Fort Wayne Daily Gazette (Newspaper) - January 22, 1872, Fort Wayne, Indiana Fort a Avn daily a aze let monday , january 3 2, 18�z2. I alg a to. Boat. Q. Moz Tiea. I 0.8. Alex Wqde esitob8� Pirsli Shubs ios Dat. J Ash Abt "2, 1873. To ext state school superintendent. As the Lime approaches for holding the Republican state convention it is very important that the right Man for each office should be brought before the Public. In no other Way can the people inform themselves or instruct their delegates for whom to vote. For this reason therefore the Gazer Are has not hesitated to present the claims of everyone for the office it has thought him capable of filling with Honor to the state and with credit to himself. Threis however one office Sute superintendency of schools of which we have not yet spoken and for which we have presented the claims of no one. Not that we regard this place of Little consequence or Are indifferent about who Hall fill it for we consider it one of the most important offices and often perhaps attended with much difficulty to select a person who shall be Able to perform its duties satisfactorily. It requires a Man of ability in More respects than one. While he must be a scholar a student of books and of human nature one who can not Only make and understand text books but teach them As Well he must also be a practical business Man a thorough organizer and one whose Broad and Liberal views shall do much hastening the time when education shall be the Only condition on Winch the right of sufi age exercised. Fortunately for Indiana it possesses such a Man in professor Barnabas c. Hobby and we Are glad to find Liat the Indianapolis Joun tal and other papers Are factoring Bis nomination. He is ail that we could wish him to be. His Early academic training and subsequent discipline in scow of and colleges have Given him ample opportunities for becoming a thorough a Bolar which combined with a Long experience As teacher and prof amp Susor would him i to do much toward enhancing the efficiency of our Public school system he is also a Man of find executive ability whose plan of organizing the work to be accomplished would be both practical and thorough. This of itself May be unimportant but when the present inefficient Stem of Public instruction outside of oar larger towns and cities is examined and understood the need of having thorough organizer at the haad of our Public schools will be fully realized. But As a Man of Broad and philosophical ticks docs professor Hobbs stand before All other men for this important office. He believes implicitly in our Public school system and rods it As the one grand safeguard of our liberties. To educate the people in his Opin is to qualify them to govern we cheerfully give place in Uii Ouirt Inin to an explanation from the Lafa ire Churi in concerning judge Orth s position during the last congressional election in his District. It was generally known that he assisted the be publican cart a in the election of 1870, by making a vigorous canvass of the state but it was not so generally known that he entered As energetically into the in his own District As the courier states. Tie Gazette has a cause for treating judge Orth otherwise than with Justice and fairness. He is a Man whose character and Public services entitle him to Public respect and Confidence and should he receive the Kerub lican nomination for the chief offic e in the state the Gazette will give him its cheerful and Earnest support. The new Orleans Republican which is the official journal of the u. S., takes Strong ground against the Carter faction in the Louisiana legislature and supports governor Warmouth. It claims that the Carter faction is in Active sympathy and coalition with the democrats. It claims further that Carter As speaker of the House has Lent his Aid in passing All kinds of corrupt and fraudulent Bills arid that governor Warmouth As the Friend of the people has steadily resisted corruption in every form. The attempt to make president Grant responsible for this disturbance is a Complete failure for both factions Are in favor of his re election. The Best joke we have heard lately is on a democratic editor an acquaintance of curs who hunted All through the new testament to find a Correct version of the ten commandments and after Hunting in vain concluded that his Bible inst be a revised edition and that the commandments had Ijichi accidentally or otherwise left out. Our new Rah Road.

The ume has come when Odoca Tiona men who arc bold Anoai and willing to enter upon such reformatory work should be placed in portions of authority. According to the rept of the United states commissioner of education in 1870, there Are present in the country eight Millunzi of dul Disien. Of this number the Aven Stten Dafoe upon our schools is Only 3,200,000, while the average number not in attend since is 4,800,000. When it is remembered slut the institutions of our non an educational basis that the intelligence of our people is a sol Atelj Ewe tial to their Freedom and to in to have our strength and safety consisted is it not a startling fact that we Are in danger of being overthrown by ignorance four million of children not in attendance non school and half of these perhaps All of them soon to control our count in by Thor ballot on pint state superintendent be it said to Chi Cmor Lias declared in favor of compel Sony Edna ten and we sincerely Hope Aat although the democratic pr6ss Are for this reason endeavouring to Slaughter him at their coming convention the Good sense of the delegates will not allow him to be Laid aside for any a a Jung who May happen to Disfavour so Souid and Demoe tie a principle for if we must have another de Contie state superintendent let us have one who has Backbone enough to look out for the people s Good though the manner May be unpopular at the preset time. But As there u not the least Chance that a Democrat will be elected let the be publicans select a Man who is fully committed on this Quei on. In other words let them nominate and elect Phat Fessor Barnabas c. Hobba who believes that it of it to be Teg a penal offence for anyone to be enable to read or write.

