CUSTOM-HOUSE NOTES.

Tomanderson'd here, sure enough, now, having
put in an appearance on Tuesday morning with
Mr. Oantt, of St. Landry, and went immediately
to a private house, from where they afterwards
vislted J. Madison Wells, not at his office in the
Ouutom-House, but
AT Ills PRI\IATIF 'ROO
on Oustombouse street.
This was thought perhaps to be the best plan
to secure an undisturbed tr -ft..·r, the Oustom.
House being rather too public.
They were in coneultation early in the morning,
and by the time the "oiBoe houre" began at the
Granite Building the prominent arrivals, with the
hote above stated, were talked of, and later in
the morning
THE "OUTS" Wlal IN OOUnOU,
In groups of from four to ia baker's dozen, won
dering if the atack on the Odlleotor was to be
reopened, or whether the trip to the Iigolets, (?)
made by Wells, had resulted in a general com
promise and the formation of a new mutual ad
miration society by the es-Returning Board
ohlefs and the Collector.
Some thought that the "cruel war was over"
while others considered it certain that Tomso
dereon's thirst for Custom-Honse scalps had not
ceased in the least. The same parties had it too
that he was to leave for the North on Wednes
day.
A.rIng the mreing Tomanderson, unecoom
pO ed by his fried Gantt, paid a friendly visit
,a.a Collector
AT HIN HOTEL,
1td had quite a lengthy chat, taking in various
questlons, including patronage, but he did not
make any demands. Nor is it likely that he will,
as he, with others, has ascettained that the Col
lector is supported in the most substantial man
ner by both the Seoretary of the Treasury and
the President.
The "outb" might as well glee up the fight
now and seek some legitimate employment, as
their chiefs have lost the battle, and neither
Tomanderson, Gantt, Wells, Kellogg, Morey or
any of the rest can

Wton, no matter how many letters are written to
Washington with complaints; nor will he be
affsoted by personal visits to the Capital by those
representing the Liberal-Oonervative press,
who seek influence and, rumor has it, position.
The visit referred to was, so CaOtom-House
rumor says, made in the personal interest of the
LIberal-Conservative press of this city, and before
the gentleman had hardly time to get settled
.down Barr, the agent of the New York Asso
dlated Press, had him
LUNOtPIROG WITH THE PRESIDENT,
Ibtowing that came some wild prlognostia
the BSureme Bench vacancy, the
not being sent to the Senate by
Iht' the civil service reform rules
would be applied if the Ooileetor was not con
Armed, ete., and how Deputy Ohamplin would
ameseed the Collector, and all thaete rt ofstuff, all
of which at the time was quoted by the DmeroATr
as emtrmelmy wild, and sure enough it has now
urasplred that the "prognostlestlons" were more
thata wild, and the Returning Board raid with the
prognostioationo

as rerstary Sherman and President HItye have
made up their minds to u.stais Collector King
against any and all combinations, cliques and
Mr. They are satisfied, as was stated in yes
's DEotenrAT, with the course pursued by
the rector, and will support him.
That being a rather broad assertion, it is only
aeessary to add that the writer has meen a letter
of recent date, from Hoeretary Sherman to a gen
tleman in this city, announcing the determination
named in words too explioit to be misunderstood,
and commending the uolloetor's course In the
bIhest and most flattering terms, both for him
and the President, and informing the Collec
tor that he need have no fears as to his appoint
amtat, as they had been carefully scrutinized,
WERE EMINENTLY VATI.FACTORT
to the President as well as the Seoretary.
From other sources it is learned that, in some
mysterious way the Preeld'ent and lSeoretary
Sherman have been fully advised from day to
day of the progress of the raid, and by different
parties; and these reports coorrouora tug letters
written by the Collector himself, it was perfectly
clear to the Administration that the raid and the
row kicked up was for the purpose of monopollaz
ing CuOnstom-House patronage without benefting
the service or the g ,vetrnmunt, and for that rea
son perhaps the Administration put
ITS NUMBER FICTILN IiROOAN
on the raid and the raiders, and quietly squelched
both at the same time.
Winformation from Washington, by the grapt
vine, is to the effect that alter Mr. Gantt threat
ened some time ago to withdraw from thu, eol
lector's bond, that ollicid addressed the depeot
ment a letter r, 1it tillig that he might be p -r
mitted to s:r.tgtnon his bond, or give a now one
altogether, but Lic tiocretary of the lreasury did
not see any n ccaeity for such a Course, and ae
ootdingly inftutted a genthman that the Col
lector's twnmd "was good enough as it was."
All this will be sad news to Kellogg's list of

have hi, men in positions. He cannot let himself
down very gracefully, however, and to recede
from his former p sition, he will receive as his
reward of merit the curses of those whom he

