Mr. Iwls- I think there has been an effort on
the part of the Senator from the Twenty-sixth
to uet up an lsuo between himself and the rest
of the committee. I wn not opposed to coun

own way and his own man. then I want to know
why there Is but one man In the Stato to do this
work. While wo were In New York a member

a messciiiter to him savliu: that we were In New
ork and inklni; what he proposed to do. 1 told
this to Senator Lewi, mid 1 ulsn told him we
should net nn answer at 12 o'clock. The Sena
tor's memory falls him when ho says that a
member of the committee called on Mr. Tweed,
and he knows It. The nn-rni;er came back and
said that Tweed was vcrv. bux, "".,' ""'

he said, "tin on with the Ime-tlk'atlon and

Lewis and then he was not ready to un on, yot,
when It Is said that n Senator called on Twoed,
saw him alone.
Senator Woodln. full of holy horror Jumped
to hll feet and cried. "Did a Senator sco him,
and see him alnnor"
Senator Johnson Yes. sirs I did, and 1 avow
It here. If an) body Is to be hurt by this Investi
gation I will take my chances.
. Senator Woodln 1 ask Senators If It Is not
human nature to suspect that somebody's to bo
shielded when only one man will be accepted n
counsel? The Senator made a remark that I I
do not understand. He questions tho motives
of the proldlmr officer who appointed this com
mittee, and he shall make an explanation to It,
here or elsewhere.
Mr. Johnson- Cither place.
Mr. Woodln -lie Implied improper motives In
the appointment of the committee which ho

Then came a blast from Mr. Lord, llo raid :

committee "III not employ Mr. Mitchell. He
was once encased to Imcstlgale the whole He

Tennessee Tho old man Shelby Is dead, but
TennloC. still lives In New York. This city Is
on the Mississippi, Just below tho mouth of
Wolf rlvor. This rlvor Is not named after the
wolves In cheap clothing In Now York. All the
rivers In this section have mouths nnd heads,
but what Is vory queer, If not eccentric, Is,
their heads aro on one end and their mouths on
tho other. Thcv also hate tongues -tongues
of land projecting Into them land they have feet,
too-so ninny foot of wider. And theso rlicrs
havo lots of tows on 'em, and corns grow on

on their shores have brows. And these rivers hate

Memphis Is built on tho site of old Kurt As

here. They never used horse cars, nnd Instead
of going to circuses they wont to nmuso them
selves cooking Caucasians with dried huckle
berry bushes. They were a barbarous race, and
they were In thu habit of cutting the hair on tho
heads of Ihe pale faces a little too short, which
mado the pale faces too pale, so they built Kort
Assumption and telegraphed to thoso Indians
with bullets not to visit them any morn, and
thoso Indlsns didn't find much difficulty In
getting those messages through their heads. I

blew out the gas and retired. He has suffered
with gastrlck fever ever since. He was a wicked
man, nnd had been accustomed to candle wick

On my trip up the river from Vlcksburg (Isn't
It uueer that I came direct from Vliksburgto
Tennle C.I) I calculate 1 drank mud enough to
make an acre. 1 know I did to make an acher.
My disposition Is rather lively than otherwise,
and I can't get along without talking. So I
talked with a man. That man had a nose that I
took for a red toy balloon, and I got acquainted
with him by trying to collapso It with a pin, He
was the queerest shaped man I ever saw. Ills
ribs must liavo been made out uf some old um
brella frame. It Is no compliment to a water
melon to say he was shaped like a watermelon,
and tt Is downright base ingratitude to a squash
to say that ho had nil tho s) nimotry of a squash,
but he had.
Says he, " What In thunder aro you pricking
my noso tor?"
Sa)s 1, "How Iu tho detll could I know thai
that Is a no.ef"
Sa)s he. " Well, tlr. It Is. and my nose, too."
I extended niv hand ami said, " I forgive you."
Savs I, " If you were a vegetable, a dead beat,
fur Instanco, what member uf the vegetable
kingdom would )ou marry?"
Says he, "Stranger. 1 don't know."
Says 1, "I do; I'd marry a cant-elope."
Says he, " II) gosh, you re right, stranger."

