29. The know'.j-ilu-e that annUier HWar.l
hail Jx'i'ii ctlTervrt t mi exhibitor at the
exposition for a stipulated mini was made
known in the national com m sioii lyJolin
Boyd Tliac-hor, chairman of the executive
committee on nwanK Tliat-lier njipeareil
in the coiiimis-.:oii anil stated that he had
come over with t!u; .intention of requesting
an executive sc.xsio.i of the commission,
but as he entered the hall he had chanced
Lis mind and determined to let the jn'hlic
help him in the matter he was about to
hriiiK before the commission. He tlicu
Mated that he had Lean rumors of irreg
ularities in the work of judges in some de
partments fur some time, hut they had
been so indefinite t '.nit he could not trace
them to any source. He had, however,
managed to trace and report upon the
last case, which reached him o.i S. it unlay
niht. Jltitiieii sent a package up to the
clerk's uesk for the inf. rmaiion of the
A .Juror for Kevenuc Only.
It contained first, u letter from Tliaclicr
to the president of the commission which
is as follows: "I hereby report that the
executive committee on awards has this
day discharged Mr. 11. F. l:ibee, a juiiue
in the department of manufactures, for
conduit unworthy an honorable man. The
accompanying affidavit explain the
method of procedure adopted, by him
which is of Hii'.di a nature as to jiisti y this
committee in the action it has taken. The
committee respectfully requests advice
and instruction as to further dealing with
this case." The ndidavit recites that
about Ann. 14 a man called at the exhibit
of the Cary ,-vife company limited, of Chi
cago, ami after stating that he was a
judj;t. one of the jurors of awards asked
Mr. t'ary what tne lirst prize would bo
wortli to his company.
Hud it t inrh nn the Award.
llein told that it would be. worth a
Rood deal the visitor said, with a caution
that what he said was to lie regarded as
conliiluit ial: "If it is worth anything to
you to have the lirst prize, let me tell you
sometliinu'. We have picked out three or
four bi," firms here to which we are willing
to frive the lirst prize in tneir classes. We
can lix it with the jury, or enough
of them to make it all right, and
a little money will handle them." Cary
concluded to see the thing; through and
asked how much it would cost. Jle was
told that Zl.Vi) wouid lie enough. He told
his visitor that his lirtn would not nego
tiate on that basis at til, and was nsked
how much the linn would give.
Ottered to Do It for W 1,500.
Finally the juror offered to do the trick
for 1,iio, and Ca'y said he wanted ten
dnys to think it over. Cary went out of
the city and after he got back the juror
called agaiu and was told that he could not
get a cent. Iligbee was not discouraged,
but said that he would do all he could for
the company, and supposed that if the
award was secured Carry would do some
thing for him, to which remark no reply
was made. The other aflidavit simply cor
roborated Cary's statement. Consider
able discussion resulted, and it was stated
that only one side had been heard and it
would lie unfair to condemn a man with
out hearing his defense.
Another l'liase of the Matter.
Commissioner Hyan, of North Dakota,
stittd that several exlnl.itors who were
"not in it" at this fair had determined to
Becure a medal in some manner and they
would persecute a judge in any way possi
ble when they learned that they had not
commended their exhibits. Mr. Thacher
was finally induced by the commissioners,
aided by the venerable Isabella Beecher
Hooker who sat near the New Yorker, to
modify his report to the commission, and
he did m by amending it to read: ".Sus
pended fioia duty pending investigat ion "
The matter was then referred to the com
mittee on awards for investigation.

The attempted award selling matter
which came to light Saturday was also up
before the commission. Commissioner
Mercer, of Wyoming, who is alleged to
have been connected with the affair, arose
to a point of uersonul Drivilege when the
clerk bad finished cal.iug the roll and de
nied the rharges in ti to. lie said he had
never met the wonrin in the case until a
few m mites Ik fore s-e was arrested; he
had never been in tlx ltttssian exhibit in

matter. As Mr. Mer- r finished speaking

and the feeling agait.st them is very
