Quot Well done Good and faithful a Bill in the legislature providing for the conversion of toll roads into free roads by appraisement and Purchase by the owners of real estate along the lines of such toll roads is attracting much attention and favourable mention. The state Senate has struck Oil in important legislation by appointing a a Ommittee to inquire into the expediency of abolishing the contract system in state prisons. That system is saturated with iniquity and fraud and ought to lie thoroughly overhauled or utterly wiped out. Jefferson Davis sex chief of the Quot Imit cause Quot denies that he Ever cheated at draw pvt Ker or exhibited a want of belligerent qualities. He writes Quot the truth is i never drank nor gambled and any one who Ever served with me would probably say that in my youth i was Over willing to # he republicans in the legislature miss a grand Opportunity if they not agree upon and Presont a Well considered restrictive High tax liquor Law �8 a party measure. On a Square traffic restraint the result before the would be overwhelm singly against free whisky.

Shall Rasca Lity win As the journal predicted would be the Case the first movement of the democratic managers in the discloses their intention if possible to smother the pending amendments under a declaration that the said amendments Are not legally be the general Assembly on account of the failure of the journals of the sen ate and House of representatives to show them recorded in full on their adoption by the legislature in 1881 this plea is a far fetched technicality it is not denied that the amendments just As they now appear were passed through the first constitutional stage in 1881, in form complying with All the essential requirements of the Constitution. It is further known that the question of agreeing to and sub Mittin these amendments has been before the people and that the Deci sign of the people was in favor of such agreement and submission. It is also known hat a very important amendment to the Constitution became a part of that instrument Over a technicality exactly similar to that which is raised against the pending amendments. In the Light of All these facts the smothering of the amendments on this technical will be an outrage upon free a Polar government but there is still ther View of the matter. How it happen that the amendments not appear in full upon the journals of the Senate and House of 1881? it seems that the fact of this omission from the journals has been known far some time to certain persons. Now suppose it is shown that the amendments were set Forth in Fufil the journal of the House he Burnal was approved by the i Fini so signed by the speaker the inference would naturally follow that somebody had been tampering with that journal after it had passed from the custody of the House. The purpose of such tampering would be very Plain. There Are persons qualified to testify on the subject who Are satisfied that the amendments were properly entered upon the journal of the House m 1881. It is not a violent supposition to suggest that their omission from the journal without Tea Krowl Edib of tha Tofte or Lee would easily have been procured or accomplished. This being the Abe the democrats who Plant themselves upon the technicality of such omission will offer the prise of Success to those who planned ind executed the fraud upon which the omission May be based. If clerical errors or criminal mutilations of Public records Are thus to become More powerful than the Plain Well understood acts of legislative bodies the reign of Rasca Lity is As-8ure<l. The democrats in the legislature propose to usurp the political control of the City of Indianapolis by placing the police Force of that City under the authority of the state officials. Hence a Bill providing for a Board of metropolitan police commissioners for All cities of 25.000 or More inhabitants has been introduced and All the Power of the democratic caucus will be used to secure its passage. It is a purely partisan measure without a justification in the needs of any City affected or of excuse in any Well settled principle of government. It is Quot centralization Quot in its worst possible aspect of opposition to healthful and rightful local Independence and responsibility it is Well said that if the democrats could cast some of the odium of the Tennessee repudiation and Deal cation upon the republicans it would be a s Urce of great Relief to them. But the debt was created before the War when the state was under the undisputed control of the democracy and the Man who h v Robled the Treasury belongs to the same party. So every time an attempt is made to shift the Burden the party Only shows plainly that it is on the right shoulders now. To make matters worse it is Well known that the republicans have Issue Between free whisky and liquor a stood solidly for the Public credit. The frantic Effort made to Smirch them with a stain of repudiation will therefore prove futile. Indiana criminal statistics. An extract from the report of the state Bureau of statistics says the collection of facts in regard to crime has been attended with much difficulty. The Law As it is construed does not require clerks of courts to report to the Bureau and therefore less than half of the counties reported the trials of causes in circuit and criminal courts. A larger per cent of reports were obtained from justices and mayors courts. An oort was made to obtain the causes of crime so far As possible and though for the counties generally the data is not full it is believed to he reliable As far As it goes. Of the convictions for misdemeanours tried by justices and mayors 66.2 per cent were caused directly or indirectly by the use of intoxicating liquor. The Cost of trial for the 17,378 cases reported was $182,540. And the amount accruing to the school fund was $23,682. 