New Jersey, Iudiana. Texas and West
Virginia, are still reveling in the luxury ot
a ilvaillock on tin? Senatorial
question. Thes«* Ihiujf* are a little rai
ding; but we must have them.
Thk Republican Ccruûcilmeu whetted
their swords to a r.uor edge yesterday, and
with one fell swoop decapitated the official
head of Clerk iialligan quicker than you
could say Jack Robinson. When asked
why thw cruelty? they answered, per
nicious activity.
Mr. PoWDERI.V has beeu flooded bv s°
many letters asking questions, vScc., that
he has scarcely auy time to attend to his
duties iu overlooking the Held of labor.
Hence he will refuse to answer the numer
ous letters. The Knights are a good deal
like other people, believe iu riding a good
horse to death if he is willing to go.
The jjreat strike among the 'Lougsbore
men of New York has already cost
«*>, and it seem* scarcely begun. It not
only exists among the coal handlers, but
it seems probable that its extent will be
far reaching, taking in many branches ot
trade- About ">O,tl0U men will, it is esti
mated, be out on strike aud general boy
cotts will l»e declared to enforce their
demands.
Such a strike is not only a great waste
of time and wages, but is a great incon
venience to the public, and if continued
must resnlt in much l«*« and sallering.
COXKOKMIVO LAW AND FACT.
A bill now before the Indiana Legisla
ture merits passing notice. It provides
that in case of willful homicide, in which
the slayer is the husband, father, or broth
er of a seduced girl or woman, ami the
slain has been proven her seducer, action
for murder or manslaughter shall not lie.
It reduces the offense of slaying to a mis
demeauor, puuishable by line, without im
prisonment.
An American jury scarcely ever convicts
a man of murder, who has killed the se
ducer of his wife, daughter or sister. Tin
law proposed above would Ik- iu most cases
executed, and the punishment meted out
would be as great as at present. It is let
ter to have a mild law and have it obeyed,
than a rigid law that is continually diso
beyed. The time when Fnj*laud s laws
were almost as severe as Draco's, punish
ing i>elty offenses with death, then was
there the most crime. The puuishuients
were regarded by the in:»ss«-s as so sever,,
and unjust, that jurie» could not l»e found
to convict the accused.
It would Ik* wisdom to mollify the pen
alty attached to the slayer of a seducer,
and make the puuishmeut greater for se
duction. There would lie jilstice iu this,
and men would have les.-* inclination to
take the law into their own hands.

Hut the Pennsylvania method looks
practical. Should it be adopted there will
no longer lie any excuse for tramps beg»
ging from door to door. Tbev need bot
need but call at the "Wayfarer's Lodge'
and work for an hour and a half till they
get a good appetite, and then go in and
get asquare meal. If this is distasteful to
them, they can walk around Pennsylvania,
in passing over the conutry. Trampery,
as a profession, would lose its charms, and
the occupation of many a tramp would be
gone. This is bnt carrying out the
Scriptnral injunction: If a man works
not, neither shall be eat.
WHY ARE NOT THE IIIILURKX IN
sctiooLt «
According to the official report of State
Saperiotendent B. S. MoRti.vs, the num
ber of pupils enumerated in West Virginia
for 1 •*■«», is 342,753. Of these but 72 per
cent, or 173,257, were eurolled and the
average daily attendance of this
nnmlier was 11 per ceut, or 1(13,
212. That is 70,495 youths betweeu
the ages of six and twenty-one, in our lit
mountain State never saw the inside of a
school house as pupils in the year
and with the nnmher of absences among
those enrolled more tljan one-half, or l:®,
510, were absent every day.
Every one will recognize at a glance that
the youths of the State are not receiving
the benefit they should from the free school
system. Its benefits are great bnt it needs
helping along by appropriate legislation.
One of the retaras the people who pay
taxes ask, is that the mouey expended give
all the youths of the Stat« such instruction
M will them to become good c,t«eus.
Butifthemon#lhmt should benefit all,
benefits but one half, there is something ;
WTOtv: somewhere. I
It will be found that while a great mauy
of the children can not attend, there » »o
good reason why the majority should not.
In both towa and country there are thou- j
gauds of children within reach ot schools,
yet they grow up in i lioness and tguo- j
ance, merelv because then parents do n.t ,
annreciate the benefit» of education or are .
2TEÜ to insist that their children
shall attend. Many othere there are * h
are robbed of the instruction proffered
them by the State, because they are em
ployed* in mills, factories, mines, ,U
While necessity may demand that some ot
this be done, it is by no means true of he
m yority, and it is a UmI thing for the
child, for the State and for the working
men. The child is deprived of instruction,
the State, ot an educated citizen; and the
wages of workingmen are affected by the
competition of child labor.
The. passage of bills formulated after
two now before the Legislature, one pre
vent».« the employment of children under
twelve rears of age in tactorie«, &c., and the
other requiring children between the ages
of eight and fourteen to attend school un
ie*» legally excused, would prove ot great
t»enetit in enhancing the school work of
the State.

