TEE POTTER COMMITTEE AGAIN IN

Does Acknowledge, However, that He
Misled the Congressional Committee In
Compliance "With His Contract With.
ShermanHe also Stoutly Be-affirmi the
Trnth of that ContractAnother Effort
to be Made To-Day to Break Him
WASHINGTON, nne4.The cross-examination
of Jas. Anderson, in the Potter investiga
tion committee, was commenced to-day by Mr.
Reed, one of the members. It was largely de
voted to an endeavor to convict the witness of
disenpaaeaM between his testimony last
Saturday and statements heretofore made by
him before the Senate investigating committee
that visited Louisiana last year. The bulk of
the examination was as to minor details, which
would not be of any general interest to the
public. The contracts between Anderson and
Nash, and between Anderson and Weber, were
largely used for the purpose* of showing con
tradictions and discrepancies and a disregard
of moral considerations on the part of witness.
For instance, he had stated Saturday in rela
tion to the Nash contract that at the time of its
date he had no evidence of fraud in his posses
sion and had not pretended that
he had any, and yet the contract re
cites that be is to suppress evidences showing
that East Feliciana had been faiily carried by
the Democratic party, the consideration for
such suppression being that Nash was to secure
for him the position of naval officer. He was
pressed on that point as to whethei his state
ment on Saturday, that he had no such evi
dence, was correct or not, and he asserted that
it was, except that he had the Sherman letter
in his pocket at the timeif that could be
construed as such evidenceand also, except
that he had knowledge that the vote of the
State was to be thrown ont on forged protests.
He admitted also, he didn't expect to get the
position of naval officer. He was then asked:
Q. Then that agreement does not express
A. No, not in that sense.
Q. You simply took the paper like a sort of
immoral promissory note?
A. That is about the construction hich a
moral man might put upon it.
Q. You were not very particular about stat
ing the facts exactly in it. What you wanted
was to get the thing in that shape that it would
hurt Nash if he did not carry it out.
A. That was it exactly.
Q. Is that the sort of transaction into which
you frequently enter?
A. No I never entered into anything of the
kind before until I was brought into contact
with Republican officials in Louisiana.
Q. It is a common sort of document in
A. Yes, it is a common thing in Louisiana.
Q. Something like this: I hereby confess
that I stole $1,000, and in consideration of that
I will give John Smith an office, and you both
sign it, and that binds you. Is that the sort of
agreement you aie in the habit of making?
A. No, I am not aware of its being a habit?
Q. You do not know how many more of these
little prommissory notes are out?
A. That is the only one.
Q. You tried it on a colored man first?
Q. The little arrangement which you en
tei ed into with Weber, was that sort of a pro
missory note too?
A. No, I don't know that we promised any
thing to any body.
Q. Thin arrangement with Nash was, you
say, so that Nash would not throw you over?
Q. You got nothing that would blacken him
if he did?
Q. And as for yourself blacking would im
prove you would it?
A. I do not know whether it would or not.
Mr. ReedJ think it would.
The cross-examination was then directed to
the object of showing a contradiction between
the statements in the Weber contract that the
parish had been carried by the Democrats by
legitimate means and statements made in
Saturday's testimony that there had been some
slight intimidation in the parish. A long time
was consumed in this branch. Witness having
repeated what he stated on Saturday, that in
the protest which he had signed the words Re
publican or Democrat did not occur, was asked
whether he had ommitted th* purposely.
He said that he had and that he had done so
in the Weber contract with the object, on his
and Weber's part, of protecting themselves.
Q. You mean putting yourself in a position
so that you could take either side of the ques
A. Not at all.
Q. So that you could give testimony on
either side of the question?
A. No, sir.
Q. You gave testimony on one side of the
question before the Senate committee, did you
Q. You carefully suppressed all evidence
that had a tendency to help the other side, did
A. I did. I was trying to carry out my im
plied bargain with Sherman and suppressed ah
much truth as possible without swearing to a
Q. And you did it by suppression?
A. I did it by suppression.
Q. Antl now you are stating it ou the other
side, are you?
A. I do not know that I am stating it on
Q. You are doing it entirely on a level
A. Doing it entirely on a level basis,
Q. But before you stated it on one side?
A. On the other side.
Q. And when you mode the protest you
stated it on one side?
A. I did.
Passing on to Anderson's examination be
fore the Senate committee, he stated he had
purposely compounded the two documents.
There were, he Baid, one affidavit and two pro
tests, and in my statement I tried to carry out
as far as possible my implied agreement with
Mr. Sherman, and I compounded the affidavit
witd the two protests.
Q. Did it purposely?
A. I did.
Q. Then, under oath you purposely misled
A. I misled that committee purposely.
Q. So that before that committee you
meant one thing in your mind and conveyed
another thing to the committee?
Q. And you went through the whole exam
ination under oath in that manner?
A. Just in that manner.
Coming down to his testimony as to the in
terview with Mr. Sherman at Morcau's restau
rant in New Orleans, Anderson was closely
cross examined and made to repeat in detail all
the circumstances of the interview, but bis an
swers to all the questions, did not show any
notable variation or discrepancy. The cross
examination was not concluded when the com
mittee adjournetdDepereo'clock till 11 to-morrow.

