SENATE STRIPS
' OFF JUDGE ARCHIBALD

Five of the Thirteen Counts
Against Him.
By Associated Press.
WASHINGTON, Jan. 13 Robert
VY. Archbald 'of Scranton, Pi, for
29 years a jurist was adjudged guil
ty by the United States Senate of
"high crimes and misdemeanors"
Stripped of his office and forever
disqualified from holding positions
of public honor and trust.
Upon five of the thirteen charges
trought against him by the House,
Archbald was found guilty. On the
other eight he was found not guilty.
A majority of the Senate in some
cases was against him but failed
of the two-thirds necessary for con
viction. Any one of the five indict
ments of guilty was enough to
"bring about the punishment impos
ed. The vote on the first charge, in
fluencing corruptly the officials of
the Erie railroad to sell him the
"Katydid culm dump, resulted in his
conviction 68 to 5. Those voting
not guilty were Burnham, Catron,
Oliver, Paynter and Penrose.

"I will vote against any woman,"
replied Webb.
Hampton and Webb pressed Jon
