most In our minds; largely to tbs res.oration of har
mony, and jieaoo, and comfort In his family, at an
Indispensable condition ol doing the good work. I
bad learned through Moulton that his wlfs was not
doing her part, and that be was subject, aside from all
other harassment* and anxieties, to be received with
sullen looks and distressful complaints at home, and
that Mrs. Tilton had said that TUtou and Moulton and
I were consulting together for (he Interest of Tilton,

that there should be some efforts brought to bear uu

I thought of Tilton about (hut juried, but you usk mo

Mr. Fullerton—N'ow 1 move io strike that out.
judge Nolleeu (to wiimus)—The iuqutry Is whether
at thst time you believed the charges were made in
good faith 7
A,—Originally X believed bo made them in good
faith.
J udgo N’ollson—At the lime of writing tho letter 7A;
—At the time of writing (ho letter 1 suppose that that
was my impression,
Fuliurtuu (to witness)— You believed at the time of

whoa he made It originally.

of tho noblest of things 7 A.—ll watt a representation
made to mo by Moulton of hla slate of mind toward
Dowon, toward his own jtroepccbi, his pluck and de
termination to work toward mo and toward hla own
household, 1 did not think Tdtou was acting or en
deavoring to act a heroic jisrt,

task if you three people ware made frlcuda again 7 A.
—I certainly did.
Q.—And after cocertalnlng directly from him what
evidences ho had that you had made Improper ad
vances to his wife? A.—That is predicated ou the
grounds that wo weru made friends again. To be
made friends In such a slats of facta, that la totally lu
comjmUldc with his confiding belief in the charge.

hla wile’s atiectiou from him, and the dlttrcvi which
he hud found lu Uli own household, and my complicity
with Bowou lu Injuring him lu u business prospect.

1 do not recall charges of improper proposals now al
luded to ou thin occasion. At that Umiihesald the
stories ell ciliated about him were those of another fel
low with his Initials, who went about the country do
ing all sorts of thing*, mid for which ho was credited,
No allusion was thou made by either him or me with
regard to improper proposals. This seemed tu be the
breaking of all difficulties, and It was In a wty
to a fair settlement, which I believed time
would Direct, so far asha was concerned. I did not
think It was proper that my intercourse with the
family should bo resumed. Tho May interview was
tho brief one to which 1 received a summons from
Tilton. When 1 went thorn something scorned to
have disturbed him. Wo talked fur fifteen or twenty
minutes, and in some remarks I made to him I tame
over uml sat ou his knee. Me. Tilton camn hi and
laughed, and came over and kissed me. I offered no
objection, nor did I make any reply then to these
charges. At tho Interview of lira middle of February,

came with her tKiby Inn omiiic to Mr. Moulton's, I
think also I met her In the f«ll of lh7l ut her house,
mis Interview lasted about half an hour. Mm. Til
ton did not avow then that I had alienate 1 her affec
tions. Ido not remember that anything was said
about tho charges of improper pro|/>v.ls to her,
or tho retraction letter, or Its recalling. No
word of admonition, no word of rebuke,
passed between ns, hut there w«* it Rcnplur.il ad

by Mrs. Tilton was, 1 i ltaume. inym f, and this was lo

Bho uudertlood that some of her letters
had been given to Moulton, I undmtoid so from
what ho said to mo when 1 «*'d It would lo safe b»-
cau«o my sister wua there. I meant they would not hi

want to account to her for my absence. 1 went to see
her, tut not by appointment. lou not remember that
Iwn asked to call, but presume it was intliodar

her, but never spoke to her on any other
than religious topics. I communicated to her
the fact that my wife was about to takettio boat for
Havana aud Florida on Thursday. 1 pmuine I went to
New Haven. Tills was not the time 1 mot Tilton on

fined entirely to religious subjects, [Shown another

I took it to Mr. Moulton, that It might bo eafe. 1 do
not recollect that I explained to htm what it meant.
Thodale U Out. 34. There la no year given, nor do 1

tially separated from her, aud she was in groat trial.
Hho had nobody to advise with aud commit, aud 1 said
to her, 44 Well, consult with mo os If Xwu your sou. 1
will give you all tho help 1 can.”

