Mr. rtoosevelt. almost at the opening,
gives the lie in these wonU:
"As regards the statement of Mr Pen

rent, or knowlege Mr Miss n.xkod the
Standard Oil people for Jirxi.ooo, or any
other sum, or received niich sum from
them, it is an unqualified falsehood "
Further on Col. Hoosevelt compares
Senator Penrose to a grafting policeman,
"This language is precisely th language
that might Is used by a blackmailing
lico officer in a big city in advising the
keeper of a law breaking liquor saloon or
n gambling houw to contribute. liberally.

tility in certain quarters' If this Ian-1

promises Hint Mn.a, Mr. Gibson's as

District Attorney Whitman has just
obtained through his assistants and a
Burns detective information as to names,

of money involved, preparation of three,
false affidavits nnd other details nf a
conspiracy against graft investigators.
An Kast Side police captain, two mem

Groen and "Doo" Myers (also called "Blck
Myers), nn ex-district lender of Tam

Although no police officer higher than
tho captain attended conferences held
in a Tenderloin hotel and inthree saloons,
tho Hums detective's report connecU
one police inspector and the light hand
man of another inspector with the con
spiracy. Tho Burns detective so deceived
the conspirators into believing that hi

men to swear out false affidavits against
county officials investigating graft tli

Tammany leader and tho ex-Assembly

New Jersey side of the Hudson River
Desperation Heft-eta Conspiracy.
The conspiracy was begun and built
up because of the. desperation of the "vice

The dust had scarcely settled after thn
August raids on eighteen "vice trust"
houses under Assistant District Attorney
Smith when various county official
began to get anonymous letters threaten
ing the lives of the graft investigators.
Xo attention was paid to these letters.
Three Burns men, even before the letters
had begun to arrive, had been instructed
to hang around where the crowd later
suspected of sending Ihe letters was wont
One of these Burns detectives was told
to strike up an acquaintance with men
who frequent a certain saloon in Seventh
avenue north of Fourteenth street. Then
two other saloons, one on Sixth avenue
and another on First avenue south of
Fourteenth strect.were found to be places

The detective who sought to make
friends in the Seventh avenue saloon is
a dapper young man whose manner and
dress were pleasing to the loungers around
the saloon. He "made a Hash" of much
money at psychological moments, but
tonholed handbook men and bet regularly
on races in other States and in Canada.
His money and his frequent bets impressed
the men he wanted to know and they took
him into their crowd.
On the night of August IS, about twenty
four hours after the raids by Mr, Smiih
on eighteen of the thirty-two disorderly
houses run by Goldberg, Green and others
in the "vice trust," a former police, watri

who is of shady reputation, Green, who
is also known as French; Myers, Gold
