When he came to my office I had requested Colbert and Hauscr, of the city detective force, to be here and arrest him for bribery. He came, and was immedi ately handcuffed and take away to the po lice station." HILTON 1. mtOU SEE. Au7 Information the ew Has Will Develop Later, He Says. Hilton U. Brown, general manager of the News, was a hard man to find yesterday afternoon and last evening, but shortly after 8 o'clock he was located at the Uni versity Club and called by telephone. "Mr. Brown." the Journal would like to have a statement from you in regard to the alleged connection of tho detective, James Smith, with the News." I prefer to make no statement In re gard to the case at this time," replied Mr. Brown. "All information that the News has will develop fully a little later." "Will you state whether the News was Interested in employing Smith or other de tectives?" "For an answer to that I can refer you to Mr. Charles R. Williams's statement that the News has never employed a detective." SMITH I A CELL. Brought Here by Earl Martin, He Says A Disconnected Story. Smith, in his cell at the police station yesterday, refused to discuss his arrest other than to say he was imprisoued false ly and had done nothing for which he could be punished. He said he would not talk until his attorney. John 8. Duncan, was with hlui. and then at his instructions. Smith claims to be a detective and a law yer. He said he had worked in Wash ington on the police- force as a detective and as a sergeant, and until recently was a practiciug attorney In St. Louis courts. Smith claims to be a Knight Templar and a member of the Scottish Rite Ma sons. "All I want is a fair deal," said Smith. 'If I have a trial I will tell all I know about this. I am not guilty of any viola tion of the law and have done nothing for which to be arrested. I am imprisoned falsely and do not know why." Other than t ask that his attorneys be sent for, Smith would not discuss the case at that time. SAYS ID3 SAW MARTIN. When questioned closely later Smith said that Earl Martin, then of the Indianapo lis News, had come to see him in St. Louis about three weeks ago and offered him Inducements to come to Indianapolis and work for the Citizens' League. What the Inducements were and what work he was to do Smith would not say and answered all questions evasively. He said that in pur suance of an agreement reached with Mar tin in St. Louis he came to Indianapolis about three weeks ago and began negotia tions with the people for whom he was to work. These people. Smith says, were Jamea W. Noel and Dr. Hunt, and with each of them he claims v personal ac qxiaintance. He said he saw Noel fre quently and called on him In his office. After being told that he was accused of attempting to bribe Logsdon the prisoner came the nearest during the interview to talking about the case. He said he flrut called on Logsdon about .two weeks ago after having hrst made arrangements to call on him. He said the arrangements .ir made through references, although he refused to suy who the references were. He cSiin.-l they were men in what is known u the Hfetiil element" of the city. He would Mot say where he telephoned Logsdon from when he first made the tu-aagenit-iu. WHAT HM SAID. During his nrst ijlt to LogMon he said he talked slot machines with him." and tried to tiiHl out how to "tlx it." He had m tetvram purporting to authorize him to do this as pctsn lor a New York slot ma chine I ompany. This was the telegram which Srnkh told the detectives was pre pared In this dty. His attempts were par tially successful, although he made no offer, he said. Afur that SruiUi aaya he had six His own ideas of style he had; Himself and horse he gayly clad The wise Egyptian of days remote, Who never heard of trousers or coat. All this we learn from what was hid In the colossal pyramid. JLGI9C3 or seven interviews with Logsdon, at each of which he was informed that the thing could not be arranged until another man had been "seen." The other man s name was furnished Smith, so he says, but he declined to divulge it. Last Wednesday Smith claims that Logsdon made the $1,500 proposition to him contingent on the ac quiescence of the other man to the deal. Smith says they did not complete the trans action that day or Friday, when they met again and talked the situation over. Fri day resulted in nothing, and Smith claims the negotiations ceased until yesterday, when lie visited Logsdon in answer to a telephone call received the night before. Smith refused to say who had entertained him while in the city and denied that he had received any money from the Citizens' League or Earl Martin. He said he was told who would pay him, but that he had collected nothing. He says he has been stopping at the Stubbius Hotel, but had no -lodgings in Indianapolis permanently and stayed at various places. SEVTIMEVr WITH LOGSDO. Many Think It Is Xow a Matter of Per secution, 'ot Prosecution. The arrest of the somewhat mysterious James Smith and the subsequent exposure of the alleged scheme to trap Edwin