MINERAL POINT WIS. f
THURSDAY, JUNE 15, 1871.
W. H. DENNETT, EDITOR.
Tun following is an extrnnt from the
letter of Henry A Smith, county altor
tu*ys, addressed to Judge Mills, and pub
lished in the National Democrat of May
24th :
To he rid of this annoying and Injurious af
fair, our people have ever hern ready i<> make
a fair compromise. We have nvl Mr. (Joßli’.-s
proposition hy one that if the bondholders he
i . presents will first settle onr pr nt dllllenltv
at 50 eeiits on the dollar, in quii’k anil sp K
pivim tits, the town through wliu-U ho shall
r\[end the road shall moke up to them in tie
way of a bonus the other 5.1 ci'iitfe— thus gi't
tin-r his lioiidholdei-s all ttn ir n.<nn‘V, securin','
the aid he asks to exteiKl the road, together
with the invaluable good: will o( the pnipli-.
To this Mr. Cobh's only reply is that it is an
“outrageous propouilkni."
This paragraph is understood hy mos 1
people to mean that a proposition was
made to Mr. Cobb to give him $l5O 000
in minty or itn equivalent for s'oo,ooo
of county bonds, and $150,000 in new
town bonds, as aid to extend the railroad
through the county. If this is tire mean
ing of the proposition, and the mosors of
it can make it good, Mt. Cobh author
izes us to say that ho is willirvg, ready
and anxious to accept it* Hoi ibis is
not, ho claims, and is sustained' hy good
authority, tho meaning of the proposi
tion as submitted to hint, and which he
pronounced “outrageous. 1 hat propo
sition, or the meaning of it, was quite
different, being simply that ho take now
county bond* to the amonnt of $150,000
in exchange for $llOO,OOO of tho present
bomls, and $150,000 in town bonds in.aid
of tho extension. Of course now ooonty
bomk could not bo hypothecated for ton
per cent, of their face, and as Mr. Cobb's
object is to get $150,000 co.4> to expend
ii building the road through the county, j
he would not bo in tho luast aided in that j
direction by such botui*.
On behalf of Mr. Cobb, relative to this j
matter, wo are authorized to say farther, j
that if tho County Hoard or other-parties ;
wish to become contractors for the work
of building tho mad through tho county
to tho amount of $150,000, prepared
to place in tho hands of a responsible
trustee $00O;OO0 of the present county
and Mineral Point town bonds, to bo de
livered to said contractors whenever their
contract is completed, or in installments
as may bo arranged. Thus, a proposi
tion to settle so much of tho claims at 50
cents on die dollar is offered! 'J ho great
objection to it is that the whole amount
jf $4*50,000 would have to bn raised In
one year, which could not bo done by
taxation without great hardship to many,
■nd whether or not wo could raise money
by any other moans is a mootod'question
In addition to this $154),000 on settle- j
nent of old bonds, tho towns through |
which the mad would pass, and which
would he directly benofitted by it, would
bo expected'to subscribe $150,000 to the 1
stock of tho now mad, giving their bonds
therefor. This no doubt the towns would
do, as the county attorney* intimate in
the paragraph quoted above.
As wo understand it, nn opportunity
is hem offered to compromise half of tho
claims against tho cauntv at 50 cents on
the dollar, and we an*. as stated in these
columns 'as* week, i* favor of embrac
ing it, believing it to bo for tho best in
terest of tho people.
The Worst not Told,
The accounts by mail from Paris of
the scenes and incidents attending the
last trvrribls days of the recent civil war,
in that city, after the Government troops
had effected an entrance, present even
a more horrible picture of bloodshed,
C integration and terror than those re
torted Hr telegraph. Tho Communists
nnd Versaillists were equally frantic and
fercoiou* 'Hi* streets of the city were
transformed into a bloody, horning Pan
demonium. and men and women were for
the time possessed of a spirit of fiendish
desperation which was w reckless alike of
life and property. It wo a city of devils,
all apparently bent on destruction and
death. Some thirty of the finest public
edifices in the city worn either wholly or
partially destroyed, to say nothing of pri
vi to residences and other properly The
I ** of property amounts to many mil
lions of dollars. It seems impossible to
i scertuin the actual 10-s of lile during
tins riegn of terror and diabolism. Sonic
of Iho streets wem literally covered with
dead and bleeding bodies, ine scenes
attending those terrible and horrible days
far eclipsed those of tho devolution of
1 T.i.l—uiid this Would sem scarcely pos
sible.

Too Bad-Too Bad.
Many of the friends of Hon. C. C.
Washburn were hopeful that that gentle
man would receive the Republican nom
ination fur Governor, until the political
dictator, the great high cock a lorum
that runs the Richland (,’ounty JRepubli •
can, issued his edict saying that C. C.
must not bo governor. This is cruel, to
dash so ruthlessly to earth the hopes of
so ninny good people. Of course Wash
hum will withdraw from the field, anil
tho j ct of the UepiMican will be nomin'
Med, s umittl, Who is the coming imin,
lira W. Let u* know, so that we may
not endanger our existence by opposing
him.
