Goldman is a nervy young rascal, who shows no repentance for his mis deeds. lie has been employed about Kismarck for some time and suspicion had pointed toward liim in other af fairs of this kind, but the guilt could never be fastened upon him. CADDELL DEFIES HOUSE TO WRING NAME FROM HIM (Continued from Page One) the house finally adjourned at S: 15 it was exactly where the report of the special #ri»mHtee-found it, with the exception that it had received from Caddell admission that he was the member who had been offered a bribe and [that he was responsible for the story appearing to! the Nonpartisan pa per. whose effect was to implicate the "Old Gang" in this alleged effort to influence the vote of a leaguo house member. Caddell Shows Nerve. Ordinarily Caddel is, a quiet, re served individual. He had, until Sat urday, taken comparatively little part in debates on the floor of the house. His first appearance in the legislature was made two years ago,( when he held some minor position as an em ploye of the house. Last fall he was one of the members of the solid league delegation elected from the 49th dis trict, and his now representing Sioux, county in the house.

BIGGEST BELL IN WORLD Here is the biggest bell in the world, and it never has sounded a clear note. It is the famous bell of Moscow, cast in 1735 and weighing 200 tons. It was not taken from its mold until two years after it was cast, and in the meantime a fire had cracked it and the seven-foot fragment seen in front of it broken away. The fragment is worn smooth by the touch of the hands of thousands of tourists. which ho ifevor would have been sus pected—or which, in all probability, ho would have been incapable but for the emotional stress under which he labored. He admitted that au effort had been made to bribe him he de clared that the man who offered him $2,000 for his vote was a personal friend, and that before making the offer he had plelged him (Caddell) to secrecy, and he declared that the house could not. do what it would, drag from him his secret. No Plea for Mercy. "1 am making 110 plea for mercy, gentlemen," said Caddell. "I am merely stating my position. You may throw me out. disgrace me, if you will,-brand me as unfit to represent my people in this house, but you cannot prevent me from returning to my hoino, to my family, to my wife, and my friends, knowing that I haye kept faith with one who trusted me and 1 will continue to live and I will bo at peace with my own conscience, regardless of anything you may- do to me here.'1 Caddells defiance was delivered in a deadly silence. So still was the house and the spectators without heard some of his phrases—and they were thp only inkling 'lhat could leak Out through any legitimate courco of what was transpiring before a legislative jMJwiy. solemnly sworn to the most sacrda se crecy—reached the densely picked throngs outside the doors. All EJse Was Secret. What else transpired' behind those locked and jealously guarded doors jnay never reach the public. There was much debate heated argument, intense excitement and high feeling. That much, could be deduced from gluimpscg obtained through the glass barriers. .At one time matters become so complicated that Chief Clerk Tot ten was dispatched to the public tele phone to summon Paddock, law part ner of Jifti Manahan of St. Paul, and one of the league's counsellors,, to give the league majority legal* ad vice which would extricate them from webs woven by the minority. And that was a full hour before house fin ally rose from executive session and adjourned. "The matter iii closed unless furth er evidence is introduced," said a member of the special committee ap pointed to investigate the bribery charges. "We left off just where we began. I do not know that we have power to do anything. 1 do not know that, under the circumstances, there will be any further effort to coinpell the member who admits that he was offered a bribe to divulge the name of the briber. I ain not certain that we could compel him to give up this in formation. We have only hearsay evi dence as to the identity of this al lied briber. I cannot say whether it 13 sufficient to warrant sumfironiug hiui-J^fore t^e house. We are, sq. far as 1 con 'sefe at' a ""standstill in the Tiiattler. Wte liaVe lost &. whole legis lative .day without getting anywhere." Demanding Immediate Action. Representative O'Connor in urging the adoption of his resolution, demand ed immediate action. He insisted that the integrity of every member of the house had been brought into question and that a blow had been struck at $offe t%T«)resentative gov efcolalned .the tows re- the penalties, ranging irom to.«ten years' imprisonment and front to $10,000 fine, or both, had been made severe for the very purpose Of. maintaining the parity of the legislative body. A league member followed O'Con nor's plea with a motion that the reso lution be referred to the state affairs committee. Chairman Maddock of that committe moved as a substitute that the resolution be referred to a. special committee to report on the next legislative day. Reishus of Ward insisted that the matter was one .calling for immediate action. "If it is a thing of such commond knowl edge that any reporter may pick it up on t^e street, over night, this house should be able to*get to the bottom o£ the question at once." Twicheil Asks Facta. "This is not a matter for any se lect committee," said Twicheil of Cass. "This is ft. iuater which should com mand imifiediate action before the house as a whole. It is up to the man making this charge to get up here, now, and reveal to the house the name of the person or persons who attempted to bribe him." Burtnees of Grand Forks also in sisted upon immediate action of the house. "Questions of friendship or blood relationship should not prevent the man to whom this offer was made from getting up here now and reveal ing the criminal. It is not a private mater, between friends, it is some thing much targer, involving the fair name of every member of this legisla tive body." League members opposed further discussion of the matter In the open house QQ. the ground that it would give the would-be briber warning which might afford him opportunity to cover up hia tracks. tfo Need for Secrecy. "The briber has received (Jue warn ing through the publication of this story in the morning paper—therq can be no possible excuse for secrecy now —the secrefs.out," insisted Mu^tha of Stitrk.

'Maddock explained that he wautedr the matter kept "quiet" in order that the attorney general might get evi* dence.which possibly could only .be ob tained by proceeding "secretly." Then Patterson of Donnybrook arose with- one of his usual broad sides. "Day after day we have heard here, even wheta we had only small bills- under sonsideration, the cry, "Go Slow'—Let us have time to give this matter good, clean, thorough'consid eration.'

O'Connor, to whose recent two fdays' absoncc, when he was called to the death bead of his sister's husband, C. P. Trepanuier of Orand Forks, Patter son's' remarks clearly alluded, turned deathly white. "Does the speaker refer to me?" he asked, in a calm, level, but tense tone. Patterson squirmed and hedged. O'Connor repeated his question. Again Patterson evaded. Finally the gentleman from Donny brook supttered that he referred to anyone who "got tired and went more." O'Connor dropped a useless quest.. "I will ask," said the gehUeman from Grand Forks, "any man who at tended tW league caucus lyast night if the names of the men concerned in this charge were given." \Vtold of Wells: "They were not given."
