leged was -used to elect William
Lorimer, of Illinois, to the United
Stajn5enate, faced the Senate in
vestigating committee for more
tharufive Tiours yesterday.
Carefully led through the intri
cacies of his story by his counsel,
Judge Hynesj of Chicago,, who was
in turn assisted by Senator lori
mer's counsel, Judge Hanecy, Mr.
Hines denied" practically every as
sertion recently made on the witness-
stand by Clarence Sr Funk
and Wirt Cook.
1UES ACCUSES FUJCK.
The climax of Mr. Hines story was
reached when he calmly stated that it
was Funk who first suggested the rais
ing of a fund to reimburse "Senator Lori-
'lner for his election expenses. Funk, who
nad testified that Hines had asked him
ider. expresed!felesiretot inlv to be
introduced to the newvuthabr. but to
Contribute $10,000 for the reimbursement
of the latter for campaign expenses, ac
cording to Hines.
In only one Important particular did
his tesUmony agree with statements pre
viously advanced before the committee.
He told the committee of a series of con
ferences with Senator Aldrich over the
Illinois deadlock, of .a midnight confer
ence between "President Taft and Senator
Aldrich, which he (Hines) had refused
to attend, and stated that as a result of
ilhe last conference he had been author
ized "by Aldrich to telephone Lorimer at
Springfield, telling him that President
Taft and Senator Aldrich both deemed
It lmperathe to the party welfare that
Mr. Lorimer declare his candidacy.
Entirely Different Stories.
In practically every other Important de
tail Mr Hines testimony left, the com
mittee agasp at the yawning discrep
ancies between his story and those re
lated by the two roost important wit
nesses that had taken the stand before,
Messrs. Funk and Cook.
Earlier In his story. Mr Hines had de
nied jthat he had talked with Gov
Deneen from a room In the Grand Paclflo
Hotel, Chicago, telling the Illinois ex
ecuUve that Taft and Aldrich insisted on
Lorimer's election and that he (Hines)
would coTie down on the next train to
Springfield with all the money necessary
to put the election over. This, in sub
stance, was the conversation Cook said
ho heard Hines carry on over the long
distance telephone. Cook and several
other men ha ing been in the room at
tho time. Hines insisted that the tele
phone conversation Cook overheard was
tWith Lorimer and that the only conver
sation he had held with Deneen was from
& booth In a Chicago bank.
A Pocullnr Discrepancy
The strangest part of the conflict seems
to lie in the fact that although Cook
could not possibly have overheard tho
conversation which times claims was
carried on with Deneen from a telephone
booth, he detailed, as having been carried
on in his room in the Grand Pacific Hotel,
substantially the same conversation as
Hines admits he carried on with Deneen
from the privacy of the telephone booth.
Of course, in Hines recital of the con
versation In question, all mention of
money Is omitted.
Yesterday's sessions were by far the
roost Important and Interesting of the in-
vesUcation so far and attracted wide in
terest and a crowd that could not be
contained in the large hearing room.
Long before 10 o'clock, the hour set for
tho opening of the morning session, the
front row of chairs were crowded by
xnore than a score of -women and those
'me women were at hand T?hen tha
afternoon session opened at IJO o'clock.

The following statement was
Issued from the White HoussTast
"Tho fact with, reference to
President Taft's relations to Sen
ator Iiorf mar's election Is this:
"That during the tarfff fight
-gentlemen came o hfra aad ex-
Dressed their" Interest la passing
The tariff bill, and said that It
had been suggested from Illinois
that it would be wise for the
President to express an opinion
.in favor of the election of Mr.
Lorimer. He did not know Mr.
Lorimer well, although he knew
that he was an. Influential mem
ber of Congress, but he did know
'Senator Hopkins. He knew very
little about Illinois politics, but
expressed a desire that there
should be 'two Kepublrcan Sena-
tors frdm Illinois. But when "
asked to put that In the form of
a telegram urging the election of -Mr.
Lorimer he declined, tq. do so.
'The statement by Mr. Hines
that the President was anxious
for and was urging- the election
of Mr. Lorimer Js wholly un
founded." believed this action will be postponed,
as It is considered passible both Funk
and Cook will bo recalled to -the stand.
Offers to Snow Boole. .
Mr. Hines said that he was willing
to allow the committee to Investigate
all his records and books if they wished
to do so He produced many telegrams
and letters substantiating his testl
money. Mr. Hines' direct testimony
lasted all day. He will be cross-examined
to-day by counsel forfthe commit
At first, Mr. Hines testified. President
Taft and Senatbr Aldrich were merely
in favor of settling the Senatorial dead
lock in the Illinois legislature for five
months from January to May, 1909, by
the election of a Republican Senator.
Later, he- added, the President and Sen
ator Aldrich must have obtained infor
mation that Mr. Lorimer was the only
candidate upon whom the opposing fac
tions could unite, and that they backed
Senator Lorimer's candidacy.
