COLFAX AND TUB MC-IULIEK.
WaiiunotoX, Feb. 1. Contrary to
general expectations Mr. Colfax did not
appear before tbe Credit Mobtller to-day.
Col. McCotnb wu aain put upon tlio
stand, and rnado i now cljarjja which m
pUlnly tnlendod to Injure Colfax. He
stated tbat In February, 11(37, ha recolved
a letter from Mr. Atnei, In which tho lat
tor asked if the stock ho hd placed in the
hands of Colfax, bad not been of great
benefit to the Union PaclQfl railroad, Inas
much ai Colfax had, while In the speaker's
chair In tbn senate, mado & ruling in tho
Interett of tho company. McCotnb was
uuablo to produce the letter containing lhl
question, and said ho presumed ho bad
Mr. AUiion was examined by Repre
sentative Steveni in relation to the Sioux
City and Dubuque railroad, but tho facts
elicited were unimportant.
At the lilting of Wilson's cotnmltteo
this morning, Webster Snyder, formerly
general superintendent of the Union Facl
lle railroad, testified ho (lid not know that
any government director! or commission
an wero nald anythini; bcsldos their mile-
'age and expenses for services, except Wu- j
dell, who U dail. Vauaeii wameu
$25,000, and ho wai paid ouio for colng to
Hryan, Wyoming, in 18C3. Waudell,
howover, did not pay much attention to
the road when there
truit loan, at.-! lmi remained about as de
posited; that la the only account he has.
Comstock was examined by ('rosier;
Said he did hot recollect paying a clieuk
for f 10,000 on CnMwell's account ; didn't
lay to MnJ. HopkliiMir Htiy olio !) that
he did nut knour anything of Caldwell'!
mccuuiiI, except what tho books
shows had no -onromlln with
Clark at Si. J.oul. about
accounts within n niofith ; made a mem-Qtandutn-book
ncco'arv to show Cald-
well't transaction with tho bank at
Clark's request J memorandum whs fur
nished after witness camo to Washing
ton; furrilihi'd a similar list to Carney
at St. J.ouls about his accounts when
Carney left for Washington.
Mnj. Hopkins testified that Comitock
told him substantially that he knew
nothing of the accounts exicpt wlmt Is
shown by the books.
McDowell t i-i till td that In a conversa
tion with Curney on tho day of the second
ballot, Cnrnoy said If Caldwell had as
small a vote as before, and it was evident
he could not ba elected, his friends were
determined that ho should again become a
candidate, and ho meant to do so, and
asked witness' advlco; wltntis advised
him not to, on the ground that It would be
bad faith; that ho con 1.1 not ba elected;
knew that Carney had agreed to with
draw; did not know nnythlng of 15,000 i
had heard nothing of It at that time.
Comitock was recalled and produced
the bcoks of tho First National bank,
showing, January IT, $5,000, and on the
Villi, one for $'J0O; this was not an un
usual amount for Levi Smith to draw, but
Smith and Caldwell had larye accounts ut
Levi F, Smith was examined by Crosier
to contradict Carney's evidence : Witness
never mid ho had agreed to
pay Ji,500 or any other sum
to any other legislator for bis vote; didn't
say the prjco of a vote was about one
thousand dollars or anything liko it;
nevor said ha was bound to carry the
election if It cost dim $1&0,000; the only
chock he ever asked Jacob Smith to cash
was for $1(0; thinks he did spoak to him
about caching u check for $2,000, but it
was said in tbo presence of others; it
wai a mero joke; denied individually
Carney's statements that he had oll'ertd to
bribe certain members named.
Judge Crosier produced n cbeck for
$7,000 which witness ti he drew at the
Taffc bouse In Topeka on tbo 19lh; tba
cbeck wasshown to Comstock, who said it
i was cubed on the 23d of January.
Crosier called attention to fact that
Carney's endorsement was not written
with the tame ink as the face of the
cbeck, to disprovo Carney's statement
that the check was drawn on the 22d or
:3d, and that he endoraed ft as soon us it
nniount of extraordinary expenditure
during January $1,060,234.
WANTS) TO lilftUI.VR,
l'mi.ADKM-HU, Fob. 1. In the court
of common pl'jas, J tidl Allison referred to
tho prayer of tho petition of tho Credit
Mobilier for diisolutlon, which was asked
for on tho cround that since.! uly 180B, the
corporation transacted no business. The
udgo says congress Is now investigating
as to tho claims of the government against
tho corporation, and therefore tho court
bould not do anything to prejudice the
rcdlti of the custom.

If he wanted any money ho must get it

panel of jurors from which tho jury was
elected was prepared in tbe Interest of
of the defendant. One of tho jury he
ays was what is known as n bummer and
loafer, and was provldod with a new
