0. J. Evans Agrees to Tell Story of
Graft to Grand Jury and is Let
Off with Fine of $100.
'COLUMBUS, O.. June 5. Representative
Owen J. Evans of Canton. Ptark county,
today created one of the blgKest sensations
of the executive brlbcrv sramlal by ap
pearing before Judge Kinkend's criminal
court and pleading guilty to the charge of
receiving a bribe of lino on the salary loan
bill. He said he received the money from
L. C. Miller of Akron, a loan atrent.
Evans" confession came immediately
after the Franklin county grand Jur"y had
returned an Indictment against him and
was the outcome of an arrangement with
Prosecuting Attorney Turner and Attorney
General Slogan, who pleaded for lenlencey
In sentencing him. Judge Klnkead fined
lilm $5W, and he then went before the
grand Jury to be questioned about all the
alleged grafting in the legislature.
Evans was a member of the steering
committee of the house, of which Repre
sentative Nye of Pike county was also a
member. Nye was acquitted last week
after a trial on the charge of soliciting a
bribe of t"00 from State Printer Crawford.
Two other indictments are still pending
against Evans, one on the charge of re
ceiving a bribe" of SMlO from J. F. Weiss,
connected with a brewing company at Can
ton, and another, returned today, with the
one to which he pleaded guilty, which
charges the receiving of a bribe of $400
from J. C. Sharer.
The grand Jury made a third report In
the legislative bribery at 10:15 o'clock to
day, returning eight Indictments against
as many persons and three no bills.

Senate Finance Committee Has Lively
Session When Reciprocity Ques
tion Comes lp for Con
sideration. WASHINGTON, June S.-The senate
finance committee today resumed hearings
on the Canadian reciprocity bill, Herman
RIdder. until recently president of the
American Newspaper Publishers' associa
tion, being called to the witness chair. Mr.
Kidder had not proceeded far when Senator
McCumber of North Dakota startled the
committee by challenging one of Mr. RId
der s stttements as an "absolute false
hood." Kenator McCumber's action brought a
quick protest from Senators Stone and
Bailey, who aeclr-red that witnesses should
not be Insulted.
Mr. RIdder had made the statement that
newspapers of the country and the Pub
lishers association had not attempted to
suppress facts or to color stories sent
from Washington on the subject of rec
iprocity. Senator McCumber Interrupted
with his charge of falsehood.
Several senators Insisted that Mr. Mc
Cumber's remarks should be stricken from
"If any witness appearing before this
committee," said Senator Bailey, "were to

hood I would insist that it be stricken

Senator McCumber agreed to have his
remark changed ao as to make it read that

Mr. RIdder In reply to questions from
members of tha committee declared that he
as president of the Publishers" association
had sent out word to the members of the
association telling them the reciprocity
agreement was of vital Importance.
"But I would not have favored the
agreement," added Mr. RIdder, "if I had
not thought it would be of good to the
whole country independent of my Interest

Mr. RIdder declared that while he was In
favor of reciprocity as a whole his reason.
as a. newspaper- maiv ro?"lirgliiT Its pas
sage was so that he might get out of the
clutches of the "Paper trust" which, he
said, was robbing the newspaper publishers
of the country.
"Have you ever made an effort," asked
Senator Bailey, "to have the 'Paper trust'
punished by the Department of Justice?"
"Yes," replied Mr. RIdder, "I had fifty
two paper makers In New York indicted
and they paid $2,000 apiece. These were
manufacturers of various kinds of paper,
although It has not been possible as yet to
prove legally that a white paper trust ex
ists. "Mr. Wallack, vice president of the In
ternational Paper company, swore before
the Mann paper committee that there was
no combination of any sort, although re
ports were being made to him every Mon
day as to what the various paper mills of
the country were doing."
"Would you be satisfied," asked Senator
Heyburn, "if the 'Paper trust' were pun
ished In some other way than by the pas
sage of the reciprocity agreement?"
"I want help during my life time," said
Mr. RIdder. "I have not yet seen any trust
magnates go to Jail. I favor the measure
so that I may buy paper In the open mar
ket. I do not Intend, If I can help it, to
let the 'Paper trust' dictate to me what I
must pay for paper."

WASHINGTON, June S To Senator
Stone of Missouri, President Taft made It

be against any proposed by any other

WASHINGTON. D. C, June 5 (Special
Telegram.) William M. Davidson, superln.
tendent of the public schools of Omaha,
was elected to the position of superintend
ent of' public schools of this city by tha

afternoon. Dr. Davidson was elected for
a term of three years. ,
That Dr. William M. oavldson, superin
tendent of schools, will accept the call to

he had not been tendered the position.
"In the event that I am elected, however,
I shall be able to give a reply very soon,"

me to say what I wilt do under the present
circumstances. I know that I have been
considered for the position. In fact, I
have been In communication with members
of the school board of V'asntngton.
"I realize that the superlntendency of
the Washington schools Is an opportunity
that seldom comes to a man. Washington
Is one of the public schools centers ot the
United States and the field there is of such
magnitude and Importance than any one
would consider It a long time before turn
ing It down."
Members of the Board of Education are
much exercised over the probable loss of
Dr. Davidson. Many of them freely stated
that the salary raise would be met If Dr.
Davidson would decide to stay here. It Is
said, however, that the superintendent has
his mind made up and salary raises or
other considerations will not affect his