Logs- EDWIN 0. L0GSU0N Who caused the arrest of James Smith on charge of attempted bribery. don in a bribery deal was almost the sole topic of conversation last night around the hotels and clubs where the men of the town congregate. The case was discussed pro and con, and the preponderance of the sentiment seemed to be with Mr. Logsdon. In fact, it seemed that the affair had re sulted in a reversal of feeling among many who had been criticising the present city administration and had been clearly out of accord with it. "I did think that there was something wrong in the city administration that called for a genuine investigation," said one man, a Republican, in the lobby of the Clay pool, "and when the Logsdon inquiry was started I had prejudged him. and my ver dict was not favorable, either; but since this thing has come up I'm inclined to feel that he is being persecuted Instead of pros ecuted, so to speak. I don't believe in methods of that kind, and I'd like to see some one else suffer now as a result of the exposure." Said another man, a rock-ribbed Demo crat: "I never 'oted for a Republican in my life, and I'm fifty-two years old, but I'm blanked if they won't force me to vote for Bookwalter if this sort of thing is kept up. I can't stand for a deal like that." There were numerous other expressions of a similar character, although, of course, there were those who thought that the game was all right, and that a public offi cial might expect to be subjected to a test of that kind. CAPT. GERBER TALKS. Says There Will Be Developments that Wilt Make People Squirm. Captain Samuel Gerber, of the city de tective force "pumped" Smith at the police station yesterday and secured information from him which caused him to remark that several other people would be impli cated in the transaction before the trial of Smith is disposed of. Captain Gerber se cured from Smith the facts already stated, that Is, that Smith had been hired by Mar tin, and had come to Indianapolis to se cure evidence against Edwin Logsdon for the Citizens' League. Smith told Gerber that he had met Dr. Hunt and Mr. Noel fre quently, had seen Martin in Indianapolis and that all of the gentlemen with whom he was associated knew what was going on when he approached Logsdon. Ca;. tain G -rber n-marked .u:,;:u ar.tly yes terday evening that he had learned sever al things In hl conversation with Smith that would be interesting when they were ready for publication. He said that in addi tion to being interesting the facts he had learned might cause several people to be brought before the grand Jury on charges of conspiring to bribe a public official. E It I. R. JK1IV ATT1TIDE. In n Poatftluu Where He In l nable to Tnlk Freely, He Says. Kir! i: Martin. when seen at his apartments in the Rink last evening and asked concerning his relations with James Smith, repeated the denial he had given out earlier In the day. 'The only thing I care to say at present in regard to the case." he said, "is that i ther Jamea Smith nor any other detec l.vm was employed by me as managing edi tor of the News nor by me personally." "The man Smith is reported to bava said that he came to Indianapolis in response to a telegram sent him at St. Louis by you. Did you send such a telegram?" "I can say that I did not send a telegram to any man by the name of James Smith." "How about sending one to a BL Louis man under some other name?" Mr. Martin smiled. "Smith is also reported to have said that after he came here he held a conference with representatives of the Citizens' League and you at which the trap for Mr. Logsdon was planned. Do you know any thing about such a conference?" "I know that I was never present at any conference at which this man Smith was present." "Do you know that this man was em ployed for the purpose he states?" Mr. Martin sidestepped. "I don't know who employed him," he said. "Really," he continued, forestalling fur ther questions, "I should be glad to talk freely in regard to this matter, but I am in a rather embarrassing position. I have but recently left the employ of the News, and under the circumstances I think that Mr. Hilton U. Brown, general manager of the News, is the proper person for you to see." t Rt VOR OF OTHER ARRESTS. Mr. Logsdon, However, Saya They May Not Be Made. There was a rumor yesterday afternoon that Edwin D. Logsdon contemplated filing affidavits against others than Smith on charges of attempting to corrupt him. When seen last night Mr. Logsdon said nothing further would be done at present, although the matter was under considera tion. Mr. Fortune Not Tnlklim. William Fortune, a member of the Citi zens' League, said last night that he did not care at this time to discuss the arrest of Smith. He said Attorney Duncan would make all the statement necessary at this time. GRAND JURY ACTIO. The Case of Smith Will Probably Be Aired Before It. Should Smith be bound over to the grand Jury by Judge Whallon in Police Court, Tuesday, all of the facts in the alleged at tempt at bribery will be brought to the at tention of the