gone to Trenton. Mrs. Itoosevelt and
Miss Ethel, with Mrs. W. Kmlen Hoose
vlt, were up in the carriage drive wait
ing patiently in their uutomobiles.
The Colonel npiieured drat and waved
at a lithograph that an enthusiast, name
unknown, had stuck on a stick. He
stopped the reorters with a wave of his
hand, "Not a word, not a word," was
his emphatic declaration. "Tell all tho
boys that I am not going to say anything
now and that I am not going to see any
one to-night or say anything to anybody.
1 am going to ivst. I will ! in town
to-morrow night and will go to Washing

While he was saying this the Colonel
was shaking hands with trainmen,
porters and stray citizens and was walk
ing slowlv forward.
Silos Mclioan ran up and tnere was a
happy greeting in which it looked as if
Mr. McBean was going to hug tho candi
date. "Why, Silas McBean, I am glad to see
you!" the Colonel exclaimed. "Do you
know I saw your bov " Here the voice
dropped and the chief Bull Moose told
McBean something about the boy which
delighted tho father.
"How are you feeling?" somebody in
tho crowd shot out.
The expected answer came back.
"Still reeling like a bull moose?" was
"Do I look feeble?" and the crowd gave
m shout of approval of his looks.
"A splendid trip, Colonel?"
"Do you know it was the first time In
sixty years that u Presidential candidate

was tho answer.
Mr. llotchkiss managed to work his
wav through the crowd and caught the
Colonel's shoulder The candidate turned.
"Wlel. uon my word, llotchkiss!" he
cried. "Now," and the crowd heard the
candidate telling, the Slate chairman
that it was most imKrtant that Perkins,
Munsey, Dixon and Hotchkiss meet him
at dinner this evening. Mr. Hotchkiss'
said it. would be done.
Incidentallv afterward it. mild
that among the subjects to bo discussed
to-night willjlie the need for further trips

wants the men who are running his cam
paign to tell him what is doing all over
the country, to know where the weakest
spots ore, where lie can do the most good,
what about the State ot New York. He

and other memoranda to be ready for tho

The crowd was much larger up in the
automobile drive and it was inclined to
break into cheers, led by the unidentilied
man with the banner and something else.
There were more friends to greet and all
the others to say furewell to. I he photog

Mr. Dixon also testified that tlrorge
W. Perkins, Prank A. Munsey and Dan
It. Ilanna each contributed $25,000 to
his fund of $03,000. This brings the
total contributions of Mr. Perkins to the
Itoosevelt preconventlon campaign up
to $02,000. Mr. Munsey's total is $58,
000 and Mr. Hanna's $50,000.
Mr. Sheldon, In explaining the list of
contributors given to him by Mr. Illlss
In 180X, said that Mr, Hllss's purpose
In handing him the names was to In
dicate thu sources from which he had
been accustomed to derive revenue for
Mr, Sheldon had just succeeded Mr.
Illlss as national treasurer. Mr. Shel
don added, however, that such n large
proportion of the contributions was
from corporations that he returned the
list to Mr. Illlss becnuso It was useless
for him, In view of the law that had
been passed against corporations mak
ing campaign gifts.
Odrll tint llnrrlmnn Gift.
Mr. Sheldon In the eotirso of his testi
mony also referred to tho I landman
contribution of $240,000 In the 1904 cam
paign. He reiterated that this contribu
tion was made at tho solicitation of it.
II. Odell, New York State chairman, and
not nt the solicitation of President
Mr. Sheldon told the committee why
he was positive this 1210,000 was n gift
to the State committee and not to the
national fund. Ho said that In the ac
count of Mr. Jlllss for the ISO! campaign,
which he had hudltcd, there appeared ut
the bottom the following note;
"Heceive'i from several individuals
and paid directly to the Xew York Ite
publicun Stute committee, $240,000."
"1 believe," Mild Mr. Sheldon, "that
this fund was collected at the direct ap
peal of II. It. Odell and not tit the In
stance of Mr. Itoosevelt."
Mr. Sheldon said that In the HIIss ac
count which he audited the receipts
footed up to Jl.f'OO.OOO and the expendi
tures to about J1.SOO.000, and at the end
of the statement was the Item In regard
to the $210.00)1.
The statement submitted to the Sen
ate committee recently by Mr. Hllss's
son put the total oi the Hu4 fund at
over $2,100,000. so th:,t In this latter
statement Mr. HIIss oppar
the Harrlman contribution.

