Sometime since, a illainous looking trump
called at the house of Bernard I'rvor, eight
miles from the city on the Benton road. It

The lady insUucted the servant to give him
something l'roin the cuplKiurd. A plate full
of food was handed to him, but lie said,
with a serowl, "That wont do. I m,l break
fast of that k!nd thin morning. I want a

impiKlent intruder, "There 'is no one to

soke savagely, but the brave woman wus
equal to the emergency. She stepped a
few feet to an adjoin'ng room, caught up
a well loaded double-barrelled shot gun,
cocked it and placing it to her shoulder, re'

'drew a bend on him," "If you don't leave

A. The fitst th'n;r tliat I recoi'ect is hnt
I stated to Ma I'lews (hat it had come

ments or p.' kts, or whatever they wi-re.
were exuiei ce n the newspaix-r othee ot
tlie ew 1 ork !si and that copies of them
or the off." lals had been offered to some
parties in New York rcpresent:ng Tllden.
Q. Do you have any recollec ion of v

jicib 11c luio. jieo l c inai ne naa tne same
information from some Democratic source
and his statement wes to the efiect hat he
did not care whether the doevtnent. so far
as he was concerned, was delivered to other
parlies, or purchased, or Isjuglit or what
was done with it. We then disci d what
is called the Sherman !e.,er and I told him
what I had heard in regard to its e !stjnce.
and I remember distinctly he remarked
that lie did not believe anv such letter had
ever leen written and hat no orig'nal was
in existence. During the inteiview it w-
mentioned that Anderson
or )aities repre-
Who mentioned it? A. It w.s men
tioned by himse'f and he had heard the
same that parJes representing Anderson
would cVsnose of those documents, and I
told him tliat Anderson had been over here
at a request of mine and I inuuire d in re-
gard to papers and documents and thai he
had assured me they were in his jniMession
amt would remain satelv there. Matthews
rciuarhcu mat in case 01 my appointment
or appointment of some one suitable to us.
Antlers-Hi should be williu to give up all
documents and papeis that lie had, ami
forego any claims that he had on him
(Matthewsj or the Admii;stration.
Q. You have spoken of papers g-.-n-.era'ly,
you have even told us three times
over that Matthews introduced the Sher
Dian le.ter, by saying that he did not care
aliout the papers so far as he was concern
ed, except us to the Sherman letter. Did
not Matthews introduce the subject of the
Sherman letter fit str A. 1 can't recollect
who tirst sjMike of the Sherman letter.
Q. Do you recollect of its coming in any
other way than the way you put it in vot'r
direct examination? A. I do not.
Q. What he in substance said was that
he did not care about anything else, but it
was the Sherman letter that was of imiior
tance. Why didn't you say "Mr. Matthews,
what is the Sherman letteri'' Didn't you
say that to him? A. There was nothing
of that kind said. The Sherman letter at
that time had In-en published 'n thepapers.
and it is to e supposed everybody knew
what it was.
Q. Pardon me; if you tell me what is
in the newspajK-rs, you tell me a great
many things that aren't true. While you art
testifying under oath, therefore, don't do it.
Laughter. Just speak of what you know.
Did he refer to the newspapers as his
source of information? A. Neither of us
referred to the newspapers.
Q. Now, what source of infoimation
did you give to him about the Sherman let
ter in that conversation? A. -My source
of information was Mr. Potter, chairman of
this committee, ami what I heard of it
Q. But what information did you give
him alwut the Sherman letter as distinctive?
A. I can recollect nothing as distinctive.
Q. What information did you give about
the Sherman letter? A. None what
ever. Q,. Then Sherman's letter was spoken of
as a matter that you two knew all about?
A. Certainly it was a well-known thing.
Q. It was after the 5th of April and
before the 19th of that month you saw the
papers Anderson had ? A. Yes, sir.
Q. On the 19th you had learned that
your candidature was up, in old Saxon,
"your cake was dough,'' and the papers
were not any longer instrumental in help
ing you, why did you want them on the
19th of April? A. I cannot give you
any information us to that. I cuc't explain
Q. Let me sec if I can help you. You
had just been beaten; were you "not just as
well satisfied then to have 'the papers es
tablished? A. Oh.no sir; 1 had no such
idea as that, not at that time.
Q. Afterwards you told him he hud
better pitch in? A. There is but one (.x.
plnnation 1 can give as to that telegraph,
foi I am certain I saw the documents pre
ious to the 19th of April. About the
time thu appointment whs made, and a few
days before I went home Packard notified
me he had telegraphed to Anderson to
conic over, and had signed my name to the
telegram, And ei'son having 11 better ac
quaintance with me than with Packard,
though be was well acquainted w ith both
of us. That may explain matters.
t. But Packard was beaten before you
began ami you wanted to antagonize hiin.
1 011 were Oeateii, ami J'.ickard too. bv the
19th of April. How do you explain' that
Packard wanted the papers? They wcie no
longer reasons for li is appointment. A.--1
have given the best recollection 1 huve.
ov, then when you saw the paper
they dii'-i't seem In you to be ol'unv conse
quence? A. Well 1 would consider the t
ter of Matthews and Sherman if the origi
nals could lie produced us important docu
ments, Q. When Anderson showed you the
papers where were you? A --It was in my
ow n room. f
ti. Who were present? A. The only
gentlemen present were L. (j. Smith, the
present collector of New Orleans, Ander
son and myself. Mr.Smilh saw a portion
of the papers possibly all of them. I i x
aiuiued them and he did. The only thing

Q Was the inside of this pajx-r com
municated to you or did the parties just
present this pait of it and sav thev had
sworn to it ? A. That is all, I just saw the
inside. I was not made aequaintil with
the contents of it; the gentleman seemed to
be very reticent about communicating the
contents and I put the question tr them,
whether there was anything in it that
would be unprofessional for me to sign,
anything tliat would appear ridiculous or
non-professional, and Anderson said no.
The document was signed whn it was
brought to me and I said to Wilder "It's
all right." He came and introduced An
derson to me. ,

t Do you remeniU-r of your attention
being called to tliat or noticing it at the
time? A. I am almost posi ivei that I
called . Anderson's attention to that fact,
and the fact that Weber's name was not on
that document or at least his name vas not
inserted, and I had the correction made:
when it was first presented to me it was
simply sworn to before me this 15th jay of
November. 17(1, by the k-fore-menfoned
James E. Anderson; I said there ar two
gentlemen to this, and the other name must
lie inserted. j

don't know who inserted it, but somlody
did, and it is not ;n my handw iting.,
Q. Do you notice 'the fact that your
own signature is signed on the l' v; imme
diately below Anderson's and pa.tly be
