Two .speeches in Elmira.
Mr. Roosevelt closed his first day's
part In the N*-w York campaign by ad
dressing two rousing meetings here to
nif*t. one in th« Lyceum Theatre and
the other in th*> Orpheum. At the
Lyreum. which holds about twenty five
hundred persons raid was packed almost
to suffocation, he «as introduced in %
peculiarly happy speech. Mr. Fassett
cordially indorsed Mr. Roosevelt and
the new nationalism, saying the ex-
Vresldent was a good old-fashioned con
pervative. one who believes in evolution
instead of revolution. Calling attention
to the fact that the stage was flanked
by large pictures of Lincoln, McKinley.
Taft ar.d Roosevelt, he referred to the
charges that Lincoln was a revolution
ist nnd the demands of business men
that the war be envied because It was
hurting business. At one point he said:
"Our Democrat ; - friends say, 'You lov
erp of Taft must smash Bocasevelt so
that you can elect Taft in 1912/ as it the
way to victory w.ms to surrender the
canal contracts, the utilities commis
sions and all the patronage to the Demo
crats. That anrument can have only
one basis, and that is two years* experi
ence, in which the Democrats would so
disgust the American people as to in
pure a victory for the Republicans two

Mr. Roosevelt began his ppeecti by an
appeal "on higher ground than partisan
ship and In the name of honor and In
the fair name of the Empire State." Ho
described the Saratoga convention in a.
manner which delighted, and its candi
date in terms which aroused his hear
ers. He described the Democratic con
vention at Rochester and repeated his
Elopan, "You are wanted in Room 212!
arousing the heartiest applause.
Speaking of Mr. Dix, he said: "I will
cheerfully acquit Mr. Dix of the charge
Of being an agent or destruction of any
thing frolng wrong."
High Tribute to Stimson.
He dwelt with much emphasis on the
alliance between Tammany Hall and
•Wall Street. He declared Wall Street
wanted the governor and tHey wanted
the Legislature because they need them
In their business. "They are business
men and they know Just what they
want." he said. "We ought to know
enough not to let them get either." He
assured his hearers that Stimson was
euch I man that no power on earth could
stop him from becoming an agent of de
struction to anything or anybody that
was going rone;.
"What man on earth can speak of
Wall Street and Tammany Hall and
rugged honesty in the. same breath with
out laughing?" declared Mr. Roosevelt
with vehemence, and he added that there
is no man who dares to stand up and
say "that 'Harry* Stimson is not the
embodiment of rugged honesty."
"Wall Street is for Tammany Hall be
cause it knows where its interest lies,
.-inrl it is against us l*x-ause we are
against special privilege." said Mr.
Uoowvelt. He declared that the Re
publican campaign would have to! be
carried on without much money, whereas
Tammany Ball would have a plethoric
fund In closing he declared that there
had never been a more open alliance be
tween ■ rooked business and crooked pol
itics than that of this year, and that if
the people of New York yielded to that
combination it would besmirch the hon
esty and the fair name of the state.
Begins Campaign at Dunkirk.
The Roosevelt train reached Dunkirk
et 11 n. m.. and the ex-President was
taken Immediately to the square, where
he ad<lress<"d a crowd of perhaps eighteen
hundred people, but composed largely of
women and children. The Baldwin

the Roosevelt meeting of the day had
been advertised as king place at

for i!he election of Mr. Stimson. and sflid
that the Republican party had dared to

their hopes were not unmixed with ap

He diecLared that the one name ! .\hlch

"Yes," he said, in answer to a ques
tion. "I suppose we are at liberty to pell
anything we want to, but I don't know.
There are no customers, anyway."
Acting Deputy Surveyor Edward Nor
wood, who led the raid on the store on
Thursday, was in charge of the build
ing yesterday, and wandered in and out
of the rooms with his men at his heels.
Corbitt & Stern, attorneys for the
Duveens. said they could make no state
ment about the case yet. as they had not
had a copy of the complaint and did not
know what the chart* 1 was.
No Market Price, Say Lawyers.
"Rut as far as und^rvaulation is con
cerned." they said, "there is no market
price for art objects. The only market
price is the price for which they
arc sold. If Duveen Brothers pakl
$1,100 for those three, vases, that was the
market price at that time. If they sold
them for $28,000, that was the market
price at that time."
Collector I-oeh said that thr art dealers
were at liberty to sell anything they hac!
except what was under government seal,
but when it came to the question of
the market price of art objects he dis
agreed with Corbitt & Stern.
"We believe," h<> said, "that the books
of the firm will show that the invoice
that valued those vases at $I,l<lO was a
false invoice, "We believe that the books

