The hearing before the Parnell Commis
sion was resumed yesterday. Two of the
Timet' witnesses were cross-examined by the
attorneys of the Irish leader. Evasion was
resorted to in order to avoid revealing im
portant information. A statement of the
money paid ior the published letters was
secured. Parnell was present.
Loxdox, February 19. It was a large
and interested crowd which, attended the
hearing before the Parnell Commission to
day, for it was understood that Mr. Jlac
i Donald, the manager of the Times, would
be cross-examined by the legal advisers of
the Irish leader. The witness had a very
jor memory concerning many pointed
questions, and absolutely refused to answer
others, for which he was severely rebuked
by Presiding Justice Hannen.
McDonald testified that he paid Houston
550 for the Parnell letter of the ICth of
June and ior Egan's letter to Carey. The
total pavments made to Houston amounted
to 2,530. He particularly avoided asking
from what source the letters were obtained,
because Houston said he was bou nd to se
crecy, which he asked the witness to respect.
Mr. MacDonald said the rime, statement
that knives and firearms were kept in the
League office in Loudon was based upon in
formation supplied to the writer of the arti
cle in which the statement was made. He
did not know directlv "who wrote the arti
cle, and he was not bouud to tell if he did
Mr. Asquith "Will you find out?
Presiding Justice Hannen The witness
says he cannot tell you. I do not know that
he is bound to inquire.
cofixmaxa the jiasaoer
Mr. Asquith pressed the question. Sir
Charles Itussell submitted that the witness
was bouud to inquire. Attorney General
"Webster said that he could not accede to
the witness going out of court to obtain in
formation that was not within witness' own
knowledge. Mr. Asquith again asked the
witness to obtain the names of the writers
of the articles in the Times. Presiding
Justice Hannen ruled that counsel was not
entitled to ask the witness to make inquiries,
but might question him as to anything
within his knowledge in connection with
Mr. MacDonald finally said that Mr.
Planagan wrote the articles that appeared
on March 7 aud March 10, 18ST. He had
forgotten who wrote the others. Mr. Par
uell's alleged letter to Picgott was then pro
duced. Presiding Justice Hannen asked
whether it was admitted that the letter was
genuine, and Sir Charles P.ussell replied
Attorney General "Webster then called
Mr. Ingles, writing expert, to the stand,
whereupon there was a sharp encounter. Sir
Charles Russell contending that justice de
manded that the source of the letter should
be revealed before he was called upon to
A POINT FOE TAlCfELU
Presiding Justice Hannen thought that
inquiry should now be made as to thesource
of the 'letters. Mr. Houston. Secretary of
the Loyal and Patriotic League, was then
sworn. " He testified that he first knew Pig
gott in the autumn of 1885, in cqnsequence
of a communication from l'igqott regarding
John Devoy. Witness inquired as to the
Irish American organizations, and instruct
ed Piggott to try to-substantiate his state
ments regarding Parneliites and crime.
The pamphlet entitled "Parnellism un
masked" was based upon Piggott's informa
tion regarding Devoy. In December, 1885,
witness asked Piggott to supply further in
formation for newspaper publication. He
agreed to pay Piggott a guinea daily for
hotel and traveling expenses. Later Pig
gott said it was useless to confine his atten
tion to Dublin and asked that his expenses
be paid to Paris. Piggott wrote to Eugene
Davis, who, Piggott said, could assist in the
Reference was made to a letter and wit
ness instructed Piggott, if possible, to pro
cure the letter. Piggott repeatedly went to
Paris, and finally told witness that none of
the letters could be given up without the
consent ot a person in if ew York. Piggott
Eupplied copies of five Parnell letters and
six Egan letters.
BOODLE CALLED FOE.
"Witness not having sufficient money to
send Piggott to America, saw Mr.-Buckle,
editor of the Times, in 18SG, but Buckle de
clined to take up the matter. Piggott re
turned from America with a sealed letter,
which he said he obtained from Breslin, and
which contained instructions to a person in
Paris to. give up the letters on certain con
ditions. Piggott went to Paris repeatedly
before he obtained the letters.
"Witness asked MacDonald to test the
genuineness of the letters, and said that if
they were used he expected to be reimbursed
for his expenditures. Up to the time of
their publication he had not bargained for
payment for the letters, but he made it a
condition that the Times alone should he
responsible for their publication. Witness
had nothing to do with the testing of the
signatures, and was completely ignorant of
the process by which they were tested.
Under cross-examination Houston said he
did not know that Piggott was in pecuniary
straits when he asked him to discover the
documents. He told him that it the letters
were forthcoming and were genuine they
would be paid for. At this 'point the com
Insists the Boys Were Shamming.

