Loud Talk and Gossip Pointed Out
as Evils to Be Shunned by
Chicago, Nov. 20. The "gushy" girl,
the lazy one, the gossip, the girl who
values silk petticoats above the com
fort of her parents, all fall under the
ban of Rev. William B. Millard's latest
"ten commandments," issued yester
day in a sermon at the Morgan Park
Congregation church. They are called
the "Ten Commandments for Daugh
ters." Here they are:
I. Thou shalt not deceive thy moth-
II- Thou shalt not exchange the
bloom of innocence for the riv0r and
contempt of any man.
III. Thou shalt not esteem silk pet-
; ticoats and diamond rfng as of greater
' value than the family's general vrel-
IV. Thou shalt rot regard flattery
and fa3e pretenses as the highway to
v. Thou shalt not gossip.
yI Thou shalt not use loud speech
nnr hnlrl mannpr to attract attpntion.
VII. Thou shalt not think ir.ore of
the culture of thy heels than thy head.
VIII. Thou-thalt not hold the cup to
thy brother's lips; much less to the
X. Thou shalt find joy In the ser
vice of iod who created thee.
Dr. Millard supplemented each "com
mandment" with an epigramaMc ex
planation. "Few things," he said, "are more re
pellant than a gusher. Compliments,
like kisses, lose their value as oon as
they become promiscuous.

HUGHES TELLS OF
HIS DOINGS HERE
Business Associate of Lorimer
Gives Details of Rock Is
CAMPAIGN IS A QUIET ONE
Declares Man Subsequently Elected
Had No Knowledge of His
Work for HJm.
Chicago, Nov. 20. Lack of witnesses
delayed today's session of the commit
tee investigating the Lorimer election.
The committee held an executive ses
sion to determine what witnesses are
to be called before adjournment Wed
nesday. Representative Alschuler told tho
committee he voted for Lorimer be
cause of an agreement with Lee
O'Neill Browne to oppose Hopkins'
candidacy, and that this opposition be
came effective when he voted for Lori
mer. Attorney Healy Saturday Interrogat
ed J. J. Hughes, business associate of
Senator Lorimer, closely about his
visit to Rock Island and Moline.
When he reached tho twin-cities he
saw Patrick Walsh, who had been as
sociated in railroad construction work
with Mr. Lorimer, and P. F. McCarthy,
tuiother friend of Mr. I-iorimer.
IHlE FROM LAXDEB.
Both these men knew State Senator
Iandee and Representative Wheelan
from that legislative district. The wit
ness was not acquainted with either
of these men, Hughes said Landee, In
spite of the fact th?.t they wore strang
ers, learned he was in Rock Island and
telephoned to the hotel where he was
taking dinner and made an engagement
with him for that evening.
Senator Kern called attention to the
testimony of the witness of the day be
fore, wherein tho latter said landee
phoned to Hughes at the hotel in Mo
line. The witness said the latter state
ment was correct.
IIIT kxoyv of irrvES activity.
Hughes testified that In company
with McCarthy ho called upon Samuel
S. Davis, a son-in-law of Frederick
Weyerhaeuser, to whom Edward Hines
had telephoned from Washington,
Neither he nor McCarthy knew Davis
and the witness denied he had any
knowledge of tho 1 lines comuiunlca
tion. He-fxpfcrMed that In order to Identify"
himself during the conversation with
Davis, he referred him to Walsh. He
urged Davis to use his influence to get
the representatives from the Rock Is
land district to vote for lorimer, but
Davis was unwilling to do so for the
reason that the names of these men
were far up on the alphabetical list
and they would have to bear the bur
den of Ftarting the movement for Lor
imt r's election.
HAZY OX JIEX HE 8 V.
Hughes said he talked with every
member of the legislature he eaw, but
could give no names or recall any con
versation outsido of landee and
Wheelan. Senator Fletcher brought
out that the corporation of which Mr.
Iorimer and the witness are officers
paid all the hitter's expenses through
the state when he advocated Lorimer's
election. Ho insisted, however, that
this action was incidental to his con
duct of his usual routine work.
Hughes told of his visit to Wheelan
In company with Walsh, of the conver
sation which took place, and of Wheel-'
au's announced purpose at this meeting
to vote for lorimer if sufficient other
democrats did so to assure the elec
tion. As to the arguments used with
Wheelan, he mentioned the tariff.
