terchanged vlows as to the future conduct ot
tho examination, stating that they dostrod as
much as posslblo to avoid going over tho sanio
ground so many times.
Mr. Lord "You stated in the oarly part ot
your testimony that you dealt with Oenoral
nurlburt as a recognized criminal Y"
"Yes; I dealt with him as I would havo dealt
with n recognized criminal."
"Did your counsel know at that tlmo that
you wero dealing with him as such !"
"The dealings I had with him as such woro
by an understanding wlthcounsol."
" In your letter of Juno 2 you woro doal

character, you wero not to bo bound by I "
"Tho letter was Intended that It a man
was dishonest tho latter might Btay such a
man from working against us."
Tho witness was permitted to oxplaln again
his knowledgo of General Uurlburt. IIo lyul
novcr Intended to state as a fact that General
nurlburt was a bad man; It was only hear

IIo said in answer that ho didn't lntond to

go Into a long explanation, but Mr. Lord cut
him short by saying: "Ho didn't want auynf
nispuuosopnyas t ins intentions, tuo com
mlttco did not want to hear It."
Tho witness said ho put out tho letter and
left It to aenoral-IIurlburt's construction. Ho
expected that Uurlburt would reason to him

Tho witness was badly usod up as to his
wicked letter and his relations with General
Uurlburt, and his labored and oaslvo replies
to tho direct cut and thrusts ot Mr. Lord wore
amusing to tho committee, but not at all pleas
ant to Mr. Shipherd.
He said ho realized all that ho oxpoctod to

Ho was asked If any Senator was a holder ot

but as usual tho witness wouldn't say whetbor

"Yes," said Judge Wilson, "after this Inves

Tho committoo will hold a meeting for con

A caucus ot Republican Representatives was

among which were tho Tariff Commission
bill, tho contested election casos and tiro man

session, A strict Injunction ot secrecy pre
vails among mombors, but enough has trans
pired to warrant the statement that resolu

action In all the Important matters which
are pending. It was ascertalaed that by Mon
day next llio majority will havo all Its
members present, with possibly ono or two ox.
coptlons. The resolutions reforrod to favor 11
o'clock for the hour ot meeting hereafter aud
pro-, Ida that night eosslons shall bo held whon
practicable; that tho Tariff Coinmtsslou bill
shall be passed as soon as tho debato thereon

Up 10 tho hour of going to press Capttln
Howgite, who so gently took log ball on Thurs
day night last, had not notHlod tho pollco ot
his whoreabouts. In fact. It Is hardly bellerod
that ho will. Every fellow ono meets on tho
streets has a theory ns to whoro tho Captain
has gone. Per Instance, ono man wilt contend
that ho knows that tho Captain 19 new sailing
toward sunny Spnin, whllo nnolher Is equally
certain that ho Is hiding In tho underbrush
of Maryland or Virginia, and yet another
thinks tho fugitive Captain has not loft tho
city at all, but Is socretod hero by some ot his
frlonds lnordor to give htm an opportunity to
Jump tho town when tho wind blows over.
Then the "Smatt Alock" will come hpandsay,
"Oh, tho pollco nro cognlrant ot Ilowgato's
whereabouts, and will capture him whon tho
proper tlmo nrrlves." 'Theories, howover, aro
cheap, but U10 question Is, "Whoro is Mow

Thero wns scarcely n man who could bo soon
on tho street this morning who did notes
press satisfaction at tho oscapo of Howgato.
The unlvcrenl sympathy Boomed to bo with
him, for tho ronton, probably, that ho had not
been treated as an ordinary nrlsonor should
be that is, that tho authorities who, although
boasting that thoy had sufficient evldenco to
convict, did not contomplato trying tho caso

