: y y witness chnir for throe and a
half hours today before the
senate investigating coinmittoe, defond
inj his administration, himself and his
campaign associates against what he
termed "infamous charges" and
H ''hearsay evidence."
H 1 He appeared before the committee at
H his own request, to answer a statement
H made in August by John J). Arehbold,
H that the Standard Oil company hud
H given $100,000 to the Republican cam-
H paign fund in 1904, under the impros-
H sion that. President "Roosevelt knew of
HI and approved acceptance of the contri
buttons. K Sweeping Denials.
H'H Tt only did Colonel Koo3evclt deny
HEf1 thi?; but ho put into the formal rec-
II ords of the committee a swooping dc
Hiffl nial that ho had ever solicited funds
II' from anyone while president; thnt any
H I money had been received by tho 1904
H campaign committee with an express or
H ti implied promise of favors from tho ad
H ' ministration; that excessive funds had
H ! been used in his 190-1 campaign or in
I 2 the 190S campaign or that money ever
H had been improperly used in his behalf,
H . so far as he knew.
I ' In reference to the Ilarriman fund
I of $240,000. raised in 3904, Colouel
I Roosevelt declared the statements of J.
I P. Morgan, Gcorgo J. Sheldon and
I others had fully corroborated his
I ; earlier statements that this fund was
ifff vaised expressly for tho New York
Iff! state campaign and had not been so-
III licitcd by him for his own support in
Iff the fight for election that year.
If Denounces Penrose.
H "Senator Penrose should be driven
from the senate," he declared, "be-
IE cause of his acknowledged fricndli-
S ness with Standard Oil interests.

Bll bis campaign mauager. Wednesday,
HE that the senate committee 'h activities
HP had thus far been directed solely
Iff toward tbo Pooeevelt campaign fund
HI and that no attention bad been paid
Hfi to other candidates. He was assured
Hi b Senator Clapp that the roprcsenta-
Hl tires of other candidates would all be
HI called "before election."
HE ; Colonel Roosevelt arrived here
H early and breakfasted with William
H Loeb, Jr., formerly his private sccrc-
I Seats in Demand.
H I Several hundred peoplo were lined
H up in the corridors of the senate of
H s fiee building two hours before the time
H set for the -hearing, hoping to get
H I iuto the little committee room, with
H I its capacity for about 100. Seats bad
H been reserved by Chairman Clapp for
H I Georgo Rcid, Australian high commis-
H I sioncr, and Lady Held, who had been
H I Rooso veil's hosts abroad.
H i A murmur of excitement concluding
H with a cheer greeted Colonel Koose-
H - velt as he entered the building about
H ! five minutes before tho time set for his
H j appearance.

