Executive veto may woll reconsider their position now that free oolnugo so clearly hangs upon votoa both In tho Senate and in the Rouse Any silver purchase com plicates tho silver problem without solving it Any free coinage bill should ho made as porlucii uspossibles so that tho President tho more easily may abstain from a veto which it would bo absurd to anticipate and in orclur more surely

Kepresentative Dalzell today reported to the Houso from tho Committee on Pacific Railroads tho bill agreed to by the commit tee authorizing the Secretary of the Treas ury to negotiatewith the Sioux City a settlement of its indebtedness to States A WELL PLACED VETO President Harrison today returned to the House without his approval the bill to authorize the Board of Supervisors of Hari ri acopa county Arizona to issue county bonds at tho rate of S4000 per mile in aid of the construction of a certain railroad Ho says The bill seems to have House under a misapprehension of its true scope and effect In the report of the Committee on Territories it is saidlthiit by the terms of the bill the couuty receives bonds iu payment of the money proposed tobendvauced In fact the bill does not pro vide for a loan to be secured by bonds butfor a subscription of stock How far this mistake liave uflected the passage of the bill of course cannot be known The bill does not sub mit tlie question of granting aid to a vote of the people of the county or confer direct authority iipon tho Supervisors to issue bonds It is riaid however that iu April 1880 an election was held to obtain the views of the people ou the question It does not appear from any paper submitted who word the managers of the socalled election notice if any was given what qualifica tions on die part of the voters were insisted upon if any or in what form the question was repre sented There was no law providing for this election It was wholly involuntary Tlie ejection of course under the management of those who favored the subsidy aud was conducted withoutany legal restraintsas to voting or certi fication I have asked for a statement of the vote by precincts and have been given what purports to be tlie vote at Twelve Points The total affirm ative vote given was 1795 and the negative 134 but of the vote 1543 were at Phoenix and 188 ai a town very near Phoenix If there were no other objections to the bill I should daem this alone sufficknt that uo proposition is made for submitting vote of the people ataa election after due notice and uuder the sanction of law the question whether this subscription sliall be made But again the bill proposes to suspend for this case theprovisiou of the Act of July30 I860 foxbidding municipal corporations subscribing to stockor loaning credit to other corporations Also forbidding acorporation from creating a debt in excess of 4 per cent of the taxable prop erty at the last assessment This law was in tended to give thepeople of the Territories that protection against oppressive municipal debts which was secured people of most of the States byConstitutional limitation The wis dom of this legislation contended by the friends ofthe bill but they claim that circum stancesare so peculiar as to justify au exception do not think so Only a belief that the limit is inflexible will promote care and economy in ad 1 ministration Maricopa county is one of great extent and this great area is to be taxed to con struct a road which can in the nature of things be of advantage to but r fraction of it There is of advantage It may very well be that the section of these lands along the line of road especially town lots in Phoenix would have an added value riiuch greater than the increased burden imposed but it is equally clear that much property in the country will receive no appreci able benefits The existingbonded indebtedness of JTaricopa county is and the assessment about and estimated at about 12000 It will be seen that the bonded debt to say nothing of the which is said tobe small is largely in excess of tbelegaUimit and it is proposed toiricreasc it by a subscription that will certainly involve and probably If1 the bill becomes alaw the bonded indebtedness will very closely approximate 10 per cent of the assessed valuation of the property of the county condition of things in ihc county or Yvapai lying immediately north of Legislature passed
