Senator Teller, I nd he spoke with the
confidence of a i ian who seemed su--e of

When asked w iat lie thought of the

senator said with ileliheration, as if weigh

about by a collus on and that its efiect
was deliberately j tanned in order to al

for the special sess on of congress and in
the apparent collatise ot silver secure the
