Mr. Ilendrlck. assert, that Oenoral UarAeld went
to New Orleans as a partisan, "without tbe au
thority of law," as if any law were necei.ary to
authorise a man to go lo New Orleans, and tbat
while there be took charge of the returns from
We.t Felecisna parish and "in one of the inner
room! 01' Packard's Cuslotn House," manipulated
the returns and prepared effidartts and interroga

in bie Marion speech and has ottered none sines,
lie cannot produce aoy. The charge Is unsup
ported by any evidence worthy of belief.
Jlr. llvndru'ks, on Monday night, at
Indianapolis, took up in detail Mr.
tiitrtield's connection with tho Presi
dential li and, and tho record as pro-
seuted consisting mainly of Garfield's
own sworn testimony, is a more dam
aging and disgtacelul record than wo
wish to see against any man wno

Mr. Carlield leatillcd;
(. Did you visit Now Orleans in
the month of Novomber, 1870 1 A. 1
Q. What time in tho month did yoo
go ? A. I think it was tho 14th day
of November that wo arrived at Now
Tho 14th day of November was im
mediately aftor tho Presidential cleo-
lion of 187U, and in his testimony he
sars that tbey leftNow Orleans to ro-
turn to YVBBnington ny on me ist,

mat, .mutes uaiuviu nun no iwv
Orleans, reaching thero about a week
alter tbo Presidential election, and
sflavine their eighteen days. What
did ho do while there? I charge, and
the Journal sayB if it is supported, ho
is a disgraced man : 1 chttrgo that he
occupied an inner room of the Custom
House, assigned lo mm, arm mm aione,
and in that room be saw witnesses,
black and whito, of Louisiana, and ho
conversed with thorn alone, and when
their testimony was not made out
satisfactorily to him, ho suggested in
terrogatories that should bo put to
them, and these interrogatories went
to tho Keturning Hoard, and that no
turning Board made a report against
the men that wero elected. That is
what J chargo. 1 say to you 1 will
make it plain lo you to night by bis
own evidence. What does the Journal
say to mo? That I havo lumishod no
respectable ovidonco, when I have re
ferred by pago and document to the
sworn testimony of Garfield bimsell.
What did ho do? First, gentlemen, 1
said that they distributed parishes
among these visiting statesmen, and
that in tho distribution of parishes for
investigation and manipulation, tho
parish ot West Feliciana loll to James
A. uarlleia. t will react wnat ne swore
to, and altor to night it shall not bo
beforotho intelligence of Indiana what
Hendricks said, bnt tho question shall
ho what Garfield said. Applause.
In his answer to a question, bo sivts :
Thereupon, in order to mako our
work of examination and our knowl
edge of tho caso as full as possible, tho
suggestion was adopted that all the
testimony relating to one parish bo
given to ono man. Among tho parishes
that wcro contested wore the two
parishes of Foliciana, and I bolievo
Mr. Sherman assigned these parishes
to Mr. J'arkor and myself, saying that
wo could divido them between os as
wo choso. I suggested to Mr. Parker
to tako bis choice Ho took East
Feliciana; 1 took Wost Feliciana.
q What did you tako it for?
I will givo tho answer of that prog.
nant question, and whon it is answered
tho Journal says that tbo man tho Ho
publicans havo upon their banner for
candidate is s disgraced man. Ap
A. 1 I
mean by that to say tbat I took
the copioa of all tho ollleial papers
which wero delivcrod to llio Return
ing Hoard touching tho election in
West Feliciana and for convcnicnco of
cxaming tbeso papers, as 1 did not re
side nt IhoSt. Charles hotel, I occupied
a room in tho Custom House in the
corner of the building. Laughter.
I don't know now whoso room it
was ; It was a room not very much
used; I think it was otic of tho private
offices, perhaps of tho Collector him
self. You recollect who was tho Collector,
don't yon ? It was Packard that was
running for Govornor and tbat could
ho not bold his oluco although ho got a
thousand more votos than 11 ay on, who
got tho voto of Louisiana. Applauso.
Gontlomon, what do you say to tho
proposition which I made in my spcoch
a month ago, that Garfield wool lo
New Orloans at a partisan ; tbat be bo
occupied ono of therooms of the Custom
liouso tor tho purpose or making up
i no evidence lor tho ilolarning Hoard :
When wis this room In the Custom
House ? I said this was an Inner room.
and propose to provo that by Garfield
