How the Stock Wm
Washington, March 17. Ir. J.
Ilop'rH testified before the Telephone
Investigating Committee to-tlay. He
ileseribeil the orttaniration of the I'an
Klectric Teh-phone as heretofore pub
lished, hen witness proposed to ifive
J.'.OO.OOO in stock to each of his atwo
cintes. (Senator Harris said it seemed
to tc a little too generous, hut as they
esiiected to mako enough for everv-
bolv they would accept the utock.
Witness had written to Senator Win
lom. Jlenjaroin Lefevre and Architect
Clarke that he had a small amount of
stock to their credit, hot tliey all de
clined. ' The gentlemen associated
with himself in the company were to
pay nothing for their interest. Wit
ness wished to secure the co-operation
of men of integrity and of national
reputations, as without the names of
tjiith men the stock could not he sold.
IjucKtinn -Was anything said by
any of the gentlemen with reference
to the company deriving any advan
tage from any ofliciul position held by
anv one of them?
Witness Never a whisper- never a
breath. The object was to dank on
their names ana reputations, and my
Bon'sgenius. Two meetings were held
In the Toom of the Senate Judiciary
Committee for the organization of the
telephone company. There were pres
'. ent Ixwney , Rogers, jr., Senators 1 lar-
ris and (inrland ami (ten. Johnston.
ien. Atkins was not there. At the
first meeting a general agreement was
reached. Senator (iBrland prepared
the papers ami submitted them at the
second meeting. A charter for a tele
phone company was obtained in Ten
nessee, and one for a telegraph com
pany was obtained in New York.
There never was any Van-Electric.
Htnck issued. The certificates were
about as follows:
J. W. Itogers is ent itled to f ")00,0()0 in
the Van-Electric Telegraph Company.
CAHKY YOING, Secretary.
Senator 1 farris opposed the issue of
the stock. Witness supposed the gen
tlemen were unwilling to have their
names go on the stock because they
regarded them as sacred. "It wassug-
Rested in convention," said he, "that
possibly this whole thing will fail, and 1
in tlmt case all concerned would bo
looked upon as scoundrels." So they
had refused to go forward. So far as
ho knew the original associates held
all of their stock at the present time.
The right for Alabama had been sold
for $7.r)0l), which the associates had re
ceived, together with the money on
the Tennessee rights. New York hud
been sold originally for fl',000,000 in
stock to enterprising sons of Abra
ham. Senator flams thought they
would get more for it in that way.
After some negotiations, witness and
his son, with Messrs. Klotz, Money,
Denver and Manning, secured the
Pennsylvania right. That was In 1 384.
The chairman, then Mr. Money, was
a member of Congress. Continuing,
witness said the District of Columbia
and Maryland were also sold. Chi
cago was sold for f 10,000, "of which,"
said tlm witness, "I got my slice."
, Witness had oBurid. 100,030 In
- tock In the Fenotjrlwinla company
to Mr. Randa'l, who hail replied
courteously that he knew nothing
boat the matter, and intimated that
be wanted to near more, lie had
ma le the same offer to Mr. Carlisle,
who had replied in a very respectful
letter that if there was any legislation
connected with the a flair he could
have nothing to do with it. Witness
wanted Randall and Car: isle in the
Pennsylvania company to give pres
tige to the stock. lie had simply
written to these gentlemen that he
. would simply credit thetn in the
books of the stock. Witness then ex-
Elained that his political atliliatlons
ad been always wittj the Democratic
party, and most of his friends be
longed to tint party. A bank clerk
bad told Father Rochefort, one of the
- stockholders, "There is only one thing
Jon want to make that stock go put
eff Davis on it."
, In answer to questions, the witness
declared that he had no idea when
the company was organized that
Mr. Gailantl would be Attorney
. : General; bat he had done his best
to make him Attorney-General after
Cleveland's election. He had dedi
cated a book to Attorney-General
Garland, and predicted that Cleve
: land wonld select the wissst, purest
man in the country to elevate the
Judiciary of the country, On May
2-T.h he had dent a letter to Attorney
General Garland, asking him to in
stitute a suit against the Bell com-
, psny, hut received no reply,
The Chairman Do you remember
Young having come to your houBe,
ana wia you ana your son ol an In
terview with Garland?
; Witness Perfectly. He said that
the suit would now be brought, and
' that there were good prospects of suc
cess. 1 as el it Uarlani had prom
ised, and he raid that he had.
The Chairman How did you come
to ask him?
Witness I said I thought it would
have ti come through a promise of
The Chairman Did Young indicate
be had an interview with Garland?
Witness Yes, I think so. It was
predict ad on that. When he said
uanana promised, l said very em-
Shatically, "II Garland has promised
e will do it. Then Young said: "But
Garland has said .he will refer the
matter to Mr. Goode." Then said 1
"How abont that ; how would Goode
act would be do as well as Garland?'
"Oh, yes," said he : "I believe I would
rather have Goode than Garland he
will be all right." That is the sub-
stance of the conversation.
The Chairman Are you clear that
be told you Garland promised ?
Witness As clear as that I say my
conmrten. Just as clear as that
exist. I stake my salvation on it. be
cause I rosa up and said: 4 If Garland
has promised he will do it." I was
delighted, of course.

