AUSTRALIAN BALLOT LAW. 1
The consideration" of House bill No. j
28 was resumed at the afternoon session j
of the House. A great deal of time was l
consumed in discuesing and explaining ^
votes. When Mr. Davies' name was 1
reached that gentleman made an elo- r
queut and forcible speech against the i
passage of the bill. Mr. Moore, in ex- t
elaining his vote, said be had hoped the
lection Committee would draft an elec- fi
tion bill that would have nut with his a
approval, but the bill it reported is so c
complicated and the changes proposed
so radical, that he was compelled to vote 1
against. Then he contrasted the present t
election law by sections and compared it i
wun ino proposed Dili, wincn is a con- t
glomeration of the Australian ballot ays- t
teiiij Indiana election law ami Pennayl- t
vania primary election law; defined i
and explained the present election 8
law and the various ollenaes relating to s
elections under the present law. Ho
contrasted the various sections of the 0
present law'with that of the proposed d
law and showed that the penalties under n
the new law are excessive and in viola- ti
tionof the constitutional provision that b
excessive fines shall not be imposed and a
penaltiea shall be proportioned to the
character and degree of the ofTeuse; that a
1 the proposed new' law ia objectionable t
because it eontinea the voter to voting J
in his precinct; that it will require the v
establishment of additional voting
placts, require additional officers and i
additional expense; that the County t
Court would be compelled to lay off the c
precincts and have an enumeration I
made of the voters. 1
OTHER OBJECTIONS. F
The new law is objectionable in that J
it recognizes only two political parties, t
viz: Democratic and Republican, igpor- t
ing the Prohibition and Labor parties in |
the selection of the Board of Commis- J1
eioners and ballot commission, election f
judges, etc.: that the County Court, by c
the new law, will be required to expend J
a larjje amount of money annually in jj
providing election rooms, booths, etc.; J
that the new law is objectionable in this "
timt it does not make additional provis- ,
ion requi ring and compelling tho Speaker
of the House to open, publish and de- 13
clare the returns of election for Gover- t
nor, and adds no penalty in case the J
Speaker fails or neglects to do so. No J
penalty can ever Becure a declaration of
tho result by the Speaker ii he refuses to 8
perform his duty unless they have a
majority in the Joint Assembly. <]
He referred to the necessity of ?
a penalty being imposed in case
of the refusal of tho Speaker t
to discharge the duty imposed upon him
by law and referred" to our experience
last winter. Many o? the provisions of
the neW law are good, particularly those
prohibiting tho use of money in secur- *
jing nominations and at elections, but I
I the objectionable features of the new law e
are so numerous and the changes pro- 3
posed so expensive and intricate, that K!
objectionable features outweigh the good t
I ones. .The attempt to commit an oflense
under two sections oi the proposed law i
is punished with the same degree of
seventy as the actual commission of (
offense and in controvention with the J
provisions of our statute providing <!
for the punishment of persons who at- *
tempt to commit on offense., e

