I was born a slave In Camden 80 Ausr
23 1833 ho said My mother was a slate
nnd mr father a freeman My mother eent mo
lo tho common schooland from there I went by
passing two competitive examinations to tho
South Carolina University In Columbia I re
mained In tho university from October 1871
Until May 187C I cot my appointment West
Point from Congressman hogs tho same Con
pressman who appointed Smith the first col
ored cadet Prof I T Greener the first colored
graduate from Harvard College procured my
appointment from tho ConcrosBraan
Sometime I find myself feellnc utterly
friendless and forlorn but I dont forgot what
a fine placu this Is for a man with no money
Ive only had one difficulty since I have been In
tho corps When I was a plob I had a difficulty
with Sir McDonald also 1 plob Ho struck me
thocymnaslum and again out of door I
did not strike back na I full that It would not be
right and boenuse I knew I could eet ju too
from the authorities I complained and ho was
court mortlaled and suspended for a year As
nnl
I was turned back a year wo came together
nculn and urn now In the same class Mr Mc
Donald tint since boon as courteous as any ono
I In the clnfs
I Whlttaker next reviewed his course In tho
Academy explaining that he had been deficient
in phllooph but durlnc tho second course
over tho some ground got on nicely Since I Ca

dot Minnie quitted West Point ho had roomed
I alone and no one had had nuetit to do with htm
excfpt In an ofllclnl way None had nnnoyud
or threatened him until he received tho first
letter of warning last full
Wiry I did you not show thIs to tho authori
ties h I wns asked
tps Yoll said ho hesitating I thought It was
1 trick Ilkf or something to provoke mo I
torn It up
When lie was asked why ho did nothing when
be received the second evidently friendly note
1 of warning ho said he did show I to one Louis
I Slmpsol tho son of tho colored man who had
J I rhargo of tho bnth room and shoe blacking
NYhlttnUer said tbnt the Simpsons and tho whlto
mon In the engine house and the enlisted men
on duty were the onlj friendly persons ho over
I J law Simpson did not think the note amounted
U > nn > thlng so Whittakur laid that aside
Vhlttnktir again narrated the story ot Mon
I day nlclitB ixpsrlenco Ho said that his door
was provided wltb a latch but no lock Ho
t l beard a movement of the latch and soon after
I ward some one sprang upon him on the bed
I Yhlttnker attempted throw his assailant off
but the person said Strike and you are dead
man I The gas was lighted thoueh he had
turned I out There was a dim light like tho
light from a taper He saw three mentwo bit
men in dark clothing and I little man In gray
who stood oil and appeared not to wish to take
part in what was going on Their facet nnd
voices were disguised Ono struck him In the
facein the nose he supposes ashls nose bled
and ognln be was hit on tho head with
what micht have been 1 hard substance or
tnlcht have been I fst One Mid Lets
hao his head another f nld Lots mark
blm like they mark hogs down South The
two larger men then thrHw him on the floor end
tied his feet together le says ho did not dare
cry out because ho n Toll that 1 ho did he
would bx u dead man They snipped his
ears before they tied his bAnds Hn struggled
nnd wrts wounded In one hand He does not
I le
know whether they used scissors or a knife
Tho Injury to his richt ear pained very much
I setmcd to cut Into the quick bo said The
cut In the right our lid not hurt then and does
not but the doctor tells him
now bl tols a pIece was
out from It Then they rut his hnlr One of
his assailants then said Letsget I class and
let him i see himself Thy held thu all s
DgilnBt his nose and then broko It over his head
Tho vMtor suggested that this was a risky
thing to do at dead nf night In a building full of
men who slept with iloord ajar and fanlights
open Whlttnker replied ajr no noise was
mad Thn men were In their stocking feet or
else wore slippers
Bufom they left ho continued I naked
them tu put a pillow under my head My head
bled profusely One of the laru men put a pillow
low uiulf r my head The little ono asked leave

