Pittsburg fun Wayne and Chicago r. R. Comp Tui Are Euga a in an Effort to fund their floating debt and interest warrants maturing up to Ctet Ber 1800. The president of this a Niny under the advice of the directors has issued a circular letter to the Bond holders of the pad in which present financial condition is set out and the purpose intended in the proposed funding of the a latins against the company is fully declared. It is deeply to be regretted that any necessity should exist for making this Call upon creditors but that necessity Lias Arisen from the difficulties through which the company has had to piss for several years past and not from anything of recent occurrence. The completion of a Large portion of the Ohio and Indiana Section of the Road and the entire building of the fort Wayne and Chicago portion of Tho same was carried through during a period of the most trying and perilous times in Railroad experience requiring prodigious efforts and the equip Layment of the Best Talent m the country amp yet with All the Energy expended and Talent employed it could not and would not have been completed but for the fact that it had the influence of the Pennsyl Van a Central i Railroad to Back it whose interests were intimately Conn cited with Tho final completion of this great line of Road through to connections at Chicago. The read has but lately been completed but it it almost superhuman efforts to effect it. It has had no time As yet to test value As a completed Enterprise. Limited crops the past year have operated it. Time has necessarily been taken up in perfecting arrangements at Chicago for business. All these things have been in the Way of Success and now that it has survived All these troubles and adversities and is prepared for doing an extensive business but before any of the benefits of the line As a whole have been developed it finds debt which has been accumulating for years too heavy for it to carry longer without some temporary Relief. It asks for Relief on interest maturing Soma fifteen or eighteen months ahead and floating debt. It wants to fund these claims by paying them All off with Bonds now unsold in the company s hands. It is not much to ask it is nothing compared with favors which Many other roads have been obliged to ask and have obtained too during the trying period of the last few years. It is asking nothing Bat what can to granted without injuring a sin Sile creditor to the amount of one shilling beyond simply extending the time of payment. It no injury to the stockholders but greatly to their Benefit if carried out. It is the result of things that no amount of skill or management Coald have averted after having gone Forward and completed the cute prize. No Man stands higher in the u. As a successful Railroad manager than or. J. Edgar. Thompson the present president of Tho Road and no one has More the Confidence of Moi died men in the country than he and yet he recommended this course As the Best to be adopted under existing circumstances. For skill and mental calibre the men who for years have been connected with the p. F w. Amp c. E. R. Stand second to none in rail Road management in the country. A these men All Recco Romend this course As tha Best one to be adopted in the present juncture of affairs. They Are All individually interested in Tho Stock of the company. Some of them deeply interested we Hap Pun to know men who Are now and have been for years connected with the Board of directors of this Road who Are Large owners in the Stock of the company one of them to the extent of $160,000, another .$50,000, and so on. Our citizens Here Are interested to Tho amount of some $700.000 of the Stock of the company. What has been done Baa been done with the consent of Largo stockholders As we understand it and to think Quot this ought to give conf Lence to others. We Hope the Road Wilt be Able to Complete the proposed a Rai ments for funding debt. We want to Sec it have a full and fair Opportunity to test value the coming year now that we have the Promise of Good crops. We want to see whether a Road from Chicago to Philadelphia and new York by the Way of fort Wayne and Pittsburgh is not As of find As one by Toledo or one by Detroit to new York. We have an idea that when the project Ltd Mes to be fully developed in a Fiur for the great Busi no Fri of the 1sorth be it to Tho Pittsburgh foil Wayno my chief go Railroad will Riund fint on the i of competitors for that Trade and Tot it will Ihen show such a list of earrings As earliest and warmest Frie Jive looked to see Reali the up Bike Are deeply interested in peeing this Road sustained and it should frown 4own All Cieber to injure it come from what qua bar i a May Rill speak.