Kl ing that Governor lladley of Missouri

I havo written and signed about 100.000
letters, so It In not possible at .nice lo
recall all tho letters I have written on
any given subject.
"Looking through my letter books Hlnco
I wrote jny recent letter to Senator Clapp,
I have found two other lottery bearing
on campaign contributions. Ono was the
letter to Cornelius N. BIIhh In lfiOG. which
I understood was recently given to your
committee; the other a letter written to
Georgo R. Sheldon In 1908,"
-Colonel Roosevelt found the letter and
handed It to Senator Clapp, who had It
placed In the record. At (he chairman's
request, Colonel Roosevelt read the letter
dated September 21. 100S, and addressed
lo Georgo R. Sholclon. treasurer of the
Republican national committee. It was
practically as follows-
"I am informed that you or someone
on behalf of the national committee has
been soliciting contributions from corpora
tions, particularly from John D. Arehbold
and the Standard Oil company. If this
Is true. I wish to enter . vigorous protest
and say that not only should such con
tribution be -refused, but that If mado It
should be Immediately returned."
The letter set forth that four years bd
foro Mr. Cortelyou refused all contribu
tions from corporations which were being
prosecuted or were likely to bo prosecuted
and that Colonel Roosovelt wished the
same course followed in the IPOS cam
paign. Colonel Roosevelt also read the letter of
October 26, 1901. to Chairman George B.
Cortelyou, In which he declared that if
any money had been contributed ' by the
Standard Oil company or John D. Arch
bold it should be returned at once. This
letter was an emphatic declaration to Mr.
Cortelyou that "wo cannot under any cir
cumstances afford to take a contribution
that might he construed as placing us un
der an obligation."
Colonel Roosevelt said he had also
found that on October 2,7, 1901, he had
sent an extra telegram to Chairman Cor
telyou. This message referred to his let
ter to Cortelyou demanding return of the
Standard Oil contribution.
Colonel Roosevelt offered the committee
tho originals of all the letters he had sen;
to .Chairman Clapp. or had read into the
record, ' , ,,
."Now. In regard to the Ilarriman fund,
began Senator Clapp,
Colonel Roosevelt Interrupted and asked
to explain "tho charges that have been
made" In regular order and Senator Clapp
"There Is no testimony against mc, ex
cept In tho form of hearsay evidence,
the eoloned said. "Hearsay statements of
men that are dead." ,
Colonel Roosevelt said he had not In
tended to bring his former private secre
tary into the controversy, but that as the
committee had already determined to call
William Loeb. Jr., he had asked him to
bear out his statements.
"Mav I speak of a letter published in
Hearst's magazine from Congressman Sib
ley?" asked the colonel, and then went
"It Is a letter which In substance states
that Siblev came to see mo and spoke to
me about seeing Mr. Arehbold, and I said
T would be 'delighted' to see him and
askfd Mr. Siblev to bring Mr. Arehbold
to lunch. I don't remember ever having
talked to Mr. Sibley about that matter,
but it Is very possible I may havo done
so. Any invitation that I may have ex
tended was the result of a request of Mr.
Senator Bourne, he added, had once
brought Mr. Arehbold to lunch at Oyster
Morgan and Hill.
"I wish to call your attention to this
fact in connection with J. P. Morgan's
testimony yesterday. It was In my first
administration that the Northern Securi
ties case was settled with a verdict
against Mr. Morgan and James J. Hill.
It was also during my first administra
tion that I settled the anthracite coal
strike. I have understood that Mr. Mor
gan expressed vigorously his dissatisfac
tion at my attitude in that case and 1 was
surprised to find that he had contributed
to my campaign fund. No one connected
with Mr. Morgan ever hinted that the
contribution had been made and no one
ever hinted to mc that any favor had
been shown to Mr. Morgan for any rea
Colonel Roosevelt paid he first heard of
Mr. Morgan's contribution In the testi
Colonel Roosevelt then paid a tribute to
Cornelius N. Bliss.
Colonel Roosevelt insisted that during
the 1P01 campaign Mr. Bliss had assured
him that no promlso "express or Implied"
had been made in return for contribu
tions and that Mr. Bliss had never asked
him after his election for any favors for,
Colonol Roosevelt asked to make a fur
ther statement regarding his campaign
Forbid Use of Money.
"I saw tho different men who were In
terested in my campaign at Chicago and
pxplalned explicitly that I would tolerate
no effort of any kind, by the use of money
or the offer of patronage, to go for mc.
"The only time T ever 5a w It charged
was in reference to Ormsby XL. McIIarg.
I wrote a letter to hlm-and got an answer,
which I have here."
Colonel Roosevelt's letter "was written
March 4, 1012. and asked Mr. McIIarg
for his personal assurance "that he never
used monev or other Influence to sceuro
his delegates." Mr. McIIarg's reply read
"I unhesitatingly say that no reputable
man can say that I ever endeavored by
the use of money or the promise of pat
ronage to aid our campaign. I wish un
equivocally to deny that charge. I knew
that you would immediately repudiate me
If T did make any such effort."

Senator Paynter stated that Chairman
i;iapp nufi made tnc arrangements for me
committer and that ihj effort had been
made to treat "unfairly" tho Roosevelt
"Our complaint Is not that wo were
called here." interrupted Colonel Roose
velt, "but the men who make tho charges
were not called tlrst "
Wants C. P. Taft Called.
Colonel Roosevelt demanded that
Charles P. Tall, William B. M'Klnloy
and also Chairman McCombs and Vice
Chairman McAdn of the Democratic coin
mittoe be summoned.
"Vou can see it is hard on me," said
Colonel RoosevcX "to have to wult a
month to answer Mr. Aichbold's charges
and then to hav things so arranged that
the attention of the country is riveted on
the campaign expenses of the Progressive
party, while no attention Is directed to the
campaign funds of the other candidates."
"I assure you that If the committee
lives, the other men will be brought, here
before election." said Chairman Clapp.