found out before I was through with him that
he had alwajs thought that Noah and Daniel
Webster were brothers, and that Noah Web
ster navigated the ark and Daniel Webster
was the Daniel the lions wouldn't eat. I
told that fellow, "that he ought to die and

Harlow's testimony was confined to the manner
In which he disposed of the tl2,0UU placed In his
hands by (Ion. Sickles last winter to bo used In
brio matters. He accounted for what ho had
paid out, most of It ivolng to counsel, among ,
w horn were ox-Speaker Smith, Lvninn Trcmnln, I
Matthew Hale, and Mr. McKnrland. Homo n,fj
was left In his hands after paying theso gentle
men, and (hit he returned tu (ten. Sickles.
Tho Attorney-Ucncral wu particularly anx.
Inus to Impress the committee with the Idea
lL'fl Jhe ""oiioy paid to Speaker Smith
if was not Intended In any way to affect his
action as a legislator, tint becauso his services
would bo valuable In untlrlpiited letlshitlon. In
cotiiequence of his Intlnintc knowledgo of Krle
matters derlted from bis connection with the
famous Itaiiisay suit ugalust Kitk and (loiild.
He nlso drilled that ho had ever received ono
notion that speaker Smith c'Uld be bribed for
the p.ittr) sum of fijiou, or that ho, nfter hating
refused to accept of nm compensation In lids
mm .r, should nttenit.1 to cuter himself with ,
mud and 01th by endeavoring to btlbo members
of tho legislature.
Tne Attomey-Ocnerot rean several letters from
flcn. Slcklos to hlii on the Krle question, t igulh
er wllh his replies, which nit went tcry strongly
to show that tbnigli ho would not, ns ho said,
take any pay fr his services, yet ho was enlisted
heart and soul on tho sblo of (ien. Shkles. It
stems, hntvevcr. that tho diplomatic Dah did
not play fa.'r with tho Attoriicy-fleneroJ, for he
told that he was taken by surprise with tho grand
roup ifr rMt by which Sickles obtained posses
sion of Krle, and that ho was very Indignant at
his tretittnent on that occasion. Ho did not
think that Slcklos had done right In carrying on
that Intrigue without lettlnuhlm In, and to such
length did his Indignation carry him that ho had
never seen (Ien. Sickles from that time to this.
In fact, the Attornov-Gonoral gave the commit
tee to understand very distinctly that he had
"cut" our Minister at Madrid after his little
finip if efdf, and had no connection with htm In
arranging the affairs of I'.rlo subsequent to that
date. The committee, liowover.liiti'iid to Inves
tigate the whole transactions In Trie from tho
time Sickles sent the I12.U00 to the Attorney
(leneral to the present time, and will be able
probably to ascertain Just how far the Attorney
(leneral s Indignation extendod, and who was
hurt by It.
MIIK WANTS TO COMrilOUISK.
It will be reinemberrd that some time ago the
Krle Hallway sent season passes to all members
of the Legislature, and that many (if them re
turned tho passcsMlth Indignant letters, becauso
the) wero not for the full year. It apoears that
tho Krle managers attribute tho lnvi ttlgatlon tn
their mistake In not tending yearly passe, and
President Watson Is anxious to compromise.

by tlirt wet ground on which the Tombs was
built; but tho great troubto arlsos from defec

Ordinarily the force of water Is Insufficient to
reach the pities' entire length, and two causes
operate against the force of the stream tho
unusual obstructions plncod In the sinks by
prisoners, and the obitructlun arising by
the pipes being displaced In consequence
of the building's settling In tho contre. 1
have always said that the prison was badly con
structed, and unfit for use, and I havo repeatedly
asked tho authorities tn mnke such alterations
asuro required. I hate Invited publlo Inspec
tion and putillc strlcturoa In order to
have this building condemned. It pleases
me to see that Tint Sun has made this
subject a specialty on prison reform, and you
may feel assured that I am heartily wit lilt In the
movement. Hut we cannot afford to build another
Frlson on new ground. That would cost nearly

