Mr. Hasan and a aentloman who has since beon pointed out to him as Bonator Fas sett Mr. Hasar remained with them for twenty minutes or longer, until all the others had left the office. Witness knew nothing of the attemDt of the People's Company to get a oharter, excopt what ho saw in the papors and from the remarks of Bondorson. Ho never knew that Banderson was onoo tried for at tempting to bribe a juror, or that he had been imprisoned. Col Sanderson was recalled and testlilod Ithat he hod been In jail for two days, not for fraud, but beoause he eould not take tho poor debtor's oatb. whloh he attempted to do In a utt against him to reoovor upon a bond of 15,000 on whloh he had slgnod as surety. Ho denied that he had beon discharged from tho Adjutant-Goneral's office Ho left of his own aoeord. Ho was Indicted for and aoquttted of attempting to bribe a juror, Lawyer 11. D. Hido of the West End Company being the prose cutor. When Senator I'asBott proposed to de liver the votos ot ton Sonators for $100,000 ho (Banderson) rorerred blm lo Dr. Moore. Wit ness had no money to buy Sonators and no Intention to buy nny of them. It first ooourrod to him to uso the letter from Senator Fassott when Hugar demanded its return to him. and said ho would deny every thing in regard to It if It wero not delivered. That was after the rejection of the People's Elevated Railroad petition. YVitn.es had heard ot corruption at the Btate House as long ago as last year, but waitod until ho had substan tial evidence.

Ho met Mr. Hagar I by appointment, and wont to Dr. Mooro s of I floe. Dr. Mooro was out. and thoy waited for R A his return. On his arrival Messrs. Hagar and iV Banderson wont out. Dr.Moore haid that his roud 'I Ji was baoked by moneyed men: that it a charter lJl was granted the road would surely be operated. 'At h'o list ot Senators' names was presented and B.I no reference was mode to tho purchase of ben Hi atorlal votes. This was on Friday. The fol T' lowing week witness went to Dr., Moore's offloe. Dr. Moore then said ha was 'I ' anxious to get a charter for a road: I that they proposed to build the road, and I wero ready to pay tioo.ooo or Illu.uOO I to get a certain number of Senatorial votes. I lie asked witness It he could furnish fourteen I Republican Benators who would bo sura to I favor elevated roads. Y itness said ha guessed I he was the wrong man. that those tactics f ui.tHi.in Nm Hamcshtis. but not In the r Massachusetts Legislature. Witness then 1 withdrew, and afterward wrote the letter stat- I fug that ha had decided to go with the West 1 End people. Mr. Hagar had never spoken to . him about olavated roads until the Ume he in- El vlted him to Dr. Moore's ofllee. He voted for U the West End bill beoauBe he believed that 19 company alono would build and operate tho ff, elevatea road. He had ulso been influenced by IX ex-Qov. Long's argument. J benator James Douovuu denied saying In tho yll Interview with tsandersou in the benate lobby lll that he had gone over to tho Wost J-nd Com- 7.1 nany because there wus money on that side. ' Ho had never beon Improperly, ppproacbed In ( tha interest of the Wost tnd. lie had never i promised to vote for the Teoplo s bill. He had I never montloaod any benators nume in that I 'senator Campboll testified that he had never been " opproacnod" by an v one on the elevated I road Question. His conversation with Mr. i Sanderson, as testified to, bv tho latter, was most decidedly of a general churnoter. and was I very brief.

