Joseph Sorro Tolls Court He
Was Forced to Recan?
Testimony Against Cohen
>ow He Denies Perjury
>ji?,s Sullivan Relates Hom
She Aided M?sica in His
lohn Hoe proceeding to ascer?
tain whether Joseph Cohen, who is in
ging Sing death house for the murder
0f Barnett Baff, was convicted through
perjured testimony was started yester?
day before Judge Mclntyre in the
Court of General Ses? ions, with Joseph
Sorro, the star witness, missing.
Sorro swore at the murder trial that
Cohen had hired him to place a bomb
?n the home of Baff at Arverne in the
summer of 1913. His statements had
much to do with the conviction of
Cohen. Recently lie made the volun?
tary admission to District Attorney
Swann that he had perjured himself
at the Cohen trial. He asserted that
Antonio Cardinale and not Cohen was
the paymaster and real instigator of
the bomb plot.
Mr. Swann sought to corroborate
Sorro's story by supporting witnesses.
and when he had completed his inves?
tigation announced the John Doe pro?
ceedings. Since that time Sorro has
withdrawn the recantation he made to
Mr. Swann and declared that he lied
in his story to the prosecutor. He in?
sisted when he recanted to Deputy At?
torney General Alfred I.. Becker, who
has charge of tlie Baff case, that the
story he told at the Cohen trial was
true. He explained his statement to
Mr. Swann by saying that he feared
for his life if be did not comply with
the demand of two mysterious men,
who demanded that he clear Cohen.
Declare Sorro Recants Testimony
The inquiry is being conducted by
Assistant District Attorneys Alfred J,
Talley and Ferdinand P?cora. At the
opening yesterday Mr. Talley read into
the record a long statement signed by
his associate, Mr. P?cora. This in?
strument alleges that the testimony
given by Sorro at the trial of Cohen
was false and that he has since re?
canted in an affidavit all of it. The
statement alleges that:
"Joseph A. Sorro was feloniously
counselled, persuaded, induced sub
? : ed and procured so falsely, cor?
ruptly and feloniously to testify; and
ihat lohn Doe (the name John Doe
being fictitious, the true name of such
person being to the deponent un?

Southern Senator, in Closing
Speech to Congress, Says ft
Companies Rule Industry
Demands End of Combine
Speech Is Inserted in Record
in Absence of Report from
ihe Senatorial Committee
WASHINGTON', March 3.?Senator
! \ ardaman, of Mississippi, chairman
of the Senate Manufactures Com?
mittee, to-day inserted in the Congres
| sional Record a statement on the
?committee's investigation of the an
i thracite coal situation, charging that
! production of anthracite coal in the
! United States is controlled by eight
largo tranportation companies, which
through an almost complete monopoly
were able to fix prices and determine
the rate of production.
Chairman Vardaman explained that
the committee was unable to present
its report, as not all of the testimony
taken in hearings in Washington and
in the Pennsylvania coal fields had been
printed. He added that he had "gath?
ered together certain facts" which he
trusted would be of help to the next
Congress in dealing with the anthra?
cite coal question.
Testimony before the committee, he
asserted in his statement, had dis- :
closed, in bis opinion, that "there is '
! no commodity in common use that is
: so absolutely monopolized as the
anthracite coal production." Shortage
of anthracite during the war and the i
i existing high prices for the com?
modity, he said, were due almost en- '
tirely to this monopolistic control.
Transportation corporations eon- ,
.trolling production in the Pennsyl?
vania field the only source of mar-'
; ketable anthracite in North America
-were named in Senator Vardaman's
statement as follows:
"The Reading i the holding company
of the Philadelphia and Reading Coal
and Iron Company and the Jersey
Central, which in turn owns all of the .
stock of the Lehigh and Wilkes-Barre
Company', the Lehigh Valley, the
Relaware, Lackawanna & Western,
the Delaware & Hudson, the Lehigh
Coal and Navigation Company i which
own.- and controls the Lehigh and
New England', the Erie, and tbe New
York. Ontario & Western."
Although controlling but 72 per cent
of the actual production of anthracite.
the statement asserted, the eight com- '
panies had made it impossible for in?
dependent operators, to compete with
them on any fair bnsis.
"Notwithstanding the fact." said
the statement, "that the constitution
of Pennsylvania prohibits a transpor?
tation company from engaging in
mining, these transportation com?
panies are in this business of not only
transporting ibis coal, but of min?
Expressing the hope that Congress
might see the necessity of legislation
to protect the people of the United
States from what he described as
"the greed, cupidity and avarice of
these soulless corporations," the Mis?
sissippi Senator recommended that
"if the constitution of Pennsylvania,
which forbids the transportation com?
panies to mine coal is a dead letter
in that state," the Federal government
under the interstate commerce clause
of tho nation's ('(institution compel
the divorcement of transportation
companies from mining coi porat ions.
Tbe statement made the additional
recommendation that the price of coal
bo fixed by the government at a rate
which would guarantee a fair return
to tbe mining companies and which
would "vouchsafe to the. people of
? America an ample supply of anthra?
cite coal at n reasonable price."
While payment of excess royalties
, said to amount in the case of the I.o
i cust Mountain Coal Company to the
I great Gerard estate to $1.04 a ton in
! 1918-? constituted 1he first cause of the
high price of coal, tbe statement, said
I that was "not the full story." The
?other causes given were the means

of the Intercontinental company, and'
asserts that the Public Service Com- I

recommended to the Board of Estimate
that the company "receive a donation
of public funds amounting to several >
hundred thousand dollars," and he !
justifies his own action in paying the j
company for its work.
The Controller's statement was not !

of his files the following letter from

he claimed tended to show that the

Chief of Police Patrick Tracy an?
nounced to-day that the mystery sur?
rounding the murder of Mrs. .Julia
Wilkins Thursday night had been
solved, though no arrest had been
"We are only awaiting develop?
ments." Chief Tracy said. He added
that no information could be given
beyond this fact because it would in?

While the chief would not say where
the criminal was run down. In- in?
dicated the detection had been made
iv New York.
According to statements from \'as
sau County detectives, that at least
two of the three burglars who were
accessories to the crime were thought
to be old offenders, it is believed the
criminal has been traced through
fingerprints left on the weapons with
which Dr. Walter Wilkins was beaten
and his wife clubbed to death in the
doorway of their cottage.
Both Chief Tracy and County De?
tective Carmen Plant had promised
arrests to-day, and it is suspected the
authorities are suspending arrest of
the culprit to obtain clews to 1he
whereabouts of the others.

this is more important in food products than in anything else. And that is

That is why we insist upon the Wilson label always carrying its full
