WASHINGTON. April .-8enator Ii
Follette today Introduced a resolution pro
viding for another Investigation of the
Senator Iorlmer case. It names as the
committee of investigation. Senator Works
of California. Townsend of Michigan, Mc
liean of Connecticut, Kern of Indiana, and
Pomerene of Ohio. No action was taken
as Senator La Follette Intends to speak
upon the resolution another day.
The resolution recites the action of the
senate last session when a move to declare
the seat of Senator Iorlmr vacant because
of alleged corruption of the Illinois legisla
ture which eleoted blm failed. The resolu
It appears from the published reports of
the proceedings of the said Illinois state
senate committee that witnesses who were
not called and sworn by the committee of
this senate appointed to investigate said
charges, have appeared before the said
committee of the Illinois state senate and
on being Interrogated have given Important
material testimony tending to prove that
JlnO.OdO was corruptly expended to secure
the election of William lxjrlmer to the
I'nlted States senate.
After naming the special committee which
It Is proposed to have appointed to con
duct a new Inquiry, the resolution pro
vides for meetings of the committee during
spsslona of the senate and gives to it full
authority to aubpoenae persons and send
for papers and to administer oaths.
Resolution Will B eOpposed.
It Is expected the adoption of the reso
lutln will be opposed by senators who voted
for Senator Ixrlmer last session and that
an effort will be made to have the reso
lution referred to the committee on privi
leges and elections, of which Senator Dil
lingham of Vermont will be the new chair
man. The Vermont senator, as a member
of the committee, voted laet session against
the resolution to unseat Mr. Ixirlmer. .
xNever before In the history of the senate
has an Individual member sought Jp.jname
a committee of Investigation touching on
the right of a senator' to retain his seat,
or for n other matter. When" spevisj
committees have been named for any pur
pose, the personnel has rested with the
vice president or the senate Itself.. In the
larter- Instances the committees Invariably
have been subcommittee! of standing com
mittees. All 'of the men nominated by the I.a
Follette resolution began their terms In
the senate with the convening of the pres
ent, extraordinary session. It is understood
they were selected at a conference of pro
Senator Stone of Missouri made the pre
diction at the White Houne today that the
senate would be compelled to investigate
for the second time the charges of bribery
In Ixirlmer's election. Senator Stone be
lieves that a new committee will be ap
pointed to prosecute the investigation.
"The testimony In the Investigation in
Springfield Is so ugly" said Mr. Stone,
that It seems to me that congress must
take notice of It and If I am not mistaken
the senate will take some action. The
proprieties of the situation might Influence
the senate to wait until the Illinois Inveatl-,
gatlon Is finished. Testimony produced In
Springfield undoubtedly will be brought of
ficially to the attention of the senate."

SALT LAKE CITV. I'tah, April S-The
position of the Church of Jesus Christ,

called, the Mormon church, on marriage
was reiterated today by' President Joseph

"We ought to obey the rule of the church
with regard to marriage. As announced
time and time oaln, at these conferences
plural marriages have ceased In the church.
There Is no man authorized to perform a
plural marriage. We have been doing all
In our iower to stop this. We have been
doing all we can to trace the men who
art performing such ceremonies. It is hard
to locate them but when we do find them
we will deal with them.
"With respect to the Idea proposed by
some, to Induce the congress of the L'nlted
States to amend the constitution so as
to give the federal government power to
regulate plural marriage, so far as I am
concerned, I have no objection whatever
to such an' amendment. Neither has any
other Latter Day Saint. It the state
petition to the national congress to regu
late the whole subject of marriage In the
I'lited State and It will be a Godsend to
the people everywhere."

central thought is that there Is an abuse
