to an inllucnltnl member of Gladstone's cabi

conviction that the only reason why Glad

and the result was that many wuro afraid and
hung back. "The pioccss of cduc.itlon has

ASHINOION , July 21. The Senate at
noon proceeded to the consideration of the
report on the matter of tlio election of Sena
tor 1'nync , nnd was addressed byMr. Pugh In
advocacy of the position taken by himself ,
Messrs. Snulsbury , Vance and Eustls.
Mr. Ho.ir addtesscd tlio Senate in support
of the views ot himself and Mr. Frye , re
commending nu investigation ,
Mr. Lo'/nu look the lloor In teply to the nr-
gumcnt of Mr. Hoar and to sustain the % lows
expressed in the repoit signed by himself nnd
Messis. Tullci nnd Kvaits. Ho was as icady
now as any senator , and ever had been , to ex
pel n member If ho felt justified in so voting.
But If , as In this cisu , the senate was ap
pealed to , on garbled statements , to do In
justice to a man or his icputatlou , ho ( Loiran )
was not the man to do It. Theio were many
considerations In this matter. While he
might bo appealed to on one side for the
bcncllt of his party associations to do an net
which , In his judgment , was not warranted
by law or the facts , he was appealed to on the
other band by the knowledge which he
had of honored age. of honesty of purpose ,
nnd lair character. Kvcryuody knew Sena
tor Payne to liavo been as devoted to the
government and to the country during the
war as any man whoso o\co \ was heaid
within the senate chamber. When he was
asked to deal wrongly with the rights of such
a man Ids answer was that there was no
power in the land that could be brought to
bear upon him , cither from newspapers or
political biawlcrs , to do such an injustice. "I
have been threatened nnd warned , but I
would rather be right than have all the ofllccs
or compliments that could bo bestowed on
me. fApplauso.J There Is not an ofllco In
thccountry that would make mo do wrong to
any man In the senate for political purposes.
I am the wrong man to bo used for any such
purposes. The tirst thing that was said nfter
this decision was arrived at by the committee
was telegrams to various newspapers all over
the country that Logan had requested to
keep the \oto secret That wont to n cer
tain character of papers In this
country. Why was that said about me ?
There is not a man on the face of God's earth
who ever heaid mo request seciecy. In re
lation to any net of a public chai.icter that I
ever perfoimcd. The members of the com
mittee knew that that was a He , nnd the
chaiiman of the committee telegraphed
thioiicli the associ.iled piejs that theie was
no foundation at nil lor the statement I
would like to know why that statement was
made. Why should 1 be singled out ot other
.senators and have suspicions cast upon me ?
it was done Justus mnnv things have been
done since then. It seems to be thought that
now Is time to kill oil icpiiblieans. God
knows that I am too small a person tor them
to commence shooting at tirst Why should
I bo killed oilV I am not in tlio way of any
body , lam not n candidate in Ohio lor any
olllce and I do not want to bo a candidate
for any ollico. "
Keleninc to the attacks made uiion him by
the CommercIal-Ga/ette , Mr. Logan said :
"The Cincinnati Gazette is a vcrv influential
paper , a very powerful pjper. Nobody dis
putes that. It is owned and edited , and has
been for a long time , by a man named Hal-
stead. In thu davs of Abraham Lincoln
Haistcad thought that Lincoln's head ought
to be chucked against a wall and his brains
knocked out , or something like tlmt. That
was complimentary to Lincoln. In 1803 llul-
stead thought that Grant was a djunkenold
loafer , who ought to bo kicked out ot society.
That was complimentary to Grant. I came
to the senate hero almost accidentally , and
the lirst thing I knew when 1 got heio I
picket ! up the Cincinnati Coinmeiclal-Gazetlo
ono day and found live columns of that
paper charging my friend troin Ohio , who
presides so honor.ibly and fahly over this
body , with nil soils of things. The next
thine I found in the Cincinnati Commcicial
was that James G. Blaine was a scoundtel
nnd tlilef and villain who should be ex
ecuted at tlm nearest lamp post I
did not believe it about Blninu. I did not believe -
lievo It about Sherman. I did not believe it
about Grant , nnd I did not believe it about
Lincoln. 1 did not think 1 was n big enough
fellow ever to bo attacked by the Cincinnati
Commeicial. I never dreamed of1 such a
thing. But tlio other day I picket ! It tin ami
to my utter astonishment l found my name
mentioned in it in a complimentary way In
connection witli the names of two other sen
ators who are gicater men than myself. "
Air. Louan lieie quoted fiom the Cincinnati
Comiiiercial-Gii/etto an article ngninst him
self and Scnatois Kvarts and Teller , and
speaking of Kvnits as the representative of
the coal oil in the senate , and that as to Tel
ler ho wasn't worth talking about "The

States senators c.in now bo tenderly laid

Trial of the Annrclilats.
