CIRCUIT COURT. HAWAII.
J. B. Conev, sworn, fays : I lire la Hilo,
and am Sheriff of1 Hawaii. I was present
on the 23tli of last October, at Lehnuia. la
North Kona, when the body of R. 11. Neville,
and a body supposed tu be thai of Kama),
were dns up. I hare no very distinct recol
lection about the body; think It was nearly
dug up belorel cot there; the body was, I
think, two or three feet under rrround. Mr.
Parke, Dr. Lee, Moses Barrett, Kamalo, and
j others, were present at the time. I did not
j Darticnlarly Inspect tbe body; It was nrollen
I and mulling badly; face arid head considerably
Cross-examlmUoi. The lanal was the
nearest building tul the grave; distant from
100 to 130 feet; ratter over that distance;
can't be very posiHre. Disinterment had
mostly taken place S hen I got there. Med
ical examination was held in my presence by
Drs. Lee and GuiickS Tbe body was partially
stripped; I did not particularly examine tbe
Dr. Lec, sworn, dtposed : I reside In La
haina, Maul; am madical officer of the Board
ol Health; am a practicing physician; have
been practicing medicine eixteen years; was
educated at Clncinnii, Ohio, at the Physical
and Medical College of Ohio. I have had 1
tbe usual experience in examining dead j
bodiee, besides experience In the army. I
was patent on tbe 25th of last October, at !
the disinterment oi tue ooay oi a native, on
the croundl called Kaona's Camp, in North
Kona, Island of Hawaii; it was said to be
Leuuula. bat I don't know. It was on bun
day morning. Mr. Coney, Marshal Parke,
Governor Domini, and others, were present,
Do not know the uerson Knnialo by name:

QUI HIIUW , CUUIU (KJHlb IUCUI UUU IICIP
moved the; earth and slones from the body;
found it tvo and a hair feet below the sur
face, hhiiron left side: right leg under him;
hands crossed on his bread, his body bound
with withes of bark; no coffin or mats; ap
carentlr thrown in without prenaratlon :
clothed in dark pants aud flannel shirt of
purple and black colors. It was ratnera
stout person, but not very tail; hair cut
rather short, more so than common; bis
face so beaten I could not have discovered
who it was. (A woman present said it was
her husband, Kama!.) After we had dug
away the earth, turned the body over, and
had a si"ht of his face. The nose was beaten
flat ; eyee beaten out of the sockets, and flat
with the face; bead was beaten, every bone
in the skull so soil that it moved like a soft
mass; cuticle was beaten off back portion of
the head ana loreueaa. ine ooay was con
siderably swollen; smelt very naoiy.
though it had been buried a week or there
abouts; lelt ear was partly cut off, hanging
on the neck. Upon stripping down the
shirt, there was a very large contusion on the
breast. I examined the body professionally,
to find out the cause of death. Tbe wounds
were evidently caused by blunt weapons,
during life. From the fact that tbe sklu was
so little torn, except as it was beaten off, it
Is evident that the instrument employed was
c heavy one, and used n ith great force. Every
portion of the head was beaten; e cry por
tion of the skull was struck, and smashed
into small pieces, like a mat3 of jelly; also
the portion of the lace about tbe nose and
eyes was beaten, the same as the back of the
head and skull. 1 du not think it was with
a club, or it would have loft the skull in
larger pieces; I do not think it was a stone,
or it would have cnt and torn the skin more,
and left ragged edges; think it was an instru
ment that crushed at every blow, and lelt the
parts evenly mashed. It was an iron instru
ment, with square edges. I do not think
any other instrument could have doueltso
evenly, unless great time and eare were U6ed
to do it. The bodv had been dead not over
ten days, nor under tire days. The cause of
death was the wounds on tbe head; it is my
opinion that the party died from those
Cross-examination. The no6e was cut by
smashing, not with anything sharp. The
only portion of the head that seemed to tie
cut was the ear. It certainly was not a knife
that cut the nose, which was more ragged
than any other portion of the body. A small
stone must have been nsed with a great deal
of force; I do not think it was a stone; It
was a heavy instrument. 1 do not tnniK it
was a gnn-stock; a gun-stock would hnve
broken much sooner than tbe sknli. There
was a mark arnnnd tbe neek, as though made
by a cord; no cnt on the neck; nothing re
markable, only a slight contusion. OI tbe
fractures, there was nothing that could be
called such; all smashed; no continuity;
did not hold together; the top of the head
fell back like a bladder. The flesh did not
come off, but the cuticle came off tbe back
of the head and hands. I do not think I
conld have recoguized him from his head ;
r;rhaps I could from other parts of tbe body,
do not think those wounds could have been
inflicted after death, for there Is a toughness
In live flesh which does not exist alter death.
