The statement that five men would b

hold of a friend of till alleged KO-bt-tween
wau confirmed yesterday by one
of tho Investigators. In addition to this
It was not only Intimated, but was as-
sertixl openly, that when this case
olfted to the bottom It will be found that
the same men who were behind the whole-
stvle horse poisonings of a year ago arc
the men who planned the murder of Hart.
DrnKiiet to I'nslPli f.nllt.
It was said that the alleged go-be-twe-n
was a conspicuous figure In the
hore poltonlng cast and that his arrest
is being delayed only bec.ni It Is eie
fclred to confront him with such evidence
as will break him down when his examina
tion lMlns. One of the otllclals now In
vestlg'tlnc the case said last night:
"Suspicion points to a man wha ha.s
been under arrest as a horse tolsoner and
who Is now one of the otllcers of a live
poultry association. Inspector Kaurot
has fixed a dragnet to fasten the guilt
upon this man and his associates."
Kvery effort was made, yesterday to
find this man. Inquirers were told at his
ofllce that he was out and that no one
there knew where ho lived. Police and
District Attorney's men admitted that
suspicion pointed to him. that he was
under surveillance and that at the proper
time he would be brought In and ques
tioned about every phase of the murder.
While neither the police nor Assistant
District Attorney Deuel aro disclosing
their hands, It can 1 said that this man
and five others are lelng closely watched,
and that If one arrest Is made there will
oe five or six others. It was learned
that tho District Attorney's olllce Is hope
ful that Uio arrests may come within the
next twenty-four hours.
One of the surprising -things In the case
la that letters sent by men who knew
that the gunmen were waiting for iifT
are now Ix-lng used to round up those
who backed the murder. It was hinted
that the letters were written by a man
who told Mr. Baft he would lw spared
If hn could outbid those who paid the
Other SI en lnr Attacks.
Harry Buff, who charges that an or
ganization of retail jioultry dealers, not
the men whose methods his father exposed
two or three yeais ago, has said that this
crowu wouiu eventually iiirn tneir alien-
tton to A. T. Pearson and the manager of
the Mve Poultry Auction Company. Mr.
Pearson la Inclined to think he Is In some
danger and ho Intimated yesterday that
his stay in New York may be brltf.
The general manager of the I.lie Pout
try Auction Company Is Herbert A. Kmer
eon. Hn said lesteiday ht.it the talk of
killing htm was nil "bunk" and then he
proceeded to outline the pait that hls
company played In Mr. Baft's scheme to
make the jioultry market independent and
to f 01-00 hU small competitors out of busi
ness. He admitted that It was through his
company that Baff and Pearson, both big
Independent dealers, had effected their
plans and he acknowledged that he Is
ti.tibably the "most cusseJ" man In the
business, but he asserted that "cussing"
was about as far as his critics would gu.
As for Harry Baft's statement that he
knew- who was responsible for his father's
death, Mr. Kmerson said ho never knew
this young man to go far wrong in sizing
up a situation that centred around tho
According to his outline of the matter,
the poultry market up to aluut four years
ago was absolutely controlled by the so
called "poultry trust." The membrs of
this organization, of whom Mr. Baff was
one, recolved all the shipments from the
West and no one not a member of the
organization could get a shipment.
Prices were tlxtd by agreement once a
week, and tho retailers, or "kosher killers"
as they are called by the poultry dealers,
paid the sima wholesale price and sold at
the same retail price. These men were
practically the solo buyers of live fowl
from the receivers. They formed the
Ilve Poultry Dealers Association, with
office at 18 Tenth avenue. They did a
thriving business. No momher of the
"poultry trust" sold nt retail and every
thing was harmonious.
Mnde Knoirn Their Methods.
Then Baff decldid to do a little more
than receive live poultry from the West.
He established his own slaughter house
and he established retail stores until he
llnally had four of them bisldes his plaen
In IVmI Washington Market. His activi
ties hromrht down upon him the condom
nitlon of the "poultry trust," He got out
and In order to promote himself as nn
independent dealer he begim to make pub
lic the methods of the "trust."
When he did that tho "trust" began
to break down and when thirteen of Its
members wero sentenced nnl fined cer
tain Westoni shippers saw their oppor
tunity to get Into New York with their
live poultry. One of thei-o men was
Hmert-on and he sold the first carload of
jioultry to Haff after the latter announced
himself as an Independent dealer.
Another factor then entered In tho per
hon of the National Car Iot Live Poultry
Shippers Association. This organization
was nnx'ous to do more business In New
York anil couldn't underMund why so
many of Its fowls wero either killed or
stolen In tho rallioad yards r otherwise
iiiHilo unfit for the market. They sent
A. T. Pearson here to find out about It.
Pen 1 son met Baft Just as Moli 11s he
got here ami Baff told him the wlmlo
ultUHtlon. Besides arousing tho Western
shlpiwrs to the possibility of doing nv.re
business the disintegration of the "trust"
prompted several local men to get Into
tii game. Thn ,lve Poultry Auction

