In, progress, with the odds strongly favor
ing Chairman Overman and his senate
committee.
The Overman committee adopted a
technical measure of safety to allow Mul
hall to get out of town for Sunday by
remaining In session until after he had
hoarded a 2 o'clock train for New York.
Chairman Overman was prepared to re
sume the Investigation In the afternoon

Qverturcs of peace from both sides
passed back and forth by special messen
gers during the day, and on the last ex
change of courtesies Saturday afternoon
it seemed certain the house investigators
wdtild be given an opportunity to start
nest week with McMlchael or tomo other
witness, provided they made a respectful
request ulon the senate committee for
his production.
The fight, which came, to a 'head late
Friday night when an officer of the house
tried to take Mulhall away from the sen
ate committee at the end of an evening's
hearing, was resumed as soon as prelimi
naries could be dispensed with this morn

retired and Indited an eplstlo to Chair

This called attention to tho attempt of
the house to capture Mr. Mulhall the
night before, and asserted tho determina
tion of tho senate to hold the witnesses
and the papers until it got through With
them. Chairman Overman Bald no disre
spect was meant to the house and that
there wa. no desire to hamper tho other
body's investigation.
It was dispatched by special mes
senger and the committee waded into tho'

Mr. Uarrett said the house committee
might take hold of Mr. .McMlchael whom
Mulhall alleged had received pay from
the National Association of Manufac
turers, while acting as chief page of tht
house of representatives. Mr. Garrett
wanted to know whether it was true thfc
Benate commltttee had told Mr. Mc
Mlchael he could not testify before the

Mr. Garrett protested no disrespect wo
meant to the senate committee, but that
the house, committee wanted to Investi

Again there was a council of war be

drafted. In it Chairman Overman In

tended to keep everyone of Its witnesses
under fts direct surveillance, where they
could be had when wanted: but that it
the house should present a proper re
quest for some witnesses who did not
happen to be then engaged at the senate
side, tho committee would "give, courto

In the meantime Mr. Mulhall, who had
progressed only as far as the latter part

to stay away from the river yesterday

today.
With 11-yeur-old Wilbur Chrlstenson, a

they enjoyed "mud-crawling" and spout
tho greater part of their stolen tlmo dis

fcon boy said ho Intended to sit on the
dike. "Don't do that, tho water's deep
near the dike," warned tho older boy.
Thu warning was unheeded and the
smaller lad waded towards tho abut

Mrs. Sorenson Is In delicate hpalth, and
