culpable in connection with thu frauds.
Judge Daris declined to hear tho details

Dcently transparent that Ourvcy's testi
mony was that of a man who had
been proinl.ed protection. Oarvey fur
ther testified when he wont to
Europe ho was worth over one million
dollars, acquired between 'OS aud "72 ; said
he always intended to return, but that his
friends told him they would not fight his
battles for him unless he went away. On
being questioned as to v io these friends
were, he said they wero Tweed, Sweoney,
Connelly and Hunk Smith.

Answer: "Ho was ombraced In tho lot,
but couldn't expect Hall to fight my bat
tles for mo."
After recess Gurvey, on cross-examination,
stated that the wholu amount of bis
claims, real and ficticious, wero (200,000
Real ones mutt bo about $30,000. The
valuo of his wife's diamonds sinco 1671
was about $12,000. Tweed prciented him
with some articles of silvor on his mar
riage, 'vtiich ho still has. There was no
agreement to oxtricato him from his
troubles if he gavo evidence, lie was
worth about $100,000 in 18C3. The ques
tion as to details of property was excluded,
and exception was taken. SVltne.s admit
ted certain roceipts produced wero for
payments mado by Tweed for work at
Oreenwicb. One check for $20,000 ho
said ho never had in his hand before. Ho
admitted to ono paper being revised, tha
tho endorsement was his. Oarvey sus
tained cross-examination irforo coolly
than was expected, but he
caused frequent bursts of laugh
ter by (his queer ways. He ob
jected to bolng tied down to strictly direct
answers. Ho spoke of city officials as tho
quartette. Ho had everything cntored,
dny and date, on a memorandum book
Ho must bo worth nearly a million of dol
lars, from his statements. Tho last item
examined was one of about $119,000 for
building a houso for Dick Connolly, on
Fifth avenue, of which ho received $71,-
000 for labor and materials. Ho never, to
bis best recollection, told the grand jury
that he received a cent on
propsrty from Tweed. Various
receipts passed to Tweed by
Garvey for his sums, ranging from $20,000
to $30,000 during 1808 and 1870. They
wero put in by deficients as past proof
represents as being allowod him by
Tweed on bills against tho city; wero paid
by Tweed himself, and not by tbo city.
