vestlgation of charges of briber
made in connection with the election
of Senator William Lorimer of I1U
nols was submitted to the senate by
the committee on privileges and elec
tions through Its chairman Senate
Burrows Wednesday just before that
body adjourned for the holiday re
cessTho conclusion reached by tho con
mittee follows
That in their opinion the title of
Mr Lorimer to a seat in the senat
has not been shown to be invalid by
tho use or employment of corrup
method r practises
Charges that four members of the
Illinois legislature were bribed am
chat three other members paid bribe
arc not Ignored by the committee
The report declares that those whi
confessed to receiving bribes shouU
not be bclleed and that the votes of
those who wero charged with paying
bribes should be counted
In relation to the charges that then
was a corruption fund used in the 1111
nols legislature and that it was dis
bursed by one Robert E Wilson the
report says that there is no evident
that It was used for the benefit of Mr
Lorimer The committee suggest
that any Investigation of the use of
such a fund should be made by au
ihorities of the state of Illinois
The statement of views of Senator
Frailer was made public later In
his statement Senator Frazier declare
that the four confessed brlbe taken
Implicated three other members o
ho legislature who bribed them thai
those three votes were also corrupt
which would make seven tainted
votes Kllinlnatlng these seven votes
Senator FrazIer holds would make
the vote received by Senator Lorimer
less than a majority
The report as presented was not
signed by members of the committee
although it did not appear that there
was any minority On the floor of the
senate however Mr Bevoridge made
the statement that ho had not been

United Kingdom More Temperate
Now Than Ever Before Bays
Alliance Secretary
The amount of boor and uplrta con
sumed in tho United Kingdom during
1909 is very much less than tho
amount recorded for all preceding
years In fact Great Britain Is moro
temperate now than alto baa over
been declares Secretary George II
Wllion of the United Kingdom Tem
peranco Alliance In his report re
cently Issued In the London prow ho
estimates that the total expenditure on
nil alcoholic liquor consumed In tho
three kingdoms last year nmonntcd to
156162480 as compared with cICI
000482 in 1908
There ban therefore been a material
decrease of 5807997 during ttto past
twulvmnonth On spirits the decrease wan C 4800
000 with a decrease In consumption
of 7022775 gallons On beer lib de
crease was 1186000 with ndocroafta
In consumption of G463DG barr H On
wines on the other hand there hen
been an increase of 98000 with an
increase In consumption of 107744 gal
Ions Hut as the secretarys report points
out the amount spent on drink us a
compartoon falls to picture the true
decrease In drinking Owing to tho
Increased taxes of 1909 the retail
price of all liquors advanced and
hence If the prices of 1009 wore tho
same as the prices of ItOft the de
crease In the amount spent would bo
double what It la If there had been
no Increase In prices the actual reduc
lien on the total expenditure would
have been 11147907
Iowion press report state unheal
tatlagly that the British people have
been growing more temperate nf kite

of last year leaven no doubt that tax

further added that It thla reduction
were to be progressively maintained

The Increased taxes applied on tin
