Tho racing was entirely frco from ac

Tax Collector Charged "With
-Getting $25,000 to Cut
Up With Council
Millionaire Bankers ' Scored
for Part Played in Cor
rupting Councils
PITTSBURG, Pa., April 8. A true
bill charging Max Leslie, collector of
delinquent taxes with bribery, was re
turned by the grand jury today. At the
same time a sweeping presentment was
landed down. General charges aro
made that many of the 230 witnesses
which the grand jury had before it in
'the graft investigation havo wilfully
withheld knowledge of secret graft, and
a few havo been guilty of perjury.
Directors and officials of the six big
banks that profited by the corrupt dc
pository ordinanco aro severely scored
Tho indictment of Leslie follows his
recent acquittaly of tho charge of per
jury in claiming an alibi in. connec
tion with a previous indictment for al
leged bribery. Ho is now charged with
receiving $25,000 from the Columbia
National Bank of Pittsburg on Juno
3, 1908. In tho former indictment the
uato named was Juno G and Leslie
proved he was out of the city at that
It is charged that of the $23,000 he
iwd over $17,300 toW-illiani'-(tt'and to
bribo councilmen.
The indictment season reached such
a complex stage today that even the
grand jurors themselves thought it nee
essary to present a comprehensive ic
view of all work.
They declared most emphatically that
former Councilman Stewart and Cash
ier James Young of the Second Nation
al bank had concealed information from
tho grand jury.
"Wo havo been unable to ascertain
who paid Stewart tho bribo money,
(meaning tho $32,000 charged as furn
ished by tho Friend-Hoffstot pool of
banks) in New York," tho jurors re
ported. "AltliQtigh Stewart met tho man on
at loast two or three occasions and al
though ho knew his name and had sev
eral drinks with him, nevertheless he
sweais ho does not remember his
The grand jury also recommends a
now investigation of the directors of
the Second Na.tional and in specific
terms charges Cashier Young with
shielding Hofl'stot and that for this
reason thoy believe somcono elso con
nected with tho Second National bank
is responsible for this. Tho report made
by tho directors of the Farmers' Na
tional bank in denial of any knowledge
of any payments of any money to bribe
councilmen is criticised.
The validity of contracts under which
tho six favored banks now hold tho
city's money is attacked.
This is important in 'that it shows
how tho banks weic induced to put up
so largo an amount of money for the
boodle fund and is a recommendation
that 0 per cent be collected on city de
posits from these banks from and after
this date. Tho city depository banks
arq now paying 2 per cent on city de
posits and it is alleged that the agree
ment was that tho councilmen were to
get the difference for reducing the per
centage. The presentment says: "Wo desire
to emphatically denounce as public mal
efactors not only the men -who solic
ited the bribes and who held u'p the
banks and influential men of Pitts
burg, but also to denounce for their
part in the city's shame tho bank pres
ident or millionaire who attempts to
cause tho downfall of a poor councilman
who is paid no salary for the duties ho
is called upon to perform for the bene
fit of the public."
In conclusion tho presentment dis
closes that tho bank ordinance and the
ordinanco vacating South Seventh
street were not the Only pieces of cor
rupt councilmanic legislation. Tho jur
ors 'openly state that $11,500 in bribes
was paid for the vacating of Homo
street, but no indictments will be re
turned becau'so tho statuto of limita
tions applies.
In tho section of the presentment
that deals with this it is declared that
Sam Heppcnstall and C. W. Hcppenstall,
two prominent business men of this
city, each paid bribes to Charles Stew
art, tho former a payment of $10,000
and, the latter $1,500.