cadets bad nothIng to do with I
that nUo should be rondo known
ohoull
I am satisfied that non ot tho cadols know
anything about It Each ono lane been ques
tioned by thy comranmUnt Col Lnzollo and to
any one who knows tho corps as It Is or as It
ever has been that Is convincing Tie
evicts feel that although there Is no compul
sion thoy are on their honor Quite us much as
If they under oath In a Each
I wore court Eooh one
has said thnt ho knew nothing about it
Aro the colored mane injuries serious I
the General rna asked
Except tho wounds In his cars ho said
thoro era no Injuries HoBeimod to have on
Idea that hn had boon knocked down and badly
bruised Yes ono ot his Indian clubs was
found in his room wet with blood and
ho thought rooml his skull had been
crushed In but It had not Ho wont to
tho hospital ate breakfast there and returned
to tho barracks I ordered him sent back and
thoroughly examined This was done by Dr
Alexander surgeon and Dr Ltpptncott as
slBtant Riirceon I WR present part of thin
time No wounds or bruises were found
excopt ono on one toe In addition to tho
wounds on his cars These were trifling
Otis looks as though if f it was dono with
scissors tho under blade might have
failed to cu while the upper blade punc i
tured tho skin slightly A piece U I
actually cut from tho lobe of one oar but I Is
so I mal that It will not bo noticed when It heal
nnd I only bled a little as It was Altogether he
bled about 1 clll and tho peculiar thIng
is that although he thinks tho assault
occurred at 1 or 2 oclock In the morning the
blood was wot ind fresh when ho was dl cov
ered at 6 oclock In the mornlucr Ho It was
when I went to hIs room still later The eur
goons said that they thought It hod not boon
drawn over half an hour
Have you hnnrit of tho theory that ho did It
himself the General was asked He replied
that he had that this theory obtained among
the cadets and soma of the officers Ho was
asked whether there could have been any mo
tive for tho act
tv Yes there aro motives that would account
for it ho replied and added I he felt that
he would not be able to pisa the examination
ho might havo desired to plead an Interruption
of hIs studios and loss of time or ho might have
hoped to arouse sympathy and gain nn ap
pointment In tho army without passlnc the ex
amination hut I do not wish to offer you con
jectures the General said this nnrnestly REP
I can only speak of the facts That theory has
bOn mentioned to me but the Investigation
will probably settle all doubt
wil Suppose It worn found that ho worked this
malice upon himself was naked
Thn report would bo mndu to tho President
said Gen bcbofleld nnd ho would net upon it
as he deemed beet I muet toil you that
this theory has been mentioned to Vu Nhlttaker
himself and ho denies that ho did
I Indignantly and with apparent sincerity
He suspects no one Ho says that ho did not
know ho had an enemy In tho post He says
that ho has been completely ostracized
and I suspect that it is true Ho says
that only one cadet has spoken to him
within tho pat rear and that was while all
wero In camp mat summer I imagine
from what he says and from what I know that
ho was Icuored by all tho others He was not
annoyed or Insulted or notice taken of his ex
istence Ho messed with tho others and took
his place In tho ranks but ho says himself that
no ono annoyed hlniT saf
There may be a suspicion In the public
mind Ia suggested that somo of
the Southern cadets are concerned
in this assault either directly or Indirectly
have thought that replied Gen Scho
field I feel sure it is not BO No one class of
men ha acted differently from another There
may bo ono bad student In tho corps who would
plan this nnd carry I out oven to denying any
knowledge of it but thoro are not threat
who when put upon their honor would
lie out ot the scrape Yet Whlttaker
Is certain there wore three No ho does not
say they were cadets Hn does not have
any Idea who they were They wore black
masks he says nnd he did not recognize
nlza their voices A peculiar thing in this
connection Is that Whlttaker shows a letter
of warning that ho received last Sunday No
