tified. Sidnoy Clark wa croii-axamincd.
Wilueis iM ho InlendoJ from tha llr.t
to voto for invcitiation befaro u com
ruitteo of tlio legitlaturo at Topeka, until
ho found that it wj nut conducted legiti
mately. Tho investigation ftiu locretj
no proecutor wm jireient, nnd only one
witnti nt h time. Witneii thinln tho
reportorthotoniinunyw.il changed all
tin way through. Tha roportur wai an
intelligent, upright mr.n, but out of prac
tico. Tho comtnitlco was not composed
of enemies of Caldwell, and the speaker
who appointed them was not unfriundly
to ('a!itwH. Their report was unani
mous against Cnidwoll. Witnou was not
influenced in bringing tho matter boforo
thl sotiHloby tlio consideration that did
well h i 1 not p iid his (Cl irk's) oxponsaj.
Edward JIanning testified bo was u
member of tlio lower house of the legisla
ture by which Caldwoll was elected; did
not know anything nbout tho uio of
monej- to socuro his election ; know that
Clarko had monoy to Influenco tho elec
tion; tried to borrow $1,000 from him.
Farney Leavenworth said that ho knew
nothing of money transactions on tho part
of C.ildwoll's friends in tho canvass. Goo.
II. Leavenworth .said ho nover know
or heard of monoy boing used to sccur
voto. for Caldwoll.
Jno. L. Henderson ol Leavenworth tea
tiflod that Wm. II, Carson told witness ho
meant to mako money out of this investi
gation. It was genoral talk at Topoka
that money was being used, but ho knew
nothing of nny improper inducements be
ing otlernd for votes. Only when tho tint
voto whs taken ho introduced n resolution
directing tho spoakor to administor to
member an oath that thoir votos had not
been and would not bo influenced by a
monoy consideration. Tho resolution was
nnd nbout two-thirds of tho mombers took
it, Ouo of tlio arguments ngainst hi
roiolution whs that tho mombers had
taken itn oath when thoy took their scats,
and tlmt was sufficient. Tho votes of
thoo who refused to tako tho oath woro
scattering; ho introduced tho resolution
because- of tho genoral rumors of corrup
tion that provailod.
Jorry Clark, ptistmastor of Loavon
wnrth, test i nuil that in his prceeuco Car
ney denounced Caldwell nnd Smith, and
declared with an oath that ho would oust
tbo forniur from his soat. Witnoss wroto
asking for tho postmastorship ; supposed
friendship displaced .Mrs, Johnson, n
widow, boforo her timo oxp'.rtd, when
Carnoy tlircn.cncd to oust Cald
woll; ho said that six yoars
boforo, Carnoy was running for eonator
and lacked ten votos of ti majority ; that
ho gave- Sonator Smith ?25,O0O to socuro
thoso votes, and that Smith sold him out
kept tl.o monoy, nnd Hint Caldwoll wus
in tho conspiracy,
Carnoy took Urn stand was and cross-ex-
amod: aikcd li!m If ho told Clark that ho
gavo Smith $'.'5,000 or nny other sum ? ,

Wamiinoton, Jan. 'Jl. Wilson' Un
ion Pacific commitUoBxarnlri'id K. II. Kol
11ns of Now York. Hoititcd that prior
to being secretary of tho Union Pacific
railroad, ho was employed by that com
pany In Washington, In securing subsidy
bonds nnd attending to adjustments of no
counts with the fjimrtermnstor'a depart
ment. It was shown by Itollins from tho
books of tho company that tlio flnl con
struction contract of tho company was
mdo with M. II. Hoxie. Tlio contract was
assigned to tho Credit Mobllicr. Tlio
Uooiner contract did not appear in tho
books. Tho (Jakes Amos contract was nc
coptel by tli'i Crodit Mohilier, and as
signed to tho trustees. Thu Davis con
tract was accepted Novcmbor, 0. Tho
witness was never connocted in any way
with tho Credit Mobliinr.
Tho examination of Itollins win re
sume!. Witness slated tbevholo cost of
thu road was t 8,CGC,G07 1 thorn woro
$1'Jj,00Q paid for legal expense; no state
ment is mudo us to when, and to whom;
didn't think any part of tho money wa
paid to iiifluencrlegi1ution ; said that in
the transfer of thu Union I'acifiu ofllco
from 2fcw York to Huston, i!54 bonds of
tho company wer.i lost. All cfl'orts to re
cover them were fruitless.
Oakes Ames wm called and losliikd
that he knew only by report of Durant
having paid Senator Harlan $10,000.
Witness, in reply to a query, snid he con
tributed $2,000 latt October for several
political purposes. In Indiana ho had
been applied tu for aid, and thought that
was a good way of spending monoy.
Ilecalled IJumnt, Ho produced a list of
persons to whom ho had transferred stock;
ho did not think any wns held in trust for
congressmen. Ho produced n receipt of
J. IlAlley for 200 shares at $!C0. Tho 7o
fctiares in the name of Crano wcro hold by
him in trust for tho benefit of witness ;
tho only congressmen on tlio list aro
Hover and Alley.
James Hrooks tcstldtd that in 1800, be
fore ho was government director or mem
ber of congress, ho had f,urchaod of Du
rant tho option of -00 sharer of Credit
Mohilier stock. In 1807, being appointed
a director, he transferred his right to his
sjn-iii-law, (Mr. Neilson), who took 160
shares of tho stock.
THE WAYS AND MEt.Ni COMMITTEE
decided to taku no notion upon tho syndi
cate matter'or question of ovcr-issuo of
legal-tenders. This is considerod to favor
tho views of tho secretary of the treasury.
11KUIERT IN MlSdOCRI.
Sr. Louis, Jan. 21. In the senatorial
bribery investigation to-day 31 r. Stancil
testified that the night of tho caucus he
handed a slip of paper to Senator Essex
with n check for $305 wrilton thcroon, and
told Kssex ho had better take that and
voto for Uogy, but it was said in fun, with
out authority, and not for tho purpose of
influencing his vote. Tho wholo thing
was a joke, and ho regretted vory much
tho seriousness it had assumed. He heard
that Mr. Edens, ex-memborof tho house,
had paid money to Ave meinbors to influ
enco their votes for Bogy, but ho know
nothing of bis own knowledgo. .Mr. Al
len had a conversation with McSmitli in
Gen. Illalr's room, in which 3IcSmith
aaid Edon's had 52,100 belonging to Dorrs.
Allon's impression was 3lcSmith was aid
ing lllnir. Several other gentlemen testi
fied to stroot rumors of money being used,
but knew of nothing positivo.

So far as advised, it appears we havo too

A spectator might be stirred by tho
numerous bills introduced in both houses
relativo to kegs, casks, barrels and bot
tles, to inquire : What iM the matter witli
this innocent branch of human industry ?
The answer is at hand, nothing. Tho man
ufacture of these useful vestols is not in
jeopardy. Thu bills presented in tho
names of them have a temperance
tendency. Contemplated legislation pro
proposes to tako care that kegs, casks, bur
relsaud bottles onco exhausted of their con
tents, shall not again como to ecrvlcu in
debauching tho nnimal functions in human
nature, nor tho Intellectual either. Tho

money might bo savod by referring tho
wholo matter to tho fodorul government
for adjustment. It is a part of that
