WHAT DID QUIGG DO
ilouse Committee on Naval Affairs Still Investigating the Lessler Charges. Mr. Quigg Enters a General Denial Philip Doblin on the Stand To-day. Jft' Washington. Jan. 24.The house cotn- - iriittee on naval affairs to-day resumed the investigation of the charges made by Representative Lessler that he had been approached with an offer of money for his vote. Philip Doblin was the first witness called. He was interrogated by Repre sentative Taylor for the committee. He said he had no employment at present, but was employed by the republican com mittee during the campaign of 1902, and attended to the distribution of literature, and that he also was a deputy in the office of the superintendent ol elections. He said he did what he could to aid In the election of Representative Lessler, whom he had known since 1894. Answering Mr. Taylor, he said he had been in politics for twelve years. "I stood ready to serve Mr. Lessler In any way I could," he said when asked as to his relations with Mr. Lessler, whose office he made his headquarters. Mr. Doblin said he had known Mr. Quigg since 1896. "Did you have a talk with Mr. Quigg relative to Holland submarine boats?" "Yes. sir." "When was that?" "Somewhere between the tenth and fif teenth of December." "Where?" "I received a telephone message asking me to come to 100 Broadway." Tie said he went to Mr. Quigg's office. He had only seen Mr. Quigg once since the state convention up to that time. He went to Mr. Quigg's office, he continued, and went out to luncheon with Mr. Quigg. "Mr. Quigg wanted to know how Mr. - Lessler and I were," he said, "and I told him I thought Mr. Lessler and I were !quite intimate." He said they talked over the bill to build submarine torpedo boats. Mr. Quigg, he added, was trying to get Mr. Lessler favorably disposed toward the bill. "He wante to know if I had heard anything about submarine boats. I said 'Yes, I understand that Mr. Lassler made a trip on the boat and was against the proposition.' Of course, I heard Mr. Lessler say he was against the proposi- tion." "What else?" There Was $5,000 In It. "We talked over the Roberts' billthat I understand Is the name of the submarine boat bill. Mr. Quigg was anxious to get Lessler's friendly disposition toward the bill, and he said, after talking variously, there is $5,000 in it.' " "Tell us as near as you can just what he said." "He said he was not personally inter ested In this thing. He said: 'There Is some friend of mine whom I desire to favor if I can. If I can get the aid I want there will be $5,000 In it." "Then he said: 'I think I can^make it $1,000 for you.' He said: 'Telephone me at 3 o'clock and I will let you know about that.* " "For whom did he say there was $5,000 in it?" "The man we were talking about. That 1s, Mr. Lessler." Attorney Delancey Nicoll cross-exam ined Mr. Doblin. He directed inquiries to the witness as to whether he knew he was doing an unlawful act in submitting the proposition to Mr. Lessler, which he testified he did. Mr. Doblin said he had not read the. law on the subject and in answering to whether he thought he was doing a friendly act. he said he only wanted as one friend to help him. Some Spicy Testimony. The testimony then continued as fol lows : "You went to see Mr. Lessler, did you?" "Mr. Lessler wasn't in town." "You telephoned at 3 o'clock?" "Yes. and I was told 'that will be all right.' " "Do you know who was on the other end of the telephone?" "No, sir." "You could not tell by the voice?" "No, sir." "What occurred on the telephone?" "I asked for Mr. Quigg I presume I was connected. The gentleman on the other end said, 'All right.' He said. 'This is Doblin, and that will be all right.' That is all there was to that." "Did you make any special reference to a previous arrangement to call him up at 3 o'clock or know what it was?" "I just said 'This is Doblin.' J said, Is Mr. Quigg in?' Somebody on the other ,end said. 'Yes. Hello this Is Doblin,' land I heard. 'That will be all right.' " "You said nothing but 'This is Dob- lin?' " "That is all." "When did you see Mr. Lessler?" "The following day." "Do you know what day of the week it was?" "Saturday morning." - "What occurred when you saw Mr. Lessler?" "He Was standing at his desk look ing at his mail and I asked him whether the torpedo submarine boat business was going to come up again. He said . it might. I said: 'I was sent for yesterday.' H e said: 'By whom?' 'By Mr. Quigg,' I told him just what I" "What did you tell him. State just what you told him." "I told rim. 'there would be $5,000 in this if you can see your way clear to be friendly to it.' He kind of said: 'Humph, humph!' and laughed. He threw his pa pers down, and there was no more to it. He said: 'There is nothing in that.' He said: 'Quit.' I tried to talk and he said- 'Quit.' " "And you quit?" "I quit, that is all." "Did you communicate this to Mr. Quigg?" "Yes. sir." "What did you say to him?" "I told Him Mr. Lessler-wouldn'tit can't be done. I think that was the lan guage I used'It can't be done.' " "What could not be done?" "The mission I was after, trying to get Mr. Lessler." He Tells What He Had to Do With Lessler. Washington, Jan. 24.Lemuel E. Quigg made the first statement last night with reference to the testimony before Jin Ancient FOG To health and happiness is Scrofulaas ugly as ever since time immemorial.