83. Special Effort for the collection of statistics on crime not justified by the appropriation for the whole state was made in Marios county. Capable persons were engaged to take notes of criminal causes on trial and to make special inquiry into the character habits education and associations of each criminal convicted. The data thus collected May be relied upon and will be found interesting As Given in in the accompanying table. For the year ending August 31, 1882, which embraces the period of this investigation there were 5,021 convictions for orime. Of this number 77 had a Good common school education 2599 were poorly educated and 2,345 had Little or no education. In habits they stood Good to fair 41, fair to bad 555 and bad habits 4,425 the ratio As to associations were Good 86, fair to bad 1.030, and bad 3,955. The Fine and costs of these criminal Sonvi Otsons amounted to $90,354.76. The amount of same collected and turned into the Public Treasury was 16,093 24. The total costs of thew convictions alone amounted to $59,580.32. The dimber Lye liquor crimes and the per Oen it of he remainder due to the use of Mijkl Cainie liquors As the cause were fowl to be 3,119, or 61 plus per cent of pm whole number of convictions. Be trial costs of these amount-edto$agm84. Taking die ratio of the due to liquor causes As the court and police expenses due to sme cause which on careful investing jul is believed to be Correct it was and that the total Cost of Orina caused by the use of liquors for the year named is $79.433 40. Deducting the total a amp unt of fines collected and turned the Public Treasury $6.0f>3 -24, the France paid out of the county and Cit Treasury chargeable to the cause a Ruml was $73 340.16. It is believed this investigation of crime and Iti uses ii extended to the whole Sutsut would afford such data the cause of crime and Public would Surprise the people such legislation As would curtail the Large expend account. But this cannot less the Law is so amended court officers to develop crime on trials and make be same. I Creed for office. Socratic greed for office is party All Over the country tons of its Bourbon True in that cannot fail to be discs in the judgment of the Plain e clearly defined and emd of the masses for a re civil service is held in con the working forces of the party and every Day s of makes Assurance doubly sure it pm of that character can be democratic adm Nistra Republican management it women have been elec offices such As that of and appointed to clerical Posi bib in slate and municipal Golem its but now the democratic Demon i that democratic workers and to shall fill these places. In this Sti Alaw passed by a demo erratic la lature for the purpose of put Ting Taal aft vials of the state benevolent institutions shall be appointed by the governor. Kobe when it happens that the governor is a Republican and May appoint republicans the first Bill introduced in the general Assembly after its organization thursday provides that this Power of appointment shall be taken away from the governor and Given it ack to the democratic general Assembly. Nothing is sacred from the assaults of this greed for office. No inconsistency or Shulti fiction is too great for its capacious maw. When democrats Are in Power they must have every office in sight no matter what interests May suffer or l e degraded by being turned into spoils for political Summers like Jason b. Brown to snarl and Wrangle Over. It is a sad spectacle but it May be a useful and instructive one. Forewarned forearmed. There is time and Opportunity yet to prevent such disgraceful scenes in the National , the doomed murderer realizes the banishing Prince Napoleon to be undergoing terrors of the effects of the explosion of the Bokr of the Steamer Josephine the following appeared in the Indianapolis journal of the 11th inst the Logansport journal edited by a gentleman who had charge of tiie our Nalof the last House of representatives says with respect to the failure to find the full text of the constitutional amendments upon the record ii is not a violent supposition to Rii Preest that their of Seton from the journal without the knowledge of the Senate or House could easily have been procured or accomplished. This being the care. The Dera onus who Plant themselves non the of Saab oui Iwina will offer the prize of sue com to those who planned an j executed the fraud non which the omission May be based. If clerical errors or criminal mutilations of Public records Are thus the become More powerful than the Plain Well understood acts a i legislative bodies the reign of Rasca Lity is the Quot charge of the Jour Nal of the last House of representatives Quot above referred to was in the nature of a Arene Rai super Felon rather than a special responsibility. The writer of this furnished the minutes upon which the House journal was based and examined each journal to see that it was Correct. He was often assisted in the latter work by the standing committee appointed for that purpose. After such scanning the journal passed from his hands and also from the hands of the committee. The recollection of the writer is thit the constitutional amendments were All properly set Forth in full in the House journal of 1881, with the vote thereon when that journal was scanned by him As above set Forth and he is very certain that such was the Case. Washington. Washington january 18. His last Day of life. The condemned murderer chaises Shaw confined in the United states ail in this City is now aware that he has but Twenty four hours to live and the stolid indifference which until today has characterized his actions has Given place to a feeling of deep dejection and penitence. Until this morning he has been confident of a reprieve. His spiritual and Legal counsel have besieged the White House for a week and Shaw has i ten led to believe that there was a Good Prospect for a commutation of sentence or at least a stay of execution. When he was told by his lawyer about noun thursday that the attorney general had advised the president not to interpose he broke Down and wept bitterly. His appetite deserted him and for the first time to a realizing sense of his situation he does not now have any Hope of the postponement of the execution which is set for to it Morrow Between the hours of 12 and 2. Warden Crocker the executioner is confined to Bis House to Day with what he Calls his Quot Chickahominy Toth Evaita the Gallot a to be used is the same As that upon which Guiteau was executed and the tests which have recently been show it to be in As Good condition for satisfactory work As on the 30th of june last. Deputy Warden Ross showed the apparatus to a daily news correspondent this afternoon. Quot we have an elegant rope Quot he said Quot and it is in file condition. The knot is a Superb piece of work and there is no Chance for a balk congressman Shack Lorp. Representative John w Shackelford of North Carolina died this morning. He was a native of North Carolina and was l Orn nov 16, 1814. His Home was at Jacksonville in that state. He was elected to the 47th Congress As a Democrat receiving 16350 votes against 15,017 votes for Cannady ids lie publican opponent and 645 votes for Kornegay the Greenback candidate. In the House he served As a Memler of the committee on private land claims. He was not renominated As a member of the 4sth Congress and his term would therefore have expired in March. A terrible crime. Buffalo n.
