niu > DAY IN Tin : SENATI :
The events of the day leading ni > to the
final vote were full of Interest and Impor
tance. H was a field day for the orators
of the Kcnatp , no less than twenty-five sen
ators embracing the opportunity to speak
on the mibjcct under discussion. That the
debate was IntorctHIng was attested by the
attendance In the galleries , which were
crowded throughout the day , and that It
was Important was evidenced by the state
ments of soveial of the people that the dls-
ciiRelon was but the preliminary alignment
of the great political parties for the contest
Prom 10 o'clock this moinlng until 7
o'clock this evening the contest was carried
on. When the voting was begun It wab
evident that prty linen were being broken
on both sltlcs , but It was on the substitute
offered by Mr. Lodge that the most decided
break occurred. Mr. Allison of Iowa and
Mr. lluriows of Michigan did not answer to
their names on that toll call , and many re
publicans voted directly against It.
On the final passage bamo republicans who
flioported MiKlnley and the St. IxmU plat
form In 1S9G , like Carter of Montana , CM ami-
ler of Now Hampshire , Clark of Wyoming ,
Prllchaid of North Carolina , Shoup of Idaho ,
Wan en of Wyoming and Wolcott of Colorado
voted for the ronulutlui. because , as Mr
Wolcott nnnounccd , they did not believe the
resolution committed tho.sc who binportcd It
to the free and unlimited coinage of silver.

