THINKS IT MEAN
Of Editor Hinman to Insinuate
That His Visit to Bliss
COMPLAINT THAT MB. NOHE MAKES
Boodle Hunter Given All the Time
They Want Speaker Reassures
Sprlnpfleld, Ills.. April 20. The boo
dle investigating committee did not
make its report to the house yesterday
Chniiman Itiuaker asked for further
time, and it was granted. The house
voted, also, to defer Editor lliiuuan's
appearance before the bar of the bouse
uutil after the reiort of the committee
had been submitted, with the under
standing that he will be called then if
the report Is not satisfactory. The
scope of Editor Ilinman's testimony is
a matter of much speculation. 'When
the committee adjourned shortly be
fore -2 a. m. yesterday no member
would talk, and all continue secretive.
Noh lias Nothing- to Conceal.
Representative None, who was men
tioned in the testimony of Editor Illn
uau before the investigating commit
tee as one of the men who was seen to
enter the office of Colonel E. U. Iliiss,
in Chicago, states that it is true that
he had been to Colonel Bliss' ofUce,
"Colonel Bliss and I are personal
friends," said None, "and r frequently
visit his ofllce. I have also conferred
with him in regard to the t: action
legislation. I am ready and anxious
to go before the committee and tell ev
erything that has occurred between
Colonel Bliss and I. There has Ihvmi
nothing illegitimate or improper in
anything that has occurred. Nothing
that either Colonel Bliss or mvself
would object to making public. "
Comments on Editor Hinman.
"So far as the use of my name by
Mr. Hinman is concerned I have only
to say that It was cowardly and con
temptible. He did not say that my vis
It to the office of Colonel Bliss was for
an illegitimate purpose, but he threw
out the insinuation by nsing this inci
dent in defense of his 'boodle editorial.'
r have been standing here all winter
fighting traction legislation in the in
terest of Mr. 1 1 in man, and for him to
couple up my name with these charges
of corruption was unjustifiable.
MUNICIPAL, OWNERSHIP FIGHT
Will Hegln Again aa Soon as the Hoodie
Inquiry Is Oat of the Way.
Springfield, Ills., April 29. An Im
portant conference on the municipal
ownership was held In the house ju
diciary committee room last evening.

Bowles, Clettenberg, Corigan and Pat
The meeting was presided over first
by Stewart and later by Pend.trvis.
Representative Donaghue acted as sec
retary. There was an informal discus
sion of the course to be pursued in
relation to the traction question. Ear
lier in the day Representative Third
ly haddiscussed with some of the Muel
ler bill men a proposition for a com
promise, taking the I.indly bill as a
basis. Tbe chief inducement offered
was to change the section in rela
tion to railway certificates by provid
ing for possession under foreclosure
for ten years instead of three years.
This proposition was discussed brief
ly at the conference.
Without passing definitely upon It
it was decided that whatever compro
mise should be made must be made on
the Mueller bill: .It was also deter
mined that as soon as the boodle in
quiry Is completed and the house is
ready to proceed with the considera
tion of the traction question the fight
will be resumed in the most aggressive
manner. For the purpose of conferring
with IJndly and others of the regu
lar house organization a sub-cominit-
tee was appointed" consisting of Repre
sentatives Tice, Corigan,. Church, Clet
tenberg and I'endarvis.

tricts to the Chicago sanitary district
Taggart's bill making an appropria
tion of $14,000 in aid of the Illinois

hope that civil service in Illinois may
be given a "black eye.' "
