By CHARLES V. STEWART
Washington. Dec. 16. Senator
Joseph T. Robinson of Arkansas ap

The story thus fa» is perfectly

Rf potts that Senator Janies F.

the north end of the Capitol building

they are almost incredible. Xcc<<rth“-
less, they are persistent. Senator
Byrnes is serving his first term in the
senate, although he was an incon
spicuous member of the house be

The character of last November's,
election iesult would have made Sen

comfortable for him. even were it not
for the constant attacks of Senator
Fluey P. teng of Ix>uisiann.
This is not to belittle the "King

every vulnerable joint jn the Arkan

the latter no good when he offered in
