Cincinnati Commercial (Newspaper) - February 17, 1877, Cincinnati, OhioThe Cincinnati commercial saturday. February 17. 1877.the commercial. Published every morning. A. Halstead Ruhr Bretous. A co. A Fly Rotter Luil Dong fourth and race , february 17, 1877. Notice. Agents finding that their Supply commercials is not sufficient to meet the demand May Telegraph at our expense for an additional number. Persons unable to obtain the commercial at vetes agencies railway trains steam its and other places where usually sold will Confer a far by reporting the fact to us. Halstead so co. To come Down to two dollars a thousand feet provided their contract is extended they Are guilty a false pretence. They Are actually asking an Advance. They want More Gold for Gas through the a exec ten years than they have had for the last seven. That is the Blandishments that is played upon is in the name cheapening Gas. We think it is not the disposition the people Cincinnati to submit to this imposition. We Are sure that the members the City Council and the legislature who promote this scheme will earn the lasting contempt and hostility their constituents. Tho Gas company have said they could not afford to take one Dollar and seventy live cents. That is the very largest figure we should think about. Tho thing to do is to pass the Stryker Bill. Question circulation. From tho Cincinnati commercial february 11, 1877. The enquirer says the commercial Loes not permit it circulation to be compared with that the enquirer. Now the enquirer is doing a Sham business in circulation Ait is in advertising and its expression a desire for an exhibit the number papers circulated is an Effort to show off before the Public the proportions the fraud it has prepared. The enquirer and commercial Are sold to agents and carriers and Over the counter at the same Fig ures precisely. The True circulation a journal is tested and proved by the. Number copies sold. The additional number papers printed those spoiled wasted and Given away Are the measure mismanagement. In order to get at the comparative circulation journals a reasonable period must be covered. Ife propose to the enquirer a showing the Cash receipts for the two daily papers in the year 1876. Is the proposition agreeable if not Why not if the proprietors the enquirer decline to test circulation by the Cash receipts for a year they should take in the absurd sign under which they have been for some Timo sailing and find some Inore appropriate Standard comparison. A business men will recognise in the above a thoroughly fair proposition with no nonsense in it. It is declined by the enquirer. The circulation the daily commercial continues to Load in both extent and character that any other journal published in Cincinnati. Re Northwest hacking to warmer Southwest winds stationary jailing barometer and Clear weather Are the indications for to Day. In greenbacks were Worth at the close the Market yesterday 94 3-5 cents ver Dollar. A a letter from general Schofield giving the history tho famous order no. 11 general Thomas Ewing in Kansas is published elsewhere. The Loui Ainna vote for Hayes. The electoral commission first decided yesterday by the usual vote not to enter upon the mass evidence rotating to Louisiana affairs. The commission could not exert any Power not belonging to Congress and Congress could Only inquire which is the authentic certificate containing the electoral vote the state. Now the Kellogg government has been recognized by every department the general government. The straight line legality was followed and the vote Louisiana stands for ii arcs. Concerning tho ten thousand votes thrown out about which . Matt. Carpenter was so solicitous we do not see that the voters behind them Are any More deeply to be sympathized with than the Twenty thousand Bull dozed Republican voters in the state. It was . Tilde no a theory his Case that he had the Best show before the commission to Florida and that such Points might to made in Florida and Louisiana that the Odd vote in Oregon would be forced out. Or. Tilden Senius to have Boen right in his estimation that the Florida Caso was legally stronger for him than that Louisiana but it is reasonably Clear that the three Oregon votes will be Given for Hayes nud it is conjectured that the democrats May not care to make tho contest. The deciphered Oregon telegrams will certainly have a sedative influence. The precise weakness the Coirin ease appears in a Strong Light in Trio telegrams saying that a Republican elector must be bought. New York insurance companies. The official reports 101 joint Stock fire insurance companies the state new York for the year 187g. Exhibit the following figures Cash capita $25,957,020 Quot Gross assets $59, 501,955 total Cash receipts $23,-010,703 total Cash expenditures $22,518,843, which $9,884,224 was for fire losses and $3,903,643 was for dividends to Stock holders. Total liabilities $41,263,192 surplus Over liabilities $18,398,063 risks written during the year $2,840,727,553 amount at risk january 1, 1877, $2,859,894,391 percentage net assets to risks in Force january 1, 1877, 2.03 percentage fire losses paid to net Cash fire premiums received 49.1 average rate premiums fire risks seven Hundred and seven one a slight fraction Over seventy cuts each one Hundred dollars. It will be observed that Ibe dividends Are Only six and one Liaf per cent the Gross assets the companies a Revenue which should let a derived from the capital alone. It will also be observed that the expenditures $22,511&Quot,643, the amount paid for losses and dividends aggregate Only $13,-787,867, leaving$8,730,976 Tobe otherwise expended showing tho Cost transacting the business to be about thirty three per cent the receipts Aud almost lacking Only about ten per much As the amount paid for losses. This eur Imus Cost transacting the business grows out unhealthy Competition Large sums being paid for brokerages and the various Means resorted to for the purpose securing business. These official figures disclose two facts one that capital invested in insurance stocks is not sufficiently remunerative the other that the rates Premium Are sufficiently Large to be remunerative. If the expenses were reduced to a proper Standard by the abolition brokerages and other needless expenses better dividends Aud lower Vates Premium would be Sce Rod. Calculated in Gold two dollars currency Are Worth eight cuts More Tolian two dollars and a Quarter in currency wore when the Gas contract was passed in 1859. Thorofare when the Gas company propose nothing improper. Senator Kernan new York is a Good Man and he said the other Day with the deep