Llfferences In attitude between member

nature of examination and cross-examination.
There waa occasionally the stiegcs

a defendant came from the framing of the
questions. Parliamentary clashes threat
ened at tlmea. Anton Sagl and D. II. Cro-
tiln of the committee exchanged tart re
marks. Again Bagl met, by Interjecting I
objections more frequent than timely, with
abort word from W. A. Prince, who con-
ducted much ot the examination for the
Adjourn at Kom Today.
Today the session of the committee will

A call for volunteer witnesses was made
by Chairman Harrington lute In the after-
noon session In a speech which he Injected
Into the proceedings.
"Frequently the question has come to
me," said Mr. Harrington. " 'are you going
to whitewash thee fellows? There is a lot
of corruption here In Omaha. If you can
only find It.
"What we want Is fact. It anyone knows
anything about corruption In the Omaha
election they should come before us here
and say It. If you want to accuse us do
It now, or ever after hold your peace.'
Harrington asKed that the Invitation be
spread aver the city among the business
men and In all claasei khy those who heard
him In the committee room at the Paxton.
Je Bvldwnce Says Eaallaa.
Lack of sufficient cvUicr.ce to make a
case waa the reason given ty James Eng
lish, county attorney, for not having In
stituted prosecutions for Illegal operations
In connection with the elections.
"I never had presented to me evidence
sufficient to treat the charges seriously,"
said Knrllsh when he took the stand at
the opening of the afternoon session yester
day. "Whether there Is such evidence is
another question." ,
Mr. English said he had no personal
knowledge of Irregularity.
Publication In The Bee of the picture of
the pool hall at 417 South Thirteenth street,
where democratic votes were registered in
droves, brought forth a large number of
witnesses In the course of the luto after

COMMITTEES WORK CRITICIZED
Its findings and Methods Aitlrird
from Leant Standpoint and
Both Are Declared I in
proper. WASHINGTON, Feb. S.-The entire sen
ate today sat through a long speech by
Senator Root and heard him declare that
Senator William I.orlmer should be ex
cluded from his seat on account of bribery
In his election by the Illinois legislature,
regardless of what methods of subtraction
were resorted to with reference to the
seven alleged tainted votes.
Senator Bailey created a sensation by
asserting that If Lorimer were shut out by
any such logic then Mr. cr.llom. the ven
erable Illinois senior senator, also should
be excluded and he added Impressively:
"And there Is no one here who would
not acquit Mr. Cullom of having knowl
edge of any wrong doing In connection
with his election."
The New York senator held the undivided
attention of his colleagues. Mr. Root's
position had been a question of much spec
ulation and so high Is the esteem In which
his opinion Is held, that It Is known some
members of the senate have held In abey-
Bnce their own opinions until they could
hear from him.
There was a large attendance of senators
and the galleries were well filled.
Mr. Root spoke without notes and In the
main his address consisted of a careful
analysis of the testimony taken by the
committee. The argument waa almost en
The speaker lost little time ln Indicating
the conclusion he had reached, which was
entirely antagonistic to Mr. Lorimer.
Committee's Methods Wrong.
He took the position that the Investigat
ing commltee. toad been at fault ln permit
ting either the attorney for Mr. Lorlrner or
the attorney for the Chicago Tribune to
direct lta course In the matter of connecting
Mr. Lorimer with the corruption of mem
bers of the Illinois legislature, but agreed
that even In the face ot Its fault ln this
respect, the committee had obtained suffi
cient evidence effectually to taint and In
validate the election.
Citing the resolution under which the
Inquiry was directed, Mr. Root said the
committee had failed to find the tefUmnriy
sufficient, v. Justify the contlumon ihat
Mr. Lorlmer'a seat had been rendered In
valid by the employment of corrupt meth
ods or practices. ,
"It Is fair to infer." he said, "that the
committee was of the opinion that corrupt
methods and practices were resorted to.
but that their legal effect was not such as
to Invalidate Mr. Lorimer'a election.
"This view Is sustained by the testimony
before us, and I regret to say that after
an examination of this testimony 1 am
constrained to disagree with the members
of the committee."
Saying that he had been forced to this
conclusion with deep regret both on ac
count of his respect for the members of
the committee and of regard for Mr. Lori
mer. Senator Root said he had been im
pelled to reach an adverse view In the In
terest of the state of Illinois and of the
country at large.
"I cannot." he said earnestly, "come to
any different conclusion."

lie rprwru mo uuw t.
atate and country l ad been disgraced by
the methods ot the Lorimer election.
Not only did the senator differ as to the
conclusions but as to the methods ot the
senate committee. He did not believe that
organisation properly Interpreted the scope
I of Its instructions, but felt that It had
gone too far ln interpreting the charges as
a private complaint by the Chicago Tri
bune. The committee should, he thought,
have borne In mind that the reputation, the
honor, the purity and authority of the sen
ate were involved.
"When," he asked earnestly, "did we en
trust the guardianship of our honor and
Integrity to any newspaper or any man?
It was the duty of our committee to In
vestigate whether corrupt methods and
practices had been resorted to as directed
by the senate, and not to decide whether
the Tribune had established a case.
"It was clearly shown," Mr. Root con
tended, "that In following the leadership of
the Tribune the committee had failed to
take advantage of any opportunities to
obtain testimony. Avenue after avenue
hsd been voluntarily closed."
One effect of the committee's course had
been to create the feeling that this was

bill spline from the perlous moral sense
of Hatfield of ItnnraMer, a democrat, but
dry withal, who will Introduce the bill, and
declares that It Is at the request of the
street cur patrons of this cltv. The bill
provides as follows:
"That hereafter In this state It shnll be
unlawful for any person to year a hat pin
over seven Inches (n length: provided, how
ever, that this set shall not apply to the
wearlug of hat pins over seven Inches In

Just what Is going to happen to the ap
propriation for a new agricultural school
at Holdrege has becomo a parliamentary
qtMstlon. In several skirmishes the houe
has shown Itself opposed to the hill by n
small majority but today Kastman of
Franklin, the author, moved to reconsider.
Hie motion to reconsider was tabled by
a rote of 43 to 37 on a motion by Fllley
Kastman now Intends to get a majority
If possible and take It up from the table.
If he docs the speaker will be called ujioti
to settle this knotty question. Can a mo
tion to take from the table put a motion
to reconsider In order aaln when the tlma
for reconsideration has run out?
The original motion to postpone In
definitely was passed yesterday. The same
day or the next, that la Thurnd.iy or Fri
day, were the only two days upon which
a motion to reconsider this would be In
ordr.. fine Kaatrnen didlt succeed In
gert.ruT If, taken up from, the table yester
day or today, will It do him any good to
get It taken up Monday or any other time
when he con get together a majority?"
Speaker Kuhl has expressed himself when
not in the chair as of the opinion that 'no
parliamentary procedure can bring the bill
up for further consideration now. It Eai
man can get a majority, the opinion of thi
speaker will not count for much as a ma
jority can do what it pleases whether It
pleases the speaker or not. One of Fast
man's voles Is In Omaha on the Investigat
ing committee, but so also are several
against him, ro the return of that commit
tee will do him little good.
Initiative In Senate.
The initiative and referendum bill before
the senate will be dlscusned next Wednes
day as a special order of business. This
was settled In the morning session and two
other prominent measures were put off
until next week by a motion that passed
to have no more bills brought up for third
reading at the Saturday morning and Mon
day afternoon sessions. It Is considered
very probable that the deferred vote on
the tcunty option question, which was ex
pected for today, may be taken on that
day and Senator Hartllnt's base ball bill
