Jny Gould's Intuit purchases turn
out In have been a judge of the New
Yoik supreme court nnd the attorney
general of the state. The story of the
transactions which resulted in these
disgraceful acquisitions is told with
great detail by the Now York WHIM ,
the most fearless and enterprising nf
the metropolitan journnln , which b >
its exposure of great public evils , in
cluding the Tweed ring and the star
route frnudn , has well earned the con
fidence of the rending public.
Knrly last spring Gould cast his eye
: > n the three elevated railroad com
panies in New Yoiktlio Metropolitan ,
New York nnd the Manhattan , the
last of which had leased the other two
nnd guaranteed JO per cent , dividends
upon their stocks. Following out his
univorHnl policy , which is to wreck a
propcnly before buying it , in
order to secure it cheaply ,
Gould laid his plans to destroy
confidence in elevated securities , and
bear the stock upon the market.
Seven months ago the attack on Man
hattan began by Attorney-General
Ward's bringing milt in the name of
the people of New York to li.ivo the
charter of thu Minhiittan annulled on
the ground that its stock wai mostly
water , Unit it owned no road , and
that it it didn't and couldn't pay its
tnxcH , much less its othorn obligations.
The gionnda for the miil were true
enough , and if Mr. Ward had fought
it out , he would have done a public
service. Ho soon transferred the case
from Judge. Donohuu'a court to Judge
NVestbrook's and modified its form to
n suit to plnco the company in insol
vency. He asked for receivers , and
in July Judge Westbrook wont to
Now York , nnd nt n hearing in a pri
vate olllcu appointed John F. Dillon
nnd Amos Lawrence Hopkins receiv
ers , one Gould's lawyer nnd the
other vice-president of the Wnbaah
railroad. In the meantime , other
suitfl had boon inntitutod against the
other two companies , and their stocks
wore very much depressed. The Me
tropolitan wont into Gould's hands
July 8 , at which time it was discov
ered that the Now York was entirely
in Mr. Field' * control.
A concerted attack wax now made by
Jie entire Gould clique on Manhnttnn
stock. Mis organ , thu Jf'orM , was
running it down as worthless nnd
writing editoiial leaders on the cer-
ainty of its being wiped out by thu
courts. The gnmo was nearly played
'or Manhattan declined below 20 nnd
iia n drug in the market nt that fig
ure. Again Judge Westbrook'n ser
vices were called into requisition. Ho
wna bfougt in from the country to
Jny Gould's privntu ollico in the West
ern Union building in September to
authorize the issue of receivers' cer
tificates for 81,000,000. The World
in printing the news aaid that the
certificates would bo worthies ; ) , ax no
body would buy them , nnd Mr. Gould
himself , nn director of the Metropoli
tan , and therefore acquainted with the
affairs of the Manhattan , made affi
davit that the latter company wns
"hopelessly and irretrievably insol
vent. " Largo blocks of Manhattan
stock were thrown by the frightened
shareholders upon the market and
were quickly snnppod up on the quiet
by Gould.
Thu limo had now come for
the cloning act and on the
21st of October Judge Wontbrook re
paired again to Gould's ollico and
read his decision denying the suit oi
thu Now York elovntod ugainst the
Manhattan to recover iln property.
Three days later ho telegraphed from
Kingston nn order terminating the
receivership. Now the Manhattan
stock began to recover , and when the
annual meeting was hold n fortnight
later , the Gould party sailed into the
direction of this "hopelessly and irre
trievably insolvent" cfmccrn , and the
stock stood at 55. The profit by this
disgraceful performance cannot have
boon lean than $2,000,000 , supposing
the advance in the 70,000 shares to
have been ! ! 5 per cent.
Thu exposure of this high handed
proceeding is creating confusion in the
Gould camp , and the criminals arc
vninly attempting to explain away the
proofs which have accumulated against
tliem. Public opinion is aroused on
the subject , and public journals are
holding up the coso as the strongest
possible argument for state regulation
and restrictions of thu corporations.
The Springfield Jtepublicau says in its
usual terse sty 10 :
"Wo are not called upon to waste
any sympathy with the victims in
these stock jobbing operations ,
although them are always likely to
be some who are innocent , but the
public are directly interested in the
amount which can bo extorted from
them in fares to pay dividends on
slocks and debts thus illegitimately
inflated and wrom-fully acquired , and
they are still more vitally interested
in the nmniior in which judges , pros-
ccuting ollicew and public journals
can bo used to further nefarious ends. "

