JUDGE ARCHBALD DELAYED
Washington, July 13. It has been

Crawford, of which the latter was
fully acquitted. He read an affidavit
which charged Crawford with having
employed a man to file a public land
claim In his interest.
"That's supposed to be a sworn
statement," said Iorimer. "But all the
circumstances surrounding it deny its
truth. A federal grand jury cleansed
the ekirts of this senator." He de
clared the aftldavit itself had no foun

rll TWO YEAR V FlfiUT.
For more than two years the fight
had been on to oust William Lori
mer from his seat in the senate as
a representative of the state of Hii
ro's. A constant newspaper agita
tion. Investigations by two senate
committees and one committee of the
Illlncis legislature, millions of words
of testimony and scores of speeches
;ates were leaving for their
homes. Because of this the proposal
to chance the name of the party was
not taken up for general discussion
iand action. A. J. Orem of Massachu
.-ttts in a brief speech promised to
, pledse more money to the campaign
1;;m should the name he changed.
'1 bviieve we could make the ram
i paign fund double if we should adopt
a new name," said Mr. Orem. "We
' would be greatly aided in carrying our
, banner to success if we should adopt
! the name 'progressive:"
There were many shouts of protest
to this as well as to the name 'Con
servation party," suggested by Rev. S.
ill. Taft of California.
The convention adjourned pfter a
wrangle over a proposed change In
the representation on the national!
committee. A proposal that Instead j
or t-acn 6tate naving two representa
tives on the national committee the
representation be according to the
t-ize of the prohibition vote, one mem
ber for each 5.O00 votes, aroused con
siderable opposition. The matter was

Franklin's testimony that he had no
transactions with John H. Harrington,
the chief Investigator of the McN'ama

Fern Kernoghan, a former stenogra

defense. She testified to having seen
both in consultation frequently.
The .prosecution objected to Attor

ground that he could not tell of his
