judge Cole Overrules the Sugar
Case Demurrers.
REPORTERS MUST TESTIFY.
The Case of Shrivers and Edwards,
Newspaper Correspondents,
Who Refused to Testify Be?
fore the Senate Sjgar
Trust Inquiry.
Bv Southern Associated Press.
Washington, January 17. -Judgo
Cole this morning delivered his de?
cision in tlio case of U. ?. lliivo
ciyorand Johu E. ?earls, president
and treasurer of the Amerioau
rSngar Helming Company; ?'. tf,
6brivers and E. J. tidwards, nows
capor oorrespondeuts, und Allen Ij
Koyuaour, stockbroker, indicted lor
?efusiug to atiawer qnestions asked
by the donate coininittoo appointed
?o iuvostigute the relations of the
tiugar Truat to Senators and legisla
tiou. Judge Cole held that the de?
murrers filed by the- defendants to
?ho indictments agaiutst them were
void. They must ataud trial for the
?neuse charged.
Judgo Cole, in his decision, held
that ueWBpaper men had no right to
claim that communications made to
them were privileged, and therefore
obaolved them from letting the
*onrce of their information. Thov
l.ad no rights, he stud, such as those
conceded to priests and lawyers who
had received commuuicatioua in the
confessional or from cliouta.
Judge Colo overruled the deinur
rer to the indictment against stock
broker Seymour without extended
comment, of the ground that the
?cuse mis exactly tiie same us that of
?tockhrokora MaOartuey and Chap?
man. As: to the cases of eorrcspou
dents Suriver and Edwards, Judge
Cole said tliat the general questions
involved were the same us those m
the MaCartuey ami Chapman iu
dictmeuts, that is, as to the general
Jurisdiction of tho Senate to proceed
?ith the Sugar Trust iuqniry, but
several questions were also involved
that bail not been disposed of, first
?s to relevancy of the questions
asked and, second,that thtii answers
might tend to make them liable to
criminal prosecution.
As to the relevancy of tho ijues
tiou&.the correspondents were asked
as to the sources of information
which they incorporated in nuws
paper arlioles, l'bey were oxam
tued, said Judge Cole, *o far ha tu
develop that ihey did not have
personal knowledge of the iuforma
tion, but it was developed what
ibeir sources of information were,
one of them obtained their kuowl
edge from a member of L'ougn m,
and the question was as to the men
iitv of that member.
The question put to tho ether cor
respondent was substantially tue
same althoiioh the person furnish
fug the information was not a Con?
gressman, I ins correspoudcut du
cliued to give tlio source of nia in
iormation ou the ground that it was
not pertinent.
Judge Cole said there was but one
answer to that contention?it musi
iiave been pertinent. Tho grand
Jury could compel a porsou to uis
close the basis "tor his information
whether the person has personal
knowledge or not,
The Senate Committee, he said,
bud a perfect right to compel a per?
son to disclose tue sources of ins in?
formation,unless ilio correspondents
bad iho right to bo excused on tho
ground that their answers would
make them liable to prosecution or
i ut the communication was a privi?
leged oue.
it did not appear, Judge Cole
maintained, tlmt either cd these
correspondents claimed that bis an?
swers might luorimiuate him. If
they bad claimed that the court
would huvo been obliged to look
Into the basis tor the claim. I)
they did claim that privilege, the in?
dictments did nut show it and the
question could be raised only alter
the defendant* had entered their
pleas to tho indictments,
That newspaper correspondent
should claim the right to refuse to
answer questions as to the aourcca
of information, on tlio ground that
tho communication was privileged,
waa a now Contention, said Judge
Cole, That any editor or other
newspaper man was to i>c n priv?
ileged person iu this rospeel did no)
bold as it did in the case Ol n priest,
confessor or, of a lawyer. Borne
court bad yet to rulo that it did
bohl,
it seemed to Judgo Colo that
tbero could be no more dangerous
doctrine than that a newspaper cor
respondent should publish some
thing derogatory to n party or body
and then, when brought before a
court, claim that it was e privilege !
communication which be had
printed. That rule would bo very
demoralizing and have n daugi roua
tendency. L'heru wa.i no precedent
?ml no Isasia for it. The demurrers
in these eases wcro therefore ovor
Belod, and the defendants, u?id
Jndge Col-.', shou'd b? oompellad to
eLiuw privilege when ihov answered
tho indictments.
