The civil service Investigation, down
in tho ccllnr under tho Capitol, was be
gun n little beforo 11 o'clock this morn
ing. First Chairman Lehlbneh handed
to feci clary Conger nnd had him rend a
letter fiom Prof. Flynn of tho Ivy Civil
Service Instllulo, in which ho told how
he wns assaulted by three men, who
said they were rtlnllvcs nnd friends of
JHss I'abucy, ns recounted In yester
day's CniTK. Ho wiolo that he had
swoiu out wnnants for the men, but
had since found that his nssallnnts had
glen false nnmes. Ho wanted the
committee to summon Miss Dabncy
and compel her to tell who the men
'woe. JSo action wns taken by the
committee, though in his letter Pro
fessor Flynn asked If ho wns not en
titled to the committee's piolectlon.
A letter wns lend from Census Super
intendent Porter, in which he pointed
out some inaccuracies In Mr. fjhldy's
testimony. Chairman Lehlbneh stated
that the testimony might be finished to
day to tho llrst part of the Investigation.
Mr. Ilntton stated that Postmaster
Paul of Milwaukee was picsent. and
would be called. Then, after the chair
man had asked tho committeemen's
peimisslon, Mr. llatton put lleprcscnta
tivc Drown of Virginia on the stand,
nnd be testified to Miss Dabncy's entire
lcspeclnbility nnd voracity.
Commissioner Kooscvcll then rose and
lead n statement legarding things pre
viously elicited dining the Investigation.
He snld ho thought he should be allowed
to read bis statement on account of the
"latitude nllowed the other side."
"Dcforc this invcsllgntlon goes fur
ther, I wish to make astntcmcnt In ref
erence to tho testimony elicited on Sat
unlay in legal d to Mr. Shidy. I liavo
nothing further to say ns to the wisdom
or unwisdom of seeking to protect a man
who abandoned wrong-doing, and at tho
risk of his place tinned Government
witness. I thought then, and I think
still, that it was my duty as a Govern
ment olllccr to protect a Government
witness. As to that policy the com
mittee will judge. Iluttlicie is another
point which 1 wish to make perfectly
clear befoio leaving this branch of tho
subject. The testimony of the Super
Intendendent of tho Census nnd of the
Postmaster Gcneinl might give tho im
picsslon that I had concealed fiom
them the facts in regard to Pliidy
whenl sought their assistance in pro
tecting him. If such an impression
was gl en by Mr. Porter ho
limply collected it when iceillcd
to the stand, as appears by the
iccoid. The impression of on
cealment given by the Postmaster
Geneiul if It exists may still renviin.
It is, however, impossible that Iho.Post-mnster-Gencinl
could have meant to
convey any such idea, for he was ofll
cially cognizant of ail tho facts in re
gaid to Shidy by the lcportln tho Paul
case the repoit which he assigns as in
part the basis of his action in deteunin
ing on the tcmovnl of Paul. I quote
fiom the icpoit."
Mr. 1'ooscvelt then lead at length In
support of his position, and continued:
"It may be added that any one who has
lead tho icpoit, even in tho most cur
soiy manner, cannot fall to understand,
not only tho evidence given by
Mr. Shidy before tho Commis
sion, but the exact naluio of Mr.
Shidy's violation of law: for Mr. Shldy's
name occuis in nl most every sentence
of the repoit, and his testimony, both
as to his own wiong-doing and that of
his colleagues, is an integral and in
separable pait of it.
"As the chnigc ngnlustMr. Paul In
volved of necessity collusion with Mr.
Shidy, It is impossible to lend the ic
poit in leference to the former without
understanding pieciscly both the testi
mony and defense of the latter.
The Potmasler-Gcueral was nlso
cognizant of tho facts In regaid to John
sou who was equally at' fault with
Shidy who did not confess, but who Is
still letained in ollleo by tho suU'eianco
of the Postmaster-General. There was
nothing inconsistent theiefoie In seek
ing to piotect and given living to tho
man who icpcnlcd'tind confessed his
"The Postmnster-Gcneral. I am sine,
did not mean to convey tho impression
that anything was couccalcd from him
In icgaul to Shidy, but, in case such a
mistalic should arise, I desiio to say
that I not only concealed nothing
in icpaul to Shidy fiom any
one, but nil the facts in legard to
him wcte publicly nnd olllclally known
at the time of my suggestion of him for
ofllco and at the lime of his appoint
ment. Then tho investigation piocecded.
Mr. llatton asked Mr. Hooscvclt what
ho meant by giving Mr. Shidy n chance,
and the chairman said all that had been
gone over befoic.
Commissioner Lymnn wanted to
mako n statement. lie recalled
Postiuastcr-Geneinl Wnnnmaker's state
ment when he was on tho stand that ho
