Friday, April 3, 1888.
The good people of Philadelphia have
lately been made somewhat comfortable by
the 'information that the price of gas con
mead by them was. on the let of March,
reduced from $3 to $2 40 per thousaid feet.
This looked like a clear reduetion of 20 per
cent, and people began to think that really
the gas office was disposed to be liberal to its
customers. Let us show how the so-called
reduction of 20 per cent. is made to work.
A bill is before us, presented to a party for
gas consumed between the 19th of De
cember and the 20th of March. From De
cember 19th to March Ist, 4,600 feet are
charged, at $3 a thousand, $l3 80, less 10
per cent, for payment within five days,
making the net cost, independent of 'the
United States tax, $l2 42. From March Ist,
when the so-called 20 per cent. reduction
took place, 1,500 feet are charged at $2 40
met per thousand feet, or $3 60; there is, to
be 'no 10 per cent. reduction for payaient
within five days, but a penalty of 5 per cent.
is to be added, if not paid within five days.
Thus the real reduction from the old price is
but 10 per cent. instead of 20, and if the five
days chance to pass without payment, it is
but 5 per cent. Under the old mode of
charging, the net cost of 1,000 feet of gas,
promptly paid, was $2 70; under the new, it
is $2 40; or if five days elapse, $2 52. In
stead of gaining 60 cents on - every thousand
feet of gas, as the announced reduction
promised, the best we am do is to gain 30
cents, and this gain may be cut down to 18
cents, if payment is deferred for five days.
-The Gas Trustees may not be able to sell
'their gas for less than $2 40 per thousand
feet, though we do not believe it. Rut they
resort to an unworthy subterfuge when they
abandon without notice the old mode of
charging, which has always allowed a dis
count of 10 per cent. for prompt payment,
and then say that they have reduced the price
of gas 20 per cent. For many years—per
baps ever since the gas works were fairly
established—the discount has entered into
the calculations of all gas consumers, and
there has been no good reason given for
abandoning the practice of allowing it, as an
inducement to prompt payment. Doubtless
the new plan has been regarded as a very
clever "dodge," by which, while the people
were amused with the idea that their gas was
costing them 20 per cent. less than it used to,it
was really costing them only 10 per cent ,and
In some cases only 5 per cent. less. The addi
tion of a penalty of 5 per cent., after the
lapse of five days, is not the least discredit
able feature in the trickery by which the
managers of a great municipal trust hope to
deceive the public. The patient public can
bear many burdens. But they require and
expect candor and honesty on the part of
those who impose the burdens. If the Gas
Trustees had announced a reduction of 10
per cent as the best they could afford, people
would have accepted it gratefully. But when
they announce a reduction of 20 per cent.,
and, by a new and unfamiliar mode of
charging, make it only 10 per cent., they are
guilty of a gross deception, which is un
worthy of men in such a responsible posi
One of the noblest uses to which wealth can
be put is the endowment of our colleges and
universities. It is only by such means that
the higher education can be brought within
reach of the masses. No fees for tuition,
however great the number of students, can
support the learned -Faculties of instruction
and provide suitable buildings with all the
necessary appliances of libraries, apparatus
and scientific collections. It is complimen
tary to the American character that we aro
so often called upon to shronicle the mrtuili
cent gifts made by our countrymen to in
crease the efficiency of our various institu
tions of learning,and Philadelphia, the home
of ra.Oiculi and of some of the most eminent
philosophers and silvans of the present- day,
numbers Alio among her citizens men of large
and liberal , views, whose . wealth isy freely
devoted to 40 ImiTanceptrit of science.
Among tilfshkettorui recently nude ftir
ob,Oel is 444siitt,by Mr. John A.: lin:. wn,
of mor, thousand• dollars to Lafayette Col
/eel kr; Brown is one of our oldest and
most respected citizens. His unostentatious
gifts, have from' year to year enriched the,
treasuries of the charitable associations of
this city, and now he has crowned a long and
honored life by this munificent gift in the in
terest of a broad'and liberal culture for Amer'
can youth. For ibis noble act he deserves and
will receive the heartfelt thanks of all wise
and good men.