The New York Congressman Who Ae^ cuses Lemuel Quigg's Man of Attempt* Ing to Bribe Him In Favor of Holland Submarine Torpedo Boat Legislation. the house naval affairs committee by Representative Lessler: "I regret that the committee declined to receive my testimony yesterday, inas much as I think it should have gone out with Mr Lessler's. I have no interest whatsoever and never have had any in terest In the Holland torpedo boat, or in any of the companies organized to pro mote it. Nor am I now, nor was I ever, In any way interested in obtaining pend ing or' other legislation in their behalf. At the solicitation of a friend whose name I will give the committee, who said he was interested, I consented to speak with Mr. Lessler in advocacy of the boat. As the result of efforts to reach Mr. Lessler by telephone I was visited by Philip.Dob lin, whom I knew to be Lessler's personal friend. I made no other request of Dob lin than that he should let me know when Mr. Lessler was in town and in his office, in order that I might see hlrrff*" ' "Subsequently Doblin called at my office again and told me that Lessler was in his office, and I called there accord ingly. Mr. Lessler. at his office, did not open the conversation by saying that, of course there could be no talk about money. He did not say this then or at any other time during the conversation, nor was there any talk about money ex cept in his own declamation against the methods to which he said the company was resorting. It is very true, however, that he did not mention to me any prior conversation between him and Doblin. H e received me politely and in a friendly way, and it was he who introduced the subject of the Holland torpedo boat. Mr. Lessler promptly announced his opposi tion to the pending appropriation, and stated with great detail why in his opin ion the Holland bill should not pass. I did not feel myself sufficiently well in formed about the merits of the case to discuss them with him, and when he had done I told him that I guessed he knew more about the subject than I did, that I had sufficiently performed my errand and that I had no request whatever to make of him. "I did not mention to Lessler the name of the gentleman who had requested me to talk with him or say more on the sub ject than that he was friend whom I should like to oblige. As a matter of fact he was not General Eppa Hunt6n or any "Mr. Hunter," or any person of a similar name. I never said anything of that sort to Lessler. Subsequently to thu conver sation between Lessler and me Doblin called twice at my office urging me to visit Lessler again, but I did not do so." Mr. Quigg specifically denied the statements made concerning Doblin so far as they associated Quigg with offers of money.

Red Lodge, Mont., Jan. 24.What is be lieved to be the most daring and gigantic conspiracy ever hatabed in the northwest has been unearthed in the Bridger bank robbery case through the confession of one of the prisoners.

