"It is a drama thai not only takes the masses, but
Is full of interest to tho-c who are habituated to
orcry pbae of the drama. There is nothing more
thrilling and exciting than the Are scene and the
wonderful gambling scene in this masterpiece of

both llohcmian and Jeleclive, is admirably
adapted to Mr. Xobles aSl in his own play, The
Phoenix,' he possesses a faculty that but tew actors

HE MAKES A FULL CONFESSION.
The Sewer Certificates Stolen by Hinueir Alone &nd
Placed Among Sereral Brokers, Whom H
XeatloM by Xame Careless rToy
of Keeping Papers.
Last Saturday morning J. G. Farnham,
who was brought here from Sing Sing, N. Y.,by
Detective McElfresh on suspicion of having ab
stracted the canceled sower certificates from the
board of audit rooms and put them upon the mar
ket, was taken to the District Commissioners,
office. Commissioner Dent, District-Attorney A. G.
Kiddle, Mr. Eitchie, of Akron, Ohio, the victim In
the transaction; his counsel, Hon. Jere 3L Wilson,
and a stenographer only were present.
T ABNHAJt'S STATEJIENT.
The following is a verbatam report of the state
ment that was made by Farnham, Mr. Riddle hav
ing asked him to state all that he knew In refer
ence to the disposition of the so-called sewer
bonds, what he had to do with It himself, and
whether any other person had any connection
Mr. Farnham replied : I confess that I took them
myself from the board of audit.
Mr. Riddle You may state where they were
kept, and the facilities for getting them.
Mr. Farnham They were kept under the coun
ter in the room of the secretary of tho board of
audit. There Is a counter running around the
room, and right under the counter at my feet,
where I stood, they were bundled up In bundles.
At the time that I topk them out I had no idea that
they had any value. I just pulled out a package
and took out a part of a bundle; took them In my
hand, and at that time I only 'intended to keep
them as a sort of curiosity. I did not think that
they were worth a cent in the world. As I was at
that time drinking very 'heavily and spending a
great deal of money, foolishly, of course, and of
course a man under such circumstance wants
money, I conceived the idea oferasing thatcancel
atlon and disposing of the bonds to raise money to
get whisky, which I did.
Mr. Kiddle What was the cancelation?
Mr. Farnham The cancelation was simply a
stamp, and in a great many cases it was so feint
that you could hardly see it, and it was the easiest
matter in the world to erase it. With a piece of
soap you were able to do it. If I had thought at
that time if I had been so disposed I could have
taken out lOO.OOOof them and disposed of them in the
same way, and there was nothiug to preventallthe
rest of the clerks from doing the same thing. They
were perfectly open, just as if they were at the feet
of this gentlemen (poiuting to Commissioner Dent's
feet). If I had thought at the time that I took
them of making any use of them if I had had any
ideaofralsingabig lump of money on them of
course I would have taken more.
Mr. Riddle How many did you take with you?
Mr. Farnham I don't remember; I think in the
neighborhood of 511,000. Mr. McElfresh has only
refreshed my memory, and Mr. Donoyan has dis
covered the loss of$ll,000 of them.
Mr. Riddle Have you any knowledge that any
other person took any?
Mr. Farnham I have not.
Mr. Riddle You may state how long you kept
them, what disposition was made of them, and to
Mr. Farnham I was drinking so heavily then
that I cannot say. My mind was very cloudy, and
my memory is cloudy about the matter, but I
think I took them in February or March, 1S76, and
I do not think I sold any until about the time of
the Centennial, about May.
Mr.Riddle In 1S76?
Mr. Farnham Yes; I wanted to get money to go
to the Centennial.
Mr. Riddle To whom did you make the first
Mr. Farnham General Whittaker.
Mr. Riddle How many d id you sell him ?
Mr. Farnham I am not positive, but I think I
sold him two 8500 bonds.
Mr. Riddle How much?
Mr. Farnham I think I got thirty-five cents;
that is, thirty-five cents on the dollar; making
Mr. Riddle Did you make any statement to him
in regard to where you got them?
Mr. Farnham Xo, sir; he was innocent about it.
Mr. Riddle Did any one know of your taking
