When the two men, who supplied
Jfl.000 ball each, appeared before Com-j
mlssloner Shields yesterday the story of
the case was told by the Inspectors. It
began an tlcentred nround Cooper.
Cooper Is a member of the family
which controlled and ovvnid department
stores In several cities at one. time. Ho
himself was at one time nn otllcer of
the Slegel-Cooper Company In New
York, but that Interest was broken and '
now ho has no connection with that i
In 1?U3 Cooper formed the New York '
Central Realty Company with capital
stock of $fi,o(i0. Two years later this
was increased to 1200,000. Cooper was
piesldent of the company; members of
Ills family were Interested In It and It ,
was ngreed thnt at the outset the com
pany had a legitimate business, with I
lawful objects nnd proper methods. The 1
company did have property to repro
sent Its capital stock.
As a matter of fact the post ofllce
men would not say yesterday that any
person connected with tho outfit hnd

Iltsl tutu itireii inem into aivcriing mo
funds lecelved by tho sain of bonds Into
wildcat schemes In which there, was n
remote chance for enormous profits, but
n very big chance of failure.
When the capital stock was Increased
tn $200,000 In 1905. tho Inspectors said
yesterday, they had that much property
nnd they proceeded to Issue four classes
of bonds for general sale. One wns a
full puld coupon gold bond for ten years
bearing 6 per cent. Interest, rodeemahlo
under two years with 5 per cent. In
terest and after that at C per cent, It
guaranteed all your money back with
Interest at nny time.
Number 2 was nn accumulative gold

It being figured 4ml $71.",70 paid In ten

George W. Perkins, chairman of the
executive committeo of tho Progressive
National party, hatl a few remnrks, very
explicit of their kind, to make yesterday
concerning tho statement of Senator
Penrose on tho floor of tho United States
Senate that ho had underwritten a fund
or $3,000,000 to procure tho nomination of
Col. Roosevelt in the Republican national
From the start or the Roosevelt move
ment Mr. Perkins has been fnmiliar with
every detail or it nnd has boon associated
on most intlmato terms In its progress
witli Col. Roosovelt and Senator Dixon,
chairman or tlio Progressive National
Committee. Moreover, it may bo stated
without fear of contradiction that no
moneys from any source or by any man
havo been received without personal
knowledge of Mr. Perkins.
The statement of Mr Penrose in the
United States Senate," said Mr. Perkins,
"that I or any man connected with tho
Progressive party or with tho cause it
represents had underwritten a fund of
$3,0o0,ooo to procuro Col. Roosevelt's
nomination Tor President in tho Republi
can national convention is an astounding
falsehood. No man knows the nature of
that untruthful statement moro than Mr
"In tho first place, Mr., Penrose has
committed n base libel on the peopVs of
his own State of Pennsylvania. Then
again, Mr. Penrose has committed n
wnntoii slander on all the good men and
women who nro interested in this great
"Not to stop nt that, I havo no hesi
tation in declaring that he hns committed
a wanton slander on the 1,170,103 Roose
velt men and women who went to the
Presidential preference primaries in the
States of California, Illinois, Massachu
setts, Maryland, Nebraska, New Jersey,
North Dakota, Ohio, Oregon. Pennsyl
vania, South Dakota nntl Wisconsin."
"The trouble with Mr. Penrose," con
tinued Mr. Perkins, "is t lint money has
always been nnd is to-day his (Militical
yardstick. Hn measures every accom
ilihment in ilitlcs by tho use of money.
That has been his training. Tlio fact of
the matter Is that Roosevelt's victory
at the primaries in tho States where Presi
dential preference primaries were held
was so colossal nnd so inconceivable to
Mr. Penrose that he can uscrlbo its uc-,
compli-hrnent only to the use of money.
He can measure no victory in iiolitics
except by the use of money. Just think
of the sail state into which his political
temperament has sunk.
"As a mutter of fact the primaries in .
these States ditl not cost $3,0W,0oil nor
$2,000,000 nor $l,uno,ooo nor even fioo.ooo.

"Those who nre familiar with this
progressive movement," continued Mr.
Perkins, "and thousands of outsiders who
havo not ns yet joined our cnuso knew
full well last spring llint there wns un
uprising of tho pooplo against condi
tions which have pi o vailed in xilitlcal
parties for tlio last half dozen years,
The peoplo had awakened to these condi
tions. It only needed tho slightest in
centive to bring this uprising lo a head.
"Tills was done by us when we sent
literature into nil of theso Presidential
primary Stntes and called tho attention
of tho voters to the very conditions which
they already knew existed. They were
rlpo for on uprising. They had been
surfeited with knowledgo of o!itical
bosses Interested in buying nnd soiling
"This literature which wo sent into
these States was merely like applying a
match to un nlreatly overloaded cannon.
It wns only such inon as Mr. Penrose
and men of Ii!b olitlcal training nnd en
vironment who were not nvvaro of the
temper of tho people. They thought
they could go on In the same old way, and
they wore overwhelmed when they woro
told by the people that present conditions
could not longer exist and that tho day
of tho oltl political boss bargaining und
trading for place and putronac.o coidd
no longer exist
"No amount of money could havo no
oomplishfsl this uprising, either in Illi
nois, Minnesota or any or the other Presi
dential primary States; nnd I reiterato
when Mr. Penrose made that statement
on thn floor of tho Senate that I, or nny
man, or uny set or men, hnd underwritten
a $;i,(kki,ooo syndicate fund to bring about
Roosevelt's nomination in tho Republican
national convention lie uttered a wanton
Blander on tho people of theso States.
"It wasn't necessary to spend monoy.
This opposition to theso political bosses
of tho type or Mr Penrose lias boon u,
continuous nnd accelerating, force for a
number of years. Mr. Peuroso now knows
personally what thin uprising has done
for him in Pennsylvania, It has retlretl
him forover from American politics.
"Hut, to Mr. Penrof o's mind," continued
Mr. Perkins, "this victory could not havo
been accomplished except nt a cost of
$3,000,000. How does lie nirlve at thai
figure? How does ho hit upon that amount j
as tho ono necessary to accomplish such
a triumph? Why. with his train ng.
monoy being always his political yard
stick, ho said to himself such a colossal
viotory ns that could not possibly have
cost less than $3,000,000. Ho meant that
such a victory would have cost Mr. Pen
rose nntl the politicians of his type that
amount. That is how he hit upon the
flguro of $3,000,000. Mr Penrose nntl the
politicians of his time mid day hnve been
blind; thoy haven't seen nnd they haven't
known the dissatisfaction nnd unrest
among tho peoplo over political condi

