FORTY-FOURTH YEAR SANDUSKY, OHIO, TUESDAY JUNE 6, 1911, LAST EDITION NUMBER 204 CONTINUES STORY OF BOODLE MESS 1 Representative Evans Still Bef ore Grand Jury And Many More Indictments Are Promised As tor Pomerene Given Credit for Confession. COLUMBUS, 0., June Owen J. Evans, who was yes terday fined for bribery, and who put in the entire afternoon before the grand jury confessing, this morning resumed his testimony before that body and indications are that he will not be through before night As a result of his revelations, Piosecutor Turner declared today that not only will all of the legislators now under indictment be convicted but that a large number'more will be indicted. No report of the grand jury is expected today, although several Indictments have been and are ready for presentation to the court. Late this afternoon Evans was Btili hefor-e the grand jury telling his story and from present indica- tions he will not complete testimony Nfore ]ate Wednesday or .possibly Thursday. The giand jury only fn session until about 11 o'clock this morning, adjourning m oider to give Evans the opportunity of securing some data to back tip his testimony. Information fiom the grand jury room as to what is going on is very meager and everything is being caie- fully guarded. Enough information is leaking out, however, to verify the prediction that Evans is telling a story that will develop into a sensa- tional report by the giand jury and another batch of certain to follow indictments seems The bomb has burst, and the bits of four exploded, and they withheld action un- til after Evans could tell his story be- fore the Evans happened to be in the couit room when the indict- ment was returned, and after plead- ing guilty, asked to be led to the grand jury room where he would un fold a tale of graft and bribery that would make the entire state blush with shame, and put the Lonmer in- vestigation as a tiny microbe, com- pared with the brazenness of the man- ner in which the solons carried on their open demands during the re- cent session Just how long the grand jury TV ill now be in session it is hard to say, but it is certain that most oP the week will he taken up in the cause.

S. M. S. Ry. Co. are coming nearer together m an agreement for the abolishment of grade crossings in Sandusky. Monday night at the meeting of the city council the two sides wrestled over the proposition a- gam and today all impediments to an agreement have been elimin- ated save one. The one question which now stands in the way of submitt ng the question to a vote of tne people is, "Shall the Camp street crossing be included along with Columbus and Hayes ave- nues m the five year agreement by which the L.

So with the confes- sion of guilty Evans gives up his place in the legislature, with a vouch- er in his pocket for for next year, a period of time in which he will have been carrying the title "ex" and "former representative" long enough to have become thoroughly familiar it It is remarkable, yet true, that when it became known that Mr. Evans was to make a confession, he was offered all kinds of financial aid fiori high scources, state officials, brewery in- terests, and from other sources that when it became known caused genu- ine surprise. His attorney indicated this in court and was commended by Judge Kmkeacl. Mr Evans first gave as his excuse for pleading guilty that he was not able to employ attorneys to fight the charges against him Another reason was that the delay of the trial would only go IG further hasten the end of the eartlu.r career of his aged lather who, it is said, near death's door, but when the truth became known, it was made plain that the credit for the confes- sion must be given to United States Senator Atlee Pomerene, a friend of years, and a neighbor of Evans' over in Stark comity Pomerene used ev- ery possible influence to beai upon Evans to have him make a clean breast of it, but not until Pomerene himself had learned the guilt of Evans did he succeed m his plead- ings. the priesthood and the silver jubilee of the three additional crossings.

They took up a position on the top of the first express car and defied members of the train crew to put them off. According to the stories told here, the men fired three shots at the men in the engine cab. No one dared approach the men who were- beating their way wild-west fashion. When the train reached Sandusky no word of the situation had preceded it and consequently there was but police officer at the station. The Ions officer was Patrolman Ringholz, to w horn was reported the fact that the men were on top of the car and defy- ing the crew. Ringholz was unable to get any si stance from trainmen or others standing arotind and started up tha ladder on the siderof the express car. As he was nearing the the two men stood over him and, pointing re- volvers at him, threatened to to kill. Ringholz was game, how- ever, and continued on his way it was the train riders who "were "bluffed." They scrambled to the oth- er side of the roof and as Ringholz clambered to the top of the ladder they leaped from the top of the car and with threats to shoot anyone who followed, ran rapidly away and dis- appeared in the darkness of the rail- road yards. Patrolman Ringholz hurried down the ladder but could find no trace of the men. Then word was sent to the central station and the police net set but no arrests were made. Clean-up of Undesirables. Twenty-two strangers of all ages and alleged occupations, rounded up Monday night under a general clean- up under the direction of Police Cap- tain Kennedj, faced Mayor Lehrer in police court Tuesday morning on vag- rancy and loitering charges: Each man was fined and given a ten days' jail sentence. The wholesale raids on railroad yards, dacks and other loitering places resulted from the desire1 or the police department to make a clean-up and to keep the city as free from undesir- ables as is possible. The advent of each excursion season brings hun- dreds of vagrants and other suspic- ious characters to the city and the police decided to take the situation in hand without delay. It is believ-ed that much disorder attendant each summer can be alleviated by prompt and decishe action. The police will continue to make arrests of all strangers without visible means of support who attempt to mako Sandusky their headquarters.

The congressionaj committee's inquiry into the methods of the steel trust is making public the inside history of the great corporation. Chairman Elbert H. Gary testified that Elihu Root, when secretary ot state, advised President Roosevelt that the absorption of the Tennessee Coal Iron Co by the IT. S.
