KBW TORK, Sept. 86. Yesterday's liqui
dation In the stock market was very gen
erally renewed at the opening today and
further severs declines were registered.
A1J the United States steel Issues dropped
to new low records, the common selling as
low as 18H, following opening sales of 1.000
shares at from 1& to 16. The preferred
stock declined to 6.24 and the per oent
bonds were quoted at 71H. a drop of H per
cent from yesterday's low price.
The market steadied soon after the open
ing on buying orders, which seemed In the
datura of support, and were said to ema
nate from strong quarters. There was also
a great deal of shorts covering.
Reports that leading financial Interests
had formed an agreement to support ths
market today could not be verified.
Save for slight reactions the market con
tinued steady up to noon at prloea slightly
below the top. Business showed a marked
falling off from ths early activity,
Df tat the Steel Stocks.
Shortly after noon the market again de
clined as the result of another drop In ths
steel stocks, which carried them still lower.
The common stock sold at 11, the preferred
at a4 and the 6 per oent bonds at 71. Ths

dangerous features and that not a single

Ths attack on United States Steel at mid

Aeeased Has Says He Had Ro Deal

Any Person or Persona la
SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 26.-The Indicted
Postal Inspector James Erwin was huard
by United Statea Commissioner Herrick
today. He desired to Bhow why be should
not be held , for trial In Washington, and
made a complete statement of his connec
tion with the alleged postofflce frauds. He
denied the charges specifically and then
told of hla connection with the affair, the
history of which covers a period of four
years, but which has but recently come to
public notice through the Washington In
vestigation. Erwin had note books and memoranda
to verify whnt he said. He did not deny
a knowledge of the sale ot the devices nnd
compliance with the schemes of the local
office whereby they developed the device
and sold It to the government. Erwin said
that he never had anything to do with
the compliance and the Installation of the
devices. He said that as assistant General
Deputy of free delivery, he Introduced their
The number In use under his direction, he
said, was 1,000 or 1,100. Ho asserted pos
itively, however, that he never knowingly
defrauded the government and that the sum
total of his earnings from the postal de
vice and Improvement company was $98.
Krwln's testimony in part was as fol
lows: On November 23, 1S99, I secured a twenty
day leave of absence and went with D. S.
Richardson, general superintendent of the
Sun Francisco olllcn to Washington to se
cure contracts for the Montague Letter Box
and Device company, ns tho company was
known at that time. It has since become
the Postal Device and Improvement com
pany. The Invention, I understand, was
Mr. Richardson's. My advice was solicited
because of my length of service and 1
suggested several Improvements.
Still Holds Stock.
On the certificates of stock given me by
Mr. Richardson appears the name of the
Montague company. I now hold 600 out of
40,000 shares In the Postal Development
company. For these I paid nothing. I took
no part In the formation of either com
pany, and paid no money for my stock.
The consideration I gave I waa told and
supposed, was the service I rendered In
perfecting the device. The object of our
trip to Washington In November, 1899, was
to interest the department In the device. J
was paid nothing for my services. ,
In Washington I personally Introducer!
Mr. Richardson to many of the employes
and asked them to offer any suggestion
they could for Improvement. I was well
acquainted there through my duties, which
had covered a period of ten years past. I
introduced Mr. Richardson to forty or fifty
men in the department nnd spent two or
three days In Introducing him. At that
time there was a national convention of
first class postmasters, who inspected the
I never had possession of any stock other
than that issued to me, nor did I place any
stock whatever among the employes of the
postoftlce department. Neither did I advise
Kir. Richardson to so place any stock. I
did not know that any stock was to be so
placed. And I had no official consent to
give, as I was never a director of either
the Montague or the present company. So
far as I know. It was never planned to
place any stock among the officials of the
department. 1 never took part in the mak
ing of contracts. The cost of manufacture
was not known at that time. I was staying
at the same hotel with Mr. Richardson. We
were together for ten days, from November
23 to December 3, 1899.
Introduces Device to Machea.
1 directed the attention of my chief, the
head postal Inspector, to the device, which
was set up for display In an alcove of the
free delivery department. August W. 'Ma
chen was at that time head of-the depart
ment. In my presence the device was quite
fully examined by ten or a dosen persons.
In my official capacity I was never called
upon to pass on the usefulness or desira
bility of the device. ,
Erwin then specifically denied that at any
time had he conspired with Machen, Beav
ers, or any one else for the sale of the
devices, further than that he testified. The
case was continued till tomorrow.
Examination of Beavers.
NEW YORK, Sept. 25. The examination
of George W. Beavers, on the Brooklyn
indictment In the postal Investigation, was
again adjourned today by United States
Commissioner Hitchcock, until October 6,
when the contempt proceedings against
Postofflce Inspector Little for refusing to

Mr. Beavers was also formally arraigned
today on the first Washington Indictment
which charges him with conspiracy with
the Columbia Supply company, which fur
nished the large Iron boxes used for re
ceiving the packages and papers. The at
torneys for the defense admitted Mr. Beav
er's identity, but gave notice to the prose
cution that they Intended to object to the
sufficiency of the Indictment and that they
would on or before Saturday next file briefs
with the commissioner pointing out their

Luxury in Walking
Never mind what old-fashioned people tell you: Style
and Comfort CAN live together In pair ot shoes! The
"Dorothy Dodd" proves It.
They art the utmost height of style.
They are stoes of genuine distinction.
The highest praise you can give a shoe la to say
"It has the style of a 'Dorothy Dodd.'"
Yet the "Dorothy Dodd" Is the most comfortable shoe ever
made. You long to walk lor the pleasure of walking. It holds the
foot firmly around the Instep and supports the unsupported
arch. You escape the "slouchy" gait which comes with soma
shoes. It gives a new poise to your body
In walking. Your carriage Is more light
and graceful. Just try one pair.
ft. Dorothy Dodd.
