The HOUBO Election Committed Con-
uldors His Contested Seat.
The Speaker's Friends , Flndlni ; That
He Wa * Defeated , .Started In to
Vote For Him llioNfxt Day
The Speaker Will Have to Hustle.
WASHINGTON , Jan. I ) . There was a full
meeting of tlio house committee on elections
to-J.iy to consider the Tliocbo-Carllslo con
tested ulcntlon caso. Contestant Thoebc was
jr.synt wltli his counsel , Messrs. Syplior nnil
Stever , of this city. No onu forinully repre
sented Mr. Carlisle. Mr. Sypher began tlio
presentation of Mr. Thoebu's ease , taking up the brluf already submitted , with thu
record , which assumes us a basts of thu cno
that tliu state election laws were violated In
the appointment of Judge * of election. Tills
Infraction of the law , he asserted , was sufll-
oient to warrant favorable consideration of
Mr. Thoebo's claim , but If the committee did
not agree in this view ho was prepared to
present evidence to satisfy them of his cli
ent's election. The record alone , ho said ,
would not the facts In the case , and It
was the duty of the committee to atoneo
send n sub-committee to the district to as
certain tlio facts while it could bo done. Al
ready Important papers had been destroyed ,
as he was prepared to provo by aflldavlts.
Taking up the details of the case , Mr. Sy-
pher Haul that on the night of election it
became apparent to thu Judges of elec
tion at Covlngton , Ky. , that Mr. Car
lisle had been defeated by more than
two thousand votes. At 1 o'clock they sent
for Carlisle and brought him In a carriage to
the Jiouso of a friend. After consulting with
Carlisle they telegraphed to have thu returns
of outside counties withhold.
"Who are 'they1 ! " Inquired Mr. Heard.
" 'Tliey { ' Why , friends of Carlisle , " replied
Hyphor. Continuing , ho said it was a fact
that the returns of six outlying counties we're
withheld for live days and Carlisle had pub
licly confessed that ho was defeated.
"You do not attach any Importance to this
point ! " suggested Mr. Heard.
"No , 1 Just mention it , " replied Sypher.
"Mr. Hayes , I think , confessed defeat
first , " said Heard.
"Yes , " replied Syplior , "and I think ho
ought to have stuck to it. " Syplior said that
in seven of the eight precincts of Carroll
county poll books were written , ' signed and
cot-titled as to ail names , in onu handwriting ,
and It was evident Unit all must have been
written after election by one man , as he
could not have been in all the precincts at
once on election day. Sypher next read
the iiflldnvitH of John J. Pierce in
support of his statements. In this paper
Pierce tells that the signatures on the poll
books were in onu hand "a peculiar hand"
whilu thu signatures of the election oilieers
to their oaths were in different handwriting.
Continuing his statement , counsel said that
Carlisle had Tailed of election through
neglect. In some precincts no tickets were
printed until ! l o'clock , and there was vir
tually no election held in some precincts. In
one case only the three judges voted twofer
for Carlisle and one for Thocbe. In Hoono
county -IN ) votes were cast on election day ,
but thu returns finally showed fli'iT votes. In
Carroll county there was practically no elec
tion. IIu could show that voters had failed
to go to the polls on election day , but when
they found that Carlisle had been defeated
they voted the next day. Not only was thin
the case in Carroll county , but also in every
onu of the outlying counties. Syplier
quoted from a statement by J. J. Hlukcly ,
who was , ho said , a prominent democrat and
nn attorney of Covlngton , to the effect that
twenty-four names appeared to bo added td
DUO of the poll books after the signatures of
the Judges bad been afllxed.
Continuing counsel said ho would stuU
Komething which ho had no aftlldavits tc
support , but which could bo proved by wit.
nesses. After tlio election seven of Carlisle's
friends met in conference at the federal
Imllding to endeavor to save Carlisle. They
hunt for an eighth gentleman , u prominenl
nnd honorable gentleman. Colonel IJ. W ,
Nelson. They told him Unit Carlisle was de
feated and they wanted him to confer with
them to dovlso some means of changing tin
result. "Thereupon , " said Sypher , "Colono
Nelson loft , declaring that if they were up tc
anything of that sort they musk count hm
out. Carlisle dare not contradict this gentle
man , " said Sypher. "Ho Is a democrat am ;
a Kentucky gentleman of as high standing a'
Carlihle. " Counsel next took up thu nflldavil
by contestant to thu etlcct that Carlisle's
friends had corrupted his ( Thoebo's ) nttor
noy and induced him to abandon tlio case am
tuippresK testimony. In tlio cour.soof n gen
era ! statement of thu transaction Mr. Syphci
Maid they had been given thu name of u mat
who had purchased the attorney ( Wood )
and If their informants told thu truth , thai
innn was a relative of Carlisle's. Thu price
named for Wood was JiTO. "Ho sold cheap , '
added counsel. Touching Carlisle's refusal
to Join him in taking testimony , Sypher re
marked : "Ho did not dare meet me. He
did not dare to go into that district and take
testimony. " Thocbo's aflldavit was
next read where ho accuses Wood of delay
ing thu taking of testimony and with telllni.
lilm ( Thoubo ) , there might bo money in il
for both of them if ho would withdraw tlu
contest. Sypher declared that there wa'
enough evidence in his brief to warrant tin
committee in seating his client , but If it dii
not think so , certainly there was at leas
suftlclent ground for thu reopening of tin
case. "If Carlisle-Is the honest man I thlnl
ho is , " said Sypher , l'ho will come down on
of his seat and ask for the appointment of :
committee to go to Kcntuc-ky and search tin
case. With what Is he , ( Carlisle ) , hero be
fore the committee ! Nothing ; not even eer
tllleatu of election. Eiiher liu knows that hi
lias no case , or hu is going to throw hansel
UIMHI the mercy of thu court. Ho has trillci
with his election or ho would have beei
elected , " In conclusion ho told the conimittci
that it was known to these interested thu
both of thu old parties had been coiuettlit | |
with the Industrial party both seeking id
votes for the next campaign and the com
jultteo could not afford to refuse to Invest !

