Wammmjto.v, Dec. IS. Tho (enale
committee on elections this forenoon re
sumed their invoitlgatlon Into the olectian
of Senator Caldwell of Kansni. Ex-Gov-Carney
wa examined at groat lon-tn. He
corroborated tho tentlrnony heretofore
given by Sam T. Smith, Caldwoll's part
ner, to the etloct that at a private inter
view with Caldwell, Smith and
himself, Caldwell offured Carney
$15,000 if, ho would withdraw from tho
eontfst for senator. This 0H"cr he soon af
torwards uccopted, and signed a papor
pledging himtelf that ho would in no case
becotno u caudldntu, in return for which
he (Carney) received Smith's note at
thirty days, for $10,000, given uncondition
ally, and Smith's due-bill for $3,000, con
dltlonal on Caldwell's election. A consid
eration was namsd in tho agreement for
expense incurred, and aiiiitanco had
been renderei by Carnoy. Smith's note
for$l0,000 was paid Carney at maturity ;
tho ;duo-bill for $5,000 was paid last
spring after tho election; and while Cald
well was on bis way to Washington to
Uko his seat in 'the senato, Carnoy met
him in thu railroad car, and Caldwell told
witnois tbtt be wai aware that the due-bill
had not been paid, that as soon as be got
to 1'hiladolphla ho would remit to wit
ness $5,000 to pay it. Caldwell did not
keep this promiio, but spoke to Carney on
tho subject four or tlvo times during the
summor, and just beforo ho same to
Washington tho next winter, ho told Car
noy ho would toon nrrange to get some
monoy from the Kansas Pacific railroad
with which to pny tho duo-bill.
Caldwell said tho Kansas Pacific had pro
mised to pay him some money to assist
in bis election, but tboy had not yet dono
so. So far as he was concerned they
could cot no legislation till they kept
their promise, and paid him money.
Witness testified during senatorial can
vass ono day P. J. Anderson, employe
of Paciflo railroad company came to
Smith in his presence and aked for $7,000,
to be used In contest. Witness on do no J
Smith's check in ordor thai Anderson
might jet it cashed. Witness believed
Andorson got It, and usod it for
political purposes in Oaldwoll's interest.
Caldwell onco stated that ho (Caldwell)
should win it if it cost him $20,000. Sub
sequently Caldwoll told witnoss that his
olection cost over $G0,000. Caldwoll hav
ing told witnoss tbat he folt very grateful
to him and his friends, nnd would do what
he could for them, several
members of tho '.legislature
inado applications to Caldwell through
Carnoy for various ofllces. On ono occa
sion whon witnoss presented Caldwoll
such papers, Caldwoll took out a hook, and
after referring to it, said : "1 don t owe
that man anything. I paid that' man for
his vote." No mcmbor thoro has received
any offlco from Caldwoll. Witness there
fore knew of no othor way by wiilcli tno
man referred to by Caldwell, could have
been paid, except by money. Witness
could not remember tho name of this per
son ; it seomed from Caldwell's
manner on this occasion that
he had in his book a Hat of all the
members of the legislature, with their
price. Caldwoll at another tlmo told
witness that ho had paid James R Log
gett f 1,000 for his vote, and Ilyers, anoth
er member, $'-&00 for his vote. IJeloro
tho election Lovi Smith told Caldwoll In
witness' present that ho already involved
himself to tho amount of $40,000 for
Caldwoll, which ho feared Caldwell
would not recognize. Smith added, how
evor, that ho would pay ono half tho ox
Poiibu in caso he didn't succeed by his ar
rangements in electing Caldwell, whoro
upon Caldwell said, "all right." At times
during tho canvass Caldwoll would como
to a committee of friends and say he must
havo somo moru monoy. Smith would toll
the follows to bo pationt, they must have a
little pationce ; tho currency of tho bank
has all boon paid out, but more has been
sont for and will bo along presently. An
dorson was omployod by Caldwoll and
Smith to soo all tho monitors of tho legis
lature and to got all ho could from day to
day. R would ropcrt that such und such
roombors could bo controlled for porhaps
five hundred, ono thousand or two oacb,
J. L. McDowoll was anothor mombor el
this working committoo, nnd made similar
reports, on tho reception of which tho
blm $10,000 to aid Caldwoll in the con
tost. Witness was taken into uiu cum.
denco of Caldwell and Smith, and testi
fied unwillingly. Witness talked to many
members of tho legislaturo at tho request
of Caldwoll and Smith. Sometimes mem
bers would say to witness that they un
dorstood Caldwell was paying for votes,
that his election was not cxpeclod
or desired by tho people; nt
hoy could not afford to go homo
to defend their courio if they voted for
Caldwoll without being paid for it. In
such cases tho witness would refer mem
bers to Smith or ethers who woro manag
ing fur Caldwe'l. Williams of Johnstown,
ono of tho members or tho legislature,
told the witness that Smith had already
promUed htm money lor his Tote. "Wit
ness heard that I.evt Smith, Uldviall
friend, had umployed Anderson
to ititlit them. Geo. Smith of
Leavenworth, waj also working
vigorously for Caldwoll, and told witness
that he had nriangcd for tho voto of Hut
ler, by Hgreeing Caldwoll would pay an
out-standing note of S350. Smith told
witness another lime that ono of the mem
hers of tho li-glslaturo had sold Uiem out
and run nil' with the inom y which had
been paid him. "Witness
