THE RADICAL SHAME.
MR. BKCK'S REBOLCTIOM OF INQUIRY INTO THE
SAFE BURGLAkY WHY IT WAS NOT IN
QUIRED INTO HOHE RATHER STARTLING
The Washington correspondent of the
Cincinnati Gazette, Gen. Boynton, writes
thus emphatically of the latest disclosures
in tbe safe burglary investigation : For two
weeks In succession a resolution, ordering
an investigation In regard to the conduct of
certain United States officers, in the matter
of the trial of the safe conspirators, has been
presented to the House of Representa
tives, and defeated by republican votes.
There has been wide comment upon this
fact, but the exact circumstances which
prompted tbe resolution have not boen
given in connected form. It is just to many
on the republican side to ray tbat tbey op
posed tbe investigation; first, because It
was presented from the democratic Hide,
and second, because they were Ignorant
of tbe shameful tacts in tbe case. As
tbe resolution is to be brought for
ward again on tbe first Monday alter tbe
reaBseuiolintr of congress, a statement of
the grave charges made In connection with
the matter will contribute to a correct un
derstanding of a case which must ulti
mately be looked jquarely in the face, even
by tbe blindest parti-ans. The charges are,
in a word, that from the moment an attempt
was made to indict tbe safe-burglars her,
to the close of their trial, concerted
vigorous, and well-sustained efforts were
put forth by some half-dozen officers of the
department of justice, aided by officials and
prominet citizens outside of the department,
to thwart tbe government in its attempt to
bring the guilty to punishment. Before
presenting the specifications of this
charge, it is proper to say that
the officers of the treasury depart
ment, and Attorney-General Williams, did
all in their power to prosecute the case un
der consideration with vigor. Mr. Riddle
was given full authority and ample means.
Assistant Attorney-General Hill performed
the duty assigned bim fearlessly and
effectively. How and to what ex
tent Mr. Williams' hands were tied,
the inquiry sought will disclose.
Tbe different specifications of the general
charge are as follows:
1. That Acting United States District At
torney Hsrrinzton, with tbe knowledge and
consent of United States District Attorney
Fwher, illegally procured the release and es
cape of Benton,
ONE OF THE ADMITTED BCKGLAR9,
from the jail of tbe District of Columbia; this
action being prompted by a threat of Benton
tbat unless so released he would turn stated
2. Tbat officers of tbe department of Jus
tice lor the district of Newark, New Jersey,
acting iu collusion with numerous promi
nent persons interested iu defeating tbe ends
of justice in this ease, impeded by all means
in their power tbe service of subpenes, and
tbe arrest of the guilty parties.
3. That Zituih. the 'p'erson originally em
ployed by tbe secret service force to come to
Washington and arrange tbe burglary, was
paid for bis BOrvices, or rather tbe receipts
for this payment were made, in tbe office of
Assistant United States District Attorney
King, at Newark, N. J.
4. That Deputy United States Marshal
Bailey, ot Newark, purchased the ticket for
Europe with which to tend Ziruth beyond
tbe jurisdiction of the government.
5. Tbat Unitod States Commissioner
Whitehead, of Newark, and United States
District Attorney Keasly so prearranged
matters tbat in case Nettlesbip should be
arrested in spite of the plans to prevent it
be should be brought before the former,
and be released on nominal bail; that Net
tlesbip was arrested and bail taken by
Whitehead, at the instance ot Keasly, in the
sum of fl.OOO, after which Nettlesbip Imme
6 That Chief of Police Reger;, of
Newark, acting under instructions from
prominent New Jersey republicans, actively
exerted himself to prevent tbe arrest of
Nettlesbip, and did other acts designed
to impede the course of this trial.
7 Tbat Mr. Riddle had secured evi
dence to show tbat a very prominent United
States official In W ahington, together with
some of the most prominent characters in
the late District government, bad personally
met and consulted with Nettle&Llp, and
helped him arrange tbe
OUTLINES OF THE SAFE BURGLARY.
Upon this becoming known, iu certain in
teretted quarters, the dismissal of Mr. Riddle
was immediately arranged and consum
mated. Such are the charges which
are openly made here, aud
la some particulars even more
pointedly than in tbe above specifications.
It will be readily seen that such a reproach
has never before been laid at the doors of
tbe department of justice. The whole na
tion Is interested In wiping it away with all
possible haste. The administration of jus
tice is not a party iaue. If tha corrup
tion ol local courts Is a fearful matter,
what shall be said of intiueuce
which strike at tbe integrity of the
national department of justice? With these
grave charges, thus specifically pet forth,
tbe republican who hereafter votes against
an investigation designed to ascertain their
truth should become a marked man in bis
state Tbe republican who refuses
to look into this matter, upon tbe
theory tbat tbe party may be in
jured thereby, is himself one of its
worst enemies. It is not investigation tbat
damages parties, unless failure to punish as
certained irregularities follows. Before
tbe next vote on the subject is
taken let every honest Republioin ask him
self: Which is wore for the. party lall in
vestigation and prompt punishment by Re
publicans now or an investigation and full
exposure by Democrats on tbe eve of the
next presidential election?