The Nebraska Ktnto Farmers' al
liance meets nt Ilnating on the 2fith
of the present month , in special ses
sion. It in the highest impoitanco
that the attendance should not only
bo largo but representative. Antimonopoly -
monopoly sentiment in Nebnwkn is
not only rnpidly growing , but it is
cryslah/ing withcqualrapidily. | Kvory
farmer who hns felt the iron hands of
the Nebraska monopolies should nt
once connect himself with the nearest
nllianco. Wherever possible now
bodies should bo organized in time to
obtain representation ft the Hustings
meeting. JndicAtions point to n Inrge
enthusiastic and practical gathering of
Nebraska producers who will discu&s
questions of the highest importance
to thu future welfare of the taxpaying -
paying citizens in thin stnte. A
number of the county alliances have
already voiced tlio sentiment of their
mumbors and tlio nUite in ringing
resolutions whoso tone will strike the
key note for the Hustings mooting ,
lint it is highly important tlmt there
should bu the fullest discussion of the
subjects which will ongugo the atten
tion of the atnto alliance and to thin
end every csuiity and precinct in thu
Btnte ought to bu represented at
Nubrnnka farmers are a rending nnd
thinking class. Thny have \ \ decided
opinion on the anti-monopoly ques
tion , and an opportunity is now nx-
tendcd them to make it known. The
Biuto farmers alliance has extended n
cordial invitation to all membcra of
alliances to attend the coming mealing
at Hastings and assist the delibera
tions and conclusions of the delegates
by their presence and suggestions. It
is to bo hoped that hundreds will
avail themselves of this invitation.
Lot there be such a gathering of
bone and sinaw of this agricultuial
state as has never boon known
before in its history. The time has
como whan the favor currying politi-
ticinns of Nebraska , who are endeav
oring to straddle the anti-monopoly
qucntion , Hhould be made to under
stand the real sentiment of thu Slate
on this all-important issuo. Thu
wind is blowing strongly , nnd if the
vuno is in good condition , the direc
tion cannot bu mistaken. TIIK BKK
appeals to the subordinate alliances
throughout thu state to make the
coining meeting of Nebraska farmers
n grand success. And this can bu
clone by an interest in the movement
which allows itself in large attendance
of ciirnost and united producers.
TIIK tomahawk of Tammany is again
swinging madly in the air and John
Kelly has the floor. At the close of
the last election Mr. Tilden and hit
friends in Now York wore rejoicingly
proclaiming that they had cariied
both branches of the legislature nnd
would control the organization. Of
course they expected to provide places
for their frionda of the Tildon fac
tion and gixvo Tammany hall the cold
shoulder. It now turns out that they
will bo unable to effect an organiza
tion against the republicans without
the aid of Tammany hall , and this
assistance is refused on any other
ground than a full surrender to Mr.
John Kelly. That able political chief
tain has donned his war paint , and
liia friends have pasuod a series of
resolutions pledging themselves not
to enter into a democratic caucus.
Mr. Kelly , who waa kicked out of the
aat democratic convention , now
lold.s four neon , and Mr. Tilden
must cither call his hand and pay the
atake.i or take the consequences , The
World advises the Tilden democrats
.o pay no attention to Tammany but
o lot matters take their course and ai
.his advice ia likely to pi o vail thu
prospects for a piolongnd dead lock in
the legislature are unusually good
while Mr. Kelly prancci around thu
ring and executes Home of his most
soul stirring war whoops.
TIIK. editor of thu Boston Journal
is virtuously indignant , and gives way
lo the feelings as follows : "Clara
Louisa Kellogg sang about 81)000
worth to the inmates of the Nebraska
penitentiary thu other day , and asked
nothing for it. A man who had
never stolen anything or made love to
another man's horse would have to
pay 82 to hear bur. About the only
man who gota loft nowadays , and haste
to pay a big price for all the fun he
lias is thu honest , respectable , hard
working citizen. " Wo have no doubt
that if the editor of the Huston Jour
mil had boon in Nebraska , ho would
have been placed in a position whore
ho could have heard Clara for
Mr. JiiHttco Hunt.

Mr. Justice Hunt of thu I'nitod
States supreme court was appointed
on the llth of December , 18"y. Ho
wns stricken with paralysis on the -4th
of January , 1879 , and oinco that day
has taken no part in the decision of
cases ooining before thu court. The
attack wua so severe that his resump
tion of judicial duties was not ex
pected at the outset , ami is not ex
pected now. His term of actual
service upon thu bench was lean than
live years and one month. A statute
of the United States is as follows ;
"Whim any judge of any coutt of the
United States leaignshis ollico , after
having held hm commission as
such at least JO years , and Imvitit ;
attained the ngo of 70 years , ho shall
during thu residue of his natural life
rceoivo the came Halary which WUH by
law pnynblo to him nt the time of his
resignation. " The present salary of
nsBocialo justices of the supreme court' '
ia $10,000 n yenr , paynblo monthly.
Justice Hunt in already 70 years of
iigo , but in order to entitle himaolf to
resisjn and draw a salary of $10,000 a
yenr for the rest of his life , he must
hold on to his commission until
December 1 1 , 188IJ. This would make
almost five yearn of incapacity , with
the salary legally paynblo during
nil of thin time , Meanwhile the
court is overburdened with work and
unable to keep up with thu business
which comes before it , nnd congress is
under the necessity of coiifliderini ;
schemes far its relief. There is a
loud call for the immediate resigna
tion of Justice Hunt , Unless such
resignation is sent in soon , we sug
gest that congress consider the expe
diency of changing the law , by mak
ing ton ycnts of actual judicial service
necessary in order to entitle a judge
to a retiring pension. The law should
not hold out to n judge the expecta
tions of n pension nn n temptation to
continue in ollico for live yenra after
ho becomea incapacitated for service.

The Railway Age expresses fear
that the railway corporations nrc to
bu annoyed and attacked by hostile
legislation in the state legislatures nial
in congress.
For railway men to charge the
American people with unreasonable
hostility to the railroads is not only
wildly nbfiurd but the basest ingrati
tude. The people , through their
legislatures and through congress ,
have displayed the most extraordinary
generosity towards the railroads over
since thu first one was built in this
country. It ia surely about time that
the people began to look after their
own interests. In doing so they are
not to be ranked as the enemies of the
railways. None batter understand
the value of these u'nmt highways of
travel nnd commerce than those
who have studied their opera
tions and comprehend also the dangers
threatened by leaving the corporations
managing them unbridled by suitable
checks and restrictions. People who
believe iu imposing such checks are
not to bo ranked as anti-railroad men.
They are no more in truth not so
much anti-railroad as the great rail
way kings whoao administration of
these vast interests has kindled the
feeling that promises to readjust by
suitable legislation the relations be
tween the people am1 the railroads.
