This may bo fun for tbe bridge-tenders, but to the hundreds of pedestrians who arc detained, and the drivers of Ihe teams de layed, it seems au outrage which tho Board of Public Works should remedy at once. It does not seem necessary that only tho vessels' rights should ho respected, out the public should gut a alight consideration also. death's doings.

SUBURBAN. JITPB PAKiC. The Board of Trustees of Hyde Park met yester* day; all present. The report of the late Village. Attorney, C. 11. Willett on the terms under which the publication of the Revised Ordinances of the Tillage vm being made was read, showing that Baslitt A Reed were now netting op and printing Ike book. fiOdepius in leather, 25Q copies In cloth, is paper, ai a cm* ot si-3hp« Jftfce, for long primer and $3.25 for brevier; the book would probably make about,3os pages noil coat about $l,lOO. Inasmuch as the snm charged by Haslltt A Reed appeared to ho higher than their bid, and for other reasons, the report of tho Into Attorney with the bld» of all tho publisher* wan re ferred to the Committee on Judiciary ana Assess- ID Tho remonstrance of a large number of cltlaens at Cornell against granting a saloon Ikcnae at that place was referred to the committee on Licensee. A resolution was then introduced Instructing the Sergcantof I’nllce to reduce the force of police to fifteen men by discharging five. The resolution was referred to the Committee of the Whole with power to act. Tho Hoard then proceeded to ballot for a person to perform the duties heretofore performed by tho Superintendent of Public Works. Fifteen ballots were taken without a result the principal com petitors being Beatie and McLennan. Finally, a motion to postpone further attempts to elect ©Ul cers was lost; then a motion to ballot for Village- Attorney was also lost; the same with a motion to ballot for Village Accountant A motion to ad journ wa* then carried, there being a dead-lock on tho Superinlendency, and each side being un willing toenter Into new complications until that matter was decided. The Hoard will meet In Committee of the Whole to-day to discuss the flnanelal status of the village. The report of the Village Treasurer showed that the bonded deot of the village amounted to $(329, • 000, and there was a floating Indebtedness of war rants and certificates of indebtedness which In sev eral cases exceeded the whole amount of funds to be expected from the collection of taxes this fall. In short, there arc several funds so overdrawn that, even if the taxes were all paid up now. there would not be sufficient money to pay all the warrants, etc., already Issued, to say nothing of the current expenses. This la notably tbo case with the Police Salary Fund and the Wotor Expense Fund. The same problem Is now before tbo Trustees of Hyde Park os that before the Common Council of Chi cago, namely: to provide money for current ex penses from a depleted Treasury when the taxes aro not likely to be forthcoming for about fifteen months; and the Hoard will endeavor to roach a satisfactory conclusion to-day. They have one advantage over the City Fathers. In that the bonded debt of the village has not yet reached the constl* tnllonal limit of 6 per cent upon Hie assessed valu ation of the village property, and they mar try tho virtue of selling a few more bonds, or they may venture npon the certlflcate-oMndchtcdncss plan. or _they may see what rigid economy enn do for tho village. Tho total floating Indebtedness of the village is about SOH. 000, of which about $lB, 000 Is chargeable to special funds, leaving some $60,000 to be drawn against tbe general fund. TILE BEST OF XILEIB. KIND. Tho “ Tribune’s " Observations Among Some of Onr loading Faint, Oil, and Glass Dealers, Tbe Celebrated “Fcnr-AcD” Paint—A Hourc Over a Century Old—Bobncr k Co M and James 1L Rice. ALEXANDER'S POOR-ACE PAINT. This celebrated article of merchandise has become famous far and wide owing, first, to Its unsurpassed usefulness for surfaces which re ceive & constant, steady wear; second, to tho energy and business shrewdness of Its proprie tors; and, lastly, on account of the singular ap propriateness of tho name It received at its christening. As the reader may naturally sup pose, the “Four-Acc” paint can “raise” any other quality of point in tbe market when applied to the particular use to which the is nest adapted. This paint Is manufactured by Messrs. E. 6. Alexander & Co., wbo are also dealers In creosote, boil ed oils, leads, varnishes, cut rubbers, saturated felt, and all kinds of roofing materials, their office being Boom 10 Palmer House, reached from the entresol. The “ Four-Ace " paint is made from creosote, boiled oils, leads, varnishes, gums, rub ber, etc. It waa flrstin&nufactnredln 18. VJ. After flvs years of use in every conceivable form, and tho addition of several valuable improvements which time and experiments suggested, it waa adjudged terfeetby