was uour moro strongly shown than this

rho court was opened at 10 05 o'clock. Tho
lury riled into tho box, but tho Government
counsel wero lato, as usual.
Ills Honor lnqulrod who was tho special
counsolfor tho lato Becond Assistant Post-mostcr-Oencral,
Mr. Wilson said that Colonel Totton, Mr.

V Itli that roport was another (rom tho Second

know 1( that was offerod tn ovldcnco.
Mr. Wilson was not euro nbont it, but
thought that tho Government did not otter It.
Mr. Chandler said that It was offered and
ruled out.
His Honor snld that ho had a curiosity to soo

Qencrnl, and lequcstcd tho Dopartmont to
furnish lilm with n copy. That ha 1 boon ilono,
but ho did not recollect thnt It hat bocnot

Mr. Wilson asked permission to soo thoro

thought that they might roach an understand

would not defend any man known to havo

Thoy had been told an hundred tlmos that this
countr) had boon demoralized and that It was
JNcccsunr) to Nncrlllco Homebody
to lead to tho road to honesty. Tho lato war
was not n demoralization, It was a reforma

only good. When thoy broLo tho shacklos

would ho put 11 stain upon It by any such

Tho counsellor tho Oovornment, Mr. Mer

Uobollctcd thnt otory Jurj man wished to

manhood, and thotu wero not words basa
enough to.doicrlbo a man who would give
dishonest verdict. Thoy should not bo gov-'

tho (nets.
Ho then touchod upon tho duty ot a lawyer,
and said that no matter upon whh.li side ha
was engaged, It was his duty to mako tho testi
mony clear.
It thero was any doubt about It, thou It
should bo cleared up. It w as not necessary to
abuse anybody. Thoro was no logic In abuse,
and when a law) er calls u defendant a thiol or

Thooul) thing Icfton this routo was tuootdot

ing an) thing else, they Indulged tn tho tormi
thief, tobber and pickpocket.
Ho then took up routo 11,110. Hero It was
charged that (also potltlons were II lod on July
8, 1870. and It turned out that the chargo was
true, with two exceptions, 1 Irst, that tho potl
tlons woro not filed nt that time, and sec ml,
that thoy wero not (also, nn 1 that Is all thoro
was in the truth ot that charge.
Tho chargo was that whllo (JenTH llraly

not. Thcrewos notajuryon earth unless oar

would find a verdict ot guilty upon the testi

lr Miner, lterdell L Co, wore chargo 1 with
filing talso potltlons nnd Mr, llllss had nl
milled that they wero nil genuine, the oath
true, nnd tho only ct Ideuco that tho ordor was
n fraud that It was mado 111 compliance with
theso genuluo petitions.
Then in this cao thero was another order
claimed to hat 0 been mado by Hrady an 1 tho
tesilmon) shotted It to have boon nialohy
Trench. They further chargo I that In this
caso an order was mado to tako ort tit o trips
and that was pronounced n fraud. Subse
quently an order was mado putting tho trips
back, nnd that was pronounced n trau 1. It
seems that It was pretty hard to satisfy tho

That was a fatal variance, nnd whether tho
oath was good or bad It vitiate 1 the verity of
tho charge. Ho did not caro whothor tho
oath was good or bad so far as tho caso went,
but did so far as his clients wero coucoruod.

If tho petitions had been false thoy would
lint 0 been ot no at all It was allegod that they

On routo No. 38,110 (also potltlons woro
charged with having been llled, nit 1 in opon
court they wero admitted to bo truo. That was
tho dlffcrcnco between reports and tacts, bo

that In this routo tho ordor was mado on tho

that thero was not such an ordot ma lo on that
day, but It was mado on tho lltli of May, n tlmo
prior to when tho alleged conspiracy was
lormed, Hero again It was charged that falso
oaths wero tiled, but not proton, nor was
thero ono word ot tostlmony about it.

tho contractor was t Milled to this pay, nnd tho
Department was compelled to glvo it. It tho
becond Assistant Postmastor Ooncral had dono
differently ho. would hnto -.lolatod the law,
and hero ho was put on trial for not violating
tho law.
Oniouto No. 3"or, It was chargod that a
talso oath was llled on July 10, 187'), an 1 tho
testimony shored that Itwas llled May 11.
This was a totnl variance. Another thing, It
had not been shown that tho oath was falso.
