Abstract

Green, Cornell & Lowrey in Washn for Senate vote on RR teleg bill. "Green said today, there was a time when they might have given me something for the purpose of controlling you as they though I had some influence with you, but since they have got you so firmly bound that you cannot get away from them, they would not give me a farthing---He further said that they were not even using your Quadruplex they having wholly superceded it--who is their genius now?"