much higher price than ?],IOO for those
"But. at any rate, the price paid is
not essential. It is only a guide for the
appraisers. Duveen Brothers might by
peculiar circumstances be able to buy
articles at less than their market value
and the law provides that the duty shall
be assessed on the market value and
that the importer shall declare his im
portations at their market value."
Criminal and Civil Actions.
Solicitor Andrews said yesterday that
three actions would be brought against
Duveen Brothers, one a criminal pro
ceeding alleging a conspiracy to defraud
the government and two civil actions.
One of the civil actions would be for the
forefeiture of goods s for undervaluation
i.nd the other would be to recover duties
and penalties on such things as had gone
cut of their possession and might be
found to be undervalued, according to
The statute of limitations applies to
undervaluation, the solicitor said, and
forfeiture of goods can be had for only
three years preceding the beginning of
the action. But the collection of duties
is unlimited and prosecution may be
started to cover any number of years.
The government now has the Duveen
Brothers' books for six or seven years,
but hopes to make the investigation
cover the whole thirty years the firm
has been in business here.
James Jarman, secretary of Duveen
Brothers, was a witness before the srand
jury yesterday afternoon, and was after
ward placed under arrest on the same
warrant as was used for the Duveens,
but on the application of Assistant
United States Attorney Wemple was dis
charged by Commissioner Shields for
lack of evidence.
It is understood that the person who
grave the information that led to the
arrest of the Duveens is in a fair way to
collect a large reward from the govern
ment. The government's evidence is un
derstood to be documentary and to have
come very direct.
"It may be that our informant will re
ceive the reward given by the govern
ment to persons who furnish informa
tion leading to the conviction of per
sons who defraud the government," said
Air. Loeb yesterday.
The amount of the reward is left to the
judgment of the Secretary of the Treas

of the fines imposed after conviction.

BROOKLYN GREETS STIMSON
Fills Academy of Music to Capac
ity to Hear Him.
Henry L. Stimson carried with him an
audience that filled the Academy of Music,
in Brooklyn, last night, when he drove
home one after another telling arguments
against the Issues pet forth in the speech
of acceptance of John A Dlx, his opponent.
"I'm goitjpr to ask all over this utatp."
said Mr. Stimson. "what stand does Mr.
Dlx take on the Public Service commissions

as a candidate for Lieutenant Governor,
which called practically for the repeal of

"How much faith can you have In a man
who condemns the tariff, when his own

The big audience took tills Hat challenge

speech made by Mr. Dix in accepting
his nomination, and proceeded to com
pare the latter's profeAions with his
practice. Referring to his opponent's
promise to "turn the searchlight on and
drive the 'black horse cavalry" out of
busings." Mr. Stimson called attention
to the renomination of Senator Grady,
the leader of his party at Albany.
Departing from this topic with a refer
ence to Grady's defence of Allds, Mr.
Stimson switched to the professions of
Mr. Dix regarding the tariff, and con
Again. Mr. Dixs speech contained an elo
quent paragraph on the tariff. Now the
tariff is not a state issue, and I should be
willing to concede that Mr. Dtx. as Gov
ernor, would have no occasion to put his
professions into practice: but. having mane
them, the people of the Ptate have a right
to judge him by their sincerity. He says,
with great emphasis: m _.
"I believe that, in order to do away with
the high cost of living from which all or
the people of the country now greatly suf
fer, the governing power must be in the
hands of the Democratic party, that we
may have an honest, downward revision or
the present Iniquitous tariff. Such a re
vision will restore a situation where the
average man will be able to save some
thing from his income after he has paid lor
the bare necessities of life."
Shows True Attitude of Dix.
How long ha.=» Mr. Dlx held these virtu
ous sentiments? As his friends are fond
of telling us, he is a business man. a paper
manufacturer in Washington County. He
Is the president of the Iroquois Pulp and
Paper Company and a director in the
Standard Wall Paper Company, both of
them situated in Washington County. His
friend and business partner, W. A. Hup
puch. is the vice-president of both these
companies. Mr. Huppuch. on Mr. Dix
resignation, became the chairman of the
Democratic State Committee.
Now in November, IMS. when the revision
of* the tariff was under consideration by the
Ways and Means Committee of the House
of Representatives, this Standard Wall
Paper Company took a position on the
question of tariff reduction which the peo
ple of the state are likely to be interest-
There was an existing tariff of 25 per
cent ad valorem on wall paper— its product.
The Ways and Means Committee, as our
Democratic friends now insist, was under
pledge to revise this tariff downward on
the demand of the- American people. They
were having hearings for the purpose in
Washington. Did Mr. Dix or Mr. Huppuch
then insist that they should lower this
duty? No; their company, the Standard
Wall Paper Company, wrote a letter on
November 11. 1908. to the chairman of the
Ways and Means Committee asking that
this' duty on wall paper should be raised,
and they joined in a concerted effort of the
wall paper manufacturers to have the duty
of 25 per cent raised to a minimum of 35
percent and a maximum of 45 per cent.
The company's letter is signed by Mr. Hup
puch himself. The letter is to be. found on
page 6.253. Volume VI. Tariff Hearings by

Mr. Btimson dismissed the tariff as a
