tlio fuels of the case.
Ellshn II. Wfc'Bsi. Sr., diotl lu 1801,
leaving a widow, who afterward ro
married, and a son, Klislm II, Bitfcs,
Jr. At thu Umc,ho owned tho Exchaugo
Block, Including tho Hotel and store,
beside other valuablo property, lly
his will ho directed that tho Mansion
Houso and Excliango Block, In tho
event ofhls widow's death or roinar-
rlngo, should go to his son, but that ho
"should not sell or nllcnato the same,
as it was intended ho should have a life
'Interest only with remainder over to
his heirs in feo," and said Ellsha was
not to hfcvo possession until his twenty
second year. Tho will also directs that
ir tho soa should die without heirs, or
before ho becomes twonty-two yeara
old, tho property was to bo divided be
tween tha testator's sisters or their
heirs, and St. Paul's Church at Blooms
burg. E. II. Biggs, Jr., sold tho "Mansion
Houao" to C. II. Docbler, and then tho
question camo up whether Biggs had a
llfo estate or a feo In tho land. Judge
Elwoll decided that under tho will ho
had such title to tho property as would
enable him to comply with the article
of agreement, and that Biggs should
tender Doebler a deed docking any
oa tall that might exist. From this de
rision both parties appealed to tho Su
premo Court, nnd on Monday last it
nftlrmod the decree of the Court below,
Judge Sliarswood delivering tho opin
ion ot tho Court. This in effect gives
Biggs the entire disposition of tho prop
erty. deary's Veto Message
Our cotemporary, singularly enough,
not only failed to publish Geary's An
nual and Inaugural Addresses, but fails
oven to alludo to his recent Important
veto of tho Metropolitan Police Bill.
As tho Republican is In no sense a news-
paper, howovor, that ,may account for
Its neglect of tho Governor whom it
aided to elect.
For tho benefit of our Democratic, as
well as our Republican readers, woglvo
Ihomcssago cntlro, and must concede
that It Is one of tho ablest and most con
clusive public documents wo havo over
road. It has tho ring of tho true metal
in it, and shows that Geary's early Dem
ocratic education was not entirely lost
Our readers should peruse It carefully,
for its doctrine Is good and its positions
In short, wo havo deliberately tonio
to tlio conclusion that tho Governor's
legs "are not so full of bullet holes" as

In saying, that when an "Honorable"

"honesty Is tho best policy when you
can make anythlng.but when you can't
it Is not worth a cuss," he Is just a trl

Wo clip the followlug from tho Utah
Reporter of January 27th. Dr. Taggart
is well known In llloomsburg, having
been hero lu business for a number of
years. Things havo progressed with
tho Dr. slnco ho left. Tho Reporter
Last Monday evening, about Oo'clock,
Dr. John P. Taggart, United States As
sessor for this Territory, was nttnckeil
lu Salt Lako City by threo men, "ono of
wiioni birui-K nun wiin a mine or dag
ger, evidently determined to take his
llfo at a blow. Tho cowardly attack
took placo a few yards from tho Doctor's
residence, whence ho had Just emerged,
and, though tho night was qulto dark
at tho timo, ho fortunately saw tho up
lifted hand and weapon of tho principal
assailant In timo to parry tin blow with
his left arm. Quickly placing himself
in an imiuuio oi ucjcncc, lie turned
towards tho cowardly ruffians, but only
to seo them retreat in tho darkness.
Thoy had fulfilled tho order of the
church In making, as they thought, n
stiro nnd certain blow at their victim
and then lied to their master with tho
news. Tho doctor received tho weapon
on his arm, it having passed through
his clothing and hit a slight but ugly
ilesh wouild near tho wrist. Wo will
not underlaku to comment upon the
hellish treachery of such acts as tho
above. It Is tho grand trait of Mor.
monism, and palliates Itself In thocrlm
bon dogma of "blood atonement." In
this particular cate. however, wo will
do Brlgham Young and his myrmidons
thO justice to sav that thov hud already
given Dr. Taggart frcquout notice that
it would bo mr his health to "drlvu
slow" in his duties as Assessor. But
tho doctor being a now kind of man for
Salt Lako City, was not ufrald to do his
work well. Tho assessment lattdv iniulo
by him ou the so-called church property
broko tho camel's back. Slnco thou tho
hounds of Young havo been thirsting
for tho blood of that bravo jnd honest
Supreme Court Decision.
