DUDLEY THE NOTORIOUS ELECTION
CORRCPTIONIST. IS THE SUBJECT
OF A WARM DEBATE
BETWEEN V00EHEE3 AND EDMUNDS
Why Wm the Prosecution of Dudley
Suddenly Abandoned I the Ques-
tion Asked by Voorheea.
Washisgtok January 8. The pream-
ble of Senator Voorheea was laid on the ta
ble and a substitute was offered by Senator
Edmunds and adopted by a vote of 34 to 21
Senator Quay 1 state to tue senator from
Indiana that it is not true that Indianapolis
conferred with those who had the Repub-
lican party in the hollow of their hand or
conferred with any one in regard to the
case of Mr. Dudley.
Senator Voorhees The hands of those
with whom the senator consulted were
rather small it is true but to the extent
of their palms they did hold the Republican
party in their hands. Does the senator
deny that he called on the president-elect
Senator Quay I called on President-elect
Senator Voorhees Certainly you did.
The senator will not blame me if I draw
the big inference that he wanted the pros-
ecution of Dudley stopped and that he
went to Indianapolis to see him and that
he did say certain things in quarters where
it would do the most good and with an
emphasis which was not forgotten.
Senator Voorhees went on to speak of
Dudley's threats to use the dynamite which
he had in his pocket in case an attempt was
made to inllict punishment upon him and
also to criticise very severely the part which
Judge Woods was represented as taking in
preventing the finding of a bill of indict-
ment against Dudley. He spoke of Judge
Woods course as being conspicu-
ously shameful. In view of this in-
justice indicted upon the people of
Indiana in the nume and by the au-
thority of the Republican national commit-
tee (aiding and abetting by the action of
the Federal court) it would not seem
strange that a representative of the insulted
people should like to know by whose in-
structions and by what authority of law a
responsible law olllcer of the govarnment
in Indianapolis selected and appointed by
the administration felt himself warranted
a few weeks ago in ordering a United States
commissioner not to issue a warrant for
Dudley's arrest when he ventured to return
to Indianapolis for the llrst time in more
than a year characterizing at the same
time the Dudley letter as an honorable and
patriotic letter. In behalf of the people of
Indiana lie desired the attorney gen
eral of the United ' States to ill'
lorm the senate whether the action
of hisotlicial subordinate which interfered
with the United States commissioner was
inspired by bis instructions or met now
with his approval. Ho asserted that a dis
trict attorney of the United States had no
more legal right over the action of the
United Stutes commissioners in the issu-
ance of or the refusal to issue a warrant
tiiun ne Had over the appointment ot a
. unit n iiutiairu lu. aviiuu ui uu.u-
bers called for his dismissal. No better op
lortunity could be ottered to the president
man was now presented to dctine his posi-
tion regarding Dudley's crime. Benjamin
Harrison was president of the United States
and as such was called unon to spurn the
disgraceful action. In conclusion Senator
Voorhees declared that bribe takers and
endorsers of bribery should be regarded as
pirates anil enemies of the human nice.
beimtor julmunds o lereu an amendment
for the preamble and resolution so us to
strike out the preamble and make it read
"tiiat the attorney general be and is nerebv
instructed to inform the state what in
structions jt any the department of justice
uas given to n. is. uiiainuers uisinct attor-
ney for the district of Indiana on the sub
ject of the arrest of W. W. Dudley or his
exemption from arrest and by what author-
ity or low such instructions have been
given and that copies of all such corres-
pondence he transmitted to the senate.
lie expressed sarcastically lus admira
tion of und concurrence in the beautiful
tribute of the senator from Indiana to the
vulue of political morality. He also gave
liis adhesion to Senator Voorhees' de-
nunciation of political immorality.
If Mr. Dudley has done the thing imputed
to him he had certainly committed if not
a crime against the United Stutes. a crime
against that class of public morality which
uie senator nan so Deautiluuy aescrineil
and which as he said was so essential to
the safety and perpetuity of republican in-
stitutions. Still if that the so-called Dud
ley letter had been forged or been altered
so as to make an innocent political
letter appear to be a morullv
guilty one there were instances
of such political forgeries of about the time
of presidential elections such as the
Moray letter." But he was triad that the
leaders of the Democratic party had ap-
pui emiy runarmeu laugnter in ne galleries
ana mat now at least on the anniversary
oi uie oimie oi isow Urleans there was
some evidence in their allegiance to the
principles of real Democracy that they had
even heard of Uen. Jackson laughter..
Senator Voorhees If the Dudley letter is
not a forgery why is it that he has not
brought his libel suit against the New York
papers to a trial and why is it that he has
skulked and hid himselflinjexite for the past
iwBie inontus or merer
Mr. Edmunds I do not know that Mr.
Dudley is skulking or hiding himself anv
where and I do not believe it. I do not
know that he has anv libel suit pending in
New York. If he has I suppose" he knows
now to take care oi it.
Senator Voorhees I say herein the hear-
ing of the Now York nre and its agents
that every possible ell'ort has been made to
get Dudley in his own person in the state
ui orw iun 10 prosecute ins own libel
suits; that all such efforts have failed and
that Judge Lawrence the other dav denied
he motion of Dudley's lawyers because
Dudley he said had kept himself outside
ui mo minis oi tne state.
Senator Kdmunds Judire Lawrence niev
be right or mav be wromr: I don't know
but it Dudley has anv libel suits and does
not prosecute them tlie defendants are en
titled to have them dismissed. The letter
assuming it to be genuine was no offense
against the law of Indiana which provides
against attempts at bribing voters and this
letter of Mr. Dudley was no attempt
to corrupt voters. As far as the
majesty or the law in that
noble state is concerned where are the
Democratic district attorneys; why all this
long delay in bringing citizens of that state
to task for this crime against hisown native
landT In this connection Mr. Edmunds
dwelt on the failure of the Democratic
United States district attorney (before the
change of administration) to briag the mat-
ter to the attention of the grand jury.
Wasiiisutoh January 9. The vice pres
ident laid before the senate a communica-
tion from Attorney General Muller in re-
lonse to the resolution adopted by the
senate yesterday. The attorney general
states that no instructions verbal or oral
have been given to Attorney Chambers on
the subject of the arrest of W. W. Dudley.
"No communication" says the attorney
general "has been sent to the department