MABTIVS FERIIY.
The most iintcreeting event which has
occurred in our city in a year past was the
citizens' meeting held in the City Hall on
Friday night, which was attended by more
taxpayers and respectable citizens than any
meeting of such a nature ever held in the
city. All along, public meetings of every
kind have been a disgusting drag no mat
ter what the qnestiou at issue, bnt the
presence of Albert Netter, of Cinciuuati,
and an opportunity to refute and place at
naught the vile insinuations against onr.
municipal integrity called forth what
might be termed a rousing meeting, con
sidering the very disagreeable weather and
short time it was advertised. Considerable
has been said in the papers and among the
people concerning certain letters, whose
nature was very derogatory to our city's
credit, which were written by Messrs.
Boyd and Cotts of this city to Mr. Netter
who purchased the whole block for $100,
000 water works bonds issued by our city
some time ago. The whole affair was
pretty well aired on Tuesday nightr and
those who were present, know beyond a
doubt just what has been doue, and have
a very good idea who did it.
The meeting was called to order by J. C.
Gray, and L. Spence choseu Chairmau
and J. W. l'hoebus Secretary. Mr. Netter
was iuvited to come to the Chairman's
desk and was requested to say what be
knew about the transaction. He began by
statiug what trouble and anxiety had
been caused him at a previous time by an
attempt on the part ot the city to repudi
ate their lionds and expressed anxiety
concerning the Martiu's Ferry bonds if
the letters he had received were an expres
sion of the feeling of the people of the city.
He then proceeded to read the letters he
hatl received from Martiu's Ferry «luring
the past few months, copies of which are
here inserted. The tirst letter is from S.
W. Boyd, and reads as follows:
Martin's Fekry, Oct. &», 188t».
Mr. Albert Netter:
I>ear Sir:—I am one of a committee to
audit the books of the city of Martin's
Ferry. I see by the minutes of the Coun
cil that you proposed to buy the $100,(NHi
of water works bonds issued and sold by
Martiu's Ferry. I see your proposition
was rejected. The time of your proposi
tion don't appear on the minutes of Coun
cil. Will you please state what you offered
at that time for the water works bondsand
what you bought them lor afterward.
This should all appear oil our books, but
for some reason it don't. We want simply
to get at the truth of the matter, and recti
fy any mistakes that have been made.
You wiU greatly oblige me by giving that
information, Yours, very truly,
S. W. Boyd.
F. S.—The rejection of your proposition
was Oct. 11, 1 ($•<».
This letter Mr. Netter did not answer,
and shortly thereafter received the follow
ing letter:
Martin's I'erry, u., .m>v. i-vo.
. J On it Xrttrr, Em/.:
Dear Sir:—Some time ago I wrote to
you inquiring concerning the .Martin's
Ferry water works bonds. Keane \ Co:,
of Chicago, referred me to you for informa -
tion iu the matter. They tell me they
got the bonds from you. Members of the
old Council told me that you offered !••">
lor th»- bonds. For some reason that is
perhaps best kuown to the parties who
negotiated the sale of the Iwnds all infor
mation on the subject has lieen carefully
suppressed. Great dissatisfaction exists
and there is a movement on foot to repu
diate the whole transaction as contrary to
law. 1 was appoiuted by the Council to
investigate the matter. Joseph T. I laues,
who negotiated the bonds, had no
authority to do so. It is ab
solutely necessary that the present
city Council should know the terms on
which the bonds were sold and what was
realized from them. Will you kindly give
mesuch information as you can on thism It
ter? Tlea.se tell me what your offer to the
Council first was and at what price and
from whom yon got the »foresaid bonds,
and oil what terms as to payment. Will
you further kindly inform me what is the
sum total of the liomls you bought, and il
in your power please send me a copy of the
contract? Yours very truly,
S. W. I'oYD.
Dear Sir—I «vilify that hy a resoln
lion ot Councilof Martin's Ferry, O , S
\V. l'»oyd, Es«|., wasappointed an auditing
committee to audit all books ami papers
oft he city and was vested with full power
to scud for persons and papers.
Very truly,
Isa <tr Ciitts,
1'resident Council.
Mr. Netter answered this letter and
asked Mr. Boyd to come to Cincinnati and
receive an explanation of all the matters
pertaining to the bond. In answer to this
lie received the following:
Martin's Ferry, <>., )
December II, 1 *si>. )
Allurl Xiiler,
Dear Sir: Owing to my business here
I cannot meet you next week in Cincin
nati. Would you kindly inform me what
priceyou paid for the Martin's Feirv water
works bonds. The sale ofthe bonds appears
to have heen nt uje by .1. T. Ifanes, who was
a member of the (!ity Council in April,
when the bonds were sold. In May
a new Council came in and
Kane*, ceased to have anything to do
with the city government. Therqjs a dif
ference in the statements of the old coun
cilnien, as to what the council authorized
in the matter ol the sale of the ImiihIs. Mr.
Hanes has carefully avoided giving any
«^finite information on the subject. It i-«
among the possibilities that the piviuenl
of the bonds will be successfully repudi
atcd. Did you satisfy yourself of the legal
status of the bonds l>Hbre you (»ought
them? Very truly yours,
S. W. lioYH.
This e|)ds the Jetter ïyritiug ou Mr.
Boyd's part, and it is here taken up by
Mr. Cott.s himself. The following letter is
marked private, but ait Mr. Netter says
private letters should not lie written
about public business, and accordingly In
read it before the meeting, and expressed
regret that the author was not present to
hear it.

