/IftwihYd, Thnt the plank In the platform of
tho State Republican Convention which up*
proved of making tho canals free, and demanded
n constitutional amondaicntto that effect. meets
our hearty npprovnl.
/hvolrcd, That tho benefit nf governmental
control ol tho monos of transportation, In tho
cheapening of freight during tho season In
which nm canals are open, brings »ho people
face to face with mean miestlon*: "Why should
not (ho rates be cheapened when tho canals aw
closet V" and " Mow can that ho obtained'/"
That tho only answers that can bo
given arc. to tho llrst, that thoro is no
reason why they cannot; that there Is no
natural compact between tee and 'monopoly
To the second, that only by tho Hiatus'owner*
ship nf the rallwavs, as of tho canal, can tho
legitimate prollt of tho producers nf tho West
and the cheapcntngnf price to thu consumers of
the Bast tie assured.
That tho fnrestaller. who fur personal
gain raises the price of human food and other
necessaries of existence, has rightfully and at
all times been regarded us tho enemy of his
follows, and by tho common law of civilization
as a criminal. •

In his sphere, produces precisely tho same re
sults upon society as thu forestaller. As tho
existence of these classes adds to tho cost of
production* by diminishing tho number nf pro
ducers and Increasing the number of consumers,
that It is the business of progressive society tu
get rid of them as rapidly as possible.
/tonriml, That no man ts at peace with society
except by an harmonious adjustment of his
('iicmiies. Ho thu happiness of a nature is In
direct proportion to the Justice In it. That all
' agitation for closer relation between consumer
and producer Is indicative of progress. That

NO PIOAMV ABOUT IT.
John Vance, u laborer living nt the roar of Xo.
18iit Wabash avenue, mid employed in a livery
stable near by. Is locked up at tho Armory
charged with bigamy. From all that could be
learned of tho ease John Is a eouehnmn by occu
pation. Many years ago, while ho was bat 11)
years of age, hu sallied forth from his home at
Highland Park ami took unto himself a wife
from among the maidens of Evanslim. After
liveyears of belter and wor.'o mixed tho wife
left tho boil and board of her
liege lord, ami since that time has
not made her whereabouts known iu
the man she left behind her. Tho deserted hus
band was mu so bowed down by the weight of
Ids alliletlou that ho lost all interest in woman
kind. for he shortly thereafter struck up n
friendship and Intimacy with another woman
whine name John religiously withholds, hut who
Ims been uaonrluinud to he Mary Kelly. Thu
two took up lodgings together and have ever
since lived as man and wife In tho greatest har
mony. A trouble has of late arisen In tho per
son of John A. Kelly, of Xo. 1:11 West Twelfth
street—a brother to tho aforesaid woman. This
nine, Inspired with displeasure at his sister's
lack of a sense of propriety, now attempts to
sever the ties which bind by having Vance ar
rented lor bigamy, when Iho facts arc, so it Is
miiliorutlvcly stated, that no marriage continuity
has been observed iu the case In point.

of the rural New Vurk press at least are not tuo

paragraph mads us billows:
“Mr. Hnslgn ihmnett, of Indiana, tho con*

Themeanliiß of this blind advertisement Is
best explained by trivia# tbo following conver

who appeared In claim the reward mid tho pur
son who ntVcied It, said conversation having
come by mysterious ways into tho possession of
tbo reporter:
Said tho Heiitlcumn: “ Is your name —? n

” Did you leave any one at tho streets which

-I did."
“Wa* It one person, or more?"
“Thoro were four."

“Tho northeast corner.''
•• Did (bey all get mu iimro?"
•• Now look hero. Where Is tbo reward?
Want to see a little nmmiy before 1 gunny fur
ther in this answering of <|uestPms."
Then tho man who wa* anxious to know pulled
out a note. Tho haekmau thanked him, and
said:
*• What was your last <juesthm?"
” Did they all got out there'"
” Vcs. They all got mil, and started aero**
tbo street west, but seeing some gentleman ap
parently watching them they went back in thu
liack and had some words. One of •• ladle*
said. * I bellovu that I* my husband
watching me,’ 8o they concluded she should
get back Into tbo carnage and go further. So 1
took her up around Leavitt and down Walnut,
ami shu ordered me to slop and she got out, und
1 went about my business.”
•• Da yon know those parlies?”
" I know tho two gentlemen and one of tbo

