SENATORS DEFEND LORiMER
Johnston and Jonei Say He is Vic

SMITH RESEBTS INTIMATION
Statemeat that Opposition to 111!
solus Is Iafloenced by Clamor
Aronaes Ire of the Senator
WASHINGTON. July 10.-When the sen
ate took up the Lorlmer case today it
was Indicated -that all speeches ezceot
Senator Lorlmer's would be concluded
before night and that a vote would be
reached tomorrow. -
Senator Johnston of Alabama opened
today's session. He conceded a nooular
demand for Lortmer's unseating and said
he knew he would be oh the unpopular
side in supporting the Illinois man. but
1 refuse to save myself at the saeri
flee of my honor."
Senator Johnston " said thii number f
printed copies of the Lorlmer heart nci
taken from the senate document room in
dicated that less than half the senators
had read the evidence in the case. He
condemned as "un-Chrlstian and un
American" Colonel Roosevelt's course In
declining to sit with Senator Lorlmer at
the Hamilton club's dinner at Chleae-o
Senator Jones of Washington, who nn.
posed Lorlmer at the first trial, but who
supports him now., spoke after Senator
Senator Jones said that he had chanted
his convictions because hs had nerson.
ally heard the witnesses against Lorlmer.
He complained of public clamor in the
ease and charged it with having too
much influence in determining the votes
tmlth Resents Intimation.
This statement aroused Senator WU
lam Aldan Smith of Michigan, who con
fessed to irritation over what he char
acterised as "covert and Insinuating in.
tlmatlons in the press in support of Mr.
Lorlmer that those in opposition lack
honesty and courage and are subject
to influence by public clamor."
"That intimation is false," said Sen
Senator Jones denied any intention of
criticising the attitude of other senators-.
but he asserted that there had been too
much effort to control public senlment in
opposition to Lorlmer. He admitted that
there also had been perjury on both sides
of the ease.
The two senators discussed the evidence
at some length, and Mr. Smith finally re
ferred to the recent lawsuit brought in
Chicago by John Hennlng against Clar
ence Funk, general manager of the In
ternational Harvester company, in which
Hennlng charged Funk with alienation
of his wife's affections. Hennlng lost
his ease and his wife is said to have con
fessed that the charge was a conspiracy
to injure Funk for his testimony against
Senator Smith said he thought the suit
had been brought to affect the Lorlmer
"Do you think it affected the opinion of
any member of the committee?" asked
Mr. Jones." ; ' '
"Yes, I do," responded Mr. Smith.
In the course of the colloquy Senator
8mith declared It to be "worth a man's
life to antagonise certain elements in the
senate." He said he had run against that
condition when -first elected and had felt
it since,. No details were given, j,
' Jones Charges Forgery. '
Haierences to perjury, brought out a
vigorous statement from Senator Jones.
"The case agalnat Senator Lorlmer is
based upon and buttressed with forgery,"
Mr. Jones expressed the opinion that
the money distributed . by Lee O'Neill
Browne had been contributed by "whisky
Is there any evidence to support that
theory?" asked Senator Reed.
"It Is based much on the same theory
that Is pursued by Senator Lorlmer's op
ponents ih connecting him with the case,"
Mr. Jones replied. . 'There is no positive
evidence, but from the record It is the
most probable theory as to where the
money came from."
"Isn't it just as reasonable to suppose
that the corruption fund was used to
elect Lorlmer as to influence legisla
tion?" Benator Fomerene asked.
"I do not think so," replied Mr. Jones.
It was a legislative fund and there Is
nothing in the record to indicate that the
money was used for any other purpose.
' ' Jones Qnestione Meyers.
Senator Jones contrasted Senator Lorl
mer's election with the aid of democrats
with that of Senator Lea of Tennessee,
member of the investigating committee.
who had the aid of republicans in his
election. He quoted from a recent speech
by Senator Meyers of Montana in which
the latter said that there must be some
thing the matter with the heads or the
morals of democratic members of a leg
islature who voted for a republican for
the senate. r ,
Would the " senator make a similar
charge In the case of the election of a
democratic senator with the aid of re
publicans r Mr. Jones asked.
Mr, Meyers admitted that he would In
case In which the contest was close.
Senator Jones called attention to the
fact that the Tenneseean had been elected
by a majority of two. Votes, when thirty
two, of his supporters were democrats
and thirty-four republicans. He was sat
isfied, he said, that there was no corrup
tion in Mr. Lea's election, but had used
It to illustrate his point
Mr, Meyers declared he had said only
that the circumstances of an election at
the hands of the opposition would be
'suspicious, not conclusive." He had not
the Tennessee case In hand.
Htnea and Fnnkv .
While Mr, Jones was undertaking to
settle the question of .Veracity between
Mr. Funk and Edward Hines In favor of
the latter Senator Gore interrupted.
"Was the question of veracity between
the two passed on by the Union league
club?" he asked.
I believe It was, but that haa nothing
to do with the case,"
"In whose favor was the decision of
the club?" persisted Mr.. Gore.
It may . have been In favor of Mr.
Funk," responded the Washington sen
ator. "Just as ths decision by many out
side the senate seems to have decided
In his case. I repeat, however, that the
Union league club's .conclusions have
nothing to do with our proceedings."
Hines and Funk differed as to an al
leged conversation in., the Union league
club. Hlnes was recently expelled from