As to Messrs, Havemevcr and
Seark'h, Judge Colo sn;il tbat tlie
only question left utmu fur him to
decido with referouce to tho other
cases was whether the questious
askod the wituessos were pertinent,
it was uluimtiti m behalf of Mr.
Havoineyer that tho pertinent ques?
tions wer'.' uskeel t>y Senator Allen
anil not by the chairman iu behalf
of Use committee. The indictment
of Havemeyer showed, lioflovor.sui.l
tho oourt, that Senator Allen put the
questions "for and in behalt of the
committee," ami therefore tuo in?
dictment held in tins respect.
if further contended thattbeso
defendants declined to answer be?
cause they did not nave the requi?
site knowledge to do so. All that
was asked was to the contributions
to the Democratic canipuigu fuud of
1S'.?- and as to tho amount given. A
witness could not bo prosecuted for
refusal to answer questions of wbiob
he hail no knowledge. If that point
had been raised before tho commit?
tee it would have beeu a good point,
but Havemeyer and ricarles did not
say that they had no knowledge of
the contributions.
It bad beeu publicly charged that
the contribution was for tho pur?
pose of preventing legislation ad?
verse to the interest of the corpora?
tion giving it,und also that Senators
had beeu influenced m their votes
by that contribution, Tbe Senate
started Otlt to investigate these ro
purls und it had a perfect right to
ilo HO.
Tho qnestion, therefore, enmo
down to ouegof pertinency. The
amount of money contribute.! cer?
tainly was ik very important thing
to ascertain tho oircumstances, The
newspapers bad obarged tbat tbe
sum contributed was immeuso, but
Havemeyer and Soarles hud refused
to toll what tho amount was. - The
question was perfectly pertiueut and
should have been answered.
Continuing, Judge Cole said it
was ulso claimed by defendants that
the amounts contributed were not
pertiueut, because the contribution
was for local ami not for national
campaign purpose-'. It was per
feotly ciear, and everybody knew,
that contributions made to national
campaigu committees of political
parties went to tho .State and local
committees for parceling out just us
money given to Stale uud local coin
mitieusiu a campaign where na?
tional issues were involved went as
much to help tho national as the
local candidate of the party receiv?
ing tlie contribution. Tim questiou
was whether tins money was used iu
tbe national campaigu for the pur?
pose of iutiueuciug legislation.
Havemeyer and Searles refused tu
show whether it wus or was not,
1 heir demurrers were therefore
overruled and Iho iudiotmeuts were
good.
.Mr. Nathaniel Wilson, represent?
ing Havemeyer and Searli called
Judge Cole's attention to tho charge
iu tlie iudiotmeuts mat llavemeyei
hud refused (6 answer questions.
Havemeyer had merely refused to
produce tbe books of the company
oi which he ?a-* presideut, -aid Mr.
Wilson, ami had not r el used to an
Bwer questions as to matters ot winch
ho had no personal knowledge.
Judge Colo Raid ho had considered
tbat point and it amounted to tue
same thing.

Elected President of tho French
Republic Yesterday.
ONLY SOCIALISTIC VAPORING
Elected on the Second Ballot. No
Excitement Among the Popu?
lace, but Occasional Out?
bursts in the Chamber.
The President.
Southern Associate I Pro**.
Pauis, January 17. ? M. Francois
Felix Fan re, member of the Cham?
ber of Deputies for Seine-In
forieuro, was to .lay elected I'resi?
dent of the Freuch Republic to suc?
ceed X'. Casimir-Per ier, whoso
resignation wm read in the Cham?
ber.-, j estei day.
Tho day opened quiel und noth
ing iu the appealauce or demeanor
of tho people either in Paris or
Versailles indicated that tho country
was on tho eve of an election to till
the highest ollice in tue nation.
