Ceo said It wns a cinch, and not to
.worry, but to go to sleep.'
Uaatcrday tlien told how ho. had asked
Fnllon If any of Arneteln'a loot had any
connection with tho murder of Bennlo
Blnkowltz, tho messenger whoso muti
lated body was found near Bridgeport,
Conn., shortly nftcr his disappearance
from this city with J 178,000 worth of
Liberty bonds.
"Fnllon said, 'No. Indeed; I have, told
Arnsteln not to daro to MueJt any of
thnt stock."' Kasterday testified.
"How did you come to wins up tho
Blnkowltz murder?" ho was asked.
"Well," nnsivcred Eaatcrday, "I
thought that Mr. Doolinff would like to
use that ns a hammer for somebody's
head, und put them In jail without bond.
The thine that worried me was that I
might bo grabbed without bond."
From eworn testimony of Norman S.
Bowles, which was also made publlo
yesterday, It appears that ho was asked
by Mr. Myers: "Didn't you' know that
Arnsteln and Cohen were connected up
with tho Blnkowltz murder? Didn't
you know that was all ono transac
tion?" Bowles answered, "No, did not."
Ho said that Mr. Fallon In discussing
the Blnkowltz murder with him said: "I
saw that boy nnd ho was horribly man-'
gltd nnd cut up, and I would not have
nnythlnn to do with any bonds that had
originated or come through or were
connected up with that matter In any
way, shapa or form."

He had spoken with Fallon, he said,
bo.ut "Cheeks" or "Itoughy" Ginsberg,
the Cleveland gambler, who wns dis
covered In an effort to dispose of $50,
000 worth of bonds that tho Blnkowltz
boy had stolen. He said ho got tlio Im
pression that Ginsberg had obtained
them from a Cleveland lawyer or that
tho lawyer whs "protecting him in the
possession of them."
Records of a Joint examination of
Sullivan and Bowles In the office of As
sistant District Attorney John T. Doollng
contain tlitlr explanation of how their
firm got into Its Illegitimate business.
Bowles testified that ho spent hi" time
In tho Washington otllce, while .Su.ilvan.
under liasterday's supervision, ran the
office at 10 Wall street. He nald it was
-iot until the concern liad been close''
town that ho learned tho New York
branch had been receiving stolen stocks.
Both he and Sullivan blamed It all on
Easterckiy's "fairy dreams" ; his reck
lessness In tho stock market, aud his
belief that some day by a wild plunge
he could clean up M vast fortune.
"Easterday Is a kid, even If he Is 29
or SO years old," Sullivan told Mr.
Doollng. "He is a boy. He will lie
about things that really don't amount to
anything. That Is the reason I never
had any faith in him In the business.
He had a bad heart."
He said that nearly all of the proceeds
of the stolen stocks were lost by Raster
day In the market. "When he did not
lose tho money he spent It, nnd he would
llo about everything," Sullivan said.
It was In the course of this examina
tion that Sullivan gave his own estimate
Of the two "NIcklcs."
"Irrespectlvo of the fact that you
think you. want, Arnsteln," he said,
"Cohen is the man you want. And,
irrespective of the fact that Arnsteln
to a high class fellow thnt Is, intelli
gent nnd has the brains' to put the
thing through Cohen Is a more com
mon sense, hard headed fellow than
Arnsteln.
"Cohen Is the ''master mind' If there
Is any."
Illustrate that Arnsteln was Co
hen's suoordlnate. Sullivan told of a
quarrel that lie had with the pair In
Jersey City which nearly resulted in
blows.
He had gone there by appointment to
get some securities, he said, and he
found that Cohen wonted cash for
them. Ho did not have It and told
him that it wauld be Impossible to
raise the sum, whereupon Cohen be
came enraged and was on the point
f attacking him.
Apparently, he said. Arnsteln had
nothing to say In the matter, as Cohen
did all of the talking.
On another occasion, he testified,
Arnsteln said to him: "This Is Cohen's
business, not mine. I am helping him."

