Th.9 Production of Wells' Lettors to Wst
Special dispatch to Cincinnati Enquirer.
Washington, Fb. 3d. The House
committee was crowded this morning in
anticipation of the examination of Wells.
It was thought that Maddox would pro
duce the letter of Wells to Senator W est,
ho lonz uromised, and so much covete
by the committee. The Republicans had
Drettv broadly lutuuated to Maddox tha
if the letter existed he was holding il back
with the hope of driving a thrifty bargai
lor its nouproducnou,
When Dudley Field, who really does
all the heavy licks put in by toe commi
tee, put Maddox on the stand and asked
him whether he would produce the letter
lie said he would rather wait until Mon
day, Then the Republican committe
men looked at each other in a way as
to sav: "Wis told you so; it's all a myth
else lie's playing a double game." Field
told him he must produce it at once if he
had it. and Maddox, without a word more
drew from his pocket an envelope ad
lressed to himself, containing two letters
-one addressed by himself, and the other
f waled and scut to senator West, lb
iiepublicans became nervously sileut as
l ichl reached across the table and eager
ly took out the two epistles. N ells lace
reddened to the hue of a boiled lobster
all the more noticeable because of the
whiteness of bio hair and whiskers and
the habitual pallor of his counteuauce
The old sinner sank low in the great arm
chair in which he sat, close behind Law
rence, McDill and Burchard, and looked as
if he felt his time to be hung was at
band. H s partner, Anderson, sat upon
his right, and Wilson, his counsel, on the
left, while Marshal Pitkin paced the floor
While the committee were thinking of
sending for West to come and open his
letter before them, that virtuous states
man walked in. After promising to open
it in the presence of the Commission, aud
leave it with them, Mr. Field ventured to
band it to him. This was the trying mo
incut for Wells, who kuew the damaging
couteuts of the letter, and for his Den
Senator," who did not know with what
.Is to himself it wight be pregnant. As
aming an air of impudent bravado that
iiled to conceal bis great embarrass
uent, We6t broke the seal and read the
etter aloud. As he proceeded his voice
Tew thick, he halted for breath at the
' e 02 every eeutence, and when the
st words were uttered drew a long sigh
i relief, as one who climbed an acclivi'y.
- ianced at Wells, aud throwing the paper
j the table looked at the committeemen
s impudent as ever.
A smile, rather sickly on the Republi
.in side, spread around the table, l'roc-
u- Knott and Sparks especially seeming
'elighted with the discomnture ot their
pponi sts. Wells sat all the while ner
vously twisting his chinwhiskers around
his fove-fingcr, aud Dudley Field gave an
occasions! low grunt 01 satisfaction
West said he rccoguized the letter and
siguature in Wells, handwriting, and rec
ognized Wells all through the letter,
lie was cage - to go upou the stand at
ouce aud attack the character ot Maddox,
but Field said no; he might he called some
other time, if wauted. West then went
e round to shake bands heartily with
Wells, Anderson and I'itkin.
If the committee have a few more days
to collect te6timouy of which they know,
the doings of the Returning Board of the