the beet Judges In the laud; and this is bo same paint which B. S. Alexander * Co. are making ana selling to-day in enormous quantities. Its greatest points of recommendation are cheapness ana durability. Us manufacturers will guarantee every gallon of it, and they challenge the world to produce its equal. Its power of penetration is simply wonderful. It searches out every fibre of canvas to which It Is applied, and penetrates every pore of wood. Thousands will testify to its mar velous durability. After a steady and severe use for eighteen yean It has preserved its body and color, giving tue most complete satisfaction, as is amply attested, not only by numerous testimonials from leading railroad men and builders of the country, butoy largely increased orders annually. It is invaluable to ebip-buildcra fur painting the hulls of vessels both inside and out. For nse on bridges or ears, house-roofs, tin or shingles, or on surfaces through which it is desirable to prevent the passage of moisture, there is no paint that comes anywhere near to the 14 Four-Acc." C. 7. BATNOLDS * CO. It may seem strange to the reader, bat It is a fact, nevertheless, that the house above mentioned is older than the Government of the United States. One hundred and six years ago, way hack in 1770, this house began business at the corner of Fletcher and Water streets. New York, it then being under the proprietorship of W. AG. Post. Later. Messrs. C. T. Reynolds A Co. succeeded to the business, and over since that time it has been regarded as one of the most prominent, extensive, and enterpris ing business establishments In America. The Chi cago branch, located at No. 21 Lake street, is in charge of Ur. C. U. Cutler, resident partner, and Is the only paint and color house In the West rep resenting a strictly manufacturing paint and .olor establishment. It Is fitted out with every accessory to the traue, and in such quantities as to be able to supply even an extraor dinary demand. The amount of paints and oils which the Chicago house sella is euormous. their railroad trade being particularly heavy. Wlthis the seven years the Chicago branch has been estab lished, they have worked up a business in the West not exceeded by the whoU trade of any other house in their line. This Is probably duo to the fact that their stock is always complete, which enables them to execute orders promptly and at their lowest fac tory rates, the current cost of transportation only being added. LAMPS AND GLASS NOVELTIBa. Probably the most extensive diealeni in this clam of goods In Chicago are' Metiers. George Bohnvr A Co., Nos. S 3 and 35 Wabash avenue, who do aver? large Jobbing business. Besides their large stock of lamps and glass goods, they arc the exclusive general agents for the celebrated National Jelly Tumbler, and deal also In Mason’s fruit-jam, und all other varieties. And right here we want to prophesy that there will be a scarcity of fruit-jars Ibis coming summer and fall, for never before has the prospect forsuch an abundant crop of all kinds of fruits been so fluttering.

THE CHICAGO TRIBUNE: WEDNESDAY. MAY 24, l»<b. LIGHTNING STRIKES. The Criminal Court Grand Jury Did an Excellent Day's Work Yesterday. It Brought in Indictments Against Clem ens F. Feriolat and George 8. Kimberly, Charging Thera with Haying Conspired and Robbed tbo I’eoplo of sl*o,ooo. Bailed by Bammor Politicians in SIO,OOO Each, They Escape Jail for a While. PEUIOIiAT AND KIMBERIjY. K OOOI> DAT’B WORK. When the Grand Jury for the April term of the Criminal Court adjourned and returned simply a “moral Indictment,” tbo county officials and contractors were happy. It was true that somo reflections had been heaped npon them, but, accustomed as they hod been to un frlcudly criticism and imputations of tho most disreputable character, they took occasion to rejoleo that they had escaped as easily as they had. They had feasted on tho Idea that the public print was powerless to harm them, that nobody believed what was printed, and altogether that they had been vindicated from the fact that no Indictments bad been found. Mo small part of their pleasure ut the result came from skill they Inul displayed In covering their tracks, which mode them defiant In spirit, and whipped their consciences Into tho most humble servitude to tbeir depraved and stealthy tastes. They chuckled together, congratulated one another, aud were exceedingly rejoiced. The future had riches In store for them that none could snatch from their grasp. Where cents bad been coined, dollars prom ised to take their place, and their dream was one of pure delight. Having escaped being caught la their wholesale thievery, all that remained to be done was to double their robberies, and at the same time treble their care in selecting Grand Jurors wbo would act the part of theirsup pliant tools. It was a fatal moment when the Clerk of the Criminal Court, however, neglected to