Joseph B Foraker of Ohio In too
senate today In a speech In replying
to statements of Herbert J Browne
of this Cit and William G Baldwin of
Roanoke Va who wore employed by

dence of the guilt of the negro soldiers
of the Twen fifth Infantry U S A
In shooting lip Brownsville on tho
night of August 1314 190f The gov
ernment use of the private detectives
was characterized by Mr Foraker as
atrocious shocking and revolting
This charge ot illegally diverting j
15000 from the war fund of 3000000 j
appropriated by the deficiency act of
March 3 1809 was made by Mr For
jker In concluding his remarks which
conshted of a very careful considera
tion of certain legal phases of the
Brownsville affair and the reading of
a number of affidavits by soldiers
whore testimony and confessions
Mr Browne alleged he had secured
to unnivil the mystery of the identity
of the men who did the shooting and
these affidavits denied with great par
tlculnriu nearly every statement of

Speaking of Ute 3000000 war fund
of 1899 appropriated as an emergency I
1o meet unforeseen contingencies con
stantly arising to be expended at tho
discretion of the President Mr For
aker said
It will probably be surprising in
formation that tho appropriation made

ish American war to enable the Presi j
dent to moot emergency army conan
genclos juch as were then arising In I
connection with our military establish 1
meat should have been construod to j
be a permanent appropriation I
Mr Foraker declared that tho
statutes directed the head of each de I
partment to make an annual report to I
congress giving a detailed statement
of tho manner In which the contingent
fund of his department has been ex
This appropriation he paid being
for tOo war department the report
should have been made by the secre 1
tary of war but BO far asI can ascer
tain no detailed or Itemized reports I
to congress of expenditures from this
fund have been made but only general
IOpotg I
Senator Foraker says that waiving
nil technical or doubtful objections I
and assuming for the sake of argu
ment that the constitutional
quoted does not apply the question I
remains whether such payments now
under consideration are legitimate I I
and proper to be made from it it
would seem that granting all I have i
Indicated they aro yet nevertheless
clearly illegal and ln violation of the
following Btatutip provision j
That no employe of the Pinkerton
detective agency or slmllai agency i
shall be employed In any government I
service or by any onlcerof the District
of Columbia
Speaking of tho use of private de I
tectives In Investigating the Browns
Yule affair Mr Forakcr declared that
It Is Impossible to find language with
which to fittingly characterize such tv I
procedure as this detective business
has been from its Inclpiencv down to
the monstrous stages It has reached
It is atrocious revolting shocking to
oxory sense of fairness justice and
Cn common decency <
Mr Foraker reviewed the state
ments made by tho President in his I
moBwiges to congress on the Browns I
vlllo affair It will bo noted ho
said that tho guilt of those soldiers
as charged by tho President was ac
cording to tho President conclusive
ly established the testimony first
submitted The senator said how
err that the President recognized
the necessity of strengthening Ms
Ctsc and thereupon dispatched Mr
urdy and Mamior Blorksom to
P1Iwnsl11n to secure the evidence re
0ltod by them
In the message he sent to the son

tbat testimony thoroughly establish
WILeS tOe committee reported on
tor Foraker said everybody apparent
ly supposed thc Investigation waa end
He continued But not ao As
though conscious that notwithstand
ing all his assertions and declarations
as to the sufficiency of the testimony
It was In fact unreliable and Insuf
ficient to Justify his order of dIscharge
wo were favored with tho further mes
sage of December 14 1908 in which we
were Informed that detectives had
been employed by the war department
and that they have been at work for
months I
Speaking of the reply of the Presi
dent and of the secretary of war to a
senate resolution calling rorlnrormal1 n
on tho detectives investigations Mr
fFornkor said
This message of the Presidentwith
its exhibit and this report of too sec
retary of war present a new arid most
serious feature of this unhappy busi
ness They dQ not only disclose de
termined effort on lip part of the Pres
ident to again bolafoV up the cases
I against these TOeHV but that he has
resorted to a method in his effort to
secure such testimony that cannot bo I
fittingly characterized without the use
of language which If employed might
appear disrespectful to the chief ex
ecutive And worst of all In this en
deavor to secure such testimony the
President has himself committed the
serious offensecondemned by every
court that administers the common
law that has ever had occasion to
speak on the subject that of holding
out to these men an inducement or a
reward for giving such testimony
It does not lessen the gravity of his
offense that it appears to be imper
coptlble to him or if not so that he
has become utterly oblivious to all the
re of law decency and pro
priety In his mad purpult of these holp
Jcssvlctinia of his Hlcousldexedaction
In my opinion aeidefrom the ques
tion whether there has been a misap
propriation of public funds no precc
deit for anything so shocking can bQ
foUnd in all the history of
American crlminial jurisprudence
It will appear from the Presidents
message and exhibits thereto attached
showing the mode in which the de
tectives are operating and tho testi
mony In answer thereto that frau n
ent Impersonation misrepresentation
lying deceit treachery liquor and in
toxication coupled with promises ot
Immunity and the excitement of hope
and fear and tho offer of employment
and remunerative wages have been
been resorted to to secure the testi
mony sought for and that the socall
ud confessions are not confined to
ouch as affect tho parties making
them or to thoso affected by them
who may bo present when such con
fessions are made but extend also to
those not present when they are mace
but who are absent and without
knowledge of what Is transpiring and
Vlthout any opportunity whatever to
be heard In their own behalf oven
to make an objection that such state
ments and such confessions are un
These facts make all such testi
mony utterly Incompetent and worm

When Mr Foraker commented on
a statement of the detectives respect
Ing a letter ho had written to one or
thc discharged soldiers he laid dow
his manuscript and with considerable
ehcmcnce declared
1 have doubtless written some let
ter s needing explanation 1 Havo
doubtless written some letters that I
would not have written It I had all
the Information I got at some other
time But I have never written any
letter since I loft my mothers knee i
of which I have been ashamed or that

As he proceeded his volco grow
n ore and more intense If I nave
shown any undue zeal in commenting
upon this proceeding he said de
porting from his manuscript It Is
not through anger but through that
indignant resentment that any golf
lespccting man feels who is spied upon
by the government he Is attempting
to serve No language can completely
describe such a shameful perform
mice and I do not exempt anybody
from that remark who has been con
nected with It from the highest to
the lowesL
I Mr Foraker read letters from some
ot the negro soldiers denying the
statements of the detectives He re
ferred to a bundle of letters on his
desk and said tho originals were
there If anyone cared to see them Ho
added that so much suspicion had
been cast abroad he did not care to
nfisurao anything
There will be a time he said as