Ate cop died apr Royl by a to Tinel of this jape Rathe we taking the. Saime View of the matter As we i the 2mes. However of this place after waiting a Long while comes out not Only in favor of the managers of the fair going to Cleveland to get their printing done but denounces us arid the Sentinel particularly for the course we have taken in the matter very Well so Fai As we Are concerned we can endure All that sort of warfare. But this attack upon us justifies us in examining a Little further into the doings of Thi. Society and to hint a Little at the probable motive which Load the times to become defender. The Dekal co. Democrat approves of the Sentinel s course in the matter and copies the article and after saying it has already done some printing gratuitously and would have published the Premium list without charge if the managers had got their printing done somewhere in the District it adds Quot since the above was in Type we have received a letter from a gentleman in Kendallville offering to Quot pay us for defending the the office roof the society in going to Cleveland to i it their he says Quot we paid �33 for printing 500 Bills which if divided Avion publishers would amount to about $3.0<. Apiece besides i doubt if there is % single office in the District that could get up Bills in As Good the above Only adding insult to injury and we can inform the gentleman that we Ain t for Sale and cannot uphold men who so far overstep the Bounds of Quot Home we venture the assertion that there Are not five printing of laces in the District but what can get up a better Job than the one done at Cleveland and we will bind ourselves to get up a better Bill even in our own office for any firm or society for $25, and leave the decision As to workmanship to competent now whether the offer to pay for defend ing tha society came from some member of it or not. Does not appear in the above , but it May be inferred that it and Here we have an exhibition of the kind of management which is carrying along the Kendallville fair. There in the neighbourhood of the late Kail old a cadent on to Mic sir Railroad on thursday last. Bodies were be ind if the riving linear Tith one Astl to of Ainan or of age Light hot hair sad whisker Long Mustache and Blank coat and on a Belt with Money. The Jother was the body of a Young Man named Campbell fim Elgin Illinois. He Wasion Tirey below these Rifice in the Sand head downwards. lure is Quot no Donl to much anxiety Felt on the part of the cite a is of the neighbourhood where the Accident occurred and on the part of those from a distance in search of their , and perhaps lost when those authorized by the Railroad com Pony a re upon the ground preparatory to re constructing the Bridge they were resolutely repulsed by the citizens of Mishawaka and informed that not an Inch of Timber or Stone could be placed in the Ravine until ample search had been made for the remains of the lost. The Mishawaka Enterprise Saya that reports arrived at that place from the Ravine two Miles Distant on Friday morning that another car had been found entirely buried in Sand and water and supposed to be filled with bodies. The Bells were rung and the citizens were Rushing with Spades amp a. In Masse to the spot. The editor of that a the ten or eleven aggrieved \ per saw a Jen whom he knew who said that they saw the ventilators and Felt the top of the car. On the same morning the body of miss Regan was found in the St. Joseph River less than a Mike below the fatal Creek. She was identified by or. Whitney of South Jend at House her Mother died by her dress. Pieces of clothing were found the same Day by the workmen at the wreck but up to 3 o clock p. M. No More bodies. The whole number of dead thus far discovered is fort one. The supreme court of this state has decided that w. J. Wallace who was elected sheriff of Marion county last fall was in eligible to office from causes stated. Before the decision was fairly promulgated to first they gel the press a Public and with it out having been cer in the District to favourably notice their movement until they get Well organized. All joined in sont th3 in Teleg ence broadcast among the people. Next there Are a few dollars to be paid out for necessary printing. Tho Home press that had been Labouring in their Beh if was then overlooked and Trio Money taken to Cleveland and the printing done there. Next there Are some things that cant a done in Cleveland they want the Premium list published and scattered All Over the District the Home press is asked to do this Ratai Loushe and when they refuse than an Oiler comos from some one to pay Ona of the newspapers in tha District if it will the officers of the society in their management. That offer was spurned As it deserved and As every honorable Man would have treated it. What next Well we do not pretend to say what next. We do not know anything about the further movements of the society in the Way of procuring a defence and we have no charges to make against any body or any one of our contemporaries. We Only know the it just at this juncture of affairs Daws orcs times has coma out with