The County ?Tutlicictry
' Convention.
The People's Voice Dis
J(?hn Kelly's Reasons for Not Having
Him as "My Candidate."
The Tammany Hall Judiciary Convention met yester
day afternoon at the Wigwam, on fourteenth street,
for the purpose of nominating candidates for the va
cancies about to occur In the Superior Court, Court of
Common l'leas, for Recorder, City Judge, Surrogate
and two judges of the Marine Court.
The Convention was called to order shortly after
three o'clock by Mr. John Kelly, who named Mr.
Augustus Schell as temporary chairman anil Thomas
C. Campbell and G. W. Morton as temporary secre
taries. This motion was adopted and the officers
named assumed their seats.
Mr. Schell was afterward chosen permanent Presi
dent of the Convention. In his speech ho referred to
the of ligations imposed upon every member of the
Convention, and said that in no way could tbey better
carry out such obligations than by putting in nomina
tion men ot integrity and uprightness and character.
Mr. Magnus Gross then offered the following resolu
tions, which .were adopted
Resolved. That the delegates from each Assembly district
and froiu the Twenty-third and Twenty-fourth ?anl>, re
spectively, select two of their number to constitute a com
mittee to which shall he referred the names ol all persons
who may be nominated for any office in this Convetiou by
any member thereof.
Kesolved, Tliut such committee retire, and after careful
consideration report to this Convention for its action such
recommendations iss to thorn rnsv nam proper in relation to
the several candidates, together with the names of all the
candidates considered by or referred to them.
Kesolved, That the report of such committee shall not he
considered dual, but that it shall he the right of each mem
ber of this Convention to exercise his own judgment in
an ting lor the nominaliou of candidates.
Nominations were then made by each Assembly
district delegation as their names were called:?
for Superior Court, Judge F reedman was unanimously
For Judge ot the Court of Common Please, Judge
Ja>cw was the choice of twenty out oi the twenty-four
The Recorder, Frederick Smythe, was the selection of
all but the Nineteenth Assembly district, which,
'through ex-Mayor Tiemauu, nominated Recorder
for City Judge. J. C. Spencer received support from
nine delegations, A. S. Sullivan from six, and F. A.
J-'tniknecht from one, while several other delegations
declined to nominate at ail.
for Surrogate, if. C. Calvin was the choice of twenty
two of the delegations, and F. F. Mar fury of two.
For the Marine Court there we/Qput on nomination
Messrs. Stolknecht, W. J. Kane, Smiiott, J. P. O'Neill,
Ackert, W. A. Boyd. Diipigtiae. J. P. Sullivan, J. 11.
Harm-It and J. A. Bell. Messrs. Boyd, Duptgnnc and
Mel! withdrew their names, the former stating that he
Lad just been appointed to the office of Corporation At
torney and he intended to carry out the duty imposed
on him and which he had undertaken to perform.
>\>r District Attorney the Convention appeared to be
unanimous for Peter B. Olney.
At this stage of the proceedings Mr. Kelly rose and
Before the committee appointed to ronfer upon tho
nominations that should be recommended to Ibe Con
vention retire, 1 think it due to the Convention?it is
due to myself and it is due to the people ol the city of
New York?thai 1 should make some answer to the pub
lic press as to w hy Recorder Hackett should not txi
?gain nominated by a democratic convention in Tam
many Rail. 1 find an impression going abroad that he
?liouid be renominated because he lias proved himself
to he an efficient, honorable and just Judge. I am
sure neither he nor bis friends will think it contuma
cious ol me if I sbow he is not the just Judge the news
papers say be is. Recorder Haeketl was nominated by
Governor Hoffman nine years ago. His nomination
was continued by the Board ol Supervisors at that
time. Recorder Hackett at the time of his appoint
ment was Assistant Corporation Counsel and received a
lair remuneration for the duties he was called upon to
perform. Look at the records, which will
show that he claimed to receive salary lor
services never rendered. After fifteen months
Lad elapsed, during which time he was
dcupving the position of Recorder, he sent in a claim
for $21. TOO for salary for services reudered aa an
attendant in the office of the Corporation Attorney. Ho
