WHAT HOHKN rtAVS.
(St. Louie Kvpuhllian Special.)
Wakihm.ton, June 10. Butler thn-w a
hrick to-day. the net causing h sensation.
It was in the shape of evidence that Mr.
Hayes was a party to the arrangement ly
which Southern men refrained from joining
the filliliustercrH. The conimittcp frittered
wv thf ttmt nntil nnrlv three o'clock.
when Butler ciimi! into the room, puninjr
from his efforts ot makiny; a sH'icli in the
lioiiac. lie called to the stand the man
ager of the Atlantic hikI Pacific Telegraph
company in Wiisliin;ton i.nd ipiotioneil
Ii i tit rouohly nliout the oriv'inals of certain
di-patches. Everyhody in the committee
r.Hitn saw immediately that Ben was tip to
some mystery. He was unusually witty
and vivacious and full of dark hints of
what was in store for the pulilic. lie drew
from hi pocket some m'ainisciipt anil
shoved it at the telegraph man. The latter
identified the nthYe inark of its receipt,
nuinlxT of words, etc. The curiosity of the
ineinliers of the committee was as ;reat as
that of the outsider. The committee de
cided that the authenticity of the dispatch
es had lieetl well enollirh otalilished with
out the telegraph tolks presenting their
luniks. Ben's idea in examining the wit
ness was to show that some one hud en
deavored to destroy the
THACF.S OK TIIK TKI.KllllAMs.
Tlic dispatches were read By Butler to
those present. The first was the long one
from Baker as secretary of certain Southern
men whose names were not given, suggest
ing persons for cabinet orrices and the
Southern policy. It was dated Fchruary
24, 1T7, tileint the time the electoral com.
mission was concluding its work, and ad
dressed to I.ieiit.-Oov. Young and A. 1).
I,cc, private secretary to Uov. llayes. The
other was Young's answer that it would le
laid Before Hayes. Cov wanted to know
what that had lo do with the investigation ',
Butler Uftowed a fiendish smile on him,
and said that lie would hring in the con
nection, vouchsaving that much of a con
nntion as to assert that the oliev suggest
ed was carrieil out, and that Key, one of
nier named for a cahinet position, was m.
i lecti'd, and that Baker immediately secured
an appointment in the tostorlicc depart
ment. Bed, the Blaine man from .Maine,
looked pleased, the Democrat amused, anil
Cm nonplussed, Butler culled for the
nun from the post-otllcc department, and a
clerk from that department Hlepped forw ard.
From him Ben wanted to know hIniui
Baker's appointment, But Im whs not the
ri,dit man. Then Butler and Co had a
wrangle as to the propriety of minimoning
clerk instead of the head of the depart
n etit. As another eulHpna would have, to
U1 limned and it was late ami the commit
tee adjourned until to-morrow, There is
WHIT II KN HAH IN I'HtmrKCT,
Hut on thing i certain, which I that Baker
never spoke for anyone of consequence la
cnn(res when he sent tint dispatch. If In;
tld (M-ople alaitit Washington will Be great
It lurprised us he ha Been known alxmt
TrVu-diington for years a one of the loafers
vho Infect tht; hotel and take drink with
tnvone who u.k them to do no, But it i
Ii id that Butler would not base mi much on
tie evidence of to-day llllles there wm
iiicthing hack of it. Moreover, it is
kmwn that Conk ling i In with Butler in
tl,i initter liMiight out to-day. Hevurul
inmth ago it was stated In these dispatches
tint Conkllng had secured voss.-Mion of a
ditpatch at Mit By thin aaino Baker to Hayes
h Columbus, and had Imcii having inter
vl'wa with Bak r. Butler informed Fos
tir, of Ohio, that Conklliig wanted t know
If Im (Foster) did not know of tlia dis
pitches when t nt -which wa not the
l'.(cl. Jttdg" Key iy to-ilglit that he
knew nothing of the disjiatch w hen Baker
was apiKuntcil. (ov. loiing, who is in the
city, says he delivered the dispatch to either
N eon, Hayes, orl.ee. the impression to
night is that Butler is on the trail of the
Wormly hotel conferences, mid only his
nooTiNo oi:t ohkat skcukts
gives the day's transactions any impor
tance. The connecting links in the story
of the forged returns from Louisiana and
their sulise(tteiit use Before the commission
are coming to the surface. Garfield has
already Been shown to have had knowledge
of the character of the returns some months
ago, and an examination of the proceedings
la-fore tlic electoral commission, of which
he was it mcmlicr shows questions aked By
him indicating his know ledge of the fraud
at that time. The record of the proceed
ings also shows that Morton, who was un
doubtedly at the Bottom of the whole affair,
offered ti resolution that the Kellogg certifi
cate known as No. L w hich was the one ir
regular in form But genuinely signed,
should Be counted, leaving the inference
that he was aware of the character of ttie
The Tildeii people an' making a deter
mined effort to get the Kiliimel Bill out of
the hands of the judiciary committee. The
action of the committee in delaying the re
vort on the Maryland resolutions and the
Kiminel Bill is somewhat significant. Two
weeks ago a majority of the uu-nibers were
ready to make
AN ADVKltSK ItKltOtT
And supplement it with the declaration
that the president's title is irrefragiBle. To
day a meeting to consider the report was
held. But the subject was again ostponcd
until to-morrow. A member of the com
mittee said that (ien. Butler favored delay,
and that he had said that tlx; result of the
present investigation might Be the presen
tattvn of articles of impeachment against
the president, and in y'.ewof such aposibil
ity it was Better that no consideration Be
made affecting the president's title until
the investigation shall have Been completed.
