coming straight up to (Jen. Hunton,
chairman of the sub-commit tet, leside
whom Dlaine sat engaged, as he always

paper, Knott said huskily : "I understand
that Mr. Blaine has been attempting to
prove roe a liar." Knott was angry,
and there was a quarrelsome spirit In his
eve. Blaine never blanched a moment.
He must have known, what anybody in
tbe room could see, that Knott was ach
ing to have him say something offensive
which would justify him in whackiu
him orer the head. Knott admitted no
such purpose, but there were a dozen
men in the room who hoped he would.

into a minute statement of the conduct
of the pending Investigation and his
handiwork in It. He disavowed any anl
ntus against Blaine, but it was generally
admitted that he addressed the ex-speaker
too brutally in several instances, though
Blaine's manner and insinuations were
enough to aggravate a man into the loss
of reason, as well as moderation. The
altercation was incessant, sharp and oin

Knott had never heard such a w Lb.
and it he had he shouldn't have confessed

but Blaine wai not after anwsers in
Knott's favor. What he was seeking for

Knott went on to explain the reception
of the telegram, Blaine accompanying
the narrative with onnotativc expres

This was the most critical episode of the

the utmost limits ol endurance. "Do

toward Blaine, "that I deliberately sup

It was quite as well that Blaine did not

he never heard ot the dispatch till Blaine
alluded to it. Mr. Hunton said he knew

the examination in order that he might
make a statement allowing that the sub
co.nmittee wan appointed under the
Ltittrell resolution long before any In
vestigation of Blnlne w as heard of. He
said the entry of the appointment of tbe
subcommittee was not made upon the
books ol the committee, by an omission
of the clerk.
Statements were made by various mem
bers showing that the subcommittee was
appointed before the passage of the Tar
box resolution, but that through the
careless method of doing business it had
not been announced, and it had done
nothing before that time.
Blaine made a speecn, saying mat tuc

he cried, "to tell me why, if that Ltittrell
resolution was so important, nothing was
done under it lor time months."
Here Blaine raised his voice and de
manded of Mr. Iiunton whether he
would now inform him, as he had prom
ised fo do in the house, whether he knew
of tlie reception ol that cable dispatch
from Josiah Caldwell by Knott.
Knott replied that tsie sub-committee
was far too busy to do anything about
the matters referred to it under the Lut
trell resolution during those three
Mr. Knott was then closely cross-ex
amined by Blaine on the subject of the

Blaine, "whether you intend to produce

Mr. Knott I received that telegram on
Thursday morning. 1 will state it as

somewhat protracted. I came buck to
my room and my wife called my atten
tion to the telegram. 1 took it up and
read it and Immediately started to the
cspitol. That telegram excite 1 my sus
picions, for this reason: A proposition
bad been made some time before by some
member of tlie judiciary committee, I
don't know by whom, for 1 was not pres
ent, that a telegraphic dispatch should be
sent to Caldwell to know it he would re
turn to this country and testify. That
proposition was resisted, as I was inform
ed, by Bluiiie and
BY BLAINE'S FRIEN'PS.
Blaine On the ground that it was ut
terly and preposterously absurd, because
you could not get Win to come.
Knott On the ground that he could
not be got
Blaine Yes, and that it he wouid not
it w ould then be said that he would not
come because his testimony would be
unfavorable to me. It would be said
"Oh, yes, he cannot come ; he is con
veniently absent in r.urope.
Knott I do not desire to be interrupt
ed any more in my statement. Some
davs afterward the question was raised
in the judiciary committee as to whether
a teleirraDhic dispatch should be sent
askintr Caldwell if he would come and
testify, in that instance also Blaine's
friends resisted the motion.
Blaine On the same ground! ?
Knott It nevertheless prevailed
The committee on judicial y instructed
me to send such a telegraphic dispatch to
Mr. caidweii. i did not Know wnere
Caldwell was to be found. 1 went to
tlie representative from Boston (Warren)
thinking that he would know, and asked
him where Caldwell might be found
He told me he did not know. 1 asked
him to imiuire, telling him I had been
instructed by the committee to
SEND A DISI'ATCH TO CALDWELL.
He said he would write to a gentleman
in Boston and ascertain, in the mean
time 1 went to Judge Hunton, and told
him I had a great variety ot things on
hand, and asked him to take hold of that
matter, and tind out where L aid well was,
and to telegraph in mv name. arren.
some days afterward, came to me, and
told me that he had received a letter lrorn
his friend in Boston informing him that
Caldwell was somewhere in Italy. When,
thereafter 1 received a dispatch from
Caldwell, without having dispatched to
htm, it occurred to me that
it was scsriciois.
Blaine Would not the publication of
it have exuoied it.
Knott l beg tlie gentleman not to inter
rupt ine. Furthermore, there was simply
at the top of the dispatch the word "Lon
don," no month, no day, no plaoc, no
street, no house. I knew nothing about
cable dispatches; had never sent one in
mv file, and never even seen one before
That 1 have since been Informed that It

to put the address in the dispatch itself.

As soon as I could, after reading that dis
patch, I came to the capitol aud read it
to Judge Lvndc and, 1 think, to Judge
Lord, .Mr. Jenks. and Mr. McMalion
I think it wai to these four gentlemen
that I read it. 1 know that these four
gentlemen were present at the meeting.
and my impression is that they were
there when l read the dispatch. 1 am
confident that Judge Lynde was there on
i nursday, un r riday there was a meet

jects were under consideration. Tin

Blaine You did not think of mention

truth Is, Mr. Blaine, I had a great many

I didn't regard the telegraphic dispatch
as a matter or evidence in any sense af

Caldwell, saying that Blaine was guilty,
and that he got tlie bonds from him, it
would have been Injustice to Blaine to
have given It to the public.

that before the Tarbox resolution was

Lynde said, "1 will state that the day
when that telegram was read by Knott. I

w hen he came to the house, said to me,
'I have received a telegram this morning
which 1 want to show you.' lie took
the telegram out of his pocket and
showed it to;me, and I read it. Whether
It was iu this room or iu the room ot the

when 1 read the telegram, 'This is not
