WASHINGTON. Feb. 13-P,y resorting lo
the bold device of asking hi antagonist
in the anate to eland up and testify.
Senator Bailey of Texas today developed
a dramatic situation In hl. discussion of
the rase of Senator Lorimer of llllnola I
Mr. Bailey la a member of the committee
on privilege and election and coincided
with th report declaring that nothing In
validating Mr. Lorimer title to hia seat
had been developed by the committee' ln
veatlgatlon. Hia argument In aupiort of
Mr. T.orlmer had been anticipated with
much Interest, and when presented today
received the thoughtful attention of many
The Texan aerator's remnrka were de
voted largely to the substantiation of his
contention that a sufficient numb r of vote
must be shown to ha e been bought to ef
fect the result, unless it la proven that
the official whose election Is challenged
f-ersonally participated In the offense.
Senators Root. Cummins and Borah, all
opponent of Mr. Lorimer. wore each In
turn requested to stand up and express
their opinions as to the legal soundnes
of this proposition.
Two Propositions of I. aw.
Dealing first with the general aspects of
the case. Senator Ralley entered upon the
consideration of the law Involved. He laid
down these two propositions:
rirst If the officer whoso election .Is
challenged, personally participated In. -r
encouraged, or sanctioned the brlhAYy. then
his election Is void, without reference to
the extn of the bribery.
Second If the officer whose election i4
challenged, did not personally participate
In, or encourage, or sanction the bribery,
then his election cannot he avoided, tinier
II is ahown by sufficient evidence that
enough votes wrre bribed to effect the re
ault. . The flrat of these propositions was dis
missed with the declaration that there was
not a word In the testimony tu show that
Mr. Lorimer had any knowledge of anv
bribery In hla behalf. He asserted that
the Chicago Tribune had been compelled
through lis attorney to exonerate the ac
cused senator In this respect, notwithstand
ing an unusual effort to connect him with
tt. True, the acnator said, in the heat of
debate some senators had sought to con
nect Mr. Lorlmer with the alleged wrong
ful transaction, but he was sure they
would repent of that course.
Mr. Bailey contended that even If the
s- ven votes of White, Browne, Beckemeycr.
I.lr.k, Wilson, Holstlaw and Broderick were
not counted, Mr. Lorimer still had been
legally and properly chosen.
lalaa of Tainted Votes.
"Deducting these aeven votea from Mr.
Lorlmerg 108, would leave him 101, and de
ducting these aeven votea from the total
vote of 202, would leave 1. of which the
lftl votes received by Lorlmer would con
atitute a clear majority, and he waa there
fore duly and legally elected," Instated Sen
fie ridiculed th contention of hia op
ponents i that theae votea could be sub
tracted from I,orlmer'a column and still
be retained in the total vote, declaring
the contrary view waa so elementary aa
to render It almost absurd to present au
thorities In support of It.
"Wa hav the authority of the text books
and of the courts for saying that an il
legal vote must be rejected for all pur
poses and that it cannot be considered for
any purposes," the aenator continued.
"That la not only the law and the logic,
but it la the(rule beat calculated to promote
political morality. It treats a dishonest
vole aa if the corrupt legislator who cat It
were civilly dead, at leant In that trans
action and leaves the result to be deter
mined by the votea of honest men."
Mr. Haliey would not admit, as senator
Boot, Borah and others had charged, that
In demanding the total exclusion of dishon
est votea, ha really was giving effect to
such votes. On the contrary he undertook
to turn the charge upon his antagonists.
sajlng that allegations of taint had been
made; against eleven members of the Illi
nois legislature, he added:
ouuiracung ineae eleven votea rrom a
total of 203 we have an unchallenged
membership of 191 members who by virtue
of their position and of their Integrety
mere qualified to elect senator. Of this
U'l members ntnety-alx would be a majority.
and after deducting every vote againat
which the suggestion of dishonesty has been
made Lorimer would still have ninety-seven
as against ninety-four votes for his op
ponent" Matter of Morals.
"Under those circumstance no man could
deny that ha was entitled to hi scat In
thta senate as a matter of law, and alill
let can they deny it aa a matter of morals,
because he had a clear majority of the
honest men In the legislature. Now, let
u apply the rule proposed by the aenator
from Idaho, Iowa and New York, and
what result do we reach?
"By keeping these eleven men In this
equation they prevent ninety-seven honest
men from effecting an election over ninety
four honest men, and thla makes It plain
that they are the gentlemen who are giv
ing effect to the votes of rascals, because
by preserving those votes they then pre
vent an honest majority from working out
Pet luring then that the law as be
propounded tt would prove to be "thei

fitiem-e of the corruptionials In our politic,;
Mr. Bailey concluded: j
"No matter how honest the aentleini.ii!
on the other aide may be. It Is still true.

