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."
"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
"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-
"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,
"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.
"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."

with reference to the testimony before

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

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.
According to the authorities at least
twenty bandits of the famous Hole-in
the-Wall coterie of oriminals had banded
themselves and formed a plot to rob four
banks. A snowfall interfered with the
plans of the gang, but three of them be
gan a raid on the Bridger bank.
The holdups were trailed in the snow
and captured by a posse the second day
after the robbery. About $30,000 was
stolen, which has not yet been recovered.
Extra guards have been posted about the
jail in anticipation of an attempted de
livery. Saws smuggled to the prisoners
have been discovered by the sheriff.
This 1st he second time a plot has been
formed to raid Red Lodge. Last sum
mer officers received word that the
Hole-in-the-Wall crowd were on their
way to hold up the town. The despera
does, however, learned that the officers
were prepared to receive them and aban
doned the plan.

The Great Difficulty in Sending Mes

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."
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
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
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.

John H. Pray of Minneapolis Has
Been Filibusterrlg Along the
-Colombian Coast.
Though a Civil War Veteran, He
* Wasn't Too Old for a
An eventful career has been that of
John H. Pray of Mlnh^polis, i a charter
member of the.Union Veterans' league,
since leaving thji city two years ago.
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. .
Mr. Pray has the names of the ship's
crew, and when things ' look right for
trouble in Nicaragua or any other south
ern republic , his shipmates will all be
ready for another "go."w
Mr. Pray, who is over 60 years old,
served through^the civil war as master's
mate on the Pocahontas and on the Al
batross. He was the eighth man to join
the Union Veterans' League of Minne

Sometimes we are greeted in the
morning by flags at half-mast for some
~~ prominent official who yesterday
was apparently in perfect health.
When we inquire the ailment by
which he was stricken it is not un
common to be told "acute indiges
tion " or "stomach trouble."
It is time people learned that in
digestion or any form of
"stomach trouble" is not a
thing to trifle with. The
result may not be fatal,
but there can be no
condition of diseased
stomach which does
not carry with it phys
ical loss and weakness.

"Thanks to Dr. Pierce's Golden
Medical Discovery," writes Mr,
Charles H, German, of Lehighton,
Pa. "It is the only medicine that
has done me any good. I tried every
thing I could think of to cure indiges
tion, and found f was only throwing
away niooey. Then 1 heard of Doctor
Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery and tried a
bottle of It, and to my joy found It was doing
me good. I used six bottles of it, and am now
cured. It is the best medicine on earth."
This grand remedy does its work in
a thorough manner it gives the
health that is all health the strength
that is solid, substantial and lasting
not flabby fat, not false stimulus, but
genuine, complete, renewed vitality and
