WASUINOEON , April 3. In the star
route trial to-day Doraoy was still on
the stand. The witness said that Her-
doll had written Hiss Sprlngoman a
number of very vicious letters , which
she had cpplod and had transmitted to
witnesi in Now Mexico. These letters
had been shown to Rsrdoll while ho
was la jail only for his information.
The witness had procured a situation
In the treasury department for
Miss Sprlngoman. Ho did not
threaten Rerdell with any
letters. The witness had Been
Gen. Garfield in the presence of Col.
Ingersoll , but the witness did not be
lle va the Rordoll had gone to MJ-
Yeogh and James when ho first heard
of it. Ho could not remember wheth
er ho had prepared any part of Her-
doll's retracting affidavit. When
asked whether ho had not Bought to
use the affidavit to secure the removal
of Jamea and MoVeagh , charging
them with burglary and other heinous
offdnses in 'seeking' to procure his
( Dorsey'a ) books and papers to be
stolen , Doroey defiantly declared
He ihad done every thing he could
to secure their removal , and that the
charges in the affidavit wore true and
that Governor Foator , of Ohio , had
told the president substantially the
same thing , and had said , those offi
cers oui ht to be removed. " The wit
ness' opinion was that if the prealdent
had lived another week he would have
followed that advice. He Indignantly
repelled the assumption that he had
aoncrltt any protection from Jamea and
MoVoagh , and asked .if the council
believed "that a pismire could hurt
an elephant. "

which is an elephant ?

As Indicated In thoao dltpitchi
a short tlmo ago , Secretary Folgoi hi

WASHINGTON , April 3. It is re
ported that while Meaarr. Carlisle and
Randall have been undecided aa to
which should have the apeakorship of
the next house , Mr. S. b , Cox , of
Now York , hai boon quietly at work ,
and to the surprise ot the politicians ,
enters the ring with the balance of
power already at his com *
mand. It appears that no lass than
seventeen votes are pledged from Now
York to their favorite statesman , nnd
nil but three in Ohio nre pronounced
"all rightTo swell this force It Ii
understood that Mr. Holman'a friend *
are counted upon , the objector from
Indiana himself having retired from
the contest various accretions to the
Cox phalanx nro promised from
the south , notably Tex a and
Missouri , and , with the execu
tion of lloseorana , the Pacific
elope la said to bo solid in his favor.
The Illinois delegation Is claimed by
Cox's frlonda after a vote for Sprlngor ,
except Mr. Morrlaun , who la reported
to be for Carlisle first and last. The
Irlah-Amerlciin mombera Robinson ,
Flnerty , and ono or two others are
counted as safe for Cox by the logic of
events , ho having vied with them
in pulling the caudal extremity
of the British lion for the
past ten yoara. Mr. Cxx'a frlonda
maintain that the apcakorahip should
go to New York this tiino by rights ,
because the state has not had the oflicu
for alxty-threa years , when by a coin
cidence it was held by an uncle of
their candidate. lu addition to ether
claims the Insist that the democratic
party should loao no opportunity to
fasten itself in the affections of the
people of that atato , for upon it will
probably hinge'tho .next presidential
election. Erory effort ahonld bo made
to tempt the democratic hosts to
valiant deeds by preliminary taste of
federal apolls at the handi of their
own party. They fully expect to fall
heir to the administration of the gov
ernment in 1884 , and they think that
with Mr. Cox in the chair much could
be done to bring about the doaired re
sult. In short , Mr. GJX is alleged to
have quite a "boom , " which has been
quietly nursed to dlgnlfidd proper *
t.ona. . *