Q. Whore did you convorso with
her, that is a negro woman, Amy
Mitchell? A. In a privato office in
tho Custom Houso.
Q. Ono of Govornor Kellogg's
rooms? A. No, sir; in ono of Mr.
Packard's rooms in tho Custom Houso.
(j. Who was there besides you two?
A. I don't think thero was anybody
olso present whon she was thoro.
y Who Drought nor to tne room r
A I can't say; somebody brought
her there. I think sho bad a little
child iu bcr arms. Sho sat down and
1 nskod her to tell mo tho story of her
husband's death, with all tho particu
lars, and I told hor that all I wanted
to know was the exact truth about it.
Q. Was thero a doorkoopor to the
room? A. I think thero was nobody
by at all. .
tj. Hilt was iiiereauooiKooperotii-
side tbo door? A. Tbat 1 don't
Q. Do you romombor that there
was a doorkeeper lor that room ? A.
Tbat door communicatod witn another
room ; there was no door into tne nan ;
1 think that door communicated with
tbo next room, which communicated
with tho hall.
Was it an inner room or not, gen
tlemen ? This is what Garfield swears
to. Tho Journal says it is not truo.
That is between Garfield and tho
Journal, and between tbom 1 would
not know which to bolievo. Applatiso.J
Q. So she did not go ti'om a nail
nlo that other room beioro sho would
got into tho room whoro you wore ?
A. 108 ; 1 taHo It that tne question
of the inner room is a settled question.
Q. Was that door leading lrom tbo
outer door into this open or shut ?
A. 1 don t know.
(J. Who occupied tho outer room
at the time? A. Thero wero sovoral
Custom Houso clerks who bad desks
behind a sort of railing.
O. In that inner room was tnoio
anybody beside yourself? A. No
body, aomo ol tho other men wno
wero feotting up BtatomcntB about
other purishes cumo iu there, but tho
room was assigned to me. Applauso
So tho question is, what did he do
in the inner room? and that question
was asked him under oath.
O. What did vou do ? A. I look
all those papors, commencing with the
protest, and read tnotn careiuny anu
mado a careful briof of their contonts,
giving tho summary of each witness
n my own way, as l wouiu n i wore
a lnwyor in tho caso. Applauso.
Thero is uarlicld at iot Drloans
the man that asks to prosido in tho
chief office of this great Nation. Thoro
liartield silting in that inner room
in the Custom House, where tho light
of day was cut oft", and rocoiving tho ovi
denco that turned tho Parish of West
Foliciana and examining them as
though bo wore a lawyer in tho caso,
and so ho swears:
When 1 had completed that 1 felt a
great deal ot anxiety to soe tbo men
who bad tcBliHool tt l cnnln
It was not enough to read tho ovl-
dence as it bad been fixod up for tho
negroes and tho whites, but It was
more than that.
"1 confess 1 felt a good deal of sur
prise and astonishmont at the revela
tions contained in thoso documents.
That I wont thero wilb no little ap
prehension that thero muBt bo a good
deal of lying in tho papors of both
Bides connocted with tho election. 1
made inquiry and found that a con
siderable number of tbe witnesses
whoso testimony 1 bad examinod, and
inquired for them and procured inter
views with them. I eat down with
them and asked tbom to tell mo in
their own way tbe atorics ol their re
lation lo the election. 1 cannot name
all the witnesses with whom 1 con
versed, but somo of tbom 1 remember
distinctly. Mrs. Amy Mitchell, (I shall
have something to say about hor di
rectly), tbo young woman whoso hus
band bad been killed during tho regis
try or election. 1 also remember Judgo
Duall, a Parish Judge, whom I exam
ined in the samo wit as lo tbo result
of tho examination. It was a conver
sation of my own with these witnesses.
I draughted somo interrogatories to
draw out more fully from somo of tho
witnossea tho testimony which they
had given ralhor in brief and some of
tho intorrogntorics which subsequently
wcro appended to the testimony ol
theso witnesses."
Now, notice what ho has sworn to :
That ho occupied that room, und that
when tho testimony was all handed to
him relating to tbo parish of West Feli
ciana, ho examined it and tho testi
mony, and ho mado nut a list of ono
half or two thirds of tho witnesses, and
bo sont for them ono by ono. Ho ex
amined them, snd when their testimony
was not as full as ho desirod, ho pro
pared additional interrogatories, which
went, In some cases nt least, beioro tho
