Commissioner Raum declining to do so to your note of Nov 22 requesting my resignation as chief of divis ion repeated in our recent personal inter view I have to say that I assume that you will not deny that this request is not oi your motion but prompted by the secretary of the interior I accept the request as no tice to the eflect that if I do not accede to to it my dismissal will follow And yet 1 must respectfully decline to resign and so place my neck in position for tho axe of the executioner who jnst now is so busily en gaged in cotnjjletuig tho work begun on the peisons of myself and

presented the governors letter of recommendation Wood seemed competent and he Mosby decided to appoint him but in the meantime charges were made against Wood by a brotherinlaw of a very grave adultery etc These charges were later denied by Woods sister inlaw who said the brotherinlaw was a mild lunatic while Wood went right along giving witness testimony as to his reputa tion from the best kind of men First View of the Forgery Sept 14 Mosby first saw the forged paper Gov Foraker met him in theGibson House Cincinnati and said Here are thesa pa pers and there is too much of them Either then or

my pension had been increased and rerated since I had been in this position When I informed you that it was a month before I was appointed that the action wiu taken in my case you suggested that I was expecting an appoint ment You wero right I was expecting it for i had tho word of Commissioner Tanner that I should bo appointed It hasbeein pub lished time tind again that my pension was increased by Commissioner Tanner from 86 to 824 per month Tho fact is that Gen Black while commissioner put my pension up to 817 and rerated it and I was not satisfied with that because I was informed that the

In granting my pension at J4 per month Commissioner Tanner did just what three reputable members of tho medical division recommended him to do and I am informed that is tho figure thoBrooklru board advised Geu Black to grant Now against all thU comes tho dictum ol one man who without medical or siurgical skill puts his will and the power which tbo accident of political preferment to root up ancl revoke Ho does not appsar to appreciate that to re rate is to correcit an error So the only question is or should be did I suffer from error in the pact You may or may not know that when action on tha cases of em ployes of this office was first questioned Commissioner Tanner subjected those cases to the test of review by four of the best men In this office whosshonesty aud capacity I do not believo even the secretary ofthe in terior will question They reported that the action taken iu my caso was i i accord ancewiththo evidence on file in the case Investigation If the action of the secretary of the interior in directing you to call for my resignation be honest iu its impulse why I ask does ha act take the course provided by Jaw to a pension granted svrong fully or ill excess Why not give me the opportunity to defend undT oath and by professional testimony what I now receive Why does lit1 wrap himself in tho panoply of power which eucirclos a cabinet minister arrogantly exclaiming in

that I was marked because I am a friend of Tanner and placed here by him Very thar evidence would be necessary to couvin to the contrary In bidding goodbTe to this office as 1 the papers tho governor had said that he was going to do nothing with them Wit ness did not suspect tho paper of being o forgery although he was much surprised to where gave him a see Senator Shermans name He had been told in advance of tho signatures of Butter worth and McKinley Witness took the ground that if used the paper would prove to be a boomerang as Mr Campbell being exposed would turn around and publish al tho other names Witness said that Wood told him that he had gotten the paper from MlMcLeans secretary Gov Foraker hao told witness not to appoint Wood unless he was found to bo of good character and suitable attainments Publication ot the Paper Mosby said that Holstead told him day before tho publication of the paper that he was going to publish a corker next morning Walters who testified Saturday then took the stand again and said that Wood showed him the Cincinnati papei with the forged papers published in it and said that Old Suortinghorse meaning Hal stead had made a fool of himself TVood Talking Again Wood was then again put 011 the stand and said names were pinned to one of the papers that he had concocted but as a matter o fact there was no piaholes in the same paper showing that Wood swore to a lie Wood said he put the names of Sherman McKinley and other Republicans on tho to pre vent Foraker from publishing it During his examination Wood admitted that he had given a letter addressed to Governor Lucfl by Governor Foraker to a member of the Ohio State Democratic committee but swore that Foraker hadauthorized him to do so The Men Who Forced tlio Names F L Miiward and F S Davis of Cincin nati told how the names wero forged but impressed the committee with tho idea thai their connection with the matter was not at all crooked They had no idea of the use the paper was to be put to Exposure of tho Fraud George J Murray a Cincinnati lawyer testified that hedrew up tha ballotbox con tract Murray latsr heard from Miiward ol the forgery of the names and when the pa per was published ha went to Wood whc told him a long story that neither agreed with Governor Forakers testimony nor with Woods own Murray then immediately ex posed the fraud Lewis M Haddon Cincinnati was the last witness Ha had understood that Rep resentative Buttersworth Campbell and others were greatly interested in tho ballot box bill and so told Governor Foraker He had seen a paper somewhat like the one forged by Wood iu August 1SSS and on it were the names of Mr Butterworth Mr J E Campbell and McKinley The names looked like signatures The committee then adjourned to Fab S TEE PERILS OF rOEMEB EXPLORERS A Difficult Place for CiviliM 4 People to Lines for in Portu TVomen In Trades Cuioni Twin Amer ican Scheme of British Row in the French PAHIS Jan the second time Timbuctoo has been reached by steam boats This time the journey has been made by Lieut Jaime of tlae French navy with th9 eunDoats Niger and Mage It was with the Uigur that Lieut Caron made the first trip to Timbuctoo in the summer 1SS7 The only news yet re ceived is that Lieut Jaimestarted from Kuli koro on the upper Niger on Sept 16 last that he made tha journey of about 800 miles to Timbuctoo in safety remained in that famous city for some time and then re turned up tho river The entire journey oc cnpied only six weeks The natives every friendly reception This is very different from the experience of Lieut Caron Lieut Carons Risky Trip Tidiana the young prince who rules a country of about square miles with a population of 1000009 was opposed to Carons attempt to reach Timbuctoo because ha fearod the French would draw away tha trade of that city from which bo derives large profit But Caron nothing dauted went on his way and the prince did not try to molest him He however used his in fluence with the people of Ticubuctoo in duce them to give the hostile re ception Caron was not permitted to go to the city itself which is several miles from the river and after a stay of one day at the post he was glad enough to get siway without fighting The significance of this last suc cessful journey is shown by the faci that only about a halfdozen Europeans all told have ever visited the city and thosi whc got away unscathed succeeded in maintain ing their Mohammedan disguise without which they would not have escaped IN SENATE AND HOUSE FORESWORN ENGLISHMEN They Give Cp Their