WASHINGTON. Jon. 28. Ui ncconlinco
with ngieemcnt tfio senate convened at 10
Ily unanimous cctiscnt the routine huslnrss
was waived add Mr Stewart ( Nov. ) evened
thu last day's disci.f.slon on the Teller icso-
liitlon. In supporting the resolution Mr.
Stewart maintained that money , whether It
b > silver or gold or i > ai > cr , was a creature
of li , thu cceitlon of money being Inherent
In all independent nallcns. Ho cald that
this btatemeiit had been upheld by thu ' .ilgh-
eat of tribunals and cited historical Instances
of such creation uf money.
After a leg-il dUciibslon of the money
question , Mr Stewart naye , referring to the
tpcech of President MeKlnley In Now York
last nlsht , that ho icgictted to sen that
Iho president had not btuilled this question
moro deeply and that ho was utterly mis
guided. He quoted the following sentence
from the president's bpeech : "Nothing
should ever tempt us nothing ever will
tempt us to scale down thu eacicd debt of
the nation through a legal technicality.
Whatever may bo ( ho language ot thu con
tract , thu I'll Hod States will discharge all
of Us obligations in the currency recognized
na Iho best throughout the civilized world
at tlu > tlmo of payment. "
Mr. Stewart thought this was a remark
able statement , which meant tdmply that
nothing but gold was goal enough for the
bondholder. Mr. McKlnley , said Mr. Stew
art , refers to the option of tbe govern
ment to pay Its obligations tn cither gold
or silver as a mere technicality , and he did
this , too , In the face of his own vote In favor
of the resolution wo are considering , Now
the president calls this option of the t'ovcni-
mcnt .worth thuusanJt of , mlllbni-a mere
technicality. "What language for n presi
dent to use' " exclaimed Mr. Slow-art. "We
cannot use this money In the treasury unless
It Is recognised by other nations of the
world as the best money. The despots and
gold syndicates of Kurope are to name the
kind of money regardless of what the law-
of the. United States may be "
Referring to Secretary Gage , Mr. Stewart
said ho t-elleved the secretary to be an hon-
ist man a man who would not rob a bank ,
but ho said It wae difficult for Mr Gage tn
look at this question , except from the stand
point of a banker. Ho thought It unfor-
turnto that the president had placed the
Treasury department In charge of bankers ,
but ho was glad the president had thrown
off the cloak and made the Us'Jc directly
with the people.
Mr. Cannon ( Utah ) followed In support of
the resolution. He believed that the only
way In which the parity of silver anil gold
as money could be > maintained was to accord
equal privileges to both metals at the mints
IIo held that the only other way to main
tain the parity was to pllo up Interest-
bearing obligations upon the people. He
firmly believed that the advocate. ? of free
coinage vvcro not In favor of niiythlm ? hut a
100-cent dollar.Vo do not bellcvo , how
ever , " said Mr. Cannon , "In the deified dollar
lar of Grover Cleveland , which Is worshipped
by thn present administration " He criti
cised the president for attending banquets
of millionaires In New York , there perusing
his menu bound In gold and then declaring
In favor of paying government obligations In
gold In vlo'atlon of the nation's rights to
dlct.ito what money they should bo paid In.
Mr Cannon said ttat If thcro was no other
reason for Ills support of the resolution ho
would vote for It to nerve notice upon every
creditor of the United States that ho Hhnti'd '
live up to the contract he had entered Into
with the government.
Mr. Jones ( Ark ) 6cgan his speech In sun-
i.iort of the lesolutlon by criticising the po
sition token by Mr. Allison ( la ) , lie thought
the resolution vvoi ld squarely align those
who lichl the various financial beliefs. lie
bald the advocates ofthe resolution piopascl
to pay the full iiound of llesh due , but abso
lutely not n bit more. He lead
o communication In a financial
newspaper to tlio effect that theic
would not bo much serious opposition to the
legislation proposed by the monetary com
mission from the recalcitrant btlvcr neiiatora
Mr. Jones gave notice that the "recalcitrant
iiilvtr scnatois" would have to bo reckoned
with prttty serloufly befoic any such legis
lation as that proposed got through the oen-
ate. Mr. Joncb said ho made the broad stato-
