There are those mean enough te hint
that Bourne la secretly aiding Fulton,
who is not popular at the White House
so that he, Bourne, alone will control

Ms aslduously cultivated friendship
with the president.
At the name time Senator Bourne baa
been favoring ex-Congressman Hermann
ever since he came to Washington. He
deprecated the trial here and waa close
to being. called aa a witness during
his trial. ' This resulted from Bourne's
connection with the raising of money
