Hare yen heard from IWadnwrska i
It is an eminently characteristic and fitting
thing in the Democracy to finish with conjec
ture, wild guessing and old-wives’ fables a
campaign which they began and carried
through with misrepresentation and lal.-ehaiod
Accordingly we find that "special dispatches
are sent to Copperhead papers in New York
and Massachusetts stating that when the re
turns are in from the northern part of Aroos
took county it will be found that there are
Democ-atic gains that will give ihe county to
the Democracy, and reduce Chamberlain’s ma
jority very considerably.
It is almost certain that these expectations
are extravagant aud that the comity is Repub
lican by at least three hundred majority. Re
turns Irorn 27 towns show a Republican gain
of 1(57, and in the remaining towns t.ud plan
tations the Democratic mujority last year with
a very liberal allowance for Democratic gains
this year would not begin to overcome the
833 Republican majority in tlie civilized pait
of Aroostook already heard from.
It ia not altogether improbable that there
maybe Democratic gains in the town* and
plantations yet to be beard from, for there the
Republican party has had to contend with its
old enemy, ignorance. The Madawaska region,
settled for the most part by Frenchmen from
the provinoe of Quebec, may be said to lie the
Ultima Thule of ths United States. There
the schoolmaster is not abroad. Take the las
report of the Superintendent of Common
Schools and see if you would regard it as an
tecedently probable that there could he Re
publican majoiiiies there, where the people
hardly avail themselves of the very»)imited
school advantages afforded them by the State.
Last.weejs, in a speech delivered at the dedi
cation or a scDuultiuuse tn Kittery, Warren
Johnson, Esq., Superintendent of Common
Schools, made tbe statement that only one
twelfth of the soliool children atlend school in
tbe plantations of Maine. In the plantations
of Northern Aroostook the ratio of attend
ance would be much smaller. The State does
wrong, as we pointed out last January when
reviewing the annual school report, to allow
this "sore spot”1 to remain. The progress of
correct political ideas keeps pace with improve
ment in tbe efficiency ol tbe schools. These
ignorant places are always dangerous places.
There the ties ol' loyalty and patriotism are
always weak. Id times of danger to the coun
try, whether from political or military cotnmo
tiou, an ignorant populace is never to he re
lied upon. The results of a more liberal ex
penditure of school money, instead ol the
paltry hundreds which the State annually
vouchsafes to Madawaska, would in a few
years b« seen in Ibe election returns.! •
It is no wonder that Democracy always
turns with hopeful eyes to Madawaska. Dem
ocratic majorities ars as sure as any of the un
varying operations of nature in places where
the common school system and the press nre
either wholly unknown or have only a nomi
nal existence. Kentucky and Maryland are
the only 8tales in the Union that are absolute
ly certain to cast their electoral vote for Sey
mour and Bl.tr. In the former there is not a
daily paper outside of Lnnisvillf, aud in the
latter oujside of Baltimore. The first thing
done by the restored Rebels ol Maryland was
to abolish tbe common school system altogeth
er, under pretence of paving the way tor i s
reorganization on an improved basis, but
the reorganization has not yet come. The I
Democrats of the Ohio Legislature last win
ter disfranchised the college students of the
States. Democracy always recognizes the
school as its deadly foe. The aristocratic plant
ers of the Sonth always kept their enemy at a
safe' distance, and the reconstructed States
owe'to the temporary Northern control which
their treason necessitated the establishment of
educational institutions that will prove inesti
mable blessiDgs to them and to the whole
The ascendency whien Democracy, with all
the hideousness and barbarism of its political
dogmas has obtained over a portion of our
naturalized citizens is another proof of the
close alliance which exists between Democ
racy and ignorance. These men are not at all
to blame. Victims of a cruel despotism which
has studiously withheld front them the means
of lhental culture, 1 hey come here and consti
snte the best possible material for manipula
tion by the agents of another aristocracy on
this continent. The electi in returns from
New York and Brooklyn speak eloquently of
this fact. In other years the choice of public
officers by the foreign pocket boroughs ol un
scrupulous demagogues gave rise to Know
Nothingiim. This was speedily perceived to be
at variance with the generous spirit of our in
stitutions and was abandoned, never, we trust,
to he revived. A better method of securing
wise and intelligent political action is to ed
ucate, Our boasted school system has not yet
begun to do its work. In the South and in
particular localities in the North, there are
masset of uninstructed men, women and chil
dren. An educatiomlfevival is needed. Maine
itself**! i to be aroused. In the address to
which WhaVe already referred Mr. Johnson
says that not one half of our children attend
the public schools, and in some places not one
quartet; in the very capital of the State the
number is only 22 per cent. So long as this
stak-of things continues we may always ex
pect to ask with some degree of apprehension,
•‘Have you heard from Madawaska?"
The South is ‘'Satisfied!”—The burning
of the Quaker Mills in Logan county, (Ky.,)
by the Ku-Klux proves that beyond a doubt!
Tnoy are “satisfied” and will accept the condi
tion, if they can he suffered to drive every
Union man out—otherwise not. Among tin
many outrageous deeds of these Rebels is the
attack upon the Quaker settlement in Logan
county. The Quakers were non-combatants
during the war, hut were intensely loyal. One
night, in the early part of this month, their
extensive woolen and flouring mills were
burned down. They were on opposite sides of
the stream, and were set simultaneously by
these miscreants. Their loss of property was
▼«ry large-from #60,000 to #70,000. One o1
the sufferers, in writing to a friend about theze
outrages, gives this reason for the operations
of these demons. He says: “I presume our
offence is we hire the negroes and pay them
for their work, and nearly all around here
want to work for ns, because we treat them
like men and pay them as such. We do not
vote nor take any part in politics, hut rejoice
that the bonds are stricken irom the limbs of
the negro and that now we can pay him, and
not be compelled, as heretofore, to work the
dark skin and pav the white skin.” How
long is this infernal business to go on it may
well be asked? and the answer is at band. It
is to go on till- these ruffians iearn that this
imbecile administration is sure to pass into
hands of General Grant and his supnorters.
Then will law and order be once more restored
to that unhappy land, and these Rebels who
are now running Hot there will have to rnn
»wajr, ilicmnrivnt, ur nc tfrnn. IX Will
not bp long before they will have their choice
of these alternatives. With these outrages
before ns the conclusion is not an unnatural
one, that a little shooting will do the Rebels a
heap of good.

