Those who are inclined at this time t<
pay heed to the arguments of the Wheel
in# lieguter on the Capital question in fa
vor of Charleston, should ponder the fol
lowing editorial from it* columns uijaini
Charleston, written in the fall of 187'
when the Capital was already located a
Charleston, and when, if the present argu
merits of that pa|>er are valid, it shouli
by all means have remained there. Ho*
an editor could have ever held sucl
opinions ns the following, and yet to-da;
11/ ho ilatly in their face?how, in othc
woruH, a paper couiu no cuiupieieiy uou
ble on its tracks as the Register bus don<
id one of those problems that in ay wel
puzzle the readers of that paper to solve
Here is what it said when it was engage
in the business of convicing the publi
that the Capital should be removed irot
Charleston :
"The principal reasons why the Capita
should at once he removed from Charles
(on may be briefly Hummed up as follow
"It is remote from the most populou
fiortlon of the State; the people who ai
Qcommoded outnumber by more thai
123,000 those who are supposed to be ac
cjuimodatcd thereby.
"itisreuiote from the wealth and bus
no4n interests of the State, the people wh
are incommoded paying more than two
thirds of the State taxes, or more thai
twice as much as is paid by those wh
are supposed to bo accommodated by th
present location.
"Communications between Charlestoi
and the most populous and Healthy poi
lion of the State is slow, dilllcult an
expensive, especially during the winte
season, and as the result of this, the peo
plo are unable to exert upon the legujn
live hodv that influence which their it:
t?re*u demand, and the legislators ar
unable to maintain that intercourse wit
their constituents which is necessary fo
the enactment of wholesome laws."
All of Lho above argument* in favor t
removing the Capital from Charlesto
the llegitler substantially reaffirmed lai
winter, when the hill whioh pawed, un
which we are to vote on, waa pending hi
foro the Legislature. The Register i
that time oppoaed Charleston?showc
that it was an unfit place for the Capita
showed that there was no material oul
oomo in the place even if the G'apiti
should be relocated there; showed, als<
that if the bill passed the people woul
vote for Clarksburg. And yet despite a
this record against Charleston, and nftc
proclaiming to the world in the mo.<
unequivocal terms that it wax not a f
place for the Capital of the State, th
Register now comes out and swallon
everything it ever said on the subject an
cills upon tho people of the State to vol
for Charleston.

Wheeling, June g.
Editors Intellljiencer:
rB It ha* often been asked if the I\ W. A
d Ky. road can be made a paying road
c when completed under the proponed arrangement
made known to our people
through the newspapers. I believe, as
'e well a.-f other* who are willing to put
n their money into it, that it will pay, and
pay well. I will endeavor to give Home
of the reasons for my belief.
* In the first place, the short-line road
in but 21 miles long. It will start from
in its passenger and freight Htatiou in this
i? city, which will be not over two blocks
from the business portion of the city,
and run out of the corporation without
11" hindrance to the crowing of it street or
te alley, and continuing along the river
front oi our county and of lirooke county
theSteuhenville Bridge with the P. (J. &
St. L. K. 11, by means of which road it
al will connect with all parts of the west
i- and east. It will he 25 miles shorter to
,e Pittsburgh, Philadelphia and New York
than any other line, and will make shortIn
er time than any rival route. The present
time table by the C. & P. road from
Bridgeport is 4 hours and 30 minutes to
0j Pittsburgh. The time allowed from
Wheeling to Bridgeport by street
M cars will average from 15 to 30
o* minutes, making tl?e tiuio from Wheeling
[e to Pittsburgh by the C. & P. R. It. from
ro four and three-quarters to live hours. By
way of the new line the time would not
)c exceed two hours and thirty minutes.
