Washington, .March . For llitvp

riiliiled about bv l.lainc friends that he
was to uiake a" iersonal explanation, in
w hich Hie man from Maine was to ciiim
a great sensation. , -
The only part of the programme that
Wi given out was the reading of the let
ters. When lilaine drew thein from his
locket and tragically waived them over
his head there was not much leellng in
the house, a few declaring that hm-Ii a
proceeding was adding insult to injury.
TACTICS TO COVi:a IT.LY I'OISTS.
The two strong point against lifeline in
the letters were received Willi great glee
by his enemies, and the w hen reading ol
the letters was finished Blaine's stocks as
down. He knew what he had to do and
that what he said from then on would
ecltle his chances. .So he turned to the
re)orters, told them to be . earelitl to
catch his exact language, and with meas
ured words began the working tip of a
climax, over which he had probably sat
up the night before. As he progressed
there were several outbursts of applause
which Speaker Cox ordered to be
stopped. But wlien Blaine charged
Knott with suppressing a cablegram
from Caldwell, giving its contents there
arose a perfect roar of applause, 1 1 was
not cotiliued to clapping of hands as it
rirst started, around Blaine, but yell

gallery, which lasted for a minute at
least, which completely drowned the
sound ot the gavel, and orders wire given

THE ACTING, NOT THE I-OIXT. AITLAl L-KD.
Wlien it had subsided. Democrats,
friends and enemies of Blaine, discovered
that the magnetism ol Blaine had com
pletely carried away, and that all alike
tiiey had been diet-ring, not altogether
the point made, but the acting of the ex
speaker. Blaine demanded an answer
trom Knott, but getting none, reiterated
tiie charge in much stronger terms and
each tollowing wntence caused even
louder applause than the proceeding one.
lie had carried his point, and when llun
ton arose to reply it was thought nothing
could be said from that side of the house.
Both liunton and Knott, however, Ik-M
up to tlie house the unexampled proceed
ing of a member taking an investigation
out of the hands ot an organ ot the house
and bringing his own one-sided report.

Since the recent exciting investigation
of Blaine began, the complaint of the

proceedings has Increased and on more

wlierein Blaine was connected, has liecn
a matter ot general comment here. Bab

HfKAKCK KLKR'S 6TATCMK.NT.
Toe sjieaker came into the committee
room quite leeble, aud presented tho fol
lowing statement, w hic.li was read by
Wlien 1 entered congress in 105 1 un-k-rstooU
that some kind of reorganiza
tion ot the army was in progress and that
a considerable number of lieutenants
were to be apjioluted in the sauie way.
I did not understand that this was to be
lone under provisions of uny pre-existing
law or of any department regulation
authorized by such law, but that it .was
lieing done under some voluntary regu
lation made by the department. 1 did
not understand that the appointment
was a legal right vesical in a representa
tive, or a duty imposed tqon him by a
like appointment ot cadeU to acada
inics, but rather a privilege given
hiui by the war department.
1 remember ucelng in the public press
. some department order ou the subject,
tlie terms of which 1 do not rcincmbt r.
Well, 1 know that I regtniVd the ap
pointment as due to my district or Mate
in preference to all others if au applica
tion was inaie. 1 remember quit Ui
tlnctly tlial 1 ottered a recommendation
to two of my constituent at dillmiit
Uuirs in ISWJ, Col. I'hos. J. Jaekson and
auotuer whose uame 1 feel quiu, coull
dent was Major Tho. Morrkon. l.m i.i
whom had reudtred gallant service in the
voluutoer army. 1 am put in doubt as to
. the tender of the place U Morrison by
. Ihelact that he, iu I learn tliromh n.v-
law partner at home, thinks that oiler of
trie anpoiuimeui wm inau to him In
157 iostcad of W-0. U 1 ant mistaken at

1 am not aware that any Democratic, sol
dier ever applied to nie tor a Mace
absolutely kuow that 1 held the appoint

district or but, if any should apply. But
bom applied ot on of w bom 1 have
tiss) alifUttit rtcollectlou. When the
hiiig session of congress wa well ad
vanced and the tune lor t lice npjxiiiii

