The Lexotv Inquiry.
NEW Yo c , Dec. 29.-Notwithstand-
ing the general impression that this
Would be the last day of the session
-of the Lexotv
committee for some
clays at any rate , and the fact that
several prominent police officials
were yet to be examined , the attendance -
- ance of auditors to-day was much
smaller than usual. Counsel Goff ar-
riveti just forty minutes late. Senator -
tor Lexow first said that lie had received -
ceived a letter from Anthony Comstock -
stock , but that the senators did not
think it right to have Mr. Colnstoclc
.come to court , , as the matter was outside -
; side the scope of the committee.
Dir. Goff then said : "Through the
I kindness of the Associated Press - I
have been supplied with a copy of an
iutercicw with Mr. Comstoclc last
night , and I tvi1L now say that I de-
dine to say anything or have any
cominnnication with Mr. Comstock
fiutil he puts into writing all he
knows and all he is prepared to say
in reference to a certain case in which
he stys ; I was prosecutor while holding -
ing the position of assistant district
attorney. The chair is still open for
tiny person who wishes vindication ,
and as this committee will have to adJourn -
Journ very soon I feel sure that there
, ' will be a number of claimants for viii-
i dicatian after the session has ended. "
inspector Williams was then re-
calletl to the stand and Mr. Goff
asked him if he ever had any United
States bOfIS. The witness said that
he never had. Several questions as
to the witness' property followed and
also a few questions about his yacht
t "Elenenor. "
Then Mr. Goff began asking how
i much money Williams got as gratni-
' ties while in command of the Tenderloin -
: loin rccinct.
! Not a penny , " was the reply.
'i I "Did von get any money ? "
"Yes , but not in the Tenderoin , as
3-on call it. I got money down town
from the firm of Fliess S ; by , 47
Ilroadway. "
"flow nIucb did you yet ? "
1 'About $3,000 or $0,000. Mr. Fliess
said he was dealing in stocks. I gave
him no money , but he said lie was
i Willing to take the risk. I did not
knot- anything about the business. "
' -'Phis Mr. Fliess is connected with
the iiollywood Whisky company , in
which you were accused of having an
iimterat ? "
"Yes I believe but he had
, so ; no
Ii position in the company at that time.
i I lie bid me his brother was connected
t with the company. "
"Did you ever send for an envelope
a cont.t r xi valuable property and
have it taken from Wardman Dunlap's
room when he was dying ? "
f fl \osir.
Th ? witness then said lie had an ac-
coon in the Bowery Savings bank of
less than $3,000 ; one of. the Seamen's
of less than $1,000 and one in the Dry
Dock of less than $ ? ,000. lie did not
F have any other accounts , but his wife
. might have. He knew that his wife
got 43,000 from Peterhead , Scotland.
Asked if his wife did not wear a
f diamond crosstalcen fromn a notorious
' 1 woman , Williams shouted passionate-

"I don't know. "
Wi'iiims declared that the presentment -
ment lie the grand jury against him
for allowing gambling houses near
the station house was false. He
sworethat he raided all such places
as he could find.
The'n Mr. Goff : called up a young
man and asked the inspector whether
he reco rrnized him.
. "I may have seen him before , but I
can't locate him , " was the reply.

"Well , your wardman did ? "
"No , he did not. "
"You have got rich on the proceeds