send In the order of Ihe Court In time for the selecting of the Grand Jury for the May term. No one suffered more from this mistake or omission than tho Coun ty Board, when its several members realise the plight It left them in. They could not remedy the oversight with curses, notwithstanding their ca pacity in that direction, but they made the best of the situation, believing that, since they had but recently made the Sheriff a handsome present from the public treasury by raising his al lowance for dieting prisoners, that he would ho true to them and theirlnterest In choosing a Jnry. And he doubtless would have afforded them the greatest satisfaction, had It not been that he under stood self-preservation to bo tho first law of nature, and that his Interests slightly conflicted with the Interests of his brother officials. The result of the spring election had made an impression upon bis car, and be saw nothing in It more distinctly than tho fact that the DAT OP HUMMER RULB In the city had passed. And again, ho was not In sensible to the fact that be had oecn more or less identified with the lower element of tho communi ty, and that hie selection of Jurors for that reason bad become distasteful and made him opprobrious to a large class. Acting upon these thoughts he selected Ills Grand Jury for the May term from the higher walks of life, in which, without stopping to question his purpose, he did a good work. His selection astonished the County Board, but they fell back upon their post clary In escaping any serious trouble at tbe hands or Juries, and feeling sure that the good sense of the now Jury would dic tate tbe impropriety of their entering Into any further investigations of official corruption, they were consoled, and inclined to forgive tbe Sheriff for his selfishness. And this consolation would have lasted bad it not been wrested from them by the special charge to tho Jury by Judge Moore a few days later, urging them to take tip tho work of the former Jury just where It was left off, which advice has boon taken, it appears, and not without its result Every day since it assembled some damaging revelations have been made, reflecting npon most every one connected with the management of county affairs. Proof of bribery and corruption have rolled In vol untarily from many sources, until to find an offi cial whose reputation has not in some way been smirched thereby Is an exception. What tho for mer Jury was enabled to Intimate, this has been able to develop to such an extent as to show that the public ore uclng BQAMBFULLT RORBBD by an disgraceful a band of robbers, in the guise of Entile representatives, as ever went un ung. Where the former lory could censure contractors, this has been able to demonstrate by at least one Indictment already that they have been little Icm Ilian public thieves, and that the County Board winked at their conduct, if U has not enjoyed a lion's share of their plunder. The Eoor, tnulmed, and insane wards of the county ave suffered at their hands alike with tho public, and while robbed by the Board in quality, have been doubly rubbed by the contractors and their keepers in the quantity of their food and clothing. Tno first effective work of the Jury in this lino was given to the public yesterday morning by the return into court of a Joint indictment against tho notorious Clemens F. Pcrlolat, a man who has for years been nurtured by the County Board, and the equally notorious scamp W. 8. Kimberly, Warden of the Insane Asylum, who baa also been much loved for his rascality, and much befriended because of bis pliable character. The indictment, as predicted in these columns several days ago, is forconspiracy to defraud, and is based upon the testimony of J. 11. Foreyth, J. O. Beardsley,tUcrmaon Lleb, C. 11. Carpenter, and .lohn Comiskcy. When presented it created no little surprise in certain circles. Its Importance was RBADILT RECOGNIZED by tbe way In which it was received and tbe extra ordinary care given to maintain Us privacy. It had been prepared in the dead boar of night, when re porters are sap]>osed to be slumbering, and bad been presented hastily from fear that some one would see Uln advance of the Court. In fact, it became known that tho indicted parties would hlo away to a more cpngenlal clime, and It was drawn and presented even before tho examination of wit nesses had been completed. It reads as follows, omitting the second count, which is similar to tbe first, except that the one is baaed on (he statutes of lbs dtata aud the other on the common law: TUB INDICTMENT. Slate of lUXnoit, Cook County, tt. Of tbe May term of the Criminal Court of Cook County, in said county and State, in tbe year of our Lord 1H73: Tbe Grand Jurors chosen, selected, and sworn in and lor tbe County of Cook, ill the Slate of Illinois, in the name and oy tbe authority of the people of the Stale of Illinois, upon their oaths present that George B.

