house, of repreaentath en n Indicted on
a chart of bribery and representative
nobert E. Wllaon of Chicago and Repre
sentative Michael 8. Link of Mitchell, were
Indicted on chargei of perjury here today
by tha upectal grand Jury which, for a
week, hss been Investigating the election
on May 28. 1S09. of William I.orlmrr of
Chicago to the United Sta'ea aerate.
The charge upon which the Indictment
a ere returned In Judge KersterVs court as
aupplled by Representative Charles A.
White of O Fallon and Representative H.
i. C. Becknmeyer of Carlyle. Wilson and
IJnk aa well aa White and Beckemeyer
are democratic member of the legislature.
Specifically, the bribery charges against
Browne Is baaed on the charge that he gave
Repreaenlatlve While So0 In a hotl In
Chicago late In May, 1909, aa alleged com
pensation for While's vol for Lorlmer for
senator. The perjury charge against Link
la baaed on his testimony before the present
grand Jury. May 6. laat. In this testimony
Link la alleged to have aworn that he was
not In-St. Loula. Mo., July IS, 1909. and
lhat he did not there meet Representative.
Robert E. Wilson of Chicago. The grand
Jury declares that It finds upon Investi
gation that Link was In St. Louis on the
date and did meat Wllsnn.
The Jury further declares that' Link will
fully perjured himself after full realisation
of the value of his statements In the
St. I.oals Hotel Incident.
The perjury charge against Wilson la
based on his testimony given ' before the
members of the grand Jury May 6. The In
dictment alleges that Wilson testified that
he did not hand sums of money to Repre
sentative White and Representative Becke
meyer In the Southern hotel at St. Louis,
July 15, 190!. The grand Jury states in Its
Investigation that It finds that Wilson did
hand money to both White and Beckemeyer
In St. Louis on the date specified.
Immediately upon the return of the three
indictments Judg Kersten fixed Browne's
bail at $16,000,, that of Wilson at 1 6.000 and
that of Link at $5,000. Another indictment
not bearing upon the Lorlmer Investiga
tion, but in connection with another cass
of alleged legislative bribery, was returned
by the Jury against William J. Henley,
former president of the Chicago k Western
Indiana railroad. This Indictment charges
Henley with embezzlement of the railroad's
It Is a direct outcome of . charges made
by John C. Fetier, who declared that a
"slush fund" had been In the legislature to
secure the passage of railroad legislation.
The apeclflo bill was house, bill 777, validat
ing a 160.000,000 bond Issue made by the Chi
cago & Western Indiana railroad.
Fetzer said that a slush fund of $212,000
was distributed among legislators by agents
of the road. -
Following his indictment, Representative
Link was taken into , the private office of
state's Attorney Wayman. where he waa
closeted with the pubnc prosecutor for sev
eral hours. Slate s . Attorney wayman. It
is said, la trying to secure a confession
from Link that the prosecutor thinks will
strengthen the. testimony of White and
' Senaatlonnl Election.
The session, of the legislature that ele
vated Lorlmer to . the senate was one of
the most sensational In the history of the
state. It had been preceded by general
primaries, ' at which both parties recom
mended candidates for the senatorshlp.
Senator Hopkins, then the Incumbent, re
celved ' a plurality of votes . over ex-Gov
ernor Richard Tates, Congressman Edmund
Foss and others.
congressman juoriroer naa not Deen a
candidate, but came forward when It be
came plain that no other choice could be
made. With the assistance of democratic
votes he was, elected.
White' story In substance waa that
Browne approochrd htm at Springfield and
offered him $1,000 to caat his vote for Lorl
mer. White, in hla confession, . declares
that ha accepted the money with the pur
pose of showing beyond a doubt corruption
existed in the legislature.
At the same time. White admitted he
spent the money which was given him In
three lots of $30 each and one of $830. This
feature of the confession in the eyes of
Htates Attorney Wayman, weakened the
story as legal evidence, particularly as
Lorlmer, Browne and others ralsd a chorus
of alleged blackmail.
The confession of Beckemeyer therefore
was received with the greatest satisfaction
by the prosecution. Beckemeyer upheld
White on the essential points, It Is alleged,
of having accepted $1,000 for hla vote for
Lorlmer, of having been at St Louis at
the time another alleged "Jack-pot" was
distributed and of having accepted a share
equal to that of Whlte'a.
Seven Illinois legislators were present in
the Illinois criminal court building today
when the grand Jury ass in session. They
were, H. J. C. Beckemeyer, W. C. Blair,
Panlel P. Ponahue. Joseph H. Clark,
Henry IA. Shepherd, Michael S. Link and
Charles A. White. In addition, the widow
and two children of the late Representa
tive Charles 8. Luke were In attendance.
Luke, Breckemeyer. Link and Shepherd are
alleged by White to have Deen at St.
Louis when the "Jack-Jot," made up of
the proceeds of various purchased legisla
tion, waa distributed.
None of the men indicted In the Lorlmer
case would talk for publication tonight.
Mr. Browne, talking over the long-distance
telephone from his home at Ottawa,
declined to state when he would come to
Chicago. Senator Lorlmer declared he had
no statement to make at this time.

Possibility of an invasion by suffragettas
and a week of speechmaklne such as was
visited upon New York was ' promised In a
meeting of the Central Iabor union Friday
night. The development came In a letter
from Dr. Inez F. Thilbrlck. official organ
izer of the Nebraska Woman's Suffrage
association, asking the Omaha union men
to arrange for a public meeting to be ad
dresaed by Dr. B. O. Aylesworth, the na
tional suffrage lecturer. Dr. Aylesworth
was until recently the president of the State
Agricultural college of Colorado.
According to the. letter It Is planned by
the suffragettes to hold a series of lectures
and other campaigning expedients In
Omaha for a period of a week. The Cen
tral Labor union was asked to endorse the
forthcoming campaign, as it was said the
American Federation of Labor and a num
ber of state labor organizations have done.
A motion was unanimously passed ac
cepting the request and ordering that the
next regular meeting. May 20. be sst as a
public one to be addressed by the suffrage
lecturer. The suffrage campaign Is to take
place from May 15 to Si. Inclusive.
In the course of the meeting a communi
cation also was resd from the district
council of the carpenters' union, recom
mending that stps be taken to have the
city revise lis syetem of paying Its work

to be paid by the week, and object to the
method of holding back a. week's Wages,
