that the Holy See is anxious to main-

Congressional Investigation in
McMurray's Town To-day.
Officials Believe That Indians
Will Benefit from the Light
Shed on Their Affairs.
McAlester, Okla., Aug. 7. — That a new
era of wholesome legislation by Congress
has dawned for the Indians as a result of
the Congressional investigation into the
McMurray contracts is the belief among
Senators, Representatives and other gov
ernment officials assembled here-
The committee appointed by the House
of Representatives and headed by Repre
sentative Charles 11. Burke, of South Da
kota, to inquire into the charges of Sen
ator Thomas P. Gore, that he had been
offered a $25,000 or $50,000 bribe to help
put the McMurray deal through Congress,
arrived here to-day from Muskogee. and
to-morrow will continue its hearings.
Mi loaf IT is the home town of J. W.
McMurray. the attorney who with others
holds the contracts. It is expected that
more light will be thrown on Senator
Gore's assertion that the sale is contem
plated for $30,000,000 to a New York syn
dicate of 450,000 acres of coal and asphalt
land now owned by the Choctaw and
Chickasaw Indians, from whom JlcMur
ray secured contracts that would allow
him 10 per cent attorney's fees, or $3,000.
000. Also, more evidence is believed to
be forthcoming concerning "Jake" L.
Hamon. who is charged by Senator Gore
with having offered the bribe to secure
the approval of the contracts by Con
Expect More Disclosures.
The testimony given by Representative C.
E. Creager. of Oklahoma, that Hamon
called him to a hotel in Washington and
there "suggested" he might obtain an in
terest in the contracts If opposition were
removed, together with the Gore charges,
is- not believed to be. the end of the dis
Mr. Creasefa testimony was regarded as
supptemi ataxy to that of the Gore charges.
Hamon. who entered a denial of all the
charges made by Mr. Creager, Senator
Gore, D. F. Gore, the Senator's brother,
and J. L. Thompson, the Senator's secre
tary, has been an Interested auditor at all
the session?. Congressman Bird McGuire.,
of Oklahoma, and Senator Charles Curtis,
of Kansas, each named by Mr. Gore as
having been the men mentioned by Hamon
as being "interested" in the land deal, have
Senator Curtis denied having any relation
with Hamon. Mr. McGuire. who testified
concerning meeting Hamon in Washington,
and who. in response to questioning, de
nied he had ever been "improperly ap
proached" in relation jo the McMurray
contracts, told the committee he was ready
to reappear at any time.
The Dame of Vioe-Presldent Sherman,
who, according to Senator Gore, was men
tioned by Hamon ns the man "higher up,"
has been eliminated from the investigation,
bo far a? Senator Gore la concerned. The
Senator said he had no object in mention
sherman's name other than tc re
all that Hair on had said to him.
Since ftfcMurray also ha? been charged
or. the stand witJi having offered a $25,000
bribe to a Choctaw delegate to Washington
bo wi; sition to old contracts that
were substantially disapproved by President
Etoosevelt in L9OB. it is believed McMurray
■■ ill be called to testify. What are known
as the MrMurray contracts consist of about
ten tnousar.d documents secured individually
with the Indians.
The story told on the stand by Green Mc-
Cnrtain, chief of the eighteen thousand
Choctaws. and a venerable fighter of pio
neer days, made a deep impression. Mc-
Cartaln relat-d how his tribe year after
year had waited for the government to sell
their lands, and how at last the Indians,
ing discouraged, had become the prey
of attorneys, whose promises were more
glowing than those of the government.
It cost his tribe in the last ten years, Mc-
Curtain related, (300,000 in attorney's fees,
beside? a share In the (750.000 fee paid to
the McMurray firm several years ago in the
citizenship cases involving the Choctaws
and <"■-•:!' kasaws.
Congressman J. H. Stephens, of Texas, a
member of ■; c present investigating com
mittee, in a speech in Congress referred to
the |750,000 fee as "a scandal." and assert
ed that attorneys should have been made
to pay back the money.
"It is evident that the whole Indian sit
■ ■ oeeda to be rone over by the gov
ernment." said an official to-day. "The
Indians are the wards of the government;
yet they have become the prey of attor
i-v.r instance, one attorney received
j- ■..., a year for representing one tribe, and
ddee in New York.
"In instance? only where the interests of
the government and tho.^e of the Indians
conflict should attorneys be employed. As
far as the sale of the land is concerned,
the government itself, by treaty, has agreed
to di pose cf The land and give the pro
ceed- to the Indians. The- evidence that
has developed certainly will enlighten Con

Declares That Qualey Suggested
Buying of Bonds to Mrs. Bull.
Will Make Effort to Put Mag
nesia-Asbestos Company on
Dividend Paying Basis.
Following the exclusive interview given
by him to The Tribune for yesterday's
paper. Harvey W. t'orbett. who is code-
Eendant with John A. Qualey again;: Mrs.
William T. Bull'? charges that P6.000 was
taken from hor by improper methods for
Hrveatment in duaiey's MagneFia-Apbe>tos
Oampany. added some further points of in
terest to his story last night.
"I would like to add a little." he said,
"to what I told The Tribune lost night
about Mr?. Bull's investment in the stock
of the Magnesia-AsbeFtos company. When
Mrs. Bull Brat consulted Mr. yualey it was
about her business affairs in general. She
told him that she was having trouble with
her coexecutor of her husband's estate,
George W. Young, and she wanted Mr.
Qualey's advice on how to invest about
$50,000 she had.
"Mr. Qualey did not at once seek her
money for the magnesia company. He told
her that the bond market was in good con
dition and advised her to put her money in
bonds. Mrs. Bull didn't want to do that
because the returns would not be large
enough or quick enough. It was only after
that that Mr. Qualey advised her to invest
in the magnesia company."
"Did you ever go to Newport yourself ,tc
see Mrs. Bull, Mr. Corbett?"
Never Been in Newport.
'It so happens." Mr. Corbett replied,
"that I have never been in Newport in my
life. I have Dassed through Rhode Island
and I was in Providence once, but I have
never been in Newport."
"How was it, Mr. Corbett, that you were
in prison so long before being bailed out?
Why weren't your friends a little quicker
about coming to your aid?"
"My friends came to me at once," he
said. "They wanted to bail me out just
as soon as they knew that J was in prison.
But I said to them that I could not go free
unless Mr. Qualey did also. I told my wife
and I told my friends that if Qualey were
guilty I was, too. And I said that if I
were guilty, if I had been bamboozling peo
ple out of their money, I was right where
I belonged, behind the bars, and I wanted
to stay there."
"When this affair is over what do you in
tend to do about the Magnesia-Asbestos
"Why." Mr. Corbett said, "I am going
right along with the company. I've got
to do it. The only way that I can prove
that I am right and that this company is
an honest one is to make it a success. And
that is what I am going to do."
"There have been some charges made
that Alan A. Ryan is in a conspiracy with
Mrs. Bull to get control of the company.
What do you think about that?"
'I don't think those charges should have
been made," Mr. Corbett said. "Mr. Ryan
was asked to look into our company by an
attorney, and he made a trip over to the
Newark plant. I never understood that he
was asked by Mrs. Bull to do so, or that
he did it for Mr?. Bull. After his visit to
the plant he wanted some more information
from Mr. Qualey. and it was just a chance
that Qualey was telephoning to Mr. Ryan
when he was arrested. But lam sure Mr.
Ryan had nothing to do with the arrest,
and I have never thought there was any
Mrs. Bull Witness Again To-day.
Mrs. Bull will again be a witness before
Magistrate Krotel, in the Harlem police
court, at 3 o'clock to-day in the hearing of
the charges against Qualey and Corbett.
She is still subject to Mr. Melntyre's cross
examination. After her testimony is in It
is understood that the prosecution will put
Leo Kresper and several other witnesses on
the stand to show how they were induced
to buy stock in the Magnesia- Asbestos Com
pany. Witnesses will also be brought for
ward, it is understood, to testify as to the
value of the Newark plant.
The prosecution feels sure that Qualey
and Corbett will be held for the grand jury.
The District Attorneys office has already
made its plans for the grand jury hearing,
and this is expected to take pltice this
week. Mrs. Bull has had a long conference
with Assistant District Attorneys Rice and
Perkins, and several other witnesses have
been examined in the District Attorney's
Superintendent's Friends Active

