Keeling runs high among the . ?tralghiout leaders, who declare they j will oppeal to the courts as well as to the State Committee. Many voters were challenged, but most of them were allowed to cast | their ballots, notwithstanv'.jng the pro- j tests.

It appears to be a clean victory for the Fusion!?is. The Straightout;* have only carried three precincts, accord? ing to the returns receive.1 up to 1 o'clock this morning. C w. Coleman, Stralghtout candidate for clerk of the court, has a big majority In his pre? cinct, hut the count was not complete. His majority there will not be surti clent to overcome hir opponent's lead In the other precincts. Alvah Martin, Republican clerk of the court, met with the other Fusion lead? ers at the clerk's office to receive the returns, and they all rejoiced together over tht< victory. Captain R- C. Mar? shall, who Is renominated for Com? monwealth's attorney, was the only one of the group who would talk to The Tlmes-Dlspatch correspondent. He said the majority was not quite as large as he had expected, but It was eufflclent to show the appr val of the citizens of (he countv of the present I method of administering its affairs. | Captain Marshall said the complete returns would show a Fusion majority of 250 or 260. or possibly 275 votes. H* had counted winning by 315 ma? jority. Returns Lnte In Coming In. A significant feature of the counting which some persons think may possi? bly change the result Is the lateness of the returns from Glebe, the home precinct of Mr. Coleman, and Fair mount Park, the home precinct of Sheriff A. C. Cromwell. It Is reported that there was a heavy vote In both precincts, one going stroncrly for the Btralghtouts and the other strongly for tho Fuslonists South Norfolk is another large pre? cinct from which It has so far been Impossible to get tho returns. The Fuslonists are said to have carried this precinct by a large majority Two other small precincts In the ?outhern part of the county have not sent in returns, bill it is conceded that tho Fuslonists will have small ma? jorities in both. The vote except In three or four pre? cincts, where Interest was centred be? cause of the personality of the candi? dates was liRht. Many persons re? mained away from the polls because they wanted to feel free to vote for who ever they saw fit in the Novem? ber election. No disorders have been reported, ?Mho.ugh the contest was closely ? guarded^, by' both sides. The Straight cut headquarters in the Montlcello Hotel were deserted during the day, and all of tho younfc attorneys who bave, taken the. lend In the campaign ? wore at work at the polls.

NO REDUCTIONS SHOWN IN RATE Gain of $17,986 Over Semi-An nual Dividends of January 1, and of $48,474 Over Pay- j ments at Beginning of Last Year?Other Big J Divisions. Demonstrating again, at the close of ] another dividend period, the growing Importance and success of the bank- J ing institutions of which Richmond is j proud. It Is found that a total of 1 $266,636 will be paid out on July 1 I to the stockholders In these financial concerns. This does not inciude one or | two of the small banks, which pay j dividends at other times. By these figures a gain is shown of j JlT.iSfj In dividends over the sum paid by the same institutions on January 1 of this year. In no case has the rate of dividend been reduced, while In more than one case there has been an increase, while other additions are due to larger capital being employed. It Is worthy of note that the sum paid by the banks in dividends on Jan uary 1. 1011 ? 1237,650?was greater by j (30.4SS than the amount so distributed one year previous, on Januaiy I, 1?10. Break? All Record*. The total to be paid on Saturday of ! this week Is greater than any bankln? dividend ever before paid in the city of Richmond. It represents the high water mark, just as each preceding payment for some years has cone. A new record Is set every six months. Besides the amounts to be paid by ; the banks, dividends have been an nounced, payable at about the same time, by the Virginia Fire and Marine Insurance Company of (60.000. being 6 per cent, semi-annual on a capital of j (1,000,000, and ny the Vlrglnla-Caro- i Una Chemleal Company of (360,000, be ing the quarterly dividend of 2 per j cent, on the preferred capital of (IS.- ; !?00.000. i The dividends to b? paid on July 1 ; by the various banks of the city fol- j low.

