II Statements by Chairman Clapp. and
K other members of the committee that
K those men had been summoned did not
IK , fiilence Senator DLvou'h demands, or his
K assertion that Colonel Pooscvolt was
l not getting a "square deal." The
fij charge brought a sharp retort from
If Chairman Clapp, who said the sraie-
1? roent "reflects upon the one member
E S of this committee who is friendly to
CI Colonel Roosevelt."
K Senator Dixon uecountcd for over
If- $06,000 more of Roosevelt funds used

tional committee at Chicago. This was

H. painn activitv from the Washinctou
, Tho fund handled by Senator Dixon
was largely contributed by George W.
I Perkins, Prank A. Munsey and Daniel
JJ-. Ilanna. The sonator said ho tried
I to distribute the burduu equally among
1 tho three men, and thought each had
given about $2o(000; while William
JJno gave $10,000, and others smaller
This fund of $96,000 waa in addi
tion, he said, to tho $163,000 handled
by 13. II. Hooker at JJow 1'ork for tho
city primary light and the sew" York
branch of the national Roosevelt com
mittee and tho $102,000 given by Wil
liam Flinn in Pennsylvania. Tho
amounts contributed by Mr. Perkins,
Mr. Iunsoy and Mr. JJanna wore also
in addition to their contributions to
tho New York fund.
Senator Dixon said ho would toll
anything he could about the Roosevelt
funds; but he insisted that the commit
tee show as much activity towaril other
candidates as it had toward the Pro
gressive candidate. JIo said ho had
boon informed that largo sums had
been contributed for the support of
Taft, "Wilson, Underwood, Harmon and
it Only Common Rumor.
5 Attempts by Senator Pomercne to get
tho names of the informants brought on
E a. bitter exchange, in which "senatorial
I' courtesj'" was abandoned. Twico Sen-
1' ator Pbmcrene appealed to Chairman
I Clapp to compel senator Dixon to give
5 names of men who knew about these
funds. Senator Dixon said what he
I had stated was "common rumor,'' and
I that he had received much of his infor-
5 mation from Roosevelt leaders in the
I different districts whoro it was hard
to pin down information to certain
I "I can't tell these things in detail,
and you know that when you ask tho
c questions," he added.
After Senator Dixon had admitted
I1 he did not know what arrangemonts
' tho committee had mado for mvesti-
l gating the funds- of other candidates,
f1 Senator Pomereno charged the Roose-
I velt manager with attempting to
5 " slander the committee."
Wanted to Fight.
1 Senator Dixon's reference to cam-
i paign activities for Governor Harmon,
3 whom Senator Pomcrenc had supported,
intensified tho feeling between tho two
"I men. When Senator Dixon demanded
F of Senator Pomercne whether Governor
l Jlnrmon had mado a public statomont
ifj of his expenditures, the Ohio senator
, half rose, grasped the arms of his
fii chair, glared at the witness, and. said:

The committee will probably hear to-
f( morrow, in addition to Mr. Morgan,
: .Tudge Charles H. Ducll, who was as
sistant treasurer of tho Republican
" committee in 1904.
fc Congressman John Weoks of Mas?a-
w chusetts was questioned as to cam-
E paign contributions by New "England
ft industries in 190S, previous to tho
f tariff revision of 1909. He said he had
f handled over $110,000 in national con-
gressional and state campaign funds
I that year, but that none of it came
ft; from corporations and none of it was
t' made as a result of tariff agitation

McTvinley of Illinois and representa

at which the impending tariff revision
was said to have been discussed.
When the committee met today to
examine Senator Joseph M. Dixon of
Montana, Colonel Roosevelt's political
manager, its members were discussing
the senator's announcement of last
night that he would ask the committee
to call Chairman Hillos of the Repub
lican national committee, and Chairman
McCombs of the Democratic national
Tho senators pointed out today that
it already had been announced that

