SPECIAL,. Albany. N. T.. Nov. 11.
President Wilson, returning to Wash
ington for the first time in two months,
tonight witnessed a demonstration at
Troy and Albany in celebration of the
outcome of the election. Taking for
granted that he had been re-elected,
tbo crowds at both places cheered him
HSain and again. The President
lnughed and smiled and thanked them
for their congratulations.
At Albany a procession, including
bftnds, was arranged in his honor. This
railroad station was crowded and many
persons rushed forward to shake Presi
dent Wilson's hand. Ex-Governor Jlynn.
of New York, who was temporary
chairman of the St. Louis convention
that nominated the President, was at
the station with other Democratic

As President Wilson's train rollea
into Albany, torpedoes were exploded
on the tracks and whistles shrieked.
I'or a moment the President held his
hands to his ears. Earlier in the day
he had asked that no elaborate celebra
tion in his honor be held at the station.
Before the President arrived the crowd
had paraded through the business sec
tion of the. city. President Wilson
shook hands with many persons at

of peace and prosperity," shouted one
"Thank you." replied the President.
"How's baby Sayre?" asked another.

If lie delivered the papers.
Embassy officials said Graves threat
ened to turn over some of the docu
ments to White House officiate II the
$3000 were not forthcoming.
Letters Sot Postmarked.
The letters showed no postmark and
officials of the embassy were convinced
ttiat they had been obtained in some
manner from a confidential messenger,
whose identity (still is undisclosed.
Prince Hatzfeldt communicated with
the District Attorney's office here as
Boon as Graves left his office. An
other meeting was arranged, and yes
terday Graves telegraphed from New
York that he would present himself
later in the day. Prince Hatzfeldt put
$3000 into an envelope and, with two
agents of the Department of Justice,
went to his home here to await Graves.
He failed to make his appearance,'
This morning Graves called at the
Rmbassy and requested an appoint
ment with Prince Hatzfeldt at his
home. A few hours later he arrived
there and conversed with the counsellor
for half an hour. One Federal agent
was hiding behind a door in the room.
Another was in the street outside. A
police detective was nearby.
Money Is (Shown.
It is said that Prince Hatzfeldt
showed Graves the $3000 and that the
latter said he would go to his hotel
and get some of the documents he did
riot have with him. Leaving the house,
he walked into the arms of a Federal
agent and was taken to the Depart
ment . of Justice where for hours he
was examined by A. Bruce Bielaski. in
charge of the-bureau of investigation,
and his assistants. At the end of the
examination, air. Bielaski swore out a
warrant. All the papers In Graves'
possession were taken from him.
The letter which Graves is alleged
to have said would prov'e "embar
rassing" to Countess von Bernstorff
was couched. Federal investigators as
serted, in, "endearing terms" and signs,
w ith initials only. It was asserted by
the officials that the communication
was from a woman cousin of Count
von Bernstorff, who has been taking
care of his and the Countess' business
affairs in Germany.
fi raven faultlessly Attired.
Graves' first appearance in public
after his arrest was at the office of
United States Commissioner Taylor,
where, surrounded by Federal agents
and police detectives, he was brought
for arraignment. He was faultlessly
attired, swung a light walking stick,
and viewed the proceedings with a
faint smile until the question of bail
was brought up. He requested that,
.should he be unable to secure a bonds
man, he be permitted to spend the
night in a hotel under guard of detec
tives, whose expenses he offered to pay.
"I should like," he said, "to escape
spending the night in a cell."
It was ordered, however, that he be
locked up unless bail should be fur
nished. A professional bondsman lur
nished the required sum.
Americanism Is Aucrlrd.
In reply to questions. Graves made
the following statement to newspaper
"I have running important to say. I
may never make a complete statement.
I am an American in every, sense of
the word. I have American ideas. I
have declared my intention of becom
ing a citizen of this country and have
taken out my first papers.
I am now a writer, a lecturer and
lately have been writing scenarios
about my experiences as an interna
tional spy.
'I have been in this country two
years and nine months. Yes, it is true
that I was once connected with the
British Foreign Office, but I am no
'I came to Washington for the sole
purpose of disposing of the papers. I
had no intention of blackmailing the
Countees von Bernstorff. 1 object to
the charge of blackmail; I do not like
the word. I made no attempt to com

