Special Despatch to the Chicago Tribune.
Washington, D. C., Oct. 24.—Secretary Bout
well was visited to-day by delegations of business
men from all tho leading Western cities, save
Chicago and Cleveland, who come to urge on
him the policy of expansion, and that he proceed
to issue the $44,000,000 yet remaining under the
Currency act, for the relief of their section of the
country. The same old arguments were indulged
in, to wit: That tho business of the country had
outgrown the present volume of the circulating
medium, and that there was not surplus capital
enough in the Hast to get the Western crops to
market. The Secretary listened patiently
to al Uhe various spokesmen of the Committee
had to say, - and replied, in a conversational way,
that ho would favor any policy which would beet
promote the business interests of the- whole
country. If that required an increase of the
present volume of tho circulating medium, he
would certainly increase it to tho full extent of
the four hundred limitation. However, that
was a subject to which there were two sides, and
he should always he free to hear arguments from
both. The delegations left, not altogether satis
fied that they had made much of an impression.

The attention of the State Department is now

that the Secretary should intervene to promptly

New York, Oct. 2i. —A. D. Strologo, Private
Secretary of Colonel Goo. H. Butler while that
worthy was United States Consul in Egypt, has
turned State's evidence, and publishes a precious
mess of scandal involving his employer and
himself. Using Strologo as a go-between, But
ler pocketed in bribes no less than $21,000 in
gold. Strologo was promised a fair division, but
received only about S7OO. Butler opened letters
addressed to others in the most nnscrupulous
manner. and turned their contents
to his own advantuge. After the
shooting affray, Butler telegraphed to his uncle,
in the united States, General Butler, to get him
a leave of absence, and send by telegraph imme
diately, that it was important.- No time was
lost, for an answer came about ton hours after,
signed by Mr. Hale, granting leave if the case
was urgent. Butler took the books, documents,
and archives away with him, and several blank
passports and official papers, putting the official
seal of the Consulate upon them, saying they
might be handy, and come to use. It will be
remembered that General Starring's report on
Butler is still hidden away in the. official pigeon
holes in Washington.

Washington, D. 0.. Oct. 24.—A synopsis of
tlie October crop report of J, B. Dodge, Statis
tician of the Department of Agriculture, indi
cates the comparative production of wheat, oats,
and barley, and the condition of the com crop
on the Ist of October. The record of the yield
of wheat is quite as variable as was
that of its condition daring the summer
Some States have made superior crops, and oth
ers almost the poorest ever grown. The Now
England States have nearly sustained the usual
average; the Middle States and Maryland to
gether reduced their last year’s aggregate from
37,000,000 bushels to 24,000,000, or 85 per cent.
The Southern States, from Virginia to Tennessee,
which were known to have increased largely
their wheat area, appear to have enlarged their
productions 50 per cent, or from 18,000,000 bush
els to 27,000,000. California has increased her
product at least 75 per cent. Minnesota
and lowa have made a material increase,
while Missouri and Kansas—the former growing
winter wheat mainly, the latter both winter and
spring—have had a comparative failure in both
varieties. Virginia and Kentucky have had good
•crops, while Maryland and Ohio return dimin
ished yields, as does the entire district between
the Ohio Biver and the lakes, the Miami and the
Hudson. Returns have been received from
counties representing a large proportion of the
wheat of each State, which indicate an increase
of about 5 per cent over the products of last
year, which was eetimatedat23o,ooo,ooo bushels.
It is probable that the corrected estimate will
not fall short of 240,0000,000 bushels upon
an area a little less than 20,000,000
acres. This will make the yield between twelve
and thirteen bushels per acre, which may be
considered an average for tho United States.
The increase in the States west of the Missis-
sippi appears to be about 15,000,000 bushels, or.
in comparison with last year’s product, 85,000,000
to 70,000,000 bushels. The central line of wheat
production running north and south is this jear
further west than ever before, and is nearly
identical with the 90th Meridian, which divides
centrally the States of Wisconsin and Illinois.
Nearly all the wheat produced between this Hue
and the Mississippi River is grown in the west
ern half of those two States. The quality
of the wheat is in most of the States better than
last year. The percentage of product in com
parison with last year, in each of the States, is
as follows :
Maine, 109; Now Hampshire, 98; Vermont,
93; Maaaachueotta, 90; Connecticut, 96; Now
York, 70; Now Jersey, 80; Pennsylvania, CO;
Delaware, 75; Maryland, 66; Virginia, 101;
North Carolina, 136; South Carolina, 113; Geor