CuAULEa IL llrbd, Bute’s Attorney. AHIIBUTEU. Aa eoon as the document hud been presented a capias for the arrest of the parties was placed In the bands of Depaty-Bherifta Hutchinson and O'Neil, with orders to bring tho parties Into Court at ouco. The former started for Perlolut, and the (attcr for Kimberly, at the Insane Asylum. Pcrlolat was found after a long search at hie store on Atlanta street, and at the time was fill ing sums orders fur groceries for his friends In tho County Hoard. Ue was surprised at being arrest ed, and was curious to know what for. Ills curi osity waa but partially satisfied,—enough to assure him that ho would have to furnish ball or go to I all The Sheriff was Inclined to accommodate Ini. and went with him to secure bondsmen. Aid. White was the first man ho sought, “birds of u feather,** etc., and bis second »n*n was P. J. Sexton, a fellow contractor, who has often been heard of of lutein connection with “Jobs.” The party reached the Court about 1 o'clock, Perio lat jaded and excited, and bis followers in appar ently the same condition. Their presence was an nounced to the Court by the bute's-Attorney, who asked that their BAIL UB VIXBD. The Court—What U theoffensut Mr. Ueed—inspiring to defraud, your Honor. Thu prisoner baa been Indicted by the present Jury along with another party who baa nut yet been ar> W The*Court—Will $6,000 be sufficient ball? Mr. Heed— The amount involved in the Indict* meat Is $30,000, and the penalty for the offense U xml more than three years In the Penitentiary, or a line not less than SI,OOO. The Court—Letthe ball be fixed at SIO,OOO. , Mr. Jleed—Very well. No one in the audience gave more attention to the dialogue than the prisoner. Especially was he attentive to the Penitentiary portion of It, for no one knew his deserts half as well as himself, and this made him wriggle in his aeat and take a far more gloomy view of the situation than ever before. Ilia bond was finally signed, and he was again a free man fox tna time being. XUfBBBLT TO TUB FKOHT. Abvnt ymm uinJdA ini® the County Ruthllng. The first mao he songhlwns Pcrlolat as bondsman, not knowing at the tlm* that he had been Indicted. Pcrlolat was not long In olnlng him. and he was closely followed by 'ommlssloner Schmidt and cx-Cominlssloner Craw ford. The other official* had tccnlcd the trouble from afar off. and wore nowhere to be found. The Court was sent for, and at 0 o'clock ms bond in : 110,000 bad been prepared and accented, Thomas Nelson, the Connly Painter. 8. H. Ilurham, and Edward Goodman being tho signers. The proof against those parlies Is clear and beyond quibble. It shows that a conspiracy has existed for sctcfal yean between Pcnolot, Kimberly and the “Ring" In the County Hoard to defraud the comity. Tho plan has been for 1 erlo lat to have the furnishing of goods to the Insane Asylum and Poor-House, for Kimberly to receive them, and tho ••Ring" has carried It out admira bly. Tho way the stealing was accomplished was: Kimberly would make a requisition for five barrels of sugar, say. and Pcrlolat would furnish one, and the county would pay for five, Kimberly acknowledg ing the receipt of live, and Pcrlolat making affidavit that he sent five. This was the rule with Ml sup plies. and, as stated In the Indictment, $30,000 has been proven to HAYS tIBBN STOLEN In this way, which covers a very small proportion of the actual steal. In the last two months, for Instance, It has been proved that SO,OOO has been stolen In this way, which has. no doubt been faclll tated by the presence of MrCoffrey at the brad of the Committee on Public Charities, n position to which ho was appointed for that pnrpose, doubt less. The proof goes further, 100. and shows that the SOO,OOO has been divided equally, between the three parties to the conspiracy, Perlo lat, Kimberly, and the “Hlng," even to pointing out who mane the division and paid the money over. Further than this, the proof shows that certain members of the Hoard have drawn their family supplies from Pcrlolnl's store with great regularity, and Uiat others have not been at all backward Is asking advances In cash from him, for Instance McCaffrey, all of which pul together will exhibit on the trial a rottenness In Cook County af fair* that few have been ready to believe. The members of the Hoard, or such as could be seen yesterday. It Is almost needless to say, were worked «p .to a frenxy. The Intimations that came to them from various sources during the day that several of them would be Indicted In the next few days gave them very llltln comfort. They know their sins, and, slnco Pcrlolat bad been cotight, felt that It would bo their turn next. “WILL PBRIOLAT SQUEAL I” Inquired one. to which another answered, ** It Is toomlo; the squealing bos already been done—wo must go with Pcrlolat, H which Is doubtless true In the case of McCaffrey, Holden, and Johnson, with the probability that the list will be extended. Mr. Holden denied emphatically that he had ever had any dealings with Pcrlolat, or that ho bad ever got tea any goods from bla store, which may all bo true or may not. The evidence before tho Jury Is understood, however, to conflict with his state ment, going to show that he has been tho wiliest of the wily, and while ho Ims taken nothlngfrom Perlolat’s store has given that much abused Individual the trouble to curt goods to the Insane Asylum, and then taken the trouble him self to haul them back, and to hifl house la a car riage