CittcAdo , July 21. [ Special Telegram to
the Hni : . ] To-day has been the most sensa
tional slnca the beginning of the anarchists'
trial. Almost the entire day was devoted to
the examination of William Soliger , n r.ir-
pcnter by trade , and In whose house the dy-
nr.mlto bombs were manufactured under the
supervision of Louis I.tugi ; , ono of the de
fendants on trial. Sellpcr Is , or was , an an
archist , n member ot a socialistic group nnd
recording secretary of thoCarpcntei's union.
Hois regarded as ono of the leading wit
nesses for the prosecution , nnd the most In
tense Interest was manifested In his revela
tions of the nr.nrchlst plots. Ills testimony
startled everyone. The judge was .scrupu
lously attentive , State's Attoincy ( irinuoll
looked as if ho nad reached the land of corn
and wine , and the counsel for the anarchists
weio lumarknbly silent , Mr. Xelsler only
offering few Irresolute objections. Captain
Black and his colleagues , all ot thu prisoners ,
and oven Mrs. I'.irsons , grow visibly older.
Deep Hues came In most of tluslr counte
nances. Schwab's face had a putty-Iiko Into.
Spies seemed to liavo found something at
last that required attention , and oven pro
found consideration. Ncebo simulated a
graven image , but after an abortive elTort
to laugh in the beginning , relapsed
Into numistakcablo gravity , and pretended to
be taking notes. Fisher was visibly pale and
never took his eyes off the witness once.
Flcldcn looked ncrvoiis and troubled. Kngcl
held his hand to his car and appeared stolid
but despairing. Various twilled his small
mustache with tlio nirof Irlglitoncd conceit.
Of the whole lot , Mrs. 1'arsons looked the
saddest Her complextlon was about three
shades paler than usual , and she gazed lix-
edly and mechanically attho witness , asif she
felt that hope had died out of her heait. The
witness seemed ( lightened , and gave his tes
timony in a very low tone of voice. Ho spoke
In German nnd nn inteipreter was used. In
giving his testimony , Seliger sat uneasily ,
with Ids body Inclined forward in a strained
position , both hands clasped tightly about thu
aim rests or. the witness chair. His face was
pale , his eves never lookud steadily In any
ouo direction , but dropped , and from tlmo to
tlmo his gazowandeiud about the courtroom
and he saw hundreds of faces gazing at him
In nmnremcnt ns the dreadful story of the
prepaiations for wholesale bloodshed were
recounted. Seligcr never looked at the an
Scliger testllied that he li\ed in Sedcwick ,
and Ltnug and ono of the defendants
had boaidcd with him. Monday night
befoio the massacie , witness attended
a meeting of the carpenters' union
at .Nell's hall. Tlneucopies of the "revenge"
circular were distributed. Tuesday , at
Iilngg'srequest witness , worked all morning
with three othcrsloadliibombs. ! .They made
about fotty or lltty of them. Llugic Urged
them to work diligently , and said the bombs
would bo taken away that day.
Lingg told him every walking man should
ha\c ( lynamito and know how to use it.
There was iroing to bo an "agitation" nnd
workincmen ought to leain the nsu of dyna
mite , llo said the bombs they wcro mauing
would bo good "fodder" for the capitalists
and the police. The bombs were to oo used
that night Lingg said. When the
bombs weie finished they carried them
to Keif hall where they weio
distributed. Thu hall b.ick of .NclFs saloon ,
witness said , was called the "Shanty of the
Communists. " Communists , anarchists and
socialists , all used to meet theie. When ho
left Neff's saloon , Lingg , Thiellen and ( ius-
tav Lehman weio with him , and they were
aftcrwads joined by two men ot the Lehr and
Wehr Veiuln. All had bombs.
