principal that we may have advanced,
any nimi received by you in payment
for the paper.
Other .documents presented by Mr.
ssaer show that the payments by
rr.,2SensPan to -Mr. Brisbane were
made ateuh the Growing Circula
tion Corporation. The names of the
officers of thlsvcorporatlon are peo
ple immediately identified with Mr.
Brisbane, matlnc clear that it is on
in which he' has exclusive Interest.
Mr. Palmer includes with his docu
ments -letters from Alexander Konta
to Capt.Hans Tauscher. a notorious
agent of German propaganda In the
United: 'States, and to Dr. Bernard
Dernberjr, at one time Germany's
chteX'propacanda agent, dealing with
the prospects of buying some New
York newspaper. Nothing In these
letters has any relation to or makes
any mention of The Washington'
Times or Mr. Brisbane. Mr. Palmer's
purpose' in including them Is evi
dently because Konta expressed the
Individual opinion that the brewers
might be interested In helping to
support- a newspaper which would
follow their policies with regard to
the liquor question.
A. statement by Mr. Felgenspan,
dated July 30, 1818. in explanation of
the loan to Mr. Brisbane, and in addi
tlo;vt$the letter quoted above. Is as
follows: ' ., mi
SSuring the month of June, 1917, to
thp' best of my recollection, the mat
terj of The Washington Times became
of nutual interest to Mr. Arthur Brls-
oane and a number of brewers. II r.
Brisbane, as I have been Informed by
him, had an option to purchase The
Washington Times from Mr. Frank A.
Munsey for a sum which I recall as
being $500,000. The terms of this sale.
as-sl recall them, were that $250,000
was to be paid dawn, the" balance to
ba?pald In Installments of $50,000
each, every six months.
"In order to bring about the pUi
ehise of The Washington Times, I at
various times advanced Mjv Brisbane
fund through the Growing Circula
tion Corporation, a corporation which
i .peueve Is either owned or con
trolled by Mr. Brisbane. The afore
said funds, were advanced on the
dales and In the. araAilhtj an herein
afier specified 'and in, the following
t first drew a check or checks on
the account at the Federal Trust
Company which ,slood,Jn my name as
trustee, such- check or checks" (rein?
payable to the order- of the Federal
Trust Company, and the Federal

deliver to -me a treasurer's .check of
the Federal Trust Company payable

At a dinner lately, being seated be

rec-ardlnir the curchase of a news
paper, and after listening attentively
to his views, I promised .at nis re
quest to write him a letter outlining
the newspaper situation. ,1 gave a
good deal of thought to writing this
letter, which was absolutely confi

Now, while I hesitate to put you ts

The expense of the war news serv

Crease of advertlslnc owing tj busi

and this state of affairs continues.
that rnost of the daily papers In New.

nual loss which has had to be met
by constant loans In Wall Street;
which, as a rule, is content to take
Its profits indirectly In abstention
from hostility to its doings. If not in
positive support of them.
In the field "of the evening news

the morning papers publishing also
evening editions look to the latter to
cover their losses and show a profit.
Thus It is "the "Evening Journal" that
earns much money, whereas the "New
York American" is run at a loss. The
Morning "World" comes out about
even, according to common report, but
the "Evening World" prospers. The
morning "Sun" has been a heavy
loser for many years; under Its new
management it has spent money so
recklessly that it is seriously em
barrassed, but the "Evening Sun" Is
an increasingly sound business prop
osition. Other Papers.
What Is true of the morning papers
that issue no evening editions Is also
true of the Independent evening

the most sensible schemes then pro

I have been unable to find out. Th

has the controlling interest safely in
his hands. Whether the paper will be
able to retain the circulation which
is has regained since the beginning nf -the

might be well to bear the Staats

of the purchnye price, and an ad

to the self-supporting stage.