Tho committee of the Loglslaturo. to which tho Lottory bill was referred, docided, by a vote of 0 to 3, to report It favorably. Two propositions wore made by Mr. Dreyfus, a momber of tho commlttoo who Is against tho lottery: first, that the company plodge ltsolf to abolish tho dally drawing upon which policy tickets aro based, and which, ho eatd, Impovorlshod tho poorer classes of the people, and that It couDno itsolf to the monthly drawings, a largo majority of tha tlokets for which aro sold outelJo of LoutBlann, und which did little harm hore: and, secondly, that tho lottery give 2, 000,000 a year Instead ot $1,000. 000: 1700,000 to go to tho publlo schools, $700, 000 to levees. $300,000 to charities, $150,000 to tho dratnago of Now Orleans. $10,000 to tho Contodorato Soldiers' Home. $50,000 to pensions to Confederate roterans. nnd $90 000 to the In sane nsvlum. Tho first proposition was re jected by a vote of 0 to 3. all the lottery men opposlnglt: tho second by a vote of 7 to 3, Mr. Wills ot Richland, an anti-lottery man. voting against it on the ground that he was opposed to a lottery whother one, two, or ton mil ons wero paid for tho privilege. Thero will. In comequenoo, bo two reports to the JLegls- "lr.'lJorland. representative from the Tenth ward of New Orleans, was waited on by a committee ropresontlng l.bOO white voters of tho ward, two-thirds of tho total, und asked to voto for tho lottory. Ho declined to do so. whoreupon the Chairman of tho committee asked him to rosier), as he no longer repre sentor! the people. Mr. Borland refused, de claring that the Domooratlo dootrlno was that the people had no right to Instruct a Repre sentative after his eloctlon. The Rev, it, W. Warren, representing nien vlllo Parish, who Is the only clergyman in the Legislature, received a petition Blgned by l.OiK) of the l.iiOO white Demoerntio voters of his parish, asking him to voto for tho lottery. Ho announced that he would do so, although per sonally opposed to tho lottory. The Democratlo Convention of West Fell clnln has decided to noralnnte two candidates for Senator in that alstrlot to succeed bonator Barrow, deceased, one pro-lottery and tho other anti-lottery, and thus learn tho views of tho people on this question. This prociosltlnn thnt tho samo Convention shall nominate two men for the same ottloo opposed to each other on tho loading Issues boforo tho Legislature. Is looked upon as somewhat extraordinary. The Convention declaros. however, thnt It Is the only wny to avoid a split In the party. Tbo Kennto Bribery Committee has roported that It can do nothing, as Mb members cannot agree how tho Investlgaton should bo made. A joint Domooratlo cauous has beon called to consider the lottery question. A JtEir IWCOHD FOB TUB COH73IBIA. The City of Paris Now Is the Only Ship head ot her rjpeed. The Hamburg-American steamship Columbia added lustre to her fame yesterday by creating a new record from Southampton. Bho made tha voyage from tho Needles to Bandy Hook Lightship in six days, slxtoen hours, and two minutes, covering 3.050 knots, at nn avorage speed of nineteen knots an hour. This eclipses hor best previous performance by two hours and eighteen minutes, and Is equal to a voyage ovor a short ooursa from Queenstown of bIx days, ono hour, and thirty minutes. Thore Is now only ono steamship afloat with a locord superior to tho Columbia's, and that is the Inman llnsr. tho City of Tarls. Tho hopeful Hamburg-Americans do not expect tho Columbia to equal this, but they think tho new urrnonnIa (constructed by tho sumo company that built the Columbia) will do It. with some timo to spare. The City of Paris has just 7,500 more horso power than the Columbia, the maximum oapucity ot whoso onglnos is 12,5("0. Capt. Vogelgesang followed a theory of his own. not in accordance with that of the llydrograpblo Ofllco. on his voyage here. Ha says that on his last fJutward trip he took an axtremo southerly courso nnd fell in with ice. shrouded in n deal of fog. Taking that coursfl baok to Now iork. be ar gued, meant danger nnd 'delay, and the nilddlo courso. several hundred miles to the north was thick with giant bergs and Oiled with fog. Ho decided to take an extreme northerly route, nearly 100 miles further than that of tho Nor mannlaon ber maiden trip. He found plenty once on tno i-anna. uui uo uiu u "",' " confidently expected to find, a perfectly clear atmosphere. Commodore Elbridgo T. Oerry of the New York Yacht Club, who Is an enthusiastic ama teur Photographer, was a passenger on tho Columbia, and took pictures ot the biggest and most Bpectaoular bergs, Thoy began to oome Into view at 11 o'clock on Wednesday morn ing, their whlto. fantastio peak, glistening In the bright sunshine. Before dusk tho ship had sailed through a flotilla ot about thirty borgs, tho b!gget of which was about 200 feet high and 1.000 feet long. Tho dally runs of the Columbia were 418. 460. 459, 170, 1G9. 103. and 'iBi She burned 270 tons ot cool a day, or about 80 less than the City of Paris usually consumed on a fast voy aco. The revolutions of her propellers wero 78 b minute. For several hours on Thursday morning she mudo noarly 20 knots nn hour. Had Bbe not run into a dense fog when within half a day ot this port she might have roduced tho time of her voyage bi sov eral hours. The report of the steamship Snalo. which got In last evening, shows that the Columbia's navigator was right In thinking the southerly route not much safor than the northorly one. The Saale passed a tall iceberg two miles long in latitude 45 US and four more between lati tude 42' 37' nnd latitude 41 66'.

