"MUEAT HALSTEAD TELLS HIS STORT.
JH Insists That the Gora-nor and Himself Wen
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
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
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
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 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
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
"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

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.
