The words, "for temporary use," on
one of the vouchers, McCall said
meant that the money was to be used
for the purpose decided upon and to
be reported bark to the board. He
said the $100,000 had been accounted

The way the matter now seems to
stand is that $235,000 have been paid

pany to Andrew A. Hamilton, of Al

ney has been made except to Presi
dent McCall verbally, and that Ham
ilton attends the session of the legis
lature at Albany in the interest of the
New York Life company; and ail this
was brought out today by the testimo
ny given by Mr. McCall before the
legislative insurance Investigating
McCall said that various sums, mak
ing up $235,000, had been given Ham
ilton in connection with real estate
deals, but Attorney Hughes, after
considerable questioning, developed
the fact that none of the money had
been actually applied to such deals.
McCall said that Hamilton was al
lowed money for his expenses at Al
bany, and his accounts were not sub
ject to audit. McCall denied that he
ever gave Hamilton money to influ
ence any member of the legislature,
or that he advised such a course. The
$235,000, McCall said, he was sure
would be paid by Hamilton on de
mand or the New York Life.
"If it is not," said McCall," "I am re
sponsible and I'll pay it."
Hamilton received for legal serv
ices about $100,000 a year from the
New York Life. Campaign contribu
tions were given, McCall said, for the
support of the gold standard, rather
than for the republican party."
