\Wfn.v<;TO.v, I), Oct. 7.-?The Cincinnati
and St. Louis express which left
the Baltimore iV Ohio Station in this city
at 10:40 lout night, collided with an East !
bonn?l freight train from Marti nsburg, 11
IV. Va., near Dickerson, killing three
men and injuring six others.
|!v almost a miracle tlie passengers all
escaped uninjured. A mile west of 1
Dickerson station the road makes a sharp '
turn and then goes down a steep grade '
in a deep cut, the bank being twenty feet ]
or more above the level of the traeks. ,
Around this curve the train dashed <
jut before midnight and began its do- '
si-ent,gathering momentum each second. j
The freight train which had orders to ,
remain on a switch at Tuscarara, one |
wile beyond, until the express passed, 1
Juila/ew binutes inefore left the switch '
ati'I was toiling up grade. Suddenly <

palled at the coining disaster, which j
they immediately saw coultl not ho
avoided. Tho two engines were almost 1
upju f.i-li other, and tho engineers saw 1
that nothing could he done and that it '
was useless to apply the brakes.^
"Jiniij', hovs,' shouted Engineer J.
F. Welch, of the freight train, as he *
tepramr from hi? cab to tho side of tho
truck, hut his fireman, J. II. VirtH, had <
no time to get from his place at the fur- '<
aaco, and (ieorgo Uidenbaugh, a brake- 1
man, who was also on the engine, was <
go paralyzed with fear that lie was un- f
ablo i * tho engineer's admonition. I
J. W. C. Hand, fireman of the passenger 1
train, jumped and escaped uninjured. *
In an instant the two engines came to- 1
p-tlierwith such velocity that theystood 1

The accident wns due to a mistake on
lie part of the freight train. They say
they had orders to lay on the switch at
Tascarara and wait for two sections of
the Pittsburgh express, and tho express
train, which caused the collision, to pass.
Tin y had been on duty continually for
thirty-six hours, they say, and after seej";
the tirst section" of tho Pittsburgh
express pass had gone ,
to sleep at their posts to se-1
ii?rf a nttio sleep. They uwoko as
tin; second section thundered by, and
as it was running on the schedule time ?J
the Cincinnati & St. Louis express,
they thought it was the train which had
just passed, and therefore pulled out of
the filling and down the siugle track. ,

his trip to Logan and Pike counties, reports
that they were hospitably enter* I
taincd by Ance and Cap. Hatiield at
their home fifteen miles from Logan C. I
II., and counted fifteen Winchester I
rifles in the room while they were eating
dinner. The Iiatfields at present are|
acting entirely on the defensive, saying
that they expect to stay at home and attend
to their own affairs, only asking to
be let alone. They announce a determination
not to be taken, however, aud
as they are never found unarmed an attempt
to arrest them would be a very
dangerous proceeding. They take their
Winchesters with them to the corn

them against a fodder shock while they

NOTED FOR TllEIlt HOSPITALITY
ind never let a stranger pass by without
taking him in and giving him the best
they have, and this, of coarse, lion gained
them many friends. "Kentucky Bill,"
rtiiose real name is John L. Napier,
originally of Wayne county, but who
obtained fiis soubriquet during his life
in Colorado, has been having some quite
interesting experiences lately, lit one
time concealing himself in a hollow log
for several hours in order to give his
pursuers the slip. He is connected with
x Louisville detective agency and is at
present laid up with a wound in the
inkle* made by a Winchester bullet,
rho Circuit Court of Logan has disjhargsd
Kirk McCoy from custody, and
t is understood that the indictment
igainst Dave Strattou will be nollied.
Hi ere is no prospect of an outbreak at
present, but in case any further arrests
ire attempted interesting news may be
looked for.
Mr. Crawford in his letter to the New
fork World, thus describes Ance Hatield:
Ance, although a man of fifty years
)f age, has not a gray line in the brown
)f his thick hair, mustache and beard,
lie has a pair of gray eyes set under the
leepest of bushy eyebrows. His nose is
inch an enormous hook as to suggest
he lines of a Turkish ci in a tar. He
ivorea black hat, faded by long exposure
;o the weather, pulled downoveradeepy
lined forehead, lie piloted us to his
lonsc, and showed us in with marked
courtesy and "ease. As we entered the
liouse I noticed two or three able-bodied
nen, armed with Winchester rifles, paroling.
As I entered the house, which
s a log house of only two rooms, I was
ihown to a seat in front of the lireilace,
in which wood embers were
unoulderiug. In this room there
.vere four beds. On the beds were
\ FOUMIDAUI.B AllIIAY OF WINCHESTERS.
It looked like a small armory. In the
iilack back-ground there was a sleeping
igure on the bed. As we entered this
igure sprang up to the floor, reached
)ver, ami grabbed a Winchester. This
,vas the notorious Cap Hatlield, the pooriouft
son of Ance, a man who- is
ihurged with having tho most vicious
X'in per, tho most cruel propensities in
the whole Hatfield tribe. Cap Hatfield
s directly charged by tho county with
liaving committed several murders. He
8 known to be quarrelsome and vindictive.
At the time of my talk Anco llatield
took the seat to tho left of the tiro,
Captain Hatfield taking tho seat to my
ight, and then the children swarmed in
rotn all directions. There was a little
oddler of two, and a girl of four and a
lero of six. This youngster sat and lisened
to tho talcs of war told by his
ather, and eyed the rows of Winchesters
ying in tho back-ground with a hungry
ook. Ance Hatfield is a
JOVIAL OLD PIRATE.
Captain Hatfield is simply a bad young

