ALMOST CERTAIN TO PASS _?_?. Dillingham Plan to Prevail Over That of La Follette. ILLINOIS SENATOR SCORED Declared to Have Remained Inactive While Colleagues Writhed Un der Bribery Charges. - j A resolution providing for a second in vestigation of Senator Lorlmer's election and hi." right to a scat In the upper house of Congress will probably be passed thin afternoon. AcjJon on one of the resolu tion? now pending in the 8enate awaits 1 the conclusion of the speech Senator TjH toilette. begun yesterday afternoon. Before the Senate convened this after I noon it was generally predicted that the Dillingham resolution, rather than the I'? Follette resolution, would be passed. The Dillingham measure puts the inquiry in the hands of ttie Senate committee on privileges and elections, and a subcom mittee of that < ommittee will do the probing. The La Follette resolution would put the task In the hands of Ave of the new senators whose service began with this special session. Thinks He Had Knowledge. Senator I.a Follette's demand for a second investigation of the Lorimer case, begun yesterday afternoon and to be con cluded late this afternoon, is made not only on the record of the prior investi gation. but also upon the evidence brought out by the special committee of Investigation appointed by the Illinois state senate. Yesterday's speech was ( confined almost entirely to a discussion | 01 the origin of the charges and the re sults of the first inquiry. That Senator I.orimer must have had personal knowledge of the spending of money In his own behalf was the main contention made by the Wisconsin, sena tor. Thirty democratic senators had vot ed for Mr. l^orlmer, he declared, and these votes were cast by men who were under the leadership of Lee O'Neil Browne. I'ii^e arter pace of the testimony taken during the previous inquiry, he remarked. ! showed the closest associations between Mr. Lorimer. Speaker Shurtleff and Lee O'Nell Browne. "So, 1 say. I was convinced that Ix>ri mer had personal knowledge." Mr. I^a Follette continued. "It Is unconceivable that he could have been there without having personal knowledge. It could not have been otherwise." Review of the Case. .Mr. Iji Follette reviewed the Lorimer , case, citing the confessions of bribery in j the interest of Mr. Ijoriiner's election. ? "Is there, another senator against whom such an imputation could have been made who would not have risen in his seat and demanded an inquiry?" he ' asked. "Can you conceive of any man I holding such a trust as a seat in the ! Senate \v ho could sit here for weeks and months after his title had been im- j peached without saying something?" For three weeks. Mr. La Follette de- i clared. the Illinois senator had sat ab solutely silent?"the only member of the body who aj varently had not writhed under the public criticism." He attrib- ? ute.i the course of the Senate in falling 1 to act to a false sense of courtesy, with wnich, le sain, a system is veiled and cloaked with the result that the repre sentative chamber of the government Is being undermined. "But." said Mr. La Follette. "it went * along for almost four weeks until the ! "Hth of May, until there were mutlerings i in the cloakrooms that if Lorimer did not ! speak some one must speak for him. Then after another confession the Illinois sena- i tor took the floor. I say that these pro ceedings in themselves burn the brand ' Into this case." Prompted by Colleague. Mr. La Fol'.ette expressed confidence that Mr. Lorimer had been prompted to speak in his own defense by his colleague. Senator Cullom. and he paid a high trib ute to the venerable senator from Illi nois. "So long as I live 1 am going to cher- ' ish the conviction that Mr. Lorimer was J the only member of the Senate who would not have come forward the next morning with n demand that the charges be made j good." exclaimed Mr. La Follette. "I concede that now and then you can find instances of disregard of party af- ' fiiation." he said, but 1 say to you that any philosophic study will sliow that such votes were cast in circles of political change." One feature of Mr. La Follette's speech made the Senate sit up and tak.? particu lar notice. Recalling the vote In the Sen. ate last session by which Mr. Lorimer was cleared. Mr. La Follette read off the names of those who had voted for Mr. Lorimer and then the names of those who had voted against Mr. Lorimer. It was unique In the history of the upper house of Congress.

