VOL XX CALUMET HOUGHTON COUNTY, MICHIGAN, MONDAY AFTERNOON FEBRUARY 27, 1911 NO. 10! VOTE MAY BE TAKEN BEFORE THE DAY ENDS On Motion of Burrows Senate A . grecs to Proceed Immediate ly With Consideration of Lorimer Case MAY BE AN-EVENING SESSION Intention of Illinois Solon's Friends is to Prolong Sitting Until Voto is Reached Several Yet to Be Heard. Washington, D. C. Fcb. 27. With a full realization that after today there would bo little opportunity to give any consideration to the rase of Sen ator Lorimer, hla friends went Into today's session of the senate with de termination of pressing the question to vote before adjournment' If possible. As usual there were obstacles In the way, "but Lorlmer's friends were de voting: themselves with might and main to their removal. Penrose, 1n charge of the postofllce appropriation, was regarded ca the principal of these, tiut he appeared willing to yield In favor of the Lorimer case If toy so do ing he could Insure a vote upon it Senators Stone, Crawford, Root end Owen are still standing with undeliv ered speeches, twit all promised to be brief. LaFollette Is still an uncertain far tor, but the supporters of Lorimer were confident, even though LaFoI htte's opposition rhoukl develop into a filibuster, 'they still could force a vote unless ' reinforcements thould ome to his assistance. The plan, therefore, was to prevail upon Ten rose to-get out of tho avay. with . the postofflce bill to take the Lorimer matter up at the beginning of the ses sion and to continue the day's" sitting unt'I a vote should be readied, even though a prolonged evening session should become necessary. . On motion of Burrows the senate voted to proceed immediately with the consideration of the Lorimer case. Crawford Defends Oeneen. ' Crawford took the floor to reply to wmo of Lorlmer's expressions In his own defense. Crawford ppoke espe cially of Lorlmer's criticisms of Gov ernor Deneen. Ho had been of the opinion the governor should have an orrortunlty to defend himself, ho paid. On this account the' South Dakota senator said he had notified. Governor I-)eneen of Lorlmer's charges and had received a telegrom in reply, saying the governor had not favored Lorl mer's election and referring him to th published statements by himself. Characterizing Lorlmer's discussion of the case as a charge against Ic neen of "usurpation and tyranny," Crawford criticised the minors sena tor's course as unjustifiable in view of the fact the testimony had been closed, and the governor foreclosed against a reply. Crawford read Denocn's newspaper rri ly to Lorlmer's speech. Referring to the plea that tho present proceed ing Is an effort to assassinate the character of Irlmer, Crawford de clared that if deterred by su ' allega tions the Senate would bram' Itself as cowards, abject cowards. Crawford asserted, that In his cam paign for governor, Deneon was "hounded not only by the Democrats but by the Republicans led by Lori mer." He reiterated tho election of Shurtleff as rpeaker, and Browne, as Democratic leader, were steps In tho corrupt program. May Be Further Delay. Without having concluded, Craw ford yielded the floor at 3 o'clock. That procedure presaged a further delay In the Lorimer case, as the yielding was to Huron who was to speak on the Popular election of senators. liacon, however, immediately yielded to Raln er, who entered upon the delivery of a set speech upon that subject. .

EIGHT SEfK THE MAYORALTY This ia the Plum That ia 8ought by Five Republicans and Three Democrats. Keen Aldermanie Contests Also. Chicago, 111.. Feb. 27. Today saw the close of one of the most exciting political campaigns Chicago has wit nessed in some years. Tomorrow all of the parties will hold direct pri maries for the nomination of candi dates for mayor, city treasurer, city clerk and members of the board of aldermen.

The name of one candidate each for the Socialists and Prohibitionists also will appear on tho ballot, but neither of these parties Is expected to cut much of a figure In the race. The five .candidates for. the mayor alty ; nomination on ' the . Republican side are Charles . E. . Merriam, John E. Scully, John B.. Thompson; Tom- Mur ray and John F. Smulki. Mr. Mer riam is a professor at. the University of Chicago and a member of the board f aldermen. He is classed as the Re publican reform candidate.' Aa an al- ut iiuau uc wa viuiiniuin.oi . ipePin mission on City Expenditures, whose investigation Into the city 'administra tion resulted In the removal of seVeral' city officials in the past year. John E. Scully, .whose name ap pears second on the ballot, ls a mem ber of the board of aldermen and an experienced politician. The principal plank of his platform is opposition to the public service corporations. John R. Thompson, the third Re publican aspirant for . the mayoralty, is known chiefly aa the proprietor of a string of popular restaurants. He has mixed In politics for some years and once served a term as county treasurer. In his fight for the mayor alty he has the backing of Senator ( Lorlmer s chief lieutenants. The candidacy of Tom Murray who is fourth an the Republican list Is hot taken very seriously. Murray M a clothing merchant and far famed for i his unique methods of advertising. He has never been a candidate for pub lic office before. John F. Smulskl, the fifth of the Republican aspirants, is a veteran pol itician, who used to be State treasur er. He Is said to be favored by Gov ernor Deneen and his local following for the mayoralty nomination. On the Democratic aide there ire three candidates for mayor, Carter If. Harrison, Andrew J. Graham and Ed- ward V. Dunne. Carter H. Harrison, who already has served four terms as mayor, wishes to equal the record of his famous father, who was elected five times. Behind the Harrison candidacy la the notorious K en na-Cough Ian First ward regency and a considerable portion of the old Harrison administration. Andrewr J. Graham, the second of the Democratic aspirants, Is a West Side Banker who has figured In Dem ocratic politics for f. long time, but, has not held office. He has the back ing of the Democratic county organi sation. His campaign for the nomina tion has been notable chiefly for his lavish expenditures. Edward F. Dunne, the third Demo crat It the field, was elected tna5'or several years sgo on a municipal own ership platform. Before that he lihd teen on the bench. When mayor 'he made a good record, lie lowered tel ephone rates, and, although he ve toed sevcnty-five-cent gas, an ordin ance was passed giving the people a reduction from $1 to 85-cents. W. A. Brugaker la the only Prohi bition candidate for mayor and W. E. Rodriguez has no opposition at the Socialistic primaries. In addition to the mayorallty keen Interest Is displayed In the aldermanie contests In nearly all of the thirty-1 five wards. The aldermanie contests' are more numerous than for many years. Particularly Is this true on the Democratic side, where the bit ter mayoralty battle has brought Out Graham, Harrison and Dunne alder-' manic candidates In nearly every wa,rd. The reform organisation are put-. ting forth efforts to defeat alleged "gray wolves." because the next board of aldermen probably will hate to de cide upon several important municipal IssueA. i .'II Figuring as . leading Issues In the mayoralty and aldermanie contests alike are graft and vice, cheap ires, lower telephone rates, mrbwaya and universal transfers," the smoke not-' saner, and cold cam.
