ANOTHER DAY OF THE PAGE IM-
The Sixth Article Still Under Considera-
tionCounsellor Losey Gets Hold of a
Tartar In K. A JonesA Question by
Respondent That Forces a Secret Session
"With the Usual ResultAdjournment to
At 9 '30 yesterday morning the high court of
impeachment resumed its sitting with fewer
Senators in their seats than at any time since
the commencement of the trial. For the first
time, too, Judge Page, the respondent was not
in attendance. The event of the day was the
cross-examination of Hon R. A. Jones by
Mr. Losey, of counsel. I was in fact a reali
zation of the truth of the old couplet, "When
Greek meets Greek then comes the tug of war."
The court, especially the lawyers, enjoyed the
encounter greatly, eagerly watching the attack
of the wily questioner, and the parry of the
no less alert witness, the combatants them
selves apparently taking equal satisfaction in
B. A. JONES
was the first witness at theimpeaohment trial
yesterday. testified was present at the
March term of court 1877, Heard a portion of
the charge of the judge with reference to the
treasurer and auditor. The judge said he had
been informed of some matters it would be
their duty to investigate, the Judge said if
what he had heard was true the treasurer ought
to be indicted. Alluding to the conduct
alleged against the auditor, the judge said if
true it was a subject of indictment or present
ment. The judge charged the jury in relation
to the treasurer three times at that term of
court. The second time the jury handed the
judge a paper, when he said the facts about the
treasurer's office were open and notorious, and
constituted a felony. Baid then the jury
had nothing to do with intent, the fact of the
violation i the law was all they had to do
with. The third time the charge was to the
same general effect. Th judge seemed to be
extremely excited. When Judge Mitchell pre
sided he took the calendar, and perhaps called
a ciimmal calendar, when County Attorney
Wheeler informed him that the criminal calen
dar had been continued to the general term.
To Mr. LoseyCharge to the jury was noth
ing unusual. Charge was not general but spe
cific Did not hear the jury ask for instruc
tions. If the record showed instructions were
asked for, either the record was wrong or his
memory. Was there as the attorney of Ing
mundson. First knew that Ingmundson had
been in the jury room until the judge charged
the jury on that point. Know that such at
tendance would vitiate the indictment. Ha
not talked to Ingmundson about such visit,
and have not since. Prior to Page being judge
my sentiments were very hostile to him
While he has been judge have never practiced
before a judge who has tieated me more fairly.
Senator J. B. Gilfillan asked the witness the
following question: Please describe particu
larly and definitely the appearance, manner,
and tone of Judge Page in charging the grand
jury respecting matter*? in the case of the
county treasurer and county auditor at each of
the three several times as to which yon have

he talked loud. The Becond time the same

form. Third time. Well I don't know how to

but I don't know another to supply it
To Mr. LongPage is a positive man, decid

Also charged if the commissioners sanctioned
the proceedings, they should also be indicted.
His language was loud and his general appear

ed it not a piopei question.

testified he was a member of the grand jury,
March term, 1877, acting as clerk. [Mr. Ciane's
testimony as to the charge of the judge aB to
iriegularities, and the proceedings, substanti
ally corresponded with that of previous wit-
ness.] Page called at my place in July after
court adjourned, and after the bar committee
meeting. Page spoke about an affidavit, and
said if ht had known Ingmundson nad been
before the jury he would have been more severe
than he was.
Cross examinedKnew Ingmundson was in
the grand jury room but was not instru
mental in getting him there. Di not hear
the judge charge upon that point. Think the
judge charged the jury twice in reference
to the treasurer's office, jury did not ask to
be discharged until they were finally dis
Mr. Losey asked the witness as to the testi
mony upon the grand jury in relation to the
Clayton town order, showing that Ingmundson
knew of the questionable transaction he was
being a party to
Mr. Clough of managers objected, first, be
cause the question was not proper in cross ex
amination, and second because the secrets of a
grand jury could not be divulged by a member.
Mr. Davis, of counsel, argued as to the ad
missability of the question, that the present
trial was one of the exceptional cases provided
for in which testimony giving proceedings be
fore grand juries can be divulged.
Mr. Campbell interrupting, suggested that
argument might be avoided at this time by
allowing the Senate to decide as to the first
objection, that it was not cross-examination.
Mr. DavisI call the honorable gentleman
order. I do not consent to the interruption. I
am now answering the second objection, but
before I get through I will answer the first.
Mr. Davis then proceeded with his arguments,
quoting at length from numerous authorities
support of his position.
Mr. Campbell, of managers, answered Mr.
Davis at length, taking the ground that the
question could not be answered without expos
ing the secrets of the grand jury in violation of
Upon motion of Senator Nelson the Senate
retired to consider the questions involved, and

