Apparently they did not regard the
acceptance of speculative shares on
such terms as consistent with their

There is euflicient evidsnce to show
thft Messrs. Girlaud, Harris, John

knew what the Hchetne involved. On
February;!, 183 Senator Harris saw
'no impropriety iu centlomen holding
olti"ial p ig.tonfi as Atktus and myself
do, becoming iute-tatod in an enter
prise such as you eucgoat." Mr. At-

Appropriations Committee of the
House of Representatives. Ia the
.filming December he was a Demo

the lIoue and was defeated by the
change of a single vote after the roll
had been culled. A pamphlet pre
pared by Dr. J. W Kogere, which was
in the bandi of the persons interested,
at the dutd mentioned, Bet forth fully
the nature and scope of the en

a genera! telephone and tele

to your readers. I have been for sev

Harris Rogers, the inventor of "The
National Secret Telephone" and of the
"Pan-E'ectnc Teiepnone" systems
and had been for a loug time anxious
to have a suit brought oy the govern

cancel their patent, which claimed
"the art of telephony," known to
have been invented by Philin Reias ol
Germany. Three years ago I donated
t Mr. Garland '$500 000 stock in the
original Pan-Electric Comnany, which
carnes witti it too ) two in the Pan-
Electric Company and 1500 000 in the
Pan-Electric Teiepho'ie, making in all
1 500000 (one million, live Hundred
thousand dollars) stock in the corona

undnratanding that he and othtr

Garland being indebted to me not
only for his $ 1,600,000 stock, but for
my efforts in getting him appointed
Attorney-uenerai, I Degan to leel that
he was not inclined to reciprocate t e
favors I had done him ; but to relieve
him in a measure of the delicacy re
ferred ti, 1 1 prevailed (t'irough

with Mr. Goode. Assistant Attorney

to suspend operations. Lacy furnace,
