CANDIDACY
ROBERTS TALKS
TO GRAND J
Witness in Blair Case Five and
One Half Hours Telling
His Story.
TO APPEAR AGAIN MONDAY.
Is Said to nave Important Pap
ers in His Possession Finn of
Philadelphia Hankers Mny
I!e Asked to Test if v.
Five ami on-lialf hours were spent In
the Grand Jury room yesterday by James
T. Roberts, the moot important of the
witnesses In the Rlnlr Investigation, and In
tlmt time. It is Mid, but few questions
were asked hlra.
Although ho wa, in the Grand" Jury
room from 1030 o'clock In the morning
until 4 In the afternoon. Mr. Roberts has
been Instructed to appear again before
the Grand Jury Monday afternoon at 2
o'clock.
Mr. Roberts talked continuously while
In the presence of the Grand Jurors and
his testimony. It Is declared, made an In
teresting story for the ears of the Jury
men. Only a few times did Assistant
Circuit Attorney Maroney Interrupt the
witness to ask a question.
Other witnesses have thus far remained
In the presence of the Grand Jury "01
more than half an hour.
TOLD LONG STORY.
When Mr. Roberts first visited the Cir
cuit Attorney's ofQce and conferred with
Assistant Circuit Attorney Maroney
about the Blalt case It Is said that ha
talked for seven hours. It Is not Improb
able that Roberta will appear before the
Grand Jury two or more hours Monday.
His story, in one respects, has not been
fully told.
Roberts atiared In the Grand Jury
witness-room yesterday morning prompt
ly at Id o'clock, but the making of a par
tial report b the Jurors delayed the In
quiry bait an hour. After five hours and
thirty minutes In the witness chair, his
face, when he came out showed that he
had been under a great strain.
As an assistant attorney and sten
ographer. Mr. Roberts was employed In
the law office of James L. Blair prior to
lfe. After he had quit Mr. Blair's em
ploy his eon was engaged In the office.
Mr. Roberts had access to tho olficcs of
Mr. Blair, ami much of the knowledge
which he divulged to the Grand Jury yes
terday was obtained while In this rela
tion. BANKERS MAY TESTIFY.
In his testimony Roberts Is sold to hae
touched upon two matters of Importance.
One of these cases Is said to refer to a
linn of Philadelphia, financiers, for whom
Mr. Blair at one time was the St Louis
representative.
As a result or Roberts'? testimony these
bankers may be asked to come to St
Louis to testify before the Grand Jury.
The Circuit Attorney has no power nt his
command under the statutes to compel a
person to come from Philadelphia to tes
tify before the Grand Jury, but he may
find some of the Interested parties there
willlnir to make the trip. Roberts, it Is
said, has visited this firm In Philadelphia.
Assistant Circuit Attorney Maroney has
been informed that rour men have knowl
edge or Important matters that are abso
lutely necessary to a thorough Grand
Jurr Investigation. Of these Roberts Is
one. and he Is believed to have mentioned
the names of Hie three others in his
lengthy "recital" before the Grand Jury
estcrday afternoon.
James Campbell, the broker, was sum
moned to appear berore the Grand Jury
yesterday morning. He arrived nt the
Four Courts shortly 1-eIore noon. He
rapped on the door leading to the Inquisi
torial chamber. Assistant Circuit Attor
ney Maroney responded.
Roberts, at that time, had Just got well
started on his story. It was Impossible
to Interrupt him at tills Important stage
of his testimony, to Mr. Campbell was
asktsl by Mr. Maroney to wait Nearly
an hour later the Assistant Circuit Attor
ney told Mr. Campbell that It would be
some time heforo Mr. Roberts would com
plete his testimony and requested Mr.
Campbell to return to the Four Courts at
2 o'clock Monday afternoon.
P. w. Dennlson, a newspaper -writer,
also was kep waiting two hours before
he was told that he would not be needed.
and requested to return to the Grand
Jury room Monday. Information given to
Dennlson Is said to be wanted from him
by the Grand Jury.
The Grand Jury did not adjourn for
lunch at 1 o'clock as usuaL The lunch
hour was spent In listening to Roberts. He
lost no time. It Is said, while before the
Jury, and told his story without hesita
tion. PAPERS IN THE CASE.
Roberts, according to Information ob
tainable at the Four Courts, claims to
have, or know where they are, certain
documents which are corroborative of
many or his statements. Whether these
are to be examined by the Grand Jury
has not been divulged.
"You may say that this Investigation Is
to be thorough." declared Assistant Cir
cuit Attorney Maroney. when asked about
this matter. From this it appears that the
Grand Jury may wish to see anything
that has any connection with the investi
gation that Is of material Importance.
Whether witnesses will come from
Philadelphia. Mr. Maroney would not
say. "Schoolboys know." he said, "teat
we have no power to bring witnesses from
another State to St Louis to testlry be
rore the Grand Jury, even ir such wit
nesses were only across the river, in East
St. Louis. But It Is not an uncommon
tWrg for wltnssses to come from othr
States when asked to do so. That Is all I
wish to say on tliat point"
Of Broker Campbell's connection with
the case, nothing has been divulged at the
Four Courts. If street reports are to be
credited the millionaire nnancler has been
a stanch friers! of Mr. Blair In more ways
than one. and It Is said these reports are
one of the causes of Mr. Campbell's sum
mons before the Grand Jury.
How much :or.ger the Inquiry will last
cannot be predicted. All of next week
may be consumed In the Investigation,
and It may take ot more than two days
belore the matter will be settled.
CAUSE OF INQUIRY.
It Is more probable, however, that the
Grand Jury may drop the Inquiry ror sev
eral days after Monday or Tuesday and,
after taking up routine cases, refer again
to the Blair Investigation. If witnesses
are to be brought from other States, this,
it Is belleed. will be the procedure.
Several o' the grand Jurors are said to
be personal friends of Mr. Blair. Circuit
Attorney Folk and Assistant Circuit At
torney Manner also have long been his
close personal friends.
"This friendahto will have no effect on

TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN: Over nine sear, ago I was taken down with lung fever In Portland. Ore.
My doctors, on It-cnlng that threo aunts and my mother had died of consumption lefore they were 3 years or

years nnd was gradually dying and wanted no more drugging of my poor stomach. In 3) days I went bnck to the

the Inquiry " said a man who Is In a po
sition to know, yesterday afternoon. "It
may be distasteful for some of the Jurops
to act upon this case, but they can be d?
pended upon to do their full duty.
"Mr. Blair was among the first if not
the first person who went to the assist
ance of Circuit Attorney Folk when the
boodle Inquiries began. As a. result of
Mr. Blair's efforts a fund amounting to
JliOW was raised to assist the Circuit At
torney In the prosecutions.
"This work on Mr. Blair's part no doubt
entered the boodlers. It has been said
that some ot the boodle gang may be re
sponsible ror the reports connecting Mr.
Blair's name with matters now under
consideration, but of this there Is no
proof, and it is doubtful If there Is any
truth to such reports."

tradition to tho extent that It may be done
without discourtesy to Mexico.
It Is believed that Mexico Is disposed to
return Kratz, from the fact that he was
arrested as soon a Ambassador Clayton
presented the matter and without waiting
for the arrival of requisition papers from
Washington. It Is clear, therefore, that
Mexico Is showing a responsive disposi
tion, and It is believed will grant the
requisition on the ground ot International
comity. In fact, it Is the opinion ot the
officials that the Mexican Government will
make a sharp contest tn secure extradi
tion In case Kratz apfeals to the courts
to prevent It
KRATZ PAPERS RETURNED
BECAUSE OFFICIAL SEAL
WAS ON THE WRONG SIDE.
Chief of Detectives William Desmond
and Sheriff Joseph Dickmann may go to
Mexico to bring Charles Kratz to St
Louis. It Is understood that the Sheriff
desires to make the trip, and Circuit At
torney Folk sold last night that he would
extend the courtesy to Chief Desmond.
In the event of Chief Desmond's re
fusal to go thit time, he having made the
trip before. It Is believed that he will
select his assistant. John J. Keely. as the
Police Department's representative. The
appointment of Keely will be satisfactory
to Circuit Attorney Folk.