Thu important opinion dell verd by Chief
Justice Chasolu tho SupromeCourt of tho
United States, relatlvo to Legal Tenders,
to which allusion was made In our ed
Itoral columns last week, was unfortu
atly omitted In making up tho paper,
Wo print It this woek, as It a Is muttor
of great importance.
Governor's Veto of tho Metropol
itan jpoiico Bill.
Gov. Geary yesterday sent to tho Sen.
nto tho following message, vetoing tho
Metropolitan Police Bllli
7b the Senate anil Jlouse of Iteprescnla
lives of the" Commonwealth of Penn
O UNTt.H.M UN : Having carefully con-
Hldeml Seniilu bill No. 2!), entltled,"An
act to provide for tho appointment of a
Metropolitan Pollco for tho city of
Phlladclphla,"audalthough actuated by
a sincere- dcslru to conform my action
In regard to It to that oftho General As
sembly, I am constrained to withhold
tho Executive sanction, and proceed to
tho constitutional duty of giving my
reasons for disapproving.
In tho first placo tho title Is not lu
conformity with tho eight section of tho
Eleventh Articlo of tho Constitution,
which declares that "no bill shall bo
passed by tho legislature, containing
moro than ouu subject, which shall bo
clearly expressed in tho title." As 1
read tho bill ono of Its most important
features is tho election of 11 vo police com
inlssloners ; aud yet this Idea Is neith
er clearly expressed, nor oven remote
ly Indicated by tho title.
Another objection to tho bill is that
tho wholo sixteen pages aro Jumbled
together Into ono section. It Is usual
and proper to divide bills of such length
Into sections, each embracing some
marked features anil to havo thu sec
tions arranged according to some natur
al order. Although this is only a mat
ter of form, I am nwaro of no good rea
son for this departuro from usage, and
utter dlsregurd of all sound precedent.
Much has been said about thu charac
ter and Inefficiency of tho pollco of Phil
adelphia ; and I am fully persuaded
many of them uro not such us tho good
order of theclly demands. But whilst
this Is an acknowledged evil, uud a
proper subject for legislative considera
tion, I more than doubt tho wisdom of
tho remedy proposed by this bill. It
is manifest, however, that it is a most
important one, and that it contemplates
an entire revolution in this branch of
tho city government.
Tho constitutional authority of the
legislature, In a peilod of profound
peace, to create a power such as is con
templated by the "Metropolitan Police
Bill" to operato over tho wholo State.or
any part thereof, is a question of great
magnitude, und one which, under a re
publican form of government, deserves
serious consideration, as It involves in
herent and Indefeasible rights aud other
established for tho benefit aud happl
ncss of tho people.
Tho bill under consideration is fraught
Willi momentous consequences to the
citizens of Philadelphia and of tho
State. And tho position that the power
can bo taken away from so largo a por
tion of tho people of Pennsylvania,
without their consent, for a period of
years, alid lodged in tho hands of six
persons, is to mo extraordinary, unten
able ami in Violation of thesplrit, mean
ing aud Intent of the first and second
sections of tho Twelfth Articlo of the
Constitution. Tlio second section de
clares "that all power is inherent in the
people, and all free governments aro
founded on their authority, mid institu
ted for their peace, safety and happi
ness." Tho constitution sets forth, in
such plain and unequivocal terms, the
principles upon which a republican
government shall be conducted that
comment would bo supcriluous, and
would weaken rather than strengthen
If thcro exists any right or authority
in tho legislature to concentrate power
In a few meu for a term of years, then
it must bo admitted that they have tho
right to do it for any number of years,
or to make It a perpetuity.