The police have been pursuing a vigor

the room whero It occurred they found a
quantity of letters ami pipers written

reveal whether the society was the bennv
olent organization It posed us being.
Most of the letters and papers wore
celvers and there Is no more fixing of
prices for tho week.
The small retailers of the Hast Rldo
couldn't accommodate themselves to these
new conditions. They liked to tell thel
customcrs that all tho wholesalers wero
charging so much, anil that all the re
tailers were charging Just enough more to
make It wrtli their wh'.le to bo In busi
ness. But Baff saw how he could use the
auction company to boost his retail busi
ness. Being the largest of the lnde"ndent
dealers and having started the tight w hich

Haft was bidding strong everybody thought
the poultry market was nourishing and
other receivers bid accordingly. The re

auction s.iles paid much more than Bait
had for his extra carloads.
These new condition, which many of
tho poorer retailers could not understand
except In their results, became the chief
topic of dlxcusslon at the meetings of the
l.lve Poultry Dealers Association. Tho
members went back to their little mar
kets with bitterness In their hearts. They
denounced Baff in one of their own race
who had betrayed them. They looked
upon him as such an oppressor as they
had left Hussia to avoid. They knew that
the "chicken pullers" hated him. They
knew that the Hast Side supports men
who will assault and kill for a price.

All of the payments on this last call, as

That sterling exchange will undoubtedly

Mrs. Stilson Hutchlns in Con
tempt Unless She Testi
fies. Says Judpc.
91,000,000 WILL INVOLVED
.Mrs. Stilson Hutchlns, widow of the
one time owner of the Washington Totf,
refused yesterday to answer questions
relating to her husband's mcnUI condition
Just before hie death In 1912. She had
been summoned before Special Commis
sioner Houghton In tho Federal Bulldis
to give testlmejiy In a suit broucht In
Washington, D. C. by Lee Hutohlns. the
youngest son of the publisher, to break
his father'n will, by which he Ui to re
ceive only JO per cent, of the 14,000,000
Tho matter of Mrs. Hutchlns's refusal
WJ.S taken txforo Judgo Hand In his oillees
In the Woolworth Building, and reporters
were cxcludsl, although It was not nn
tx parte matter. Aftor hearing her, plesi
that sho wishtsl to refrain from talking of
the Intlnvito affairs of herself and hor hus
band, and arguments of Iv Hutchlns's
I iwyrrs, Myor Cohen nnd Frank J, Hogau
of Washington, Judge Hand ruled that
Mrs. Hutchlns must make replies to tho
questions before Commissioner Houghton
this morning or bo Judged In contempt of
court. In that case Mrs. Hutchlns's
lawyer, Julius tllttlnz. will appeal at once
from the court's 1I1 clslon.
The matters of which Mrs. Htitehlru
refused to give Information wete In sub
stanro tho samo as those upon which
she was examined In 1911, when she made
an effort to have her husband's affairs
put Into the hands of a commission.
She wished then also to have her monthly
allowance fixed at $1,000 by a trustee
Mr. Hutchlns had hlmelf put In charge
of his estate raised to $l,,r.0O.
By Mr. Hutchlns's will Mrs. Hutchlns,
his second wife, who now lives at the
Hotel Vanderbllt, received $1,500,000. If
I.ee Hutchlns's effort to break his father's
will should bo successful, this amount
may be greatly reduced.
Lee Hutchlns alleges that his father,
who died In April, 1912, was of unsound
mind and under the Influence of Walter
Stilson Hutchlns, nn older son, who got
as his share of the nta'c about $1,500.
