Wasiun'otov, SepL 27. hi. the sen
ate yesterday itflefiiotJfi Mr.-Stewart
ipsumed the Hour and ryad from a
paper an article ou the president's
alleged rebuke to the senate.
Mr. Palmer, Democrat, of Illinois
asked whether it was consistent with
the proper relations batweeu the
senate and tho president to icail iu
the senate grave charges ngitnst the
executive for which he (Mr. Stewatt)
would not bo responsible.
Mr. Stewart said it was consistent
for him as a senator to defend the
senate when the press said the presi
dent was rebuking the senato uud
calling the senators crimiu tls.
Mr. Palmer wanted Mr. Stewart to
indicate a single instance in which
the president had employed patronage
to eoutiol a MMiator or member of tho
"Why, my dear sir," said Seitalor
Stewart in a patronizing way. 'these
charges Ii:im' b"on made iu the public
presn. the proofs have been In ought
home heie an I before I indicate liny
one w ill yoil deny Unit patronage litis
been given to those who will suppoil
'If the senator him iclf, upon his
own responsibility in n .senator," re
plied Mr. Palmer, will miike a
chutgo of that sort, I will confess that
1 believe It to be correct or I will
deny il; but the idea that the presi
dent or hi.1) friends aie to deny the
charges, made against him in the
jat-ers, seems to me most astounding."
Mr. Stewart reiterated that the
chin ge had been made in Hie panei.s
"Will the senator name a single
senator whom lie knows or believes
his been inlluenced by the patronage
of the pie-iidenl? ' asked Mr. Paluur.
"Does the senator waut me to malie
a personal matter of this and dwindle
Ihisdiiw.i in this way'.'' asked Senator
Mcwhrt and then us if disgusted, "(),
pshaw!" lie asked Mr Palmer if he
would vote for u resolution authoriz
ing un investigation of the ipiostiou.
Mr. Palmer sti id he would when Mr.
Stewart would make a charge against
any senator or mctiibur of the house.
' 1 do not waut to conline it to one
senator or inemberT" sa d Mr. Stewart,
amid laughter. "Investigate them If
"I will. "replied Mr. Palmer. "When
ever the senator brings forward a
chin ge against any individual in the
senate, 1 will ote for an investiga
tion." When I make a criminal charge
against a particular individual," said
Mr. Mewurt contemptuously, "the
senator from Illinois will allow it to
be investigated, but ho will not pro
tect the honor of his executive in de
nying these wholesale ehaiges. lie
wants me to make a criminal charge
against a senator."
.Mr. Palmer wanted to ask another
question, but Mr Stewart declined to
be interrupt d. "I will not make
pi rsonal charges when the air is full
"They are very windy," Mr. Palmer
managed to say.
"Yes, they are vety windy," repealed
Mr. StewarL "They blow down upon a
good many senators and members"
ILaughtei'l He then lead a long art
icle from the San Fran isco F.xamiucr,
commenting upon the course of the
president. Mr. Stewart closed his
s eeeli for the day with a passionate
indictment of ihe executive as "a
monster that stalked through the
country brc iking down theinterests'of
heven stales anil territories; that claim
ed to direct the legislation of copgress,
and whose voice hail been heard last
week on the cast front of the capilol re
buking Hie senators "
Mr. Morgan lose to a personal ex
planation, leferrlngto tho article in
the New York Times of yesterday that
no honorable Democrat could listen
to that part of Senator Stewart's
speech eril cisiug the president and
fontiniin to act with him in obstruc
tion to ropcal, "uiiluss. as up fear Is.
the case with Senator Morgan.hu Is
so iuiplai-ab'e and unreasonable an
enemy of the president that he subor
dinates the highest question of privi

people indicating their great interest
in the icsull of the present struggle.
The two weeks' debate ou the

who opened for the Democrats. In a

Mr. Tucker then proceeded to pay
his respects to John I Davenport,
who.e atrocities, he said, were more
infamou; than those of the Duko ot

iu the absence of Vice President Stev
enson, who is attending u Democratic
meeting in Pennsylvania, promptly
ordered a roll call, a: though the jour
