TOO MANY bKi;i.inoNs.
Mr. I Toar's resolution for the investiga
tion of the Payne election was lost by a
vote of yeas 17, nays 44.
Captain Leonard Whitney, special agent
of the Western Union Telegraph company
in Washington, died at his residence in this
city this evening.
The presidential party returned from
Albany this afternoon.
Washington, July 23. Mr. Vest in
presenting a batch of petitions, got up by
the Knights of Labor, reniaiked that the
signatures all appeared to be in the same
handwriting and that he presumed from
the explanation of Mr. Van Wyck a few
days ago that these were copies.
Mr. Hoar remarked that the rules of the
senate prevented the presentation of any
petitions except original.
The chair sustained the point made ly
Mr. Hoar, but said he did not feel at liberty
to reproach senators for presenting such pe
titions although in doing so they were vio
lating the rules.
Mr. Vest said he did not propose to vio
late any rule of the senate, but he did not

the right of petition. He now presented
these petitions with the statement that in

The senate took up the Payne case and
was addressed by Mr. Call in opposition to
Mr. Ilawley argued in favor of investi
gation. Mr. Evarts closed the debate in an argu
ment against further investigation, "lie
quoted, as presenting impregnable propo
sitions, the following paragraphs from the
report signed by himself and Messrs. Logan
and Teller: "The only constitutional rights,
powers and duties which can sustain or
properly induce an investigation, such as is
presented for the consideration of the sen
ate by the honorable house of representa
tives of the State of Ohio, arise from two
opposite and independent clauses of the
constitution. By the first clause of section
5 of article 1 of the constitution, each house
of congress is made the judge of the elec
tion returns and qualifications of its incm
Iters. By the second clause of the same sec
tion, each house may, with the concurrence
of two-thirds, cxla mcmlicr." As these
two ends alone limit the basis and object of
any investigation proposed, either for in
validating the election of a senator or of
expelling from the senate a duly elected
and qualitied mcmlxa- of it. A scrutiny of
the grounds, in fact, upon which action is
demanded in any ease arising from
the senate, requires an ascertainment
whether the scope of the proposition and
testimony presented or reasonably assured,
would justify the ultimate action of the
senate under one or the other of these
clauses. He quoted Senator Payne's letter
to the chairman of the Ohio" legislative
committee, inviting and challenging the
most thorough and rigid scrutiny and "offer
ing for inspection hi-7 private correspond
ence and accounts, and Mr. CowgilFs reply
that if there was any testimony lending to
inculpate Mr. Payne in any degree with
any questionable transaction his request
would be acceeded to. Could any person,
he asked, require a more early, a more
prompt, a more universal projKteition from
the senators? The fact that the Ohio legis
lative committee did not call on Mr. Payne
was proof that it did not consider there was
anything lefore it which required his ex
aminaiton. Kef erring to the extracts from Demo
cratic newspapers which had been presented
by Messrs. Hoar and Frve, Mr. Evans
stated that these editorials were all pub
lished immediately after the election when
all Ohio was cray, and senators might
talk till they w ere hoarse about the power
and enforcement and value of this j-ower-fnl
testimony, but it was two years ol'I,
and w hen it was gathered up by the opjxs
site party the case" was in a different situa
tion. Mr. Hoar said he would not sav the
adoption of the majority report would be a
disgraceful act, because that would not be
parliamentary, courteous or proper; but he
would say looking at the truth as it was
given him to see it, that it would be the
most unfortunate act in the history of the
This closed the debate and the senate
proceeded to the vote.
The first vote was on the resolution of
Messrs. Hoar and Frye, for a further in
vestigation, and it was rejected yeas 17,
nays 44, as follows:

Mr. Hewitt, of New York, called atten
tion to petitions printed in the record this
morning presented yesterday by Mr. Bur
leigh, of New York. Petitions came from
the New York chamber of commerce, and
from New York merchants in favor of the
appropriation of .j;l ,000,000 for the
improvement of New York harbor. These
petitions are supposed to have been placed
in the record in order to contradict state
ments made by him that the chamber of
commerce was opposed to the appropria
tion contained in the river and harbor bill,
lie reiterated that statement and opposed
continuing the improvement besides which
he declared was a job.
The house concurred in all the seuate

The ltandall tariff bill was next upon the
calendar, but at Mr. KnndaM's request it
was passed over.
Then the committee, by the assistance of
fiequent leports to the house, proceeded
slow ly to set aside all the revenue measures
in advance of the oleomargarine bill, and
when finally that bill was reached,
the reading of its title was greeted with ap
plause, lii answer to a question asked by
Mr. Browne, of Indiana. Mr. Hatch stated
that though the bill had been reported
back with the recommendation that the
senate amendments be non-concurred in, in
view of telegrams and letters which had
been received by the committee during the
past six hours, "he had been instructed to
concur in all the amendments.
Mr. Dunham, of Illinois was accorded
ten minutes in which to oppose the bill.
Mr. Gibson, of West Virginia, opposed
the bill, as being opposed to "every Demo
The house refused to strike out the enact
ing clause of the vinegar bill and it
iesumed its place on the calendar.
The senate amendment to the oleomar
garine bill were then concurred in yeas
174, nays 75. The bill now goes to the
president for his action.
Mr. Willis, of Kentucky, from the con
ference committee on the river and harlor
bill, reported a disagreement and a further

The Mexican Revolution.

