by tlio mysterious visits of a colored

during tho struggle without effect. Ho

Judgo Gates, wiio nppearB as Tracey's

the business conducted there, lie de
nied that It was otherwise than a legiti
mate banking mid brokerage business.
Ho stnted that ho had been in tlio War
Department linddr Secretary llolknap.
A question 'as to why he lett that olllco
was objected to nnd overruled.
Tanner's partner, John H. Ilnrmon,
tcstllled this morning that during tho

that Trnccy was armed. lie heard the
shot, and when Tanner- called ho went
into tho room.

Representative Stewart statod that
Tracy's general reputation was good for
being an amiable, peaceable man. Tracy
had been United States Marshal in tho
district In which tho witness lived.
"Mr. Stewart," said Mr. Shllltnpton.
"Is tho reputation of tho average Texan

"As good as in any other Stnto In this

I had been engaged In stock speculation,
