the Philadelphia woman whose letters to
MacFarland were the chief evidence of
the pro.secittion when he was convicted

from the Quaker City Into Camden so
that sho could be served with a suhxcnu

Kis Backer Is Hiirtinp;
His Chances.
CMinirman Says His Corporation
Connections Were Dis
counted Loiir Ago. '
A vnrn to tho Affect that Col. Roosevelt
' hurting his chances was passed among
political gossips yesterday. It was said
that even now the Colonel is revolving In
his mind methods of gently suppressing
.nr. i-erKins witnout nurtuiR auyoouy s
The report being carried to Mr. Perkins
ne sain mat nettner directly nor indirectly
had any such Intimation come from Col.
Koosevelt. Furthermore Mr. Perkins did
not believe that his activltv was ImrHna
tho candidato or the Progressive cause
or mat wi. noosevelt tnougnt so.
ine story siartoa yscterday with a
man who has long been zealous for (.'ol.
Koosevelt and who is now on the stump
for him. What he said to a friend is
reported to be substantially this:
Until Col. Koosevelt set forth on his
latest Western trip he believed that he
had a very good chance of elo ction. Hut
wnnt ne nas neard in Michigan, Wis
consin, Illinois, Minnesota and other mid
dle Western States that ho has visited
has made him change his mind.
He has been told by many voters that
Mr. Perkins, with his Harvester and Steel
Corporation afliliations, with his frequent
ventures into publicity as chairman of
the executive committee of tho Pro
gressive party, is a serious obstacle to
Progressive victory.
Democratic speakers everywhere have
played up Mr. Perkins's militancy in the
Progressive camp as a first class argu
ment against the Progressive ticket.
Col. Roosevelt, so tho story goes, didn't
mind that, for he believes in Mr. Perkins,
but when his own leaders flocked to him
with remonstancm and solemn prophecies
and told him the West was fidgety lie
causo of Mr. Perkins the Colonel was
deeply concerned.
It is not alleged that the Colonel has
in any way wavered in his own faith in
his chief supporter, but it is part of the
yarn that he is trying to hit on somo
tactful wuy of Retting Mr. Perkins Into
the backRround for the sake of the arty.
Mr. Perkins, after statltiR yesterday
that he had no such word from Col. Koose
velt, added that ho did not see how he
could be hurting the Progressives, inas
much as every tiossible criticism of him
had been voiced some time ago without
effect. He mid that the so-called harves
ter trust correspondence, in which I'resi
dent Koosevelt asked Commissioner of
Corporations Herbert Knox Smith not
to prosecute tho Harvester company
until he had heard from the President,
was made public on the eve of the Massa
chusetts primary last spring, yet Col.
Roosevelt carried the State the next day.
Mr. Perkins also recalled that he was
attacked by President Taft in Bevcral
speeches before tho Now Jersey primary
without result.
It becamo known yesterday that when
tho Progressive National Committee,
meeting in Chicago in August. proosed
to make Mr. Perkins chairman of the
executive committee he got up and talked
verv frankly. He said he was fullv aware
of how he had been attacked twvius
of his alleged corporation connections
and he asked the committee not to appoint
him if there was any doubt about him
as a campaign asset. The committee
shouted "No, no," and Mr. Perkins got
tho job,
"I have read reports of manv recent
Progressive meetings," Mr. Perkins said
yesterday, "in which somebody shouted
from the floor, 'How about Perkins?'
In everv case the audience indicated that
it was not in sympathy with the interrup
t'ltilabra Week of Campnliinlnar
Oswkoo, Oct. 12. An audience of oOO
persons greeted Oscar S. Straus, Pro
gressive candidate for Governor, at a
meeting held to-night in the Hippodrome
Theatre. Tho audience was friendly and
frequently Interrupted thecandidate with
remarks of approval. Mr. Strauss said
Columbus was a man with a vilon, just
as Theodore Roosevelt is to-day a man
with a vision for the uplift and advance
ment of humanity. Referring to an article
In a local paper that certuin labor leaders
would attack him in a meeting here to

.Man Suspected of Robbery and
.Murder Terplcxes All by
Post Office Inspectors James Hnd
Jacobs brought before United States Com
missioner Shiolds in the Federal District
Court yesterday a slender, dark eyed
man of demeanor so quiet as to approach
diffidence. Those in the court room stare I
at the trim stranger In perplexity, for
they were awaiting the arraignment of
James F. Kelley, alias James Smith, alias
John Williams, alias Hoston Jimmle, a
notorious yeggmsn wanted for the rob
bery of the post office at North Abingdon,
Mass., and susiwcted of tho murder of
Sheriff K. J. Velio or Richmondville,
Schoharie county, N. Y.
The hearing did not last long. Com
missioner Shields, having recovered from
his evident surprise, put a few iierfnnctorv
questions to the prisoner, who answered
in a voice that might have passed muster
in a drawing room. He was marched off
to tho Tombs, as there was no one pn-sent
willing to furnish the necessary bail bond
of $5,000.
Kelley together with two of his pals,
Thomas O'Gorman ond Walter Hnilev
alias Hoston Johnny, were arrested by
acting ('apt. Charles II. McKinney or the
detective bureau and several post office
inspectors on i wenty-seventn street near
Eighth avenue. Friday night.
The post office authorities are positive
that Kellev is the leader of a iranir nf niui
office thieves that havo Iwen operating
successfully for the last ten yearn. They
also say that he was in command of tho
group of yeRgmen that visited Richmond-
vine, hciiotiarie county, on the night of
Septemlier 7 hist for the nurnose of loot
ing the bank there. For some reason
tneir plans miscarried and they turned
their attention to the local post ofllco.
After blowing the safe they headed for
the railway station and on the road met
Sheriff Veilo und another man.
It is thought that tho yeggmen must
have caught the Hash of Veile's liadge
for they oencd fire without warning.
Velio dropped with a. bullet through his
stomach and died next day.
Magistrate Harlow in the Jefferson
Market court, to which the prisoners
were first taken from Headquarters yes
terday morning, held John Dailey with
out bail for a week as a fugitive from
justice and turned Kellev over to the

. You are now losing from 40 to 80 of your fuei
value in overcoming friction, the amount of your loss
depending on the viscosity of the oil you are using as
a lubricant.
When it is shown this loss can be avoided, it becomes a
waste. If you use OILDAG as your lubricant you can reduce this loss
from 25 to 5C and at the same time lessen the wear, which mears
reduced cost of maintenance.
Our claim is based on the fact that OILDAG is a lubricant that
contains colloidal graphite. This graphite reduces the viscosity of the
oil with which it is mixed and actually lubricates tho lubricant to
