Political Assessments Can Not be
Legally Levied
On Government Employes by Any
Person, Either Office-holder
or Private Citizen. '
Vie President of the bid Dominion Re
publican League te be Froseented by the
OItII Servloe Commiulon for Soliciting
Contributions.
Wasuinoton, Oct 29. The determi
nation of the Civil Servloe Commission to
prosecute the officers olj the pldt Dorajn
lon Kepublloaa league for levying a po
litical assessment on Federal o Aloe-holders
promise to open 'up a number of
questions of unusual interest. The al
leged offense of whioh the Civil Service
Commission has taken cognizance con-
Ilsts h the mailing; to Virginia offlpe
olders ' iq the departments a circular
Which the commission, oonstrue to he in
the nature of apolitical assessment The
commissioners resolved to make a test
case of what they regard as a violation
of the law designed to protect Federal
office-holders from political assessments.
It Is popularly supposed that the law on
this point merely precludes an officer of
the Government from receiving or solic
iting a contribution from another officer
or employe, but an examination of the
Revised Statutes by the commissioners
convinced thorn, they say, that it was an
rffitose for anyoitlzen, whether an
offlot-holdor or not, to solicit a contribu
tion from a Government employe. The
penalty is a heavy one three years' im
prisonment and $5,000 fine.
In the present cases some of the o fl
ours of the Old Dominion League are
Federal office-holders, while others are
private citizens. Civil Service Commis
sioner Thompson was seen in regard to
the proposed prosecution of the officers
of the League. "It will be pushed with
.Vigor," said he, "as it is our belief that
one conviction will settle the question
for good and no one would ever again
attempt to collect assessments. The
commission has not yet seoured all the
evidence it desires, but will have it in a
few days." . ,
( "What officers of the Government are
implicated?"
- ''The only one that I now recall is W.
0. El am,, a chief of division of the Inte
rior Department ' He is an officer of the
association, the first vice president and
I am confident that the evidence we have
is tu Helen t, Judged by the usual prac
tice, to secure conviction." ,

Damaging Evidence Against th
Cronin Conspirators. '
O'Sullivan, the Ice Man, Put In a Bad
Light by Mrs. Couklin. ,
The Famons Whit Horse Is Again De
scribed With Great Accuracy A Disas
trous Day for the Defense.
Cine AO o, Oct 29. Public Interest In
the Cronin trial continues and seems to
Intensify as the trial progresses toward
the point where the introduction of
sensational ovldonce Is probable. . The
Jurors yesterday looked refreshed by
their Sunday rest and the prisoners
wero In a niore ohoerf ul mood than any
day since the opening of the trial. John
Cronin, the doctor's brother, was the
first witness called by the State,, but was
not present '
Napier Moreland, Pat Dlnan's hostler,
was called. Mr. Moreland testified in
response to Mr. Mills' questions, that on
the evening of May 4, about aeven
o'clock, a man called at Dlnan's stable, .
where witness was then working. The
man asked It any horse had been hired
for him there during theay. '-Witness ;
knew nothing: about It 'and told blm' to
tee Dlnan.; The stranger left the stable
to seek Dinan, whom he found, arid who,
a few .moments later, entered in com
pany with the stranger and told witness
to hitch up a horse. Witness brought
out a gray horse, to which the stranger
objected, saying be did not want a white
horse. The man did not say who hired
the horse for htm. Mr. Dinan told wit
ness not to send out the horse whioh he
was hitching up and ordered him to
bring out the "old white horse."
Mr. Forrest here objected to the intro
duction In evidence of every thing re
lating to the man who called for the
whit horse and to anything he said or
did, Dan Coughlln not being present
The court overruled the objection, Mr.
Forrest taking an exception. Witness
described the man as looking like a tne
ohanio. He had a short dark beard of
about a week's growth. He wore a round,
toft slouch hat and a . faded brown or
gray overcoat with th oollar pulled up
around bis chin. There were no side .
curtains on the buggy and th man
asked for them, but did not get them.
The stranger's boots were muddy and
ttalned. The horse was returned be- ,
tween nine and 9:30 o'clock. Witness '
then described the condition of the buggy ;.
and horse. The buggy was covered with
sand and mud and the horse was warm
and blowing hard, as though having been
driven rapidly for a longdistance. WJien
the rig was returned the man did not
come into the barn, but jumped from the
buggy outside and walked rapidly away.
Mrs. Conklin followed Moreland on
the stand. She told the now familiar
itory of the call of the mysterious
stranger who took the physician away
in Dlnan's buggy. She also identified
the card of O'Sullivan, the ice man, that
had been presented by the man; The
tatter's eyes, she said, were the most
villainous she had ever seen. They had
a kind of "don't look at me again" look ,
about tbem. This description was ruled
out upon objection by tbe defense, (con
tinuing, she said that when she taxed
O'Sullivan with the seeming connection
between himself and the physician's dis
appearance, he said, that be oeuld not
explain it He was very nervous, kept
twirling his hat and could not look the
witness in the face. During this testi
mony O'Sullivan leaned forward and
looked Mrs. Conklin straight In the fane,
ills oduntenance was alternately pale
and flushed, although be occasionally
imllod. Mrs. Conklin went on to tay
that ahe positively identified Dlnan's
white horse as the one driven by the
man that called for Dr. Cronin.
After Mr. Forrest had failed In the at
tempt to bave tbe major portion of this j
testimony ttrloken out the witness wai
put through a severe cross-examination.
She more than held her own, however.
PnrrAat. ivimnallMil hnr in describe the
horse a half dozen times, with the view 1
of Involving her la contradictions, but
her story did not vary a word. In de
scribing the peoullar motion of the an
imal's knees she placed ber hands on her
knees and with her wrists representing
the horse's knees, showed tho peculiar
twlstlnir motions of its legs. She em
phatically dented that she had failed to .
Identify the horse when it was brought
to her by Captain Schaack, and her evi
dence was entirely satisfactory to the
jounsel for the State.
The cross-examination of Mrs. Conk
lin was resumed after the recess for
lunch. She emphatically denied that
he had told to a reporter of a morning
Sapor a story that dlffored in material
etails from her evidence given at the
morning session. At the request of
sounsel O'Sullivan, the ice man, con
fronted the witness, and she said, his
mustache bad changed in color since she
had interrogated him with reference to
the physician's disappearance. At that
time It was a little reddish in the cen
ter, while now it was darker. An effort
on tho part of oounsel to confuse O'Sul
livan with Mulcabey, one of .hit em
ployes, failed.
Charles W. Beck, a reporter, testified
to having taken out the white horse
which was Identified by Frank Scanlan
and Mrs, Conklin. Miss Sarah McEnerny
and ber slater Agnes, both of whom were
in tbe physlolan's ofBo when he was
summoned by tbe mysterious stranger,
sorroborated the evidence given by Mrs.
Conklin. Both sustained their position
on cross-examination.

