FRIDAY, MAY 31, 1873.
THE ELECTION TO-MORROW.
To-morrow the citizen* of Wheeling
are to rote upon the qneatlon of lncnrring
certain liability ot 1000,000, and a poealblo
liability of $1,200,000, for the con tnictlon
of a railroad bridge and the
Wheeling 4 Lake Erie Railroad.
The praent indebtedness of the cily li
upward of <000,000. The mesaed value
oi me luxuDie properly 01 me city is upward
of $13,000,000. It will be wen,
therefore, that thii addition to the city
indebtedness will make the debt approximate
very cloaely to ten per cent oi ita
taxable property.
The question to bo decided, therefore, la
a very grave one, and ahould bo very
carefully considered.
Bo far ai we are concerned, the only
question lor consideration is whether the
guaranteea offered for the completion of
the proposed works are sufficient to Justify
no heavy an expenditure. In our
Judgment they are not.
As to (be bridge, not a dollar of the
stock baa been aubscribed, and the company
is not organized. There is no pledge
or promise of any additional slock trom
any other source. v
Mr. Wulsok's promiso was that be
would advise or recommend to tho \V.& L.
E. R. R. Co. to take (400,000 of the bridge
stock, but expressly stated that he was not
authorixed to pledge the company to do bo.
The First Branch of tho City Council
expressly decided by a majority of more
than two to one, that they would not require
any subscription from other sources
aa a condition precedent to the subscription
by the city. It is agreed on all hands
that the bridge will cost not less than
11,000,000, besides the right of way fBrtho ,
approach to it on both sides of the river. ,
The only hope of securing any additional
stock beyond the city subscription is that
the \V. 4 L.E. R. R. Co. will take the additional
(400,000 as suggested by Mr. Willson.
If this is done it Is with the expectation
that the Railroad"* Company will
take the contract for building the bridgeHavitig.|400,000
out of the $700,000 that
will be thus subscribed, tho Railroad Company
will have the control of tho organization,
and will, of course, elect their
own board of directors. Whatever may
be said about this as to the vote
of the contractors in electing directors in
the Railroad Company, there can be no
queation about it aa to the bridge company.
The directors will have the control
of the location of the bridge, the
kind of bridge that is to be built, the price
to be paid for building, and the acceptance
of the work when it is completed.
Whether it Is prudent for the voters ot
the city to invest $300,000 upon such
guarantees us these, is for them to determine.
But it is said that all these matters
may bo salcly entrusted to the City Council.
And it will bo observed that the
written pledge of tho members of tho City
Council that they will require certain
guarantees before they will subscribe to
the stock of the railroad company does
not apply to tho bridge company. The
only expression we have from the City
Council is the voto in tho First Branch
refusing to require any subscription of
stock before making tho city subscription.
Our own experience anil observation of
the action ol municipal bodies, is, that
when power is given to them to make
subscriptions, tho parties interested never
fail to get them upon some terms. And
the experience of tho city has not been
such as to give tho most unbounded confident
in such bodies.
So far therefore, as the bridgo is con
cerned, wo have no hesitation in saying
that with the total want of all guarantees
and assurances as to the expenditure
ot the money, a vote for the subscription
would be to the last degree imprudent
in J unwarranted.
As to the railroad subscription, it stands
upon a different looting. The conduct c'
the parties who hare the aflair in charge
has not been such as to inspiro the most
implicit confidence in tho enterprise. In
the first place the men controlling the
movement in tho city are not the manufacturers,
merchants and business men of
th? city who would be mainly interested
In Us construction.
Hot a. dollar of Individual stock has
been subscribed in the city, unless Mr.
Bell may hire token a share to make
him eligible as a director, and whether
he is any longer a resident ol the city,
may be a matter of controversy. And if
there is a man In tho city who pays $100
ol taxes for State, county and city purposes,
who intends to vote for the subscription
we don't know it On the contnira
thn nartlna ?hn firn rnntrnll.
lug the movement, seem to have
been anxious to defeat the purposes
and objects ot the business men
and capitalists or the city. They were
ready to subscribe $100,000 ot individual
stock to the capital stock of the Wheeling
A Tuscarawas Va!loyU.R. Co,, lithe City
Council would have put that Company on
footing that would have given it any
prospect of success. But the parties who
Me controlling this road relused to give
the people permission to voto a subscription
to the capital stock of that road. The
lesions for preferring that road were so
palpable that intelligent business men
could not fall to see them. It approached
the center of the city by tho ravine of
Wheeling creek, at right angles with the
river, and is the only practicable approach
to the city for a railroad from the northwest.
It wa? only fitty miles long and
could he built upon a paid up capital
stock of $1,000,000, with such loans as
this stock would enable it to command.
01 this, $100,000 could have been raised
by Individual subscriptions In tho city,
maaaaa 1 ?u?
VWW|VW ujr a v*?.j bujowijiuuu, $2UU,UUU
on th? line of the road la Ohio, and $400,000
by capitalists interested in tho L. 8.
4 T. V. Railroad. This would have
(Wen to the stock In this city and in Ohio
on the line of the road the control of the
company.
