ANOTHER CHAPTER FROM BRADY.
WASHINGTON , March 16. Thin
morning General Brady again took the
witness stand , and was farther cross *
examined by Bliss. Bliss took up the
proceedings of the congress commit
tees and asked witness If hla state
ments then made were true. He as-
aortad the ? were.
Bliss Don't yon know yon made

Brady I regard granting the de
ficiency appropriation an approval.

Brady ( sharply ) That was enough.

Brady Yes , for more than enough
to mike up the deficiency.

Tiilloy , . sub-contractor , in August ,
1880 , that if the sub contract on Min

Bllis produced one of the price ,

Meriick expressed his i tsntion of
* howlng that these drafts for $1.250
each and 82,500 in money had boon
plaodd upon Brady's desk by a con
tractor for a corrupt pupose. . Hoar

either direct or cross examination.

witness had dragged hla whlto robes

The court Interrupted , and asked if
Merrlck held that , if the facts wore
proven as proposed , he could oblige
the defendant to criminate himself ,
Merrlok contended he coald , and
read from authorities in support of his
proposition. Having voluntarily gone
on the stand the defendant must run
his risk cf criminating himself. The
law did not contemplate force when
such witnesses were allowed to testify.
If they showed that en or about the
samn time ( that the indictments cov
ered ) witness was steeped in villainy ,
was it not competent evidence ?
Daring the delivery of Merrlck's
argument , which occupied half an hour
and wan characterized by bitterness
and scithlhg comments upon Brady ,
the latter sat with the greatest com
posure in the witness box , looking him
calmly in the face.
Without hearing the argument on
the part of the defense , court ad

NEW YORK , March 15. When
O'Djnovan Rossa was asked to-day
whether the explosion in London was
ansed by dynamite or was It an ac-
Idental explosion of gas , ho answered :
Wo oould not follow out our system
unless wo used dynamite , and that
what caused the explosion. There
was no accident about it. "
"Do yon think it was intended to
ostroy the building only , or kill those
within ? '
"It waa intended to do all the dam-
go possible , and it was done to show
England she had better give Ireland
or own parliament. England Is at
war with Ireland and Ireland should
)0 at war with England. "
Rossa showed the following dispatch
rom Boston :
"Congratulate you on news from Lon-
on this morning. I can collect money
iOW In Booton.
( Signed ; ) "Joiw D. DBISCOLL. "
Rossa said ho received to-day of-
ors of money , and ho can obtain all
hat's needed. In answer to the
inestlon as to what wonld next be
[ ono , ho showed a letter advising him
o publish in his paper a declaration
of war on England , signed by repre
sentative Irishmen. When that was
done It could not bo claimed their ac
tions were dishonorable. As for weap
ons , all available ones should be used ,

PEOIIIA , March 1C. In an interview

ho professed great exultation at tha

building at London , bnt did not favor
the moans employed , Ho prefers the

Dls idea Is to place two or three hun

England with a few barrels of petro

preconcerted signal make ono hundred
ooofligratlons in as many cities ,
spread terror and destruction through
