JOHN WILSON. (Indorsed :) Exhibit No. 4 to deposition of John Carlon. P. C. Hendrioks, N. P.

JOAN J. Curtis, being first duly sworn, testified as follows:

Direct examination by Mr. WILSON: Q. Your name, age, and residence.-A. John J. Curtis; age 27 ; residence 39 Ash street, Indianapolis, Ind.

Q. What is your politics 1-A. I am a Republican.

Q. What is your business -A. I am connected with Bowen, Stewart & Co., booksellers and paper dealers, and I have charge of the paper department there.

Q: I call your attention to a ticket marked Exhibit No. 1, to the deposition of John Carlon and headed “Republican ticket," for governor Albert T. Porter, and I will ask you to please state what that ticket is printed upon ?

(Objected to as not rebuttal.)
À. I would call that a cheap flat paper.

Q. What is flat paper 1-A. Flat paper is writing paper; paper finished for writing on with ink.

Q. I call your attention to Exhibit No. 4 to the deposition of John Carlon headed " Democratic ticket,” for governor Franklin Landers. Tell me, please, what material that ticket is printed on 1–A. That is No. 2 book-a cheap grade of book paper.

Q. I call yonr attention to Exhibit No. 2 to John Carlon's deposition headed “Democratic Ticket," with a flag on it, and for Franklin Landers for governor, and I will ask yon what material that is printed on :-A. I would call that a book paper.

Q. What number ; do you know 1-A. It is a better grade than the other; I do not think it comes for a better grade than No. 2 paper, though.

Q. I call your attention to a ticket headed “ Democratic Ticket,” John G. Shanklin, and marked Exhibit No. 4 to the deposition of Mr. Ransdell, and I will ask you what material that is printed upon 1-That is No. 2 book.

Q. What is Exhibit S to Mr. Gordon's deposition headed “Democratic Ticket I”A. That is a book paper.

Q. What grade would you say that was 1–A. With the ticket folded up that way it is pretty hard to tell whether it is a No. 1 or a No. 2. I would call that a good grade of No. 2. It should be perfectly smooth to tell.

Q. I call your attention to a ticket headed “Democratic ticket” for Winfield Scott Hancock, marked Exhibit E to the deposition of William Wallace; I will ask you what is that material, if you know, upon which that ticket is printed ?-A That is book paper.

Q. Do you know the number of that; could you tell what number of book paper that is 1-A. I cannot tell, it is so soiled. It looks like a good No. 2.

Q. I hand you a ticket headed “ Republican ticket,” and marked Exhibit F to the deposition of William Wallace, and voted for James A. Garfield for President and Chester A. Arthur for Vice-President; what is the material on which that ticket is printed? And I also hand you Exhibit No. 3 to the deposition of John Carlon headed

Republican ticket,” national campaign, James A. Garfield, and you can compare the two; one of them is fresh and the other is soiled ; and I band you this ticket marked Exbibit No. 3 to the deposition of D. M. Ransdell, for secretary of state Isaac S. Moore.-A. I believe I would call that a flat paper. This sample is so folded that I would have to compare them to see if they were the same ticket.

Q. And I now hand you the ticket marked Exhibit No. 3 to deposition of D. M. Ransdell, for secretary of state, Isaac S. Moore, and Exhibit 6 to the deposition of Henry C. Adams, headed “Republican ticket," for secretary of state, Emanuel R. Hawn, and I will ask you to take the Republican tickets you just looked at, and state what difference there is, if any, in the bulk and quality of those four tickets; and in specifying, please name them as Exhibits so and so. I ask you as to the bulk and thickness of these tickets, how do they differ 1-A. There is considerable difference in the paper used.

Q. How about it as compared with the Democratic tickets—the four which I bave shown yon; is there more difference between the Democratic tickets or more differ. ence between the Republican tickets, respectively 1-A. There is more difference in the weight of these Republican tickets; they vary in weight.

Q. How do the Republican tickets compare as to uniformity in width 1–A. There are two of them about the same width, and there is a little over one-eighth of an inch difference between one of them and the others.

Q. Two of them correspond substantially in weight :-A. Yes, sir.
Q. As to the finish—the sizing-how do i hey compare !– A. Two of them are a flat

Q. What is a flat paper finish 1–A. An extra hard finish to use for writing paper, to write with ink.

Q. That gives it what is popularly termed a glazed finish 1-A. Yes, sir.
Q. What two are those 1-A. Exhibit No. 3.
Q. That is, the national ticket for Garfield for President 1-A. Yes, sir.
Q. And the State ticket for Governor Porter in 1880 1-A. Yes, sir.

paper finish.
