TESTIMONY OF MRS. JENKS. MR.
HALEY AND JUDGE CAMPBELL.

OPKD YESTERDAY DKPAKTMENT NOTES
AND EVENTS OK THE DAY AT WASHING
TON. Washington, June 2. Mrs. Jcnks was
before the Potter committee again to-day,
and said she may have letters from Senator
Kellogg not yet submitted to the commit
tee, but declined to produce them without
the consent of that gentleman, which
that gentleman gave through
Judge Shellaharger, the senator
adding that lie was desirous of having any
anil all correspondence K-twecn himself
and Mrs. Jenks laid lefore the committee.
Mrs. Jenks then said the letters were in
New Orleans, and she would produce them
soon as possible. The exx-cted package of
Anderson letters has not yet leen re
ceived. In reply to questions, the witness
said she dictated the Sherman let
ter to an other party, and wish the com
mittee to distinctly understand she herself
did not write it.
Q- Who was the jK-rson to whom you
dictated the letter? A. Mr. Chairman, I
must decline to tell that. It would not be
honorsh'c. It was a person prominent in
Louisiana local politics. I saw him prob
Hbly six months ago. He may le dead now
fur what I know. I was a kind of a Re
publican. The first draft of the letter was
toociaborate for the witness' taste, but the
second draft suited better. The witness
did not show cither draft to Weln-r, but left
him to infer that the letter was genuine.
She never mentioned the fact of a first draft
to any one until in this room.
Tbo witness asked McMahon, with the
air of haughtiness, if there were any more
lame, blind or halt expected as witness in
her case. If so he had better go out in tho
highway and bring them in.
Mr. MacMahon You know, Mrs. Jenks.

Mrs. Jenks was informed that two let
ters awaited her in the house post orlice.nnd
she was released to read them.
A. t). HAI RY
was recalled nnd testiged that lie had had
several conversations in January and Feb
niary last with Mrs. Jenks regarding the
Sherman lettei, and it t-umc. out in the con
versation that she was in Washington in be
half of Gov. Packard for collector, she had
approached Secretary Sherman alsiut the
matter; that she knew the whorcaliouts of
the Sherman letter, and had been offered
$2,01)0 for it. The witness advised her
that tlm letter was worth at least $3,000 to
Secretary Sherman, and she (the witness)
proposal that she make him her agent to
place the letter where it would do the most
good, Mrs. Jenks gave the witness to un
derstand that she would visit Louisiana
and bring the letter with her on her return.
She had read a letter to the witness during
their conversation, pursirting to be from
her husband, which referred to the Sherman
letter. The letter was very affectionate,
and contained much poetry, and lie seemed
fond of poetry. The reading was greatly
enjoyed by him.
Ueing cross examined by Mr. Cox, the
witness said his acquaintance with Mrs.
Jenks amounted to a great d-al more than
n mere Itoarding house acquaintance.
As near as she could remember the quo
tation referring to the Sherman letter read
purporting to be from her husband, was as
follows: You have committed a blunder in
permitting the documents to leave your own
Owing to tint ilMHtneHS of the witness,
Mr, Cox iiskcd if he did not experience
great ditllculty in hearing Mrs. Jcnks in the
conversation, and he replied: Oh, none in

I can always understand a lady Ivitcr than
a gcnlli'iiian. Laughlor.

Louisiana, lie stated tin reply to Gov.
Cox that some time in November of that
year the protest drawn up by Anderson was
shown him by Marshal Pitkin. He gave
his opinon that the document was informal
and furnished a blank protest, which he
had prepared for the use of supervisors of
elections. Shortly after ho was informed
that Anderson desired to swear to a protest,
and that his presence was requested in Mr.
Pitkin's office. The witness went to Mr.
Pitkin's office, when Anderson iiuule wmn

PLATKORMS A DOITED WEDNESDAY I1Y THE
DEMOCRATS OK OHIO AND THE REPl ltl.I
CANS OK ILLINOIS THE OHIO DEMOCRATIC
The Democratic party of Ohio in conven
tion assembed hereby reaffirms the follow
ing clauses in the platform of the conven
tion of July 25, 1877, indorsed bv a majori
ty of more than 22,000 last i'all by the
people of Ohio. We renew its pledges of
devotion to the Union and constitution,
with amendments. It declares as essential
to the preservation of free government a
faithful adherence to the following princi
ples: Strict construction of home rule,
supremacy of tin? civil over the military
power; separatii n of church and state;
equality of all citizens before the law; lib
erty of individual action, unvcxed by
sumptuary laws; absolute acquiescence in
the lawfully expressed will of the majority;
opposition to ail subsidies; preservation of
public lands for the use of actual setters,
ami maintenance and perfectiiiir of the
common school system, as pertinent of is
sues now pending before the jK-ople.
Resolved that the investigation of the
frauds committed at the last presidential
election in Florida and Louisiana ought to
have been made by the electoral commis
sion. Its refusal to do so was a violation
of the spirit of the law under which it was
organized, and a gross outrage upon Un
people of the United Slates, ami whilst the
decision, as made by. the Forty -fourth con
gress, of the question its to who should be
declared president of the United States for
the present presidential term was in our
judgment final, that decision ought not to
preclude the authentic investigation and
exiwwuro of all frauds connected with that
election, and the due accountability of all
who were guiltily connected with them.
Resolved that the commercial and indus
trial stagnation that has so long prevailed
throughout the country ami the consequent
widespread and suffering is due directly to
pernicious financial legislation of the Re
diibliean party, which we hereby arraign
for its acts, and character.
1st. That at the time when the country
was weighed down with debt, created on
the basis of u full volume of paper added
to both the precious metals as money, it
enacted a sweeping change in the measure
of value wholly in the interest of moneyed
capital by demoneli,iiigi.iIv"i-and decreeing
the destruction of legal-tender paper and
thereby wrongfully added in effect hun
dred of millions to the luti-ili-ii of debt and
taxes of the people..
2d. Hy pursuing its merciless pol
icy of contracting the paper currency and
hoarding gold it has increased continuously
the value of money and securities that
partake of the enhancement of money and
decreased the value of ull other property,
and especially of capital designed (br pro
ductive use and required for tho employ.

ment of labor, thus repressing instead of
fostering ihdustry, compelliug idleness In
stead of sustaining trade and commerce,
und now this party in Ohio puts forward in
its platform tho declaration, that tho finan
cial question has la-en settled. We deny
this declaration, and and while wo con
gratulate the country that the downward
course to bankruptcy and ruin involved in
the Republican policy has been partially
averted by the Democratic measures passed
at the lute session of congress restoring the
debt-paying power to silver dollars, luado a
law in spite of a presidentptl veto, and stop
ping the further destruction of greenbacks ;
we demand, as further acts of justice as
well as measures of relief, the absolute re
peal of the resumption act and lawful lib
eration of the coin hoarded in the treasury,
the removal of all restrictions to tho coin
age of silver and restablishment of silver
as a money metal tho same as gold tho
same as it wns ln.fi

notes and its permanent establish
ment aa the solo jmper money of
tho country are mailt receivable for all dues
to the government and of equal tender with
coin, the amount of such issue to ho so
regulated by legislation or organic law as
to give people assurance of stability
in the volume of' currency, nnd conse
quent stability of value; no further in
crease in the bonded debt and no further
sale of the bonds for purchase of coin for
resumption purposes, but the gradual ex
tinction of the public debt; rigid economy
and reduction of public expenditures in all
branches of the public service, and a tariff
for revenue purposes only.
Resolved, That the interests of the indus
