Messrs. Kyle and Hunton Admit That Attempts Were Made to Buy Their Votes on the Tariff Bill. HESOI.VT10K Ff>!'. AN INQVIKY. WASHINGTON, May 10. —In the senate) Senator IxxJfre (rep.. Mass.) offered a resolution reciting a statement in- a New York pupor i.hat bribes hare bcuu offered, to oort.'iin M»n:ilors to induce them tn vote against the ponding tariff bill, and a signed article in a Philadelphia paper stating' that the sugar schedule has been made up in consideration of a large sum of money paid for campaign purposes of the democratic party, and moved for tho appointment of :i committee of fire senators to investigate those charge* Under the rule the resolution went over for one day. fc<rni«or IIuDton'i. AdmliHlon. Senator Hunton, of Virginia, and Senator Kyle, of South Dakota, admitted the truth of the published statement that they had been approached and offered money for thoir votes against the tariff bill, although both gentlemen declined to name the man who made the offer. The story was published in full in a New York paper, and, with, tlic exception of a matter of detail. IB substantially correct. "Yes," said Senator Ilunton, "the story is correct, although I am sorry that it haa been made public. It happened more than a month ago, and I immediately notified the managers of the bill on the floor ol the senate and it is in their hands for such action ns they may see fit to take. The offer was not made to me personally, but through my son, the sum to b« paid being Bxed at 838,000 by the man who attempted the bribe. No, I can* not give the name of the man who sought to get my vote " Kyle Wa» Sbrewd. Senator Kyle, it appears, was a littla too shrewd for the would-be briber, and when he was approached said! "You should not approach a senator upon such a "matter; see my 3lerk." The clerk was then notified how to conduct the business and it was so arranged, it is said, that the Urtbcr made his offer to Senator Kyle, through his clerk, in the presence of a witness. Twenty-Hire thousand dollars was the sum named in both cases, although, according to the statement of those who knew the facts, the man admitted that the parties behind him had 81,000,000 they would spend if necessary to defeat the- bill. .. Hint* at tbe Ilrlber'* Nam*. Senator Kyle Is out of the city, bat Senator Ilunton said he knew that the same man had approached him, and thU was corroborated by Mr. McFai* lane, Senator Kyle's clerk. Senator Hunton went so far as to gay that the man who had attempted to conduct the negotia* tions for these Totes was formerly connected with Vhe carpet-bag government of South Carolina, and that he had sub? sequent) y gone to North Dakota, when he resided for a number of years. Recently he said be had-been about the the capital in the role of lobbyist A prominent democratic senator said that he knew the man well, and named LX W. Buttz, an ex-member of congress from South Carolina during the period of reconstruction, as one who could, if he would, shed light on the matter. This man, who stands charged with the commission of this offense, bai been about tbe capital for some tiro* but it is not known thit any senators other than those named have been approached. Mr. Buttz resided originally in Virginia, where, as a democrat, he filled various offices, but subae- quently removed to South Carolina. He served one term from that state. Republicans claim that an investtffa- tion will show that the attempt haa been made to make a sensation for the purpose of producing an effect on tbe senate in tho direction of a speedy paa- aure of the bill.
