The cli max promised in the Pittsburg graft ex posure, oiiino as promised Into today with tlio presentment of a lengthy grand jury report recommending the. indict ment of Frank Hostott, president "10 Pressed Steel Car company, and ono of the most prominent business men in the country. Simultaneously in open court came a plea of Krall Winter, president of the Workingmcn's Savings & Trust com pany, that ho had no defenso to ninko in the charge that ho gave a $20,000 bribe to former Councilman Morris Kin stein. Tho following is briefly some of the most startling findings in tho grand jury presentment: That Frank Hoffstott, president of tho Pressed Steel Car company, and president of the German National Hank, of Allegheny, and prominently identi fied with othor banks, paid to Charles Stewart, a former select councilman, $52,000. That tho money wns a bribe used in influencing tho votes of councllmen to lass nn ordinance, naming threo banks in which UofTstott wns interested as of ficial depositaries of the city's millions. That tho arrangement for tho pay ment of monoy to Stcwait was mndo in tho spring of 11)08, and the lato Jamos Friend, at that timo an oflicinl of tho Pressed Stool Car company, was nn as sociate in tlio transaction. Tried to Hire Blakeley That tho original plan that Friond had was to obtain tho sorviccs of Will iam Blakeley, then a practicing attor ney, but now the district attorney in chargo of tho graft prosecution, as a stakeholder of tho bribe monoy, until tho ordinnnco had passed. That Dlakoly declined to act in tho capacity named, and warned all parties of tho criminality of tlio proposition, and of tho liabilit yto prosecution if it went further. That subsequent to Blakoly's refusal, Friend and UofTstott completed an ar rangement with Stewart whereby UofT stott would pay, or causo to bo paid, to Stewart, $52,500. That tho transaction was arranged to bo inn'do in Now York nnd took placo there in June, 1008, in order, if possible, to avoid criminal liability in Allegheny county. 'Hint UofTstott nlso solicited and so cured from James Young, cashier of tho becoiul National bank of Pittsbure. $21,000 to bo paid Stewart to insure the (election ot tins second National as ono of the favored depositaries. Stowart Asked Bribe That Stowart did demand fiom tho now deccascn Friend, who was acting ngnt lor tho second Nntional, a bribo for Stewart's voto in favor of the bank ordinances. Tho banks named as ultimate princi pals to profit by the' or.oes nlleged to have- been paid by UofTstott to Stowart, nro: Tlio Farmers' Deposit National. Tho Second National.

In addition to these, tho Columbia National of i ittsburg, tho German Na tional, and tho Workingmcn's Savings Trust company of Allcghony, wcro named as city depositaries in tho or dinance passed over tho mayor's veto. Tho plea of nolle eontendre, mndo by Winter of tho Workingmcn's, wns no less n sensation than tho report of tho grand jury. Ho was charged with tho payment of a $20,000 bribcN to Kinstcin, former select councilman. When Win ter appeared in court, Judge Fraser, who is presiding in tho graft cases, asked to bo excused from hearing tho plea. Judgo Fraser explained that on account of his long and intimato friend ship with Mr. Winter, ho wished to have nothing to do with tho case. Win ter wns taken befon. Judges Carnivan and Swearingcn, and entered tho formal plea. Sentence was postponed. HofTstot, as president of tho Prosscd Steel Car company, ono of tho largest industries in tho country, recently fig ured prominently in tho public eyo while a striko was on at his plant "in McKeo's Rocks. During tho long months of suspension there were many riots, many persons were killed nnd tho state troops were called out. The reference to the alleged p'an to havo Blakeley act ns a stakeholder, is as brief in tho report of tho grnnd jury as it is in, tlio. abstract given above, and tho district attorney tonight would not comment lor publication upon it. Tho court ordored indictments drawn against Iloffstot, in nccordanco with tho grand jury's presentment, namely, on two counts of bribery nnd ono of con spiracy to defraud the city. Tho presentment reads that IIofTstot shall-bo ordered to appear as a witness. vand in ease ho does not do so, tho dis trict attorney shall "Proceed forth with to extradito him." Tho presentment concluded with an order that tho investigation continue along the lines already pursued, which is taken to mean that more higher lips nro yet to bo named. Alust boforo Winter's appearance in court,, James Anderson, genoral book keeper for tho Workingmen's, had also pleaded nollo-contendro to tho charge of falsifying tho books of tho bank in connection with tho payment of $20, 000 to Einstein. Tho pleas of Winter and Andorson camo opportunely, ns tlio district attorney said that otherwise they wcro to havo beon indicted today. Anderson, who for twenty years has been privato secretary to Winter, is charged with having cut from the bank's ledger several pages of "spec ial accou'nts" of Emil Winter" nnd Mrs. Winter.

