Ben B. Groome engaged hisi to argue
of it, sayirg his firm were engaged in
stock-raisiurf, aud Had invested much
money in the purchase of mules, but
owing to the conapse of the rebellion the
government refused to take the animals.
In consequence of thin the firm had sus
tained a Heavy les?, havine invested two
bundled thousand dollars oa account of
the purchase. Oroorrte said they would
pay him no fee if thw7 did hot succeed
in iifccOring the payment of the claim,
ani? at fcll events they would pay him
only a Mnall fee. The secretary said t
uroome it ws not rats nfibit to accent
contingent feea, but in viejv nf the di
lemma in wlUi-n trim urm iound them-
Btlve Rhrt desired to have his profes
sional services, he eaid he would argue
the case before the court of claims or bo
fore the supremo court, if it should go
there, on Groome azreein to him ex
penses Incurred In CominK here, and
compensation of ten per cent, in th

Fuller, a leiit'eat solicitor in
Wellington, foimeily a member
cf congress, and who was auditor
of the comptroller under ?'uchaiian'a
administration 'SreDared tne naners.
Tho efceretary toofe Fuller's brief of the
case and on that brief he prepared his
legal argument, me only question
raised there was on points of law- Mr.
Gafortb, the Rsiatantattorney general,
made no question as lo the facts, which
seemed to be Conclusive. The facta
weret The Mrm had the uiuiea at nroner
points to be thipptd, and some of them
were on the train at the time the gov
ernment efu-el to take them. There
waf, es a ccn equence, a fcuddea depre
ciation in tho value of the mules, and
the low piictft at whifh they were com
pelled to Sail tt&ta waS incontrovertible.
Ohltl Justice Srake, who dissented, did
so only on a question of law. There
were involved in the case two intgiest
ing questions of law. The uuj rity of
the court gave judgment far 108,759.
The secretary believed then, aud now
believes, that the judgment wss right.
The case was argued by him in October,
1-S73, and judgment was rendered Janu
ary 5, 1874 The ca3e had been refenbd
to the court of elaluiB by the war depart
ment, and payment wss made from the
fund under the control of that depart
ment. The secretary had nothing more
to do with the case tLaa to arguo it be
fore the court of claims. Groome va'd
hini aa his feo S10.870. The secretary
eaid that since the publication in the
Hcra'd he had procured the papers on
wnich the payment was made, which
he read to the committee. One of the
papers showed that Attorney-General
WilliamB itf rmed the secretary cf war
that no appeal would ba taken from the
Judgment of the court of claims to the
supreme court. The money was paid to
John A. Thompson, BenB. Groome and
others. The secretary repeated tnat he
engaged in the case only professionally,
for which he received pay as already
stated. What compensation Fuller re
ceived he did not know. The statement
that the secretary received half e f the
claim was unqualifiedly false. He re
peated that the claim impre-fsed him
with its baing meritorious and just.
Secretary Bristow, on cross-examination,
repeated tbat at the time he argued
the case he had no connection whatever
with the government, having befcrd re
signed the office of solicitor-general. He
did not regard the fee of ton per cent, as
unuaut-1 He had been told the fee was
not up to the uhi1 maximum. In con
clusion the secretary intimated that he
would be very glad if the committee
could undertake to ascertain how such
stories as that in the Herald obtained
such circulation. The chairman replied
that they culd not undertake such
work at this time, but they would be
happy during this examination to have
such information disclosed, aud would
be glad to have the secretary's co-operation
in this or any other such case. Sec
retary Bristow said that since the publi
cation of the letter in the Herald, he had
made inquiiy and ascertained that
Groome, who is a stock-raiser aud im
porter of Hooded stock, is now abroad.
The secretary tbeu retired, and the com
mittee took a recesp.

Mr. Dana both of literary piracy and of
perjury, in swearing falsely that he had

Dana, in substituting his name for mine,
was paid as a stipendiary e litor. More

respective offices and box renter by which
a saving of threeorfour hundred thou

Important Decision. I
Washington, March 20 TheUiiited j

the decision tt the Cvlifornia supreme
court In the so-called Chlnere ess?, and
orderir.g the woman Coy Lung to be
released from custody, in which she has
Lesn held under the foreign passenger
act ot that State. This decision sustains
the ruling made by Justice Field in
Pituilar cases brought I efore him in the
United States circuit coutt. The supreme
court accompanies its decision with a
severe criticism of the law of California
on this fubjscr. A decision was aIo
icndered in the eare involving the con