cadet acknowledges having written thla al
though one would Imaclno thnt whoever was
the author would consider it an honor and
would nnknnwladcft I now
The Go i niaratwssaskud l If the handwrItIng
was Identified Ho said that It was evIdently
disguised with painful care Tho General had
heard thnt VThutakora hands wore froo und
he could have untied the blndliia on his tinkle
Hn claimed to have been unconscious It was
said that he could have snapped the cords
without much exertion The stuff used to bind
him was cotton loin in strips from a waist belt
Hn had I room to himself on tho fourth
floor said the General There are four
rooms on each floor of the barracss two on
each side of each hallway His was opposite a
I room occupied by two cadets Thu fanlights
were open but they heard no notao that night
A yell would have brought the whole corps to
his room
Wns Whlttaker behind hand in his class 7
was asked
I do not know lutt how backward ho Is or
In whit 8Uidle he replied and added the
examination will deteruilna that But I know
he le fulllni buhlnd
It huts been not d that he did not do very
well alter Dipper the other colored cul 10 grail
uated Flipper und he worn companions
Whittaker wan set bacK again nnd tins now
been hero nearly four years He would natural
ly hay been ctadimttd this rear but having
lost n year must move with tho class that will
bnurnilimtcd in 1831
Gun bdhiitleld spoke regretfully of that Io l

that Maedouahd land nothing to do with the ru

Many barges ladon with Ice discharge

Tho Ico dIscharged there Is mainly for tho Con
rumors Ice Company whose oflloa and stables
are at Thirteenth avenue and Horatio stroot
just across tho way from tho shore end of tho
plor and for tho New York Ico Company which
has an ofllco and extonslvo stablca In West
Twelfth etroot about two blocks away from tho
pier The employees ot both companies aro
almost steadily at work on the pier cither un
loading or preparing to unload tho loa barges
With the exception of an occasional scuffle
usually harmless for preoodenoo between driv
ers ot the wagons that aro loaded from tho
barges tile men of both companies work good
nnturodly sldo br sldo Timothy Madden
brother of tho keeper of tho stables of tho Con
sumers Company and Patrick Kuarnoy an
employee of the Now York Company howe al
ways been friendly They are nearly ot the
same ago about twentyeight Kearney is
married but has no children his homo being
In Went street near Perry street Madden la
uumarriad and has lived with his brother who
Is married nt 146 Horatio street
There was no barge awaiting discharge at the
pier yesterday morning and tho foreman ot
the Coueumurk Company directed Madden to
swoop the pier Maddan wont to work nt about
9 oclock trundling the sweepings that ha col
lected away In a wheelbarrow At about 11
oclock as ho was shovelling a heap of swoop
mire Into the wheelbarrow near tho middle of
the pier Kearney lounged up to him Konrney
held nn IcomiinB nxe an Implement that Is
half lee pick nnd half nut ono side of the stool
head beIng pointed and tim other n blado
around to decoding sharpness to enable the
icemen to cut tlae blocks of lee ovomalycitrehessly
In hIs right hand Ho frequently carried that
or a similar axe about on the pier and his pos
session of it then did not attract Maddcns at
tention
hello Tlm Kearney said pleasantly
theyve cot you to cleaning up have they 1
Yes Pat Madden answered I suppose
Its b > caunu theres nothing elso for mntodo
thIs morning Them ho bent over to take up
another shovelful of sweepings As ho did so
Kearney without utterIng a aound swung till
axo In a wide sweep in blue air nnd brought Its
edge down upon Maddens head just behind
tlio right car Madden fell face downward
Kearnoy bent over him and Ptrtiek him agauln
with tho axe his trained hand directing tIm
edge almon to the contra of thin cut made by the
first blow Hut Madden Mrucclod to his feet
and grappled with Kearney The men strug
gled in a circle that wits market with Madden
blood Kearney making wild efforts to strike
Madden with the nsu Once ho succeeded
Mrtklng Madden ou the top of thue bond Mad
den cried for help
The men aboard sovornl lea barges caught up