Mr. Farnham No, sir; I kept the secret to my
self. Mr. Riddle Go on and state the sale of the
Mr. Farnham I think that it was to Mr. Henry
S.Davis, who had an office at the Metropolitan
Bank. I dqn't remember, but it strikes me that
the first sale to him was $1,500. I made two salos
to him, I think, afterward; I sold him S3.000 ; but
I won't be sure about that, as my memory is a
little bad, I think.
Mr.Riddle At what price?
Mr. Farnham I think I only got thirty-fivo
cents from him.
Mr. Riddle At what time were these sales
Mr. Farnham I gues3 you've got me on that. I
think it was after I had been to the Centennial.
I think it was the same time, perhaps In July;
still, I could not be positive about it. It might
have been August, or it might have been Sep
tember. Mr. Riddle That makes $1,500 that you sold.
When were tho rest sold, aud to whom?
Mr. Farnham Whether I sold a second batch to
General Whittaker or not I really don't know, but
it strikes me that I did; but how many I haven't
the slightest idea in the world.
Mr. Riddle Have you any impression as to tho
Mr. Farnham About thirty-five cents. Then I
afterward gave some (I don't remember how
many) to Mr. G. W. Lanier, who was, I believe, at
that time employed down here on Four-and-a-half
street, where General Whittaker's Office i3
now. He ran a sort of branch office for Mr. Peter
Campbell. I gave them to Mr. Lamer, who took
them to Mr. Campbell.
Mr. Riddle To sell for you ?
Mr. Farnham Yes, sir.
DID Jin. CAMTSELL KNOW IT?
Mr.Riddle Do you know whether Mr. Campbell
knew the character of them ?
Mr. Farnham I won't say for certain that he
knew they were crooked, but it is my impression
that he knew what he wan buying.
Mr. Riddle You may state in that connection
what knowledge you had to lead you to believe
that he had knowledge of the facts?
Mr. Farnham Mr. Lamer says, Why don't you
go to Mr. Campbell yourself?" I says, "Gid, I
don't know refer Campbell; I don't know what
sort of a fellow he is ; I don't know whether he will
have anything crooked or not; " and he say, " Oh,
hell ! he will buy anything." Whether he told Mr.
Campbell I don't know.
Mr.Riddle Do you know how many Campbell
Mr. Farnham I don't know, but I sold the bal
ance to him.
Mr. Riddle So that your statement covers the I
dbiwsition of all of them?
.ur.ranuiaai xo.iir. noia on; waita minute. Tho Rev. Dr. Denison then read an original ad
Iwent to Mr. J. M. Starr once with some, but I dress, entitled "The Rum'sllcr'fi Dream," which
don't believe he took any. All that I sold was to iV.ls well received, and Miss Stella Seymour sang
Mr. Whittaker and Mr. Davh., and save some to . Dh.mnrfim . onnroriotiiroi.' ts. ,ntt..
Lamer to give to Peter Campbell
Mr. Riddle Aud you disposed of all?
Mr. rornham Yes, sir. At the time I was sorry
that I had not taken more. I was drinking whisky
and wanted money, and was making a beast of
Mr. Riddle Did anybody know that you had
them except these men to w horn you sold them ?
Mr. Famham Xo, sir ; nobody but my wife, and
she-did not know what they were. My wife did
not know anything about my buinc3s. I am very
glad of It. I tried to keep everything irom her.
Mr. Riddle Have yon any knowledge that any
other person took any of them ?
Mr. Farnham Lhavc not. 1 will answer for mv-
selfbut asto others, I don't know.atiything about
Mr. Riddle Is there any other fact or thing in
connection with thU matter that you can now re
member that will throw any light upon it?
Mr. Faruham Well,, no. I do not know that I
can say anything more. It seems to me as if I had
aid all that there is possible to tell. It is a frank
and hones: statement. I acknowledge to havo
taken them mj self, aud to have canceled and sold
Mr. Riddle They were taken in February or
Mr. Farnham Ye, sir; 1S76. T think it might
have been eariier, but not later.
Mr. Riddle Up until how recently did you re
main in thu District?
Mr. Famham A year ago last August I left
Mr. Riddle Andou were living here continu
ously up to lat August a year ago ?
Mr. Farnham Yes, f-ir. I may as well state my
reason for leaving. It was not because I was
afraid of anythiug. because I made no secret of
my residence; I have written to Mr. Allen, in the
Surveyor's. Office, I have written to Mr. Frank
