of snob conclusive character as

Ward, which will lake effect as soon as a sue-

derstand that Powell has been in tho whisky

There was a movement much talked of yester
day to bring inilueiice to bear to reinstate Mr.
johse 0. Glover, toe former occupant, in the
office, but it, though much aiprovea by many ol
tbo legal fraternity, seemed to lock the concur
rence of Mt. Glover himuolf.
Lost evening, while Gen. Webster wss con
voising in toe rotunda of the Palmer House, he
was suddenly a q.rouchod by J. Lyle Dickey,
Corpni ntlon Counsel. Ho said, 4> l want to make

When ihe removal hfci-mo goneially known in
tbo Government building yesterdav it formed,
ofc.uisp, iho chief subject of conversation for
the dav, nod the opinions exprcsieJ were very
nearly unammoua on the main question—that it
was sudden, and curious, and rough on Ward..
but that nobody nowadays OjulU tell what a day
watt to Lung forth. Going stout, a reporter
called on tbo various official*, among them
Collector of tbo Purt, «bo said bo know some
thing of the matter beforehand, but was not at
liberty to state just bow much he did know,
Distriol-Altornoy Ward bod mtioiatcd bis inten
tion to resign some time previous, and bad
placed tbo reason for tins contemplated action
upon tbo ground that the emoluments of the
office wore insufficient, and bo co.iid not afford
to rumaiu iu tbo poaitiou. Why no was asked
to rea-gn, Mr. Jones was unable to say.
Joseph o. glover
was sought and asked who Mr Ward’s probable
successor would be. 110 replied that several
names bud been mentioned in conuocti6ti with
the oilice. tbo most prominent among which
wore those of Mr. Hunter and Mr. Jkmtell.

bo. Of (bo i artioa I have mentioned among the
probable successor# of Mr. Ward, I only know
that Ur. Uuuior is a young lawyer of good repu

prefer the latter if I bad anything to do about it,
aa 1 think bo is probably tbo best fitted, from bis

Collector of tbo Revenue, was called upon for
an opinion about tho removal, but bad none to
offer. It was clear that ho know beforehand
that tbo change was going to be made, but aid
not profess sny great anxiety to (ell what ho
kuo*. Ho was, he said, iu tho datk about who
was to succeed Ur. Waid, aod bad no Idea that
any one knew.
Daring tbo day, Mr. Ward received a large
nmnner of calls from friends sod acquaintances,
who converted with bim about tho affair m which

among Ibo tbiong was Phil Wadsworth, who

Among the theories t- r Mr. Ward's compulsory
resignation is one which has a shadow ot | robs
blliiy based on facia known to have h**ou given
to tho UovoiDtoeut by a geutlemau resident m
this city. A few days ago Mr. Durtou C. Coik
went to Washington ostonilbly to defend tbo in
terests of tbs Northwestern Road, of which be
.B solicitor, against the claim of (ho UcConoel

