"Was then called by Sir. Simpson and tci
tilled thai on January 27,tfenator York in
vited liim to meet him at Simpson's
room at tho Tctlt house. Witness des
cribed tho occurcnco at that meeting the
saino as York described It yesterday. York
sent for him on 'Wednesday. Witness
went to his privato room; York showed
him $7,000, saying lio recoived it from
l'omoroy. I asked htm how hu felt; ho
said, "llorton, l'vo had a fearful struggle
over this thing." I think ho laid he had
been praying over it, audible smiles but
that he was ull right now. 'Witness inn
joint conversation told tho lieutenant gov
ernor to recognize York if ho arose; tho
tioutenantgovurnor nodded. At tho pre
liminary meeting nothing was said about
opposing a rccoss, or tho final disposition
of tho money. The question whether tho
exposure should bo mado in tho scnato or
in joint convention was not discussed.
Cross-examined Was not a member of
tho legislature, his principal business nt
Topcka was to beat l'omtroy; ho and
Simpson bad not matured thu plan of ex
posure before York uskud him to contult
about It; the first tiino ho heard tho
matter mentioned was on tho "Oth of
January, in conversation with Gov. Os
borno, ho said tho legislature seemed
strongly opposed to Pomeroy ; Osborno
replied, " Yes, but tho 'old ems' will buy
his way through;" ho said ho might bo
defeated if some ono would take his moiioy
and tlion expose him ; witness might huvo
conversed with Simpson about thus de
feating l'omoroy boforo York was thought
of; ho was not working against l'omoroy
at tho Instance of tho Kansas l'acillo Hull
Tho prosecution horo (aid they had no

Tho committee decided that tho Invest),

bo brought to rt ipocdy close, so that tho
tonate could suit.
Pomeroy' counsel (aid they would
bo toady to proceed to-morrow morning.
The counsel for tho prosecution said
they wanted time, to get tho $7,000, which
was granted, nnd 'the committeo ad
journed till to morrow nt 10 o'clock.
The action of tho committee In con
fining tho investigation to tho chargo of
bribery is regarded by the prosecution ns
very fnvorabto to .Vomeroy, and made in

