Ho (witness) had brought a charge of vnerancy against patties who went to Klloy's place. Lieutenant Guy, witness said, was TOO MUCH OK A QXNTLKUAK to protect policy shops; witness never knew anything against Hertzog's place; never had any suspicions that gambling was being carried on there.

"Well, with the exception ot what I have si ready said in regard to several raids that were made, 1 do not think there was any lack of energy on the part of the Lieutenant; his efficiency compared well with that of other ofilcers." In reply to a question by Commts sloner Ilobett, Detective Block sftld that the playing at Hertrog's place wa not carried on so secretly that It was not known. Ho had seen the men playing from the street. Only nbout 38J per cent of raids, the witness said, were sue cental. To Mr. Claughton Detccttvo Dtock described what is known as a general rntd. Ills duties now wcro of such a eencrnl character as to tako him away from raids. Ito principally looked after pawn shops. CArTAIH AUSTIN of the Third Precinct was called and testified to having been In tho service for twenty- four years. Lieutenant Guy camo to him nt tho old Fifth Precinct as n sergeant In 187 or '78. "Ho was always a faithful, efficient and diligent ofilcer." said tho Captain, "and Iliad implicit connaenco in mm. no qui nis duty faithfully and well. I have nevor known his character for probity and honesty to be questioned. He (wit ness) was promoted to Captain In April, I860. Ho was n lieutenant whon Guy was his sergeant In tho old Fifth (now First) Precinct. Till! MOItAtS OP AN OFFICElt. On cross-examination Captain Austin was risked If ho took Into consideration the morals of n man who held a lieu tenant's position. "Yes, sir;" ho replied. "What would you think of a man who would tako presents from lottery men; who would Instruct otllcors to tako women in a cab to a house?" "I would consider hlmuot tho proper kind of man and that his conduct had been very Indiscreet," replied tho Uap tain. "Wou'd you rcmovoorcontlnuo such a man In service T" "Well, I would not remove him for the first time, and If I had the power I might take a different notion, but that icmalns with a higher power." Mr. Clouehtori You have never known any such conduct on the part of Lieutenant Guy as hypothetlcally asked by Mr. Ha7elton? No. sir." Mr. Claughton Was there anything that cast the least suspicion upon Lieu tenant Guy in tbe trial of Shurland of ever having Issued such ordenT District Attorney Hazelton objected, and Commissioner Douglass said the question could not be answered. Commissioner Douglass Could tbe evidence used In that trial contradict that of Maddox? Mr. Clatighloisald that the record In tho Bliurlnnd case had nothing to do with tho case of Lieutenant Guy. Captain Austin said he thought there were fewer policy shops In Lieutenant Guy's precinct than some of the omers. MAJOH MOOKK TKSTIt'IK. Major and Superintendent of Police Moore was called and questioned by Mr. Claughton; he know Guy several years. He had always borne the beat reputation among the people who knew him. He (witness) had received letters from citizens complimentary to Lieu tenant Guy's efficiency. "Colonel," asked Mr. Hazelton, "If a Ileutenent should give orders to two married officers to take two women In a cab to a bawdy house would you dis miss such a man from the force?" "Yes, sir." "How would It affect the erheleaey of an orrleer should he receive presents of dlffereut kinds?" "Very seriously, and I would remove him." Detective Home was ealled and testi fied to tbe third successful raid made upon ltliey's place on Pennsylvania avenue; Detective Haft and Sergeant llurgee were there with him; Block was not there. Detective lUoek was recalled and questioned by Commissioner Hlne. Ills first raid on Ittley, he said, was made oa a warrant from tbe Chief of Police. There was no warrant in the second raid, and the third rah! was wade oa a warrant Issued from the Police Court. To Mr. Claughton Detective Ittoek st.hl that in his testimony be did say that the raid on Hiley's place was only known to himself, Hah, Burgees and Guy that is, to no one hut the poliee; since then be bad heard that tbe elerk knew it. He (witness) had not acted actively In the Guy case. He bad COkiaVLTKO WITH ARKOL0 about one week after the commence ment of the case. He had been ac costed on the street by Lieutenant Ar nold half a doom times since. He bad seen Lieutenant Arnold once in ike yard is the rear of tbe Health OsBee in tbe Webster building. He bad not tokl Arnold what be was golag to testify to. He (witness) bad conversations with Arnold in reference to Use teat! monr in his (Arnolds) caw; witness got tbe original copy of the proceed ings from a brother of Arnold, lie never knew a cony to be in the posies aloe of a newspaper editor. sjutoiUKT wuoaes' csunacT.

