The Colonel reail to-dav the testimony
In referents to the llarrlman rampiilitn

In It that he ha not already an

HalelKh Audltorinui tii-nluht Col.
ItuiMiVctt tallied abuiit tobacco. The
people hue know more about tobacco
than the people of the North and West.
So when the t'olonel spoke about what
he would do to (lie tobacco trust If
he vvcte elected he touched a point of
local Inleict. Tills Is what he said;
"i mr opponents hae nothing to offer
about the trusts except what has been
done with some slight modification of
detail. No modification of detail would
make the decree nttalnst the tobacco
trust amount to anything. -My proposal
is not lo do damage to business but to
Mop and punish the crookedly mail'
"Snili a showing as set out by the
Supreme Court dercee In the tobacco
case would warrant the appointment
of a receiver by th (government for
that trust Just as would be done in the
c iso of national banks which went
. n.eke'il. Tne tiov eminent should at
nine put. the trust Into the hands of a
icceiver, who would run the organiza
tion until every thlni? decided to lie
wroiiK had been set rliOit ami the re
ceiver reported to the corporation com
mission that every object had bpeu
remedied. Then and not until then
should the old ownerb come back, and If
they lepeated the vvronK they should
suffer the same thine over nsaln."
Two thousand people welcomed tho
Colonel at Ashevllle at t:10 this innm
irK anrl l.inje crowds greeted him at
the various stops the train made on

Ill addition to the coiitribtitioiis listed

Tho total of contributions to tho ltoose

as lua.Wu.iK.'. Some of this money was
sent into the Slates to aid compaii'.us
1'or uiample, the ltoosevelt committee

"Tlm Secretary of State of New York
complimented me on the detailed and
complete character of our report." said
Mr. Hooker, "and compateii it with the
report of the Taft matianers on expendi
tures in New tir: county, which showed
only J.-..000 spent "
Mr. Hooker Intimated that he believed
the Taft managers had not been frank
in makltiic known expenditures in the New
York county primaries. Of the National
Committee he said that its e.pniidltuies
were the "most economical of any ever
made in any Hlitical campaiKii ever
wilKeil in the county "
"Kxcept, of coulee, the remarkable
campaign carried on for .Mr. Taft in tin
New York county primaries," the witness
added, with a sarcastic smile.
"How many votes were cast for ltoose
velt in New Yolk county?" inquired Sena
"We have never been able to find out,"
the witness repliisl.
"Well, the State of New York lias a law
requiring the making of returns'?" qm.rcd
Senator I'omeieiio, affecting impatience
'Ihe witness explained that the pri
maries vvert "a farce."
"We were too sior to provide watchers
at the polls
"What are watchers?" inquired the
Mr. Hooker explained. He observed
that most of tlio ltoosevelt workers wen
"amateurs." "They were not all amateurs," ob
served 'Senutor Oliver. "I think theie wen
a few prominent exceptions." glancing
knowingly at William Klinn of Pittsburg,
who was in tin room. Mr. I'liim acknowl
edged the compliment ly a sickly smile.
Senator I'omereiie took the list of con
tributors to the national fund and going
through the names asked for the identi
fication of each.
"Who is Alexander Cochran?" he in
quired. "A young business man in Yotikers,"
replied Mr. Hooker.
"What is his business?"
"He inherited a carpet business from
his father. He is the Progressive nominee
'"1 see he gave $11,000," observed Sena
Another carpet dealer appeared in the
list of contributors when the name ol
(J P. Perkins was read off, who had
"Col. Hoosovelt's son works in his estab
lishment." explained Treasurer Hooker.
"Is he a relative of (leorge W. Perkins?"
Nom, I believe."
Ityron I. Smith of Chicago, another
contributor, turned out to bo president of
the Northern Trust Company.

Osoar Straus gave tint J.VkI. Mr Hooker
admitted lie gave tl.lKHI. When the name
of a woman contributor for f.i,000 was
read Ihe treasurer said:
"She is my sister-in-law. "
Other contributors to tin Roosevelt pro
convent ion campaign fund were: 11 I,
Stoddard, St.ooo; William Harbour, Ji.fjOO;

Hamilton Klsh. it.iKiO; I)r Albert Shaw,
M.boo; Frederick Whit ridge. Sl.non; Judge
William H. Day, president of the Kquitahle
Life Assurance Society, K3ii,
When tlm witness was comnlainim: of
the lack of money to provide watchers
and challengers in tin New York county
primaries Senator Pomerene inquired:
"Do you mean to say that if you had had
more money you would have got more
"I suspect we not as manr ns President
Taft, but we can nover know, for we could
not compete with the bipartisan ma
chine in New York in tho counting."
Explaining expenditures tho witness
said salaries were low.
"Wo appealed to patriotism. We hail
no organization, no machine. Many of
our workers were volunteers, Most of
Us were amateurs at the game. "
'Hie treasurer admitted that the com
mittee, paid the expenses of Col. ltoose
velt and ex-Sonator Ueveridge on their
tours in the middle West and that it was
expensive. Tile sum of $t,577 was Hpent
at the Republican national convention
ut Chicago for headquarters and other
things. Other oietidlturcH were H.oou
for salaries, Itl.tMiii for printing, $7,n!X) for
advertising and 1(I,7iki for travelling
The witness declared that lie had no
personal knowledge of what, money was
spent in the States outside of that supplied
by the national organization. He hud
remarked earlier in his testimony that
Senator I .a I'ollotte's managers had
plenty oi money.
When he was being pressed later in tell
what ho knew about campaign contri
butions oilier than those shown in ills
statement In admitted that ho could
give the comunuee somo knowledge as
10 money contributed for other candi
dates. Tlio members of tlio committee perked
up and called for tho disclosures.
Nays Crane tiave 70,000 In xVllnnn.
"I know that Charles R. Crano con
tributed more tl.in $70,000 to Senator I,a
Follntte's campaign fund and a like sum
to Uov, Woodrow Wilson's campaign,"
said Mr. Hooker.
"How do you know It?" Inquired Senator
"Charles R. Crano told me," replied
"You mean ho gave 7(),noo to Senator
La Toilette's campaign for the Republican
nomination and then, since the Ilaltimore
convention, gavo tiii.ooo to Woodrow
Wilson's cumpalgn fund?" queried Senator
"No, I mean lie gave to Mr. Wilson the
sum mentioned to aid his nomination in
the pie-convention campaign "
A mild sensation followed this state
ment and Senator Paynter, who is u
Democrat, looked pained, Senator Pom
erene, another Democrat, took the witness
in hand and asked for the details.
"Mr. Crane is a thoroughly honorable
Nsver mind about Mr. ; Crane. He
needs no certificate," Interrupted Senator
Mr, Hooker then told the committee
that .he,, met "Mr. Crane in the Chicago
Club several 'months 'ago. In March, tie.
cording to his best recollcctiomi, and Mr
Crane told him linn that he hud already
Riven S7(l,o to I,a Toilette's campaign
and was giving al llietiileof f l.tHHin, week.
"I have no doubt," said Treasurer
Hooker, "he gave lunch mote than tlm
$70,00(1 before he got through "
The witness declated thai lie could liol
have been mistaken; that Mr. Crane
mentioned his.Oontriliiltioii of $711,000 lo
Wilson's campaign in, the same con
versation, and only a tew weeks ago
Hs'alled tlie cotiVcrsathei while 'ravelling
with the witness on a train between Chi
cago and New York.
Mr. Hooker expl.iims.1 that Mr. ( nine

a Progri'ssive President, and lie accounted
