Monsieur Toniou Come A (Bin!
We mentioned yesterday that the genleman
who swindled the -people ot this
ity out ol (360,000 subscribed to the Clninnati
& Marietta Railroad was named
Wilson, and that the only apparent diflerdco
between that case and this ni that
le present sharper who U laying hla traps
> catch our subscriptions this time spelli
Isnsmo with two l's Instead of one.
low wo learn that he was a party to
lat Cincinnati & Marietta tranaac
on; that he helped Mr. Noah
?imon negotiate the bonds of which
lis city was then robbed. How lar
10 Willson with the two lls was a
mfederate in the ichemes ot the Wilson
itb one l, and how lar he shared the
roflts of the transaction, he does not
sclose.'But that he really did assist
oan Wnsosln this operation, by which
lis city was swindled out of a quarter of
million dollars, was affirmed last night
j Tuos. Sweeney, Esq., in his speech
om the Court House steps. Mr. Swkbey's
inlorm&nt was a member of the
econd Branch of Council who said Mr.
Wilson had confided the fact to him.
This time the wary Wall street lowler
jreadshls nets lor larger game. It is a
Ity?and will one day be a cause for
lame?that some who oaeht to know
otter are helping him in his nefarious
Lot your motto be to-day, a million for
liiroads If yon build the railroad) first,
ut not one cent for tribute to Wall street.
Railroad Meetings*
No less than three railroad meetings
ere held; last evening, viz.: The mass
leeting in Irontof the Court House
epa, Willson & Company's meeting
i the Court Ilouse and a meeting of
jlored met at Market flail. The-first
'as presided over by Wit. 0. Handlax,
Isq. aud was addressed by Got. Stahton,
I. L. ciiansieu, Tuos. Bwekkev and
Ieo. T. Tinqlb. The crowd was a very
irge one, the speakers made telling argulents
and the people were enthusiastic in
icir opposition to the New York syndiite
and resolute In their purpose Dot to
a robbed by them if they could help it.
ho colored men were addressed by
lOhrrt Campbell, Esq. We presume
lere was no lack of zeal on tho part of
[r. Wilison'b people in the Court House,
:cing that they began by driving out the
[ount Wood Cemetery Association. The
est argument made by the speakers there
ras that of Col. O'Brien, who said the
ixes were paid after all by the laboring
len. We hope the working men of the
ity will think of this when they aro
skod to-day to voto to lay on the city
nd county an additional debt of (700,90,
without any guarantees worth a
law that we will ever get the benefit of
ue dollar of it.
Unless you are thoroughly convinced
mt the prospects of the W. & L. E. road,
3d tho conditions of its contract with
?illson, aro all they should be, and that
300,000 would be well investod in a
ridge that is never to have more than

