President James S. Sherman returns to
Washington to-morrow from Chicago
it is hoped hero that he will bring with
him tho resignation of William Lorimer
as Senator. It was for tills specific pur
pose that the Vlce-Prosdent Journeyed to
Chicago yesterday. This accounts for
the mystery surrounding his departure.
It was planned so that Mr. Sherman's

but in some way the information got
abroad, that no had gone to Chicago
and it was surmised that his business

Tlio Vice-President undertook the trip
reluctantly in respnae to the urgent re
quest of Senator I.orimer's Republican
colleagues nnd after some of tho Senator's
friends in Chicago, who were anxious to
have bini resign, had appealed to Mr.
Sherman to use his personal Influence with
Senator Lorimer to extract a resignation
from, him It is by no means certain that
the Vice-President's commission will be
successful. Uiittsua 1 pressure has been
brought to bear on Senator Lorimer by
his family, his counsel, Judge Hanecy,
liis family physician and many political
friends to Induce him to resign, but he has ,
persistently refused to do so, .
The friends and supporters of the Sen-
ator from Illinois are certain (hat he will
be ousted from his seat in tlio Senate if
the case comes to a vote. Careful polls

Senator Lorimer is now so ill at his

the Senate to postpone it vote on his case

Senator Iorimer's friends, who came hero
from Chicago for that purpose, but on the
