men, Duke and Robinson, at West and Chris- i
topher streets, on Oct. 25th. He describes the 1

lieves him to be the victim of foul play. The

THE BRIBERY CASE.
He was Friendly to Dorsey and
Ingersoll.
What a Detective Communi
cated to Col. Ingersoll.
SOME POINTED QUESTIONS ASKED
OF THE WITNESS,
A “Systamatic Attempt to Smirch the
Government.”
THE HEARING RESUMED.
Washington, Nov. 2.—In the Payee bribe
ry case today juror Brown was recalled for
ferther cross-examination by the ^defence but
nothing material was bronglit out.
George Miller, a detective of the District
police ,feree was next called. Had known
Paine since the latter part of September. Had
heard of Paynes connection with the jury bri
bery affair and met Pavne by appointment. On
the following Sunday, he took Payne to Col
jnel Ingersoll’s house. He had talked with
Mayor Richards before taking Payne there.
The witness had not reported these facts to any
person connected withe department of justice
or the District Governaient. He reported
them to Colonel Ingersoll, because he was per
sonally friendly to General Dorsey and
Colonel Ingerscll had aever received
any reward for his services. The witness ac
knowledged be had given information from
day to day to the defeece duriag the progress
of the 8t»r ro ite trial, never gave any such in
formation to the prosocution.
The witness was then cross-examined by the
defense. He said |the object of his getting
Foote’s affidavit was to secure Fail’s arrest.
Upon being questioned relative to the letter
from Foote demanding S1000 for his affidavit,
the witness said that Payne gave him the let
ter and aBked him to tell him the contents.
The witness gave the letter to Dorsey. Ingui
soli advised Payne not to make the affidavit
because it woald prove him to be as bad as
otheis and would send him to the penitentiary.
The wituess was asked if he did not under
stand from the Star route defendant that it
was hoped by this investigation to cast discred
it upon the department of justice. He said re
lnctantly “No only on Falls and those coa
nected with this matter.’’
Mr. Davis—What matter?
Witness—The bribery of juror Brown.
Mr. Davis—Was it not believed that Brew
ster Cameron will be invovled?
Witness—Yes, Fall and Brewester Cameron.
In answer to a qaestiou from the coart as to
the releva> cy of tnese questions, Davis said he
was trying to established the connection be
tween the witnes and Colonel Ingersoll. One
of the chief counsel for the Star route defend
ants. He would show that these persons had
engaged in a systematic attempt to smirch the
department of justice, and that as the part and
parcel of the matter and to that end the affida
vit of Foote, a fugitive from justice been ob
tained for him.
A. B. Williams was recalled and confirmed
the statement that he had informed (Miller)
that he was in communication with the assist
ant district attorney Moore.

WASHINGTON.
A Recommendation.
Washington, Nov. 2. — Third Auditor
Keigbtley in his annual report to Secretary
of the Treasury recommends such a change of
legislation as will provide for the authentica
tion of the transcripts from the records of the
department by officers having custody of the
files from which said transcripts are made.
The New Gold Certificates.
The Treasury Department is goading the
bureau of engraving and printing with orders,
with a view to the speedy completion of the
work on the new series of gold certificates not
beariog the autograph ef Assistant Treasurer
Action. It is believed that they will be ready
for issae next week, when the large orders for
small denominations from the West and Sooth
will be filled. Mr. Acton is still grindidg away
as though the welfare of the republic depend
ed upon his perseverance.
The Treasury Surplus.
The receipts at the Treasury continue so
large that the surplus is growing. It was sup
posed that the bond calls, iu addition to the
heavy drafts ou account of appropriations,
would reduce it, but the receipts have gained
so much more rapidly thau the disbursements
that the avnilable surplus is $10,000,000 larger
now than it was last month.
Still Another Fraud.
Postmaster General Howe has declared
Frank E. Vail, doing business ot 1227 Market
street, Philadelphia, and at 1293 Broadway,

and in half a dozen other cities under various
other aliases, v fraud in selling bogus jewelry,
aud has directed that no money orders or re
gistered letters be delivered to him or his
aliases.
Must Take the Consequences.
Assistant Secretary Joslyn says that Inspec
tor Pollock, in publishing his report iu the

Agent McGillicuddy of the Pine Ridge agency,
has shown the utmost disrespect for nis
superior, and must not complain of the con
sequences.

