A FAIR DIVISION
Premature Operations of the State Legislature,
NICE POINTS RAISED
IN HER CASE
Question Arises as lo "Whether
Two-thirds or Majority Neces
sary to Unseat.
INVOLVES ACT OF BRIBERY
"Wording of Resolution AV ill De
termine Manner of Conducting
WASHINGTON, Jan. 6. Whether It
would require a two-thirds vote or only
a majority of the senato to unseat Mr.
Lorlmor as a senator from Illinois is a
question that has arisen In the contest'
about to be waged. The matter depends
upon whether the opposition to Lorimer
seeks to connect him with any corrupt
practices or merely attempts lo show
that he was the beneficiary of corruption
for which he was not responsible.
Senators who havo made close studies
of election contest cases seem lo agree
thai If the resolution to unseat Mr. Lorl-
mer should contend that he was princi
pally Involved In the bribery charges
that havo been investigated, the only
course would bo to vote on tho question
of expulsion, to carry which two-thirds
of the senate would havo to bo recorded
in tho affirmative.
If the motion were to declare the elec
tion of Mr. Lorimer Invalid and void, and
it was admitted there was no evidence
to connect, him with the bribery, only a
majority vole of a quorum of tho senate
would be required to adopt tho motion.
Wherein Difference Lies.
Under the first situation, or that which
would connect a senator principally with
corrupt practices. It Is said the contest
must be between the senate and tho In
dividual senator under charges, while In
tho second caso tho contest would be be
tween the senato and the legislaturo
which elected, or the governor who ap
pointed, the senator involved.
It now looks as if tho tight would be
opened In the senate on Monday. Al
though Senator Beverldgo ha3 not yet
admitted that ho Intends lo file a minor
ity report from the committee on privi
leges and elections., tho general under
standing Is that ho will do so and t.hut
he will speak upon It In advance of Sen
ator Owen of Oklahoma, who had an
nounced his Intention to spoak yesterday,
hut was prevented by. adjournment.
Some Want to Feel Pulse.
Tho Beverldgo report Is expected lo
provide the means for a. division of senti
ment for and against Lorlmor. Some of
tlie senators favorable to Lorlmor have
said the case ought to go over for a few
weeks, that the sentiment of the country
might bo ascertained, but others arguo
that sentiment has nothing to do with
the caso and that tho senate must now
sit in Judgment und decide the matter
upon the evidence.
A postponement of consideration only
could be had with unanimous consent, as
the questions Involved In (ho proceed
ing arc of the highest privilege and may
bo called up at any time by any sen
ator. If the case Is opened on Monday, as
seems likely, the general Impression Is
that It will continue until disposition is
made of It.

W. W. Armstrong There Is no question 9
In my judgment, but the business men HI
of Salt Lake City In general arc In fl 9:
better condition today than they HI
have been in a number of years past. Bf
While tlie year 1910 was a n,ulct one. mwM
trade sales In nearly all cases have iBa
been up with those of 1900. and ecpn- fnV
omy and retrenchment have been the IBV
order of the dav throughout the en-
tire year. The" result Is, no doubt. ij
shown In Increase of profit and a
healthy, normal, wholesome cpndl- mYfL
lion of business In general. The out- Hffi
look for the coming season could not Hi's
he better to the man of business. To Blw
the business man who Is furnishing jBitf
necessities or those commodities 'wmM
which go to equip our mines, our MrffiJ
mills and our farms, the outlook 13 BMgt
very bright, bill to the business man S
who caters to the luxuries or the wi'M
speculatlvo desires of the people, the ffin

Rodney T. Badger Business conditions ffiifl
are all right. The quietude of tho JW

speaking, conditions are excellent and ff&
the outlook for a prosperous year de- wa
cidedly favorable. Bfilf
C. S. Burton T do not know of anything 4
which could be viewed with alarm or Ifi
which might tend to produce any un-
easiness with reference to financial H iRi
conditions cither locally or In the M jm
country at large. On tho other hand, M-i!
I do know that conditions are good iff SI
nnd that the country Is decidedly MS
prosperous. It Is true, perhaps, that 9(n
locally the past year has not been jBJ
as prosperous as other years, but that 911,
Is a condition which is rapidly ad- &jf
Justing itself, and It Is one which
should occasion no concern. Money
Is easy throughout the United Slates. fS
There Is no trouble in the great Hjt
money centers of New York and Chi- mi a
cago. Money recently dropped from 6
per cent to 4 rJi cent, which Is a Mrr
certain Indication of prosperity. 1
H. P. Clark I consider, tho business out- jMvj

The crop production for 1310 was the ffl
greatest In tijie history of the coun- mj

and active interest Is being taken, Ml.
which promises a sreat revival in Sf
that field. Local business conditions Ml-'
show a marked improvement since H;
the holidays. I ca,n see no reason Mi
why 1911 should not bo ono of the
most prosperous years In the history

W, S. McCornlck General business con- wj

which might occasion any concern m' s
with reference to local business con- tm

an open winter, with tho natural re- jjfcji
