the Voters' Will Shown in
Washington, June 23. To escape
the heat and noise the session of
the Lorimer Investigating committee
today was held in a room In the
basement qt the senate office build
ing. Former Senator Hopkins, who
was defeated when Lorimer was
elected, was the first witness. Hop
: kins told of efforts to keep his force
in line on the memorable day when
Lorimer was elected. One of the
men he went to see on the floor of
the house was Representative Lawr
ence. PREDICTED SCANDAL.
"When he told me he was going to
vote for Lorimer, I told him if he
did, he would not be able to con
vince the people he had not been
purchased." said Hopkins. "He said
he would .ote for Lorimer, but did
' not admit he was purchased."
Hopkins declared he knew of no
man "who could put a finger on corT
? rupt means used in Lorimer's elec
' tion." He declared the day Lorimer
was elected rumors of the use of
; money were in the air. "I under
stood Lorimer was using any instru
ment to defeat me," said Horkins.
Witness reiterated statements

Washington, June 23. Former Gov
ernor Yates of Illinois, who once ac
cused Governor Deneen of playing him
false In politics and sent a communi
cation to him through Senator Lorimer
that he was a "liar still," denied yester
j day on the witness stand before the
senate committee to investigate the
Lorimer election that he had ever
heard of the use of money in that elec
tion until more than a year afterwards.
Both he and George W. Hinman. edi
tor and publisher of the Chicago Inter
Ocean, the only other witness, pro
fessed the greatest friendship for Mr.
Ijorimer. Mr. Hinman expressed the
belief that there had been a "jack-pot"
or general corruption fund in tho
Springfield legislature for many years,
but he pointed to Mr. Lorimer's ene
mies as the probable contributors.
NO TALK "WITH HIXKS.
Mr. Tates emphatically denied he
ever had any conversation with Ed
ward Hines of Chicago over the long
distance telephone on the day Senator
Lorimer was elected regarding a cor
ruQtlon fund for Mr. Lorimer's, or re
carding any other fund. He was asked
if he had any political differences with
Senator Lorimer. He said he ha. In
regard to the governorship he said he
and his friends nominated Governor
Deneen. His feeling toward Governor
Deneen was more explicitly described
in a leter which Mr. Yates said he
wrote from Florida to Senator Lorimer
in 1909 advising that the newspapers
said Lorimer was going to elect Deneen
governor. "I told Senator Iorimer af
ter he had elected Governor Deneen
to call him aside and tell him he is a
'liar still.' and that I am the man who
Senator Kenyon expressed a desire
to know If he had told that to Gov
ernor Deneen face to face. He said
LORIMER WAS CONFIDENT.
Coming to the question of the Lori
mer election. Mr. Yates said that Mr.
Lorlmer told him personally that he
was likely to be elected, and that h j
did what he could for Lorimer in that
contest, but never heard anything of
money until long after tfe election.
Mr. Yates said the will of the major

Senator Kenyon says the first step
In the election of Mr. Lorimer was
the election of Edward G. Shurtleff as
speaker of the Illinois legislature. He
asked the witness if he himself had not
said on the night of Shurtleff's elec
tion, "this means the election of Lori
mer as senator."
Mr. Yates denied he had made sucft
a statement, but demanded who claim

Senator Kenyon asked if he had not

'Special Correspondence of The Argrus.)
Rochester, June 22. On recom
mendation of Mayor Hiram H. Ed
gerton the common council has ap
propriated $15,000 to supplement
the appropriation of the state of
New York for the entertainment of
the national encampment of the
Grand Army of the Republic which
Is to be held in Rochester, N. Y.,
Aug. 21 to 26 inclusive.
The executive committee, of which
Henry S. Redman Is at the head. Is
also securing subscriptions to the
fund and there will be money to
burn, figuratively speaking, for the
entertainment of the "old vets" and
the affiliated organizations during
the national encampment.
TWO BIO FEATl'HES.
Other cities that have entertained
the old soldiers In national encamp
ment have had some big features as
an attraction. Rochester will have
two attractions. The first will be
the magnificent electric display the
like of which has never been seen
in this country, with the exception
of the Pan-American exposition at
Buffalo. Work has already been
started on the erection of electric
canopies at all of the main street
intersections. There will be two sol
id miles of electric lights and the
city will be turned into a fairyland
of light and color.
The second feature of the big
event will take place during the pa
rade and will consist of firing bombs

12x15 feet in dimensions above the
heads of the spectators.
WILL, ECLIPSE OTHERS.
Reservations for the national en
campment are being made by every
state department and numberless
posts throughout the United States.
Enough reservations have been made
to indicate that the encampment In
Rochester will far eclipse any simi
lar affair of its kind in a decade. As
this is the 50th anniversary of the
marching away of the troops who
participated in the civil war, much
of the entertainment will be of an
anniversary nature, and the old vet
erans of Rochester together with the
citizens who make up the arrange-
ment committee say there will be
many surprises in store for the vis
itors. Exposition park is being re
modeled at a cost of $280,000 and
the building will be completed in
time for the national encampment.
This will provide plenty of accom
modations for the thousands upon
thousands who may desire to come.
Rochester also has some of the larg
est hotels in the country and there
will be no lack of room for those
desiring to visit the Flower city for