llesle Admtselnn of Hrthery
Mr. Bailey would not accept the proposi
tion that there was admission that four
mamhera of the llllnola legislature had
b?en bribed. White, who had charged
bribery, had been utterly contradicted and
the substantiation of his chargra had been
left entirely to the Chicago Tribune and
others atanding with that paper.
"Tou could not Impanel a Jury in Amer

Work Within Week
Initiative and Referendum and Kum
ber of Other Measures Still on
CHUTKNNR. Wyo., Feb. 13-f3peelal .)
This is. the closing week of the Wyoming
legislature and promises to be the busiest
one of the forty-day session. While many
progressive measures have been killed, and
only one, the direct primary, haa been en
acted Into law. several Imports nt measures
are at. II being considered. Among these la
the Initiative and referendum, upon which
the membera appear to be equally divided.
It Is believed a majority favor the enact
ment of this legislation, but there Is a vast
difference of opinion aa to some of the
features of the bill. Some wish the per
centage of voters necessary to Invoke the
initiative and referendum placed at 25 per
cent, while others feel that 15 per cent
would be about right. Still others believe
that wr cent la the only proper bast upon
which to enact the law. The matter I now
before the senate and early action Is an
ticipated. Bills are now pending creating many
board, commissions and state offices.
Very few will pass.
The bill providing for the reimbursement
of Big Horn county In the sum of $25,000 for
expenses Incurred In the prosecution of the
Ten Sleep sheep camp raiders, who are
now serving terms In the state penitentiary,
will undoubtedly pass the senate, having
passed the house last week.
The bill to reimburse citizens of Casper,
veterinarians and sheep inspector, for
work in connection with an epidemic of
Hp and leg ulceration among the sheep of
Natrona county two years ago, will also
pass. This measure appropriates between
! and $l.0oo for services, hotel bills,
livery hire, etc. The bills were rejected by
the State Board of Sheep Commissioners, to
which same were, referred, two years ago
on the ground that the board had no au
thority to pay for work done which was
not authorized by the board.
Among the bills that have been buried
was one by Mr. Tllden prohibiting the dis
charge of firearms upon the property of
others. This would have put an end to
hunting In Wyoming.
Among the recent bills introduced are two
regulating the inspection and treatment erf
sheep Imported from other states.

of a state reform school to be known a

"English women are much more In earn
est In their struggle for suffrage than are
the American women," answered Mlas
Mary T.. Sullivan, who haa Just returned
to Omaha from Ixndon where for the last
twelve months and more she haa been delv
ing In the English archive for data ip
regard to England' great dramatist.
"For the English woman whose sympa
thies are enlisted, the suffrage question Is
the one great question. T have been asked
by many of them why It Is that the Ameri
can women are not more active. I replied
that while Mi England woman' attention
seems to be focused on this question,
In this country women are Interested In a
great many other questions." ,
"But again." Miss Sullivan said. "It was
of Interest to compare the way the Ger
man and English women approach the
question. In Germany It la largely an In
dustrial one. Women there, you know, have
gone Into all kinds of work. Tn Mu
nich I saw women wearing high boots and
short skirt, loose coaas, not a evry at
tractive costume, and standing in the mid
dle of the streets, attending to their du
ties as switch tenders. The English women
would not do this. They think too much
of dress, cling to the traditions of dress.
They won't eyen discard their lace when
they do assume the work In which such
things are out of place.
Among; Dusty Volumes.
"For instance, in the records office where
we worked, examining the records, were
many of these women, students, research
ers, and copyists, also examining the rec
ords. It Is a very dusty place. Some of the
records haven't been touched for centuries,
t should say, and It Is a place for old
clothes. Vet many of these English women
wore lace cuffs, and dainty color. They
cling to these things."
Asked If she thought the English suf
fragette wa near victory. Mis Sullivan re
plied negatively. "They are afraid of It
because there are so many more women
than men. The men In power fear that If
women are given the right to vote It will
mean that It will soon become woman's
uffrage, not equal suffrage."
Miss Sullivan, who followed the march of
the women during the now famous No
vember riot In a taxlcab, saw many of
the stirring incidents when the marcher
and policemen clashed. She terms It a
most Impressive demonstration, fully prov
ing the earnestness and courage of the
women In line, "and these women Included
women from all stations of life."
Of Prof. Charle William Wallace, and
hi Shakespearean discoveries, Misa Sulli
van speaks with much enthusiasm. The
English, she say, give htm honor for his
discoveries and yet "some feel a bit dis
gruntled to think that an outsider should
have come In and discovered these records."
A bill has been Introduced in parliament
recommending that Prof. Wallace' dis
coveries be investigated and recognized.
As a student searching the official rec
ords for Information In regard to the real
Shakespeare and the happenings of his
time. Mis Sullivan said she found It most
Interesting to witness the performance of
George Barnard Shaw' latest play which
deals with the love atory which popular
fancy ha woven Into or from Shakes
peare' aonnets: "The Dark Lady of the
Sonnets." Mies Sullivan called the play
Misa Sullivan resumed her duties as
teacher in the high school Monday, and

