on the -Wh? rea<ij jis follows:
"A largenumber of Republicans of tho
Second Congressional District met at Aiken i
vestI'plav, to listen to an address from E.
*\|. Urayton, tho Republican candidate for I
Congress. The red-Hblrted Democratic club, i
in obedience to instructions from their
party leaders, were on band as usual, pre- I
pared and determined to break up the I
ineetiiijr. Ah soon as Mr. Brayton began to i
HjK'ak he wait interrupted by yells, curses I
ami derisive cliters, so that lie could not bo I
Jicaril. A despe/ato-looking red-shirt dis- i
m/iiiiili'il from liifl horse and made a fnrinns i
thi.ili at the stand, with the purpose of ]
pulling tli? speaker down, but was pre- 1
vented hy liis mora Hober-iuinded coinpau- '
ions from necoinplishiug his design. t
.Mr. Dmyton saw that it would not be i
Kafeto continue tiie meeting and, therelore,
dhuniased his hearers and returned to
hi* Imtel. Here he waa followed by the
reil-hliirtera, who rode their horses up into t
tlie piamof the hotel and continued their
abuse of Mr. Drayton until the arrival of (
the train.
To show that this outrage was wholly
premeditated and arranged for we have (
only to refer to an editorial artlclo that t
preceded the meeting in the columns of
the Aiken, S. C., Jievoriler?a Democratic ,t
paper?which is us follows: j
We publish the call for a mass meeting ?
of the filthy, ficru'IFy crew, headed by J. ?

not know whether to call litem the ring

know thi>?, that if the Democracy of 'Aiken 1
county don't turn out in fulL force on Saturday
next and confront these unclean
birds of prey, they will be recreant to their i
duly and unworthy of their grand old Carolina
mother. Let every club turn out in
full force, mounted and in red shirts and .
with banners Hying, llepreseutntivo Democrats
will be on hand to demand a divis- .
ion of time, and your patriotic county
chairman, (ftoigo \V. Croft, will be there
to manage the details. We say down with

This is the Bourbon idea of free govern- ]

South id made solid for so-called Democra- ,

I was accepted and sworn as a juror to try

During the progress of the triai
I wan approached by an agent

[hat tie was authorized to see me in reference
to the case. lie made the dishonest
proposition of ollering $2,500 to influence
iho verdict. The following day, August 24,
lie forwarded a card to my address, milking
vupointinent. I immediately reported the
rausaction to Judge Wylie, and informed
urn of what had transpired. The crime is
)f that character which aljects the rights

that I respect fully, but earnestly,

"It is a highly improper commnnicaion,"

Washington, October 'M.?The first of
lie jury bribery wises, that against Arthur
L'uyue, colored* came up in Police Court
o-ihiv. Governor Wells and Mr. Kerr for
lie Government, were iu attendance,
i'ayne was attended by his counsel, Messrs.
Padgett, Newman and Davies and Pagette.
Mr. Jlrewster Cameron, Co I. Kobert G.
loRersoll, Seward McLaineand others, who
liad been connected with the Star route
trial sat within the bar.
After the presentation of several aflidatits
Juror Brown was called to the stand and
Lold the story of Payne's attempt at bribery
in substance, as already related in the press,
Upon cross-examination the witness said
lie was informed through an auonyinous
note that Fall was working up this scheme.
Witness "did not believe they had any Intention
of paying $2,500 for his vote." He
lid believe that it was a job to send him
to the penitentiary.
The defence eudeavored without success
to obtain a statement from the witness of
the conversation between himself and
Uov. AVells, The prosecution objected and
ttiu Court sustained the objection.
The witness said that ou October 12th last
lie made an atlidavit (what is known as
tholngersoll aflidavit), but upon objection
[rom Governor Wells the defence prevented
the questioning of the witness on the subject,
the object being to contradict him.
1'lie original atlidavit was then produced
und witness was examined upon its sub-*
ject matter. Witness denied Fall's name ,
liad been mentioned in the atlidavit, and
when the document was exhibited to him ,
uontaiuing Fall's name in interlineation,
lie said he thought it had been inserted
ifter he swore to the ailiilavif, which he
jaid was in Col. Ingersoll's handwriting. ,
Lt was not true he used Fall's
name on that occasion. So much
>f tho aflidavit as stated that
Martin (another juror) was to be influenced,
kVHH untrue. Ho did not remember who
;old him Col. Itigereoll wanted to see him, 1
jut he went up,to his ofllce and made an !
Ulidavit, whieh followed the one made
before to Assistant District Attorney
VIoore. In his conversation with Payne, !
Jio witness made au appointment for" the
ol lowing Monday. His object was to Hud '
)Ut the man behind Payne. He regarded
Payne as a dupe. This man, lie believed, ,
jnd written the agreement destroyed.
Witness denied, laughingly, that ho had
sver offered l'uyno $150 for the written '
The Court remarked that the matter beoro
it was not whet her a juror had been
sribed, but whether ho had been approach
ed. I
Mr. Davis replied he understood thai; .
-ie was now trying to make out by the wit- ,
less'own words that ho was unworthy
)( belief; that he had made ailidavits con- j
mdictory of ono another. (
The examination of the witness was resumed.
lie denied he'had first learned of
:ho existence of the written argument on
Seventh street when lie drank withTaynf-j
witness never told Win. K. Lowe ho
Liiougiii uiuru was luuney m iuc ouh iuuiu
business lor him, the witness. Ho voted i
[or the appropriation made by his lodge to ,
send Payne out west. Did not remember
whether or not ho moved tho appropriation.
The cross examination brought out no
point of importance. . 1
At tho request o! the defensa the further ;
jxamination of Brown was adjourned until
to-uioriow in order to allow them to obtain 1
by subpojna upon tho Attorney General '
itlidavits collected by special counsel Wells. '