ELMini, Juno 13. Fraulj Warron. a travel ling man for an Owogo wagon company, was shot and klllod by his 15-yoar-old son Horbort nt his homo In this city at 2 o'clock this morn ing. Warron returnod homo unexpectedly nt about 10 o'clock last night, nnd was admitted by his son. The two oonvorsod pleasantly to gether for a short time, attor which thoy re tired. When Warren got into his room it is said that ho revived an old quarrel with his wife about some trivial mattor. The quarrel was continued nnd grow moro and mors animated, until at 2 o'clock, young Horbort says, he heard his fatherthreat onlng his mothor with vlolonco. Ho arose, and, taking a cheap rovolvor which ho had In bis room, went to tho room of his parents. On entering tha room ho says ho saw his father about to striko his mother, nnd he quickly raised his revolver and fired. Tho bullet struck Warren In tho right broast. He whooled about, advanced a step toward tho door, and fell dead. Mrs. Warron went Into hysterics, and hor screams aroused tho family noxt door, who, finding Warron dead, summoned the pollco nnd Cotoner. Tho boy was taken Into custody, but maintained a remarkably stolid and Indif ferent attitude. Ho would say but little about the shooting, and has not yet expressed regret for his deod. Tho mother continued her orloa. intimating In Incoherent utterances that tha cause of their quarrel might bo found In her husband's hip pocket. Thero the Coroner found many letters from young ladles In various places in New England, whero Warren travelled most. One wa signed Evu, nnd was from Norwalk. Conn. This was especially pro fuse in its endearing language, and indtcnted that the couplo had begun preparations for a marriage. Anothor was from Bath, N. H., and was signed Myra A. Thompson. A photograph of the Norwalk woman was also found In his possession, nnd was sent to the police at Nor walk to assist them in establishing tho ldontlty Tha trouble between Warren nnd his wife was undoubtedly the result of jealousy. In nn interview with Mrs. Warren she hold hor hus band camo home early In tho oveningnndwoUo up their son and conversed pleasantly with him about tho rncos. Ho then onmo Into tho bed room whero sho was sloonlng. and. after tiro paring for bod. renowod an old quart ol with her about a simple muttor.

Warren und his wlfo had boon mariled sev enteen jears, and lor several years their rela tions had boon strnlned. ioung Win n-n says to-day that his mother had talked of suing for a divoreo, and that his father's unfaithfulness toher bad caused moot of the trouble. Mis. Wurren is said to bo a very respeetablo Ihuv. and realdonts In tho vicinity oxpiess little sympathy for tho man. while tho bviuiuthy for tho murderer is unbounded. L. C. lluson. a lawyer living neur by. said ho regarded Warron as a brute, and thought his death the result of his own conduct, Wurren was In the habit of going out on his trip, re maining nway from home three and four months, and on returning would have a quan tity of letters, written to him by dillorent women. In his poaket-. These lettors he would leave around for his wife to see. merely to pro voke a quarrel, and. if she would remonstrate with him he would subject her to nil sorts of cruelty. Tho great strain tho father's actions e ad wrought upon the bov had partially un aloncod him. In fact, fortho past oar tho boy bad been suffering from nervous prostra tion, and was in a Tory fooble condition, men tally and physloolly. Warren left homo yesterday morning for Owego. telling his wife he would not be pack vintllSaturday.

