chaplain coupled with conditions that
they shall not enter on the discharge of
their duties until the 30th of June next, tip
to which time the present incumbents are
to remain in office, were offered in the sen
ate yesterday-and weut over. The case of
Senator Roach, of North Dakota, was
brought before the senate in the shape of a
resolution, offered by Hoar, directing the
committee on privileges and elections to
investigate the allegations of criminal em
bezzlement and to report the facts. This
resolution also went over.
Will B an Open Senate Fight.
The introduction by Gorman of the sen
te caucus resolution providing for a re
organization of the force of senate officers
means a transfer of the struggle from
secret session to the open sessions of the
senate. All compromise having failed and
all attempts to adjust the matter amicably
in private having come to naught the fight
is now to be waged in the open field. J ust
what the outcome will be cannot be pre
dicted, but there is reason to be
lieve that i both sides are half
hearted in the matter, and it is
safe to say that a majority of the senators
really do not feel sufficient interest in the
reorganization to make a very spirited
contest on either side of the proposition.
Of course this seeming apathy may vanish
as the fight progresses and hard things are
said in the course of the debate.
The Proposed Roach Inquiry.
Careful inquiry discloses the fact that
the resolution looking to the investigation
of the charges against Roach w-re pre
sented by Hoar of his own volition and
not as the result of any caucus action. It
is also evident that some Republican sena
tors do not look with favor upon the prop
osition. They hold that the acts of a man
before his election as a senator is not a
proper subject of investigation, provided
they have no Connection with his election.
In support o'this proposition one Repub
lican senator ciul .the swpurt atada to-th
house by General Butler when be was
chairman of the judiciary committee
which was called upon to pass ujon a sim
Bound to Investigate Now.
The- Democratic senators were plainly
vexed at Hoar's move, although tbey had
bad timely notice of his intention through
the medium of the newspapers. It is inti
mated that the Democratic steering com
mittee will consult upon the matter and
agree upon the course that shall be pur
sued in- the disposition of the resolution.
But if the opinions of the Democratic sena
tors are any indicat ion there does not ap
pear to le any feasible way to stop the in
vestigation now. Under the practice of
the senate any senator can secure an inves
tigation of almost any matter within rea
son and any attempt to prevent the present
inquiry might be looked upon as an ad
mission of guilt.
Wants It Made Sweeping.
One of the lending Democratic senators
said that even if Roach had committed any
offense as charged, it was when he w&3 a
young man; he had gone west and lived an
upright life and hud been a credit to his
adopted state.; Now if it were proposed to
go into an investigation of this kind it
might as well be made sweeping and take
in the personal character and antecedents
of every senator on the floor.
Birkerf eld's Old Stand.
EXTRADITION TO RUSSIA.
riie Clause of the Treaty that Is Really
' Objected To.
Washington, March 20. In connection
with efforts that are making in the senate
to have the seal of secresy removed from
the Russian jtreaty, it is stated that the
clause providing that attempts on the life
of a ruler shall not be political offenses is
not what is principally objected to. The
real difficulty's found hidden in the text
and of seemingly innocent purport so far
as anything political is concerned. TLe
treaty makes .the forgery of any govern
ment paper or document an offense for
which the guilty peison may be extradited.
Refugees -Force Their Passports.
It is well known that no political suspect
can escape from Russia without the aid of
a passport and that he cannot secure that
coveted document. Necessarily he is com
pelled to resort to the expedient of forgery
and the instrument that passes him
through the frontier is forgery the for
gery of a government paper. By this
means it is argued that the Russian gov
ernment has by virtue of the treaty rati
fied by the United States a veritable drag
net with which it can pull back to its
boundaries every man who makes his es
cape and punish him not for the political
offense, but the act of forgery. The result,
it is claimed, will be the same, for it re
moves the individual from every right of
asylum which he has gained by flight to
this country. '
Only Way to Stop It.
The treaty has already been ratine 1 by
the senate so the snatter has really passed
out of its hands and the only way in which
the treaty can be stopped is by a success
ful appeal to the president not to exchange
ratifications and promulgate it, a thing
he would be extremely disinclined to do
in view of the treaty having received more
than a two-thirds vote in the senate.)