Lafayette College, to which this donation
has been made, is rapidly becoming one of
the most important educational centres ofour
country. Founded over forty years ago, and
always characterized by the distinguished
ability of its instructors and the large propor
tion of its graduates who have become emi
nent in the various professions, it nevertheless
does not seem untirrecently to have attracted
any large share of public attention. At the
accession of Dr. Cattell to the presidency,
about four years since, the whole number of
students was fifty-one; the catalogue for the
present year, recently sent us, shows that the
Freshman Class alone numbers fifty-eight.
The Faculty of Instruction now consists, as
we also learn from the catalogue, of' sixteen
professors and two tutors, and the cur
riculum of studies has been enlarged
by adding to the old classical course
a parallel solentific course, which
includes all the studies of the Classical,except
Greek and Latin, for which is substituted the
philological study of , modern languages,
especially , our own. Besides these two
courses for the undergraduates, embracing
the usual period of four years, there is a
third course designed for those who wish to
pursue studies essentially practical or techni
cal,and this is divided into three departments,
viz.: engineering, mining and metalluity, and
practical chemistry. It is needless for us to
'dwell upon the manifold advantages offered
by this choice of studies, ranging from the
broad culture of the classics to the most
thorough special training necessary to prepare
experienced engineers and miners, and prac
tical experts in the application of Chemistry
to agriculture and the arts.
President Cattell's administration has also
been signalized by the erection of several
important buildings, among them an astrono
mical observatory and one of the most com
plete chemical halls in the country. The
apparatus,, cabinets and library have also
been greatly enlarged, so that, every facility
is afforded the learned Professors for imparting
instruction to the large and increasing num
ber of students in their various departments
of study.
It is gratifying to know that nearly all of
the funds for these improvements have been
furnished by Pennsylvanians. • Dr. Trail'
Green, of Easton, erected the observatory at
his own cost. The department of Chemistry
was wholly organized by two gentlemen of
this city, Mr. Wm. Adamson having en
dowed the Chair in the sum of thirty thou
sand dollars, and Col. B. H. Jenks having
built the laboratories for a bout the same sum.
J. H. Scranton, Esq.; of Scranton, and Mr.
Thomas Beaver, of Danville, have been large
contributors to the endowment fund. But
the most munificent patron of the College is
Mr. A. Pardee, of Hazleton, whose
gifts to it during the last three years, have
amounted to about two hundred thousand
dollars. This record of what has been done
for one college alone is highly creditable to
Pennsylvania, and shows that our citizen's
appreciate the value of the higher education,
not only for those about to enter the profes
sions of law, theology and medicine, but for
all those who are fitting themselves for mer
cantile life and for those scientific professions
which, in this land of abounding mineral
wealth, are becoming more and more im
portant to the full development of our re
Any citizen who happened to be abroad
yesterday afternoon when the gale apartg up,
had abundant !evidence furnished him of the
unclean condition of the streets; great, dense
clouds of dust were sent whirling through
the air, and this simoom of dirt penetrated
into dwellings and stores, damaging goods,
furniture and clothing, and almost blinding
its victims. The rain that followed laid the
dust and universal mud took its place. Had
the streets been in a proper condition of
cleanliness, this plague and the consequent
annoyance that arose from it would have
been avoided. These facts were brought to
the attention of City Councils yesterday after
noon, and while every member was forced to
concede the general prevalence of dirt, some
few were of opinion that the contractor was
doing the best he. could.
That may be; but men should not bargain
to do more than they can perform, and it
would be a poor excuse for Mr. Bickley, if
he hat contracted to tunnel the Sierra Ne
vada, within a given time, to say that he had
failed to accomplish his task because he did
not possess sufficient tools. Citizens want
the streets cleaned, and when they pay for
having it done they have a right to expect a
reasonable immunity from dirt. When the
present street cleaning contract was made,the
city was divided into two contract districts.
