Court Stenographer's Record
In Cleveland, Ohio, Re
sponsible for the Story
Cleveland, Ohio, Dec. 1. An attempt
to end the lives of President Wilson
and Secretary of War Garrison with
liquid fire on their clothes was pro
posed recently by "two men in high
official life," according to informa
tion alleged to have been obtained by
County Prosecutor Locher through a
court stenographer's record purporting
to have been takeu while Locher exuin
incd E. W. Hitter, a chemist.
Bitter, however, denied ho had ever
made such a statement.
Charles DcWoody, a special agent of
the department of justice, who has been
investigating bomb plots, swore out a
warrant charging issuance of a fraud
ulent $50 check by Bitter.
Ritter admits thut he invented the
original "liquid fire."
Bitter asserted that his "enemies"
caused his arrest, misled by Miss Mc
Darby, to whom ho gave tho alleged
fraudulent check.
Ho is held in $5,000 bail on the check
charge but he maintains he is ignorant
Of any munitions plots.
He passed hero under the alias, of
Von Rettaghe or Rcttigi, the self-styled
son of an Austrian count. He is 38
years old.
The stenographic report was in part
as follows:
"Two men, high in official life, came
to mo and proposed that my liquid fire
be sprinkled on President Wilson and
Secretary Garrison,"
"No, no," I exclaimed, "that would
be terrible. I'd never do it."
"Why wasn't it proposed to shoot
the president"
"They said shooting would mean ar
rest. With the liquid fire, so yon
shoot it from n rubber ball upon a per
son's clothes and leave. In a few
minutes poof and the liquid fire is in
flames." '
DeWoody has ordereiV the alleged rec
ord sent to Washington.
