ZIEGLER PROVES ALIBI
AT EXTRADITION HEARING.
Contlnnod From 1'hko One.
Mr. Bowcre quobilcnod the right of a
private attornej- to appear in a case of
this kind, but Judge Harvey replied that
in tbe State of 'Missouri wherever tha
torch was applied or property lost through
corrupt practices, any lawj-er had the
right to appear In extradition proceedings.
No attempt was made to give nnj- ver
bal testlmonj-. Judgo Harvey read a dozen
affidavits made by former Lieutenant Gov
ernor Lee, District Attorney Brown of
Cole Count-, attaches of tho Southern
and the Planters Hotel, and others, which
told the general storj- of tho bribery
scandal.
Judge Harvey repeated!- protested
against being confined to that particular
period In March, declaring, that their
strongest evidence related to the trans
actions In January and April. No affidavits
were submitted bj- any one who actua'.ly
saw Mr. Ziegler In Missouri In March.'
ADMITS THAT X.OIB
OX REGISTER IS FORCED.
Mr. ZItgler's attornejs were also great-1-
surprised when Judge Harvey admitted
that the name of William Ziegler on fthe
Southern Hotel reg!er on March 13, was
a forgery. He explained that Daniel J.
rsi- v -$" .
I . .
Keney, .vir. ziegler's alleged uisDiirsing
agent, was staling at the Planters Hotel,
and that ho registered Mr. Zlcslcr's namo
at the Southern. This, he said, was done
for the purpose of showing to certain leg
islators that Mr. Zksler wa In the city
and that the money v.ould be forthcoming.
It was contended that Mr. Zleglcr was
staving elswherc in St. Louis.
i:.i'i.oiti:it n i,invi.v.
APKIDAMT KILtu.
Eieln Baldwin, Mr. Zlegier's former
commander of a polar expedition, stated
In an aflldavlt that he was in New York
on or about March 17, and went with Mr.
Zleglcr and Daniel J. Kelley to the rail
road statiun whin tiny started fur St.
l.miif.
He said Mr. Ziegler hid told him that
tin weir- going to Missouri to cru-h the
alum people. He mid Mr. Z'igler re
turned Man-h '" and that he then talked
with him about the insults of his trip,
and Mr. Zitgl.-r told him they had ac
eompllslifd what the went for and that
In- would nnkn a great deal ot money
by it. Mr. Xltglcr Fmiled and shook his
head whin this affidavit was read.
At the conclusion of tho reading of
ihe Slate's affidavits, Mr. Bowers turned
to tho Altorrey General and asked:
J "Now that jour own evidence Is before
the Governor, I assume that jou will
hardly claim jouiself that Mr. Zieglcr
1 was In Missouri on tho ISth of Match
j 1951 r-
j TO I'llcnntT ZIIHILEIt.
"I think I had better decide that ques
tion," .-aid Governor Odill. "It Is my
ilul," he continued in explanation, "to
I protect citizens of this Stat", cscipt in
' ras-s v.hcie the yrlm i facio case Is es-
tabli-h.-d."
' The Governor then stated, as he had
t ,-eVClal times beftire. Ih.it In :i somewhat
-imilar case, tho Court of Appeals hud
ovenulcd tho Governor's decision In
granting extradition when It was not con-clu-lvely
established that the defendant
was In the State at the time of the com
mission of the crime for which he was to
be extri'dited. Ho .said he desired to be
perfectly fair, but that he must keep ns
close to the lines of the law as he know
how ti lo.
"But," asked Judge Harvey, "hiipjioe a
muider had been committed In Missouri
and one of the eye witnesses of the crime
had lieu to jour State, would v-ou then
require positive proof that he was pres
ent? In other words, would ou accept
an alibi or would j-ou con-lder that It was
a matter to ro before a jury?"
Governor OJell -aid that he did not re
gard thay as a parallel case.
"Well," added Judge Harvey, "ne eon
tend that we are within tho law when
we demand the light to show that Mr.