then called to order before finishing. t

Washington, D. 0., Feb. 12.?Mr.
O'Brien, of Dayton, Ohio, waa tho first
witness examined before the Ballot Box
Forgery committee this morning. In
reply to questions by Governpr Feraker,
witness stated that on behalf of tho Board
)f Elections of Dayton, he had gone ho*
foro tho olection to Cincinnati to pro* i
juro ballot boxes. Ho had not been able
;o see Wood, but had no confidence in !
MrTCamplJell. Witness did not order
he boxes. . t
Charles G. Price, of Cincinnati, stated
hat ho was tho person who, at Mr. Former's
request, had given $200 to Wood
>n October 8,1889. tie had Been Mr. <
Sadden the same day and that geutleman '
iad told him that ho had seen tho paper i
tho forged docuraont). This was some 1
lays before tho retraction. <?: <
TIIK GB08VKN0R LRTTEIt. '
At tho request of Gov. Foraker, Gen.
Jrosvenor waa sworn. Gov. Foraker
iskedtho witness if ho had any objec- 1
lou iu mo puoucation 01 a letter writen
by himself from which Mr. linlstead
ead extracts .while on the stand. Gen. '
irosvenor replied that ho had no objec- c
ions to allowiiiK the letter to bo printed t
n full aud proceeded to read it. The
etter stated that Gen. Grosvenor (the
vriter) had made up bis mind at the H
>eginning of the campaign to contribute 1
nore votes to Foraker than any . other 1
nan, and that no man was more anxious p
o help Foraker than* himself. s
"From here on," the letter says, "I
hall mako it more agreeable for For- 1
iker and more disagreeable for the v
rowd that surrounds Campbell." a
The letter stated that if Mr. Campbell t
lad not introduced the bill a very du- t
inguished Ohio Republican would have v
ntroduced it. A postscript appended to S
he letter stated that .Mr. Jennings, edi- I
or of the Athens, Ohio, Messenger, had ii
old the writer that Campbell had $5,000
n the ballot box scheme. "If this is a
o," said General Grosvenor, "the c.
chetne is a corrupt oue." I
Governor Foraker asked .General a
rrosvenor whom he meant by a very y
istinguished Republican, and the wit- C
ieBS caused a laugh by saying '/that's t
ie." He had given himself the title I
net as Mr. Halstead called himself ."an h
ble editor."'
Governor Foraker?There never was ti
uy kind of an allusion made in.Ohio to
he ballot box matter until I made my S
lusic.Uall speech the night of the 2Sth, s
fob there? a
General Grosvenor?I never heard of e
t till then. Witness thought it proba
no mat no Had written the letter pro- tl
luced before GoveruorForaker'sspeech, J
>ut had not mailed it until subsequent- ii
y, and ho had probably written the
lostscript the MomfiTy following the tl
tfusic Iiallspeecii. The closing words u
f the speech, warning Campbell that o
here was more material, Jennings told h
lim, had reference to Campbell being in- tl
erested in tho ballot box bill. Witness I
lad understood long before, that Camp- it
tell bad something to do with tho ballot o
?'ox matter and was surprised that it had n
lot cropped out a good while before it h
id. Governor Foraker closely ex- v
mined the witness upon expressions u
ontained in the letter written by him, n
nd General Grosvenor said that in the ti
turry of his correspondence ho had h
aade some inadvertent statements 1;
rhich might have been better expressed, p
le did not recollect of speaking to any- o
ody about tho ballot box after Camp- h
ell came to Washington. b
PAT BETWEEN FOKAKER AND GROSVENOR. r
Forakei?-Do you remember getting o J
liapatch in October reading like this: [
Trust in me, Charlie, and I will stand
iy you." 8
General Grosvenor?From whom? e
Governor Foraker?Never mind from P
vhom. ' F
General Grosvenor?No, sir; I have J
10 recollection of anything of the sort. J
t ia not n fnir wnv tn trnn?-. o mtnnoo 1
ither. If you have any information
ou should Bay who from. I think you
;ot your information from some constiutional
liar.
Gov. Foraker?I have got most of my
nformation from you. u
In reply to Representative Turner, R
Jen. Grosvenor said that he had told ?
enniugs that he would -bet a hundred 11
lollars Campbell had no corrupt inter- g
st in the ballot box. Jennings then t
aid that Foraker had positive j>roof that s
Campbell was interested and it was on C
hat statement he apponded his post- t
cript.
A SURI'ItlSIN'O CONVEIISATION*.
Charles E. Kurtz, secretary to Gov.
Toraker, testified that September 30, the ^
norning after the Music Hall speech, he ^
lad a conversation of a surprising nature e
vitb Col. A. C. Sands, of Cincinnati, in j
he Governor's ofiice. He could not tell ]
,be exact words, but could give tho sub- N
itauce of it. There were probably twelve (
)t fifteen people seated around the out- j
;r room, one of.whom was Sands, who .
umped up quickly and seemed
luxious to speak to him. He said that ]
le had lead the speech, and that it was
i cracker. Ho talked in a way that im- (
pressed witness with a belief that ho ]
snow fully of all that was back of the j
jill. He said in substance"that there ]
was a contract back of the bill; that he
himself had been called to Washington,
naving been sent here to certain Con- ?
pressmen in behalf of the bill. Sands
told him that Campbell (the present t
3overnor) had.'twice' gone' to see the ?
President about tho bill. -.Witness asked J
him for what, .-^Witness said: ..".This is 1
remarkable," and asked Sands', if (
Oampbell , wanted to get the n
President to sign the bill. Sands
jaid, "No, no; tbey were not t
worried about that They had not got t
that far along." Then Sands went ou to t
jay in answeMo witness' questions that
leading men in Congress were interested
in tho bill and had signed tho contract.
Leading politicians and Congressmen ]
from Ohio, he said, had signed the con- j
tract and went on to express his opinion .
ihnnt. whnf wnnl'l Wl""' Win I
:ameout. Sands said that Republicans ^
it the top round of the ladder were in- j
terested in this bill and in the contract.
Sanders added with emphasis: "Yes,
up at the top round of the ladder in J
Dliio politics. '
Congressman Mason asked a number
of questions about Mr. Sanders' business,
finally inquiringif lobbying was not part
of his occupation, and witness replied '
that that was the general understanding. |
fouakkr's sincerity.
Gov. Foraker resumed the stand and |
denounced Woods as a notorious forger ;
and perjurer, and declared that ho had
counted seventy-nine unqualified and :
unmitigated falsehoods in his printed
testimony. Continuing, he said thd
affair had boen to him a very bitter experience,
mortifying and humilating in I
the highest degree. From tho beginning
to the last there bus not been n moment
when all the world might not have
hml all tho information he had.
Wood then Again took the stand and
becoming excited, said: "I don't want
tliiu carte to cIobu with both parties
thinking I have put up a job on them.
Tho whole thing originated with that
man [pointing to ilaaden]. It waa business
with mo. If there was any $5,000
down here, I wanted part of it. I never
saw any paper but what you gentlemen
[Foraker and Hadden] impressed on my
mind.
Wood wont on to declare that ho understood
tho paper was never to leave
Foraker's hand, but was to be used as a
bluff.
Mr. Turner?Now, after all, you know
nothing of any ballot-box contract in
which Mr. Campbell, Butterworth, or 1
any of tho gentlemen had anything to ,
do? ;
Wood?I don't, of my own personal
knowledge; only through inference I got
from Haddeu and the Governor there
that those people were in it. I was juBt
getting up something Hadden suggested.
They wanted a bluffer; Hadden did not
uare about whether it was exactly likt^
noni?? nr nftt ' '
Turner?bid ho u80 tho word "bluff- !
ar?" i
Wood?Yes, eir, ho did.- Ho said ho' t
wanted to get back the Topp letter. It {
was eoumion talk that it was out. j
Governor Foraker was then interrog- [
Drated by the oominittoe regarding the t
ropn letter. Ho had never heard of it
until about tho tirao it came out.
Everything this man says," continued s
Governor Foraker, "is as emphatically
also as can be." v " \

