Director Harrison, of Indianapolis,

that he was the depository of infor-
politically blow Mr. Blaine higher
than a kite, was examined, and his
explosion was found to consist
merely of hearsay. He knew abso
lutely nothing. Mr. E. H. Rollins,
the Secretary and Treasurer of the
Union Pacific, whom he gave as his
authority, was in alike situation he
knew of nothing to implicate Mr.
Blaine in the sale of these bonds, but
had, heard thus and so. Other wit
nesses were examined with the same
result Finally, Mr. Thomas A.
Scott, President of the Pennsylvania
railroad, and for one year President
of the Union Pacific, took the stand,
and be knew something. He testified
that in 1870 he had purchased these
seventy-five bonds, paying fbr them
$60,000. He had acted as President
of the Union Pacific for one year,
and during that time had rendered
the road what were believed to be
very valuable services. Being press
ed for money, it was suggested
that the Union Pacific Company, in
consideration of these services, should
buy these bonds at a certain price,
$64,000, which was done by the Ex
ecutive Committee. His year's sal
ary was never drawn, and this meth
od of remunerating him was taken
by the committee in preference to in
creasing his salary as President It
was a transaction between himself
and the Executive Committee repre
senting the Company, and Mr. Blaine
had no knowledge of the sale nor
any part in its benefits, directly or
indirectly, in any way or mt any
Thus is Mr. Blaine again vindicat
ed from the malicious charges which
his political enemies have brought up
against him. Not only do the oppos
ing witnesses testify that they have
no personal knowledge of facts im
plicating him, but another witness
testifies in the most direct manner,
that the bonds were purchased by
himself and sold by himself. for the
benefit of no one but himself—or at
least for no benefit to Mr. Blaine. Is
it not now about time to drop this
kind of political warfare and treat
an opponent with a fair degree of re
spect and decency
ANOTHER INVESTIGATION WITH THK
Information was recently given to
a Congressional committee that a lot
of whisky had mysteriously disap
peared from the Nsw Orleans custom
house. This fired.the entire Demo
cratic heart with indignation for if
there is anything that the average
Democratic Congressman feels to be a
personal affront and an unpardonable
offense it is that whisky should dis
appear without his having had some
thingtodo with concealing it So the
committee set to work to investigate
the matter. Col. Price, of Kentucky,
the complainant, testified that he had
lost several thousand dollars worth of
whisky shipped to the New Orleans
custom house and left in bond there.
(The committee noted this as import
