Mr Eugeno ItlncUford sent over his Ort In

Among llslmrmen who hao whipped tho

Accordingly just before the Moselle sailed 125
of tlm choicest trout In his tanks were removed

showed no signs of exhaustion yet was not In

felt perfectly well but didnt object to resting
I took a walk this morning up to Central

should think It was about ten miles That was
to keep mo from getting I too stiff
OLenry said I t t II llt Htr man who wins
Mm belt next next time will have to go COO miles
Dont you think so Frank
I I believe eould bn done without any jrteator
difficulty than 565 Is now Hart replied I Mm
garden was only kept In n lit condition for n big
walk Thero ought to be no smoking allowed
lhl track ought to ha not quite so hard as In
this walk and there ought to bo good ventilation

covered twentyfive miles more In the same

1m I you hll hlpn Ju8hel to I
Perhaps I could
The general belief however
Illor among experts howevlr
Is I that Hart went nearly ns far as possible Ho
stopped hall an hour before this time was up
but Mint watt Mm only relaxation 1 ho had
gone two miles further ho would have broken
his alleged bnrgaln with the bookmakers by

less Minn 505 miles They bet heavily on Satur
dny ntternoou Mint he would mako 5G5 and
would not make 507 gUIng nt tlm last odds of
four to one Aside from that half hour he did
not waste I minute and he was pushed by
siFt Dobler or Pcgram to within a few hours of the
Dobler was found on his bed In the Metro
polltnn Hotel but was dressnd In his business
suit He complained that his knee wan stilt
very tiff and lame I resulted he said from

discord Instead of harmony reigns In Mm Ben

the next two weeks the Democratic members of
tho Committee on Privileges and Elections will
resign anti Mm full particulars of ono of those
family jars for which the Democrats are be
coming somewhat famous will bo made public
On Mm other hand It Is barely possible that
union nail good feeling may bo born of tho
present strlfo And the majority may move In
accord together Tho situation Is ns follows
The Committee on Privileges nnd Elections
began the Investigation of the charges ngalnst
Wm Pitt Kellogg of having obtained his elec
tion by bribery fraud te at tho extra session
Inst summer The Investigation wns continued
when Congress reassembled In December
Thousands of dollars have been expended In
subpoenaing witnesses payment ot mileage
iVe Tho majority of the committee began tho
Investigation confident that their report would
be sustained by tlm majority in I tho Semite

by nny Democratic Siimtor that Mm report
would not ho sustained and without any fenrs
of Its rejection Mm report was submitted to tho
Senate Jlr Hill who prepared the report
read It to Mm Senate When tlm eauu reached
this stag doubts were expressed by certain
Democratic Btmntors of the advisability of con
slderlng i tlm I report at thin present time I I Had
thn majority of tlm committee been given to
understand prior to making I tho u report thnt thin
Democrats were nvnrsnto ousting Kellogg Im
mediately tlm report could havo been
suppressed for a week n month or un
til the next session as might hnvo been
deemed meet politic A cnucus was culled to
discuss Mm question of consideration Somimh
difference ol opinion wns found to exist that
the cnuciiBlng wits continued until yesterday
nnd then only partial decision was reached
Enough han been dnveloped however to indi
cate that Kellogg Is not likely to be disturbed
Senators Isnynril Tliurman Qnrlnnd Gordon
Hampton Butler nnd I Lainar havn taken thin
position that Kelloggs cusn Is res adjudjcnta
nnd that the Senate has no power to unseat him
Senator Iendleton although not fully I commit
ted In Kolloggs favor Is believed to eolneldo
with the views of his colleague Mr Randolph
Is I nleo thought to be in the same boat with Mr
Pendleton Ties votes of these gentlemen with
the Itepiitilloans who will support Kellogg aru
sulTlcient to defeat the report of ties majority of
the Committee on Privileges and Elections
Yesterday a resolution to drop tlm Kellogg

Saturday He said that entirely npnrt from tim

they t possessed was theqiastion of fnir I dealing I
with one of ttm Senate committees HH claimed
that tlm gentlenmn who now announce tlmir
determination to oppose thn report should have
Informed the committee of their Intention he
fore the committee had mail Its report Tlm
action ot these Senators Im said would bring
tlm t Democratic party Into I ridicule Kellogg
would preiut n largo bill for tlm expense of
his contest which the Government would lie
compelled to pay lie stiist thattlm nctlon of

parently had not taught them wisdom In con
clusion Im said that he would never vote to
consider the Kellogg case until ho knew nio
Intely that there would ta n sufficient majority
to finally agree to tlm report
Tlm members of tlm majority ot the Com

Incensed at the action of certain Democratic
Senators and they threaten to resign It their
report Is not sustained Those who believe
Mint Kellogg should bn ousted nave slight hopes
of success If a bare majority could he obtained
