Would Sinn That Ballot Box Con - tract, According to Sherman. 4TEE SENATOE UPON THE STAKD. .He Grows Indignant as He Talks of the ow Famous Forgery. "MUEAT HALSTEAD TELLS HIS STORT. JH Insists That the Gora-nor and Himself Wen Completely Decelted. Senator Sherman appeared before the bal lot box investicatlnt: committee yesterday. He stated that member of Congress who would sign sueh a docnment would be a fool ai well as a criminal. Halstead related the history of his connection with the forged contract. Washington, February 6. Two star witnesses, Senator Sherman and Hurat Halstead, appeared before the ballot box investigating committee to-day. Their testimony, while not of a sensational order, developed many interesting features. Jur. Sherman said he did not receive any inquiry before September 28 from Governor For aker or Mr. Halstead, as to whether he had been a party to a ballot box contract On October 8, "got from the Evening JPorf, of Cincinnati, a telegram saying he (witness) and Butterworth had been connected by gossip with the ballot box contract "Wit ness replied that the statement was a lie and any subscription was a forgery. "Witness was shown Exhibit A, and de clared that he bad never signed it Saw it first when it was sent to bim in November by Mr. Halstead. Tbe signature was a copy ot his rubber frank stamp, and not an imi tation of his signature. Did not think the McKinley signature looked like a genuine signature, but did not profess to be an ex pert on signatures, and might take the But terworth signature as genuine il there was nothing to call it in question. His own signature on the paper would naturally raise a question and excite wonder why he had contracted to pay money to John Mc Lean. A POINTED STATEMENT. Then the naper showed that the signers bad committed a crime. In addition they would seem to be fools, tor the United States had never bought a ballot box. (He was one of those who thought that the United States should, however, regulate the elec tion of Representatives.) All of these things should raise a question as to the authenticity of the paper. Witness never heard or knew of a bal lot box contract and never heard of the Campbell bill before Governor Foraker's Music Hall speech. Mr. Halstead called upon witness after the recantation, and witness asked whether his name was on the paper. Mr. Hal stead hesitatingly replied that he had agreed with Mr. Campbell not to sav anything about tbe paper. After 'the election, witness called upon Mr. Halstead to make a fair statement ot the whole matter. Mr. Halstead, in reply on November 11, said he had anticipated his advice, and sent the original for his amnsement He wrote that it occurred to him that he had been under the impression that witness bad signed the letter. He hoped he had heard the last of it, but feared he would not for some time. In conclusion he wrote: "I thought you might have the curiosity to see the uaper." Laughter, in which Mr. Halstead joined. Witness never mentioned tbe paper in the campaign, but it became an issue between Governor Foraker and Mr. Campbell. In answer to Mr. Turner, witness said if the signatures on each were attached to a recommendation, they would not excite sus picion in the ordinary mind, bnt if they con cerned a draft for 55,000 or 510,000 they would; it depended on the character ot the paper. MUBAT HALSTEAD'S STOBY. After identilying the ballot-box paper, Mr. Halstead said he had first seen it on September 14, on the cars at Springfield, O. He met Governor Foraker on the train, and the Governor showed him the paper which he had obtained from "Wood. The witness asked Governor Foraker how he obtained the paper, and the latter replied thatB. G. Wood had given it to him. They had some conversation previous to this about Wood, and the latter's offer to get the paper. To Mr. Halstead's question as to where Wood got the paper. Governor Foraker replied: "It came right out of John McLean's safe." "How was that?" asked the witness, and he was told that Wood was a party to the ballot box transaction and had a right to the paper. The Governor told the witness that the paper shocked him, and that it was ranch more than he wanted. While Gover nor Foraker went forward in the train, the witness studied the paper. He thought that there were reasons why a person should at tach some credit to the paper. Witness said he told Governor Foraker that in his judgment it certainly connected Campbell with a questionable transaction, and should not be concealed. He also said that he was exasperated at the idea