* In the face of Lorimer's repeatcc
protestations of innocence , Crawiorc
" "flatty charged that the latter was cog

; enough .about what was going onal
Springfield to put a reasonably rrn
dent man upon inquiry ; that Shurtlcfi
.and Urowne were hs political agents
f- and that he ratified their acts an-i
: ccpted the fruits of their corrupt prac

& , , Says Evidence Is Conclusive.
Senator Crawford begin by review
7ing' the testimony taken by the senate
t subcommittee of the committee on
privileges .and elections , which was
instructed to inquire into , charges
against "Lcrimer. v'
"The evidence , in his opinion , showed
conclusively that the election of Lor
imer was the outcome of a carefully
- laid plan , beginning with the election
of Edward Shurtleff , whom he de
scribed as a "bitter enemy of Senator
Plopkins and a political henchman of
Lorimer , ' ' to be speaker of the leglsla-
' tuf'e , and Lee O'Neil Browne fo he the
leadpr of the minority.
a "A game was being played , " said
. /-.Crawford , "in-which at the very begin-
; * - a.nlngtjall partx principle was ahan-
doped , the expression of the party
: * voted , at the primary was unceremoniously -
i ously disregarded and the control of.
J the house was seized by unscrupulous
> t and unprincipled men with dark
cchnmes to prpmote. "
fBribes Agents of Lorimer.
The senator said the evidence oL al-
legfid bribery proved "to his satisfac
tion that money was used in the gar
ngrfng of-.vote's for Lorimer. Shurtleft
andiJ3ro * wbe were the active agents in
the campaign of corruption , contended
.the senator , and he charged that Lor-
. imer was aware of what was transpir
"I wish I could believe that hu d ;
. not , " : he said , ' "because I bear hLn-no-
* ' '
ill will and would net do 'him the
smallest injury or injustice , knowing-
. ly. But I cannot overlook the fact
that for "days and nights immediately
preceding the 2Cth of May , 1909 , when
those corrupt and tainted votes were
cast for him , he was in Springfield di-
rr-cting his own campaign ; that he
* was in almost constant conference
with Lee O'Neill Browne and Speaker
Shurtlen and they reported progress
to him. "
Crawford concluded bywannouncing
that he stood ready to vote for a reso
lution to unseat Lorimer.

Millions of Lives
An Awful Toil Collected By
Consumption , Many Urv
necessary Deaths ,
If .people could only understand
that systemic catarrh is an internal
disease that external applications
cannot cure , they would not need
to be warned so often about this
malady , which , when neglected ,
paves the way oftentimes for con
sumption , at the cost of millions of
liyes every year. Yet catarrh may
be cured , if the right treatment is
The only way to successfuly
treat catarrh is by employing a
raedince which is absorbed and
carried by the blood to all parts of
the system , so that the mucous
membrane or internal lining of the
body is toned up and made capable
of resisting the infection of con
sumption and other diseases.
We have a remedy prepared
from the prescription of a physi-
cim who for thirty years studied
and made catarrh a specialty , and
whose record was a patient re
stored to health in every case
where his treatment was followed
as prescribed. That remedy is
Rexall Mucu-Tone. We are so
positive that it will overcome ca
tarrh in all its various forms ,
whether acute or chronic , that we
promise to return every penny
paid us for the medicine in every
case where it fails or for any
reason does not satisfy the user.
We want you to try Rexall
- on our
tion and guarantee. We are right
here where you live , and you do
not contract any obligation or
risk when .you try Rexall Mucu-
Tone on our guarantee. We have
Rexall Mucu-Tone in two sizes ,
50 cents and § 1.00. Very often
the taking of one 50-cent'bottle
is sufficient to make a marked 'im
pression upon the case. Of course
in chronic cases a longer treatment
is necessary. The average in such
instances is three § 1.00 bottles.
Remember you can obtain Rexali
Remedies in Valentine only at our
store The Rex-ill Store. Chip-
