New York Kansas Cky
made "without expectation of re
turn." After saying he had con
tributed $160,000 to the fund of
1904, and $30,000 to the fund of
1908, Mr. Morgan turned to the com
mittee and exclaimed earnestly:
"I want it distinctly understood
that J. P. Morgan & Co. never made
a single subscription to any election
with any promise or expectation of
anything or return in any way,
shape or manner and we never made
it without we deemed it advantageous
for the government and the people.
We never had a communication from
any candidate for money and any
thing that we did or done was on my
suggestion and we were all in har
mony because we thought it was
necessary for the good and the busi
ness of the people. There was never
a committment or any expectation of
any return and we never got return
either from anybody."
This statment followed a series of
questions by Senator Pomerene as to
whether the New York financiers had
conferred and ascertained the atti
tude of various candidates toward
business before making contributions.
Mr. Morgan repeatedly denied that
there was any concerted action
among New York business interests
in support of the republican candi
date in 1904.
Mr. Morgan said that after malt
ing his original contribution, of
$100,000 in 1904, he was importuned
to give another $30,000 which he did.
This, he understood, was part of the
so-called Harriman fund and was
turned over to B. B. Odell for use
in the New York state fund.
Charles H. Duell, assistant treas
urer of the 1904 fund who followed
Mr. Morgan on the stand, said that
all of the accounts of the committee
were open to Mr. Cortelyou, the
Theodore Roosevelt was the star
witness October 4. The following is
from the Associated Press report con
cerning his testimony:
In reference to the Harriman fund
of $240,000, raised in 1904, Colonel
Roosevelt declared the statements of
J. P. Morgan, George R. Sheldon and
others had fully corroborated his
earlier statements that this fund
was raised expressly for the New
York state campaign and had not
been solicited by him for his own sup
port in the fight for the republican
campaign that year.
"There was not one word spoken
by Mr. Harriman or by me having
any reference to any collecton of
funds for the national campaign," he
said, referring to his interview with
Mr. Harriman in October 1904. "On
the other hand the request was from
Mr. Harriman, that, inasmuch as we
had ample funds, for the national
campaign was safe, we could help him
out in the state campaign.
The sessions of the committee were
Colonel Roosevelt arrived at the
committee room fully ten minutes be
fore the hour of opening. His pro
gress into the building was marked
with cheers from a throng that
Burgea tnrougu the corridors.
Colonel Roosevelt was nlnnr? i
chair on a little square platform,
from which he looked down upon the
table at which sat Senators Clapp,
Oliver, Pomerene and Paynter. Wil
liam Loeb, jr., his former private
secretary, now collector of customs
at New York, came with him and
occupied a seat at his left.
Tho former president turned re
peatedly to ask Mr. Loeb for facts
and records, and at the end of his
testimony Mr. Loeb himself took the
stand to corroborate statements
Colonel Roosevelt had made. Expres
sions that brought laughter from
committee and spectators inter
spersed the colonel's remarks
throughout tho day. Once he said
