,„,lhrr Testimony Helote the Com mission. New York September 21.—The Pacific railroad commission resumed their exami nation this morning. Mr. Coben. in answer to requests for vouchers as to the large disbursements made by Huntington, stated that Governor .Stanford had refused to forward them, as the commission had already a great many ;IU portant documents of the company which it bad failed to return, and he did not pro pre to entrust any more such papers with the commission. C. P. Huntington was particularly ques tioned in reference to these vouchers, which hear his signature and appear to be for legal services and expense account. It all happened so long ago that witness could not remember exactly how this money was used, but it was not for any except legal and proper purposes. Mr. Anderson asked witness if he thought it proper to use this money in payment of large lees to members of congress at a time when bills ot pecuniary interest to the Central Pacific company were pending, and before the lted members had voted there ing tion Witness answered : "I should hesitate before paying such fees. Of course when we wanted legal advice, and we required it often, we always wanted the best.'' Huntington said that between 1872 and the present tune there had been many bills in congress affecting the Central Pacific company, aud it was necessary to collect a great deal of information regard the road for the informa nt' the members of congress and This cost a great deal of money, and it w as also necessary to retain aud employ mm to approach Congressmen and explain them just how matters stood. Oue man . ould not see all of these legislators, and it was necessary lor a great many to act. The witness said it was lively times for the Central Pacific, while Tom .Scott's pro ject was before Congress. The witness wrote a great many letters to I). P>. Colton At this time, which, he understood, bad been stolen trout a sate in San Francisco by four agents who tried to sell them to the witness, but he declined to buy. The commissioner produced copies of these letters w itb the names omitted, being enjoined in San Prancisco by the Central Pacific from producing the names aud originals. The witness declined to till the blank in one letter, in which he characterized a Cal ifornia congressman as a "d—d—hog.'' In the other Scott said he "switched certain Senators to his side, but that they could have been switched back. This, he ex plained, meant that they could be brought hack to the Union Pacific's side by proper argument. Mr. Huntington was beginning to get excited and exclaimed: I never wrote a letter that I would not be willing to have published to the world and posted on every bulletin. I never used money to influence congressmen. It would be strange that if among 400 there should not be some cor rupt men, though, Mr. Huntington said, he didn't think that Mr. Scott ever paid or offered to pay for the votes of members of Congress. As to bis statement in another letter that the committee on railroads in the House was fixed up for Scott, the wit ness said : 1 don't think that anybody was bought with money. Here the witness be gan to get angry with the suggestions in Anderson's interrogatories, that there was something venal in the language of his letters aud he proceeded to make an im passioned speech. He said : "A lot ot thin-skinned politicians are always ready to place a wrong construction on my lan guage aud I see ihat it has even disturbed this commission/' Commissioner Anderson—"These letters are produced to ascertain if any ot the money represented by these unexplained^ vouchers was used to purchase legislation.'' Mr. Huntington—"! can say emphatically that it never was.'' It was decided that he should submit some scheme for settling the affairs ot the road and the government at Friday's ses sion. New York, September 22.—The mem bra of the Pacific railroad commission were on hand this morning to resume their labors. Mr. Huntington was not present but in halt an hour after the appointed time he appeared. After some desultory conversation Huntington took the stand and the examination into the different letters sent to Colton was again entered upon. The first was in relation to having convinced a certain Senator from Florida of the advantages of the Southern Pacific roads to the Gulf Slates. The witness did not know whether it was Senator Jones or Senator Conover he referred to. He know both gentlemen personally. The next was relative to having a California Senator friendly to the road. Nothing could be extracted from Hunt ington on this head, except that A. A. Sar gent, whose name Commissioner Anderson mentioned, would have been a most ad mirahle man for the position. He v.as well and able, and above suspicion. Following this came a letter commenting npon the advisability of purchasing Sena tor Jones' (of Nevada) railroad between Los Angeles and Independence, so as to in duce him *o favor the Union Pacific and Northern P&cific railways'refund bill. He bought the road, which cost $716,000, for $200,000. Jones was hard up and witness knew it would make him take a greater interest in the Pacific roads if he took the other one otf his hands, so he took it. Another letter brought out Mr. Hunt ington's opinion of socialism and the con gress of 1878: "This congress is an agrar ian camp. It is composed of the worst body of men that ever got together in the country." "Oo you recognize your sentiments in that passage?'' asked Mr. Anderson. "Well, of late years I have remarked there lias been a considerable inllux of these anarchists and socialists into pub lic places. They cannot make mouey themselves honestly. Put I have remarked that $5,000 is a great deal to them, and they will do a lot for less. Mr. Huntington knew nothing of the Contract aud Finance Company. He knew that after building the C. P. the Companys liabilities were big and its assets nothing, and the C. P. stock was of less value thau the amount of its debts. "I never kept the l>ooks of the company, and carry most of my own business memoranda under my hat," said he, "and they very seldom tool me." Mr. Anderson asked Huntington it lie had any scheme for settlement to lay be töre the commission as to the trouble be tween the road and the government, and it was decided that Huntington should pre pare a report, which would he ready in fifteen days and could be annexed to his testimony New York, September 22.