Stillson, right in this office, and I have written to
half a dozen others. My residence was no secret.
It has beeu known for years that I lived at Sing
Sing. The Supreme Masonic Lodge were ac
quainted with my residence aud made no secret
Mr. Famham here explained that he left the
DIs-triet because he wauted to manufacture a few
articles which he had invented; had finally,
through the influence) of his brother-in-law, se
cured a place as guard at Sing Simr, but was sub
sequently discharged, since which time he had
lived on the charity of friends. Ho said he had
come voluntarily to Washington, adding, " I would
rather Jive in jail in Washington than to Uve in
Sinjr Sing," and that tho statement given above
was entirely voluntary. Mr. Jere Wilson here took
up the examination.
Mr. Jere Wilson I would like to know whether
these certificates were packed in boxes or tied up
In bundles? .
Mr. Farnham They were just tied up In a bun
dlelied up in an ordinary bundle and thrown on
the floor. I just took my fingers and took out so
many and pulled them xrat for curiosity; I did not
know that they were worth a cent. If there are
any more missing I do not know anything about
them. Eleven thousand dollars is about the
amount I took. It seems tome that it was 811,000
or something like that.
"Mr. Wilson How many clerks were there be
hind that counter, under which they were placed ?
Mr. Farnham Four, Mr. Mills, myself, Mr. Ford,
and Mr. Selkey.
Mr. Wilson Were there people frequently going
in and out of there behind the counter?
Mr. Farnham Not frequently. Only some fa
vorite friends, c., were allowed behind the coun
ter. There was no difficulty in carrying away a
million of them.
Mr. Wilson In reference to the cancelation.
Was there any difficulty in removing the cancela
tion? Mr. Farnham Not at all.
Mr Wilson What was the manner in which
these bonds or certificates had been canceled?
Mr. Farnham If ypu had some of those date
stamps I could show you. We would slip the bond
right under and stampthem that way. Sometimes
the ink would get faded and I could hardly see
that they were stamped at all.
Mr. Wilson Did you have any trouble in remov
ing tho cancelation?
Mr. Farnham Very little.
Mr. Wilson Do you remember what tho num
bers of the certificates were ?
Mr. Farnham I have not the remotest idea in
Mr. Wilson All that you know about it is in ref
erence to the amount?
Mr. Famham Yes, sir; and the personsto whom
they were passed.
Mr. Wilson You had no record of the numbers?
Mr. Farnham Xo, sir.
Mr. Wilson Did you indorse your namo on the
Mr. Farnham No, sir; I cut off the coupons and
pasted them on the face of the bonds. Tho reason
why I did that was that I had some long envel
opes quite as long as yon can get, I guess and I
cut off the coupons in order to get the bonds in
without folding them up.
Mr. Wilson That was done for the purpose of
adjusting them to the size of the envelope ?
Mr. Famham Ye3, sir; simply for convenience.
At this point the interview closed, and Mr. Farn
ham was returned to Police Hcadqua rters.
BEYOND BEACH OF THE LAW.
La ter Mr. Riddle had an interview with United
States District Attorney Corkhillin regard to the
matter, and it was found that Farnham was be
yond the reach of tho law ; that five years at least
had passed since the crime was committed, and
that the statute of limitations would be a bar
against prosecution, should it be attempted. While
the abstraction of the securities occurred long be
fore the present Commissioners went into office,
and, consequently, they were not responsible for
it, still they havo made earnest and, as it proves,
successful efforts to trace the bonds and find tho
guilty party who stole and then disposed of them
afterward, now the loss will be divided up is not
yet known. For all that have been redeemed, of
course, the District becomes a l03er to that amount;
while those still out and held by private parties
will prove worthless paper and a dead loss.
The WnhInctoz Froobol Society.
At the regular monthly meeting of the
Washington Froebel Society, held Friday evening
at the home of Mr. R. W. Fenwlck, 1303 X street
northwest, the secretary reported that the recent
entertainment in Talmage Hall netted the society
S10L An entertainment by Mrs. Pollock also net