rain he puts them backwards so.
'"Make the donkey the oourt astrologer!'
shouted the King. . It was done. But the
King always declared that the appointment
wat tbe greatest mistake tnat tie naa ever
made in his life.' ' '
"Lincoln stopped there. .'
" 'Why did he say It wat a mistake!' we
asked him; 'didn't the donkey do his duty!'
"'Yes,' said the President; 'but after
that every donkey wanted an office.' "

Bow an Aeronaut Was Greeted by a
FoUle Old Alabama Negro.
Not long after the war a circus came to
Montgomery. It was the first oircua that
had been there in a long time, and, says
the Atlanta Constitution, attracted an -Immense
crowd, especially of negroes. The
most interesting feature of the entertain.
ment wa th balloon ascension. Th
negroes bad never teen any thing of that
kind, and regarded the ipeotade of a man
tailing up into the cloudt very much at
they would have looked upon Elijah going
up in his chariot of fir. Tbe balloon tailed
away eight or ten miles and came down la
a field where some negroes were plowing.
Terrified at the spectacle of a chariot com
ing down from Heaven, they verily believed
that the last great day had come, and, re
membering all their sbort-onmlngs, fled
away in terror at tbe approach pf the awful
judge. ...
One gray-headed and rbeumatlo bid negro
was unable to get awur. Be could follow
th plow, but he could not run, and the
chariot came down, upon pirn wltn terrible
swiftness. In that awful moment his whole
life rushed upon him,' he thought of all the
petty sins he hod committed and the ghosts
of a hundred chickens teemed to rise up la
judgment against him. - But In that desper
ate emergency btt mind did not desert him,
and remembering that politeness always
counted with bit earthly master, be quickly
decided to greet the Lord of Heaven and
earth in a becoming style. ' At the aeronaut
touched the earth and began to untangle
himself from the meshes about his oar the
old darkey, with an air of profound obei
sance, removed the wool hat from hit shiny
pate, bowed low, and said with pious uno
tion: "Mornln, Mars Jetut, howyoulef
mur pal"
