At 1:30 o'clock Assistant Circuit Attorney
Maroney informed Roberts that he would
not be needed as a witness and wouift be
telephoned for it wanted.
When Judge Seddon arrived in the witness-rooms
Roberts was there. They
nodded their recognition.
Judge Seddon took a, seat In a room
across the hall from the one where Rob
Roberts was told that Judge Seddon had
repudiated an interview In a morning pa
per on Sunday which purported to quote
Roberts Immediately became very much
excited. Jumping from his chair he went
to the room where Judge Seddon sat and
raising his hand above his head de
manded: "Do you repudiate the Interview from
you I gave to this paper?"
Judge Seddon remained seated and calm
ly replied that he did not care to say
anything about the matter.
Roberts's excitement by this time was
increasing. Twice again he repeated the
question, and each time he was met with
the same calm answer:
"I have nothing further to say."
"Then I am done with you. I'll go be
fore the Grand Jury and tell all I
Judge Seddon arose from his chair and
went downstairs to the first floor of the
Four Courts building. He returned In a
few minutes In company with Attorney
Thomas MulvilhiU. Detective James
Tracy followed them.
Chief Kiely. Chief Desmond and Assist
ant Chief Keeley declared that neither of
them sent Detective Tracy upstairs. The
detective, when asked why he was there,
stated that be "was looking out for
trouble." Asked who sent him he said:
"You had better ask Chief Keeley about
Two hours later, when an afternoon pa
per purporting to give the facts of the In
terview between Judge Seddon and Rob
erts arrived. Roberts again grew angry
He declared that he did not use the
words "You have .forsaken me," with
which he had been quoted by the paper.
"I never said such a thing." angrily de
clared Roberts. "I had no reason to say
ft. I never needed Judge Seddon In this
matter. Therefore, he could not have for
saken me. Judge Seddon needs me. If
he repudiates my interview lie's a d.
Roberts repeated this statement several
times and then declared: "I have al
ways been Judge Seddon's friend and hive
tried to shield him In every way."
A reporter then offered to confront
Judge Seddon in another room to prove
that Roberts had used the words: "You
have forsaken me."
Roberts Jumped at the suggestion, and
despite Deputy Sheriff Bernard DIckman's
efforts to prevent it. ..pushed into the
room where Judge Seddon sat.
"Did I say that?" he asked, pointing to
the paragraph In question.
"I do not care to be bothered by you,
Mr. Roberts," calmly replied Judge Sed
don. never arising from his chair.
Detective James Tracy, who bad re
mained near Judge Seddon. stepped closer.
ROBERTS FROM nnoM.
Deputy Sheriff DIckmann stood between
the two men. "If Judge Seddon does not
wish to be bothered." said the deputy to
Roberts, "you will have to get out of this
room and let him alone."
With that DIckmann pushed Roberts
from the room.
Five minutes previous Judge Seddon and
Roberts were alone in the witness-room
and were In a heated argument. Roberts

tective Tracy and Deputy Sheriff DIck
Judge Seddon was the Grand Jury's first
witness. After being In the Grand Jury
room nn hour he came out and sat In the
witness-room, expecting to be called again.
Immediately following Ids second tilt with
noberts he left the Four Courts.
In his published statements Roberts has
been reported as sayliur that Judge Sed
don knew nothing of Blair's alleged Ir
regularities until he told" him. Roberts
declared that he bad given to Judge Sed
don "the whole story" and advised him to
get out of the firm.
Judge Seddon. over his Own signature
yesterday said: "I did have a conversa
tion with him (mcanlns Roberts) In which
he did most of the talking and I said very
little, but I did say to him that certain
facts which he had communicated to me
last summer and which I had at the time
denounced as false In very strong lan
guage, had been verified byme."
This statement on Judge Seddon's part
Is believed to have caused his summons
before the Grand Jury. As Judge Seddon 1
has thus far declined to discus, the case
Every piece of furniture in "Alrdrle" Is

