the company would be fairly and hon

upon future possibilties required the
guarantee of men of national reputa

ard VTintcrsmith of Kentucky.
Mr. Ranney - Yes, I have seen his
letter. He seemed to be very grate
ful. It wring to have made him very
happy. Did ho gire anything for it?
Witness replied in the negative.
Witness Raid that at a meeting at
which Senator Harris, Gen. Johnston,
Mr. Young and witness (anil possibly
O.l. lyooney) were present, Mr. Young
stated that a numler of members of
Congress wanted to become interested
in the Pan-Electric Company and had
frequently importuned him on the
subject. Young axked advice as to
what should be done. Ho suggested
that probably tho members of the
company had enough of that class of
geotlenien associated with them. The
'1 he question was then discussed as to
how much the members of Congress
would give. Twenty dollars was pro
posed, but Young suggested that that
was too much. He said that most of
them wanted to get in on the ground
floor, or as near the ground as pos
sible. Young connted on his fingers
four or uvo members. The
matter was - loft with Mr.
Young to do the bost he could
The namo.of Mr. J)nnn of Arkan
sas was mcuueaod. Witness did not
remember tho others. Witness then
went on to state that an effort had
been made in lKfSl, or the beginning
of 1A84, to have him appointed
electrician of the House of Represent
atives, and Senators Harris and Gar
land had gone to sec Architect Clark.
Witness believed that the position
would collaterally benefit the I'an
Klectric Company. By that he meant
he would be in position to take ad
vantage of the eugines, dynamos and
other machinery to carry on experi
ments which would benefit his associ
ates and the government. Gen. John
ston went to see the Speaker in his
behalf. Witness got a member by the
name of Robinson of New York to
otl'er a resolution on the subject. Mr.
Robinson held a certain amount of
American postal telegraph stock.
Witness said his father was a candi
date for some office under this admin
istration in which ho could carry out
his profession, such as assistant attor
ney in some of the departments or a.
position abroad at Marseilles or Milan.
The witness was then questioned by
Mr. Oak as to the date of the inter
view in which Mr. Young stated that
Attorney-Genra' Garland had prom
ised to bring suit. The witness fixed
the date some time early in July.
The eecon i interview with Young
was in the latter part of July. Wit
ness reiterated the statement as to
Young's language on the occasion of
the first interview. At the second in
terview itlie whole ground was not

mailer u:ai was wen Known Between
them. Young said tint it was better
not to sav nnvtliinir about it.. Wifnnss

the Bell peoplo to hear almut it. It I
was during tho first interview that
loung said that as Garland was at
torney fr the Pan-Kleotric he felt a
delicacy about bringing the suit, and
inai it would be hrought by Ooode.
' Vutness was leeily impressed bv

The Chairman Did you assign your

Witness There were three reasons.
One reason was that tfcey held official
positions, and from the fact that they
were widely known; the second
reason waa because tliey were law
yers; the third reason, last but not
least, was because we had known most
of them for many years, and we were
satisfied they would conduct every
thing on an honorable txisis. We
wanted none but such men .associated

A story went about soon after tho
loath of (Jen. Grant to the effect that
le had been aware of a revolutionary
proposition on the part of Andrew
Johnson while President. Mr. Blaine,
in his second volume, thus disposes of
"There' were secret and ominous in
timations that Gen. Grant had been
approached by the President with tho
view' of . ascertaining whether, if it
shouM be determined to constitute
Congress of Democratic members from
tho Sorth and rebel member from
the South. (leaving the Republicans to
couw',li or stay out as they -might
choose), the army could be relied upou
to sustain such a movement. Thero
is no doubt that many earnest Re
publicans were so impressed
py the perverse course -of
President Johnson that they
came to believe him cap.if.ne of any
atrocious act They-gave credulous
ear, therefore, to these cxtnivairant
rumors i and in the end thev suc-
w(led in making a deep impression
upon the minds of certain members
of tho committee charged with the
investigation into the President's offi
cial conduct. The persons who were
giving currency to these rumors never
seemed to realize that Geu. 1 1 rant,
with his loyalty, his patriotism hud
his high sense of personal and odK lnl
honor, could not for a .moment have
even so much as listened to a proposi
Hon which involved an attack upon
the legitimacy of the congress of tho
United States, and practically contem
plated its overthrow through means
not ilifferent from those by which
Cromwell closed the sessions of
the Long Parliament. Nothing can be
nioro certain than the fact that if
l'rcsident Johnson had ever made
such an intimation to Gen. Grant it
would have been at once exposed and
denounced with a soldier's directness,
and tho President would have been
promptly impeached for an offense in
which his guilt would not have been
doubtful. It was not surprising, there
fore, that by Gen. Grant's testimony
the entire charge was dissipated into
air and pro' ed to be only one of the
thousand baseless rumors which in
that exciting period were con
stantly filling the political atmos
phere. It was, perhaps, the intun
tion of the committee in examining
Gen. Grant on this point to give
him an opportunity in an ofheud re
Kirt to stamp the current rumors as
utterly false. It can hardly bo possi
11 that a aiuglo mem)er of the com
mittee believed that Gen. Grant hail
silenfly received from the President a
deliberate proposition to revolution-ir-e
the government. When the essen
tial truth of the matter was reached it
was found tliat Gen. Grant luid never
heard anything from the Pnwidcnt on
the question of organizing Congress at
all different from the premises he had
assumed in the series of disreputable
8)eeclies delivered by him in his ex
traordinary tour through the country
the preceding year."