kindergarten in this city. After tho business was

and a charming baritone solo by Mr. Whipple.
Quite a largo number were present, and fifteen

them Mrs. Chief Justice Waite and Mrs. Spofford,

Captain Walker Reinnudect.
Justice James has finally delivered his
decision in'the habeas corpus case of Captain John
P. Walker, Third United States Cavalry. The re-
later was adjudged insane by a board of army
surgeons, and committed to the Inane asylum in
this District by order of the Secretary of War, on
January 17, 1879. In the ensuing month of October
his counsel, Judge Warden, obtained a writ of
habeas corpus from Justice James, and from that
time to the present the case has been pending.
The case was concluded long ago, and has for
some time since been ripe for the decision, which
was given last Saturday. His Honor decided to
dismiss the writ and remand the petitioner to the
custody of Dr. Godding. The execution of the
order was suspended for a fortnight, in order to
give Judge Warden, counsel for the relater, an op
portunity to decide whether or not he would
appeal the case to the court in banc.

yesterday afternoon In Trades-Union Hall, Mr. P.
J. Donoughue, of the District bar, presiding and
Mr. Daly acting as secretary. The final arrange
ments for the event, which, from reports made by
Messrs. Donoughue, Broderick, Lackey, Shannon,
Walsh, McCartney, and others regarding the sale
of tickets, promises to be unusually successful,
were completed by the election of Messrs. Thomas
Broderick and James Ragan as chairman and
toast-master respectively, with Mr.P. J. Donoughue
as alternate, incase the latter gentleman would be
unable to serve. To fill a vacancy in the list of
gentlemen to respond to the various toasts, Colonel
P. J. Downing, of the Post-Office Department,
was selected to respond to " Our patriotic dead.'

The meeting of the Biological Society
was Tridav evenin? well attended, thirtv-sixmeni-
bera being present, aud Professor Gill, of tlsc '
Smithsonian Institution, In the chair. Animated
discussions resulted from the reading of papers on
"Suctorial organ of prehension amoug animals"
and "Septuary periodicity in living organisms."
In the course of the discussion on the latter paper
it was shown that the period of incubation, not
only in animals, but diseases were multiples of
seven, and tho importance of this fact in medical
science, especially in shaping quarantine regula
tions, was pointed out. The Influence oflhe moon
in the development of periodicity was aLso dis
cussed, during which a number of interesting facts
were quoted to sustain this story.
A Nine to be Fat In tho Field.
The National Base-Ball Club has de
cided to place a nine in the field this coming sea
son, and one, too, their friends and patrons will not
be ashamed of. There has been already organ ized
five clubs independent of tha League Albany, New
York, Brooklyn, Philadelphia, and this city. There
Is an abundance of good material that could easily
be collected into first-class nines, and doubtless it
will be done by the time playing season gets
round. A direct circuit between here and Boston
would make the game profitable to the club', and
they might have all the contents they nUlied with
out begging games from League clubC Probably
the farther the latter keep from this city this sum
mer the better they will be appreciated.
A Temperance Advocate from C'auada.
A temperance rally under the auspices
of the Grand Division of 'the Sons of Temperance
was held In Lincoln Hall yesterday afternoon, at
which an eloquent address was made by Hon. Ed
ward Carswell, a celebrated Canadian cold water
advocate. He painted a very pretty temperance
picture, reminding many in the audience of the !
style of John B.Gough. A choice stock of care
fully selected anecdotes, and the lessons drawn
from them, kept the audience in" thorough sym
pathy with the speaker, and he was ficqueutly'in
terrupted'with the wildest applame.
