PRESIDENT TO ASSIST
Names of Persons Engaged in

Wash ln?t on. D. C. May 30. The
senate yesterday afternoon voted
unanimously to direct an Investigation
Into the charge made by the president
that a lobby is in Wasnington :

The resolution. Introduced by Seu
ator Cummins of Iowa, was paBsed
lifter more than four ho-rs of hot de
bate, but after It had been amended
la such a way that Senator Root and
others declared It wag 'emasculated."
The reBdution has given the derao
tratic leaders a great deal of trouble.
They would glad.y have avoided the
Investigation, not because they feared
the disclosures, but because they real
ize It is likely to take up muih time
of the senate that might well be de
vcted to expediting the tariff bill.
But President Wilson showed no dis
porlticn to stand out against the in
vestigation. On the contrary, he sent i
word to his party leaders that he
would welcome the investigation and
stood ready to place at their disposal
information to back up his charges.
Wll.ftn TO M PP1.V ISFOWM TIO
The president avowed himself will
ing to supply names as well as In
formation. When these names are
disclosed, it Is likely a number of
democrats will be in the list, some
cf them former politicians.
fcarly yesterday morning 8entor
Simmons, chairman cf the finance
committee, let It be known the demr
rratg would advocate the investiga
tion, but would Insist cn amendments
to the resolution. These amehdoients
were mad before the resolution was
put on Its final passage. Senator
Kern, leader of the minority, proposed
the principal amendment, which,
after being modified by Senator Reed
of Missouri and Senator Lippltt ot
Rhode Island, was finally adopted by
a vote of 38 to 2S. the democrats vot
ing solidly for it and the republicans
voting against it. The amended reso
lution was then passed without a di
vision by a unanimous vote.
LEWI If A A III little JOKE.
Senator Penrose expressed the hope
that since tae resolution had been
modified so that senators would not
be required to disclose with whom
they had talked, that there would be
"no shrinking" on the part of senators
in the matter of furnishing informa
tion. "No one wou'd accuse the senator
from Pennsylvania of showing any
tendency towards 'shrinkage.' " piped
Fenator James Hamilton r.cwis. the
new democratic whip.
Kvldently Mr. Penrose did not grasp
this reference to his avoirdupois, tor
he began seriously to explain that he
was ready to make full disclosures.
Senator Lewis was evidently disap
pointed that his arrow had not lodged
and fie proceeded to explain his Joke.
"I was simply adverting to the fact
that the senator from Pennsylvania
csjnot be accuse of any tendency to
wards shrinkage." repeated Mr. Lewis.
During the debate there was a
clash between Senators Snermhu
Illinois and Williams of Mississippi.

three other men were wounded by
four masked bandits who held up the
pay wagons of the Illinois Zinc com

yesterday afttrnoon, but one of the
wounded men prevented the theft ot
$6,000 by making a wild drive under fire
of the robbers, who escaped.
Posses soon began searching the
country-side and messages were sent
to Springfield for bloodhounds. The

The masked bandits emerged from
the brush which lines the road and.
without warning the occupants of the
two buggies, opened fire. They were
equipped with automatic shotguns.
West and Richmond were in the
first buggy with the money". When
West was wounded he fell on the dash
board. Richmond lashed the horse
with his whip and the animal started
on a wild dash down the road. One
bandit, standing in the middle of the
road, continued to fire at the rig until
it got out of range.
FIRST SHOT KILLS DIERKS.
In the second buggy Dierks was
driving. The robbers' first shot killed
him. Oesterle seized the reins and
followed' Richmond's tactics.
When the bandits saw the first ve
hide escape with the money they fled
into fields and started toward Little
Rock, a settlement along the Illinois
river a mile north.
The pay vehicles continued on the
way to the main office, where the cash'
was turned over to the company of
ficials and the workmen were paid.
West was rushed to a doctor's office
in Utlca and cared for until further
help could arrive from La Salle. Then
