Mj&tropolitan_ Life's Policyholders
Contributed to Republican
ML^ Campaign Fund.
New York, Nov. 11.Closing the ses
sions of the week the Armstrong com
mittee of insurance investigation hasi in
its possession a mass of details and fig
ures which, while of apparent little
interest to the laity, is of inestimable
value to the committee.
The greater part of the week has
been devoted to the Metropolitan Life
Ins\uance company, the examinations
of President Hegeman and James M.
Craig, the actuary of the company, be
ing of a mos# technical nature. When
adjournment v*a& taken late yesterday
the committee had not finished the ex
amination of Mr. Hegeman and he will
be called again next week.
Campaign Funds.
President Hegeman said that his com
pany had made two campaign contri
butions, and they were in 1896, when
$1,000 was given to the Palmer and
Buckner gold democrat managers, and
$7,500 to the republican national com
mittee. These contributions were made,
he said, with the approval of the
finance board and were more a moral
than a political move to assist in de
feating the "16 to 1 heresy."
Mr. Hegeman testified that the Met
ropolitan company had paid monev to
Andrew Hamilton, "legislative agent."
A statement was produced showing that
Hamilton had received from 1892 to
1904, for services, the sum of $35,295.
Hamilton worked" in a number of
states and his duties were similar to
those he pursued for the other insur
ance companies.
A statement was produced showing
that Andrew Hamilton had been under
annual retainer of $1,000 from May 13,
1892, and from that date to May 5,
1904, had received for special services
and retainers the aggregate sum of
$35,295. No other peisons were paid
for anv work in connection Mith mat
ters of litigation beside Hamilton and
those he retained, said Mr. Hegeman.
Writer fof Mutual Life.
Just before the h.our of adjournment
Mr. Hegeman was excused and Joseph
Howard, Jr., a writer who has been em
ployed by the Mutual Life, was called
io the stand. He identified vouchers
that he had signed for money received
for writing advertisements and read
ing notices for the Mutual Life.
Mr. Howard afforded much amuse
ment by his declaration that his only
regret was that he could not sign more
of these vouchers. His only complaint
was that he was not paid enough ffrr
his work. This, too, was the complaint
on the witness stand of Charles Smith,
Who also does writing for the Mutual
Life and receives $8,000 a year for it.

Scarborough rendered his verdict in
the Pierson case today. He finds that
the testimony established that Pierson
had been bound or tied at the wrists
and at the ankles, and that he was
bound fast to the railroad tracks or
ties in such a manner that he could not
extricate himself from his perilous posi
tion. While so tied he was run over by
an engine which struck him while lying
flat between the rails of the main track
of the railroad bridge, and in that
manner he met his death.
The coroner also states in his verdict
that under the present circumstances of
the case it is impossible for him to d(

Early Report on Smoot.
It is believed to be the purpose of
the senate committee on elections, Sen
ator Burrows of Michigan chairman, to
make an early report on the Smoot case.
The inquiry "into this case has now oc
cupied about two yeais, and has been
very exhaustive. Senator Burrows is
said to have devoted himself during
practically all of the summer to a study
of the testimony and the preparation of
a rough draft of the committee's report,
which suggests that the committee,
even prior to the adjournment of con
gress, last March, knew pretty well
what it was going to do. No guess is
being made here as to which way the
committee will decide. In Michigan,
however, there is a feeling that the
decision will be against Smoot. A two
thirds majority of the senate will be re
quired in support of that decision be
fore Smoot can be unseated.
During the summer many bulky peti
tions have reached Washington bearing
on the Smoot case. Nearly all of these
have come from the good women of the
W. C. T. U. and kindred bodies. One
monster petition, carrying 2,000,000
names, is said to be in course of com
pletion for dispatch to the capitol.
These petitions, of course, are not go
ing to influence the senate in its action.
The question at issue is purely one of
fact, with which the country at large,
which did not sit in on the hearings, or
read the reports of them, cannot possi
bly be familiar. No polygamy was
traced home to Smoot, but it was es
tablished that he had knowledge that
polygamous relations were being main
tained by certain influential members
of the church, and that he continued to
associate with these people, and took no
steps to bring them to justice. His
own private life seems to be as clean
as that of any other liigh-grade Ameri
can citizen.
Things Get Hot for the Senate.
The senate has been under a pretty
hot fire for several years past, and out
of numerous indictments of its mem
bers for various, crimes against the laws
of the land, one member has at last
been sentenced to the penitentiary. In
dictments of another member are still
pending on appeal following conviction.
In addition to the disgrace attending
such a state of affairs and a widespread
lack of public confidence in the senate's
patriotism, that body has come in for a
good deal of sharp criticism in the
widely read Lawson articles, in the last
of which it is alleged that Senator
Clark of Montana was shown a signed
list of names of senators, forming a
majority of that body, who were friend
ly to Standard Oil, and that this list in
duced him to ally himself with the
.Rockefeller interests. Some temporary
offset to this general onslaught of crit
icism might possibly be secured if the
senate, becoming suddenly goody-goody
were, compliance with the W. C.
[J. demand, to expel Smoot. Some of
brnoot's friends profess to fear such a
thing may happen, but they are prob
ably insincere in taking suchbeing a position

