Honorable Conduct of thc Connecticut
(Washington Correspondence N. V. Tribune !
All ol the members of Congress from Con?
necticut have n aided Sergeant at-Arms Ord
way that they do not wish Mm to draw the
sums due them out ot irtb iam -us "salary
steal," as lt ls their intention not to take me
money. This officer has also received other
notifications ol like character from members
whose names will be Kept secret, and he says
other members have drawn me coney and
deposited It la the county treasury of their
county, to be applied in payment of taxes
About thirty, members wlit take this course,
and keep the tact to themselves for the pres?
ent. This appears to be ihe only manner in
which members can refund the rooney equita?
bly. If lt ls relamed to the treasury it be?
comes the property ot the government, going
to the whole people and not to the taxpayers
in the member's dlsiricr, even to euch extent
as to help make up toe sum paid to other
members who refuse to make restituiion.
There will be at least a dozen bills Introduced
on the first day of the next SHSSIOD, reduclog
the salaries of members of Congress to the old
figure, when those who have quietly disposed
ol their portion of the steal, as above Indica?
ted, will have a chance to be heard. Nobody
supposes, however, that any such bill will pass.
Latest Theory of the Tragedy.
The New York papers are still engaged la
sp?culaiing upon thu mysterious death of
Charles Goodrich, the wealthy property owner
of Brookbn, whose body was lound in a base?
ment room of one ol his buildings In the latter
city on Friday last, his head being pierced
with three bullets. Tne Brooklyn Eagle con?
tains the lollowing llieory :
That Mr. Goodrich was murdered not by a
burglar or thiel, but by a person who had some
other mot ire than that of robbery, and that
the murderer was a woman. Tnat the man
committed suicide is next to Impossible. Ihe
plxtol was lound on bis right side. Tn?re are
three wounds, two ul which are on the left
side ot the head, and either of which would
have caused insensibility. Ou thu right side
is auother wouud. To have shot himself on
the lett side with his right hand would
bare beeu almost out ol tue question,
owing to the location ol the wound? and the
direction of the tulls as traced In the skull
upon the post-mortem. To have been suffl
ciently seuslble and so persistent alter intilcl
lng the two wounds on the left side as to have
passed ihe pistol lulo the right hand and in?
flict auother wound in the right side of the
head ls altogether beyond ail precedent of
human endurance ami suicidal persistence.
The man was shot Irom behind first, with
his own pistol, In the hands ot anotner per?
son. This shot look effect behind the left ear,
and stunned the man, who could not si rugate
with uny nerve. The next shot entered his
lett temple. The third grazed his forehead,
and the iourth, he having turned around as
the murderer came around him, took effect
on the right side ol the head. He then fell,
and be tell where be lay for some lime with
his bead upon the marble floor near the
beater, where a large spot ot blood was
:"ourid. He wa9 afterward moved by his mur?
derer, so that his head lay upon the boots as
he was found. He was not kided tor bis mo?
ney, although his pocketbook was taken for
the immediate necessities of his murderer.
But hu was killed as the result ol a quarrel
with a woman, who was either Jealous of him,
or whom he had refused to marry. This ls
the theory of the reponer, a nd it will be lound
to be essentially correct ii the truth shall ever
tully be determined.
In support of tais theory facts are elven
showing that Goodrich, who boarded in New
York, had tor some months last summer been
in the habit of absenting himself for several
days together lu Brooklyn; that he was there
seen repeatedly In Intimate companionship,
generally on the stoop of a house in D.-graw
street, two houses from the one In whlcn his
body was lound, with a woman of graceful
appearance, having blonde bair abundantly
curie'1; that during the fall and winter they
were uot seen together, lut that the woman
was seen on the sireels UL unseasonably
early hours, und more iban once during the
preaeut mouth earning out of the basement
where the murder was committed, and where
Goodrich lodged; lhat In February a souffle
was beard In the basement room, aud a
woman's voice crying (or mercy, indicating ,
that ih.re had been set ions trouble. In ibe
meantime another woman appears on the
scene in Brooklyn, and ibis one, it seems,
was engaged io be married lo Goodrich. Tne ,
drat woman writes several k iters, one lo tne
father ot Goodrich, claiming that she is
already married to him, .iud that a child is
tbe fruit of ihe union, though the marriage ,
may have beeu of an illegal character. This ,
gives the clue to the mjsiery. Whether the ,
one or the other commuted the deed ls lu
question. The New York Times, leaning lo ,
the theory that ine discarded woman is the j
murderer, says: ,
'.Alter Mr. Goodrich's alleged engagement
lo the secoud lady the visita of UM drat be? ?