Q.—Did you explain any of these things to Moulton

Q,—Did you kuow then? A.— l don't suppose I

to her of an Improper character—
Kvarts—Head tbo rest of that.
Witness—Will you read tho whole of It, please, sir 7
I'ulleriun (reading)—" Aud again I expressed
some surprise, probably by my attitude. 1 don’t
recollect that 1 talked, but bu drew from his pocket a
strip of paper about 6 Inches by l«tf—like that—
and read to me what purported to be
(he statement of his wife to him that
Beecher bad solicited her to become bis wife
to all intents and purposes, which were signified by
that term or substantially that.
Q. —Now, didn’t he charge you with improper ad
vances? A. —Strictly speaking, he did not.
Q.—Well, I don’t want Rtiythlug but strictly speak
ing. 1 want you to strictly speak and answer tbo
question put to you. Didn’t ho charge you with lur
ing improper relations with bis wife? A.—l do not
ccusider that he dhl, Ptmlly and literally speaking.
Q,—Did you give evidence that I have Juitreud in
your direct examination? A.—l presume 1 did. 1
hsvo not read It since.
Q.—ls it true an I read It 7 A.—l presume it la true
In the seme In which 1 meant It.
Q.—Didn't you understand yourself an saying In the
evideu.e that ho iiisdu the charge first and then forti
fied It by producing thu certificate of hla wife V A,—lf
I used the word 44 charge,”
Q.—Did you understand yourself as saying that 7A.
—Mease repeat the question.
(J,—Didn't you understand yooaelf In your
direct examination as saying: 44 Mr. Tilton
made tbo charge o{ Improper overtures to
bis wife, and then produces a certificate of his wife In
substantiation of the charge 7" A. —1 didn't Intend It
to be so understood, sir.
Q.—You did not. Very well; let it stand
there. Let mo read to you and
aeo whether you over said this
at any other (lino? A.—Ho thru declared that I had
injured him in his family relations, had joined with
hts motncr-hi-law In producing discord in his
house, had advised a separation, and had alienated his
wile's affections from him; had corrupted her muni
nature, aud taught hrr to he insincere, lying, sud
hypocritical, aud ended by chaining that 1 bad made
wicked proposals to her? A.—Very likely 1 said so,
sir.
Q.—Kow, iu ssying that, did you refer to tho same
Interview between you aud Tiltou, on tho aoih of De
cember. IB7U 7 A.—l did, sir.
(j.—Then Igo back to iho letter. Well, I will put
this qne,t!on to yon. Do you mean uow to ray that
Tiltou did nut uuo tho night of the llUth of December,
1870. charge you with having made wicked proposals
to his wlfo 7 A.—l xueau to *ut«—
Q.—Do yon mean to state that that didn't take place 7
A.—l mean to state that bo charged me according to
ruj present—
g.—No, do. Now, Mr. Doccher, If you please, 1
don’t vsutwhat you support.
Judge Nellaon—That la the only way to let witness
answer, ami if tho answer Is not proper wo can strike it
out, or n part of tho auswer.
Fullerton—l ask him if he uow means to say that
Tilton dlil not make that charge nr;aln>£ him on tho
night of the IthUt of December, ,HJi).’ II» cither luvunu
it or he does not mean It, and ho can tell no by a sim
ple auswer.
Judgo Ndlion—Ho might moan it in oue ncnco and
not mean It iu another scute. 1 think we mud toko
tho answer.
Fullerton—Your Honor wifi perceive that Mr.
Oeecbcr meant to say that ho wim charged with Im
proper advances by Theodors Tilton on tho night of
the U Jilt of December, 1870, orbs was nut so charged, in
his Judgment. Ido not waul any oration about it. 1
wish to know simply the oihiriUoq of hia own mum,
tho Judgment ho formed iu regard to that interview.
It certainly la a very simple question.
Judge Nellatm—WTiat you read Just now was not
from hU direct examination.
Fullerton—What 1 read first was from tho direct ex
amination. What 1 road In the second place was what
Mr. Ikochcr said upon another occasion.
Judge Kctlaon (to the stenographer)— Bead (ho last
question. Tho stenographer read thu question, nu
follows:
g.— Do you mean, uow, to uy that Tilton did not,
or* the night of tho 1101 h of Dccmber, 187 d, charge you
with having made wlcktd proposals to Lis wife?
Fvarla—Your Honor Is awttrs that thu whole inquiry
has been upon (ho point wheihcr thu husband made
tho charge as distinct from making the chargo that his
wife li»d communicated to him.
Judgo Neilson—Now, stlppoe tlio witness should
answer thaPTillon did miks that charge. It would
be legitimate on a redirect esaiuluullou to luqulro ou
whut ho alleged u woe founded.
Beach-Undoubtedly, but ibis difficulty, if your
Honor please, arises upon tbo volunteer declaration of
■be witness that Tilton did not chares him with malt*
inn lmproj«r proposals to his wife.
Evurls— Excepting through hU wife.
Bench—Not excepting through his wife, hut that
be road a )taper or statement of Ills wife's making Uul
imputation, Now wo liavo read what he staled ou his
direct examination. We have read what ho slated
upon another occasion, whorelu ho explicitly declares
that Tlltuu did make tncee charges, nud we now oik
him, for the purpose of enabling him to rectify or
coiiUrm the decimation which be baa made
within a few minutes, whether be meant
lo eay Tilton did uot upon that occasion
make that Accusation. We don't aak him
what ha does mean lo say, we uek blni whether he
meant to eay that.
~4udgo Nillsou [to wllnossl—Give us the boat Answer
you can.
Wituoe*—Vrom my present point of view?
Judge Neilson—Yc«,
The prituiM-X do not regard Tilton as hiving made
that charge |>ersonsily. Jlv charged—
Fullerton—One moment. Did you say that (read*
log) j “ ]|o ended by saying that 1 bad made a
wicked proposal to her. Until he had reached
this I bad llsleued with silence and contempt under
the luijirruiuii that he waa attempting to bully me,
but with the last charge no produced u
paper purporting to ho a writhed stale*
lut-nt of a previous confession nude to him
by hla wife of her love fur me, and Ibat I bad made
proposals to her of an Improper nature.”
Q.—Do you recollect that? A.—l think very likely
those arc my words,
g,—Preceding the confession of his wife, or produc
tion of tin ocrtlflcate of hie wife, did he uot charge
you with making lmproi«r proposals to blewlfo ? A*—
No ; 1 do uot think be did, sir.

