At each recurring pay day Commissioner

ly salary, lie submitted to the extortion,
ho said, because ho was poor and needed
tho Job, nnd was afrnld that ho would bo
discharged If ho raised a protest. Finally,
ho took the advice of friends and report
ed tho matter to Coventor Morrill. Mr.
Spcer told n straight story and was not
shaken upon cross-examination. With his
testimony the state closed Its case.
For the defense. Miss Hayes, formerly
stenogiapher In tho labor oiHce, testllied
that the commissioner had also received a
portion of her salary each month, but that
it was upon nit agreement made beforu
she elite! wl tin- ofllcu.

half and freely admitted that he had taken
parts of both .Mr. Spcer's and .Miss Hayes'
salaries, but said It was with the entire
consent of both, and the money bad been
expended lor the legitimate expense of tho
ortice. On cross-examination he said ho
had put the money thus procured In his
pocket, with his private money, nnd spent
It as ollleo nlfalrs demanded. He said bo
bad kept his llnnnei.il accounts In a vest
pocket memorandum book and on loose

senate was brief again to-day. It only
feature-, beyond tho Introduction ot a bill
by Senator Chandler, of New Hampshire,
for the free coinage nf sMlvor when l.n
gland, Franc- nnd (lefmnny should ennd
rlmllnr legislation, were a. resollillon by his
cnlleiigue, Senator LlnllltiRer, declnrlng It
ti be the sens.- of the senate that It was
unwise and Inexpedient to retire the green
backs, and n short upecch by Hennlor Call,
of Florida, in favor of tho recognition ot
the CiiImii revolutionists as belllgerentt.
Mr. Call drew a graphic plelurti of the
misgovernment nnd barbarous cruelty
against which the Cubans were contending
and their long struggle for freedom. He
described the former revolutions and de
clared that the progrcw ngalnst tyranny
made by tho iiiitlv Culmim. who main
tained, as we had maintained In 17", that
Just government must derive Its authority
from 'the consent of the governed, entllled
them to recognition as belligerents and the
neutrality ot other nations.
'mi4lilri-H It' nil Outrage.
He considered it an outrage If the I'nlted
States should not bold out nn encouraging
hand to those who were struggling for In
dependence. Hut Instead of speeding the
Cubans on their course, he Insisted that
this government was actually retarding tho
revolution, was In fact furnishing aid to
the Spanish tyrant. "This government."
said Mr. Call, emphatically, "Is responsible
for many of the oul rages that have been
committed. I do not mean to say that the
president and lilt cabinet are responsible,
but the attitude of this government nega
tively, bv not recognizing the revolutionists
as belligerents In our ports and territory,
is maintaining to-day tho power ot Spain
on the Island of Cuba."
In concuslon he described CuIki as the
queen of the Antilles, the future center of
a confederated republic, that would include
all the Islands of the West Indie", nnd
called upon the committee on foreign af
fnlrsi to consider bis resolution in Hie spirit
of our forefath-rs and report It favorably
at an early date.
Then, at 1:3), the senate went Into execu
tive session, nnd fit 1:35 p. in. adjourned

Washington, Dec. ii. Speaker ltecd Is con
sidering u plan to divide the work on
contested election caseS by foimlng two
election committees In . the hnttsc. This
plait, If adopted, would grenlly facilitate
the work of disposing of the contists be
foul the house; nnd would give the con
testants who may bo found to be entitled
to seats for which others now hold cri
llflcntes their rights sooner than they
might obtain them otherwise. Theio are
thirty-two contests on band and thev will
furnish much wmk for one committer to
grapple with. The business of this com
mittee corresponds largely to that of a
court, as It hears all the evidence fu every
enso and then votes upon It and reports
to the house. It Is said that the nuestlon
of economy counts with Mr. Heed fu the
matter, for when a. member Is unsealed,
the salary for tho position during tho

both of file el.ilmiiula, as well as the ex

Speaker Heed said to-day Hint It had
been the l nle to give a enngressman-at-laige
a better committee place than a man
who simply represented a district. This Is
supposed to mean that Colonel Itlue has a

