WASHINGTON CITY, Jan. 7.—If the claims of Contestant Tlicwbe in his cnsn ngninst Cnr- lisle ore suspcpptilile of proof it would indicate lhnt lliu liouue will have another oloction of npeakers on its Hands, provided tha decision was In the line of tbe said proof. Thoebsand hia attorney, Sypher, wore before the election commitloo Friday and presented the alleged baals of tbe contest, asking that testimony might by beard on the matter. To do this they preferred that a sub-committee Visit the district and take tbe witnesses' statements on the ground. Theypra- sented several affidavits in support of their statements, and the committee had these papers before them when they went into exi'Cutive session after hearing Thoebe nnd Bypher. No agreement was reached at Friday's session, however. Thoebe's charges in brief are that Carlisle wns so plainly defeated that the returns were purposely held back and "fixed" by his friends, who had all tho election m.ichlnery i in their hands; that Carlislu and bis friends | admitted on the^nlght after the election that , be was beaten and Tboebe elected; that the ', returns were so plainly altered that they ' showed it on their face, the interpolations ' being boldly and clumsily done. It is also , claimed that the attorney originally em- i ployed by Thoebe had boon manipulated by Carlisle's backers, so that lie "gave bis client away," and did not attempt in any proper i degree to secure the evidence of fraud that lay right under his nose. In fact, if Thoobe Is to be believed, the return of Carl.sle from his district as representative was as bad n piece of political "skullduggery" as has ever disgraced tho annals of American politics. All this has to bo i proved, however. The cbargea cause a good | deal of surprise to the Democrats. They expected to see the case brushed aside without troublo, but are a good doal disturbod by its serious character. The indications ere that the .committee will divide on strict party lines, the Republicans demanding a reopening ot the case, and the Democrats opposing it on "the" ground" tbat even If all that is claimed Is proven there would not be enough changes to unseat Carlisle. In going over the details of the case Mr. Byphor said that at Covington on election night it was evident that Carlisle was defeated by over 2,000 votes, and tho Judges of election sent for Carlisle, and after consulting with his friends, telegraphed to outside counties to withhold the returns. ' Continuing, Sypher said that it was a fact tbat the returns of the six outlying counties were withheld for live days and that Carlisle had publicly confessed that he was defeated. "You do not attach much importance to this pointf said Heard. "No, I jmt mention it," replied Sypher. "Mr. Hayes, I think, confessed defeat at first," said Hoard. "Yes," replied Bypher, "and I think he ought to. hove stuck to it." . Bypber said that Carllnle has failed of election through noglect. In some precincta no tickets were printed until 3 o'clock, and there was virtually no election held in some precincts. In one case only the throe judges voud—two for Carlisle and one for Thoebe. In Boone county ZOO votes wore cast on election day, but the returns flaally showed 670 votes. In Carroll county there was practically no election. He could show that voters had failed to go to the polls on election day, but when they found that Carlisle bad been defeated they voted the next day. Not only was this tbe case in Carroll county, but also in every one of the outlying counties. After the election seven ot Carlisle's friends met In conference at the federal building to endeavor to save Carlisle. They sent for an eighth gentleman, a prominent and honorable gentleman, Col R. • W. Nelson. They told him that Carlisle had been defeated, and they wanted him to confer with them to devise some means of changing the result Thereupon, said Bypher, CoL Nelson took his hat and left, declaring tbat if they were up to anything of the sort they must count him out. "Carlisle dare not contradict this gentleman," said Sypher. "He Is a Democrat and a Kentucky gentleman of aa high standing as Mr. Carlisle." . Touching Carlisle's refusal to join him in taking testimony, Sypher remarked! "Ha did not dare meet me, and be dare not now go into that district and take testimony." Bypher also said he had a witness to prove tbat a relative of Carlisle purchased Wood, Thoebe's first counsel, for $2M). In cloning B/pher said the speaker of the bouse was the third officer in rank in this country, but be was not big enough to occupy that seat upon a fraudulent title, nor was the Democratic party strong enough to maintain him in tbat position, "If Mr. Carlisle is the honest man I think he is," said Bypher, "he will ojme down out of bis seat and ask for the appointment of a committee to go to Kentucky and search the oise." Tboebe was next allowed to make a ten- minute statement to' the committee. He said that he was born In the same country as tbe speaker, forty-three yearn ago. H« said his counsel, Wood, had told him on several occasions that money could be made out of the cose. Other persons had told him tbe same thing. Two Democratic workers, one of them the witness' brother-in-law, had called upon him and had remarked that it bb would not push the case he could make money out of It,'and $1,000 was a good thing to have. It the case was reopaned it would be found that be was elected by 600 majority. He did not want this seat if he was defeated by one vote, but if tbe committee refused to reopen the case tn« T ~ workingmeu would say it was because ht Lamp ffhoebe) was not a Democrat Let the com- .similar mittoe show tbe toiling millions either that ! Tboebe was elected or was not elected. Tbat was all they asked. They wanted fair play. If tbe case was decided against him he would go back to his factory and work, but, significantly, be would not quit voting. Cooper—If things are as you say, what la the we of voting! Tboebe—That is what I say. Sherman Invited to Boston. WASHINGTON CITY, Jan. 7.—8.

OLLIDED ON A TRESTLE. TWO FREIGHTS COME TOGETHER ON THE CANADIAN PACIFIC. DUN ON THE OPENING YEAR. A Fair Business at AH Points, with Fewer Failures Than Bxpeotod. NEW YORK, Jan. 7.—R..G. Dun & Ca 1 * weekly review of trade says: The post broken week has not boon one of great activity, and the year, opens with some reaction in most of the markot*. Tbe Reading strike has bocomfl moro serious than was oxpocted; the miners' committee claims that 30,OuO miners and 13,000 railroaimon are out, and though the statement Is plAraly exaggerated as to tbe railway hands, tno suspension of mining appears to bo nearly*, bomplete in the Reading, as in the Lehlgh fusions. In spite of December's largo output,''stocks at tidewater are low, and stoppage- of supplies of coal threatens to close som$!*ianufaoturlng works. Tho iron market Vjir already distinctly stiller because of • po&lble closing of. furnaces, and tho Thomas company has not yet announced Iis pricos. ' All tbe speculative markets have experienced some reaction, except for tin, which is firm at X a cent advance, and lead, which is quoted slightly lower. Stocks have 170,000.000 distributed In dividends aud in tercst, January 1st, would lift pricw; an Increased demand for good bonds appears. • The first week of the year opens with fewer failures than were anticipated, and with fair business for the season at all points reporting. Money Is rather closer at Kansas City and some lens Important points, and the strike, with Ita uncertainties, explains slightly higher rates at Philadelphia, while at Boston the smallnnss ot transactions is unusual, But the money markets are generally easier, and complaint of collections la leas frequent Dividends declared by banks and other financial insHtntlons were generally up to expectations, but much of the money appears to have been anticipated In previous investments. Next to the iron Industry, which hcs/tatos, the woolen manufacturers seems to have moat uncertainty. The raw material has declined about 1 cont in December and 2 to 8 cents alnce July, though coarse wool yields least and the largest decline has been in fine floece. . The buslnem failures during the week are: 250 for the United States, and 23 for Canada, against 271 for the United States, and 28 for Canada the fume week last year.

Business men throoghout the coal regions say that the miners were never more determined than they are to-day, and will resist the destruction of their organization to the bitter end. They say it will be the greatest battle on record, and should it last any length of time it will be impossible to even estimate its consequences.

' FALL RIVKB, Mass., Jan. 7.—About one week ago Superintendent Kershaw, of the a&ts-house, sent in bli resignation, which was promptly accepted. Tbe cause for hia action, within a few days of the end of hif term, gave rise to numerous conjectures, especially as he left tbe .city. It now appears that bis flight was occasioned by fear of arrest for criminal intercourse with a ward of the state who formerly lived at .the almshouse. Kershaw is over 60 years of age, and has a wife and grown up children. Ills IlolluoM Deeply Moved.

This question is a momentous one with tbe labor organizations. The railroaders object to the mining of coal under these clr- cumstoncee, while tbe miners say they have got all they asked for and want to work. If tbe new issue be forced aud the men be not permitted te work at the advance, the strike is positively lost to the men, for hundreds of knights will continue working -regardless of consequences. The only information elicited as to the result of tbe conference of local officials at Philadelphia Thursday was that It bad been decided to remain quiet, and let eveuta shape themselves. No special efforts are to be made to start any collieries. The company is not well pleased at individual companies conceding the advance and going to work. The Fotteville Merchants'exchange has decided to cease selling to any customers out of employment In consequence of the strike. This will ba a terrible blow to the strikers, but it is the merchants' only salvation. They have gone through strikes before, and know that bankruptcy awaits those who continue the crodit system. One merchant said a tbe meeting: "I'll sell $30,uOO worth of 1887 strike accounts for $30." Had B Weakness For Frenchmen.