affidavits of Nelson and others, )?aiii hp h?d 1

reason for bo doing ft as he did not believe
this was an honest prosecution, that tho .
paper was wanted for no honest purpose,
[iii4 for the protection of witness, Nelson,
who would lie called before the court, he
had done this. .
Williams was bskcu u no was present '
\i\d participated in the preparation ot i
what won subsequently published as Col. i
ingenjoll's interview ? 1
This question Wlim) to answer,
ami appealed to tlio Court.
Tho question was temporarily waived,
Witness knew a subptena was out for !
Nelson's affidavit when he gave it to Nelton
th|s morning. ' ;
Gov. Wells renewed his question relative
I? the SogenoU interview,. M-ngaiu the
witness declined to answer, His objection f
wuh BuntftineU by tho Court.
Witness acknowledged that. bo had Je
uucrnteJy, for tho purpose of avoiding a *i
Muli|]?uii4it given tho affidavit to Nelson.
Ho did this because ho wifllied to compel
the Government to briny Nelson into *
court. Witness made thin declaration in a
cool, defiant luuuncr, charging Governor
Wells with having a dishonest purpose in
calling for tho paper. J ie wild that ho acted
entirely upon hi* own responsibility in
this matter. Incersoll knew nothing of his
purposed. lie did not know where Footo's c
affidavit was. Ho believed it had been *'
returned to Footo several dnv's ago. He *
decllned to tell where Foote 'was, ami in t
answer to an implied threat from Governor
Wells to have him punished lor concealing <
tho whereabouts of a fugitive from justice,
ho said the charge against Koote was ouly c
a miwk'JHi'unor and he, Williams, could t
not be forced to give such information. ,
Subpoinas were issued for Colonel Ingeraoll, i
Nelson, and Uaker, a clerk in Colonel Ingeraoll

