the alleged altempll by Nelson G.Green,
of New York, representing the com
pary. to obtain a favorable report
from the water committee by the pay
ment of between J15.000 and $25,000.
During the recent consideration of the
bill in common councils Walter G.
Stevenson, a member of, that body
charged that $,".000 had been ettercd to
him by Peter M. Smith, a member of
the Republican city committee, to vote.
for the bill.
Wulkrr Proves n Good Witness.
A council investigating committeee
was ai ; otnted and is still al work, but
District Attorney Graham promptly
took up the case, and Smith was held
in $10.n00 bail and yesterday's sensa
tioral developments came at his hear
ing before Judges Gordon and Bregy,
cf the common p'eas court, who sat as
committing magistrates. Councilman
Louis J. Walker declared that he ar.d
Councilman Edwin E. Smith had each
accepted $50i from Ctninc ilmrtn Charles
Seger to vote for the bill in committee.
He a'ti ated that Coun-ilman J.
Emery llytam had previously offered
him s.'i.oo to vote for the bill in the
Chamber, but he had refused the money
and voted against it. When Council
man Walker was called as a witness
he was a' first very nervous. He said
he did not kaow Green: had accepted
no money and knew of none bavtSZ
been ace e;)ted.
Judge (iris Him to Tell the Truth.
Judge Bleary then said to him im
pressively: "With God as your judge,
were you offered any money?" Wal
ker huncr his head and after a mo
ment's silence, replied: "Yes. I was."
and life named the men by whose per
suasion he had fallen. The money, he
said, was paid in Councilman Soger's
saloon and he had seen Councilman
Edwin Smith receive the ISM at tha
same time with himself. Smith here
took the stnd and denied having re
ceived any money. A like denial was
made by A. II. H. Morrow, who was
chairman of the sub-committee.
Some ol the Needed "I''ixlng."
Councilman R. E. Drirghurst gave
sensational testimony. Green, he said,
had come to him and said: "This bill
is going to be a law. There is no ques
tion about it. Delect coune il will pass
it and common council will pass it and
the mayor will sign it. I wish you
would interview the members of coun
cils for me. Some of them will have
to be s -en and flxe'd. If you will find
out for me who they are and what they
want I'll look out for the rest. That
is my business and I'm used to that
kind of wo:!:."
Hringhurst said he not only refused
to do this but has since had nothing;
to do with Green.