"If I were a rich man I would not

tions. "
"Did you say to a policeman that
you were not such a chump as to invest -
vest your money in brown stone
houses , where it was bound to come
out some time , but that you had your
money invested in good American
bonds ? '
"The person who says that is a liar ,
and you arc a Jiar ifyou say so , too. "
exclaimed Mr. 'Williams angrily.
Mr. Goff objected to this language ,
and Chairman Lexow tried to cairn
the witness.
Williams was next questioned as to
the dimensions of his yacht , and then
as to his wealth. He said lie was
worth about $35,000 or $40,000. He
had an account in the Amsterdam
bank. lie owned no bonds or securities -
ties , but had mining stock to the value
of $100. His Tenth street house was
not included in this estimate. Asked
about the charges made by J , Df.
Stern , editor of time Temperance Advocate -
vocate , that he neglected to close certain -
tain gambling houses , Williams said
that he had closed one joint on East
Fourteenth street
Then Mr. Goff turned to Captain
Schmittberger's evidence and asked :
"Schmittberger was your confidential
man ? "
"He was not ; I had no confidential
man. "
Williams denounced Schmittberger s
testimony against him as false and
said Schmittberger was a liar.
After a few more questions were
answered Williams was excused , and
Moritz Rosenfeld took the stand and
told of appealing to Williams for protection -
tection against mistreatment by po-
"But Williams says lie does not
know you , " interposed Mr. Goff.
"lie is a liar , " replied Rosenfeld.
"He threatened to throw me out of
the station and said , 'You damned
sheeny , killed Christ for thirty pieces
of silver , and I shall have nothing to
do with von. '
Two Bundred Leaders of the Party
1'lanning for 1590.
ST. Louis , Mo. , Dec. 29.-The conference -
ference of tine , national committee of
the People's party , with its invited
friends , began to-day at the Lindell
hotel in this city with an attendance
of something over 200 , including Mrs.
Mary E. Lease and many other noted
Kansas Populists.
The meeting was called to order by
National Chairman Taubeneck and
immediately proceeded to discuss the
advisability of holding sessions in se-
cret. The debate developed something -
thing of a tangle , out of which the
gathering pulled itself , after nearly
two hours' discussion , by resolving
itself into an informal convention ,
with Mr. Taubcneck in the chair , the
national committee proper being de-
dared adjourned until 2 p. m. Secretary -
tary Turner of the national. committee -
tee was made secretary of the confer-
Chairman Taubeneck then stated
the purpose of the conference , and ,
upon motion of General Weaver , the
chair was directed , after some aimless
debate , to appoint a committee of five
upon credentials and another ten
members upon address , the latter to
prepare a summary of the advice of
the conference.
The conference will consider finan-
land , transportation and other questions -
tions of the day and will arrange teat
at once begin the national campaign
of 1896. Coxcy of "Commonweal"
fame and his non-interest bearing
bond scheme were much in evidence :
General J. B. Weaver of Iowa was also
conspicuous. He proposes to present
resolutions for the free coinage of
gold and silver and the issuance of
paper money by the national government -
ment alone. He believes that the
next national platform of the party
should be devoted to that issue alone.
Those present in the conference
represent every section of the country -
try , from Tampa bay to Puget sound' ,
and from Boston to Galveston. Among
the number were General J. 13.
Weaver of Iowa , Henry R. Legate ,
Boston ; 11' . M. Howard , Fort Payne ,
Ala. , the Populist congressman from
that district ; S. II. Snider , Topeka ,
Ilan. ; S. W. Burnett , Big Springs ,
Texas ; E. Geary Brown , Brockton ,
Mass , ; A. Rozelle , Tarlcio , Mo. , cnair-
man of the state committee ; Solon C.
Thacer , Canton , Ohio ; W. B. Wright-
mire of Topeka , Ran. ; Ignatius Don-
nelly of Minneapolis ; W. S. Reece of
Alabama , who is contesting Mor-
gans seat in the senate ; H. E. Taube-
neck , chairman of the national executive -
tive committee , Marshall , ill. , and
Senator Stewart of Nevada.
Austro ifungary Likely to Follow the
Example of Germany.
WAsIIINGTON , The. 29.-The state
department is not yet at an end of
its troubles growing out of the repeal
of the reciprocity agreements made
under the terms of the McKinley
act , and more retaliation is looked for.
Spain has already imposed upon its
the maximum discriminating tariff ,
and Germany has prohibited our beef
and other great staples entry into the
empire. France is by no means disposed -
posed to accept the tsituation her
sugar trade is placed in by the sugar
duty , and how there arc strong
intimations that the new Austrian
minister , who has not yet even presented -
sented his credentials to the president -
dent , is charged to begin an attack
upon this same sugar duty almost fni
mediately , and , if coi cessions cannot
be secured , it is expected that Austro-
Ilungary probably will follow the example -
ample of Germany in retaliating upon
the United States.