Returning Board. A little further about
what ho did :
Q Some or these affidavit I notice
in tbo West Feliciana caso were mado
after you arrived in Now Orleans,
Did you have anything to db with
them yourself in taking thorn ? A
N othuig, oxccpl that in somo tnstancos,
as 1 havo related, I proparod Interro
gatories. '
Now, gentlcmon, he mentions as tho
moat romarkablo case in which he pre
pared luo questions lor the witnesses,
tho caso of Amy Mitchell, so I will
reafl what Garfield swore to in regard
to that case.
Q As regards the caso of Amy
Mitchell, which made an impression on
yon, can you toll whothcr it was before
or after you wore furnished with
copy of hor affidavit that you had this
conversation witn her J A. it was
afterward. It was tho reading of tho
alltdavit that improssod mo, and
asked to have hor sent to mo.
O 1 soe that tho affidavit appears
to havo been sworn to the rfUth ot .No
vombor 1 A. I advised them to tako
a fullor slatomont by intorrogatorioe
lrom Amy Mitcholl, and 1 thtnx 1 pro
pounded a portion of tho interroga
tories. Tho preliminary statement,
tho simple affidavit, was carlior.
Now, genllomon, I will turn over a
page and boo what tho caso of Amy
Mitchell was. (Turning tbo leaves of
a book.) huo first made an affidavit
in tbo Custom House whoro sho was
examined privately by James A. Gar-
Held. That affidavit was not lull
enough. Ho prepared additional in
terrogatories lo be propounded lo her
and she answered thoso interrogatories,
and in her testimony beforo the samo
committeo sho afterward hmrlf mort
that there vat no truth in the statement
given in response to UarMd't interroga
lories. In answer to qtiostion pro
pounded bv Govornor Cox. of Oliio.
who is a Republican, Amy Mitchell
said she repealed nor direct tosll
mony that every statement contained
in llio anidavit was false ; mat she did
not say anything because she know it,
but said what they told hr to say. Hot
testimony also showed that sho had
bcon trained in the Custom Houso to
testify beforo tho committeo. I don't
say that Garfield was present when
she swore to tbo answers to tho inter
rogatories, but ho prepared tho inter
rogatories alter ho had an interview
with that colored woman, when thoro
was no person besides themselves pres
ent; and tho samo woman comes beforo
the committee of Congress, not in an
inner room, not when the light of God's
day is shut off, but sho cornea beforo
tho committeo of Democrats and Re
publicans, and in that testimony, given
under oath and under the test of a
cross examination by the Republican
members of tho eommitloe, she says
there was not a word of truth in the testi
mony which shfqant in answer to Gar-
field's questions. f ArplauB0. . ,
me noxt purpose, gentlemen, 1 novo
in my mind is to ask why did General
Garfield spend eighteen days in tho
inner room of tho Custom Houso ?
Why did ho have privato interviews
with the colored and white peoplo
whoso testimony was to bo taken to bo
usod before the Returning Board ? and
why did ho prepare intorrogatorios for
tho witnesses ? I will answer in his
own words:
(J. Hut didn't you understand that
in the cases where you suggested that
interrogatories should bo prepared in
stead of ovidence, they wero to go be
ioro tno Iteturning Hoard ' A. lcs,
sir. .
I wish to connoct directly this trans.
action with tbo duies of the man who
tukes the solemn oath to deal fuirly. it
was his duty as a member ot tho com
mission to deal fairly.
Jlio next question is, what cid Gar
field know in regard to Losisiana.
That wo find on pago SO.'). I say ho
know Louisiana was Doinoeralin by
8,000 majority whon he sat in that
inner room and had private conversa
tions with tho witnesses and prepared
interrogatories lo guide and control
their testimony, when ho was at that
work, and whon ho was writing a
brief to mako it appear tbe other way,
ho know that Louisiana had cast a
Domocratio majority of 8,000, and hero
is his sworn testimony on that subject :
Q. Did you get any idea how tho
vote of Louisiana stood lrom tbo face
of the returns ? A. I had all those
ideas that could bo got from tho news
papers and the leaders of tho different
parties. V o had hail, of course, very
full information of that sort.
Q. Presuming that thoro wero not
somo parishes to be thrown out by tho
Koturning isoard, it was very cloar
that tho Slate had gone forNicholla

very woll understood by tho timo I

to return against the truth that Tildon
was boa'.cn in Louisiana. Could you
suppose that this man was to rolurn

came and conducted himself at the city
of N ow Orloans, and holpod to prepare
the caso, and helpci to got a false re
turn from a false and perjured return
ing board camo on U Washington, and
then what do you tkink he did whon
thero was a bill proposed in Congress
tho bill that did finally pass to ap
point a commission composed of five
mombors of llio house and five mem-
bors of the senate and five mombors of
the supremo court to hold a conference
upon Ibis great itsue? Whon that
bill was pending Garfield got up and
said, no, it must not bo ; and horo are
tho reasons ho gave :
"It assumes tho right of Congross to
go down into the coliegos and inquire
into all tbo acta and tacts connected
with their work. It assumes thejight
of Congress to gojdown into tho States
to review tno act ol every oliicor, to
opon every ballot box, and to examine
overy ballot cast by 7,000,000 ol
Americans, i uat was iiarncia s oo
ioct to tbe bill that if it did pass and
that those liitcon mon appointed unuer

back ol all technicalities and returns,
and to pass npon the real fact of the
caso. to co into the ical ballot box and
soo how the votes wcro, and to decide
tho case npnn tho real truth. And
after that when the bill passed, and ho
became one of tho filtoon, be voted
every lime that tbey should not opon
tho door to Invostigato, bnt that the
law closed the door, and said that
Kellorif's certiflcate'and the certificate
of the Returning Board was stronger
than law and tho Constitution and the
judgment of Congress. And his voto
was tho eighth voto against seven
that decided that they should not go
behind the Returning Board. Ap
plauso. Mr. Julian said, "whon ho stood in
tho Houso it was Garfield speaking,
but when he was upon tho commission
it was the party domanding powor,
monoy and olllco." Applause. Let
me read you this oath ho took. I tuke
it from Mr. Julian's speech : "I, Jas.
A. GarGold, do solemnly swear that I
will Impartially examine and consider
all questions submittod to the Commis
sion of which 1 am a member, and a
truo judgment rentier thereon agroea

Probably the moanosl trick that was
evor played on a white man, was play-
od lust week in this city, and tho fact
that there Is no vigilanco committee

of llio trick aro alive. A business man
had just purchased a now dtitf h-it, and
ho went into a saloon with hall' a
friends to fit tho hut on his bead.
Thoy all took beer, and passed around
tho hat so all could see it. uneoi tno
meanest mon that evor bold a country
olllco wont to the bar tender, and had
a thin slico of limbtirg cheese cut off,
and whon tho party wore looking at
tho frescoed colling through boor glass
es, this wicked person slipped tho
choose under the sweat leather of the
hat, and tho man put it on and walkod
out. The man who owned the bat is
ono ol your nervous peoplo, who is sl
ays complaining ot being sick, and
who foils as though somo dreadful dis-
oaso was going to take possession of
him and carry bim off. Ho went back
to bis placo of business, took off bis bat
and laid it on tho tablo and proceeded
to answor somo letters. Ho thought
he detected a smell, and when his part
ner asked him if bo did. A clerk said
it was evident somebody's foot needed
washing. Tbo man turned pale, and
said ho guessed ho would go homo.
llo met a man on tho sidewalk who
said tho air was full of miasma, and in
tbe street car the man who sat noxt
to him moved away to tho other end
ol the car, and asked him if ho had jost
come from Chicago. The man with
tbo bat said not; wbon tho stranger
said they wore having a good deal of
small pox thore, and be guessed ne
would got out and walk, and he pulled
the bell and jumped off. The cold
perspiration broke out on the torchead
ol the man with tho now hat, and he
took it oil to wipo his forehead, and the
whole piece ol chocso soe mod to roll
over and hicatbe, and tho man got the
full benefit of itand camo near fainting
away, lie got homo, and bis wife met
him and asked what was tho matter. He
said be believed mortification bad sot in,
and she took ono whiff as bo took off his
hat, and said sho should think it had.
" Wherodid you got into it ?" said sho
"Got into what?" said tho man, "I
have not got into anything, but pome
deadly disease has got hold of mo,'
disease that emcllcd iiko that had got
hold of him, and was going to be
chronic, ho tell that he would be a

