brine rooms and then to the Swift plant.
At the Stock exchange luncheon was to be

the legislators In the killing departments
of the packing houses was too great to be
easily satisfied and more time was spent
there and In the yards than had been
planned for. At the luncheon the visitors

Interests; we all are the same people and
we want to stand by each other. I want
to counsel the legislature never to do any
thing unjust to this great enterprise or to
any other. We are proud of It and want
to sea It prosper. You seem to have done
all these wonderful things without ex

exerted yourselves."

Woodyard of the Vermillion county grand
Jury appeared before Circuit Judge K. 11.
E. Klmbrough as soon as the latter opened
court today and asked the court to cans.
Sheriff John T. Shepard to explain whv
he did not serve subpoenaea given him by
the grand Jury. Woodyard also asked that
a deputy sheriff other than Fred ("lr.")
Vulrlch be appointed to guard the grand
Jury room.
The request . of Foreman Woodyard
Paused a sensation here, Inasmuch a
Sheriff Shepard was mentioned In the first
reports, which later were denied, as hav
ing admitted buying votes. It was for
nlm, according to the stories, that City At
torney Frank W. Jones Is alleged to have
bought votes, as related to the grand Jury
yesterday by newspaper men.
Vutrlch, the deputy, was one of Sheriff
Shepard's chief henchmen In the last elec

A rumor was circulated early today that
Mr. Woodyard, who has appeared from
tne very first as the central figure of the
Investigation, and who has been looked to
by the element here which desires a thor
ough search, as the one man of the county
who would satlBfy all demands for thor
oughness, was dissatisfied with the way
witnesses were being questioned before the
grind Jury, and that he would ask that
either an assistant to State's Attorney
John H. Lewman or a special assistant
state's attorney be named to conduct the

States Attorney lawman has not claimed
at any time to be the moving factor In the
Investigation, but has refused to announce
any plans or commit himself In any way
except to say that he was only the servant
of the grand Jury and would awatt the
commands of that body.
Among those for whom subpoenas had
been Issued for appearance today were
City Attorney Jones, whose conversation
with newspaper men and the subsequent
assertions and denials as to Its nature
brought the matter to a crisis: K. X.

To the New York senator the proposed
amendment as reported from the Judiciary
