That sllver-tonguod orator of Tammany
Ilall, W. Bourke Cockran, did not attain his
present eminence both na.,o lawyer and poli
tician without 'a Bard ttruirglo.1 It Js not so
long ago a mattorpf nine years perhaps that
ho constituted one of the multitude of strug
gling young lnwyors who walk tho halls ot our
County Court IIouso on their upoers.eo to speak.
Cockran had to, hustle for his lunches in
those days, bnt despite his difficulties he never
seemed to loso heart. He kept a stuffy little
offloe at 178 Broadway, into whloh clients
rarely found tholr Way. Before ho had been In
the building n month he had a speaking
acquaintance with qyory lawyerln it, but none
of them ever caughCoakran moping because
he was hard up.
On the contrary; he rapidly noqnlred n repu
tation as tho humorist of the building. His
tongue was as beguiling in thoso clays as it is
now. Ho would haVe lnfoctod Diogenes lilm
solf with his good ' humor. In this way he be
camo relobrated among tho not very prosper
ous lawyers of tliiU,locallty as an original with
a remarkable "git of the gab." as thoy them
selves wore wont to put It Odds and ends of
buslnoss began to lie thrown in hti war by his
follow crattsmenhnd tho quartern which he
not infrorjuontly borrowod to defray hi luncli
lntf exponses worctent him moro ungrudgingly
than would havo been the case had his counto
nnnco boon rueful.
Among tho tenants of 178 Broadwaya dingy
locality in which offices woro correspondingly
cheap was a shrowd young attorney, by nanio
Charloa Strauss. Strauss was a recent gradu
ate ot the law school, but his business was
beginning to grow. Ho had, at tho time Cock
rnn mads histaotualntance, discovered the
necessity of supporting two small ofllco boys
ot tho Hebrato persuasion, on unusual array of
sorvltors for that locality. One of these boys, an
unusually bright little follow with an enoi mous
nose and a rldloilausly pompous ninnhor, and
who rejoiced In 'an unpronouncoable name ot
flvo syllables, entertained n cordial hatred for
the joound Cockran, who would lnar!obly
niako somo such speech as tho following if this
particular boy ohancod to be keeping ofllco
when ho called: ;
" Ab. Mr. ltethsobild. good morning. Is your
boss within 7" and1 thon. an tho boyropllodln
tlie ulllrmattvo somowhat sharply, Cookran
would glvoan emborrassod cough and say In a
ntftfrA tvhfnnnr tlmt nnt avrrhnav hnt tlie hnv
hlmsolt into fits of laughter. " Hay. Mr. Itotbs
child, you don't happen to havo a sparo quar
ter about vou. do' to a V"
But Cockran was probably not so much bet
ter off In thoHOdnys than the boy he humor
ously dubbed Bottnchild. At all events, he had
a wife to support which the boy had not He
was devoted to this young wlf 0 of his, and when
she died while hevwaa in the very midst ot his
sea ot troubles he was inconsolable.
Oookran's fellow tenant Strauss, told him
one day that ho ought to go into criminal law.
" Tbore's $20,t)O0 ft year watting ior you II
you'll only strike out for It" said ne, and Cock
ran allowed that there was if ho could only get
a fair hook at It tor in ordor to succeed as a
criminal lawyer it is first necessary to havo cli
ents, and Cockran tad none.
Strauss, on tho other hand, had nil the clients
he could attend to. Not long after the abovo
conversation wlthOockran the friends of a fel
low who had been In dieted for receiving stolen
goods came to Strauss to got him to defend the
criminal. Strauss took the case, although he
had no speolal liking for criminal business and
stood In no need of It The nappy thought
struck him that hi. would escape all the dis
agreeables ot tho situation by getting Cockran
to try the oaso, and; Tiesldos. obtain an oppor
tunity ot testing hl faith in Cockran'A as yet
untested powers. When this scheme was
broaohed to Cockran he readily closed with It,
and began to prepare' for trial with energy ana
Dickens wouldhotve relished seeing Cockran
try that case. The) evidence ot guilty knowl
edge was too conclusive against the accused to
render a verdict tor, defendant posBtblt, but
nevertheless Oockrap, dominated the entire
situation, and the mry would undoubtedly
have brought in a verdict ot acquittal hod
Judge Cowing let them. Tho latter did not
know Cookran. had probably never seen him
beforn. but the TouW lawyer's line presence
and Imposing diction quite overcams his
Honor. He heard hup oallod by name, and.
Imagining that one ot the lights of Westchester
was bo tore Mm. pfoccAded to address Cockran
" Ho takes you fori Jndgo Cochrane of Weat
ehostor," whispered Straus to his imperturba
ble colleague. , ;
"Well, lot him,'', .nsid Cockran. "I'm not
ashamed to bo mlstakon for so goad a man.
Perhaps Judge Cochrane may ba mistaken for
me somo day, and then the aocount'll bo
squared," And thus masquerading, though
against his will, as a notable the obscure
young lawyer and'Jtidge Cowing vied with
each other in an exhibition ot legal lore. Cow
ing, experienced with flio certainty that comes
ot constant rtraotioe.was moro than a match
for Cockran In tho discussion of the nuostlons
which arose in tho coursoQi the trial, but the
tatter's dexterity of trimd. as well as blsad
mlrablo oddre3s andSsplf-possesslon, was the
means ot preserving him moro than onco from
what would have beon absolute confusion for
almost any other mnni
Indeed, it is no exaggeration to say that hi
never onco lost the. lead In the argument, al
though ho retained it by a not Infrequent dis
dain of tho rules of'loulo. bostlllul was his
language that Judge Cowing Is probably Igno
rant to this dayoi how qlevorlr ho wasimpoeed
upon. It is not the usual practice for a Judge
in tho trial of a case to give much time to ar
gument with counsel' 6n tho law points that
arise in tho oourse or the hearing, but in this
instance Judge Cowing soemed to derive con
siderable satisfaction 03 well as Information

