being nblu to reach my tout in the senate,
to arrest, for the moment, tho busincsj of
tho session, In order to tnako u statement,
pertoual in its gotiorul character, to my
self, and ono which, in justice, h duo also
to members of this body, with whom
I have ko long been associated.
Senators ns individuals, as well as the
country, hiive had their attention called,
through tho proM, to tho late senatorial
election in Kansas, and have had some in
formation of h conspiracy there planned
plotted and executed for tho purpose of ac
complithing my defeat. Upon tho sub.
ject matter of that net of villiany un
paralleled in wickedness, my lips huvo
heretofore been silent for want of proper
placo and opportunity to speak. 1 now
propose to break thU sileneo. In your
presence, sir, in pmenco of my fellow
senators, and beforo tie country 1
publicly don; tho truth of each and every
chargo of bribery and corruption made by
tho chief instigator of this conspiracy, or
by whomsoever mado. I deny each and
every statement imputinq to mo any oct
inconsistent with moral rectitude and
correct conduct, and declaro all such state
ments to bo totally, absolutely and wick
edly false. 1 further specifically deny
that I oror entered Into any contract or
agreoracnt, directly or indirectly, with
any man or member of the K visas legisla
ture for a voto in my favor, or that I
ever paid liny Individual a dollar or nny
other sum to voto for mo in tho lata
senatorial election. I know tho pressuro
of public business, and am mindful of tho
groat labor imposed upon every senator
In tho closing days of an expiring con

though thoy may bo momburs of u state

tho impartial and unbiased Judgement of
tho committco of tho sonato may bo
reached whilo I am a mombor of this

of nny party bias In tho comportloti of
this committco. I shall bo especially
gratified if gontloinon from tho other side
of tbc chambor woro largoly represented
on Ilia committoo, that noithor mysolf or
nny political nssocinta should, bo even