the county paid the hire of. These goods are said to consist of chests of tea, cases of wine, and other delicacies of tho season. Mr. Holden s record In the Board would also seem to raise a reasonable doubt of his entire Innocence. When he came Into the Board, a year and a half ago, the first discovery he made was that Pcrlolat had fleeced the county out of about $12,000 In famish ing supplies, ami reported to the Board accord ingly. Through tho Instrumentality of McCaffrey the report was kept from tho records, and later Mr. Holden changed his tactics entirely and became a supporter and advocate of Pcrlolat, WHAT Tflß INDICTED BAT, A TmnDHB reporter met the Bean Boss yesterday afternoon, after the newe of hli indictment had fallen anon him. His general air was that of de fiance, and what ho had to say embraced a denial of everything charged against him. “They had to Indict somebody, yon know, and they got me. They Imre been after mo for some time. The public wore after somebody, it didn’t matter much who, and the Grand Jury fell in with the Imo and cry and scooped me.” “On whoso testimony or by who*c Inflncnce do yon think tbo indictment was bronght »” auked the d of a Beardsley cooked op Ails story, bnt I'll vindicate myself yol, d—n him. They will find that they’ve cot the wrong man this lime, and I ain’t afraid of all their Investigations. But while they're about thin business, It's d—d funny to me why they didn't get For* syth, too. Why, d—n It, they might have stretched tho etory lust enough to bring In the oldman—just os easily as they did to Indict me. But I'll prove my innocence yet, end show these nice Grand Jurors that they can't pick up any man and Indict him Just to please tho popular clamor. It won’t work. ” Tho above, with the exception of a few blaspho* mica not recorded, is a pretty fair index of Ferlo lat’s mental condition after the bolt of Grand Jnry lightning had struck him. Kimberly had nothing to say, except that he was as Innocent as an unborn babe, all of which bo could prove by I’crlolat. A LOOK AHEAD. The Jury will continue its Investigations to-doy, and it Is givon out by one of tho members that It may be necessary to hold night sessions to com plete the work laid out during the term. Thu ex- Eerts appointed to examine the hospital work and bgan’s record Is preparing their report,and will ho ready to submit the same to-morrow. KIMBERLY’S VICTIMS. WHAT ONE OF THEM RELATED XBStBKDAT. Bhe was a loug, lean, aud masculine-featured female, with a pale countenance, and long, bony Angers. Bbo entered tho rcportorial sanctum as the clock pointed to 11:30 a. m. “Is the city editor Ini ” Inquired she. Aa one of tho corps raised his bend he saw that she bad something of a remarkably determined look about her, and evinced a spirit of anxiety, os If she had a hor rible tale to unfold. Her dress was scant hut clean. Her aun-boauct was of blue hickory cloth; her drees, a plain 10- cent calico. Over her shoulders was thrown a little red and white atrlpcd breakfast shawl. Her feet were encased in moccasins of No. 0 size that had grown to a ripe old age. Thu sides were nearly annihilated, and as for sole, there was but tittle under them. She carried her scanty wealth In a dilapidated flour-bag. It consisted of a pocket-handkerchief and a few other little arti cles. Having been shown to the city editor, she sat down her baggage, and, after rummaging through It awlle.sho brought forth a number of little bottles and several bundles. Bho then went on to say that her name was Mary Ann Bo lane. She had walked down from the Foor-Honso at Jefferson yesterday morning. She bad been In the consumption ward, wheru the at tendant, a female named Mrs. Flynn, had most woefully abased her, She had been an lumato there for aevcral months. She then opened the Backagcs, and took the paper from around the allies. They were the meals she had bcun given the day before,—breakfast, dinner, and tea. Ye gods I what faro I One bottle contained a VILLAINOUS DECOCTION, which she called bean-soup. It was actually rot ten and stinking, and was the color of the gan grenous fluid which a wound emits. And then the tea,—lt has been spoken of in these columns be fore. and needs no further description. For such tea the county has been paying from 05 to K 5 cents a pound. The coffee was more than abominable. It was apparently a mixture of scraps of burned rye and uirt. Intermingled with a little chlccory. The molasses was the dirtiest, blackest slush Imaginable. Then there was bread. It was made of rotten flour, and sour and stinking. The meat was simply reeking. And such the food that sick B arsons are forced to eat, because God hassconrged lem with poverty. The women is said to bu insane. Insane she may be, but she spoke ra tionally enongb In the office of TiibTiuuund. The character she gave the nurses whom Kimberly em ploys, and this language they use towards the unfortunates, show them to i>e as venal and corrupt us the thieves who put them In place. The physicians, too, she said, were low, cunning, and abusive. Hbo may be crazy, but there Is a method In her madness, which, hacked up as It Is with evidence strung as Holy Writ, docs not pre vent her from thoroughly appreciating good treat ment, and rebelling at the reverse. After sbe had fully exhibited her alimentary curiosities to Tub Tuluukb reporter, she packed up and started for the Grand Jury roam. MASONIC. Fifty Msßi Annual gossloo of tb« Grand Lidgs of Indiana.

