NUW YORK, April 7 A new hint of
blaokmatt blackmail "before tho fact"
crept Into tho Peck murder case yesterday
with the revelation that the District At
torney had been unable to trace several
substantial amounts of money handled by
Dr. Arthur Warren Walto within tho last
few months preceding the poisoning of
the dentist's father-in-law nnd mother-in-law.
Investigation of this phase, It Is hoped
by some In the prosecutor's offlce, may
round the State's case Into ideal shape
for presentation to a Jury. For, although
Doctor Walts has confessed the murders
and on several oocaslons has reiterates his
confession, there still Is a weak spot In
the chain of evidence at ths point where
motive should link In.
Eugeno Oliver Kane, to whom Doctor
Walto said ha gave $9000 and promised
$25,000 as "hush monoy" on Kane's agree
ment to testify that ho used arsenla tn em
balming the body of John E. Peck, Walta's
father-in-law, will bo summoned to tha
District Attorney's office today and asked
to explain why Doctor Walto Bhould havo
written tho following letter to his brokers,
Spauldlng, McLellan & Co., of 74 Broad
way: "Dear Mr. Spauldlng:
"I want you to do ma n favor. I send
check for $1086 and a draft for $7308,
Will you please pay these In to your
account and sell sufficient stock (say, New
Tork Central) to bring tho account up to
$16,000, and mako a check out for that
amount ($16,000), paynble to Eugene O.
Kane, nnd mall said check to ms Immedi
ately? "You might put this letter away, so no
one else can refer to It I and, of oourse, t
depend on you to favor me with the utmost
discretion at all times and to all questions.
van you do this for me 7
"A. W. WAITE."
What Assistant District Attorney John
T. Doollng considers one of the most slg.
nlflcnnt features of tho letter Is that It was
dated and mailed on March 20, 1916, tho
day on which Doctor Walte said he gave
Kane $9000 nnd on which Kano has ad
mitted he received $7800. Furthermore,
within n few hours after he had mailed
the letter Doctor Walte telephoned to Mr.
Spauldlng and told him not to make out
tho check for $16,000 to Kane, but to hold
tho money nnd await further Instructions.

Concerning Final Drive in
White Motor Trucks
IN VIEW of the conflicting claims for this form and that form
of final drive which now confront the purchaser of heavy duty
trucks, this Company, as the largest manufacturer of motor trucks
in America, deems it fitting to make a public statement of its own
purpose and practice in the matter.
White Trucks of over two tons capacity have always been chain
driven, and will continue to be chain-driven until some other form of
final drive is developed in the future which is more efficient or equally
efficient. In its present stage of development, worm drive will not be
adopted by this Company, and White engineers now see no prospect
of its basic handicaps ever being sufficiently overcome to warrant
CHAIN DRIVE EFFICIENCY
1. White chain-driven trucks are more
efficient because moye power" is delivered
to the rear wheels.
2. They require a smaller motor for equal
3. They consume less gasoline, getting as
high as 50 more mileage per gallon.
4. They endure a higher road speed;
perform more easily on rough roads, steep
grades, and in heavy going.
5. They pull loads out of chuck holes
and over obstructions which yould stall a
6. Tire mileage is materially greater be
cause the unsprung weight on the wheels
is so much less.
WHITE TRUCK PERFORMANCE
Motor trucks have been in use long
enough to accumulate a volume of motor
truck experience, long enough for owners
to know actual operating value. They can
compare one truck with another. They
have the records of performance; and large
users who keep the most effective cost re
cords indicate the showing of those records
by an overwhelming preference for White
That preference is well known. It is
eloquently reflected in the fact that in
total annual sales White Trucks predomi
nate two to one of any other make, and
among many large users they predominate
ten to one.
WHITE TRUCK PREDOMINANCE
When a truck both outsells any 'competi
tor two to one and commands a higher
price its competition is severely felt by
trucks of similar design, so severely in fact,
as to necessitate a change in that design to
escape the brunt of parallel competition.
This gives rise to new theories of con
struction, which are adopted to arouse
fresh interest rather than to improve the
truck, in the endeavor to divert attention
from White performance.
At this late stage of motor truck experience
there is no need of truck buyers being
bewildered by fads and theories. Over
and above the conflict of all theory looms
the solid fact of White Truck performance
longer life, more days in service, lower
eventual cost, as attested by comparative
cost records of numerous large users and
by the fact that such users purchase more
White Trucks every year than trucks of
any other make. '