rame lar less frequent, PO far as can be ascer- j
tamed. Uer last visit is believed lo have been ?
made on the night of the murder. She was {
seen leaving Ihe house on Thursday morning,
between halt-past live and hall-past six o'clock. ,
Mr. Goodrich left Ihe house early lu ihe day, ,
and did not return until alter ten o'clock at ?
night. As all tbe doors were locked, lt ls bul ,
reasonable to suppose that il Hie woman re?
turned to the houee it must . have been utter ;
that hour. Die dt talla of the neath are of \
course unknown. Ia this respect it ls easily
comprehended by tbe Incident ot the letter ,
how completely the theory ol the complicity ,
of tbe woman coincides with the facia already
ascertained. lu view of these fads lt ls not
difficult to Imagine ber pleading lor herself
nod the memory ol her child. her appeal for
recompense by a legal mun l?ge, his refusal,
tben her demands lor money. It is also easy j
to imagine the relusal of Goodrich io com* [
plywitn her demands, th?n Hie wild unger
ot a wronged aid plighted woman, ihe I
snaicned-up pistol, the firing of Ihe shots, and i
Goodrich's lat! io (he fl jor. Then the cou- <
sciousuess ol her ucl, ihe return ol tue Un- '
gering love she bore him, her hope th it be 1
might have Hie left, the procuring of the '
towel with which she wiped the blood from i
bis face, the discovery that he was dead, the i
woman's horror, lear, an 1 flight by the front i
ball doui, which she closed behind her, leav- i
ing the ho 'se nil fasiened, us ll was lound,
probably a lew hours afterward. All Ibis can 1
be well imagined." i
A telegram from New York, yesterday, gives !
another twist to the tangled web of doubts ,
overhanging the case, as lollows: i
The Goodrich mystery is yet unsolved. It j
ls staled ibat the building of a row of brown-ff
Btone frouts on Degraw s'reet, Brooklyn, io- :
volved the supposed murdered man heavily ?
In debt, and that he ls not wealthy, as at hr.-1
supposed. It appears that the so-called bloody
Bhirt lound lu the bouse where Ibe murder .
was committed had no blood n tal ns whatever
on lu and had no buttons turn off, but was
simply soiled. The chief of police of Brook?
lyn still holds t) the theory that Goodrich
commuted suicide, and that the cause was i
financial embarrassment. i

\ European Opinion of President
Grant's Views.
[From the London Times, Marche.]
We are unable to share the "firm convie
lion expressed by Presldeut Grant "(bat the
civilized world Is tending toward Republican
Ism," and thai ihe great Amerlc in Republic 1B
"destined lo be the guiding-star of all other
countries." In one seuse the civilized world
has always been tending In the direction of
Republicanism. The most civilized Stales of
antiquity, until very shortly before the
Christian era, were In fact. Republic:), and the
Italian Republics ot' Ihe middle ages contrast
lavorably In science and the aits with Hie
[eudai monarchies ol ihe same period. A
fresh and more powerful lmuiilse was given
to Republicanism by Its establishment and
succecB In the Uulted Stales. France hastened
to lollow ann improve Hie example, and though
on the whole constitutional monarchy and
Imperialism have prevailed in ihe struggle
winch began with the French revolution,
.'the Republic," as lt ls absurdly called, la In
Hie ascendaut just now bolh In France and
Spain. On ihe other hand, not only have
men learned to recognize the vices and weak?