lebate on the proposed code of rules t,
vas continued by Mr. Dockery, of Mis- I
ouri, in tho vein of earnest criticism. a
I'ho proposed rules, ho said, would reieve
Congress of the necessity of relealing

hat of Wednesday begun. The journal b
ras approved in the usual manuer, the ai
peaket counting a quorum. Mr. Mc- H
Jreary, of Kentucky; then took tlie floor B
a opposition to the new rules.
Mr. Carutb, of Kentucky, said that ho .0
nd his Democratic colleugues had (lis- ?
overed that "General Parliamentary o
jaw" was an autocrat, was a tyrant, was d
God. The Speaker was omnipotent, s<
et lacking in one of the attributes of ti
Omnipotence-?ho was not the same yesjrday,
to-day and forever. [Laughter.] ,
lo had arisen to protest and he found ^
is protest in tho Record as follows:
"Mr. Oaruth?Mr. Speaker"?[Laugh- fc
?r]. n
(ile^ had felt like tbo member of tbo
ociety of the Stanislaus who "smiled a p
ickly smile and curled up on the floor, ?
nd the subsequent proceedings inter- 'r
sted him no more." [Laughter.] ?
He had come to the conclusion that J.
be Speaker Bbonld be dosed with Col. ^
Iulberry Seller's eyo water externally, i.
iternallyand eternally. [Laughter.]
Mr. Henderson, of Iowa, said that for
tie last few weeks tho country had wit- si
essed scenes unequalled in tho history
f tho Government. Epithets had been
urled broadcast from the other side of .
le chamber on the presiding ollicer. in
language which should havo expelled cl
s users had been uttered and flashed 3C
ver the wires. Gentlemen could d<
ot be called to account for this w
mguagc. To do so would bo to in- to
olve a, trial ' lasting weeks, and pi
?e, tho Republicans, were hero on busiess.
[Applause.] The Speaker, rising
d the situation like a granite mountain, T[
ad met the occasion, and calmlv. crand
V, (lone the duty of the hour." [Aplause
on Republican side.] After one
f the stormy scenes he (Henderson) had tl

