The action expected today was upon
"Resolved. That 'William Lorimer was
not duly and legally elected to a scat
in the senate cf the Ciiitcd States by
H. WiMKltiire of the state of Illinois."
The negative votes, therefore, would .
be cast by those who favor Lorimer's !
retention of his seat. The majority of
the senate voting in opposition to the i
resolution would effect' the confirming!
of Lorimer's title

Of course it was possible for a mem
ber of the committee on privileges and
clectlons. or any other senator for that
matter, to offer a substitute resolution
but Burrows announced today so far rs j
he was concerned the senate would
vote on the Beveridge measure. The
ligreement reached yesterday was in
tonnection with the Beveridge reso!u-!taI

have no desire to interfere with the ,
order of the senate as defined in tho j