Simpjoii, acting ns counsel In the prosecu
tion of tho charges ngaiti't Senator
To the Senato of the United Stales :
I havo buun Initructod by A. SI. York
nnd others to respectfully ri quest thu sen
nlu to so enlarge tho subject matter of tho
inquiry of thu specUl committed as to re
ceive stntemunts of cerUin member of
the legislature of Knnta, who aro now
here, and others who hnvu been summoned,
tlnit they wero oflorrd money or oilier
valuable" consideration by ngonts and
friends of Senator I'omeroy to voto for
him in tlm election.
Signed. 11. F. SlMt'.-0N.
Senator rrolinghuyien, chairman of tho
special committee, thought tho petition
ought to lie over till to-morrow.
Senator Sherman moved tho petition bo
referred to tho committee.
Senator Ferrv of Connecticut, said if
thero were allegations that I'omeroy had
bribed others than York, and it tho com
mitteo found its authority was to limited
that it could not inquire into those allega
tions of bribery, thon, ccttalnly the scopo
of investigation ought to bo enlarged.
Senator Thurman, member of tho com
mittee, said there was no necessity for
referring the resolution to tho committeo.
The facts of the caso wero very simplo.
Tho senator from Kanias (I'omeroy) had
called the attention of tho senate, a few
days ago, to the fact that ho h id been ac
cused of bribery. Hu had denied, in very
broad terms, every chargo of corruption
or bribery of whatever nature, and had
concluded by otlering a resolution for tho
appointment of a special committeo of
investigation. That resolution, however,
limited inquiry to the single chargo of
huving bribed or attempted to bribe York.
Of course, ho would not ask for the en
largement of Its authority, but thu renate
might order If it chose.
.Senator Ferry of Connecticut, said It
was due to the senator accused, that a
manifest imperfection in the resolution of
ferred by I'omeroy himself, and adopted
by the tcnute, ought to bo corrected.
Senator Sherman thought tlo jurisdic
tion of tho committeo ought not to be en
larged in such a way as may prevent thu
committee from making a report before
tho end of tho sci'ion.
Senator Nye denounced York ns a rascal
who did not daro to petition the senato in
his own name, and argued that it was not
consistent with tho dignity of tho senate
to allow tho character of a scnutor to be
atsnlled by such a man in such a way.
Ho witrned senators that their reputations
jointly and severally s.wero at slake.
"Away, with theso investigations," said
Sir. Nye. YVo huvo had enough of
them; we aro having enough of them;
away with this Idea of catering to tho
morbid nppetito of parttcipo critninvi,
at least, and let Sir. i'omeroy and Sir.
what's his name settle their own difiicul
ties; thero is nothing that human mind
feeds upon like corrupt investigations."
Senator Conkling took substantially tho
samo view with Nye, as to tho propriety
of extending the scopoof inquiry, and ex
pressed tho fear that if this enlargement
wero ordered it would cnublo tho prose
cutors to occupy so much of tho brief re
maining portion of this session, as to leavo
no time for l'omeroy'a defensu. Ho nlso
madu some very severe remarks about
Senator Ferry of Connecticut said tho
senator from Kansas, Sir. I'omeroy, s
broadly and ompliatically asserted ids in
nocenco and challenged investigation that
ho could not havo intended to limit tho
investigation to this ono chargu, and It
was duo to him that tho senato should cor
rect tho oversight committed in drawing
tho resolution oll'ered by him, nnd adopted
by tho senate.
SonHtor Scott read l'omeroy'a denial and
request for investigation to show how
broad nnd sweeping it was, and said that
he folt bound to voto to givo tho committeo
whatever additional powers might bo re
quired to tnaku a thorough investigation,
Ser.utor Frelinghuyson wished to havu
It understood that no objection had been
mado by I'omeroy or his counsol to thn
additional evidenco oll'ered by tho
prolocutors, but it had been excluded by
tho committeo itself, as beyond tliu scope
of tho resolution creating tho commit
too. Senator Furry of Connecticut, oflered
tho following resolution i
Kosolvcd, That tho committeo charged
with tho investigation of tho chargun
against Hon. S. 0. l'omoroy bo directed to
Inquire into any allocations of bribery or
corruption by said I'omeroy in tho reuont
election of United Slates senator by tliu
legislature of Kansas.
Senator Sherman remarked that this
was a very dlll'ercnt proposition from that
made by tho petitioner, Simpson. This
resolution authorized inquiry into charges
of bribery or corruption by I'omeroy per
sonally, but tho petition went Author and
asked for an Investigation of brlbory and
corruption by Tomoroy's frlonds and

A virulent outbreak of typhoid fever in
sevurnl streets near tho Leeds (.England)
Town Hall, a few weeks nco, attracted the
attimliou of thu authorities. Tho epidem
ic, very fatal in its character, pursued a
somewhat eccentric course. It attacked
lamilies in souui parts of tho l'ushiunable
square.', and left others untouched. It
rngod in certain middle-class houses In
thu samo street, nnd passed over others,
it wii found tli nt tho drainngo in
some parts of tho affected districts was
, slightly defective. This did not satisfac-

thoitlcs next turned their attention to tho
food supply of tho infected houses, and it
win then discovered thai ono milk dealer
living in thu centre of tho town supplied
tho whole of thu infected houses. It
transpired that ho received bis daily
quantity from a farm near Harewood.
Thither tho health otlircrs of tho town

six persons theru tutfured from the fomr.

Tho theory is that tho germs of disoaso
in uio air settled down in tho milk cans
before they woro daily sent out with thoir
stock of lacteal fluid. Tho sanitary com
mitteo of tho Leeds town council nt onco
stopped tho salo of tho milk from this in
