STILL MOVING. Gorman Hass-lUccling In tlio Eight, ccnth Ward. Coll for a Mooting in tho Eighth Ward. totter from tho Editor of the “ Eroio Presso.” Tho citizens of tho Eighteenth Ward opposed io tomporanco and prohibitory laws assembled lost ovoning at tbo North Bldo Tumor Hall for tho purpose of ©lToctlng an organization to bat tle against tho tomporanco candidates at next fall’s oloctlon. Tho mooting was called to order by Charles Kuobolsdorf, Esq., who stated its ’Object. Mr. Knobolsdorf was elected Chairman, and on taking tho chair said thoy woro not fighting Tor vfhisky and boor, but for tboir personal liberty. Thoy had como to this country to live in a land of liberty, and sot of oppression. Tho Kopnblicana woto most ly responsible for .those obnoxious lavs, and Ttavo forced tbom upon nearly all tho statos in tho Union. They have brought things, to such a stato that tho polico enter a man’s house to *soo whether ho is drinking boor after T o’clock. Ho spoko about tho undignified condtct of tbo Circuit Judges who nominated thottf olvoo and appointed campaign committees, os. If tho poo dle woro nothing but voting cattle. It is time that this stale of things was chaugel, and ho was glad that the Gormans tako such si interest in tho matter,-and turn out in such krgo numbers Whorovor a mooting is bold. Tho Hon. Otto Poltzor was calod upon for a epooeb. JIo said that thoro watfno uso in wast ing time in expatiating upon tin merits of Gor znan-Amoricaiiß as citizens of tlo United States. This movement, which was calod a “now move taont,” was not now at all. Tie ranks of such as had broken old party tios’for tho purpose of fighting official corruption old fanaticism woro only being swelled by now omverts. Ho, among otbors, had loft tho old pany for this purpose, and had fought most ff those that woro now placing tho knife at tho throats of those who woro moro literal than themselves. Ho expressed his regret anon ono point, name ly : That tho movoraon! had boon run so far mostly by Gormans. This was a grave error. A poor titlo had of ton. boon tbo causo of tho faimro of many a gooi’drama. This movement was stamped as a Oorirmu movement by tbo English press, which was placing thb wliolo thing in a false ligbs and had mode an uufavor nblolmpression upon many woll-mooning and .liberal-minded English-speaking citizens. Thoy desired to avoid Gorman Know-Notbingism, and they demanded tho samo of their opponents. Gcrman-Amorican citizens simply demanded that thoir moro liberal views, customs, and habits should receive tho consideration duo thorn in Slatf and city legisla tion. and that thoir ConstitUthnal rights should not bo curtailed or endangered by fanatical laws and ordinances. . Mr. James Ennis, tho nest speaker, said ho did not como to speak, tut only to see what action , was taken in < the Eighteenth Ward. This was a purely American movo mont, for tho purpose of opposing all fanatical and Puritanical laws. They uad rights, and they ask that tboso rights bo reepoctod. Thoy did nob , moan to toko any arbitrary, measures, but thoy Would peacefully fight the battle at tho ballot box. Ho showed how tbo present Tomporanco laws woro made by tho Legislature, and why thoy woro novor enforced, stating that tho peo ple hod always boon opposed to thoso laws, which woro only passed because It was thought that thoy would nover bo enforced. Sunday was tho only day of rest and recreation of tho poor workingman, who only took a glass of bcor on Sunday because thoy havo not tbo timo or in clination to drink ovory day in the wook. Tho Chairman appointed tho following Cam paign Committee: F. Woolfo, Wm. Sanderson, Frank Endor, John McCoffoiy, Miko Sullivan, Jas. Hanley, Gustav Eliol, W. O. Ohliu, John Btatz, Jacob Schicdingor, 0. Kuobolsdorf, M. Eucol, and M. Dioden. Tho mooting thou adjourned. V. EIGHTH WARD. 3b the Citizens of the Eighth Ward, Irrespective of A'o tionality or Party Creed: Tho undersigned committee of citizens having tieon instructed to invito tho co-operation of tbo liberal-minded citizens of tho Eighth Ward, without regard to their nationality or party creed, towards effecting a thorough organi zation for tho next city campaign, hereby request oil citizens who favor the maintenance of civil liberty iu its broadest souso, to partici sato5 ato in a mass-mooting to bo hold at Vorwaorts amor Hull, Twelfth street, on Wednesday next, May 23, whon good speakers will address tho people on tho lending questions at issue. Tho Gorman