Frederick Lundin of Chicago, former represen tative In congress of the Sixth Illi nois district, furnished an interesting half hour today before the senate committee Investigating the Lorimer election, when he related some of the workings (if Illinois politics. He de clared that Governor Deneen wanted the senatorial toga, "but did not quite dare take it because his mas ters, the newspapers of Chicago, would not let him." The witness told the story of the fight on Senator Hopkins. "The object was to get several men voting for Hopkins to vote for some body else," lie said. "That would have made the deadlock secure, as it took votes away from a strong can didate, and that was what Deneen wanted. Deneen at that time saw no hope for Hopkins. Meanwhile Deneen wanted the senatorship. himself, but did not quite dare take it because hi" masters would not let him." "Who were Ills masters'.'" asked Senator Lea. "The newspapers of Chicago," said Lundin. "They probably thought Deneen could do them more good as governor than he could s a sena tor. While he was making up his mind t; w!'i' vi-'-m to hive 'ho deadlock" Continued, so he could keep anybody else from getting It. "Kveryhody thought Deneen whs for Lorimer, because all of Denecn's friends were," continued Lundin. "Do you think Deneen was working for Lorimer?" asked Senator Lea. "I think he was, because It served his best purpose at that time. I heard him Indicate It Indirectly. Ho old not feel thai all his friends had stood by him and he was willing to gather strength by a merger with the Lorimer men. Deneen was for Lori mer until there was a chance of his election and then he was against him."

The house presented a remarkable appearance, as Isaac A. Sherwood, the oldest member, and a former gen eral In the Union ranks, advocated the passage of his measure. Mem bers crowded about the open Hpace In front of the speaker's desk, sat in the aisles and hung over desks to gel within range of the voice ol the Ohio member, who had advocated the pen sion of one dollar a day since 11)07. The Sherwood bill would grant $lf, a month to those who served more than ninetv days but less than six months; 2Q a month for a service up to nine months; 2j a month for a service up to one year; and $.10 for n service of more than one year.

DESTRUCTION OF OF PLOT Ill-Fated Battleship Destroyed By Exterior Explosion is Finding of Naval Board of Inquiry. lily Murnluf Journal spre.al I.neil Wlre.J Washington. Deo. s. The United States luittleship Maine wlrlcfe; Sank beneath the waters of Havana' har bor in February, 1SHS as )i result of an explosion, was blown tip from the outside. This was announced today by the naval board that has leeh examining the wreck. The finding confirm!) the report of the original Investigators who made a superficial examination of the wreck soon after the disaster. The statement was given out by the navy department in brief. Secretary Meyer does not believe It necessary to Issue any extended ex planation of the board's conclusions, beyond the Mat statement that an ex terior explosion was responsible for the loss of the warship and the lives of the many men. The statement follows: "The board tlnils that the Injuries to the hot loin of the Maine were caused by the explosion of a charge of low form of explosives exterior lo Lie ship between frames 'JX and .'11, strake 11, port side. This resulted In igniting mid exploding tli,. contents of the six-Inch reserve magazines, A-M-.M, said contents Including a large quantity of black powder. The more or less complete explosion ot the contents of the remaining forward magazine followed. The mnga.lne explosion resulted in tho destruction of the vessel." Secretary Meyer announced that there might be a further statement on the report of the board after It had been considered by the president, one m iniber of the board was of the opinion that tho report never would be published In full but would be kept In lhe confidential flies of the navy department. The declaration that a low form of explosive was used In the outside explosion, indicates a belief that u mine and not a dirigible tor pedo wa,s the Instrument of destruc tion. This only deepens the mystery if" the destruction of the Maine. A mine charged with sufficient gunpowder to blow In the bottom ()f the ship muict have weighed several hundred pounds. To plant such a mine and lay the electric connections necessary for its discharge would have required the services of a number of men.' i:.i:tti r, omewt or MAIM: TO ItKTHtK Washington, Dec. 8.

Third, If the foregoing conditions ore accepted the government will grant provincial autonomy. These terms are considered large ly a bluff.