upon by Augustus I, tin-en, of New

lie never was at my room. He never
Visited nie anywhere. 1 never talked
with hint on any business mat
ter whatever. He never paid or pro
posed to p.iv me one penny in the world.
IIU whole r'tatemctit ou that subject Is
uileilv and wickedly laNe. It Is simply
impossible that I d.uld have talked with
him on a matter so laiauv iuoiiuji
honor, otliclal decency and personal
safetv, and not have retained a Vivid rec
ollection of the fact. But 1 w as intro
duced in some way to t: recti, and my
recollection is that the first Interview we
had was- on one of the sofas in the hall of
the house, during a session of t he house.
1 listened to his .story, witnessed lii-
auxietv to get back into the army and
admired the enthusiasm Willi which In
voke ol his services in the volunh ere
army, lie exhibited to nie his testimo
nials, those 1 mean tiled by bin. early in
the session. Whether he cxhibit-d to
me the originals of lhce papers or copies
ol them. I do not distinctly re
member, but I do remember lint
thev were regarded by me a highly cred
itable to him. 1 also remember having
sal 1 to him In substance that I admired
his soldierly build and bearing, but said
to him: "ou are comparatively a
stranger to n o, Most of these gentle
men whose recommendation you pro
(luce are Grangers to me. It you can
fret some recommendations irom i i siiiis
ii New Vork vvho.u I know in person or
by reputation,! w ill feci inclined to consid
er your application favorably." lie an
e weird allinnatively that he could ; that
he .vould return to New Vork and get
them, lie did go away; how long he
was gone I do not know, but it 1 were to
tlx any time I would say it could hardly
have liecn less than a week.
He did return with several recommenda
tions, tdionkl think not less than half a
dozen Irom persons ot the kind 1 had in
dicated, who did recommend him, both
on personal grounds and as a soldier. I
regarded those recommendation to
gether with others I had seen a clearly
placing him within the requirements of
the law or regulation, and upon the
whole cae thus made 1 gave him the rec
ommendation, saying to him at the same
time 1 had no application Irom home, and
thought it -quite tafe to assume at that
late dav that there would be noin. Mr.
tjreen states that 1 went with him to the
war department. My recollection is to
the contrary, and that my inter
course wiih the department was con
ducted by letter. I feel quite clear of
an impression that I required flreen to
goto the department and get the precise
lorni of words that would meet the re
quirements of the department lor inc to
endorse on his application, and that I did
simply copv that form on the bark of his
application It is possible, however, that
in this I tnav lie mistaken.
Mr. Kerr coiilirnied the statement of
witness Moore in reference to an attempt
to ascertain who the writer ot the
anonymous letter was, and stated posi
tively that when he went to New Vork
on ten days' A-ave of absence it was on
account ot his health and had no connec
tion with the Harney matter. Alter a
cross-examination by various mendx-rs.
the committee adjourned.

WAMiivtiTox, June 2 l'ersonal fet ling
over the Blaine investigation runs even
higher to-night than it did yesterday.
The proceedings to-day have been less
dramatic, but the ttruggle of Mr. Blaine
and his friends to ward oil the force ot
the blow has bei-n more, desperate. The
eonunittec-rooiu was iiucomtortablv
crowded. The witnesses spoke iu such
low tones that it was ditliciilt to hear
them across the tabic. Blaine and Frye
alone were impetuous ami loud-voiced,
and the result was three hours of half
sulIocuUuii aud paiufully-iutcnsc listen
ing, it is ditlieult to night to form un
intelligent and unbiased opinion as to the
result of the day's investigation, and
almost impossible to It ml any two
who, haying heard the testimony,
arc of tho same, opiiiiun. Mr.
Blaine's friends discuss the question
very heatedly, denounce Mulligan ve
hemently as a thief w ho stole private let
ters and kept them for a Mni-tcr pur
pose, and claims that the close of the day
leaves Mr. Blaine iu a much U tter light
than the beginning. et Mr. Fisher tes-
tilled that he had full knowledge that
Mulligan had thu letters ; that he brought
them to Washington with his ( Fisher')
lull and free pcrmis.-ioii ; that Mulligan
read the letters to him on the way here
from New Vork, and that he did not ask
Mulligan to give them up until alter In:
reached Washington, it is undoubtedly
true from the evidence that Mulligan pos
itively rclused to gire up the letters
ither to Blaine or Fisher, and w bile in
a state of great excitement, slated iu lan
guage more forcible than polite that he
would not deliver the letters to anybody.
and would print them in vindication ot
huiisclt it anylMMly utaiiy time, any where
attempted to break down his
evidence or to impeach his ve
racity. But ou the other hand it
appears that this state of excitement
was the result ol a mysterious interview,
in which Mulligan stiilass. rUthat Blaine
made such piteous amx-als to him that he
himself wa moved to tears. And It
seem to be an incontrovertible tact that
the evidence tends to put Blaine into the
exceedingly bad position of a man who,
all other means failing, to obtain io.s--h-tioiu
of certain letters, got them by giv
ing ins promise to a gentleman to return
them, aud has broken his promise. The
fact that Blaine was for a number ol
$ trafficking Willi and through Fisher
nil Fort Smith and Northern i'aciiic
bonds and btocks is established to a moral
certainty. That he was at one time iu
porM sMon ot a vast block of 1 ort Smith
st.x-k and bond is well established.
What Is not yet established is that Blaine
received f 10,000 ot preferred slock.
Mulligan says he knows it as a fact, and
Bl.due does not deny it, and the only
consideration which as yet apitear lo
have la-en given was Blaiuu's inthicucc to
induce ins .Maine tricnds to cnilmrk in
the speculation. That Fhdicr, Mulligan
ana A twin, all had r.i the time at least an
impression, and a Mrong one, that the
$'.4,0j0 which Colonel Scott received
Irom the Union i'aciiic company went In
to Blaine's bauds ; hardly deniable, and
that Blaine was silts; when told that this
was the case Is t stablhhed by the testi
mony of both Fibher aud Mulligan. As
yet, however, there Is nothing to thow
tltat the Scott bonds were Blaine's. The
most mysterious part of the w hole ollair
the fifteen letters from Blaine to Fisher
remains almost as mysterious as at
first. The facts are established beyond
all possibility of doubt that Blaine, sent
lor t isher to know exactly w hat was in
these letters: and he anxious nunnrentrv
beyond the bounds ot ordinary reason to
0cs hiiiiaelt of t hem ; that he did
posses himself of them in at least a
questionable way ; that lie has had sola
powesnion of tlitin lor some days, and
refuses to give them up nt tin' request ol
the cnmmM'ce. Then, on the top
of all this he Rcrl that tlieie