There is very little flesh on the skull. I think
the same force nsed on a dead body would
have torn tbe scalp clear Into tbe bone. This
was not the case; scalp was not torn to tbe
bone. I said the upper skin was beaten off.
If those wounds had been given to tbe body
after it was cold and lifeless, it would
have bad a different aspect. If the wounds
had been inflicted ten minutes after the
breath and pulse had erased, there would
have been but little difference; tbe flesh
would not have lost the toughness of lile.
Alona, sworn, deposeth: I am Alona, and
live at Kona, Hawaii. I was present at the
disinterment of tbe dead bodies at Lehuula;
It was on a Sabbath that the body of Kamai
was disinterred; I went with the-wifeof the
deceased; wc went first, and Air. Coney and
party came afterwards; Dr. Lee came with
them; it was the25th of Ott.,lc6S; w ben I
got there, I dug up I he dody of Kama! ; it was
burled about an arm's lemnb under-ground ; I
recognized the body as being that of Kamai;
bad on a red and black striped palaka (shirt)
and blue woolen pants; in the pants were
three dollars. The body was lying on its
right side, (.witness showing tbe position);
when we bad disinterred tbe body, Dr. Lee
came and searched for wounds; I was present
when he examined the body, and saw tbe
wounds as well as be did. One wonnd was
in the neck, and tbe nose was cut; the head
was all soft ; the forehrad n as broken, the
same as a soft bat. I did go there on tbe 19th
of Oct; went with Kamai, to buy hides.
"Were yon there tbe day Neville was kill
ed?" This question was objected to by the
counsel fur defense, and tbe Court ruled that
the witness need not answer.
Witness continued: I did go there on the
morning of 'he day of tbe disturbance; went
with Kamai, the man wbo is now dead; I
only went once with Kama); we were to
gether when tbe disturbance commenced;
we went to buy bides. When we got to Ka
wanui, we sold our bides to the Chinamen;
after selling them, we beard that Neville was
going to Kaona's camp, and then we went to
Wrglht's, where the men were assembled,
and stood with them. As we stopped there,
we beard that certain persons were going to
be taken by palapala sooplis, (warrants of
Tbe counsel for defense objected to any
testimony relating to Neville's death being
admitted, as It was no part whatever, of tbe
res gvsta; L e., the murder of Neville. The
Court did not see how it was tbe part
of res guts, but If proved tbat It tended to
wards show ing any motive or inducement on
the part of defendants, the account of tbe
morning's transactions could not be given.
