Mr. MacVeagh said he "wanted ta ascer

Deneen favored Lorlmer's election. -
"Do you think Mr. Hlnea might have
mentioned Mr. Reynolds' name for pur
poses of Identification 7" Inquired Senator
Fletcher, referring to Hlnes" testimony.
"No," was the response. "Mr. Reynolds
could not have Identified Mr. Hlnes for I
did not know Mr. Reynolds very well."
Governor Deneen declared that It was
net necessary for him to assist them, be

politics in connection with the senatorial
Mr. Hanecy suggested that none of the
followers of Chauncey. Dewey or John R
Thompson voted for Lorimer until after a
senatorial conference held in the gover

purpose of that meeting was to prevent
their followers from voting for Lorimer.
Governor Deneen said that before the
publication of the alleged White confession
Editor Keeley of the Chicago Tribune sug
gested to him that a special session of the
legislature be convoked to oonalder the
Lorimer esse. The wltnesa said that after
the publication he tentatively wrote a mes
sage proposing a special session. At a con

Senate Will Put
Wool Tariff Matter
Up to the President
Smoot, Crane and Williams Say La
Follette Bill Will Be Passed and
Accepted by House.
WASHINGTON. July IB. If Senators
Smoot and Crane, republicans, and Wil
liams, (democrat, prove true prophets,
President Taft will have to solve one of
the hardest problems of his administration
before the adjournment of the special ses
sion of congress. According to these three
senators, all of whom talked with the
president today, the senate, 'through a com
bination of democrats and insurgents, will
pass the La Follette bill, revising the wool
schedule of the present tariff.
The house already has passed a wool
bill which differs materially with that
drawn by Senator La Follette, but, accord
ing to the same unofficial prophets, it
would accept the latter measure rather
than get no bill at all. President Taft, it
la pointed out. then would be face to face
with one of the most difficult questions
that has come before him. He has called
this present wool schedule "indefensible."
The tariff board has promised to furnish
data for a sctentlflo revision of that
schedule by December and In many of his
later speeches the president has declared
that he opposed any revision not based
upon Investigation of the board. He has
placed himself In opposition to what hs
has termed "unscientific" and "haphasard"
tariff "tinkering." Indicating plainly that
be would prefer congress to wait until the
tariff' board has made Its report.
The president. It wss said today, has con
fided to a few people his future course of
action If a wool revision bill should be put
up to him. It is believed, however, that
he would veto the La Follette bill and in
his veto message make a defense to the
country for such action.
It was said late today that the regular
republicans might make an effort to coun
teract the effect of th emovement by in
troducing a blU of their own, but they have
little hope of success.

WASHINGTON. D. C, July 16. (Spe

expected, will launch his boom for the
presidency through his' speech to be made
to the senate In opposition to the reci
procity pact. There are those who say
thait La Follette will talk four days and
In his address, which Is to be a review of
the republican party and Its achievements.
In the past fifty years, will point-to Its
days of progresslveness and ths days

La Follette Rest lea Heather.
Robert M. La Follette is a most inter
esting study, especially during these dog
days. His nervous energy seems to be
peculiarly fitted to atmospheric conditions
where the thermometer is over a hundred
degrees in the shade and the humidity is
about sixty. The doughty warrior, for the
rights of the "dear pee-pul" is the most
restless' member of the senate. . Hither
and thither he goes talking to democrats
and his progressive associates on the re
publican side of the chamber, a bit of rep
artee with Bailey, a funnylsm with John
Sharp Williams, a story to Biistow, who
follows his leader with a blind devotion
that Is sublime, and thus he works. Sen
ator La Follette is "agin" reciprocity as
agreed to by the minister of finance of
Canada and the American representatives
now before the senate waiting for a vote.
He Is for the farmers' free list bill with
a string and for the democratic woolen
schedule with a ball of yarn thrown in
and Robert M. La Follette's platform will
be "La Follette and the dear people." How
long will he last? Who Is there amongst

Brown's Trip an the Sea.
It transpired during the recent week-end
trip of President Taft on the Mayflower,
when he had. as his guests eight senators
equally divided between the two great po
litical parties, that Senator Brown of Ne
braska and Senator "Bob" Taylor of Ten
nessee were "bunkles," and they had the
stateroom fitted up for Mrs. Ogdea Goelet,
whose husband formerly owned the magnif
icent presidential yacht which came to be
government property by purchase during
the war with Spain. In this stateroom Mrs.
Goelet had built a magnificent bath tub as
high as you are and as long, and here,
when this floating palace was going at a
speed of twenty or more knots an hour,
she would take her bath surrounded by all
the creature comforts afforded by a New
Tork apartment house. Senator Taylor
eyed , this luxurious bath tub enviously and
finally confided to Brown that he proposed
to take a bath in the marble basin erected

for some unknown reason they couldn't

reply to the charge Delegate
Wlckersham that he had allowed the
statute of limitation to expire in certain
Alaska criminal cases without taking ac

the statute of limitation has expired in all
of these cases. It ls not Improbable that
criminal action may be taken. The matter
Is still under Investigation Insofar as It re

in the coal proposition. The Hatey case,
however, I think ls barred by the statute.
I will continue my Investigation of the
others. It has been under way for some

Hall startled the assembled hosts by stating
the purpose of the meeting was to select
delegates to "the Grand Islnnd" convention.
While the result of the remark was to bring
up unkind remembrances It served the
double pttrpoe of shaking off the letharglo
state Into which the democrats had fallen,
and morever acted as a mild Incentive to
ward putting them on guard fur the after
noon. Delea-atea ta Select Delegates.
Cpon motion of Tom 8. Allen, ten dels
gates were appointed to select the delegate's
to attend the state convention and only
an Instant later T. J. Doyle surprised ho
convention by movinp that the chair ap
point a committee of five to draft a set of
resolutions. The first named committee
composed of five city and five county mem
bers, about equally divided aa to wet, and
dry sentiment. The latter committee was
composed of T. J. Doyle, R. L. Metcalfe,
M. L. Blackburn, Lincoln; A. E. Sutherland
of Waverty, and J. B. Paisley of Buda.
The sentiment of the convention from
start to finish was for Bryan and every
thing for which he stands. Not only did
the dry Bryan democrats manifest (Ticm
pelves, but they were led to some extent
by certain wet Bryan Influences, the two
of which coupled together, made too
formidable an aggregation for the wet
antl-Bryanltes, If there were any there,
to cope with: There was no organisation;
It was just a quiet Saturday afternoon
pink tea affair with everything breaking
Bryan's way without any seeming effort
on the part of his supporters for such a
thing to happen..
Here Are the Resolutions.
In addition to putting their stamp of
approval upon the works of the last ses
sion of the state legislature. Including the
proposed Initiative and referendum and
lauding the deeds of the special session of
congress, the following resolution was
adopted with applause, long, loud and
continued from the assembled cohorts:
"We take a Just pride In the feet that
this country has furnished to the nation
the standard bearer of the party In three
national .campaigns, that nearly every na
tional reform since 1896, has been Inspired
by W. J. Bryan. We esteem him the
greatest living exponent of the great
truths which form the foundation of the
republic, and congratulate him that his
tireless efforts In the advocacy of great
truths which he has espoused, have be
come effective and that his opponents have
first ridicule!., then maliciously opposed
and finally adopted and enacted Into law
and sworn they were the originators.
"For this unparallelled public servlcs ho
should forever rank with the Immortals In
the heart of the American people."