L. Naquin at Bioad and Cedar streets lato yesterday afternoon, Harry Tem ple, tho seventeen-year-old son of Night watchman Teinplo of the Arizona East ern railway, was seriously, possibly fat ally, injured. Knocked from his machine by tho forco of the impact, Tomple was drag ged twenty feet by Naquin 's itutonio bile, and run over by both wheels of ono side of tho machine. Two ribs were fractured. Whether or not inter nal injuries were sustained by tlio young man could not bo told by the ex amining physicians last night and tho full extent of his ininrlns will m-nli. ably not be known for several days. In the opinion of those who witnessed tlio accident, Naquin was not responsi ble for the accident, tho collision oc curing when both the automobile and tho motorcycle turned in tho same di rection at tho Trust building coiner. Naquin, with a party of friends, was running north on Broad street, comin? from tho furniture warehouse .In South Globe. ' Temp'le'was 'riding down Cedar street, toward Broad. Both machines wero traveling at a fairly coed" rate of speed. Tho Trust building shift off the view of the drivers of both ma chines. As Nnquin approached Cedar street, he saw Templo coining down Cedar street toward him. Tho young man was apparently looking at the mechanism of thoninchiue, spectators say, nnd did not notice tho approach of tho automobile. As Temple apparently intended turn ing south on Broad, Naquin turned his machine to the left, to give him a chance to pass between the automobilo and the Trust building curb. Temple, at tho same time, turned to go on the outside of tho automobile. Before -ho could alter the direction of the motor cycle, the two machines camo together with a crash. Temple .as thrown from tho machine against the front of the automobile. Naquin applied the emergency brakes, but not quick enough to bring tho car Wi a standstill until it hud traveled moro -than twenty feet. Teinplo was dingged nearly this distance, before he fell from the projecting parts of the automobile. Two wheels passed com pletely over his chest and abdomen. Bruised, bleeding and unconscious), ho was carried to tho offices of Doctors Wales and McPhecters, in the Trust building, where lie was given medical attention. An examination disclosed the fact that two ribs had been frac turcd and that possible internal injur ies had been sustained. Tlio -oung ian was given all possible assistance anil later m the evening, when fio re covered consciousness, ho was removed to his home. M. L. Naquin, who was driving the machine, deeply regrets the unfortunate occurrence, although ho is not blamed for tho affair by Harry Temple, father ot the injured youth. Nnquin stated after the accident that he did everything within his power to aveit the collision, steering his ma chine in a way which he thought would give, Templo ample space in which to pass in safety. Bo attributes the acci dent to tho unfortunate misunderstand ing between him nnd Temple, with le gard to which way they were to turn out. , Interviewed after the accidct, Tem plo "had no word of censure for Naquin, having questioned a number of wit nesses to tho unfortunato affair and learning all possible details after tho accident. He is of tho opinion, how ever, that all motor vehicles shou'ld be further limited in speed in the down town district. Temple is well known in this city, having been raised here and been em ployed by a number of business houses. At tho timo of the accident, ho was in tho employ of the Dominion hotel. Tho motorcycle which he was riding had been purchased only a few weeks ago. Early this morning it was reported that Templo was resting fairly easily at his home. WEATHER BULLETIN WASHINGTON, D. C.

