to the Tune of $47,500
Assoclated Press Cable
WASHINGTON, D. C, Oct. 2.Sen
ator Dixon, manager of Roosevelt's
campaign, testified before the Senate
investigating committee this morning
that Dr: Hanna, Geo. W. Perkins and
Frank Munsey gave $25,000 each In
addition to the amount of campaign
contributions set before their names
yesterday. He charged that Charles
Taft has given $600,000 to aid the
campaign of his - brother, William
Howard Taft, for reelection.
That Roosevelt's campaign in 1904
was backed almost exclusively by the
corporations was the testimony of G.
R. Sheldon, present treasurer of the
Republican national campaign com
mittee, who testified that at the time
in question the Standard Oil Com
pany, J. Plerpont Morgan,'H. C. Friek
and George Gould each contributed
$100,000 to aid Roosevelt; .and he
makes the further astounding asser
tion that of the total campaign fund
collected for "Roosevelt, the corpora

one-half per cent.