I AM KOT ALLOWED TO,

but, of course, 1 must defer to thu belter Judgment of

Mr. FollrrUm—After having charged yon with msk

roetut appointment of C, C. Trowbridge as Provisional
Deceiver of (be road tcude<l to give lh« tnca axHurunira
that they would bo properly cared for, yet u Urgo
number became uneasy, evidently fearing that tho
movement for ft Deceiver was a loyal dodge
to cut them off entirely. This Impression con
tinued to grow, and, It being next to lin.
passible to explain tho various phases cf every
question raised, the discontent became general. A
number of private meeting* wero held ftll aluii? the
Hue, but, up to to-day, no concerted movement was
made. This morning the following circular waa
distributed among the employe*:
Drtboit, April 17, 1875.—An order of the Court
directs tho Deceiver to pay current wages sud other
running exjicDec* out of tho receipts of the mouth,
and, if tmysurphis remains to appropriate the ssmo
to the payment of arrears of wagon. Under this order
the Deceiver will |>ay bh soon after the let of
May as the rolls can be made the wages for
the last half of April, end os rapidly an pdsslblo will
pay the arruuni for February, March, and tho first half
of April, (Signed) C. C. TnowuniDoK. Deceiver.
A largo number of the nun were unable to divine
the intentions of tho Deceiver, and tbov forthwith re
solved upon a general strike, on tho ground that (he
result of tho action timed in the circular would bo to
deprive them of uuy chince cf getting their back due*.
A committee waited upuu Mr. Trowbridge ond naked
him for payment on their baric dues first;
meanwhile work in yard* and on trains
is being generally suspended. Mr. Trowbridge
said that, under the order uf the Court, he must pay
current wage* before am-aragos, but would do all bu
could. Thu strikers then toox legal advice, and, this
afternoon, on a conference Mwi-eu Mr, Trowbridge
and the employes* committee, it wua «gr<*d trial an
effort should bo made lo hc;»re a modification of tbs
order of tne Court so ns to allow the Deceiver to apply
ail the revenue* of the road to (ho payment of tho
men. During tho day all work save the running of
passenger trains has been suspended along tho line.
