Thurston Wants to Defend Himself. A
Long Struggle in the House
Thurston Won't Have it
All His Own Way.
So soon as the legislature rea-sem
bled after Its week's vacation, the
committe cn bribery examination be
gan its work. Sergeant-at-arms Dun
gan, who bad been' so ridicu'ed and
abused by the republican papers, came
before the coramitiee and made a com
plete statement of what he knew in the
ease, and he made a clear and convinc
ing statement in spite of .McKesson's
efforts ta bulldoze him. The substance
of his testimony was the same as given
: last week.' ,: .
.The bribery investigation was re
nawed . Saturday morning, the testi-
mony taken beirg as follows:
Edward Kr.ck. sworn and testified as
. follows: -
By Mr. Casper: Q. ' State your
- name ar d where you live.
A. Edward Krick; I live near Min
den, Kearney county, Nebraska.
Q. What is your relation to the
house, Mr. Krick?
A. I am a member of th8 house.
Q. You may BUte what yon know of
this matter in controversy.
, A. Of course I have had in my mind
and so forth about this bribery matter
for many ears. and when I came down
here I found it was the ca-e. Mr.
Durgan and myse f talked it over
many times, and in xjonversatlon he
spoke of this, that if they co ild be
caught in a deal of this kind it was
something that ought to bj exposed.
Then in the evening when this matter
happened, which. I believe, was about
the 9th, I met Mr. Dungan. (I came
from my boarding place atd I met Mr.
Dungan and Mr. Soderman;) I was go
ing up stairs to a friend's room to take
011 my overcoat and overshoes, and I
met them at the head of the stairs and
Mr. Dungan remarkpd to me that
those ducks were here and could be
caught, and asked me if I wanted to go
aioog in. I say, -'ycs, gentlemen, I
will accompany you;" and 1 walked intj
the room with Mr. Duman and Mr.
Soderman. Now, Mr. Dungan intro
duced us to these two gentlemen who
were this Mr. Walsh and a man by the
name of Roeder. After we had the in
troduction he offered us then a smoke,
and found Mr. Sderman was a ivan
thatdidnt smoke, and didn't take
a cigar; then the offered us something
to drink, and of course got to talking
in regaid t this senatorial fight. We
were talk ng the matter over and they
says like this: "Gentlemen, we are
going to have five men by tonight. By
12 o'clock we have got to have thefe
men, and you folks may just as well get
part of this mony as omeof the other
oues. No 1 will tell you wha. wo will
do. If you folks will vote the fourth
and fifth ballot e will give you $1,000
apiece." Now after that was over they
asked us if we knew Mr. Thurston, and
I made the remark I said that I knew
Mr. Thurston or had met him or some
thing like that, and Mr. Soderman says
"I never met the gentlemen," and as
soon as he made that remark they said:
"We will get a hack and take you down
and get you acquainted with Mr. Thurs
ton and we will fix up the deal with
you " I made the remark to them like
this: "Gentlemen, it is too early in the
ai?ht." I wish to say the reason I made
tuat remark was this: I meant these
gentlemen should keep on our track
and so long as they were on our tracks
they would't follow others, and I says
to them that we proposed to meet them
or in other words we would &ee them
later; that is about the expression, aud
we left the room a"d weut down into
the bar room, and when we got down
below, 1 remarked to Mr. Soderman.
"Soderman you better get out of
this and I will leave fr my room," and
I went through the hotel below and
struck for the door, and as I left the
door I walked hastily across the s'reet
and when I got across the street,
I saw that Walsh was following
me out. Now, as Walsh followed me
out, he d'dn't catch which way I went,
and he walked up toward the drug
6tore next to the Lindell, which would
be west, and he whistled; then he
turned around and came to the corner
there, and came up to the church that
is south from the Lindell,and whistled
twice; however, he lost track of me
and I went to my room.
Mr. Steven: You said that you were
requested to east the fourth and fifth
ballot. Who was that to bo cast for?