The Senate spent nearly an hour and a half
in secret session considering the questions in
volved, which were disposed of by the adoption
of the following resolution, offered by Senator
Ordered, that the question proposed by the
respondent is not proper cross-examination.
Sonator Waldron offered the following:
Resolved, That we have no more secret ses
sions forth purpose of considering the admis
sibility of evidence.
Senator Henry gave notice of debate, and the
resolution was laid over.
The court then took a recess until 8 p. M.
Promptly at 3 o'clock the court was called to
order by President Wakefield. Announcement
being made of the action of the court in secret
session, denying the admissibility of respond
ent's question, the cross-examination of Mr.
0. O. OKAXB
was resumed by Mr. Losey. Mr. Coleman was
on the grand jury. When the jury were dis
charged Page took the paper previously sub
mitted and said if the facts were as then stated
the acts constituted an indictable offense, and
the jury had violated their oaths in failing to
so hnd, but the law was such that no grand jury
could stand between crime and its punishment.
Punng tip statement, Pag & &'
jury had been influenced by im
proper motives, then they had violated
their oaths. Hare talked with one of the grand
jury to-day to refresh my memory. Don't
think the judge's tone war loudertthan usual in
delivering the first charge. Can't say his tone
was any louder than usual when he discharged
the jury. More sarcastic than loud. Could
not give the manner. Nobody bat Jndge Page
could do that. It's peculiar to himself. There
was considerable excitement over the Ingmund
son matter. Came into court and reported as
to the auditor's office. Page then said all the
jury had to do was to call the auditor and
commissioner before them, and explain the
matter, and if they would discontinue the
practice, no farther notice need be taken of it.
Sworn, testified lived in Windom, Mower
county. Was a grand juror at the March term,
1877, was present and heard the chargeof Judge
Page, of which he gave his recollection, being
in substance the same as that of the preceding
witnessess. After the charge, Page said we
were an intelligent looking set of
men, and he expeoted we would
do our duty faithfully. When we made the
report Page said he was astonished, and told us
we must investigate, and we retired and drew
up a report statins the facts. When the report
was presented Page said the facts warranted an
indictment, and he could not see why we had
not been done unless we had been bribed, and
that in failing to do so we had violated our
oaths and perjured ourselves. Hi manner was
very indignant, spoke out and thonght he was
Cross-Examination by Mr. LoseyMr. FOBS
said he had not been in court much previous
to that time. Grand jury only asked to be
discharged at the time they were. Have not
made an affidavit. Signed one, but did not
swear to it. I was presented and read to me.
Was in the harvest field. Did not raise my
hand or swear to it. Think the affidavit con
tains a statement of facts as I
then understood it. Mr. A. A.
Harwood furnished the ink in the harvest
field. Did aot see Crandall sign the affidavit
at the time. That portion of the affidavit
about the jury being discharged is not true.
It is not true as stated in the affidavit that the
judge used insulting and abusive language.
Had no talk with Crandall about the affidavit.
Don't recollect what Crandall and Harwood
said they wanted the affidavit for. Found the
facts by the examination, and the court laid
down the law, but did not believe he laid down
correctly as to that point, and so did not bring
in an indictment.
He-directThe jury were in session eleven
days. Were investigating the treasury busi
ness about four or five days. Page spoke to
me about the affidavit. Cameiomy place one
day last August, and wanted djPfto take back
what I said in the affidavit. Then read the
bar committee's report, and asked if I did not
think it correct. I replied I did not. Got out
a pencil to write another affidavit, but I told
him I would think it over.
A. D. WOODABD
was one of the grand jury at the March term
1877, and detailed the charge of Jndge Page
as to irregularities and the proceedings that
followed. testified further that he called
Ingmundson into the presence of the jury at
the suggestion of the foreman, and that Ing
mundson's explanation at that time satisfied
the jury that had done nothing indictable.
When jury reported nothing against the treas
urer Page would get angry, and seemed deter
mined we should not be discharged until we had
found a bill. When we presented a statement
of the facts, he said if the statements made
were true, they constituted an impeachable
offense. His language was very harsh never
heard such language by a man in his place.
Appeared to be very angry.
Cross examined by Mr. LoseyHave signed a
statement in relation to the matter. Never
made an affidavit before a justice of the peace.
A. A. Harwood was present when I signed it.
The signature of the justice is in his own hand
writing. I waB published as an affidavit. Did
go and bring Ingmundson into the grand jury
room. Don't remember that the judge said if
we brought any person whose acts were under
consideration it would vitiate an indictment.
Did not want to avoid finding an indictment.
Had talked it over with other grand jurors.
To the best f my recollection, the court
brought the matter up the second term without
the matter being brought to his attention by
[Mr. Losey then read a statement of witness,
signed by himself, in which he denied the truth
of the statements of the so-called Harwood
affidavit, and that he never signed it in the
presence of a justice, which he acknowledged
as his act.J
W. H. CRANDALL,
the next witness, started in to detail the charge
of Judge Page to the grand jury, when the evi
dence was interrupted by Senator Waite, who
inquired of the management the necessity of
swearing so many witnesses upon that one
point. did not want to interfere, but if not
considered material he did not Bee the propriety
or necessity of presenting the same facts by so
many different witnesses.
Mr. Campbell, of managers, replied that
knowing from the preliminary examination,
that there would be a conflict of testimony on
this point, the prosecution had thought it ma
terial to substantiate the facts as fully as pos
The examination of Mr. Crandall was re
sumed and the entire story, in its length,
breadth and depth, was repeated, with the ad
dition that Judge Page in his charge was very
violent, exhibiting a great deal of anger and
waB not submitted to any cross examina
At this point several Senators manifesting
uneasiness, and some having already left the
room, it was thought best to settle the ques
tion whether there should be an adjournment
over Saturday, which had been talked over by
the Senators among themselves, and Senator
Wheat brought the matter up by moving that
when tho court adjourn it bet 2:30 p. M. on
Senator Nelson offered as an amendment that
the adjournment be to the regular hour to
morrow (to-day), stating that with the large
number of witnesses present he thought the
testimony should at least be completed before
an adjournment was had.
A vote being taken the amendment pre
vailed, yeas 14, nays 11.
Mr. Davis, of counsel, hoped some member
voting in the majority would move a considera
tion of the vote.
Senator Nelson moved the vote be reconsider
ed, when Mr. Davis, by consent, stated as a
fact that respondent, not anticipating that
the tenth article would be sustained, had sum
moned no witnesses upon it that since the
filing of the specifications, there had been no
time for preparation upon that article, and it
was necessary in order to afford him an oppor
tuni ty to interpose a proper defense, that
some little time should be given him and it
had been hoped the court would adjourn over
to Monday for that purpose.
Senator Wait, while not desiring to take any
advantage, thought in view of the large num
ber of witnesses present it was the duty of the
court to proceed as fast as possible. is views
were that it would be better to fiaish the exam
ination up to the tenth article, and then if it
should appear that the interest of the respond
ent demanded more time for preparation,
Mr. Losey, of counsel, said the pressure of
other matters had given no time for consulta
tion, even upon the specifications to the tenth
article, and that the examination going on day
after day, would make it absolutely impossible
to agree upon and prepare a plan of defense.
That article covered a great variety of charges
of the most general character, and if respond
ent was to be given any time for preparation it
ought to be now.
Mr. Campbell, of managers, announced that
probably the tenth article would be reached
in another day's sitting.
Senator Pillsbury was satisfied, if any ad
journment at all was to be taken, that the
present was the best time.
Senator Gilfillan inquired of counsel
if any adjournment was had, if they would be
willing to have three sessions a day afterward.
Mr. LoseyThat would kill counsel.
Mr. DavisI am willing to meet as early as
you may name in the morning, and sit all day,
but I want the night to ga ready for the next
The vote was then taken on the motion to
reconsider, and it was adopted with only two
negative votes, Senators Clough and Wait.
The vote was taken on Senator Wheat's mo
tion, that the adjournment when had be to
Monday afternoon next, at 2:30 o'clock, and
it was carried almost unanimously.
The managers then called in rotation,
Short, John Bowley, and W. S. Root, who tes
tified as to the grand jury proceedings in the
lugmoadjon,' watt**, without affording any
new light upon the matter, counsel not even
submitti ng them to a cross-examination.
Manager Campbell then announced that the
only witness to be examined upon this point
was Mr. Ingmundson, and as it was supposed
bis cross-examination would be lengthy, it was
thought best to adjourn, which was done on
motion of Senator McDonald.