New York, Oct, 24.— Contrary to general ex
pectation hero, the Bank of England’s minimum
discount raid was not advanced. This morn
ing’s despatches say money is still active out
side the bank at about 6 per cent, the hank rate.
Tho failure to advance the rate may he ex
plained by the statement in the London Times
this forenoon, which, os cabled to Kiernan’s
now agency, is: “The French Government is
expected shortly to liberate a part of £26,000,000
sterling, which they held.” This supplements tho
despatches on Saturday last, to the effect that
what is equivalent to $20,000,000 were to he re-
Icasedfrom the Bank of France, and put in tho
Bank of England. Tho latest English papers
received by mail allude to such a transfer. It
is supposed the money would remain with the
Bank of England until the end of the year, when
the next indemnity payment from France is due

the tendency to produce a firmer feeling on the
Stock Exchange in early dealings, and a decline
in the gold premium; but later, the speculation
was somewhat reversed.
The money market was easy in the morning.
Call loans were made at 6 to 7 per cent, but later
rates declined to [email protected] per cent. Prime mercan

loan runs.
During the morning borrowers had to pay as
high as % per cent per diem for use of gold,
but in the afternoon 7 per cent for canying.

important fluctuations in three or four special

Conducts His Own
The Election Commissioner Outrages.
Special Despatch to The Chicago Tribune,
New York, Oct. 24.— Tweed says emphatically,
that he now intends to fight his caao through
to a conclusion. Ho remarked to a reporter, “ I
am" compelled, in going to trial, to hear the of
fences of every other man charged with the
same offences. The prosecution has boasted
that if they can convict me, it will be easy work
with Hugh Smith, Connelly, James M. Sweeney?
and others. I suppose it - will if
they can catch any .of! them.
The otheis know well enough that if I am not
convicted they will never be prosecuted, and so
I have not only all their sms to bear,- but all
their expenses to pay. Why don’t tho news-'
papers say something of the others?” Tweed’s
trial will probably not occur until next year.
United States Commissioner Davenport con
descended to-day to hear a little testimony in
the Heinrich case, but soon - became confused at
the questions of Heinrich’s counsel regard
ing his despotic arrests and refusal to
accept bail, and adjourned the case for one week.
Heinrich’s counsel demanded an immediate in
vestigation. but Davenport said, “ I am hot
going on with this case until I am ready. Wheth
er I had one, or ten, or more days to produce
witnesses or papers is a matter which I intend
to govern myself.” This announcement created
considerable sensation in the crowded' court
room. The only witness examined was ■ Stahl,
the Deputy, whose questions Mr. Heinrich re
fused to answer. Before Stahl was sworn he
held a private consultation with Davenport.
Hero is a quotation from Stahl’s- cross-exam
ination : •• i *
Question. Did you tell Mr. Heinrich the ob
ject of your visit before you askedhim questions
about his name and age ?
Witness. I did not, hut when he refused I
said I was appointed to verify the registry. He
replied that he had already sworn to what he had
answered when his name was placed on registry,
and ho would not answer any other questions.
He then made me go out. He did not assault
Question. Where did you receive [your in
structions as Marshal ?
Witness. In Concordia Hall Headquarters of
Question. Were you in Commissioner Daven
port’s private office this morning?
Witnes. I was.
Question. While you were in Commissioner
Davenport’s private office, did you talk to any
person about this case ?
Witness. I talked over the facts in the case to
Mr. Davenport in his private office.
Question. During an entire hour ?
Witness. I can’t say the time I was inside.
Commissioner Davenport. I adjourn the case.
Mr. Hirsch. I hope your Honor will not post
pone the case until after election.
Commissioner Davenport. Mr. Hirsch, your
remarks are certainly uncalled for, inasmuch as
I have adjourned the case until next Thursday.
Mr. Heinrich then left with his friends. Both
Heinrich and Hussy, arrested in their own
houses by Davenport, are old and respectable
citizens, and Greeley men. The offence for
which they were dragged from their homes is
alleged impertinence. Against neither is there
any charge of wrongful registration.
[To the Associated Press,}
SIATOB hall’s matinee.
New York, Oct. 24. —The trial of Mayor Hall
is progressing. Deputy Comptroller Storra tes
tified to the Mayor’s signature to certain bills
which passed the Board of Audit. * The * witness
gave a detailed account of the routine of the
hills before warrants were drawn- for their pay
ment. The bills were causually examined,"both
by him and the Mayor. There were on an aver
age a thousand bills per month during May,
June, and July, 1870. Bills of forty or fifty
thousand dollars were not unusuaL The prose
cution here strenuously objected to the Question,
asking the witness if he knew whether the mem
bers of the present Board of Audit personally
examined into claims and bills. The' ground of
objection was that if others neglected their
duty it was no defence in this case.
Mayor Hall responded, saying the question of
intent was vital. The allegation was that the
Board of Audit delegated the powers of exam
ining into claims to the County Anditor, and, in
doing so were criminal; that they were also
criminal for not personally examining into so
many barrels of various things and so many
days’ work, and that their intent was criminal in
relying upon the examination of a man more
skilful in accounts than themselves. The Mayor
said be proposed to show that the present Board
of Audit adopted the same routine as was in
vogue in 1870. The duties of the Board
in May, Juno, and July, 1870, wero
enough to crush the brain of an ordinary man,
and every bill could not bo examined then, and
ore not now.
Tremaine said the Board was appointed to
stand between the claimants and the tax-payers,
and they were guilty if they omitted the duty cf
examining, and the proposition of the defence
to show that a subsequent Board acts not ac
cording to law is irrelevant.
Judge Brady decided in accordance with the
views of the prosecution. The case then pro
ceeded. A large number of vouchers wero hand
ed to Storrs, the witness for identification,
being those upon which the indictments
against Mayor Hall are based. The wit
ness identified the signatures on the
certificates of audit, but the Mayor’s signature
was wanting in one case. On looking over the
signatures of Mayor Hall, he contested the sig
nature to one certificate. The witness, after ex
amining one certificate some time, said it had all
the appearance of being genuine, but on exam
ining the Mayor’s signature on a warrant, said it
was different from that on the certificate. The
Mayor said he had doubts as to his signatures to
some other certificates. Several warrau ts }> the
vouchers to which were stolon were examined,
and the Mayor’s signature identified,
The Court then took a recess.
In the indictment against Mayor I Tall, 55
vouchers are referred to, but only 10 taro pre
sented, and are used on this trial, all relating to
Keyset’s claims. The remainder are lost, out
the -warrants are preserved. After recous, vari
ous •warrants, including 34 in favor of -Garvey,
wore examined, and’the signatures of tlie Mayor
identified, all but one being admitted/oy him to
be genuine.
Stephen Q. Lynes, formerly County Auditor,
also testified to their genuineness. He saw