The Republican Victory in Colorado.
—Just before the election in this State theie
came a dispatch, of which the Democratic pa
pers mude much, claiming the eleetion of the
Democratic candidate for delegate to Congress
from Colorado. It has since been found that
the earlier reports were true and that the Re
publican delegate is elected. It seems that
Frank Blair did it in a manner described in
the following dispatch from Denver:
me Democrats Had counted on at least three
hundred majority for their candidate in this
city, but, to make the thing sure, they import
ed Frank Blair from Cheyeuue, the day bt-tore
election, received bim in grand style, and in
the evening they had a torchlight procession,
and Blair addressed the moh. Aud such a
speech! I can best describe it by saying that
it disgusted all decent Democrats, many of
whom openly avowed their determination to
rote for sober, aud not drunken, men, for he
was drunk beyoDd the question of a doubt,
and was put to bed in that coudition by some
ot his supporters. He went to the mountains
the next day, anil returning a few days alter,
verv quietly lor the Ea->t, for the city had gone
Republican by over two hundred majority,
and the Democrats were charging him with
being the author of all their woes. Blair’s
speech decided it against the Democratic can
didate. Our people do not want another war;
they therefore could not vote for a man who
was in favor of electing Blair Vice President.
Republicans congratulate themselves on the
fact that Blair did speak in Denver, and re
gret that he did not arrive in time to address
the people in other parts of the Territory, for
had he done so the Democratic Party would
have been annihilated.
Kennebec County in the Agricultural
Fair.—It all the counties in the State do as
well as K-nnebec promises the State Fair
will be an extraordinary success. The Water
vine-Mail gives a partial list ol the entries
that will he made from that county. Mr. Laug
will take some twenty-five horses,among them
G$o. Knox and Annfirld. Mr. Dow’s Dur
hams, half a dozen, will represent Kennebec
in that line, as will also Warren Percival’s
large herd; George Shores’ Herefords are also
bound to show what that class can do. The
Jerseys are allowed to make a class, and ought
to he well represented among such fanciers as
Dr. Boutelle, Prof. Smith, Wm. Dyer, and
others in Waterville. "Greet) Mountain Boy’
will represent the Merinoes. Everybody says
the exhibition is to have markeff success.
It is rumored that a colored Georgia Demo