OPINION OF JOHN NORRIS Cheap Paper and Retention of Amer ican Industry Involved. PULP MONOPOLY IN CANADA i - Provinces Trying to Force Manu facturers in United States to Move Across Line. ? Only by the adoption of the paper ' claiup of the reciprocity agraement -wii li i Canada can cheap paper and the reten I tlon of the print paper industry in the [ t'nited State? he secured, according to John Norrlw. representinp the American Nerwspaper Publishers* Association, who appeared before the Senate finance com mittee today. Mr. Norris said that from present Indications these results cannot be obtained in any other way. "The Canadian provinces which control the raw material of paper manufacture," Mr. Norris said, "are trying to force American paper mills to move to the other side of the boundary line. They : have prohibited the exportation of pulp? wood from provincial land; they believe they can starve out the American paper makws. whose domestic supplies are nearly exhausted." Provinces in Control. Mr. Norris said that the dominion gov ernment of Canada has not adopted this policy of starvation, but that "the domin ion government is as powerless to atop the provinces from working out their pol icies of prohibition as the American gov ernment is with respect to the Pacific coast states in the matter of Japanese ex clusion, or the state of Minnesota in the regulation of its swamp lands." "In WOl," declared Mr. Norris, "the American papermakers had a chance to consummate an arrangement with Can ada whereby the supply of wood from the province of Quebec would be continued indefinitely. But the American Senate, at the Instigation of ex-Senator Hale and of the extreme "standpatters' among the papermakers, upset that arrangement and undertook to bulldoze the Canadian provinces so that it could force them 1>> the Imposition of retaliatory duties to let their pulp wood come into the I'nited States without restriction Instead of composing the situation, they provoked an ugly complication, to which the paper clause of the reciprocity treaty offers the only immediate and promising solu tion." Determined to Dictate Terms. Mr. Norris said the duty of 12 per ton proposed by th? Mann committee, which was satisfactory at that time to the Canadians, would not now he considered by them. He said that the provincial au thorities show grim determination in that the province of Quebec recently ref.ised to consider a proposition of free paper in exchange for free wood. They believe they have precipitated a situation which has put the American paper maker at their mercy, and they propose to bring the paper Industry to that province upon term? dictated by them. American paper makers, said Mr. Nor ris, own over 12,'JOO square miles of tim ber rights on the crown lands of yuel?ec, from which they cannot now ship wood pulp because of the prohibition of May 1. 1910. Mr. Norris referred to Gifford Pinchot's estimate three years a?o of the available supply of wood pulp timber in the Cnited States, which would last, as follows: New York state, eight and one-half years; Pennsylvania, nine years; Minnesota, nin*; years; Vermont, eleven years; New Hampshire, twenty-five years, and Maine, twenty-eight and one-half years. Pulp Obtained Abroad. Concluding. Mr. Norris said that nearly 4o per cent of the wood and pulp which the United States now uses as the raw material of cheap paper comes from abroad. "The paper Industry." he said, "paid $lf>.400,(TT4 to foreigners In the cal endar year 1 for pulp woods and pulp to keep American paper mills going. The consumers paid penalties of nSO.nOO in retaliatory duty because there was an adequate supply of free wood In ('nnada available for the needs of this market." Questioned by Senators. Mr. Norris was questioned by various menjbers of the committee as to the pur poses of the American Newspaper Pub lishers' Association. He declared that his work as chairman of the paper commit tee had been to do "missionary work among senators and in other places." The work all had been In the open, he added, no effort having been made to conceal anything. When Senator Smoot asked him If his bureau had not sent out various pam phlets urging the passage of the reci procity bill Senator Williams interrupted by asking: "You did not consider it any crime, did you, Mr. Norris. to send out literature in favor of placing things on th? free list?" "On the contrary." replied Mr. >Sorr1s When Mr Norris declared that the American Senate "undertook to bulldoze th*> Canadian provinces" Senators Bailey and Heyburn objected to the word "bull doze" and had it stricken from the rec ord.

