places, and pleasure resorts, ho. with a small
caravan of Znny.lbarls at his back, marched to
Maialland. and was the first civilized man to
mako a comploto circuit of KIUma-Njft.ro.
Xoung Chanler's expedition will start to the.
Interior early In June from Lamu. the port of
Vituland. on the east coast
The Bum reporter found him to-day In his

"Khaki" and tan-leather clothing, drill trou

" I am purfeclly willing." said Mr. Ohsnler.
whon I mads known to him my object in call
lie. " to tell you unreservedly my plans and
my projocts, my hopes and my fears. In regard
to the journey I am about to undertake I
shall only mako ono proviso. Tho projects I
I am about to outline to you aro my plans at

"When I came of age and went to Africa, I
must confess, my only aim waa to kill bis came
and alot of It: but as I fanoy. every one would
aoon becomo tired of sending bullets into the
hides of pachydermatous rhinos, or shooting,
few and far between, a leopard or a lion. I too
wanted to explore, make charts, and see
strange people and customs. I liked the ex
citement of the life, and I own to the ambition
of wishing that some day. when the history of
Africa la written, a benevolent historian might
ear:
"'Then there was a young American named
Chanter, with nothing else In particular to do.
Who came to Africa, and by persistent travel
lad Investigation succeeded.' let ua say. 'In
hero and there olearlng up a shadow from the
fop ot the Dark Continent'
On my return from Klllma-Njaro and
Kasallandpt was my wish and Intention to
immediately fit out a much larger and better

fever.and I was taken ill also. When wo reach
ed Mompasa we were immediately shipped to
Europe, and invalided home. During (ho two
years that havo passed since my return to
Europe, my only thought has boen to equip
tho expedition as perfectly and as completely
as possible, so that if we fail to accomplish
anything, the blame and tho responsibility

tried to ilnd out how many times tho visitors

they had visited previously, but Mr. Melntyros
objections wero sustalnod. Onrdner sworo
tlintnonoof tho womon had snt In Dr. Pnrk

"Dr. Pnrkhurst did not look nt the exhibi

him to stay.". , .,
John Lnngdon Krvlng was then called. Ho
appeared to bo revel ish und excited as lio do
tailed tho revolting scenes of tho ovening in
much the same languuga and In greater do

who had sworn thnt thoy woro nothing but
undoigarments. Jlr. l.rvlng grew very nur

and nearly broko down In his de
scription of what ho saw. Ho wns unable to
assign nny other motlvo for visiting this nnd
other places oxcept "to bo with Dr. Pnrk
hurt." In reply to tho sumo question, sov
end llinos repeated, ho said:
" My motlvo was to accompany Dr. Park

" Why. Dr. Pnrkhurst went to thoso placos
and Ifollownd." , ,
"My motiownsto work in connection with

" My trotivo was to get cvldonoo." ,
" 1 didn't know oxnetly what tho object

Mr. Krvlng said that the, oxhlMtlon dlsgnst
cd him, and ho tinned his head away.
"That Is." snld Mr. Brooko, "you simply
looked us long as you noiild. and when you
got disgusted you turnod your hoad away?''
" Yos." said .Mr. Krvlng.
" And whon you recovered from your llttlo
minim you turned and looked ugain ?"
" es."
"Vlioro did thoso nakod girls sit aftor tho

"Aioundthn room."

"Did one of thorn sit on your lap?"
"Vor."
"Did sho kiss you?"
"No. not then."
"Did you kiss her?"
"No."
" Whon did she kiss you ?"
"Ab I was gotting up to leavo sho throw her
arms around me and kissed me."
"And this was nfter theso alsgustlng per

"es," snld Mr. Krvlng, and then grow red
and terynenous.
" You did not repol hor?" asked Mr. Brooke.
"Yos." euld Mr. fc.ring. shifting uneasily.
Then he said No. and seemed much agi
tated. On a repetition ol tho question ho said
he did not know could not remember.
" Welmvo threo answers to tlu.t question."
snld Mr. Brooko. "no can take our pick?"
There was no reply.
There was an almost painful scone over tho
quebtion whothor or not ono of tho nude
womon had sat In Dr. Pnikhurst's lap. Mr.
Krvlng sworo that nono did, nnd then snld ho
couldn't tell whethorunydid ornot Finally
ho mid that If any did sit In Dr. Pnrkhnrst's
lap ho didn't see It Mr. Lrvlng wns now clear
ly oyercomo, nnd went to pieces over the ques
tion who drank beer nnd when It wus drunk.
Ho was sure thoro were four rounds, but that
was alt ho was sure of, and in tho course of bis
confusion he contradictod many points In his
testimony that ho hud previously insisted
upon. Mr. lirooko Anally became moved by
the young man's llushod face and confusion,
and asked Judge Fitzgerald how long tho ses
sion would continue. It was then after 5
o'clock and adjouroment wns announced. Mr.
Krvlng wns to go on tho stund ngnin this
morning at 11 o clock.
During tho examination it wns brought out
that Gardner paid for tho exhibition out of hi j
own pocket oxpectlng to havo tho amount re
funded to him by Dr. Parkhurst's socloty. All
oxcept Dr. Pnrkhurst helped pay for boer.
Gardner said he received $5 for evory six
hours ho worked. It appeared through an
explanation made by Mr. Brooko to tho Judge
that tho defence would try to provo eon sptraoy,
claiming that theso four mun hud conBplrod
to procure the b nking of the law on the part
of the women. Judge rltz.-ruld allowed tho