ON THE OTHER SIDE.
Such is the Introduction Col. Henry Wat
terson was Given to the Veterans of the
Ohio Soldiers' HomePositive Views as
to Pensions Positively Expressed.
DAYTON, O., June 4.Henry Watterson, of
the Louisville Courier-Journal, lectured in this
city this evening, and addressed a large assem
bly of veterans of the Soldiers' Home this af
ternoon. He was introduced by Hon. Geo. W.
Hmk, of Dayton, as Col. Henry Watterson,
who served on the other side in the late un
pleasantness. He referred to the late war as a
question beyond party or individual control.
Each man had done his best on either side, and
what he thought ri?ht, if he were a brave and
true soldier, it matters little where he stood
when the long muster roll is called. God will
not ask the color of the cloth worn by any
victim. The right of man to govern himself is
above parties that have their day like dogs.
Were he an autocrat he would not deal out ben
efices with a niggaidly hand but would multi
ply institutions like tbe Soldiers' Home, nor
stop at Mason and Dixon's linenot till the
veterans of the South got a little with the rest.
In sober earnest he asked only what he was
readj to give, and asked nothing for himself.
In republics there could be no discrimination.
Equality was indispensable. He would pen
sion every poor soldier and let the politicians
make the most of it. The quarrel dividing the
victims was not of their making, not of their
seeking. It has ended and all are once more
soldiers of the Union, mutually interested in a

BEBLIN, June 4.Last night many thousand
people thronged the neighborhood of the pal
ace, waiting the bulletin of the emperor's con
dition. The space from Charlotte strasse to
the palace of the Crown Prince, was kept clear
by the police to secure perfect quiet. Their
services were scarcely necessary. The crowd
was quiet and patient to a touching degree.
It seems that after the shooting of the empe
ror Sunday, when the enraged populace broke
into NabeUng's apartment, he fired twice at
them, severely wounding Haeltfeur, an inn
keeper. The crowd, seeing him bleeding, sup
posed he was the assassin, fell upon him, and
he was so roughly handled before the peo-
le discovered their mistake, that his life is
of. After the second shot Nabeling
shot himself. He was instantly seized and
placed in a prison van. As the"driver passed
rapidly through the archway at the entrance of
the house, his head struck the arch with such
violence that his neck was dislocated and he
died almost instantly.
The examination of Nabeling cannot be con
tinued on account of his precarious condition.

though he had no, reason to spare them, he
would mention no nameB just then. The office
of shooting the emperor devolved on him by a
drawing of lots, and he believed it wouldbe
to the public interest were tbe head of the
State to be removed. The town continues in a
state of the greatest excitement and affliction.
The crime will produce grave consequences.
