Tho following from n Now York World

"Whichever course Oenetal llnrilson
takes, whether consctvatlvo or radical,
ho can never make any policy successful
lu breaking up tho solid south so long as
tho negro constitutes nine-tenths of thu

"Then you do hot bollovulhat tho solid
South will over divide?"
"Tlicro irb,ut ono wuy to.break It, uud
tlio Republican party Will not bo con

"It it wero to origlnnlo with tho Re

of the States North should favor it, it
would bo perfectly practicable, for I am
certain overy Southern State would ratify
such an amendment. Thcio while pcoplo
know by yeais of oxperienco that negro
bulliago is a failuio and an element of
eternal discord, corruption and deginda
tlon, Thoy would willingly sitriendcr
their increased lepresontation to get rid
of this continued menace to tlieir civili

of tho colored raeo?"
"If It were a question bofoia my Stuto
I certainly would, becausu I believe It
will bo advantageous to both races.
White men In the South differ in their
views on many questions, but thu pies

common Interests foicus them Into ono

think for themselves and dlvldo on ques

or thu respect nnd eoulldonco of

irritation to the white people. If thoy

negroes und havo been well acquainted
with them all my life, I would like to
see them piospcious and happy, and
from my lifelong acquaintance and close
observation and study of their situation
nnd characteristics, I fully believe their
disfranchisement, which would icmovo
all friction between them nnd the
whites, would contilhulo nioro to their

Senator W. K. Chandler of Now

and talked at follows to a Sun toportcr;
"Wo shall organlo tho Houso with llyo

words. Wo aro not going to let the Dem

is a man who accepts everything ho can,,
but that ho will not give anything nwav

The dcllcnto subioct of civil set vice re

interest tho Senator mightily, "Civil
service reform is all light in its way," lie
lomaikcd, "but it only applies to clerks,
thoso fellows who wrllo with pons, but
outside of them nil tho oillces aro polit

There will bo no hurry in meddling with
tho clerks, but in time they will havo to
go, too, and Republicans will bo put in.
But, as 1 said, thero is no hurry, for wo
are in for another twenty-four years, and
what is the senso of rushing things?"
Tho Speakership was brought up,
"Oh, Tom Reed will got It," said tho
Senator; "ho's from Now Kngland, you

thcic will ho a little natuinl strugglo bo

HE DETAILS HIS WORK ON THE TUNNEL
llolletrs Thnt CnroIossnoM tViis
Cntiso of tho Trouble,
Whon the Military Court of Investiga
tion met at tho War Department this
morning the taking of testimony was re
sumed, Tho first witness w as M ajor Ly
decker. IIo took the stand In full uni
form and was sworn by tho Recorder.
Ho testified that his duties Its engineer
otllcer on tho tunnel construction began
In August, 1882, and continued to thu
His duties In connection with tho In
crease of tho water supply of Washing
tun embraced tho erection of a dam nt
Great Falls; tho erection of curtain llsh
ways there: tho eoni-tiuctloti of the res
ervoir at llownrd University and tho
extension of thu tunnel.
In addition to these duties ho was En
gineer Commissioner of the District until
Either of these two branches of his
duty wcte cn6ugh to have demanded his
wholo attention. '
Going into dotnlls of ills work, ho snld
tlio first con ti net upon tho work com
menced in October, 18811. InreSponsoto
nis request to tlio unlet oi engineers,
Captain Symons was detailed ns his as
sistant upon tho work. No oi dors wero
given in writing. Such orders wero tho
rosult of conversations with his as
sistants. After Captain Symons was ie
llevcd, Mr. Coryell, a civil engineer, was
his assistant for about a jear. until
Lieutenant Townscnd came on. He also
put on a supenlslng inspector of
Witness had no recollection of com
plaint of bad work having been mado
durlng"Cnpt. Syraon's time. Witness said
that Mr. .Coryell had never reported to
him that tho "inspectors were not doing
their dutv or that lie hnd not euotigh as
sistance Witness had his first know
ledge of bad work in .luno last, when it
was ropoited to him by Elcut. Townsend
that dry' packing had beeil put In. A
section about 40 feet long was found and
torn out uud rebuilt.
Witness testified as to tho duties in de
tail of tho supei vising inspectors nnd
sub-inspectors. No complaints were
made as to any inefficiency of working
parties of tho contractors. "No men wero
recommended for dischargo by Mr.
Tlio Court rovortcd to tho testimony of
Engl noor Coryell, wheio ho. states that
sundry written roports and recommenda
tions wore mado to Major Lydecker,
and which received no reply, Mnjor
Lydecker testified that ho had no recol
lection of such instances. It was possible
they may hhvo been written and a verbal
When questioned as to tlio ficqttency
with which ho visited tho tunnel witness
lcplicd that hli inspections were frequent,
but holiad n6 record of how 'frequently
or at what( tlmo they"wup made, Ho
could not hKvo inspected very frequently
without neglecting his duties.
"How do you account for tho bad
work done?" asked Colonel QrjtighiU.
"I nin nt loss to account for it or nr
rivo at any Conclusion satifndtory to my
self. It was evidently ncgligonca on the
part of tho lnspectorsand, In some cases,
worso than negligence. If tho work liad
been done by day's labor Instead of by
contract it would" have been done better,
Ho thought that tho time of sub-in-spectors
belonged entirely to tho Govern
ment, and they should havo done noth
ing else. Ho believed that It was posslblo
for bad work to have beon dono to a
small extent even when tho inspectors
may havo had u determination to super
intend tlio work carefully. The naturo
of tho work and surroundings, and the
fact that tho workmen w oio sometimes
scattered over a space, w)iich prevented
simultaneous inspection, rendered this
posslblo, but it could not have been dono
to any lntge extent.
Ho had heard of tho bad woik dono
on tho Now York aqueduct and that
mado him a little apprehensive. Ho
went over to New York and visited tlio
aqueduct authorities tlicro. About tho
tlmo tho Kendall Rrothcis' nilldnvlts
came out w itness received a. letter from
New Yotk Informing him that Iliennau,
ono of tho faulty workmen theie, was
coming hero to work, uud warning him
to look out for him.
During tho examination of Major Ly
decker, tho fact was brought out that ho