THAT KENTUCKY MOB.
Further Particulars Concerning
the Alfair.
BOTH SIDES OP THE STORY.
Lexington, Ky., Nov. 2.—The steamboat
Granite State, which carried the prisoners
Neal and Crafts and the soldiers from Catletts
burgh, Ky., made no landing until reaching
Maysville, where the prisoners were safely
transferred. Two soldiers and a roustabout
were slightly wounded. There are many bul
let marks in the boat.
Mr. Phister, clerk of the Granite State, says
Major Allen engaged their steamer Tuesday
night to convey the prisoners and troops to
Maysville, but this was kept secret, even from
the other boat officers. Wishing to avoid col
lision with a mob, they telegraphed to Major
Allen that they woald be at Catlettsburgh at
11.30, but he failed to reach there till after
noon. He thinks if they could have arrived
promptly the whole trouble would have been
avoided.
Wb6n the boat came to Catlettsburgh there
were ominous signs of disturbance. Promi
nent men at that place assured Capt. Kirker
that the boat would be attacked! A large
shipment of cattle was kept off for fear of dis
aster. A committee from the Ashland mob
waited on Major Allen and demanded the pris
oners The demand was of course refused,
and the committee warned Major Allen that
theprisoners would be taken.
When the boat left Catlettsburgh the mob
took the train, wbiah consisted of an engine,
passenger car and four flat cars. The train
was filled with men, and as the road runs near
the river at the start, the men oould be heard
hallooing and could be seen firing at the boat,
but the distance was too great for injury.
When Ashland was reached the ferry boat
was seen, apparently filled with belligerent
people. The wharf boat was also full of men,
and the banks were lined with people. The
pilot blew two whistles as if to land, but with
no intention of landing. This was a ruse to
get away from the ferry boat. When the lat
ter saw that the Granite State was steaming
by, four whistles were sounded by the ferry
boat to get the Granite State to land. No at
t-ntion was paid to it, and then firing began.
Two soldiers were placed in. the pilot bouse to
keep the pilots at their post. Shots were fired
at the Granite State, both from the wharf boat
ane from me> on the bank. Many of ihese
were aimed at the pilot house, and six balls
struck the pilot house.
Another account of the affair says: Twenty
five men and boys, who were partly intoxicat
ed, seized an engine and car and went on to
Cattlesburg, against the advice of sober men,
who last night gave up all hope of getting the
prisoners from the military. When they
reached Cattlesburg they made no effort to
capture the prisoners, who were safely placed
on board the steamer Granite State at 3 o’clock
p. m. The crowd then hastened back to Ash
land, and about tweuty of them went to a fer
ryboat aud by the use of pistols compelled the
captain to put out to intercept the Granite
State. Their attitude was so ridiculous and
their course so hopeless that the affair would
have been a farce but for the reckless dis
charge of a revolver iu the bands of one of the
boys on the ferryboat. It was answered at
once by a volley from the soldiers. The balls
pierced the boiler of the ferry and escaping
steam disabled them. By this time a great
crowd had gathered on the banks of the river
and in the houses. The soldiers turned their
guns on them aud fired without provocation.
Here the mischief was done Only three were
wounded on the ferry boat, while all the others
on the casualty list were of the peaceable peo
ple en the shore. The following is a list of the
killed: George Keener, James McDonald,
Col. Reppert, and an infant in its mother’s
arms. Those serionslv wounded are John
Baugh, Charles Balinger, Willie Serey, Will
Springer, Mrs. Serey, Graham Randali and
Robert Pritchard.
The following are slightly wounded: Martin
Dunlap, Alexander Harris, John Gallagher,
Julius 8ommers, Thomas Beer, Mrs. B. But
ler, A. H. Dickson, Thomas Demerara, N. E.
Ball, Dr. Hills, Martin Geer, Robert Eowther
and J. W. House. Col. Reppert was a highly
respected citizen 70 yearB old.
Mrs. Butler was a quarter of a mile away at