It could only be judged by his reputathxi In the general community. uge vii on tke force and known all over tike city.

To tbe question, do you know hli general teputatlon fortruth ami veracity arming his friends, neighbors, ami asso ciates? theie was another objection. "Do you know his character fortruth and veracity?" "1 have hoard It questioned; I have heard the officers say he was AN UNTRUTHFUL MAN. Ills reputation is bed ; there Is no enmity between me and Ilurgess, added wit nefs; my feelings toward him are kind." "What do you mean by veracity?" atketl Mr. Harelton. "I mean that the officers have said he was untruthful." "Do you know the meaning of veracity?" "Ye, It means bad character for one thing." Witness couldn't swear positively to any one man who had said- liurgeM wa3 an untruthful man; be had heard some of the officers of tho Fifth Precinct say so. He (witness) had had charge of the arrests at Police Headquarters since 18f0. Policeman Fisher knew Sergeant Ilurgess. "Do you know his reputation for truth and veracity?'' was nsked. Pending an objection to the question, which Mr. Claughton said was a very important ono, an adjournmont was taken at 1:20 p. m. until 10 o'clock to morrow morning. GREAT EXCITEMENT IN BUENOS AYRES.

"Ono does not have to come to Cape May to see that the commanding figure of the Republican party Is James G. Illalno.

Instead of summontng him here. It would have been heralded n a compromising humiliation to the President. Such a visit was paid last summer. Mahomet went to the moun tain only a year ago, and we all recall Ibe wldesnreud rumors of disaffection that were heard. History has repeated Itself. Throughout Mr. Maine's atti tude toward his party has changed. After two days' careful oltserv.ttion, In which 1 have seen the President nnd Secretary of Slate many times. I stake my judgment on tbe assertion that their relations are more strained than they were one year ago. The men as HKMale without any cordiality; a mutual reserve posseere them.

Kven If It were settled that the party were behind the Secretary, tbe machinery of tbe Government Is Iu the bands of the President. Mr. Maine must stay his term out to show that he can remain, and to disinfect himself of the 'Jingo' taint now ascribed to him. He baa formulated a policy of peaceful comnuic'Ul stfrandlzenu-Bt, ami he must make a show of development. He cannot retire to a cave ami promulgate his theoiles to rivals who have no per sonal ends to serve la carrying thein out. No Indeed , nor can be alford to give up tbe chief post in tbe Cabinet, iu order that Keed or McKlnley way secure it. He wouldn't be half so pow erful as a political martyr as a 'hen pecked' Secretary of State. To what purpose would he have endured so many petty bumilatlons. He must go oa, and be knows it.

Mr. McKean says that the President has paid $10.00(3 rash for the cottage and furniture, and that the payment was ac cepted by tho subscribers, "very greatly to llielr roerct and ncalnst their wishes, frequently nnd earnestly expressed to tbo Ptesldcnt.' This establishes the fact that tho cottage was a gift, that It was accepted ns such, and that no thought ot paying for It ever entered tho Presidential mind until adverse comment was observed in tho press. "Then there was a scurrying around to find libs to explain the possession of the cottage, and as usually happens In such cases, more weru found than were ticccsMry. ami they did tiot ngree with each other.