•• Which one—lho one that got back Into tho

•• No. tho other one,"
•• Will you give mo’iholr name.*?"
"Ves; thu gentleman who wont olf alone was

” Did von know the lady who loft you ut Ful

'l'ho break In the grain corner at this point
ahum tbo middle of thu week has had the ettcct
of stimulating . east-bound freight shipments
Irmn this point during (ho last three days to
such an extent that Instead of a decrease In
shipments as would have been tho result thoro
was quite an Increase fur tho week. Tho small
amount nf grain shipped while tho corner
lasted enabled tbo Eastern roads to raise In
n great measure the freight blockade* from
which they have been suffering at most of the
principal points, and cm*? are now much more
abundant than be I ore. Owing to tho low rail
rates now prevailing, must nj the east-bound
business Is being shipped by rati, the lake Hues
not being able to make much competition at
such rates. Thu Mississippi bargo lines are
Mill less able to compete Gian the lake
lines, all which Is telling severely upon
Mr. Gould, whoso principal Interest Is
In the barge lines. But even If they could com
pete thuy would not be able to do any business
nt present owing to tno freight blockade at Ht.
Louis. All tho lines leading there trom this city
have given enters to their agents not to take
Ht. Louts business until further notice, ami as
much freight Is plied npat East HI. Louis, It may
be some ttmu buture they will bo able to rescind
tho order.
Tbe principal cause of (be St. T.tmls blockade
Is tbo Inability of the Bridge and Tunnel Com
pany to handle all the business at that point.
While It is conceded that tho bridge Company
could handle much more business If properly
mummed, yet it is admitted that the railroad
Hues running to; that point have so largely in
creased that even with the best of management
the bridge cannot handle oil the business
to bo transferred from one side of
tho river to (bo nthor. Much of tbo
present dlllhmlty nt St. bonis could
bo overcome by trnnsforrlug freight by tho
ferry lines, but tho grout trouble is to got trans
portation fro3i tbo Jcvcy tu the depot, us there
is a scarcity of horses, a majority of them being
sick with the *• pink eye." Thom (roubles nt St.
bools have again brought to (ho surface tho
project of building another bridge nt tit. I,mils
above tho present one, it being argued that
sooner or later the constntollon of uu additional
bridge wilt become necessary If St. bonis wants
to remain tho gateway to the Southwest.
Since oast-hound freight shipments Item this
oily are being made mure freely rales have
somewhatHtltfoncu tip. undU!l« cents on grain
from Chicago Is now generally asked. Tho
Pennsylvania Company has established tho role
to charge Invariably two cents pur UNI pounds
less than the New Vork rate to Phlladeljilihiiuid
three ccntslcssto Ihtltlmore. lu accordance with
this rule It Is taking gram to Philadelphia at
IhU emits pur lOtl pound?, and to Jlalthnoro nt
P's emits. It does this to Impress upon Vander
bilt that It Ims no Idea, according to his demand,
that mo rales should be (lio same to all seaboard
points. Tho Pennsylvania people say Vendor*
Pilt shows no eoosistenuy in this matter. While
he demands that tho Pennsylvania shoo Id charge
less lo I’nlladelphlu nnd llalUiiioro on the
freight business, although the distance
to tho latter points Is much less
than to New Vork, be insists
on tbo other hand that tho Perinsylvmiia hits nu
right to take passengers to Ilusiun via New
York at tho same rate us bo docs via Albany
because tho Albany ruuto Is nearer than tbo