A. .For Mr. Thurston. v
Q. The fourth and fifth ballot was
to be cPt for Thurston? f
A. He didn't say which one of the
the two. He says, "Gentlemen, if you
w - l. . i 1 1 i - it, m ,J r r -V- v -
will cat the fourth and fifth we will
give you $1,000 apiece."
Mr. (Jasper: wnat aic you unaer
stand that to be; the fourth and fifth
A. I understand that they said they
wantFd five votes that nirht, and that
tbey must have them by 12 o'clock.
Mr. Stevens: You and Mr. Soder
man were to make the fourth and fifth
men that they were wanting to buy?
A Yes sir.
Q. Of the five they wanted to buy?
A. Of the five they wanted to huy.
Mr. McKesson: You say you had con
versation with Mr. Dungan prior to
th's concerning bribery at (ha apitol
A. Not at thecapltol aloue.butothers
Q. Then your conversation was simp
ly on bribery in genera'?
. A. Yes sir, in legislatures.;
Q Did you have any conversation
with anybody else concerning bribery
here prior to this time?
A. No. I don't know as I could ans
wer that in this particular case.
Mr. Casper: Is it the general im
pression in your community that legis
lators are bribed?
A. Not genera'ly-so.
Nr. McKesson: You had no specific
agreement whatever with Mr. Dungan
prior to this night that he m'ght nego
A. No sir.
Q. Or deliver the same? ,
A. No sir.
B But you fell in with his plan of
catching these fellows as he said, im
mediately upon his announcement to
you that there was a chance to do it?
A. I so made a statement right in the
forn part of the t'imony.
Q. Did you and Mr. aoderman nave
s conversateon concerning bribery in
the evening of the 9th at the Lindell
hotel prior to the time that Mr. Dun
gan mtde this proposition?
A. No sir.
Q. You were never a pirty to a con
spiracy to fasten guilt upon any parties
of the charge of bribery prior to this
conversation with Mr. Dungan?
A. No sir.
Q. Then bo far as you know, or had
any conversation, there were no other
members of the legislature who would
agree to pretend to sell their
votes ' for United States senator
for the purposeof catching boodlers?
A. Not with these ron
Mr. Casper: What do yo i maij by
"thfse men"? Do you mean Messrs.
Walsh and Roeder?
A. Yes sir.
THURSTON WANTS IN.
Mr. Stevens: Mr. Thurston wants to
know if he can make a request of this
committee- 1 . '
By general consent the witness was
excused and Mr. Thurston admitted.
Mr. Thurston: Gentlemen, I nctio?
that the testimony taken by your com
mittee yesterday indirectly rouhtmy
name into connection with the sup
posed charges in reference to the 1st
senatorial contest, in view of which I
ask of your committee tbe ri?ht to ap
pear and examine any witnesses whose
testimony in any manner tends to point
toware any charge against me.
Mr. Stevens; I will state that to ad
mit Mr. Th'irston before this commit
tee, one of the ablest lawyers, so rec
ognized In tha site,in his self-defense,
would compel the committee to secure
equally as able counsel on tbe other
side to protect the witnesses from the
experienced ability of the gentleman,
and as one of tho committee I do not
want tojdo this.

OHIO'S GOVERNOR OVER
WHELMED BY MISFORTUNE.
BASELY BETRAYED BY A FRIEND,
Every Cent of the I'ropnrtr of tU Dis
tinguished Republican n 1 Ills Wife
Lost, mod Heavy lleb t tlll Lett
Will Abandon t Vol I tics and
Practice Law to Recoup
Ilia Lost Fortuue.
Chicago, Feb. 22. Governor McKin
ley of Ohio, who has been made a
bankrupt by over confidence in the
uprightness of an old friend, has asked
11. H. Kohlsaat of this city to act as
his trustee. The conference which led
to Mr. Kohlsaat's selection was held in
Cleveland Sunday evening, when it
was found that the governor's liabili
ties were $95,000, a sum nearly five
times as large as he had saved during
the 49 years of his life.
