Oliver Spitzer Says Ever'
Time He Looks in Mir
ror lie Sees Fool
NEW YORK, May 25 Oliver Spitzor,
former superintendent of docks' of tho
JVmcrUna Sugar Refining company, ox-
-plaincd today why ho did not confess
during tho trial ending last February,
when ho was sentonced to two years
Jn the prison at Atlanta.
Such a confession, he declared, would
linve carried him to n cemetery.
In other words, ho would have impli
cated a dead man, Henry 0. Havcmeyer,
lato head of tho sugar trust.
Spitzer was under cross examination
Ly tho defonso at tho trial of Charles
B. Hoike, secretary-treasurer of th4
American Sugar Refining company, who,
with fivo subordinates, is charged with
conspiracy to defraud tho government
by undcrweighing sugar.
Ho repeated that ho hnd made his con
fession, not with hope of pardon, but to
ease his conscience.
, ."What did you say when advised to
V ess ?"' asked Clarence Lexow, for
"I said the only confession I can
lnako will carry 1110 into "a cemotory
and Mr. Stlmson (tho government
prosecutor) docs not want that."
"You aro referring to Henry 0.
Jlnvemeyer?" was asked.
"Yes," I nm," answered Spitzer.
This closed tho court incident, but
"Spitzor talked moro freely after leav
Sng tho stand. Ho said ho had met, II.
O. Havomoycr two or thrco timts, nnd
Ernest W. Oirbrncht, former refinery
superintendent, another 01 tho defend
ants. Ho had made .'his reports direct
to Mr. Havcmoyer.
Tho frauds, ho insisted, had begun bo
foro his time, although ho worked on
tho docks twenty-nino yenrs. Ho ad
mitted that tho steel springs used to
manipulate tho scales on the docks wore
"Why did ypu not tell tho truth in
tho first placof " ho was asked.
"Every tinio I look into n mirror,
I sco a domn fool," was tho answer.
"I was a fool not to do it, but I was
ashamed to let anyono know I did these
things. My credit was good; I could
$;et anything, and I did not want peo
plo to know I was fool enough to do
theso things for nothing. I got nothing
out of it.
"Another reason why I committed
per.nwy was because I thought nothing
could happen to tho sugar trust. Wo
all thought tho trust was so strong tliu
government could do nothing with it."
Asldu from Spitzer 's confession, tho
government attaches most importance
to tho testimony given today by Miss
Violet C. Mortons, a. stenographer em
ployed by tho sugar company, Sho said
sho nia'Ie three t'upics nf tho o-cal.'cd

Tho government has eight or ten
witnosses, who, it is said, will confirm
her stntement, and attempt to prove
that Heiko received theso statements.
Thoy will bo put on tho stand tomor

prosecution. Ho expects to closo his
caso bv noon.

in the country, was suspended today

Despondent because of ill health, Cal
LHines, a prospector who had resided' in
this district for tho past twenty years,
committed suicido in a canyon near
tho county hospital at about 3 o'clock
yesterday afternoon, by slashing his
throat with a razor.
The body was discovered half an hour
later by school children who liappened
to pass by the scene of tho tragedy.
The authorities were notified at once
and physicians were ru'shed to tho
scene of tho suicide, to save the man's
life, if possible. He was dead, how
ever, when tho rihysicians arrived.
For several yearSi Hines had suffered
from rheumatism and had been confined
to the county hospital for the greater
part of tho time. He acted as a helper
about the hospital and was given the
freedom of the grounds. Shortly be

From an investigation made after
tho discovery of tho body, Hines ap
parently left the hospital with the firm
determination of ending his lific.
Leaving tho hospital grounds he wenh
into a small canyon to the north east
of that institution, climbed onto a
rock' shelf and inado deliberate prep
arations to end 'his troubles."
Removing his shoes, sox and hat, ho
made a pillow of them, laid down on
his left side and drew the razor across
his throat. The keen blade severed
tho main arteries in the throat, and to
all appearances, death relieved him of
his sufferings within a few minutes.
It was the marks of blood upon tho
rocks, where it had trickled from tho
arteries of the dying man, that attract-
ed the attention of the school children,
who made an investigation and discov
ered the man's body.
Judgo Hinson Thomas, acting as cor
oner, made an investigation of tho af
fair yesterday afternoon. Nothing was"
found on or near the body to indicate
thb motive, as Hines left nosjnessago
regarding tho causo of his rash action.
It is said, however, that he had been
despondent over his physical condition
for borne time and it is believed that

Hines was 48 years of ago and was