One of Principals Dead and Youthful Antagonist Has
Fled to Canada Bad Blood Had Existed and
Pact Made to End With Gloves
PASSAIC, N. J., April S. Gilbert Trehou died tonight from a
solar plexus blow-received in a schoolboys' prize fight Tuesday night,
and with brief intermissions had been unconscious sinco lifted out of
the rinp and carried to a hospital.
Frank Koiser, named in tho warrant as the other principal, is said
to havo iled to Canada.
Henry Kanackstedt, superintendent of tho Presbyterian Sunday
school, who is said to have acted as a referee, was arrested yesterday
and released on $500 bail.
Trehou and Koiser, both aged 19, were pupils in tho Passaic
high school and both of good mmilies. The police learn there had
been bad blood between them, and they agreed to settle their differ
ences with the gloves. Both went into training last Monday, and de
clared themselves fit. ,
.The word was passed among their friends Tuesday night and a
small crowd met in a vacant lot behind an oil tank and squared off a
ling. Lanterns were hung on ropes, seconds chosen, a referee named
and also a timekeeper.
Tho hat was passed for a purse for the winner and the collection
given to a stakeholder.
It was a prize fight with all tho formalities of the code. Tho boys
stripped and went at it, hammer and tongs. According to witnesses,
in the seventh and fatal round, Koiser caught Trehou flush on the jaw
with a heavy swing. Trehou staggered and before ho got to his feet
again, Keiser shot a body punch just below tho end of tho sterum.
Trehou went down and lay groaning. Tho referee counted ten, but
the boy still lay flat.
The crowd realized that something was wrong and began to melt
away in tho darkness. Ono of Trehou 's seconds and tho timekeeper
stuck by him and when they could not rcvivo him, carried him to a
Yestorday all of the officials and tho group of spectators, making
twentv-ono in all, wero arrested and released on $500 bail.

company, is responsible for the discov
ery of a $17,000 coal graft in which
tho Claypool and English hotels, two

Ex-President Continues Si
lent Regarding Every
thing Political
GENOA, Italy, April 8. Noisy dem
onstrations and over-cordial welcomes
everywhere they went resulted in the
abrupt ending of the second honeymoon
of Colonel and Mrs. Roosevelt twenty
four hours before scheduled.
They have abandoned tho plan to re
trace by easy stages their roneymoon
drive from Spezia to Genoa to avoid
tho constantly growing demonstrations.
At every village along the route they
met crowds of men, women and children
waving flags. Sentiment retreated and
finally capitulated today when six hun
dred men and women surrounded them
at Rapolla, causing much embarrass
ment, and Roosevelt forthwith deter
mined to abruptly end tho journey. The
people of Genoa greeted their arrival
here with tho acclaim born of their
romantic natu'res stirred by the colo
nel's sentimental journey. He said he
had enjoyed the trip hugely, despite
the embarrassments. "We had a bully
time," said Roosevelt.
The inhabitants of Porto Maurizio
had planned elaborate festivities in
honor of the ox-president, but the chief
interest of the three days' stay at
Carew Villa will be the visit there
Monday of Pinchot.
It is already certain, however, that
the visit of Pinchot will not be followed
by any of tho sensational developments
evidently expected in some .quarters.
Roosevelt has announced in advance
that he will have nothing to say after
the interview.
He continues to maintain silence on
political affairs. Ho kept an open mind
while being informed of the events that
have transpired during his absence and
with regard to the present situation at
home. Without bias he has always
been repdy to listen to friend and
Accordingly, Roosevelt willingly ac
ceded to Pinchot 's request for an in
terview. Pinchot is expected to ex-
plain in detail his bide of the series of
events that led to ins dismissal irom
the post of chief forester. In the same
way, Roosevelt expects to seo other
friends, both in Europe and America.
Roosevelt continues to express regret
at the inability of Root to come to
Europe to meet him, as from the senator
he would have been able to obtain a
sympathetic exposition of the adminis
tration's side of affairs.
It is said that by letter and other
wise, since he returned to civilization,
Roosevelt has had from ardent support
ers and admirers a good deal of sharp
criticism of the Taft administration
and is believed also to have received
appeals urging the necessity of his re
entry into the political arena. But
if this is so, Mr. Roosevelt has not
given the slightest intimation of what
impression they have made. He will
have nothing to say concerning politics
until he gets back to America.
Roosevelt relates an amusing incident
of the trip when he and Mrs. Roosevelt
reached the top of Pass Sestri Levante,
where they stopped for the night, when
an enterprising proprietor of a tav
ern, the rival of the one in which he had
engaged rooms, sent out couriers in
advnnco bearing American and Italian
(lags, and triumphantly escorted Colo
nel and Mrs. Roosevelt to his own hotel.

