The seating of Lorimer as a Sen

United States Senators should be
elected by the people direct. Then
"jack-pot-," would not be potent.
This is the season of the year when

The Buffalo, N. Y., Enquirer, in
speaking of the Lorimer scandal,
wants l.o know "why should 'the
ablest man on the Democratic side'
make It his business to plead for two
days to save the Republican senator
whom several of the ablest Republi
can senateors say should be turned
Senator Root, in his speech in the
Lorimer scandal, challenged the
Senators to deny that in their hearts
they know "the whole movement of
the corrupt and venal crowd that fol
lowed I.orimer's agent Browne to the
vote, ought to be treated as no valid
basis fcr a seat in the Senate." That
was a porer.
The Spartanburg Journal is right
in its prediction that the country will
not be satisfied with the method by
which the senate defeated the direct
election of senators. It was done by
putting on an amendment which it
was known would cost the measure
enough votes to defeat it. The Sen
ate wili rectify the wrong when the
new Democrats are sworn in.
When the noble spirit of Zach
McGheo took its flight to the unseen
world, this old world was made poor
er. Zach McGhee's place can never
be fille L Some one else can take up
his everyday work where he left off,
but he had another work that no oth
er hands can take up. It must go
undone, and mankind is poorer De
cause the only one who could do it
has gone from among us.
Walter T. Reckling, a young man
of Colimbia, appeared before Judge
Copes and asked for an annulment of
a marr iage he had entered into with
Alma Williams, on the ground that
he was intoxicated at the time of the
marriage and that the woman took
advantage of his condition. Such
cases us this are becoming too com
mon, ?.nd some way should be found
to put a stop to them.
The Journal says "four old vet
erans, W. H. Kerr, magistrate at
Greenwood; James Rogers, magis
trate at Ninety Six; W. W. Purdy,
magistrate at Verdery; W. P. Dev
lin, magistrate at Bradley, have been
removed, not because of incompeten
cy or malfeasance in office, but sim
ply for the reason, we suppose, that
they did not vote for Mr. Blease."
Surelj' the Journal must be mistaken.

Every time anything is said about

demagogical claim that they are do

, The Loriraer Scandal.
By 'he aid of Democratic votes,
Loriiiivr who bribed his way to the
United States Senate, has be? 1 given
his seat by being copiously white
washed in a great speech by .Sena
tor Bailey, who forced a vote in
the case at this session of Congress.
Had the case gone over to the next
session of congress, when the new
Democratic Senators would have oc
cupied many of the seats now held
down by the stand pat Republican
friends of Lorimer, the vote would
have been different. Instead of Lori
mer being given the seat, it would
have been declared vacant and re
ferred back to the people of Illinois.
(Bailey knew this, and for some
reason, known only to himself, he
espoused the cause of the corrupt
Lorimer, and, discrediting the Dem
ocratic party, to which he claims to
belong, be fought to have the case
decided by the present Senate, which
is composed largely of Lorimer's
friends, so as they could give him a
good coat of white wash, as well as
the seat which he bought in the
United States Senate. No impartial
man can read all the testimony in
this scandal without comini to the
conclusion that by bribery and cor
ruption in the Illinois Legislature
was built up the majority vote which
placed Lorimer In the Senate of the
"In the flood of words poured out
to obscure this simple issue we have
had Lorimer himself describing the
youthful friendships with "Hinky
Dink" McKenna and "Manny" Abra
hams which, he says, explain why
fifty-three Democrats in the Illinois
joint legislative session voted for a
Republican as Senator. We have
had the sinuous sophistrj of Mr.
Bailey that seven votes proved cor
rupt do not vitiate Mr. Lorimer's ma
jority," is the way the New York
World puts it. Against this calcu
lated hysteria, against this amazing
exhibition of Senatorial cynicism in
the presence of confessed corruption,
we would recall to the public the
damning evidence brought out be
fore the investigating committee 01
the Illinois Legislature and the
courts of that State.
That evidence tells you how
Browne, the boss, and Abrahams,
the bell-wether, led fifty-three de
serting Democrats into the enemy's
lines just at the agreed-apon time
when the Republicans deserted their
own candidate for Mr. Lorimer; how
one member was bought with patron
age, as corruptly as if cash were
used; how Holtslaw deposited his
$2,500 bribe-money in his own bank;
how White, Link and Beckemeyei
confessed to taking bribes; how the
"jack-pot" was divided in St. Louis
?first $1,000 each to the faithful
and then a later dividend of $900;
how perjury was clumsily essayed to
hide the proof of bribery; how
Browne carried a large sum of mon
ey in "a blue belt around his waist,"
how bribery was so known and so
notorious in Springfield that it had
become a cheap joke to dozens of
degraded men. Read the extracts
we make from the evidence on the.
Bought Like Sheep.
The New York World says that
'Senator Bailey has advanced the ar
gument that seven men proved cor
rupt should not vitiate Lorimer's ma
jority. That majority consisted of
108 votes in a total of 202. To sup
port the argument Mr. Bailey does
not restore the corrupt Democratic
votes to the Democratic column,
where but for corruption they would
naturally have belonged, but wipes
them out altogether, leaving 101 to
"But no man in his senses believes
that there were only seven men cor
rupted. Fifty-three Democrats voted
for Lorimer; but only forty-eight
Republicans, until at the last mo
ment seven more came o^ sr. Nobody
can read the voluminous testimony
describing that pandemonium of leg
islative debauchery at Springfield
without disgust that any man should
rise in the Senate of the United
States to utter excuses for such a
sordid market of votes and of con
"And we are asked in the sight of
the whole world to accept a Senator
from Illinois whose credentials reek
of the most shameless fraud! It

