It is disheartening to the manapemeut, hftei having surmounted the physical and financial difficulties surrounding the railroad, to'find thnt the legal complications which they inherited from their predecessors 'should assume a threatening .form at this time. The effect on quotations of the securities, however, seems excessive and indiscriminate. l.Tlie. bonds of the New Albany .coiripamy . ought not to be diminished .in yajue, even if the Beatty ville litigants Should succeed to the full extent of their hopes, and the stockholders would also, find means to protect themselves. 'JBut 'legal defenses nguinst t.he unjust claims have not .been exhausted by the iNew Albany management." The. lawyers of the Monon deem the defense ol the company to be impregnable. Even should 'the 'litigants attain finally to a judgment in their favor, the claim ; would-rank only as an unsecured debt subsequent to all the existing mortgages, end it would be. extinguished by i an -assertion of the rights ot the mort- gagees. . _ _ _ _ | , A 'HEROIC DEED.

Chicago, Aug 1 . 14.— Hale Johnson, ot Newton, 111., was formally notified In .the Association Building auditorium Thursday night of his nomination by the prohibitionist convention at Pittsburgh for the office of vice president of the United States, Mr. Johnson was' nominated for governor of Illinois by the prohibitionists last April, but resigned when the higher nomination cnrne, Mr. Johnoon'8 Addresi. In accepting the nomination Mr. Johnson scathingly arraigned the old part!c« on the charge of responsibility for con- 'llnuance of the liquor troWc, Its growth 1 and Its- power In politics, and for deceiving •the people by promising POOd times with each new imtional administration and not fulfilling such promise. He continued: "There -,lways lias been, and always will be, one question— one problem— upon wh'.ch all others depend for solution. Whenever a. nation Is able to solve and adjust fhla question, then, and not till thon, Is It In a condition to settle the others, which depend upon It. We cannot secure any permanent results In political reform until this queRVlon I* settled, and settled right. Civic federations may temporarily check political corruption In our cities, but as lonj? as this greatest source of political corruption Is left untouched their efforts for permanent relief will be in vain. Oufsllon of Ittoralu, Not Finance. "Many of our people believe that .our yrespiit financial depression, low prices and hard limes are the result of bad financial legislation, and that an Increase In the amount of money by the Crec coinage ot silver would prove a remedy for these conditions. I concur with them In their opinion that we must return to the full and free use of both of these metals In order to keep our circulating medium In a proper proportion to our population, but I do not believe Mi) the present condition of affairs, that 'the free coinage of silver would afford. us any substantial relief. The saloons of this, nation- absorb yearly 'not less than -. t "uD 000 000 of which it is safe to say that one-half la spent by the wn K e-earners of the country; men whose families are deprived of the necessaries of life to the full extent of their expenditure of money for flquor With more money In circulation, although we might tcmporarllylmve better * ime°^he sum wasted In the saloons would ,e increased, so that It would not per- mancntly benefit u, In ^y appreciable rte- crvee No kind of.

D . emwl|U 8ober T honght. "It Is doubtless true that the storm center to politics this year will be between the ft-e. coinage ol silver, at a ratio of sixteen 2Tone 9 and the maintenance of the existing Lold standard. Voters will be Importuned to postpone the settlement of .this que.tlon until the finance question is settled, as. we have been heretofore Importuned to. past- Son!