the committee refused to reopen the case the
worklnguien would say : "Had Thoebo
been a democrat or a lawyer they
would have listened to him. " Let the
committee show the tolling millions either
that Thoebo wns elected or was not elected.
If the case was decided against him he Would
go back to his factory and work , but would
not quit voting.

Sypher presented a resolution that the

The Kentucky Contest.
WAMIINUTON. D. C. , Jan . 0. )
A largo crowd of'-congressmen and private
citizens hovered anrand the room of the house
committee on elections to-day to hear the ar
guments in thu contested election case of
rhoebo vs Carlisle , involving ttio scat of the
speaker. Intense Interest was manifested
and eagerness was evinced In the promised
sensation In the form of affidavits showing
.hat there were bold frauds perpetrated iu
: hu returns which gave Mr. Carlisle his scut.
Mr. Thocbe was present and followed J.
Hale Sypher in presenting his caso. Mr.
Thoebo is a mechanic mid was run against
Mr. Carlisle by the labor organizations of the
Sixth Kentucky district. Ho is probably
5 feet 10 inches In height , has steel eyes ,
light brown whiskers on the lower part
of his face , is very slender , probably
thirty-six years old , a bright fellow , full of
energy , and Is an honest-appearing man. Ho
did not make n speech in his own behalf , but
contented himself with plain statements of
facts and answers to Interrogatlvcs pro
pounded by members of the ; committee. He
declared that he was elected and that If it
had not been for the most outrageous frauds
the speaker would not have received his cer
tificate of election. He said that on the night
following the election the speaker admitted
his defeat by over two thousand majority and
was called out of his bed ut 1 o'clock by dem
ocratic strikers and friends , when u confer
ence was held and telegrams were scut
out asking that the returns In the
outsidu counties be withheld. It was
shown by the testimony that the returns
from many of the precincts were made and
certified in the same handwriting. Ho
charged the speaker with direct participa
tion in the frauds , ami did not , as heretofore
held by Mr. Carlisle's opponents , simply lay
the frauds to friends. Mr. Sypher made a
very able attack upon the speaker , charging
thu grossest fraud. Ho offered a resolution
asking for the reopening of the case , and
that a special committee be sent Into the dis
trict to take testimony , or that the case bo
reopened in such a way that the testimony
could betaken by the committee In Washing
ton ; also that time bo given for taking the
testimony and making a new case.
There is a great deal of talk to-night about
thu exposures made in connection with the
election of Speaker Carlisle , but it is gen
erally conceded that the party lines will bo
drawn and that all of the democrats on the
committee will report in favor of the speaker.
In fact , a democratic member of the commit
tee said to-night that tbo majority intended
to cut the hearing short when the committee
meets to-morrow and report for the eontcstoe.
A majority of the democrats on the committee
have been given chairmanships of committees
by the speaker , while the others of the
majority have been veil provided for in the
formation of the committees. It is probable
that democratic gratitude will be overlooked
In this case and the speaker will have the
benefit of reciprocity. It would not do , as a
party matter , to attach much gravity to this
case , and so the democrats will try to cut it
as short as possible. Judge Lymantho mem
ber from Council Hluffs , who is on the com
mittee , Avas present and is taking an import
ant part in tlio hearing.
Many members are much dissatisfied over
their committee assignments in
the house and the con.sciiueneo Is
Speaker Carlisle is coming in for a great deal
of abuse. The speaker delayed the announce
ment of his committees several days longer
than ho did at the opening of the last two
congresses , and longer than did Mr. Keifer ,
his predecessor , or Mr. Hundall , the speaker
before the latter , and as a result there is
dissatisfaction than has been shown for
fifteen years.
Hut while Archie Hliss , of New York , is
roaring mad because ho was not made chair
man of the Pacific railroads instead of Outh-
walte , of Ohio , Stnhlneckcr , of the same
state is very hot at the speaker because ho
was not given a place on appropriations and
others say they will not servo on committees
to which they were assigned , the Nebraska
members tire congnitulatingthem.selves upon
their good fortunes. They are all well
pleased and are much uioro fortunate than
thoaveiage. Mr. McShanu was assigned to
places on public buildings and grounds and
Indian affairs , both committees being import
ant ones and giving him an opportunity for
much needed local legislation. Mr. Dorsey
was placed on territories and private land
claims , both Influential committees in this
congress , the first being especially important
on account of the. proposition to create four
or five states out of the territories. Mr.
Laird was equally fortunate. Ho was as
signed to the committee on military affairs ,
where ho served in the last congress , and an
agriculture , both affording an opportunity to
legislate for his constituents.
It was a disappointment to his friends when
it became known that Mr. Fuller
would not bo given a place on the
ways and means. It is not true , however , as
reported , tnat ho was not recogniml for this
place because his views wcro too liberal on
the question of tariff revision to suit the
strict protectionist republicans , for Mr.
Fuller , although notns extreme as Mr. Kelly ,
of Pennsylvania , or Mr. MeKinley , of Ohio ,
is a protectionist Ho thinks , however , that
there can bo some good done by modifying
the present tariff laws , and this fact was pre
vented by some who wanted others given the
place. Mr. Fuller , however , was given a
position on the committee on Judiciary.which
is ono of the best in the fist. Thu other
lowans were provided for us follows : Wea
ver , chairman of patents nnd second on pri
vate land claims ; Holmes , Pacific railroads
and enrolled bills ; Henderson , appropria
tions ; Anderson , commerce nnd reform in the
civil service ; Conger , agriculture ; Hays , ac
counts nnd territories , and railroad and
canals ; Strublc , territories and pensions ;

