Mr Lorimer aroso to a question oC
personal privilege and began his rev
ply to the charges that have around
wide interest His llsatemcnt on the
floor of tho senate had been eagerly
awaited bj his colleagues of whom
here was a practically full attendance
and earnest attention was given him
Foremost in the annwor of the senator
to the charge stood his assertion that
it had been formulated by rho Chicago
Tribune with tho purpoao of destroy
ing a ow banking association In that
city which Mr Lorlmcr had organ
ized Concluding he offered a reso
f lution calling for a senatorial inven
tlgallon of the cargos against him
In opening Mr Lorimer said
Mr President rise to a question
of personal privilege to state the facts
concerning and the reason for tho
most recent assault made upon me by
tho Chicago Tribune with the Intent
to blacken my character with the peo
I ple of the country and to destroy mo
1 I and my friends financially nnd poll
I ticalij
t Ho then delailod the fact of tho I
mV Tribunes publication April 1 last

alleged that he had procured his scat
In the senate through bribery antI

In such a proceeding
Scandal Out of Lies
He declared that Medill McCormick
i of the Tribune had threatened that
he hank should never open and also
asserted that White did not write the
Ie Flory as has been claimed but that It
was the work of a trained newspaper
hand skilled In the art of creating
scandal out of lies when It Is thought
tr necessary to blacken the character of
rotH whom the newspaper cannot con
It Is also plain to be seen he
wont on that every word was passed
on bv a lawyer before It was signed
by that poor low creature White
who does not hesitate to commit for
gery for a few dollars and to whom
perjury Is no crime who is a part
of tho lowest fringes of depravity
and who to secure money to satisfy
his bnuchory sold what Illllo was
i loft of his manhood and became the
t pliant too of the Tribune In this

I tho contrary said that the charges

I Hoosevolt has written n letter from
Tendon to a prominent Republican
Insurgent member of tho house of
representatives requesting the latter
to moot him In a conference as soon
after the exprcsldcutis arrival in Now

Mr Roosevelts letter indicates that
ho la desirous < > f learning the Insur
gent filiation In the house from first
hand as soon as possible after his re
turn to this country
The member receiving Iho letter de
clined to allow thoiigo or his name
in connection therewith as ho Raid It
might prove embarrassing both for
Roosevelt and himself if made known
at this time Ho did however show
the letter to one or two persons with
the injunction that they should not

Tho Insurgent Jf a longtime
personal friend of Ir Roosevelt and
for that reason has j not hesitated
about advising thcovprepidont unre
servedly about tbo various political
events which have transpired since
Mr Roosevelt departed for Africa a
year ago Vjjj
In response to I1 Roosevelts re
quest the Insurgent member has
made a hotel rcscrvtfon In New York
foar June 18 r
This member expressed no doubt
that Mr Roosevelt would support the
cause of the house insurgents and
prophesied that he would bo found
making a few speeches this fall in the
districts represented iby the Insur

James J Corbett according to his own
declaration has not come to Callforj
nla to take charge of Jlm Jeffries j
training It is generally believed that j
plans of thc former champion for a I
revision of the big fellows work will j
bo adopted and that Gentleman j
Jim will wield great Influence hence
forth in the regulation of the Den Lo
Blond program I
Corbett has some d ° cldod views as j
to the style of training Jeffries should i
follow In preparing for his tight with f
Johnson He says he has thoroughly 1
analyzed Johnsons methods and that i
it Is highly essential for Jeffries to J
school himself to a form of fighting i
best adapted to meet the negros tac i
tics j
And he said to the newspaper I
men last night its lighting and not I
boxing that Jeffries requires from now
on Im going to warn film that light i
ing is what hell get from me When I
I wan training for my meeting with I
this some Jeffries I hired Gus Ruhlln
at SI 00 a week and we would lock our
selves In a twelvefoot ring and pum
mel each olher till arounjl the ropes
That Is the kind of work that Jef
fries should now have
Of the several thousand fans that
cheered Jeffries at his boxing nxhibl I
tlon last night no one enjoyed Jcf
fries good showing more than Coi
bull Corbett and Johnson arc not on
good terms and the former Is anxious
to have Jeffries whip the black Re
garding Johnsons reported statement
that he would like to have Corbatt face
him In his training quarters here I
Corbett paid I
I nave a proposition to make to I
show what a big stiff he is I hereby
defy him to repeat that I nm afraid to
come to his quarters If he acccpls
that challenge I will box him where
and whenever he pleases
Contrasting the ladles of Johnson
and Joffrios Corbett said I
Johnson Is fi wonderful defensive
boxer and moreover he blocks with
his hands uml dos not depend on his
feet Strangely unlike most flalfonl I
od boxers he Is nol aggressive Nor
has he shown a punch j
Now Joffiicn likes a man who
conies rushing in to him lohnson will
do nothing of the sort Ile will slay
away and clinch as often as he can
Thnroforc Jeffries does not need the
rushing kind of a boxing partner so
much ns the follow who will slop in I
feint make Jeffries miss if he can and
then run away That is the kind of
a fight this ono hn going to hp
Corbett denies report that ho pre
dicted Johnson would not last more
than fifteen rouuda Ho Is nf the opin
ion In says that tho fight will go
much lonsror than that
With the roliirn of Ito Jeffries

ence will be held It is stated to de
lermlno upon changes In ffrjo8

What he had testified about Mr
Connolly he said ho bad believed to
ho correct but In view of Mr Ccni
nollys letter read lo the committee I
yesterday he Judged he had been mis j
informed Ho said he did not Intend 1
III do any wrong to Mr Connolly and II
took that method of making public
Mr Connolly instituted suit for 70 I

Inv veslcrdny In the supreme court of
Urn District of Columbia
Mr Vertrcos COIIIIHO for Secretary
Halllngcr then proceeded with his ar
gument taking up the Cunningham
coal cases Ho referred at length to
the legal situation in Alaslca as far
as the land laws were concerned He
asked members of the committee to
remember that when Mr Ballinger
went into olllce as commissioner of
the land office on March 4 1007 the
Cunningham cases had been advanced
nearly to connection
I Everything had been done ho
I aid except make the jinni naymonta
j and getting receipts and certificates
Mr Ballinger he said bad come
into offlco under circumstances which
ought to preclude tho suggestion that
ho did anything except his duty
Mr Ballinger he said accepted
this office with reluctance Whop It
I was tendered him lie declined it
i which it seems to me utterly pre
cluded the idea that he entered It for
any Improper purpose He had no in
terest directly or Imllrclqtly in iuy of
these clalmi UeCiiterccl the oliice
with the single idea of discharging
lila duty i
If the committee should decilc
ngaliiat Secretary Ballinger said All
Vortreos they would have to cast hu
IMitrttlon Upon every man In the inter
ior department who had anything to
do with the Cunningham claims
They must proceed on the assump

I see no reason why the United

said Sir William With your over

The United States navy has had a
great advantage over the navies ot
many other nations There was prac

to the tlmo of the Civil war Naval
construction began later In this coun j
try and thus the United Sates navy
has benefited by other nations ex
perience and at the sumo time It has
applied its own skill and Ideas
Tho navy belongs to the nation
and not a political party It la
wrong to bring politics Into the navy
We had a recent Illustration in Eng

The future of shipbuilding must