This Condo Sid is quite As definite and in the argument of the boy who Quot if there a any Taii like it is one thing better Thain Ose of the most eloquent Legal speeches Ever made at the Indianapolis bar was that of general Thomas Browne a few Days since As one of the prosecuting attorneys on the trial of James Foster for the murder of Calvin Hatfield. The 8peech,which produced a most powerful effect upon All present was published in full in the Indianapolis Jour Tud and whoever read it could not fail to be convinced that it was the production of no Ordinary mind. It is a Model of close analysis convincing Are Montand natural eloquence ofe pres in of.

This speh adds to his already enviable reputation As a lawyer and his ability As a convincing Public speaker. The comp Eton of a Railroad through a country which has never heard the whistle of a locomotive or the rattling of a lightning train is an event Long to be remembered by its inhabitants. The narrow opening through which the Iron rail is extended seems to be a pathway for Light and the first train that rushes through bears with it a Ray of Sunshine Wlinich shall reclaim the country from the Rule of his satanic majesty the Prince of darkness. The very presence of the Iron King sending up its Clouds of smoke and startling everything with the Power of its escaping steam imparts new life to the Woald around and As if by magic changes dense forests into Fertile Fields and slow plodding rustics into an Active Enterprise ing people. This is the Peculiar work of every Railroad and wherever one has been constructed the introduction of inventions and rapid cd Ges along its entire line seem almost Mirac Loiis. Especially is this True of the it. Wayne Echmond amp Cincinnati Railroad so recently completed. Many of the counties through which it passes have heretofore been unconnected with the world beyond them save by the circuitous and at times impassable roads marked out by the Pio Neer settlers. Small settlements have vainly struggled to become thriving town it industrious hard working Farmers have been thwarted in their attempts to create Thrifty farms while the spontaneous productions of the soil the venerable Woods the growth of centuries have by their very isolation remained unharmed. But in a few months everything has undergone a change so noticeable that it is truly remarkable. The condition of the counter and of the people is entirely different. New towns Are springing up in the very heart of the forests old settlements like Decatur and Portland Are filled with new life and generous Hopes for the future and business of All kinds once so Dull and unpretentious is ringing up with wonderful rapidity. All this is the work of the new Railroad which messes. J. L. Williams William Parry t. J. Nixon and others constructed in such an incredible Short space of time. The distance from fort Wayne to Eich mond is ninety one and one half Miles and throughout the entire line the Road is graded tied and ironed supplied with sufficient Side tracks and water tanks while the streams and Rivers Are crossed with substantial durable Bridges. Neat and commodious passenger depots Are being erected at the different stations which Are located with As much reference to the convenience of the people As of the Railroad company. Of the thirty two stopping Plara Between the Termini of the Road very few Are As yet of much importance the majority of them having sprung up since the completion of the Railroad. From fort Wayne to Decatur a passenger would scarcely know he had parsed a station unless a sudden or Long Stop called his attention particularly to the fact yet there Are Adams Hoagland Williams and Monmouth stations before reaching the Little town of Decatur the capital of of Adams county situated 21 Miles from it. Wayne. Here however the train stops for Wood and water As Well As passengers and also passes the train bound North. The very appearance of the town shows it to be an old one but without having Long had the advantages of Railroad communications. It on Bers about. 1200 or 1300 inhabitant its streets Are regularly Laid out and several very Fine Brick and wooden buildings ornamented with the usual number of Good grocery and Saloon signs Mark the business portion of the town. The court House and county buildings Are in a dilapidated condition but the county commissioners have voted 71,000 for a new edifice which will probably be built during the present year. The manufactories of Decatur Promise to be extensive and of great value to the town. There Are a number already in operation prominent among which is the Shackley wheel company and the Opportunity for getting Timber via the Railroad must be instrumental in inducing other and similar concerns to locate there. In one of the Survey reports of Lieut. Maury of the u. Navy the statement is made that the timbered land in the Western part of Indiana South of Decatur is not excelled in the world the Only tract of country equating it being in the Northern part of Russia. The f. W., e. Amp c. E. E. Passes through the Center of this Timber which is of itself a sufficient