Albany, Juno 28. .fames Tillingpost the assistant president of the Central Hudson River Railway since April 1st and for eleven years with tho road tes tified that he dul not raise money on his own credit on May 24th and 25th. Graves of Albany "cashed a twenty thousand dollar draft on May 25th for witness, which witness took to Buffalo and put in a private safe and then deposited it in the bank. Ho did not talk with any member of the. Legis lature the night he received the money. He first met Barber accidentally in the hall of the Delivan House a few weeks ago and went to Richardson's room with him to ask that he be kept in formed dailv as to the, Senatorial vote. Never metDepew in Barber s room and don't know Charley Edwards or Ed ward Phelps. The currency was a mat ter of my own and was used in Buffalo in my own private affairs. Buffalo banks are some times short of currency. I intended to use the money in real estate transfers but was absent at the proper time and did not use it. I knew a man named Churchyard 'but ncAer paid him a dollar. DAVENPORT ON THE STAND. John I. Dayenport resumed the stand and said: "I met Senator Stratton at !) o'clock next morning, as agreed, and he told mc that he could not accept. Then he telegraphed Keren that Strat ton could not accept, but tearing the dis patch would not reach I telegraphed him again, saying that Senator Stratton could not accept. I received a dispatch irom lvnox saying mat under the cir cumstances he would allow his name to be used. That was all I had to dowith the matter." Question "You had a conversation with Stratton about his appointment as marshallr ' Answer "It was not. It was my own opinion that Stratton could have the office if he would take it." Q. "Are you at liberty to state the conversation you had with the Presi dent about the U. S. Senatorial contest here?" A. "I am." Q "What was said?" Answer "lie simply asked me whether I knew anything about wheth er Uonklins: or l latt wore to he candi dates." Q "Did he express a strong desire that they should be re-elected?" A lie didn't, lie has expressed no wish or desire upon the senatorial question. I had no authority from the President to offer the U. S. Marshal- ship to Stratton. I acted in the matter simply at the request of Knox. I be lieved that Stratton' s name would be confirmed if Knox recommended him." Q "Did he ask, 'who is Stratton' when you mentioned his name?" A Yes, I think so. I meant John K. Stratton of New York. 1 had no fur ther conversation with him. I knew Roscoe Conkling didn't think the New York Central was in any wise interested m the Senatorial contest. As an official of the Southern Central road Charles I. Ingessoll, of Westlield, testified that he had been hern four weeks in the interest of Depew and the administration. I knew Sessions four or five years, Bradley only since Jan uary. I supposed Bradley would vote for Depew. Never paid him any mon ey ; nooody paid him. Bradley told me that his constituents strongly opposed Conkling and he was through voting for them and would vote hereafter for Depew. I told this to Sessions.. John I. Davenport testified : I have read Senator Stratton' s document re fleeting on myself and President Gar field. I received permission from the President to state what took place be tween us Mr. Knox and Postmaster Ganeral James also granted permission for me to state a talk with them. 1 went to Washington in May on Wal business. At breakfast at the. Wil lard House the names of Hugh Corner and Col. Erhardt were mentioned in connectien with the marshalship. After breakfast I went to the White House with the Postmaster-General and the President asked who would be a good man for the marshalship of New York. I said I couldn't tell. He asked about Knox. I said it would bo an excellent appointment. He asked me to see Knox at the Arlington. I saw him and he insisted that he would not give up his profession for the position. Then Garrens and Erhardts names were again mentioned and I suggested Stratton, I went back to the White House and suggested his name to the President, but lie did not know Stratton. After talking a while I sent that telegram to Stratton and met him at the club and I asked him if I could use his name for marshal. Strat- ton said, tlo you know whether Conk ling or Piatt are to be candidates? I said no. He said, where are you in this fight, and I said with the President, lie didn't know whether either would be a candidate, but did not want to be embarrassed, could tho oiler be held open until after the senatorial fight. I said J must have an immediate an swer. Of course he would be expected to oppose Conkling and Piatt. He wanted to consult with Judge Gardner and answer in thti morning, which he did, and his answer was tliat he could not accept. Knox telegraphed me that night to suggest somebody else if St rat ton would not accept In my interview with the President, and I knew Knox did not want office, and I knew that many of President Garfield's nominations were confirmed, and I thought Senator Stratton' s would be. Wickman's men from Erie county testified that they had a conversation with Bradley on the 8th of June before he made his charge in the House. He spoke about his voting. I spoke to him about C. H. Russel's change of vote and told him it Would be good for him and his constituents, if he would make a similar statement. He said lie was go ing to quit votingforConklingand Piatt and vole for Cornell and Rogers. I am sure he did no t say he would vote for Depew. 1 have heard a great deal of talk about members selling votes prior to this investigation. It has been se riously saiil thatvot.es of members could lie bought with money, but I cannot say who saiil it. I really thought Bradley would vote for Cornell and Rogers, and so told it. The counsel of both sides here announced that they had not fur ther evidence to oft'er. E. A. Carpen ter said there were discrepencies in the testimony of Davenport and Stratton which it would be well to have explain ed if possible. . Davenport never mentioned ívnox s name but once. He stated that Knox's name would be put in place of Judge Choate s. lie never mentioned to me that he had had a conversation with Knox in Washington. It also suggest- eti mat i snoum mini me muu-r under advisement until morning, ind if I could not take the office he wanted I should see Gardner and ask him to take it. He did not ask mc at any time to keep the matter con' fident: I did, however, keep the matter private. I assumed that he had author ity to offer me office' 1 had not in my mind the present cabinet or anyone else. Particular Witness then denied the conversation as gi'ncn by him on the first examination. Chairman Scott announced that the committee desires to hear the counsel sum up. Bangs said he did not care about summing ur unless the other side, wanted to. Smith said he. did not think much light could be thrown on the case by summing up. He did not believe what he could say would change the opinion oí a single member ot the committee. It was agreed not to sum up. The com mittee then went into executive session and soon afterwards adjourned. Hiniuff Null. Denver, June 23. A suit that is of very great importance to the mining in terests of the State, was argued yester day before Supremo Judge Miles in the United States Court. The suit was that of the "Star Hope" against the "Smug gler." and the question involved has reference to the location of the discov ery shaft in a mining claim. The Smuggler is a Lead vil le mine. The prospector sunk a shaft and drifted, striking a vein at a distance of several hundred feet from the discovery shaft He therefore located his claim, taking the point where the vein was struck as the centre instead of locating from the discovery shaft. This location placed the discovery shaft in a corner of the claim. Other parties located the "Star Hope" and surveyed in uw Smuggler ore. The question is now win .;er the Smuggler location was a legal one, the point raised being that the discovery shaft ot the Smuggler is not in the con ter of the claim. The suit is held for decision. Tbe Ktar "out. Washington, June 23. General Bra- ly to-day, through his counsel Shellen- irger and w Uson applied lor an inves tigation by the grand jury, the star route charges. He says the press had bitterly assaulted him, the liovernment agents had been procuringfal.se evi dence against him and he objects to the ase being postponed till tall, claiming the privelege of a speedy trial. Col. Cook, special star route counsel, said the evidence was not quite ready for the grand jury. Not a single case is quite completed and it would result in atailureto begin trial now, and mat the Government did not intend to pros ecute but to clear itself of tho respon sibility if they were wrong. The charges extend from Texas to Oregon, and all over the western border and it might be necessary to call witnesses from far distant sections. General Brady wrote a letter, pre sented by his counsel, accusing the government of filling the press with false reports. Knowing their being government agents shielded them from proceedings lor libel. Col. cook, m re ply, referred to certain Washington newspapers as reputed organ.s of the star route ring, and of the purchase of such papers by the ring. Brady waul ed the privilege to examine the records of the Postolhce Department. Cook re plied that Brady need not pretend ig norance of those records after control ing them three years. When the mat ter was before Congress he showed en tire familiarity with it. He could not have them to make his defense. JDlsaatrons Fire t Tombstone. San Francisco, June 23. Tombstone dispatches say that a fire swept over i space of six blocks in that place to-day destroying about one hundred and fifty buildings including a large part of the business portion of the town. The losses will probably aggregate $250,000. About eight hundred people are home less. The buildings were mostly of cheap temporary character. Tho fire originated in a saloon from opening barrel of whiskey the fumes of which communicated with a cigar lighter Water being scarce and having no fire engines but little could be done to check the flames except to tear down buildings. No serious accidents oc curred. San Francisco, June 23. Inquiry among insurance companies and ageu cies show that the loss to them by the Tombstone fire will aggregate not far from $100,000, possibly rather over than under that figure. rlli Cnroliiin Politics. New York, June 23. A Tribune's Washington special says: Tho condi tion of the Republican party iu North Carolina is scarcely less complicated than that of the party in Virginia. The temperance movement organized pri marily in the legislature of the State by Democrats at the instance of ex-Senator Merriman, has already had the ef fect to split the Republican State com missions into two factions, and is likely to divide the party in the Stale unless the administration interferes.