Mr. StuUlnceker , of New York , who feels
so badly over not being given a place on thu
committee on appropriations , will have nn
opi > ortunity as chairman of the Insignificant
house committee on library to got even with
bouiebody. IIu cannot , however , open the
phials of his wrath upon Speaker Carlisle for
appointing him on the committee on library.
Mr. Stahlncckcr will play un important part
in the purchase of furniture for the new li

of the library commission , including the
members of thu senate and house committee
on library , the architect of the
building , etc. , had sketches mode
for a largo oil painting of themselves to
be placed in the now library building. When
the photographs and sketches for the paint
ing were made Mr , Stahlnccker was at the
tail end of the housu committee on library ,
and such men as Senators Merrill and
Vorhees , Secretary Liimar and Speaker
Carlisle were placed in the foreground ,
whllo the present chairman of the house
cominitlco on library was to bo seated in
the background. Mr. Stahlnecker Is
over six feet high , magnificently
proportioned , wears burnsido whiskers und
is referred to us the ii | > ell ( > of tha house ,
being of handsono phytiiquo und stylish In
dress. Ho was considerably cut by being
left out of tha oil painting und Mr. Carlisle
being put In his place and was not slow to
make liia complaints. Now that ho is chair
man of the house committee and will l.avo a
loud voice lu accepting or rejecting tUo
painting from the artist , It Is said that ho
proposes to have some revenge and steadily
refuse to accept the picture.

It was ascertained to-day that Secrclary
Liimar is sixty-three years old , Ho was
born in September , 18'-5. ! Tlio inquiry which
led to this discovery was brought about by
objection being made to his confirmation for

that ho was sixty-six years old and therefore
too ancient to assume the judicial ermine.
A letter has been received from Prof. George

There is a good deal of talk hero
over the action of Speaker Carlisle in ap
pointing Mr. Clements , of Georgia , to ttio
chairmanship of the committee on reform in
the civil service. Clements was a member of
the civil service committee in the last house.
Judge Seney's bll looking to the uncondi
tional repeal of the civil service law was re
ferred to that committee and within a very
short time an mlverso report was brought in
signed by every member of the committee
except Clements. Thu Georgian brought in
a minority report in which ho howled ubout
the Inequality of the civil service law and
said Unit it was enacted .solely in the interest
of keeping republicans in ofllco. This made
Clements solid with his hungry constituents
who were but on the hunt for loafs und
fishes. Now the question is asked , why has
Carlisle placed at the head of the civil ser-
uice committee a man who is not seriously
opposed to the enforcement of the civil sor-
viculawf Has thu administration changed
huso ? Has Grovcr Cleveland at last resolved
to east aside his mugwump allies and train
with the spoilsmen I At any rate there aru a
good many very mad mugwumps in Wash
