Indianapolis Indiana Journal (Newspaper) - February 11, 1837, Indianapolis, Indiana Of the pauper committee for the investigation or if the commissioners have been guilty of a dereliction Ordi Ity with regard to the internal improvement Loans Why not investigate Tho matter before the standing committee on the canal fund Why was not the Wii Ole investigation directed to either of those standing committees or to both of them the investigation would then have taken place through its legitimate Channel. Such a course did not answer the purposes of the mover of this inquiry it was necessary to take this extraordinary Many ouvre for the purpose of magnifying the transactions by giving it a fictitious character of enormity and induce the Public mind to anticipate a most extraordinary devel Pement of moral obliquity. I called upon the senator from Carroll at the time for information to merely specify the charges or even to intimate to the Senate the object of the investigation and the Only reply that he then gave was in substance that the fund commissioners had not acted correctly and it was necessary to investigate the matter and notwithstanding the prediction that was then advanced As to the result of this inquisitorial farce the committee of nine was appointed and although i requested the Senate to excuse me from the service yet contrary to Ray wishes i was retained upon the committee. The friends of internal improvement were Over reached i Mea the full bloods the crosses and mongrels and Disalle Ted of the system tricked and out managed them and we were told in so Many words that the fund commissioners were unnecessary and we ought to abolish the Board. That avowal was sufficient of itself to have put the Senate upon its guard. Was there any senator who seriously to bought that an investigation was really necessary Why then did the friends of internal like sheep in shambles permit themselves to be hampered by a disaffected minority i he whole transaction of the find commissioners had been thoroughly and minute by investigated by the standing committees on the state Bank and on the canal fund of both houses and the result was generally but the committee was appointed and after great Parade in the examination of persons and Pancis and documents of the Dank Ollices and j3ank books and documents and the correspondence Ofle Euben m. Whitney &c., the commit acc have discovered the very facts that the fund commissioners themselves reported in their report to the legislature and we Rich the world has been in Possession of months ago and Wlinich no Jerson has Ever attempted to conceal. Promote the interest of the state should posse financial Talent of the first order and yet certain senators would restrict their per diem pay while actually employed to the pitiful allowance of two dollars per Day. The door keeper of this Senate is allowed three dollars and even the Little boys that Are engaged in the most menial services about this Capitol Are allowed one Dollar and one half per Day. The senator from Carroll tells us that he is the Friend of the internal improvement system and that he wishes to throw around that system every preservative to guard and protect it from premature decay and that it is absolutely necessary to curtail it of every species of unnecessary extravagance. Sir such Friendship for the system of internal improvement that is always throwing some obstacle in the Way of its peaceful and successful Progress and with untiring Effort exerting itself to cast Public odium up the official conduct of meritorious Public servants who have rendered valuable and important services to the state in the promotion of that system is a species of Friendship not Worth thanking god for. The Board of fund commissioners Are As necessary to keep up the proper checks and balances in the prosecution of the great scheme in which the state has embarked dec dually As much so As the Secretary and treasurer of state and auditor of Public accounts Are requisite to preserve a wholesome equilibrium in the administration of the affairs of the state. If sir there Are any who feel cilia gained at the regulation the fund commissioners have adopted with regard to the internal improvement fund i Hope that this Senate will not further Aid the gratification of those whose friends May have been disappointed in handling the Public funds according to their own dictation. On or. Morgan s motion to Amend the Bill to re organize and regulate the militia of the state of Indiana As follows to wit nevertheless that All persons conscientiously scrupulous of bearing arms who Are not disc Ial tied by age non age or bodily inability be and they Are hereby attached to and shall constitute a part of the sedentary militia any thing in this act to the contrary not withstanding. Or. Stanford remarked in substance or. President i feel it to be a duty which i owe to the people whom i represent As Well As to myself to make a few remarks on this sul inject. I sir am one Vjio believe that a Well organized militia is important to the safety of our National the majority of ii Lii , As Well As to tie Good order of society. The militia will organize in every county and move on with spirit being