It may be that the ciayjon-Buiwer treaty was a stupendous blunder, hut that doc* not l tcr the fact that it Is in exisieniV and in full force.

Thera w< te strong arguments In fsvor of the bill, ii*l, as lar a we observed, only one ngainst It. namely, that the state’* money could not I*- constitutional ly used lor suen a purpose. That argu ment was met, however, by the opinion Of tne Attorney General, who hi-kl that the money of c tie- stale could be used ns provhled tn the btli. By building a depot 'w ith the money that I* now drawing only 2 per cent, in slate depositories, ihe slaie would have made a very good investment, and. that too. without taking any n*k Tlie depot would have been worth all It cost, and more too, at the time the state money woukl have been needed for buying stale j ooiKts. iiti'l the stale would have had It* : money wllh Interest thex-on. Not ! would the state have gain'd a line depot ; proiverty, but the v.ilut of the stale's railroad would have been greatly In creased.