.{. -Ytlltr, fou., ('inrinnitli, Ohio:
DKarS|i;: i am in receipt of yours of
the 17th asking lor information- m tégard
tu water uoik* bonds, of which it appears
you arc the purchaser. The books and
papers of the corporation do not show that
there was any sale of bonds or any contract
entered into for their purchase. Neither
ilo they show that any po.\er of the Coun
cil was delegated, constituting any person
au authorized agent on the part of the
Council to negotiate such a loan. There
is uo evidence or record or papers of any
kind on Ule 6^pt&natury oi the issuing or
sale of said bonds. At the last spring
election an eutirely new set of city officers
were elected. The reckless manner in
which the newly elected officers found the
affairs of the city compelled a
Mill invpsiiyallQu of ever* (Apart
ment, which ha$ been made with a
very had showing. Tliù» necessarily
causes an examination of the bonds in
question for the purpose of ascertaining
the full exteut of said loan. An injunction
has been applied for, stopping every de
partment of this city till it can be run as
the law directs. This, of course, will
liriug up the question of the sale of said
houds, whether (hoy were sohl in accord
ance with law. There is no disposition on
the part ot any oue to repudiate any part
at" said bonds if they are as the law re
ijuires. There is a disposition to cover
into the city treasuary every cent of said
bonds, and it is for this pnrpose that the
courts have been resorted to. I think if
rou could meet with oor present Council,
»fco«- your contract, if yon have one, ami
if all is an law requite*, Connul wui plat« :
itself right towards the bonds. ' We
irant the water works, and we
want yonr money, and we want
to deal honestly with yon, and
rom the tone of your letter to Mr. Boyd I
jelicve you want to do the aame. f'hefe
will be no trouble when tse understand
»eh other. Very truly,
Isa4C Currs.
P. ä. Another matter 1 might call your
ittention to is the tax levy for sinking :
üud and interest on your bonds has been
«sailed bv the very heaviest taxpayers.
Indge Kelly has granted an injunction to
everal restraining the Treasurer from ool
lecting such tax. The matter has not been
passed on as vet but will be in a few days,
so there is others besides the Council who
are looking at us. The way I look at it
now is should Judge Kelly annul the tax
levy it will necessarily annul the bonds. I
think the whole matter should bestraighf
eued up to a full understanding, and sh.mld
you coraü in person I feel satisfied that i
Council will do what is right to protect j
your interest in every respect
Very truly, Isaac Cons.
After Mr. Netter read the letter, he said:
"Suppose the^e bonds are illegal, do the
people of Martin's Ferry feel disposed to
cause me trouble and repudiate the debt?"
In answer to this a chorous of no, no, no,
rose up from all parts of the house, which
w.is followed by deafening applause and
stamping of feet.
Mr. L. Spence, the Chairman, said: ' I
have always paid my debts, and I consider
an obligation of this kind made by a corpo
ration by a majority of the people as bind
ing its any private debt."
Mr. James Kerr said that although he
had taken au active part ag-iinst the origi
nal proposition to buiid water works, he
considered it everj' man's duty to help it
to a successful finish. He also said he de
tested all such dishonest schemes to get rid
of debts.
W. R. Ratcliff said he had talked with
taxpayers and failed to lind one who favored
repudiation.
Joseph Medill said he did not favor it
himself and had found no taxpayer who
did.
(Jeo. H. Smith and J. C. Gray said they
were situated in the matter about the same
as Mr. James Kerr.
J. T. Haues explained the sale of the
itonds very satisfactorily and cleared his
skirts, on Mr. Net ter's evidence, of all the
charges of duplicity made in til« letters
sent to Mr. Netter.
Judge John S. Cochran made the most
interesting speech of the evening and made
some personal allusions which were very
interesting, judging from the applause
they leceived.
John L. Welsh, one of the water works
trustees, made a few remarks stating the
coudition of the work and explaining the
annoyance caused by people who condemn
ed the work without cause, and without
taking the trouble to satisfy themselves
from the proper sources, of the truthfulness
of their statements.
Mr. Netter wishing to leave on the ten
o'clock train on the H. & ( ». asked that the
meeting adjourn as he was satisfied of the
city's honesty of purpose and was willing
and would as soon as he got home order
the balance of the money paid to the city's
Treasurer.

which has already been tried twice in this
i-ouuty, and regarding which there is con
siderable discussion and a diversity of
opinion, a motion was made this week be
fore Judge Fleming to change the venue.
The result is awaited with considerable
inxiety, as the controversy involves f 1 "»<!,

these words:
