' Colonel Roosevelt's Latest Reply.
OYSTER BAY, July 11. "No honest
man who was put up as a republican
lector at the primaries last spring can
fall to record his vote against Mr.
Taft" ' ".'
This was Colonel Roosevelt's answer to
day to the charge that the new party is
violating its precept, "Thou shalt not
steal," by the announced intention of
having republican electors in certain
mates vote for him.
"There !s always something refresh
ing," said he, "when a pickpocket seeks
to distract attention from himself by
raising ,the cry of 'stop thief - with refer

picked." - ..; '-y

Orozco Says He Does
Not Want Aid from
Outside Mexico
JUAREZ, Mexico, July 11. In the same
custom house where 'President Taft once
met former President' Dias and where
four years ago Francisco I. Madero es
tablished his triumphant rebel govern
ment today sat General Pascual Orozco,
jr., weaving anew the tdrn threads of his
unsuccessful military campaign against
the federal government.
The rebel chief, while admitting his
defeat in an organized movement, made it
plain that the guerrljla warfare now be
ing planned was calculated to severely
harass the Mexican -government, but
contemplate neither friction nor alliance
with any foreign government.
Toward the United States, he said, he
entertained no 111 will. From nations
said to be friendly to his cause he added
that he wished no assistance.
"This is a. revolution by Mexicans and
for Mexicans," he explained, with empha
sis. "It is true that 'we have received
offers of assistance from abroad, but we
have rejected them." -Declaring
the Madero government had
circulated false stories to injure the rebel
cause, Orozco said:
'We do not want foreign complications.
Our fight is in Mexico alone."
Inconspicuously General Orozco has
come to Juarez,' the new rebel camp
from Enclnillas, ISO miles south, where
the outposts of the rebel army on the
Mexican Central railroad are now sta
tioned. In a, caboose, hauled by an engine,
the rebel commander made the journey
to Juarez, arriving in the darkness on
the outsorts of the town unheralded and
unknown to all except a few who secretly
met him there.
General Orozco conferred today with
his subordinates over a more effective
prosecution of the rebellion. Confident
and hopeful, he believes that by guerilla
warfare the government of Madero ulti
mately can be overthrown.
The campaign has been mapped out
Nine columns have gone in all directions,
some to the south, to attempt to cut
General Huerta's line of communication
from Chihuahua City to Juarez and other
westward toward the Mexican North
west railway where they "will attempt to
check the federal advance up that route
from Chihuahua and assist in the inva
sion of the state of Sonora.
Wisconsin Democrats
Invite La Toilette
Men to Join Them
MILWAUKEE, July 11,-Wisconsin
democracy opened its doors to the pro
gressives of all parties today, when Hu
bert O. Wolfe, temporary chairman of the
state convention in a keynote "speech ex
tended to followers of Senator La Fpl
lette an invitation to join them. Loud
oheering followed his direct, appeal to the
progressive republicans.; '' ! .J.
. "We say W you It'tt time to' come to
us,"" he said. "The republican party of
which you .at one time were go proud
is merely an old wreck. Its glories exist
in memory only. Modern Americanism
finds no expression in Its principle nor
its deeds. " We want you to forget ' old
labels and past habits."
Both Taft and Roosevelt were made the
subjects of attack. Reference to Roose
velt as the famous "lion slayer" pro
voked applause.
The convention adjourned until 7:30 to
night in order to give the committees an
opportunity to organize and . complete
their work.

forts of the rival delegation are to be
rewarded by a total of $10,000 in cash
prizes, this including the $1,000 for the