might perhaps have claimed this sum under the law,
but there is a moral law that every right and Just man
is called upon to observe, and I iedve it to the members
?l the Convention to judge whether be observed that
moral law. .''ball I say he was under the
Influence of the "Ring ' which at that timo
governed the city? Will any gentleman say
he did not vote lor every measure in that Board of
Supervisors in 1870 and 1871, whereby millions of tho
people's money was paid out in what ha* since proved a
fraudulent manner ? I do not mean to make an assault
against Recorder Hackett.
Lut when the press has come out, as it has done, and
is continually pointing out the necessity of
inaugurating reform in our political govern
ment, they uliould show both sides of the 1
question. 1 should tire the Convention were 1 to
attempt to read the documents I have, which >
set forth a multiplicity of acta against the ]
Recorder. He quashed the indictments against
two of the Ring robbers. It will tie said it was
done legally; but 1 can safely say that if an appeal is
taken to the best authorities and to the minority of tbe
meiuliers of the legal profession in the city to-day his
ails will be declared to have been entirely
illegal. There was, it will 1>e remembered, j
an organization called the Citizens' Association,
composed ot the moil respectable members of the com
munity, who gave their time gratuitously to the reform
of the abuses that exisli-d at tnat time. Well, Re
corder Hackett made a charge to the Grand Jury to
Indict the officials connected with that association
because tbey were engaged In bringing to justice the
men who had brought shame on the city. Did
the Grand Jury indict them? No. They knew
there was no reason to do so. They 'said in
their presentment that he was doing something that
some day he would regret The day, I think, ha* come.
The presentment I refer to wss stippres - d by the Dis
trict Attorney at time, Mr A. Oakcy HalL Then, too,
J may say that 18 out of 20 of bis decisioiM were set
aside by tho Court of Appeals. It may t* said I am not
justified in bringing tic-Ms facts before the Con
vention, but I think 1 am right to mention
them under existing conditions, and, if you, as
reasonable men, make u mistake now, the
onus falls upon yourteiv -. The Judiciary should be
just as pure as the driven snow. VY> have heard It said
that the people are uoi comp Tent tochoo- - tin ,r Judi
ciary, and that a more select Judiciary ? ould lie oh
tamed if It was Dominated by an cxeout.ve officer of
the government, who would be i<ett< r abb- to make a
good selection than we can. It now depsnds on this
Convention to say whether it will make such
nominations that no one can possibly point
s linger at or raise a word of question
as to the integrity aud fitness of tho nominees.
Ja-t us show that we are Worthy to make our own
choice, arid for our own honor and the good of the
people only nominate for the Judiciary as lor every
other public office only such men who are well known
among their fellows for their probity and capabilities to
till the position tbey may be elected to. The
judges should be men above all others w ho are en
tilled to the confidence of tlio people, loc where abuses
?re brought before tbetn their duty is to investigate
these evils without question as to any Influence or
friendly relations that can ! ? brought to bear on them.
At this point Mr J. A. Beall read the fo.lowing cor
respondence which had passed between himself and
Mr. Wheeler H. Peckham
New York, Oct. Id, HIT.
Dear 9ik?I have been selected a delegate to the 'l am
many HsJl Judiciary Convention, which meets on the
llth'inst. The name of Recorder John K. Hackett is
Iwing pressed by his friends for rrnomination for the
office of Recorder. There have been criticisms In cer
ium quarters as to Recorder Hackett'* action w.ih
reference to the first trial of Mayor Hall and in
regard to the Indictments against Peter B Sweeny and
Hugh Smith. Knowing your prominent connection a*
counsel in all the legal proceedings againi-t the mem
bers of the Isle nag I beg to ask whether the action of
Recorder Hackett in the matters above referred to or
in any proceedings against the ring, as it bus come to
vour knowledge, affords just ground for criticism.
An early answer will grfiatly oblige yours v?ry re
Spectfully, A- .
To Wm'sklsr H. Feck ha*, Ksq.