The colonel reiterated his ilrst knowl
edge of f 100,000 contributions In 1004 by
J. P. Morgan or Gcorgo .1. Gould came
from the testimony of George R. Sheldon
Knew Frick Contributed.
"I knew II. C. l-'rlck had contributed
heavily and was ready to contribute
more," he said. "I did not know the
amount. Mr, Knox hnd told me that Mr.
Frlck was ono of my strongest backers."
"I had heard there, was a Standard OH
contribution," said the colonel, "but I did
not know that It came from Mr. Arch
bold." lie could not remember who told
Senator Paynter called attention to
Colonel Roosevelt's telegram of October
27, 1004. to -Mr. Cortelyou, asking that
the! Slandnrd Oil contribution be returned
"Did you understand there had been do
lay?" asked Senator Paynter.
"I could not get any reply to my let
ters," said Colonel Roosevelt. "Mr. Cor
telyou was out west, I think. I thought
tho money would be returned, but I
wanted to make It clear that In my mind
there was no doubt that the contribution
should be returned."
"Havo you believed all these years that
the Standard Oil contribution was not
made?" asked Senator Paynter.
Took Cortelyou 's Word.
"Cortelyou told me that and Mr. Bliss
told Mr. Loeb that; and only the other
day Mr. Cortelyou told mc that he had
been Informed by Mr. Bliss that no con
tribution had been made by the Standard
Oil company. I hud an explicit under
standing with Mr. Bliss and Mr Cortelyou
that no money was to be accepted If any
kind of conditions were expressed or Im
plied as to Its receipt, and tho money was
to be spent In any Improper way; such
as the buying of votes.
"Mr. Cortelyou told me of two In
stances of his returning contributions. One
of these as from a gentleman who, after
making a large contribution, mentioned
tliat ho would like to be a candidate for
minister to Belgium. The other was In
the caso of the tobacco trust and the In
dependent tobacco dealers."
"Both these contributions were re
fused." There was no rule limiting the
amount of a contribution, said the col
Never Asked for Money.
Colonel Roosevelt said he never wrote
a letter to auv llnancier asking him to
solicit funds. He said he had never au
thorized anvonc to collect funds except
bv the general authorization given Mr.
Senator Pomercnc asked Mr. Roosevelt
whether he had corresponded with "any
one In Chicago" relative to the collection
of funds In 1001.
"Not that I know of."
Of his letters directing a return of the
Standard Oil contribution. Colonel Roose
velt said the only accusation specifically
made about the receipt of money con
cerned the Standard Oil company, "and
that was the only one I considered it
necessary lo answer."
Senator romerene pointed out that Mr.
Cortelyou, as secretary of commerce and
labor, had general supervision of the bu
reau of corporations, prior to bis becom
ing chairman of the national committee,
and asked If Judge Parker's charges were
not genera allegations as to the unde
slrablllty of placing the supervising head
of the bureau of corporations in a posi
tion to collect funds from corporations.
"Yes, the charge was largely by in
nuendo," replied the colonel, "and 1 ills
like a charge of that kind more than
I do a direct charge. I like a man to be
Question of Favors.
Senator Pomercnc asked If it would not
be natural for corporations which con
tributed In 1001 to expect favors.
"It's impossible for me to say that any
man who sives a dollar docs not expect
a return for that dollar." said Colonel
Roosevelt. "But when I tell him he will
get no return, I can prevent his expect
"As a practical man, colonel." said
Senator Pomercnc, "don't you believe
that at least some of the big contribu
tors expected returns?"
The colonel grapsed the arms uf his
chair and half rose,
"Speaking as a practical man of high
deals, who has tried to put these idea!s
Into practice. I believe that when I tell
a man he will receive no returns, if he
then insists upon giving and expecting a
return he Is either a crook or a fool."
A wave of applause swept the commit
tee room and Chairman Clapp banged his
Senator Pomercnc asked about the con
tribution of the Steel corporation and
Colonel Roosevelt said that he knew only

