lo delegate to the commission
power to require reports of violation

constituted a taking of the railroad's

and therefore in violation of the con-

La Follette quoted from the
testimony given by lOdward 1 lines, a
Chicago lumberman, before the Lorl-
mer Investigating committee of the
Uitinols legislature, regarding Mr.

Senator Aid rich and Penrose, in
which Mr. Hines said Mr. Aldrich re-
peatedly had impressed upon hlni the
Importance of Lorlmer's election and
had told hlni that President Taft was
especially concerned in Mr. Lorl-
mer's behalf.
"There Is no proor," said Mr. La
Follette. "that the president was in-
terfering, but I think there was a
scheme to put Lorlmer through, and
•t was believed the use of the presi-
dent's name was used in a telegram
and no doubt that It was used behind
locked doors and drawn screens, it
neiped to Influence members who
could not be reached otherwise."
Discussing Hines' activity in tho
Lorlmer campaign, which was ac-
counted for oil the ground that Lorl-
mer would favor a duty on lumber,
Mr. La Follette said that during the
last Lorlmer investigation by the
senate Hines was much in evidence
about the capital at Washington.

Catarrh Caused Deafness.
Mr. William Bauer, Hurton, Texas,
Some four years ago l lost the
hearing in my left ear. I went to a
specialist, who said it was caused by
catarrh. I took a course of treatment
for It and had my hearing temporarily
restored. However I lost it again in
the same manner as previously^
Now, I am happy to say, after fol-

with it. I have recovered my hearing
completely. Accept my thanks for
your advice. I shall sing the praises

pearl discoveries along Ihe Kentucky
river at this point, came here to'seek
the gems.
Bodies Decomposed
The bodies had been hanging in the
open air for probably a day or two,
as decomposition had already set In,
and the feces of the men were so
. 'ily swollen that they were hard-
iy recognizable. No clothing or any-
thing about the four men was to be

t ification.
There has been no trace of the
