Cleveland, Ohio, Dec. 2. Penniless
and forsaken by the men ho alleged lie
hud aided, E. V. Hitter, chemist, to-
day made a clean breast of his acliv
sehocd j itics ou behalf of Teuton interests in
I this country. This man, who it wun
claimed yesterday had testified to a
plot to burn the president with liquid
fire, told authorities he had received
i5uo for making affidavit that tho
j Lusitnnia carried 000 tons of loosely
jpucked guncotton when she sailed out
I of New i'ork to her fate in May.
Austrian Consul Ernest Ludwig here,
admitted, too, that ho paid Hitter for
"services and expenses," but ho
jdeujed these hn4 included such nit
affidavit. The lawyer, who Hitter
said, drew up tho affidavit, agreed
with Ludwig's account.
The statement concerning the af
fidavit was forwarded today to Wash
ington along with tho stenographic ro
port quoting Hitter us divulging a plot
to burn up Wilson.
According to Hitter's claim, in bin
cell here today, he made the Lusitnnia.
affidavit in June in the presence of
Baron Zwicdcncck, acting Austrian
ambassador. In it, ho stated he hail
learned personally through investiga
tion with Ludwig's money, thnt, tho
guneotton was shipped from Christ
field, Del., to the Lusitnnia.
. As strengthening this claim, ho
swore that the British embassy prev
iously had called him to Washington
and askej him tho effect salt water
would have if it came into contact
with guneotton. In answer he replied
that certnin kinds would explode.
In addition to his work for tho Ten
ton interests, Hitter claimed British
Vice-consul II. E. Oreshmn here gavo
him money, and G'resham today admit
ted he find advanced some "small
loans" to Hitter.
'He tried to sell mo information,
too," Greshuin claimed, announcing
too that Hitter sought to dispose of hi a
liquid fire invention to the cnnsnlato.
