SATURDAY, May i>, 1SS5:
Kutered at tin' Postoffice at Acconuic
tt. II.. Va.. as second-class matter.
A correspondent of the Eastern
Virginian, in its issue of last week,
who seems to have neither a local
h dotation or a name, presumes to
spo ik for all the citizens of the
county cm the Courthouse question.
Whether he is a citizen or not we
aro uninformed by the article to
i Inch reference is made, and can?
not, therefore, say that he had the
right to give expression to his
v ws even in his individual ca?
pacity. If a citizen, he cannot, be?
cause he has assumed the inisno
mer of-justice" claim to be the
representative of the views of the
ma jority of the people of the coun?
ty. Surely they would not endorse
the unjust attack which he has
made upon the editor ot this pa?
per^ the citizens of our town and
the very worthy gentlemen who
it m pose our Board of Supervisors.
So far as we are concerned, we
claim that we had the right to the
opinion, that we needed a new
CV-nithom-e and that it was to the
interest of the people id' the County,
Cat it be located where it now is.
We arrived at our conclusion in the
matter, not by reason of any spe?
cial ties which bind us to the town,
nor because of any property inte ??
est we have here which would be
injured by the removal of the Court
house, nor because any influence
bad been brought to bear upon us.
which has cnu.-cd us to advocate
the continuance of the Court house
at its present site. We have
thought and acted for ourselves in
the matter and contrary to what
we believe to be our own interest'.
Despite the fact, that the newspa?
per business could be moie advan?
tageously conducted if its office
was located on the line of a rail?
road, we have calculated the costs,
the convenience and the interests
of the public and have been wil
ling to sacrifice our interests for
the public good.
No, no, Mr. Injustice, "no change
has come over the spirit ol our
dream"asyoucharge. We believed
that our Courthouse "had outlived
the days cf its usefulness" that it
was too small and too badly ar?
ranged to furnish the aceonimo
dal ions which our people need?
that we bad the ability to build a
uew Courthouse and we said so,
and do still. The order for a new
Courthouse made by our Board of
Supervisors, which they had the
right to do by leason of legislative
enactment had our approval then,
and would have our unqualified ap?
proval now but lor recent decis?
ions in reg. i d to our debt question.
In view of the burdens to which
our taxpayers may be subjected by
those decisions, while we believe
our people would be able to meet
them as well as khe tax to be im.
posed for bni'ding a new Court?
house, v.e think probably it is bet?
ter to err on the safe side and we
concur in the. opinion of two of
our Supervisors as expiessed in
The Enterprise or" last weok,that
it is better to retrace our steps, un?
til the finances of Virginia are in
a better condition. Certainly we
nie not for a new Courthouse as
"Justice" now seems to be if other
interests of greater importance are
tobe saciificed. The cumnt ex
peiis.es of our government will have
to be met, our public schools by
all men ns should be supported, the
expemcs of lunatic asylums and
other institutions of a like charac?
ter must be provided for and if
they impose all the burdens upon
us we are able to bear, by all means,
let the building of our new Court?
house be postponed.
In regard to the attack so unjust
Iy made upon our Board of Super?
visors, we need not say in their de.
fence, that no one who knows
them and is willing to accord to
them what is due to them, would
suspect either of them of being a
party to a dishonorable act. No
more honorable or intelligent set
of men can be found in our county.
The writer happens to know each
of them intimately, that each of
them has an unexceptionable char?
acter and we indignantly deny
that they could be the tools in the
hands of any set of men,as intima?
ted. What then, have they done
to ircur the onslaught which "Jus?
tice" has made upon them? Sim?
ply their duty and nothing more.?
For months before they acted up?
on the Courthouse questiou, oui
needs for a new oue wei e thorough?
ly discussed by the citizens of the
county and with rare exceptions
was disapproved of by any of the
citizens of the county. Recogniz?
ing the necessity for a new Court?
house, having as we believe they
thought and as we do now the sup?
port of most of the citizens, they
acted in accordance with the pow?
er, and in the only way they could, '
vested in (liem by the statute law
of Virginia.
Another wail goes up from our
unknown writer, who would have
you believe that he is the embodi?
ment of all justier, so unjust that
no one is likely to be footed l>y him.
He complains that the Harry White
land should have been designated
as the place on the railroad by the
Hoard of Supervisors. Suppose the
point hail not been designated,
would not every owner of real estate
on the line of the railroad for sev?
eral miles along it had the right t<>
expert that his land would be se?
lected as the site for the new Com I
house? (1 aided by that hope and
the consequent enhanced value of
their laud if selected as the site,
would not many have voted for a
removal of the Courthouse, who
prefer lor it to remain where it is
unless it should be placed upon their
land.' W ithsucli a sei fish interest to
prompt them and in turn to influ?
ence their friends, could a fair ex?
pression of the wishes of many peo?
ple have been attained? The ob?
jection m ule by 'Justice' to the Har?
ry White landshowshis inconsisten?
cy in another matter about which,
he discourses so eloquently to wit,
that the Court house should be
centrally located. The Board of
Supervisors by act na) measurement
having ascertained the Harry White
land as the most central point ol
the count \ what has" J usticc" to say
to tiiis? That he does not believe
it, of course, the central point to
him and those who think like him
could not be other than that point
on the railroad nearest their own
house-door. But it is impossible
with our limited space to notice all
the inconsistencies, of "Justice" in
the article in question.
But will it not occur to our read?
ers as a little strange that so en?
thusiastic a mover of the Court
i house as Justice,docs not enumerate
the many advantages which will
j accrue to us by die removal of it?
Is it not strut gm still that he does
not even attempt to refute the rea?
sons given by us in a previous ar?
ticle why the Courthou e should
remain where it is? One little idea
only seemed to occur to him of the
advantages of a Court house site on
the railroad but so small that it had
almost escaiK-d our notice to wit:
that everybody would have Mich a
nice time going to Court by rail.
In reading it we could not but
help thinking thai the millennium
was near,snch was the joy and free?
dom from care depicted, which a
ride to court by rail would give our
citizens of all classes, doctors, labor.
ers,merchants, gentlemen of leisure,
every bod v,uni il it occurred to us I hat
we would have to pay for the privi?
lege, that the cars would not al?
ways be found waiting for us, that
the Judge would not always be ac?
commodating enough to adjourn
j court to suit our convenience, that
j a free lunch would not always be
provided lor us if we got left by
the ears, and then the vision ol
beauty and glory which "Justice"
had cieated, faded, ah! so sadly.
Toe same cost and inconvenience
which dissipated our vision occurs,
to everyone who has given it a mo
ments thought and he will tell you
if questioned about it, that he
would prefer to go to court on his
own team or even hire one for the
purpose. With the views we enter?
tain of the matter in question, ol
course we c;:nuot do otherwise
than advise the voters to cast their
votes lor the Ci uithouse-to remain
where it now is, and we do not be.
lieve with "Justice" aud the thought
is unworthy of him "that the Su?
pervisors Ti ill speedily euer a pal?
ace that will send a chill through
the taxpayers soul and empty pock?
ets." On the contrary, we believe
in view of the unsettled conditiou
of the finances of Virginia that no
Courth ouse will be built at all?in I
fact, two of the candidates for the
office of Supervisor have promised
to do all in their power to have the
order for a new Courthouse rescind
The only danger of the palatial
structure being erected for a Court?
house, that we can see, is to vote
for it to be built on the railroad
and by the election of men as Su?
pervisors, who entertain such vis?
ionary schemes as "Justice" does
that a Courthouse on the railroad
is the ??fountain 1'ioin which all
biasings now."
T. J. Cluverius. the alleged mur?
derer of Fannie Lillian Madison
was arraigned for trial in tLe Hus?
tings Court of the city of Bich
mond last Tuesday and pleaded j
"not guilty." The venire of 2-1 sum?
moned was exhausted aud only
one juror obtained. Another venire
of 200 was immediately ordered.
Such has been the publicity given
to and the interest manifested in
case that't is not improbable that
several hrndred men more will
have to be summoned before a
competent jury can beempaunelled.
The counsel for both sides express?
ed a desire that there should be no
unnecessary delay in the case.?
What the result of the trial will
be no one of course can tell. The
representatives of the Common?
wealth claim to have a strong case
against Cluverius, but ho is cheer?
ful, and expresses himself as conti"
dcutol an ncquital. Circumstances
which eonuiet him with the mnr
der have created a public senti
incnt against him, although impor?
tant links iu the circumstantial ev
dence seem to be wanting. Will
limy bo supplied? If guilty it is to
hoped so and that justice may not

