Introduction of the disbarment data
went to confirm indications that the
door for a wider investigation than at j
first planned bad been opened with re- j
gard to the charge of attempted ox-j

against Senator BtHwelL While Ken? ;

anilnatlon. Edgar M. Wilson, count>..l
fsjr the BCCUged Senator, asked him
about an alleged attempt by Kendall I
to bribe a Virginia legislator more than
thirty r-cars. ago. The rulea of. pro

the Senate restricted the testimony to

way for the? Introduction of testimony ;

Corroborates Kendall.
The first corrobor?t i on of KendaJl.

when Georsro A. Field, vie?--prc?-ident of
the New York I'ank Note Company,
was called to the stand. Field's testi?
mony, s?, far as It was taken, corrobo?
rated nil that Kendall swore to about
his visits to the ?'apltol. bis talks with
Senat.r Stihvell. and later the lnt?*r

Btllwell's lawyer tried to make these
admissions and occasional slaps at Stll

"If you're not trying to revenge your

"I'm here as a noble a?t," shouted ,

It it hand's together he won't have
gained much, either, beyond Home per?
sonal satisfaction at having been the
instrument through which the inquiry
war started.
Kendall \oie*-d some highly uncom
Himeniary ?.pinions of Ser.aior Stilwell
during th?-* day's session.
"HCs no bitter than a bribe taker
?nd a thief," he said.
"A man who's as well known to you

Wt the ?i* f*ii. *r. NSilnon was B?-|
fofonatc in his manner with Kendall.
He left constantly the impression ot
baiting the wftaeas, sneering ?t hhn,
****N****m to read lato tb? i""'"'1 *>Y *m~
plication aoeuaatloas aRainst him and
his ?cmpany and his methods ol doing
buslneea, Kendall resented these bit?
tsrly, and retort.,] -a itii ? hoi tongu?
which left lawyer ;m(j witnosa in
squabbles half the tier.
Wilson constantly sought ?.eke
it appear that a Failure of Kendall to
answer his question! without explain?
ing his position, and g refusal t.. an?
swer some <>f them unleai they were
restated, was ?lue to * mental railing.
Kendall was ?Mo t., answer question*?
by the Attorney General and his own
lawyer, Edward P, Lyon, without the
Slightest trouble.
Wilson ais,, sought to make much of
Kendall's light with th?- Stock Ex
ehaage, dragging it into the testimony,
although Attorney ?Se?era] Carmody
and Beaator Murtaugh warned him
that |( was ? collateral Issue, ii?

Kendall declared the methods em?

queried Wilson.
"i do, ves." was Kendall's reply.
"Well, it's for the committee t.? de?

torted Wilson.
Still Some Business.
Kendall'a lawyer w..s able lo put on
the **eoord testimony that the New

two years had made $125,000,000 <?f
bonds for New York City, which leemi -1