Tho dobate on the Li censing bill wns continued In the Houso ot Commons this ovenlng. There wns a long dls ousslon on Mr. Acland's proposal to apply tho compensation fund to oduoatlon. Mr. Glad stone said it hod beon asserted confidently nnd loudly that the bill did not sanction the prin ciple of compensation. It was mainly on that ground that the Government had commended It to tho Houso. while some supporters had urged as the main roason for their approval that tho bill did establish tho princlolo of com pensation. (Hear, hoar. He ngroed with tho lut ter. The opponents of tho moasure considered It a distinctly retrogrado step In social roform. They looked upon tha bill as poison for tho poople. and demanded that the funds bo ap plied toward oduoatlon. Tho Mlnistors had expressed amazemont on hearing the measuro oalled tho Publicans' Endowment bill. Ho hud not heard any namo that so occuratoly do notod tho purpose of tho bllL It wns certain that publlo-house values had already rlson through tho prospocts raised by tho measuro. and ho was oqually sure thnt tho moment It bocamo o law every publlo houso In tho coun try would bo regnrdod as worth moro than tho markot price, and would not bo acquired ox copt at a higher prlco. "Hoar, hoar." Tho vast Investment by great proprietary firms in publlo houses was a monstrous evil and entirely the growth of recent times. These firms had Invostod In publlo houses under somo expectation of a ronawnl of lioonse. The vuluo of this expectation. It had beon declared, rested on no legal basis, as tho llconse might, undor tho prosont law, be annulled without compen sation. Tha bill would establish a prlnolplo that licenses might be bought up by monoy from the publlo taxes, at prlcos virtually flxod by liennse holders. " Hear. hear.

Mr. Glndstono-These nro Idle words. Tho Government amendment now Inserted, that tho legnl powers ot magistrates romolii Intact, Is merely dolus ve In tho face of tho entire bill. You might plnnter tho bill with amendments liko that, but it would not alter the aim nor give the meas ure a slnclo shred of vnluo In tlio eies of tho millions who opppso It. The amendmont really moans tho endowment of a glgnntlo Interest nt tho expenso ot tho publlo purse. It would entlroly parulyzo all hope i of effecting a reduction In tho number of publlo housos without ruinous oost to tho country. Tho Government would bo wiso to withdraw a measuro rogardlng whloh every ono Is puzzled to know why it was introduced. Choors I Mr. jo-chon.

Mr. Oladstone-I never epoko on the subjoct except in connection with local option nnd tho extinction of public houses. Mr. Ooschen, replying to Mr. Gladstone s challonge. supported from Hansard his nssor tion that Mr. Gladstone had doscrlbed licenses as vested Interest. .. After a similar altercation with Sir William Yornon Ilnreouru Mr, Goschen nuotcd John Bright as to tho Injustice of cancelling licenses without giving compensation therefor. He de clared that the fanatioal opposition to tho bill was due to jonlousy. Tho Conservatives woro the first to mske a serious attempt to graprlo with this difficult subject. Ho admlt tod that the magistracy were reluctant to shut publlo houses. 1 hat was because conspicuous men of both parties declared It toben necessity tn compensate tho proprietors. Mr. Gladstone thought tbo Government wns foolish to meddlo with the tjuestion. Certainly he. al though ho had had plenty of chances to do otherwise, had carefully avoided It. Others having spokon. Mr. bmlth moved to .nnWiof.m tint tha Chairman declined, and the debate was continued. ,. .. Sir George Trevolyan characterized the bill as the worst proposal of the kind ever submit ted to Purlloment. He was willing that nfnlr compensation be given for a disturbance In volving thousands Instead of millions. Ihe bill was a severe blow to tho causa of tempor nnoe, and met with tho opposition of tho muss of tho people, who objoeted to monopolists get lng tho capital value of their monopolies in ad dition to enormous gains. hlr William Vernon llarcourt made an nmtiB Ing speooh, In whloh he Bald that tho Govern ment were nwaro that the Pill was unpopular, nndsowoio trying to hurry It through to rid themselves of It. .
