ltto cf Wisconsin was the st ir witness
to-day before the House cimmittee
Inquiring into the Gore bribery elfurRe
In connection with lawyers' contracts
with the l'ivo Civilmil Tribes of Okla
homa. Senator 1.1 Kollette res tilted that
Senator (tore told him of a conversation
ho had had with Jake Hamon, in which
Hamou hid offered a bribe, or at least
made a proposition that amounted to an
attempt to bribe. The offer is alleged
to have been made in connection with
legislation pending la-t. year providing
for the approval of contract- made by
J. K. McMurr.iy with the Choctaw and
Mr. Hamon wanted Senator fiore to
withdraw his opposition to the contracts
According to the charge-, lie euggi'sted
that if Mr. ftoie could see his way clear
to let the contracts g, through without
protesting It would lie worth J2.1,noo to
him, and possibly more. This is the sub
htance of til" tory as it was told In the
Senate by Mr. (tore a year ago, and Sena
tor l.n Kollette said to-day that it was
substantially the story that .Mr. (iore
had nnrrated to him a mouth before the
contracts were to have been taken up in
Jake Hamon has testified in substance
that instead of offering n bribe he wa
in fact practically solicited for a loan.
Senator I.i Kollette corroborated the
statement of Senator Gore tliat ho had
made known the alleged attempt to bribe
him long before he made the disclosure
to the Senate. Senator Ii Kollette testi
fied that he had advised Mr. (tore to make
a public statement of the case. Mr.
Oore was disinclined to do so 011 the
ground, he wild, that the making of such
a charg" would lay him open to pro-e-cution.
A pavment of t'.VyinO made bv the
authority of Congress to the (Inn of
McMurray, .Mansfield V Corni-h for legal
services performed for the Oklahoma
tribiM also came up before the House
committee to-day This payment is
known as the "big fee " There has been
n lot of gossip in Washington about it
for a long time, and the indications are
that Interesting light will be thrown upon
it before the inquiry in concluded
An officer of a local bank was on the
Htand to-day. He testified that funds
derived from the big fee were placed on
deposit in the institution with which he
is connected. He said that checks were
drawn against it in the sum of $:s,(mn
These checks, togethei with the ledger

.Washington, Jan. .1 Prc-id.-nt Taft
tried to-day to reconcile the difference
between Senators Curtis and Itristow of
I Kansas. The President went so far as to
turn over the Cabinet room in the. execu
tive offices to the two Senators and took
a personal interest in the conference,
which lasted for more than an hour.
There are four Keel era I jobs in Kansas
to which appointments are to bo made.
When Senator Hri-tow jumped the reser
vation last year Mr, Tnf t turned to Senator
Curtis, an old line regular. Since Mr
Taft's declaration that he will restore' all
patronage to Insurgents, Senator Itris
tow has come into nis own again, The
two Kansas Senators, however, are as
far apart now as they were last year
The President Bought to have them
agree on candidates for the four vacant
places, but theyoculd not. Hoth Senators
admit that at present it looks impossible
for them to get together and the President
is Rornewhat embarrassed, as he has un
proved recommendations made by Sena
tor Curtis for three of tho four places, but
i- unwilling to send them to the Senate
nnd have them held up by Senator Itristow

