: . H. , Mitchell newly elected United
. States Senatorfrom Oregon, as yet bat
" ' little known lo fame, baa ' lately : been
made the subject of a sensational story,
tl wnica snows bun to nave bad quite a
history, with incidents in. it redounding
not wholly to bis credit.' When he was
slain John H. Mitchell, his story pos
f seised no interest for any one outside
.f his .own " immediate., circle,,,, but
" ' now ' that he 'has become a member
of the august United States Senate,
, , hia antecedents and past life become of
public interest. In tbe position 01. a
1 ' Senator exposed to the thousands of
- temptations incidental to that high place
: it is highly important that 'each bena-
tor should start out virtuous, at least.
- as Hsnry .Wilson -did; when he went
out of the shoe business . and into leg-'
islative cobbling1." . .
So, when the breezes gently whisper
tl in Pittsburg that the new Senator
" from Oregon was an old Pennsylvania
il 3T, ssanV and that he waa present under an
assumed name on account of an unfor
.T " ; tunate past life, : the ' matter became at
.v . once a proper one for investigation.
'Zl Qdffe ' '.''.A 8ENAT0B WITH AJT ALUS.' W'U '
The: object of the ' inquiry was not
tt1 V. " y86'?? IPy P8 scandal against
jut. Aiitcneu, out as an uniteap tares
' Senator with &a: alias is a suspicious
- character, and if for no other reason than
in-justice ' to1 the Senator himself, an.
explanat'on , was sought. Then the
'charge, made against him of: being s
defaulter to a large amounf was worthy
" the most careful attention. Your cor
' respondent went to Butler, the, former
home of Mr. Mitchell, yesterday; and
there in conversation with the old law
partner, received tbe history of the new
1 Senator's early life. -His Butler" expe- i
rience waa a bitter one, 'J
THE OLD, OLD STORY,
1 1 fi C T 2 wduiaW Wthe
ter as a .promoter of misery, seems to
l'have been ' his." In " Butler he was
known as John Hippie. One: days his
burden became too heavy for him, and
he fled without .word of warning, tak
. ing with him some $4,000 of his part
' oer's' money, for which he left what he
' said in a letter was to be used as an
13 3 2 ?jui7alent.r From ihis his partner real
ized about, $2,500. The balance was
afterward . made good to , him.;", jj Tor
years, however, Hippie remained un
known to his former Bntler friends.
Occasionally, Mr. Thompson, his. old
partner, heard from him,, but the letter
was always enclosed to him througn-a
third party, so that .the runaway's
whereabouts remained unknown 'The
real name of the new Senator is John:
Mitchell Hippell. It appears that when
he went to Oregon he dropped his sur
name, or rather transposed his name, so
that it etocd John H . Mitchell. This
was for the purpose of more fcSfectually
concealing his whereabouts. The uu--happy
marriage which he contracted in
J " Sutler, was the main cause ( his mis
' ortunes. Three children were had by
" ''his wife,' one conceived outside of wedr'
f Ti lock, and two bom after his marriage.
The first he took with him in his flight.
:-- 'The others he left in this county," and
- has since supported. ; Further particu-
jars 01 vuib Biury were given in an iu
i J terview which your correspondent had
, , with CoL" .Thompson, of the firm f of
the preceptor, 01 young Hippie, as I
shall now call him, and afterward took
him into partnership. ..
THOMPSON'S STOBY. .
Tour correspondent . found Col.
'Thompson in fair office early last even
ma and. nnon the announcement of his
1 . business, Mr.- Thompson ; at once .ex
pressed his willingness to taije.. Mr.
Thompson is a man in the prime of life,
.r , of an T active, 5 enegetic type.7 is
' "well known in Pennsylvania1 politics,
,Zl having served' seYerat terms in the Hr-
risburg Legislature, . and acted one or
" two terms as Speaker of the House of
!'i Representatives.1 -' The conversation be
gan at once upon the subject of Mr;
Hippie,' alias Mitchell." r
nnrmnnondent You have heard.
doubtless, of the stories concerning the
- i f gentleraan- known - as Mr, Mitchell,
ii'''i-IInited'Sutes Senator from .Oregon.
First,! wish.to know.' from? you is Mr.
, . your form or law partner in this place?
Colonel Thompson Se is: " '
lo sf:2 ; O.-t-Then I should like 'from you a
"'"true history : of ' MK ! Hippie's! .experi-
fty encer hereii and whether the present-
stories circulated, about Oregon s inew
' Senator are true or not ' ' ..
'.. . r Gol. T. In part what has been con
cerning him is true, but the stories hay",
been highly eolered and- unless viewed
rrrrm a standpoint of a fufl knowledge
- of the case may lead to the prejudieeof
jf, Mr. Mitchell or. Hippie,, just yon
'please. I jwiOl tell you his storyaa 1
know it, and trust yon will publish my
Their parents owned . adjoining farnre,
for you must know John was a farmer's
son., . Iter family was a respectable one,
bnt one not remarable, certainly, not in
an intellectual way. : John and- this
girl,. Sarah Hoom, were much together,
and about this time 1 ;
1 i'5- r l tWPLE A S ANT GOSSIP
Was'arousedv ' Whether John ever did
any wrong to the girl I am unprepared
to say.' At any rate, while yet unmar
ried she became with child, and anetitu
ted proceedings., against John ' upon a
charge of -bastardy, claiming him as the
father. The result of . this i was that
J ohn married the girl.