Two different parties held these contracts
'and in a few months the contract of one
of the parties was annulled on the ground
that the work had not been satisfactorily per
formed, although the contractor protested
that sufficient time had not been allowed him
to get things fairly under way. The entire
contract was then given to Mr. Bickley, the
remaining contractor, and a considerable in
crease was made in the amount of com
The contract of Mr. Bickley provides that
certain streets. among others Chestnut, Wal
nut, Market, Second, Third, Fifth and Sixth,
shall be thoroughly cleansed at least twice a
week, the work to be done at night.. The
streets not specifically named ,are "its be
cleaned once in each and every week.
Chestnut street was cleaned yesterday for the
second time in several months, and in both
cases the work was done in daylight. If this
be doing the best the contractor can do,what
a condition the city would be in if there were
to be even a alight relaxation in his exertions
or &falling off in his. ability.
The BULIZTIN would much rather do all in
its power to aid the contractor'to live up to
- his bargain with the city, than to throW any
obstaoles in I& way. But as an organ of
public opinion , it emphatically 'protests
against• the continued unclean condition of the
citY, and insists that if the contractor is doing
the best he can at this time, the means at' his
command are not adapted to tho ends aimed
at, and that he - has failed to perform his
share of the contract which he entered into
with the city.
Seled Council did its duty yesterday, in
the matter of Girard College, handsomely.
The minority report, which condemns and
*censures the ten Directors, was adopted, and ,
the highest branch of the municipal govern
ment has thus put itself right on the record
on this important question. The report,
after its adoption by Select Council, went to
the lower branch. Mr. Hetzel there offered
an amendment, requesting the ten Directors
to resign. Before a vote was taken on this mo
tion,however,Mr. Hancock,of the Fourteenth
Ward, moved to lay the subject upon the
table, and he mustered votes enough to carry
his motion. The following was the vote :
Yeas—Messrs. CODIVIV, Creely, Fareira, Gates,
winner, Hancock, Hanna, Harrison, Homey,
Kline, Mattagne, F. Martin, Miller Myers, Og

It is unnecessary to comment upon this
result. We deplore it, not only for the ab
stract injustice involved in it, but on aeeount

be called up, and pressed, and kept
before the public, until It is fairly and honor
ably disposed of. A wrong has been
done,and the offenders should be condemned
and censured, and those who desfre to bee
justice done in this case should not rest until
the *mend of the public is complied with,
and the flagrant wrong done to an innocent
citizen righted.
Lorenzo the Bravo is evidently determined
to have not only " the eyes of Delaware''
upon him,—though that should be glory
enough for an Ad Interim,—but he challenges
the admiration of the world as it represents
itself on the floor and in the crowded galleries
of the Senate Chamber. While fighting
officers like the gallant General Emory or
Colonel Wallace come quietly in citizen's
dress, when they are called, and tell what
they knew, briefly and modestly, the redoubt
able Lorenzo swells and fusses about the pre
cincts of the Court, in all the blaze of a
Major-General's full uniform in hope that he
will be summoned to stand as " the
cynosure of neighboring eyes," and tell, in
grandiloquent phrase, the tale of
how he "kicked Stanton out of doors" from
the War Office—in a figure. It is delightful
to contemplate a character like Lorenzo's, so
wrapped in its own self-complacency as to be
utterly impervious to the shafts of ridicule,
and utterly unconscious that not only "the
eyes of Delaware,"bnt those of all the"rest of
mankind," are laughing at him. Lorenzo
should not make himself so common. The
glory of his full-dress uniform will have
grown dull to the accustomed spectators
while he waits in full view, before his
turn comes to strut upon the stage,
and it will be said of him :
"So when he had occasion to be seen,
He was but as the cuckoo is in June,
Heard and not regarded; seen, but with such eyes
As, sick and blunted with community,
Afford no extraordinary gaze,
such as is bent on sun-like majesty
When it shines seldom in admiring eyes;
But rather drowzed,snd hung their eye-lids down,
Slept in his face, and rendered such asp6ct
As cloudy leen use to their adversaries;
Being with his presence glutted, gorged and fall."