A Careful llovlow of the Testi mony on Doth Sides. The Court Will Instruct tho Jury This Morning. The Defendant in Good Spirits and Hope ful of an Acquittal. A Verdict of Not Oulltjr lictnrncd In tho Jonns Case at Mlliraukcc. DANIEL VV. MUNN. CLOSING FOK THE OOVHItNMENT. A goodly-sized audience wtw present In tho llnlted StatM Court-room yesterday morning to hear Mr. Ayer’s closing speech in the Munn trial. Tho defendant was attended only by his counsel, Mr. Dow, the Court explaining that Col. Ingcrsoll had been colled home ou account of the death of his father-in-law, and that Judge Doolittle had gone to Madison, WU., on legal business requiring bis Immediate presence. The defendant maintained his usual quiet and dlgnllled appearance, but at times leaned over to Mr. Dow and objected to what were con sidered ns misstatements of tho evidence, and* tho lugging in of matter not in the ease, lie showed no trepidation, and when the Court ad journed shook hands with a Tribune reporter, and, in answer to a question, sold ho was feeling all right. Mr. Ayer began by saying that tho jury hod been told In eloquent words at the very first that no more Important ease hod ever been be fore this Court. Tills theme had been repeated, ami he acknowledged Its tnitb. It was indeed a most important trial. Dat in what particular was it more than usually important. Its importance was not specially augmented by the degree of pun ishment which might await tbs defendant It was a question whether the people would demand a iilgber standard of public Integrity, and whether tho jnry would signify by their verdict whether they would vindicate a man honored by a place of high public trust who had sold his conscience for money, bis honor for bribes. Mr. Ayer said It had come to be a question os to whether virtue really existed; whether there was manliness enough in this country of ours to apply an effectual remedy for this tremendous evil, lie was glad to say that this question was beginning to be answered all over tho country in the affirmative, and before long this time of shameless proltlgacy would have been ended. Ono of the most shameful instances of pnbllc venality was revealed in this case. There were two indictments in the case, bat they were so simi lar that an acquittal or conviction In the present ono would settle the metier as far as the defendant was concerned. It was not necessary to prove that the conspiracy was actually carried nut by tho defendant, although that bad been shown. That concert of will amounted to a criminal con spiracy, and Mann was guilty whether bo was In strumental In organizing at tne outset or became a partaker In it by joining tho others, or anyone of thoothers, while Itwasbclngoxccutcd. Mr. Ayer then traced the history of tho ORGANIZATION OP TUB RING, .remarking that It made very little difference ’ whether Itchm seduced Heslng or Ilcsing ravished Kehm. It was evident that both were In tho ring, and that Munn afterwards cams In. Tho amount of revenue of which the Government was actually defrauded could neverbe octusliy ascertained. Tlie one firm of Dickinson, Leach & Co., during a period of thirty-ono months, carrying on the business In the least exten sive scale. probably stole $107,812.50. Nearly all the revenue officers were In with tho whisky thieves. This had Indeed been proved by parties to the fraud, but nobody presumed to question that there was a ring, or tho general truth of their statements. What better nse could be made of them than to have them come in and fileud guilty and reveal their guilty associates! Tho lovernmeot attorneys bad been accnsed of forming a partnership with thieves. Was tho charge true? Was It not Munn who was proved to have neen in partnership with thieves! Accepting tbo evidence of co-cunsplrators was no now proceeding. It was in voguo In every civilized country, and in no other way could the proofs of a conspiracy be brought out. Without this mode of proceeding, tho Investigations would have stopped last fall. Tho Instructions to tho District Attorney were to probe tho conspiracy to the’bottom, and to screen nobody. lie had not the choice of hla witnesses. He hud been compelled to lake them, and they were Mann's friends. In weighing the evidence of accomplices, it was necessary (tint tho Jury act with due caution. If tbojury believed It to be true, they conld convict. The amount of corrob oration depended npon the nature of the crime, and it was not necessary that tho witnesses bo cor roborated in every material point. The manner of the witness, the futrlnsic value of the testimony, and tho consistency of Its component porta, went towards inspiring belief in the minds or a Jury. It had been clearly shown that a man not con nected with tho Revenue Department controlled revenue matters In this city for upwards of two years. The