'and sensational features have come
I to light in connection with the graft
investigation in this city. It Is
learned on good authority that the
relief funds for the fire sufferers
have been lroted to the extent of
nearly - $l,ooo,ooo. . So indignant
was President Roosevelt, on bear
ing of the stealing of the funds con
tributed by sympathetic citizens of
various states for the relief 'of the
unfortunates of San Francisco, that
he is reported, to have said that he
wd&ld brina the offenders from the
T rr ,-- r,--f, u
uttermost parts of the earth should
they make temporary escape.
Daring tbe fir&t days following
the fire 10 ban Francisco sympa
thetic citizens throughout the
cotfotry forwarded relief moneys by
postal orders and by enclosing scrip
in envelopes and other ; packages
The world not being acquainted
with tbe organization of relief bod
ies "id the city, forwarded financial
aid in care of Mayor Scbmitz.
It is said amounts ranging from
50 cents upward into hundreds and
possibly thousands of dollars were
sent -to tne mayor and that a com
paratively small sum only reached
the Red Cross or citizens' relief
committee as shown by the records.
It is estimated that tbe relief mon
eys were forwarded through
anoUOoeibly 3o,ooo postoffices of
the United States and also that
considerable sums came through
the express companies
Tbe interest of President RooBe
velt and tne lederal authorities in
this affair has been so great that
the president is credited with tbe
statement that the government wil

William J. Burns, one of the
most expert and successful deteo
uvea in tne employ ot tne govern
ment ii retailed to work in San
Krnciseo. Francis1 J.' Heney, who
with Burns was engaged in prose
cutiog important land frand cases
of Oiegon and California, was de
tached from that work and assigned
to the San Francisco graft invest!
So secret has been the work
these government agents that eve a
District Attorney Langdon was not
j acquainted with the main purpose
for fear tht he might "leak."
During Sohmltz' tour abroad he
ha-i been all the time under the
watchful eye of government agents.
Tbe first hint of thefts came when
$t,o85 in currency Beat from Sesrch
ligbt to the mayor's Office disap
peared. The express company has
a receipt for the money, and the
Searchlight editor, who sent the
money, has. a letter of acknowledge
ment, but the money is missing and
Scbmitz and all his underlings de
ny it was ever received.
Evidence of alleged graft in the
issuances of licenses for French res
taurants was placed before the
grand jury this . morning. Oa it
the investigators say they are post
tive they can secure the indictment
and conviction of men high up in
the administration. Befoie the iu-
ry went Into session Secret - Service
Agent Burns announced that the
evidence waB the most complete ev
er gathered in any casa and would
convince any jury in tbe world ; of
the guilt of the persons accused
; ine personnel, of. the witnesses
summoned for the first meeting
snowed clearly that the first evi
dence taken will be with a view to
icticd Abe Ruef.
Oa tbe center table of nearly eve
ry ranch houee in Benton county,
in common with every corner of
the United States, will be found a
bulky catalogue of Sear?, Roebuck
& Co , Chicago. This house does
an immense business and its wealth
is away up in the millions, so we
regard thiB bit of inside information
as to the methods once practiced by
the heads, and which have proba
bly not gone out of fashion yet, as
worthy the perusal and considera
tion of their Benton county patrone:
"Do you know how Sears, Roe-
buch & Co. started in business?"
asked Mr. Zandition of tha News
editor-recently. worked for
them 'nine years ago. I knew
ar when be was a station agent
in Wisconsin and Roebuck when
be was a watch peddler. One time
Roebuck wanted to go to Milwau
kee and didn't have the money ; so
he left a watch as securety with
Sears for his tare, telling him that
if he should be able to sell the
watch tor more than six dollars he
might keep half he made. Sears
sold the watch for $12. Ihen Sears
wrote to Roebuck in Milwaukee
and got him to send by express a
dozen watches to Bill Jones, Sam
Smith and a lot of fiotious names
These watches were billed out at
$25 and $10 paid on them appar
ently. Sears unloaded them on his
friends easily at $15 each, which
cost him and Roebuck J53 5O. But
the railroad company got onto the
eame and fired Sears, and two of
them opened an olhce in Milwaukee
Tiny bought a thousand watches
and shipped them to every express
office in Kansas, Missouri and Illi
nois. These watches cost 3 but
tbev sold as $25 watches maiked
$10 and to fictitious names. .
'Wben the agent reported . such
matters back as undelivered, then
this pair would write back that
some mistake must surely be made
but as Davment of $10 . had been
made on this watch they would a'
low the agent a commission of $2 to
secure the o her $l.s Well, the
watch scheme worked fine and the
pair cleaned up Then
thev bousht a lot of parlor sets for
children and advertised them, giv
ing the impression you would re
ceive a full set of furniture for $s
and tfao people bit all over thecoun-
try. uacie bam baa stopped bearst
Roebuck & Co.'s mail - fourteen
times for fake deals like this bat
has never been able to catch them.'
Sears is probably worth nine or ten
millions.. Roebuck ie working in
Des Moines, Iowa, for $18 a week,
having been forced out of business r
several years ago. As an illustra
tion of how this firm makes money:
About a year ago they bought -:
about three . thousand bicycles - all
alike, and they placed three prices
on the same wheel, which cost them
$6.50, and they sold it for $12.75,
$16.25 and $12.50. The same
wheel, mind you, possibly a differ
ent color of paint but the only dif- -
ferencq was that some people want
ed a $12.5o wheel and others a
$12.75 wheel, and they got what
they wanted. They work the same
graft on clothing. In catalogues
they, advertise clay worsteds, at
$12.50, $15 and $18. . No matter
what you pay you get tbe same suit. .
The name Saars, Roebuck & Co. is
tneir trade mars and as Roebuck
has been bankrupt for several years
he is-not connected with the firm.
Montgomery Ward is. practically
dead and has been for several years.
Yet tbeee people have been eo sue-.
cessfol in stealing from ihs public
such large sums that it is a wonder
Uncle Sam allows them to exist.
Taeir advertisement is deceptive..
They do not fill orders as the cus
tomers think they are filled, yet
they are Btnooth enough to keep
within the bounds of tne law some
way.. Even your oountry merchant
who pays a larger, whole sale pries
for his goods than they do. could
get rich selling a better grade of
goods to the people that patronize
these two big places. I worked for
Sears, Roebuck & Co. for two years
and I know what I say is true."-
