History of Lorlmer Case.
For more than two years the fight
hns been on to oust William Lorlmer
from his seat In tho senate as a repre
sentative of the state of Illinois. A
constant newspaper agitation, investi
gations by two senate committees nnd
ono committee of the Illinois legisla
ture, millions of words of testimony
nnd scores ot speeches have kept tho
case of Lorltnor beforo tho public.
Charges nnd countercharges of brib
ery nnd corruption, cilmlnntion und
recrimination, Indictments, trials and
"confessions" galoro have filled tho
history of thu case.
Tho voto in the senate ended one
of the most sensational legislative Im
broglios that tho country has over
known. It begun on April 30, 1910,
about a year after tho election of Lor
Imor to the senato, with the publica
tion Iu the Chicago Trlbuno of a story
by Charles A, White, a member ot the
Illinois legislature, exposing corrup
tion In that body and charging that
Origin of "Mutt."
"Mutt" Is a contraction ot "mutton
head,' n tonn applied In ancient times
to nstupld fclow, equivalent to "dun

publication lias It thnt "Columbus

Rival of Pittsburg.
Because of tho constant pall of
smoko that hangs over it, tho oldor
portion of Edinburgh la known aa
Whlto had been bribed to vote for
Lorlmer for senator.
Lorlmer was elected by n combina
tion of DotnocrntB and Republicans in
the legislature. Shortly after tho pub
llcntlon of thu Whlto story, the now
senator nroso in tho senato chamber
und demanded an Investigation of his
election. A senato roinmltteo bended
by Senator Burrows (Republican,
Michigan) took up tho tusk. For near
ly four months, September to Decem
ber, 1010, tho committee took testi
mony nt Chlcngo and Washington, nnd
finally submitted a report exonerating
lorlmer. A minority report, however,
presented by Senntor Beverldgc of
Indlnna, sustained tho charges against

After a lengthy debate, In the course
of which Lorlmer delivered n sensa
tionally brilliant 'SP;ri defending
himself, the majority report was
adopted .by tho Benatu on March 1,
1911, by a voto of 40 to 40, five not
Meanwhile tho caso had startled
Illinois nnd the state was ablaze with
tho developments. Indictment after
Indictment wns found against tho
members of tho legislature which
elected Lorlmer. Whltu had "con
fessed" that ho was given $1,000 by
Representative Leo O'Nell Browne,
Democratic leader of tho legislature,
and $900 by Representative Robert O.
Wilson to votu for Lorlmcr. Browne
was Indicted for bribery. At his first
trial tho jury disagreed and at the sec
ond trial ho was acquitted. Charges
of jury bribing In connection with this
acquittal were made, but n Jury which
tried tho Jury bribery case disagreed.
Representatives Wilson and Michael
S. Link wero indicted for perjury.
The Illinois legislature took up the
senndul and tho "Holm" investigating
committee was appointed, after tho
United States sl-nnte had exonerated
Lorlmer. While this commission wan
In session, Clarenco S. Funk, genernl
munager ot tho International Harves
ter company, testified that ho bad

wealthy lumbermnn, who bnd been
closely Interested ill tho Lorlmcr casg
in the senate, to give $10,000 of a
$100,000 fund to help "put Lorlmer
over at Springfield." This created
another sensation nnd resulted in re
opening of thn caso In the sonate. A
special committee of eight began a ro
luvesllgatlon of tho case. Once more
tho Bordld stories of nlieged bribery
and corruption wero dragged out, and
once moro tho numerous "confessions''
made their appearance. Nearly 1C0
witnesses wero examined.
Conducts Own Defense.
Meantime Lorlmer, the calm-faced
object of the bitter attacks, took hla
place daily In the senate chamber and
conducted his own defense against the
charges that his place had been
Thu second committee, headed by
Senator Dillingham of Vermont,
brought In a majority report again ex
onerating Lorlmer and a minority re
port condemning htm. Again tho de

Throughout tho second Investiga

rapidly. At ono time bo was kept
at bis home In Chicago for weeks by
his falling heart, and his physician
flatly refused to allow him to return
to Washington. For this reason tho
consideration of tho second report In
tho senate was dolayed from week to
