Gen. Bovnton said he had no conversation
other than that pertaining to regulate news

Mr. Butler Was there anything said re
garding Gen. Harlan's candidacy for the
supreme bench; A. -ics sir. u.'tore
leaving for New-Orleans', Gen. Harlan le
qucstcd me to ascertain if I could, as a
favor to him, whether BiUtow was a candi
date. If so, Harlan did not desire to
stand in his way. llnrltm was of the
opinion that if ho went to New Orleans he
could aid in bringing about a satisfactory
settlement of the very annoying state of
nfl'airs then existing, and h thought prob
ably that transaction would help him in
securing a seat upon the supreme bench.
That is all that happened in this connection
with regard to that matter, excepting that
I promised to endeavor to comply with
Harlan's request. The conversation after
Gen. Harlan's return from New Orleans
was 'n the ollice of Gen. Boynton, who in
formed llarlna that he had beeu absolutely
unable to llnd out ilellnitelv either from
Brislow or liis iiitimale fiieinls, but that it

or $10,000 has been used in Louisiana for

Gen. Butler desired to know who his

was sworn, and testified that ho had con
versed with James E. Anderson on the sub
ject of the protest of the parish of East
Feliciana, and desired tho reading of a pre
pared statement in regard to the matter.
After a discussion, it was decided to per
tnjt the reading of tho statement os a part
of his sworn testimony, which was to tho
effect that Anderson swore to the Crist pro
test in his (Pitkin's) presence. The second
protest mentioned by Anderson never ex
isted, to the..knjwlcdfo of ,th witness, and
the third protrsrwas handed to Pitkin by
Anderson, duly sworn to, and to the Lest of
his recollectioii there were no blunks in the
document, as Anderson has sworn, and filled
by parties unknown to him. Pitkin thought
it very probable that the. third protest had
been framed by Anderson .while he was
under the influence of liquor. He (Pitkin)
in his statement challenged any one to state
that he ever attempted to persuade Ander
son to dp aught contrary to law. He thought
it very probable he had mentioned to Ander
son that if he could do so conscientiously it
wonlu lie well to make a protest, lie (Pit
kin) being personally aware that the con
dition of affairs in East Feliciana parish
were not altogether pacific. .
The statement is very voluminous and
refers also to tho conversation had with
Anderson in Williard's concerning various
conversations with that gentleman and
At the conclusion of the statement Gen.
Butler inquired of Pitkin whether ho at
any time asked Thomas Jenks about the
Sherman letter, to which the witness said
it was very likely ho had done bo. He
had never seen a copy of the Sherman let
ter. He had seen an article in a New Or
leans newspaper announcing that Mrs.
Jenks had a photographic copy of the Sher
man letter, and upon showing her the arti
clu she laughed and remarked in these
words: "How little -the newspapers
Mr. Pitkin then addressed some further
inquiry regarding the letter, and Mrs.
Jenks replied that the letter had never left
New Orleans. Whenever he mentioned it
at all ho mentioned it as the Sherman let
ter. He did not think Mrs. Jenks spoke of
it as the Sherman letter.

Q. Syplter was present at the interview
in question, was he not? A. Yes, sir.
Q. Didn't Sypher explain tho circum
stances connected with Anderson's protest?
A. Yes, sir; Sypher gave a history of the
case, much of which was new to Senator
Conkling as well as to myself.
Q. When Senator Conkling asked you
about tho blanks in protest, what did you
reply? A. I think I replied in substance
the same as I have to-day in my prepared
statement; that I had no knowledge of the
existence of any blanks in the protest.
Q. Did Sypher have tho Matthews let

think not, but he gave a description of

At 3 o'clock Marshal Pitkin resumed the
stand, and was questioned by Gov. Cox with
reference to Levissee's story with regard to
this matter. He further staled that in June,
1S7, his resignation as United States mar
shal was requested by Attor
ney General Devens. He asked to
lie' furnished tho reasons for his request, and
declined to resign. Alwmt live weeks later
he received a lett-r from Gen. Butler in re
sponse to one written by himself, which he
gave to the public, and shortly arer that
his successor was appointed. He stated
that he appointed 870 deputy marshals in
the citv of New Orleans and about 2.51)0
throughout the state. Of tho H70 there were
only 25 Democrats. AUntt 350 had been re
commended to him tor apiMuntniciit by J.
W. Patton, chiarinan of the Democratic
state committee, but ho found upon inves
tigation, that they wero all white leaguers,
and hence he declined to npoiiit them.
He stated that be knew nothing of the loan
of $20,000 for the purpose of defraying the
expenses of getting up protests. The only
expenditures he knew of was about $3,000,
Zachnry Chandler sent in January after the
election, and which was uscd'i paying for
the sultsistence of metropolitan police.
In reply to Mr. Springer Mr. l'itkin
said that w'hen Anderson showed h'ni the
Matthews letters at Williard's hotel ho ad
vised Anderson to give the letters into
Gen. Butler's custody.
He was interrogated at some length as
to different matters connected wiih the
visiting statesmen and the returning board
count, but his evidence on these points was
very imperfect, mid not at all important.
He stated in reply to Mr. MeMahon that
in November Inst be looked among his pa
pers for the proof drawn up by Anderson
himself and sworn to before Commissioner
Wolfoly, and after finding it sent it to
Senator Cmikling. Undid this simply to
satisfy Senator Conkling that Anderson at
tho time of making tho protest was not
drunk, as had been intimated by Sypher in
the interview between Senator Conk'ing
nndthe witness. .
Mr. Pitkin identified tho handwriting of
NEW SEIMES-NO 49
D. A. Weber In a number of letters shown
him. The witness was then shown the
Weber-Andeison agreement, and said that
he should not believe the signature on
that to bo Weber's.
In reply to Gen. Butler tho witness stated
that immediately after his arrival here ho
called on Senator Conkling to get tho first
protect of Anderson's, which ho had sent
him. ' Ho went with tho senator to his com
ni'itee room where the senator and Ids pri
vate secretary looked for the paper. Sena
tor Conkling said that he remoiubcred per
fectly well that tho witness promised to send
that document, but that ho was not sure of
having received it The witness gavo tho
senator his address, and tho latter promised
to send it, but has not done zn yet.
Mr. Pitkin was then excused,
ALFRED G. HALEY
testifiinl that ho had a conversation with
Mrs. Jerks, when she was here last spring,
on tho subject of tho Sherman letter.
Objection was made by Mr. Hiseoek to,
tho testimony evidently to bo elicited from
the witness, for tho impeachment of Mrs.
Jenks' credibility, and a long argument
aroto npon this point. s
It was finally decided' to let the matter
