Assistant Secretary of the
" Navy Expected to Tes
tify on Alleged Senate
Combination Which De
; feated Sheehan.
: STltACUSK, tt. V., May 4.-Wnnlns In
toreat In the William Darncs-Theodore
, Noosevelt J5O.00O libel suit was revived
i nnd redoubled today by the expectation
that both principals toulil be on the
slnnd In nddltlon to Franklin D. Iloosc
velt, Asslstnnt Secretary of the Navy,
hit nephew of the foimer President.
The crowd that struggled for admission
to the courtroom rqunlcil Hint of the flrot
week of the action, when the Colonel
held tho boards.
Mr. Itooscvelt vns expected to "rorrcct
his testimony" to the extent of revealing
his "stnle of tnlnd" at the time he cmised
to bo ptlbllshcd his aliened libel of Harnes,
who, he charged, was In combination with
C Francis Murphy, of Tammany Hall.
"When court opened this morning
Colonel Iloosrvelt appeared, nccoinpunlcd
by his nephew, who was a caiidldntc for
United States Senator In the deadlock
when James O'QonnRii was elected to
succeed Chaunccy M. Depew. Itooscvelt
was credited with being tho choice of
President Wilson.
Tha Appearance of the Assistant Keere-
tary of the Navy was n surprise. It wns
believed ho would testify to the alleged
Barnes-Murphy Senate combination that
resulted In tho overthrow of William F.
Tho summoning of Franklin D. Roose
velt was the result of Justice Andrews'
change of ruling yesterday when he an
nounced that Colonel Iioosovclt could
offer additional ovldenco to show he acted
without personal innllcn toward lames
when ho mado hU political statements
last fall,
Tho first evidence of tho day was docu
mentary. Stewart Hancock, of counsel
for ftoosevelt, read Into the records bids
mado for departmental printing In Al
bany from 1839 to 1913. He also read -cerpts
from tho stipulation entered Into
when the State of New York sued William
Barnes' Albany Journnl Company for al
leged over-charge for printing. Tho suit
Was won by the State, reversed by tho
Appcllato Division and alnrmed by the
Court of Appeals.
Roosevelt busied himself reading a largo
batch of mall while Harnes drummed
upon tho table with his Angers, nppar
ontly the least Interested man In the room.
William Lyon, of tho J. U. Lyon Print
ing Company, of Albany, was the first wit
ness. Ho Identified his company's check
book nnd explained vurious stubs cover
ing' the period of 1809-01.
Charles M. Winchester, of tho Lyon
Company, was recalled to tell more about
State printing contracts. A desired book,
ho said, was at his hotel and he was ex
cused to go after It.
Fred C. Foster, chief clerk of tho Ktato
Printing Board, then was recalled to pre
sent tho printing ring evidence he began
Musty letter tllca of formor Senator
Piatt produced a new thrill In the trial.
Five- letters exchanged two decades ngo
between Barnes atiil Piatt, amber with
age, wero produced 'to show Barnes' per
sonal Interest In securing State printing
contracts. '
"For six years men favorable to you
have prevented me from seeming nay-
ming in me printing line, names wrpio
to tho "boas" in ISM.
"What I don't want to sec Is another
printing plant In Albany," was another
excerpt from n letter of Barnes.
That a Republican leader "deprives mo
of a legitimate pleco of patronage" was
another complaint of Barnes to tho chief
tain, asking that his newspaper be given
the State Assembly clerk's contract to
fudnlsh stationer' and "other nppct
tances." Edwanl Piatt, son of the former "boss,"
produced tho now Barnes. Piatt letters
under subpoenn by tho defense.
One told of a uunrrel between Barnes
and Lemuel E. Qulgg because Barnes
could not get printing contracts. Of 134
letters exchanged between Harnes nnd
Piatt the nve referlng to Barnes' impor
tunities for State printing business were
tho only ones which Justice Andrews
.woutd receive.
Tho entlro testimony today was de
signed to prove Barnes" alleged personal
Interest In printing contracts. Prospective
appearance of Barnes ns a formal wltncso
for Roosevelt to identify his newspaper
books and of Roosavelt to give further
direct testimony was postponed.
How Albany printing companies Jug
gled contracts nnd how the State has
spent J7.832.000 for printing since 1889 were
otner disclosures!

