LORIMER IN PLEA
Senator Tells His Story to the
Veterans of Southern
STANDS FOR OLD METHOD
Holds Movement. of Procre-ssiTe-s as
Wrong as Secession YV
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
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

He chose the latter as offering an

less embarrassment than if the sena
