The capture of Van Leuven's tin box containing the incriminating pa* pera on the strength of which the pros* ecution was begun^ was quite a sensation at the time when it occurred, and so far-reaching were its consequences that it became the occasion of angry dispute between the government commissioner and attorneys on the one hand and Van Leuven's counsel on the other, which has been revived since the trial. As a last resort to stave off the trial as long as possible, Special Examiner Waite, of St Paul and E. W. Goodner, now of ^Igona, were indicted, and it looked fOr a while as though it was the prosecutors who were going to be prose'cuted. The charges were easily disposed of,' and the parties will probably not be pu6lip'r>ny further an- uoyance,but attorneys Ef win andSmith have carried their tin box 0ght jnto the newspapers, and it is in answer to their attacks that Special Examiner Waite gives in the Minneapolis Journal his story of how the box of damaging papers came into his -possession. 'Mr. Waite says: Early in 1898, in the course Of one of my ordinary inquiries into the merits of the claim of .an applicant for pension residing in this city, I came into possesion of information tending: to show that Mr. Van Leuven, wlip was tjhe attorney in the case, was conducting his business by methods which were dishonest and irregular. The facts were duly reported to the bureau aha I was instructed to.make an investigation of his ways of doing business. There was then no special reason to think he had''been guilty of criminal offenses, and the objective point of my inquiry was in'erely to determine whether he oughft'OT ought not to be permitted to prap'gfce af; an attorney before tup interior, department. I wenc to. -Lime „ ^pi'lbjs'djO^Mayi>22,1893, j taking •with m^Ei^W'lQoddner,, of "Bt?Paul. ! Mr. Goodner Syas'then the stenographer' of the"Unit6 l d, States marshal' in St. Paul, and,was a'.deputy marshal in thisadistrict. ;",He accompanied me not as aTdeputy nia:qshal, for he had no .authprity as such in Iowa, but merely aS a stenographer and typewriter. On the 23d-we called on Mr. Van Leuven <at nis office. I stated 1 to him the object of-my visit, for which, by the way, be had beer^ 1 already prepared through information .1 urnished by friends an Washington. v lie prpfessed great wijl- ingness to submit to an investigation, and to" place his office and its files at ,my disposal. I began by' taking a ^sworn statement from one of his clerks, from whi&h it was evident that if I was to get-at the facts .in question some extraordinary methods must be employed, as.careful precaution had 'been taken to suppress the truth. Again I asked Mr. Van Leuven if I was correct in understanding that he desired me to have free access to all p'apers relating to hip 'business, and on receiving emphatic 'assurance that he /did,, Ir.topk .frpmvhisVyauJt two,, small tiiprimk.e, ^vWoh I\asked him to open.

Mr. \Vaite tells how he went to t)u> buque |ttid laid the case before the assistant-district attorney at that place, Who advised the arrest of Mr, Van LeiiVetrand Dr. Kessell, which Was effected by Mr t Goodner.
