Cnllerton wan the crooked Gauger there; there wan also n ilraltfht Ganger on the premises. Thin wan my Impression, tint ho didn't toll me an. I really couldn’t any Cullertnn cot nuy money, but I know he wan crooked, for we apoko of ft. I need to ear to him. “There goes a lot of crooked goods. I snw everybody iiroutid the Tlllnoln putting on duplicate stamps— Mr. HallenHno. Mr. Robinson, Cullertnn, Curd, everybody, |1, slighter, j At llila stage the Court, after cautioning the Jury not to discuss thu merits of the case, took a recces till 2 o'clock, at which hour Hie eross-ox ainlnatlon of Vcrgho was resumed as follows: I did not say I saw James K. Miller at the Till* nois Willlllng company put on stamps that had been used. I saw Mr. Dallentlne ana Mr. Robin •on put on stamps at that distillery; dldn’fkoolt done In the night time; saw barrels rut) Into ware* house at night without stamps, and In tha morn* jng they had stamps on; I bad charge of the warehouse and bad the keys. It was part of my duty to weigh the grain; 1 did part of that weighing; tt was my duty to weigh tho grain for every nm«h and report. I reported once a month: that report was thu total amount; I made It out to the best of my knowledge: I weighed part of It, and some otic else weighed the rest; my re* purls were ns though I did It all. Do you actually know that Cnllerton knew of any crooked work ut the Illinois Distilling Com punyf A.—Ho knew of part of It, for he saw it; lie know wlial was done In the daytime; he know that stamps came back for use a second time; I helped him put those stamps on tho bar* rein; I saw him helping Cord putting those stamps on; can’t say now many I saw him put on; they were alcohol stamps; saw him put them on six or seven times during the month I was there; sometimes 160 barrels of crooked were taken away In a week. Tho stamps wore signed by the Ganger and Storekeeper I; signed them; don’t know that lam an expert pen man: llfuckloy was there: I signed sumps for Hinckley and James K. Miller: I think 1 signed Cullortun’s name:don’t reccollcct signing Adolph Miller’s name; could Imitate thosignaturcs of these men: don't remember I ever boasted that 1 could; Unit never happened at Hie Illinois Distilling Co. At Dickenson >t beach's (icorge Burroughs signed the Gauger's name to stamps: don’t remember sign ing Adolph Miller's name; don't remember wrltfug It on n piece first and comparing it afterwards. Mr Uallcuttnc or Mr. Itoblnson paid mo money; that money was divided secretly; I don.t know that they paid anybody but myself: remember meeting Cnllerton at Smith's saloon, No. 2110 Clark street, on the latter part of last December or January; we bad a conversation. 1 never made the remark that I was glad that Cullertnn was not in this thing, nor used words to that effect. llv Mr. Ayer—l never on any occasion undertook to sign any Ganger's name for the purpose of coun terfeiting It. A stamp would hnvo tho stencil mark on after being used, nnd would have the name of the Ganger and Storcitccpor written on It. Most of the conversation I hud with Mr. Cnllerton In the saloon was In regard to what I had testified about defendant before tho Grand Jury. t.ouis IIERQKII was next placed on the stand. Ho deposed: I have resided lu Chicago thirty years. I was appointed Storekeeper In 1801), and remained in (lovcrnmcnt employ until March, IB7U. I was at Dickenson & Abel's in February and March of 1875. Culler ton was a Gauger there at that time. There were fraudulent removals from that establishment at that time. About 100 barrels at least were re moved during the month of March. I was pnidhy Mr. Burroughs at the rate of SOOO a month for illuwlng this Illegal trafllc. Defendant must have had knowledge of this, lie allowed members of the Arm to go into the wine-room. 1 cannot swear how they put on the stamps a second time. The officers were generally sent away during this oper ation' by Mr. Burroughs on various errands. I cannot say whether Mr. Cullerton allow ed the barrels to bo taken uway from the wine-room. 1 know nothing of Mr. Cul lerton's pay, and had no conversation with him about the fraudulent transactions. While the goods were being taken from the wlnc-room and carted oil, Cullerton was generally In Die office. CROSS-EXAMINATION. Dy Mr. Lcfflngwull— Mr. Cullerton was at the dis tillery a month while I was there. I had no un derstanding ns to pay; they offered me money, and I took it. I bad to wink at this, or resign my position. I was poor and had u large family to support, and did not want to risk being discharged. 