THE RTnEET CARS.
Admlnistratr Oavrnae is preparing a com
runication to be addressed to the New
Orleans City Rdilroad Company, requiring
that the Canal street trains shall stop at
such points along their line mentioned
in the placards posted in the carn, without
the necessity of being hailed or the conductor
being informed by passengers to do so. It seems
that the Administrator himself had been inoon
venienoed on several ocoasions by the direlictions
of the company in complying wi b the rules they
have established themselves. When President
Win z has been appliedto for a remedy he has
LAID TlE BLAME
on the conductors, who, he says, ate instructed
to stop at the intersection of Canal street with
Bampart, Claiborne, Galvez and other streets.
The conductors, on the other hand, tell a differ.
ent story, and it is with a view of settling the
question definitely that the communlc.ition of
Mr. Oavanao will be addressed to President
Wintz.
This matter has suggested to the same Ad
ministrator the propriety of inquiring into the
charters and contracts or all the street railroad
oompanies, with a view to seeing that they are
run in the interests of the people, and not en.
tirely for the benefit of the corporations owning
them.
TO POUND DRIVERS.
Administrator Diamond publishes a notice in
this morning's DEIMOCRAT addressed to the cow
catchers, instructing them that they must not
drive animals to the pound which gras on the
greens in the suburbs, but only such as roam at
large op the thoroughfares. This order is in ac
cordan6e with the views of a majority, at least,
of the members of the Council who appreciate the
usefulness and necessity of cows in all communt
ties.
AT THE COUNCIL, MEETINO(
yesterday very little outside of routine business
was done. The report of the committee ap.
pointed to inquire into the accounts of Mr. Piper,
collector during Mr. Cavansc's administration of
tite wharves and landings, male a report entirely
favorable to Mr. 'Piper, which was adopted by
the Council. Whereupon Mr. Cavanac offered a
resolution authorizing the oomrmittee to fnrther
investigatethe charges o.ntained :n the "Sweeney
card" by inquiring into the manuer in which
THE LANDINGi DUES
were collected during the preceding administra
tion.
When the question came up of the encroach.
ments of the Pnoochartrain Railway on ENysian
Fie de street, Mayor Pilebury stated to the Coun
cil that
IT WAS SHAMEFUL
how the company had treated the street. He had
investigated the matter himself, and thought all
the Council had to do was to instruct the proper
authority to notify the railroad company that
they must putt ho street in a condition to meet
the convenience of the pub ic and remove all ob
structions which they had put or contemplaterd
to pult upon it, other .ist the City Attorney should
proceed legally against th, company.

WAUHING OFF NTAIMPS.
A New- way to ' urs, A Dishoeest Penny
Out of Waste Paper.
Yesterday altern on, shortly before 2 o'clock,
DRputy Marshals Steele and 'Michel arrested
Lewis Davis, aged about forty tears. The
charge was selling and disposing of about 2000
canceled United States Internal Revenue Stamps
of two cents' denomination.
The prisoner stated that;f it was any Offense
he was guilty, but he was informed by Special
Agent D. Hutchinson that it was not a crime.
When cautioned by the Commissioner that he
need not criminate himself, he said then that he
was not gumilty.
Special Ilternal Revenue Agent Tompkins was
called to the stand. He testified that the prisoner
had sold him the stamps now in court. Davis is
a waste paper dealer, an I these stamps were
taken off old b:oke and papers. The stamps
show that they were washed off. Saw Davis yes
terday and I paid $15 50 for the stamps, and if
they were genuine the 2000 are worth two cents
each here. The reason he worked up this case
wae this: We received letters from the depart
ment that this thing was going on here, and that
stamps used had been disposed of, and I came
down to ferret it out.
C. C. Tracey, cashier of the Internal Revenue,
was next sworn, who said he c uld not swear all
the s'amps were not legal; some had certainly
been canceled.
Daniel Hutchinson, next sworn, said that Davis
came to him cue d ,y and witness told him all
stamps never used could be redeemed, but never
said illegal stamps could be used. Davis gave
witness uncanceled stamps but no canceled ones.
Commissioner Southworth said the testimony
was very damaging. The see ion 3429 of the
Revised Statutts provides that if any person
sh ll have in his possesein wabhed stamps, such
person shall be fined $1000, or be sentenced to
five years' imprisonment, or both, and the burden
of proof is on the person to account for the pres
ence of the stamps.
Tt e bond was fixed at $20.000, and the prisoner
remanded to toe Parish Prison, failing to find a
surety.
Davis is a waste'paper dealer on Peters street,
and it is alleged he has f r come time past been
in the habit of buying no old receipt books and
eauci led checks, and washing tnererrm the can
e, led stamps and then renrovine the iuk marks.
Those I ffered in evideuce were tied up in little
,quare bundles of 100. ant it w's with the utmost
dificulty that it could be de'ected they had ever
been need were it not for tLe absence of the mu
ci.age on the back.

