THE CHICAGO TRIBUNE: .TUESDAY,- APRIL 25, 1870., THE GRAND JURY. It Plunges into the Lightning* Hocl llusincßs. A SSOO Check Put Up for the Benefit of Certain Commissioners- Rumors as to the Object of All These Investigations. How Mr, Hcsing Trletl fo Get the City Printing for the “ Times.” His Eflbrts to Corrupt the Inoorruptl- bio Comifikey. Tbo Grand Jury cam® together yesterday morning apparently refreshed from a day’s cost. Mr. Storey, the,foremen, had his usual bundle of »• notes ” under his arm, and as bo ascooded the winding stairs mot a long list of witnesses, who, as they gazed upon him, wondered what they hod boon called for, and what it was that they gnaw that could possibly Interest iho Jury. The most Important witness called during the day was a gentleman by the name of who ou account of a - publication in these columns a mouth ago was supposed to koow something about a certain contract for tbo putting up of lightning rods on tbo county buildings. Notwithstanding the efforts of Mr. Btorey to keep the work of the Jury from Tub Tribune, it is enabled Cb give the substance of what ho said: He had some time ago con ceived the Idea that tbs tax-payors of the county wore in immiuout danger from lightning, and that unless all of the county buildings were pro- toclod by rods, tbo bordou of taxation would bo speedily tuoroasod. Comprehending tbo perii cos situation of tbo public, bo warned to furnish bia particular lightning-rod. To tbia eod ho saw uot Periolat, bat a court Bailiff by the name of Wllkorson. who told him that it would coat tnonoy to bo auccosaful. Ho appreciated tbo situation, gave him a certified check for SOOO to bo used, aud authorized him to use it. A fow days later be saw Commissioner McCaffrey, who had boon scon by Wilkoison in tbo meantime, and was told by him to make bia bid, leave it with Wll koraon, and he would work it through tbo Hoard. Bull later ho eaw McCaffrey and Bebmidtin conversation, aud heard the latter inquire who had put up tho SOOO. Later still McCaffrey manifested a groat Interest in bia tod and bid, and said that to get It through it would bo pecetsury to bare tbo matter in the bands of a certain committee, or to postpone any action In tbo matter until after election. McCaffrey tried to take the matter, subsequently, outoftbo hands of tbo Committee to which it bod been referred, but waa uoauccesslul for some reason or another. Finally bia bid failed, which ho thought was because some one had put up more money than ho bad. He had rchod upon Wllk orson to distribute his money, hat ho faded to do it effectually, ilia chock was returned to him.wbd tho work awarded to some one else. MR. WU.KEBSOM was next called. It having been understood in advance that bo bad declared that bo would '‘Jump tbo town, commit perjury, or cut bis threat," rather than give away bis friends— McCaffrey aud otUois of tbo Hoard—bia testimony did not amount to much. At least it was uot vory damaging. Notwithstanding bis reticence aud ludivpoeition to tes tify in tbo matter, it Is understood that it can bo proven by several parties that bo was in paseosmun of tbo SSOO check, that Mc- Caffrey know it, aud was figuring for bis share of tbo amount, and that Schmidt manifested bis inleiest m tbo matter by bolding a certain sam ple of rod in bis hand and advocating it when tbo proper Committee made tho award of tbo contract. Several other witnesses wero examined, but noue who gave the foreman of tbo Jury much comfort in Uis search for ground upon which to base indictments. Tbotr testimony related to tbiogs in general rather than auviblng particu lar, and covered a wide lango, Noue of thorn threw any light upon tbo Court-Houss question, but all reflected io one way or another upon I’criolat and tbo Couutv Board, two things which tbo Jury have learned to boliovo aro ono and tbo same. Those witnesses will' bo examined to day. and neb developments are promised, espe cially iu tbo construction of the now hospital Those outside of the Jury-room, aud who pride themselves that they know a thing or two, are inclined io take A STBAUOE VIEW of the whole investigation. It was intimated a fow days ago iu those columns that Mr. Storey, or some of his employes iu authority, wore liable to get mixed up iu county olfairs if tho investi* K aiiun was pushed to its legitimate end. Now, it is assorted that tho investigation was pushed upon Mr. Storey bv designing parties, among whom are some of ins employes, the object be ing to displace reriolat as the agent of tho County Board in engineering public frauds and steals, and to give the position to some ouo olso, —a gentleman from the South Town who re cently withdrew a hhol suit against the Times. Iu hie interest, it is said, certain overtures baro bocu made in tho last few days to certain county officials, who woio given to understand that whatever they could do to klit tho influence of I’eriolat and build up that of the South Town man would bo liherally paid for. Another |>ui( of the plan, it is said, is to KILL CO AN AS ADCUITECT, or at least as superintendent of the construction of the Court-House, and put in his place a pliant tool, tho idea being that ‘‘there ore millions In it.” to enjoy which it is necessary to got rid of Ponolat because of his greed, aud of Bgan be cause of his disposition to do right. Whether tlioto is anything m these statements or nut Hr. Storey will, of course, ascertain. am. HEfIINO AND TUB “TIMES," A reporter of tho SUiata-Zeitiuvi interviewed Mr. A. 0.

