H. If. Wills, United States Attorney, D. C. A true and verified copy of tho original indictment on file and «if record in the office «.f the Cleik of the Supreme Court of the District of Columbia. Teste, R. J. Meios. Clerk. By W. F.. Williams, Assistant Clerk. The only witness against Harrington was Blatter himself, and the indictment was not called up until 1880. On December 80, 1880. it was nolle prosequied on motion of District Attorney Corkhtll. The reason was this : That the statute of limitation pro tected Harrington, and he gave ft out that he would plead that statute if the case pretoed. 'Ibis would prevent any conviction and to save the Government the expense of a needless prosecution a nolle prosequi was entered. In this ease Harrington was assisted by his fellow conspirator in the safe burglary, Arthur B. Williams, Esq., and the sum re ceived lor getting Blatter off, was divided between them, each man, it is alleged, getting $15,090. The fact of Harrington's refusal to plead "not guilty," ami his threat to t*ike advantage of the statute of limita tion, which barred any proceeding, Is slgnili cant, and shows his shrewdness. When he did this the Government had no other alternative that, to abandon the ease, be cause the trial would have been a very ex iM naive one, and the ends of justice would llnally have beeij defeated—although the evidence would have boon «lireet and damu I ing—by Harrington taking refuge behind the statute, which he said ho would resort to iu order to shield himself. ; I VEHTISRDAri) KXODIM, TIiouhaikIh of Wiliuinjttouiitn'A TAkloj Part In the lli-Centennlal. • Never before In the history of Wilmington hns there been auch t day lu poinc of rail road travel -us yeatej# It is safe to say that between 5,000 "'00 ppople left this city bound lor the î»i- •eniiiul. Many were unable to procure tlekew owing to the great crush at the otHce, and pkid their way ou the ears, preferring to pay the extra ten cents to standing an hour in line. The ex cursion tickets were ali »old before9o'clock, and get urn tickets were «old at the regular rate of $1.20, which caused much grumbling among those who had based their trip upon the ad ertised excursion rate oi 75 cents. Trains ran as fast as made up, and the long platforms were crowded all the morn ing. The people took the inconvenience aud delay good naturedly. Every car went away filled, and two on a seat with one in the middle was the rule. So far as learned no mishap of a serious nature befell any one from Wilmington, although the crash and Jam in Philadelphia was terrible. If the going to Philadelphia was bad the coming homo was worse, and confusion worse c founded reigned supreme at the Broad street on time, and the overworked aud pushed railroad men werejn misery. As soon as the tableaux parade, which by the wuy was a failure for want of sufficient light, was finished, a rush wus made for home. At 11.50 It was impossible to get oven a foothold on the sidewalk at the station. The train that should have left Philadelphia at,11.33 never left until alter 1 o'clock, and tired and weary excursionists were being landed lu Wilmington until 5 o'c lock this morning. To-day everybody is weary, and the unanimous verdict is that one parade is enough lor a week. The more sensible ones w ho could gave up all idea of getting Iioiuc last night and accordingly hunted lodgings, perhaps a hundred or more coming down on the Southern fust mail, which arrived here at 8.35, half an hour late. station. None of the trains to day's travel. The number of passengers bound for Phil adelphia to-day is comparatively »mall, and they arc quite readily handled at the new «talion. H is not at all likely that the scenes of yesterday ~will be r<*pcate<l for u long time. , The paratlc <»f the Knights Templars lias created but little interest out side ol Pliiladclplila, i.ml even there the peo ple are not very enthusiastic over the display of chapiMiux aud feathers. They are tired out and sighiug for Sunday, when the brass bauds wHl be hushed aud the measurod tread of weary marchers stoppai for a while. Almut 80 members of 8t. John's Com maiidery No. 1, Knights Templar of this city, left with the First Regiment Band, at 7.45 this morning, fully equipped. Their hcadquarters*rlll be at the Hotel Lafayette, where accommodations for Knights and their wives have been provided. They not expected to return in a bn«ly. To-morrow's military display Will un doubtedly be a tine affair, the weather per mitting, and will attract a large crowd. The First Regiment, D.V.