Mr. Sheldon declared thrt he hat been
moved to write Col. Itoosevelt a nubile
letter giving his understnn.ij- uf the
Harrlman $240,000 contribution becauee
he believed that Mr. Itoosevelt had been
misrepresented In thnt matter.

asked Senator Clapp,
"I do," said Mr. Sheldon. "There vas
no question of Roosr celt's election nnd
every kind of doubt as to Hlgglns's."
Representative .'.ohn W. Weeks of
-Massachusetts followed Mr. Sheldon on 1
tho stand. He tei titled that he had
raised $110,000 for the national. State
nnd Congiess campaign committees In
Massachusetts In J90S. Of this only
$20,000 was contributed by Massachu
setts big protected Industries, cotton,

Mr Cannon was a willing witness, but

Tho committee then passed from grave
to guy when Senator Joseph M. Dixon
of Montana, managerof Col Roosevelt's

Mr Dixon was on the witness stand

Chairmun CTapp explained briefly tho
resolution under which tho committee
was proceeding. He asked Senator Dixon
if ho had road the resolution and tho Sena
tor said he had not. Senator Dixon
continued his observations on tho char
acter of tho Inquiry.
"Tho tostimonv'up to this time indi
cates that this inquiry is directed solely
into the political campaign of Col. Itoose

popular impression of thoso who have

Members of the committee were trving

but he drove on.
"Don't you know that nearly all of the

times both men were on their feet glaring
at each other, and once or t wico it looked
like a iersonnl encounter
Finally Senator Dixon refused flatly
to answer Pomereno's questions and
Pomerene nskd for a ruling cimielling
him to answer Senator Clapp ruled that
Dixon should answer and the witness
si ill refused, whereupon Senator Pomerene
rai-ed the question that Senator Dixon was
a contumacious witness and demanded
that he I i required to answer.
The committee took the case under
advisement and Senator Pomereno pro
ceeded until hi" struck another snag
mid for tho second time raised the ques
tion Senator Dixon had made sweeping
charges that large sums had been ex
ponded In Is'lialf of tho other candidates
lor President. He had resatedly quoted
"a prominent Democrat" as his authority
In legard to the Wilson fund. Mr. Pom
erene demanded that ho name his in
full It liMiiiiioii Kumar.
"f)h, il was a common rumor and you
know it as well as I do that largo tiumsof
money were being collected and oxnended
for these various Presidential candidates,"
replied .Senator Dixon.
"You say that largo sums of money
were being expended for President Taft.
Will you give the name of your inform
ant? demanded Senator Pomerene.
"Well, you told mo for one," snapped
Dixon "You told mo on a street cur
while wo were riding to the Capitol that
the Tnft people were spending largo sunw
of money in Ohio,"

asked Senator Pomerene.
"I decline to givo his nurne." renlled
the witness, "It wbh a private conver

It was nt this point that Senator Pom
erene raised tho question of contumacy
on the part of tho witness.
A little later Senator Dixon resented
Senator Pomerene's questioning. ,

on his feet, "but I don't want to have to

"You'll not perform any such operation
on me," snarled Dixon.
Senator Dixon finally told tho com
mittee flatly that he would not givo any
names of his informants.
After vainly trying to get Sennt or Dixon
to give names, Senator Pomerene arose
and advancing toward tho witness com
menced to lecturp him.

The Keynote of Health
Is the Liver
Scientists havo definitely learned that
tho I.iver is one of the most important
organs of thu human system. It is the
sieve which seiaintit the good from tlm
twd, tho nutriment from the poison.
Allow tho Idver to become torpid or in
active, the Kiison is sent through the sys
tem and disease is tho result First you
become bilious and constituted and later
the consoiiuences are more serious, No
body can live as regular as a clock. In
order to enjoy life wo subject ourselves
to dietary Indiscretion, If the proper
remedy is then used the trouble is quickly
ended. A remedy which comes nearest
to the heart of tho people is a natural rem
edy. The natural remedy most widely
used is Hunyadl Janos Water, the Natural
Laxative. Its natural combination is
wonderfully effective in Biliousness, Tor
pid Liver and Constipation tumblerful
oloansiw the Liver, flushes the intestines,
purifies the system and is gentle, spesdy
and sure. Don't tako substitutes; they
are worthless imitations and may be harm
