My Dear Senator: Replying to your favor of the 23th, it gives me pleasure to hand you here with certificate of deposit for $50,000, in accordance with our understand ings. Your letter states the condi tions correctly, and I trust the trans action will be successfully consuinmat ed. Very truly yours, JNO. D. AJtCHBOLD. J. B. Foraker, Washington, D C. Hon. SUUDENTS WOULD CONTROL ATHLETICS Vote at Y. M. C. A. "Stag' Party Shows What the Sentiment Is. WASHINGTON', Sept. 21. The Inter national Congress on tuberculosis con vened here today, and will remain in ses sion until Oct. 12. A voluminous report has been prepared by both the Missouri Association for the Kelief and Contiol of Tuberculosis and the St. Louis Society for the Relief and Prevention of Tuberculosis, and will be presented during the sessions. Both associations arc allied with the national organization and have taken leading part in the world-wide fight to prevent the spread of the disease and to relieve the sufferers. Much good has been done in the last year, and plans for the future embraces a campaign upon broader lines. Through legislation, literature and actual work among persons who have the disease, it is hoped to bring about a greater success, although the two societies believe, and show in their reports, that a great work already has been done. Progress has been hampered by lack of funds and need of legislation among other things, and it is to overcome these obstacles that the coming year's work will be carried on. Since the first meeting of the State So ciety at Jefferson City, May 13, 1907, nine counties have been organized into subsidiary organizations, and applica tions for membership have been received for nineteen other counties. A traveling exhibit is planned, and at the next ses sion of the Legislature laws will be asked to help in the further spread of the plague. ST. JOSEPH GETS In an interview at Washington Sat urday, W. C. Haskell, Sealer of Weights and Measures for the District of Colum bia, said: "Gov. Haskell is evidently mis taken. I never bad any connection with the Standard Oil Co. nor any of its of ficers, either in a business or social way, and I have never had the pleasure of the acquaintance of any of the officials or members of the Standard Oil Co. I do not recall ever having a case involv ing the Standard Oil Co. while I held the position of Marshal for the Northern District of Ohio, from 1892 to 1S9G. So rlie Haskell referred to is someone else. I have no idea what Haskell Mr. ncarst referred to." Senator Foraker, who is in Cincin nati, has issued the following state ment: "The production by Mr. Hearst of the letter of Mr. Archliold to me, dated Jan uary 29, 1902, referring to a certificate of deposit inclosed for $30,000 and ex pressing the hope that the transaction may be satisfactorily concluded, illus trates how unreliable is an indication of how easily appearances may deceive. 'When I first read the letter 1 could not recall that I had ever received any such letter and any such certificate. I at once called un mv house in Wash ington, where my letters of that date are on tile, and had a search made. with the result that a proposed trans action was recalled that had gone en tirely out of my mind. Foraker in Denial. 20 Broadway, New York, February 25, 1902. My Dear Senator: I venture to write you a word re garding the bill introduced by Senator Jones of Arkansas, known as S. 049, intended to amend the act "to protect trade and commerce against unlawful restraints ami monopolies, etc., in troduced by him December 4. It really seems as though this bill is very unnecessarily severe and even vicious. Is it not much better to test the application of the Sherman Act liefore resorting to a measure of this kind? I hope you will feel so about it, and I will lie greatly pleased to have a word from you on the sub ject. The bill is, I believe, still in committee. With kind regards, Very truly yours. JNO. D. ARCHBOLD. Hon. J. B. Foraker, Washington, D. C. Oil Company was set forth in my state ment published yesterday, as advisory council with respect to their affairs in Ohio. MONNETT DETAILS EFFORTS TO BRIBE MUM T If the vote east at the annual "stag"' party of the Young Men's Christian Association be taken as a criterion, students of the University of Mis-ouri favor remoing all faculty control from the management of athletic activities and placing it altogether in the hands of the students. Two hundred ballots were cast, and 130 of them favored exclushe student control of all the athletics of the University. Six bundled students attended the social, held Friday evening in the cor ridors of Academic Hall. Two barrels of r.pph's disappeared rapidly. There was lemonade, too. in plenty. Dr. A. Ross Hill, president of the University, made an address, welcoming the new students to the University. He was heartily applauded. The uning was done strictly in ac cordance with the Australian ballot syMfin. There was only one precinct, and hence not as many votes were cast as had liven expected. The booth was eouir4t-l in lornvt style, with tables f"i the Midges and clerks. Challengers o 1 I Mne work in stopping repeat- i crs A lew lipped by but S.

