A sweeping declaration of his in nocence was made by Senator New berry, rup,ublican, Michigan, today in the Senate. Taking the floor for liis own de fense in the ouster proceedings brought by Henry Kord, the defeat ed democratic candidate. Senator Newberry emphatically denied per sonal knowledge of tile collection or expenditure of the large campaign fund spent in his behalf. "As God is my witness, I am not to this day and hour conscious of having done in connection with either the primary campaign or the gen eral election, of 191S in the state of Michigan," said Senator Newberry, "a single act that was, or is, in any way unlawful, dishonorable or corrupt, and this I say to the Senate of the United States without reservation or qualification.

Mr. Newberry added in a dramatic conclusion of his prepared address. His colleague. Senator Townseud. an nounced last Saturday, that Mr. New berry would submit to questioning by senators, but not to heckling or cross-examination.

"1 cannot remain silent any longer during the consideration of my right to represent the state of Michigan as one of its senators," he said. "I did not volunteer to appear before the committee which took testimony in this matter because I really had no information that would assist in the investigation of the charges filed by my opponent. It seems to me that the time has come to speak, because my silence might be misunderstood by my friends. "As my colleagues in this body Know, and as is also well known by my associates and constituents in the state of Michigan. I am not ac customed to public speeches, and ?whatever service I have been able to render to my country or to others has been entirely along lines remote from oral debate. Therefore, 1 earnestly request my associates in the Senate to permit me to proceed with my ?tatement without interruption. I.?7? fane Before Senate. "I shall state the whole case as I know it?fully, frankly and honestly, 8s in the presence of Uod and before *ny fellow senators in this great tribunal, and I shall do this just as completely as I am able to do it. I can add absolutely nothing to what I am about to state to the Senate. I must abide by whatever effect it may have upon the conscience and the judgment of the members of this body. "It is perhaps unnecessary for me to say that I shall confine myself strictly and entirely to the facts as 1 know them to be, and shall not at tempt In any sense, either by argu ment or appeal, to affect in the slightest degree, the Judgment of this body. So far as I am concerned, I desire that the facts as they are shall determine this matter. Commissioned In Navy.

Chairman Davis of the subcommit tee started the inquisition, with Rep resentatives Johnson of Kentucky, Evans of Nebraska and Buchanan of Texas all joining in pressing the in vestigation. Chairman Davis, holding a copy of the circular in his hand, which con tained pictures of Mr. Edward* and his brother, asked who the owners of the Columbia Information Bureau are.

The paragraph in the circular^ which particularly interested the subcommittee on District appropria tions was as follows: "Papers for Eighth Grade; Fifty Cents Each." "We have recently had so many calls for short eighth-grade papers that we have concluded to write them instead of returning the money. They will be from six to seven hundred words long and in keeping with the intellect of an eighth-grade pupil. "As these papers will be much short er than others, and require less re search, we will write the original copy for $2 and sell duplicates for 50 cents each. They will be written by our regular staff, all of whom are college graduates. "Be sure that you order by number and specify eighth grade, as there may, in time, be considerable sim ilarity in the names of these papers and those In the other list." Representative Buchanan of Texas pressed Mr. Edwards hard on the secrecy and collusion promised to the eighth grade pupils who might jse these compositions to deceive their teachers. Representative Buchanan pointed out two lines in black-face type frequently repeated throughout the circular: "All mall sent sealed." "All correspondence strictly confi dential." Fraud on Teaeher Intimated. Chairman Davis, in questioning Dr. Ballou, superintendent of schools, had emphasized In the record that the writing of compositions is part of the school curriculum.

"It is blind to the simplest truth known to every child, the truth that the hungry should be fed and the naked clothed.

LEGISLATION WAITING ON RECLASSIFICATION Why $240 Addition to Salaries Was Omitted From Budget Ex plained?Clerks Need Not Worry. The government employes have no need to worry about the $240 bonus. It is going: to be continued. They have no need to make any campaign for it, because Congress has every intention to do what is right by the government employes, even if they do not raise a finger or whisper a syllable or petition. This assurance was given today by Representative Martin B. Madden of Illinois, chairman of the House ap propriations committee. Mr. Madden explained that the $240 bonus was not estimated for in the budget. His attitude on the floor in explaining that it was left out of the Treasury Department's appropriation bill, was that he thought that provision for the bonus ought not to be included in any one bill until the end of the regular supply bill, when it could be appropriated in a lump sum. Waiting on RecIn??lfication. The idea in thus leaving it out of the several departmental appropri ation measures was that members of Congress are hoping that the reclas sification measure, which has al ready been passed by the House and which absorbs the $240 bonus, will have been passed before the new fiscal year. In that .event, there will be no need for the bonus provision in the current appropriation bills. The Senate committee which is now considering the reclassification meas ure expects to report it out soon and get it passed by April 1. if not sooner. "There will be some kind of a bonus if the reclassification measure does not pass." said Chairman Madden to day. Other leaders in Congress said that if it becomes necessary to make a lump sum appropriation for the bonus, stop-gap legislation until the reclassification bill is passed, the government employes can rest as sured that Congress will not touch the $240 bonus th^ the employes have been receivings help meet the high cost of living. !?? Need for Campaign. "There is no necessity for any campaign on the bonus question." de clared Chairman Madden. "Such a campaign would not add to or de tract from the generous feeling in Congress toward. the government employes. There is the kindliest feel ing and members of Congress are in sympathy with the difficulties of the government employes in meeting ex penses. We realize that many are getting much smaller pay than they ought to receive. "There are two contending factions among the government employes." Chairman Madden continued. "One faction wants one thing and another faction another. My thought in leav ing out the bonus provision from the different supply bills was that if we did not give the bonus now it might induce these two elements among the employes to get together along rea sonable lines on reclassification. Per sonally, 1 am in favor of a reason able reclassification act which is com mensurate with the needs of the service." CLE&KS TO CONSIDER 'RIDER.' Legislative Committees of Six Unions Summoned to Meet. Legislative committees of the six local unions here will be called to gether by the National Federation of i Federal Employes the latter part of the week to consider a "rider" on ap propriations bills so that employes will not lose the $240 bonus while Congress is considering reclassifica tion legislation. Officers of the national organization will meet the legislative committee of Federal Employes' Union, No. 2. at 1423 New York avenue tonight to go over the matter preliminary to the gathering of all six local unions, j In addition to the members of the legislative committee of Union No. 2, which today opened its big member ship campaign. legislative commit tees of the other unions will take part in the gathering later in the i week.