CIVIL SERVICE REFORM.
The Meeting at Woodford's Last Evening
The Civil Service Reform Association held
an adjourned meeting at Lewis Hall, Deering,
last evening,President E. H. Elwell presiding.
The committee on constitution and by-laws
reported a constitution to govern the associa
tion, which was accepted and adopted.
It is, with a few verbal changes, the same as
that adopted by the New York Association,
and published in the Pntnam pamphlet, enti
tled “Purposes of the Civil Service Reform
Association.”
A committee of three was appointed to se
lect the board of officers prov d by the con
stitution.
Mr. Blackstone stated that he bad corres'
ponded with the New York and Cambridge
associations, and a letter was read from the
president of the New York Association, and
another from a member of the same associa
tion by President Elwell.
An address was delivered by Mr. Ridlon,
which was listened to with marked attention,
of which the following is a digest:
ADDRESS OF UK. RIDLON.
This is not a new question. More than fifty
years ago Daniel Webster denounced the evils
of the spoils system. Often since have politi
cal parties passed high sounding resolutions on
the same subject, only to be forgotten as soon
as election was over. Our first Congress main
tain ed that the constitution gave no right or
power of removal to the President. Others
maintained that the power was implied and
that the President might remove employes for
cause. By a small majority Cougress decided
in favor of the existence of the power of re
moval. granting it in a case of clear necessity.
Under Jefferson, probabl} less than twenty re
movals were made, but eveu these excited so
much criticism that he publicly explained the
reasons of bis action in each case. The spoils
Bystem came in with Jackson. “To the victor
belong the spoils” was then first promulgated.
He removed fiom office more than 2,000. And
since that day, with perhaps two exceptions,
tbe government has been run on the spoils
sy-tem, President Arthur's included. The
offices have been distributed as so many prizes,
among those who belong to the successful par
ty. The result is to make our elections a sel
fish scramble for office. It has been largely
resnonsible for the corruption and rascality of
our modern politics. It has brought unscrn
ious men to the front and kept the best men .in
the rear. Bribery is not nucomn. in, and po
litical assessments are tbe direct re., nit of the
spoils system. Cengressmen—I do n ' mean
those from Maine—claim the right to distrib
ute the offices among their contlitueuts. When
denied, they resign and go home to be endors
ed. Uuder the present system, nearly 100,000
offices have to be distributed among the faitti
ful whenever a new administration comes in
pwci. jLuuusmuus swarm io vv asniLgiou,
claiming an appointment on the ground of
party fealty. The time of the President is
wasted for months in finding places for these
political beggars. Public sentiment demands
a reform. Stalwartism, Bourbonism, Bor any
other ism can long resist the tide of public
opinion.
How shall the spoils syBtem be met and over
come? We answer, by law. We must look to
our lawyers for proper legislation to remove
this evil. Already steps have been taken. Two
bills are now pending in Congress—the Pen
dleton and the Dawes bill—either of which, if
passed, would afford relief. Neither of these
bills are likely to become law, for the senti
ment ol the present Congress is against them.
Not till public sentiment shall demand legisla
tion on this subject can we hope for reform.
Agitation, discussion and organization are the
only meaus we have of reaching Congress on
this subject. For these reasons you have as
sembled to night. We welcome recruits from
all parties. Let us do our part in common
with other associations, to place our civil ser
vice on a higher and better foundation.
The thanks of the association was tendered
to Mr. Ridlon for M!s admirable address.
Interesting remarks in reference to civil ser
vice reform were made by President Elwell.)
The subject for discussion next meeting will
be the Pendleton and Dawes bills. Mr. El
well was invited to open the discussion, and
the meeting then adjourned to Thursday,
Nov. lfltb,
BOARD OF TRADE.
