Tho'matoriol to furnish it was present
when Commissioner Holahon announced
that court was opon.
Tliero was Mayor Orestes Cleveland, of
Jersey City, who wns a potential factor in
securing stands for his brother-in-law Wm.

as a market restaurateur, and ex-Assemblyman
Daniel E. Finn, who has been wanted so
Ions to tell about his securing a stand in the
new market, but who had successfully evaded
the snbpoona-servers of Mr. Nicoll and the
Commissioners until Saturday.
Mayor Cleveland was the first witness ex
amined. Ho told how he secured five stands
from his brother-in-law's firm.
Ha had known Sunt, Kelso forty-three
years, and visited him at his offlco to ask him
if tho rumor that stands would not be allotted
to non-residents was true.
Mr. Kelso said that it was. but remarked
that as two of tho partners resided in the
State that fact uncut mako somo difference.
Afterwards tho witness made tho application
in the name of W. II. Hoag A Cc.
He could not oxplain why the permits were
turned in tho'namo of Van Doren &. Co. and
ltussoll Hone
Mayor Clovoland slid that he had como bo
fore tho Commission voluntarily to relievo
tho memory of his old friend, Bupt. Kelso,
from any imputation of wrosR-doing in so
far as tho granting of permits for stands to
his brother-in-law was concernod.
Thomas 1 Farrell. of 27 Wost Thirty
seventh street, was the next witness called
by Commissioner Holalian. and tho testi
mony bogun was a bomb-shell for the Com
sioners. 'the witness is a member of tho Tammany
Hall Association of the Fifteenth Assembly
He said that ho had heard through M. J.
Smith, a saloon-keeper at Thirty-sevonth
street and Eighth avenuo, that it cost John
Curley, a stand-holder in tho new market,
SM to secure his permit.
" To whom did ho pay it ?" was the next
" To a man connected with your office at
"Wlmt man?"
" Col, Theodoro Hamilton, Assistant Com.
missiouor of Accounts."
The witness baid that ho had told this story
to Mayor Grant, who baid that he mUBt go
before the Commissioners of Account and
toll it, as ho (tho Mayor) was bound to sift
this matter to tho bottom and soe if there had
boen any orookednobs in tho allotment of
Jouu Gurltjr, tho standfholder mentioned
by the procediug witness was next sworn.
Ho testitiod that ho applied for a Htaud.and
through his son tried to interest Gon. F. H.
bpinola in his bohalf. Ho thinkB that tho
Uenoral got tho stand for him, for Gen.
bpiuola had told him so.
Col, Thooduro A. Hamilton, ho said, had
offered his services in assisting the witnoss to
soeuro tho stand and ho had accoptod Mr.
Hamilton's holp.
Tho Colonol clalmod that he got the stand
permit, but tho witness believed that Gen.
hpiuola's inlluonco was more potent in socur.
jnEit,Ro,'.'jubt to make things easy," bo gave
lI. Hamilton 845 to pay him for running
' ' Before I got my stand, " the witnoss wont

I told him I wouldn't pay five cents to any
jnan in the city government, but if ho wonted
the money for himself I would givo it to
him, I gave him 425 then.
Afterwords I govo him $10 when he asked
po for it. and about Christmas tiwo I gave

Mr. Curley said that ho had bought two
coxes of cigars for 620 and presented them to
oupt. Kelso, and had given $14 to Chief
Clerk Graham MoAdara.

He said that ho knows Mr. Gurloy. Last
June Mr. Curley askod him if ho could get a
corner stand for him. Ho said :
