of the dial with the eonlncssnf a veteran

The numerous Investigations drag on,
but the interest which I km centered
mainly In the war claims and Judiciary
committees, involving the eacs of Itel
knap and I'.abeoek, appeared (or the mo
ment eclipsed by the sensational report
that were published in relation lo the
testimony of ex-Attorney General Wll
Hams, making It appear Hut Iho presi
dent had been guilty of llie grossest
fraud and misuse of tlie public fund.
These report to sav the lead, have be
greatly exaggerated. II appears that
iiisnursenient of Km s:n 11111 n in
port, was not regular In the at
sense, but there was nothing In it to suTi
stantlate the grave charges that have
been made against President Grant.
From tlio testimony 11 seems that one
Davenport, who was an nld-de-camp of
General Ilutlcr during the war, had spent
much time and money In the self-imposed
task of making a registration of tlie voters
of Xew York city with a view lo tlie pre
vention of fraud In elections. To use
his own language, the work had become
a hobby with him, ami he had become nl.
most ImporerMied In hi- ell'ort to carry
It to a successful completion. He sug.
gested to President Grant, who, It seems
approved his work, that the fund ap
propriated for the detection and punish
ment ot election frauds might be rr-ed to
defray tlio expenses of the registration.
To this view, then Attorney General, Mr.
Akerman, and his successor .Mr. Wil
liams, us well as the president ascnted.
the latter giving a verbal order for tlio
payment of Hie money, which was not
handed directly to Davenport, but took
thc usual channel of appropria
tions for the i-ecrct service
through tho chief ol the .-ecret
service bureau, Hiram C. Whitley. Hence
it will bo seen that the responsibility lor
tire disbursement tests quite as much
with the attorney general, who Is the
legal adviser ot tlie president himself.
This Hiram '. Whitley -will be remem
bered as the man who was Indicted about
two years ago and tried with itlchard
Harrington and Arthur 11. Williams for
complicity in tlie sate burglary con
spiracy. He litis recently turned up hero
likeati universal witness, ho testifies much
and often, before tho grand jury and
different congressional committees, he
has contested all that ho labored so hard
to disprove during tlte safe burglary trial,
and it is now said that he was a member
of tho whisky ring, and will furnish evi
dence Implicating prominent parties, and
produce paper to prove conclusively the
guilt ot Gen. Uabcock.
Xo investigation lias excited such pro
found horror as that of Dr. Nichol'8 ad
ministration of the government insane
asylum. The investigation has gone on
for days and Is an almost endless recital
of blood curdling atrocities perpetrated
upon the helpless lunatics. They havo
been beaten, starved, overworked and
frozen. If It were not for the convincing
proof furnished hi tlie great amount tf
cumulative and corroborating evidence,
It would be too Incredible for belief that
such cruelties have been perpetrated
