But this case is not the case of the Tribune; It Is the case of this government: It la the government of the' Vnlted State that I Involved." I'a liter Asks Question. At this Juncture the first Interruption occurred. If came from Senator t'aynter of Ken tucky, a member of the committee and supporter of It views. He asked the New York senator to specify some-of the wit nesses he would have called that wore not summoned at the instance of the Tribune. Mr. Hoot said he would have compelled the attendance of the cashier of the Hoist law bank to aliow the financial operations conducted there In connection with the al leged bribery; the "Yarboro Bros., who are supposed to have been present at some of the Interview between Brown and White"; Governor Deneen and Speaker Shurtleff. In regard to Governor Deneen we were told that he could -testify only in reference to the question of accuracy," said Mr. t'aynter. men, reaponaea air. itoot, "you are still folk) wing the Tribune as If that paper were the guardian of the senate." Admitting that Mr. Shurtleff had been called Mr. Root said that his testimony had been merely of a formal character, whereas owing to the fact that he waa cloaeted day and night with. Lorlmer, he should hav been questioned most carefully. Turning to the testimony before the sen ate, Mr. Root undertook to how that even though Incomplete, It did not Jusify the committee's conclusion. ( Democrat Avho Voted for I.orimer. Mr. Root, told of a democrat member of the Illinois legislature who admittedly had gone to Shurtleff room which were oc cupied by Mr. Lorimef,-to arrange about federal patronagd and rapidly passed to the connection of Lee O'Neill Browne with the case." This 'man was declared to' be Mr. Lorlmer a chlel agent, - a. fact which rest on the testimony of Browne himself, and I not the aubject of dispute". he said. The senator'' then undertook1 tb ' show that Browne nad been instrumental In procuring tb thirty d?nocratio fotea cast., for Lorl mer. ' ' T. - .1 , Speaking of the' action of the democrats who followed the leadership of y Browne these motives were of thoHe democrats and were not apparent to his party colleagues Describing the two meetings In St. louls of Browne's followet In southern Illinois, about whl-h It was testified that at the first each member participating as paid H.KO. and at the second meeting, held on July 1&. each wa paid Mr. Root said that the testimony of witnesses differed. The New York senator showed that thiee witnesses testified to recelvliw each and one witness. Representative Wil son, who was charged with making the payment on behalf of Browne, denied that any money waa distributed. Wlllson' Testimony Hldleulrd. Mr. Root ridiculed the testimony of Will- son that thl morning was held (or tne purpose of discussing the question of Rlv ing a banquet for Browne and pointed out that the two men were indicted on charges of perjury before they would admit that they had been present. The senator said that liorlmer'a lawyers tried to shut out all testimony concerning the .lulv meet ing on the ground that the gathering wm for the purpose of distributing a legisla tive J'Jackpot" which had no connection with the election of lorlmer. "Back of it." exclaimed Mr. Root, "cor ruptlvn having been going on so long that minds had become accustomed to it. men in the legislature had become so calloused to the intciulty of it they Joked about II. They nicknamed their corruption fund as admitted by Mr. Lorlmer's own lawyer." Mr. Root asserted that "it wa perfectly Immaterial" whether the seven "tainted'" vote disclosed by the investigation were deducted' also from the 202 votes cast on Joint ballot. The latter method, he said, would still leave Lorlmer a majority. '-'What difference does it make?" he de manded, "whether Lorlmer money wa used to give Lorlmer a majority or to re duce the totar-vole when either is ac complished by means of corruption. "The argument of supporter of Lorimer is that If the 'tainted' votes are deducted from the Lorimer vot of 108 they should also be deducted from the total vote of 202, which would leave the total 196 votes, of which Lorlmer would have Itll." When Mr. Root concluded Senator Hole, the venerable republican enate leader, as serted that ome one should come to the rescue of the state of Illinois and say whether the arraignment of her name and fame had been warranted. Hnlley Defend Illinois. Tteplylng, Senator Bailey said that if Mr. Roof proposition were accepted then there has not been an honest election In Illinois in many years. Mr. Bailey went o far a to say that mr. .uiiom. wno - nas served Illinois so ably for many year, wa elected by such legislature as Mr. Root described. Although declaring that every one acquitted Mr. Cul- lom of knowledge of corruption, Mr. Bailey said If Mr. Root' proposition affected Lorimer it affected Cullom likewise, ARCHBISHOP RYAN BETTER Rally Follow Revtfal Period, but K Hope It Entertained for HI Recovery, t-1-iiL.ADK.L.niiA, teii. i.
