Tho Outcome May limn mi Important
Hearing In Orgiinllng the Next i-en-
nto Senator Morgiiii, of Alabama,
DlHLilsses the (Jncstloii.
Washington, May 10. The condition In
which the Delaware senatorshlp was left
by the adjournment ot the legislature of
that stale yesterday Is legurded with
bpecl.il Interest In senatorial circles. It Is
believed that the case will piesent tome
aspects that are unique In the history of
the senate. It is held b some persons
that tho outcome of the contest ina) pre
vent tho organization of the senato by
the IUpubllcana at the beginning of the
next session, as tho Demoe'rats may llnd
It to theli Intel est to continue In control
of the committees as lone as possible.
The Delawaie question would be relened
to the committee on privileges and elec
tions, ot which benatoi Ura, of Delaware,
is now chairman, in ease ot a puiely pai
tlsan contest tho coutiol ot this committee
might be of no little Importance to thu
Senator .Morgan, of Alabimi, In dis
cussing the question, said. "Tho action
of the governor In the pieuilsis will be ot
Importance In detei mining the course of tho
senate when tho questluu of seating Ml.
Dupont shall eome up for conHdeiatlon.
Tho law requires a ceitllleaiu of election
from the gov ei nor, and while I do not
leel that I know siillleient of the facts in
this case to cpiess a positive opinion,
I should sa that the presumption would
be against a nun who idiould apply to bo
seated without presenting such evidence
of the validity of his claims, I know of
but one Instance ill which the senate has
s-eated u man In the absence ot a eertlllcato
of election from the gov u nor. and that
was in the case of Senator Colliding, whoso
ceitlllcate failed jo arrive on one occasion
in time for tho oiganUatlon of the senate.
In that case, howtwor. Mi Conkliug's
election "uas undisputed and theie was a
telegram saying that tho certlilcatu was
on the way to Washington.
"The only way in which tho Delaware
Democrats can legitimately secure a heal
ing in tho senato Is for Governor Watbou
to appoint a senator on the theoiy that
the legislature had adjoin ned without
electing, and this I presume, he would do.
In that event, 111 all probability, thero
would be a closo contest. 1 have dlfleied
from many of m Democratic colleagues
In holding that under such i ircumst mces
the governor of a state lirul a light to
appoint, and that when ho did appoint, it
was the duty of tho senate to seat the
appolntt e. This was the question Involved
at tho beginning of tho I'lfty-thlrd con
gress In the case of the appointments from
Washington. Montnnn and Wjomlng, and I
took a position in favor of seating theso
men. You will remember, however, that
tho verdict of tho senate was against

Yesterday it looked certain th it Peers' sub
stitute fellow servnns bill would pass the
senate, nnd there was Jut the ghost of a
show that It would pass tho house. To
day theie Is little llkollluwd that It will
pass the senile nnd not the lemotest pos
slblllt) that It will get through tho lar(,ir
bod). There are two reasons for this sud
den unpopularity of tho bill. In the llrst
plico the visit )esterlny ot Messrs. Hlod
Bett, Cochran und Hpencei, general solici
tor of the Wubi.sh, the .Missouri Paclllc
nnd the HurlliiBton, respectlvelj', was 111
timed. They came when there was much
talk of lobbj and lobbjlsts. The sudden
sidetracking of the sen Uo In order that
the attotnejs might be heird aroused sus
picion and the members are afraid that a
vote for the bill the railroads favor wilt
confirm that suspicion. Hut the attack on
railway labor organizations contained In
the proviso submitted by Sir. Cochnn, ot
tho .Missouri Paclllc, Is tho one thing Hut
insures oblivion for Senator Peers' bill.
As one member ot the house ho is a
Democrat, too said: "There may be Jus
tice on Sir. Cochran's proviso, but it can't
get my vote."
There la a general belief tint the piss
age of tho Peers bill, ns It Is proposed to
amend It, would mean either the nullifica
tion of the- law or the disruption of the
railway cmplojcs' unions. The railroads
would certainly elilm th it If they were
compelled to emplo) men under the con
tracts required by the unions they could
not be held tesponslble for Injuries caused
by the negligence or Incompetence of a
fellow servant for tho proviso expressly
sajs "that no servant who mnj- be Injuied
!) the negligence of a fellow .servant shall
have a light lo lecover for, or on account
of, such Injuries; If, at thu time such In
juries are Incurred, there exists nny con
tiact or arrangement either made directly
by slid servant with his employer or bj
nu) one else with said emplojei. In the In
terest or for the beuellt of said servant,
wlierebj the sole und unlimited right of
his emplojer to discharge, suspend, retain
or re-Instate said servant Is In an)- way
limited, controlled or restricted." Railway
emplojcs would either bo compelled to
withdraw from their unions or be de

The senate transacted no business what

question of personal privilege and siys he
did not dodge the vote on the anti-lobby

The house devoted the morning hour to
memorial services on tho death of Repre

Stessrs Sivanger, Storan and Woodsldo
presented lesolutlons qulto eulogistic In

opposed It on tho ground that it Inter

adoption by a big majority, but Hammond,
of Jackson, sent to the clerk's desk a re
port or statement Ho said no charges
had been mado before tho committee, and
extended an Invitation to nny state olllcer
or member of tho house to come forward
und make charges.
Itothwell, of ltamlolph, a member of the
committee, declared that no meeting of the
committee had been held and that tho re.
port of Hammond was made without his
knowledge or consent.
Davidson, of Slnrlon, presented a resolu
tion requesting tho committee on labor to
report house bill No. 11, a fellow servant
bill, by 11 o'clock. It failed of ndoptlon. but
i few minutes later Sir. Davidson moved
to reconsider tho vote
Sir Itothwell again made life a burden
for the Democrats. Again he taunted them
with political posing, ngnln he rung the
charges on Stone's letter to Mallard. The
Itepiiblleans were leidy to piss a fellow

were going to do.
A motion for the regular order shut off

HOUItltONS NEED WATCHING.
Senator KenuUli Call Atti utloii to Soma of
'ilielr Si i ret Hurl..
Jefferson City. SIo., Slay 10. (Special.)
An Incident tending to show how necessary
It is to watch Democratic -votes on fellow
servant legislation occurred Just after the
senate labor committee was called to order
last night. Senator Kcnnlsh, of Holt coun
ty, a Itepubllcan leader, arose and protest
ed against Messrs. Ulodgctt, Spencer and
Cochran, the railroad attorneys, being
heard at that time. He said tx-Senator
Cochran, of St. Joseph, had been here the
first of tho week to argue on behalf of the
railroad employs. He had been denied a.
hearing because the railroads were not
represented. Now Senator Cochran was
not here, but the committee proposed to
hear the railroads.
Then Senator Kennlsh went on to say
that live Democratic senators Yeater,
Gosh, SlcCllntlc, Maskett and Sladlson
had held a conference with the railroad
attorneys behind closed doors that after
noon. And ho forced the senators named
to admit the truth of his statement.
The charge of tho senator from Holt pro.
duced quite a sensation and Senator Peers,
also a Democrat, afterward remarked that
had I.) man, Ore bard, Good)koontz and
Harrison done what the five Democratlo
members of the committee had done they
would have been banged before morning.
Of n Personal Nature.
Jefferson City, Slay 10. (Special.) The
plea of Alex Q. Cochran for a fellow serv

railroads, made before the senate commit

no intent to deceive or defraud, It Is pioper
to say that, b) simply making the vouchers
read "foi extra services." or something of