1 made the regular reports required by law. I swore to the vouchers. When 1 entered upon my duties I took an outh to discharge the duties of my office faithfully. I took the oath in good faith, but have no recollection what the exact terms were now. I was engaged in the crooked business ten months and made dally and monthly reports during that time. The Gauger draws off the spirits from the cisterns. The men handle the goods after they are stumped. The spirits should have passed from the wine-room Into my posses sion. 1 did nut sec Cullerton do much of anything with the whisky. I have always taken Mr. Cul lerion to he n smart man, and I think he thorough ly understood ths intles of a Gauger at that lime. I have seen barrels rolled from the back room Into the wlnc-room, but Ido not consider (hut as a crooked work; there was. however, none of the whisky stumped when it went out. I saw some of those barrels filled and gauged. Mr. Burroughs gauged them. I helped stamp some of the straight goods, I never saw any of the "crooked ” barrels stumped. I have been in dicted and pleaded guilty. 1 was not one of the original "squealers.*' Miller and Hinckley were Gaugers about the same lime: I know that the former was aware of the crooked business going on. I don't know whether Hinck ley knew of It; be was generally away when It wus lu progress. Redirect: I knew of the amount of crooked goods run out by keeping an account of the lux paid stumps Bin! comparing It with the quantity of whisky that went out. Mr. Burroughs would go Into tno barrel-room and gauge a lot of barrels, and (hen toko on account of them to Cullerton, and. while Cullertcn was making out ‘MI. 11.*5," Burroughs would dll up the barrels with wines. Defendant opened the wlnc-room to allow Bur roughs to draw off the wines. PARKER It. MASON was then called. Ills evidence was as follows: I was in the rectifying business hero in the fore part of 1875. I purcbusedcrooked goods of Dicken son ,t Abel during the months of February and March of that year. We used to return the stamps, ind altogether during that time wo may haw re turned 500. Thu stumps were generally used twice, and sometimes three times, On some of the stamps Cullerton's name appeared, and on others taut of Miller. Our firm paid for the “crooked" in currency. Mid for the “straight" In checks. Most of the stumps returned were (riven to Mr. burroughs, and the money was paid to Mr. Abel. [Witness guru further particulars about the transaction, but the facts have been pub lished over and over again. ] Vross-eiamliutlion: The goods were straight when they came to us. Wc took the stamps otl Hid returned them to tho distillery. 1 won't tvrear that no stamps came Into my possession with Hinckley's name on. The busii.css was going on (or two years. I cannot tell tbu mines of the (■augers on the stumps in 1873 without looking at ny books. Imu ouu of aho indicted, end have [leaded guilty. 1 cannot approximate how much 1 have defrauded the Government of. Sometimes we got 200 or 300 barrels a day from all quarters, OSnOIIN HOLLAND, bookkeeper for Parker It, Mason, was next exam ined. He Identified certain checks which he hud made out to Dickenson & Abel for goods. He also testified as to the crooked goods received at the rec tifying house. Hu hud noticed the names of Miller, hecchur, and Cnllerton on the barrels sent In from Dickenson it Abel, but could not swear when ho »iw Cullerton’s name. The cross-examination of this witness was waived. ADOLPH LAMPS uld he had worked for Parker H. Mason In 1875 m general utility man. He hud something to do with taking oil the stamps from barrels. Hu femcmbiTcd seeing barrels from Dickenson «t Abel's distillery, and Judged they were crooked, fj he took oil the stamps and gave them to Mr. Anson. In the months of February and March, 1*75, ho remembered seeing tho names of Miller •b<l Cnllerton on the stamps. During those two noiilhs there must have been received from 4UO to bOO barrels from Dickenson .t Abel’s. In cross-examination witness said ho had worked [ur Mason about eleven years. Hu commenced “king tho stamps oil the barrels In December, “«4. The first lot curno from Furlong’s, but be could nut remember what Gauger's namo appeared o.i tho stamps. Witness was questioned as to tnu timber of barrels from tho other distilleries, but Be had no distinct recollection on the subject. Hu Blew the stamps were the same, when they came tick the second time, by the numbers, of which he B'ptan account, to make (he gauging the third hue easier. He was working for his bread and fitter, and simply did what he was