belaying pins and whatever eiee was handy
and ran toward tha men Then Kearney re
leased Madden who fell exhausted upon tim
pier and Lacked brandishing the axe to the
shore ond of the pier About ndorwn men stood
thero but they scattered aa Kearney ap
proached them In the middle ot Thirteenth
avenue ho stopped and shouted
I said I would kill thin
Then ho bosun to dance laugh and yoll hike
n madman throwing the axe Inch up Into thud
nir and catching it by the hnndlo ns it fell
There were many spectators of this scene but
it does not appear that any of them attempted
to capture Konrnoy or to call a policeman to do
so When tho spectacle had lasted for several
minutes Koaruey suddenly became Quiet lie
walked to n trough for the watering of horses
before tho door of u barroom In Thirteenth
onue juet above Horatio street anti laying the
axe upon tho edge of the trough washed
Itu blade ami then removed the traces ot his
murderous deed from ills hands He entered
the barroom with thn ao under hH arm and
called for liquor When a decanter and H class
wrra Sitt before hint hn filled the glass und
drained it Then hn walked deliberately to the
ofllco of the Now York Company putting tim
axe into some as yet undiscovered hiding
placo on the way and without chine any inti
mation of what ho had dono asked the cashier
for some money saving tlmt ho land nn unex
pected call for It He took tlm money without
n word rind went to his home His wlfo was out
Ho made acomplottchanro in his clothing put
ting on his bent unit Hu then iitilttud the Louse
ant walked quIckly down West street
Madden was taken to fat Vincents Hospital
He nssurod Ills brother who saw him there
that iicotultl not assign any motive for liner
neys nttaek upon him Kouiney wan not un
der tbo Influence of llrjuor Houso Physician
Burke decided that Madden skull was frac
tured In two plneos on ibo right side and that
them wns hardly any possibility ot Lila re
covery
Police Capt Hodioii raid Utah Kenrasy could
hardly have savagely atsnultel Mnddun nn old
friend without uoimi powerful motive possibly
of n domestic nature Kearney has lint among
his tllaw f vvorkuiri the reputation of a untie
goodnatured man aim ho iipponredto trnva n

LONDON AprIl 7Tile Berlin correspond
ent of tho Tunes telegraphs as follows It can
readily bo imagined that on the news of tho
Chancellors intended resIgnation spreading
through political circles hero the English elec
tions ceased to bo the subject of conversation
and from speculating on the woes likely to bo
fall the British omplro by the downfall of Lord
Beaconfluld men began to dilate on tho mis
fortunes certain to accrue to Germany with the
helm ot affairs no longer In the hands of Prince
Bismarck But though no small excitement
and even mild alarm was nt first produced by
the publication ot tIle momentous news these
feelings Boon Rave way on more sober reflection
to conviction that the incident must not be
looked at In its moat serious light No ono
eon possibly believe either that the Chancellor
earnestly desires to withdraw from oflloo
ho has confessedly too much Important un
finIshed work on hand for that or that
the Emperor even If convinced of the serious
Intentions of hIs illustrious servant would
readily grant the liberty ha demands The pres
ent crisis has therefore doubtless the very
samo mennlnc as nil previous incidents of the
kind and those who remember how Prince
Bismarck has on scinrul pant Decisions
nchluved his purpose bv appealing to the feel
ings of his patriotic couniiimun either by a
threat resIgn or by repairing to vnrzln will
have little dIMluultg In perceiving the drift ot
the announcement now made Tim Chancellor
probably does not earn a whit whether or not
the proposed Receipt Stamp fix is adopted but
in its rejection ho discovers n convenient op
portunity for altering a state of things in the
redxrnl Council which hns long annoyed him
Nor can it bo doubted thnt fundamental change
of tim Imperial Constitution affecting the
Hundesrnth is the real obje t he lots nt heart
Of thellltyelght votes distributed among has
twflntyflvc members of this body Prussia pos