deal with women. I dealt with Prince

"I will not at this time discuss the
contents,, of the papers I had. I will
say, however, that I was just employ
ing the name methods which the Ger
man Embassy has used in this country
for the past two years and four
Clifford Grant? chief of detectives, in
a statement tonight said:
There was nothing really official so
far as 1 know about the letters this
man had. There were three letters
from the" same person. Each wound up
with the words 'my dear.' They were
written in the form of a diary appar
ently with a view of keeping a record
until opportunity should present itself
for dispatching the contents to the
United States. Of course, there were
some things in them which tiie British
censor might not have passed.
It seems that the letters were en
trusted to some one aboard the Oscar
II. who after receiving them saw an
opportunity to use them. Graves ad
mitted that he wanted to make money
out of the letters- He said he paid
$2400 for them and wanted to make a
$600 profit."
Revolver In Carried.
Officials of the Department of Justice
tonight communicated with agents in
New York. Graves said he lived there
at 63 West Sixty-ninth street. An ef
fort will be made to secure certain
evidence desired and material wit
When Graves was searched detectives
found in one of his pockets a small
combination knife and pistol. The de
tectives handled the odd weapon care
fully until Graves told them it was
"just a noise maker." and that - the
bullet it carried "would not even pierce
a man's coat."
It was said at the. embassy that
Graves said he had in his possession
a letter to the managing editor- of a
New York newspaper from its corre
spondent in Berlin. The embassy does
not know what became of tins letter.
The papers taken from Graves today
remain in the hands of the Depart
ment of Justice, and will be used as
A high official of the embassy said
"We had this man arrested because
we wanted to let it be known that no
person attached directly or indirectly
to this embassy can be made a victim
of- blackmailing schemes. We have po
secrets. t
How Letters Came Is Mystery.
"It is quite true that some of the
correspondence was -in 'cipher. We do
not know yet. however, what it is all
about. We are most anxious to have
it determined who brought the letters
to this country and how they happened
to tall into the hands of Graves. We
presume the authorities will find an
swers to those questions."
It was said tonight that the Countess
von Bernstorff probably would not be
asked to appear personally against
While attempting to secure his
release. Graves told the bondsman that
he knew Robert W. Woolley, publicity
manager of the Democratic National
Committee. The bondsmen said h com
municated with Woolley, who declared
he had met Graves only twice and
knew nothing for or against him.
Graves, in his widely published so
called exposure of international spying.
described many sensational episodes in
cluding purported interviews with the
Emperor of Germany, how he was dec
orated for his services,, the way in
which he secured and sent to the gov
ernment information of alleged extreme
importance and what he claimed to be
the whole of the German spy system,
lie freely admitted that he had been
in prison in England and in American
slang, tinged with a German accent,
told of his flight to this country.
Graves is about 45 years old.
Countess' Name Not Used.
Graves left for New York late to
night after his bail had been arranged.
He issued a statement denying that
the Countess von Bernstorff's name had
been mentioned in his talk with Prince
Hatzfeldt. He declared the $3000 he
asked for was solely to cover the ex
penses of conveying the documents to
"In my business transactions with
Prince Hatzfeldt," he said, "I consid
ered that I was rehdering the embassy
a great service, letting the original let
ters go into the hands of the embassy
for $3000. The parties who conveyed
the letters from Germany to the United
States incurred $2480 expense. Not
one cent of the $3000 would have been
mine. The benefit to me in handing
these letters over to the. German em
bassy was in what good that service
to the embassy would be to me in
Germany. These documents were offi
cial and would have helped me in cer
tain quarters in Germany to get what
lias been long overdue me in the way
of money owed me there.
"At no time in my interviews and
conversations "with Prince Hatzfeldt
was Countess von Bernstorff mentioned.
In fact. Countess von Bernstorff had
nothing at all to flo with it. . It is
true the letters were addressed to her,
but that was just a 'cover.' These
letters were entirely official documents.
I have not said they were brought on
the Oscar II. That's surmised."
Graves said two secret German em
bassy attaches were among the group
of spectators at Commissioner Taylor's

A Well-Known Actress Tells How She
Darkened Her Gray Hair With a
Simple Home-Made Mixture.
Miss Blanche Rose, a well-known
actress, who darkened her gray hair
with a simple preparation which she
mixed at home. In a recent interview
at Chicago, 111., made the following
statement: 'Any lady or gentleman
can darken their gray hair and make
it soft and glossy with this simple
recipe, which they can mix at home.
To a half pint of water add 1 ounce of
bay rum, a small box of Barbo Com
pound, and ounce of glycerine. These
ingredients can be brought at any drug

Substantial additions have been made
to the Armenian and Syrian relief fund,
both through the activities of the wom
en's committee and by contributions
made by various organizations and pri
vate individuals. The contributions re
ceived during the last two days are
also from many out-of-town sources.
The actual benefit to humanity that
the contributions will accomplish are
not likely to be matched by any other
amount that people will be called upon
to give. Many, realizing this, are giv

sparingly at other times.
An example of the helplessness of
these Armenians and Syrians is shown
in personal narratives printed In the
November Atlantic Monthly. The fol

at night taken from their beds to the
