Press.) Washington, D. C, Jan. 18.—After almost a week's session, the senate to day resumed the consideration of tfie case of Senator Lorimer. There were two speeches, one by Burrows, chair man of the committee on privileges and elections, in support of the Illinois sen ator, and the other by Borah of Idaho, in opposition. Burrows strongly commended the course of Lorimer in demanding an in vestigation. Borah declared that cor ruption had characterized the proceed ings erer since Lorimer had decided to become a candidate for the senate. Both addresses were analytical and both went at length into the testimony. Frequently they quoted the same statements of wit nesses, but their deductions were wide ly at variance. The speeches resembled each other in the fact that both de nounced the conduct of Representative White, whose statement in a Chicago newspaper led to the investigation, but while Borah contended for the prob able truthfulness of his revelations as indicated by the supporting circumstanc es, the Michigan senator found nothing to sustain him or to give credence to his exposition. Burrows' speech is the first that had been made in Lorimer's behalf. Many opposing senators have been waiting for this presentation of the affirmative side of the case, and it is believed that the consideration will now proceed expedi tiously. There arc still many arguments to be heard before a vote can be reached. The house devoted the entire day to a consideration of the Moon bill for the codification of laws relating to the judiciary.

IS IN FAVO O A TARIF BOAR Ways and Means Commilleo Agree That Dalzell Plan Is the Better (By Associated Press.) Washington. D. C, Jan. 18.—A per manent tariff board along the lines of the Dalzell bill was agreed upon by the twelve republican members of the house committee on ways and means today by a vote of 8 to 1. The action followed a series of conferences over various plans for a permanent tariff body, which Taft has been urging_ congress to pro vide for at this session. Today's ac tion was taken after a long discussion of the two leading plans, the Long worth bill, favored by the administra tion, and the Dalzell bill. The' Longworth bill provides for a commission of five members at $7,000 each annually, and the Dalzell bill for three members, the chairman drawing $7,500 and the other two $7,000 each. The Dalzell bill authorizes the board to investigate anywhere, though the president's consent is necessary to in quiries abroad. Reports are to be made to the president or the house ways and means committee or the senate finance committee whenev racllcd upon. The Longworth bill provides for re ports to the president or to either house of congress and for the appearance of the commission before the two commit tees named if requested. The Dalzell bill does not provide for the powers of requiring the attendance of witnesses, productions of books and papers, etc. The republicans of the committee are not yet through with the plan, and a committee of three mem bers was appointed to go over the bill favored and make any changes deemed essential.

T+r**«+»+*++*++++» MV asserted that they would use every effort to prevent the expenditure of the large sums necessary to erect forts at both the Pacific and Atlantic ends of the canal, Panama City and Colon respectively. Mr. Foster stated that the forts would cost 5$0,000,000 and an additional $5,000,000 yearly to maintain them. He also said: "The moment the fortifications were com pleted we should have before us the problem of their defense. The rapid progress in aeronautics in recent years justififies the belief that.within a decade it will be possible for an enemy to send from one of its bat tleships an airship, which, sailing 10, 000 feet above the earth, could drop an explosive capable of utterly an nihilating the proposed fortifications." In Washington it is deemed certain that the president will have one of the bitterest contests of his adminis tration to win congress over to his views on this subject as expressed in his recent message. (By Associated Press.) San Francisco, Cal., Jan. 18.—Flying in a Curtiss biplane, Eugene B. Ely to day alighted successful!" on the deck of the cruiser Pennsylvania and an hour later rose from the vessel and flew back to Selfridge field, twelve miles away. The feat was accomplished without mis hap, and the seeming ease of the whole performance lessened the spectacular ef fect. "It was easy enough," said Ely, as he stenned from his seat at the field and was seized by cheering soldiers of the Thirtieth infantry and hoisted on their shoulders. "1 think the trick could be successfully turned nine times out of ten." A wooden platform 130 feet long and jo feet wide had been constructed over the after deck of the Pennsylvania. It sloped gently aft. Across the floor were stretched ropes with 100 pound sand bags made fast at either end. These were designed to be caught by hooks on the lower fraework of the biplane. As a further precaution a canas barrier was stretched across the forward end of the platform, lioats were put out to be rcadv in case of mishap. Ely had in stalled two seven foot pontoons under his aeroplane to float the machine in case he was forced to descend on the water, and forward he had built a hyy droplaue to keep the aeroplane from diving. At 10:58 the lookout on the Pennsyl vania sighted Ely through the haze and the ship's siren roared a blast of wel come. He came on at full speed and cir cled the fleet, dipping in salute to each ship. Ely came up against the wind for the stern of the Pennsylvania. He was flying low as he nearcd the shi and dropped clown as lightly as a gull, strik ing the platform about forty feet from the end. The hooks which had been arranged in the center pieces of the aeroplane did their work splendidly, and the airship was brought to a standstill within 25 feet. Deadlock Still Exists in N.

C, Jan. nearly three hours today 18.—For Solicitor General Lehmann of the department of justice argued before the supreme court of the United States in favor of the constitutionality of the cor poration tax provisions of the Payne Aldrich tariff. His argument is to constitute the principal defense .of the law, which has been called in question in fifteen cas-ss now before the court. The solicitor general told the court that the fifteen cases before it had been brought by share holders who objected to corporations paying tax. Each of the corpora tions had expressed the intention to obey the law. "The government is here," said the solicitor general, "to help corporations pay." Every ob jection had been raised to the tax. Lehmann said, that could be raised. Some of his opponents had gone so far, he said, as to claim that it was not tax but confiscation. The cor poration tax, according to the solici tor general, violated no constitutional limitations. He described the tax as an excise tax but said the fact that it made exemptions did not pre ivent it from being uniform. FIVE CENTS Sheehan Lacks Nine Votes For Election on First Joint Ballot Possibility That Dark Horse May be Entered ie Race AndWin (By Associated Press.) Albany. N. Y., ajn. 18.—The United States senatorship puzzle is an intricate tonight as ever. The legislature- today tried to choose a democrat who will succeed Senator Chauncey M. Depew, but no candidate received a majority of the votes necessary to election. Efforts to increase the following of Willir.n F. Sheihan. the leading candidate, cr to unite the opposition on any one other candidate thus far have proved fruitless. Sheehan, with 00 votes on the first joint ballot, and within nine votes of election, may be no nearer Washington than Martin W. Littleton or D. Cady Herrick, who received but two votes. In fact there is a growing impression that if Sheehan cannot win, the suc cessful candidate is as likely as not to be some one whose name has not yet been proposed. One ballot taken today gave Sheehan 00 votes. Edwards M. Shepard 13, Al ton Parker 7, James W. Gerard 3, Martin W. Littleton 2, and D. Cady Herrick 2. All these were democratic votes. The republicans voted solidly for their caucus choice, Depew. COLLAPSES Wheeling, W.

Secretary of the Treasury Mac Veagh, speaking at a banquet of the conference tonight declared that "there is not a man, woman or child in the whole nation, rich or poor., who is not involved in the question of whether or not we shall have proper, adequate and safe monetary system." "We do not know," said MacVeigh, "what the final report of i.e com mission will be, though its general features probably are foretold in very elaborate and interesting suggestions made public yesterday by the com mission's distinguished chairman. He has brought the great subject into concrete form and to the threshold of action." MacVeagh said the country was in a condition to wait for reform if necessary.
