Telephonic Investigating Committee
resumed its labors at noon to-day Dr.
Rots wan further examined. Recur
ring to the conversation held nith
Young in ais room about the govern
ment suit, witness said Young had
told hiru that the other parties -the
ifationa! Improved Company had
collected $76,000 worth of testimony
in Lurope and they were desirous of a
combination in the suit so as to put
that tostimoay against some littlo in
fluenre thai they (the Pan-Electric
people) raigkl hTc. That was about
two weeks before the institution of

that the rait would be brought in the
name of that company; but witnesa

been a part to the National rieeret
Telephone (wnopany organised two
years before the Pan-Electric by
Messrs. B, . Hyne.' Hume Dean and
Gen. Thomas Kwine- of Ohio. The
eurital was $5,000,000, based on his
on'i inventMns. The romninv had
leased to the Pittsburg ana Mew Or
leans companies. Van Hcntbuysen
had been the arcanizer of the S'ew

Objection was mude to the line of
iniiuiry as not being germane to the
subject tinder investigation, and Mr,
Oaten wished the committee to decide
at this point whether it wou'.d be
proper to go cntsido of the subject
matter of the resolution directing the
investigation, and maintained the
ooniuiittco should not go into ques
tions not iiertinent to the lntiuirv.
Mr. Runiiey said it would seem that
all vl these companies were more or
les closely connected, and the com
luittee should not attempt to shield
Mr. uuws replied mat no man was
more ready than himself to go to the
bottom of thin matter, but ho objected
to nn inquiry about outside parties
either whitewashing or blackening.
Mr Uauncy said the committee was
on tne verpe ol discovery, no one could
n n in uio uarn wno a man was.-
Mr. (tates rejoined that he did not
propose to embark en that kind of a
craft ; he wished to stick to the only
mailers properly Detore the com
.nr. iiunncy said mat lor some rea
son or other the suit had been shifted
from tbe Pan-Electric Company to the
VanltonthuyBon people. There was a
question m lner mind in that respect
After some further discussion the
objection was sustained by the chair
Witness said there had been no
transfers f Pan-Electric stocks be
fore the patent was issued, but later
eertiheatos had been sold, and he got
half the proceeds anil lxioney the
other half. Mr. Money had retained
both the telephone and American
Postal stock. Witness knew Money
was chairman of the Postodice Com
mittee of tho House. Money was not
a candidate for Postniaster-ueneral at
that time, und witness had done
nothing to holp him to that office.
Witness had never sold any stock to
a member of Congress. He applied
for a consular place, and had written
Attorney-General Garland about it
Looncy had also seen the Attorney-
ieneral in furtherance of the appli
cation. Ilecurrinj.; to tho subject of the gov
ernment suit, the witness said be did
not know until the last meeting of the
board that Van Benthtiysen of New
Orleans had made an application to
Attorney-Genera! Garland to have
tho suit brought in addition to the
application made by the witness.
Mr. Oates inquired as to the present
feeling between the Attorney General
lie replied: "1 have no malice
against Mr. Gailand, but I think that
when he had a chance to be generous
he acted meanly."
Mr. Oates asked if the witness had
ever written any satirical poetry di
rected against the Cleveland adminis
tration, and especially against Attor
ney General Garland.
"Just got it this morning from Bal
timore," replied the witness, cheer
fully, as ho drew out a pamphlet.
"Here it is. Want to see it?"

bring suit and thus fcTcstall an adverse
decision of the Interior Department.
Mr. Itanney wished to know the
ground for tbe statement.
The witness replied that it was a
probability. He believed that Van
Benthnysen, Young ' and Garland all
understood perfectly will that suit
was to be brought in a shirt time. He
said he knew that Col. Young had
been through the whole business from
beginning to end ; he was one of wit
ness's agents in promoting the busi
ness of the company, and had been
sent out by Senator Harris. He
also knew that lie (witness) had made
the application to Garland to have
suit brought, and that the application
had been ignored.

A number of builders, architects
and dealers in builders' supplies of
this city have formed an organization
to be, known as the Builders and
Traders' Exchange, and have rented
rooms in the basement of the Cotton

fitted up after the manner of other
commercial exchanges. A permanent
organization was effected yesterday by

the business of the Exchange
are admirably suited tc the pur
pose, and the new Excuange will
doubtless grow in popultrity as its
usefulness becomes more widely felt
and appreciated. The tencency of the
times is toward centralization of busi

ally becoming alive to the value of a
convenient trading point, where tho
buyer and seller can mee,, exchange