THE THOMSON-DONNELLY INVESTIGATION.
The committee appointed to investigate
the Thomson-Donnelly affair reported as

referred the charges of Inspector Thomson
against G. Donnelly, principal of Sixth
Ward school, hereby subm it the following as
As to the first charge the committee find that
on or about the 10th day of July, 1877, lan
guage of an improper character was used by
said Donnelly in regard to Dr. Hagan, chair
man of the committee on schools. The remarks
were made while on a friendly visit at the
house of Inspector Thomson and his wife in
private conversation and not with the intent
or purpose of being made public. Mr. Tho m
son treated the matter in confidence and did not
acquaint any member of the board or any one
else with the facts. Some days later Mr. Don
nelly stated to Mr. Thompson that he had done
Dr. Hagan injustice in thus expressing hi m
self and said he regretted having used
the language referred to A Mr.
Thomson's suggestion Donnelly called
on Dr. Hagan, acknowledged the wrong done
him, made due apology, and asked and re
ceived his forgiveness fully and unqualifiedly.

principal of the Six th ward school did on Tues

his leave of absence forth purpose of solici

he has for so many years been a prominent,
useful and influential ma n. A alderman and
mayor he has repeatedly and continuously
illustrated the highest virtues of a faithful,
honest and intelligent public servant. Never
backward, and always fearless in the discharge
of duty, he was, nevertheless, able to say in
his last message to the council, in the very
shadow of death:
"Never receiving anything but kind words (or words
quickly spoken the heat of passion and as quickly
forgiven and forgotten) from any officer connected
with the city government, I can say, without any
mental reservation or secret evasion, mat I can take
very man connected with the city government since
I held the position of alderman the first tune, by the
hand, and say, 'God bless you, I wish you well.'"

all," Mayor Maxfield lived and died. is kind

emulated by all who occupy places of public
trust. His memory will be affectionately
cherished by those who have known the man,