that Mc Kinlev, Butterworth and the others, were connected with the matter; that he thought he would explode it under them, and that under whatever delusion others might have signed this paper, Mr. Campbell certainly knew all about it, for he had introduced the bill. THE OBIOIN OP THE POBGEBY. Mr. Halstead explained to the committee hU theory of the forgery and Wood's mo. tlve in getting up the paper. The motive, he believed, was Wood's extreme anxiety to get hold of the Smoke Inspectorship. He was certain that the paper was never in tended to hurt anyone. It was utterly pre posterous to think that Governor Foiaker had any knowledge that there was any forgery He was certain that Wood bad put Senator Sherman's name to the paper to keep Governor Foraker from using it during the campaien. The witness published an editorial card warning Mr. Campbell that be was con cerned in a questionable transaction, "and then," said Mr. Halstead, "I wasn't able to hold it back, and the paper got out earlier tban I intended." The witness said he was rather staggered at Sedator Sherman's de nial of anv knowledge of the paper. Governor Foraker had cautioned him to be careful ot tbe paper, as it would throw tbe party into confusion if ail of it got out fcThe way the rumor got out that there were other names than Campbell's on the paper 'was that Jordan intimated as much in some very unpleasant speeches. A PEBTINENT QUESTION. Mr. Cogswell asked why witness 'did not Verify the character of the paper by Sher man and Mr. Butterworth. He replied that Mr. Butterworth was not in the country, or had just landed, and Senator Sherman was in Washington. He recalled the sayingthatyon could get a member of Congress to sign a petition to get himself hanged. It was not a pleasant matter to put a finger upon a sore spot like that. The publication had been forced by cir cumstances beyond bis control, so he did not consult tbe signers. Tbe logic of the ballot box bill was that somewhere there was an adjustment by which tbe people interested could get their earnings. Then Wood had said to a witness yet to comehere that there was an original paper. Witness, however, knew of no such paper. Turner inquired If witness had suggested to Governor Foraker tbe suppression of the other names, and he replied that he had spoken to the effect that tbe paper could be used to connect Campbell and McLean with the matter. Mr. Turner asked if witness had not been moved by political considerations rather than moral and patriotic considera tions. CAMPBELL POOLED THEM. He replied that he had not; that he did not disassociate politics and morality, and that this was a proper use to make of the paper. He admitted that they conld not draw Campbell in and out as they tried to do. "The fact is," said he, "he turned out a more difficult person, than wethoueht Mr. Turner-asked: "Then if the Governor had succeeded in getting Campbell drawn into a corner, you were to stand at the head of the cannon and touch it off?" "2fo, sir. I did not intend to stand at the head of the cannon, but I got there. Great laughter. Mr. Turner wanted to know why witness had characterized Wood as a fraud on Sep tember 28. He replied that Wood did not commend himself to approbation. Mr. Turner remarked that he was willing to fight Campbell on Wood's material. Wit ness replied that the character or his material seemed to be all right bnt he did not fancy Wood's methods of getting the papers. His course had been a piece of treachery to his employers and associates. NOT EXACTLY BBOTHEKS. Continuing, he said that tliere was sup posed to be feeling between Senator Sher man and Governor Foraker growing out of events at the Chicago Convention. Ohio contained more than her share of distin guished men, and there was necessary fric tion where they are so crowded. The deli cate relations existing between Senator Sherman and Governor Foraker made it highly inexpedient to allow a paper to get out through Governor Foraker's agency that reflected on the Senator. It would have been fatal to the party. The Governor had been very considerate of Messrs. Butter worth and Sherman. "What was your relation to them queried Mr. Turner. 