Tvitncii nt ToptliA during the canvais to
cotno to his room with l'of.d, at twelve
o'olock at night; Rood was sick nnd didn't

told Roud ho could i;et ofllco or tomo

him of the oiler of money, simply told
him to use hli Inlliictiie, ttikt hu (Pome

Dr. Roorbncber was called by Simpson,
Ho teitlfloJ that his scat in th! Kansas
legislature wai eouteitcd by his opponent!
tba committee on elections reported
against ti I in .
Roerbachcr totitled Porneroy told
him ho hnd heard Davis did not care
whom tie voted for, but wanted his ex
penses paid, and Porneroy said ho was
willing to pay Davis' expense, but would
not buy his vote; witness told Pomoroy
he thought he could buy Iiacon's vote, but
Pomoroy said he could not (;iro money for
his voto; subsequently Horton told wit
ness he (Uorton) waa not authorized to
pay money, but ho witness might offer
Racon $-2,000 if he would
volo for Porneroy j witness said Porneroy
never gave him a dollar to give to any
member of tho legislature, but admitted
sending a letter to Porneroy telling him
he had better send for him to testify on
this investigation; be also admitted ho bad
been convicted of burglary in Iowa, but
suid it was for tho crimo of another man
Itocrbacbcr's testimony conoluded by a
statement relative to himtolf, going to
provu that he hau been
tho victim of untoward cir
cumstnncc, nnd that he had boon par
doned by Governor Morrill who was con
vinced of his innocence, and when ho re
turned homo he was given a public wel-
como. In answer to a question of one of
the committee, If tho packago of money of
York's $7,000 bad arrived, P. appotred
that after it bad started for Washington
by oxpmssjt had been returned to Topcku
by an order from Washington, saying it
was not needod ; it was aj;ain on its way,
but had not yet arrived.
Isaac Skalloch testified he knew noth
ing of tho uio of the money by Pomoroy
to influence the eloctlon.
Tomeroy submitted a statement deny
ing that he ever gave authority or per
mission to any man to use money or any
vuludblu thing to control or influenco im
properly the vote ot uny mtmder of the
legislature, and explained the interview
with York as follows : "And now us to
tbojcliargu of this Mr. York and hi aiso
ciata conspirators, I will say tho true fact
have already been stated by witnesses,
audaho trausactlon ulready stated to be
puroly n business one, having no relation
whutever to his vote, which on several oc
casion I bad learned of bis pledging to
uio. About the last of the week before
tho day set for tho first ballot, 21r. Eld
rlJge, M. ,W. Reynolds, Mr. DcLong
and others, all from his
county, assueil mo, with inoro or li
positivenoss, of York's support; but soino
days before, I learned that I had, after
much deliberation, agreed to aid Mr.
I!. A. Page and associate!) to start a
national bank at Independence. Mr.
Pago had a privato bank, and having
satisfied myself of his ability, capacity
and fitness for tho management of such an
institution, I agreed to furuLh'him with
monoy suillolcnt, when met with his
own $'.',500 to make a sum sufliclont to
purchase thirty. United States bonds of
tho denomination of ono thousand dollars
each. Page urged and was anxious to
procuro tho money beforo he Iqft Topeks,
but I told him it was inconvenie.J ' me
to furnish over $2,000 then, but I would
got It soon, nnd he might dopond upon it
and make his araangomcnts accordingly.
At this time I mot at tho Tefl't house W.
II. Rorland, of ia 2nd national bank of
Leavenworth who inquirod of mo
If I should not want somo
currency before leaving Topoka, as ho
thought from appearances my hotel bills
would bo largo. At first I told him no.
Tho next duy I mot him and said I should
llko to got four thousand at forty or sixty
days, as I had agreed to kelp n friend or
ganiiw it National bank, and ho would
refund it as soon as ho got bis currency
from the government. He then brought
mo a package, aaid to contain fino thou
sand which I neyer opwicd or countod or
evor gavs ft note or receipt for, at tho
time. 1 put tho samo in my valise On
Monday night tho 27tb, Mr. York eau
ti ray room, having seen ma or taavli g
lent word sovoral limes, that ho would do
to, and t once began to report wait had
I boon going on in tho antl-Pomeroy
caucus. I beard til in tnrougb.
IJeforo leaving ho spoke of the favor I
had granted hi friend, Page, and said
Pugo had requested htm to get tho monoy
nnd forward it to his at Independence,
nnd that ho (York) would laave with it
soon after tho election for him. I told
liirn I was not prepared at that time to
furnish it although I had promised it to
Page beforo I left tho city. York said per
haps I had no confidence in him. I assured
bltn of my confidence, and told him
$2,000 was all I could furnish at that
time, and thought I would be able to fur
niih $3,000 more the nett day, tho
amount necessary I had calculated would
be from $5,000 to $8,000, to pay for the
bonds and their promlum, in addition
to the $1,00' Faje and his asiociatet
could fourntsh I then paid blm tho first
installmant of $2,000 and the
next dty I paid tho package
of $5,000 just as I had received tho samo
from llurhind, and neither gave liorland
my nolo nor took n n'oto from him, but
during that day I had sent Mr. King, at
ono time, and Sarn Porneroy at another,
to find Page, it ho had r.ot left tho city,
to inform him of tJl transactions, but
theso gentlemen both returned, nying
they were unable to find Page, and I rested
in tho belief that tho transac
tion was all right, till I heard
of tho misstatement of the facts by York
on tho floor of the joint convention. I
then denounced it us a conspiracy and
plot, and told my counsel here, Judgo
Uorton, '.ho whole story, and within a few
days left Kansas for Washington. This,
in brief, is the history of that charge of
bribery for which I asked of tbn senate a
committee to investigate, and ono act, tho
transaction with Pago and Ycrk.
I now solemnly declare, had
no reference whatever to tho voto of
York, and was made and executed entirely
independent of it. I mako this statement
upon my honor as a senator, and on my
oath, and I further specially deny, as I
stated In the senate, when 1 demanded
this Investigation, that I ever entered into
a contract or agreement, directly or In
directly, with any man or member
of the Kansas leglslatnre, or not for a
voto in my favor, or that I ever directly
or indirectly paid or promised to pay an
individual ono penny or any other sum
for his votn for mo in tho lato senatorial
election in Kansas.
Signed S. C. Pome no y.
Mr. Uorton withdrew Eldridge'i testU
monv, and tho casa was closed.
Frelinghuysen stated that tho commit
tee would thereafter decide whether it waa
important to bav tho money, shown by
York in joint convention, produced be
foro the committee.
Tho conirnittoo than adjourned.
Washington-, Feb. 20. The presi
dent's message In rotation to the fishery
clause in the treaty of Washington waa

