MIlOfK.t IIKIIIKtlY CASE.
St. Loui. Jan. 23. In tho senatorial
bribery Investigation nt Jeflurion City to-
duy, it was In evidence that Gen. Dorris
ofl'ered to loan AV. G. Pope, member from
Wright county, money to bo paid when
ho (Pope; beenmo preildont of tho I'nitcd
States' W. II. Wilson of Kanas City,
offered to loan Popo $1!,000 and givo him
$'.'00 for every Pholps man ho turned for
Dorr!. Pope declined, and told Pholni.
(for whom ho was working! of the trans-
action, to put him or. his
guard. Subsequently AVilson agreed
to givo Popo nnd C. II. .Morgan of Uarton
county $1,000 each, and $100 for each
voto transferred from Pbelpi to Dorris.
Pope was alto informed that a note bad
boon sent hlrn from Mr. Cravens, a friend
of Pope', containing an offer from Dorris
of $10,000 to turn the Pholp's vote for
Hlair. Cravens afterward confirmed this
statement, and said Dorris authorized tho
ollor. All thco thinijs wero told to
Phulpi, so (that should Dorris develop
any .strength in tho caucus, they
could be sprung on him. Mr.
Morg..n corroborated Mr. Popo'i
testimony, and Col. McAfee, Gov. Phelps'
leading friend.eorroborated tho sir tements
both of Popo and Morgan. Col. Colby of
St. Louis, tostifled that Edens, ex-mem-bor
from Mississippi county, told hira
thcro were dead loads of monoy in Jellcr
son City in tho Dorris interest. Tho of
fer to members was $300 down, nnd $200
after tho election. Edens ulso said ho
handled somo of Hogy's money, nnd ex
pected to get $'j00 after tho election ; that
he paid ix member $250 each to voto for
Rogy, that Hjl'v' friend wero to tav
him for irutliriir thu votei: that
he was working in tho interest of Uol-v,
and that Dorris was to pay him. Dorris
told Colby that ho had 26,000 to secure
his own election.
W. II. Wilson testified thht Gon. Dorris,
to whom bo was a stranger, loaned him
$1,700 without taking any obligation for
it. He did not attempt to iufiuenco rotes
for Dorris, but used the money for prlvato
purposes; did not know why Dorris
loaned him tho money, nor did ho have
any understanding with birn that he should
aid him in securing tho senatorship.
In the Wilson investigating committoo,
Oliver Amos, formor president of tho
Union Pacific railroad, was sworn, and
was asked what it cost to build that por
tion of thu road ombracod in Oakes Amos
contract, but was not ablo to advanco tho
information. He was examinod at length
regarding tho subscriptions to tho capital
stock to tho Union Pacific, and rotative
to tho subscriptions authorized to bo tnndo
by thu trustees of tho Credit Mobilior to
the stock in tho Union Pacific.
During tho examination ho said Oakes
Ames' contract could not lmvo been ob
tained so low as it was if tho completed
portion of tho road had not bocn includod
in tho contract.
Chairman i "Did you not, by virturo of
tho contract with Oakc9 Ames, which in
cluded 138 miles of road already com
pleted, derive a largo profit from tho
Union Pncifio railroad company, and was
not that profit mudo tho vory instant tho
contract was assigned to tho trustees?"
Answer: "It was.'1
Question : "Did not tho Crodit Mobilior
in a few months declare large dividends?"
Answer ! "Wo did."
Quostion : "Wero not all tho assots,
excopt tho Credit Mobilior dividonds, ob
tained from timo to tlnio by assignments,
till tho dividonds wero made?"
Answor : "They wero."
Question : " Wat not a largo portion
of tho dividends derived from extensions
of tho contract ovor that already built and
accepted by tho government?'1
Answor : " It probably was."
Question : " What did tho 133 miles of
completed road, included in Oakoa Ames'
Answer: "I do not know,"
"By Swann, did you not represent to
government parties in authority, that tho
portion of road roforrcd to was finished
road, and fully equipped, and did you not
recolve your bonds accordingly, In con
formity with law ?"
Answer: "Tho government commli-
loners inspected every twenty miles of
road and reported Its completion to tha
government. Tho road was equipped for
running purposos, but not to the oxlent of
accommodating travel. 1 ho government
accepted tho road as finished, and tho
bills were paid."
Question: "Do you know how much
money was spent for engine-houses, etc,
nftor tho road was accepted?"
AtiHWcr: A good many hundred thou
Hoar: "Did tho contract with Oakos
Ames bind him to do, to a portion of road
already accepted, anything more, to takn
on additional sum of mony In part pay
mont for It ?"
Answor: "Tho contract bound Oakes
Ames to furnish a cortaln numbor of en
gines and carf, which ho did."
SheJIabargor: "Was not all tho ma
chinery and rolling slock at tho rato of
$7,600 a mllo, included In Oakes Ames'
contract, ulrcady Included in the preced
Answor: " I think tho required amount
