fied in bringing suit for slander against

-'Mb Shepard replied to criticisms fronj
PresldentCarroll O. Pears that, he ;had
been attempting ' merely 'to weed out

"I want to know by what right an offi
cer of this association Judges who are and
who are not fake members," demanded
Mr. Ferguson. :' .
Mr. Shepard then explained he had bees
trying to administer the by-laws so as to
eliminate all but bon&flde members. He

Former President la Designated . by
the Florida Senator aa the
Headquarters of Mor
ality. ;
WASHINGTON. July ?.-An attack upon
Theodore Roosevelt for condemning Sena
tor Lorimer of Illinois, featured the de
fense in the Lorimer election case In the
senate today. ' Senator " Fletcher- of
Florida,' following up the' conclusion of
Senator Dillingham's ' speech for Lori
mer, arraigned Roosevelt
'Theodore Roosevelt could enjoy a
luncheon with Booker Washington at the
White 'House," declared -Mr. Fletcher,
"but could not afford to dine In the same
room with Mr. Lorimer, a member of the
club of which he was a guest."
.The . Florida senator referred to the
former president as the "headquarters
of morality," .who condemned Lorimer on
the false allegation repeated to him by
Editor H. H. Kohlsaat that tlOO.000 had
been raised and used to elect Lorimer.
Senator Fletcher said ' that Colonel
Roosevelt does not know the facts.
The damning of a respectable citizen,
the head of a beautiful family, the repre
sentative of a state' In high of i Ice," said
Senator Fletcher, "was a walcomc thing
If it gave opportunity to' attitudinize as
the standard of honor and righteousness
and the acme of civic virtue."
Had Faith In Font.
Senator Fletcher said that Editor Kohl-
saat placed explicit faith in what Clarence
H. Funk told him' about Edward Hlnes
asking .for a contribution to a $100,000
Lorimer fund He contended' that Mr.
Funk's memory was unreliable and that
Mr. Funk had given seven different dates
as the time at which his conversation
with Mr.- Hlnes regarding the "slush
fund" had occurred. He said the Funk
story, had been known' to Keeley of the
Tribune, Kohlsaat, of the Record-Herald
and Xawson of the News during the first
Lorimer congressional investigation.
That .-fact, shows," he declared," how
little importance was then attached to
a matter wiich afterward became the en
tire oasts oi tne second inquiry.
Senator Fletcher, characterised the
anti-Lorimer . speakers as the "honey
thunder press," which had poisoned , the
public mind to "drive Lorimer out of
politics in Illinois." He expressed the
opinion that Senator Lorimer' would not
stoop . to the purchase of votes or the de
bauching ' of . a legislature and that the
Illinois senator would surrender his office
if he felt his election had been the result
of fraudd.
Reed Wants to Know.
Senator Reed of Missouri asked If It
were not true that Senator Lorimer had
loaned $10,000 to Lee O'Nell Browne for
his defense of the legal proceedings
agalnBt him growing out of the legisla
tive charges. ; ' ; ,
; Yes," almost, snapped the generally
eomplacent senator -from Vermont in re
plyind -if, I : fcadbeett;;BMs place I"
should have done the same thing. , If J
had been Convinced that there had been
a conspiracy -to switch charges from their
original purpose I would have contributed
to prevent the success of 'such a purpose.
I should have done all in my power to
smash such a combination." ,
Senator Borah expects to speak at some
length, taking the other side of the argu
ment. Senator Lea of Tennessee, another
o Mr.. Lorimer's opponents, is 'yet to
speak. It is expected the vote may not
be taken before Wednesday or Thursday.
Some of Mr. Lorimer's friends in the sen
ate believe the vote will be against him.

guese royalists and many of them are

May Change Name
to Progressives
ATLANTIC CITY, N. J., July $.-Maln-talnlng
that the prohibition party Is the
original progressive party, a determined
effort will be made by Its leaders , to
change the party name at the national
convention, which opens here Wednesday.
Though the party to be formed next
month in Chicago Is being referred to as
the "progressive party," the prohibition
ists point to the fact that the oragnlza
tlon, as yet unborn, has not been chris
tened and that they are entitled to the
t.ew name if they choose to taks it -
The New York, Pennsylvania ind Ne
braska delegations are reported to be
practically solid in favor of a change
of name. '
"The name, 'prohibition party,.' is an
unfortunate one for . us,'' said ' Charles
R. Jones, chairman of the national com
mittee. , "It Is not a progressive name
and does not truly reflect the 'party's
character. We are progressive In all
things. Of course our basic principle is
the suppression of the liquor traffic, but
even 'prohibition', does not fully express
that. .
"Our party is the original progressive
party and at this convention we expect
to deal carefully and progressively wlth
all the big political Issues of the time.
'The name 'progressive'.- was suggested
several years ago and our official news
paper now contains the word 'progressive'
in its title. Other names that have been
suggested are the, 'American' and 'liberty
party." .
The ' executive ' committee today will
complete plans for the temporary organi
zation. Clinton N. Howard of Rochester,
N. Y., known as the Little Giant, prob
ably will be chosen temporary chairman
of tho convention.

WASHINGTON, July 8.-A sharp differ
ence along political lines has developed
In the Senate over the proposed Impeach
ment of Judge Robert W. Archbald i of'
the commerce court. Many senators, In
cluding Influential republicans, favor de
ferring the trial until after the Novem
ber elections, contending that ample time
should be given to prepare for the hear-,
Ing of the Impeachment charges and that'
many senators are needed at home to'
look after their political fences.'
Among others are Senators Bailey and
Reed, democrats, who -. urge that lm-1
peachment proceedings are of such high:
privilege that they should be taken up
as soon as the house shall prefer charges.
Irrespective of the personal comfort and
convenience of senators.
The thirteen articles of Impeachment,
each an accusation, were presented to
the house today with the announcement
that their' consideration tomorrow would
be demanded. Speaker Clark emphasised
the solemnity of the proceedings by se
curing the undivided attention of the
house while the article was being' read
by, Representative Clayton of Alabama,
chairman of the Judiciary committee,
which unanimously reported them. Mr.
Clayton dwelt on the gravity of the
charges. .
