"The (iovernmetit never calls as wit

ings growing out of tho same suit, was
the statement of Kdwin P. (Irosvenor,
special Assistant Attorney-General, who
is managing thu prosecution.
Though sales iu the United States last
year approximated $.VJ,noo.0i0 and sales
in foreign countries ."0,ii),U00, tho profits
of the distributing subsidiary the Inter
national Harvester Compiny of Atneriea
in 1011 were only llltMXKl, Mr. Haskins
testilied. Mr Haskins also said that
his company had never paid any divi
dends. He further teMitled that the distribut
ing company bought as chea ply as possible
from the manufacturing company and
that every effort was made to keep the
selling expenses to the lowest possible
Tint Governmont nttorneys tried hard
to elicit information that would change
this testimony, but Mr. Haskins stood by
I he first documentary exhibit produced
by Government Attorney Grosvenor
was a voting trust agreement, dated
August 12, 1002. This indicated that stock
given to (ieorgo W. I'orklns, Cyrus-H.
McCormlck and Charles Peering gave
them control of the alleged harvester
Another document was a list of officers
and directors and tiiomlsr of the commit
ted on finance, with Perkins as chairman.
Of the six members of tho llnanco com
nittee, the Government charges, four
are directors of the so-called stool trust.
They also nro meniliors of tho finance
committeeof the Steel CorKirntion. Those
named in tho'list submitted by Attorney
Grosvenor are Judge K. A. Gary, Nor
man H. Heam, George V. Perkins nnd
George K. Huker.
A third document was a trust agree
ment under which tho Government
charges George W. Perkins, Cyrus H,
McCormlck nnd Charles Peering hold tho
stock of the International Harvester Com
pany of Amorica in tnit.
Mr Funk told of the time and money
expended by. the Harvester corporation
in seeking to find a binder twine which
would bo proof against grasshoppers
nnd crickets. The Peering comiwny had
stalled out on Its research before tho
International company was formed, ho
said, but had been staggered by the
enormous cost of currying it out
"In Minnesota the llax wuh a waste
product of the farms, nnd we started
nuking twine out of it so us to stop lm
jKirting fibres from Mexico and other
troplc.il countries." explained Mr Funk.
"In eight or ten years we spent about
5 1,0011.(100 trying to make a twine out of
llax that would be bug proof."
Ho testified thnt the company's greatest
competitors were tho Minnesota State
Penitentiary. Pooro .V Co. of Molino
nnd the Independent Harvester Company
Mr. runk said that tho State of Minne
sota had tl.ooo.obo invested in the manu
facture of reapers and thnt he had been
informed that 5,00(l such machines were
shipped by Peero .V Co. of Molino last
year. He testilied that much of the stock
of the lndetx'ndenl Harvester Company
of Piano was held by farmers.
The Government attorneys by Interims
iug questions established several points
which they consider of great importmice,
Thev obtained names and dates of pur
chases which they believe help to uphold
tho Government's contention that tiie
Ha rvoslercorporntioiUias continued buy-
ing up coni-otltors,intil a recent date.
I They also obtained tho admission that
I although the coroiatioti now manufac
tures mom than a scorn of different sorts of

practically nothing except harvesters.