The Great Difficulty in Sending Mes sages Is Due to the -: i Weight. J New York Sun Special Service. J New York, Jan. 24.When Marconi was asked whether the time would ever come when a man could carry a received about in his coat pocket and receive messages by wireless telegraphy he merely smiled:, but Captain George Stevens Kemp, one of his personal staff, who sat beside him, said: ... j "The time has come. It is here." Marconi still smiled and looked at his companion indulgently. "Captain Kemp is right," he said, "but the time is not quite ripe." "I have a receiver," put in Captain Kemp earnestly, "that I have carried iiji my coat pocket and hare received mesj sages miles away." i "How many miles?" "As high as thirty miles," returned the captain positively. "I said the time was not ripe," inter rupted Marconi, "because while it is pos sible for a man to carry about a receiver in his pocket and be able to take mes sages, the difficulty at the other end of it, that of sending, is yet to be overcome!. The weight is the only obstacle, but we may overcome that difficulty." "Will it be possible to bring w^eless telegraphy into general use in a large city.like New Tork, for Instance?" "That is a matter which will require considerable thought," the Inventor ref plied. "I will turn my ^attention to that problem just as soon as I have perfected the Atlantic service." A STAND-OFF IN DENVER The House Managers to Adjourn Over to MondayMadden May Be "Fired." Denver, Jan. 24.The democrats are determined to force an election of sena tor to-day if possible. Many democratic representatives camped with senators in the senate chamber all night in order to be on hand when the joint session was re sumed this morning. Should Representative Michael J. Mad den of this city absent himself to-day as tie did yesterday, he will probably lose his seat in the house, as twenty-four democratic representatives have signed an agreement to vote with the anti Wolcott republicans for his expulsion. The proposition originated with the leaders of the anti-Wolcott republicans. Should such action be taken, a senatorial dead lock will be created with fifty democrats and fifty republicans in joint session. The attendance of all the democratic members of the legislature as at present constituted is required to make a quorum of fifty-one, the entire membership being 100. On the ballot last night Senator Teller received fifty votes and he would have been elected, it is claimed by the democratic leaders if Madden had voted. A moderate police guard was maintained at the senate chambervtUl^ night, bu re publican senators arid fepi^entatives as well as the democrats were freely per mitted to enter and write letters. In the house chamber a strong guard was sta tioned and no person was permitted to enter. The house after transacting a little routine business to-day adjourned until 10 a. m.. Monday, by a vote of 39 to 23 democrats and anti-Wolcott republicans voting in the affirmative. There, were three absentees, including Bepresentative Madden, the democrat whose absence pre vented a quorum at the joint session yes terday. No action was taken with ref erence to the proposed expulsion of Mad den. NO PAY AFTER JAN. 19. Republican Senate Tries to Shut Off the Rival Body. Denver, Jan. 24.Radical measures have been adopted by the republican sen^ ate, which held an executive session yes terday in the lieutenant governor's office, to abridge the authority of the rival body and accomplish the removal of its officers. To this end resolutions were adopted no tifying the state treasurer and auditor that W. H. Adams, president pro tem Charles M. Sprague, secretary J. Dooley, sergeant-at-arms, and his assistants, were removed from office and are not entitled to any pay after the 19th day of January. A motion was unanimously carried that the state printer be notified not to take anything to print, except at his own peril from any other body assuming to be the senate of Colorado except that which is certified to by the president of the serif ate, Lieutenant Governor Haggot, or the secretary of the senate, C. F. Haggar. Notices in accordance with these resolu tions were served upon Governor Peabody, the secretary of state, the state auditor, the state treasurer and the state printer. Last evening u committee from the re publican state central committee called upon the democratic senate and asked that a committee be appointed for a con ference. A committee was chosen but when the republicans made known that their object was to reach a settlement of the senatorial controversy the senators declined to treat with them. The position was taken that the democratic senate could only confer with the republicans from the senate or house. It is said that the republican representatives of the state central committee made a definite proposition that the senate should rein state one of the two republican senators unseated a few days ago, thus making the legislature a tie on joint ballot and pre venting the election of a United States senator at this session. It is said also that the democratic senators declared posj itively that no such proposition would be agreed to. .. The republican senators took no action yesterday on the resolution for joint ses sion with the house to vote on United States senator. They adjourned until 10 o'clock to-day. The guards in the house chamber were still on duty last night. A Guaranteed Cure for Piles. ! Itching, Blind, Bleeding and. Protruding Piles. No cure, no pay.

Tired of -searcijirlg for gold in Alaska, which was his first objective point after leaving Minneapolis, Mr. Pray, who is an old sea dog, with a civil war record, joined a filibustering expedition at Seat tle and sailed the rolling main for four months under thV flag x fthe Colombian government. With seventy Americans who had seen service on the high seas during the Spanish "war.1 Pray followed the fortunes of war along the Colombian coast. On board the good ship Bogota, a converted merchantman, the Are-eating Americans struck' terror to the hearts of .the rebels under Victor Lorenzo, the reberWder,' and got credit for being largely ^responsible for the speedy termination of the revolution. When the Colombian minister to the United States purchased the Bogota, he had little difficulty in recruiting a crew of former American ^marines. Her cap tain was Arthur Duttbn, now a police re porter on the San Francisco Chronicle, who served undervWainwright on the Gloucester. Her firs^ engagement was the blockade of 'Cherokee, in the harbor of which the r^beL fleet was bottled up. The Bogota lost one man-killed and three wounded. After that she cruised up and down the coast singly' and in company, bombarding shore batteries and rendering signal service, in the capture of several schooners. .