the Fourth of July In Philadelphia ana
providing for the appointment of a com

Cnnliniifd From I'skr One
quarter dollar nnd gets you a small sealed
brown envelope bearing no Inscription
on back or front. You tear oft one end,
remove the card within, nnd read your
You are doing something that is ngnlnst
the law, nnd the first sight of the card
emphasizes tlno point. At the top 's
printed in big letters "That Club " That
is, yon nuvo uecomo n member of an
anonymous organization, the units in
which rrcognlzo each other by saying,
"Do you belong to thnt club?" meaning,
of course, that particular gambling club,
which, by tho wny, makes n net prollt
of JilO a week, minus trifling expenses,
nnd pays out In prizes only J250 n week.
On your card nre tabulated tho clubs
In the three big leagues American, Na
tional nnd Federal. Three of them are
"punched" with a ticket-puncher; any
three: and you win If tho totals of the
runs made by your three clubs aro higher
than the totals made by any other com
binations of three clubs, or lower, dally or
Tho prizes offered nro $15 for "dally
high score;" $10 for "dally low;" 50 for
"wpekly high:" 120 for second "weekly
high." and JC0 for "weekly low."
A little figuring exposes the crooked
sjstem of the baseball Ramblers. They
can sell a ticket with any combination of
any three clubs of the 2t clubs In tho
thiee big leagues designated on it by
"punches." Now there nro 2021 possible
different combinations of three In 2t nnd
they sell n ticket for each of these 2014
combinations. Multiplying 23 cents (tho
price of each ticket) by 2021. we get 1501
as the gross weekly total received from
tho sale of the tickets, which aro sold
every Monday morning.
Now tho prizes, specified above, aggre
gate $250 a week ; that Is, every day some
one gets a $15 prize for hlgr scorn nnd
some one else gets a $10 prize for low
scoro That makes $25 that is paid dnlly,
or $150 a week. Then tho three prizes
for the week's totals, $50 for high, $20
for second high and $30 for low, aggregate
$100, which, with tha $150, makes $250
paid out every week.
Now we found that tho gamblers take
In $50S a week from the sale of the 25-ceni
tickets, and subtracting tho $250 paid out
In prizes, we get n net profit of $256 a,
week for the gambling "officials," an
outrageously high percentage, Multi
plying this $266 by 21, for the 21 weeks
of baseball, we get a profit for the sea
son for this one club of lOHt.
Subtracting from this the expense of
printing the tickets, distribution, etc.,
and multiplying by 50, for at least 50
"clubs" operating h this city, and we
gat at least $300,000 48 tho net profits
of the gambling "officials" in I'htladel.
phla alone.
So, out of your little quarter dollar. 12
cents la swept Into the pockets of tho
"offlclali" before you begin to figure out
your dim chances, i'hen you have to
reckon with the probability that even If
you win, you will have to Bhara the prize
with a number of persons who have tied
your score. For example, on Friday, April
IS, !0 parsons divided the dally prize of $10
for low score, giving each M cents. In
stead of $10. The next day three persons
divided the prize for high score,
Eery week a schedule Is) distributed
among tho patrons of 'That Club"' tell
ing, who were the winners In the last
week's contest. For example, on Thura-
day, April 15, on of the names printed
on llila slip Is that of "C, B. Craver, 1211
Market street." This Mr. Cravtr was
found to be the assistant doorman of the
Palace Theatre, and he admitted cheer
fully that he Indeed had won a $15 prize
for having the combination for "dally
high score." Ills teams had been the
Chicago Americans, the Phillies and the
Brooklyn Federals, which made, respec
tively. 1. T and JT runs, on April 15. a
total of (0 runs, and more than any other
three teams aggregated In runs.
"I bought my tleket from a, personal
friend b4 Craver. "He la connected
with that club."