19 This time allows one hour to the east end
e- of the Steubenville Bridge, a distance of
24 miles, and one hour and twenty rninutes
from there to Pittsburgh, over a
? road mostly double-tracked and having
1,e steel rails, and running three passenger
trains through to Pittsburgh and New
York on quick time, making the time
ii from the city of Wheeling to Pittsburgh
and the East two hours and thirty rnin
hi?o mtuiici mail ujr nuj uiUCf lliuw.
vc By reason of this advantage this route
will carry all the travel from Wheeling
to Pittsburgh and the East. I will also
. say that this road will draw travel from
10 the Ohio side for Pittsburgh and the East,
lie The saving of time nnd car expense to
? Bridgeport will certainly be sufficient
reason to insure all our own travel. We
B mav look for travel from the Central
c' Ohio line. Wheeling will thus become
more of a point to start from than it is
he noW*
Again, all the travel that now comes
'8 over the B. & O. road from Grafton,
na Clarksburg, Parkersburg and other points
le. bound for Pittsburgh, nnd that now
stops mostly at Bellaire, will of course
come to Wheeling and take this route.
on Furthermore, all the travel bound for
* Hteubenville, Pittsburgh and the East
ho that comes up the river by our Parkersiro
burg and Cincinnati packets will come to
Wheeling and take this short route In*
stead of stopping off at Bellaire.
ey These aro Borne of the many reasons
ra. why the P., W. & Ky road will do the
at large sharo of the passenger business
. from our city, and I hardly think any of
,n these can be controverted.
t a As regards freights, there are sufficient
reasons why moat of the freight bound to
and from the city of Wheeling from the
. East and Northwest should pass over this
" road. The fact of there being a bridge
be directly at the end of this road, connectw
ing so cloaely with the P. 0. & St. L. road,
j will enable freights to be carried in closer
, couipeimon wim lue ?. ? uivibiuiih.
* The difference in dlitance it but Utile anil

V >>'v
can be crossed morejcheaplr at theBteu.
benville bridge and brought down this
road to the mills than by way of Bellaire,
and thenco up the B. & 0. to Wheeling.
The same thing is true of the shipment of
nails or an/ other freights from our city
bj these roads. It is certainlv conceded '
that all Connellsville coke will come by
this route. The transportation by wagon
of all these freights from the other side of
the river to this side costs from 50 cents
to one dollar per ton each way. This tax
on our manufacturers will be saved, and
thus increase our advantages as a manuluring
The Ohio river freights by boats will
be brought to this city, as it will be the
purpose of thia road to build a track
down to the river for the purpose of
transferring freight to and from boats.
The steamboat* will much prefer bringing
their shipping freight to Wheeling
ilirect rather than stopping at Bellaire,
us they now do. This point ends their I
trip, and coming here direct relieves the
present detention at Bellaire, which is
jften a matter of hours. Their Pittsburgh
freight will reach its destination j
by a shorter line and in quicker time
man m oreeeni. l'or inese reasons and
athera which I could advanre, I cannot n
?ee why iho P. W. & Ky. road will not 1m?
\ good paying lino outride of the great
advantages to the people along the line
r>fthe road, and especially to the people
of Wheeling. 1
It in important to hear in mind that
the investment in the P., W. A Ky. Hailroad,
when completed under the proposed
reorganization, will only ho $180,000.
We will have, in other words, a road 25 1
miles long at the rate of nay $7,200 per
mile. Thin, an every one knows, in a
merely nominal price an compared with t
the general cost of railroad*, or a* com- )
pared with what (Ii'h road has actually t
coat, if we count the original stock. The u
Uleveland A Pittsburgh road, counting t
double and Hide trackage, has about 300 a
miles of line. This mileage, divided into c
its capital stock and funded debt ($16,488,- 4
402 65) shows a cost of about $55,000 I
per mile. And yet on this immen?e|cost c
that road earns and pays 7 per cent divi- (
dends in quarterly payments of 1} per )
cent. In order to pay 7 per cent on its i
stock and funded debt it has to earn con- 1
siderably over a million dollars net, t
while in order to pay 7 par cent on the
?180,000 invested in the P. W. & Ky.
rutin me uuiu|iun/ win uniy neeu 10 earn
$1*2,000 net. The littlo road running {
from Washington, I'a., to Pittsburgh (j
earned nearly three times thin amonnt in (
1875, according lo the tablo of earning* t
reported in the last number of I'ooi'd (|
Manual of Kuilroadi*. ^
It in well known that the line of thix
road paiwefl through an excelleut coal 1
region. The coal not only abound* in
the hi lit* hut underlies thin road and the ?1
bed of the river for many mi Ion through ?1
Ohio and Urooke counties Thin coal c
hiw superior qualitie* for manufacturing f
purpoM'H, and can be easily and cheaply <i
obtained. There are many valuable nile'n v
along the road where coal can be had for *
manufacturing purported of all kinds. In c
my judgment the P. W. A Ky. will be the (
only additional road we can ever expect e
to eet for our manufacturing interesta in i
this city. 1 would ask any one to point c
out any unooccupied territory in any lo- ?
