Bxl 'resident Tuft urged yesterday the
International l'eiico Forum, of which hi
ts honorary president, Ho forgot jioaco for
a tlmo and do a little lighting. Hp was
peaking of the .lunger In the unchecked
growth of "unsound economic Ideas nnd
half baked socialism" when lio said:
"1 express the hoe that whenever we
ee :i head that'll likely to develop Itself
Into something obnoxious c lll hit It."
Thuae who Biit at table with Sir. Taft
nil with tho other forum members ap
plauded this tinpeaoeful suggestion were
"Vincent Actor, Seth 1ow, president of the
National Civic Federation; Oscar Straus,
Henry Clown. 1'rvsldent F. D. Underwood
of tho Krle. Itallroad and John Wesley
Others present at the annual merlins
nd lunchiton, which huh held ut the Hull

Mr. Taft looked thin but fit. lie spent
tfame time preceding the luncheon swap
ping dieting stories mid programmes with
Mr. Horton nnd chatting with Mr. Astor,
who looked very boyish anion his older
associates of tho forum.
Mr. Taft when called on said that the
great trouble nowadays was th.it people
who held sound economic theories didn't
troublo to combat unsound preachments.
"We, read a kpeech or are subjected to
the trial of listening to one that advo
cates u lot of theories, and we say, 'No
one Is fool enough to believe that, and wo
promptly forget all about It. Then In
two or threo years wo find that people
who we believed had great common sense
have accepted those same theories. We
havo been proceeding upon iin unsafe as
sumption." Ho praised the work that the forum is
doing In sending out speakers "who are
meeting and unswerlng tho men who are
sowing the seeds of discontent." '
Mr. Iajw described the advantages of the
Ncwlands act in railroad arbitration and
predicted that soon public opinion would
,nake railroad strike Impossible. When
you get the warring factions In confer
ence with each other the rest la easy,
World pence was also the theme of
Heitr Clews, who said that Mr. Taft

Tho letter was made available to-day

Oov. Glynn tins always maintained that
he never attended a conference where the
Impeachment was talked of, and when the
letter was produced before him to-day ho
admitted being at the conference on by-
dro-eloctrlc and direct primaries bills.
"I was at this conference and I fought
fought like a tiger for the hydro-electric
bill," said the Governor. "I repeat I
was never at any conference over the Im
peachment." "Thei Sulzer story as It relates to me Is
untrue," said John II. Delanej, Statu
Commissioner of Hfflclently and Hcor.omy,
to-day. "1 knew nothing of the incidents

til I read a New York newspaper on

GRAND JURY INDICTS 24.
Conspiracy and Grand Larceny
Chnraeil In Suffolk County.
KlvEitiiicAP, 1.. I.. Jan 22. Twenty-four
Indictments, charging State officials and
contractors with conspiracy, grand larceny
and malfeasance ln ottlce were handed to
Supreme. Court Justlco Isauo Knpper this
afternoon by the special Grand Jury which
has been Investigating since last Aum.-t
the construction and maintenance of eight
highways in Suffolk county.
All of these roads were constructed
within two years, livery one of them 1ms
broken down, John A. Hennessy went
over them first last May. A month later
he and his assistants wero digging under
the surface to see what the contractors
had done and what the inspectors and en
gineers had approved. Without going Into
the statistics on Imperfect construction
they found that out of an aggregate bid
price of $310,000 oti'the eight toads there
was a shortage in assigned materials
alone of J6S.O0O.
Over the details of thin fraud the Grand
Jury has been working. They heard the
testimony of Mr Hennessy, Henry P.
Morrison, Joseph Curran and Charles M.
Hilton Hut the Jurymen went further
than that. District Attorney Hnlph C
Greene Instituted a little Inquiry of his
own. feeling that he, a llepubllcun, might
strike nn equitable balance between the
Murphy and Sulzer factions In the county
and assure the citizens that no one who
had done wiong would escape. The re
sult yesterday was the Indictment of sev
eral of thu friends both of Murphy '"id
een Oltlcl.lN Involved.
There wero seventeen Indictments for
conspirac), six for grand larceny In the
first th grot, and one for inulfeasance.

Mr, Hennessy after hn discovered what
was going on. Similar considerations
caused the Grand Jury to call attention
to the Ilabylon village road and to tho
Amltyvllln road by declaring that they
were fraudulently constructed and would
fall to pieces soon.
The Grand Jury filed Into court at 0:!I0
Uils afternoon and eighteen men responded
as their nanus were called. James W.
Katon, the foreman, then handed up tho
largest sheaf of Indictments that any
Judge In Suffolk county has ever received.
Judge ICapper thanked tho Jurymen for
their long and patient labors. It was
learned that their long und patient labors
had been somewhat extended by tho de
termination of. certain Jurymen to write
Into tho presentment a eulogy of former
Governor William Sulzer. It did not up

Tho presentment declares the belief of
the Grand Jury that the officials of the

that contiacts were given out to thosv

to those In Suffolk county could be found
In nt Hast fifty of the sixty-two counties
in the yute.
"Tho way to go after the guilty," he
said. "Is to get physical proof out of the
