A large number of tracts of land were at'
veitised and sold for taxes at the Com
House last Monday by county Treasuier
Hwepfictiheiser. On the list were a number
of properties on which the taxes were mi
paid for 1877, but the lauds have since bei n
sold by the Sheriff. The taxes were assessed
In tbu name of the person who was sold out
and the question has arisen as to the effect
of a judicial sale upon the lien for taxes re
turned. It H somewhat singular that in so
many years sinco the passage of the act un
der which these sales arc teld, the question
has never been decided by the Supreme
Court. It is claimed by some, as the land
have been sold by tho Sheriff sinco tho taxes
were levied, that this lias wiped out all
claims for taxes against the property. It still
stands as a debt against him who was the
owner at tho time the levy was made,but the
claim upon the properly is lost. On the olu
it hand it is contended that the land is to b
hel l responsible lor the taxes whoever th
owner may be. It is eyident that if the taxes
were lost so tar as tho lard is concerned when
it was sold by the Sheriff, tbo purchaser o
such land at a Treasurer's sale would get a
worthless ded,and be out of pocVet just th
amount ho paid for the land. The question
has been raised in Montour county by a bill
in equity (.raying for an injunction to res
train the treasurer and commissioners from
selling certain tracts assessed prior to th
Sheriffs sale of the Fame tracts. It will
probably be decided in a few months, and
will be watched with interest.
The fact that the question has never been
presented to tho Supreme Court is probably

advertised at tax sale most everybody pro
fera to pay the taxes rather than to run the
risk ot having a cloud upon his title, or go
into expensive litigation to prevent the land
from being sold. It has always been the
practice here and olswhero to sell such lane's
foi unpaid taxes. Perhaps that prac
tico will cease after the Supreme Court have
passed upon the question. There seems to
be no good reason why the taxes should be a
lien upon the land, while mortgages, judg

as this suit is settled.

"The first I ever heard of the Credit Mo

date when Georgo Francis Train called on
me mid fald he wss organizing a company
to be known as the Credit Mobiller of Araer
Icfljtobo formed on the model of the Credit
Mobiller of Prance; that the object of the
company was tn purchase lands and build
h iuses id ing the line of the Pacific railroad
at points where cities and villages wrro like
ly to spring up; that he had no doubt money
thus invested would double or treble itself
each year; that bubscriptioos were limited
to $1,000 'each, and he wishul me to sub
scribe. He showed me a long list of sub
scribers, among them Mr. Oakcs Ames, to
whom he referred me for further informa-
tiou con't rning the enterprise. I answered
that I had Pot the money to spare, and if I
had I would not subscribe without knowing
more about the organization. Mr. Train
left me, saying he would bold a place open
for me and hoped I would yet subscribe.
The Mime day I asked Mr. Ames what he
thought ol the enterprise, lie exprissed
the opinion that the Investment would be
safe and profitable.
"I heard nothing further upon the subject
forayear or more, aud it was almost for
gtittin, when sometime, I should say, during

case as presented I probably should have
taken the stock if I had bc-n satisfied as to
the extent of pecaniaiy liability. Thus
the matter rested for borne time, I think un

I understood that there were

had heaid that the company was involved

The New York Tribune Is quite c'foful !
over Its escape from tho diet of boiled crow

Hut that Journal was not so tortunato Iu the
Pollination of Garfield as Its editor pre

tu supporting the rrpubtlc.iti nomination, It
was very severe on the Congressmen who
wcro implicated tn the Credit Mobiler mat
ter nt tho ttmo it was first made public.
When that dhreputoble business was under

