Jl t WASHINGTON Oct lBThe Connecticut
i newspaper that rocenUy apoko of Judge Hoi
man as ft cheap domauouo know nothing of
the man or 0180 mado a charge that was as
foollili a It was dlshonost foolish because
every ono who know Holinan know It was so
untrue that I needed no refutation Whatever
else may be charged to Holman nobody In or
out of Congress who has ever boon brought In
contact with him has over believed hat ho was
guilty of contomptlblo vice Hu laughed
at bocauao of bin simplicity of habit nnd his
traniptironcv of motive Ills Peculiar I > almost
singular certainly striking cliaractcrlBtlc Is
ilmcUclty Ho Is I simple almost l carelessness
indrois simple In his homo lite utterly lack
Inif In thoallpervadlnesoltconsctousnosa that
nine out of ten of tho public men take on and
I in I plain of speech unaffected In manner and
utterly Incapable of dissimulation That ho
shoulJ have ben kopt in public lifo by an In
dlina constituency for nearly u generation Is
a marvel to polltlclatiOAwho believe thnt a man
of the character described U I bound to be a dead
failure in politics
Probably no man In public Ufa is so little un
derstood as Holman This Is partially duo to
his own course partially to the hostility ho has
aroused Holman except In the line of what
j he believes t b duty Is a timid modest man
I and Is tho last man to be picked out In Con
cross as ono who courts personal popularity
Ho does his duty and Is contont therewith
He stands among his associated Congressmen
a a mal who Is feared respected and by many
thoroughly disliked Ho Is feared bccau ho
is ono of the most vigilant as welt IIH fearless
of f men in tho performance of his public obliga
tions Ho Is rospoctod because of his
t008 r080ctl bcause enormous
knowledge of public affairs and of his remark
able ability and ns a corollary to that Is hatod
because his knowledge his fearlessness and
bit ability have enabled him to protect tho
Treasury or to protest when attacks were
being made on It Holman has none of tho
mannerisms that of
petty personal so many
tho littlo men who have got to the top nowa
days seem to think necessary to assume I
lien eoto Congress seemingly consumed with
an ambition to be known as good fellows They
i think that good fellowship goes further than
brains In aiding ambition Qarflold was an ox
1 pert in the assumption of good fellowship
Ulalno could assume that mannerism Holmun
never palavers and never vonoors himself with
S unctuous ways He is alloys as plain and
transparent a window pane Ho Is tHerefore
regarded as a little fresh and men sOle at his
simplicity Public men seem to b unable to
understand such a character Professions to
them are generally only the curtains that hide
Wjtlves and hypocrisy is so common that it Is
believed to bo necessary to success You hear
T mon rave and platltudlnizo about Jefferson
Lot wlieii they see right before them one of tho
best scholars that Jefferson ovor taught thoy
Incline t crack jokes respecting Holmaas
j freshness and to sneer at his niggardliness
The cheap politicians never understood Lin
t coin Recently 1 member of Buchanans Cab
I inet who served In Congress with Lincoln said
that he only remembered Lincoln as a buffoon
1 i or clown Men who knew Lincoln say that
there wero many traits of his character that
t I Holmau more than any public man reminds
them of Lincoln had more management but
no sterner integrity In simplicity oft I bab
its of Ufa the resemblance Is Htrlklng Lin
i i coIns freedom from vanity or solfconsclous
cess has bon spoken of a something that en
deared him to men and certainly there Is no
lan in Washington who hob loss ot the fall
now known a the big head than Hoi I
lana falling which oxTreasurer Qllflllan
once ald had ruined more public men than
j any other weakness And to go to tho lighter
aide of life Lincoln liked n joke nnd a story
spiced with humor no better than Holmium
though the hatters fun takes the form of dry
wit or quaintly humorous suggestion
Ilolmona greatest misfortune a a public
man Is his voice I he had a volcu poworful
like Garllolds or thunderous like J Cwsar
Burrows or sweet ana yet penetrating hike Matt
Carpenters ho would perhaps bo batter
equipped for work In tho hurlyburly noisy
chamber of the House His voice in thin high
keyed and so weak that it seldom reaches tho
galleries This as woll as his unassuming
Banner and unrhotoricnl style of speaking pre
vents him from being conspicuous among his
fellows When bo spunks his habit Is to twirl