Washington, Jan. 5-Tho death of
Senator Stephen It. Klklns of West Vlr-
ginlu brings the Hepnhllcan majority
In the Senate in the next Congress down
to eight. 'Hie West Virginia Legislature
went Democratic in the last, election,
retiring Nnthan Hay Scott, Hepublicati
The death of Senator lilUins means that
West Virginia will be repre-entiil by two
Democrats after March t next
There are nine States witli Democratic
Legislatures that are now lepresented,
at least in part, by Itepublicaii Senators
Two or three of these Hepublicati Sena-
tots aie fur from being In robust health
nnd it is possible that there will be fur
ther Democratic gains before the next
election comes around When the pos.
ihilily of deadlocks in the Legislatures
of Massachusetts and Delaware are added
to this contingency it le.ive- Hepublican-
in a somewhat uuea-y state of mind
The Democrat would have to gain
five more seats to obtain control of the
next Senate While such a change
hardly likely, the margin is getting so
narrow that the Democrats, with the
support of a few in-urgents, will be aide
to control 1 lie situation at any time.
The death of Senator t'.lkins opens up
the pos-iliility that the chairmanship
of the Senate Committee on Interstate
Commeri e, the committee in which im
portant iailro.ul legislation originates,
will go to an in-urgent Senator Kile in
had been chairman of this committee
for many years, taking a leading part
in the fight over the railroad rate law
m the Itoosevelt administrations and in
the struggle over similar legislation
in the la-t session of Congress
Shelby M. Culloiu or Illinois is ranking
ineinls'r of the Interstate Commerce Com
mittee now that Senator I'.lkins 1- gone.
If the usual rule of seniority were fol
lowed the place would go to him, but he
is well along in years and probably will 1
not undertake the chairman-hip Sena
tor Aldrich comes next in rank, but he
will retire voluti.irily on March t next.
Apixirently the first ranking Senator
eligible for the place is .Mo-es K. Clapp
of Minnesota, an insurgent Vext to
lilm come- Senator Crane of Massa
chusetts. I'ndonbtedly the Hepublicati
regulars in I he Senate will try to put Sen
ator Crane at the head of this important
committee. It is understood that Sen
ator Cummins of Iowa, the lnstiregent
leader, also has ambition- to become chair
man of this committee. The Senate
always has been punctilious in observing
the seniority rule in regard to committee
chairmanship and the rivalry between
the regular- and the insurgents In regard
to Senator Klklns's siiceeor will he
watched with interest.
The death of Senator Klkins removes
another of the Senate's old guard. That
ancient org.iuir.itiou is slowly disin
tegrating and after March I next it will
be largely a memory. The retirement
of Senators Aldrich and Hale next March

Charities Commissioner Drummond
wasn't ready yesterday to reply formally
.to the open letler uddressed to him by
the Sage Institute directors asking for
i details of the charges against tho conduct
of tho Institute In Its work at tho City
Hospital. Tho Commissioner wanted to
'sleep over the letter.
"An ordinary tniin," said he, 'would
have told them to get out after reading
this morning's papers. Hut I don't want
to bo hasty. There are. no charges
'against tho institute or Its workings.
I Ho iiiiestioti is ono of supervision, I
Intend to supervise anything In my de
partment us a matter of public duty.
"I notice that Dr. Theodoro O. Jane-'
way and his associates compare tho ad
visory council which existed when I eamn
Into oftlce with tho new one I selected.
The former council was almost entirely
ornamental. I thought that since wo
hail to have an advisory council wn might
as well have a good one. I put laymen on
it for good reasons. I apolnted Warren
Iioello In case wo should need a lawyer.
N. Taylor Phillips was put on because of
his experienco in Unancial matters.
Rudolph Hlock was named becauso I
knew ho was a friend of Mayor flaynor
and could tell the Mayor how things were
going. Dr. Copeland was appointed be
cause he represented the homoeopaths,
"I don't want a controversy, but 1 am
waiting for tlieso gentlemen to get off
their high horse and talk common sense.
In that event I feel that wo could get to
gether I shall certainly Insist on super
One of the directors of the Sage Insti
tute said that Commissioner Drummond
hadn't been specific enough in informing
the public what kind of supervision is
required. He said that a perusal of the
deed of .gift by which Mrs Sage turned
over the income of i;oo,li) for pathological
work In connection witli the City Hos
pital would make it apparent that the city
already has official supervision and that
an examination or tho "gentlemen's
agreement" drawn up between Commis
sioner Hebberd and the Sago directors
would show that the supervision was ex
tremely detailed, especially in the matter
or spending city money. What the Sage
directors object to is medical supervision
that might defeat, they think, the pur
poses or the gift. Dr Janeway made
public hu-t night an order which has come
from Commissioner Drummond to the
instutute directors The order reads:
"That in so far as the Itussell Sage
Institute of Pathology acts as a city
laboratory, its work be placed under tho
mipervisloti of the medical board of the
city hospital, and that a committee of
the said board composed of Dr. K. 'S.
Stearns, Dr. Harlow lirooks and Dr. D. S.
Dougherty be designated to confer with
the trustees or the Hussell Sage Institute
or Pathology with the idea or continuing
the future pathological work of tho insti
tute under such conditions as will be
satisfactory to all concerned."
Dr. Janeway had no comment to make
on this order, but it was ascertained that
the Sage directors do not feel kindly at
being placed under the orders of other
medical men and that the presence of five
houxropatliK in the advisor- council is
not especially pleasing to them.