Manton MurBle has amed here, to impress
the Democrat with the idea that the count
was not regular; that the vote was not
counted By the two'hotises; that the result
should Be overthrown. There is no dis
guising the fact that there has Been nt
least a modification of the general sen
timent and feeling among the Democrats
on this question.
TIIK MAtTIJF.W lSVKSTH'.ATION.
In the st-nHte to-day the Democrat on
the Matthews committee asked and obtain
ed leave to Be excused, and Edmunds was to
do the same. Latter ill the day, when it
wti discovered that the whole senate
would ask the same thing, the action ex
cusing three meniBers w as rescinded, and a
resolution passed requiring all to serve.
WHAT IIAKKH SAYS.
Baker to-night says there was a meeting
of southern men at the time reterred to he
his dispatch, and that Poole and Hancock
were present. He says that he received it
answer read to-day Hud another sent lutter
By Young. The latter dispatch, it is tin
i-imooi, involves th.-. (nrsioent, then ttov.
Hayes uslx-ing heartily in accord with the
views expressed Bv Baker, and is iu the
hands of .Mr. Butler. Baker further says
thai he was asked By Mr. ( (inkling about
the matter, and that when it was explained
to him, Conkling admitted there was noth
ing in it.
TKL1.S HOW THK ELECTION' BE
TU.XS WERE MANIITLATKI)
Ami How Kadi Man was Ke warded ltli
Jac ksonvii.k, Fid., June 10 Investigat
ing committee resumed work this morning
and will close its laBors to-night, leaving
for Washington to-morrow. The testimony
of McLin witscontiniied. The witness de
tailed his appointment as nssocite justice
of the supreme court of New Mexico, the
office for w hich his letter to Gov. Novcs,
put in evidence on Saturday, had
Been written. Previous to his ap
pointment he had Been informed
at the instance of the preddeiit, By Cowgill,
of the returning Board, that he would Be
appointed. His rejection By the senate he
attributed to the personal ill-will of Senator
Couover, and his subsequent failure to get
the vacant justiceship in New Mexico,
promised him By the president, was due to
the liike-warmir-'ss of Conover. The presi
dent would have made the apMintmciit if
Conover had have been in earnest, the pres
ident having told Cogwill that he was un
der Mil political and personal obligation
to Cogwill. Cogwill was appointed to tin
agency in the treasury But declined to take
it, und was then promised an auditorship
in the treasury. Among prominent actors
in the Floridu'clection of 187, the follow
ing had Been provided for
a stated: Governor Steurns was ap
pointed on the Hot Spring commission;
J. W. Howell, who got upDrigger' returns
In Buker county, is uow collector of cn
toms at Fernandinu, Florida; Joseph Bowes,
election inspector charged with manipu
lating ballots in Leon county, is in the
treasury department at Washington; Wm.
H. Vance, clerk at the Archer precinct No.
2, hHM a federal position at Washington; R.
H. Black, inspector at tho same prccint.has
a federal clerkship iu Philadelphia; Bell,
Inspector in Jefferson county, had received
a federal appointment, But whs since re
moved; Geo. II. Leon, inspector in u-on
county, 1 clerk in the treasury at Washing
ton ; Dennia of Alachua county had nrent
ly a position In the treasury; Moses J. Tay
lor, one of the returning lard of Jefferson,
f In the land office at Wushington.
Pending the close of the lalxirs ot tho
atari' canvaring Ix.ard. Gov. Steam said
to the witness that he thought it of some
importance that the first reading before tho
bourd of the face of the returns ahould
ahow that Hayes was elected. Steam
read the returns as they wen' receive! by
him, ami said the reaiilt would Bo very
close. Drigger'a returns from Baker lieing
the moat favorable of any of the returns
J'rom Hakor county. 8trarn desired the
witnem to rend that to thu lajird in pref
erence to others, us it was really the only
properly made return. When the visiting
statesmen were tit Tallahassee witness was
told By W. E. Chandler, Gen. Lew Wallace,
probably Gov. Steams and others that Noycx
represented Hayes. Noyes asstircd'witiies
that Louisiana would Be all right for
the Hcimblicans and talked of everything
hanging on Florida going for Hayes.