Washington*, October 1?U?Col. llobert ^
G. Ingeraoll was interviewed upon Special j
Counsel Wells' report in tbo star route j
bribery ease. Col. Ingeraoll says; "lhave
read the report, and I urn very much obliged ;
to Wells for making it. lie has corrobo- 1
rated itiy Htatement in many particulars, 1
and has furnished so much evidence in j
favor oi its absolute truth that 1 feel under
certain obligations to him. I charged that
Fall was employed .by the government, at 1
$10 a day. Wells admits it. That Nelson v.
was employed at SoO a month. Wells ad- r
mits it. That both these men were hired t
because Full said he and Nelson had bribed j
Brown in a former case. Wells admits ,
this. I ulso charged that Fall employed 'j
Foote, and that Foote brought Payne to ?
Fall,nn.il that Fall got Payne to offer Urown \
$<"2,500 for his vote. Wells admits this. {
The only difference between Wells' t
statement and mv own up to tins point is ^
:is to tlie form of the written agreement ,
Fall wrote for Brown to sign. Alt the evi- c
deuce taken together shows without one
shadow of doubt that Fall was employed ,
by the Department of Justice, and that in g
the interests of his employes Fall endeuv- s
ored to corrupt llrown. It is admitted by
the Department of Justice that Fall not
only jjjude an improper proposal to jurymen,
but that he carried his impudence to
the extent of making improper proposals
to the Department of .Justice. Wells substantially
admits Fall did go to IIoIinead
and did tell him that all the other
lurors were under tne uati 01 suspicion, null j
tUutbe-,Holincml,wu8 the only juror in whom j
[lie Attorney-General had any coutidence. c
Llolmeud did not regard this conversation f.
us tin attempt to bribe him, and 'so stated, f
Hut, aa a matter of fact, to approach a f|
juror in that way i9 just as reprehensible tl
us to oiler him money; it is iufamous. g
Ihe re-nl question, and onlv question really B
in thecase is whom was lull acting for? j
Was he acting foi the Government or for c
the defense? Suppose it turned out that
the deiendants were paying l'all ten dollars
i day and the Department of Justice
nothing, would it be possible to make
any human believe be was actjug
ior the Department of Justice ?
It is admitted the Department paid him
$10 a day, and the supposition is he was at
work for his employers, anil without some
positive testimony to the contrary' we are
compelled to believe what he did for the
Department of'J ustice. lie savs he was
engaged by the Departinefff"ahd worked
forth? Department; that it was his business
to find out whether any jurors had
been approached, and whether anv jurors {
could i>e approached, and no objection
made by the Department to that kind of
it lias been charged a hundred times
that after Fall was discharged on thV 17th
of July, he was reemployed under the
nnm,?-nM?MlSll ?n<1 l.n u-oi WftA f?.
information furnished in a uriminal prosecution,
and lie received it under the name
of V. Hill. On the 24tli of Octobcr, Fall
beiug- somewhat 'uneasy, ia mind wrote a
letter to Nelson, as follows:
Jiu:?1 am told thai the Government will
abandon me and sav that 1 tried to bribe
the juiy for the'defense, nud also that you
and I. bribed iJrown in the Long case. I
do not believe you gave llrown a cent. I
will stand by you if it comes to the .worst.
Should the Government abandon me I
expect your support, and you may be asHurcd
that I shall nut let you sutler for
anything you have done for the Government,
through me.(.if the Government
arrests me, it will be an net of persecution
as you know, and I must light to the bitter
end. 1 did what was done for the Government.

Mrs. Seguin took the children
o an empty spare room at the top of a
ivo-story house in the absence of the

in the basement, and locked herself

boa n no evidence of inanity. She was a

Her domestic life was very happy,
md there was no family troubles.
Dr. Seguin returned home about 7

As to the recommendations, of

it the opening of next session. The comnission
has held sessions for just twelve
seeks?the lirst live weeks being spent at

ime in visiting cities in several parts of
lie country in order to ascertain the conlition
and wants of the various local inlustiies.
Thus, three days were spent in
Boston, two in Cincinnati, three in Chica;o,
two in St. Louie, two in Baltimore, six
n New York, three in Pittsburgh, ami
hreein L'hiladelphia, while still shorter
isits were made in Milwaukee, St. Paul,

lommiesion traveled about; j,000 miles,
ield public sessions for nbout TO days,

111 about 2,000 pages, und as there was
m!y one official reporter, and as a large
mrt of this time was spent in traveling,
he rapidity with which the record has
?een prepared for publication is retnarkaile.
.It is the opinion of persons who have
md unusually good opportunities for judgug
of the sentiment of the torn mission
luit no radical or importaut changes in the
xisting tarilF will be recommended. Their
eport will rccommend, perhaps, a slight
ticrease of duties here, a slight decrease
liere, together with some insigniHeant adions
to the free list, and wherever it is
ossille an abandonment of compound
uties (that is, of ad valorem rates comined
with specific rates) will be recomicnded.
It is also probable that import

completed. The total is$251,428,117. To ai

There is not much probability that the w

No one in the Treasury thinks that the

The Conservative members of huiialent
held a meeting to-day, fc'ir Stafford
Jortheote, Conservative leader, being in

eeided to combat the operations of (ho
loture to the bitter end.
The debate on the procedure rules was
L'sutned. (."Jibaoii (Conservative) moved
tiat tho crucial amendment of the cloture
liall not be carried unless two-thirds' of
hose present at any session shall vote in
ivorof the exorcise of it on that narticu*

peeeh in the House, and that such a majrity
might, if they chose to, legislate for
ne country with the mouths ot members
loscdand the minority helpless to renriv.
?nt their constituents.
Gladstone explained' lo the House -(lint
e offered dining Ibo session-last May to
dopt the two-thirds majority rule, hoping
lereby to forward the business of the
ession. As that object was not attained
ten (to felt justified in the withdrawn! of
mt proposal, which was merely a plan lo
ive a defective system, and one which he
ould not wholly approve, lie denied there
its any desire to gag 4he minority, and
lid his only wish was to restrain unneeesiry
debate*against the evident sense of tho
louse. Gibson's amendment would hat'o
10 effect of transferring the rights of the
lojority to the minority^ lie would not
mke this question a subject of appeal to
le country, but he begged that the House
ould not assent to Unit amendment.
