The Senator's speech was read from a care fully prepared manuscript and caused consternation a mong his republican col leagues. Senator Foraker an swered the speech, declaring that Mr. Hnar hhd no light to demand from the Presi dent proof that he had told the truth in his message, and added that the Senator's speech should at least have been made in executive ses sion.-. Mr, .(iormau support ed Sen. Gorman supported Senator Hoar and declared that the President was a sen ond Napoleon. 4,A second Na poleon indeed !

Senator Railey congratula ted Senator Hoar for being on the democratic side of the question. Without anv opposition, tne ?enare in executive ses sion ratified the Chinese com mercial treaty. Mr. Nelson, ot Minnesota, criticised the agreement for not giving the United States sufficient open ports, and placed the blame for this on Russia. He warn ed the Senate that there was a possibility of trouble with Russia oyer the stand that the government has taken in Manchuria.

Johnson, of Philadelphia, and former At torney General Griggs and others composed t he counsel reining by the companies. During the hearing many Sen atois, members of Congress and prominent business men crowdHi the court room. Mr Johnson argued that the Securities Company did not acquire the stock of th two trans-con-inental rail roads t retain trade, but to increase it; that the Sherman anti trust act did not forbid the acquisition of stock in two different companies and that if it did, it would be un constitutional; and lastly that the mere possession of power to prevent competi tion was not the same as pre venting it. Attorney General Knox replied for the Govern inent that thcSeeurltieu Corn panies was a combination in restraint of interestate com merce and therefore a viola,' tion of the Sherman act: that it was a monopoly and that theeonrt had the right to pre vent it. He added that it bor dered on the ridiculous to claim that two railroads which were under the same management, would ever corn pete in any true sense of the word.