citizens, having taken tho primary stops in this matter, do not wish to havo their course misunderstood as a clannish ono. It is not thoir intention to make a fight for Gorman habits or usages, nor will they allow themselves to bo rep resented ns tho champions of “froo lagor.” They regard certain laws, now in force and strictly carried out by tho city administration, as an infringement upon tho civil lib erty guaranteed to thorn by tho spirit of tbo supromo law of the country, and intend, iu unison with tho liberal-minded citizens of all nationalitios, to moot thoir oppo nents on the legitimate political battle-ground of American citizens at tho ballot-box. In this campaign, thoy trust, they will bo sustained by nil supporters of trno republicanism, and by tho enemies of petty tyranny and narrow-minded despotism. Conrad l. Niceoff, Wm. H.

Ho the Editor 0/ The Chicago Tribune: Tho Inter-Ocean of Saturday’s issue publishes no article -under tho heading of “Tho now Know-Nothing Movement,” which contains tho following paragraph: • There seems to bo r&thcr n singular coincidence of ideas between Mr. MJcbnclis of the Freic Prase, Mr, “ Ossian,” and The' Tiud'une. Mr Michaells says the Germans propose to treat tho native Ameri cans as they treated tpo Frenchmen in 1870; that lo to say, shoot them, conquer them, and annex their territory .to tho German empire. This being an entirely Incorrect Interpretation of tho position which the Frcio Frcsae and my self havo taken in this movement, I would re spectfully ask leave to mako a fow corrections hrough tho columns of your paper. ' Tho Frcio Fresso opposes Sunday and tem perance measures on tho ground that tho Con stitution docs not recognize any State religion, tho latter because wo consider all such measures to bo prejudicial, and do not allow any one to proscribe to us when where, or whatever wo may oat or drink. Wo havo never protended to dic tate to our fellow-citizens how they shall live, but we shall also resist any attempt to oxoroiso Any similar control over us. We havo advocated that heavy punishment Should ho inflicted upon the drunkard; havo ad vocated tho closing of all those saloons which servo as an abode for rowdies and criminalsj hut Wo havo also stated that those places aro nui sances as well on weekdays as on tho Sabbath, nnd therefore ought to bo broken up entirely. At a meeting held recently in Aurora Turn fcallo, when colled upon to speak, I stated that if tho movement now inaugurated was Intended to Jbe degraded to a moro beer or whisky quarrel I should not join in it; that, however, I would ho willing to stand up in behalf of social equality of all elements, and against tho usurpations of those fanatics who, in manifest violation of tho Constitution of tho United States, attempt to force a national Sunday upon us, in the shape of s Puritanical Sabbath. I have frequently warnedthoQormans of somo notorious demagogues who are trying to make this movement a strictly Gorman cause, and or ganize a' Gorman Know-Nothing party, but I have also declared that tho Constitution guaran tees to every Individual tho .privilege of passing every day of tho wook (including Sunday) ac cording to his own inclination and discretion. Srovldod that ho does not commit any unlawful cods. A part or tho citizens have chosen to restrict eocial freedom and liberty of industry by com pulsory Sunday , aud temperance laws, by which thoyintond to prevent tho Gorman-Amorioans especially from upending a Sunday afternoon with their families in concert-linns or public gardens, partaking of a cup of coffee or a glass of beer, a privilege of which oven in monarchic al Germany they would never ho deprived. Ah by such measures tho conflict lias ac tually boon forced upon uu (likewise ns Franco forced war upon Germany in 1870), 1 declared that tho i'n-U JPnm would toko up tho fight In bobalf of social freedom and liberty of In dustry, and stand by that catiso up to the end. Tho Gormans aro everywhere acknowledged to bo peaceable and law-abiding citizens, and tho welfare of no commonalty 1b over endangered by them. Allwoaakla equal rights for all. If ,wo would submit to an infringement upon our constitutional rights without any attempt to de fend them in a lawful manner, then, in my opin ion, wo wore not worthy of being citizens of this groat republic. HospoetfnUy, BIOHARD MICIIAF.UB, Editor of tho Fi'cie J’rcasc. Chicago, Way 20, 1873, WORK FOR THE DETECTIVES. Two Cases of Mysterious Disap- pcaranco. A