LOS ANGELES HERALD: TUESDAY MORNING, SEPTEMBER 27, 1910. LORIMER FIGHTS TO HUSH EVIDENCE ABOUT 'JACK POT' Senator's Lawyers Seek to Re strict Scope of Congres sional Probe LEGISLATOR TELLS OF BRIBE White Says He Was Paid $1000 by Browne to Vote for Chicago Man [Assoclftteil Press! CHICAGO, Sept. 2fi — Testimony from State Representative Charles A. White was hoard today by the senate com mittee investigating the charges of bri bery in the election of William Lori mer as senator from Illinois. After hours of argument by coun sel, the committee left undetermined the question of the admisslbility of testimony relative to the alleged jack pot, a fund for the payment of legis lators for voting for or against bills pending before the Illinois general as sembly. Attorney Alfred S. Austrian, representing the Chicago Tribune, which is pushing the charges against Senator Lorimer, contended that the alleged participation of legislators who voted for Senator Lorimer in the spoils of the so-called "Jack pot" was per tinent to the investigation as showing general legislative corruption. ' Attorney Elbridge Hanecy, counsel for Senator Lorimer, opposed the ad mission of testimony relative to bribes paid to legislators for their votes on matters apart from the senatorial elec tion. On the understanding that the ac tion was not to be considered a pre cedent admitting the whole "jack pot" ( sucject, Chairman Burrows permitted White to answer some questions touch- Ing- the matter. WHITE TEIJjS OF BRIBE No objection was made by counsel to the testimony of White that he had been paid $1000 by Lee O'Neil Browne, the Democratic leader, to vote for Senator Lorlmer, but his words tell ing of the alleged distribution of the "jack pot" In a St. Louis hotel met with objection. Afer an executive session of some minutes, the ruling that the witness could answer on the St. Louis occur rence was given with the understand ing that no precedent was established and that the motion to exclude such testimony -was still pending. White then declared that he was met In a St. Louis hotel by Robert E. Wilson, also a Democratic representa tive, who paid him $900 as his share of the jack pot. White detailed his meeting with the other Democratic legislators In Wil son's room and testified that the pay ment was made to him in the bathroom by Wilson, who before that had con ferred with another legislator in the same bathroom. The committee would not permit the witness at this time to relate the con versations which he said he had with Representative Joseph Clark of Van dalia relative to a third representative, Mihcael Links, touching the bribery payments. . In the argument over the admissibil ity of the conversations of White, Sen ator Paynter asked Attorney Austrian: "Do you contend that if a number of legislators confess that they were bribed, it would Justify unseating a senator?" Attorney Austrian replied: "No, that Is not our contention." Authorities on the admission of tes timony relative to the conversations were cited by Attorney Austrian. ARGUES FOR. DEEP PROBE In the course of his argument Attor ney Austrian said: "Wo will prove that every man who was paid to vote for Senator Lorimer also shared in the jackpot. We expect to show the corrupt doings of the leg islators. If we cannot show this other corruption the testimony on the Lori mer money will have less weight." Digressing at one point from the le gal points involved Attorney Hanecy said": "Governor Deneen will testify, if he is called, that he, Governor Deneen, suggested that Senator Lorimer be come a candidate for the senatorshlp. "This committee Is asked," continued Attorney Hanecy, "to hold against Sen ator Lorimer because it is said that someone paid money to pass or kill bills. It' this lino of testimony Is ad mitted we should be. allowed to sum mon every corporation or person that is charged with paying money into this "jackpot" fund and show by them that they did not pay anything to affect legislation." Representative 11. J. Heckemeyer ar rived today and was served with a summons to testify. He is expected to be the second witness before the com mittee. The direct examination of Rep resentative White will be resumed to morrow.

