A Remarkable Letter Produced
Whes9 Genuineness is net
THE PHILP TRIAL.

The Empire State Sure for Hancock
The State Committee
l'UE EVlS OF BATTLE.
Latest View of the Situation,
The follewing.leilcr from Marshal Jew
ell, chairman of the llcpublicau national
committee, was published S.itunl.iy by
Truth, the paper in which the ' Chinese
letter," alleged te have been written by
General Garlicld te II. L. 3Ierey, was
first published :
" New Yerk, October 20, 1880.
"My Dear General Garfield: I
think Truth w.is deceived by the Mercy
letter. They thought it was genuine.
Finding it is net,they have consulted their
lawyer and friend, and through him offer
te come out and ay se plainly, the only
consideration for it being consideration
for Judge Dittenhoefer, tlieir friend aud
"By consideration I mean that you and
myself should knew and tccognize it as
Judge D.'s act, aud the obligation, if any,
should be from you te him for it. Se far
as I could I have assured them that you
would se consider it. It's :t jrrcat service
"It is their preposition aud I have ac
"Yours, very truly,
" Marshall Jewell."
The explanation given of this letter by
Jeseph Hart, the publisher of Truth, is in
substance this : After the "Chinese let
ter" had been published in fac simile the
publication of ether J'.ic simile plates
which it was avouched would sustain the
authenticity of the letter was premised.
Mr. Hart learned, he says, that Jehn J.
Davenpeit had determined te seize and de
stroy this material en Tuesday evening,
October 2G, last, and in order te protect
himself went te his lawyer, ex-Judge
Auram J. Dittenhoefer. Mr. Dittenhoof Dittenheof Dittenhoef
er, who is a Republican, had before this
in conversation with Mr. Hart, insisted
that the " Chinese letter" was a forgery,
and uiged Hart te acknowledge it. Ilatt
had insisted that it was genuine. Dittcn Dittcn Dittcn
hocferiiew informed Hart that Philp was
te be arrested, ami said that Hart would
be foolish if he did net save himself. Hart
says he had made up his mind te set up a
trap for Marshall Jewell, and he accord
ingly suggested te Dittenhecfcr that
the latter should " influence me te
come out and say that we have beer, de
ceived" (about the authenticity of the
Chinese letter) and get the United States
district atterneyship as a reward for that
service. Dittenhecfcr, Hart intimates,
jumped at the suggestion, arranged au in
terview with Jewell, which occurred at
Dittcnheefer's office at 5 o'clock that
afternoon (Tuesday) and paid that he had
secured satisfactory terms fietn Jewell.
Hart took three witnesses and Mr. Jewell
his secretary te tbe interview. At the in
terview Jewell asked Hart if the letter was
net a forgery and Hart replied that it was
net and that he could prove 'that it was
net. Dittenhecfcr repeated that terms
satisfactory te him had been agreed te by
Mr. Jewell. Hart stipulated that Daven
port's contemplated " raid " should be
stepped, and Jewell premised that it
should be stepped. Jewell wrote the let
ter above pi iuted as the part of the bar
gain. Hart secured the copy of the letter,
aud, instead of suppressing his proofs and
announcing ncxtmerning that he had been
deceived as te the authenticity of the Chi
nese letter, reaffirmed in the paper next
day the authenticity of the letter and pub
lished the additional proofs.
What It Shows.
The New Yerk Sun reviews the above
startling revelations as fellows :
The above is se remarkable a document
that we could hardly help doubting its gen
uineness ; se we sent te the Rcuublican
headquarters te inquire about it. Mr. Jew
ell refused te deny, while his secretary ad
mitted, its genuineness.
What does this letter show? It hhews
that Marshall Jewell is a huckster in the
offices of the United States.
He is the confidential, chosen, besom
friend of Gen. Garfield, and this letter
proves that, knowing Garfield as well as
he does, he believes him capable of dicker
ing away most important offices for im
Jewell premises and feels sure Garfield
will affirm the trade!
And it is nothing less fhan the ofllce of
United States district attorney for the
mert important district in the United