Citlzou of Now York and a Young Jcr scyninu Missing. Two cases of mysterious disappearance woro ropoiiod at tho polico headquarters yesterday. Tbo first was that of a citizen of Now York, named Bicbard B. Kent, doing business at No. 173 Bowery. Mr. Kont loft Now York to como to Chicago, by tbo Erie Hoad, on tlio 14th of this month, at 0 o’clock iu tho ovoning, intend ing, as ho stated, to bo absent two weeks, Tho object of tbo trip was tbo sale of theatrical goods, of which Mr. Kent is a manu facturer. Ho left word with bis family that ho would writo to thorn upon reaching this city. ’Last Tuesday thoy woro shocked by tho receipt of tho following dispatch, dated unicago, May iu: •• it. JJ. none mod m cum .city, of small-pox, at 4 this p. m. Will bo burlod this ovoning. Particulars by mail.” This -dis patch was signed “0. 0. Benedict,” and was transmitted by tho Alantlo & Pacific Company. Tho family know no person by tho name of 0. 0. Benedict, but, supposing that ho was somo stranger who had volunteered his aid, thoy con cluded to await tho arrival of tho promised par ticulars by mail. No lottor having been re ceived, oh Friday, Mr. Fred. Kont, a son of tho missing man, started for this city. Ho arrived hero yesterday morning. Ho states that ho has nover known his father to havo any acquaintance with a person named “ 0. 0. Bene dict,” and is strong iu tho bollof that his father has boon pnt out of tbo way. Ho loft homo with couaidornolo money in his possession, and also had about hia pereon a gold watch and a costly broastpiu. Tho investigations made by tbo de tectives yesterday sustain youug Mr. Kont in his bollof. AU tho hotels woro visited, without find ing tho namo of Mr. Kont or that of “ 0. C. Bono diet” upon tho registers. Noitbor does tbo lat tor’s namo appear in tho city directory. Tho wording of tho dispatch is boliovod to signify tlmt thoro has boon foul play. Tho promise of “particulars by mail” is boliovod to havo boon nmdo to hoop off an investigation of tho matter for a few days. But it may bo asked with equal plausabilty, why, if tho man has boon foully doait with, any dispatch would havo boon sent nt all, for its receipt was liablo to bring on an in vestigation of tho matter at onco. It may bo, howovor, that Mr. Kont was put out of tho way in Now York, as ho wont unaccompanied to the cars, or on tho road, and tho dispatch was sent from this city to delude his friends into tho idea that ho arrived hero, and thus thoir search might bo confined to this city. Tho missing man iu woil known among thoatro people of Chicago, and it is hoped tho publication of ibis article may bring out from somo of thorn bis where abouts. Young Mr. Kent will remain iu tho city for somo days, and may bo found at tho John stone House, comer of Madison and Dosplainos streets, or at tho Central Polico Station. TEE SECOND DISAPPEARANCE reported was that of a young man named T. Nolson Dale, who suddenly loft a collogo iu tho northern part of Now Jersey on tho 17th of this month. Ho loft a noto which stated that ho had loft for Chicago, and said that tho Lord was loading him. In tho abstract somo people would say that fora man to prosumo that tho Lord was leodlng him would bo evidence of Insanity, but to suppose that tho Lord leads a man whon ho directs him to go to Chicago would certainly indicate tho pos session of tho best of reason. Whon young Mr. Dalo, who was engaged in tho study of the ology at tho timo ho loft collogo, arrived iu Chi cago,ho wrote a lottor to his friends, who reside In Princeton, N. J. Sinco its receipt nothing has been heard from him. Alarmed by Ids strange actions, his family havo placed tho finding of him iu tbo hands of tho polico. All tho hotels havo heou visited, but Mr. Dalo’s namo has not boon found. Ho is about 27 years of ago. Be fore leaving school ho exhibited no signs of in sanity, and bis sudden disappearance is unac countable. Ho had but a small sum of money with him. THE LKJUOU LAWS. Illow TUcy Were Not ObNorvoil on Sat* nxday Night or Sunday—Justice Kauffman’* Opinion oi tho “ Arrest lug* Clause” iutho 11 O’Glock Ordi nance* Forty-sovcn lager bcor saloon-kcopora on tho North Sido havo been summoned to appear be fore Justice Kauffman, on Monday next, for trial on tho charge of having kept thoir saloons open on Sunday, in violation of tho ordinance. Simi lar notification boa boon given thirteen West Side saloon-koopors, and thoir cases will como before Justice Scully on Saturday. Nino