FIXES PENALTY AT CENSURE
sMMt for Soath Car.. a
WASHINGTON, Feb. 27. The subcom
mlttee of senate committee on pr(vllegea
ana elections,, which was appointed yea
terday to formulate a prosecution for tbe
proper punishment ot Senatora Tillman
and McLaurin of South Carolina for their
affeaae to the senate of .st week, today
practically concluded to recommend tnat
th twa senators be severely censured for
their conduct and to limit tb punishment
ta censure. ..... .....
Tbe subcommittee consists of Senators
Burrows, Hoar and Foraker, republican,
and Senator Pettua and Bailey, democrat.
All were present at the early part of the
meeting, but Senator Bailey waa compelled
by Indisposition to leaf the conference
before Its close. Today' meetlsg waa a
very harmonloua one and little difference
of opinion developed, The republican
membera of the aubcommlttee did not them
selves contend for a reaolutlon sus
pending tbe two aenatort, but repreaented
that there, were torn republican mem
bers of the full committee who adhere to
the opinion that through auspenslon only
can adequate punishment be meted out to
the offending members.
Senator Beverldge Is understood to be
among the moat strenuous a'dvocatea of
thla form of proceedings, and Senator Mc
Comas la Inclined to agree with blm. Some
doubt 1 expressed as to whether they
will unite In report limiting tb pun
ishment to censure.
On the other hand some of the demo
cratic membera made it very plain that
they not only would not agree In com
mittee to the reporting of a reaolutlon of
auspenslon, but that If auch a resolution
ahould be presented to the senate by a
majority of the committee they would
resist Its adoption by the senate to the
extent of Insisting on prolonged debate.
The republican members of the com
mittee and many republican aenator who
are not members of the' committee, have
given very sertoue attention to the delay
In the aeaate, and there Is no doubt It la
having a pronounced Influence on the dis
posal of the question. They recognize
the fact that It so disposed the minority
can obstruct all legislation . for an in
definite time and probably continue the
preaent aesslon of congress far into the
summer. Some of them- also hold ' the
view that censure la a more severe and
certain form of punishment than suspen
sion. Theae are the reasons which have led
the republican membera of the aubcom
mlttee to agree to a resolution of cen
sure and nothing Is left to complete the
proceeding but to secure the assent of
their republican colleagues who. ar not
member of the subcommittee. The mat
ter ha been left for consultation with
them, and while the full committee ha
been called to meet tomorrow at 10:30
o'clock the subcommittee will meet half
an hour prevloua to that time. Thla will
afford opportunity to notify the democrata
it there should be a change of program.