Laying.
Rkadino, Pa., Oct. 0.?Over one hundred
people injured is tho record of an
Rccldent which took place this afternoon
during tho ceremonies attending the
laying of tno corner stone of the new
St. Mary's Polish Catholic church in
this city." Probably seven thousand people
gathered at the si to of
of the church this afternoon to witness
the ceremonies. Aboutone thousand of
them were crowded on a temporary (loor
laid on tho joists and walls of the edifice,
which had been carried up one story.
Archbishop Ryan, of Philadelphia, personally
conducted tho ceremonies.
After tho corner stone had been laid
Father Libichi, pastor of tho congregation,
aroso to speak, and had scarcely
commenced his remarks wheu the
newly constructed walls gave way
and one-fourth of tho ffoor fell with i
an awful crash, precipitating 200
people to tho ground, n distance of from
fifteen to eighteen feet. Men, women |
and children wero thrown into a confused
mass with joists, brick, stone and mortar
on top them. The excitement was
intense, but willing hauds at once com*
menccd the work of extricating
the unfortunates, many of whom
had to bo carried out autl
placed in neighboring bouses, where
tlieirinjuries were Attended ID and they
were theu removed to their homes or
the hospital. It was fallv two hours before
the wounded were all pared '?r. It
is said that several children are still
missing.

Indianapolis, Oct. <5.?In General s
Harrison's case, theold adage, "A prophet J
is not without honor save in his own ?
country," does not apply, for tho General
is honored most where lie has lived J
longest and is known best. If one could c
drop down into this pleasant city with- ti
out knowing or having known anything 1'
of it, he would lind out first that it is J
the home of General Harrison. Later ^
he might discover that it is Indianapolis, ?
the Capital of Indiana. o
There are doubtless some Democrats, {?
here, but apparently not many, for the j,
sentiment of the people is that of loyalty \
to their honored townsman. Here in
Indianapolis it seems to be the custom Q
of the people to express their political
preferences by lithographic portraits of
their candidates liunjr in the front windows
of their homes. You will see these s<
portraits in the luxurious residences of rc
wealthy citizens, in the homes of the U
middle classes and in the poorest tene* f1
ments?scarcely a house is without one ?'
or more?and they nearly all present the P
familiar features of General Harrison. "
Once in a long while one comes across a nl
lonesome looking portrait of President j*1
Cleveland, and I have noticed a single
picture of Clinton 15. Fisk. J;
I have talked with many Republicans, ?
and a few Democrats here. The former p
are enthusiastic regarding their eandi- J*
date and the latter have nothing to say tl
against him. Whatever opposition he
may have hero will he opposition to the .
Republican party anil not disfavor of its J'1
standard bearer. liven the partisan }n
Democratic papers have nothing to say 12
against the integrity of General llarri?
son, and tbev can say nothing here *
against liis efficiency. TJieir stock in
trade is con lined pretty much to false
statements concerning the tariff and dia- tl:
tribes against Mr. Blaine. Any slander- w
ouh reports which, may ho invented eoncerning
General Harrison must have hi
their origin a considerable distance from tf:
his home, to obtain oven temporary eon- hj
sideratiou. When such reach here they hi
are perforated and collapse at once. h<

Yesterday afternoon I met the Rev. .
M. L. Haines, pastor of the First I'resby- :*
terian Church, of which General Ilarrieon
is a member. It was not very long
until we were talkingabout the General, Jr
for his name, sooner or later, seems to ?
find a place in every conversation here. .
"I have known General Harrison ever j
since I came to Indianapolis," said Mr.
Haines, "and he is a man whom it is a ,
Sleasuro and a satisfaction to know. Ife ,
a member of my church; and there is '
no other member more earnest, sincere
and consistent, and no one more efUcieut. <
Ho is an honor to the congregation. .
There are few members of the First "
Presbyterian Church who have been ?