Noyes nine direct from Louisiana tt few
days before the state canvass was made.
He told w itness Hayes and he were Ixisori
friends nnd he had come nt tht; special re
quest of Hayes. Witness did not remem
ber that Noyes djrectly made promite of
anything further than that members of th--canvassing
Board would lie provided fur.
This was Both Before and after the canvas.
From all he heard and all that took place,
witness looked upon Noyes as the special
representative of Hayes, expressing
hi views with regard to everything,
and felt satisfied that if the State went for
Hayes, leading UcpuBlienn of the cam
paign would be provided for. (ien. Lew.
Wallace was very active in getting testi-
tiuuij,' lut'irf the liiuml ,Mtt'iui4 tit .uwnw
and evidence in contested precinct and
counties. He said he had Been telegraphed
to By Hayes, requesting him to come to
Florida, and said Before and after the can
vass he was satisfied that Haves, if hi; lie-
taiiie president, would take pleasure in pro
viding for the Republican. of Florida. Wit
ness said his party feeling had more to do
with his course in the board than uuy other
cause, and he did not know that he was di
rectly uirliKuced By the promises of omVo
though these were not without weight; h
telt assured that so tarns pecuniary profit
went he could gain as much by casting hix
vote one way as another. Witnens said
thut he had come to the conclusion that the
board had followed the instructions of the
supreme cotirt of the state, and had count
ed precinct which were thrown out By
them, and lad thrown out the counties of
Alachua, Leon and Jefferson, in which
fraud had evidently lx-en committed. The
State certaii.lv went for Tilden. In Jeffer
son ample evidence ha. shown that one
hundred R-publican votes were surrepti
tiously counted, nnd in Alachua that.. tw.
hundred and nineteen Republican vote had
I ieen added to the poll list after the elec
tion. Theie facts bad come to.
his know edge since the canvass.
Witness was told in January,
1877, by Howell, then deputy collector of'
internal revenue, and recently appointed
collector atFcrnandina, that be had got ui
the Driggen return throwing out Johnson -ville
and Darby vt lie precincts and making
Baker county Republican instead of Demo
cratic. Hcwell was a candidate for stan
senator at the election of 1870. Witness
was also tild in February last by L. G.
Dennis of Alachua county that Black, in -spector.
and" Vance, clerk of Archer precinct
No. 2, aftet the election brought the re
turns up to Gainsville and there added to
them 21!) Republican votes. Dennis told
this to witness iu Washington tmd e.v
pressed a desire to make anexposureof whai
lie knew of frauds in the presidential elec
tion. .Tnneph Howes, Inspector at Kid) -nrdsou,
foii county, said to wit
ness about January I, 1877, that he would
have to leave the state for having stuffed a
ballot Imix at Richardson, Leon county,
where fraudulent tickets known as "litHe
jokers," numbering 74, were fraudulently
put in the Imix. Bowes said Ht the timo
they were going to go for hint and he had
to leave the country right awav. lb' and
others of the party mentioned now hold,
federal positions in or near Washington.
Witness was shown by Bowes one of the
"little jokers" tickets prior to the election,
and was informed by Bowes that the Use
intended to be made of them was to fold
one in each ticket of ordinaiy size, so that,
the voter would vote two instead of one.
Witness -remonstrated against it and
thought at the time that the plan had lx-en
given up. One Bell, county judge of Jef
ferson county, had disclosed to w itness in
Washington, last winter, the manner lit
which 100 Republican ballots were stiBsri
tilted for 100 others tit the precinct which
Bell served as inspector at the presidential
election. The inference which witness
drew was that the substitution made a.
change of hundred votes in the result.
Witness further testified that the entitv
election machinery of the state in 187H w.-w
in the hands of appointees of Gov. Stearns.
wm. AiiniK.n nx'KK,
Who was attorney-general of Florida and
one of the three members of the returning
board in 1870, testified that upon two oc
casions at the hour apx!nteil for the meet
ing of the lioard lie attended at the secreta
ry of state's office where the board met,
and he was obliged to wait an hour befurv
gaining admission; that when the door wm
unlocked from the inside Gen. Noyes and
Goy. Stearns passed out and inside hn
found Co wgi I and McLin, and other mem
bers of the Ixwrd.

I.. F. BOOTH,

testified that he saw none of the seventy
four little Joker tickets voted that day, and
the first ho knew of them waa by aeeiou