State Committee Claiming 3O.O00 for
Xcw Verk aun.
The Democratic state committee closed
the real campaign work Saturday, and
most of its members started at night for
their homes te work in their districts eh
election day. They are thoroughly satis
fied with their work aud confident of the
result. Ne one has the least fdeubt but
that Hancock will carry the state, and
many think that the majority will be as
large as that received by Samuel J. Tilden
in 187G. A member of the committee who
was asked last evening te give the Sun a
statement of the work in the campaign and
the committee's estimate of the result cf
the canvass, replied :
"The canvass began July 20, and has
been prosecuted actively aud vigorously.
Mr. Tildeu's methods of organization have
becu followed, and his advice and counsels
have often been sought and always cordial
ly given. The Democratic organization in
this state is complete in every respect.
First, there are the county committees,
composed of one active man from each
town in the state ; then the election dis
trict committees, of two active party
workers in each electieu district of the
state ; and then the school district commit
tees of five earnest Democrats in each of
the 11,000 school districts of the state.
There is still another committee from each
read district. Thus an effective organiza
tion is kept up ready te respond any de
mand, and reaching down in every neigh
borhood from one end of the state te the
ether. Inquiries addressed te the school
district committees early brought in the
names of all the doubtful and undecided
voters in the state, and regulary every
week each of these men has been supplied
with Hancock documents and Democratic
newspapers. The requests for the names
and addresses of Republicans who had
actually declared their intention te sup
port Hancock brought in te the committee
the names of nearly twenty thousand Re
publicans, and they, tee, have been sup
plied weekly with proper reading. In ad
dition te this work, which has been a char
acteristic of the successful Democratic can
vasses in this state for seme years, there
has been an extraordinary speaking cam
paign far beyond any ever hart before by
the Democrats of New Yerk. Fer policy's
sake, in order net te apprise the Republi
can committee of the points being covered,
no announcements of meetings have been
published, but every locality has been
amply supplied with the best Democratic
talent in tbe country. Speaker Randall,

the reports from these meetings show that
the country Democracy was never se en
thusiastic as new.
"The later work of the campaign has
been devoted te arrangements for the
polling of every Democratic vote in every
election district of the state, and te pre
vent and punish all attempts at repeating,
fraudulent voting, false counting of votes,
and notably coercion of employees. Under
a law of last winter the committee has ap
pointed two poll watchers at every poll in
the state outside of New Yerk and Brook
lyn. Their selection was made .witjt a
view te secure the most intelligent, zeal
ous, and courageous men possible for this
important work, aud the cemmittee has
no fears of fraudulent voting or false
counting in any precinct in the state, al
though well advised that the attempt will
"In addlicu te the fact that the party is
thoroughly and earnestly united in every
quarter of the state, and that all factions
and leaders arc honesty aud actively intent
en Gen. Hancock's election, the local nom
inations are known te be unusually strong
and will assist very much te get the vote
out. Mr. Perry Belmont's canvass in Suf
folk, Queens, and Richmond ; Mr. Walde
Hutchius in Westchester; Mr. Gaul in Col
umbia, Dutchess, and Putnam; Mr. Lewis
Beach in Sullivan, Rockland and. Orange;
Mr. Pindar in Ulster, Greene, and Scho
harie, and Mayer Nelan in the Albany dis
trict, all determined te win, will bring out
every Democratic vote in these sections,
and, with New Yerk and Kings, will take
the party te Rensselaer county with at
least 110,000 majority. Te say that these
figures can be overcome is, in the minds of
men well posted in the Democratic can
vass, the height of absurdity. Clese cal
culators in the state committee claim the
state by 30,000."
The Defense of Fhilp.
A Cloud ir Witnesses Who Swear That the
Chlnehc Letter " Is Net In Ills Hand.
In the investigation into the Garfield
Chinese letter in New Yerk en Saturday,
Audrcw McLean, of the Brooklyn Eagle,
was called for the defense and testi
fied that he had known Philp for twelve
years and was perfectly familiar with his
handwriting. Having examined the Mercy
letter and its envelope he said, "I have
no doubt whatever ; that writing is net
the writing of Mr. Philp. I must have
edited as much as a thousand columns of
3Ir. Philp's 'copy.' I never knew him te
spell 'companies' 'cempanys.' "
Q. Would yen believe James MeDermett
en oath ? A. Net if he had any tempta
tion te swear te what was false.
Mr. McLean was net cress-examined.
Geerge Gorden,' another Eagle editor, tes
tified that he was familiar with Philp's
handwriting and that the Mercy letter and
its address were net in Philp's handwrit
ing. IIe would net believe James MeDer MeDer
eott under oath.
William C. Hudsen, a correspondent of
the Eagle, testified that he had been con
nected with that paper for twelve years,
and had been familiar with Philp's hand
writing all that time. The Mercy letter
and the address, en the envelope were net
in Philp's handwriting, and he would net
believe MeDermett uuder oath.
The manuscript of a novel written by
Philp was handed te the witness aud he
pointed out many instances of words ter
minating in "ys." when the plural was
written "ies" and net "ys." It will be
remembered that somebody testified for
the prosecution that Philp habitually wrote
" ys " for " ies."
William Street narvcy, another Eagle
writer, testified that he had known Philp
for fourteen years ; was atone time his as
sociate editor en the Brooklyn Union. " I
am prepared te say positively," he testi
fied, "that the Mercy letter and envelope
new submitted te me were net written by
D. L. Swctt, foreman of the printing
offices where are printed Chic and the
Dramatic News, te which Philp is a contri
butor, testified that he is perfectly familiar
with Philps handwriting, and that he saw
in the Mercy letter no resemblances te
that handwriting. I am a Republican and
am geins te vote for Mr. Garlicld, he tes
tified en cress-examination.
Henry Enten testified that he had edited
thousands of pages of Philp's manuscript.
After examination of the Mercy letter he
said : " With a full appreciation of the
nature of the oath I have taken I declare
before Ged I de net believe that this let
ter was written by Philp. I am a Repub
lican, an active member of a Republican
political organization and intend te vote
for Gen. GarGcld."
Jehn Watsen Pratt, a proof reader en
Truth, gave similer testimony. The Mor Mer
cy letter came te Truth office in type. lie
did net knew where it was set up origin
ally. Jehn I Davenport testified that the copy
of Philp's alleged manuscript which was
atttched te the complaint was brought te
his office by Detective T. E. Lonergan.
Where Lonergan get it the witness did net
Peter P.Delaney, reporter, testified that
James McDcrraett's character was bad.
Augustus Maverick, city editor of the
Brooklyn Eagle, testified that McDer McDer
mett's character was bad.
Jacob Abarbanall testified that in his
opinion the Merey letter was net in Philp's
James Pearson, of the firm of Pearson
& Baldwin, a furniture house, testified te
an intimate acquaintance with Philp's
handwriting. The Merey letter handed te
him he said was net in that handwriting.
He had always been a Republican and
sneum vote ler Uarbeld.
There was a quantity of testimony
showing the existence of the Employers'
At the evening session Jesse B. Wilsen.
a merchant of Washington, testified that
he knew Jehn G. Thompson, the scrgcant-at-arms
of the Heuse of Representatives.
At his office recently he saw the receipts
of members of the Heuse for their sala
ries. He had previously seen the signa
ture of the Merey letter and had a fac
simile with him.
Q. Did you see there a receipt of Gen.
James A. Garfield for his salary ?
Mr. Bliss objected.
Mr. Broeko said he proposed te show
that the signatures there bore a striking
resemblance te the signature of the Mercy
The court ruled that the papers must be