General Harrison, lie and Mrs. Harri- "

Harrison was only twenty-two years old;
two years later?at the ago of twentyfour?he
was elected to the olllco of deacon,

There wero soveral reasons for his suecess
with this Biblo class?in tho first ni
placo he was faithful to it?as he is to all cc
his duties. Amidst all tho press of pro- [e
fessional and political engagements, he bl
managed ho as to foe very rarely absent, Jr
and during one of his political campaigns tr
when ho was sneaking six dajs in tho
week, Uo insisted mm jus unpoHumeuiB -
bo so arranged that lie could get back to
Indianapolis Saturday evening, and thus 'r
bo enabled to meet his class on Sunday to
morning, as usual. Then again, he J*
studied carefully and thoroughly the
questions involved in the Scriptural subjecta
considered, and was always read v. c'
One of tiio me libera of his class lately a.(
said to me: "General Harrison always lj
had a clear conception of the truth in ?
his mind, and hu had that truth also in ?
his heart." His faithfulness and earn- d
estness impressed and encouraged like
traits in thoso who wero under his in- 8t
struct ion. His firm convictions of the **
truth strengthened the convictions of
thoso who listened to him.
"lieis us faithful, also, in the regular- u
ity upon his attendance of the Sunday
and mid-week services of his church,

of tho church services while he was in |?

his nomination, when the excitement \y
was running so high in Chicago, he

A QUIET SUNDAY. "
' 'Well, Mr. JIaines, we had a rest and ^
n real Sunday yesterday, We did not ie- v
ueivo a single telegram yesterday?yes, I *
believe a messenger boy did bring up a r
telegram about duskyet that Sunday n
wa? tbe day so many of the politicians
wero working so industrious to form
combinations in the interests of their
favorite candidates, and one would have 1
supposed that the wires between India- <
napolis and the headquarters of the In* i
liana delegation in Chicago would have
l>eeu kept hot with messages; but Gen.
Harrison is not an underhanded manipulator
or wire-puller.
"The nomination, instead of exciting
>r inflating him, seemed to rest upon
lim us a solemn responsibility. lie has
ihowu since that time a seriousness in
liscussing the duties of the National
Executive office that reminds one .of
Mr. Lincoln's conduct under similar cir:u
instances.
"The Hev. B. Fay Mills, of New Jersey,
who was hero last spring conducting
, series of Union Evangelical services,
in which halfa dozen different religious
lenominations joined), and who hud the
ipportunity of meeting General Ilurrinn.
and of studvinir him. wrote me an
nthuaiaatic letter recently in which lie
aid: *1 believe tho nomination of a
uan of his pure character will do more
or the elevation of our politics than lias
ny other recent event.'
"From my first acquaintance with
icncral Harrison I have admired him.
le impressed me from tho first as a man
f well balanced mind and clear convicions,
who would give any argument
rought before liimnfuir hearing, but!
/ho would not allow anything to swerve1
lim from the strict line of duty. There
} about General Harrison an utter abuneeof
pretense or affectation. He Is
pen anu straightforward, both in Ionuage
and iu action. He is not a man
a speak or act for more elfeet. What
e says and does is from conviction. ]
Vith him a promise is sacred. His
res' means yes, and his 'no' means no. I
[o is not dictatorial to others, and will
llow no one to dictate to Ijim. ,,

