A Messenger Who Drew Pay, but Did No Labor in Return. GAYE HIS SALARY TO HIS BENEFACTOR, And Received About Ten Per Cent, for Signing the Rolls Interesting and Damaging Evidence. The Investigation Into the charges preferred against Postmaster Wheat by Itcpresentntlvc ttnloe was continued to day nnd ft large number of witnesses examined. The most important testi mony was given by William K. Brad ley, who, although ostensibly an em ploye of the House, never porformed any services and turned over the money to Wheat's son. Thcro was also other damaging testimony given. Iteprcscntallvo Caswell of Wisconsin, representing Mr. Wheat, called the at tention of the commlttco to the net making npptnptlattons for tho House postofllce, and contended that tho phiascology of the act gave tho post master the absolute right to uso the whole amount ($5,000) appropriated for carrying the malls. Ileprcscntatlvo Spooner, the chair man, submitted n statement, made by the Clerk of tho House, to show that the full turn had been appropriated annually clnce the Fortv third Con gress. MIt. DALTON', who was postmaster of the House dur ing the last three Congresses, was called nnd testified that ho had not conaldcrod any of the $3,000 as n perquisite for granting tho contract, lie had found that tho contract could not be thor oughly carried out for less than the full appropriation and he had given the contract to Culberson for $-1,000. Hie had advanced about $1,800 to Ctilber ton, Vio was his father-In-hw. to puicbate wagons, etc. In answer 'to a question by 3Ir. Cas well, the witness said that he had had a convetsatlon with Mr. Wheat about the time the latter became postmaster, concerning tho coutract for carrying the malls, and told the latter how the contract had been granted. In answer to Mr. Ilayos, a member of tbo committee. Mr. Dnlton said that lis had not told Mr. Wheat nt this conver sation that he could gut $150 per month out of the contract. l'OSTM.VSTRIt WHEAT asked the witness If he had not assured him that Mr. Culberson could give hltn $190 a month out of the mall contract and it would be all right? "Never, sir; never," was the reply. MK. WILLIAM K. HUAULKV was questioned by Mr. Knloe, and testi fied he was acquainted with Mr. Wheat and had never served In the postotllce, but had been sworn iu In March as a messenger. Mr. Waller Wheat came to his bouse and asked him if he desired to make a few dollars, until he could get a man from Dakota to fill a vacancy. He served from the middle until tua last part of March, or rather he never went near the otllce, but he drew $07.50, of which he paid Mr. Wheat all but 5, which was the amount he agreed to pay me for serving. He was not discharged at the end of the month, but continued on, representee a Mr. Frank Hall. He drew $90 07 uuriBg April for Mr. Hall. "About a week after," said witness, "I went to Mr. Wheat's room, and he wanted all of the mosey but $5, which I refused, as I thought I ought to have half, but I COMl'lUUIUEU FOK TBV DOLLAR. When f was discharged, 31 r. Wheat Informed me that hU authority for pro viding a substitute for me had beea quettloeed." W.

Samuel Slater, a young Kngllshman 22 years of age, arrived In New York November 1, 17S0. He remained In that city for about six weeks. While there he heard of 5loses Ilrown of Providence from the captain of u Provi dence packet, and after some corre spondence in regard to the cotton manu factures, at the suggestion of Sir. Ilrown he wont to Providence. On January IS, 1780, In company with Mr. Ilrown, he went to Pawtucket. and soon after began to construct carding, spinning and other machines after the models of those In use la Slrlilchard Arkwrlght'a mills la Kaglaod, In which he had served Ids apprenticeship. He at tlrat tried to make ue of some machines that were in Mr. llrown's poiessloa, but found them so defective that he could get do satisfactory results. Then, duckling to construct machines after tua Kaglish models, he wag confronted with the difficulty that he bad SOI'I.ANSOK IRVWIJ.'l.K, aad ia those days the English Govern ment jealously prohibited a ay such aUU to manufacture ia other parts of the world being takes out of the kingdom. Slater, however, with characteristic de uiujIuhIIi'b, set about the eoastructloa of the machines, depending oa his memory aloae, aad na account of the difficulties be necessarily encountered, be did aot succeed in getting the ata (hlnery in working order until Decem ber 20, m. It Is aot to be wondered at that Slater It ok float Jaauary till December to bul'd the sew machines, when Ike fact tl at he aad ao models or drawings to work from is taken iato coaaiderattoa. Iadatd, it is surprising that he success fully accomplished the uadettakiag la this date.

