that If Mr. McCairs mining stock was no

neither Mr.'james nor Mr. Ralney can find

both James and Ralney were voiced, the
objectors clatmlnug to express the views
of President Taft. There was no objection
to either of them personally, but It was
urged, especially against Ralney, that their
alleged extreme partianshlp would unfit
them for a Judicial investigation. '

administration in Panama canal matterB.
After the vote nominating the four re-,
publicans had been taken, ' resulting In
practically unanimous approval, a separate
vote was ordered on the democratic mem
bers of the committee. At thffi juncture
Mr. Cooper arose and declared that he was
authorized by a number of his colleagues
to fcay that they were opposed to naming
the democratic members of a committee In
a republican caucus. :(.
Cooper Make Ttaem Laug-n.
"It would b harmful to the 'republican
party to do so," declared Mr. CoSper. "Who
Is afraid V He constantly repeated.1 "Who
Is afraid that harm will come to us from
James and Ralney? With all their haran
gues have they ever been able to hurt the
rcyu' 'can party or any member of the
republican party? What chance have they
against men like Root or Olmsted or Me
Call? Let 'em stay on the committee; they
can't hurt us." .
Mr. Cooper constantly caused 'laughter by
repeated inadvertant allusions : to Ollle
James as "Jesse" James. When corrected,
he said he had got the name of the fa
mous outlaw in his mind through reading
ons of his law cases today and 'meant no
reflection upon Representative James,, but
tho laughter was i.proarous, when In mak
ing this explanation he said he meant no
reflection on "Jesse" James.'
The strongest partisan speech was that of
J. Sloat Fassett of New York, ' who ad
jured tha republican' to name the- whole

"This is a republican cleaning." said Mr,
Fassett, "and tha democrats bave nothing

Lining Up for
Liquor Sealers and ' Anti-Saloon
Forces Squaring Away in
J South Dakota. .
PIERRE, 8. D., Jan. 20. (Speclal.)-The
liquor dealers association on the one side
and the prohibition forces on the other
are lining Up for a warm campaign on
the question Of county local option again
this year. While the local optlonista were
defeated" by'."u few thousand, votes last
year; they have not given up, but will push
the fighting all along the line this year.
They believe that by the proper campaign
ing they can more than overcome the lead
which the anti-option people showed up
two years ago. , ,
While the liquor dealers are actively at
work along certain lines, it Is claimed that
tbey will not get actively Into the field
until afU-r the city and town elections are
held in. April. . At these elections the
license question must be voted on in all
towns where saloons are strongly enough
desired to bring the question to an Issue,
and they do not desire to push anything
which might cause confusion of the ques
tion. Their work up to that time appears
to be along the. line of seeing that the re
tall dealers thetyselves remain good and
show a proper observance .of existing
liquor laws of the state. They are forming
organizations in many of the cities of the
state and are employing counsel to act
with these organizations where the retail
ers do not Beem to observe the law as It
stands, and will push such cases themselves
and not wait for the prohibition element
