Recites a tittle JIoo Crookedness as a StandOff ami Dan Declares It Inciting The Itcsolutlon Adopted j WASHINGTON CITY Jan As soon as pportunity offered in the senate yesterday roorhees called up his resolution relating to ho blocks of five latter and ColWWDud jys exemption from arrest for alleged con ection therewith and proceeded to address he senate upon it at some length He said he crime of Dudley had inflicted an in delible stain on the election of 1S33 and im peached the iiitegrity of thu political result hat followed Tho crime was practically Confessed yet tho benificiary of a polluted allot box now iu high place had felt com piled to shield tho corrupt implement of that success from the penalties due to such notorious guilt Voorhees sent to tho clerks desk to bo read the celebrated blocks of Ive letter imputed to Dudley Tlic President Attacked He said that the days and weeks that fol lowed tho publication of this letter would always be remembered for tho rapidity au dacity and fecundity with which the most selfevident falsjhnods were conceived and put forth by the llapuMcan press to avert tho odium and escape the penalises an organized attempt at wholesale bribery Voorhees spoke of Dudley as tho personal representative of Benjamin Harrison on the national Republican committee He said that after the publication Quay went to Ir dianapolis to see those who held the fate oJ tho Republican party in the hollow of their feands and that it was very natural to as sume that when ho called on President Har rison there it was to secure for Dudley im munity from prosecution Otiay Snys It Is Not True Quay who had not taken his eyes from Voorhees during his speech hero arose and said I state to tli3 senator from Indiana that it is not true that in Indianapolis I con ferred with those who had tho Republican party in tho hollow of their baud or con ferred with any one in regard to the case of Mr Dudley Judge mill Attorney Criticised Voorhcesi criticised very severely the part which Judge Voois was said to have taken in preventing the finding of a bill of indict ment against Dudley Ho said lie desired to know whether tho action of District Attor ney Chambers in ordering a Uuitod States coinmiscioner not to issuo n warrant for Dudleys arrest was authorized by tho attor ney general and ho would like tc knosv also what right the district attorney had to issue such an order Ho thought Chambers should bo dismissed and that this was tho best op portunity the president would ever have of disavowing his sympathy with Dudleys crime Eiluiunils Up the Iiglit Edmunds offeree 1 a substitute for tho reso lution as follows That the attorney gener al be and hereby is instructed to inform the senate what instructions if any tho depart ment of justice has given to S H Chambers dis rict attorney for tho district oE Indiana on the subject of tho arrest of Vr W Dud ley and his exemption from arrest and by what authority of law any such instructions have been pivcu and tlint copios of all such correspondence bo transmitted to tha senate Edmunds said that if Dudley had cone all that ho was charged with ho had certainly committed if not LI crime against the United States a crime against that class of public morality which the senator from Indiana had so beautifully described Still it was possible that tho Dudley letter bad been forged or so altered as to make a morally innocent political letter appear a morally guilty one He referred to the Morey letter and said that he was glad the leaders tho Democratic party had apparently reformed Laughter iu the galleries Dudley Charged VVHU Skulking Voorhees asked why Dudley was skulking and hiding if tho letter was a forgery Edmunds replied that ho did not believe that Dudley was skulking anywhere Voorhees charged that every effort had been made to get Dudley within the limits of the stato of New York to prosecute his libel suits against the New York papers but with out success Edmunds said that in that case the defend ants were ho supposed entitled to a judg ment in their favor If Dudley had any li bel suits ha probably knew how to take care of them Edmunds continued that the letter if genuine was undoubtedly an offense against the laws of tho state of Indiana but where he asked had been tho Democratic district attorneys before the chaug e of ad ministration Miglit Have Beeu no Imitation Ho suggested that the Dudley letter might have been imitated of one which had beau out by Mr Whitaker of Martinsville Ind chairman of a Democratic county com mittee on Sept 7 1888 That letter which ho sent to tho desk to bo read was he said the twin of the Dudley letter He did not vouch for the letter but it was published in Tho Terre Hauto Express Edmunds spoke at length about the tallysheet frauds in In diana iu 1SSG and referred to the fact that placed S5atO of these claims on the list files for immediate considera tion BEFORE THE WAYS AND MEANS De GOTHAM ALABMED Startling