I went to the camp of Kaona's party on
tbe morning or October 19th, with Mr. Ne
ville. I went to the camp because I was or
dered to- do so by Neville, but he did not
order me to Sgbt with them. Neville was
killed there. I went with Kamai, again, the
day of NeTille'i death, by the order of Bn
pake, to try and get the body: it was at
Wright's place where we received tbe orders
to go and recover the body; a great many pf
os went. It was in the afternoon tbat Knpa
kee asked ns if we would not go and get the
body of Neville, and we told htm we would
try, and toon after we started; Ksmil was
with us; Kupakee assembled us together, and
we marched quite close to Kaona's place; be
told us not to be afraid, but try and get tbe
body, which we all agreed to do. Some of
our party went back as we drew near tbe
camp; we went close together till we got
quite near their lanal within about a hun
dred yards of It, and then we stood and look
ed at'Kuona's party. I don't know exactly
bow mauy there were of ns. Kamai was
close to me. In front. Where we stood, was
on the north side of tbe lanal, but we could
not see all tbe Kaonaltes: tbe only person
we recoguized, was Kamaka, who was on the
north side of the lanal, on horseback, (witness
laentines tnc prisoner, tiamaKa,) ne was on
a Bpautsn saddle, and had a rope In his band
Alter being urged by Kupakee, we went on,
in a rather hesitating manner, as wc were
afraid some of ns might get killed. Kama!
went on In advance of tbe rest, aud I follow
ed him; then Kamaka tried to entice us by
irolng forward and back. At this time, the
haoualtes came out trora their place of con
cealment Irom inside of tbe lanal, and wc
all fled, Kamai and myself included. 1 did
not tee Kamai at the tinte he wot caught by Ka.
tnaKa; never saw nainat anve mice men; 1
did not return tbat day to Kaona's camp.
Cross examined: From tbat time, to tbe
day he was disinterred, I never saw Kamai;
I Know It was be, because he did not return
to his bouse. Botb of his legs were doubled
up; on tbe left side of his neck was a long
wound, anont a nngers length; it migm
have been cut with a knife. The lower part
of the nose was altogether missing. I can't
say how many men went with Kupakee, but
tuere were a great many pernaps not over a
hundred. We went down at random, not in
a line; nupaKee was last oi an, ana an none-
back; Kamai and I were on foot; don't
know how many were on horseback. Wc
did nut carry any coffin with us; wc went to
get tue noay oi -Neville, vie uaa sucks and
stones, and some guns: Kamai had no nun
when he started, but he got one before he
readier! tue lanal a dounie barrelled gun;
I hud nothing In my bands. At that time,
those who bad guns, got ready to shoot Ka
maka' s horse: did not hit the horse, and did
not see whether Kamaka was hit. Kamaka
was nit in tue inreueaa.j 1.0 k a was wun us;
don't know whether be had a gnn. or wheth
cr he lilt any one, because Kama! and I were
separated from bini. I was looking at Ka
maka, tiul did not see tbat be was hit in the
face, or blood flowing, if I bad seen him
snot, would nave seen nim tail irom Ills
horse, but he turned his horse and chased us.
No one sang out or hurrahed tbat lie was hit.
Kupakee told us to go ahead, but Kamaka
chased us at tbe time, and we Did. Kama'
fired both barrels, and did not load again;
after Oritur his irun. he threw stoues and then
fled ; afterwards I went aud got the gun ; as
I went to get It, Kamaka and the others were
going up the till I, and tbe Eaoualtes were
running alter them.
Examination of witness by Kaona: The
guns were only fired once, and at the same
time; Kamaka was standing at tbe lanal
urging us on, ana not alter we ned; six per-
suns had guns, three of whom were Kamai.
Kalpolcimana and Kekanlabao. Kupakee
tola us to go ana get the noay oi Seville,
which was In the midst of Kaona's people.
I would not have said we were afraid unless
we actually had fear: Kamaka had the whole
party of Kaona with him; he was the only
one on horseback, and the otners in the lanal
were stoning us; he had a rope in ills hand,
and was whirling It; we were afraid of being
seized and Killed; l was on loot.
Kaoiwi, sworn, deposed: I HveatHalua
loa. iu North Kona. Hawaii: I know Kama!
he was my brother-in-law; I was one of those
who helped to dig up the body; Coney, Par
ker and others were there, and told me to re
move tbe dirt; it was tbe dead body of Ka
mai which I dug up; I knew him when he
was alive, and knew that It was his body; no
oilier oodles were lying mere at tnc lime,
except Neville's. Kamai had on a black and
red striped shirt and blue pants; the hair was
pot long. I lifted tbe body out of the grave,
the lens were bent, and tbe bauds br bis side.