heirs. Dot It is thought hie real mason for go*
tog was to pronent to the Treasury D"partuu-nt
oertain information which he bad In c.iinti-tion
with Ihn whhky business in Chicago. It in nl*o
said that Mr. Cook has Doeri for a humour
of yea l eon bad terms with Mr. Ward, ami that
any iDformrii.n, faotn, or Inferences, which ho
may have known of to tho prejudice of Sir.
Ward would Lavo been promptly presented l,y
him to tho ofilceis of tfio Gomtimout. Mr.
Cook'i) return, and tho arrival of tho lot*
(er intimating tho willingness to accept Mr.
Ward's resignation are connurreht if not eon*
nocled. Whether it ho (rue that Mr. Cook did
work for and offset Mr. Ward’r. removal cannot
now ho known, but It mar ho stated, on (ho an*
tborify of » gentleman at ono time connected
in business with Mr. Cook, that if he had in bis
poscnpuloii any knowledge to tbo projndlce of
Mr. Ward It would liavo been promptly pre
sented. This view of tho ciho supitosos Mr.
Ward’s connection. In some way, with tbo Whin*
ky King, but no evidence inis over boon adduced
to show that fact.
'Jhe canons fact about tbo removal is that
it should liavo como, hko thunder out of a
clear oky, whero not only was it not expected,
but whoro tho probabilities were that it would
not fall. Thorn ban been an expression of
on tho patt of tho Government officer* In tho
ability and Integrity of Mr. Ward, and only a
few mouths ago Uiu Hollcllor of tho Treasury
flald to a TmatiNE reporter that tho ofllcor* had
every confidence in tho District-Attorney, and
no thought of tils removal was cnteitained.
Tho inleicoco to bo drawn from that fact is,
of course. that somo new dovoluuiuouts liavo
caused the Treasury ofikia a to weaken in their
tmst. It is safe to sav that it tho removal was
made, as appears to have been tho case, because
tbo whisky men were not sooner brought io trio',
thou tbo consaro should have been discriminat
ing enough to havo taken in Judge Bloipett, to
whom it in largely duo that tho trials havo not
before this boon begun. But the Judge ban an
excellent defense to any charges, in tho fact
that be baa boon more than busy for several
months with Lis regular calendar.
It was stated eomo days ago, on tho authority
of a Wasuluglon dispatch, that ono or more of
tho reciifieis who wero under indictment in this
citv bad shown signs of weakening, and had
professed a vrillingno G s to plead gumy on some
counts of tbo indictments found rgamat them
provided that thn o hors could bo quashed. In
quiry was made at the time, but nothing
could bo learned at tbo Government offices
to corroborate tho truth of tho statcmotit.
A later dinpatch from Washington refloated
tho assertion, end said that Col. Frank Baal man,
a member of tbo firm of Qoluou A Eastman,
who was indicted somo timo ago for allotted
frauds, and who is ono of tbo individual who
for personal roa'ons District-Attorney Ward
disliked to prosecute, had mado propositions to
tho ojiborilioi to
on one or mom counts, providing a no! pro?,
wero ontcrod on thootlieis. Kiuco it was not
likely that anything could be learned ftom tbo
lanr-ofilcors of tho Government lu the
present mixed condition of affairs,
a rouortor yesterday called upon Col. Eastman
at tho Pacific Hotel for tho purpose of seeing
what bo had to say upon the suojo.'t. Cot. East
man appeared greatly surprised at tbo informa
tion in tbo possession of tbo news-gatherer, and
hastened to give
of the statement. Ho had not, ho said, made
auv proposition of tbo kind, nor hai auy one op- l
pioacuid him on too subject, •■lf.' 1 continued '
tho Colono\ ‘1 should bear anything about tho
matter, 1 will lot yon know it at ouce,"
The telogiarh dispatches announced yester
day that Gens. i'hil .Sheridan. A. C.
Terry, and W. F. Hancock had bid! appointed
us tho court-martial which is to try Orm U. 11.
Babcock for alleged complicity in tbo St. Louis
Whisky Bing. A Tbidc.se reporter visited Geo.
Suoiidan soon after bis sppriß.il of (no fact, and
ny him was inhumed (bat tho proceeding*
would, in ail probability, bo given to tho public
oolno. Neither of the members of the court
are known to be in favor of keening tho tei-ti
raony secret, and so tho people nil! Lave
a full insight into tbo (Jcnorui’d case.
A prominent Government official is of the opin
ion that no testimony mil be lauen. If Gen,
Babcock's complicity in tho Rlug is strongly in
dlealod, be has'undoubtcdlv been indicted bv a
St. Louis Grand Jury, and in thl* cise tho
Court of Inquiry Aonld bavo nothing to puts upon
ontil after a civil tribunal bad decided tbs case,
uud oven then if Babcocit was f.uintl pui ty thov
coulun’t hurt him, and if innocent they couldn't
vindicate him.
Soteiai Ditvutchto Tht Chicago Tribune,
Bt. Loots, Dec. C.—No Indictment has been
found against Babcock. A rumor baa been ia
circulation daring tbo day that an indictment
bad boon found Saturday morning, and tb.it a
capias fur the arrest of Babcock was now entente
for Washington. Careful inquiry shows (bat
there is no foundation fortbo report, no chargra
being yet preferred. The Grand Jury did no
work to-day, baring ad|ournod until to-morrow
morning. There ia reliable information to the
effect that the Jury bare finished ibelr consid
eration of the evidence against Babcock,
and that an agioomont baa boon male
to vote on tbo question of indictment
to-morrow, Immediately after the meeting. Tbo
Jury desired to consult District-Attorney Dyer
upon some question of law before coming to a
vote, and, as tbit official was absent from tbo
city and will not return until to morrow, ad
journment wsa bad until tbo desired opinion
could be had. It may bo considered quho c r
tain that if no bill is found to-morrow, Babcock
will not bo indicted at all. The tardy action of
the jnrv in failing to find an indictment has led
many peojilo to behove that lie will escape on
There has been a good deal of foolish talk

to favor Babcock. Booster Henderson is an

Dyer, and that he has seen nothing m the con
duct of that officer to persuade bun that bo Is
paitisl to Babcock, and that, if Babcock is in
dicted, bo will bo piobscutod to tbo full extent
of the law.
Judge Treat did nothing to day )n the whisky
casts. The case of Bobb, an indicted rectifier,
and one of the leading spirit** of what is known
as the Curb-titouo Bing, will probablv come op
to-morrow. Bnbb was not a member of Ibo
Wbisky-Biog proper, but an actor in the side

Tbo first eases or note which will coma up for

how—and amidst thedeuse fog of legal subtleties
which envelops these proaecuthns, otid in
which somn of tho cases would seem liable to bo
lost, it is next to impossible to discover bow—
no cane has yet been brought to trial which Im
periled the concealed powers snd big thieves of
tho King. When
was tried, developments were expected that
would disclose the true inwardness of tho Ring;
but, bin indictment being for the exceedingly
mild offense of neglect of official duty, tho case
was open to tho easy defense which waa raado,
that I'rskmo waa a guilolean Innocent, who had
been imposed upon bv wicked subordinated,
ami on tluit defense ho was oaeilv acquitted, a
brace of his o»n subordinates talcing tbo wiU
nesß'ixand anil testifying to his dento ignorance
of pretty much everything connected with
the management of his own office.
This, too, was evidently true onooxb. Whether
Kinkino was kept in ofilen because ho was a dis
tinguished incapable of tho moat imbecile type,
or w lielhnt ho was tolerated upon the sole condi
tion that ho should lot tho office bo run exclu
tivclv by tbo Ring a appointees, is Immaterial
now to inquire, ilia trial iliachiiwd that while
Drskino was Collector tho office was run by tho
Ring's appointees.—and that was a*.l. The evi
dence lu bis case indicated, with irresistible
force, that the Ring opciations hero hod boon on
altogether to.) oxicna.vo a scale to have been
simply tbo work of tho distiller* and of the
miserable small-fry Gaugers, Htorekoopers. and
deputies in the Collector s olfice. Tho £5.01)0
