LORIMER IN PLEA FOR VINDICATION Senator Tells His Story to the Veterans of Southern Illinois. STANDS FOR OLD METHOD Holds Movement. of Procre-ssiTe-s as Wrong as Secession YV Watman Replies. Duquoin. 111., Aug. 25. The struggle of progressive republicans against the old order of things Is as great a men ace to the country as the secession of the southern states in 1S61. according to Senator Lorlmer. The fight of the Insurgents "means as much -as the war of the rebellion," he said. Only one oratorical effort of his ha equaled in pathos the speech he deliv ered before the Southern Illinois Old Soldiers' and Sailors' Reunion asso ciation here yesterday. That was tho occasion when he sought to vindicate himself of the charge of bribery that had been made against him before tho senate. ASKS TETERASS' AID. ' Yesterday he' equaled his previous record to- eloquence and fervor, if not lor duration, pleading for the retention of the old older of things, and against the order of progressives. Republi cans who believe in the initiative and referendum or the recall were read out of the party by him and were b'anded as socialists. Wrapping the tatteted banner of the civil war about his ofllce and waving alctt the Pag of Washington and the 13 original states, he quaveringly be- seeched the veterans to rally once ' more in defense of "freedom and the people's government" and put down this army o iaaders who seek to de stroy representative government Ac cording to him, progressivelsm is the only thing under the "blue firmament" which can destroy the constitution and the nation. ASSAILED BV AVAYMAV. A few hours later State's Attorney John E. W. V. ayman, Bpeaking from the same rostrum and to the same au dience, assailed the "man who lifts his hand to stay the progress of thA. onwaTa march to a better govern ment," calling him an "enemy to us all." The people of so'. thern Illinois, par ticularly the old soldiers and Bailors, have in two days been treated tothre.i republican speeches, one progressive by Walter Clyde Jones, the only out and out gubernatorial candidate in the field; one standpat by Senator Lori mer, and one insurgent by State's At torney Wayman. a potential candidate for governor. Now they do not know what to think. Senator Lorimer and Mr. Wayman were scheduled to occupy the plat form together, but the committee on arrangements, fearing a clash, Chang- j ed the program so as to allow the sen- j ator to speak in the afternoon and the state's attorney from Cook county was given his choice between the morning and evening. WILLING! TO BE "SEEN." He chose the latter as offering an opportuity to "reply" if there was any thing to "reply to" in the senator's speech.
