President Tracj- and Acting Secretary Toner, ot Columbia Typographical Union, have been busy getting together material by whieti to straighten out the accouuts otk Frank It. Padgett.

Mr. Tracy went to Baltimore yesterday, u try to get from him a clue by -which the safes may bo opened, lie had not rclurneil at mid ulght. The desks in Secretary Padgett's office, when forced open, were found to contain a large quautity of ftub books In a con dition of such ulter confusion as to make them useless to any one but Padgett himself. Scattered about were a number of unopened letters, borne addressed to Padgett aud others to various parties In his care, many of them contained money. Borne of these unopened lclU-rs are postmarked as far backos July IS, almost three months ago, 'which Indicates that his mental condition at. that time was fcuch as lo unfit him for the transaction of business. From the fact that but $9 is found to be on deposit and the indications that no work has been done Bpoa the books for more than Uirce months, the amount of Mr. Padgett's shortage, if there is one. is placed at from $1.0CO to 3,000, the formt'r figure being the average col lection for one month. Tills estimate may be greatly changed, or the defalcation entlrclr dissipated by the dlsccrvery of unknown deposits or expenditures, when the books have been examined.

Tne services every evening consist of a sermon by Mr. Potter who discu&ses the gospil from the standpoint of a business man, and a sermon in song by Mr. Miller, who iu a moot interesting and delightful way tells of the love of Christ fur man.

The court ordered thedefecdant'scounsel, Mr. Thomas C Taylor, to investigate. cntaln charges, however, and If tbey are found true the verdclt will lie set aside. Miller was accused ot break I rg into the -table of John W. Miller. There was noth ing in the stable. It was claimed, and noth ing was taken. Charles said hesimpjy went thero to sleep. "BUI you not servo a three years' sen tence in the !cnltentlary under tho alias of Charles Boss, for housebreaking?" asked Proteoutlng Attorney Jeffords. "No, sir," replied Miller. Officer Brenueman was called and testi fied that Miller had been convicted and sent to Albany. Fountain Peyton, a col ored attorney, testified the same way. Mr. Taylor then called on Attorneys Coomes and Shlllington, who defended Boss In his suit. Both of the lawyers said they could not swear that Miller had lieen boss. James Springmau, keeper of the prison ers' quarters at the city balk was called, and ho swore that Miller was not Buss. The case went to the Jury, with the above result. Lawyer Taylor says he will be able to prove that Miller Isn't Boss, and the dis trict attorneys say tbey can prove be is Boss.

GOING HOME TO VOTE. New York DemoerntK lu the Depart- nient!MfcinRThelrArmiiKcmeMs. "Wu'llgo to Indlanaonc better," was the key note ot the meeting held last night by IheNcw York Democrats "of Washington," at the Interstate Democratic Association headquarters No. 1328 New York avenue. The meeting was one of the largest as semblages of New York Democrats ever htld here, the eight departments aud the Government Printing Office being largely represented. - The last clay for registration In New York, outside ot the rural districts and New York and Brooklyii. is the 19th of tills month, and the local Democrats hail ing from that State are bestirring them selves to be there and to get there on elec tion day. The purpose of the meeting was to make arrangements for the transportation to their homes of the voters who wish to reg ister and take part in ttie coming elec tion in New York. To carry out this purpose nine com mittees were appointed to take charge of the details, the securing of rates, and notification of the committees in charge at the various precincts In New York of the coming of the reinforcements. The chairman declined to give out the names of the committees. While there were no set speeches the dis cussion was none the less enthusiastic. The members areconfldent of carrying Hie State this time and all the time. One of the officers said to The Times last night that theactionofsomeoftheDemocraticbretlrren in the last election could be characterized by no other name better than "bilious," but that the recalcitrants had all recovered from that attack, and that they would all move forward this time In solid phalanx. Another said thatthcy had foil knowledge of the importance of the coming fight and that he would not be surprised to see as many of the employes go home to vote as go home in Presidential elections. A thorough canvass of all the possible votes is already under way and the work Is to be prosecuted vigorously until the last man anawerB to the roll call. The president of the meeting wasMr.W.P. Smith, of the Government Printing Office, and the secretary Mr. C. S. Hawley, also of that department. There is no doubt from the temper of these Democrats, that it will not be their fault if they don't get even with the "Republicans this time In New York and slightly more than even say about sixty or seventy thousand majority.