Mr. Hcalng. did we have a confers i- Hon about thla: dla not Chandler look attar tbe busi ness alone?” I replied, “Mr, Storey, we not only talked over the matter in your. library, hut even in your editorial-room, and every word of that which I have aald her* Is true." To which ho replied, aomewhat meekly. “ Well, I can only say that Ido not remember anything about it,” Theeo, said Mr. Iloslog, are the principal points In the examina tion, to which tbe Jury manifestly listened with great interest. iVhon I mentioned Storey’s name the Ant , ilmo they all drew thclrchaln nearer and pricked up their ears to order not to loae a word, and 1 could | road on their faces that the thing was exceedingly enjoyable to them. COHIBKET. A reporter asked Mr. Comiskoy In reference to the above statements yesterday. lie bad not road them, but upon their being road to him ho had nothing to say. His over anxiety to say nothing in reference to the subject resulted in his tearing his coat in his effort to got out of the presence of hta Interviewer. Inasmuch, how ever, as he has repeatedly confirmed the state ments, and others know of their truthfulness, hia reticence cannot bo conatrued into a denial. Xiiolr truth may explain, oo the other hand, why ho has not boon able to got before the Jury, though summoned several days ago. PBENDEirS STOUT. It i« corroborated t»y Hts Albany Chum* At.hawt, N. Y„ April 21.—The substance of the Interview with Matthew Blchardson, of Ibis city, referred to in Proudor’s statement alleging frauds In the United States Treasury Dcpart .mont, will appear io the Argus to-morrow, Tbo Argus says Ur. Richardson waa a clerk in Treas urer Bpiuoor's Bureau, entering upon his duties iu tbo year 1864. It was bis duty to keep the books of the department for the cancella tion of moneys or representatives of moueys, and bo was ono of tbo Committee through whoso hands such moneys passed. Fiank Jones was chief of bis division. Bonds and all forms of currency passed through the hands of this Committoo amounting to many millions of dollars. Ilictiardson states that in 1666 a package amounting to $10,600 was miss ing, and was SEVER DISCOVERED. A certificate stating tho fact tbat tho money bad boon lost was tiled. This certificate also u.ated that (bo money bad been canceled, wbfon ilicb ardsou says was not true.

Mr. Julian 9. Rumaoy called the mooting to order, and Mr. H. N. Mann acted aa Secretary. Mr. Rumsoy stated the object of the mooting, which was a gathering of the Citizens’ Club of the Twentieth Ward—not tbe Republican club— to hear what bad been done (hep&etyp&r. Sec retary Mann then road tub Fouxmism report : In new of Ute ramarkable mull* aeoompiUhea by tbla Society during tbft past year, U afford* mo great plMiure to present tUla tbo drat annual report or the ■ame.

I hayo written oot a partial history of this Bocialy. Being contloced Uut grpai fraud* bad been perpetrated at the fall electlona of 1874. when Jamea A. Kirk waa elected Alderman, but was counted out of bia poatbylho Ualcb House gang, ond anticipating the aamo doings at all coming election* If they were not put down, a meeting of the Twentieth Ward cltltena, Irrespective of party, was called and tbla Society organ!tad. Twenty-three cm ccra were elected, of whom ft part hava Barred the Club falihfuUy through all tbo diacouraglng, laborious work It bad to perform to reach aticoeaa previous to laat October, when it gained valuable aeoetalona to aomaof our boat and moat earnest dtl/ona. Somo 1 dropped off because they fancied tho work waa not popular; others became, though peraonally mfavor of a pure ballot, they were afraid It might hurt their party or tkdr political aspiration* to be ronnootea with such a movement. The Eiecutlro Committee bu from time to time filled vacancies, but It baa been bard work to find person* willing to spend their time continuously on this work. TUB FIBBT ELECTION which tbo Club participated was Id the memorable Oily Charter ©lection.” A large masa-mootlng waa organized at McCormick Hall, at coueldcrablo expense to tbo Club, to arouse tbo citizen! luto action, and to urge tbo other wards to organise and prevent the fraud* which wore aftenratiu perpetrated. Though tbo mooting waa well attended, ft did not accomplish the expected result. In this ward wo tried to have 'better Judges of election appointed, but without suc cess. On election day we appeared .early, but two of the Judges would not allow our challenger in aido for nearly two hours, during which time they managed matters in thdr own way No poll* Huts were kept, end ovary pao allowed to voto whether ho was challenged or not. Having been thwarted et the polls, wo determined to find out the law lu the matter. Tho lUstOmid Jury we found id been brought VosetUer with apudal reference „ur cue. but contrary to tbo manner proscribed by law. Bo w« bad tbe law propel/ enforced, and then went before ttio Grand Jury ana aocured Indictment* agalnsttwoof the Judges. Later we found the law ro* Hording epeclel elections was so loose end indefinite that It would be hard to secure a conviction without earning It up to tbo Supremo Court, and, os it would make no change in the election whichever way the do* cialon waa, wo concluded not to Incur tho great ox* penfo of testing this case. In thle connection our thanks are due to tho Uon, J, li. Doolittle lor services and legal odvlco rendered. rmon to tub election of last fall roorgaulwUon of tbo Club was effected. The Oppo .Uon party having Boeured tbo co-operation of tbo .orrunt element in oar ward, wo worked through the llcpuhUcan party organisation to secure Us overthrow A canvass of tlio ward was roadu, and each challenge .-orlded with a printed list of tbs volets In Mb pr Inct. Everything went on well except at the Fire tua Second Products, where tbs Corcoran gong wen. again at work. Jo Iho First Precinct lbs cbul'cngors were not admitted (111 baif-pist P, at which time all ballots were in tbo box. Challenges were disregard ed, our men forced from Uio polls, and proceeding* carried on lu a hlgh-bandad manner. In (bn Second Precinct tbo challenger was ad mitted, and everything went on quietly till 11 o’clock, when orders wore received that that would not do, aud our challenger was put out and not admitted till It o clock. Then uo ws* allowed lu and pgt out again when tbs Totlug was over, an they did pot want any one to watch while (bey wero counting tbo votes. After tbs election these Judges were indicted, but one, J, O. Orcon of tbo Second, waa noror found.
