I have read the report of the conv
mittee appoint id to investigate the
charges against the senator from Illi
nois, exonorating him of those charges.
-That report is signed by eix of the seven
Republicans and four of the five'Dsmo-
crais on tma committee, the ten sen-
ators signing this report are all h-
yets, some of them have been judges,
trained and educated in weighing and
applying testimony, and they . are as
pure and able men as sit in this body,
r , -oori n...";naiiu:. n tu
dence adduced before this committee I
have heard nearly all of the' speeches
that have been delivered on bath sides of
this controversy.' I"ffeard the speech of
the jun'or senator from Illinois in his
own defense, a speech which, in logical
symmetry anaforce, in inherent evi
dences of sincerity and tru'h, in simple
and unconscious pathos, will ever live in
the memory of nil who heard as - one tf
the mast remarkable deliverances ever
uttered in this, chamber. Whan ihxt
speech was concluded my inner comci
ousness said to me, as many peopl j who
heard it have since eaid to me, , if t ie
senator from Illinois had been guilty
he could not have conceived that speech
and delivered it as it was delivered by
him. . ;, -..'""t ' - '.
. " Mr President; It is ' said ia som
sources that the senator from Illinois is
a bad man and unfit for a seat in (his
body. His'spech to which I haye jjwt
; referred answers conclusively the ch rge
of menial fitness for the high offi :e he
now. fil s. That speech, shows that in
tellectually he is the (.ear of any s-ma
tor here, The evidence of people of his
own stile and city, who have known
him all his life, who have known him in
bis business, political and social Kfe;
known him in all the walks of life; the
evidence of his associates in the house
of representatives,' where he served for
more than 13 years, all answer the
charge that be is a bad man and show
that so far from being a man, in purity
of his life and character he is the peer
of any man here. ;--:
V Giving due weight to the report of
the committee, the evidence and thear
guments, under my oath I do not feel
that the evidence is sufficient to justify
me in voting that the senator is not en
titled to the seat in this body to which
the certificate of the great state of Illi
nois, under the common seal of that
commonwealth, declares he is elected.
"That various fraudulent schemes to
promote and defeat legislation were or
ganized in the Illinolalegislature frhlch
.elected the senator, orgnniad when the
senator wai at his hoWsick nitfh onto

death, organized lung before he became
a candidate for the senate and when he
was supporting ano her candidate, I
have no doubt; but that the senator
Irony Illinois bribed anyone to vote for
him or had knowledge of anyone's bsing
bribed ti vote for him. I do not be
lieve, and I do not think there are mny
who do bslieve It, nor do . I believe theTtants was passed by a vote of 40 to 8,
evidence satisfactorily proves that body I
was orined to vote for him. . I
" Mr, President, I c nnot vote to de
prive this mm of his property and de
stroy his character' upon the evidence
of four men, three of whom were off
cred immunity from prosecution for
high crime and misdemeanors and who
accepted that offer upon condition that
they would recant their statement de
nying that they had been bribed and
wear that they had been bribed, and
one man who admitted .that he told his
story of eonfesvion to an inveterate en
my of the senator for $3,600. I cannot
accept the testimony of men of this
character, especially when the three
members of the legislature who they
sy bribed them have each sworn that
there was not a word of truth in their
statements and that they have never
paid tbem, or either of them, any mon
y for their votes for the senator from
Illinois. I cannot accept as a basis for
my vote to destroy the character of
man who has always msintaii.eJ an ir
reproachable character, evidence of men
of the character of these men, espf cial
ly when the three members of the legis
lature who, they sty, corrupted them
and who under ah flatly contradicted
these statements, have been victori
ously re-elected to the- legislature of
Illinois and new hold seats in that hon
orable body, on of them having bi en
elected speaker of the house of re pro
1 Mr. President, we must decide this
question on the evidence and law, Ev-
ury senator must apply evidence for
himself. Upon this question we must
ct as jurors. For myself I do not
question the act of any honorable man
who sets upon his oath. With my views
of this evidence, if I should yield to tin
clamor of newspapers, instigated by
the Chicago Tiihune, the ancient and
relenthsi enemy of the senator from
Illinois; if I should yield to public clam

' FOR TRAVEL
Harriman Lines to Increase Speed
of Their Trains and Give Grea
tef Creature Comforts.
A colonist train de luxe is the latest
announcement of the Union Pacific and
this month when the colonist fares are
put into effect travelers to the Wesc
who take advantage of them will find
an innovation which will be most -com
forting, for they will travel at express
train speed and be fed in comfortable
diners. This striking innovation of the
Union Pacific lines is in direct line with
the policy of the road made known when
it announced the appropriation of S75,
000,000 for double tracking and other
wise improving its Service.
"It is the man who wants to get
bask to the land who is bringing about
these changes," said Qerrit Fort, pass
enger traffic manager of the Union Pa-,
cific, recently. "He came in such num
bers and was o'f such a high class that
we decided he was one of the most im
portant individuals with whom we had
to deal, and so we decided that these
trains de luxe for colonist travel would
just about suit him.
"As a result these trains, equipped
with the finest tiurist sleeping cars
built and equipped with practically ev
ery creature comfort, will be whirled
across the country at express train
speed, and passengers who leave Oma
ha on them will reach San Francisco and
other Western points on the morning of
tbe third day, eight hours quicker than
at present. These trains will only stop
at the more important points en route,
and in every respect except the fare
they will be first class.
- " We shall not only see that the thou
sands whom we expect to take advant
age of these trains are enabled to sleep
and travel in the greatest comfort,"
said Mr, fort recently, "but we also
will see that they have every opportu
nity to secure first class meals, and at
a price which will not cause discomfort
to the pocket book.
" As a Bftmple of what the colonist
may expect here is a menu taken at
random from one of the cards which we
have had prepared:
Ham or bacon.
" And that costs just 35 cent'.
"Then, in addition to that, if the travr
elers wish to carry their own lunches,
we will give them coffee or tea or fruit
at low cost. In our standard dining
cars nothii g is served at less price
than 25 cents, bat in these special di
ners articles of food may be secured for
5 cents, and a full meal, including soup,
may be had at not more than half a dol
When Mr. Fort made known his plans
for this train other Western lines which
will run colonist excursions from Msrch
10th to April 11th arranged to place in
service cars which will be run to Omaha
to connect with the new trains, so that
passengers may board these cars in
their home towns and rido through to
their destinations. Among the roads
hich will do this are the Northwest