corruption by which Lorimer's vote
was figured out?Addition, Division
and Silence. And the silence has
been broken until the whole country
rings with the scandal. Will the Sen
ate dare seat the "receptive candi
date" who at Springfield held daily
counsel with the buyer of votes, the
agent of the "jack-pot," the wearer
of the blue belt stuffed with bank
"I Amuse Myself."
In a certain French play a member
of fashionable society is asked how
; he spends his time. His reply is, "I
I amuse myself." That just about ex
1 presses the attitude of the rich fash
; ionable society in this country, or any
country for that matter. Its mem
bers have no conception of lif--? but
I to have a "good time." They love
I to spend money they do not earn,
I eat and drink the costPest food and
'wines, turn night into day and i?rat
jify the lowest tastes. Put such a life
i of dissipation fails to satisfy and if
: long continued it produces any
amount of unpleasantness and sense
I of failure. And this because all
through the process there has been
operating The law Of diminishing
j returns." Of course it is only fair
I to state that there are members in
j the rich fashionable society who do
jnot so live, but they are rare excep
tions. The South is not cursed yet
with that brand of society, for which
we should be duly thankful.
On the Safe Side.
It is a very easy thing to prophesy,
especially if one takes the precaution
to place the fulfillment of the proph
ecy some centuries hence, because in
that case no one now living will then
be on earth to 6how the truth or
falsity of the prediction. Very re
cently a noted dSvine said that in
25? years time this country would
have half the population of the earth.
But as an offset to that glowing pic
ture some scientist, specialist, or
other, gloomily predicts that in 250
years everybody in this country will
be insane or feeble-minded. As a
matter of fact neither prophec had
any real basis upon which to make
his forecast, each being moved, prob
ably, by his temperament and imag
ination. But anyway we all hope the
preacher and not the specialist may
It will be a good thing if closer
and more extensive trade relation*
between this country and the nations
to the south of us result from the
recent' Pan-American commercial
conference. There is certainly great
need of it for while Germany and
Great Britain are rapidly developing
their South American trade and their
ships are found in nevery porh the
United States commerce with the
Latin republics is small and her
ships are found in every port the
trouble usually with these confer
ences is that they arc marked more
by social functions and eloquent hue
empty compliments than by that
which is practical. It is very pleas
ant, no Joubt, ? to exchange good
wishes and enjoy hospitality but
something more tangible is required
for the expansion of trade.

The heaven to which Elijah was
taken by a whirlwind was the aerial
heaven. In which the birds fly. His
taking away after this manner was
to order to complete the typical fea
tures of his life, as we shall see. That
neither be nor Enoch went to heaven,
in the sense of passing into the heav
enly or spiritual state and into the
presence of God, is clearly testified to
by Jesus, who declared, "No man hath
ascended up to heaven, save he who
came down from heaven, even the Son
of man." (John 3:13.) Although of
Enoch it is declared that he was trans
lated that he should not see death, it
is noc stated that he was translated to
heaven. Where he now is no man

Elijah a Type of tho Church
As Melcbisedec (a King and Priest
at the time) represented or typified the
Church ir glory, so Bible students un
derstand that Elijah, the Prophet, typi
fied or represented the Church in the
flesh?this side the vail?from Jesus
to the present. Thus, long after Eli
Jab's death God, through tho Prophet,
declared to Israel, Behold, I send you
Elijah the Prophet before the great
and notable day of the Lord, and if he
do not turn the hearts of the Fathers
to the children, and the children to the
fathers, then the earth shall be smit
ten with a curse?a time of trouble
such as never was since there wus a
nation.?Malachi 4:3, G.
John the Baptist, as the forerunner
of Jesus in the flesh, typified this
greater Elijah (the Church In the
flesh), the forerunner of the Messiah
of glory. As John the Baptist did not
succeed in bringing the people into
harmony with the fathers (Abraham,
Isaac and Jacob, etc.), so likewise the
Church in the flesh, as God foresaw,
has not been successful in bringing
peace to the world.
As John the Baptist's failure with
Israel was followed by the overthrow
cf their national polity in A. D. 70. so
we believe, the failure of his antitype,
the Church in the flesh, to bring In
harmony and righteousness, is by Di
vine intention to be followed by the
world-wide trouble which will humble
man and prepare the way for the es
tablishment of the Messianic Kingdom.
Caught Up In a Whirlwind
Many Christians have not noticed
that there Is not only a difference be
tween the heavenly salvation, which
God has provided for the Church, and
the earthly restitution (Acts 3:19-21)
,_^ which God has
jjjBjgBll^Efc provided for the
world, but addi
tionally there are
:" two distinct
classes of the
?i to our attention
in the Bible.
First, we have
styled "The Body
of Christ," of
which Jesus Is
the Head. These
have the promise
that they shall sit with Christ in his
throne and be Judges of the world dur
ing the Messianic Kingdom. The oth
er class of saved ones on the spirit
plane the Scriptures designate a "great
company, whose number no one
knows." (Itev. 7:0.) These will serve
before the Throne.
Chariots and Horsemen of Fire
Having located Elijah as the type
of the "ulect" class, Bible Students are
inclined to consider Elisha as probably
a typical character; nlso a representa
tive of the greater spiritual class, the
The various instances in which Elijah
suggested to Elisha that ho should tar
ry behind are supposed to represent
the trials "and difficulties in the path
way of the Church here, which will
suggest to the "great company," Liie
Elisha class, that they continue not to
follow their more zealous brethren of
the Flijab class.
