The Senate has about deter mined -to investigate wicked newspaper men who insist upon publishing to the world the of the executive session. The matter was under discussion for some time Mon- day and the old question of the ad- Tisability of opening the doors during the discussion of nominations was de- bated at length. During the discussion. Mr. Teller urged upon the Senate the advisability of adopting his proposition to open the doors, submitted during thft special session last April. II the Senate entrusts the investiga- tion of the betrayal of secret session news to a special committee it will get yery little satisfaction. This thing has been done before and the Senate had the melancholy pleasure of imprisoning two newspaper correspondents in a Senate committei room for contempt, and of re- leasing them finally without learning the source of their information.

Against tbe Civil Service Com- mlMton. Altered that the ConuniMioMn Guilty of Somber of Utefml Acts Wfclch are FftTorltiMB. wttk Departmental OflMaU W la of the "JBectt ELECTRIC DANGERS. Tell Abo.t the ratal een made in violation of tho "merit and favorites have secured places with little reference to thjjir qualifications; that relatives of offioirs of the commission have been attached ;o the commission, gaining a knowledge of the secrets of the commision, hand- ling the records of the privilege denied Senators and Repre- compensation .tji'i. in direct violation of the law. Dr. Nagle, of the Bureau of Vital Sta- .tiaticft, also produced a list of the deaths from electric shocks reported to the health board. Witness was questioned by Mr. Gibbons, who appeared for cer- tain members of the Board of Electrical Control, ,and whom the committee gave the privilege of asking a few questions as a witness, hut refusing him the privi- lege as counsel. He testified at consid- erable length with regard to high and low tension currents. A high tension current would kill a man, he said, much more quickly than a low tension, but the latter might cause more torture and cause death just as surely. He thought it more painful to be burned by a low tension than killed immediately by a high tension. Low tension currents in his opinion were just as dangerous to property as high ones. He referred to a recentcase where some property was destroyed by fire caused by a low tension current, to sub- stantiate his statement. Improper con- struction and improper insulation were the causes.______________ CHANDL.ER AND CAIX that therao- dc- in time. ibo yeas maA There The American Association Arranges Its Dttes for the Cowing Season.