freed from an incur Berance which has heretofore Hung upon their skirts As a dead weight. Anid where is the necessity of harassing men s consciences in time of peace i do not ask to have these people exempt in time of War. Now i ask senators for the Sake of preserving the peace and Harmony of those counties in which these people reside to consent to the amendment. And last of All i ask senators on behalf of that quiet industrious and conscientious people to do As you would wish to be done by under similar circumstances. The Bill of the House being before the Senate to Amend the act entitled Quot an act providing for an equitable Mode of levying the taxes in the state of or. Morgan moved to strike out of said Bill so much As repeals the Law of last year allowing twelve and a half cents on rach poll and five per cent of the state Revenue for school purposes. Or. Walker Rose and said that he Felt it his duty to reply to tiie gentleman from Jennings or. Vawter and the gentleman from Jefferson or. Hillis who had opposed this motion. He said Quot i am a Friend or. President to internal improvements at least to such a system As is general in its effects and will tend to Advance the Good and Prosperity of the whole country. But if the system of last year is Only to be promoted by snatching away tiie pittance now Given for education purposes it cannot meet with my support. I have been congratulating myself upon tie Prospect we had of advancing our system of common schools it was a Quot subject dear to my heart and i have looked Forward to the Day with pleasing anticipation when All the Little boys and girls of our state or i Mig it say of our forests might be admitted to enter our schools free of expenses and such i believe will be the Case if the Law should be suffered to remain As it now is. He said i was somewhat amused sir at the remarks of the senator from Jemmings or. Vawter and particularly when he reminded the senator from hush Gen. Morgan of his great liberality that he or. Vawter Hud voted for the Survey of a Road to Cambridge unbounded Oon Rosity what unparalleled Liberali let not the senators before alluded to suppose that i am actuated by hostile feelings to them in these remarks no sir they have my sincere respect but i am deeply convinced that their policy is a most ruinous one--1 am in favor of supporting a system of internal improvements founded upon Correct principles As before mentioned and our common schools also. Like hand Maidens they should March together. The first will bring a bout an association of ideas customs and interests in the whole american people that will indissolubly tie us together As a nation and tend to give perpetuity to our government. The latter will throw Light to our children will make them tenacious of their liberties will attach them to our political institutions and will enable them to defend their rights and take their parts better than we have done ours or theirs. House of representatives. The Bill providing for assessing the Revenue being under consideration or. Lee of Bartholomew moved to strike out Quot fifteen cents Quot and insert Quot seven cents on the 100 dollars Worth of taxable property Quot a or. Proffitt said the time for which 1 have been so anxiously looking has at last come. The Day of trial has arrived. We shall now learn who Are and who Are not willing to meet respond Sibily. Now sir the Reni a of internal improvement will be known. I was prepared sir to hear Many excuses Why gentlemen would not Vole for this Bill but i did not expect them from the Quarter in which they have made their appearance. This sir i a cold selfish world of ours. We have friends in the Days of our Prosperity Sunshine friends sir who will not meet the storm who shrink cower Wither at the momentary passing of the Cloud. But we sir must not falter. We the friends of internal improvement must stand unbending despite the panic speeches of some gentlemen and the threat rings of displeasure from the people. The amendment proposed is a test questions a question decisive of tie Fate of the Bill and if adopted will stamp our character As a state and arrest the Progress of our works of internal improvement. The crisis has come sir and though it should be the last act of my political existence i shall discharge my duty.

Visual or individuals. I do not any Cna task and should Ever be regarded As such for a in r tor with such feelings but it is evident that Liere is a Quot malign influence controlling tic operations of some individuals who feel a deep interest in the result of this investigation. What should have called Forth the castigation contained in Llie report of the minority where lies All the Offen Reily to tin honorable senator from Jeffer ports sir if they live not discovered any tiling new themselves they have discovered by their movements to me that my anticipations were Well grounded. It was necessary to noise tiie matter abroad that the attention of the Public might be directed to look with a jaundiced Eye upon the of Ocial conduct of the fund commissioners. The 13th Section of the act of last Winter providing for a general system of internal improvement makes it the imperative duty of the fund