asked in the same application against the
" American- Wire & Steel company dc
stroylng any more of the papers In Its
Hl poFaessIon benrlnp upon thc suit. This lat-
HH ' tor Injunction was granted because it
had been proved that the steel and wire

H; Baa ekes Makes Admission,

Hp Steel Wire company, assumed full rc-
HB sponslblllty today for the destruction of
Hflj . the documentary evidence In thc posses-
IfjSj lon of that company which was tcsti-
HH -fied to the previous day by H. A. Whit-
HH Bnackes was thc principal witness put
HH ion the stand by thc government In the
.UIH ? fourth day of the hearing. He claimed
JlfH that within u month or two after thc
HH '-wire pool collapsed as a result of the
Hfl ' withdrawal from It of thc American
HB Steel & Wlro company, he had given an
H order for thc Immediate destruction of
HB 'all the correspondence and other papers
HH i bearing upon the operations of the pool
HH; because he thought there was no longer
any use to encumber his of lice files with
HH . the great mass of correspondence about
HH the transactions of thc pool. lie swore
HH that until thc government started its ln-
HH vcstlgallon which resultod In the present

HjH his order of two years heforo had been

HH burned, but that he had always under-
HH stood that order had been given to
HH WTnltney by George A. Cragln, the eom-
HH pany's assistant general sales agent. He
HH further asserted that when Whitney of-
II fercd his resignation after testifying be
HH foro the grand Jury' that the order to
HAfj hurn the papers had been $vcn to him
HH by Baackes, ho urged Whitney to remain
with the company.
At the morning session of the hearing
Cragln testified to' the same effect.
jH "Why was thc wire pool formed?" was
H asked of Baackos, by "Henry Colton, who
is assisting Judgo Dickinson.
"To make more money." replied
H "Did you make' more money bv raising

HiH were made.
MM How the Pool Worked.
HH 'If a member of the pool had sold over
HH 100 per cent of his allotment," said thc
HjH witness, "he was notified to curtail his

LOS A NG BLISS. Cal.. May 0. In a
speech here tonlcht before tho
Southern California Taft associa
tion, Secretary of SLate Knox vig
orously Interjected himself Into the
California presidential primary campaign.
This was Mr. Knox's first utterance of
a political nature ulncc his return from
Central America. Me took up thc cudgels
strongly for President Taft, defending
him from the criticisms of Colonel Roose
velt, whom he scathingly attacked as a
man "prompted by whims," of "Imperial
ambitions, vanities and mysterious an
tipathies," and as one "who would break
tho rule of his party and his country and
lils own solemn word to gain thc seat
of his friend,"
The "new nationalism" of CoJonel
Roosevelt, was termed by Secretary Knox
"as violent an assault upon the autonomy
of the states as the new nationalism of
1S61 was upon thc Integrity of thc union."
In refutation of Colonel Roosevelt's
claim that Mr. Taft was unfit for re-election
to the presidency, Mr. Knox cited
the colonel's language In 1008 In com
mending Taft as "thc true friend or re
form, thc true foe of abuses."
Replies to Charge.
Referring to Colonel Roosevelt's charge
that the president was seeking thc sup
port of "bosses." Mr. Knox said:
"President Tafl can reply that Mr.
Rooscvetl sought anrl had their Fupport
in his campaign in 100-1, and that In'many
places now his interests are in thc hands
of rejected and disaffected political
bosses whoso .political offenses smell to
Mr. Knox discussed at length the rec
ord of thc Republican party, and reviewed
exhaustively thc achievements of Presi
dent Taft's administration.
Of reciprocity between Canada and the
United Suites, he said that "efforts to
restrain, hamper and Interfere with Its
realization will be as futile and as un
profitable as were the early ruinous
trade wars between the states."
"This," said Mr. Knox, "is perhaps
one of the most extraordinary ante-con-vcntlon
campaigns within the history of
our party. The effort, so far, has been
to confuse the situation by dragging in
issues with which the states alone are
Mr. Knox then proceeded to summarize
and comp'are the claims to reform
achievements of Colonel Ropsovelt and
President Taft, asserting that the presi
dent's accomplishments far outweigh
those of his predecessor.
"If Mr. R6osovolt,-' he said, "claims
that President Taft Is seeking or has
the support of the men who for years
have Htood for leadership In thc Repub
lican party and guided Its columns to
victory. President Taft can reply that
Mr. RooEevelt sought and had their sup
port In his campaign In 1004. and that
In many places now his Interests are
In the hands of rejected and disaffected
political bosses whose political offenses
smell to high heaven,
"If Mr. Roosevelt claims that he Is
not In favor of reciprocity with "Canada.
Presldont Taft can point to the fact that,
before entering Into that agreement, he
consulted Mr. Roosevelt and obtained
his hearty and unqualified approval of
Quotes the Colonel.
Mr. Knox here quoted a eulogy of Mr.
Taft by Colonel Roosevelt in 100S as an
answer to the colonel's assertion that
President Taft Is unlit to succeed hlm
belf. Ho also cited passages of praise
of Mr. Ta,ft in Mr. Roosevelt's speech '
as temporary chairman of the Saratoga
convention In 1010.
"Mr. "Roosevelt," the speaker contin
ued, "has given no coherent reason for
changing his just appraisement of Mr.
Taft's charcter and qualifications,
"If Mr. Roosevelt claims that President
Taft's actions have been Inconsistent
with lifts declarations In 100S, President
Taft can point, among other examples,
to thc following declarations by Mr.
"November S. 1004 'Under no circum
stances, will I ho a candidate for or ac
cept another nomination."
"December 11, 1007 'I have not
changed and shall not change that deci
sion thus announced.'
"February (,, 15J1-J T will accept the
nomination for president if It is, tendered
to me.' "
The most conspicuous point of dlffcr-
nce between Taft and Roosovolt, Mr.
Kjiox asserted, centered In the "new na-
tlonallatn" proponed by Colonel Roooc
j "This Involves," he said. "a. nuw con-j
ceptlon by Mr. Roosevelt of the cohesive
princlploo by which the otatos are bound
together to constitute the "United States

was that some states clalmd the right

scIvob from tho union, That Jssuo was
decided bv the most tragic war of mod
ern times a war that carried grief into
a million American homes.

whose full voice Is never heard except In

Mr. Knox made an earnest plea that
Mr. Taft be given a second torm.
"TIiIk has bocn," he said, "the Repub
lican ru'o. without exception, except tho
one (President Hayes) . which so forcibly
emphasizes tho rule, and unless the Re

SACRAMENTO, Cal.. May 9. Thc

to the Republican national convention will
not be pledged If they are elected. So
far as their signatures attest they are
plmplv running, free to Join in any com
bination for any candidate nominated on
tho floor of the convention.
It was discovered In thc flies of tho sec
retary of state that, whereas the Roose
velt, La Follcttc, Clark and Wilson can
didates have all signed the affidavits re
quired by law declaring their personal
preference for president and their willing
ness to support "that candidate for presi
dent of tlio United States who shall have
received the highest number of votes
throughout tho entire state" (by the vot
ers of their party), the forms supplied
by the Taft California committee omit
aiiy statement of preference or any pledge
Under the law this failure Is not suffi
cient ground for tho secretary of slate
to refuse the nomination papers.
Tho twenty-six candidates for dele
gates In the Taft column aro presumably
"Taft delegates." as they were all named
bv the California Taft campaign com
mittee, headed by Charles Mifflin Ham