at any sacritice to himself. Ilia life
i this city lias been conspicuous for its
robitv aud stainless integrity. He bas
foil a constant Christian gentleman,
I ways inspired by a high moral purpose,
ad ruled by a conscience strong and iuirmed.
He is not a man to make a pilule
of bis religion; be rclixes to me
merson's saying: 'The less a man
nows or thinks about his virtues, the
etter we like him.' He lacks entirely
le self-consciousness that haunts so
tany of our prominent men.
"General Harrison has been generous
i bis benevolence, and has taken great
itorest in tbe various charitable organations
in this city. His popularity
nong Koman Catholics, Hebrews and
rotestants alike, attest the breadth and
numwH ?i ma Bviupam^.
"From all you have told mo, I infer
lat you believe General Harrison
ould make a moat excellent President."
"I certainly do, judging from his past
re, which is what gives us tho key to
10 real nature of the man. 1 feel that
2 would be an honor to tho olliee, to
is political party and to the country. I
dieve his administration would be wise
id just. I know, from unquestioned
ithority, that he received the noininajn
absolutely unpledged, beyond the
omiso that if elected, ho would conict
the administration on Republican
ineiples. That ho would do this, can
> depended upon.
"I have only recently returned from a
lort vacation in New York .State, and I
as impressed with the idea that in the
ist General Harrison's intellectual ami
recutita abilities were not always ?p eciated
at their true value. Ho" is by
) means a man of merely mediocre atinments.

Ordinarily but little that is useful in
indicating the political drift of the country
can he had here, hut the fact that
Congress remains in session gives the
| present year some advantages. Congress
men have been going out into different
States and then coming back here with
views of the situation, some of which are
valuable, but a good many are not. Take
cbemall in all, however, they furnish
about as reliable an estimate of the situation
as can bo had outside the unfathomable
minds of those who hold tho reins
of management at the New York headquarters.
No Democrats own that Mr. J
Cleveland is to be defeated, and nobody :
expects them to. There i?, however, a 1
i decided dill'ereaca in their way of stating
| things and that which tho Republicans j
[ have. Republicans wlio have recently 1
informed themselves regarding some of j
the doubtful .States are decided in the 1
opinion that Harrison will be elected, 1
and that by the vote of every Northern
State, with" possibly a singlo exception.
They express this "feeling earnestly be- .
cause it is a conviction with them. On
the other hand, every Democratic claim 1
1 have heard is qualified. If this or that
nan not nappeneu, or 11 hub or mat i
should happen, it is told you, there i
would be no doubt of Cleveland's elcc- I
tion. That the party is weighted and far t
from being in the good spirits displayed 1

the drift of the campaign. i
govkunob a it at ok Indiana. !
It is not necessary to rely upon gen- (
cral facta for an opinion of this kind. ']
During the week something has been 1
known of the condition of tho President's
mind on this matter of so much G
great personal concern to him. lie has
received much information that is dis- 1
couraging about Indiana. There has N
been a disposition on the part of the .
Democrats to look upon that State as '
pretty securely anchored on the Demo- 1
cralic aide, but they are now beginning |
to understand otherwise, and those who J
know most about it?men from Indi- 1
ana?have been giving the President 1
some cold truths. Among these is Gov- f
ernor Gray, who sought the nomination 1
for Vice President and didn't get it. 1
Governor Gray exhibits no feeling over c
his disappointment, and has been on the 1
stump in ludiaua, but when ho culled
at the White House this week he told
the President that, while they were go- 1
ing to make the best fight they could,
and hoped for tho best, it was more than
likely ttiut if tho Democrats succeeded I
with their national ticket it would be j
without the vote of 1 ndinna. ,
Governor Gray repeated this view 1
substantially* in such confidential con- S
ferenccs as ho hud here'with fellow c
Democrats, and in some cases lie elaboratetl
his masons, which embodied two
points: the tariff attitude of tho Demo- c
eratie party, which is unpopular in both [
the /arming and manufacturing sections 1
of the State, and the fact that a citizen c'
of Iudiana heads the Republican ticket, j
The Governor was much more guarded 1
in his expressions to casual friends, and *
not even to strangers did he once claim J
the State as certain to go Democratic. 1
THE WESTERN MOONBEAMS.. [
The President has been fed so long on
the unsubstantial gush of pickinson, I
Vilas, Scott ami that kind of moonbeam 1
bilkers, Unit Grav's cold sense rather j
staggered him. lie hns kept up pretty
well with some features of the campaign,
hut it has been difficult for him to get
the truth from some of those around him.
Don Dickinson hns been sending from
Michigan the most dashing stories of
how that State is going, and Vilas has
never ceased to hold before the President's
view the possibility of Wisconsin
and Minnesota. Even Scott has talked
so much about the way in which the Republican
majority in Pennsylvania is
going to be reduced, that it would not
hesurprsing to hear him claiming the
State out jjiid out before election. Some
of these things have deceived the President
and some have not. lie has not
been without the ability to see that the
tide was going ngainst him. Ho still
holds the view, however, that two or
three of the Northwestern States?and
his mind js quite as much upon Illinois
as any other?may Hop from the Republican
column. There are few Democrats
who have any pntience with that hope.
They call attention to the fact that Western
"Democrats, except those in tho Cabinet,
do not hold out any hope froiuthat
section, and that all the talk is in the
Kasv. Even Michigan, which the Hepublicans
were very much afraid of six
Weeks ago, is no longer regarded by 1
well-balanced Democrat*) as promising, c
TWO SOUTHERN* STATES. 1
On the other band the Democrats aro 1
getting quite slinky about West Virginia. J
Private opinion of the situation there ]
expressed by ex-Senator Camden, a <
Democrat, have circulated and do not t
inspire the party. Camden knows the t
State pretty thoroughly, and he is re- t
ported to havo said in good set language
that he did not see how the Democrats
could expect to carry It this year. Large
accessions to the manufacturing aud t
lumber industries have about revolutionized
the sentiment there, and it is ]
not believed that the old way-back Dttn- t
ocrats can any longer out-vote the new
blood which is building up the State by *
the development of its resources. All !
the Republican encouragement about :
West Virginia comes from the Demo- .
crats who know sometbiug about the
situation there.
The Democrats are willing to confess
that they would be afraid of Virginia,
also, were it not for the fact that Gen- 1
eral Mahoue is immersed in a quarrel 1
with the colored people, the effect of <
which no one can foretell. It would f
not be very surprising if it Should re- ,
suit in a large body of colored votes go- j
ingtothe Democratic ticket. AH this ,
was avoidable, but as it has not been \
avoided, the Republicans are no longer ,
considering Virginia, although two ,
months age it promised good fighting
ground.
LOOKING TO THE EAST.
' The result of the week's observations
' over the whole field haa been to per- ,
suade the Democrats that they had bet- ,
tor not rely upon Indiana too much, i
The more careful ones are now leaving
it out of their calculations, and while i
while Chairman Brice in New York is
entertaining the public with talk about
ho Wwit thnun who flfniro closelv and
more upnn facts do not shut their eyes
to tlio (act that the Democratic hope
centers upon New York, Now Jersey

