Mr. Aldnch eald the senate hadn t
waited, and he cited the Elkits law
to show that it had done something.
But he had to admit that neither
the Elkins law nor the Hepburn

The senate, like a political bosp, or.-

Mr. Aldnch objects to .tnat view.
He met it by citing his own case.
He referred to the charge that be
represented Standard Oil, and he
didn't deny it; he said that be nev

ceived insttuctions from them.
No," I answered, "and if I were
they, I'd ne-yer send for you or offer
to send you instructions. That
wouldn't seem necessary. If I bad
a man like you here representing

Senator Aldrich was n street rial
