New York, Dec. 13.—Mrs. Chadwick
started lor Cleveland on the Buffalo
Limited, which left the Grand Central
station over the New York Central at
£ o’clock to-night. <
Before leaving she made a state
ment in which she declared she will
pay all her obligations, and that her
sole purpose in going is to face her
creditors. She said she could have ob
tained bail here if she had wished to,
and that one of the most prominent
men in the country had offered to-day
to go on 'her bond.
Mrs. Chadwick left here in custody
of United States Marshal Henkel and
Deputy Marshals Kumb and Kelker.
The train is scheduled to arrive in
Cleveland at 11:50 o’clock to-morrow
Before leaving the United States
marshal’s office for the station Mrs.
Chadwick, at the suggestion of her
counsel, Philip Carpenter, consented to
an interview with a number of news
paper men who were waiting. She was
reclining on a couch and seemed par
ticularly alert. She was the absolute
mistress of herself, and either smiled
as she made her statements or gave
way to an expression of bitterness.
She was gowned as she was when ar
“Many statements that have appear
ed about me are absolutely false,” she
began. “I have read statements in one
of two papers that are absolutely
false. I am physically and mentally
broken down. I am not in any condi
tion to make a statement.
Cable from Her Husband.
“It is not true that I cabled to Dr.
Chadwick this morning. Dr. Chadwick
cabled me this morning, and that ca
blegram will appear in the Cleveland
Plain-Dealer to-morrow morning.
“I am jgoip£ home for the sole pur
pose of facing my creditors and what
ever charges they have made against
me. I am going home voluntarily and
not because I could not obtain bail.
Since my arrest I have had offers of
bail from many prominent persons.
Isn’t that so, Mr. Carpenter?" she
asked, turning to her counsel.
“Yes: that is true.” he replied.
“To-day bail was offered to me by
one of the most prominent men in
Cleveland by telegram,” said Mrs.
Chadwick. "He said that a wire
would bring him here to furnish any
amount of bail that would be wanted.
Isn’t that so, Mr. Carpenter?” she
He said her statement was true.
Falling Over-Themselves to Go Bail.
“I have had at least half a dozen
prominent persons offer me bail to
day,” continued the woman. “There
was no reason why I could not get
bail; none at all.
“I want it distinctly understood t'hat
f am going home simply because it is
the place where I should be.
“I shall not give bail, when I get
in Cleveland. I have the best motive
in the world for not doing so. The
history of this case from beginning to
end will soon be published in a cer
"You will call names, won’t you,
Mrs. Chadwick?” interrupted Mr.
"I shall use names,” corrected Mrs.
Chadwick. “I promised to give out my
story, and it may" take months to get
it out.' -It may be, however, that it
will be published to-morrow, next week
or In a month. But certainly not un

Said She Gave Them the Slip.
“I have not tried to flee from any
one—not even from the newspaper
men,” she continued, with a smile.
“When all you young men thought
that I was sick at the Holland House,
i walked right by you and went to
the Fifth Avenue Hotel, and alter at

a cab back to the Holland House, and

"I am not here to be questioned,"
she replied. "I have nothing to say

about any one else. I want to say em

my return home because I thought It
best to wait and see what the grand

“If the grand Jury had Indicted me

Just the same. For the past week I

"That's so,” said the lawyer.