to one who had no mercy for Iii?

'?This surplus is snficicnt to pay

funded by the Riddlebergorbill, and
this statement does not take into
consideration the large increase in
taxable values which the assess?
ment now going on will show, and
which will be the basis of Ihe next
year's revenues. I have it from
one ol the assessors of the city of

! proceeded far enough to disclose
j that the value of real estate ill this

I this assessment than it was under
that made five years back. I have
if from good authority that the real
estate in Danville will show an iu
crease of 6l!,0M0,0(J0. From every
quarter of the State I hearot an ill
crease on a similar scale."
The decision id' the Supreme
Court on Monday in the Moore vs.
Greenhow coupon case will doubt?
less allay much of the excitement
caused in Virginia by the apparent?
ly very sweeping decision in the
batch of cases decided by the same
court two weeks before. In those
cases the counsel for the State ad?
mitted the genuineness of the cou?
pons in question, and the constitu?
tionality of the Biddleherger legis?
lation ol Jan miry 14, 18S2, requir?
ing every coupon offered in pay?
ment of taxes to be verified in court
before being accepted as genuine,
was not diseus.-ed. Its constitution?
ality had. in fact, been admitted in
the decision in the ease of Anloni
vs. Greenhow. In the case decided
last Monday the plaintiffsought by
mandate to compel the defendant
to issue a certificate of deposit for
coupons tendered in payment of !i
cerise lux without "veiideation."
The Supreme Court decided that
the coupon must undergo the scru
itiiiy provided by the ltfddleberger
"killer," thus compelling every tux
payer who offers coupons to under?
go the Vexation and expense of a
lawsuit in order to get his coupons
received. In a word, the sting of
the "killer" is left in unimpaired
vigor.?Baltimore Sun.
The Supreme Court of the Uni?
ted States yesterday refused a hear?
ing in the Virginia coupon tax cases
iecently decided, und at the same,
time rendered a decision sustaining
the refusal of the Supreme Court
of this State to issue a mandamus
to compel the Treasurer of the city
of Richmond to receive coupons in
payment of licenses. Thus two
matters are finally settled, if we un?
der.stand these decisions: one, that
it a party who owes taxes tenders
coupons iu payment of same, and
tlie^ are refused, the (flicer who
distrains for such taxes can be pro?
ceeded against as a trespasser: the
second, that u licenses must be paid
in money.?Norfolk Ledger May
