PHILADELPHIA, Feb. 3.—The din

this morning and its close was
marked by a tart denunciation of
Senator LaFollette by Don C. Seitz
of the American Publishers associa
tion, who acted as toastmaster.
LaFollette began his speech near
midnight and spoke for nearly two
hours. The more than «0u diners were
visibly wearied, and toward the close
frequently interrupted him. Much ofl
his speech was an attack upon the sin
cerity of the newspaper press of the
When he had finished, Seitz said:
I shall not attempt, nor have I
time to come to the defense of the
newspapers of the country, which!
have just been foolishly, wickedly
and untruthful asailed."
LaFollette made no sign of hearing
the caustic remark, uttered in a half
angry tone. Today in an interview,
Seitz said:

LOS ANGELES, Feb. 3.—Clarence
S. Darrow. former chief counsel for
the McNamaras, pleaded not guilty
today to two indictments charging
him with jury bribery. The pleas
were entered after presiding Judge
Hutton of the superior court over
ruled a demurrer filed in behalf of
Darrow an a motion to quash the in
that the senator had made an unkind
and wilfully malicious attack on the
newspapers of the nation, and if I
had had more time I would have said
something stronger upon the subject.
"Last night's dinner, during which,
we thought, we would josh the states
man, ended in calamity. It was trag
edy for Senator LaFollette's hopes.
He simply has wiped himself off the
map. Undoubtedly he came to Phila
delphia to make the address of his
life, and when it developed into an
infamous slander of newspapers and
wallowing, sycophantic praise of mag
azines I realized that the man had
overstepped his mark. Previous to
that time the senator had talked for
more than two hours an4 when he con
cluded I certainly rebuked him.
"In my mind the senator, not know
ing the relationship between maga
zines and newspapers, came to the
dinner to attack the latter and curry
favor with the magazine publishers."
The portion of LaFollette's speech
to which Seitz took exception, follows:
"I have sketched the growth and
power of the great interests that to
day control our property and our gov
ernment. I have shown how subtle and
elusive, yet how relentless they are.
Rising up against them is the con
fused voice of the people. Their heart
is true, but their eyes yet do not
see all their intricate sources of pow
er. Who shall show them? There
are only two agencies that in any way
can reach the whole people. These
are the press and platform. But the
platform in no way compares with
the press in its power of continuous
repeated instruction.
"One would think in a democracy
like ours, seeking for instruction,
able to read and understand, the
press would be their eager and will
ing instructor. Such was the press
of Horace Greely. Henry Raymond.
Charles A. Dana, Joseph Medill and
Horace Rublee.
"But what do we find has occurred
in the last few years? The money
power has gained control of our indus
tries and government. It controls,
the newspaper press. The people
know this. Their confidence is weak