Ide say to another, "Did you hear the m

Between 1,300 and 1,500 persons as- tl

S Very TtuercHting Story,
I'a
e New York, Fob. 12.?Wall street wa
r? to*day agitated by one of tho greatee
^ social scandals which has visited it it
I some years. A local paper to-day pub
y liahed a sensational Btory from tin
j Hygeia Hotel, at Old Point Comfort
t The heroine of tho Btory was Mrs. Alic<
0 Snell McCrea, daughter of the murderei
millionaire Snell, of Chicago, who re
cently procured a divorco from her hus
J band. Tho hero was Douglass Green, i
. member of tho well known banking
1 iirm of Gieen & Bateman, at No. 51
1 Broadway, this city.
j The gist of tho Btory is that Mrs. McCrea
and Mr. Green, tho latter beiup
also a guest of the hotel, suddenly concluded
to get married, and after some
difficulty in getting a licence, were
. actually married on Monday last by a
I colored clergyman, tho brido insisting
l upon that point.
j Tho couple then left Old Point Comfort
and came on to this city, where
Mrs. McCrea had been living for aomo
' time at No. 135 West Ninety-third street.
She gave up ihis house on going South,
and on their return bho wont to, tho 8t.
James Hotel, aud Green went to his
quarters, at. the Barcelona flats. Mrs.
Green regiBte^d iindv her old name.
When Green's doiugs reached the
ears of other members of his firm. then*
was a lively time, duo to tho fact that
Green has a wife already, from whom ho
was not divorced, and several children.
Ho had, they declared, been acting
queerly of late, and thoy thought his
mind was unbalanced, lie was given
one day in which to deny the report of
his marriage with tho widow, and as ho
did not do it his retirement from the
Qrm was demanded. To this ho assented,
and to-day his retirement was announced
publicly in the Stock Exchange.
Tho scandal, which by this time had
become knovvn on tho street, created a
lively sensation, as Green was widely
and favorably known. Tho fact that
he has beenjjuilty of deliberate bigamy
leads his friends to believe him mentally
unsound. His first wife is a niece of the
Governor of New Hampshire, and is
now living in Connecticut. He separated
from her about three years aso, and
she received a weekly allowance. She
was informed to-day of, her husband's
escapade.
Green's friends yesterday afternoon
concluded to have bis meutal condition
inquired into, and engaged Gen. Roger
A. Pryor to take charge of the matter.
When Green was sought this morning it
was found that he had flown with his
new bridft. Hfl hrmrilnH tho tZuvmnr*
steamer Lahn late last evening and the
couple sailed thia morning for Europe.
Green had got wind of the lunacy proceedings.
Although his finances arc
probably in a baa way, the Chicago
widow has about a million and a half
in her own name.
HIS GLOMES MISSING,
A Myatery About a Man Found Lying Under
n Troo.
Nyack, N. Y., Feb. 12.?Two men on
their way to a train, at 5 o'clock yesterday
morning, heard groans, and upon
investigating found a man, unknown by
anyone here, lying under a large tree
with no apparel on except a portion of
an undergarment.
The stranger was unconscious and apparently
nearly frozen. He was taken
to a warm room, and in a. couple ^of
hour* recovered coneciousness. He is a
German about 35 years old, heavy built,
and wearing a light mustache. His
hair is newly cut and his face clean
shaven.
Several hours afterward the man revived
and said his name was Matthew
Iioflmau, that he came from Philadelphia
to New York, and from that city to
Nyack. When asked where his clothes
were, he said he took them off Monday
night alongside a stream and lay down
to sleep. A search kept up nearly all
day has failed to reveal the whereabouts
of the man's clothing, aud the case is
shrouded in mystery.
The man's hands aro soft, and plainly
he has done no hard work with them.
He is very reticent, and it is believed
, there is a story back of the case. The
man is held by the authorities until
something can be learned concerning
; him.

Sears' Sclmino.
New York, Feb. 12.?The action of the
National Lawn Tennis Association on A.
D. Sear's proposed change in rules has
1 just been given out. The defeat of the
amendment to cut off the rest while playing
matches is not considered by all to
be a good thing for the game, as it is
i likely, had the amendment passed, that
Mr.* Sears, who haf almost entirely re.
covered from the injury that caused his
withdrawal from match play, would be
in the tight for the championship this
I year. The secret of success of Ex-Cham
plon Bears in playing tennis, according
. to the be Jt authority, nas been his cleverness
in running his opponent out of wind,
and, had his amendment been adopted,
I he might have regained the championship.
The rule iB a great assistance to
L many New Yorkers, notably Campbell.
- Eastern clubs nearly all favored the pro
poBed amendment, while the New York
> and Western .clubs were against it.
t The definition of an amateur was not

ncu auunu oiuuriHii traveler anu v
writer, who is now delivering a series of
lectures in this city on the Russian penal 8p(
system, was asked in regard to the dis- co
patch from Paris yesterday, detailing the
outrages to Mine. Sihida by a prison
official at Kara and the distressing train
of events which followed. Ho said that
the dispatch bore the impress of truthfulness.
''Paris contains a large number
of Russian refugees and they have meanri
of communicating with the penal settle- jv
ment that no other persons have. Tho .
Yakutsck massacre came out through ,
tho refugees in Paris and it is evident
that the persons who wrote tho dispatches
knew something about the loca- }
tion of tho prisons at Kara. I have been .
there and know that tho male and
female prisons are some distanco apart.
I never met tho ladies mentioned, but
I knew of Mme. Kayalafakaya and have a'
heard of Mme. Sihida. I will undoubtedly
hear something about this matter
in a few days, but at present I know
only whst I see in tho dispatches. a J
"Some officer might have been present mi
who did not approve of the outrage and ch;
told some of the prisoners about it. Then
some of the women may have seen it
and sent word to Paris. Such outrages
never can be covered up. They are Ml
bound to get out some way. There are sin
700 or 800 male prisoners at Kara, and sit
some el them manage to convey in for- Tli