and Massachusetts. This newspaper tell I

doubtless say thnt these good peoplo .

"The Republican national con eat Ion

from subscriptions und from hotel sub
scribers $10,ooo. We had a slight profit

Mr. Penrose's chief political argument
lieinir mnnev. will ho tiresome to nav that
tho 15,000 good men and women who at-1
tcntlod that convention and witnessed 1
scenes which havo not been paralleled in j
tho history of party conventions within
fifty years and more for earnestness, I
downright zeal for what is right in Amer-1

sutne to say that those gootl men and i
women wero hired to attend that conven- 1
tion? Tlie delegates to that convention j
went there at their own expense nnd paid ;
their own hotel bills.
"Mr. Penrose now known what this up
rising means. The peoplo of Pennsyl

will resent Mr. Penrose's wanton slander, i
"Mr. Taft's campaign Is already in the j

That these plain people, these good, hard
working men uro enlistetl in the Penrose 1
cause, n cnuse which lias always tx-en
measured high nntl low, by and wide by
the use of money."
"I bay again," said Mr. Perkins in con
clusion, "that the peoplo of this country 1
for a half dozen years have lieen awake

came liko a tornado. It is a cyctono !

way of this cyclone and he amounted Just I
about to a fly on a wheel. But his wanton .
slander on the good men and women who,
voted at tho Roosovr'.t primaries last I

John D. Archbold testified before th
Senate committee Investigating cam
paign contributions yesterday that lio
wns told by Cornelius N. Itliss, who col
lected tho $t00,000 contribution of tho
Standard Oil Company In 190-1, that
President Roosevelt know of the contri
bution nnd that It was accepted with
his knowledge and consent.
Archbold further testified that when
the Standard Oil Company refused to
give up $130,000 moro ho was warned
by Rllss thnt tho refusal was a mistake,
nnd n eerlcs of attacks on the company
Senator Pcnroso followed and reiter
ated what Archbold has eald, addln;
that In a tnlk with Roosevelt tho latter
did not deny receiving the fund. Pen
rose will insist that Roosevelt be sub
pirnaed ns a witness.
Col. Roosevelt In n statement yester
day denied that ho had requested or
knew of any Standard Oil contribution
ns testified by Mr. Archbold.
Tho Colonel assailed Mr. Archbold
for his testimony about Itliss, which
the Colonel said ho did not bellevo
nnd which ho considered a cruel nttaclt
on a dead man.
The Progressive candidate charged
that the testimony of Archbold, coming
after the story told by Mr. Penrose In
tho Scnato. coupled with tho nature
of thn questions asked of the Standard
Oil head, looked like, a "frameup."
Mr. Roosevelt asserts 'that Mr. Arch
bold lied to him when tho oil suits were
being prepared and asks why the oil
man did not collect then tho privi
leges which wero-coming to him as
a result of his $125,000 contribution,
If they were due.
Ho suggests that the relationship
between -Mr. Archbold nnd Mr. Pen

Commission should bo examined.

that tho $3,000,000 fund story told by
Senator Penrose was a falsehood and a

Kurd to the Standard Oil Company'
contribution of $100,000 to the Roosevelt
1901 campaign fund nnd tho subsequent
effort to obtain an additional (160,000
from the same source,
Mr. Archbold In his testimony before
the Somite Investigating committee
went further even than did Senator
Penrose. Ho charged in effect that
President Roosevelt's attacks upon tho
Standard Oil Company wero Inspired by
the falturo of the company's directors to
give up the $160,000 that waa asked for
by Mr. Roosevelt's national treasurer,
the late Cornelius N. Bliss.
He testified that Mr. Bliss himself had
expressed tho fear when tho Standard
Oil directors turned down this request
that they were making a mistake. About
a year after tho election Mr. Archbold
and Henry II. Itogcra went to Mr. Bliss
to protest ugalnst tho attacks Just
starting on tho part of tho Itoosovoit
Archbold testified with a considerable
show of feeling that Mr. Bliss acknowl
edged then that things might have been
different with the Rtundard Oil If it had
honored tho second request. Mr. Bliss