wonder how the individuals who yelled with
delight at Sunset Cox’s caricatures of the Af

During the State campaign just passed we
have seen a Democratic crow1, in a room fetid
with the odors of an unwashed assembly, in
voluntarily resort to pocket handkerchiefs to
exclude from their olfactories the imaginary
stench of the "nigger” painted by the glowing
oratory of the speaker. This Democratic “nig

Caution to Fat and Lean.—At a meeting
of the Young Men’s Christian Association, in
Worcester. Mass., a Mr. Ducher spoke against
the use by Christians of tobacco and ale. He
said no fat Christian is justified in using to
bacco to reduce his weight, and no lean one
was justified iu drinking ale to add to his flesh.
Every man should take whatever body God
has given him and do whatever he can with it.
There are no smoking ears on the trains which
go to heaven, and the pearly gates will never
be opened wide enough to admit tobacco.
The Water Power oe Maine—Calls for
the “Water Power of Maine” are in daily re

a movement in New Hampshire for a water
power survey. We ought to issue 20,000
copies of the final report, at the lowest esti
mate, and forestall the market. Three-l'ourths
of the editions issued is already exhausted.
The New York Post, usually so equable in
,-ts temper, is so exasperated at the conduct of
the Georgia Rebels in murdering the people
who wished to hold a political meeting at
Camilla,that it advises the Republicans of that
State to hold an immense mass meeting at the
now famous town, going armed if it is thought
necessary, for the purpose of vindicating tRu
right of free political discussion in that be
nighted region.
The Augusta correspondent of the Boston
Advertiser says that the returns from Aroos

Maryland and Kentucky are the only States
that are sure to go for Seymour and Blair, even
Deleware being doubtful. The Tribune's gen
eral conclusions are as follows:
Georgia, Alabama, and Arkansas are iu
doubt, and New Jersey and California may be
considered to stand ou praying ground it our
majority in Pennsylvania exceeds 39,000 iu Oc
tober. Not otherwise. On a lull survey, we
come to the fol owing conclusions:
1. Grant and Oo.lax will probably receive
the electoral votes of from tweuty-four to
tweuty-eight States.
1!. Grant and Colfax will be elected wheth
er New York votes Republican or uot.
3. Seymour and Blair are sure to carry two
States, are likely to carry six, and may even
carry ten. But the last figures are improbable.
Senator Henderson, of Missouri, one of

Political Notes.
While in New Orleans Gen. Howard pri
vately expressed himself highly pleased with
tbe Democratic proselyting movemeut among
the negroes. As a friend of the rice bo could
ask for no more powerful auxiliary than tbe
Democratic party in enforcing tbe suffrage
rights of tbe black man. He spoke of General
Grant as his warm, personal friend, and as a
pure, simple-hearted, good man. Gen. How
ard also said that Gen. Grant had requested
him not to advocate bis claims ft* the Presi

