"Wash ington, Juno 27. When tho Investigation Into the affairs of the Postofflce Depart ment was begun last April, no one, aside from the men Implicated In the frauds, had any conception of the extent to which the corruption had spread. Not even Fourth Assistant Postmaster-General Brlstow, who has so successfully ferreted out in numerable unlawful acts, dreamed that so many offices or so many officials were so grossly abusing the trust reposed in them as public representatives. That the af fairs of the department had been handled loosely no one doubted, and that unneces sary appointments had been made from time to time waa common gossip, but there was no idea that public funds had been misappropriated in huge lumps over a pe riod of five or six years by men holding some of the most responsible positions in the Government service in Washington. Mil c lien. Too Good a. Fellow. August ,W. Machen, until lately chief of tho free-delivery division, had the reputa tion of being a competent official, but with a leaning to overliberallty. He had espe cially gone out of his way and lost sight of discretion in complying with the re Quests of Senators and Representatives. But this was an error that can be charged to many officials in Washington. When men .in Congress asked for the establish ment of rural free-delivery service in their districts Mr. Machen made every effort to aee that such service was established, and often went outside the rules laid down in order that his friends at the Capitol might not be disappointed. He established rural routes in communi ties where there were but few settlers, where the roads did not meet require ments, where tho service would have to be operated at a heavy loss to the Gov ernment. He knew of these unfavorable conditions, but it was only where the cir cumstances were exceptionally unfavor able that he declined to accede to requests made by his friends in Congress. And un til lately the term "his friends in Con gress" meant nearly every man who rep resented In whole or in part a country district. This same indiscreet liberality he showed toward the men from the large cities, for he favored them with excessive and unnecessary free-delivery service whenever they requested it. He Ever "Worked for a. "Price." Machen was ambitious; he was ever looking to his own interests, and to show how great was his influence, as a result of his liberality, he was able in tho last ses sion of Congress to have his own salary raised tSOO per annum over the protest of the Postmaster-General, while Congress simultaneously refused to advance salar ies of other officials who were recommend ed for promotion by Postmaster-General Payne. But very few people suspected .Machen of other wrongdoing than this. Every one recognized that he was build ing up for himself a strong backing in Congress, but the public believed and his friends believed he was working for re turn favors at the Hands of -his friends in Congress in the way of an increased sal ary. - Beavers Also Was Too Liberal. And what la said of Machen in -this re spect applies with equal force to George W. Beavers, who suddenly -resigned his office as chief of the salaries and allow ances division. He, too, was looked upon as' a "good fellow," and, like Machen, went out of his way and beyond the die tates of his discretion in appointing un necessary carriers and clerks and in pro mo ting postal employes whose' services did not warrant promotion. Ho likewise was most liberal in furnishing postofflces throughout the oountry often beyond their need and beyond their request. But he was not suspected of committing any criminal act. Llko Machen, with whom he co-operated, he could look upon nearly every man in Congress as his friend, and could consistently ask of them favors in the way of increased salary. His salary was raised along with that of Machen at the recent session, the Increases being Identical. Soon after the postal investigation was Instigated a number of papers untagon lstlc to tho Administration took up tho charges that were brought to light and made much of them. Other papers were inclined to regard the matter lightly, for investigations into the affairs of Govern ment offices were not uncommon in Wash ington, and seldom led to any startling disclosures. Moreover, practically all of the charges filed with Postmaster-General Payne had been laid before his predeces sor, Charles Emory Smith, and the inves ligation at that time, so far as the pub lic was aware, had cleared the accused parties. one knew of tho seriousness of the report rendered by General Brlstow about two years ago; no one was aware that Postmaster-General Smith had been warned of general wrongdoing 'among his subordinates. It was commonly remarked, and particularly by newspaper men sup posed to be familiar with the affairs of the Postofflce Department, that there "was a. great deal of smoke, but not much fire.' Some of the oldest Washington correspond, cnts, men who have followed up lnnumer able, other investigations in the depart ments here, and some who went through the star-route Investigation of many years past, were of the opinion .that .the present investigation would be a tame affair. They did not believe that Machen or any other Government official nad been guilty of un lawful conductin office. And they tafew Machen, too. 