W ASHINGTON, Feb 20 the secret ees- non of the senate the question of the secrecy of the secret session was debated at length Tuesday Senator Dolph called the attention of the senate to the fact that cer- tain newspapers published most elaborate reports of the proceedings of the senate in secret session, and that the press tlons covered very fully each evening al the business transacted by the senate be- hind closed doors during the afternoon He was in favor of a sweeping investigation. The matter was postponed until yesterday, when it was again discussed.