Gen. Alvin P. Hovey has written a letter
from Lima, Peru, to Senator Morton, in which
he says: “Gen. Giant, in my opinion, has
made a great sacrifice in permitting his name
to he used in the Presidential canvass, but, in
his manly nature I know he never considers
personal advantages when he thinks duty de
mands his services. No loyal man in Indiana
can hesitate one moment in giving his vote for
Grant and Colfax over the Democratic nom
inees. At least thirty thousand ludiauians
have, at various times,been placed under my
command, and I cannot lor a moment enter
tain the thought that one of those noble men
could so far forget the reeords of the past:
their long, dreary, hungry marches; their
bloody battle*,and the fire of the “Butternuts’
in their rear, as to ever cast one vote in favor
of their Northern enemies. For myself, I
would a thousand times prefer a man who
fired bravely at uie in the battle, to those who
meanly and basely betrayed us in the North.”
Mr. Cleveland, the Postmaster at .Hartford,
who went over to Democracy two years ago,
has sent on his resignation to the Department
at Washington, and will take the stump for
Grant and Colfax next week.
The New York Sun advises Gov. Seymour
to withdraw his name from the canvass, urge
his supporters to go in for Grant and make
his election unanimous, thus inaugurating an
era of good feelings all around.

A vote taken on the traiu from Fort Wayne,

37 for Seymour.
The Irish People, one of the oldest and most
influential of the Irish newspapers of this
country, and lfitheto strongly Democratic, has
declared for Grant and Col ax, and pronounc
es unqualifiedly against not only Seymour and
Blair, but Hoffman. This journal exercises
almost a controlling influence over the Irish
vote of America, being under the editoral di
rection of John 0’Mahony,of Fenian fame.

says he is ready to bet giving odds of 2 to 1
that New York will go for Grant in Novem

