These charges are fourteen in number, and contaiu entirely new evidence implicating Comptroller Knox. At a time previous to the hearing before the house chmmittee on banking and commerce, we had been too much hurried owing to the death of Ives, and a change in our counsel to put these latter charges in proper form, so we delayed their presentation until dow, in order to make them complete in every de tail, both as regards allegation and the evidence supporting them. 1 am not at liberty to state what these charges are be cause Knox is to appear before the house committee on Tuesday next when .he charges will be formally presented. They are very damaging to Knox and abundantly ly supported by uncontestable proofs. The first of the charges refers to another prominent bank in Boston, with which also the comptroller was identified. A prominent shareholder of the latter bank, who owned $20,000 worth of stock in the Pacific bank, h is ile c.ea that if the house committee on bank ing and currency does not proceed in the matter as would seem just and proper from the serious nature of ttie charges presented, he will at once institute criminal proceed ings against Comptroller Knox.