'They likewise knew Beav ers, or thought they did. In passing- it may be said -that these two shrewd Individuals had taken tho. precau tlon from the start of making friends with the vast corps of Washington cor respondents. This fact is partly account able for the early views of many of Wash ington's most experienced newspaper men, for though they watched the early stages of the investigation, and had the benefit of what might be. termed "Inside informa tion." . these men were not aware of the enormous wrongdoing of these two bureau chiefs. It was tho anti-Administration papers that at once began an onslaught on the department that proved to be cor rect, while the fair writers were almost to a man misled. Perry Heath Imposed Upon. Perry S. Heath. ex-First Assistant Postmaster-General, was one of the most pop ular men that ever held office in Wash ington. He was for many years a Wash ington correspondent, and throughout his term of office -under President McKinley was one of the best friends the newspa per men had in official circles. Always ready to give out what news came within his reach, always approachable, cordial to everyone, he was supposed to be a thor oughly competent official. How much of the blame for bad appointments and un necessary expenditure of public funds belongs on the head of Mr. Heath per sonally the public must determine for itself. He was and still is secretary of the Republican National Committee, and to him were sent "heelers" and cheap poli ticians who demanded recognition for services they had rendered, or alleged they had rendered, in the campaign of 1595 and at other times. That many ot them were "cheap men" is shown by the class of ap pointments they were willing to accept. It is hard to believe that Heath, or nnv other man, would have assumed entire responsibility for putting these "hangers on" into office. Some one else in the party, no doubt an endless string, includ ing men ia Congress, must have brought pressure to bear on Heath to give such alleged politicians Government positions. Public Treasury Had to Suffer. In his good nature and his anxiety to oblige, Heath yielded to pressure, and fed the suckers with offices, where promises would have done aa welL The public treasury had to suffer in consequence. Many of his appointments, as shown by the Brlfltow report, did not even deem it necessary to perform any work for the salaries that were bestowed upon them. They condescended to present themselves only on pay days. Others drew fair to liberal salaries for small and Inconse quential services to the Government. Numbered among those who were un lawfully added to the postal rolls by or der of Mr". Heath were many women. They had ' rendered the party no service, hut were - appointed or promoted at the in sistence of ifcen in thd party who did not wish personal advancement or who were not in a position to accept it. To members of Congress should be laid much of the responsibility for this class of the Heath appointments. Perry Heath was not as shrewd a politician as he was credited with belng4 He lacked firmness, and the will power necessary for a successful ad ministrative officer. He did not know how to say "no." Why Talloch Was Discredited. Returning to the original charges, and especially to those brought by ex-Cashier Tulloch, of tho Washington Postofflce, it may be said that these allegations of wrongful acts were discredited in many circles for two reasons. In the first place, Postmaster-General Smith apparently f oind nothing in them when he ordered an Investigation two years ago. No dismis sals, no rebukes resulted. Then, too, Tul loch was personally discredited because It had been established that he himself. as he should. A large part of his time was devoted to private business, for while holding Government office, he was a high official In a local electric lighting com pany. Moreover, he made use of Postofflce clerks and stenographers in the perform ance of his private business, facts which, when they became known, tended to dis count any countercharges he might have made- against his superiors. Being him self culpable, it was not thought that Tulloch had much ground for complaint, but was rather attempting to "get back" at those who had