Washington, Feb. 10. At ten o'clock
to-day tho llouso special committee ap
pointed by the Speaker to Investigate the
charge made by the Ex-Speaker Kelfer, on
the floor of tho House threo weeks ago that
the General II. V. Boynton, correspondent
of tho Cincinnati Commercial-Gazette, ap
proached him wltha proposition to bribe
him (Kelfer), If tho speaker would
assist in tho passage of
the McOarrahan claim, met m tho com-mlttee-roora
of the Committee on Tost
offices and Post-Itoads. The cotum'.tlce is
composed of Representatives Soplains,
chairman; Adams, Toland, Wilson and
Ward. Boynton appeared for olmsclf,
and Coleman, an attorney of Washington,
for Kelfer. Coleman stated that it would
be necessary for the committee first lo
prove that the charges had been preferred
by Kelfer against Boynton, that the inves
tigation whlcb. had been ordered by the res
olution grew out of tho remark of Kelfer
on tho floor of tho House while
speaking to personal privilege.
The Committee held, however, that it
would not bo Incumbent to prove that
charges had been preferred agalust
Boynton by Kolfcr, inasmuch as they had
been directed by tbo House, under the res
olution, preceded by a preamble con
taining specific charges against Boynton to
proceed to investigation. Tho remarks of
Kcifcr on the floor of the House wero sutll
clent grounds for Investigation, even If no
specific charges were coutalned in the pre
amble. Mr. Coleman said he assumed that in
view of this decision tho burden of proof
was upon G?n. Kelfer to substantiate be
fore the committee) the charges mado
against Boynton. He was able to prove
the facts set forth In the resolution. In
doing so, however, there would be involved
the taking of a great deal of testimony.
Ho wished all tho witnesses hero before ho
proceeded with tho case. Ho had
witnesses In New York, New Jersey and
Ohio, who could not bo brought bore to
day. Mr. Adams suggested that at the
interview when this supposed attempt to
bribe Kelfer was made there was nobody
present except Kcifcr and Boynton. What
he wanted to know was how Mr. Coleman
could procure any wiltnesies before the
committee that could enlighten the com
mittee and tho country In legard to tho

got up and raised her body and placed it on
tho bed. After thai Iip got rags and
mopped up tho blood on the floor, put It
in a bucket and threw it out into the