ally called out by the attractions promised on
such occasions, were present in respectable
numbers. The most intense interestwas man
ilested in the explanations offered by the vari
ous speakers, and almost the entire audience
sat patiently till the meeting broke up at a
late hour.
The meeting was called to order by Hon. J'
B. Broftn, who named Mayor McLeiiau for
chairman. The chairman, without any ex
tended remarks, introduced Gen. S. J. Ander
son, who has been for some months the agent
of the road. Gen. Anderson said that siuctTwe
met last to consult some progress has been
made. The city has subscribed $750,000 to the
stock of the road by a vote of almost five to one.
The towns of Conway, Fryeburg, Browofield,
Hiram, Denmark, Sebago and Baldwin have
all voted to take five per cent, of their valua
tion in the stock. Moreover, a committee com
posed lor the most part of the business men of
the city have been over the whole route. The
people of the towns through which the com
mittee passed were far more enthusiastic than
the people of Portland. He spoke in glowing
terms ol the resources of the country aloug
the line of the road, making special mention
ot Shelburne and Wolcott. Many of the
towns in Vermont ha/e subscribed 12 per cent,
of their valuation, making 40 per cent, of the
cost of the construction of the road through
that State This, with the bonds that will he
issued, will give a sufficient sum to build their
part ot the road. The question which we have
now to decide is whether we shall by private
subscriptions also raise 40 per cent, in order to
build the road to Connecticut river.
In discussing this question he reviewed
briefly the progress oi railroads in this coun
try showing that the wealth ot States is gen
erally in exact ratio to the extent of their rail
road facilities. Ho then passed to an explana
tion of the advantages of the Ogdensburg road
over other routes now projected or in opera
tion. When that road is built the flour which
comes to us by the circuitous Grand Trunk
route, will come direct from Ogdensburg at the
head of lake navigation. The objection that
the lakes are closed during the winter season
has no weight. No flour would be brought to
Portland in the winter even if there were
means of transportation by water, for it is not
at that season of such a quality as our mer
chants desire.
HAmong the o.her advantages of the road, wo
have guaranteed to us 50 per cent, ot the net
profits of freight passing over connecting roads
from this, for the term of five years.
Gen. Anderson called attention to the ex
tent of water communicat on which this road
will render available to Portland. From Og‘
deusburg, steamers will convey produce to
Chicago or to Fond du Lac, at the Western end
of Lake Superior, the Eastern terminus of the
Northern Pacific Railroad. A ship canal,
which will almost certainly connect lakes Hu
ron and Ontario at an early day, will shorten
the distance very much between Portland and
the West. The Northern Pacific road has al
ready received handsome subsidies from the
government and is sure to be built. By build
ing 300 miles of road to Ogdensburg we can
immediately avail ourselves of 700 miles of wa
er communication. Gen. Anderson described
iccogent and eloquent terms the advantages, of
this route across the continent over all others,
tt is the shortest route across the continent, it
has the greatest extent of water communica
tion, requires the building of a less number of
miles of railroad, crosses the Rocky Mountains
at a less elevation, the country through which
it passes is richer and it is the direct line of
traffic with China and Japan. When in three
years this road shall be completed Asiatic trade
will undoubtedly pass over this route, and
with our lines of European steamers Portland
will be, as has been well said, “the gateway ot
nations.” We have been gradually educated
to see that this is the thing that will give
Portland the position among cities that her
geographical position renders it feasible for
her to assume.
Will it pay? Henry A. Poor, an authority
on such subjects, says that the railroads of the
United States, north of Mason and Dixon’s
line, earn 25 per cent, of their cost yearly, and
that thefr net earnings are 7 per cent., the cost
per mile being estimated at $41,000. Most of
the roads, too, have been built in the most ex
pensive way. The projected road, taking ev
erything into consideration, is an exceptional
one in the matter of being likely to earn a lar
ger per cent of its cost yearly than others.—
The products of the West will shortly become
so enormous that the difficulty will not be to
get freight, but to find means of transporta
tion. The cost of transportation by water is
only one-third as great as by rail, and owing to
this fact and to the fact that the road will con
stitute the shortest route between the sea and
the head of lake navigation at Ogdensburgi
the produce of the West will inevitably seek
this means of reaching tide water.
The corporators have had an offer to build
the road at $29,000 a mile, from responsible
parties, but it is not expected that it will cost
more than $25,000 a mile.
Gen. Anderson bad heard within a few days
of persons inimical to the road who are plot
tng to invalidate the city subscription. Ho
warned them that they would, at an early pe
riod, deeply regret their action in placing
themselves on record as enemies to a project
of such vital importance to the city. He had