to the chairman of the ci'iumittee pri
vately, ami. linally, his ow n singular side
trmaik to-day, that within ten days he
will read them to over two hundred peo
ple, meaning posibly the house. The
only lisrht in regard toany ol them comes
from the testimony ol ImiIIi Mulligan mid
l isher. that one of them was in answer
to several written by Fisher, demanding
n settlement ami asserting that the sixty
four thousand dollar payment should be
taken Into account, tvid that in it. Blaine
said, in substance, that If l-'Micr thought

A t .inadiaii paper, not at all given to
inventing or cxagerat'mg its new s, tells a
Very strange ami sensational story about
a condemned murderer, Trotter, w ho is
said to have acknow ledged that he, and
not Patrick .lames VVhelati, was the niur-dm-rol
that cloqm nt orator, earnest pa
triot, and ino.-t charming companion.
Thomas D'Arcy M' ticc. Mctiee, then
a member ol the government in Ottawa,
was shot, it will be rcim nils-red, at
about 2 o'clock on the ni irning ol thcTth
of April, ls'is. lie had delivered one
of hi most brilliant speeches, and, leav
ing the anadian house of commons, had
w alked to his lodgings, a couple of hun
dred yard away. As he stooncdlo put
his night-key in the lo k some one. sud
denly coining up In-hind him, placed a
pistol close to his head and blew out his
irams. vtjiclau was arrested on .suspi
cion, and, tiiougu at nr-t me case again.-i
him seemed very slight, lie was liually
convicted, mainly on circumstantial evi
dence, and hanged. Tiotter was a page
in tlie house ol "comnious at the time and
the son of the woman with
whom Mel ice boarded, lie was the lirst
person to discover the body of the
murdered statesman, and was a compan
ion ot Whclan the murderer.' The evi-
lence at the trial showed very clearly
that Meiji-e believed himself to be fol
lowed and walked with unusual ha-te to
the door, w here he was delayed trv ing to
open it. the key within, having contrary
to cu.-toin, been leit in the lock. Whe-
lan s friends always maintained his inno
cence, and his own assertion, never till
now made public, was that he had nJ
done the shooting, but knew who had;
and again, that he "was there, but did
not kill him." It has always been held
by the detectives that there were three
persons concerned in tlie eriuie, vv nciaii,
his unknown companion, and a third
person of much higher social position.
The late Judge O'Beiilcy, of Kings
ton, whose masterly conduct of the
case tor the Crown secured Whelau's
conviction lo the surprise of every one.
held the same theory, and even had some
thought ot pressing he charge nainst
some one whom he suspected of being
the third person in question. The de
velopment of the evidence against Whc
lan was startlngly dramatic, and the sus
picion that there were accomplices with
on behind him who had never lx-cn
reached, has always been so strong that
those acquainted with the case are quite
prepared to accept Trotter's story as m
part true. An attempt will be made to
secure bis conles-lon. or deposition, and
il it is suecessul,the liirht may ut least be
east on a cri no happily very rare in
American history, the most foul murder,
for political reasons, of ;: man of great
gifts and of amiable character, of w hom
it may most truly be said, "hi life was

The widow ol A. T. Stewart has sulli
cicntly recovered from theellects of her
husband's death to attend to some of the
details ol business imposed upon her in
her new condition, slie i not at nil dis

Hilton. She ha a mind ol her own, and
is not chary iu expressing it concerning
her own nllairs to those with whom she
comes into contacts Mr. Stewart has
decided to abandon the marble mansion
built by her husband as a residence, nnd
remove to the old homestead on the op
posite side ot Filth avenue. In this she
wa a sensible w oman. Had her own
vvi-hes been consulted, she would have
preferred a far dim-rent residence prior to
Sir. Stewart's death. The palace, even

elu-etless building, anil tlio-e who have
enjoyed the privilege of visiting the par