Scnatur Schurz presented the creden
tials of Mr. Hogy, senator elect from Mis

Senator Carpenter said the Louisana
case was more important.
A some what leugtby discussion follow
ed which was participated in by Senator
Carpenter, Trumbull, Schurz, Morton
Thurman, Qill and others, and the condi
tion of Louisiana was commented on pretty
Senator Trumbull consured the president
for his action in regard to thnt stiite, and
Senator "Morton defended him. Finally
Morton announced his willingness to allow
the Caldwell case to go over to the extra
session, having received the assurance of
several sanators that no ndvantage would
be taken of such disposition of the case.
Senator Edmunds in tho chair, decided
that tho question boforo tho senate was on
the amendment to tho agricultural college
The discussion was then rosume'd, and
Senator Thurman moved to ky tho bill on
the table. Lost: 18 to 20.
After n long debato tho bill was refsrred
to a commlttoe of conferenco.
The vice president appointed Mortill
of Vermont, Sawyer and Stevenson tho
committee of conference on tho bill.
Senator Colo called up the army appro
priation bill, and several amendments
were reported from the committee on ap
propriations, which wcrn agrocd to, in
cluding tho following, reducing the

At 11:4 the speaker announced tha

Mr. Dutler of Massachusetts, as if un
prepared, moved that the house go Into
committee of the wbolo on tho legislative
appropriation bit), -whereupon Mr. Gar
field intimated thnt it would be just as
well for him to attend to hi own business
and leave the committeo on approrplations
to manage its own affairs.
The bouio then proceeded with the spe
clnl order, when the clerk read tho resolu
tions for tho expulsion of Ames nnd
Mr. Butler offered a substitute for tho
resolutions reported from the Poland com
mitteo, to tho effect that the criminal nets
complained of in tho report having been
committed before tho election of tho pres
ent congross, and may hava been commit
ted in tho District of Columbia, therefore
tho clerk of tho house should certify to a
copy of nil the testimony tnVen, so far as
relates to members to restrict tho attornoy
of tho United.Statcs for tho District of Co
lumbia, in order that ho can lay it beforo
the grand jury for such action as they
mny see proper to take.
Mr. Poland objected to the reception of
the resolution, and It was ruld out.
Mr. Poland then opened tho caio for
tho prosecution. In relation to the tacts
justifying the report of the committee, he
spoke for an hour and n half, ind made
nn eWbornto argument, to show that Ames
had been guilty of nn intention to bribo
members by selling them stock nt par,
which was worth two to thrco times that
amount. Ho ridiculod tho report of the
judiciary committee, presented yesterday,
that the house could not expel a member
for conduct prior .to his term, and
assailed Butler for the part ho took In tho
preparation of that report.
Mr. Beck ot Kentucky dispulod tho
point as to expelling a member for pre
vious acts, nnd said the homo was dis
graced by tho infamous characters, nnd
the trouble was as to the power to expo'
Mr. Poland cited two or threo casos of
oxpulslon by the English parliament, and
contended that congress had a right to do
anything parliament bad done.
When Mr. Poland concluded tho clerk
of the bouse proceeded to read
the argument of Ames, which
was listened to with tho greatest
attention. It gavo at longth a history of
tho Credit Mobilter transactions, and con
tended that it was unreasonable and un
just to accuse of bribery where it is not
shown aayoM tuU baas. briUd.