GAUUKTT AND VANDKIUULT.
«Yru> Fork .Vail, Oct. «.
As somo uno has taken thu trouble to send us
a marked copy of that nblo and generally Jn*
dlclon* Journal, tho Halthnoru Amcr/enn, eon*
tulmugMr. Uarrett’s voluminous and verPoso
attack on Mr. Vanderbilt and an uppluudlug
editorial thereon, we (eel called on to say sumo*
thing about tbo controversy which has been
started by tho Ulillogulshod “ railroad king" of
Ualtlmoie.
As wo published Mr. Vanderbilt* brief, torso,
and somewhat contemptuous reply to Mr. liar*
tett’s prolix assault on tho former, our readers
peed not be told that tbo policy pursued by Mr.
Vanderbilt requires no defense at our hands.
Whoever will take tho trouble to go through
the waste of words wherewith Mr. Garrett seeks
to obscure the real facta in issue, will see In the
statements or Mr. Vanderbilt abundant reasons
for the rtiffo and verbosity of the former.
The history at the present “war of rates*'ls
susceptible of very brief statement. Mr. Van*
derbilt condenses It when he says:
** If the New Vork Central has stood alone at
the trunk-him meetings, it has generally boon
upon questions ntrcctlng not only Us welfare,
but that of lhe mate and City of New Vork as
well. Its olTorts to protect or resistencroach
tuenls upon the commerce which rlglitliillv be
longs In this port always oneoiiiiter mo hostility
of muds whose Interests are Identical with the
eitlei of their own mates which am tholv natu
ral termini.
• These linos, and especially tho lbdtlmoro&
Ohio, seek by expensive connections in much
territory naturally served by the New Vork Cen
tral and Its connections, mid then strike at It In
two way# by secret lyenttlnjr rates. Ilrst In diver
sions of trnlllu from New Vork to their cities,
and next by lower contracts to our own point*
nnd termini. When we discover this violation
of pood faith, amt make our rates conform to
theirs, they naturally cry out that we are do
morallxluir (he business and mining tho prop
erties. ...
•‘ No mattor>hathor It In Now Vork, Now Kn
glnnd, I'nlladelphlu, or ilaltlmere business, all
wo ask Is that It shall be fairly adjusted; and If
the adjustment Is not maintained it will be be
cause tho New Vork Central discovers, us it did
prior to the present so-called war. that it was
boluir cheated, and somebody had broken faith.
We nave ent nu rales; we have mot them.
Whatever any ether lino was willing to carry
for, we were ready to fellow on tho same terms.
If nt the same rates a larger share of tno busi
ness comes to us than Is pleasant to our rivals,
wo emmet help It; only they cannot expect ns
to submit quietly to their etferls to establish an
equilibrium by slieklnjrn knife Into one of our
arteries.
•• It is not for tho purpose of crushing tho non
sirueiton of parallel lines that I have sought to
maintain tho rights of tho rend of which I am
President. The fact, as 1 have stated before,
that we have not out rates, but simply followed
the rates tlxed bv onr rivals, not only refutes
tho charge, bid fastens upon Mr. Garrett and
hts coadjutors (no fault of discouraging the new
schemes,”
As it Is impossible testate tho facts, and tho
policy of tho New Vurk Central, In uny fewer, or
titter, ormore truthful words than tuose of Mr.
Vanderbilt, wo have reprinted them ns acom-
plutu answer to the voluminous invectives, mis
statements, false deductions, and Irrelevant ar
guments of Mr. Garrett, whoso tedious and un
readable broadside Is u prolonged wall of de
spair, In view of tho steadiness, composure, and
resolution with which tho New Vork Central is
meeting a war that was unprovoked and that Is
n continuing peril to tho legitimate Interests mid
administration of all tho railroad property in
the country.
Our. llaltlmoro cotmnpornry, tbo Anur/cnn,
makes one mistaken lu regarding Mr. Garrett's
reckless and ent-tlireat methods us likely to
tend to tho permanent interests of llaltlmoro.
if ho Is right In his claims of the vastly superior
advantages of tho llaltlmoro & Ohio as a trims
porterof Jrclgbt from tho West to tho ."onboard,
he has no occasion to snurlllee the property he
is managing l»v doing business at losing rates,
in order tu accomplish tho impossible task of
bringing tho New York Central to terms of (us
own matting. Mr. Garrett beasts that "If tbo
direct and valuable faculties of the llaltlmoro
St Ohio Hoad (mure direct mid more valuable, Pi
many eases, lor the region it penetrates Ilian
any other lino) could be fairy and properly used
by tho merchants of Now York, Instead of b!j
per cent, 15 per cent of tno business of New
York would be mxumnmled by that route.”
lie asks: "Whilst tho llaltlmoro Sc Ohio Hoad
reaches directly through its mrtj Hues many
points, great entrepots mid centres of trade lit
tho West which tho New York Central docs not
reach by its own linos, shall any one question
tho right of the New Vurk Central Hoad lo do
business at Pittsburg nr Columbus, at Cln
elntml I. or Louisville, or tit. Louis, or nny of the
numerous points which iho Now Vork Central
Kond docs net even profess to reach by Now
Vork Central lines?
Mo argues:
” Tho ibiltlmuro St Ohio has tho advantages of
distance (u llaltlmoro us compared with tho
Now Vork Central to Now York—namely:
Mile*.
From Chicago 140
From tit. (.mils *d4U
From Louisville.
From Cincinnati,
hI pm-
Diis mil
tiled to
ok pro*
Anil from all points south of Baltimore—viz.:
tho distance from Baltimore to Now York..lßS
“It also bins proven fur a series of years that
Its expenses of operating show it to bo thu
cheapest road of tho mink lines, and to quote
from evidence given before the spocial Assem
bly Committee on Hallroads of New York in
Hitt) on bubuiC of tho New .York trunk linos: ‘lt
is the cheapest road of the trunk lines to oper
ate from tnu fact that It runs a areal portion of
Us distance through must valuable eoalllelds.
Whilst tbo New York Central Is paying SH, or sl.
or s'> a tun for Us coat, tbo lialifmoru .V Ohio
eau bring it out of tho pit and dump It Into the
ear of the engine at a cost possibly of 8J or VO
cents a ton. Thu advantage it has In point of
fuel far overbalances any advantage tbo Now
Yurk Central may have In grades."
’ Admitting all of mono easily disproved asser
tions, why is it that Mr. Garrett's lino cannot
compete successfully with tho Now York Cen
tra iy No one knows better than he nous that
the advantages which ho claims for his road am
Imaginary, when loose of tho New York Central
are considered. Tho easy grades ami tho lour
trucks of tho latter allow tho movement of
freight with far greater speed attainable and
with a uuarter ol the power roipilredon the
heavy grades and cluttered tracks of tho Baltl
iuoro&Ohio. Way should Mr. Garrett throw
away all his advantages of position in a vain
slriigglutostualnway from New York lines tbo
traihe that naturally belongs to them'/ What Is to
bo gained for iialtimuru In cither compelling
thu tmilic that must coino over tho Baltimore ,vs
Ohio to be taxed for u senseless npd costly
struggle fur tho tmllle that thu Now York Cen
tral and tho Brio can handle ho much more
cheaply'/ Boonur or later tho legitimate tmllle
of tho Ualthnoro Si Ohio must pay for Mr. Gar
rett's cosily mid disastrous Northern campaign.
And Baltimore will not escape from tbo results
thereof.

