LVIIL..NO, ,______- MORSE SHIFTS BLAffl FOR BANK VIOLATIONS i on tho Stand He Left AI! the Details of Management to President Curtis. KNEW LITTLE OF BANKING His Own Attention Was Taken Up Entirely with His Outside Inter- Whiting Loan. Charles W. Morse took the stand yes- terday in his own defense, at the elusion of the testimony .in favor of Al- fred H. Curtis, in their trial before the criminal branch the United States Circuit Court for alleged infringement of the National bank laws. Mr. Morse did not g-o far in his testimony, but it was clear that he will .try to shift the responsibility ot. the technical violations Of the law to Mr.- Curtla's shoulders. He protested that he was not a prac- tical banker, and that he rarely looked at any Of the books of" the National Bank of North America other than the dally statement. Hje admitted that he deeply interested in outside -'enter- the two by Mr. prises. The division between defendants was :mphasized Morse's testimony. Earlier in the day it bad come out that jvir. Morse repudiated the loan made, to him by the bank on Oct. 14, to ;take up tho Whiting loan, and directed that 'the collateral car- lied against it should be devoted to the of his other obligations to the 'bank. Mr. Morse was examined- by Mr. Mac- FSariane of his counsel, and began his testimony by stating that he was inter- ested in- the- old State Bank of New York and helped toward its consolidation with the National Bank of North America. "Were you ever employed in the asked. Mr. MacFarlane. you ever had any experience of the routine of you call yourself an experi- enced No, I was never a salaried officer, and any familiarity with the the Na- tional Bank of North America has been tmly as a Director." Knevr' Iiittle of Bnnit's Affairs, The witness said that in December, lOOo 'he controlled 40 per cent, of the stock of the bank. He was, however engaged In outside enterprises, which tooh up almost all ,his attention; "So you had no familiarity with the bookkeeping system, but relied or officers for the conduct of the rou- tine? "I did." What bank documents did you exam- "I used to look at the dally statement, nnd perhaps examined the loan sheet two or three times a, year. I never looked at the journals or ledgers." Mr. Morsq snid that the details of his private business were left to Miss K. A. Wilson and Arthur Braun. -It was Miss Wilson's duty to sign notes for him to keep .his account when it was necessary. Passing-to 1hc 'history of the .American lee Securities Vmivany; the ''witness de- scribed how it to take over the stock of tho operating concern., tho American .Ice! Company, and how the ROCKEFELLERJ-QR TAFT. Not a Man to Rash Ex- periments" or Impede Prosperity. A statement from John D. Rockefeller telling the public that he intends to vote for Taft for President next Tuesday, why he will do so, and why he thinks Mr. Taft should be elected was sent out last night from the. Standard' Oil Company's office, at 20 Broadway. It for Mr. Rockefeller to make known in advance which side he favors in a poetical contest, and for this reason the statement aroused a grea.t of Interest. It was read, with more in- terest, also, because it made known that Mr. .Rockefeller visited his office in the Standard OJ1 Building yesterday. He said in his reminiscences recently: that he had been there only once in fourteen years. Here Is the as given out by the .Standard Oil officials: NEW YOKE, FRIDAY, OCTOBER 30, FRESH TESTIMONY Vendor of the Cleveland Akfcle Wrote It, Stenographers Who Copied It Swear. THEY SAW HIM FINISH IT i "Oct. 29, 1908. "Mi-. John D.- Rockefeller was found this Afternoon at his office on the four- teenth floor of No. 26 Broadway, which I he was visiting after a long and consented to talk upon the Presidential situation. He seemed in good health and condition-and spoke as "follows: It seema to me at this time, when the question is- put directly to any American citizen :which candidate ho will.' support by his ivote for thfc Presidency, he should be manly enough to.'ahswer It just as di- rectly. I therefore say that I expect to cast my vote for William H. Taft, If far no other reason, I. support Mr. Taft because on comparing him uersonally with Mr.-Bryan, his chief opponent, I find the. balance of fitness and temperament en- ti rely on his side. The election of Mr. Taft will, Ii believe, make for law and order and stability of'buslness.

Tho records in evidence were put be- fore him, and lie gave the same account of the closing out of tho Carroll loan 8, 190o, that Mr. Curtis did. He declared that he thought, he had car- ried the ICQ.for Carroll long enough, aYid would make a new loan for the profit of the bank. This led to the making of the first Davison-Brown loan, on which the bank made a, profit, Mr. Morso was asked to explain the Connection between it" "and tho second Pavison-Brown loan, in whica Mrs. K, Gelshecne.n was tho beneficiary. "The samie shares of Ice were used in both he said. "I used to at- tend to Mrs, Gelshe'nen's business affairs ia great part. She sent me to an investment in Ice for her." Mr. MacFarlane. then 'put In evidence a letter from Mrs.- Gelshencn to Mr. Morse, remarking as ho did so: frequently happens with ladles' letters, it bears no This was the letter: Dear Mr Morse: Inclosed is my check for for Ice stock.

