candidate, to Senator William E. Borah]
without even the latter's consent in the j
hopes of bolstering up a weak candi

Condemnation of the tactics em
ployed by those in charge of the di
reeting of the Republican state cam
paign was not only local, but was
statewide in opposition to the attempt
to team Senator Borah and John M.
Haines together without the consent
of the former, which it was believed
when this was done und is still be
lieved was for the purpose of humiliat
ing Senator Borah, the state chairman
and secretary resorting to the ruse
under cover of their management of
the campaign. So far the manage

claimed, not served to advance the
Interests of the party and while It has|

speeches, alone, thereby giving him a
better opportunity to display his ora
torical abilities. Those who heard
his addiesses when he tagged Sena
tor Borah down to the southeast and
back to the southern part of the
state, uninvited by the senator and
without even consulting him, have
been kind enough to refer to the
Haines addresses as ''alleged'' speech
es. They are said to have made a
laughing stock not only for himBelf
but Senator Borah, for the state com

to make it appear both candidates

Trick Exposed; Protests Corns In.
When the trick that was played on
enajr.r Borah was exposed through
the publication of the facts,.the pro
test that rolled In from every part of
the state kept the state chairman and
secretary busy trying to make explan
ations. These were not satisfactory
and the protests still came in, finally
crystallizing In a demand that those In
charge cease the underhanded meth
ods to embarrass candidates, and not
only cut Mr. Haines away from Borah,
but permit the latter to follow out a
separate Itinerary. The showing said
to have been made by Haines did not
promote his candidacy and when the
scheme was exposed, the committee
was severely condemned for the ac
tion of the chairman and seeretary.
This condemnation came from promi
nent party men who did not mince
words In their protest, hence the an
nouncement that Mr. Haines has been
cut off as a team-mate of Senator

R. S. Sheridan was the first witness

said he had been called to the counter 1

an article about to appear and asked ^
that Mr. Wallis be consulted first. He ;
gave Instructions that Mr. Wallis

quired to find out If It had been veri

that it had been and that there could
