DEADLY PLOT BARED
ilSTBSLLOOIISIS
Mysterious. Accidents at State
Fair-Thought to Be Result
of Conspiracy:
T7 A. Phelps, tho balloonist at the
state fair, who takes up the
grizzly bears, had a narrow cs-'
cape from nn appalling death yesterday:
afternoon. Incidentally, there is a story'
of deadly plotting behind tho cause of
the accident that befell Phelps, if the
statement of all balloonists at the fair
grounds Is correct.
Phelps mado a tine ascent at 5:30 o'dock
yesterday afternoon. lie cut. loose the
parachute to which is attached ono of
the grlrzly bear cubs. The bear and his
parachute dcoconded in safety.
Then Phelps cut loose his own para
chute. Ho descended to within 100 or
1D0 feet feet of. the ground when five of
tho ropes broke by which the aeronaut's
hoop is attached to tho 'parachute. Slmul
tancoualy the parachute itself spilt.
-PhcIpB was swinging at the time in an
effort to make a convenient landing. To
this fact he attributes his escape, for as
ho swung the ropes broke -and he struck
tho "pole" of the race course with his
right hip. This served to break his fall
faomewliat, and while ho hit tho earth
with a terrific Impact, aud a sound as
though he nnut havn been crushed Into
iu mass, . .tho momentum had been suffi
ciently broken to save the full force
of the full. The attending physician and
tho few who witnessed the. accident are
of the opinion that Phelps 'would surely
have been- killed but for the presence of
the fence rail
Wife Bitten By Bear.
Willi all poHslble haste Phelps whs ro
moved in an automobllo to hit; Jodginga
nearby, whero Dr. A- H. Bower attended
him; It was found that tho aeronaut
was' not scrloiiKly injured, although Iho
shock wufl severe. Mis body showed tho
evidence- of his collision with ihe r.ico
track . fonco and he received numcroUB
scratches and bruises. No bone worn
broken and ho declared last night that
ho would tako part in thu balloon race
thla afternoon.
It was an untoward day for tho Phelps
family. Prior to the ascent of her hus

Story of a Plot.
After tho accident which liefell Phclpii.
the story of n. plot againut all tho bal

Tuesday two balloons were burned by
some one who has not been Identified.
One of tho burned balloons was tho prop

MORGAN TELLS
OF IKING BIG
CONTRIBUTIONS
Admits Giving $100,000 to
Roosevelt Campaign Fund
in 1904, and 50,000 More
Just Before Election.
CONFIRMS STORY
TOLD BY SHELDON
Financier Makes Good Wit
ness and Parts With Senate
Investigating Committee
on Best of Terms.
WASHINGTON, Oct. 3. J. Pler
pont Morgan told tho senate
contributions committee today
that while ho had contributed
$180,000 to the last two Repub
lican presidential funds, the gifts were
made "without expectation of roturn."
After saying ho had contributed $1G0,
000 to the fund of 1904, and 30,000 to
the fund of 1908, Mr. Morgan turned to
the committee and exclaimed earnestly:
"I want it distinctly understood that
J. P. Morgan & Company never made any
subscription to any olectlon with promise
j or expectation of anything or return In
any way, shape or manner, and wo
never made It without we deemed it ad
vantageous for the government and tho
people. We never had a communication
from any candidate. We never had an
application from any candidate for
money, and anything that we did, or
that was done under my suggestion and
we wore all In harmony was that it
was necessary for the good of the peo
ple and the business of tho people. Thero
never was a commitment of any expec
tation of any roturn, and we never got
any return, either, from anybody."
Repeated Denials.
Thin statement followed, a series of.
questions by Senator Pomercne as to
whather New York financiers had con
ferred and ascertained the attitude of
various candidates toward buslncas be
fore making contributions. Mr. Morgan
repeatedly denied that there was any
concerted action among New York busi
ness interests in support of the Repub
lican candidate in 1904.
Mr. Morgan said that after making his
original contribution of $100,000 in 1901
ho was importuned to give another $50,
000, which he did. This, ho understood,
was part of tho so-called Itarrlman fund
and was turned over to B. B. Odell for
the New York state fund.
Charles IT. Duell, assistant treasurer
of the 1901 fund, who followed Mr. Mor
gan on the atand, said that all the ac
counts of tho committee were open to
Mr. Cortelyou, tho chairman.
Roosevelt Today.
Colonel Roosevelt will b tha principal
witness before the commlttco tomorrow.
Ho will be questioned as lo his knowlcdgo
of contributions by corporations to tho
1901 fund and particularly as to tho eo
callcd Standard Oil contribution of ?100,
000, which ho said hs ordered returned.
Tho colonel will also bo asked as to the
financing of tho pre-convontlou campaign
for his nomination this j'ear.
Mr Morgan was a willing wltnoBa bo
fore the commlttco. At times ho chuckled
gleefully, as when ho told tho committee
that "there was no limit" to the amount
tho .Republican campaign commlttco in
1901 was willing to accopt. Mr, Morgan
took his heekUnp by the committee In a
holiday spirit and laughed heartily as, In
leaving, ho told Chairman Clapp that ho
"guessed" his expenses and witness fcc3
"would be all right."
Morgan Arrives.
Mr. Morgan reached the commlttco room
before the hour set for 'the hearing, ac
companied by ids son-in-law. Herbert I.
Sattcrlce.
Tho financier tugged at his mustache
as he took hl3 seat and watched the
members of tho committee closely.
"Glvo tho stenographer your name,
please," said Chairman Clapp.
"J. Pierpont Morgan."
"Your address?"
"Two hundred and nineteen Madison
avenue, Now York,
"your business?"
"Hanker."
Chairman Clapp called Mr. Morgan's at
tention to a published artlclo by Charles
Edward Russell, charging that President
Roosevelt had demanded that Mr. Mor
gan rale 5100,000 for hlH campaign and
that AVayno MacVeagh had been presont
when Mr. Morgan talked with the white
houso over tho telephone.
"Do you remember any such incident?"
naked Senator Clapp.
"Nothing whatever," replied Mr. Mor
gan, "I nevor corresponded over tho tele
phone, telegraph or by mall with Presi
dent Roosevelt that I know of," Mr. Mor
gan added, "nor with anyono at tho whlto
house.
'TJid you inako any contributions to
the Republican national campaign of
1904?"
Hir. Morgan adjusted Ills glasses and
looked at a paper.
"In. October, 1904, T gav0 $100,000; on
November 1 I gave another $50,000."
".nv more?" nuked Chairman Clapp.
"No', that's all I know of."
He said ho supposed the first contrlbu-