Ziegler was thcie In Januarv- and again
In April, in making cut a prima facl case.
We also contend that If this defendant
sent his ag.nt, Kellej-, there to effect
bribery, ho is a.s gulltj- of the crime as It
ho acted as the disbursing agent him
self." '
At tho e-onelusion of the hearing at 7
o'clock to-night. Governor Odell told At-tornej-
General Crow and Judge Harvej
that he would give them two weeks in
which to file briefs en the contested
points of law. Another week will be given
to Mr. Zleler's attornejs to examine and
answer these briefs.
Itw1ll therefore be at least three weeks'
before Governor Odell's decision will bo
given, but even the Missouri officials were
satisfied to-night that tho Governor will
decide against them.
CltOW HAS SYlll'TOMS
OK i:oioma.
Attorney General Crow started imme
diately for the West to-night. He Is HI
with a high fever and has ornptoms 0f
pneumonia. He required the attendance
of a physician to-dav-. Before leav ing Al-banj-.
General Crow said:
"This maj- be New York State law, but
It Is not Missouri law. Wo did not come
heio prepared to give Mr. Ziegler n Jurj
trial, nor did we expect to bo restricted
to cne little section of the cae. You might
as well trv to get a conviction for mirder
bj- proving the motive or the corpus de
lecto. I believe that we had the light,
under well-estibll?hed Ian, to prove a
prlma-facle case for tho purpose of estab
lishing our right to his cMraditlon. We
have been denied that right. What our
next move will be I cannot sij Nothing
that has transpired to-day has changed
mj- view of the case one lota. In fact, I
am more thoroughly convinced than ever
beforo that all of tho charges In tho in
dictment aro well grounded."
Neither Mr. Ziegler nor his attomsvs
would discuss the result of the blaring
after it was over. Thej- all ieturned to
New York to-night.
ZIEGLER'S LAWYERS COSTLY
AS MISSOURI LEGISLATURE;
HE SHEDS COPIOUS TEARS.
REPUBLIC EPBCIAL.
Albanj", N. Y.. Dec 7. Probably it cost
William Ziegler more monej- for to-daj-'s
work before Governor Odell than It cost
to protect his baking powder Interests In
the Legislature c Missouri three years
ago.
Ho told through five of the most ex
pensive lawTers In New York Cltj- bim
bo had been the victim of revenge and the
scheming of his enemies.
Mr. Ziegler several times became tearful
in the matter. When reference was made
to the affidavit of Eveljn Baldwin, he
wept.
Then when Lawj-er Bowers related how
he had been maligned by P. E. Udell,
president of the Provident Chemical Com
pany of Missouri, again his tears flowed
coplonslj-.
But it was all very expensive for Mr.
Ziegler.
Edward Lautcrbacb, one of his coun
sel, has for manj- jears been one of Sen
ator Thomas C. Piatt's chief lieutenants
In handling iho affairs of the Republican
party In this Slate. Mr. Lautcrbach and
Governor Odell aro close friends.
His services cOme very high.
John M. Bowers, another of Mr. Zleg
lcr's icgal supporters, was formerly as
sociated with a law ilrm in which Senator
Piatt's son was a leadlns member. lie,
too. is expensive.
Do Lane- Nieoll was formerly District
Attornej- of New- York County, and In n
cent jears has given his energies only
to corporations ablo to pay tho top-notch
rrico for legal aid. All of the other repre
sentatives on Mr. Zieglcr's staff to-day
are hlgn-crieed men.
ZIEGLKIl IS AIlI.i:
TO AI-'FORIl E.I'EXE.