T., Sept. 26.—At the meeting of the Republican state com mittee tonight Chairman Woodruff read a letter from Vice President Sherman asking for an Investigation by the committee of the charge that his selection for temporary chairman of the state convention was brought about through trickery, and saying that if such charges were substan tiated he would not care to serve. Mr. Sherman's letter follows: "As you know, I had no ambition to preside over the state convention to convene tomorrow. As you also know, I was asked to preside not alone be cause I was part of the Taft admin istration, but because it was known that in response to the president's re quest I had spoken of the administra tion and for him on several occasions in different sections of the country; because It was known I had been a staunch supporter of the president during his entire term of office; be cause I was known to be an especially ardent supporter and advocate Of the baste principles of the party. "My name was presented in the state committee in accordance with custom in state and nation. I solicited no man's support. I consented to act as a service to ray party, not to gratify a personal ambition. In that respect I had none. "The charge has since been made in some quarters that my selection was accepted in the state committee by means of deception and misrepresen tation. I do not believe it. So far as I am personally concerned, I know the statement to be absolutely un founded. EX-en to do the party a ser vice I am unwilling to serve in the face of Buch a charge if well founded. "I therefore ask that at the commit tee meeting tonight the charge so publicly made be with equal dierct ness and publicity investigated; that the majority of the state committee which originally favored my selection may each declare whether or not his preference was based upon any state ment which bore any color of misrep resentation or deception, for if such be the fact I ask that my name be not presented to the convention for its temporary presiding officer tomorrow." SHERMAN RE-SELECTED SARATOGA, N. T., Sept. 26.—8y a vote of 22 to 15 the Republican state committee at a special meeting to night reaffirmed its selection of Vice President Sherman over Theodore Roosevelt as temporary chairman of the state convention which convenes tomorrow.

R.R. REBATING IS STRONGLY HINTED Favoritism to Certain Shippers Indirectly Charged at Rate Hearing PROBE DAMAGE ACCOUNTS Business Men About Ready to Rest Case Before Com merce Commission [Associated Press) CHICAGO, Sept. 26.—Indirect charges that the railroads In the west were vio lating the Elkins anti-rebate law and favoring certain shippers, charging: the alleged rebates to "damage accounts," were made before the Interstate com merce commission at today's session of the hearing into tHe advisability of al lowing western roads to make a general raise in freight rates. California Thorne, representing live stock and other shippers, delivered the implication in questioning C. J. Me- Pherson, assistant general manager of the Missouri Pacific railroad. The col loquy began with Mr. Thome's ques tion: • "To what account were rebates charged prior to 1904?" "I know nothing of rebates," replied the witness; "I do not know that rebates ever were given." "What I want to find out," persisted Mr. Thorne, "is this: Is it possible that rebates still are given as they were then and charged to damage accounts or similar accounts? I want to find out what the procedure was then, to see if it is still followed, and I am in variably met with the answer, 'I don't know,' from men whose steady business it is to know." Attorney Jeffreys, representing the railroad, Interposed with the inquiry: "May I learn to what end you are aiming?" PROBES DAMAGE ACCOUNTS "Certainly," retorted Mr. Thorne. "In your railroad's damage accounts, the same as in others, there have been start ling increases since 1904, with no satis factory explanation. The Elkins bill was passed in 1904. I have more than hearsay advice that there is a connec tion between these damage accounts and rebates. I want to find out If re bates still are being given." Previous to this the shippers had in timated to the committee that they would enter no evidence but would rest their case on the claim that the rail roads had failed to show basis for an increase of rates. Assistant General Manager McPher son of the Missouri Pacific said the physical value of that road was far above the capitalization—sl4s,ooo,ooo— that Increasing land values had made it so. I E. B. Boyd, assistant vice president of the Missouri Pacific railroad, after some questioning, said he believed a surplus, if taken from dividend earn ings, should bo allowed the railroad from income, and said he thought it should be used the same as borrowed capital, upon which interest and divi-, dends should bo accumulated. Chester M. Dawes, attorney for the Chicago, Burlington & Quincey, opened the case for his road with statistics similar to those , submitted