gan s associates.
Frick 's Cash Available.
"If the contributors included Mr. Frick.
I probably knew in a general wav that
t had been made, because I knew Frick
had contributed. Mr. Frlck knew or mv
demand that tho Standard Oil contribu
tion be returned and he said thnt if that
meant a loss to my campaign he would
contribute more, although he had alrcadv
given to tho fund."
Colonol Roosevelt said ho knew noth
ing about contribution:) by life Insurance
"I 'Id you know how much was con
tributed by the beef interests?"
"I knew nothing about It. This Is
the sirsi JuggfKtlon I ever heard about
their contribution. I had alreadv moved

"I Kiipposed they were aguinst us." said
"Von snv you moved against the Stand

pany changed Its attitude and contrib
uted?" asked Swiator Pomeren.
"1 have no means of knowlnc," said the
Colonel Ro6seve!t said he knew nothing
of contributions by railroads: that Mi.
Cortelyou had informed him no funds
had been accepted from the tobacco In

returii-d, "that. I never said, either that
I did or did not believe It was made

I hiid heard that Rogprn had made one.
I heard It u ear or two afler tho cam
paign, but I understood Bliss did not
class him as a Standard Oil representative
because he had other large interests. I
know nothing about flic Arehbold contri
bution." "What evidence did you have that the
Standard Oil contribution was not, made?"
"Mr. Bliss Informed Mr. Loeb It had
not boon made." answered Colonel Roose
velt: "Mr. 'Cortelyou Informed me that

"Wart there any reason why Mr. Cortel
you should not havo full knowledyo of
whether the 5100,000 Standard Oil contri
bution wan returned?" asked Senator
"Not that 1 know of."
Assurances Were Given.
Colonel Roosedt said that In reply to
his loiters demnndnlg the return of the
Standard Oil subscription Cortelyou and
Bliss telephoned to Loeb and Cortelyou
canif to Washington and assured him no
such contribution had boon received. lie
had no knowledge of any "'conference of
big financial Interests In Now York to de
vise ways and means to support the Re
publican candidates." He knew nothing
of the appoint incut of a secret advisory
committee in U'04. or whether Mr. Harrl
man had been asked by Mr. Cortelyou
lo servo on such a committee.
Senator Pomorcno asked If the colonel
know Herman Fresch of New York.
"French of New York?" repeated the
colonel. , , . , ,
"I know so many 'Fresch men I feel as
ir I must ask ir T know tho man."
So he turned to Mr. Loeb, who Raid
Mr. Krcpch was In the sulphur bus ness.
"You see." interrupted the. colonel, It
may bo someone who has said .to me. I
am the man who waved the flag whon
vou came 'Into the station,' or something
"of that kind."
"This one seemed to be extremely anx
ious to wave your flag, for he contributed
f 10.000 to your pre-conventlon cam
paign " ...
"Then I shall make hlR acquaintance at
once." said Colonel Roosevelt with en-
' Senator Paynter said It had been sug
gested that Mr. Fresch was at ono time
connected with the Standard Oil com
pany. Colonel Roosevelt leaned back In his
chair, laughed and exclaimed.
"My dear senator, If anyone connected
with the Standard Oil company Is con
tributing to mc now he Is doing fo at
his own peril. I don't feel obliged to
warn him Do you think from Mr. Arch
bold's testimony he was In favor of mo? '
This brought forth a wave of laughter.
Colonel Roosevelt said he could give
the committee no Information of the ex
penditures of his managers In this year's
"It has been suggested that a largo
sum of money was 'underwritten to be
spent in the campaign. What do you
know about that?"
The colonel said there was "absolutely
no such arrangement."
"But on one occasion the expense of a
special train for a trip was underwritten
bv Mr. Perkins and Mr. Munsoy. I think.
The sum was later paid back." he added.
Colonel Roosevelt declared that at ono
point In the campaign, when Treasurer
Hooker brought him a clipping of a news
paper article to the effect that 000,000
had been raised for tho Roosevelt fund,
there was $1.67 In tho Progressive treas
ury. The colonel said he had no further in
formation and was excused.