How a Bishop Cut Wood.
1ave you ever heard of the great
Waiketin who built the cathedral at
Winchester , and how lie got the timber -
ber which is still in the roof of the
cathedral ? It is rather an odd story
and I will tell it to you as it was told
to me by the verger when I was at
Winchester-and told , indeed , while
the walked in the loft among the very
beams and rafters in question.
William the Conqueror was a king
who loved his trees , and would hardly -
ly part with any of his timber. When
the bishop was building the cathedral
lie came to the king and asked leave
to cut wood from the forest of Hemp- '
sane , to finish the noble work he had
carried on for many years.
"Wood from my forest of Hemp.
age ! Nay , that you cannot have , "
said Icing William.
"But , sire , how can I make a roof
for ' my cathedral without timber ?
Will your majesty grudge the trees
of the forest to the house of God ? '
said the bishop fearlessly.
The king did not want to yield , but
bishops in those day , were formidable -
able enemies , before whom many a
icing had trembled. ' 'lte bishop
urged his claims , and in ay have even
used threats , until at length Icing
'William said : "Go , the n , my lord
bishop , and take as many trees as
yott can fell in a day-but no more. "
The bishop went gladly , and coming
to his domain , which was like a little
kingdom , over which lie had absolute
power , he mustered his liegemen and
retainers for a grand wood-cutting j
expedition. At'-the bishop's palace
hundreds of men were daily fed , and
he could bring thousands in the field
in time of tear , for every one in
his see was subject to him-
"ill mint ] , body and estate. " IIe
must have summoned all his
subjects that day , for never
was such a wood-cutting known in
England. To the forest they went in
an army and chopped from the rising
of the sun till night descended , and
at time end of the day not a tree was
left standing in the wood. Not a
tree ? Yes , one'tvas kept sacred from
time marauding ax b eause under its
boughs St. Augustine had preached to
the Britons in days long gone by even
then. The Gospel Oak , as it was
called , still stands , protected by an
iron railing , the sole relic of the ancient -
cient forest which time bishop of Winchester -
chester laid low "for time house of
God , " 'r'rtily the bishop was a "mus-
cular Christian. " For all I know lie
laid aside his robes and miter and
wielded the ax that day himself. lie
was a firm liever in exercise , as another -
other tale will prove.
Time cathedral is not the only
monument to this great man. 'Pith
his enormnous revenues he founded
and built a college at Oxford , called
the "New College. " It was built
before America was discovered. IIe
also endowed the famous boys' school
at Winchester , and made many rules
whereby the safety and health of time
scholars were to be secured. One of
these was that the boys should walk
to the top of a high hill , some distance -
tance from the school , three times
every ( 'ay. There is a worthy pastry
cook living near the foot of this hill ,
wino until recently , when the rule
was abolished , used to go up the
steep path with trays of lies wares ,
andno doubt found a good market
among the tired little fellows. how
they put time walk in three times I
cannot imagine-think of it , girls and
boys , sometimes when you are disposed -
posed to grumble at errands around
the block.-Chicago in tet' Ocean.
A heu words on lfannor. ; .
Manner is a little hard to define. It
is somnethingto be felt , the expression
of a person's life and thought ; One
girl has a bright and vivacious manner -
ner , and another is calm and dignified.
One reminds you of the stars , another
of fireworks. Grandmamma's manner -
ner is gentle and tranquil , Cousin
Rob's is impulsive and hurried ; little
Miss Finch has a manner both fussy
and fidgety , and Laura Belle has the
manner of a queen. Time rude and
brusque young person makes her
companions uncomfortable. The tvcll-
bred person makes those about her
happy. No well-bred person has bad
manners , though such a person may
have a shy or awkward reserved maim-
net Tile latter may be one's misfortune -
fortune , time former is one' : fault. I
am glad that the girl's are returning
to the beautiful courtesy- bending
the knee and the body as well as the
) mead ; it is a much prettier and more
grace ful reverence than a mere
bow. Nothing about manner in a
young girl is so bewitching as defer.
ence , the paying attention to older
people , and showing kindness to
young ones , and setting everybody
at ease.
