CORRUPT PRACTICES ALLEGED
Fottmaster and County Treasurer-1
elect Among Those Said to Havo
Been Implicated In Election Frauds.
Preliminary Report of Grand Jury a
Mere Beginning, Officials Say In
dicted Men Promptly Furnish Bond.
Stoubonvlllo, O., Dec. 7. The Jef
ferson county grand Jury, which has
been Investigating alleged corrupt
flection conditions, made a partial re
port, returning nine Indictments
against seven prominent ' citizens of
Two Indictments were returned
against Postmaster Richard Ollson,
two against County Treasurer-elect
Samuel Stark, and one each against
Hugh Patterson, Republican county
chairman; Probate Judge-elect John
O. Belknap, Fred A. Stone, an attor
ney and an unsuccessful candidate for
probate Judge at the May primary;
Ira Blaokburn, an attorney, and Rich
ard Kramer, former, deputy county
The report Is but a mere beginning,
officials say, as It Is expected that In
dictments will be returned Involving
every county official-elect, possibly
with one exception; scores of citi
zens and Republican party workers,
and may Include prominent business
men who, It is said, furnished finan
cial aid to men In politics.
Eight of the Indictments charge
violations of the Kimble corrupt prac
tice law, on which the Investigation
has been based. In that way the Jef
ferson county Investigation differs
from the probe of election Irregulari
ties In Adams county, In which about
1,00 fOtcrs were disfranchised. State
officials say the present Investigation
Is the first opportunity that has been
offered whereby a test of the corrupt
practice lnv could be made.
One indictment is for felony. This
charge Is sold to hove been placed
against Richard Kramer, formerly
county auditor, and la the result of
bis testimony before the grand Jury.
Postmaster Oilson was appointed a
little over six months ago by Presi
dent Tatt. Ho was the leader of the
Taft forces In the recent campaign,
as well as being very active In behalf
of the successful campaign of his
brother, John Ollson, for state repre
sentative, nB well as that of Probate
Ollson served two terms as sheriff
of Jefferson county, and has been the
Republican leader of the county for a
number of years. All of the Indicted
men furnished bond.