her removal to Cleveland.
Theu Boarded tlie Train.
Mrs. Chadwick was hysterical when
she returned to the marshal’s office,
and it required the combined efforts
of the marshal and Mr. Carpenter to
soothe her. After her meeting with
the reporters Mrs. Chadwick waited in
the marshal’s office until time to leave
for the Grand Central Station. When
the carriage reached the Hotel Breslin
the party stopped and Marshal Hen
kel went into the hotel. He returned
in a few minutes with the maid,
Freda, who carried several boxes and
bundles. She, with Marshal Henkel
and one of the deputies, accompanied
Mrs. Chadwick to the station. The
tickets had been procured in the aft
ernoon and the party went at once to
where the Buffalo Limited was wait
ing and took seats in a drawing room
compartment in the last car, which is
also equipped with berths.
GREAT CROWD WILL
SEE MRS. CHADWICK.
Cleveland In Anxiously Awaiting
Cleveland, 0.. Dec. 13.—The home
coming of Mrs. Cassie L. Chadwick
to-morrow will create more excitement
in this city than any event of recent
years. The probability of a tremen
dous crowd at the depot has compelled
Chief of Police Koehler to arrange de
tails of officers to restrain the crowd,
and United States Marshal Chandler,
to whose offices she will be taken im
mediately upon her arrival, has de
termined to station a force of deputies
around his office to prevent the throng
from taking the room by storm.
The prospects to-night are that Mrs.
Chadwick will be compelled to go to
jail unless she give bail to the amount
of $40,000, and she may be asked to
furnish security as high as $52,500.
The county grand jury resumed its
investigation of the affairs of Mrs.
Chadwick, but returned no indictment
against her. notwithstanding*a report
to the contrary. Prosecutor Keeler
announced, however, that the appear
ance of Iri Reynolds, secretary and
treasurer of the Wade Park Bank, be
fore the jury to give evidence of the
woman’s transactions, had materially
strengthened the case against her.
It Is understood that an indictment
relating to the uttering and forging
of the $5,000,000 note on deposit in the
Wade Park Bank, which was the prin

tigating body to-day, has been draft

Washington, Dec. 13.—Sitting as a
grand jury the House of Representa
tives to-day, with almost full member
ship, and after more than five hours’
discussion, to the exclusion of all oth
er business, adopted a resolution pro
viding for the impeachment of Judge
Charles Swayne of the Northern Dis
trict of Florida for "high crimes and
mtsdemea nors. ”
The case against the respondent was
clearly set out by Mr. Palmer of Penn
sylvania, chairman of the sub-commit
tee of the Judiciary Committee, which
heard the evidence in the case. He
carefully dissected the evidence bear
ing on each of the specifications, and
said that if it were found that Judge
Swayne had done well he should be
vindicated, but if he had done ill, he
should be sent to trial, “where his ex
cuses and apologies may or may not
He was followed by Messrs. Clayton
of Alabama, Powers of Massachusetts,
Henry of Texas and Lamar of Florida,
each of whom in most vigorous terms
advocated impeachment. Messrs. Gll
lett of California and Littlefield of
Maine in speeches, opposed their col
leagues on ail the specifications, ex
cept the one as to the account render
ed to the government by Judge Swayne
for traveling expenses.
Throughout the session intense in
terest was shown by members. Fol
lowing the adoption of the impeach
ment resolution, a provision was made
for the appointment of five members
to notify the Senate of the impeach
ment, and for a committee of seven to
present the case to the Senate.
To-day’s proceedings were the first
of their kind since the impeachment in
1876 of Gen. W. W. Belknap, who was
Secretary of War in President Grant's
Head the Specifications.
f After Mr. Hemenway of Indiana,
from the Committee on Appropria
tions, reported fcp urgent deficiency
bill and gave nomt that he would call
it up to-morrow, Mr. Palmer of Penn
sylvania, from the Judiciary Commit
tee, called up the -Swayne resolution.
Speaker Cannon compelled silence
while it was read, remarking that ev
ery member should hear it. Mr. Pal
mer then read the specifications
against the judge, upon which the
committee had based its action.
In support of the charge of misbe
havior Mr. Palmer said the evidence
showed that out of each year Judge
Swayne spent On an average of 212
days somewhere else, neither in his
district holding court, nor outside of
his district holding court. Judge
Swayne, he said, never voted in Flor
ida, never registered there and never
lived there in any proper sense of the
Mr. Palmer then turned his atten
tion to a review of the evidence taken
before the committee, the main fea