Mr. Harper, of the Eighth Ward, intro
duced a resolution in Common Council yes
terday, asking for the repeal of the new law
which relieves the ruraltlistricts from half of
the city tax rates. The resolution was
adopted by the decided vote of 22 to 13, and
it is to be presumed that Select Council will
concur in this very proper request. Mr.
Harper is to be commended for bringing this
important matter promptly to the notice
of Councils, and we are glad to see his
views- sustained by such a handsome majo
rity of his colleagues. The equalisation of
taxation is of the utmost importance to the
whole community, and no, legislation should
be attempted that tends in a contrary direc
tion. The Board of Revision is composed
of fair and intelligent men, who have done
their duty well, in the adjustment of all ques
tions of excessive valuations of property, and
when the valuationits once fairly fixed there
should be no variation from the established
rate of taxation.
The Supreme Court in bane have reversed
the decision of Justice Read in' the case of
Rhoads et al. vs. Dunbar. The decision
will be found in full in another part of the
BULLETIN of to-day. This reversal was ex
pected, and, upon referring to au editorial ar
ticle upon the subject published in the Bon-
Lr.TiN in June, 1866, we find that the precise
ground assumed in these columns was
taken by the Court in its late deci
sion of reversal. The final disposition
of the case by the Court will tend to throw
considerable light upon the difficult question
of : What constitutes a nuisance? Justice
Read in his opinion took the broad ground
that whatever offends the eyes, the ears or
the nose (livery stables and manufactories of
all kinds included), or that creates apprehen
sion of danger, is a nuisance, and as such
must be abated upon the suit of any citizen
who may feel himself aggrieved. It is mani
fest that such a principle as this could not be
practically carried •out-in a. great city, and the
majority of the Court took a view that will
commend itself to the great mass of the coma
muoity when it said :
"It is a difficult matter at all times to strike
the true medium between the conflicting interests
and tastes of people in a densely-populated'city.
It requires the merchant mechanic, manufac
turer, baker, butcher, and laborer, as well as the
wealthy and employed or unemployed citizen, to
constitute a city. They all have rights, and the
only requirement of the law is, that each shall
ea exercise and enjoy them as to do no injury hi
that enjoyment, to others or the rights of others
i n th e sense in which the law regards injury,
namely accompanied by damage."

A Card From 111 r. Daniel Drew.
ms. the Editor Qt. the New York Tribune_-51n: In your
paper of March 28 there appears a leading article headed
hbe Erie \Var. , ' It relates that the
, question at issue is
one of "principles more thin men.' Had your article
confined Itself to the discussion of "principlea," I should
have bad no occasion to addressyou under own
name. But as it is really and chiefiy a discourno about
men, and, as I believe, a very tujurious die:urea an far'
as 1 am concerned in it, I must ask you to give me space
for a fe personal words.
I. The ta
discussion of "principles" in the article begins
with an hogenloua parallel between Mr. Vanderbilt'a
Inialatrakive ability and mime. There hi no such issue a.
this before rho public. I was interested conjointly with
Mr. Vanderbilt in the Harlem road, but I never was nor
sought to be his rival or opponent in its administration.
Of the Erie road, I have been irect for years, and, es
a director, have sought to the interesta of the road
to the best of my eighty heti havonover-been la a post
- - titre*, Control its administration as Mr. Vanderbilt that
of the roads which WI manages. Your skillful parallel,
then, goes for nothing, except, indeed, tut far us it hoc
served Its purposes u a rhetorical expedient to excite
odium ageJnst me.
2. Your article ineinuates (it does not exactly charge)
that 116,001),000 of •Erie stook woe Issued to me at 60 cents
on the dollar in atone fraudulent way. The Minnie fact
wasl lent 001330 millions of dollars to the road when it
In need, and received a atook at 60 as security. No
man or set a mert could, as I believe , have been found at
the time to lend the money on the same security. If there
were any fraud in the .matter it mui a very stupid and
profitless' one.