ness Inherent In Republicanism where politi?
cal virtue does not rise above Hie ordinary
level, but it bas also been discovered lhall all
the chief beuedls of Republicanism may be
obtained under a monarchy. There ls no
Republican party wotlliy ol the name in
England, because lt is almost impossible to
conceive any republican privilege wulch the
country would enjoy under a presiden;,
which lt could not have, if lt chose, under a
prime raiulster to-morrow. The same may
be said ot' Haly; and it Spain thinks proper
lo maintain the existing Republican Govern?
ment tbeie may be lees order, but lhere
cannot be more llnerty lhau Spaniards en
Joyed under Klug Amadeus. As lor Presi?
dent Gram's allegation that under a republic
ihe United States are enabled to dispense
with large armaments, it must surely be ob?
vious that a monarch In Ihe same geograph
cal position could do the sume. Meanwhile,
every day's experleuce illustrates afresh the
supreme advantage of a monarchy-the ad?
vantage of the higheet social position of Hie
State belog preserved from becoming a con?
stant lure to political ambition. M. Gambella
lately told au American visitor that France
had no special admiration tor the ss Stem Of
elective judges as tested In the United 8tates.
It has yet io be seen whether France herself
will endure a periodical competition lor an
elective presidency; and, lo Bpite of the large
German population of America, we doubt
whether even German Republicans would de?
sire to Impon this German institution Into
Qermany. Tnat Presidential elections, with
the consequent alvlslon of the spoils, have
not utterly demoralized tbe Uulted States,
proves the capacity of the American people
for self-government and the healthy vigor of
their municipal life. That enormous corrup?
tion and other evils flow directly from ibis
source ls notorious, especially Just now; and
lt ls by no means sen-evident that Republi?
canism ls worth purchasing at euch a prue.
The Pall Mall Gazette says : '-It may be

Our water power, owiug to loss of dam, has
>een expensive. We now have about eighteen

ieve lt strong, and apprehend no danger of
ls giving way. I am also satisfied ihat by
jutilng in strictly first-class sheels we have
imple power to drive as much more ma
?hlnery as we now have. I have already or
iered twenty-eight new looms, lour ol which
lave arr.ved and are now In operation.
By availing ourselves of all the power we
lave, and doubling our machinery, we can
jperate relatively at a less cost of production
than now.
I would therefore recommend that you eu
horlze the directors to Increase our capital
stock, when they deem lt expedient, to euch
in amount as will be necessary to enable us ,
Lo use all the power we have.
The Relatives of Denmark Vesey tn
Court - Auditor Bennett as a Will
A curious aod complicated will case was de?
cided yesterday ia the Court of Common
Pleas, to which court lt had been taken by an
appeal lrom the decision of Probate Judge
Buist. The decedent was an old colored
woman by the name of Hannah Vesey, relict ot
one Denmark Vesey, a son of the notorlons
Denmark Vesey, who was the leading spirit In
the famous negro Insurrection of 1822, and who,
wliu twenty or thirty of his followers, paid
the penalty of his rash attempt upon the gal
lows during the administration of Governor
Bennett. She was always free, and be
lore the war was well known to most of 11
the residents of Charleston as a thrifty, well
to-do market woman, oooupylng a stall tn J
the city market, where she drove a flourishing I
trade In butter, cheese, eggs and poultry, In <
the course of whloh she amassed a very re-1 '
speotable competence, her property being es-1 <
tlmated to be worth,- at the beginning of the 11
war, some twenty thousand dollars. She
never had any children, and she appears to I t
have long ago bestowed her affections upon i
the four children of a sister of here, named
Blnah Gadsden, who waa then a slave belong-1 ]
lng to Mrs. Ann S. Smith. In 1837 she pur?
chased ibis sister and her four children, who (
are now grown up and narced respectively I '
Ann Matthews, Rosanna Holmes, Betsy Prloe c
and Titus Gadsden, aod brought up the ch il- (
dren, giving them some degree ot edu?
cation, although still keeping them in I
nominal servitude because lit was lmpossl- i
ble for ber, under the then existing laws, to [
make them free by a deed or emancipation.