FAMOUS DECLARATION SAVED
How Manuscript ef the Immortal
Paper Escaped Destruction In
War of 1812
Comparatively few of the present gen
eratlcn know how near to being lost was
once the most precious of our national
documents, the Declaration of Inde
pendence. It was during the war of 1812.
The Declaration of Independence hung,
for many years, in a frame in the State
department; In the room -then occupied
by Stephen Pleasontoru' Mr. Beasely,
commissary of prisoners of war in London,-forwarded
to'the State department
some London newspapers stating that the
English fleets and transports were re
ceiving troops at Bordeaux, France, with
the-intention of operating against Wash
ington and Baltimore. Soon after It was
learned that the British fleet was In the
Chesapeake bay and that It was ascend
ing the Patuxent The officials' and
citizens of the little capital city Were
hourly expecting an attack.
Upon receipt of this information, which
was a few days before the enemy entered

of state, James Madison being president.

Small village on the Patuxent, where the
"Wtjsh .fptces. were.being landed, , and
climbed an eminence within a quarter of
a mile of the village, in order to ascertain
the strength of the enemy. Being con
yinoed after his inspection that we had
no force available that could successfully
resist them, he sent a note to Mr.
Pleasonton by a vldette, advising him to
flee that the best care was taken of the
books and papers of the State depart
ment Acting at once upon this authority Mr.
Pleasonton purchased some coarse linen
and had It made into bags of suitable

the office, placed the books and other
While engaged In this work General
Armstrong, then secretary of war, pass

his own office, remarked that he thought
they were unnecessarily alarming them
selves, as he did not think the British
were serious In their intentions of com
ing tJ Washington. Fortunately Mr.
Pleasonton was of a different opinion.
ana ODservea that it was the part of
prudence to take measures to preserve
these valuable papers of the revolutionary
government. Had Mr. Pleasonton de
layed but a few days, had he followed
the advice of the secretary of war, an
Irreparable loss would have been sus.
talned. For the papers which Mr.
Pleasonton had placed in the coarse linen
oags comprise! the secret Journals nt
congress, then not published: the cor.
responaence or uenerai Washington, his
commission, resigned at the close, of the
war; the .correspondence of General
Greene and: other officers of. the . revo
lution, ss well as laws, .treaties and cor
respondence of the Department of State,
rrom tne aaoptlon of the constitution
down to that time, .
Mr. Pleasonton had the bags carted to
a grist mill which he selected as a
suitable depository. The mill, which was
unoccupied, belonged to Edgar Patterson
and was situated on the Virginia side of
the Potomac, beyond the Chain bridge,
two miles above Georgetown.
The last load had left, and Mr. Pleasbn
ton waa just quitting the vacant rooms
when. . turning back suddenly to see
whether anything had' been left behind
to his consternation he saw the' Declara
tion of Independence, Which had been
overlooked, hanging 'npdn the. wall. He
hastily cut It out oftthe frame and.car
ried It away with' the other papers. ,
e tnen began to be uneasy about th
place he. had chosen, for ' If th Rri'tuh
took Washington, which he firmly be-
uevea mey would do. and verv imn
that., they would in all probability detach
a force for the purpose of destroying a
foundry for the making of cannon and
shot In the neighborhood, and -of Mr.
Wu!d consider a great mill too valuable
ainrag to De lett standing in a. country
they meant to subdue. Mr. Pleasonton
therefore, visited some of "thS .iri
farm houses, whose ; owners were oniv
too willing to loan' blm -Wagons In Which
to convey the documents to Tshiirr

were Deposited in an empty house." the
keys of which were given1 to Rev. Mr.

ton states In a letter, he retired early to
bed that night and slept soundly. Next
morning he was informed by the people
of the little tavern , where he had stayed

August 26 he found the publio buildings
still burning, and learned that the British
army had evacuated the city the preced
ing evening, in the belief that the Ameri
cans were again assembling in the rear
for the purpose Of cutting off their re
treat v s; . r
But as the British fleet still hovered in
the neighborhood and threatened Wash
ington with a second invasion, it was not
considered safe to bring' the papers of
the State 1 department ' back for' some
weeks. In the meantime Mr. Pleasonton
made occasional trips to Leesburg for

of state had occasion to' refer In the

MOTOR CARS OF THE KAISER
Transition ' from Well-Stocked Sta
. bles to the Gorgeous
Once upon a . time the Koenlglicher
Marshall, or royal stables, were the won
der of Berlin. Some of the most .beaut'
ful horses In the world had been gathered
for the emperor's service. But today the
stables have a different appearance. In
stead of hay lofts there are gasoline
tanks and pits Instead of stalls. For
Kaiser William haa turned from the
horse to the automobile. Only a few of
the horses have been retained, there still
being .a royal custom that the emperor's
coach shall be drawn by twelve or six
teen .pairs. Eight years ago, on. March
10, 1904, the kaiser for the first time
drove in is own. motor car from Be!l
vue palace In Berlin to-the new palac
in Potsiarri, It. was an occasion of greet
interest for the' court and the people. .. .
: But.Jp , the eight years, that- have
elapsed great changes have come about
Every time the kaiser would a-travellng
go he had to call for .the "Hoheniollern
special .. .train." . The Prussian exchequor
is not handled by, spendthrifts, and Wil
liam, kaiser though he was, was forced
to apply to the department, of railroad
for his fare.. Then again, there was the
danger of wreck and bomb. Altogether
the transition from steam coach to motor
car was . logical and comfortable. Thu