lulled to icmcinbcr-the call ho leceived
from Commissioners Lyman nnd
Thompson. Mr. Lyman rclnted tho 10
ceipt of n telegram fiom Shidy announc
ing his dischaigo from his position and
their call on the Postmnstcr-Gcneinl to
seo what could bodouoto piotect Mr.
Shidy fim tho icsults of his honesty
nnd " lcpenlancc. Mr. Wiinamnker
had told them Unit tho matter
was out of his hands. Mr. Lyman was
questioned by Chnirmnn Lehlbneh and
Committeeman Doten ns to whether
they did not lecommend Mr. Shldy's
iiiiistntemcnt. Mr. Lymnn said that
after Mr. Wnnnmnkcr said tho mnltcr
was out of his hands they did not piess
Mr. Lyman was asked whether ho
bad had nny Inteiview with Mr. Shidy.
Ho had not, but ho was fuithcr ques
tioned ns to tho object of Mr. Shidy's
having been called to the Commission's
looms fiom tho Census Ollleo. Mr.
I.) man said that It wns to question him
as to his lecollectloii of what had oc
Mr Iloosovclt. who had written tho
letter culling Mr. Shidy to the Inter
view, i mule n statement in logart to It.
Ho said that Mr. Shidv had mutely
been urged to tell tho truth only during
Mi, llatton called Commissioner
Thompson and questioned him nbout
tho visit ho nnd Commissioner Kooso
veil inndo to Milwaukee. Governor
Thompson snld Hint ns they had no
stenographer with them they did not pre
serve any tecord of their examination of
tho witnesses they examined. Af terMr,
Shldy's nirlvnl heio lie hnd seen
him sc.vcr.ul times, nnd ho still
ndhcrcd to tho feelings nnd state
ments elicited in Milwaukee. After ho
wns examined by tho committee,
Governor Thompson said ho mot Shidy
in the corridor nnd told him that his
line spun moral thcoiies accounted for
tlio unfnvoinblo impression he hud
made. "I told him he had cut his own
lliionl," Inteijeclcd Mr. lloosovelt. .
Mr. Ilntton nsked Governor Thomp
son if, nflcr he hnd found out Mr.
Shldy's true woith, lie took nny steps
looking to Mr. Shldy's rcuiovnl from
the position he then occupied. Gov
ernor Thompson hnd not.
Lx--Postmaster George II. Paul of
Milwaukee, a tall, w'rilte haired and
whiskeicd old gentleman with n big
bundle of iinpoitant-looklng docu
nicnls under bis nrm, wns then
examined. He said he had been
Mayor, member of the Legislature,
school tru'tec, ntllroad commissioner,
and 1ms held mnuy other public olllccr
lie wns appointed postmnster by 1'ivd
dent Cleveland unit continued to be un
til the llrst of Inst June.
"On whoceicconmieudation wereyo'i
"The culiro State."
Mt. Paul nlso snld he wns vlco presi
dent of the Mate Civil Service Jtcform
Association. Asked It ho knew Mr.
Shidy he said that at one ttiue he had
thought he did. He said he had under
stood the civil service board In
his ollleo icprcscnted tho National
board, in fact, wns, so far as hU ollleo
wns concerned, tho National Hoard.
This boaid operated independently of
him. Mr, Johnson, the president of
thoboaid, was nn old member of tho
fenlconud nn entlicly leputable man.
Committeeman lloatner interrupted
to question tho pertinency of Mr.
Paul's testimony. A long argument of
tho point followed. Mr. Doatner
thought that no light could bo
thrown on the charges against tho com
mission by questioning Mr. Paul, but
it was finally decided by tho chairman
to go on with Mr. Paul's examination.
Asked about the number of removals
ho made in bis olllce, ho said hu
thought less ictnovals were mido
In his oilico In propoition than
in nny other in tho country.
IIo was asked about the number of
changes during the Hist year of his
term. He said theie were in tho classi
fied service 45 changes 29 resignations
and 10 removals. He was asked
if he ever nssistcd Mr. Shidy
In his fnlsiflcntions or maik
ings of examination papers, nnd
Mr. Paul said "No." He said too that
he hnd nover helped Shidy to increaso
thc eligible list. Ho staled positively
that fiomilislto last the Commission
hnd been misled by "the cunning nud
lack of veracity ot this man Shidy."
Mr. Paul explained that many of tho
appcninnees of wiong doing were oc
casioned by Mr. Shldy's own btitn
deis. When cnught in these blun
dcis he would tell falsehoods
apparently Implicating himself nnd
otheis in wiong doing. Mr. Taul said
Mr. Shidy had told him that he was in
timidated by the Commission, cjpcclally
by Comisssioner Itoosevclt, mid was
inado desperate by the thought of their
finding him out in his blunders., Mr.
Paul wns questioned ns to the appoint
ment of Miss .Tosio Whitehead ns n
stamper In Ids olllce. Ho was
asked if it wns usual to nppolnt
women nsslampeis and said Miss White
head was tho Hist one ever appointed.
HccouUl not icmcmber whether tliero
wtic men who weio eligible for this
place when Miss Whitehead was ap

