How He Was "Shaken
Down" by P.O. Officials
He Was Asked to Furnish More
' Trimmings" for the Job Which
Had Been Instituted in
His Behalf.
Cincinnati. O., May 26. John J. Ry
an, whose confessions caused the ar
rest of D. V. Miller and Joseph F.
Johns in connection with the postal
frauds, operated his "get rich quick"
turf Investment concern from here and
from St. Louis and ran winter races at
Newport,' Ky. Other warrants have
been issued as a result of the investi
gation of PostofHce Inspectors W. J.
Vlckery of Cincinnati and R. M. Fulton
of St. Louis.
Ryan is her now and admits that
he operated some time at St. Louis be
fore the Inspectors got after him and
later he was called to Washington.
Ryan said: "I heard that others doing
business like mine stood in with the
postofflce department by giving up $25.
000. and I felt that' those who wero
standing in with the department were
behind the investigation so as to get
me out of their way."
After returning from Washington to
St. Louis last November, Ryan says he
got a telegram from Attorney Johns of
Rockville, Indiana, that Johns could be
of service to him with the department
at .Washington, and later Ryan and
Johns met In Terre Haute. There Ry
an says Johns explained how dose he
was to Miller and how Miller had ac
cepted a $2,000 job in the postofflce de
partment at Washington with the Idea
that the Job had certain trimmings,"
such as, Ryan says, Johns explained
Ryan would be able to furnish.
Ryan declares that Johns asked $5,000
to get frqm Miller a letter from the at
torney general's office, showing that
Ryan was entitled to use the mails. Af
ter a little dickering, Ryan says, Johns
came down to $2,500 and the proposition
was accepted. The proposition to pay
$2,000 for literature so worded that it
would pass muster if it was ever taken
up in the mails was Utter accepted.
Ryan asserts that Johns delivered the
letter and literature to him December
16. Ryan says he gave Johns $1,100
cash and checks dated December 17, one
for $2,000 and one for $1,400.
Then, Ryan says, everything ' went
along smoothly until the trouble of
February 9. A week later a fraud or
der was issued against Ryan, and Ry
an says an' effort for another shake
down was put on foot, but he would not
stand for it- He says he received more
telegrams from Johns. Ryan says he
preserved all the telegrams and let
Washington, D. C. May 26. The
checks which figure in the alleged pay
ments to Miller and Johns, which are
in po3sr ssion of the department are for
$3,400. They were sur plemented with a
cash payment of $1,100. The check3 are
signed by the Ryan concern and made
out to Johns' order and endorsed by
him. Ryan has agreed to be witness
for the government.
He has furnished to the department
all the information In his posession
Including the documents. While the
departme.it cannot guarantse Ryan
Immunity it will put his service in
turning state's evidence in the best
light before ths court. Miller had
charge of the investigation of the Ryan
case and prepared the letter which Act
ing Assistant Genera! Christiancy sign
ed. This letter which constituted the
decision of the department to allow the
concern to use the malls, -wa signed
December 10.
