Concerning the statement that Senator Thurmau got $50,000 for nis services in a case of the Atlantic and Great Western Railroad, we have to say that the whole siöry was au unbridled and licentious misrepresentation, and, we inay add, totally at varianoe with the f acts. - Oincinnati Commercüd (Ind.)
