Says Blease Admitted Knowledge
of the Lanahan Matter
IN A TALK WITH HIM
At Wright's Hotol in June, 1000,
and In Justice to All Parties Con
cerned Calls on Hleaso to Name
tho "Illgh Stato Official" Who Itcp
reeontcd the La?aban Firm Ilcforo

To the Editor of the Nows and
Courier: Please nardoo a few words
in answer lo Senator Cole L. Please
in his recent remarks lu the State
Senate with reference lo my testi

The absurdity of tho charge or
conspiracy as made by Mr. Please
must bo apparent, but there may be
Hinno conditions not understood by
all. Neither Capt. Smyth nor my
self was a supporter of Govornor
Ansel in the recent campaign. For
myself, though 1 bad the highest per
sonal regard for bim, I differed with
him on the issues of the campaign
and voted for another.
1 have never had a communication
willi him or any ono else referred lo
by Mr. Hleaso with roforonce to my
.testimony, except with Mr. Avery
Pallon, lo whom, after having been'
'.subpoenaed as a witness boforo the
.winding-up commission I wrote on
.December 30, urging him "not again
to pul me to tho humiliation of ap
pearing in a matter about, which I
know practically nothing." To this
letter I have had a reply and had

investigating committee from answer

would have been improper and incon
sistent for mo subsequently to have
rushed into print to make public
statements which I had asked the
Legislativo committee lo excuse nie
from making before them. Having
booh excused then from disclosing
Hie personage refer; ed to by Mr.
Lanallan, I was not called upon to
note any denial hy him that Mr.
Please was the person referred to.
lt will be noled, bow,.ver, that Mr.
Lanallan inver denied any liait of
tho conversations referred to by mo
in my testimony. Ho morely denied
that he had told mo that Mr. Please

however, in bis slaloment to tin' ef
fect that he had no idea that l re
ferred to him in my statements bo
foro tho investigating committee.
When 1 tostilled in June, linn1., Mr.
Lanallan had been advised of my
having been subpoenaed and of the
necessity of my testifying to my con
versation with bim if Hie Court de
creed that I should do so; further
more the attorneys representing Mr.
H. ll. Evans had been advised be

As tho intimacy between Mr. Please
and Mr. EvailS was well known. I
had presumed thal it had boori nun
mitniCUlcd lo Mr. Please what my
testimony would bo.
This precaution was "confirmed Hi
my own mind by statements of Mr.
Please to me. On the evening of my
tesl imony. Whilst Mr. Ilaynsworth
and I were supping together at
Wright's Hotel, Mr. Please, who had
boen taking slipper al a tabbi Rollie
distance away, slopped al our table
?i mo.nt. and after expressing bis
approval, of the position I bad taken
with reference lo testifying said in
o ff oct that be was familiar with all
tho fans willi regard to the employ
ment of i.e party referred lo by me
by Mr. La?aban; that he had no
apoligios to muk) I" anyone for vol

referred to he wanted to say that
thal party had not undersood fully

accepted the employment, and when
ho did learn what, was expected

i understood tho statement of Mr.
please to bo a diplomatic, acknowl
edgement of bis connection with the

terms, "a plea of confession and
avoidance." Mr. Hlease now denies
that ho had any connection with Mr.
I may add that I am advised by
Mr. Wm. Elliott of Columbia, who
waa my attorney in tho proceedings
before the Supremo Court, that. Mr.
Hleaso made to him practically the
same statement tis made above.
In justice to Mr. Hlease himself,
and in Justice to the memory of Mr.
L..nahan, Mr. Hloaso ls now, it seems
to mo, called noon to say who was
tho "high Stato official," whom Mr.
La?aban had employed, SH ho has
acknowledged full acquaintanceship
In tho matter. Whilst I cannot con
colvo that I have been mistaken as to
statements made to mo by Mr. Lana
ham, still If there bo error In what
Mr. Lanallan stated to me. Mr. Hloaso
can clear it and should do so.

The foolish young man admits the

was that he did not Know why he did

When the package arrived at the

porefctly ignorant of tho irregular

The Dorchester Kagle says:
"There is complaint now that the

who has boen confined in tho county

An Object Lesson.
In the hold of one lake steamer, 1
21,000 bushels of wheat were carried
recently from Superior to Buffalo.
Think of the pretty baking and
loaves of bread involved in that sin
gle boatload of grain, lt weighed
about 25,260,000 pounds and will mil!
into 18,946,000 pounds of Hour, con
vertible into more than 20,000.000
pound loaves of bread--three loaves
a day for each man in Admiral Evan's
licet during the whole cruise of a
year and a half. Assuming that

Tho "interests'!1 that inspired thc
Aldrich Currency bill will hardly
know it when the Senate gets
through with it. "Whatever tho
ii ?nor eccentricities of it's varigatcd
texture" remarks the New York
.Journal of Commerce, "one vicious
pattern will run all through it. lt
will provide foran emergency addi

This will be ti mere exaggeration of
the radical defect of the existing

ci icism from tho leading business
and financial newspaper of tho

Congress to pause before it. further
complicates our cumbersome finan

Senator La Follette says that sev