THAT MEN WILL WIN
Utah Copper Company Offi

Stand; Two Small Mines
at. Ely Resume.
TTAT mining operations will bo re
sumed at Bingham today or to
morrow, or at least not later than
the first of the coming week, was
the substance of reports that came
yesterday from apparently authentic
sources. It also was reported that tho
resumption of work would take place on
a small scale, employing ntrike-breakers
or formor employees who are willing to
return, and Increasing the number of
workmon gradually until the normal foroe
Is reached.
It is declared that several hundred
strike-breakers are at hand and uwalt
an order by mlno operators, principally
the Utah Copper company, to take up
their respective tasks at Bingham,
where. It is known, several hundred more
men will be available, having been forced
out of their Jobs because of tho strike but
not because they favored it.
Officials Are Silent.
Officials of the Utah Copper company
have rigidly held to their statements that
operations would bo resumed, but still de
cline to say tho exact time. Assistant
General Manager R. C. Gommcll, who was
iu Bingham "Wednesday and yesterday,
returned to Salt Lake last evening with
Superintendent J. I. Shilling, supposedly
to confer with tho company officials on
resuming work at the mines. .Neither
Mr. Gommcll, Mr. Shilling nor D. C. Jack
ling, vice president and general manager,
would last night affirm or deny that tho
Bingham properties would be opened
again today or tomorrow.
Apparently fearing a movement at once
that might bring trouble in the mining
camp, Sheriff. Joseph C. Sharp became
active yesterday. He ordered notices sent
to all men who had applied for positions
as deputy sheriffs at Bingham slnco the
strike was called and who had not been
deputized, by" which careful note was se
cured of tho applicants' addresses, tele
phone numbers and where they could be
readily reached, day or night.
While the sheriff declines to make a
statement, it is reported that he fears
there may be serious trouble if operations
aro resumod, and that he Is preparing
to rush a large body of deputies to tho
camp on quick notice.
Moyer Seeks Conference.
Charles IT. Moyer. president of the
Western Federation of Minors, returned
to Salt Iakfl yesterday afternoon from
ICly. Ncv. Ho made tho declaration to a
Tribune representative" that ho would be
willing to havo tho present strike situa
tion settled amicably at a conference of
mine operators and mine workers, or their
representatives, irrespective of unions.
Moyer also asserted that tho strikers
wcro in control of a complete tieup in tho
Nevada district, lie was quoted beforo

go within a few days to Santa Rita, N.

"I am willing to step aside and let the

declared Moyer.
Moyer was bitter toward the Utah
Copper and Nevada Consolidated compa
nies, which ho accused of Intimidating
smaller mine owners, He approved tho
suggestion that tho Commercial clubs of
Salt Lako and Ulngham make an cfforL
to effect a settlement, saying it was lo

Mr. Jackling Is quoted as saying he
