Col. Harrison first joined me in command
of a brigade of Ward's division ill Lookout

what is called the campaign of Atlan

to (his young ofliccr by the sti|H'
rior excellence of his brigade in discipline and
insi ruction, the result of his labor, skill and
devotion. With more foresight than 1 have
witnessed in any offices of his experience, he
seemed to act upon tin* principle that
depended upon the thorough preparation in
discipline and esprit of his command for con
flict more than on any iuflucncc that could
lie exerted ia the lield itself, and when the col
lision came his command vindicated his wis

The rulings of law in theChieago
case, by Judge Gary, that sent Spies and his
eomrndesto the gallows, wcreturned by all
other Chicago judge. Kirk Haws, against the
agents, attorneys and chief officials of one of
the weathiest corporations in that country.
The offense iu this case was attempted jufv
bribing, and the main offender Sumner C.
Welch, claim agent ot the Chicago City
railway, is sentenced to a term be
hind prison bars, while C. H.
Holmes, president of the company, ami
C. M. Hardy, the company's attorney, are
recommended to la* dealt, with by the grand
jsry. Judge Haws holds that the conspira
cy rulings in the unarchist case applies as
well to any otherconspirators. Iu rendering
his decision he sent Welch to jail for six
months, and held that it. was not necessary
that Holmes or Hardyshould have done any
positive or affirmative act, or l»e present
when it was done, if they in any way aid or
altctted, and that if they did so aid or alst
they wer» as
guilI as the
act mil criminal. Tin*
question as to whether Homes or Hardy
actually did abet ho left to the grand jury,
p'commending that it. imrestipate theireases.
The Chicago (*!ty ruilway is perhaps the
largest corporation of tho kind iu the coun
try. President !Ionics is a very prominent,
wealthy citizen, and Attorney Hardy is a
leading mcmt»er of the har. The Wiliery
was in an insignificant little damage suit
against the company, Weleli approaching
one of the jurors named Rosenthal during a
court reccss, and endeavoring to retain by
money his scrviee in the interest of the
company. Uosenthal imligua nt ly refused,
voted for the highest verdict against the cor
poration, and afterwards exposed the busi
ness to the attorneys for the plaintiff. The
matter raised a storm of public opinion. It
was shown that this course had Iteen pur
sued for years in other litigation. Thejudgo
in recommending Hardy nnd Holmes to tho
grand jury said enough had been shown to
establish a reasonable ground for lielief that
they had general knowledge of Welch's
crimes uml indirectly encouraged him, wink
ing at his infamy. The sentence of Welch is
only for his contempt of court, aud ho with
Hardy aud Holmes are liable, il their guilt
is formally established before a jury tu the
regular way, to a long term of hard labor in
tho penitentiary.
