man, who says he kosps a sin
tionory store In Ithnca, N. Y" called on Chief
of Polico Slurphy of Jersey City yestorday af
ternoon and told a story about green iroods
swindlers, which resulted later in tho rear
rest of iranagcr Bortholf of the Western Union
and the making of n new charge against him
for aiding green goods men. Percival's f-tory
was that on Nov. at) ha had received n circular
offering to sell to him S'-'.OOO for $.'MX. Ho
wns advised In case ho thought favorably of the
proposition to telegraph to K.. I". (Jailand, .'II

and telegraphed according to directions. A
day or two afterward lie leceived n loiter of
Instructions from Garland directing him to
come to tho Urand Union Hotel. In this city,
nnd remain there until called for. If not
called for In n day or two ho was to telegraph
to Garland. "No communication." Perclval
was not called for. as Garland was probably
busy about that time keeping out of tho way
of the polico who ware hunting for evidence
against theSWestorn Union Telegraph Com
pany and its Jersey City manager, John .1'..
Percivnl telegraphed by theWcstorn Lnion
to Garland: "No communication," but
thoughtlessly signed his own name Instead of
tho name he had been Instruc'ed toslgn. Ho
received no nnswer. Ho decided then to go to
Jersey City nnd investigate for himself. He
wont to Garland's address, tho Pennsylvania
House.:! Jlontgomery street, and was Informed
that Garland had not been there since Inst No
vember. The proprietor ndvlsed Percivnl to
see Chief Murphy and he did so. When ho had
told his story tlio Chief font him to the West
ern Union ofllce to ask If his telegram to Gnr
lund had been delivered, and If not why ho
had not been notllled at the Grand Union Ho
tel. Manager liertholf. he said, refused to
glvo him any Information. Chief Murphy
then caused another complaint to be made
against liertholf and ho was arrestod about H
P. 31. He sent for his counsel, Allan L.IMc

Soiintois Cnlleil to Account for Discussing
the Treaty In Open .Session A Dispute
Between thn Mnlne Senators Thnt He
cnme Pnrsiiiinl-Sciiiilor Orny Says Plain
ly Tlint Knlntlons Willi n Certain Power
I'olbld l'litilto Discussion of tile Treaty.
Wasminutov, Jan. 12. At to-day's oxocutlvo
session of the Senate, tho first in which tho
treaty of pence with Spain has boon oonsldorod,
much bad reeling was manifested between
tho advocates nnd opponents of expan
sion, nml thi) debate was enlivened by
n dispute betwpen tho Henntors from Jlaine,
which, before Us close, becamo somowhnl
personal. Tho Immodlnto question undor con
sideration wns tho resolution of Jlr. Berry of
Arkansas, providing that thn treaty should bo
dobatcd in open session. For nearly four
hours tho doors wero closed, nnd during that
time tho treaty Itself wns not dismissed.
There has been for tho pnst fow days much
criticism of Sonntors Hoar. Jlaon, Fornkor
and others for openly discussing points In
volved in "Gin treuty vvhllo addressing them
selves ostensibly to the resolution of Jlr.
Vest of Missouri, committing the Sotiato
to tho doctrine that the United States
does not possess tho power of ncqnlrlng
tenltoo except under certain conditions.
A large number of Senators, Including some
who tiro opposed to tho treaty, contend that
tho Senators havo violated the rules of tho
Senate, as well as Its time-honored tradi
tions. In tholr remarks upon the Vest res
olution, as well as In the discussion of tho
-Nicaragua Canal bill, nnd tho leaders have
been insisting from the beginning that It
Is thu duty of the Senate to close tho doors
on all such speechmaklng, As ono of these)
lenders expressed it to-night, it is thought to
bo f.omewhat fatclcal for tho Senate to debate
tho treaty foi two or threo hours in open es
sion, dnv afterday, with tlio Nicai aguan bill and
the Vest resolution us texts, and then to close
the doors for tho twoor three hours moro while
tho snmo sort of speeches are made. Senators
Hoar and JInsoti nre held to havo boon the
chief offenders, and thooffenQC of the Jlassa
ehusetts Senator is thought to lie the more
serious, because lie has always been a stickler
for the rules nnd eouitosv of the body.
Little surprise was caused, therefore, to-day,
when Senator l're, one of the Peace Commis
sioners, and u member of thn Foreign Rela
tions Committee, mnde a somewhat passionate
attack upon the offending Senator? and took
occasion to particularly rebuke Senators Hoar
und Jlason for their recent speeches. He said
they had trod dangerously near to the line
which marked thoo things which weroti direct
violation of therules.nndnssertcdth.it mnnv
of tho things snid by these Senators ought
never to have boon uttered in public. If a
Senator so conservative ns Jlr. Hoar would do
tbe-u things, the Mcnnto mlgnt vrull Minnie
from tho possibilities that might result from a
general discussion of tho wliolo subject before
eiowded galleries.
Neither Senator Hoar nor Senator Jlason
replied, but their defonder wns found iu the
person of Jlr. Hale. Jlr. Tiyo's colleague. Jlr.
Halt declared that he was in favor of
maintaining thu traditions of tho Sen
ato and considering the treaty In secret,
but nt the same tlmo there was much
connected with the subject that could bo
lirnpcily said before tho country Ho did not
believe cither of the Senators referred to hud
violated tho rules or their own consciences
in making (ho speeches they had made, and
he believed that each of the Senators was as
capable of deciding what waspioper for them
to say in nubile as was the Senator from
Jlaine Speaking foi himself, Jlr Halo notllled
the Senate that under no eiiciinihtiinuor. would
lie voto for the tientj He believed It was
wiong in principle and full of disaster to
thiscountry. Ho wanted tlm country to know
jnst what bad been roposod by the Adminis
tration, and ho expressed the opinion thai be
fore tho treatv was latluVd the country would
know much more than It does now
Jlr Fryo then delivered a most severe rebuke
to his colleague, which became personal to tho
Klntof embarrassment
Jlr. Te'ler, one of the urdent expansionists of
tlio Senato, favored an or"n session. He saw
no reason to fear such u discussion, and, so
Tnr as the temark of Jlr Halo was con
cerned, Mr Toller stated It tn be his
bollof that open discussion would only
makn tlio people more Insistent In their de
mands thnt the Administration polie. which
was in tills easo tho American policy, should
be oarried out.
Jlr. Orny. a inembor of the Committee on
Foreign Relations mid ono of the Peace
Commissioners, mado a short speech iu
which ho rebuked those Senators who
were clamoring for open sos-dons. The
Senator from Delaware did not go Into de
tall, but ho strongly Intimated that there
wore good nnd sufllclen' reasons why It would
be Imprudent to open iliedoors on this discus
sion. Ho mado the positive .statement that
the discussion, as it progressed, would
show that iMir relatione, with n eer
tain other imvver glowing out of the
Peace ticatv, and pnitlonluily with the
situation in the Philippine, wero .uch that It
would be exceedingly hazardous to consider It
iu open session. .Mr Giay.of couise. refoireu

