HENRY HARTMAN—SCENES AND INCI
* DENTS.
The attendance at tha Opening of the trial
waa larger than ever as the evidence given
the day before was of such an exciting na
ture that it seemed to attract large numbers.
The first-witness called was Henry Hart
man, who sworn, said :
" I live in New York City.
Mr. Hagert—I propose to show that AVes
tervelt, Mosher and DowUas were seen
together in New York, by the admission and
statements of Westervelt made to this wit
ness in reference to this transaction.
Witness—I am a laborer, employed by
the New Bedford and New York Steamship
Company ; I know the prisoner intimately ;
I have been in the liabit of visiting his
house ; I saw him almost every day during
the-summer and fall of 1874 at No. 74 Mott
street, the place kept by Charles H. Strom
berg ; I was tending bar there ; I have seen
Mosher once and Douglars twice; I have
seen Westervelt in company of those two
men at No, 74 Mott Street; they were help
ing us fix up the bar the day they arrived,
the day I saw them and was introduced to
them; to the best of my knowledge that
was in July: Westervelt introduced" me to
them ; he told me they came from Philadel
phia ; he told me that a few minutes after
he introduced me to them ; I saw Douglass
about fourteen days after that at the same
place; the prisoner was there when Doug
lass came; I never saw either Mosher or
Douglass after that; I first heard <j( tie ab
duction of Charlie
first part of July; then the abduc
tion was in the papers; Westervelt
read it and told me he would bet two shill
ings he could tell some of the parties in it;
he told me at the time lie left that he was
going off for a day or two; he was absent
two days; I saw him on his return; he said
he was not with Mosher and Douglas up the
river; Westervelt told me one evening to
let him know whenever I saw a chalk mark
on the cellar door of No. 74 Mott street; that
that was a signal that those parties were in
town, and he'knew where to find them then;
that was in the latter part of September or
in October, I don't remember which; that
was three or four days before the saloon
closed in Mott street; I remember the kill
ing of Mosher and Douglass at Bay Ridge;
I saw Westervelt the following morning
after the killing; I went to Brooklyn with
him; he requested me to go with him; he
gave me as a reason for asking me to go,
t hat in c ise lie should be detained by the
District Attorney of Brooklyn, lie wanted
me to tell Superintended! Walling that he
was locked up; on that {rip to Brooklyn I
had conversation with him on the subject of
Charlie Ross; he told me those were the
parties, and also if they were arrested the
child wouldn't live three days; I asked him
if he knew where it was, whether it was in
a hut or a cave somewhere, "I will never
tell you;" lie did once tell me that Mosher
had the child up the river somewhere, but
where he did not know; he toTcl me that in
Brooklyn.
Cross-examined—I reside at No. 10 Eld
ridge street, New York city; have been em
ployed as a laborer by the steamship com
pany Binee last January; I arrived here last
night at 8 o'clock, and am stopping at the
American Hotel; don't know who pays my
expenses; they are not paid by myself; I
don't expect to be paid for coming here, and
have not been; I was asked to come here by
Mr. Walling, Mr. Lewis, and Mr. Ross; first
became acquainted with him on the police
force in 1878; my intimacy with him com
menced shortly before we were dismissed
from the department; by we I mean myself,
Westervelt, and a man named Riley ; we
were dismissed for not-reporting a lottery of
fice; Westervelt and I had a trial; Wester
velt submitted his case and did not stand
trial; he and I consulted counsel as to the
returns to the police department; we consul
ted with Colonel Fellowes in the summer of
1874; as near as I can come to it, it was in
June; Colonel Fellowes is not our counsel,
and lie couldn't take our case to Court till
we paid $50 apiece, which we couldn't do;
this might have been in-July, but not in Au
gust; saw Fellowes' clerk 'when the fee of
$50 was asked; saw Mosher, Douglass, and
Westervelt in the saloon before thi6 visit to
Colonel Fellowes.
I wus not working for-a salary at the sa
loon but boarded with the proprietor from
June until October; I sold some "Mofhic"
during that time; saw Douglass by himself
in the saloon in August; between the 15th
and 25th, I think; 1 told the proprietor of
the saloon, Stromberg, that Mosher and
Douglass had come from Philadelphia and
that Westervelt had said lie would bet two
shillings that he could tell some parties who
were in the cus<* they came into the saloon
together in July; next saw Douglass in Sep
tember; he came in alone; Westervelt was
there; th«a- stayed about ten minutes, and
after having a short talk walked off togeth
er; never SRW.them again; they never came
to th|t house again; the first visit was at
noon, and, the second one about 10 o'clock
in the morning; first learned in September
that {here was a reward offered for the ab
ductors of.ChavHaRoss; that reward offered
was $20,000; I took no steps to arrest ihem
and claim the reward: I was doing nothing
at that time; I gave information of these
men after the killing.