com plaints havo beon entered against saloon-keepers in tho southern part of tho South Division, but tho date of examination has not yet boon defi nitely fixed. After 11 o’clock on Saturday night eighteen violators' of the 11 o'clock ordinance wore ar footed on the West Side. Ouo of them, John Bchroedor by name, was lined £SO by Justice Scully yesterday, and the cases of the others word continued until the 28th, when they will demand a jury trial, and involve the city in con siderable expense. An 11 o’clock violator named William Blitz, who keeps a boor saloon on tho northeast comer of Wilfow and Fremont streets, was brought before Justice Kauffman yesterday. After tho evidence hud boon hoard, and tho counsel for tho defense had relieved hla mind of a vast amount of perilous stuff, tho counsel for tho city, Mr. Lewis, spoko brioliy, claiming that tho law had boon violated, and that thoro was but ouo course for tho Court to pursue, and that' was to fine tho accused. Tho following colloquy then ensued. Justice Kauffman—Are you through with your argument ? Mr. Lewis—l hnvo no moro to say, your Honor. Tho law is plain. Justice Kauffman—l soo yon havonot hoard my former decisions 5 this is tho first time you have boon hero. I boliovo I havo a right to pass an opinion upon this law, or any other. Mr. Lewis—l recognize tho right of tho court to pass upon tho constitutionality of a law, just tho same os tho Supremo Court has that right. Justice Kauffman —Tho first cases that came before mo, when tho 11 o'clock law was passed, wero dismissed because I had received no offi cial notification of tho passage of any such ordinance. I don't say anything against tho laws passed by tho Legislature, or tho Commou Council. When defendants aro convicted of violating those laws, they ought to ho, and must Lo, fined. Tho Common Council has tho right to make laws 5 but this law giving po licemen tho right to go in and drag a man from a respectable business, was not raudoby tho Com mou Council j it was made by Washburn and tho Board of Police Commissioners--Washburn ospo ially—and I don’t recognize it. Ho has no right to mako a law of that kind, and if ho does, I can’t rcapeot it. When violators of the 11 o’clock ordinance ore summoned to appear be fore mo, as aro those who violate tho Sunday law, I will havo no mercy on them, hut other wise my course shall ho as it has boon heretofore. The prisoner is discharged. Tho counsel for tho city entered a protest against tho decision, citing cases where the Su premo Court has decided that policemen can ar rest persons soon violating a city ordinance. Tho Justice made no reply. Shot Her Undo* Daltimobp, Hay 20.—Mrs. Emma MoKoo, who on tho 14th inst. made an unsuccessful attempt to shoot her uncle Oswald Noaok, a wholesale boot and Hhoo upper manufacturer, was more successful to-day. This morning sho obtained a warrant for tho arrest of her uncle, charging him with abusive conduct, and accompanied the offi cer to NouoU’a place of buifluosu, 140 West Bal timore street, to Identify him. Tho ofticor made the arrest, and, au they wore coming down stairs, Mrs. MoKoo drew a doublo-barrolod pistol from pnflor her shawl and discharged both barrels, one shot taking effect in Noaok'u back, the other in tho calf of ids right log. Tho wounds are not necessarily mortal. Mrs. MoKoo was ar rested. THE CHICAGO DAILY TRIBUNE: TUESDAY, MAY 27, 1873. HE WAS MURDERED, Tho Bond Man Found on West Chicago Avoimo n Viellm of Foul Flay. Startling Testimony Adduced at the Inquest Yesterday. Tho inquest on tho body of tho man found on West Chicago avomio, last Wednesday morn ing, was resumed and concluded at tho Ooanly- UospUal yesterday forenoon. As will bo soon from tho evidence below, Dr. Emmons, at his own request, was recalled, and, to tho surprise of everybody, produced a ball, which ho testi fied was taken from tho body last Saturday. This statement wan corroborated by that of Dra. Chono wlth and Strong, who wore both present when tho ball was found, tho latter, indeed, testifying that ho himself, took it out of the body. Tbodlscovory, with tho other evidence elicited, completely does away with tho accident theory advanced by Do tootivo Tyrrell, and givoa to tbo mystery tho horrible character in which it was first por trayed. It Is now certainly known that tho man was 'the victim of a midnight murder. Tho identity of the man is still Vinrovcalod, and tho ferreting out of tho Dondoritos- who per petrated tho bloody not is