It also is the department's indention
to deprive the collectors at ports along
the Great Lakes and the Canadian
border of their present perquisites for
the sale of manifest Planks and to tu:n
this revenue into tho treasury. At
some of the emallcst ports where the
sale of the collector is only $2 500 fees
irom the sale of manifests are believed
by officials to raise the compensation
to a lame amount, even $15,000 or $20,000
in some instances. At New York and a;
all actual seaports the collector, years
ago. lust the returns from the sale of
manifests.
When formT President Chester A.
Arthur was collector at New York. he.
like others, was paid on a commission
and fee basis and his compensation is
said to have reached over $100,000 a
year. This situation drew the attention
of Congress and all "seaports" were

Washington, January 13.? Robert
W. Archbald. of Scranton, Pa., for
twentj-ninc > ear's an occupant of Ju?
dicial po Itlons upon the Pennsylvania
State bench, the Federal District
bench aad the United States Com?
merce Court, today wa.H adjudged
guilty by the United States Senate of
"high crimes and misdemeanors.** was
stripped of his office and forever dis?
qualified from holding positions of
public honor or public trust.
The conviction and judgment came
at tho conclusion of the Impeachment
trial that has been pending in the
Senate since last summer on charge*
that fudge Archbald had been guilty
of misconduct and misbehavior as a
judge and that he bad corruptly Used
his judicial power to further the pri
vate Interests of himself and bis
friends, in the acquisition of coal land
properties in Pennsylvania
Upon five of the thirteen separate
charges brought against, him by the
House of Representatives, Judge Arch
bald was found guilty. Upon the
I other eight the Senate voted him not
j guilty, the majority in some cases being
I against hire, but failing of tho two
: thirds necessary for conviction. Anr
i one of the five verdicts of guilty was
enough to bring about the punishment
imposed upon him.
End a Long Struggle.
The end of the long-fought struggle
in the Senate came early in the after?
noon, when the vote was taken on t.rjo
first article of impeachment. With
gallery doors locked to prevent tho
movement of spectators, ajjd an unac
I customed hush prevailing throughout
the chamber, sisty-cight Senators rose
I in their places as their names were
called and pronounced the word
guilty" in almost inaudible tones.
Tho vote on the first charge, that
[Judge Archbald had corruptly influ?
enced officials of the Knc Railroad to
sell him the Katydid culm dump at
Scranton. resulted in his conviction
by a voto of 88 to S. .Nineteen Senators
were absent or not voting.
In a little committee room off the
' gallery floor, behind a guarded door,
?fudge Archbald. his wife and his son.
Hugh, sat throughout the afternoon
as the Senate voted upon the charges
', against him. The news of the first,
vote of conviction was carried to htm
by his son from tbe gallery. After
sentence had been imposed upon him
Judge Archbald and his family left tho
Capitol, to go at once to the family
home at Scranton.
" I have always known tha* I have
done no wrong and the vote of no one
j makes It otherwise. was his only
comment upon the Senates action.
Baron Imposes Sentence.
Sentence was imposed by Senator
Bacon of Georgia, the presiding officer,
after tbe Senate had. by a rote of St
to IS. upheld a resolution offered by
Senator O Gorman, of New York.
I authorising the full penalty, provided
i by the Constitution.
?'The Senate, therefore, do order and
'decree.'' said Senator Bacon, and it
is hereby adjudged that the respondent

the United States tor Third Judicial
Circuit, and designated to serve in thei
Commerce Court, be and he is be-cby
removed from office and that be b*
and hereby is forever disqualified to
hold .ind enjoy anv officv of honor,
trust or profit under the United states."
The sentence of the S.im? became
operative at once, and direi tions were
given that the President and ?."? Hour**
of Representative* be notified of the
verdict and the, punishment imposed].