His letters to oorgress during tbe war, now
lately published in England,',aa well as his

armies of the Unite l States at tbe end of t he

among the fine writers of the ftge. When we
look down from this truly grieat and illus

we find a glaring contrast; nqir can we fix
our attention upon any othesr great men

casions some to conclude be t is reserved
but it is rather, I apprehend, t he e fleet of
much thinking and reflection, I for there is
great appearance to me of affability and ac
comincdation. He was at this ttlme In his

Notwithstanding bis great attention and
employment in the affairs of hia well-regu
lated government, and of his own aeiicul
tural concerns, he is in correspondence with
many of the eminent geniuses in the differ
ent countries of Europe, not sot much for
the sake of learning and fame as to procure
the knowledge of agriculture and tbe arts
useful to his country. I informed bis ex
cellency in the course ot conversation that
1 was a manufacturer from Engfand, who,
out of curiosity as well as business, had
AN EXCURSION TO AMERICA
to see the ttate of society there; to inspect
various manufactories, and particularly the
woolen, with which I was best acquainted.
The general asked ne what I thonght of
their wool. I informed bim that I had seen
v,me very good and fine at Hartford, In
Connecticut, which they told me catne irom
Georgia; but that, in general, it was very
Indifferent, yet, for the appearance of ir, I
was convinced it was capable of great
improvement; tbat, to . my surprise,
in course of traveling 250 miles, from Boston
hither, I bad not seen any flock ol more
than 20 to SO sheep, and but few ot these;
from whence I concluded there was co great
quantity grown in tbe states so as to
answer any great purposes for manufacture.
His excellency observed tbat from bi own
experience be belived it capable of great
improvement, for be bad been trying some
experiments with bis own flocks (at .Mount
Vernon), that by attending to ' breod
and pasturage he bad so far im
proved bis fleeces as to have increased them
from two to six pounds apiece, but tbat
since, from a multiplicity of other objeots to
attend to, they were, by b-ing neglected,
gone back to half their weight, being now
scarcely three pounds. I took this opportu
nity to oiler him one of my publications on
the encouragement ot wcol. which r he
seemed with pleasure to receive. Mrs.

On tbe table were two small plates of sliced

but no broiled fish, as Is tbe general custom.
Miss Custls, her granddaughter, a very
pleasing young lady, of about sixteen, sat
next to her, and her grandson, George
Washington Custis, about two years older
than herself. There was but little
appearance of form; one servant only at
tended, wbo had no livery; a 6ilver urn
for hot water was the only article ol expense
on the table, bhe appears something
older than tbe president, though I under
stand they were both born in the same
year; short in stature, rather robust, very
plain in her ures, wearing a very plain cap
with her grey hair turned closely up under
It. He has routs or levees, whichever the
people choose to call tbem, every Wednes

tory to the paraphernalia of courts.
After some general conversation we rose
Irom the table to view tbe model which a
gentleman from Virginia, who bad break
fasted with us, bad brought out for tbe in
spection of tbe president. It was a scheme
to convey vessels on navigable canals, from
one lock to another, without tbe expense of
having nood gates, by means or a lever,
weighted by a quantity, of water, pumped
into a reservoir. The president bas con

gives the following local item, which Is a re
minder tbat tbe times are changing: Yes
terday one of our churches, which has re
cently lost its pastor, was thrown open for
Christmas worship, and a talented gentle
man from an adjoining city was Becured to
conduct the services, including commun
ion. Unfortunately, this gentleman bad
been induced by some ot his friends to
partake ot Christmas egg-nog. All un
used to a beverage having spiritous liquor
for one of its iugredlenta, tbe gentleman's
bead was some what effected by bis potations.
We are not Informed tbat he bad
drank deeply. It may be that one
glass was sufficient to disturb his
mental faculties. It is believed, how

we are reluctantly compelled to speak. We
bad no reporter at tbe church nothing of
tbe kind having been expected, of course,
and ho we can speak orly from what our
reporters learned on tbe streets from
persons who had witnessed tbe af
fair. The officiating gentleman managed
to get through the services with consider
able propriety until he commenced tbe
Christian discource. By this time tbe mix

commenced to show a sad effect. IIs sub

I wake th's morn, and all my life
Is freshly mine to live;
The future with sweet promise rife.
And crowns of Joy to give.
New words to speak, new thoughts to hear.
New love to give a-d take;
Perchance new burdens I may bear.
For love's own sweetest take.
New hopes to open In the sun.
New efforts worth the will.
Or tasks with yesterday begun
More bravely to fulfill.
Fresh seeds for all the time to be

Whereby, for others and for me,
Undreamed-of fruit may grow.
In each while dslsy mld the grass
That turns my foot aside,
In each uncurling fern 1 pass

