VONPAPENS PAPERS DAMNING CONSPIRACY REVELATIONS. (Press Association War Special.) > JNiiiW YORK, Saturday. y' The Associated Press publishes a loug diso patch, giving the main points of the corre- spondence seized Falmouth upon Captaiflj Von Papen, the German Military Attache af Washington, who was lately recalled at tlio req uest of the American Government. The papers show that Captain V on Pal) made frequent paymtilts to persons charge wtiith being responsible lor explosions at munition works and bridges in Ameiici-4 Captain Von Papen's cheque book, counter" foils, pass books, and letters from his banty at V» ashington show about five hundred items, many of which have to do only with) routine expenditure, but others s hnw PAYMENTS TO VARIOUS PERSONS WHU lian-e ngurea prominently iai the active ties of the Geni.an agents in America, anq at least of one spy—the man who committed suicide in an English ^lison. Several largf pay merits were made to Yon Papen b) Count Bemstorff, German Ambassador all Washington, but most of these were fof salaries or allowances. Several entries show payments by Count Bemstorff to Captaiffl Von Papen made oil account of the War Intelli gence Office. One of the pay-menta on this account was made in October. 1914. for 2,300 dollars. In January, 1915, an entry shows that Von Pa.pen gave to Horn, the man convicted of BLOWING UP TUE MAIN BRIDGE, IW ooltars. On the day before this cheque was issued the Germa.n Embassy paid 2,000 dollars into Von Papen's account. In January, 1915, Von Papen gave a cheque, payable to Amsick and Co., New York, but with the name E. Kupferle in brackets on the counterfoil. Another counterfoil shows tJ:at about two wee.ks before tile Seátt1 ex- plosion of May 30, 1915, Yon Papen sent 1,500 dollars to the German Consulate at Seattle. In February, 1915. Von Papen sent 1,300 dollars to the German Consulate at Seattle. To illustrata the extent of Von Papen's financial opera- tions, his bank book shows that in January, 1915. he received approximately 6,400 dol- lars and paid out 5.000 dollars. Four LITERS OF ESPECIAL INTERBST ? wwe iound among Yon Fappfi ? ellects. lhe first is the letter from Mr. R. Von Mevsen- burg, the German Consul at New Orlea.us, to Captain Von Papen. It run:, as follows: "New Orleans, Dec. 4 "Dear ITerr Van PaPell.-I read with great regret that the fate of recall has indeed over- taken you. I do not suppose that you are very unhappy at being able to shake the DUST OF THIS UNFRIENDLY COUNTRY from off your feet. What cÜefly offands me is that in always giving way to the Govern- ment here- have never found that they are kindly disposed towards us. May the day of reckoning also come here and our Government find again the iron determina- tion with which alone one can make an im- pression in this ocyurtry." METHODS COMPARED. BRITISH AND GERMAN SECRET SERVICES. I NEW7 YORK, Sunday. A deep impression has been caused in this country by the publication of extracts from the correspondence of Captain von Papen, seized by the British authorities at Fal- mouth. The feeling produced by these ad- ditional revtflatior.s is expressed in the edi- torial columns of the leading newspapers to- day. That in the Sun is headed Im be- cile or Blockhead? and charges Captain von Papen with incredible stupidity in his most recent performance. It points out that this gentleman calmly loaded his per- son for which person the United States at the request of the German Government had as a matter of courtesy procured a safe con- duct from Great Britain -with a mass of evi- dence incriminatory of the very activities that were at the same time the occasion of his removal and the subject of solicitous in- quiry by the American police. The." San" proceeds :—"This incident is characteristic of the almost bovine inepti- tude of the many efforts and proceedings of German agents in this country since the war began. We are led to speak here of the re- ma.rka ble and perhaps unexpected contrast between the methods of German agents and those of Great Britain in respect of efficiency, noise lessness, and a bsence of of- fence to the American people. "The attitude of the British Embassy and its personnel has been correct from the be- ginning down to the present. There have been nn English analogies with Dr. Dern- burg, Dr. Albert, or any other of the widely- advertised head centres of Teuton prosely- tism or intrigue. A. io the Silence, swiftness, certainty, aaid intelligence of detective operations, there is no comparison between the secret service of Germany and that of Great Brit- ain. Comment on the wisdom of this re- straint and on the superiority of British methods in producing results is forcibly sug. gested when these results are comparatively considered from the American point of view."
