   Burlington Hawk-Eye (Newspaper) - January 9, 1890, Burlington, Iowa                                THE BUBLIN t HAwEliiir ESTABLISHED THUBSDAY JAtfUAKlf Pftjcx if Cum 700RHEES DUDLEY BHOLDuOI CiBSES IDCR ADVERSE Charges and CounterCharges of Fraud Edmunds SarcasticThe fiouw for tbe Worlds the senate VorheeB called up the resolution offered by him yesterday in relation to the al legcd interference by United States district attorney of to prevent the arrest of on the charge of violation of the elec tion lawu of Indiana and proceeded to address ihe He spoke of the crime of having inflicted an indellible Etain on a memorable election and im peached the intergity of the political re sult followed The facl of the crime wae universally known and practically confessed by its by constant vigilance in obstructing the and in denyine and preventing the crime thus far has gone un The beneficiary of the pol luted ballot now in high had felt compelled to shield the instru ment of that success from penalties due tuch notorious guilt VorheeB sent to the clerks deek and had read the no torious BlockeofFive He went on to say that the days and weeks immediately following the publication of that polluted and polluting campaign document would always be remembered for the audacity and fecundity with which the most self evident false hood was conceived and put forth by tbe republican press to avoid to odium and escape the legal penalties of an organized attempt al wholesale Thie emanating officially from the national republican had pointed he that an ample cor ruption fund waa ready in hand and gave excellent directions for its use by agents selected for their skill in such lie spoke of Dudley as the immediate personal representative in national re publican committee cf Benjamin Harri then candidate for the presidency nnd now president of the United He had lionn put on that committee at tho earnest request cf and be tween them were personal and nonfiden lial relations They had been political Siamese twins in the state of the scheme of bribnry nnd corruption was exposed on the yist of as far and fast as lightning cRTicd Ihe shameful was it to be supposed that Dudley was left without instructions and Sen ator chairman of the national re publican committee and senator from the stale of arrived at Indian had repeated conferences with those who held the fate of Dudley and tbe interests of the republican party in the hollow of thoir Mr it is not true in I conferred with those who held the republican party in the hollow of Itioir or conferred with any one in regard to Dudleys Mr the senator deny that bo called on Presidentelect Harrison in called on Presidentelect senator will not blame me if I draw the inference that he wanted the prosecution of Dudley and he went to Indianapolis to see him and he did say certain things in n quarter where it would do the most good ntul with an emphasis which was not foreotton Voorhoes wenl on lo speak of Dudleyn threats to use dynamite which he had in his in case an attempt wae made to inflict punishment upon and also criticised severely the part which Judge Woods wae represented as taking in preventing the finding of a bill of indictment against In view of tho injustice and open out rage inflicted on the people of Indiana in the name and by the authority of the republican national committee aided and abetted by the action of the federal court it would not seem strange ai a representative of that insulted people he should like to know by whose instruc tions and by what authority of responsible law officer of Ihe gov ernment in Indianapolis felt him self warranted a few weeks ago in ordering the United States commissioner not to issue a warrant for Dudleys arrest when he ventured to re turn lo Indianapolis for the first lime in more than a In behalf of the peo ple of Indiana he desired the attorney general of ihe United States to inform tho senate whether the action of his official subordinate was inspired by his instructions or now met with his ap proval No better opportunity could present itself to President Harrison than was now presented to definn his con nection with Dudley and with Dudleys In conclusion Voorhees declared the bribetakers and all the the endorsers of bribery should be re garded as pirates and enemies of the human Edmunds offered an amendment for the preamble and as to strike out the preamble and make it read That the attorney general be and hereby is instructed to inform the senate what if the de partment of justice has given District Attorney Chambers for the district of Indianapolis on the subject of the arrest of or his redemption from and by what authority of law any such instructions had been given that copies of all such correspondence be transmitted to the He expressed sarcastically his admiration and con ourrence in the beautiful tribute of the senator from Indiana to the value of political He also gave his ad hesioa to Voorhees denunciation of po lltical If Dudley had done the thing imputed to he had certainly committed if not a crime the United States a crime against that class of public morality which the senator had so beautifully described and which as he said was co essential to the safety and perpetuity of republican in It might have been fortery There were instances of forgeries about the time of presidentia as the Morey But he was glad the leaders of the demo cratic party had apparently reformed and that now at least on the anniversary of the battle of New Orleans there aome evidence of allegiance toiheprin ciplesofthe only real democrat he had ever heard Voorheesjif the Dudley letter is a forgery whyJFlt lie has not brought libel rota agaSsl the New York papers to trial e Mr Dudley
