PENROSE FACING !
Move to Impeach Senator for
Accepting Money From
THEY'RE CETTINC READY FOR THE
BIG BATTLES IN THE WAR
Pittsburgh. Pa.. Aug. 16. Boies Pen
rose. United Stat tenator from Penn-,
tylvania and header of the Taft forces'
In the Keystone state, is face to face I
with Impeachment on the charge of!
accepting money from the Standard j
Oil company to influence legislation Inj
ccngress. The charges are based upon 1
the recent publication in a magazine
of a series of letters to Penrose from j
Jchn D. Archbold which show that'
J25.0OO was paid to Penrose. j
Following the exposure, a state
vide right was waged on Senator Pen- j
rose, and yesterday William Fllnn, j
cloee friend of Theodore Roosevelt and
head of the progressive movement,
through his newspaper, the Pittsburgh
Leader, served notice on Penrose that
the- next state assembly would be giv
er, all the evidence and requested to
ask for his impeachment in the na
tional congress. j
So far Senator Penrose has made no ,
teply to the charges, but within the
la it few days be Las begun a. vigorous)
f.gbt to rcst control of the state leg
islature frcm Flinn, the only hope he
has of Averting the scandal. The pres
ent indications are that Flinn will be
In control and that the effort to im
peach the Taft boss will be carried
The "Archbold letters" as they be-j
canie known in the campaign of 19o8
when oth-r Pennsylvania office seek-1
tp were shown to have been paid j
money out of the treasury of the Stan-1
"ard Oil company, were written to,
Penrose as far bark as lSEt'J, and con-!

Expected That Case of Chicago
Lawyer Will Be Given to
Los Angeles, Aug. 16. Clarence S.
Darrow, who for the last three months j
has been on trial in the superior court
op an indictment charging bribery of j
jurors In the McNamara case,, gave J
the most brilliant oratorical effort yes-'
terday that ever has been herd in a!
local court. i
The speech was unusual and ren-1
dered by an unusual master of the !
English language. Darrow's logic was
profound, his argument effective and
the word pictures painted were at once
beautiful and sublime. He held his
audience spellbound from almost the '
moment he began speaking at 8:22
o'clock this morning until his final
plea, which was completed, as the
chimes of St. Vlbiana's cathedral, near
by, sounded the noon hour.
There was hardly a dry eye in the
courtroom when the famous labor law
yer of Chicago concluded his plead
ings. Two of the Jurors, Williams and
Lam mere, shed tears; Associate Coun
sel Appel sat at the attorneys' table',
and cried like a child and even Dis-j
trict Attorney Fredericks was visibly
At times Darrow used sarcasm, to be
followed in a few minutes by elo
quence. He waB one minute a child;
the next, a giant denouncing his ene
mies with fierce invectiva. Bit by
bit he analyzed the testimony which
had been presented against him and
denounced Detectives Franklin and
Harrington, the state's chief witnesses,
openly charging them with corruption,
treachery and perjury.
"Gentlemen of the jury," said Dar
row in making hie final plea, "the only
question you have to decide is whether
I gave Franklin $4,000 on the morn
ing of Nov. 28. You couldn't "have sat
here for three full months without hav-
, ing some idea about the truth of the
; evidence. Do you believe Franklin?
I Remember, I must be convicted be
' yond a reasonable doubt.
"If you convict me it must be on
j Franklin's statement that Nov. 28, Job
' Harriman gave me $4,000 and I gave
; it to him for the bribery."
i Just before concluding. Darrow re-)
! counted the events leading up to the
close of the McNamara case, and

GET HID OF RHEUMATISM
Rubbiny vrith liBimcfiU, blistering the affected parts, the application of
plasters, and other means of external treatment, are usually helpful in re
lieving the pvins and aches of Rheumatism. But such treatment does not
get rid of the disease, because it does not reach its source. Rheumatisih
comes from sn excess of uric acid in the blood. This acid acts as an irri
tant to the nerves, muscles and joists, and produces the inflammation
and swelling, and sharp cutting pains characteristic cf the trouble.
When the blood is overouraenei wua ur-.c acia
it grows thinner and poorer in nourishing quali
ties. Then Rheumatism becomes chronic and
not only a painful but a dangerous disease. You
can get rid of Rheumatism by purifying the blood
with S. S. S. This egetibl rsuiedy goes into the

The closing of Darrow's plea was

and care and responsibility, only to
be dragged to a court of justice and
made to stand trial for a most serious
"If you convict me. gentlemen,

To take the jury after Darrow's won

was the task of District Attorney Fred

final appeal for the prosecution.
Referring to Darrow's plea, Freder