squad of hands ready, mid, as" soon .as
the papers were signed, put them to

"You might read it."
Several members threw up their
hands in eloquent protest. "It is the
evidence" added Mr. Itanney, appa
rently enjoying Mr. Oates' discom
fiture. The spectators laughed, but Mr.
Gates persisted in his question, and
the witness replied that his animus in
writing the poem might have a good
complexion. "1 think it will do Mr.
Garland good if you read it," he added
beseechingly, but the committee de
clined to read the pamphlet.
Witness then said that when Mr.
Garland came back from "Hominy
Hall" and made that statement, which
swrned to reflect upon witness's letter
of the 20th, he thought that Garland
might have come out squarely and
have stated that what witness had
said in the letter was true. His si
lence in that regard had impaired Mr.
Garland greatly in bis (witness's) esti
mation. Mr. Miliard then inquired who had
called the meetings in tho Senate judi
The witness said that he did not
know. Probably it had been more
for Mr. Garlamf'b convenience than
tor any other reason. .
Mr. Kanney then took up the pam

personal knowledge of the statements
touching the institution of tliegovern

Nkw Orleans, La., Man-It 18. A
special from Winona, Miss., to the
Timr-Democrat gives the following par
ticulars of the circumstances leading
to the tragedy enacted at Carrollton,
Miss., yesterday: Some months ago
Robert Moore, a young man from Le
flore county went to Carrollton. There
he met Ed. Brown, colored, with
whom he had an altercation, and the
negro smeared and poured - on him
molasses which he carried in a jug.
J. M. IJddell, jr., of Greenwood, a
friend of Moore s, happened to meet
with Brown, and made some allusions
to his treatment of Moore. Brown
gave him impudence, and Liddell
started at him. but was prevented
by bystanders from attacking him.
The negro then went and armed
himself and induced others to do like
wise. They stationed themselves on
the street, some concealing them
selves behind trees. When Liddell
came, after supper, from the hotel he
saw them and asked what they meant.
Whereupon Ed Brown responded it
was none of his damned business. At
that Liddell struck at Brown with his
fist, and Ed and Charles Brown, his
brothers, both simultaneous tired upon
IJddell, one ball striking on the elbow
of his right arm. About this time
some fifteen or twenty shots were
tired from different quarters. Liddell
PULLED HIS I'ISTOL

and received one shot in the fleshy
part of his leg. Charles Brown was
shot in the shoulder. Tho parties who
had taken part in the all'ray were
brought before the Mayor forthwith,
waived an examination and were
bailed to appear before the next Cir
cuit Court. Threats were continually
made by the Brown brothers that they
would have Jim Liddell's blood. Fur
ther, they had five double-barreled
shotguns loaded seven fingers deep,
and w ould "kill the first man who put
bis foot on their ground." On tho
12tU instant they made an affidavit
against James Liddell and others, in
cluding some of the best citizens of
the pluce and men who knew nothing
of the difficulty, charging them with
assault and intent to murder in
Tin euBviofs Dirncvu'i'i
Previous to the opening of the trial
yesterday Brown boasted in the street
that he hail hisliody guard and w ould
shoot the first man that made a mo
tion in his direction. The cases were
called at noon, when the court-house
was immediately filled with negroes,
who stationed themselves around ami
about the Brown brothers. The at
torneys were proceeding with the case
when there suddenly appeared about
100 whito men, all well armed. Per
ceiving the'r entrance Ed Brown
drew his pistol and fired in the direc
tion of Liddell, who was between his
attorney and him. Thereupon the
shooting became general. Ten were
instantly killed and two others have
since died. Some escaped by jumping
tnrougli tne windows, a distance ol at
least twenty feet from the ground. On
most of the dead bodies .

The room was completely filled with
smoke. The Judge's bench is on the
north side of the room, and the
benches facing it are toward the
south. It is a very large court-room
with windows all around. On tho
south wall were counted 135 shot
holes ; in the wall of the passage lead
ing down stairs ten shot holes, and in
the benches thirty shot holes. One
snot strucK tne northeast wing sasli
and glanced into tho wall. Five other
shots show on the north wall from the
direction ol the benches. Largo pools
oi iiiood were on tne nooroi tne court
room. The mob then left as quickly
and quietly as tney came in. The
general impression is that it will end
in further trouble, as heretofore a few
of the negroes killed were constantly
creating Imd feeling, and led other
negroes peaceably inclined to produce
strue between tne wintes and blacks.

for complicity in the emliezzlctnent of
frank Jones, chief book-keeper of the
Chanipisn Works atMSpringtidd Ohio.
The arrest was made' by Pinkerton de

matter. Mies Carroll came to Rhea
county, Tenn., from Springfield two
years ago. She paid $5,000 cash for a fire
built and elc;ant residence, purchased
valuable property and at once became
a leader in society. She passed as a
wealthy heiress and waV courted and
greatly admired. As soon as she
learned of Jones's arrest at Springfield
she left Rhea county and started to
Florida, but was decoyed back by
telegrams from the detectives and at
once arrested. The chief Isxiks of the
Champion Company were found
buried in her house at Spring City
and other strong evidence socurotl
that she is ppvy to his defalcations,

impossible to get any one to state the