8. Your article fenifehes another pretty parallel. It
picturee Mr, tVanderhilt sitting in his office in Fourth
buying Erie. and." Mr. Drew , a fugitive from Juatlce
in New, deteeY." Here again the, rhetoric, I. impeach.

Letter of Senator Wilson on Grant and
Dear Sir; in a communication to the Anti-Stavery
Standard you say that "Senator Wilmon works for Grant.

you•do not Intend to be unjuet, but you certainly have
placed me in a false position. For thirty seven years I
Lave been a pledged temperance man, and 1 have
rhiven to be faithful to a canoe my heart loves
and my Judgment approves. While I have ever
regarded Intemperance to be a terrible calamity
•to humanity and a pin against God, I have
always felt the deepest pity and sympathy for all whose
lives were blighted by It. I know of no Radical whose
name has been mentioned for the Presidency who gete
drunk, or to whose nomination I have objected because
he rotnetimen drinks. 1 have teen General Grant in the
camp. Su his office, at his own house and at dinner par.
ties where liquor , were freely need by others, but I have
verer arm Ann drink even a plats* of totrusonor have I
ever seen him when I had the slightest reason to think
he was in any degree under the influence of drink.
You soy, further, that I work for Grant, who is not
a Radical. 1 have done little work for General Grant;
for it was not necessary that any one ebould work
for him. The Republica,. of nearly every State, with
great unanimity, have pronounced for him; but hill
result was not achieved by work, hut by the need, of
the country and the instincts of a patriottc and
Ilbertfloving peat*, I took occasion more than
two years ego to express on the floor of the Senate
boy conviction that a patriotic and liberty-loving
people, betrayed by the President, would turn to
that great soldier and summon him to marshal
them to' victory. Thirty.two years ago I fully come
milted myself to the anti-elevery cauee.and I have striven
with voice and vote to advance It to Its final and crown
ing triumph.' It was because I was an ant.l4lavery man a
radical republigan. became I believed the Cilll3o of weal and li - spathe! liberty to be above the ambitions and in.
tercets of public men, and because I believed General
Grout would carry that cause to soured victors', that I
turned to him as the Presidential candidate of the Re
publican party. I know him to be an heneet, just and
firm man, whose fidelity to hie country and to the equal
rights of all his countrymen cannot be questioned.
Gladly eou'd I have welcomed the nomination of some
one of the veteran anti-slavery men it such nomination
could have mitred the success of our cause in the great
struggle of this year. Hut the pioneer ant elavery men
bane ever been forced by the needs of their struggling
cause to be reiteacrificing and self-fergetful. The self.
sacrificing spirit and reitforgettutnese have achieved glm
Hour victories for humanity In the past. and I trust will
win in the future the election of a President under whose
adminittration the unity of the country will be assured
and the equal rights and privileges of ell its citizens se
cured. Your. truly. HENRY WILSON.

the litictuationg were from 187 U to 1883,,' prior to the ad-
Jetireiret nt of the board, with the closing trsneactiens at
137".,i, following which sales were made at 1375,1, and the
latest quotation on the street was 1873ii(0137.4. The de.
cline was owing to the extreme monetary stringency and
the consequent high rates paid for carrying coin Theme
ranged from 8.32 to 7.82. or within a thirty-second of
quarter per cent., and the difference between the cash and
regular price was a quarter per cent. durireg the morning
a greater diacrimination against cash gold than has ever
before been made In Wall street. Tho groan clearing!,
amounted to t647.93A000. the gold balances to *1,972.e.,48.
and the currency balances to $2.913 , 479. American milver
is quoted at 6(47 per cent. below gold, and Mexican dol
lars at 108@103]$ In gold. There was some pressure to
sell coin for cad], and wherever possible gold was bor
rowed on securities and thrown on the market for the
sake of the currency proceeds of the male.
