DETERMINED OPPOSITION TO THE LAW?A DISCRIMINATION IN RATES AGAINST WISCONSIN. Milwadrkn, Feb. 11, 1870. Very strong opposition is organising against the proposed modifications of the famous, or infamous, Potter law, with me expectation of securing favors for this tcity and other principal potDts In Wisconsin, now said to be discriminated against in favor ot Chicago by the Northwestern and St Paul railroads. The Northwestern is engaged in engineering a bill through tbo Legislature granting it TOO ffeet of land to be taken from Lake Michigan, along the entire water front of this city, for the sum of $40,000, and the Milwaukee agitators cry out that unless both the Northwestern and St Paul roads reduce their rales at least $10 per car on all freight from nninta in triors Wisconsin and Minnesota to Milwaukee and Eastern Wisconsin points below the rates to Chicago, they will torm a strong lobby, not only to defeat this lako front bill, but to prevent the proposed modifications of the Potter law being carried into effect. As the men controlling this movement are accustomed to lobbying work of this kind, and probably bave personal ends to serve in the matter, it cannot be denied that the improvement in the railroad laws of Wisconsin, so anxiously looked for and so nearly accomplished, is once more In grave peril.

MAJOR GRIMES' TESTIMONY. The Private Secretary's Efforts to Influence Commissioner Douglass. Story of the Famous Transfer Order ana us revocation. DOCUMENTS IN RESERVE. Important Indictments in Chicago and New Orleans. Sr. Louis, Mo., Fob. It, 1876. The proceedings to-day wore tor the first Ume spiced with humor and bauter. The evidence was tho strongest yet given against the defendant, and it required no great physiognomist to seo that the Jury were impressed with its gravity. Uobcock bore himself with greater nonchalance than on any provlons day, and at one point burst even into a isugb, quickly concealing, however, the facial contortion behind his hand. Tho first witness, Major Grimos, of the Quartermaster's Department, was a living and eloquent witness to the excellence of its provisions. His taco is so fat and red that it would scorn about to burst with the good viands stulTod within. His testimony as to THH TURKS 8bckkt lkttkrs from Babeock, which ho handed to McDonald alter the letter's Indictment, was evidoutiy unwillingly given, for, as ho confossed on tho staud, he Is a friend and crony of the defendant. The prosecution in the closing argument will make a great point on this testimony, and claim that this secret correspondence between DaheAolr ani4 MpHnnalH nt trtv Ilia inHlolmanl rv# ?ho " UWV1 "" """"'"I ... . *"? ...U.VVU.CU. V/. ?! <latter, conclusively proved the deiondant's complicity. Thoy will also argue that these throe lettors should be produced by the defence If their contents were really Innocent Ktorrs' question, whether McDonald had not Infbrmed Grimes that Babcock was not in tho Ring, produced a titter, which broadonod tnto laughter when Dyer asked the witness whether McDonald had not also informed him that he (McDonald) was also not in the Ring, and Major Grimes answered this question affirmatively. DINING AND WINING AND BSIUINO. The next important witness formed the most striking contrast to the rotund and blooming Major. Deputy Commissioner Rogers is a little, dry man, with a pule, weaxeued ftice, of a dead complexion and sunken, tiny optics. He gave his testimony standing and with olasped hands, as though he were in a do vottonal attitude. Colonel Brodhead all the morning kept an unlighted cigar in his mouth, the end of which he chewed with great apparent gusto. After Rogers cumo ax-Commissioner Douglass, a heavy, largo man, with a frosh, ruddy and decidedly good-natured face, and scant hair streaked with silver covering a very largo head. When Douglass testified that Draslxar, one of the revenue agents whom he had sont to St. Louis to Investigate the frauds, complained of Joyce's excessivo attention in dining and wining him, as having Interfered with bis duties, Babcock gave a broad smile, and it was when Storrs asked Douglass on the cross-examination whether Brashier also complained .t.. i.-iyw, ~r rxm o.