The proceedings:in regard toMr. Woolley

XvlLfi - liio.Bltsslatt.—The fifty:third sec
tion, in reference .to appeals from assess
ment and taxation, being before the Com
mittee, several amendments of detail wore
offered and discussed. •.
In the discussion of an amendment offer
ed by Mr. JENUKES -to %the fifty-seventh
section, proposing to give to the District
Attorneykthe power to discontinue sults in
qui tam actions or enter a voile proecqui in
criminal cases, Mr. SCHENCK argued
against the striandreent, and stated that the
"whisk t eY ring" had Its - aiders and abettors
Its often in the District Attorneys
as in all other officers of the law.:
He , had- -in his mind •one proof
ihrnished to : the keotnntittee of Ways and
Means—the case of a judge in one, of the
federal courts, ,and of a district attorney,
who had divided "black mail" between
thern, 'which was the consideration for their
letting off some sixty culprits arraigned
before the court. He trusted that it would
result vet in an impeachment of that judge.
The Committee ought not to throw, ovary,
thing into the power of district attorneys.
He should hold a veto over all these cases.
He was perfectly willing that in a proper
case a district attorney should have his
remedy against any passibility of fthe de.
feat of the ends -of justice, by continuing
his case If witnesses are spirited out of the
.g,.114024111.1t, Minot kpuble

by whom they were selected. He knew
=that was the case in the Eastern District of
Pennsylvania, and ho presumed it was so
The amendment was modified by strik
ing out the power tUenter a uolle proswei
and agreed to.
Mr. PRICE offered an amendment to the
fifty-seventh section, providing that in
cases of compromises no less sum than
twice the amount of the tax shall be re,
ceived. Agreed to.
Amendments as 'to matters of 'detail,
- prinelptdly legal technlealltieS, 'Were offer
ed to that and subsequent sections, and
discussed under the five minute rule. Some
were agreed to and some rejected.
-After disousalon of, the tall as, far as the
seventy-fifth section, the, Crommittee rose
