A BAD DAY FOR JOH. have
A HIHfiI OLD TIME IN SIIERMA,'S OFFICE. man
(Washingtonll Post.) his
Mr. John Sherman has become despe- not t
rate, and life the drowning manso often he a'
spoken of, is clutching at straws. Ho torn
caught at a straw Saturday, and, nstead son
of helping himI to swim, it added to the 'Do
load that is already bearing him down. c
Since the day Mr. Potte" introduced his c
resolution in the House. ordering an in- '
vestigation into the frauds in Louisiana
Iand Florida, the fraudulent Secretary of
the Treasury has rested very uneasily, if ie
indeed he has rested, at all. His first [icu
step was to send out spies to keep the us d
track of the mnen who had charge A
of the ilnvestigation movemenlt. son
Every ettort was directed at first sort
to the defeat of the investigation plan, Ian:
and if the Committee goes to the bottom, Sati
it will show John Sherman's hand to feel
have been guiding the republican mem- ton
be rs of the House in their opposition to siho
the movement. The passage of the the
l'otter resolution made investigation a owl
certainty, and Sherman's next move was fail
to acertain what evidence there was pec
against him, with the view, of course, ku
of getting it out of the way. Mr. Sher- sir,
man stood in dread of that important we
k, functionary "named Anderson, who, at yot
the presidential election, was supervisor 1
in East Feliciana parish, Louisiana. The he
connection of Anderson with that eloc- pit
tion, and the part he played in furnish- He
. ing iL pretext to throw out votes, have rip
been made public. The fact that Mr. I
n- John sherman wrote a letter to one Web- W
ed er, Supervisor of West Feliciana parish, on
to promising him an ample reward or full kt
uy protection if he would consent to aid the Ti
s- schenm to carry the State for Hayes, has M
also been published. The two Feliciana ha
- parishes are immediately opposite each mn
other, on the Mississippi river, and it A:
scouts that Anderson anutd Weber were a cc
a good deal togethor, too. At any rate, or
Anderson was, according to Sherman's m
promise, to share in the official plunder de
that was to follow the inauguration of ti
1P Hayes. Anderson never got his reward, a,
but he did get the Weber letter, and, as a
it is claimed, had a photographic copy tl
made, after which lie returned the origi- a
nal to Weber's widow, Weber having d
five been killed soon after the returning f
o at board accomplished its rascality. John t
ode Sherman has always been afraid of this t
letter, and, as the sequel will show, he
ig is equally afraid of Anderson. Last Sat- c
Uly urday Anderson arrived in Washington 1
from Philadelphia, where he has resided I
ror some time past. He had hardly had
r' time to get the dust of travel brushed 1
from his clothes when one of John Sher- "
dian's tools laid hold of him. Sherman
was evidently on the look out for Ander
son, for one of his agents found him be
ada fore it was generally known that he was
day, in the city. This particular agent of the
S. fraudulent Seoretary is known as Maj.
s can Marks, and hails front New Orleans. The
Major was once a "jedge," and ornament
ed the bench in Louisiana in the palmy
- days of carpetbagism. Under the new
dispensation, there was no demand for
*. such legal talent as "Judge" Marks pos
seossed in Louisiana, and so he brought
himself and his talents to Washington
and offered them to John Sherman as just
NEAR the right size to fill a place in the Treas
ury Department. Marks had known An
sona- dersen in Louisiana, and John Sherman
immediately lioud a lbtter ner for
him than helping other clerks loaf in the THE W.
Treasury. As stated, the former "jedge,"
now Major Marks, called on Anderson
early Saturday morning, and after giv- HOW TI
ing him a cordial shake andasking him to
drink,informed hire that he had come to
"talk business with him.'' Marks. re
ferred to the Weber letter. "Now An
derson," continued the ox-judge, in his The f
most persuasive tone, "you can make a from tl
good thing if you just act right.' I want Jas. E.
you to go with me to see Secretary Sher- N. Y. L
man. Anderson replied that he did not this cot
come to Washington to see Sherman ; and the ceh
after the way he had been treated didn't have be
want anything to do with him. Marks time od
urged him, however, and the result was intense
that he obtained his consent to meet him itol las

Mr. Sherman reached New Orleans about of the
the sixteenth of the month. Things the ot
were then in a very critical condition. er and
D. A. Weber, who was supervisor of elec. - Ies
tions in West Feliciana, bad signed his will g
t protest, but I had not. From what I
heard at the time I felt sure that D. A. 10th
' was acting in the line of duty by putting It i
y his name to the protest. because in one for ht
part of the parish, down in the river re- purpo
gion, there was a small body of disorder-one of
nly roughs, who interfered with the ne- Ade
it groes from pure cussedness. There was the gI
not much politics about it. D. A. was It
r- not very firm in the faith, however. He intent
n had his doubts whether the protest onthe
e- should be made to cover so much, and I min
w made up my mind that I did not propose scene
to testify officially to intimidation when ave

So I refused to s:gn. It was a very few of II

a most sweeping protest, accompanied the
by a forged jurat. That was a fraud, and that
I had made up my mind to denounce it. nori
Just then the visiting statesmen came on can
oar- the field. Weber and I both needed
eel backbone. There is no use in telling a
great long story now, but we were writ- te

ob- ed written guarantees that we should be o

constituted as follows:
Hon. Clarkson N. Potter, N. V., Prosi

Ill., Reed, Maine, Hunton, Va., Stenger;
Pa., Hiscock, N. Y., Morrisson, Ill., Mc.
Mahon, Ohio, Cox, Ohio, and B'utler of
It has be6n. definitely determined to'
send sub-comnmittees to this State and
Florida with full po sers, while the main
committee will continue their sessions'
fand investigations at the National Capi
Mr. Blackburn will be the chairman
of the sub-committee to visit Louisiana,
the other members being Messrs Spring
er and Reed.
Messrs. Hunton, Stenger and Hiscock
will go to Florida. These sub-commit
tees will leave Washington about the"
10th of June.
g It is not unlikely that the committee
e for this State w ill visit our parish for the
purposes of their inquisition, this being
one of the localities, made by Weber and
Anderson to tigure most prominently itn'
s the gteat theft of the Presidency.
It seems to have been the"
ae intention of Mr. Potter to place Butler
on the Louisana Comumittee, but Benja
min "declined the honor" of visiting the
scene of his tyranies and thefts, lest the
avenging arm of retributive justice'
Y. should, peradventure, strike the blow
, his many and eminent virtuas so justly
- entitle him to receive. It is stated,
w however, that Bon.does not occupy his'
1 position on the Committee at the in
on stance of the triends of the Admicistra
ly. tion. He is an uacoumpromising enemy
of Hayes, and it is thought will pursue
eA the exposition of Hayes' usurpation with'
as great avility as any democratic mnem.
as ber of the Commission.
Rn Reed and Hiscock on the other hand
aly are repreoented as corrupt and pliant
nk tools of the Administration, and hence
'r_ the anxiety exhibited by Republican
ith leaders to secure their appointment on
led the Committee. It is not to be doubted'
ud that they would suLbseibe to any mi
it. nority report dictated by the Republi
on can national wire-workers.