I examined his face, it was not ail decompos
ed ; nis nose ana ear were cut.
Attorney General questioned witness, who
answered : The body of Kamai was a short
distance from Neville's; I was acquainted
wun -Neville, ivaona ooiectca to any tcstl
mnny being allowed regarding tbe death of
.Neville, court ruled that the prosecution
could not go any farther in the examination
relating to Neville's body.
Loka, sworn, deposed : My name is Loka,
I live at Napnpo, South Kona. Hawaii. I
went to Kaona's camp on the I9th of last-October,
with Kupakee and a large party ; went
in tbe morning, when tbe foreigner died, and
also in the afternoon. We had all been com
manded to aid in keeping the King's peace.
When we went the second time, there were a
great, many of us, five of whom had guns ;
we were told to go anil get the body of Ne
ville, which was In tbe lanal or Kaona.
Question by Attorney Ueneral : What was
the rumor relating to Neville? Objected to
by counsel for defense. Court granted that
witness might state why guns were taken.
Witness : Neville's body was with Kaona's
party ; their place was in the lanai ct Lehn
nia, Kainaliu ; the lanai was built lengthways
with tbe shore; Kaona and ail bis party oc
cupied it; there were a great many of then,,
don't know bow many. The plaeo where Ne
ville's body laid was outside of the lanai; he
died in the morning, and the reason for tbe
second expedition was to try and get tbe body.
Kupakee organized the second expedition on
the bill side, on the government road; don't
know bow' many there were of U9, when we
went in the afternoon. As we drew near tbe
lanai, we fired our guns ; there was powder
and shot in them; we saw Kamaka on horse
back, with a lasso in his hand. When onr
guns were filed, the Kaonaites chased us, and
we turned and fled. I and Kamai, who is
dead, were together, and fled to the right of
the lanal, till we came to a wall, some distance
off; Kamai got on tbe wall, and it fell, and at
that time he was lassoed around the neck ;
tbat is ail I saw, as I fled and joined my party
on the hill.
Cross examined : Kamai was on the wall
and in the act of jumping over it when it fell,
and be was then caught. Kamaka was on
horseback a red horse, with a large white
face, which Is now in Coney's possession. The
wall was abont four feet high; some things
were planted on one side of tbe fence, belong
ing to Kaona; I turned for a moment and
looked, and can swear that tbe noose fell on
Katnai'a neck; he was in the act of jumping
over tbe wall and lost his balance; he had a
gnn iq his hand, and I had one in mine ; did
not see him take off the rope ; when he was
lassoed, the gun bad fallen from his hand.
On another day, when we went to Kaona's
place, we round the gun inside the enclosure ;
the gun fell into tbe yard; I showed the oth
ers the place where it was. I had a gun, and
fired it at the Kaona party, but did not hit
any of them; I did not shoot Kamaka, I am
positive. We all fired our guns at the same
time ; we were ordered to do so by Kupakee,
for the purpose of frightening them, bat not
to kill any one. We had been ordered. In tbe
name of the King, to go and get the body of
Neville, and to take our gnns to frighten them.
When we fired, none of the Kaona party were
hit; no guns were loaded again, for we all
fled ; the order was given to fire, but we were
to frightened that we did not mind the order;
we were ordered at tbat tine to go close up
and fire at the tame time ; no order was given
on the field to fire; that I am aware of;
I taw the lanai of Kaona in front of me, and
lifted my gnn and fired ; we were more than
ten fathoms distant from tbe lanai ; my gun
was a single barrel one, and I fired only onee.
There was a gun pointed at Kamaka by some
of onr party, but not by Kama! ; he did not fire
at, or hit him ; Kamaka was on the same tide
or the lanai at we were, and whirling bit latto
at the time, in a threatening manner. I did
not tee any blood on him at the time he las
toed Kamai; hit face was tarred, and I could
seeit, and cannot swear there was no blood on it.