CATTLE Receipts of cattle were very
1 rK-l " mo"nlng-334 car being reported
. '. . ! very "'"eh larger than on any
recent day and about double the receipt
on Monday of last year. Unfortunately
for the activity of the market a number of
trains were very late in arriving at the
yards, so that when It waa time for the
market to open only a portion of the esti
mated run wa In ight. Late traina al
ways contribute toward a alow market,
buyera being Inclined to wait until every
thing is in sight, with the Idea that they
will have more cattle from which to make
selections. Another fact that wa against
the selling Interests waa the large receipts
reported at all other markets with some of
them at least quoting a break in price.
The weather was also againat the seller,
there being a heavy fog and mist during
the greater part of the morning, which did
not help the appearance of the cattle. The
quality of the receipt waa also poor, the
great big bulk of the arrivals being made
up of traahy old thin cowa. half fed and
traahy steer and with very little tn the
way of really desirable atock.
The market opened extremely alow and
dull and the forenoon waa well advanced
before the cattle were yarded and ready to
be shown and before buyera seemed willing
to get down to business.
The trade continued to drag from atart to
finish and It waa unaually late in the after
noon before anything like a clearance wa
The best beef steer, owing to the fact
that the supply of that kind of cattle wa
small, did not show much change aa com
pared with last week's close. On the other
hand the common to fair kinds were slow
and weak to lOBIoc lower at least.
Cows and heifers were anywhere from
weak to 10ft 15c lower and in some cases
possibly worse than that.
Feeder were very hard to move and they
suffered fully aa much aa killers.

HUGH Bearish belief in buruenaonie hog
receipts waa more than justified by today a
rune at eaatern points. Chicago drew SO.OuO
head, a supply that la much heavier than
the heavleat estimate Saturday. Other
markets were liberally supplied and the
local recelpta were the largest for a Mon
day since June of laat year.
Prices broke sharply under pressure of
crowded shipments and decline were gen
eral. Bulk of local buslneoa appeared to be
right around 10c lower than at last week's
close, average cost settling around the 1, tiO
mark. Iorig airings held at a
apread. however, tope were decidedly low.
Packera bought the big end or ri-ceipi
only a few scattered loads moving through
shipping and speculative outlets. Iiemand
waa quiet from the atart. resulting In a
rather late clearance.
Best bacon animals on sale bad to aell at
t7.uf'(j?.10. the latter price being the hhet
paid. Ordinary mixed ruled around 17.00
and lard grades dropped well under even
money. Extra heavy packing clasaes
proved slow at S"5 8fl and Ins.

Mlbbr Iiii spread between sheep and
lamb pricea ahowed that same narrowing
tendencies thla morning that were evident
at last week a close. Sheep met with a
healthy demand at steady to strong figures,
while lambs were slow t possibly a little
lower. Suppliea were fully normal and con
alsted largely of ewea and lamba, the per
centage of wether and yearling being sea
Buying preference naturally centered
upon good grades moving around S4-20IH4.23,
and a atrlctly choice article reaching 4 36.
The latter price. It will be noted. Is a dime
higher than extreme sales last week. Weth
ers of dressing promise brought 14.25, Indi
cating a top quotation little if any higher
than actual top on ewea Best yearlinga
available aold at and around Si 00.
The easier condition of lamb trade was
generally credited to Influence arising
from doubtful tone to trade at eastern
polnta. None of the regular buyers acted
very friendly to stock of this description
and clearance was draggv and late. Most
pf the stuff sold at levels weak to a little
lower, best atringa selling at S3.RS snd less.
The market was poorly supported In all
Its branches by country buyers and a lack
of activity In ahearer trade waa at least
partially responsible for the dull movement
of lambs. Offerings suitable fo- shearing
and final finish are selling on much the
same basis as good quality killers.
