A GENTLE ROAST

To a lu-solution of tho Semite In
Deference to tho Issue of Panama
Hoods.-Senator Aldrich Defends
Cortelyou and Malu? Excuses for
Him, Which Causes .Senator Till
man to Cse Sumo Caustic Domarles.
Just before tho United States
Se?alo adjourned Tuesday Senator
Aldrich received a letter from Sec
retary Cortelyou explaining tho de
lay that has hoon experienced in his
reilly to the resolution calling on
him for information concerning the
recent Panama canal bond Issuo and
tho letter was promptly laid before
Hu; senate. Earlier in tho day Sena
tor Tillman Indulged in caustic com
ment upon what ho characterized
as the secretary's apparent "diso
bedience" to a sonato resolution.
In his lotter Mr. Cortelyou said:
"I am sorry that there should
have beim a misunderstanding as to
the time when my answer lo the
sonato resolution regarding the
treasury operations would bo sent In.
Had I been advised of your request
to knew when ii might be expected,
1 would have replied that I required
a little more time to go over Hu;

desire, ol course, that all business ?
of this kind shall be disposed ol' ?

"Nothing yet," responded the vice >
"lt ls a little curious thal an of
ficier of tho government should be
willing after wo have given him c.on
uidorablo Hmo to send in the Infor
mation," said Mr. Tillman. "Tho cur
rency bill ls to bo brought In and
pressed for consideration and it
seems strange that thc; secretary of
tho treasury who ls directly respon
sible-, for our financial affairs should
rofuso to send In a report giving tho
information wo need."
Chairman Aldrich of tho finance
.ommltteo, who was out of tho room
when Mr. Tillman made tho Inquiry,
reentered tho room at this juncture,
just aa Senator Platt suggested that
ho bo called.
"Wo aro told," said Mr. Tillman,
"that Secrotary Cortelyou ls 111, but
ho was not too 111 to go to New York
to make a speech. It seems extra
ordinarily phenomenal that wo can
not get a report from him."
"Tho fact ls." said Mr. Aldrich,
"tho papers were in form to bc; pre
sented and they wine placed before;
Secretary Cortelyou, but he found in
order to make thc; presentation to
tho sonato in a form satisfactory to
himself would require a longer lime
than was supposed.
"The criticism In tho sonate as to
that action led the; secrotary to make
a frank and explicit answer to all
suggestions as to what was done;

Mr. Tillman. "As soon as possible

"This circulai' made no reservation

"This is purely an executive function
and whoa tho facts are brought out
I think they will show that the sec
retary of tho treasury has utterly
disregarded tho law in his anxiety,
laudable as it may have boon, to

Mr. Tillman then turned to Mr
Aldrich and Indulged in nome per
sonal references to him. Ho declar
ed that nothing could have consider

out of tho chamber.
"Wo have to sit hore," ho said,
"until his great personage comes

Mr. Tillman declared that tho Re

who ventures to answer them.
The wise man's name is Professor

We often meei in our dre. ms peo j