There was so scattered firing; Kaona'f party
caued nt, and we turned and fled ; tome of
our party turned and fledf Kupakea alto fled,
and was clear behind the rest, I heard no
hurrahing on onr side juit after' the firing, or
at any other time. Loka, Kamai, Aawabua,
Knipolemanu and Kekaulahto, were those
who bad guns. The authorities and tbe citi
zens commanded us, in the name of the King,
to take those guns. Neville was dead then,
and the commands were given by those who
were his deputiet.
By the Court : What frightened you to ?
Kaona's folks came out with sticks and
stones, and were chasing ut. I do not know
which side had the greatest number. I was
the only one near Kamai ; they were all going
Kaona asked why Kamai was so far in the
rear? Witness answered : Because he was not
so fast as I was.
Kupoohini, sworn : Lives at Ilolualoa.
North Kona, Hawaii. The disturbance at
Kaona's camp was on the 19th of October,
1868. I went with Kupakee. We assem
bled at Lehuula on the 19th, after dinner. I
do not know jast who those were. Kupakee,
Kamai, and Kamaka the prisoner. We started
from mauka to go makai. I went with Kupa
kee and the multitude. I did not mix in with
them, but in the rear. I held myself in reserve.
But the prisoners were not caught, and we ran
off. As our men turned to flee. Kamaka our-
tued on horse back, with a lasso. I did not
see Kamai flee in that direction. Two men
called oat to Kamaka the prisoner, "Ka
maka e I here is the man." At tbat time, I
turned around and returned. I did see Kama
ka dragging a man on the ground. The man
dragged was Kamai. Kamaka dragged Ka
mai, till he came to tbe richt side of the lanai.
where a road led, and there was whero Kama!
was left. Two men struck Kamai then, don't
anuw wno. une man came from tbe lanai,
and struck Kamai with the blunt part of an
axe. Don't know his name. That was all I
taw, and I returned home. I did not count
the number or strokes given with the axe, bat
be was quite a time doing it. Kamai was
some distance from the lanai, on the North
side at Lehaula, at Kainaliu. Kona Hema Ha

rvamai iook piace. i aid not observe on what
part or body the strokes fell.
Cross examination : We went after Neville's
body. We did go down to catch the whole of
Kaona s people. We did not eo nrenared to
do so, AU our means of preparation were our
nanas. i aid not nave a gun, there were a
very few who took guns, did not count tho
number who had guns. Those who bad guns
were clear in front. I was in the rear; I did
not get very close to the Lanul : I was tome
distance off, on a slight elevation at the time of
tue lirst charge ; J did not run. At that time
all our party had gone up the hill ; I did not
see Loka, as there were brush, kakui, brambles
and coffee, near to where Loka and hit party
had fled to. There was but little underbrush
where Kamaka was dragging Kamai ; I should
say fifty fathoms off, I did nut measure; I
was alone in my place. Our party was tun
ning in tbe direction of the hill I uas standing
on ; I did not go any nearer ; I saw what they
were doing. We went two abreast only, but
one line in going down. The party went on
down, I remained in my place. I do
not know the distance from whero they
halted to where the lanai was ; Kamaka came
out and tempted them. Our party tired their
guns ; I saw them fire at Kamaka', but did not
see him hit ; I did not see bim fall from his
horse; I am well acquainted with him, he is
my friend, and therefore I know him well.
Kaona and party were in the lanai when our
party rested. It was on tbe Kobala side or
the lanai, I saw Kamai beiog drugged, to
wards the lanai. I saw rour persons near Ka
mai when he was being dragged. Whero Ka
mai was lassoed was a rence ; I saw tbe rence
through the kukui trees. The horse was run
ning with the rope made fast to the logger
head. I'm sure or It. When Kama! was las
toed, I did not see any or our party run tbat
way. There were none or Kupakee's party
near at the time Kamai was beinir dragged. I
saw tho lasso rail ; Kamai bad no gun in bis
hand ; I taw no one near Kamai.
