Thursday's vote at the joint session
was 04. 74. 53,—the Independents voting
for Alvin Markle. of Lnzerne county
At the regnlar morning conference
the anti-Qnay Republicans unanimou-ly
indorsed the appended letter, which
was signed by Senator William Flinn.
chairman of the anti-Qnay steering
committee. The lettei was delivered
by Senator Flinn in person to Senator
John C. Uradv, who was chairman of
THE caucus which nominated MR QUAY
as his own successor. The letter to
Senator Grady says:
"Those Republican members of the
Legislature who are now opposing the
election of M. S. Quay to the United
States Senate hereby suggest that a
committee of .conference be named on
the part of those voting for Mr. Quay.
to confer with a like committee on the
part of those opposing him, with a view
of adjusting factional differences and
the election of a Senator. An early
reply will oblige. "
The managers of Senator QUAY S fight
beld a conference that night, after
which Senator Grady, in person, de
livered to Senator Flinn the following
"I am in receipt to-day of your com
munication suggesting 'that a com
mitte of conference be named on the
part cf those voting for M. S. Quay to
confer with a like committee on the
part of those opposing him. The join*
caucus held in January last, which has
now passed into the domain of legisla
tive history, did not, AS chairman,
clothe me with authority to appoint a
conference committee, but as the pro
position submitted by you may have an
important bearing upon the matter, it
should be brought to the attention of
those now voting foi the caucus nominee
of the Republican party, so I feel it my
duty to at once issue a call for a meeting
to be held on Monday evening next. I
should have called it sooner had not
many members left the city before your
letter was received."
Rumors of an extra session, should
the legislature adjourn without electing
• United States-Senator, were in the air.
Friday 's vote was 86, 60. and 50— the
Independents voting for Calvin Wells,
of Allegheny, who is interested in iron
works in Pittsburg and vicinity, and
also owns the "Phil'a Press. ''
Saturday's vott was Quay 6, Jenks
and Wells 2—no quorum.
Three conferences were appointed
Monday night, one of Quayites in gen
eral, one of ultra-Quayites, and one a
general conference of all Republican
members to consider the situation. The
hours fixed were 7:30, 10:00, and 10:30
P. M. The Governor vetoed the Legis
lative Commission, Wife's Testimony
and Banking bills.
The Senate, on Saturday, did business
with only five members present.
On Monday both branches of the
Legislature disposed of a number of
bills, and resolved to remain in session
almost continuously, until Thursday
noon, the time fixed for adjournment
The vote of the joint session that day
was Quay 30, Jenks 38, and Wells 8.
At the evening session of the House
the reports of the bribery Investigating
Committee was read. The majority
report is very lengthy, reciting the
evidence taken, and recommends the
criminal prosecution in the courts of
Dauphin county of Representatives
Charles 11. Spatz, of Berks; Wellington
H. Roseriberry, of Montgomery , ex Sen
ator John J. Coyle, Michael J. Costello,
Frank B. Jones and Robert Evans, of
Philadelphia: Parker H. Titns, of Eas
ton; ex-Representative Thomas .'1
Movies, of Laurel Run;ex-Congressman
Monroe H. Kulp, of Shainokin; ex-Rep
resentatiye John H. Byrne, of Everson,
all of whom are accused of attempting
to bribe, and censures Robert P.
Harder, assistant postmaster of Dan
ville, for his efforts to persuade Rep
resentative James Foster, of Montour,
to enter the Republican Senatorial
caucus. The minority report recom
mends that the testimony against all
these persons, except Messrs. Harder
and Rosenberry, be referred to the
courts for whatever action may be
regarded as proper.
The Quayites held a conference in
the Supreme Court room in Harrisburg,
Monday evening. Senator Grady pre
sided, and read Senator Flinn's letter
asking for a joint conference, and also
one from Senator Quay, reading as
"My Dear Sir—Referring to your
message, just now received, permit me
to say:
"First A vacancy in the Senatorship
has existed since March 4. The State
has not perceptibly suffered in the
meantime and is not likely to suffer
until the affair is determined.
"Second— Pending the proceedings in
Philadelphia it would be most unfortu

