And So the Senators Will Try
to Make Them.
WEITS FOS THE RECALCITRANTS,
Being- the Newspaper Men Edwards, Shri
vrr and Walker, Who Printed Accnaa
tlons Ae-atust Mrs In High Places and
Rrfoae to Give the Aeeasers Bill
Pleads for the Correspondents and
Thinks the Senate Is Helpless.
Washington, May SO. The matter ot
Interest in the senate was the report ot the
Mtjtnr trust investigating committee. ' The
pith of that report is a recommendation
that "the president of the senate certify as
to each witness h's aforesaid failure, to tes
tify nnd his aforesaid refusals to answer,
and all the facts herein under the seal of
the senate to the United States district at
torney of the District of Columbia, to the
end that each of the witnesses may be pro
ceeded against in a manner and form pro
vided by law" the aforesaid witnesses be
ing the correspondents who after printing
the most scandalous stories involving the
president ot the United States, the secre
tary of the treasury, and senators in infa
mies that should impeach them if true, re
fused to state where they got their infor
mation. Had a Warrant Prepared.
Senator Gray prepared and submitted to
the vice president a warrant directing the
district attorney of the District of Colum
bia, to proceed against the witnesses Ed
wards and Shriver, under the act of 1S57.
This warraut certifies the facts set forth
in the report and is signed by the vice
president. Senator Gray had a consulta
tion with the vice president when the writ
ten document was first presented to him
and explained that it. w.ts to be issued
when the senate authorized it. The re
port ttives in full the testimony of Ed
wards and Shriver, and also that of a doz
en senators who flatly declare every
chanre made in Edwards' letter a lie out
of whole clot h.
Hill Has a Few Objection.
When the report was before the senate
Hill opposed the action proposed. He said
he had no personal iuterest in the iuvesti
cation. Ho thought it proper enough to
investigate the charges of attempted
bribery, but be doubted the wisdom and
propriety of this proceeding. Whether
newspaper men always told the truth or
ever told the truth was a question which
if the senate entered upon it would keep it
busy until the end of time. Allen, a mem
ber of the bribery committee, interrupted
Hill to say it was not the truthfulness of
the correspondents that the committee
was charged to investigate; It was whether
attempts had been made to brilie senators,
whether the sugar trust bad made the
large political contributions for the pur
pone of influencing legislation and whether
the senators had been speculating in sugar
Some Moral and Legal Question.
He atked Hill if be contended that the
senate had no right to investigate the
charge that the senators had speculated
in sugar stocks.
"Not exactly." replied Hill, "but I have
grave doubt if a senator should come be
lor a committee and refuse to answer
questions relating 1 3 his private business
whether the committee could compel him
to do so. The decisions cf the courts are
"Dues the senator believe a senator
could invest in sugar stock with out that
investment influencing his voiei-'' inquired
"The senator confounds the legal
question," replied Hill, "with the ques
tion of propriety. A senator who specu
lates in sugar stock violates no law."
"But," interrupted Allen, "it would not
be more proper for a senator to invest
money in any enterprise to be affected by
his vote than it would be for a judge on
the bench to render a decision in a case in
which he was interested."
"A senutor has a legal right to do what
is not prohibited."
"A legal," returned Allen, "but no
"One question at a time," said Hill. "He
would have as much right as a senator
who, lieiug an owuer of a silver mining
property, would vote on the siver question.
If pending action ou the sugar schedule a
senator should speculate in sugar it might
be an act of impropriety, but it would not
constitute a crime."
WHAT HILL WOULD DO.
He Would Call tvery. Senator and Ask
Him if He Waa Gnilty.
Hill then went on to say that the com
mittee should call the senators who were
accased, not the newspaper men, and when
asked how to proceed when the charges
were so indefinite that the senators were
not known be said call them all. In fact
Hill's idea was apparently that anything
was better than requiring a man who
makes charges of infamy against high
oflicials to prove histcborges when he is a
newspaper man. Gray said the senate
committee was like a coroner's jury, and
wanted Hill to say whet her a witness mak
ing a statement that he had heard that
one man had been killed by another could
refuse to give his authority.
Hill parried that question by saying
that the two cases were not similar be
cause at a court trial eyewitnesses were
wanted and right then Gray bottled up
the New York man by the remark, "Well,
that's just what we want." The point of
the committee on this phase of the ques
tion is that the corresiMindcnt is not the
eyewitness, but he says he knows who the
eyewitness is, prints broadcast what the
eyewitness says accusations that if true
should ruin the men accused and then
refuses to say who the eyewitness is so
that accused can be brought face to face
Hill said that if a newspaper man had
made a statement reflecting upon him the
first thing he would do would be to de
mand that he (Hill) be called. He added
that he opposed the warraut business be
cause, first, the correspondenUi were New
Yorkers and represented New York pa
pers, because he wanted to present his
views; and because the senate had no right
to go further than it has gone. He was
defeated, however, and the committee ob
tained what it asked for in the resolution
recited in the beginning of this dispatch.
