CLEVELAND, Ohio, May 20. At the
close of the fiercest Presidential dele
Bate campaign ever contested In
Ohio, President Taft and Theodore
Roosevelt tod&y expressed equal con
fidence In the result o the State
wide primaries tomorrow. In the final
dash for the victory, the two princi
pal candidates were joined today by
Senator Robert M. La Follette, who

national delegated only1 In districts
covering Cleveland, Toledo, and Co
lumbus. Taft struck out from Cincinnati
early today scheduled to make
speeches before closing the preprinj
ary campaign tonight at Dayton.
Roosevelt appeared first at Marietta,
having made a night run from Cleve
land where he spent Sunday at the
home of James R. Garfield. The Pres
ident spent a day of rest yesterday
with his brother, Charles P. Taft, in
Cincinnati. La Follette conferred
yesterday with Republican progress
ives supporting him in Cleveland. He
will close his campaign here tonight.
By votlig for Presidential tiele
gates, Republican votors In Ohio to
morrow will have what Is their near
est approach to a Presidential pref
erence election. However, both Taft
and Roosevelt today had doubts aB to
the outcome on tno contusion expect

The name of neither candidate will
appear on the ballot and unless the
voter Is sure of his delegates he
may vote for another than his choice
Early in the campaign a hot fight
was waged over this point by the
supporters of Taft and RQOsevelt. The
State central committee, strongly
favoring the President, succeeded In

free preference election. On the bal

the regulars of the State.
Governor Wilson has not personally
worked In Ohio for his Indorsement. He
made a few speeches bIx weeks ago.
Since then Bryan has toured theState,

district In support of the New Jersey
executive. Bryan held up Harmon as

Taft confined his last day's efforts to
the southwestern part of the State,
speaking at Hamilton, Eaton, Richmond,
Greenville. Plqua, Troy, Tippecanoe,
Xenla, and Dayton.
The SDectacle of a President of thn
United States campaigning through an
entire State, denouncing the candidacy
of a rival, an ex-President, was a new
and startling sensation, not alone In
Ohio, but throughout the country.
Roosevelt has told his audiences that
Taft lacks courage, is devoid of sym
pathy for the masses, has failed to keep
his pledges, and Is "puzzlc-wltted."

Some of the confusion prevailing In

A striiRslo Is on between factions In

TAFT ENDS CAMPAIGN
WITH DAYTON SPEECH
President Looks Happy On Final
Day Of Tour In Home
HAMILTON, Ohio, May 20. Smiling
jovially and apparently confident of
the verdict which Ohio will render to
morrow In the Presidential primaries,
President Taft today wound up the
campaign In his home State. Leaving
Cincinnati early this morning, he made
his first speech here, holding up his
Administration as one, conducted in
the interest of the people, and assail

Today's program called for other
speeches at Eaton, Greenville, Piqua,
Troy, Tippecanoe, Dayton, Xenla, clos

Both the Roosevelt and Taft man
agers are perfecting plans for throw

Colonel Roosevelt will spend as much
time as possible In the State, and other
(Roosevelt speakers who aro now being
scheduled for strenuous tours lncludo
Senator Clapp of Minnesota, Congress
man Murdock of Kansas, Senator Poln
dexter of Washington, and a long list
of others. Tho Taft forces expect to
be just as vigorous In their effort to
get their case presented from plat
forms all over the State. The news Is
highly encouraging to Roosevelt authorities.
The recent upheaval in Atlantic City,
where the town boss has been prose
cuted and where tho citizens havo
adopted the commission form of gov
ernment in order to get rid of the
graft Imposed by the very elements
that aro making the fight In that com
munity against Roosevelt, Is sugges
tive of developing conditions.
Arkansas Is continuing Its middle-of-the-road
policy In certain districts. In
the hope of being able to reach a band
wagon and save tho Federal Jobs of the
old machine. The Sixth Congressional
district yesterday chose two delegates
to Chicago, without a split or a con
test, and did It by reason of agreement
that they should be unlnstructed. This
Is the Hot Springs district. The delega
tion Is counted likely to support Roosevelt.
In the Fourth district, on the other
hand, tho Roosevelt forces elected two
Roosevelt delegates, and the Taft people
promptly bolted and organized an oppo
sition, naming two contesting delegates.
Capt. J. H. Gregory, treasurer of the
national Roosevelt committee, received
word that the Florida convention at
Jacksonville, which claims to be the
regular one, has elected him a delegatc-at-large.
Florida Is his home State, and
his friends put through his election "as
a compliment to his position and labors,
without any campaign whatever by him.
The last district convention In Okla
homa was held Saturday, and Instructed
Its two delegates for Roosevelt. There
were 109 Roosevelt and seven Taft dele
, gates in the convention, and there was
no suggestion of contest.
This gives Roosevelt eighteen of the
twenty delegates from the State.

