CHICAO, Aug. 30. "We have now lis tened to the testimony of all witnesses who, at the suctrestion of int.omttl ties, have been subpoenaed to appear be- inre us. All have testified, with the ex ception of a few who are out of the city. Are there any other persons present this morning who would liko to be heard?" Tiiat was the remark made by Labor Commissioner Wright after examining a batch of witnesses, which examination was closed a little before noon yesterday. The commissioner looked over his glasses around tho room. Nobody made any motions toward the witness stand and there was no response to the invita tion.

"The commission will meet and talk over the situaU m before determining on the nature of further proceedings," said Kernac after adjournment. He thought perhaps the remainder of the week would be required to complete the investigation.

The first witness was W. B. llnrnbeck. He is the acting town agent of Pullman, aud has power of attorney to sigu lease agreements for the Pullman company. He said all repairs to houses at Pullman were made by the Pullmau company at the expense of the company. Such repairs had averaged 3, t!T0 a month for the nast Tear.

THAT LETTER TO MKS. MivtrJS. Some Talk Abont the Latest Sensation la Colorado. DKNYEP, Aug. SO. -The talk here fol lowing the nrrt-st of Governor Wnite for violating the privacy of the mail is that it is nil a matter of politics. Populists who oppose Waite's renomination say the arrest was ni.i.lo at the instance of Repub licans, who want the Populists to nomi nate Wait as the easiest mau to lieat. Waite wants renon;!-,-ion, b.'lieviug that he cau moke a I . .er race than any other Populist. His "hrrest, say the anti Wnite men, was brought about on a trumped-up charge so as to secure sym pathy for him in the Populist convention. Waite, on the other hand, holds that the charge is made to injilre him. Mr, lik ens, the pulicu matron whose letter was opened, is a R.-pulilican. The letter is stated by some to lie .'i manly, straight forward letter from m in who wants a wife aud asked Mrs. Likens to recommend to him a good woman; :ot hers guy the letter was a bid for a mistress, and put .Mrs. Likens in the position, rf a procuress. Her pines has been wanted by thn muuicip.l powers that b rfor a long time, and tlM letter was made to do duty as a charce against her, without apparently thinking that its use thst way "gave away" the violation of the postal Jiws. As soon as .Mrs. Likens knew the letter was in existence she demanded it and Po lice Commissioner Muliins promptly gave it loher. 1m denying the charge against him Governor Waite said some letter had been read in his presence purporting to be a re quest of a Pueblo man tor a mistress, but he denied ever having had the letter or of having used it as a reason for the dis charge of Mrs. Likens. District Attorney Rhode said he held the positive statement of Chief of Police Armstrong that the letter had c ime from the governor. Tho letter was opened by Matrou Dwyer. DOUBLE TRAGEDY IN TEXAS.
