Indianapolis Indiana Journal (Newspaper) - February 10, 1830, Indianapolis, Indiana Debate. It Marks of or. Linton on the Bill to pro vide for the re location of the Cority scat of Sullivan Coaney. The subject of a re location of the Ltd unto seat of Sullivan is one of Little interest to the state and a dry subject Abr discussion in this body. To the people of Sullivan county however it is a subject of some excitement and to her representatives one of much pm Barras intent. The question or. President now is upon a disagreement Between the two houses of the general Assembly As regards the terms upon which a re location shall be had. I believe i understand the objects of both petitioners amp demonstrators and with a moment s indulgence will set them out As they really exist. This Bill is predicated upon a petition signed by Between five and six Hundred persons who if citizens of the county and of age Are a majority of the whole number of voters. The a representatives under an impression that such was the fact and that a formidable remonstrance could not be got up thou Jet it desirable knowing the Xci tement upon the subject that a Bill should pass appointing commissioners to examine into the situation of the county and if expedient re locate or change its scat of Justice with a View of quieting the Contention which now exists. Since the Bill now before us Lias been under consideration however a remonstrance has appeared Sif and by but Veen four and live Hun ded persons accompanied by a certified copy of the tax duplicate showing that of those who petitioned and remonstrated there were of tax paying citizens a majority of thirty one against a re location thus making it a question of some delicacy to determine whether to incline for or against a Bill whatever Iii it be its features and indeed had this attitude been sustained the Bill would probably have fallen. I am relieved fortunately from this embarrassment by or. Boon the local representative. That gentleman has taken the petition remonstrance and tax duplicate and after critically examining and comparing them has certified to me a nun ber of names subject to taxation and eligible to vote this year who were not last equal to those on the Renao Strance and somewhat exceeding them thus rendering my course More Plain at the same time that it justifies the passage in Quot a Bill. The Only difficulty if the term can be applied to a subject so strictly local is the arrangement of a Bill the provisions of which shall secure the just rights of All concerned and As to these i make up my mind from the Cir cum stasices of the Case which i understand to be substantially As follows t acre Are three Points contending for the county seat Carlisle the geographical Centre and Merom the present seat of Justice to each of which they would not consent of submit to it and it would As manifestly be unjust on the other hand that the portion interested in Merom should be made to Contri Bute to the erection of Public buildings at another Point when but about one third of the county favoured it and when such buildings were already constructed on their favorite site. These considerations require attention and demand provisions which shall secure them. The representative who should under such circumstances neglect from a View of possible consequences to procure the passage of a Bill covering the whole ground would involve by his squeamishness the Best interests of his constituents. He would involve them in debt and difficulty to no other purpose than that of erecting Public build mrs at a Point disapproved by a decided majority of them and would be poorly qualified to legislate in cases requiring attention to the Good of the whole. Donations it is said of lots of land and Money were made by the proprietors of Merom As an inducement for the location of the seat of Justice at that place. To provide for the indemnification of these is a matter of necessity. By a suit they would without difficulty establish a claim to some a mount. The records of our courts show great embarrassment to have grown out of re locations of county seats where no such provision has been made in the Laws authorizing in the county of Wayne the proprietor having Given one Hundred acres of land to the county on condition that the seat of Justice should be fixed upon it recovered after a change had been effected not an appraised value for his land Iii the iced itself town and All. Nothing but the great excitement which led to Liberal donations and the strength of the count enabled the people to overcome the Shock and perhaps no other county in the state could have so Scon out grown the debt thus incurred. Every county in which these changes have taken place is Labouring under embarrassment and unable to make one step toward improvement particularly those in which improvements had been made and let the county seat of Sullivan be re located without donations and without providing a fund for the indemnification of All whose Legal rights May be affected by the change and no one can of hesitate to pronounce them bankrupt and ruined As a Community for years nothing else can follow. Then or. President let the Senate insist upon their amendments thereby requiring from those interested in the Point selected a sufficient donation to s cure the people at Large from taxation let those who Are to be benefited us Niport the expense. It is desirable that a Bill should pass but with provisions that will secure both the majority and the minority this can Only be accomplished by exacting from those who May be most concerned and most to be Bovo fitted in the event of a change a to nation equal to All the county can in the subscribers have just received from Philadelphia in addition to their former Stock a Beautiful assortment of Cali Coes Casia rfcs checks bed ticking Book muslims amp a.

The petitioners compose any Vray lose by a re location. Those of Carlise and the Centre who for the purpose of getting the seat of Justice Aii oat have United each intending to pursue its separate interest As soon As that object is attained. These interests combined amount to two thirds of the county and if United upon the same Point they could unquestionably carry the county seat but they openly avow their predilection for different Points and their Resolution to effect their separate objects so that no location can possibly be made without having two thirds at least of the people arrayed against it. I have proposed to the friends of the different Points an election of the people the passage of a Bill a hich should direct the Mode of Getling the sense of the whole county As regards the differ a ent Poi to establishing the county seat at whatever place might be indicated most eligible by a majority of the county but they All reject this. This wont do sir say they we each desire an arrangement suited to our different views. To answer the wishes of All the letters i have upon this Little subject would be to create a county making each of the contending Points centres of population centres of Trade or. Geographical centres. The thing is impossible. The True principle of adjusting the difficulty would be to let a majority of those who have to shoulder the expense determine where their Money should be appropriated but to this neither of to item will be brought. This being the Case the question arises whether the expense of a re location had not better be saved the county whether the present Bill had not better fall at once were it not for the excitement 1 should have no hesitation in saying that it should go no further but As the matter stands perhaps the other course that of passing a Bill had better be adopted. From the nature of the contest the necessity of distinct guards in reference to the interests to be involved must be obvious. It would be hard to compel two thirds of the county to contribute to the erection of Public buildings at a Point Wowch could not be accept blur Liaw Otic i.