at the cost of f 100.111), which will answer the
city's purposes for fifteen years.
WHAT THIS COHMISSIONKIl rROPOfES TO t0.
" I propose to drain the ground on which the
Tombs stands, chango the waste pipes to per
pendicular positions, remove the Police Justice's
Court building arma the street, nnd make the
part they now occupy a portion of the prison by
adding two stories; make additional cells by
fitting up the old watch house, and then wo
shall have u city prison that will not be a dis
grace tn the great metropolis, I have made thlt
suggestion to the Hoard of Aldermen, and I
thluk their committee will adont my views."
Several members of the Long Island City Com
mon Council aocepted an Invitation from Alder
man I.ysaght, who unofficially accompanied
Alderman Morris, and wero present during the
Inspection yesterday. Tho experts who were
wllli Alderman Morris condemned tho prison In
unqualified language. They said It had been
constructed without reference to any known
ayfteni; that It was Improperly tentllatod, badly
lUhted, and very defective In dralnago; and that
Its want of sufficient seworago alone waa enough
tu warrant the committee In finding
Till! nilKON t'NMT roll USE.
Mr Young said that he had never seen a build
ing so defective In Its epnnlntments, and while
expressing his surprise that It bad been occu
pied so long, ho added i "This la a disgrace, a
liuriilng shiime, to tho city. I have read the ar

Alderman Morris complimented The St'N for
Its persistency Hi keeping the horrors of the
Tombs before the public, and said: "I shall aid

Jndgo Daly's Iloard of l'hralclans Declnro
lllm to be ol Unsound ffllud,
Monday afternoon, Dm. Win. Hammond
and 'llioddeua Cross, tho Iloard do Lunatico
Inqulrcndo appointed by Judgo Daly by request
of District Attoney Phelps, to dotermlno the
condition of Mr. Geo. Francis Train, forwarded
their report to tho District Attorney. It was vory
brief, merely declaring Mr. Train to bo subjocl
to delusions. Irrational to his conduct, and of
unsound mind. Dr. Hammond subsequently
said to a Sun reporter that be did not think Mr.
Train a dangerous lunatic, and had rofusad to
s'gn an affidavit that he ought not to be at large.
Ho thought Mr. Train a timid man, except Id Ills
language, and was of opinion that he ought to bo
at once relcasod from confinement, as that tend
ed to aggravate his malady. " Mr. Train," he said,
"Is a man of great genius and fine education.
Ills chief Illusions wero that he was to be Pagan
Dictator, was the only man who could save the
country, and wu the leader of the Interna
tionals." The reporter afterward visited District At
torney Phelps, In ordor to aacertaln what action
he was going to take on the report of tho Medi
cal Hoard. Mr. l'holos said that he should lay
the report before Judge Daly, who, as first Judge
of the Court of Common Ploas, acted as County
Judge, and under tho provisions of tho statute
of 1HI3 ho has power either to Impannela Jury to
decide the question of Mr. Train's sanity, or to
send him to the Iltlca asylum on his own com
mitment. Mr. Pholps has no doubt that .Mr.
Train "had a screw loose" somewhere, but he
thought him harmless, and not subject to hallu
cinations fraught with danger to lov one.
Tho medical commission has made two visits
to Mr. Train, the last ono, on Monday, receiving
extra official sanction through the action of
Judge Dowllng, who went with the doctors to
Mr. Train's celt. A physician, who has known
Mr. Train a long time, and who has seen
him almost every dnv during his Incar
ceration, says that Mr. Train Is not Insane.
"Continued confinement will make hlin sn,"
added the physician, "iln should be tried or
released, for humanity's sake. The only differ
ence between Mr. Train and other men It that
the pcrccutcil man says what he think, whllo
others say what they think the publlo desire to
h.oa.r.'. 11 "JC"'!!!.1. .WVffl.HTm'lrilirVirVh'e
inaoiitnatlons of his enemies."
Mr. Train says very little about tho doctor'
decision. He thinks that there Is a conspiracy
to got him Into an as)lum,and he wlllqulotly
submit to the authorities, relying upon his
friends to sro him vindicated.
Ills friends aro aroused, and they will make a
fight that promise.! tho strongest kind of a
diversion In Mr. Train's favor.
