have It pot upon Its passage.
Mr. McJUNKIN objected to the pan.
sage of the bill, saying . It effected the
Interests of the people of his county
very materially. The matter- hadbeen
called to his attention for the first dine.
The road was In au Insolvent Conditloe,
was entirely in Veusogo county, wasin
the hands of creditors and a sequestrator
I had been appointed to elide its affairs
I lie hoped the House. in Justice to the
people he represented, would vote . the
bill down.
Mr. JOHNSON advocated the bill.
saying the road was somewhat involved,
and the object of the bill was to relieve
the road by authorit!ng the home of
preferred stock. He believed there was
nothing objectionable In the hill.
A debate of considerable warmth en.
sued, Mr. Johnson sung he was aware
that the road was entirely in-Venango
county, but that evelybody in the Corn
mouweisth deuce does not Ilia there. As
the law now islands there was little hope
or-theareditors - getting their pay. By
peeing this MR and permitting the road
to Mane preferred stook, both debtor and
creditor might be saved. It gave parties
the option to receive preferred, stock In
consideration of the Indebtedness of the
road. The road was situated' in a vain.
able producing . territory of the oil re
glans, from Pithole to the Allegheny
river, a distance of seven miles.
Mr. llicJUNlClN.thought If the matter
was right, as the gentleman from Craw
ford represented,• that the bill should
have been introduced before. Why had
no person Interested In the matter sub.
milted It to him for his consideration.
The session was nearly at its alone, and it
„was impouttlie for him to correspond
with the people that he represented. If
this bill was passed to day It would in.
terfere very materially with the rights of
the people he represented. He boped
the House would vote it down and be
done with IL
Mr. JOHNSON (Crawford) asked for
the reading of the bill, which wes,resil
by the Clerk.
Mr. hi`JUNRIN said that the creditors
of the road lived In Vetoing° county,
and were really the only interested par
ties in then:unbar. The organization was
a myth; it might have a legal existence,
but the officers of the mad were not in
termed In the matter. He believed the
bill had been introduced in a very un
gentlemanly, and he the
House wouldtreat s nr
the matter as it de
served, by voting the bill down.
Mr. -JOHNSON replied that It was
'something new to the House that a bill
could not be introduced without being
addressed in nziparllametitary language.
The bill was sent to him by one of his
constituents. - He was at Ices to under
stand why such language had been need,
and why it was permitted. Standing In
his place here and representing- his con.
aliments, because he presented a bill

from the close of the war, in the year
1866, the people of the United States have
paid into the National Treasury, in the
shape of customs and direct tax, the sum
of nineteen hundred millions of dollars,
which sum exceeds beyond a doubt that
over raised by any other nation on the
earth in the way of taxes in the same
period of time. In the Came period,
notwithstanding the extraordinary ox.
newton growing oat of the war, the pub
lic debt has been diminished more'
than three hundred millions. It
has. been estimated by the Commie-
Monier of Internal Revenue, that under
the existing rate of taxation and import
dunce, including the surplus during the
present fiscal year, it will exceed the ex

which so widely prevails, to require of
the people the necessary sacrifices
to extinguish it am rapidly es

This would enable us to reduce the tax

those on conveyances of real estate and
on trust deeds of mammoth railroad

proposed should be too ,great, he would
make up the deficiency by Increasing
the present tax on whisky and tobacco.
