Charlee Swayne -was appointed District
Judge for the Northern Florida District
by President Harrison. 15 years ago. He
is 62 years of age. He was extensively
indorsed for Supreme Justice in - l&Qt,
after the death of Justice Field.
Tint Impeachment Since 1876.
The Swayne proceedings are the first
of their kind alnce the impeachment in
1876 of General W. W. Belknap, who
was Secretary of "War in General Grant's
WASHINGTON, Doc.-13. Sitting as a
grand jury, the Houae of Representa
tives today, with almost a full member
ship, adopted a resolution providing for
the Impeachment of Judge Swayne, of
the Kprihorn District of Florida, for
"high crimes find mlsdinr&Shors."
Throughout the session intense interest
was shown by members.
Eollowing the adoption, of the im
peachment resolution, provision was
made for the appointment of five mem
bers to notify the Sonate of the im
peachment and for a committee of
seven to present the case to the Sen
ate. That the members fully appreciated
the responsibility rosting upon them
"waj evidenced by the close attention
which they paid to the reading by
Palmer (Rep., Pa.) -of the specifica
tions and evidence in the case.
As Palmer detailed the various
amounts paid to Judge Swayne as nec
essary expenses, he was subjected to
a fire of qucstlonsby several members.
A quostion by Mr. Adams (Pa.) if it
wore the custom or the other Judges to
accept the maximum of 510 per day for
expenses aroused the ire of Palmer,
who answered with an emphatic "no,"
adding that if it was the custom it
would be no evidence in this case.
"We are," he said, with emphasis,
"trying the case of Judge Swayne, and
not all the Judges of the United
Expense Account Unexplained.
Replying to Lacey (la.). Palmer said
the committee did not look into the
quostion of whethor the rate of $10 a
day was a maximum allowance, not
thinking it relevant. The charge
against Judge Swayne of swearing that
his expenses were $10, when, in fact,
the expenses were proved to be con
siderably less, he said, stands unex
plained and undefended by the Judge.
In order that it might be considered
as a part of the record in the case, and
taken Into account in making up the
decision of the House Clayton (Dem.
Ala.) quoted from a decision of the
Court of Claims regarding what may
be regarded as proper expenses of a
After concluding his resume of tho
evidence. Palmer said that if Judge
Swayne had done well lie ought to be
vindicated and sent out with the com
mendation "well done good and faith
ful servant." If Judge Swayne had done
ill he ought to be sent to trial, "where
his excuse and apologies may or may
not receive consideration." If the House
were of the opinion that Judge
Swayne's conduct had been commend
able, "lot him go scot free," but, he
added, amid impressive silence, "in my
judgment it will be a sorry day for the
republic when such behavior is com
mended by the representatives of the
people." The courts, he declared, are
the refuge of the weak, defenseless
and oppressed, and upon their integ
rity and purity depends the preserva
tion of life, liberty and property.
Mr. Palmer closed by saying: "That
they may be kept pure and free
from all reproach is my prayer and my
hope, and for that reason I shall vote
to impeach the Hon. Charles Swayne'
Clayton (Dem. Ala.) said: "This man
is unworthy of the high office." He was
euro that the House, if It were satisfied
from the testimony that Judge Swayne
was an unjust and unworthy man,
would not hesitate to see that the for
mal charges are made against him and
caute his arraignment and trial at the
bar of the Senate.
Clayton Severely Arraigns Judge.
Clayton was particularly severe in
his arraignment of what he character
ized as Judge Swayne's, excuses and ex
culpatory testimony regarding his fail
ure to acquire a residence in Pensa
cola. "Ah," he said, striking his desk, "when
he studies the case and the report he sees
that he did not swear far enough, and
now he tiptoes on this question of resi
dence." Judge Swayne's amended testimony, he
declared, amounted to nothing. When the
Judfe took step to acquire a. .residence
in his district "he had wind of these im
The question of Judge Swayne's resi
dence was also discussed by Glllett (CaL),
who insisted that Judge Swayne had dis
tinctly shown an Intent to make Pensa
cola his home. All the effort and industry
of the parties making the charges against
Judge Swayne, he said, had not produced
a single witness who said Judge Swayne
resided or had a home in Delaware. It
made no difference, he contended, if Judge
Swayne were not in Pensacola over 20
days a year, because he might have been
somewhere else, "doing business for his
country." The record showed that Judge
Swayne went to Florida, Alabama and
Texas to hold court.
"There was no evidence," he maintained,
"that anybody suffered injur' by reason
of the fact that Judge Swayne was not
Glllett then took up the judicial acts of
Judge Swayne, who Justified them on the
'ground that Judge Swayne notonly had
the legal right to act as he did in the
several cases complained of, but also had
jurisdiction so to do.
While he admitted, in reply to a ques
tion by Palmer (Pa.), that traveling over
the country by Judge Swayne in a pri
vate car of the Jacksonville, Tampa and
Key West Railroad thon in the hands of
a receiver appointed by Judge Swayne
was a thing that ought not perhaps have
been done, he contended that it did not
involve that turpitude that should cause
The subject of the amounts charged by
Judge Swayne and sworn to as having
been expended by him for reasonable ex
penses, said Glllett, which witness ex
plained away and excused by some cir
cumstances, was a serious accusation. If
the $10 a day were collected by Judge
Swayne with wrongful intent its collec
tion should not be excused.
Laughter at Expense of Gillett.
Mann (111.) provoked laughter by calling
attention to the fact that Gillett had
made a report in the case one way and
made a speech the other; and he tried to
secure a categorical answer as to whether
he thought the resolution should pass.
"When the roll call comes," said Gil
lett, "the gentleman from California will
"Then," retorted Mann, "I shall be com
pelled to vote after the gentleman."
"If you will follow the gentleman from
California," quickly roplled Gillett, "you
may vote correctly."
Powers (Mass.) declared that the real
question was whether Judge Swayne
ought to be impeached upon one or more
articles of the specifications.
Littlefield (Me.) defended Judge Swayne.
He would not, he said, vote for any speci
fication he felt the Senate would not sus
tain. "If you believe." said Henry (Dem.,
Tex.), "Jodge Swayne acted fraudulently
In making these accounts, don't you think