I.xeept that a lorce of soldiers was
massed at each of tho railway sta?
tions and four sappers and miners
were guarding each railway bridge
and grado erossing betwoen Paris
and Versailles there \vn- nothing to
show that auytbiug extraordinary
was going on.
Very few persons arrived at Ver?
sailles before UooU bill after that
hour every train was packed wiui
Senator*-, Deputies, newspaper re?
porters und sigtit beers, There was
iio demonstration ot enthusiasm
either at too station or at the
Palaoe.
At 11 o'clock a number of tele?
graph operator-, with their appara?
tus, were lustnlled iu the Palaoe,
hundreds of attaches arrived, and
the printing presses weie made
read', to record tho ollicini report of
the proceedings ot the national
Convention,
SI. Challemel-Lacotir, President
of tho (Senate, accompanied by his
offioial Secretaries, Btarted from
Paris for Versailles at 8:50 this
morning from tho Montparnasse
railway station, and uj on h a ar
nvul iu Versailles was conveyed to
the I'alaeo in au open carriage,
Workmen had been eugaged all
night iu lilting up the hall iu the
palace iu which tlio National Assem?
bly was to Fit with the furniture aud
hangings from the Garde Meuble.
A force of 50? detective-- from this
city arrived in Versailles early iu
the no.ruing and the strength of the
regular police was great lb increased,
it i eiug (cared that the anarchists
might seize the opportunity afford?
ed by the crisis, but nothing worse
thftu socialistic vaporings occurred
(brought* ut the day.
1 he Natioual Assembly was called
to oi'ier by M, Challemel-Laconrt
a 11" in. M, Chuileruel Luoourt,
in a brief speech, announced the
resignation of President Ci^imir
Perier, and reo I the text id the
articles of tho constitution regulat?
ing the election ot a President, As
soon as tue presiding ollicer bed
ceased speaking Michleiu, Socialist,
sprang to his feet sboutiug, "An
ougtit not to have u President."
M, de Uaudrey d'Asson, Legiti?
mist, demanded a right to bs heard
and, in Spite of the storm of pi.,
tests from all parts of the hall, in?
sisted tipon spenkiug from Ins place,
While persisting in speaking he
waved aloft a document which, he
declared, contained a proposition to
re-establish the monarchy, The
protests had m the meiiutiine he
cotue so violent that, alter repeated
vain attempts la make himself
hoard, ho finally deposited tlio doc
uincnts upon the table, they being
contemptuously pushed asido by tho
presiding ollicer.
Lots were drawn at 1:17 for thirty
six scrutators to supervise tno bal?
loting. Tbeu came the drawing of
lots to SCO What letter the voting
should bogiu with. Precisely as was
the case last June tie.) letter "L" was
drawn and LaUarthe, Moderate
KepubllCSU, was unaided for the
second time to begin tho balloting
for a president.
When tho namo of Mirnian, so?
cialist, was called, there was no re?
sponse, Deputy hoing a soldier garr
lisoued at Nincenues, and the Colo?
nel of his regiment having refused
to grunt him a furlough in order
that ho might bo present in tho us
eembly. The Socialists raised n
tremendous uproar heoau-o i\lir
man's vote was not recorded,
When Toursaint, (Socialist) do
posited his vole in the urn ho sriod
"Vivo Social Revolution," and when
theuainoof Aviv, (Socialist Itevo
lutionist) was called ho refused to
vote, but shouted from bis seat
"Absoulion Irum voting means dis
solution, Down with the Presi
deucy,"
Tbo voting was a siow process.
Fach Deputy und Sountor in re
sponso to his name walked to tho
platform, depositing bis ballot in an
urn and returning to his seat. The
balloting begun at 1:20 p. m. and
lasted until 8:30, The counting, re
yisiug? eta,, of tbo votes required au
hour aud tho re3tilt was officially
announoed at 4:30 ns follows: Urn
sou, Faure, 24t; Wuldeok Hos
sean, I^d; scattering, J^. Total Dar??
ber o( votes oaat, 704; uEjjssary to
eject, 399.
Theopen advocacy of the candi?
dacy of Brissou by tho Socialists
hurt that gentleman's chances yory
mneb.