told lu remov kg the stumps. joiiH 8. cono next placed on the aland, lie elated (hat he *»s engaged at the Illinois Distillery at the wnio Uie aa Cullorlun, amt corroborated Vurgbu's testi tuny as lu tbu “crooked” transactions. During Iprll, 1875, be saw defendant nulling stamps *tilcli bud been used on Darrels of spirits. ~l u> generally got $3 per barrel for conniving u the frauds. An arrangement wits made between wllcrton and witness by which they divided the toncy between them. This arrangement was arrltd out. There was no regular time of pay out ; when witness wanted money ho got It. la cross*examination witness said he commenced 7* 'Crooked business ut the Northwestern Distillery J*h7L Ho had left the country fur Europe at beginning of the troubles, and only returned oilerduy. lie received a telegram fromhta uncle, li. Miller, telling him to come back, as were all right. Witness did nut insist upon ''“unity before leaving Canada, but simply sula If be gave the uovermuenl the benellt of his '•lilentt ho might to receive an equivalent. Ho ** tutlctled with the arrangement made, or bu nut have returned, nr. liuulell said the witness had simply got an “"banee that he would not bo troubled while ho u ’ Ulltl woultl bo allowed to return to Us Court—How does the witness understand (he 1 understood that I should not be .übled while here,—that I might come and attend business without fear of being ar- .• h « Court—You are merely hero under the prom- V,{ »afe conduct! ST. IsOUI9. MILL MOUft INDICTMENTS. . Special DhpatcK to The Tribune. 7. Louis, Mo., Juno 7.—Koine more of tbo Wblaky-Hlug distillers were die ?|*d ot tuia morning lu the United titaU* Strict Court by Judge Caldwell. Shortly after the opening of court District-Attorney Dyer asked that sentence bo passed ou Alfred Bovls, A. 0. Fraser, J. L. Bctneakcr, and Her* bard U. Hcnsberg, distillers who bad pleaded guilty under tho Indictment. The District Attorney referred to tho sentences passed by Judge Treat on other distillers, and called the attention of Judge Caldwell to tho great «er vice tho defendants had been to tho Guv* ernment In tho whisky prosecutions. The counsel for tho defendants rnadt use of similar arguments, and tho Court then pro ceeded to pass sentence, Inflicting tho same pun ishment as had boon Inflicted by Judge West on the rectifiers whoso cases were disposed of lost week. fHMEON RAT. The District Attorney afterwards appeared is court ami stated that ho had a motion to make In tho cose of Simeon Hay,a Uaugcr, who had sever al Indictments pending against him. Nolle prose quls were entered as to some of them, and the others consolidated. Ho (tho Prosecuting Attorney) had examined) Into the case thoroughly, and was perfectly satisfied that not only had tho defendant never participated lu a single dollar of Illegal profit, but no was totally Innoconlof any criminal Intent.— even the technical violation of the law. It was true that Day had signed duplicate dumping papers, hut Hist had only arisen out of tho trust he reposed In others, —the same as every business man was In the habit of signing documents brought to him by a confidential clerk. ;lle asked leave to nolle pros, the case, which was done, and Itay dis charged from ' his bonds. Itay Is a nephew of William McKee, of Hie Vloht- Democrat, and Is the only person Indicted who was not tried, and the only perron charged with complicity in tho whisky frauds, except Dab* cock, who escaped conviction. Ills ease was quite similar to that of Marsh, tho Kansas City Gauger recently pardoned by the President. REMAINING CASES. This constitutes Hie whisky cases so far as this term Is concerned. Col. Dyer states that no other will be presented for sentence until next term, and then he will bo out of otllcc. The remaining cases are those against John McFall, C. D. Robbins, Hebon D. Thorpe, Barnett 11. Engclkc. A M. Everest, and J. M. Fltzrov. “TUB IMPRISONMENT.” Although the sentences pronounced to-day call fnr the Imprisonment of the parties In the County Jnlt, they were subjected to no worse restraint upon their liberty than a few hours’detention In the Marshal's ofifcc. Charles h. nonn. A carious circumstance has occurred In connec tion with the case of Charles L. Uobb, the dis tiller who died ut Peoria the day before he was to have ho sentenced. The day previous to his death his father. Charles Hobb. In anticipation of the SI,OOO penalty, called at the Marshal's office and left that amount with that officer to cover his son's line. The dead man's administrators have made a demand on the Marsha] for the return of the money, but the Marsha) refused to deliver U up, and continues to hold possession. NEW ORLEANS. BEFORE TUB CONGRESSIONAL COMMITTEE. Now Orleans, JuncT.