Q—Is it not the fact that you
reliance upon the statement of V
until after the killing, and giMJtu
thay were the parties ? >
A—I had not enough tq beflitje it, but I
had my suspicions ; 1 hadtaen «i police of
ficer, but I dfd't think ft worth while to
tell the authorities of ft.
Rc-cxamined—Westervelt ktfd me that he
was' working the case with Walling; that
influenced me not to go tto Walling; first
learned the names of Moshfr and Douglass
the day after the killing from Westervelt,
hi Brooklyn; he introduced them to me as
Smith and Anderson, or Henderson ; it was
in August I saw Douglass, and not in Sep
tember.
Re-cross examined—Tlic way I fix that it
was fourteen days after I saw Mosher and
Douglass together that I saw Douglass
alone, is by going on a fishing party; don't
know what day in the week it was on which
the first visit to the saloon occurred; I did
not, in July or August, tiel Stomberg that
these two men were Mosher and Douglass.
Q—Did you tell Stromberg that one of the
men introduced to me as Smith and Ande ■

son or Henderson by AVcstervelt was AVest
ervelt's brother-in-law.
A.—Yea, air; can't tell exactly the month
but thluk that he Introduced Smith
brother-in-law; that was in July; I might
have repeated to Stromberg that one of them
waa Weatervelt'a brother-in-law; I did tell
8tromberg some time of the introduction
that the man introduced at Weatervelt'a
brother-in-law had served five years in the
State Prison; in July We6tervelt had a
mustache, and was rather pale-looking; had
no whiskers whatever; in August his ap
pearance was the same, and so it was in
June; saw him in the latter part of July,
both in the saloon and at his own house, and
his appearance was the same then; saw him
occasionally through the months of July,
August, and September, and his appearance
was the same; but I believe for about two
weeks he wore side-whiskers, either in
August, September, or October; they were
of a two or three weeks growth; in Novem
ber he was shaved off again, with the excep
tion of a mustache ; he had nothing but a
mustache in December; the morning after
the meeting I left Westervelt at t)ie City
Hall, Brooklyn ; I knew his errand was to
claim the bodies ; he had a letter for Super
intendent Walling to that effect; I didn't
read It, and he didn't tell me what was in it.
Mr. Hagart hero offered in evidence six
photographs of the lost child, the .Mayor's
proclamation, a letter from Superintendent
Walling to Captain Heins, of September 11;
also the letter from William Mosher to Mrs.
Murdoch, dated June 26,1874, signed Wil
iam Hendricks, and the tw,o envelopes re
ferred to by Westervelt, and in the testi
mony of Officer Titus.
1 he Court then took a recess. Immedi
ately upon its. re-assembling the question
was taken up as to the admissibility of the
letters as eydience. The matter was warm
ly discussed all the afternoon up to the ad
journment of Court.

THE REACH TRADE IN NEW YORK
AND BALTIMORE.
THE FRUIT BETTER—PRICES OX WEDNES
DAY.
Tile receipt of peaches in New York on
AVedncsday were 167 Jar loads by the P. W.
& B. R. R., 5 ear loads by the X. J. S. R.R.,
4,000 by the Old Dominion Steamship Com- ■
pany's steamer from Lewes, Del., 1 ear lo
cal, making in all 178 car loads. Since the
season opened, 3,''08 car loads, or 1,654,000
baskets, making ou average of nearly; 80,
000 baskets per day for the past 43 days, have
been received. The supply of baskets is
great, but a very steady demand prevents
any serious accumulation. There would be
no surplus if .all the fruit was in prime con
dition- Crates were very dull. Shippers
generally buy from receivers of baskets, as
their orders require or speculative ideas
prompt, and pack in new crates. The sup
ply includes Raccrlpcs and extra large late
Crawfords. Some of the latter are v<?ry
handsome. Not many years ago such sped-'
mens could only be seen at fruit exhibitions,
while this season it will he no unusual thing
to see them piled up on the commission
.stands. All of the pickings run true—that
is, the crop is so heavy that there is no time
to "face" or "top off'" packages. This is an
advantage to buyers. Morristown, N. J.,
stock is arriving in a moderate waj r , aud
sells about as well as Delaware fruit; in some
instances it docs a little better, as there is
not the same hurry required to ship it afl ifi
the other State, and consequently it arrives
property ripened.
In Baltimore there were 20,000 boxes of
peaches at Light street yesterday, all of
which were sold at good prices. No fruit
brought less than 50 cents, and in the after
noon prime stock was wan*cd at $1.25 per
box. 'Yellow peaches, of late Crawford and
Smock varieties, sold at. from 80 cents to
$1.15 and red fruit from 50 to 80 cqnts, ship
pers and packers were free buyers.
