Howard -W. Guilford, irjdicted for an attempt to bribe H. M.
Barton, a member of the W. Cooper Morris jury, says he has been
'"double crossed" by the district "attorney's office.
Locked in the county jail under indictment for attempted brib
ery, and unable so far to raise the required $1000 bond, Guilford
thas smade a. statement which he" says is the true statement of the
facts of the transaction, and which puts "Bob" Patterson, notorious
as a divekeeper in the city, and L J. Fitzgerald, chief deputy district
attorney, in the role of the insticrators of the plot to offer Barton a
'bribe for the purpose of smirchinsr
" represented Morris, and who are
r ltzgerald.
"Count' Morris Senosky and
' Kiernan, personal and business associates of fitzjjerald and rattef
on, are also mentioned by Guilford
;up of the deal. .' '
r Accordinsr to Guilford's statement, he was out uo to the at
tempt to bribe Barton by Patterlon, who told him, that the district
attorney's office, Fitzgerald, Senosky, and Kiernan wanted to catch
Fouts and Sweek "with the goods on them." Acting on this infor
" mation, Guilford, says, he went to Fouts and put the, proposition of
bribing Barton up to. him. All during the course of the negotia
tions he reported to Patterson, he says, who assured him that he
would be taken care of, and that,.if he were to be caught, all that
Fitzgerald would want of him was his testimony. He was given
to understand that Fitzeerald was after Fouts and Sweek, and told
. that his work was eood. V '
,; .. After: his. arrest, Guilford says,- he still thought Fitzgerald
would protect him, as Patterson had "promised, and it was only
lately that it dawned upon nim.tnar, iMtzgeraici .was giving nim tne
"double cross." ' . . -' ' , - - ' : -
Because of this, Guilford says, he ,has told the whole truth to
v hip attorneys. Campbell and Geeslin,,andJiis statement as-given -to
Ihem, is as follows: -,
Searching for Graft. :
i "In my Btatement. to .Fitzgerald and
the detectlwg on the day of my arrest,
I told how I vas working i for the
Parcrof f Detective bureau and wat sent
to Bob Patteraon's place to hang around
and find out what I could about graft.
I represented to Patterson that J was
working with a. real estate ; and bond
concern, but never 'told hint Just what
one. We talked considerable, and the
. longer J was "around the place the more
friendly Pattersbn appeared to be to me.
('"One day, I made a hit with Patter
on, when a drunken man attempted to
bluff me out on ' a little argument
Patterson met me onjthe street the next
day, nd asked me to come down to his
aloon, as he had something to talk
about I went down that afternoon,
and hVuld he could not talk about It,
" but for me to come back'the next day,
and lie would have more time. I went
down, and Patterson took me aside..
You want to get to the top, don't
" youT .he sald''.J..'t. .. .".,.-'-.
wl replied Ves. , ' '.w:
"Well, there are two ways to get
to the top,' said Patterson. 'I can put
you there If you are the right kind of
stuff. Now, one way is like this: An
old country man comes to the city, seen
, a 11 story building, and begins to climb
the stairs to the top. ; He finally gets
there. But ft bright, young fellow
cornea along soon after, sees the ; ele
vator, takes It and beats the, old man
to the top. Now, young man. you want
to tike the elevator and get. there in ft
hurry, I believe I can show you how to
got there
Wonld Be Bhowm
""Show me,' I answered. '
That same afternoon, Patterson ftnd
I. met at Third and' Morrison streets,
; and he said to me, 'Now the election ,is
coming on, and there Is going to be
some rich pickings this fall. There is a
late being made up, which consists of
' Cameron for governor and , Fitzgerald
for district attorney. There la ft big
campaign fund that is being made up,
ftnd it will be about $50,000. He told me
'many things about this, and who was to
hold the 'Jackpot end who some of. the
-heavy contributors were. He further said
uiat if I proved to be all right, I could
be assured that there would be con
" fllcKranle work to be done nnder cover,