—William Swan, whoso name appears on the Custom-House pay-roll, testified that ho never worked lu the Custom- House, and that his name on the roll was a for gery. He never received any money from the Custom-House. John A. Walshe testified In regard to state ments mode by Supervisor Hunt, and says he met Hunt os stated, but did not tell blm wlmt his name was. Didn’t tell him ho wished to make arrangements with him similar tu that made with Cobb, but never made any; orrangemunt with Cobb; did not send any telegram to Cobb. Tbo Committee here produced the telegram to Cobb, signed “J. A. W.” Walshe Admitted hav ing sent (U lie seldom ever signed his full name. Ho had no reason to doubt that Cobb would know it was from him. Frank N. Wicker, Collector of Customs at Key Wont, testified regarding a crooked Importation of cigars by Bowes Bros. Special Treasury Agent Klnsclla testified concern ing four export bonds under which 1,8124 barrels of whisky were taken out of bonded warehouse in IBOU, when Steadman was Collector of Internal Hcvcmic. Thu bunds were afterwords canceled, and when reports of the Collectors of ports tu which whisky had been manifested were received they showed that no such shipments bad been made. The same witness testified that in 1808 large cargoes of whisky and tobacco wore taken out of bonded warehouses undcrexporlatlon bonds and never were shipped. The bonds wore canceled and not put in suit, MINNESOTA. WINONA. Special Dispatch to The Tribune.

The Homo Heroines Conildoration of tho Geneva Award Bill. Estimated Receipts and Expenditures of Mio Government forjtlie Fiscal Vear. A Falling O£T in Ztevenuo from Quo toms and Internal Taxes. GKNKVA AWARD, TUB HIM, IN TUB IIOU3B. Special DUpalch to 77*s Tribune. Wahrinoton, D. C., June 7.— The debate In the House to-day was on the hill reported by the majority of the Judiciary Committee pro viding for the payment from the Geneva Award fund of all actual losses sustained by the depre dations of the Confederate cruisers, most of which received aid In men, ammunitions, and provisions In British ports. This hill further provides that, after the actual sufferers of loss have been paid, the Insurance companies whose actual losses, accounting for war premiums received, were provided for and paid under the act of 1874, shall bo paid pro rule from tho residue of the fund. Judge Lord, the Chairman of the Sub committee reporting this bill, sustained it upon the Hour In a lengthy and forcible speech, tending to show that although the sum of $16,600,000 was paid by England as representing the losses sustain ed by the acts of bat three of the cruisers, yet the money was paid to the United HLatea AH A NATION, with the right of distribution reserved, and espe cially as to Insurance companies who were known to have made money by the hazard of war risk”. Judge Lord’s argument was listened to with mark ed attention. lie was followed by Froctor Knott in behalf of (he Insurance companies. The debate will probably occupy another day, as several mem ber* are prepared to discuss the question. NOTES AND NEWS. ENCOURAGING. Special Ditpatch to The Tribune. Washington, D, C., June 7.—For manyyoars the loss by exchange Jn the negotiation of Con sular drafts in the diplomatic service has been considerable, and an annual appropriation Is made to cover such loss, the amount appro priated for the current year being $48,000. There Is occasionally on Indication that, us the United States becomes more and more a com mercial centre, that this statu of things will change. The American Consul ut Canton recently sold a draft on the United Stales Treasury at r premium of 3 per cent. Heretofore the Government has invariably been subjected to a discount, ond this Is the llrst time In the memory of the present Treasury officials that a draft from a far-ou foreign station has sold at a premium. IN THE SENATE YESTERDAY. The Senate did a good day's work to-day Id finishing the Legislative, Kxccntive, and Judicial Appropriation bib, and in passing the Fortification bill. It Is well known that the Senate Appropriations Committee refused to submit to the reduction made by the House In the must Important of the series of ap propriation hills, and restored the amounts ns gruulcd In previous bills to the same standard. The Democrats In the Senate, with very tew ex ceptions, tacitly agreed with thcirUepublicun asso ciates, and so the bill, ns passed by the