He has not been very lone In office, but I think It ought to be observed publicly, tint thetc have been more misprints ami errors In tbe matter which rrvnes to m from the Printing Oltice, bills and such things, within the last year than have oc curred before In the same period of time. I think that Is the experience of all the members of the Senate, and that there should lie somewhere a more cireful proof reading and scrutiny of the matter which l printed." Senator Gorman, a member of the Senate Committee on Printing, defended the Public Printer. He said. "I feel Ixmnd to say that the present rubllc Printer, I lielleve, endeavors to discharge ills duties faithfully. There have been a great many mtstsKes in ttte matter that has come front that oltice. the printing of bills, of the Cungrtt M'liiul Utcortl and of various public document. It Is fair In say for him thai a large portion of these mistakes Is Incidental to, and always follows, a change in the bead of that oltice. The head of tbe oltice belongs to either one of the two parties. He U In the order of things COMPELLED TO CHVJOIE proof-readers and other officials con nected with him, who are directly re sponsible for tbe management of that rttlce. and that change has probably been greater under the present Public Ptluter tbau under any of his predeces sors in tbe saute length of time, and as a matter of course this leads to an In creased number of mistakes Now. from an experience with three or four Public Printers who have preceded tbe pretest Incumbent, I think be is do ing all that mortal man can do with tbe facilities be has, with the miserable office (with lis bad atmosphere aad bad lights), which we have been attempting to improve, with ttte number of em ployes be has." Prior to the establishment of the Government Printing Office, several systems, including the contract system, were tiled aad condemned by Congress on account of the delay and inferior quality of the work. Tbe joint resolution providing for tbe establishment of the Government Print ing Office passed the House of Kepre-seniaiivt-s oa May 31, 100, by a vote of ISO lo 't. sad was concurred ia by tbe Senate un June 18, ImUO, by a vote of 31 to 1 1 Iuiing the debate on the reaoluoost ia tbe House of Representative, Hon. John A- Gurley of Ohio, ebatratan of the Committee on Printing, said: "Tbe public printing has been made a iubject of general aiscuaslon. strife, and even quarrels, ia both Houses of Congress and between tbe various po litical parties with short intervals for a full half eentury. It baa brought HOBS COaTUHT AKO DlSUSUcB upon our government than have come front any single cause that can be men tioned. "But some nervous gentlemen are greatly aiarmrrf at tbe idea that a Gov ernment printing office would become a sort of hospital for political invalids. These U just about as much danger that tbe Kew York Tribuia. Ikruld and yyuiff ijSjfeg ftl become a yful'j.'"" for broken down potitielans as that a public printing office would beiome smb. managed by a competent and The tf oris of tbe suolUmea of all parties have ever bees to crush out tbe labors of those seeking a radical and genuine reform in that department. The atltmpt to estaMUb such an office at now proposed bat bee made without the Wast regard tu party advantages, and I trust thai no bfli will Baas either mouse estabUabtog one thaTnas evert ike nU of partisanship about it." Were it possible for tbe cbalrmasj of the Uuuse I'oauuliu on Printing of the Thirty sixth Congreas to return la this planet and inspect tbe f culu of bis labor the twmewM- printing office tbat has spread, and U tUl spreading, itself over Swampoodle." braacha ia nearly every executive Penartswat--be would. a doubt, he surprised, probably shocked.

JJvSi-'tlaleJ, Ut violation of the plain prorlsiotu of the law of July 81, IWS, wlirch says "That frwn ami after the rtassajre of this act It shall be the duty of the lubllc Printer to employ no workmen not thoroughly skilled In their rcspert Ive branches of Iwrlnstry, m shown by trial of their skill under his direction " This law ha been more flatrantly violated dnrlng the past year than ever before "In the same period of time," and Senator Gorman "hit the nail on the head" when he stated that " a matter of course this leads to an In creased number of mistakes." These "growing difficulties" the in crease of "misprints ami errors" can neither lie charged lo the "faciilthw" placed at the disposal of the PnWte Printer nor to the "miserable otHce. with its bad atmosphere," for his pra dectstrtrs ami the predecessws of Ms employes had to face TUB SAMR r)tAI)VATOKS The rnly excuse that ran fairly be made for the Increase of errors and misprints during tbe past year is the fact that the employes have been permitted or com pelled to work twelve, fourteen ami sixteen hour a day In that "miserable office with Its bad atmosphere," which few men can do ami maintain the quan tity and quality or their work. (m pelllne employes lo work In excess of eight Itrmrs a day Is also a violation of law. Economy and accuracy would have been secured by the re employ ment of the skilled employes discharged for political reasons and assignlnsr them to duly as an "tight hour night force," instead of working Ibe regular day force far Into the nlaht. Kvery Intelli gent person will readily see that 100 fresh men will do mote ami lietter work Iu eight hours than 300 will do in four hours after an honest day's work of eight hours in a "miserable office with bad atmosphere." Senator Hoar ald that the present Public Printer "has not lieen very long In oltice." but It should be observed publicly that ho has done more to IMI'Atlt TIIK KKKICIR.NTY of (he printing department of the Gov ernment than" any of his predecessors by wholesale discharge In violation of law; In violation of the platform on which his party was placed In power, and In violation of the prlnclp'es of the International Typograptdcat Union and tbe pledges made tn prominent mem bcrs nf said organization by the leaders of bis party in the last campaign. If tLu principles of the I T I' were carried out In Ibe Government Prlnilntr Office all competent employes would 1 e secure In their positions, as thy are in private offices, so long as they faith fully discharge their duties, and the ertnis and misprints reduced lo a mini mum. No (spable public officer, who, If he be honest, mutt look upon "pub lic office as a public trust," rather than as a "private snap," would dismiss ef ficient employes without cause and rill their places with others less "skilled In their respective branches of Industry," In violation of the evident spirit, if not the very letter of the law. Such a course would not be In accordance with Found "business principles," yet It ! a Isct that iut.se lime uonoreii piinctme have lieen almmt entirely Ignored in the discbarge snd appointment of em- filoyes by Public Printer Palmer dur ng the iast year.

