They perform their
work well, and from morning till night are
ever on the alert. The gray one seems to
control, and in a great measure direct, the
actions of the other two. A gentleman in*
forms us that he saw the gray fox pursue
and attack a hog that had seized a lamb and
was making on with It. The contest was
short and sharp, and resulted in the hog
dropping the lamb and beating a hasty re
treat. The fox picked up the apparently un
injured lamb and carried it back to the
flock.
The Iros Ore Bmiaeiii
The editor of the Marquette Journal, writ
ing from Cleveland, baa the following rela
tive to the prospects of the iron business the
coming season: “ From what I can learn, I
»bould judge that there would be a ready
-ale for 1,500.000 tons of our ores this year
were it within the power of the mining com
panies to raise and ship that amount. The
contracts have been made at an advance of
from 50 cents to $ I per ton over last year’s
prices, and furnaces that failed to secure
contracts are now willing and anxious to
pay more.”

From the Masonic Ritual and Gazette.
New took, Job. JEU 1872:
Editor Gazette:
My husband died thresyears ago, since which, time
I hare eupporteo myself and family as best I could.
1 ho Masonic Lodge of which my husband was a mem*
her hare helped me In ways without number, but.
knowing the many dependent on their oharity. I hare
sought to make myself as little as possible a hordes
to Hum. An elderly gentleman, whose name I h*v»
never been able to learn, has often called at times of
my greatest extremity, and has always liberally re
lieved my wants. Late In the last summer, I received
a letter from him. enclosing a tcket In the Boyal
Havana Lottery, and informing me that he would
again, it at any time I should be in extreme wont.
My ticket drew a prize large enough to nmke me in
dependent for life, and to enable me to educate ray
children. I received the money from Taylor* Oa
th* agents of the lottery, at 16 Wall-at., and have Is
new securely Invested My unknown friend has often
spoken of my hnshand, as a member of the aarw
Lodge with himself. lam anxious to see him coca
more, that I may thank him for his many acta of kind
ness, ar d especially for his last gift. It has proved to
he a gilt of Immense importance to me. Let me,
through your columns, thank him.