Friends of Superintendent Hotchkis? of
the Insurance Department have started
an informal canvass of the state in the
hope of persuading the leaders that he
would be the strongest possible candidate
that the Republicans could name for Gov
ernor this fall. They are saying that he
is the man above all others that Governor
Hughes would like to see to succed him,
and that this fact would do more than any
thing else to arouse the interest of the
Hughes Republicans, many of whom are
more or less disgruntled at the way in
which some of the leaders opposed the
Governor last winter.
Although Superintendent Hotchkiss has
not formally announced himself as a can
didate for the nomination, his friends say
that he would be willing to undertake the
leadership of the party this fall if he could
feel that the leaders were back of him. If
the canvass now being made indicates
that any considerable number of the leaders
look with favor on Mr. Hotchkiss, it is un
derstood that his candidacy will be for
mally announced within a short time.
The fact that Superintendent Hotchkiss

lector L.oe.b and Naval Officer Ktacke led to
the report that President Taft looked with
favor on the suggestion that the superin
tendent be the Republican nominee for Gov

on an automobile trip up state, meeting

Long Island Brakeman Found
Safety in Lying Still.
Bruised ant 1 battered, Theodore B.
Eendal. a brakeman on the Long Island
Railroad, went home to his family in
Jamaica yesterday afternoon, singing
songs of thanksgiving. A short time be
fore he had been run over by a pas
senger train in the railroad yards, Long
Island City, but escaped serious injury.
Kendal takes the record for his feat.
He was one of a drill crew who were
shifting empty passenger trains, and
was stationed on a car in the centre of
the train. While putting on a brake
something slipped and he was thrown
head first from the platform, falling be
tween the bumpers. He struck on his
hands, and in some way straightened
out face downward between the tracks.
Although confused by the fall, he knew
his only course was to lie perfectly still.
He had time enough to mentally thank
his good fortune that the locomotive was
hauling instead of shunting the train,
and that it had gone on ahead. Then he
wondered if any of the low running gear
of the new cars would catch him.
When the last car rattled over his
head trainhands ran to where he was
lying. He wanted to walk, but his com
rades would not let him, as they thought
he might have been injured badly. Sur
geon Meischner, of St. John's Hospital,
examined him, but beyond small cuts
and bruises Kendal was unhurt, so he
took the remainder of the day off and
went home.

President of Chili Says He Is
Splendidly Fitted to Rule.
President Montt of Chili and his party
reached New York last night aftor a pleas
ant visit to Boston and to Beveryl The
Chief Executive of Chili was feeling well
last night, despite the arduous journey.
"President Montt was very much im
pressed with Mr. Taft," said Sefior Alberto
Yoacham, the Chilian Charge d'Affaires.
"He had never met him before, for when
President Montt was here twenty years
or so ago Mr. Taft was then still in the
West and not quite the national figure that
he is to-day.
"One thing that pleased President Montt
very much," he continued, "was that he
had the privilege of being received really
in President Taffs home. A reception at
The White House would, of course, have
been a state affair, but at Beverly it was
so much more informal that it was just
like a simple luncheon anywhere. Every
thing on the trip was splendidly managed,
thanks largely to Captain Butt and Chand
ler Hale, the Third Assistant Secretary of
State, who is with us, and President Montt
said he enjoyed the trip on the Mayflower
'At the luncheon he engaged in conver
sation with Mr. Taft, who seemed in unusu
ally good spirits. President Montt paid
afterward that he thought the President
of the United States was a man splendidly
fitted to occupy his great office. Governor
Draper also produced a fine impression."
President Montt attended mass in Boston
yesterday and took the train for this city
about 1 o'clock in the afternoon, arriving
here about 7 p. m. He will spend to-day
leisurely, and perhaps may leave the Plaza
this morning for a trip through the busi

He sails to-morrow morning for Europe on

has as yet received .no reply from Mr.
Roosevelt relative to the proposed visit of
the former President here on Tuesday, when

Involving all the militia and regulars in

This was visitors' day, and thousands
from the surrounding country loiterer

no manoeuvres, and the men were allowed
to do as they pleased. Despite the fact
that the troops have Just been paid off,
there is practically no desertion in the
camp, and General Grant is well pleased.
On account of the unfavorable weather of

martuk twenty-six years old, a shirtwaist
maker of No. 322 East 101 st street, recently
that he could not swim from the dock at
96th street across Hell Gate to Mill Rock
and back again. Romartuk took the bet,
and his Mends made a pool of $20. He set
out on his swim yesterday afternoon. He
got to Mill Rock, which is about opposite
96th street, and started back again. Sud
denly his friends and a throng of people
watching him from Riverside Park, at 92d
street, noticed that he was in trouble.

