JUAREZ. Meat., July 12. The de
parture today of all rebel troops ex
cept a small garrison of 200 men was
regarded as proof of the rebel lnten
tion not to attempt to fight at Juarez.
The government forces, however, can
not repair the Mexican Central Rail

General Pascual Orozco, Jr., denied
today that there was any disaffection
of consequence in his ranks. In a state
ment he said:
"The revolution in Mexico will trl
tip:ph,' because It is Just and has the
support of the Mexican people. That
forces of Madero occupy from day to
day points of vantage is not regarded
as important, since they never will be
in control of more soil than that upon
which they stand.'"

Slogan, He Declares.
WASHINGTON, July 12. The Senate
failed again today to vote on the Lea
resolution to declare vacant the seat
of William Lorlmer, of Illinois.
Consideration for Senator Lorlmer,
woo held the floor for five hours,
speaking in his own defense, induced
the Senate to take a recess at 4:10
o'clock until 10 o'clock tomorrow
An attempt will be made to reach a
vote tomorrow, but a bitter attack on
Senator Kern, which characterized Mr.
Lorlmer's speech today, and possible in
jection of arguments by Senator La
Follette or otherB, may prolong the
debate into next week. Mr. Lorlmer
charged Senator Kern with misstating
the facts, with "sliming and smearing
over the record," and with making
charges against Lorlmer for', which
there was no ground of fact or
. Kern Challenged to "Make Good."
Mr. Lorlmer issued a direct challenge
to Senator Kern to "point to" anything
in his private financial, commercial or
political life," where Mr. Lorlmer had
been guilty of wrongolng. He pledged
himself to resign, "relieve the Senate
of the embarrassment of a vote," walk
from the Senate chamber, never to re
turn. If Senator Kern "made good."
The Indiana Senator was absent from
the chamber during the Lorimer at
tack, as were Senators Lea and Kenyon,
against whom' Mr. Lorlmer had also
been denunciatory during his speech.
When Senator Kern returned' to the
chamber the Impression Bpread that he
would answer Senator Lorlmer before-
the final vote is taken.
Four Confessions Reviewed.
The evidence upon which Lorlmer's
expulsion from the- Senate is demanded
was taken up In detail by the accused
Senator. He reviewed the case of the
"four conressors," as he termed them,
upon whose alleged confessions that
they had received money at Springfield,
III., much of the case against him had
been built. Charles A. White, he said,
was an acknowledged perjurer; while
he declared that Beckemeyer, Ll.k
and Holstlaw, the other three, hLxi
never confessed being paid anything
for voting for Lorlmer.
Mr. Lorimer said that the proceeding
against Beckemeyer in Cook County
has no been Intended to disclose cor
ruption In the Illinois Legislature, but
to destroy Lorimer. He said Becke
meyer never said anything . about
"Lorimer money" until subjected to the
"third degree," a process also Inflicted
upon Holstlaw. , '
Boyhood Friends Defended.
The Illinois senator took exception to
Senator Kern's reference to his as
sociates, among whom were "HInky
Dink" Kenna, "Manny" Abrams and
Two of these men, he said, had been
referred to by the Indiana senator as
"saloonkeepers" but that reference
had been striken out of the printed
record, whether because the senator
had been "chasing a ghost at Balti
more and was afraid to meet the sa
loon men," he could not say.
The reference to Kenna afforded Mr.
Lorlmer another opportunity to defend
his friend of boyhood days.
"None," he said, "have lifted up more
of the fallen or helped more people on
to a better life than Michael O. Kenna."
Mr. Lorlmer took up the testimony of
Clarence S. Funk, general manager of
the International Harvester Company,
who testified that Edward Hlnes had
asked him for money to pay for the
Funk's Statement Contradicted,
He declared it had been shown con
clusively that Hlnes was In Washing'
ton and not in Chicago at the time the
conversation with Funk was alleged to
have taken place.
Funk's statement that the Interna
tional Harvester. Company never made
campaign contributions was contra
dicted. "I state it to you on my honor as a
man and a senator." Lorimer said, "that
If you eyer have another investigation
I will bring witnesses to prove that I
met two Illinois men, one a Democrat,
and the other a Republican, the latter
of whom - told me he had received
several contributions from Funk and
the former that Funk had given him
$5000 for a Democratic campaign. In
view of these facts, I would take Mr.
Hines' testimony In preference to that
of Mr. Funk."
Mr. Lorimer confessed to friendly re
lations with Mr. Hlnes, but said that
he seldom saw him.

Flood of Oratory Promised.
Chairman Adamson, of the House
committee on Interstate and foreign
commerce, asserted tonight that the
matter of free tolls to American ships
and of discrimination against railroad
owned ships passing through the canal
should have been eliminated from the
'If there should be any delay in
the legislation to open the canal the
fault cannot be laid at our door," he
said. "We urged that In this match
less enterprise the Government be al
lowed to demonstrate the results of
its work by opening the canal un
hampered by the demands of special in
terests. If the representatives of
those Interests had consented we would
have omitted those provisions both as
to railroads and exemption of Amerl
can ships from tolls and authorized the
President- to open the canal.
Chairman Adamson contended that
the Question of free American ships
and the rajlroad-owned vessels proo
lem should have been dealt with sep
arately than by direct legislation.
The Senate leaders behind the Pan
ama bill were firm in their opinion
that the measure would be taken vp
as soon as reached in the regular 01

BVltlsh protests however, undoubtedly
will open the flood gates of oratory
both for and against the bill and will
prolong Its consideration.
