Mr. Perkins was first called just pre

resumed immediately after the recess
and was on the stand when adjourn
ment was taken for the day.
The climax of the day came when
Mr. Perkins was asked concerning an
entry of $48,702 in a ledger, marked
"Ordered paid by the President." Mr.
Randolph, the treasurer of the New
York Life Company, who had been on
the stand earlier in the day, had been
sharply questioned as to the purport
of this entry, but he was unable to
explain it. He thought no one but th4
president could. Mr. Perkins had been
called to testify as to some other trans
actions and after a recess he was ask
ed to produce the check. It was made
out payable to J. P. Morgan & Co., and
Mr. Perkins frankly stated it was a
contribution to the national Republi

paid to Cornelius N. Bliss.. Mr. Per

careful deliberation. It .must not be

Mr. Hughes brought out that this ex
