A fairly caustic by-way in the scandal following the election of Chicago Republican machine boss William Lorimer to the Senate; Adams here defends Hines, a Chicago lumberman, who was reported to have said that he had raised a fund of $100,000 "with which to 'put Lorimer over.'" For more on the Lorimer controversy, see his entry in American Nat'l Biography.