commissioners to adopt such rules and regulations As they May deem necessary for the Security and proper application of the internal improvement Loans. In pursuance thereof they have adopted such regulations As Are Well calculated to secure the fund and to promote the Best interest of the state. The regulations adopted by the fund commissioners Are Well calculated to prevent any future delinquency that might occur by imprudent or unskillful management of any member of the Board of internal improvement. By their judicious regulation the funds Are vested so As to yield a handsome interest to the state and Are Only drawn for As the exigencies of the state May require for actual expenditure. But there appears to be another Hydra headed Monsev that troubles the nightly visions of the senator from Carrolls it is the per diem allowance of the fund commissioners the senator tells us that they have received b4 dollars per Day whilst engaged in making Loans two dollars of which is charged to the state Bank and the other two is charged to the Wabash and Erie canal fund besides their necessary expenses. Sir has there Ever existed a doubt in the minds of the Bank directors As to the Bompensa legislative body to enact Laws Wlinich will in their or Hillis i would inform him that the lit operations come in Contact with the religious senti tie Bill to which he alluded Ami which now lies in Enthof a Large and respectable portion of the peo i on the table was Only to allow a Chian be of Bonds i be. And secondly that the burdens imposed and a where wished to sell their Slock in the i Itsos required of the citizens of a coins mini the Lawrence Burgh and Indianapolis Road and to should be As equal As possible. Now sir to i desired to release their property from mortgage Ding of the fund commissioners have the Nii j King All things into consideration i do not Hesi by substituting in lieu thereof the property of the Jority discover etl any thing by All this clamorous Lite loaf irm that this Bill As it now stands a does a purchaser. An opposition to that Bill and to the and uncalled for invest ligation Oiler Tolian what i impose unequal Burthen upon the conscientious measure now before the Senate comes with a bad to be found in the commissioners books and rely scrupulous for while others suffer members Grace from that senator. He also it should to of their families and societies to become a pub remembered hails from the Oiler terminating nation lie charge and in Many inst aces at a vast sex Point of this Twenty two Milos of Quot Deendi in is Quot Pense under the prove a Gros Ovioe poor or pauper yes sir he comes from Madison the South end Law Liis inoffensive industrious and humane peo of this cheap Road that according to an estimate pie support their own poor which is More than reported to the legislature last Winter was Only an equivalent for All the military services perform to Cost about eleven thousand dollars per mile de by of theism not Only so but these people re but which now is thought will Cost about thirty fuse to receive any Aid from the school funds to de thousand dollars per mile for the Mere grading Cate their children leaving the whole of the fund exclusive of the superstructure. Our ears last for the Benefit of those who choose to perform Mil Winter were frequently saluted with that Sena itary duty. Should the conscientious have no credit for All this now sir if these people Are compelled to do military duty in addition to All this it must be obvious to All that their Burthen is greater than that imposed on others. But sir toi s eloquence reminding us of the importance and cheapness of this work and this was held out As an inducement forts adoption into the system of internal improvement then in contemplation. I confess or. President i had my doubts the greatest evil to be produced by this Bill As it j at the time of either the usefulness or cheapness now stands will grow out of the collection of the fines. This sir will create the most disagreeable questions and divisions in the election of officers whenever they Are enforced or attempted. Yes sir they will have their influence upon almost every election in the country thus disturbing the peace and Harmony of the people. Yes sir these questions and divisions will have a powerful and deleterious bearing upon the military elections themselves for there being no salary attached to military Oil ices these offices Are generally sought by men who Are seeking a laudable popularity and who do not wish to Stop there but to Advance to some More profitable if not More honorable station. Thus men who might be Best qualified to discharge the duties of those military Oil pcs if they should have an Eye to any office in the civil train or departments would be deterred from asking for or accepting of a military office because by so doing their prospects As to Tion of the fund commissioners have not other offices Minglu by blasted forever for All Mil these allowances been made to the fund commis-1 itary officers Are looked upon by the conscientious sinners by the proper authorities without doubt or As being opposed to their interests and by them murmur yet the Hon Ralile senator seems to i treated