favored every project for the promotion of the
business interests of the city, but these men
must not expect a continuation of friendly
feeling toward their schemes, if they were hos
tile to this.
The speaker said that we could not expect
much further increase in the size of the city
unless we can build up a western trade. The
faro-ing and other industries have been devcl
nil they I'm ho until wo inoronoo otiv
trade, and build up a city large enough to ab
sorb the produce ot the country towns.
Gen. Anderson closed with an eloquent ap
peal to the citizens of Portland to come prompt
ly up to the work. The speaker was warmly
applauded at frequent intervals during his re
Governor Washburn was next introduced —
He showed that the proposed route has, among
others, the following advantages over all oth
First. It is the shortest cut to the western
waters, and gives easier access to cheap water
transportation thau any other.
Second, It is, with its connections, the short
est route by rail to the great West. The On
tario shore road, from Oswego to the Niagara
River, is sure to be built, and when this link is
completed we have an all rail line between the
Grand Trunk on the North, and the New York
Central on the South, shorter than either.
Third, The whole line will be under our con
trol as far as Rouse’s Point, and there is only
one connecting road from that point to the
lakes. Boston and New York are embarrassed
by the great number of their connecting roads,
some of them controlled by adverse interests’
This great advantage is increased by the fact
that the road with which we connectat Rouse’s
Point is pledged to co-operate with ours and to
give it the preference over others. All other
roads projected from this city have connec
tions with roads that are controlled by rival
cities—roads that will he managed in a man
ner antagonistic to our interests.
Fourth, The country through which the
road will pass is so situated that all its business
must pass over it. It will he brought nearer
Portland than any other seaport. The resour
ces of this couutry were adverted to by the
speaker in detail, special reference boiim had
to the manufactures of St. Jolinsbury and tbe
valuable iron mines of Jackson.
Besides these advantages the amount of
pleasure travel that is certain to be attracted
to this route should be taken into account.
Id order to build this road it is absolutely |
necessary ibat the citizens o 1 Portland shall j
make subscriptions to ihe amount of two or
three hundred thousaud dollars. Eight hun
dred thousand dollars in stock have been ta
ken by Portland and other towns along the
route. People complain that the taxes are
high, hut there is no way under heaven given
among men to lighten taxation except by in
creasing the trade of the city. This road must
be built economically. Roads now in opera
tion iu this State have cost a third too much'
This must be built for cash. The city will own
a million dollars in stock. It will have the
controlling interest. The Mayor and Alder
men will elect the directors to which the city
is entitled by the amount ot stock is hoids*
These will be our most honorable and expert
business men, to whom our citizens may well
intrust the care of their property. Only a
small part of the subscriptions will be called
for this year, perhaps five dollars for paying
the expense of a survey. Next year, while
the road is in process of construction larger
demands will be made. The speaker said that
be knew one individual in the city who would
alone subscribe $20,000.
Governor Washburn’s remarks were listened
to with great attention, and his demonstration
of the advantages of the scheme, by reference
to a map ot the road, was perfectly convincing.
Hon. John B. Brown was next introduced*
and said that his was the unpleasant duty to
tell his hearers exactly what they must do.—
The project was too great to be carried through
by ten or a dozen men. The citizens must
take hold of the work unitedly. Every labor
ing man, mechanic and business man in the
city will be beuefitted, but he was sorry to say
that there was not that harmouious feeling in
regard to it that there had been in relation to
earlier enterprises that had built Portland up
to its p esent proportions. He firmly believed
that the Ogdensburg road would benefit the
city more than all the other roads that enter
it. $250,000 must be had or the project would
fail. Every man must do his part.
Gen. Shepley was loudly called for at the
close of Mr. Brown’s remarks, but it was found
that he was not pi esent. and Hou. L. D. M. '
Sweat was called for. Mr. Sweat did not
make any extended remarks but expressed his
confidence that there would be no hesitation
among our citizeus in helping forward an en
terprise that was felt would be for the common
On motion ot Gen. Anderson the chair ap
pointed Hon. S. E. Spring, Woodbury S.
Dana and Charles P. Kimball a committee to
select a second committee of fifteen gentlemen
who should be authorized to canvass the city
for subscribers. The committee of three was
also instructed to call another meeting of cit
izens whenever they mav deem it for the ad
vantage of tli*1 enterprise to do so, and to pub
lish in the daily papers the names of the com
mittee of fifteen when selected.
Brief speeches were then made by Messrs.
Dana, Spring and Woodman. The meetiug
adjourned at about ten o’clock, having proved
in all respects a complete success.