DISTRICT MUST PAY | FOR KEEP OF HE ? I Decision of Controller Trace well Provides for Charge of $25,290.56. Replying to a request of the District Commissioners for decision of questions raised by the District auditor. Controller >f the Treasury Tracewell has Just an nounced that a charge of JJ5.290.iWi for the support of 1.399 patients at the Gov ernment Hospital for the Insane during the month of March may be paid out of the District of Columbia appropriations. Owing to many legal technicalities, the decision is lengthy, and considerable dis cussion is given to the relation of the District to those indigent patients who have an estate, but whose guardians fall to pay for their support at the asylum. The hospital has a bill of $1,381.40 against the District for seventy-seven of these patients, classed as Independent pa tients. Mr. Tracewell has Just ruled that the District appropriation is not available for the support of these patients. District to Pay the Bill. Regarding this phase of the contro versy he says: "By the appointment of a committee for such patients as have an estate but were committed to the hospital as In digent Insane, the District seeks, and properly so, to relieve itself from the burden of support. But if the committee falls to pay for the patient the patient must still, for a time, at least, be sup ported in the hospital, and that support must come, if at all. from the District appropriation." Then Is added several paragraphs set ting forth that the Commissioners should take legal action to force delinquent com mittees to pay for the support of their charges. _ _ ___ , LITTLETON SEES PERU I IN mil OF JUDGES Says Feature of Arizona Con stitution Strikes at Arch of Government. "It will strike from the splendid struc ture of free government the arch upon ; which it lias come to rest with unshak ! en confidence," Representative Martin \\*. Littleton of New York declared in the House today In an attack upon the re i call-of-JudKes feature of the Arizona constitution. I "The seasoned and staid traditions of ' impeachment are to be translated into a | trial by tumult." said Mr. Littleton. "The orderly processes of regulated justice are to be converted into sporadic assaults born of hate and disappointment. Disciplined by Besponsibility. "The dignified minister of the establish ed law. ennoble^ by the brandeur of his lofty station and disciplined by the pres sure of sober responsibility, is to be de graded by the impending threat and dls (tracted by the uncertainty of a precarious tenure. j ' The misguided or malignant passions of an unimportant fragment of the com munity may recklessly accuse the most stainless Judge and. by groundless charge, put suspicion in the place of rontidence and distrust in the place of faith." The lying litigant, baffled in an attempt to subsidize the court; the culpable con federate of the convicted criminal; the j corporate bandit, finally condemned by I the firm hand of an incorruptible court; J the agrarian agitator, always against i the substance and symbols of order; the reformed, whose righteous zeal and un balanced judgment make him at once the most attractive and most dangerous of man, the daring demagogue and the in I triguing political boss were mentioned by the speaker as amonp those who might be expected to exercise wrongfully the privilege of recall against just and ftar less Judges. Precedents Are Lacking. j "We look in vain for precedents," contin , ued Mr. Littleton, "for no people ever j dared to write such an example into their ! history. We make a fruitless search for ? comparisons, but the intelligent nations ' of the earth have only contrasts to offer. ! The examples of patriotism and courage | in the history of English-speaking people ' are those of the unterrified Judge hold ; ing together the almost dismembered gov ernments. We turn with unaffected pride to our own John Marshall, without whose genius and courage the history of our country might have been chronicles of contending states." Quoting from St. Luke, telling how 1*1 late, bending before the cries of the mob, j permitted Christ to be taken away and orucitled, the speaker concluded: "tiod forbid that the sam tuarles of the country of America shall ever be ravaged by the sibillant hiss of a mob, crying, 'Cru cify him. crucify him.'

"We need the money." This, in brief, is the explanation of the reason for the change in sentiment of the k vjrs and means committeemen. It is a question of revenue with them, pu.* a ?d stm ple. The abolition of ill duties on raw wool meant a clear i?js to the govern ment's revenues of #11.000,000 a year The ways and means committee Is responsible to the paople for the laws under which the revenues are raised for carrying on the ordinary expenses of the national government The e..m mitteemen held that It was no part ot their duty to report for enactment into law an economic policy which might create a deficit in the rever les at the end of the next year. Republicans Voted Outlay. They did not overlook the important fact that the expenditures for that year have already been provided for. and bv a republican t'ongress. The democrat of this Congress, it was contended while not being responsible for tb.? large expenditures authorized by a pre vious Congress, would be criticised IT they so amended the law uioh-r which the revenues are to be raised for that year as to create a deficit. It was contended in tin- committee discussions that a tariff for revenue is good democratic policy sum tioned b? all authorities, and that nowhere in th-? democratic policy is there requirement for abolition of tariff duties to a point where such action would be follow*] bv a deficit in the revenue. It is freelv stated about the Hons* that William .1 Bryan Is in thorough accord with this view, and that the efforts of the- committee to conserve the revenues, while at the same time fulfilling the democratic pledge to th^ people of reducing the. tariff, meet with his approval SAVED BY THE POLICE. ?Officers Form Wedge to Protect As sailant of Unarmed Negro.
