TKAT "SILVER POOL,"
HUT LITTLE ntOOUESS MADE HYTIir.
INViaTIOATINtl COMMITTEE.
Senators Ktevrart, Teller nnd Woleott
Deny Any Knowledge of the Exist
ence of n "Combine" A Correspond.
cut Who Wns Approached nml Asked
to Dispose of t'eitlllentes In the Al
leged Pool.
Senntor Stewart, wlio lind been referred
to ns having made statements that a silver
pool existed, appeared before the ullver
lool Investigation committee to-day to
make a statement In regard tothcrciunrks
that had been attributed to him. lie said
he had talked frequently with various
ticrsons about the silver question. Ho
had opposed. In the Senate and elsewhere,
legislation for tho purchase of 1L',000,000
ounces or silver, said to bo accumulated
In New York, on tho ground that It would
litivo tho appearance or passing it special
act or Congres torellevu those who had
puiclmscd sliver.
The witness hml frequently said (hat
those who bad gone intospeculntlou must
tnkuenroof themselves uud what he In
sisted was permanent legislation which
would stop siKTiiliitlon by keeping the
pilicsleaify. Free coinage, ho thought,
would prevent fut,ure singulations. He
had tnado no rofcronco In his convcrsa
lions to nny members of Congress, lie
knew nothing with regard lo who had
speculated In silver.
As to himself, he had never bought or
sold sliver bullion except years ago when
he wns mining. Ho had not for several
years been IntcrcMcd in silver mining, di
rectly or inuirectty, eitner tlirouu;li Hold
ing stock or otherwise.
Ho had no knowlodgoof tho purchase
of nny bullion by a ikioI or association;
nor had he knowledge of unv cognizance
between owners of silver bullion nnd
members of Congress. The witness had
no know ledge of any conference nt hotels
In Washington between silver men to in
llttcnco silver legislation, and ho had no
know ledge of the owners of tho l'.'.OQO.OOO
ounces said to be now in sight, nor had
he offered any silver for purclinso.
In conclusion Senator Stewart snld lio
know of no connection, direct or Indirect,
bitwecii members or Congress and outsido
parties to Inlltieucc silver legislation.
II. AY. Hill of Washington, who said lie
was a lawyer ntid a newspaper writer, wai
tlionext witness. HesnUlhohad answered
an ndcrtlcmcnt that appeared In a
Washington paper In March last for a
journalist who could write on tho silver
question, lie met thendvertiser, u nun
lrom Chicago named Hodcnborg, and
agreed to make nit arrangement tn write
articles on tho silver question. Tho ar
rangement wns not nutdo, and lu April
the witness met Hedenherg In tho corridor
In the Capitol. Hidcubcrg .said that the
sliver legislation ns it stood then pleased
"i:" ho always used the plural, said llio
witness and that he did not want tho
articles written.
ircdenbiirg took from his ticket .somo
ingravcd slips or paper, which he said
were silver pool certillcntcs, to be disposed
of at a margin of &U tinlecc, nnd he asked
tho witness to try to sell some of them to
memuers ot congress, -j no witness ant
not examine the so-culled certllleates, aud
paid little attention to what lledenbitrg
said. He did not take any of the certlll
eates to dlsposo of, nud had no knowledge
that silver pool certllleates were oft ered to
tlictubers of Congics.
.lames A, Ocorg' ot Washington, n pro
vision dealer, said ho had boarded at the
samehouso lu this city with Hedenberg.
Ho had understood that llcdenberi; was In
favor or free coinage, and was surprised
when Hedenberg told him on tho day he
spoke to Mr. Hill lu lhe Capitol that he
was In favor of the House silver bill of
last session.
Hedenberg said to lilm, "This House
bill Suits us. Wu'v e got a ioI organized,
nnd wo hao about it million ounces of
silver on hand and can get more, and 1
want you to place these certllleates among
Southern mimbersof Congress." Heden
bdrghad previously exhibited to hliutlie
ccrtllluitcs shown lo Mr. Hill. Tho wit
ness had Indignantly lefused to lend him
self to such a scheme. Ho had told
Hedenberg that he (George) was a free
(oinagenian, and that he would expose
Southern members who could bo bribed
In this way.
Hcilcnbetg said that that ended mnt
tcrs. Since that time Hedenberg had
avoided thu wltnessou nil occasions. The
witness had no knowlcdgo that any Sena
tor, member Or other ollleerof tho (iov
eminent hud speculated lu silver while
the legislation was pending. Ho thought
Hedenberg was n retired real-estat broker
of some means. Hedenberg laid told the
witness that ho (Hedenberg) would look
after tho Illinois members.
Tho witness remembered telling a news
paper coi respondent that, from tho way
some members voted on the Silver bill, It
looked like they had been llxeil, but he
did not tell tho correspondent positively

