Jefferson City, Mo., March 23,
903. The 42nd General Assem
bly adjourned sine die at 10 o'clock
to-night, in accordance with the
resolution adopted by both branch
es of the assembly Saturday night.
Many theories are given as an ex
planation of the ha sty closing of
the assembly, but the predominat
ing idea is that the bribery investi
gations, which have been in prog
ress several days, are in a measure,
responsible for the early adjourn
ment of the session. Page and
Hickock were promptly landed in
jail Saturday when they refused to
answer questions asked them by
the members of the legislature but
were released by th Supreme
Court to-day, after the arguments
on the writs of habes corpus issued
Saturday but will in all probability
be summoned to appear before the
Cole county grand jury which was
organized this morning. Circuit
Judge Hazel read iron-clad instruc
tions to the jury regarding secrecy
of its proceedings and not even the
names of the witnesses can be ob
tained by newspaper men. It was
learned to-nierht. however, that
Speaker Whitecotton and Repre
sentative Barton, of the house
were among the witnesses exam
ined to-day. "They have played
the devil," said a democratic mem
ber of the lower house while wait
ing for train at the station here
to-night. "There was no necessi
ty for all this hubbub. The demo
crats are wholly responsible for it
all, and it will hurt the party in
1904." The court instructed the
jury to inquire into the necessity
of the Sunday session of the legis
lature ; also to investigate the giv
ing of free passes to members of
the assembly, but when these in
structions were read the majority
of the members of the legislature
were speedine away from the
Capital on trains. No tears were
shed by Gov. Dockery when the
distinguished body adjourned, nor
is his hand tired from bidding
them farewell. They have not
acted in accordance with the "Ad

contrary they have in many cases