"No," replied Littlefield; "I don't think
this House In an impeachment proceeding
will undertake to present to the Senate,
and stand before the people, on the prop
osition that it is necessary to rely on the
atmosphere created by one sustained
charge to sustain a charge that is vague
In its character."
Lamar (Dem.. Flo.), who filed the orig
inal charges against Judge Swayne. closed
the discussion by denouncing the Judge -acrr!
"tyrannical and unjust.

BRIBERY CHARGED IN ELECTION
Conservatives Begin Proceedings
Against Prominent Liberals.
HALIFAX, N. S.. Dec 13. A sensation
was created in political circles today by
the institution of legal proceedings against
W. S. Fielding, Finance Minister in the
Federal Cabinet: Sir Frederick Borden,
Minister of Militia and Defense, and four
other leading Liberal members of Parlia
ment In Nova Scotia. Petitions filed in
the Supreme Court asked that the Parlia
mentary seats of all ten be called vacant
on the grounds of alleged bribery com
mitted by agents in their behalf in the
general election of Thursday, November
3. The petitions were filed In the interest
of the Conservative party.
The proceeding is believed to be an at
tempt on the part of the Conservative ele
ment to obtain several members from this
province. In the November election they
lost every one of the 18 seats. Few of
the Liberal pleaders are now in Halifax.

Greene Calls Him a Faker, a
Liar and a Robber of Poor
Widows and Orphans.
BOSTON, Mass., Dec 13. (Special.)
President William C. Greene, of the
Greene Consolidated " Coppor Company,
published here today a half-page of bit
ter denunciation of Thomas W. Lawson
for the lattcr's methods of advertising and
raiding of Amalgamated and other cop
per stocks. In It Colonel Greene calls
Lawson a faker, charlatan, liar and rob
ber of the poor widows and orphans. He
announces that he Is coming to Boston
to tell Lawson to his face. In Lawson's
office, the very same things.
Lawson has replied to this attack and
says he will continue in his course, de
spite Greene. Standard Oil, "the sys
tem" or any living being. He declares he
is not responsible for the losses of Colonel
Greene, amounting to $5,000,000 it is said,
in Greene Consolidated stock, or for the
drop in that stock this week. Lawson
says that Greene Consolidated was one
of the stocks he exempted from attack
ia his recent drives at the market.
Everything is tense excitement here to
night, and it Is believed that Greene will
make good his throats. Lawson's rooms
are closely guarded tonight by detectives
and- Lawson today sat' at his desk with a
six-shooter in an open drawer at his ci