according a by associating the have been endowed with the Peculiar sagacity of i conscientious with the Active militia you drive making the discovery that the fund commission Quot. Ers have received a per diem allowance not ranted by Law and Ali that in h engaged Anceo two dollars per diem Over and above to the citizens of any county to take the necessary rom the Field some of the most efficient military War men. Now sir these conscientious men will y Law and the gentleman also tells us not Muster nor will Thev pay their fines willing is opinion the fund commissioners Are i by. Then it must be collected by Law. Now i in a Small business in claiming an allow-1 would inquire what inducement is there held out what in thinks they Are justly elide to to by Law he also tells us that the intention of the legis la fire was that the fund commissioners should no t receive More than two dollars per Day for their services besides their necessary expenses whilst engaged in procuring Loans sir that senator was not a member of the legislature when either the act authorizing the Loans for the Wabash and Erie canal nor at the time when tiie act for establishing the state link was enacted a How then does to know what was the intention of the legislature outlier Wise than As he and you and i can learn from the two several ads themselves i understand that the use of inn Girage is to Convoy ideas and do not Tiese two the idea. A at enacted them a that they intended the fund commissioners should receive the i that they have received judge give a different construction Are we As senators not engaged in a Small business in this investigation appointing a select committee to inquire whether the fund commissioners have several acts dearly convey and express and determination of the legislate re the trouble to collect these fines is it for the purpose of punishing those inoffensive men i can see no other. It is imposing a Leavy Burden on military officers and i ask again for what Why sir it must be for the promo satisfaction of harassing that peace Alec portion of Community consciences Tell Kluun Liat it is wrong Quot to shed the blood of their fellow men. Or will the officers of any county i image in Toliese collections barely for the satisfaction of imposing a heavy tax on their c try for the purpose Ofosu Portingall the in the state for this will be the cd Eccl. Yes sir Henry county will be taxed at least one thousand dollars or the conscientious fines would amount to about that sum if the provisions of this Bill should be carried into effect a a hich divided among 80 counties will give to each about ten or twelve dollars and this is All that per them allow auries Henry county will receive for All the trouble and can any impartial difficulty of collecting this Money. Will Henry county collect i say she will not. Do you sup Pone sir that Wayne county will tax herself three t Lou Sand dollars and thereby disturb the peace and Tranquility of her citizens for the pitiful sum received More than two dollars per Day clothed of Twenty five or thirty Dollar a year l say Quot she with Power to Send for persons and papers with will not now sir permit me to say in Conlu Siou that it will be extremely difficult to organize an efficient militia Quot in a number of counties in this with Liberty to Quot Range creation and take a whack at jibe unify \ sir Hook upon the fund com now Ittis Sio ers As the most important Public offices state under the provisions of this Bill As it in the state it is Neci, thai , to Dis a ands. But permit the Bill to be amended As pro charge their Duuck it with tie ability necessary to posed and i have no hesitation in saving that of this work and thought it very questionable whether we should tax our people in All time to come to construct a Road terminating at a Point of no importance to the state at Large nay to Force them to travel or to pass their produce on this route when their business must naturally and inevitably Lead them either to Cincinnati or Louisville to subject them to the Cost Opas Sinathis expensive inclined plane then to ship aboard a steam boat and turn at right Angle through the Falls at an Addi o o o tonal expense of Money and time or to Cincinnati at something like the same disadvantage a a it is a Folly to think of Madison Ever becoming a place of importance More than other Little towns on the Ohio River situated As it is Between those two great Western cities. The god of nature has forbid it. All the funds of the state lavished upon the grading of its Hills would not make it conveniently accessible except from up and Down the River. The senator from Jefferson therefore should be the last Man who should attempt to throw obstacles in the Way or prevent the people from completing those useful lines or oppose Aid being granted by the state that would ensure their completion. But or president do not understand me As opposing internal improvements or As refusing the Means to carry them on. No sir far from it i am in favor of connect bag the East with the West the North Vith the South and giving facility to exportation and importation and at the same time to connect our works with those of a similar character at important Points