to take an option on. the place. We

thought so. I did not know at that time
that too work was as difty and disrepu
table, as the district' attorney's office
was mixed up in it ' I just thought It
was work of getting a little informa

' Talk of Threats. .
"In thla conversation, Tatterson be
came quite confidential, arid said that
Attorneys Fouls and Sweek were per
sonal and political enemies of the dis
trict attorney's office, and that Fouts
had treated Fitzgerald in "a dirty way
time and again.. Patterson further said
that Fouts was an old jury briber, and
' it was certain that tha Moore jury had
been fixed, and that ha (Patterson) un
derstood an attempt was being made to
fix the Morris Jury, end asked me If I
wanted to try. and catch tha Jury brib
ers, who he said were Fouts and Sweekj
a and he further said that Fitzgerald
wanted to catch them in the act, and
end it all, as there has been jury brib-
. ing going' on lor ft long ume.
" 'I'm in for It,' I replied, and he tqld
tne to z6 and nut It up to Fouts to reach
the Jury. Patterson also told m where
the office of Fouts Is, cautioned me
" about helng careful, but left it largely
with me to present the proposition. He
said that if Fouts wanted any references
to refer to him (Patterson), and that
he would put me In right. I went to
Fouts as has already been , given out,
" and as soon as I saw him, I reported
back to Patterson. I saw Fouts again,

Sent to S'is Tarton.
"I immediately reported this to Patter
son, and he said that was fine. He then
told me to see Barton, the juror. I went
o'ver to ess Barton early In the evening.
It was not dark. I met him In the yard.
'Is this Mr. Barton, the Juror In
the. Morris case?' I asked. He said be
as. l told Tilm to put on his hat and
coat and take a little walk with me. He
ent to the front veranda and told his
ife to get his hat and coat, and we
tarted to walk around the block.
"I again asked him if he was on the
Morris case, and he looked at me and
said ' I had to tell him who I was. and
further said: 1 have been expecting
this, and before i talk business you have
got to come through and show me who
you are from.' , '
Barton further added that he would
not be tripped up by the district attor
ney's office, of the other side either,
He asked me again who I was, and I
gave him my card. Barton said he
would think it over until morning, and
that he would meet me the next morn

Second and Washington streets. I met

me that he would go in on the deal of

tool, and has been made to stand the
burden of the fight between the . two
factions. They give the following state
ment: X. '
.'Regarding Guilford's staternent we
believe every word of it Thiols based
upon the fact that every overt act
available in connection with this case,
outside of what the boy says, tallies ex
actly with his. statement We have
made a most thorough and searching
nvestigatlon, interviewing every one
connected on both sides of the case, and
tracing every step he has taken since
his arrival in the city up to the day
of his arrest and we are absolutely pos
itive there can be no discrepancies in
his last story.
We believe the boy has been , made
the scapegoat of a dirty band that
should be broken up. The boy. is not a
bad fellow, but fell into hands that
quickly led him Into Questionable ways.
We want a hearing as early aa possible.
and want to show the motives, and all
the devilish work done by the gang to
which we have referred.
"We further propose to place the
blame exactly where It belongs, and will
carry this case to the highest court in
the land if necessary. The "boy's, father
now has taken, up tha fight a well as
ourselves, and he is a highly reputable
state officer in Massachusetts. . The
boy comes from a good family, and has
hoed his own row, and has been led into
this by some or tne dirtiest people in
the country. In the circuit court hear
ing' we expect to show a great tnany
things that will surprise the people of
this city, which cannot be revealed s,t
this time." ,

IS NOT CLOSE FRIEND
OF J. J..FITZGERALD
Bob Patterson, connected with the
Old Mill" saloon at Seventh and
Flanders streets, who Guilford says, put
him up to "reach" the Juror so, blame
could be placed upon Attorneys Fouts
and Sweek, today s made tne rouowmg
statement about his relations with
Guilford: . A
'I first met Guilford In the Arcade
saloon, not in the "Old Mill" saloon.
One day he met me and told about the
private detective, whom he said was
trying to find out about graft in tha
north end. Later he said he was work
ing for a real estate concern and was
Ustina places for sale or rent - He told
me he was loomng zor sucn places.
"I then asked hint about getting the
lease on a room at the rear of the
Arlington hotel at Sixth and Couch
streets. 1 bad ft Chinaman who wanted
a room for ft chop suey parlor. I asked
the boy to do what he could to get the
place. I did not want it for Fitzgerald,
Klernan or Senosky, as he has said.
- Says Guilford Lies,
'It was for . the Chinaman. I also
asked tne boy to find out what he could
get the Mitchell rooming bouse at
Cevehth and Flanders streets for. as
the proprietor of, the West Park hotel
had asked me to see If I could get It
for him. If Guilford says that I asked
him to get It for Fitzgerald, Klernan
and Senosky, he deliberately lies, ror
have never done, any business for them
"Things went along until one day
when Guilford asked me if I knew At
torneys Fouta and SWeek. I said I did.
He asked me if they were reliable. He
further said he thought ha would, see
if they had any papers to serve or had
anything he could do. I told him they
were first class men, and that if ha
could get in with them, be might dd
well. I did not see him very much j from now,
until na was arrestea. v'yo.
ITo Jury Eriblng Talk.
All his meetlnes with me might
have taken place, but we never talked
of jury bribing, or anything In that
fine. His story of meeting me after
seeing Fouts and Sweek may be so, but
the part about making reports how he
was getting along with the Jury brmmg
business Is absolutely false.
'The reason I was in the polioe court
the morning he was arraigned was that
had been asked to intercede for. a
man by' the nam of Ryan, who was ar
reste'd for being a vagrant I don't re
member who it was that asked me to see
what T poulrt do for Rvan. I talked to
' - ' - I
Nick Beutgen about the Ryan case and .
also spoke to Detective Maloney.
"All that stuff about me being inti
mate with Fitzgerald is false. I have
had a few business dealing with Fitz