A STEP TO INTRODUICE VIRIU DIRECT
FROM THE COW.
Opening of Dr. de Zayaa' Establlishsnent
on Careondelet treet.
For some time past-since the reorganization
of our State government-Dr. de Zayse, a dis.
tinguished Cnban physician who has resided in
this city for several years, has been endeavoring
to Introduce among ut vaooination
DIRECT FROM THR COW.
To that effect Dr. de Zsyas addressed a lengthy
communication to the Board of Health, setting
forth the necessity of such an institution here,
and laying before that body a plan to carry out
his proposition. The plan, involving an outlay of
six thousand dollars per annum, although it met
with the favorable c nsideration of the board,
could not be adopted on account of the expense.
Undaunted, Dr. de Zayas, who is a gentleman of
means, determined to make the experiment at
his own expense and with no object of gain, but
purely from humanitarian motives, and his es
tablishment at No. 1 Oarondelet street is now in
full operation.
On la nrday last a large number of persons
visited his office, including many professional
men, to whom he exhibited the tibde o(ljternllti
of vaccinating direct from the cow, of w'hich he
has made a study for niany years. It is simple
in the extreme, ani for the benefit of those of
our readers who do not belong to the profession,
(who, of course, know all about it). we shall en
deavor to explain the process. It requires iLe
possession of
\ T \(T('INATED HEIFRi,
which in Europe costs $4000. and in New York is
valued at (1(1,000, anti in order that the vaccine
v ru" shall be maintained fresh and vigorous it
tnas to be constantly transmitted from one animal
to another. the conditions required being that
that the heifer shalh be from eight to fourteen
months of age, experience hav ng taught soei-n
taiste and medical men that at this period of the
life of the animal it cannot communicate disease
to the human body , that the virus is In its great
est state of intensity after the fourth day of the
vaccination and until the seventh. Under the
ironmestanees it will be readily seen how
LAiORIIOCl AND hXtI'ENiITE
must be the task of keeping on hand vaccinated
animals.
hbe animal exhibited by Dr. de Zayvs on Batur
day was a heifer ten or twelve months old (laid
on an operating table specially arranged for the
purpose), with seventy vaccine pustules, fully de
veloped, above the udder, from which he demon
strated the process of transmitting the virui to
the human body,,sand its preservation It glass
tubes in its liquid form. We need not dwell upon
the objections to vaccination
FROM AIRM TO ARaI,
owing to the terrible danger of transmitting with
the virus some constitutional disease from one
person to the other, the truth of which Is uni
versally admitted.
Our purpose is to give to the public Dr. de
Zavas' reasons for the necessity of doing away
with all forms of vacoone virus, except that which
is communicated direct from the cow or from the
diminutive glass tubes in which it is confined in
its liquid form, and by way of preface we will say
that he maintains .thes it requites the entire
inooulating liquid of one postule from the cow to
act as a positive preventive against small-pox.
We can do no better than quote from the com
munieation of Dr. de Zayas to the Board of
Health to convey his doctrine and that of thi,
most eminent physicians of the old and neW'
worlds.
The preventive virtue of the vacoine matter,
says Dr. de Zayas, is absolute in the case of the
greater number of those vaccinated, and temno
rary in that of the smaller number. Even
among this latter class, it is almost absointe
until the age of adolescence.
timall.pex rarely attaoes those who are v iin
ated before the age of ten or twelve year. ti is
from this age until 80 or 35 that persons
ARE MOffT EXPOSED
to the contagion.
In addition to its preventive virtue the val'cin.

