What tho troopers havo learned ro
gardlng entangling alliances between
Republicans and Democrats, letters of
marque and reprisal against officials
( who havo failed to "programme as

learned enough to account for tho
eagerness of Prosecutor Joseph E.

certificate, of moral character to tho
lato minister of St. John tho Evangel

letters written by tho rector to tho
?choir singer.
'' "If ho has not seen such letters bo
ehould havo his eyesight examined,"
ono of tho investigators from tho

If his eyesight is right, then some
thing clso Is wrong."
'As to his statement that the Rev.
Mr. Hall went to tho Phillips farm to
tcroporlre with Mrs. Mills regarding
her Infatuation for him, tho Investlga-
'tor suggested Mr. Strieker look over
again a letter written by Mrs. Mills In
'Which sho named a fellow member of
.the choir, a woman who was almost as
notoriously seeking Uio favor of the
minister as was Mrs. Mills herself, as
'tho person who was spreading the
etorles In the congregation regarding
tho uso by tho rector and Mrs. Mills

'spooning place."

necessity of tho abandonment of the

Detective Ferdinand David of Mr.
Strieker's offico said In reply to this
criticism that ho thought Mr. Strieker
had been misunderstood because he
had himself, handled a number of let