The elder Ron, who wai before
the House F an-blectric Committee to
day, is a queer chared sr. He has ha
a taste of almost eveiy thing from the
pulpit down. He was educated for
the tpiscopal ministry, and thirty
years ago m rector of the pret y lit
tle church at Franklin, Tenn. There

ily, by the way, has always claimed a
relationship to the present Senator
from that State, Hon. lsham G. Uar

service as a sort
mrson and followedti
fortunes U the end. Then he went
to Londen. He bad by some means
got the idea in his rather erratic mind
that be preferred the Catholic to the
Episcopal Church, and so transferred
his allegiance to that church. He even
went so far as to offer himself for the
priesthood, but as be was a married
man there was an insurmountable
barrier to bis priestly ambitions. It
is said by those iamiliar with his
record that he even proposed to re
nounce family ties for the sake of the
church service, bat that this proposi
tion did not prove acceptable. He re
turned from London, and, finding that
he could not become a priest, con
cluded to preach Catholic doctrines
thiongh that other medium of reach

editor of a Catholic newspaper pub
lished in Washington. Meantime be
studied law, and when his son,
J. Harris Itogers, invented a tele
phone he became v his attorney.
Their first telephone was called
the "Secret Telephone," and this
they sold to a New York company
fr $00,000, reserving (orthemselvee an
interest for which they afterward got
$23,000. Then the son Invented the
National T lephone, and sold it to
come New Orleans parties, and then
he constructed the Pan-Electric Tele
phone, whose history baa been told
so often of late. It Is alleged that this
one is a cort of reconstruction of the

of a claim of infringement of these

Rogers and bis whole family are de
vout Catholics. It is related that when
he made bis first experiments with the
last mentioned te'eplione he called in
a priest to bless a wire which was be
ing run into his house, over which to
make the experiment!, but ' by some
blunder the priestly blessing was be
stowed upon what the line builders
call a "dead wire," omitting altogether
the one which was finally used in the
experiment. He is an erratic old gen
tlemen, strong in his likes and dislikes,
enthusiastic in his devotion to his hob
bies, and withal an intelligent and
well read person. He has always had
a weakness for the use of the pen,
writing prose and poetry and drama

The reporter was in the office of the
United Lines Telegraph Company in
this city, and the correspondent was
at Willard's Hotel in the cap
ital of the United States. The con
versation was the first publio com
munication held orally between the
tiro cities. The distance is 228 miles.
Ths means bv which it was car
ried on was a tslephone equipped
with tho multiple transmitter,
natanted bv Wm. C. Turnbull of Bab
tlmore, Md., February 23, 1880. There
were at the New York end of the wire,
Mr. O. T. Baibaric, chief electrician of
the United Lines Company, Mr. W. L.
Paine, who controls the, xurnDuu
patent) Dr. H. E. Waite, an expert
elpctricUo. who. had control of the
t ist, and a urge number ot reporters.
Mr. A. W. Hose, an associate ni vt.
Waite. had charge of the test in Wash
ington, and at his end of the wire
were a numoer oi menus uen. a. j.
Warner of Ohio; Sir Alexander Stu
art, Prime Minister of Australia, his
son and Mr. John Adams of New
York ; Congressman James i Ioyd and
Col. Thomas Cox of Chicago j S. T.
Cowl, George B. Corkhill, and sixty
:orrespondents, representing an tne
leading papers of the country. The
first message sent over the wire was
ooe from the World correspondent.
Expert Waits took the telephone
and conversed with the junior Dr.
Itogers, the inventor of the Pan-Electric,
at some length. He also con
versed with newspaper men in Boston.
Then Dr. Waite asked a Baltimore
correspondent how the girls were in

