THE TAIXE INVKMHUIIOX IX
Discusjion of tie River and Harbor
Bill tuntiuaed in the
Washikotox, April 27. .Vim to.
Tho Cua.r laid before ihe Senate a
communiratiou frim lhetUrkof ihe
lioiiHB of KopresentativcS of the Statu
of Obio, transmitting a tiansi'ript of
teaucuony taken by a committee cf
that House and tne report of the
seme committee cn tbe eubjoct of
charges againet the ttlkial integiity of
certain memtieiB of it at IIoubb in
I'onnec'ion with tho eltction rf the
Hon. Henry B. Peyne as United
r?enat-r Payne at once rose and
said: Mr. Chtirmarj No formal mo
tion is reqnireJ, I believe, to send
these papers to the Committee on
" Privileges and Elections. I desire to
be considered as muting such a mo
tion if it is rrqnired, and to couple
with it tbe request that tbe mimrjty
report may take the ssine routs, a
copy of which I Bubrait. With this
formal disposition of tne rraticr I fern
at preeent content, but desire to make
a short 8tttment to accompany tbe
papers into tbe hendsof the commit
tee. A Democrat caucus for th" nom
ination of a candidate for United
State Senator wts convened at Co
lumbus en Jannary 8, 1884. I was not
in ai tendance, but without doubt tbe
contest was heated and bitter. The
result of tbe first ballot was as fol
low: Bcclb, 1; IVndletcn, 15; Ward,
17 ; Payne, 4f, being a majority for the
euccdatful candidate of 13 over all.
The papers submitted embody the re
su't of aa investixa irm Into this can
Vtss conducted sscrtt'y f ?r more than
tbr,:e months by a committee of tbe
House of Itef resentatives of the Stale
of Ohio. He taen read the resolution
under which the committee was tp
pointed, and continued: The scope
of investigation m actually conducted
by the committee ia itited in tbe ma
jority lepon as fjllown: Whenever
-a'.tention was. called ti anything
which indicated the probable employ
ment of irrproper meats to pain sup
port we foil iwfd the clews presented
on ihe theory that we were not only
authorized, but in duty bound to pur
sue any matter that promirod even
remotely to show the use cf such
mtaos in connection with the elec
tion, because the discovery of one
important fait, though having
no immediate bearing upon the
charge against tbe persona named
in tne resolution niighr, lead to
a dieeovery having; such bearing. And
furthermore, and npon the same
theory, our inquiries were not con
fined to technical rules of legal pi oof,
but tbe committee availed itself of any
source of information, admitted heat
say s'atements, and even the opinion
of witnesses. I had huped that the
request put forward by the minority
members of the committee thct the
pro :eedicgs should be open and pub
lic would have been a ceded to, and
that I might have been spared the
mipiepresentatioa or mierepnsenta
tions of ttie testimony which for three
mon:hj has been so assiduously cir
culated, and aga'njt which I have cf
course no defense. The resul's of the
.investigation aie nowhere embodied
in the majority an 1 tbe minority re
port: , .t. -
Firt No mention whatever is made
in the majority report of Mr. Dona
vin, but in the report of the minority
ia found the following: after wesks
of delay Mr. Danavin appeared be
fore tbe committee and toft fled that
theknew of no fact of bribery or no
act on tbe part of any person
toward any other pereon,either diieclly
or indiiectly, to improperly influence
tbe members of tbe Sixty a'xth Gen
eral Assembly in their support of Mr
Henry B. Payne. He knew of him
self of no acts upon which he based said
article, but gave as his principal au
thm.ty one Wilihm Taylor, who testi
fied when called that he had no
knowledge of any act of any person
toward any mf ruber of the House or
of the Senate of the Six y sixth Uen
eral Aeeembly of biibery or corrup
tion used to induce that person or
perfons to give their support to Henry
B. Payne fcr United States Senator.
Thus fell all that the investigation was
originally based upon.
Second Tbe report specifically in
terms exonerates fully and completely
the four members named in the reso
lution under which the conirnUtJe
Third As to myself, the record is
one of absolute and specific exonera
tion. Immediately upon tbe appoint
ment of the committee I addressed a
ietter to the chairman containing the
followingrequtfet: "For myself, I in
vite and challenge tbe most thorough
and rigid scrutiny; my private
correspondent:; and books of account
will be cheerfully submitted to your
inspection if you desire them. I only
insist that in case that any testimony
is given which in tbe slightest degree
inculpates me I be afforded an oppor
tunity of appearing before the com
mittee." To which in due time I ro
ceived a reply containing the following
promise on the part of the committee:
"If in the prosecution of this irquiry
any testimony tending (o inculpate
you in any degree with any qneetion
able transaction be received, I assure,
you that your reqnest to appear b
tore the committee in such event will
be moit cordhllv and fully acceded to.
TUOMAS A. COWGILL, Chairman."
As the comroiitee have never noti
fied or requested me to appear before
them, nor gent for my books or pri
vate correspondence, the result of the
inveet'ga'ion, except upon the hy
pothesis that the committee are des
. titu'.e of truth and honor, must be, as
to myself, absolute exoneration. I
refrain from aay comment upon the
facts, slated in'tbe minority report,
that the witneises desired by the mi
nority wers not subpa'aacd; that the
respectable persons whose names bad
been by somegosjip implicated in the
alleged scandal were refused an oppor
tunity cf testifying, and further that
tbe majority refused to meet as a com
mittee f.rthe purpose of discussing
the evidence, or applying any rol-j to
the same, whereby a unanimous re
port could be reached.
Fourth The committee, after hav
ing exoneratt d, as it was obliged to
do, all persons charged in the resolu
tion and myself, transmitted the hun
dreds of pages of gossip to the Senate
without making any request nf this
bfdy. The resolution says: "For the
information of the bedy of which
Senator Payne is a member and for
such action as it may deem advisa
ble." Of course I have no knowledge
of the contents of th testimony. The
members cf the Houce who voted
to send it here had no knowledge, it
. having all been taken in secret session
by the committee and tbe House
having vo'ed dawn the reeoluiion to
have it printed or re.td. It must, how
ever, ba snpposcd to be fairly repre
sented by the contents of the majority
rerort, which I have read; nJ
iudgirg fnm tbaf, I characters