-ith uiIhaK Ii,,j bim off, ibat tho defendant laughed outright. It AYS or Pl.KASANTRT. The roading of tho numerous offlcial and private despatches between McDonald and Joyce and Babcock and Douglass and Rogers gave rise to a good dual of bantor between the counsel. Uofore Colonel Dyer could read them he had to pass them to the defendant's counsel for Inspection. Some of Joyce's sycophantic and pompous desi>atchos to Douglass?as, for Instance, where he says he "will be pleased to serve tne honorable Commissioner anywhere," meaning he was ready to go to San Francisco as orderod?and his and McDonald's serio-comical resignations when they found that their villany had been dragged to the light, called a smile even to the grove faces of the Judges and kept the audience, jury and lawyers in good humor. Storrs declared, with dry satire, that llie prosecution was making out a very strong case against McDonald. Tho threat which Babcock wanted to send West with a revenue agent also caused amusement. TUB SJK.'RKT OORKBHrONDBBCB. The first wilnoss called was Major E. B. Grimes, Depot Quartermaster in the United Slates army stationed at St. Louis. Major Grimes was introduced by the prosecution to show that General Babcock carried on a correspondence with McDonald last fall whilo tbc latter was under Indictment for complicity in the whiskey frauds. Major Grimet said:?I have been in the army since September, 18tK, 1 know General Babcock, ' having met him first in 1802 in Utah when 1 was District Quartermaster; I saw General Babcock when bo was here last fall, probably in Sep teniber, Just boforo fair lime, with the 1'resideniial partv; ho said to mo that he would probably want to ' send some letters or packages through me to other parlies; he did not say to whom; after that he sent 1 tbreo letters to me, and I recollect?that is, I suppose?he sent them; I got s letter addressed to myself, with another letter in it; that was a short time alter l j ' saw General Babcock here; tho letter enclosed in mine was in a white envelope, sealed and marked "McDonald;" tho note to me In the first letter was simply, "Fleaso dollvor tho | enclosed letter to MeDouald, 'and it was signed "O. K. Babcock;" I gave the enclosed to McDonald, 1 think ' at my office; a week or ten days later I received another letter through tho post office directed tome; thoro was no note in it, but un envelope, addressed in ! a different hand Irorn that of the first, to McDonald; | < there was no note to me, but there was a piece of paper wrapped around the envelope; the third letter was Just like the second; I dclivored all throe of these letters to I McDonald; wb' ii one of them raiuo lie was not here, I 1 and In trying to find him 1 met his brother in-law, Tom Walsh, and told him, but 1 don't know what Walsh ! did. n'n/i?ii n fi* RtnfVirr ! On the cross-examination Major Grimes said he had known General Babcuck personally and intimately, anil that the latter bad been a good friend to hint. On one occasion when McDonald and McKce were reported to be using tlietr influence to hava him re- i moved because he would not put a man in the place tbut ibey wanted, Babcock promised bia Influence to preveut the removal. Witncaa in tbe course ot bis cross-examination said, ' Once when I delivered these 1 letters to McDonald I asked him (McDonald), Did Babcock have anything to do with this Whiskey Ring? and ho said, 'Grimes, I don't know; don't believe lie knows any more about it tban you do, and you know you don't know anything about it.' " On tbe redirect examination. Major Grimes was asked, "Did McDonald in thai conversation say that ho, himself, didn't know anything about tbe Whiskey King ?" Witness?Yos, he did. (Laughter.) District Attorney?How did you come to ask If Babcock had anything to do with the Whiskey King? Witness?I asked lor tho simple reason thai If Bab- | cock, who bad been my friend, had had anything to do with It I was going to drop bini. District Attorney?Wbst reason had you to inspect the gentleman? Witness?Nothing but tbe fact of tbe letlors sent through trie. Ma|or Grimes was followed bv B H. Engelke, tho rectifier, who gave an account of bis operations, referring particularly to amounts of money raised by the distillers and rectifiers lor revenue agents to keep ibem still and to obtain information from thant, all ol which has been repeatedly told. Tbe witness also testified to having seen, in whole or parts, telegrams, or what purported to be telegram*. In the hands ot Joyce, Informing him of contemplated visits ot revonuo officer*, Witness always straightened up his house on such occasions. and it almost always happened that agents came out after information of their coming had been rocoived. Tilt nttPCTT mtvgmr* commissiomkr. H. C. Bogers, Deputy Commissioner of Internal i Revenue, was then called, and testified that In August, 1874, Mr. Douglass, at that lime Commissioner, asked him to correspond with Revenue Agent Brooks in re gurd to making an Investigation of ariuirs at inn ago and St. l.oma, witness wrote to Brooks, who cam. 10 Washington for oon?ultation; hr. Brooks wished Revenue Agent Hogs to asslet bim; be wan written to, and j alter considerable delay be came to Washington, then wont to Philadelphia to cooler with Brooks; tbty returned to Washington together and alter several days left again; witness aald about the Tlh of December General McDonald came to bla room and stayed but a few minuton; the next day he came in and said, "Kogers, I don't want you to tell me anything, but I want to tall you something, Brooks