by other railroads, by which he hoped to show that his road was unable to pay a fair return on its value, as judged by taxes paid. Increased cost of labor, fuel and material, he said, were to.blame for the conditions he pictured. GAYNDR WILL REFUSE GOVERNOR NOMINATION Mayor of New York Declares He Does Not Desire Higher Position (Continued from rase One) lodged In it, is second to no office in this country, savrs one. FUTURE NOT CONSIDERED "Many tell me and write me that in taking this course I give up my future. But I shall not take myself or my future into consideration. None of us has a future, but only the present. And if I thought I had a future I should be contented to entrust it to the people of the city of New York. "I trust that the convention will nominate one who Is not a mere dealer In the political commonplaces and jingles of the last twenty-five or thirty years, but who has kept pace and grown with the times, and whose ab sorbing 1 purpose will be to make the government of the state, in all its branches, general and local, Intelligent, honest and decent, and to lift it up and make it an object lesson to the whole nation. "If to do this he has to be more or less meddlesome, we will all forgive his meddlesomeness, if kept fairly within the law." OPPONENTS OF GAYNOR PREPARE FOR STRUGGLE ROCHESTER, N. V., Sept. 26.—The opponents of Mayor Gaynor devoted today and tonight to preparation for the struggle against his selection for the head of the Democratic state ticket, which now seems likely to be the distinguishing feature of the two days remaining prior to the conven tion. The extent of this opposition is dif ficult to define. Friends of James S. Havens declare that It covers the west ern half of the state, and some assert that there is no demand for the may or's nomination outside of New York city. At present the Havens men head the antl-Gaynor forces and hope to enlist the aid of other candidates, on the ground that the elimination of Gaynor is the first requisite toward In suring the success of nnybody else, no matter from what section of the state he halls. The opponents of Gaynor, it is said, will urge on Charles F. Murphy, the Tammany Hall loader, and others that it will be dangeroua to depend too much on the popular sentiment in Gaynor's favor engendered by hi.s at tempted assassination; that but for tills sympathy Judge Gaynor would not have his present lead for the nomina tion, and that it Is not strong enough to weather the strain of a hard cam-1 paigu.

IN COLORADO SPEECH PUEBLO, Colo., Sept. 26.—Declaring that the Democratic party welcomed recruits and supporters of its policies, but holding that the veterans should receive full credit for the enactment of those policies into law, William J. Bryan at a mass meeting held here to day defended Democratic doctrines and criticised Theodore Roosevelt us being inconsistent in his political record. "The Democratic party has rreached this doctrine of new nationalism for fourteen years and in 1900 incorporated It in its platform, quite in contrast with tho distinguished gentleman who ap pears to have just made the discovery that this doctrine is correct and pro gressive and just. "In his expressions regarding rail road regulation, the income tax, swol len fortunes and publicity of campaign contributions, Mr. Roosevelt has merely followed a well established Democratic lead. For years Democratic platforms have been clamoring for legislation in this direction." Mr. Bryan pointed out that the in surgents in the Republican party now favored the election of United States senators by direct vote of the people and that this was a cardinal Demcy cdatic tenet. Concerning the tariff Mr. Bryan said: "This is merely a subterfuge to carry the question over the next election and through the presidential election of 1912. There is only one way to get tariff revision—revise the tariff honest ly, not by its 'friends,' but with the one object to protect the consumers." LA FOLLETTE'S VOTE AT PRIMARY IS OVERWHELMING MADISON, Wla..

John was propped against a veranda post laboriously scribbling this: "Charley Eyton: Please send me four dozen of your keyhole illuminators. I The device on which the United States patent office granted a patent on September 20 consists of a small Incandescent bulb anil storage batteries which are contained within a glass door knob. On the outer face of this knob a small button is set, and on pressure of this knob a flash of light is directed toward the keyhole, illuminating it per fectly. "I have long felt the need of such a device as this," said Eyton, "not from a sense of being befuddled on arrival home, for I never arrive so, but to tho most evenly balanced person there is nothing so hard to find as a keyhole in the dark. I have had several offers from reputable agents and attorneys in Washington to sell my rights to this invention, but I will retain my privi leges, as from sales which will be made I feel I am on the way to the million aire class."