Ls almost ccrtsln to be tho other man to
go. If Sheriff Dickmann does not insist
upon making the trip himself. However.
Circuit Attorney Folk will not interfere
If the Sheriff should select some other
deputy who Is known to be reliable.
Circuit Attorney Folk departed last
night for St Joseph ami will no; return i
until to-morrow. He will then decMe tip
on tho messengers who will make the trip.
EXAMINES EXTRADITION
PAPERS MINUTELY.
A lslt to Washington to have the
requisition papers signed by the State De
partment Is necessary. The present plan
Is to send the papers to Washington, the
messenger starting Monday and then
bringing them back to St Louis. Whether
the men who will go after Kratz will also
take the papers to Washington has not
been decided.
It le not necessary that they should do
so. but Mr. Folk beHeves that It might
be well for them to do so. In order that
they may receive special instructions at
Washington.
Circuit Attorney Folk s paying close at
tention to the requisition papers, and
when they are rent they will have been
prepared with tho greatest care, to avoid
any mistake that might delay the return
of Kratz.
Mr. Folk discovered Thursday that In
stamping the Governor's seal on two of
.be documents at Jefferson City last week
It had oeen put on the lower right-hand
corner.
He has found that the Mexican Govern
ment ls particular as to the placing of
seals, and that this one should have been
-tamped In the lower left-hand corner of
the document To have this change made
he sent Detective Richard McDonnell, one
or the most-trusted employes or his office,
to Jefferson City Thursday night McDon
nell returned last night
McDonnell has been mentioned as the
messenger who will take the papers to
Washington. He has the full confidence"
of Mr. Folk and can be depended upon to
carry out Instructions. It has also been
stated that he may go to Mexico, but his
duties In the Circuit Attorney's office, es
pecially when Important matters are un
der Investigation by the Grand Jury, may
prevent him bcln selected as one of the
messengers.
Circuit Attorney Folk received a tele
gram from the State Department yester
day morning In which his attention was
called to the Mexican law of 1S97. which
applied to the Kratx case.' and suggesting
that hs give It careful attention. He had

already attended to this detail, which had
been discussed while he was In Washing
ton, and ha feels that the papers will be
In perfect shape when the State Depart
ment's seals are on them.
NO INFORMATION
ABOUT WA1NWRIGHT.
As he has thirty days In which to ex
tradite Kratz. the Mexican Government
agreeing to hold the fugitive that long.
Circuit Attorney Folk has had no Incli
nation to hurry matters, preferring to act
with care.
He has no doubt of the success of the
efforts to bring Kratz back. When. Chief
Desmond visited Mexico in April, lSOi to
bring Kratz back, be was without the
backing of the United States Government
Now all the power of the President and
the State Department Is behind Circuit
Attorney Folk, and he does not fear the
result.
Asked yestrdny afternoon If he had re
ceived any Information that E11I3 Waln
wright. also wanted on a charge of bri
bery. Is coming back to St Louis from
France or his own volition, Mr. Folk
said:
"All I know of that Is what I have read
In tho newspapers."
To bring Walnwricht and Daniel F. Kel-
ley to St Louis for trial, however, will
le Mr. Folk's next .task after the Kratz
case Ls settled, and ho will she It the
closest attention.
FEELS SURE
OF SUCCESS.
It Is believed that Mr. Folk feels as
sured or the support of President Roose
velt In any effort he may mako looking
toward the return of these fugitives.
Treaties with England for the extradi
tion of Kelley from Canada and with
France for Walnwrtght's return from
Paris, will be necessary before Circuit
Attorney Folk will be able to take any
steps other than to urge his friends In
Congress to bring about the desired re
sult. As President Roosevelt Is understood to
desire such treaties there ls little doubt
that matters) will be carried to an end
satisfactory to Circuit Attorney Folk.
But with the most prompt action It ls
hardly cxpt-cted that arrangements' for the
extradition of these men can be completed
within several months. Whatever treaties
are made will have to be made retroactive
In order that they may be applied to the
Walnwright and Kelley cases. This, it is
believed, will bo the most difficult of the
diplomatic negotiations between the coun
tries. In dealing with France and England, It
ls believed, that far more difficulty will be
encountered than In the negotiations with
Mexico.
