stalled In tho free delivery system. When
asked If ho knew that Machen would be
Instrumental In securing tho contract for
tho company, Erwln stated that ho did not
understand government procedure in mat
ters of this kind. Later he said that the
oontract for 4.000 devices came about three
weeks after be left Washington and that
tho order was signed by George M. Allen,
acting as assistant postmaster general.
TIave you been told that Mr. Machen
and Mr, Bearers bald an Interest in the
companyT Erwln was asked.
He replied i "1 was told by Richardson
several months ago that 1000 shares of
stock In the Postal Device and Improve
ment company bad been issued to a man
luuned Harry Sieger, but that it was in
tended for A. W. Maohen, and that 2,000
shares bad been Issued in the name of
MoDsaough, but Intended for George W.
Beavers. .1 was not aware of tbo fact until
told by him, although I had suspected sev
eral years ago that they were both Inter
ested In the company."
Tho district attorney asked if Erwln
knew of any other officials in any way
being subsidized. An objection to this
question was sustained. The witness said
bo did not know that accepting shares in
a company was a violation of law.
Postal Inspector Robert Mundo testified
that ho knew "of tho counts In tho indict
ment only at second hand.
R. H. Espy, secretary of the Postal De
vice and Improvement company, testified
that Erwln was not and never had been
a director or officer of either company.
Aooording to Espy 100' boxes have been
old to this government for 14.25 and $160
apiece, and tho oompany had sold LOO0 to
New Zealand for $6,
"What 11 the cost at tho factory of the
Servicer he was asked.
"Two dollars and seventy-five cents.
Adding expenses, the cost is $3.33. Mr.
Richardson as president got $75 a month.
As secretary I was paid $60 a month.1
' He said that Richardson did hold 11,000
hares of stock,' but that he now holds
only 7,000, aa ho has sold tho rsmalnder.
Richardson's profits In dividends, . ho said,
had been $1,100, while bo had derived $3,300

WASHINGTON, Bept. 2.-The views of
conservative negro leaders In this city
on the race question have been formulated
at a conference between Rev. Dean Rich
mond Babbitt of the Church of the Epiph
any, Brooklyn. N. T., and the following
prominent colored cltlxena: Rev. Francis
Orlmke, pastor of the Fifteenth Street
Baptist church; Prof. Kelly Miller of How
ard university; Judge W. Lyons, register
of the United States treasury; Cyrus Field
Adams, assistant register of the treasury;
John C. Dancy, recorder of deeds of tho
District of Columbia; Dr. O. M. At wood,
Thomas R. Clarke and Whltefleld Mc
Kin ley. ,
Dr. Babbitt has devoted much time to
the study of this question and was chosen
at tho recent Chautauqua meeting to reply
to the argument of John Temple Graves.
The composite views, expressed in signed
opinions of these eight colored leaders and
submitted to Dr. Babbitt, follow:
The spreading of race prejudice Is oc
casioned by appeal to race passion by poli
ticians. The cure for the prejudice Is the
application of Christian morals and re
ligion and the Just execution of the laws.
The fourteenth and fifteenth amendments
to the constitution should be held intact.
It Is not the desire, wish or purpose of
the negroes, as a race, to seek, maintain.
emphasize or teach social equality with the
wnues as a consequence oi equal political
rights and they urged strongly that the
learo s education should not be limited to
Industrial training. They believe that the
lumber of crimes charted to the race had
been grossly exaggerated by their enemies:
tnat the real tacts should be collected and
published and that the clergy of their race
should teach strongly against these crimes.
They urged a thorough organization of
their race under capable leaders and an
appeal to the press and to the moral and
religious sentiment of the country, and
especially to the white clergy. They op
posed the Idea of a separate political party.
Will Not Irge Disfranchisement.
NASHVILLE, Tenn., Bept 2. The Amer
ican will say tomorrow that Senator E. W.
Cormack in an interview today said that
he would make no effort to secure the re
peal of the fifteenth amendment He said:
I am sorry that'the Imnresslon has been
created that I am preparing to agitate this
question in congress. A reporter was ois
cussing with me an article I had written
on the race auestion and asked me if I
Intended to introduce a measure for the re
peal of tho fifteenth amendment. I replied
that I had not thought of it, but added
that I might. It was all.
I confess that I have a great curiosity
to hear the fifteenth amendment defended
by the republican leaders, but at the same
time I know that nny progress toward the
reDeal of the fifteenth amendment dertends
on It not being made a partisan or sectional
question. 10 matte it sucn wouia tie to
check at once a healthy growth of public
sentiment It may well be that any direct
effort on the part of the southern man
for Its repeal would result In making this
a sectional party movement

HARMONY INJTHE BIG SIXTH
RepnMlcane Hear Echo) from tho
Session mt Washiugtoa
Harmony was the whole of the song at
the AU Blxth ward meeting in Idlewlld hall
last night, and the members of the Blxth
Ward Republican club and the members of
the Solid Twenty-six met together. with the
simple friendliness of the earlier part of
the interview between the Hon and the
lamb. There was a big bunch of candidates
and each mads short talks. The general
sentiment was as follows;
W. A. Reddlck: "I attended the meeting
last night and have never before felt so
well since I have been a candidate. I felt
the atmosphere was cleared as It had not
been before in two years.. It looked -as
though things had been fixed so nons of
our friends can be hurt. These ward meet
ings, though pleasant, will not be neces
sary after the primaries, because on Oc
tober 6 we will have a united party. Borne
personal contests may now be a little
acrimonious in some localities, but we will
all drop this with the primaries."
H. P. Stoddard: "I am Impressed by the
harmony of the candidates. I have heard
no acrimonious words spoken and to my
mind this means that tho successful eandl
dates will get the support In the election
of the unsuccessful and the voters will
follow the candidates. I was pleased with
the words spoken at the meeting last night
and I think all will agree that the repub
lican party fs a united party and so will
carry everything. After the meeting X be
Ueve that there Is no such thing as roa
chins or anti-machine."
The other speakers followed In much th
same strain, all being enthusiastic over the
harmony meeting of last night Robert
Bmlth told how he hoped to save the county
$S."00 or W.0OO, and promised If he should
be elected and fail to do this be would never
again be a seeker of office.
W. W. Bingham said that party success
Is of more Importance than the personal
success of Individual candidates. Sara