Marion county grand Jury next Monday. During Smith's examination the evidence against him his own state ments to the police and other persons and the statement of Mr. Logsdon that Smith actually made the attempt at bribery will bo used, and In them the implications that Smith was inspired to the act by the per sons by whom he was employed will be taken cognizance of by the grand Jury. County Prosecutor John C. Ruckelshaus said last night that the Smith affair had not been brought officially to his notice but that it is now in the hands of his office through his deputy, Ira M. Holmes. In the Police Court. He said that should Smith be bound over on Mr. Logsdon's testimony and that of the other witnesses against him. every effort will be made to inform the grand Jury of the details of the alleged crime. The allusions in the prisoner's state ment to Earl Martin. Dr. George E. Hunt and J. W. Noel will be investigated and these gentlemen will be asked to appear be fore the grand jurv and tell of their con nection with the man. These gentlemen cannot be subpoenaed and made to testify should they desire not to do so. Their own statements may have the effect of incrimi nating them shod Id they corroborate the statements made by Smith, and they can refuse to testify. Mr. Ruckelshaus said he woold sift the matter to the bottom. Without taking any stock in the motives for his action or any thing else connected with Smith, he will be brought before the grand Jury and if. from his statements, sufficient information is lodged with the Jurors td justify the return ing of true bills against the gentlemen representing the Citizen' League, indict ments will be returned and they will be charged with conspiracy to commit a felony. The crime of whic h Smith is accused Is punishable by imprisonment in the State's prison for from two to fourteen years and under the statute providing for the punish ment of accessories to a felony the gen tlemen implicated by Smith may be tried for this offense, should they be indicted, and would be liable to a similar sentence from the Criminal Court. PRESIDENT AT SEATTLE HIS STEAMER ESCORTED I'P THE SOIXD BY FORTY OTHER VESSELS. Speeeh In Which He Predicted a Great Future for Alaska Seattle the Gateway, SEATTLE, Wash., May 23. Glorious sun shine to-day heralded the approach of Pres ident Roosevelt to Seattle on the steamer Spokane. Forty steamers, great and small. Including the revenue cutter McCulloch, es corted the Spokane. A salute of twenty-one guns was fired as President Roosevelt set foot on Seattle soil. He was received at the wharf by Mayor Humes. A fey pre sentations and the party entered the car riages and the long drive through the streets of Seattle began. Every gaily-decorated window was thronged with sightseers and the streets were packed with enthusias tic crowds. The President made a brief speech at the university grounds. He al luded to the great future of the "queen city of Puget sound," and concluded by saying: "You can't realize how great your future is. No other body of water on the face of the earth offers quite the advantages to the peo ple who live about Puget sound. No State, and I include them all when I say it, has quite such great advantages as this great State of Washington. You, the people of B line, art- at tne gateway of Alaska, and even the people of the countrv that 1 com from are beginning to appreciate the greatn' of Alaska. Tne men of my age who are In this great audience will riot be old men before they will see one of the greatest and most populous States of the entire Tnion in Alaska. I predict that Alaska will, within the next century, sup port as large a population as does the en tire Scandinavian peninsula of Europe, the people of which, by their brains and ener gies, have left their mark on the face of Europe. I predict that you will see Alaska with her enormous resources of mineral, fisheries, her possibilities that almost ex ceed belief, produce as hardy and vigorous a race as any part of America." After the applause had subsided the Pres ident re-entered his carriage and was driv en back to the wharf, accompanied as be fore by the plaudits of the people. He then embarked once more on the Spokane and started for Everett. After his return from Everett the Presi dent was driven to the Grand Opera House, which was crowded with Alaskans waiting to hear him. After delivering a short ad dress on Alaska a committee of the Arctic Brotherhood an exclusively Alaskan order came forward and presented to him a miniature ;.laer miner's nan of solid gold, on which was Inscribed an invitatioa to the President to visit Alaska as the guest of the order. As a pendant to this offering he was al?o presented, on behalf of eleven transportation companies doing business in Alaska, with a gold pocketbook containing j.a.-s. s t r all linrs in east- the rhn-f executive rhould ver visit the northern country. After suitably acknowledging the pte lit Ilona the President went to a ho tel to spend the night. Accimed of Killing- Her Huftband. DES MOINES. la..