Ballots were of two kinds, one for the "Freshman Party" and another for the 'Other Part v."'" Troops, .5,000 Strong, Will Assemble There During Coming Week. ST, JOSEPH, Sept. 21. The War De partment has ordered 5,000 troops to assemble at St. Joseph. Mo., next week, for the purpose of holding a military tournament. This is done as a diver sion from routine life in the forts, as well as to give the public a chance to see the soldiers of this country. The carnival or tournament is na tional in its character. It is managed and directed exclusively by the War Department, as the Government will not lend or hire its soldiers to private or municipal amusement enterprises. The first and experimental effort of the War Department at assembling of troops, representing all branches of the service foi tournament purposes was made last ear, when 3,000 men were ordered to St. Joseph. The beneficial effect of the first tournament upon the troops was so ap parent at once, and the public was so well pleased with the opportunity to be come letter acquainted with its fighting forces, that the War Department decided on another tournament for this vear. "A friend of mine, a newspaper man. informed me that he held an option on the Ohio State Journal to purchase it, according to my present recollection, for $135,000. He was able himself to ad vance but a small amount of this pur chase price. He applied to me to help him. I did not have enough monev to le of very material assistance, but for the sake of having the paper in friendly hands, I was willing to advance part of it. I applied to a number of friends to see if they would not make up the bal ance of the amount. Among others I ap plied to the Standard Oil Company." "They agreed to loan to the newspaper company, when purchased and reorgan ized, $350,000, according to my present recollection, the same to be secured by stock of the newspaper company. Some body who was expected to go into the enterprise dropped out, and that made it necessary for all the others to increase the amounts they were proposing to ad vance. At the request of my friend, I asked the different parties to increase their advances,and thereupon the Stand ard Oil Company did accordingly in crease their amount from $35,000 to $50, 000, and sent me the letter with certifi cate inclosed as stated. COLUMBUS, O., Sept. 21. Frank S. Monnctt, who was Attornev-Gencral of Ohio from 1S90 to 1900, today told how he was offeied a bribe of $400,000 while he was in office by a man who said he leprcsenfed the Standard Oil Co. He was to receive this sum, he was prom ised, if he would drop the ouster suits against Standard Oil. Soon after he re tired from office, these suits were dropped. He savagely denounced Senator For aker, and specifically mentioned C. N. Haskell, treasurer of the Democratic National Committee, among the men who were alleged by the go-between as being responsible for the management of the bribe negotiations. "In January, 1S09, I stopped at the Arlington Hotel in Washington,' said Mr. Monnctt. '"One day I found a card in my box from Senator Foraker, ask ing me to call at his home on Sixteenth street. 1 called, and after passing social exchanges with members of the familv. I was taken into his library and he pro duced certified copies of my petitions in the Standard Oil ouster cases in Ohio. TO SELL THEATER OCT. 12 Sheriff Sets Date for Auction Columbia Playhouse. ' of Sheriff Rothuell of Boone county has set Oct. 12 as the date of public sale of the Columbia Theater, in satisfac tion of notes against the Garth-Stone Theater Co.. owners of the property. The sale will be held on the front; steps of the courthouse, during the term of the Boone count v circuit court. Says He Returned Draft. "It was thought at that time the transaction would be immediately closed, but there was a delay of a few days, and at the end of that de lay the whole transaction fell to the ground! because other people stepped in and purchased the property. Thereupon I returned the draft to the Standard Oil Company. I had no em ployment in the matter and never de rived a cent of profit from it and nev er made any charge on account of it to anyliody. ,-I do not remember to have re ceived the letter relating to the bill introduced