loft \yith tho authorities. What will they do about it? Tho case should not ho buried with tho subject. Exory cluo should bo thoroughly worked up, Murdor will not out of Itself. Tho accident theory' was plausible, hut there is now positive proof that its advocates wore mistaken. Tho following was tbo ovidoucogivon, and tho verdict of tbo jury : Juiiu riouuL totiunoa ttiat bo had soon tho body In tho Morguo last Monday morning, at (J:3U o’clock, on West Chicago avonno, uoar tho Whis ky Point road. Witness was going to his work in tho Northwestern Hallway ronndhouso. There was no ouo olso about at tho time. Tho vest was wide open; it was not buttoned up. Tho coat was also open. Tho shirts *oro all closed. Tho pants pockot on tho loft side was pulled out, Mr. Kulp, wit ness* neighbor, enmo up whon ho called him; they did not touch tho body; there was a glovo on tho right bund ; there was no bat or cap near tho body; saw nothing olso lying about tbo body. Thoro woro no indications of a strug gle on tho ground about tbo body. Patrick I>. Tyrrell testified that ho is a detec tive. Last Wednesday at 4p. m., Superintend ent Washburn instructed him to go with Capt. Lull and view tho spot whore tiro deceased lay; ho wont, and found it was at tho junction of Chicago uvonuo and Whisky Point road ; they found somo blood; a largo pool of blood was south of tho wngon-traclr on Chicago avonuo. [Witness hero described tho spot by a diagram.] Tho small pool of blood covered tho mark of a horso’s hoof; thoro wore small drops of blood extending in a half circle from tho largo pool to tho small one. Tho body had boon removed at 8 a. m. Witness saw it in tho Morguo eight hours afterward. Wit ness looked around for weapons and somo tracks loading from tho body, but could find nono. Tho ground is a hard clay. Ho inquired all about tho neighborhood, but could find no ono except tho two men, Bohdn and Sbopko, iu tho Itmo-kilu, that know deceased. Ho was satisfied that deceased was tho man who had boon seen about tbo lirao-kiln by the above-named parties. Could find no footprints about tbo body. Camo down to tho Morguo on Thursday morning and oxnmiuod tho body: thoro woro no indica tions that deceased lind boon dragged in tho mud; ho observed tbo cuts over tho right oyo and on tho back of tho head. Observed no holes in tho shirts/ after a thorough examination. Witness produced the shirts, and endeavored to show by thorn that thoro woro no bullet holes in thorn. Ho had fired a No. 1 Smith & Wesson pistol throe times through tho shirts and vest, and showed to tho jury. Thoro was nothing to indicate that a shat had boon fired at close quarters. Did not believe tho hole in deceased's breast was caused by a bullet; unless the bullet was found, ho would not holiovo deceased had been shot. Behoved deceased had crawled around tho ground, and loft tho blood-marks ns mentioned above. Dr. Emmons, sworn : Thoro appears to bo a question about tbo gunshot wound, and I wish to say something about it. On Saturday fore noon, in company with Drs.' Oheuowith and Strong, I mdfto a moro careful examination with a view to finding tho ball, and found- this bullet [hero ho produced a small conical bull, which created a profound sensation] imbedded in tho muscles of tho back, about two inches from tho spiuo, below tho last rib. Tho course of tho ball corresponded with tho direction of tlio probo, as given in my previous ovidonco. Tho ball, no doubt, possod through tho sploon, which had boon broken down by au old chronic disease. Now gunshot wounds niftko a slight discoloration on tho outside, as was tho caso in this instance. This wound was a fatal ouo, but might havo boon produced aftor tho circulation hud stopped. Tho ball had taken a direct course, and lodged in tho mus cles. In my opinion this wound was a recent ono. Had tho hall been in tho body a long timo it would havo hccomo iuoisted; tho ball produced iu not incistod. Tho wounds iu tho head would not havo permittod a man to havo crawled about. Dr. Strong, llosidont Physician at tho County Hospital, gave ovidonco corroborating that of Dr. Emmons, and stated that ho hud taken out tho bull himsolf. Dr. Chouowith made a statement to tho offcct that ho was present when Dr. Emmons produc ed tlio ball in tho Morguo. Mr. Headman saw Dr. Strong tako tho ball out. After a short deliberation, tho jury returned tho following verdict; Wo, tho jury, flml that the unknown man now lying at tho Morguo camo to hie death on the night of thu 20th, or tho morning of tho Slut of May, 1873, from compression of tho brain, aa u re»ult of a fracture of the skull, muUo by Home blunt instrument In thohandH of a person or pcmoiiH unknown to the jury, Tho Jury also End that deceased had received a gunshot wound iu Lis left breast, which would havo been sutUclont to have caused death. No cluo has boon found that would load to tho identification of tho body or to tho murderers. PERSONAL, 0. Benny, of London, England, is at tho West Bide Briggs House. D. I.