To recognize tho right to legislate
thus specially for ono city is virtually
to acknowledge that tho legislature has
authority to mako similar enactments
in every other city, borough, village,
county and township within tho State;
and that by thu same reasoning Con
gress possebSes liko power to legislate
for the different States, enact a graud
Metropolitan Pollco Bill, and secure
plenary executive, legislative and judi
cial powers lu the hands of a few per
sons, and thus exclude tho luiissesofthe
peoplo from all participation in tho
government of themselves. I nrust con
fess that lam enlliely unprepared to
sanction any legislation so mischievous
in its tendencies, and so anti-republic-an
in Its character, and which is calcu
lated to uproot and destroy tho dearest
principles aud privileges oftho people,
which underlie the Institutions of our
well regulated Commonwealth. Justice
and tho dictates of sound public policy
requlro that tho citizens of every polit
ical and corporate division, however
grcnt or small, should bo permitted, Us
an inherent right of self government
without "officious intermeddling" from
any quarter, to manago their own local
affairs In their own way, through oftl
cors selected ut tho ballot-box by them
selves. In remarking upon this subject I
have elsewhere said, "The great princi
ple, then, upon which our fieo Institu
tions rest is tho unqualified uud abso-
lutouoverelgnty oftho people; and con
stituting, as that principle does, tho
most positive and ossctitlal featuro in
tlio great charterbf our liberties, so It
1s better calculated than any other to
give clovatlon to our hopes and dignity
to our actions. So long us tho people
feel that tho power to elect their own
officers and administer their own gov
ernment abides in them, so long will
they bo Impressed with that sense of
security and of dignity which must
over spring from tho consciousness that
they ho'd within their own hands a
remedy for overy political ovil, a cor
rection for every governmental ubuso
ami usurpation, this principle must
bo upheld uud maintained at all haz
ards and overy sacrifice maintained lu
nil thy power uud fullness lu all thu
breadth and depth of Its utmost ctiimc
ity and signification. It Is not sufficient
that it bo acknowledged as a mere ab
straction, or theory, or doctrine, but as
a practical, substantial, living reality,
vital In ovory part."
Tho city of Philadelphia lu order to
pay tho necessary expenses of her gov
eminent, of her now, important uud
extended improvements, und tho Inter
est on her Immense debt (now greater
than that of the Commonwealth) Is not
In u condition. to Increase her liabilities,
and ir sno noes, it ought to do with n
perfect understanding for what purpose
und to what amount.
Tho salary of thu mayor, who now
performs all tlio function that aro pro
posed to bo placed In tho hands of this
board of pollco couiinlfsloncie, Is four
thousand dollars, while tho sahirle.4 or
lli'o six commissioners, nt threo thous
and dollars each, pno clerk at fifteen
nuncireu dollars nnd one at ono thous
and dollars, a committing maghjtrato at
tho Central Station, suy threq thousand
dollars, and a clerk at fifteen hundred,
and that of thu examining physician,
threo thousand dollars, amount to thu
sum of twenty.elght thousand dollars,
to which may bo added rent, stationery
printing uud Incidentals, at least twenty-two
thousand dollars luore, making
in all tho sum of fifty thousand dollars
for salaries and oxpenses for tho official
Tho bill says: "Tho said board shall
have entire control of all tlio police of
tho city, aud shall havo authority to In
crease tlio forco of patrolmen, should
thoy deem thosamo necessary; and It Is
hereby miido tho duty of tho select and
common council to appropriate suffi
cient moneys to meet tho expenses of
board and said forco."
This Is In overy respect tho most per.
feet surrender of plenary powers of tho
many to the few that I havo ovor wit
nessed. Absolute control oftho police,
power to lucreaso tho number at their
pleasure, to fix tho wages at any llgure,
without being subject to any check or
supervision from any force 1 Such
powers aro not exercised by tho Auto;
crat of Russia. Tho city councils nnd
the peoplo seem to bo entirely Ignored
by the bill, except that "the board shall
from timo to time, submit to thu coun
cils their estimates of the sunn requir
ed for the payment of official salaries
and expenses, and for the maintenance
of thu pollco force. There is no check
or audit prescribed, and no matter what
may be thu sum required, thu councils
must provide und appropriate tho
amount, und tho peoplo, already over
burdened, must meet largely Increased
taxation to supply the councils with
the necessary means to satisfy tho de
mands of thu board. And alter paying
thu fifty thousand dollars before men
Honed to set this''Trnjaii horse"upon its
legs, anil introduce it into Philadelphia,
no ono can estimate thu increased expen
ses, and no ono is to be responsible for tho
damages that may occur after Its ma
chluery has been fully set In operation.