mcnt tl-it no democrat , silver republican 01
populist ever declared In favor of paying
goveinment obligations In a depreciated cur
"Why , " Interrupted Mr. Aldrlch , "tho
senator's own colleague ( Mr. Herry ) said if
frco coinage should not pioduco a rise In the
price of silver he would be In favor of pay-
Ini ; our obligations In that metal. "
"Unt ho did not say that free coinage
would not produce such rise , " said Mr. Jones
"Oh , that Is a mere refinement of langu
age , " replied Mr. Aldrlch.
"My colleague , " said Mr. Jones. "Is able
to t.iKo care of himself and to define his
"Well , I shall tjko up that matter when I
cpenk , " said Mildrich
Mr. Jones continuing bald that the news
papers unfriendly to the cause were say Ins
tb.it bimetallism was deai5. "I believe"
said the Arkansas senator , "that the people's
conviction upon ihls question Is more firmly
fixed than ever before They n e determined
to icstore silver to Us status before 1S73 , and
we shall do all AVO ean to accomplish thai
result. Wo shall march In solid phalanx ,
with shields locked , down to the day of
doom In our efforts for the restoration ot
silver and the lepnbllcan cilcs thit the
Issue of sliver Is dead will fall on deaf ears "
At the conclusion of Mr. Jones' speech Mr.
Pcttlgicw Introduced the folloilns resolu
Tint It H contrary to the Interest , policy
and tradition of the people of the United
States to acquire any tcnltory so situated
us to require a navy to protect It.
The resolution went over.
The first speech of the day In opposition
to the Teller ic.solutlon was delivered by .Mr
Hurrows ( Midi. ) . Ho said that the icpub-
llcan i arty was pledged lo secure If possible
Interratlccial bimetallism and the piesldcnt
would do everything In his power to carryout -
out that pledge. Meantime the exls'lng gold
standard would bo maintained. Until Uie In
ternational agicement was secured the purl -
l > : so of the administration was to continue
the kind of bimetallism wo l.ave now- ,
whereby 500,000,000 silver dollais were main
tained at a ( > arity with gold. Any proposition
which looks to the abandonment ot this
position , which was likely to create a dis
parity between the eoino of the country , wen
In violation of the public faith and in dero
gation of the rights of the public creditor.
In conclusion Mr liurrou.s said that the passage -
sage of this resolution fortunately could ac
complish nothing. It might lead to iilarni
the buslncffl lntcrei- of tbo country and ic-
lard to borne extent the advance of pros
perity , but by the statements of the pics
ldent of the United States last night the
comitry was asdmed that the goveinment n
obllgatlocfl would ha discharged In the- best
money of the world.
Mr. Whlto ( Cal. ) spoke In support of the
rcbnlntlon and analyzed at some length the
position ef the icpnbllcan party upon finance.
Ho spnko of the lack of dofinltenesi of tbo
president's iiietnago on the laiger questions
of finance. The message had referred ta
Secretary Gago's plan , and had Invited at
tention to It. There was no opposition e\-
presbcd to that plan mid doubtless , bald Mr.
White , If the president did not approve the
Gage plan hu would have said eo Thn sen
ator then referred Ironically to the Ne /
York banquet la t night at which the pres
ident spoke. Ho spoke of the men who had
Kathcicd at the feast to consider means of
Improving the conditions of Uio poor workIngman -
Ingman and the fa-mer. It had been rc-
renod to a a Ilolahazziu'b fo-et. Mr. White
read In sarcastic tones the press reports of
puthiislahin and icfrmicps to the pold
standaid and the cold chill which over
spread the banqueters at the mention of
Intel national bimetallism.
M ; . Wolcott followed in support of the
Teller resolution. He thought any senator ,
whatcicihlb financial views , could vote for
the Teller rtsolution , aa It involves nothing
except the carrying Into effect of the govern-
nont's plain obligation * , . Ho thought lugging
Into the debute the right * of pensioners was
entirely Irrelevant He could Imagln. how
ever , what sort of treatment the pensioners
would receive from the IndlanapollB conven
tion or from thu New York Clearing House
association Ho thought that the denuncia
tion and abuio heaped upon those who sup
ported the resolution were unwarranted Mr
Wolcott felt that the resolution ought to bo

