Major Grubb in his testimony last eight J
jefore the Invest i^tiog Committee took
:ccasicn to ssy Mr Taney "lied" to him.
because he promised not to publish the
itatement of Pearl Wood's affidavit. j
Mter that promise was made to the Major,
i'hief of Police Smith ca'Ied at th» Heg- I j.
ster office and wanted to know what waa
joing on or words to that cfleet? We ex-!
j'aiced to him about the affidavit. He
itated it waa all a lie and asked that his
.ersion of the matter be published. Tcis :
<?at«ment ct the Chief entirely changed ;
the titration and made it necessary to ;
publish »hat we knew of the affidavit. |
Now we submit, would it have been justice V*r
to our r* adew, or fair to the Mavor, who
was hunting Evidence for the proeecution
of the Chief, to have published the Chief's j#'
statement alou«? Would it no have been a v
an incomplete atii an unsatisfactory piece Bii
of news to have published cue version and the
not the other? Kspecially as the Chief s P°
version was a refutation of the affidavit.
True, we mi^ht have rent at the hour of mid- the
uk'ht to Mayor Grubb's residence and tim
aeked his august Honor's permissifn to
cancel th» obligation we had imposed upon me

time «as precious, the hour late, and we 8e^
did not dr^aui of the gentle appellation , ^
which the Mayor had in store for us. Oth (0
er^ise we might have so done, and if he ab.'
bad refused Lis cousent we would bave *n

We are »:l!ing to believe that our highly
moral Major at home, and our undignified

that every man and «ooi&n in Wheeling îtç

worthy of a second patronage, as there was ma

tub story. I „
"Sometime last July, said the witness,
1 ask Captain Smith to pull three places '
rhere I believed gambling was goinj; on He fc
lid, 'All light;' he said he would pull ibe e
ouees at 11 o'clock, and wanted meto ?o L
long. 1 said I would, and ha said he J*
rould (.all for me at 10 o clock. I waited j
ntil 10:10, but the Captain did not come;
supposed potnetbing was wrong, as the 14
laces were dark. At 10:1 j the Captain *'
ame to ine and said his m»-n had reported "
he places empty and dark, and it was r.o _
se to go. Ile said he would go and pull c
, house of prostitution if 1 would say so.
told him be could do so, if he wanted to ji
iut that 1 would net go. The next day I fj
earned that, at 10:15 the night before, the 1
'aptain had been seen coming out of one
if the gambling houses. I won't tell the .
lame of the house—1 dou't see tir. 1 be- 1
ieve it will serve my etds better, to break J
ip gambling, not to tell the name Cap
ain Smith can tell. I won't gwe my rta- !
ions tor declining to tell. One of the 1
louses has been pul'ed and the other two
lave not. 1 made no eflort to have them
Sec. 7 of the otdinance in relation to

ily to a question as to whether he expect
>d the Sergeant to proceed to blindly swear
iut warrants, without personal knowledge
>f the facts, the witnesB said he thought he
;ould find out the facts.
A little further on this scene occurred :
Q —Were thero any grounds of reason
ible complaint made to >ou in reference
;o Chief Porter Smith's teglect of duty in
regard to gambling?
A.—There most assuredly was
(J.—Who made the complaints'.'
A.—The people of Whtelirg.
Q.—Cau you tell me who they wer*''
A.—I am just about as able to tell you
who didn't complain. It was the town •
Q —Can you tell who made com plait: I s
uf Porter Smith's negligence?
A.—I don't remember n .single person
Q —Do you remember of a sins;!« per
son sajing that Porter Smith did not do
his duty 7
A.—No; but I would swear people did.
Yes, I remember one—Mr. Laughlin.
Q —What complaint did he make''
A.—Hu said the Chief did not stop gain
Q —Did he mention auy particular
house ?
A.—He mentioned no name.
Q —Theu he made a general complaint?
A.—Uli, some people complained of one
house and some of another.
Q—Did you ever infurrn Chief Smith
ho-v he could obtain evidence '
A.—I don't remember.
Continuing, the witu- fs said:
1 have talked to Smith about gambling,
and tried to get him to do it; 1 don't re
member asking Smith to arree.t without a
warrant; I don't think he could do ii; I
havo no recollection of asking him, in
front of my store, to pull a gambling
bouse without a •«.arrant ; I know he could
not do it; I told him to pull a particular
house; I did not oiler to muke an oath
when I knew gambling was goiug on, 1
had been told there was gambling there;
Mr Smith is paid to lind out »beut the
gambling; the city pijs ÏJU.U'O a voir to
prevent it; I dou't alftajo follow out my
duty in the ordinances; ther- are
ordinances which it wouldn't do to
follow; 1 reported Mr Smith's not
doing it to Council; I don't remember of
reporting it to oth- ra before reporting it to
Council; I might, the papers *\re lull ot
it; some of it they got trom niR and tome
they didn't; 1 made no secret cl'it; I tried
to get public opinion with me,and succeed
ed; the houses stopped, and etar!eJ again;
I have made no effort to stopt it siDce
Council set'led me; I don't propoee to re
main settled; get the report ol the Commit
tee on Flections and se» whbl they did
with me; 1 asked for an investigation of
the police force; Council ordered it; then
it called a meeting and slopped it and tited
it into me; I asked the Chief to pull three
hous<s iu July; 1 never asked for an allida
\ita* toganibling 1 remember of two con
versations with Mr. Smith about gambling
at the Fair; I talked wi;h him fo long be

pleuty of time to make up his mind.

The Br idgeport people had eu .nething to
talk about yesterday besides the minors'
strike and the possibility of a new post
master in lîfSS. In the morning, when
Willie Gitiin went to open the door of his
father's store, he found that some one had
beei. there earlier, and had not only opened
the store but the sale also. The door had
been opened by taking a cLisel aud goug
ing the wood away from around the lock
on the iront J cor and then pushing the
block holding the lock into the room, thns
leaving the doors entirely free to move.
got in they apparently turned their atten
tion to drilling a hole about three-eighths of
hu inch in diameter, immediately ncder
the knob of ihe safe door. Through this
bole the powder wasinsfried, and appar
ently in no small quantities either, a« the
entire Iront sheet of the door, including
lock and all, were blown off. The cafe is
only lire proof and had no burglar door to
hinder the crooksmen, who used an iron
bar, weighing about seventy-live pounds to
work up the drawers containing the valua
bles. In the safe there were nearly a hun
dred dollars in cash and a Smith A Wes
son revolver, both ot which were taken.
The books and papers
as was the case with other articles in the
«'ore. This is the fourth robbery this
week. The (list time, Will Fowler's rooms
were tried, hut unsuccessfully; next, with
better fortune, the thieves gained nil en