emphasis his utter goodness that a there never was a suggestion that Money should be used for improper purposes in and yet we have senator Kelly a full endorsement Patrick a dispatch dated Portland Oregon november28, and directed to w. T. , a Gramercy Park new York a otherwise to Samuel a. Tilde saying a must Purchase Republican elector to recognize and act with the reply without signature sent next Day and probably tilde no a w As a if you make obligation contingent result in March it can be the Portland dispatch had suggested the Deposit $10,000 to Patrick a credit in a Wall Street House Wlinich was named. Tilden said the amount might be increased a slightly if ten thousand dollars seemed a very Small sum indeed to pay to a Republican elector to supplement Cronin a nose. The next Oregon Telegram to Pelton alias Tilden was that the governor Oregon would Issue a certificate without being rewarded. That is he did not demand Money. Poor old . Tilden should have a grateful recollection the modesty the governor the Only Man so far As appears the face the telegrams who did not care to be rewarded. The conservative operator at Gramercy Park no. 15while willing to increase the sum for a Republican elector to More than $10,000, wanted the obligation contingent upon the result in March but the firm reply was a one elector must he paid to recognize the Democrat to secure a majority. Have employed three lawyers editor the Only Republican As one. Lawyers fee three thousand. Will take five thousand for the Republican elector. Must raise Money. Can to make fee this was Plain business but the cunning old party at Gramercy Park no. 15 seemed to fear that tho Price Republican electors was quoted too Low in Oregon and that one could not be sold for $5,000 Aud delivered to help Cronin. He had More Faith in the legislature and he inquired whether by the use special messengers whose a necessary expenses could be paid a the legislature would not be convened. The reply was a impossible a and As to the Money a must have it by the reply was a go ahead. You shall be Ripi buried. Do not fail. All Here is Tilden again in Plain View. He strove even in his extremity to avoid the immediate payment Money though willing to make the payment contingent his inauguration As president. Then he wanted the legislature convened and at last he telegraphed a go ahead you shall be under All the circumstances the response was aggravating a have to borrow Money my individual responsibility Trust you can replace this dated december 3, was from senator Kelly and said that in three Days he would be in Salt Lake City. In three Days december 6, the reply is out and a the eight deposited a and the admonition is used a let no technicality prevent there is evidence throughout a grab game for Tilden a Money Aud that he doled it out with painful anxiety to do no More than was a a necessary to fix the favourable a result in it does not seem reasonable that the organs the party Whoso candidate for the presidency has been exposed in such a transaction As this a transaction that we Are warranted in saying does not seem inconsistent with his career that the organs to say should be blubbering very much about Economy Aud Reform corruption and fraud and other incidentals the late Campaign. Lamentations from that source touching the sad situation the country will not excite sympathy and May produce merriment. A there is no pain says a recent writer a like the pain a new and this is the affliction under which the extreme partisans the democracy labor. Their idea since the election in november has been that Tilden was elected and they claimed it with an Assurance that satisfied even . Thompson. The new idea that Hayes is elected and so declared by a tribunal constituted by tho votes their own representatives goes through them with an amount disturbance that is unknown in tho effects the most powerful compound cathartic Pill. Of we had decent pavements in Cincinnati a if we had in the pavements the value one third our investments in them the streets could be cleaned 60 that such abominations As the pervading and penetrating dust yesterday would be impossible. All persons subjected to this discomfort should remember that the fault is in our profligate system mis govern men to but partially corrected by the Board Public works. Is there not rather too much mystery about the examination . Holland is it incumbent upon those who take testimony for state Ohio to exclude reporters to should be glad to see the Sun Shine in upon and the wind blow through the election frauds october. If there Are any republicans in this scrape let them be dragged out and put in the Penitentiary with the rest. A a one the important questions before the people Cincinnati at the april election will be whether councilmen Aud aldermen Are to be elected who will further the interests the Gas company at the expense the people at Large. _ the ordinance fixing the Price Gas at $1 75 per thousand feet was yesterday postponed by the Board councilmen. We Aie not sorry for it tho figure is too High. Now we need the Stryker Bill enacted into a Law and we Call the attention the people to tho Progress that Bill. Let them observe the lobbyists engaged against it the members who oppose it the dilatory motions that Are made and by whom. A better Quality Stone and mortar in the foundations the great music Hall would gratify competent observers. A Little More Lime in tho mortar would be a help. The people at Large should supervise the work. A favored Republican two for value received were to have their names the repeaters tickets but there was a kick against that at democratic Headquarters and the names were noised. The Indianapolis Sentinel mentions As a matter reproach that we have a a paid correspondent at Indian Jolis. Does the Sentinel As a matter Dimity refuse to pay its correspondents friends . Hays were remarking last evening that As they 1 id agreed to abide by the decision the electoral commission they supposed they would be obliged to stand it. We suppose the Ash barrels and boxes that adorn the sidewalks our principal thoroughfares were with few exceptions emptied by the wind during the dust storm Yoster Day. _ the vigorous discussion the deciphered. Oregon telegrams is going exclusively in the journals that opposed . Tilden a remarkable programme Economy and Reform. It was not an edifying spectacle to see the special committee Gas reporting to the City councilmen yes erday. The actual state affairs was not unknown to anybody. The people a incite Nati should not allow any change to be mad i in the Board Public works this Spring that is to say . John Caldwell should be re elected.