Q. Are you familiar with the hand
writing of General Garfield? A. I am
Mr. Breeke We have sent te the ser

tatives te produce these papers, and they
will probably be produced en Monday.
W. C. Colten, a rubber manufacturer et"
Brooklyn, identified several envelopes as
having been addressed te and received
Mr. Bliss I object te these envelopes.
Judge Davis He has net offered them.
Mr. Breeke Hew many stamps de you

Judge Davis What is the object of
Mr. Breeke I propose te show that
these envelopes, directed te " Brooklyn,
which is an independent place of delivery,
have the New Yerk stamp, " Rec'd," aud
also the BroekUn stamp ; that they have
two stamps shown en the reverse side, as
the Merey letter. Mr. Gayler was asked
whether any letters would have the New
Yerk " Rec'd" stamp upon them except
these for New Yerk and Mr. Gayler an
swered, " Ne." My object is te show
that these letters addressed te Brooklyn
have the New Yerk stamp and also the
Judge Davis said that Mr. Gayler was
only testifying as te a letter mailed from
Washington te Lynn, but with respect te
a letter addressed te Brooklyn it might
well be that they should have the New
Yerk postmark. The letters were admit
ted, subject te rejection afterwards if it
should appear that Mr. Gayler had net
testified as claimed by the defense.
Geerge Stimpson, of Brooklyn, an ex ex
eort in handwriting, testified that he had
been engaged as such for twenty-live years,
and had testified in cases where Mr. Ames
had also been -employed as an expert. He
first saw the Mercy letter en Monday in
Truth office, and compared it with ether
writings which he found there. He had
seen the Rockwell and Jewell letters. "In
my opinion," said the witness, "these two

After some testimony of no considerable
importance or positive bearing en the case

Judge Davis inquired whether it would be
possible te conclude by 12 o'clock, and en