cality in this city or county which can ?
give the required facilities for coal and t
railroad transportation for mnnufactur- i
ing purposes. There is no such territory t
except upon the line of this road. And
thin 15 a point that I deem of more im- (
portance to our counties and city than i
all other advantages combined. t
Again, it in Haid to me by leading men i
of Hancock county, "You htiild your i
road, and in than twelve months we I
will meet you with a narrow gauge from t
our county, winch will give Wheeling
direct trade with Hancock." This trade
I look upon an of great importance to J
our merchants and manufacturer. i
In order to make this subscription j
more clearly understood letmesny that r
if our people elect, by voting this nub- t
scription.on the 7th of August, it will ^
give our county, in addition to the mort- t
gage bonds, 1,900 shares of the capital t
stock in this road, which I believe will j
in a very short time pay dividends. 1
am entirely confident that the interest j
upon these bonds will be promptly paid, i
Voters should bear in mind that these <
bonds are a first and only mortgage on
the road and that the county will get
them at 00 cents on the dollar. This
price will only require the connty to f
make her obligations for $45{000 in order ]
to purchase the $60,000 of railroad bonds, t
which amount we believe the county can i
place at (! per cent clear of tax, par
value. While the county will thus only
pay 6 per cent she will almost certainly
receive 7 per cent clear of tax on $50,000,
thus making a difference in her favour
annually of $800.
In order to show what the probable
cost of completing the road will be at this
time I herewith append the estimate of
Mr. Becker{ Chief Engineer of the Pittsburgh
Cincinnati /i St. Louis road, to
which I ask the caveful attention of all
lu view of these and other facts, I desire
to ask the voters of Ohio county
whether a Bound policy of economy does
not call upon them to avail themselves at
the coming election, on the 7th of August,
of the opportunity to take $60,000 of the
bonds to be issued by the Company for
the completion of the P. W .& Kv. road.

will therefore base my estimate upon the
supposition that no material changed
have taken place Binco my last report of
May 1,1870, anil that any additional deterioration
will be compensated by the
reduced prices of labor and materials.

The Tweed Correspondence.
Niw York, July 0.?The following
correspondence la made public :
Niw Yobk, J une 30,1877.
My Dkab8ib:?In view of the stateR
ment made by the Attorney General in
r hia communication of June 20th, and
which from his high ofllcial position
might naturallv induce the public to
believe that 1 have been acting in bad
faith and with no design of fairly carrying
out my intentions aa expressed in my
* letter to Mr, O'Connor of Dec. 0th, 1870,
I should aak if it be possible
or proper, to have all the facto
which are in dispute between
Mr. Fairchild and yourself submitted to
. some gentleman or gentlemen who are
Q free from political bias to render a writ*
ten opinion whether or not, in all the
facts, I have been faithful to my promise,
and whether what I have done does not
g justify my release from custody. To Mr.
O'Connor, a gentleman of recognised
honor anil ability, I made my first appeal.
To him 1 would willingly submit the
whole matter and feel satisfied with any
. decision he might arrive at.
Trusting this suggestion, which I take
the liberty of publishing, will not inter*
" fere with anv other acion vou mav hava
determined upon, I am yours trulv,
William M. Tweed.
To Hon. John D, Townsend.
This is followed bj a letter from Town*
send to Attorney General Fairchild, in
which Townsend Bays:
In your report to the Governor unon
your official conduct in the actions against
Peter B. Sweeney and Wm. M. Tweed,,
you took occasion to criticise severely my
f actn and charged me with conduct which,
i, if as you represent it to be, would be re* |
n prehensible to the last degree. In fact, a
x large part of the report, which in not
b taken up with a historical sketch of what
* you say has been done by other partial,
0 and upon whose shoulders you now
b attempt to place the burden of your own
i* responsibility. and which is not devoted
) to your assertions that Tweed's propowi*
a tion was unreliable and worthless is an
e effort to distract public attention from
- your action to my conduct, by which you
I to some extent governed your decision.