1 was weir oia menu, ibp"u vus witness. Laughter. Continuing, the witness said that he had known of a great many calamities befalling public men. He believed that if the members had signed the paper they should be put to the sword. He had no knowledge connecting any member of Congress with any corrupt act or job in relation to the ballot box matter. He had not rested upon Woods word, but had been guided in his action by the internal evi dence of the paper a document far beyond Mr. Wood's ability to produce. ONE INTERESTING FEATURE. Governor Foraker had called attention to the three blanks on tbe paper, and witness had said: "Johnny (McLean) is a smart boy, sure enough; he is not going to put his name on the paper until the money is on the table for division, and those blanks are here for his name when the divide is made." He had never contemplated a rivalry for the Benatorship between himself, McKinley and Butterworth. He believed, and had the evidence, that from the beginning Governor Foraker had been fooled as he (witness) had been. "We assisted each other," said the witness as he concluded his testimony. TROUBLES IN TROOPS. A Sural Town Torn Dp Over the Liquor Question, Bad Street and Other Things A Test Case Brine Anxiously Watched Gossip That Baa an Ugly Soond. Coraopolis is generally opposed to the whisky trade. On the 16th of June its vote to insert the prohibitory amendment in the Constitution was 99 for to 16 against, and the temperance people congratulated them selves that though sin, sorrow and death might gain a foothold, there was no danger to tear from "the rum power." They were further fortified in their belier by a tradition that at some time in tbe dim past ther had been legislation malung Moon township a pro hibitory distric There was some nervousness exhibited to know whether the making of Coraopolis a borough would render that law nugatory, bnt the general impression was that It would carry with it the prohibitory legisla tion. 'Squire Ferree is qnoted as authority lor tbe statement that in 1831 Moon township was made a prohibitory district It seems the question will be determined ere long. A man named Figley is said to have ap plied for license to sell in Coraopolis. and a man named Manor for one to sell in the town ship, and some people are up in arms, contend ing that the drugstores keep sufficient liquor for medical purposes in that section. The streets of Coraopolis are in frightful condition, and as they are the platform on which savage electors insist Councilmen must run at the approaching election, candidates are laying in a stock ot gam boots lor therace. Borne members ot the Junior Order United American Mechanics are also worked up over a report that their treasury is not in the best pos siiiia rendition, thnurii dues have been paid in promptly, and some of them said the matter would be inquired into at next meeting. The talk so far is not very loud. A FINE STAGE OP WATfX General Freighting Brisk and Considerable Coal Going- Out. There Is no animation of consequence shown in the coal trade on this rise, but there will be a considerable quantity shipped. There was 12 feet of water in the channel yesterday, and the Joseph Walton took six boats as a starter, intending to return for the remainder or her tow. Tbe Smoky City, John Penny, Fred Wil son, Charley Brown and Raymond Horner were preparing to go out also. The freighters continue to do a good busi ness, and their work has greatly relieved the freight blockade by the assistance given tbe railways, bnt it seems a pity that so much water should run to waste. It is sngested that some day tho power of the rivers will be util ized in the generation of sufficient electricity to run all the rolling mills and manufactories in the city. ANOTHER KAILR0ADLR HEBE. The Qncen nnd Crescent Will Be Repre sented By W. E. Reynolds. The Queen and Crescent system is the latest railroad company to locate a representative in this city. TV. E. Reynolds formerly of Atlanta, Ga., has been appointed Traveling Passenger Agent for this district and will have his bead quarters in Plttsbirg. Mr. Reynolds is well known In tbe South as a prominent railroad man and is a hustler. The lst-rn and constantly increasing pas senger business out of this city necessitated the appointment of a man. to locate here. The Queen and Crescent system extends from Cin cinnati to New Orleans and embraces 1,15SJ miles of railroads. To Improve the Misslxiippt. Washington. February 6. Senator Gibson to-day introduced a bill to appropriate S4.0u0.000 for the improvement of the Mississippi river and the harbors 'of, New Orleans, Natchez, Vicksburg and Memphis, according to the clans of the Mississippi Klver Commission, and for the expenses and salaries of the commission. A preamble recites that the appropriation is necessary for the preservation of the plant of unfinished works and for the continuance ot tbe improvement. Pennsylvania nnd Ohio Postmasters.
