BAILEY HISSED IN' FEDERAL SENATE (Continued From Page One.) tMr. Crawford said: "It makes no difference where the money camie from, if it was used for corrupt purposes and all election re sulted from its use." A burst of applanLnse resounded from the galleries. The chair admonished the visitors that demonstrations of the a Sind are 'not permitted by the senate, 1 "Oh!" exclaimed Mr. Bailey, who ll eellted the manifestation as against his position, "it is a fair measure of 1 the intelligence of the audience." r Then the hiss was heard. w layitng there was not a scintilla of a evidence connebting Mr. Lorimer with the charge of bribery, Mr. Bailey t Thked Mr. severidge if he helloAitv a Browne, Broderick and Wllson had I srppIlied the mnney, and the Indiana I senator replied in Ithe negative, ex- r rlessiln the opinion it had ,been fur nished to them. e The Te'xas r nator then said if there t had actually licn money in the pos session of llotetinw, Iieckemeyer, Link t no White, its source easily ould have benen traced. No effort 1had been tmade, he said, to shot that five cents 1had been drawn from Lorl ner's hank, and he argued that if money had been tsed for yMr. Lorimer thie hunk books would have shown thll fact. "That position is against every rule ot common sens'." decltred Mr. Craw ford, interrupting the Texan. "The burdenm of pIroof is not on those mak lIng the chrge; the presumnption is that those who profited by the trans action furnished the money." Mr. halley was just as comphl nmellntary in his response. "Whien the senator suggests a ri orlt to the rules of common sense he should not violate such rules himself," Ite said, The trouble, he urtged, was that it was annumed that money bad been used a tile witnesses had ' charged, rwhlch he did not believe to have been tile case. "Then," said Mr. ,leveridge, "it was all a dream." "'No, not a dream: it was all alie," responded Mr. Bailey. "Does not the senator. believe that IUostlaw deposited the $2,6O0 as ap p ars in the evidence?" Mr. Bailley w.ts asked by. Mr. lleverdige, and he pl omptly replied that he did not. "What nlotlive could have prompted the testimony?" the Indianan do manded. "The same motive thht caused otters to want to destroy Mr. Lonrl m r'th character," was Balley's explan at lon. At this point Mr. Beverdige intro. d4 ced an affidavit from Jarvis New ton, chief clerk of the Chicago State Sank, togethertl with a photographic rMopy of the famous deposilt slip. Mr. llailey propotly 5seOit the oppPytun. ity to obtain consent to the publica tion of the slip in the Congressional Record; for the purposes of sustainng, cs lie solaid, his charge of forgery. Mr. ('umtmins ud'anced tile theory thlft the money, said to have been us 1 in the election of Mr. Lorlimer, bad had origin similar'to that of the famnos "jackpot."

Barrlll was coming to the ex pressed conclusion that to 'might as r' well see what there was In It.' "On the way to the Pacific coast, .'hero Barrlll went to see the mys - trlhius Ashton, he called 'on Mr. Ble ' then, the editor of the Seattle Times. I met Mr. Blethen later in St. Paul and I was told by him 'what had hap pened. Barrill told him he might make an affidavit against me. Mr. llethoen told me he would have been willing to pay $5.000 to $10,000 for Bar rtill's statement against me, which he naturally consldered a good newspaper heat. Heo told If'arrll he would buy the statement at his own price. This, it seems, BHarrill did not take as a satisfactory proposition, and left the office. He did not return.

To Sthis I did not reply. I have this let. ter in my possession. "Then Miller, the Seattle photog rapher to whom rumor gave credit for Sengineering the Ilarrlll deal, and who, because he had not gotten a share of Barrlll's proceeds, was said to hbe sore, sent a man east. He gave his name as Htess. Ile called on my attorney In New York and offered an affidi vilt from Miller to the effect that Bar t rill 'had never kept a diary, that the e alleged pages used were fakes, and 0 that Barrill was a liar. Ilutit was s for money-always money. "I did not, na I sail, take the dhargan t seriously. Others did. There was a h call for 'proofs' of the lit. McKinlte' Sclimh.