Admiral Wyman’s Letter Referred to a
Committee or Report.
At the monthly meetlnj^f the managers Of
the Board of Trade, held yesterday morning,
the reply of Admiral Wyman, chairman of the
Light House Board,to the remonstrance recent
ly sent from this city against the proposed chan
ges in the light houses on this coast, was brief
ly considered.
The points made by the Department not be
ing, in the opinion of the members, sufficient
to justify the great risks involved, on motion
of Hon. Israel Washburn, the cotmunication
of Admiral Wyman was referred to a commit
tee, consisting of Capts. Washington Ryan, J.
S. Winslow and John W Deering, with in
structions to report to the Board upon various
points claimed by the Department in justifica
tion of the proposed changes.
Mr. Rich, the secretary, stated that he had
received a letter from Capt. William Flowers,
of Bangor, saying that the Bangor Board of
Trade had sent a remonstrance against the
change of lights to the Light House Board,
signed by 160 of the best and largest business
houses and firms of that city. There is a uni
versal and deep indignation throughout the
seaboard towns of the State that such a radical
and hazardous change should be attempted
without a conference with practical nautical
men, familiar with the needs of this coast, not
ouly for its coastwise trade, but for the foreign
•ommerce coming on to the New England
coast.
MARINE MISHAP.
A Vessel Runs on a Rock In the River
and Springs Aleak.
The Biddeford Times says: Last Sunday
evening as the echooner Sarah Purves, from
New York, was being hauled up to the Fac
tory Island wharf, she struck a rock on the
bottom of the river through which the water
began rapidly to enter. The Sarah Purves is a
schooner of large dimensions, is owned by a
firm in New York,and is commanded by Capt.
Francis Raymond. She is a very staunch
built vessel and on her arrival here was in
sound and thorough condition. The part
where she struck is built of white and live
oak. The force of the cencussion caused these
timbers to bend inward to a considerable ex
tent. As they did not break off but fell back
into position again, the gap was partially
closed and the entrance of water lessened.
The vessel was laden with moulding sand
which she was chartered to bring from Alba
N. Y., to the Water Power Company here. A
portion of this cargo will be lost. Since the
time of the accident the pumps have had to be
kept going day and night in order to keep the
vessel free from water and . avert the danger of
sinking. It is expected that the cargo will all
be got out by .to-morrow aud the vessel will
then proceed to Portland for examination and
repairs. The rock on which the vessel struck
lies at the bottom of the river quite near the
wharf, It has been examined and is said to
be three feet in height and of a round form. It
is Bituated in a dangerous position for vessels
of heavy burthen, and ought to be removed in
order to prevent a recurreuce of suoh accidents
as the present one.
The Good Templars.
The Lewiston Journal says: The Grand
Secretary informs us that work for the order is
being successfully pushed in various parts of
the State, by the rebuilding of old lodges and
the institution of new ones, to make good the
customary annual losses by surrender of char
tor, etc. It is hoped to make a decided gain
in the State prior to the next annual session of
the Grand Lodge in Lewiston in April. J. H.
Hamilton will take the field at once, organiz
ing eastern Washington county, Rev. J. H.
Taylor in Hancock, and B. C. Torsey in vari
ous places as needed. Mrs. Estes is still at
work in Aroostook, where she has instituted
five lodges and half a dozen Juvenile Temples.
Her last lodge was Mednxnekeag, at Monti
cello, Oct. 26th. H. W. Dennett instituted
Standard Lodge, 133, at Phipsburg, last week.
T. J. Carle will do some work iu York. H.
C. Munson in Oxford, and other workers will
be in the field as fast as arrangements can be
made. *
Waldo District Lodge of Good Templars will
meet in quarterly session at Freedom, Wednes
day, Nov. 15th. Three new lodges have lately
been organized in that county, viz: Undine,
at Prospect, Hillsdale at Unity, and Haven at
Troy, making twenty-two live lodges in Waldo,
with about 1,200 members.
