an agreement to makn war,
"It would be Jut an mtlonnl to claim

Col, l'arkhurst Is president of the J,
V. rarkhurst Son Company, which
manufacturer trunk nnd leather goods
and whlrh had large Government con
tracts during the war lor artillery har
ness, bridles nnd pistol holsters, The
effort which has boon made by Demo
crats politicians to makn political capi
tal out of theso contracts haa aroused
considerable resentment throughout thu
Slate, and the net result has not boon
hopeful for W. It. l'nttangall, tho asttrte
former Htnto Attorney (tonernl, who Is
managing the Democratic campaign.
After tho urmlstlco the l'arkhurst
company surrendered Its legal rights
iiiidtr the contracts In exactly the same
way that thousands of other concerns
did, In consideration of this surrender
the War Department offered n aetiie
mcnt purporting to compensate the t'ark
hurst company for Its direct loss nnd
to provide for any liabilities the com
pany might have with firms from which
It had In turn ordered goods,
Allen k Hons, who were subcontrac
tors, claimed of the l'arkhurst company
some 12,000 moro than the Government
had allowed on account of this particu
lar liability. Offsetting this wom a larger
claim against the Allen concern pre
untiled hv Col. Parkhurst's company.
The questions Involved nffect the two
companies nlofte, und a ruling to thin
effect was miidu by the legal udvljer to
the Wot' Department last March nnd
confirmed by Secretary rtuktr. The
matter waa then dismissed, no far ns
the Government was concerned,
It Is charged hero that the civil suit
against the l'arkhurst company later
Instituted by the Department of Justice
was brought .for political purposes at
Mr. Pattangatl's behest and In nn en

haft made In his capacity as a Demo
