Washington", Oct, J. Specific charge
of corruption In tho Eighth Assembly dis
trict of New York county In the primaries ,
were laid at the doors of the Iloosefelt
managers to-day by Ogden L.. Mill-",
treasurer of tho Republican county com
mittee of Now York county.
The charges had been laid beforo Dis
trict Attorney Whitman, the witness said.
Documentary evidence tending to prove
the frauds were Introduced in evidence
by Mr. Mills.
The disclosures opened a new line of
Inquiry and it Is likely that witnesses will
be called from New York to testify. The
poll book of the Fourth election district
In the Eighth Assembly district was put
In evidence by Mr. Mills.
It disclosed the fact that the alleged
voters, all of whom were recorded for.
Roosevelt, liad cast their vutes in alpha
betical order, which, Mr. Mills suggested,
raised a strong presumption that the
rames had leen copied Ironi the published
list in the City Record nnd an equal num
ber of Roosevelt votes put into the ballot
More than a sixth of thoe nlleged to
have voted In alphabetical order for
Roosevelt had moved out of tho district
or ha'd died before the election. One man
recorded as voting was in the hospital
election day 'having his leg amputated,"
mid Mr. Mills.
The witness declared that the Repub
lican primaries as far as the Tuft mana
gers were involved were as clean as any
(Jection ever held In New York county,
ne charged that Louis Friedel, captain of
one of the election districts in the Eighth
Assembly district, had de-erted lYesident
Taft on primary election day Samuel
S Koenig, county chairman, learning of ,
tho fact, oall"d up rrteilel, who denied
that he had swung to Roosevelt. Tho re- '
turns from tho district, however, showed
a unanimous vote for the Roosevelt elec
tors and subsequently Friedel was given
an appointment in Comptroller I'render
"Your testimony indicates gros cor
ruption," suggested Senator I'omerene.
"That is the only inference to be drawn
from the results, " replird Mr. Mills.
Forced to Itepl)- lo Honker.
The witness declared that he had b"en
forced to make tho disclosures by the
repeated and persistent charges by Elon
II Hooker, treasurer of the Ilon-evet
committee, anil Judge Charles II Duel,
manager of Roosevelt's campaign in
New York county, that the Taft managers
had been guilty of frauds. Mr. Mills
estimated tho total expenditure made
by tho Taft managers in tho New York
county primaries to be a sum not exceed
ing $24,000 ami proabbly only about
121,000, which is less than half the amount
spent by tho Roosevelt managers, accord
ing to the official statement of E II .

"On March ?.". said he, "some one

extraordinary because the Eighth As

though tho Taft alternates received

Ho then told of similar instances in
other districts and added:
"I submit for your investigation a
duplicate of the poll book of the Fourth

testimony at Washington in which it was
said that the ballot boxes in his district
were Muffed for Itoosovelt nt tho pri
maries last spring. Mr. Friedel failed to
see Just, how the testimony nffected him.
"Of course a poll book which shows that
the votes had been oast in alphabetical
order would be significant," he said. Hut
I know nothing of that; I wan not an eleo
tion inspeotor. Why, the election won
ho quiut that I didn't even visit half the
polling places. The election inspectors
are the ones who must answer that chargo
if there are any grounds for it.
"Tho statement that I received my Job

and Preiidergost la absurd. Why, I
haven't oven seen l'rendergast since I
heard him speak at the corner of Orchard
and Grand streetn when Stimson wan run

get a Job here for three years and tho
mere fact that I got it only last August
means nothing at nil."
When asked who tho election inspectors
were Mr. Friedel said that ho knew they
were good, standi Republicans, but with
forty Inspectors In the diMrict it was im
possible for him to naino tho men who had
acted in tho Fourth.
"Wliy, even If tho ballot boxes were
stuffed," ho continued, "ns thoy were not,
an far as my knowledgo goes, no ono
would be crudo enough to copy names
from tho City ltrcod In alphabetical order.
"If they want to start an election in

At the Wood mill several employees