Guaranteed Whiting The defense, however, brought out that, although there was .no formal agreement, Mr. Morse had told Mr. Curtis of his Intention of giving the profits of the Whiting loans to the bank, and of guaran- teeing it from all loss. He denied that this .promise was given when the Wvison- Brown and Whiting transactions began, and was sure'that he had' first spoken of it when ho bought Ice stock for' Mr Carroll. He remembered, he said, that the Di- rectors had expressed- their appreciation of his action when it was reported to them, but was hazy as to the details of the Whiting loans. He knew that ha had supplied the Ice shares used to. prdtect! them and that he had given certain Jurofits from the earlier ones to the bank, Continued on 2. question of candidates seems to me P.ec i..rly o. personal one In this cam- n3 the loading orators on both sides .have not gucreoded in drawing party lines, as based on platforms, with a'ny great clear- ness. I do. support tho general Republican position on the tariff and the currency I have always been a Repub- lican. "I feel the moro impelled to answer this question because tt cannot be said that the present Administration. has In any way whatever favored the special interest to which rny life has been devoted. That, however, does not excuse mo from pub- lishing -my opinion and doing I con- eider. r.iy duty, as a citizen." Nothing was added to this statement o Indicate why Rockefeller had dc- artcd from his cupto.m In making his political views public. brought back yesterday from Dayton, Ohio, 'where he had been arrested. He waived extradition, and Detective Fitz- simmons of the District Attorney's office brought him from Ohio. Brandenburg was .taken immediately to Headquarters, where he was photographed and measured and afterwaid lined up with a scoi-e of others to be inspected by the detectives. .When Inspector McCaf- ferty called him forward, he said: This man is accused of selling an ar- ticle to THE. NEW YORK TIMES purporting to have been written by the late Grover Cleveland." Brandenburg was taken before Judge "Foster in General Sessions, where he pleaded not guilty to the'charge. Bail was fixed at which was supplied, through Brandenburg's counsel, Joseph M. Williams, by the American.'Bonding Company of Baltimore. Counsel Ready to Tell. Last night Mri' Williams issued this statement: The authenticity of the Cleveland let- ter is held to have-an important bearing on the campaign, and the American peo- ple are entitled to know all the facts- available as long before election day as possible. Mr. Brandenburg's indictment and arrest have sent the impression broad- cast that the ai'ticle is not authentic. This is wrong. It means only '.that suffi- cient. doubt has been raised to compel him to'prove that.it is genuine. This he will do in two sorts of court' of public opinion and a court >pf law. The one must be tried at once and the other In due course, "His attitude Is that his personal vin- dication ia secondary and of minor im- portance compared -with the establishment of Mr. Cleveland's utterances. Scores of persons.offer evidence'that Mr. Cleveland held the very opinions.expressed. Nearly every person who knows the full facts Is convinced that Mr.; Cleveland wrote the article. The grourid for denying It has never been made public. Not one scintilla of.- evidence against the article, or Mr. Brandenburg, has ever been advanced openly. We have no conception what the grounds for the indictment can be, save opinion-and ex-parte statements, and" Mr. Brandenburg's.' most. important witnesses ne.ver reached the Grand Jury room. "Our first move will be to place this adverse evidence in absolute fairness be- fore the flanked with the sub- stantiations we have to offer. The pub- lic can then judge, and act accordingly. It is time for all politics to be eliminated from this case.. Thus far District At- torney Jerome has.-shown .a-high degree of fairness, though the treatment- ac- corded to Mr. Brandenburg by-Inspector .McCafferty -yesterday at Police Head- quarters was outrageous. I hope .to make a highly Important statement within forty-eight hours. We have a number of letters'and: documents which show an interesting state of in :the background of this movement." Tlie New York World 'will print this morning affidavits by .Miss L. M. Bacon and Miss Madeline Fearon, stenographers, who say that they did the typewriting of jhe disputed. Cleveland article for Mr. Brandenburg on Aug. 10 last, three, weeks before Its publication in THE TIMES, and, robber j of course, several weeks after Mr. Cleve- land's death. 0 Stenographer's Statement, The-affidavit of Miss Bacori says: COUNTRY BANKS WANT CASH. Bryan's Guarantee Plan Darned for Withdrawal of Deposits, Some of the large Wall Street banks having country correspondents in this and other States have noted a demand f6r currency by some of their rural con- nections, which has caused some sur- prise because of the apparent lack of any reason for such a demand. Com- munications which have recently come to some of the banks show that in some cases at least it is due to the agitation for the guarantee bank deposits. This letter, received by one of the largestTSTew York City banks from a correspondent in the upper part of New York the attitude of the banks toward the guarantee plan: We have been, obliged to draw down our balance with your bank for the. reason: that we. have recently been in rieed siderable as you have noticed in our requests for currency. We attribute, need of cash on pur. part to the speeches of .political parties about guaranteeing bank deposits, which' tve believe hurts us. We .hope these speeches will soon come to an end. This agitation has already resulted In .the .withdrawal of from the banks In .this locality by people who are hoarding the money. I expect that with election-over there will be a change for the better. Bankers who have received this and other, similar requests for cash from their, are in a quan- dary as to the point of view of those who have been hoarding cash because of the proposal advocated by the Democratic Party. for .the guaranteeing of bank de- .ppsits. Whether these .withdrawals are based ..on fears on the part of the de- positors in-the" banks that It is unsafe to leave 'their money in banks in which these deposits are not guaranteed, or on the fear that the bank guarantee proposal may be put into effect is the point on which banks here lack information. It is regarded, in banking- circles as a curious outcome of the agita- tion for the guaranteeing of bank .posits that depositors should withdraw their money, from the banks. 1XTEEN PAGES.