If you are in doubt how to behave
on any occasion , look at the peo7ie
about you , and see what most of
them do. The majority are generally
right There are one or two rules
always to be observed. You speak to
your hostess when you go to a recep
tion o' a patty , and you wish her
good-night when you leave. At the
table von wait until the la lr of the
house is seated before you .neat your-
self. You thank everyone who does
you a service. You are careful not to
interrupt conversation ; you tic not sit
older people right , even if you know ,
that they are mistaken ; you do not
try to get time best plade yourself , you
endeavor to give that to your friend.
In the street you do not attract observation -
vation by loud tallying or laughter. If
you are in a public conveyance , as a
car or a ferry-boat , for instance , yet'
yield your seat to the elderly lady or
the old gentleman , or the tired math-
er with a child in her arms.-Harper's
Young People.
Sheridan's Ride.
There is a tendency on the part of
young people , especially if they be of
a romantic temperament , to paint a
mental picture of their military
heroes in much the same colors as
those in which Scott painted the participants -
ticipants in the tournament in "Ivan-
hoe"-as tremendously stalwart ,
graceful , dashing and ornamental
As a matter of fact , generals are
much 111cc other men , and if they
happen to be elderlyare subjeetto the
ordinary infirmities of elderly men.
At a dinner party in an Eastern
city not long ago time host , who was a
close personal friend of General
Philip 11. Sheridan , told an amusing
story , which General Sheridan had
himself related to him.
The general was visiting a , friend
on the Massachusetts coast. Ills host
had some young daughters who had
never seen Sheridan , and whose idea
of Julia was gained chiefly from the
poem of "Slmeridau's Ride. "
't'hey pictured to themselves the
dashing cavalry general , who was of
course an accomplished horseman ;
and they took pains to provide for his
riding , while lie was 'their father's
guest , a pam'ticularly mettlesome
young horse. They were all curiosity
to meet the hero.
11'icn there arrived from the train
an elderly , gray-haired , red-faced ,
very short and decidedly thick-waisted
old gentleman , their disappointment
amounted almost to a shock. however -
ever the girls insisted that the geu-
eral should ride the horse ; and. he ,
being a gallant man , did not decline.
When he was mounted on the dashing
steed , they were in mortal terror lest
he should be thrown off.
lie stood time test , however , in some
fashion. Time next d .y the friend
who relates time story met him , and
found him limping painfully.
" 11'hat's the matter , general ? " Ime
"Oh , " said Sheridan , "I was over
at-syesterday , and those girls of
his asked me to ride with them.
There teas no getting out of it. , but
as I hadn't been on horseback for
more than a year , I'm sore all over ? "
It may have needed more actual
heroism on the generals part to accept -
cept the challenge of these equestrian -
trian young ladies than to ride into
the thick of the fight at Winchester.

A 1 raveler.
Far away in Holland a man was
digging in the rich , black soil. The
fields were broad and flat ; on one side
of them was a canal , and on time other
a great bank of earth to keep out the

and hard and round. It was not a

cleaned it carefully : rind tvrapned it in
paper. On the paper was printed its
name , but tlmis was a ] lard Dutch word
which you and I could not pronounce.
Then time little brown stranger began -
gan its travels. It was carried on
board a large ship : but through its
paper coat it could not see the neat
little villages along the way , with
their steep gables and tall wind mills ,
nor the queerly dressed boatmen at
the piers , nor a great many other
strange things.
All the way across the ocean time
little brown traveler was tossed and
thumped about inside a great mail
bag , but at last it landed safely. It
was taken to a store where seeds and
bulbs were sold ; here somebody
bought it and carried it ] lone , amid
put it in a tall blue glass full of
water. Then it was left in a dark
cellar for several weeks. Last of all
it ended its travels on the window
sill of grandmas cozy room , where it
could look in at the children playing
on the floor , or out at the snowflakes
dancing in the air.
"See , grandma' " cried time children ,
"it has a green cap. "
"See , grandma , " they said the next
day , "time green cap has turned into
two green leaves.
So every day grandma was called to
admire the little straneer.
