Bribery for Denying "Jackpot"
Chicago, May 14.—State Attorney
Wayman's announcement that he
would put the case of Lee O'Neil
Browne, the Democratic state repre
sentative accused of bribery in the
election of Senator Lorimer, on Judge
McSurley's call for Monday, Is tak

It is practically certain, however,
that the defense will ask for and re
ceive a postponement In order to pre
pare its case as It is little more than
a week 8 go that the indictment was
The greatest interest is felt in the
prospective trial of Browne, who is the
minority leader of the lower house at
Springfield, and who, according to
three confessions which the stat-Vs at
torney claims to have, is alleged to
have distributed in 11,000 lots the
money said to have been used in se
curing Democratic votes for Lorimer.
It is not unlikely that Mr. Wayman
will leave the matter of the alleged
legislative "jackpot" distributed at St.
Louis from the proceeds of odd bits of
legislation to State Attorney Burke,
of Sangamon county.
Robert E. Wilson, Democratic repre
sentative from Chicago, is charged
with perjury in denying that he "split
up" the "pot" at St. Louis, but it is
believed that the evidence in this case
can be presented to better advantage
END 8IXTH CONSTRUCTION YEAR
Review of What Has Been Accomplish
ed On Panama Canal Given Out.
Washington, May 14.—On May 3 the
sixth year of American construction of
the Panama canal ended and the canal
record has presented an interesting re
view of what has been accomplished.
Altogether 105,888,072 cubic yards of
earth and rock have been removed.
That leaves to be taken out of the
water approaches to the canal 29,232,
062 cubic yards of material, while the
steam shovels have to dig out 18,827,
817 yards of solid earth and rock.
The Culebra cut presents the hard
est problem for there remains to be
excavated in that miniature mountain
range 31,128,845 cubic yards, but as
this is being carried off at the rate of
1,240,000 yards per month, the end will
soon be in sight. While all this exca
vation is going on rapid work is being
done in the construction of the great
dams and locks of the canal and it is
estimated that by June 1 an average
of 2,600 cubic yards of concrete will
be laid each day.
