The Frenclt representatives in the con

ECHOES FROM THE DOME.
POTTKR'8 EXPERTS OUTWITTED MY MRS,
JESKS- HITLER ' ACCUSED OF PLAYINo
THE PART OF X HOWDY.
TESTIMONY OF MRS. JKNKS.
Washington, June 24. The Potter In
vestigation committee resumed its session
to-day, Potter presiding.
Mrs. Jenks, on entering the room made a
very dignified bow to the members of the
committee and took a seat in the witness
stand. Mr. Springer commenced the cross
examination by referring to the statement
of the witness Saturday that no one except
herself knew aught of the original
document known us the . Sherman
Q If no one excepting yourself knew
aught of the original dix-ument, you must
have written it. A. I did not say so.
Q Were you the author of the contents
of that letter I A. I dictated the contents
of the letter.
Q. Then the person to whom you dic
tated tlm content of the letter merely act
ed as an amanuensis? A. Yes, sir; aman
Q Who was the person to whom you
dictated the letter? A. I refuse tell you,
Q. Do you know the names of any
of the persons who were in the parlor at
the time the letter was written? A. I
may know the names of some of them.
(J. What names do you remember? A.
I will not tell you.
The witness; in reply to interrogations,
said the letter was written, as near as she
can recollect, upon one page of an ordinary
sheet of letter paper. She used a medium
sized envelope, with no printing on it.
Q. In whose handwriting was the so
called Sherman letter? You asked me that
before and I told you I would not answer
y i .. ...
. i asK you again, is that letter in
your handwriting? A. And I again re
fuse to answer whether it was in my hand
writing or not. You must draw your own
inferences in that case. The witness then
stated that she alone now knew anything of
tne original letter; aiming: "l'erhaps some
one has died since."
Jlr. Springer Mr. Weber has died
The witness Yes, sir. It is a great
Continuinir, the witness said the letter
was addressed on its face to Daniel Weber
and James E. Anderson.
Mr. Springer requested the witness, Jiand
intr his pen and a sheet of Dnner. to write
a copy front her memory, aa near as possi-
me. in me cmiu-msui mu original uocument,
but she declined to write a copy, stating
that if they desired to see her handwriting
they had a numljcr of letters written by
her, to which they might refer.
Being interrogated regarding the' letter
handed her by Welier, and her movements
after entering the hotel, tha witness testi
fied she inquired of the usher if Mr. Sher
man was in. The usher said tie liclieved
the gentleman was upstairs, huI offered to
present her card, but she. did not desire to
do so. So she unconsciously read the let
ter, ami after reading it, considered it an
insult to Sherman and his CrioniU ami nrwn
these grounds she thought it proper not to
deliver the letter.
Q. But, madame. you thought nroner.
to open the letter written and addressed
to Sherman? A. I did not sav I oncnod
the letter, and will not permit you to state
ContinuinL'. the witness said she fro.
qucntly visited Gov. Kellogg at his office
during the time the visiting statesmen were
there, and she had seen (fen. Phil. Slim'.
dan, Messrs. Sherman, Stoughton, Garfield
ami others in the governors ofhee during
her visits there. She did not recall dis
tinctly who else she saw. without refrcsliimr
her memory with her memorandum.

