Iii accordance with this requirement ot
the In* anil the order oitlio Hoard ol Comintaionm,
(lit Clerk ol the Hoard is now
preparing tiiu exhibit called for, and we
jiroiume that it will bu ready lor publication
ia tin* next week or two.
It is lii-'li time that fiucli ail exhibit ol
the financial nll'aira ot this county was
nude. Tho Istciuoeh-EB has persistently
tailed attention lor years past to the
necessity lor hlicn i-miiuiui, miu una uuiu*
pare?l the blind manner in which tinancial
mattcre in this county have beeu kept
in the background with tho full and
i iJi'toiliil statements Unit are published
| for the annual information of tax-payers
| ajjjojy our Pennsylvania and Ohio ueighibors.
In view of the fact that the tax rate for
county purposes has been raised this year
Iromo0 to 70 cents on the $100, tho people
will feel a quickened desire to know upon |
k trJj.1t jrountls it was done. They will want
to see a thorough and exhaustive itemized'
account of our receipts and expenditures.
It is generally understood that tho increased
levy results from the necessity of
providing for the lloatiug debt of tho counts
in the nkiim of accented and unnnid or
ders, a large mnount of which are held by
the bunks. It seems that neither tho Board
of Commissioners nor the public knew the
amount 0/ these orders with exactness until
a comparatively recent date. It further
seems that they amount now to about
$15,000.
The excuse made by tho Board /or no
keeping track of this lloating debt, and providing/or
its payment before this, is that
tin: books of Clerk Deiters were kept in
such an unbusiness like way that they could
not know the real condition of the county
finances. '
It is not probably worth while to comment
upon the past, but tho public have a
right now to the fullest expose of tho
condition of tho county finances. It is
generally understood that tho road fund of
the county has been wretchedly managed.
We took occasion in March last to comment
in severe terms on the way in which
it was squandered. The President of the
iloard, .Mr. Speidel, unavailiugly protested
against such a waste of tho taxes of the
county. But nil the same, the money was
appropriated in tlio sumo foolish aud
tliriftleea manner.
It ?a not generally known, but it is a fact
that in tho neighborhood of $32,000 >vaa
fipont in this way last year, counting the
county anil local levies, and counting the
vfotk done and contracted to be doue, and
"now comes another county levy of over
$M,oO0, lo be supplemented by about
$".<W0 of focal levies, to bo wasted in the
name manner this year. This results from
llio log-rolling system in voguo in the
.Board, by which "one mau helps anothei
man in return for help rendered or ex
pectcil," ns log-rolling has been defined.
Ohio county taxpayers have lost an inv
?ioi)(4e amount of money becauso of tlu
covori'd-up and lump-job way in whicl
their taxes havo been dispensed. The no
cessity for publicity was never more appar
cut than now. Here we have n great lo
of unpaid orders, tho amount and charac
tor o( which have, as wo said, been largely
"unknown to tho members of tiio Board
which could never have found their wa;
into the hanks to accumulate interest hat
wi accurate and itemized account of ou
receipts and expenditures been published
Secrecy was long ago pronounced the bam
of both thrift and honesty in public ul
lairs, ami certainly the experience of th
taxpayers of this county goes to prove th
corteotnesH-of that saying. It is high tim
lor a radical change.

A Disorderly Contagion. tl:
Tliero must be something contagious in
tho noisy and disorderly proceedings going q
on during the past week in tho house, for w
even the Senate caught something of the
kind to-day and got itself into a state of tr
undignfled excitement over a grave consti- ni
tutional question, which was. whether
President I)avis, who is sick, had a right io
to request Mr. Ingalla by letter to act as j*c
presiding ollicer during his abscnce, or ^
whether a new election was necessary. It 01
was a scene, at times, of great, but good e)
tempered confusion. As many as
half a dozen senators being 011 jj!