took occasion to reniurk :
'It is very easy to sew that the stock of the

the stock. Thii is what is called in Wall

other. The actual value ofstock sold at $100
a share would have been to anybody out of
the clrclo of Otkes Ames friends not pur
chaseable for less than $300 to 100. Put
there was a film of decency thrown over the
transaction by Mr. Ames, in charging sever
al months' Interest ou the stock nt the time
it was sold to tho members of Congress.
mis interest had accrued while bo was
holding it to see where it could bo placed to
the best advantage."
That is to say that the Congressmen who
received stock from Oakcs Ames got it for
nothing or as n gilt, the accrued dividends
being sullicicnt to pay for it. Tho IKbune
went on tosay: The more recent Legislation
which Ames' transactions with members o
Congress had reference to, may be stated In
a few words. Secretary Unutncll ii.Msted
that half tho earning ol the roiul in carrying
mails and troops for the Government thould
be applied to the payment of interest on the
loans that tho government had made to the
road. The Legislation oblainid overruled
the Secretary aud enabled tho road to post
pone payment of interest until the bonds fell
duo some thirty yetrs hsnct. To sum up,it
may bo briefly stated that the Union Pacillc
and Credit Mobiller together got the pro.
ceeds of liberal United Stales laud grants, of
donations of communities near tho rnad,ani
the entire subsidy of government bonds, as
a clear profit. Tho proceeds of the mortgage
bands which displayed the government lien
were sufficient to have built tho road To
tho original stockholders in the Union Pa-
cific, the profit was something almost in
credible. A share bought for $5 subscrip.
became $100 CioJIt Mobiller, which paid
as we havo seen In the ovnlcnci concerning
the Legislators who received it, dividends
that amounted to at least treble its nominal
value. It i, of course, that all Legislation
who favored the Union Pacific railroad
swelled tho profits of tho Lpgiidainrs who
became stockholders in the Credit Mobilier,
The awkardness of this position was vastly
increased by the thin disguise of purchase
beiug torn away, under which the profit
bearing stock had been really the gilt o
Oakcs Ames. Tho denial of the facts con
verted the transaction into a criminal act.
Gen Garfield was one of the Congressmen
who where shown by the testimony taken
before the investigating committeo to have
received Credit Mobilier stock from Oakcs
Ames. Hewentbeforo that committee and
deuied on his oath that he ever held any o
the. stock. So then it appears that the re
publican candidate for President was one of
those Congressmen whoso denial of the
facts," according to the Tribune "converted
tho transaction into a criminal act." Mark,
now.lhearticleiuthe Trlbunefiom which these
extracts are made was published mouths a
ter the death of Horace Greeley and whllo
Whitelaw lleid, tho present editor of that
sheet, had control of its columns. Tho
question arises, has Mr. lleid changed his
former opinion of tho couduct cf the Con.
gressmen who received Credit Mobilier stock
as a gift from Oakes Ames? If not he is
convicted by his own newspaper of support
ing a caudidato lor Pres'dent who was guilty
ot a "criminal act." This is tho severe and
inexorable logic ot the matter and thero is
no possibility of escaping it. The Tribune
will not eat crow but it will be obliged to

It obviates all the objections modo to any
In addition It embraces several now features
ot tho greatest value, for which wo havo ob

CHILLED STEEL PLOW
Its weight will bo eighteen pounds less than
our present Btjles.
A nrst-class steel Plow, mado In tho or
dinary way, full rigged, retails for twenty-lwo
dollars. Inferior steel Plows retail from six
teen to nineteen dollars.
Tho prlco of our new now will bo but
Seventeen llollnra, and It wUl bo tho
cheapest Agricultural Implement ever sold.
Its mold board will outwear three of tho
very best kinds ot tho ordinary steel mold
It will scour In soils whero nil steel plows

With this now will bo Introduced a corru
gated Plow Point and Jointer Point, on which
wo havo also obtained a Patent, and which Is
also a great Improvement, both ns regards
btrenglh and wear.
Tho Jointer can bo shifted so ns to tako
raoro or less land, and also more or less pitch,

Tho wheel will run under tho beam or ono
sldo of It as desired, and alwaj-s kept In line.
The beam Is adjustable for Spring or Fall
riowlng, and also for two or three horses.
Tho handles can bo adjusted to accommo
date a man or boy, on tho samo Plow.
It Is a perfect Plow.
Wooden beams arc going out ot uso becauso
theyfchrtnk, swell and warp, and never run
two seasona alike.
Iron beams arc too heavy.
Malleablo beams becomo demoralized and
bend, which Is much worso than to break.
A Steel beam Is tho necessity ot tho day. It
Is threo times as rtrong and v cry much lighter
than any oilier stylo.
When tre say a Mold board Is chilled, tho
farmers know It Is so.
Wo do not palm on on them a composition
of various mcuils and caU it chilled metal.
We wont agents for this new Plow In every
town In this btatc.
Wo can giro but a very small discount to
them, but wo will pay tho llallroad Freight.
Wo propose to placo this Plow In tho hands
of Farmers as near tho cost ot manufacture
It will bo tho Utl Agricultural Implement

Tersons therefore who aro not wlUlng to act
as agents on tho principle that " a nlmblo six
pence Is better than a slow shilling," need not
apply for an agency.
No Plows on commission. All sales absolute.

Steel costs several times moro than Iron.

discounts, can bo sold for Seventeen Dollars.