a very Able defence of the so Ietje that is All we know about the matter and Here to leave it for the present for people to make their own comments. A a brutal attack upon an editor. We learn from the Toledo Blade of the 0th inst that As or. C. Waggoner one of Tho editors and proprietors of that paper was passing along the Street on the evening previous i he was assaulted from Bechini by a person whom he afterwards discovered to be a or. Paul Edwards the canal collector at that Placa. Or. Waggoner received two blows from the effects of which he was stunned but not seriously bruised. Several persons interfered and protected him from further assault one of whom a or. Thomas Southard was violently abused in turn but not seriously injured. The cause of the attack Tho editor of the Blade learns was that his paper had been Deno juicing a ambling As a vice and Ime and that the Gambler is an enemy to society and to every value la interest. This principle the editor applied to Tho Case of Edwards who holds an important Public Trust and whom it says the court records show had been twice convicted of gambling. The facts charged by the Blade were not denied1 it for having called attention to what was before of Public record was the offence and the occasion of the attack. We have no question that the moral Power of the Community of Toledo is with the editor of the Blade and that he will not Only be protected from All violence to his person for having fearlessly done his duty in questioning the propriety of placing in office of Trust a Man known to Haye gambling habits but that it will be very unsafe in that Community for that class of men when their iniquities arc exposed to attempt to redress their grievances by personal violence. That s a kind of remedy that no Community of any Noral courage will Ever Buffer to be repeated Many times. The amp the of Tho hatches gamblers have not been forgotten nor the Emple list on to Community generally. ,. The press to Are Persia a will a protected any where in it fearlessly denounces Vici form in which it May appear. Nett who the men a re that Are guilty the High of Tieff stand in Public position the Ter their evil if guilty of Vidor paws and therefore Thor a tar for Clung them to the Job in of Public of nil Btl answer . If the people i a i of ,<�wb a Flurer he a pos Tain the of nth at under it Fri pall met a tidied to tha court below the governor took upon himself to regard the office As vacant and has appointed a or. Gulick to fill the place. This my g. Being the democratic candidate for the office against or. Wallace at the last fall s election the appointment is objected to on the part of the citizens of Marion county on the grounds�?1st, that the office was not vacant until the lower courts had finally acted on the matter which they had not at the time of the appointment and secondly. That to appoint or. Gulick was to put the majority of the i of be at open Defiance who by an election have decided that Thuy did not want or Gulicki and the office should have been filled by ordering another election and not by appointment. The question has caused considerable discussion in the newspapers of Indianapolis and the governor is very much censured for the course he has taken in the matter. Or. Wallace in the meantime refuses to give up the office and the clerk refuses to receive the Bonds of the appointee until the office is declared vacant by due course of Law. This Case is but another one of Many in Stanicci of democratic practices where the party in Power undertake to place men in office against the wishes of the people and not infrequently against the usual form of Law. Witness the election of Brigit and Fitch the bogus senators and the frequent appointments by the president of the u. S., of men to places of Public Trust whom the be Piile have inject eds Glancy Jones for example. . Our co temporary the times in anxiety to espouse the of the democracy As it does on almost every conceivable occasion adopted and advocated the cd ass letter refusing the Protection of the government to naturalized citizen., when returning to their native land . But in doing this latter service to new found friends it must have forgotten a Little of mid night lantern Creed. It must have forgotten it was a know nothing for this last step is even against their principles if what Folly is authoritative and we presume it is read it the american know nothings on Cass a meeting of the american party held in Cincinnati on Friday evening last the following were approved and advocated by several prominent members Ite solved that it is the Cardinal doctrine of the american party to the dignity and character of american citizenship until the name american shall be More feared and honoured in the world than Ever was the roman name. Resolved that it is the duty of the government of the United states to protect the rights and persons of All citizens wherever they May be by right of Law or treaty without fear favor or distinction with All i urges of Law treaty and if need be by Arias. Dawson is evidently outside of every Quot healthy political Vigani Zatio just now.