"What do you think of the teat ?" be

"It marks an era in the history of

From a score of people it was
learned that the weather in Washing

ant, and on inquiry they were in
formed that the same condition ol

existing circumstances, and that Mr.
Moloney was exi ected borne some
day. Dr. Waite explained the princi
ple of the mummex transmitter to a
reporter of the World.
J he object ol tne invention, said
he, "is to provide a transmitter hav
ing a la'gs capacity for transmitting
electrical undulations corresponding
with the waves produced by a sound.
and at the same time one that will not
reauire special adjustment, but will
always remain in good ordor. It differs
from the Blake transmitter in that the
carbon in the la ter has but a single
point of contact, while this which we
have been using has twenty. The
sound is increased in proportion to the
number of points of contact. Our in
vention is simpler and cheaper than
the Blake t anBmitter. An electrode is
the surface by which electricity passes
in and out of other media. W e claim
as our invention the combination of
our diaphrazm and the electrode
carried thereby: the pivoted pen
dant cirbon electrodes wuich
make coLtict with the electrode
of the diaphragm and a car
bon pivot on which the electrodes are
mounted ; aleo the combination, in a
transmitter, ci a swinging, ninged or
pivoted carbon electrode and a carbon
pin or bearing on which it is hinged.
We further claim the combination of
the diaphragm, a series of pivoted
pendant, swinging electrodes, formed
ol cylindrical pieces cf carbon, which
are pel f orated at the ends to form
tbeir , bearings, the car or rod on
which said electrodes are pivoted, and
au opposing electrode upon which
they rest by gravity. It will 6e only

before the Senate, and Senator Dolph
resumed the floor and resumed his
remarks in favor of the majority re
port ct the committee.
Senator Dolph reviewed the his-
torv of the leeislation of Congress on
the subject of removals to show that
the power did not He exclusively
with the President. He also quoted
from sneeches of Webster. Calhoun
and other statesmen is support of bis
position. He also cited decisions of
the Supreme Court to show that the
power of removal was incident to the
power ot appointment.
Senator Coke followed. lie con
tended tbai the power of removal
rested with the President. He must
have power to remove incompetent
officers. How could he carry out the
policy announced by the people in his
election without agents in harmony
with bis purposes? How could be

care that the laws shall be faithfully
executed" unless by securing men of
his own selection to e xocute tne lawr.
The papers called for he main
tained to be private papers. Senator
Coke contrasted the course of the
Senate when Democratic with the
course of the present Senate, saying
that the Democratic Sanate had not
attempted to embarrass the Republi
Senator Wilson Md.1, also opposed
the report cf the majority. He com
mented on the fuot that the office
holder, Dutkin, had made no com
plaint, but had assumed that he was
suspended for political partisanship.
Senator Beck did not wonder mar,
Dutkin was . not here for himself.
Everybody knew, Senator Beck said,
that Dutkin was nominated in March,
1881, and the Senate did not see nt to
confirm him. He was again appointed
after the adjournment of the session
and nominated at the October term of
the rame year, ' and the Senator
from Vermont (Senator Edmunds) had
not felt justified in even reporting him
to the Senate for confirmation.
Senator Edmunds rose, as a matter
of duty, to a Question of order. The
Senator from Kentucky, be said, was
violating the duty of a Senator in re
spect to proceedings in executivo sm
A long colloauv ensued between
Senators Beck and Edmunds regarding
the secret? of executive session, in the
course of which Ihe former opposed
all secret sessions, and the latter inti
mated that Senator Beck was forget
ting his oath as a Senator and a man
of honor. Seuat3r Beck finally said:
"I will move now, in order to ascer
tain whether he is telling what is true
or not and if I cannot move it now I
will do so the first oppoitunity that

from Vermont and myself. I make
that motion, and will let it lie over
until morning, or I will do it in the
first executive session, if it Is not in
order to do it now."
The Chalr.'declded that the motion
was not in ord r now.
Af:ersome further debate Senator
Edmunds moved an executive session,
and when the galleries hai been
cleared and tbe doors closed, Senator
Beck offered the resolution which he
gave notice of. He said he did not
wish to rest ' nnder the imputation
fiassed on his honor by the Senator
10m Vermont, and wished to show to
the public that he had good grounds
for all that he had asserted.
Senator Edmunds disavowed all in
tentions to rat any aspersions on the
honor cf the Senator from Kentucky,
whom he held in the highest -esteem.