tbe testimony her aa an attempt
to circnlat? and give currency to base
less gossip and tcindil after every
thing eubftint'al :n the way of a
charge has fieen discredited acd dis
proved. I a'n co itent to leave the
matter with the t'ommitt e on Privi

tion cf if as tuey nay find to be in 82
coiaace with digt i:yand justice. I
trunt that it will receive early atten

Tteniejoritv and minoiity reports
were referred ti the Conmittje on

The following bills authorizing the
construction ot bridges, repcrted fa
vo'able from the Committee on Com
merce, were passed : A railroad bridge
across the Minouri river at or near
Kansas City, Mo. ; a railroad bridge
cross tbe Micsiuri river at or near
Council .Bluffs, Ia ; a railroad bridge
acres the Miteouri river on tbe 1 no

Jackson counties, Mistonri, and the
county of Wyandotte, Kaueas; a

across the Missouri river near the
city of St. Charles, Mo. ; a ra lroad
bridge at or near tbe city of St. Joseph,
Mo. : a railroid bridge across the Mis
souri river near Chamberlain, Dak.
The interstate con me roe Kill was
then taken up. Tne pending question
wns on Srmisor Camden's pioposed
amendment to stride out the words
"from the name point ot departure"
from the keg and alien haul clause
of the bill.
Senator Cull ora d.f?nded the bill.
The committee bad given the subject
of long trd short hauls a good deal of
consideration, and bad not felt it stfe
to go further than the ttrte of Massa
chusetts had gone in that matter. No
countiy in the wjild had tb'olute
long and ebo't haul laws for railroads.
There was in this country a belief
that the sho t haul people were
swindled in orJer to make up for lessee
on the long haul. The committee
had endeavored, by this bill, to pre
vent the possibility of the railrrals
recouping themselves out of the short
haul people for loses on tbe long
haul. The committee, he said, had
not been able to bring their judgment
to the conclunion that it would be
wiec to insist that there should never
be a grea'er charge for a shorter than
for a longer haul. He wiBhed such a
law could wieelv be passed, but it
passed rb things were, such a law
would be greatly injurious to tbe Dim
r o:s of the country.
Sena'or Sherrx au could not see how
the committee having recognized tin
long and short haul priuiiple could
rett the amendment pioposed by
S nator Camden, without that amend
ment double the rate Irom Chicago
to New York might be charged from
Pittsburg to New Vork.- That would
be a great injustice to Pittsburg. It
was impcB3ibid to slop stiort ot extend'
iog tbe long and short haul principle
to interior points on railroads, if it
was to be applied to great terminal
points on the same railroadp. If thera
was any justice controlling railroad
rates to extreme point9, tbe principle
must be extended to intermediate
points. But it was (aid it sometimes
co:t mora for a short haul than a long
one. That was not co ; it could not be
so. It bad never been shown to be
so. There was no ground of equity
for a larger charge on a short haul
than a longer one. If we were
ta make a rule about it
at all, we could not escape
going the whole way. Any other rule
would utterly destroy all the interme
diate towns snd cities. One of the
great evils of our time was the concen
tration in our cities the result of rail
road arrangements at th expense of
1c cal communities. The weight on tbe
few words which Senttir Camden ta J
moved to strike out (from the same
point of departure) showed that the
object was to keep up the privilege of
ranking heavy charges from local
points in Ohio, Indiana and West Vir
ginia, and all intermediate points.
Seca'or Miller opposed the amend
ment, and Senators Harris and Beck
Senator Conger aiso favored it. The
people cf Michigan, he said, had f or
years been suffering extortion from
railroad overcharges. The bill, as it
stood now, was in favor of the great
cities and against small towns and
rural districts. He ridiculed the idea
that the general provision of the bill
relating to extortionate charges was of
any use against corpora'ions. If the
railroad managers ot the United States
had come together they could not have
gotten up a bill better calculated to
serve their interests against tbe water
routes than this bill would serve them.
If the bill passed, there would be no
further need of improving our water
communications the railroads would
have the water courses absolutely un
der their control.

