Creditors ana Depositors Inclined to View the Situation with Equanimity. An Interesting Bit of Evidence D veloped in the Senatorial Bri bery Investigation. By the Associated Frees. Washington. May 24. The senate bribery investigation committee . has sent the testimony taken in the first part of its inquiry relating to the at tempted bribery of Senators Kyle and Hunton to the printer and expectB to re port to the senate within a few days the result of its investigation. It is understood that the report will en tirely exonerate Senators Hunton and Kyle in the matter. The committee today began a secret inquiry into the connection of the sugar trust with tariff legislation. E. D. Edwards was examined. He claimed that Secretary Carlisle had appeared before the tariff sub-committee and in sisted that sugar be given protection because of party pledges made before the election. Edwards also asserted that the sugar trust had given $500,000 to the Democratic campaign fund in 1892, or to the Democratic organiza tions and that Moore & felly, Senator Brice's brokers, were in possession of the latest amendments to the tariff bill when Senator Voorhees said no amend ments had been agreed to. The con tributions to Democratic funds were on the understanding that sugar would be protected. Edwards said the sugar trust perhaps did not give the money as a trust, but as individual members made the contributions. Mr. Edwards said hia first intimation of Mr. Havemeyer'B interest in the tariff legislation had been received from an interview with that gentleman pub lished in the Brooklyn Eagle Ja-Jt January, in which Mr. Havemeyer t s reported to have said: "We are not without influence in the senate and the tariff bill will be looked after when it reaches there." j Gold Accumulating in London.

Charley Sam, the Chinese proprietor of the Reception restaurant, is in dis favor among his countrymen and he is terrified by highbinders' threats against his life. He was a witness in the recent smug gling cases and the Chinese believe that his testimony was damaging. On Wednesday word was brought him by a friend that he was to be assassin ated in his restaurant some time be tween half past six and seven o'clock in the evening. Later he received a formidable summons to appear at 8 o'clock at Qtiong Yu's store. The mat ter came to the notice of the authori ties and under their secret protection he decided to obey the summons. The murder, if it was seriously con templated, was deferred and Charley was given a chance to square himself by having the testimony taken from the stenographer's notes translated into Chinese for their inspection. He also saw United States District Attorney Ellinwood, who made an ap pointment to meet a delegation of fifty Chinese la6t night and clear Charley of the charge against him. Mr. Ellinwood says that Charley was not only not a damaging witness to the accused smug glers but was such au unwilling wit ness that he was worthless to the government. It was necessary to dis charge him and substitute Joe Holland to make out the case. In Committee Rooms. Washington, May 24.

Representa tives of the Central Pacific companv appeared before the bouse committee on Pacific railways today r.o give their views on the Pacific railroad bill intro duced by Mr. Riley of Pennsylvania. President Huntington spoke of the diffi culties encountered in organizing and building the road. The impression that the builders had been made rich was erroneous. When the road was com pleted there were no government bonds left but many debts. The company always managed to keep its credit good. Shares had been sold from 75 to 80 to pay the debts and Wells-Fargo company had been paid $1,500,000 for carrying the mails and the Central Pacific re ceived but $400,000. f ? V.N IvlXi. f amks A.

De L'OucIe has announced his intention of introducing into the Chamber of Deputies the ques tion of the British treaties with China, Italy and Belgium, alleging that they are a violation of French rights and ex isting treaties.

According to the Temps there is danger also that Eng land will ultimately absorb the upper Nile region. VIOLENT STRIKERS. Suspected Non-Union Miners Fear fully Maltreated. Cripple Cheek.

The plaintiffs allege among other things that money waa advanced by them to the Arizona Construction com pany, now insolvent: that this company and the Gila Bend company constitute a new corporation known as the Peoria Canal company and that these com panies in June 1893 entered into an agreement for the adjustment of their affairs. The plamtitta allege that they were not parties to the agreement whose effect is to tie up the assets of the construction company so that creditors cannot reach them and they claim that thev are not bound by this agreement. This is the last of a series of suits in stituted by persons friendly to the Arizona Construction company, de signed to freeze out the Gila Bend com pany.

The suit is regarded as a continuation of an attempt by the Peoria capitalists to force the Arizona peoole to the wall. The plaintiffs make application lor a receiver. SORTILLON'S CASE. United States District Attorney El linwood has made an excellent fight, but there ie an impression among spectators who attended both trials that the government's witnesses : have weakened, a circumstance due to the varied character of the Indian testi mony. It ia not believed that the de fendant will be convicted. Were the caBe stronger against him, but, still not absolutely dead against him, one thine would tend to operate in his favor, and that ia that under the United States law there ia no middle ground. He must either be acquitted or found guilty of a crime the penalty for which itj cHoii&i. ERSONAL. The End. Verdict and All Is Now In Sight. The testimony in the Sortillon mar der case was concluded last night and the pleadings will begin this morning. Tne witnesses lor the prosecution yes terday were Ma na, the mother of Guerra. the mother of the murdered baba, Bill Bush and Jerry, Mohave In dians, Pedro Aguero, Jose Ruiz, M, Greenleaf. Mackey and Drummond. For tne defense there were Calvert Wilson. Mrs. Muzzv. Wra. Baer. W. H Elliott, the defendant Sortition, Court Reporter Weed and A. 1 ranks. The general testimony though not so exten eive as at the former trial was nioch theame; at least it failed to throw any additional light upon the murder. The story of the Indians was remark able in one respect. It corroborated Guerra's account oi the murder, but only upon that point waa there unan imity. Upon other incidents they were contradictory, evidently showing that they had agreed upon that one feature of the case and had wholly neglected a concerted story upon all the others. All the other witnesses testihed in substance as they had done at the for mer trial. Sortillon's testimony delivered in broken English and a multiplicity of gestures was a contradiction of Guerra's story at every essential point. The case will reach the jury today. The genial Gus Heyman was among yesterday morning's arrivals in the city. Sheriff Campbell of Apache connty waa in the city yesterday on official business. O. B.