A comparison shows that the big? gest Increase comes this time from the First National Bank, which has raised its rate of dividend since Jan? uary 1 from 5 to 6 per cent., making its profits distributed at this time $60.000 instead of $50.000. The yearly dividends now paid by this bank will at this rate aggregate 12 per cent, on the capital stock. Because of its large capital, the First National leads all other banks in gross amount of dividend, although its rate is not so high as is the case with others. The American National pays quar? terly, dividing 2 per cent., or 6 per cent, a year. The stock now aggre? gates $600,000. The Main Street Bank, paying 2 per cent., as usual, has in? creased Its capital since January 1 from $97,250 to (105,450. An lncrense of 1-4 of 1 per cent. Is shown by the Bank of Commerce and Trusts, which this time pays a quarterly dividend of 1 1-2 per cent.. Instead of 1 1-4, on a. capitnl of (250, 000. This makes an annual dividend of 6 per cent.

Earle. Jr.. receiver; for the trust company. before the House sugar investigating committee, ' asserier that former President Theo? dore Roosevelt had lost his preference for ??large game/' The Pennsylvania refinery was acquired by the American ' company and promptly closed. Mr. Earle, who declared that he made repeated efforts to induce the Federal authorities to take up the case, also ' declared that considerable of his cor- ; respondehe'e with Mr. Roosevelt in relation to the case war not comrnuni- 1 dated to the Senate when a resolution was passed calling for all papers. Mr. i Karle submitted to the committee two I letters he said he wrote to Mr. Roose? velt subsequent to the one bearing date of September 21, 1906. submitted to the Senate. .Never Sau I,lebt of Day. ?'That letter was not all 1 wrote to ? Mr. Roosevelt." said Mr Earle, in re? sponse to a ?iuery by Chairman Hard* wick. "I wrote several that never saw the light of day, and 1 have been able ! to find two of them " "Read them," sajd Mr. Hardwlck. "On October l, Ilms. Mr. Karle re plied, "nothing having been done by the government In this case, I wrote ; another letter to Mr. Roosevelt." Here the witness began reading a copy of that letter. In which he said, being an alumnus of Harvard, as was ] Mr. Roosevelt, that "I began to labor J under the horrible suspicion that this might* prove the first occasion upon! which '79 asked assistance of 'SO and | did not get it." The remainder of the letter follows: Seriously, I mean still seriously, the matter of the wrecking of the Reali Estate Trust Company by the Sugar j Trust, if Justice should be done. need3 ' the promptest attention from the At? torney-General. I have seen a number j of conspirators who wrecked this In? stitution for the benefit and at the Instigation of the Sugar Trust, and I am in myself a magazine of evidence against them, but while we have been waiting and doing nothing others have been intensely active, and these very persons who were hot to help me are now withholding all documents and evidence at their command. If we could have Jointly acted a little earlier we might have gotten some original ? papers which wo greatly need, and j may find It very difficult to do so now: but I have copies and can prove them, ! althoush not all the facts that es- i tabll.-h the Infamy of this conspiracy, j ... It has often happened that you have been able to punish the oppres? sors of the public, but there has really been no occasion where there has been substantial evidence against so many of the first rank; and I totally mis? judge yo'ir character If you have lost your preference for large game.' " Hud Lost Ills Preference. ?'Mr. Roosevelt had lost his prefer? ence for large game and I was mis? taken." declared Mr. Earle when he concluded He then read another let? ter which he wrote to Mr. Roosevelt under date of October 27. 1906. In this letter, after apologizing for his importunity, he said: "I thought that the caBe that had come to my attention In the perform? ance of an unsought trust, both might enable the government to enforce a most Important statute hitherto un? used and at the same time demon? strate that the oft-made assertion of the trust that they were but techni? cally, not morally, guilty of crime, was untrue. When men, for pecuniary ends, violate one class of laws they do not stop at Infringing' others; but j when they so charge that the govern? ment is prosecuting them for making' more necessary arrangements. It is I difficult to prove the untruth of their j assertion. And so. when I found a case of first impression where they was proof of what I consider pure ; villainy. I thought it my duty to lay it directly before you. And I have, or had no other end to serve. "I have followed your suggestion and visited the Attorney-General, who In turn referred me to Mr. Purdy, at whJch 1 greatly rejoiced. For. unless I have misread his character he is in? telligent, fearless and devotod to the performance of his duty. I think he now understands the Importance of this case; a,.d so I am content, and wish to thank you for whatever trou? ble you may have been put to by my appeal to you." Mr. t.ar'e declared he had not talked I with Attorney-General Moody because I the latter had been appointed to the I Supreme Court bench, and could not undertake the case. He had seen As? sistant Attorney-General Purdy, ex? plained the case to him. and thought "that the government was going to press the case. Wanted All Detail?. "Purdy told me," said Mr. Barle, "that he wanted all the details. I gave them to him. After he heard them he Jumped up and said: 'We'll send them all to Jail." He said they wanted to get the best man In tha United States as special counsel in the case, atid asked mo how James M. Deck, former associate attorney general, would do.