AN ENORMOUS 0B0WD OF VISITORS The Grand Trades Display, With ïhe Mystic Pageant and Reception ut the Academy In (he Evening. Philadelphia, Oct. 20 —The otreets yes terday were equally as crowded as the previous day, the caver desire of all to see the great trades display manifesting itself early iu the morning by the huriyliigerowds who bent their stepB toward Market, Chest nut und Broad streets, or who packed them selves In the passeugcr railway ears, re gurdless of discomfort, so thev were carried to the»r objective point. At 10 o'clock loco motion wus difficult on the si Jewalk» of these thoroughfares, aud those who were not content to struggle along at a snail's pace, or dodged around the groups which were constantly getting in their way, were compelled to take to the highways, at least for portions oi the distance traversed. Among the crowds were many who were evidently visitors from suriouuding cities uni towns, who came iu entire families, from the aged grandmother to the youngest infant, und whose lunch baskets, shawls, waterproofs and other wrappings Denoted that they had come prepared to make them selves as coiniortahlc us possible during their stay and ou the homeward journey. By the time the procession began to move the stand« along the route were ail occupied, every available |xdnt lor sight MC'ug was taken advantage of by those not so Ibrtuiqtle us to have places secured. Many of the store« had platforms built out from tlie second story, on which were seated the proprietor« ami their families and friends; and others, Instead of the goods usually dis played in the windows, had them tilled with iudics and children, w ho presented a bright and pleuslng picture to proiiicuadcra and procession!«. The «'dice arrangements seemed to meet all the requirements, but the officers frequently had a trying time at the Intersection of streets during the pro gress of the parade to keep the surging popu iaee from bearing down or breaking the rope* aud obstructing the line. The previous »docking of the streets by tlic parade was not experienced to so great an extent yesterday a« the day before, as some of the railway companies rail their ears to the route of the parade and then ran them back on the same track, after reversing the position of the horses. Others jumped the truck at some point, and made connections again after pulling a square over another track or upon the cobbles of side streets. In many cases the intersecting streets aioug the line were choked up for some distance on each side, the block not being relieved until the parade was over. As the procession moved along, many of the characters represented came in for a great deal of humorous criticism, and any thing which looked odd or strange, or any person who had anything about him that could reasonably excite ridicule, a target for the shafts of some portions of the crowd; but there was apparently no malice in the fun or any hard feelings en gendered on the part of the victims. At the close of Uie parade there was the railroad depots and fer ries, for two hours afterwards the street cars had as much as they could do to carry pas sengers to their homes, and at the end of this time the streets did not appear greatly relieved of the throngs which had lined them for hours previously. THE PARADE BRIEFLY DESCRIBED. The police arraogemeBts were much im proved yesterday, so that on North Broad street, the crowds being kept back to the curb and the lines well guarded, every one could sec satisfactorily aud there was no in terference with the cobutcnitarch, which made a magnificent spectacle on that wide and densely crowded street. The head of the line, led by ChicfMarsha I Walter G. Wilson, started southward from Uolumtiia uveuue promptly at 10 o'clock, Chai: mini James i'ollock following in an open tiurouehe. At 10.15 o'clock the head of the line pussud Broad and Poplar streets, where the roadway broadens, and it was moving southward, with occasional halts, for about four hours. The head oi the line having passed over the entire route, reappeared at Broad and Poplar streets, moving poith ward on the countermarch at about 1.15 o'clock, and at that time and place met the liead of the Eighth division—the brick layers—who had just started Into line. The head of the procession reached the termina tion of the route about 1.80 o'clock, thus occupying about three hours and a half, in cluding halts, iu traversing the entire dis tance of some six miles. Tho columns steadily moved past each other on North Broad street for over an hour. It was at 2 o'clock that the termination of thelusidivi sion passed out of Poplar 'Street to take its place in tiie line,and at that time the head ot the Third division, the cracker and biscuit Imkers, had JusU reached there on the northern countermarch. It wus nearly 4.80 o'clock when the end ol the line, in rather broken and straggling condition, reached Columbia avenue, over six hours alter the head had left there, and long before that time the tired spectators had been leaving Broad street iu large numbers, so that the crowd was much thinned ont. The procession altogether was probably niuc or ten miles long. wide made usual rush for the a TI1E MYSTIC PAGEANT. Soon after twilight crowds of ix*ople were to lie wen hurrying to obtain eligible |H»»i tions upon Hie route lai«l down lor tlie pro cession of the Mystic Tableaux Association. Being the first representation of such nn affair in this city there was more thau ordi nary curiositv evinced by citizci.fi and strungeis alike to view what had been pic ture«! to them as a most dazzling pageant. Tlie sidewalks, steps and windows of resi dences and store«, together with tlie numerous stands erected from which to view tlie different displays of the week were they were packe l with eager er», who patiently waited for hours tiie up pr a ll of the pnxTssion. Delay was oc casioned by tin* preparations necessary lor starting tiie float« from the rendezvous. At a dwelling house on Broad street below Ox ford, the young men w ho were to assume characters in tiie several tableaux assent »»led and considerable time elapsed In getting cverytl.ing in readimss to move, it not until well on to 10 o'clock tliut the lino was ionned, and yet tlie crowds, wliich were greater than during tlie day, seemed to take matters good liumorcdly, as though deter mined to see all that was l«> be seen. The U'spunglrd structures upon the floats, t« - gelhcr with the gay costumes worn by Uic participants, were of dazzling brilliancy when the bright, sharp rays of the calcium and colored light« were turned upon them.

For 10 years there* lias not been an honest election in the district. The men who owned the inspectors, body and soul, were responsible. These men were John J. O'Brien and Jacob M. Patterson, Jr. You as a speaker at political meetings must be aware how frequently shakers* statements arc taken from newspaper ports. I referred to the report of Judge Btecklcr's speech, and was careful to read it. at the meeting. * I have seen this morning Judge Sleekier and called his attention to your letter to me and he stated he was ready to substantiate all he wild upon that occasion. I did say it was your district, mcuiiing that the Assembly district referred to was within the Southern District of New York, of w hich you arc the United States District Attorney. Messrs. Patterson and O'Brien are certainly reputed political friends—at least you are all active members of tlie same party. Yours, very truly, John O'Byrne. rc PROOF IN ABUNDANCE.

These superfluous v«»tes had to be excluded, and of course the benefit Of the doubt wus given to the candidate» who were friends of tlie U- publican bosses of the district. It was from here also that the four in dicted iuspectors of election hail. They are charged with a violation of the Election law in preventing 15 legal voters f eising their right to the franchise, ou the ground that others had voted in their names. Here also are affidavits showing that iu this Assembly (Eighth) district, where Messrs. O'Brien and L'attcisou arc llit* l«x:al Repub lican leaders, the tissue ballot frau«l had been practice«!. When tissue ballots couhl not b.; safely used double sets were substi tuted. Other sbnilur affidavits arc in our hands. These things arc all going to be made tho subject of a judicial inquiry."