his spectacles which Is i all tho gesticulation he
Indulges In and ho nays what ho has to nay In
n Informal conversational way The two
words which havo given him tho tttlo of tho
great objector are seldom hoard ton feet away
from his seat unless tho Hpoakor tries to nvold
him Eelfor tried several times to bluff him
down by pretending not to havo heard hU ob
jection but Koifer soon learned that Holmnn
never permitted himself to be bluffed out of his
rights Yot whon Holman rises pending dis
cussion on an appropriation bill bo always has
attention and heroin Is tho proof of his
Ii strength and the measure of tho fear and roo
pct of his associates Ho Is honored more
than any of his follows by being mado the
I object of tho pleading prayers and requests of
members who gather about his seat after be
t has stated the reasons for his objections and
J Dfttn from the gallery an amusing pantomime
can b seen of members who after fruitless
f pleading retire with scowls nnd look daggers I
at thu great objector This shows that Holman i
11 baa the moral courage to do what tow members I
can do resist tbu Importunities of friends
when he believes ho Is right I
l9 The impression has been encouraged that Hol
1 lan fires his objections ut random hit or miss
I that he Is I mischief maker whoso capacity
t lies In his ability to bark at tho heels of tho
Appropriation Committee Hut you will nnd
no member whose little jobberies Holman has
Y run afoul of who will say so Holman novor made
an objection that was not backed by a reason
i and he states It clearly and points Instant
ly I to his authority for I When ho Is In
doubt he can drive tho facts out of the Appro
priation Committee by retentions and Intoll
i gent Questioning I Is here and not so much
ID the fact that ho objects that ho gives
the House reason to fear him I Is hero
Ihat the remarkable capacity of Holman re
veals Itself Ho is admittedly unoaualled In
his ability to search out grasp and master the
details of the great appropriation bills Ills
i an ability that showy men seldom possess and
< ji It I probable that Holmuu Is tho only
i man In the Congresses in which ho has
4 served who has mastered thr appropriation
bills from beginning to end Ulalno with
S al his showy qualities never could have Joue
It GardeId never pretended to attempt It
Dawes couldnt do it Aside from the rodlg
lous labor required to master the appropria
tion bills the most farrotiching knowledge of
the processes administering the Government
from the payment of f tho salary the President
down to the number of Hcrubwomnn needed In
thu Capitol and from the purchase of a pun

UwUlcd appUoatlon to Ugurta for problems
must bo world out for oneself with pencil and
Paper to obtain information It demands
research that goes back to the first pages
of tho statute books and I compels thorough
acquaintance with tho history of the growth of
appropriation bills No Appropriation Commit
too of recent years has had n member who could
begin to approach Judge Holm tins learning In
this regard His advice Is oren sought and
largo demands uro mado ovory session upon
tho storehouse of his knowledge on this sub
ject His statement of fact Is accepted fre
quently without Booking other evidence and
his opinion has tho weight of an authority
The appropriation bills when prepared make
documents containing from a hundred to I
< rel
thousand specific Items each Judgo Holman
examines each knows why It Is them knows
whoro to got Information respecting tho pro
priety of It or whether tho amount granted Is
too groat His knowlodgo enables him to pen
etrate all hidden schemes and to runko
otrlto 01 hlldon lake tho
result that penetration clear l tho Houso
Hero HOB the reason of mens hatred Ho Is pow
orful and dangerous because ho Is equipped
JUlie Holinan cots the tlmo to do tho groat
work because when Washington ho
bcnuse in Wasblnlton gives
all his time to his duties Ho does not spend
his mornings running around tho departments
securing places for henchmen Herein ho dif
fers from thoso who have boon loudest In de
nouncing him as I mischief maker His morn
ing is given to work and tho lamp burns Into
In his plain apartments Holman likes social
life though muoh of tho socallod society of
Washington offers no attraction t a man like
him Iluthohasno time for It Uo regards
his time a belonging to tho people They say
ho Is old fashioned and it Is probable ho rather
likes tho name of being so
l Is from no love of tho work that Judge
