suits brought ngninst importers of rorein
goods, who during tho war, paid custom
to tho confederate olliclnl. Tho proceed
ings hnd ben instituted to recover to tlio
United .States tho amount Unit paid as
import luxes. Tho attorney gon.iral takes
the ground Unit tlio confederate govern-
to settlo with Cohurn: 1 think ho said !
Hlalno piirclinedi;101000or':01O00 worth
of bonds whiclrpnld him ulghty or ninety
eonts on tho dollar. In reply
to lilaine witniv snid this
c uivorintlon occurred u Yew days before
ho otrered the roolulion ; witness had nil
the dutnils before bo ollered tho resolution;
tlic conversation with Ames was not at
the Arlington house after ho ollered the
resolution; wat present and heard
Stevenson's testimony; wat put on tho
stand and sworo positively bo never had
any conversation with Stevenson on tho
subject until tho night after his roiolutlon
hud been adopted.
lllaln was tucn sworn, and said that tho
contracting company in tho Iowa Falls
and Sioux City mil rond wero his highly
valued friends. A. and I. C'oburn of
Maine, in January last, in sottling up
s omu business with M-utt. Coburn he took
a quantity of stock of this road
for vhiuh ho pnid about sixty cents in
cvh. This was the first of his "ownership
in ilio road. He holds stock in his own
nrtine, and congre in his opinion can no
more bo called on to irive.itigato than it
could enifiiiru into tho weekly expenses of
his household. Ho made tho explanation
without tlio slightest reluctance. Th
road could not come before congress for
nnvtliing. Ha further teslilled ho owned
j7i; shares, for which ho paid f DJ.iOO, nnd
had over since been living in tho liopo i
that they would draw dividends, but up
to this timu thoy ha-J not. Laughter.
lio was not, generally, in Ibo railroad
liusinejs. Would like to to in It more.
Iluught $0,000 worth of bonds from Ames
mid paid him eighty cents on tho dollar.
At another timo I lmuglit $15,000 worth,
think, from Ames, for which
paid hi in eighty cents on tho dollar;
that, I believe, was in the wintor of 1870
or 1(171. J turned them into tho Messrs.
Coburn, partly at one prleo and partly at
unolhur, some of them at !0 ninl some at
Stevenson was then examined by Amer,
but tho latter had no additional testimony
to give, but evinced much dissatisfaction
with Stevenson. Questions as to not be
ing pertinent to the inquiry of this brunch
of tho investigation wero then closed and
the committee resumed the Credit Mob!
Senator Logan nppeurcd and testified
thul he had agreed to tako ten shares in
the stock of Mr. Ames, but paid no money
down. Subsequently rendered him a
statement, that the dividends hnd paid for
tlio stock and S3'J9 besidos. Ames on tho
10th of June, 1808, gnvu him a check for
$'J29, which ho took, with tho un
derstanding that if ho. concluded not to
tnku tlio stock ho would return the money.
Thrco or four days afterwards ho drew
tho money on tho check. On tho "0th of
July ho paid bucc to Ames tho $329 nnd
$2 interest, having determined not to hold
the stock. If ho had kept tiio slock bo
would havo como beforo tho committee
liko a man nnd acknowledged it,
II, C, Swain, '.'asliior of the First Na
tional bank of this district, was tlio next
witness sworn, and in answer to a question
by Judgo Poland stated ho had brought
tho books of tho bank with hinv contain
ing tho accounts of CUfax, in answer to
thu summons. Upon turning to tho ac
count of Colfax, Judgo I'oland put tho
following question : State whether it ap
pears upon your books that Colfax made
a doposit on tho "2d of Juno?
Yoi, sir, $t,'Ji9,52. Great sensa

Would tho entry on this ledger indi

Judgo Poland thon requested tho wit

Nkw YoitK, Jan. 23. In tho Tweed
trial, tho case for the prosecution closed.
Tho defenco opened by calling witness to
impeach evidunco of J. A. (Jnrvoy, und to
show his ''animus" In giving evidence by
proving ht-'said in court when not on tho
stand ho would send Tweed to stales
prison if ho hung for it, but tho court
ruled out tho greater part as Irrelevant
and contrary to rule. Counsel also want
ed to show tint Tweed's duty as street
commissioner made it impossible to do
more than to attach his signature to bills;
that ho could scrutinize them, und henco
could not bo found guilty of willful neg
lect; but the court held that a public of
fleer, when ho could not givo proper atten
tion to his olllce, had the remedy to re
sign. At half-past four the counsel for tho
defense, having no moro witnesses present,
usked leave lo introduco witnesses to-morrow,
promising lo occupy less than an
hour's timu, und tbo court adjourned.