outside to San Francisco via is unabla to carry much business There are men at work on tha Central Pacific road trying to clear the blockade at Emigrant Gap in the Sierras but as the snow ploughs cannot work through tha freezing ice the prospect of the road being opened within the next eighteen houis is poor The snow is seven feet deep on the level ancl fathomless in the cuts Washouts in the Mountains On the Northern Pacific Col Crockers special train has been snowed in for three days The Southern Pacific has been badly injured by washouts iu the Teachepi moun tains and beyond Los Angeles

are subject Seventyfive per cent of them are down with it and if speedy action is not taken by the authorities to send physicians few will survive The Indians have never before been afflicted with a malady of its description and have 110 idea how to treat it Jiew Measures Introduced WASHINGTON CITY Jan tho bills introduced in tho house yesterday were tbe following By Lawler making Jan 8th a national holiday in coinmenoration of the life and character Andrew Jackson Goodnight placing salt and tinned plates on tbe free list Snivel y to amend the act to prohibit tho importation and immigration of foreigners and aliens under contract or agreement to perform labor Conger Secre tary Windoms silver bill Kelly of Kansas appropriating for a monument to the negro soldiers and sailors who gave their lives for the protection of the United States joverument in the late war Hows This for Free Coinage NEW YORK Jan Evening Sun says Wall street financiers claim to have discovered that a band of Mexicans calling themselves a private bank have been coining United States silver dollars and issuing the same to Mexicans who give them in return for goods purchased on this side ol the line The profit in this scheme can be readily seen when it is known that the United States silver dollar of the present only con tains 72 cents worth of the precious metal There is nothing counterfeit about the dollar and it is therefore difficult to detect it Collieries Shut Down RIADINO Pa Jan onethird of the collieries in this region employing 8000 men have snut down The Reading rail road officials in this city say that unless there is a decided improvement in the coal trade soon every colliery owned by the company as well as by individual operators will have to close The companys tracks are blocked with cars and at Port Richmond there are lying 1500000 tons of coal which can not find a market The Surplus Reduced Below WASHIXGTOJT Crrr Jan heavy purchases ot bonds during the past week 1 have reduced the available surplus below The secretary of the treasury has therefore decided to suspend the pur published in tho The Evening Sun describ ing what is suspected to bo an extensive system of counterfeiting which has been go ing on for some time in Mexico It is said certain people across the border havo within j the past two years coined American silver dollars and after shipping them across the border havedisposedof them with a profit to thomselves of 28 cents on each dollar During the past few dayi rumors to tho effect have been afioat in Wall street but havo carefully been con fined to a few prominent bankers and finan ciers who have taken extraordinary precau tions to prevent tbe report from getting beyond their own little circle Within the past few mouths or perhaps longer it has been noticed by bankers and other men who handle fairsized sums of money in tlio por tions of the United States contiguous to Mexico that there has been a large nn un wontcdly large number of United States silver dollars in circulation This fact has been noted by bankers in Texas New Mexico and Arizonia Tracing the Coins to Mexico As soon as attention was called to It the bankers naturally began to speculate as to the causes of ir and to attempt to trace back payments irade in silver dollars Cer tain it was that tlieso coins could not have been shipped from tho United States coinage mints without the knowledge of local banks in Texas Sew Mexico and Arizona It was found thnt many these oins could be traced to Mexicans living across the border who had given them in exchange for Lommodities purchased in this country Then arose the question Where did these Mexicans get these United States silver dol lars in such large quantities Then bagan a regular investigation which led to the dis closure of many suspicious circumstances too small to be noticed by themselves but forming significant links in a chain of evi dence pointing to one of the most remarkable international crimes if such it may be termed that tbe world has ever known A Good Thing for the Bank This is the conclusion which tho bankers in Texas New Mexico ancl Arizona have arrived at as a result of their investigations That a band of Mexicans calling themselves a private bank have ben coining United States silver dollars and uttering the same to Mexicans who gave them in return for goods purchased on this sidot the border Perhaps there is more than ona of these in stitutions perhaps a half dozen The gen tlemen who are investigating this gigantic Vlvi tho sixteen shopi irT 1

"It is amazing how easy and exciting it is to access all of this information! I found hundreds of articles about my relatives from Germany! Well worth the subscription!" - Michael S.
