for Some One to Defend
Illinois.
Washing! on. February 3.?Senator
Root, of New Fork, to-ddy leaped sud?
denly to a "position of leadership
among the antl-Lorjiner forces In the
Senate, and caused the cuko tempor?
arily to be lifted above the attack up?
on the individual, so a*? lb bare the
blot upon the name, of the Slate of
Illinois. When Mr. Root concluded,
Senator Male, the veteran Republican
leader of the Senate pleaded with
tremulous voice, for some friend of the
State, and he suggested Senator Cul
lom, to make a reply to .Mr- Root's
Speech which would exonerate. not
only Lorimer, but Illinois.
"I refuse to believe, that so great a
people, aro rotten to the ore," said
Venator Bailey, of Texas. "If. we are to
try Senator*; on the general miscon?
duct of legislator;, then the Senator
?o-'hosn right Is challenged now. Is not
tffto only one who must yield his seat.
His colleague. Mr. Cullom, was elected
by one of those Legislatures!, and no
man here believes that he was a party
to any of these evil, practices; but
(still the case of Lorimer 1?. the caao
of Cullom."
Senator Lorimer bad numerous de?
fenders who replied to the attack upon
him and the method of his election
which was made by Mr. Root Chief
among thern was Senator Heyhurn, of
Idaho, a member of the Lorimer In?
vestigating committee, who charged
that tiome persons bad entered Into
the attack upon Lorimer ln the spirit
of a man hunt.
IlroMiie'fc Fo11o\t1dk Corrupt.
Before Mr. Root h?d prciyeiieri far,
It developed that he went i.eyend th??
position of others who have? condemn?
ed the election of Lorimer as having
been accomplished by bribery. Re dis?
missed as Immaterial the controversy
over the. quc?tlon of eliminating th*
seven alleged tainted votes lrom the
total vote on joint ballot, as well as
from the number received by Lorimer.
The rottenness shown by the testi?
mony, continued Mr. Root, was sulh
? lent to Invalidate the election of
Lorimer, and he asserted mat all of
the following of Lee O'Ne'.ll Browne,
the Democratic leader In the Illinois
Assembly, was corrupt, and the votes
of that following should have been
eliminated.
Few Senators left their scats during
the speech and the galloHos Were
crowded, with hundreds of ethers in
the corridors waiting for chances of
admission which .never came.
"We are bound," continued Mr. Root, ]
"to act upon the universal knowledge
that the facts we have established im?
plicate others than those Absolutely
known to have been involved."
Mr. Root reached the conclusion that,
deducting the seven tainted votes, Mr.
Lorimer had been loft without a ma?
jority, "a fact which/' he haid, "In?
validates his election."
This was equally /rue, he said, whe?
ther the corruption Tund had been used
cither to increase. Lorimer's voto or
to reduce the total vote. Mr. Root In?
veighed strongly against the methods
by which It. is sought to sustain Mr.
Lorimer. He declared that tire Senate
could not afford to sanction such me?
thods. "If they stand, the honatc can?
not stand." he said. "If they stand,
the government of the United States
cannot stand."
Mr. Root characterized Browne and
bis thirty followers an "a band of rob?
bers," and declared that all of their
votes should be rejected in Lorlmer's
election.
The conclusion of Mr. Root's speech
was marked by an unusual scone. Mr.
Hale, of Maine, took the floor, and with
voice almost tremulous pleaded for a
reply to the New York Senator, that
would exonerate not Mr. Lorimer, but.
Illinois.
Declaring that the Senate could not
have been comfortable while Mr. Root
war* making his "powerful argument,"
and confessing that he. himself had not
been, he said, he had been impressed
with the seriousness of the situation.
?'As I listened to the distinguished
Senator's lamentable and melancholy
arraignment," said Mr. Hale, "tho Illi?
nois Senator disappeared entirely, and
.1 became Impressed with the serlou?
rofle.ction upon the. great State whosr
name is involved."
When Mr. Bailey called attention to
the fact that Mr. Lorimer had not been
present during the day's proceedings
thereby rendering his disappearance
impossible, Mr. Hale replied that, he
''had not referred to tho physicia] pros
oner: of the Illinois Senator, but. had
meant, merely to say that Lorimer had
been so completely overshadowed In the
issue as to bo eliminated from consid?
eration. This had not been an arraign
merit of Mr. Lorimer, but of the majes.
tic State of Illinois, Mr. Hale said, und
be added that, he did not want, tho]
case disposed of until Senator Cullom
or some other friend of the Statt
"should arise and. if possible, free tha
State from the Inevitable result of the
enarges of the Senator from New York
If we may believe what has been said,
there exists, and there, has existed for
years, a most unconscionable practice
nnd habit of corruption."
Mr. Bailey followed,, saying that If
Mr. Roofs doctrine was to be followed
it would be found that thero had not
been a lawful election in Illinois for
many years.
"This' election was not nn exception,"
ho said, and added: "For my part, 1