'Tell what you were going to do that
. disturbance was to bo made on the
North side. That was arranged previously.
Other disturbances wcic to bo made on Ilia
West side , to iirevcnttliopolicotrom mas'-jng
at any ono point. " Lingg said thu dlstiub-
anccs should bo made all over the North side ,
to picvent the police iioni going to thu West
side. As they passed the Launbco
stiect police station Llnig said It
would be a beautiful tiling to tluovv
In a couple of bombs. From I/irrabec stioet
ho and Lingg went up to Webster nvenun
station. A patrol wagon came up. Lingg
said ho was going to throw in a bomb ; that
it was the btst time to do it I said It was
not a good time ; that It would houseless.
Lingt ; became excited and wanted me to
give him soiiio fuo fiom my cigar. I
went Into a hall nnd stiuck a matc.li
as U I was going to give It to him. The pa-
tiol wagon passed before the match lighted.
Linirg wanted to follow the wauou , Ho
thought there was trouble on the West side
and wanted to know what It was. I per
suaded him to go home little bufoio 11 o'clock.
Lingg asked mo If 1 had seen thu notice in
thu papers that armed men were to hold a
mooting on tlio West side. Hu showed mu a
copy of the Arbclter Xoitung and pointed to
thu word "Untie , " which , ho said , meant tlmt
theie was to bun meeting and that every
thing was to bo tuinoJ upside down.
Tlio vvoids , "Huho" was a signal for all
aimed men to assemble on the west side. The
word woid was selected to give- men notice
that tlicio was to ho trouble. "Lingg and I
went to Nell's hall whoio a number of others
wero. llaiman said to Lingg In a very angry
voice , 'you are the cause of it nil. ' Then
some one told of the Haymaikot affair and
said the bomb bad killed a great many. IJnirc
sihl nothing on their way home. Lingg said
that oven now ho was scolded , jibed nt for
the woik hu had done , that his brothers In
the cause did not appreciate him. Wo bid
our bourns under the sidewalk , It was about
midnight when wo reached home. " Witness
Identified a number of the Implements used
by them in the nmnufactuio of their bombs
and described how tbu dynamite and other
stuff was brought Into the house. Witness
knew Knglc , and tlioy belonged to the same
socialistic L'loup. Ho had often heaul Kngle
make speeches saying that every workingman -
man should make bombs.
Inglinm hero hold up n piece of gas plpe >
and askeed : "Is this the w y a bomb looks
when It Is ready to go off ? "
Tlm Court-'Ms that loaded ? "
"Yes , your honor. "
" 'lids is no place for It , " bald Judge Gary.
The spectators wcro evidently very nervous
at the Implements of socialistic warfare , and
thu women present looked very much
alarmed. The prosecution assured tbocouit
that they were not dangerous and Inspector
Bonfleld offered to taku them Into tlio next
room and take off the caps. But the cbuit
said the next room was no place for such
work , The bombs were taken to the lake
front for the operation.
Witness lesumed his storv. During the ear
drivers' strike last year delegates from differ
ent group } used to meet uvciy week at the
ArbcitcrZeltung office. Neebe , .Schwab and
Lingg were members of the groups. Thu
Not th Sldo croup had rilies and drilled with
them. Witness identliled a copy of llurr
Tlio defense moved to liavo the testimony
all stricken out on the ground of ii relevancy.
This was overruled and the cross-examina
tion was begun. Witness said ho had been
made no piomfso by thu states attorney or of
ficers , who simply told him ho had hotter tell
tee truth. He did not know that Ids testi
mony or statements would prevent his being
tried for murder. The cross-examination was
Eevero and searching , but the witness' testi
mony remained unshaken , and at 1 o'clock u
recess was taken.
