Investigation was continued yesterday.
President Greenhut, of the Distilling and
Cattle-Feeding company, being examined.
Before Greenhut took the stand Stevens,
the attorney for the company, asked per
mission to make a statement. He wished
to enter a protest against an Inquiry into
the affairs of the Distilling and Cattle
Feeding company. The company was a
corporation under the laws of Illinois. It
was a manufacturing company and au
thorized to sell its products as other com
panies do. It was not engaged in any un
lawful businese. Its methods of doing
business differed from other companies so
tar an rebate vouchers used by it was con
cerned. Ha. Nothing to Io With DeWar.
These vouchers would be shown by the
president of the company. They were pay
able unler agreement. He wished to dis
claim any and all connection of the com
nany w ith De War's testimony. The offi
cers had no knowledge whatever regarding
It. Whatever there was between DeWar
nd Gibson was under a former company
and neither of th gentlemen (DeWar nor
Gibson) had ever been connected with the
present company. This company took no
interest in the matter at all. Gibson had
designed when this company was formed.
Gibson, he understood, discharged DeWar.
He could not see the riht of the commit
tee to go into the affairs of tb.3 cgmpany.
Greenhut on the Staud.
Greenhut testified that he had been pres
ident of the Distilling and Cattle-Feeding

be any belinf that anything more could or

View, of the Statesmen.
The vote in the house last week was an
unusually large one and most members
think that in view of the lateness of the
Session and the impracticability of passing
any silver legislation in the senate, even if
the house ciuld be persuaded to act, agita
tion should cease. Some of the ardent
anti-silver icen, however, are still inclined
to move in the matter and it is possible
fresh lifts lnay be infused into the sulct.

marketed pure spirits, the blending and
adulteration being done by wholesale
dealers and other purchasers. In reply to
questions by lioatuer, he said that his com
pany was not a trust. He knew of no
trusts. A trust, as he understood it, con
sisted in the co-operation of different in
dividuals or corporations to limit pro
duction and keep up prices. His company
put their goods to the trade at a less cost;
this was one of their objects.
Cause of the Kise of Price.
Eoatner said that it hod been stated be
fore the committee that the price of whisky
had advanced -5 cents a gallon when a
large amount of these vouchers were out.
The reply was that at the time of the ad
vance no more than usual were out. The
price had risen on account of the agitation
before congress looking to an increasing of
the internal revenue tax on liquors. It was
an excessive and speculative demand and
the company had advanced the price to
top it. if they had not done so they could
have sold twice the amount of goods they
did. His company had nothing to do with
right." Rev. William B. Leach, of the
Pauline Str et Methodist Episcopal church,
uttered thete words with a good deal of
emphasis a:, the meeting of the Pastoral
Alliance yesterday and thereby threw the
assembled pastors into a fermeut. Cries of
"Shame! shame!" "Hush! hush!" "No!
no!' rang from all parts of the room.
Leach Stick, to His Text.
"I repeat it," exclaimed Mr. Leach excit
edly, shakii g a long forefinger defiantly in
the faces of his ministerial brethren. "I
say he was t reated just right." Once more
the cries of "Shame" resounded, and the
usually pla id depths of the Monday morn
ing meeting were stirred into waves of in
dignant protest. The scene became dra

How It Differed from a Trust.
Boatner asked him if his company was
not the successor of what was known as
the whisky trust. Witness replied yes,
and Boatner asked what the difference in
the companies was. Greenhut replied
that the distillers who were organized as a
trust were sj parate nnd under a board of
trustees who issued trust certificates.
They had stock in the trusi and could con

Washington, Feb. 14. Josiah Quincy
arrived in Washington yesterday and had
a talk with several Democrats in congress
on the situation. 1 here were some inquir
ies as to whether or not Quincy bore any
message from Cleveland. Chairman Bacon
of the banking committee, which had
charge of the recent attempt to rejieal the
b'herniun bullion purchase, saw (Juincy,
but said that if that uentleuian bore any

Quincy himself said: "I had no authority

The Only Man Who Ever Declined an
Appointment to the United States Su

Marshall, Ills., Feb. 14. Judge John
Scholfield died at his home in this city yes
terday at 13:15 p. m. of peritonitis. He had
been a sufferer for a

at his duties on the
itate supreme bench
Until the first of the

taken seriously ill
Thursday and failed
rapidly till the end
came. Judge Schol
field enjoyed the dis
tinction of being the
only man in tbe na
tion who had ever justice scholfield. ,
declined the office of chief justice of the su
preme court of the United States. This ,
position was tendered him by President I
Cleveland, but he declined on the ground
that he did not consider himself competent
to discharge the duties of the position.
Mourned by the Whole County.
The death of Judge Scholfield is a per
sonal bereavement to every citizen of Clark
county. The funeral services will be held
on Thursday at 2 p. m., under the auspices
of the Masonic lodge, and will undoubtedly
be the largest ever held in eastern Illinois.
J udge Scholfield's death removes a pictur
esque figure. His sturdy honesty, perfectly
pure private character, his modest self-depreciation,
his affable, kindlv manner to
all, and his intense love for home and fam
ily marked him as entirely different from
those persons usually met in the political
arena. He was a man of wide reading and
wonderful memory, while his mental grasp
took a subject in its complete outline at
Had Not an Enemy In the State.
It can truly be said that Justice Schol
field was the most universally beloved and
admired citizen of Clark county. Indeed,
he had not one real enemy in tbe entire
commonwealth. The judge had as a help
meet one who combined all the domestic
virtues with a cheerful, helpful disposi
tion, and she made bis home a haven of
refuge from tbe cares aud trials of public
life. His wife and children were his idols
and when public duties were over nothing
could keep him from them. During the
brief days of his serious illness wife and
children lavished the tenderest care upon
the sufferer and almost seemed to press
back the approach of tbe destroveJ. But
the dark shadow was yet hovering near,
and when tired nature at last relaxed its te
nacious hold on life the sable wing dipped
and the noble soul of John Scholfield took
its flight to realms eternal,

Parson Davie States the Case.
Parson Davies, who had listened to what
Jackson had said, added: "On the night
of the Corbett-Sullivan tight I challenged
Corbett for Jackson and Corbett has no
right now to put Jackson in second place.
Mitchell isn't the champion of England.
Its strange, therefore, why he should be
allowed the precedence. Corbett's anxiety
to get on a match with Jackson was great
when Jackson was in England, but when
be returned Corbett's eagerness vanished."
Prisoners Whipped by the Sheriff.
New Castle, Del., Feb. 13. Sheriff
Gould Saturday morning whipped a num
ber of prisoners in the jail yard here and
put two men in the pillory. Four colored
men each received ten lashes for larceny;
another received five lashes. William Dor
sey, colored, for highway robbery, stood
one hour in the pillory and received forty
lashes. James E. Fornian, also colored,
stood one hour in the pillory for attempt
