Opening Argument in the star Route
Cases--An Appeal for an Honest Verdict
—How Jurymen May be Bribed l>y Pnl>
li«* Clamor.
Washixgton, Sept. 5. — The criminal j
court room was crowded this morning with
an audience anxious to hear Col. Inger-
BolPs address to the jury in the star ?onte
case?. The colonel began his argument
with an expressed desire that the jury
should understand him. He was as much
opposed to official corruption as any man
in the world. The taxes were paid by la
bor and industry, and they should be dis
bursed by integrity, and a man that was
untrue to his official oath, to the position
that the people honored him with, ought
to be punished. He had not one word to
say in defense of any man who he believed
had robbed the treasury. He wanted the
jury to understand that he was not defend
ing nor excusing, nor endearvoring to pal
liate the slightest dishonesty in any public
The ;jnry had been told the people of the
United States were a demoralized people,
that the tide of dishonesty was rising ready
to sweep from one shore of the country to
the other. It had been appealed to find
innocent men guilty, in order that this
tide might successfully be resisted. It
had been told that it was necessary to make
an example of somebody in order that the
country might take the road to honesty.
The country hvd been in war. but he de
nied that the war had demoralized the peo
ple. Whoever fought for the right did not
demoralize himself: he enonbied him
self, and the war through which the coun
try had passed had been a reformation, not
a demoralization. The war was a period
of moral enthusiasm, during which
the people had become
a thousand times . grander
and nobler than they had ever been before.
When we shook the shackles off four mil
lion people it did not demoralize us.
When we changed the hut of the slave
into the castle of the freeman.it did not de
moralize us. The jury had been told that
the United States was distinguished among
the nations of the world only for corrup
tion. It made no difference to him that
it was quoted from a Republi
can senator: he denied it. He
had always supposed the people
of America were distinguished for
free schools, for free speech, for just laws,
not for corruption. The jury was appeal
ed to also to become corrupt. He never
•would try to put o stain on the forehead of
his country in order that he might
consign some honest men to the peni
tentiary. The only mercy his
clients asked of the jury was the mercy of
an honest verdict according to the evi
dence and according to law. That was all
they asked what they expected. An hon
est verdict was a. verdict in accordance
with the evidence. Whoever found a ver
dict to please power, whoever violated bis
conscience that ha might be in accord or
supposed accord with an adrnsnistration
organ, was bribed. Whoever found a ver
dict that it might increase his reputation,
was bribed. Whoever found a verdict
for fear he would lose bis reputation, was
bribed. Whoever bent to public demands
or bowed before the press, was bribed. Fear,
prejudice, malice, the love of approbation.
bribed a thousand where gold bribed one.
An honest verdict was the result not of fear
but of courage; not of prejudice but of
candor, and above all it was the result of
love of justice. Then turning to the ex
amination he argued that overt acts charg
ed must be proved exactly as alleged, no
matter whether the description was unnec
essary or not.

Heavy Suit Against the Topeka, Saliim &
West-crn Company— Election of Directors
— Local Notes.
Boston, Sept. — The Journal says:
Monday night Deputy Sheriff O'Brien
served an attachment for $250,000 yon the
treasurer of the Topeka, Salina & Western
Railway company, who was on a business
trip to Boston, and also on C. G. Patter
son, at the instance of the Kansas it East
em Construction company, . composed of |
geritlemen identified with the Union Paci
fic and Atcbison, Topeka & Santa Fe Rail
road companies. It appears -: that the
Topeka. Salina & Western railway in 1881
made a contract • ■with the r construction
company to build its road, about 200
miles in length, and in payment therefor
the construction company was to receive
a sufficient amount of bonds and stock
to give it a controlling • interest
in the new road. Recently the Topeka.
Salina & Western railway annulled its con
tract, and made a new one with Patterson,
who advertises ite bond 3 and stocks for '
sale. The suit, which is in the nature of a
bill in equity, prays for a specific perform
ance of the original contract, and that
Patterson may be enjoined from proceed
ing under his contract.

