ATTOItNEY OGNBltAL SCOTT,
Attorney-General Scot! was the next
Witness, He said he hail bcou a mom
Tier of the Hoard since 1890, Ho then '
told of Ibo adoption of Ibe Stale con?
tracts, th e meetings ol the Bourd, tho
iinpoiiiinily of book Bgontfl and the
adoption ol the resolution saying that
agents of pubiisbors wotiltl not be ul
Jowed to address the Hoard orally.
Mu] Scott km:.I bo thought he was
responsible for tho circular, Hint be
endorsed il. Ho was very busy ajid
that the book agent consumed nearly
all of his time.
He told Ibe Governor and Mr. .Mas
nev thai something would have to be
dono, and m Ina suggestion the ISonrtl
I hat tin re never hiiti boon atiything
like slur chamber proceedmgN, That
tin re witR notbing in'Mr. .MasHey's con?
duct to distinguish him from other
members of the Hoard.
He explained that Mr. Hyrd came
tiefuro tho Hoard of Kiiucaiiou and
?bought it atruugo that bo t.Hcott) bad j
prktt load the^ contraot lor books;'
that he i Hoott), liko the rest of linmon- j
ity, is open tu criticism, but that tie
didu't hku to i>o oritioised thoa und
there; that he has since read the con?
tract and found it an expression of
what the Hoard decided to do. Wit?
ness has investigated thu charges.of
discrimination against Virginia in the
book contract uud found tliom tin*
founded. Witness then tcstitied that
from ins knnwlecgo of Mr. Massoy since
hu tiucatuu nc<iuaiuted with bun in 1881
Ins reputation has beou good.
To Capt. Wise Attoruey-Geueral
Scott said hu Dover understood that
the March njeetmg of 1890 was a final
ndoptiou of books that year-, witness
beard about thnt tinio that Mr. Massey
was unduly prejudiced in favor of some
books, oud ho (.Scott i said at tho time:
"(iivc uio the evidence and I'll attend
to it,' l>ut it was not Riven.
Capt. Wise theu asked tho witness if
Mr. Massey's reputation since l^SSl has
been os pood as his (Scott's).
Tho witness said Hint the only difTer
eude between Mr. MoRscy and himself
in that period has I icon I lint charges

To Mr.Thorn, said thnt ho practically
put out of his oflice tho Mini, who said
Mr.MaBSOy had been bribed.as the uiHti
could net produce tho evidence to
support Ins statement: that he has beou
alert as to Mr. Massey since tbu charge
was uiude and had no reason to believe
the charges true.
nov. i. r. o'fbrrall.
When Ciov. O'Ferrall came down
from I lie judge's beuob to testify, there
was a hum ol voices all over tho bouse,
and the crowd drew nearer to see and
hear Virginia's gallant Governor, He
bind that he had tead the article in the
Pilot several tunes. Ha said he
knew as well us Mr. Massey that
there were competing book agents
in Itichtnoud in 1894. There wore a
great many agents for book houses
in Kichmotid the latter part of the
Legislature in 1 >'.)!, Mr. llvrd was
there as well us Mr. Womacli und oth
ers. These ugeuts came into my office
at all times without knocking and un?
bidden. Anybody who knows ol book
agents know what kind ol men they
ate. there win, no unseemly haste in
the ndoptiou of 1891, I bad the same
time to prepare uiyseli on the book
question that tho other governors
had, lie sau nothing iu Mr. Mas
sey's conduct that would cause bun
to think that Mr. Massoy was any
more anxious to got through with the
book adoption than were the other
members. He suid the rcusou for the
adoption of 1891 was that the School
Superintendent wanted four ehuugei,
und furthermore, the hard times mould
have made a ohauge oppressive upon
Ibe people, tin tins account he be?
lieved he would l uve beeu doing the
people of tbe State u great wrung hud
ne favored u radicul change.
Mr. Neely read several paragraphs
from Ibe article in the Pilot uud usbed
it there was any star chamber proceed
iug, and the Governor said no, unless
tbe refussl to let the book agents in
made it so. He hud examined the oon
trauts of the various States, und was
satistied that in no proper sense had
there been any discrimination against
Virginia in the book contracts.
In reuardto tbe charges subsequently
made by ihe Pilot, thnt tho Governor
aud Attorney-General m their exami?
nation of book mutters iu tho various
States bad omitted some Slates, be
toutnl that iu those States referred to
there were uo Stute contracts, but on
liuther investigation he fouud that tue
Pilol had been comparing purchasing
prices in those States with Holling
prices in Virginia.
The Governor was next questioned
ns to the vnluo of the books sold iu
Virginia, also the exchange list. In
reference to Mr. Massoy controling
tho Hoard the Governor said Mr. .Mns?
sey was equal to either of the mem
hers ol the Hoard, but that two heals
diio as eight beats seven. He bad
found .Mr. Mnssey considerate and
deferential. Ho considered Mr. Mus
Key's general reputation good; had
known him siuce 18(59; would believe
him on oath or oil oath.
Tho Governor said ho tnlktd with
Mr. Massey nhout the suit and told
him he ought to proceed criminally as
well as civilly, anil that Mr. Massey
replied that he had already decided
upon tiie course ho would pursue.
To Judge Heath the Governor said
ho had never charged Mr. Massoy with
ii sropntiible conduct, but hud heard
othets make the charges.
Judge Heath asked if ho thought
Mr. Massoy'e repiitutiou was as good
a.-. Ins | tbe t lover nor),
Ho said: As to any ditToreuce of
reputation between himself and Mr.
Massey. that tho only difference bo
knows is that ho i Mr. Massey > has
hi en charged with things wineh ho
initiiessi has not; Hint it is easy to
make a charge, but harder to prove it.
tiov, O'Ferrall, when questioned,
refused to make any comparison of his j
and Mr. Massey'a character. Ho uttid ,
it wusn delicate Question to ask bun.
Tho question was argued, Mr. Neely
objecting and Capt. Wise insisting
that it was a proper question, M,
SVise said: 1 wont Gov. O'Ferrall to
make n rocord, I don't want bun to ]
dodge the question.
Uov. O'Ferrall replied: 1 biu not a I
dodger, Capt. Wise, ns yon well know.

joining yard; The cellar was thor?
oughly aoarcbed, every spot being
turned up tu a depth of some faet.
The yard was carefully explored and
the old cistern examined, but nothing
was found, and it now seems certain
that Iho boy was murdered and his
body disposed of in Detroit.
A few hmoll bones were discovered,

been mistuug, but on examination at
the morgue they wore found to be