ana nor has anv been received from him

SIXTEEN LABORERS DROWNED AND
BURIED ALIVE IN A CAISSON
A SINGLE ONE ESCAPES.
Bla Story of the Accident and the Few
Minutes .Preceding- the Catastropne
LoDi8viiLE Ky. January 10. At 10:12
o'clock this morning the bodies of three of
the unfortunate victims of the caisson acci-
dent were recovered by the workmen. The
positions in wbich they were found showed
that a desperate struggle had taken place
at the narrow door of the escape. One
negro bad succeeded in pulling his body
through the aperture but death had over
taken him when life was promised.
Another negro had crawled partly
through. His hands were fastened in death
by clutching hold of the negro in front of
him showing that he had died in a des
perate endeavor to escape first. Between
the two negroes was the body of a white
man. It appeared from his position that
ne was trying to pusn uack some one who
was clinging to his legs. The sand accumu-
lating at the door bv the sudden sinning of
the caisson had wedged in the body of a
wii ne man in sucn a manner mat it could
not be removed.
At 10:30 a. m. work was discontinued in
order to allow the workmen to rest and re
fresh themselves. Later fresh force was
put on duty and the work resumed.
Abe Taylor one of the negro laborers
who survived the catastrophe was found
on Preston street by a reporter. He had
not entirely recovered from the fright inci
dent to nis late experience anu ho trem-
bled as he told what happened at the bot-
tom of the river.
"As near as I can remember" he said
"there were eighteen of us who went down.
Some of us had candles in our hands and
others carried the tools. We worked while
the engine was pumping air into the cais-
son. We were not thinking of danger and
did not have any idea that there was a
weak point in the caisson. We were talk
ing and running on with each other just as
we always do. Somebody said we should
be relieved in about two hours. I replied
that I wished it was now. I looked t see
how near the caisson was to the sand bot-
tom. I was standing close to the little door
wnen 1 heard somebody say 'Ureat Uod
she is breaking!'"
Just then the water commenced to rush
through the shell doors and it seemed as if
everything gave way at once. I broke for
the door. I hardly know how I did it but
I managed to get through. The men
behind me were rushing and tumbling over
eacn other and 1 could near them crying:
"We are lost! Help! My God I Save usT'
Badly frightened as I was I could not help
but pity them. I could do nothing for
them so I helped myself. I heard water
rushing in on the poor fellows as I climbed
up through the manhole but their cries
sounded louder upon the roar of water.
I got out safely and thanked
God for my delivery. I will never forget
that awtul sight as long as 1 live."
Taylor was asked if he thought that if by
any possible means the men could live un
til lielp reached them.
"No sir they could not. The water is
running in faster than all the engines can
force it out. There is not any way for them

was seen. He expressed the opinion that
some one was evidently to blame lor not
having the trap door in proper condition ;
also for the weakness of the caisson wbich
resulted in the leak. He declined to ex
press an opinion without reserve as he was
not in possession of all the facts but said
that accidents were rare notwithstanding
tne great apparent danger: that mere was
evidently gross negligence somewhere.
The time keener on dutv vesterdav after
noon said there was notling to be seen
from the outside that would indicate what
had taken place. There was no noise or
commotion and the first intimation we
had that an accident had occurred was
when the four men appeared at the steps
01 tne iocs anu snouted to tue engineer to
turn in more air to keep back the water.
The engine was set going at great speed
and a great quantity of air was forced into
the caisson and we could see the millions
of bubbles on the surface f the water.
which indicated that the air was not being
confined to the box. I don't know who is
to blame or what caused the accident. An
employe who had been sick for several
days but who is one ot the lock keepers
and who declined to give his name said
that he knew Knox was to blame that
Knox was reckless and under the influence
of liquor. The most plausible theory as to
the cause of the accident is thus given by
one of the survivors. Louis Crouch and his
story receives not a little credence
trom the superintendent ot the works
Knox the foreman had been seen near the
key wbich controls the air supply and it is
believed that he cut off the air more than
he really intended to causing the caisson
to sink -into the sand. Should the -re
mains of the first white man found prove to
be Knox the theory is strengthened as the
key which controls the air is only a short
distance from the lower or last trap and
Knox was the onlv. white man near t.
Robert Baldwin reported last night as
being among the dead and Louis Cox re-
ported this morning as being dead have
made their appearance. Only one body
has been recovered un to this hour. noon.
The other bodies in sight are wedged in the
manhole so that they cannot be removed

Some days ago the insurance commis

of injustice if not something more flagrant.
To meet this the officers of that company
are advertising that policy very extensively
in the ' press they refrain from advertis
ing the form of application which appli-
cants are required to sign and do not in

policy holders jior some years it has been
manifest to old policy holders that in the
competition between companies there has