'nem was an aggravation of tne recent stringency in
the money market. the pressure for loans being fully #lB
great if not greater than was over before known on Wall
Street. An eight per cent. cavitation in addition to the
eget rate of interest was freely offered by first-class
houses for call loans, and in many instances a quarter per
cent. commission was paid. Alike with yester
day. the borrowing demand continued until
after three o'clock, and some of the brokers
mere unwilling to make their bank ac
counts good in each from sheer inability to borrow on any
terms; and in such cases the deficiency was made up by
a deposit of securfthet The bunks have no money to lend,
and, omitting specie from the calculation, their reserve
is largely below the legal limit. Borrower» on stock
collaterale' have therefore to rely exclusively upon
the private bankers and lenders °inside of Wall
street. The cliques in New York Central and other
railway shares have literally scoured the country in
search of money. and have paid whatever rates of interest
were Raked t• Secure it. Borrowers in general have dine
likewise to the beet of their limited ability, and have
paid so munch as a quarter per cent. a day for loans until
Monday. their expectation being that the stringency
will by that time have abated. The result will
be that at the beginning of next week the loans
by which heavy amounts of the speculative rail.
way shares are now befog carried will mature,
and that many of the latter will be for sale. owing as
much to the difficulty of renewing or shifting the loans
as to &mire to realize. The drafts upon the batiks and
private backers from the interior. and. especially Penn
sylvania. have been usually heavy to meet the demand s
of "settling day." which °mire at any time between the
let and 12th of April, but chiefly on the' let, and the
money thus withdrawn will not begin to return here
until about the 10th instant.

nrnn.?—The itioneimaaa wait the most stringent
ever known in Wall street excepting during a season of
actual panic. The rates paid on the Brock. Exchange
were 34 and tf per cent per day. 34 per cent. for three to
five days , . and 134 per cent. for fifteen daye. Two Albany
banks telegraphed to their agents here to 1end411,000.000,
which they did; of this sum $600.000 were on deposit in
the Bank of Commerce, and that bank at first
objected I o comply with the requieltion
of their depositors' telegram, but after some delay
complied with it. The banks, as a body, are doing what
they can for their customers, with a few exceptions. The
rates outside of the banks ranged from 7 per cent. in gold
to 34 per cent. per day. although some pr ivate banks and
stock brokers who never charge mere than 7 per cent. in
cunency, as a principle, were free lenders at that rate.
The discount market is almost at a stand Milt ranging
from Bto 10 per cent. for prime paper. The. Assistant
Treasurer bought $1,503,000 of seven-thirties and Feld but
little gold.
'The Government bend market woe steady.
The stock market was laver in the looming, and con.'
riderable sales were made for cash, but prices were well

[From to-day's Tribune.]
A parr.'2.—Money continues as stringent IL at any time
during the preeeure. Geld interest has bees freely paid.
and at the price was called "cheap mosey." Gold has
bees carries' over sight at u, per cent., and on th'o bent
railway shares k' per cent per day was paid, with
per cent differences on stocks tuned for IS days. The
:;pressure has probably reached its height, but no ease
can be hoped for until statement day has passed,
nor cheap money until the country banks return to
the city the legal tenders required for their statements,
sad for the commercial payments of April I. The expo
rienee.of the put twenty days clearly proves that to the
clumsy working of the "National Currency" act the cur
rent pressure can be wholly attributed. The recurrence
of the qnarterly statement has forced the' banks Into a
contraction uncalled for by any weakness in the property
ut en which the) had loaned and demanded for no object
beyond making a statement to the Treasury of very title
value. The restriction upon the issue of earrency was
another prime canes for the stringency in money. Had
the "National Currency act" pouessed, the ellteticity of
the - State system. which allowed the inereare of thor
°orb!, secured currency. at those periods when the
wants of trade demanded it the pressure
would have been avoided, government
stocks and local securities would have
maintained their market price, and trade been un.
disturbed. The lesson ban been a Ilevere one, and should.
not be lost upon Congress. It should Bemire a currency
redeemable In New York with cola or legal tenders, with
the privilege given to any national bank to issue all the
currency for which they can pledge 5-Ws at SO per cent,
with the proviso that it is redeemed in New York at eight.