Haugh of Dayton Accused of
Wholesale Murders Like Those
of Chicago Slayer.^ f'
Journal Special Servioe.
Dayton, Ohio, Nov. 11.Holmes, the
arch-murderer of Chicago, who a few
years ago startled the entire country
with his awful crimes, may have sot the
example for Dr. Oliver Haugh of this
city, who is now confined in the county
lail on the suspicion of having mur
dered his father, mother and brother
and then burned the house in an ef
fort to destroy all evidence of his
Holmes was a physician, as was
Haugh, altho the former was not a prac
titioner. Haugh also, as was the case
with his predecessor in crime, is ac
cused of using his scientific knowledge
in the extermination of his family and
several women with whom lie lived.
The developments indicate that in
addition to murdering his parents and
brother at their home near Chambers
burg, north of this city, last Sunday,
he was also responsible for the death
of at least two, and probably three
other persons. Two of the supposed
victims were women with whom kho
lived, and if reports are to be relied on,
he as married to both, even while he
was living with his present wife, who
now lives this city. So, in addition
to being an accused murderer, with
which crime he now stands charged, he
was also a bigamist.
Haugh was arraigned before Magis
trate Holderman yesterday on three
charges of murder in the first degree.
He pleaded not guilty to each of the
charges thru his attorney, Harry Nolan,
and waiving examination, was bound
over to the grand jury without bond.
The formal indictment charges Haugh
with administering a poisonous drug,
hyocine-hydro nitrate, with intent to
kill and murder. During the proceed
ings attending his arraignment, Haugh
frequently interrupted with appeals for

Prairie du Chien, Wis., Nov. 11.
Agnes Pfifer, an orphan, 16 years of
age, was kidnapped from the Ryder
school grounds at recess in the town
of Wauzeka, and it is believed is be

Two men seized the girl from among
a crowd of children* at play, forced her'
into a closed carriage, and drove away
at a gallop.
The school teacher saw the affair,
but did not report" it to the authorities
until yesterday, when she dismissed
her pupils for the day.
The girl is heir to considerable prop

she will be held for ransom. A vigor

Washington, Nov. 11.The follow
ing cablegram was received here today
from Kobe, Japan, jf a member of the
local Russian revolutionary committee:

The explanation of this cablegram
given by the local committee here^ is
that a remarkable peaceful revolution
has been accomplished under conditions
never before paralleled.
In 1901 Dr. Nicholas Russell, a Rus
sian by birth but a resident of Hawaii,
was president of the first territorial
senate. Coming to America, he became

Police on a Serious Charge.