of Mr. Morgan's longest and tl

r Contented Election Case.
"Washington*, June 2.?Immediately after
e the readinu of the iournal the House re
* sumcd the consideration of tho Alabama
e contested clcction case, Lowo vs. Wheeler.
0 Mr. Thompson, of Iowa, submitted an ar0
gument in favor of the claims of the contestant,
and incidentally denied the statement
made by Wheeler last evening, to
f tho effect that he (Wheeler) had not been
fairly treated by tho Committco onEIecI
tions.
Q Air. Mills, of Texas, spoko in advocacy
1 of the right of the sitting member to retain
h bis seat, and was followed by Mr. Tones,
,f of Texas, in favor of the contestant.
n Mr. Atherton," of Ohio, used tho hour
(1 reading the report of the minority, lie
jf called attention tho fact that but three
ii Republicans were paying the slightest attcntion,
and criticized such iuattention on
n the part of the judges who were to decide
l0 the ease. It has been charged that thero
,0 was an agreement between certain gentle[e
men on the other side (alluding to the
Greenback and llcpublican party).
n Mr. .Tones, of Texas,?I proriounco tho
charge to be false.
is Atherton?"Very well. I will; show
?o you that tho Republican party itself
p- charges it" Ho then quoted Irom tlio
Jo Washington Itrpu'olicnn to tlio oflect that
m tlio Grcenbackcrs hail been steadfast and
lW truo to tlio I!c]Hiblicnn8 in the recent elccU'j
tion coses, and that the latter wero bound
be in bonor to see justice done Lowe.
Several Republicans?1"That is it; 'jus
of tice.'"
^ . AtJierton replied that soon it would bo
iia found out what justico meant in tho Republican
ranks. There were now twentyny
Hix Republicans in tho chamber, but when
on tho matter camo to a vote one hundred and
he fifty would come in, and, without knowing
i?t anything about tho cose, raise tho ax. and
ins take the head off tho sitting member.
Mr. llorr, of Michigan, entered into an
ronical eulogy upon tho great Intellect*
alunergy and sUvtesmansliip Hliown by|
l*o Democrats during the reeont lllibus-1
ring movement. I lo characterized Uan*i
nil as tho Napoleon of tlio contest; Ulack*|
urn as its Marshal Key, and Sprinuer ru?
oan of Arc (laughter); ami he ridiculed
lie courageous manner in which they
amo up to mako tho motiou to adjourn |
ver. "Tho last named gentleman," he
lid, ' "had not entered Die con* i
.'?t until alter tho Waterloo,
nJ until Napoleon was on his
'ay to St. Ilefena. Tho Democrats
:ien got up a set of whereases, In which
oro words that would stagger anyono
ho pretended to common honesty, and
hlcu ended up with an insult to tho
[ouso (hat had unn'nimously voted to bus*
iin the speaker in the ruling ho mado.
Jieso whereases now lay upon tho table
riming m uieir own mistiness.
Then passing on to 11 review of tho Ghullers'
caso and referring to tho statement
mt ho was coming over to tho Republicans
L'clflrciJ, "that tho party had stood a good
Bttl from tho Democrats, but thoy could
nt pass Chalmers oil'on It. Ho belonged
i the .Democratic party by nature."
iur. manning, 01 Mississippi?"Will tlio
mtleman como down to Mississippi this
II and inaku that speech, aud help mo
sat him ?"
Mr.llorr?'"Yes; and if I can't do as much
jod to you as to Chalmers, then I will
vo up. Nothing would pleaso mo better
ian to compare Siamese twins." (Laughr).
Mr. Atherton?"Will you keep Secretary
handler from helping to elect him needing
to contract.
Mr; llorr?"I don't believe it. It is not
ue, and if it is, Chandler is in a low buaicss,"
Mr. Manning?-"That he is 1"
Mr, llorr then passed on to tho discuss*
n of tho Mackey-Dibble case, and made
une allusions to the method of elections in
iuth-Carolina, which brought Mr. Kvans to
is feet with the assertion ''that South Carina
was not imhaimul nf itnvfhincr ?hn
.'cr did."
Mr. Ilorr replied Unit he was not nre*
ired to guess that sins would bo. "What
lantled other peoples' cheeks with shame
ur people rolled as a sweet morsel under
loir tongues."
Mr. 1 lorr, in conclusion, protested against
10 decision of tho election cases upon
clinical quirps, and declared that he
ould vote for Lowe. although to tlio "sins
[ a Democr.it ho added the foolishness of
Grecnbacker."

wing lo the absence of David Davis. He
esignated lngalls to act for the day. The
oint was immediately uiadethatan acting
'ice President had no right to make any
rich designation, and that the President
rould have to bo elccted by the Senate,
'he parliamentarians were instantly ready
rith precedents for and against the power
f the President of the Senate to inaxe aplointments,
meanwhile the Secretary of
lenateacted as presidingofticer. Mr.Morgan
aiil thev viewed tho proposition that the
cting Vico President could so delegate his
nthority with extreme alarm, since Presiient
Arthur might be stricken down to-day,
nd lngalls might then succeed to the Presilency
without having even been elected.
Senator Urown, who resides at the hotel
villi President Bavin, cmvn n. t.otinhin<r n?n.
on for the absence of the acting Vice
'resident of the United States. IJrown said
udgo Davis for years supported a colored
nun who is very low and probably in liia
ast illuess. lie lives at some "distance
rom the city and Judge Davis had gone to
ee him once more and to inquire if there
vas anything that could be done for him,
)roivn thought the reason entirely justiiable
and noble.
Morgan said that to avoid difficulties he
honld move to adjourn until Monday,
vhich would leave Davis' tenure perfect to

ho absence of the Vice President was finaly
settled by adjournment

An ironworker, who was found in tl
Amalgamated association rooms, in discus

that the men there, who number about 23