She always manifested a considerable degree c
of affection lor these nleoes, and she appears I 1
to have endeavored, som: lime before the 11
war, to provide for their comfort and support 13
after her death. It was, of course, at that t
time Impossible for her to bequeath ber prop-1 '
erty to them either directly or through true- C
tees, for being slaves, they were not compe-1 {
tent lo hold any properly, and a wi il was .
drawn out at ber request by Colonel Wm.
Wbaley, io which she left all all her real and I {
personal estate, Including the nieces, ber I
slaves, to MeBsre. John Y. Slock, William C. I r
Bee, and the late Dr. Edward North, three
prominent and wealthy gentlemen o? this eli v, I JJ
and In whom she bed every reason to place the I ?
utmost confidence. It is hardly to be supposed, j j
however, that thlsbt quest from the humble I
market woman to these three wealthy gentle- I e
men was intended for their own enrichment, I
sod the more natural theory ls that Mrs. ?
Vesey meant thereby to place ber nieces in
kind hands -od thus lo provide for their com-1 (
fort and support after ber death. Anolber I ,
will of a similar nature was drawn for her by L
the same gentleman. Colonel Whaley, during I ^
Ihe early years of the war, somewhere about
the lime ol the battle of Secession ville, lor tbe I (
ola woman appeared lo have had a pen- l{
chant for will-making, but as neither ,
of these wills have been produced, the
supposition ls ibat she destroyed them
alter the war, when the emancipation of the j
alav?s and ihe consequent chances in the laws
left her more free lo follow ber own Inclina-1
lions and affections In the poslbumous dis
posai of ber properly. She then appears lo j '
have taken again io will making, ibis time J (
entrusting her indi raclions to Ihe new crop of I j
legal luminaries of ber own color who sprang
up after the war, and have flourished apace
ever since upon the proceed* of Just such I
cases aa this. In 1866 she called in General I
W. J. Whipper, to whom she gave Instructions
for a will, which he prepared and read over to 1
her, she being unable lo read or write, and IJ
which abe signed by her mark and preserved, j '
This will gave the principal ponton ot J
Ihe properly (0 her husbaud, Denmark I {
Vesey (since dead) and her nephew and I c
nieces, whom she bad bought and brought up, I ,.?
and left the remainder to Whipper. This will, I ?
however, was never produced, and ihe sup-1 j
position ls that the old woman, probably after 11
getting some better educated neighbor to read I ?J
lt over to her. destroyed this will, as she bad *
her two former ones.
At this lime Mrs. Vesey was the matron ol J
tbe Old Folks' Home, a wonhy Institution 1|?
where feeble or aged colored people are cared ^
for at tbe expense of tbe city, and she was j
thus brought Into official relations with Sam-11
uel L. Bennett, a colored man, who was then I u
connected with ihe Freedmen's Bureau, and I c
who IB now well known as the present county 11
auditor of Charleston County. She be-11
came wei! acquainted with him, and he Ic
soon became her general adviser, 11
factotum and mao of business. Ia March, 1870, I 1
Mr. Bennett, who was then a trial Justice, huv- I ^
lng bis office In Military Hall, Wentworth
street, called lo to bis office Ibree neighbors, I
Messrs. Wm. Robb, Thomas McCarthy and R. I v
M. Alexander, asking them to step In for a n
moment to witness a signature. There they j c
lound Mrs. Vesey seated wllh a paper lying on F
the table before ber, which she said, In an-1 *
swer to a question lrom Bennett, was her 1D
will, and which she signed by across mark, I ^
aller which Ihe three gentlemen affixed their
signatures as witnesses, not doubling but that I (
everything was corred and In due form.