Senate to day, is about the same us ou previous years. Toere arc hi the bill, ts It passed to-day, about UUO amendments. THE COMING DEADLOCK. It now goes to the House, ond (ho Committee of that body will determine whether they will agree to the tienato amendments or begin the deadlock that has boon talked of so much lately. It is said that the House will not recede, and It is protty certain that the Senate will not, for (here Is no division in the Senate on the question as regards politics. The deadlock would, there fore seem unavoidable, with no certainty of ad journment for two months ut least. The Fortifica tion bill passed the Senate us it camu from the House, without a single amendment. A STRANGER. Thsru was horn this evening to Mrs. Col. Fred Grant, nccllonorc, a girl baby; weight 11 pounds, and doing well. WILLIAM WIRT STUBS is not to be put down.

GIRDLING TILE GLOBE. A Great Industrial Organization, Whoso Products Can Do It Every Eight Days. One of the Host Unique and Important ol All the Centennial Exhibits* A Thread of Silk Which in a Little Over a Week Might Encircle the Earth, Something About “Corticelli” and Other Popular Mysteries. Special Correspondence rtf The Tribune. Pnit.AiiELruiA, June 7.—There la a witchery In everything pertaining to silk. The mystery of its inception In Die still life of He cocoon; the dldlculty of ita various processes of manu facture, and its perennial beauty when com plete In thread or fabric, moke silk a theme of cver-fasdnating Interest. Here at tlie Centen nial, close under the shadow ot the mighty en gine by whose majestic power the shafts arc driven that keep In busy play the representative Industries of the world, la a department that rivals In interest the engine itself. It is the operation of manufacturing mudilnc-twlst and sewing-silk, conducted by the famous NONOTUCK SILK COMPANY, of Florence, Muss. Every process, save that of the coloring, Is shown. Machines exactly like those In the Nonotuck Company’s vast works have been set up, ami are run by skilled opera tives to the dcllghtof visitors who surge arouud the stand from morn till evening. The products of this Company are known and admired In every quarter of the land, and the encomiums of Its wares arc heard here Iron pert pie of every State. The most Intense of sympa thy and praise comes, of course, from the femi nine portion of the throngs. Ladles know right practically TUB VALUE OP I'EIIFECT SILK TIIIIEAD, mnl the Inimitable “Cortlcelll" has been n household word with them for year*. But the Importance of this. one of the most diameter* istleof American industries, is obvious to nil sexes and classes, ami men, women, and children of every degree liock around the Nonotuek De partment In eager admiration of Its whirring machinery, nimble workers, and peerless goods. 1 cannot refrain from joining In their enthusi asm, which is happily infectious, and giving readers of The Tuiuune n sketch of the meth ods by which the “ Cortledll M and other world renowned brands of the Nonotuek silk is made. The Company starts with the Imported skeins or “hanks’’ of raw silk. These, though fine, are harsh to the touch, and though roughly glossy, have none of the splendid smooth lustre which Is one of the crowning glories of Mulshed silk. The imported skeins lire wound upon bobbins on one machine, after which they are “douhleu” on another. This process consists In running several gossamer threads together to procure the requisite thickness for spuming. The ma chines on which the “doubling” is'ellectcd are marvels of blended delicacy, simplicity, ami durability, and work like magic. Frames are so adjusted*as to stop instantly one of the tluv silken llbres breaks, or whenever the silk is all drawn oil from any of the bobbins. Tills of course attracts the operative's attention, and tlie lihre is mended, or a aewly-lUlcd bobbin in serted, by which means the uniformity hi the size of the thread, so essential to its excellence, is securetL Afur “doubling” comes TUB “ SPINNING.” Here Is brought into requisition a machine with whirling spindles which do their own oiling, and which revolve at the animated speed of nearly six thousand turns u minute. Back to the “doubling” frames next go the spun llbres. Three spun threads are wound upon a single bobbin, and these are Anally twisted compactly upon still another machine. Tliis completes the thread, bo far as its size is concerned, and it Is now a solid, tenacious cord. The thread must now he dyed, for which process It is reeled once more foto skein form, upon uu accurate machine having an