States Volunteer Lifesaving Corps, set out
in a rowboat. and after a hard pull reached
Romartuk. who was ready to give up.
Durr was himself exhausted, and he had
to wait until another oarsman reached him
before he and the swimmer could be taken
back to the Manhattan shore.

Alexander C. Hasbrouck, of Highland,
announced to-night his verdict in his in
quest into the death of Clemente Dema
ron, the Italian hotel proprietor, who was
6hot and killed by Louis Victor Seydel,
of New York, at West Park on Sun
day, July 24. The Coroner finds that
"Clemente Demaron was killed by a bul
let from a pistol in the hands of Louis
Victor Seydel."
Coroner Hasbrouck files no memoran
dum with his verdict, but in an inter
view he stated that in his opinion the
deed was inexcusable. He had stated
all along that he believed there was no
provocation for the deed, and he still
holds to this belief.
Mrs. Seydel. when on the witness
stand last Friday, stated that she heard
the Italian quarrelling with her husband
and that two other Italians came on the
premises, as If to surround Mr. Seydel.
It was then that Mr. Seydel came into
the house and got his revolver, his wife
helping him to hunt for It. Seydel then
returned to the yard and shot Demaron.
He claims he did it in self-defence.

Proposed Action Against J. W.
Ellis by Brother Not Taken
Charles B. Ellis, for twenty-seven years
a resident of Ireland, has returned to his
native land. He has announced the rea
son of his coming to be the bringing of an
action for $2.0C->.OOO against his only brother,
John W. Ellis, retired, millionaire banker,
and the tetter's son. Ralph N. Ellis, for
mer master of the foxhounds of the Mead
ow Brook Club.
Tho ground for the threatened action,
according to Ellis, Is that his brother and
nephew forced him into exile and kept him
in Ireland all these years because he in
terfered with his brother's financial plans.
In a public notice published In one of the
newspapers of the city. Charles B. Ellis
advertises for -a lawyer or syndicate to
conduct a suit for J2,000,0w by Charles B.
Ellis (seventy-nine) against his only broth
er. John W. Eili.s (ninety-five.i, of No. 22 |
West 57th street and elsewhere, and Ralph
N Ellis (flfty-five\ of the same address, i
in that they caused him to be kidnapped
on January 1, ISB3. and forced him against
his will to take passage on the steamer
Wyoming by the then Superintendent of
Detectives Byrnes, and was landed at
Queenstown and left to starve.
"Charles B. Ellis, at the end of twenty
seven years and eight months, returns in
full vigor of mind and body to avenge his
inhuman deportation. Mr. Ellis fought for
his country in the great war, when his
relative remained at home in Inglorious
ease to amass wealth and revel in luxury, j
which the patriotism of such men as his
> brother rendered possible. (syndicate to
bear all costs, and take fees for services
out of one-half returns."
Once Inmate of Asylum.
In explanation, Charles B. Ellis said he
had been lockedup in an asylum through a
conspiracy between his wife and his brother.
He got out after nine months.
At that time, he says, he was a civil en
gineer and had property in Kar.sas. Later
he came to New York and sot employment
as a civil engineer on tho Union Pacific, but
his brother prevented his going to work.
Then, he says, he exposed some financial
deals! and his brother caused his arrest and
Inspector Byrnes gave him the choice of
going to jai! or going to Ireland for the
rest of his life. "I defied Byrnes." he soya.
"The next day I was put aboard the Wy
oming, Byrnes going down with me. I was
guarded all the way across, and toM that I
would receive a remittance of £1 a montb.
for my support."
In support of his claim that h^ has been
ill treated by his brother and nephew, he
produces a letter, dated February, 1910,
in which Ralph X. Ellis asks him to correct
a deed made in March, 1998, conveying to
Ralph Ellis the property In Kansas. The
letter says with regard to the transfer el
the property: "Thos<=, you will remember,
you did tn consideration of certain things
done then and previously thereto."
John W. -GUis. referred to by his brother.
was born in Vermont Comity, Ohio. His
family came to America :n the seventeenth
century from Sandwich. England, and set
tled at Sandwich, Mass. He began busi
ness in the wholesale drygooda t-
Cincinnatl. and in 1563 organized the First
National Bank of Cincinnati. In I^9 he
came to New York as manager of the
Wtnslow, I>anier & Co. bank. In 183 and
ISSO he reorganized the Northern Pacific
Railroad after it had failed. He formed a
syndicate which took MMQfcMG of its bonds
and finished the road through to the Pacirlc
Coast. He retired from business in IStt
General Grant invited Mr. Ellis to become
Secretary of the Treasury, but the banker
declined the office.
Suit Absurd, Says Son.
John W. Ellis could not be seen yester
day, but his son, Ralph N. Ellis, was at
his home, in Wheatley Hills. Long Island.
When asked about the claim made upon his
father and himself, he said it was too
ridiculous to be dignified by a denial.
"The man is a half-brother of my father."
he said. "Ke is a very brilliant man in
some respects, but he has been, and I dare
say he is again, insane. His story proves
itself absurd on the face of it. A civil engi
neer cannot be thrown into an insane asy
lum and kept there nine months in this coun
try. Neither can he be exiled against his
will. My father did pay him a pension for
some yeor& That part of the story i.s true
It is also true that he threatened my
father. His letters are still in existence. I
believe he was arrested at the time and
left the country, but it b ridiculous to say
that my father caused him to be kidnapped.
He perfected some inventions wh : !e he was
abroad, and he lived on the proceeds, as I
understand it.
"When I wrote him to perfect the deed
by which he had released his Kansas
property to me. I did not ask him to give
me anything, as he had already received
full consideration for the property. The
publicity is very unpleasant for us. but
the very fact that he has to advertise to
try to find a lawyer to take the suit shows
that there is no ground for such action.
Otherwise he would, ere this, have found
a lawyer who would have brought suit.
I do not core to discuss the matter at any
length, for I believe the unfortunate man
is not mentally responsible."
Mr. Ellis said neither he nor his father
had had any knowledge of the presence In
this country of Charles B. Ellis. Tbe
guardian of the.r city houaa, however,
said that a man answering the description
of the claimant had called two or three

