are democrats, said thi y were present i'l

but Isley held out for the democratic can
didate, Stelnger.
To reporters, .Mr. Kisley said he would
testify as to common gossip at Spring
field that democratic votes were being
sought with money In behalf of the Lori
mer candidacy.
That States Attorney Burke of Sanga
mon county, of which Springfield is the
county seat, Intends to push an independent
inquiry Into the bribery charges was made
evident hero today.
Wayman Finds Witnesses.
"I have two democratic state repre
sentatives who will give Important evi
dence before the special grand Jury in
regard to the alleged bribery in the
election of William Lorimer as United
States senator," said States Attorney John
Wayman today on his return from a mys-
terons visit to St. Louis and the southern I
part of Illinois.
"These witnesses w ill appear before the I
grand Jury on Saturday and tell some Im
portant things about the election of Mr.
Iorlmer," continued Mr. Wajmart. "Iam
not at liberty to give, their names, but I
will say they are members of the state
legislature, whose names have not been
mentioned thus far in the Investigation.
Their identity will be a surprise.
"I brought no one back with me. I left
Murnane of my office In St. Louis to finish
up the work there. The two men In ques
tion will positively appear before tho jury
on Saturday.
"1 consider that my trip to St. Louis has
been highly successful. I have nothing
more to say."
Mr. Wayman disappeared after the grand
Jury session Monday and did not say where
he was going. It was not known here until
word came from St. Louis last night that
he was there. The grand Jury was in ses
sion only a short time and no evidence
was heard in the Lorimer case because of
Mr. Wayman's absence.
Mason's lleelaratlon.
"I believe thut M) per cent of the feats In
the I'nited States senate can be said prac
tically to have been purchased."
This statement was made today by former
I'nited Slates Senator William K. Mason
in the course of an interview' in which he
urged the election of United States sena
tors by direct vote of the people.
A morning paper quote Senator Mason
as sdylng that he had hfard tit Springfield
before the election of Mr. Lorimer that
the honor was for sale and that the sena
torial toga would go to tho highest bidder.
Mr. Mason, however, today denied that he
had made any such allegation.
Mr. Mason was n candidate for the sona-
toiship, but w ithdrew ills name before t tie I
last vote, when Mr. Lorimer was chosen.
At his office today, Slates Attorney Way
man said he expected fifteen state repre
sentatives and senators would appear be
fore the grand Jury before its sessions
were concluded.

Government to Install Station Here
to Handle Business.
Cities of loanlrr r"i ire .placed In
Instantaneous' Communication
with Head-of the Gov

Washington, U. C, is In Omaha with a
view to the establishment of a govern
ment wi"e!-ss station here to handle the
government business exclusively, except
such as pertains to the War department,
which has its own independent plant at
Fort Omaha.
Tho government departments to be
handled by the new station will be the
weather bureau. Naval and Postoffice; de
partments, thus eventually eliminating the
telegraph service now thus employed for
these departments.
The location of the new Omaha station
has not yet been decided upon, but it
will be a wholly independent concern, with
its own tower, cables and wires, which will
be connected with the federal building by
means of conduits.
Omaha m Central Station.
The Omaha station will be one of forty
seven stations to be utilized by the gov
ernment for this purpose, located at Wash
ington, D. C; Atlantic coast, gulf coast
and Pacific coast points, with a number of
Inland stations, four of which yet re
main to be built; one at El Paso, another
at Omaha, another at Denver and an
other at Los Angeles.
The electrical voltage will be sufficient
to prevent Interruption by any other wire
less system now In operation, and all sta-
I Hons will be in direct communication with
Washington. The remote stations will be
connected with Washington by relay sys
tems, but the Omaha station will be oper
ated without relays, either to the Pacific

station will be equipped with every ap
pliance of modern wireless telegraphy and
will be In charge of a chief and three as

NEW YORK, May 4 The illness of one

the government In its prosecution of
Charles R. Heik, secretary of the American
Sugar Refining company, whose trial on
sugar underwelghing conspiracy charges
is set for May 10. The supreme court In

over reports of tho condition of Richard

the fraudulent device by which the gov
ernment was deprived of duties on sugar
imports and whose testimony was expected
to play an important part in the trial of
Heik and other men indicted with him in
this connection. Parr Is threatened with
appendicitis and an operaton may be neces

appear, although it is said that since the
trial of tho last sugar underweighing cases
new evidence of an Important nature has
been discovered. Parr has played a prom

KANSAS CITY. May 4.-Mrs. Logan O.
Swope took 'the witness stand In the Hyde
murder trial today.
Standing room was at a greater premium
when the Hyde trial began this afternoon
than It had ever been before. The hundreds
of people who refused admission to the
court room stood In the hall ways, were
forced to form In a single file. The line
reached from tho entrance to the court
room down three flights of stairs and half
way around the criminal court building.
No emotion was shown by Mrs. Swope.
Dressed in a dark gown and wearing a
flowing black veil, she walked quickly to
the witness chair.
The defense made strenuous objection
to the witness telling about Dr. Hyd 's
courtship of her daughter .J udge Latshaw
overruled the objections, but the state did
not press the subject. Mrs. Swope simply
said she met Dr. Hyde a year and a half
before he, was married to Frances Hyde,
June 21, 19oD. Immediately after their
meeting, said the witness, the physician
began to call on her daughter.
Describing the premises at her home as
being In good condition, she said:
"There was no sickness In the house for
many years prior to September 190U."
On September 12, said Mrs. Swope, Dr.
Hyde first talked about Colonel Swope'a
sald the witness, speaking of Dr.
Hyde, "came to Mr. Hunton and myself.