Washington. D. C. June" 28.?This! was a day of bitter arraignment of the Canadian reciprocity bill In the j Senate Beginning with Senator Cum- '. mlns's attack on the measure as Ice- j Isiatton unjust to the agricultural In? terests of the country, and conclud? ing wljh Senator Borah's denunciation of the bill as Republican betrayal of : the farming interests, the debate was , all antagonistic to the agreement and critical of the Presinent and Iiis meth? ods. The Senate gave but partial at? tention to the speeches, altnough they were among the most Important that j will be made against the bill. Several | times a call of the senate was de- \ manded. Senator Cummins not only attacked j the construction of the reciprocity | agreement itself, which he snld put the j whole burden of free trade upon the farmer without giving him any bene fits in the guise of reduction of du- ! ties on manufactured products, but j he criticized also the power exercized ] by the President to negotiate it, and to bring it to the point of a definite I agreement between the two countries. In doing this, said Senator Cummins, , the President had usurped the powers : of Congress, and had exceeded the j power lodge 1 In him to deal with for- i eign nations upon revenue matters. ! Farmers to Be Excluded. "I know that the day has come for the farmer." declared Senator Cum- ; mlns. "the day In which he is to be excluded from the benefits of the pro- j tectlve tariff. The decree has been written; it needs only the official sly nature of the time being to exclude him from the company of the manu facturers of the t'nited states." Senator Bacon asked Mr. Cummins If he thought legislation in the Senate ought to be Influenced by the threat of a veto from the President. "It Is j abhorrent to me." replied Mr. Cum? mins, "to hear the suggestion that any Senator will be influenced by the probable action of the chief ex? ecutive on the completed legislation, j "We have been assaulted here day j after day with the representation, ap- J parently authoritative, that if this bill I Is amended in any way It will be I vetoed by the President. I am not Baying that the President of tho | United States Is responsible for these statements I -inly know that they | are so uniform and so emphatic that] they have found lodsment in the minds j of many Senators, who believe they j can make no change In this bill, how? ever meritorius those amendments may be. "It is the beginning of the. end of the dignity, the power and the re- | spectability of Congress and the Sen-! ate to have it repeated here day after day that we must not amend ihls bill because it will meet with the dls- j approval of the executive. "I wish some one more able than I ] would stand here and denounce the I attempt to Influence legislation In the] Senate through such suggestions. I wish the Senate could reassert Its im? munity from influence of the character that has been presented in this fight." Not Wish of Majority. "1 am not willing to concede that President Taft. In the crusade in which ? he is now engaged." said Senator Brist?w, "represents the. Republican ! partv of this nation. He does not rep- ! resent the majority of the Republican ! members of the House or Senate, nnd | I believe he docs not represent the | sentiments of a majority of the Re- ] publicans of the country." Senator Borah declared the estab- j llshment of free trade In agricultural 1 products was either a denial of the principles for which the Republican ! party had heretofore stood or a "coarse and brutal betrayal of the most loyal constituency the party organization has ever had." "No page in the political history can equal this defrayal by the Republi? can party of this great and loyal con? stituency." he said.

Sheets of memoranda taken by the witness In this pursuit bore caballttlc letters which Symes had some diffi? culty in explaining. He could not re? member the meaning of "N.

Martin Littleton, counsel for Gam? bler, rested his case with the deposi? tion of David Morrison, of Sprlngflold.