reach of science for distinguishing those who

from those who are so only in a degree more or
less prow unoned. Statistics indicate for this lat
ter class a proportion.
Dr. de Zavas intruodces besides, other propo
si ions, whth, hý,w ver, are addressed more per
ticularlv to the Dedical profosei )n. He aided, in
eonversation with us, that according to ita'ti tics
the propnrtion of those permanently prttected
by direct vaccina'ion is abu 91 per cent, whilih,
aa compared with other methods, shose a vast
differeuce in favor of the direct system.
Our special interest in Dr. de Z cyas' vaccine in.
stitutlo- is, we wish our readers to clearly under
s'and, not due to a desire of attributing to him
any invention or new discovery, but to b ing the
system prominently befre the public, and
lIVE DUE (REDIT
to the eminent physician who has. regardless of
the griat expense and labor which it has en
tailed upon him, introduced it among us. For
six o- seven years small pox has been alarming.
ly prevalent among us, and during the past few
monthA (until recently) had acquit-ed the propor
tiens of an epidemic. Any effrt to put a check
to the loathsome and fearful malady, all of our
readers will agree with us, should be oommendd
and enoouraged..
In h:s sommunioation to the Board of Health,
Dr. de Zrysa speaks as follows:
"If then vaccine matter, that precious gift
with which Jenner has endowed humanity, has
diminished the number,of the blind, preserved
beauty, prolonged the mean term of life and
contributed powerfully towards the increase of
population, what is there strange in the welcome
and favor *bich have been accorded to it by all
civilized peoples?"
We can find no better expressions to close our
reference to h,7 instilution of Dr. de Zayas,
which we hope sincerely will become a permanent
one among us.
THE LOG CRUSADE.
The Marshal has received a letter from his
deputy, J. J. Gainey, dated Orange, Texas, stating
that he had just arrived at that point after sta
tioning deputies along the Sabine river at differ
ent points, each being furnished with two keep
ers and a guide and necessary horses to enable
them to get over the work more rapidly. The
ground each has to hunt is about twelve miles
square.
The deputy states that the timber to be seized
extends to Cameron and Vernon parishes, (seven
thousand will cover the number). with about two
thousand railroad ties. Very little was found on
the Louisiana shore, but a great amount was run
up the bayous on the Texas side.
Some question has been raised about the Mar
shal's right to seize logs on the Texas shore of
t'ie SabinA river, as it was not known whether
his jurisdiction extended there.
The following dispatch was received by Col.
Wharton:
ORANOE, Tex, Aug. -.-f-an seizure be made
of logs on T xas shore of Sabine. There is a
large number of railroa 1ties cat fr m govern
ment land. Will I seize them also?
GAI Ez".
The question was submitted to the United
Btates District Attorney, whohas at as yet given
an opinion.
It appears before Texas was admitted to the
Union the boundary line was the Texas shore of
the Sabine river, and Louisiana'sd urisdiction ran
up to that point. If the cession did not change
this the Marshal would have control over the
logs on the Texas shore. If the boundary be
tween the States is the middle of the river he
would not.
MItW. GAINER A£GAIN IN COUItT.
A'New Suit Institutel and An Inunction
Issued.
It would appear that we were never to hear the
last of the Gaines case. After the litigation in
the United Stites court had been brought to a
close and the matter referred to the master in
chanoery to make computations, Mrs. Gaines
was oongratulated through the press on her
emancipation from court, but it appears all this
was a little premature, for yesterday, in the Sixth
District Court. Manuel de Ltano filed a suit
against Mrs. Gaines in a measure reopening the
old case.
It will be remembered that there was a tract of
ground included to the old Gaines claim, situated
at the corner of Perdido and Circus sheets, in the
immediate neighborhood of the Poydras Market.
It is regarding this tract that suit has been en
tered.
De Limao alleges in his petition that it was on
the seventh day of May, 11477, he entered into a
written contract or agreement with Myra Clark
(iines
cv WAY 01 COMPt'IOMITNG
a suit of Myra Cark (I tines va. flanuel de Liano
for the sum of $70110, by which he was to have
the full title and ownerehip free from all incnom
brances of the property then in dispute, situated,
as has been said, at the corner of Perdido at d
Circus streets. The petition goes on to state that
the number of said suit was 2734 of the United
States District Court. Further, that prior to the
making of the agreement of compromise, before
r.ferred to, of the 7th of May, 1877, a judgment
had been rendered recognizing Mire. Gaines as
the full owner of the property before describod.
and that the terms of this decree declared that
Mrs. Ga(nes was entitled to all the rents, bent fits,
etc.,belonging thereto. Petitioner now alleges that
the contract of compromise he had mide wan
intended by both parties thereto as an adjulst
ment and settlement of all claims and in full of
all demands. That he has ever been
WILLINCt TO OARRY OUT
in full the terms of his agreement, and that on
the 10th of August he made a legal tender to
Mrs. Gaines the sum of $7000, and he asked that
this agreement she made be carried out,
The petition goes on to allege that be has
good reason to fear that Mrs. Gaines is about to
disturb him in the possession of said property,
and he asks his affidavit and bond being con
sidered, that an injunctioo assue restraining Myra
Clark aliues from in any manner interfering
with him in the p Isessiou of his property; and,
further, for a judgment declaring the agree
ment entered into on the 7th May, 1977, of full
force and effect. The writ was issued on De
Liano'e giving $1000 bond.
THE HAlD-iUP ONES.
How They Are Gettlng Notlees to quit
From Landlords.
It needs only a cursory glance at our streete
and the number of idle men upon them to con.
vince one that there must be much sllfering
amonset the poorer clasres. Around the Cnu
tom-House, about the City Hall, on Canal street,
all day th, re lingers a crowd, whose very anxiety
of countenance betokens their unfortunate situa
tion and the pressing demands of those at home.
8eldom, if ever before, have we had so many
poor women-some of them, it is true, impos.
tors--begging for vctualse, and never has the
stroller on the boulevard been so importuned for
nickels, "For the love o' God, sir, only a nickel!'
In the rear portion or the city there are many
families whose sole subsistence is