PITTSBURG, Pa., April 8. Rupert
Ernest, aged 14, a pupil in tho public
school at Tu'rtlo Creek, a suburb of

Little Events Like Passing
Lie Give Interest to Bal-
liuger Hearing
Says Much of the Product Is
Worth Only Half a Cent
per Ton
WASHINGTON, D. C, April 8. Tho
Ballingcr-Pinchot investigation dragged
along wearisomely today with more tes
timony about tho alleged discovery of
the twenty-four missing letters among
Glavis' effects that had been left in
the federal building at Seattle.
The "defense" evidently is laying
great store by this discovery and the
hearing for the last threo or four ses
sions has been given over almost en
tirely to this subject. A mass of doc
umentary evidence was put in while
Andrew Christensen, Glavis' succes
sor as chief of the field division at
Seattle, was on the stand.
Attorney Brandcis of the "prosecu
tion" was admonished concerning his
method of cross examination by Sena
tor Sutherland.
Alfred II. Brooks, mineral expert of
the geological survey, took the stand
late in the day to testify regardipg
the value and extent of the coal re
sources of Alaska. It is evident from
his statement of the case that tho value
of the coal fields is generally overes
timated. Brooks said the coal in tho
Katalla field," where the Cunningham
claims are .located, is probably not
worth more than half a cent per ton.
Christiansen, who succeeded Glavis,
told of the search among Glavis' ef
fects in the federal building in Seattle,
and his account coincided with that of
Assistant Custodian O'Neill.
The witness was then turned over to
Brandcis for cross examination.-
"When you telegraphed Schwartz
February 8 about finding the letters,
you made certain false statements, did
n't you?" asked Brandcis
"1 didn't," flared back the witness.
"The only thing I said in the telegram
that was a mistake was that the box
in which the papers were fou'nd was
broken open. As a matter of fact, the
top of the box was loose. The tele
gram was prepared in a hurry. We
broke open several other boxes. It is
easy to mako a mistake like that."
"It's easy to lie,", shouted Brandcis.
Senator Sutherland protested against
this, saying it was not only offensive
to the witness, but to the committee
as well.
Vertrees said lie desired to protest
generally against Brandeis' methods
with witnesses. Christensen was there
upon excused and Alfred Brooks, min
eral expert "of the geological survey,
called to tho Stand to testify as to
coal conditions in Alaska.
Brooks said there is known tp be
12,000 square miles of coal-bearing
rocks, but only about one-tenth of the
coal area is known to bo underlaid with
coal seams.
Brooks declared that if the Alaska
fields were opened it would mean a sav
ing to the navy of at least half a mil
lion a year.
"Alaska is retrogressing," said
Brooks. "The people are becoming dis
couraged and leaving. This is largely
due to the coal situation. Without
coal theer can be no railroads and with
out railroads there can be no business
to speak of."
Up to this time, the witness declared,
that f the visible coal supply of
the United States there had been mii
sumed only an amount equal to four
tenths of one per cent lcaing 90 0 l'
yet to be mined. "
Armed Men Sent to Protect
Colorado Mines
DENVER, Colo., April 8. Steps to

Colorado fields were taken today when
armed men were sent to protect the
properties at Louisville and La Fay

spread five thousand circulars appea -ing
to their former employes to return.
The operators state that tho mines will
be conducted on the "open shop" plan.