believe It would be advantageous to"
them to have their convention aomo

MeAdpo Is being forced to the front In
tho Presidential race as-tho most likely
champion of the Wilson policies, nccord-
Ing to tho view of politicians who to
day studied the results ot tno lexas
primaries on Saturday.
Although Sir, McAdoo has stated re-
peatcdlr that he Is not a candidate for
the nomination and although the forty
Texas delegates have not been instructed
tor anybody, tho significant fact Is that
lormcr Senator Joseph V. Bailey lost
his spectacular fight for control- of the
delegation on an antl-Wllson platform
to former Asslstan Secretary of the
Treasury Thomas H. Love, who Is not
only a firm Administration supporter
but Is one of the strongest McAdoo-for-
Preslden', toomers In the country.
The VT'.a House received a telegram
from Mf. .Vivo to-day announcing tho
defeat of the Bailey faction and con
gratulating the President on the victory
for his policies, foreign and domestic.
which Mr. Bailey hnd made the chief
Issue In tho campaign.
It seems certain that the ulx Tcxns
delegation will be for McAdoo's nomina
tion through thick and thin at San Fran
cisco. Just as It stood like a rock, for
the nomination of Woodrow Wilson In
tho memorable fight between Mr. Wilson
ttnd Champ Clark at the Baltimore con
vention In 1912.
Trend Is Toward McAdoo.
President Wilson Is not expected to
make any personal announcement In
favor of any camUdato for the Demo
cratic nomination, but there was undis
guised satisfaction at the white Houso
over tho result In Texas. Tho Impres
sion is growing that tho friends of the
President have decided at last Ir Indeed
hey had not bcen'declded long ago that
Mr. McAdoo rather than Attorncy-Clen-crnl
Palmer Is best qualified to carry the
bunncr of the Wilson policies Into the
campaign.
There arc some very good reasons
some of them confidential for believing
at this time that almost all tho Presi
dent's closest friends and advisers will
be In favor ot Mr. McAdoo's nomination t
when the convention meets.
The McAdoo Presidential stock Is
rising every day. The very fact that he
is not avowedly making any effort to
get delegates seems to be helping him.
Prom all se;tlons of the country -reports
are reaching Washington that he is the
first choice of unlnstructed delegates
and the second choice of Instructed dele
gates. Ho has many boomers in Wash
ington, who, however. Insist therejs no
organized movement In his behalf, tind
stand, ready to prove It. These men have
been erowine noticeably mote cheerful
and confident within the last few days-
Mr. McAdoo's friends say ho was
strengthened In the Onlo primaries last
week by what appears to be the ellmlna.
tlon of Senator Harding (Ohio) from
the Republican Presidential race. The
reasoning Is not quite so clear cut as in
the developments In Texas, but It Is
there Just the same. The fact that the
poor showing made by Senator Harding
virtually puts him out ot the Republican
contest H somewhat of a blow to the
boom of Gov. James M. Cox (Ohio),
who would have been stronger at San
Kranclsco had Senator Harding been
able to capture the nomination M Chi
cago, the reason being that the two
Ohio "favorite sons" would bo played
one against the other In their homo
.State, which Is one of those almost es
tcntial States In the olectlon. With
Senator Harding out of the way this
particular vantage point 011 the part 'of
the' Cox boomers vanirhes. It is figured,
for tho bemiflt ot Mr. McAdco.
At this time It looks asjlt the Demo
cratic contest Is between Mr. McAdco
and Gov. Cox, dependent, of course, on
the everlasting question whether Presi
dent Wilson will seek a third term,
which seems moat unlikely to those mo.it
conversant with the situation. The
boom of Attorney-General Palmer ap
parently is blocked.
In the case of Senator Hitchcock
(Neb.) there has been nothing except a
favorite son showing, and the disposi
tion to avoid the prohibition question Is
regarded as having called a halt to tho
boom of Gov. Edwards (N. J.), who,
by the way, never has been classed is a
real .contender for the nomination him
self, the theory being that through his
pronourcement for beer and wine he
represented a policy and nothing more.
The McAdoo followers In Washing
ton ara trying to engineer things so that
Mr. McAdoo can have a walkaway with
the nomination, making delicate over
tures to those who are behind Gov. Cox
In the hope of attaining an understand
ing whereby In tho final analysis the
Cox strength can be thrown to Mr. Mc
Adoo. In return for which Mr. Cox
would receive the Vice Presidential
nomination. As an alternative they are
talking about Secretary of Agriculture
Meredith as a Vice Presidential possi
bility to run with Mr. McAdoo on the
JOHNSON WON'J PAY
ANY RECOUNT COST
Rejects Wood Men's Offer to
Give Half of $50,000,
One of Hiram Johnson's campaign
managers said yesterday that It wouldn't
be worth the Senator's time, nor would
It prove anything of, value, to spend ono
lonely dollar for a recount of tho vote
In the New Jersey primaries. Frrfm the
Senator himself. In Indianapolis, (lit.
local Johnson headquarters received
word that these sentiments were the
Senator's, for thero Is to be no recount
unless some means can be devised to
that end that will not entail the ex
penditure of money.
The Johnson managers say that It Is
jwrfcctly easy for the Wood backers to
offer to. put up half ot the J50.000 the
cfurt stipulated ns the bond necessary to
tho inauguration of n recount, because.
according1 to Al C. Joy, Senator John
sons assistant New York manager, the
Wood forces spent 581,000 to capture
seventeen of the New Jersey delegates,
while Senator Johnson got tho other
eleven for virtually nothing. Mr. Jo
Insists thnt 581,000 is all that tho John
sun campaign has received thus far, ana
that most of it has come in very small
contributions. " ,
Over In tho Wood headquarters It was
said that the Johnson profession of pov
erty is all bosh ; that nine California men
possessing a comblled wealth ot more
than 5150.000.000 are backing Johnson.
Gen. Wood will arrive in Now York to
night. .Frank Hitchcock Is already here,
and It Is expected that William G. Proc
ter will accompany the General.
The General expects to do no speaking
here, but 'will enter upon what are de
scribed as most Important conferences
with Messrs, Hitchcock and Procter.
The Wood managers Insist that peace
abides within their organization.

Indianapolis, May 3. Tno inatana

tres on the Republican ballots because
of the hot raco nmon-j the Presidential
and Gubernatorial candidates, nnd all
Indications point to an unusually largo
vote to-morrow. Tho absence of a spir
ited contest among"tne Democrats leads
to the belief mat tnai party win puu "

Tho eves of the nat on are watcning-
for the Indiana result, because of the
bcarlnir It will have on tho Presiden

Three Presidential contestants, Sens-
tor Warren G. Harding, Senator Hiram

Wood, kept up their drives until, the
last minute to-nlslit. while the fourth

Senator Johnson fired his final shot

rowds at Lafayette thl3 morning and
Wabash in the afternoon. Gen. Wood
ended his campaign at Anderson, after
having addressed n monster mass meet
lug at Tomllnson Hall in Indianapolis
this noon. The General also spoke to
big crowds at Seymour, Richmond and
Muncle during the day.
None ot the Presidential campaign
managers would make definite predic
tions on the outcome, with the excep
tion of Harry G. Hogan. Gen. Wood't
manager. Mr. Hognn declared that on
the basis of estimates received from all
rarts of the Slato ho believed the Gen
eral's plurality would bo around 20,000.
The four Presidential candidates have
conducted strenuous campaigns in the

They have been supported by smoothly