Oo January 1st, 1872, the old woman died,
und was buried und dutifully mourned by her I
loving relatives r.ud expectant heirs, and as I 1
soon ar 'p..ouble lime had elapsed ibey J I
dried their tears and proceeded In a body to I ?
the office uf Trial Justice Bennett to attend 11
the ceremony ol reading the will. They were j C
received by Benneil with all due respect and *
sympathy, and furnished by him with a paper j
which they were told io take to the probate 1
Judge, George Buist, Esq., who would ac- 1
quainl ihem wllh the contents ot their ailee- ?j
tlunate relative's last will and testament. <
They accordingly proceeded to lhat gentle- j f
mau's office, presented the document with j
wblob they were armed, and seated themselves (
lu a little semicircle, with their clean hand-1 *
kerchiefs up to their eyes, ready, at the prop- J j
er moment, to bewail the loss of their generous 11
and beloved aunt. The will was read, but t
tbeir lamentations turned to astonishment |
and iheir while handkerchiefs were crammed I,
back to the pockets of their alpaca Babies, 11
when they found that to each of the nieces 11
was given a life use ol I wo rooms in certain I ?
small shanties in Hasel street, and to the I ?
nephew the sum ot twenty dollars In cash, I <
while to Mr. Samuel L. Bennett, who was ?
made sole executor, was bequeathed a valu- j
able residence on Spring street, which coa I
stltuted the most desirable portion of their '
venerable relative's estate. They departed ,
from tbe office of the probate Judge speech- 1
less with consternation, but Anding their
tongues by the time they returned to
j Bennett's office, they demanded of him,
i with no small agitation and vehemence, I
wbat waa the meaning of the extraordinary
will. Mr. Bennett blandly Inquired what
were the contents of tbe will, and they retort?
ed by asking how it was possible that he
hadn't known all about the will all the time.
AU this amounted to nothing, however, and
the disconsolate nephew and niece then pro?
ceeded to peur their sad recital into the pro?
fessional ears of Messrs. W h al ey h Ml nott,
who undertook to conduct their case before
the courts, and to restore them to tbeir heri?
Ihe case was then tried and argued be?
fore Probate Judge Buist, and bis decision
was n favor of the will. An appeal was
taken from tbla decision to the Court of Com?
mon Pleas, the grounds of the appeal being
as follows :
The paper propounded at the will of Han?
nah Vesey ought not to be admitted to pro?
1. Because lt appears that the decedent
:ould neither read nor write, and there Is no
evidence ot knowledge ot the contents.
2. Because ibe proponent ls sole executor
md principal leeatee, and bad the conduct of
the execution of tbe paper propounded.
3. Because the proponent, who Is executor,
ind was the attorney, principal legatee and
san ot business of the deceased, ana that tbe
laper was either drawn hy him or one of bis
clerks, and there ls no proofs of Instructions,
'eadlng over or knowledge ot contents.
4. Because In the cases above mentioned
he onus probandi ls on proponent to show
lometblng beyond the ordinary execution and
utestation ot the paper.
5. Because the acknowledgment on the
)art of decedent that lt was her will, If proved
wmild be insufficient.
6. Because the paper was obtained by un
lue Influence, which may be Inferred lrom
.he facts mentioned In the first three grounds.
7. Because tbe will is unnatural and lnoffl
?ious, and the onus probandi ot knowledge o?
??rnenla and ot fairness is on the proponent.
8. Because so far as any evidence of knowl
idee appears it Is Inconsistent wllh ihe will,
ind the contestants have shown, BO far as the
ullng of the court admitted, declarations of
be decedent showing an entire want of
tnowledge ot the contents.
9. Because the circumstances [of suspicion
leveloped In this case, unexplained, areevl
lence that the will In this case waa obtained
brough iraud.
10. Because ihe decedent was advanced In
?ears, and her capacity was doubtful, and the
iroponent and legatee having drawn the will,
t was Incumbent on him lo prove knowledge
if the contents ol the will.