attachment which stops the reel us soon us the requisite amount has been reeled Into each “hank." TUB MAUVELOUS CULOItI.NU PIIOCESsJ, by which the silk takes on every beautiful hue and Uni known to art and nature, could nut be shown at the Exposition, on account of the limited space assigned the Company. But, an old resident of Massachusetts, 1 have wondered through the spacious dye-houses of the Nonotuek works at Florence, and can till lu this gap for the hciielit of tile reader. The skeins of silk are first boiled for four hours In strung soumsnds, to free them from the “animal gum ” which the silk Inherited In the cocoon. From a com paratively harsh thread, the uilk emerges from its prolonged soapy cooking soft and'brilliant, but reduced in weight Just about 2T> per cent. Then comes the coloring. If dyed u pure while or in bright colors the weight is not in creased. Black is tlie hue giving the most ad vantage to irresponsible linns, fur lu coloring silk an Inky snide it is possible to ADD KOUEUi.N MATTEU po as to Increase Its weight almost indefinitely. Tills explains the nondescript stuff sold both in fabrics and threads as cheap black silk, Ladle* who buy It uml are vexed in soul at being swindled by what seemed heavy, durable goods, am now understand that their purchases have been part silk and a larger part pernicious dye* stuff. They should remember tills, ami beware of “bargains” In black silk, whether dress goods or thread. The Incomparable silk of the Nonotuck Com pany, having been colored and dried, U next woiuid upon bobbins preparatory to being dually COILED UPON SPOOLS for packing. The spool*, as my fair readers well know, are uf various sizes,’holding from lUJ to U,uud yards each. The Nonotuck Com pany makes Its own spools, having a branch factory for this purpose at Leeds, Mass. The imiml“Cortlctlli,” known wherever perfect sewing-silk is used and appreciated, is stumped indelibly In red and blue upon the heads of the spools, the machine used lor this purpose hav ing been Invented by the Nonotuck Company. One of these machines, an exquisite piece of mechanism, unsurpassed hv any example of mechanical genius at the Exposition, is shown here in the Company’s stand. A boy am ruu It, and can print upon It 120 SPOOLS A MINUTB. This Is equivalent to ten luim-ls uf spools per day, an amount hardly needed here at the Ex position, so the machine run is at reduced speed and allowed to rest a portion uf the time. When It Is remembered Unit the regular business of the Nonotuck Company keeps several of these machines in steady operation leu hours a day, the reader will nut be surprised to learn that “C'ortlcelli” silk is to be found in almost every household from the Atlantic to the I’ueltie. All of the machinery exhibited by the Nono tuck people Uof their own construction, and the machines have no rivals for the purposes for Which they were perfected. Several of them were Invented, or have Improvements which wore wrought out, by members of the Nonotuck Company, and these have been duly protected by letters patent. The Nonotuck Company, whose Chicago office U at No. 14T Slate street, was the pluueer iu the art of maklug machine-twist. in nsiinUAUY, 1853, It discovered how to remedy a difllculty found to exist when using ordinary sewing-silk on sewing-machines, and the heart of Isaac Singer was made glad ticyoml expression at the discov ery. Hu declared that the usefulness of the sowing-machine bad been Increased very greatly thereby. At this present time, fully llvemillioii dollars’ worth of mue'.dne-twbt is sold every year In thu United States. UK PALS have been awarded in deserved numbers to this Company fur years; and Chill, the lust nation before ours to bolil u world's fair. )nu< just for warded the chief prize, a medal und diploma (or the best sewlng-sllk, to the Nouutuck’s olllelals. Thu Company's position Is indeed pleasant and enviable. Its matchless brands, “Nom*- tuek” und “Corlieelll,” aro known und ad mired from Maine to California. It Is the recipient of practical tributes of esteem from every comity, State, national, und international festival at which its wares uru displayed. Its exhibits hero, the manufacturing one In thu centre of Machinery Hull and thu magnllleent show of Us rinlahed goods In the Main Building, are two of the foremost attractions of Centen nial year, eulogized by visitors from every zone, und worthy of thu Company whose manu factories ire the largest In their lino In thu world, and whose product of silk thread every eight days forms u cord long enough to completely encircle the globe.