lapida.ted market IutBket, and in the more thickly
'ettledl equrl want prevails. All this is not occa
,toned by any peculiar dearth of business, but is
ie natural result of the season here, for during
tie summer months labor is always reduced to a
minimum, and naturally more idle men are seen.
ItBt this year several causes have united to bring
about these results to a greater degree.
The description of the Packard dynasty was
one of these. During Radical domination in Lou.
isiana the offices had been multiplied to such an
extraordinary ex ent that, whole battalions of men
found in them their livelihood. All of hbie army

and after having luxuriktoe for so long a time in
the enjoyment of official rosis they now find
themselves at a loss what to do.
Pack rd's ptlico, too, contained about five hun
dred, who are all now, or nearly all, withou, work.
Then there was the Cuetom-House filled with
nolitical strikers and ward men, who are on the
streets, to say nothing of the one hundred decap
itated wi hing the lacs few weeks.
What first attrac ed the attention of the DE.Mo.
CRAT reporter t,' the above condition of thirgs,
was the fact that in the justice of the peace
courts there have been filed lately a large in
crease of landlords' notices to their tenants to
quit premises on account of non-payment of
rent. All over the city constables are serving
these notices, and
Tide lARDaIIIP TO RESULT
from such action ma) be ea'ily appreciated. In
one case a man of fine education, a writer of
more than ordinary power, who has been strug
gling for some time against adversity, with a sick
famdy on his hanaes, met the reporter and re
lated his case.
"I've got a little house," said he, "jdUt barely
large enough to shelter my little ones, for which
I pay $10 per month. No! I should hive said, I
don't pay, for I can't. To-day I got this paper;
look at it," handing over a legal notice to quit.
"Now, I can't get the money. I've tried to do
everything to get it, bu, failed. I don't drink,
yet I cannot get work. God knows what will be
come of me when my furniture is put into the
street. I can't raise money enough to hire even
a hand-cart, and have hardly had food enough
for body and soul, Tell me, now,
WHAT's A MAN TO Do?
'Don't you think the landlords ought to be
more lenient during the midesmmer witn tenants
they know will eventually pay ?"
This is only one instance that the reporter
happened to come across, but is a fa.r sample of
others.
As a rule, it has been said the landlords of
New Orleans have been pr verbially lenient, but
for rome reason it seems there are a large num
bar who are exceedingly exacting.
If the notices to quit were all the evils the
impecunious tenants were annoyed with it woul I
be hard, but yet not entirely demoral'zing, bat
what follows is much worse. Immediately up ,n
the debtor's furniture reaching the street a vi-it of
provisional seizure is levied upon it and every ar
tiole not specially exempte ! by law is hurried off
TO TEE CONSTABLE'S WAREHOUSE,
there to be sold.
With the dull serason upon us. with so many
out of employment, and with the brightest proe
petes for a winter when everybody can find work,
there ought not to be too much squeezing. The
crop outlook is a source of coougratnlat oa by our
merchants, the reduction of taxation under the
stable government of Gov. Nicho Is, the perfect
quiet everywhere, ought to wviah a ,metbking in
the scale and create more confidence to the
property hollers.

