Austin, Tex., Feb. 27.—By a vote of 70 to 40, Senator J. W. Bailey w as ex onerated, by the lower house of the Texas legislature tonight, of any charges of irregular acts in public life as allege*! by Representative Cocke on January 14. This action concludes six weeks of investigation that has caused Senator Bailey's constant presence in this city. On Monday, by a vote of 15 to 11, the senate exonerated Mr. Bailey with out waiting to hear the report of the investigating committee. The house tonight acted on the rec ommendation of a majority of the com mittee for a complete exoneration without submission of the evidence Bailey's opponents pleaded to havte the evidence submitted before being asked to vote, but the Bailey forces, slightly In the majority, forced a vote. Senator Bailey appeared before the house after his exoneration and made an address, bittery assailing those who had attacked him. Senator Bailey, while bitterly criticis ing his opponents, declared he was go ing to continue as United States senator from Texas for at least three terms. ' The conspirators have been given a wholesome lesson," he said. "Never again will they attempt it within this generation. Never again will they wear the honors of Texas democracy in their life. Such men would betray a republic if Hessians were for hire. One of them was convicted! of em bezzement .and yet he is here today . "They have lied about me. Their model is Hearst, who led his tight against Texas. The leader of this light is the man who had telegrams published, lying on the legislature, claiming that it was corrupted by wine, women and song. Hearst has his emissaries and agents in the Texas legislature today. This Hearst campaign means that they want to eliminate men like me and John Sharp Williams, and place in office men like John Duncan. "How many of these men were like Hawkins, who risked his office on his conscience and lost it? If these others had the convictions and courage of Hawkins, there would not have been a sing;le vote against my vindication here today. "They seek to destroy my usefulness, but, thank God, I am too far above them for them to hurt me. Not a sen tence in the whole record reflects against my personal or political integ rity. "Out of the 40 men who voted against my exoneration, not more than four will be here next session; they will return to the populist party, until I see the election laws so fixed that no man can have his name put on the ticket as a candidate for the legislature unless he records a solemn oath that he will respect the people's instructions. "This legislature ought not to ad journ until section 124 is so amended that no man shall hold the people's office unless he shall support the people's nominee." Senator Bailey will leave at once for Washington, to be sworn in as senator on March 4. GRANT RILES TEDDY. San of Great Warrior Makes Speech Criticising Present President. Washington, Feb. 27.—Official Wash ington believes that if the language at tributed to Gen. Frederick Dent Grant at a speech he made in Philadelphia is proved! to be ap accurate transcript of what the general said, he will lie court martialed. The army' regulations specifically pro vide for the dismissal of a soldier criticising the president or such other punishment as the court-martial may prescribe. General Grant was u guest at the banquet of the George G. Meade post No. 1, G. A. R., at the Union League in Philadelphia. The general, according to accounts, made a short address thanking the diners for their cordial reception of him. and was a1.»ouf-TO resume his seat when there came a shout of "Won't you talk about your father?" The general smiled and said, "Very well, 1 will." ^ *• He continued: "It is with pride that I talk about my father, and I am al ways especially proud to recall the message sent to Canada by England on the occasion of the trouble between that country and the United States in 1867. England notified Canada that in the event of w r ar she could not look to the mother country for assistance, as England was not prepared to fight Gen eral Grant and his million trained sol diers." * According to the report, as received in Washington, General Grant further said: "And I am sorry that the time has come when the president of the United States has to talk and argue with the indieted mayor of a city as to whether or not the United States will carry out the provisions of a treaty with another country." This reference to the present confer ence between President Roosevelt and Mayor Schmitz of San Francisco was, according to report, received with en thusiastic cheers. General Grant, ac cording to the story, continued In this strain: "I do not believe such a thing Would have happened between March 4, 1873, and March 4, 1877." There was another outburst of cheer ing andi cries of "Hear, hear." General Grant was further urged to talk about a his father, and told many interesting anecdotes about the capture of Fort Donelson and the Vicksburg campaign. The articles of war specifically pro, vide for a court martial of an officer for criticisin'? the president. FUNNY TO HIM.
