Chicago. Discovery cf several new
eources of information resulted in the
uncovering of more corruption and
bribery that attend the acquittal ef
Lee' O'Nell Browne of the charge of
bribing legislator to vote lor Wil
liam Lorimer for United States Sen
ator. It was shown that a majority of 12
men who voted to discharge Browne
who was charged with handling the
purse strings In the campaign to buy
vote for Lorimer had been the guests
at a great Jollification and banquet
that concluded with a tour of various
places of amusement at a, late hour
of the night
So secure' did the participants in
this affair feel that they held the
wine dinner and "rounding up" le3S
than a week after the verdict was
returned In court. In this function
Attorney Charles Erbsteln, one of the
trla of ! lawyers who represented
Browne, and Who now Is charged with
having "fixed" at least one juror, is
declared to have played an important
part.
But even In the face of this open
Jollification, evidence of the use of
money In the handling of the case
Attorney's office but for the fact that
the two men who already have con
fessed Grant McCutchen, a Juror, and
Harry T. Stacy, a chauffeur were
dissatisfied with the . amount paid
them and believed they were being
"double-crossed."

BANK CASHIER SUICIDE.
Doors of Seaside Institution
Closed.
Seacide Rather than face a term
in state'.s prison and hundreds of his
fellow citizens who put their faith
and money Into the Bank of Seaside,
which he had wrecked to save, from
a financial crisis a .lumber company
controlled by hira and his brother, E.
N. Henninger, the cashier, committed
suicide on his doorstep here.
The bank did not open its doors
and its condition and the loss that
will be suffered by depositors in the
crash of the institution will not be
known until the bank examiner has
made an investigation.
The wrecking of the bank, with' its
tragic climax that came when the
cashier blew out his brains with a
rifle Just as a fellow citizen and
friend passed his residence, furnishes
as dramatic a story of high finance

Democratic Governor of New York.
LANDS IN FORESTS
MAY BE OPENED
Washington, D. C The forest ser
vice is preparing to open to home
stead entry a number of fertile,
though timbered valleys, within the
forest reserves of the Northwest. The
lands in question will not be elimin
ated from the reserves, but will be
listed (or entry under the act of June
11, 1906, which permits the home
steading of agricultural lands within
forest reserves. As soon as some
plan is devised to make sure that
these timbered valley lands will fall
exclusively Into the hands of bona
fide settlers who intend to make their
permanent residence in the reserves,
steps will be taken to get the lands
on the market, so to speak.
Henry S. Graves, who succeeded
Gifford Pinchot as forester, Is respon
sible for this new move, and is the
first official of the forest service who
has been willing to permit settlement
on forest reserve land that Is covered
with merchantable timber. Mr.
Graves has found, as a result of his
travels In the West thlj summer, that
there are a great many valleys, fol
lowing streams heading In the moun
tains, which could bo turned Into pro
fitable farms if cleared of their tim
ber. He concedes that some of the
western land now timbered, Is more
valuable for agriculture than for tim
ber culture, and such' lands be pro
poses shall be placed under cultivation.