But Mr. Ziegler la worth sn.ttXUiA He
liven In one of the most elaliorately fur
nished mansions on Fifth avenue. New
York Cltj-. His friends all belong to the
millionaire clats. So It was hardlj- a fair
fight for Attorney General Crow and
Judge Harvey
When thej- appeared before Governor
Odell to-daj-. confronted by all this po
litical and financial strength. General
Crow saw at the outset that he was de
feated. Ho came here with the belief that
rt would be necessary for him simply to
establish the general fact that William
Ziegler was tho source of supplj' In the
baking powder scandal. He quickly dis
covered, however, that Mr. Zieglcr's fif
teen millions had greater weight than
Missouri Justice.
The motto of General Crow's official
life, according to himself. Is:
"It Is a. pretty good thing to keep on
speaking terms with jour own oo
science." It is that motto that has carried him
through various tights against Missouri
bcodlers, but It availed him very little at
tho New York State capital to-da
CHOW AM) UAIIVEY
LOSE THEIR TEMPERS.
Two or three times to,-day General Crow
and Judge Har.vey lo-t 'their tempers and
attempted to make a fight l.ialnst the Iti-sh-.
itlc ns that Zlcgler's attorneys v.ero
burling at them and at the good faith cf
the Missouri officials generally.
Their protests were met each time by
the contented smiles of Zleler"H lawyers.
Governor Odell said that ho was elmply
doing his duty, but General Crow declared
that the Governor's duty had been fixed
by map and diagram by tho defendant's
counsel.
Before the heiring had progressed far
Mr. Zicgi'i's counsel demanded that Dis
trict Atturm-v Brown of Cole County b
produced for the purpose of testifying. At
torney General Crow said he was not
present.
"What!" thundeied Lawyer Bowers.
"Do j ou mean to say that this man who
charged Mr. Ziegler with being a fugitive
from Justice Is not hero to repeat his
assertions before the Governor?"
"He Is not here," said Attorney General
Crow.
ACCI JKi BROWS
OI" 1IEIM" I'lKITIVE.
"Then I charge him with being a fugi
tivo frcm Justice." said Mr. Bowers. "He
was requc-ted to appear here, and I
charge lack of good faith on the part of
jou, sir, that he Is not here."
General Crow leaped toward Mr. Bow cm,
hi i cj-03 flashing and his lists clinched.
Then ho retraced his bteps, and In a
calmer mood turned to tho Governor.
"Your Ereellencj-," he said, "I want to
bo decent about this thing, but I must
insist that that man" shaking his fingers
at Mr. Bowers "be decent, alio. Wo did
not come hero to be insulted, and I will
not stand It."
Mr. Zlegler's ofllclal answer to tho ap
plication for extradition was little mora
than a. wall that his enemies weie after
him. In reference to Evelyn Baldwin, he
said:
11JI.I.S OV DISMISSING
1IAMUI FROM EMPLOY.
"Baldwin Is a personal cnemj- of mine.
I emp.ojed him to take charge of an ex
pedition to the North Poie, and on his
failure to faithfully represent the Intciests
contlded to him I discharged him from
sucli employment In the month of October,
1W-', and ho then and there tnreatened ho
would get even with me, and, us I am in
formed and believe, has since then been
actively engaged In llndlng ail opportunity
lor so doing."
Concerning P. E. Udell, he sajs:
"1 am liuormed and bcucvu that F. E.
Udell has repeauuiy niuuc bitter etate-
ments against me, charging mo with hav
ing been engaged In advertising matters
calculated to interfere with his business
interest."
Ho then charges that Mr. Udell was
opposed to him because he had succeeded
In purchasing most of the stock of the
Provident Chemical Companj-.
One bj- ono the answer deals with the
witnesses who testified before the Cole
County Grand Jury. Concerning former
Lieutenant Governor John A. Lee, Mr.
Ziegler .-ays:
DEMI'S THAT HE
EVER .MET J. A. LEE.
"I never met Mr. Lee In my life and
never had any acquaintance with him. I
have, however, now obtained information
as to tho evidence ho must necessarily
have given before the Grand Jurj'."
Ho then rehearses the story of Senator
Parrls'a connection with the boodllng case.
