Lamar's statement today before the

substantially as follows;

K2,MO,O0O. Who It Was I don't know. As
x consequence, the men connected with

1S2.000.000 In cash as the proceeds of that
forgery and that $82,000,000 was the ful
crum through which all these giant
monopolies and conspiracies were fast
ened on the' lines of railroads serving
the- territory froth the Rocky mountains
to the gulf of Mexico and from the Pa

more than that. It
was the fulcrum

occurred and that the motive was rob
bery. While Jewelry was not molested
her purse was empty.