either foi mat or tacit, but onough Senators de
clared thuir intention to show that thu debate
would proceed ns It lias been moving for
seveial dnys, and that the Vest and other reso
lutions will continue to lie utilized ns texts for
speeches, both for and ngnlusttho policy of ex
paiiidon, tegnrdless of the criticism aimed nt

In discussing the motion of Jtr Bony. .Mr.

people ought to bo will lied "f the error
into which they worn rushing with headlong

siiino phases of the ease In open session. If

lies In oveiy linirof his head and overyporeot '
his body: ho lies wilfully, deliberate1', inten
tionally nnd malicious!)." At another tlmo hn
said: "If his statement is falso, as I assert it
tobe.thon ho should be drummed out of tlm
service nnd incarcerated In prison with other
YVIiontliecharacterofGen. Lagan, testimony
became known nt the Wnr Department Rerout
ed a greator'-eiisation (hero than it had before
the Invostlgntlngcomnilsslon. Ofllcors familiar
with army laws said Hint Gen. Eagan could not
escape a court-martial. Ofllcors friendly to
Gen. Eagan in tho controversy with
Gen. Jllles expressed regret that such Ian- j
gttngo had beon used by ono officer l
toward tho commanding Goneral of tho j
army, and expressed tho onlnlon that thero j
could be no oxcuso for It. An offlcor of high i
standing, who Is not known to hold projudlcos j
in favor of either Oon. Jllles or Gen. Eagan. j
said, nfter looking up tho military law covoring
such cases, that tlio promise of President JIc
Kinley nnd Secretary Alger that officers should
not bo hold accountable hereafter for testi
mony given boforo tho War Investigation Com
mission did not exempt Gen. Eagan from pros
ecution. The Immunity promised extended, ho
snid. only to testimony nnd not to personal
attacks on other ofllcors.
A reporter of Tug Sun saw Gen. Jlllesj
this afternoon and acquainted him with tho
charges of Gen. Eagan. Gen. Jlilos appeared
much amused, and nfter humming a few seo
onds, said:
"That billingsgate, will do him no good and
hardly merits a response from me or the con
sideration of any right-minded people. I will
not say whnt action I shall take, but ono thing ,
Is ceitaiu. such language Is conduct unbecom
ing an ufllecr and a gentleman. The slate
incuts of ofllcors nnd soldlors by tho thousands
in illffoient Paris of tho country aimonr t)
conflict with the statements of certain com
missary ofllcors, packors and their omployeo.
I hivo no reason fo discredit the statements
of the brave men who wont to wnr, and I nm
quite willing to bo on their side and shall do
what I bellevo to be for their interests and
welfare and to maintain their integrity ami

Oon. Jliles to-day recolvod sevoral lettera

tlio shape of qunrtors was put on tho vessel

supposed to have been subjected to some,
preparation to preserve It, but It became so
putrid that it had to bo throAii overboard.
Gov. Roosevelt also said that the tinned roast

hnidly eat a llfth of it.
Soon nftor lio had finished giving Ids testi

office. What occurred there litis not been dis