An Actor "Come to This."
The seventh culprit was an actor, one of
the team of Dahm Brothers, acrobats. H«
told pathetically how he had once played
at Hammerstein's. and "now come to this."
His summer residence, was at the Ocean
Parkway Hotel, Coney Island, he said, and
he thought some of the "bunch over there 1 *
would bail him out. He had nothing but
the one-piece suit with him at the station.
Later his Sunday clothes were brought ■-,
him from 11 bathhouse and he put then:
on to make a proper appearar.c* before his
bondsman. Mr. Dahm was still languish
in? in prison at a late hour last night
The names which the bathers arrested
yesterday gave to the police were as tol

Captain Galvin had a squad of twenty
two uniformed men patrolling the Coney
Island beach yesterday looking for objec
tionables. They were earnest looking
bluecoats, with an eye to the sea and *
ready ear for what the wild waves rrAght
say. "Come on in. the water's fine," came
a voice from the edge of. the rising tid»
as Sheridan, of the beach brigade, started
to pursue a fleeing one-piec© suit. Thtn
the voice and the "decollette" sank hi th»
breakers simultaneously. Sheridan fal
tered on the edge of the ocean and al
lowed he would hang around until th»
swimmer swam ashore.
"Objectionables" Elude Police.
But Coney Island bathers are a loss
winded species and remain in the water
for hours at a time. For that reason
Sheridan's objectionable got away, and
undoubtedly many more like him, who
scattered off shore like so many pushcart
venders at the approach of the police.
The thousands on the teach seemed to en
joy the shore-to-sea conversation between
the officers and the bathers. An arrest
■was the occasion of a great demonstration
pro and con.
Most of the arrests yesterday were made
in Seaside Park, at the fast of West 5t5
street, where eight men were arrested oa
Saturday, the day on which the anti-one
piece-suit crusade began. Two or three
of the offenders were gathered in from ■
front of the bathing- pavilions near lbs
Bowery. Warned by the arrests on Sat
urday, many bathing house proprietor*
yesterday instructed their employes to
watch out for the questionable suits and
not allow them near the water. Mas!
would-be bathers in -he prohibited l-.abili
meats were approached by the bath house
men. it was said, and had either to rest
proper apparel or forego a bath.
The eight men arrested Saturday wen
arraigned before Magistrate Voorhtaj ia
the Coney Island court yesterday. At first
they all pleaded not guilty to the technical
charge of disorderly conduct made against
them. Then the magistrate reprimanded
the prisoners severely and said he intend*!
to hold them for trial in Special Sessions
in every case where the evidence war
ranted it. Three of the defendants hur
riedly changed their pleas to guilty M*
were fined $5 each. The others were re
manded on bail for a further examination