Interfered with his own conduct in office. It develops, however, that whllo Tulloch abused his privileges in office, he- was not dishonest in any sense, beyond the. misuse of time belong ing to the Government, and he stands to- -day more than vindicated by the ex posures made by General Brlstow. Shrewd Game of a "Physician." A -story is told about tho department, and its truth vouched for, which throws considerable light upon tho methods of Machen and Beavers. Among the men ap pointed to office without authority was a Dr. Jones ,of Washington, a personal friend of Perry Heath, and a man of un enviable reputation. Jones was a reporter on one of the leading Washington papers, and, having graduated in medicine, and being licensed to practice, secured through Heath an appointment as physician to the Washington letter-carriers. As shown in the Brlstow report, there was no author ity for tho -appointment, although sev eral other physicians had been appointed in other large offices, and always at a sal ary of $1700 per annum. Jones performed absolutely no service in return for his salary, but occasionally hired a practicing physician to make a show at attending sick carriers for him. All the while he continued to draw his salary at the rate of $1700, but served only his newspaper. One day the man who vouches for this story dropped into Mach en's office. Machen was pacing the floor, apparently much worried. "What's the matter, Gus?" asked, hla visitor, a close friend. "Why," he replied, "that man Beavers Is the limit. He has asked all sorts of unreasonable things ot me, and I have done them, but now he comes down and wants me to buy an operating table for Dr. Jones, and charge It to rural free delivery-" Beavers' Worlc Injures His Son. "Among the young men who recently passed a creditable examination for en trance to the West Point Military Acad emy was the young son of George W. Beavers, the- discredited postal official. The reputation earned by his father can not but injure young Beavers to some ex tent, for, although his associates at the academy, under the training they receive, will not allude to the unfortunate circum stances, he will nevertheless rest under somewhat of a cloud. It is unfortunate for him that, tho postal .frauds were dis closed at Just the time he was about to enter th.e military academy, for it is -said the young man possesses fine qualities which are susceptible of development. It will he another case Id which a young man has to live down the unsavory repu tation 'of his -father, but probably nowhere would young' Beavers be leas subject to slurs and ostracism on that account than at West Point, where a man Is made to stand solely on his ' own merit. GIRL IN THE CASE Beautiful Young Woman at Hunt Trial. RICH ARRESTED AT HER HOME Roommate of Portland Student at Harvard Maintains His Innocence, and Is Bitter Toward His FelloTV-Prlsoner. CAMBRIDGE. Mars., June 27. (Special.) A beautiful young girl, whose name the police withhold, but who Is known as the daughter of a wealthy Boston business LEADING FIGURES IN THE UNEARTHING OF THE POSTAL FRAUDS Joseph L. Brlstoiv. man, now appears in the Harvard burg lary case, for which Guy L. Hunt, .of Portland, Or., and F. E. Rich,, qf Wln- throp, aro held. Rich was arrested at this young woman's Summer home In Kennebunk. Me., and ahe accompanied him when the officers brought him back to Cambridge. It was said that she was married to Hunt, but this he denies, and Rich also denies that she Is his wife, al though he Is deeply Interested in her. Rich still maintains his Innocence, and is very bitter toward Hunt, whom he says has lost much money lately in gambling. Hunt is a bright fellow, he says, but never studied until just before "exams," when he would somehow pull through with high marks in all his studies. Hunt is said to havo received no money from his parents lately, owing to his pro pensity to spend it too freely. He has been going at a rather fast pace, and his allowance was not sufficient to keep up the dizzy round. The young woman- in the case was in court during the hearings, but all efforts to learn her identity beyond tho fact that she lived in Wakefield have proved un availing. She takes the matter very coolly, as If she knew a great deal about the case. She Is about 20 years old, and is an ac complished musician. She was singing to Rich when the officers appeared on the scene. About $800 worth of tho property has heen recovered. RESENTS INSULTS TO WIFE.

ON HORSE, HE HEADS FOR HILLS Harvey Logaa Was Under SO Years' Sentence Sheriff's Animal Appro priated by the Desperado in Making; His Escape. KXOXVILLE, Tenn.. June 27. Harvey Logan, the Montana tralnrobber under sentence of 20 years imprisonment, es caped from the Knox County Jail this afternoon at 6 o'clock.