EXTRACTS FROM TESTIMONY.
A Few of the Mare Important Things the
Some of the best passages between the
committee and the correspondents as
given in the report are as follows:
The chairman read to Edward the por
tion of his letter in which he stated UuU
Secretrcy Carlisle had secretly visited the
Demort.itic memliers of tho finance com
mittee and he had demanded that the
sugar interest be taken cure of because
the Democratic party was under obliga
tions to the sugar interest, ilus Ivlward
said was quoted from his remembrance
of what his informant said, but.be refused
to give his lnformant.ou tiie usual grounds
of violating a coufMuucc.
'The informant hud ,iven EJ wards near
ly all the statements iu the famous letter
as to the meeting of senators in a Wash
ington hotel with representatives of the
sugar trust; also the statement that the
sugar schedule was in the hands of Moore
and Schley, brokers liefore lieing reported
to the senate, and also as to tho statement
that the Sunday In-fore the tariff bill was
reported there had been a delegation of
sugar trust representatives: at the Capitol,
who dictated the sucar schedule. It was
the saute way with Correspondent Shriver
he printed the accusations and would
not tell who made them.
He had written in his letter: "There
arc a number of senators who will be glad
if this investigation should fail simply lie
cause then they coul.l charge the corre
spondents with circulating scandalous re
ports and have another chauce to denounce
the press upon the floor of the senate.
Hut if the newspaper men are given a
chance to tell all thev know some interest
ing developments will be made."
The part of Elwards' testimony relating
to Cleveland's interests in tho sugar ques
tion was explained by him as follow-:: "In
September of last year I met a gent leman
who spoke to me about an article 1 had
written concerning an. operation upon Mr.
Cleveland's j iw for raucer or malignant
growth, which ocration had taken place
some weeks liefore upon Mr. Benedict's
yacht. Titis gentleman said to me: 'As
important as that news is, there is some
thing inor? important to this country be
sides the fatal disease, nnd which is now
brewing.' I asked him it' it was some
thing wiiich he could give me. Ho said
not then, liecause he was under couGdet.ee
not to do it."'
Later, when ha had the information that
an attempt had ix-en made to restore the
queen of Hawaii, and that it had failed,
this ueutlcuian stated that was the news
which he hud nnd could not give. "My
recollect ion is that ho either told me it
was on Mr. Benedict's yacht, lit his place,
or at some resort, a pleasure excursion of
some kind. Mr. li.ivenieyer, Mr. Benedict,
Mr. Cleveland and some others were pres
ent. Tiiere had been a general conversa
tion about the Hawaiian islands sugar in
terests and I think he said it was Mr.
"At 11 events it w.is said !y some one
cf tiie pr.r.y, that, there would lie a sensa
tion in the country bfurj congress met.''
The chairman Who said it
Edwards Either Mr. Havemyer, Mr.
Benedict, or some one in the party; be
cause it would betht-a found that there
was peace in ii i.v.i.i ud tiie queen would
be restored. This gentleman was a Col
onel II. W. K IL.yr. of Greenwich. lie had
lieen speaker ot t he Connecticut legisla
ture. Edwards said be had not talked with
Col tuel Hos-t since he had w ritten his
letter, and that the colonel is now dead.
The committee's report recommends the
arrest of the recalcitrant witnesses uuder
the law which provides that a witness who
refuses to answer questions put by a con
gressional committee shall lie deemed
guilty of a mis demeanor, punishable by a
fine of not more than fl.uoj nor less than
$100. and by imprisonment in a common
jail of not more than one year nor less than
a mouth. The law especially provides that
no witness shall be excused from testify
ing on the ground that such testimony
would disgrace him.
C'ulloni's New Interstate II ill.
Washington-, May 30. Suuutor Cullom
said of the new interstate commerce bill
introduced by him that the bill was sent
to him and introduced by request. He
had not examined the bill carefully, but
thought there might be some good iu it
which could be sifted out by the commit
tee. The gentleman who sent it to him
was an experienced and carelul business
man and had good ideas on the subject of
the bi!L Cullom says that he does not
care to be understood as an endorsing ail
chut the bill contains or any of it.
