(Indorsed:) Exhibit D to the deposition of W. O. De Vay.

WILLIAM B. BURFORD, being first duly sworn, testified as follows:

Direct examination by Mr. WILSON, attorney for Mr. English:
Question. State you name and age. —Answer. William B. Burford; age, 36.
O. You reside in the city of Indianapolis?-A. Yes, sir.
Q. How long have your resided there?-A. Since 1867.

Q. What is your business?-A. Lithographer, blank-book manufacturer, printer, and stationer.

Q. How long have you been engaged in that business?-A. Since 1861.

Q. Were you in the city of Indianapolis at the time of the Congressional election on November 7, 1882; and, if you were, did you attend any precinct where voting was done?-A. I was.

Q. Did you attend any precinct?-A. Yes, sir.

Q. Did you see the Democratic, Republican, and National tickets voted at that election ?-A. I did.

Q. Here are three tickets which have been made exhibits as a part of the evidence of Mr. De Vay, and I show you the one that is headed “Republican ticket.” Did you see that ticket voted at that election?-A. I saw a ticket similar to this. I could not say that this is the identical ticket.

Q. So far as you know, was it similar in all particulars ?-A. Yes, sir.

Q. I show you now the ticket that is headed “ Democratic ticket.", Did you see that voted at that election ?--A. I make the same answer to this that I did to the other.

Q. One similar to it in all respects ?-A. Yes, sir.

Q. Now I show you the one headed “National ticket," and ask you the same question as to that.-A. Yes, sir; this appears to be the same.

Q. The same answer to that question as to the others?-A. Yes, sir.

Q. Who were the candidates for Congress on the Democratic and Republican tickets at that election ?-A. Mr. Peelle and Mr. English.

Q. Mr. English on the Democratic ticket, and Mr. Peelle on the Republican?-A. Yes, sir.

Q. Was there any figure, embellishment, or distinguishing mark at the head of this Republican ticket or elsewhere to designate it?

(Objected to as immaterial and incompetent, for the reason that the ticket will show for itself.)

A. There was.

Q. Was the ticket, or any part of the Republican ticket offered here, engraved ?-A. I think the head was engraved.

Q. Is the material on which that ticket is printed plain white print paper ?
(Objected to as incompetent, for the reason that the ticket will show for itself.)
A. It is what I know to be plate paper.
Q. Is it on plain white paper ?
(Objected to as leading.)
A. It is not.
Q. Is it on plain white book paper ?
(Objected to as leading.)
A. It is not.

Q. Is that material on which the Republican ticket is printed known in the trade as either print, writing, or book paper ?

(Objected to as immaterial.) A. It is not. Q. Do you buy it or see it as either print, writing, or book paper?-A. I do not.

Q. If a man would come to your store and ask to buy plain white paper, would you show him such material as this Republican ticket is printed on?

(Objected to as incompetent and immaterial.) A. I would not.

Q. Do you call the material upon which this Republican ticket is printed plain white paper?

(Objected to as leading.)

À. The question does not go far enough. It is plain white paper, but it does not go far enough to make an answer.

Q. Let us hear an explanation of what you mean.-A. This paper is evidently plain white, but the question does not say what kind of plain white paper. A man might have several kinds. He might have plain white writing paper, plain white book paper, plain white news paper or print paper, and plain white plate paper-any one of those four.

Q. Is that plain white plate paper ? (Objected to as leading)

[graphic]

A. Yes, sir. Q. What is it called at the manufactory where it is made? (Objected to as incompetent.) A. Plate paper. Q. Do you know what it is called in the catalogue issued by the principal dealers ? (Objected to as incompetent and immaterial.) A. Plate paper. Q. What do you call it in your bills of invoice and on your books? (Objected to as immaterial.) A. Plate paper.

Q. Did you sell any of this plate paper to the Journal Publishing Company before the said election?

(Objected to as immaterial.) A. I did.

Q. In making the entry of the sale on your book did you call it writing paper, print paper, book paper, plain white paper, or plate?

(Objected to as immaterial.)
A. It was charged and billed as plate paper.
Q. What is such material generally sold for?
(Objected to as immaterial.)
A. It is principally used for lithographic work.
Q. And it is generally sold for that?-A. Yes, sir.

Q. Did you make an entry as to the weight of this paper that you sold to the Journal
Company?
(Objected to as immaterial.)
A. I did.
Q. What was that weight?-A. One hundred pounds.

Q. What was the number of sheets you sold, and what was the price?-A. Six hundred and twenty-five sheets, and the price was $18.20, if I remember correctly.

Q. Eighteen dollars and twenty cents for what?-A. Six hundred and twenty-five sheets.

Q. Do you do a lithographing business?-A. I do.

Q. Do you ever sell such material as this Republican ticket is printed on as plain white writing paper, or as plain white print paper, or as plain white book paper ?

(Objected to as immaterial.) A. I do not. Q. Do you ever sell it as plain white paper at all, or do you sell it as plate paper ? (Objected to as leading and immaterial.) A. We sell it as plate paper.

A. Does a mill that makes print paper ever make this lithographic plate or this plate paper?

(Objected to as immaterial.) A. I think not.

Q. In your long experience did you ever know plate paper to be used for election tickets before?

(Objected to as immaterial.) A. Vever.

Q. What is the weight, if you know, of a ream of plain white print paper, size of sheets 25 by 38, and what is it worth per ream, or what was it worth per ream at the time of said election? (Objected to as incompetent.) A. The standard weight is 30 pounds; worth about $2 per ream. Q. What is the weight of a ream of plain white book paper of the same size? (Objected to as incompetent and immaterial.) A. The standard is 45 pounds.

Q. Do you recollect what it was worth at the time of the election ?-A. Worth about 83.80, according to the quality. I will qualify that a little. Book paper might run from $3.80 to $4.50.

Q. What is the weight of a ream of plate paper such as this Republican ticket that you have looked at is printed upon ?-A. You mean of a relative size ?

Q. Yes, sir; 25 by 38.
(Objected to as immaterial.)
A. About 100 pounds.
Q. What was it worth per ream at the time of the election, if you know?
(Objected to as immaterial.)

A. About $14 or $14.50. That would depend upon how much profit a man wanted to make.
