-op'v of an all'nliivit of Zeiuis Fiali
AVilW-r, sworn to about seven weeks
ago, ami offered to your committee.
The jiersotm who ollerd this to the
committee are now at 1'altimore and
New Orlean, in the United Stated
' Court, defend'iiK units for infringing
my patents. 1 am informed that tes
timony for linal hearing is now being
taken "in both those, eases. If those
persons, or any one else associated
with these defences, think that any
eturt would believe what Mr. Wither
nwearsto, it would be their duty anil
their interoKt to call liiin as a witness;
lie could then ' e cross-examined and
bis truthfulness or want of truthful
ness es'ahlished. If tbev heliev
them they will do so. 1 an not
disposed, ' however, to let bis
HtatcmcnlR fail fr denial, and,
therefore, incloso with this my afh
davit 1 also call your attention
to his various affidavits made before
this one. At the request of Mr. Van
ISetithnysen and others, ho ninie an
allidavit at Washington on July, '11,
18S and repeated it on August del
This was tiled before the Secretary of
the Interior by the petitioners lor the
government unit. In that Ins only
gro md of attack upon my pBteut
rested upon a written communiiation
of cell uarv !, Hi), ana on Ins pres
out opinion of the rules of law on the
ubect. lie did not suggest uny
other communication, nor any fraud.
On October 10, I MH'i, before 1 or any
one interested with me bad communi
cated w ith him, my opponent tonk
another allidavit from him and filed it
before the SccMaryof tho Interior,
anil it is printed on page .112 of the
prinU-d record of tho testimony then
used. In that he Btates in terms that
be gave no information about the
tiray caveat beyond what appuarti in
the oltieial communications in tho
flies Subsequently Mr. Wilher made
an allldavi. October 21, 1H8.", which
wasjused on behalf of my patent befo'e
th Secretary of the Interior. It
contains the following: "In the
conduct of such application, there was
no fraud of any kind whatevor, nor
any thing, any transaction, any com
munication, oral or written, which
would support any such allegation in
the least manner whatsoever, either
on the part of I'rof. Dell, hii attorney,
myself or any sHlier person whatso
ever." I call your attention to the
fact, wh'ch appeared before the Secre
tary of tho Interior, tint the whole of
tho iHidavit, covering more than
twelve pagea of foolscap, is in Mr.
Wilher's handwriting Subsequently,
and on November 10, 1H85, Mr. Wil

no, allusion to tho topic now referred
to. 11 tn printed on pag !577 of tho

I, Alexander (indium Dell, bo
ing duly sworn, on oath depose
and say: 1 reside in Washing
ton, Wstriet of Columbia. I am
the inventor to whom were issued
letters patent of tho United States.
No 174.405, dated March 7, lS7ti. I
have read In the Washington '. of
May '.'2, lHStl, what purports to be an
allidavit of Kenan Kisk Wilber, sworn
to April 8, 188t. 1 never present tl,
paid, gave or banded to Zenas l'"isk
Wilber n f 100 bill or any other bill, or
any money, or" any valuable consider
ation, or thing, at the placo ho men
tions, or any other place for any pur
pose whatever. I never promised to
or undertook to, or attempted to, or
expressed any willingness to pay any
money or any valuable consideration
or thing whatever for any purpose. I
never knew, or h-dieved, or heard
that Mr. Dailey, or Mr. Pollock, or
anyone else undertook to influence
Hiiid Willi-r, or made any attempts to
do so, or employed or en icavored to
employ any corrupt practices to ob
tain in said letters patent, and do not
believe so now. So far as my per
sonal acts and knowledge a e
concerned I know that all pro
ceedings in the tiling and prosecu
tion of the application for my part and
in the grant of it. were free from fraud
and trickery and honest in all respects ;
and 1 believe that all the acts of
others concerned were slso in all re
spects honest. I make these tato-
uionls in the fulle-l and broaden
sense. Mr. Wilber did rot show me
li ay's caveat or the drawing of it, or
any'portion of either. I have never
soon the original papers of that caveat
and 1 did not evoj see a copy of them
until after tho lowd suit was brought,
which a in tho fall of 1S78. When
I s w Mr. Wi ber about my applica
ton, in IsTii, he took up lny original
application raperN and pointed i par-
."j'riiph which was in them when the
application was originally tiled, Keb
ruary I t, ls7il. and has not been
changed since, and wh ch contained
the following passage: 'The entemal
resistance may also be varied. For
inst inee, let n ercury or some other
liquid form art of a voltaic circuit,
then f e mo e iiccpty the conducting
wire is i miner oi in the mercury, or
other liquid, the less resist
ance li en the liquid otter to
to the passage of the cii'rer.t.
Hence the vibration of the conducting
wire in mercury or other liquor in
eluded in tho circuit occasions undu
lations in the current." Mr. Wilbor
s lid that the caveat I had put
in interfered wi h that. 1 did
not have any other knowledge of
the contents of (iray's caveat, specifi
cation or draw ing, or either of them,
until altn- tiray had published the
caveat in ls7s, ecept what Mr. li:ay
wrotLMUe himself about bis caveat