A Senate bill passed cxtenrliog for

The House was then kept amused
for' nearly an honr by a personal ex
planation bv Mr. Foran O.J, followed
by a similar explanation by Mr.
O'Neill Mo., all hinging on a re
mark attributed by the latter gentle
man to tbe former that the labor
tronbles Bboald be settled by blood.
Mr. Foran denied with much warmth
tbat he had ever made any such state
ment, and during the course of his
remarks eaid that Mr. Crain Tex.,
and not Mr. O'Neill, was tbe author '
of tbe arbitration bill.
Mr. O'Neill replied that ever since
he had been Chairman of the Commit
tee on Lsbor he had been fretted and
worried by tbe eorebead gentleman
from Ohio. The trouble with the arbi
tration bill was that his (Mr. O'Neill's)
name was connected with it. If it bad
been a failure the gentleman from
Obio would have been glsd enough to
have charged it to "hia humble ser
vant." A number cf committee reporU
were pres anted, and then the hill to

which they paid to ccrrorations.
Mr. Hepburn flowal thought that
the appropriations in tne pending bill
would have little ellei t in hnngirg dis
tress to an end or re'ief to the coun'ry.
One of the causes for the distress wum
the fact that the people were afraid
of those wno were cow in authority.
There had been to much of rrornis.
so little of paf: .nuance, on the art rf
the Democratic paity that the people
looked to the future with d etrust. To
enumerate a few of ita pledges: The
people had been ro'd, especially by
his colleague (Mr. Weaver), that here
tofore the government had been run
in the interest of men of wealth and
grea corporations, but that no wealthy
people were to be conserved in tbe in
terests. As proo? of this thegenlleman
he.d called attention to the fact that the
President sympathized with the set
tlers on the fron'ier who wre stand
ing around the'fenitory of Ok'ahotna ;
that tbe monopolies were in there
under ihe rule of the Republican
party, and that now they were to be
turned out and the settlers were to go
in. A few days aqo his colleague hal
been compelled to say, with humilie
tion in his manner, that all of those
loud sounding promises bad bean un
true: that tbe settlers were still stand
ing outside, lcoking to the land of
promise irom which the Peeiden 'a
electors prevented their entering, ihe
people bed been told tbat the volume
of currency was to be eolirged, but
instead ot that, beiore tne fresutent
had taken bis seat, he had recom-
ment'el that the ei'v;r branch cf the
currency should ba stricken down
Not content with that, in the very
first report made by the Secretary of
the Treasury, that cfllcei had recom
mended that all the greenbacks should
be destroyed. Immediately a'tar tbat
tbe gentleman t om Illinois ( Mr. olor
rison) had come in with a proposition
to disturb all of the labor interests
of the country. No man knew where
that would end. No man could tell
where the disturbance was to cease.
No man could forecast the future.