Collector's office, tho distillers, the Gaugers and Storekeepers, and almost everybody eUo, ACKNOWLEDGED 1118 POWER. The whole sum this man Rehm received for pro tecting the distillers amounted to obont $120,000. It was absurd to suppose Rcbm could have carried on this course of stealing without the knowledge and participation of the higher officers; and It was absurd to suppose they participated without being paid for it. The question arose as to now Rohm disposed of all this money. According to his testimony, bo paid oat $30,000 to Irvin, SO,OOO or SB.OOO to Hoyt, from SIO,OOO to sl7, - 000 to Collector Wadsworth, and paid Bridges, for himself and Munn, $40,000. The arrangement with Mann was made curly In the conspiracy, and at the very wise suggestion of Collector Irvin. He was also a man of nigh and unsullied character, like Munn, and ho could not afford to take the chances without an understanding with the Super visor. Rehm mast have understood the necessity of having Munn in the Ring, lust as much as he understood the necessity for having the Gaugers and Storekeepers In thu Ring. Had Itubm any conceivable motive to falsely accuse the defendant? Hu had no motive. He was not Munn's enemy, but rather his friend. He bad even once tried to get him the Commission* crshlp. There was no motive like enmity. The only chance of any leniency from (he Court lay In hla telling the exact troth. Would he tramp up a etory against snch a man (hat could bo exploded, ana thus destroy all his chances of leniency? Moreover, the story hung to gether. Neither was It a new one, but was known two years ago, and was a matter of talk at that time among certain In the Ring. When Fredericks told Rehm that Munn had been at their distillery and there would bo trouble. Rehm smiled slgnitlcantly. as much ss to Imply that it was all right, lie did not openly disclose the facts to everybody, but according to lieslug he once pro posed to make MUNN THE COMMISSIONER, and then they could “run the country.” This was another circumstance going to show that Rehm and Munn understood each other. During all this period spirits were selling for less than their coet, and yet Munn made no investigations. It was urged that this was the same state of things now, nut It must be remembered that the price of the materials was less now than then. The mere market price alone proved nothing. Was it to bo believed that Munn was simply negligent during all this time? All he need bavo done to do ted these frauds would have been to post a single nun to watch one of these distilleries for twenty four hours. Or, he could have gone to the railroad offices and found out the shipments from the dif ferent distilleries. Why did be not know this? It was an Insult to his Intelligence, to the Intelligence of the Court and Jury, to suppose Munn did not know what was going on. According to tbo con versation with Conklin, he know all about the steals. Bnt It hud been said that Conk lin’s testimony had* been broken down by Dr. Osgood. The latter said ho met Munn with Conklin and Bridges in Munn’s office, and said, ‘'Well, Munn, you've gut bounced,” whereupon Conklin broke In with, “Yes, Mann, you haven't made a single cent. Yon have bad opportunities, and I have pointed them out to you, but you wore too d—d pious." It did not look rcasonablu tlut Conklin should have betrayed himself before Osgood, but, accepting It as true, was it not damning evidence against Mann (or retaining Conklin and never report ing him to Washington ? It did not ap pear that Munn did the slightest thing to romove dishonest cum from office Whenever irregularities came to light be covered them up instead of reporting them. Instead of sus pending Bchrlckcl (rum duly, ha said it was all right as faros he was concerned, but It wouldn’t look well If anybody came from Washington. Why did be not seize the goods at Mason's ? Ho said that bo ought to seize them, but took Mason’s sim ple statement that IT WAS ALL RIOIIT. Tbe defense had made a point about nuoaeirs stop ping a load of crooked goods oa tho way until Munn got sway from Mason's rectifying bouse, seeking thereby to show that Bussell believed Mann was honest and would cause him trouble. There was , nothing In this specious pics. Tbe truth was that Hebm had no direct dealings with Bussell, had never received a cent directly from bitu but through Parker U. Mason, and hod never babbled to cither of them tbe fact that Munn was lo tho ring. There wua no doubt that Munn determined to levy a special assessment on lioello & Junker, and to prevent that they paid him Uie 000. This was another occasion when an irregularity was uoi reported, and the explanation accepted from those In the illng that evertbiug was all Ayer next referred to tbe Oolsea and East man matter. When Munn received lbs letter of instructions from