worked in her. It seemed a miracle.
But she was free. He could not touch her now or hurt her again. A load of pain had slipped from her shoulders. And George need never know. o-- A SLAM AT THE TRIBUNE AND THE NEWSPAPER TRUST Petitions urging William Lorimer to make the race for the United States Senate when Sen. Sherman's term expires are being circulated in the central part of the state. ' Oscar Thorelius, president of the Galesburg Republican Club, and a leader in downstate politics, is one of the men behind the present move. His petition, addressed to Lorimer, takes a rap at the trust press and par ticularly at the Chicago Tribune. It says in part: "We remind the public of the fact that the charges and suspicions which were directed against your election all emanated from a spiteful source, many of them were bought and paid for, and when run to earth were found to have originated in the office of the Chicago Tribune, a met ropolitan newspaper corporation "worth millions of dollars, whose con tinued absorption of wealth depended on your defeat; and we ask that these things be discussed before the people 'on the public platform and people permitted to say whether or not they will continue to have their govern ment and their officials dominated by such influence. "We would like to have a public discussion on the issue of Lorimer ism for the purpose of obtaining a definition of this much bandied term. To our minds Lorimerism stands for fidelity to promise and keep inviolate one's word. Jt exemplifies loyalty to friends and to principles and the truthful and fearless discussion of public questions." In a letter accompanying the peti tion, Thorelius also informs the peo ple of what he believes to have been the cause of Lorimer's defeat. "The Chicago newspaper trust and their political proteges have tried to wreck the Republican party by wronging Senator Lorimer. Mr. Lori mer goes among the people and talks to them face to face, and the plain, voting citizens like him and have confidence in him, despite the handi cap placed on him by the trust news paper owners, who deliberately plot to blacken his character. "Lorimer's place is already secure for all time to come among the ten greatest statesmen in Illinois history. Lorimer requires no vindication, but the shameless travesty on justice per petrated in Washington last year needs to be rebuked by the direct vote of the people." It is unknown whether the circu lating of the petitions is the first step in Lorimer's campaign or not. Lori mer could not be reached last night or today and it is impossible to state whether he approves of the petition or not. o o NOT WHAT MA WANTED Boy Boo-hoo!