: would be wrong under such circum'ances
to expose that virtuous body to
10 arguments ot eminent New York
nanclers in tlio lobby. "Lead us not
ito temptation I"
A oentlemak from Wooster, authored
by a few citizens ot that place to
ledge (340,000 to whatever railroad com'
inatlon here might give the best assurnccs
of success was hero Thursday evenig.
He fell among the Wheeling & Lake
)rie people, and was persuaded to leave
ispledgo with the President of that
tompany.' Meeting a well Informed genieman
alterwards, and learning the prosiccts
of that enterprise and the condiions
of its unfortanato engagement
vith the New York sharpers?of
vhich he had been imorant?tho Wooser
delegate was mortified over having
eft the pledge with Mr. Wood as he was
iow satisfied tho interests of Wooster lsy
n a connection with the L. 8. & T. V.
road. Tho Hq/uter will probably print
Ih'ia pledge this morning and claim that
with this |200,000 irom Wooster and
with iho subscriptions of Smith vllle,
Orrville and Dalton ($125,000) Wayne
jounly will give $323,000. It needs
10 be explained, however, that the1
txceptance of \V coster's proposition would
require a different route from that necessary
to secure the other threo subscpriplions
and they would be loet to the YTooeter
route, while the Wooeter subscription
amid not be got lor the Orrille route.
Tho Woostcr delegate further stated that
the Smittville and Dalton subscriptions
;$73,000) were good but the Orvllle (50,900)
were doubtlul.
Remember that this man WillIon, by
his own confession, contributed his share
towards getting you into the Cincinnati
& Marietta indeDtedneM. Don't be caught
in that trap again. Avoid him as you
would war, pestilence and (amine. Vote
down his iniquitous scheme.
The better way to build railroads Is n
to pot your bonds in the bands of Wi
street sharks In advance, but to dell?
tbem whon the work Is done. II there
real merit in the projected enterpris
they can be organized on that basis,
there is not, we had better drop the
now. But if you.refuse to bo mads tl
victims of the confidence gamo to-da
you win uo in a position 10 contract wt
mare responsible panics on terms tb
will assure us against possible loss. Tl
best friends of railroads will thereto
vote against subscriptions to-day.
The Slinatttres to the Call for O]
position Meeting.
A statement was jnode by one of tl
speakers and the President ol the Lai
Erio meeting that some of the slgnatui;
appended to the call, for the opposite
railroad meeting was.obtained by misa
It is needless to say that the. charact
of the gentlemen who obtained the si,
natures to that paper utterly refutes or
such Insinuation.
Tho case ol the young Main street me
chant who was referred to was simp
this: He told the gentlemen who rcques
ed his signature that lie did not know at
thing about the matter, and had taken i
interest in it; but as tho proposed meoli[
was lor tho purpose or obtaining light c
the subject and for the discussion of tl
"guarantee and security," ho was wllllr
to sign the call.
The matter wc apprehend is not
much importance in itself, but illustrate
the fact that, there arc men, too many v
fear, who to-day will givo their vote ui
der tho mistaken idea ol building rai
roads and bridges, when they are bindit
the city in a useless debt, merely becaui
"they don't know anything about it
Citizens vote intelligently on this matter
You will tind the city placarded all ovi
this morning by those in the pay of tl
New York sharpers, advising you. to vol
for the subscriptions. They are simp]
advising you to voto tho money into the
pockets. Don't do it
Those citizens who have studied th
plot of the Wall street sharks to gi
1700,000'of Wheeling bonds- into the
hands, and who are thoroughly convince
of tho impudent and soaadalous characti
of the scheme, should nmnnber that the)
are many Of theft neighbors who are con
paratively uninformed, and as a const
quence indiflerent about the lesult to-da
Rp.fl tlipm nrnl nrnlftin thn Tifiril thft oil
is exposed to.
There is no occasion why you ahou
cast to-day a vote ol confidence in Corn
cd. If subscription is rejected to-day yc
are sure Council will make no mistak
If carried, it is doubtful at best. Wn.i
son evidently has full confidence in li
ability to carry his measures tliroug
Council. Unless you aro fully persuade
Willson and his contract are all rtgk
don't run the risk.
No rational man wants to play at ar
game whero nineteen out of twenl
chances are against him. Yet that is ju
what we would be doing to vote th
$700,800 into tho hands of the partii
asking lliem.
Beware of "eminont financers" wl
have been prowling about the city tl
past few days. They seek to take yoi
hard earnings from tho support or yoi
families. TqJJ them-by your votes to-da
that you do not desiro another "Cincii
nati & Marietta" swindle imposed upc
you. \
i hb eagerness 01 ine lammany ra
road contractor to have authority voU
to Council shows that ho has no doubt
his ability to furnish a majority of ea<
branch with "satisfactory" reasons f
subscribing the money.
Belore yov give $700,000 for railroi
and bridge jo\i should demand bett
conditions and safer guarantees than ai
yet offered you. You ought to and ci
have them, even from these same men
you resist their present demand.
Monsieur Tonson Wii.lson has proi
ised the people of Sandusky that tl
$300,000 ho expects to get trom this cl
hall be spent on the end of the road ne
that city. Will wc vote him the mom
to-day to carry out that pledge'/
Wb aro happy in being able to say
country readers and exchauges that tl
railroad controversy, of whose monopo
of our columns they have Justly coi
plained, ends, wo hopo, with this issi
The peoplo of tho city will settle the qui
tlons at issue by their vote to-day.
Are you willing to place yourselves
the. power of Wall.atreet sharpers ?
not, toll them by your votes today tli
you are fully competent to manage yo
own affairs.