He easily maintained his advan tage and raced down the back stretch two lengths ahead, the other contenders still well bunched. Judge Himes increased his lead rounding the far turn and struck the straightaway for home about three lengths to the good. He was running easily, while the others were beginning to show the effect of chasing him on the heavy and holding track. From the time the stretch was reached there was no doubt of the result, Judge Himes winning, pulled almost to a walk, by about eight lengths, with Fa vonlus second, three lengtns ahead of Little Scout.

LONG AUTOMOBILE RACE START FROM VERSAILLES FOR MAD RID MADE THIS MOKMMi, Several Weil-Known Americana In the Contest Serious Aceldenta Feared A Society Event. PARIS, May 23. Great crowds began to assemble early this evening at Versailles, where, before daylight to-morrow morning the start of the Paris-Madrid automobile race will be made. In many respects the race will be one of the most remarkable ever run, both from the number and character of the contestants, the prodigious power and speed of the machines, and the probability of record-breaking runs. Leading sportsmen from all over Europe and many from the other side of the Atlantic have gathered here to see the performance, as it is fully expected that the records of the Paris- Berlin race in 1901 and the Paris-Vienna race in 1902 will be far exceeded by this, the leading long distance contest of 1903. Owing to the participation in the contest of a number of Americans, including V. K. Vanderbilt, Jr., and Foxhall Keene, great interest has been aroused among Americans, especially the members of the Newport set, who have arrived in large numbers. Many fashionable parties of Americans went out to Versailles in auto mobiles and some chartered special trains. Among the parties were those of Colonel and Mrs. John Jacob Astor, Mr. and Mrs. Herman Oelrichs. Elisha Dyer, Mr. and Mrs. Clarence Moore, Mr. and Mrs. Trux ton Beale, of Washington; Mr. and Mrs. I'eiry Belmont, Captain Philip Leding, of New York; Mr. HDd Mrs. E. C. Benedict, of New York, who have just returned from an automobile tour through the ChauteaU district of the alley of the Loire; John Biddle, of Washington; Mrs. A.'G. Bpreck les, S. G. Murphy and Mr. and Mrs. Fre mont Older, ot San Francisco. The first stage of the contest is from . t sallies to Bordeaux, "43 miles; the sec ond, Bordeaux to Victoria, 20S miles, and the third. Victoria to Madrid. 261 ml!es. It i3 expected that Bordeaux will be reached at noon to-inorn.w and the cont- fttanta will rest there until Monday. The itr t b from Bordeaux to Victoria will be run on Tuesday and that from Victoria to Madrid on Wednesday. The llrst arrival probably will reach Madrid a beut noon Wed ;day. Many persons fear that serious accidents may happen owing to the terrific speed, the ponderous weight of the late-st types of motors and the great number of the . entestants. It is expected that Kournler and W K. Vunderbiit will make eighty five miles an hour on the roads outfldc the cities. The Arne1: lean entries are: W. K. Van derbilt. driving a ninety-two-h r- machine; C. Gray Dir.smore, ninety-horsepower machine; W. T. Dannat, the An can artist, slxty-horsc-power machine; Foxhall Keene. sixty-hore-poer ma chaine. and Tod Sloan, a forty-horse-power machine. Shortly after midnight troops arrive! on the scene and cleared the track, a total of 6,00 soldiers and 4,000 policemen being stationed on the road. The start in the race was made at a 3 Harter to 4 this (8uaday) meaning, t'harles arrott. the Knglish automobilist, was the firtt to receive the signal to go. Y. K. Vanderbilt, jr.. had a bad start at 4:18 a. m. He presented himself at the starting post a minute late, and there h,iI a slight discussion which caused him to lose another minute. He was reported to have passed Rambouillet, twenty-eighth In order, at 4:45 a. m.. going in fine form. He was scheduled sixtie-th in order of starting. AMCIEMB.1TS.