Mr. Peckham returned tbe follow?ng reply:?
No. 2V W ALL .Street, New York, Oct 11, 1875.
Da A R Sir?1 have your letter Of Ibis dale asking in
formal :on as to the action of Recorder Hackcti on ihe
?SOaawu of the Drat trial ol Mayor Hail and in r. hp. t?
l<> the indictment of Peter B. Sweeny, Hugh Smith and
others. 1 Ibiak that as a delegate to a nominating con
vention you are entitled to know the facts.
The first trial of Mayor Hail was in the Court of Ses
sions. Judge Dale. < hi'-f Justice of the Common Pleas,
presiding. Mayor Hull had previously p?bDcly slated
fl at owmg to li s personal irieudly relations with H

defended by nnmeroo* end eery able counsel,
whom rnav be mentioned Mr. Stoughton, Mr. Bucrtll, Mr.
Jnint'i- M. Smith, Mr. Sbafcr the late Mr. Buckley and
other*. Mr. Tremain, Mr. Clinton and myself appeared
fur the prosecution. The District Attorney, owing to
hi* personal relation* with Mr. Hall, did not appear.
Alter the trial had been pending tome weeks a Jur"r
died. Meantime the succeeding regular term of the
Court ol Session* hud been opened, Hocordor Hackett
presiding. The trial at the time of the Juror's death
hud developed a very serious aajiect for Mr. Hull A
question then arose us to the power of Mr. Justice Daly
to impanel a new jury ami proceed with the trial. This
question was partly argued and an adjournment taken
to a lutiire dav, when it was to be decided, whether
with or without "further discussion I do not uow re
member. Pending that adjournment the point was
made iu tome cuse in Recorder Hackett's branch of the
court that his branch was illegal, owing to the silting
ol Judge Daly's branch. The Recorder not onl>
ruled that bis branch was legal, but, as 1 re'n^nV
her, went further and stated that Judge Daly s
was illegal. On the meeting of Judge Paly ?
brunch on the adjourned day. Judge Daly declined to
consider the question on its merit*, and saw that alter
the decision of Recorder Huckett his only course was
to follow it, and he did so, discharging the jury ana
ending the trial. . ,A ,. ku_.
What Judge Dalv's decision on the merits would have
been I do not know. Whether Recorder Haeketi n
making tl.e decision he did and to the extent be did
was moved by any desire to intiuence the isition or
Judge Duly, I have no information other than that 01
the public. What did influence his action was alt
UTs t<f th?CSweeny indictment the facts are theae:
Sweeuv. Smith. Woodward and Tweed were jointly
indicted lor a conspiracy by the Grand Juiy P?P?
known as the Bedford Grand Jury In the laUof 1! 72
a motion was made by the counsel for tig ?
quash that indictment The motion wss 'ieard .
corder Hackett. It w as tuad* ou the ground that tne
Bedford Grand Jury had no Jurladiiition to tin ^i _,
and also on some other grounds not mate I ?
On the hearing of the motion it was agreed
that only the question of the jurlrd.ct.on o

thai rase, thut the Novcmbor term, 1H.1, c?f the c ourt

I se incut months, and that he was bound by that de
cision On the argument of the motion that case had

