leged to have been associated with Judge
Archbald In a number of deals for culm

President Truesdell. Vice President
Loomls, and General Counsel Jenny, of
the Lackawanna, were among those who
appeared yesterday. James Archbald.
Jr., engineer of the Stephen Glrard es
tate, of Philadelphia, and George E.
Klrkpatrick, superintendent of the es
tate, also testified. Arcbbald is a
nephew of the Judge. The testimony
bearing on the Glrard estate excited In
terest among the committee. It was
brought out that Judge Archbald at
tempted to obtain leases on culm coal
piles near Shenandoah, Pa., in which the
Lehigh Valley Railroad was Interested.
Archbald's nephew and Mr. Klrkpatrick
told the committee that the Judge tried
to lease last December culm coal piles
near Shenandoah, Pa., from the Glrard
estate, and that be had told them he
had obtained the consent of the Lehigh
Valley Railroad officials, who had
" "blanket" leases of the Glrard coal
"I considered it Improper for a Judge of
the Commerce Court to be engaged with
the railroad officials to secure conces
sions which might affect their cases
before him." said Mr. Klrkpatrick. Judge
Archbald failed to lease the culm piles,
Klrkpatrick added, because such a lease
might prevent renewal of the principal
leases with the railroad. James Arch
bald said his uncle first applied to him
for the lease and that he was referred
to Klrkpatrick. He said Judge Arch
bald, with J. F. Bell, a Scranton law
yer, and V. L. Peterson and Thomas
H. Jones, coal operators, signed a for
mal application to lease the lands.
Vice President Loomls i Emitted that
Judge Archbald had writ i him and
visited him In relation to oal property
that be sought to lease. V. P. Boland,
author of the charges against Judge
Archbald, prompted members of the com
mittee In their examination of the rail
road officials. Boland holds Loomls re
sponsible for the difficulties of the Mar
lon Coal Company, and characterized
Loomls as "his persecutor."
President Truesdell said he personally

despite the exposures of the past year,
culminating in the uncovering of "the

city haven't the faintest Idea how deep
these roots go.
They are going to find out. however.

Born Leaves for West.
Burns left for the West this afternoon
after Councilman Harry Dougherty, the
only one of the five councllmen accused
of accepting a bribe of SoOO each to vote
for the "boardwalk" ordinance, who re
fused to admit his guilt, had been held
for the grand Jury In ROOD bail Before
leaving the city. Burns, In an interview,
named three other members of the city
council In connection with the bribery
charges. He said that Councilman Sam

fessed, will testify that b paid money
to each of the three In the "boardwalk"
case. Those who have confessed are
Councilman Phoebus, Gustav Kessfer,
James .W. Lane, and William Malta.
Dougherty was stubborn, so he was ar

was the star witness, and at which one
of the operatives told the story of the
famous dictagraph, was Intensely dra
matic. Dougherty was not placed on the stand.
He listened In silence to the evidence
against him. Three councllmen whose
confessions Burns holds were witnesses
against their colleague. They merely told
of their presence at the Burns interview
with Dougherty, when the latter declined
to admit his guilt. Phoebus told of his
advice to Dougherty to "do as the rest
ot us have done." The most direct evi
dence against Dougherty was that given
by F. S. Smiley, the Burns operative, who
turned up the Ohio legislative scandal.
