ALUM CREATES A SENSATION IN
One Member of the Mlisourl Lenlsta-
ture Had Seven One Thousand Dol
lar Dills Getting at the Very
Heart of State Doodling.
'Knough facts wero dovolopcd bo-
fore tho St. louls grand Jury concern
ing boodllng in tho Missouri lcgtBla
turo to keep Attorney General Crow
busy for Uio balnnco of tho torm," said
Circuit Attorney J. W. Folk, In St.
Louis last night.
"Wo nro gottlng at tho very heart
of tho boodlo mattor now, nnd wo will
cortalnly oxposo corruption in tho
attito as it soldom has been
exposed boforo In any sjnto or city,"
Bald Attorney General Crow at Jeffer
St. Louis, April 15. Senator John
P. Collins of St. Louis will bo asked
by Uio SL Louis grand Jury to oxplaln
whoro ho obtained $7,000 in $1,000 bills
which ho dlsplnycd In sovoral down
town saloons a fow dayB after Uio ad
journment of tho legislature Flvo of
tho bills aro said to havo boon depos
ited in tho Lafayctto National bank,
whllo Senator Collins is said to havo
retained tho othor two.
This Information reached Circuit
Attorney Folk about 7 o'clock tonight
and ho Immediately ordered a sub
poena Issued for tho man Uiat fur
nished tho Information and for sovoral
othors who sa,w tho bills in Collins'
Ono Uiousand dollar bills which en
tered Missouri boodlo history with tho
alum loglslatlon, havo played a re-
markablo part in tho alleged boodllng
at Jefferson City ,nnd It Is tho deslro
of Mr. Folk to find whoro Mr. Collins
got theso bills. Tho statement mado
by Uio man who. first unbosomed him
self wns to tho effect that Senator Col
lins had "flashed" soven $1,000 bills
In sovoral snloons and lator had plant
ed flvo of them In Uio Lafayotto bank.
Senator Collins could not bo found
this ovoning nnd tho bank officials ro-
fusod to discuss tho bank deposits.
Tho supposition is that tho monoy was
placed to Individual accounts, or olso
checked out by Collns to mombors of
tho comblno, thus avoiding Uio ne
cessity of "breaking" tho big bills,
to avert talk, which has already led
to tho dotcction of at least sovon of
tho bills. ,JJU
Senator Stono, who is desired as a
witness by tho grand Juries hero and
at Jofforson City, need havo no fear of
prosecution. At tho tlmo ho accoptcd
tho $5,000 for speaking In bohnlf of
l.tl. .Vl. . .