decided in a case where no opinion had been ,.V,'
uud I requested the Recorder to consult with tin - u
preme Court JudgeB and ascertain what they had really
*7 have subsequently ascertained that the Green thai
case was decided by consent, us being governed bj the
Burns case, and tnat In neither case had the Supreme
Court decided that the Bedford Grand Jury was illegal.
The same question was subsequently directly raised
before the Oyer and Terminer, Judge Danlehi, I think,
presiding, and decided adversely to the ruling ol the
Recorder. The othor ground upon which the Recorder
based his decision had never been raised by the d<
fendunt's c&uusel and hud never been arg u ed bet ore the
Recorder, and all points except that its to the Grand
Jury being expressly reserved, the Recorder had no ,
right to raise or consider any other point. He did no,
however, and also did it in very offensive terms. j
I His action in that respect was the occasion of a letter
to the New York Kw?V Mr. Henry C. Alenand my
' self I thought at the time thut the Recorder intended
liy using such language to make a covert attack upon
I those actually moving to punieh public crimes, bo lar
as any reference of personal intent to myself was c<>n
n rued the Recorder, m a letter lo me a short time
afterward disavowed it in very courteous and com
plimcntury terms, and I accepted and do accept his
statement." The matter, however, hud tins conse
,,?ecee ? In the letter I published Mr. Allen and my
self insisted that the indictment was not open to
the criticism Recorder Hackctt had seen lit to mako
upon it and avowed our intention to have a record
made up and to take a writ of error. Our letter with
that avowal appeared on the morning of the 21st De
cember. 1872. itic ia-t day of the official term of Mr.
District Attorney Garvin, whom Mr. l'belps was to sue
On tha" 31st December, 1872. Mr. Garvin moved a
nolle prosequi of the whole indictment belore Recorder
llackcti, and it way granted and entered as o! live days
preceding so as to appear to be done prior to the
publication of our letter. This was done without any
notice to or consultation with me, and in face ol the
fact that under the direction of the Attorney General,
1 had there, otore had exclusive charge of all the
so-called ring Indictments, and thut Judge Gar- :
vin had most cheertully given me the con
trol 'of them, and hod himself taken
no charge or them whatever. When thereafter, ou Mr. ,
f'helns accession to office. I was about to take a writ of |
error 1 found that the bill had lieen uol prossed, and us |
to all the defendants, that is, Sweeney. Woodward and
Tweed as well as Smith. Ol course 1 have no personal
knowledge of the antedating, but 1 investigated the
matter very fully aud thoroughly at the lime and have
no doubt of the fact. Whether the foregoing acts af
forded just ground for criticism you and your Conven
tion must decide. Truly ^FLER ? ,.ECKHAM. j
Hon John Kelly, after the conclusion of the reading
of the above, presented Ue voluminous documents
setting forth the votes cast by the present Recorder
while a member of the Board of Supervisors and a list
of his decisions that bail been reversed by the Court oT
Appeals since he had lieen on the bench. Also the ,
pi i-sentmenl made the Grand Jury, which, he claimed,
was suppressed by Mr. A. Oakey Hall at the time ho
was District Attorney.
Recorder Hackctt became a member of the Board of
Supervisors in July. 1870 by virtue ofhm_office of
Recorder His attendance during the years l?il, 18<2,
lh73 and 1874 was very irregular, never appearing ut
the meetings unions something imjiortuni was about to
transpire, it will be seen by the record that
h,- voted for a number of the fraudulent armory
lobs, notably the leas ng of premises at Ninth avenue
and Twentv seventh struc t for twelve years at arent of
$1 200 per ay oar; the premises Nog. lis to 1-H West
Thirty-Htond street lor six years at a rent alleged to be
Ave tiroes what the pr ini?es were really worth. He
also voted lor what was known as the Centro Market
armory job. by which the taxpayers were mulcted
out ot $30,000 or more, Mid which was subsequently
investigated Ity the Board, the bills for repairs alone to
tins armory, and lor which Recorder Hackett voted,
amounting to upward of $28,000 At every meeting
which he attended be voted almost invariably in tho
affirmative lor the payment of every bill brouC?
before tho Board. (Here followed a long list of votes
for the payment or the city moneys.)
Mr Hackett was appointed Recorder March 6, 1806,
there hat ing been n vacancy in the office from January
1 preceding. Although Mr Hackett wag appointed on
March 6 1*66. he claimed and received from the public
treasury over $1,160 tor the period between January 1
and March 6, l-'s, the day or his appointment He
claimed tins from the Comptroller under the pretext
tliat the salary of the Recorder was an annual salary
and that therefore he was entitled to the salary for tho
whole year, even if his appointment had been made on
December 1, 1868. This was simply preposterous. In
the twenty two months succeeding January 1, l*oo. -Mr.
Hackett, in addition to his ealury, Ac., a- Recorder, re
ceived in lees lor assisting Corporation Counsel < iG or
man $21,727 W). (The statement bore contained the
details of the fees mentioned.)
In September and October, 1868, the Citizen"
Association of New York published certain
communications directed lo .Street Commissioner
McLean directing Ins attention to certain Irregu
larities iu his office. Instead of directing the
Grand Jury to investigate these matters the Recorder
maliciously attacked those who were seeking to expose
the frauds. In pursuance of his design to deter cltl
if-DH Irom exposing the misconduct of public ofneera
he charged tho Rrand Jury at the beginning of tne
term, ou October 7, lsf>H, among other tb?iig?, a? lot
Kor some time past, and more especially within the past

Ht i n.t public officers have been published lu the ?hap# of
letters purporting to have emanated from a bodv styling
itsalf a "Citisens- Association." If the charges adverted to
hail been iiisci-putile of legal proof. then they
should have long sine* been presented lor the
consideration of a police magistrate or of a grand
jury of this cmtwty, hut they appear to have
been made on insufficient or heursny. or partisan of preju
d.i ed testlmonv. sod. therefore, they may poss.lqy become
libelous. One of the officials tlms assailed has boldly charged
over his own signature that there is prm liyully no -ueh liody
as the "Citizens' Association ;" that a tew interested per
sons prepared and fulminated the charges in question on their
Individual responsibility. Thus, on the one hand,
the so called '?Cltiaene' Association" arraigns in
dividual*. and. on the other. one indi
vidual arraign* the en-called association. In
this connection I may b* permitted to add that the ex
istetice of a star chamber, secret in meeting and trresponat

Jury as long since as the reign of l.harles II.. ami it it ho
true as charged by a communication before me, that th?

