Wi Orlfflthi. the contractor who bed built tie
new uloop Knterprlse at Portsmouth, had, by a
system of fraud connived at by Constructor
Hanscomb. been overpsld $lft.000. Donald Mc
Kay, who built the sloops Adami and Rsx at
Huston, was by tbe same system overpaid $22,000.
These overpayments are In the nature of allow
ance! made tho ootitractor! un what are pre
tended to be delays caused by the Government.
There were no changes made In the drafts for
the vessels; but there were changes In the con
tract which It Is not protended Increased tbe
cost of the shins, but wblob caused some delay
to the contractor.
The oommltteoa after a patient etamlnatlon
of these cases unamoiuusly concluded that thov
were frauds upon the Government, nnd the full
commit toe to do. after receiving tho re
ports and onslderlng the facts, directed
the chairman to notify the herretary of
the Navy thereof, and to rSqUISt blm
to withhold any further payment to Grif
fiths and McKay. I here w s, under Hans
coin's lyititrtt something aMIl due them, but, aa
the committee r nteiid, not Jus'lv owing. On

was satisfied that Mr. WsltiS would make a flood

proved thnt he Is even better than Fisher-far
more pliant and even more cunning than tils