- I assume the latter has but little interest
for the public as my relation to Tweed
was a private and not an ollicial one, ex.
ceptso far na it had a fleet on your judgj
raent. Still some of your animadversions
_ seem, in justice to myself, to lequire a
p reply. Inmv open letter to you dated
i June 30 I set forth aa far as 1 could fairly
' go what Tweed's proposal contained,
, and all that he offered to do, and it was
apparent from that that there were but
three courses honorably open to you to
* pursue. 1st. To return the statement im7
mediately if you felt disinclined to enter
1 on such a negotiation. '2d. To return the
- statement at once if you thought the
? proof of all it contained would not warI
rant hia release. 3d. If you concluded
!? its contents would werrant his release, to
" investigate thoroughly whether he could
L do what the Btatement'set forth. All that
II he proposed was contained in the state*
' men I, unless his mind was refreshed as,
r to other matters, and tho intimation that
- ho might further corroborate his assern
lions was based solely on the ground that
t you would release him. He asked nodis*
charge from civil judgment or criminal
* indictment. I have briefly rehearsed this
e in order that it may be remembered that
!* Tweed made no proposal to confirm his
? evidence, except such as was set forth in
' the statement. The statement furnished to
n you was based on Tweed's letter to Mr.i
'? O'Connor and was intended to accom-1
* push that which in your report you say
? wan Mr. O'Connor'* aim. 1 quote your]
'? language: "Although thin decision
(meaning the Court of Appeals decision)
defeated the recovery of a large amount
? of money, yet the rigor and energy of
s the prosecution had already driven from
r. power and broken down the wrong-doers
i- and made the people of New York free."
r This was the main good sought by Mr.
t O'Connor's prosecution, and it was more
d important to the city and State than the
o getting of a sum of money, however large,
a In theory it appears that you agree with
Mr. O'Connor, but in practice, it seems,
a you difl'er. Yon make no attempt in your
L- report to(deny that you stated to Mr.Kelly;
y that you would release Mr. Tweed if he
carried out his intentions as expressed in
in the letter to Mr. O'Connor. You do
not deny that on the 20th of April you
i. said to me that you were surprised that
i: Mr. Peckliam had corroborated what
y Tweed could testify to, and you then in*
timated to me that Tweed would be ree
leased in a few days. You fail to deny
i. that you gave assurance to the same
[. effect to Twe:d. You fail to exe
plain how it was that without my
n Knowledge you called on Tweed with
0 Bryant, and how it is that Bryant could,
it have been no conversant with your rnovee
ments and your wishes, and I bo ignorant
f of them, unless he was acting in concert
i. with you. You give no reason why you
j requested me not to communicate with
t- 1'eckhamon tlio subject. You show no
1 reasons, as 1 trusted you would, why you
t- have been so very considerate to the many
li ring thieves, who still live in comfort and

understood that the stolen money u,
waasquandered in gambling. Tho matter p,
is being investigated,but has not progress- *,
ed far enough to warrant a statement of ^
the amount of the defalcation. The operalions
of the defaulters extended over a '
considerable period of time. Faxon and
McClelland were discharged from the
service of the bank some time ago. Both
confessed to being the persons implicated.

San Francisco, July G.?'The Supreme of
Court yesterday rendered a decision in It,
the content between the city and Spring
Valley Water Company by which the city V
gains nearly every point for which it haa
been contending during the laid eight
yearn. Under the decision the city gets
water free for all purposes except family er
use. The water is free for the great park,
for the public mjuare, for the engine b<
houses, for flushing sewers, for ^
street sprinkling, and for much broader tb
tinea than was expected. The entire
amount of the claims against the city by
the Water Works fo., and which haa
been defeated by this decision, exceed at di
this date $350,000. The decision pro- ni
vides that the company cannot legally 01
collect water rates without having first si
established and made known a legal taritT
of rates. It follows that the remainder of
the claim oi the Water Co. against the
city ia void, because, among other reasons, bi
