tendent of the Wllllamsburg docks
who several oaths ago was convicted
of underwclghlng and sentenced to
two yearn In tho federal penitentiary
at Atlanta When Spllzer took the
stand John B Stanchfield for the do
Tense claims that under the federal
statute SpItzer convicted man could
not testify
The sensation of the trial was
I then created by tho declaration In
court that Spltzor has been pardoned
by President Taft
1 Ilelkc Is on trial in the United
States circuit court with five other
employes of tho American Sugar Re
j fining company on ho charge of con
splcaiy to defraud the government by
nnderwelghlng cargoes of sugar Im
ports
Witnesses have testified to tho dis
covery of fraudulent devices on tho
sugar docks at Wllllamsburg whereby
It Is alleged employes of the so
called sugar trust manipulated the
scales so as to bring about under
weighing
On evidence of Richard Parr n
government Inspector who made a
mid on the sugar docks In November
1907 and others Spitzer who was
the dock superintendent at the time
and for some years previous was con
victed with four checkers employed
under him of connection with the con
spiracy to perpetrate frauds where
by the government was cheated out
of millions of dollars in sugar duties
The four checkers Boyle Coyt Ke
roe and Ilonnessy were sent to the
BUiekwells Island penitentiary for tr
year
Spitzer got two years In Atlanta
Ho pYotested ignorance of frauds on
tho docks Men higher up were
sought and Heike the secretary of
tho trust and Ernest F Gorbracht
the rcflnlory superintendent were in
dicted With them on trial nof be
sides four other former company
checkers Is James F Bendernagci
the refinery cashier who was tried
with Spiuer and the others The Jury
disagreed as to whether Bendcrnagol
had a part In the conspiracy and It
was decided to retry him
As SpItzer testified to the under
weighing frauds on the docks it was
I developed that President Taft granted
f him an unconditional pardon on May
N 10th last
j Spitzer went back to the years 1804
and 1895 when ho said an Investiga
tion he made developed the fact that
the checkers were affecting tho
weights on raw sugar by placing small
bags of lead on the beams of the
scale causing the recorded weights
to drop below the actual often ai
much as forty pounds on each draft
In addition Spitxer said It was al
so the practice to stuff paper under
neath the floors o fthe scales for tho
name purpose He said that whuu
Deputy Surveyor of Customs Vail took
office these devices were abandoned
and the use of the steel cord and steel
was begun and continued
It was said before Spitzer got well
into his testimony that he would make
a clean breast of the frauds alleged
to have been committed in the under
I wclghlng of raw sugar on the WH
llnnisburg docks
SpItzer demonstrated in the court
the use of the bags of lead He
f walked over to the sample scale which
Is one of the governments exhibits In
the case and Indicated on the beam
the place where the bag was susl + end
ed
Heike listened to Spllzers testi
mony with Intense Interest
Spitzer talked freely about the
frauds by which the government was
robbed of millions of dollars He said
the use of the steel springs was step
ped after the Sugar trust had paid the
rebate to the government as a result
of the federal HulL

after convening today the senate con
tinued the consideration of the hut
ton amendment providing for one bat
I tleship Instead of two as provided for
by the house The advocates of tho
I amendment generally conceded that
tho amendment would be lost
I Senator Perkins was the first
I speaker of the day He Is chairman
of tho committee on naval affairs by
which the bill was reported and he
I advocated two ships as in the Inter
est of an adequate navy He said thnt
when the Panama canal was com
pleted all tho vessels of the navy
would be available on either coast
He controverted tho contention of
Senators Hale and Clay that the pro
posed ships would cost lC000Oi10
each saying that the highest offi
cial estimate ho had been able to ills
cover was less than 12000000 each
Agreeing with Mr Perkins that the
ships would not coat so much as Mr
Hale had estimated Senator Lodge
admitted that the cost would ho
heavy Still he contended that tho
proposed Increase of the navy should
h f made because of the necessity for
the malntcjiajjcc oC aua y iuftldtiiiL
to protect America interests Ho
took the position that a strong navy
was necessary for the prevention of
trouble1 The navy was the last place
to begin to economize he said