Sho got his clothes off, soaked his feet

hat was lying on the center table, and
tho children wonld oomo in and got a
smell ol it, and look at each other with
reproaehlul glances, and go out and
play. Tbo man slept and dreamed
that a small-pox flag was hung in front
of his houso, and that he was riding in
butcber wagon to the pest houso.
Tho wifo sent tor a doctor, and when
tho man of pills arrived, she told him
all about the caso. The doctor picked
up tbe patient's hat, tried it on and
got a enitf. Ho said tho hat was
pickod beioro it was ripe. Tbon tbo
doctor and wifo held a post mortem
examination of tho hat, and found tho
limburgcr. Fow und short wore tho
prayers they said. Thoy woko the
patient to prepare his mind lor tho
revelation that was about to bo made.
Tho doctor asked him if his worldly
affairs were in a satisfactory condition.
llo gasped and said that they wero.
The doctor asked him if he had made
his will. He said that he had not, but
that bo wanted a lawyer sont at onco.
Tbo doctor asked him if ho felt as
though bo was ready to shuffle off.
The man said he bad always tried to

wbat it was that smolled so, and told
him ho was as well as any man. Tbe
patient pinched himself to seo if bo

called for his revolver, and tho doctor
couldn t keep up with him on tbe way

defeated at the polls was declared to

military violence, struck a deadly blow
at our systom ol representative govern
There is no intelligent man who does
not know, no man who will not admit
that the Domocratio party presented
to the world a noble example of patri
otism whon it consented to submit, lor
a timo, to that unparalleled crime;
when it calmly decided to bo robbed of
tho results ol its victory and permit
tho th fcalcd opposition to triumph by
t riminul methods, rather than plunge
the country into the horrors ol civil
war. 'i'hut example of patriotic devo
tion to tho good of the peoplo, that
sacrifice on tho altar of peace, baa no
parallel in tho history of any country.
But when that decision was made,
and the victors assumed the place of
tne vanquished, thoy believed tbat tbe
groat crimo of tbo ago would be re
membered and punished iu 1880, and
tho Cincinnati Convention stated only
an admitted truth when it assorted

Tho reader of current events muat
como to the conclusion that Garfield is
a confidence prevaricator. The Uar
rishurg Patriot in a late issue draws
this picture of the man who wants to
bo President :
"Gonoral Garfield's testimony beforo
tbe Do Golyer Investigating committee
is a characteristic instance ol his habit
of prevarication. Ho declared in bis
vindication speech to bis constituents
in 1876 that ho had labored hard dur
ing most of a night in preparing the
brief of argument for tbe De Golyer
pavement tor which ho received the
05,000 foe, and that he argued the case
beioro tho Washington Board ol Publio
When before the Investigating Com
mittee as a witnoss he was asked first .
whether he filed an argument with
tho Board, and he answered that he
had "an impression tbat he bad bled
it, but was not "certain." Two years
before be boldly told his constituents
that ho argued tbo case before tbe
Board, llo was next aBkcd by tbe
Committeo whether ho at any time
appeared before tbe Board or made
any argument whatever. He answered
"1 do not romoinber that 1 did but I
did speak to Governor Shepherd on
the ejubject, giving my opinion in its
favor." When Govornor Shephord was
brought on tbo witnoss stand be testi
fied that all Garfield did was to speak
to him once on the Bubjocl.
This is the way in which the Chair
man of the House Committee on Ap.
iiropriations earned his $5,000 from
)o Golyor, by speaking once to Boss
Shepherd, llo told bis conBtituonts
of his arduous labors in preparing an
argumout for the Do Golyer wood
pavomont andof his delivering the argu
ment beforethe Board of Pubilo Works.
Ho subsequently awore tbathearguod
the case bofore the Board, but whon
cross-examined ho "could not remem
