caio was resumed to-day, and after tho ex-
atninatioa of several vitnesiei Caldwell's
statement wa road, subitanlially as fol
lows ' Iu 'S"0 bo was induced to enter tho
conto.t for tho senate, as described ; lie tee
nies emphatically the statements of Clark,
Anthony, Carney und Hurk that tho elec
tion cost In in JflO.GOO or 170,000 or other
largo sum, or that hf, or Levi Smith in
his presence, declared hu would have tho
seat if it cost ?U5,0!0 ; all statement that
be had promised or given any considera
tion for,votes aro false; tho parties nutued
ate personal cnouiies; Carney enduavored
to induco Caldwell to withdraw from the
canva", and said he would withdraw if
Caldwc.il would pay $16,00, or would give
Caldwell twice or thricu that
sum if he would withdraw;
both propositions Caldwell declined, but
at a subsequent meeting accepted the first
and mid lliu monoy himself, ulthough
his friends oti'ered to raiaoit; he did not
agree to pay the expense of Stevens or
Clark or their friends on condition of re
ceiving their support i on tho way homo
from Topekn aftor tho election, Clark
ctnie to him and 'Hid in it much us hu
(Clark I win poor, and Caldwoll rluh, ho
defeated aud Caldwell succesiful, thut he
Caldwell hud been elected by bis iulluence,
It witi only fair that ho should pay Clark
oxpensoi', Caldwell replied that ho would
consider tho matter; nfter ho took his loat
iu the souatu Clark caniu to him and
ako 1 him to sncuru tho appointment of a
friend us postmaster ut Lawrence, ut tho
same time reminding him of his request
lor the payment of his expenses; this re
minder was repeatedly made, und finally
Clark domanded l,500 which hu refused ;
Clark said Caldwell could not all'ord to re
fuse, that ho would mako trouble ; Clark
then went to Kansas to s'tt investigation
on foot; Caldwoll never stated
that tho Kansas l'acllic railroad agreed
to share with him tho expenses
of election, and lind subsequently refused
to do so, or that said road should get
nothing through congress unlets that
agreement was ful Hilled; on tho contrary
he was on most friendly terms with
the otlioers of tho road, anil ono of his
first acts-iir tho (emtio was tho introduc
tlon of h bill drawn by thom for tho bone
lit of thu rriad. Caldwell tlun took up
und denied thu allegations of corruption
made against liliu during tho iuvotigatlon
and said in conclusion : "I will sny that
I lmve endeavored to uuswor every nccu
sation Iu evidence ottered, tending in any
way to connect ino with any improper
practices or uics of corrupt means to so
uuroiny election, and I now say generally
and upon my honor, that I never expen
corrupting any rncmbor of tho legislature
which electa 1 mo to tho United Slates
senate; I never promised or pail or au
thorized any 'ono to promise to pay money
or other reward for the purpose or with
the design of corruptly influencing any
voto in my favor ; I do not hesitate to
admit that I paid the usual and legitimate
expenses ordinarily incurred by candidates
on such occasion, and in pay
ment such bills I certainly did not deem
that I was guilty of corrupt or immoral
arts; what Indiscreet friends may have
suld or ilono during tho canvass I know
not, und surely should not be held respon
Morion announced that if the expected
witnesses and bank books arrived tbey
would bo examined, Hiid that Caldwell
would have an opportunity to reply to any