Chlcngo, Deo, R.-A upeelnl to the Times
Herald from Its Washington correspondent
War between the fulled Stntes ami llro.it
llrltnln In threatened. It can be avoided
only by surrender on the purl or Ktmland.
The contention over the Monroe docttlne
has reached a stage which will produce
the gravest anxiety on both sides "t th"
Atlnntlc until the facts become known.
If the American eotiRTcss will support the
president, nnd of this there can be n
doubt, Hreut llrltaln will soon be given the
choice of surrendering: or lighting.
I'pon authority which cannot be ques
tioned, rends the dispatch, it Is known that
this government has received a cablegram
from Ambassador Hny.ird giving bt Icily
the contents of the note which the Manpils
of Salisbury has mailed In reply to Sereln
ry nlney's dispatch of last July. This reply
Is in sub-tance a refusal to arbitrate any
of tho terrltoty eastward of the SchombtirK
.Moreover, Lord Sail frttry raises n new
case: He now contend that the Schotn
btirg line was not urbllinrlly inn; that It
was. In fact, located upon authentic data,
and that It cm lie proved by the records,
the treaty descriptions and the maps that
It correctly retnesetits the western limits
of the territory which (Jreat llrltaln ac
quired by cession from Holland.
ltecelpt of this information caused some
cllemcnt In Washington government
circles. Secretary Olncy at once proceeded
to confer with the president about It. They
ugieed III their opinion concerning it. This
opinion was that the Hrltish premier was
trilling with the merits of the question;
that he was attempting to evade and delay
direct response to tho principal Issue In
volved, and to bring on a controversy be
tween the two governments as to histor
ical records and topographical facts. Such
a controversy, the piesident and secretin y
agreed. If once entered upon, might tun
nn Indefinite length.
The piogrammo which the president nnd
the secietary now have In mind Is. Ilrst, to
ascertain the wishes of VetiezneU In Ihe
piernln.. If Venezuela. Is willing to arbi
trate on the Schombiirg line, then the
mis-Inn of the Fulled States Is, for the
tliin- being, at an end. V nessueln. has re
peutcdly refused this, and It is not i xpect
ed she will give III now.
Once being assured of ctiezucla's un
wllllnstness lo submit to Hnglnnd's lue
tenslon, the president will refer the whole
matter to congress ut all early day Tor
such action as that Imdy may see lit to
take. The correspondeiH'i) will be accom
panied by a nic-stige trom the pr.sldeiu
explaining' the situation, but probably con
taining no recommendations. Congress, as
the onlv win-making uwer. will be left
to its own determination, uninfluenced save
by facts. When t tils moment arrlv, s, the
cx.-ctitivo will have exhausted his ic
youtves. The future course of Hie conten
tion will rest with the national legislature.
H is e ted. howewT, that congress will
at once authorize Hie president lo l.-sue
an ultimatum that will cause Ktiglumi to
back down, or fight.

Chicago, Dec. 5. lohn J. Ingalls passed
through the elty to-dny from Mattoon.
where he spoke Wcdm-day evening. Ite
fening to the dispatch from Topcka about
the anger of Kansas for his failure to
appear at the iieetlng of ihe Million Club,
Mr. ingalls said he did not accept the In
vitation to speak on that occasion and that
the managers did not expect that he would
be able to attend. He did not ilx the diilc
of the meeting, nor did he telegraph from
Jauesvllle, where he spoke Saturday night,
that he was snowbound, nor send any ex
cuse. When the meeting was originally pio
posed, .Mr. Ijigalls told the promoters that
he had nppoluimetit.-. on the lecture plat
furm that would oci upy him till April, and
that he had no time for pr. partition. I'pon
representations thai his name being on
the piogramme would add to the piospeets
of success, Mr. Ingalls dually agreed that
It might be announced Hint he bad been
invited and would appear unless piecnted
by previous engagements.
So far as Mr. Hurion is concerned, Mr.
Ingalls said to the managers that he hoped
he would be invltid and, thut be had no
doubt bi-i address would n Id much to the
Interest of the occasion.

Chicago, Dec. ,". A combination, or what
Is known as an association among ice deal
ers In tills city. Is assured. Those who
deal in the cooling substance admit thls.and
say they think If Hie association Is tint
formed, several of the smaller companies
will have to retire from business. Some
years ago there was an association among
Ice dealers, the object of which was to
keep prices up, but the law against trusts
was passed, and the association wound
up Its nffalrs. A movement to reorganize
this combine, under n different name, is
un foot. lee men. It is declared, will be
more independent thuii lias been their
wont, boilsekeepets will have lo do morn
coaxing than hitherto 111 order to get Ice
delivered, and, nltogether, il will be moio
plcnmiiit for the dealers. The price will
be up, wnv up, so those who nuiko a study
of such nlfalrs declare. Tills will all lake

lie ready for the put chaser by summer.