I TERRIBLE EXPERIENCE IN ALL HER C6REER Helen Dwelle Jenkins Tells of $300,000 Jewel Robbery. STRANGE WOMAN FIGURES IN CASE Mysterious Friend Has Part in Disappearance of Fortune in Gems?Robbed of Another $100,000 in Recovering Her Precious Baubles, Gifts of Millionaire Allen. Following Is a continuation of the lifo story of ,-MrB. John W. Jenkins," central figure in the now famous $350.000 Jewel smuggling case, as told by herself: BY HELEN DWELLE JE.VKIXS. [Spec ial to The Tlmes-Dlspatch.] New York, June 23.?In narrating as frankly as I know how the story of my life yesterday, I purposely omitted an extended recital of what was the most terrible experience in all my ca j reer. This was the robbery of my $300,000 worth of Jewels from my ! apartment In the Lorraine, at Fifth I Avenue and Forty-fifth Street, the very centre of New York's most fashionable district. I think It is worthy to be treated as a chapter all by Itself. Jewels don't put food In one's stomach, or clothes upon one's back, until necessity com? pels their conversion Into cash, but their sparkle, their shimmer, their glitter dazzle women's eyes and rill their hearts with savage Joy. World Knows It Now. That I was robbed of the Jewels all the world knows now. But only tho very few persons who know me well believed that a woman obscure as my? self could possibly have accumulated so valuable a collection of gems. Tho New York pol!ce,*or at least a large I part of them, actually believed I had l lied at first about the loss, and sec? ondly about the value of these jewels. Not until 1 was robbed of about $100,000 In recovering them was my story generally believed. The facts connected with the second robbery ara as strange and mysterious as the cir? cumstances that surrounded the theft it?"*]t .. In the story of my life I told all about the lordly manner in which Mr. Nathan Allen expresses his Infatua? tion for me by lavishing money In tho purchase of Jewels for my pleasure. I shall never be able to tell within tens of thousands of dollars how much of his princely Income he put Into gems for the gratification of his pride I In me as well as for my own delight. II am certain, however, that the thieves found more than $300,000 In glittering perns when they opened the package In which they took the precious bau? bles from my cedar chest at th? Lor i rnlne. I recovered less than $250.000 worth of them. The lawyers and detectives connected directly and Indirectly with their restitution distributed among themselves $41,000 on the proceeds of a check they told me had been sent to them by Mr. Allen for me. About 3:30 o'clock in the af'.trnoon of December 11, 1909, 1 had gone out in my limousine for a ride through the park. As fate so plotted it. 1 had not worn a single jewel. I left every one of them In a small box locked in a big cedar chest in a hallway of my apartment. I was to serve tea at 4:30 o'clock that afternoon to a dozen guest? T returned within a half-hour. As soon as I opened my apps rtment door I saw that the lid of the cedar chest had been pried up. The lock had been broken. Instantly I realized that my gems had been stolen. Wim llorror-Strlckeu. Transfixed with horror. I stood stark still for I don't know how long. My gaze was riveted to a mysterious wo-, man nonchalantly lounging In my bedroom as though there was nothing but hnpplness in the world. v\ ho this ?vornan really is I don't to this day known. She had Seen living with me for nearly .1 month. I had been intro? duced to her by a mutual friend, a very wealthy banker in Western Penn? sylvania. She was companionable, talkative, bright and cheerful. In the absence of Mr. Allen, who was in Eu? rope with his wife. I pined constantly for. companionship She supplied .lust ?hat I needed. Rut In the course of two weeks I began to hint to her as delicately as possible that "Mr. Jen? kins" might return on any steamer, and that she. therefore, would havo to find accommodations elsewhere. And so. when I returned to the Lor? raine from my ride In the park on tho fateful afternoon of December 11. 1909, I saw this strange woman lolling, in apparent co.ntontment. on my bed. She did not become ex.Mted when I foil her about my lo?s She expressed a sort of regret, hut said very little. She acted as If she did not believe T had evr had an\ Jewels. I rushed to thr- office and gave the alarm. The manager of the hotel fnr badc mo to summon the local police. When l ran back to my room In des? peration, guests 1 had Invited to a tea had begun to assemble. The Porjnsyl vania banker declared he was shocked. Others of them did. too. But tho <tr.inge woman still wax unmoved. .The tea partv was broken up. ; Then ! called up the Plnkerton De? tective Agency and the police. It seemed impossible for me to convince them that I had been robbed. Later in the evening Mr. George Dougherty, then New York superin? tendent of th? Plnkerton agency, and now a deputy police commissioner I'ere. came up .md personally took charge of lhe case.