Tho pollco authorities of Baltimore, as well

I'. If. Wnrd Suspected of Secretin;;
When Trank K. Ward awoko this morning
and looked out of his wlodow ho saw a silent
and apparently Immovable man on tho other
side of tho Btroct, but with eyes dlrectod
straight on tho Aldorney premlsos. Men had
looked that way before, and no thought was
ghen to it. But whon Mr. Ward found another
man looking through from a lot on 1'ourth
street, with a focus on the Aldorney, and Of-
ucer rat u'liaro Keeping tuo lamp-post
straight on tho Third aud D street cornor, by
using It as a ramrod rfor his back, whllo his
oyes centered on Aldornoy, and a fourth
watcher abovo, toward R streot, ho concludod
thatsomobody was well under survolllanco,
but who It might bo ho was In Ignoranco.
That was soon removed by Deputy Marshal
Williams waiting upon him and staling that
ho had como there to look for Captain IIow
gatc, whom ho had reason to suspoct was
Mr. Ward denied tho tlghtot an officer to
enter his premises without being armed with
Bomo legal authority, but as ho did not wish
any improper construction placed upon his
refusal, he gavo tho Doputy Marshal full per
mission to tratel from floor to nttto of tho
bouse, nnd, to render what asslstanco possible,
Mr. Wnrd went along. It was well that ho did,
for Mr. Williams would havo had somo troublo
In gottlng through. Tho prlvato residence
and AlJcrncyaro connected by a number ot
wayB,only known to tho Initiated.
Tho Deputy Matshal was conductod from
placo to place, in and out of many cham
bers, by many routes, through cheoo
houses into tho buttery, bang into nu lmmonso
lcfrlgcrntor, then back Into tho dairy, sleep
ing and eating apartments of tho employes,
down through tho granaries ami stable de
partment, aud finally landing Mr. Williams on
tho street without Captain Uowgato or a sight
of his coattalls.
The Deputy Marshal caino to tho conclusion
that fiom ail that ho had soon tho fuglllto
could bo secreted thoro if Mr. Ward was s 9 dis
posed, and that It would tako fifty men to find
him, but ho was Batlsflod that Captain Uow
gato was not there hidden. Tho nota that had
been rccelvod nt tho Marshal's office making
such a statement ho thought sprung front ono
ot two sources. It either came from ono of tho
enemies of tho Aldorney nnd was done to annoy
Mr. Ward, or It might bo a neat llttlo dodgo
of tho writer to recelvo public notlco. Of ono
tiling mo Deputy Jiaisnai is certaiu, una tnat
Is that Mr. W ard Is tho boss dairyman ot tho
District, and that a class of croam from tho
dairy is a drink for tho gods.
A New Turn In llio Allegheny Post
The Allegheny postofflco fight continues to
grow, and In fact It might bo said that It has
reached tho magnltudo that usually charac
terizes tho squabblo mcldoutal to tho appoint
ment ot a postmaster ot a "real" city Now
York, Philadelphia, Doston. Ac. Last night
Wlllord's Uotel was tho bccuo ot a small
sized row botween tho Hon. Thomas M. flayno
uuu ainjor nrupiB, me maiwari canaruaio lor
postmaster ot Allegheny. Tho Major ap
proached tho Hon. Thomas, and said lu effect
that tho Hon. Thomas, by giving his support
to ono Ogden, wns going against tho wishes of
his constituents, nnd ho therefore began to
berato tho Hon. Thomas.
Had It not been for tho prcsoncootfilonds
tho two eminent Alloghonlans might possibly
havo dono moro than to ongago In a llttlo
harmless chin music. Tho light ovor this
postoffico has narrowed down into a sort ot a
Kilkenny ono, and tho Hon. sontor Senator
from Pennsylvania has entirely waslrod his
hands of the wholo affair, and has refused to
tako any part In It. Howover, It might bo
said lu this connection that Major Kropps,
who Is tho only recognized candldato for tho
office, Is far ahead of his competitors, and ox
pocts bis appointment in a few days.
Tiik air is tilled with rumors to-day con
cerning tbo important chaugos lit tho Treas
ury Department. No satisfaction as regards
their truth can bo obtalnM from tho officials
calculated to know. Ono of tho rumors Is that
Chief Clork Power Is to exchange places with
Mr. Daskara, chief ot tho Division ot Public
Moneys; another that AppolntmontClorkUut.
lor Is to bo mado chief clork, and Mr, rower
transferred to chief ot tbo Loan Division In
placo ot Mr. Flotcbor, and that Major Clark,
chief ot tho Itevenuo Marino Borvlco, Is to bo
mado appointment clerk; another that Mr. C,
K. Coon, or tho Loan Division, Is to bo mado
pa lng teller ot tho cash room.
Subsequent inquiry at tho Treasury Depart
ment shous that thcro Is no truth whatever lu
tho abovo rumors, so far as the appolutmont
clerk Is concerned Ho is to romatu where iro
is. That is lu accordance with tho doslro ot
tho President and Socrotary Folgor, w ho ap
preciate his usefulness lu his present posi
tion, It was also ascertained that thero Is to
lie a change In tho office ot chief clork. Major
Power Is .to bo transferred to somo other
office, but which Is not positively known. Tho
most favorable story Is that ho will oxchango
