Special Dispatch to The Chicago IVitrcjrwu Washington, D. C., April 22.—Mr. John X. Davenport returned to New York this afternoon on the train leaving here at half-paat 1 o'clock. He was before Mr. Caulfield's Committee abend an hour, bat made very little progress with his explanation of the money paid to him from tba Department of Justice. He bad scarcely en tered upon his connected story before members of the Committee began asking questions, some of them evidently for the purpose of obtaining information, others to enforce soma point against the witness, while in other cases the questions were of the bullying, brow beating kind sometimes heard in the police coarts from fourth-rate lawyers. Tba Committees as a whole saom disposed to ba fair, and to treat the subject with due consider* ation. For the most part it may be truthfully said that they have NO KNOWLEDGE OF THE SUBJECT about which they are asking questions. It be* cornea evident to>day thataome of the members, if they had over read the Election law, are nor* entirely Ignorant of its provisions. The in quiries in many instances, therefore, seemed like questions that might be propounded to am expert in mechanics by some persons that neven saw a machine. One or two illustrations will better explain the point. Davennort bad explained how. after the registration had closed, he had sent the Supervisors end Marshals to houses im the city to search out the people registered, and see if they actually lived at the places from which they had been recorded. There hod bees a good deal of testimony upon this point, wbiefal ended in the discovery by the Committeeman that the calling at residences to ascertain whether certain persons.registered were living at the numbers given was in accordance withi the law, and was necessary before warrants could be issued at all. Then the Committed found that M r. Davenport was entitled to a fe« of $1 each for tbo 1,200 warrants issued. BARNEY DISCOVERS SOMETHING. Here was another opening, into which th« acute Mr. Caulfield immediately rushed wifi* the utmost delicacy. Ho asked Hr. Davenport if it would not bo possible on the suppositions that bis office was filled by a dishonest mao, for, five or sir men to be eent around to register is various voting districts a great many times ia order that the Commissioner might issue his warrants, and get $1 apiece for them. Caul field was greatly surprised at Davenport's re* ply that a Chief Supervisor could nob carry on such a conspiracy as that without the* - absolute certainty of speedy detection. When it was explained that a large number of Super visors. both Republican and Democratic, would necessarily have to be in the conspiracy, Mr_ Caulfield declined to press the point that th» fraudulent registration was done m order that warrants of arrest might be issued for $1 * piece. Then Mr. Cochran, of Pennsylvania, ques tioned Davenport very sharply to know why hai bad not gone before the courts with bis] evidence concerning the fraudulent chano-| ter of the registry, and cause ths names which ho know were wrongfully oa* the fiat to be stricken off. Cochrane asked A GOOD MANY ROUNDABOUT QUESTIONS before coming down to the point, which reveaN ed the fact that he was demanding of Daven port to know why be bad not acted in the City; of New York in accordance with the Election*' laws of the State of Pennsylvania. Sir. Conger, the Republican member, whs watches the investigation closely, asks very feir questions. He is likely to have something to say before Davenport leaves the stand, huh seems in favor of giving bis Democratic col leagues a good deal of rope, of which they promise to make excellent use. Mr. Davenport's statement to-day began wisk an account of the fraudulent naturalization business, and be exhibited a large bundle of thte fraudulent papers which ha bad secured froo*? time to time, with the affidavits attached, mad*i by the holders, showing how they had come into; 'possession of tho papers. The Committee ii>— quired closely as to the method in which Daven-* port was paid for drawing these affidavits, and: found he had charged fees where he was en titled to, but had not drawn those which wera voluntarily offered without compensation. Wit- i ness explained more fully DOW FRAUDULENT REGISTRATIONS WEBB MAE^. persons giving as their 'residences the number** of stables, of lumber-yards, of vacant honseaw; etc. Thirtv men were registered from one smalt! house on Hudson street. He showed bow, by: his block-books, these frauds were detected anctr the voting prevented. The specimens of block—* books were carefully examined, and the tioo bow they were paid for was answered that 1 there was a bill in the Comptroller’s office foe.* extraordinary expenses, in which the last of these 3,000 small blank-books was charged. The methods by whicia frauds were prevented in 1372. were fully explained, and the issue of warrants foe the arrest of fraudulent voters was very sharply. inquired into. The same subject will be pur sued further at the next meeting. (To Uu Aueaated Preu,} Washington, D. C., April 22.—John I. port, the United States Supervisor of Election ab; New York, resumed his evidence today before*- the Committee on Expenditures of the Depart ment of Justice. Ho explained the frauds com mitted under the form of naturalization, and hia , method of discovering them. _ He was paid for the work of preoanng affidavits in several cases of fraud, as any other Supervisor was paid. He issued warrants in 1372 for 1.200 persons regis tered. beliering that they had no existance. Ad journed.