Jvi:w Yoi:k, Jan. . Tho case of Wil
liam I'. Illicit, (ho young man who was
arrested nt thoCortlaudt-slrect ferry Tues
day evening by Detectlvo Vail of tho
Steamboat squad, came up in the Tombs
Police Court yesterday morning. Ithett
Is charged with having abdiKtesl Marv
Williams, n llitlc girl U years of age, who
sells dowers nnd papers near the ferry on
the Jersey City side.
Illicit gave Ids addres as 31 West Key
enticnth strcit, and also stated that he
wns tho cashier of tho .Savniiunh I'relght
Company, llhelt comes of into of (he
llrst famlllis lu thu South, and several of
his friends came to the Tombs to do what
they could for him.
lihitl presented his Mory In a very
straightforward way. Mary Wllllnms,
lhe ihilil. Is n remarkably pretty llttlo
thing, with n quantity of curly hair. Sho
wore a red Tain O'Shantcr and clonk and
a pair of rubber boots. Her story is
substantially ns follows:
ItliLtt met her mid four other irlrls In
Jersey t'tty .uosuity niglil, where they
were selling piqicrs. The other girls were
Kate riynn, Maggie Kelly and Alice aud
Mary Morris. 'I hey nil live in the same
Jersey City Tuesday night, where they
ncigiiiKirhooii and range in their nges
fromOlol..
Jlury Williams had never seen Illicit
until then, but some of the other girls
knew him quite well. The four girls
boardid the ferry-boat and went along
wllh Illicit. Maggie Kelly did not go.
When they reached tho city llin child
says that Illicit called n cab and asked
hcrtogo forn rldowith him. It does
not appear wheto the other thrco girls
were meanwhile, nnd nt this liolut of the
story Ihoy seemed to dlssolvclnto thin nlr.
Just as she wns stopping Into thu cab De
tective Vnll sprang forward and took both
Ithett and herself into custody. Tho po
lice iccelvod word that someone was tam
pering with these little girls about a fort
night ago aud havo been on the lookout
for tho man over since. Detectives Vail
and Schmldtbergcr, who were both in
court, nrc (onlideut that illicit is the man
they want.
Illicit, on his part, elcclarcs that ho saw
tho girls near the ferry on the Jersey City
side, and that they all pestered him to buy
their papers. Ho noticed that they were
on tho boat coming over, and as soon ns
they landed here the Williams child ran
toward him asking him again to buy a
paper. He bad just that moment called a
tab to take him to his homo on West
Seventeenth street. The child was then
'standing Within thrcu feet of him nud
Homering nun ns ocinrc. At tnat, instant
Detective Vnll laid hlshnndouhlsshoulder
and placed him under arrest. Hu claims
'that it Is entirely a ease of mistaken Iden
tity, and that he is wholly innocent of the
charge.

'J ho Supreme Court directed disihaige
of the prisoner, his convktloii being void

This decision ousts the Police Court of the

dred Orgntilwitlons A .Slgnlllenut Po
lltlnil Step.
An Impoilant convention of delegates,
rcpiescnllng the 1'iirmers' Alliance', the
Notlonnl rarmcrs' Alliance, tho Colored
Alliance', the Knights of Labor, tho
National Grange nnd the Kuriners' Mutual
llcnellt Association met lu this city to
day. As .luted in tho call sent out Iho
luiellng Is held for the purpose of form
ing n confederation of these organizations
which have kindred alms and plans and
thus give milted nctlou and additional
power.
At the recent eonventlnn of tho rarm
crs' Alliance lu Ocala, i'ln., it was found
t J i tit many organizations wore represented
outside ol thu rarmcrs' Alliance, and tho
need of n co-operative (omblnatlon was
keenly feilt, leading eventually to the con
vention width has been called together in
this city.
It was suggested nt Iho Ocnla convention
that a consolidation bo elTectcil, but thu
plan was rcgatdcit as being premature,
and ninny pionilncnt members expressed
themselves ns being opposed to a coalition
by whkh individual organization might
be lust.
In short, the Idea Is to git tho laboring
and Industrial interests neater, and com
blno for the purpose ot acting in unison
on national questions.
All of the delegates who aro expected lo
be present havo not arrived, and the meet
ing to-day was merely preliminary and
for the purpose of oiguulalloii.
lich body Is to bo represented by Ilvo
men, who will vote nicotillug to thu
numerical strength of tho bodies repre
sented. As tho rarmcrs' Alliance is stronger lu
-paint of membership, they will havo tho
majority in tho nutting.
This idea of a co-oicratlve union is con
sidered as very slgulllcant, and the
eventual outcome will probably bo a com
plete organization nnd consequently a
third pari). Tho leaders of tho move
ment, however, are feeling their way very
cautiously, nnd their future plans have
not neen setttesi, most ot iiiem preterring
to wait until Iho sentiment has been thor
oughly 111011.
'J hoy nro working quietly, and are will
