North COAL AND TRANSFER, C.O.D. Agreed to Divide Million (CONTINUED FROM PHONT PACE) Dublin, via London, Hay 12. Connelly John McDermott were shot this mor- ning for complicity in the re- bursed and bad obligations totalling The witness admitted lliat a por- tion ol the contract for graze fuses had been let to. companies who were turning them out complete. Asked as to what was the lowest price paid to suh-contractora for the completed fuse, the witness did not care to ans- wer and Chairman Meredith thought it would be "most disastrous" if such inquiry were pressed. Mr. Hellmuth believed that to go into the private agreements of these men with regard to sub-letting would be a tremendous tank and could be accompanied by no good result. The 'American manufacturers had been of great assistance to the Allies. It would not seem that their affairs should be probed to the uttermost. Commissioner Duff held that the question of what influence was brought to bear in securing the con- tract was the real question at issue. WEAK" AND TIRED WOMAN Teils How Vinol Made Her Strong. Lethbridge women who arp weak, run-down and suffer from the conse- quent effects of such a condition, will he interested in Mrs. (Hell's letter. "I ara a farmer's wife and was all run-down, tired, and. suffered from indigestion, "and sometimes it seemed aiT though i could not keep around and do my housework. I had lakfin many medicines without bene- fit. One day I saw Vinol advertised, and made up my mind to try it. I have, taken four bottles and have gained seven pounds In weight, am much stronger, and feel many years young- er titan' before." Sarah Odeli, hock- pon, N. Y. tbe reason Vintil builds np weak, run-down women so (juickiy is be- cause it contains a delicious combi- nation of tho three most successful tonics, peptonate of iron to enrich and revitalize the blood, the strength- creating, body-building elements of fresh cods' livers without oil, and beef peptone. want to say to every weak, run-down, overworked woman in Leth- bridge that we will return your mon- ey if Vinol fails to he'ip you as it did Mrs. OdeJI; J. D. HIginbotham Co., Mr. JohnBton proceeded with cross-eiamination. He asked witness whether the new prlce_ of for graze fuses as against the original ?4.00 was n profitable price. The witness said it- was, hut "not exorbitantly there were "profits and profits he remarked. The witness admitted 1m could hare reduced the price of the fuses by thirty cents each and have made tlie same pro- fits If there had lieen no commission to be paid. Divided Million Commiision Ottawa, May production ot an agreement by which E. B. Cadwell. B. F. Yoakum and B. Baeaick, New York financiers, contnr-teil to divide a million dollars in commissions from the proceeds of the fuse contracts let by the sfieil commission, was the fea- ture of the fuse contracts inquiry be- fore the Meredith-Duff commission to- day. The agreement in question was the same as one of those read by George Kyle in the commons when the charges were made. It 'was en- tered Into by the three parties after they had been promised the contract, but several weeks before the 'contract was signed. By ft Cadwell was to receive as his' share 'Bassick and Yoakum for negotiating tbe contract among selves with the committee. This money was to be paid from proceeds of de- liveries, The examination E. B. Cadwell was continued by I- F. Hellmnth, K.O., in the afternoon. On June 1 the wit- ness stated they had been informed that part of the contract was to be for graze fuses. Cadwell and Bassick came -to- Ottawa to see about the change. The committee in- formed them that graze fuses were required, and asked them if they, could aandle them. He Carnegie that liis associate companies had been manufacturing graze fuses. Jn justification of the price which they asked, they had pointed out that considerable expense was involv- ed in the change from time to graze. The witness said lie had a large plant for time fuses. At that meeting he nad brought a specimen of a graze fuse, which he had made. He left the commission on that oc- casion with a fairly definite under- standing that he was to secure a con- tract for graze fuses and times. Yoakum. Bassick and Cadwell then discussed what partici- pation they should generally have in the company. Mr. Youkum said he would take 20 per cent. Mr. Bassick did hot care to. take any part of It. Mr. Gadwell undertopk to take any part of the, whole of the capital, which was 000. Mr. Basaick did not care to put in ny capital. He suggested that they should name a iixed amount of money to he divided among themselves. The witness was the representative of the Cadweli company and not of the new organization. This money should be divided after deliveries, It was thought that as the three of them had brought about the contract they should receive a commision for doing so. Bassiek was disinclhrd to take any financial part in the' busi- ness. A heated discussion then arose between Yoakum and Bassick as to who was entitled to the greatest share. Bassick claimed that he had most to do with it, aa he had the let- ter from Mr. Bertram, confirming the contract, and he threatened to take it back and drop the business altogether unless it were satisfactorily settled. Yoakum considered he had done as lie really had initiated tfon and had showed a to put up money. "I told them to nght It out-'among themselves, and that it was tlie capi- tal which, counted; Finally we agreed to put aside an even million. I saftl I would talie 25. per cent, .and they could divide the rest aruone selves. Yoakum and Bassick then disputed as to who should get the most. So far as I can see Craven got lo us all about the same time, but Yoakum's willingness to put up money was in his favor as against Bassick, who showed no willingness to put up money, it was finally fixed that Yoa- kum should receive 47% per cent, or and Bassick, was to get Cadwell himself was to get This was based on the round million, "as and when the money was received on deliveries of not on advances. In view of the fact that the fuses were fixed at different prices, it "was finally decided that the commission siiould be at iLc rate of 40 cents a fuse.

Dear- Mr. wish to tell you of a recent experience I had when suf- fering from backache, weak back, rheu- matism, dropsy, and congestion of the kidnej'a. I tried a new medicine called which has recently been dis- covered by Dr. Pierce, of whose medi- cines and Surgical Institution in Buffalo, N. have no doubt heard for years. This medicine acted upon me in a wonderful manner. I never have taken ,any medicine BO helpful m sucb quick time. I do wish anyone in need of such a remedy would give it a trial. (Signed) G. II.