Was a Fire of Qnestlons.
As Mr. Palmer detailed the various
amounts paid by Judge Swayne for
board and necessary expenses, he was
subjected to ‘a fire of questions by sev
eral members. A question by Mr.
Adams, of Pennsylvania, if it was the
custom of the other Judges to accept
the maximum of $lO a day for ex
penses, rourel Mr. Palmer, who answer
ed with an emphatic, "No,” adding
thht if it was the custom it would be
no evidence in this case. "We are.”
he said with emphasis, “trying tlio
case of Judge Charles Swayne and
not all the other Judges of the United
Replying to Mr. Lacey of lowa. Mr.
Palmer said the committee did not look
into the question of whether or not
the fate of $lO a day was a fixed al
lowance, not thinking it relevant.
The charge against Judge Swayne of
swearing that his expenses were $lO a
day when in fact these expenses were
proven to be considerably less, he
said, stands unexpfained and unde
fended 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, Mr. Clayton of,
Alabama quoted from a decision of the
Court of Claims regarding what may
be regarded as proper expenses of a
Wonld Ben Sorry Day.
After concluding his resume of the
evidence Mr. Palmer said that if Judge
Swayne had done well he 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 excuses and apologies may
or may not receive consideration.” If
the House was of the opinion that
Judge Snayne's conduct had been com
mendable, “let him go soot free.”
“But.” he added, amid impressive si
lence, “in my Judgment it will be a
sorry day for the republic when such
behavior is commended by the repre
sentatives of the people.”
'The courts, he declared, are the
refuge of the weak, defenseless and
oppressed, and upon their integrity and
purity depends the preservation of life,
liberty and property.
The fact that there has been no
impeuchment of a Judge for more than
seventy years was sufficient evidence
of the efficiency, integrity and honor
of the courts. Mr. Palmer clossd by
saying: “That they may be kept pure
and free from all reproach Is my pray
er and tny hope, and for that reason I
shall vote to impeach the Hon. Charlo*
Without distinction ms to party, Mr.
Palmer waa loudly applauded as be
took his seat.

The Court of Appeals announced that
after considering every point made by
counsel, no error had been found in
the proceedings in the trial for which
the Judgment ought to be reversed.
The opinion called attention to re

that the only juror who hung out in
the star route trials subsequently was
indicted for bribery, and stated that
if the lower court had not interrupted
this line of argument, as It had done,
the case would have been reversed.

He had been through the endowment

Nearly all of the obligations were that

George F. Bromhall, president of the
Brigham Young University, testified
that he had two wives, married before

always urged them to obey the law.
Josiah Hickman, a teacher in Brig

for ten years he lived with two wives
and had children by both of them. He
said he had taken no steps to conform
to law in relation to marriages.
“Then as you understand It, you are
not legally married to your present
wife?” asked Mr. Tayler.
The witness said he took the woman,

Budn Pest, Dec. 13.—Hoping to at
tract the sympathy of the populace the
members of tlie opposition in the
House of Deputies met early to-day,
and headed by Count Apponyl, former
Premier Banfty, Francis Kossuth and
other leaders, marched in procession
to the Parliament building. The pub
lic. however, displayed scant interest
and only a few idlers cheered them.
At the entrance they found the po

to enter singly. He was roughly
thrust aside and maltreated, whilst
the procession, dripping and with mud

over the gorgeous carpeting and ad

a roar of execration and ordered them
to quit the chamber. Acting on In

but immovable, which so incensed the
opposition deputies that they boxed

The deputies fought their way to
the platform, tore it to pieces, scat

atoms the codes of law on the presi

chairs and destroyed the platform and
distributed the broken pieces among
the deputies, who thus armed, attacked
the guards, and after a brief fight,
drove them from the house. The desks
were then torn down and the Interior

their work of destruction by erecting
a model of a galloivs from broken
benches, from which an effigy of Pre

Soon afterwards Premier Tisza, with
other members of the Hungarian min

were greeted with deafening shouts of
abuse, “Scoundrel” and "Rogue” be