Washington, March 20. t'arlow
Sanderson, mall contractors aud stage
pr -prietorp, say that the testimony of
.Vm. A. Ddnforth, of Chicago, befora
who house committee dn postofUces and
post-reads, charging their firm with
using money of the postcfllse depart
ment, and with having burned up their
b?oks to cover improper transactions, Is
fake and malicious. Barlow alleges that
the firm ba9 been systematically black
mailed for years, and says he intends to
produce his books.
Bradley .Barlow, of the firm of Bar
low & Sanderson, was again under ex
amination by Jtha house postal-committee
to-day. He testiiSed that the firm
bad, in several instances, lUst year
bought of the lower bidders for mail
contracts in order to obtain them at the
firm's higher figures, but denied that
any money had everbeeDpaid or loaned
by him or hi3 partners to any official in
the postofflce department. He admitted
that ho had loaned considerable sum?,
not exceeding twenty thousand dollars
In the aggregate, to General Morgan L.
Smith, brother of Giles A. Smith, then
eecond assistant postmaster-general, bat
swore that these loans were not made
for the purpose of influqnciqg the latter.
He gave some details ahowifirj how the
firm had secured certain valuable con
tracts last year. He paid to G aot Tat
gart, of California; to Corbett & Bsek
man, of Oregon, and to a Mr. Blanchard
several thousand dollars to withdraw
their bids for the service between Rid
ding, California, and Roseburg, Oregon;
and that he paid to Governor Thomp
son, of Idaho, ten thousand dollars for
relinquishing his lower bid on the long
route from Dallas, Oregon, to Kenton,
Utah.
At the afternoon sjssion of the house
the po3toflice committee, Barlow sworo
that he never made any improper
Suggestion to any government ollijial,
and n6ver asked or expected any man
to whom be gave or loaned money to
convey such suggestion to a government
official. He had employed Mr. Earl ttf
act as an attorney for him before the de
partment during his absence frbiB
Washington. He admitted the fact
that Earl had formerly been a law-partner
of Poatmaster-General Cresswell,
and partly influenced him in making
his selection of that attorney on account
of the latter'fa facility of access to Cress
well, and hia ability to obtain informa
tion affecting his interest, but he paid
him less than five thousand dollars in all
for hia services. His employment com
menced after be ceased to hold the office
of assiataut-postmaster-general.
H L. Johnson, chief cf the lock-and-bag
division, testified that several years
ego a contract was awarded to Mix &
Co. to furnisn locks, and that after they
employed Ex-Assktant Postmaster-General
Earl as their attorney, they secured
increase in price, which amounted during
the term of their contract and its exten
sion to thirty thousand dollars addition
al expenditures by the governmeaf. He
said the price was increased on the basis
of certain changes and improvements.
Additional Depositories.
Washington, March 20 The bill to
titil ze the products of gold and silver
mooey in the United State?, introduced
by Mr. Banks, provides that the secre
tary of tho treasury shall establish in
the great mining districts of gold and
silver additional depositories aud refine
ries, and receive from the miners and
owers gold and silver to be coined, upon
the certificate of the government a-
sayer, and issue certificates of deposit
therejr, payable to bearer, and for such
sums as depositors may dojire; and
when issued for mere than five hundred
dollars iu one certificate may be made
payable to order. Each certificate shall
promise the return of the amount of
gold and silver called for by such ceitifi
cate, and shall be a legal-tender iu all
trantactions. Thegovernment is to be
liable for the safe-keeping of the gold
aud silver, and may become the owner
thereof by obtaining the certificate
throuzh purchase or redemption. The
secretary is also authorized to issue
similar full value certificates on coin
that is now or may hereafter bo in the
trea;ury, reserving coin for their re
demption.

Secretary Bristow and Ex-Speaker
Blaine have accepted the invitation of
the committee of arrangements to be
present at the semi-centennial celebra
tion of the Wesieyan seminary, at wu
braham, Massachusetts, on the twenty-
first of June.
Representative Payne, if an opportu-
nlty had bsen presented to-day, would
have introduced in the house the caucus
financial bill. A Democratic opponent
of the measure says tbat ir the Lill had
been presented, aud a vote taken, a ma
jority of the house would have voted
against it.
It having been charged that the con
fidential latter of the attorney-general to
the district attorneys pending tho whis
ky trials met with the approval of the
President, it is authoritatively denied
that the President ever saw the letter
until it appeared in print.