Thrt wm an event at the State prison this morn ing In striking contrast with the im pending tragedy. A big-boned, healthy -looking man, six feet three Inches In height, stepped out of the prison gate a free citlren after twelve years and fottr months of sternly confinement. William Hums was only 17 years old when he was sent to State prison from Syisctise under sentence of life Impris onment for in tinier. While under the Influence of liquor, believing that two nun were Hying to steal his employer' team of horses, he assaulted them, ami one of them died of the Injuries re ceived. Strong efforts were made to obtain executive Interference, ami they wcte finally successful. This morning tbe messenger from Albany arrived with the pstdon, ami CASTINO ASIDK TIIK TRIOON OAKK. which he had worn all through the years of his early manhood, and don ning the garments of civilisation. Wil liam Hums walked through tbe door w ay of tbe prison and passed the great iron gale a free and happy man. And down in the basement of the prison building the murderer, Kemmler, sat on the ride of Ids Hide Iron cot, staring it the steel walls of his narrow cell, await ing the call that should St MMOX It I VI TO IIKATK. Kemmler does not know when tbe call will come. He knows that he U tn die some timo this week, and ha U as nearly prepared for death as be hn been at any time. He ate a aood bretk fast this morning. It there was any doubt of his healthy appetite awl hw sound physical condition it should tw dispelled by the story which comet from Sawyer, the hospital physician Dr. Smwj er Inspects all tbe food tint goes to Kemmler. A few days sgo he beard that the keeper, who carriai the food down stairs, had been esllng p-ut of It. He spoke to the man about the story and the reply ne received wis "Ob, Krtnler eats too much. He licks the plates." So far as is known only two of the twenty one witnesses summoned by tho warden have arrived. They are Dr. C. Y. SlePonakl of New York, president of tbo State Lunacy Commission, and llolierl Dunlap of New York. Dr. Fell of ltuflato was not here this morning. He is tbe man who tried his patent re suscitating apparatus on TIIK CALf AND THK HOKIN In the prison when they were electo cuted last December. The npparatm which hss been used with success upon persons who bad been ia tbe water failed to revive either tbe calf or the horse. Dr. Fell tnsy try this machine upon Kemmler. What promised to Iw preliminary tragedy occurred near tbe Stale prison early this mornlne. X. W. Hosier, an electrician from Sew York, who ha been here for some time working for the warden, was found at 5 o'clock I) log oa be road way under an approach to the railroad bruise badly cut and bruised. How long be bad lain there bo one knew. It was supposed that he was under tbe Influence of liquor when be fell. He was taken to tbe hospital, where be was found to be severely but not seriously injured. WAUDEX pimrrox said to tbe special correspondent of the railed Press this morning tbat so test of tbe dynamo bad bean made within the last twenty four boars nd that none would be made to-day. He U coendent tbat the machinery Is is per feet condition. The understanding sdll prevails thst the viccutloa will occur between mid nigbt and o'clock to morrow m ru lag. Kemmkr's body will probablv !- burled in tbe prison burial lot on FtuU avenue. Thin is a desolate patch f ground, bounded on tbe north by Fort till) Cemetery on tbe east and west by tbe property of citizens aad cm tbe south by Pitch avenue. Kemmler ccma was made in the prison- shop st vera! months ago. Warden iHtrstoa received telegram to day frames.