Not a single dull moment elapsed during
the afternoon. The jury , lavvyuis , judge and
spectators were kept lixedly , without the
lightest relaxation , tit.tho same hl h , icuslon
to which they were raised when the da > s ex
citing developments began In the early
morning bouts. A determined attempt was
made by the defense to show that the bombs
manufactured the afternoon of the day on
which the mnssnere oecuried had no neces
sary connection with thu riot In the llnjiiiar-
ket. The witness was enuiht up and iimdo
nnsvvers moro or less satisfactory to the de
fence till tlio court decided that the attempt
had proceeded Inr enough. A now line of
queries was quickly substituted by Foster ,
tlio objert being to Impeach the ciedl-
blflty of Sclleer nnd' nlaco him In ns
odious a light as possible before
the Jury. llo was pattly successful ,
though without affecting the weight of his
te.-tiiuouy materially. Sellger told how ,
on bclnc liberated by Captain Selmnck , bo
nnd his w Ifo w ent homo together. Solomon ,
onu of the attiirnovs for thu defence , soon
called on them. Solomon endeavored to In
duce him not to testify aealnvt the defend
ants , and to tell Captain Sclmaek that his
pievlous statements could not &bo substan
tiated In court.
Mrs. Seligcr was then placed upon the
witness stand and gave her testimony in a
thin , ttebio voice , Sno wns very neivousnnd
at times embarrassed , but displayed noiuuif
lliecraveniu sthatehainctcii/.edherhusli : > nd
on the stand. Lincg , she said , eaiuo to board
with them two weeks befoio Christmas.
"Did you ever see any bombs in your
house1 nsded tlio state's attorney.
"Shortly befoio May 1 saw some ns Llngg
was about to hide them. Thuiu were about
hall n dorcn l.\inuf In his bed wnlch hn
wanted to hide , both long ones ami loiind
ones , and gas pipes nnd shells wciotheio. "
She had no talk with him there nbout the
bombs. Klie did not see any moiu of them.
On thu night ot the riot she heard people
say that bombs had Inllcn at the
Havmaikct. That day them were sov-
i-i.il men in her house-six or
els-lit , perhaps still moie. Amonirthem wcro
Hucbner , Huemann , Tliell , Lingg nnd her
husband. They weio In the house until to-
waidsevening , coming and going all tiny.
The men weio woiking upon the bombs , bhe
did not pay particular attention , but remem
bered tlmt llucuiann was lillUK. Said Mrs.
Seliger : "I was In the kitchen. When sup-
tier was ready 1 went In wheie the men wuie.
1 was so mad that 1 could throw them all out. "
"Aie you a socialist , Mrs. ScllgerV" inter
jected tue state's attorney.
"No , " snapped the witness. "They always
scold me. 1 frequently saw Llugg melting
lead light on my stove. Twicu Huumaiin
was with him and once Tblel and my hus
band. Lingg would say to me'Don't net so
foolishly , standing tlicio ; you might be doing
.something too. ' " Witness saw Lingg tlio
day alter the bomb w s thrown. Ho wns at
home In the foicuoon.
"liavo jou over seen tills Instrument ? '
said Grlnnell , exhibiting nn lion spoon into
whli'h thu dynamite was lilted.
"Yes , " wns thu reply , "Lingg was nlvvays
casting with that" ,
Mrs. Selurer was eioss-e\amlned for the
defense by Foster , who bc an with a bland
smile , saying :
"You hnvu been locked up on account of
this bomb business , 1 believe , Mis. Sel-
igei ? "
"Yes , I hn\o been locked up on account of
that man Lingg , " uusweied the witness
The lawyer was a little staggered , but rc-
coveied himselt quickly and eudeavoied to
show that llio witness was actuated by spltu
against Lingg. ( Jtherqucstlons weicdirected
to ascertain whetliur the Seligcis wcio in
iccelpt of money liom tlio police. Tlio Inci
was biought out that since the riot Captain
Schaack had paid her rout and given her
baicly enough to scantily live.
"How old is your husband , Mis. Scligcr ? "
" . "
"How old are you ? "
The little woman winced , then flushed to
the roots of her hair , nnd said : " 1 am foi ty. "
Beloie Mis. Sclleer recoveu-dfrom her con
fusion , tliii attorney piopounded the follow
ing : "Immediately alter tlio riot dld not
you and Mrs. Thlel agree thafyou would
raise a pur.se of money for Lings and send
htm out of the cntmliy , and then lay the
whole bomb making scheme on him1
Witness denied having even talked of such
apiopoiition. bholiadn conversation with
Mis. Thlel at the time refened to , but nothing
of the kind alleged was mentioned.
The hourot adjournment had arrived and
the long session oiuled by the stale's attoiney