llcproscntatlve J. C Otli of Hamilton county ,
who alleges to have been offered a bribe to
vote for Senator Hanna , and Thomas C
Campbell , attorney , who acted us the legal
representative of Otis. There was nothing
In the testimony of either witness to even
Indicate that Senator Hanna , Major Dick or
Major llat'.ibono had any connection with
Gencial Ilovce , through whom It Is said
tlio alleged negotiations were conducted In
fact , Attorney Campbell , who came all the
way from Now York to testify , took occasion
to iay ho did not bellcvo Senator Hanna wan
Interested In or Knew Uojce. Moreover , llojco
hlnibDlf had declared to Campbell that ho
did not know Mr. Hanna , and that if his
liersonnl wishes wore consulted he would i > ro-
fci to see him defeated.
C < unpliell produced a roll ot bills In de
nominations of $100 and ? . " 0 , aggregating
$1,760 , which ho salil Hooice had paid to
him during t'ao 'negotiations. Campbell said
if Ho > co retinned to Ham'ltoir ' county ho
would bo glad to return the money , othci-
wlse bo would use part oP It In pushing a
cult for damages against a Columbus n.tpei.
The Investigation began In the morning in
the Judiciary room of the senate with but
three of the committee prcsont , Fenatoi

Ilctveon S 'inj C o'clock Otis went to tUc
Gibson house and to Ilojco's room , No. 22G
Ho met Hojco and the latter sold to him
that though he was a ( stranger to Otis , he
wished to see him on veij important bu.i-
ness ; that he ropirsented J. IMeipetit Mor-
gro of New York ; th-it Mi. Morgan had great
Interests in Ohio which he desired to have
looked after ; that ho was also a friend of
C. C. Shane of New York.
During the conversation the senatorial
matter was touched upon and Uojce asked
as to Mr. Ilanna'a cli-inccs , to which OtM
replied that he did not thluk them vcrj
Hoico s'.ald that night or the following
night Mr. Sh.ano was to lave an interview
v Ith President McKlnlcj ; that both the
president ard Mr. Shane were Interested ir.

