The making of these charges by Mr. Fuller has occasioned considerable discission. The plaintiff gave as consideration for the notes a statement of money advanced to Fuller while he was the senator's secretary. When the case was first called for hearing. Fuller attempt ed to prove that the senator had con tracted to give him $ 1,(100 more than the salary ordinarily allowed by the government for such services. Th> evidence was not allowed as the sign - ing of the note was held to have wipe" out any previous contracts made be tween the parties. "What do .you expect to prove this evidence?" the Judge asked. "I expect to prove," said the defend ant, "that there was no consideration for the note, and that It was procured from me by duress," was his reply "Why^dld you not so state In your anawprf* asked the Judge.

Fuller Admit* Debt of $100. T admit that I owed him $100 but no more. After t left his employ, our wavs diverged. He won his seat in a fight against the Dubois element, and after he was seated he went over to the Dubois crowd. When he did that I left them, and he did not like it. "At the next ■ session of the legisla ture we were trying to get the Clear water county division bill through. I was in debt to W. fit. Lleuallen for the sum of $553.

"It is absurd" | he said, "for Fuller to make such charges. Any one who knows me j knows that T would not make him an offer of more than the government sal- i arv 1 Offered him the position, and j he was delighted to accept it. Dater j he complained to me that the salary j was not enough, and that he had lost j money by taking the position. That is true. It is true of all such position-. But I told him that I lost money hy being senator, and did not feel as if I loaned I could make it up to him him money, and paid notes that I s ik n ' ed with him. and if I had kept a strict account the amount would have been much over $1.100. I allowed him to turn In a number of counter charges an« it finally came below $1.200. I told hint to give me a note for $1.100 and I would let It go at that. "/« to paying me to get this bill through, 'hat is quite as ridiculous. The hill was a public measure, and I could not possibly have power to pass or defeat it.