Special Despatch to The Chicago Tribune.
New Yobe, Oct. 24.—The Liberal and Demo
cratic managers are in daily receipt of encourag
ing letters from all the Southern States, except
South Carolina, while New York, New Jersey,
Indiana, Connecticut, and New Hampshire are
claimed for Greeley with confidence. . From
Ohio, assurances multiply that the contest there
is dose and doubtfuL It is admitted hereby the
Democratic leaders that Greeley's chances de
pend on the action of the old Democratic party,
and that if it polls its full strength, he will be
elected.' They are satisfied with the numbers
and firmness of Liberal Bepubllcans.
Governor Hendricks writes from Indiana that
Greeley will surely carry that State. Hon. J. E.
McDonald, of Indiana, exnresses the same opin
ion, and also that Ohio is" by no means sure for
Grant. ' ,
-The Administration party with Simon',Came
ron’s aid, are at work corrupting votefa'of New
Jersey, but two canvasses madeby Liberds and
Democrats give Greeley over 6,000 majority.
The activity of Grant greenbacks at present
seems to be confined to New Jersey, Connecti
cut, North Carolina, and New York City. Vic
tory on that side is considered so certain that
all comprehensive work has been stopped.

Peoria, HI., Oct. 24.—One of the largest
political gatherings ever seen in assem
bled in Panneley’B Hall, this evening, to listen
to Governor Hendricks, on the political issues
of the day. He was introduced by Joseph W.
Cochrane, Esq., and was received with loud
cheers. He commenced with a review of the
personal history of the candidates, and then
plunged into a discussion of .the Administration
and its faults. He charged corruption aindfraud
in all departments of the public service; charged
the Administration with an attempt to make
the military power supplant the;
civil, and rob the States of all individual rights
and privileges. He admitted, that Horace Gree
ley was not his choice, .but that he believed he
was honest and would reform the abuses in the
present Administration. We want reform, and,
to effect it, there must be a change. .. All history
proves that no political party, can reform'itself,
and the only way to effect a revolution is ; to put
in an entirely new party. The Governor was en
thusiastically cheered throughout, audhis speech
will have on effect on the campaign. .. ... .
