The Sandusky Star Journal (Newspaper) - June 27, 1911, Sandusky, Ohio TO THE SCHOOL TEACHERS OF OHIO, CONVENING HERE IN ANNUAL SESSION, SANDUSKY TODAY EXTENDS A CORDIAL AND SINCERE WELCOME. THE SANDUSKY STAR-JOURNAL. FORTY-FOURTH YEAR SANDUSKY, OHIO, TUESDAY, JUNE 27, 1911, LAST EDITION NUMBER 222 'rominent New York Banker laid To Be Chief Offender In The Plot 'REMATURE EXPOSURE MAY UPSET THE CASE Two Other Men Who Brought Jewels Through Helen Dwel- le Jenkins to be Held, NEW YORK, June seizure of over a half million dol- lars' worth of jewelry in connec- tion with the Mrs. Helen Dwells Jenkins smuggling case, is mo- mentarily expected, according to District Attorney Wise today. Wise declared today that the evi- dence already secured in the case shows a gigantic plot that extends into several states. According to Richard Parr, the smuggling was made possible by the connivance of a New York banker of great wealth who succeeded in bringing in, free of duty, goods of enormous value. The treasury department does not vsn atempt to guess how much smuggling operations have cost the] government, but it was learned from a reliable source that the frauds will reach into the millions. I powerful was this irnn_ that, priori o The Loeh administration, he was' able to name the officers who were to trunks which contained the smuggled goods Granting that the government's losses urn into the mil- ions, it requires but a rudimentary mowledge of arithmetic to determine hat the goods brought in reached in value tens of millions. The lewels smuggled in for Mis 'enkins were mei ely a few drops "In ,he said Mr Parr "The eal people back of the whole affaii re not the men who sur ceded in ;ettir.g these gems into the 'ree of duty, bat the man v, no .bowed them how to do it We have been on his trail foi over a year and hope to land him in prison. "Because of -the premature expos-, tire cf the Jenkins smuggling plot, i due to bungling on the part ot a pn- j vate detective agency, it is doubtful whethei the government will now be able to gather enough pvidrnce to bring about the indictment of the banker m question. The fedeial grand jury will be as-ked to indict Nathan Allen, multimillionane leath- er manufacturer of Kcnosha, Wis., and John R Colins wealthy coal operator of Nashville, Tenn on the charge of smuggling Mr? Jenkins' gems, but it is fraied that the leal julprit may escape No sione will be left unturned, however, and evi- dence may he developed by the ?rand jury investigation whnh will lead to he arrest ot the man most ed" Information obtained points to the- jfact that not only is this banker Wanted, but that the- authorities he pleased to in- terrogate his wife Toasting by the is said to lerl to pi oof >that she not only knew cf her hus- band's successful effoits to swindle tho goYc'rniacnt, but that she took HEAT AFFECTS LORIMER TOO.

The Senator Haas Unwilling Wit- ness as to Alieced Attempt To Fix Up Story Because of new points brought in the argument to dismiss Rod- ney J. Diegle, and take the case from the Jury these arguments are being continued and tfiere will be no decision in the case until Wednesday morning. The entire morning was spent in arguments and Prosecuting Attorney Turner just began his arguments when court adjourned at noon. He re- sumed his argument art the after- noon session. Attorneys for the defense make the argument that the state is a pontsh- cr of crimes committed, and has not the right to take part in committing a crime unless its agents are just as liable as the men caught. They hold that Diegle cannot be tried because of (Continued On Page SANDUSKY LETTER WRITER. COLUMBUS, O., June letter writer who knows it all is busy in the Diegle case, and dur- ing the past two days as a result of his activity letters containing alleged secret information, some containing threats and others tell- ing the attorneys what to do, have been received not only by tjhe at- torneys in the case but by Judge Kinkead, who is presiding. From Ironton comes a letter which says that the jury is being tampered with, from Sandusky comes one suggesting questions for the neys to ask the witnesses, and from Dayton comes one 'Which vaguely suggested awful things will happen should the accused, Diegle, be found guilty. Of course none of these letters are signed, and little attention is paid to them by either the attorneys, the court or the accused. In the motion for the court to direct a verdict of acquittal after the state had rested, the defense apparently chose to rely upon technical grounds. the fart that if he is guilty of the crime of accepting a bribe the agents of the htate who caused him to com- mit said crime are just as liable. Unusual interest is attached to the ruling of Judge Kinkead in the mat- ter for if he upholds their conten- tions it will affect the indictments against Senators Cetone, Huffman, and Ci aw ford, and their cases will of necessity have to be dropped. Even should Judge Kinfcead re- fuse to nstruct the jury to return a Terdct of "not guil- attornevs for Diegle declare 'he juiy acquit him on the. strength of the note, left by Senator Andrews at the Chibfenden hotel. As this note showed that Andrews had gone to the Neil house first, they de- clare that Piejrle had not 'arranged a bribe for Andiews or he would have told him to which hotel to go. Attorney Matern had three tech- nical grounds on which he asfeed the court to direct a verdict for the de- fendant Diegle He contended that the state was a party to ihe entran- rms; of the three senators and Diegle and that therefore could' not appear as a witness against Diegle, throagh the detectives and the dictagraph.