"Your committee Is of the opinion
that all Issues touching the election and.
qualifications of William Lorlmer weie
finally adjudicated by the 8enate March
1, 1911, recognizing the right of Mr.
Lorlmer to retain his seat In the Senate,
and its action Is a bar to any further
proceedings In tno Senate."
Public hearings occupied actually 102
working days, according to the report.
One hundred and clghtv witnesses testi
fied, and the record contains 8,688 print
"The committee desires to call atten
tion to tho fact," the report states,
"well known to the Senate, but appar
ently unknown to a largo proportion of
me people, that the investigation was
not complicated by any charges In
volving Mr. Lorlmer's prlvato char
acter, tho discharge of his public du
ties, or any other charge upon which
his expulsion from tho Senate could be
"Tho only Issue Involved was to Inves
tigate whether the election of William
Lorlmer was due to corrupt practices."
Tho committee's report devotes eleven
pages to a discussion and exoneration
of Edward Hines, and tho chnrges that
ho told Clarence 8. Funk that a "slush
fund" of $100,000 had boen raised to
elect Lorlmer. Pago after page Is oc
cupied in a long account of the Im
portance of breaking tho deadlock In
the Illinois Legislature on the Senator
ship In order to get a vote for protec
tive tariff. Lorlmer, tho report pro
ceeds, seemed to be the only 'man who
could break the deadlock, and limes.
Interested In the tariff on lumber, the
Senators say, procured the approval of
the President and Senators Aldrlch and
Penrose to Lorlmer's selection
The report discards the testimony of
William Burgess, who claimed C F.
Wiehe, secretary of tho Hines Lorlmer
Company, had admitted on a train that
he contributed to a "slush fund." It
holds there was no evidence of a legis
lative Jackpot in the Legislature. Con
gressman Charles A. White's charges of
corrupt methods in the Senatorial elec
tion were denounced as unworthy of
Result of Conditions.
The majority of the committee finds
nothing In connection with Lorlmer's
own actions In connection with his
election which it thinks can bo "Just
ly criticised;" It holds his election
war thn result of nolltlcal conditions
in Illinois, ana it aeciares iorimer a
personal character 1b above reproach.
The following passage from the ro-
port bears on i,orimcr s cnaracier:
"Tho committee patiently listened to
a large number of witnesses, with
equal patience have studied tho tes
timony, and havo carefully and, thny
think, judicially considered the same;
It finds no ovldence that in the elec
tion of William Lorlmer as a Senator
of the United States from the State
of Illinois corrupt methods or prac
tices were employed, and It Is a fact
that ought not to be overlooked or
go unnoticed, that nowhere In the
entire mass of testimony Is there any
evidence showing that Mr. Lorlmer,
by word or by net. ever sold or did
anything In connection with his elec
tion by the Legislature of Illinois
which can be Juatlv criticised.
"One thing stands out most conspicu
ously, this wholo record considered, and
that is that throughout the long dead
lock and all the pressure, tomptatlons,
opportunities, strain, and excitement In
cident to the election of a Senator, not
withstanding the persistent effort made
to fasten something of the kind on Mr.
Lorlmer, not one word was said or one
thing done which In any wise reflected
"Not an Indiscreet remark, not a sus
picious suggestion, not an Improper ac
tion or an impropriety on his part. In
Springfield or elsewhere, during that
contest has been testified to by a single
witness. The fact is, the personal In
tegrlly, the habits, and life of Mr. Lorl
mer appeared wholly exemplary, and his
personal character above reproach. His
most relentless political enemies con
cede that. The Tribune, the morning
after his election, editorially spoke of
his 'many merits' and 'ability.' "
The minority report, signed oy Sena
tors Lea, Kern, and Kcnyon, was intro
duced In tho Senate this afternoon. It
holds that corrupt methods and prac
tices in the Senatorial election Invali
dates Lorlmer's sclcctlton. The repor
"Believing that the confessions of
members of the legislature, , strength
ened by corroborating circumstances
and by other evidence relating to mem
bers of the legislature who did not con
fess, established conclusively not only
that at least ten votes were purchased
for the purpose of electing William
Lorlmer to the Senate, but that the
record reeks and teems with evidence
of a general scheme of corruption, we
have no hesitancy In stating that In
vestigation establishes beyond contra
diction that the election of William
Lorlmer was obtained by corrupt

by the department show that within a
few months n fly may become the pro

destruction of a single Insect now will
accomplish more good results than
wholesale destruction later.
' Householders arc advised also by the
Health Department to keep their gar

screened, and their premises In cleanly
conditions. Files breed In filth, and
their direct coureo Is from tho garbage

kept covered, In the opinion of the
health officials, there will be fewer files
and less work for tho contagious disease
The regulations regarding screening of

announced today by the Health De
partment, will be strictly enforced.