Kaona questioned tbo witness: and ho
answered, I know there was powder in the
guns; I saw no shot pouch on any or them.
There was no gun fired from the breech ; The
guns were fired from us ; there were no bullets,
only powder; I do not know who loaded the
guns ; all I know is the firing ; I heard no
orders given about the loading of the guns.
Aiapai, swurn ; x.tro at Kuamoo, Jiorth
Kona Hawaii; I remember the day or disturb
ance, on a Monday the 19th day of October
1863 ; I went to the camp in the morning ; I
saw Mr. Neville inthemorning, we wentdown
together ; he was struck with a stone, and fell
down; he did not come back with ut. There
was a party formed in the evening, to go to
the camp ; I do not know the reason of tho
forming; I went three times. The second
time I went alone, got near to the camp or
nsuua uuu party, a laiaeu wun Kamaaa,
Kaelemanu and Lumaawe: I told them
to return the body or Neville. They re
fused to give it up. They said they had
already given their ideat to Oreenweil.
They told me to go home, and ' take care
or your life, your wife and children, and all
your relation! ; and if tbe police comes after
you to assist the government, then don't come
bacit. unly these three were present, who
talked with me : I then returned. There were
certain persons getting ready to go down ;
Kupakee and others with him. We met in a
road that leads from Napoopoo to Kiholo,
Kupakee and others; I don't know their
names. They were making preparations to go
and get the body of Neville ; some had guns.
Kupakee told tbein not to discbarge their guns
at random, 'butyoumay fire when they come."
The people who bad the guns asked, "If
wc are resisted, how shall we fire?" Kupa
kee answered, "If there Is a man on horse
back, shoot tbe horse." "If we shoot the
man in the legs, bow is tbat!" Kupakee
answered: "I do not know what It would
be in that case." We then started. As we
went, Kamai, tbe dead man, and others with
bim. were on tu: right side 6f the lanal: we
and others were on the left side. I taw Ka
maka come ont from tbe right aide of lanal
on horseback, whirling a lasso. At tbat
time, tbe gnns on tbe right side of tbe lanal
were got ready for shooting the horse; they
were tired, bnt tbe horse was not hit. At
that time, some of the Kaonaites approached
from tbe left side of the lanai, and some
gnns were flred by our'party on the lelt side
to frighten tbem back. Tbey did not turn
back, but chased ns and stoned ns. When
we saw tbat, we stoned tbem. I was on
horseback; I bad my stone tied to tbe end or
a string, tbat I might haul It back again. As
I saw ourparty were being worsted, 1 Jumped
off my horse, and got ready to resist Kao
na's attack. When I saw we conld not re
sist, and tbat all our party bad fled, and tbat
I conld be or no use, I fled, also. At I fled,
I saw Kamai, and others with him, maintain
ing their position. After going a few fath
oms, I looked back again, and saw tbat tbey
bad tamed and fled Kamai and those with
him. I did not see Kama! after that. 1 saw
Kamaka after that ; ho waa dragging some
thing; I do not know what it was; the rope
was fast to tbe loggerhead. Kamaka was on
horseback, riding towards tbe lanai: It ap
peared to be something heavy be was drag
ging; tbe rope was drawn tight. We ral
lied together, and found Kamai misting. I
hare never seen him alive since.
Cross Examined : I do not know how
many there were of ns, our minds were un
settled ; there were quite a number, not over
fifty, I do not know bow many went in tbe
morning, there were fewer in the afternoon.