Itesnlts of the Controls In Surrounding
Town nnd-CittcH The Cold Weather
, Cause a Light Vote Same
In the smaller towns and cities of the
State a comparatively small vote was polled
at the local elections yesterday. The fol
lowing are the results:
Oil. City. In the municipal election Horton
C. Sweeney, Republican, was elected City Con
troller. The only other officials Toted tor were
Councilmcn, school controllers and consta
bles, the majority of thoso elected being Re
publican t. ...,,..

was done at the election, and over 900 votes
polled, a larger ote than usual for spring elec
tions being out. The Republicans elect Jesse
Reed Unrpcss. Amos S. liowlby, Tax Collector,
and John It. Wilson, Justice of the Peace, and
Councilmcn in the First and Fourth wards.
The Democrats elect a Councilman In the
Third ward, while the rote In the Second ward,
where an Independent candidate was running,
is close and in doubt.

torney A. F. Bole, by a majority of 205, aud 8
out of the 14 Councilmcn.
TlTUSVlLLK. The municipal election took
a peculiar aspect. To meet the exigency
causcd by the failure of the Supreme Court to
declare the Wallace act constitutional, the
Republicans decided to elect officers under the
act of 18GG, providing for but one branch of
Councils, and also to indorse and vote for pres
ent city officials. Democrats. They have onomore
3 car to serve of their original terms. As the
act of 1EG5 provides for but one year's term,
they will hold office legally whether the Wal
lace act is constitutional or not. The Demo
crats made nominations under the provisions
ot the latter act, and therefore only voted for
officcrb whoso terms expired, which wero
common councilmcn. Of these the Republi
cans lose two.
Washington. Jonathan Allison. Republi

ot "the eight selectmen, a gain of
two and the Common Council is Democratic by
1L, a gain of seven. The most signal defeat is
that of Common Councilman Thomas J. Mc

He stood in the way of city improvements, and
this municipal election was an inning for the
citizens and for paved streets.

A PARODY OiV LEGISLATION.
The Nlcbt Session of the House a Very
"Washington, February 19. Tift session
of the Honse to-night, was a perfect parody
on legislation. It wa's called for the consid
eration of business reported from the Com
mittee on Military Affairs. The first bill
called up was one appropriating 5100,000
for the erection of a monument at Pi
Greene, Brooklyn, to the memory of the
victims of the prison ships. Mr. Kilgore,
of Texas, raised the point of no quorum
against the measure, and it was withdrawn.
But although the bone of contention was
thus lemoved, the contention still remained,
and Mr. Felix Campbell, of New York, ir
ritated at the defeat by one man of a meas
ure in which he was specially interested,
determined thatno measure called up should
receive favorable consideration. Conse
quently, as each measure was called to the
attention of the Housc,Mr. Campbell raised
the point of no quorum, against it, and it
Appeals and entreaties were of no avail;
Mr. Campbell was unrelenting, and would
permit no legislation to be enacted. The
parody continued until 10 o'clock, when the
session expired by limitation.
HANNIBAL HAMLETS TOUE.
Ho is Warmly Welcomed by tho Legisla
ture of Minnesota.
St. Paul, February 19. Hon. Hannibal
Hamlin was the guest of the Legislature
for a short time to-day. He had been the
guest of Minneapolis friends, and was given
a grand reception in that city last night at
the Union League rooms. At the invitation
ot the Legislature he held an informal re
ception in the hall of the House this after
noon. After briefly expressing his pleasure
at meeting the Legislators he was person
ally introduced to them. The notable event
of the reception was the introduction of
Colonel Pfaendere, who is the only living
member ofthe Electoral College which
performed its functions in declaring the
election of Lincoln and Hamlin as Presi
dent and Vice President
The meeting was an affecting and hearty
one. Alter the reception Mr. -Hamlin re
turned to Minnesota, where he and his wife
have been entertained royally by the leading
people of the Flour City. They lelt ior