"GRAFT OFFICE" STORY
A. J. Johnson Tells of Having
CALLS AFFIANT PERJURER
.Mini Xiuiicil in StntcniPiit Snys
Policeman Sought to Pny
The allldavlt which Police Commis
sioner Waldo mentioned on tho witness
stand at the Aldcrinntilc hearing Into
the Police Department on Friday last
has not yet been turned over to tho
It was learned jtstcrday, however,
that Police Captain John T. Itclth of
tho Mncdnugul street station was tho
officer referred to as making the afll
davlt, which was to the effect that ho
had been told that He could be pro
moted to n captaincy --he was then a
lieutenant for $15,000.
He rofustd to pny the money and
was not promoted nt that time. Ho
was promoted on May 29, 1911, after
Mr. Waldo became Commissioner.
(Ion. Theodore A. Hlnghnm was Com
missioner nt the time of the transac
tions alleged In the aflldavit, which Is
now In Commissioner Waldo's posses
sion. Cen, lilnghairr's name Is not men
tioned In the allldavlt In any other con
nection than that Keith told his story
Commissioner Waldo has agreed to
furnish the affidavit to the committer.
He will be subpo-naed to produce It to
day and will obey the subpienn. It
was expected last night that the Bill
davit would be read Into the record at
this afternoon's session of the Inves
tigation. Those whose numes are men
tioned In the aflldavit also will be sub
ptrnaed. Capt. Holth. It was stated positively
yesterday, made Ills allldavlt voluntarily
und without pressure from his depart
ment. His promotion to the rank of
captain, nccordlng to the Information
so far gathered, cost him nothing nnd
the making of the aflldavit Is attrib
uted by some of his acquaintances to a
feeHng of gratitude he entertained forf
Commissioner Wnldo for the appoint
ment which he believed had been with
T.to . tmrs Mrntlnnrd.
Two names arp mentioned In the affi
davit, uccording to tho information
brought out yesterday. One of these Is
that of former I'nder Sheriff Alfred J.
Johnson, one time private secretary to
Mayor Hugh J. Urant.
The other Is that of Thomaj Hassctt,
now connected with the office of State
Hnglneer John A. Heusel nnd formerly
secretary of the Hoard of Water Supply.
Air, Johnson, after reading nn ac
count of tho affidavit as published yes
terday afternoon, gave out a state
ment denying any connection with tho
events told of In the aflldavit and him
self telling of an Investigation he causad
to be made Into a reputed "branch of
fice for the collection of police graft."
He also threatens n libel suit against
Commissioner Waldo and Capt. Ilelth
If the icported contents of tho affidavit
are proved to Ite such.
The ntll.lavlt, as lis contents have
been told by persons who lay claim to
knowing them, deals with Incident
dating back four years. Ah these In
formers tell the story of the affidavit,
Capt. Itelth, then a lieutenant, went to
tho office of Mr. Johnson, then an Un
der Sheriff, ut 299 llroadway, and talked
over with Mr. Johnson tho possibility
of Keith's being promoted to.u, cap
taincy. Continuing the story In the affida
vit, ns told by the Informers, Keith
says he then went with Johnson to the
office of Hnssett, socretnry of the Hoard
of Water Supply, In tho same building,
and that Hassttt asked him questions
nbout tho length of his connection with
the Police Department nnd his general
experience. A week later, he says, ha
went to tho homo of Mr. Johnson nnd
thnt Mr. Johnson told him that those,
having the power to make tho promo
tion wanted $15,000, Keith Is quoted as
swearing that he laid his statement of
tho matter before Oen. Hlnghnm. He
mude no pnyments nnd states that ho
was passed on tho list.
Friends of Capt. Keith say that ho
could not have made so large n pay
ment nt the time had he cared to do so,
because a considerable part of hi
money wns tied up In tho Knicker
bocker Trust Compnny, which ut that
time wns closed,
Mr. Johnson's statement, which fol
lowed the publication of the alleged
contents of the nllldavlt, Is ns follows:
This man Ilelth is a nils. 'ruble perjurer
and I shall formally charge him with per
Jury lo the lllstriv Mlorney I never
saw him hut a few times in my life, and
neer of my own seeking. My recollection
In I hi. I lie caui.i to see mo, using the nnnis
nf some one kn, asking ran to help him
to he promoted In the Police Department
He seemed lo he afraid that Ills record
was against him mid wanted to know if
there was not some one who could lima
him promoted for the payment of $10,000
or $lft,ooo, I told hint ol might off that ha
was a fool to think thai money could help
him, becnuse no one who had any real in
fliienca with uimiiii-aloiier Hliurliam would
take a dollar uf dirty mouey. 11
