Kink upon a petition of lat names, against a
reuioUMiratioo of, about 300 names, all tax
payers, besldos several hundred others who
Iiad ruuioustraied against a toll-road In any
shape whatever, at a Court or two prior to
tin loHstug of tho samo. On or about April
1st, 1S7I, tbo Canyon vllle and Galeavlllelload
Coiupauy, tbeoldest uorporallou on tbo Can
yon itoad, having completed a portion of
their road, put'lip a tollgato 'aud began tak
ing toll. The County Court, April Dili, ex
tended tho boundaries of the Cauyouville
Itoail District far enough south to Include the
(;rouud on which thu toll gato had been orcct
nl, and at oucn ordered the Supervisor to
clear the obstructions from tbe road.
April 10ib,tliH County Court finding that
aoilhileiil lime bad elapsed for tbo Uris
ortooperute, and havliiglully male up their
minds the day previous, In their secret coun
cil room (w filch Is supposed to bo Kink's
saloon), they received au ngroemunt from
Uiizioy, Kink and others, without mention
ing tno matter in court at all. Khzhugh,
Jacks-ill aud others signed Hand the Canyon
road was loased to Uazley, Kink and others
for an ltideliulto length of time, and Com
missioner Keiil,sltllug at Iho same, table bad
no knowledge of tho matter until utter the
aliening by the othois. Tho matior waa not
discussed aud was nul even talked over In
the Court room nor by tho Commissioners
hi session; and although Commissioner
Kent pronounced It an putrago and said that
It ouulit not be lensod while two rival com
psnies wero litigating their rltchts, and par
ticularly whllo a largo msj irlty of names
appear on tho remo.istrauce against leas-Int.-
Hy leasing tho mills, lavs the foundation
for half a score of lawsiniNj Iho or three i.f
which are already coiumonced, and the
County Court has boon so Ingeniously han
dled bv tho two corporal loompanlos, that the
tax-payers will be compelled to pay tho ex
pense of both sides of the suit.
Now, theso same unprlneipalf d managers
have die biro faced audacity to accuso honest
men men that lutvo never mixed up with
any ring or clique with dishonesty. These
same ptitlos are two aud two of tho old
political p idles ritzhugh ami Fluk of the
old Democratic party, and Uazloy and Jack
sou of tbo Republican party. This Qazley Is
an old political hack; to my knowledge, "has
been seeking oftko for tho last twenty two
years, and has boxed tho political chart of
every political p.rty that has existed In tbat
Is It any wonder that tho tax-paysrs and
laboring classes have bocome tired of such
management, and should look among their
own class for men to servo them In an official
capacity," 1 could go on to a mnoh greater
lougth, but apaoo admonishes me that I mast
draw to n close, and In conclusion will say
that If the Independent voters ol Douglas
County see lit to olect me 'as their Judge, to
admluistortboatUalraof tho County, that I
have no frlonds.U) roward nor enemies to
punish, but will endeavor, to the best of my
ability, to so administer an to do justice to
all nud Itijustlro to none, and I will also n.
(sure you that I will have no secret council
room to concoct plans to rob tbo County In.
And whatever assertion may bo started
about my belnit brought out by rings and
cliques, 1 prououueo (also. ,1 was nevorcon-
Buueu auoui me manor nor It was never oven
naiuod to me until tho morning of tho con-
ujrw. men 1 wai nominated. Arriv
ing there that morning as a delegate from
the precltict or Wilbur, soveral of tbe dele
cates, that had been there all night, camo to
mo and statod that they bad ascertained that
I was almost tbo unaulmous choice of the
delegation lor tbe olllce, and wished to know
V would aooopt the nomination If nouilu
ated. The fact is, I waa brought out by my
brothor taruiors and Stockrnisers.