In the year IS:? I the Hbmle Island Historical Society, recognising tlt im portance of Mr. Slater's work as a pforeer In the cotton manufacture, re quested him "to draw up and present to this society a history of the first Intro dattion of cotton spinning Into thfs cminlty, together with an account of the dlfnriiltfes attendant thereupon, and of such other incidents In respect thereunto as he may deem important or Interesting to have preserved for Ihe infotmailoit of rmteiity." It is to be refcietled that Mr. Slater did nototmplv with this request, as he doubtless could bare thrown light on many points that ate now HsmvKi is onsrrrtm-. At his death, however, a document was found among his papers which was the beginning nf such an account. Although It was undoubtedly In Mr. Plater's own handwriting, It Is written In the lldtd person. It Is given In Mr. White's book, and Is as follows' Samuel Slater was 1orn tn the town of Helper, In the County ot Derby, .Tune It, lita. On .Mine OT, 1788, being about It jts of tge, lie went to live with Jettalluli Sttntt, in Mllfonl, near Helper (the In ventor of Hie Derby rlblied stocking ma chine, ami several years the jtartner of Sir ltlelianl Arkwrlaht In the cotton-spinning IhisIhcm). as a clerk, who was tlien bullJ log a largo factory at Mllfotil, where said Slater continued until August, I?!). Dur ing four or Sve of the late years his time was solely devoted lo the factory as gen eral overieer, both as respected making machinery ami the manufacturing depart ment. On Hie first day of September, 1W, he look Ms departure from Derbyshire for London, nnd, on the 18th, he sailed for New York, wh- re lie arrived lit November, after a passage of sixty-sit days. He left Nsw Yotk In January, 17W), for Providence, ami there mailo nn arrangement with Jlcssrs. Almy A Ilrown to rommence prep arations tor cotton spinning at Paw tucket On tbe ISIhday of the satno month the venerable Moses Ilrown took htm out to 1'antmKet, where lie commenced making the machinery, principally with tils own hands, and on the SOtli of Deoemlwr fol lowing he started three cards, drawing and roving, and seventy-two spindle, whlth were worked by an old fulling mill water wheel fn a clothier's building, In which they continued (pinning about twenty mouths, at the expiration of which tlmo they had several thousand pounds of yarn on band, notwithstanding every ex ertlon was ued to weave It up and sell It. I'.arly In the year 1718, Altny, Ilrown fc Slater built n small factory In that village (tnouti and railed to this day the old fac tory), Inwblrli tliey st In motion, July It. the tirenaratton nnd seventv-twnsiiln- dles, and slowly added to that number as tie sales of the yarn appeared more prom Mug. Moses Ilrown, the real founder of the great lhuwn and Ives family, was the directing spirit and employed Slater In his original undertaking, although he did not continue In the partnership, but passed his Interest over to a kins man of bis own name. In a letter, also given In Mr, White's liook, Mr. Ilrown aj"lbat the young man from Kng land made a mill In his own way," but they "wire more than a twelvemonth before tbey could get a single cotton warp perfected." Attempts had been made to manu facture cotton In Itboile Island before Mr. glutei's arrival, but they had all ended In failure. Several "spinning machines had been constituted by for eign mechanics, but tbey were all IKY l U'MfcY AMI CltlDB. All this machinery had come Into the possession of Moses Ilrown shortly lie lore he beard of Mr. Slater and had been removed to Pawtucket. which ac counts for tbe fact that Mr. Ilrown took the stranger on his arrival la Jan uary, KOO, to the tbeu subutban dis trict. Samuel Slater, "Ihe Father of Amer can Manufactures," as he has some times justly been called, was a remark able man, but he did nothing to keep himself prominently In the public eye. Modest v seemed to tiae been n prevail ing characteristic, and he had a phenom enal capacity for hard work ami gob slant application. Il is said that for years at the beglnlng of his business he worked sixteen hours a day. The i H KEAl'llIMl HESl'LT OP HIS I.AHORS have never been properly estimated. Ills work was the beginning of a new era ami was fraught with greater con sequences than many events that have received vastly more attention. Prom tbe bumble beginning at Pawtucket la 190 there grew in 20 years t7 milU, running &0.000 spindles a number which In the present year has expanded to not leas than M .OOO.iHTo. It U curious ihkt an industry which tound root in spite of Kngland's policy of prohibition and which could dispense today wtlH ubv protection w batever. If it could have free machinery, should be cle hi aline Its centenary at a tluie when the United States is drifting back to the dUcaided comiueteial policy of tke mother country.

The prominence of the porsons involved made some of the Investigations unusually Interesting, and the private and public afTalrs of men of national reputations were fre quently brought to light through this medium.