Judge Dinghnm made his liillng this
moining on the motion argued by Gen
et al Canington for a new trial for
Henry Johnson, who was convicted of
manslaughter In the killing of Iluoeh
Turner. Tho Gcncial's stiougcst point
in his demand was that he was entitled
to two days' notice of the piescnce of
the witness. John Lewis Johnson, who
was tho only witness to testify to hav
ing seen the shot fired which killed
Henry Johnson is inclined to bo con
tent with the verdict that has been found
against him, and asked tltat ho be given
sentence, but his counsel, General Car
linglon, claimed that ho had been scared
into tho feeling that if tiled ngaiu he
might be convicted of murder and

Senator Hoar called up for consider

Mr. Gcoigo opposed the bill, nhd the

Judge I.eonidns C. Houk of tho Sec

of the Fenthei'ston-Cato contested elec

ns soon ns he could. "1 wouldn't
hnve missed being in Nashville to day
for a thousand dollais In gold," said
the Judge. "Tho Republican Leagues
of the country hold n. national conven

be one of the greatest political nT
fails which has ever occurred Iu
the South, nnd but for this contested
election case I would ho thcio. No
money consideration could have kept

Tlio Judge's tcgrct nt not being

belongs to the Wheel, a branch
of tho Farmers' Alliance. He has
nlvvnys been a Democrat, aud
has been a member of the Atkansas
I.ecislaluie. 'Ills Congressional om

said, of n tiadc between tho

wlcieby tho members of the
Wheel were to vote for the late Colonel
John M. Clayton in the Second district
nnd tlio Republicans weic to suppott
Mr. Fentbcislon in the Fiu-t district.
Tlio deal wns c.inled out, but sub
sequent lo the election Colonel Clayton
was killed. Mr Cute had a nnioiily
"crordlng to tho leliuns, and tc
ccived the ccilillcate. Tho House

only had the Iloor lo ask unanimous

J. O'Connor, which Is ceitnlnly a most
rcmnrknblo one. It was claimed that
he hnd died nnd that his body was
taken to the morgue, whrre It was
identified by his wife, who had him
burled in Calvary Cemetery. A few
dnys Inter It was claimed that O'Connor
wns alive; that his wife hnd been mis
taken, and that the man who was taken
to tho grave was not her husband.
it now tinnspires that thcio Is every
reason to believe Hint O'Connor was
not bulled bv proxy, but lit his own
pioper person, sonic time between tlio
night ot Monday, February 10, and tho
alternoon of Wednesday. O'Connor
was seen Saturday night nnd staled
most emphatically that the grave in tho
cemetery is empty, and ho exhibited n
cut whicli had been made half way
across the abdomen. IIo Is oT tlio
opinion that ho was really hulled, anil
Hint his body was taken up and con
eyed to the dissecting loom whiles in u
state of .suspended animation, and that
when tho flist incision was made It
caused ii How of blood, which restored
him to consciousness.
He states that ho went to a lodging
house Monday evening and that bo
knew nothing moio until Wednesday
night, when he found himself seated on
