What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

The last straw came, t\°.wever, when I learned that the federal,,grand jury was |>ropnring to indict iny. son, wbo had written the agreement between Senator Mit­ chell and myself, on the typewriter, for perjury and when I learned that the agents of the government, were in ty&seMion of farts, proving that the document w*s. not signal March 5, 1$01, hB l.haye sworn, but. that it had been- prepayed apd signed last De­ cember.” “ Jndge Tapner, do you intend, to testify against Senator Mitchell?” was asked. VYes, I expect to be celled as a wit- nr8e in the case against Mr. Mitchell, apd will tell the whole truth re­ garding the business of the firm wHhont rpgsrd to consequences.” Senator! Mitohel, after his dramalic denial of guilt.and bitter denunciation of his accusers, in tbe U. S. Senate, went back to Oregon, in Becemher. last, and induced his partner to join him ip pre­ paring and dating bark, a ne,w. partner­ ship agreement and substitute it for the origina) agreement, under whi?h the firm had been working for four years. Judge Tanner was influenced, not only, to do this, but to go before the Grand J.ury and swear falsely to shield hjs partnei. Nothing can. better, illustrate the tr wakfnipg of the public conscience, than the recent work of the federal grand ju-y ip.

Aii outpouring of maudlin sympathy .for\.the' venerable Senator, is now in or- der.and is to be expected, bfc t^ople,.everywhere, will applaud an .administration, that recognizes tinetion,between rogues of high and low degree.

The oaly man. who fear> to trust the peof^e with the powers they wiouldje serve to themselves by this law, are those who. have been successfully exploiting the poople through incompc tent and vengl men,elected to the several legislatures, who either lacked the sense; and experience or the morel strength to resist the arguments, the favors money, of these men and thuir high R.