change position. They might as well
come here and go upon the witness

The Qtia> Trial.
The proceedings of Thursday were
tedious, but nevertheless interesting in
their bearing upon the fntnre of the
case District Attorney Rothermel
• placed upon the stand the paving teller, j
j receiving teller and bookkeepers o? the j
' defunct People's Kink to prove the
| books. All of these, in answer to qnes
; tiocs, made reference to Senator Quay s
i account, and the bookkeepers said they
i bad entered the figures, but none of the
books were opened to show what the
j nature of the account was. This wa?
done later All of the bank ern
i ploves, on cross-examination, stated
I that they had never seen Senator Quav -
I deposit book, and they did not believe
| there was one. It has been hinted that
the defense will claim that Senator
j Quay's acconnt was fictitious, as far as
he was concerned and that the Sena
tor's name was used by Hopkins a- a
cloak for his own personal transactions.
The ' red book was a big feature of
the day's proceedings, figuring indirect
ly in the testimony of several witnesses.
It's pages were gone over repeatedly
and the question of its identification
with the business of the bank was dis
cussed, and when court adjourned a
handwriting expert was on the stand
identifying the writing in it as the work
of Hopkins.
All of this was accomplished by the
district attorney in spite of the protests
of the three acute, aggressive lawyers
> employed by Senator Quay, who fought
in vain against the web of circumstan
' tial evidence, involving the "red book
to such an extent that it seems almost
certain that this necessary piece of evi
dence will have to be admitted after all.
It was evident from the district at
torney s attitude that he proposed
to formally offer the book in evidence
in a day or two and he ap(>ears confi
dent of his ability to introduce the testi
mony which its pages contain, and
which is so vital in the establishment of
the charge of conspiracy between Quay.
Haywood and Hopkins to use the money
of the State for illicit gaiu. -A* the lat
ter two are dead, only Senator Quay re
mains to face the charge.
Friday's session was one long fight for
and against the admission of the Red
Book". It was an unequal struggle •
one man against three. Three of the
foremost members of the bar of the
State oppose him—David T Watson,
master of legal argument, logical, ener
getic and clearheaded. Rufus E. Shap
ley, keen as a whip lash: A. S L. Shields
unequaled in cross-examination and
and force personified. Yet, Mr. R oth
ermel seemed actually in better condi
tion than on the opening day of the
After Mr. Rothermel's offer of the
•■Red Book," the chief argument was
upon allowing Meyer Goldsmith, the ex
pert accountant of the Commonwealth,
to testify that it was a book of the bank.
Before starting his examination. Mr.
Rothermel read to the Court a state
ment of what he intended to prove.
The expert, he said, had made a
thorough examination of all the books
in the case. He found that previous to
April 30, 1891, the Peoples Bank paid
interest on the State deposits to the
State Treasurer, and that records of
such payments were kept in a regnlar
way on the books of the bank. After
April 30, 1891. when Mr. Hopkins ap
peared on the scene, a new system was
adopted. This entailed the addition of
another book —now known as the "Red
Book' —to the books heretofore kept by
the bank.
During the whole course of Expert
Goldsmith's examination, objection
after objection was made by the defense,
and as frequently overruled by Judge
Biddle, while the District Attorney, in
logical sequence, drew from the witness
his conclusion as to the book, based
upon a comparison of what was written
on its pages with what appeared in the
other books.
The defense contended that the wit
ness was not competent so to testify be
cause be had never seen the book before
he was employed as an expert, because
the book was marked "John S. Hop
kins," and because nowhere in the ' Red
Book" was there a -ingle figure refer
ring to any of the transactions in the
bank books already admitted. But
the District Attorney won, the court
holding with him that Goldsmith could
testify as an expert accountant that the
"Red Book made certain otherwise
unintelligible things in the bank books
intelligible to him, and was, therefore,
necessarily a book of the bank. Not
only did the District Attorney win this
point, but he may have caught his alert
opponents in a trap, and it is possible
that he may g'-t the "Red Book" befori
the jury before Judge Biddle makes his
decision on its ad mission
i It came about this waj : During the
1 cross-examination of Mr. Goldsmith by
Mr. Shields, the latter asked "Is there
. a single line in the 'Red Book' that
i refers to the bank !>ooks?"
"The figures *1,519, and within a
" circle, 'Paid 11, 4, '97, by cashier's
check.' " answered the witness,
t A little later Mr. Shields asked, "Are
' there any other items other than the
' *1.519 that correspond with the books
i of the bank?"
"Yes, sir, there is an item of $5,352.10.
It is in the 'Red Book and it is in the
, cash book of the bank.
[ At the end of the cross-examination
i Mr. Rothermel sprang his surprise on
the defense and claimed his right to
cross examine the witneas in his turn on
the contents of the "Red Book' becau-e
the defense had opened the door by
J bringing out certain figures contained
"One is enough," he argued. 'lf
r they are entitled to examine thewitness
1 tijion any figures contained in this book,
i lam entitled to cross-examine him on
• the contents
' "That is enough." said Judge Biddle
The defense was thunderstruck. Mr.
Shields hastened to point out that, the
t witness had been expressly instructed
not to disclose the contents of the book.
Mr. Shapley followed him in the same
r line. They had simply been cross
< xamining the witnem on what he based
his opinion that the "Red Book" was a
t book of the bank, and not upon the
n contents
Mr. Watson endeavored tocompromise
1 UJSJU limiting the District Attorney to
1 cross-examining the witness on specific
- items in the "Rod Book" and not on the
* contents generally. All were excited
, and voluable. All were on their feet at
the same time. But Mr. Itothermal
' | held firm. The door was opened for
J j cross-examination on the contents he
inaintained. The Court agreed with
■ j him, but it was 3 o'clock before any
" j thing more could be asked of the wit
ness or the record examined to see what
I Mr. Goldsmith and Mr. Shields had
. I really said
| The defense, in the cross-examination
of Mr, Goldsmith conducted by Mr.
e 1 Shields, brought out the facts that two
k of the accounts in the 1,000 and over in
n the Peoples Bank l»ooks were incom
plete without ihi, "Ped ISook, that the
entries in the "Red Book hiu] )>ee»i

from the bank t, which contained the,
information necessary to a complete
understanding of the two alleged in
complete accounts then the "Red
Book' would not lie a book of the bank.
Daring all the examination touching j
ai>on the book, with the exception of
the two items mentioned, no intimation
of the amounts or names was allowed;
to reach the jury. The prosecution all
along however, has alleged that this (
book will show that Cashier Hopkins :