by partisan interest have recognize*
that the drift was agftinstCleveland frou

none of the several efforts to check i
linvo had all the desired effect. The de
clared hope of the Democrats was to"ed

ing about tho tariff and they still hopt

THURMAN A DI8AIT0IXTMEKT.
Another feature of the Democratic
jarapaign has proved not only a disappointment,
but a positive drawback.
Chat is Judge Thurman and his camhlacy.
Tho incident of his physical failire
in New York is a small matter compared
with tho general feeling. Nothing
xpected in his nomination has been
ealized. He was wanted togo upon the
itump and stir up the old-time Dcmo:rat8,
who have heverbeen veryenthusiistic
over Cleveland. His speeches have
jeen the most astounding failures, and
t is felt to bo extremely hazardous to
exhibit him .again before the country.
Phere is n good deal of criticism of the
'resident, M ho is personally responsible
or the nomination of Thurman, and it is
icen by everybody now tiiat tne choice
if Governor Gray, of Indiana, would
lave given some strength to the ticket
vhere it is greatly needed.
Two weeks ajjo there was considerable
nside discussion about getting Thurnan
ofT the ticket and Giuy on. It had
nany advocates, and the talk was paricularly
prevalent in Indiana, where
he necessity for some action was best
inderstood. But it was Agreed that the
ihange could not be made without dong
quite as much harm as good. I do
lot know whether Judge Thurnian's
ipinion on the subject could be taken or

Olbrr.
New York, Oct. 7.?The Democrats of
Jew York City are fighting again. That
s good news for the Republicans. The
s'ew York members of the Cabinet,
Secretaries Whitney anil Faircbild, Colinel
Brice, ex-Senator Barn um and Senior
Gorman all came to New York and
onsulted for two days and two
lights. They told Tammany to
>e good and take Hewitt if * they
ouldn't get anything better. Tarniiany
wouldn't. They wanted the counv
Democracy to accept somebody else
nan Hewitt*, and the county Democracy
vouldn't. The National Committee
abored and prayed and swore, with the
esult that Tammany nominated Sheriff
5rant and the county Democracy intoned
the Citizens nomination of
Iewitt. They will put up separate
icketa throughout, and go to clawing
mt each other's political eyes, in reguar
Democratic fashion.
PAST EXPERIENCES. *
In 1880 the Democrats clawed each
ither to pieces and elected Garlield. In
884 Grant ran against Grace, and the
Democrat majority was pulled down to
13,000, though the Democratic vote for
Mayor amounted to 140,000 more than the
iepublican vote. There were ndiUcrenco
100,000 votes between the local Demosratic
majority and the national majorty.
If .the same thing is goi/ig to hap)en
this fall, Cleveland may as well hefin
packing up now preparatory to leting
another tenant in the White House.
A Mayor, a Governor and a President
vould be a great victory for the local
Republicans. They have it in their
>ower to elect all three. Sagacity and
lerscverance win uu u. j iiu i'u? x uik

1 Judge Fleming used recklessly flgur

1 "he is is not sufticiently posted on t!
" issues of* the campaign" [Chairmi
Hiley] to discuss them before an auc
once outside of Chirman Riley's "i
terior." Ho gives the Republican par
credit for establishing the school ayalei
but says they left it in a crude and ir
neriect condition, ana mat it was pc
lected by the Democratic party. I
failed to state tbat the first act of a Dei
ocratic Legislature was intended to cri
pie and destroy the system, and had
not been that public opinion favort
public schools, they never would liai
enacted the present law.
Judge Fleming says: "In 1807 und<
a Republican administration there ws
expended from the general school fun
$107,000; in is70,the last year of Kepul
lican control, thero was expended froi
this fund $2&>.000. Then there came
change. Republicanism went out an
Democracy came in, and what was tl:
result? In 1887, or the last year froi
which we have ollicial statistics, thei
was expended for the benefit of tl
school children of this State almost twit
as much as any Republican adtninistn
tion ever litid out. $402,000 wi
thus laid out." The Intelligence
does not disputo the figures for 1807 an
1S70. There is at hand no oflicial repoi
for 1887. The last published reports o
tins subject will bo found on page G<
Auditor's report for 1885 and 1880, shov
ing that there was apportioned to tli
several counties for school purposes fc
the year 1885, $104,524 30, and lor 188<
$207,727 0(f. The amount apportions
pur capita in ISO" and 1870 is undoub
cdljr greater than in 1885 and 1880, t
the population has increased at leai
lifty per cent.
The Republicans built school house
from the organization of the State o
nay, from 1805, when they got the scliO(
system in operation, to September 31
1870, to the value of $1,057,473 04; fc
ten years under Democratic rule, froi
1870 to 1880, to the value of $013,000 0The
Judge says: "In the last year <
Republican rule there was expended fc
all purposes in this State $557,000. I
1887 there was laid out for all purpose
over $1,087,000. But you ask me lio
was the Democratic party able to i3
this? Did it lay heavier taxes? Not or
cent." Economy, honesty and intell
gent business methods, Judgo Flemin
states, enabled the Democratic* party t
not only expend so much more mono;
but nlso to reduce the taxes. The Judy
failed to state that a Democratic Const
tutional Convention increased the nun
her of officers in every department <
the State government and increase
the salaries of many of them.
To prevent a deficiency in tlib Trea
ury a Democratic Legislature ordered
re-valuation of real estate in 1874 an
1882 and increased the valuation $22
423,242 30 from $95,300,808 02 in 1871 t
$117,044,110 32.
110 ^ot his figures mixed in regard 1
reduction of the rate of taxation, f(
precisely the opposite of what he said
the fact.
At the organization of West Virgini
the rate of taxation then existing in tli
old State was forty cents 011 each Sl(
valuation of taxable property for Stal
purposes. This was continued one yei
by the Legislature of the new State. J
the second term of the Legislature tl
rate was reduced to thirty cents f<
.Stato purposes?Chapter SM, Acts of 180
Chapter 100, Act* of 1808, the rote wi
iit:aiu reduced from thirty cents totwei
ty cents on each $100 for State purpose
In 1883?Chapter 5-1, page 81?the ra!
was increased to twenty-five cents, whei
it now remains. Both the reductioi
were made by Republicans. The ii
crease was made by a Legislature ove
whelmiugly Democratic.
This increase of valuation and also i
the rate of taxation did not produce tl.
necessary revenues to meet the extrav
gaut expenditures caused by a Deim
cratic constitutional convention increa
ing the number and pay ofollicersi
the State. .So the Democratic State E:
