WITHIN OUR GRASP!—THE COLUMBUS & MAYSVILLE RY. ITS COMPLETION A FIXED FACT, AS A FIRST-CLASS STANDARD GAUGE ROAD, IF PEOPLE ALONG THE LINE CONTRIBUTE $5,000 A MILE. PROPOSITION OF COLUMBUS CAPITALISTS TO BUILD IT. LARGE AND ENTHUSIASTIC MEETING LAST THURSDAY. REPRESENTATIVE MEN PRESENT. FULL REPORT OF PROCEEDINGS, TERMS OF CONTRACT, &c. MEETINGS THIS WEEK ALL ALONG THE LINE. Since our connection with this paper, dur ing the past three years, we have written many railroad articles, and several times assured our readers that the Columbus A Maysville Railway was a "fixed fact," but at last we are able to say "we have got it," or at least that we eon have it, without doubt, if our citizens and the people along the line want it. They now have a bona &dt proposition before them, from responsi ble parties, by which the road can be built and put hi operation as a first-clans stand ard gauge, within eighteen months from this date, and if this opportunity is not accepted on our part, HilUboro had better retire from the railroad business altogeth er, and forever after hold her peace. It has been plainly demonstrated that our town can njt grow much more without another railroad, and if our citizens don't act now they will probably sever hare another such a chance. The town will cease to thrive and grow, property will decline in value, and our active, energetic business men will move out and invest their cap- talin some to town. All that now re mains to be done is for every community along the line to go to work in earnest, as soon as the apportionment is made, and raise the money. In the mean time let our citizens devote themselves to talking the thing np and encouraging each' other, and we will lay the foundation, byg iving our readers a full report of the meeting held here last Thursday afternoon, which was one of the most important ever held in Hillsboro. The meeting convened at 2 o'clock Thursday afternoon, at the Court House, which was filled with our business men, and a large number of strangers from dif ferent towns along the line of the proposed road, whose names, as far as we were able to ascertain, are as follows : Ripley A. T. Devore, J. K. McGregor, J. & Kiukead. Mr. Gregg. J. H. Moore, N. C. Ridgeway, Dr. Ed. Bell, W. W. Gil- liland, of the Times-Bee, W. B. Campbell, Robt. Campbell, M. Linn, C. Leggett, J. S.

All the points along the line were repre sented except Columbus, but letters were read from Messrs. Parsons, Sessions, Fran cisco, Furay, and other gentlemen from that city, who were unable to attend on ac count of the Soldiers' Reunion. The meeting was called to order by President C. S. Bell, of the C. & M. Ry. who nominated Col. Maynar, of Washiug Haucock ton c. H for Chairman. Col. Maynard stated the object of the meeting in a few w0rds, and called for Secretaries. H. L.

We therefore turned our attention to the possibilities of standard gauge road. We did not, at that time, receive any direct proposition build our road, but were informed by cap italists that in their opinion, witb a tavor- able line and a verification of our state ment of the probable business of the road when completed, and a good substantial subscription, there would be no difficulty n iirocurinff tne necessary capuai io com plete, equip and operate our road on the standard zauee.

Me&srs. Samuel Thomas and associates have made us a written proposition to build, equip and operate a first-class stand ard gauge railroad from Columbus to Maysville, by bridging, grading, tieing, and by laying down 50-pound rail, and by constructing the necessary depots, engine houses, water stations, turn-tables, sidings, platforms, etc- and by equipping with roll ing stock and machinery necessary to do the business of the road, and whatever else is necessary to construct and operate a road of such character as may be necessa ry to do the business along the line of said railroad. The conditions on which this proposi tion is based are as follows : 1st. The C. & M. Railway Company shall procure the right of way from Co lumbus to a point on the Ohio river, oppo site Maysville, Ky. 2d. Tbe C. M. Kailway Company shall procure a good bona fide subscription on the whole line aggregating $500,060. od. lhe local subscriptions shall be due and payable to the C. & M. Railway Com pany or 1U assigns, as the completed road reaches the points at -which the subscrip tions are made. 4th. This local subscription and rights of way to be procured as speedily as pos sible, not later than six months from dale, and work to begin by the construction company within 60 days from notice that the conditions have been complied with. 5th. In compensation for building the road as above, the C. & M. Railway Com pany is to pay over to the construction company, aloresaid, the local auoscjip tion and an amount of bonds equal to two-third of the capital stock of tbe com pany, as the work progresses, and on con ditions hereafter to be agreed upon. In regard to the responsibility and good faith of the paitiea making the proposi tion, we can only repeat what has been said in a previous paragraph : their responsi bility is undoubted, and their good faith shown by signing a contract to do what we bay reported above. The gentlemen making this proposition are known as successful business men, identified with the building of railroads, aud in the judgment of your Committee, are of such character that we may safely en trust our enterprise with them. We commend this proposition to your favorable consideration : First, Because it will secure us a first- class road. Second. Because the terms are liberal and can be complied with. Third, Because the parlies to it are Ohio men, identified with us, and it will be managed, when completed, by men in terested in our section of the State. Fourth, Because we deem this the most favorable preposition that can be obtained, and that the umea are now more favorable for its performance and our compliance than they are likely to be for many years to come. Asking your favorable consideration and hearty co-operation in carrying out its provisions, we are lour Ub't Serv C. S. BELL, Ch'n Com. of Ex tension CAM. Ry. Major Baird, of Ripley, moved that the report be adopted, in order to get it before the meeting for discussion. Pend ing the motion, he suggested that the dele gations present from along the line of the road be called on for an expression of view a. It was decided to begin with Columbus, but as she was not represented, Secretary Hibben read a number of letters from her business men, which were in substance as follows : Mr. R. C. Parsons expressed his desire for the success of the enterprise, and said that Gen. Thomas and the other gentle men connected with the contract were re sponsible parties. W. S. Furay, editor Sunday Herald, said he was favorable to the enterprise and thought the road would undoubtedly l e a paying one. Would do all he could in furtherance of the enterprise. Mr. F. C. Sessions, banker, regretted that he could not be present, aud express ed his beat wishes for the enterprise. A. W. Francisco, editor of the Ohio State Journal, could not be present on ac count of the Soldiers' Reunion, but would do all he could to advance the enterprise. Dr. McClintick, of Mt. Sterling, wrote that he would do everything in his power to advance the enterprise, and he wag at the service c' the committee. After the reading of the letters, MR. KENNY, OF MT. STERLING, Was called on. He said he was young in the railroad business and could not talk much, but came down to help represent his town. He recommended Mr. Douglass as talker, and that gentleman was called on. MR. DOUGLASS Said he had talked narrow-gauge a gieat deal, but had not done so lately, as he was now in favor of the atandard-gauge. He said Mt. Sterling must have a road, as she was just sixteen miles from nowhere. Mt. Sterling would be willing to pay a liberal itibacription when the car were running and if the breeze was got up high enough the road would sail as high as a kite. He said his people had given $20,000 for narrow-gauge, and were disappointed at not getting it, but she would do her share for the standard-gauge. Applause. MR. C. MARTIN, OF BLOOMINGBURG, Spoke next, and began by saying that his people were four miles from nowhere, or from any railroad, but in as fine a country as God ever made. The people wanted road, and the common men would pay for t, but some of the rich men would not. He thought the Lord ought to take such men,but,didn't know what hewould do with them. Cheers and laughter, He hoped the enterprise would succeed, and declared Bloomiugburg would do her share. Ap plause. He said John Smith, of his town, was present, and he wanted to hear him, and Mr. M. caused considerable mer riment by calling "John" by name several times, but he was not in the bouse, and Mr M. concluded that he bad gone out for glass of beer. MR. J. H. ELY, OF WASHINGTON C. H., it to ine he . to - the ior far , in- me of in ... in of a has its you from , i Vt as next called. He was placed in a po sition he did not expect; he had brought the Chairman over to make a railroad speech, but as he was tied up, he supposed he would have to go it. Ever since he re ceived the letter from the Secretary he had been trying to get the representative men of Washington C. H. to come to this meet mg, which he thought was the most im portant in the history of the enterprise, He had been interested in the "blue grass1 road for years, and so had his town. spoke of the number of substantial men present men of silver locks, who had help ed to open up tbe forests befoie railroad were known, and who know the importance of them. If we expect to complete the en terprise, each locality must perform duty, by bringing forth a contribution. No town should expect any other to build a Hue to her, but every locality must con tribute. All the gentlemen present should be careful to make no representations which could not be carried out. He believed narrow-gauge road could be built, an would pay from Columbus to Maysville, but thought a standard gauge would much bet'er. He had his doubts, how ever, as to whether the money could raised. He had entire confidence in gentlemen who had made the proposition, j aud thought they would carry it out to letter, iie was personalty acquainieu with two of them, and knew they were responsible. He thought the right-of-way would cost $100,000, and that would swell the entire amount of local aid required to $600,000. This meeting was called see if each county could furnish her quota, but he feared Washington could not $5,000 per mile, although she was as will ing to contribute as any other part of line, notwithstanding that she was so President Bell here interrupted the president Bell nere lnierrupteu tne t, d aid tlial it wl8 uot el,,eCted that each locality should furnish $5,000 per mile. Some places were weaker than others, and the strong would have to help the weak out. He said the quota of the different counties could not be fixed in public meeting, and it would have to be done at a private conference. Mr. Ely resumed, and said when the en terprise was an assured success, Fayette would not be found wanting. ' He spoke of his county being a wilderness 25 years ago, and said what she was to-day the railroads had made her, but still she want ed another link, and that was the C. & M. Investments in all public enterprises paid. His experience had been that they paid ten-fold. If Columbus would do what she ought to, the road could be built. . Colum bus wanted the road, but warlike Mt. Sterling she had no money. ' Heth0iight Fayette, county could raise . $3.00 per mile, through her territory, whichV wuiuld be equal to $5,000 or $6,000 in other coun ties. Applause. He thought a commit tee should be appointed to ascertain if the amount could be raised. He believed with the exception of one or two coal roads, this road would be the best-paying in the Stale, but to build it every individual on the line, rich and poor, must come up and put their shoulders to the wheeL Ar rangements had been made in Washington for $20,000 worth of bonds, and as much more could be raised by subscription, and Al 1 -1 L ll A . 1.1 me rigui oi way mrouga me tow,. wu,u - . - . , i r a i i tr. -i 1 noi cosi auouar. lAupiause.i nctiinru by paying a high compliment to President Bell, for his energy, Ac, and said Fayette would heartily second his eflorts. PRESIDENT BELL Waacalled on, but said he wanted to near the strangers talk. He had been hard at work for six months in getting the propo- sition, and now he wanted to see if it was all talk about tbe road. - U me people wanted the road, now was tne time ior them to come np and say so. He said if Fayette would do what Mr. Ely promised, the road would be built. Applause. Hillsboro had already planted $120,000 in the ground, but many of her citizens who were opposed to narrow-gauges had not contributed, and he believed she could do more. He would give way to the strangers. - " ' jesse Thompson, Esq., OP Georgetown, Said he had made many railroad speeches, and done much work ; had been at work in the field with the engineers since last fall. Georgetown had traded a road tn Sardinia, but had had some trouble with 1I1 Kn tlio n;. rectors had had a conference recently, and agreed upon a line ; it would rnn three fourths of a mile east of Georgetown, but she would be willing to make the sacrifice, .lthough it was a great disappointment to have it miss the town. Georgetown could complete the grade and tie it, and furnish 110,000 besides. The work was worth $35,000, and could not be done for less, Could raise $10,000 more without a vote in the town, and in addition the farmers could raise $5,000, making $50,000 that Georgetown would contribute.' Ap plause. MAJ. BAIRD, OF RIPLEY, id : If we don't get the road now, we had Hter quit talking altogether. I have grown grey since we commenced talking riilroad in Ripley, and now is the time to do it or never, for we will never tret anoth- such offer. Ripley was decidedly in favor of the proposition, and would go to work at once and raise her quota. Ripley could raise $50,000, he was sure, but some thought $60,000.

He wanted the proposi tion agreed to and work commenced. If Ripley couldn't get the standard-gauge, she vould have a narrow-gauge to Hillsboro any how.

THE CAMPAIGN OPENED IN HIGHLAND LAST SATURDAY. LARGE MEETINGS AT LYNCHBURG AND HILLSBORO. ABLE SPEECHES BY GEN. GROSVENOR, OF ATHENS. THE ISSUES FAIRLY DISCUSSED. The Republicans opened the campaign in this county last Saturday afternoon, at Lynchburg, with one of the largest and most eutlnisiaHlic meetings ever held in thut port of tho Cuunty- Reluw we give a report from our regular Lynchburg correspondent. [Special to the News. LYNCHBURG, Aug. 16, 1880. The Republican meeting held here last Saturday was a success iu every particular, and will tell at the election this fall. The committee in charge of the selection of a grove for the meeting, found that thegrove in which the "yieut" Democratic: rally was held would be entirely too small to ac- commodae the patriotic hosts who would be in attendance. They consequently se lected the beautiful grove eat of town, containing about three acres. We can not not give an accurate estimate of the numberjpresent, but to say it was the larg est Republican meeting held in Lynch burg for the last fifteen years would be true. They might be estimated by the acre more correctly than by numbers. Gen. Grosvenor held the large audience almost spell-bound during the delivery of one of the most convincing, earnest and patriotic speeches it was ever our privilege to listen to. He reviewed the history of the Democratic party from tbe days of Buchanan up to the present day, complete ly demolishing their claims that the Gov ernment would be safe in their hands, and showing beyond successful contradiction that the present prosperity of the country is due to the wisdom of the Republican party, and that it would be unsafe to trust the Government iu the hands of its ene mies. Come again, General, you will al wavs be welcome. PAGE. After the Lynchburg meeting Gen.Groe venor took the evening train for thia place and addressed a large meeting in the Court House, which was presided over by Hon. Alphonso Hart. Gen. Grosvenor took np the record of the Democratic party on the finances, and showed its bitter hostility to the Greenbacks when th3 Eepublioan ad ministration first insued them, to pay the soldiers in the field, and carry on the war for the defense of the Union. Then when the war was over, the Union saved, and the Republicans tried to redeem the prom ise of the Government and make Green backs as good as gold, how the same Dem ocratic party opposed every step towards Resumption, predicting ruin aud disaster to the country from the Resumption act, until in spite of all opposition and croak ing, on the 1st day of January, 1873, Re sumption was successfully accomplished, and has restored prosperity to the country to a degrea never before known. And now after all its false prophecies, this ever changing, never-constant Dmocratie par ty at last climbs up on the old Republican platform, buries its darling "rag baby"j and declares for "hard money!" So with the 14th and l.rth amendments thoy first declared them "revolutionary, null and void" irr their platform of 1808, and now in IS80 their candidate, Gen. Hancock, de clares them equally binding'as the original Constitution. Thus the Democrats had al ways opposed every great Republican pol icy until we mado it a success 'in spite of their opposition, and then they turn round and adopt it, and swear they were always in favor of it! This year they are declar ing in favor of a "full, free and fair bal- ot," in spite of tho notorious "tissue" bal lots iu S. Carolina, and the recent enor mous frauds in Alabama! The trouble is, we cannot trust their declarations. There is no sincerity in them . It is like their puttiDg up a gallant Union General Tor their candidate, when at tie same time the rebel Wade Hampton tells the people in Virginia that Hancock "represents the very same principles that Lee and Jackson fought for!" Gen. Grosvenor then paid his respects to Hancock's famous "Order No. 40," and proved that so far from tbe order being an act of submission of the military to the rightful civil power, as the Democracy 10 loudly claim for it, it was in fact a surren der of the rightful military authority of the U. States to the unreconstructed rebel State and municipal laws of Louisiana, established under the Confederate govern ment, which were all swept away when Lee surrendered at Appomattox court house- Order No. 40" simply gave new life to these dead rebel laws, and attempted to make them paramount to the authority of the U. States, and for this reason Hancock was removed and gallant Phil Sheridan put in his place. Gen. Grosvenor held the undivided at tention of his large audience till the close of his speech, which is unanimously pro nounced by all who heard it, one of the best ever delivered in our town. A unanimous vote of thanks was given to the General, and then, after appointing a committee to draft a Constitution for a Garfield Club, to report on Monday n'ght, the meeting adjourned, with thrje hearty cheers for Garfield.

CHANGE OF PROCEDURE IN THE COMMON PLEAS COURT, MADE NECESSARY BY AN ADDITIONAL JUDGE. HILLSBORO, Aug. 16, 1880. A meeting of the Highland County Bar was held Monday t tbe Court House, with Judge A. G. Matthews in the Chair, to consider the following changes in the practice, proposed by His Honor, Judge S. F. Steel; the increase in the number of Judges in the Judicial sub-district rendering it advisable to make some change in this county. The following was submitted : 1st, That, instead of as heretofore the first week of the term of the Common Pleas Court should be devoted to the meeting of the Grand Jury and the hear ing of preliminary motions on demurrer. That the criminal docket should take precedence of the civil, and should be called for the second week of the term, on the first day of which week the petit jury should be summoned to meet. 3d. That, on the termination of crim- nal business before the Court, the civil docket should be called and cases set for trial every successive two weeks, until the close of the term, or unnl the business be fore the Court should be duposed of. At aid call ot tbe docket only such cases as would be reanyjor t uil within the re spective periods, should be set, and the motion for delay or continuance in all other cases heard, and such cases set for trial as soon as might be after the business then before the Court should have been disposed of. 4th. To shorten the periods for which continuance of cases should be allowed, to set a shorter day within which to answer or plead, and to secure a speedy trial in il cases. On motion of U. Sloane, and alter a full iscussion, the proposed changes were dopted without dissent On motion, the Secretary was author ized to see to the publication of the above proceedings in the Hillsboro newspapers. On motion of H. M. Huggins, the Sec retary was authorized to publish a call for meeting of the members of the High land County Bar, to be held on the 1st day of the October (1SS0) term of the Common Pleas Court, for the formation of a County Bar Association. On motion, the meeting adjourned. A.Cf. MATTHEWS, Ch'n. A. HARMAN, Sec'y. Temperance—"Sumptuary Laws" and Democracy. My heart rejoices to see that the ¬ zens of Hillsboro are getting their eyes open on the liquor traffic. There is not an intelligent person in the land bnt knows, that if the negroes of the South were to kill half as many white people as liquor drinking does, nearly every Democrat would shoulder his gun and march against the murderers; and that would be what they ought to do. Precisely the Bame would be the case if tbe whites were to kill as many colored folks. The Republi cans would shoulder their guns. But hen it is whisky that does the killing, "hands off!" The whisky sellers control the rotes of their poor dupes, and there fore we must be mum, or our party will be defeated 1 I must confess I am sorry to see how low our Democrats have got. No sump tuary laws," L e. no Temperance laws ! Yes; repeal all temperance laws and let every body drink all they want, and let all that want to. tell Rum. This is, so far as I can see, the national creed of our Democrats. What a shame, to see men get down low 1 And the great wonder to me is, how some of our good Democrats can vote for men on Buck- a platform ! I think their Temperance principles can not be far above zero. FLORA. The Greenfield Fair. Commenced on Monday until Friday of this week.