—After recess the witness went into the methods ot the men employed in starting the Central Pa cific. The government, he said, took the company's j>ower of repaying them quickly when it subsidized the parallel lines. The company lias fulfilled every obligation ot the government. It is they who have^ broken the contract. The expenses ot construction were enormous. At present the government owes the Central Pacific two million dollars, which it will net pay, and it wont pay the interest on anything. The witness read a paper, giving the parlia mentary expenses of some English roads - which, by comparison, he said, showed that the Central Pacific's expenses were very small. Mr. Huntington asserted that the government paid the Central Pacific less lor carrying the mails over the Sierra Nevadas than it paid on the level eastern roads. Commissioner Littler asked for the offi cial data as to this, as it was a grievous charge against the government. Mr. Huntington stated that he believed there was more than politics behind the investigation. Numerous parties are short on the market of the Central Pacific, and I believe they are helping to push this in vestigation to bring stockB down. The witness stated that, although a director of the Pacific Mail, he never voted at a meet ing as he was more interested in the rail ways, which were antagonistic to it. Every thing he did was in the interest of the railways. General Granville Dodge testified regard ing the various details of the construction of the Union Pacific. New York, September 23.—Gen. Jno. Fremont was a prominent figure at to day's meeting of the Pacific railway commission. He had been subpoenaed at his New Jersey home by Sergeant-at-arms Walsh, and had come to testify with regard to some of Gen. Stone's statements to the commission when it was in Omaha. The examination of Gen. Dodge was resumed as to the cost of constructing the railway. New York, September 23.—Judge John M. Thurston was next called. He was ap pointed assistant solicitor to the Union Pa cific for Nebraska in 1875. Before his regu lar appointment he had done service for the company in assisting to have recon sidered by the Nebraska legislature a hill that was injurious to the company's inter est. The witness stated that the people of Nebraska do not like railroads and the mernben of the legislature vie with each other in ottering bills that are detrimental to railroads. The witness' duty was to meet the anti-railroad people and argue with them. In reply to a question of Gov. Pattison regarding certain vouchers, the witness said that the money had been used in "stumping" two counties to prevent an opposition railroad from coming in. There was no attempt to buy voters then or at any other time. Gen. John C. Fremont next took the stand. 1 le said that Gen. Ewing aud others paid $203,000 for llie Leavenworth, Paw nee & Western railroad in 1886. There was scarcely any construction there. The General then retired, receiving about what he paid. He never had any hand in buy ing votes. At his own request Gen. Thomas Ewing took the stand and made a lengthy state ment respecting his connection with the Leavenworth, Pawnee & Western road, and especially in reference to certain con tracts alleged to have been made in aid of the passage of the first Pacific railroad law. He was connected with the roads as director about one year hut never had any active part in its management. What few contracts lie had any knowledge ot were made in consideration of legitimate service. Of any others he had no knowl edge whatever. ( Grand Lodge Adjourns.

Denver, Col., Sept. 22.—The day which begau so auspiciously with a magnificent parade of veteran firemen of New York, was followed this afternoon by a parade of sovereign grand lodge, which proved to be one of the finest ever witnessed in the city of Denver. The line began to form on Fifteenth and Stout streets early in the af ternoon, and promptly at two the proces sion, headed by the opera house band start ed. The following was the line of march : From Fifteenth and Stout streets on Stout to Seventeenth, to California, to Twenty Seventh, passing in review the grand sire and members of the sovereign grand lodge. Counter-marching on California street to Nineteenth, to Larimer, to Fourteenth, to Curtis, to Eighteenth, where the subordi nate lodges, encampments and carriages were dismissed. The Patriarchs Militant proceeded out Eighteenth to Stout street, thence passing the Patriarch Militant headquarters at the Albany, where the command was reviewed by the Lieutenant General. The streets aloug the line were handsomely decorated with evergreens and thousands ot flags and emblems of the order. Each canton was led by a band from their jurisdiction, and when passing their respective head quarters were loudly cheered by lrieuds and spectators. The Patriarchs militant were under command of Lieutenant Geueral John C. Underwood, with Briga dier General O. J. Semmes as Adjutant General aud Colonel Wm, S. Frost as As sistant Adjutant General. The Lieutenant General was escorted by his immediate staff' officers and by other unattached mounted officers under Brigadier Foster, ot Connecticut. General Charles A. Cush man of Massachusetts, commanded the first division, with Brigadier E- Wilkerson in immediate command ot the brigade. The Militant brigade moved after the commander aud his escort as follows : The first regiment,consisting ol a canton of Excelsior No. 7, of Chicago, Ills., Paran No. 1' of St. Louis, Mo., Kansas City No. 14, of Kansas City, Atkins No. 1, of Pa ducah, Ky., Clay Center No. 8, ol Clay Center, Ks.