Birmingham, Ala., March 15. Out
in the open air, in the glorious sun
shine to-day, Joseph Hengl, a Ger
man baker here, took his own life.
He lived over the lakery, which ho
recently sold, in tho business center
ef the city. He left home this
morning, taking his pistol with
him. This being a new tt ing
for him to do, it excited his wife's ap
prehension after ho was gone, and
she told her fears to City Marsha! Gaf
fard. About noon a man came to the
marshal and reported that Hengl was
lying dead by the side of the Pratt
railroad, in the edge of the town, with
a bullet hole through his head. This
proved to be literally true. The ball
was not to be found. Dejection alnut
business is sumoscd to have caused
the- suicide, lie sold the bakery at a
bad bargain, and lately had re
proached himself bitterly. He leaves
to his wife and children life insurance
policies for 5000.

Appeal from the Circuit Court of
Jippah county, Spight. ami Marmou
for imiielliint. 'Charles It. Howry ami
J. . 1. 1'iilkner for appellee. Opinion
oi mo court i iy vooiier, i . .1.
Appellant being in embarrassed cir
cumstances, desired to make an as-
siiinient for the benefit ot hiscrvdit-
ors, with prefcrenco to certain ones,
among whom was appellee, and
equally distributing the remainder of
his property, Iseing sick in bed, he
sent for lus attorney, who came with
appellee and the agent of another
creditor, who threatened to attach if
not included with appellee among pro-
i rred creditors, l'ikiu some ground
not suggested bv tho record, appel
lant's attorneys informed him that
the assignment he desired to make
would be invalid, nd tho creditor's
would immediately begin to attach,
and udrised him, instead of making
tho assignn ent, to consent that at
tachments might be issued against his
estate. There is a conflict of evidence
as to whetlier or not apinllant con
sented to this, but appellee immedi
ately made affidavit lor attachment,
alleging the single ground that appel
lant had assigned or djsposcdt or was
about to assign or dispose ot bis prop
erty or rights in action, or some part
thereof, with intent to defraud his
creditors, and on this iillidavit the
writ of attachment was issued. - Ap
pellant traversed the ground for suing
out the writ, and there arose tliC ques
tion involved, which u whetlier it is
permissible for appellant to deny the
rightfulness of tiie ai .ickment to
which ho onseuted. The Circuit
Court heldi that lie wum in ell'ect
estopped tol-ontroverf tin- facts alleged
in pluintilli affidavit, nnd judgment
was entered against the defendant.
Held-. That there il no doubt that
at and bclorcltho t mc when the affi
davit was inafle for m writ tho de
fendant hud aliandniicd all idea of
executing the' assignment, and that
this fact was well kimwn to the plaintiff,-
who, according to his own testi
mony, resorted to the attachment pro
ceedings by agreement -with )io de
fendant, not Ixfiuieo dcfendaiH in
tended to mal:t unv transfer of bLi
property honest or fraudulent, rH
woHUse he 4ia del rmined not v
make any transfer, r.hd to nbmit to
tho attachment as the means of reach
ing the same end, to- it, the giving
of a preference to I laintiff to secure
tin payment of the debt due him.
We are unable to perceive in what
respect the assignment would h;tve
Ik'oii fraudulent if made, but conced
ing that it would have been, all inten
tion of executing it had been b;in-
loned by the defendant, and In lieu
thereof the plaintiff was to sue out
There is therefore a total absoni-e
tending to prove that tho defendant
was about to do any of these things, if
which would subject him to attach
ment, or that tho plaint tf behoved he
was about so to do. There is no ele
inent of estoppel in the case. The
plaintiff did not believe that defend
ant was about to dispose of his prop
erty with fraudulent intent, but knew
that he was not, and knowing this he
took such action as was permissible