Bacon, being duly sworn, says: I reside In the City of New, York, and my place of business is at No. 47 West Thirty, fourth Street, where I have been located since March, 1003. On Aug. 10, 1908, Broughton Brandenburg, known to me aa a writer of mag-azine articles, came to my office at No. 47 ..West Thirty-fourth Street, and said he had some manuscript which he wished to have type- written. He. ordered two carbon-copies In addition to the-origina! copy. When fin- ished the article made nine pages, or a total of about words. To the beat of ray memory it was practically al] in Mr. Brand- enburg's handwriting. .Although this the first work" I had ever done for Mr. Brandenburg, the handwriting the gams as that used in subsequent manuscript which had typewritten for him. I did numerous pieces of work for Mr, Brandenburg during August and early In October, the last order .-being filled on Oct. 8, 1008. Furthermore, when I began typewriting the manuscript, which l' afterward recog- nized as an article entitled Qrox-er Cleve- land on the Campaign and His Prophecy of Its published In THE .NEW TIMKS of Sunday, Aug. 80. 1008, Mr. Bran? denburg had not finished writing it, tut completed the article, seated ai my roll- too desk while I was typewriting tho first portion. Mr. Brandenbere came over to me several read passages ''of tho article to the, Mahd asked, if I did not think they, were In Mr. Cleveland's beet atyje. Ht also asked me If I did not think .that the article would sell weir to a magntlne or newspaper. On account of Mr. hand- writing being difficult to read. I called Mlia M. R. Fearon.-employed In my office. read, to her from the MS. while she did typewriting. Mies Fearon did the 'type- writing for tho last part of the article only. I remember that during the entire which we were working on thU article Mr. Brandenburg appeared rather nervoua did not leave the office except for a few. minutes.

"SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. --with sen- tence a'bout to be parsed upon him E. A. S. Blake, a contractor, convicted of attempting to bribe John M. Kelly to qualify on the jury to try Abraham Ruef and vote, for Ruef's .'.'acquittal, made -a. full confession in court to-day. Blake said that after was arrested on -a charge of bribery Frank J, Mur- phyf Ruef's associate counsel, came to him and promised him if he TVould keep quiet. -He said that notes for 000, purporting be signed by Ruef, were delivered to a third party, to be paid to Blake immediately after he was sen- tenced if he were convicted of bribery. Besides this amount, Blake declared, hih wife was to receive a month while he was in the penitentiary. WhenxBlake was called on to-day to rise and receive sentence his wife cried: No, not that! and began to cry hysterically. She was led from the room. After he had been swqrn and had stated that he had not been promised immunity, s Blake said he had been offered by Attorneys' S. Newburgh and F. J. Mur- phy of Ruef's counsel to influence J. M, a prospective juror, to vite for the acquittal of Ruef. He at first offered Kelly which was refused, he said, but an offer pf was accepted. It was; then brought out in allegations that Newburgh had obtained attorneys for Blake's defense. Blake then told of the alleged offer of and provision for his wife while he was In prison if he '-would not m'ake a confession. The story by Blake created consternation in court, and the. case was continued for- two weeks. In the courthpom of Judge Lawlor just across, the corridor, where attorneys were in the third month of an attempt to get a- jury to try Abraham Ruef and had Jessed twelfth, man, the news of Blake s confession caused consterna- tion to the defense. Ruef paled visibly, but otherwise showed no emotion 'and immediately engaged in a whispered' con- versation with .his attorneys, Henry Ach and Thomas. B. D.osier.