Mrs. McKinley has property which
she inherited from her father which
will probably net $75,000 if sold under
the hammer and she proposes to turn
this over to Trustee Kohlsaat. She is
an invalid and her friends protest
against allowing her means going to
cancel the governor's debts, incurred
by another man, but she insists.
Thus the noted coup1" . ill become
penniless. They will lot,,-1 eir Canton
home and all their hous.... Id goods,
Mrs. McKinley's farms and ytliing
else and in poverty they m. . begin
Mr. Kohlsaat in an interview said
that as the transactions between Mr.
McKinley and himself had been made
public he would tell the story of the
calamity. He considered it one of the.
mosD unfortunate things that had hap
pened within his memory. He said:
"Mr. McKinley is the victim of the
most aggravated treachery. He
never knew to , wha$ .... extent he
was becoming involved, because he
trusted implicitly in the judgment of
his friend. The exposure of his falsity
completely unnerved , the governor,
and while political reverses were ac
cepted as a part of a political life, he
is almost unable to endure the present
crash. But, honest man that he always
has been, he sadly- told me that he
would begin again, and no man should
lose a cent who lent him money by
reason of his name."
"It is probable" Mr. Kohlsaat con
tinued, "Myron T. Merrick, treasurer
of the Society of Savings of Cleveland,
will act with me as trustee. At pres
ent it is not possible to say how the
financial end of the calamity will be
settled. The governor will turn over
every penny he has, but this will only
be a drop compared with the aggre
gate liabilities. He sa d his wife was
thoroughly decided to help him out
with her own means. The governor
will retire from politics, since he can
not hold office and again get up
financially. He said he would begin
his law practice again and make it his
object in life to pay all that he had
been dragged into owing. His affairs
are a complete wreck, the failure
taking the modest home and its con
tents. .The friends of Mrs. McKinley
declare that she must not put her for
tune at the mercy of creditors. Just
what will bo done by her is not
yet decided. She is positive
one way; her friends are equally
decided the other. A dispatch
received last evening says Mrs. McKin
ley is with her husband in Cleveland,
and the parties were in a conference
as to final action. He once had a good
practice, and his brilliant reputation
will add to it. He talked of resigning
his position as governor so as to enter
actively into the practice of the law,
but he will probably not do so. He
will, however, not seek a re-election,
but at the close of his terra will retire
from politics and engage in his pro
fession so as to pay his creditors an?
restore his fortune." .

SHERMAN'S BOND SCHEME,
4 Lively Flht to B Made on tho Mea.
nre la tho Homo.
i Washixotoh, Feb. 23. From present
appearances there will be a very warm
contest in the house over the bond
scheme tacked on to an appropriation
bill in the senate last Saturday. It is
no .secret here that Mr. Carlisle has
Bged the passage of this bond bill and
pleaded earnestly with all his friends
tn the senate to support it Tho house,
howo.cr, will not be likely to take
kind'v to any scheme for the
isiu...g of bonds, believing that
it to a great extent a
devicd of the nattona. banks in ordsr
to get more bonds in circulation for
the perpetuation of their own exist
ence. The bond bill being put on as
an amendment to an appropriation
bill will be reported to the house as a
part of that bill, and then the fight
will commence. The opponents of the
nuing of bonds will insist that the
bond scheme, being new legislation,
will have to be discussed in committee
of the whole instead of being sent to
the committee of conference or. ap
This will be the plan of attack. Mr.
Bland and other opponents of any new
issue of bonds declare that they will
defeat the appropriation bill to which
it is tacked on if necessary," rather
than permit the bond act to become a
law.- The chances are, however,
tat the advocates of the new
issue of bonds will not
go to that extreme and that the snnre
will retreat from its amendment nwi
allow the appropriation bill to pass
without the rider, but from present
appearances there will be a fight over
it and it will require all the energy
and skill of Mr. Bland and his friends
to prevent the act from passing.
RAILROAD VALUES TOO LOW.