Recorder Hackett handed the presentment, among
other papers, to the clerk ol the Court Mr. Hall was
District Attorney. The presentment wits subsequently
suppressed on the ridiculous pretext that it should have
been signed also by the District Attorney. Mr. Hall
went before the Grand Jury and lectured ihem, stating,
among other things, that they hod all been guilty of
contempt of Court in presenting such a paper to the
Recorder, and Dually induced thetn to recall the
paper. Instead ol" their proceeding to investigate the
matter charged in the document sent by tiio Citizens'
Association, an effort was made bv the District Attorney
and others to indict the officers of the association for un
alleged misdemeanor in having the audacity to address
communications to the Grand Jury colling its attention
to the frauds of certain officials. Of course, this attempt
was a lamentable failure.
When the reading ol thpse documents had been con
cluded Mr. Kelly again rose from his seat and said:?
" These are my reasous w hy I will not cast my vote
for the renominatlon of Recorder Hackett. The
records show tbut through either indifference or negli
gence he was derelict in his duty and never cared to be
present in the Board of Bnpervisors unless some im
portant action was going on, and then w e find his volo
always cast in tuvor of large disbursements of
public money. Then the' record of ? his nets
and decisions in (lie Court ol General Fesstous,
1 think, speaks lor ilself. I boj>? the press will nolo
these state ments, for 1 know the editors want reform

corder llackett n fsce ol theso records wo should not
he doing our duty to the public and to our constitu
ents. 1 said 1 had no tnalico against hitn. 1 have
none. He never did me any harm. 1 don't know that
1 ever heard a disrespectful word of mo spoken
by him. I know that the people arc look
ing si tne and my associates, and if wo
do not make good nominations they have
a right to find fault. People may say I have been In
dustrious in looking up these facts, but 1 think 1 huvo
the right to do so. The press bus said ho has been a
good man. W ill it be said oi hun iu the tuture if the
press does Its duty, us it is the intention of the Con
vention to do theirs y I say, II a man is presented for
nomination not meeting with the approval of the Con
vention or any of its members I hope they
will have the manhood to gel up und say so. Some
candidates will he disappointed, hut we have a duty to
perform und cannot afford to take into consideration
personal feelings, l.ast year a man was nominated.
1 believe, out of pure friendship, who, I thought, should
not have been plured on the ticket, and you all Know
how he was defeated. I'nle.-s proper candidates ure
presented now they w ill be defeated again, and they
ought to be."
At this point Mr. D. F. Tiemann, who hud nominated
Recorder Hackett, said he withdrew his nomination.
The Committee of Conference then withdrew, a re
cess being ordered for fifteen minutes, It was, how
ever, over an hour and a quarter before they returned
to the hall, whoit tbey reported in favor of the follow
ing nominations, which were subsequently confirmed
by acclamation:?
Forjudge of the Superior Court?J. J. Friedman.
For Judge of the Court of Common Pleas?F. W.
For Recorder?Frederick Smythe.
For City Judge?J. C. Spencer.
For Surrogate?D. C. Calvin.
For Judges of Marino Court?J. P. Slnnott and F.
For District Attorney?Peter B. Olney.
Henry L. Clinton moved thiu a committee of five bo
appointed to tender the nominations to utie candidates
named and to invite their presence in the hull. Accord
ingly, a committee appointed by the Chuircscortod the
gentlemen mimed to lite plallorm, where they were in
troduced to the Convention by the Chairman, each
as he was presented addressing the assemblage
und thanking the delegates for the honor tendered
hum On motion of General McMuhon, a committee of
one front each Assembly district was appointed to con
fer with the Committee on Organization, with a view to
arranging a moss meeting lor tho endorsement and
ratlin ation of the ticket just nominated..
Mr. Dieffendorf here presented u series of resolutions
laudatory of the intentions and the results achieved by
the Convention.
Mr. Kelly then spoke of the labors being performed
by I he Committee on Crime, and said he had never
known a committee which had acted so disinterestedly
and learlessly in making any investigation. They have
shown no political furor to either side, but have
been actuated by a desire to expose the existing
condition of affairs in this city. That condition
1 think I may say is frightful, especially in the District
Attorney's office, which is a shame and a sin to the
people of the city. Ho concluded by moving u vote
of thunks to the coinmitteo.
A vote of tliaiiKs was afterward passed to Mr. John
Kelly and tho Chairman, and the Convention adjourned.
At a meeting of the Anti-Tammany democrats of the
Twenty-first Assembly district, held at their head
quartern, Free!Mini's Hall, 122d street and Second
avenue, Captain M. II. Underhill presiding, the follow
ing resolutions indorsing Recorder Hackett were
adopted, on motion of Mr. John Hart:?
Where** it U essential to the welfare of the people and
the interests of pood government that only honest and
capable person* shall be elected to office, and whereas we
recognise hi the Hon. John K. llackett, the present
Recorder of this city, an honorable and capable judp-e and a
faithful public servant, in whom the people have implicit
confidence, und who is opposed to one-man rule of Tammany

