SEATTLE, Wash.. Jll'.y 20 (Special )
Careful and unbiased study of . the

in the Congressional investigation of
charges against Federal Judge Corne

for Impeachment on but one of the nine
charges filed against the jurist: to

another charge presented' to thel sub

From all the evidence adduced on
both sides and practically all of it was

subcommittee's attention, and has in

it was not contained In the Congression

One of the charges contained in the
affidavits against the jurist, that alleg

quenter of the tenderloin before it was

committee, by common agreement. Out
of eourtesy to the judge and members
of his family, the charge was passed.
The first matter to be probed, deal
ing with the disfranchisement of Leon
ard Olsson, Socialist-Laborite, occupied
but two days of the committee's time.
Ample evidence was produced by Gov

District-Attorney's office, to the effect
that Judge Hanford had annulled
Olsson's papers solely on the ground
Olsson's political beliefs, which have
figured so largely in discussions of the

cured Names of Men Who
Killed Gambler Are Secret.
NEW YORK. July 20. (Special.)
The men who rode to the Metropole
Hotel early Tuesday morning in Louis
Llbby's gray automobile and there shot
and killed Herman Rosenthal, the gam
bler, who had so long been a thorn- in
the side of certain police officials, have
fled from this city.
This Is the explanation which the po
lice offer for their failure to arrest a
single one of the murderers.
Deputy Commissioner Dougherty, who
has been In charge of the investigation
of Rosenthal's death, virtually admit
ted today that the reason none of the
men had been caught Is because they
cannot be found.
.ln of All -Mrs Kum.
Mr. Dougherty made no secret of the
fact that the names of all of the men
are in his possession. He does not hesi
tate to say that they are well known
men who in ordinary circumstances
could be rounded up in a few hours. He
refused positively to give their names
or say if he had clews as to where any
of them have gone. He would not pre
dict how long It will be before he is
able to run down the assassins, al
though he did say that the progress he
had made so far is more than satisfac
tory and that he is confident he will
ultimately get the criminals. It la
known that dearrinUnan certain men
have been sent broadcast throughout
the country by the police of this city.
In connection with these circulars
the police officials of other cities have
been asked to keep secret the names of
the men wanted.
Mr. 'Dougherty said that there Is no
certainty that the men he is after know
that they are wanted. If their names
become public, he said, they will know
it and the difficulty of getting them
would be greatly increased.
Rose Important Prisoner.
In "Jack" Rose, the gambler friend
of Lieutenant Becker, and the man who
hired the car in which the murderer
of Rosenthal rode to and from the scene
of their crime, Mr. Dougherty declares
he has a prisoner more important than
all of the others put together.' The
Deputy Commissioner says that he is
confident- the murder of Rosenthal was
plotted In the afternoon or early even
ing and that the men who rode in Llb
by's car were fully aware of what was
to be done.
In this he included Rose, who is now
in the Tombs, but who will be arraigned
before elthr the Coroner or City Mag
istrate Monday. The police will fight
any effort to have Rose released on ball,
although it Is understood Rose's at
torney will make a fight to liberate
"I am willing to tell the public all
that I can about the progress we are
making in this case," said Mr. Dough
erty today, "but r will not tell anything
that will retard our work. We have
the car in which the murderers rode to
and from the crime. We have the man
who owns the car and the man who
drove It that night. v
"More Important than anything else.