"Anybody who tries to liven up a hos
pital ought to be encouraged, for It'B a
oad place at the bent," said Magistrate
Pennock In setting free James Jarfa at
the Germantown station. This wns the
closing scene In what had threatened to
be a tragedy nt the Jewish Hospital.
Jarfa works In the kitchen there. He
Is a Hungarian and reeks with sentiment
uml patriotism nnd music. He has a
violin which he brought with him In a
mahogany case from Hungary and which
he always keeps near him as his moat
precious possession. He has It in a cup
board and brought It out Sunday after
noon, n an off hour, to "make It talk"
a bit and keep him company.
The walling notes of the Violin rose
through the hospital corridors and many
a sufferer on his cot turned hu head and
listened with a smile to the wild tune
from the kitchen. But some one was un
musical, and when Jarfa began to sing
to the accompaniment of the fiddle, Harry
Brown, an orderly, ran down to stop
what was just noise to him. When he
got there Jarfa wan shaving, during an
Intermission In his program.
He got so excited when he understood
Brown's Intentions that he waved hi
razor about to emphasize his arguments.
Brown thought Jarfa wanted to slash
him and sent for Policeman Seldere, who
thought ao, too. But as Jarfa explained
to tha Magistrate, he was Just mad at
the JoyklUera and meant no harm.
When Frank Malloy, of Pittsburgh,

trotuens, and, bU height wag accentuated,
by ,t shiny silk top hat. Furthermore,
IiIh feet were encased In gray-topped
patent leathers, and a comfortably filled
wallett added sunshine to his general out
look. Now all Is gloom!
A terrible thirst, due .probably to
Pittsburgh smoke, clung to Malloy when
he alighted from a train In Broad Street
Station, and In the course of his wan
derings through various liquid establish
ments he met two Impromptu friends.
Ho floated to the southern part of the
city und his mind soon became a mare
In which white-coated bartenders, clink
ing glasses and riotous laughter figured
conspicuously. Malloy eventually found
himself sitting on a curbstone at 23d and
Uimbard streets. The sense of touch
convinced him that the frock coat, the

CROWD AT 8:30 A. M.
Housewives from all over Philadelphia
started for tho Crown Stamp Company
offices when word spread that only tho
stock then In tho storo would bo ex
changed for stamps. All wanted to bo
first. Southbound 10th stroot cars and
tho Arch street lines began dropping oft
passengers at 10th and Arch streets an
hour before tho Crown offloea opened.
By 8:30 there wore 1500 women blocking
tho pavement and the number doublod
within half an hour.
Tho window went through when
mounted policemen Kvans, Fulton nnd
Anderson rodo up on the sidewalk and
tried to clear n npaco beforo tho two
entrance doors. Efforts to get out of the
way crowded women against the windows
In solid masses. Carpenters sent down
from tho Acme Tea Company head
quarters at 4th and Noble streets, boarded
up tho window.
After tho window was broken and sev
eral of tho stamp book holdera had been
carried out of tho crush to bo revived,
William Clow, prosldcnt of tho Crown
Btnmp Compnny and vlco presldont of tho

business ns assurnnco that overy stnmp
will bo ledeemed," Mr. Crow snld.
"Tho offices on Arch street will bo kept
open and now stock to replace that given
out today will be brought In overy day
until tho business Is wound up."
According to Allison N. Klmmcy, audit
or of tho Crown Stamp and tho Acmo
Company, who helped direct tho storo
employes In their battle with tho stamp
owners, there Is enough stock In the
four-story building on Arch street to
withstand two weeks' raiding.
But the crowd outside didn't know It.
Not even tho downpour of rain could de

Through the door at 1007 beside tho
smashed window camo a disheveled
stream of tho successful, who had sur
vived the wedge at the entrance nnd
cashed In their stnmps. They carried
bird cages, rocking chairs, bamboo book
racks and pictures in gilt frnmes, and
set them down In tho rain immediately
while they rested.
Inside tho store women hurried over
tho floor, stamp books held beforo them,
and climbed on tho counters to see what
choice offerings wero left. Twenty extra
girls, who wero taken on to wait be
hind the counters and handle tho ex
pected rush, worked unavalllngly to serve
Trading stamp speculators, who arrived
soon after tho first of tho crowd, cut
prices to $1.50 for n thousand stamps and
found that the optimistic who expected
to get Inside later were ready buyers.
