MAY BE INDICTED
?He Is Said to Be Implicated in
TO DISCREDIT STRIKERS
Suspect Almost as Prominent in
Woolen World as
\\ II.1.1 t M 31. W <><?!>.
B"M'.n. Mast), September 1 ?The pos?
sible indictment by the grand Jury of
nnother official almost as prominent In
the world "f woolen manufacturers ns
>??? lent William M. Wood, of the
Amerli an Wool-n Company, was the
rurnor circulated to-day.
President Wood, whq Is at present
out oh ?5,000 ball. Is Indicted on a
charge of having plotted with others
to have dynamite planted In Lawrence
at the time ..f the great textile work?
ers' strike, when rioting was at its
height. In ot'del t'> 4s t discredit upon
la Poor Shape.
Tuesday morning the head of per?
haps the largest dye agency in this
country, a man rated as a millionaire,
who Is nt present ill with nervous col?
lapse, wUl surrender himself m police
headquarters on a secret Indictment,
warrant charging him with the same,
offense alleged against the American
Wooleti Company president.
Already the Lawrence people in
whose place? of business dynamite was
jecovered by the police* on "anony?
mous, tips" are planhing civil suits for
damages In amounts up tn the thous?
ands If the courts find Wool guilty.
Wood's Life Story.
.The st^ry of the life of William
Wood, head of the American Woolen
Company, at the age of ilfty-one,
reads almost like a fairy tale. It ls(
the btory of a boy born In poverty, the
. ison of a Port ugliest fat h er Who had
i- insumptlon but no money, and who
died before his eldest son had reached
There Is considerable doubt what the
father's name was Some say It was
Silva; others trink It was Ji-cmtho.
But upon coming to America he took
the name of Wood. Although a poor
man and without health, he deter?
mined to do the best he c,,U!d for his
ton. and the boy's schooling began
??when he was only four years old.
When s.ttil a nuro boy William at
tra ti i the attention of Samuel O.
i i r e, agent for a steamboat company,
who gave him a poMllon as messenger
. It. ..is office.
For three years he worked In the
oflb e, doing clerical work and aa
n.-tlng In the routine work of the su?
perintendent. No detail escaped his
attention, and when he expressed the
. desire to learn the technical end of
the industry, Mr. Pierce transferred
hint to the Inside of the mill, whero
. for three more years ho worked. '
Six years In the mill gave him a
. reputation for ability that led J. A.
Beauvals to offer htm u position tn
his newly formed banking house. Mr.
Beauvals was regarded a? a most
astute financier and young Wood re?
ceived n training that hardly could bo
equaled in that day.
Mr. Wood, while tn the brokerage
\ business, did not give up his hope of
?nmt day going back to the mills,
[ills benefactor, Mr. Pierce, had taught
him enough to prove to him the op
} portunltlos that awaited a young man
jot his energy and ability in tire mill
[hush The opportune rime .came
'w! the reorganization of several
I .. all Blver mills following heavy
money losses. 1
When men were forming r.ombl
?rations of manufacturiea of all kinds
I It occurred to Mr. Whitman, of the
Arlington mill that this would be a
good thing to do In the woolen indus?
try. He began It and Incidentally
took in Mr. Wood and his Washing?
ton mill?only to nnd later on that
Mr. Wood was the head and centre,
and his Arlington mill was loft outside
From that time on hi? wonderful
business life is well known It was
?crowned When he organized the great
American Woolen company and was
made its active head. He stands alone
'as the foremost textile mill man in
this section of the country.

that "the chairman of the commlttei

"Home questions have been asked

wearily, "and 1 have answered them
5,000,000 times. If I've skipped uny
I am uot aware of It,"
The ah- gatton coming from Demo

Roosevelt managers accepted flh.aan

"I no.Ver knew of .my money con- i

The Colonel became Jocular when
' asked about a statement of James
Bovin that the; Spanish-American War
could have been averted If Roose?
velt as Assistant Secretary of the Navy
had not urged President McKinley on.
"Now. I mU;ht as well confess," re?

of voting for Mr. Wilson. Of course,
men of the type of Mr. Schiff will vota

misguided creatures; but he did not]
make any specific request about them

?Mr. Klibs never asked me for a
favor of any kino, and all hia public !
?md pr'vate act*,. fco far as 1 had
knowledge of them, were on tho high?
est plan of just und honorable dealing.
Mr. Bliss never even u.-k..d me tnia I
about the Standard Oil Company, and |
never In any way alluded to the stand- |
ard Oil Company to me. I never heard ,
Mr. Archbolo's name mentioned in cou- ?
ni tlon with Mr. Bliss. But a year or ;
so after the election I heard a report
that Mr. Bliss had accepted a contribu?
tion H orn Mr, Hogers, alleging us his |
justification that this was not monoy I
fiom the standard Oil Company, but !
from Mr. Hogers personally, Mr. Hog- |
era being; an old irlcnd and party as?
sociate of his."
Colonel Hoosevelt here quotes a
lengthy extract from an Interview
with Mr. Bi ts on the Harrimun-Koose
velt controversy, published in tho New
York Herald on December -4. 1811,
purporting to have been given by Mr.
Bliss a few months before his death. I
He follows this with a tribute to Mr.
Bliss lor his services to tho party In j
? Irksome, disagreeable and laborious !
! tacks which bring no rewards, bat
which It Is entirely tndlspensiblc to i
have done," and warmly defends his i
i haracter. He then continues:
"Mr. Archbold's testimony can only |
mean that Mr. Archbold had made his!
contribut'lns in the hope of getting
some special conslderat'^n to which,
as a matter of fact, he was not en?
titled, that he believed that tf he had
made tho extra contribution he would
hiv. had this special consideration,
and that Mr. Bliss thought so, too.
A Worse Accusation.
"Mr. Penro.-.- says that he. a mem?
ber of tho National Republican Com?
mittee and a United States tienutor,
advised Mr. Archbobl that It would be
a t..1st.ike for the Standard Oil Com?
pany not to contribute, and if they
did not make liberal contributions they
might Incur hostility In certain ijuar
tcrs. Surely no more extraordinary
testimony was ever submitted by a
United States Senator under the 1m
pr. .-.-ion that he whs test'fylng in his
own behalf. It embodies a far worse
accusation against him than 1 ever
should have dreamed of making.
"This language Is precisely the lan?
guage that might be used by a black?
mailing police otllcer In a big city in
advls'ng tho keeper of a law-breaking
liquor snloon or a gambling house to
contribute liberally because otherwise
he might Incur hostility in certain
? I lartors. It this language were proved
against the policeman he would h? re?
moved from the police force, and as
It Is admitted by the Senator, he should
be remover! from the Hennte.
"In concluding, I wani to say a word
about my connection with Mr. Perkins.
1 have known h!m about fourteen
years. 1 have never in my l'fo. direct?
ly or indirectly; asked him for a con?
tribution, or asked htm to assist me
in any shape or w-ay. He has always
assisted me and hacked me up of
hIS own accord. Cntll utter the state?
ment of Mr. Penrose In the Senat.- 1
never asked him If he had ever con?
tributed to my campaign fund at any
time, although I was morally certain
that he hnd done so.
"During the past fourteen years, as
far as I remember, he has but twice
Spoken to me or any matters in which
he was interested. The first time Was
at the very beginning of our acquaint?
ance, when I was Governor of New
York. He then came to Albany und
protested against my signing a cer?
tain bill for the limitation of the ag
grcgato amount of Insurance that nn