by Senator Jones of Arkan sas, but whether I received such a letter or not. it had no reference to any em ployment of any kind from the Stand ard Oil Company, or anybody else, nor did the letters about Smith Bennett and Judge Burkett, read bv Mr. Hearst at Columbus, have any reference to anv employment. I favored the nomination of Mr. Bennett, notwithstanding Mr. Archbold's objection to him, and would have favored Judge Burkett's nomina tion if had not heard from Mr. Arch- bold. I can only repeat that the only em- Told of Standard's Power. "As he laid them down he told me that he was an attorney for the com pany. I at first discussed the impropri ety and danger of his representing the trusts, criminal and civil violators of the laws of his own state, as long as he. as well as myself, should bo interested in the welfare of the people of Ohio. "He told me that he never allowed his law practice to interfere with politics or his politics with his law practice, and ulded that he was judgy of ethics of our profession. He then took up the cause of action against these companies and reminded me of the great power, financially and politically, of the Stan dard Oil crowd. "After talking a short time he asked me to have the proceedings delayed in order to accommodate him I firmly de clined to concede any time whatever and told him so. He recalled the great power of the Oil Trust to anyone opposed to it. Squires' Telegram. "After that interview wc dealt at arm's length and not as political allies. I received at the same time while in Washington, I think possibly the next day, a telegram from C. B. Squires, at Cleveland, in which he said: 'Make no agreement with anvone in Washin"ton about important business matter until I can see you.' Got Telephone Message. "I did not understand this telegram, and when I returned to Columbus I was called up by telephone from Cleveland by this same Mr. Squires and he told me that he was sick in bed and would come down and sec me at my office ! just as soon as he could, and that I should not deal with anyone cle until ' he could sec inc. He stated in that tele- i phone message that he had wired me for fear that I would compromise the i Standard Oil case ponding in the Su-j prcme Court and he did not want me to do this until after he had ecn mc. "It was several davs after this tele- lumbus to see me and it was then that he made the proposition that una mVn him, as he claimed, from officials of the "standard Oil Co. He stated at the be ginning that what he said and the prop osition that he made was with the au thority of C. B. Squires, Frank Rocke feller and C. N. Haskell, now Governor of Oklahoma. Areued on Terms. '"He stated that they had all been to his house and agreed upon the terms to 1 offered me and that the proposi tion was telegra- oil or telephoned to New York and received the official O K at 20 Broadway. The conference held at the home of Squires resulted in his being sent to me with -.,.,:: -r ...... .. iiuiusii 1UI1 III $500,000 cash if the suits that were pending in the Supreme Court of Ohio be dropped. - '"Of that amount Squires said he was to receive $100,000 and I was to have the remaining $400,000. He told me in this conversation that Senator Foraker was to see me at Washington, that he had wired me there for fear that I would deal with him, and he did not -want mo to. Defeated by Foraker. '"I was defeated for a renomination by Senator Foraker and his friends and only received S7 votes in the convention out of over 400. I could not bring the cases to trial before my term was ended and the first thing that occurred after John M. Sheets was elected was the dis missal of all the cases against the Stand ard and other oil companies which I had been pushing so hard. "Another imiwrtanl case that wm dropped was that against the American Tobacco Co. In this regard T n.-na tnM a w after my term had expired that a well- unoun attorney had received $10,000 for having the eae continued until after my term had expired. "'Senator Foraker was also the attor ney in this case, but not of record. TTa represented sevc.al trust companies, but was never, to my knowledge, an attor ney of record and never made any plea in any court in which I was prosecuting any of these trusts."