From officials of the World's Fair It has
been learned that Mr. Blair's Income from
the Exposition Company was not so great
as might lie supposed. Mr. Blair icccived
a salary of J1S.O0O a year, but out of this.
It Is said, he paid the entire expense cf the
legal department of the World's Fair,
with the exception of one attorney, who
! stationed permanently nt the Adminis
tration building, and who attends to the
records of all the legal transactions of
During his tenure of office Mr. Blair
has frequently engaged the services of lIs
former law trartn'-r. Judge Jsznrs A. fed
don, but Judge Sneddon's remune-ntion
was deducted from Mr. Blair's allowance.
Tlie statement that Mrs. Blair receives a
salary of J1,ai a year as chairman of the
Board of Lady Managers Is erroneous.
There has never b-en an appropriation for
a salary for Mrs. Blair, but the World's
Fair Company has allow cd her traveling
expenses as well is actual expenses In
curred In attending meetliu:s of the lioard.
A coincidence In regard to the charges
recently made against Mr. Blair Is in the
fact that the Globe-Democrat, which was
the Orst paper to print the statements of
J. T. Roberts. Mr. Blair's accuter before
the Grand Jary. was formerly edited by
Frank P. Blair, father of James L. Blair.

of the paper's principal stockholders.

Broker James Campbell followed Judge
Seddon into the witness-room. It was
while Roberts was angrily denying the
afternoon paper's statement In the hall
way that Campbell emerged from the
Grand Jury room, glanced at Roberts, and
then hurried away.
Roberts, In his lengthy statement, said
that he had told Campbell of his allegel
discoveries concerning Mr. Blair. He sild

FAVORED A COMMITTEE.
Roberts also declared that Campbell had
suggested the appointment of a committee
of lawyers to Investigate Blair's affairs,
but after be had visited New York and
talked with Evans R. Dick, who declined
to discuss Blair's affairs, Campbell re
turned and told him that he had decided
to let the matter drop. It was along thb
line that Mr. Campbell was questioned
In the Grand Jury room, and from a re
liable source last night It was learned
that neither Campbell nor Judge Seddon
had added much to the Information al

ors and Assistant Circuit Attorney Andrew
R. C Kann. bookkeeper for the firm of
Seddoa & Blair, and still employed In their
offices In the Missouri Trust building, was
next called. Mr, Kann. was before the
Grand Jury hall an hour. Ho declined to
speak of the situation before entering the
Grand Jury room. He seemed nervous.
Roberts talked to 1dm a few minutes.
The interview seemed unpleasant to liim
and he was heard to say:
"You know I was only employed In the
office and I do not era to talk about this

Kann was asked about these reports by
the Grand Jury, it Is said. That he told
all he knew is not doubted. He was
employed In Mr. Blair's office fifteen years.
He Is named as a trustee In the XX.VO
deed of trust on Mr. Blair's home, which
was recently filed.
The Grand Jury may desire to Invesll
gate these books and a subpoena duces
tecum to have them brought to the Four
Courts Is not regarded as unlikely.
Thomas P. Reilly, now In the employ of
a trust company, formerly Mr. Blair's
stenographer, and B. R. Dennlson. a news
paper writer, were the last witnesses.
Rclllv was questioned about affairs In
Mr. Blair's office of which he was sup
posed to have knowledge.
Dennlson recently Interviewed Mr. Blair,
and before entering the Grand Jury room
stated that Mr. Blair had emphatically
denied the reports about him. Dennlson
al-M Interviewed other men who ha-e been
summoned as Grand Jury witnesses. It
took him not more than ten minutes to
give his testimony.
The Grand Jury's first action upon con
vening at 2 o'clock was to make a -partial
report of indictments found in routine
cases. When the Grand Jurors returned
to their room they went Into executive
session. Assistant Circuit Attorney Ma
roney was not In the room and Stenog

Juries to. vote on Indictments after re

In this Instance It has not been made
known what the executive session was
It Is stated, however, that the BUIr case
was under discussion, but It is known
that no vote was taken. The executive
session lasted halt an hour.
The Grand Jury will reconvene at 2
o'clock thfe afternoon. When adjournment
was taken last Friday. James T. Roberts.
accuser of Mr. Blair, was Instructed to
return yesttrday, as It was understood
that, although he spent five hours and
thirty minutes In the witness chair, he
had not completed his testimony.
Whether Roberts will be called to the
Four Courts again to-day has not been
decided. The names of prospective wit
nesses are being kept closely guarded, awl
those who will ttstify this afternoon are
not known. It Is believed that the Grand
Jury desires to hear other witnesses be

Four Courts as to the prospect of wit

delphia to testify before the Grand Jury
While Assistant Circuit Attorney Maroney
would neither affirm or deny the report
that he had requested the attendance of
such witnesses, it Is believed that he docs
not expect them.

the surplus of tbe subsistence stores.
Officially, they have been on a long
