are missing and the death list may be

Many placer mines are ruined. The

Washington, June 2,—The sugar
trust investigating committee late
yesterday afternoon examined Sena-
tors Harris and Mills and concluded
the sitting for the day with the te -
mony of Secretary Carlisle, o
denied explieity all charges made in
Mr. Edwards' letter, except one. This
one was the assertion that while con-
ferring with the committee he, Car-
lisle, on one occasion, at the sugges-
tion of the members of the commit*
tee, and using their figures, put a
sugar schedule into shape, a> he did
other parrf^rraj :is in the bill. This,
the secretary said, he had done. He
declared he had not made such a
visit as he was represented as making
to the committee to demand the sugar
interest be cared for in the tariff bill
because of the Democratic party's ob-
ligation to tho sugar trust.
The examination of Senator Harris
and Mills completed the inqury among
members of the finance Committee
and senators who assisted in tho pre-
paration of the bill. Both senators
denied any knowledge of tho sugar
trust in connection with legislation,
and also denied that Mr. Carlisle had
demanded protection for sugar.
Senator Mills was asked if it was
true, as had been reported,that Mr. Car-
lisle had given Mr. Havem^yer of the
sugar trust a letter of introduction to
himself, lie said this* was a fact, but
he had declined to receive the letter.