Over 100 Conservative Senators
and Deputies divide-1 their votos
between Fanre and Waldeck-llom
soan rather than cost them with tlia
Socialist*,whereas tb-jeo votes might,
for tho greater part, have gone to
Brissou.
Brissou aud Wnldccfc-ltonsseau
both voted aud tho venerable Pierre
Blanc, Union Hopublicuu, the father
ol the C humtler of Deputies;received
an ovation as ha walked to the urn
und deposited bis ballot. |
When Baudroy d'Asson voted ho
shouted: "Vive Catholic Prance!
Vivo le Hoi!"
Tho "allied" j?ppublicans, at a
meeting just prior to the convouiiig
of the Assembly, decided to vote for
Fan re. The Center hehl u meeting,
but did not decide upon any candi?
date.
After the announcement of the
voto it was noised about that
Waldock-liosseau would withdraw
his oaudidaoy iu fa^ir of Faure and
Cavaiguac set on foot a movement
desigued to deprive Faure of some
fifty votes, which, it success! ul,
would, if was holiovcd, elout Brifi
son. Accordingly, bulletins were
distributed in tho hope of making
the runniug clear fur Brisv-oa by
taking the wavering' supporters id
Faure, It wa:i tho belief that
Cavaigoac that bo could secure per?
haps lifly votes which bad been
given to Faure because of Brissou's !
radical teneoucies. Had ho 6iio
oeedod iu his scheme Brisson would j
have carried oil' the Presidoucy,
The uuuoiiucemeut oi tho sceotul i
ballot was mado amid a terrible diu.
1 he Brissouitea were so busy groan?
ing, cheering und reproaching their ]
neighbors that they paid no uttou
tiou to Chaliemel Lacour when ho
rose to read the figures, it was live
minutes after he spoko itt-foro till
the members of the assembly knew
tho result. Tho figures gi-uerally
known wero then only approximate
? Fanre 430 and Brissou .'luT?hut
they sufficed to show that Felix
Faure was President of Prance,
Tho scouo was absolutely devoid
of eolotmiity or dignity. Tue Bris
sointes, who had not ouco ceased
howling, wero joinod by ?ither und
eoutouls aud tiio roof was fairly
shaken by the indescribable tumult.
Tho Uadicals mounted chairs ami
benches, shouting, "Dowu with turn
President eleoted by the Bight."
The Socialists run up and dowu
the aisles bowling, "Dowu with the
thieves; dowu with the Congo ud
venturers; down with tlio Panama
scoundrels,"
Occasionally when the dm sub?
sided for a moment tho Socialists
would yell in an ear-splitting chorus:
"Hurrah for the social republic,"
"hurrah for the social revolution."
Baudry D'Asson, tbe Orleanist, had
gut a conspicuous [ lace near Ciiul
lemel Laoour, and with puipio face
and waving arms, proclaimed u hun?
dred times that the presidency was
Usoless ami the re| iibho must end.
Tbe crowd outside was m strauge
contrast to tho Assembly, It aus
neither excited noi enthusiastic,
Fauro's train to Baris was a apooial
one and very slow and reached the
St. I.a/are station at 'J:t)?, By that
time tho news ot the election hud
spread far ami wide aud a vast
timing hail gathered in the Place do
Havre, outside the statiou. The
President was received with a lew
cries of "Bong live Felix Fanre,"
but there was no enthusiasm.
Bruneis Felix Faure wus, until
this evening,a member of the Cham?
ber of Deputies for the Department
of Heine-lnferiuere, Ho was born
iu Paris January 30, 1841. Ho was
under >eerutary of Stata for the col
uuies in the ministries of Uambetta,
Terry, Brissou und 1'irard, ami was
ouo of the vice presidents of tho
'('number of Deputies preceding
Iho present one. He bits been a
j B.e publican Deputy for about tour
teen years and bus served on Bevern
of tho most important cotutuitlcas
of the chamber. Faure had inuilu u
; legislative specialty ol busiuess ques*
I Hons, particularly those concerning

foreign commerce. Ho served in
too IVrance-Priissiati war us chief of
