1904, instructing him to accept no
such contribution, or to return it if it
had been accepted. He said he had
been repeatedly informed that no
contribution had been made.
"Cortelyou told me that," he
added, "and Mr. Bliss told Mr. Loeb
that and only the other day Cortel
you informed me again that ho had
been informed by Mr. Bliss that no
such contribution had been received."
The colonel said he knew nothing
of $100,000 contributions by J. P.
Morgan or George J. Gould until Mr.
Morgan and George R. Sheldon testi
fied before the committee yesterday.
He knew H. C. Frick had contributed
heavily. He said, and was ready to
contribute again if it had been de
sired. Colonel Roosevelt said he had
never denied that corporations gave
to the 1904 campaign fund. At that
time he declared, it was not con
sidered improper for them to con
tribute. He had made a rule for the
national committee, he added, that
no such contribution should be re
ceived from any source if it carried
with it an implied or direct promise
of return or favor from the administration.
President Taft discussed interna

he would make another effort to

provided that the burden is evenlv
distributed on the ships of all coun
tries there is no discrimination
within the terms of the treaty."
The railroad interests attacked this
section of the treaty, although it is
not the one of vital interest to them
but because the other sections
opened no point of attack. After the
English government has presented its
protest, being forced thereto on ac
count of Canadian pressure, that will
probably end the matter. Omaha

THAT ENGLISH PROTEST
From tho press dispatches that
have been sent out from New York
an impression has been created that
all England is up in arms on account
of the passage of tho canal bill, but
as the London papers come to hand
that does not seem to be the case
at all. It is very evident that the
thing that troubles the transporta
tion interests the most is not free
passage for American ships engaged
in the coastwise trade which they say
violates the Hay-Pauncefote treaty,
but the section that prohibits rail
road owned ships from passing
through the canal at all.
Several of the London papers call
attention to the fact that England
can have no cause of complaint on ac
count of the free tolls. Tho London
Nation, which holds a very high po
sition in the estimation of the edu
cated class in that city, says:
"America, as a protectionist coun
try, has stringent navigation laws.
No foreign shin is allowed to enorficA
in coastwise traffic between American
ports, and, moreover, her courts have
given the widest possible interpreta
tion to the term 'coastwise traffic'
"This had obvious bearings on the
provisions of the Hay-Pauncefote
treaty. Ita provisions for enualitv of
treatment could not apply to vessels
engaged' In coastwise traffic and using
the canal because only American ves
sels in fact were so engaged. If the
treaty meant that American ships
which enjoyed a monopoly under the
navigation laws when plying round
Cape Horn between the eastern and
western coasts of America should
lose that monopoly when they used
the canal it should certainly have
said bo, but no one ever suEreroRtnri
that tho treaty suspends the opera
tion of the navigation laws when the
coasting trade goes through the
"The greater discrimination in
cludes tho less, and as the naviga
tion laws exclude all but American
ships from the coastincr trail a Ti
grievance of discrimination in tolls
upon coastwise traffic would seem to
be somewhat .unreal. The coasting
trade is already an American monop
oly, and tho imposition or relaxation
of dues upon It would seem to be
a purely domestic affair.
"It -is true that the exemption of
American coastwise ships from all
tolls would seem to throw an unfair
burden on the overseas trade, but