vigorously resented the Montana sen-
ator's criticism of tho committee and, i
with Senators Clapp. Payntcr and Oliver,
iield -a private conference to determine
what was to be done.
The committee concluded its executive
session without announcing any action,
and J. G. Cannon took tho stand,
Mr. Cannon said that lie audited only
tho accounts of expenditures by the late
Mr. Bliss and had no Knowledge of the
contributors to tho fund. Specifically,
he said, he knew nothing or the $100,000
contribution John D. Archbold has said
Dixon Takes Stand.
Senator Dixon followed Mr. Cannon
and testified that lie had collected funds
other than those handled by Progressive
Treasurer Hooker, who Informed the
committee yesterday that the total expen
ditures of the Roosevelt national commit
tee were about $1 11,000.
"I would like to know the full scope of
tho Investigation," demanded Senator
Dixon. "Does this Include the Republi
can as well as the Democratic campaign
"Yea," replied Clapp.
"Of courfcc," continued Senator Dixon,
"the general impression Is that this Is
rather an Investigation of only pro
convention campaign fund of Colonel
Roosevelt. Now, as a member of the sen
ate I want to see t lie campaign funds of
President Taft, Governor Wilson and
Governor Harmon also Investigated. And
I think this should be done beforo elec
tion." Dixon Inflated he was sure the commit
tee was Investigating only Roosevelt's ex
penses. He said he wanted the commit
tee to summon the managers of Champ
Clark, Oscar W. Underwood, Governor
Harmon and President Taft.
Senator Clapp told the witness he had
already given out a list showing that all
the men named had been summoned and
he demanded that Senator Dixon answer

Kept No Books.
"1 didn't keep any books," he said, "I
spent the money as fast as I got It." .
One elevator man in the capitol. he
said, had given him $50.
"What do you know of efforts to
change the voles of southern dntogates
asl-d llsc f moneys" Senator Clapp
"Nothing except hearsay."' added Mr.
"Do you know by repute of any such
attempts, in which yon had a part or
acquiesced?" asked Kcnator Clapp
i ''NoA n hi"S." said Dixon. lie said
he collected no funds for the holding of
the Progressive national convention in
August; that the $1S,000 necessary was
all raised by the local committee fn Chi
Senator Dixon mentioned briefly the
names of those who handled Roosevelt
funds In eastern states. There wer
many "leaders of tho uprising In Illi
nois, bo said, "among them Chaunecy
Dewey. Modlll McCormick. ICdward 11.
hhuH and Alexander H. Uevell.
Mr. Dewey, he said, would know m'ont
about contributions". in Wixconaln "w
gave our moral support to the La Fol

Governor lladley would know most

thought: Kdward C. O'Rear in Kentucky:
George Taylor in Tennessee; J. A. Comer
In Arkansas: Cecil Lyon In Texas; Judge
Moore In Washington; Dan Kclllher and
Dr. Henry W, Coc in Oregon.
Senator Dixon Interspersed his replies
with a running firo of comment as to
how the. Roo:ievelt forces were "fore
closed" In certain states and "swept
nvory district" in others. Virginia was
"foreclosed" on them, he said; in Louisi
ana "the sugar trust took charge of the
Taft campaign", in Now Jersey they
"swept everything": In Florida and
other states the ofTIco holders opposed

When Senator Oliver took up Senator
Dixon's statement' of yesterday, the two
rnen got into a bitter argument, both
1 talking at once. Ho charged that tho
majority of the committee wb opposed
to Roosevelt and the entire investigation
appeared to bo directed against tho colo
nel. "Lot's have Mr. McCombs and Mr.
McAdoo brought here and find out how
much Governor Wilson spent. I'd Uko
to know how much Mr. Hillcs spent In
the Taft campaign," exclaimed Mr.
Oliver Was Willing.
He turned to Senator Pomercne, who
was active In the Jlacmon campaign, and
"I think Senator Pomcrenc might tell
us something about Governor Harmon's

Senator Dixon said he had sent some
money in reply to urgent demands by
Governor Hadley of Missouri for pri
maries in the lnrgnr cities of the state,
Senator Payntcr pointed out that tho

Senator Paynter asked If Herman

Colonel Rooflevelt, but he did not know
whether Mr. Frasch was connected with
Senator Dixon said that when lie "got
desperately hard up" he went back to
Perkins, "All the rest of the plutocrats
were for Taft," lie said. Senator Dixon
suggested that the committee summon
.Toslah Quincy of Boston, William A. Mc
Adoo of New York. George Harvey of
New York and William F. McCombs.
Through them, he said, he believed the
committee would find that a gentleman
named Penfleld of Philadelphia had
given 54S.00O to Governor Wilson's pre
convention campaign and $10,000 since
"I also suggest the calling of Thomas
F. Ryan." he said. "I have been reliably
informed that he contributed a largo sum
to the campaign of Mr. Underwood; that
A. II. Plant, auditor of the Southern rail
way, also gave to this campaign. I have
been informed that large sums wore