Commercial paper is quoted at 7(410 per cent.. with little
doing. Banks, as a rule, are as liberal to their dealers as
they can be, and present a decent appearance in their
gum terly statement.

Special Despatch to the Philadelphia Evening Hilletin
WASHINGTON, April 3.—The attendance in the
galleries to-day was about the same as hereto
fore, though the, number of members on the floor
was considerably smaller, not more than a dozen
having marched in when the House of Repro
senta.tives was announced by the Sergeant-at-
Arms. Others dropped in gradually, until pro
bably fifty members of the lower House were
present. The reading of the Journal
having been concluded, Senator Drake
moved to amend the seventh rule so that
votes shall be taten without division, unless the
ayes and noes bedemanded by one-fifth of the
members present, or reqtested by the presiding
officer. The amendment was adopted without
The managers Mon offered in evidence the
President's Message of June, 1866, in relation to
the fourteenth amendment to the Constitution,
with the correspondence with the State Depart
ment on the same subject:
After some consultation with the other coun
sel, Mr. Stambery said they did not see what con
nection this message had with any article they
had been called upon to answer,but that they had
no objection to its being read. •
Mr. Tinker, the telegraph operator, who was
the last witness examined yeitorday, took the
stand and was examined as to the genuineness of
despatches offered yesterday. Nothing further
was obtained.
Mr. Sheridan, the stenographer who reported
the President's famous lilthof August speech at
the White House, was next examined. Ile had
his original notes, taken at the time, and the
manuscript written out by himself from his
notes. He was examined minutely in relation
to the authenticity and correctness of his tran
The testimony of this witness was closely fol
lowed by the President's counsel, as !fit was con
sidered important. The cross-examination was
conducted by Mr.Evarts,going minutely into the
system of phonographic reporting, the questions
being with a view to ascertain with what degree
of accuracy a speaker was likely to be reported
by that system'.
The cross-examination seemed to indicate that
the defence would make a strong effort to sustain
the denial contained in the President's answer
that he need the language charged in the articles.
Jas. 0. Clephane, another phonographer pre
sent and reporting the 18th of August speech,
was next called.
This witness testified that he wrote out ver
batim thei report which was published the
morning after in the Chronicle, that it was in
tentionally published with all its imperfections,
when the usual , practice had been to
correct little errors in the grammar or
sense, and that, curious to see how his speech
would appear in print, he read the published re
port with more tban usual interest, and
thought. It was printed almost exactly as
it was spoken. He was cross-examined at some
length by Mr. Everts, who failed to discredit his
testimony in the least.
Neither the original notes nor
the manuscript of this witness
being obtainable, the Chronicle in
which the report was printed was produced, and
the witness was called on to identify the words.
Objection was made to this on the ground that
the notes or the transcript were the only proper

suance of a requisition of Major-General Scho

Strong stood charged with crime committed in
Richmond. It will be recollected that
Judge Fisher discharged Strong a short time
since, not recognizing Governor Peirpoint as
the Executive of Virginia, nor Virginia as
a State in the Union. Chief Justice Cartter to
day, in delivering a lengthy opinion in the case,
confined himself to the question as to whether
Strong was a refugee from the jurisdiction of
Virginia. and spoke of the requisition of Major-
General Schofield as being from the Executive
authority of that State. He concluded by dis
charging Strong, on the grouna,„ that the
evidence furnished did not Clearly and
sufficiently prove that Strong was a fugitive
from justice In the sense of the Constitution of
the United States. The District Attorney said ho
desired to have this important question thorough
ly examined, and therefore gave notice that he
should procure a now requisition for Mr. Strong,
with a copy of the indictment found against him
in Virginia, and the affidavit from persona in
that State, to show that the accused Is a fugitive
from justice. The counsel for Strong said he
would be prepared to meet the case.
