Ton^- showed Itself exceedingly Incon*

dled on the 'sundry civil appropriation bill the
which tries t.. suspend the Sherman antl

by a fjontractor named Connolly and printed in "Thi

of belli:' all that is rolled for w hon so delicate B

may personally feel, and riphtly. too, that the
.hnreo.? rtgainsl him and his accuser aro both be

that the whole stoi*y ho made perf??jcUy plain, so
that the public* may see for itsolf that the BCcntttlOfl
