STORY IS NOT CONFIRMED Senate Devotes a Whole Day to Dis cussion of Illinois Senator’s Case. Washington.—In the cloaff rooms of the senate Friday there was much discussion of a persistent rumor that Senator Lorimer might resign before the new inquiry is actually author ized. to protect his friends from the attacks of those seeking to unseat him. Neither his colleague. Senator Cullom. nor any of the members of the Illinois delegation in the house, would admit they had any knowledge of such an intention on the part of Mr. Lorimer. Alter devoting practically the wnole session to the discussion of the pro posed reinvestigation of the election of Senator Lorimer. the senate ad journed without action, determined to jJFbceed again with the question at its nest sitting Monday. Senator La Follette concluded his fourday speech and announced that when the voting stage is reached he will so change his resolution as to provide that the senate shall elect an investigating committee of five from among the new senators. Senator Borah supported the La Follette pro position. and Senators Bailey and Dillingham opposed it. Mr. La Follette said he had been in fluenced to introduce his resolution for special committee on inquiry fol | lowing the Illinois investigation. New I investigators had been provided for j | because he believed that the question j should go to a committee not handi-, j capped by a previous decision. The next investigating committee, j | he felt, must have the confidence of the people, which he did not believe the old standing committee on privi leges and elections would have. The public, he said, would consider the old committee packed from the beginning, even as has been charged in connec tion with the Illinois juries in prose cutions growing out of the case. ■> Mr. La Follette said if he ^?r$'a member of the old committee he would not consent to serve on the I new one, because he would not feel capable of an impartial verdict. Mr. Bailey said that all the demo cratic senators desired a new investi gation. he himself favoring it, be cause of the discovery of new evi dence. He said the public sentiment ] against Mr. Lorimer was not well in formed, because it hed been shaped by newspaper expression rather than by reading of the testimony. Saying there had -been no investiga tion by a special committee on an election case since the creation of the committee on privileges and elections in 1871. Chairman Dillingham, of that committee, expressed confidence that if the investigation should be placed in its hands it would present such a i report as would command the respect of the senate and of the country. Senator Borah advocated a special committee in the interest of disinter estedness. Congress May Control Levees.

New York.—When Head Keeper Billy Snyder of the Central Park *oo went into the pen of Hattie, the trick elephant, with her breakfast and was not greeted by the usual little squeal of welcome he knew something was wrong. Then he noticed that her head was hanging and her trunk drag ging listlessly on the ground, and when she answered his greeting mere ly by a lack luster glance his mind Coughs Up the Dope. was made up at once. "Clover colic," Snyder answered to Dirctor John M. Smith. "Poor old Hattie’s got it and Is swelled up like a dirigible. I gave her a bale of fresh clover yesterday. She needs medicine.” Snyder looked into his prescription book and pretty soon decided that the proper thing for Hattie's insides was a dainty little mixture of one-half gallon of linseed oil. two qunees of laudanum and two quarts of spirftus frumenti, the last being, according to Mr. Snyder, just plain whisky. But Hattie doesn't like boose. So they had to chain her feet and hoist her heaf'with a block and tackle and when she opened her mouth for a wisp of hay Snyder poured the mixture down her throat. Hattie coughed once when the mix ture was half way down, and, in the words of the song. "The blow almost killed Billy.’* for he received about a pint of the mixture in his eyes and was blown clear off the barrel on which he was standing, but outside of this Hattie gave no trouble. Hattie swallowed enough, however, to chase away the colic caused from clover, and about an hour later was going through her tricks with Billy Snyder for the children as if nothing out of the ordinary had happened.

LAST WITH A BUSINESS MAN Had Driven Hunter to the Country— One Theory Is That He Was Shot by Mistake After Seeking Squir rels’ Ne6t in the Tree. Tulsa. Okla.—Mystery was added to the unexplained absence of Daniel C. Bonner, a hackman of this city, when his body was found in a tree suspended by one foot and with three bullet holes in his face and head. The foot was firmly wedged between branches, where they fork, and his head was hanging downward. The last seen of Bonner in Tulsa was two months ago, when a man who announced he was a capitalist from Missouri engaged him to drive into the country OB'a hunting trip. The authorities have this man's name and are making inquiries about him. Bonner had no family and was of a roving disposition, so little attention was paid to his absence. It attracted only passing comment and had been nearly forgotten when the body was found. From the condition of the body it had evidently been hanging from the tree ail this time. In the tree was the nest of a squir rel. It is supposed Bonner climbed Found Hanging in a Tree. the tree to inspect the nest and lr coming down slipped and with one foot caught in the forks of a limb, hung head downward. A careful investigation of the vi cinlty shows that the hunter for whom he was driving might have been ap proaching this tree from any one ol several different directions where a glimpse through the trees would show him Bonner's head but not bis body. Men who went to the scene clr cled around the tree and found eev eral places where such a view might be had. At a distance of 50 or 75 yards it can be easily understood that a hunt er seeing some strange object hang ing from a limb of a tree would fire Even if he were thinking of his com panion he would not expect to see him hanging head downward from a tree. Bonner had been shot twice in tht head and once In the jaw. The theory of those who have been working on the case is that the Missourian when he found he had shot his driver walked back to a railroad station and left the country- The man supposed to have done the shooting is a busi ness man of considerable property who was here looking after some in vestments. Any robbery theory that might sug gest itself is disposed of by the rela tive financial condition of the two men. The hackman had nothing, while the Missourian had plenty ol money. Bonner's team was found in posses slon of a farmer near by. The farmer said two men came to his place and left the team, saying they would be back in a few hours. They never came, and the farmer has been using the team in putting in his crop. The authorftles have not considered arresting the Missouri man. but he win be asked to make a statement of the affair. On account of his stand ing and the absence of any ground for suspecting the shooting to be pre meditated. the coroner and sheriff have declined to giTe the name of the Missourian. There was no acquaint ance between the men prior to the time Bonner was hired to take the hunter out into the country. Rescues Woman Prom Well. Oriska. N. D.—To save Miss Marie Smith from death H. R. Olson was lowered head downward into a well 22 feet deep and only 18 inches in di ameter and pulled up after he had hold of the woman.