dence enough to enable the grand jury
to indict this man. If an indictment is
found and the man arrested, a great
sensation will be caused.
The Tammariy men indicted by the
grand jury for election frauds and as
saults, it is said, are election district
captains in the eighteenth, sixth, ninth,
fourteenth, thirty-second, thirty-third
and thirty-fifth assembly districts.
The leaders of some of these districts
are Charles F. Murphy, Timothy D.
Sullivan, Thomas Prendergast and John
Hearst I Bitter.
William R. Hearst says evidence has
been collected against twelve Tammany
district leaders. Two or three of them,
Mr. Hearst believes cannot escape im-
risonment on the evidence obtained.
Hearst talked bitterly about his
defeat, and said that, before he got
thru he would shake Tammany hall
from top to bottom.
"There is no doubt whatever." sa id
Mr. Hearst, "but tfiat I will be able
to bring these election frauds home to
high Tammany officials. I am getting
plenty of evidence every day, and nu
merous affidavits come in every mail,
from foes as well as friends. If 1
had had a fair chance there is no doubt
but that my plurality would have been
fully 60,000. I know for a fact that
8,139 ballots which were marked in
the circles over mine and Jerome's
names were not counted. The condi
tions in this city now are every bit
as bad as in Tweed's time."
Boss Murphy Responsible.
"Do you expect to bring Murphy
himself to the barf" Mr. Hearst was
He thought for some time and re
plied: "Well, I don't know that
would be saying too much, perhaps,
but there is absolutely no doubt but
that Murphy is responsible for the
present conditions which make an elec
tion a farce.
I have many expert accountants
who are going carefully over the Tam

necticut, Pennsylvania and New Jer
sey who voted from six to twelve times.
They were paid $5 each for their vote
and they went back home boasting
about the fine time they had while in
New York.
"It is not for my election that I am
fighting so hard," concluded Mr.
Hearst, "as it is to try and remedy
the deplorable conditions which exist
in this great city at the present time."
Sensational Charge.
One of the most sensational charges
which have been made since the con
test over the official returns oegan
deals with the carting away, on the
morning following the election, of two
ballot boxes containing votes by a
Tammany captain.
Patrick Monahan, a well-known real
estate dealer, whose offices were used
as a polling place last Tuesday, is au
thority for this charge. His is the fif
teenth election district of the thirty*
fifth assembly district, which is in the
Bronx. Louis Haffen, Bronx borough
president, is the district leader.
Mr. Monahan asserts that he left his
office before the close of the balloting
on Tuesday and did not return until
Wednesday morning.
When-'he entered-'his- office o*t Wed
nesday morning he asserts that he saw
two of the ballot boxes, including the
one used for the regular "blanket bal
lots" for city, county and district can
didates, still in the booth.
Tammany Captain Got Boxes.
Mr. Monahan thought this rather odd,
and while he was deliberating what he
should do, a certain Tammany captain^ 1
Monahan says he did not feel called' E "t
upon to protest, as he believed that *?f
the man in question was authorized to
do what he did. Later, however, after
thinking the whole matter over, he told
the story to the municipal ownership
candidate for coroner in the Bronx. The
latter organization immediately started
an investigation.

found, it was one or the small boxes
the constitutional-amendment ballots,
both of which are preserved and one
for the mutilated ballots and one for
the stubs, both of which are thrown
away. I believe that the box found in
the barber shop was one of the small
ones for mutilated ballots."
Mr. Voorhis criticized severely the
action of Judge Gayner in issuing the
mandamus to the election board, com
pelling them to receive the ballot boxes.

Tammany's Counsel Talks.
Judge Alton B. Parker, who is chief
counsel for Mayor McClellan, was in
consultation most of the day in regard
to the contest. He had no statements
to make today concerning the contest.
Charles H. Knox, chairman of the Tam
many law committee, said: "lam pre
pared to express the belief, not found
ed on air, but on facts gathered from
mahy sources, that an examination of
the protested ballots will show an in
crease in Mayor McClellan's vote. I also
am utterly- unable to find any evidence
of anything unusual or out of the ordi
nary in such districts as I have looked
into. There are always protested bal
lots and always will be. Many of these
ballots should be counted for McClellan
and some, undoubtedly, for Mr. Hearst,
but the balance will be found to be in
favor of the mayor.
"The charges printed in newspapers
concerning the election have been reck

mind and were not warranted by ex
isting facts. There always is trouble
in some localities in close elections.

Billings, Mont., No 11.Charles E. Sollin,
cashier of the Northern Pacific company's office
in this city, was arrested here yesterday after
noon on the charge of grand larceny. The par
ticular shortage for which Sollin was arrested
was the theft of two express packages, each
containing S50, but it is expected his entire
shortage will reach about $8,400.
Sollin had become infatuated with a woman
upon whom he is said to hare lavished large
sums, far beyond his Income. He is weU edu