Holman does it Ho believes It to be a duty
I Is his conviction thattho silent corrosion that
a plethoric and unguarded Treasury is euro to
suffer threatens tho health and permanence of
democratic Institutions with a deadly throat
He holds that it is the sign of vigor of prudence
and of healthy public morals to bo constantly
watching for and warding oft that evil Ho boo
haves that wlso economy In taxation and ox
poudlture stops the evil by taking away tho
opportunity and ho also Is firmly convinced
that the habit of practising economy and
honosty in public expenditures is a tonic that
invigorates and makes healthful all legislation

Speaker Alfred C Chapln the candidate of
tho Democracy for Comptroller began his
speech with 1 picture of the environments of
political life In the time of Alexander Hamil
ton who said that public life In this country
had few attractions either from pecuniary
emolument or reputation Mr Chapin wits of
the opinion that our fathers wero not better off
In this respect than ourselves and that the
honest public officer must be content to feo his
best efforts unknown and unappreciated He
was of tho opinion thai politics may
ba purified by taking away ns much
as possible those prizes which are
sought only by sordid selMntorvst leaving as
the fair and legitimate prize that which may bo
properly sought by onlightHDud selfinterest

thnt the least thing would raise a tremendou
row On Thursday nlicht the Methodist Church i
save an oyster supper It began at 8 oclock
and nothing occurrod to mar the harmony oi
the occasion until 11 John Hnckett the Cap

close to a canuy BIHUU wmcii EIUUU nxiuuai lu
altar rail Uo was Mono In his paw and In tin
aisle a number of children were playing 3
Couples were walking up and down and mans
peoplo were tn tho pews
Capt William Henry Smith who own a f
schooner and whose sister la Sackotts wife u
walked down the aisle to the DOW In which ij
Bnckett sat leaned and spoke to him He had
said only a few words when both clinched and Ji
Sackett took n saw handle from under his coat 14 tJ
or from thn pow and struck Smith several vio
lent blows with It They struggled toll on the
Iloor trot up attain dealt numerous and hear I
blows on each others faces and finally feliovei 5
on thn candy stand and smashed It
Women and children screamed and ran from i
tIme church to the street while others ran In to V I
see the fracas The Itov William Taft anil nix
or seven of his parishioners ran down the aisle
to the two debtors and did their boat to
separate them Smith and Sackett struck at t i
each other over the minister1 head and some i <
of time other peacemakers were actually struck f
by HID enraged combatants and they still boar
marks of time blows
Capt Htnlth and Capt Sackett fought mind I
rolled over and tugged at each other all up
the aisle while women screamed and the chll
druu cried At last thoy reached the street and
were there separated bv force of number
Smiths face was badly bruised and cut anti I
one of his eyes was nearly cloned His head 5
wits cut deeply lu two places Uoth men wen t
taken home by their friends Captain Sacketlt i
Injuries were less severe thouch he ulso bar
marks of the fray Pastor Taft was Indignant I
at what had occurred and soerul women bo < i
came hysterical t I
All the residents ot Bayvlllq agreed Tester f
day that Smith had been worsted but thei
could not agree as to who had struck the llrsl i
blow Captain Sackett and his friends say hi
acted simply In selfdefence and that Smith m 4
trib him wttlmtlt nrnvri ntlnn Tlia nBuanll V
they say grow out of an old family quarrel 4
About 9 oclock on Thursday night Capt 4
Smith said yesterday to a reporter as I was t
on my way to the church and was passing hut 1
street well almost opposite the church a man I
who was crouching on the ground struck me I
on the head with a club and I fell to the ground
unconscious I lav them a lone time and when A
1 cam to and went Into the church to see j
SiickMt he without warning pulled the BUM
handle from under his coat and struck me
with It Then I struck him and the flgh i
began It was an old family quarrel revived
nnd I know ho was the man who struck mn at
the well I did not Intend to strike him in the
church 1 was going to ask him to come out
side to speak to me
I shall probably cot out a warrant for his
arrest and he may do the same for mo I am
right 1mm time matter The cause ot the old quar
rel I cant explain It Is a private family mat II 4