John C Henderson of North t'arollnn, Chair
man of the Tost Ofllco Committee, that brings
to the nttontlon of Congress nnd thu country
tho peculiar and boustod " business nuthodB"
employed by "Honost John" Wnnaniaker In
Iho conduct of tho Post Office Dopartmont.
The otldrnco convicting tho Postmaster-Ocn-ernl
of using his public ofllco for the promo
tion of private business concorns is containod
In tho memorial of H. 1'. Leako of Phtluilclphld,
charging tho Postmastor-Oeueral wllh haying
proventod tho adoption of tlio Leake pneumatic
tubes by tho postal authorities lu Philadel
phia because thoro had been deposited with
tho Bank of tho ltcpubllo In Philadelphia, to
Mr. Wanamakor's order. 7,500 shares of tho
stock of an opposition company. Tho memo
rial, which was roforred to tho Post Ofllco
Committee, asks for an Investigation, which
will undoubtedly bo grnuted, and tho oppor
tunity given to Mr. Lcnko which he seeks to
provo tho accuracy of every charge which ho
roakos against tho Postmnstor-Genoral. Ho
has tho necessary letters and other documents
at hand to substantiate his charges. Ho has
talkod with many prominent members on both
sides of tho IIouso to-day, nnd their nctlvo
support has boen promised htm in laying bare
tho romarkablo transactions of tho Postmnstor-Genoral.
Chairman Hondorson will seo to
it, ho says, that the memorial has the immedi
ate nttontlon of the Post Ofllco Committee, nnd
thoro Is no doubt thut tho doslrcd investiga
tion will be ordered.
The Leako company is a Philadelphia enter
prise incorporated In Now Jersey In Novem
ber. 18JJ1. with a capital stock of $10,000,000.
On Nov. , 1801, President Lenko submitted n
proposition to Postmastor l'leld of Philadel
phia offering to lay a IM-inch metal pipe be
tween tho Post Offlco building nt Chestnut
and Ninth streets and the sub-station in
Chestnut street, below Fourth streot nnd to
thoroughly equip tho plant with pneumatlo
appliances. Tho plant was to cost $40,000. und
was to be donated to tbe Post Ofllco Depart
ment The proposition was guaranteed by
Christopher Uallugher, Thomas O. Carey,
Thomas Clemonts, and Bradley Brothors, ratod
to bo worth $j50,mkj.
Postmaster Field said at tho tlmo that ho
took the proposition to Washington and doliv
oied it to Mr. Watmmakor. No nttontlon wns
paid to the proposition, hut an effort wus mado
by tho Washington officials to procure the
right of way through tho streets of Philadel
phia for tho laving therein of u pneumatlo
system, controlled by James O. Mclienrv, an
nssoclate of Wanamakar in his Sunday school,
und which proposes to charge $40,000 for Its
exporlment. Iho Lonke company appoalodto
Wan unaker. nnd he replied thnt he had not
recoiled their preposition. This wus startling
information, in v low of the statement of Post
master Field thnt ho personally handed the
document to Mr. Wnnamukor. Mr. Field wns
In Colorado nt tho time, and II. P. Hughes, act
ing Postm ister of Philadelphia, sent a let
tor to Mr. Wanamalter. showing tho
truth of Leake's assertions, and nlso
his responsibility us a business man.
Mr. Wanamakor replied thnt hu could not
open up the streots of Philadelphia for them.
The Losko Company hud never mado any
such requests of Mr. Wanamakor. us it pro-
Fiosed. and nftorwnrd .ld. get that rrivilego
rom tho city, which privilcgo was rcfusod to
tho opposition company.
Jlr. Wanumaker askodtha Lenk company
to appear bofurx W. II. Brooks, custodian, and
Oeorgo W. Painter, assistant of tho Philadel
phia Post Office, to give Information as to the
power required to operntu the respo.-tmi
systems. Brooks and Painter reported in
favor of tho leaks company, and Postmastor
Field sont tho report to thu Post Otilco Depart
ment Thon Mr. Wanamakor bad John L McMnnn.
Inspectorof Honting Apparatus, sent to Phila
delphia to mnke nnother report. McMnnn told
Leako that ho reported in substance th it tho
Leak.) company required thu uso of only ono
boiler t onernto its srstem. wherens
tho other company required three boil
ers. McMaun nlso pruned tho jointcJ
carriers or th" Leake company, say
ing that they wore specially v.tluablo lu
tinning cunes. But in a letter to Postmaster
1 ield Mr. Wanniauker claimed thnt Mr. Mc
M. inn's report wis of such a nature thattho
department cnnld not use tho he ike system.
I.e.iko immclliitely u"d:od 1 Ield forucopyof
Wnnnmakor's letter, but It was refused, i.euko
thon teleg-aphed to Wiinamaker, stating tho
facts regard tug tho porter required to operuto
tlio two systems. Wiuianriker then ondouy
orod to sblft tlie.rceponsiblllty onto tho Treas

Mr. Leako then asked the Treasury Dormit
inent for a copy of M.-Mami's report. This
wus refused. Hi. then insist. i Hint either Ills
company had been misrepresented by .McMnnn
or tint JlcMiiiin hud been misrepresented by