The eminent lawyer whose suddeu death
took place yesterday, was the seventh son of
our venerable fellow citizen, Gen. Samuel Fes

Receiving bis academic education in Port
land. he entered Dartmouth College in 1811
but the next year joined the Sophomore class
at Bowdoin, where he graduated in 1845, and
at once commenced the study of the law in the
office of Willis & Fessenden.
an ne opened au omce at Aiecnamc

rill to form a partnership with him at Lewis
ton Falls, which continued for eight years: for
the past ten years he has been associated with
Attorney General Frye, and the business of
both firms has been large and successful.
In 1856,. Col. Fessenden was chosen a dele
gate to the National Republican Convention
which nominated Fremont; in 1838 be was ap
pointed by Gov. Lot M. Morrill one of his
staff; in 1860 he was elected to represent the
town of Auburn in the Legislature, and the
next year was chosen County Attorney of

he was elected Representative to Congress
from the Second District, to fill the vacancy
occasioned by the resignation of Judge Wal
In 1864, he was choseu Presidential Elector,
and in 1867 was again with great uuauimity
elected Representative in the Legislature.
Re-elected this fall, his personal popularity
and extensive legislative experience would
have elevated him to Ihe Speaker's chair hy an
almost undivided vote.
He was a delegate to the recent National
Republican Convention at Chicago.
Such is a brief outline of the public life of
our friend who has passed from ns so unex
pectedly at the early age of 42.
Col. Fessenden was a man of fiue abilities,
easy and elegant address, and commanded a
wide and constantly increasing influence. In
his profession, he early distinguished himself
for fidelity to his clients and courtesy to his
opponents, for his sound and 4ipid judgment'
and the force, brilliancy and brevity of his ar
guments. The same rare gifts wore as con
spicuous iu the political arena and iu legisla
tive debate as in the forum, aud commanded
the respect, the confidence and the love even
of his adversaries.
But perhaps his most conspicuous trait was
an admirable fairness of mind aud nobility of
character, which rose fat above all artifice and
hypocrisy, scorning to gain a cause or a point
except upon its merits. He had a remarkable
simplicity and openness of heart, a transpar
ency of soul which shrank instinctively from
from the very thought oi deceit and guile. A
man of perfect integrity, purity, sincerity and
truth, lie had no patience with the tricks of tile
pettifogger and the demagogue; he avoided

which he laid aside only among his intimate
friends, who will long remember his sparkling
wit and his inexhaustible fund of anecdote.

malice in his heart; his humor was never
pointed with sarcasm aud never wounded the
feelings of a friend. A good man has gone to

Correction.—In the '‘Chapter of Newspa
per History,” published yesterday in the Ad
vertiser, the new name the Star has adopted,
there is one portion that needs correction. It
is that which relates to the purchase of the
Advertiser by the late Hon. John M. Wood,
and it states that the decline of the paper
commenced in 1855, when he first secured an
interest iu it. Now so far from declining, the
daily circulation of the paper began to in
crease alter Mr. Wood purchased into it, and
it ran up to 133 qillres, the largest number it
ever bad.
Again, an inference may be drawn from tbo
article in the Advertiser, that Mr. Wood pur
chased the paper to serve his own private ends.
We do not think the writer intended to say
so, but such an inference must he drawn from
it. Now we happen to know all about that mat
ter, being in Mr. SVood’s office at the time and
being cognizant ol all that took place. The
paper was purchased by him solely for the ben
efit of the public. Portland had increased her
business largely by means of the A. & St. L.
Railroad. There were two daily papers pub
lished here, and neither of them took the tele
graphic dispatches of the Associated Press
and both of them refused Fo take the dis
patches. Mr. Wood was determined that
Portland should have the same dispatches
that Boston did, and he threatened to start
another paper. In fact, he went so far as to
engage a printer in Hallowetl to remove his
office and paper to this ciiy, with the view of
establishing a new daily paper here. Under
these circumstances, Mr. Edwards, not wish
ing to come in competition with Mr. Wood,
sold him one half oi the Advertiser establish
ment. The first thing Mr. Wood did was to
enlarge the paper, and join the Associated
Press in taking telegraph news. Then Mr.
Came was added to the editorial force, and Mr.
Haines was engaged as local editor, the paper
having been without one before. Mr. Jewett,
late Collector of this port, was employed as
sommeicial editor, and other improvements
were made. The paper was run for the inter
?sts of the city, and not for those of Mr. Wood,
for it cost him money out of his own pocket for
lorae years to sustain it.
M e deem it no more than justice to tbe
memory of Mr. Wood to make these state