The Cincinnati Grocers Protest Against
Changes in the Tariff on Tlieir Wares'—
Tiio Sugar Duties.
Cincinnati. Sept. ">. — A deputation from
the Grocers' association, of Cincinnati,
consisting of Messrs. James M. Glenn, L.
C. Keevers, James H. Laws and David C.
White, came before the tariff commission
this morning and presented a paper on
the question of the duties on sugar, mo
lasses and rice. The paper advocated a
continuance of the wise and liberal policy
of protection for those staples of the South
and Southwest. It is urged strongly that no
change be made in the duties on these
articles that would afford less protection
than is now extended to them, as the pres
ent tariff gave no more protection
than was actually ncessary to en
courage their production and stimu
late their increase. It expressed
the opinion that the agricultural people of
the Mississippi valley are in warm sym
pathy with the development of those great
Southern interests, because they fully ap
preciated the advantages to be derived from
the establishment of large permanent
home markets for their products. In the
event of any modification of the tariff on
sugar, they suggest that grades Nos. 14, 15
and 16 should not as now be scaled so high
above refining grades as to exclude them,
but that they should be so graded as to al
low their importation. They also recom
mend the use of the polariscope as a test
of grade of sugar. In reply to questions
Mr. Keever stated that the views ex
pressed in this paper were those of the entire
grocery trade of Cincinnati, and that the
association had no connection whatever
with the sugar refining interest. Mr.
Laws stated in reply to question by Mr.
Oliver, that there was no general feeling
in the community, in favor of any radical
changeing the tariff, and that it would be
better to let the tariff remain as it is. than
to have it materially interfered with in
either way.
J. B. Mitchell, of Cincinnati, importer of
dry goods, made some suggestions as to
the rules and classification of merchandise,
and urged that such changes be made in
i the tariff as will simplify the collection of
i duties and relieve the importers and manu
facturers of much annoyance, uncertainty
and actual loss. George R. McKee, of the
Railway River mills. Frankfort, Ky., made
a plea in favor of the hemp
interest. He asked to have the
duty made permanent on •> manilla
and sisnl.Jso as to insure fflir and reliable
prices for the hemp raised in this country.
Geo. Strebly, of this city, manufacturer of
ladies' shoe-, made an argument against
the increase of duties on tanned or fin
ished, kid skins, on tut- ground that the
shoe manufacturers would find their in
terests imperiled on account of the inade
quate supply of finished materials in this
country, and that there would be a neces
sary advance in the price of boots and
shoes to the consumer. It would be far
better to take the present tariff off
of tanned or finished kid and
goat skins, so as to afford
an opportunity to boot and shoe
manufacturers to work up the surplus sole
leather that is now sold in Europe to
the extent of $10,000,000 a year. Ameri
can manufacturers could then make shoes
for Mexico, Central and South America
and the adjoining islands instead of fur
nishing the materials to Great Britain,
France and Germany, and allowing these
countries to supply the markets of the
world. In reply to a question by Mr. Por
ter, Mr. Stribley stated that to-day the best
and cheapest of shoes were made in the
United States. A. B. Daly, representing
the steamboat interest beetween Cin
cinnati and New Orleans, made an
argument against the reduction of
duties on sugar, molasses and
rice that would operate against the pro
duction of those staples in the South, and
consequently against the interests of the
river transportation companies. His com
pany owned ten or eleven palatial steam
ers with a capacity of 1,200 to 1.500 tons
each. They made eight or ten trips each
season, taking up sugar, molasses and rice,
and in return taking down the manufac
tures of the Northwest. This trade would
be ruined by free trade in sugar. He asked
that there should bo no change in the ex
isting tariff. There being no other persons
desiring to present any views, the commis
sion adjourned to meet to-morrow in Lou

Detroit Kecord: The potato crop which

St. Paul. Sept. <:. 1882.
As harvesting is pretty well along, farm
ers find dealers in the interior have had an
opportunity to come to market and they
have availed themselves of the chance very
generally. For the last few days they have
come in quite rapidly, and dealers have had
their hands full to accommodate them. Of
course, most of them calculate upon at
tending the agricultural fairs a day or two.
after making their purchases. The conse
quence is. that dealers . in most lines of
merchandise report large sales, and it is
altogether probable that if the total
amount of sales could be definitely ascer
tained, that the week would prove to be
one of the largest weeks we have ever had
in St. Paul. The grocery houses have been
full of activity and with them it has been
an especially heavy week. The dry goods
trade, which has been less active all the
season than was expected, has >urpised
dealers during the week and has swelled
out into proportions never before equaled
in this city. The season all the time since
the spring opened, has been all wrong.
When in the early spring flannels and other
similar goods should have been in season,
it was too warm for them, and later along
when it should have been warm and suita
ble for lighter fabrics, it was cool, and
consequently unfavorable, and so it has
been all the season, the weather and the
line of goods suitable for sale at the time,
being at sixes and sevens. The consequence
has been that dealers in dry goods have
been somewhat disappointed, not because
they have not had a good solid trade, but
because with the prospects of such an im
mense crop as we are having and as was
promised all along through the season, they
had a right to expect a bigger and more
satisfactory business. It seems to be com
ing now and the fall sales may make up
for the delinquencies of the preceding
months. Boots and shoes and clothing are
also coming up. In short, all that goes to
make up the subject of personal consump
tion and immediate use for people's exis
tence is in very active and increasing de
mand. Drugs, oils and paints are active
and are generally so throughout the year.
The general activity throughout all busi
ness portions of the city gives evidence of
the new vitality injected into all branches
of trade by the generous harvest that seems
to be made certain to the great northwest.
The business of the past week showed an
increased volume as compared with the
week previous. Counter business and the
clearing house transactions furnish evi
dence of this. As yet no great increase in
the amount of eastern exchange is notice
able in the market, and prices remain un
changed. There is a fair demand for cur
rency from the interior principally for
preparing crops for market. As yet very
little money has been realized from ship
ments of grain, and there is no change in*
the policy adopted by the banks to confine
their loans to regular customers offering
good paper. Outside applicants are gen
erally refused, while the banks respond to
all demands for legitimate purposes, es
pecially to merchants for payment of east
ern bills and parties interested in the mar
keting of the crops. The substance of the
whole matter it that the banks have plenty
of money, and every demand by good and
responsible parties will find no trouble in
being accommodated.
The fruit market, which has been very active
ail the season, has l>een still more so during the
past week. None but the best quality of fruit is
required, and much of this lias to be repacked.

may be taken as a fair indication of what it was
