Senator Cockrell (dem., Ma) then offered »n amendment directing the commissioner to discover if the sugar trust made a contribution for campaign purposes, and Senator Lodge accepted it Senator Hansborough (re]»., N.

The RMDlntlon FWWMU Senators Harris (dem., Tenn.) and Allen (pop., Neb.) then spoke a good word for Senator Kyle, who Is out of town, and said that if here he would favor the resolution. Senator Faulkner (dem., VV. Va.) then came to the front with a dragnet amendment, which, after a little talk, was put into a resolution. Senator Palmer (dem., 111.) suggested that Senators Hunton and Kyle be spared from the dragnet amendment and their case investigated alone, and Senator Hale (rep., Me.) followed in the same strain. Then Senator Allen came to the fron* and offered an amendment to investigate charges of speculating in sugar stock* by senators. This exhausted the suggestion and the resolution, now- being in satisfactory shape, passed. The Canomlttfl*. The committee agreed upon to investigate the charges of bribery and matters in connection with the sujfar trort in as follows: Democrats—Gray (Del), Lindsay (Ky.); republicans—Lod(* (Mass.) and Davis (Minn); populist— Allen (Keb.).