Then he forced Bell to take him to the Sheriff's stable and saddle the Sheriff's horse. This done, Logan mounted and rode away In the direction ot the mountains. A posse started In pursuit ot the desper ado within an hour. HARVEY LOGAN'S RECORD. Member of "Kid" Curry Ganp That Held Up Great Northern Train. HELENA. Mont, June 27. (Special.) Harvey Logan was a member of the notor ious "Kid" Curry gang of cattle and horse- thieves which for years operated in North ern. Montana. Te most thrilling affair In which this gang participated was the hold ing up of the Great Northern through train near Wagoner, Mont., on July 4, In order to secure the booty it was nec essary to literally blow the express car to pieces. In doing so a great deal of cur rency contained therein was torn to pieces. but It is estimated that the robbers got away with 130,000 of tho 540,000 unsigned National Bank notes, consigned to the Na tional Bank of Montana at Helena by the Treasury Department at Washington. The train robbers forged the signatures of the bank officials to these notes, and as they used the wrong names, this furnished an important clew. Kid Curry and Longbaugh, two of the gang, were arrested at St. Louis and af terward convicted, receiving long sen tences. Logan, tho third member of the gang, was apprehended near Knoxvllle, af ter killing a policeman, and was finally convicted. Only last week the Court of Appeals affirmed the decision of the Dis trict Court, and he was ordered sent to the Columbus, O., penitentiary. He is a native of Kansas City. Mo., and 26 years old. RACE TROUBLE IS DYING AWAY. "Wilmington Police Now Have Con trol of the Situation. WILMINGTON, Del.. June 27. What was considered the most exciting week in the history of Delaware's principal city. a week stained with the record ot a horri ble lynching and mob violence, closed calmly and quietly tonight. Despite .the fact that peace hovers over the town, it cannot be safely predicted that the pres ent tranquil condition of affairs will con tinue. The entire police force is on duty. and 100 National Guardsmen are stationed in the Armory ready for any duty. The police apparently have control of the sit uation. The bitter feeling exhibited by the whites and blacks against each other ap pears to be rapidly disappearing. There have been no encounters of the races since Thursday night. An order similar to the one sent out last night was again issued this afternoon, and every one of Wil mington's ISO saloons closed at 6 o'clock to remain closed until midnight Sunday or Monday morning. Mayor Fisher sent out a suggestion to the storekeepers generally today to close their places of business at an early hour this evening In order that their employes might go home early. The suggestion. however, was not heeded and the streets were crowded tonight with the usual Sat urday night shoppers. The crowd was an orderly one, and tho police had little more to do thin to kiep the men and boys from congregating on street corners. There were no developments today di rectly connected with the burning at the stake of George F. White. A Wilmington evening newspaper today quotes Rev. M. P. Salter, of Charleston, a bishop of the M E. Church, who Is -visiting in thl3 city. as follows, with regard to the lynching of White: "We are willing to take oft our coats, mount our horses and ride into hell If necessary Ho see that the law is carried out, II one ot our race outrages a wniie woman.

The nude body of a man, which was Identified as that of McCann, the missing horseman, "by his wife, was discovered floating in the water of a deserted stone quarry near Bonfll Station. St. Louis County, this afternoon. Decomposition had set in, and the re mains were hardily recognlzame. An empty pocket-book, several envelopes. some cartridges and a pair of low-cut shoes were found oh the'bbdy. The police have taken Into custody "Lord" Barrlngton, with whom McCann was last seen alive. He is held await ing the result of tho investigation being made by tho police. After the disappear ance of Mr. McCann, Barrlngton was taken Into custody by the St. Louis police, but, despite the fact that he told con flicting stories, was later released, the authorities finding no positive proot or guilt. Charles W. Morrison, a negro servant at the Leland Hotel, kept by Mr. and Mrs. McCann. told Chief of Detectives Des mond today that since the disappearance of his master, Barrlngton had been with Mrs. McCann almost constantly, and that the two had held many spirited conversa tions. To a reporter Morrison said: I "Barrlngton came home on the morn- , ing after McCann disappeared, and I no ticed that his clothes were muddy ana bloody. He said to me, 'Here, get my clothes off quick, and wash them gooa and set all the spots out of them, and put them where nobody will see them. " When Morrison asked where McCann was, Barrlngton replied: "He has gone off. He may never come back. I'm go ing to run the house while he is gone. If he ever does come back. I'll kill him." A trunk belonging to Barrlngton wag captured by the police at -Union Station, where It had been taken today by Barrlngton preparatory to leaving the city. At a late hour tonight Chief of Detec tives Desmond waa sweating the suspect ed man. Barrlngton finally admitted that he went with McCann on the St. Louis, St. Charles & Western Railroad on the night of June 18, but says he does not know where he got off. He admitted, however, lhat he and McCann got off to gether.