Resolved, 1 hat we recommend our delegates to the .Judicial

To the Editor op the Herald:?
Even to the pationt who inhabits a ward in that very
largo hospital devoted to crippled politicians, there is

roundings of bis former fellow patients.
Mr. John Kelly lias seen fit to attack mo in private
and public so much of late in hopes to try and injuro
my friend, Recorder Hackett, by sprinkling him with
my sins, that I am absolved from any personal or pro
fessional obligation I have hitherto had to keep silent
on the subject of the animus which instigates Mr.
John Kelly's sudden attack on tho Recorder, In his
own convention, when, of course, no ono could have
possession of facts wherewith to cross-examine or an
swer. About the year 1862 Mr. Kelly, as Sheriff,
had a claim amounting to about $20,000 against the
county of New York for fees in serving process
in suits brought by tho District Attorney
against liquor dealers. This claim was put for hun in
litigation. Mr. Hackett was then Assistant Corporation
Counsel. The then Comptroller desired the claim con
tested. It was contested. Mr. Hackett made tho
arguments at Special and General Terms for the coun
ty, nod succeeded in each pUre In defeating the claim.
In my judgment It was u just claim. What I huvo to
sa/does not turn upon the character of the claim, but
motive lor anitnas. The Court of Appeals, by a majority
vole, finally guve Mr. Kelly the fruils of the claim; but
the persistent and zealous action of Mr. Huckctt. who
with the then Comptroller believed in the injustice of
tho claim, aroused Mr. Kelly almost to the verge of
violence whenever lie would converse with me about ibat
persistent and zealous action. In vain I assured him
that I was satisfied the Assistant Corporation Countel
was not personal or vindictive, because he was also in
his action going aga nst me. who was (as Dlclrct At
torney) the nominal plaintiff in Sheriff Kelly's Inter
est. ?'n ono occasion Mr. Kelly, almost purple with
rage, declared in my office that ho would never forget
nor forgive Ass,slant C'or|>oration Counsel Hackett.
The people of New York generally aro not aware of
the natural disposition of Mr. Kelly. It is somewhat
softened by that tact which Intercourse with men has
given him. as well as by the Influences of that Church
which, in the earlier history of tho world, alone could
allay the fury ol barbaric kings?even those among tho
Franco and Germanic tribes who were born with bru
tal instincts. Yet, beneath the mastiff (ace and neck of
Mr. Kelly slumber the pasetons of hatred und revenge,
as effectually vivid to accomplish their promptings us
they were when I was a reporter and he a Fourteenth
wurd lounger on the Marion street corners.
John Kelly is a man who never forgets an Injury.
To accomplish one (I am satisfied from a twenty years'
acqunintunee with his ways, feelings and conversation,
and from the time of the eccentric canvass count which
elected him to Congress over Mike Walsh down to tho
pre--nt time when he has abdicated his Marion street
sceptre as the king of the w-nrkingman to wield a more
imperial one near the aristocratic atmosphere of Mur
ray and Hose hills)?to accomplish an injury, 1 repeat,
he* would sacrifice all great interests, und he would
choose just sucli a lime in doing his injury as would
shut off. If possible, any chance of parrying'It until the
blow had accomplished Its purpose.
It Is possible tbls statement may provoke a discus
sion between Mr Kelly or his friends and others. If it
does I shall take great pleasure in writing more of what
1 hnve learned and know concerning this prince of sham
reformers. At present my only object is to outline the
animus of the one John K. against the other John K.