The witness musiiiL'lv You are very
Rcviewin the testimony the witness said
she was on intimate terms with Anderson
Mr. Springer then desired to know what
her object was in deceiving her friends in
order to don favor for Shu: man, whom she
did not know.
She replied at first that she did it to pre
serve the honor of the party, and afterward
that her idea was to prevent the two gentle
men from going over to the Democratic
party, desiring them to stand firmly by the
Republican party until the returns" we're in,
and that she was a self-iipointed agent of
Mr. Springer again attempted to gut the
witness to stute in whose hand writing the
Sherman letter was, but she declined most
emphatically to do so.
Gen. Butler inquired of the witness if she
had any more of the Anderson letters and
she replied : I may have some more, ad
ding: By the way. general, how did ymi
get the letters from Mrs. Weber? (Laughter.
Mr. Butler, leaning' carelessly buck in
ischair. seemingly enjoyed the question as
much as the spectators, but gave no re
ply. In the dialogue between Mrs. Jenks and
Oen. Butler, the witness told Butler he was
very flowery, and ottered to tell him more
ul mu t her Anderson letters, if hit would
give her the inl'ormation she required re
garding the cotir!' pursued by him to ob
tain Mrs. Weber's left T. Otherwise she
should be compelled to refuse the same as
Mr. Springer again took the w itness, ask
ing her aUnit how long it was from the
time she left until she returned with the
document. Shu thought it was in the nciu'h
liorhooilof three-quarters of an hour. She
remained in the reception purlor but about
five minutes, during which time she uncon
sciously bit the end I'ruiiithe note addressed
to Sherman, entrusted to her fordelivi rv.
Mr. McMuhon referred to the correspon.
dence which had existed between the wit
ness and Gov, Kellogg und particularly de
sired to know w hat letter she referred to in
NEW SERIES NO 48-
her letter dated Novemlwr 14, 1877, in
which she said: "Yes; I refer to the letter
you wroto of; you will perceive by one of
Anderson's letters, which I enclose, that ht)
values it very highly, and also that ho is
not in possession of the document, and you
may lie sure he shall never get it or other
papers he deemed of value.
During the questioning of McMahon
with a view of having the witness state that
the letter referred to was the Sherman let
ter, tlni witness evaded the direct questions
and made various inquiries of McMahon.

TESTIMONY OF OEN. BOYNTON.
The committee reassembled at 2:15 n. Mi
ami Gen. 11. V. Bovnton. tlie WiLshinotMn
correspondent of the Cincinnati Gazette,
was sworn and examined by Mr. McMahon.
ne staieii mat lie called on tue president
about the time Andeson received his an-
iHiintment. He did not call in rerrard to
the matter, but in the course of a conversa
tion with tho president this matter came
up. It had been stated in a DennxTiitic
paper that Anderson had disreputably
managed some parishes and had been ap
Minted for that reason. Gen. Boynton
stated that he asked the president why this
man had been appointed, and the presi
dent replied that Anderson had rendered
valuable service to the party and run great
risks. (Sen. Bovnton called the mvsiilwnr'4
attention to the newspaper article and tho
president : replied: i do not tlunk he will
remain in oflice. Gen. Boynton a-ked
whether Anderson's commission hud been
made out. The president undo substan
tially the same reply. This interview with
the president took place aUmt the 1st of
June. The whole conversation on this
Hint lasted only alxuit two or three min
ute. The interview lusted from five to
eight hours. He had gone to the presi
dent tqion the hitter's invitation and was
out riding w ith him.
In response to Gen. Butler, Gen. Bovnton
said he may have told the story to some
Isaly, and thinks he yave the purport then
us tostified'to-iluy. lie never said to any
lsidy that the president's reply was that
the reason why Anderson received that
appointment was because he was possessed
of political si-crets.
(J Will you say whether you have given
anyone to understand, or whether the presi
dent gave you you to understand that An
derson was MKsessed of some political knowl-eilg.-
w hich it was Ust should not lie made
public f A.- I think I have stated t) one or
two persons in my oflice that the president
left me under the impression that tho ap
pointment was inudif for some such reason
as that. That impression arose from the
president Liiluro to deny the statement
'iltltllllled 111 t 10 lloustmiior iniri,rruili ...
which I culled Ids attention.
(J. I low soon alter your interview with
the president was it that you gave this in
foi'iiiatiuii to persons? A. Can not recol
lect. If. How did ymi deduce from the piesi
cut's reply that this man had rendered
good Republican service in Louisiana that
Ma best not to be made known? A. The
fact that the president had Rot denied the
st it "iiiortt contained in the newspaper para
graph led me to deduce that inference.
(J. Then this was like the first chapter
in John: ll did not deny but he confessed.'
A. But h did not confess; so that in that
respect if ditl'is from John.
(Hi. Butler culled the witness' atten
tion to the fact Unit Anderson had declined
the Fuiu'hal cimsu'ship prior to the presi
dent's revoking the api-ointment, whereupon
an animated dssciission arose among the
iiiciiiUt of the commit t 'ens to the proprie
ty of pursuing this course of examination,