Washington, quietly went down to Jake lUbm and informed Bun Jake, w tlmt to fix iip their paper*. Didn't he know that the »ensures wore muon to cover up frauds, ami did he not, throughout the whole of this transac* lion, act In ench a war an to effectively cover np frond by explaining It as a flight mistake, and not an attempt to defraud? lie never ban any conversation with tho two Gaugers, and yet ho re* ported that ho had made a full investigation of the matter, and the bouse waa all right. No rational explanation could bo made of hla negligence eon* alstcnl with the Idea that ho was actuated by a do air* for the honest performance of his duly. The clrcnmatniiccsalt proved the truth of Itehm a story. It was admitted that Itehm told tho truth regarding Irvin. Hoyt and bridges admitted It by their flight, Wadsworth by his failure to appear, and llcslng by his testimony. The defendant relied on general evidence sustaining character. Irvin, Hoyt, Bridges, and Heslng, up to a certain lime, were men of unspotted Integrity, of course, and they were so considered until found out. Bo* sides this hiding behind tho defense of previous good character, the defense Indulged In a generous and vigorous denunciation of Jacob Itehm. whose story waa tho only rational explanation of the whole matter. It was no defense to soy Itehm waa a bad man; It should bo shown that MUNN WA* HOT WORSR. To allow so great a conspirator to escape would bo a mockery or justice. It had also been attempted to contradict Itehm by the evidence of B. W.Munn, but It must be clear that that genllemnnwas mis taken. It was utterly impossible that tho conver sation between him and Itehm took place ihcn. It must have taken place before tliattlme. llsurcly would not have taken place after that lime, when Rohm was telling all ha knew to the Government attorneys, and a day or so afterwards went before the Grand Jury There had been a flonrlsh of trumpet* when the defense announced their ability to prove that Rohm blackmailed the gamblers, thieves, and prosti tutes. Where was tho evidence? It had not been produced, and tho only inference waa that there waa none on thla point. If ho was a bad, wicked man, and his reputation for truth not good up to this time, thonsanda of citizen* mutt have known It, and yot none had come forward. Rut the worst attempt, and the most lamentable failure, was that of trying to prove In tho Interest of Munn, Wadsworth, and Ward, that Itehm Krinrod himself before the Grand Jnry, and to s end auditor was employed. The defense, maintained that Jake waa before tho Jury twice, but six witnesses out of nine were of the opinion that he waa only examined on one and the name occasion In regard to two matters of tho 160 barrels and tho malt books. On the sub ject of Jake's being asked about Chicago crooked ness, there waa only one witness who was sure. There were two copies of Slichtor's notes before the jury—one a copy made from a copy famished by Sllchter to HolmholU, and the other a transcript made by Allen from tho notes at SBehtcr’s dicta tion. The first copy contained no question and answer about Chicago crookedness; but, In Its place, a memorandum about tho witness examining tho warehouse receipts, while the second copy con tained the interpolated question and answer, who employed this rascal to commit rnra poroert, and then came Into Court and try to bolster it op by perjury? Nobody could be suspected of Hunt those who hoped to bo benefited by it. In con cluding his argument, Mr. Ayer sold: I have already detained yon too long, gentlemen. If, upon careful and dispassionate consideration of tbo whole evidence, yon shall be natiKfied that thin defendant Is guilty of the offense charged against him in the indictment, I shall expect yon to say so by your verdict. It is useless for Congress to pass laws to restrain yenallly and corruption in office if those laws are not executed. They will remain a dead-letter noon the statute-book unless courts and juries give life to them by earning them Into effect Whatever may be yonr decision, I can not doubt it will bo an honest and fearless expres sion of your deliberate Judgment upon nil the evi dence in the ease. I hope It may be snch as will reassure good men and prove a warning and a ter ror to those mercenary and unprincipled seekers after public office, who are at all times ready to be tray the Interests of the people to gratify an unho ly and Insatiable greed for dishonesty. that the charge was ready tor delivery, but, Inas much os some of the Jurors were already past the middle age. and be did not want to subject thorn to the possible necessity of sitting up all night, he would postpone it, if they so desired, until this morning. The Jury were in favor of this, and the Court then adjourned till 0 o'clock this morning. MILWAUKEE, TUB JONAS OASB.