Personally. Hovco said he did not care who
was elected. Aftei telling Mr. Ot'o a num
ber of other stories after the- same fas'alon ,
thcj separated with an nndcistanding tint
another meeting would be held the fo'low-
'ag afternoon , Saturday , at 2 o'clock. Then
it w.is that Mr. Otis decided he needed a
lawyer and went to see Mr. Campbell.
A meeting took place the next afternoon
at the Gibson house. The convcreation was
largely along the bamo line as at the pre-
cedj.ig meeting , rkully llojco and Campbell -
boll were Introduced and most of tlio biii-l-
ncFS after that was tiansacted between them.
Senator Garfleld cross-examined the wlt-
ncas. Mr. Otis admitted he had made no
special endeavor to find out who Mr. Hoycu
was IIo had not been Introduced lo him
either by letter or in any other way. Im-
Ing the conversation the names of no Ohio
people weio mentioned In connection with
tint matter of the scnatorahlp. Mr. Otis
said that nothing was said about DicK or
Hollonbcck or Daugherty or Major Until-
bone , and that Doyco did not proclaim that
Senator Ilanna had any connection with the
ONLY TWO ARD PJinSRN'T.
An adjournment vva-3 taken until after
noon , when T. C. Campbell of New York
and Cincinnati , who represented Otis as an
attorney , was examined. Senator Garileld
had left In the meantime and but Senators
Hurko and Long of the committee vvcro
present. A number of the members of the
Investigation committee of the house were
In attendance and nteo Attorneys Daugherty
and Cyrus Hilling.
After -Mr. Campbell had been sworn ho
said ho desired to have the rule prohllrttlng
attorneys from taking part removed , In or
der that ho might bo cross-examined If they
desired. Thtj request was granted by thu
committee. Mr. Campbell's testimony was
largely a repetition of that given by Mr.
Otis In the morning. Ho said Iloyco anil
Otis came to his room. There they talked
on general subjects , and when asked where
In New York ho lived , Hoyco saUl Jit. Vcr-
non , During the conversation Hoyco said
ho had a ktrong and loving regard for the
president , and talked BO strongly about thin
that finally Campbell began to think ho
was overstating himself.
Otis flna'ly ' left Iho room and Campbell
then asked Hojco directly what ho wanted'
Noyce finally calil ho had conic to help
Ilanna In his election. Campbell said to
him"Dlil you not come from the presi
dent' " To which Uoyco replied that ho had ,
but In which Mr Campbell declared ho
took no belief. Iloyco at la < st 6ald ho would
pay Otis $2,000 for his vote , and admitted
that that was the proposition ho had como
to make Mr. Campbell said that ho did
not think Oils would accept any proposition.
This Interview wlih Uoyco was on Satur
day night. On Sunday Campbell went to tlio
GJtscn house and had another conversat'nn '
with Iloyco. Campbell told Doyco Otis
would not lUten to the proposition ir.ada ard
ho did not know whit pioposltion ho would
liojce replied that the amount offered was
a munificent one , as Hanna already haj
seventy-one voles without Drosto or Line.
Campbell replied. "Then you are doing
this out of the goodness of your heart , as
seventy-four votes are enough to elect a
eerator In Ohio ? "
CAMPIULL : SEES A SHORTAGE
Doyco replied "yes , ' but that he wanted
to show what ho could do and besldea , thcro
bo a ulip and bo .wanted to get tbe
vote of Otis , Drosle > and Lane Hoyc
further pild that he wanted Campbell for
his attorney to win men over and wouid
give him $1.000.
Campbell replied that he had no objection
In getting $1,000 , but ho did not think he
couia accept the proposition.
Plnally Hoycc pulled out a large envelope
and counted out what he said was $1,000
and passed It over and said. "Here Is
Campbell replied' "No , thcro Is only
$800. " Hoyco apologized and handed over
$200 more. Campbell then put this In his
biter , lie saw Uoyco again and told him
that he thought $2,600 , the amount offered ,
vvis beneath the dignity of a representative
and that ho ought to have $10,000. Hoycc
replied that this was all nonsenoe that ho
fart already secured four votes at an average
ageof $1 COO each and another for $ COO
Uoyce then said he woulJ give $3,600 , $1,750
at that time end $1,760 the next day upon
arrival at Columbus. _
Campbell said to Hoycc : "What do you
want Otis to do If your proposition Is ac
cepted ? "
Doyco replied that lie would want him to
wrlto a letter to the president to the effect
that he would vote for Hanna. Uoyco then
wrote a telegram dltectcd to Prcoldent Me-
ICInloy , reading : "Tor the best Interests of
Ohio and the repub'lcan party , I will cast
myote for M. A. Har.ru for > cnatoi for
the short and long terms. "
This telegtam Campbell was to submit to
Otis , aild If the latter accepted the proposi
tion ho was to forward it to the picsldent.
Mr Campbell carried the telegram away
with him and showed It to Jared Bliss , who
volunteered to copy the telegram and sign
Otis' nanio to it , which was done. At the
no\t meeting the telegram , or rather , n copy
of It , was shown to Uoyce. hnd lip waa told
that Otis had finally consented and that
there was a telegram. Campbell oald to
Uoyco : "You will now pay $1,750 and $1,750
when you reach Columbus , " whereupon
Hey co counted out $730 more.
Campbell said : "This does not makn $1-
7 , " > 0 " noyco leplled : "You have alieady got
? 1,000 , and this makes the $1,750 "
CAMPUHLL LOVKS A TOE.
Campbell replied : "I thought the $1,000
was for my fee ? "
Hoyco replied that ho could not give more
then as ho could not let It coat him more
than $3,500 at that time , although Mr. Otis
was to get $6,500 moro when Hanna was
Mr. Campbell then demanded a iccelpt.
which Hoyco did not eaie to give , although
a receipt was finally written for the $1,750
already paid and tlio additional $1,750 that
was to be paid on reaching Columbus. Campbell -
boll said ho would take the ? 750 and the
iccelpt and ahovv it to Otis , to which Uoyco
Too plan was that Campbell and Doyce
and Otis wore to meet the next morning nt
9 c'clock and como to Columbus. Uoyce did
i ot show up , and on a later train than had
at first been Intended , Campbell came to
Columbus with Mr. Otis
The witness here , in resporw to a request
produced the $1,750 he claiBIciI Hoyce had
paid him. Ho said that if Hoyce would re-
tuin to Hamilton county ho vvould glvo him
back the money , although ho might use part
of it If Hoyce did not return , In paying the
expenses of the lawsuit ho had started
against a paper ,
Thlo concluded the examination , but It
will piobably bo resumed Monday , when
Senator Alexander may desire to cross-ex-

The lawjoi's answer was dlicctcd to the

and appeared to aim his question at Mr.
Snow as be said :
"What answer was It jon could not finish'
What was It jou said that the Jury could

"That la not a proper question tocsk , "
said the court.
"Well , I wanted to find out what answer

A murmur of excltcil and angry protests
came from the jury boIn reply. Above

Gartoer , who leaned forward In hl.s scat on
the front row and exclaimed-
"Wo cannot hoar an ) thing. It's all niKed
UD. Wo cannot toll which Is question end

"Head the labt questions and answers , "

"Well , I'll not wait to ha\o It done , "
declared Judge Oaiy.
Later in the day Mrs. I'cldt again took
the stand to impeach William Chailcs , the
foundation having been laid In the letter's
'Will you kindly turn round and give
