NYE IMPUCATES
MEN HIGHER UP
Alleges Corruption Of Solons By
Big Business And Politicians
Gives Names Of Guilty Ones-Revelations Recited Before
Attorney Geoeral Hogan And Prosecutor Turner To
Be Repeated Before The Grand Jury-Pike County
Representative Admits Soliciting Bribe Of One
Thousand Dollars
Columbus, O., Oct. 10. Dr. George '
B. Nye, representative from Pike
county, appeared before Judge Kin
kead unexpectedly and pleaded guilty
to an indictment accusing him of hav
ing solicited a bribe in connection
sllh the Kimble bill.
The indictment specifies that Dr.
Nye, on April 18, 1911, solicited from
B. h Kimble, author of the law to re
district the Pike and Adams county
jsdJcial district, tbe sum of $1,000.
Before appearing In court, Dr. Nye
had been in secret conference with
Attorney General Hogan and Prose
cuting Attorney Turner of this city.
It is stated authoritatively he made
a full confession regarding corruption
in the general assembly, giving the
names of tbe interest and lobbyists
who have been tampering with the
legislators for years. Here is a sum
mary of the revelations Nye made:
IjobbyiHtb and interests who for
years have been corrupting leglsla
ures named. These include men well
sown in business and politics.
One lobbyist, who had a speclila
following of both senators and repre
sentatives, with Dr. Nye at their head,
given.
Dr. Ny's own income from graft in
the legislature totaled $10,000 a year.
Statements of Burns detectives fully
corroborated.
, Names of persons who raised bis
defense fund for Indicted soIodb told;
- also thobo maintaining Diesel family j
while eennte sergeant-at-arms is in
prison.
Names of several assemblymen not
under Indictment who participated in
graft made known.
Before Grand Jury.
A grand Jury Investigation Is to be
made forthwith. The expose of 1911,
It is said, will be no more sensational
than that expected now from the
grand jury.
Dr. Nyo may never be punished if
he repeats his confession to the grand
Jury and appears as witness against
those whom he implicated In the con
fession. Five other indictments
against him will be laid away until
he has fully complied with Ms prom
ises in this respect. If he should go
hack on his confession he may be
sent to the penitentiary for five years
on bis plea of' guilty.
The Pike county solon is said to
have admitted that his revenue from
graft while a member of the legisla
ture amounted to as high as $10,000
a year, tie gave tbe names of those
who contributed to these bribes. He
corroborated in toto the evidence of
raft given by Smiley, Bailey and
Barry, Burns detectives, who worked
s the first graft exposure in the
spring of 11)11 and which resulted in
the Indictment of Dr. Nye and others.
The confession exposes the persons
who are keeping Rodney J. Dlegel's