As suowmo how much the pledges and
guarantees of rascally railroad contractors pur
are worth, Mr. Crakmbr mentioned In hli
speech last night that when Noaii Wil- jln
]e son was laying the wires to swindle this cro
ie city out of the $250,000 Cincinnati & Maeg
rietta subscription, ho gave a'guarantee of]
)0 that the money should lie spent on this end
p. of the road. Of course it was not done j Inr
but to make a show men were set to work Ten
er on this end, and were never paid for.what
j. they did.

ly Tub closely packed columns of figures etn|

ing issued from tho census office from
' time to time, as uninviting as they look to ^
10 "tho general reader," are full of sugges- wo]
'S live and interesting matter, not only for
10 political economists and scientists, but ^
ie for every one who has intelligence enough WM
ig to appreciate tho importance of the facts rC9l
whlchraay be educed from these statistics,
of by analysis and comparison with previous ^
;a reports. Some wonderlul results are ^
re shown by comparison alone. In tho year flsll
v 1850 the national census gave .as the en,
tire products of manufactures, mining, and q
Baheries in the United States only $1,010,- ,
? 108,010. In 1870 the single State of J"
!? Pennsylrania propneed in manufactures
' alone, exclusive of mines and fisheries, Bai
' $735,509,424. If the aggregate of the
mining were Included, tho return would, (apt
no doubt, equal the whole product of the
:r entire country in 1850. Such a growth E
ie in twenty years is amazing. Should the sarn
Ie increase in the current decade be in the enc
!y same ratio as the last, the aggregate for mo]
jr Pennsylvania in 1880 will be nearly $2,- h(|
000,000, or considerable more than the
entire product of the nation in 1800. We
c merely make these statements as illustrat- J
ci nig iuc importance oi me census reports. p

evening session.
Mr. ScntJBz addressed the Senate. lie
said ho intended to discuss somewhat
elaborately the majority report of the
Arms Committee, and to show by it the
truth of a great many ot the propositions
put forth by Mr. Sumner. He thought
nobody could dbubt the propriety ol his
speaking of this reDOrt in view of the ex
traordiuary personal animadversions con- I
tained in it. He then reviewed in detail
the report and evidence on that subject, 1
and argued tliat tlie violations or the
United States statues and international
law were lull; and completely
established, and that the report ol the
majority of the committee was contrary
to the evidence in the case, to manifest
truth, to common sense, to our own law. 1
and to the law of nations. lie repelled
with iudignation the imputations cast
upon him and Mr. Sumner by the report;
asserted that they had acted throughout
from a sense ol duty as American
Senators; and predicted as one of the results
of their action, that in this generation
no other Administration would dare
to commit such violations of law as were
committed in these sales of arms. In reply
to the argument that the course taken
by the War Department was profitable
to the Government, ho said hs had
carelully computed the gain and had
found it to be about ten cents a head for
the people of this country. The American
peoplo were invited to approvo the
violation of our own laws, the imperil ing.our
relations with a foreign government
and lorfeiture of esteem and
freindship of loreign nations. [Laughter.]
There were many evidences
of an attempt to set up one
strong will ;as the government of
this country, and in confirmation ol
this he cited the action of the Senate in
removing Mr. Sumnek from the head
of the Committee on Foreign Relations at
tho command of the President, and the
submission of the Senate to.the President,
as a flagrant violation ol tho law in the
San Domingo matter. In conclusion Mr.
Schurz said he rejoiced to see the spirit
sweeping over the land which aimed
to deposo this autocratic power, and
ho earnestly hoped for the union
of all the forces that ought to work together
to give that redeeming spirit tho
victory which it must win, if tree institutions
were to last.

Illinois Crop Prospects.
OmcAoo, May 81.?The morning papers
published reports from a largo number of
points in Illinois and Iowa in regard to
tho present prospect of crops, from which
it appears that the crops generally are
backward, particularly corn, on account
of the cold weather this spring, but a
large area 19 being planted, and with fine
weather henceforth the prospects for at
least an average yield la good. Wheat,
particularly fall wheat, is looking badly
In many localities, and in some counties
they are plowing up wheat fields and
planting them in corn. This, however,
occurs in some counties in northern Illinois
every season. Oats and other small
grains generally are looking well, the
former promising an abundant yield.