Mr. Vanderbilt Is trampill aud determined,

far us pnrohasiug slock Is concerned, the work
of Vanderbilt, as well as all otbors, must have

tboro bad been no unusual amount of stock

conclusion that Vanderbilt hud not secured ab
solute ownership of Miillleient stock to uuntrul

Tho Detroit Pu«( Mini Tribune snyst *• Tho pa
pers Just now nfo full of comment* on thoevl*
dout discrimination of VoudorbUt against nil
tho railroads under his control in favor of tbo
Now York Central. Hut tbero Is anothor kind
of discrimination that tbu people of Detroit urc
more interested In tlmn anything of ibis kind.
Tbo mutter concerns tho people of tho entire
southern part of tuo State. It is tho grip which
the l.alto Shore & Michigan Southern Hallway Is
obtaining on everything south of tbo lino of tho
Michigan Central llallroud. A short tlmo ngo
tbu Detroit, UllUdalo & Southwestern Hoad
went over to tbo majority, and it is
freely predicted tbut in less than throe
mouths too Fort Wayno & Jackson
will bavo Joined tbo same lunumurnbio

log those road* under <mu control tbero would
bo no objection; the l.ako Bboro A: Michigan
Bombcrn Is well ollicered and ably managed. Its
road-bed* uiuVrolllug-sioek are well kept up.
All this Is well. Hut not n bushel of grain
comes to Detroit over any road owned by tho
Luke bhuru & Michigan southern. TUo wheat
and oats grown on tho lino of tbo Detroit, Hills*
dale Sc Buiithwesteru and tbu Fort Wayne Si
Jueltson should by all rights cornu to Detroit;
but If It comes hero It will perhaps go by one
road and perhaps by another, nnd Vanderbilt
muy loso (ho freight on it. So the currying of
It via Toledo Is secured by a discrimination in
rates. This Is, of eounw, u business transaction
bu far os the l.ako Ktjore & Michigan Hutnheru is
concerned, but it hurts Detroit. Thu methods
taken by the Lake Shorn to aeeure to It the car
rying of grain are wise and generous— for tbo
road. Shipper* uro given to understand that tho
road will stick by Its iriooits; and when there Is
u quantity of wheat in a section ot country, tho
dealers uud shippers aro encouraged to buy It,
with promises of good rates, which promlsesara
kept, Only opo road coming through the south
; part of tho State Is free from Lake Show cou*
trol. This Is tho Wabash. Tho point of nil this

THE BURGESS CORPS.
Their llopiirtnro for Si. Lanin Lint
Night—A Visit from (ho Union Vet
eran <Tnb,
Yesterday was tho Inst day of tho Albany Bur
goss Corps’ stay In this city, and last evening
tuoy loft for HU Louis, tholr next stopping
place. Yesterday morning, u number of tbo
visitors attended divine service in Central
Music-Hall, and tn tho afternoon they wore
driven about tbo city by members of tho various
city regiments. Un tho whole tho day was
pleasantly {passed and tho Albanians expressed
tuomseives bs highly pleased with Chicago aud
berpoo pie.
At about D o'clock Inst evening some eighty
members of
TUB UNION VKTKBAN CLUB,
bonded by tbo President, Cut. Scribner, Oon.
Boom, and MnJ, Dull, murohed frotutholr bead*
quarters to tbo Palmer House, headed byNov
ans' {laud. After tbo hand had performed several
selections tbo club marched to tbo club-room
of the lintel, where tbo Burgesses were drawn
up In lino at present arms. Tbo usual military
courtesies wore extended, and Col, Huribnnr in
a brief speech presented tbo command with a
set of resolutions handsomely engrossed on
parchment.
|MIIVI)IU^IU.
Capt. Smith said ho would ask an old veteran
Captain of tbo corps to respond to tbo splendid
.speech from Col. Herllmer, and ho Introduced
Col. ICmgsloy. Hu said ho would return tbo
heartfelt thanks of tho corps to tho members
of tho Union Veteran Club fur the handsome
testimonial of their regard. Thu speaker had
seen lit to refer to what they had done lit Chi
cago at tbo time of tho groat lire, but they asked
no credit for that, as It was alltuoy could do
under tho circumstances. Tbo corps hud also
been praised for tho bravery of Its members
durlnir tbo Warof tho Uelmllfoti, and be hoped
It would not be called egotism If be look oc
casion to refer to tho record of tho organization
during tho hour of our Nation’s distress with
pardonable pride. Years ago members of tho
llm-gess Corps had been In every battlo from
Vera Urn/, to Mexico, but the organization had
always been referred tons u company of “holi
day panniers.” However, this raiiculo bad been
turned to praise when the Burgesses hud en
tered tho service during the Civil War ns well
drilled and equipped us any company in tbo
army, sending to tho front eighty-six men.
Tho command returned from that bluntly
strife, many members of It having won
honors In tho Hold. Tho organization had fur
nished soldiers from tho private to tho com
mander of uu army corps, and ho would venture
to say that thoru was nut a Imttlelluld unstained
by thu blood of a member of tho llurgess Corps.
They were not a •• holiday purmlo” company,
but they took Into (heir ranks (ho best young
men of Albany and trained them ho that If tbolr
country ever needed them again they would ho
in tbo van. In conclusion ho again tendered tho
thanks of thu command to tho Veteran Club for
thu hauosomu testimonial, saying that It would
bo hung In tbo armory and would always re
mind thorn «t Chicago and the Union Veteran
Club. [Applause.]