and lloge are going to 8t. Louis on special business, and I protest ugainet such secret investigations; if the officers there are lit to be in office tbey need no invesligaIton; If they are not they ought to be removed;" 1 then telegraphed to Brooke to delay the investigation , W. 0. Avery was at that time chiel elerk of the Internal Revenue Bureau; I received letters about that time from Mr. Brooka, all the letters were addressed to me per- j tonally, as I intended to deetroy the onrre- , spondence, it not being of nature I wanted to go on Um higsu ut Via latter out of I KCTARY 12, 1876.?WITH g November I received a lett?r from Brooka; It referred to the oout?jnplato<1 Investigations Wont, end said t something about tho delays being profitable to the government and satisfactory to ourselves; Mr. Douglass, the Commissioner, showed me a copy of the letter In his own baud writing; I think Mr. Douglass said his at- T lentloo had been called to certain objectiouable expressions in the letter, and be was cautioned to beware a ol" persons who used such expressions; shortly afl'-r : 1' this Mr. pouglssg inlortuod me that wo would abandon I the investigation. fl Witness was briefly cross examined, but notbtng new a brought out. J.- W. Douglass. cx-Commlsslonerorintern&l Revenue, g was next put on tho stand and said:?During 1873, 1874 and 1876 there were efforts constantly made to ferret T out the frauds thai were being purpetrated; several revenue agonts were sent to St. Louie in 1872, but 1 recoived uo definite information from them; later Brooks and Hoge were sent out, especially to look into Bevis and t'razler's afi'atrs, and that firm paid the T government (40,000 as a compromise; when I sent Joyce to California it was to get him out of the wajr 01 of the agents whom I nenl here and who complained di at an excessive attention on his part, wlniug and dining them, so they could not do any work; McDon- r? aid and Joyce never came to see me much whon they were In Washington; 1 had a conversation with Mr. Ti Rogers in regard to the Investigations iu tho West. kaiicock's 1ntkufkrknxx. d I remember showing him a copy of a letter received ri between the loth and 15th ol December, written by ei Brooks, saying that tho delay would prove equally g profitable to the government and gratifying to our- s< selves, or something of that kind; the copy of tbe letter was shown to me at the White House by General Babcock; ho said a gentloman had Bhown it to him J and ha was atraid I was being deceived by those men; ] he said be would hold me responsible for tueir conduct; 1 I told him that 1 bad great confluence In the men; ho s said, "What might a sensitive man like Logan say if he saw that letter f" Babcock told me that tho letter had been given to him confidentially, and requested me not to aay whero 1 received It from; after the visit u ot McDonald to Washington I romember coming out of ci my house one day, whon 1 met Babcock, and wo talked it about St. Louis matters; 1 cannot Bay exactly what was ci said; we talked about revenue agents coming here: once, in 1874, Dabcock came to my office, and wo talked g; about the supposed charges against Kurd, who was b dead at tho tlmo; 1 told htm there were no charges against Ford, that the charges I was getting up were |( against tho living; he asked what examination had 0 been made, and said something about blackening tho t, memory of Ford, tho only way a man's memory could be blackened who was dead was by un examination; o afterward Babcock came to sec me about sending a bird?a thrush, I think?out West; ho only camo to my pj office one* or twico altogether that I remember; () some two or threo months before Richardson went ti out of office I had a talk with ths President and told him things were crooked In St. Louis, and I thought if y, a proper investigation was mado it would result largely * to the benefit of ths Treasury ; he concurred with me, and asked when I was going to begin; on tho 25th of January, ,1875, I addressed a loiter to the Secretary of the Treasury in regard to the change of supervisors; the rumors of Irauds, beginning In 1872, caused me to write this letter; afterward .Secretary Bnstow came t' into the oifice, and wo talked tho matter over, conclud- j.

By referring to this curious ncumcnt it will be seen that not only was It so sr mged that lha words nboald be sent In a peculiar or- 1 Br, but even the spelling was by a peculiar system. 1 he word "Arkansas" is given as a specimen of tho a rtiiography, thus:? Arkansas 12346076 I btnosyha u According to this system the first letter of the alphaid arter tho letter beginning tho word is used; that is 1 i say, A in "Arkansas" would be indicated by the let- 1 sr h. In the sumo way tho second letter is indicated by le second loiter of tho nlphabot after the second letter I tho word, the third after tho third, and so on.