And If, when eventide shall fall
In shade across my way.
It seems that nought my thoughts recall
But life of everyday.
Yet if each step in shine or shower
He where thy footsteps trod.
Then bleed be every happy hour
That leads me nearer iod.
AN OHIO MÖRDER.
A MYSTERIOUS DISAPPEARANCE IN ' FRANK
LIN COUNTY A YOUNG MAN KILLS HIS
FATHER POSSIBLE CREMATION.
The Cincinnati Enquirer contain a the fol
lowing special in regard lo the murder
in Franklin county, Ohio, already briefly
reported by telegraph: Franklin county
has turned up a murder and cremation case,
which may possibly rival the Cincinnati
furnace horror. Jacob Nies wander, 45
years old, lived in a cabin two and
a half miles north of New Albany,
and 15 milts from Columbus.
He disappeared Irom borne about the 8th
of Deceml.er, and be has only been seen in
tho neighborhood once since tbat date,
name'y, on Saturday last, when a neighbor
saw him going toward borne with a satchel
in bis band. During the present week
Nieswander's family have deserted the
house, and suspicion be inst aroused, inves
tigation has been made on the
premises. Some bones were found in
a large heap of ashes in a fire-place,
and a corn cutter with blcod on it
was also disoovered; but there were also
feathtrson the corn-cutter, which tend to
confirm the fctory of Nieswander's family,
tbat the blood came from killing chickens.
Only small pieces of bones were recovered
from tbe ashes, and it is difficult to tell
whether they are human bones or not.
James and Albert Nieswander, aged 14 and
18, and Hons ot the missing man, have been
arrested one of tbem in Columbus and
the other in Newark. The mother,
who is at a house in the neighbor
hood of the Nieswander cabin, will
probably be arrested to-morrow. Sus
picion against the family Is so strong tbat
nothing but the turning up of Neiswander
can relieve them from very ericas embar
rassment. There have undoubtedly been
contentions in the family, and James, one of
the boys now in prison, admits that he
wounded bis father
WTIH A BUTCHER KNIFE
about a month aero. Arr interview with the
attending physicUn shows, however, that
the oid man Kcovf red from tbat wound.
The prisoners declare they havo not seen
their father iuc the S:h inst.
The 0:i:o Stnte Journal of t ho 29th Inst.
gives th3 facts in regard to the tragedy as
elicited by an examination on the charge of
gtabbinx with intent to kill: Notice was
mado ytsterdap morning of the faot tbat
Marshal Samuel Cashner, ot New Albany,
armed with a warrant from Mayor James K.
Miller, had removed the boy James Neis
wander to that village for examination on
a cbargo of stabbing his father with
intent to kill, on the 17tb of November
last. The examination took place vesterday.
Dr. S. W. Itanny testified that on the
evening of the 17th of November he was
called by James NeiswaDder, who said his
father 'had fallen on a wood pile and
snagged himself. The doctor found a wound
about an inch and a half below the nipple,
evidently made by a harp instrument; but
the kniie bad struck agsiust a rib, and a
fatal result was thus prevented. Mr.
and Mrs. Neiswander both told tbe
doctor that Jaiueö bad stabbed his father.
Lemuel Bare, living a mile and a half
from Neiswandcr's, testified tbat three days
after November 17, James was at bia house
and said be bad stabbed his father, and the
next time would fetab deeper. Sallie Bare,
living a mile from Neiswander, testi
fied tbat James told her he bad
stabbed his father, and the next time
there was trouble ho would kill bim. Mrs.
Neiswander (tbe missing man's wife) was
placed on the stand. She said that on tbe
morning of tbe 17;hof November she was
talking to her husband, advising him not to
go to a certain place to work, aud scolding
bim. James jumped up and
STRUCK HER THREE TIMES
on the head with his hand. The eld man
came to her defense, and without laying his
bands on James, told bim he ought not to
strike his mother; that she had her rights
there, etc. James then relzed a case knife
which was lying on a table near by, and
looked at it; then laid it down and picked
np a butcher knife, with wbich be stabbed
his father, saying, "I will kill you." The
blade went through a coat, vest and two
shirts, and inflicted tbe wound to -which
Dr. llanney atterward gave attention. Mrs.
Neiswander also testified tbat on one occa
sion previous to the 17th, James r,ad shot at
his father, and that on several occasions he
bad threatened to kill him. Frederick
Cole testified .to James' acknowledg
ment that he bad stabbed his father.
B. M. Albery conducted the case for tbe
state, and L. W. Babbitt defended. Tbe ac
cused was bound over to court in $300 and
was brought to Jail last evening by Marshal
Casbner and A. T. Ulry. There have been
no new developments as to the supposed
murder and burning. Neiswander has
not tnrned up in person, and it
will . be extremely difficult to silt him
out of tbe ashes' in the Neiswander
fire-p'ace. Our reporter had an interview
yesterday with Mr. Cahner. who was tha
first person to examine th H r.i una .ft
the desertion ot the oah'-n. Hnif itnn
very small pieces of U )tin U'tru f, iri.l
there were streaks through the abee that
resembled lime. The supposition that the
bones were those of a human being seems
to have been suggested by the absence of
Neiswander, as much as by thfir appear-
