ho would appear. Alter Mr. Catkll's testi

was clcaicd, and tho reading ot tho
record of Colonel Canaday's testimony,
cHeii jestcrday, was proceeded with.
When tho reading of tho testimony wag con
cluded Captain Amies was put ou tho stand
to mako n statement and bo examined.
Ho said: "Mr. President and gentlemen
ot tho court, during tho month of January,
whllo General Barnum ot New York was In
this city, ho asked mo to ilud quarters for
his troops nudoffcicd moan appointment
ou his staff. I declined, as I oxpected nil
appolntmcut from General Beaver. Bov
eral dajs passed, nnd not hearing from
Governor Beaver, I tendered my services
to tho Governor by letter. On tho 13th of
Fcbiuaryl received an appointment ou
Governor Beaver's staff, slgnotl by Adjutant
General Hasting". I accepted Febiuary 10,
by letter. Mj letter of acccptanco boro my
nanio In print, at the top of tho nago and
thcro could bo no mlstako In tlio nanio.
About tbo 10th or 20th of February, I
took ono or two gentlemen to headquarters
and several were appointed upon my rec
ommendation. Somo tlmo later, while at
headquarters, General Hastings camo up to
mo aim miormcu mo my appointment was
a mistake. I sold, 'This Is very peculiar,
General; somo ono has Induced jou to tako
my narno from tho list.' Ho rcnllcd that
this was not tlio case. I asked htm to ex
plain and ho declined to talk any further
"I returned to my ofllco nnd wrotohlm a
letter asking why my nnino did not appear
In tho published list or aides. This letter
was Inclosed In nn envelope an advertising
cnvelopo conccrnlngeomo claims in Mexico
which boro tho address, 'Hell In Tovas.'
Ho seemed to tako offense nt thls.'-
Captatn Armcs testified further that Gen

Informing him that his appointment was a

ct nor Beaver was in tbo city, vv ltnoss called
upon him, aud lu tho presence ot General
Hastings asked him If he had received n
telegram from General Hastings regarding
tho correction ot tbo mistake. Oovcrno
Bcaver replied ho had heard nothing,
whereupon Gencial Hastings whlspe-cd
fcomcthfng to hlra. Then Governor Boavcr
saui: "uapiain Alines, mo commissio'is

you bad better rido lu General Barnum's

I return tollairlsburg.'- After somo furthe"
conversation General Hastings llcw Into a

For this conduct ho nltotward apologlzeij.
Captain Aunts said ho afterward received
an appointment toiidoln tho parado In a

lldlng peaceably along In tlio proc 'a
Colonel Gibson lodo up to him In n gait be

sponse to witness' quciy as to what thotroa
blo was,Coloucl Gibson lcpllcd that Capt: n
Armcs had no business lu tho paialo.
Coloucl Gibson then took hold ot
Captain Amies' capo and Cptalu llo.irko
rodo up nnd grasped hlshrldle-ie'u bolh
being very violent In their inaunc, and,
without giving him tlmo to oxplalu, bacded
him over to tho police, and ho was put out
of the parade. Captain Amies testified he
Mill believed that Colonel Glbsou nnd Cap
tain Bouiko acted lu n diuuken nml dUn
dcrly manner and ho believed it B'mply
bocauso It was hardly crcdlblo that two
ofllcers ot tho regular army could act lu
Micli a violent aim uncalled for manner It
they weio sober.
Captain Armcs said ho camo to tho Police

as by that tlmo he bad given It up as Im
possible to havo tho caso como up. Ho

deavor to havo a military trial and was In
formed that ho himself was likely to bo the
subject of n inllltniv tilal, us charges

so Captain Amies then preferred tho
charges against him. Captain Annas
Muted his caso to tbo court clearly and con
cisely, and dining tho recital his manner
was calm, dignified and placid, J lo read to
the court his letter to Governor Beaver,

Beaver declined to apologUo for Captain
Amies' mistreatment lu tho parade, nud ro
fused to say nil) thing further lu tho uiatto
and moved off.
"I then leached up myhaud at hostortod
off," continued Captain Amies, "to detain

taken bold of by Howes. Upon being iu
leased, I walked quietly out ot the hotel
aud went about my business." Captain
Arnica recited his correspondence with the

Captain Amies. "I never pleaded to cs