Mr. Cookran was no less successful with the
jury than with the Judga In the first place he
kept them in a good tenrderwlth an lrrests tibia

of tho prosecution with tjfdloulq or else nearly

'severity; That jury wort not bored for one In
stant of the time, and though it was obliged
to find the prisoner gumy It evidently did do
Tho offocfe prodnoed tfrton ovory ono within
the sound of his volcA br Mr. Cookran's
llgbtntng-like quickness1' in dealing with
a witness was well illustrated br the be
havior of a detactlvW on the stand,
who had been called 'by the nroWcution
to testify to tho dlspoeltion'of the stolen goods.
As soon as Mr. Cookran took the witness la

was a manot about 60 years of age, of very
staid and respectable appearance, bnt ot n

listened all day to CookranB deadly methods
of cross-examination, and'tuls. Joined to. the
bad air ot tho canrt room, was no doubt rospon
slblo for what follbwed. After probing the
man's podlgreo f or several ' gonorationa and
mixing biin up vorr snecosaf ully, Mr. Cookran
proceeded to question him tuns:

into the trap, thus laid for him was qulokly
hushed when he was soon to roll from his seat

tacked Mr. Harries, a representative ot the
Star at the Capitol. Col. Martin walked out ot
the hall ot the House with a friend to purchase
p. cigar in tho corridor. Mooting Mr. Harries,
the friend invited him to Join them. Col. Mar
tin's eye flashed wnon It rested on the reporter,
and with a wave ot the hand he said:
"Idou'c'want to shake bands wlth-you. sir:
you blow out tho gas," meaning that Harries
had Invented thatstorr.
Harries laughingly roplled to what ho sup-
Sosed was a good-natured joko: Oh, no,
olonel ; you blew out the gas."
The.words bad hardly beon uttered whon the
Texan's list grazed Harries'H cheek. The re
porter threw up hla fist in position of defence,
nnd the mutual frlond selKed Martin's arm.
CoL Martin then made a piotlon ns if to draw a
pistol, out the friend pinioned him, and per
suaded him to go away. They left Harries
standing where tho raw had occurred. After
ward CoL Martin's anger cooled, and he ex
pressed regret for what had'oosurred.
The feverish anxlotr of politicians about the
Capitol concerning tho composition of tho
House in the Fifty-first Congress was illus
trated, restardar. In the afternoon a report
spread like FllU Are that (lor. UU1 had Issued a
certificate of election to Mr. Bacon, tho Uomo
oratlo oaudldato for reelection In tho Fif toenth
New York district. The basis of tho report was
said to be 'ia tolegram received br some one
from New York to that effeot. Apparently no
effort was made to verify tho truth of tho re
port but It wns accepted on both sides as truo..
and the buzz,of speculation became almost a
roar, llepubucans. chagrined and Indignant
snld that tho attempt to overturn tholr major
ity una neeir, given up in me onuin. as tuat
would make It' too unpopular, and tho lenders
were now depending upon executives and
courts of Northern States to carry out their
plans. The Democrats aocspted, apparently
as a matterofcourse, this reported addition to
tho runks of tbelr members olect, and claimed
that it would result In giving-them a majority
olone In the next Houso. This morning It oc
curred to somo, nftor tho publication of the
fact that a certificate bad been Issued to Mr.
Stivers, the llopubllcnn candidate, to Investi
gate tho origin of yestordiiy'a rumor. It was
iloally trnced, It was said, to a facetious assist
ant doorkeeper of the House from Now York
r Ity. who Btartpd it by saying that " New York
had saved her bacon.'
United States Appraiser Joseph B. Baker
and Assistant ijnltod States Appraiser Oeorgo
n. Hoffman were.dlsmlsted from the customs
service to-day by ordor of the President, who
Issued tho order through the Socrotarr of the
Treasury, Tho'oauses leading up lo this ac
tion are by this' time tolerably well known.'
Collector Cadivalader domanded Mr. Hoffman's
resignation on the ground thnt omploroeti of
tho AliiJraisor's department had impugned bin
administration of his duties, nnd preferred
against him gravo' charges. Hoffman flatly re
fusod to resign, and alleged that tho Collector
sought onljr to punish him for political reasons.
Hoftmun's case wusohamploned br Appraiser
Buker. and an Investigation was hold, which
resulted in tho order ot rumoval.

the college cries and taunts, about 100 ot them
formed in a solid phalanx and marched down
