t PlTTsnuno, Dec. 21. Tho congres
sional investigating committco began
its session hero to-day. The commit
tco was represented by Congressman
M. II. Ford, of Michigan, chairman of
tho cemmittoe, and Congressman Rich
ard Guonthor, of Wisconsin. Judge
Simmonds, special agent of the treas
ury department, was also present.
During the morning llobert C. Elliot,
chief of the bureau of charities, Judge
William Ramsoy, former ohairman of
tho poor board, and Qeorgo Hoffman,
examiner of tho dopartmont of charity,
were examined. Chief Elliott said
that insane people and the dcoropit and
ignorant class of peoplo appliod for re
lief to a great extent, who should nov
cr have been admitted into tho coun
try. Ho recited twenty-fivo cases,
soino of them criminals, of peoplo who
had come from foreign countries
against tho provisions of tho law. One
caso was, that of an Englishman who
had killed a British officer; another
was an English woman who had been
brought here by her betrayer and aban
doned. She was taken to tho poor
farm, went insane and still remains
there. She had cost the city, thus far,
$1,590, and as she is a strong woman
and may live many years, she may cost
the city $8,000 or $4,000 more beforo
she dies. Another caso was a for
eigner who had served time at lack
well's Island and after leaving thoro
had been shipped from Castlo Garden
to Pittsburg, and aftor boing takon to
tho poor farm, stolen goods wero found
in his possession. . He theu admitted
that ho had been a thief before ho
came to thin country. Tho city insti
tutions, he said, wero crowdod to over
flowing, and if it wero not for tho for
eigners who aro entitled to land horo,
chiefly through Castlo Gardon, there
would bo plenty of room for the oaro of
thoso justly entitled to it. Judge
llamscys testimony was a coroboration
of that of Elliot. Examiner Hoffman
said that ho had seen immigrants with
the brands of a foreign work honse
tiokoted to different sections of the
country, and that emigrants had ap-
ilied to the bureau of charity for ro
ief tho day after their arrival at Castlo
