thenticity of the majority of the let?
ter* recently made public by William
R. Haaret purporting to have passed
between John d. Archbold, of the
Standard Oil Company, and members
of the House and Senate, was ad?
mitted by Mr. Archbold to-day before
the Senate committee investigating
campaign activities and expenditure*.
Those letters, of which fac-slmilej
photographs have been published, wore j
! in almost every case identified by Mr.
! Ardhbold with the statement: "I un
| doubtediy wrote that." These included
letters to and from Sanators Hanna.

' mer RepresentaUvee Sibley, of Penn

! Many letters Mr. Archbold said he did
not remember, but he recognised |
handwriting and signatures and ad
; mitted their genuineness
The president of the Standard Oil I
Company, recoiled by the committee j
after making his charge In August!
that he had given JIOO.OJO to the Re-1
publican campaign fund tn 1904, a
mitted to-day that the receipt given I
by Cornelius X. Bliss for the sum had
been destroyed by himself and H. H.
Rogers, now dead. He said he had I
not been able to And even a book en?
try of the amount on the books of the I
Standard OH Company.
*T repeat that the money was paid.'
he said, "and was not refused, that;
it waa paid by me to Mr. Bliss. I don t.
want any man to tell me it was not." }
To Bhoasatae Beeke.
On the suggestion of Senator Pom- i
erene. the committee finally asked Mr. j
Arch bold to have expert accountants!
search the books of Che Standard Oil j
Company of New Jersey sad its for- j
?aar 4saeaat*Aaa to try surd Sad the'
record of the 1100,036 having been paid j
"May I rales ?he question of how]
important it is to find ?hat entry?";
asked Mr. Archbold. "There is noi
manner of question that the money I
j wag given."
"There kg some question whether It ?
was paid." returned Senator Pom erene,.
"and there is a statement made that I
it was refused. We want all the evl- ;
donee we can get"
Charles D. Hilles, chairman of the
Republican National Committee, also
? witness, was asked by Chairman .
Ckapp if he gave out a statement in \
August that the primary fight for Col- j
one] Roosevelt had :'ooet the harvester (
trust millions of dollars."
"I assume the responsibility for if," i
he answered.
His explanation was given to the
committee in the form of * letter he
had just written to George W. Per?
kins, who. with Senator Dlxon. de?
manded that Mr. Hilles be called to
account for his statement- The let?
ter expressed the opinion that Colonel
Roosevelt's "pre-conventfon campaign
expenses undoubtedly amounted to
not less than S2.000.000." J
The letter, which Mr. Hilles read to
the committee, asserted that the wit?
ness had already testified to giving
fSST.000 for the Roosevelt campaign
and that expenses in different States
and throughout the South would make
the total he gave much larger.
Chairman Clapp questioned the wit?
ness sharply as to his information, and
Mr. Hilles said it consisted of his gen?
eral knowledge of what the RooseveTt
workers had been doing and his spe?
cific contributing knowledge of what
certain kinds of campaign %ctrvit>
cost. He gave the committee no new
information regarding contributions to
the Taft nre-convention funds except a
list of the contributors to the funJT
raised in Chicago, the total of which

In his answer, which was filed to-.day
with the district committee at Peters?
burg. Judge Watson makes counter?
charges of illegal voting in Bruns?

who voted for Mr. TurnlmU there had
not properly paid their poU taxes. He

others at the same places, under simi?

the privilege.
Belief in the honesty of the primary

New York. October 10.?The trial of

ant, for the murder of Herman Ko?eu
thai, the sambler. began in earnest ka>
day. The Jury was completed. District
Attorney Whitman made his opening
address, and the taking; of testimony
wag begun.
Louis Krause, a Hungarian waiter,
was the star witness. He was called
1 by the State as an eyewitness ?f the
murder and identified In the courtroom
"Gyp the Blood," "Lefty Louie" and
"Whitey" Lewis as the actual slayers
of the gambler. As to "Dago Frank.''
the fourth of the gunmen indicted for
the murder. Krause was not certain,
but he positively identified Jack Sul?
livan, one of Becker's alleged tools, as
the man who bent jver Rosenthal s
dead body after it lay on the side?
walk In front of the Hotel Metropole.
Although John Mclntyre, counsel tor
the defense, spent two hours in cross
examination, the waiter stuck tena?
ciously to his story. Justice 6)S him?
self finally stopped the lawyer's ques?
I "I do not think it Is conducive to
the interests of justice further to ex?
amine this witness." declared the Jus?
tice. "I will permit no further Ques?
tion and discharge the witness."
Krause's identification of the three
i gunmen made a dramatic scene in the
j courtroom. The waiter told yf having
; been attracted into Forty-third Street
igbyut 2 o'clock on the morning of July
IS. the day of the murder,? by "several
I groups of men standing In the street."
In one groan, he said, wag "Brldgie"
[ Webber and in another the three gun
i men. who were standing near a Vuring
Signal feg Marder.
"I saw a man come out of the
Metropole and give a signal." said the
! witness "He raised his hand. An?
other man came out of the hotel right
after this one, and then four men
crossed the street, from the automobile.
At least three of them had revolvers
and fired.
"While Rosenthal was lying on tha
sidewalk, I saw Jack Sullivan bend
over him. Sullivan looked up and
: smiled at the other men."
i The four gunmen and Sullivan were
! tben brought into court. Krause, who
} later testified that he has received
i letters threatening his life. who. ever
[since he testified before the grand jury.
I has been guarded by a detective, walk
j*d over to the bar where the prisoners
were lined up.
That is "Lefty Louie.' " said Krause,
touching the gunman on the shoulder.
Successively he identified the other
! prisoners, with the exception of "Dago"
i Frank, and met their angry glares
! without flinching.
Then Mr. Mclntyre began bis cross
; examination. That It was his pur?
pose to try to discredit the identinca
i tion of the gunmen soon became evl
I dent, and this caused a stir. It had
. been generally supposed Becker's at
; torney would make no effort to defend
? the men charged with the actual slay

"Do you remember saying to Henry

. ( ?w lea Reeessmeads Better Express
Service la This Country.
i Washington. October 10.?A flat
1 charge for all packages, whatever their
j contents and whatever the distance ot
transportation, was advocated by James
L? Cowles, secretary of the Postal
Progress League, upon the resumption
of the express rate hearing before the
Interstate Commerce Commission. Mr.
Cowles said the American express
companies were carrying parcels from
Europe up to eleven pounds weight, at
a flat rate of 27 cents to any part of
the United States. He believed that
such service could be given to the
people of this country at a profit to
the carriers provided their business
was managed efficiently.
"One trouble Is that there Is no ef?
ficiency In the car service." he Insist?
ed. "The Railway Age has pointed out
that the average return from a car Is
about 12.50 a day. and that its average
daily mileage Is only sixteen miles.
Why. the modern frelglrt cars do not
earn as much as the old-fashioned
I stage coach earned half a century ago."
Walker D. Hines. of the sxpress com?
panies, declared express companies
would be confronted with a heavy de?
ficit If the proposed rates were made
effective. He said the percentage of
actual profit for 1912 thus far was less
I than 4 per cent. Mr. Hines had not
j concluded when the commission recess?
ed until to-morrow.