The police forco Isalso to bo put upon
a war fooling. Every applicant Is to
be submitted to an examination by
properly qualified physician." and if
not found entire) competent and under
the age of forty-Jive years, lie must bo
rejected. Why shall trusty, able-bodied
and experienced polico officers bo ox
eluded from tho force, without regard
to past services or present efficiency,
merely becauso they aro over forty-fivo
years of ago? It is probably tho first
lime in the history of tho Stato that a
man in civil life, who is otherwise suit
able in overy respect, shall bo proscrib
ed when he may havo served his coun
try faithfully lu her armies aud attained
tho ago of forty-tlvo years. This Is
monstrous Injustice, uud an ostracism
which I trust will never meet the sanc
tion of, or bo tolerated by, a bravo and
I have not had time to call your at
tciitlou to the provisions of this bill as
fully us I could have desired, but
think I havo pointed out sufficient
wrongs, in this attempt to creato such a
force, appointed by a concentration of
tho peoplo's power into tho hands of a
fow men, chosen by legislatoro from
every part of tho State, who aro fully
ussured- that their own constituents
would not submit to any sucli iulllction
of absolute government und taxation
upon themselves for a single moment,
This is the kind of legislation which
under pretence of securing thu peace
creates discontent, dissatisfaction and
disturbance. It arouses lu thu bosom
of every man who knows his own
Inherent rights tho most determined oi
position, and frequently tho most un
compromising hostility to every move
ment by which he perceives his liberty
is abridged, aud makes him wago a
warfare against all whom ho conceives
to bo tho enemies of liberty, whether
open or concealed.
A republican government cannot long
exist under partial and unequal laws,
Aud to perpetuate this republic with all
the blessings which cluster around it
the State Legislature must enact laws
bearing aliko upon nil, without preju
dice or partiality.
A majority in tho Slate undertaking
to legislate to perpetuate its power by
the passage of laws unequal, unjust and
oppressive tuward thu minority, Is not
republican In furin nor democratic In
principle, uud must .soon sink Into im
1-or theso uud other reason i I cannot
give the executive sajictioti to this or
uuy other act which has a tendency to
take Iroiu tho people any portion
their Inherent rights. Thu election of
every local officer charged with the
duties of executive authority, or wltl
thu execution of tho Inws, mIiouIi! bo
suumiiieu to it inreci popular voto ;
and I can seo no reason why tho peoplo
of Philadelphia should bo made an ex
ception to this rulo, aud bo deprived of
tho right of choosing by their own votes
those who shall constitute the comml
sioners of police, us well us who shall
bo tholr mayor, seloct and common
council, or their representatives In tho
It Is an elementary axiom that every
government should havo soino respon
hlblohead; and In a republican gov
ernmont that responsibility nhould bo
to tho people, tho source of all political
Heretofore tho mayor of Philadelnhin
lias occupied this position of trust and
responsibility. To him tlio peqdo
looueu.auu nan a right to look, for tho
proper execution of tho laws and tho
preservation of tho peaco and good
order oftho city. If ho h. h failed to
meet their Just expectations, they havo
their remedy at tlio ballot-box ; aud It i
fair to presume they will avail them
selves of It at tho first lawful oppoi tun
lty. Would it improve tho exlstlii''
condition of things to divide this ro
spouslbllity among six commissioners
of whom tho mayor would bo but tine?
To whom would thoy Irresponsible for
a proper discharge of duty ? Hardly to
mo legislature ortho wholo Stato, which
changes annually. Not to th
lied electors of tho city for thoy did not
eieci mem uuu tanuot, under tho ma
clilnery ol tho bill, chooso u majority o
muir successors lor tnrfo years, nor u
new board for Ave years. Divided ro
eponslblllty in government Unpolitical
heresy, and nearly related to no respon.
siblllty. What kind ofau army would
mat no winch had mx commanding olll
tors, all of equal rank? And what sort
of a Stato administration would that bo
emanating from bix Governors, all of
Kiuul power and authority ? Aud what
good could bo expected of that pollco
organization which Is to bo governed by
six equal and irresponsible commis
sioners? If tho people of Philadelphia deslro a
Metropolitan Police Bill let thoeoninils-
sinners bo of their own choosing, nl the
allol-hox. Let them ho "oftho people,
for tho peoplo nnd by tho people."
To my mind those objections aro
Insuporablc, and tho bill Is therefore
returned for further consideration.