guarantee that the Road will be a financial Success. While at Decatur we stopped at the Miesse House which we commend to the travelling Public. Passing South we halt Only for an instant at Monroe Berne Geneva and Bri ant stations which have sprung up with the Road and Are by two or three houses a grocery school House and saw Mill. At Geneva formerly known As Buffalo messes. J. D. Hale amp bro., have located for the purpose of dealing in produce and farm implements. Their Ware House is connected with the depot and they have the Prospect of doing a Good business. It is such pioneers men who build up a town and with it a Good Trade that accumulate wealth. At Portland we found a town not so Largo As blur let . The pea Aiice of a newer Anil a ii Ore i a to in i ing okie. The buildings were Ofui pact and a very line court Lionso and jail formed a a cuter around a Liili seemed to be transacted. Jay Coli by is made of excellent farming land so that the country is really in Advance of the town. For this reason Portland will grow rapidly and become one of the most important towns on the Road. The Headington House is the Best hotel in the state for a place of the size of Portland and will do much toward giving the town a Good reputation. At Ridgeville the Road crosses the pan handle line and at Winchester connects with the Bee line from Indianapolis. From Winchester to Kich mond it is Twenty four Miles and there Are eight stations none of them however being of any importance except that they Are the nuclei of future towns and cities. The country around them is Rich and Fertile Well settled and finely improved. The different roads entering at Eich Moud arc building a depot which when finished will be the fit in the state. It is made of Brick 80x200, with Stone Arches and will contain besides the usual baggage ticket and sitting rooms the offices for the officers of All the roads. The management of this new Road like the others of which a or. Gorham is super intend to is most excellent. Notwithstanding the Road is new and a ballasted the trains run regularly and at a Speed equal to those on the older roads. Since the Road was opened Only two trains have run behind time and this was occasioned by a freight train getting off the track. The conductors and other officers Are thorough gentlemen and do everything in their Power to make the passengers comfortable. This is More noticeable from the fact that the names of the stations Are new to nearly All travellers the arrival and departure of trains unknown and no tickets sold at the depots which occasions the asking of Many questions by All passengers. But in no instance did we hear a Hasty answer Given or see anyone treated in other than a gentlemanly manner. We Are sorry we did not learn the names of the conductors for railway officials of so much politeness should be known to the Public. One thing however in connection with the management of the Road we were sorry to learn. The local freights have been put up so High that merchants find it almost impossible to pay them and make any profits on their goods. This is a general complaint along the entire line of the Road and should be carefully looked into by those having this matter in chaise station agents and officers of still higher authority state that the Road would make More Money by decreasing the rates for local freight. We shall be greatly disappointed if this Road does not materially Aid in the growth of it. Wayne. The excellence of the country which it opens up must be a feeder to our City rather than any other and if our business men begin in time they can Contr the produce and the Timber of this Section of our state. But Cincinnati men Are already alive to their interests and if we would derive Benefit from the Trade that legitimately belongs to us we must be As industrious As they Are. Passenger trains Are now running regularly to Cincinnati and no better or More direct route can be taken by our citizens. A. Artemus Ward.

Gray having failed i was called to his editorial chair and thus became associated with or. Browne on the Cleveland Plain dear. Soon after being thus associated with him a Lively discussion arose Between us which was a prelude to the initiative first letter in which to use a figure he aimed at big games aimed Well and brought it handsomely Down but the crowd was so charmed with the report of his piece that no one Ever saw the game he bagged. This was a source of infinitely greater amusement to or Browne than was his letter to the people As paper after paper came in from Day to Day with his letter copied and his Point utterly ignored in the editorial comments. Quot Artemus Quot went wild Over the More comical idea that he had completely hid his subject under the ridiculous rags he had clothed him Only As ornaments and what he had intended As a keen Sharp Point Whas wholly lost. He at once decided to hide the game and accept the plaudits awarded him for a hit he had no idea of making and never in any subsequent letter did he even allude to the lost Point. This is its history. We entered the office about the Samo time on one very Stormy morning.