with adjoining states of we Ich sir Cincinnati and Louisville Are the most prominent. In fact sir particular pains seems to have been taken in our present system to avoid these places although the Road from new Orleans through Nashville As Well As a Branch of the South Carolina rail Road terminates at Louisville and Cincinnati is a focus of roads canals and natural passes almost a Vii out number. The terminating Point of the main Branch of the South Carolina Road and the terminating Point of important roads running through Virginia Maryland Pennsylvania and new York. Yes sir this great Emporium of All our produce. This great Mart of All the West to which so Many other states Are directing their efforts to he the first to reach it seems to have been neglected by the friends of our present system of internal improvement nay every obstruction thrown in the Way of the people of putting in this link in the great Chain. I Tell 4lic friends of the present system that they Are misguided that the people will never Bear a heavy taxation and will with much More reluctance yield up their school funds for the purpose of attempting to bolster up Little Unin Octant towns in the state. For those reasons sir i feel it my duty to Ressi the present attempt to Rob our schools of the Little fund provided by the Wisdom of former legislation for their support sooner we leave this Hall the better. We have the Means of communicating with our people and availing ourselves of its opportunities we shall be enabled to place before them a True and Ungar bled statement of facts. We can show them that a deficit of $23,000 is occasioned by a failure of the Revenue of tie last year Quot that the a mount of taxable property in the state fell Short of the calculations made that fearing to make the and Valorme system of taxation unpopular the last legislature did not Levy a sufficient per centum to support the state government. We can Point to the vast increase of our population and its consequent increase of be presentation. The necessity of additional expenditures in a state so Fri Pill pop Al it Ting to too palpable to need course of the legislators of your last session who concocting a vast plan of internal improvements and elevating themselves on its popularity neglected to provide Means whereby to pay the interest on our Loans. Fearful of consequences they entailed the responsibility on us their successors and left us to discharge a duty which properly belonged to them. I sir can further prove that the imposition of a tax to support our Public works was not made with my consent. I urged the friends of education to postpone their claims upon the surplus Revenue yet a Lite while. I called upon the friends of internal improvement to rally in their strength to the Rescue of the system. But sir a strange fatality attended our councils and that fund which ought to have been applied to the support of the Public works has been partly appropriated to other purposes. You must now arrest your Onward March of improvement or tax the people. It is useless to attempt evasion. If the the country is not willing to carry out your legislative enactments let it at once be known. If the Quot system Quot cannot be sustained let it now fall. But sir can the people of Indiana standing in the elevated position which is their just a Ward can they sir expect miracles at our hands can they expect rail roads and turnpikes and canals to Spring up at our bidding do they think we Are endowed with the Power of enchantment that a glance a thought a wish of ours is All that is necessary to transform our rude forests to a Paradise and give to our infant country the giant strength of Quot Empire Quot states. No sir we have a Liberal a common sense people who know that through them All Power must come that from their pockets must be taken the Means of support that our works must be made at their expense and sir they will nobly cheerfully liberally contribute what we their representatives deem necessary. Gentlemen cannot say they Are unprepared or that they were not aware of the necessity of additional taxation. Before the i report of the committee of ways and Means was Laid Efforo the House tic chairman of that committee or. Crume again and again warned us of the error into which we were about to you were told by that gentleman of the deficit in the Treasury and the language used by the honorable chairman was such As i am this Day proud to repeat. But we Are told sir that we can pay the interest of our Loans out of the principal borrowed and thus avoid present taxation. This sir i pronounce a miserable policy a course of Legi Slation to which i can never subscribe. But a few j ears of this impolitic evasion and the interest will overrun the original amount borrowed i will never consent sir to shift the responsibility which it is our duty to assume on those gentlemen who May fill these seats next session. I have an unfaltering Confidence in the people and to them will i Trust to sustain the vote i shall record in favor of the Bill As reported from the committee. An act to orig Anikij t be county of Well. Gent of said Fusil to pay Over said Money hereby appropriated on said certificate. Sec. 7.