I saw six gum on the bill. Kama! and other
bad the gunt. They did sot carry powder;
or thot poaches. Other parties loaded and
banded the guns to theCy, they were common
gnnt, but t do not Know whether they were
tingle or double barrels. Twat abead : Kupa
kee and others were in the rear on horseback,
there was no leader. I was not leader of the
first gang ; no one give the order when .we
fired the guns ; they were sot all find at the'
same time. Tbe first firing was st Kamaka't
horse, they did not fire again; there was so
powder ie. After the right tide fired, then
the left fired ; the gam were divided from one
side- to the other. Tho two irdet were dis
tinct from each other. Knpakee ira'
way abead he said nothing, he did sot say go
ahead. Gnns were the" only weapons I saw ;
I saw no sticks or knivet in tie hands
or anv one standing near me. I did not
seethe right wing, was on tbe left wing. Lo
ka wat on the right tide. The parties who
firtt fired at Kamaka's horse, were on our right
side on the Kohala tide. This division of
ours wat mankaof the lanai; tbey did sot go
to the makai tide of the lanai. Those on oar
right division were some distance, but those
on my left I was near to, and taw the firing ; I
did not tee any one hit. I did not tee Ka
mai of Kaona's party hit. I picked up stones,
but did not throw bat once. I wished to
get another stone; but at X grasped, it I
taw all my company had .gone; to I went
alto. I fled on foot, ail bad lost my horse.
I heard no report of a gnn after I had fled ; I
dont know wbo stood with Kamai. There
were more than ten with Kamai. At I taw
they were picking up ttones and throwing
them, about the distance from whrar;rtooct
to the bau tree by the road. There wat a
ttone wall to tbe Kohala tide of where Ka
mai stood. I turned a little while after and
taw them running; I did not tee tbem after
wards. There were indigo busies, kukni
trees, brambles, breadfruit trees, i.e.. on the
Kohala side of where Kamai stood.' Wheal
last saw Kamai he had no gun.
I know Kupoohiwi; I did not distinguish
him there. I did tee Aalona ; he was near
the place, and was running away ; lam not cer
tain whetberhe waswitb Kama! or not. Iknow
that Loka was with Kamai. He is the only
one that I am sure was with Kamai. Tbe
second time I went down was afterdinner. It
was in the afternoon. I am tbe only one who
went to tbe lanai ; others were at various dis
tances. I called to Kamaka and the other
two; I asked for tbe body of Neville; these
three were between me and the lanai.
The Race For Office. I was speaking
to tbe distinguished Senator from Illinois, one
day of this week, upon the moral effect of up
setting all the desks of office every fouryears
"We shall be broken np," said Senatot
Trumbull, " unless some adminstratlon will set
the example, or some legislation will compel
it, of making the price of offico good behavior
only. The scenes and the scramble of the last
month have been disgraceful, at yon know.
But you do not probably know the effect of
thit periodical rotation npon Congress. For
example, I want the Secretary or tbe Treasury
to give my man.an office. I go up to tbe De
partment and wait there for an audience, long
or short, at tbe case may be. The Secretary
tpeaks encouragingly. Next day I go np
again, and he is not quito so sanguine. It it
by this steady persistence that offices are ob
tained here- Not merit, nor recommendation,
nor impulse, but ding-donging obtains the
offices. Well, the Secretary has a financial
policy, perhaps. How can I, as a Senator,
speak independently of his policy while my
man is in a state of suspense. Thus, the ex
ecutive part of the Government paralyses In a
great degree tbe legislator's independence.
We most reform this altogether, or the poli
tical state or tbe country will be degraded be
I asked the Senator irhe was kept verybui
ily employed in legislative butinets.
"Yes," he answered; "tbe duties of a Sena
tor are extremely onerous. We used to adjourn
from Thursday until Monday and get through
all business promptly enough. Then tbe bet
ter social enjoyments were available to ns.and
we had leisure for reading, conversation and
thought. So manifold have the functions of
the central Government become that all our
time is occupied now. Thousands or things
which were formerly disposed or in tbe States
or in tbe Executive Department, come opto
Congress now. By Saturday night I am very
weary." Correspondence Chicago Tribune.