which, it was expected, would consume
practically the entire day, no session of

WASHINGTON, July 1L-The senate
took a recess at 8:30 p. m. until 10
o'clock tomorrow morning, when Senator
Lorlmer will conclude his speech and a
vote probably will be taken. The end
of today's session was brought about
by the senator's weakened physical condi
tion. WASHINGTON, July ll.-Senator Lorl
mer today began his speech defending
his right to his seat. He followed Sena
tor Reed of Missouri, who had made a
bitter attack on him and his election by
the Illinois legislature. ''' ' "
The senate chamber wa filled up slowly '"V
under the call for a quorum, but"6hJy
fifty-six senators answered to their
name. The senate galleries were 'not
half filled a Senator Lorlmer began his
speech, he read' from manuscript and his
voice was for' the first few sentence
somewhat Indistinct He declared he
proposed to give the ' senate an Insight
Into the character of the men who, ha
said, had tried to ruin him.
"It is true that the senate has the
right to deny me a seat In this body," he
began, "on the flimsiest pretext or no
pretext at all. . I intend to show that
no votes cast for me. wa influenced by
fraud. ,' , "- '
"Mr. President," he said in measured
tones, "this Is no joke. This Is a solemn
and serious question. If the senate de
cides to follow the views of the minority
of this investigation committee. It will be
a traversity on civilized jurisprudence, a
mockery on justice. It will be a declara
tion that the senate has decided to fol
low the red flag; that It has become the
advocate of anarchy; has adopted the
doctrine of the recall as advocated by Its
Attacks Chicago Papers.
Senator Lorlmer departed from his
manuscript for a moment to refer to the
Chicago newspapers. He declared cer
tain of the newspaper owner and pub
lishers there would be in prison If the
public prosecutors had been active.
The senate gave the Illinois senator
close attention. He spoke slowly and
with great emphasis. Finally he dis
carded his manuscript and took up a
place In the center aisle from which hb
could be heard on both sides of the
On the back walls of the chamber
were two diagrams of Chicago streets.
One showed the location of the Chicago
Tribune building with the valuation of
other property at Dearborn and Madison
streets; the other showed property on
Madison between LaSalle street ' and
Fifth avenue, comparing t.s assessed
valuation of the Chicago Dally News'
property and that adjoining.
From these diagrams Senator Lorlmer
made his attack on the Chicago news
papers which had opposed him.
Senator Lorlmer charged that while the
Tribune property was worth from $7,0C0.
CC0 to SIO.000,000, It paid taxes only on
$430,000. He called these newspapers
"robber of the public treasury of Chi
cago." He attacked Victor Lawson of
the News and charged that the New oc
cupied school land at a rental of SI per
square foot and paid no taxes, while less
valuable land across the street rented
for $3.50 per foot. 1
Mr. Lorlmer charged that Mr. Lawson
had secured unlawful reductions in the
taxes upon his home and business prop
erty and added that Mr. Lawson was try
ing to drive him out of public life.
"If 8tates Attorney Wayman would
treat Victor lawson as he would treat
William Lorlmer If he were the trans
gressor," he declared, "Victor Lawson
and the chief clerk in the assessor's of
fice would be in the penitentiary today
for conspiracy to commit fraud."
Senator Lorlmer launched Into a spir
ited attack upon Geovernor Deneen and
his fees in office as state attorney, t
"Some day the people of my state will
put into the state' attorney' office,"
he said, "a , man who will go through

wa" that" there should be no bromii or
yle JJjtf attschtd to fcuntrlbutlons, M t!!d.
Mr. Cortelyou told of one contribution
repected Under thHt rule.' .. i '
"A wealthy man tame to headquarter,"
he said, "with An offer" to contribute
somethng like $15,000 or , $20,000. , . As he
was not connected with 'any big business
we were glad to, get it. However, In turn
ing it over, he remarked that he hoped
he might be considered soma time for a
diplomatic post and in that event that
he ' would have the good will of -the
chairman of the committee.' I told him
that he had probably been misinformed
ns to how those things 'were done and
while 'I did' not want' him to misunder
stand, that we could not accept the con
tribution." : ' ' ' '
( "Ever : hear of any contribution 'from
the 'beef trust' ?", inquired ' Chairman

: Tobacco Check Refused.
Senator Clapp went through a list" of
"trusts" anil cams to the "tobacco trust. 4
"i remember distinctly that the to
bacco trust did not contribute," declared
Mr. Cortelyou. "About that time the
treasury department made a ruling as
to tobacco Imports. ' Shortly afterwards
some tobacco people came in with a con
tribution. I Issued orders that no. con
tributions were to be received elthev
from tobacco combinations or Independ
ents. 'I did not think It proper."
"Who was the party!" asked Senator
Lea. . -
"1 do not recall."
The contribution, Mr. Co:teIou thought,
was approximately fcaj.OOO or $a0,o:0.
Chairman Clapp asked Mr. Cortelyou
about a contribution from the late Ed
ward Harrlman. : Mr. Cortelyou said ho
heard a contribution - was made, but this
was at .the close of . the campaign while
he was at Chicago, lie mid he never
inquired about the matter.
; - Does IVot Remember Details.
Senator Clapp asked about a long list
gf possible contributors, but Mr. Cortel
you could give no information In regard
to them. ; '...'.! - -
, "Some believe all a chairman does is to
raise money,"' said Mr. Cortelyou. "It
Is not. He has other business."
He said he knew of some contributions
around $10,000. Several of them; he said
were from women, whom lie believed
contributed because of long Interest in
the party or through sentimental reasons.
So far as he knew they were not In
terested In trusts. He estimated between
TOO and 300 persons were used to collect
money.- He said ' that contribution
books were distributed and many anony
mous contributions were made, "just as
to charitable, religious or social organi
zations." '.---.-"!
