OLIVE OIL IMPORTERS

Mixed with Cottonseed, and
Sold to the Trade

NEW YORK, Sept. 12.— An investiga
tion is being made here, under the di
rection of the treasury department, into
alleged fraudulent Importations of olive
oil. During the last week numerous
cases are stated to have been found of
importers alleged to be engaged in re
ceiving an Inferior grade of edible olive
oil under the guise of machine oil. In'
some cases several hundred barrels of
this olive oil was brought over at a
time. These importers are said to sell
the oil to retailers who mix It with'cot
tonseed oil and then sell it as genuine
olive oil, or themselves to so mix and
The oil is shipped in rough, dirty bar
rels and no pains is taken to rid it of
its impurities or rancid qualities until
it has passed the customs offlclals. As
machine oil it comes in without "pay

duty of 40 cents a gallon can be im
Such an evasion of the customs laws
is nunlshable with the seizure of the
merchandise involved besides fines not
exceeding $5000 In each case and im
prisonment of not more than two years.
Cases are said to have been dis
covered where the oil was consigned to

Schamaus, a Russian Jew, 20 years old,

L. 1., to be examined as to his sanity.
The arrest was made by a secret

guards of the president. Schamaus,
who resides in New York city, arrived
here at 12:20 p. m. from New York,
and soon afterward had an interview
with Mr. Barnes, assistant secretary to
the president. He desired to see .the
president and talk with him about the
price of coal. He said he was the gen
eral coal agent of Greater New York.

opinion, of a general strike among the
miners in the anthracite coal region of
Pennsylvania, and the strike would re

of the country. He wanted ten min

assembled out of curiosity. Schamaus
answered all questions Intelligently and
rationally until coal was mentioned.
Then he began to deliver an address
on the question of the alleged oppres

people, and declared that had not