STAGE OF Part'' of Bogus Millionaires Played Long Engagement to Fleece Victim BOGUS ROGERS WAS PARTY TO FLEECING Let Piking Dupe llokl Great Sum of Money in Plan to Dazzle Him NEW YORK, April G. For lavish stage setting, workmanlike execution and ample financing, tho story of a rac ing swindle as told to the police tonight by Henry Wagner, senior member of a firm of billiard tablo manufacturers, has no equal in tho annals of the New York police' bureau. To obtain $10,000 the confidclfce men entrusted their dupe with $100,000 in cash, hired a privato car from Balti more to Jacksonville, Fla., and imper sonated successfully a party of million aires, one of whom was "II. II. Rogers, Jr., son of tho late president of tho Standard Oil company." Tho story came 01ft tonight with the arrest of a man who gave his name as John Brown, 6S years old, and de scribed himself ns a broker and spec ulator, but who, Bay the police-, is George Roekwel, alias George Ham mond, alias Old Joe Eeaton,n notorious confidence man. Last month Wugncr met a man rep resenting himself to bo Alfred Sanford, privato secretary to a Pennsylvania millionaire, with monoy to spend on coal lands. Would Wagner take an op tion on 2,000 acres at $7 per acre? He would sell at a huge profit. The secretary lacked funds to finance the deal himself, but if it went through, he asked only 2.3 per cent for the tip. A trip to Baltimore followed, where entered tho "millionaires," including "II. II. Rogers, Jr.," "Colonel Mof- fatt" of Colorado, one Palmer and one Marshall. From Baltimore the entire party journeyed to Jacksonville by a private car all on tho "millionaires" and at a raco track there was heavy bet ting "between friends." in which the victim was not asked to join. Instead, his confidence was soothed by being made stakeholder, until at one time he held $100,000. His draft for $10,000 was obligingly cashed and lie generously loaned $10,000 to one crowd to fill out a bet of $20,000. Then came the get away. Wagner said that the Brown arrest ed tonight looked the part of Moffatt. When searched, $2,701 in bills was found strapped around Brown's waist. "That guy thought ho was in for something soft," said Brown. "Ho thou'ght he was in for some of that $160,000 and when he did not get it, got sore."

Tho scries of events connected wun the cancellation of Roosevelt's audience with the pope and his later repudiation of the denuncia tory statement of Pastor tppie of the Methodist Church of Rome, added in terest to tho dinner given in Roose velt's honor tonight in tho great hall of the historic capitolic Palace, over which Mayor Nathan presided. No reference", however, either direct ly or indirectly was made td this sub ject. alio mayor, in proposing tho health of the ox-president, referred to him ns "one whoso character and work had an effect upon tnc civil progress of hu manity." He concluded with nn apostrophe to Roosevelt as tno "lighting philoso pher," who is preaching a word of purity, goodness and duty to his people, and compared the ex-president to Mar cus Aureiius. , Roosevelt, replying, said he was an optimist concerning the future. Ovation on -.leaving Tho. ex-president and Mrs. Roosevelt left for .Spezzia at midnightl Several hundred gathered about the. train and took part in an enthusiastic, demonstration. Tno distinguished American was warmly cheered. Roosevelt was obliged to come out on the platform of tho special car placed at his uisposal y the government and express thanks to the peoplo of Rome for their generous an unforgettable hospitality. . Among Roosevelt's telegrams today were two from well knowii Catholic publishers, declaring that Catholic opin ion in America endorsed his position. Roosevelt also received visitors and letters from tho .iethodist organization in Rome, disavowing sympathy with the views contained in Rev. 'upple's recent statement. Attitude of Vatican The Vatican today made further rep resentations regarding the cancellation of the audience, but they contained no new points. The Vatican insisted es pecially that Cardinal Merry Del Vol's sole purpose was to avoid, if possible, a repetition of the Fairbanks incident, in the belief that he could have been juftly criticised it a repetition of this had occurred and no previous warn-, ing given. Before leaving Rome, Ex-President Roosevelt had reason to believe that a great triumph was his, as the attitude toward him and the statement of the Methodists, which he had condemned, were repudiated by tho leading adher ents of these two institutions. Roosevelt Congratulated Abbot Lawrence Janscns, one of tho most learned Benedictines, and secre tary of the Congregation of Affairs of Religions, called on Mr. Roosevelt this evening and, not finding him, left his card, on which he "wrote in French that he desired to congratulate him for the constant support given to his order and the Catholic church in general in Amor ica during Mr. Roosevelt s "glorious career" as president, which he hoped soon would bo resinned. . At the same time, Mr. Roosevelt received letters from relatives of high prelates and cardinals, condemning what they styled the "personal att. tudo of Cardinal Merry jjc Val. for which neither the pope nor tho Catholic church was responsible." Methodists Not Responsible On the other hand, Mr. Roosevelt re ceived tho following letter from Dr Walling Clark, head of tho Methodist organization in Italy: "Tho incident connected with tho article written by the Rev. B. M. Tip ple for the American press, has caused me untold regrer. 1 was not aware that the article was written or sent un til Tuesday afternoon, when it was brought to me by a newspaper cor respondent with the statement which you gave out Tuesday morning. "If I had known Mr. Tipple's inten tions, I certainly should nave used all mv influence to prevent it. Let mo as sure you the Methodists of Rome were not responsible lor the article. Allow mo once more to express my admiration for tho courageous position you ha taken in the face of the demands of the Vatican. Methodists of Rome will not forget."