GREENE HAS NOT YET LEFT.
He Announces Intention of Meeting
Lawson in Advertisements.
NEW YORK, Dec 13. Wall street was
today discussing the possibility of a meet
ing between Colonel W. C. Greene, of the
Greene Consolidated Copper Company,
and Thomas W. LawBdn, of Boston, Colo
nel Greene having announced in several
morning newspaper advertisements that
he was going to Boston this morning to
confront Mr. Lawson, whom he blamed for
the recent crash in copper stocks. Colo
nel Greene had not left this city late
this afternoon, and some of his close
friends said they were not at all sure
that tho threat contained in the adver
tisement would be carried out. It was
positively stated that he would not go
to Boston tonight.
Colonel Greene reached his office early
today and denied himself to every one
seeking information. During the day, how
ever, when a rumor that he had lost con
tr61 of the Greene Consolidated Company
was circulated. Colonel Greene sent out
a signed statement in denial, alleging
that he and his friends held a majority
of the stock.
AVERT WALL-STREET PANIC."
Capitalists Block All Movements to
Force Prices Downward.
NEW YORK. Dec 13. Wall street be
gan the day with more anxiety. than it has
shown since the May panic In 1S01. Chief
among the reasons for this feeling was
the absolute collapse of the market at
yesterday's close, revealing weak spots in
A great majority of the broker
age houses had their clerical forces at
work until late last evening, and some
of the members worked long after mid
night examining accounts and Issuing im
perative calls to customers for margins.
Many alock exchange members arrived
much earlier than usual, to prepare for
tho day, and to get a line on the London
market. That center offered but slight
encouragement. No Americans showed
general recovery from the opening de
moralization there Almost every con
ceivable sort of rumor was in the air
this morning, and the names of indi
viduals and firms who are commonly
supposed to have suffered by the break
were freely mentioned. Few doubted, how
ever, that the moneyed interests were
prepared for any emergency.
Attracted by the previous day's events,
the gallery of the stock exchange held a
large crowd of onlookers. The floor was
.crowded with members, many of thorn
old timers, who seldom appear there, save
on momentftus' occasions. The subdued
noise which prevailed at the opening broke
into a roar at the first sound of the
chairman's gong. The greatest crowds
were again around the Amalgamated
Copper and United States Steel trading
posts, where brokers fairly mauled one
another in their efforts to execute orders.
Many of these, as indicated by the
opening quotations, were to sell "at the
market." The offices of the brokerage
houses were crowded with customers,
many of them from out of town. They
seemed -to think It necessary to their in
terest to be la close touch with the situa
tion. In the offices Nof the commission
houses, which have private wires running
to the leading cities, the scene was es
pecially animated and exciting.
Telegraph operators were receiving and
sending countless messages, and it seemed
aa if the country at large was waiting
on Wall street. -
Before the end of the first half hour
the tape was at least fen minutes behind
the market Amalgamated Copper was
quoted at 63&. at a timo when 61 wasj
being bid on the floor. Support was
shown in this and other stock?, and brok
ers supported buying by Insiders. Bar
gain hunters also took a hand. Offerings
of copper seemed to be freely adver
tised, and as much gossip as leaked out
of the boardroom in the early trading In
dicated that the buying was of a general-
The delayed quotations on the tape re
corded some further disastrous breaks in
prices, but powerful support quickly be
came manifest, and there were spasmodic
rallies all through tho list.
The bears rushed to cover and carried

In Tennessee Coal.
Trading was extremely feverish for a
time on the rally, but the market settled
down into a quieter tone before 11 o'clock.
Call, money opened at 3 per cent and
held at that figure throughout the morn
ing. London traders dealt both ways,
but probably sold 20,000 shares on balance.
The story was told that just before the
opening here 23,000 shares of United States
Steel preferred were dumped on the Lon
don market, the object apparently being
to depress prices here.
London doubtless sold back all this
stock on profit taking. Room traders are
said to have bought 15,000 shares of Steel
preferred, which they sold at a profit of
li points. Numerous similar quick
"turns" were probably made on a smaller
scale. The recovery conveyed the theory
that the greater part of the liquidation by
weak interests has been completed. The
buying power. In the Judgment of onlook
ers, was of a better quality than had
been seen since the beginning of the de
cline. The market became quiet at the recov
ered level of prices, but support was
forthcoming at any attempt to force the
level downward again. The whole mar
ket showed a close sympathy -with Amal

in the afternoon, and support for that
stock relieved the pressure at any other

elsewhere, melted away In short order,

was again forthcoming after the same
character as that which had protected

sulted, and in a few cases prices ran up
higher than before.