Lieutenant Colonel Kuykendall, com mander ot these three regiments, formed the militant part of the parade, after which followed the civic parade, commanded by Col. Austin W. Hoyke, as chief marshal, with the various post grands as his aides. The first division of the civic parade was composed of subordinate lodges now in Denver. The third division, or second of the civic parade, was commanded by Major Wm Wise. This consisted of officers and members of the Sovereign Grand Lodge in carriages. It is estimated that over 8,000 men were in line during the march. The session of the Grand Lodge was taken np with the discussion of the appeal in the cases of Alexander Morton vs. the Grand Lodge and the Encampment of Delaware, in which the case was decided in favor of Morton. An invitation from Colnmbus, Ohio, signed by Governor Foraker, Mayor Bruck and the President of the Chamber of Com merce, was read, asking that the next an nual session be held at that city. No ac tion will be taken on the matter till the last day. Sessions are being held to-night in which only routine business is being transacted. Denver,' September 23.—The fifth day's session of the Sovereign Grand'Lodge was called to order this morning at 9 o'clock and immediately took up the routine busi ness of no general importance.

Every day some pet theory, long held and honestly venerated, is being demolish ed and sent to the limbo of myth with Tell s apple, Washington's cherry tree and other old acquaintances. Now the age rings in trees have to sutler limbonization, if the word may he allowed. Mr. R. W. Furras, an agent of the United States Forestry Department - who has given much attention to the age ot a tree as indicated by rinus, as well as to the period at which trees of different species stop growing and that at which the wood is at its best, has reached some conclusions of general inter est. He say s : "Concentric or anonal rings, which were once accepted as good legal evidence, fail, except where climate, soil, temperature, humidity and all other surroundings are regular and well balanced. Otherwise they are mere guesswork. The only region within my knowledge where either rings or measurement were reliable indications are in the secluded, even and regularly tempered valleys of the Southern Pacific coast." Annual measurements of white elm, catalpa, soft maple, sycamore, pig hickory, cottonwood, chestnut, box elder, honey locust, coffee tree, burr, white oak, black walnut, osage orange, white pine, red cedar, mulberry and white willow (nineteen species), made in Southeastern Nebraska, show that "annual growth is very irregular, sometimes scarcely percep tible and again quite large,'' and this he attributes to the difference in sea sons. As trees increase in age inner rings decrease in size, sometimes almost disap pearing. Diminished rate in growth after a certain age is a rule. Of four great beeches mentioned in London, there were three, each about seventeen feet in girth, whose ages were respectively 60, 102 and 200 years. Mr. Furras found twelve rings in a black locust six years old, twenty-one rings in a shell bark hickory of twelve years, ten rings in a pig hickory of six years, eleven rings in a wild crahapple of live years, and only twenty rings in a chest nut oak of twenty-four years. An Ameri can chestnut of only four years had nine rings, while a peach of eight years had only five rings. Dr. A. M. Childs, a resident of Nebraska from 1854 to 1882, a careful observer for the Smithsonian Institution, who counted rings on some soft maples eleven years and two months old, found on one side of the heart of one of them forty rings, and not less than thirty-five anywhere, which were quite distinct when the wood was green, but after it had been seasoned only twenty four rings could be distinguished. Another expert says that all our northern hard woods make many rings a year, sometimes as many as twelve, but as the last set of cells in a year's growth can always be de termined, except when from local causes there is in any particular year a little or no cell growth. This may give a large number on one side. Upon the Pacific coast of North America trees do not reach the point where they stop growing nearly as early as those of the Atlantic coast. Two hundred years is nearly the greatest age attained on the eastern side of the continent by trees that retain their vigor, while 500 years is the ^se of several species on the western coast, and one writer is confident that a sequoia which was meas ured was not less than 2,376 years old. At Wrangel, latitude 36 deg., 60 min., a West erm hemlock, six feet in diameter at the stump, was four feet in diameter 132 feet farther up the trunk and its rings showed 432 years. But in the Old Bartram Gar den, near Philadelphia, not more thau 150 years old, almost all the trees are on the down grade. The Quercus Rohar, England's pride, which at home is said to live 1,000 years, has grown to lull size and died in this garden, and the foreign spruces are following suit. Silver firs planted in 1800 are decaying. The great difference in the longevity ot trees upon the western and eastern coasts of continents in the North ern Hemisphere seems to be due to the warm, moist air carried by strong and per manent ocean currents from the tropics northeasterly, in both the Pacific and At luotic oceans, which make the climate both moist and equable in high latitudes. In Sitka, latitude 57 deg., as much as 100 inches of rain have fallen in a year, and the harbor is rarely frozen enough to hinder the passage ot boats. In some winters scarcely any ice is seen .—Lumber World. 9. A. E. T. U. S. Marshal Short in his Accounts. Washington, September 22.—A. special examiner is now examining the accounts of Gen. N. P.

A small party of soldiers, well mounted with horses and loaded as lightly as possible, left Hnachuca four days ago and will pro ceed 250 miles north to Fort Apache. They wili be pursued by troops from all the posts in southern Arizona.
