Iron Said lo Have tlccn Put In Life
Washington, Oct. 4. An alleged
conspiracy, which haa been tlovntoped
by olllclals of tho department of com
merce nnd labor and of the department
of Justice May resulted In tho arrest
at Camden, N. J., of J. II. Htono, II.
C. Otilntard, Charles W. Runs and
Jamea Huss, ofMcera of the Nonpareil
Cork workn. They were apprehended
by the United States marshal for the
dlatrict of New Jersey, nnder an Indict
ment found on September 29 by the
United Statea grand Joiy at Trenton,
charging them, nnder section 6440, of
the revised statutes of the United
States, with conapiilng to dofraud tho
goverment and prejudice the adminis

pleased cork bloeka for use In making
life preservers, each of which bloeka
contained in Ita center a piece of bar
Iron about six Inches long and weigh
ing eight ounces. The iron bar was
inserted and concealed in tho block
for the purpose of Increasing the weight
to the legal requirement of six potinda
of good cork for each life preserver.
The men arrested will be ananged lie
fore the United Statea dlatrict court of
New Jeraey, to plead to the Indictment.
Karly in Angus! , David Kahnewell
era' Bona, manufacturer of life pre
servers In Now York city, ordered from
the Nonpareil Cork worka at Camden,
N. J., bloeka of compressed corks for
1,760 life preservers. Eight of these
corka are used In each preserver, and
the United Statea law requires that
the eight blocks aball contain six
pounds of coik. When the cork
blocks were delivered, it waa discov
ered that eight of the blocks welghod
only 6i pounda.
Kahneweitera' Sons thereupon wrote
the Nonpareil Cork worka and that
company replied that it would adjust
the matter by sending to Kahnewellera'
Sons eome extra heavy bloeka, one of
which could be used In each life pre
lervoi, thus Increasing Ita weight to
the legal requirement. In due time
the bloeka arrived. They were ao
heavy as lo arouse suspicion. One of
them was broken, and imbedded in ita
cental waa found an iron bar aix
Inches long, one inch wide and a quar
ter of an inch thick, weighing eight
ounces. The Kahneweitera again
wrote to the cfllcera of the Nonpareil
Cork worka, demanding to know what
they meant by putting Iron in the
cork bloeka, nnd informing them that
as Kubneweiloia' Bona were obliged to
put their namea on each preserver,
euch a fraud would ruin their busi
ness. According to the indictment a letter
was received in leply euggestlng that
the Kahnewellera were foolish to make
so much trouble about a small affair of
Further examination of the "extra
Heavy" blocks disclosed tho (act that
each of them contained an iron bar
similar to that which waa found in the
Aral one. In all 261 of the extra
heavy bloeka were received by Kahne
weltera' Bona. Kahnewellera' Bona
communicated with Robe't S. Rodie,
supervising inspector of the ateamboat
inspecting service for the dlatrict of
