thorough Investigation, and Lodge de
clared congressional Investigations
wero clumsy nnd worthless. Clay ag
gresalvoly charged Perry Heath, with
being largoly responsible for corrup
tion In tho dopartment. Ho said, "why
are tho subordinates indicted, but the
principals allowed to escape?" He
shook tho Brlotow roport aloft and
said: "If this is truth, Perry Heath, in
his office, originated tho postal
frauds from beginning to end. If ho
Is slandered wo' want to know It. If
ho is guilty, ho ought to bo puntshod."

by him In an oratorical flight In tho

board standing out nt right angles from
his face, tho speaker filled out a check
for a comfortable sum, thon turned
tho paper ovor and wrote:
"This check is in full paymont
both legal and moral, for CO volumes
