Senatorial Hearing to Begin
in Chicago; Review "of
the Noted Case.
Chicago. 111., Sept. 12. The third sen
sational congressional Investigation
j authorized" at the last session of con
gress will begin on September lo, when
the senate committee on privileges and
elections, of which senator Julius Cea-
sar Burrows of Michigan, is chairman,
will meet in this city for the purpose
of investigating the wholesale bribery ,
charges in connection with the election
of senator William Lorlmer of Illinois,
to the United States senate.
The Ballinger-Pinchot investigation
and the Gore inquiry into the sale of
indian lands in Oklahoma, have both
occupied the attention of congressional
committees, and have developed some
sensational testimony. It is not be
lieved, however, that the Lorimer in
quiry will be devoid of sensations.
The fact that Lee O'Xeil Browne, the
Democratic leader in the Illinois legis
lature, has been on trial charged with
bribing members of the legislature to
vote for Lorimer, has intensified the
interest in the investigation.
Charges that senator Lorimer, better
known as the "Blonde Boss,' had been
elected to tne Lntied States senate
,,., ,,,, via -iiniocaif hrihprv nnd cor
ruption of Illinois state senators and
representatives, were first flung to the
world on June 30. Since then there
have followed wholesale indictments
of men who are alleged to have paid
the bribe money in the Interests of
senator Lorimer. of men who accepted
it and of the decision of the United
States senate to investigate the charges
thoroughly to determine if the junior
j senator from Illinois should be allowed
to longer grace tnat august Douy wnn
his presnee. '
Election a Surprise.
The election of William Lorimer to
the United States senate was a matter
of speculative gossip for months be
fore representative Charles A. White, of
St. Clair county. III., began hawking
his story of how he had been bribed
to vote for Lorlmer, among the news-
j papers and magazines. Lorimer was

scene, afiter governor Deneen had re-
i fused to be a candidate, and was elect

After Lorimer had taken his seat in
Washington and everything appeared to
have settled back to a normal calm,
came the "confession" of representa
tive Charles A. White.
White plunged into his story with a
vengeance and within a few weeks al
most every politician in Illinois was
mixed up in the bribery scandal in
some way or other. The Democratic
politicians throughout the state were