I
St. Petersburg, February 3. ? Dr
Pantchenko, whose specialty, he admits,
has been the removal by poisoning of
undesirable relatives and enemies of
those who could pay hts fee, told at
to-day's session of the murder trial
of how he secured his Instruments of I
death. The admission was brought out
In connection with the testimony of
died leal witnesses.
Pantchenko, In common with Count
O'Brien de Bassy, is charged with the
murder of Oe Bassy's brother-in-law,
Count Vnsslli ?out?r?n, the heir to
several millions, which, it is alleged,
De Bdssy coveted for his wife.
The doctor, ha? confessed that Bou
turlin was the most recent of some
forty victims, but claims that in this
particular killing he was under the
hynotlc influence of Do Lassy, who,
however, paid him, he says, for the Job.
Pantchenko's income is said to have
gone to Mine. Mtiravieff, and the latter
has been made a party to the proceed?
ings.
Went to Pest I.nhorntnry.
Dr. Heinrich, a veterinary employed
at .tin- post laboratory in Kronstadt,
.testified that t!lf! prisoner twice visited
the laboratory, where he obtained sev?
eral tubes of cholera endotoxin. which
he represented were required for sci?
entific purposed.
At this point Pantchenko explained
to the court tbnt Oe La any had fur
nish?'l hint with - money for the trip to
Kronstadt, and he added that he gave,
the tubes of poison to the. count.
nr. Zabolotny, the plague expert, -who
tecently returned front nn Inspection of
China."then was called. He testified
that Pantchenko bad applied to him for
diphtheria! toxin. The witness gave,
him dlphtherlal culture fluid. Later
he ascertained that the fluid lncked
killing power, but this was unknown
to Pantchenko.
Tit" president of the court asked the
aged prisoner what he did with the
fluid, and the latter replied that he
threw It away.
Wnnted Dlphtherlal Tn*ln.
Another to whom Pantchenko went
for poison was Dr. Zdrzhekovski., He
testified thst the doctor came to the
institute cf P.xperlmental Medicine and
isked for dlphtherlal toxin. The wit
?less gavp hlni several assay tubes.
The presiding Judge interrupted to
i Inquire what Pantchenko did with this
supply of poison. For a moment there
[ was tense sibnce In the court room
is the notorious murderer hesitated.
Plnally he evaded the question, saying
that he would reply to it later.
The results of the autopsy and a
microscopical examination of the in?
ternal organs from the body of Bou
turlln were then laid before the court.

Already the bonk and both railroads
have agreed to lease such space as is
necessary for the period of ten yeurs.
Ar, yet no definite arrangements hav.o
been made with the Chamber of Com?
merce, but it will be given the disposal
of adequate quarters at moderate fig?
ures. Aside from the space which will
be occupied by members of the syndi?
cate. It is estimated that from four to
five floors will be rented to mlscellatic
I ous tenants. The new building it Is
said will be at least twenty stories
high, and when completed, including
I the cost of the property, will total 51,
000,000 or more,
j In the temporary scheme only plans
for the banking rooms have yet been
mapped out. The \oi contain approx
I irnately s.tJOO square feet, and the in
l side measurements of the ground tloor,
which will be occupied by the bank,
will show 7,200 square feet of space,
or about two and one-half times the
space It now occupies. Besides the en?
trances, lobby, five elevators, el gar and
news stand, telegraph and telephone
booths, tho actual space In the bank?

and now are more than $7.000,0.00.
Wonderful Kasrnieut.
The basement, wilt be perhaps the
most interesting portion of the new
building. There will be located the.
fire and burglar-proof vaults, which
will be the most modern obtainable
and will cost more than $30,000. In tho

four by sixteen feet, inside measure?
ment, which besides sheltering the
bank's funds will have a capacity of

graphed him last Sunday as follows:
"The government of Honduras Is re?
solved to approve the loan convention.
For this, suspension of hostilities is
r.ccessary in order to prevent the use?
less shedding of blood. rf Your Ex-.j

"I have received Your Excellency's i
telegram as evidence of your sincere;
desire to prevent useless bloodshed and |
disastrous waste of the already de- !

Washington, D. C, February .1.?Af
lor a aeries of thrilling experiences
Senator Borah, supported by Progres?
siv? Republican and Democratic Sen?
ators, made tremendous advances
through the lines of Old Guard Ropub
iieans and placed the resolution fot
tho election of Senators by direct vole
of tho people in a most advantageous
position, Bu.un.rety in front of the en?
emy's goal.
After * taking a number of rebuffs,
' the liktho Senator, with persistence not
often witnessed in the Senate, pounded
away until he landed his resolution In
the favored place on the legislative
I program, and It must come up every

The moment tho Dorlmor ease was
laid aside to-day, Senators Nelson and

|and gave him the. tloor. lie moved to

Borah promptly moved to lay that mo?

the. question. !

After tho Senate had proceeded with
the Alaskan bill for a short time. Mr.
jNelson gave way to Senator Warren t>?
make a motion that the Senate adjourn

into the fray again, lie said In- would
object, and that he did so because it
had become apparent that Senators op?
posed to his resolution would not give
consideration to it if they could help

tion to adjourn until Monday ami tills!