Before leaving the United States Mar
shal's office, Mrs. Chadwick, at the sug
gestion of her counsel. Philip Carpenter,
consented to an interview with the news
pnper men who were waiting. It was
shortly before 7 o'clock when the report
ers were admitted to Mr. Hcnkel's office,
where Mrs. Chadwick was awaiting them.
She was reclining on a couch, and seemed
particularly alert- She was the absolute
mistress of herself, and either smiled as
she made her statements, or gave way to
an expression of bitterness.
"Many statements that have appeared
are absolutely false," she began.1 "I have
read statements In one or two papers
that are absolutely false. I am physically
and mentally broken down. Im not in
any condition to make a statement

I could not obtain bail. Since my arrest

"Yes, that's true," he replied.

the reporters asked her to disclose the

"I shall use .names," corrected Mrs.

may take weeks to get it out. It may
be, however, that it will be published to

certainly not until all my obligations are
"I have not tried to flee- from any one;
not even from the newspapermen," she
continued, with a smile. "When you

most prominent men In New York City.
I had dinner with them at Sherry's, and
came back, and you did not sec me.

"Yes; I left Ihe Holland at 2 o'clock
and went to the home of one of the most
prominent men In New York and remained
there until 11:30. When I returned to tho
hotel the elevator man who took, me up
stairs winked at me and whispered: 'The
newspaper men say it is rumored that you
have committed suicide.' I said to him:
'JLet them say what they please.' "
"Will you say anytlhng about your re
lations with Mr. Carnegie?" was asked.
"I am not going to be questioned," she
replied.- "I have nothing to say about Mr.
Carnegie, and nothing to say about any
one else. I want to say emphatically that
I have not been compelled to return to
Cleveland. If the grand jury had Indicted

"I feel a little better than I did a week
ago, but I am still nervous, and I can
hardly stand on my feet."

shortly before 4 o'clock- An hour earlier
Mr. Carpenter had gone to the office of
United States District Attorney Burnett,
in the Federal building, and Informed htm
that his client would waive examination.
Marshal Henkel and Commissioner Shields

THREE PEOPLE PERISH
St Paul Is Early Called On for
HIGH WIND FANS THE FLAMES
Blaze Originates in Photographic
Supply House From Cause Yet
Unknown, and Entire Retail
District Is Endangered.
MINNEAPOLIS, Dec. 14. Fire whictf
broke out in the photographic supply
house of the O. H. Peck Company on
Fifth street South, at 10:30 o'clock lasi
night, spread to adjoining buildings and
caused a loss roughly estimated at $3,000,
000. The Peck building was entirely gut
ted, while the six-story furniture house
of Boutell Bros., one of the largest es
tablishments of its kind in the North
west, was ruined and a number of smaller
buildings also destroyed. The cause of
the blaze is as yet unknown.
The Powers Mercan title Company, aa
immense department store just across
First avenue south, was threatened with
destruction, but heroism upon the part ol
the Minneapolis and St. Paul Fire De
partments prevented the destruction, al
though immense damage was done to the
stock by water. St- Paul was called upon
for aid soon after the flames were discov
ered and sent all her available fire ap
paratus. For a time the best part of the retail
district of the city was threatened, and
the firemen seemed unable to stay the on
rush of the flames, which were driven by
a high -wind from- the north. By allowing
the. buildings already on fire to burn them
selves out and confining their efforts to
adjacent buildirgs the firemen had the
conflagration well under control at 2
o'olock- this morning. One man was re
ported killed by coming Into contact with
a live wire, and two firemen are also be
lieved to have been killed- The fire was
discovered in Peck's photographic supply
house at Fifth avenue south and Fifth
street. It soon got beyond control and
attacked Boutell Bros. store. The big
store, filled with draperies and rugs, hung
from display racks, was easy prey for
tho flames and the store was hopelessly
With the firemen still working on Bou
tell's building, the walls fell with a crash.
Two firemen were seen in the glare that
lighted the whole city, to be buried be
neath the avalanche of brick and mortar.
One of the men caught in the fall of the
walls was a member of the salvage corps.
The other was a fireman from one of the
Tho fire spread to the New England
housefurnlshing establishment, across the
street from the Boutell store. Then it
leaped to the Powers Mercantile Com
pany's great department sotre.
The district in which the fire occurred
Is closely built up, most of the buildings
being substantial brick and 'stone struc
tures. The high wind carried burning
brands and sparks In all directions, and
many small blazes were lighted within a
radius of four blocks. The principal news
papers of the city were located but a
block from the scene of the fire, and for
a time were thought to be in danger.
The Northwestern Bank building, the
Phoenix office building, the National
Bank of Commerce, the New York Lifa
building and many other big office build
ings were within the fire zone, and for
time seemed In danger of being wiped out.
The cold weather and high wind deterred
the firemen greatly in their efforts to
subdue the flames, but fortunately thg
wind died down about 2 o'clock, and fur
ther danger of the fire spreading seems
to have been averted.