The Missouri Commissioners Censured
and Ordered to Raise the Figures.
Jefferson Citt, Mo., Feb. 22. The
house this morning BCpred the board of
railroad and warehouse commissioners
and.br a vots of 79 to 23 adooted reso-
hutions whiJh in themselves reflected
severely upon the board.
The action was taken when the con
current resolution to tax railroad fran
chises was called up. A substitute
for the resolution was offered and
adopted, calling upon the commission
ers to increase the railroad valuation.
In the argument it was brought out
that the railroad valuations at present
are at least ten per cent below those
of other property, thereby allowing
several millions of dollars to escape
The bill to increase the state revenue
from dram shops from fifty dollars to
$100 per year was reported favorably
with amendments providing for an ex
cise commission in St Louis and Kan
sas City. "
In the senate the bill to prohibit
material men from filing liens on
houses for material furnished was de
feated. The bill declaring all ware
houses of 50,000 bushels capacity or
more public and placing them under
control of the state board of railroad
and warehouse commissioners was
passed. . It applies particularly to
Kansas City and clears up the inspect
ion muddle at that place.

have shot two rabbits. To the killing

Maryland?" "How so?" inquired Mr.
Harrison. "By shooting a rabbit
We are only allowed to kill them over

VERY MUCH DISCOURAGED.
Friends of tho Strip liftl Downcast Bo
ease tho Speaker Broke His Promise.
Washington, Feb. 22. The friends
of the Cherokee Strip bill are- greatly
enraged over their luck in the house.
They met with utter defeat in two at
tempts to get the bill before the house.
Speaker Ahsp, according to Chairman
Peel, promised to recognize the chair
man of the committee on Indian affairs
immediately after the omnibus claims
bill depose i of. and at that
moment t . .1 arose for recognition,
and, much .w his surprise, Herbert was
recognized and the navy bill was taken
On making inquiry the speaker
stated that he had decided to make a
change, and in the matter his word
was law. He then promised to recog
nize Peel as soon as the committee on
agriculture was passed. This was
some comfort, as it was reasonably
snre that that committee would be
reached and its business disposed of
in time to give the strip bill the, time
necessary. On this .promise . the
friends of the bill rested their case
feeling reasonably certain they were
safe and the bill would be sent to the
committee on conference before the
While everything was going along
smoothly and nothing annoying was
expected, Kilgore put in an appear
ance and commenced to filibuster on
Hatch's, bill from the committee on
agriculture. He took up his old stand
and consumed over an hour at this
foolishness before he was defeated,
and business proceeded. This pre
vented reaching the Cherokee strip
bill. So it will be seen that Kilgore
and the rules of the present house and
the speaker of the house have operated
fearfully against the opening of the

TO CONTEST THE SEAT.
Another Senator la to Bo Elected Oat la
Topeka, Kan., Feb. 23. Another
man will be elected to the United
States senate from Kansas, and the
eat claimed by John Martin will be
contested by either Bailey P.Waggener
of Atchison, Colonel A. A. Harris of
Fort Scott, Ed Carroll of Leavenworth
or W. H. Kossington of this city.
All of the Republican legislators
were gathered together in caucus last
night and the friends of Waggener,
who alone seemed to be in touch with
the Republican movement, sent ' dis
patches to their candidate, and he ar
rived in town last night . W. M.
Mitchell and J. B. Crouch, the stalwart
Dnmnerata, were looking , nut for the
interest of Colonel A. A. Harris and
the Republican members had Mr. Ros
sington's boom in tow. The proposi
tion agreed upon was simply to nave
the Democratic members , submit the
names of the good Democrats , to the
Republican caucus which was to se
lect the candidate. '
Assurances have been received here
from Washington that if a straight out
Democrat should be returned from
Kansas he would be seated in prefer
ence to Martin, and the idea now, since
it seems sure that the Dunsmore house
will be declared UJegal, is to. have the
Democrats and Republicans get to
gether and elect an out and out Dem