St, I,out* {May 20) Correspondence (\ftho Xctn York Sun, Congrous having appropriated $4,000.000 for tho erection of a now custom-house in this city, thoro has boon n grand rush for tho spoils. A half million has already boon spent for tho lot on which to nut tho building. Two Idnds of stone are to ho used in Us construction. Tho contract for tho upper stone work has boon given to Buydor & Brown, tho owners of granite quarries out on tho Iron Mountain Railroad. This Brown is our old friend Grata, ox- Souator and ox-candidato for tho Vico- ITosidoucy. It is understood that Mr. Orvil Grant, tho brother of tho President, has boon made a clerk of this granite company at a salary of 85,000 a year, and it is assorted that in addition to this sum ho Is to receive 10 per cent of tho contract prico. Orvil was in tiio city on a lark somo two weeks ago, and is said to liavo boon unusually leaky. I have good authority for saying that ho imparted tho story of his good luck to two or throo of his old cronies, who proved as leaky as Orvil himself. Somo think that the' President’s recent visit was partly on account of this report. If ho has crushed tho business, nobody is aware of it. Orvil is in good spirits, olid looks liko a man who has a big tiling within easy grasp. Thoro is no doubt but what Mr. Charles W. Ford, Collector of Internal Bovonuo hero, and General Agent of tho United States Express Company, has boon offered tho Secretaryship of tho Interior. It is or was tho intention of tho President to place Delano in lUchardaon’s place as Secretary of tho Treasury, and to put Ford in Delano’s place. Ford is a wealthy bachelor, and has a fair reputation. Ho was formerly one of Grant’s most intimate friends. Somo of tho Ito publlcaus hero believe that Grant has abandoned tho idea of placing Ford in tho Interior Depart ment, but tho shrewd ones say that tho thing is bouud to come in tho long run. When ques tioned closely, Ford declares that ho will decline tho office. Provision has boon made for another relative of. tho President. His name is W. B. W. Bar nard. Ho married one of tho Bouts, and was made Inspector of National Banks for this dis trict, which includes Illinois, Missouri, and other States. • TUo St* Paul *ctn<l Northwestern *Con- solldntkoit. From the Milwaukee Fcue, Mat/ 25. If wo have got hold of tho right end of tho rumors which havo reached and are reaching ns, tho plan to pool tho earnings or effect a virtual consolidation of tho St. Paul and Northwestern Hoads is likely to fall through, or has fallen through. At least, it has not boon perfected, and resolutely hangs tiro. As far as wo can loam tho facts, they aroto tho effect that, subse quent to tho railroad light iu tho Legislature last winter, tho parties who had previously bought tho common stock of tho Northwestern Road, and who worb lighting tho St. Paul laud-grant proposition, wont into tho market, and quietly bought up largo quantities, if not nearly all, of tho St. Paul common stock, within a view to tho consolidating tho roads. As tho owners of tho stock, they had sufficient inlluonco with tho Eastern Directors of tho St. Paul Com pany to defeat tho acceptance of tho laud-grant, and to introduce tho proposition for pooling earnings, when they found that tho laws of Wisconsin prohibit consolidation. Tho pool ing proposition awaited somo formalities before it was Anally to go into opera tion, when tho hostile public senti ment of tbo State reached tho oars of tho now owners of the common stock, and they begun to comprehend that they wore going toofostuud too far. Wo do not know that tills is tho true outline of tho facto. But wo are inclined to think that a fear of adverse legislation iu this Btnto, growing out of tho existing excitement against railroads, which Ims boon greatly in creased by tho refusal to build tho laud-graut linos, has had tho effect to defeat the specula tion alter it progressed a considerable distance toward completion.
