[The Commercial of Yesterday.]
Mr. Edmund Griffith, a well-known eltl
sen, was one of those wko became ball for
Dr. W. D. Nolen, recently Collector of Cus
toms, when be was at rested some weeks'
ago upon the charge of embezzling U. S.
funds. Mr. Griffith, in conversation with
several persons, has since stated some in
teresting facts in relation to the matter.
He expresseahls belief that Dr. Nolen will
not be tried on the charge, or, If he be triad,
nothing will come of It. The reason for
this belief, he states. Is that he (Griffith)
has knowledge that Doctor Nolen was ad
vised or directed to withhold the money,
(over 15,600 in gold, received for custom
duties on a wrecked ship; in the fall of
) by parties then higher to petition
and influence than himself, one of them
being Mr. George P. Fisher, end that Nolen
now has Fishers letter or letters to that
effect, which, if the case came to trial he
would be obliged to produce as hie own de
1872,
Mr. Griffith, In stating these facts, gave
the Impression thst the money was retained
and used for political purpotet, on behalf of
Mr. Fisher sod his friends, and It is also re
ported that at the time of his removal from
office, Dr. Nolen remarked thst ha did not
keep the monw himself, but sent it "down
the State." It will be remembered thst In
the campaign of 1872, whan Mr. Lolland,
Judge Fisher's protege and supporter, was
the candidate for Congress, Fisher came to
Delaware and took an active part in the
cauvaes, especially, as It was understood,
helping to provide "the sinews of war." It
is true that the Government money did not
come into
time after the election, but It Is suggested
that It was known before the election—the
wreck having occurred in October—that it
was coming, and that It might readily have
been used, when received, to pay bills con
tracted, replace advances that had been
made, or meet election promisee.
Mr. Lofland states that he, himself, ad
vised Dr. Nolen not to pay over the money
to the Government, when he received It, as
there waa a claim of the wreckers lor part
of it, for salvage, pending, and he thought
the Doctor should wait until the claim was
decided.
It can, of course, he readily seen that If
the statements by Dr. Griffith are correct,
Mr. Fisher may well desire to be placed In
charge of the case against Dr. Nolen, and
that, the latter may very reasonably hold on
wl»h a careful clutch to Fisher's extraordi
nary letters.