from oi t Smith thu morning. II in
leading opuonont, W. L. Terry of
Li tie Bix:k, is alio here. The per
sciul proeeuio of Judge Rogers has
gone far toward bringing back to bis
support men who hail I r years atooa
shoulder to uhoulJtr with him in the
ro.iteets of vore. and who bad bo-
come alienate I throngh the recoin
mndatlon ma Ie by hi in fjr postmas
ter at this pla?e. Soino of these party
friends, who had been warm personal
fii'iml! of It ignis since 1:0 came to the
Sthl 1 in lsiill, concluded in their haste
that he had d h retarded their wishel
and indors.-iinn'H in the matter of ap
pointing a postmaster. It ia hard
ly probable, however, that tbeie
good men will allow the acts of their
representative done in the beat faith
and indo-sdd by some of their nearest
neighbors to give them cause for turn
ing their vole against a man who ha j
in all o'.hor rutqicrti coma up to tbo
In), measure of duty.
Arrangements were wade by the
citizens t ulay to have the Congres
sional (spirants rpen the rnma'gi
heie to night. At 8 o'c'ock the opera
house was tilled by ladies and gen
tlemen from the town and country.
Col. Teny was Introduced by Oen.
Thoinasin. Ho chargjd thai Judge
Kog-'rs had done t:o much for Fort
Smith and t )o little for the district at
lare; that against the recommenda
tion cf the engineer he pushed an ap
propriation through Congress which
was not for the iienral good but for
protoct'on cf private property along
the river at Kort Smith; that in cer
tain railioad legislation Kogors never
manifmted r.eal ui.til be heard from
Fort Smith and ascertained the wishes
of his borne people; that h's full in
teieit was not enlisted In piuhlng
through what is known as the Valley
Route bill until he found that bis de
lay was making enemies for him.
Kozerj replied in aipeech of two
hours and vindicated his record by
facts. As bo discuesed his record and
showed the good judgment need by
him in tiled ng legislation for bis dis
trict, the audience manifes'ed unmis
takable approval by rounds of ap
plause. Kogers gavo tbo r.lftory
of bis connection with the Valley
Route bill in full, and showed
tbat on two occasions be had secured
the promise of Mr. Oirllsle to recog
nize Mr. Perkins of Kansas, who bad
the bill in charge from the committee.
Dy mine accident Mr. Perkins did not
reach the House in time, and hence
tno matter went over. Mr. Rogers ob
tained third promise from the Speak
er to recoiniu Mr. Perkins. Mr. Per
kins cime In on time, brought the
mutter up, uninluious consent was se
cured and the bill went throngh.
While Kogers wai giving thcie fact!
Tirry Inquired what was the date ol
tho Iranraction. Rogers replied tint
ho rould not give the Cates. They
c.uld be dcBoitely given if the gen
tleman desired ; that he hardly
thought il was luatniiil at this
point of the discussion, and
that quibbling over such points
was more worthy of vioiaroad politi
cians than ot gmtlemen discussing
public questions bidoro gn intelligent
audience. Ttrry, in a dlgnillod way,
said: "I will have tbat qui st loot J
the people." Applause Rogxrsre
plhd: "fuel ia not a mat erof choice
with you. You will have to leave it to
the people." Continued applause,
Ti e trrfument was oncludsd oy
Mr. Terry. The del ate Is icgardad aa
able on dcth sit e?, and the beet bad
in this section in many years. Terry
is a vount man of brainp, a lawyer of
good record and recognized anility.
Hut the recoid of Rogers as a repre-
s'ntaiive makes him a strong man be
doe the people, and the indications
are tbat bo will be indored by bis
district for a third term. These dis

ceive! the reply, ' I think not."
"Have you sent for him?"
Mr. Turner reeinod snrprisfd a tbe
question, end said, "No, we dn't
want bim ; bo is not a dlega'c "
A number of the d'leHtes feel
keenly the tact that Grand Mister
Workman Powderly ia overworked,
and think that be should be asiisted
in some manner. Two plans bavo
been proposed, and will probably be
presented at tbe conventir n. Oce is,
that Hiato Assemblies be orginized in
each Sut 1 1 ) look eftpr the allaiis in
the distant that would come tinder
their supervision, they in turn being
an x diary to and under the snpiv
viniou of the General Ass'uuiiy.
Kich. State Assembly would receive
instructions and supplies from the
General Assembly, and distribute the
supp'ies as nocdsd by district and
local assemblies. The organization of
new assemblies would also be pari of
the work looked af.er and guided by
the State organizations The oilier
plan is to have an executive board in
en'h State, ruhject to the direction of
the general boaid.
The subject of the most import
ance to come before the Cleveland
Convention is the relations of the
Knights of Labor to trade anions.
"The mutter mutt he discursid and
acted upon with caution," said a mem
ber of a Cleveland assembly yester
day. "X believe tbat the Knights of
Labor should be subordinate to no
organlzition. The difficulty between
tbe trades unions and our organiza
tion arises wi h the (fficers of the
forme, who are af aid that there may
be no need for trades unions in tbe
future, in which case their fat salaries
and occupation will be gone. The
Knights of Labor are broader than
the unions. For instance, if in a
shop of twen'y-four men, twenty
throe are members of the order und
one is not, as long is the man who ia
outside receives the same pay as tbe
other no'.hing ie done to coerce him
or tbe employers. He need not join
the order. We invito members bat
do cot force any man to unite bis lot
with oars, and al'iiougb he Is not re
ceived ai a brother, no distinction is
made other than in fraternal feeling. On
the other hand, if tbe sume condition
of affairs existed in a union shop tho
union men would lorce the non-1
uniinist to join their order or they
would strike. Tho most serious diu-
sstihfiction existing is with the
National Cigar-Maker s anion, which,
I understand, will insist tbat the as-
I 'libly labels be di (continued, and
only tbe blue label of the union used.
The patrjns, the greatest extent, are
mem hers of tho Knight of Litbor, and
if it were not for us the labeled cigirs
would never have become so well
known. It seems to mo tbat the
broach can only be hea ed by a joint
convnniiea of tho trades' unions and
tbe K eights of Labor, although there
maybe other wajs of fixing up mat
Didegatts to the Knight i of Labor
Convention, which convenes here to
morrow, are arriving to-day ia large
numbeis, and the opening meeting
will be a miccets so far as attendance
is ccn.!f rned. The Executivo B;anl