some time prevailed here that Mexican re

Willie claims that he saw the man whom
he chased away from the house on the
night of the murder meet a man holding
two horses and mounting the extra horse
ride away with the other man. He also
saw tracks of horses on the road from the
Sells place towards Erie, commencing
about three miles from that place and ex
tending to the suburbs of the town.
L. S Camheru testified that Willie said
when he was being brought in from his
home to jail that he was innocent;
that he could not tell who did com
mit the murder; "those fellows up there
wanted me to say that I did it, but I
thought it better not to own up. He told
the same story of what he knew about the
murder, as he said to the other witness.
Mr. Graham was there in charge of the jail
when Willie was first put in. lie said he
had seen blood on his hands and feet and he
said Willie was a good boy and had assisted
him once when the prisoners attempted to
escape to icsist their attempt.
II. F. Corey, probate judge, was on the
stand to prove tjiat an application had been
made to appoint a guardian on the day
Willie was first arrested. He had refused
to do so. This witness anil the attorneys
had a spicy controversy.
Willie Sheldon, a playmate of Willie's,
testified to various admissions Willie had
made to him in the jail since the arrest.
The conversation had occurred on the first
and second Sunday after Willie was arrested.
Witness said Logan Wells had come to him
and wanted to know how much he would
take to leave the state and he had refused
to do this. On cross-examination he got
badly mixed up. The state then rested its
The first two witnesses for the defense,
Sheriff Parsons and Jailor Graham, testi
fied that Willie was in Fort Scott when
Shelborn claimed to have talked with him.
T. A. Harrodhad talked last fall with
J. W. Sells about building a horse to cost
$1,000. He said he could build one 'and
pay for it in full this summer if he could
teach school for the winter.
The remaining witnesses were principally
to prove the boy's previous good character.
There seemed to be no question about it.
TRIAL OF THE ANARCHISTS.
Additional Convincing Testimony In
mentalisin. Chicago, July 23. Every mat in Judge
Garry's room was occupied "this morning to
hear France Hem the first witness in the
anarchist trial called to the stand.
Witness said he was a saloonkeeper,
Neelc was in his place, 31.1 North Clark
street, May 2d; showed him a poster which
witness identified; it was in the evening
when Neebe called; several others were in
the saloon. N ebe left copies of the circu
lar on the table and spoke about the Mc
Cormick riot.. Neebe addressed those in
the saloon in a general way and said six or
seven men havebeen killedat McCormick's
works. Blood had flowed. Neebe said,
lie added, there will come a time perhaps
when everything will go the other way.
The revenge circular was offered in evi
dence by the state and the witness turned
over to counsel for the defense, who re
fusal to question him.
Prof. Olson, occupying the Greek chair
at Chicago university, and a German
scholar, made translation of Herr Most's
look, "Science of Revolutionary Warfare."
He said the translation which Griunell of
fered in evidence was exact and faithful in
every particular. Another translation from
an article appearing in the Arbeitcr Zeitung
captioned ' International Association of
Workingmen," and giving the platform of
that organization, also offered by the suite.

How long did j-ou stay there?
About half an hour.
What were the people doing there?
Working on the rooms; they had cloths

What did you go there for?
My friend "wanted to buy a revolver.
Then where did you go?
Did you go back to Lingg's?
About ? o'clock; stopped there ten min-

What were they doingr - '
Making dynamite bombs and fuse. (Some
pieces of "fuse and some caps were shown
to witness iind identified by him.)
Did Lingg give you anything that after
noon? Yes, he gave me a small hand satchel
with two bombs in it, some fuse and some
caps; also a tin box.
Is this the tin box? (Showing one the
size of a tea caddy).
Yes, that is the" one; there was dynamite
in it; Lingg said so.
Witness said that after supper on that
day he met Lingg and Seileiger; some one
made the remark that they ought not to be
seen together, so they went up North ave
nue where they met Theile. Witness ex
plained that at"3 o'clock next morning he
crawled out of bed, took the dvnamite and
bombs back of Ogden's grove; went there
on May 17th or 20th with the police ollicer
and obtained the wmLs and dynamite.
Witness said he had belonged to the North
Side socialistic group which met at No. 3
They drilled nearly every Monday night
with guns. The latter were kept at wit
ness' house. He cxplainid that $10 was
raised at the dance at Finn's hall on West
Lake street Irst February, which v:is
turned over to the armed force of carpen
ters but wis atterward given to Lingg to
buv dvnamite with. The witness said that
Lingg" was at these meetings and bought
the dynamite. In February last the wit
ness said Engle made a speech at No. -18,
Claiborne avenue, w hen he explained how
easily and cheaply dynamite could le made,
and how gas piie could lie jfilled. Engle
explained how to fill pieces of gas pipe and
to arrange fuse, and said the outer portion
of the pipe should be bound with nails and
wile so that when exploded it would cause
causualities to be greater. The cross-examination
of Lehman produced nothing addi
tional and did not change the original
statement. Court adjourned until after
The afternoon work on the part of the
prosecution resembled nothing su much as
building of a great wall in which, like solid
courses of masonry, was laboriously and
unalterly dejwsted, layer by layer,

Attempts at cross examination were
for a time despairingly abandoned by
the defense, and when the practice of se
verely interrogating the state's witnesses
again commenced there was a noticeable
change in the line of attack, an entirely
new theory of the motive, animating Spies

available chance, but for a mot laudable
purpose. They were simply trying to get
up a scare among the capitalists so as to
benefit the laboring men.

attorneys for the anarehit. He gate- im

narrative of the meeting of the socialists,
including the armed n-ction, just previous
to the throwing of the lxmib in the Hay
market. Nicrdoff was chairman of the
meeting in Zi'ff shall the night lx-fore that
event and at which Seliger was secretary.
The witness added much weight to the tes
timony of the man upon winch the prose
cution seemed chiefly to rely.
