All the Senators present at tho can

The, first witness heard wn? Pckloy
P, Coke. lie is a pleasant-faced man
of CO ycnis, well preserved and n good
talker. He was a Democratic Senator
In the Pennsylvania Legislature and
Is prol ably worth a scoro of millions
lie is an expert lu goology as rolatod
to coal mining, and has studied thu
subject both i-cluntillcally and prno
llcnlly. Tlio capacity of tho half
dozen collieries his llrm owii3 is about
two and n-half million tons of coal a
year. Thu mini's cover over thirty
two thousand acres.
His testimony was for tho most part
ns to tho lelntivo value of tho various
coals nnd tho dllTeieiicu between an
tliiaeitu and bituminous coal.
A box tilled with" lumps of coal was
brought in. Kach specimen was a
different vntiety of coal, and a nuinbor
was pasted on each lump, Mr. Coxo
took the lumps up onu by ouo nnd told
which was tlio tnulo naino for oaeh,
und aUo told what inino it camu from.
Under cioss-oxainlnatlon .Mr. Coxo
said that sometimes when the produc
tion ot ids mluo was p.utloularly
linen tho railroad would hucomu
"blocked" and his company was tin
nblo to get any of their coal to tho
maiktt, though tho Lehigh Valloy
Company never had any such illlllcitl
His. When Mr. Coxo took tho stand to
testify ho huld up his right hand and
Commissioner Cooley ndnilnlstorod
tho oath. Ho was not sworn on tho
Plhle, hut merely held up his hand
and bald hn would toll tho truth. So
when Con n sol Johnson asked him
whether the Lehigh Pallroad pcoplo
mo tiyltig to dilvo unlliraclto from the
markets ho said ho wns tin thin to say
of his own coiiholousuess. Mr. John
son misunderstood tho word an I ml 1 :
"I did not ask you nbout your con
science" "I didn't say conscience," said Mr.
Coxe. "I never use thnt woul in talk
ing about railroads."
Tho ci oss-examlnaUon proceeded,
nnd tho counsel engaged lu u llt
tlu tilt over some minor point, and nt
1 o'clock Chairman Cooley said:
"Gentlemen, we will tako n recesn until
2 o'clock," and the live Commissioners
got tip and tiled out.
Thcro aro about forty more wltnossos

Tho (list witness called was K. T.

otiicc. no tcsiiiied mat tliu ciitui
draughtsman, Mr. Vim Xnlta, had ap
proached him and asked him to Inko
the nmtrnrt for tho plans for the pub

in tho ofllco, wero lo have taken the
contract. Mr. Unbelts discussed with
Mr. Van Jtoltii and Colonel Frerel tho
nticsflou of gettlm; Home one outshlo
thn (illlco to put in n bid.
Mr. Van Noita had suggosted th it
Mr. Avery's son, a boy of 17, might
put in the bid. The amount to ho paid
for tho plain, Mr. Van Xoit.t had
tald, would bo $000.
Mr. Aveiy estimated thnt tho plans
would have cost the Government
about $1170 If piepired in the olHco
by the employes of Iho Oovcriimuiit.
"Mr. Aveiy" Mild that ho and .Mr.
PohmtH had concluded that it would
not bo honest to do as Mr. Van Noltu
had Migccslcd, and so they had not put
in 11 bid."
-Mr. Avery passed sevcro criticism
on many of the methods of Mr. Fruret.
I lie said that tliu report nt 1110 Kit
I pcrvising Architect had been hold
back; that It should have been imtie 1
' in December lo contain tho work of
I tlio fiscal year ending In October.
I He understood that Colonel Froret
hnd sent in his resignation, to take ef
fect March -1, and that he was hurry
I ing forward tlio woik on pi ins, with
the idea ot making a snowing lor mm
I self when lie went out of olllcu.
Ho said Unit tho employes of tho
office, who had taken contracts for
I preparing plans outside this oMlca,
had used for interiors tho stock plans
In llto ollieo, thus o1itninln pay for
woik which they did not do.
These stock or standard sheets, ho
said, were very poor; In fact, ho would
not use them on tho interior of a
i5,000 speculative building.
.Mr. Avery contradicted tho testi
mony given by Colonel Frerot In ro
hit ion to iho woik done by his son in
tho ofllro. lie said that at thu t'tm'J
younir Freict did work on tlioOltuinw.i

The plans wero not prepared by him
without assistance, as his father had
said, but wcto prepared under thu