It will be seen that the theory of the con
estants was that ihe will was drawn up by
bennett; that the old woman had little or no
tnowledge of Ita contents, and that he bad
aken good eare to appropriate to himself the
nost valuable pan of the property. The case
?ame on for trial last Tuesday, and Bennett, i
vho was represented by Messrs. Whaley ?
mitchell, of course denied all these surmises
ind assenions of the contestants. The trial i
asted two days, and a very large number
>f witnesses were examined. Bennett 1
wore positively that he did not draw j
ip the will, but, on the other hand, i
l?verai experts gave lt as their opinion, 1
titer examining many papers written by him,
hat the whole will was in his handwriting,
fue history of Ihe old woman's life, her rela?
tons to the contestants, her former wills, Ac,
vere all elicited io the testimony, and, aller
?lab?rate arguments by counsel on both sides,
ind a clear and Impartial charge by Judge
}i om, the case waa given to tbe jury on
Wednesday" evening. Yesterday morning
hey rendered a verdict to the effect that the
)aper propounded was not the last will and
eslament of Hannah Vesey, and judgment
vas entered accordingly. The effect of this
lecislon will be lo restore the property to'the
?ephew and nelces, who are (he helrs-at-law,
tod who, after all their troubles, will now
?time Into possession by the due course of

Commodore Vanderbilt's Half-Million
Dollar Donation.
[From the Western Methodist, Memphis.]
It IB wllh no ordinary gratification that we '
innounce t* our readers the reception of dia?
nne h es ai ibis efflce oa Tuesday last convey- 1
ng intelligence mat Commodore Vanderbilt,
pf New Turk, has given, through .Bishop Mc*
'yeire, $500,000 to the endowment lund of ibe
Central University of Ihe Methodist Episcopal
Church, South. The Central University be
fan to lake lorm at the convention held In
iemphls, January 21-27, 1872, uuder the aus
ilcea ot eight annual coherences. After
borough discussion the convention unanl
nously adopted the following resolutions, viz: :
L'hat ll shall consist at present of five schools
ir departments-viz.. a theological school
or the trainiug of o?r young preachers, !
vho, on application lor admission, sha 1
iresent a recommendation from a quarterly
>r annual conference, and shall have obtained
i standard ol education < qual to that required
br admission on trial Into an annual oonfer
?nce; and Instruction to them shall be free, I
joth in the theological and the literary and 1
identifie departments. Secoodly, a literary
ind scientific school. Thirdly, a normal (
ichool. Fourthly, a law school. Fifthly, a
nedlcal school That the sum of one million
lollars ls necessary In order to realize fully
.he object desired, and not less than five hun
ired thousand dollars must be secured as a
jondltlon precedent to lb? opening of any de?
triment of the university. The grand gift
31? commodore Vanderbilt completes . the
imount required under the acilen of the cou
feniloo of Memphis, and set forth in the char?
ier as a condition precedent to ihe opening ot
my department of the Geniral University.
The location ot the institu? lon is wisely com?
mitted to ihe College of Bishops, wbo in due
time will, as they have promised, perform ihe
duly laid upon them.

Tbe Wall ot a Party Organ-Prospec?
tive Rattling Among tne Republican
Dry Bone?-A "Vacuum in tbe Treas?
As the best evidence of tbe sincere desire
ot THE NEWS to wash its hinds ol tte canning
conspiracy which is alleged to exist against
the prosperity sod the pocket ol the Republi?
can party of South Carolina, we reproduce
for the edification of Conservative readers tbe7'
latest blast of our perspiring yoong contem?
porary, the Columbia Herald, on the subject
ol ire Blue Bldge scrip:
[From the Colombia Herald, March 26.]
Tbe Inevitable Result.
Our contemporary, THE NEWS, considers lit
'.very tunny" thal we should regard the scrip'
as a'Democratic ambuscade, a trap set, a
branch limed to trip the advancing step of
the State administration. ?