C.-r Would he have married her if he
had not really been her seducer ?
" Uol. 1 . 1 ou can Bettie that as you
lik.e - You are asking me for facts that
I know in the case. J ohn married the
girl in 1857, I think ; this was upon
the advice of his father. Of course
the marriage that followed was a .
MOST UNHAPPY ONE. - " "
It cenld hardly have been different un
der the circumstances. Two children
were tbe result of this mairiage. The
first child the cause of the action against
John, was a girl named ' Jessie, t I
really believe that my old partner tried
to live with his ; wife," but her tastes
were of such a nature that there was
nothing in common between them. He
was educated, studious, and possessed
a ; vaulting amouion. - one could - not
sympatizo with him, and there - was a
perpetual discord. He said but little
of this to me, and seemed .resolved to
bear bis burden in silence. During tbe
winters of 1859 and 1860, 1 was Speak
er of the House ot Kepresentatives,
and was away most of the time. . John
looked after my business entirely. In
April, I860, 1 returned to my office. A
day or two after my arrival home, John
left the Office to go to Pittsburg, mere
ly saying that he was going away on
business, t 1 mi
HE NEVER KETUBNED, ....
As my partner. A short time after his
departure. I received a letter dated
"The Wide World." ,.It had no post
1 mar ny wmcn j. couiu tea wuere ue
mark by which I could tell where he
hehad gone away.' He said in it that
he could not live with bis wile; that he
was gojng .away where he would remain
undiscovered, and begin Hie over again.
He enclosed assignments ' to me of all
his 'property here, in satisfaction of
some $1,000 which be took, with'bim.
he said if -this was not enough to make
the $4,000 good he would make it so
louthe .yalue of, jveryjent,.. I f .,
1 3 2 2 X POBSTHLp.DEFi.L.CATION.
C- Colonel,; was that really in' the
nature of a defalcation 1 '
Cot T. It might be. . . "
C That is, if you had found Mr.
Hippie at the time, and had wished to
have an action, tor bim upon tbe ground
of defalcation, there might have, been
a. case made but - t ,
Col. T. There might have been, if
I had so desired. But 1 am well satis
fied there was no intention to defraud:
Mr, Hippie has since made good to me
the discrepancy Of 81,500.. . Right here
I - want to- - make", one-- point clear.
There was never-any compromise made
by me with creditors occasioned by my
partner's flighl The creditors '. of
Thompson Se.Hipplo were paid in full
all their claims against the- firm. r
r- WHY? OH, WHY 1 ( ViifV -i':
V c'm i Why 'was it, if Mr. Hippie had
confidence in you, he did not reveal his
plans to yqo, instead of running away
as he did. without giving you any warn
ing of his intent t J :4 , . -1
C!1. T. He was young and inexpe
rienced. He was made morbid by- his
unhappy marriage, and 1 doubtless was
afraid of . some obstacle being laid in
the way of hia leaving. -
THE PITTSBURG INTERVIEW.
C. About that interview you had
with him in Pittsburg last month 1 "': t
Col. T-I went to Pittsburg at his
request. . T took'dinner with him at the
Union depot hotel on Sunday the 20th
of April last.' ' I had been; in corres-
Eondence with him for some time, and
ad seen him several times since 1867.
There was no money difference, be
tween ns then A-All that was settled in
1867., Hippie felt that the one great
indiscretion of bis life, was the assumpi
tion of a. false, name. Probably he
Vffehd to talk'with -me'about Jit. At
"any. rate we did lalkWer his position,
and the certainty Jof his s(ory finally
coming out now that he had arisen, to a
position of 'public trust.-- I . advised
him to meet the story . boldly, and tell
the real truth of tbe case. I saw him bnt
a brief time, as after dinner he went on
his journey. , f , , . - s
j-For years you never knew where
he was 11 - ". "J - j - .
Col. T. No this Was doubtless only
another , one- of the - many-precautions
that Jobn took to prevent his ! wifp - fol
lowing kim,;"8 Bttbjeci upon which he is
; perfectly morbid. Hia wifo remained
at home part of the time. . She worked
also about "ia 'families." J She was at
one lime a charge upon 'this township.
Tbe occasion of this Was her being with
child, as was '-alleged, by some one on-
known to me.. The two children, left
rej)laced in the care - of John's
any fear of hw t wife, , who procured, a
divorce from, him (not he from, her, as
has been stated), some , three or ..four
(-years ago, from Mr, . B- P, Scott, .the
which' the divorce was granted was de
sertiou. '. The Oregon Senator has sipce
contributed at intervals, money for her
support, as well as before her divorce.
This seems to be the real facts in : the
case so' &r as they can be elicited here.
That John Hippel. JttitcheU committed
grave indiscretions in his youth, and
has since ' been severely puniebedv -
quite certain. He stands in tbe anoma
lous position in the United States Sen
ate as a Senator with an alias. Wheth
er this will redound to his credit, in
connection with the cause that led him
to assume it, will hardly be asserted by