A FEW NOTES REL tTIVE TO ADBCOTllW
ING1 TAX COLLEL'TORN.
Dulnclet neenles Fulton'a Assertions as to
HIs Headiness to Receive Packard
Warrants.
Canezt, Theophilus T. Allain's ex-ltadical tax
collector for the parish of Ibervilhe, has made
his appearance at
THE AUDITOR'S OFFIOE,
and squared his accounts to the tune of $4000,
which he has paid into the treasury, preferring
that course to a civil and criminal trial which
was about to be brought against him.
Interested parties wanted $1300 or so of his
moneys "held bacL" by the Auditor, but he
wanted the full amount paid into the Treasury,
and in it went without any holding baoc or time
deposits. Other ex-collectors are expected to
sorape together such Iunds as they can com
mand, and "walk up to the Captain's office and set
tie" shortly, as the filing of suits against them
will be commenced at once, and while some may
wait until the district attorneys got after them,
others will not run the risk of a prolonged visit to
the big hotel at Baton Rouge, and will not be back
ward in coming iorw rd.
The Adjutant General is employing his leisure
time now in scanning
TnlII MILItC t,IAV.R
of Eastern, Middle and Western States, with a
view of preparing a Nhil to be presented at the
next session of th·I Ligi.la tire, and which it is
,xpeoted will, if paPsed, p ace this State on an
equtal mililia footing with ony Bate in the Union.
Considerable was said about the Slate-House
during the day about tx-Tax Colletolor Fulton's
oase and his claim that he owed the State but
t21,000 instead of $5',,000).
In connection with this claim, it was said by
some that tihe warrant stub books found in the
the Au litor's oftice could not be wrong and it
was thon.ght strange, too, that Fulton totk the
trouble to have
nTI OWN HtO)(tK RE .tV1:tD
and put away out of Fight the moment there was
a prospect of success for the Nicholls govern
ment.
T ie books referred to have not yet been pro
duced, and showing, as they must, Fulton's ac
counts, it is a-serted openly that there must be
crookedness ill them somewhere, else he would
not have taken the tr'nble to smuggle them out
of the way, as was Johnson's.
It is hinted, too, that James [. Clark, or "Big
Rix," as be is called, might figure in some way in
the books with his friend Kellogg, and to cover
both, the books of the First District as well as
the Auditor's are retained.
Kellogg's operations and functions were not, as
has been repeatedly asserted by the DEMOcRAT,
confined to executive duties, but he made himself
THlE flBes BLACKMAILER
to make "calls" on tax collectors for money, and
in one known instance compel'ed Carey. of the
Third District, to give him $500 cash, which is
only an irolated instance.
He must have been after larger hauls than
that, too, and would use his power to rake in
s'amps, one of his intimate friends oflTr ng at
one time to secure a tree and full pardon of a
convicted murderer
FOR THE RNUti SUM OF TWENTY 'Tit'ICtAND Dp)LIARR
in greenbacks. This proposition was made and
the pardon guaranteed upon payment of the
money, and the circumstances attending are well
known to at least a halt dozen pereons now in the
city.
If Kellogg would pardon a murderer for $20,000
he would undoubtedly divide profits with the
average tax collector, and that i, the argument
used by those who seem to think that Fulton is
endeavoring to cover Kellogg's operations. In con
nection wrth Fulton's assertions relative to tote
State Treasurer tha' official denies that he ever
said to Fulton that he would receive his warrants
as cash, but says that he told Mr. Fulton that he
would receive as cash only such warrants as were
l'kally receivable for taxes; that be was ap
proached time and again to receive similar war
rants in settlement and refused, and that he
refused to receive any settlements until the bar
ri^adea were taken from his oftice doors.
Packard, he says, offered to remove th*m long
enough to permit Fulton to make a settlement,
but tte treasurer refused, unless they were re
moved permanently.
Mr. Fulton has already been subptmnaed to ap
pear
BEFORE THE AUDITORAItL COMMITTEE,
and will have an pportunity to explain thewhole
matter, and Po-karkd may also be summoned at
no early day. It is said by those who ought to
know that 'nliron is miotakakn when be rays ho
I,tend, d to return here from Calif rnia., or woul I
return if a telegraphic commone waa sent him,
antd the records of the telegraph office might. if
produced, prove that the contrary was the case.