The connections which it had secured,
made It for *11 porpoie* except lor the contolldallon
of atook, a part of the Lake Shore
road, the foke Shore & Tnsoarawu Valley
and the Npw York Central, with the
benefit of all. their connections from New
York to Toledo, Chicago aid Ban Frandaco.
Bat tho people have not been
permitted to vote upon this road.
But Instead of this they are aaked to
take |800,000 ol atock In a road some 220
miles long, with a capital stock of some
18,000,000, already under contract, It li
said, at |85,000 per mile. The location
is still open trom the river to Lake Erie.
The atock la to consist of $10,000 per
mile, to be subscribed on the line of the
road and tho cltica at Its termini, and
$10,000 to be subscribed by the contractor
In addition to this $18,000 permlle
U to be obtained by way or loan, we objected
the otherday that at the contractor!
held one-halt Its stock and would therefore
control tho organization, and consequently
its location and construction and
everything connccted with it.
In reply to this It Is said that tho private
stockholders can vote on their full
share ol stock on the payment ol an installment,
and that contractors can only
vote on bo much as they have paid up.
And in support of this we are referred to
tho Ohio law. It would have been much
more to tho purpose if they had published
their contract. We suppose nobody ever
doubted that where a man subscribed
(or a share of stock in a corporation, that
he could voto on his stock il he paid the
installments as called for.
But why con not the contractors vote
on their stock on tho payment of installments
as well as the other stockholders?
When they have subscribed their $10,040
to the mile and done one month's work,
our installment will be paid and they can
give as many votes as they have sub"
scribed for shares. As well as we can
gather Irom the extracts from the contract
that have been published, we understand
the certificates of stock are to be
made out and delivered to a trustee, to be
delivered in full payment of the amount
of shares.
They are to be delivered to all stockholders
alike, the contractors as well as
others. Then why may not the contractors
vote on their stock subscriptions
without their certitlcates as well as
other stockholders ? Tho impression
Bought to be made is, that the contractors
do not subscribe for their stock
at all, but simply becomo stockholders by
receiving paid up certificates as the work
progresses. But this is wholly inconsistent
with the whole theory o( the contract.
The amount of the capital stock is fixed
by their charter. In all their estimates of
the amount or stock subscribed they estimate
the stock owned by the contractors
as constituting one-half. Besides, any
such principle would be unjust. It is the
dictate of natural justice that each share
holder in a joint stock enterprise should
have an influence and control proportionate
to the amount of capital he has invested
in it. According to the theory of Mr.
Bell and our correspondent "IIthis is
not to be tlio rule ut all. Suppose an
election for directors should bo held when
an instalment of ten per cent and no more
has been called for and paid, the stockholder
who owns one share and has-paid
$10 has one vote. The contractor who
has paid $100 has only one vote. Does
anybody believe for a moment that the
contractors would consent to have their
voting power and control curtailed in this
way? They certainly ought not,and we suppose
they are men who have intelligence
enough to understand their rights, and
courage enough to maintain them. There
is another difficulty about this contract.
It is claimed that large subscriptions will
be made by towns and cities in Ohio under
a recent law of that State.
The law ol Ohio docs not authorize
any such thing. It authorizes a county or
township to eorutruet a railroad through
such county or township, and if authorized
by a vote, to levy a tax for that purpose.
But it must be let by contract to
the lowest bidder. Hence these contractors
cannot build that part of tho road under
their contract.
The W. & L. E. R. R. Co. may lease or
buy such roads after they are built, but
they cannot bo covered by their present
contract.
It will be observed that amongst tho
things the written pledge or the members
of tho city Council requires them to do
before they will subscribe this stock, there
is a total omission of any point at which
the road sb&ii leave the river. This will
therelore be entirely at tho discretion of
tbo directors, who will bo elected by the
contractors. If we do tho company
any injustice iu making this assumption,
wo havo only to say that it
might havo been avoided bv oubllshinu
their contract, instead of keeping it sccrct,
or allowing an opportunity tor a perusal
and hasty reading o( it by a few persons.
Wo should regret exceedingly il anything
we may say or do should prevent
the construction ol a railroad from this
city to the Northwest through the State
of Ohio. But wo do not believe tho defeat
of this proposition will have this
result.
When the first vote was taken on the
subscription of $130,000 to the capital of
the P., W. <& K. R. R. Co,, it was rejected
because the people were.'not satisfied that
the money would be properly expended.
They wero not willing to trust the whole
matter to the Board of Supervisors. But
when the contract with the P. R. R. CO'
was so modified as to guard against the
loss of the money, they very promptly

the peoplo would set wisely in voting
down this proposition, and glvo an opportunity
for putting tho enterprise on a
more satisfactory footing, and submitting
it at the August election, or at some other
proper linie.
We learn from the Belmont Chronicle
that two thousand;acrea ot land have been
leased in Belmont bounty near the Noble
county line, and a lead and silver mining
company organized to develop the territory.
Wheeling capitalists are the originators
of the enterprise.
