Cincinnati Commercial (Newspaper) - January 22, 1881, Cincinnati, OhioThe Cincinnati commercial saturday january 22, 1881�?with extra Sheet. Is Young is. Mcclung. State meet from the latter an account his War services u neither Quarter nor Compromise asked Quot it evening one our reporter called upon colonel Mcclung. The gentleman whose nomination to the collector hip is now pen Ling to the Senate to get Liis version the War which 1# being made upon him by general Young. Colonel Mcclung said i do not question general Young s right by All honorable Means to oppose my nomination. This would afford no ground for personal feeling nor should the contest extend beyond the ascertained result the controversy. In All fair dealing in politics in elections when the result is reached controversy ceases. Nor do i question his Legal right to oppose my confirmation whether in doing so he Las placed himself beyond the Bounds which established rules a just sense Honor Hove fixed i leave to the up Bike. General Young Speaks Slig tingly my services during the War. I do not intend to engage in any controversy this subject. I volunteered at the first Call for troops the next Day after the issuing that Call took the oath a private Soldier in Caine Jackson the 23d Day april 1861. From that Day until november 13, 1865,1 discharged the obligation that oath in All Good conscience. I never sought any position nor sought to avoid any duty. I obeyed orders. I went where i was sent stood where i was put. I have never paraded my services have never asked preferment account them have never Felt that for Roy honest Humble efforts my country owed me anything. Hence general Young will hardly win a Victory in that direction. Whom i arrived in Cincinnati thursday evening i found by Reading the dispatches in the commercial that general Young insinuated a purpose to impeach my conduct As an officer during the War. I immediately telegraphed the following to Washington a if general Yonng makes any charge Ngann stay integrity As a Public officer i ask neither Quarter nor com prom this is my attitude. Inasmuch As he Renews his insinuations in this mornings commercial it May not be amiss to say that during the four a half years thy service no charge any kind affecting my character was Ever made. I settled my accounts upon my vouchers not by Euy i thief Bill As a idly As the clerks the Treasury could review them eleven years since received certificates non indebtedness from the several auditors tie Treasury. During the period my service i was a investigated a a inspected a a a spied a bit never accused. A considerable portion my clerks inspectors a Well As Tho pc with whom i dealt Bare died but Many them Are alive. I am quite willing that general Young a committee raided for the purpose shall Call them one by one put them to the teat to Runy go among the Bangs still third Street who advanced millions dollars upon vouchers issued by me with no Security except my Unrue my off dal report he May Call my neighbors who have known me for Twenty five years i will abide their testimony As to my reputation conduct. I accounted to tie Treasury department for moneys paid for purchases services to the amount Twenty five millions for property amounting to a value fifty millions As i cow recollect. And Sines leaving the a Lii Ary service i have lived upon my earnings during All the time except two years upon a salary. I have never owned the House i lived in cd kept for three year i sold it with the Purchase Money mortgage resting non it. It any charge had Ever been made against my integrity during the War if i had Ever raised suspicion Seadal if i had Everist caste among honorable High minded Inch. If i Hud Ever Given cause for evil surmising by the Possession display wealth there might be some palliation general Youngs conduct. It will soon be Twenty years since i entered the military service. It in More than fifteen years since my resignation was accepted. It would seem but honorable Man would for the Sake he own Honor be cautions in bringing any accusation now. I am not concerned about the animus general Youngs Falso malicious assault. Others May search out set in order his grievances disappointments. I am not concerned about his opposition within the limits which Honor rigidly axes for gentlemen. the License ordinance which the Low committee Council has prepared fills the Bill in a general any. In the first place it has a great super Loiety Over former attempts the kind in that it lets the sunday question entirely alone in the proposed regulations for Public performance amusements makes Nodi Cereue Between sundays weekdays. This is us it should be. Immoral shows Are quite As had week Days us sundays should not be permitted any Day. Respectable Heaters concerts. Ac., arc Juat a proper innocent sundays any other Day the week a bound be there More left unmolested also sundays. The second important Point is that according to the provisions the ordinance Al control responsibility Are placed in one Inaus hands. Many Cooks spoil Tho birth a divided responsibility is no responsibility at All. What divided responsibility a Many a cried administration Lead to has been clearly shown by the experience last year. The ordinance now proposed Givis to the mayor All requisite authority the Power to enforce that authority. If after the passage such a ordinance the evils now complained others continue to exist the people will know who is responsible for it. The mayor is i acted every two years the Publio Lias it in its Power to place in the position a Man from whom a Wise discreet strict yet Liberal use the authority vested in him is to be expected. In the bands a Puritan a sunday fanatic such an ordinance would get a dangerous weapon it is True but it is the business the people to see that no such personage gets the office. Another important useful provision is further. That which makes the right to retail liquors in Heaters mud other place amusement dependent a special permit from the mayor. It is proposed from Many sides to take away this right altogether but such a regulation would be a great mistake had a great injustice. There is absolutely no reason Why in respectable English Heaters Over the Rhine in Turner Hall a biter Hall dr�., the Sale liquors during a performance should be prohibited. On the contrary there is every reason for allowing it since without it hardly any these Heaters could maintain themselves. Of the other hand too there arc places in which such a prohibition would be altogether proper. To it is no More than right that he decision this matter should be left to the discretion the . An objection we would bring against the ordinance at one Point however is that the License Rato for Heaters is fixed to High. For other kinds shows entertain tents the feel Are Low enough. For Heaters however the Coet a License is fixed at $500 a year tent if not for All certainly Fop Many the Heaters is plainly too much. It would be unjust for instance to tax German theater which hardly s expenses in which plays Are Given Only once twice a week As much As the Large English Heaters which Are envied six to Nino times n week. A alteration should be made in this respect therefore the mayor empowered to Grant licenses at a lower Price according to circumstances. In any Case $500 could be retained a the maximum rate. A is it fair there were 11, elements a first class sensation at the Southwest Corner fifth Vine yesterday c orning at half past 1 clock. There was lir-1 Lio Ifcic Ink then a a ugly feeling finally a showing a a guns in the hands men not lacking nerve for their be.

Domestic i Felicity vent Jared a Hammond Street station. Herman Schwartz a German aged about Twenty eight was a Safe keeper at Hammond Street station last night. The charge Safe keeping was put against his name Fop the reason that no criminal one could be entertained. The arrest was made by officer Ratley complaint one Jacob Hack who claims that Schwartz who had been intimately Friendly relations with himself wife had spirited the latter away.