Now, we bad proposed to say a word or two,
about the aot proper, to which we are lodebt-.
ed tor this peculiar obligation to pay one mil?
lion eight hundred tbonsand dollars more or"
less; but we shall once more endeavoPto en?
force the Idea, not that tbe Dem?crata'
originated the Boheme, but that they see
plainly enough Its financial effect upon the
lorin ces of the parly In power, and mat they
stand ready lo push the advantage to the ot
The Republican party of this State have not
forgotten, and can never forget, the desperate
energy with wniob the Democracy, and more
particularly our distinguished NEWS, labored
.0 destroy the credit of the State and luduee
ne people to refuse to pay the taxes. This
was the fight in 1868. It was the beginning
)i that "war to the knlte, and the knife to the
lill," the hopelessness of whicb has Just been
realized by the opposition. Now, wost they
vere unable to compass, ve propose io aceom
)llsh for them in tne making and redeeming
)f this scrip. In other words, the death
aruggle through which we have successfully
passed ls to be renewed among ourselves, and
.be knife which we wrenched from the band'
y a Democrat ls to be plunged imo the heart
)f the party by the baud ot a Bepub ii can. We
sropose In our prosperity lo commit suicide.
Sow ? Plain enoutih; in this wise :
The coming decisions will verv soon make
receivable tor taxes and payable lor all de?
J( bills Rank of the state, say..$2,000,000
Jf certlflcateB for loans from savings
inst itu lions say. 1,000,090'
jr revenue bond scrip (taking ror grant
id ne over Issue) say. 1,800,000'
Tbat is, total receivable for taxes and
payable for all demands, say.$4,800,000
Now tbe taxes ibis year, exclu Ive of thc
school appropriation, we understand, ls near?
ly all exhausted.
Next year, with the same tax, and three
mills besides- that ls, eighteen mills, exclu?
sive of whatever further tax*may be necessary
10 meet the Interest on tbe debt, If we nave
any-we will have at the utmost bul $3.294,000,
every cent o? which, enormous as the amount
Is, will be, ot course, paid Into the treasury In
inytblrg else than in greenbacks, because
lhere will .ba on tbe market, selling ak a
heavy discount, nearly five million dollars of :
these 'milis receivable."
Tne treasury will be lull ol vacuum, and a
desperate state of things wonld supervene,
which would compel the administration to do
one of three things, either of which would be.
fatal to its reputation. Toe stuffed treasury '
would bave to be relieved by retiring the
s iM fi" in bonds, and by Increasing the debt that
lar, which, without a vote of the people, ls,,
perhaps, against the recent amend me nu Ia
which case, there would be neither bl Wa nor
money, and a special tax wonld have to be
levied large enough to absorb, not only the
balaoce of stuff on the market, bot to supply
the bard cash to pay members' claims, et id
ovine genus-the ordinary expenses .of the
State Government. If this was not done, then
the stuff would have io be received- ano) paid
out as well, and tbe market would be flooded,i o
the utter exclusion of tbe genial greenback, so
(ar as State luods were concerned..-1 besame
thing would continue from year to year, od
infinitum. Ot a heavy tax of, say thirty mills,
would have lo be levied and the stuff retired.
Increasing ibe debt pro rata, lt tho stuff
could not be retired ou account ot the amend?
ment requiring a vote o? the people, then lt:
would have to be paid out or destroyed or
withdrawn in some other way. It such a
heavy tax was levied, as seems at this time
Inevitable, there would be such an ornery
about platform pledges and so forth tbat the.
administration would find the responsibility,'
together with the debt, more than it could
succ?s?fully carry before any constituency,
however loyal and subservient.
Now, does THE NEWS or any other Demo?,'
eratic organ mean to say ibat such a consum?
mation is not most devoutly wished lor by :
that cunning side of the house ?
Do they not boast that they bave, the'
money to buy up all this stuff at tbe lowest
price at which they can manipulate tbe mar?
ket '
Would they not hold tbe purse strings of,
this people, and bold In avise the great artery
that supplies the life b ood of the party iu this
state? Can any sane man doubt that their .
silence upon this Imminent flood ol bills re-,
receivable is ominous of the gathering storm
tbat will break npon the administration In tills
event? SM
We could carry this argument mach,
further and show the Inevitable loss, rain, litt-,
gallon, disaster, faction, murmuring and vio?
lence that will ensue, every item of which
will be laid with curses at the door of this
administration, bat this ls enoagh for this
artlole. _
