London, Jan. 13. General disappoint

Columbus, Jan. ltt. Indirect charges
of bribery in the United States senator
ial contest which came to a close last
Wednesday, have been repeatedly made
since then, but only recently have they
assumed sufficient definiteness to be
worthy of consideration.- An evening

Representative John J? . Uaugherty, of

Sherman tor his vote in the caucus. In

question of privilege and denied the
charge, asking the house to investigate