Mr. Ziegler positively tald that he was
not In tho State of Missouri between De
cember, 1000, and April, 1901. Tho -tatc-ment
In the affidavit of District Attorney
Brown that ho fled from the Justice of
the State of Missouri was vehemcntlj- de
nied. Several times at the hearing efforts
w ere made to prohibit Judge Harvey from
appearing. In io case, because he repre
sented prlvato Interests. Judge Harvey
franklj-, admitted that he was acting In
tho Interests of the thlrtj--ono small bak
ing powder concerns, which had been
thrown out of business bj' the anti-alura
legislation, anO said he expected to Lo
well paid for his services.
When Attorney General Crow left Albanj-
to-night for tho West he was not
In a particularly amiable frame of mind.
CROW SA1 S THAT
CASE IS AOT EMIEII.
"Tho very fa:t," ho said, "that Ziegler
has come here surrounded by such a force
of Influential lawjers shows that 1, real
izes that he had a very stubborn question
to meet. Tor the present we seem to havo
como up against a wall, but the end of
this matter is not j-et.
"The people of Missouri realize that
their interests havo been attacked. In
some Instances valuable Interests have
been destroj-ed, and what has taken place
tO'dny uill not deter i from continuing
this fight until wo havo reached 'every
guilty person who comes under the lavs
of the State."
When asked If another Indictment would
be obtained against Mr. Ziegler, he said
he did not know. Ho added, however,
tint there were minj- strong points In
tho Zieglcr case wh'cii had not j-et been
presented to n Grand Jury and that it
might be accented as a certainty that tho
case would not be dropped.

FROM MR, FOLK,
Reed Says Circuit Attorney De
serves So More Praise for
Boodle Disclosures Than
Do Others.
RKrUBLIC SPECIAL.
Columbia, Mo., Dec. 7. Mayor James A.
Reed of Kansas City, candidate for the
Democratic nomination for Governor, ad
dressed a large gathering- of Boone Coun
ty Democrats in the Courthouse to-night.
This morning he addressed a. convention
of tho students of Missouri University on
tho subject "Stato Pride." Both addresses
-. ere well received. The address this morn
lns was free from any political bias.
Mayor Heed wis Introduced this even
ing by Doctor M. D. Lewis, after which
ho spoke for two hours, devoting the
greater part of his speech to a discussion
of the records of tho Democratic party in
Missouri for the last thirty years. Ho de
fended the State administration against
the attacks of the Republican party and
press nnd declared that It has always
been honest nnd judlcions.
WOULD NOT GIVE FOLIC CREDIT.
Ho took Issue with Mr. Folk on the
latter's declaration at Carrollton that
boodle and honesty arc the Issues In the
Democratic party. Maor Reed discu.oed
the boodle situation and told the story
of the boodle exposure In St. Louis, giv
ing the credit of the exposure to St. Louis
newspapers.
"Mr. Folk." he said, "deserves no more
credit for tho exposure of boodle in St.
Louis than does Mayor Holla Wells,
Harry B. Hawes, the Sheriff and Circuit
Judges of St. Louis And Governor Dock
cry. "In regard to tho hoodie exposure In Jef
ferson City, Governor Dockcry told me
weeks beforo a. pub.Ic announcement of
the boodle In the Legislature was made
that ho thought there was something
wrong- In the Legislature, and ho would
pay tlfitJO out of his own pocket to find
out who the offenders were and punish
them. If It hae'i not been for the fact that
Attorney General Crow, not Folk, won
that confession from John A. Lee, some
of jou would still be for him (Lee) for
Governor."
Referring to the candidacy of Atlorn-y
Folk, he said that no one could tell anything-
about his campaign management,
or who was back of it. It is composed,
he said, of Democrats and Republicans.
Ho directed his attention to Folk's cam
paign, making no reference whatever to
the candidacy of any one else.
Mayor Reed closed with a tribute lo
Missouri and the Democratic party.
